It's it's like you four because nobody could score like, so I kind of enjoyed it. But I do expect it I'm in the minority there and the ratings are down decades the lowest possible rating, really. Yeah. They came out with it. Oh, yeah. Surprising. The Rams away. Those are the markets. They wanted right? We've had enough enough of Bob Kraft dancing with Cardi B. Maybe not everybody.

I drew the analogy. I mean, this is like this is approaching like, Bobby Sands hunger-strike territory, man. I mean, we're getting into like, by the way. Dog mad respect at this point. You know, what I mean, even the oppressive British at some point had to respect Bobby Sands commitment to Bobby Sands.

I mean, listen Super Bowls over the what are they looking to do? Stop in the British weren't leaving Northern Ireland either buddy. So he didn't stop. You know what I mean? So anyway, the point being that the many people were saying if the saints, and this is hypothetical if the saints were in the game data scored points, drew Brees would have gone underneath copes. There's more Baldy out there calling out Gough for not releasing the ball was not coughs. So we how many I keep talking about. Joe now, I'm back on my Joe kick. Right. You don't want back on my kick.

Did you give it to? I mean, I thought Stefan Gilmore was deserving Hightower. Had two sacks, right? After starting in a defensive game. You probably should have taken just given was relentless though. He was in in the Rams never figured him out. They never get whether it was to leave or Peters or they never figured out how to Dublin they never figured out a Chuck them. They never figured out how to stop them off the line disrupt him, and he's just he was he was as open as the day is long. It was just an I just thought we were. I felt like it was a box score MVP was let's look and see who had the best game offensively. And that's kinda who got well, you know. And if you're going to get into sometimes gives the giving out of an MVP and a Super Bowl can sometimes be sort of an artificial thing. Brady you thought possibly, right? Talked about sixteen when Montana got it. It was like isn't that great again? You give it to the quarterback defensive players have won eight in our lifetime ever, Larry Brown. The Cowboys game proposed in high like in retroactive MVP handing out. Let's give it a Dan bonds for that goal line tackle in eighty one or eighty two actually I'll give it to Archie reach for pumping his fist pump was good. So anyway. Copes and you look at a kid like Jared Goff in Sean McVay, and you think of it in terms of the forty Niners. Does this? Does this slow the Rams role enough that the ninth enroll in gos- still gonna be wandering around in a daze next year when they come to leave is not come on. Yeah. Sean McVeigh he's got his act together. They just they I said it briefly this morning. I think having gone to Super Bowls in the past as a veteran team. Like the way the pats are relative to the Rams having to go through this for the first time two weeks of waiting all this stuff. Overnight. David a great point. He said the Rams also had to answer questions for two weeks about the saints. Yeah. Right. They didn't get a chance to move by the way. Did you guys? See New Orleans didn't stop. They March in the city ice cream. Mama's starting to respect how insane they are. I mean, these guys are out of their mind. Interesting. You've already flipped so now you're onboard. We'll have gone so long. Three. Bobby Sands hunger strike in the prisons, dude. It's incredible. Okay. Now, let me just stick up for the Rams one little bit here. Just for the hell of it. Because we got four hours to kill on a ridiculous Super Bowl, right? This is I'm telling I'm ranking all time great stands one Bobby Sands Northern Ireland two the saints fans after the Super Bowl. By Trump and a Santoni strokes deep geopolitically. Yes, they did in nineteen Eighty-one a bunch of Irish prisoners went on hunger strike to protest Britain's occupation of Northern Ireland. It was legendary was global news in one guy the leader the leader, Bobby Sands. He went the distance. You can only to the house you stick it to the house. He was like, that's it. Now, there's pain. Even at the end. They're like come on, bro. Some water is like no f Britain a went down. He went down still talking about them forty years later it worked. Saints fans in the streets to her neck three top three came into. Okay. The NFL's completely hollow attempt to cozy up Luther King before the game. There's kind of a failure. You guys won't even employ this guy for. I was I was kind of offended but the simplest non violent gesture that Colin Kaepernick has done. He can't get a gig. And now you're coming in and telling us that you guys are best BFF's with the king family mad, really bad for. Yeah. It was really bad for him. Anyway. I'm stick up for the Rams two things one. There was a point in the third quarter where they started to put it together girly broker run. First down away holding on. I'm not Sullivan. I think call it on Senator John Sullivan. No replay ever never saw it. We're like, wait. Okay now..

"His first three feature films were all tough-minded in harrowing taking on subjects seldom tackled in commercial cinema. Hunger in two thousand eight about the nineteen Eighty-one hunger strike by Irish nationalist, Bobby Sands, filthy, twenty eleven shame a drama about sex addiction again starring Michael bender. And then the breakthrough of twelve years a slave in twenty thirteen which won an Oscar for best picture and a directing nomination for McQueen with that history song. Critics wonder why McQueen would now turn to the well-trod. John reid. I don't know what the surprises because I want to go where I feel the best stories. So that could be anywhere. It's genre. We're kind of used to it. It has its own particular tropes. Where it I've seen you earlier films. I think they they're exploring something that in many ways, we haven't seen before we haven't seen before in this picture. The conventional always has to be broken because otherwise we see the same film all the time. I mean, that's Hollywood really that's not how I wanted to sort of handle this particular understanding of high speed, indeed, this is a heist film with a twist many of them McQueen adapted it from one thousand nine hundred eighty s British TV series of the same name in which the widows of men in a gang feves attempt to carry on after their husbands killed land. Make sure Queen watched it as a boy and a seed was planted just related to the protagonists these women who were not capable and being judged by their parents. Johanna was being looked upon as job in under. The time husbands aren't coming back. This film. Transplants and updates the action to present day, Chicago. I've learned from your late husband and my father. That you reap what you hope. So it has an all-star in diverse cast led by viola Davis Veronica forced to take on a dangerous scheme after the violent death of her husband played by Liam Neeson. Has been left me the plans for his next job. Just pull it off. Protest you anyway, because I'm the only one standing between new bullet in your head. Embedded.

And then the last that I'd ask you is one that came year after deadpan nineteen ninety eight drummer, I guess each one of these is completely different that's ideal. But this one is pretty inventive. What you did there with that? Yes. To cameras three cameras. In fact, an oil drum one on each access of the drum one sort of on the side of it been a tilted it on it. So I've enrolled at around Fifth Avenue and so at that period of your life. How do you make money doing that sort of thing? It's obviously everything's about money. No, of course. But you well know things about money. I didn't I didn't. I don't I'm not interested in that sort of you know, if that's. Limitation put on Maidan IRA again. I think you wouldn't offerings. I wouldn't do. That's not my aim. I totally hear you. And I respect that. But you have to eat, right. Yeah. But how'd you make money? I mean, it's it's kind of an old question. Maybe brainless bashful about dog about money in those. But that wasn't my name. And I guess I'm thinking though. Eaten? Yes, I'm close. So you go. Okay. So one other thing that just obviously was attorney point after those earlier works. It seems like you are not particularly interested in narrative at all in those earlier years. I mean is forms of narrative. I think again, this classical story kind of narrative, everything's a narrative, everything you look at his narrative and anything even gawk. So the painting sunflower there's an article in there. Right. I mean, again, yes, it's much most of oversea let's classical less than once upon a time in the end. But you can always find a story within an image. Always. So what happened I guess in two thousand seven that led to you being able to make a feature film for the first time was that even something you had the desire of doing or how did that come about? No. I I mean, of course, Wednesday. Why you and I was interested in film. But you know, again, it's to me the subject Dimond the form of it wants to be and the subject that came. Into my head. That time was about was Bobby Sands this hunger strike and the foam that it was asking falls through. So no pros thinking about it was narrative stories I thought. Okay. Well, this has been out to feature film and the financing though that made it possible that came from UK Chow four, but was it on the basis of those earlier works that we've just talked about or what? I was very fortunate to have relationship with Marian Goodman Goodman gallery, through those soul to institutions museum of not for example debate, and you know, and other collections and whatnot. So that's that's how I clued in an eighteen so through that sort of having that sort of reputation, of course, people sort of interested in in what I want to do and I met John Young husband. But interestingly John was not it wasn't from film fall. It was from the division of tunnel full. Okay. And she gave me nine hundred thousand pounds to make Hunga my first feature film, and there was money from Northern Ireland film and with Welsh association, and it sounds like Bobby Sands had kind of captured your imagination since you were very young. What was it about him that you think that that I thought to myself this is the first and it could be loss for whatever. Again, you go into Khasi stop. What have what will be will be? I thought okay. This is the Phil wanted to make. So if I don't gonna talk. In the film. This is it, and it was about I think that attitude of his until ways of musing his his life as a kind of a weapon, notice may change, whatever you think about that. You know, the pros and cons of about. How did the he didn't white wh- full? But for me, I was interested in in that pod burnishing history. Yeah.

We will doubtless have more on that story as it unfolds over coming days as well, but we will move on finally tonight. And despite the mountainous evidence by now assembled that asking the general public for their opinions is always a terrible idea. The city buggers of Brussels have done it anyway, conducting a competition to rename Twenty-eight streets and squares we can at the very least be grateful that as things stand, no, Bruce Alois will be obliged to get new station, reprinted giving their addresses street MC street face instead as if in collective defiance of the well loved pub game, they have chosen the names of actual famous Belgians. Jacob g. t. like the new names? Yeah, they're whimsical. I think they're kind of fun. I mean, I, I think government buildings generally should have quite portentous names. I think worships should generally have quite serious. I think roads you can have a bit of fun with and from personal. I used to live in Arlington, Virginia, and Arlington is culturally Washington DC. In fact, it was part of Washington DC until about eighteen forty, but it's in Virginia. And so this was two thousand seven, two thousand eight. I lived at the intersection of not one, but two straights named the Jefferson Davis highway Jefferson Davis, of course, the president of the confederacy. Those streets have only been renamed in the last couple of years. So you can get very, very badly wrong naming streets after long dead politics. This is great this, this does happen. A lot of as you will know, Robin in places where there has been a political to molten upheaval street signs get taken down and replaced with new ones. We all know longer at war with Eurasia and so forth there, but they can also be celebrating there is of course a Bill Clinton boulevard in Pristina in Kosovo. Another street, I think on right insane named after Tony Blair. My favorite historical fact possibly of old time pertains to the renaming of a street, which is the street on which the British embassy in Tehran sits Robin knows this story. It was on Winston Churchill street in Tehran in one thousand nine hundred one. It's a great pub. Quiz question. If you phrase it like this, these limit government of your on renamed it after which other member of the house of Commons. It was cool CRA hunger-strike Bobby says, and these still Bobby Sands street though. I think the British embassy moved the entrance for so they didn't have to put that on this stationary. Robaina you are you in favor of the sort of municipal? Well, I'm very much in favor of whimsical street names, but did you London his way ahead of the rest of the world on this London has the best whimsical street names as far as I know of any city in the world, and many of them are ancient. I mean, for example, would you not love to live in shoulder of mutton ally? It exists, it's in east London. You might be less keen to live in Trump street, which also exists here in one of my favorite one. Not very far from where I live in north London is a street, could crooked usage. I'd love to live with love to live on the usage..

"On Tuesday a federal judge. Ordered the release of Bobby Sands Yokel own from immigration detention He was an undocumented immigrant from Ecuador an, ice detained him last month after making a food delivery to a military base in Brooklyn New York here to, bring us up, to speed. On BBC releases one. Manuel Benitez host of politica. On spectrum Noticias New York one one thanks for joining us thank you for having me so very interesting story here remind us abou- since your color on, how. He was detained, by is this was when he was making food delivery in Brooklyn correct in June I he went to make. A delivery that army base and like in many other, occasions before he presented his idea and why. See that municipal idea here in New York the many immigrants and million documented immigrants, have so they have a photo ID whenever they go to unofficial building in dot occasion the official at the army base dating like that ID and just, ran a background check on we ever since you're and he discovered on outstanding Deportation order from twenty ten it's because, he came in to the country in two thousand and eight and then in two thousand ten he based when his asylum application. Was in. I he voluntarily said. I'm going to leave the. Country he never left he never went back to Ecuador and in two thousand thirteen he married Sandra Chica now who is a naturalized citizen now he has. Two. Small daughters they, are also citizens of the United States so the judge yesterday was it was really remarkable to be in the. Courthouse yesterday the federal courthouse judge Pokrovsky who is a, George W Bush appointee he was extremely forceful. With the government's lawyer and he said things such as the powerful are doing what, they want the poor are suffering were they must remember the since you did you have a criminal record before he he just had that outstanding Petition order from twenty ten and should he have been protected because, New York is a sanctuary city does that should that play any role in this at all when it comes to an army base that's a federal government jurisdiction so, it's really hard to make dot case however the judge kept saying this. Person doesn't have a criminal record, he has been paying taxes is a family man, he has a, family were all citizens of the. United States in. This case so why is the government detaining him and what was their responding what. Was the government's case it was? At this outstanding deportation order that. He had violated what exactly were they trying. To prove what's happening lately and you know see now is that is is coming, into a community is immigrant communities all over the country and if. You have a deputy in order that you'd, never complied with and then they're going to do and they're going they're. Going to try to put you in the neck on the next flight back to your country to the. Country where you were born They've done that repeatedly and? That's what? They tried to do also with VW since they couldn't do it because a few days, after he was arrested on. June first a few days later there was. A, stay on his reputation, like a federal judge another one in. The same southern district I said wait a minute. We have to hear the case and what he has to say and we'll. Crotty judge Crotty yesterday was trying to say is that he started? The adjustment to regularise his? Status back in February of this year why don't you let. Him go through the process and once process is done? Even if the, government says we're not going, to give you a green, card then just deport him but given. Due process and the bread the judge actually did say Crotty said quote is there any concept of Justice here what I, thought was a pretty powerful thing to say in addition to what you were mentioning earlier you was an yes I was in the overflow Room in the? Courthouse it was packed with friends supporters lawyers and every time the judge said something like this everybody, was cheering Jim for, the family it's a really A lot of people can say this is the rule. Of? Law we have to follow rules we have to follow the law but this country always show some sort of some some sort of. Compassion for stories like us. Right and people are seeing how the government just goes unchecked right, now on how the messages? From the White House are immigrants are bad they, are all gang members and even when he goes to Europe and the president saying immigrants are this, drawing the culture and? I think, what's interesting about this? Case too is that maybe this is why, it was tugging at a lot of people's heartstrings in New York. Is that he. Does you mentioned. How did, I d, he had. A New York, City. Identification cards, specifically issued for, people who don't have more formal types of identification he was working he. Was working he was he was he's married he's a family man I mean all these things and in fact he was he. Was essentially outed when he, was working, so I think that was one of the things. That that maybe made a lot of. New Yorkers really About this case and many people, are wondering is the idea noisy now liability for many immigrants because it happened also to Margarito. On. Concept soon Silva grandparents from Mexico they've been in this country for twenty years and on July fourth they went to visit their signing. Law and they went to. The Ford Trump army bays around the buffalo area these show their, their audience and they were? Detained as well and they were really close to, deportation and they were released a couple of days ago again by another judge saying let's get them, through the process I? And this, is an idea once? Again for our listeners who are outside of, New York that New York City and stay created so that people. Could have ID. Right so the. New York, City like, many other. Cities in the, in. The country, since the early, two thousands some cities in the country because it's not resolution with immigration. Reforming Washington they've been trying to give some sort of photo ID to this undocumented immigrants that are part Of. The communities all over the country but there who they are waiting for their chance to to regularise their immigration status where do you see this going, what kind of message. If any does this send about people like. Us I think for, him hopefully we'll have a chance to have due process and to go through the process and maybe get green. Card that he wants by the message here is that how. Many immigrants how many undocumented immigrants likely you're right now are slipping through the cracks of this administration and their zero, tolerance policy because his case did. Get a lot of media attention and he was detained for a little over a month right, waiting for this to happen correct and we know that there are so. Many? Cases like his all over the country many of them don't get the same media attention by this, happening, and many immigrant communities all over the country are scared and fear that. They might be next be this.
