"Podcast to seventy three. We were with anthony. Herbert tony herbert. Also known ass and we started off his journey from a kid growing up in pennsylvania surf. You haven't listened to podcasts. To seventy three goal of that right now. He tried to join the marines at fourteen. Fourteen years old credit eventually joined the army at seventeen off. The korean war went from private to master sergeant. All kinds of heroic actions suffered all kinds of wounds shot hit with frag white phosphorus burns and also bayoneted multiple times including one bayonet stabbed that broke off in his chest. He in the korean war served as a platoon leader even though he was just a young enlisted guy and eventually at the end of that podcast and at the end of that part of his life. Us pulled off the battlefield. One of the most decorated soldiers of the war sent on a morale at it was basically morale tour and i were flown back to the to the white house. President truman and then basically went to london and antwerp in brussels and the hague and all the other european allies that were fighting alongside america in the korean war along the way he met. Mrs eleanor roosevelt. She encouraged him to go to college. He kind of agreed of the quotes. He says in the book is he. He agreed because he was already master sergeant in the army and he said what am i going to do. Sit around the enlisted man's club telling stories about korea so he was sort of not not over it but he realized that he'd kinda done what he was going to do. So he ends up getting assigned as an rotc instructor at a high school in denver because he liked to ski goes to the third ranger class. That ever happened. He was in. He ends up getting married to his hometown. Sweetheart mary grace starts going to college or he then he gets out of the army then starts going to college at the university of pittsburgh while he's there he writes a book called conquest. No war nowhere. Which was his first book about the korean war which he later rewrote which we covered. What when it was rewritten was called the making of a soldier. That was podcast to seventy three for the most part worked at a steel mill at night while he was going to college and then eventually commissioned as an officer in the pennsylvania national guard. Shout out to the To two eight iron soldiers all right so so then he goes to the. He's back kind of in the army and he gets them warnings at the army's different now you know the war is over. The good people got out. We just left with people. That shouldn't even be in the army that got those kind of warnings but he stayed in. He loves being a soldier he wants to be. A soldier. goes the basic army. Infantry course wins nine out of ten awards there including the leadership trophy which is the leadership. Trophy is awarded by the other students. Like the other students select. Who deserves this leadership trophy. Then he gets assigned as a ranger instructor and he starts. He starts in the mountain phase. And so today we're going to be reading so the first book that we covered we covered a little bit so he's written two books he's written. Three one was conquest to know where that one got rewritten. As the making of a soldier that was the bulk of what we read last time. This time we're gonna read from his second book primarily and it's just called soldier called soldier and lots of lessons learned but as i mentioned in the first podcast in two seventy three. There's some serious lessons learned about life and things get really crazy when he goes to vietnam as a battalion commander and we will get there all right so here we go go go to the book soldier written by anthony be herbert and he says this teaching young men the essentials of mountain climbing combat and survival was more of a learning experience for me than for them. I began discovering things about the resources in me as well as the way the army was moving. I was an
EU plans to place tougher controls on vaccine exports
"The European Commission is expected to give details today of proposed tougher controls on covert vaccine exports. Made an on going round with AstraZeneca. Brussels has accused the company of breaching its contract with the EU as Nick Beak reports. Commission sources insist their proposals would not amount to an export ban, but it means of better ensuring Europe gets a stable supply of shots. I understand that under the plans, every shipment set to leave the EU would be considered on key criteria, the vaccination rate of the destination country and how many jobs or components it itself is exporting. Officials would also look at how well the manufacturer is fulfilling its contract to the you and check. It's not only hitting targets by sending millions of doses right before

Biden urges UK and EU to preserve Northern Irish peace amid Brexit row
"Good. Friday agreement of nineteen ninety-eight ended thirty years of conflicts between mostly catholic nationalists fighting for a united ireland and mostly protestant loyalists who want northern ireland to stay part of the united kingdom. But now the accord is in jeopardy. According to david campbell chairman of the loyalist community's council. He's calling for dialogue with the eu and island to change the northern irish protocol. That he believes has breached fundamental principles of the original deal. This follows an announcement from loyalist paramilitary groups that they were temporarily withdrawing support for the peace agreement due to concerns over the brexit deal but it has further repercussions beyond europe to has been mcevoy news a political reporter and monocle twenty four regular and has been covering. The story is here to tell us. Good morning to you. Vinian thanks for joining us at. This is clearly a big problem. Here in britain and for the eu. Why is it resonating across the atlantic. Good morning yet has huge resignation across the atlantic you have a massive irish diaspora in america. One in ten americans consider themselves to be from irish descent. You go to the half american presidents having lineage and the man in the white house now is probably the most closely itunes irish issues. That has been since john f. kennedy and so we've now got the brexit arrangement in place in old nada and there was a reason why the northern irish people voted most strongly than any nation in the united kingdom to remain in the eu. Because it is a self-described post conflict society. Those wounds were still hearing and brexit has opened them up and caused issues and as well as the united kingdom and the eu the us will say played a big role in achieving peace in northern ireland. And it is worried that the westminster government has been to a reckless in its handling of northern ireland and things could start to come upon say loyalists particularly angry. We have to remember over the course of brexit with theresa may. She didn't have a majority off to the two thousand seventeen election. so she's struck this alliance with dp which is the main loyalist party. She gave them all kinds of funding for that backing To get her brexit deal through it contains something cold the irish back stock which they became unhappy with that it would have prevented having border arrangements of they were the ones who encouraged conservative backbenchers to keep looking at so now the situation is that. Despite bar johnson's promises he is betrayed. Loyalist parties in northern ireland in that he has allowed the creation of an irish seaboard between nineteen noland and the rest of the united kingdom. And so it is that that has enraged loyalists because they think that it is a barrier between them and the rest of the u. k. That isolates them and that it leads to more synchronization with the republican violence because north non has stayed in single markets and not go on with the rest of the united kingdom. So of course. We know that the have been major power players struggling currently with the brexit rules and their supporters. What does this mean for northern. Ireland's devolved government. Yeah we have to remember. The nolansville government was actually suspended for three years until january loss. If it had been an independent country it would have been the longest in europe to not have to working governments But what it means now is that we've had them up running for a year and all kinds of problems are coming up. So you know the prime minister. Boris johnson traveled. Auden's elliott this This month he actually didn't meet with chimp Sane the other main partners in that power sharing agreement that has said waves. That says you know. The the westminster copy relied on his effect on governors of. What's going on there. It's only dealing with one of the parties but the loyalists themselves having problems in their ranks. Because of this seaboard you had a administer effectively northern ireland a playing a sort of unilaterally moves late on friday nights a few weeks ago where he sort of blocks the construction of the border checks at poets and the hiring of staff unilaterally and that really set things off because they're just trying to frustrate the creation of this border which brussels assigned up to the uk has signed up to in law and for the first time last week the biden white house made clear that it supports the northern ireland tricycle. And that everyone else. Apart from the loyalist consider this now a settled issue to move on
EU regulator says AstraZeneca vaccine 'safe and effective'
"The european medicines agency has concluded that the astra zeneca covid nineteen vaccine is safe and effective. A review of the job came after thirteen states suspended. Its use over. Fears of linked to blood clots. But the now says the vaccine is not linked with a higher risk of clots. Well for more. I'm joined from brussels by darren. Mccaffrey the political editor euronews. A darn good morning to you and thanks for joining us with the doubts then about the vaccine. Will this kind all started last week or georgina. A in italy and austria where the reports of suspected blood clots for people who received that vaccine in fact amand had died in those extended to norway last weekend's and more importantly specifically to germany on monday and that led to a whole swathe of countries at particular the big four in the european union. It's the spain and france and germany deciding to suspend the use of the astrazeneca vaccine on what they call the precautionary principle so just in case essentially and that meant that the em aid and investigated these claims and yesterday. She said e kook. The director insisted that the vaccine was safe and effective. They said they couldn't find any link at all between an increase in blood clots and the vaccine however they did also that they couldn't rule arts at that there may be one specific type. Ucla cloth that has seen an increase and they couldn't rule out that that might be linked to it book again. Mccook pointed all medicine. All medicine has got side effects. You pick up a box of paracetamol at. You'll see that. In the most extreme circumstances it is possible. You might a reaction to its the point. Is that risk does not outweigh the benefits of this vaccine is the ema insisted yesterday. There are houses of people dying every day today tomorrow the next day across europe from corona virus and that this vaccine will help save lives or stop people getting ill. It will stop the main open hospital. It will stop them dying. And that's why they have consistently said that countries should have carried on using the astrazeneca vaccine an interest in the of course while not all countries stopped it for example they didn't hear belgian said. It would be irresponsible to do so. It is interesting the eu countries. Listen to the european medicines agency yesterday but ignored advice all week. The advice consistently has been not to stop the use of the astrazeneca vaccine. And i mean it just seems such a giant waste of time in terms of a race that everybody is trying to keep up with to suspend this for four really what has appeared to be no reason i mean as any woman knows taking the contraceptive pill as a much higher. Incidence of blood clots. Indeed i think from their point of view and this is where it gets complicated here in european union. Of course you've got european agency which is kind of the overarching body that authorizes drugs and authorized vaccines but you then also have national regulators. Who essentially gets to decide how those rules applied or or whether a member state should've finds by those rules when it comes to germany and where we saw a whole swathes countries at backing germany. The was the principal. There's also concerns about potential legal action because ultimately this is a state authorized vaccine service ad. That's been offered obviously to every german. And i think there was concern. That even could be farmed and they had data evidence to say that the wasn't increase increasing site. When it came to one specific type of blood clots the wilkinson's that may well open the german state of legal action and they wanted it to be investigated but yet. In retrospect all men many of these member states looking back. I answer that decision and decided it was the right one to do. Given the unfair. I would suggest damage reputation of astra zeneca for a whole load of ruse reasons across the eu and the damage that might do to the overall vaccine program. I'm not entirely sure was the right thing to
EU proposes vaccine certificates for travel — but citizens might not need a shot
"Find out the facts and we'll take it. From there. The European Union will unveil details of a vaccine passport, which could help ease travel across the block and reopen Europe to international tourism. This summer. The digital green certificate as Brussels is calling it Will cover three categories vaccinations, recovery and testing at the moment. It's unclear whether non EU approved jabs like Russia's Sputnik V and China Sino Farm will be accepted or exactly what privileges certificate holders will receive. Passports, though, are a top priority for tourism dependent countries like Greece, Malta and Cyprus. But others, including France and Belgium, have raised concerns about discrimination against those who do not yet have access to the
A Culinary Tour Of Brexit
"Joined today by frank langfitt. Npr's lennon correspondent. Frank hi. hey it's great to be here. Cardiff great to have you so frank from what i understand. You are about to take us on a kind of culinary tour of brexit. Today's yes that's right so quick. Refresher on brexit cardiff. Uk voted to leave the you to escape red tape in brussels. So they'd be free to cut new free trade deals. This was like a number of years ago. Two thousand sixteen. The uk finally completely got out of the eu on new year's eve which means different things to different sectors here but today we're just going to focus on one of the hardest hit that's food as specifically we're look at wasters cheese and wine because we found his each item tells a different story about the real world consequences of brexit so far. So that's our plan. And here's the menu wine cheese or oysters cardiff if you want to start with. I don't know frank. I think i'm in the mood for oysters. Let's start there good choice. We're surrounded by water here in britain so the story of oysters is that when you suddenly face new regulations doing business is so much harder and no one is feeling this more than this. Fisherman that i met is his name. Is jonathan bailey very way this is late this is this is just rain rain water. I'll get some jonathan harvest oysters on a river in the southwest of england on the day that i met him. It was raining so we were bailing out his robot. Yeah i'm assuming Frank jonathan exports his own to europe. And that's why you're talking to him so a one eight tells how that's going for him now. That brexit is reality. Things are going really badly. So before brexit when the uk was in the eu there was seamless trade like between the states in the us and jonathan dredged up his oysters. They were shipped to europe and then they were cleaned which worked out just fine now. After brexit. Those british oysters are subject to eu rules about imports. Just like any other country outside the eu. so jonathan's wasters now have to be cleaned here on this side of the english channel. And i know this doesn't really sound like a big deal but if you're in the business it is and that's because it adds costs and it means there's less time to get those oysters on a european plates before they die. A bottom line are going to die in transit so this and other changes because of brexit have really hurt the fishing industry in fact shellfish and fish exports to the eu just in january. We're down more than eighty percent year-on-year now. The government likes to call this just teething problems in trade volumes overall are already rebounding. And that is. I gotta say a staggering dropped eighty percent plus. It is dead always tres and frank. I'm no expert on this. But i mean dead. Oysters are not good tasty oysters. No and you can't any money off them. Obviously so jonathan is one of like more than forty fishermen and women around here who are pretty much out of work. This season and i asked him when we're out on his boat like how he thinks it's going to impact them in the long run. Do you think that you'll keep fishing. Or i'm sixty six. I'm wondering whether this is the moment to say the. How would you feel about not fishing anymore. I would be very very very very upset. Okay so frank. Things clearly not looking good for the fishermen on the english coast. What's next on the menu where we're headed next in in our brexit tour so next off the whales for wine and then the northwest of england for cheese wine and cheese nice pairing classic traditional. Let's do that right after a quick break. This message comes from. Npr sponsor interactive brokers the professionals gateway to the world's markets. Their clients enjoy lowest cost access to stocks options futures and fixed income from a single integrated account. Learn more at i b. k. r. dot com. This message comes from npr sponsor. Microsoft teams helping priority. Bicycles transform. the way they work when the pandemic hit they started doing virtual visits on teams. Now people worldwide can come into their showroom more at microsoft dot com slash teams. Okay frank we're done with the delicious oyster chorus. So let's continue on with this brexit culinary tour and frank. I could really use a bevy. So what were you saying about. Wine is a really good example of a frankly how brexit can cost you in the checkout line. So let's head to wales and we're gonna meet daniel lambert who imports wine. So this is all little warehouse so daniel reports tens of thousands of cases of wine each year most of it of course from europe and for daniel. This used to be really easy. We used to just have to one very very simple simplistic but now because the uk's outside of the u. it's brexit. There's so much more. I have to send the order to the producer. The producer then produces pro forma invoice which they sent back to me on the pro forma invoice. They have two quite mild a number so hunting trip daniel down a bit because he actually went on. For more than a minute but describing. The avalanche of confusing forms now has to fill out. He said each separate set of forms cost seventy five bucks so scale of one to ten. How much are you enjoying this new system. Yeah it makes sense. I mean everybody hates paperwork. Super annoying. But frank did you ask him you know what about the real impact on his business. What he said is paperwork. Costs will be passed on to consumers but some small retailers won't be able to afford the extra paperwork cost ordering different kinds of wine so in the end that's actually going to mean less variety on the shelves.
Countries across Europe suspend use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine over blood clot fears
"More countries around the world are suspending AstraZeneca's vaccine based on fears that they cause blood clots. In Brussels, Teri Schultz reports that the European Medicines Agency says it's ongoing investigation has not found any such connection. After a preliminary review of claims AstraZeneca vaccinations have caused blood clots in some recipients. Head of the European Medicines agency Immer Cook says that's not born out by the evidence at this point, but presence there is no indication that vaccination has caused these conditions. They have not come up in mechanical trials, and they're not listed as known or expected side events with this vaccine, Cook says. Final results of what she describes as a rigorous analysis of the data will be available on Thursday and then the agency will see if it needs to act. But in the meantime, she says, the health risks of not having a Corona virus vaccine are more dangerous than the possibility of developing blood clots. For NPR News. I'm Teri Schultz in Brussels.
More countries pause the use of AstraZeneca’s vaccine, despite its support among global health authorities.
"I going to be looking at the upshot of this week's vaccine news and it's been rather bumpy one for the reputation of the astra zeneca jab italy norway denmark bulgaria thailand among other countries have suspended use of the british developed vaccine over suggestion that it's been linked to blood clots in recipients the world health organization on must add and on the other hand. There's no evidence to support this suspicion. Let's take a listen now to matina. Stevis gridneff apologies for put your name matina a contributor to monaco speaking on globalist this morning she reports on the eu from brussels and for the new york times well the eu was a few weeks behind the us and the uk in striking agreements with pharmaceuticals. That wasn't catastrophic in any way. But what's really devil. The rollout has been major supply shocks vaccines due to problems with production by the pharmaceutical companies in particular in the first quarter of this year. That's really set. Things back and europeans have watched. Americans israelis british people just race past them In terms of getting vaccinated just as an indication six and a half percent of european union nationals have received at least one dose of the battle of a vaccine contrast that about a third of brits at eighteen percent of americans matina stevis gridneff speaking here on monocle twenty four a little earlier today andrew. We're gonna start with you the astrazeneca vaccine we've spoken about it. A lot and rightly or wrongly. It's a bit of a pr nightmare from inception to now. Probably not the fault of the people that created it but is there anything that can be done to revive its reputation as something that people are clamor for rather than Against well it's interesting because just as you say in the last few days we've had this story about a tiny group they seem to have had a blood clot in hours or day oft often receiving the vaccine but as pointed out by kind of everybody's looked at these numbers and that's not surprising when you think about all the things that are likely to happen to a large group of people. The next day is wouldn't be surprising if somebody who had a heart attack. Run over by truck. Somebody was bitten by a dog. It doesn't mean anything to do with the vaccine. And i think most people are saying look just ignore that. Carry on and certainly here in In in the uk. We've been told just ignore. This is not an issue. Even the european medicines Authorities said actually is is better to press ahead giving people vaccine but in the meantime you got places like denmark and poland. Thailand saying we're gonna pause on. We're not gonna do this so the minute they do that. It puts in people's mind okay. This doesn't look good already. People have been cautious about astrazeneca. And as i said you know. I've had that vaccine and is no reaction whatsoever to it was it was. It was perfect for me. Now i would. I would say that they what we need is politicians to keep quiet and allow the medical people. Get so there's that issue then today and more you've voices saying that they should add extreme Reactions to the virus being registered on the side effects. Again that's going to cause problems when it comes down to the europeans need more of these things and not fewer and more people to to use them in an uptake. Because one final thing. I think the interesting thing here in the uk is we know there are certainly difficult is still within Black and asian communities for example. But here in the u. k. You get a tipping point. Where so many people have now. Had the the the reluctance to have the vaccine and two have astra zeneca dissipates. Goes away once you get these numbers. So i think everybody is speaking our says to have even people when i was speaking in go. I don't think i'll have everything i need. Not people like. yeah see. when can i have my vaccine. I won't have
What's the problem with the EU vaccine rollout?
"Eu has exported almost thirty five million doses of the coronavirus vaccine to nations such as canada mexico japan and saudi arabia. It's led to questions being raised about. Why so many doses of being exported while there remains an acute shortage of people in the block and claims of emerge that not. Everybody is being generous. The suggestion that outside the e u the uk and now perhaps even the us could be unnecessarily with stocks of the vaccine well to discuss this latest development in vaccine diplomacy. I'm joined by matina. Stevis gridneff brussels correspondent for the new york times covering the european union. Good morning tina morning. So just tell us. What is this argument or boiling down to in terms of the exporting of e you vaccines when countries such as france italy germany as saying where it our share it's really become a politically toxic situation in the european union which has had a an underwhelming to be polite rollout of the vaccine the eu was a few weeks behind the us and the uk in striking agreements with pharmaceuticals that wasn't catastrophic. But what's really bedevil. The rollout has been made supply shocks of vaccines Due to problems with production by the pharmaceutical companies in particular in the first quarter of this year that's really set things back and europeans have watched. Americans israelis british people just race past them In terms of getting vaccinated just as an indication six and a half percent of european union nationals have received at least one dose of the bow of a vaccine contrast that about a third of brits at eighteen percent of americans so it really stinks at the same time. They has come under criticism for vaccine nationalism for curbing experts in particular when Last week at stopped small shipment of astrazeneca vaccine to what are stories revealed is that in fact the eu has consistently been at the top of the a game of vaccines in the word. It'll as you said. Nearly thirty five million doses. Since february first so that's raising questions in the eu why we not forcing the pharmaceuticals to keep those doses here since they're not making hole on their promises for what they should be distributing to the e year where. It's a decision being made here. Is it astra zeneca or saying. We don't have enough supply that's been reported or is it a decision by the european union itself to make sure that it is seen right around the world as being generous. I don't think this is about generosity. I think the eu we all have to remember is primarily a free trade block and once aspires to be a global powerhouse of of exports It would be catastrophic. They think to their reputation to stop. In any large numbers such exports at the same time it would also be self-defeating in the long run because the global supply chain for the components to make vaccines is incredibly diffuse the easier based manufacturers just depend on certain many countries around the world to source the materials that go into making the vaccines so really initiating global trade war over the vaccines is not smart for anyone the unified one else but tell that to the europeans who are dying to get back to life to get back to work and can't initially. I mean we have reports today in germany saying that they have a big problem that they're going to surge speaking to friends in italy there. Yes yesterday in milano. Saying we're just about to go back into lockdown. If we're not careful so this is a genuine problem is possibly creating a more longer term. Trust issue when it comes to european people looking at what the e u is supposed to have done for them to protect them in a way that many a single the uk is doing without any problems outside the european union. Well the issue here is an again. It's just this whole topic is incredibly complex. The issue here is first of all this. The problems of the eu faces with a slow rollout are not just down to supply while germany complains very rightly. so it's in fact performing worse than many poorer. Eu countries in his rollout out is not is also the fact that they're doing a bad job logistically getting those vaccines out to their people on the ground. There's nothing really to do with the your. And were the with regards to what the u k and indeed as we're finding out today from reporting from my colleagues in america the united states are doing is well not stopping exports of the vaccines. They are effectively telling the companies. Well you need to keep those vaccines in our countries because we have bought them up. Which means that in terms of making sure that those vaccines are also getting to other countries. They're potentially can be criticized that they're not doing their fair. Share in particular in the case of the united states which is a massive manufacturer vaccines and exports virtually zero. As far as we know so

Attention to how workers in alabama might vote As it could change a lot given the size of amazon the corporation now amazon is so big that we're kind of also informally launching a series. Hear about all the ways in which amazon is changing all of our lives so focusing on labor here today. if there's an area of life that you think amazon is changing and you'd like us focus on You know hop on to social media. Twitter facebook at on point radio and let us know what you'd like to us to look into or you can also give us a call at six one seven three five three zero six eight three looking for your ideas on areas of life that you want to learn more about that amazon. Might be changing. I'm joined today by steven. Greenhouse he's labor and workplace journalist author of beaten down worked up the past present and future of american labor karen weiss is also with. She's a new york. Times correspondent covering amazon microsoft and the pacific northwest's tech scene. She's with us from seattle. Now karen we heard from michael foster the union organizer there before the break. I wanted to ask you more about the the one of the fundamental things. He talked about which was worker. Dignity pay is one thing but worker dignities another and i think amazon's got a pretty long list of Of incidents if i can call it that where does lead one to questions of how they view or how much they the importance they have of warehouse. Worker dignity right there was they. Fires warehouse workers who spoke out about insufficient safety protocols regarding regarding covert in two thousand and twenty We've heard we've read stories. Maybe you've even written them caring about like response to being used to monitor warehouse workers and all of that. How does amazon see see people.

And so when you heard. Michael talk a lot of things. We're talking about rebellious kind of technological. Productivity measurements and tools and operational tool amazon has to manage. Its workforce you know Student brought up a good point earlier about unions aren't necessarily a third voice that's that they've representative workers and i think i was free support the amazon. That's a third voice but same time You know it has ways that it listens to workers now but it's not the same as having the workers voice representatives through a union and so for example. They have boards in voice amazonian brussels onboard. People can complaints or compliments not different things but the way they use that at a global level is they use artificial intelligence and natural language processing to figure out matic patterns in it so they they had to and also broke out of bear amazonian techie. Way have developed these kind of technological relationships with workers which is which is different than how even the walmart's an immense growth. What was fifteen or so years ago when it went through. it's huge. that's a different relationship numb when you the feedback workers get is often from rate ticker essentially on their on screen which is different than being a cashier in a store and bringing people up karen that is so fascinating. The algorithms are absolutely everywhere. Oh my gosh. So here's here's basis in two thousand eighteen in an interview with business insider talking about why he says he's proud. Not only of the wages of amazon pays cause remember two thousand eighteen. There is a minimum of fifteen dollars an hour but also how he says. The company treats its employees in our view. We have we have workers councils and we have very good communications with our employees. We don't believe that we need a union to be an intermediary between us and our employees but of course at the end of the day. It's always employs choice. And that's how it should be steven. What do you think. I'd be surprised to hear that amazon. Actually has workers councils. That's you know. And if they are workers councils than i imagine they might be handpicked by management and with the union the workers pick representatives and under federal law executives are required to sit down and listen to the workers concerns. Yes amazon says that it listens to workers but it's really unclear the degree to which they really listened. I remember years ago. I wrote walmart. Walmart would say for worker has a complaint. We have an open door policy. Come in and complaint show us. And i interviewed many workers who use the open door to file complaints and then they got fired soon after and they said the open door policy is actually the out the door policy. I'm not saying that's the case amazon. But i think you know. Some companies are so much cynical when they say they really listen. I'm sure karen has spoken to amazon. Workers who have heard who have voiced the same complaint. I hear say they feel like they often feel like robots. I interviewed a worker at the best. My warehouse daryl richardson. Who said he's a pickering to three hundred fifteen items our that's five items omitted and he says you feel like a robot and if you fall behind you risk getting fired several workers who said and if we have to go to the bathroom run a few hundred yards and take a few minutes to do that We might fall behind and that and if know and if you've got to go to the bathroom a whole lot in a certain day might end up risk getting fired so they feel that they're not listened to enough and many feel that there's a lack of dignity in the pressure that's put on them every

"That they would require which means that they won't back which will give fresh impetus to the people who then think they can peel off remain ish conservative members of parliament to support some version of the Cooper amendment because no deal looms larger and larger as a possible threat. I don't see that. We've yet got three into two if we have got three into two I think Theresa May wins. If we're still three I think she really big problem. What's the third mean is it? Extending Article V day four referendum is extending article fifty four a general election is in order for the EU to agree to extension vertical. Fifty other than for tidying up some legislation is caught to for some clear purposes going to from the us point of view, yield something on general election. I just don't see what yields from the us point of view of the just even you end up with a minority. Labour government is still leave you with the issue of how do you go share it with a new government that on its own admission doesn't want the Boxton, sir. General election could do anything. But I think the political logic points through general election of genuinely parliament kennel get three down into two since me almost all you can do then is have a new parliament agree. It's hard. See why the EU would be thrilled at the thought of delaying a few months in order to face a very uncertain future. Of course, it could result in a majority conserved that at that point, the you can just say no to that. And then that becomes no deal that refocuses. People's Mearns of passing jewel, we go round on this. I find it hard to believe in the same way that went to resume as the fixed component night. But when to resume comes along in two thousand seventeen and says, I want an election. No one's going to desktop a kennel see the EU refusing an extension if the British government says it's to allow us to have a general election that would actually seems to me look terrible from kind of democratic legitimacy point of view. So I think she could call bluff on this. Of course. It would be a strange bluff Kalinka, she could also doing that gas of Turkey ever been really greatly concerned about democratic legitimacy in this home. Concerned about the look democratic legitimacy. Okay. We're not going to get around in circles on this talking politics is brought to you in partnership with the London review of books this week the week. That's just gone looked like a week. Unusually for recent months where the conservative party was coming together and the labor party around. This issue is looking more fractured is that the real picture is it really the case when it comes to the crunch the Tory party's traditional virtue of will hang together. We'll hang separately will hold the food. I think that that that was very mixed. I think that ten, you know, the relative conservative unity lesson go overboard on how far it went. Because you still did have I think around twenty conservative peas who voted for the Cooper amendment did come from some concerted effort within the conservative party to try to narrow the scope of the disagreement. So if you just take the e oh OG the gone from having thousand one problems from the withdrawal agreement to having problems at all about the back. Stop much really about one part of the back stock which is the outskirts of any kind of exit mechanism any form whatsoever from the backseat. So that's a a reduction of the differences between those conservative party won't the present withdraw agreement passan those who have been bitterly opposed on it and trying to unite round. Let's try and deal with this exit is whether that confined Brussels is a whole other matter. But at least within the conservative party, they've got some more common ground than they were. Was leaving the twenty very to around twenty. I think voted for the Cooper amendment aside. I think what you saw we saw this way in the labor party was many more different physicians coming out. And I think that you've got the people who basically supported the government you got gobin in the front bench who supported formerly enthusiastically the Cooper amendment with three line whip..

"There are a whole series of choices that people face there. But come back in two weeks time, you didn't get the movement from the Europeans Tory unity starts to fracture. Isn't there a chance that the an equivalent of the Cooper amendment and extension to article fifty does get through? I'm not saying that there's no chance, but I think that what happened. This. We does reveal that there is a real difficulty in mobilizing sufficient labor votes to try to bring about an extension of auto fifty something that would have to be a second for end of one four and other searches the other amendment the pass was the symbolic rejection of no deal. But you think that the symbolism is easy actually doing it for too many labor members hard? He didn't think that in two weeks time the symbolic vote becomes an actual. I think the the way the I in tip it what happened this week is that parliament clearly there was a majority in parliament, probably a large majority. Then there was on the spokesman amendment. Absolutely do not want in any circumstances. So ever no deal. I think what this week made clear is that the majority in parliament do not either really want to delay Brexit, unless it was for a very specified purpose of getting legis. Flation done on. I suspect that one of the reasons why that might be the case if you look at the polling think it was sky. The did is that something like sixty percent of the electric regard any argument about extending article fifty as really an argument for stopping Broza, and you can see why they might think that. So if we leave aside the tactical problem, and it's a massive Todd go problem about the February fourteenth day in relation to the the European Union. We have seen I think events move that pushed the choice between a version of this withdrawal agreement on a version of this polit-political declaration versus no deal, which is what to resume had been trying to move things towards as say impediment from her point of view, or the difficulty from her point of view is is the next time that these votes have got to come up is ready to soon to have got anything a tool, even I think symbolic changes to the two things issue. After that feels to me like I agree that were this to move to that choice. She would have a pretty good chance of finally getting a parliamentary majority for her deal. But that for the reasons you say, they won't be enough movement on the European side. So it hasn't become a two-way choice. There will still be three options on the table. So there will be significant numbers of conservative MP's who will not back her deal because she's not gold. The concessions will movement tool even enough creative and beauty.

"Eleventh hour and the fifty ninth minute like it wouldn't work, and then a compromise was found, but to me this looks different because essentially the key relationship here is between the government and the European Union the Irish position that's being defended. And as we get closer to the wire, the other Member States really going to abandon Arlen isn't the thing that the opinion does is it gets closer to the wire that it thinks his priorities to hold together. Which is why maybe it backs time in the face of some aspects of the Greek crisis. When to hold together as he gets near the why it's not going to cut loose. Well, I think that first of your points guys bat to the Greek crisis south in the ways in which has been interpreted, which I think generally being the wrong ways in which is being interpreted kuzak isn't a moment achieve. E you unity holding except in a very very perverse way. Because what was going on in those negotiations over the third bailout was that the finance ministers of the eurozone states were trying to expel Greece from the eurozone and the midnight hour deal. So to speak was the Greek government. I'm the great prominence to Cps swallowing so much humiliation to stop that attempted expulsion certain that rather them to expel Greece would have actually fractured European unity. I think that Mirka was in an extremely difficult position in it wasn't clear that she was fishing committed to the position that had finance minister schobul had been pushing. So she gave him sufficient green light to go ahead with the attempted expulsion. And then she gave the tiniest little sweet if you like to see press to try to say, oh, we could just accept this and swallow everything else a you can stay in. So I think is not entirely clear. Even in retrospect, how committed Merckel was to pushing Greece out of the us only could read it that she never quite wanted to do that. But I think what it means is the point of view making comparison with with Brexit is that the issue about your opinion. Teachers really hold now, if you then turned to where we are now with Frank's it from the point of view of other EU governments. I'm the Irish question. Clearly, there was something more state for them than just supporting the government. And that is the credibility of the European Union. And the go shooting position that it took in the fact that it's remained as committed for as long as it has to the Irish position. All that would lead one thing that that was gonna stick on that the twenty six gun abandon island over the Buxton on the other hand, if you're sitting in Berlin, and you looking at the latest economic data out of Germany, and you thinking a k on top of these difficulties will get at in a no do Brexit. And then we're going to have to persuade voters. This was all worth it. I think trying to persuade Jim invoices. Indeed, anybody else's voices that oh this is necessary in order to protect island about the border with the United Kingdom is not the easiest showy say political Selo at the very least it must can raise some kind of doubt. How about when the political calculus now is how close to the word we have to get for that to kick in. Is it gonna kick in before February? Now, I think this is the the tot cool massive technical problem. Theresa May's go is it fourteenth Feb. Always way too soon. Because if the EU is going to move even in ways it get dressed up as being symbolic, but perhaps on the have more substance to them. They're not gonna do it by the fourteenth February. So that then moves the questions calculus in the house of Commons because says one group of people who may hold together that the e twenty seven there's another group of people who may not hold together at the conservative party. He said his nap tight in the Commons. Fool not doing Brexit. Is there an appetite though, still to delay? Because the fact that the Cooper amendment went down and the Brady amendment went through happened on a particular day under particular circumstances..

"Renou a few days on from the really interesting series of votes in the house of Commons as various amendments fell one by one until the Brady amendment passed the next day on Wednesday. I traveled to Ireland in a day there and back to Dublin on the way there. This was the morning after the night before I read the not not the British paper that we have to call them the English papers that were celebrating Theresa's triumph and on the way back. I read the Irish newspapers from the same day that were bemoaning Therese's betrayal, and the times one of that Columbus thought made the perfectly reasonable point that the reason we need backstop is precisely because the British government has decided that they can renegotiate the backstop because the whole point of it is to provide security that is people's confidence in the future that the border will not but come a heart border and. Put in those terms. It does make really hard for Theresa May to persuade Brussels, which means at some level persuading the our sh- government. This question can be right reopened because there is a point to the backstop from the point of view. They cannot be comforted that British politics will not really mess them around unless they have that security, but it just it. Partly sounds paradoxical kind of we need the backstop because Brigham saying we don't need the backstop. That is also true that the other side of the paradox is that if the backstory, which is at the moment. The primary impediment tea, but in leaving the European Union withdrawal agreement and the alternative is for leaving with no do then the nature of the rules of the European Union. Ensure the has to be something that might be described as a hard border to the island of island site. The worst case scenario is actually at the moment being hastened along or at least potentially being hastened alone by the backstop that supposed to prevent the worst case scenario Utah's up. Not say is the dilemma here, basically, let's try and see this from the Irish point of view got to pretty terrible options. But no deal gives you hard border. Plus very immediate economic kale's and withdrawal agreement with some modification of the backstop arrangement risks are Buddha. But it does at least for stolley image economic hails. Because I she put in those times nine persuaded the other. Way. There is a good case reading this. I think that this gets to the heart of the political calculation that this Irish government made in picturing divisional, stop which was for Northern Ireland. It wasn't going to include the United Kingdom made. And that was that. Nobody government could contemplate in any shape or form leaving without the deal. So other the backstop went through as part of the withdrawal agreement or a box went through with the withdrawal agreement or Brexit wouldn't happen all some different government negotiated some different dealer a customs union deal, whatever. Well, I think that was really possibility because the customs union is about the future relationship in the future relationship was never going to be negotiated. Join the period, we negotiating the withdrawal thirties, this will no exit on accent might not know do. Yeah. And so I think that the Irish calculation has always been that no deal be so intolerable for Britain that they'll be no possibility. Of that happening. So there is an actually a risk of getting into the scenario. So I think from if you sitting in in Dublin at the moment, you might be more nervous than you had been simply because there is some possibility. Now, I think its is not very high for -bility the prisons and leave without a deal. But at the same time, I think what we conceive in this week's developments the votes on the amendments is that there is no stomach in parliament for trying to stop Brexit all this insufficient stomach component for trying to stop Brexit. So in that sense, the risk of no deal has actually gone on this week. So let's come onto the parliamentary rhythm to get a second. Just one more question about all little said the wider European Union negotiating strategy over the next perilous few days and weeks. There is an people started to say it kind of motif. That's emerging particularly among the books tears. This is how the EU always negoti. She's takes everything to the wire. Don't believe them when they say this can't be reopened look at what happened with the Greeks brought up to the.
