Boris Johnson faces Brexit revolt in parliament.

"I'm Anthony Davis. The European Union on Monday ramped up pressure on UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to step back from breaking the brexit divorce treaty. Delaying a key decision on London's euro clearing justice. He faces a rebellion in the British parliament. The European Union says Johnson's plan would wreck trade talks and propelled the United Kingdom toward a messy brexit while former British leaders have warned that breaking the law is a step too far that will tarnish the country's image. The House of Commons will vote on moving the internal market bill which the EU has demanded London scrap by the end of the month two, its next amendment stage after a debate that Johnson will introduce. As Johnson prepared to try to persuade lawmakers that he's planned to explicitly break international law was worth supporting a derivatives industry source said the European Commission had delayed a decision on euro clearing. Johnson who has a majority of eighty in the lower house of parliament faces a growing revolt. All of Britain's living former prime ministers have expressed concern about his plan as have many senior figures in his Conservative Party. The leader of the opposition Labor party kissed Obama who is self isolating due to the corona virus said, he would oppose a bill that broke international law. Johnson's plan to explicitly break INS National Law has plunged brexit back into crisis less than four months before Britain is finally due to

Boris Johnson returns to work

"Now we begin the show here. In Britain. Boris Johnson has returned to work after recovering from cove nineteen. The British. Prime Minister's illness was severe enough to send him to intensive care for several days. A personal experience that he likes to being physically assaulted by an unexpected. An invisible mugger. Joining me now is Carol. Walker is a political analyst and former BBC political correspondent Carol. What else was Johnson keen to emphasize in his first speech since his return to work? Well I think the big point that he was making was that he was back in control fully recovered and I think he was trying very hard to convey the sense of figure and vm optimism which has always been such a big part of his character and his leadership but he also I think trod very difficult line because I think whilst he was trying to convey a sense of optimism a sense that this huge effort that everyone has put in in order to stick to those very tight restrictions at staying at home to try to prevent the spread of the corona virus. He also I think wanted to try to lower expectations about when and by how much those restrictions might be lifted so he made the point very strongly that the British people should be praised and thanked for their efforts but he was insisting that if the restrictions were lifted too soon than that would reach a second peak and that would cause further damage to people's lives but also to the economy which of course is suffering enormous damage through the lockdown. Well also joining us on the line is Lance Price. He's the former director of communications at number ten Downing Street. When Tony Blair was Prime Minister Lance? Obviously there'll be a huge amount of meetings. We know that that Cobra's already taken place with Johnson. What do you believe the government will be discussing know? What will the approach very much now looking to what Boris Johnson yesterday described the second phase of the crisis and and in many ways. That's the most difficult for ministers to deal with. We know that Boris Johnson was reluctant at the outset to impose a tough lockdown restrictions. But he saw the lights. If you like and and eventually did that. But it's it's much harder to stop to lift those restrictions and it is imposed them in the first place. Because you have to decide when and where you could modify the restrictions and that's going to be the central parts of discussion between ministers in the coming days and we're told an announcement some sort expected before the end of the week. So do you look at certain sectors of the economy that businesses? That were allowed to reopen. Or do you look at certain sectors of the population and say that's an age perhaps though geographically people can Stop to Mingle goal go out more and have more social interactions of one sort or another. I do you do that then. You have the really difficult job of selling that to the to the population at laws. Because if we're all following the same rules that's one thing if there's some rules for some people and different bills for others. It's much much harder self administered Carol. There's been a lot of criticism that the government really isn't sharing any of this information not enough information with the Public Johnson to talk about transparency. Do you think that we will begin to see more of the workings in the science that these decisions will be based on what I think? They will certainly try to make an effort to show that that is what they are doing. I think what we've seen over the last almost four weeks since Boris Johnson has been ill and recovering is the slight sense of vacuum and a government that was reluctant to show even the sorts of changes that it was thinking about for fear that the public would get carried away launch latch onto that and that the number of deaths in the number of infections would not then start to come round. It was interesting that Boris Johnson yesterday made the point that he was going to bring in the new labor leaders. A Kiss Donna and other political leaders I think that is important for the government because it wants to try to bind in potential opposition to the changes because as long says this is going to be very very difficult were already seeing a some signs of real resentment for example amongst the over seventy been told that they're going to have to be shielded that they brought to stay at home. There are of course some over seventy year olds who are incredibly. Fit Run marathons and so on and feel this all patry decision to say to older people. You are at risk you must stay at home is simply not fair and many of them we know are also missing contact with close members of their family that may be one of the areas where the government will try tentatively to try to ease the restrictions somewhat. But I think that point that Lance was making about the public is a very important one. I think the government really wants to try to take the public with it. The danger is if you start trying to say certain. Sections of the population can Now have greater freedom to do some of the things that they enjoy doing to make contact with other family members to go back to work and so on whereas other members of the population were you. Divide that by age or by geographical location cannot have those restrictions lifted lifted. I think that is very very difficult to sell. And that is why it looks to me. More likely that they will look at areas of the economy businesses. And so on and look which of those can be allowed to reopen. Whilst retaining the social distancing measures in order to try to at least contain any increase in those figures on infections sadly death lance is the opposition Labor Party under the new leadership of Sakir Stammer on the same page as the government. Well they all in the sense of backing the government's restrictions and instructions to the public but they have been putting pressure kissed on the right from day one of his leadership. Say there's been saying to the Prime Minister and two other ministers that you've got to be much more open with the public about your thinking. So he called on his first day for an exit strategy and he won't he's had the public deserve to be treated like grownups on that we should be told what the possible routes out of. This might be so that we can have a grown up discussion about that. I and I think the Labour leader has made it clear that he's going to give constructive oppositions he's not going to oppose parole position's sake but he does know that at the end of all. They are going to be very very difficult. Questions for the government to onset of ministers to answer whether it's on the provisional protective equipment so testing and all the rest of this and and he's not abdicate the role of opposition in order to get finished as a a a free ride in even in the depths of crisis A meanwhile the the daily corona virus briefings continue but with a slightly different formats. Carola government's not taking questions from the public will make a difference. Well I think this is part of that effort to try to show that they are transparent this effort to try to show that they really want to take the public along with them as this virus continues and as the restrictions look likely to continue in some form or another for many months to yesterday. We had the first of questions which are submitted by the public of course. Thousands were submitted and there was an independent polling order organization brought in to choose which question would be selected. We heard from one a citizen in skipped in Yorkshire. Who was asking when she'd be able to see her grandchildren again. And I think that although this was an important gesture towards allowing the public some sense that they're having a say in all this it has to be said that none of those present were able to give her any kind of clear ideas to win. That would happen. The scientists world saying well it slightly depends on the fingers. It's slightly depends on a when those infection rate start. Continue to come down. The government was saying well. We are looking at this in the round. We don't want to take risks with the population hancock. The Health Secretary was insisting that he didn't want to take risks with people's lives and yes I think it's important for the government to be seen to be listening to what the people are saying but the crunch point is going to come when it comes out with those decisions to what if anything is going to change and we see the response to that I mean because he made a handcart made a great point yesterday of saying that they don't see questions before they're actually asked them during the the briefing live. It would seem to me. That might make more sense for them to have an idea of what the questions were so they would have the answers. Yeah perhaps they might have been able to give linen skipped in a bit clearer answer to her question but I think they're trying to make the point that they already unprepared to take on an address any of the questions that people have now. There is a sense that this is a gesture. One question Once a day two a government minister the particularly government minister who is holding that news conference Easily of course a very limited say in what is happening. But I think this is part of them trying to show that they're open trying to demonstrate the transparency which Boris Johnson was very keen to talk about. And what you've seen is as launch was mentioning this pressure on the government to show the sorts of things it's talking about people have drawn comparisons with Nichola Sturgeon Scotland's first minister who put out a document about the government's approach. When you look through it to be perfectly honest didn't say a great deal more than the sort of information that we've got in the five tests which the government has in the covering the whole of the UK has set out which are getting guide it when it decides water win restrictions can be lifted but she had made the point of bringing out a lengthy document talking about various options. And I'm sure that that is the sort of thing that we certainly will see As we go through this we we know. Boris Johnson is chairing unimportant cabinet meeting on Thursday. We know Thursday is also very important date when the government has said that it hopes to hit one hundred thousand tests a day for frontline workers. Those are all being targeted front line workers. At the moment even yesterday was still many tens of thousands of that but I think what we get towards the end of the week the government will want to at least signal where it intends to go next in as we continue to where it tends to go next in terms of exactly which restrictions are going to be lifted. Who's going to be allowed to have those greater freedoms but I think that they will stress out all of this that if those infection rates start to climb up again then there is always the risk that the restrictions will simply have to be reimposed and overriding all of this. That is something that the government does not want to do lance just finally very quickly from you. How much other businesses being done? Brexit Brexit is still carrying on. Of course there's the real question about whether or not at the end of the period should be extended because can you deal with two major disruptions to the economy at one time but the government sticking to their line that they are going into. We'll transition has come to an end at the end of this year. Of course there is a whole boss range of other business which is still very home and sometimes the news but I wonder what would have been that bulletin. If you haven't been to the virus there's no still happening. Thanks very much. Indeed that was launched price and Carol

Olof Palme assassinated - Feb. 28, 1986

"The day was February. Twenty Eighth Nineteen eighty-six Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme was assassinated. The case remains unsolved though the investigation of the murder is still underway. Olaf Palme got his law degree from the University of Stockholm in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. He soon joined the Social Democratic Labour Party and got a job. In Sweden's Defense Ministry in Nineteen fifty. Three Palma was hired as the speechwriter. And Private Secretary of Tog Earl. Under the Prime Minister of Sweden from nineteen forty six to nineteen sixty nine palme was elected as a member of parliament in nineteen fifty seven and he continued to climb the political ladder in nineteen sixty three. He was appointed cabinet minister without port. Folio that title just means that he was elevated to the rank without being given responsibilities for a specific area of the government's activities from nineteen sixty five to nineteen sixty seven. Palme was minister of communication and in nineteen sixty seven. He was minister of Education and Culture AS MINISTER OF EDUCATION. He advocated for the inclusion of Marxist thought in curriculum and in nineteen sixty eight he marched against US involvement in the Vietnam War Homma morphed into an outspoken opponent of US foreign policy and as a result relations between Sweden and the US deteriorated in nineteen sixty nine. He was elected chairman of the Social Democratic Party and he became Prime Minister of Sweden. Pomme continue to be critical of the US's involvement in the war in Vietnam. He forged connections with cultural leaders and politicians around the world all the while gaining more international attention. He spoke out against apartheid in South Africa. He allied with Fidel Castro Prime Minister of Cuba at the same time Sweden with undergoing extensive social reforms. Some of the issues that these reforms affected were subsidized housing. Social Security Maternity leave and other family policies. This meant that taxes in Sweden or some of the highest in the World Palma's first term as prime minister lasted until nineteen seventy six when the lack of support for the Social Democrats led Palma to fall from power during this time. He acted as a mediator in the Iran hostage crisis as well as the Iran Iraq war but he was once again elected prime minister taking office in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. He continued to focus on international issues addressing wines like disarmament and security but he had evolved to become a little less politically controversial on February. Twenty Eighth Nineteen eighty-six Palmer and his wife least bit. We're walking home from the movies in Stockholm. He did not have bodyguards with him at the time just before midnight. Palme was shot from behind the first bullet which hit him in the back severed his spinal cord a second bullet Grace Lee bit. He was quickly transported to the hospital but he was declared dead mini conspiracy theories about who killed. Palme are merged a man named Chris. Dr pedder shown was arrested and convicted of his murder. But the conviction was overturned in Nineteen eighty-nine and pederson died in two thousand and four. Investigators have suspected the sweetest military. The South African Secret Service and the Kurdistan Workers Party though there were many witnesses to the shooting and thousands of people have been questioned. The murderer has not been solved.

'Viral: Anti-Semitism in Four Mutations': A Close-Up on Hatred

"In an unhealthy society? That has problems. They say who did this to us? And the Jews are always candidate. That's columnist George will who's featured in a new documentary on anti-semitism out in theaters across the country on Friday with us in the studio to discuss that film is its creator. Andrew Goldberg in two thousand nine. Andrew focused his lens on the resurgence of Anti Jewish hatred around the world and in mainstream media but after the two thousand sixteen election and the CHARLOTTESVILLE rally where protesters proclaimed the Jews will not replace us. Goldberg felt compelled to return to the topic for an even deeper exploration in viral for mutations of anti-semitism Goldberg travels through four countries. The United States Great Britain France and Hungary to speak firsthand with victims witnesses anti-semites an high profile figures including bill. Clinton Tony Blair Deborah Lipstadt and AJC Europe director. Simone Rodin Benkin in Pittsburgh. He examined the far right ideas that led to the attack on the tree of life synagogue in Hungary he looks at the Anti Immigration. Anti George Soros anti-jewish propaganda promoted by the government and in the UK. He explores the pain caused by the Anti Zionist messages from the UK's Labor Party the film also explores the repeated violence against Jews in France carried out by Islamists Andrew. Welcome glad to be here. Thank you so thank you for making this documentary and I'm curious. Can you kind of take our audience back to the original conception of it and how it evolved over time since I believe some events actually transpired in the making of the documentary will shortly after the election? We noticed there was sort of an uptick in anti Semitic incidents around the country. There were series a bomb threats which we know turned out to be bogus but those caught. Everyone's attention and suddenly everyone was noticing things and shortly after that a lot of tombstones were desecrated several different cemeteries and then the sort of global eyeballs started to notice these things talk about them more in the press and online and we immediately thought we should make a film about antisemitism and we didn't know what it would look like or what it would be. I think our initial thoughts were that would be about the United States but as we did more and more research and we knew this was a global issue. We knew it was happening in other countries. But as you unpack these things you realize that. There's an urgency to a lot of these stories and so we decided to really expanded and to look at four different situations. Those would be the far right in the United States. The far left in England in Hungary where the prime minister has launched a massive PR campaign against a Jewish philanthropist and in France where Islamist have been killing Jews in various terror attacks and other violent attacks against Jews to the tune of what unofficial numbers seemed to be more than three thousand a year. Now you've been making documentaries and doing journalism for twenty years As have I and I was a religion reporter for fifteen years in Chicago and I will tell you when I came here. I was stunned by just how much people hate. Jews. And I'm curious you I. I mentioned this to a former colleague at the Tribune recently and his response. He's in his eighties. He said we'll of course you grew up at a different time You know it's no surprise to me but yeah of course you didn't realize I'm just curious if this was a real shock to your system as you were doing the reporting the idea that Jews are hated was never foreign to me. I mean keep in mind. I'm fifty one and so I grew up where the Holocaust was not that far off. I mean I was raised in the seventies so I guess it was still thirty years old but it was not as it is now sixty plus years old where the next generation of people don't even know it was there Growing UP IN CHICAGO BEING JEWISH WAS It was not something to be celebrated at least among my friends and among my peers. I was made fun of for it a few times. It wasn't I didn't grow up in the midst of it but the Holocaust was connected to us in a way that it was very very real and so for that reason I understood that Jews were absolutely despised and I started making films in my first film that had anything to do with Jewish subjects was around two thousand and two or so and you know it was about Eastern European Jewish life before the war. So we're talking about you. Know all black and white footage of shuttles of Warsaw of what we might call the Yiddish world and that whole world is utterly destroyed in Eastern Europe and in Europe and in Russia and that made it pretty easy to see and in doing that film I started to learn about it. I automate fillmore at antisemitism in the media in the Middle East at one point and you realize that it is it is widespread. There's Anti Semitism where there are Jews. There's antisemitism where there are not Jews. There's Anti Semitism among people who are friends with Jews so my awareness of this has grown so in other words you entered into this project knowing there was a history of this but you had never seen it kind of in the current context as well. I had not seen it the way I see it now. I when I made a film in two thousand seven on antisemitism in the in the in the arab-islamic world per particularly North Africa and the Middle East I didn't focus that much on Europe and the US at the time antisemitism in the US was a very minor issue compared to what it is now. I don't want to say it was minor because there were plenty of people experiencing antisemitism but we didn't have it to the magnitude and we didn't have the Internet the way we do now but I knew that it was alive and well in the Middle East and that was surprising to see just how deep it is just how woven into the fabric of conversation and media it is. I was interviewing some kids in Egypt on the street and I said to them what are Jews they said User Satan Jews are evil. Juice should die. I said what if a Jewish kid was walking right here across the street and got hit by a car. They said we would call an ambulance. These two ideas existed right next to each other. And that's what's so interesting. One is in the abstract one is in the day to day Would you say that abstract versus day day is what's also infecting Western Europe United States? This wave of anti-semitism that we're seeing or is it. Is it very different? I think they crossover so for example. In Hungary there's virtually no violence against Jews In Hungary a survey showed that forty percent. Forty two percent of Hungarians held at least one or more anti Semitic views. Does that mean that? The people by larger anti-semites probably not but it means that the numbers are higher. Those numbers were higher than they were anywhere else in Europe or give or take a country. How many countries are there in Europe? A lot right so but there's no violence against Jews physical violence. That's what I mean physical violence against Jews but those lines do tend to cross over at points and so the fear is that it can translate these nationalist movement so in Hungary just to give some context the government has launched a huge campaign against George. Soros it's on Mute right now. It's not running right now but it ran not too long ago during the European Union elections. It came back up again. I asked one of the spokespeople of Hungary will come back and he told me that it would come back in a very consistent way so the whole idea that the Hungarian government has put forth. Is that this Jewish billionaire. George Soros is out to flood the nation with Muslim immigrants and since Muslim immigrants in the eyes of the Hungarian government are bad. You the Hungarian citizen the White Christian Hungarian citizen are in danger. And you're in danger because of a Jew. So here's these people are all worked up about a Jew who actually isn't doing anything like this but yet at the same time they're not vandalizing. All the Jewish shops are not beating Jews. And what have you? Although there's I've heard some rumblings that a little of that has happened so we'll have to see but I'm no expert on the data right. Well I think that's the argument. I mean argument. Deborah Lipstadt makes in the film. For example it starts with words it starts with comments and then does eventually escalate. That's the danger of not addressing it nipping in the bud. When you see. I think that's here right so I think that in America we've seen rage on the Internet translate into violence than I think you know the hatred in Hungary is really a government media campaign which took place on TV on the radio on the Internet. But also on billboards outside it was like an all encompassing life. You would drive down the street and you'd be bombarded with it here This antisemitism isn't billboards. I mean there's we'd see them occasionally but it's all on the Internet and people get the Internet sort of like you and your computer. You Lock yourself in this little space and then you start to get worked up and you start to hate and so we see that. Not all but many of these. Violent attacks in the United States are people who sort of incubated these ideas on the Internet. You raise a good point billboards in Hungary that was the been the vehicle of communication there for that. Soros campaign but I'm curious what about social media. What about the comments in violence on social media is it just as rampant in places like Hungary as it is here we'll so the makeup and the nature of the of the campaign in Hungary? We didn't break down so I don't know what percentage of it certainly on social media and not only was it on social media is a place where people can share about it right so in addition to whatever the government put on social media because the government had all these different forms they had radio they had. Tv They billboards aid magazines. It's social media mailings mailing mailing which is in the film How much of their media mix was the Internet? I don't know but if you're a person with anti Semitic views you can't do anything with billboard but some people did right hateful messages on billboards with magic markers in pain. They actually vandalize them. But by and large the billboards are you don't interact with them in the billboard. Don't post against back and forth a TV commercial. You don't respond to that. The Internet is where everybody took their hatred in their dislike of George Soros and they brought it to the Internet. And I think that's a place where you would see a lot more of this. Anti Jewish rhetoric the Internet is where it becomes the People's action not the government right. You have obsession in the film that talks about the brief history of blaming Jews. And you talk about the films that you've done in the past and the history of this but one critique of the film that I've read is that doesn't include enough historical context now I hear this critique all the time as a journalist you only have so much space or time right to address the whole of a situation but I'm curious what your thoughts are on whether to include more history or trajectory. The history of antisemitism is extremely complex. It grows out of misinterpretations if that's a word of people misinterpreted biblical scripture. It's changed and it's more throughout the centuries throughout Europe. If you WANNA talk about how it's been a part of the story of Christianity knew very thorny and complicated history which takes a long time to get in and out of now take that for a minute and think about. We have limited shelf space in our movie. I always say to people in movies not a casserole but take that from it in a notice that in the film we have that history. We have extensive history of the civil rights movement in the United States with history of the entire Orban's campaign and where that came from in Hungary in Oregon was we talk all about a migration and the history of colonialism in France as to give the backbone of that in England we talk about the Labor Party going all the way back to two thousand and eight. What we don't do is this deep analysis of Christian history but my response is also this. If I make a film about racism in about how African Americans are being shot in the street by police. Do I need to tell you? The history of why blacks are disliked by racists in this country. If I talk about misogyny do I need to tell you? The history of why people are misogynists to me and the same goes for LGBTQ. Americans no one's asking why. Why do I need to get into the fact of why Trans People are being murdered? Right now are being beaten up. I don't need to analyze that. Well that too comes from the Bible. Right hatred of homophobia grows right out of scripture. But I don't need to give that analysis so it's a it. We talk about double standards and antisemitism and I don't want to say this is anti Semitism but it's almost a reflex that people feel like anything has to do with Jews. With antisemitism with Israel has to be held to some type of second order of scrutiny and I found that a little bit frustrating. There've been some debates on college campuses about whether or not Jewish students who are pro. Israel can join feminist marches. Lgbtq right marches. You other causes. They feel excluded from those causes because of their Zionist positions and so. That's where intersection. -ality has come up a lot in conversations here is how do you address that exclusion? Even though it's very different causes communities have gotten together and there has not been room for the Jewish issue of antisemitism has four complicated reasons not been welcome into that crew. Because many in this left is idea. Do not like how they don't like what's going on with the Arab Israeli conflict let's not even parse the Israeli conflict. Unfortunate part of this. Is that a Jewish students who have nothing to do with Israel who are oblivious to Israel are still being singled out now. It's very dangerous to to assume. Length phrases like colleges are a battleground. We visited colleges as we spoke to a lot of students. It's a very complicated and mixed bag. But there's no doubt that on some college campuses and we don't have hard data on how or where or what we have a lot of anecdotes. We have a lot of very upset parents. We have a lot of very upset students. But what that actually translates into numbers. We don't know what we do know. Is that Jewish? Students are being asked to somehow be called to task for what Israel is said to be

"A license join me earlier in the program from NPR she's also a familiar face on fox news talking about twenty twenty the Democrats and much more here's part of my conversation with Mara okay where to begin let's let's start with New Hampshire okay and your response your reaction your analysis now that were a bit removed from what happened about where this race currently stands I think the race currently stands with one candidate who seems to have consolidated the left lane of the party that's Bernie Sanders and the center lane is filled with candidates and sap lane has not coalesced around a single alternative to Sanders he's been winning with twenty two percent of the vote twenty five percent of the vote much much less that he got last time remember New Hampshire twenty sixteen a bit help be calorie Clinton by twenty two percent two got something like sixty percent of the vote what New Hampshire told us this time is a lot of that code for Bernie Sanders last time was anti Hillary it wasn't necessarily pro Sanders because that though didn't just go to another left wing candidate Elizabeth Warren get when people to catch any club which are it tells you that Sanders is the leader he has the most plausible path to get a plurality of delegates just what we see now but the big question is can the center left coalition around one person so let's discuss coalescence first on the progressive side you mentioned Elizabeth Warren she put out at this appeal basically pleading with her supporters earlier saying I need money and I need it now to stay viable through super Tuesday is she don it is done if he can't win somewhere where is she going to win that's a question I mean she was not just competing in New Hampshire he was from Massachusetts message right candidates have a built in advantage that mediate the share of media market with New Hampshire Bernie Sanders is also a neighbor but not the kind of neighbor that people from Massachusetts are so people really knew Alyssa formed in New Hampshire on a voted for her in fourth place and she also put a huge amount of time and effort into Iowa a massive ground game she came in distant third then really stumbled I mean fourth place in Iowa a in in New Hampshire rather is is really catastrophic for her and that's your point is right I look ahead to the next couple states and then super Tuesday where do you see a you know low hanging fruit to be plucked by Elizabeth Warren to actually know where I don't really see nowhere nowhere I don't see one do you think he might want her to stick around just to to eat out aggressive voters so it doesn't get easier for Bernie no yes if that was true but I don't think her voters work all going to Bernie I'd like early on progresses decided if we want to choose between two left wing candidates let's choose the guy who's been around the longest and has never wavered in his belief in our again that may pick Bernie what he started shedding voters remember Elizabeth Warren was once at the top of the heap at the polls when he started hitting voter she showed them to Amy Klobuchar and people to catch so that was pretty interesting this is not has not been a neatly dividing ideological race very important point and I just add one note on that yeah so I saw morning console call where they ask democratic voters for their second choice right to the got their favorite but if not him or her then who and among Joe Biden's supporters next on the depth chart number two choice was Bernie Sanders and rally for Bernie Sanders yeah yeah everyone keeps saying well if if these people all get together then they can stop burning and it's just not quite that simple but it is very obvious that the establishment of the party the center left they're getting extremely worried about Bernie Sanders James Carville is out there shouting to anyone who will listen this is a disaster in the making listen to cut five he was Carville on TV there's a certain part of the Democratic Party wants us to be a cult I'm not interested in being in a call I'm I'm seventy five years old I'm just not a not a very cold to person the only thing the plane began nine states in the abyss if the Democratic Party and if we go to where the British labor party if we nominate German Coleman is going to be to end today I am I'm scared to death I really am the end of days and of course the Jeremy Corbyn references to Bernie Sanders Bernie firing back in cut for Hey was it all the respect is a political hack who said very terrible thing was what he was working for Clinton against Barack Obama Vicki said some of the same things we are taking on troll the Republican establishment call gold and the democratic establishment but at the end of the day the grass roots movement that we are putting together of young people of working people of people of color want real change

New Hampshire Primary Election Results 2020

"Let's return now to the results of the New Hampshire primary key win for Bernie Sanders terrible night for Joe Biden. The first one either while while sound is is so far at least winning the race for Democrats supporters can he convert that into the wider political appeal that he would need to defeat. Donald Trump in November. Joining me to discuss that and some of the day's other top stories are Vincent Vinny. UK correspondent for Euronews and political analyst and former BBC political correspondent. Kara okay. I'm carol normally. If you label anybody in American politics anything in American politics a socialist you might as well call them Communists Ernest. It's it's it's completely fatal and you can see candidate sanders going up against trump and socialists. Being about the only thing Donald Trump says for the next six months absolutely Leeann I think socialism socialist does have different connotations in the United States. It's still something where Donald Trump can successfully whip hop certainly a part part of the American electorate against him. I think what's interesting here is that yes last night was a good night for Bernie Saunders. But he was only a fraction ahead of Pete. Booty judge and we've seen Amy Klobuchar also showing very strongly. There's quite a long way to go in this race Bernie Sanders. This is in many ways. The Jeremy Corbyn of American politics. He's got this very powerful loyal. Fan Base significant pecan grassroots support activists who go out there and campaign for him but he's a very divisive figure. He's divisive even within the Democratic Party. And as I think you suggested that there are many even within the Democratic Movement who think that he is just too left-wing to socialist too radical to win over the number of votes the center ground to win votes back from Donald Trump. I mean Vincent. Those I had some voters being interviewed yesterday. Who Democrats who said? Look if it's if it's Bernie. We're not GONNA win. You might as well not even have the election because trump's in trump's GonNa win the election is there that sense and I suppose there is a parallel here to something we'll discuss later in the Labor Party in the UK. The sounders does very well with activists goes very well with committee diehard Democrats who are going to vote Democrat anyway but it's that question of whether he can win over those voters in the middle the ones who voted for a bomb but then voted not for trump as a two things on this. The first is yeah. There's obvious parallel with Jeremy copen hip. There's an obvious parallel with Donald Trump. Someone who wasn't a Republican came in as the fringe is candidate managed to get a strong movement behind him that really supports them then took over the party. And we're seeing the same thing with Bernie Saunders in. He has this movement that he carried forward Ford from the last election. He never ready suspended parts of his campaign the going through the last couple of years and now he is. He's still registered for the next senatorial race as an independent not even as a Democrat. And so he's coming. He's reregistered as Democrats run. He is running away with it. In these first two states and for the other candidates you know De de Joe Biden is basically what Bush was last time round. You Know Jeb. Bush even brought his. You know his brother former two-time president his dad on board the campaign and still couldn't make a breakthrough so we're seeing that same thing with Joe Biden. We'll see whether he he's GonNa Mention Obama even more in the build up to South Carolina but really now he is pretty much out of this this and if the Democrats want to get moderate candidate will clover shirt. You've got Warren. You've got pete. They and Bloomberg is well. Of course it's not forget they now need to pick one one of them and the others need to fall away. Otherwise they're going to be so split that Bernie Sanders is going to run away with this and the second thing to say is there is an ugly side to the Sanders Campaign Ryan as well. We saw it again. Last night. Cynthia Nixon the actress from sex in the city who try to become New Yorker Governor recently and is now a Bernie supporters. She had to shut down a crowd out who booed when Hillary Clinton's name was mentioned. And we're seeing there. Is this kind of vindictive side and Bernie's campaign the Bernie Bros.. Who are turning off mainstream even Democrats so it remains to be seen if Bernie can bring parties together because there are people unhappy with his conduct? The last election in Calvin mentioned some of the sort of people seen seen as the middle ground candidates. The aim Who did very well yesterday? But he's done well in in both the people around him seem to be trying to frame him now now as twenty twenty s version of Obama as the outside of that no one had heard of. Who's going to storm through the race? But I mean is he is he. Is he in Alabama a Buddha Jiji. You're talking about now. We'll look. He has clearly got charisma. He's young Buddy lacks experience I think it's very difficult to see how he could win over those saunders supporters. Just as. It's very difficult indeed to see. How Bernie Ernie Saunders can win over those that larger number of motors? I think what's interesting if you look at what happened last night Saunders was the victor there were about a third of the votes went to Saunders Elizabeth Warren on the more radical wing of the party more than half went to the others who more or less centrist. But as Vincent was pointing out They've got to make up their minds. Because if that memorial memorial vote is split between several different candidates Then there is a strong possibility that saunders come through the middle. I think we do have to watch out for Michael Bloomberg Berg who has fought this rather on docks campaign of skipping housed on all these primaries but his spending he spent since the beginning of the year more than three hundred million dollars on advertising and advertising campaign. That's getting through too much larger numbers than and these political events which perhaps only capture a small amount of the electorate now. He's a bit of an unknown quantity But he we'll certainly feel looking at the fact that there's no other really clear front runner at the moment that he still has to be in there with Jones. Obviously we will learn more. We we get to Super Tuesday at the beginning of March not may well be the death knell for Joe Biden. If he's not able to to to get anywhere but we never parallels British and American politics and in the general election in the UK. Back in December. You bumped into people said the choice I've been given is a hard right conservative government or hard left Labor government Vote is actually. Don't feel they sit in the middle in the end of the vote is did break left him right pretty much consistently if you go through that in America if it sounded Zondo's trump then what happens to those middle ground. American voters is the reason. No third party candidate has ever done anything other than screw up the mathematics the electoral college so presumably they all just going to have to pick a side. Yeah people always you know early on campaign people worried about Tulsi Gabbard splitting the Democrat. Vote but but I think just to go back on one part of your question. A we call Joe Biden now on one thing is that he polls extraordinary high with black voters and has ninety-nine percent name recognition in America. When we get to the next one which is South Carolina very You know African American state. He might surge ahead that it was interesting that he actually. He left New Hampshire last night before the result and he had a rally in South Carolina and then with Super Tuesday much more diverse state. So he could pull stuff back Because because you know Pete Bootleg does very poorly with black voters. Amy Club shells also good issues as a time as a lawyer in in terms of criminal issues that she prosecuted And so do you know. It's not absolutely so not yet but yeah it is for a lot of people. You Know Bernie. Democrats will have the same problem that Republicans had with trump. Is it. Do you just hold your nose and vote for him can burn. He put through a message of we have to get trump out which is what Joe Biden has been trying to do. You might not think I've got all these you know snazzy new policies but I'm just the take back the soul of America get trump out and what what the camp has to do behind Bernie is to really say say you know you have to hold your nose and vote for him just to get trump out but his policies and particularly an attack. I heard last night. The hadn't heard before with Bernie is you know. He took his honeymoon in the. US are before the Iron Curtain fell now in America that is going to play so bad and I think we're going to hear a lot more about that in the next couple couple of weeks

Ashley Blaker: Goy Friendly

"Talk about some. I'm pretty heavy issues. Israel Iran Patriot of Jews. So our next guest is a pretty big leap for us. Ashley Blaker is Jewish standup comedian. He is the first Orthodox Fox Jewish comedian to be given his own BBC. Show Ashley Blaker. GOYA's guide to Judaism which returned to the air in October. Two Thousand Nineteen. Now he's in New York for his latest off off Broadway. Show Ashley Blaker Goi friendly which premieres at the Soho playhouse. On February third and runs through February twenty third. While his previous off-broadway production strictly unorthodox was tailored for Jewish audiences. This one he says is not just for the Jews. It tells the story of how Ashley's close friendship with Muslim. Comedian Imron on. UCS completely changed his life with antisemitic incidents on the rise around the globe and even here in New York actually hopes to make the audience laugh but also understand stand a little bit more about their Jewish neighbors Ashley. Welcome to our studio. Thank you for having me so I have to ask you right out of the gate. anti-semitism is not funny. So how how do you address that topic with humor. Well the reality is I think he's anything can be funny. So I'll let you come to Louis showing judge whether I make. It isn't about antisemitism. I should say that there is actually a section is a band. Semitism thought. I think the more interesting is the fact that that when antisemitism is on the rise there are two ways of dealing with. This is a way of kind of hunkering down. Just going. We're we're now gonNA stick to ourselves and and try and protect ourselves and put up the security barriers and let's have lots of armed guards on the on the door in social ones bags and all of that stuff all you can kind of outreach. As it were and try and engage with the outside world and that's what my shows about about the latter it's about reaching out to the outside world and in a way this makes wants a comedy show. You know hopefully nonstop funny. Sound sound incredibly dry but Hopefully demystify Judaism a little bit. That's certainly one of the aims. Okay well I would say you could do both right. Do the security see the undercover getting having no security either. All kind of you know very good at that accused but I actually my playbill. I wrote a Performance note and for Bates Him. But I said something about how you know very good dividing ourselves as a as an in one of the things into I enjoy doing you mentioned my show strictly and also those I I love bringing choose together because we figured it kind of separating ourselves in so many different ways you know on the whole joke about the Jewish man who lands on a desert island and he builds two synagogues one ones that he'll go to one that he wouldn't ever be seen dead and that's like what we're like but I do think that there is it is an important time to actually reach out a little bit and we can. I think sometimes certainly not in any way suggesting that we. We are in any way a foot four and symptom of course but I sometimes think that actually being too insular. Isn't that helpful. Listen so now you are from the UK so well the Labor Party. I have to ask you about the Labor Party. I'm afraid But it's often regarded as the political liberal party of choice by many Jews in Great Britain. And I'm curious how you dealt with the last election and whether or not you felt politically homeless as I kept had reading about the Jewish community. There didn't myself but I'm sure other people did and I think that yes certainly in the post for many Jews the Labor faulty will have. I've been there home by just as much as the Conservative Party would be for many Liberal Democrat. We have quite a different political system. Should know to to to the Americans as many but yes I mean. It was incredible. What happened over the last few years and how symtas I'm just rose and seem to not be dealt with toll within the Labor Party in? Yeah it was a terrible thing we still really really been dealt with properly gone away. Yeah I know there were. There were several vile things said many vile things said ed by Labour politicians but then also Jeremy Corbyn himself was talking about the lack of irony that many British Jews seem to have. I don't know if you recall that particular. Yes it was Avia. Yeah it was a video I think from a while ago. Actually but he had yes he had said something. And there's a lot of these kind of allusions I think is because they. They caught clever then. They don't outright. This isn't the foul right then marking the street saying killed the Jews. It's a very allusive. Quite clever thing of of Hinson these particular weight alluding that Jews and Israel inflating the to and to you know the whole talking about antisemitism and anti Zionism also that that things that really came along with the Labor Party and I saw something videos of people saying no no we. We're not intimately to we like the right to choose. I think there's that thing of the good news and the bad news and I think that's a really good. Jews has ones March against Israel and kind of write letters to the Guardian saying that we support Sanctioned bedia smell that kind of thing uh-huh and then the ninety five percent of the badges. I mean that's clearly terrible things so it's been a really dark period and I didn't know it'll be interesting to see in the the next four five years. How things change? Have you tried to address it with humor. There over showed. I just did a toll in opened in in May with my friend Imran you mentioned draymond so imminent. He did a tour together called profit sharing actually breaking news in profit sharing seek clever title. And it's not address head on there are other people addressing this head on and the the truth is the way to look on twitter five minutes especially around the time the election to see that kind of Echo Chamber people. Don't WanNa hear they. You know you you tweet. Something about Labor Jeremy Corbyn and immediately comes back. This prepared list of twenty times. Jeremy Corbyn has both a motion ocean in parliament. That's been helpful to community Blah Blah Blah say. No one listens to each other anymore. People just spout the same thing. So I'm not sure engaging in that kind of way addressing head on is that helpful she because people just don't want to listen right. I'm sure it's the same here with trump and I'm sure there are people who are vehemently say one one thing you don't want to listen to the side. Yes that is. That is a problem that area. So I think that's something we've seen a lot particular around brexit and all these issues as we've had in the UK and the F. But so my show anyway. Mike show look comedy show. That's the the the main PARV. So I'll tell you briefly I mean essence shows. It's about yeah. Tell us about the show but then I also want to hear more about Enron and your friendship so the show about my friend she was Enron said. So that's the kind of I think in film in terms they call that the macguffin. He's kind of you know that you heard that term. I'm not familiar with that. So it's like using the original star wars. I think C. Three Po an onto d two of the macguffin that they're the ones like sent off into onto the desert and enter tattooing. They've got the messages item. Thank you the whole plot revolves from. Then there's no actually about them but it starts from them so in a way money's the macguffin hit because is a true story we're good friends we went untold together. And he's very interested custody my life he didn't know much about Judaism me belly of June. We spent many hours together in the call. He was always drawing because he he's Muslim. Couldn't in claiming been drinking and he's always asked me questions and I kind of wanted to teach him about Judaism. But where do you start. We've got six hundred thirteen commandments. It's too long to the call I didn't want to spend money on guests so I thought well I teach him about the Ten Commandments. And we started looking at the Ten Commandments. And I unrealized. They're not that practical you know he doesn't have an ox next all so there's no need to worry about not coveting it and I so I could. Maybe set myself challenge of coming up with my own ten commandments. That I could be a bit more practical. But they could actually explain what it's like to be an Orthodox Jew in two thousand twenty and in a way. It was my friendship with him. That made me reconsider my Judaism. Because she had I've been living as an Orthodox Jew for the best part of twenty years but it's only when an outside comes along install challenging us at you start having to think about it you start thinking about your love. So that's what the shows about and it's about me going through these ten commandments. My New Ten Commandments. antiquing this to him okay. So do you mind sharing a few of the talk commanded if you're the one of them is thou shalt develop obsessive compulsive disorder okay. She's an integral Paulsville so shoot as But we cover branch of Judy. Check that box right exactly. So we cover a lot of these areas we cover kosher food and living in a Jewish area. We talk about the curse of praying public and this covers a lot of ground really comes a lot of ground in the show and then And then the story I keep finished. The story has a continuation because of how Im- reacted and then what we went off did something together which I don't want to spoil because that's the narrative But it's a pretty funny chairman. I it really is. I'm super proud of it. So you say I did. This show could street Lennox. It was aimed at a Jewish audience. All Jews knock. He's also dogs. Reform Perform Conservative unaffiliated. But Still Jews and I think it's a really. I really wanted to do something. Everyone could cutting joy That would be in a language WIGGs. Everyone can understand but the is serious does not scrimp on the jokes atone. It's the funniest show of ever done this by miles miles because I've already but still called the serious stuff when we do discuss antisemitism and there are some real takeaways well foam it excellent zone. The show's name. Is Ashley. Blaker friendly it's at the Soho playhouse here in New York City from February third to twenty-third. Thank you for joining us. Thank

"labor party" Discussed on People of the Pod

"The International Criminal Court announced it would launch an investigation of alleged war crimes by Hamas and Palestinian armed groups as well as by Israel included on the list of alleged crimes committed by Israel the construction of settlements in the West Bank Israeli prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu has said the icy probe would not deter deter him from further expanding. Israel's presence in the West Bank adding that no one no Israelis know Palestinians would be uprooted from their homes the long-awaited icy announcement followed a five year. Preliminary review of allegations on both sides here to talk about what the latest development means is Raphael Aren the diplomatic correspondent for the Times of Israel Raphael Raphael. Welcome back to the show. Thank you pleasure being with you again. So now you just had a very extensive interview with the prosecutor in this case and I would love to talk a little bit about that but also please forgive me. I'm not sure what changed. On December twentieth when the icy prosecutor made this this announcement wasn't she always pledging to seek accountability on both sides of the conflict was was it basically her just saying I'm not pulling the plug or yeah what what chain though. She actually made the decision to go. To the next level the ICY has by and large three stages of probes it starts with the preliminary examination. and which is the period that you referred to. It took five years for her to do that. And she's basically gathering information but she's I'm only speaking speaking to officials she's inviting witnesses but it's it's all basically on the public domain and is eighty hoping that she would decide that okay. She doesn't have have enough to open an actual investigation. What she said on December twentieth is that she intends to open a criminal investigation? But she's not exactly actually doing that right now because she's not convinced that the court actually has jurisdiction to get involved and she said before I started investigation and we start ah lengthy and costly process and then it will be shut down because Somebody will find that we don't have jurisdiction before I even start. I'm going to ask a pretrial chamber her off the court itself the court has the prosecutor's office these are the ones who do the investigation. And then it has also a pre trial chamber these three judges and they will decide to what extent the court has jurisdiction over so-called situation in Palestine. Only when they say yes you do have jurisdiction and then she will go ahead and open an actual criminal investigation and that is actually quite dramatic. Because that's a criminal process. That means that the ice is C- could theoretically cle- start issuing arrest warrants against as suspects without even knowing about it So many Israelis will think twice before they traveled to countries That are members of the SEC. Okay so now what would give the icy jurisdiction here well. So that's the big argument right now. Israeli government is arguing that the court has no jurisdiction whatsoever. So let's take a step back. Israel is not a member of the court and therefore the court has absolutely no jurisdiction over Israel now Palestine In two thousand fifteen became and member. FDIC by acceding to the Rome Statute Durham Statute is sort of the foundational document of the court and once the Palestinians were given non member state status by the UN General Assembly. They could theoretically Accede to the Rome Statute and become a member of the court in two thousand fifteen frustrated over the lack of process in the piece of progress in the peace process. They took that step and started right away asking for the prosecutor to start prosecuting Israeli alleged war crimes so these ratings are saying well. But they're still you know there's no such. The thing is a state of Palestine they should've never exceeded to the Rome. Statute certainly they are not sovereign over the territory. They claim for their state. And you can only transfer it to the courts criminal jurisdiction over your territory if you actually have sovereignty over the territory which Israel argue. They don't know taught to been sued the the prosecutor she argues that it doesn't matter whether Palestine is a state or not am for the the term purposes of the Rome. Statute it is because it was allowed to accede to the Rome Statute informally become a member of the court initially told me in the interview. It is strange. Strange that We admitted Palestine as a member but then Palestine cannot do what this court was meant to do. which is you know? prosecute and look into into war crimes committed on on these territories but now Israel is investigating its own idea forces for wrongdoing during the Gaza conflict. Right yes And even here you could argue and again The prosecutor hasn't made a decision yet. She thinks that War Crimes may be. He committed and whether Israel sufficiently investigates itself. We'll have to be determined in the investigation. You can argue that Israel is not doing it well lanark and let me just say Very briefly we have a lot to discuss in very little time but one of the alleged war crimes Israel is accused of committing is building settlements and building. Settlements is as you yourself said right now government policy so Israel kind of investigating ourselves for committing that crime. We're you know is the Israeli government Um and actually takes pride in expanding settlements right so in other words. They're certainly not going to investigate that as a crime but just the wrongdoing that might have been committed during the Gaza conflict. That's the war crimes that they would be investigating. What about Hamas are they able to or have they already begun investigating the allegations against them? No absolutely not Absurdly you know how mass takes pride in committing these war crimes and the the ACC prosecutor acute actually mentioned that one hundred page decleration that she issued on December twentieth While Israel does have some kind of mechanism to investigate its own wrongdoing. House doesn't and therefore it's going to be much easier To make a case that Hamas come to war crimes she acknowledges that clearly takes pride in attacking civilians that they are resumed actress. You got it okay. So let's back up here. There are one hundred twenty member states in the icy see. The United States is not one of them nor is Israel which you mentioned earlier. Why not why are these countries not members of the ICC? How did this all begin again? Well is there. I was actually involved in the discussions about the founding Off the ICC Israel still is in favor of an international or jurisdiction and the fact that there should be an international global institution fighting against the war crimes and mass atrocities however it was very clear early on to the Israeli government that this institution in the hake is going to taking biased. And that's why the Americans and by the way many other countries that here in the region Turkey and of course all the Arab states and Iran and none of mistakes mistakes here in the region Joined the court clear clearly because they fear that it's going to turn against them at some point which is kind of an inherent I in the in the court that the court can only investigate countries that have themselves joined the court and the real evil doers like Venezuela China and Iran and many other countries Cuba for example that I in actual need of Of War Crime Investigations. They can touch because they you know never joined the the court. Yeah so the way that it works in most cases that that Sort of African leaders Can Say Well you know. I'm African country X.. And the guy before for me he committed war crimes. Investigate him Because we joined the CA- we joined the court and we are now okay but the guys before us they were really evil dictators. That's most of the cases That the court has looked into it. We have For example Afghanistan and there's right now a preliminary investigation going on against UK and the American soldiers who allegedly committed crimes against against a local populations in Afghanistan But it doesn't seem that this is going to go anywhere Again the Americans are have threatened the icy with consequences and it seems that he is backing down from from this whole process. And so right now. The focus is really on African countries. And these really put in conflict so who has the ICC accused or tried or even convicted in recent years actually doesn't have much Success I have to say I don't have the numbers in front of me right now and it's probably acknowledged I think in the last couple years there was only running one indictment one has to understand the ACC is Is really rather toothless tiger. It creates a lot of interest and walk ramifications sound bombastic batting But they don't really have a mechanism to get people even if somebody's Accused of war crimes. They can only put you in the dock if they they get a hand on a new and somebody can just needs to a country that is not going to cooperate with the court and then that person will never will never see courtroom from the inside. So that's part of the icees baton reputation that They do a lot of investigation that do a lot of finger pointing and accumulations nations but they actually bring very few evil men and women to justice. Okay so if this toothless tiger does find that reason to proceed or one or both of these parties guilty of war crimes. What could happen? And what are the chances of ruling before the next election the next two Israeli early election you mean the next Israeli election. Yes well well I guess the next American election to well let me tell you absolutely zero and the preliminary in the preliminary preliminary investigation took five years right now. We're still in the the face where the court has to figure out whether it's going to start an investigation. No the investigation could take many long years as well as I said. It's a criminal trial. She has to reinvestigate everything from scratch. Yes to invite witnesses. She can no longer rely on publicly available information. She actually has to do a criminal trial but like in law and order and like really established facts. And that's going to take years. She will not even being office. It will be a different prosecutor and this can be expected if it ever happens to take years if not decades and this is only only the investigation now I if the investigation is concluded and they decide to proceed with a trial then you have the actual trial and again the trial. Hi will only take place if the accused alleged perpetrators of crimes show up in court now. Let's say general of the IDF. If Marsha X. is being accused of war crimes while he just doesn't show up and then nothing happened absolutely nothing happens okay. Well I know you will continue. Continue to follow this and we will continue to follow your coverage Raphael. Thank you so much for shedding some light on it. Thank you for having me Bishop..

Future of the Labour Party, ICC Investigation, Black-Jewish Relations

"Liam whore is the Europe editor for moment magazine. It has been covering Labor's antisemitism awesome scandal since two thousand fifteen. He joins us now to help us understand. What's next for that party for British Jews and for the United Kingdom Liam? Thank you so much for joining us. I thank you for inviting me for the most part analysts are chalking up. Labour's defeat to having the wrong message on Brexit but there is is no doubt that Jeremy Corbyn. The Labour leader was historically unpopular. And no doubt that a part of that unpopularity was due to the anti eighty. Semitism that he let grow in the party. Are there grumblings on the far left that Jews are responsible for his defeat. And that's something that British Jews are worrying about. I think what we've seen since the election is people on the far left at Labor constituency meetings and online researching the British Jewish Institutions. Such as the Board of Deputies or indeed the chief rabbi Were in fact stories or conservatives I should say and innocent intervening in the election on their side. That's what he wanted to the things that the board of Deputies hope that the future Labour leader will expunge from the and that is one reason why they've come forward with the ten pledges in recent days. You mentioned the list of ten pledges that the Board of Deputies the kind of umbrella Ella Organisation for British Jews that the Board of Deputies released just a couple of days ago they basically say that these are the ten things or perhaps the first ten things the Labor Party needs to adopt needs to do in order to heal its relationship with the Jewish community. And we don't need to go through them one by one but broadly what are these ten pledges calling calling for. Well as you say broadly the first thing is that Outstanding Cases Anti Semitism in the Party needs to be resolved and the discipline under reprocessed to have to be made independent again and sh- interference from the leadership team sort of around. Jeremy Corbyn in this process must come to an end thereafter. What's I think? What's important folder? The board is to reestablish a working relationship with the leader of your party after all when a function is to be a conduit between the panoply of organizations they represent and and the government Foreign bodies and so forth and finally just add that one of the things they want to see done is that the full I h Ra the definition of Anti Semitism. With all of these examples applauses will be introduced and used in disciplinary cases within the party. That was a major eric. Eric disputes within the party last year or earlier this year. And that's one of the things I want to get done here at. AJC We're very proud of having been a part of authoring during the era definition but for our listeners who aren't familiar with the definition and why it's so important. Can you just say a word about that. Well because of dispute within the party I should say making making more specific is that People on the far left of the party were concerned that this definition would prevent them from Criticizing sizing Israel or Israeli policy. Which of course? He's not well. The definition does he's indicate ways in which rhetoric concerning Israel Israel can tip over into antisemitism I believe for example if people would say that the actions of the Israeli government towards what's the Palestinians in some way resemble the actions of Not Towards Jews in Europe in the nineteen forties So really they had nothing to worry about. But this is all tied to a much larger augmented. It was rambling on throughout the entirety of Jeremy Comex leadership of the Liberal Party concerning anti Israel rhetoric break and wearing that becomes at. You haven't ISM or for example. If someone challenging British Jews were to somehow hold them accountable for the actions actions of the Israeli government. I think that would also be seen as anti Semitic under the IRA definition which is really important. Considering the way that often we've seen across Europe and perhaps in Britain specifically people tried to do that. Try to discredit jus. I think there's a slur that has cropped up in the UK. Zayas people who you you know. They're interested in defaming and demeaning. They don't really have any way to do it except to try to tie them to Israel so I think it's important that the Labor Party adopts the definition in order to make very clear to its constituents that that kind of thing is anti Semitic well quite an in recent days we have an example of that which is that There's no sort of I would say online activists By the name of Rachel cousins. Who goes by the alias? Rachel Swindon who has a following of tens of thousands of people on twitter. It's unclear whether she is or is not in fact a member of the party but she's nonetheless very close to the sort of cold and leadership and in response to the boards pledges. She tweeted that as I previously said that the board was essentially a conservative organization and also came out with is her own or Or perhaps found only list of pledges for the board which more or less argue that the board had to come out and condemn Israeli military action. In the West Bank thank or condemn what she calls the ethnic cleansing of Palestinian communities in in the West Bank in other words as you said holding British Jews accountable for the actions. uh-huh office ready government. which if they at the very least a dangerous road to go down and she somebody who has previous four in this regard having tweeted about the rothschilds and the so-called influence in the past so the point of this is to say that changing the Leo Party is only the first step? They won't be root and branch Tusk to erotic antisemitism from the Ponti it is always interesting to see how those people who take part in what is called the new antisemitism this kind of attacking Jews shoes on the basis of what Israel does how at the end of the day they are also just old antisemites in the way that she brings up Rothschild conspiracies and things like that. I wanted to ask you about one of the pledgers. In particular number eight is entitled engagement with the Jewish community to be made via its main representative groups and then in explains Labor must engage with the Jewish community Levi its main representative groups not through fringe organizations and individuals. That sounds like it's referencing. Something like there's some history there. Can you tell us a little bit about that. Sure I mean I mean Jeremy Corbyn is somebody who was throughout the time he was leader of the party. Never very much interested in the views and concerns all mainstream British Jewish ortganizations. He has historically been in most of the time that he was leader. Always much more comfortable with what the board calls fringe organizations for example He wasn't much interested in The Jewish Labor movement which is sort of the mainstream Organiz ation all Jews in Labor Party or affiliated with the party rather Jewish Voice Labor whose membership I think could fit into a phone box. I mean if you look at their rallies and meetings the the next in the Guardian newspaper. It's always the same ten fifteen twenty people who assigning these latches At the same time At one of the times when the relationship between Jerry in British Jewish groups was was at his lowest he attended a Saito organized by a group called choose. Who are legitimate tendency in the Jewish community and represent people who have felt themselves felt this affiliated pushed away from the mainstream left-wing clock but they themselves I'm sure would say the reps and also a a very small number of people also Jeremy's also been affiliated with sort of anti-zionist ultra Orthodox people who live in his community but he did not have a working relationship with the board he did not have a working relationship with the chief rabbi in so far as I know and not that he had a working relationship with with the Jewish Leadership Council? which sort of is a you might say a rival organization to the Board of Deputies also a representative group so this point eight? This engagement group is really about the board wanting to reestablish Atlantic communication and a working relationship with the party which is sort of one of the sort of raison. d'etre foil for the board. It sells I'm going to move on in just a moment. Kind of forward-looking questions but there is one more retrospective effective thing that I'm curious about. which is what are we to make of people who are real friends of the Jews or certainly seem to be who campaigned for Labor in this last election? I'm thinking of people for example like London. Mayor Sadeq Khan who has said all the right things about anti Semitism done many of the things about about antisemitism but nevertheless tried to make Jeremy Corbyn the next prime minister should we hold that against him. I case if someone likes to Econ we should not hold that against against him and I think I think you know people who reunite kind of position which is to say supposedly oh party but not supposed to Jeremy Corbyn were very torn because the reality is the British electoral system that much like the Americans. There's it ends up becoming a two-party system Elections to the House Elsa parliament more or less function like elections to the House representatives. There are six hundred fifty constituencies. Each insurance becomes its own kind of to race and in many any of them the racist between Labour and the Conservatives and so sort of I would say anti anti Semitic Labor supporters found themselves in a very Korea unenvious position of having to decide. Do I vote for the Conservatives and put into power party that I oppose my entire adult life likely. ooh Aw do I grit my teeth and vote for the Labor Party on the basis that I am somehow voting for the Party and voting for the candidate in my constituency. But somehow not Jeremy Corbyn and I you know I as a journalist. I love about the free in this regard. So I don't have to make such compromises but I nonetheless feel for people who know people like I said Connor or you could answer this people like just flips. Who is now a candidate for leadership who it's not about Anti Semitism in the pause About the kind of compromises. They had to make that time. So no we we. We shouldn't hold I bet against As you intimate in about a month the voting will begin to elect a new leader of Labor this kind of an interesting quirk for our American listeners. The voting voting will actually stay open for more than a month through the beginning of April and people can vote. I guess anytime in that span. Who are the names that we need to know who are likely Lee to win the election and are any of them going to be you know kind of on their own? The answer to Labour's antisemitism problem tackling the antisemitism crisis is not as simple as for lack of a better way of putting removing the head from the snake Having Jeremy Corbyn leader suddenly a good thing because the cost was it the crisis could not be it's solution But in terms of who will become the next leader There this prison time probably two main candidates on the one hand you have Rebecca Long Bailey who is perceived to be the continuity Corbin candidate the date.

Australians Debate What To Do About Climate Change

"USTRALIAN still have time talking about climate change. Despite suffering record-breaking temperatures and unprecedented fire season global warming is generally accepted as fact in the country that just experienced its hottest and driest year on record in two thousand nineteen but Australia is also the the world's largest exporter of coal after hearing the parliamentary election. One of the biggest issues was what the media term. The Climate Wars Australian voters rejected the Labor Party which was lobbying for the country to move aggressively away from fossil fuels. NPR's Jason Bobi and reports from Sydney unlike debate on the issue in the US. For for a Lotta people refuse to accept establish science in Australia. The debate is more about the urgency of climate change. And how much should be done on it. How quickly with smoke? In the the air the record heat the ongoing drought millions and millions of acres of land on fire. There are daily reminders of the reality of the changing planet. But that doesn't mean people people agree on what should be done about it if you go back a couple of decades. There was largely bipartisan support in terms of climate action. That's Mark Houten. He's the director of the Climate Climate Change Institute at the Australian National University in Canberra but for a few different reasons With gone into a period of extreme polarization about climate change Enj- quite extraordinary degree of polarization about climate. Change three years ago. The Prime Minister Scott Morrison back when he was the treasurer famously brought a softball sized lump of coal into parliament in thrust it defiantly in the air is despicable. This is call fried treasurer nuys. The road along trump's ropes. It's called men and women who work and live in electric's of those offices Morrison said Coal Exports Ford what has made the Australian economy globally competitive. He accused legislators who are pushing for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions of stifling Australian jobs and he also suggested that his opponents suffer from a mental disorder is opposite. have an ideological illogical thea of good for qualified financially Mr Spike. But that's the malady that afflicts thighs opposite how the Australian National University says the polarization around on climate change has kept the country for moving forward. Not just to try to reduce emissions but to put in place additional coping measures like beefing up firefighting budgets. It's in bringing in more waterbombing airplanes. What's really extraordinary in Australia? is even though the politics are actually very toxic and problematic. Must Australians want action on climate change a poll last year from the Lao Institute the Think Tank in Sydney founded Australians listed climate change as the biggest threat facing the country in the coming decade cade and ninety percent of them said they wanted the government to take action on the issue. The town of Control of Park on the east coast south of Sydney was ravaged by wildfires. What's that flared? Over New Year's more than eighty houses were destroyed in two people died in the town. The community halls turned into a relief. Supply Station tables piled Donald with clothes. Toiletries food all of water. There's still no power generators running out front keep icing milk. Cold in a refrigerated shipping container. Deputy Mayor Patricia White is visiting the Community Center for the first time since the fire I leave about thirty K.. 's Up the road. I got stuck in the five as well but I've been itching to come down to this community because they like family to me. Whites and independent considers herself right of center. She's frustrated by how difficult it is to get people across the political spectrum to compromise during debates about climate change on the city council. They don't want to accept somebody else's opinion. She says the city council had a huge fight over whether to convert all municipal buildings to run entirely off solar. So do I signed to a right Pyeho. I'm not collecting the rubbish through online. Going to click the Ravi lobby ship three weeks because I need to save money because I want to put a solid roof on the toilet. You've got a balancing act and how you do it. She says everyone needs to back off in her words injured too because nearly everyone in Australia accepts that climate change is a real problem but it's an abstract and to some terrifying problem and end agreeing on exactly what should be done about it right now is proving almost impossible.

UK Labour Party to Begin Contest to Succeed Corbyn as Leader

"The starting gun was probably fired this weekend in the race to become the next leader of Britain's main opposition Labor party it has already become a crowded field with each candidate trying to offer a clean break with the past yet unwilling to upset the Labor hardcore. He seems to be the only people he wanted to vote for them. In last month's general election Who wants to begin? I I let me start with you. Whoever takes over from Jeremy Corbyn does so from a position of absolute rock? Bottom for the party. Don't don't they let let's sort of set the scene I well. Let's hope so From their point of view that it's rock bottom because sinking further would not be a good thing and that's the spirit I think. Yes I mean. Obviously the last election was a disaster. I mean particularly I think a lot of the figures that came out made it pretty clear that in fact the Tory vote hadn't uneven increased that much it was more that the Labor voted collapsed. There was a very big problem for the neighbor policy. And I think a lot of that looking at the polling was to do with Jeremy Corbyn personally there was so say Brexit was a big issue for them But I think overwhelmingly it was coming out in the polls the person she with him say almost anybody who replaces aces him is kind of starting with the level of improvement there and in a sense brexit policy now moves into different states because of course we know Brexit is going to happen on the thirty first of January. And then there's a we're going to move into negotiation stage on withdraw and all of that now that kind of changes the mechanics of that for Labour leader. They can't anymore. There's not much political to revoke cool. Remain or anything like that or they just Phillips did talk yesterday about rejoin as a future possibility But I think really it changes the mechanics. It's about them talking. Just opposing do want this posted as an opposition government opposing what the Conservatives are doing so. We're probably going to hear it. Also talk about you know Brexit is going wrongly their mishandling it etc so we have the runners and writers stepping up Mary ranging from Remain human rights lawyer. Who is a shadow? A shadow secretary He campaigned hard for a second referendum. To someone who wants to think about rejoining to cookie cookie cutter copies but in the female email form of the Jeremy Corbyn style which went down so badly with the voters. Well I think we have to look really whether it did go down so well so badly with the voters because on the one hand yes. There appears to have been an antipathy towards Jeremy Corbyn personally but when you look at the demographic of the Labor Party vote what you see is actually quite a big enthusiasm if not for Corbin personally then for his policies very left wing very old-fashioned socialist policies of nationalization subsidies all sorts of things that we haven't seen in for decades they were very popular with a generation who were in there in the earliest stages of their youth during the financial crisis. And I think this this battle as it were for the soul of the Labor Party. It's not over yet And we're looking at the moment almost only half of it in terms of the candidates who have declared so far who want to be leader. Because we're looking at center center Yes cure storm to the left. But this the there's a big gap there And we have to ask whether this is whether whether the the old style Blair. It's do they exist anymore. They certainly don't exist very much in the parliamentary party as it was elected elected at the At the last election. But where is somebody. For instance like Yvette Cooper. Where is the where the noise is coming from? Somebody who's been incredibly vocal on the sidelines from his privileged perch in New York David milliband where where people who can influence that wing of the party. We haven't heard from them yet. Does that mean that that's over. The Labor is actually varying not exactly to Corbin awesome but that is sort of more the shape of the future then Blairism or any of them up to it Mary. Well I mean. I saw some comments yesterday which was the first day really. Really of sort of Campaigning on Sunday. Talk shows where the was some comment among sort of professional political pundits. Who said actually this could shape up to be quite a sort of a thoughtful election representing a lot of different currents in the Labor abor party But of course that has its plusses and minuses. We saw during the Tory party leadership. Election there again. You had some very different prince strands and what you've come at. What you've come out with is Boris Johnson and the right as far as Brexit is concerned? But maybe not as far I things consent feather appear to be two enormous jobs here. Alex which I is the the idea of rebuilding shattered party which does does not have a unified core. And secondly won't you have rebuild shattered party. You have to be strong enough to take on the Conservatives and not only beat them but beat them so much that you bring back. All the voters deserted them for the Conservatives in the last election in that is a double task of of huge huge proportions and bring about more than the ones who deserted them because remember Labor already were in a minority so actually doing back even more than their deserted voters says and and in specific places it is a tremendous task and it's always been difficult for Labor in the last few years particularly. There are huge divides in their own. Vote Their their membership is actually overwhelmingly remain But of course in those northern seats they lost Brexit was a problem for them because a lot of Labor members in those seats are are actually much more leave so these people want something very different than how united policy that is so split on. Those different issues is a tremendous challenge. I think mirror some actually quite promising candidates but it will be very interesting to see where it goes at the moment the polls have Kissed her in the lead And I mean you know it will be interesting you see. Of course everything can be shaken up during the campaign. Go and tell me who you are promising. Candidates his Co. your is it possible leader. Well do you think kissed has a certain competence to him actually I think it's interesting to see some younger people from the left of the party. Stepping up people like Clive Lewis I would say just phillips as a slightly more centrist candidate who who is reasonably credible And you know they're all these different voices coming up. Who are quite interesting and it will be a big choice flavor which those they go for Os? I think Angela. Rayner is very promising. Who I think is standing for deputy leader From the kind of soft mid left of the party is like find degrees between centralism. Gobert is that they have Mary would what are your thoughts on on what Alex just said. I mean the mentioning of a storm is seen as the leader at the moment the leading candidate despite the fact that he is called Sir. He is absolutely very very keen to storch stress the fact that he has very humble working class backgrounds his mother was a nurse and he just happens to have done the right thing. Some are suggesting that he's the right leader. But I the four years to Leo Leo few years too late Yes. I think there is some truth in that And I don't think it's just the Sir that his kissed Armas Problem I think think he would be seen by as it were younger. Newer members of the Labor Party who joined because of Corbin He will be seen as the establishment candidate and somebody that they they will not support You know it's been it's been said ever since Labor's loss in in the election that They've got not just this huge task to unite the party. But do they will uniting leader. Actually come from the London establishment. This is the this is what kissed on represents percents. I don't know if you're a woman over forty. Five apparently secure has rather something delicious about in this Christmas dinners. But you know if you're not a AH London metropolitan women over forty five. He might not be your bag but just looking at where the next leading light could come from Alex it when I look at the way that the United Kingdom is at the moment reminds me of France about three or four years ago when the Socialists collapsed and the main political structure just didn't it didn't seem to know what to do and and then suddenly Emmanuel macron comes in with almost a brand new party a brand new voice and a bit of razzle-dazzle to boot they. They sort of tried this in the United Kingdom last year with a I can't even remember change. Could change something lasted about ten minutes. But it was one of those little flag-waving flagwaving harassing come on. Let's have a breaking the mold. Oh we is the United Kingdom so stuck in a moment here that it contacting make space for foot for newness and change that that way. I think there's a tremendous problem with the current setup half the effective two party system which had the Lib Dem's done better? We might not be talking about tea fussy system but we really are now because because they didn't break through and as Fayez Change. UK The Independent group all of these various sorts of incarnations of of trying this kind of mass challenge absolutely kind of founded and just did not take flight tool But there is a problem in that we have a social system which is a is a funny compromise permits anyway and that we have a system that was designed refused to vote for an individual. MP I mean actually policy names weren't even on the ballot paper until the night at the end of the nineteen sixties. You just had to vote for your your local. MP and you have to find out who they were vote for the candidate you like so now. We have quite strong party affiliations. Everything is very whipped. All of that and those names are on the ballot paper and yet we're we're still voting for the individuals so there's a sort of complicated compromise I think going on in terms of what you want what you should vote. And they're sort of how we got a party. She system grafted on to a kind of individual constituency. first-past-the-post system and I think that is bringing up these events contradictions and great difficulties for actually eighty four. Both big parties going forward. I mean you know the Conservatives also have a problem demographically in the future and that they're under fifty The fifties actually the majority labor in most cohorts now which is much more extreme? It used to be so as they're kind of older more brexit voters pulse on and They how are they going to speak to younger. Generation who don't own homes don't have job security don't have pensions and therefore so traditional conservative values. This don't necessarily speak to them and it's going to be for them. I think there's another question about why the UK can't produce contact figure. which is that? We don't have a presidential the system And even though this past election was fought I would say on much. More presidential style lines. The was corbin versus versus says Boris Johnson Nonetheless To campaign in a presidential election where people have direct votes for individuals then an individual candidate can make that sort of mark between parties or different from parties setting themselves above those structures. We don't have that possibility ability.

"labor party" Discussed on KQED Radio

"NPR news. I'm David green. And I'm Rachel Martin much of the recent political turmoil in the United Kingdom has focused on the struggle to come up with a viable plan for leaving the EU. That's been a major stumbling block for Prime Minister, Theresa may and her conservative party. Now, the opposition labor party is facing its own critical moment, seven labour members of parliament broke off from their party on Monday. Robert, shrimp, xlii is the chief UK political commentator for the financial times. And he joins us now. Mr. shrimps, thanks for being here. Come owning. Who are these members of parliament? And why why are they leaving labor? Okay. Well, the first thing says, the none of them will be a name mean anything to anybody outside of the United Kingdom, and many of them are not named the mean anything to people within the United Kingdom, but they are relatively permanent or longstanding members of the labor party. Labour impede people on the right of the labor party who feel for a number of different reasons. But no longer what for. Then partly it is about Brexit. Brexit divide the labor party to though, not an extremely divides, the conservative party Paul about some of the polling antisemitism and bullying. That's been toll. Right. We didn't Jeremy Kobe labor party. But primarily I think it's because they take an extremely left would term which they no longer feel comfortable with any longer feel completely economic policies. They no longer feel comfortable with it security and foreign policies amending longer feel comfortable with the way, it's run. We've got a clip here of Luciana Berger, a member of parliament at a press conference announcing the split, listen here, the leadership has willfully and repeatedly failed to address hatred against Jewish people within its ranks. And it is for these reasons and many more the I have made this decision today. Where is this coming from is this is this a byproduct of the Brexit debate to Brexit? I think it's fundamentally springs from the the very very deep-rooted anti-americanism, which of the. Leadership over the late body, Jeremy Corbyn and the people around him. It says you see America as the great evil in the world. And as a result of which they have always cited with the causes. We'd have been favorable as anti-americanism with spiking America. One of these made them very very hostile to the state of Israel, and very very pro Palestinian about perfectly legitimate mainstream view, of course, but it has seeped, and they have been very very careless in of French launches. They keep to anybody who is anti Israel accepted as the friend by these people. Some of those people are deeply anti semitic, and the culture and language has bled into too much of the mainstream. Labour policy Luciana Berger who you quoted that she had to have police escort worn around our own party conference last year. Because of a threat to not all of these sets from late, but how many different right-wing threats, but I have anti semitism has been tolerated and fostered in wing of late party, which is not in control of that policy. So what difference does it make these seven people? We should note seven out of more than two hundred labor members of parliament. So it's not huge number. So what difference does it make? Well, the question is if it stays at seven, then it wouldn't make much difference at all the issues whether these van golden advanced populists. There's many many other labor and peace who share most of their views most of it lay partying would be just horrified as. As they are about Jeremy Corbyn prime minister, they're just not ready to jump. The question is all the end advance party or that he only policy is Theresa May commenting on this at all. I think I haven't seen a direct comment from Herschel certainly be enjoying it. But it's a problem for her to you because there are conservatives who are just as unhappy what happening in their party. And some of them will be a target for this new breakaway group as well. Robert trims of the financial times of thanks for your insight.

"These MP's a pretty significant figures within the labour party, there's five shadow ministers as cold him minister's, Representative of important offices from the party not in government. And these key figures who will be well known in the labor party. Well, let's hear from one of these defectors. Her name is Luciana Berger. And she says it was the culture of racism within the labor party that drove her to this. I cannot remain in policy. The I have today come to the sickening. Conclusion is institutionally auntie semitic. The leadership has willfully and repeatedly failed to address hatred against Jewish people within its ranks. Now, she's saying that there's racism within the labour party what she referring to from her perspective. It's is allegations. I guess of antisemitism. Luciana Berger herself is Jewish and she has been trolled quite viciously over the years for her religion. She has called repeatedly on the labor party to denounce various claims of antisemitism. It's an allegation that has been thrown at the labor party quite repeatedly over the last number of years. Jeremy Corbyn himself, the leader of the party very much coming from the left, and I guess when he came in. He would have been seen as quite pro Palestine not to say that that's anti semitic. But there were times before he got into the leadership that he invited for example, members of Hezbollah and HAMAs into parliament and a lot of these. Things that happened back. Then there was also a mural this. He refused condemn that was seen as anti semitic. These kinds of events or incidents that he was involved in. He has not condemned them since they've tended to follow him. So it is an allegation that sits very uncomfortably with the party and the party's seen as not having done enough about it and not having condemned antisemitism enough for burger perceived anti semitism was the reason she left the party for others. It was the sense that the labor party had failed to lead on Brexit would is the charge against the labor party in terms of its response to Brexit. Sure. So when the Brexit referendum was being held at the time, the labor party campaigned against Brexit, and they campaigned for voters to vote to remain within the EU. However at the time, the feeling was that their campaign was roll their lackluster, and Jeremy corbin's comments on it were lackluster. So the suspicion has always dogged him that Jeremy Corbyn is not. Fond of Europe, and that he's quite happy for the UK to be out of Europe since the Brexit campaign since the Brexit came in the labor party has been seen as well under. Jeremy Corbyn has been seen as being pretty lackluster. When it comes to any fight back against it. Three Somme in the houses of parliament. He wasn't seeing the taking a tough enough stance against her or indeed or breaks at deal. Many members of his own party in two ding. Interestingly the seven who have stepped away from the party and resigned today have called for a second referendum. Jeremy Corbyn has always step back on that and refused to agree to a second referendum and most labor party supporters would have been anti Brexit. So it was seen as a betrayal to them his stance on brags at over the last number of months and indeed years at this point, the changes today will that have any impact on Brexit? How it's carried out whether there's a another referendum any of that stuff. Listen, no, one has an idea. What's going to happen? Into bragg's, not only these new independent MP's or indeed the labor party Theresa May. And her own party for that matter. We're at a stage that nobody knows despite the fact where what five weeks six weeks away from when Britain is due to leave Europe and due to leave the EU. They have said that they want a second referendum. There is however only seven of them, and there is a possibility they will get more people to join their ranks. And in that case, they may get more people to vote in their favor and against whatever. Theresa May's next proposal ISM whenever the next vote is what will happen now. Nobody knows the world's Orla. Barry speaking to us from London. Thanks. Thanks, Carl this weekend Britain, mourned, one of its most cherished writers..

"That motion will be debated tomorrow. So this house can give verdict on the shell incompetence. Jeremy carbon. He's not next prime minister could be and it's an interesting thing is is that. Alright. If he fails today in this motion, she's been given three day. She comes back on Monday says okay? This is my plan b. And if it's actually nothing different than substance, then the labor party, the opposition labor party say, okay, another vote a no confidence they can get. They can they can do that every week for the next seven weeks. So eventually if she doesn't pull a rabbit out of a hat. She may well be gone in the coming coming weeks or months, and how far left is Jeremy Corbyn for our listeners who aren't familiar with his political positions. In American parlance, you had to be closest to say, thank you back to the last election. A Bernie Sanders something about ilk. Exactly. And of course, this country's gone to ten years about steady people are fed up to the IT. And if you look at the again, it's probably a similar thing in America right now, you look at the the wage and not only the wage, but the wealth gap, you know, the top one percent, I've been raking it in for the past decade and wages have been going. Absolutely nowhere for the ninety nine percent of the worker bees. And they're pretty fed up, and you can smell it out there on the street. They're ready for change here. Tom rivers ABC news in London. Tommy only about thirty seconds left. If they had to vote all over again with the people in the UK vote in favor of Brexit again. You raise an interesting point. If you had a leader that actually would deliver a clean break from Europe. They probably would given the fact that they've been handed a Brexit Bill that really doesn't fit that if you will. That project they might just actually vote again in a second referendum against getting out of Europe. This this this particular plan does not fit the original question that is at the core at the hub of this whole issue. She's come back with a plan that doesn't answer the question. All right.

"Party's director of communications under Tony Blair last. Welcome to the program. What does all this mean in practice? What what does it mean? It's a very good question. Leaders of the main part is now arguing over meaningless oats. And this is absolutely a piece of parliamentary tomfoolery by the leader of the labour party. He hasn't had the courage to put down a motions of no confidence in the government, and that has a constitutional significance that if it was lost by the government would potentially lead to a general election. Instead all his done is put down emotional, no confidence in the prime minister. Which has no constitutions of what's. However, it was simply been excuse for another day of to Jeremy Corbyn. The labour leader saying you'll rubbish and Theresa May saying no, I'm not and he gets his absolutely nowhere. When the really really important issues to be debated in parliament. So what is the point the point is to demonstrate or seek to demonstrate? But I don't think it'll work to rezone supporters that he is keeping the government on the ropes. But of course, he's not doing that at all because as as head it's completely meaningless exercise and a waste of time. And it's a complete absence of leadership from the leader of the of the labor party. And I think people saw through that very very quickly. And, but you know, Jeremy Corbyn, the labour leader is doing the mirror image. If you like what trees amazed to which is delaying delaying delaying the crunch point. And in his case, the crunch point is deciding coming off the fence and deciding whether or not he. He is in favor. Favour Brexit or not whether or not given that he can't provoke a general election throw, no confidence vote in the dozens whether he's going to go to a plan b position for the labor party, which the majority of MP's and his party members want to be another referendum. Exactly, it's it's really complicated situation. What do you think decided to table this motion of no-confidence now instead of say last week when may announced that she was going to postpone that crucial vote on Brexit plant? I think he was coming under such pressure to put forward a meaningful. No confidence vote just to go over it. Again, a meaningful. No Constance would have been a no confidence vote in the government. And he was under such pressure to do that that he felt that he had to budge and he's come up with this sort of. It is ludicrous actually a ludicrous or a hassle house, which is a no confidence motion in the prime minister. Which even if it was passed would have no impact whatsoever. And it won't be passed because we know that the hard line, Brexit tears and the Democratic Unionist Party from northern. Ireland will come back in behind the prime minister, it'll unite shaky coalition temporarily and at the end of the day, we will have moved not one or two fold Kobe seems to be in any case under pressure to push for a further vote of no confidence in the government as a whole that is meaningful word. What do you? What do you think he's going to do that? Eventually when I wish he would because although I think he would lose that vote, and therefore the government would survive that would take the option of a general election off the table, and the labor party has been hiding behind the pretends that they can provoke a general election, and this keeps their supporters happy, whether they leave supporters or or remain supporters, and we know that the labor party, and certainly amongst labour voters are divided just as conservative voters are divided on that and he's trying to keep all wings of the party. If you like together. Behind him. But it's it's it's it's wearing very very thin as of a near thought an inability to take the really difficult decisions. Do you think Jeremy Corbyn will eventually have to become clearer when it comes to his stance regarding bricks unto what should be done in this country..
