Northern Ireland assembly meets after sixth night of unrest
"Edition of the briefing with me. Andrew mueller last night for the sixth consecutive night northern ireland witnessed scenes of the kind of violence likely to prompt considerable agitation in observers with long enough memories. More than fifty. Five police officers are known to have been injured in the last week and considerable damage done to buildings and vehicles. The worst of the most recent disturbances occurred around one of these so-called peace walls which separate nationalist and loyalist communities in west belfast. The northern ireland assembly has been recalled for an emergency session at stormont today on joined with more on this by lord. Peter hain former secretary of state for northern ireland lord as you would know better than most people the good agreement did not end sectarian tension in northern ireland. There has been sporadic tension and violence over the decades since but measured against that scale. How bad is what we're seeing. Now was nothing like as you indicate the level of bombing and assassination and horror at the said. He has also troubles brought to northern ireland. Whistle the terrorism but It is serious and it needs to be addressed not just by northern ireland's leaders who displaying frankly a lack of leadership which is really disturbing but also by trade minister boris johnson and state for northern ireland who've been pretty absent from the scene in northern ireland now full quite a while and especially over this. What's your read of what's behind this because there is always the trap of reading significance which might not exist into what might just be a bunch of board young men looking for trouble. No this is that there are elements of that and they're a variety of other factors but the main problem has arisen over frustration amongst the unionist community the protestant community over the fact that there are checks and controls in for businesses doing trade. With great britain with england scotland or wales across the irish sea northern ireland of course is on an island with the republic of ireland to the cells and also within the united kingdom and within the united kingdom the rest of the united kingdom there are no barriers to trade of any kind between scotland. And or between wales and england for that matter scotland wales but they're on house result of brexit across the irish sea between england scotland and wales to northern ireland for the first time and that is the reason because the type of brexit that boris johnson. The prime minister pursued which was to break any real alignment with the european trade and customs arrangements and to go for at entirely separate of great britain but in order to make sure that the good friday peace process and the stability which has brought since ninety nine hundred was maintained. The irish border had to be kept open. Let's say the border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland to itself as it has been now for decades and has become invisible with all sorts of human activity. Crossing it in their efforts not had the toxic role played a toxic role. Because it's been invisible it did in generations gone by and that's that's also the good if however that's it become the external frontier customs frontier of the european union. Then it could have ignited all those old problems that had beset and an bedeviled northern ireland. So instead what boris johnson agreed to was to keep the border open that men the northern ireland remained in the european union's customs union and it's trading markets but that's Inevitably because the united kingdom was leaving Great britain would be outside those arrangements so they have to be checks across the irish sea between northern ireland and great britain. of course. The prime minister denied this in his normal airy way At the beginning on the unionists and loyalists in particular who some of the most hardline involved feel betrayed. Because he didn't he wasn't straight with them way. Do you save in the causal connection between that dissatisfaction with the post brexit arrangements. And what we've seen in west belfast. Is it possible that there are people who are or were associated with loyalist paramilitarism. Who are leveraging that discontent to cause trouble. Yes there are and they're also criminals amongst them who drug. Traffic is and so on who've presented a police crackdown which has been quite effective in their communities to try and get rid of this drug trafficking problem and bought ignited. Not because of that so much though it's fit into it but also but primarily because suddenly loyalist protestant unionists suddenly found that Country what boris johnson told them. There are actually checks and controls strangling a lot of northern ireland businesses in a mountain of tape and naturally they see that as a break within the united kingdom because which puts northern ireland in a different place from say england scotland or wales and so they feel that their fundamental beliefs in the the union of the united kingdom northern ireland. Being within that is being threatened. And that is what ignites it. There was none of this until that issue suddenly arose around new year because the prime minister frankly say told a lot of porky's on us and didn't level with the unionist community and they suddenly found themselves in this predicament and had created Insecurity and understandable anxiety out of which these other factors criminality usa Vandalism and so on out of which that's fed you mentioned earlier a an absence of leadership both in northern ireland and in the united kingdom what would a constructive response from especially northern irish politicians. At this point look like presumably not like the one We saw her on twitter from arlene foster who went and it is a a term with which you will be familiar. Full water battery Suggesting that the violence will die quote. Take the focus off the real lawbreakers incheon. Fine that's probably not the most helpful into intercession. She could have made at this point. Is it well when you become first minister which is effective northern ireland as she is Although it's an unusual arrangement that she has joins us with the deputy minister. Michelle neil who's a shouldn't fain leader when you reach these positions you've got to speak for the whole of the community promises and president presidents naturally have their own party agendas to follow in their own party members to satisfy in any country in any democratic system. But you're trying to speak for the whole nation and that for the whole nation as well once you assume those positions and what has been disappointing about both of them and especially in recent days. Me aline fosters utterances. She's not adopted that role. She's effective acting as a party politician. A democratic unionist party rather than speaking for the whole of the the the the community across northern ireland and across the religious and political divides that have bedeviled for so many generations. And i think that's the kind of leadership we need. And we have gossips equally across the water London has been virtually silent on northern ireland. Now full rarely ever since David cameron and the conservatives came to power in two thousand ten under make this point on a on a party. Basis is a leave a politician and also it was labor secretary of state for northern ireland. A because it's traditionally been a nonpartisan issue between both the major parties. I make it. Because i'm genuinely an i've being hugely critical of the the absence of of number ten downing street of the prime minister in a way. That's attorney blend. Gordon brown were in vogue. John major's conservative prime minister before them. playing an honest broker role effectively. What they've done is said will not you know the the good friday process the peace settlement that i helped to negotiate in two thousand seven that brought the old enemies to share power together. That that's all done and dusted and therefore we can concentrate on the other pressures of government and that was fatal So we only seen a couple of sentences from the prime minister over the last few days when parts of belfast up in flames and a couple of tweets from the northern ireland secretary of state. Frankly that's not good enough. They should be convening all party. Talks in person to try and resolve these as labor shattered secretary. St louis hague has called for And they should be on the case all the time instead of effectively absence without leave as has been the case over northern ireland now sadly for a number of years lord haein. Thank you as always for joining us. You're listening to the briefing. Here is markle's ailing goffin. With the days of the headlines. Thanks andrew in the serum institute.

These vaccines are safe. They they saved. Many thousands of lives and people should come forward to get that job so we'll make sure very rare side effects are bound to emerge as immunization drives reach millions and billions of people the current course correction clearly represents an abundance of caution on the part of regulators but it may have far reaching effects on the caution shown by people in line for a job so the first signal that there may be a problem caused by the vaccine emerged in late february when doctors in several european countries began now to saying clusters of blood.

I do think there is disagreement on this. There is a lord disagreement on this cycles. But i do think that liberal principles ultimately mean. You're aiming towards without borders now that he's not going to happen in our lifetime. That is a project. Take one hundred years in the meantime do you accept you. Look at the economics right. I mean a case by case sir if you were to look at the economics and find the immigration of particular type at a particular time was significantly noticeably reducing wages especially if they were for the lower paid. Then i think you would have a case now. We have not found over. And i mean a lot of studies have been done into this drawing. Find it at mostly find a tiny move but that's very controversial. And of course is on an is appended by the fact that you get sort of increase productivity and increase jobs by virtue of there being more supply so it doesn't really hold but it could hope there's nothing to prevent that from happening and in those scenarios i think the liberal principle would be you know if if having this freedom of moving of course there as a significant deterioration in the freedoms of those who radio on the other side of the border because of reduced material opportunities.

Fuel fights with bbc civil service etcetera without cummings being feisty a will to step up find somebody else to take that on like at the moment. There's some evidence that might be the case. And you can see that by the fact that you had administers going on good morning. Britain right which is blacklisted. Among basically almost all other journalists by cummings very limited effect. So there's clearly some movement and and you also saw more of an openness to at least at the very least talking to parts of the tory parliamentary party now and there. That doesn't seem like something that a prime minister should be celebrated for but certainly that bunker mentality had re riven downs of one did not only with at war with other government departments. That were a war casually with members of the parliamentary policy. So there's a bit less of a sort of vitriolic attack dog approach towards things but the fundamental mechanics of this have been changed. They still have to celebrate. Brexit and breakfast is about to start hitting us in practical terms rather than thames. It's hits us so far and that's going to happen very very soon. You know it's going to happen in six to five weeks we're going to start seeing the effects of that. That will continue and again. They cannot bring themselves to that. So they're going to have to blame someone else will blame the people. They always blame. The europeans remain as etc. And then there's the bruder problem.

They need debate to stay on coach all because that is how electoral alliances is based. That's the foundations upon which it exists. So there's these really you can see that. They kind of want to try something else that they want to get away from some of the warfare but ultimately those too deep structure wishes on the electoral reliance on brexit in that kinda stuck in that straightjacket.

"Boris. Johnson has sacked his boss. Baby dominic cummings promising afresh stone. As soon as he can get out of self isolation but he won one back in may johnson damaged his reputation and the effectiveness of the lockdown to save cummings from his bono castle snafu. Why let him go now over something that seems a formal trivial and then because it seems that the lebanon vitriol. He was throwing around the cabin. The parliamentary party in number ten itself just became so severe. That things funny ahead of got to say. I'm kind of surprised by that. The lesson that i took from that bone costs with stuff was there is nothing ever happened. That will lead him to get rid of comings. And that must mean these completely reliant on them for his electoral strategy for his political program for any kind of intellectual substance to an administration doesn't seem to have any of it in the first place so i'm not really very confident you want to get rid of companies and wrong about that so clearly. What happened is the the amount of just splattering negative leaking the goes on the amounts are just aggression and attack which. He's always been very very famous for. I mean he was hated by lots of this sort of bricks dettori. Mp's in two thousand sixteen during the referendum campaign that finding when wasn't being directed out liberalism judges and remain isn't bribe was just relentlessly in woods until it was finally being activated against the prime minister of south. Clearly you just reached the point with countless but also is bird about veronese. Like of his mom. Yeah it's been reported that cummings was was ac- spending most of his time in operation moonshot. The question vaccine look as far as you can tell. What's he actually doing every day. That would therefore be sort of lost his departure. Did he have some sort of brilliant projects that will now go to rust and it's very unclear. Exactly what he was doing. The reports from people who are now finding took him in these guys around him was sort of like hostages while he was there in a now throwing off everything that can find to save in before load of it. They'll just saying he wasn't even in the office new for a lot of the time. I mean the thing that i took from that project was ju- member an he was setting up this kind of star trek mission control center in the cabinet office We're gonna have sort of various banks of work you know with him at the starship helm and the point. That really got me on. That was these rolling screens of data that they wanted to have up which basically would share prices or currency markets on that you would have infection rates deaths and death rates the thing. That's amazing about that is. That is not real time information that you need for covid panama. I mean that just doesn't make any sense the information he requires much much slower than so. It spoke to this kind of scifi approach to the issue where he likes to really big. It projects rather than what is actually required to fix it. I'm from that alone. Simply conclude that whatever he was up to maine shall not have been worth much in the first place. Johnson launched his great reset of from isolation with a major gaffe by rubbishing scottish. Devolution in the corey tori. Mp's is fantastic pace by spectators. alex massie. who called him a clear and present danger to the country. Hip reports lead poison whose ignorance callousness and indifference. Promises got a room and the destruction of the united kingdom itself. Is this a good start care right if they can. They wouldn the made him prime minister in the first place they would made him neater of the conservative party. They do not give a damn about union they do not give a damn about scotland. The only extent. I think to which he thinks that he doesn't want scottish independence because no one wants to go down as the prime minister. Who's in charge when scottish independence happen but these. I'm kind of haunted from years. Backer talking to the scottish nationalist. He said that will succeed. When english nationalism becomes fame when that becomes something the english than of in a much more in a much stronger way than they think of that british identity of that has happened and is not just happened in general is having to the conservative party. That was the that lead. Boris johnson deaths. And now you know each sean. He speaks he degrades. The he makes it harder for the union to survive. But we have known that from the very beginning of this just a continuation about triumph. Name me a lot of remains angry on the day last week that cummings had left before carrying the can for the consequences breaks it but do you think anyone will stand up and say sorry guys. This is a disaster. This is not just sort of one of the kind of is not as a bedtime story for romania. During i think there's more chance of ian not swearing for the rest of this show. Then there is happening these guys for them that will always be someone else to blame You know that we didn't brexit fast enough. The e you stopped us making successive brexit. The virus got in the way you know. Probably china virus or something a thought coming out with next year these self-aggrandizing people who have a steady in a concept of humidity. Anointed farraj is upset. The cummings departure presages down on brexit. The no deal ragnarok. The he graves. Do you think it will actually make any difference as idyllic spurred to whether to to whether there's a deal on a you know whether comey's is yeah i mean i think it might have an impact only insofar as johnson won't want to give any credence to the cane coming firearm cabal claim the he is somehow soft on brexit without them That was part of the friction. Why they left. So in some sense he will probably want to be seen to be as hardliners on brexit but I think that's more likely to come. In the form of positioning on spinning up concessions he will claim he extracted from Rather than by pursuing no deal. I do still think he does want deal so Hopefully that is still on track. And i have no reason yet to believe that isn't other than nina. Ogilvy telling schools to stock up on long life food products children. Just in case. There is no deal brexit.

She had ample inspiration to guide her but indira solidified her own voice in India's government when she helps liberate East Pakistan from Pakistan in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, one. This led to the formation of Bangladesh a feat that Indira is still praised for to this day. But in dearest political career also lent itself to shadier moments in nineteen seventy five while she was serving as prime minister she was convicted of interfering with an election in response she placed India under an emergency state suspending elections revoking civil liberties and censoring the press Indira's son even imposed a mass sterilization on Indian men and women to control population growth Indira insisted that she implemented these draconian measures to resolve mass poverty make in more progressive and eliminate internal disturbances. It soon became clear that who fell under that term belonged to endear his opposition but despite her efforts to squash her opponents, she fell from power in nineteen seventy seven when another election was held, the loss was brief though because enduro was re elected as prime minister in nineteen eighty during that term indira garnered more animosity than ever before though she had the hearts of many civilians she criticized. Sikh separatists for their efforts to take job in northern India according to them it was their God given right to rule the land enduro wouldn't have it. The population of PN job contained non Sikhs as well, and she refused to allow their secession. So the Sikh separatists retaliated their armed forces occupied and fortified the Golden Temple, the chief House of worship for Sikhs and their most important pilgrimage site. In response, Indira instituted Operation Blue Star. Its. Objectives were simple to remove leader Jarnail Singh been drily and his separatist followers. So on June third nineteen, eighty-four, a thirty, six hour curfew was imposed on the state of Pun job. All communication and public travel was suspended as Indian security forces attempted to drive the radical militants out of the temple. It's believed that seven hundred Indian soldiers were killed during the operation with over one thousand, five, hundred Sikh militants apprehended, and nearly five hundred casualties on their end. Ultimately, the separatist movement was temporarily silenced as Indira had wanted but the fight had exhausted her she became more reserved and paranoid than ever before constantly worried that her grandchildren would be kidnapped. This sense of impending doom followed her between June and October of nineteen, eighty four in the months leading up to her deaf it seemed she had a sense that the Sikh separatists would eventually get their revenge just one day before her assassination on October thirtieth nineteen eighty-four Indira gave her final speech. Looking out to the crowd with determination the day before her death she spoke the words I am here today I may not be here tomorrow. Of course she had no way of knowing how those words would take on even greater significance. Or maybe she did some claim Indira planned her murder so that her son would immediately replace her but others insist she was simply aware of the very real threat on her life whatever the case the beloved Indira Gandhi remains a key figure of Indian government today.

"If you take a look at the sweep of that, what's his impact you think on the country? While I think impact is partly the justice reforms came in. When he was justice minister, he moved to modernize a lot of the lawn Canada and a lot of we're still living. With I think in a way set the tone and set the the groundwork for the Charter of rights although I'm not sure that he thought the Charter of rights was the best thing for the. Country at the time, he was a parliamentary man and the Charter of rights to some degree takes away the power of parliament but I think the his impact on that was really probably the main thing he was also very reluctant although in the end he did it brought in the war measures act was minister of of the Ministers War Measures Act in nineteen seventy and I think. His his idea of justice in his idea of Kind of humanity in the law was was a very important thing but he he As Peter says when when he came back, he didn't realize that the team news gone from covering things on film to covering it on videotape and you can see it almost immediately and when he reached out. Camping Nola UH in people all around the country right away although. In his defense, she made a big deal about it at the time and she was the president of the Liberal Party and she must have known lesson cleaning to help them. So I'm not sure really how that should have played and anyway that was that he'd She wanted to go to the Senate and he wasn't about to put her in the Senate during. The time the short time that he was Prime Minister Peter you hinted at the idea of public service just briefly what do you think? John, Turner's legacy. We'll be in this country. Well, his legacy shouldn't be that he blew the opportunity of being prime minister for two months During that time he kinda lost everything and and lost the respect of a lot of people and I think as we've tried to point out and dawn's just mentioned in his time as Minister of Justice as a lot of other issues that Turner was a part of that are have helped, make the country the country it is in his latter years it was all about public service and trying to get younger generations to believe in it. You know they call him the Kennedy Canada's Kennedy, and in some ways he was especially in the sixties as was trudeau to to a degree. But he had a relationship with Bobby Kennedy they used to talk. And he was involved with Kennedy in that sixty eight campaign to Bobby Kennedy was running. In fact, he just been down to to see him in the states and help them on a speech that he was writing on. But you know it was to all about public service. So he's consistent throughout his career on trying to push that idea for especially younger Canadians that you know a part of democracy is serving in some fashion doesn't have to be in politics could be in any number of different ways but the you should consider as part of your obligation to the society in which you live.

"That's wrong as clean in by Zo Ginsburg. And now it's time for our second topic so done. What if anything are teachers educators and such supposed to say to their kids to their students about the fact that their prime minister who photo hangs on the classroom wall just got indicted for some serious crimes? Well this is an unprecedented situation. Because it's the first time in in Israel's history that a serving prime minister has indictments pending in the court. None of the previous prime ministers investigated robbing barrack. Sharon Olmert were indicted. Did while still serving in office so the question came up almost immediately after the prime minister was indicted a couple of weeks ago in kindergarten. Teacher named SNOT CA guy posted a video of herself standing at a preschool felt board in front of the official frame photos of the president and prime minister that hanging every classroom in the country. And she says this. This video putting out is for you Mr Benjamin Netanyahu in this educational network a man who was charged with bribery fraud and breach of trust trust cannot serve as a good example for children in my kindergarten. Your picture cannot be on the wall go to court redeem your name. If you are proven innocent welcome come back until then. This picture comes off our wall. And as she speaks guy. Removes the photograph from the board with these satisfying velcro ripping sound as it detaches from the felt in response Minister of Education. Rabbi roffe parrots tweeted. I have serious. Criticisms of the actions of the kindergarten teacher in the video that was published Lucien the media. The Ministry of Education is working to locate her quickly and to summon her for clarifications. The Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and one must behave towards him in a respectful fashion. Even if there is controversy about him we will not accept such behavior in any educational institution. That's a quote from Minister of Education. Parents it's he was criticized in the press and on social media for fomenting public anger at the kindergarten teacher at her guy who was praised by many for her courage. Guy Tendered her resignation the day after she posted her video. By the way. There's no law requiring the pictures of the prime minister or president be posted and on most days of the year. It's fair to say no. No one is discussing these pictures. They just become kind of part of the wallpaper well before the controversy over the kindergarten video faded. Another one kicked up this one over a memo. Oh sent in recent days to some principals in the center of the country setting out limitations on the quote unquote expressions of state employees. Now this memo goes into into extensive detail of what's prohibited bringing examples of officials who have been reprimanded for racist statements or politically related comments. Posted on work-related. What's what's up? Groups are social media or in one case a personal. What's up message to a work holly? According to some of the principles the memo represents an effort to limit discourse in the school cool and is a serious infringement of free speech since it seems to limit not only what they say on school grounds but what they can say outside of school and social media although there is some distinction between between work related social media and other social media. It's a bit. Hazy is also mention of public demonstrations the feeling among principles is that mouths are being shot according to one and some felt that the memo was meant explicitly to limit what they can say about the legal woes of our prime minister. Other teachers suggests that the memo itself be studied in civics class. As as part of a discussion on free speech and a Free Society the Ministry the Ministry of Education responded the memo's simply sets at regulations that apply to all civil servants including teachers cheers and stipulates that an if an educator initiates a political discussion he or she is required to reveal to the students the broad spectrum of political views and positions that irrelevant relevant. So why don't we think how should schools address the fact that the prime minister has just been indicted against the background of deep divisions over. Whether this indictment is justified. Should this be taught. Should this be ignores if we teach it. How should we approach it? I you know I've had kids come back from school and just you know. Be Amazed when we've had huge. You know earthquakes political and security happening across the country. They were not addressed in school. You know it's like you know pretending that they're not going on you know when when when it's on everybody's minds and everyone's talking about it so I'm very much for you know civics and talking about the issues and talking about the current events in schools from the beginning. I've never been a big fan of having the pictures of the president and the prime minister up in kindergarten classroom. You know cultural dissonance. I walked in the first time when I saw one of my kids gun team and I was like what it shouldn't be there in the first place that said I don't necessarily approve of politicization of kindergarten classroom Austrian. By taking the ceremoniously taking the picture ripping it up whatever taking it off the wall saying it doesn't belong there publicly circulating that I don't have an issue with a Teacher being reprimanded and she resigned the same day. She did it so it kind of seemed like she was anyway going to quit. And this was the burning bridges you know making making a statement for it so so You know I draw a line between feeling that yes. I don't mind the government saying that. That was not an appropriate thing for her to do. I'm much more troubled by this whole issue of free expression Russian. And what you're saying you're what's up groups. What you say on your social media you know somehow Coming back to bite you for me. That's a disturbing issue. Less though the whatever discipline our condemnation of the Kindergarten teacher taking down the photo. Do you and done you too. And you have more experience than both of us. In educational situations think that would be just fine for a high school principal to post anything really strong about this either that either that Prime Minister Netanyahu should be forced to resign on the one hand or that the the court system is corrupt. Or like I actually. You have some sympathy with this memo. I sort of feel the problem because I would be upset. I think if the principal of one of my children's High School School were to post something even if it was on the side that I agreed with I would just be thinking of the the kids who don't agree with it and what position that puts them in personal social media platform their personal social media whether or not it's public. I think I mean I. I think that every most everything is what they say around there. SHEBAB dinner table. I I have nothing to say about. The social media accounts can be private. They can be set to friends or they can be public for the whole world to see. I don't think that I'm making some big savings of principles. I haven't worked that out but it makes me really nervous. I think if you're a high school principal you have to be super careful. Also you know in the supermarket what you think. I think you're right on your right here on the difficult place that we have in free speech and talking about different forum in public in society in the classroom and in the school to me. It's very clear. Principal and a teacher should not be expressing their own political views because they have too much influence over young minds who are trying to formulate their own views and like children often just just imitate their parents political positions and adopt their parents political parties. And because they don't think these things stir yet and they haven't kids will do the same thing with principals or teachers they respect or they'll choose the opposite of they don't like the teacher and principal so that the job. There is a job of the educator which is to explain the different positions. Have Children Start to wrestle. These ideas themselves. That's true whether that's that's In elementary school or in high school or wherever. So you're saying it definitely should be taught. It definitely should be taught and additionally should be taught properly now that being said the question where it becomes you know some question of what's what's the proper balance which in protecting free speech and protecting indoctrinates protecting against doctor nation is. This is the example example. You just brought should the principal on his own media speak to express his opinions directly because some of those students will see that too and they may feel the pressure to adopt those position pressure to go against those position. Because it's the principle and I think that's what the mammal if you go into the memo is very disturbing but it's also attempting getting to give guidance to public officials who represent the state in a way that employees of the state in their actions and what they can say so some of the issues that have just haven't been worked out yet and I don't know if the courts of the laws of the best place to figure these things out if you're in a what's up group with other employees. Maybe you can say things if you're in what's up with just your friends. And that's and some people were reprimanded for saying racist or derogatory things and it goes mental is very explicit. You cannot say anything. Negative about someone because of their ethnic background or national identity. Anything like that in public in any situation just think of our politicians. I mean the whole Nissen Ya'll Likud campaign campaign was incredibly anti Arab and blatantly racist ways none of that would stand. They should all be called in to be reprimanded or fired based on this public memo but I I think that's that's where there's a Dane dividing on. I think I agree with you. I think principles you know. I'm not sure every teacher but principal certainly have a certain status in society. We want I want them to have that status in society. They have to be particularly careful. It's a fuzzy line though in a slippery slope especially when you contrast in Israel which is bifurcated between religious education location and supposedly non religious education because the head of the a Sheva was basically the principle is supposed to be some sort of a spiritual guide as well as being the guy who runs the school. So I'm flashing back to the evacuation of the Gaza settlements in whole schools. Were shut down in. The students were organized or encouraged to you know. Go Stop the Armie from From taking the settlers out. So whatever you talk about expression you have to remember that it cuts both ways and you know. Where do you draw the lines? You know that you want you. Want your your educational leaders to teach values. And you want them to serve as an example and in some communities that the blend with politics is very Very difficult sometimes the line and many not all but many of the state religious schools. The kids are being directly indoctrinated politically. They're being taught to settlements of the most important thing in the state and that they should at all. You know look for the tie that they can go help. Support them. On in the state non religious schools is a mixed bag. I think there's some places people have very careful not to be doing that. In other places where they're indoctrinating indoctrinating and their own ideology but but we see that a lot in the religious schools. It comes in different ways. One side playing by the rules in the other side. Not Well it's more fragmented. I remember that in Intel V. There were a lot of complaints from parents about principles indoctrinating their kids to be left. This principle saying you shouldn't serve in the army and and so I think the schools etcetera which I think they also they should be welcome and you should engage with their ideas but yes yes. That's right Eh. Actually much more fragmented. It's not so black and white but but yes. The religious school system is more blatantly indoctrinate than reliance on certain issues on other issues as you know and some indoctrinated overt and some his less conscious. I think the one thing that we can all agree on is that there is no more beautiful sound than velcro ripping off a felt healthy. It's just a wonderful sound. Listen.

"That song is single by those. Oh Ginsburg AK Zohar GINSBURG AKA trust the lady. We'll we'll be listening to Zo Ginsburg over the course of the show in eager anticipation of his show. Next Tuesday December tenth at ten thirty at night at Seventeen Chevra. And now it's time for a first discussion. So Oh allison is the solution to put guns in the Coliseum of winner take all Mono Amano personal runoff elections and see which of the two men survives so they say that necessity is the mother of invention. And if you're looking for proof of that just take a look at all the creative ideas that have been suggested to haul us out of our present political quagmire. President Rivlin had the idea of letting Benjamin Netanyahu become prime minister on indefinite leave of absence while being tried for bribery and breach of trust with against as quote Deputy Prime Minister acting as real prime minister anonymous. Mk's have pitched the idea of offering. Netanyahu carte blanche launch immunity from prosecution in exchange for his resignation fat chance next Likud leaders including speaker of the Knesset. Yuli Edelstein have lately suggested that Netanyahu be allowed to be prime minister for five or six months just enough time for him to annex Jordan Valley after which he'll recuse himself shore and then of course course get inside has proposed lightning primaries and the Likud for Party leadership with a plan of replacing Netanyahu and forming a national unity government all within a week or two also not so likely but of all the failed creative ideas for meeting our present political crisis the one that is attracted the most interest for the longest amount of time. I'm was first proposed a long long month ago by the leader of the Mizraki ultra-orthodox Party. Rei Dairy so his idea hold direct elections for the premiership. Between Netanyahu. Again's this would take place after both parties signed a binding agreement to form a coalition Together. No matter who wins the election they promised US Darius thinking went like this both the Likud and blue and white say day want to form a coalition together but the only thing they disagree on. WHO's going to be prime minister and win? So why not let the people decide if Netanyahu is elected that would undermine the argument on the left that he shouldn't be allowed to serve under indictment because most voters. I don't think it's a problem. Why should the politicians make it a problem after all the law does allow him to serve under indictment? If Ganz's elected that will solve the problem of Netanyahu's Likud Likud will surely replace him as party leader before the next election. It's a win win. Deal right so from the start. The idea was meant to be sort of a one off. Add Hawk solution to our crisis this the next elections would return to the regular parliamentary system. We're used to but excited about dairies. IDEA head of the new right party. Neftali Bennett began immediately. Lobbying for its implementation and still the idea stalled. Lately though the idea has resurfaced in a slightly different form backed by Netanyahu in this proposal well if after any election negotiations failed to produce a coalition. And that's what pretty much has happened. The heads of the biggest parties automatically entered these direct correct mono mono elections sound so much. Oh right miles. Pretty much in which the winner receives an additional twelve members of Knesset the number number being an additional ten percent on top of the already elected one hundred twenty Knesset members who knows how you choose twelve members of Knesset but I think that the winner would just cheuse gift to choose the twelve people queue. You you're exactly with the endorsement of the popular vote and these extra twelve representatives. Whoever they may be the winner should then have no uh-huh problem forming a stable coalition? This proposal was meant to be a permanent change in Israel's election system. Not just an ad hawks fix for our present crisis some some version of this sort of system giving the winner fixed number of additional parliament. Seats has been tried in other places like France for local elections Greece San Marino. Which Mitch I only know? Because of the Eurovision and Sicily Benito Mussolini by the way came to power in Italy in nineteen twenty four under an extreme version of the system. I don't think that's a great argument in favour stable. He was leader for Awhile. So all you have to do see the appeal of a system like this is remember that in a week's week's time we are most likely going to begin. Our Third Knesset election campaign in a year. And if today's polls are TB believed these third elections will produce use the same exact same deadlock face today. So has the time. Come to start thinking out of the box about basic fundamental foundational change in the way we choose our leaders if the old system seems to have ground to a halt. Should we replace it with a new direct election system that will at the very least produce a government any government which seems to be more than we're able to accomplish right now. Well look I think the fear of a third round of elections to me is less terrifying defying than ad hoc solutions that are Jerry rigged in the middle of a pressured situation and particularly I. I think that almost all the solutions that are being proposed right now. Especially from Netanyahu's camp are in more or less obvious ways designed to serve Netanyahu including the one that You know the Motto Amount Popular Road. They think it'll be kind of a celebrity Contest to now is much better known to the public than gone. He has his followers. They I think leading in the polls. I think he'll win that election. And then you know if you give them an extra twelve seats he can form any kind of government that he feels like again. I think it's disingenuous dishonest. I if we go to the direct election suggestion we had direct elections in two elections before that was abolished. The outcome of that was very clear. Are that the large political parties at the time. The Labour Party and Likud lost many many seats and were forced to cobble together. Coalition's with many more small parties and and they never really recovered. That's part of the problem that we have today can be traced back to that earlier so they were up in the thirties and forties after that they were in the teens and twenties twenties. You know this time. They broke the thirty barrier again. But it's not the Labor Party anymore. Was this new thing. That was cobbled together. The blue and white party so I think that turned out to be detrimental and that's why it was abandoned. It didn't serve the big parties and they found their ways to get that law cancelled because people could vote for a small party for something specific. Issuers she works civic leader that was close to their heart and say hey. I'm picking the Prime Minister with my other. My other vote so that didn't serve. Well I think if we want to redesign the Israeli government and and change the definition of what the executive for vis-a-vis the legislature vis-a-vis the judiciary that is worth investigation and there are people who've investigating for years but those are things you should do in moments of calm. That's that's when you have time to think it through. Try to imagine all the implications and started decide. What's best political school? Reform always faces the obstacle that the people in power are the ones who got there because they know how the current system works and how to exploit it to get into power so usually the last people that want to make those kind of large-scale reforms. I will say the last point been going on for a long time. What I heard yesterday on the news all throughout the day was this idea of Netanyahu being prime minister for five or six months and the new spin and again this is spin because every single include person interviewed and all different channels and other stations said the exact same thing sir? All working from from the same page of the same same talking exactly was that Netanyahu will mentor Benny guns for five or six months after they all said because Bennigans and they set fire which in the army as a term where you have someone who everywhere they're everywhere but you know. It's a standard army. Evan overlap for the person send a train. The next person in the army people changing jobs every year six months. So I'm minister internship. That's all us and you could see the reporters who are just tired of reporting warning the same story day after day starting Hugo hello interesting. That's interesting so that that was partly picked up upon because for for the first time over the last couple of days. There have been a few kind of famously leftist reporters slash political slash pundits. Who have said you know what blue blue and white really should consider letting donyo run for the first five months.

"It but like the Senate isn't going to go for it right or like Oh it's all cosmetic and the reason Nancy Pelosi was so hesitant she thinks it's going to backfire electorally and it's just like that the fact that this at least the Ukraine threat of the story began with trump trying to take down biden and I'm just like wow is this the only thing that Ivanka's dad and I agree about is like we really just want Joe Biden out of this race at any cost I think like truly you know not not to really like search for points of similarity here because no but the fact that like this story is about people who have been around in politics along time being called out for like you know helping to secure some legal but questionable favors for the people in your family's is like wow like this this is not an inquiry that popped up when we were all protesting because of your immigration policies which have not changed this is something that has to do with this kind of ongoing corrupt legacy that has not changed one iota in decades right we're a word an actual word it's also just like exposing so much of you know the thing that everybody I think suspects who is a civilian is that our political actors to not have good and pure motives who are you saying the scam is in fact structural is that we put on a hat or Ooh my grocery curious secure I would say and so that is that's definitely concerning to me I don't want to be someone who was always cynical about politicians people get into public life to do good things or whatever but at the same time like is that what you're in it for or are you like you just want to be president like you were trying to have like this is a way to deploy to half power and deploy power and so which is not always about but I do think of something that like you should think about all the time but in moments like these when it's obviously in the interest of the people to have our politics uh-huh held accountable to watch other politicians make political arguments for why that's on an expedient thing to do is a very irritating right the other side effect of this which we talked about a little bit on tour is like the chilling experience of like reading transcripts Rudy Giuliani text messages like like I don't know there's something about like like catching up and seeing some of the documentation that has become public about like these shady dealings with Ukraine and being like wow this is just like this is these are actual the people who are like communicating. I don't know there's like and I don't I don't even say that in terms of like having a humanizing effect but it has that like like the smoking gun that like website from an internet ago which was like we're publishing the you know the actual legal documents or the tour riders or the actual transfer rips from certain things that's kind of how it felt to me and I'm like maybe I'm just like documents nerd but like on a level of seeing where the inquiry is going to go even if it doesn't lead to this horrible president leaving office it's sort of like I am just like both pre second and fascinated can't look away by the internal respondents and documents that are going to come out as a result of the inquiry right I just I just hope that it all matters because the thing that is very true in this presidency but I think that was the place that we were hurtling towards anyway and this presidency is just a symptom of that is that we're really coming to a place where facts don't matter and nobody has shame anymore faxomin matter and bad actors bon doing bad things and nobody is holding them accountable. It's so interesting to watch it's just interesting to me to watch this Giuliani thing happen the president himself being called out on the fact that maybe he is in a quid pro quo situation with Ukraine and then go on camera and perpetuate the in China right just done it somewhere else you know and I'm just like nobody am I the only one who is weirded all of this like N- nothing matters and nobody cares it's just this feeling of feeling overwhelmingly like like that feeling that you have when you're maybe a teenager maybe you're a little younger are and you've been like really taught to trust authority and then you watch people in authority just be complete buffoons and you're like oh no nobody is good and nobody is righteous like what's going on here I am having that feeling all over again it's like do I want to see everyone who's implicated here like bedecked with and whatever absolutely but the thing that I keep thinking about is how this is the kind of stuff the genie that you can't put back in the bottle now everyone is misbehaving and so what is going to stop like even a Democrat from doing from pulling these kinds of antics because the thing with job Dan as much as I you know I would also like to see him not hear a thing that is true is that during the Obama Administration his son was a lobbyist and that's something that we all greed was like fine if we like you know they had like minimum disclosures was that really fine for the time probably not which is why we're dealing with it in this like completely d friend like awful way right now and so I just don't ever want to have this like skepticism for people who politically disagree with me I'm just seeing a lot of breath the behavior of people in power clinging onto their power that's something that doesn't have a political party I do agree with that and at the same time I think about people who make the argument that I'm going to paraphrase that it would be like essentially easier for Democrats if every every Democrat is fell in lockstep behind whoever is in charge of the party and there was no dissent and no argument about the moral right thing to do in the way that all of these never trump people have just fully fallen in line behind and trump and Mitch McConnell who are like you know that's why he can be openly like proposing a quid pro China even as he's under investigation because Ukraine it's like people in his own party we don't care right and I do think that like at least at least for the time being on like a party wide level like there is one party that is like not fully in lockstep and I'm like yeah that's annoying when we're trying to get things done for sure I don't always love it but like at the end of the day I'm like I see that as a benefit I don't I don't WanNa be like affiliated with people who are like we do do do we have to do to prop up the person the head of our party because that's the only way this works all fall in line and maybe that's like a fundamental you know maybe I'm not a team player is what I'm getting oh that's a no for me dog Can I tell you the best part of this entire thing though which I'm always happy when there was a moment of levity like this in that's news for me so notable bad person Rudy Giuliani was paid half a million dollars by Ukrainian American basically like a henchman like his Tade Rudy Giuliani half a million dollars I this is my translation of the news I was like tell me what this man does but I was like henchman the right word here to essentially like the metal and US foreign relations for the president but an guess what the company that paid him was called tell me rod guarantee no saying name screaming why did I invented this like what's also why is my llc nor called fraud guaranteed this is your t trump's reelection slogan really wow let's hope they haven't trademark that because it would be apps this is too good it's to the biggest regret of my life I don't have a back for five hundred thousand dollars signed by fraud guarantee it's too on the nose everything is too on the nose I don't have anything else to say about this except that it's l. moving too slowly for me and I don't appreciate parties in lockstep those are my only takeaways about impeachment at the end of the day is like every everyone's added I still don't appreciate parties in lockstep well here's like one plug that I will make about impeachment is you it's very fascinating you know like a constitutional process that we have and so that's exciting to like learn about but if you want to listen to a podcast about impeachment you should listen to slow-burning season one that is all about the Nixon impeachment almost proceeding basically and the reason that I go back to that is because that's when I realized I was like Oh all of this shit takes way too much time is fast nothing fast so it's like read up about next slow-burn is great like all seasons I was like oh great there's oracle context for this and also instead of freaking out about the news learn about history wow hot tip tip.
"prime minister" Discussed on The Promised Podcast
"That song as Adana Sligo by the band yes la. Hover hip indie bands that play young people or Liturgy that on one foot is why I love Israel all the rest of the commentary. Now let us go and learn Don. What has the prime minister been up to lately as he accepted the mandate to form a new government from President Rivlin Prime Minister Netanyahu displayed a charming flash and what was almost self-deprecation he said thank you Mr President. I accept the task you assign me. I do this with the knowledge that is not the case that I have greater prospects of forming the government but rather let's say my inability is slightly less than member of Knesset glances inability because neither of us will be able to form a government unless we do it together. A unity government is the call the hour that was a quote Netanyahu went on to say that after a hard fought and vituperative election it's time for national reconciliation as he continued speaking however it sounded as though he was either launching his campaign for a third round of elections or preparing already to blame blue and white for the failure to form a unity government enforcing the country to go to the polls again today's meeting with Avigdor Lieberman as we speak to see if they can work out some kind of deal and my sources tell me that behind the scenes. Netanyahu has been working overtime to get Labor to come into a right wing ultra Orthodox government with them to no avail so far but that would allow them to form a government without blue and white after all the first the campaign stump speech a national unity government is needed. Netanyahu said to face three big pressing challenges I challenge to our security the only to Iran's foot SPA and recent adventurism attacking Saudi Arabia international ships and shipping lanes and reviving its nuclear program second challenge to our economy me that the Iranian threat brings on Israel as we will need to devote much more money to defense third. US President Donald Trump's deal of the century that will allow Israel finally to set permanent borders and reach diplomatic agreements with our neighbours presumably including the Palestinians because these challenges are so pressing Netanyahu went on he he seeks a government based on real cooperation and equality with guns and the prime minister said this government will have interesting arrangements of the sort raised referring referring to Rivlin suggestion that we discussed in the first segment in other words at the moment anyway. Netanyahu's signaled that he might be willing to Bartlett away his prime ministerial authority should he be indicted. Felonies wants the long awaited and delayed hearings began yesterday are concluded or at least one could interpret it that way but with Netanyahu one when should expect that the spin machine has already figured out a way to keep Netanyahu in charge until an only if he is convicted in the negotiations in which the Likud is represented by I levine perhaps the last person would choose if the goal was to build trust. Likud insisted that the new unity government would include it in your entire coalition of right-wing and ultra-orthodox Iraq's parties and all of their fifty five seats and that Netanyahu would sir I in the rotation presumably for two or more years whether it will include anybody else besides blue and white or everybody else was not clear guns the head of the party which received the most seats in this election would be a minority figure in the new government now there are reasons to doubt Netanyahu sincerity as already heard and how I frame these issues from one thing back in August. The Prime Minister wrote a column Israel Yoma headlined there will be no unity government government also Iran was already a threat back then the economy was already fragile. The deal of the century is probably already even back from printers for quite a while so the prime minister's ostensible change change of heart due to external circumstances is hard to accept as sincere he also as a well earned reputation for being guided more by expediency than scrupulous honesty. It's the and integrity that said over the past week. Netanyahu has made every appearance genuinely seeking to coax into coalition in the waning hours before Rosh Sunnah he phoned guns and employed in to meet after the holiday to negotiating interfaith he also let it be known that if his efforts to entice blue and white into a national unity coalition Russian fail he will return the Mandate to Rivlin to President Ruslan well before his October twenty third deadline. I tried he will likely say but I could not overcome the recalcitrance of guns and his negativism for heaven's sake. The man went to London just to avoid talking to me at S- initially he said he would return the mandate yesterday but so far he still holding onto it. So what are we think was prime. Minister is now smart to accept a mandate from President Rivlin. What do you think is game is now wow and how do you think guns should respond. Of course he's going to accept the mandate from President Rivlin. I mean this is Bibi Netanyahu. I'm sure on some level that key figured that you know he'll he'll be able to manage a way to put it together just overtaken by events since we've sat down and recorded this the meeting between Netanyahu and Lieberman has ended did with no no result. The meeting took less than an hour. I wonder if they actually ever even spoke one word to each other but you know a lot of people were shaking in their boots that you know maybe the Likud has something on Lieberman they'll find some way to strong arm and back into the right wing block so that didn't happen and the other news which is relevant to this conversation nation is that the speaker of the Knesset Yuli Elstein says that Netanyahu has agreed to take a leave of absence as being temporarily incapacitated if indicted which which could be an opening back to riverland suggestion right right yeah so. I heard that that interview with this morning. That's not really what he said. The headlines are a little bit misleading thing he really said that in certain circumstances he could imagine that it would be proper for a prime minister to accusing Prime Minister. It was all something something that he can he was. He was very careful to make sure it was not something he very much on message. Likud is very tight with their messaging and I think that hedging it so much is to served is so that we can't have a video clip later showing them promising that he would slat assign is also a straight shooter and he he was prevaricating but he was making it clear fear that he was not able to say exactly what headlines ended up quoting him as saying listen. If we got God forbid heaven forbid to to to to a third election Netanyahu would have to work very very hard as he's doing right now to show that he did every single thing possible in his you know his whole bag agam tricks in order to prevent that election he does not want which is kind of would be the common theme and it's been borne out by polling that if there is again heaven I feel like I need to spit spit into something when I say this if there is a third election that the that the electric will a heavily punished Netanyahu and the Likud for dragging them into this mess that they will be the people full that will be blamed and so you know he has no choice but to jump at what appears to be every possible opportunity to have it not happen. I think that Netanyahu doing exactly what a politician in his position would do and should do. He's got a few tracks going on the one hand. He's trying to just exactly like you said to make team as though he is leaving leaving no stone unturned in creating a broad national unity government and what does the national unity government if it doesn't include everyone he argues that is of course ridiculous but that's his argument so so so I have already I have already harnessed my colleagues to the right to in in their willingness to join the national unity government and it's only gones and his people totally be your new Spineta last show so onto a do it in a minute earpieces. Keep so one thing that one thing that Netanyahu is is doing is trying to set up frame the issue so that he cannot be blamed if we go to a third election and the other thing he's trying to do is literally leave no stone unturned earned in negotiations and he is talking to everyone that moves he is contacting people in blue and white who he thinks he can perhaps bribe into leaving their party and to joining a block with him on the the right wing people who have traditionally been right wing. He is speaking to the to the Labor Party. He's trying. He was his goal in meeting with Lieberman. Today was to try to persuade him to join and that is something that I think politician. His position should be doing. That's what he's doing. He's almost certainly going to fail. He doesn't seem to have illusions that he's he's going to succeed but he's fighting the fight. He's doing pressing politics the way that a politician should well except I think we have to step back from it and and realize how much we're all kind of sucked is into how bb tries to frame the issues because there is something else that he could do he could step back and say I want. What's best for the party. I want what's best for the nation and I'm going to let the Likud go ahead and join a government with blue and white and with Avigdor Lieberman without me. I'm going to go fight my personal POL my prosecution and try I to prove my innocence and I will make my return to politics later but as you said Alison he has to be free. You will be forced out of politics if he's not prime minister so what's driving arriving. All of this is his own personal self interest now. He believes that he is the best thing for the country but I think that's MEGLOMANIAC. Meglomania has reached a point where he believes he he is the country could message sheet has an answer for you don which they are repeating over and over again today to. Likud is a democratic party eighty they have democratically elected Benjamin Netanyahu as their head they are not going to allow their political enemies or the other side or Lupita against it it to undermine their democratic process and force them to be head themselves of their democratically elected leaders so you don are anti democracy okay that is Prime Minister Netanyahu now listen to this tire. You live there harvey. How're you leads the Dubai Z. Who Ha- who the code offset I don't I don't know.

"prime minister" Discussed on Boss Files with Poppy Harlow
"Hit of where where we've come in these years that you have been prime minister having gender-balanced cabinet. What has been the biggest learn learning experience for you on this issue is there anywhere where you've said I had these high goals. I thought if I made my cabinet equal men and women we would achieve X, and we haven't like what has been the biggest stumbling block on that. Well, I think there's there's there's two things that I've learned one positive one negative one is how eager men are to be allies to women, but how much uncertainty there is about how to do it or whether it's okay to do it. And I think one of the conversations we're seeing more and more is men stepping up and asking how to be allies and figuring out how to be better allies. And that's something that has been a positive surprise. The challenge I found is having had a broad any more diverse cabinet. We are having challenges around retention now challenges around people who are saying, wow, I came into cabinet minister. But the the context were in the way politics is played is a lot more difficult. It's still the old way of doing things we need to think about how we change the the way the workplace works and ice hours. You have to be there or the hours expectations schedule that work life balance? There's there's a whole number of things that are shifting. And. Just telling you that. Yes. There's pressure on this there. No one has said they're going to leave. We don't change. But there are homosexuals about making the workplace, which quite frankly, parliament or elected office is one of the most grueling jobs that you have the demands are incredible. And it's also a reflection of of this generation men and women who want to be more president present in their kids lives. More have a better quality of life. Be able to better do their jobs. There's a reflection coming of not just bringing in diversity, but actually responding to the changing nature of the workplace because of that diversity. Because of the demands of it, are you worried that if that doesn't change that you will lose some of those few limit female ministers or that you won't be able to continue attracting them. I'm confident we're going to be able to make changes. What about your dad? You said something at the beginning that struck me you said, I don't know if my dad was a feminist former prime minister because of the times. But what did he teach you that you think has made you a feminist and has made you take these actions who taught me about the fundamental rights of every individual. He brought in Canada's charter rights and freedoms says part in trying to our constitution, individual rights and freedoms that are protected and sacrosanct and that frame of respecting and defending people's rights, even if it's politically unpopular, even if it's difficult and challenges the status quo, whether we're talking about LGBT rights or maternal rights or broad range of things, we know I know that Canada has thrived because we are a country that defends people's rights. Let's talk about the metoo movement because it's more than that a moment. This summer you responded to allegations that you inappropriately touched a female reporter eighteen years ago. You said you do not recall that, but you said you felt that you acted not feel that you acted inappropriately. But that you respect the fact that someone else might have experienced it differently. You have since called sexual harassment. Systemic problem has the metoo movement changed how you lead. Absolutely. I think a respecting and leaving room for multiple voices. And multiple experiences is essential in our conversation year. Whether it's the unfounded cases, the get dismissed by police services across across our country or had been dismissed across country or the the disbelief with which a survivor has is treated when she comes forward with her story, we need to start from a place of support and belief and and and move forward in a way that is respectful and. That changes how we engage in our workplaces cages how we lead changes. How we how we treat one another and how we become more aware of the power dynamics inherent and just about any situation. Have you had conversations with with your wife, for example, about this as a leader?.
"prime minister" Discussed on The Science Show
"Hope was the first to host the event way back. And now Scott Morrison, just weeks in the job, and this is how he spoke at the prime minister's prizes of science on Wednesday last. Well, thank you very much. And what am I looking at here? Always great minds all dressed up to the nine. He looked fantastic. It's great to have you here, and I'm pleased to see you getting a nod out. Closeted a wild. I during the experiments on the computers working through all the Mizen things that you do going into your own minds and coming out the other side. And you know the person who must fascinated me about science was captain cook. You, Mark. Why tapping took well, yes. He was an amazing Guida and he's voyages discoveries allege injury. But when you read Cook's journals and you read about him, you discovered that he was actually a scientist, and that's what he should be remembered for more than anything else. An enquiring mind, a mind that wanted to pass on that knowledge, a mind that wanted to explore the boundaries. I don't know if you know this, but James t Kirk from Star Trek. Was actually is not kidding, was modelled on James Cook as scientists you'd go where we haven't been before you dare to imagine the things that others haven't now it's true. I actually do have a science degree. It's true. What I hate to disappoint you is an applied science. Social sciences is an economic geography, but that's it. The is on is what I used to put on the card many, many years ago. And I've always felt like I should have changed it to something else because I never really thought of it in the same way as those of you do here, but I was passionate and I was interested and I did believe, and I did wanna learn, and I did want to know the prime minister, Scott Morrison skirmish did not wear a fluoro- jacket or white coat, but he wasn't character as you heard with that boffin business and was pleased to greet. The main winner of the science prize emerges professor Kurt limbic from the new, the man for whom the earth moved as the papers put it on Thursday, but Kurt had an unlikely beginning in Wollongong New South Wales a family with little money and only a bit of a fluke that got him started back in the fifties? Yes, spent a one gong high school, and that was probably the best thing that happened to me at that point because it was a selective high school. And I think essentially a good. System of education where I suddenly learned lots of things that I hadn't even thought about science. Okay. Yes, it was my introduction to signs, physics was particularly well taught. It was a lot of experiments. It was one class where the girls so you could actually concentrate on the physics. Did you find the goals distracting then how do you expect me on? So. Enjoy their company. And then when you decide to get to the university of New South Wales surveying was your course how come my headmaster didn't have much hope for my future. I think I did reasonably well at school, but he didn't seem to think of us up too much good. And he recommended I should learn a trade or something about my first job was in the port Campbell steelworks I was going to be trained as Mitch, religious, and in those days worked unity. And did you study sit nights? And I've found working in the steelwork environment into blast furnaces UP the at the coalface of taking your samples out doing and how is this? I really didn't see much of a career there. So I was offered a job as a trainee surveyor with a local surveyor in woollen gong. And I did that for a while. And again, I saw no real prospects air. I guess what was happening to me was that I was beginning to see that there was more than live than what I'd been used to. And I was searching for something to get out of a if you like, and I saw advertisements by the New South Wales government's department of civil Lance and main roads and water board calling for young people who wants to be surveyors and they would put him through university,.
