Coronavirus and golf: How the professional tours are affected
"Let me ask you this about the tour and like all this stuff is going because you talked about the guys being on the golf course and. I really don't blame these news. We try to play golf because if they look if I stay away from people doing nothing else then I might as well get at here but like how do you think the tour is going to be affected by all of this there are affected a bunch of one? They still haven't even postponed or canceled events. That scheduled may twenty first the ink at colonial. And you know one of the events that that they're talking about trying to move since they moved. Somebody majors the US Open now where it got moved. Its date is open. So Jack Nicklaus tournament the memorial wants to move out of its slot into where the US Open was but it's still scheduled to go on in. That's the last week of. May which doesn't seem possible to that's going to happen. They hope and help or like the idea that the US Open is saying. Now we're not going to be here. Is somebody else's like that all right? Yeah or tournament like the open championship which isn't scheduled till July is like we out all next year in. May there like an eighty news like Nah. And that's the thing Bo you know man. I'm I'm optimistic. I try to see the silver lining. I tried to look at the good in everything but realistically to think we're going to be playing in June is just it. I don't see it happening. I just don't see us being ready to play golf in six weeks when there are still places that are on complete lockdown. I don't understand how they think that they're going to pull this off now even in my opinion first week of August which is when the PGA championship is supposed to happen. Even that seems to me as a more hopeful than realistic thing. Not only because we don't know where we be as a country as far as where this pandemic virus is by then. We have no idea whether it is going to be a phase two or phase three and the fact that the PGA championship is still scheduled to be held in San Francisco. Yes I if xactly Gulf has never been the first to do anything so to think that golf would be the first sport to come back. Golf is a sport that is more image conscious than the NFL. That I know that sounds crazy but think about this. You are not going to hear the golf as Elliot Nothing. Have you ever heard of a Golfer have you heard of a Golfer getting a DUI other than Tiger Woods? 'cause it was tiger so he's bigger than just the Gulf News but have you ever heard of a PGA tour pro given the Dui. Like you think it ain't happened right exe- so the thought of Gov being the Guinea pig like man. We'll bring all our guys back. Because you know golf will be the easiest thing for social distancing. Yes inside the ropes. It's easy for social distancing Hauer player's GonNa get tournament how litter power. They literally getting from the airplane to hotel. Where we're staying. Where are they going to empty? Who who changing the sheets right and then when you get to the gut like getting a rental car you can rent a car from somebody. I'll be working rental counter and then when you get to the golf course you just pulling out in the Congo and straight to the driving rains. You're going into the locker room who's WHO's opening locker room door. Who's working in you? Go to the bathroom cleaning up. Who changed sort of paper or you won't eat. Who's WHO's GonNa Food? Who's bring the food who stole in the trash out like? Who's doing the dishes like those? And that's not you ain't got to the courts yet now. You get course okay. We're GONNA put this on TV. Well who's filming? You've got to have a camera do. Okay Yeah we got a camera guy but the camera guys not the producer. Oh Yeah. Where's the camera picture on bow to? We need court to go to the trump who's trump who drove the trump who's producer who's directed where those people at Lake everything that goes into a production of a golf broadcast. Ken Be even bigger than Football Basketball Baseball and hockey. Because at least those venues are all a one static place so you could put cameras up in a stadium and field ain't GonNa Change. It doesn't work like that with golf when one week. The golf course looks like this in the next week is completely different. Everything gotta move is a traveling circus so to think that golf would be the one to go. Hey we'll come out. I will do a I. The Gulf was the second to last the shut it down. It was golfing NASCAR so in the long run when Gov comes back there I think of is gonNA come back without fans like I think every other sport will at first and I think golf will do okay in the long run. But I think we're GonNa wait longer than what we think for golf to come back. But and here's my silver lining. This is also where I love. What the Masters did where the Masters said we're coming back in November. The masters is the last thing on the schedule. Movember Ninety two fifteen and again talk about buffer nate. Just out not only did they come back. And we're GONNA do this in November. They also have already said. If you've got a ticket Komo come on in you know other sport has been no other waning. Tried to say only Augusta will be like not only. Are we putting the masses on? We're letting the Patriots into but we won't make that Egg Salad. We're going to make those divisional tea. Sandwiches come gifts on and I think November. Not only is realistic. But I love that. The masters is at least for me. The biggest beacon at the end of this dark tunnel. I tell you this though. Y'All come back I ain't GonNa meet you there right like they say like they just go be somebody out there. That's like now I'm good is somebody's wife. That's like yo you ain't going out on this trip like his eight nine. This ain't the Olympics though. That's what's funny. I remember when Owen down for the Olympics. Zeka you know guys were like I know plenty of dudes whose girlfriends and wives would like if you go. Don't come on you know. He you know he might put us in. The spot and jazz were like. I'm not even going to go I. I'm any worth you know. I'M I won't be happy home really but the masters though let's say right now there's plenty of dudes if that came down at the masters they are going to be like. Yo suitcases right over. She she she she. She want me to call Uber. Or because I'm going to the mass you don't WanNa go. You Ain't gotta go but one of us is going well. That tate is last thing I would ask you because I just thought of this while we were here. Are these golfers paying their caddies out like how I still pay my housekeeper? Even though she's not keeping the House I got the same thing Nancy so most golfers yes are trying to take care of their caddies in some way or form. We have to remember how cat is get paid. Caddies get a weekly paycheck and then you get a percentage of what the Golfer wins. But if the government's not winning anything where it becomes difficult is for. We all know the big super rich dude by all the big name guys like rory no Tiger Dustin Johnson of Brooks Kapka you name it Jordan Speed Rickie Fowler just Thomas Jon Rahm like those dudes of yes. They're going to be taken care of their dude with the guys who have a tough time on rookies. So the guys who came from the korn-ferry tour or the guys that this is only their second or third year on the PGA tour and they made them millions like those they could be struggling a little bit to one of the guys who I'm friends with a WHO's academy and doesn't caddy for a big named guys told me that his guy is sending them a little bit just a little bit every week just to help everybody still got bills and whatnot. So I'm sure that there are some guys that are not in a position to do that so there are probably some caddies that are hurt. But that's the world we live in right now so everybody's anxious to kind of get back to work pay
Netflix's 'Love Is Blind' brings the reality dating show into 2020
"So love is blind the task at hand so it's a dating reality TV show. Our the premise is people at first like D. Don't get to see each other and they get to talk. How does that make love grow? So love is blind. Elo and Vanessa and Nick O'Shea won't stop saying is loved lines and you're like that is not how the scientific concept of that works but I'm going to let you of it and also like this. You can almost hear the pitch meetings for this show. That's like in an age of tinder and and like seeing. Someone's photo before you ever learn anything else about them like this show you know you can hear how they think. This is extremely radical. And I don't know how to tell you this it is kind of radical but we're GONNA get there in the execution of course not nothing's radical and execution Also we are going to talk about how it's not radical it's very. It's like other cultures. Do this but you know so. You have these contestants who are all conventionally attractive people and to be clear actually the knock eventually intractable. They're all hot like I. It took me like three episodes to realize that everyone was hot because I was so focused on another kind of madness about the show that that had not registered for me at because a show like this is radical. Everyone looks a little bit different. But you're like oh everyone's hot and everyone conveniently lives in the same city so you don't like your the parameters are already like narrowed down to what we're doing. Everyone has a If you watch the bachelor or the Bachelorette you know the job. Titles are always like the best part of the show. This also does not disappoint. Everyone is like a content creator or business owner or a regional manager or just like guys one guy's Kyron just says sales referring to myself as a regional manager just like literally could be anywhere and all of these people are like that so the men and the women are in two separate quarters doned up. The show is really literally about the fact that like Heterosexual people are not okay And they need so much help but so men and women are segregated and then they get to like go into these like upholstered pods and then they like they date like through frosted wall basically. Can I pause here for word about the pods? Every time someone says the Word Pot ice cream yes right portable on demand storage is what I think not to give a shout out to someone who is not advertised on our show but but there is a very funny thing which like okay so full disclosure. You know how like Non Reality TV FLUENT. I am but the last reality show I watched was the queer season of. Are you the one and the first thing that I clocked and laughed at which is also like I think a common element in like a lot of the kind of performing competition reality shows. Is this like hilarious and excessive use of neon that is like supposedly responsive to things that are happening on the show so in like are you the one they go into like a booth to be like are you in fact a match and there's like glowing lights and on and on love is blind. It's like you know we see from above the pulsating outlines of the pod and I'm just like this is such a funny. It reminds me of like seeing people using a computer in a movie in the nineties where it took root seeing things that are like vaguely looking SCIENC- because this is how reality TV works like you are you're accurately honing and on the design of confessional space like this always this like weird design thing always gets deployed well and also it's like this kind of visual way of underscoring like the false premise of the show. That's like there's something scienc- at work here. You know what I mean or like. There's some like greater force at play than just like alcohol. Anyway and Vanessa Lachey greater or it's that's big greater force 'em play here. I was very skeptical. I have to tell you like nothing. What have I not watched like nothing? Stresses ME OUT ON TV anymore? It's like sure you want to do immigration fraud. I'm here for it you want to. I don't know like eat your feelings on TV. I'm here for you. WanNa get like plastic surgery. I'm here for it this show though. This is wild. This is truly wild so people start dating and as suspected when you don't have the stimulus of seeing what someone looks like weird barrier between your if you're open to it people get vulnerable and I like I really disoriented me and then and then I put my thinking cap on and I was like. Oh the reason this show feels like great me and the reason I actually love it as this is just like the Hal version of Love Island. You know like Oh. I was raised in a Muslim home. I know exactly what's going on here. dating in a supervised location check. Never seeing each other until you're in a committed relationship. Check GET PARTITION. Getting married within like two to three weeks check. Check drama for your entire family. Did it like everything here is like this is the most a Muslim TV show that has ever existed before. And so the idea that you know like everyone is like. Oh this is so different. So revolutionary and so whatever and it's like no no like people in other cultures like kind of like this and there is a case to be made for. If you say that you are ready to settle down. There are a lot of societal mechanisms to help you get there right but this is wild. I WanNa talk a little bit about the thing you said about how this setup encourages vulnerability because one thing that I just kept thinking about is like you know the noted phenomenon wherein heterosexual men rely on their romantic partner to be their emotional lifeline for everything right. Like I'm not saying this is every heterosexual man but like as a default studies showing flaked almond. I in fact saying not all men but also statistically like men who are married to women are basically like I'm only emotionally close to my wife like that is definitely documented phenomenon. If you were in my office right now you would see lights flashing as a scientific point in my national booth over here. The light is green yes exactly. It's like she exciting science and one thing I was really struck by is like it really felt like a distillation of that phenomenon. Where like every time I heard one of these male contestants say something like oh I just find myself opening up to her. It's like yeah like yes. Of course I'm going to do here. Exactly and the sequence in one of the early episodes where the contestants are gender segregated so the the women live with other women and the men live with other men and they can see each other and hang out. It's not like a complete pod situation and you know they they edit in the scene where the women are talking about like. What do you think the men are doing right? Now as they sit around and talk about their feelings and one of the women goes probably a push up contest or something and then of course they have footage of all like the men's side of the summer camp or whatever and they are doing various feats of strength and not talking about their feelings. And I have to tell you. I have a question for you on the on the men's feelings front about this show so there is a guy with kind of like a scraggly beard is seen in emotional conversation with the men on their side of the camp. Rory yes and you think rory contestant or as the therapist working for the show so happy you bring up rory because this is so relevant to so much about the show because the minute that I started watching it and I started feeling all these feelings that what is the first thing that I do. I start reading about the production because the people who are manipulating me. So you're bringing tears to my. I just love you so much. He's reading about the past the show.

Adam Scott Emerges From Crowded Field to Win Genesis Open
"Adam Scott doesn't seem like he's won like five genesis before they shouldn't. You shouldn't have already been a real winner. It at Riviera explained the whole real winner. Thirty six hole win which I don't remember honestly two thousand five I can't claim to and then they went out and played some sort of modified playoff. Yeah only Chad Campbell. I guess and check Campbell. So did he get the full money for that? He got money and I think you got the trophy. I just don't think he got the official win. Okay it was. It was the Dustin Johnson Pebble Beach Title Okay. the second whole array of this week played barely over par by the way which is maybe a sign of the ball. My finally go too far. We'll we'll talk a little distance on the back end we Obviously broke down the. Usda Distance Report on last week's episode with K v V. But I WANNA get some random thoughts. I think you're chatting before we started here. Tc About Adam. Scott being you know maybe the wilderness that kind of the narrative that was being pushed was you know maybe a bit bit too far. Yeah he's been in the top fifty in the world. Since two thousand he had two solo seconds last year formers and memorial and then won the Ozzy. Pga At the end of the year there. didn't have a great twenty eighteen but solo third at the PGA Championship. I am shocked to see him putting as well as he is Is it don't know if there's anything to it that he put these are the hardest. Greens on tour to PUTT statistically this in pebble and he puts them really well. That's a sign of like nothing matters on these Greens. I don't I don't know what it means but I'm sure that I'm sure you probably feels like nobody's making butts out. Here actually might have an advantage out here. Just frees him up Randy Wise Rev week one of your favorites you. You've talked about more than I've heard you talk about any other golf course. I think it's It's such a nice course I think it starts with the course You know some iconic holes. I mind is Probably number ten which I know we can get into a little bit Eighteen you know everybody can kind of picture that uphill dogleg right with the clubhouse up there. I think you know for me. It's just Just seems to produce such a good tournament year after year after year And I don't think that's an accident when we're talking about the golf course. It's the end of the West Coast swing. I think there's a bit of sadness or melancholy that you know. My favorite part of the years is coming to an end and honestly you know. Mickelson always played well out there so that doesn't hurt But yeah that's I I don't know I think it's just the the whole. Go Sycamore. Trees I I it just really looks good on TV. And I think that for me. That's where it starts with Y enjoy the week so well similar to Augusta in in some way it's always creates a lot of drama in that guy's in groups ahead had these little stretch is a whole where you can get it like ten eleven. You know you've made that turn you. There's a couple of gettable holes and guys can make birdies get up close to that lead and but the leaders back there haven't played the easy holes yet so it kind of creates this ton of excitement and you can't really tell who's in the lead like you can see who's most under par but knowing that there's so many half par holes coming in you don't really know who's some king win this legit. If he stepped up and birdied eighteen he got in at ten Adam. Scott looked like he was wavering. There for a little bit But he ended up surviving. I just like Augusta. I think. That's a great comparison in that. Not only can guys you know. Go Low all of a sudden inclined back into it but there's you know there's some car crashes out there can't get away with any exactly so just that volatility to develop Is it just creates a lot of excitement and captures your attention watching rory get flustered today and just like not be able to find it was. I mean it's jarring I mean the guy's been total control was golf ball for Shelton Neil of course ACCUA For I don't know ten months. At least maybe more than that and just to see him have absolutely nothing. Today was just it. Was it hearken back to win? Almost when Randy was calling for him to be dead before he had officially died. But yeah that's what reveal. Do demand if you don't have it. You're Gone Russell. Henley you'RE GONNA bud.

"The articulating a vision of the relationship between direct democracy indirect mumps in the courts and I very cheered up to see the Supreme Court beginning to do a bit of political Democrats have moved over the last ten days or so I think that they are thinking about their competition with Labor as they all the issue of Brexit and I think that they are Kosei reconstruction this outside because I don't have any inside knowledge of this thinking that they absolutely need to fight election with Jeremy Corbyn still as leader of the Labour Party and that there's been enough movement within both the Parliamentary Party Corbin's office McDonald's official those issues of personnel around them to think that that might be up for grabs in the Short Liberal Democrat we'd have an election is more about Kobe than about Brexit I'm not saying it's more about Kuban than it's about Brexit but I'm saying it's partly about Corbin I suspect as well as about brexit they do not want to fight an election with some alternative Labour leader so they are about to the difficulty that they had in two thousand fifteen and they were squeezed on although that they weren't in a strong position in the opinion polls election started if you'd one back about six weeks doesn't seventeen yeah six weeks or so is there wasn't in a bad position there were certainly people at the beginning of that campaign two thousand seventeen he was elating that the Liberal Democrats would do better in terms of percentage of the vote than Labor would and then what happened over the course of the election is is that a very strong anti-tory dynamic set in to the benefit of the party now I can see where he in which that might happen again because when it really comes to it if there was any chance for those who want to stop brexit happening then the conservatives have to be deprived of their majority and it's still easier to do that in most seats by boating labor is voting for the Nipple Democrats on the other hand I think that the dynamic Labour benefited from a watered down I'm gonNA say she'd say that Labor benefit from in two thousand seventeen was lots people could say I'm voting Labour from our local pay and I'll just turn a blind is the fact that I really don't want Jeremy Corbyn prime minister because it didn't seem any possibility that Jeremy Kuban could be communist that didn't seem like a very agonizing choice but given the two thousand seventeen happen it's not beyond the realm of possibility that Germany called be promised I'm not sure if you like simply splitting your mind in two ways of thinking about it can quite work in the same way in which it did then finally the hope that are being expressed that they will be coordination just tactical voting just leading up to voters to work out what's the best bat of stopping both the Tory majority and Brexit who whatever reason they might be different reasons but that they will be organized guidance in relation to candidates and constituencies I mean if this election coming in six weeks there's no time to arrange that and there's mistrust across the board in British politics between all of the nine players but do you think it could be different this time I'm not saying we'll be different but I think it could well be different as I say when I think that is as much to do with it's to do with anything else because he is in a position where on the one hand it doesn't look like the most likely scenario that he could end up leading the largest party and yet on the other hand because everything certain certain and there's been so much turbulence in the ways in which rotates reacted to things over the last few years it's not out of the bounds and I think the other thing we need about if there is a realistic prospect that Corwin could be prime minister then the two thousand fifteen done we'll also come back into play which is the Labor would need to need to be in some kind of a parliamentary arrangement with the SMP and then then that opens up the Conservatives play in the car that they did in two thousand fifteen which is to say that you in voting Labour are basically voting for the SMP to have too much influence in indicia fairs that worked very well for the Conservatives in two thousand fifteen it didn't work in two thousand seventeen because there wasn't sufficient fear amongst potential voters could appeal to that this could actually happen but it's pretty clear this time that the scenario could happen so the fear factor about some pe- and come back into play okay so each time the door opens I keep thinking that our besuited heroes are gonNA come running back in but he hasn't yet so this I think we should take questions because when he comes back it would be great too not least hear what actually happened we've just been tossing and then a couple of people shouted out things on their phones and we thought we should wait you to come back to tell us what happened so breath custody the quick the main thing to remember is that from the moment the division bell goes it's exactly eight minutes shut the doors on so if any of you have to do it again the important thing is to get to the bottom of the stairs at the entrance the accident submit different portraits but then you've got to jump over the new security procedures that they've set up outside the House of Commons without policeman getting worried about then you've gotta somehow get through made it and having made it all the way I discovered that the first person I noticed walks into my divisional the with John McDonnell who is standing next to which I realized that there wasn't much chance this vote being lost in the yes so both conservative maybe it also mass verging third readings we have and do we have a day thank you before leaving okay thanks rate that we've been so we've done the union sorted we talked about the possibility of whether we're GonNa get twenty fifteen again on twenty seventeen again we will take naps questions I'd like to ask you rory a couple more questions before we take things in New Orleans and it's really about your your own future but also your relationship to British party politics so you're no longer a capital C. concerned give you all presumably in some sense still a small c conservative I spend my answer cases I come from a conservative tradition that broadly speaking believes in in individual rights and limited government prudence at home restraints and broad some respect for tradition small farmers in Cumbria London Sun running for mayor and so in some sense it's a good as I'm a I'm a conservative in that sense I mean I'm not at the same time I'm not really very party political I mean I I was a Labor Party member in my youth and then I am joined the Conservative Party as three months before his election as a conservative MP so I haven't been a member and seven-party very long they threw me out before it reached my tenth year and how given that you did join late you then in parliament and now you had to vote with the whip and it was an issue that caused you problems over the years how constraining did it feel I mean how natural did it feel as a non-party ember to the it's very constraining natural because it's essentially parts of the general problem with our contract with the public she is that on the one hand of course we say to the public look you need your MP to be part of a party and to be whipped otherwise can't guarantee that when you vote for manifesto that manifest is going to be delivered on the other hand of course we also have an idea of the independent MP who votes there Sion's who shows their moral courage votes against the government very very difficult things to bouncer book famous but suspicious of the either of the independent and thinks the parties are quite useful way of organizing people but it is basically very very demoralizing because you lose all sense of autonomy I mean the truth of the matter is that when you ask most MP's than a division lobby what they're voting on they pause and struggle for a moment to work out what it is waiting on because if you understand that my friend Richard Bannon I think voted once against the government in his life and was probably had the conservative whip removed from him get a sense of how rarest I think Mrs Thatcher never voted against the government in her entire career so the idea that there's much point in these MP's really scrutinizing legislation in detail is a little bit misleading and therefore everything we're taught in school about what the point of being an MP in terms of scrutiny on what the the legislature or parliament is seems a bit on when the actual lived reality is that if you're on the Conservative Party almost all the time cermony cobaine you you do what websites until finally before we all Scott Frost got some questions we talked about the strange on the constitution you out of the room we talked about the strains on the union the parties themselves are under deep strain and this is a phenomenon across Europe it's a phenomenon established political parties of the left rights particularly Social Democratic parties but also center left Party in Germany you've seen hidden Franz and yet in the you hey it's the first past the post system that is holding these two parties the two main parties in place and yet it feels like that can't carry on forever and at some point something's gotta give maybe the first part of the post system will give maybe the parties will give this election could test it I mean fundamentally though the deal Oh has united the Conservative Party for now these fundamentally divided parties when and walk is something going to give you sit in the United States to a first century first-past-the-post-system but it's always those parties have always been more diverse than ours what's GonNa give because these bodies cannot carry on like this for ten twenty thirty it's cracking it's obviously cracking it's cracking I because we were always told that the point about the first past the post system was that you had strong majority governments and that clearly isn't the case anymore there hasn't really been the case since two thousand five I think the second thing which is cracking is that these parties have been dragged to their extremes clearly launch because of something very understandable which is the parties wanted to give their members all say in electing their leaders it was a very understandable decision very difficult to argue against if you're a labor MP of course it sounds right that you're going to take the away from Union Block votes and distributed amongst the individual members and of course if you're a conservative it makes sense to think you're going to take it away from smoke-filled rooms McMillan sort of tapping douglas hume on the shoulder towards a world in which all the members is says have the results of course being that this these members have tended to drag the Labor Party to the left and the Conservative Party to the right and the Conservative Party is now I think permanently drag to the right this whole election strategy yeah permanently because this entire dominic coming strategy is predicated on the idea that they lose thirty the seats basically in Scotland London the South West which means they're thirty down before they start going to pick up sixty seats and they're going to try to pick them up in the north east so they're going to try to pick up people who are really speaking different ways of describing voter group but that traditional white working class Labor voces who will have much more conservative views on immigration much conservative views on law and order probably much more conservative views on globalization multiethnic state and you can see this story's coming out of conservative central office that they were targeting people on the basis of used on trump's agenda was

"The other unionist parties my worldly seats to the nationalist so we're going to see an intensifying of the pressure for a referendum in Scotland at the same time I still think that if it ends up even the European Union then that makes an independent Scotland more difficult to realize but in a way that it depends on whether the referendum mythic comes is played out in short term politics or medium-term politics because we know that short-term politics can in the end be the thing that decides it must at least be missile but it's very difficult to see how a Scottish referendums going to come before the brexit issue is resolved fully resolved I'm not suggesting in relation to whether that means canonic future the future economic relationship I meant the resolution of whether we are leaving on kind of one more thing he discussed one more thing about this coming election and if Roy runs back in the third reading was lost we're going to have that's the date so Tennessee where we are in real time eight fifty so we've done a few of these live events in the past and I've said if something really dramatic happened someone needs to shout it out the proposed data's now so if there's an election when rory comes back he can tell us what actually happened in parliament and if he doesn't come back then we know it's a little kicked off we've been speculating because the polls pointing this way but we've been burned once too often the possibility of a conservative majority which is still quite hard to construct but there is clearly hope among the other parties that it could go radically different ways so the two thousand seventeen election two things in a way so one we've touched on is that the unionist case was strengthened the unionist parties and include Labor in that in this context picked up seats from the SMP in Scotland it looks unlikely this time but then in England the other thing that did happen was that to party politics reasserted itself and the way this is the big question for this election will ultimately to potty politics reassert itself in one thousand nine thousand nine hundred and at the moment on the Brexit side the police suggests that the Conservatives have done much better than labor in reasserting themselves as the place to go if you want breaks it to happen the question really is whether on the other side the belief that ultimately if you want to stop the conservative government a Labour vote is your best bad also reasserts itself yeah I think there's something interesting that's happened in the way in which the Liberal.

"Leap have a constitution that is under enormous pressure and is essentially I think we all agree in various ways being abused the union is also probably under greater pressure than it has been in our lifetime do you think this tim is going to be another potential breaking point for the Union I mean there is a view view again the johnsons coming collation is the sacrifice of the union is a price worth paying for conservative hegemony in England. I'm very much doubt that that's Johnson's view about Scotland I think we have to distinguish when it comes to the union between the issues in relation to Northern Ireland and the issues in relation to Scotland because I think that there is a possible like direction of travel within the Conservative Party whereby commitment to the Union including northern island may well weaken through time and I think in retrospect what does become clear is the one sort of overriding unbending commitment that Theresa may made through negotiations of the withdrawal agreement was a commitment to Northern Ireland's place in the Union and at the same time not wishing to have any change at all on the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland anything else that she did even freedom of movement during the transition there was bend in it over those questions she didn't bend a tool she was passionate unit ernest when it came to Northern Ireland I think that there's a direction of travel within the Conservative Party that will move away from that kind of commitment and I think that the agreement that Boris Johnson has negotiated has the the unionists in a very difficult position when they're in a very difficult position because they're being asked to agree to something that clearly violates the spirit at least into the practice the Union keeping Northern Ireland in the customs code in particular but divorced been put into a difficult position because this withdrawal agreement unlike the one to resume negotiate it as a consent for Northern Ireland in it and it's based on a majority and the democratic unionists on themselves indeed the whole unionist community is not united although it is the majority Northern Ireland United About Brexit and it's not united about weeding or prioritizing I should say Northern Ireland's position economically within the United Kingdom over North Island economy so I there's lots more tensions to come in the relationship between the Conservative Party and unionism in Northern Ireland I think the paradox in Scotland I think I've said before is that everything in the short term looks like it strengthens the nationalist case in Scotland but everything in the medium to long-term about it happens weakens it because the whole independent project rests on shared European Union membership rested on Scotland was an independent state to get inside the EU rested on Wrestling Kingdom staying in the European Union we've already seen how much difficulty the euro Shuna currency issues call the national in the two thousand fourteen referendum before they have to start dealing with this single market of the United Kingdom verses the market of the European Union facility of a hard border in Scotland so although that I think that this election that concert is certainly seats to the nationalist in Scotland and indeed.

I think we shouldn't overdo this in doc it's not that everybody who voted remain in two thousand sixteen has not accepted the referendum result there's clearly quite significant number of remind voters who have done the polling on this varies but some of those you can see up to sixty percents saying referendums should be honored then those who say that it shouldn't be down in more like in the twenty twenty five percent let's say so then you've got quite a lot of don't knows now they make things very differently if they could them again but if you ask the question the referendum took place should we accept the result and implement it you can get polling in that area I think the the interesting thing that's happened in terms of the future in a way of loses consent is changing the change of tack that the Liberal Democrats in particular made the last few weeks because I think the interesting thing about Brexit in this respect is that if you go back to the referendum in ways the referendum was away allowed Aleve coalition to express itself in referendum politics it would have been much more difficult for it John in a general election not least because it allowed people who voted labour he wanted to vote for Brexit to vote for brexit without home too conservative I'm one of the difficulties than that we've been in since June two thousand seventeen is is that to resume thinking that she could mobilize consistency back into general election politics turned out to be not correct and lay believers believed that they could vote for the party they would still get brexit and d labels to take boats back from those Labor voters who had lost to UK particularly in two thousand fifteen you general election politics in two thousand seventeen actually then disadvantage leave coalition and you can see the Democrats position when they're not being talking about revoked because asleep been about getting back to a second referendum and hoping that that is the means of defeating the first now gambling this time because the liberal what's the ones who've changed parliamentary with Michigan having this election they gambling this time on a on a general election which the point of view remain is pretty disadvantages because away as you say you only need forty percent ish vote for the Conservative Party on at the same time as we know there are many more leave consistencies in there uh remained constituencies if you go back to two thousand sixteen in McCoy onto a general election map because remained voters more geographically concentrated the need voters are possible that this election fundamentally favors the leave coalition in principle yes in principle because partly because as you know about making any kind of predictions but at the same time is you still going to insert into an election that looks like it's about Brexit all these domestic cashews and so it can still be the case that actually the conservatives can't peel enough of of the Non Tori Lee voters Tacoma Seventy Roy on analysis do you think that remain Britain if this election disadvantages them in the way that it's sort of advantage them in two thousand seventeen and on a forty percent whatever vote sheriff if the Conservative Party get to that we get Johnson's Brexit is remained Britain reconcilable that well I'm going to be very cheeky because I'm very interested in this idea I'm interesting idea of how many people voted remain that we should honor the result of the referendum whether this muses consent how many people in this room who voted remain feel that you should know the results of the referendum this is an entirely representatives that's very encouraging I mean I was assuming that almost no hands would go up I feel a little bit encouraged I'm somebody who voted remained and argued strongly for rain and then felt after the referendum that we had to own them that result the impression I get session leader is literally nobody agrees in the and I'm the only remain who readers for anyway feels channel resort referendum it struck me that this was about thirty percent of the which was interesting seeming is literally almost every I have is in favor of a referendum wants to overturn tournaments illegitimate that I wouldn't how many the room think that if the Conservatives win a big majority that would give a bit more legitimacy divorces deal interesting I took slightly few I look these things are very very odd I mean I don't know really how to think my way through this else I began from a very primitive view which is that we disagree about things and nobody is going to convince me that I was wrong I think that Britain was better off in the European Union that we already had the best deal but the fact was I lost and that the sort of rules and the rules in our society are that we accept the the majority view and it's been a very very interesting experience to discover that some of my most highly intelligent sophisticated friends including some very distinguished political philosophers absolutely determined to reject this outcome I don't know how they think we should resolving disputes society. I don't know how they would want me as a politician to response votes in the future if this is there have you almost feel like saying when people say to me you can never be mayor of London unless you come out immediately for revoke immediately take Lib dem view I it's like saying but do you really want a politician he's not gonNa pay any attention to the way that Jason is just going to say I disagreed so I found this a very complicated process I haven't really the end of it is really toughened I mean part of it is to do with the rules of the game I mean that's the other challenge here which is I mean we're seeing it tonight so there is election in which there is probably more at stake than there has been relatively speaking any election in recent memory because this is an election about two things about he in the country and for the reasons you said the danger of Johnson is the if brexit were done it could become a twenty-seven domestic election again so it's now about two things six people very very frightened of losing this election particularly in parliament and that's what we're seeing tonight we don't know how it's going to play out people trying to tinker with the rules I mean at least potentially tribes with the rules because there's too much stake in this election and that seems to me to be one of the big risks for security consented the future which is what we're actually doing each time we try and get to our decisive electoral outcome is gaming it which makes it much harder to persuade the losers furnace glass there is a problem I mean I'm I'm actually at the moment pretty grateful to be leaving parliament I think the basic setup here is wrong I think if you were looking got it in fifty or one hundred years time it wouldn't make sense I mean there are couple of things that are obviously wrong the first thing is that we don't really have a constitution in the way that other countries the constitution I noticed this first big rebellion was when David Cameron tried to affect the abolish the House of Lords on the basis of a simple majority in the House of Commons that really focus the fact that in any other country constitutional law is different from normal you need some special procedure to do it you conscious had a simple Powell's comments to deepen which is that I really am beginning to think that this is basically a medieval setup parliament the idea is that you guys get a vote once every two years five years and then you have to agree to sub contractual brain too I'm not GonNa say Pretty Patel but in any case somebody somebody in government who then governs for you and then they decide at the end of two or five years that they gonNa let you have another one vote again I mean whereas in fact 'cause you're much more educated much more experienced in many ways so many people in the House of Commons we haven't really got a system going where you're really able to deliberate and consider things in depth and and feed into the Chryssa promptly seventy for me is the most acute constitutional pressure point I think actually that we have just as a country forgotten constitution is and I think that that's true of many members of parliament I think that is true of many of us are citizens before last year's exclude myself from that I think it's taken brexit and what's happened over the last few years I think to make something really clear about our country's politics nowadays is that had a historic constitution and the only way in which it worked was that people had a knowledge about the history of that constitution on indeed his political history on that particularly those in parliament but actually as citizens into this as well acted with some caution with some prudence this in relation to that constitutional history because that's what the Constitution rested upon continue judgment and often invoked in the past actually having quite elections you can see that I think in the middle of the nineteenth century and at some point I think that join me you did have something to do with this but I think it was the the reason for it to happen at some point along the way we lost sight of what our Constitution was and then we've tried to deal since two thousand June two thousand sixteen with a massive constitutional uses with most people walking around in the state of constitutional ignorance and I think that is why we could get to this I regard this absurd situation this afternoon where you have members of parliament signing amendments wanting in the course of an afternoon to change the franchise before an election takes place it's mind boggling for many channel anybody's not follow this literally amendments being put down to give sixteen seventeen year olds with no debate no consideration I should know proper scrutiny today on the eve of nationals people don't want to think about press I mean you could agree that sixteen shoved aside but surely feel this isn't the way to do it to make that kind of decision at plus women I mean that's what I felt about Cameron's attempts to Abolish House of Lords agree disagree about about those budget-conscious for the sake in that particular case for trade with Lib Dem's reduce the number of MP's and he could win more seats in parliament just get rid of the second chamber it's it's mad and the way that the speakers been behaving is be mad in the way that the program missions have been arranged Madam and the whole thing is is so shoddy I mean it's the contempt for APP thing for the monarchy for parliament the parole in the purging it's all part and parcel of general sort of contempt for the Constitution Otley you see often the people are playing fast and loose with it and it's on both sides we notice it when the brakes do the remains have been doing it too but often you have these very grand statement spy merits and demerits but you know the speaker and Jacob rees-mogg and Dominic grieve are all in different ways playing strengths. the constitution while posing as great great defenders the constitution and he's one of the things that we've learned the great risk with it's not unwritten but is uncoated it's nothing is out of bounds that once he starts a politics where people channel that political ambitions through the rules of the game changing the rules of the game this way of doing politics can no longer work and does that mean data for the one thing that we must have is some set of rules that take some of the so the game out of parliamentary politics which means we need a coat a flawed constitution but I'm increasingly d fleet tempted towards that view I was very very cheered up by the Supreme Court the sentence I love most Samat Supreme Court ruling is when the court says it's going to audience but the court says it is not for this court to determine whether or not brexit should happen that decision was made the people but that parliament should have a say in the form in which that brexit should take place is indisputable now it's very rare to get someone Chris That's where we are today it goes back to parliament and it's hard to feel that that judgment has losting resonance in British unless I can somehow be enshrined Bloomington time very eloquently address this question of understand rules respect historical precedent in the nation of Prince. I mean fundamentally the the point is the question of who gods gods themselves theoretically these concentrations exist to protect you against abuse opponents and if if parliament starts playing around with those rules something very odd is going on I suppose the oddity in Britain is that it's.

"Really have swallowed the line it doesn't matter whether you amend the political declaration or not because it doesn't actually matter I find it hard to believe that some of them actually yeah because we're in a way that's the question one of the most remarkable features was that there was unanimity among conservative impede who are still fully conservative and peas on both the second reading and on the timetabling motion that the government got all two hundred and eighty five of them through on both could have held what would it have held I don't know I don't know I think to be fair to the government probably would have been quite difficult remember I'm in the back story to this customs the amendment is of course from the point of view of people who rejected theresa may steal they rejected it on the grounds that it was effectively a customs union so the entire point of this new deal of the different steam viruses injuries may steal was getting rid of the customs union so how'd you amended it to try and some funny fashion to re the customs union and I say this is somebody who's in federal custody I organized Ken Clarke Amendment pushing for customers in a week at she failed by three votes getting it through in the indicative votes it was my attempt to try to get a soft breaks compromise but it is quite clear that this deal is partial deal the main point of it is to try to leave a customs union so how'd you reinserted a customs union is very difficult believe the algae we're going along with that and wasn't reinsert -able for the reasons that Jalen's had it's not in a binding way I'm in heaven saps right and in fact that she was an extraordinary last minute attempt by the whips and various others to get people to sign a letter saying we will agree only to make amendments which are not legally binding on the next parliament as though people were going to feel really good dot signing that document a few foreign elections so it wouldn't have been legally binding but it was as you say is the worst of all worlds sufficiently provocative the but the cheating so in a way we got two explanations what's going on tonight one of which is it would have been hard for the government the other which is that actually the government prefers this anyway because as an electoral strategy so effective and I've been thinking if people can tell us he wrote you don't cummings is playing in the fate of this nation but they're all polarizing some people think that he's a machiavellian genius of people think that he's a monster the person reminds me of his allies to Campbell partly because and people take that view about Campbell to but because Campbell was used to say just at the point where the people inside Westminster even not that close to Westminster think if they have to here the line again they will be physically sick the public of God it and the coming strategy seems to be that he thinks now the public it it's making many people inside political life almost physically sick to see the lengths that have been gone to the line is he tried his damned August yes I think a lot of this has comings and in a sense he he would you would afford had quite a good career as a copywriter this take back control phrase is just one example of extraordinary ability to generate three word phrases I went out for attention chinatown with him when I was the only time she ever spoken to Him we had dim-sum together in Chinatown for this was what I was running for the conservative leadership and he said what you say is you've got to say there are only three things that need to be done get brexit done beat Jeremy Corbyn reunite the country and sure enough short enough sure enough two days later Gotcha job at tweets out thrown three things you gotta do then Jeremy Hunt three things you gotta do and then finally bars three things we've got to do oh great knack that to be able to generate phrases that that every campaign thinks genius yeah and so now doing them in a different order so it's not get br done defeat Jeremy Corbyn reunite.

NPR's who voted for the second reading but voted against the aggressive timetable emotion. If we do get an election tonight and I think can we assume that we all right so we all down that route was that a choice made by the government because they effectively decided that there was no way getting the withdrawal agreement bill through that the seventeen view some of you couldn't be swung round was a decision that regardless of that election was the preferred option do you have a sense how you view my senses it's the latter there was a big concerted attempt to try to convince the government that a lot of people would be prepared to it's on third reading but I think the the calculation seems to have been from Dominic Cummings particularly and in the end number ten they would rather go win election was brexit unresolved than going into election with brexit deal and I think there's potentially a a number of bad and good sounds muddled up in that I'm speculating because I have nothing to do with number ten they didn't really speak to me very much but my sense is I see that there is an anxiety and a guy in my constituency who voted Brexit said this he said that if Boris went to election without Brexit delivered as disappear he would vote for bars if brexit had already been delivered he would feel the Barcelona's job and then he wouldn't vote for bars he drew the analogy with Churchill at the end of the war that he would be very for one purpose and one purpose entity I think the second thing is that allows them to create this narrative of people against parliament and use the fact that somebody like me voted against the promotion as a sign that parliament's obstructing get.

You said what more and i'm telling you the if they could have gotten more. I'm not look. I'm not saying that. Here's what i think you're you're taking this like. I'm saying that this was bad. I'm not saying that it was bad. That's not what i'm saying like. I understand i understand hey yeah also it was great but you know look rory mcilroy and brooks kept in the final group and if if i throw dustin johnson and patrick read in the second last group with can i ask you thomas and like what can i say something dustin johnson. I'd have an opportunity to put himself in. The last group can't not what you asked me. Can he control. That's not what you asked me but he can control that right. That's it's not what you're just catching my crosshairs because i'm sick and tired like this. I can't stand hypothetical when when we have something that's right in front of us and that i think we do in sports all the time instead of taking what happen happen fact data in front of you reality. We always try to you know more something. That's not there or hasn't happened yet when we should you know i just.
"rory it" Discussed on The Golf Podcast
"Yeah. Roy was on fire on sunday rory. There was no way everyone starts at even par. Rory shoots thirteen hundred and beat zander's softly by three shot right. Now zander finished tied for second anyway but i don't like doing hypotheticals. I you have to look at like what would have been and could have been as far as format goes because you wanna you wanna be able to compare it. No this format y- is this format perfect no no here's why here's why you you can't. That's the whole basis of this conversation. This worked so well. It's not going anywhere. It works so well this year. What happens next year matter again. That's hypothetical. You can't deal in hypotheticals but you have to deal in life comes this. Here's the perfect example nascar nascar sprint cup. Is your perfect example right there. Why perfect the perfect example is because that is still one of those things these were you like. Hey who's going to win the big thing at the end you but i don't know it's thirty cars racing but only four guys have a chance in the guy who finishes fifth. He gets the big prize. You'll nah not really. Does anyone really care about that. Nope no one really cares about. Why are you you you losing. What i'm saying. Is what i'm saying is like last last year last year. Tiger woods wins the the the tour championship right and it's it's amazing and no one knows that justin austin rose again. So why are you using last year's an example because this year everyone was talking about how it was ni- the ratings were up ninety ninety percent now compared to last year but compared to two years ago and three years ago how the ratings were up so high but there's a combination of reasons why that could've been what i'm comparing this to. Is it still not perfect like yes. It was good but it was good because justin. Thomas didn't shoot six under the first this day like if justin thomas is on and shoot six hundred first day this is over it is done and if georgia does does something different. They beat alabama but they didn't alabama won the s._e._c. Championship won the national championship in over you can't again. There's no no why you keep you know why they made tweaks to the national championship in the way the deform it because they knew it wasn't perfect what he's hustling since when when what tweet from from from jump like when they went from hey man. We're just gonna do from b._c.'s cohen u._s._a. Today and you know what let's go computer in there the computer or know what to do and then the computer is like no now i need a computer can't watch game made they've made one tweak since alabama's beat georgia and they didn't make it made one tweak yes but there's a combination of things that go into it is what i'm saying right like. It's not okay so let me ask you back in the day. I'm asking okay who won the fedex cup the guy who was supposed to roy mack now who were okay is that debatable. What do you mean is it..
"rory it" Discussed on The Golf Podcast
"The now on the it's mattie and the catty here's berry and michael college. He boxed alongside the catty michael. I am the mattie happy mattie and caddy a wednesday we will we are going to do our best to get this out will not do our best time. We'll be a wednesdays and wednesday mornings late morning early afternoon as we embark on the football season and the non off-season. That is the season golf. I scheduled. It's overweight. What what kind of yeah who wants to take a two week break map but we we come to you on the first wednesday after the fedex cup championship and the pay day and perhaps one of the quietest dominant seasons we've seen out of a player in a long time and laurie mcelroy and it's kind of ironic because there is an argument argument to be made for rory winning player of the year now know brooks wanted. Both of them were one three times like if you let rory's wiens is nothing to sneeze at count gummy through the players championship in there too the only thing the only thing that's difficult i think for rory's three wins is and not to take anything away from the toward championship but especially this year in the condensed schedule. All everyone talked about that was how exhausted they were so you beat twenty nine exhausted dudes regardless of how good they are. Everybody was exhausted right but i'm saying like it's not like y- you were at your peak and everyone else was at their peak in when i talk to rory he was like i'd be lying if i didn't tell you i was popping tylenol inbetween round yeah yeah i mean but again. It's a level playing field. Everyone's like that true. It's not like sale. It's easier to beat. Twenty nine beat up dudes than one hundred fifty. Six beat beat up dudes one guy. Who's a little fresher yeah but that's the thing that's the thing with the format i mean that's the way it goes down. I mean it's it's a limitation type scenario so you know he was your big takeaway from justin thomas starting with the two you know they got lucky. I'll tell you they got lucky because you know i thought we you know we were pretty critical of the format and and most people works didn't understand it but then when when thomas thomas went out thursday and went even and then kept going at low not low three under and was it can't layer shaw flea got tied type yeah so after the first round three way tie for first and then essentially that was gone so the fact that the p._g._a. Tour in the fedex cup standings standings rebel to be nolan void after the first round that was very very fortunate for the tournament because then all the sudden you had an actual tournament. It could have been horrible. I don't man the i'll tell you what the p._g._a. Tour must have like a rainbow painted horseshoe with unicorns on it or something because does how they dodged such a bullet yeah every single time you remember a couple years ago. When paul casey could have one literally could have won the the fedex cup with a third place finish which would have been made him fedex cup champ without one win in the season and like they just dodged that bullet it was crazy but s you're kinda china. Was we understand going. You know what <hes> tiger woods man. That was awesome right. Yeah a who wanna i know yeah now. You know it wasn't tiger though but i can't believe i'm going to say this but this is actually the best format they've had and it was like that because again like you said they they had good fortune shining lean on them because look at this way rory would have won anyway if it all started if everyone would have started at even par. That's again where the tour has unicorn painted poor shoe. Is that if you went oh yeah but if everyone started at tournament of even yet rory would still won by three shut up existence exist this i it drives. I don't know i know it shouldn't drive me crazy. Put it does how lucky the tour keeps getting. What do you mean eh yeah..
