brexit hangs by a thread unless the future of Teresa maze resolved Labour's John McDonnell has claimed the shadow Chancellor says the battle among conservatives attempting to become the new prime minster could completely derail vital talks between the parties over brexit he argues that if someone new comes into the top post any promises that have been made during the talks in recent weeks could be written off in recent days speculation around a leadership contest has been rife among conservative supporters and politicians mrs. may controversially turn to labour in a bid to gain their support for her brexit deal which has been roundly rejected three times by parliament the Tories are deeply divided over her handling of the EU negotiations according to the Daily Mirror mr. MacDonald said the problem they have is that literally in front of us they will fall out so the exercise here is holding themselves together and that is proving impossible the administration is falling apart he added it's so precarious we're dealing with an institution that might not be there in three weeks we're in a position now where we're asking how can we trust them to deliver not just in the short term in the medium term as well mr. MacDonald says there has been no new progress between labour and the Conservatives during their discussions he claims the talks have in fact gone backwards leading to more humiliation for an already battered mrs. may the latest revelation comes as brexit party leader Nigel Farage ramps up more support for his newly formed party during a booming rally in Durham Mr Faraj took swipe after swipe again mr. May whose party is hemorrhaging supporters who flocked to the brexit party due to mrs. Mays handling of the UK's departure of the bloc taking the stage he blasted mrs. May as a dishonest duplicitous and utterly useless prime minister before taking aim at the withdrawal agreement she failed on three occasions to scrape through Parliament in a series of embarrassing meaningful votes Mr Farage called her agreement a surrender document of a nation that has been defeated in war

but Stephen Stephen Edgington on the line now I'm Steve the director of politics UMobile Stephen time to change the Prime Minister it certainly is correct you know it's politician UK YouTube channel by the way yes I'm saying trying to finance the right now yep and who do you see is the best person to take everything well I think the only person that I've working at the moment it's obviously Boris Johnson I think he's got the support of a lot of sort of conservative base and I think that he's got support of a lot of the country the extent mile I think he talks you know proper sense common sense politics and it's what the people of this country need we need someone who's actually speaking up for them rather than sort of remain as we've run the country for the last sort of forty three years well maybe speaking of for you but I'm not sure that he speaks out for the entire country well I've gone around the country and I've spoken to people as part my job and 60-million paper ridiculous well I think go to evidence shows to me that a lot of people around the country really support that his sort of straight talking politics and I think that he's right to do that I'm glad that he speaks his mind and he doesn't really care about the consequences of people in Westminster and sort of BBC presenters who might get very very angry with them you know what he said it's all upset about what he said but he just go straight to public and says what they think so I think that's a brilliant thing and when asked one of the key words that people associate with Boris Johnson is the word buffoon I think it's got the country to be a buffoon is it well I think that's the precision of a large number of the public I'm sure it is and I'm sure a lot of the public think that jeremy corbyn's an anti-semite and a large number the public think that reason is absolutely useless I mean that that's just part of the course of being in politics I think when you have these images of you know Boris taunting it's obviously got this sort of feeling like image that's fine and he's also a very great politician I mean to see some of his statements in the columns it made some absolutely brilliant speech is very very statement statesman like man and I think he could be a great Prime Minister he didn't exactly cover himself in glory as foreign secretary did he I think he did I think you need qualified that one well okay he's certainly not popular with the EU I think that's a good thing personally on the European Union obviously very very happy with threesome a being Prime Minister a lot about the negotiations I think we should have someone standing up for Britain and not continually giving concessions for the European Union I think it's great they don't like him fine but have finally someone who would stand up for our country but the point there being them if they don't like him and they see Theresa May as their best option they're gonna make her we'll check his proposal certain aspects of it certainly they'll view it perhaps more palatable more generously than they might otherwise if they see her as their best option so getting that sort of breaks it that suits them I mean I think this is a good consequence of what's going on to be honest I'm glad that the EU are finally saying look we're happy to have a proper negotiation with the UK and if that means that because they're so terrified of forests on to becoming Prime Minister and they're happy finally talk to us about having a proper trade deal they're not fond of me Stephen let's talk briefly about the timing of this do you think that this is appropriate timing for people to be talking about a potential change of conservative leadership I think it should have happened months ago I think we've got a you know you've got to get on with it if we're going to have a change the leader we've got to do it now and we don't do it now and we've got a split with Teresa maybe because there really isn't enough time logistical e to change the brakes that deal what's going on obviously be got checkers it's going to take a while to replace three scenarios we do it for a leadership challenge you know that could take weeks months in terms of you know the actual process and then that leaves almost no time to negotiate a new breakfast deal so we would be crashing out then which I don't think would be a disaster however I think that we are running out time and I'm not happy with breakfast well we had to emps to a breakfast in the ERG for example they have done as disastrous job in terms of organization I think they've got a lot of egos and I'm really disappointed in that because they could have got with a threesome a a long time ago or at least you know all go to checkers a long time ago but they keep on waiting awaiting waiting and the longer they wait the more likely it is that we're going to get a worse deal with the European Union Stephen do you think that that handling breaks it is something of a poisoned chalice no I don't I think that the fact that we are being handled so the people handling breck say and the UK government are so anti-black said they despise it you know all the civil servant none of them voted brexit we've got to remain a cabinet we've got a remain of Prime Minister and when you have people who do not believe and the main policy in this country of course they're going to make a bad job of it of course they're not going to believe in it now that means they can't deliver it properly if it's British people with what people voted for so I think both sides had huge failures and a British politician you know at least I believe totally failed – you know install the proper Prime Minister and a proper plan for leaving the EU on a Canada style free trade deal and remain is on the other side had perfectly failed to institute something to respect the result the fact of course is that however brexit pans out whatever the result of it is it will never be universally popular will it do you accept that I mean the referendum itself okay yes the levers one but it was close and there's certainly a division in within the House of Commons within the country so whatever happens it will never be universally popular will it my point being is if you are looking to change the Prime Minister are you not better to leave Theresa May where she is and let her drink from that poisoned chalice and then replace it with somebody to deal with the consequences who can then be more of a hero I think it's I think it's time to replace her now though that's a problem because we have a checkers agreement which in my opinion does not respect the result it means that we have to carry on taking laws from the European Union we will be a rule taker rather than a rule maker and I think the checkers is it's basically a disaster this country leave us as a vassal state and essentially we would not be in the European you know or outside the European Union we'd be between so I think there's time to get rid through saying now you know all this stuff you're right you're right in the sense that all this bad stuff through your checkers is on her and as soon as we get rid of her and instigate someone who really believes in it then yes fine the country was doing a better and we'll have a lot better prospects of winning a next general election for the Conservatives but I think it's conjugate of her now while she's going through this checkers proposal I think is total disaster for the UK and if she doesn't replace the checkers proposals and yeah she has to go do you think Stephen that looking at it Michel Barnier said earlier this week that November as a possible date time for a deal was still doable as long as certain prerequisites were met do you think if we change the Prime Minister if we change the the current policy that's on the table we could possibly hold ourselves back in terms of getting a better deal for brexit come March next year I think that there is very possible to get a Canada style free trade deal with the European Union which is what they had on the table a few months ago with Donald Tusk this is what happened to the ERG meeting today look we could have a proper breakfast we could have a counter style free trade deal that would be comprehensive it wouldn't be crashing out the European Union on No Deal it wouldn't be staying in certain parts of the European Union like checkers and it will be the perfect option for the UK so I think there is time to do that still and Theresa may really needs for scrap checkers now and bringing the Canada style free trade deal like Greg Spears have been saying from all along we've talked about the possibility of Boris Johnson taking over the Conservative Party does have a history of maybe electing as its new leader not the most obvious or the the the most obvious candidate so do you really think if there were to be a challenge to Teresa Mays leadership it would be Boris Johnson who ultimately would replace it or there are other people you think might be in contention I remember for a very long time George Osborne was meant to be the next prime minister yeah and I think you're totally right I think that they probably won't be Boris Johnson if you look at the history of conservative party leadership elections there's very much a strong chance for a charismatic young probably Tory MP who was the breakfast here I'm really pleased in the cause you could come out of nowhere and he could storm the party and it you could become Prime Minister I simply have no idea but yeah you're right from history's perspective I don't think Boris Johnson is going to be Prime Minister if we look at previous conservative election right no I hear what you say Stephen thanks for joining us really do appreciate it as Steven Eddington director of politics

Oh Dan you are an incorrigible delinquent at times alright we're going to welcome on Pascal Lamy he is former director-general of the World Trade Organization and former EU trade commissioner welcome to the program you're giving a speech tonight about brexit I think you also giving a speech about climate change and the current situation on brexit now you said this morning on the BBC on the Today program that we made the wrong choice in negotiating withdraw agreement first and then the rest what did you mean well I'm trying to understand why both UK and the EU bit more UK than the EU in this mess it is a mess my conclusion my own interrogation that it was always to be a mess but some thought it wouldn't be some for breakfast would be sort of short surgical deep blog operation that was not to be done has always been and we should have understood that on both sides by the way better at the beginning a long painful on scrambling process right well that was I agree with salami I think the important point was the biggest mistake was made was right at the beginning when the EU and the UK agreed to put the withdrawal process first and separate that out from any kind of future relationship I don't and I spent weekend half ago I spent two hours with mr. Barney and his team talking about how you can unscramble this separately and I made a proposal the point is did you think first of all but did you think it was going to be simple surgical and easy I never said it was going to be simple I don't think it ever was going to be simple but the key question was it could have been a lot easier and I think the main point is that the two elements of those elements together first of all what dictates the way you leave and your future relationship are inextricably linked because often the future relationship dictates what kind of process of departure you have and therefore whether there's issues around money there all day at the same time but to separate them has been an unmitigated disaster because it's meant we never get to the future relationship or let's remember that this very specific interpretation of article 50 was not the EU interpretation it was the British Prime Minister was under formidable pressure from registers who said Bridget is Bridget we have to do it now we have to do it now and in order to do it now let's stop the process negotiate with Robert agreement and then we will see now the we will see is now taking revenge the reason why the thing doesn't work politically in the UK it's not a new problem I mean there's reality there's never been a negotiation between EU and UK the fundamental problem is whether UK can agree with UK on what bracelet is about ie ie how much of regulatory divergence do the British people want in do they want a big divergence do they want a small divergence if it's a big divergence you exit a lot politically and economically and this has a big cost if you exit a little this is a little political but at a much lower cost and this trade-off between how much you exert politically and how much we get economically is not available for the moment because it wasn't really search that was to be determined later all right so later is taking revenge do you agree well I actually is one of those that said we should have settled where we were going to be as the number one priority what we want and this is the point I just made earlier because we haven't sat down and agreed what the future relationship is going to be which by the way dictates what those relationships are across the board with its customs union or whatever then it's been the wrong way around now I have to say quite categorically the problem isn't just I've never been able to agree here the truth is part that is true isn't Parliament itself is not in agreement really the British public because the Parliament is being elected mostly full of people like Vince who just don't want to leave anyway and the reality has been there for a process of blocking this so you know with respect to salami here domestically the public said they wanted to leave and we should have delivered the leave by now on the 29th of March not that has been the disaster I agree I agree that the public decided they wanted to leave with absolutely no clue of what the implications of that would be economically they will hold again and again with salami by the chancellor everybody else it'll be a disaster if you go it'll be economic suicide that jobs will be lost they were old all of that they still voted to leave the idea that somehow they had no idea what was going they didn't believe that and they voted to leave so let's get on with it look look I was the chief of staff in 1985 when we met with Margaret Thatcher and I was there and had a discussion with her whether moving the direction of the internal market was the right thing to do and she said yes of course because integrating markets reducing obstacle to trade removing border is a great thing for us all which it was now if she was right and I think the Tories roughly believe she was right unless I don't understand properly British politics moving the other around is at a cost if moving the single market if integrating these economies if removing the borders were so beneficial going the other way around has a cost how much of a cost how much of a loss depends on how much UK dance to deviate from EU regulation and back to this problem and I agree with you that's the big issue but there's no compromise today and the fact that we've left the future open allows the sort of paranoia on both sides brexit jurors believe they will be cheated and we may not believe they will be cheated that's that's I think well I actually I think it comes down to one element all of these are the debate about what the future relationship should be but the truth is you could get this deal through if the EU and the UK were prepared to agree to the alternative arrangements on the Irish border which allowed you to have no fixed border and the process now these have been worked through they've been proposed but the government's never put them to them I spent at two hours yovanna the other day talking to others they all know that this is where it's going to have to be because the existing backstop does not work in practice it was plucked from Turkey and it does not work all right so the reality is doing that we'll get this agreement through and the rest is then down to about a year an hour's worth of serious negotiation about whether we want a trade deal which with respect I was director German of the World Trade Organization for eight years of my life which has something to do about custom procedures and this notion that exiting the internal market implies no border iron is pie in the sky there's no way you can exit the internal market without a border by the way that is not when did we when did we have the internal market when we removed the borders yeah yeah but we didn't remember how to remove the border when we were outside of the Schengen Agreement and the point it's also worth remembering is that the existing borders you take something like Rotterdam which does all the ex non EU trade coming in including SPS food markets etc they inspect less than 2% and they don't do it at the border they do it well back from the fix port I'm sorry I was over there I went through it with them the reality is technology now means the idea of barriers and voices is gone a total confusion and by the way which also exists on the neighbor side between the internal market and the customs union the customs union Israel tariffs goods the internal market is about regulations now if you want to divert which is what you want to do which is rather than in the end I think I think not much of that will happen in my own view but I may be wrong if you walk to diverge you have to accept that there will be a border because we you have to control things which abide to different regulatory requirement of course but you'd work on the principle of two things first is equivalence the second take for example the agreement and no it's not but you here is respects ample take what New Zealand does with the EU the using is not a member of the EU's not a member of the single market its foodstuffs are not inspected here because why they trust and agree that in New Zealand the inspections that bring their standards right are at the same level all better than that of the eve and they agree that that is done at the point of departure they are not done at the border so the idea of this being a border point really incorrect no no it's not completely incorrect I'm sorry I agree that if you want try to flow as nicely as possible many of customs procedures have to be moved upstream but you still need a border to check that this is the case the border is not a notional process that is about equivalence and agreement not specific border I mean I agree with is that equivalence is not a magic one you only accept equivalence if you trust and if your collective preferences are harmonized I agreed that for instance on beer there is nothing that really says how you produce beer in the opinion so there's been a written bedroom and in Bavaria and then Scotland and if good if beer is good for Scotland is good for Bavaria now that is okay it's not going to be okay that GMO food or about coronate poetry I'm sorry about that we will not accept GMO food if you want to accept if you want to accept if I don't know whether or not but if you want to accept chlorinated poultry or GMO food there will be a bother and cost because the UK says they won't erect a border and doesn't want a hard border the EU has pretty well said the same the World Trade Organization won't be putting up a border will it the border is something you need to protect your consumer your citizens from risk of imports that do not fit with your regulatory purposes take the example our environment for instance we have a relatively high per Environment Protection standards in the opinion if the UK exit and wants to move down there will be controls at the border but environmental goods or even it's not done at the border anything like that is done at the point of departure and the point of a right can I just say it is a very instructive conversation actually so I didn't interrupt but you know mr. Lumm is a public servant right who has headed the World Trade Organization for 8 years actually understands trade law and trade procedures which is why all this simplistic one can't get away with is just trying to say well it's all the fault of Parliament and people like me I'd be I'm completely open and honest about the Liberal Democrats opposition to brexit from day one we're not to simply sitting in any way whatever that what's what mr. Lama has brought out with crystal clarity is that we're not dealing with you know BEC suppress it isn't a minor issue you know you're in know you're out we've got a whole range of Rex adoptions that is the single point that is why Parliament is paralyzed because the brexit is cannot agree amongst them what form of brexit they want that's what we're having these elections that's where in a complete bind all right well let's um let's sort of move further if you like into the elections that are coming up local and European elections is this is it trade that's talked about on the doorsteps with brexit did you notice in all your discussions that you've had with local constituents that this argument that Ian Duncan Smith and Pascale and me are having was that something that people knew about no right we did to two big kind of in-depth features at the weekend about particularly at local elections and the first one was speaking to people in the parts of Greater Manchester that virtually nobody votes up to kind of 80 to 83 percent of people what was really noticeable I think you can sometimes overstate how much local elections were proxy for the national picture this time though it was quite striking that people were talking about brexit on the doorstep they were or certainly in leave areas anyway people are talking about brexit and when we asked people why they weren't voting whereas in previous years they might have just said oh you know there's no point I don't like politicians this time it was I voted in 2016 you know nothing has happened I'm not going to vote again and we had a lot of people saying we're never going to vote again I think you're absolutely right I think the big issue is the distrust in politicians it's that a thing of but I haven't seen anything happen and the problem is locally you have that issue of the pothole that wasn't dealt with or that other problem that you've spotted and you've seen and it's still a problem so you get that general distrust of well nothing happens at a council level nothing's happening at a national level does anyone really listen to me and does anyone really care what I think and I think the stairs he feeds into that as well because councils have been underfunded now for the best well at least have had their budgets reduced over the course of nearly a decade so councils are themselves less able to do the things that they used to be able to do so you know say you vote for a counselor in the council against it and they probably less likely to be able to fix whatever the thing was that you were annoyed about in the first place than they would have been ten years ago and then that's compounded by what's going on in Westminster do you think bricks it's going to happen that's got me I mean I probably changed my mind 24 times in the last hour referendum to place where are you today I'm my my heart is of course not with Bridget but I have to work with my expertise and my godson I think the likelihood Nonnberg zit is no but higher than it was a year ago and a year ago it was higher than the day after the referendum and I think the reason for that is that sort of the reality the problem of out scrambling is slowly back elating whereas a huge simplification and I think Vince Cable was right this what is either in or out people are starting to realize it's more complex than that now of course it leads to a lot of absurdity the fact that UK who voted to leave in June 2016 is now having to vote to elect European parliamentarians a month from now because this is the law and it's the law that UK people as long as you can have the right to vote on it obviously is frankly speaking this is absurd and this notion I must notion that these people will be legitimately elected members even Thomas we vote in a new commission and then they just make absolutely that I'm going to attend thank you very much for coming in

the Midlands in northern England tonight drier in Scotland in the south with a low of six tomorrow scattered showers for most with a high of 19 degrees from Global's newsroom for LBC M nice Aziz this is lvc from global leading britain's conversation the nigel farage show Thank You Donald and good evening everybody well remember there are 10 runners and riders in the race to become the next leader of the Conservative Party and the next prime minister of our country and the campaign is kicking into full gear more launches today and one of the central arguments is the 31st of October why that day we'll remember article 50 expired on March the 29th and our prime minister told us mrs. may 108 times we would leave on that date we didn't then we were told we might leave on the 12th of April we didn't then we were told we'd leave for the 30th of June out of course there was no way that was going to happen so now the 31st of October is beginning to embed itself in people's minds very much the same way as March the 29th did and one of the key dividing lines between these 10 candidates is what are their attitudes to work Ward's whether we absolutely need to leave on that date or not while launching her campaign this morning was Andrea led sermon she feels very strongly about the 31st of October fulfilling that Democratic decision is now urgent and vital it cannot and will not be put off any longer leaving the EU on the 31st of October is for me a hard red line a hard red line and yet mark Harper now you may never have heard of Mark Harper but he is one of the 10 candidates Mark Harper launched his campaign today and profoundly disagreed the bit where I perhaps will make myself not popular with my colleagues is when I say that it is not going to be possible to leave on the 31st of October I would love to I voted against extending article 50 twice but not enough people in Parliament did so so it's a red line or it simply cannot practically be done and the other launch today is the ever eccentric Rory Stewart who has launched his leadership bid from inside a tent in central London and he thinks he's got all the answers let's hear Rory one of the fundamental things that distinguishes my campaign from the other campaigns is I do not believe in promising what we cannot deliver but I do not believe in pretending that you're going to get some new deal out of Europe before the 31st of October I don't believe in pretending that there is something called no deal that you're going to be able to drive through Parliament well there you are no such thing as no deal and no real change to the existing deal and looks to me like Rory Stewart is saying basically 31st of October is too difficult Stewart has spoken for an extraordinary amount of time and he's still going let's let's cross live to Rory Stewart in the competition for who's standing for the title of the greatest clown in this race they're making some competition well I have to say you've got to hand it to Rory Stewart I don't agree with him on policy but he's actually in many ways set alight this campaign he's been going around the country you know turning up outside the tube station embarking and putting out on Twitter come and meet me he's launching from inside a tent that's been used for basically so versatile virtually circus acts over the years and he's making it fun he's making it entertaining he's catching the mood on social media he's doing I think in many ways a remarkable job with his campaign but the 31st of October basically half the candidates are saying we absolutely must leave on that date Deal or No Deal and the other half are saying it just isn't going to be possible or we're gonna have to consider extending further I want to ask you how important do you think this date of the 31st of October to leave the European Union is and if you think one night it actually come on relax a bit if it takes a few more months past that date it doesn't really matter call oh three four five six oh six oh nine seven three or maybe you think for another big set date to pass without us leaving would be a second betrayal text two eight four eight five oh and tell me how important do you think this is for the future of the Conservative Party that we leave on that day please tweets using hash far out and lbc at OBC abacus Facebookers watching us can comment there – Keith M Romsey is a new caller good evening Keith yeah I do not do your ID like I'm doing alright now we got some very divergent views here led some it's a hard red line mark Harper it ain't gonna happen how much does it matter well listen Lori's Rory still smart with his IBM than in India Saturday though he spilled snow in cocaine the way he carried on jump jump jumping around Keith that may be I think to say that two candidates to be on X prime minister are still on drugs is probably unfair I know that I'm just my I'm just making it a very luck like hi alright alright but look at the facts when they all started off I put themselves now I've got a sign near you then I started doing all Marisa all my research now the only research I could get was through social media so this is our spider off her foot to myself at first I thought I know how do I leave the EU in the fall you know what after three normal research I'm watching you Nigel watching you over in the EU and how proud I am of you personally getting over there and sorts and more out because it needs someone like you but there's only three people there's only three people that I can see that excite Felice but I've west there was a good card mmm being as a past history I thought you know what this woman knows what she's talking about and then they said there's only three people that can get us out here you and that's you because you're you are on the platform not getting mainstream media too much of it but you are getting there with it the brexit pie right obviously we've got robbed until Brook and crime more which Keith and and Robyn's hilber at least English Democrats he's taking a court action to say that the extension of article 50 was illegal for those who don't know but Keith realistically the next prime minister in less than 50 days will come from this list of 10 you clear are a brexit ear if we don't leave on October the 31st we've got to write okay I mean we've got to leave and what and what if we don't the mainstream media to start looking at what's going on well people do people do step outside and you can go on you can go on social media Keith but as with many things you can find some great information there and some rubbish stuff as well right Keith says we have to leave on that day Paul Ince abandoned just down the road from him is another new caller good evening Paul good I'm fine thank you so so I'm saying we're gonna leave on that date some say we're probably not going to how much does it actually matter Paul I think it matters immensely well your necklace 13 and all these left wing whiny people going there on about democracy and yet they're funding democracy by with using delete and I think what they should do is actually start stacking these MPs that I've actually gone against their constituents I think it's outrageous that they've been refused to carry out and instruction from welcome speechless Paul but Paul they're going to tell people like you you didn't really understand the implications of what you voted for and and and and Paul it could do great economic damage that's what they'll tell you absolutely rubbish sorry I was listening to Jeremy Vine today and and there are people on about their ten year old children are living in fear a breakfast how bad are the BBC's when they get when they're peddling this rubbish I just can't believe what's going on so if we don't leave on that date or what does it mean for the Conservative Party well unfortunately I think that conservatives now are fighting you and there's the sense of ROI is going to get is gonna get slit people going to go with you I mean I the only time I've ever voted in 47 years and that was to get the hell out of Europe that's the only time I've ever vote without that that was your first your first vote of your life yeah that was the only time I ever thought that it's worth voting for was to get the hell out of you because I'm in a transport industry and all the Europeans that have swarmed over here they've held down wages in my industry you know they've taken jobs all over the place and I and I see it every day I come across it every day and also perhaps some unfair competition in that industry yeah absolutely I mean you see these these felons always on the road you know I know you know it's just absolutely I mean they're not paying any taxes over there they're destroying our roads you don't even know what weight they are and different safety standards that yeah I know well maybe they do some random night checks on the m20 some of the figures about lorries from parts of the EU and safety are pretty shocking Paul thank you for your call thank you for your passion I mean let me say this that you know you've got candidates like Boris Johnson Dominick Rob esta McVeigh you know they are bigging up the 31st of October if one of them was to win and then we didn't leave on the 31st of October I think that would be viewed by many millions of conservative voters as being a second betrayal and I think it would far outweigh any short-term economic shocks that we might have if we're not properly prepared I think for the Conservative Party here on in it would be a catastrophe and yet already there are many candidates saying we cannot leave on that date or we should consider delaying Michael Gove saying that Jeremy how this sort of perhaps thing Rory Stuart pretty clearly saying we don't have to leave on that date I tell you what if they don't I believe they're in very real trouble tell me what do you think how much does it

May decided to lift it and to extend the legislation and Andrea Letson is arguing that our legislation now says we should leave we will leave on the 31st of October and she says a tough Prime Minister can make sure that happens yeah I don't remember it exactly the same like a noob you've obviously got a much better feel for the politics and the big gala tease of it and I have but I did seem to to remember the feeling that it was a hopeless case and that the speaker was going to allow a amendment to prevent the No Deal happening on the 29th of March as I recall well yeah and Parliament did vote on that but that vote of itself that vote of itself the one thing the speaker can't do is is is to make the government change existing legislation that's something must be absolutely cannot do now there could be you know a human cry in a crisis I mean carry you know if Rory Stewart is right and if it is impractical and impossible to leave on the 31st of October and you know we've got a new European Commission coming in and all sorts of distractions in Brussels but don't you think the real thing that's been broken here is trust yeah I mean I suppose that's my point it's you know it's maybe not I mean I may be wrong and the analysis but I think it's unfair that Teresa may having promised so many times it was it boils down to whether she was allowed to or not if she could have then said okay we're gonna go out well whatever happens then yes she's working the class but if she was prevented then I think it would be fair to say that she hasn't broken the trust I think well I think the problem is as as the documentary on on Europe as a couple of weeks ago showed it was the remainders who were the problem and who discovered scold the saboteurs could we agree on the word because that's whatever else do wasn't it I mean you could accuse people of all sorts of things but I think it you know the whatever the results of the referendum the Democratic result was that we would leave and we should have left I think to try and prevent that happening was probably not you know not whatsoever it appropriate and Gary thank you I'm gonna move on Angela says apart from the voters delays are destroying business well they're certainly slowing up business investment because we want their business wants this done and dusted Rory would make a great leader for the Lib Dems says Chris in Darlington and Colin on Facebook says how many more dates will be given if we don't leave on the 31st there are more numbers on my lottery ticket well or a child's advent calendar was another suggestion I heard let's go to Robin I hate with he was faking to before good evening Robin hello Nigel the question I think was will we believe in on the 31st and I honestly don't think we will because I think Parliament's have no idea what leaving means you know I mean they all want something differently even means something different to all of them and so in 2016 give it in Nuuk it now you didn't break it so you've changed you mean so why is everyone online that you don't think I've changed my chin too much Robin do you well why didn't you just go back to you kids now we've got the Tories you know they let their split no what does it mean to you Nigel it is very simply Robin very very simply that we're an independent self-governing nation end off so does that mean by the way I bought it to leave I hope we can have deals of all kinds with countries all over the world all sorts of stuff we can do and actually leaving on WTO terms or as Andrea Nets and colleagues they a managed exit there will be deals between us on aviation etc many many other things my probably Robin for me Robin the problem will be this what our laws effectively be set somewhere else over which we will have no say would it go on costing us a fortune and ultimately could a foreign court judge over matters that affect our lives that's what brexit means to me well can I ask you another question Nigel Wright the concert is the breath of Tears I don't think any of them can agree what a brexit means none of them know what leave and maybe also different things now I must say you said they're about our loss I could say I bought Italy and I want to leave but at all of what I don't wanna leave word across any one a job and I didn't trust this government to make our laws look at the message the medes is their absolute shambles well Robin if one of them could say Oh Nigel what actually leaving me does it does it mean nationalize Robin Robin it means we could do whatever we like because we would be in charge and we would make those decisions leaving means freedom to make her own decisions and we might make good decisions and we might make bad decisions but the people making those decisions would be directly accountable to us that's the Democratic argument for exit well I think a lot of people who actually boarded leave that I've put off with what the scene now I think here was another referendum I think most people are just there you know what to stay in because we don't want to poop but then is it anymore well actually what I'm seeing Robin with brexit fatigue and that's what you're identifying what I'm actually seeing more with brexit fatigue is people saying to hell with it let's just get out even if there are some short-term bumps in the road let's get out and move on and having the truth of it is if you look at the recent elections and polls you know it's still it's still 52 48 believe and not that much has actually changed Robin thank you very much Boris will win I get by text Boris will delay Boris will be forced out and the next Tory leader will continue delaying until the Tory party is extinct says Archie well I have to say I think it is for the Conservative Party a very very serious issue I am staggered that nearly half the candidates to be the next prime minister are prepared to contemplate not leaving on the 31st of October I think for them and for trust in politics that would be a complete and utter disaster you're listening to the niger para shave here on LBC it's now 6:30 and time for the news release the rosies the International

the nigel farage show live from brussels only on NBC the battle to be the next p.m. is on and half the candidates standing say we got to leave on the 31st of october the other half say well that's either impossible or we may have to think about a further delay but another aspect of this is you know mrs. may's deal as they call it which isn't mrs. may's deal it's monsieur barney is treaty and that is what it is but how interesting that mark Harper tells us he's going to go back to Brussels and open a real transparent discussion to change the backstop Michael Gove is gonna go back to Brussels and negotiate changes to the backstop Matt Hancock is going to seek a time limit to the backstop Jeremy Hunt says there is the prospect of doing a better deal well I'm sorry folks but Michel Barnea has already said that a new prime minister will not change the problem every brexit he insisted conservative hopefuls looking to replace to resume will not be able to reshape the withdrawal agreement listen to him the program is still there and he found any one of the candidate older in this race I will ask him what is your solution to solve the problem create by the brexit you want to deliver the bracket okay tell me what is your solution and of course there is no solution because they've got their treaty they're not gonna reopen it what they may do is change the wording of the political declaration that's the next bit looking ahead for the next few years which of course is not legally enforceable so one way and another I think many of these candidates to be the next Tory leader and Prime Minister are making exactly the same mistakes that mrs. May made and we're just if one of those was to win we're just going nowhere with this we have to surely we have to leave don't we all the 31st of October I don't know you tell me James is calling from Malta and there's a new caller good evening James good very good to hear it now tell me how much how much does this date actually matter in your opinion I'm now 21 I hope this when I was living in the UK to remain at personal reasons of my own but how important it is the democracy be upheld by the so called people who are supposed to be our leaders and if I'm on it I see these new Conservative MPs that want to be running the country and running the party saying these are our red lines these are James James James can you speak a little bit more closely into the microphone please yes so we we hear these red lines from people like we had three Simoes joins you know from these conservative MPs that want to run the country and run the party and what's to say that they won't do exactly what Theresa made it and just cross out all those red lines in one last sailing account to make break that's what happen again the Queen's young lady yeah to make this work is leaving on the WTO legs it it's as simple as that and that is because predominantly you think the main argument is that it's about democracy yeah completely about this and the one thing he said to me is he said that the shambles that have been caused not just by the Conservative Party but by Parliament in total trying to block right there every opportunity possible and both the country to have absolutely no faith if you want to hear about a no-confidence though the country has no confidence in Parliament I think you're right James and there's a big division here between the people and power evening Nigel maybe the candidates should all promise that if they've not taken us out with the 31st of October they will stand down and call a general election if they want our trust back that is what should happen says Andy in Portsmouth well Andy it may well be that if if one of the people who's saying we must leave on October the 31st who knows it could be Boris you know they could face a situation where Parliament stops them leaving on WTO and maybe in those circumstances a general election would be the only way out incredible how these Tories cheerfully say we cannot possibly leave on October the 31st the date was only set last month at least I guess they're being honest well honest in a sense I guess but I you know honestly there's breakdown of trust between politics and the people it's getting worse Chris is calling from Birmingham and is another new corner good evening Chris fine I don't welcome to the show so does this date matter or what extending it for a few more weeks or months if it meant a better deal not really massa well I fundamentally think that is absolutely critical that we try to get the best deal we can one of the things I found in the least campaign one of the things that was most spoken about were the free trade agreement and I was in Norway thoughts I know you yourself mentioned on numerous occasions as well during that time period I think it's fundamentally a problem if we leave on WTO considering that the WTO is basically the old safety net I can't choose opting to jump onto the safety net to be honest well I mean Chris you're right WTO are the base rules aren't they for well trade and then you use that and you build upon it I mean just a thought Chris just sort of try this on you so before we even discuss a trade deal with the European Union we've got to pay 39 billion we've got to accept the fact that for some time to come they will make the laws in our country with us having no say and yet America happy to have a tariff and quote of free deal with us it's to be negotiated I get it but to have that deal with us without us paying a penny without any foreign Court having diction and without the 90% of the economy that is not gonna export they're not being tied by rules set in Washington in a sense leaving on WTO and being able to do deals with countries like America doesn't begin to look quite attractive well the problem you've got there is you have a global powerhouse in the United States of America versus the United Kingdom so let's be honest we are not there's a global superpower that we used to be and certainly not in trade anymore most of our GDP it comes in services you see the fundamental problem you have is yes the 39 billion should be paid whether we go on WTO or not why of course I fundamentally believe that we made commitments I would not if I was moving into a house where friends and I started to pull out a week before I want to say oh hey I'm not putting any money towards Chris oh yeah Chris Chris let me just say this to you very quickly the reason it's thirty nine billion is because what mrs. may had built-in to this new treaty agreement was a two-year implementation period so effectively we were staying members of the EU in all but name for a further two years and paying two more years contributions when the House of Lords looked at this they thought the maximum in their view and they're quite it's got a remain a House of Lords their view was the maximum liability was nine billion but when you start looking at the things to leave without the thirty nine billion almost seems relatively small compared to what we would lose if we went on to WTO and let's be honest it was Chris why why because if we didn't pay this 39 million the EU have no further need necessarily to her well basically they could afford sports at the back of the queue at that point because we're dealing in bad faith I think they've dealt in bad faith in many ways for years and years and years before we even reached the brexit referendum it's one of the reasons we've added to leave isn't it I think there's in fairness yeah you know I mean that's okay the relationship broke down we voted to leave I don't think we owe them any money at all frankly there are some pension liabilities for 22,000 people who've worked here over the years and are still alive or they're all there are still alive we could simply take that off the e use books take it onto our own and I tell you something they also last nine to ten billion through the European Investment Bank Chris to me we could simply call it quits but but this is an argument that will run around Chris isn't a free trade deal with America and maybe one more Canada on Australia and maybe India isn't that beginning to look more attractive indeed yeah but I also agree that the EU being one of the largest trading bloc's under what well probably the largest trading bloc in the world would also obviously have its benefit so I don't think that should be skipped out purely for if we can get a free trade agreement with the EU which one well the emitters made did turndown she did well Chris I reckon negotiate one with America strengthen your hand get a new leader who says we are leaving on the 31st we'll leave on whatever terms we have to I think in those circumstances we might just get what a majority of the country might may well come around Chris thank you very much indeed we will not be leaving I get on Twitter on October the 31st brexit will be dead and buried by them well I don't know James I don't know I don't think brexit can ever be dead and buried because I think the genie is out of the bottle and the public wants it you're listening to the Nigel Farage show here on ABC at 6:45 and time for

the 31st of October so rooster Matt Hancock go vet out all the contenders who think that somehow they can renegotiate the deal they're not fit to be p.m. they might be ok they've led a political life they haven't got any common sense they lack pragmatism they would be completely hopeless as negotiators because they don't understand the basic position if we left without doing a No Deal well there are already deals in place that Airlines to take off and citizens rights a lot of things have been greediest No Deal is misleading term is leave on the 31st of October the European Union leaders will come out for us Germany doesn't want to see its industry damaged they will come out stress for a deal the basic pragmatic position should should be been prepared to walk away and then we'll get the deal we want but these these names are they these names they need mention they think they're protecting you because they think there could be some form of economic catastrophe no I think the continued uncertainty for business and the humiliation of Britain in the world let's get back on the world stage trade with the rest of the world yes the US will do a deal with us but there's a lot going on and either in India there's a big world outside they're not that's not quite true alone you know I mean Europe is the European Union is 15 percent of global GDP it's 38 to 40 percent of our overseas trade it is very important but it is declining every single year Elaine I get your messages loud and clear John a nice currents that is a new corner good evening John hello there so John how much does the 31st of October matter as a date well I think it's these massively over to you to be honest with you right yeah it's very simple isn't it their major law we're supposed to leave on the 29th of March yep the laws been broken well the law was missing he decided to change the law by extending it that was what happened yeah but you know you know all these arguments that we've had these arguments left London Center me the fact is we voted to leave and the salary Nancy yeah yeah yes we we didn't know what we were voting for blah blah I mean I actually voted to go into the a thing called the corn market oh yeah don't worry little head it'll all be fine no absolutely that's it symptom Jena Miller said right we should do this by Act of Parliament which is which and she was right she was actually right yes okay we went into Europe by Act of Parliament and would John John John I tell you what I tell you what the most then one of the most impressive pieces of polling I saw was because on the 30th of March millions of people woke up and realize we haven't left their opinion polling in the next week that showed 92% of leave voters felt they've been betrayed over brexit I mean do you sense there's real anger in the country over this or did it will just get over it in the end there is anger there is anger out there John yeah okay do we just want to leave and we do get a story well there we are there we are and real Edison said much the same thing today John I'm going to move on time is tight go to Cardiff to speak to Rodri is a new call org leave me Roderick good evening Roderick no okay sorry the question the question I got to you then is obviously we've got this kind of a preliminary trade agreement with South Korea I believe this is a modular breakfast that's right [Applause] what are your thoughts on kind of stalling Breck they've been setting up these prelim known or deal agreements before we actually pull the other art i thoughts are Roger II we've had three years and about all they've come up with is Switzerland and South Korea what the hell is Liam Fox's department doing I also got I also got the impression Roger II when I was met the American administration and some of their senior figures last week talking to some of them I got the impression that America is absolutely ready to put its side of the negotiation for a trade deal on the table and we've done precious little so I mean you know there's a breach of trust I think between Parliament politics and the people but also they just look incompetent Rodri in my view yeah I mean do you think well that we should have already been stacking up these preliminary no deals I mean of course we should of course we should and I look we've still got four and a half months until we do to leave a government and a prime minister that was serious on delivering on the will of the people understood who understood our business negotiations work would now be calling in a team of business people and I've volunteered some of our people to help with this and yet they're not you know white Rodri they're not serious are they no I agree with you I mean what were your thoughts eyes are on Cannes UK kind of like the free movement of people more of a relationship that we've got with the EU now but with Canada New Zealand because I know that kind of looking outside of the EU and what will go on after the you because that's why I think people are scared off I think people are scared of leaving EU because they don't know what's gonna happen after well well I don't want free movement of people but what I do want us to do is to stop discriminating against some parts of the world in favor of free movement for others and I think there is a sensible deal to be done here and also we should genuinely draw a distinction between people come into work and come in a settle Roger I'm gonna squeeze it one more caller I'm gay too reading to speak to Liam another new caller good evening Liam good afternoon how are you doing hello that we're doing alright so does that date of October 31st does it really really matter so I believe personally that that date the Tories do not actually have to leave by that date and actually my view and justification behind that is because you may trust earlier with betraying the people if we don't leave on that date when in fact I personally believe that a lot of leave voters voted because of the because of a good deal that was promised by the leave campaign and in fact leaving on that date with no deal would be a betrayal of all those people that actually voted for a good deal that they were promised I didn't deal of any kind I've voted to leave but the motivations behind many people who voted to leave were due to the manifesto well not manifest they were due to the promises well as obtained but taking taking back control of our borders taking back control of our money taking back control of our laws if you look at all the big top lines that levers used getting a good deal barely featured well I think a lot of I think a lot of I mean terms of the legalities behind the leave campaign what's your opinion behind the fact that the leave campaign have been prosecuted and oh I think if you take I think if you take on the establishment in this country that always find fault we're out of time we genuinely are Liam I'm sorry I'm back tomorrow at 6:00 at 10:00 tonight is Thom Swarbrick but up next it's iandale thank you very much Nigel we're coming up on the program tonight we have double bubble in the Tory leadership contest at 8:00 Andrea led

Philip Hammond will be taking a firm swipe at the supporters of a no deal Brexit amongst his fellow Tory MPs when he gives his speech tonight at the CBI annual dinner in The Brewery in London.
In his speech he is expected to warn that his party should not copy the populist right in claiming that a WTO Brexit was the only ‘truly legitimate Brexit’.
He will also say that unless the Brexit issue is resolved soon, the country could end up with a new PM leading the country towards a what Hammond calls a damaging no deal exit for ‘ideological’ reasons.
He will also say that “all the preparation in the world” will not avoid the consequences of a no deal Brexit.
As I outlined in a video yesterday, the majority of Tory MPs are Remainers and they will love this rhetoric.
Hammond is doing his best to get a Remainer, probably him, into Number Ten.
Moving on. After telling everyone he would vote for the Lib Dems in this Thursday’s EU elections, arch Tory Remainer Lord Heseltine, has had the Conservative whip removed says the BBC.
Now a few thoughts on British Steel. Much is being made of the Brexit angle and some make it look like Brexit uncertainty has caused all the company’s woes.
The Company says it needs a big cash injection to stay afloat to address what it calls ‘Brexit related issues’.
Crucially 4,000 jobs jobs are directly affected and another 20,000 supply chain jobs are also at risk.
I have to say that I’m no commodities expert but I have tried my best to dig out some relevant information.
Now, the connection with Brexit uncertainty is that, last year, the EU Commission temporarily suspended UK carbon credit processes ahead of Brexit. This led to British Steel having to buy these credits on the open markets leading to a need for an emergency loan from the government.
There is a bit of a glut on the world’s steel markets so prices are depressed and the OECD points out that there are more steel works planned across the globe and says that:
“Should these projects be realised, global steelmaking capacity could increase by 4-5 percent between 2019 and 2021, in the absence of closures.”
Then there’s the raw materials involved.
The UK imports the coal and the iron ore that is used to produce steel.
The price of iron ore has increased worldwide by about 44% since the end of 2018 and, according to the Financial Review, prices could stay elevated well into next year.
And some of this has been driven by a mining tragedy in Brazil when a dam collapsed killing 300 people and flooding a mine.
This, says Patrick Commins of Financial review:
“…ultimately ripped 93 million tonnes from seaborne iron ore supply, or about 6 per cent of the total market. Unsurprisingly, prices for the bulk commodity jumped from about $US75 a tonne to above $US90.”
But, overall it looks to me like a combination of increased raw materials prices, high UK energy prices and low prices for goods produced, coupled with an unforeseen cost to purchase carbon credits to maintain operations have all contributed.
As I said I’m no expert and I don’t know how much the company hedged against this sort of thing happening, but it looks like British Steel has been hit by a perfect storm of adverse events. And the Brexit bit was caused by the actions of the EU Commission.
The end result could be that British Steel goes into administration in the next 24 to 48 hours, which will hit workers and their families the hardest.

hello there the Chancellor Philip Hammond is set to make a speech at a CBI dinner tonight where he is expected to say that supporters of a No Deal brexit are trying to hijack the referendum result Philip Hammond will be taking a firm swipe at the supporters of a No Deal brexit amongst his fellow Tory MPs when he gives his speech tonight at the CBI annual dinner in the brewery in London in his speech he is expected to warn that his party should not copy the populist right in claiming that a WTO brexit was the only truly legitimate brexit he will also say that unless the brexit issue is resolved soon the UK could end up with a new PM leading the country towards what Hammond calls a damaging No Deal exit for ideological reasons he will also say that all the preparations in the world will not avoid the consequences of a No Deal brexit according to reports he will say on the populist right there are those who now claim that the only outcome that counts as a truly legitimate brexit is to leave with No Deal let me remind them the 2016 leave campaign was clear that we would leave with a deal so to advocate for No Deal is to hijack the result of the referendum and in doing so knowingly to inflict damage on our economy and our living standards as I outlined in a video yesterday the majority of Tory MPs are remainders and they will love this rhetoric Hammond is doing his best to get a remain err probably him in to number 10 and we all know in which direction he would take the country don't we moving on after telling everyone he would vote for the Lib Dems in this Thursday's EU elections arch Tory remainer Lord Hesseltine has had the Conservative whip removed says the BBC and a Tory party spokesperson said as a result the Chief Whip the House of Lords has informed Lord Heseltine that he will have the conservative whip suspended this will be reviewed if he is willing to support conservative candidates at future elections but according to Jonathan is a be writing in the brexit central Lord Heseltine has not been thrown out of the party despite earlier warnings that such action was incompatible with Tory party membership they do need to keep every member they can don't they now a few thoughts on British steel much is being made of the brexit angle and some make it look like brexit uncertainty has caused all the company's woes the company says it needs a big cash injection to stay afloat to address what it calls brexit related issues crucially 4,000 jobs are directly affected and another 20,000 supply chain jobs are also at risk but this whole brexit bit did not totally stack up with me so I did a bit of research I have to say that I know commodities experts but I have tried my best to dig out some relevant information now the connection with brexit uncertainty is that last year the EU Commission temporarily suspended UK carbon credit processes ahead of brexit this led to British steel having to buy these credits on the open markets leading to a need for an emergency loan from the government but the FT says that some are questioning the need for that emergency loan as a huge investment package had already been put together for British steel by its investors and the FT also says that British steel pushed ahead with investing 40 million pounds in the French steel producer asked eval at the same time as begging for a UK government bailout however there are also other factors at play here there is a bit of a glut on the world steel markets so prices are depressed and the OECD points out that there are more steel works planned across the globe and says that should these projects be realised global steelmaking capacity could increase by 4 to 5 five percent between 2019 and 2021 in the absence of closures then there's the raw materials involved the UK imports the coal and of the iron ore that is used to produce steel the price of iron ore has increased worldwide by about 44 percent since the end of

flooding an iron ore mine this says Patrick Cummins of the Financial Review ultimately ripped 93 million tonnes from Seabourn iron ore supply or about six percent of the total market unsurprisingly prices for the bulk commodity jumped above that seventy five US dollars a ton to above ninety dollars but to offset some of this is the level of sterling and on this the House of Commons library briefing paper on the UK steel industry says a lower pound makes steel made in the UK cheaper to foreign buyers potentially boosting demand for UK steel however a lower pound makes imports more expensive meaning imported coal and iron ore used in the production process in some of Tatas UK operations will cost more the higher cost of imports will also make imported steel more expensive to UK buyers potentially lowering demand for foreign made steel and increasing demand for steel made in the UK but overall it looks to me like a combination of increased raw materials prices high UK energy prices and low prices for goods produced coupled with an unforeseen cost to purchase carbon credits to maintain operations have all contributed as I said I'm no expert and I don't know how much the

but there are some in the commentary at who think ah what they'll do to stop the brexit party winning these elections is they will come to a deal between the Labour and conservative parties they'll come to a deal on a form of permanent customs union they'll come to a deal on membership of the single market they'll come to a deal on the continued free movement of people they'll come to a deal and that'll be great because it'll stop the brexit party from taking off let me tell you if that grubby deal happens and if they're able to stop which I don't believe they are but if they're able to stop these European elections far from that stopping the brexit party the brexit party in the face of a level of betrayal on that level will literally explode and split the other parties into [Applause]

shouting at a different building for a change Labour's National Executive Committee meeting on the second floor they listened to each other's arguments for five hours before signing off on the draft Jeremy Corbyn wanted for the European elections manifesto things hadn't moved much at all despite efforts by some supporters of a second referendum like the deputy leader of the party Tom Watson who want a second referendum argue the party risks losing the enthusiasm if not the membership of many activists and losing votes to parties with a more outspoken Lee Pro remain one of those parties today was trying to exploit just that apparently 22 of the 70 labour MEP candidates are in favour other people's votes good but not good enough where are the other 48 every single one of our change UK candidates supports a people's vote but some Labour MPs who represent Pro leave constituencies worried that the party is already seen as anti brexit and some pro referendum labour front benchers they're in danger of alienating some labour supporters for good you've got members of the Shadow Cabinet who were openly supporting a second referendum with really only remained on the ballot and that does make people who voted to leave in constituencies like mine very very angry it will hurt labour badly you think in a general election let alone the ones that are coming up I think there is on an honest prospect that this could be the final breach of trust with voters who have been moving away from the labour party for some time in town mine but who now feel that they have been completely not just let down but actually disrespected through this process analysis their efforts to get an agreement between the labour and conservative front bench teams on a brexit deal would intensify in the coming days at cabinet today three ministers protested to the Prime Minister that they thought the conservative family could still come together and itself deliver the brexit deal without labor help any more dn't and rule Edson Liam Fox were firmly told by the chief whip that wasn't realistic that some Tories think could mean an awkward moment for the Labour leader he's offered pretty much all he's asking for from the Tories on brexit others think Jeremy Corbyn too aware of the divisions within labour will find a way to reject any offer but Teresa may looks like she might be playing her last card a Chief Whip told the cabinet those who thought brexit could be got through on Tory MP votes was simply hiding under the duvet Gary Gibbon there with that report I can now speak to two Labour Party MPs in a moment we'll be speaking to Labour's shadow Business Minister Barry Gardner who was in that NEC meeting today but first let's go to Melanie on who has been are we shaking his head – perhaps he wasn't we'll find that out when we get to him a campaign she's on the campaign trail in her constituency in Grimsby today Melanie on what have you found on the doorsteps of Wims be today you've been hard at it good evening John there were two main issues that people have been talking to me about the first it's a very local issue around recycling rates and people very keen to get new recycling bins but the second of course is bricks it and everybody wants to talk to me about that knowing when exactly it's going to happen and why it's taking nearly three years to get to a position where the the deadline of the 29th of March has been and gone and nobody really knows what's happening now so what do they make of your party wrangling about whether to have another referendum to be honest that isn't getting a great deal of cut-through with the people that I've spoken to today I know that that will be all the talk in London and in Westminster circles but out here on the doorstep it is very much about the big bricks at issue why hasn't it happened yet and I heard that piece from Lisa Nandi earlier in the program and I think that she's right people are feeling very frustrated that their views are being ignored and I know that my constituency is extraordinary in some respects because it was such a high leave vote and that isn't the case across the whole of the country however people overall did marginally vote to leave and they expected to see some progress and at the moment it feels very much like it's a plague on all of your houses for not getting our act together and I would say the Prime Minister should have reached out earlier to the Labour Party to try and reach an accommodation much earlier than she did do and this is her timetable that has failed however they don't understand why political parties and representatives can't sit down like grown-ups and reach an accommodation well now I mean do you find contrasting today with when you first set out on the original brexit campaign I mean if you find people are clearer about the issues really understand what it's all about and have any of them at all adjusted their views I don't think that anybody that I've spoken to over the last a few weeks or even the last few months have changed their views at all they have if anything become more entrenched particularly people who were very passionate on both sides of that debate however for those who were slightly more ambivalent and perhaps it was a finer balance about how they chose to vote in in that referendum they very much feel like they recognized that the referendum did not go in their favor those remain voters and so think well then it is the government's responsibility to get on with this and deliver a deal in the best way possible and what happens to you now because I mean you were I think originally remainer yes yeah absolutely and I'm very clear with constituents I campaigned for remain that I voted for remain that you know if if it comes up again which I very much hope that it doesn't that I would probably still be in a position where I say on balance I personally still think that it is better to remain however I recognize that seventy percent of people in this borough and in my constituency voted to leave and we asked them what it was that they wanted us to do and although I am NOT mandated by my constituents I do recognize that when we ask them a question and they tell us what it is that we should do that their views do deserve to be represented and that's what I hope I've been doing in Parliament Melanie on thank you very much indeed for joining us from Grimsby we're now turning to Barry Gardner who in fact is shadow trade minister and was not in the NEC meeting but attended the Shadow Cabinet what what do you make of this fudge tonight I mean it seems you're having a Betty both ways job well John Connor actually first of all congratulate channel for that I think is the most balanced piece of reporting on brexit and and and this whole debate that I've heard in a very long time because you've presented both sides I think you've tried to present both sides very fairly and the the really extraordinary thing about these coming elections is that there is only one party who will be going into those elections trying to appeal to both sides of our population whether they were leave or remain and what we're saying is look we we were a remain party we campaign to remain but when that Democratic decision was taken as Democrats we said okay we made you a promise that was a promise that we committed ourselves to in our manifesto we then said that we would try and deliver on that result we made certain reservations on that and that was we would not go for a no deal and that we would certainly not go for a bad brexit such as the one that's been criticized on all wings of the political parties right across Parliament which is Theresa may steal and that's why we're in there now at the moment trying to negotiate with the government and and Melanie on put it so brilliantly when she said look and she should have been doing this the Prime Minister should have been doing this and you know two years ago bringing recognizing the division that there is in our society and trying to heal it trying to reconcile it and that's why she should have reached out to the Labor Party into the opposition you know two years ago but so we could try and create a compromise but let's say 80 percent of the population would say look it may not be fair it may not be exactly what I want but I can live with this yeah but at the end of the day you look like a push me pull me party I mean in the face of the very strident Nigel Faraj and the forces that are absolutely determined to push ahead with the whatever brexit they can get you seem to be sort of you know very indistinct tonight but no I I reject that entirely because the the vision that Nigel Farage has is of a no deal brexit a deregulated brexit where we would go on to the disaster that would be World Trade Organization turns and what we said is quite clear and that is we will respect the referendum result we should leave the European Union but we should do it in a way that protects jobs protects standards of the environmental standards and rights protections in the workplace for people and in a way that in a BMI chained to we have very little time and and what you do seem to be saying is is that you you will have a referendum if there isn't a deal and you will have a referendum if you can't get anything else it's a kind of backstop well actually John let me refer you back to September last year you were at the party conference I think our labor came out after six hours of negotiation with that compromise and everybody at the time hailed that compromise as as really grown-up politics because what we said is look we will abide by the promises that we've made to the public promises to try and deliver on on the the referendum result but equally promises that we will not run remind people's well-being and and that's what we're continuing to do so very go get that deal we will if we can't then we'll go for a public vote we must leave it there thank you very much indeed for joining us thank you thank you

hello again now he said he'd gone into semi-retirement from politics but Nigel Raj is back leading a brand-new party and he joins us now thanks very much for being on the program and it feels like to start with those local election results of course a brexit party wasn't standing and but it seems like the conclusion drawn by both labour and the Conservatives is that the public want them to do a deal what do you think would be the consequence I don't agree about what the public want is to leave the European Union you know we were promised we'd leave on the 29th of March 500 MPs voted for it the Prime Minister told is over 100 times we were leaving on that date the public don't want a deal and certainly not the deal that mrs. Mays talking about this morning no permanent customs union alignment with single market rules the public want to leave and for us to get on with the rest of that watching our lives what do you think the consequences would be if Therese may enter Amy Corbin did push forward some kind of customs union oh I think if they push forward with this it will be seen as a coalition of politicians against the people and I think millions of people would give up on both labour and the Conservatives I really do so it could be almost like a realignment this would be the final betrayal of it frankly if Bayside's up to this I can't see the point of the Conservative Party even existing you know what's it for I mean you've got you're using some quite loaded language hit a final betrayal and your stools they're talking about what the public want me but the problem with this isn't it is that people want different things there are clearly some people who support your party well we'd like us to leave with no diff univers also a lot of people who would like to see a deal or perhaps even to remain in the EU in the last two months there's been a remarkable shift in polling in this country you know leaving on WTO terms with no deal is now the most popular option but it's not a majority is it oh if you offer people the choice it should we stay and have a second referendum or leave on WTO terms w here terms has a majority but they're not the only toy every single region of in London well they are either we stay and we leave and that's really what it's all about and I honestly think if Mae and Corbin put together a deal where we leave in name only but we're stuck inside all the European Union structures then I think the realignment the British politics will happen II more quickly I genuinely believe that sw1 the Westminster bubble not just the politicians of much the comment area to under estimating the desire for change out there in this country let's look at some of the polling shall we you of course didn't stand as we said in the local elections but have to say the bricks that party is looking as if it is going to do extremely well in the European election so this is the latest polling from you gov you're up there on 30% I mean how are you expecting to happen well I think that we've clearly done very very well as a very new party we've done well with the UK though that's almost disappeared we've done well with a conservative vote I think the significance of what you saw on Thursday will be good I want two people down let me just finish finish the significance of Thursday night as we saw the first cracks in the Labour vote you know the Labour parliamentary party are very very remain lots of them pushing for a second referendum and to remain but there are five million voters out there labour voters who voted leave particularly in the Midlands the North and South Wales and I'd love between now and polling there to have a debate with Jeremy Corbyn about this because people are very confused as to what Labour standing for that challenge what it is a Chafee what it is a challenge absolutely I think if we can dig in if we can dig in to the Labour vote that we can surprise even ourselves how well we do on May 23rd that polling was not looking very good for new cake was actually mentioned down on 4% yeah when you see that do you think of SAS or do you actually feel frequently 26 years of my life I was with Yuki if I was the leader the chairman the national organizer you know for me leaving you kit was a difficult thing to do but now frankly it's past his sell-by date it serves no purpose it's done it's gone I mean Tommy Robinson is an advisor to UK yeah one of its MEP candidates of you has used the N word other offensive language yeah I mean how would you define racism oh well in in in the case of that particular candidate it's just outright abuse you know offensive abuse and there's no doubt they've got a matter action frankly you know we won't even be discussing them after this is you could a racist party well risk I think that it's attracted certain individuals that I would never have allowed join UK okay well now let's talk about the brexit party shall we who's funding you amazing so he just yesterday we hit 85,000 yesterday registered supporters all paying twenty five pounds work it out we've raised getting on for two million pounds through individual people joining through our website um and I can't think that any other party in the UK's ever raise money like that even said an interview previously that you've received one big donation oh oh yes I'm really gonna tell you his name are not because of you because then you would all hound him this is the new transparent politics and yeah I will be declaring it at the end of July so just tell me that I don't see why I I don't see one individual well I said he what if everybody else will that's fine but you know what'll happen if I took at the name of this person you will hound him all of you you'll be outside his house for the next three weeks so no and anyway it's irrelevant it's a small donation it's a small donation of one hundred thousand pounds we've raised I repeat maybe two million pounds in twenty five pounds from individual assessment scrutiny and you'll get it and he'll get it all in good time who's funding change UK well well there you are there you go I also want to ask you about Claire Fox as well yeah one of your candidates at the top of your list in the northwest and now of course there has been some media attention on the fact that she hasn't disavowed and some of these comments that were made in nineteen ninety-three defending this is a classic stitch-up smear story number one she made no comments herself in 1933 but she was a member of a left-wing organization who were Irish Republicans nothing unusual in that and what they said the Revolutionary Communist Party of which she was a member they said we defend the right to the Irish people to take whatever measures are necessary in their struggle for freedom I mean that was made I think we may be looking at Warrington let's just be very clear she we Claire Fox says there were dreadful things that happened before the peace agreement which which which which she hates the fact that they occurred she supports the Good Friday Agreement and does not want politics to be perceived by violent means and the irony of being attacked of her being attacked when Jeremy Corbyn John McDonnell were personal friends of shin fain IRA personal friends / attended Palestinian master ceremonies you know commemorating people who tortured and murdered Israeli athletes you know frankly Claire fought frankly this is a relevant college Amy Corbin has said he has spoken to all sides in the debate I have also asked her in Corbin about his you know relationship with the IRA in previous interviews I think it's fair to say that he knew I was a beginners very very well absolutely and now I also want to ask you about some points that you have made and quite recently as well this was at the Lock Haven University in the United States and you were talking about immigration and integration and you said about this I could take you to a town called Oldham in the north of England where literally on one side of the streets where everybody is white and on the other side of the street everybody is black yeah there is no assimilation yeah well sadly true I was first put onto this by Charles wheeler the late respected journalist who Tony Blair commissioned him to do a report as to what had happened in Oldham why they've been riots and this is pretty much what he told me well and then and then in 2012 Oldham Council themselves having looked at the 2011 census so we have a massive problem here of division I can even go to the Guardians northern correspondent Helen pin and if you look at it you've got one Ward in Oldham that is 97 percent white and literally adjoining it the next Ward that is 66 percent black there is a massive yes because if you know however however some streets percent of population is back yes well I tell you what let's go this week should we and I will show you and I will show you there is complete segregation with all you're arguing for segregation that's fine I'm arguing for integration can't there's a real problem I'm actually not talking necessarily about integration because there is a complex debate on them what I'm talking about is the specifics of facts because 1.2 percent the population in all don't is black so I just watched should we just try this again should we just try this again in one of the wards and Oldham it is 97 percent white and the adjoining Ward is 66 percent black they you can believe me or disbelieve me but they are the facts and I'm making an argument here for integration what's wrong with that okay what's the brexit party's policy on immigration we want a sensible immigration of what we don't discriminate against people that come from India Australia and the rest of the world okay now just finally who do you think should be the next concept a party leader I'm not sure that debates really relevant uh I mean I know people to have Boris or Dominic Rob well both of them voted for Teresa mais treaty in the final analysis I'm not sure either of them really would deliver a proper brexit Steve I think it was a different conversation coming here I think maybe the Conservative Party as it is isn't really fit for purpose maybe we're thinking really here now about a complete realignment of British politics the two-party system does not work they serve no one but themselves and I believe if ever there was a moment when that two-party structure would break down and be replaced by something new it's now and that's what we're in the brexit party I'm gonna try and do okay ambitious I agree so far thank you for your program

I find it staggering that I am watching our elected representatives in the House of Commons now openly discussing keeping the UK under European Union control by whatever means is available to them.
Actually, I lie, I am not staggered at all, I’m just surprised that it’s taken them this long to break cover and that they’ve left it so late that it will prove to be a political shock to the UK system.
Normally, where the EU ratchet is concerned, it’s just a slow incremental process so that no-one realises what’s going on.
But believe me, people are taking notice right now!
But those MPs in Westminster are so isolated and shielded from the ordinary voter that I’m not sure they realise how angry people are with their anti-Brexit performances.
And this afternoon MPs are only debating and voting on anti-Brexit proposals.
After the House voted to take control of the order paper again, the Speaker, John Bercow, selected four of the eight amendments for the debates.
First, Ken Clarke’s amendment to put the requirement for a permanent UK-wide customs union with the EU into any withdrawal agreement and political declaration that might arise.
Second is the Common Market 2.0 proposal put forward by Nick Boles.
Third is the so-called ‘confirmatory public vote’, which really means second EU referendum.
And last is the one called ‘parliamentary sovereignty’, which basically says that if we get near to the end of the current extension period without agreeing a way forward then we have to ask for another extension. And if no extension is forthcoming, MPs get to vote on whether the UK leaves on a WTO Brexit basis and if that is voted down the government must immediately revoke Article 50.
As you can see. they are all amendments that would be likely, if they gained a majority, to lead either to Brexit being reversed directly, or in the form of EU control over our future in another form.
Now, many remain MPs seem to have decided to back more than one of these amendments and both the Labour Party and the SNP seem to be favouring the Nick Boles plan.
Now the one thing in the Boles plan that the EU will not like is the bit that talks about it including the UK having a say on future EU trade deals. It would also as a default include the free movement of people.
Now, to sort any of those out would require the UK to be involved in EU parliamentary elections.
As to negotiate a customs union would probably take some time, as would setting up common market 2.0 or giving time for a confirmatory vote. And revoking Article 50 means staying in the EU so elections would be a must anyway.
Now, as far as I’m concerned, as well as all Brexiteers I talk to, were the UK to take part in MEP elections it would be a political statement that Brexit had been reversed!
It is as far as I’m concerned part of the one way route to Remaining in the EU.
It would be dressed up as a temporary measure, but we would find ourselves trapped in the EU for the whole parliamentary term as excuse after excuse is made to keep us there.
The troubling bit for me is that those debating these measures all know that we would need to hold MEP elections, but they do not talk about it in their speeches and debates.
They are probably hoping no-one will notice!
Ah well! Let’s just see what the votes later tonight bring.

the marathon cabinet meeting concluded after five hours the outcome Theresa May has the backing of her government ministers at least the choices before us were difficult particularly in relation to the Northern Ireland's back stock but the collective decision of cabinet was that the government should agree the draft withdrawal agreement and the outline initial declaration but if I may end by just and there was a deeply personal finale I believe that what I owe to this country is to take decisions that are in the national interest and I firmly believe with my head and my heart that this is a decision which is in the best interests of our entire United Kingdom since the first leaks of the draft brexit deal emerged on Tuesday evening has been a febrile atmosphere in Westminster ahead of the cabinet meeting there was a boisterous session in Parliament and without even having seen the text of the deal the opposition leader heap scorn on it it breaches the Prime Minister's own red lines it doesn't deliver a strong economic deal that supports jobs and industry and we know they haven't prepared seriously for no deal so does the Prime Minister still intend to put a false choice to Parliament between her botched deal or no deal the position of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party is also crucial in all of this the Prime Minister's minority government relies on DUP support in Parliament but their backing on Brecht it looks doubtful if she thinks that she's going to get this to Parliament she has another thing coming all the groups she needs none of them seems willing to help her the DEP were invited for this deal because it puts a barrier between Great Britain Northern Ireland and the hard Rex's weren't supported because it keeps in the Customs Union a lot of remainders Boeing did because it reduced our influence it does nothing for services and it keeps us a mere instance without any to say the over running of the UK cabinet meeting meant that in Brussels a meeting of EU ambassadors had to break up without getting the chance to discuss the draft text nevertheless Michel Barnier the EU chief negotiator hailed the decisive progress as he put it that he said had been made de corazon to this agreement is a decisive crucial step in concluding these negotiations it's also the achievement of a method a methodology and negotiations carried out in transparency from the word go and fully in respect of our respect of man des cabinet approval means plans can now be accelerated for a summit of EU leaders most likely on November 25th but an actual fact the collective approval of her cabinet ministers was perhaps the least of Prime Minister Teresa mais worries important though it was remember she still faces the prospect of a no confidence vote in a leadership from her own party back benches and there is the prospect of a parliamentary landscape with so many different contingents that there is no clear consensus or majority for anything other than opposition to her brexit plan Paul Brennan al Jazeera Westminster
Views:800|Rating:0.96|View Time:27:55Minutes|Likes:5|Dislikes:21 Theresa May made a desperate final gamble to get her Brexit deal through the British Parliament before she’s thrown out of office — but her efforts look doomed.
In a hastily arranged speech on Tuesday, the embattled prime minister promised to give members of Parliament a vote on whether to call another referendum to ratify the terms of Britain’s divorce from the European Union. It’s something many MPs — including scores in the opposition Labour Party — have been calling for, but she made it conditional on them backing her deal first.
Within minutes of her speech ending, the backlash began. Pro-Brexit Conservative MPs lined up with the opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn and May’s Northern Irish allies to condemn her proposals. They vowed to vote against them in the House of Commons next month.
May’s latest offer represents possibly the final throw of the dice for a prime minister who has run out of options. Almost three years after the U.K. voted to exit the EU, May’s deal has been rejected three times by Parliament. She’s tried cross-party talks to work out a joint plan with Corbyn but they collapsed last week.
The pound strengthened after Bloomberg reported the plan to allow a vote on another referendum, but then gave up its gains and was unchanged at $1.2732.
May has promised to put her deal, in the form of a draft law, to a vote in Parliament in the first week of June. Facing overwhelming calls for her to resign, the prime minister has promised to agree to the timetable for her own exit once that vote has taken place. Barring a political miracle, May is headed for a humiliating end to her career.
“I have tried everything I possibly can to find a way through,” May told an audience in central London. “I offered to give up the job I love earlier than I would like.”
The prime minister said that although the cross-party talks with Labour have failed, most members of Parliament still want to deliver the result of the 2016 referendum. Then she set out her offer of “one last chance to do that.”
As part of a 10-point plan, May promised:
A choice for Parliament over the kind of customs model the U.K. should have with the EU after Brexit.
A guaranteed vote on whether to call a second referendum to ratify the terms of the exit deal, before Parliament can approve the divorce.
Alternative arrangements to mitigate the impact of the so-called “backstop” plan to for avoiding a hard border with Ireland.
But first members of the House of Commons will need to vote in favor of May’s overall divorce deal in the first week of June.

good afternoon ladies and gentlemen my name is Kevin and is chairman and Senior Partner of the UK and Middle East Coast I'm delighted to welcome this afternoon Prime Minister Sir ministers and represented the media to our offices here in Bank my place I know you don't want to hear from me just a few quick words on PwC we employ 22,000 people in the UK and over the last year we've recruited two and a half thousand school leavers apprentices and graduates to our buildings 25 offices across the UK it's a special week for us because this week we open a new office in Bradford to provide high quality jobs to the community they're like all business leaders we crave certainty and stability and therefore I'm delighted to ask Prime Minister to the platform now speak about brexit thank you very much thank you very much I became Prime Minister almost three years ago immediately after the British people voted to leave the European Union my aim was and is to deliver brexit and help our country move beyond the division of the referendum and into a better future a country that works for everyone where everyone has the chance to get on in life and to go as far as their own talent and hard work can take them that is a goal that I believe can still unite our country I knew delivering grexit was not going to be simple or straightforward the result of 2016 was decisive but it was close the challenge of taking brexit from the simplicity of the choice on the ballot paper to the complexity of resetting that country's relationship with 27 of its nearest neighbors was always going to be huge while it has proved even harder than I anticipated I continue to believe that the best way to make a successor brexit is to negotiate a good exit deal with the EU as the basis of a new deep and special partnership for the future that was my pitch to be leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister that is what I set out in my Lancaster House speech and that was what my party's election manifesto said in 2017 that is in essence what the Labour Party's election manifesto state is to and over 80% of the electorate backed parties which stood to deliver brexit by leaving with a deal we've worked hard to deliver that but we have not yet managed it I've tried everything I possibly can to find a way through it's true that initially I wanted to achieve this predominantly on the back of conservative and votes in our parliamentary system that is simply how you normally get things done I thought the changes MPs demanded I offered to give up the job I loved earlier than I would like and on 29th of March the day we were meant to leave the EU if just 30 MPs had voted differently we would have passed the withdrawal agreement and we would be leaving the EU but it was not enough so I took the difficult decision to try to reach a cross-party deal and brexit many MPs on both sides were unsettled by this but I believe it was the right thing to do we engaged in six weeks of serious talks with the opposition offering to compromise but in the end those talks were not enough for labour to reach an agreement with us but I do not think that means we should give up the House of Commons voted to trigger article 50 and the majority of MPs say they want to deliver the result of the referendum so I think we need to help them find a way and I believe there is now one last chance to do that I've listened to concerns from across the political spectrum I've done all I can to address them and today I'm making a serious offer to MPs across Parliament a new brexit deal as part of that deal I will continue to make the case for the Conservative Party to be united behind a policy that can deliver grexit nine out of ten Conservative MPs have already given the withdrawal agreement they're backing and I want to reach out to every single one of my colleagues to make the very best offer I can to them we came together around an amendment from sir Graham Brady and this gave rise to the work on alternative arrangements to the backstop although it's not possible for those to replace the backstop and withdrawal agreement we can start the work now to ensure they are a viable alternative so as part of the New Mexico we will place the government under a legal obligation to seek to conclude alternative arrangements by December 2020 so that we can avoid any need for the backstop coming into force I've also listened to unionist concerns about the backstop so the new brexit deal goes further to address these it will commit that should the backstop come into force the government will ensure that Great Britain will stay aligned with Northern Ireland we will prohibit the proposal that a future government could split Northern Ireland off from the UK's customs territory and we will deliver on commitments to Vall island in the December 2017 joint report in fall we will implement paragraph 50 of the joint report in law the Northern Ireland Assembly and executive will have to give their consent on a cross community basis so new regulations which are padded to the backstop and we will work with our competence and supply partners on how these commitments should be entrenched in law this near exit delay will contain significant further changes to protect the economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom and deliver brexit it is a bespoke solution that answers the unique concerns of all parts of community in Northern Ireland but the reality is that after three attempts to secure parliamentary agreement we will not leave the European Union unless we have a deal that will curb on cross wider cross-party support and that is why I sat down with the opposition I've been serious about listening to views across the house throughout this process that's why I went to Labour MP easily Sunanda and Gareth Snell put forward their proposals to get Parliament the bigger say in the next phase it goes I listen to them so the new brexit deal will set out in law that the House of Commons will approve the UK's objectives for the negotiations on our future relationship with the EU and they will approve the treaties governing that relationship before the government signs them and while the talks with the opposition did not reach a comprehensive agreement we did make significant progress in a number of areas like on workers rights I'm absolutely committed to the UK continuing to leave the way on this issue but I understand people who want to guarantees and I'm happy to give them so the new brexit deal will offer new safeguards to ensure these standards are always met we will introduce a new workers rights bill to ensure UK workers enjoy rights that are every bit as good as or better than those provided for by EU rules and we will discuss further amendments with trade unions and businesses the new brexit deal will also guarantee there will be no change in the level of Environmental Protection when these EU and we will establish a new independent office of Environmental Protection to uphold the highest environmental standards and enforcement clients the new Rexach deal will also place a legal duty on the government to seek as close to frictionless trade with the EU in goods as possible subject to being outside the single market and ending freedom of movement in order to deliver this the UK will maintain common rules with the EU for goods and agri-food products that are relevant Czech supporter this will be particularly important for our manufacturing firms and trade unions protecting thousands of jobs that depend on just-in-time supply chains the most difficult area is the question of customs at the heart of delivering grexit lies attention between the strength of our ambition to seize the new opportunities that brexit presents and the need to protect the jobs and prosperity that are built on interconnected relationship with other european economies this ambition should not be divisive there are many people who voted to leave who also want to retain close trading links with Europe just as there are many people like myself who voted to remain a debtor excited by the new opportunities the brexit presents indeed I believe one of the great opportunities of leaving the European Union is the ability to have an independent trade policy and to benefit from the new jobs and industries that can result from deepening our trade ties with partners across every continent of the world but I've never believed that this should come at the expense of the jobs and livelihoods that are sustained by our existing trade with the EU and to protect these both the government and the opposition agree that we must have as close as possible to frictionless trade at the UK EU border now the government has already put a proposal which delivers the benefits of a customs union but with the ability for the UK to determine its own trade and development policy neighbor are both skeptical of our ability to negotiate that and don't believe an independent trade policy is in the national interest they would prefer a comprehensive customs union with a UK say entry entry policy but with the EU negotiating on our part if we're going to pass withdrawal agreement bill and to deliver brexit we must resolve this difference as part of the cross party discussions the government offered a compromise option of a temporary customs union on goods only including UK say in relevant EU trade policy and an ability to change the arrangement so a future government could move it in its preferred direction we were not able to agree this as part of our cross party talks so it is right that Parliament should have the opportunity to resolve this during the passage of the bill and decide between the government's proposal and a compromise option and so the government will commit in law to let Parliament decide this issue and to reflect the outcome of this process in legislation I've also listened carefully to those who've been arguing for a second referendum I've made my own view on this be clear on many time many times I do not believe this is a route that we should take because I think we should be implementing the result of the first referendum not asking the British people to vote in a second one but I recognize the genuine and sincere strength of feeling across the house on his inflation issue the government will therefore include in the withdrawal agreement bill an introduction a requirement to vote on whether to hold a second referendum and this must take place before the withdrawal agreement can be ratified and if the House of Commons were to vote for a referendum it would be requiring the government to make provisions for such a referendum including legislation if it wanted to ratify the withdrawal agreement so to those MPs who want a second referendum to come the deal you need a deal and therefore withdrawal agreement bill to make it happen so let it have its second reading and then make your case to Parliament finally we cannot expect MPs to vote on the same two documents they previously rejected so we will seek changes to political declaration to reflect this commune deal so our new brexit do makes of 10-point offer to everyone in parliament who wants to deliver the result of the referendum one the government will seek to conclude alternative arrangements to replace the backstop high December 2020 so that it never needs to be used to a commitment that should the backstop come into force the government will ensure that Great Britain will stand aligned with warn Ireland through the negotiating objectives and final treaties for our future relationship with the EU will have to be approved by MPs for a new workers rights bill the guarantees workers rights will be no less favorable than in the EU five will be no change in the level of environmental protection when we leave the EU six the UK will seek as close to frictionless trade in goods with the EU as possible while outside the single market and ending free movement 7 will keep up-to-date with EU rules for goods and agri-food products that are relevant to checks at border protecting the thousands of jobs that depend on just-in-time supply chains 8 the government will bring forward a customs compromise for MPS to decide on to break the deadlock 9 who will be a vote for MPs on whether the deal should be subject to a referendum and 10 will be a legal duty to secure changes to the political declaration let this new deal all of these commitments will be guaranteed in law so they will endure at least for this pond the revised deal will deliver on the result of the referendum and overly by voting for withdrawal agreement bill that second reading come MPs provide the vehicle Parliament needs to determine how we eat the EU so if MPs vote against the second reading of this bill they are voting to stop brexit if they do so the consequences could hardly be greater reject this deal and leaving the EU with a negotiated deal any time soon will be dead in the water and what would we do then some suggest leaving without a deal but whatever you think of that outcome Parliament has been clear it will do all it can to stop it if not No Deal that it have to be a general election or a second referendum that could lead to revocation and lower exit at all who believes that a general election at this moment when we still not yet delivered on what people instructed us to do is in the national interest I do not my views on second referendum are well known look at what this debate is doing to our politics extending it for months more perhaps indefinitely risked opening the door to a nightmare future of permanently polarized politics look around the world and consider the health of liberal democrat democratic politics and look across the United Kingdom and consider the impact of failing to deliver on the clear instruction of the British people in a lawful referendum we do not have to take that path instead we can deliver brexit all the changes I've set out today have the simple aim of building support in Parliament to do that I believe that is a majority do we one for a brexit deal comments by parsing a deal we can actually get brexit done and move our country forward if we can do so I passionately believe that we can seize the opportunities that I know lie ahead the world is changing fast our young people will enjoy enjoy opportunities in the future that my generation could never have dreamed of this is a great time to be alive a great future awaits the United Kingdom and we have all we need as a nation to make your success if we're trying to 20s the 2030s but we will not do so as long as our politics remain stuck in an endless debate on brexit we all have to take some responsibility for the fact that we're in the same class and we all have a responsibility to do what we can to get out of it the biggest problem with Britain today is its politics and who can fix that with the right grexit deal we can end this corrosive debate we can get out of the EU political structures the Parliament the Commission the Council of Ministers that are emotionalize under our own environment back in sovereign control of our destiny we can stop British laws being enforced by a European Court and instead make our own Supreme Court genuinely supreme we can end free movement and design an immigration system based around skills that work for our economy and society we can stop making vast annual payments to the EU budget and instead instead spend our own money our own priorities like the NHS we can get out of the Common Fisheries Policy in the command of cultural policy design our own systems around our own needs and resources we can do all of these things and by leaving with a deal we can do so much more besides by reaching an agreement with our new trading partners we can keep tariff barriers down and goods flowing friction-free across borders protecting jobs and setting our firms up the future yes we can guarantee workers rights and environmental protections with a deal we can keep our close security partnerships and keep working together to keep people safe we can ensure that the challenge of the bad border between Northern Ireland to dial it is met in a way that works of people on both sides this is a huge opportunity for the United Kingdom out of the EU out of ever closer Union free to do things differently and doing so in a way that protects jobs protects our security maintains a close relationship with our friends and works the whole United Kingdom it is practical it is responsible it is deliverable right now it is slipping away from us we risk losing a great opportunity this deal is not the final word on our future relationship with the EU it is a stepping stone to reach that future a future where the people of the UK determine the road ahead for the country we all love this deal lays the groundwork and settles many of the core issues but in the years ahead Parliament will be able to debate decide and refine the exact nature of our relationship with the EU some will want us to draw closer others will want to become more different both sides can make their case in the months and years ahead the key thing is decisions will be made not by any peas or Commissioners or the EU Council but by the United Kingdom Parliament elected by the British people that is what being an independent nation state is all about those debates those decisions are for the future what matters now is honoring the result of the referendum and seizing the opportunity which is right before us so we all needed a new offer to find common ground in Parliament that is now the only way to deliver brexit over the next two weeks the government will be making the case for this deal in Parliament and media and in the country on what is best and right for our country now and in the future and on what the majority of British people of all political persuasions want to see happen tomorrow I made a statement to the House of Commons and then we opportunity is throughout the bill for MPs on all sides to have their say but I say with conviction to every MP of every party I have compromised now I asked you to compromise to we've been given a clear instruction by the people we are supposed to represent so hope you find a way to honor that instruction move our country and our politics forward and build the better future that all of us want to see thank you now the student I'm sequestrants from the media and thank you mr. lawrence berkeley of c– news and as you said that they're getting of your speech you've had nearly three years the opposition parties have already said they will not vote for this deal isn't it simply too late now for you to be offering a compromising video please simply don't want to listen and secondly can you confirm that if this bill is lost you will do well on the second part of your question or that was last week's news and i set out our agendas what to what what will be happening the on the first point that you make i would say to every MP and I've set this actually I'll make it straight into the House of Commons tomorrow we will be publishing the bill wait and look at the details of the bill and think about the importance of delivering brexit because this is the way that we can ratify an agreement and ensure that we leave the European Union that must be at the forefront of our thinking and as I said I think this is the opportunity we have to do just that so look at the details of this bill if I say I compromised I think I asked others to compromise too so that together we can do what the British people voted for in the referendum and we really do that's Prime Minister whatever happens now with your brexit bill you have promised to stand down as Prime Minister would you like to see a brexit ear replace you or do you think that that would just prolong the polarization of politics that you've just spoken off nice try best but my view is I'm not going to comment on the future a future leadership reduction that will be a matter for the Conservative Party in all of its parts I see let's see sorry I'll give you my solution places are where you said you said but you will give me the opportunity to vote on whether to have a so-called confirmatory referendum does that mean you are giving a commitment that if they vote for that referendum there will be a referendum and you also said look you will give any they vote on whether the UK should remain in a permanent customs union without the ability to negotiate trade deals with other countries again is this a commitment that if they vote for that that is what a Conservative government would negotiate was I said in the speech obviously and as we take these issues through the through the House of Commons what the House of Commons will be saying is what they want to see in the in the final bill and if you want a deal it's about ratifying the bill but I do have to pick you up Robert on in fact that you said that I had said there would be a compromise solution of a permanent customs union on the table no I didn't I said a temporary customs union which would enable a future government to take the Russkies arrangement in whichever direction it wished wish to do so Francis for instance over from the times you've taken a case to the country over the next two weeks there are elections on Thursday when we actually see the bill 37 clauses and the new are you committing to publishing the bill before recess we'll be publishing the bill in the next few days and as I say I would ask people to wait and look at the details of what is in the bill and as I say this is the opportunity that people have to deliver on brexit what does the bill do it enables us to get out of there EU it enables us to take that control of our money our borders and our laws and that's what people voted for that's what this bill would enable people to do maybe courier from the mirror and Prime Minister you came into number 10 i'ma sing to deliver brexit and to put the issue of Europe to bed wants to prove Conservative Party how successful do you think you've been in doing that well patiently obviously I just said my speech I haven't connected it for exit this is about what I'm doing today is about setting out what I believe is a new brexit deal that can command majority across the House of Commons and that can enable us to do just that because it's not just my responsibility to deliver brexit I believe it's the responsibility of the whole of the House of Commons to deliver that grexit we gave the British people the choice in the referendum the House of Commons and the government at the time trading would abide by the decision the House of Commons vote each trigger article 50 the House of Commons passed the initial withdrawal Act that set the scene for us being able to withdraw when he had a deal and the legislation would be new legislation will be necessary to put that deal into place and now we have the opportunity while confirming that brexit by passing this by passing this bill I'll take one last question from Jason chasing ghosts in the Daily Mail some of your colleagues seem to be opposed to this not because necessarily what's in it but because it's you who's doing the asking what do you say to those who now think it's your duty and international interest for you to step aside and let someone else have a go before this whole thing is even worse on the on that issue of myself as I said to Jinora you know the situation as I said have as we said last week following my discussions with try and channel 22 look I say this isn't just about me if it was just about me and how I voted we don't read have left the European Union actually this is about a responsibility across the whole of the House of Commons for us to come together and find a way onto of delivering on the instruction people gave us people want us to leave the EU we need to deliver that this deal enables the House of Commons to do that to come together to support the withdrawal agreement and ensure that we leave the European Union thank you [Applause]

you are here today and the birth catalogue of a new role in British politics and welcome to the rectum politics we tell them we're going and if they don't understand it we can talk to Yunker in a language which he does understand and and we can say news are long monsieur news are long I joined the Conservative Party in 1984 this is not a decision I have made lightly to leave a party for which I have fought at every election since 1987 from Maggie Thatcher through to raise a mane I know which one I'd rather have representing us now a letter addressed to me owned it up and it was in very spidery and writing and the author of the letter said dear mr. Parrish during the war I served in Bomber Command on many missions over occupied Europe he said I can tell you you only start getting flak when you're getting near and the target please welcome to the stage all the brexit party candidates [Applause] [Applause] you [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] the idea that you should have a second referendum would be incredibly damaging most of all to the trust in democracy from people up and down this country the mood of the country of growing fury and anger and frustration I don't think people in Westminster and central London have got any idea what's out there and what may happen the people are confident in how great we are as a nation what we're talking about is the opportunity to be free again free to be a self-determination and that's what the people want leave leave means leave doesn't mean leave with a deal will leave with a bad deal we must not and we will not allow this complete and utter shambles in Westminster to continue we all know that the UK can do so much better than this please welcome to the stage richard theis it's just like another two's delight in West London isn't it it's fantastic to see so many people here this evening I think I've come to the right party do we believe in bricks it when do we want it I have to say you're a lot more friendly than the Electoral Commission that I spend some hours with earlier goodness me anyway it's fantastic to have everybody here and first of all I'd like to give a huge thank you to our incredible candidates who worked so hard during the recent weeks they have they have been absolutely incredible most of them have never stood for public office before but they were brave enough to put their head above the parapet and to say enough is enough and some of the abuse the vitriol the appalling signs that have been painted on walls and posters and things is utterly disgraceful now it's hard to believe we've been going for just over five weeks I hope you'll agree with me we have been quite busy and hopefully on the screen we can see the video that we announced our launch video at that press conference in a factory in the Midlands in Coventry just over five weeks ago we have been betrayed that is why I set up the brexit party it's why we're gonna fight the European elections on May the 23rd and that is just the beginning of what is needed in this country democracy is under threat and when politicians failed to deliver there must be consequences I was too young to vote in 2016 but now I support the brexit party because I believe in delivering on democracy it's time to recognize that actually we are an incredible nation standing on our right to be heard successful hard-working so much to be confident enthusiastic and optimistic about that's why I'm supporting the present party we are a single nation we wish to remain a nation they must adhere to the promises made for people let's be optimistic for the benefit of our children and grandchildren you want a home and you're a brexit here you join the brexit party now we can move so much better than currently we're guessing from our members of parliament we want to be an independent self-governing nation making its own laws controlling its own board and be proud of who we are as a people join us hopeless supporters do what you can for us we need change in this country and we need it now Britain's needs the brexit party and the Flexi party needs you [Applause] more from nigel later I have to tell you he's on fantastic form he really is he's been brilliant I've had him in training anyway the truth is ladies and gentlemen that we all know that our country can do so much better but instead we've been utterly completely and totally humiliated humiliated by incompetent leadership incapable negotiators and MPs who want to do dirty dodgy nasty useless backroom deals and we here today the ultimate ultimate betrayal from someone that I suppose we still have to call our prime minister for a while so how long has she known how long has she known that she was gonna offer a second referendum as part of a way to try and bribe and blackmail MPs into signing this appalling deal [Applause] it's an absolute disgrace but now the truth is out indeed the truth is out we now know what this Prime Minister really stands for she doesn't believe in anything except remaining in number 10 for that little bit longer but we are the brexit party we're full of hope we're full of optimism full of ambition because we know that things need to change we stand for capable common-sense competent politics we've got to take on the establishment we've got to take on the vested interests of the big multinationals the CBI and a civil service that have simply proven themselves not up to their job we we simply need much better people to come into politics and that's why it's been so amazing to work with these candidates the quality of these candidates I have no doubt is the highest quality candidates that have ever stood for public office in this country in a generation and ladies and gentlemen when we say when we say that we're gonna change politics for good we mean it we've opened our website for applications for parliamentary candidates so we hope the lots more fantastic capable able people will put themselves forward because we all know that brexit is a huge huge opportunity it's not a problem to be mitigated it's an opportunity to be embraced with enthusiasm with ambition with confidence and with belief but there's not a lot of that in the two main parties and what we've seen in this process is the two-party system in the United Kingdom is broken [Applause] it's time for change and unlike others we haven't been changing our name every other week so what we need to do though it's absolutely vital ladies and gentlemen we're doing ok but my word we've got to get the vote out on Thursday we have got to win and we need to win big that means that all of you please don't forget don't go on a holiday spread the word get the vote out and your family your friends your dog's your friend ur friends anybody that you can talk to we've got to get the vote out we've got to send that very clear message now I just need to do a quick straw poll hands up all of you who are registered supporters it's a pretty good start but I reckon there's a few of you who are still holding back no excuses ladies and gentlemen it's a minimum of 25 quid and don't believe any nonsense you hear from the media we need your support and we need it now and so whilst they call me the chairman the realities are no worst and I'm actually just the warm-up act we have three incredible speakers this evening the first of whom needs little introduction but it's fair to say that she's had a number of phases to her career like me she was a member of a certain other political party but we saw the light she was an MP for that political party for 23 years that was really just her warm up things then she realized that actually we all needed educating about dancing so she went on Strictly Come Dancing this was phase 2 now not being enough a bit of Celebrity Big Brother before the big important challenge in her life to be part of the brexit party we're so thrilled that she has joined our campaign our party and has been such a fantastic speaker campaigner and advocate before we welcome and to the stage let's just see her on the video former conservative minister and Widdecombe has announced that she will stand for Nigel Farage's brexit party and lifelong Conservative Ann Widdecombe has today announced that she is coming out of retirement the whole nation is fed up to the back teeth and just wants a resolution is unjust the seventeen point four million who have been betrayed it is also generations to come now if they have their way will not grow up in an independent self-governing country the National good comes first and that's what everybody out there is saying I'm not fluffy as in Parliament just aren't hearing if we get worn down if we can't get it to you all then just call the whole thing off no there is against democracy believes in its will is more important than the will of the people I shall focus on one thing delivering what the people voted for please welcome to the stage and Widdecombe [Applause] right ladies right ladies and gentlemen I'm just going to ask you a few questions the first one is if we stay in the EU will we stay in control of our own laws and the second is is it possible both to be in the EU and to control our own borders and is it possible to be in the EU and to control our own trade and finally is it possible to be in the EU and to be governed by our own democratically elected government well those four knows ladies and gentlemen are the answer to people who say that we did not know what we were voting for we knew exactly what we were voting for and we also know what the remains were voting for they want us to have no control over our own laws our own borders our own trade or to be governed by our own democratically elected government that was what they were voting for how could anybody with an ounce of pride in Britain vote for that and we were promised faithfully promised in 2016 that whatever was decided in that referendum would be upheld and they didn't stop there in 2017 both major parties stood on manifestos which said that we would have a brexit and what is more Teresa mais manifesto went further it's said in black and white that no deal was better than a bad deal and they have spent the last two years Renne aging on those manifestos and then people say to us why haven't we got a manifesto what is the point of having manifestos when you abandon them at the first inconvenience well you know I think this is the message we send to Westminster they have a choice either they let Britain leave the EU or we will make sure they leave Westminster [Applause] Thursday Thursday is not the end it is the beginning it is the beginning of getting true democracy back into this country it is the beginning of making sure that we are governed with competence with openness and with fairness and above all it is the beginning of making sure that it is the people's will that is implemented not the will of those who go against us [Applause] you know the problem is really very simple we have a nation which wants to leave the EU and we have a parliament which wants to remain in the EU well we have to show them who's the boss and it is both parties Jeremy Corbyn produced a manifesto jeremy corbyn produced a manifesto that said very clearly that the results of the referendum would be implemented and although it's quite true that the government has made a complete and utter mess of brexit they couldn't have done it without the full cooperation of the Labour Party I mean there we were immediately after the local elections we weren't even standing and yet people were writing us in on their ballot papers and the thing I enjoyed most was the expression on jeremy corbyn's face they'd been boasting that they were going to make 400 gains and they made 82 losses and that was the Prime Minister's opportunity she should have said Jeremy look we're both in big trouble we have to deliver brexit instead of which she said to him Oh Jeremy what would you like would you like a customs union Oh certainly would you like to stay aligned to the single market Oh certainly to be governed by EU law Oh Jeremy just told me how much of the EU law you want us to be governed by you know I said at the beginning of this campaign that we had the worst prime minister since Anthony Eden well I apologized to Anthony Eden how often have you heard that if we leave the EU everything is going to be chaos do you remember that we were told if we even dared to vote to leave the EU everything was going to be chaos in fact if we leave the EU we have a really bright future ahead of us we can be part of the globe instead of part of some terrible strong protectionist bloc which actually thwarts economic development economic enterprise and our trade with the rest of the world oh we're told we can't possibly trade if we're not part of the EU how many countries aren't part of the EU and have they all stopped trading the fact is we do not need the EU the EU is a burden nobody can tell me as they sometimes try but that really we are free to make our own laws because I spent seven years as a government minister and I know how impossible it was for us to pass any law that the EU did not want and how impossible it was for us to resist any law from them that we did not want that is the reality a gentleman called giver hofstadt thinks we are a colony well I would say this to him colonies have a rather disconcerting habit of revolting and when they have revolted and when they have regained their independence they can also have a habit about stripping their former masters just ask America so our aim on Thursday is twofold the first is we have to send a message which will terrify us monster a message which they can only interpret one way which is that their future actually depends on Britain's future being outside the EU that is the first message and the second message we have to send them is we are not going to go away this is not just about Thursday this is making sure that Britain leaves the EU and has a proud free independent future and we will stay around as long as it takes to deliver that now I spend 55 years in a certain other party and during that time I did all the campaigning or the canvassing all the street markets all the public meetings and I never in those whole 55 years saw energy and commitment as I have seen during this campaign from our supporters so let's build on that energy build on that commitment after Thursday comes Peterborough and after Peterborough comes the next general election so thank you ladies and gentlemen for your commitment to a free independent Britain and let's remember that is what it is about it is not about a party it is about a country and a cause [Applause] Wow [Applause] Wow that isn't gentlemen if that's not the definition of an inspiration I don't know what is truly inspiring Thank You Anne [Applause] and an quite rightly referred to the opportunities that we can take on the global stage and let anybody be a no doubt a vote for the brexit party is a vote for a WTO brexit because we know we know the opportunities that that will present we know that that gives us the maximum negotiating leverage we know that No Deal is always better than a bad deal but let people be under no illusion either a vote for the brexit party is a vote that some of our elected MVPs should play a significant role in the future negotiating team because we have the skills in this team we have the skills the expertise and the wisdom unlike and of course we have the belief and the passion unlike civil servants who were sent in to do a job they didn't believe in and surprise surprise they did a useless woeful appalling job in terms of being on the global stage and move on to our next speaker our guest speaker this evening who is the former prime minister and president of the Czech Republic a staunch euro skeptic a passionate defender of democracy and the nation-state the author doesn't believe in political correctness that sounds that sounds popular before we welcome president Klaus to the stage is fantastically having with us let's just see him an action on the video he was born during the Nazi occupation he lived during the communist regime he fought against the EU in order to defend his people and democracy some people who take freedom and democracy for granted are not able to understand I don't need the European unification would you be ready to to get rid of your government and to create a and different government there was one wonderful bright uplifting moment during the Czech presidency and I have of course referring to the visit of václav Klaus what a wonderful speech that was coming into this chamber and telling a few home truths and pointing out that European parliamentarians and leaders are not listening to the peoples of Europe at which 200 of you got up and walked out of the room I definitely tried to keep the Czech Republic as a sovereign country as a free country Europe needs a radical political process the brakes it needs a brexit party it is great that Nigel Farah please welcome to the stage that of Klaus [Applause] ladies and gentlemen dear dear brexit friends I am extremely honored extremely pleased to be asked to come here this evening and to address political gathering I must tell you that that I am not used to speak abroad I brought I speak quite often but not on such political campaign you realize and so it's not that easy for me [Applause] you know in a foreign language and especially after such an incredible speaker you know I am afraid I can't I can't compete I would like to start the saying something what you should know and you probably don't know that you have many friends in the Czech Republic many friends generally and many friends connected this brexit that's very that's very important I have to tell you that in the moment when we first heard the results of the of the brexit referendum many checks opened champagne bottles it was it was a great event not just for you for us as well you know we considered considerated not only your victory it was a victory of all European Democrats it was an important message [Applause] it was the brexit referendum was not only about Great Britain I must tell you it was it was about Europe as a whole and in this respect it was about the Czech Republic as well so many things for that we read each video Czechs have are in many respects the same or similar critics of the EU arrangements of the EU post democracy of the UNAM sensitivity and arrogance of the EU non-democratic substance we similarly we similarly as you want to make decisions about ourselves about our country in Prague the same as you want to make decisions about your country here in one room not in Brussels it is it is it is that it is that simple all other interpretations wrong and purposefully misleading your brexit decision was a historic event it changed it changed Europe it was also a fatal blow to the pride of all European mandarins to the pride of the whole European Union nomenklatura many people however from green supposed that brexit has been achieved just by the referendum they were wrong the political elites didn't want to accept didn't want to accept the proxy decisions and they didn't want to find a positive solution they wanted to punish to denigrate to humiliate Great Britain as much as possible [Applause] they also wanted to demonstrate to all of us in the rest of Europe in all other EU member states that there is no friendly exit from the EU and that especially that especially the small countries don't have a chance to leave the EU that was their ambition to demonstrate [Applause] the EU behavior ask for a resolute clear and decisive British stance it to our great regret and I am sure to your great regret didn't come such as your country goes and stays divided was instead hesitant your politicians were not able to react they probably didn't expect such a merciless and ruthless EU behavior [Applause] not not to expect it was however a great mistake as I look at it from from from crack at the distance the British main political parties totally failed and they totally failed and betrayed and abandoned the British citizens their voters it had however one positive side effect by doing it by behaving in this way they probably underling Lee created the brexit party they they created you and they helped you very much in this respect I know that you didn't plan you didn't extend to participate in these European elections but I am sorry to say you have to without you without my good friend Nigel Faraj without without the whole brexit part in the British I'm afraid the British indecisiveness would continue you have to win the elections and to get and to get a strong commitment date to influence the political stance political stances of your country Bonham last remark I have a relatively recent 27 years ago experience visa special exit some of you may remember 27 years ago Czechoslovakia was divided into two parts now Czech Republic and Slovakia it was a sort of exit it was a Slovak exit from the Czechoslovak Federation and I was the main organizer of that split of that order decision [Applause] always I always suggested that I could voluntarily come to London to help you with Swiss brexit but you didn't you didn't ask me however so you didn't ask me however but what we learn what we learn we learned one important thing we both the Czech part and the Slovaks wanted to find a solution that was totally different situations because in your case just Great Britain wanted to find a solution whereas the EU nomenklatura didn't want it so that was a big difference dear dear Roxy friends you should in the first coming elections you should give to all of us that you should give the whole rest of Europe a good example many Europeans need it and many are waiting for it don't disappoint them [Applause] to be here the zoo tonight thank you very much for your attention [Applause] [Applause] thank you thank you so much president Klaus for your support for your encouragement for your advice and for your wisdom and their ladies and gentlemen is proof of the international recognition of the brexit party proof of the opportunities that awaits us if we do a proper WTO brexit and so and so to our final speaker well well he needs looking introduction it's fair to say that he's had a fairly significant impact on British politics indeed he is without question the most influential politician but has had an influence on British history British politics since I believe the Second World War and I talked earlier about the courage of our candidates but the bravery and the courage of Nigel Farage over the last 25 years who has the original the original brexit area see the original brexit ear he has battled through abuse through vitriol through threats his own personal safety and that of his family and we saw that again just yesterday in wait hood absolutely Newcastle absolutely appalling behavior by sore losers so it's fantastic before we welcome him to the stage let's just watch Nigel in action on the screen Cameron said that leaflet through every home in the country which said whatever the results we will implement the decision I was elected back in 1999 20 years I've served over there 20 years that I've stood up in that chamber we woke up on that beautiful morning of the 24th of June 2016 and despite everything despite what we've been told we voted to leave and what we've seen ever since then is the most willful persistent deliberate betrayal of the greatest democratic exercise ever made in the history of this country it is a disgrace whether you promise fight both of those parties when it went into British law yes mrs. May I admit I made a mistake I did not believe that a vicar's daughter could be so willfully duplicitous with the British nation as you've been if we win these elections and win them big that something starts to matter again a word that we actually made huge sacrifices twice in the twentieth century to defend the very notion of democracy it is democracy itself will has been betrayed we must fight for it when the two mainstream parties tell us trust us we will deliver never again will we trust them what we've got to do is take off a two-party system but it's letting down this country we've got to take along because I'm part of change politics for good you with us please welcome to the stage Nigel Farage hello Wow you know we only launched this party five and a half weeks ago and in that space of time we've managed to assemble this fantastic team of candidates to put before the British electorate we've managed we've managed in five and a half weeks to go to the head of the opinion polls that's not bad is it we've managed in five and a half weeks not just to frighten the establishment oh no they're not frightened they're absolutely terrified [Applause] but perhaps most important of all what we've managed to do in those five and a half weeks since we launched in that factory in Coventry is we've managed to give millions and millions of people in this country who were frustrated upset angry on the point of saying they may never engage with the democratic process again so sick to death were they of the shenanigans in Westminster and you know what we've given them in the brexit party we've given them hope optimism and belief in this country and even ever-growing process but it's worth it's worth reminding ourselves of why we're here I mean I can scarcely believe that I'm here 20 years I've been in that European part of it 20 years of getting up one or two of you may have seen my speeches I don't know 20 years of getting up giving my always helpful constructive speeches over there oh now I think mr. Van Rompuy rather enjoyed it really 20 years of taking on him and mr. Jung Curran Donald Erskine Michel barley and/or I've got better than that giver hofstadt 20 years of doing my bit but 20 years of trying to do myself out of a job 20 years of being mature key that always wanted to vote for Christmas so I never imagined I'd be standing in these elections and come to think of it if I've given them a tough time over there what do they get when it comes you to do when she gets there they won't know what hit him they won't know what hit him but look the reason we're here is very simple we had that realm doing the best for eat soup we're doing this is because after that astonishing referendum when remember project fear was in full mode wasn't it we had that Chancellor George Osborne telling us that half a million jobs would go immediately there'd be an emergency budget taxes would go up house prices would crash foreign direct investment would cease to come into our nation trade would collapse plagues of black locusts would descend upon our land we had that then they even shipped in that they thought this was their big card I won't say trump card but he did come from America and he was called President Obama remember that our best ally in the world and their leader came and told us we'd go to the back of the queue if we voted for brexit we had of course we were lucky though lucky in the referendum that we have a state broadcaster in this country well I'm sure you're all delighted paying your 150 pounds a year to the BBC aren't you I'm surprised I mean personally I'm a particular fan of the Andrew Marr show I can tell you but despite media bias despite project fear despite it all we voted for brexit and we did so by a large and clear majority of 1.3 million and remember remember that David Cameron do you remember David Cameron David Cameron told us in that leaflet that went through every door in the land that our will would be implemented and then we had a general election in which both the conservative and Labour Party's promised us that if we voted for them they would honour the result of the referendum and 498 members of parliament voted for article 50 and it went into British law and it said we would leave the European Union on march on March thank you we would leave the EU on March the 29th with or Oh deal with or without a deal and that became part of British law and I have to tell you that I made without doubt the biggest political mistake of my life because I believed it was going to happen I believe they would deliver I'm sure most of you believed they would deliver because after all we are supposed to be a democratic country and yet as the months went by from mrs. May coming back with her checkers deal all the way through her constant rejections by the House of Commons oh and by the way have you seen what she's done this afterno I mean just when you think she can't sink any lower she comes back and surprises as I mean now she surrendered eventually everything surrendered to the customs union surrendered the single market rolls oh and the icing on the cake if you vote for her deal there's a chance of having a second referendum if there are any conservatives out there who are you're a skeptic who believe in the democratic process they were half thinking about voting for Mays Conservatives on Thursday in the European elections you've just been told you are not wanted but I know where they can go the brakes their party no I I watched I watched this slow-motion betrayal and I realized as March the 29th approached that we simply weren't going to leave and I thought of myself I've spent I was unbelievable really but I've spent 25 years of my life campaigning for us to be a free and independent country [Applause] I thought through much of it that I might become the patron saint of lost causes but I kept on going and having seen having seen what Parliament was going to do and by the way both parties here are as guilty as each other make no doubt about that so I had a decision to make would I would I allow myself to simply be rolled over by the political process or would I stand up and fight and I decided I would stand up and fight and that is why I founded the brexit party it's why we're here today [Applause] yeah [Applause] well I'm pleased that you're pleased but clearly not everybody is pleased I said to you earlier that the establishment were terrified and of course what they cannot believe what they cannot comprehend is that we have managed in the space of five and a half weeks to get over a hundred thousand people to pay 25 pounds online and to give money to the brexit party wasn't achievement that is in this country but not content with that not content with that they've decided to go on an all-out attack and yesterday we saw Gordon Brown attack attack the potential financial probity of the brexit party units right Gordon Brown let's work this out for a moment Joey Gordon Brown attacked our financial probity this is the man who say he did well down your what really you should be up here ready sir Gordon Brown the man who sold who told the world the dates on which he would do it and sold 400 metric tons of gold at two hundred and seventy dollars an ounce Thank You Gordon Brown for that but we're still Gordon Brown who along with Tony Blair how does their chief fundraiser how does their chief fundraiser Lord levy when and I'll try my best not to be sued for libel here when shall we say an astonishing number of labour donors went to the House of Lords and he has the effrontery to attack us for our funding it's outrageous please you behave like that and of course surprise surprise an hour after Gordon Brown a taxes guess what happens the Electoral Commission announced that they're going to mount a dawn raid on the offices of the brexit party whatever just tell you this for a fact all right we have a team of four professionally trained accountants looking after the money we're not stupid we know what to do and last week last week we met the Electoral Commission and they said our processes were correct they had no concerns indeed we said to them would you come into our offices and look at our systems they said no we haven't got time before the election we asked them to put in writing we asked them to put in writing the fact that our process of book were good but they didn't decide to take us up on it and blow me down in turn up this morning Elcom at 10 o'clock this morning now it was decided that I might not be the best person to greet them that was a good call so Richard got the job and can I tell you after seven hours today in the office the Electoral Commission have not found a single misdeed by the brexit party [Applause] so let's let's make it clear shall we let's make it clear to the conspiracy theorists to those who think somehow the Russians are funding us let's make it clear the media where our money comes from would you please put up your hand if you've paid your 25 pounds to be there we are that or I better do it as well of no really that is where our money is coming from it's coming from this growing mass movement of people who are excited energetic optimistic and realize we will get brexit but we just have to stand up and fight for it again [Applause] Turo there are other aspects there are other aspects of the campaign that have been slightly unpleasant but I'm not even going to dignify the behavior of that your bow yesterday by talking about it we will simply move on but why vote for the brexit party on Thursday well I think this is now about far more than leaving the European Union this is now about a bigger more fundamental question of democracy are we are we a democratic country do we trust our political class and how do you think the rest of the world now sees us mrs. may by her constant abject surrenders to these unelected bully boys in Brussels has humiliated our nation and I've had enough of it let's stand up and be proud of who we are vote vote for the brexit party this Thursday and if the brexit party can win this Thursday and if the brexit body can win well this Thursday we put back on the table for that new deadline of the 31st of October Halloween trick or treaty but we if we win this election well we put back on the table for that date our exit on WT o terms [Applause] if we win if we win we win big on Thursday we will kill off any prospect of Parliament forcing a second referendum upon us because they know they won't lose if we vote for the brexit party and we win on Thursday we demand given that democratic mandates that people out of this team people who've got competence people who've been in business people who do deals for a living unlike the career politicians on our front benches and we demand that we are part of that negotiating team to make sure that we do leave the European Union on the 31st of October we must be part of that process and if we win if we win well we win big on Thursday there are a couple of really nice little bonuses that will be attached the first is we will quickly get rid of the worst most duplicity and I still disagree with that Widdecombe she's not the worst Prime Minister since Anthony Eden she's the worst Prime Minister in the history of our nation she'll be God and you never know you never know given the way we are smashing the Labour vote in Wales and in the Midlands and in the north of England you never though a bit brexit win may get rid of Jeremy Corbyn as well how about that [Applause] what a deal full a deal buy one get one free how about that but I will never I will never make the same mistake that I made again I keep being asked well what will happen when the Conservative Party have a new leader what will happen if somebody like Boris becomes leader Boris Johnson said that mrs. Mays new treaty would lead us to vassalage it would lead us to be a slave state in fact I thought steady on a beneath using language even stronger than I am what's going on here and then what happened what happened on the third time mrs. Mae brought it back to the House of Commons despite all he'd said and all he done he voted for it what I've learnt what I've learned is you cannot trust the political class in this country we must not trust the political class in this country [Applause] and that actually actually the two-party system doesn't work anymore politics is broken somebody us the brexit party has the challenge and break that two-party system that is what we have to do and we need major reform major reform we got to get rid of a House of Lords that is full of 700 of Mr Blair Mr Blair and Mr Cameron's cronies oh and the electoral commission filled up with political policemen and women all of whom are remainders all of whom are part of that Westminster establishment I think they should all be replaced and more representative of this country we need we need we need wholesale political change we're the only party fighting this European election with a clear distinctive message we are saying we must leave we must leave on the 31st of October this year we must leave with or without any form of Trade Agreement because we demand nothing less than this country being a self-governing independent proud nation who governs herself chooses her own alliances and friendships around the world and look at the advantages we have 2.4 billion people living in the Commonwealth let's reach out to them let's reach out to a bigger world and anyone who thinks anybody thinks the what I'm asking is for you to go out and protest on Thurs maybe think I'm asking you to go out and stick up two fingers to the establishment on Thursday well there's good reason of course to stick up two fingers to the establishment but actually I've not asked you to do that I'm asking you to vote for us on Thursday as the first step to fundamentally changing politics for good in this country we are attempting we are attempting and it is by far the most ambitious thing I've ever done we are attempting a peaceful political revolution in this country it is needed it is needed it is needed with us thank you thank you [Applause] I did I think we can safely say ladies and gentlemen the training has paid off without question he's back and he wit plans to win now we've just got time for a few questions we could still have a bit of fun in politics it's a serious business but Marlene from the edgeware word she's put 40 quid on Nigel being the next prime minister and she wants to collect her winnings now I'll let Nigel get his breath back question for Anne Stephen from Epsom says what happens if the Prime Minister currently what happens if she gets some form of dodgy deal through with today's additional amendments and changes and any thoughts microphone gesture well it really is terribly simple a dodgy deal is not a brexit and if what they give us is a dodgy deal then we will make sure that we play dodgems too and we get them out [Applause] now this is a really good question that actually there hasn't been enough focus on and so our last Nigel about this John from Hampstead who says there's been no mention that remainders don't realize that staying in the EU means a more federal Europe and I think it is an important point to address oh it's not a federal Europe it's not a federal Europe it's actually a unitary centralized Europe run by people who the who you cannot vote for and you cannot remove it is fundamentally not just undemocratic it is we're not we're not and the black state party of all the political parties in Europe the brexit party is the clearest we are not anti European in any way at all we love Europe we love his people we love his countries we love his culture [Applause] we we love his cheese's we love it's whines what I do in particular but we want a Europe of independence sovereign Democratic States provided states are democratic they will never ever fight each other let us lead the way as the United Kingdom for a Europe of friends a Europe of neighbors but not a Europe of Yonkers and Barney as these people right so ladies gentlemen that's all we've got time for this evening let's have you all on your feet if you're not already what are the ones Rexy once Rexy Roxy will do thank you very much for coming have a very safe trip home [Applause] vote for the brexit RC on May the 23rd and let's change politics for good [Applause]

viii the pound buying one dollar 26 cents into euro 13 the weather rain becoming mainly confined to the north and west of England tonight with more showers heading into Wales and the south towards dawn clearer across Scotland and Northern Ireland with a low of three tomorrow sunshine and downpours for most a high of 20 degrees from Global's newsroom for LBC Aziz Thank You Donald and good evening everybody well it was yesterday that I played you that clip from Joe brand which had appeared on a radio for comedy show in which she'd said that rather than showing milkshakes over certain prominent politicians who it was easy to hate perhaps people should throw battery acid and of course the fact she said put a politician that's come to the fore recently well it was pretty clearly aimed at me she said it was supposed to be a joke I have to say today there has been considerable outrage including the prime minister who spoken out and said politicians should be able to go about their work and campaign without harassment intimidation or abuse and in the course of the last hour we learned that the Metropolitan Police are indeed following up a series of complaints that have been made and they are looking into those allegations it's currently being assessed there are no arrests and inquiries are ongoing and tonight I want to ask you is it right that the police investigate these comments or was it just humor was it just an exercise in free speech and my argument very strongly is that free speech does have its limits an incitement to violence incitement to harm against the person is beyond the realms of what is acceptable I also believe that when it comes to humor there are some things that simply are not funny there is no funny side to it whatsoever and I do include acid attacks this horrendous new crime that has hit our streets in the last few years I think this is way beyond a joke and I'm going to start tonight by talking to somebody who has been the victim of an acid attack and it's Joe Davis he's 25 years old he suffered from an acid attack in slough Joe good evening and thank you for coming on to me with me on LBC hi good evening Joe you were attacked he was suffered burn left burnt and blistered as a result of an acid attack when you guess that's correct how long ago did this happened to you this would be two years next month right and and how much you still suffering from the effects of that so on a day-to-day basis the suffering will never stop hmm when you heard Joe Brown make these comments yesterday which rain pretty fairly and squarely at me but that's by the by the fact is she chose to sort of make a joke saying that milkshake should actually be battery acid how do you react to that I just find the common absolutely sickening for from what she said if you look in two ways actually done to victims of acid attacks and left with permanent scarring that's not just obviously the physical scars but the emotional and psychological scarring it causes as well I just think it's horrendous did it I mean did her talking about it sort of you know bring this whole thing back to you or do you live with it every day anyway I live with it every day anyway but for her to make a comment like that and being a public figure that she is and the the amount of people that follow her and listen to her alive it just promotes that they're throwing any sort of acid or throwing anything over someone is acceptable when it's not no absolutely do you have a message for Joe brand on the BBC who played this clip I've said to the mirror and I'll say it to you as well I would like for myself to be in a meeting with her with other acid attack victims to see em see what you to see if she can make a mockery in front of our faces you know hmm no I agree and do you think as a result of all of this Joe that it's right that the Metropolitan Police do look at what she said yesterday 100% today alone I've been looking at the laws and legislation about what you can and can't say and she from what as far as I'm aware she's broken two laws already okay Joe listen thank you be very brave coming on this show talking about the horrendous attack that happened to you and you've made your views very clear thank you very much indeed for coming on well that's Joe Davis 25 years old has been through the horrors of an acid attack and as he said he's living with it every single day his view is that she's broken a couple of laws and the police should follow this up you know my view is had this been said about anybody anybody else in politics I think this story would have exploded yesterday as it is it's taken 24 hours for it to get where it's got to and that's because actually you know in many ways I've been seen as fair game for a lot of this over the years but I really did feel yesterday enough was enough and that's why I said what I said you know can you imagine and I'm not gonna name a name it would be wrong but let's say we took somebody prominently on the remains side of the argument who perhaps had broken their promise to their constituents and you know what if someone said oh wouldn't it be funny if you saw them in a pub to strap on a lager over them even that would be unacceptable even that would be unacceptable but to talk about throwing battery acid I just think the whole thing was disgusting it was beyond the pale irresponsible of the BBC to do what they did and I thought was very interesting was that the Prime Minister went on to say in a statement that she wanted the BBC to explain why it was even broadcast and she did that because of course this was a pre-recorded program live on air as we all know here and I hope he see all sorts of things can happen that you'd rather you wish hadn't but it was a pre-recorded programme and just to emphasize the BBC themselves have defended her comments saying their humour Joe Brown herself was doorstep by a couple of news or news organizations that had a home in Dulwich and and she then spoke at a literary festival this afternoon and basically she hasn't chosen to apologise so there are a couple of issues here you know one is is it right the police are investigating but as a subset to that you know the BBC spend 177 million pounds every single year on light entertainment and comedy paying people like Joe Brand to appear in you know bake-off programs and all sorts of comedy and comment programs and I think there are some real questions here not just about Joe Brown's comments but about the BBC's editorial line given you know that Danny Baker and all right the tweet he put out was was really offensive and vile wrong at every level but after decades of service with the BBC he was sacked for that whereas I wonder what will happen to Joe Brown so come on folks tell me you know is it is it okay to say this in a line of comedy is it fine oh three four five six oh six oh nine 73 or like me do you think it was an incitement to violence and it's right actually that the police look at this text two eight four eight five oh and tell me do you agree freedom of speech does come with responsibility there are lines beyond which free speech is not acceptable and I'm arguing that any form of incitement is beyond the realms of free speech if you agree disagree please tweet using the hashtag pharaohs and LBC at RBC amicus Facebookers watching us live you're never short of comments either let's go to Philip who's a first-time caller from Surbiton good evening Philip how are you I am well so the Metropolitan Police have made this statement within the last hour are they right to do so first of all I think it's important to say you're definitely not fair game I don't agree of you as much but you represent a significant amount of opinion in considering we were marking d-day last week and the point about fighting for everyone's rights and opinion you know it's totally unacceptable from that perspective hmm I also think that John Brown should show more contrition and apologize to you but because you know there's a speedball atmosphere out there and battery acid is a terrible idea just heard Joe's witness and all of us have got friends and family who live in London or delivery riders and you know these are really big dangers at the moment so that's one point but I think that you know life doesn't live on ever recorded comedy she's an edgy comedian and she may occasionally say things that she shouldn't and there is an editorial responsibility to actually make sure that something like that doesn't go out and in some ways afford her some protection as well just like on have I got news for you lawyers absolutely and if you take the family Baker situation it's slightly different because he wrote the material he produced it and he distributed it himself this is through the BBC and there should be safeguards so I think she owes you an apology but I think responsibility is really with the editorial and production stars yeah I mean that was very much the point the Prime Minister was making – you know that actually how on earth could the BBC have allowed this to go out given that it was pre-recorded and I wonder if in it you know perhaps the reason she won't apologized to me is she seems to have this air of moral superiority that her view of the world is is infinitely better and more virtuous than those with a different point of view and I my feeling and you may agree or disagree with us Philip but my feeling is ever since that referendum there been some very prominent remain as in public life who've given the impression that leave voters are stupid thick ignorant bigots and that the view of remain errs is superior and laterally and that leads I think that leads to a slight breakdown in the Democratic respect for the other side of an argument well I think graphic respect is really important on both sides and if I say in my own family we're completely divided on polite to each other good good and I think that it's really important that we remember it on all sides I would imagine that an a super for example might say that she's had some other personal attacks and so on but I think the sad thing is that we're all part of one country we have different beliefs and it doesn't matter how big the issues we should maintain respect and I think you know actually I said it shouldn't be joked about it's terrible because people it changes people's lives work at their attack and that's not acceptable can I just say one more thing go man I thank you in the Nepal adji and I met around about nine years ago and very kindly to me about and I came to see you in Brussels the world I was supposed to thank you them but I didn't pleased to know that it went towards the distinction thank you very very good to catch up with you and thank you very much indeed for your call now disagreement here it was a joke get a life Nigel are you gonna check all comedy or only when it's aimed at you let me tell you had this been said about anybody I would have said it was truly an utterly appalling and I tell you what I certainly would not allow anybody in an organization but I'm responsible for all run to make comments like this they'd be out on their ear immediately and I absolutely mean that some things are beyond a joke throwing battery acid isn't funny in any circumstances it is in my opinion an incitement to violence if like the last texture you think I'm wrong tell me why on a three four five six oh six eight nine seven three you're listening to the Roger Ferris show here at LBC it's 6:15 and time for news headlines will Lisa Rosie's Boris Johnson says he's delighted but there is a long way to go in the Tory leadership contest despite comfortably

at LBC using the hashtag Faraj on LBC well the police aren't going to investigate the Metropolitan Police say they believe result of complaints that have been made not made by me by the way I don't know by whom but multiple people on social media say they have made a complaint about this there be no arrests enquiries are ongoing is this a good use of police resources and time given how stretched they are in London that's a very very fair point to make I think my view on it is that something should be said because I do think incitement of violence is absolutely beyond the pale in every single regard Mathew an asura story says I vote it remain I don't like you or your politics but you're absolutely running what you're saying about this battery acid issue Nigel it was a joke to shock the police don't have the resources for this I'm sure there were some that will think that but I think if a message gets sent that this is unacceptable I think that personally would be a good thing on Twitter I don't think Joe brands comments are a police matter but I do think the BBC and other TV broadcasters should not allow on to their programs in future as a result of her crassness and the fact she isn't funny in the Joe Brown wants to ring in to defend herself in her comment she can we'll certainly take her call oh three four five six oh six oh nine seven 3.now I did listen last night late on LBC to this debate that was beginning to rage over this and Kevin Maguire from the mirror came while I was very critical of me and in fact there are one or two who picked up on on Kevin McGuire's Commons and it runs like this if they this is a quote from me and I'll tell you where in a moment if they don't deliver brexit I will Don cocky pick up a rifle and head towards the front lines whoever could be so were you not inciting violence double standards Nigel so I did say that I said it actually funny enough at a private event an evening with Nigel Farage event it was a comedy event and I meant it metaphorically I will go back into battle if they don't deliver brexit and whoever you are that sent that and Kevin Maguire if you're listening there is absolutely no parallel to me saying that at a private event and the words I used and what was said you know on Radio 4 and broadcast of a nation I would argue there is no parallel what so ever leann in Loughborough says I usually find Joe brands dry humor funny however what she said was really ill thought out especially with the recent spate of acid attacks yeah and also Lee Anne one of the reasons why for almost the first time ever you've got quite a little politicians even the Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons supporting me is there has been a change in the atmosphere you know there really really has I've had this since 2013 you know a constant threat of attack but it's now began to hit politicians on a much wider basis and so did there was a general feeling I have yet to hear anybody who's an elected MP to stand up and defender is it right the police are involved in this Darius is a first-time caller from Hackney good evening Darius good evening Nigel welcome so what do you make of it well I like to say I didn't agree with any type of political violence so I wasn't you know I'm a on the left I'm a corking support so I don't believe in you know the milk shaking of politicians is not necessary and it's what you know actually say in this environment at the moment it can escalate quite quickly having said that you know Joe brand is a comedian and I don't really think that her comments can be classified as incitement to violence because it's not a specific threat she's encouraging if she was saying you know to her listeners you know I encourage you to go out and right wing politician she said it was her fantasy there she's so keen on it it was her fantasy that it would happen she's a comedian and we releasing comedy and free speech in that way if it's being the other way around you know people unless are often accused of being snowflakes nigel darius i really don't think so at all and listen I'm big enough and ugly enough to have had all sorts of things said and written about me I've been cartoon I did Lampoon and mostly I have to tell you you know I find it quite funny it doesn't worry me in the least it's part of the territory but for the sake not just of me but of common decent debate in this country I felt something had to be said yesterday that's why I chose normally I ignore all sorts of things that are said but you say this is the Malema colony so had she said oh no far better to have shot him or stabbed him would that have been okay as well I mean I'm asking you so she was advocating the throwing of acid hatches it don't waste a milkshake just shoots him would that still have been funny look um you asked whether I find it funny I don't find the battery acid jokes funny okay what would it have been acceptable to say stab or shoot because it's thankfully not very much different if the context it's the context it doesn't matter what the the tool you're she's you see references it's the context in which she's making the joke if she's actually encouraging people to go out on the streets and attack politicians then yet you can make an ugly nuts and incitement she's saying something in general to be shocking it wasn't a specific threat it's just a place the police time but my second point Nigel is also about consistency and I feel that you're making their big deal of this and the media is picking up on it because it's a left-wing party meeting that said this now there are regular so are there any other barriers Corbin all the time and I don't see you being picked up in the media just this week Darius the ex you're missing the privacy threatens said in a speech that Corbin should be sacrificed Darris if Darius you are missing you are missing the point here politicians are receiving an increased level of threats it's happening all over the place all right particular particularly through social media and it's vile and it's nasty and one of the problems Darius with it is a worry in the future it'll put good quality people off coming into public life but here's the point but here's the point Daris this was broadcast by the BBC everybody in this country with a television in their house is taxed 150 pounds a year to have that TV in their front room nearly all the comedians Darius on the BBC are left-wing and if that had been said about Jeremy Corbyn that have been up an outrage much more quickly than there was here will you condemn the comments of course and I condemn I condemn all of these comments but there is a different boil darius darius this was broadcast on the BBC this was broadcast on the BBC do you not see the difference a couple of thousand people or whether it's broadcast to the nation and you see no difference well it's about the number it's about three reaches and often things that are on YouTube or Twitter reach a far greater audience than what's on the BBC I haven't heard this dope rankly because I don't this and the BBC often because I don't afree I don't I don't agree with lots of their editorial decisions that they make but I do what you see by knife and I follow you know lots of stuff on Twitter and I saw these these comments made against covering another you know the countdown lady close to the picture on her Twitter feed the 60 million for 60,000 followers story and said that that Culver should be taken out you're all awful what do you see what do you say you're not good at listening Darris we have one more go what do you see as Ben limits to free speech and humor what are the limits well I do believe that there should be some limits and that is specific threats to violence incitement of one can I don't speak okay all right guys darris you've made your point I fundamentally disagree with you but you have made your point on Twitter are you saying it's okay to say what you like privately then says mark but the point I'm making is I talked about metaphorically going back into battle no more than that all right that is very different to what was said and an actually mark there is a difference isn't there in private conversation and what is said and broadcast by the BBC of course there are differences there I defy anyone to say there aren't let's get Oliver a first-time caller from five good evening Oliver pleasure to speak to put here good so what do you think of Joe Browns comments are they acceptable and is it a waste of police time well I mean I'm a big sort of advocate for free speech and it's one of those things I feel most passionate about and I mean there's no parallels between what you said and what Joe said you know yours was clearly a metaphor you know you're not gonna go up with a rifle to the house of the Parliament there was a no comparison but I mean I really like Joe though I mean what she said it can't be taken out of context you know she she was provoking violence inciting violence and there I think that's where the line is between free speech and then incitement of violence yes Oliver that's my feeling listen I'm if I'm for free speech you know I mean I I really get very upset by the prevailing culture that people are not allowed to have diversity of opinion that we're all supposed to have a received opinion on whatever the issue is and I'm all for challenging pushing the boundaries of argument and debate I always have been I always will be but I I'm with you I think I think there are some things the thirsty aren't funny and secondly any form of incitement is beyond the acceptable limits of free speech so Oliver you and I are at one on that we'll talk a little bit in a moment about Boris Johnson's day he's had a pretty good day but for now you're listening to the Roger Ferris show here at I'll be seeing it's 6:30 and time for the news release our Aziz Boris Johnson says he's delighted

show tweet at LBC using the hashtag Faraj on LBC let's try some good news shall we ask them master dat it's a that said Athens site in South Wales had already created 200 jobs we learned today five hundred and fifty more people to be there and they're gonna be producing the Aston Martin DBS it'll be in full production by 2020 that's good news and much needed because of course we had huge coverage of the Ford engine plant in Bridgend closing not so long ago and that's gonna mean the loss of 1700 jobs at the end of 2020 say it's not all bad news tough times for the car industry it's not all bad news worth pointing out that the boss of Ford said the closure of that plant had nothing to do with brexit so let's not be depressed about brexit the whole time now a big day in the conservative leadership race and of course heading on who's gonna be our next prime minister first it was 13 then 2 dropped out then it was 11 then it was 10 and now I think it's 7 Thea wash what lBCC's political editor is that right yes it is Nigel good evening gay in the conservative leadership race mark Harper the former Chief Whip former Immigration Minister dropping out he didn't manage to secure enough votes to make it to the second round of the ballot estimate vary the form of work of pension secretary she also dropped out she was actually bottom of the pole with only 10 votes not reaching the 17 required and also make it through and then Andrea led some the former House of Commons leader she again failed to meet the requisite number of votes and does not progress through to the next round the other story Nigel of course was the success of Boris Johnson I'd been speaking to his team this afternoon there cock-a-hoop because their man secured a hundred and fourteen votes yeah he just needs to keep that level going that level of support going and he will make it to the final two to go before the membership and unless he faces Michael Gove his team are confident that he will become the next prime minister so the next round of voting is going to be on Tuesday Tuesday yes and it's a weaker is it likely over the weekend that some candidates will drop out and coalesce around others they could do and everybody this afternoon there there aids are spinning that they're going to try and fall force the issue to a vote on Tuesday that they can pick up momentum but if you look at the numbers Nigel for Sajid Javid format Hancock from Rory Stewart and for Dominic Raab they simply didn't secure enough votes to make it through to the next round because on Tuesday in order to have progressed to the third ballot each MP needs to have 33 votes in their favor there's 32 supporters and then of course they will vote for themselves so going on that base it's only Michael Gove Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson would make it through this afternoon nobody is publicly stating that they would be willing to drop out and see their support go elsewhere okay promotion deed good day for Boris Johnson back to the Joe Brown comments of yesterday ones that I think went way beyond the bounds of acceptable free speech and was certainly not funny and any acid attacks are funny in any way at all the Metropolitan Police have got involved they are investigating is that the right thing to do given how busy the police are I think actually it is I think I think a marker needs to be put down as to what can and cannot be said in this country we have got a very very toxic political environment and I think that's because people like Joe brands say the things they say now some with deep prejudice against me disagree you're a hypocrite Faraj you've caused division and hate don't be a snowflake and shut up I have never ever ever said anything anything like what Joe brand has said not even approaching what Joe brand has said I'd have been put in the Tower of London if I had I simply haven't done it and I reject what you say Annie and Norwich says when I first heard of this joke about battery acid I did not immediately think of it being directed at you but still thought it disgraceful oh well that's a relief anyway Molly says it only took one person to throw a milkshake and then it was followed by others that's true actually what if acid attacks were next well let's try not to even hope that could happen but Molly we know actually in the world we're living in almost anything is possible and that's the point Adrian is a new caller from water Levin in Hampshire good evening dear Adrian hello hello what can i first of all say that I absolutely disagree with throwing anything milkshakes or anything on anyone whatsoever yes I how much you disagree with them let's get that out of the way one of my first point is that you seem to think that Joe grand comments were referring to you I think she's more referring to people I told me Robertson who are on the further right you are well I paid really no I don't like I don't know you're wrong I think you're you're taking it a bit personally I don't think she was referring to you necessarily I think she was saying more than and Tommy Robinson did stamp your parting didn't wait I tell you why you're wrong because actually you know what she said she talked about people who come to the fore recently and I don't think given that Tommy Robinson got less than 2% in the European elections and what probably never stab a public office ever again he couldn't scribe him as Kevin come to the fore I think I think I think we know what I think we know what she was referring to Hadrian I tell you what let's let I tell you what let's listen to it together and let's see just stay there a second it's certain characters are being thrown to the fore and they're very very easy to hate and I'm kind of thinking why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid so agent that was it and okay that's fatter and she said immediately after that which you haven't played okay okay okay let's play let's play stay there stay there stay there we're gonna play it certain unpleasant characters are being thrown to the fore and they're very very easy to hate and I'm kind of thinking why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid but I think milkshakes are pathetic sorry so agent it's actually it's actually a fantasy basically admitting it's a joke she's not going to do it and she's not inciting anyone to do it so he's a fantasy not something that you want to happen yeah she's not inciting other people but what she just says she says it's my fantasy Adrienne I tell you what whether or not you've been on the show I'm sure you've been on that show before and you know it's satire and they say cutting-edge comedy things and she did almost apologize that for it straight away I think this desire to get a sack and stuff is just completely out of proportion these super outrage I think I think proportion is absolutely key with all of these things I think she went way beyond the acceptable bounds of humor agent and certainly way beyond the acceptable bounds of free speech that's my view a debate on this I mean come on Adrienne free speech does have its limits doesn't it there's good taste and free speech yeah there's a line yes I absolutely agree with you there's a line between good taste but I don't think Joe Brown crossed it there and you know there's lots of other things people in prominent positions have said they get away with it alright okay Adrian that's your point of view I don't agree but you've made your you know you've made it very very clear Jonathan and Essex says a few years back Jeremy Clarkson said public sector workers should be shot and he was made to apologize okay everyone in the audience that laughed are as bad isn't it funny throwing stuff at people anyone well Jennifer it's funny I think sometimes if you're there at a comedy type of hven people laugh automatically and then afterwards think themself gosh I wish I hadn't laughed and I'm certain a few people felt like that let's go to mouth the tip that'll speak to Craig here's a new caller hi Craig I am okay so you know am I getting too upset about this should I just laugh it off Craig when things like this get said absolutely not at the end of the day she's a public figure and she used the medium of the public service broadcasting much to encourage violence which in itself is a criminal offense yeah well that's what I think and and that is exactly what I think and interestingly you know we had we had Joe Davis on earlier on the battery acid victim and he feels that too so what should the Met do Craig in your view is completely unacceptable because where does it end we've gone to a stage in a way where people such as yourselves I don't agree with Tommy well Benson's politics but at the same time he like everybody else is inside of the free speech and simply you know him for anybody else to be attacked with with any objects be a milkshake definitely not acid I mean that's completely beyond the realms of anything that could even be considered yes I I have to say I can't disagree with you and but we do get people on we do get people on who think it's perfectly acceptable I'm actually think it's funny but some things are beyond human I thank you for your call and your point Joe brand should be investigated by the police we live in dangerous times there are too many angry people out there freedom of speech should come with responsibility regardless if you or comedian or not says Mary in Ealing I agree with that the oldest thing to the right if our show exclusively on LBC it's 6:45 and time for news headlines will Lisa Rosie's Boris Johnson says he's delighted but there's a long way to go in the Tory leadership contest despite comfortably

on LBC call oh three four five six oh six oh nine seven three the Metropolitan Police are going to investigate Joe Brown's comments that rather than showing Milkshakes but certain politicians who come to the fall recently and who it's easy to hate they should throw battery acid said she wouldn't do it herself but it was her fantasy and I suggest you if someone says it's their fantasy it's what they would like to see happen but is this a waste of police time or is this really an issue now Callum for Manchester has sent me an SMS I always can't believe it but this is what he said people should have the right to say what they want in a free society this was a joke and clearly a comedian exercising her right for freedom of speech free speech does not have limits otherwise you don't believe in freedom at all Callum from Manchester that I think is the most irresponsible measures I've ever read out on LBC please do call us on Oh three four five six oh six oh nine seven three of course free speech has limits and the key limit is the incitement of violence I really really believe that strongly whilst the program recorded in advance if so the BBC should be held responsible the answer to that that I get on Twitter is yes and it must have gone through all sorts of editorial checks and the BBC clearly thought it was perfectly acceptable as indeed they still do today and that's why the Prime Minister in her statement very much focused here on the BBC it raises I think some very big questions about the BBC David is a first-time caller from Aberdeen welcome to the show David welcome to LBC hi Nigel and I saw the report on the news tonight you know with the Prime Minister investigating this and well commenting and the police investigating yeah okay yeah all I really want the soundest Nigel was you know I'm a long-term post-traumatic stress disorder sufferer so I'm sorry to hear that and yeah and basically when I saw what happened to yourself for the milkshake him and a couple of other people you know I I sort of automatically knew myself what that would have done to me you know and I really felt for you because I thought myself you know I I didn't see anything funny in that at all no and so for me not at all for what I mean I used to laugh at Joe brand in the past but I think you know she's just totally out of order on this you know whether it's Nigel Roger it's me Nigel you know throwing something over it you know anybody and you know nobody knows what a is but you know I just think myself people have just you know got the wrong wrong approach on all of this now I don't know David I'm sick to death of overpaid left-wing BBC comedians you know constantly putting out one side of an argument that they believe to be funny but this is overstep the mark David can I ask were you are you a military veteran yeah yeah X and have you a quick question have you received the kind of care and follow-up support that you've needed it's been pretty good Nigel but it's you know it's it's a journey it's a long journey Nigel you know you know something that happens over a course of years Nigel doesn't you know change over of course of hours you know so no I think you know me and you know well David I wish it was you know I wish I wish you well and I thank you for calling and making that point let's head to Birmingham and speak to teri is another first-time caller height hello there higher so I hadn't heard actual recording of what Joe Bradley sprays up to that right and what what we say everywhere has consequences and if you think of this country where the attacks a battery battery acid in certain Tino's users on through the roof we've got keys walking around with water pistols with battery acid in which they're taking people's vehicles and taking people's motorbikes for her to use such a public forum to say what she said I find absolutely way beyond what's acceptable because if you brought yourself you had the milkshakes wrote of you in that split second that milkshake hit you that could have been anything and the damage that that would have caused and what you but you have very few of people very susceptible so you've got in the news milkshake over you Joe Brown saying she'd like to throw but arrested over people and it doesn't matter whether they're politicians on that it's over anybody it's unacceptable to do that and there are are people that are open to influence and are open to a narrative that all this is going into their heads and people are very susceptible think why do you know what get outta me local Halfords I'm gonna get myself some battery acid I'm silly in a container I go to a political meeting I'm gonna throw it over somebody that no it's Anna renders thought Terry and I can tell you Terry that I've had I've heard drinks thrown over me I've been hit over the head with placards I've been hit over the head with an egg I've been attacked time and time and time again physically so I am actually pretty used to all of this but I do think we're in a new place I do think it is becoming actually much more dangerous than it was and what she said was at best irresponsible Terry thank you for your point of view going up to Scotland to five to speak to John another first-time caller welcome John hi so the police are gonna be involved I hope they're not gonna spend too much time on this but do you suspect it could be a waste of resources yeah I do I think you know she's a comedian I think you know whether you think it's tasteless or not is up to you but I don't think she's broken the law I think if you were to investigate her you'd have to investigate yourself as well go what for name one thing John I've said well the fact that you know you took a you said after Joe Cox is murder and on the night of the referendum result that not a shot had been fired I found that extremely offensive you know someone had died during that referendum well what I meant John what I meant John was the independence movements normally follows civil wars all right and I and I did apologize immediately because of the context of that but that was what I meant and I apologized immediately John for a lack of taste all right this woman this woman this woman when she's asked whether she'll apologize will not apologize at all and nor will the BBC there's quite a big difference there John I would suggest if an issue of taste you you know you apologized you define you know you said that you were sort of apologize but it's not an issue it wasn't forced to apologize that's perfectly happy to apologize well why didn't you know well there's other things you've done that you haven't apologized for oh well you know that massive poster of all those you know immigrant languages just what do you mean John a photograph a photograph I can't apologize for the truth John can i well you're playing on people here that was you know that was so should we get to raise the truth and pretend it's not happening it wasn't you know that's not that's not how it's happening you John you name me one thing you name me one thing that I've ever said in 20-plus years that is either insightful or getting anywhere near what Joe Brown said yesterday please well you know I think I think you've made it just pure prejudice from you John is it no no not all I think you know you're the way you've acted in the way you and gradually incited bigotry and fear of foreigners well I have certainly encouraged the spread of a disease called democracy John that's what I tried to do John thank you John I've got to go we're out of time John thinks Joe brand good Nigel Farage bad when it takes all sorts it's it's a democracy we live particularly here at LBC with free speech but there are limits to it I'm gonna be back on Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. at 10:00 p.m. tonight is Thom Swarbrick but up next it's e'en doubt Nigel this'll make you laugh change UK have decided to change their name again to the independent group for change oh it's gonna be a rip-roaring I suppose it begs the question if the independent group will now sue them or change their name good luck cheers Nigel thank you very much now Boris Johnson got far more votes than anyone expected today is it all over bar a bit of shouting should the Tories now just row in behind him crown him and have done with it or do you think that it's important there is a proper contest over the next month so both Boris Johnson and the second can

now 80% of our trade is with Great Britain and only 20% is with the Republic of Ireland so a customs barrier down the Irish Sea is far more important to us than Norland than the border with the Republic of Ireland A's but is anything going to change the EU certainly not gonna budge on any backstop amendment well that may well be they say that but I used to be in the European Parliament for 10 years and then a Council of Europe for seven years and I knew the Europeans always negotiated right up to midnight so one keeps one's fingers crossed however one's impression is that the DP are making some progress with the government and that they may well may well possibly support the government why did you support them immediately because now have they not overplayed their hand because we're now it's possibly looking at a No Deal scenario which would be a disaster for Northern Ireland thanks to the DP not supporting tono and wouldn't be a No Deal and it wouldn't be a disaster when all around no way I told you 80% of our traders was Great Britain yes but no United Kingdom would be a disaster and surely not at all United Kingdom will survive and European Union or survive it will suffer of course United Kingdom will suffer a bit but the people who had suffered most would be the Republic of Ireland they would be annihilated economically if there's no deal they must have a deal I want to deal – I live on the border I don't want to see any barriers on the border and are neither Lord kill Clooney he told me that bricks it wouldn't undermine the Good Friday Agreement all for the creation of a united Ireland the Belfast agreement confirmed that Northern Ireland as part of the United Kingdom that's the dup message at this moment I'm not a member of the EU Pia fought the more than any other person's noble adult but they are correct on this one that is that Nolan R must be treated the same way as the rest of the United Kingdom that is consistent with the Belfast agreement the idea of having some kind of border down the Irish Sea which the Dublin government wants and which is negotiated privately with Barnier before it was even mentioned to the United kingdom government don't forget that it was done in a back room in the iris officers by Varney who walked over to the Irish two negotiators do you believe that breaks is stirred up the chances of reunification United Island oh not at all not at all that won't affect the union's majority Noland unis majority Norlin of one basic issue and that is maintaining the union between Great Britain and all around they will support that irrespective of whatever the settlement may be what do you make of the situation now John Bercow has just announced that he will veto the chance of a third vote on Theresa Mays deal unless it substantially changed where do you think we're heading now if we cannot have another vote on the withdraw agreement before were due to leave on the 29th of this month I think his decision which I understand and is just consistent with the rules of the House of Commons is nonetheless moving us towards a no deal it's a decision by the 29th of March this year and just finally your thoughts on the charts of a general election which would be not good for the DUP because it could obviously lose its chance to be playing playing a part in another government well it wouldn't do the DUP any harm at all around it would do great harm as a Conservative Party in Great Britain it would lose many seats to begin with we'll see that in May when we have the local elections in Great Britain the Conservatives will lose a lot of seats if they don't honor the referendum results about exiting the European Union

the mocha cast a fortnightly conversation with Jacob Riis MOG about the topics of the day welcome to another edition of the mock cast this is Paul Goodman editor of conservative home in conversation with Jacob Riis MOG Jacob I'm fighting myself ourselves in the position of the Red Queen wasn't as you know Alice in Wonderland who had to run to standstill because but the time our listeners hear this mock cast tomorrow morning I dare say more people will have resigned Scott man resigned as a PPS this morning I wanted to ask you these resignations are they being coordinated not by me and not as far as I know I think what is happening is that people have been reflecting on the white paper on the checkers deal and they've been speaking to their constituents I was campaigning on Saturday morning in the couch on High Street and everybody who came up to me was against the checkers deal some of them were against leaving the European Union altogether two of them actually and everyone else felt it wasn't delivering what had been voted for even if they had voted remain in the referendum they be come back to that I wrote I just wanted to stick with the resignations for a moment not coordinated by you and as far as you know not coordinated at all but they are coming out as a remarkably steady and spaced rate yes indeed but they're not coordinated by me and nobody said that he or she is coordinating them to me so if they are coordinated I don't know who is doing it all the customs bill amendments which again will have been tabled and debated and voted on by the time our listeners hear this mock cast could you just give a description because people will be listening to this tomorrow morning and catching up with the news could you explain what you're trying to do yes well the four amendments to some extent helped government policy two of them are completely in line with government policy that is to say the one that says that nor none and mustn't be in a different customs union from the rest of Great Britain that it must be part of a single United Kingdom whole that his government policy and it's just a suggestion that this should be in clear legislation rather than a government promise the next one that his government policy is on v80 and the v80 arrangements with the European Union a very particular and that that should not be replicated once we've left that again is government policy the third is not strictly government policy but is in line with what the government has done before in terms of Henry the eighth clauses so that should the government wish to remain in a customs union it would have to legislate for it with primary legislation in new Act of Parliament rather than using secondary means the fourth is not government policy but probably ought to be it's a demand for reciprocity so it says if we're collecting the –use taxes then EU Member States must collect our taxes when Goods enter the European Union and the reason for that is it will be very difficult to run an independent trade policy if any goods that come to us via the EU with a lot of goods coming into a spa the Low Countries particularly would be subject to any new tax and not a UK tax to make it very difficult to apply anti-dumping duties should we wish to do that and so this is to ask that what's good for the source for the goose is sauce for the gander would you have tabled these amendments were it not for the white paper the white paper has been very significant in the decision to table amendments because the real difficulty with checkers in the white paper is not so much the policy though I don't think the policy is a good policy but that it's moved so far away from what we were told would happen before and it's the issue of is it better to have things in legislation run simply rely on earlier speeches and so on because things have changed so much as you said a moment ago that these amendments are either in line with government policy or the government could adopt them but just to be clear doesn't sound to me as though you would have tabled them were it not for the white paper bill seeking a degree of surety that you weren't seeking before that is correct and let's therefore discuss the white paper the reaction to it can I just pick you up on something you said because I've seen your colleague Paul Masterson has tweeted that his association membership over the weekend has gone up now I'm sure that I mean we know from conservative home that lots of people are very angry and disappointed about this proposal because we're getting the emails that were intended to sit before CC HQ and which come through to us but could it be that party members are less angry about this than we think because a lot depends on the local MP so if the local MP is strongly opposed to the proposals in the background to them he or she tends to pick up the noise of opposition whereas and I've spoken to one or two who support the government wholeheartedly and support the white paper they claim they've had very little knocking on their door at all and there is always in any anecdotal evidence a confirmation of one's bias to some extent because people are on balance more likely to come up to you and say I agree with you completely than not I find it very interesting talking to some of my remain supporting fellow MPs who have been absolutely astonished by the reception they've got from their associations letters coming in from people that they respect and whose views they value saying that this is not what we voted for so I think it's wider than just leave em he's getting a leave reaction and what I was doing on Saturday morning wasn't speaking only to conservative members it was going up and down the high street with anybody coming up to me who wanted to talk to me and that probably gets you a wider feeling than exclusively talking to one's own membership what do you think of what we read by the way about conservative MPs such as Andrea Jenkins being threatened with having campaigning resources and money withheld from them well this is a confusion between where authority lies but in the Conservative Party that Dana's give money to central office and the whips run Parliament the whips do not run central office funding and these two it's very important that they're kept separate because I think Dana's would be pretty unhappy many of whom are quite Euroskeptic if they thought that there was an effort to penalize euro skeptic MPs the party chairman was reported in one instance to expect into a back bencher not the whips I'd seen it as coming from the whips I think the party chairman is ill-advised to do that because many of the donors are backers of leaving the European Union and I think any MP threatened with that would find that they would get more than enough from direct contributions I don't think it's a I think it's a proper threat to make and I don't think it's an effective threat to make I'm going to move to this question now it was among the ones I'd planned to us last but we seem to be here anyway could the Conservative Party split I think this is up to the Prime Minister you see I think the Prime Minister had a United Party on the mansion house speech and she then said on the mild program that whether you wouldn't accept it and if I couldn't do that whereas it actually then looks as if she's been planning this common for which read European rule above quite a long time and that is where the split chemistry had a United Party in March on the basis of the mansion house and then as then decided to give in to the EU and this is very unfortunate and it would be very very damaging for the Conservative Party if this unsatisfactory deal were pushed through against the wishes not just of leave supporting MPs but also leave sporting members and leave supporting voters or on the back of labour party votes what's your sage sauce is that she the Prime Minister could if she mishandles this split the Conservative Party yes I think that's right I've kept on saying this this is not a new thing for me to say the Prime Minister has a choice she can either do a u-turn and go back to the mansion house settlement or she can get it through potentially on Labour Party vaids which is very divisive split East in the event of this split she would be and the parallel is in some degrees misleadingly it may be useful she'd be in the position of the pea lights in the 1840s wouldn't she she'd own because if the leadership would own the party the resources the name the money the constitution you'd have to go off elsewhere would you know that's clearly not right and it's not what happened in the 1840s is it isn't it no the pea lights continued being pea lights the protectionists had to go off on no they remained today remain the Conservative Party and Peel remained within the Conservative Party he didn't leave the consumption ah but some of the others did so Gladstone did eventually go over to the launch of quite a time but the you have a period of confusion essentially and you have blocks in Parliament with no one overall party getting a clear majority and that getting governments that are supported by the Whigs and the pier lights and so on so it's it's not as simple as one side ends the party everybody to some extent remains within the party in that period if I'm embrace the one constant was the protectionist of the pea lights would not together after the split yes they wouldn't that's right they wouldn't work together though there are periodic efforts to try and bring them together and periodic discussions of collisions Derby at one point even offers parmistan a post so they try and create quite widespread collisions I don't think one can make precise parallels with the 1840s particularly since now this is the age of mass elections you didn't have mass elections in the 1840s so the inference is you'd have whoever the equivalent of the pea lights is you know let us call the further the may height conservatives standing in constituencies against the protectionists toward israelian conservatives in this case the resmoke conservative now I think this is going too far I don't think this is going to happen I actually don't think there will be this split because I think is more likely the policy change is when you've got a position where neither Peter Mandelson nor Ian Duncan Smith supports the policy it seems quite difficult to get it through now of course Mandelson is doing this for what we would call his own reasons is he not and the phrase he used I think yesterday I saw was the worst of all worlds coincidentally this phrase is also used by Justine greening this morning who's come out in favour for a second referendum seems to be the case doesn't it that what you might call the ultra Mainers believe not without reason that the Prime Minister is weak and whereas you see a way to a different form of leave a pure form of brexit you might call it they draw from the same facts another possibility namely stopping brexit altogether that's what's going on isn't it I think stopping democracy altogether would be a better way of putting it and that that will not work we are fundamentally democratic country and so many people who voted remain according to opinion polls and people at one meets even though they would have preferred us to stay in the European Union recognise and feel strongly that a democratic vote should be followed and so I think this idea that brexit can be stopped and reversed there is a mistake and is a risky mistake I think it would cause great discontent discontent in the electorate you would vote against the white paper proposals were they to represent a deal would you not yes and if that happened and were the deal to be voted down what do you think would happen in Parliament then it depends on the government the government controls the parliamentary timetable and the legislation is in place for us to leave without a deal there is no mechanism for Parliament to introduce legislation and have the time for it unless it is backed by the government it's possible for Parliament to change standing orders to do this but that's a very complex process and the government would have to provide time for that anyway and it would require a lot of contingent votes which then only happen with the program without a program motion which can only be provided by the government say the parliamentary formalities mean that a government that wanted having lost this deal to proceed with no deal would be able to do so you're convinced that's the most likely outcome I think from talking to you about the savory period of time was other people drawing it may not be an exact parallel but they would cite the Norway debate which was your debate on the German I would say well if the Commons decides it wants something badly enough that will happen so what could happen is not No Deal but the postponement or even the cancellation of brexit there's very little evidence that the commons wants that enough there are people who don't want to leave but how many of them really want to kick the electorate in the teeth I would suggest not enough to make that feasible and yes of course you're right that the government only exists with the confidence of the House of Commons but I don't think any Conservative MPs can't vote against the and innovative confidence I mean I suppose we could look ahead and speculate about what would happen if there is a deal if it's voted down whether you have no deal or the EEA or the postponement of brett's it but we've probably explored that enough to give listeners an idea of how complex this is so let's return to what we know and have in front of us namely the white paper is very interested in what you said about it a few moments ago that you thought it was bad but this wasn't your prime objection to it your prime objection to it was that the government had effectively conceded a whole was a massive ground without really saying so and without really making it clear why it's done that and without making it clear when it did it yes I agree with all those points I think it is peculiar that dexia was charged with drawing up a white paper at the same point without David Davis is not in Ch Downing Street was drawing up a completely separate paper 120 page paper for the cabinet now that doesn't happen in a couple of days there must have been some long-standing aim to get this common rule book idea and for common little book read European Union's rule book idea into play without telling the cabinet minister in charge of the negotiations this is a most unusual approach to cabinet government can I explain the sequence as I understand you sure we can try and work through it together and I say this in the light of conservative home last week having published the home of Dexys white paper in 23 installments so we've had a chance to have a look at it in the mansion-house speech back in March the Prime Minister clearly nailed her colours to the flag of mutual recognition so we wouldn't have ongoing harmonization we'd have mutual recognition and this was consistent with everything that had happened before there'd been a whole discussion at checkers in January or February I think about the form that mutual recognition might take so at some point between march and the emergence of this white paper something changed somewhere but we don't really know when all I know is that the DEXA ministers were aware near the end of the process that as it were they're in one room writing their own white paper all he rob ins his next-door writing his own but this happened very late in the day when do you think the Prime Minister changed her mind well you don't even know that the mansion-house speech was precisely the view of the prime minister at that time that is on mr. Mars show yesterday morning Monday of Sunday morning the Prime Minister when asked when this plan had first been thought about wouldn't give any indication of when it had been and it seemed to have been some time ago March is not that long ago it's very troubling and I think the Prime Minister ought to be clear about this and should tell the electorate what the process was what led to this and why was dexia not told when that was the department's job we're getting into very difficult territory here but in essence you're suggesting that the Prime Minister might not have been being straight when she delivered the mansion-house speech and she might already have had an alternative model now David Davis in his resignation letter and this has been rather missed by most of the media basically said in terms the Prime Minister had not been upfront with him in everything that she did so I'm coming back to where you began this section of the conversation we have a question of trust here and it doesn't seem to me that you now entirely trust the PM there is an issue of trust now there is of course a difference between saying something that is untrue directly and not saying something that if known would be useful for people to know that two are different categories in terms of trust but there's an old joke in the city that when somebody says to you his word is as good as his bond take his bond just in case and that seems to me to be a sensible way to behave which is why I put down amendments to the legislation just thinking about it isn't the Prime Minister entitled if she so wishes to have her ministers doing one thing and be drawing up another proposal in private with her advisers we have cabinet government in this country and what is done ought to be agreed by the cabinet or Tripura and the policy of the cabinet collective responsibility does not mean everybody gets their orders from the Prime Minister that the line about juvey Wellington's first cabinet and he comes out afterwards is a most difficult thing I give all this lot their orders and then they want to sit around discussing them that's not how cabinet government works it is a collegiate position which everybody then has to defend the Prime Minister appoints ministers to certain roles they have the seals of office from the Queen to carry out those roles the Prime Minister doesn't have the specific authority to carry out those roles the Prime Minister has a different role which is to chair the cabinet to set overall policy and to appoint the ministers in the first place if she doesn't think the minister is doing the right thing then the Prime Minister should appoint a new minister not do it behind the minister's back in Downing Street it's also questionable taxpayers money oh you know we're all taxpayers and our money was being spent doing two contradictory things half of that money was therefore being wasted you think it's not a good use of taxpayers money in effect to have what Steve Baker called a Potemkin department that is a very good way of putting it and it's not good constitutional practice for the prime minister not to have confidence in her own ministers to allow them to get on with the job they're appointed to do do you have confidence in the Prime Minister I have confidence in the Prime Minister and do not seek a vote of no-confidence in are not written one of the letters and I would always support the government in the terms of the fixed term Parliament act I would always support a conservative government let's just qualify just in case in ten years time we have some government digs oh yes yes can we just roll events forward a little again in this way that we have a sort of pattern of concession in these talks Downing Street would say and I think quite rightly there being concessions from the EU too but now we have a very major change of direction from mutual recognition to ongoing harmonization this isn't the government's final position is it this is merely an opening bid there were briefings to members of parliament on behalf of by the prime minister's advisers and this question was put very directly is this the final offer and the answer was no they don't like to portray it as an opening offer but it was cleared it was not a final offer and therefore you would expect that the EU would come back with some demands of its own well you would indeed because in some ways I think it's unfair to call this a soft brexit proposal it's some really a bit of this and a bit of that proposal in the sense of that the ease down to come back on free movement and say look you can't possibly try to have access to one part of the four freedoms without access to all of them they're bound to come back on services for exactly the same reason and they're bound to come back on the court therefore it's possible to imagine isn't it that the Prime Minister in a few months finds herself saying about the present position what she said on Sunday about mutual recognition she might find as I say it wasn't negotiable in which case further concessions would be proposed isn't that the power the regrettable problem became clear in the interview with Prime Minister with mr. Mara when she made that point about how people voted with their heart and basically her job was to get on deliver it with her head and this had come up similarly similar words in the briefing from her advisors and the problem with that is that it means that the government at its highest level does not believe in brexit see people like me who campaigned for brexit think it is this wonderful opportunity that its heart and head together it's constitutionally right it's economically advantageous it will create a real opportunity of this country to be a global nation rather than tied into the failing European economic model but Prime Minister thinks that leaving is costly and therefore of course she's not arguing for the best brexit because she wants to be protected in this failing fortress Europe and that is at the heart of the weakness of the negotiating position the primacy is scarcely surviving the publication of these proposals she wouldn't survive further concessions would you well I suppose the hope from unity of the conservative party point of view and the interest of the country point of view is that European Union turns around and says we are not accepting these we want more and the Prime Minister recognising the political reality says okay then it's got to be a completely different deal basically a free trade deal on a Canada basis and you put up a board in Ireland if you feel like it I just note in passing that Downing Street is no longer stressing no deal is better than a bad deal again look at the interview with mr. Mar and the Prime Minister seem to think that any deal was better than a bad deal but also there's a very interesting important song that said that Gavin bar wall had said Ireland isn't that important and the Prime Minister always wanted a soft brexit now that's fine that's not a dishonorable position but the Prime Minister should have said so from the outset and then we would have known where we stood she should have said so to the voters say to people who say to you you were being purest and doctrinaire about all this that you could bring down the Prime Minister in effect you might even bring down the government and we will have mr. Corbin I've said very clearly that I will not fight against a Conservative government under the fixed term Parliament's act facial confidence which is the only way of bringing government down and getting to mr. Corbin I would dispute that I've been doctrinaire I have been willing to accept any number of compromises that I'm not enthusiastic about so giving the EU 39 billion pounds which it's more than I think we need to pay them accepting a transition period which is not an implementation period the Prime Minister initially called for and the two are different accepting that we might belong to certain agencies accepting the very widespread compromises under the mansion-house speech which weren't her pure in every form brexit were compromised that brought everybody together the point at which people like me have dug our heels in is when we become simply a rule taker in perpetuity for our goods and Agri foods severely limiting our ability to do trade deals with the rest of the world and de facto subject to the European Court of Justice on that point Donald Trump was telling the full Candide unvarnished truth first time round that his interview with the son wasn't he under the terms of this proposal the government white paper any trade deal with America would be off whatever he said in a press conference at checkers afterwards what he said in the press conference at checkers if you look at it carefully confirmed what he said in the interview with Tom Newton down at the Sun he said you do whatever deal he want that's up to you I just want to deal that's good for trade there was a conditional so he showed his good manners at checkers by not being unhelpful directly in front of his hostess but he didn't actually change his position do you think we should sue the you know I think we should be much tougher in the negotiations and it's quite tempting isn't it to say look we've put in whatever it is half a trillion pounds since membership and we're not gonna give you any money we'd like some money back instead of course you Shapiro Busters always be with you in negotiations you should do two things one is you should be generous on issues that are going to be settled in one direction anyway where we should have been over people from EU Member States living in this country and the other is on the things that matter to you should be as hard as nails we've been hard on the issues a day matter at which we're going to give away anyway and soft on the ones that really do we've had the whole negotiation upside down not necessarily endorsement of the proposal that we should see the EU but leaving that aside for what's your view of Trump I'm fascinated by him as a political phenomenon I'm impressed by the things that he manages to get done in a way that most politicians wouldn't dare that they are much more cautious they're much more likely to follow the norms whereas he throws the norms up in the air and sees where they fall but he's done something remarkable in terms of his meeting with Kim jong-un and potentially begun to unlock a very long running problem that nobody else managed to do anything about his Iran policy may turn out to be rather more successful and people initially thought so I think he is an underrated politician because people don't realize about the way in which he needs to appeal to his electoral base and remarkably he delivers on his promises he's done things that previous Republican leaders had promised and didn't do and he's got in he's done them and I think either you shouldn't promise things to voters or you should do them and to that degree I think he is proving rather more successful than many people anticipated yes I met him six months ago or so very interesting man to speak to very well-informed obviously was very close to Donald Trump I've only met him once so I don't know him that well but he is very very well-informed and with very strong views some people would say call a spade a spade Valon flirts with and helps to drive the alt-right and trump's attitude to putin is a danger to the west I'm very suspicious of Putin I think we should treat Putin extraordinarily carefully and we should remember that he has invaded countries or participated invasions of independent sovereign nations and he's murdered people in the United Kingdom I mean this is really serious he is not a friend of ours and when you stop with the devil you should use a long spoon save Trump's attitude to Putin does he worry you at all I want to see what happens I I think it's interesting that people have assumed that because there are certain similarities between Trump and Putin in terms of their big personalities that they might get on it could be precisely the reverse they could find that they're actually quite competitive with each other and that the relationship isn't as smooth as people fear I am nonetheless concerned about what may happen between Don Trump and Vladimir Putin I think one should watch it with great caution and see what happens and what about famine the alt-right LBC producer I think quoted Bevin yesterday is saying that Tommy Robinson is a hero well I think that's simply wrong on Tommy Robinson that I think our contempt of court laws are very sensible protection of the right to a fair trial and that freedom of speech is crucial but say is the right to a fair trial and standing outside a courthouse shouting abuse at somebody whose trial is underway has been illegal in this country since time immemorial this is not a new piece of law it's not a restraint of free speech it is the ordinary desire to ensure that people have a fair trial in the United States of course it's different in the United States the First Amendment protects free speech even when people are being prosecuted but juries are sequestered in high-profile cases for much longer than they are in this country very different sort of person Boris Johnson what do you think the future holds for him oh I think Boris Johnson is a very important political figure very powerful charismatic figure popular appeals broadly across the country I'm a great admirer of Boris Johnson's what do you hope he does now I mean after all he is the the leaf politician with arguably you're somewhere in the queue yourself Jacob is arguably got the biggest projection he was the star force of the vote leave campaign what did he do now and we suggested on Khan home this morning he should go out and take the case for leave the case against a second referendum if you like take it out and go campaigning around the country well I was good out I certainly think those of us who want to leave the European Union needs to be more campaigning essentially we won the referendum and then stopped campaigning whereas the other side lost the referendum and started campaigning they didn't try very hard other than trying to scare us witless during the campaign itself so I read your piece this morning I liked the reference to Lord George Banting most interesting figure to two backed Israeli he sold all his horses one of which then went on to win the Derby which he was understandably miffed about because it was his great life's ambition anyway slightly beside the point he didn't die he died quite young he died died quite young yes and Disraeli didn't with a majority I think and no 1874 it's quids it's yeah it's 28 years out of office I don't see that happening to the Conservatives I think we're more likely as I said earlier to reverse the policy than to split the party and the great thing to remember is that pierre was right about the corn laws and the Prime Minister currently is wrong about not leaving the European Union de facto so yes I think some more campaigning its excellency lt's writing for The Telegraph again that's a wonderful platform for him and I think he with somebody who will help ensure breaks it is delivered well Jacob I think we have one more mod cast before the end of term goodness knows what condition will find everything even when we have it it's been a pleasure speaking to you as usual and well there is one important thing I hike a correction from my last podcast I said the last paper to be elected from outside the College of Cardinals was urban the fourth and I checked it afterwards I'm sorry to say it was an urban the sixth I got my eyes and the bees the wrong way around so can I apologize to listeners to the mall car no one's intervened on you in the Commons to make the point no but I holds a journalist chasing you to correct the record which is surprising of course we know how much attention journalist pay to detail on which point thank you very much for paying to do record and for speaking to us I've enjoyed this conversation very much and look forward to speaking with you again in a fortnight thank you very much the Hmong cast a fortnightly conversation with Jacob Riis MOG about the topics of the day

A day before Prime Minister Theresa May — who is trying to chart a course that satisfies pro-Brexit hardliners in her party — is due in Brussels for talks, Tusk slammed those who made campaign promises that made the divorce seem easy.

The Financial Secrecy Index ranks jurisdictions according to their secrecy and the scale of their offshore financial activities. A politically neutral ranking, it is a tool for understanding global financial secrecy, tax havens or secrecy jurisdictions, and illicit financial flows or capital flight.

why are some wealthy brexit ears so keen on a new deal breakfast I would they profit from an event that economists agree would make the country poorer the truth is obscured by a myth about the EU either you want to live in must your macarons Europe with a United States of Europe with a European army with all power vested in the center in Brussels or you believe in being an independent self-governing nation state that is the European debate in a sentence this is in fact the problem with the whole European debate Britain can't take back control from the EU because we never lost it 99% of UK public expenditure is determined by the UK government which shapes all major political policy from education to marriage divorce and the NHS the exception is immigration but the UK controls the vast majority of immigration which is from outside the EU immigrants from within the EU are the most valuable for the UK economy paying for more hospital and school places than they use so it's unlikely that the government will rush to reduce numbers Theresa May was Home Secretary for all those years why did she do nothing about it if this was the burning issue and the reason why I think she didn't do anything it's because our social services depend upon the skills of the doctors and the nurses in the health service and the government didn't want to be put in a position where is obviously controlling these numbers creating shortages here lengthening the queues EU countries don't give up their independence or sovereignty the Netherlands and Portugal legalized cannabis Germany's purity law means beer can only contain hops malt and water and mowing the lawn on a Sunday could land you a fine of 50,000 euros its ADIZ no less Italian France is known as French Britain is wonderfully endearingly britain at its best for me at least it means britain had the control over its laws that meant i was able to marry the man I loved and wanted to spend my life with four years again at its worst Britain alone in the EU also had enough control to decide to institute a preposterous and unworkable porn ban in which we're supposed to give out online our credit card and passport numbers to prove our age the small blobs is one of the worst ideas ever invented at the moment unless your Facebook or Google it's actually pretty hard to match up someone's real identity to their online behavior unless that is you make people log in to your site with their real name real email address and real credit card details which is exactly what this legislation will force people to do and this database it would be gigantic despite the absolute truth that anything anything online can be hacked but the illusion of britain losing control resonated with those feeling trapped at the wrong end of inequality and let's make sure that June the 24th Independence Day this obscured a true attempt to take control financial control for the wealthy far from interfering in national politics the EU works on projects that require cooperation like improving air quality cutting international core costs and reducing tax evasion new EU laws make it very difficult to dodge tax by moving profits to low tax countries and a new general anti-abuse rule covers national tax loopholes leading brexit ears have suggested that post brexit london could follow the example of singapore the financial secrecy index which tracks tax havens and capital flight ranks singapore fifth in the world with a secrecy score of 67 Nigel Farage may like the sound of this as it's more secretive than the Isle of Man a tax haven where he was found to have set up a trust fund Jacob Riis mogs investment company is managed via subsidiaries in the tax havens of the Cayman Islands and coincidentally Singapore this is all legal and an established part of Britain's tax network for the wealthy the financial secrecy index states that if Britain's Network were assessed together it would be the single most financially secretive place in the world suddenly BRICS it's a field for the wealthy makes more sense particularly an Odile brexit which would mean no requirement to abide by strict new financial regulations MP Owen Peterson said if we are to thrive our post brexit model should exactly be Singapore low tax low spend low regulation Trump's tax policy provides a glimpse of the potential impact a large corporation tax cut led to a steep drop in tax receipts and ballooning national debt and the impact of financial secrecy on schools and hospitals is felt all over the world African countries have lost over 1 trillion dollars in capital flight dwarfing their combined external debt so Africa is in fact a major net creditor to the world but its assets are in the hands of a wealthy elite protected by offshore secrecy while debts are shouldered by normal Africans brexit threatens to undo EU progress Sajid Javid a contender to replace teresa may who has worked as a banker in Singapore has spoken about using tax cuts and deregulation to transform the post brexit UK economy the NHS may also be trans in the true attempt to take control by corporations the initiative for free trade launched at the Foreign Office by Boris Johnson and Liam Fox thinks American healthcare companies should be allowed to run NHS hospitals after brexit the IFT aims to quotes we capture the moral case for open commerce in other words take back control for corporates environmentalists describe its plans as a low standards free-for-all as a doctor I do get worried about how polluted the air is around us especially for children stood in front of the the school we saw that the and the two levels we're measuring actually became higher and we don't have high pollution events certainly working in a knee we've definitely seen a rise of cases of children with wheezy problems so loads of things that the EU is banned because they could be harmful to are helpful to the environment a totally fair game in the u.s. from the chemicals in your cosmetics to the pesticides sprayed on the crops that you eat so as trade talks with the UK begin the u.s. is going to want to wrangle it so that we have a system that's welcoming to us exports from fluorinated chicken to veggies sprayed with v harming pesticides there are also of course simpler political motivations Nigel Farage has run for MP seven times as the leader of you Kip he found a following and has focused on brexit ever since the illusion of losing control is very effective but it's not Britain that needs to take back control it the British company I suppose it's a paradox really many people saw it as if you like something of a rejection of a way things have been done yes big business your campaign actually did come personally against big business and perhaps our feeling by the public these people have been getting away with murder I mean basically they don't seem to pay any tax they sort of run around the world doing doing what they want there's some the irony that post brexit we would become a tax haven for big companies is that is that what the public had intended when they made that vote it's a very good point but I think there's a distinction to be made um the there's a there's a sort of corporatist Davos man approach rigging the rules of the market in favor of incumbents and the already wealthy and there's a slightly different approach in fact I would argue a radically different approach which is we're in favor of free markets not big business we're in favor of competition with insurgents the big guy seeing the taxes of internationally mobile come they're gonna be internationally mobile in order to induce them to come here to pay the reduce tax rates that's is that what people who thought they were getting with a vote on the deal there would be a genuine opportunity to boost NHS funding and hit certain wealthy elites where it hurts now what would you call a new myth-busting campaign to take back control from tax dodging corporations and lying politicians how about take back control around the world manipulative misinformation threatens our health our schools and hospitals and the environment join us to truly take back control our first brexit award goes to the party that grew from a mountain of brexit which we have debunked in detail nigel farage says he will announce his policies after the election but there's plenty to go on we may have made one of the biggest stupidest collective mistakes in history by getting so worried about global warming I think we're gonna have to move to an insurance-based system for health care Faraj campaigned for a deal with the EU actually know what Norway Norway Norway can afford to give people money it's rich it's successful Norway Norway Norway Norway they're rich they top the world's happen its index they're allowed to catch their own fish but now he wants a very different no deal brexit he's treating the EU elections like a referendum on Europe so let's have a proper one an informed vote asking who's ready taking control

According to the Sun, the President of the National Farmers Union (NFU), Minette Batters, has said that:
“We have 15 million breeding ewes in the UK.
“For many years now, we’ve been exporting 40% of that to France.
“In a no deal situation, you cannot get over that tariff wall. You will have to look at slaughtering quite a large percentage of the national sheep stock.”
Being me I went and checked out the UK sheep and lamb import and export figures from AHDB Beef & Lamb. And, as ever, there’s a link to the report in the descriptions box below.
The latest figures I found were for 2018 and published on March the 7th 2019.
The figures were broken down for the different cuts in fresh, chilled and frozen meats from sheep and lambs and when you tot them all up you get that in 2018 the UK imported 90,320 tonnes carcass weight equivalent and exported 86,207 tonnes CWE.
That’s a slight deficit where we import 4,113 tonnes CWE more than we export, which is just under 5% more that we export.
So pretty much balanced one would think. So why not eat our own meat and export/import less?
But the differences start when looking at whether the meat is fresh or frozen and the different types of cuts.
The data shows that we are a net importer of all frozen cuts of sheep and lamb as well as fresh sheep legs and boneless cuts of sheep.
And we are a net exporter of all the other fresh cuts.
So, with all the sheep wandering around the hills and dales of the UK, we import the frozen stuff and export the fresh.
Well, the truth is that it’s a bit seasonal and the report says that most of the imports come from New Zealand and most of our exports go to the EU.
But one of the big drivers is the way that New Zealand exporters cut the meat and exports each to where it will get the most profit.
And the report itself does ask the question:
“So, why doesn’t the UK cut carcasses here and keep the cuts which are in demand, for example the legs, and export the rest?”
With the answer being it seems that it’s easier just to put the whole thing in a lorry and transport it away to the EU to be cut up.
Now, I’m not a farmer as the nearest I get to meat production is handling the plastic covered produce in the supermarket.
So this is a layman’s question – looking at the basic import and export totals, surely there’s scope in the long run to up production slightly then increase the consumption and freezing of UK lamb and sheep meat in the UK and therefore no need for the wholesale wasteful slaughter of perfectly good animals?
hello there according to a report in the Sun millions of UK sheep will have to be slaughtered if the UK leaves the EU without a deal according to the son the president of the National Farmers Union Manette batters has said that we have 15 million breeding news in the UK for many years now we've been exporting 40% of that to France in a no deal situation you cannot get over that tariff wall you will have to look at slaughtering quite a large percentage of the National Sheep stock being me I went and checked out the UK sheep and lamb import and export figures from a HDB beef and lamb and as ever there's a link to the report in the descriptions box below the latest figures I found were for 2018 and published on March the 7th 2019 the figures were broken down for the different cuts in fresh and chilled and frozen meats from sheep and lambs and when you topped them all up you get that in 2018 the UK imported ninety thousand three hundred and twenty tons carcass weight equivalent and exported 86 thousand two hundred and seven tonnes cwe that's a slight deficit where we import 4113 tonnes cwe more than we export which is just under 5% more than we export so pretty much balanced one would think so why not eat our own meat and export and import less but the differences start when looking at whether the meat is fresh or frozen and the different types of cuts the data shows that we are a net importer of all frozen cuts of sheep and lamb as well as for sheep legs and boneless cuts of sheep and we are a net exporter of all the other fresh cuts so with all the sheep wandering around the hills and dales of the UK we import the frozen stuff and export the fresh well the truth is that it's a bit seasonal and a bit more complicated than that and the report says that most of the imports come from New Zealand and most of our exports go to the EU but one of the big drivers is the way that New Zealand exporters cut the meat and exports each to where it will get the most profit and the report itself does ask the question so why doesn't the UK cut carcasses here and keep the cuts which are in demand for example the legs and export the rest with the answer being it seems that it's just easier to put the whole thing in a lorry and transport it away to the EU to be cut up now I'm not a farmer as the nearest I get to meet production is handling the plastic covered produce in the supermarket so this is a layman's question and honest question looking at the basic import and export totals surely there's scope in the long run to up production production slightly then increase the consumption and freezing of UK lamb and sheep meat in the UK and therefore no need for the wholesale wasteful slaughter of perfectly good animals anyway what do you think please share and comment on thank you for watching please do like and share this video and also subscribe to my channel and when subscribing please do remember to press on the little bell next to the subscribe button that way you're getting alert every single time I put up a new video thank you very much for watching

he's under huge pressure on a whole number of fronts one a which of course is what is the Labour Party policy on brexit now today he's been in Dublin he's been with the Irish Prime Minister Bertie shock and of course he's been asked once again by the press what does he want to see how is the brexit deadlock going to be broken and this was what Jeremy Corbyn had to say about a general election our first priority would be actually a general election look it's two years since the last general election this government has no ledge to programme worthy of the name it has been incompetent to say negligence in its negotiations with the EU changing it starts many times as almost as often as it's changes for exit secretaries and now we have a Tory Kai leadership contest which appears to be between no deal no deal and no deal well this is not what this is not acceptable I think the public deserves the right to elect a new parliament and elect a new government that can go on from there so of course that's the line you've been trotting out all the way through this not really saying quite where labour stands or brexit but consistently saying there should be a general election but setting himself very clearly against what he calls the No Deal what I'd call a WT o brexit or a clean break brexit but then he was asked again specifically about his views on a second referendum we don't back rerun of 2016 that happened that's gone what I do say is that if Parliament comes to an agreement then it's reasonable and if Parliament wishes it there should be a public vote on it well I don't know with you any of the wiser I'm not I mean it's just it's couched in language that really is very difficult to understand you know he's got his deputy Tom Watson screaming at him much of his parliamentary parties screaming at him say you know they want him to come out fully in favour of a second referendum and because he won't they did lose votes last Thursday to the Liberal Democrats but because he won't actually say that he really wants breaks it to happen they're also losing votes of course to the brexit party and others so they're in a hell of a mess but but what he is saying I don't think is relevant he's saying either there's gonna be a general election or a second referendum and I I have to say I think that generally is the conversation it's difficult to see how our parliament can go on in crisis as it is so I'm going to ask you today which would you prefer would you prefer sometime this year a general election or a second referendum and if you think a general election is the way to sort this out call Oh three four five six oh six oh nine seven three maybe you think a second referendum is fair and justified because we didn't really know what we were voting on last time mmm text two eight four eight five Oh or are you completely and utterly fed up we've been asked to vote again and again and again and would rather neither happened in which case tweet using the hashtag farad and LBC at LBC and of course the growing number of you watching us live on Facebook will no doubt have your to penneth as well I have to say I am opposed to a second referendum being fought it seems to me that you can't hold a second referendum until you first implemented the original one it's very anti-democratic and wrong I think to force it again but I'm gonna say this I haven't said it before if we have not left on the 31st of October which is the new date that we're supposed to leave the European Union if we are failed once again by government and Parliament then I think there should be a general election later on this year I just think we've had enough of repeatedly being made promises that get broken so that is very much my view let's go to Steve here's a new caller in Beckenham good evening Steve and welcome hi hey I'm doing all right so which would you prefer Steve well I don't think a general election can really solve anything alone because I don't really think that we have a really good sense of the will of the people I heard and plenty of other people say 17 odd million people voted voted to leave I mean almost as many people voted to stay and just as many people didn't vote at all the figures that you're throwing out there really are only a third of the population really a vote they decide they want to leave and that's not really enough I think if you focus on anything at all which should be on trying to conveniently to stay or stay as to lead but to find out what the rest of the people didn't vote at all one well how how on earth Steve can you do that and by the way bear in mind what once I could bear in mind the when Tony Blair won the general election in 2005 he only got 35 percent of the vote I know the population and off the population between 20 and 25 percent say election the state my point is this elections are decided surely by those that choose to vote doesn't have to be that way does it because you're not sure that you can please if you feel that change is something that you want but get often thought about it what you have is people that bothered enough to get off their backsides and say yes I'd like things exactly the way they are but I would say that every one of those people that didn't vote also feel that way getting up and voting for to remain the same I think you can count all of those people as they voted no because even in the heyday Steve even in the heyday when when turnouts were high in this country general election turnout I think the all-time record since the war was 82% general legend this is a different thing three parties you can't make those kind of assumptions but the binary choice yes in or out what you can be quite safe to say we can shoot everybody is in and let you tell if you want to be out it's just like saying about being an organ donor or something like that we make a basic assumption about your standpoint if you don't like that basic assumption please feel free to come and tell us what you would prefer Steve Steve if you assume he was seemed that the non voting majority supported the status quo they'll be almost no point ever holding any referendum would there's nothing like it to tell people to tell people that you want to change it would say something about it like you're saying that wants us to leave Steve I'd say I've seen elections I'm saying that elections are decided by those who choose to go and vote we could of course moved system of compulsory voting would you prefer to see that well I don't think we need to find people but I think if I write assumption about how they feel you don't have to find people that don't follow what you can say you're staying unless you tell us you want elite I think I can tell us so would you choose a general agent or a revelation make any different I don't leave policy unless I knew that a clear majority in the country not just the people that bother to vote but all of the world and you know vote for that how can you do anything other than support brexit party but at the moment at all hopefully you wouldn't change the fortunes of any organization with that little support you have a third of the support of the country well Steve I have to say I've had a lot of political arguments over the years that one's very near me and I thank you for it okay Nigel bring on an election says Patricia in Whitstable she's up for a general election Corbin strategy has backfired on him his mission is for an election and for the Labour Party to be put into power his own party is scouring his maneuvering and manipulations Caroline he is looking a very long way away from much of his own party Scott reckons we were miss sold and lied to during the first campaign for brexit Scott I agree with you in 1975 the lies that were told to the British people to my parents generation were completely outrageous we deserve a second vote we did we have won in 2016 and I'm bored with this we should well I tell you what Scott you know the idea that it was a unique thing that somehow someone told lies in an election you could say that of every single election campaigns ever been fought since the dawn of time but I do repeat the point the willful lies that were told by Heath and others in the seventies my goodness me Graham is a new caller from Newcastle hi Graham Graham hello nope I haven't got I'm gonna go to Kevin who is calling from Pontypool hello Kevin so Corbin appears to be all over the show but increasingly there is a feeling Kevin that something's going to break here which would you prefer to see rice I don't know about that but who's to say do you think do you think Kevin if there was a general election that we could see some big shifts in in voting patterns across the parties all over the place well some people still work I mean it's a you really believe that we're on the point of something as a massive shift occurring yes interesting interesting I mean you're calling from a part of the world where you know the Labour Party's is nice in 18 have dominated politics I'm right and as your and your senses they wouldn't if there was a general election this way the Labour Party is at level with Corbin I don't think he'd be there so long to be honest what given and the current rouse he's having with his own deputy leader and and much of his own parliamentary party he might be in trouble although Kevin there are hundreds of thousands of three power members in the Labour Party who do support him but I don't know Kevin thank you for your call and Kevin you know taking the point and it is a debate that a shift has occurred in British politics that the European elections last week showed that all of that's valid although of course we do have a first past the post electoral system if we had a system with proportionality then I think a general election could give us a radically different results it's not so certain with the system that we've got you

five Oh tweet at LBC using a hashtag Faraj on LBC so after Corbin today says there should be a general election or perhaps even possibly maybe depending on the circumstances a second referendum which of those two would you prefer or would you prefer neither do you think neither would actually at this stage sort anything out Pat on Facebook says we voted leave what about the referendum on honouring the Reverend result yeah well I know Pat and this is my feeling that you know the first the vote of 2016 needs to be put in place and if people would have a second referendum down the track they can do it but to do it now I think would be simply wrong Nigel says what are your thoughts on a qualified majority for a possible referendum I think what I do think about any referendum is there has to be a minimum turnout for it to and I you know we're the caller on earlier saying that everyone doesn't vote should be counted in with a status quo that doesn't work for me but I do think if you can make a big change like for example if Scotland was to separate from the United Kingdom I think there has to be a minimum threshold of those that turn out to vote a forty or fifty percent minimum threshold that's my feeling give me your thoughts and feelings on this oh three four five six oh six oh nine seven three I'm going to Teignmouth in Devon to speak to Jordan who's a new caller good evening hiya Nigel Haydon I'm doing well so how do we solve it all so how I saw this there's only one solution right there's a general election the reason for that is that we are a decided country as you probably well know and we split all the way through the parties through the through the people everywhere so a referendum is just going to be another 52:48 scenario whichever way it goes it's not going to be a huge margin so what we need is a general election and the result of that election when nobody wins outright conservatives aren't going to win labour aren't going to win and no one else will so I mean I'd like to say we're heading into coalition politics but let's face facts we're already there aren't we yes it's what it said effectively Emily yeah exactly so what happens at that point is then over you and the Conservatives team up and get a majority or Labour SNP liberals and Claire's greens whoever they want to I mean all of them together probably would be a better idea and and the actual result of that as far as I'm concerned is not not how we leave we're up we overstay all the leave the other you guys sort out and relief all those guys get in and don't you know mess about claiming that you know we're going to leave in this way or that way none of the options are gonna work I'm gonna get beep on because none of them are very good you know basically what you're saying is this is the fault line in British politics you either want to stay or leave and I agree with that and people increasingly people increasingly now identify not as Labour or conservative but as leavers or remain as entirely yeah and you're absolutely right with that do you think we've reached the point where basically both the labor and conservative parties to must decide what they really really are I don't I don't I don't think that they need to I think what they need to do is remove this false ego that they've got about themselves are the only two pies exist because they don't anymore and what we need is proportional representation and we will get that eventually maybe not you know I'd love it to be in an X or a few years but maybe not in my lifetime but this issue will resonate for the next 10 20 30 40 50 hundred genes who knows but the reality is that things change now the seed has been sown and we need a proportional representation system I've had that proportional representation we wouldn't have this problem because you're formally invoke 2000 2010 was counted yeah I'm not before you careful or anything I'm a very Pro remain but you deserved it was a it was a it was a tough day it was a tough day Jordan I get your point and I do understand that with reform and with coalition's forming on either side of the argument we might actually get a parliament that made a bit of sense David says America wants to trade with us so why don't politicians make brexit happen so we can have this huge deal well interestingly US National Security Advisor John Bolton is in London today and he made a comment on this to Sky News earlier well the president will do what the president wants I think it's it's safe to say that he continues to look forward to an opportunity to have a bilateral trade deal with the United Kingdom I think that's very important for both countries and as soon as that's the United Kingdom is in a position to engage in those negotiations seriously we're prepared to do so as well John Bolton talking very positively about brexit linking in with David's message now John it Lester says change the first-past-the-post system to the USA Stan electoral college John the American system is desperately complicated and it works in a presidential system but we don't have a presidential system we elect MPs and from those MPs comes a prime minister I think what John's saying is we should move to a presidential type of sister I wonder how many people would support that let's try rod is a new caller from stem areas in Essex good evening rod so general election or second referendum rod for main diva right okay why not what a set of referendums a joke really I mean without a referendum the leave is one so we leave I mean now I'm a reminder that I respect the result so that's that one as for us an election of no idea what that's going to do the fact that come by call be marking the power god help us I don't know what I post a fault with that so it has always been interested in since the beginning I think that's all I've ever heard e-mini screw talked about since 2000 well I think I think all leaders of opposition's in the House of Commons want general elections I want to be Prime Minister don't they oh yeah I mean to me that would be the worse what if the country wanted him in the country will get Monday yes there's nothing I could do about I mean obviously I will make your eyes out to stop it yeah I mean you know that's the agree though there at the end of the day year the results the results as a referendum so rod if we do know that and I do understand you know I do understand people's frustration I mean in many parts of England people voted on the second of May they were asked to vote again on the 23rd of May and I do understand people saying hey you know enough is enough but yeah but somehow at some point this deadlock does have to get broken doesn't it definitely yes yeah I think I mean John you I don't know the way forward I think there is a simple way forward it seems whoever's going to be you know in Brussels trying to do this UK part of and they're going to trash everything they try and do anyway that's the way I look at it so I can't see any day I mean somebody just hit someone in like to do leader which is probably going to be Boris and he's probably by the wild looking funny just gonna crush out with a no deal anyway well maybe we will but my argument I rod my argument rod is we were supposed to leave on the 29th of March we did we didn't despite all the promises and that's why we fought to European and action my argument is the next dates the 31st of October if we don't leave on that we don't leave on that date then Parliament has failed us again surely then it is reasonable to say let's have a general election I don't think I mean our field is a trivial election labour will gain in my opinion our field I will get in and I can see Gary Micco Queen I don't know I mean it'd be worse than that would take some doing wouldn't it but all right I get it thank you thank you thank you Pauling Cruden says the only democratic way to solve the brexit situation is a second referendum with either Mays deal or WTO the first referendum result must be honored or Paul the point you're making is we've only wants to leave we we then in a referendum could choose how we leave and I understand that but I struggled to see Parliament putting that choice to us given its current makeup but one of the reasons folks I'm again really opposed to a second referendum is this so we have a second referendum this autumn and the leave vote I'm pretty confident the leave vote would be a fair bit higher than 52% but let's just say 58% next time vote leave would this Parliament with the color people in it even honor that result I don't think so I really don't think so Adam is a new quarter of a new port good evening Adam we're doing okay ish but I certainly go with ish I mean so in the seventies lies and betrayal which meant we joined the European Union and end in 2016 absolute truth all round and swing voters like myself quite happily thought yeah I can see 350 million being better for the NHS yeah I pretty much think you know turkey joining me you might not be a good idea yeah this is going to be this is gonna be better for my children so yeah I'm out and yeah that was all true wasn't it no job well turkey joining the European Union has been on the agenda since 1961 and it's already much it's all any part of the customs union but I think but I think the I think well I think you can listen if you want to I think the pretty extremists root the agonist has taken turkey down means that it is not gonna be joining anytime soon but yeah I mean it was one of David Cameron's biggest ambitions as Prime Minister was for turkey to be a member of the European Union so yeah that was absolutely true at the time and circumstances change the 350 consensus change Nigel circumstances change more evidence comes to light more evidence comes that would oppose then of course it does Adam I mean I don't have a swing as a swing vote Nigel am I not like my democratic right to review all of the evidence in front of us now look at all of the options on the table and actually see with all of the truth with all the deceit that has come out of the leave campaign not necessarily from yours but from others that actually the best thing we can do is stay in the European Union well out of actually and actually we equation and we had a vote on this last week didn't we we had a vote on this last week no we did last week we had a we had a vote on the the guys who were adamant leavers will still adamantly vote leave irani vote remains yeah people like me that sit in the middle that want to make an informed decision no I believe I did last time and I was lied to now I am old my democratic right to change my mind well Adam how an atom you know my parents were lied to they were told it was a common market wouldn't affect our sovereignty and it took 45 years to the 45 years to have a second go Adam you can have a self Adam I'll give you a second referendum after this one has been implemented and that I think is really the point implement something which is fragmented the country to such a degree that nobody knows what must be implemented once we implemented we are currently talking about the possible leader of this country being up on criminal charges evidence that he produced to help me make my decision well Adam I'm not gonna discuss the details of that case although if people were held to account for promises they'd made in manifestos virtually everybody in Parliament would be in court tomorrow you honest think to the night if our show here on OBC at 6:30 and

today saying there must be a general election and perhaps if a deal is agreed by Parliament then maybe possibly perhaps a second referendum not being very clear all of which proms kneel in Swansea to say I have no idea what Corbin stands for or once anymore but there is a debate in the country what are we going to do to sort this out do we need a second referendum or would a general election sorted and I've now moved to the position that says if we don't leave on the 31st of October our Parliament has failed not once but twice and it should at least be a chance to get rid of these people who failed so badly before we get back to that firstly a bit of good news the World Cup cricket has started today an England of beaten South Africa by a hundred and four runs I'm pleased about that I was invited to the Oval and I was too busy to go says he through gritted teeth and sticking with politics Philip Hammond he the Chancellor eeeh and and the sort of staunch remainder in the cabinet but what he said this morning I thought was very very interesting he was asked if there was a vote of no-confidence in his own government because the government had gone for a WTO brexit on the 31st of October would he vote with his own here was his answer I've been in Parliament for 22 years and I have never once voted against the conservative whip so it's not something that I would do lightly or enthusiastically but I am very clear that the national interest trumps the party interest and if I am presented with a difficult choice I will act in what I believe is the best interest of this country I don't agree with him but it's very interesting what he's saying you know we are reaching we're getting very close to a point where the two-party system could just destroy itself could just blow apart in many ways I'm beginning to feel the sooner that happens the better it will be so second referendum or general election Paul on facebook says I voted for leave twice and would keep doing it in as many elections as possible some would argue Paul they'd voted leave in 2016 in the referendum they devoted four leave parties in the 2017 general election and they ready for leave parties last Thursday and they keep voting leave and three years old we haven't left Glynn says neither a second referendum nor a general election deliver what you were asked to do Glynn that's been my position but as I say if we go past the 31st of October I think something has got to give April says no second referendum but yes some a general election let's get rid of the dead wood let's go to Robert in Rochester good evening Robert good evening Nigel so the question is which would I say is yeah it would be a general election and I believe this is what they're playing towards a Christmas general election to make sure turnout is at an all-time low and therefore guarantee their re-election and that's the sad day that I say obviously my opinion is that I think a general election is needed but something that where we've got a long period of time to campaign to get people interested in voting Robert why would if we had a mid-december general election why would that mean turnout will be low because obviously people are busy over Christmas the weather generally gets bad and it generally changes the way that people are actually thinking they're more insular about right I get it I get it again it you're right no you are right you are right and similarly if it was a February election we would expect a lower turnout you are right about that but but but Robert if enough people wanted change they could still be a low turnout and still vote for different parties I mean you could argue Robert there was a quite a low turnout in the European elections last week and yet quite a dramatic result yes it was a fantastic result for your party however it was still a low turnout it was double the figures it has normally been so well done for that because I think it's your influence that caused the increase in voting for the European elections but when it comes to the let the election that was a couple of weeks before of XI I lived in the South faced yes there was an all-time low turnout for local elections and we saw pacifically where a live in Medway the low turnout caused the normal parties to continue to win because the those who voted for other parties which was extraordinary the postal vote system they the normal parties guaranteed their own victory you know what now I do I do and I have to say Robert one of the reforms I want in this country is reform of the postal voting system you know postal votes used to be allowed for people who were 94 and infirm soldiers serving overseas people you know who had reasons not to be in the country and they would apply for a postal vote for that election blair started giving postal votes on demand and it was what the parties did is they got as many of their known supporters on postal votes and what happens robert is the postman delivers the postal vote through the door and 20 minutes later someone knocks on the door from the party and says can I collect your postal vote please it's open to abuse isn't it yes and although there's strict penalties I've never actually seen it actually implemented a five-year ban I've never seen it implemented and I do question in various areas whether that is actually pressure on the constituents because as far as I've been amazed aware is after they've received their postal vote they're not allowed to be campaigned questionably Wow I know that's not but it's it's it's unenforceable and the other point Robert is they get their postal votes two and a half three weeks before the election date when the whole debate in the cycles at a different stage is very odd Robert thank you messages galore coming in the question is not if but we have a second referendum but what the question should be says Nick from Barry hi Nigel I would just like to say until Berko goes it's just a waste of time discussing it as he has such a rotten hold on the whole scenario he has to go ASAP says Pauline certainly berkos comments in America yesterday have excited many of you there's no left or right on brexit there's only leave or remain the posh boy in Hazel Muir and the bricklayer in Rotherham now share the same view which means that the old party loyalties are gone I want a general election thanks Roland Roland to a very large degree absolutely with you on that I do think that people are wearing on their sleeves the badge lever remainer more than we've been conservative for the last four generations or labour let's go to Dudley in the West Midlands and speak to Yvonne and you call a hi Yvonne hi Nigel so what's going to solve it if I'm well in general election we've got to have a general election because they'll word that referendum so that we don't get what we voted for I voted no back in 1975 I also worked on behalf of the referendum party Young's ago because increasingly I've seen the power from this country disappear into Europe it will be we will be totally controlled by Europe if we don't get out and the thought of that just write-ins make them like children or grandchildren all of you know to matter tonight but to see these country swallowed up well that's a that's that's obviously with you a very strongly held political opinion and son take a different view and they think that a big strong united Europe you know with its own flags and anthems and armies is the future but look you know we didn't vote for mister Yunker and we can't get rid of it I I'm on your side of the argument of course wholly on this but in terms of the mess that British politics finds itself in now would in your view a general election or a second referendum sorted out only if you have a candidate in every borough in every place will it be sorted and then we'll have a true representation we will have an opposition that will fight against whatever is left of this mess we can they are what you say they are career politicians my husband uses live in London and we've been married fiction II came up instead what I live London he said I always thought that everybody up north would you know that London would be decide you know it's really funny having you here and saying exactly the same thing people in London don't think about the rest of the country they're not even interested in the rest well that is that is another one of the great divides that exists in this country today and you're right to say that actually I think increasingly people beyond the confines of the m25 feel that London is it London is a different place Yvonne I thank you for your call you're listening to the Nigel Farage show exclusively on RBC it's

in general the calls texts tweets Facebook measures I'm getting I think Chris from fraud sham sums it up he says it's a general election for me Nigel to give the people a chance to ditch their MP if they did not support the wishes of their constituents the MPs would prefer a second referendum because they don't fancy getting their p 45s and that's been quite consistent tonight many many more of you thinking a general election is the right way out over a second referendum some of you wanting understandably I think once him neither Ryan is a new caller from Bolton good evening Ryan good evening so which is it to be run over – I'd have to say general election in five years we've had five referendum we had a conservative saying what Rosen will give you a referendum we did that then we had the referendum then we had a no general election we've said yes we also good for parties well not all but most of us voted partly saying yes we will you know we'll follow through with the referendum and then we've just done to European election theory you can argue we've had all referendums already within the not quite sure I buy that rhyme but but but no I I don't buy that although we've had the chance to express an opinion that's certainly true yes but we all voted for them and if we're going to have a general election then we need two general elections to get rid of the individuals that are in Parliament at the moment just so we can get rid of this deadlock I am a remainder sorry I'm a leader I massively support the fact that we should leave the EU and we should become independent and unfortunately as we are at the moment we're not leaving and God knows how many promises we've been giving you will leave I know I know mrs. may 108 times you'll leave a mark I mean there isn't run there was no there is a risk that you have a general election and he finish up with the DUP holding the balance of power again I mean there is a risk of that there is but what do we do it I rather just leave I would rather just leave without a referendum or a general election on board where we stand at the moment and we've got politicians being have legal action taken against or just because of what they said does this mean to reason may now it's going to get taken to court I honestly I'm I'm concerned about this because otherwise everybody would be I mean to be no one left with that Ryan I thank you for your call just to really help me here I've got a comment here saying personally I would prefer a Scottish independence referendum yeah thanks for that and of course Nicola Sturgeon very much once another Scottish referendum and she once gotten the remain within the European Union let's go to a new quarter of a Manchester called George George which is it to be I know you're I'm 21 and I voted to remain however I do actually support as leaving because I think you know the country voted for it people need to get on the voted for my trouble with the general election is the way that the parties are voted in at the moment I can't see any new parties getting voted in so I think what you don't was just a coalition probably run by Labour which end of the day I don't think it's a great idea because they want to keep it in the Union at the end of the day it's a george i am i hearing a plea for a different type of voting system indeed yeah yeah what I have to say and I say you know having having led a party to four million votes of one seat very difficult difficult for me not to agree with you indeed and also you know a lot of people my age want to remain because quite frankly they can't accept the result of the referendum which I you know I do hope to remain and I think that we need to leave I think the perception it's a second referendum because I think if there is another second restaurant and leaves will run again Oh George I think leave would win with a bigger majority but I also think this Parliament would still do their absolute best to dishonor it yeah George I'm losing you I'm losing your lines cracking up but George they're a remainer who thinks we have to leave George has anyone whether people like George he's a Democrat Paul Broman Chester says Faraj get real when Mae lost her majority for her and her government that was the end of your brexit and us leaving the EU Paul you may think that actually what it meant was it's gonna take longer and there are more battles to fight I still absolutely believe that brexit will happen because I think the genie is out of the bottle we're going to Barnsley to speak to Jordan good evening hi Nigel you all right I'm all right so what's it to be a general election or a rental Reverend yes I actually think they could pull off those both oh wow okay talk me through it please yep so I think if they called it an election sooner rather than later they have a chance for both major parties the Conservatives and labor to fully rebuild their manifest those wonderful probe wrecks it one for pro remain and then the two parties can have at it and we can finally get this over and done with one way or another that's assuming Jordan that labor becomes a totally romaine party and obviously at the moment it's very unlikely because the wall swap really happens and it's very annoying it's also assuming that the Conservative Party genuinely wants to leave as well I think yeah I don't do something like that it's it's going to go the way whether to fight system breaks which I'm sure it's not what they personally want so I think if they don't do that then they're headed for disaster do you think the two-party system breaking would be a bad thing not necessarily it's nice to see other parties getting a chance you know we're becoming more of a democratic country where we don't destroy it one way or the other we're getting more chances to vote for different kind of important issues like the Green Party with the environment but I think from the conservatives and labour point of view they don't want to ruin what they've got going and that's the only way I think he's going you may be right at the moment they're trying to keep you know wings of their parties together and it's not really working Jordan I thank you Craig in Gateshead raising a point that we've heard already tonight but it's becoming stronger I sense he says Nigel we keep on hearing the country is divided the country is not divided the problem is the London area and Parliament the rest of the country spoke once again with a strong voice last Thursday and Craig have to say there is a strong feeling that London versus the rest it is one of the big divisions that exists today my last caller tonight is David a new caller from Manchester good evening David I am okay ish come on give me a salacious get your the last leg you've got a minute to tell us all right you're the mantel implemented right for democracy itself to survive in this nation the vote from 2016 has to be respected that eon question that has to happen so my proposal is we leave on the 31st of october Deal or No Deal we're out that's it however I am being aware the country is on this issue I'm a firm believer I'm fully committed to leave in the European Union I would vote leave time and time again however I know my neighbor next door he didn't remain err and no matter what we decide between discuss between ourselves I can never convince him he can't convince me the problem is not the people of this country it's not the fault to leave us in the issue the problem has been Westminster it's been our parliamentarians in our MPs from Heath to major Brown so how do we solve a David how do I solve it we leave on the 31st of October Deal or No Deal we respect democracy David I don't disagree but it's time to put our cards on the table the EU has always wanted to go to this federal space of Europe and they've tried to do is slow creep and assault oh sure was into it without I was realizing let's put the cards on the table I want to see MPs in London campaigning to make themselves unemployed like you've been doing for the last well well let's have it but the current Parliament wouldn't respect it and I hope you and your neighbor can make up at some point you've been listening to the Nigel Farage show here on LBC I'll be back on Sunday morning at 10 o'clock at 10:00 tonight is Thom Swarbrick

it's Thursday is 12:15 we're live in Westminster with me today on politics live the form of BBC presenter Gavin as though he's standing for change UK in the European elections brexit party candidate Martin Dabney who used to be the editor of loaded magazine the political editor of the mirror paper paper career and Conservative MP Julian Keegan it's Europe day-to-day not a lot of people knew that but now you do and it's just two weeks to go to those elections foreign matter fight the European elections only labour can see off the Faraj snake-oil in this election liver of the first of three parties launching their European campaigns today that's for the Conservatives you may not even have a campaign I believe in a modern Conservative Party and a modern conservative party I'll tell you now we get things like this right so why is the Conservative MP Johnny Mercer on strike and will anybody notice meanwhile another Tory declares their interest in the top job now people have come forward and I have got that support so I will be going forward so Julian Keegan Johnny Mercer says he is going on strike except on exit issues that's just a futile gesture isn't it because your government government do anything but they're not as controversial perhaps as brexit so you've got no legislation worth talking about you're not putting a through Parliament on the domestic abuse bill committee as we speak Tuesday but there is legislation and of course we've got the cladding announcement today but there is legislation coming to but very slowly and obviously it's not big controversial stuff because bricks it is big enough and controversial enough for all of us he's going on strike as he puts it I'm not sure we'll be taking a pickup but he's going on strike governor's there to complain about the government is still it is still possible that veterans I think particularly in Northern Ireland going way back 20 30 more years may still be charged with things that were supposed to have happened then is that something worth protesting about well I think this is one of the most sensitive areas possible you know we put people in combat we put them in harm's way and things sometimes go wrong people have to be held accountable for that but what I think the point that Johnny Mercer is making is you can't keep going on and on and on about it without reaching a conclusion and that is unfair so I mean you and I were Northern Ireland correspondents in the early days when I think you in the mid 70s early seventies you know there were things going on there which would never be allowed to happen no but in a sense nobody really knew what they were doing in these days so ordinary soldiers were sent into position yes which would not be allowed to happen today that's that's true but also on some occasions they shot people which they shouldn't have shot and now it's perfectly fair to say we need to look into that what is not perfectly fair is to keep going on and on and on and going back and back and back that doesn't mean to say you're not responsible for things you might have done when you're a young lad we are responsible for that but I talking about unfairness I think oh do you think I think the principles stand and and you know one that will certainly sit well with its constituents you know Plymouth is a big military town it's a big leaves town as well 60% libros down there and I wonder if this is a little bit of shenanigans going on you know to distance himself from a prime minister who seems like a dead woman walking and no doubt play out well with constituents and you know a lot of people believe that our former servicemen are being put through hell and they certainly believe that they need a voice in Parliament and I think his actions go down well locally the government often gives the impression that it's against all this happening that it doesn't want to open these cases but it still happens and we clear what government policy is and one of the key concerns when that was launched amongst veterans was that there would not be a statute of limitations which is obviously why many them feel that these cases are potentially open-ended and of course there was there was a charge it was a double murder charge wasn't the last month that soldier was relating double murder charge relation to the Bloody Sunday incident and the previous defense secretary Gavin Williamson who had who was a lot on behalf of veterans was suggested he was concerned about how that might play eyes and the suggestion for number 10 this morning is that there's no immediate end in sight to this consultation and obviously there's a lot of people right across the spectrum both those who feel that soldiers should have the confidence that they're going to be supported by their masters but also those who feel that it's important that they're nevertheless held accountable for their actions who think that it's right that this comes to confusion sooner rather than later do you think he can you you were PPS to the former defense secretary the most recent defense secretary should there be a statute of limitations I think there is a lot of people who are calling for a statute of limitations but the concepts Kevin said it is very tricky the consultation you know there's lots of responses come forward now and the government now has to come back with the proposal if acknowledged it doesn't work today it's kind of in ether I would imagine Johnnie's trying to influence the proposals that are coming forward and that's why he's come out with his stand now he has spoken about it a lot it's tricky it's tricky because you know you can't be above the law either and I think that's the balance they're trying to get what the you could you could and that's what a lot of the veterans are calling for let's hear what Johnny Mercer the Conservative MP had to say about this they are seething in the communities that I come from that they continue to be treated in this way by a government that ultimately on whose behalf they were acting at the time this isn't just about an ordinal and this isn't about a particular individual you've seen the work I've done on the Iraq historical allegations team this is about a a flaw in our system in this country that means our veterans get treated in an appalling way with which I'm simply not prepared to put up with anymore this is not a new issue no your government has been in power for nine years why can't you make up your mind well the consultation I was Pipper said was launched just just at the end of last year and their responses are coming there's no point doing a consultation you're not gonna listen to the answers and then and there'll be a breadth of views that will come forward no Johnny's got a lot of credibility clearly because he has been a serving soldier he served in I think Iraq and Afghanistan with neither of which I've done so he does have a lot of credibility and you know he's listened to on this issue as are many of the other military veterans in the Conservative Party who all seemed to be pretty much coming down in the same area as Johnny which is another example of the government this has been something that could have been dealt with any time over the last 40 years I mean it could have been just think of the last night and actually Johnny I think probably has done a lot to bring full with this issue as well you know in 20 2015 he was elected and he's certainly been a powerful voice for military veterans so he's done a lot the consultation launched last year there's no point doing that and then not listening to the answers they know it's not working well they absolutely acknowledging that so there will be some change it's also interesting though that a backbench conservative MP can say I'm going on strike on this issue but I'm not resigning the Tory whip I'm still taking my money and nothing happens every discipline is now non-existent I mean there are other it's a bit sad but we've had actually within years of this for two or three years of it we've got a prime minister going cap in hand to the Europeans and saying please give me more time we've had all kinds of shameful things and it's got to come to an end is not for sissies the hung parliament is because you're a prime minister called a general election which nobody wanted and she lost so that's why we've got majority I didn't happen I asked you the question before you were so rudely internet part across Parliament actually and about how brexit is has suck the oxygen out of everything over the last couple of years and you know we have this a week we have seen a bill banning live animals a circuit in circuses we've had Kew Gardens car parking charges I mean this is this is how our own piece is spending their time where you don't get nothing you have things like I just came back from New York every kid come up to me and said the Kew Gardens yeah but us seriously it's a serious point you have things like that social care green paper a massive issue facing countries needs to be resolved which is stuck in the pipeline and not only that this did the discipline of the government is seems to be crumbling Johnny Mercer isn't the first you've got Nick balls sitting there as an independent or iam he not quite sure where these parts the party or not as he's resigned but he's an independent conservatives who he will vote with the government on many of the governor's majority must be pretty close to zero now even with the DUP I think I think it is three or four but then for then to be honest the government majority is not short for a while if you're not doing anything it doesn't matter they told me the numbers for breakfast and she if she hasn't got them then we're not going anywhere indeed and you mentioned brexit I hope to escape it but clearly not today the Labour Party this morning in Medway launched its manifesto and it's a European election campaign mr corbyn who was there let's listen to what he had to say so far in those talks there's been no big offer and the red lines remain in place it's actually quite difficult negotiating with a disintegrate in government with cabinet ministers jockeying for succession rather than working for an agreement it is in the country's interest to try to get this sorted one way or the other but we can never accept the government's bad deal or a disastrous no deal so if we can't get a sensible deal along the lines of our alternative plan or a general election labor backs the option of a public vote on it so a big day for the Labour Party launching its election campaign for the European elections mr corbyn out there taking the campaign off so we'll now speaker to Labour about its election manifesto for the European elections well actually we want because for the first time ever in my career as a journalist which is reasonably long a party launching a campaign document has failed to put anybody up with whom we can discuss the labour election European manifesto that is quite a first I've got a whole list of questions here that I wanted to ask I could go through them now does the manifesto say that is labour a romaine party or a relief party would be nice to know that is fudging brexit causing labour votes have you farted again in this manifesto and so on Jeremy Corbyn said the local election show that the bricks that brexit needs sorting does the Labour manifesto sort brexit in Labour's eyes and so on and so on but there's no inter I suppose I could answer these questions myself but I'm only paid to ask them if that isn't unusual enough Julian Keegan we understand that your party the Conservatives might not even have a a European manifesto well I think it's pretty clear that we're relieved party we're pretty clear that we'd like to leave with a deal pretty clear that we would like to leave whilst keeping the economy which is doing unbelievably well if we write it but I mean yes that's what we stand for I mean that's what we are you gonna have a manifesto I don't know I'm not writing manifesto but that's clearly Conservative MP we are now beginning the European election campaign and you do not know if your party will have an election manifesto well it would be pretty simple to write it as it's pretty simple to write why not having Eve remain and they may do I don't know I don't know where they are or not I don't know for a minute to see where we are in politics Conservative Party is on this we've got labour who have produced an election manifesto though my understanding is a big chunk of it is done to do with Europe but they have but they can't put anybody up and we've got the Conservatives who are here they have put Julian Keegan up but she can't tell us whether the via Tory election manifesto this is unprecedented this was of course the election which the government did not want to and it's still saying not only now that it needs to go ahead that they don't want any piece to take their seats they seem to be living with this fantasy idea that somehow an agreement can be reached and the withdrawal act be put through Parliament before MPs take their seats at the end of the month knife I can't see that and of course on recess all this morning Andrea let's some announced that MPs are going off for a weeks recess at the end of this month we have three days before the European elections the week of the European elections whether suggesting they might bring back the withdrawal agreement withdrawal act and give MPs another vote but I just can't see a coherent being reached with labour in time to do that because there's no way the government is going to bring it back if it's going to be countered at every single turn by the Labour Party you said it would be easy to write the manifesto though it isn't yet written as far as we know but what would you manifesto actually say about leave if you had one ninety percent of conservative members of parliament have voted to leave with the withdrawal agreement okay so we've have a small group who haven't now unfortunately that's enough to stop it happening but mobile all the evidence we have is that most of your party party activists are against the mrs. Mayer's withdrawal agreement there could be I mean I've seen some of the polling with as certainly as you look at party membership they are certainly more and more for a No Deal or you know but for a deal that is it misses miss so you if you ever get around to writing this manifesto you've only got two weeks to do it would be fighting an election on a manifesto that the overwhelming majority of your conservative members don't like well they haven't you know it's difficult just to say where they don't like it or not and it's the same with these guys 600 pages that we draw lagrimas 597 pages if you read through in details it is actually a very sensible agreement in terms of trying to unravel a 45-year history with European Union when I say to people which particular bit of that don't you like they can virtually never answer it is a political declaration or what they think of a future deal where all the focuses so the actual withdrawal agreement if you remember your members are too thick to understand too thick but I wouldn't expect them to read it they've we've read it on their behalf which is why 90% of us I've agreed with it which is why the ceiling there is no enthusiasm for fighting an election on the may withdraw agreement in your party right there's no enthusiasm for fight in this election . we know it's going to be incredibly difficult for us we know that there will be obviously a very simple message on the lee side we can leave it out and no deal you know a kind of no Levin's brexit simple slogans will be back to you know the simple slogans of No Deal no it won't it won't project fear all of that will come back up and effectively what you're going to end up with is more division in the country more people not actually knowing the detail of what we're trying to do and this is much more complex than anybody standing on those platforms will will talk about in my view they never have they never mention the Irish backstop in the in their in the campaign they never mentioned No Deal even in the campaign now it seems to be a preferred position or a negotiating position this is all will be back to the you know the peddlers of simple brexit and it is not simple to do breaks it again it's only not as simple as we were told at the time this should be open season yeah the brexit party you the changed UK it's manna from heaven you know tours at the brakes authority because what we see from the outside world ordinary people look at politicians and look at politics and conclude right this is all broken you know Labour say today they were going to unite the country the contine unite their own party you know you got Lord of Darkness saying if you voted for brexit don't vote for labour you've got he's withdrawing that he it's on the series was given a statement to read out the withdrew it's it's all over the UK and it's being believed and what's happening here is that people look at this career politician and think if you can't get us to leave then maybe you should leave and that's what this whole revolution is about because I mean this is a hugely simplistic message and jillian is right about that and it's worse than a simplistic message it contains within it lies you have been lying about me in the past 24 hours your party has been lying you have lied in social media in saying that I believe that people who voted for brexit or village idiots I have never said it in post you said the TV top pieces who represent the Britain or tea or village idiot you lied look me in the eyes it is lied what I said was we need more experts in British politics which we need fewer we need excuse me Chris Grayling's we need people who know what they're talking about if I go to the dentist I go to somebody who knows what they're doing I don't go to someone who is a village idiot did you used to work in the news of the world so you can take that jolly good you lied and that's one of the reasons I'm in politics because you have lied about me yesterday he was challenged by – about – about polity activist standing for London one of whom is Pakistani guy was an Indian guy yesterday did you you said I think – the huff Huffington Post website the TV news must stop giving your time to the villages what I said what I said was that we need experts to negotiate trade deals we need experts who know what they're talking about and excuse me and the concept of balance as seen in the BBC and elsewhere I my the BBC I work for it for many years we've got to be very careful we can balance political opinions but you can't balance truth and lies you can't do that did you use the phrase villages I did used it because I'm talking Kings I was actually talking about Michael Gove saying we've had enough of experts and I said I've not had enough of expert Michael Gove and I go and have our teeth filled by an expert called Adventist we don't go to the village idiot that's what I said all right this is a lie okay well you've made that clear we chase the Huffington Post twisted your words and speaking of village idiots in the past three months the independent group has changed its name to change UK your logo was rejected by the Electoral Commission and won't appear in the ballot paper your Twitter account was hijacked by brexit ears to change it to the cringe UK party we don't know who your permanent leader is and you've had to drop some of your candidates in the first two days of adopting them and we're still better than a Conservative Party that's not a great track record it's not bad for two weeks look I've been involved in this for three months well I've hadn't been involved within three months I've been involved with it for two weeks and in a couple of weeks fighting election which nobody thought we were going to do we're trying to create a party I can tell you I was hugged by people in the tube this morning coming here that doesn't happen we don't talk to each other and there's no your wallets because they think that something is changing in British politics well people have changed the minds he changed his mind he voted remain a couple of years ago it's fine for him to know be a leaver you're quoted as saying that on Twitter okay I'll take your word you didn't he at the launch when your party was launched no nothing you were in right at the wasn't right but when we looked at that of the Chuco Munoz Liana supras and yourself avenge it come in they look like a people sort of bunch of sophisticated media savvy people honestly but in a way a lot of this not even getting the logo right it's almost like what we would tend to think of the UK party has become Andrew I would love to have a great logo but what I really want is a people's vote on all the things that you were talking about I think if it is such a great idea we should go to the polls and ask the people again because they've changed their minds people change in their minds and so you know I hands up logo they must a bite but it was on the ballot paper and use won't logo supplied it came through this morning well I'm I'm absolutely fine not having a logo but having principles that's why why if you're a remain supporter and particularly if you want a second referendum absolutely which is particularly with your party was why would you vote for the yours what seems to be a disorganized pop up party rather than the Liberal Democrats or the Greens who have an established track record or the SNP in Scotland I mean they're in favor of the Maine and I hope the remain vote is really really big but as you know it's technically not possible in these European elections given the time scale to form a kind of unified view between these parties I think change UK brings something different I think the people who started it were very brave they're not time servers within the Labour Party of the Conservative Party they jumped put the political careers in the line and I actually think that politics is totally broken in our country we've got people who argue where people who are and actually market where people who are utterly misleading and we've got people I'm sorry but who don't know what they're doing the incompetence of the Conservative Party the anti-business attitude of your former foreign secretary is is doing our country down and making us look because I've only been in politics for two years but I've spent three decades working in manufacturing industries in technology industries in airline industries in all the industries affected by brexit I understand it when I read it I completely understand it so I would take exception to that I'm not the only one many people understand how complex these businesses are and how much they were and how much they've been integrated over forty five years and those people are people like me who have chosen to take an approach to brexit which respects the fact that for 45 years we've been doing it a different way nobody kept a wiring diagram and we have to unravel it in a way that keeps our economy and keeps the jobs for people in this country strong so I absolutely take objection I'm not a career politician your career spout errs of information maybe but I have worked in all of these industries at the coalface I understand it perfectly and I will not be told by somebody who either wants a No Deal breaks it as though that's still people out there what's the shirt obviously the Koran out for real people and it's really politicians who are doing this trying to do something it's not simple doesn't your party have a manifesto because as Nigel said with four weeks old and it will come out after the elections until then we've now got one party that's published a manifesto but won't put anybody up to defend it another party that isn't publishing a manifesto and now a third party is going to publish its manifesto after the election we have we've gone down the others and wonders and breaks it and this election it's happening till then it's brexit the only party on that ticket there are three plus veteran remain there was only one party on their ticket offering a WTO No Deal calm brexit no such thing misleading you your policy is to leave on no deal on WT I will terms yes so to leave no deal yes without a deal yes the people didn't vote for that in the referendum well people we were told by those on the leave side there not only would there be a deal but actually would be a great deal it would be an easy deal it would be a piece of cake deal people voted on the assumption that there would be some kind of deal on that 10 or deal he said remain in the European Union or leave European Union and to a great many people that meant to get out now what it meant to get campaigning now we are telling ourselves it wasn't talking about the time David Cameron said quite clearly we were leaving the single market that was over and over again on television so that the constantly is why they Boris Johnson even Nigel Farage told us we would leave on a deal now you're telling is it's your party's policy that we leave on No Deal well after three years of trying to do a deal which it's been impossible because nobody can agree on anything because it's a hung parliament premise is the European Union of made quite clear where you used to be to go back to the morrow government to go back to them in several months time having left without a deal the same issues would still be on the table we'd still have to pay the due European before the Union divorce bill we'd still have to negotiate a trading relationship extra and not only that we'd have to be backstop and not only that but we'll be doing it from a position which compared to now much weaker negotiating position because we were already have left so it is unfair it is it is not I think as a representative of a party fair to your supporters of whom there are many who are disfranchise it disenfranchised with everything that's going on you and feel really and it's not just you know it's all the political parties it's across the spectrum and just listening to some of this now but this is why people are fed up with brexit because put on organs come on they want to vote for the fed up with this some do favor of the people's vote yeah are you in favor of what you think we should be allowed to vote but because we should the first love democracy first that's the point the Democratic Act has been passed and politicians refuse to put it into in recent days really quite firmly believe believe in leaving the European Union who say who are actually starting just in just a handful not many but who is starting to say well actually maybe the solution to this is the second referendum because if as you say the majority people want to leave and do we now know what on what terms that would be that would give people a clear choice now that's it that's a gamble remain I've got a wave behind them and you also know about the dodgy money okay let's just come into your party which you won't say until where's the source of that money dude you said it's dodgy well if it was upon you if I gave you 100 thousand pounds and thought you were a great party I would be boasting about it why is it that your donor isn't yes it will do clear why is it that your donor is so ashamed of you they don't say oh well why don't they say who they are good because you say you ashamed of that situation coming from but coming back to this issue of a second referendum given that every prominent spokes man and woman on the leave side told us that we would leave with a deal you're not telling as you want us to leave without a deal surely that would require a second referendum because it's very different from what was voted on in 2016 we could argue that forever but you know many people believe many people believe that they voted just to get out of the European Union many people have interpreted it differently such line but the point is we have a bunch of politicians and civil servants going to Brussels to do a deal after three years and the general public out there see this as incompetence and they say that as people that need to are at least just a hung parliament won't pass it the residue cavernosa can I just I've got the full quote now of what you said you said TV news must stop giving your time to the village idiots of breakfast brexit thank you our breakfast I thank you my breakfast with villages anyway TV news must give stop giving your time to the village idiots a brexit jubie's would you be quiet while I get this the dubious right-wing supposed think tanks and quotes and pseudo experts yes among ERG MPs who simply happen to clue what the implications of brexit no but this is a lie it was not photos it's absolutely clear you select if you like but you are doing and I do it again I just say it's quite difficult Gavin as long as you you know for an organization that the BBC the MPs who represent the ERG their elected members of parliament no I have a legitimate point absolutely couldn't no no I'm not not to not have them what I'm saying is we want people with expertise to be challenged and about their expertise and you have expertise and there's plenty but all right everybody people have said some things which are clearly not true okay well the FAC use Asians of lying final around being like American television these days on fox or MSNBC so I think let's go where let's go to Transylvania I'm not being there for a while not since I was thirsty uh and let's go to the EU summit because it's taking place in Transylvania reporter Adam Flemming is there Theresa May is not because this is just the eu27 is about the future of the EU Adam what what do we have any indications of how they see a post brexit future well first of all Andrew this summit was wrapped up two years ago by jean-claude juncker who originally wanted it to happen on the day after the original brexit day so it was meant to be the 30th of March some people had a quiet word of them and said do you really want to have that sort of triumph or this victory party sort of vibe let's do it on Europe Day in May instead which is where in some countries in the EU have a public holiday to celebrate the EU and here we are of course the UK still hasn't left so it's still not quite gone to plan and what is quite amazing actually is that even though Teresa May isn't here Steve Berkeley the brexit secretary has been attending a different conference about the future of Europe in this city about 10 minutes walk that way so if you wanted to be charitable it's proof that the two UK and the EU will still face the same challenges so they can still come to the same city to discuss them if you're being less charitable you'd say the big boys and girls sit around the table here and the UK is relegated to a venue outside the secure zone but in terms of what the 27 are talking about they've just issued the so-called CBU declaration which is 10 commitments don't call them Commandments about the way forward and they look very much like commitments that they had in the past acting as one EU uniting north south east and west acting where you need to not where you don't need to being a strong actor on the global stage looking after citizens and being fair and having fairness at the heart of everything you do all very much motherhood and apple strudel but the reason they've signed up to those 10 very grand quite bland commitments is because they want this to send out a big symbol and a big message to voters across the EU who will be voting in the European Parliament elections in about two weeks time and the message is we are the sensible ones who sit around the table and discuss problems like adults look at those nasty populist and nationalists who don't want the table to even be here in the first place item thank you for that enjoy yourself there don't go out at dark unless you've got plenty of garlic I don't want to read about you Adam there the EU summit as they try to work out the future of Europe with the European Parliament a new commission coming in new budget round as well in Europe we're coming back to dear Blighty to look at the future if it has one of the Conservative Party and we're joined now by the times Collins Melanie Phillips was written on the Sun about that just before we come to Melanie let's go another leading conservative if I can put it that way has thrown her hat into the ring to be the future conservative leader this one's esta make V I think she's Chief Secretary to the Treasury let's see what she had to say we don't know yet when that there will be with if there will be but there will be a little Tory leadership contest will you be throwing your hat in the ring well I've always said quite clearly if I got enough support from my colleagues yes I would and now people have come forward and I have got that support so I will be going forward there we go so that's about three or four declared so far but there's about another 10 or 12 that we pretty sure are running I mean I guess Boris Johnson I mean I know I may be out on a limb there Dominic Raab there many others there I mean there could be 1520 people in this what about you Julian you fancy just show you the names here better Rigby the new political editor aside McVeigh let some Stewart they probably could put their hat in the ring then we have Johnson Javid Hancock hunt Rob perhaps golf Harper cleverly modern now so Louis who have I missed you think Melanie Phillips there's no real conservative party these days that's worth leading well if I wrote in The Times and then proportion the Sun I think that the crisis facing the Conservative Party which is clearly you know bricks it is in everyone's minds but I think it goes deeper I think the Conservative Party in the minds of many conservatively minded voters has forgotten what it is it has to conserve it has I think been spooked by the cultural hegemony of the left over many years has adopted their positions on many in many respects and as a result I think the whole center of political gravity has changed so we now the Labour Party occupying ground which hitherto was considered to be the hard lift and we have the Conservative Party occupying a kind of mushy ground which is in fact the soft lift leaving a total hole where the Conservative Party is enter Nigel Farrar who is simply a one-issue person and so there is a crisis I think of conservatism I should just correct myself as some maybe he's not chief secretary to the Treasury she resigned from the government so just to get that on the record do you thinking what you say to that well you know I don't have the same ideological frame I think that Melanie has and maybe that's because you know I grew up in nosey I left school at 16 I became a natural conservative then we're not many conservative influences around me some of the ideologies you talk about a bit of a luxury for me so you know I started an apprenticeship in a car factory and what made me conservative I still think is what the Conservative Party is and will be its strength which is equality of opportunity you know you might miss out on the school side hopefully you don't but if you do I went to a failing comprehensive school you get the chance at an apprenticeship or in a grammar school you get a quality of opportunity you get that support to make the most of your opportunities when you have when something goes wrong in your life and you need that support it's there for you and it provides the support you need so I didn't study political political philosophy and you know I struggle to keep up with you on the moral maze sometimes but I don't frame it in that way what I stand for I believe is the future of the Conservative Party and it is where I believe also is the future of UK and politics and most people in this country and not on the extreme of trying to overturn democracy or trying to pretend that things aren't very slow you say melanism extremism probably somewhere that is not cool not where I am but probably further right than I am but there's probably an awful lot we could agree on and the framing of it is perhaps some thought all right let me ask most of the likely contenders to be next leader is there anybody that for you embodies the kind of conservatism you would want not what I've seen not at all yep so from your point of view range there it's hopeless even 15 names not one of them appeals certainly so far that has been the case I don't know I mean it may be that some that some of these candidates have maybe you just like Peter Hitchens you're just a party of one maybe I am but I think there are millions who actually think like me and I think that the way they have voted in recent years what breaks it and so on and the sort of responses I get verbally personally what I see being expressed by people I think many people are like me see what you've just said I don't disagree with at all okay call it I think many are like me but what I'm saying just to take a quality opportunity it seems to me that mrs. Mays government and going back before mrs. Mays government has ditched a quality opportunity for the way in which the left interprets equality which is identical T in other words everyone's entitled of the same outcomes regardless of circumstance and we saw this in mrs. Mays 2017 race equality audit where the implication or the assumption of that was that if people from ethnic minorities suffer disadvantages they had nothing to do with that it was done to them and it was the state that had a duty to repair that now that is the general nature to inform policy agenda of the left that is a departure to have a role in ensuring that there is opportunity for everybody regardless of race provide opportunity but not to rig the system according to an idea of who deserves the qualities built into the system and that's just a fact and that applies across the board it could be it could be a class thing it can be you know your ethnic background it can be whether you're a woman there's all sorts of different factors and I think it's only right that any government recognizes those structural inequalities and tries to do something about them everybody needs to say it to be offered to be have the opportunity to the same starting point for sure then do with that this is of course up to them and I think you're misinterpreting for sure yes naturally by suggesting that it's all about where they all end up because actually it's about giving people the the push that they need and the opportunity they need to fulfill their potential recognizing structural inequalities that exist well means that some might need a bit more help than others I think you make a very good point but my point is that the left tends to rob people of what I would call moral agency that is to say the idea that they have some responsibility for their own circumstances so the left goes overboard in assuming that they are helpless victims of circumstance whether its economic or whatever they don't get this alright let me just come back to the we've just been showing your article in the Sun she says a version of the column that was in The Times do you think if there is this enormous hole where conservatism used to be which is the headline in your article and the Sun that we're up for realignment will the brexit party change UK are they going to produce a realignment in British politics well I'm not sure that the brexit party is going to be the vehicle to do anything apart from deliver a vote on BRICS it but I do think that the circumstances mean that Britain is ripe for political realignment the old distinction between left and right has for years completely broken down I think that what divides us are now completely different things from the things that formed our current political population and social media have had a massive impact I would say is more like oh are we heading for a realignment I mean if you listen to this debate you would think so but still it won't solve the problems that they are pretending they're going to solve so if it is it will be temporary because they don't have the answers and neither deliver happening all across Europe I think we will see some socialist to the right we've come to an end above the hubbub I'll be on BBC one tonight with this week Michael potato rule is Kendall Rachel Johnson Jared batten Tim Marshall in fact just about everybody

all right there everyone britain in the netherlands lead the populous charge in the european parliament elections that's we'll be talking about on today's video that's right we're here it's arrived tomorrow begins the european parliamentary elections that we've been looking so forward to now while 21 of the EU's 28 member nations go to the polls for the European Parliament elections on Sunday May 26 that's the big Super Sunday as it were actually the elections begin tomorrow Thursday the 23rd in Britain and the Netherlands and we could not have asked for two better nations to start us off here both Britain and the Netherlands are nationalist populist hot houses that are ready to storm Brussels and redefine the european political order so let's look at what we can expect for the kickoff of the european elections on thursday but first this video is kindly sponsored by virtual shields one of the easiest and fastest Virtual Private Networks or VPNs around a VPN protects your internet

formed brexit party headed by the one and only Nigel Farage is currently pulling at a high of 35 percent of the vote which is the highest it's gotten since its formation literally like four weeks ago their aggregate polling according to Politico Europe which averages out all the polling is around 33% so just to put that in perspective yeah on Thursday it's projected that more than one in three breaths will be voting for the brexit party and you need to let that hit you more than one in three Brits will be voting for a party that is barely four weeks old when you combine the brexit party vote with the projected you Kipp vote folks we're talking upwards of 40% of the vote potentially we're talking nearly one in two voters voting for nationalist populist in Britain this is nothing drugged total dominance of the vote Labour's dropped down to 17 percent of the vote just just ahead of the Liberal Democrats who run 16 percent turay Theresa May stories they've dropped to 9 percent I mean they're there of course the whole reason why Brits have to come out and vote on Thursday Britain should have been its own sovereign nation as of what was at the 29th of March but Mays incompetence and the overall incompetence of the Conservatives and bungling the brexit that the majority of Brits voted for back in June of Oh 16 have cost them big time they are now at least when it comes to the European Parliament the Tories are now a single-digit party the Tories are officially a fringe party okay they've tied with the Greens just to give you a sense of how politically dire it is for the Tories when it comes to Thursday's election okay all projections show that we are seeing nothing short of a massive realignment in British politics nearly 2/3 of those who voted for the Conservatives back in those seventeen are going to be voting for the brexit party on Thursday the Tories are seeing an astonishing two-thirds of their voters defecting to another party so it looks like we can expect to see the brexit vote hip upwards of thirty three percent which when combined with you Kemp and perhaps the last bastion of pro leave Tories they should hit well over the 40 percent mark very very strong indeed so Britain will be the first of the one-two punch that'll floor the bullies and Brussels okay now the second punch the right comes from the Netherlands and this is where we're seeing two rebeaud it's nationalist populist forum for democracy party surging the first place in the polls I love how the news site France 24 starts off their article on here's what they write a flamboyant Dutch populist could open the floodgates for a tidal wave of Euroskeptic and anti-immigration parties across the continent in this week's Europe European Parliament elections now if you don't know boats form for democracy it's just two years old they've never held a seat in the Dutch parliament before but just a couple of months back the Dutch took to the polls for the provincial elections throughout their nation to elect representatives for their Senate and to the astonishment of all BOE debts forum for democracy went from having zero seats in the Dutch Senate to becoming the single largest party in that very Senate it was an absolutely astonishing electoral victory a miracle election in many ways keep in mind the forum for democracy is a thoroughly nationalist populist and traditionalist party and that political vision for the Netherlands has earned them a very strong first place which is not subsided Beaudette is on course now to beat Prime Minister Mark Rutte as liberals when the Dutch go to vote on Thursday and again as France 24 puts it the combination of populist support in the Netherlands and in Britain is being seen really as a bellwether a populist earthquake ahead of Super Sunday when 21 of the 28 member nations go to vote what's happening electoral II in the Netherlands really is very similar to what's been going on in Britain they're both very interesting in terms of their similarities both Netherlands and Britain have had their nationalist populist parties over the years so Britain had you kept Netherlands had gear filters Dutch Freedom Party but both you kept in the Dutch freedom Party have fallen short in the most recent rounds of elections and so there have been two new nationalist populist parties rising brexit the brexit party and now the forum for democracy both led by very charismatic and powerful leaders that seems to be key they both breathe new life into the nationalist populist movements that have seen them both surged into first place and as a result those you kept in the Dutch party of lost supporters since the supporters now see they smell victory at least with this new breath of nationalist populism and and this is why I think what just happened in Austria with the collapse of the Austrian freedom party the resignations of Heinz Chris and Straka and others this is why well that's all sad and so it's certainly unfortunate it is not defeat right nationalist populism will emerge again on the political stage in Austria either by a renewed freedom party or it like in the case of Britain in the Netherlands a new nationalist populist party surging in the first place so now having said that when combined with Garrett Villiers Dutch freedom party we should be seeing the nationalist populist in the Netherlands hitting around 25% so the headlines if they're honest the headlines on Friday morning should be reporting on a very very impressive victory for the Nationals populace on Thursday and as such they may very well have opened the gates for a tidal wave of Euroskeptic and anti-immigration parties going on across the continent as always please like comment and subscribe make sure to

Then Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, changed that. He declared that she wasn’t able to bring back the same deal again without substantial changes.

celebrate we asked my extra special content planned be sure to head over there and give us a follow so that you don't miss a thing so as you might have seen yesterday John Burke oh the Speaker of the House of Commons made a surprise announcement citing Erskine may a 19th century political document on parliamentary procedure he argued that it would not be proper for Parliament to vote on May's deal for a third time unless it was substantially different from the deal on offer last week order I wish to make a statement to the house there has been much speculation over the past week about the possibility of the government bringing before the house a motion on brexit for another so-called meaningful vote on the 13th of March however the right honourable lady the member for Wallace II asked on a point of order whether it would be proper for the government to keep bringing the same deal back to the house ad infinitum I replied that no ruling was necessary at that stage I did need to treat of them now and their ruling is required now there may be people who have an opinion about it I'm not really preoccupied with that but a ruling would be made about that matter at the appropriate time and I'm grateful to the right honourable lady for reminding me that such a ruling might at some point in the future be required said Tuesday subsequently members on both sides of the house and indeed on both sides of the brexit argument have expressed their concerns to me about the house being repeatedly asked to pronounce on the same fundamental proposition the 24th edition of Erskine may states on page 397 that and I quote a motion or an amendment which is the same in substance as a question which has been decided during a session may not be brought forward again during that same session it goes on to state that and I quote attempts have been made to evade this rule by raising again with verbal alterations the essential portions of motions which have been negative whether the second motion is substantially the same as the first is finally a matter for the judgment of the chair this convention is very strong and of long-standing dating back to the second of April 1604 one of the reasons why the rule has lasted so long is that it is a necessary rule to ensure the sensible use of the houses time and the proper respect for the decisions which it takes so far as our present situation is concerned let me summarize the chronology of events the draft EU withdrawal agreement giving effect to the deal between the government and the EU was published on the 14th of November the first scheduled vote was due to take place on the 11th of December however on the 10th of December the vote was postponed after 164 speeches had already been made over three of the five days allotted for the debate that postponement was not caused by me nor by the house but by the government indeed I pointed out at the time that this was deeply discourteous to the house over five weeks later the first meaningful vote was held on the 15th of January which the government lost by a margin of two hundred and thirty votes the largest in parliamentary history subsequently the second meaningful vote was expected to take place in February but once again there was a postponement it finally happened only last Tuesday the 12th of March the government's motion on the deal was again very heavily defeated in my judgment that second meaningful vote motion did not fall foul of the convention about matters already having been decided during the same session this was because it could credibly be argued that it was a different proposition from that already rejected by the house in procedural terms it was therefore quite proper that the debate and the second vote took place last week it has been strongly rumoured though I have not received confirmation of this that third and even possibly fourth meaningful vote motions will be attempted hence this statement which is designed to signal what would be orderly and what would not this is my conclusion if the government wishes to bring forward a new proposition that he's neither the same nor substantially the same as that disposed of by the house on the 12th of March this would be entirely in order what the government cannot legitimately do is to resubmit to the house the same proposition or substantially the same proposition as that of last week which was rejected by 149 bigots this ruling should not be regarded as my last word on the subject it is simply meant to indicate the test which the government must meet in order for me to rule that a third meaningful vote can legitimately be held in this parliamentary session this was a surprise to everyone especially the government who gave a slightly grumpy statement to the press about not being given any forewarning Berko gave three reasons for his decision firstly he claimed it was concerned with judicious use of parliamentary time when that time is finite it is a necessary rule to ensure the sensible use of the house's time and the proper respect for the decisions which it takes secondly Heathrow is useful to ensure clarity and consistency so far as the statute book is concerned and finally he argued that another vote will undermine the concepts of respect for the importance of decisions made by the house and the weights to be attached to them decisions of the house matter they have weight in many cases they have direct effects not only here but on the lives of our constituents he also explained that he let the second vote go ahead because it was substantially different to the first one because of the statutory instrument that was added at the very last second so this is obviously upset the government but what did everyone else think well quite a few breaks the tears congratulated Berko afterwards thinking that this decision makes me still less likely and therefore no deal more likely some breaks idiots argue this meant that there couldn't be another vote on a second referendum as had already been a vote on a second referendum last week but Berko said that it depended on circumstance while this announcement hasn't exactly helped the government it doesn't completely preclude the possibility of a third meaningful vote although Berko said that a substantial change would require some sort of renegotiation an EU level and not just a clarification of Jeffrey Cox's legal advice this isn't completely impossible while the withdrawal agreement is unlikely to be reopened the EU have made it clear that they're happy to expand on the political declaration that accompanies the agreement which would count as a change at the EU level there's also the possibility of some sort of deal with the DUP which could include a legally binding commitment to locking in Northern Ireland so that it stays completely within the regulatory framework in the event of a backstop surely this would count as a substantial change to the agreement finally there's one other way to get the deal through the parliamentary convention that burka was referring to in Erskine may only says the same motion can't be brought back in one session so technically the government could dissolve or prorogue Parliament Jacob Riis MOG actually pointed this out in Parliament this would mean an emergency Queen's speech from May and it would require the backing of the Privy Council which isn't guaranteed Parliament could then resume business the next day and the government won't be allowed to bring Mae's deal back again however while this is legally possible it hasn't been done since 1948 to force something through called the Parliament Act which limited the power of Lords to block bills if Mae was to do this again it will be constitutionally massive but

hello everyone a warm welcome from England behind me is a 19th century building which we are now converting into a residential block of apartments and I'm here to share with you my top five reasons for investing here in the UK but first let's have the intro the fundamental question is why United Kingdom why did I come to the UK to build my property portfolio wouldn't it be easy and convenient if I were to invest in an area where I live well up until 2014 this is the way I used to think as well like most property investors identify an area which is within 10 to 15 mile radius of where you live look for a property that will fit your budget and finally figure out whether it will make sense to invest for rental income or for capital appreciation therefore the order of preference for most property investors is area comes first property comes next and finally figuring out the strategy however successful property investors focus on strategy first that is they look to identify whether they are investing for rental income or for capital growth accordingly they will go and identify an area where that strategy fits my primary objective to invest in property remains to create passive income through rental income streams however the challenge was the rental income versus the capital that was required in my area was not stacking up for me therefore I had to expand my search and as I kept expanding my search area beyond cities and across borders I found the UK to be the ideal investment destination for investors seeking yield based strategy here are my top 5 reasons for investing in the UK number one is the possibility to earn a substantially higher rental income on property investment our focus area is the West Midlands between Liverpool Manchester up to West Yorkshire how does it help to have a high yield it places as investors in a perfect position to apply leverage and clear up our investment which brings us to point number two relatively low interest rates having a yield that is high enough and interest rates are significantly low allows investors to successfully apply leverage in other words investors can target to make positive cash flow after paying for costs such as maintenance management fees and mortgage payments number three is the established laws and conveyancing systems being overseas investors it is important for us to get comfortable with the rules regulations and the laws of the land so that we can have absolute peace of mind after investing a substantial amount abroad the UK property market is very well regulated which installs confidence in investors to plan and invest long term number four is a demand and supply equation the UK has seen a robust growth in its population while at the same time it lagged behind in supplying enough new homes this mismatch presents a good opportunity for property investors to contribute to the local housing stock and work with local authorities and housing associations to provide homes for the ones in need to give you a little more perspective on this I will share the national housing status release in the description below coming to number five so if there is so much demand via and the developers flocking to the UK to build megastructures put in the demand for my asset fall should there be an oversupply the challenges the UK is serious about protecting its green fields thereby not able to allocate sufficient space to develop new homes fast enough on the other hand the town centres are Heritage protected sites and falls under conservation areas where they are looking to retain the envelope of the tone therefore as an investor I am rest assured that the demand for my asset will continue to remain so long as I provide quality and sensible housing stock so those are my top five reasons for investing in the UK I'll be interested to know what you think do leave your comments below and make sure to subscribe to our channel by clicking the icon on the bottom right of your screen this way you'll be instantly notified the minute we upload our next video thanks for watching
good evening I'm Stephen Jordan from Inverness welcome to debate night for the next hour my panel will be answering the questions our audience want to know the answers to joining us this evening we have Edward mountain he's a conservative MSP for the Highlands and Islands and the party spokesperson on land reform he farms in the Highlands growing barley and raising cattle in a previous life he was an Army officer and he's almost certainly the only member of our panel to have shot a Python in Africa in order to save a man's life Alan Smith was Scotland's youngest MEP when he was selected for the SNP in the European elections in 2004 15 years on he is standing again in Thursday's election a member of the SMPS a Scottish national executive he was brought up in Scotland and Saudi Arabia and before politics he was a lawyer Lorien Cameron Ross was an Army medic and now works as a GP in the highlands she's also a small business owner running an artisan gem company on the shores of Loch Ness Danielle Maher describes herself as a libertarian and free-market supporter she voted to leave the European Union and says she's not scared of an OTO brexit and David Martin is the UK's longest-serving member of the European Parliament who's elected for labour in 1984 was vice president for five years and he's Labour's top candidate in Scotland for Thursday's election please welcome our panel to debate night well tonight's we're in the capital of the Highlands we're on the cusp of going to the polls all over again this time to elect members of the European Parliament as always our audience here represents a wide range of public opinion in Scotland they set the agenda with their questions and we have just under 60 minutes to get them some answers from the panel who of course don't know any of the questions in advance I wanted to know what you think about the debate from home so join in on social media using the hashtag BBC dn and follow the debate on our Twitter and Instagram feeds it's at BBC debate night on your screens for both so let's get started this week's first question that comes from Jason McClurg Jason we in the highlands have felt the benefits of European money whether that's for the farming industry funding various projects or even a Judaism industry so my question to the panelists what benefits will the Highlands and Islands gave breaks it I drew here today on signs indicating the support given for the road building by the EU your party wants us to leave what benefits will leave and bring to the Highlands and Islands Edward mountain I think it gives us the opportunity to reevaluate where we want to spend our money and there's the opportunity to do that when we leave we pay quite a lot of money into the European Union and I absolutely agree with you there's a lot of projects in the highlands that are very important and you mentioned agriculture it's that's something particularly that's important you know and we have to ask ourselves has agriculture benefited under the corn agricultural policy you know farmers of Ages have gone up we're in a situation where we're still producing the same amount of barley today that we did 10 years ago prices haven't been significantly increased and so I would argue that perhaps it hasn't worked and perhaps it hasn't worked and we know what we know it hasn't worked for our fishermen so I think there's a whole chance to reevaluate where we get the money how we spend it and we could do it on a more local basis and I think there are benefits do you think the Highlands we'd be better off after brexit I think it needs a concerted effort from all politicians to make sure that the money that the that was coming into the Highland continues come into the Highland and I think there'll be a challenge but I think it's perfectly possible Alan Smith look Greg's ax is like setting fire to your house and then wondering about whether you want to move or not there-there is no good news n brexit for the highlands and islands or for Scotland or for the UK we are already all of us right now pure before Briggs has even started because Stirling has slumped 20 odd percent it is perfectly possible for the UK government to guarantee that the EU funding that we receive know will be duplicated if Greg's ax happens they've not made that commitment it's scandalous stuff we are already seeing nvm 350 million pounds a week for the NHS we're going to see a hit for all of our public finances for all of our economic prospects and for all of us as a society it's not good enough to say that there will be opportunities in this why are we three years after the vote still looking for what they are but how do you know that [Applause] contribution is not going to Brussels what's to stop that money still coming to the Highlands and Islands through a different route it would be political choices and those political choices would be made by a UK government that is centralizing powers away from the Scottish Parliament is cutting our budgets and is going to need to deal with an economic firestorm because we're going to see trade disruption we're going to see how we actually trade with the wider world massively impacted by this mrs. Mays deal enters into a two-year yet another cliff edge that were hurtling towards while we try to work out what our trading relations are we have the best deal right now as part of the EU it is perfectly legitimate to say you want to leave the EU but if you're proposing change you need to say what you actually want to change it to otherwise it is a deeply deeply dishonest intellectual exercise so there are opportunities of course we could we could be Canada we could have a different trading range way that we could be Ukraine with a different trading original we could be Turkey we could replicate something else but until we know what the change is going to be and the reason why the leave campaign didn't tell you what it was was because you wouldn't have voted for it because we have the best deal right now which is why we need to stop drags it all together [Applause] lady with her hand up well in 2014 had Scotland won independence we would have been out of the EU immediately with no guarantees of getting back in so what you're saying now isn't the same as what you would have said in 2014 madam forgive me your questions based on a false premise had we voted for independence in 2014 we would have entered into negotiations in parallel with London and with the the European Union no that was that was then this is now a lot of people voted no to independence and remember my site lost the independence referendum which we accepted utterly 55 to 45 but a lot of people voted no because of the European question because they were concerned about risking their European status risking their European rights risking our trading arrangements and they were told that the UK's a family of Nations of partnership of equals now we're being told to shut up and get to the back of the bus and let these people drag us out of the European Union against our will if you're worried about you membership it's brain service your problem [Applause] tanomo um I would just say you know you have to remember over a million Scottish people did vote to leave the EU as well and you know you sort of say we're speaking for Scotland but there's there's over a million people that your views are directly against I would say what not said I'm speaking for Scotland at all that the SNP is the government of Scotland and Scotland did fought to remain across every single counting region Shetland voted remain the most Fisheries independent part of the United Kingdom all of Scotland voted remain of course people voted leave of course a number of supporters of my party voted leave they voted Lee by and large in my experience and I've been looking an awful lot odorous lately by and large because there were specific promises that were made about fishing about cutting red tape about 350 million posts for the only chest the leaf campaign was so deeply dishonest it was everything you like you'll keep everything you don't like you'll be able to get right off on 350 million pounds a week for the NHS okay none of these promises are being met because none of these promises were honest or based on reality spectrum there Stephen Martin your Britain's longest-serving MEP you've said that remaining is non-negotiable well I think you'd be a disaster for us to leave the European Union for a variety of reasons we just go back to the point that a question you put to Alan about money I was elected as you said in 1984 1984 West Lothian which I represented them before it became an old Scottish constituency lost British Leyland that lost Plessy lost Levi jeans that lost domains and the Thatcher government had no interest in a regional policy for that area and it was Europe mckimmon and regenerated at forty percent male unemployment the UK government had no interest in directing funds to the area and it was a European Union that delivered that economy out of the pit citizen and I think the Highland and Islands would suffer exactly the same if European money disappears I wouldn't be putting any money on the fact that the UK government will replace that money directly so the idea that we're only getting a little bit back from Europe is not not an issue not Elena I buy going back to another issue and of trade that was made mentioned when what we keep hearing from the brexit ears is we could trade with Europe on w2 your terms but we want to have a global Britain well the global Britain thing is about doing trade deals with the rest of the world that are not WTO compatible so how come we want a WTO arrangement with our biggest trading partner and our nearest trading partner but we want to be free to do trade deals with the rest of the world it makes absolutely no party leader Jeremy Corbyn seems quite happy to enable brexit I don't think he's happy today ball breaks it let me it's not an easy message to get across but let me explain his position he accepted as he says he wants to deliberate the result of the referendum he took the view that we had not you you know we my I'm an unashamed remain out I didn't make no bones about that and I ask you a question sure when was the last time you spoke to Jeremy Corbyn as Britain's longest-serving MEP when was the last time you spoke to him about Breton about Europe and what was that conversation okay precisely roughly about three weeks ago and it was actually making the case that we I was making the case to him that we had to be clearer on the second referendum but let me just very quickly explain why I understand even if I disagree where Jeremy Corbyn is coming from on this issue he takes the view that we are a United Kingdom party the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union so he had a view that he has to try and deliver on that he also the view that maybe undeliverable and we've just discovered on Friday that is undeliverable and if you heard him on the morrow Graham this morning he's saying that we cannot find a decent brexit therefore we have to go back to the people we have to have a second referendum but we differ again the fresh differentiator from other parties in this as well because there is no point having a repeat of 2016 if it's do you want to leave what you want to remain and no matter what answer you get you've not really got an answer if it's these two binary questions what you need is a package so you can go to the people and say this is a package on which you would leave the European Union as Ireland says whether it be Norway Canada turkey and all the other options that have been put forward or even WTO terms you need a package on which you're going to leave against remaining and then two people have a clear choice and whatever they decide then can be delivered and should be delivered and Lauren Cameron Ross I mean this is difficult for me I don't have all the facts and figures but I can speak as a small business that launched her business the month after the referendum as a small business in the Highlands and Islands I was supported with some European funding to help me get off the ground I'm not sure I would have done that been able to do it without that support I have seen that money sort of be dwindling away slowly so I know that there are other people who would have been in the same situation as me who won't have been privileged enough to have that funding and may not have got their business idea off the ground the other thing and the other effect it has on small businesses is when you're as critical growth stage and the next obvious stage would have been to move into Europe with your project and you're a small company you've got limited resources to get into Europe now would require a lot of energy and a lot of resource if I'm going to direct that now and then have to do something different in six 12 18 months time then then that's an awful lot of wasted time and effort for us so it's paralysed the growth of my company and I won't be the only one okay Edward Lorien sitting next to you convinced so this is going to be all right our business is going to be all right as the way you see it well I absolutely do but can I just go back to a point well I will make the point I will make the point if I may on the businesses we have various enterprise boards in Scotland we've got hie that spends a lot of time and taxpayers money promoting businesses across Scotland and we've got the Federation of small businesses all of which can help and I absolutely believe that with correct investment these can take things and businesses forward and encourage them in the highlands which is why I supported the Scottish Government in introducing the south of Scotland Enterprise Agency something that was woefully lacking down there so I absolutely believe with the right funding we can do it but I must just go back to a point that Helen made and and and I want to be clear on this is that when we had the referendum on leaving the EU I was a remainer but I'm also a politician and I have a Democrat responsibility responsibility to respond to the Democratic wishes of the people which is to implement the referendum now the Labour Party and the Conservative Party in 2017 the majority of their MPs to answer said that they would respect the wills and would implement the referendum now the problem is is we become very tribal upon this but all the parties fighting and not coming up with an agreement and there could be an agreement if people work together and I wish we could work together across party lines to deliver what the people wanted because it's unfair not to people were made clear in 2016 when they voted if you vote to leave the United Kingdom will leave the European Union at CU that's what we let's hear what our audience think about this lady in the front row just there yes don't you think that Westminster no matter what color of party is in power at Westminster is not gonna make the best choices for Scotland because when it comes to you know the additional I mean you know farmer the additional money the hill farmers are supposed to get and it's not passed on in places like this and then you have the threat of something like Boris Johnson becoming Prime Minister who says that a pound and Londoners better spent there than a pound in Scotland don't you think that the best choices first Scotland are made locally [Applause] when you raise they're about convergence payments we've always been clear in Scotland as a Conservative Party that we would like to see that money come to Scotland it hasn't come to Scotland and the law of use carrying out to review it at the moment and we've all said that we believe it should come back to Scotland and a Michael Gove when he gave evidence to the rural economy and connectivity committee earlier in the week said that he he would abide by the decisions in that and would promote that now I just made the observation to you and I've questioned focusing on this I said to focus you if the money came back to Scotland would that money go directly to the farmers who should have had it and the answer was well we'll see it might have to go into the rural economy now that's really not an argument if we really wanted to get this argument and we want to support our farmers let's make sure that the money that is paid in Scotland goes to the farmers and not this isn't edinburgh better policed or infamous to take decisions about farm what's best for farmers in the island than london i absolutely agree that and it's better place to make decisions than europe which is why farming is totally devolved to the scottish parliament which is why we have a cabinet secretary who is responsible to the scottish parliament and no one tells him how to spend or out a gentleman there with his hand up yes Scotland is part of the United Kingdom and United Kingdom has voted to leave the European Union like it or not it's the decision the Democratic decision from the people why will the politicians and the parties not work together to deliver a positive brexit rather than infighting amongst each other Martin talks broke down last week how did you feel about that did you feel we could ever have been successful I think the Labour Party had a for the reasons just mentioned had an obligation to try and find whether there was a decent breaks it I think I was always skeptical about whether there's such a thing was possible in fact it was certainly personally certain no such thing you think Jenny Corbin really wanted a deal yeah I think he went in genuinely we went in with the very simple demands that we stay in the customs union to avoid the problems of selling abroad for example let me give you one example at the moment if you sell cheese from this country to the European Union you need to zero documentation apart for your invoice if you sell cheese to the continent after a heart breaks it you will need at least 11 pieces of paper to cover that if you're a big multinational company it's not a problem if you're a small business it'd be the difference between making a profit and not making a profit but we went into it we said we look at we look at the customs union we look at whether we could have alignment with single market rules we look to see if we could protect workers rights and environment rights and we sat down and negotiate and discovered none of that was possible and I think we're now at a stage where we have to go back to the people and say if did you mean it and under what conditions did you want us to leave the European Union so it's not a case of it's not respecting the will of the people but the problem of the will of the people is that people will not asked in a sense the right question they weren't asked under what conditions I wanted to leave the the European Union you can't just yeah it's like I'm sorry use analogy but it's like having a divorce it's easy to say you want a divorce and then quite difficult to degree the terms of that divorce and it's exactly the same in terms of leaving the European Union okay gentleman in the red on the side there yes you you talk about the ego she a take a customs union there's absolutely no guarantee that Europe would actually accept such an arrangement anyway the European Union made it very clear Michel Barnier and the chief negotiator produced what became famous and political circles but maybe not among the general public of a so called steps diagram where he showed all the various options the problem was Britain asked what Britain asked for under mrs. and her mrs. may was at the bottom rung but he said they would be happy that the customs union that if be happy to have the customs union plus single market alignment and and so on the Canada Plus but none of that was asked for by the United Kingdom so it wasn't a case that we didn't it was refused by Europe reserve case that we didn't go to Europe and actually ask for Alan Smith what's gone wrong with Europe when you drive around the Highlands as we've done many of us today and you see the benefits that the European Union has brought here why is that message not go across you're sitting here with David you could both lose your seats this week here the way the polls are looking here in Scotland but the the rise of the brexit party here why is the message about the benefits of Europe not connected with people here I think Alan could be a little more comfortable on this one on air count everything is up for grabs forgive me Scotland voted 62% to remain [Applause] the people voted to leave the people of the Highlands and Islands the people in Verna's the people that David and I represent along with Edward the people of the Highlands and Islands voted massively to remain no it wasn't a unanimous vote of course it wasn't but the leave campaign lied to you they broke electoral finance law they broke campaign finance law they broke data protection law they made promise after promise after promise that was not capable of being fulfilled in the real world which is why three years later were still gutting about trying to find a single actual advantage to Prague's it if they told you the reality of what they were proposing you wouldn't vote for it and the opportunities inbreds it I'm sorry are like a car crash as good news for a garage or a divorce as good news for a lawyer it's not good news for society and our society in Scotland and the Highlands and Islands in particular we are in a building that was part funded with EU cash that could have been funded by domestic revenues and domestic xjq but that would take political choices which brings me to the farming money thank you for raising it madam Scottish farmers were done over six years ago I was on the European Parliament's Agriculture Committee at the time the money accrued to the UK because Scottish farmers got a particularly poor deal negotiated by the UK government so the money came to the UK and everybody but everybody even the Scottish Conservatives to their Jew did say this should just gone straight to Scotland and the UK agricultural committee kept men decided instead to allocated elorg along the Barnett formula so England gotta Burt whales get about northern algobit now I don't begrudge there for him as money but that was coming to us and six years later we've still not gotta and review after review after review cannot disguise the fact that the Tories did us over and are continuing to do it now that's what Briggs it's going to look like this time next week we'll know exactly how this all work so debate night takes a break next week the cause of that would be a special results programme on BBC Scotland bringing you up to date

Now there’s a psychological malady for you. A condition based on Remainers feeling done down by all those leave voters.
And according to politico.eu, getting angry is not working for Remainers, so it’s time to see a shrink! So they put Remainers on the couch and said the results of Brexit Anxiety Disorder are not pretty.
“They are acting no differently to what psychologists would expect from those suffering from chronic anxiety caused by loss of control and insecurity, Dr. Philip Corr, professor of psychology and behavioural economics at the University of London, and Dr. Simon Stuart, a clinical psychologist, told POLITICO.”
And the article goes on to say that:
“According to Corr and Stuart, this emotional response is “standard psychological stuff.” To find solace and some level of security amid the disorder, Remainers are following a well-trodden path to polarized group think, dismissing their social “inferiors” who voted for Brexit as stupid, racist and easily misled.”
And the more that Remainers talk and rage about it, the more they will wind themselves up.
Maybe they just need to calm down and relax a bit more.
Anyway, next time you see a wound up Remainer, please be pleasant and polite, and just ask if they’re feeling a bit BAD today?
As Nigel Farage found out, being a Brexiteer is risky enough on terra firma, but up there in the sky it’s much more dangerous.
First we had Nigel Farage crashing to earth and getting injured when the ‘plane he was in nose-dived into the ground while towing an election banner on the day of the 2010 general election.
Now we have former Brexit minister Steve Baker being forced to resort to his reserve parachute when the main ‘chute failed during a skydive in Portugal.
“Pleased my reserve parachute… worked as advertised after a main malfunction last week,” he said on Instagram. “Emergency landing on nearby golf course perfect, next to clubhouse. Wished you were there etc.”
To all Brexiteers, stay safe – keep your feet planted firmly on the ground!
Now, according to that arch-Remainer, Lord Adonis, the Labour Party would be finished if it went into a snap general election backing Brexit.
Well, he would say that, wouldn’t he.
But he is basing it on a new poll that suggests that Labour’s support relies heavily on voters who favour Remain.
The YouGov poll of 4,900 people conducted for the anti-Brexit group ‘Best for Britain’ and ‘Hope Not Hate’, said that The Tories would be ahead of Labour by four points if Labour backed Remaining in the EU, but if Labour backed Brexit then the Tories would have a huge nine point lead over Labour.
Also, the poll indicates that a Brexit backing Labour Party would lose votes to the Lib Dems to the extent of ten points.
“If Labour becomes an accomplice to Brexit, it is finished.” Said Lord Adonis.
The trouble is that there are many working class Leave voters that may well jump ship if the party takes Remain as its new policy. And there are also the Labour Brexiteer MPs to consider, but you have wonder if they will find themselves de-selected by the time of any election – even a snap one.
Finally, what of the party leader himself? Jeremy Corbyn does seem to have been very quiet on Brexit these days.
But it seems that the Labour Party needs his name at the helm, even if he does favour the leave argument – but I wonder how long that will last.
But funnily, both the Tory and Labour Party leaders actually look quite secure in their jobs at present. Not because of what they are or are not doing or supporting, but because a leadership election in either camp would probably be disastrous for their respective parties right now.
The leader of Best for Britain, Eloise Todd, said:
“…it’s time for the opposition to give people what they want: a clear choice on Brexit between leaving and staying and reforming the EU, not a fudged deal that works for Westminster elites and no one else.”
Now, I’ll agree with her that the Chequers deal is a fudge. But I cannot agree that ‘staying and reforming the EU’ is an option. It is not.
Apart from the referendum result itself, the UK cannot reform the EU! And no-one has ever shown me how the UK can reform the EU.
