11:34 am
burns. johnson may still be able to survive a current little stool, but that doesn't mean that a support at the authority in the leadership really had within the conservative party will remain the same. it will be a lot of conservative and pays, he speaking to the constituents in thing, but actually pass that seats are in danger. as a result of this, if is more allegations down the line, if the report is coming out fines, birth johnson to be guilty of any wrong doing that, i do think we can see the prime minister either resigning or forced to resign by his own employees. let's move your paddle, hello, ashley. tom and i need really good to have all 3 of you with us to date and quality . ponder tre, audience, stand by for that. ash welcome to the screen. please introduce yourself to our global audience. i am ash stalker. i'm contributing as a media and i'm a right aaron long. nice to have you tom. it's been
11:35 am
a while since he had on the stream. welcome back. we might audience, hey, you are what you day. yeah. hi, my name is tom. all i'm the to correspond, luke usa tv channel here in the u. k. nice. the hadn't had a nice even. what you had to do. i need to know exactly who knew me is if you haven't me was about to tell you welcome. i am the father out there is presenter and correspondent braced in our european folk. our center here in land. i guess. let's start with david davis. he's a conservative and pain, a former minister. this is what he said on wednesday, june question time have a listen. have a look in like many on these benches us when we amongst defending the prime minister against often angry constituents. i reminded them of his success and delivery breakfast and many other things. but i expect my
11:36 am
leaders, he shoulder the responsibility for the actions they take. yesterday he did the opposite of that. so i'll remind him of a quotation altogether too familiar to him of leeway. murray to neville chamberlain . you saw there too long for all good. you have done in the name of god go tom, what do you make of that? so direct lot sitting on the fence. so direct and so historic. the words of leo amory in 1940 brought about the downfall of neville chamberlain grinning about winston churchill time as prime minister. that was an event that happened in the house of commons. and indeed that itself was a quote of a former lord protector of england. oliver cromwell, who dismissed one of his parliaments with the words in the name of god, go so really evoking a hundreds of years old tradition within parliament are really quite powerful
11:37 am
statement. and one that was punctuating an interest in prime ministers questions. because of course, this problem, this is question time where the prime minister walk in only 5 minutes beforehand, a member of parliament defected from the conservative party to the opposition party to the labor party. this had a really interesting effect in the mood of the chamber to some extent. you notice a lot of the empties behind or is johnson who might not be. so a few sit in the court. of course, johnson just a few hours earlier, a saw in effect to the real enemy was this intervention from david davis. a former cabinet minister, a senior back bench conservative and p seemed a little bit out of whack with what the rest of the conservative seem to be doing, which was rallying around or is still in an a to a greater degree. and they were doing even just a few hours before as i'm just going to play at the moment where conservative m p
11:38 am
crossed the floor into the labor ranks. we can see christian like that. i am wondering what you made of polish johnson. stan me now. how he's handling himself under pressure ash force johnston is usually somebody who comes across as the mythic founding. absolutely busy with energy. i'm do usually looks like the kind of politician who confirm almost any lie with a little bit of a stigma and a hint of. well, this is all very silly. that domina has almost completely evaporated this week. we have seen of forest duncan, he looks, i think, genuinely, quite taken because his brief on the conservative party, which looked up the new lay unbreakable, often delivering that landslide in the 2019 general electron is now looking week by
11:39 am
the day, the significance of this and peak briskin or wake 3rd person, the floor really can't be. overstate that. what this does is that the mutiny in forest johnston's party is really coming from all side. you have the david davis who's known as what is known as a grand date, means an old, a fake, as someone with senior oversee someone who is the sort of lead newer m p 3 parliament. furthermore, and then you've got christian whitefish who is a new intake and he won his the from label on a very slim majority of only 400 vote in 2019. and he's the 1st to see, i know i could lose my lovely 8080000 pound the job in the next general election. i've got to do something. i could have put distance between myself and i'm in the entire nation. is i regret unable to put aside with a policy be winning that the again,
11:40 am
the next general election need is hard to believe this. this is all come from a series of policies and not even leslie recent parties potty to months ago. yes, i mean over the last week, nearly day by day we've been hearing more more about the breaking of rules, allegedly by staff under boris johnston. parties that may have taken place at 10 down the street or indeed other other government departments, if we thought it was bad enough with boys johnson last wednesday having to apologize for attending a garden party official residence in number 10 will. since then, we've heard about double leaving dues at 10 downing street, where officials may have been sent down to supermarkets for to buy more boos. of d. j is being hired or parties happening on the eve of the funeral of the duke of edinburgh when the country was a national morning. it has been really quite astonishing course. johnson quite stolen on monday during interviews, but i think in parliament today,
11:41 am
the ticker is johnston was back doing his best to deflect attention away from all of these allegations swirling around him. move when you talk to the phone is that you were going to be on today's program. what discussion was looting henley sat this on twitter. he should step down. this is by st. johnson because of this, hon. not to lead by example. that concept of voice jumps and actually the signing himself without being pushed me. could you even imagine that would happen? i know quite simply. no, this is a man who is a political survive rise, a teflon politician, a man who has made it very much. a part of his political career to skirt around can control the sea to get people on the side to cajole and convince where possible. the idea that he should wholeheartedly admit defeat and fallen his sword seems almost unthinkable. right now this appears at this particular moment in time to be
11:42 am
a man who will fight this to the bitter end. does looking at some our thoughts here on twitter, alex, he needs to go the lives of piled up to high, not forget the horror story that he's the covert response. let alone breaks it. one more tweet here and 7 take. i think it would be best for him to resign before he is forced to go ash. what is the feeling in the u. k. about boys johnson resigning? i'm looking at some polls and he's his popularity is gone so far down. it's even below 2 reasons. maze who was below 50 percent of favorability was a public thinking. well, you make a very good point. the family, which is the polls our own story, which is that labor are riding high. the conservatives are emerging to pool and most boring lee of all the louis getting a dropping in those red. we'll see those northern and midland states which they want to flavor in 2019 as make more conservative and peace more about their own
11:43 am
future. their own careers and of course the future of the concern is parliamentary majority. the other thing is to keep an eye on is coming up in focus groups because the mood has really tons, again, or if there's been focus groups being run by people such as you know, for me down the street dice. romulus, what being said is that he's a lawyer, he's a tom, he can't be trusted. and more than that, the conservative is being diminished by its continued association with prime minister or a strong. but these are the kinds of me pages which could get more and ease write letters in 1920 t committee, which is our huge brca a challenge to conservative policy. leda, you right guys were brain brady tunnel service and let this really know why this is what an organized the santa is big, but it, the more anyway,
11:44 am
this is the kind of thing which could and these against are still some. but as they seen today, they're fickle fuck in white boxing the school who remind them that actually the real enemy is labor or stroke. the pit of the out. no one else does. let really think it's very fibro very is certainly incredibly see brought out of the way until they i think it's worth looking at the polls as they stand now in the context of where we are. and we're of course, in the middle of a parliamentary term, parliamentary terms of the u. k. can last up to 5 years. we just over 2 years in this one it's, it's very ordinary at this stage and a political cycle for the governing party to be behind in the polls. if we think back to david cameron in 2013, he was 15 points behind the labor party in 2013, 2 years later he won the general election. we think back to margaret thatcher. she was double digits behind the labor party during the westland affair of 1986
11:45 am
a year later she won an enormous parliamentary majority. lost it's true and absolutely undeniable. the conservative party is absolutely tanking in the polls right now. it's not actually that out of line from where we'd expect to see a mid term parliament. indeed, if we look even it's tony blair's ratings in around 2001 during the oil crisis, crisis and foot and mouth. and all of that the conservative party was ahead and then tony blair, of course, went to win on another election. so really we need to look at this in the round in sort of context of the parliamentary term that we're seeing. it will see many new m p 's says she don't have as much time looking over the history of politics. are those that are trying to make the 1st news but can pin it on because it might not be that they are just, you know, ignorant of conservative party history and might be that you got to close the right
11:46 am
on there that you're so you do you have these new and take and he's that have much lena dorothy and conservative party and faith. and they're thinking to themselves, how stable is this the leg or coalition that that got together in 2019, are we out of that period volatility, which really began in 2016. it has 20. 73 is amazing. how majority you then had 2019 a concert policy landslide or an awful lot with empties in those no organ and metal and the guy that same electorate, which turned on a dot and delivered me my lovely job. they could turn on me again. i want and yet you see this, so just wonder attitude good. i want to bring in. i'm just wondering, going forward if, if there was an election tomorrow, whether these people dismayed for the conservative party they gave their vote to for the 1st time in these red war seats were talking about areas of the country,
11:47 am
largely the north of england, the traditionally voted labor that switched allegiance, the conservative party, whether these people would actually go ahead and switch their religions by whether these polls simply show a reactionary response in the midst of a crisis. how trusting should we be of these numbers right now? so need, i'm just going to push on a little bit. i know that you've been reporting on, on some of the scandals that have hit the tory party that the services of a number of years after boys. johnson was off the scene for a few days because a family member had cove. it. he came back and he had an interview that was on january the 18th. and in this interview, he was asked about having a party in downing street the eve of the duke of edinburgh funeral. and he looked extremely contrite. let's take a look. this is in course,
11:48 am
this is 1st time we've seen you since reports emerged in the daily telegraph, not denied by don street about 2 busy parties howled in the garden in the buildings of number 10 the night before prince phillips funeral. when the country was in national morning, was having to apologize to the queen about those parties. the night before she put her husband over 70 years, she laid into rest was not the moment of shame for you. and i deeply and bitterly regret of that that happened. and i can only really and renew my apologies both to, to her majesty and her to the country. ah, for misjudgments that were made and, and for which i take full responsibility. neither being so many at scandal surrounded by st. johnson that the cabinets toriana hayes. why is this one different? is it different?
11:49 am
well, judging by his facial expressions during the interview, even behind the mass, this was a man that seemed brow beaten, almost defeated after days, weeks of continual cool from opposition and peace to come clean on exactly what the prime minister did. no, i didn't know what kind of culture he presided over at downing street. he appeared exhausted, and that's after having eval days away from cameras isolating with a family member. it does raise big questions about how longer, how much longer boys johnson can cute can really last thing that only 24 hours later he was up in parliament is ticklish. all self batting criticism away. left right and centre, reframe in the argument back on his achievements. on how the government is handle the pandemic over the past 700 days on the one that appears contrived. on the other hand, he appears as if he's got all to play for it. he's amanda says treated in many ways,
11:50 am
politics like a game throughout his career. and this is what needs to turn into play well, to the last by the looks of it. i'm going to, i think it's really important to note just how quickly things have changed. the last few days that we were having this conversation last night, i think that everyone here would agree that we were thinking the orange johnson was about to be brought down in a matter of our having this conversation to night. it seems that he's faced at least until next week, and really we're seeing such a quick turns in the fortunes of what is going on. land indeed, in the institute, many conservative empties upon. seeing that pul interview with the prime minister on monday were really quite irritated by his performance and thought to some extent it was the performance of the half down as if it was the. do you think with a new think? do you think that was a performance? i think he would definitely have gained these questions with his advisors. there's
11:51 am
no way that he would have spent so many days inside number 10 before having his 1st cost interview and not have thoughts about those questions. of course, that story of advice is having a party, it has to be said that the product is 40 miles away in his country retreat at the time. but these policies before prince philip, that you could bet a funeral took place. i think it happened thought while he was prime minister, obviously as be point of contention. i, i think you're touching on something really important here. tell him which is we've talked about the conservative party and piece we talked about incentive to post it . and i think it's really important for about the media landscape as well. because bars, johnson in many ways is a creature of the british media. he started out as a journalist. he was employed by the telegraph as a dog columnist, walter of a 1000000 pounds a year. he is somebody who has enjoyed very closely to the british media and in
11:52 am
some ways these 2 institutions have been on each other. so don't look at the progress that left leaning liberal paper look at what's being said in the mail in the times. and in particular, the telegraph because it was the telegraph for still since own former employer, which broke the story about the down the street on the, on the eve of prince phillips funeral. now this is important because they have been prime ministers most reliable back among the british news pay more, there could be a dramatic get in time. and in the an aggressive an off style story for the prime minister. he's going to be looking over his shoulder, asking himself, well, how much i rely on my end is how much can i rely on my ministers? some of them may have their own ambitions. take my jo and also an online review
11:53 am
view of the british media head of the telephone and the telegraphs. political correspondent tony diver is an excellent journalist, got a very good story and run it on their front page that i really think there's more to it that they, they found a good school and like any good journalist who ran that good school by. i don't think that there's any a last can i to tom ask i just asking this because i did promise i would is that they could be part of the conversation as well. so i to was wondering, why are they media leakers bringing this story after almost a year. quick thoughts, tongue quick thought. at nixie, quick in a sentence. tom, you go fast. i think they fundamentally didn't have their hands on it until now. we know that a number of people have left downing street people who used to work it down on the streets of left over the last 12 months. and potentially the source is a bit more loosely and out in the back of months ago. and i think okay,
11:54 am
there were 100 people invited to that down the street party that more people than i'm going to invite to my 3rd year this year. and secondly, one of the parties was held at leave injury for james black, who was director of communications at downing street. what was his next job? it was deck, the editor of the time, one of the biggest newspapers in the country. i was mike bringing this may the point was i knew the media didn't though. yeah. is this frankly risible. i mean, so what, chris, why mr. saying right now is, let's wait for the inquiry. can you remind us what this inquiry even when, when we find out about it findings yeah, well we're hoping that we'll find out the ins and outs of this inquiry within the coming days. although su gray, who's the top civil servant task, when we're doing the inquiry, is clearly getting more more information dumped in box, which may be contributing to the length of time on this inquiry is going on for.
11:55 am
she's a woman who is nicknamed as the sleaze buster of white pool. she has been responsible for the departure of some quite celia m. p. 's in the past and she's past not in a judicial way, but in a fact finding way to explore and investigates wrongdoings in downing street other government departments and look into these parties with greater detail and see also crucially for the public. what kind of role abortion also may have played in all of this? i love this question on youtube because it's what we're all thinking, but we don't want to get ahead of ourselves. but bunstein, you know that he'll this eugene question. i'm going to put it to ash and then also to tom. i do think the country is lazy, love relationship with a conservative. so the question is really, who will they replace maurice johnson with that's assuming that boys chelsea is on his way out as she's done well, there are 2 li contenders with his finance minister. mercy, do not,
11:56 am
and foreign minister list for both of them has been raising their media profound ways to very decent mr. newberry. i ministerial looking photo shoot, you know, having fight johnny relationships with each other in the media. make that case, but you never know what it is that the there's always room for it or is everybody i'm out on top and it thing and politics. he who wills the knife will never wear the brown. that's why i think of things that's not a tina from these would be leadership intent as they don't want to be too close. johnson, they don't want to be in a him. all right, so and this is they have a potential potential challenger. i'm tom, who will follow on for employment. step boys, johnson. well, at the moment that does seem to be this sort of these 2 candidates you are potentially out in front. of course,
11:57 am
richie back personally became chosen for georgia finances of the united kingdom just 2 years ago has been rocketed. let's start to market, rolled out what was called the furlough scheme and the u. k. giving out cash to people say that they could freeze their jobs during the credit of iris pandemic. he was seen as a big spending chocolate during the crisis and has potentially smoothed over a lot of the problems that we could to parents. and we've got pretty high employment and the economy is done all right over the last 2 years. so he's built up a bit of a base there, but he's annoyed a number of conservatives because he's raised taxes as a result of these 2 years. so potentially, he's someone who's more popular and might be the head choice, but maybe the heart choice might be live, trust someone who's much more. libertarian believes in a small government wants to get rid of a number of government departments wants to retell. hm. but you know, you know,
11:58 am
giving us here you think, you think might be that out there in the field. and tom and me, thank you so much for helping us pack the politics. if you go under j about prime minister boys johnson, i'm not here on my laptop of audio dot com voice. johnson has his own page of stories. you can keep up to date with out there dot com. and of course, a way to watching lazarus, the home of jesus christ, his long drawn pilgrims and visitors from around the world. hundreds of years. it's old city, rang to the sounds of shopkeepers and crofts. people. this entry though, sounds of dwindled. a handful of businesses struggling on but hearing that splashes of color shows signs of a fight back resigns obese. a donnie decided to renovate an old warehouse and to work and live in the old city with a mission. me and another person opens the work that can he was talking organically and open my young palestinian is really designers and
