12:03 pm
and all of us saw on earth the 2 issues of our democracy from the outset and yesterday was about the culmination of that henri landing attack for protesters died in the chaos one inside the building a police officer also died from his injuries on thursday amid the aftermath democrats and even some of trump's former allies have called for his immediate removal from office while some normalcy has returned to washington d.c. the city is clearly shaken even trump supporters in the capital were shocked by the violence what happened yesterday is just. i mean. what they did. was definitely. we don't support that rid of that we don't support that that is you know they they. overcame police and they overcame barricades that not a lot order and like not that we are the party of law and order and for some
12:04 pm
members of trump's cabinet wednesday's events also went too far several have since resigned including the transportation secretary and most recently education secretary betsy device. peter that al from our us elections teen is with us here in our studio hi peter we have now seen members of the trump administration stepping down what do you make of this right so we've seen at least a dozen members of the trumpet ministration and in the resignations among them former white house chief of staff and current special envoy to north in ireland mick mulvaney we've seen 1st lady maloney a trump chief of staff and then her resignation the transportation secretary and as was on that report educate education secretary that's a vase in her resignation letter she really lay the blame squarely at the president's feet saying that there's no mistaking the impact that trumps rhetoric has had on the situation she also went on to say you know impressionable children
12:05 pm
are watching all of this and really that they have a moral obligation to model their behavior you know the hope that these children would want to emulate and i think for a lot of people those words coming this late do bring a little hollow if you know for the past 4 years we've seen trump and his administration frankly repeatedly flout a lot of the norms that were used to even flout the constitution at certain times you know divorce state in office when the trumpet ministration locked up migrant children in cages when donald trump refused to distance self from right wing extremist or when he's been caught lying wealth or terry and so you don't many see this kind of a last ditch attempt by these people to try to you know been in a sinking ship in say faces they're about to go out and look for new jobs and at the same time we see that pressure is mounting in washington right now to remove president from office how realistic is that well as you said that we're seeing
12:06 pm
actually on both sides of the aisle which is quite remarkable a growing number of people say that you know trump is simply too dangerous at this point to leave in office for even another minute so we're seeing on the one hand you know 2 scenarios being floated one is impeachment. there are reports that some house democrats plan to introduce articles of impeachment on monday but that would leave them just a week to get everything through the house in the senate that would be. unprecedented feat and would require a level of republican backing that i don't think is there the other scenario is invoking the 25th of many and which would be unfit for office also reports that some of his cabinet members are discussing that but that would require the backing of the vice president half of capitol members so that's also very unlikely to go anywhere there is most support for the latter option the 25th amendment because essentially that what amounts to repudiation by the republican party of trump but i
12:07 pm
think a lot of republicans too afraid of blowback from from space and it will leave the party potentially even more divided than it already is and just very quickly peter we heard president trump say in that message our incredible journey is only just beginning what do you think that means it means that we have not seen the last of trump may leave office but is he will still very much be a presence in a force for republicans to reckon with you know keep in mind 74000000 people voted for him some 70 percent of republicans say they actually believe his claims and part of that is also that you know we're seeing a growing number of the conservative electorate that simply no longer within the reach of the traditional republican party they have you know feed off a completely different media ecosystem in diet and their reality is much closer to the one that trump has been projecting than frankly what a lot of other an average americans are living in right now very interesting from
12:08 pm
our u.s. elections team thank you so much. let's take a look now at some other stories from around the world boeing will pay $2.00 and a half $1000000000.00 to settle a u.s. justice department probe into conspiracy charges related to 2 crashes of at 737 max plane the accidents in indonesia and ethiopia killed $346.00 people and led to the aircraft being grounded the settlement includes compensation to airlines and money for victims' families and a fine. they use climate monitoring service says 2020 was europe's hottest year on record it also tied 2016 for the hottest year globally the arctic and northern siberia warm more quickly than the planet on a whole scientists ever knew their calls for countries to slash emissions to avoid catastrophic climate change. deaths from the corona virus have reached a new one day high here in germany just spite an ongoing nationwide lockdown data
12:09 pm
from the country's public health agency show 1188 code related deaths in the past 24 hours and almost $32000.00 new coping $1000.00 cases reported that's a little less than the previous peak in mid december but health officials warn actual numbers could be higher. meanwhile the european commission has reached a deal with drug makers pfizer and biotech to double its order of the coated vaccine that secures the e.u. nearly half of the 2 firms global output of the jabot this year here is commission president was left on the line explained what the deal means for the block with the new agreement we could purchase a total of up to an additional $300000000.00 doses of the biotech pfizer vaccine in other words this will allow us to double the amount of those as of biotech pfizer. let's go right to brussels to teri schultz is standing by for us there welcome terry what does this deal actually include. yes sue me as
12:10 pm
european commission vulgarly and just said this will double the number of pfizer biotech vaccines that the european commission has purchased and this is not a small issue because the commission is under fire for having purchased at the beginning to few and too slowly the number of doses that the population of almost half a 1000000000 needs so every additional purchase that they're allowed to make of course the commission will hope that this lessens the criticism of them and till this week this biotech pfizer vaccine was the only one approved in the european union of course earlier this week madonna was also approved adding 160000000 doses and as we listen to these numbers it seems awfully high sumi but we have to remember that since every person needs 2 doses you're only going to be able to vaccinate half the number of people that you hear the purchase of the vaccine so when she says that we're going to have 600000000 of the biotech pfizer beseen that's going to be of
12:11 pm
course just 300000000 people right that's important to keep in mind so what do you think this agreement will mean for the e.u. wide rollout. of course it's encouraging to know that there will be more vaccinations available but the problem really hasn't been buying them the problem is producing them and the facilities are you know in a dead neck run producing the of the drug as fast as possible but there have been delays both in produce production and in transport especially with this biotech pfizer vaccine because it needs these ultra cold conditions that not all countries were able to to create at the beginning so some of the shipments had to be delayed some of the shipments actually had to be thrown out because they weren't stored properly the madeira the vaccine can be stored in normal freezer temperature so that also will help but there simply isn't enough capacity to produce the high numbers of vaccines that the public is demanding now also this week we heard that a new facility to be built there in marburg germany is going to be up and running
12:12 pm
for the biotech pfizer vaccine so that's going to be very encouraging but as underway and said this morning we're only talking about the 2nd quarter of this year for for the new pfizer biotech jobs to come into production and only by the end of this year will the full shipment be able to be fulfilled so people need to keep in mind that the rollout is not immediate you can buy them but it doesn't mean you're going to have them in your arm anytime soon and you have the e.u. actually courtenay to this mammoth task in the member states doing the rollout so how is that going. that's right and i think sometimes it's appropriate to defend the european commission because they buy them they purchased them but it's up to member states to deliver them and implement a vaccination program and governments are each taking their own their own path we've of course seen germany and france criticized for having a slow rollout but now this week there's some additional criticism sumi and that is that it's been learned that well germany was president of the european council the
12:13 pm
2nd half of last year and test was shepherding all $27.00 governments into making their purchases together to have extra leverage to meet to make these big procurements it also on the side negotiate its own deal with vaccine makers and that's something that a lot of countries are are not happy about germany of course the wealthiest e.u. countries a very powerful country and at the time the european council president so this is something that the european the european commission and the german government are being asked about how was it really ethical for germany to purchase additional doses on the side of underlying says that it did not break the european commission agreement that countries are allowed to purchase additional doses and that germany's extra vaccines will come only after the commission shipment is fulfilled . reporting from brussels good to talk to you.
12:14 pm
let's take a look now at some other developments in the pandemic the u.s. has reported more than 4000 new coping 1000 cases in the past 24 hours that is a global record nearly 3 times greater than number 2 brazil china has sealed off 2 cities south of beijing to stem the country's biggest outbreak in 6 months people are banned from leaving shijiazhuang and shing thai which combined populations of nearly 20000000 transport links have also been cut there and iran's supreme leader has banned vaccines from the u.s. and britain in a televised speech many said anti covert 1000 shots developed in either country are forbidden the coronavirus pandemic is also hitting some african nations hard especially south africa where case numbers have been surging since the start of this year it is the worst affected of all the african countries with more than 1000000 cases already reported did every increase has more.
12:15 pm
this isn't a waiting room it's the treatment room for kobe to patients at the hospital in khayelitsha one patient calls out to us to tell us she'd been sitting and waiting for 3 days waiting for beds to become free next door. to record the signature so we see them good on the street just. to. dr susan you can call it has been working here for 9 years and this pandemic is pushing him to his limits the 3rd of his colleagues have already had the virus how do you feel to be offered a little something you feel for this is going to be enough for st it's something we don't do enough oxygen we need to you think hard and you know it's one point when did you feel you did something you drew. do you proved it looks just as you should we just stuff but that's just something to do just that it's. on average one person
12:16 pm
with coverts dies in the hospital every day there's a small room next door with somewhat better beds for acute patients waiting for an intensive care bed at another hospital. the local health minister at mit's that not everyone can get an i.c.u. bed most are already full if that doesn't 5 lives but then i see. that instead of nobody did it right now i see it and it is what it is what it calls on by so this is actually the waiting all the waiting area off the hospitals where people would normally wait for their treatment but you can see it people will come here with non-college related issues emergencies are for now being treated here because they need the space on the other side of the building the potential covers cases. south africa meanwhile has reintroduced tougher lockdown measures there's a strict
12:17 pm
a mosque requirement alcohol sales are bans and beaches have been closed but police are overwhelmed with enforcing the rules. only patients over the age of 45 find now being tested at the state clinics the demand is overwhelming. here in viral load just both gun crisis laboratory every 2nd test is positive the peak of the 2nd wave is expected in south africa in mid january but even after that experts anticipate further waves. i fear that neither the current enormous surge that we are experiencing no nor the arrival of a vaccine some time into halfway through 2021 for a small proportion of the population will be able to make a big difference the government announced it is already in talks with the manufacturers but there are no details yet. that can tell you each
12:18 pm
a however there is hope initial studies show that during the 1st wave up to 40 percent of residents will already infected and possibly even social distancing remains impossible for many here. dr mckown colon and his team they are forced to bracing for a tough few weeks ahead of them. the european union says it will help fund accommodations for thousands of migrants currently living without shelter and bosnia-herzegovina e.u. foreign affairs chief joseph porter has said $3500000.00 euros will be granted to alleviate what he calls completely unacceptable conditions now boston is not and e.u. member but as you can see here it borders croatia which is part of the union human rights groups say migrants have frequently reported rough encounters with croatian police including beatings and being forcefully sent back into bosnia that is a charge that croatian authorities deny now at the moment nearly $9000.00 migrants
12:19 pm
are estimated to be in bosnia many of them are from afghanistan pakistan or syria and the un's migration agency says more than a 3rd of those migrants right now are now living without shelter many were left homeless when a camp in lipa was evacuated on december 23rd after bosnian authorities failed to prepare the camp for winter that mt camp was later set on fire the bosnian army is set up new tents but n.g.o.s say more permanent shelter is sorely need it in a stylus reports. asked for comments angry and he's not the only one of feels that way going on a year in tempe is a yes they are guys that same problem they are suffering a lot of us mattel says he was forced to leave his home in pakistani controlled kashmir 2 years ago due to conflict in the region now he's one of several 1000 migrants and refugees here in bosnia-herzegovina right at the doorstep of the european union most of them have only one goal answering the e.u.
12:20 pm
ashmit is tried several times to reach crazy but says he was always violently pushed back by border guards we had a human being we want to live we have a family they all guys got to not give me the illinois terrorist we don't have a gun we had a very police asked for us medicinal stuck here in camp which made headlines just before christmas when it was 1st cleared and then burned down these damaged bank beds are or minder what happens since then people here have mostly had to fend for themselves some are collecting rain water to drink. we're not allowed to ensure at this camp police told us they're just following new instructions from the government but they could not explain to us why journalists are not being permitted inside boston authorities have faced harsh criticism because of the appalling conditions the mayor of the nearby town of beotch suited fashion it's says the
12:21 pm
national government and the e.u. share the blame piano on his parents so much money in crisis but the hatch has not received any any euro we have been dealing the law on the door money even though our resources european union on. should treat my gun case is a european problem as a global problem the e.u. says it is helping for example by sending a former refuse. shelter in b. hutch but after repeated protests it was closed down in september and replaced by complete some residents of are still gathering here every day because they fear that migrants could move back in. they said to us that we are lost we are not to assist 3 years we suffering and helping that people they don't want to stay in bosnia they just want to go to the border in europe and da europe
12:22 pm
open the border. this is what many in kambli thought are hoping for a swell but for know they have to cope with the little they have. for more on the story and we can speak now to unify johansson he's the e.u. commissioner for home affairs in brussels commissioner johansson thank you very much for joining us we heard a woman there say in that report that the migrants do not want to stay in bosnia-herzegovina she said dear europe open the border and take them will you take them while everybody has a right to apply for asylum and those that have reasons to get asylum will get asylum and are welcome and you have been union but those that are not eligible for asylum they cannot come and they have to return to their country of origin that's an important part of our migration policy but why is that not happening if we look
12:23 pm
at the conditions there they can't they're essentially stuck they'd like to applied for asylum and get to the european union. well i think would be seeing right now in the area off the closing of the camp just before christmas we are having a humanitarian emergency situation and this one now we need to solve them that's why i spent actually pato my christmas holiday with a lot of phone calls to their forty's and the politicians on both national and regional level in boston has the governor and also together with the high representative. so now we have today a temporary solution where the red cross reopens the leave camp with winterized tents that could help for the emergency situation right now but commissioner johansson i want to come back to you and not the humanitarian situation which we understand is dire but what the actual avenue is for people
12:24 pm
there to apply for asylum and come to europe how can that be addressed where people are not not everybody can come to you to pee in union those that are eligible for asylum can come to the opinion are welcomed to calm but not everybody that wants to come to you to be in union can come and constant in european union and boston has to go into has to manage their migration situation as well you say that they have to manage their migration situation we heard from the mayor of the house in that report saying he hasn't seen any euros from the european union how can that be. well we have spent a lot of money i think it's almost 85000000 euros to help us you know house to go managed migration and we will continue support them doing this but unfortunately we can also see that it that that there is a dysfunctioning governance and in this country that means that some areas
12:25 pm
of the country some candles that are having taken much morrison responsibilities for migrants than other areas for example and this is something that boston has to govern and need to address in my view and i think also that i mean the european union we have been investing in the be wrecked camp that is winterized and it's ready to open with the place and beds for 1500 migrants and just down the road from the leave camp and i think that will be a good solution to reopen the b. rock and to give people shelter there for for the winter and commissioner johansson you told me of in september that you were confident that your pact on migration that's currently in talks right now that this would address some of the issues that we're seeing when it comes to these camps on the e.u. borders still this pact does not solve the problem that there are countries in the european union that are not willing to take in migrants so how are you going to
12:26 pm
solve this issue. well 1st on the pact that i have presented it's now being negotiated by member states and also by the european parliament and that should say in a constructive way and the situation that we are facing right now and that's also the case with the migrants and boston has to go over and i should guess that is a majority of those of a life to ended european union are not refute g.'s they are not eligible for international protection and it's important that we make the distinction between is that those that are eligible for international protection they can i well come and they could stay and others could also come on legal possible ways to work in u.p. in union to study had to be part of society but you know reivers that are not eligible to stay they have to return and that's also an important part of my policy
12:27 pm
that we should have the pro says is already active border is to have a quicker and more efficient return system for those not eligible to stay ok we'll have to leave it there is a johansson the e.u. commissioner for home affairs in brussels thank you very much for joining us. and thank you for watching g.w. .
12:28 pm
to the point showing a clear position on the international perspective some of. for the 1st time in its history a member nation as much as the european union the question who so can the united kingdom really forge an independent future and washington's is all going to have only to meet you and so find out and so the point. to point blame it on some of the toddlerhood. good shape it's
12:29 pm
a part of the body we tend to time to estimate even though it's so important for the un system up more than a credit for coaxing too nice of a killer to change because i suppose. what affects our intestinal flora. and how to be keep it healthy. and good shape. in 60 t.w. . i subscribe to d.w. books you meet your favorite writer write. to what i write is to share where to find beautiful. did over your books on you tube. how does a virus spread. why do we panic and when we'll all this. time for just 3 of the topics from cover and
12:30 pm
a weekly radio show is called spectrum if you would like any information on the crown of virus or any other science topic you should really check out our podcast you can get it wherever you get your podcast you can also find us at d.f.w. dot com slash science. the united kingdom has made history by becoming the 1st and only country to fully leave the yugo european union the 2 sides did manage to come up with a last minute trade agreement to prevent a possibly harmful no deal departure now though they must learn to live together geographically but politically independent prime minister boris johnson has promised a golden age for the british people so on to the point we don't see breaks it down that you can't really go it alone.
12:31 pm
thanks so much for joining us here on the show where my guests are professor tanya old birds from burlington free university who argues that london is low. left with no influence over the new regulations over size of financial contributions instead of taking back control it's taxation without representation also with this is john worth of british blogger based here in germany who argues that as the u.k. e.u. trade deal begins to be understood there are going to be a lot of unhappy people on both sides of the channel and a very warm welcome to news it's all not berlin bureau chief of the british economist who says the deal reflects the british desire to reduce market access and trade links in exchange for a greater degree of sovereignty and limited respect he says it can be considered
12:32 pm
a success. thank you all 3 for being here today interesting statements that tanya tanya. professor from the year for university here in berlin. history has been made britain has gone house boris johnson delivered. i would say no boris johnson has not delivered because he promised that britain would take back control and i don't see that britain has actually taken back control it is still subject in directly at least to your regulations because i mean they agree that there can be divergence but only as long as fair competition is guaranteed and this is decided in the end by the e.u. u.k. partnership council so it's not decided by the british government secondly britain will continue to pay into the us budget so might british money taxpayers' money still will go to brussels because less than before yes true but still it does and britain has no control over how how high that these contributions will be so i
12:33 pm
think i mean we can talk about what sovereignty means but if it means independent decision making i think britain will be very much constrained about by what the e.u. will decide in the future so what do you make of all. i half agree. i mean well i think the place to start perhaps because partly because it animated so many of the people who backed brits in the 1st place is actually on immigration one of the elements that the government always boasted that it was going to take back control of britain's borders now it is true that there will of course they will no longer be free movement of the e.u. citizens to britain and vice versa it's not entirely clear what immigration regime is for britain is going to replace what we had in the past and from an economic point of view you might consider the initials itself in the foot but to put it bluntly when you're a member of the european union you do not have control of your borders in the sense you are obliged under most circumstances. borders opened to sit in from the rest of
12:34 pm
the club britain no longer has to do that on the regulator side tell us discussing that i mean the proof of the pudding is going to be in the eating have to see how all of these mechanisms these councils these joint associations work in practice because everybody to a certain extent is groping in the dark here these things have been set up from scratch there isn't in most cases there isn't really a model for them what i'm going to be curious to watch is not so much the extent to which britain now 6 to diversion whatever particular rules it has concerns about in the single market in most cases i don't think they have been want diverged from them and what it seeks to do in the future things like emerging technologies. where britain might. some members of this or a future british government might decide that it would be in the national interest not necessarily to follow european regulations and to go it alone surely be nodding vigorously i agree with that
12:35 pm
a pragmatic level but for me the big question is how pragmatic is the british government in approaching what comes next for me this is essentially an ideological . or even a political win potentially for boris johnson practical headaches which are going to come are going to make this thing turn quite sour. quite quickly for a lot of british people whether that's ultimately going to lead toward terms how's it going to turn so what is it's going to have a practical impact for. everyone's lives but for millions of citizens lives at a very practical every day level prices will increase we know that there are already difficulties and shortages in northern ireland with the supply of food to northern irish supermarkets we've seen german postage companies refusing to send packages to the u.k. at the moment due to increasing bureaucracy there's a bit of coronavirus in on that one as well when british try to go on holiday and there they face additional complications or want to go and visit a holiday home those kinds of issues pretty small companies that simply say we
12:36 pm
can't actually export to the european union any longer because the bureaucracy of so doing is that much more complicated so those are the very series of complicated practical difficulties that britain and the only european union side if you're exporting from the e.u. to the u.k. as well are not sold we don't know the answers to those sorts of practical problems so far but politically speaking very strong things you can say the superficial level at least it looks like he's delivered. boris johnson for his own party. the. deal that we've just been talking about has opened a new chapter in britain britain should history allowing the british people to take control of their own law lords and their national defense dense destiny let's take a brief look at some of the changes that will click in over the coming weeks and months. vacationing in spain will become even more complicated for brits who crave the sun if they want to stay there longer than 90 days they'll need
12:37 pm
a visa. british citizens have lost the right to freedom of movement in europe. moreover e.u. citizens who live in britain and want to work there will now have to prove their value to the state by a point based immigration system. this is bad news for british farmers who rely on e.u. workers during harvest seasons. massive traffic jams on the nation's borders will become routine because all goods that come in and go out of the country will be checked for customs documents. it's also a blow to fishers in northern france. they can no longer fish in british waters from which they've gotten 80 percent of their fish until now. a lot will change for british bankers and shareholders as well when where and how much they can work will be decided in brussels. it's
12:38 pm
a treat to service. your you've got a point do you really want to make out with it. 2 things 1st i agree that migration is really a point where brick you can take back control though you fail both with regard to time and north an island you know if the border between the e.u. and britain is not at the british border it's actually within britain and so i mean that ok granted the point with migration what about the services you know i mean this is a trait deal and for the e.u. this is important but for britain the financial service sector is much more important and nothing was a great he is so it will depend a lot of what's going to happen in the future with regard to a deal a potential deal between the e.u. and the u.k. that needs to be struck and probably will take quite a while tom reality will slowly sink in. i mean i think in terms of the
12:39 pm
economic impact of the country clearly what we have done to put it bluntly is we have erected barriers to trade that didn't exist previously and that means that britain will be poorer than it otherwise would have been it's a pretty sort of straightforward trade off was going to be interesting is to see to what extent the deal that was just agreed can provide some sort of basis for building up more expensive things in the future so you're just talking about financial services is absolutely crucial essential part of the british economy which should basically don't feature in the deal at all. i have no idea how that will play out but what does seem clear is that if britain wants more access into the single market for its very substantial financial services industry then it will need to make concessions and that may look something like having ironically a more relaxed rule of migration of workers now that's clearly not something is going to happen anytime soon but over the long term you know i think everything is up for grabs and we always have to remember what happened in the years leading up
12:40 pm
to britain's original exception into what was then the european community in the early seventy's it was britain looking at its neighbors looking at france looking at west germany and thinking they shouldn't be growing richer than us what's going on there and you've just said that the u.k. is going to become poorer wasn't part of the principal the promise wasn't all about abstract things like sovereignty and freedom it was a concrete promise to people who are going to have better lives in the foreseeable future poorer than it would otherwise be poorer than it is now which i think is an important distinction to make i mean we all know that the campaign and the brics it is. spun the british electorate a few tall tales in the course of the campaign and beforehand but i mean i don't think there's any simpler way to put it than that if you put up barriers to trade especially with what if by fire largest trading partner then you are going to. be poorer than you otherwise would have been and sort of questions about the
12:41 pm
contribution to the e.u. budget is neither here nor there yes britain was a net control contributor no longer be paying sums of that magnitude into the budget but but it will be exporting less it's there will be fewer customers for its goods and services therefore there will be less tax revenue they'll be less going to the treasury so there's you know that's a pretty straightforward decision that was made so vincy of whatever sort regulator e board is whatever legal whatever else in exchange for less access to the markets of your biggest trading partner in the meanwhile to the new european leaders i've written down were very set about the trade deal historically important important milestone major step forward so what impact is this deal going to have on the european union. bracks it is often treated as an instance of disintegration it depends how you define disintegration yes we do you for the 1st time lost a member but at the same time this isn't in a way and somewhat paradoxically actually govern ised integration among the
12:42 pm
remaining 27 members in many respects 1st i think. the deal of the multi multi man to enter financial fragment plus the new generation. the economic recovery program that was decided i don't think would have been possible with britain sitting still on the table secondly the e.u. has been the 27 member that have been incredibly united in deposition when negotiating with the u.k. which was not obvious at the very beginning particularly germany with its strong economic interest and britain was sort of bullying seemed to be building king maggot was at the very beginning was sort of calling for a pragmatic deal and the polish because of their interest and you know migrant workers sending them to britain i mean it could have well happened that the european union to $27.00 would have unraveled and then it would have been a different deal so already in these 2 respects i think we see more rather than less you're. so it is
12:43 pm
a historic deal in many respects but i think it is in the end the impact for the you will be positive rather than negative ok we mentioned the brig's it is they argue that the u.k. has got itself a free trade deal with no terrorists no quotas for the same time there's a vision of what's being called a nimble britain's setting its own trade or gender and forging trade agreements around the world let's listen to what boris johnson has been saying about all of that and then moves speak to john 1st of all. what this deal gives us is i would say pretty much the best of both worlds because you have a gigantic free trade agreement but you also have the flexibility that people wanted in that we all care about to do things differently and better. joan you were swearing and cursing and you don't want to go to why you were you swearing and cursing this notion that britain gets the best of both worlds is
