spk_0:
21:09

spk_0:
22:24
Controversial corner.
spk_1:
22:27

spk_0:
22:37
Could just be a time for people to share their honest opinions. Yes,
spk_1:
22:41
the controversial element is the opinions. I guess so. This week's question he's is Boris Johnson.

spk_1:
22:56

spk_0:
23:05
I was just going to say flat out here to pull the shade.
spk_1:
23:09
But, um, most of it I'm not gonna see overwhelmingly positive. But most of it was actually quite positive.
spk_0:
23:16
Positive? Neutral to positive?
spk_1:
23:18
Yes, but there is a general consensus which I think you'll probably get. So create G We G said he's better than the last two. But have we had a good prime minister in the last five decades?
spk_0:
23:31
I like how he's put Prime Minister is one word. He's missed out the A in prime

spk_1:
23:52
get so tell, have said better than all of the other contenders. That's she won.
spk_0:
23:58
Rachel identified your spelling mistake. I'm more concerned over the fact that Prime Minister is one word on, and she went on to say, I think it's a bit of a stuck up to W A. T, but considerably better than any of the alternative.
spk_1:
24:13
So yep, angry, Um, said Nope. Carbon is no better, But stopping Brexit is the priority. Um, so I think Oh, I mean, I've bean a bit of ah, fun off leave. I'm not going to say have fun, but I've always kind of been a little more supportive just because it's historical in this part of the country, it's always gonna be alevis kind of nation, like state. Whatever you wanna call it, um, on dhe,
spk_0:
24:46
because way are the ones I've always been the hard workers where where the ones that have I don't want to take away from. Obviously, people do hard work down south, but where the ones that do or have bean known historically to dio a lot of the dirty works or main in the main and industry was big with North pits and things. I am steel work and was was quite big up in the North. A lot of the hard, dirty jobs were appear and and that's what labor were full labor before the working class people who did the hit hard, dirty jobs and that that's where it's being sort of bred into us.
spk_1:
25:29
Yeah, well, that's the thing. I mean, Mark was always seen and north and South divide. And it's just because that well, you know, it always is.

Westlund and being the the capital like it's obviously everything's going to stem out of London and tourist
spk_0:
25:57
hot spots. All
spk_1:
25:58
but Margaret Thatcher. Probably
spk_0:
26:01
she really, really stuck in the knife and created the divide, even
spk_1:
26:06
Yeah, she dramatic there was no going back once more with that, you're in this different opinions over like in different parts of the country, on DDE. In fairness, I don't think that what she did was I was you know, closing the magnificently industry is unforgivable boat. I don't think her whole reasoning behind it was
spk_0:
26:29
no. And she did. She did do a lot of good things. So, like, bite left elected by and that that was one of her ideas on DDE. A lot of people up in the North would never have been able to afford to actually on their property if it wasn't for that scheme. So there was stuff that she did that really damaged the North. But in in another way, she also helped people actually be ableto on their properties. And there was a couple of other bits and pieces as well. My mom and dad would never have been able to buy their house. It wasn't even that much. It was only like 60 grand when they're trying to buy it. Bull. That's just the difference between also Pia and them down there.
spk_1:
27:16
Yeah, but not that I want to instill my views on anybody because ultimately, my views aren't really that important in the grand scheme of things. You
spk_0:
27:25
know,
spk_1:
27:25
when it comes to politics. And I wouldn't ever tell anybody that they're wrong for Borden, for whoever they want a vote for, but
spk_0:
27:32
all right,
spk_1:
27:33
I definitely no longer Mr Partner of Lever on DDE. I don't know where I'm going to go or if I'm even gonna vote a toll because it's it's realistically not going to make a huge difference in this part of the country. Well,
spk_0:
27:47
that I don't know what to be fair, because the last time they slipped off and that's when people like you keep on dhe The began p nearly got in, so I definitely think it's worthwhile. Born who I'm going to vote for, I'm not sure of at the stage bought. Um, I think it would be wise to still vote for somebody, even if it is just a kn independent party.
spk_1:
28:11
Oh, yeah, I mean, nothing. I'm gonna vote just because it's nice to have ah vault in the sea. But, um, whether or not liver will will ever be not in control over here is
spk_0:
28:24
yes story, I think, even though I'm sorry to interrupt, I think even if they got the seat, if they see that people's vault to change in, then that will give them a kick. Because is it Bridget Phillips? That's in Sunderland something that she she knows Every time she goes to the polling station, she always knows she's gonna win. She stands there and she looks nervous and pretends. But she knows everyone. Everyone who actually cares about politics in the North always vote labour always, always have done always will, apart from when they got the chip on the shoulder about, um, like foreign workers coming in. And then people started voting for you. Keep on being paying, and that's how they nearly got in. Um, but I think if we take a stand on, we've all for another party. Yeah, they may still get in, but they'll see that the water declining for them and they'll have to do something because I can't allow it to to change.
spk_1:
29:30
I think it's no, it's not a case of just liver, and that's no case if I don't like leaving because I don't like Jeremy Corbyn like and don't like Jeremy Corbyn. But I also think that if you get into power with his policies and implements half and stuff he wants to implement, it's gonna be we're going to become such a weak country who already seen as a bit of a weak country now anyway. Yeah, um, and he wants to take away. I mean, I know this is probably not the most important thing that some people, but it's important to me. You want to take where the nuclear deterrent that we've got and he wants to basically make us all sit by a campfire and sing come by our on dhe. It's just not gonna happen as soon as we have seen as we have that nuclear deterrent taken away from us. Yeah, then we our armies and stuff. There's there's not much investment in nose like the defense budget is less unless it's just
spk_0:
30:34
but also raise your guy. But also it's not like, yes, he might want that. And in a world where it's full of rainbows and butterflies, you may be able to get that way. But he's also got a then get the votes to back that, and you've got to think, Is he going to get the votes for that? Take a look about the other people who were they and what they have spoken about, what they believe in. I don't think that you will get the vault in Parliament to then bring that about, Um, so then you've got to think about other policies that are more likely to get actual vaults and basically out weigh the options of hose in the leadership seat and what they're saying they're going to do and then be realistic and say, Are they going to get the votes to actually do anything?
spk_1:
31:23
I think it's It's one of them things. We He probably isn't going to get the votes to do that, because people are probably gonna feel the same as I do. But there was a time where we were, I mean, in terms of sort of being a rich country. We were, you know, in terms of being, you know, like all about power. The power index and on the Power Index was still quite high up the list. But we're still a really good company, a company country on dhe. We still have a lot of values, and we were you know, we're one of the biggest importers and exporters and all that stuff, but we used to be far superior than we are now, and I think what kind of with this whole Brexit thing, um, I think people just look down upon us now, and I think it's a real shame. Yeah, I'm no expert. These are just my opinions. Obviously, you don't have to agree. You can completely disagree. If you'd like. I won't hold anything against you. Um, but haven't said that the Conservative Party has helped me more than the Labour Party has in the time that they've bean in government. I think they've been in government now, about 10 year. Or if, uh, I think maybe you mean there while anyway and then she wasn't nine year
spk_0:
32:50
because it was the coalition boat. They were in charge. Yeah, and then, Yeah,
spk_1:
32:56
but personally, I've seen more money in my pocket from a conservative government than 1/2 a 1,000,000 big government, but at the same time almost vulnerable, being hit in the pocket. So
spk_0:
33:06
yeah, like people just do Just think off our labors for the north, the parents of all aboard labor. So I'm just gonna vote me about. And that has bean what I've done in the past. But I also and it is always good to actually read what their policies are and what they're planning on doing and getting yourself educated because any any government could do something or want to do something that that may not benefit useful if you're apparent, or if you are of a certain age of your elderly, like they might say, we're gonna take off so much or we're going to reduce the pension or we're gonna tax this and you know, you've got to think about what the policies are and what's actually going to suit you, because each party have their own agenda and their own thing that they're looking to change. So just because labor are that the party that I seemed always come across as being for the working class, that doesn't always mean that their policies are going to suit you as a person.
spk_1:
34:17
Yeah, No. One. That is true. And that's that's the That's part of being a democracy, isn't it? You who have their own opinion and you know, they they're entitled to that. And we're a country where we do have a C, and we don't just have to go with with one side of the story or one opinion or one person. That's that's what's good about that. But, um
spk_0:
34:41
Brexit, making a bit of a mockery of that. The minute though.
spk_1:
34:43
Yes, but them I didn't understand Brexit Well, like I understand, Brexit, but I didn't really understand what the implications of leaving the United European Union.
spk_0:
34:58
I don't think it was very well documented. A duck documented. I don't think it was very well known exactly themselves. All If they did know, they didn't advertise it in and let people know themselves. I think a lot of people who voted to be out I didn't know the full ramifications of what was gonna happen and and vice versa. Like I wanted to stay in because I didn't want things to change because it's always better to go with what you know, what you don't. And because there wasn't a lot of information about what would happen if we did leave apart from what? What sounded like false promises, which turned out to be false promises and I didn't want I didn't want it to change
spk_1:
35:43
me. They will, um the CM aborted two remaining on dhe. A large reason for that is because I didn't understand what would happen if I ever voted out. But I'm not one of these people who were like are You know what? You know what they should be? Any referendum number, blah, blah, blah with We've had the vote. We, the people have decided, whether ill informed or not, that is the result. And in my opinion, that should be carried out. Um, but what I don't agree with is is this whole nor Brexit that no deal Brexit like
spk_0:
36:16
No, I
spk_1:
36:16
don't want because that I would.
spk_0:
36:19
That's our main source of trade, and
spk_1:
36:23
I think we need it. We don't need to take a deal, but I don't agree with this whole new referendum thing. It just completely goes again.
spk_0:
36:30
Makes a mockery. Couldn't
spk_1:
36:32
said so a don't like it. But I've accepted it and actually thinking about it once. All of the sort of paint has dried sort his beak ones we've left. We probably will become really successful on our own, and it's just gonna take time to get there, but yeah, I don't think I've accepted. That's gonna happen. Yeah, and yeah, I'm not I'm not mourning about attack. I think people should stop mourning about that. They, you know,
spk_0:
37:01
it was we were afforded. Yeah, exactly. It was close. And it was. It was horrible to see, but that's what's being decided on. And that's what needs to happen. I was. When you draw a line under it and move forward, I agree with you about I don't think we should leave with nor deal. I think that would be more detrimental than good. And I'm nothing. That's where it's That's why it's so up in the air, because Bordeaux is C and I'm gonna leave no matter what oft um on. And that's not the right thing. We need something in place with them so that we can move forward with them because, yes, we don't want to be part of the you fair enough book. We are still they way are still in trading with them. And if we lose that for both sides, it will be detrimental.
spk_1:
37:55
Oh, yeah, well, that's the thing. I mean, the you definitely don't want us to leave, and the probably warn serious publicly, but they're going to lose out on so much income, and they're going to lose out on so much projects as well. Like, um, we we sell we weak like apples and stuff. Apples are a big trade for Ross in this country, and we, our apples go all over the world on be pretty if you were the U is a big sort of importer of our apples on, not just apples. Like the real stuff that we are known for, like our cars as well. Like our British branded stuff. British brands a huge across the world, and they're quite big in Europe as well. So then then won't necessarily lose all of that. But make
spk_0:
38:44
it more difficult if we don't have an open trade deal. Yeah, and it'll be hard with even just island. Yeah, like their public off. Not northern Northern island, obviously is still attached to us in an in effect, bought Northern Island a part of Europe there separate. They wanted to be a separate entity. And that will make everything so much more difficult if we don't. Yeah, come up with something.
spk_1:
39:10
Well, this is it. I mean, I don't pretend to be an expert, and clearly I'm not that I'm not a politician, but it is my democratic right to have an opinion, and this is my opinion. But, you know, it is something that is out of my control. ultimately, Andi, I think regardless of what happens, our country's gonna be fine. I think it might
spk_0:
39:30
just take some time.
spk_1:
39:31
I think we'll be peaks and troughs, and year didn't take some time to get back up there. But once we are up there, I think that's when we'll start becoming, you know, kind of a mean player on the world stage again. And we already kind of are, but was seen as a CZ week, especially compared to, you know, America and China. And, um
spk_0:
39:51
because we're a small country and in the words of the mother, just because we're small couldn't really and still kick ass Remember the two World Wars wear out our page, Kano
spk_1:
40:03
and we were innovative. And we, you know, these days if that would we would
spk_0:
40:10
I know it
spk_1:
40:11
just wouldn't happen. Like I think any war, any war that starts now would be over very quickly because people would just use nuclear arms and it would be,
spk_0:
40:20
you know, But I understand
spk_1:
40:22
that will be it. And nobody wants that. And there's all this scare monger in the news about all brochure is, you know, one on the verge of starting a war and you know we're around this and America sanctioning this and sanction that and it's all scaremongering. Nobody wants a war.
spk_0:
40:38
Well, you've got to think about things like if they use nuclear arms like Hiroshima and Chernobyl and other nuclear disasters like nobody wants that for either side. I don't I don't think it would actually happen. I think you're right. I don't think anybody wants a war. I think it's just the last result anyway. We're getting too Dedieu Deep Thio
spk_1:
41:00
Gonna rename is to a game of two bricks. It's or a game of tea. Brexit halves Or just
spk_0:
41:06
bring Z's and out sees apologies
spk_1:
41:11
for the long runt about politics. I'm sure you hate us now, Bush. That's fine
spk_0:
41:17
with strong
spk_1:
41:18
Well, the ridiculous. A random complaint that was, that is, that is a real complaint that the funding retail related complaint It's actually for me. It's quite serious, but a customer phone to complain. Following the delivery of a curtain pole on finding No. One home, the driver decided it would be possible to still deliver the Paul through the letter box. When the customer returned, they found the dog pinned to the wall.
spk_0:
41:44
Ah, Poor little puppy. Ah, well, you need a D the cart.
spk_1:
41:51
Like how you like me?
spk_0:
41:53
Well, because of the people won't know that that's called. So I am. He started becoming obsessed with the post, so you'll always run to the door when the post is being delivered. And if it's still hanging half in half out of the letterbox, you like, scratch it out so that it's just on the floor, and then you'll sniff it for a little bit, and then you'll walk away. Well, this morning I got up. I got to the London at the top of the stairs on dhe. We've got sort of stairs, and then it goes on a corner and then stairs going down and on the corner step there was a parcel on the flow on that. Did
spk_1:
42:28
you present your possible?
spk_0:
42:29
Well, said the Dylan, I was like, Did you bring this up? Did you leave this here? And then I picked it up and I had something in Yeah, but he just thought with these toys had choke. But like Apostle,
spk_1:
42:41
you're lying in bed for the night. And then about two o'clock in the morning, He brought his head to head job to bed, started playing with it,
spk_0:
42:48
and it makes it It's a little squeaky noise.
spk_1:
42:50
And then he brought back downstairs in the day and through us, the dirtiest look
spk_0:
42:56
as he was carrying it.
spk_1:
42:58
What, you looking at my head?
spk_0:
43:00
Well, I just heard. I just heard, like a plastic little thump on. I was like ours that had Heggie coming downstairs. And then he walked. But you didn't even walk, like, sashayed into the living room with such attitude and then threw us the side I like. Yes. Can I help?
spk_1:
43:20
Yes, the president is my hedgehog gonna help?
spk_0:
43:22
I'm bringing in Bucktown stays where he belongs. Okay, Spent too long in bed. So this is the part of the show where we try and end on a bit of a high north. So we need you with a bit of positivity that will then come together and create a little correlation off positive energy that we that we want to share with you guys.
spk_1:
43:53
Yes, because as you know, as always, some people might think this is a bit cheesy, and I think it's sometimes we even think this is a bit cheesy Bush. It is actually quite nice because some people need a little bit of motivation. And there's some horrible things going on, as always, is never nice. Never just one nice thing happening, like the flooded in Sheffield and you know, York and things like that. In South Yorkshire, it's awful,
spk_0:
44:20
But even even not just like natural disasters and things like people have their own personal problems. The Bobbsey just burped in the background like I've I've battled with anxiety in depression and all a lot of other people do. Sometimes it's good to think about the positives in life because life and that
spk_1:
44:39
Oh, sorry, I thought you're going to see life on Dhe, then give a big speech. You know, we are designed with a dreaming Breen and hopeful spirit. It is our nature to envision the life of our dreams. And while dreaming comes easy to us, we must never forget that it takes strength, dedication and courageous action to bring that dream to life. No destinies. So yes, dream big. But don't just dream, you know, make that dream come reality. I think that that is easier, far easier said than done boat
spk_0:
45:14
if you try manual SecState. Exactly. I've seen something in the day which I always see, but I seen somebody else Post it. Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, then it's not the end. Yeah, I always say that to you. Don't know a little, you know, So we'll work out in the end. If it hasn't, it's because it's not the end.
spk_1:
45:36
Well, anyway, thank you very much for listening to this Probably along. And you know it is controversial. Corner. I should never ask a political question because it always ends up
spk_0:
45:48
way. Create it in our own heads as well. We like we went on about it like nobody else did. Oh,
spk_1:
45:55
no, I know. That's why I could never ask a little question. Because year old D on DDE politics divides opinion. It divides people on
spk_0:
46:05
households exactly on board it out, afforded in and it was like yea and no
spk_1:
46:15
and yes. So that's why I don't really like politics and pilot. Unfortunately, politics comes into everything, and I'm trying to avoid it and of my own fold for asking that question. But this is still a see If please. These are just our opinions, you know,
spk_0:
46:31
way Never judge anyone for their opinion. Everyone has their own.
spk_1:
46:36
Exactly Like I don't care if you what you've always out or you wouldn't know. You love bar restaurants. Know you love Jeremy Corbyn or you know you want the Lib Dem to become, You know, nobody I don't like. I'm not gonna lose sleep. I'm not gonna No, no, you I'm a strong believer that your opinion is your opinion, and I will. 100% always respect your opinion.
spk_0:
47:03
It's just when people force their opinion. Yeah, on you. That's the problem.
spk_1:
47:08
That's not what we're doing. So apologies if you've taken it that way, but no, it's absolutely not. You bought for you. You want a vote? And you you live. How you want to leave, You decide you have your opinions. That's the beauty of free speech, isn't it? Really So
spk_0:
47:21
Yeah, And you haven't also more might hear something to us. That'll change our opinion.
spk_1:
47:25
Exactly. I've changed my opinion from being a strong labor. Support it to being a strong non liver supporter.
spk_0:
47:33
So with no direction just anyway, we're going back on topic trying to leave on a positive north. So I think what you want your mind is your own daughter. Anyone know? Nobody can tell you what I believe on DDE a few try your best. You will succeed,
spk_1:
47:55
