Documentary adventures that encourage you to take a closer listen. Eleven years after the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in the United Kingdom, a sequence of events unfolded that would rock the British political establishment and test those campaigning for gay rights in the United Kingdom. It resulted in a dead dog, a political career in ruins, a classic comedy sketch and the cause of gay liberation being set back years. Through remarkably candid interviews not previously broadcast in this country with Norman Scott (the former model) and Andrew Newton (the suspected hitman), two of the main protagonists in the trial of Jeremy Thorpe (former leader of the Liberal Party), this documentary revisits a very English scandal and gauges its impact on the struggle for gay rights. We hear from the human-rights activist Peter Tatchell; a member of the Brixton Faeries, Julian Hows, who staged a satirical play based on the Thorpe case; and Tom Robinson, whose song Glad to be Gay hit the charts in 1978. We also hear from Derek Stimpson, archivist of the Worshipful Company of Gunmakers, and archive of Peter Cook as the 'biased judge'.

The US, UK, and Australia are teaming up against China in a new alliance called AUKUS. Of course, the leaders of these countries won't outright say that's the reason, but that's the reason. In this episode of China Unscripted, we talk about the US leading the world on China messaging, what could happen if China takes Taiwan, and former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott's trip to Taiwan, among other things. Joining us in this episode is Lincoln Parker, the chair of Australia's Liberal Party defence policy branch.
One week ago, the woman who has established herself as one of NSW's most popular politicians ever, Premier Gladys Berejiklian sensationally quit following the news that the State's anti-corruption commission ICAC would be investigating her actions. It all stems back to a number of grants handed out in the Wagga Wagga electorate of her former secret boyfriend, disgraced MP Daryl Maguire, but the question is did she do something wrong or is she a victim of circumstance and speculation? The Quicky speaks to an Australian politics expert to find out why Gladys is under investigation, and if this in fact could be the catalyst for her not only surviving a scandal, but rising from the ashes to the very highest office in Australia.

This is one of our most nakedly political conversations - because politics is the language of power and those who rule over us do so with at least the vestige of a democratic mandate. To understand how to affect change, we need to understand how to shift the levers of power on a worldwide scale. But change always begins at home, so in this week's episode, we're talking about political activism in the UK and where it might go in the near term. Our guest is someone really well placed to discuss this: Jeremy Gilbert is Professor of Cultural and Political Theory at the University of East London. His most recent publications include Twenty-First-Century Socialism (Polity 2020) the translation of Maurizio Lazzarato's Experimental Politics and the book Common Ground: Democracy and Collectivity in an Age of Individualism. His next book, Hegemony Now : How Big Tech and Wall Street Won the World , co-authored with Alex Williams, will be published in 2022. He writes regularly for the British press (including the Guardian, the New Statesman, open Democracy and Red Pepper) and for think tanks such as IPPR and Compass, is routinely engaged in debates and discussion on Labour Party policy and strategy, and has appeared on national television as a spokesperson for Jeremy Corbyn's leadership of the Labour Party.He has been involved with both mainstream party politics and extra-parliamentary activism throughout his adult life, having been an active participant in the social forum movement of the early 2000s, a member of the founding national committee of Momentum (the controversial organisation established to support Corbyn's leadership of Labour), and being a former elected member management committee of Compass, a pluralist left-wing think tank and lobby group.Jeremy is an an advisor to and participant in a range of ongoing projects such as The World Transformed and the New Economy Organisers Network. He has also participated in many cultural projects, particularly connected with music and sonic culture, and is a founder member of Lucky Cloud Sound System and Beauty and the Beat, two successful and respected collectives that have been organising regular dance parties in East London since the early 2000s, at many of which he still regularly DJs.Jeremy also maintains a lifelong commitment to public education outside the academy, currently hosting Culture, Power, Politics, a regular series of free open seminars and lectures.Links: Jeremy's website: https://www.jeremygilbert.orgJeremy's blog: https://jeremygilbertwriting.wordpress.com/2021/06/04/2020-analysis/Jeremy's papers on Open Democracy: https://jeremygilbertwriting.wordpress.com/2021/06/04/2020-analysis/Guardian review of Jeremy's book 'Twenty First Century Socialism': https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/feb/06/twenty-first-century-socialism-by-jeremy-gilbert-reviewJeremy at Novara Media: https://novaramedia.com/tag/jeremy-gilbert/Compass: https://www.compassonline.org.uk/The World Transformed: https://www.theworldtransformed.org/Momentum: https://www.theworldtransformed.org/

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney continues to face criticism from all sides for his handling of the pandemic in the prairie province, where doctors are begging for an immediate lockdown as the health care system remains on the brink of collapse. Other premiers and leaders across the country have not faced the same kind of crisis in this fourth wave — how did Alberta get here, and what happens next? Rosie and Elamin also look ahead to what priorities Justin Trudeau is hoping to tackle as his Liberal Party will continue to govern and as Parliament is set to return before the end of the fall. Party Lines is also saying farewell for now — but you can expect to hear Elamin and Rosie back here in your feeds, whenever the next federal election rolls around.

BIBLIOGRAPHY Politics of Fear: What Right-Wing Populist Discourses Mean by Ruth Wodak (2015) Methods of Critical Discourse Studies by Ruth Wodak and Michael Meyer (2015) The Routledge Handbook of Language and Politics by Ruth Wodak and Bernhard Forchtner (2017) Österreichische Identitäten im Wandel:Empirische Untersuchungen zu ihrer diskursiven Konstruktion1995-2015 (German Edition) by Rudolf de Cillia, Ruth Wodak, Markus Rheindorf and Sabine Lehner (2020)The Politics of Fear: The shameless normalization of far-right populist discourses (Second Edition) by Ruth Wodak (2020) GLOSSARY What is “Right-wing Populist Perpetuum Mobile”?(00:3:56 or p.1 in the transcript) Theory that refers to the strong interdependence between media and parties, where media (and politicians) fall into the traps set by right-wing parties in the form of discursive strategies of provocation, exaggeration and scandalization, helping these parties to frame the agenda and appear on the front page in the news. SourceWho was Jörg Haider? (00:4:02 or p.1 in the transcript) Controversial Austrian politician, a charismatic and a skillful orator, who served as leader of the far-right Freedom Party of Austria (1986–2000) and Alliance for the Future of Austria (2005–08) and as governor of the Bundesland (Federal State) of Kärnten (1989–91; 1999–2008).Haider virulently denounced immigration and opposed the expansion of the European Union to the east—positions that were applauded by a wide spectrum of Austrians. Particularly controversial were the number of statements he made about Hitler and the Nazis. SourceWhat is Austrian Freedom Party (Freiheitliche Partei Österreich or FPÖ)?(00:4:11 or p.1 in the transcript) The populist Freedom Party of Austria, sometimes referred to as the Liberal Party, was founded in 1955 as a successor to the League of Independents. Initially drawing the bulk of its support from former National Socialists, the party's fiercely right-wing views had been largely moderated by the 1980s, and it participated in a coalition government with the SPÖ. In the late 1980s that ideological swing was reversed party leader Jörg Haider, who brought the FPÖ unprecedented electoral success with a Euroskeptic platform that capitalized on anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim sentiment. An internecine feud in 2005 caused Haider to leave the FPÖ and form a new party, the Alliance for the Future of Austria (Bündnis Zukunft Österreich; BZÖ). While the FPÖ remained a significant, if controversial, force in national politics in the 21st century, electoral support for the BZÖ declined greatly after Haider's death in 2008. Source What is Fridays for Future? (00:24:30 or p.4 in the transcript) Fridays for Future (or FFF) is a youth-led and -organized, independent global climate strike movement that started in August 2018, when 15-year-old Greta Thunberg began a school strike for climate, sitting outside the Swedish Parliament every school day, demanding urgent action on the climate crisis. The goal of the movement is to put moral pressure on policymakers, to make them listen to the scientists and take actions to limit global warming. Source

This week's episode takes a look at the results of last week's Canadian Federal Election, where Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party has retained its minority Government status and the composition of Parliament barely changed. It dives into the various regions and provinces, analysing where the Liberals faltered in their pursuit of a majority and where the Conservatives failed in their quest to make significant in-roads. As Justin Trudeau looks to start his third administration as Prime Minister, Sam and Chern take a detailed look at the results across Canada. Why did Erin O'Toole's Conservative Party fail to capitalise on their early momentum in the campaign? Which region was the most problematic for Trudeau in his quest for a majority? Will the NDP be disappointed with a series of missed opportunities? And what next for the Greens after dismal set of results? All these questions and more answered in this week's podcast. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ballot-to-talk-about/message

Canada's leader Justin Trudeau has secured another term, but without an overall majority. Mr Trudeau had hoped Canadians would reward his handling of the pandemic and relatively smooth vaccine roll out by returning his Liberal Party with a strong majority, but journalist Jatinder Sidhu in Vancouver explains why that didn't happen, and discusses the economic implications of the result. Also in the programme, there's been widespread fallout across Europe from rapidly rising energy prices. The BBC's Ed Butler considers the consequences for business, and explores the role of Russia in the whole affair. Plus, shares in Universal Music Group soared by as much as a third as they were spun off from French media giant Vivendi with a listing on the Amsterdam stock exchange. We find out why from Dr Matt Grimes, who is an expert on the music business at Birmingham City University. Presenter: Mike Johnson Producers: Matthew Davies and Russell Padmore.
Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada won their third straight election, but failed to capture a majority mandate in Canada's 44th federal election. By early Tuesday morning, the results nearly mirrored the seat count when parliament was dissolved.So now the question that is being asked is: Was the campaign worth it? Political columnist and writer at-large John Ibbitson and parliamentary reporter Kristy Kirkup join to discuss this, and break down what happened on election night and what it means for the country.You can find more coverage of the results in the days after the election at www.theglobeandmail.com.
It's snap election day in Canada and there's still several hours until the polls close, to determine the fate of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The Liberal Party leader was regarded a warm favourite to retain power when last month he nominated an election date nearly two years ahead of schedule. Recent polling suggests Trudeau faces a fierce challenge from the Conservative Party leader Erin O'Toole. Canada correspondent Laura McQuillan spoke to Susie Ferguson.
On Monday Canadians will vote in a snap election called by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau just two years after they last voted. He hopes to turn his minority in parliament into a majority having previously enjoyed favourable reviews for his handling of the pandemic. But since calling the election, a fourth wave of Covid infection has gathered pace in parts of the country prompting claims that he is putting his own political interests ahead of the public's by going ahead with the vote. Some polls even show the governing Liberal Party slipping behind its main rival the Conservatives, led by Erin O'Toole. The PM also faces a strong challenge from the left in the form of New Democratic Party leader Jagmeet Singh, and Quebec-nationalist party the Bloc Québécois is also polling strongly. So, what are the main issues that will decide the election and are Canadians in the mood for change? Ritula Shah is joined by a panel of expert guests. Producers: Junaid Ahmed and Paul Schuster.
Within a few weeks, Australia will begin trialling our first vaccine passports, following in the footsteps of many other countries where this digital document is already commonly used to gain access to domestic services like hairdressers and restaurants, and international travel. For many people this is the logical next step as we try to find a way to move forward with our lives and 'learn to live with Covid', but for others this is yet another violation of our rights to freedom of choice and movement. The Quicky speaks to an expert in mandatory vaccination policy and a Federal Government Minister to break down how vaccine passports will work in Australia, and explore why people are divided on whether they should exist at all.

Canada's 44th general election is underway. On September 20th, electors will return the members of Parliament who will decide who governs the country. When casting a ballot, however, voters typically think of political parties and their leaders. So, we ask: What are the policy priorities of Canada's political parties? On this episode of Open to Debate, David Moscrop talks with candidates from three of the country's major political parties: Angella MacEwen of the New Democratic Party, Annamie Paul, leader of the Green Party, and Nathaniel Erskine-Smith of the Liberal Party. The Conservative Party was invited to participate but declined. The interviews for this episode were recorded at different times and on different dates, beginning with the NDP, followed by the Green Party, and, finally, the Liberal Party. Changes during the writ period after recording will not be reflected in the interviews.

Matthew Guy MP has been elected as the leader of the Liberal Party in Victoria, replacing an often criticised Michael O'Brien. That means it will be Matthew Guy vs Dan Andrews in a David and Goliath battle in November 2022 for who rules Victoria. I'm keen to see the electorate (and Matthew Guy) wake to the fact that we no longer want to be 'ruled', and we simply want a supportive government who puts us first by allowing us to go about our lives. Interesting part of this exclusive conversation with Richard Riordan MP on the leadership spill, is that voting for all of the minor parties we love ahead of Liberals is fine in his view - as long as we put Labor last. This makes sense - with our preferential voting system the only real win the Liberals need is for people to put them above the ALP - even if that's putting Liberals second last, and Labor last. Personally, I will enjoy giving minor parties a whole lot more power in the next Victoria election to break the duopoly.

There's a new book of political alternative histories out called Prime Minister Priti: And other things that never happened. One of its editors is a Liberal Democrat. So who better to have back on Never Mind The Bar Charts than that editor… Duncan Brack. Listen to us discuss how Eric Joyce having one drink too many caused Brexit (perhaps), what the appeal is of political counter-factuals, our favourite chapters from this book and how one change in the events of 1923 could have led to a very different political history for the Liberal Party.

Central bankers from around the world are about to meet - virtually - to discuss challenging issues like inflation. We hear from Mohamed el-Erian, former chief executive of bond fund Pimco, about where we are in the global recovery. And a new study involving very young children in Mali and Burkina Faso suggests that a new vaccine combination developed by the UK-based pharma company GSK could reduce deaths and illness from malaria by 70% and millions of lives could be saved every year. We hear more from Dr Daniel Chandramohan, Professor of Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine; he co-authored the report on the trials. Plus, Canadians go to the polls soon to give their verdict on the last six years of minority government by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal Party; we look at the issues at stake. And the English city of Liverpool lost its UNESCO World Heritage designation after 17 years; the BBC's Victoria Craig takes a look at why. And we're joined throughout the programme by Mitchell Hartman of Marketplace - he's in Oregon. And Rebecca Jones, Bloomberg's Managing Editor for Australia and New Zealand dials in from Melbourne.

Matthew Guy MP is the former leader of the Liberal Party in Victoria. Today he accepted an invitation to visit an outdoor children's playground with me and explain why politicians are not standing up for our kids over the immoral, unscientific and - until they release health evidence - illegal closure of playgrounds across Melbourne. We discussed the crisis in mental health, the stupidity of closing outdoor playgrounds, the legality of such disproportionate actions, and the evidence that schools should safely open NOW, long before any vaccination targets are reached.
