Poet Joelle Taylor won the Polari Prize last night and the TS Eliot Prize in January this year. Over a long career as a writer for the page and the stage she has explored butch lesbian counterculture and told the stories of the women in underground communities fighting for the right to be themselves. She joins Emma Barnett to explain how joining the literary establishment fits with a lifetime of protest. As Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Minister Dominic Raab stands in for Prime Minister's Questions today, despite accusations of bullying, we look at how MPs and the macho culture of Westminster can be called to account without an ethics advisor, since Lord Geidt resigned earlier this year. Emma speaks to Pippa Crerar political editor of The Guardian and Christine Jardine, Liberal Democrat MP Edinburgh West, spokesperson for Cabinet Office, Women and Equalities and Scotland, who yesterday tabled a bill asking for parliament to appoint an ethics advisor if the conservative party fails to do so. We speak to director Sally El Hosaini about her new film The Swimmers which is based on the true story two Syrian sisters who fled Damascus in a dinghy boat in order to escape war and build a new life for themselves. One of those sisters, Yusra Mardini, will also be speaking to Emma Barnett about how she feels about her story being turned into a film. Fantasy Football is a hugely popular online game which requires building a make believe team of real world players who compete in the Premier League. But the growth of women managers has exceeded that of men in the last five years, rising by 112%. With the Premier League taking a break for the first ever winter World Cup, we explore the challenges early female participants of Fantasy Football have faced and what their participation in the game, and a growing interest in football, could have on the sport.

BBC 100 - Kim Moore poem with women's voices, Auntie Beeb with Mel Giedroyc, former MP Anne Milton on Gavin Williamson

Today it is 100 years since the BBC began broadcasting on radio. To celebrate that centenary, we have commissioned a poem by Kim Moore and created a soundscape to show how much women's lives, and the noises that surround them, have changed - using BBC archive from the 1920s right through to the present day. We also ask why did the BBC get its nickname ‘Auntie'? And what kind of aunt would she be? To mark 100 years since the BBC started daily radio broadcasts, Emma Barnett is joined by television presenter and comedian Mel Giedroyc and historian of the BBC Professor Jean Seaton. Sir Gavin Williamson resigned from the cabinet last week following allegations of bullying; the Labour MP Charlotte Nichols has claimed there is a "whisper list" of 40 politicians to never accept a drink from or be alone with; and claims have emerged over the weekend that civil servants at the Ministry of Justice were offered “respite or a route out” when Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab was reappointed last month. Emma asks Anne Milton, the former deputy chief whip who has accused Gavin Williamson of subjecting MPs to “unethical and immoral behaviour" - whether we can infer a 'blokeish' culture in politics. We also hear from Isabel Hardman, Assistant Editor at the Spectator. Anna Sorokin was born to an ordinary family in Moscow, before moving to Germany as a teenager. But upon arriving in New York, she transformed herself into Anna Delvey, a German multimillionaire heiress with a trust fund in Europe. She used this persona to lead a lavish lifestyle and conned friends, big banks and hotels into thinking that her fortune could cover the luxury she desired. But it was all a con. She was found guilty in 2019 of theft of services and grand larceny, having scammed more than $200,000 (£145,000) and spent almost four years in jail. In her first radio interview since being released, Anna Delvey joins Emma.

It's hard to imagine leaving a job in disrepute but then giving 20 of your mates a top honour that allows them to create the laws of this country. Well, maybe it isn't that hard to imagine. It's what Boris Johnson appears to have done with his Resignation Honours List. Lara Spirit of the Times tells us that four sitting MPs want to accept peerages without immediately giving up their seats in the House of Commons. That's a constitutional clash for a start. And then there's the advisors who have barely reached their thirties who are being offered the mother of all accolades in the mother of all parliaments. Do we really want our laws being made by a bunch of the former PM's friends? We speak to Leader of the Opposition in the Lords, Baroness Angela Smith. And, after the latest revelations about Charmer-in-Chief Gavin Williamson - who told a senior civil servant to 'slit his throat' but denies it was bullying - we ask what it takes to NOT get an honour from this government.Socials: Georgia FoxwellVideo: Will Gibson-SmithProduction: Gabriel RadusDeputy Editor: Tom HughesExecutive Producer: Dino SofosFor exclusive daily videos from The News Agents visit Global Player: https://www.globalplayer.com/videos/brands/news-agents/the-news-agents/The News Agents is a Global Player Original and a Persephonica Production.

Roy Jenkins looks at what some regard as one of the most significant developments for religious faith in Britain for generations: a practising Hindu in the highest office in the land. It's only 8 years since Rishi Sunak became an MP, so the speed of his ascent has been astonishing. But this is a Prime Minister from a very different mould to many of his predecessors: he really does ‘do faith'. Only it's not the Christian one. Roy talks to three Hindus in Wales to discover what they make of this the youngest Prime Minister in modern times, and the first ever Hindu in that role. How – if at all - might his faith and cultural background shape his personal and political values? And where – if at all - might these values cause him difficulty? Until his promotion to the role of Chancellor, few outside Westminster had heard of Rishi Sunak. Yet he rapidly created a favourable impression, introducing policies such as the furlough scheme and the popular ‘Eat Out to Help Out' to woo nervous diners back to the hospitality sector. It has to be said, Sunak has not been elected by the public at large – only by a majority of MPs of his own party. Nevertheless, his rise has confounded many expectations. And according to some Hindu believers, the portents are highly auspicious: Sunak was appointed on Diwali. Taking part in the programme are Vishnav Hindu theologian and teacher Akhandadhi Das, retired RE teacher Neera Vyas, and Dr Poonam Singal of the Hindu Cultural Association of Wales.

The Common Stages In The Co-Parenting Journey

Today's episode is on the topic of co-parenting. I work with divorced, separated, or never-married parents all the time at Modern Parenting Solutions and I know that the co-parenting relationship can be a tricky one. Some co-parents find a way to work well together, while others have to figure out how to parent with a contentious and difficult ex. That's why I say that co-parenting is a journey and that every co-parent's journey is different. I'm also a co-parent myself. My ex-husband and I divorced when my kids were 10 and 7 years old, and today they are 24 and 21, and I think that my ex-husband and I did a pretty good job of peacefully co-parenting our kids. Now, don't get me wrong, there were a lot of ups and downs during our co-parenting journey, but for the most part, I believe that we were pretty successful co-parents. I used my Modern Parenting philosophy during my co-parenting journey which included: Prioritizing respectful relationships, Focusing on helping the kids discover and grow their natural talents and abilities, and Respecting my need to grow as an individual and to be happy (because I matter too!).. Because of all this experience with co-parenting, I've put all my Modern Parenting strategies in my court-approved online co-parenting class. Many parents are court-mandated or advised by their family law attorney to take a co-parenting class as part of their custody plan, so I decided to create my own co-parenting class to meet this need. Now, there are quite a few co-parenting classes available online, but I wanted mine to be different in the sense that I wanted to address the topics and questions that I get from co-parents all the time when I work with them at MPS. Questions like: How do I parent with a narcissistic or uncooperative ex? How do I discipline my kids if their other parent doesn't have any discipline at their home? How do I repair my relationship with my child if it has become broken? How do I communicate to my ex and to my kids when I don't feel like they respect me or care about what I have to say? And most importantly – how do I move on from an emotional breakup? How do I use this experience to become a better version of ME so I can enjoy life again? I answer all these questions and more in my online court-approved co-parenting class. You can find out more information about the class by going to ModernParenitngSolutions.org/onlinecoparentingclass. To give you an idea of what my online co-parenting course is like, and to start you on your co-parenting journey, today's episode is one of the lessons in my online co-parenting course. It's the lesson on the common stages of co-parenting. I want you to get 3 things out of the episode today: I want you to understand the common stages of the co-parenting journey, I want you to be able to identify where YOU are on the co-parenting journey, and I want you to feel confident and hopeful that if you are struggling in your co-parenting journey right now, that you CAN get to a stage in the co-parenting journey that provides you with peace, a good relationship with your child, and a great relationship with yourself too. Ok. Let's dive into the lesson now.

Tim Murtagh completed his PhD at Trinity College Dublin. He was a historical consultant on the Dublin Tenement Museum at No. 14 Henrietta Street and a book based on this research will be appearing later next year. Since April 2020, Tim has been an Archival Research Fellow with the Beyond 2022 project, an international research project working to create a virtual reconstruction of the Public Record Office of Ireland, which was destroyed in the opening engagement of the Irish Civil War in 1922. In this interview he discusses his new book Irish Artisans and Radical Politics, 1776-1820: Apprenticeship to Revolution (Liverpool UP, 2022), a study of working-class life and politics in the major urban centers of Ireland in the years before and after the United Irishman Rebellion of 1798. Irish Artisans and Radical Politics is a comparative study of the political activities of workers in three Irish cities: Dublin, Belfast and Cork. It investigates how Ireland's journeymen and apprentices engaged in campaigns for political reform, as well as in revolutionary conspiracies, during the years 1776 to 1820. This book marks the first ever attempt to analyse the role of Irish workers in the creation of eighteenth-century republicanism, representing the careful distillation of nearly a decade of research on the topic. It argues that Irish craftsmen truly did serve an ‘apprenticeship to revolution'. In the literal sense, the experience of the workshop provided artisans with a set of traditions which shaped how new revolutionary doctrines were received. But generations of Irish workers also served a figurative apprenticeship to successive political movements: the campaigns of Irish ‘Patriot' MPs, the Volunteering movement of the 1770s, and the revolutionary campaigns of the United Irishmen. The book explores the role of urban workers within the 1798 Irish Rebellion and Robert Emmet's 1803 rising and, adopting a transnational framework, places the actions of these Irish artisans within the context of British radicalism and the creation of an industrial working class.

Politics in the UK is in a state of turmoil. Every time we think it can't get any crazier, it finds a way of doing just that. Many of the roots of the trouble can be found in Brexit. Whatever you think of Brexit, it's clear that the referendum of June 2016 forced parliament to implement a massive switch in the direction of the country that most MPs thought was wrong, and split the main parties – particularly the Conservative Party – down the middle. The politics of ideology trumped the politics of competence. This week we look at a new piece of research by two researchers here at UCL, which sheds light on an important aspect of the story.  It assesses just how much influence parliament had in shaping the various laws that had to be passed to make Brexit a reality and put alternative arrangements in place. The authors of the study are: Dr Tom Fleming, Lecturer in British and Comparative Politics here in the UCL Department of Political Science and a member of the UCL Constitution Unit, and Lisa James, Research Fellow at the Constitution Unit and co-author of the forthcoming OUP book, The Parliamentary Battle over Brexit.  Mentioned in this episode:Fleming, T. and James, L., 'Parliamentary Influence on Brexit Legislation, 2017–2019', Parliamentary AffairsRussel, M. and James, L., 'The Parliamentary Battle over Brexit'.

Rogue refuges update, Una Marson, Agony aunts, Iran

Woman's Hour

In a shocking report out today MPs say too many women who've survived domestic abuse are ending up in appalling accommodation operated by rogue landlords who exploit housing benefit loopholes to cash in on a ‘gold rush' of taxpayers' money. Some women and their children find themselves housed in mixed-sex provision, or even alongside their perpetrators. The current rules mean anyone can set up what is called Exempt Accommodation if they offer care, support, or supervision that is ‘more than minimal'. One provider left a loaf of bread and some jam to achieve that standard. Others say fitting CCTV is enough to qualify. The All Party Parliamentary Select Committee on Levelling Up Housing and Communities make a number of recommendations aimed at stopping unscrupulous operators getting enhanced housing benefit without providing the wraparound support and staff they're meant to offer survivors of domestic abuse. Krupa Padhy talks to the Chair of the Committee Clive Betts Labour MP and Becky Rogerson, CEO of Wearside Women in Need. In 1691, a journalist called John Dunton was having an affair and realised there was no one he could ask for advice about it without revealing his identity. Realising his situation couldn't be unique, he invited readers of his newspaper to submit their problems. Today agony aunt columns are the mainstay of the back pages of our newspapers and magazines. But why do we still seek comfort from the written advice of strangers? Krupa Padhy is joined by best-selling author and Sunday Times Style agony aunt Dolly Alderton, and author of ‘Never Kiss A Man in a Canoe,' Tanith Carey. Yesterday marked 40 days since the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini who died in police custody after being arrested for allegedly wearing her hijab “improperly”. Thousands of mourners gathered near Amini's grave in her hometown of Saqqez where Iranian police reportedly fired live rounds and tear gas at the crowds. Protests have taken place across the country since Mahsa's death on 16th September and women have been at the forefront of the movement, removing their headscarves and cutting their hair in public in solidarity. Faranak Amidi, the BBC's Near East women affairs reporter, joins Krupa. On Woman's Hour we talk about girls a lot, how we raise them, keeping them safe, their mental and physical health but we don't often talk to them. For an occasional series called Girl's World, Ena Miller went to talk to India and Alice at their school about their lives, the things they think about, chat about and worry about. She took along her teenage diary to jog her memory about the secret world of the teenage girl. When Una Marson became the BBC's first black radio producer and presenter in the 1940s, she brought Caribbean voices and culture to a global audience. Krupa speaks to actor Seroca Davis on playing Una in BBC2's documentary-drama ‘Una Marson, Our Lost Caribbean Voice'.

A committee of MPs hears concerns that a toxic chemical trapped in estuary sediments could have killed shellfish off the North East Coast of England. The issue was raised in evidence given to the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Select Committee. The group was told by the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science - which investigated the deaths for DEFRA - that a combination of two algal blooms was to blame. Time was when a traditional British Halloween involved little more than apple-bobbing and maybe a carved pumpkin for one night only. Nowadays it's a huge industry worth more than £600 million pounds. We visit Richard Bower, who grows 20 acres of pumpkins on his farm in Staffordshire, and now makes over £200,000 from his pick-you-own experience. And agroforestry - where trees are integrated to arable fields or pasture - could mean for some, producing nuts alongside more traditional field crops. So is there a market for UK grown nuts?

*) PM Truss resigns as UK political turmoil deepens amid new election demand British Prime Minister Liz Truss has dramatically announced her resignation just six weeks after taking office. Truss bowed to the inevitable after her right-wing platform of tax cuts disintegrated and many MPs among the ruling Conservatives revolted. Speaking in Downing Street, Truss said she would stay on as prime minister until a successor is chosen to serve as Tory leader. *) Israeli troops kill Palestinian youth, wound three in West Bank Israeli troops have killed a Palestinian youth and wounded three others in the occupied West Bank, Palestine's Health Ministry said. The ministry said the 19-year-old suffered a mortal wound in the neck, while three others were wounded by live gunshots to their limbs. The violence happened as Israeli forces staged an arrest raid in Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank that has been a flash point in recent fighting. *) Bloodbath as Chad forces kill scores in protests Security forces in Chad opened fire on anti-government demonstrators in the country's two largest cities killing at least 60 people and wounding some 300, government spokesperson said. Prime Minister Saleh Kebzabo said the government was still compiling casualties from what he described as an armed insurrection. Authorities imposed a curfew after the violence, which came amid demonstrations in the central African nation against interim leader Mahamat Idriss Deby's extension of his power. *) Türkiye's Erdogan, Azerbaijan's Aliyev inaugurate Zangilan airport Türkiye's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev jointly inaugurated a new airport in an area liberated from the Armenian occupation. Erdogan is the first foreign leader to land at the Zangilan International Airport, Azerbaijan's second airport in territories reclaimed from Armenia during the 2020 Karabakh War.
