2:30 am
the first place i'm a should never think about the leader in scotland it's true that it's a room let's put him on in that front of you now examine show why haven't the mainstream media not done this before he was b.b.c. news i.t.v. news of channel four news was it deemed not to be newsworthy also said i thought the interesting thing about when to a car was put him on it was that he was allowed the opportunity an english has for flying ways to explain his case in a way that i haven't seen on any other media outlet i thought that was the point but not everybody agrees we have nigel who's emailed him from under the sea here and nigel says the question is do the catalan separatists have the right to seize private coach and horses through normal parliamentary procedures or can vastly the spain have the right to defend its constitution the answer to the first is no and i suggest to the second is yes well nigel it wasn't the spain had the right to defend this constitution it interested me it was the manner in which they were doing it
2:31 am
and the prime minister of oil was to take up the offer to defend that position in the chair in the exam and show that i'll be delighted to accommodate them. this week i caught up with the flying scotsman subject to stuart in geneva where we discussed his glittering career his global activism on the sly and his current campaign the race against dementia so jack is first i want to take you back to your boy who'd been done battle you having a rough time at school you're a bit of a wild child how close were you to your life going off the rails before you found anything you were successful as well as more our acts. a feeling of complete loss of my own abilities because school i was a severe dyslexic i didn't know that then i just thought i was dumb stupid and thick because that's what the teacher was telling me and that was
2:32 am
a class of fifty three people. when you left the primary school to go to the playground and there was a cover for up here and the dummies were back there and i was one of those three or four or five dummies and the feeling of in security and myself of the inferiority against all my other school friends so far so far in my life was so humiliating i mean i couldn't go to school fasten off and your first incest wasn't immortal racing it was a clear pigeon shooting shooting saved my life and the sense of self esteem because i was saw completely deflated by my inabilities of noble evil to read or write or do the things other folk could do so easily and you i mean i never went to any chaps. evenings or anything that would have been made for you
2:33 am
inferior to everybody else i was completely left out of ames and some of the people set you up well done jackie stewart you've won these competitions yeah great play pigeon shooter but how did you then transfer from queen pigeon shooting to mortal sin to formula one motor racing came as a complete surprise it was a rich young man and glasgow whose family foundation would not allow to race which is not unusual and very rich families and i was the mechanic preparing the cars for other folk to drive and so we're awardee said you do what we release we have a which i did and i finished second a complete surprise to me i was amazed and this is where you better have another one and i won the next one and from that point it was almost a sort of rocket ship to call when i won the monaco grand prix. i'd never been abroad or my life before you know i had done shooting but never racing and if you won the monaco grand prix at that time the monday night there was
2:34 am
a big black tie and you sat next to the princess grease and graham hill had won the formula one race and he was in the other say the princess grace and for helen and i to be a night company and these things and those days was like you went on to twenty seven globally formula one wins three world championships. glittering success but of course you will go in for your late ling stance and the grown please but that wasn't all of. the reactions was well target over the monaco grand prix there was a great michael lewis year or a french racing driver lewis you don't got the flag up. there for but when you had to bring it don't from back here he couldn't play it with his arms he had to do it with his legs as well and i was watching him and his. this is news been to bring the flag i was off because there's no way you could restore the fly good and of
2:35 am
course i won the monaco grand prix two three or four times. as usual was ms neves for the rest of those hour everybody was waiting for the for the star look at his knees like a man to the great campaigns that you've been associated with when firstly the campaign and safety in the sport you know look at that nope he was a great thing to make the sport safer but it didn't you put was popular didn't that did not make me popular but it's maybe the most important thing i've done in my life i think if we hadn't done it it was a good chance that formula one grand prix racing could have come to an end because i think the insurance company would have finished in the end because sooner or later we're going to have a car go into the trade your second big campaign one which is still very much on google is on dyslexia but you yourself were diagnosed on a recognized without condition to long after you tire for now isn't it because both
2:36 am
my sons went to a very expensive school and within four weeks of being there the headmaster called me and said you've got two boys they can't keep up the rest of the school when we can. as it would be ridiculous this is the second most expensive school in the world of people our money for it they said well in my case you go to get them assess to mark to begin with to london and he was assessed with dyslexia and i said i don't know what dyslexia is but you do or k. i mean i can't read the rate very well the guy said if you go on minute it took me in ten minutes later i was forty three years of age i was told i was a dyslexic. it was as if i had been saved from the normally when people are diagnosed of a serious condition the members of the dreadful moment for you oh being diagnosed with dyslexia was a revelation that explain the great new wars but what it did do was alone me to get
2:37 am
onto a platform about it because i had been so disadvantaged myself by the educational authorities and you were part of our jack o'connell started it you came in and no necklace being involved and in scotland we've probably got the best package far above england than most other countries know we know you know the something called dyslexia and if you treat people the way we have a dolly was dyslexia he was dyslexic so also resign stage so also was there are the benches sorcerers churchill saw also were all sorts of famous and successful people in the world because they think the box brunson's dyslexic what a business structure he's created and my little world i can't read or write to this day i can't do a letter by hand i just can't spell half of lots of letters for. you don't think because policy no everything's dictated everything is dictated and it's read back
2:38 am
to me i can't read it back so it's a terrible disability still and you think the secret of the way to tackle this is basically in the classroom so that teachers are we're able to identify the can this really was you are examined i phoned up and said listen it's been a disaster and we did so with your minister of education at that time and with the c.e.o. of dyslexia scotland and we got them to agree that every teacher training college in scotland compulsorily had to teach every new teacher at least the sides of. recognition of a child with a learning disability you had a huge success in your campaign on safety and long periods and you've had some success in the weirdness and now you've taken on perhaps the biggest battle of all the race against the mansion tell me why that's become one of your personal
2:39 am
priorities four years ago to minnesota in the united states and got identified as having damage. to medicine to stop people from short term memory and i was very very which which cylinder england it's a terrible disease for many probably to see. that a different way than it's been so you know undergrad think you can win this with the right people behind me yes well let's hope so such ok. so jackie stewart thank you so much thank you alex these are great campaigns from some jackie stewart dyslexia and no dementia coming up after the break we'll be hearing from tasmania and that was the campbell will be stating his case as to why blacks it must be banned see certain. i says was it to buy that americans by the israelis unfortunately
2:40 am
be by financial support of some. cultural contrie in there. for making them and secure the region. hey everybody i'm stephen bob. taft hollywood guy suspects every proud american first of all i'm just george washington and r.v. to say this is my buddy max famous financial guru and we're just a little bit different i've got a. new windows up with all the drama happening in our country and i'm shooting the brood have some fun every day americans. and hopefully start to bridge the gap this is the great american people.
2:41 am
in america a college degree requires a great deal. paying a decades long debt. studying so hard it requires trying to shift. going through humiliation to enter an elite society. and paci into debt sometimes quite literally. wants other true colors of universities in the us.
2:42 am
welcome back last sunday and after soccer forum and title scotland and the new north was held it was hosted by the scottish government with speakers including the first minister the scotland the former president of iceland representatives from the fadeaway was greenland the new european commission let's hear more about it from to. this week's arctic circle for him an edge abre included decision makers from governments organizations universities and many others to quote as interested in the development of the arctic and its consequences for the future of the globe the event the country but not the concourse of interfaces and and of course recently we've seen the scottish government take initiative from poland all of my
2:43 am
in our countries to create a better parent enjoy cause me i'm in shape thank you very much twenty years ago this man made the political well in the united kingdom now he's back and ready for another fight welcome hours to come book let's hear you state your case. we know just how the brain stream is no longer even argue that bret's is going to be great for britain just that we voted for it and so we have to do it well democracy is a process not a moment a country is entitled to change his mind and i believe britain is doing so as the costs and chaos of brecht's that mound as the incompetence of the charlatans around mrs may has exposed as the big questions remain unanswered how i long for mrs may to stand up and make a speech like this i voted remain but on becoming prime minister i felt duty bound to deliver the result to leave i have tried but having looked at it every which way
2:44 am
i've concluded it cannot be done without massive damage to our economy our public services and our standing in the world so i am revoking article fifty and asking the country finally to have the debate with fail to have in the referendum and how about jeremy called and he says he believes in following the views of labor members actually as a project of of new labor is that not an impediment to you reaching out to the labor leadership when it might be it's like when tony blair had to agree with ferrars and johnson go because we lost the referendum i actually think as a father of three kids in their twenty's that if this goes ahead as planned we are ruining our country they you know both know that politics is not just about numbers it's about psychology this moment over the last week where the government are struggling to stamp the date of leaving on the face of the brakes bill do you think that's an important psychological moment in your campaign i do feel that the ground
2:45 am
is shifting they've given up saying this is going to be great their only argument is we voted for it we have to make it happen do people think the government is handling it well or badly nobody thinks the government's handling it well so we're as a country having voted for this the country is now. i think getting really concerned of the idea that we're putting our future in the hands of these people i have never seen a more incompetent government frankly anywhere in the world anywhere in europe as this one to resume a who's a person of the right boris johnson is a proven liar michael gove who's just all about i don't know what live for was wandering around the world of his planes making zero progress on trade david davis who you could tell with david davies has not come confident cause he laughs more but you've been very hard on boss johnson they did the rest of the cabinet unless you just say that they could be in this chair they hardly knew if they wish to reason she in my view is now the the tail is wagging the dog the right wing of her
2:46 am
party is driving her in labor. jeremy cotton seems to me to just have given up talking about bricks every event i do know a start bison. four questions are you optimistic or pessimistic about trump being president and it's ninety five to one hundred pessimism the optimistic or pessimistic about bricks and i tell you or every audience i've yet to get any audience of any sort above about ten fifteen percent and most are nowhere near that just injuries or may will be prime minister the next elation and you have any confidence in trees in may it's close to zero do you think jeremy corbett will win the next election is never above ten percent in your case you said that russia and the media from the u.k. were cheering on the harbor but do you think these forces were responsible for the blacks to vote i think that is parliament doesn't need to look at that in the way that the american system is looking at trump's relationship with russia and his
2:47 am
campaign because there is definitely something is going on and i also think the trees mase worried about what that might find so i do hope that that lead goes further but i think the role of the media i mean obviously if you pick up the string missed lie machine newspapers the my older son the express the telegraph you would think this thing is going absolutely brilliantly and it's all going well we're going to get everything we want and it's a monster famously you once got the sun on save your labor we did it can you what that could get out of so i think we've gone beyond if i one of the arguments are you start with tony after that is i think that having go into power that we did enough to if you like to curb the excesses of our media in the mail those papers on bracelet just a normal propaganda nothing else this idea that democracy and the will of the people that it stopped on june twentieth twenty sixteen that was the will of the people and it will never change well it will change and i think it is time we have
2:48 am
used the argument of a scottish independence show you have a list let's say if the sake of argument you don't win this fight what do you think the implications are for the remaining nations of these i. i was doing a lot to radio the smaller i mean the the extent to which our land has not even figured didn't figure a referendum campaign despite people tried barely figures anything that the government says and cares about this and you know one of the things i'm proudest of in terms of the work that tony blair did as prime minister was the good friday agreement of the peace process they're putting at risk they are putting at risk the building the coalition with the do you pay in my view puts at risk so i think the economic and political risks for ireland are massive i think scotland. are i've been surprised actually by two things i've been surprised that the s.n.p. is not more active on this because i think scots despite the fact that some of your
2:49 am
voters did work for a city as i think actually scotland does feel that this is the wrong thing for scotland of the wrong thing for the u.k. so i'd like to see the s.n.p. government much more active on this and but but i think for the whole of the u.k. this is this is in my view opting for our own decline many many people watching this program all of voted for it so what's your message to them. they're entitled to change their mind if they think that actually what they thought they were voting for is not being delivered they were told it was going to be easy they were told that these trade deals were going to come without any problem they were told we're going to stay in a single market the customs union they were told we're going to get mad millions and millions and millions more for the for the whole service i was speaking at a meeting the other day in near where i live in north london the doctor from the u.c.h. university college hospital stood up and he said something which i thought was really important he said i am seeing the impact of a combination of
2:50 am
a stereotypic and the impact on the economy of the fall in the pound i'm seeing its impact on health care and he said the people need to understand you can have the n.h.s. . we cannot break you're not going to have both and of course the hard right who are pushing this break said they want out they don't want they want a low tax low regulation offshore britain and finally i was to can your case went through hope so i hope so i think it's going to be very very difficult it's very difficult when you've got the government and the opposition party basically saying oh well the people voted this has to happen but i think there is enough people have to stay angry about this i've never seen such a shambles can know if this happens and if it goes ahead and it parliament lets it go ahead as it's being presented the moment we are a country voting for a decline and it's the biggest drop in the history i was. frustrating ok you're ok you get a quick oh no no i have
2:51 am
a bloomin quick there are other soft drinks out of billable thank you so my love for our brew is that right scotland is the only country in the world where coca-cola is not the best selling soft drink a lot of brew said in the sale or thank you some of the girls because of the. strong stuff from the campbell but particularly sealing criticism of the black set cabinet with bottles johnson getting and the neck right of reply is open to any cabinet member who feels put the over the government's mounting problems with bracks difficult to the knife and at the heart of them is the disastrous decision to invoke article fifty last march for folks first securing agreement on a transition period that's placed the u.k. negotiating team and an impossible position entering a time limited negotiation with every single card in the hand of mature barney and his colleagues representing the e.u. twenty seven david davis is taking a lot of stake i think the archangel gabriel would have trouble making
2:52 am
a first of this particular hand the u.k. is facing total humiliation abject humiliation or if we are very lucky perhaps just a humiliation. so what is to be done two choices either set the target as an f. the type deal that is in the region type of arrangement for the u.k. it does mean freedom of movement but it protects the economic benefits of the single market and there's still a low other trade deals to be done the second would be to take the notification of article fifty taylor up and start again. in two weeks time will be a problem that black city of stating their case as to why blacks it must prevail the next thursday we're talking fool to often and head to scotland for us and special so from the team i'm myself good bye for now.
