abuses against migrants, the lgbtq issue, a whole host of other issues. and in making that editorial decision, they shifted the conversation away from it being about sports to a broader conversation. and i think when you open a programme with a conversation about politics and human rights, great. you have to apply that consistently across the board. you must allow the conversation to go beyond just what the bbc at this particular point thinks is appropriate. and roger, let's bring you in on that. this is one critic we've heard a lot, that this was inconsistent from the bbc. yeah. i saw gary's interview as wise and sensible about the really difficult editorial choices. i think what he also said was that probably bbc sport was disproportionately light on russia and probably on china for the winter olympics, and therefore has come

that's within a two-week window. it's that hypocrisy, if it doesn't speak to the republican plan, i don't know what. does fundamentally, this immigration issue is an economic issue. many of these immigrants, yes, are coming to seek legal asylum. many are also coming because the united states needs their work, their efforts, their hard work, which helps sustain our economy, and there are employers desperate to hire them. let's talk about it on the real terms, which is on economic grounds, which is what's driving the movement. >> maria, part of the story of these midterm elections was that latinos continue to show up for the democratic party. many young latinos showed up in arizona. they showed up in nevada. many showed up because of the promise of finally immigration reform, immigration relief. the promise of protecting dreamers. what happens if democrats don't deliver? >> well, first of all, with all due respect, mr. fernand, i was

they will fall. it will all come back into line. republicans aren't only divided on the issue of trump they are also divided on the whether or not to support has minority kevin mccarthy's -- speaker of the house. mccarthy has already vowed to launch a plethora of investigations and democrats and the biden administration. he aims to remove several house democrats from their respective committees, in order to achieve this goal. intelligence committee chair adam schiff is on that list. he commented on this earlier today and agreed with republicans who are skeptical about mccarthy's leadership. >> i think this problem is that he can't get 2 to 18 without marjorie taylor greene, paul gosar, matt gates. so he will do whatever they ask. and right now they're asking for people -- he is willing to do, it he is willing to do anything they ask. and that is the problem with kevin mccarthy. he has no ideology. he has no corset of beliefs. it is very hard to get to 18 that way. it is even more difficult to

Political Thinking with Nick...

and someone had come along from the local fire service and was talking about a career in the fire service. and i asked a question about the role for women in the fire service and was told, sorry, pet, it�*s not for it�*s not for women. and that was, that was in the mid �*90s. so i think it�*s notjust, it�*s a class issue... yeah. ..but i think all too often it comes down to quite clear divides about what men should do and what women should do. and we were a family that liked to challenge that kind of thinking. well, the truth is, you got over that advice. you got to oxford, you got involved in politics, you chaired the university labour club, and then went back home and became the mp, as you say, very young at the age of, at the age of 26. interesting choice to go home. plenty of people who go to the top universities, and that�*s it.

for the fans to enjoy? no, i actually, to be clear, i actually think that sport is a reflection of life. and life is complicated, and life is nuanced, and life deserves context. and life is at the intersection of politics and decisions and controversies. what i have an issue with is when we cherry pick what is acceptable and when to use sports as a platform. and i understand why people sometimes say, "let's just keep politics out of sports," but the truth is, you can't. so i actually come down from the perspective of i believe that colin kaepernick, who is an athlete here in the us who decided to take a knee during the national anthem, has a right to express himself. i also believe that soccer athletes in europe who want to express solidarity with palestinians and gaza have a right to express themselves. and i believe that athletes in europe who want to wear a rainbow armband in qatar have a right to express themselves. what i think is problematic,
