through the post, it's digitized and is sent to you via registered email right here in spain. We all have a personal um code that's purely peculiar to us uh for accessing and fulfilling uh government procedures and it's it's it's tied to one particular computer. You have to designate that computer and only access these government pages from your computer using your digital code. They've got you, that's it, Big Brother's got you. Then they can they can do anything, they wish I've got a problem with that. I think it's only people with something to hide uh going to be a bit worried but it is just more and more control. That's the worry inside of it. And the hands that it slips into which is the dark side of it, his hands whose hands are information slips into. And how would you give your grandson, for example, a few bob for pocket money, How would that work? Well you don't put a pound note in there in a birthday card anymore. I'll send a transfer. The very he's got a bank account opened up in his own name or invariably I'll send you through to his parents. I send the transfer through to the parents instruction for them to give it to the kid who are by the kid is something, you know, the pound note doesn't go in the, in the old days. You got you got you got your birthday card out of the envelope, first thing you did. We shake it upside down. Okay, what about innovation then? Where do you see that one? Well, I don't know, you can read it, you can you can do anything with that. Innovation is expanding people's brainpower to invent more things than we've certainly because of the, the rest of the covid. We've been under many things in the medical world have like in leaps and bounds, progressed enormously to the result that we've now been vaccinated to keep the covid a bait, shall we say, from giving us poor health and it seems to be working extremely well. Whereas previously it would say years for a for a vaccine to get marketed and out on the streets. But just as the Second World War push this through a whole century, as far as I'm concerned of innovations. So the word innovation is extremely important. It needs feeding, you need money to research and develop things apart from the fact that developing the ideas, the idea that you should be looking for ways of better in your way of life by innovative methods. So hopefully the innovations is going to be some form of grants to the universities, to the colleges and private individuals as well as governments. Okay, now then we look at competitiveness and culture, competitiveness. Yes. And that's fairly straightforward culture. I mean, we seem to be allowing people to go around breaking our cultural traditions left, right and center Plus, of course, it would appear that there are aspects of this lockdown which have been totally contrary to what would be the cultural activity here in spain. Well, that's the dangerous one, isn't it? If we've seen council culture, we've seen all manner of weird goings on in the last 18 months regarding culture, regarding people wishing to rewrite history. Um, I'm very wary on that one. I mean, what, where's where's that gonna when you're gonna go to another one? That's rather strange. Is the cohesion and inclusion, which basically means money will be going through rather strange projects to have all sorts of weird things be acceptable when really they're not acceptable. Yeah. If you're gonna actually headline cohesion and inclusion, what you're basically saying is, if you come up, if we come up with any new ideas, doesn't matter what it is, um, you know, it's going to just stretch the imaginations even further to see how far we can get away from what we've lived as for maybe all the time up to this pandemic. You know, we've got the bottom line is coming from brussels and uh, there's going to be tags and lines and strings attached. You better believe it. And uh, it's all a way of giving the kids a few more sweets and make them see granddad in, in, in favorable eyes as far as I'm concerned that money is needed, but I'm not so sure they're spending it the right way. We all know where the money is needed. People are hungry, people are homeless. Uh, most of the reasons you, you read out for this vast amount of money to be piled into Italy most of it, I don't see that putting roofs on people's heads and food on the plate and clothes on their back. I don't see that. And that is and uncertainty. It's proven that the, the medical grounds of of a lot of these countries are just italy suffered tremendously. We we managed to get away with in spain and kept it at the door uh seem to cope extremely well, but but they are still under a lot of pressure. So I think one thing but they should have learned in all this is we really need to take a strong, hard look at health care. Okay, we'll go next to a french jewish judge has resigned. This is in protest after a controversial high court decision not to prosecute a man who killed a 65 year old jewish woman because he was on drugs at the time. Jack broader quit his post at the Tribunal of Commerce of Nancy in Eastern France. Over the decision, which has seen demonstrations in France and globally I decided to resign over the ruling, which at first I couldn't believe said broader according to Le Figaro from what the article seemed to be saying, it was basically because this guy was high on drugs, he couldn't be accountable for what he did. Now that is as strange as it's ever going to get. Well that's that's a gear the shower card for every drunken driver in the world, didn't it was certainly in France. You know, I was drunk, can't be brains, I didn't know what I was doing. Okay. I really I couldn't, when I first read that I thought this is this is a joke, this is some form of april for this cannot cannot be true. I think it's bending over backwards not to rattle the cage of terrorists, shall we say? Um trying to get away from that to me, all it's done is he's handed a green card to Marine le pen and the far right and the uh shortly to be had elections in France that Macron must be really worried about that one. Okay, We come next to home and the Valencian health department announcing on saturday that only 2.64% of the regional hospital beds are now occupied by covid 19 patients. Put another way, the current overall occupancy of beds is at 69.29 of which 66.65 on non covid patients. And the health minister, Ana Barthel Oh, said that after more than a month with the seven and 14 day incident rate per 100,000 population below 50. The low rate of hospital occupancy, both acute and critical shows the region as well below the average. And she added by being responsible, we have achieved some of the lowest hospitalization rates in the whole country. So uh that looks like it could be signaling ready for maybe re relaxing a little bit. Although quite frankly if it just means opening up to all the people coming in on planes and traveling from all around the country. We're back where we started, aren't we? I'm interested to see how this pans out because I think he's made the ninth, the state of alarm gets released and so called normality can return though the individual autonomous regions do have a certain amount of to say about that, for instance, that we're still under a curfew here like 11 o'clock at night, you have to go back home and tucked up in bed. Um but they can still do that. The regional governments can still impose a curfew, so maybe maybe that may happen, maybe that maybe that may relax that a little bit. I'm not too sure what I'm worried about is the fact that we, we in Valencia province and we do have one of the lowest incidence in Spain because we have been under quite a strict regime throughout all this. Andalucia love the custody el sol have released their, relax their laws, hospitality quite a bit back before easter. Um and they, their cases arise in Madrid have always relaxed their hospitality rules and regs regarding Covid and they've got massive, they've got on the highest infection rates in Spain and I'm hoping that chemo pooch, which is the president of Valencian community, keeps keeps an eye on all this, is going to let the leash a little bit slacker. But I do believe that. I don't think he's stupid enough to kill the goose that's been laying the golden egg regarding our health. I think we've, we've all done wonderfully well with all knuckle down and kept to it. I had my job on yesterday. Thank God for that. I've been waiting for that one long enough. So I'm feeling I'm breathing a bit better at the minute, but I'm just hopeful that it doesn't ruin it by which happened at easter. Of course we had 1/4 wave start, which wasn't too bad again where we were, but we weren't allowed out of our profits. Everybody in France and Germany, etcetera could jump in their cars and drive throughout Spain through every single province and theoretically bring their diseases and coughs and colds with them. Uh, yeah, we weren't allowed to leave the boundaries of our province. I did follow that very, very strange. I think that's there's only one word. Don't think of that when you do something for money. That's not quite right. It's called prostitution. Um I don't want to see the province prostitute in itself um and expending our lives accordingly. But I fully understand the economical woes which basically is tourism. There has to be fed. They have to be nurtured. Like I see that relaxing. But they have said they will allow people and as long as they have a vaccination passport with both a proof of both vaccinations, which is fine for the older people. But the younger younger families won't be going anywhere, will they wouldn't have thought so. Let's go to the next one then it will be a second. Okay. Mhm. Mhm. Okay. The spanish, far right party vox has committed to a set of demands made by the ultra conservative catholic organization. Has leo here make yourself heard ahead of the Madrid regional elections. Uh this was um on much it's actually saying March the fourth. It can't be much that could be make a change to that, the Madrid election today. Yeah, they've written March the fourth in the paper, but never mind. The six point list includes a commitment to block access to the right to abortion and euthanasia, and to repeal regional laws protecting people against discrimination, realization discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation. The Box candidate, Rossio Ministerio, who has a close relationship with his Taoyuan, has backed the agenda, which already closely mirrors the far right party. The first point on the list is to advance the protection of the right to life of all human beings from conception to natural death. In other words, to make it more difficult to access the rights to abortion and euthanasia. The catholic lobby also wants women seeking an abortion in Madrid to be asked if they want to hear the fetus's heartbeat. This is a controversial practice. Fox Deputy Gado Yaya has already been offering outside of abortion clinics in the region. Um, okay, this is all pretty heavy stuff. They're also calling for the repeal of all regional laws that protect LGBT Q plus people from discrimination. This would end the ban on so called conversion therapy, which treats homosexuality as a disease that can be cured. These practices were banned by the very laws that has to say, oh, here, once repealed. The list also calls for the introduction of the so called parental veto, a policy that gives parents the right to stop their Children from attending complementary workshops organized during school hours. This measure, which was first proposed by vox, means that schools need to ask for parents permission to give talks on workshops such as safe sex unknown L. G. B. T. Q. Rights. Um I can't say I disagree with a lot of that by the way. So what's your view? Uh huh. Oh, I can hear myself but boxes uh box is very far right. Anti abortion is always a tricky question. Yes. I do see where you're coming from terry because I I know this is such a very tricky ground. Um the euthanasia thing has taken a long time for anybody to get near, but we do seem to be getting closer um not just with spain, but a lot of other countries seem to be moving towards this business of the euthanasia. I do think also when it comes to abortion, um you know, I never hear anybody talk much about the conception because when all said and done if people were committed at the time that they conceived, maybe there would be less of a problem when they were.
