7:00 am
hello. this is breakfast, with christian fraser and tina daheley. the prime minister calls for an end to insults and division over brexit. in a major speech this week theresa may will say it's time to get on and make brexit happen. good morning. it's sunday the 15th of january. also ahead: billions of pounds of restoration work is needed on the palace of westminster. today, mps launch an inquiry into the repairs. representatives from 70 countries come together in france to discuss peace in the middle east. focusing on learning in the great outdoors. plans for primary schools which bring children back to nature. in sport: chelsea are seven points clear at the top of the premier league.
7:01 am
their top goal scorer, diego costa wasn't playing but they still beat leicester city 3—0. and louise lear has the weather. good morning. all change on the weather front. mild for most of us, but a lot of cloud and outbreaks of rain around. more details coming up. good morning. first, our main story. prime minister theresa may is to call for an end to the division stirred by last year's eu referendum, when she reveals her most detailed plan yet on how the government will approach its brexit negotiations. in a speech this week to ambassadors, she'll outline a commitment to building a britain more open to the rest of the world. let's talk to our political correspondent tom bateman. what we know about what theresa may will say? lots of speculation this morning in the papers. what we've heard from downing street formally are some words from the speech they have already released, in which she will say this is about having a
7:02 am
vision of a global britain. she wa nts vision of a global britain. she wants more than that, to unify people behind her vision of brexit. she will say there was divisiveness and even in —— insult around the campaign. beyond that, this is the subject for much speculation in the papers this morning. she is likely to suggest britain will remove itself from the formal structures of the eu around free trading markets, the eu around free trading markets, the single market, and the customs union in order to provide control of immigration policy and to forge trade deals elsewhere in the world. will that be enough to silence critics? already this morning we are hearing from people even within our party —— her own party who say this will allow immigration policy to drive economic policy, to have an impact on britain's economic
7:03 am
fortunes. will this finish the debate on tuesday? i wouldn't hold your breath just yet. multi—billion pound plans to renovate the palace of westminster, including both houses of parliament, are to be subject to an inquiry by a committee of mps. it's a very expensive project. the commons treasury select committee will examine whether the repair plans offer value for money, and consider whether both mps and lords will have to move out while the work is being done. here's our political correspondent tom barton. the buildings of parliament are not in a good way. stonework is crumbling, roofs are leaking and something needs to be done to bring the palace of westminster back to life. parliament is part of a world heritage site, recognised as a building of outstanding value to humanity. but fixing it won't be cheap. estimates range from 5.5 to £4 billion and the work will take
7:04 am
at least five years. during that time mps could have to move out of the commons chamber, where to hasn't yet been decided. the treasury committee usually conducts enquiries into big economic issues, like the work of the bank of england or the government's tax policy. but its next enquiry will take a look closer to home. the committee says previous reports have failed to provide enough evidence to assess the proposals and claims that ministers haven't answered their questions about the cost of the work. the palace of westminster may be crucial to public life in britain, but those who are elected to serve there say fixing it must be good value for the taxpayer. about 100 migrants are feared to have drowned off the coast of libya. it's after the boat they were travelling in sank on its way to europe. four people have been rescued.
7:05 am
the search operation has continued in darkness and poor weather conditions. there's a warning that air passengers arriving in britain will face "severe disru ption" after brexit, unless there's an increase in border force staff. the airport operators association says passport checks for eu nationals are likely to become more stringent, leading to an increase in queues and processing times. here's our home affairs correspondent danny shaw. there are record numbers of travellers at britain's airports. in 2015, there were 251 million passengerjourneys. it is thought last year's figure was even higher. but there is concern that growth in air traffic hasn't been matched by an increase in resources for border force, which is responsible for immigration and customs checks. the airport operators association says that has led to longer queues at passport desks and it's concerned delays will worsen. at present eu travellers use a
7:06 am
separate channels or automatic passport gates. they tend to be quicker than for passengers outside of europe. but after brexit if people are all screened in the same way, the associations as overall waiting times will increase. in evidence to the parliamentary enquiry, the associations is introducing tighter controls the eu passport holders would be highly disruptive for passengers, airlines and airports. it says airports would have to spend millions of pounds on extra facilities for immigration checks, so it is asking the government to keep the current system in place for eu passengers travelling to uk airports. the home office says it would be wrong to set out details of how future immigration controls might work in advance of negotiations with the eu. but the department says border force has the capacity to meet passenger demand and maintain security. politicians in the us have reacted angrily after the president—elect
7:07 am
donald trump criticised the respected civil rights campaignerjohn lewis. mr trump tweeted that mr lewis was all talk and no action, after the congressman said he would not attend mr trump's inauguration. john lewis is the last surviving speaker from the 1963 march on washington, which was addressed by martin luther king. a teenager who was snatched from a hospital in florida 18 years ago has been reunited with her biological father. the woman was abducted when she was just eight hours old. she was tracked down after a tipoff. gloria williams, who brought her up as her own daughter, has now been charged with kidnapping. an amazing story. four months after one of its rockets blew up on take—off, the private us firm spacex has successfully launched a spacecraft from a launchpad in california. the craft, which delivered ten
7:08 am
communication satellites into orbit, as you can see launched and landed safely on a platform in the pacific ocean. spacex now has 70 planned missions, including one for nasa to fly cargo to the international space station. it has been pretty cold in europe and there has been a five—month freeze in russia as well. 80 of snow. —— plenty of snow in the chelyabinsk region which would be idealfor skiing but for one problem, it's too flat. so horses are riding to the rescue, pulling snowboarders at speed across the area's forests and lakes. they've tried cars, motorbikes and snowmobiles, but they've found horsepower the best of all. not sure i fancy that. it would be hard in between lifts.
7:09 am
unpredictable speed! there's just a few days until donald trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the united states of america. rehearsals for his inauguration on friday are taking place today. in a moment we'll discuss the ceremony, and what kind of leader he's likely to be, but first, let's take a look at how the president—elect has already been making the headlines. it is my honour. it has been an amazing evening and an amazing two—year period and i love this country. thank you. thank you very much. i very much look forward to dealing with the president in the future and explaining some of the difficulties, some of the highflying assets and some of the really great in that have been achieved. hacking was only one part of it. it also
7:10 am
entailed propaganda, disinformation, they can use. as far as hacking, i think it was rush hour, what i think we also get hacked by other countries and other people. —— i think it was russia. i will say againi think it was russia. i will say again i think it's a disgrace that information would be left out. it is all fake news, it is phoney stuff. it even happened. these papers are alljust a piece of the many, many companies that are being put into trust to be run by my two sons and i hope at the end of eight years i will come back and say, you did a good job! if they did a bad job i will say, you're fayed. good—bye, everybody. —— you're fired. joining us now is scott lucas who's professor of american studies at the university of birmingham. thank you so much forjoining us
7:11 am
this morning. a few days to go until the inauguration. how different you think is inauguration will be compared to ba rack think is inauguration will be compared to barack obama? apart from the obvious a list celebrity count. get ready for the unpredictable president. we know that already from what he says on twitter. we know that from his policy ideas, which come off the top of his head often, and we know it from his family, who aren't even based in washington but new york and for a time trump himself said maybe he didn't need to live in the white house all week. he changed his idea about that, but the rest of the family will stay behind. barack obama rest of the family will stay behind. ba rack obama described rest of the family will stay behind. barack obama described donald trump's style and improvisation. do you think his presidency will follow a similar approach? not if trump. .. i think it is about politicaljazz. it is not like they will sit down and think about a policy on
7:12 am
healthcare, on what they do about the law, he just watches tv or the news and says, what about this? you reported about how he picked a fight with one of our civil rights icon is john lewis yesterday. the question is, once he is president will others around him, because we are talking about a presidency, the secretary of state, the cia, will they contain him and say, is the president, you just don't use social media to conduct domestic foreign policy? does he need public support? on paul says his approval ratings are about 37%, which is where —— way below where barack 37%, which is where —— way below where ba rack obama 37%, which is where —— way below where barack obama was at this point. if he loses the public does he lose congress? that's why i call it the unpredictable presidency. in contrast, with almost any other president, his approach is those who are with me, those who aren't, downed them. that means despite the fa ct downed them. that means despite the fact that he will call for national
7:13 am
unity, farfrom fact that he will call for national unity, far from it. fact that he will call for national unity, farfrom it. he has gotten this far with basically minority support. but i don't think you can do it as president. it is a question of dealing not only with his own congressmen, likejohn of dealing not only with his own congressmen, like john mccain, of dealing not only with his own congressmen, likejohn mccain, and they don't like him and if they think the public will back them over trump they will use that as leveraged. but he won the us election and people voted for him because he promised radical change. how much of that change due think he will deliver? what do you think his first 100 days will be like? will deliver? what do you think his first 100 days will be like ?|j will deliver? what do you think his first 100 days will be like? i think he will try to do things that will be polarising, rather than uniting. i think it will try to repeal obamacare i think it will try to repeal obamaca re without any i think it will try to repeal obamacare without any idea of how to cover the 20 million americans who have been added and who have gotten security by it. i think it will try to ta ke security by it. i think it will try to take america out of the climate change chords, without any idea of what to do, about serious issues like global warning. he will want to meet vladimir putin. to be honest he
7:14 am
adores him and i don't how that plays very well when the us is in a tense relationship with russia. i think the one safe thing he will do is, because americans always like this, says he will reduce taxes. it won't be as large as he says it will be, but that will be the safest policy he can assume. in the rustbelt it is aboutjobs and housing. if he delivers on that, that's what he was elected for. but it is all be resent smoke. the real problems on that mexicans are their jobs, or the chinese are stealing the economy, there have been a lot of technological changes. when you have a change in manufacturing... but he is picking up on the on fenners. he drags home the on fenners. he drags home the on fenners of things. he taps into that frustration. we've had a recession for almost a decade now and that idea of giving something better, those forwards make american great
7:15 am
again. —— four words. that's what americans want to believe but when the reality comes in it is much more difficult. the people in the top positions up early on as. one of the biggest catchphrases at the moment is drain the swamp. if it's a swampy is drain the swamp. if it's a swampy is filling it again. trump goes to his friends, business associated, even family. all well off and all raising it issues about conflict of interest. thank you. like you say, it is so unpredictable. eight years ago1.5 it is so unpredictable. eight years ago 1.5 million people thought it was all hope and change. this week it's a smaller crowd and a lot of people are very nervous. even in terms of protest, a big security challenge. and all next week breakfast'sjon kay will be reporting from the states, in the run up to president—elect trump's inauguration. tomorrow he'll be in milwaukee, wisconsin, the state that was narrowly won by trump in the election. here's louise with a look
7:16 am
at this morning's weather. a very good day for ducks? i'm milder in the west, despite the cloud and the rain, the mild air has arrived. we have lost the bitterly cold story but this weather front is bringing some nuisance rain, not significant, but a lot of clout and hill fog. there has been a bit of sleet and snow and potential for wet snow across east anglia —— cloud. here, you are the exception, it will stay cold in east england and ice as well with roads close to freezing. elsewhere, patchy cloud, drizzly
7:17 am
across south—west wind went and wales but look at the temperatures at 9am, seven or nine degrees so mild start. there will be hill fog and poor visibility. it will be a quiet story across much of scotland and northern ireland, lighter winds, outbreaks of drizzly rain at any outbreaks of drizzly rain at any outbreaks of drizzly rain at any outbreaks of snow will fall with those temperatures. as we go through the afternoon, the frontal system sta rts the afternoon, the frontal system starts to fizzle out a little bit. a lot of cloud stays with us and 8— 10 degrees will be there story. through the night to night, we could see patchy frost and fog across east anglia but elsewhere we keep that cloudy, mild theme and temperatures not falling very far very fast because we will see loads of 7— nine degrees across the country and that system will be an nuisance. it is almost grinding to a halt, weakening
7:18 am
all the time, but underneath the cloud and rain, a dull start to your working week. a dank start. not much brightness with outbreaks of showery rain into the west of scotland but this west— east divide. i will be back later on. for children with a love of the great outdoors, this could make going to school a lot more appealing. plans for four new "nature schools" in england would still see pupils learning traditional subjects, but spending more of their day outside, as david gregory—kumar has been finding out. brandon marsh nature reserve near coventry, home to some excited woodland creatures getting to grips with nature. brandon marsh is also headquarters for wildlife trust and it is the trust that his leading plans for nature schools across the uk. some of these children could be a marked the very first pupils. but
7:19 am
what exactly is a nature school? children at all schools will still need to learn times tables and to read and write. but we are preparing an educational philosophy that will allow teachers to a that learning outside, using the natural setting of the school as much as in the classroom. so they will be outside more? probably. probably coming home a bit dirtier than they would otherwise. at least for planned with two in the midlands, one in warwickshire wildlife trust which has been identified as proper —— possibly going into camphill. they have already got their eyes on a site and the building. it is the camphill school that will be the very first nature school in the uk and its location that might surprise some people. it's definitely an urban area but it is the area that was identified by local authorities asa was identified by local authorities as a local —— strongest need for a new school. we will create new outdoor spaces for learning, a
7:20 am
garden and a lot more wildlife areas, possibly beehives, really exciting. parents visiting the reserve today with very excited. some have already looked into applying for the new school. she loves being outdoors and we would loves being outdoors and we would love that for her, for education, really. the outside is an amazing place to learn and i think you can have so many experiences that are not traditional education that still give you the same knowledge that you would have in a classroom so i think it's brilliant. if all goes well, the uk's burst nature school could openin the uk's burst nature school could open in december 20 18. the andrew marr programme is on bbc one this morning at 9am. andrew, what have you got coming up? no sticks and stones but plenty of words. i have the opposition leader jeremy corbyn in. two papers are reporting that theresa may want to ta ke reporting that theresa may want to take us out of the customs union and
7:21 am
the single european market. that will be interesting. and of course labour's troubles more generally. i have a northern ireland minister james broke and share in and a wonderful piece from timothy spall who was the person —— person playing a holocaust survivor in the film denial. you're watching breakfast from bbc news. time now for a look at the newspapers. carol gould is an american journalist and is here to tell us what's caught her eye. we'll speak to her in a minute. first let's look at the front pages. starting with the sunday telegraph. the headline is may's big gamble on a cleaner brexit. our top story today. theresa may is going to announce that britain could leave the customs union to secure better trade deals according to the sunday telegraph. also a photograph of a
7:22 am
story we have just covered. dell stolen at birth 18 years ago who have been reunited with her mother —— girls. sunday times. let's look at that. donald trump once president putin's summit in reykjavik. observer. the i have a copy of the observer. the i have a copy of the observer. after a week of headlines about the nhs crisis. the sunday express leading on brexit. brexit battle plan for may. they think we will pull out of the single market and the customs union. the mail on sunday is going with an exclusive poll of an a and each winter crisis. a stunning 17% of their voters are tried to save the stricken nhs. good morning. what did you find in the
7:23 am
papers when you had a look through? the first story was this issue of the nhs. no foreign aid. it was interesting because there was a german person who was on dateline london, the bbc show, yesterday that is on every saturday, hosted by gavin esler. excellent programme with foreign journalists. she said that in germany there are eight beds per person so they have surplus of beds but the issue she raised is that in germany, the average citizen pays 60% of their earnings into what they call insurance is so it isn'tjust insurance. its best version of the nhs, their pensions, and all public services so that she said the medical service in germany never gets into the news because it is so well run, there are never problems,
7:24 am
she said that if they are nhs were to offer massage or acupuncture, that would be headline and also the german state pension is infinitely higher than ours. so tired of hearing the nhs crisis story every day. i know there is a crisis but what you never hear it, maybe the media is to blame, but the solution. surely it has to be a cross—party solution because they are so diametrically opposed to what they think it is! the health authority has come up and said it had a very low rating 50 years ago, the have come up with a success story which jeremy hunt has praised. they established a very big gpc surgery in amd. so they could immediately filter out triage people who just need the aid of a gp and free up the bed. —— need the aid of a gp and free up the bed. -- a&e. it need the aid of a gp and free up the bed. —— a&e. it has been a great success. it is not happening in a lot of teaching hospitals and impey a&es around the country. —— info.
7:25 am
it's been a great success. as in the german examples up i am afraid we will need more money piled into it. it is what you take from the german example. if you put more in comedy ta ke example. if you put more in comedy take more out. and then there is the allied and american story about obamacare which in the next 48 hours will be abolished. it is something americans are very aware of. they do not want to see the nhs being destroyed. i mean, there is a lot of trouble in it already. that is move onto the next story you have picked out. the stock that caught my eye is that the american congressmenjohn lewis, those of us old enough to remember, neither of you are organised to remember, john lewis is a legend in the united states. he
7:26 am
was on martin laird could —— he was with martin luther king on that special day when he delivered the i have a dream speech. he was beaten up have a dream speech. he was beaten up in various demonstrations, he was imprisoned for protesting, he is a great hero not just imprisoned for protesting, he is a great hero notjust to black america but white americans. he is a heroic the united states. he is now well into his upper years but... let's face it, in his area of georgia, coca—cola has their headquarters and he has an active constituency. yes, donald trump says he has a lot of crime in his area but it is a problem across many states. john lewis has said that donald trump is not a legitimate president. he has basically said that he should not be an directed this friday. —— inaugurated. the twitter storm from donald trump, as per usual. he has overstepped the line because he has made a personal attack onjohn lewis
7:27 am
and john lewis is an american hero. let's move on quickly. lots of pictures about lord snowdon. a gorgeous feature in several pages. tony snowdon also sort out photography of the poor, the homeless. he once found a man on a bench in brighton who had been doing this for 20 years, sitting looking at the seat and discovered he was deaf. lord snowdon new sign language and was able to communicate with him. -- and was able to communicate with him. —— looking out to the sea. this man said that nobody had talked to him anywhere in ten years. he sought out people who were deprived and starving in the streets. he wasn't just a celebrity photographer and i think that was admirable. good to see you. you are coming back in the
7:28 am
next hour. we're here on the bbc news channel until nine this morning, and coming up in the next hour... this time next week donald trump will be president of the united states. they're rehearsing for his inauguration today, we'll discuss what type of president he's likely to be. we'll visit scarborough, where they're discussing plans to bring the town's seagull population under control. all that to come on the bbc news channel. but this is where we say goodbye to viewers on bbc one. bye for now. hello, this is breakfast, with christian fraser and tina daheley. coming up before 8am, louise will have the weather for you. but first, a summary of this morning's main news. theresa may is to call for an end to the "insults" and "division" provoked by last year's eu referendum. the prime minster will make the comments during a major speech on tuesday, in which she'll offer her most detailed insight yet into how the government will approach negotiations over britain's withdrawal from the eu. plans for a multi—billion pound restoration of the palace
7:29 am
of westminster, including both houses of parliament, are to be scrutinised by mps. the inquiry by the commons treasury committee will look at whether the repairs offer value for money. it'll also consider whether mps and lords will have to move out while the work is undertaken. a major international conference to try to kick—start the middle east peace process is being held in paris. delegates from 70 nations, including britain, are expected to reaffirm support for a two—state solution to the decades—old conflict. palestinians have welcomed the meeting, but israel, which is not attending, says the conference is loaded against it. air passengers arriving in britain will face severe disruption after brexit, unless there's an increase in borderforce staff, according to the airport operators association. the body which represents more than 50 british airports warns passport checks for eu nationals are likely to become more stringent, leading to bigger queues. the home office says the border force has the capacity to meet demand.
7:30 am
four months after one of its rockets blew up on take—off, the private us firm spacex has successfully launched a spacecraft from a launchpad in california. the craft, which delivered ten communication satellites into orbit, landed safely on a platform in the pacific ocean. spacex now has 70 planned missions, including one for nasa to fly cargo to the international space station. eight giant panda cubs have been posing for chinese new year greetings in the szechwan province in the south—west of the country. the eight cubs, including three pairs of twins, were all born last year. they climbed trees and played with toys in the presence of their keepers. this chinese new year, which starts at the end of january, is the year of the rooster.
7:31 am
iam not i am not sure i can link on from that. but there might be a few kisses for andy carroll! we had olivier giroud with the scorpion kick as well last week. such a hard fully. fantastic. but it does mean west ham won that game against crystal palace 3—0 when they didn't have dimitri pyatt playing for them. andy carroll added to the collection as west ham beat crystal palace 3—0. joey barton scored on his return to the premier league and to burnley, while both tottenham and arsenal put four goals past their opponents. but it is chelsea who are top of the table with a seven point lead despite the absence of their top scorer, diego costa. joe lynskey reports. no costa, no problem. without their star player, chelsea showed their team's star quality. at the home of the champions, this was a test of their own title
7:32 am
credentials and their inspiration came from an unlikely source. the first of two goals from their full—back marcus alonzo sent them on their way. and should fortune tempt costa away, plenty of attacking opportunities remained. on a night where some thought their season would unravel, chelsea proved their resolve. their lead at the top is now seven points over tottenham. their main man is a very different place. harry kane ended the week he became a parent with a hat—trick against west brom. a match ball that'll make a nice souvenir for someone. the little girl is great. a good missus, she's been letting me sleep. i have had a busy week, but one i have enjoyed and obviously i enjoyed today as well. there were four goals for arsenal. their comfortable route
7:33 am
to victory makes things very uncomfortable at swansea. and new boss paul clement needs some answers fast. perhaps he should look to marco silva for inspiration. hull city's latest appointment marked his first league match in charge with victory against bournemouth. the tigers revitalised, had their first win since november. burnley have been surprising people all season, not least by bringing joey barton back to the club. five minutes into his return to action, he's back to making headlines on the pitch. this is fast becoming a season known for its breathtaking goals, after giroud and mkhitaryan's scorpion kicks, west ham added a third take on stu ntman football. that is tremendous! on a weekend of speculation, there is still plenty of star quality left in this division. elsewhere, watford and middlesbrough drew 0—0, but the match started with a minute's applause for watford's former manager graham taylor, who died this week aged 72. taylor, who also managed england,
7:34 am
took watford from the fourth division to a second—placed finish in the top flight in just five seasons. he also guided the club to the only fa cup final of their history. tributes were paid to graham taylor at several grounds across the country. today's games in the premier league sees the manchester clubs take on the two teams from merseyside. everton host manchester city in the early kick off while fourth placed liverpool face manchester united at old trafford. a win would take liverpool to second place in the table but with manchester united unbeaten in 15 games, jose mourinho is in confident mood. we don't have just the good performances, we have also the happiness of the good results. we play at home, not away, so that changes a little bit, but in the end it's just one more big match and let's enjoy the match. of course both teams are actually,
7:35 am
especially now in the long—term, in a good run, in good shape. maybe united has less problems with injuries or whatever, but that doesn't mean anything. we can lose against each team, but we can win against each team and that's the important thing. boxing now, and james degale has been taken to hospital as a precaution after he retained his ibf world super middleweight title overnight in new york, but only after a controversial draw with fellow world champion badou jack. degale began the fight strongly, knocking jack down in the first round. but jack came back, causing the londoner a lot of problems, and degale was knocked down himself in the final round. and after taking a long time, thejudges decided by a majority decision that it was a draw. both men go home with their respective world title belts. wasps have managed to keep alive their hopes of reaching the quarter—finals of rugby union's european champions cup but they left it late before beating toulouse 17—14.
7:36 am
elliott daly scored wasps's first try before toulouse were awarded a penalty try. the french side were leading until the final 58 seconds of the game, when dan robson forced his way across the line. wasps are second in pool two with one group game left. leicester tigers‘ can't reach the knockout stages, after they were beaten 34—3 away at racing 92. this was one of four tries for racing, who are last year's runners up. elsewhere, glasgow suffered a narrow defeat to munster, denting their hopes of progressing in the competition, and northampton, who already knew they couldn't reach the knock out stages, beat castre 28—21. lisa ashton has become bdo world darts champion for the third time after a comfortable win in the women's final at lakeside. ashton beat the australian corrinne hammond by 3—0 sets to add to the world titles she won in 2014 and 2015. the men's final takes
7:37 am
place to today. the english number one seed glenn durrant, who saw off jamie hughes last night, will play danny noppert of the netherlands. the masters snooker gets underway today at alexandra palace in london. favourite to win is six—time champion ronnie o'sullivan. last year he thrashed barry hawkins in the final ten frames to one. stephen hendry has also won the masters six times so how much does o'sullivan want a record seventh? it would be great to get another masters, but notjust because it's the seventh but because it's the masters. i'm not thinking i'd love to break the record, i just want to win another masters. i want to win another worlds, a welsh, another china open. just want to win more tournaments. and you can watch the masters live on the bbc. the action gets underway this afternoon with coverage on bbc 2. there are also regular updates live on radio 5 live. england's cricketers face india this morning to start their one—day international series. it was a disappointing test series.
7:38 am
england lost 4—0. captain eoin morgan says he's expecting these matches to be a lot closer. this group of players have never played a one—day series here, which obviously means we are very optimistic about things. having had a little bit of success at the t20 world cup, we fell a bit short last year, having no experience and playing in india, it was a great confidence booster for us and one we can draw on throughout the series. the first of the one—day international starting in about 20 minutes. failing care homes could be taken into public ownership under a future labour government, jeremy corbyn has said. the department of health says it's working with home care providers which are struggling in the current market. but in a speech yesterday, the opposition leader warned that the social care system in england was at "serious risk of breakdown" because of growing demand and a lack of investment. so we warned the government, if you
7:39 am
don't put money into social care now the system is at serious risk of breakdown. the fifth annual report of the care quality commission found one in five nursing homes did not have enough staff on duty to ensure people received good safe care. frankly, that is outrageous! one in five! sewer labour government will give social care the social funding it needs and give a firm commitment to ta ke it needs and give a firm commitment to take daily public care homes into private care to maintain the protection people need. joining us now is ryan goodwin, the owner of a care home in lancashire. lots of people have been talking about care homes but you know what it is like to run on. you own a care home? i do, yes. can you give us an insight into what it is like running a care home day—to—day? insight into what it is like running a care home day-to-day? running a
7:40 am
ca re a care home day-to-day? running a care home today is a privilege and honour, to look after the older members of our community, the people we represent, and myjob is very rewarding, but it is also very pressurised today because we are underan pressurised today because we are under an immense amount of strain. i think because we are expected to do more for people, to achieve a higher quality, better alp outcome for the ladies and gentlemen and at the same time we are doing this against a back drop of decreasing... ever decreasing funding from the government. for people who don't understand, where does that funding comes from? the health and social ca re comes from? the health and social care funding comes from the local council. so the council... your
7:41 am
local authority, if you become ill, the local authority in which you live is to take responsibility for that care if you are eligible to be funded by the council. i suppose that depends on the condition? it depends on... it is means tested. it depends on... it is means tested. it depends on... it is means tested. it depends on your ability to pay, if you don't have a certain amount of money or assets to equal that amount of money then it triggers payment by the council. obviously you are dealing with people who have a complex set of needs, people with alzheimer's, etc, dementia. but because of the pressure on beds and care, are you seeing because of the pressure on beds and care, are you seeing people come back to you in care homes who might or should be in hospital? the idea of someone being in hospital has changed. we don't look at someone... we wouldn't look at someone now and
7:42 am
save them being in hospital is a good outcome, because people generally want to be in a home environment. they wonder if they are coming back weaker than they should because there is pressure to get them out? no. people are discharge from hospital when it is safe. the problem is now we are given advice, and quite rightly, to avoid hospital admissions. but sometimes someone is at the end of their life and it is seen, less disturbed, so the idea that they are taken into hospice. but the idea is that someone is cared forfor but the idea is that someone is cared for for the whole of life. finally, what do you think about jeremy corbyn's speech yesterday, passionate speech, and this idea to nationalise care homes?” passionate speech, and this idea to nationalise care homes? i think it is very commendable that he thinks
7:43 am
ca re is very commendable that he thinks care homes should be kept going at all care homes should be kept going at a ll costs. care homes should be kept going at all costs. because moving people can be catastrophic on the well—being. at my own feeling is it's a little bit like saying please mend the harm because the brakes to work. if we know the funding isn't in place, and perhaps care homes could fail, heaven forbid that should happen, then perhaps we should put the money in their rather than accepting that there is a possibility that failure will become possible. thank you very much. here's louise lear with a look at this morning's weather. good morning everybody. in brighton this weather forecast is the dress, i'm afraid, it's a pretty grey. gloomy affair. it is milder than it has been as the mild is pushing in behind the frontal system. but we
7:44 am
are getting clouded not only across the uk that out in the atlantic, a series of weather fronts set to push in from the atlantic. not bringing much in the way of rain. it is pathetic out there at the moment. there is it raining pushing its way steadily eastwards. for a time, it is still pretty cold across the east anglia, you are the exception, u nfortu nately. we anglia, you are the exception, unfortunately. we might see some wet snow in that. we're more concerned about ice. temperatures are struggling. take care on untreated roads. a lot of cloud, drizzly rain further west. once it clears and we start to see an odd spit or spot of drizzle out to the west of wales as well. in terms of scotland and northern ireland, across northern ireland you are in the mild air with 10 degrees. drizzly conditions on west facing coats. some hill fog as well. in scotland, lighterwinds west facing coats. some hill fog as well. in scotland, lighter winds in comparison to the last few days and
7:45 am
certainly it will be a quite a story here. 8— 10 degrees out of the west. still pretty chilly though. in east anglia, three degrees is not going to feel very pleasant. overnight, not in the way of change in the story. the west divide continues. the weather front continues to bring cloud and rain. look at the temperatures, not falling very far with loads of nine degrees. it could be chilly with early—morning frost and it could be some patchy frog. elsewhere, elsewhere east of —— elsewhere than east of england, some news and drivel. —— useless drizzle. double—digit out to the west. five degrees likely. a struggling, chilly day again in east anglia. we're back with the headlines at eight o'clock. first, let's get all the latest technology news with spencer kelly and the team — here's click.
7:46 am
driving stateside can be a liberating experience. wide roads, big trucks, massive cars, but at a desert bottleneck like las vegas, it can be ever so slightly frustrating. beep, beep! come on. but today i'm driving an audi with a little more brainpower under the hood, sorry, bonnet. on my dashboard here i have information about the current speed
7:47 am
on it, and it also is telling me there is a red light that will turn green in about 30 seconds up ahead. three, two, one. here we go. the car is connecting to las vegas‘s traffic management center over ag. it reports its position and the centre tells them how long until the next light turns green. indicate left, and the control informs me about the left filter light instead. and round we go. one of the advantages, says audi, is that it's a bit of a stress and tension relief as you know you have some time before the light goes green so there's no point getting all impatient. at the moment, this is only
7:48 am
available in certain models of car, and only in las vegas, because this city has just one traffic management centre that handles all of the lights. some cities have more than 100 different authorities in charge of their signals. so, one obvious use for this in the future is to feed into an autonomous driving system. if the car knows when the lights are going to go green in front of it, then it can better drive itself. if it has some kind of backup data signal from the traffic management system then it should get it right more. which is a good thing. it'sjudging that i'm not going to make these lights. oh, and it's right. the car was right and i was wrong.
7:49 am
sorry about that! now, i do not know much about the car industry, but what i do know is getting into it when you're a new player is really tough, and complex, and expensive. faraday future is a company that heard all of those warnings and thought, eh, let's try anyway. how is that going for them then? dave lee investigates. faraday future, a new car company that promises to beat tesla at its own game. last year at ces they showed us a scale model of a concept car they had no real intention of making. this year they promised something more, well, real. introducing the ff91. they're pretty proud of it, they say it can do zero to 60 quicker than a bentley or a ferrari, and of course, a tesla model s. it can even park itself. just press a button and... record rip it seems like it's being a little bit lazy tonight. i'm being cruel. it can park on its own. i saw that for myself. slightly wide at the minute.
7:50 am
this is a three—point turn. one of the reasons we do that is because we want to make sure all of the sensors in the car, of which there are many, can get a full view of the empty spot to verify there is no one there. look at that. spot on. straight. i'm impressed with that. it is all well and good, but it will be some time before you can actually do this yourself. each and every car park will need to be approved by faraday future before the feature will work. and it will rely on data on the system and future cars so it is less chicken and egg and more chicken and $150,000 car that isn't even on the market yet. speaking of which, faraday future have promised it will be ready by 2018. there is a lot of potential and promises but it is hard for them to deliver. the factory they need to build this thing for example, they showed a video of it and it isjust a pile of dirt
7:51 am
at the moment. ah yes, the factory. to build its car, they have planned a huge plant in the nevada desert planning to become at least partly operational to make the cars next year. there are reports the factory is on hold because they are running out of money. hello? it looks ready for construction but there is no equipment, no materials. and if they want this place ready by 2018, it doesn't look like they are making much progress. we are resource—limited at sometimes. things like this need to take priority at this point in time. part of the report said finances were hit. construction of the factory has stopped for some point and it still looks like it is stopped. it will start soon. was it because of financial restrictions? it is a matter of keeping the cash flow balance between the projects we are trying to do.
7:52 am
not too encouraging. but the good news is if they ever release a car it will blow your socks off. all right. heads back. hold on. let's go! oh my god! that is so quick. oh my god! we have now beaten the fastest production vehicle in the world. and we are just getting started. well... well it is not very useful on a school run, is it, really? hello, and welcome to the week in tech. it was the week facebook announced it would start trialling ads in the middle of videos, and norway became the first country in the world to turn off its analogue radio signals. it was also the week the us military released footage of a test in california where it launched a swarm of 103 mini drones into the sky from fighterjets. the unmanned aerial vehicles were deployed to operate autonomously. it's thought the system could potentially be used to carry out surveillance operations in the future.
7:53 am
hello, i'm charles martinet and i'm the voice of... it's a me, mario! woo—hoo! and luigi too! haw—haw! and wario! and baby luigi! and baby mario! let's go! ya—hoo! and that was charles martinet, the voice of mario, nintendo's most famous character. and he's helping us to introduce ninty‘s brand—new games console. it's a little bit different as you might expect and marc's been trying it out. nintendo switch is an unusual games console because it does a couple of different things. firstly it's a portable machine. it's got this tablet like touchscreen with a 720p resolution, it can be played out and about on the move and then when it docks in this little station here, like mario after he has chowed down
7:54 am
on those power—boosting mushrooms, it supercharges the machine graphics capabilities up to 1080p full hd and can be played using a normal television becoming a home console. the controllers, which nintendo has dubbed joycons, can slide off the side of the portable unit and they can be configured in a couple of different ways. the individualjoycon parts can be used for multiplayer and when it's docked, the player can use a separate controller or plug them into a battery pack, turning them into this beast. now, thejoycons have got a number of different motor control features that can be demonstrated in this mini game here. it's called quickdraw and weirdly what it does is it pulls the player away from the screen and towards one another. so to that end i have a cowboy opponent here and we're
7:55 am
going to have a shootout. so let's load our weapons, get ready. this is where you get your best clint eastwood on. and i live to fight another day! but what that ably shows is that the designers are thinking differently about the kind of games that can be played using this device. as far as games are concerned, in the works is a new title for the portly italian plumber, the real—world set super mario odyssey and the legend of zelda: breath of the wild. nintendo's last console, the wii u, had a bunch of issues from day one. a lot of gamers thought it was additional controller for their already wii console, where in fact it was a brand—new console. with the switch they have the same issue again but this time they have to nail down the third—party support and getting more of the core gamer back on board with their product. perhaps the biggest hurdle for the switch is its price. at £279, the switch might have a tough time against its rivals from microsoft and sony. we'll find out when it's released on march the third. bbc click, here we go!
7:56 am
i've been out of bed for precisely the length of that report. about time i turn in for the night but oh, no, i've forgotten to make the bed. fortunately i've got a smart duvet, which means that from anywhere in the world i can click the app and the thing makes itself. it's got an inflatable sheet inside and the idea is you programme it to do this at any time you want on any day you want. yes, it is a bit noisy but the idea is you're not meant to be here when it does it. it might scare the cat mind you. but that's not the end of the story. if you're a snorer or you sleep with a snorer then pay attention because tonight i am sleeping on nora, which is an anti—snoring device you put under your pillow.
7:57 am
if this microphone detects the sound of snoring during the night, it will activate this silent fan which inflates nora, moving the pillow and your head just enough to reactivate your throat muscles, open your airways and stop you from snoring. you can track how many times it's been activated during the night on the app if you want, or you canjust have a good night's sleep, safe in the knowledge that whoever else is in the room with you is also getting a good night's sleep. night night. hello this is breakfast, with christian fraser and tina daheley. the prime minister calls for an end to insults and division over brexit. in a major speech this week theresa may is expected to say its time to get on and make brexit happen. to say it's time to get on and make brexit happen. good morning, it's sunday the 15th of january.
