5:47 am
may's elevation to become prime minister. quite what does she mean? we got it yesterday. there is no doubt we are leaving their single market. immigration trumps anything else, really, in terms of the politics of this. and you know what, it would suggest we are not going to have a divorce, because britain doesn't want to hold on to the family silver of the single market. for a lot of businesses i think that means we can quickly get on to looking at what the transitional arrangements look like, with what we have now and what it will look like in future. lots of questions but she has set out a framework. there are so has set out a framework. there are so many angles to this. when it comes to the city of london and rights and so on, some banks have said, that is it, we are moving people to europe, we have to. they we re people to europe, we have to. they
5:48 am
were thinking of it anyway. will we see a big shift? february will be an interesting month. lots of the banks will be asked questions, what is your brexit plan? lots of organisations will be looking to rerisk from the politics. the suggestion is what theresa may have set out, the high brexit, we won't be part of the single market —— derisk. —— theresa may i think we will see a little bit of what i am calling rewiring. what i am not picking up is thousands ofjobs leaving the uk because people still wa nt leaving the uk because people still want to live in the uk. what about theissue want to live in the uk. what about the issue of britons living in the eu and eu citizens living here. there are no details, because she wa nts there are no details, because she wants ... what
5:49 am
there are no details, because she wants what is the word? reciprocity. that is the one. britons living should be able to stay there. the word i keep hearing at the moment is the idea of work permits. yeah. so, basically, if you have a job, if you have the offer of ajob, and it is a key have a job, if you have the offer of a job, and it is a key skill, yet to be defined, you will be able to be here. if it is not a key skill and you don't have an employer sponsor, you don't have an employer sponsor, you may not be able to be here. the question of uk citizens living in the eu is still to be resolved. and one of the big questions is trade, which is what president xi jinping was talking about — globalisation is quite ironic, isn't it, the president of china is the keynote speech at davos talking about the benefits of globalisation, taking a sideswipe at the world's biggest economy, the new leader of that economy. it is bizarre, isn't it? the capitalist elite in thrall to
5:50 am
the secretary general of the chinese communist party. well, 2017 starts pretty much how 2017 ended. you know, i am starting to hear about some interesting stuff for example, you know, davos is — what we see is the footlights stuff, what takes place in private are lots of investors having infrastructure, —— infrastructure conversations. china might make a major investment in, wait for it, mexico. wonder why they do that right now? the geopolitics, where money is flowing, in advance of donald trump, and trump is nowhere near davos, not wanting to be seen playing with the global elite, and china is stepping in in every sense. yes, and president xi jinping is going to some un
5:51 am
organisations, there are many in geneva, donald trump saying he regards the un as a club. so, xi jinping setting up china as a possible alternative to the american leadership. stepping in with a chinese climate change deal. promising that will go ahead. who would have thought that? in the meantime, 0bama would have thought that? in the meantime, obama is very busy in his last few days in office. chelsea manning to be released early as 0bama massively reduces her 35 year sentence. this is fascinating. on one level, this is what presidents do. it is like the resignation honours prime ministers give in the uk. there is also lots of controversy about whether this is good or bad. what i picked up this morning is that julian assange under wikileaks sat in the ecuadorian
5:52 am
embassy in london unable to leave for the last five years or so, last yearsaid, if for the last five years or so, last year said, if chelsea manning was to be released, he would go back to the united states to face justice. that was united states to face justice. that was before donald trump became the president elect. let's see whether or not the real intent behind what 0bama or not the real intent behind what obama did was to see ifjulian assange will go and face justice in america. fascinating. anthony joshua, the british world boxing ibf champion. a very gentle man and a very violent sport. around 19 hours ago there was a picture of himself, which we haven't shown, it is his copyright, which he has put on twitter, playing in a mosque in the middle east. the abuse he has got online is incredible. it is vital. i use twitter. you guys use twitter. loads of viewers use twitter but
5:53 am
this is showing how the internet becomes a sewer —— it is vile. there is no other word for it. anthony joshua, sporting hero to millions, and then these idiots pop out of the woodwork, condemning somebody... he isn't saying he is a muslim. he isn't saying he is a muslim. he isn't saying he endorses the koran or christianity. he is saying, i isn't saying he endorses the koran or christianity. he is saying, lam here with another human being experiencing life to the full. not interested in these people. he said, besides luck, hard work and talent, prayer is a solid foundation. it was nice tojoin my prayer is a solid foundation. it was nice to join my brother as prayer is a solid foundation. it was nice tojoin my brother as he led afternoon prayer. that is what he had written. so, your boys, professors of cambridge university? they are on their way, at mission at six. what a cracking job.|j they are on their way, at mission at six. what a cracking job. i want the job. we all want the job! i am dying
