9:00 pm
studio: president trump hat the white house has pulled america out of the paris climate agreement. he said that the historic 2015 accord was a bad dealfor the united states, it had left other countries off too easily and punish america too much. he pointed to moments in the accord. he said it allowed india to carry on building coal plarngts china to carry on doing that, but it finished american workers, his only job was to protect american workers. he said he was representing the citizens of pittsburgh and not paris. his main argument for pulling america out of the deal was that america out of the deal was that america had a bad economic dealfrom the paris accord and other countries had been let off too lightly. i'm
9:01 pm
joined by nathan holman, one of the architects of the paris accord and the obama administration, you watched that, what did you make of it? trump made a case about fairness and in that sense i thought it was relative to the facts of what the paris agreement actually is. i thought it was borderline delusional and apocalyptic. those are strong words, back them up. he sketched a vision of what the paris accord is asa kind vision of what the paris accord is as a kind of international imposition of the united states put it was negotiated as something the united states could argue we wanted to do on our own terms. the president fundamentally does not agree with those negotiation terms? one thing interesting about his
9:02 pm
vision and he is conflating two important things about paris, one of the structure of the international agreement and wonders will we propose to country. for him they are one and the same and he is certainly not happy with the targets put forth, those targets are negotiable within our country, that is not paris fault. he said that the united states are being hurt by the paris accords and said compliance will cut production and paper industries, iron and steel and coal.|j production and paper industries, iron and steel and coal. i don't know the study he was quoting and i think it is important when we look at the job question, is this a jobs question that those industries are taking transition sokol is a great example there. there are something like 3 millionjobs supported by
9:03 pm
clean energy. if we are looking at the us economy than it is very important what an agreement like paris would look like for the economy as a whole and not just on jobs but on an important economic factors, how many premature deaths are we avoiding by reducing air pollution and how much hardship we are avoiding by climate change? thank you nathan. one of the architects who drew up this accord. who by the way during that speech put out a statement saying the nations staying in will reap the jobs and he believes america should be at the front of the pack. this of course is an be at the front of the pack. this of course is an announcement be at the front of the pack. this of course is an announcement that will come as a disappointment to those, it is something that president trump supporters wanted him to do. there will be global reactions, for
9:04 pm
american leadership in the world it isa american leadership in the world it is a moment where america's pulling back from global leadership on the critical issue of climate change, other countries... that go back to london to outside source. this is outside source. donald trump has just announced the us is this is outside source. donald trump hasjust announced the us is pulling out of the paris climate agreement. as of today the united states will cease all implementation of the non—binding paris accord and the draconian financial and economic burdens, that this agreement opposes in our country. donald trump made that announcement in the rose garden of the white house about 20 minutes ago, we will bring your reaction from washington and brussels. plus
9:05 pm
we talk about what this means for the future of climate change, later in the show we cross to rucksack the south—west england. in the show we cross to rucksack the south-west england. hello i am in cornwall which is the most south westerly point of the uk and people who voted for brexit, i am going to talk to them about how their opinions on that are informing their choices on the general election next month. also breaking news coming in from the philippines, a tourist resort in melilla is on lockdown following explosions and gunshots inside a hotel —— manila. that is all coming up on this edition of outside source, don't forget you can find us using the hashtag bbc os. you are very welcome to outside
9:06 pm
source and restore the programme with the breaking news that within the past hour donald trump has announced the us will withdraw from the paris climate agreement, he said america can get a better deal. the paris climate accord is the latest example of washington entering an agreement which disadvantages the united states. this is to the exclusive benefit of other countries leaving american workers who i love and taxpayers to absorb the cost in terms of lost jobs, lower and taxpayers to absorb the cost in terms of lostjobs, lower wages, shuttered factories and vastly diminished economic production. thus as of today the united states will cease all implementation of the
9:07 pm
non—binding paris accord, and the draconian financial and economic burdens that the agreement opposes in our country. so we have of course been watching this, barbara was there, good to have you with us, i suppose that's this was the expected announcement, watts was —— what was the reaction? and it was a friendly audience, people erupted into applause several times but we were told he had ben hearing advice from all sides, those who wanted to pull out and those who didn't, he had been weighing up the arguments but we had one line coming from this speech, the accord which was a punishment, he spoke in
9:08 pm
nationalistic terms of how it was a violation of american sovereignty. how it disadvantages america at the expense of other countries. he even said the lobbyists wanted to join this because they knew that they would gain whilst the us would be weakened economically. he used very strong language i thought. he said he would like to get back into the accord if he can negotiate better terms or negotiate a better one altogether, that is something the members of the accord would have to agree to yell it seems unlikely given the way they have been rallying around it in the last couple of weeks. almost a stump speech barbara about him being elected by people in pittsburgh and paris but what about this, if the us leaves, the diplomatic fallout, most
9:09 pm
of the countries will de beer pushback on a wider level? they will continue to try to convince the us otherwise and we have seen today and will see it tomorrow as well. the chinese pm will attend a meeting at the eu in which there will be a joint statement committing themselves to the document and putting together an alliance in making sure that it gets implemented in clean energy projects so they have sent statement saying there we re have sent statement saying there were continued us doesn't. if the us doesn't dissolve the nutters in the case you do have the united states which is the largest economy in the world, the second largest emitter of greenhouse gases not being part of this agreement means it will weaken the agreement sure. having said that there is opposition forming already in the united states at the level of
9:10 pm
cities and in the level of the states. they have also signalled that they will do that. stay with us because i want to bring a quote that is coming from the former president, the predecessor who put it in place, barack obama, he says i believe the united states should be at the front of the pack. but also he says... he is confident the states it businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way. also... interesting, that statement was almost coming out as donald trump the speaker but i suppose the thing is, if it were to be picked, it'll ta ke yea rs is, if it were to be picked, it'll take years as we were from jean—claude junker, 2020 would take years as we were from jean—claudejunker, 2020 would be the earliest time which would be
9:11 pm
another election year? yes it is a long process to withdraw and mr chan said that from the beginning, from this moment the united states would not sign underwritten in particular who said that they would stop any contributions to files that have an agreed colour green funds to help developing countries. he betrayed us world in conspiratorially turned saying they were out for americans and they shouldn't suffer for the people not paying as much. it takes a period of years before it is formalised than another year before it is... there might be another president in the white house who might reverse course again and i think those who are taking active position saying we'll continue with the climate policies, they are
9:12 pm
hoping to complete the momentum going up until that point spurt the audience the speech was aimed at which was mr trump's constituency, the blue—collar working class who believes this climate accord is killing jobs, they will very much applaud this move and the audiences here are republicans who do feel like it puts america as an economic disadvantage and he will not get any pushback from that quarter.|j disadvantage and he will not get any pushback from that quarter. i was wondering the clapping and applause, he was it may be doing that the tv explained it was a friendly audience. donald trump has a decision to abandon the paris accord, shocked and angered many world leaders, this was ali hinted, ...the world leaders, this was ali hinted, the chinese premier confirming his country will stick with the deal. translation: china will
9:13 pm
continue to implement promises made to move towards the 2030 goal step—by—step, steadfastly. but of course we also hope to do this in with others. that is one voice coming in and this week angela merkel said germany will have to look after itself and it cannot rely on the united states and the uk because of mr trump and brexit. i also want to bring up a tweet. donald tusk has written, please don't change and then in brackets, the political climate for the worst. the united states has voiced its concerns. it's important other governments stay the course, this is essential for our collective future and it's important that american society is like all other societies
9:14 pm
and the business communities that mobilise as a central piece indeed the future... stephen clegg francis has hinted at his desire when it comes to the agreement. he handed mr trumpa comes to the agreement. he handed mr trump a signed copy of his work chronicling the need to fight climate change during the president's visit to the vatican. mr trump says he would read them. so whether he did or not we can't know. the president of the european commission has said that, take a listen to this. the americans cannot sleep the climate protection agreement, mrtrump sleep the climate protection agreement, mr trump believes that because he doesn't get close enough to the dos is to fully understand them. it would take three years after the agreement to leave the
9:15 pm
agreement so this notion that i am trump, i agreement so this notion that i am trump, lam agreement so this notion that i am trump, i am america and america will get out of it won't happen. the battle and the timing of what could 01’ battle and the timing of what could or could not happen, let's speak with our european editor in brussels now, festival i know we were bringing some voices before the announcement was made and he has gone ahead and pulled out of the paris accord so what is this move european leaders? we have heard immediately from the european commissionerfor energy immediately from the european commissioner for energy and climate and he has said that the e deeply regretted an ally as he said, turning his back, the european leaders sat with president trump last week air in brussels and european leaders met with him at the
9:16 pm
g7 in italy and they urged him not to leave the paris accord. it's makes good sense for the united states to invest in renewable energy, you can make america a great and they were hoping he would stay in the paris accord, but of course he hasn't. europe will regret that that there will be a tensing of relations between these two allies, the european union and the united states. you're pointing at a tweet earlier on from the european council presidents donald tusk uses police make the climate any worse. and those meetings, as we heard president trump speaking this afternoon, he made a jive to limit jive at european partners when
9:17 pm
saying the powers who are asking him to stay, were the ones who weren't pulling their weight in terms of trade and military spending and were being unfairto trade and military spending and were being unfair to its united states. the european union will feel that and leaders meet in brussels and will issue a joint statement saying they will continue with the accord and will continue to fight to stop global warming. we should not rush just to say there is a break between the us and the eu because there are still a lot more in common that the eu has in common with china. this is coming in such an interesting time, britain and the e, can they work together post brexit in the same way, can china may be become the leaders now? it's ironic if you see
9:18 pm
china accepted the court at the time, president obama was a real leading figure, they really helped to get the us on board, the us is the second biggest carbon emitter in the second biggest carbon emitter in the world, china is number one so the world, china is number one so the fact those two power signed up to the accord was a big coup at the time. they are happy when they can agree on something at the moment they can agree on climate change, they can agree on climate change, the leadership in china knows it is in its interest, the people are getting angry and it has seen the business advantages investing in renewable energy. so with the european union they will fight on climate change and they will fight for free trade as well, both points in which there are now points of
9:19 pm
tension between the european union and the united states but again as i say, we really should not see all of these in black and white terms, this does not mean the relationship between the european union and the united states is broken and then have china as a best buddy, these are all shades of grey rather than black and white. thank you. stay with us, an outside source still to come. we will speak to the seychelles ambassador on the decision of donald trump to pull the us out of the paris climate accord. this is outside source live. our top story. donald trump has announced the united states will pull out of the united states will pull out of the paris climate agreements, he says it is the latest example of washington tenting agreement that benefited others and he would be re—entering the accord on terms fairer to the united states. let's look at the stories in the language
9:20 pm
services are looking at. the gunman have stormed a hotel in manila and witnesses have said the gunmen have been wearing masks and shooting at guests been wearing masks and shooting at gu ests close been wearing masks and shooting at guests close to manila airport. the army said police were controlled, the eis said their militants caused the eis said their militants caused the attack was so far no casualty numbers —— isis. pakistan has denied allegations that it was involved in the car bomb in kaboul is baseless. the explosion killed around 90 people and injured 350 others. let's return to the story and get more reaction now, further afield and joining me from new york is the seychelles ambassador to the united nations, thank you very much for coming on ambassador, do you want to describe your reaction to this and
9:21 pm
putting it into the context of the seychelles? thank you for having me. as hopefully everybody knows by now, small islands, the small island developing states like ours are the least responsible for climate change but we are the ones who suffer the most from it. some of our small islands in the pacific and indian ocean could actually disappear off the face of the earth. we are very dismayed. we would have liked the us to stay in the paris agreement, we are dismayed but from our perspective, especially from the involvement in the climate negotiations it is not as catastrophic as other people seem to be thinking it to because the world has been anticipating this. whilst we have all wanted the us to stay in the paris agreement, we have been anticipating this and we have seen moves anticipating this and we have seen m oves now anticipating this and we have seen moves now for climate leadership to moves now for climate leadership to
9:22 pm
move from china and the us to what looks like a coalition between the european union and asia. for example chancellor merkel this week has hosted the prime minister of india and is now hosting the prime minister of china and china as we know is currently the biggest emitter. there will be a statement tomorrow but ambassador put it in very stark words for our viewers, if nothing more is done on climate change, what would happen to your country? well, those small islands that do not disappear physically, that do not disappear physically, thatis that do not disappear physically, that is they slipped underwater, will become economically unviable and will become failed states because even the islands which will stay above water, the economy is based mainly on tourism, marine —based tourism and fisheries and we have been learning from scientists what climate change and global
9:23 pm
warming will do to the oceans, it would story fisheries and they will move to cold waters. it will erode ages, we are seeing that in the seychelles and our number one industry is tourism. the coral reefs, all of this is severely affected. which means all of us who are remaining in the paris agreement and that of course is 194 out of 195 there have to step up our game and see amongst ourselves how can we make upfor see amongst ourselves how can we make up for the gap, at least in the short term because according to the latest science, the us's absence will not have an effect in the short term if china and india continue to surpass their pledges which latest indications do show. now it might be that he renegotiate, this is what is asking for and that he goes ahead with a better deal, do you hold out much hope for that happening? well
9:24 pm
amongst us there is still a jury out. we are not sure what he means by renegotiating. we're not sure what he will ask for and we're not sure, depending on what he asks for what effect might have on other countries in the paris agreement. one of the fears has been that if the us leaves, will others leave but we do not see indications of that yet. the positive spirit that came out of paris seems to be holding and in fact it might have had a counter effect in the us withdrawal in that it's made us in the paris agreement more determined to make this work but should they stay take four years for them to withdraw and then they start making demands others cannot abide by. i understand ambassador. thank you. sticklers for ross atkins from cornwall.
9:25 pm
yesterday we were talking about clusters of thunderstorms on the coast of mexico developing into something sinister, that has happened and the swell of cloud, a tropical depression is a weakened foa m tropical depression is a weakened foam of a hurricane. the rain and wind not as intense but the rain will be heavy enough and the wind is strong enough to cause problems in eastern mexico. especially in some of these coastal districts, all of the moisture feeding in and we could see lots of heavy rain, flash flooding and mudslides. warm air is pumping into southern parts of the us feeding the storm clouds from texas all the way through to northern florida or the way through friday and saturday and we have seen storms through to the north and in the past 24 hours this is the scene in toronto through wednesday night. spectacular thunderstorm here and those are now easing away. there are storm clout easing winners in
9:26 pm
bangladesh, we saw a tropical cyclone hit at the start of the week and still some big storm clouds around, these are being fed by the southerly winds but it is a time of year when we see the south—west monsoon bringing welcoming rains too many part of the country. it's vital for crop growth and the heaviest of the rains tend to be towards the south—west that we will see storm is getting postman to mumbai at times, not near delhi, the pre—monsoon heat is building. into the 40s by sunday afternoon. in contrast to these scenes in bolivia, they are experiencing the coldest weather in about half a century. temperatures all year long around 17—18, not much variation, in the next few days the night—time temperatures have been creeping up after frost. yesterday you would have seen these pictures from germany on tuesday, severe standard storms rattling across berlin and we have seen more and more to come. the storms across
9:27 pm
alpine regions take on the thursday morning and went to friday there will be back again. some of these would be torrential in places and we will see a few more across the balkans over the next few days. it is being caused by the build—up of heat over the past few days, temperatures are widely high 20s or 30s across central and western new europe, much cooler to the north—west. north—east even. as we go into saturday the temperature drops and to get into fresh air units having to an active weather system coming through. northern parts of spain, france and into germany and in the alpine regions, these areas as we go through friday and saturday, we could see some physically nasty storms, with it we will see flash running and in terms of 50 millimetres of rain in terms of 50 millimetres of rain in terms ofa of 50 millimetres of rain in terms of a day, large hail and damaging winds. in the uk the forecast for the week ahead is coming up the next 30 minutes. hello, i'm ros atkins, this is outside source. with just seven days to go until the uk general election, we're broadcasting live from cornwall. we must turn to washington first,
9:28 pm
president trump has confirmed that the us will be withdrawing from the paris agreement, on combatting climate change. as of today, the united states will cease all implement they of the non—binding paris accord, and the draconian financial and economic burden, the agreement imposes on our country. brexit remains the central issue for theresa may. i am confident that we can fulfill the promise of brexit together and build a britain that is stronger, fairer and even more prosperous than it is today. jeremy corbyn is a few hundred miles east of here in essex, where he has warned that theresa may's approach to brexit risks "a jobs meltdown." theresa may says no deal is better than a bad deal. let's be clear — no deal is in fact a bad deal. it is the worst of all deals.
9:29 pm
(applause) across this half hour if you have questions about the general election and brexit and how the two things fit together we will speak to some of the biggest hitters in cornish politics, send your points our way. the same contact details apply. bbc 05 is the same contact details apply. bbc os is the hashtag. to work outside source. welcome to cornwall. around this time, next week, the polls will be almost closed, in the uk general election an of course we don't know what the outcome will be but we can be certain which ever government emerges it its primary task will be
9:30 pm
negotiating brexit. we will get into that in a moment. let me tell you more about where i am. the county benefits from the tourism industry. it was teeming with tourists earlierment while the industry is successful here, cornwall is one of the poorest areas not just cornwall is one of the poorest areas notjust in the uk but in western europe, it also supported brexit, and that is posed a conundrum for the politicians down here, because as you will know politicians from across the political spectrum campaigned for remain and campaigned to leave and we are here to understand how brexit is factoring into the calculations being made by cornish boaters because let us make no bones about it this election is happening because of brexit. theresa may our prime minister says she wa nts a may our prime minister says she wants a stronger hand when entering
9:31 pm
the brexit negotiations and when you look at the poll, when she called the election, lots of people could understand why she went for it. she had leads of up to 20%, but the opposition leader, jeremy corbyn, has had by all accounts a good campaign and if you look at the bbc‘s latest poll of polls, and the tories are in blue, the labour party in red, you will see those polls are starting to narrow. now, last night, the bbc hosted a leaders debate, there were seven people taking part. jeremy corbyn was one of them. theresa may wasn't. instead, is she asked one of her ministers amber rudd to attend, this is how the debate went. there is no extra payment you don't want to add to, no tax you don't want to rise, but the fact is we have to concentrate our resource on the people who need it most, and we have to stop thinking as you do, that there is a magic money tree.|j to stop thinking as you do, that there is a magic money tree. i would say this since am before rubbed seems so say this since am before rubbed seems so confident this is a country at ease with itself, have you been
9:32 pm
toa at ease with itself, have you been to a food bank, have you seen people sleeping round the stations? have you seen. . . applause of course... have you seen the level, have you seen the level of poverty that that exists because of your government, conscious decisions on benefits. have been to food banks. for amber to say this is is a government that cares for the vulnerable is insulting to the kind of people i see in my constituency southernry. the fact is we need to remain in the single market or we will not be able to afford the national health service, social care orany of national health service, social care or any of the support we are talking about. if jeremy cared or any of the support we are talking about. ifjeremy cared about having enough money to spend on those who need it the most, to raise living standards he would not have trooped through the lobbies with the conservatives and ukip to make britain poorer. well we have loss ros for a couple of my opinion, we are going to try
9:33 pm
to reconnect the line to cornwall. we did ask tom bateman to give us an update. it has been a day today where the issue of brexit has become front and centre once again of this election campaign here in the uk, and much of it really has been about tone, we had the prime minister theresa may giving a big speech on all this, a set piece speech, in which she tried to suggest that there was a real sense of optimism in her view about what britain can achieve through that brexit process. so, we apologise for losing the pictures on that but what about this question about why cornwall, why ros is there. this is how they voted in 2010 — three seats to the conservative party and three to the liberal democrats. those are the two parties that formed a coalition government that year. here's the 2015 result — all conservative.
9:34 pm
and in the eu referendum last year — 56% voted to leave, and 43 to stay. but there are some serious economic and the social issues in the county. to find out what voters here cared about the most, ros went along to bbc radio cornwall‘s phone—in programme. so welcome to bbc radio cornwall. this is lawyer press reed i am joined by ross atkins to help you out. i am hoping to understand the reasons people voted for or against brexit, now in form how they are going to vote in the general election. i have no faith in the labour party. i really don't. and because they undermine my vote in brexit, because they make me feel like what i have to say and why i voted the way i voted, i obviously
9:35 pm
had lost my mind. gill. good afternoon. for many years i was a memberof ukip. i afternoon. for many years i was a member of ukip. i really feel ukip have done theirjob now and nigel farage has resigned. sue is in liskeard, afternoon to you. how are you? you are talking to ros. this will be the first time in over 40 yea rs i voted will be the first time in over 40 years i voted conservative. i think mrs may is the one who is going to do it for us. lorraine. what they have done to our fishermen is disgraceful. we got no quota for certain fish and we are looking at spanish vessels fishing for our fish. i have been a tory supporter all my life, and now i have turned completely against them. i don't trust them at all. i think we were all misled, both sides, we all rememberthe all misled, both sides, we all remember the bus with the millions of pounds that was going to go to the nhs. where are those millions?
9:36 pm
not there are they. i will vote for theresa may and the conservatives, because whenever this country has had its back against the wall, whether it was the last war, it has beena whether it was the last war, it has been a conservative, last time it was churchill. thank you very much for all our listener, we only scratched the surface. shall we do it again? we will do it again. lawrence reed, bbc cornwall. that was ros and one of the local bbc station in cornwall. fishery‘s a big part of the cornish economy, and it's fair to say the industry got behind brexit strongly. but it's just one of the many british industries the government is going to have to look out for in the negotiations with europe. ‘x: %of % of the population took 5% of the uk investment, and from 2000, 2014,
9:37 pm
£888 million from the eu went to cornwall and also the isles of scilly which are nearby. then, from 2014, to 2020, it was 480 million but when it came to getting government funding they were given just 18 million in local economy investment funding. ros has been talking to ruth huxley, a local business leader about what leaving the eu could mean for cornwall. for the business of the food and drink sector, the concern with manufacturing is cornwall ‘s largest manufacturing is cornwall ‘s largest manufacturing industry food and drink is the uncertainty around the economy and the economic impact of things like migrant labour and exchange rates. brexit appears to be here to stay, it is brexit having more of an impact on the businesses i work with, than the outcome of this election. what about the cornish brand? when i compare when i was growing up here, not that many
9:38 pm
things put cornwall or cornish in their name, now there is a pro liveration. does brexit offer a challenge to that? challenge or opportunity, opportunity perhaps if it affects the exchange rates to the extent it affects the exchange rates to the exte nt m o re it affects the exchange rates to the extent more people come to cornwall and are able to enjoy the products, more challenges to people exporting, imports ingredients, who knows. tell me quickly about the pasty, is it 0k, me quickly about the pasty, is it ok, is me quickly about the pasty, is it 0k, is it me quickly about the pasty, is it ok, is it protected? you are happy with its long—term future? ok, is it protected? you are happy with its long-term future? the pasty is protected by european protective food name. it is a european scheme thatis food name. it is a european scheme that is recognised widely and by third country, we are reassured that will continue, but it is not guaranteed yet so the cornish pasty association i work with closely is very keen to move things along, it is working, business as usual as far as they are concerned, but, that, those assurances and those defintives can't come soon enough.
9:39 pm
speaking of pasty, let me grab this i spotted earlier, you see this, this is a pasty flavoured bag of crisps. i mean, iam proud and cornish but this feels possibly a step too far. i don't think so at all. many of our customers would disagree, it is by far our best selling flavour of crisps. have you tried them? yes they are made with real beef and everything you would expect to be in a pasty.|j real beef and everything you would expect to be in a pasty. i didn't get a chance to try those crisps but if any of you watching in cornwall let me know, i was not convinced about them but there we go. in a minute we will speak to three of the biggest names in cornish politics about brexit and how it fits into whether their parties are picking up support or not. send us some questions for those three guests who will speak to in a moment on outside source. now as you may well no fisheries is
9:40 pm
a big part of the cornish economy. and it is fair to say the fisheries industry here in cornwall was very much for brexit, you don't have to look hard for unhappy fishermen when it comes to the eument fisheries is one issue of many that will have to fit into new deals being cut between the yuck and ewe. i have been —— uk and eu. i have been talking to george eustace, he is a minister with responsibility for fisheries are. there are two separate elements to the negotiation, one is how we manage fisheries, and of course, in future there still annual negotiations round how we share quotas, we are not going to pull up the drawbridge and stop talking to other countries, there won't be an ex clue zone, there will be annual negotiations but when it comes to trade, there is a separate negotiation and we are be buying from europe, things like cars and maybe champagne from france, and
9:41 pm
fruit and veg, they want to sell us those products and in return we will expect them to buy our fishery products tariff free. quotas are about conserving fish, aren't they, so this expectation i have heard from some cornish people once we are out we will be able to go and get all the fish we can and make as much money, may not materialise? no, look, i was very clear during the referendum campaign, and i campaigned to leave but very clear we are still going to fish sustainably in line with science and there will be a quota system, you have to fish within sustainable limits if you want to protect stock, so those things won't change, what will change is we will be able to negotiate a fairer share of quotas, here in the west country, france has round five times as much haddock quota and five times as much cod quota and five times as much cod quota as cornish firer men, that is not fair quota as cornish firer men, that is notfairand quota as cornish firer men, that is not fair and doesn't reflect where the stock reseeds. one last question, you have been a strong
9:42 pm
proponent of brexit for a long time. i heard caller after caller giving me huge expectation of what brexit is going to deliver, notjust to do with fisheries but britain's standing in the world, to do with the cornish economy, to do with the nhs, the list went on and on, are you worried you have raised expectations to unrealistic levels? no, not all all. expectations to unrealistic levels? no, not allall. i have expectations to unrealistic levels? no, not all all. i have been a minister in defra to four years and i have never known there be such a buzz and excitement about the potential. welcome back to outside source. we are live on the south coast of cornwall in the far south—west of england, talking about brexit and how it plays into the uk election which is one week away. let me introduce you to three big names of cornish politics, sarah newton, andrew george was an mp for 18 years and he is trying to win his seat
9:43 pm
back and you were the last labour mp in cornwall. . we are going to change that. do you think so i think we do. really? the local election suggested that there are few issues for the labour party. yes, we really increased or majority, where we were standing, and there are parts of cornwall that have a long tradition of labour representation. there were boundary changes and that hurt the labour party and people now are coming back, really big, very excited about next thursday. we will see how it goes. undoubtedly this is a complicated election because brexit didn't follow party linesful how is it playing into your effort for support. most people, even though they wanted to remain, they wanted to remain in the european unionjust wanted to remain in the european union just want to get on with it. they want a strong prime minister, a positive team, to actually get the best possible deal they can, for britain and so we are seeing on the doorsteps people from all party,
9:44 pm
switching, because theyjust know than my colleagues and i with theresa may will be able to deliver the best outcome, in brexit for gaul. yours is different tack andrew. not really, i mean, the fact is that as sarah rightly say, certainly, many of those who voted remain andl certainly, many of those who voted remain and i obviously campaigned to remain, have now decided the majority they are now relee veries, i suppose and they accept that democracy, we must move on, we now need to make sure that brexit doesn't harm places like cornwall. cornwall is a very high risk of being one of the big losers from brexit. what we need to do is make sure they are, local people, whether they be fishermen, many of whom voted for remain, in spite of what your report says. most didn't. a lot of the leader, those who lead the
9:45 pm
industry, actually, perhaps you didn't speak to him, because at the public meetings i called and the tory mp wouldn't come to, they, they we re very tory mp wouldn't come to, they, they were very clearly actually saying that we need to be pragmatic about this issue and the last time the conservatives were in, they said that the fishing industry was expendable. let us bring you in. cornwall is a very disparate, we are not a homogenous fishing community, we have two universities, there is a different issue round brexit. i it is not just about farming and different issue round brexit. i it is notjust about farming and fish, we are a diverse economy and for the universities, for renewable energies and new industries which have had huge sums of european money which was a labour government success, it isa was a labour government success, it is a tragedy now. the poorest part of the uk is going to be struggling again. can i say cornwall has particular aspects to it, and that is why i am so pleased we have managed to get a commitment in our
9:46 pm
manifesto, so that all of the funding that cornwall would have got, had we remained in the european union. union. they all talk at once. you are talking about the regional fund. the european programme, the money that would have got till 2020 is committed, a lot of it has been spent. it is already going... £2 billion. to the prosperity fund so it will go forward. you might as well put that on the side of a red bus. let me ask you quickly before we wrap up here, are you worried that there are expectations here, in cornwall, that simply cannot be met, that all of you are promising, fundamental shift to this county which has been struggling for many decade, are you raising peck egg pen tastings? i think i am
9:47 pm
decade, are you raising peck egg pen tastings? i thinki am probably dampening them, i am saying i don't feel there is a commitment from the conservative government, previously to give the money. i am with candy on that, i think tra theresa may is playing megaphone diplomacy from 10 downing street, she is ruining our chances of coming out from europe in a way that we will end up with a decent deal and it is going to seriously harm the cornish economy. we have strong voices here that is getting records levels of investment into cornwall. if we are reelected we will build a positive strong relationship. we will be let down. if we have six tory mps it will be a disaster. all three of you, thank you, i will leave do you talk about it among yourself, you get a taste of how passionate cornish politics can get. lots of people have been raising the fact that the cornish get a disproportionate amount of
9:48 pm
money from the european union. cornwall makes up 1% of the uk population and gets 5% of the eu investment into the uk. but, as we know it is supported brexit. but lots of people, you can find, will say don't worry, this can work all the same. here is one venture capitalist i spoke to earlier who said there is a different way. what we would like to see, most definitely, is a move away from a european granted economy, one that is full of advisory scheme, and things like that and much more private sector led economy. that is what we will be looking for. private sector can't replace the level of financial support that has come from europe, though, can it? that is a very good question. i would argue andi very good question. i would argue and i have been vocal on this, much of the spending from european has been ineffectual, so we would be be great fans of the infrastructure spending, broadband and the roads and the communications, but we have pushed for a long time and this is
9:49 pm
beginning to happening for the capital to be spent in a much more productive way, right now, and i can give you the stats but the last, the last tranche of money that came out, the majority has gone to cornwall council or public sector, 85 million has gone on to free advisory programmes in the county i would question how effective these are going to be. well, next, it is dark ican going to be. well, next, it is dark i can see the moon up here, the sun has left us here on the south coast of cornwall, let us talk about young voter, because they could be crucial to the outcome of next week's uk election, here is an interesting tweet we saw from the independent saying young voter have registered to vote in force. theresa may has made a to vote in force. theresa may has madea dire to vote in force. theresa may has made a dire mistake underestimating them. certainly how they figure in this election depends on who you ask. this is a yougov poll. it shows us the voting intention of
9:50 pm
18—24—year—olds, versus the voting intentions of people over 65 or over and with the conservatives in blue, and with the conservatives in blue, and the labour in red, you can see as well as i can, the differences there, but here is an interesting bit of analysis, this is from matt from ft says polls that show narrow conservative leads are those that base on the likelihood of casting a ballot. this is one lot of polling basing on how people tend to behave and one lot on how they say they are going to behave. you can believe who you like. let us talk about young voters with, well, three young voters. abbey, daniel here, good to see you all. thank you for being with us. talk to me about brexit, is ita with us. talk to me about brexit, is it a big factor in your voting intentions yes: i think it changed a lot especially like labour, they we re lot especially like labour, they were vote to remain and i think obviously we are going to stay with what the majority are said now, but
9:51 pm
i think what labour are doing, i think supporting it is what they should be doing. dan? i would say that brexit is a massive thing for young voter, we know we are going to leave the european union, whether we like it or not, and it is going to have to be the deof who you want at the table. for me it is about our futures and i don't trust jeremy corbyn to do it. why not jeremy corbyn to do it. why not jeremy corbyn has not shown great leadership. theresa may has managed to get 35 opt outs, of previously new treaties including the european arrest warrant. so i will put my future behind her and not arrest warrant. so i will put my future behind herand notjeremy corbyn. for me h as you know, i am thinking of voting liberal democrat, ido thinking of voting liberal democrat, i do feel that my party's, well, the party i i would like to vote for, does have a certain necessity to ta ke
9:52 pm
does have a certain necessity to take the opposite vote, but... there is the risk you vote liberal democrat and you are trying to reverse the will of the people. and i think that is true, i think the thing... you are trying to reverse the role of the people? no, there is a danger people will think that, i think especially in cornwall, think that given that there is a certain danger with that, especially since it is such a traditionally a liberal heartland. abbey, talk to me about your leader, there is lots of suggestion to show his policies are more popular than he is slj suggestion to show his policies are more popular than he is s i think he has done a good job. i support him especially. i think he is a great leader, he is passionate. are you and your mates going to vote? this is what the pollsters are say, if they do it could change the outcome. it is interesting you say that, in my house we have big labour signs out. my bedroom is at the back. i am
9:53 pm
the only person in my choice that has bothered to register to vote. do you have discussions about that? completely and they are just so fixated, they have no economic experience and they don't have a mortgage, they is why they are voting labour, they have no idea. all three of you thank you for finishing our coverage in cornwall. to those of you watching, if you wa nt to to those of you watching, if you want to learn more about donald trump or the election, we will head to the website. we will be back with you next week next time from the north—west of england. bye from cornwall. as is often the case we saw wig contracts in terms of the look and the feel of the weather. here is one of our weather watcher pictures from fife, cloudy, rain in the air, much
9:54 pm
of scotla nd fife, cloudy, rain in the air, much of scotland and northern ireland had a pretty grey and damp day. the opposite though, for england and wales, plenty of sunshine out there, and it was warm, quite widely. the reason for the difference was this weather front, which overnight slowly is creeping across the irish sea, getting into the western fringes of england and wales, it is the dividing line between warm air in england and wales and something fresher into scotland and northern ireland. the next few days it is that fresh air that will win out. that flourish air is coming in behind the weather front. the rain becomes lighter and patchy, ahead of that it becomes lighter and patchy, ahead of thatitis becomes lighter and patchy, ahead of that it is will be warm, humid, and we could see thunderstorms breaking out here into the afternoon. as temperatures get to 25, 26, maybe 27 degrees in one or two spots. further west it is largely dry, and temperatures will be round 17 or 18 degrees. that fresher breeze will get across all parts into the week. there will be sunshine round and some showers and some could turn out to be on heavy side. let us look at
9:55 pm
saturday. we have low pressure in the north atlantic, that is driving this weather feature towards us. that will be a focal point for cloud and rain. the western side of england and wales, turning cloudy, a bit of a breeze as well. northern ireland will see rain too, and that will cross into western scotland into the afternoon. further south and east it is largely dry and top temperatures down by several degrees. many places round about 16 or 17 degrees. then through saturday night on into sunday, the weather feature moves north, the rain becoming lighter on that, another area of rain might affect cornwall. the western side at risk of shower, the further east you go it is largely dry. top temperatures coming down, 19 degrees and many places only 14 or 15. then as we head to monday, we are looking out to the atlantic again for this feature to come our way, there are question marks about the detail of the rain but it looks like it could be extensive. it starts off
9:56 pm
in the west and spreads eastwards so maybe not a great start to the new week, particularly if you have travel plans on the roads. there will be surface water and spray. that moves out of the way into tuesday, with low pressure close to the eastern side of the uk, that is where focal point for showers is likely to be on tuesday, so the eastern side of scotland, england,out breaks of rain coming in and going, it is largely dry, top temperatures 19 and 15 in other places, looking ahead to the middle of testify coming week, it looks like we will see this weather system coming in from the west, that has a few‘s bars associated with it. it may be windy, blowing a gale in the far north—west. it should be largely fine though, that high doesn't move too far by the plait erstages of next week. it is still there. further north and west, we have low pressure systems moving through and they are likely to bring spells of
9:57 pm
wind and rain with them. so yes, it will be wet, windy at times, mainly in the north—west, a bit of rain is likely at times in the south—east, but generally that bit drier, it will feel fresh in the north—west, but still going to be warm in the south—east. bye for now. from the paris climate treaty, president trump says it's damaging the us economy. speaking within the past hour the president said he'd try to renegotiate but the current gave other countries an unfair advantage over us industry.
9:58 pm
we will see if we can make a deal that's fair. and if we can, that's great. and if we can't, that's fine. the paris climate agreement was signed by 200 countries just two years ago to limit greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. the decision will have fatal consequences for the environment and for people around the world according to climate experts and world leaders he is weakening america, he is losing jobs, he's exposing americans to worst climate change. americans to worst climate change. we'll have the details and the reaction to the president's announcement. also tonight:
