11:45 pm
ijust think it was very unnecessary. i know it's easy to say that in hindsight, but at a time when you need complete stability, there wasjust no need for it at all. i think it was a really bad error of judgment. of the ones who voted conservative, which of you like theresa may as much, or more, than you did before the election? 0k. ifeel the same. i didn't find her a hugely warm character. when she appeared on the one show, it was embarrassing. so, what is the bit that you warm to? you don't warm... her stability. the confidence she gives me in the way she's going to continue to run the economy. let me ask the labour voters, which of you likejeremy corbyn as much or more since you voted, or since the election? yes. i've liked him since i saw him as a local mp in islington, actually. ok, but you like him more? he has grown in stature? do you think this is just about who won and who lost, not in actual numbers,
11:46 pm
but in terms of who was seen to have a good campaign, and who wasn't having a good campaign? i think this is something that doesn't necessarilyjust come down to the campaign. i personally supportjeremy corbyn because this is a process, this is a great, and what he represents is part of this process. it is a shift from this, kind of, establishment politics to something which is more for the community, the bottom, the people. who here thinks brexit won't actually happen now? i have no idea. i think it will. just a softer version than what she wanted. it is this word that hangs there, brexit, what does it mean? you know? we don't know what it means yet. when it happens we will have a list of things that our policies and things that are going to happen. maybe there should be a vote, then. if we all turn against it all of us in this room say, no, that's going to affect my mum, the children, that's going to affect the health service...
11:47 pm
we can't have that happen to our country. i think that britain will be outside the eu paying all the same fees for all the same privileges they have. they will not be part of europe because we voted to be out of it. does everyone agree with paula on this one? but they are going to have to pay for it, because how can you trade, how can you trade in isolation? ok, let's have a look at domestic agenda. if there was one issue that really... ..caught hold of you during this election, in domestic terms come away from brexit, what was it? austerity. cuts, yes. austerity, nhs. stable economy. last question, if there was an election next week, god forbid, who would vote forjeremy corbyn? yes. definitely. put your hand up. one, two, three, four, five... interesting. so you've switched now. who would vote for a conservative other than theresa may? quite possibly. yes. if i said borisjohnson, would you put your hand down?
11:48 pm
borisjohnson? well, if he was the only choice. and who would vote for theresa may? i would vote again for theresa may. two of you. i was voting for labour policies, notjeremy corbyn, but he is the leader, but i think it is about being policy driven. i think that is really important is. is that the thing we've learnt? we need somebody inspirational to push it forward, but it should be about the ideas first and foremost. i think it is a shame that we focus on the personalities of the leaders, because that's not the thing, is it? it's what they do, not what they've said. it sounds like we should take this on to the pub now. thank you all very much indeed. well a lot of the anger that we've been seeing today has been from friends and relatives who want to know what has happened to their loved ones. the tower is now a burnt out shell — and the site of a criminal investigation, and toxic and strucutually unsafe. so how do they even begin to make sense of what actually happened in here on tuesday night and how long will it be before forensic
11:49 pm
teams are able to provide answers as to who lost their lives inside. lessons can be learnt from the aftermath of the 9/11 attack on the twin towers. one of the forensic pathologists of that catasrophe was drjudy melinek — whojoined me earleir from san francisco. whojoined me earlier from san francisco. i asked her what she had learnt then that could be shared with us now. a thorough investigation is not something that can be done overnight. it takes weeks and even months, and sometimes up to and including years in order to get to the bottom of what happens. in the immediate aftermath, first and most importantly, the people who are responding and the supervisors in charge need to make sure that the structure is sufficiently safe and sound so that first responders who are going in there and those who are charged with the recovery of the remains are safe, as well, otherwise we'll have more tragedies. and the next step would be to collect important information from the families of the deceased. about their ways to identify them, either identifying marks or scars,
11:50 pm
jewellery, tattoos and also collect dna. and how difficult you think it will be to collect dna? the most important thing is that we don't know at this particular point what the condition of the remains are. there could be a whole discrepancy between people who are intact, butjust suffered from smoke inhalation, compared to people whose bodies are completely charred. and a situation such as this you can have difficulty because, for example, in 9/11 we could get exemplar asked from the deceased. so we could get the toothbrush of the person who is missing. or we could get the underwear of the person who is missing. and use that to compare them to the person. it easier to compare self to solve than to compare self to next of kin. it easier to compare self to self than to compare self to next of kin. and so in this particular situation, you've got people who are dead within their residencies, all of their personal property basically went up in flames
11:51 pm
with them, and so it seems that most likely the analyses are going to have to be to next of kin relatives, and that's more difficult. am i right in thinking that in the twin towers, some 40% of bodies were never identified ? that is correct. the reason for that is because of the forces at play in that particular incident where you had jet fuel. you had collapse of the building. you had fires that went on for months. we don't have exactly the same scenario here, so i'm hopeful that dna analysis will be more fruitful in a case such as this. this will be devastating news to many of the families. and they will want to know what happens if they don't get that identification. in the united states for 911 victims who were not identified based on their bodies, there was a legal process put into place, a judicial process, where the person was declared dead and a death certificate was created so that the families could then have closure, close—out financial concerns, and move on,
11:52 pm
even though the body parts had not yet been identified. so there was a delay in that. and if and when dna analysis occurred at a later time those data points were merged with the death certificate that was put together byjudicial review. at least the death certificate allows the family to move on. even when remains are taking longer to identify. you started by saying that the key was communication. do you think authorities have explained fully enough here just how lengthy and difficult a process this will be? i think it is important that they set up a command centre and that they have public relation staff who are on hand to be able to answer these questions. typically what happens is we will set up a family centre separate from the coroner's office so that the families can go and get resources, as well. and in this particular situation you have people who are in need of housing, as well. and charity work. so that can all be centralised and you can use that family centre
11:53 pm
as a repository for also collecting information about the deceased and people who are missing, and also exemplars for dna analysis. thank you very much, thank you. before we go, i will go through some of the front pages. the same story but reported with different leads. the protest moves onto the street. the daily telegraph, militants hijacked the protest, they have accused them of exploiting it. this sun headline, it was murder. and there is a tale of two photos with the queen and theresa may. that's all from us at the end of a week — and a fortnight — that will be remembered in this country
