grabbed headlines in the us. well, an investigation by the times here in britain has found russian hackers have allegedly been trading the online passwords of some uk cabinet ministers, ambassadors and senior police. thousands of officials appear to be targeted. what are your weaknesses? the job interview question that many of us struggle to answer. well, research in the daily telegraph has found well qualified people who voluntarily talked about their flaws were more likely to win the role, apparently because they stand out from the rest. we will get to that one in a minute. so let's begin. with me is david buik, market strategist at panmure gordon. thank you forjoining us. good morning to you. we'll start with a story about theresa may, the headline the independent, about not having to leave. what a waste of time the last two months have been. two months ago 17 overall majority,
a position of relative strength, calls an election, unmitigated disaster. leave the united kingdom ina very disaster. leave the united kingdom in a very different position as paul david davis went over this monday to start negotiations with michelle barnier. if you recall, what mrs may said, they were not discussing things individually. i thought it was a serious show of good faith by david davis on monday when he said look, i'm happy to live trade until later but let's agree the citizen situation and also the budget. this is made over their loved the task saying he could still say no, no, you can't. the fact remains is a game, she is never i consider to be absolutely the right concession. there is no way the uk economy will buzz again. unless we have properly supported by people that contribute to the economy and there is no argument at all but the immigration policy of this country, and i'm a brexiteer, is far better with
immigration, controlled immigration. so to say that the 3 million people can stay here, spot the money. so to say that the 3 million people can stay here, spot the moneylj guess surprised she has done that now? i think she is in a position of great weakness, if i may say so. this is the second concession, no more. unfortunately we're in a position where everyone thinks the government ‘s back is against the wall and we need to show true courage, spirit, the country delivered a mandate onjune 23 last you and they have to go through with it. brexit is brexit as far as i'm concerned. hard, idon't it. brexit is brexit as far as i'm concerned. hard, i don't care. you deliver it or you don't. i think it will be considerable possessions, we have started with the immigration position which i think has been watered down but i would like to see that we actually put something on the table that the eu— i mean, michel barnier slightly cynical towards us and certainly michel barnier is not a friend of this
country, no matter what we say. i think she actually, although she doesn't get much credit in the press, a great start. let's move on and talk about 0bamacare, all the repeal thereof, and the idea that the alternative bill is not going to get through, four republicans have already said they will not support it but are open to negotiation. its incredible the difference in culture than the us. to us, healthcare is everything. whereas in the us, sort of— well, you have to earn it. 0bama, no matter what you thought about his foreign policy, which was weak, his domestic front was quite strong and now we have a new president, he is dismissed 0bamacare with the contempt it possibly doesn't deserve and has put his own idea down on the table, up pops the heads above the parapet, rainfall, mitch mcconnell, people who will support —— not support anything, they are saying simply is not
draconian enough and that does, to me, send shivers down my spine. if you know what i mean. that is one of the policies on which it was all a dead. what interested me most was the senate bill would make subsidies less generous than under the current law, it would lower the income limit for receiving subsidies to cover insurance premiums to 350% of the poverty level, or about $42,000 per individual from poverty level, or about $42,000 per individualfrom 400%. it poverty level, or about $42,000 per individual from 400%. it is such a tricky thing but he is having such an appalling time getting stuff through congress. he will have to come up with some new ideas. through congress. he will have to come up with some new ideasm through congress. he will have to come up with some new ideas. it was a man that went to the core of 0bama's time, he has spoken on facebook about it, he has been reticent lately but he has come out. stepped up to the plate as they say. let's talk about the chinese companies who are making the lot of foreign investment, won football clu bs foreign investment, won football clubs in the uk, cinema chains, us production, now we're having some the companies, airlines are
investigated, other over extending themselves but does this come from a place of concern about their financial stability or about china, the money leaving china and being invested elsewhere? about ten years ago i think five banks had ipos in china. india? india, sorry. and ended up in three of the largest banks in the world and they lend money with a man with no arms or legs and it was extraordinary. and around shanghai, use the millions of towers, no one lives in them. so there has always been a feeling now for about three years that the chinese banks are under — you step back and she think i don't like this. you mentioned this, but they have been doing overseas investment andi have been doing overseas investment and i think this is small fry in comparison to the real big... 0verseas investment is small fry? comparison to the real big... overseas investment is small fry? as to within china? i wouldn't worry about it because it if this is the
eu, the uk or the us you would be worried. if there were problems with the chinese banks could have a knock—on effect that we saw with the sub—prime. knock—on effect that we saw with the sub-prime. i? china, it doesn't suit them at the time, they are powerful. it is for me a rural problem and if you are asking me to step up to the plate and buy those shares, probably not. but i have great respect for the chinese government in order to fudge things up and fund them if they have to. now, hacking, russian hacking feels like it has been in the headlines for months and years and now the concern allegedly that there has been cracking —— hacking, criminals have been able to get their hands on passwords and e—mails of some uk officials. extraordinary. like greg clark, it is a huge number of people. 1000 mps, 7000 employees apparently, and 1000 in the foreign 0ffice apparently, and 1000 in the foreign office and the national cyber security centre has been on notice
to try to do something about it at it was interesting that it has been proven fromjames it was interesting that it has been proven from james comey, you know, in the us, the fbi chap who lost his job, the russians are at large and we need to understand this. cyber protection i think, this is a fantastic how can i put it illustration to do something about it before the whole world in terms of security is destroyed. reflect, what would you say your weaknesses are inajob what would you say your weaknesses are in a job interview? i am a glutton. a glutton? very good. i'm a perfectionist. that's all from us right now. we willjoin you again in a moment. well, it has certainly freshened up right across the uk. here'sjust a reminder of the heatwave we had on wednesday. the peak 35, nearly, degrees celsius across the south—east.
come thursday, almost a ten degree drop as these fresher atlantic conditions are setting in. but some spectacular weather as well. this is a picture of a thunderstorm taken by a weather watcher in kent. but further north, and across western areas, those atlantic clouds have been rolling in, bringing much cooler conditions. this is the system. this system will be responsible for bringing some quite windy weather, particularly into northern areas, back into the weekend. let's look at friday, early hours of the morning. rain getting into parts of northern ireland, western and south—western scotland. for most of us in the south and east, it will be a dry end to the night. still quite warm for the morning. 14—15 celsius. let's look at rush hour. at this stage in belfast, glasgow, maybe edinburgh, some spots of rain, nothing too heavy. some heavier pulse is possible a little further south into the lake district, lancashire maybe, northern parts of wales, but for most of the central and southern areas,
a dry start to the day. some sunshine poking through and temperatures around 15 or 16 degrees. now, this here, this band of weather, this is actually cold front or cool front, that brings fresher atlantic conditions in, it is going to sink southwards in the morning and into the afternoon. so across parts of the midlands and wales, there will be spots of rain, and as it moves south, it is going to brighten up in belfast and glasgow. so some sunshine in the afternoon. a fair bit of cloud in london, up to 23. it is worth pointing out the wind in northern scotland. could be up to gale force. pretty unusual for this time of year, with showers around, as well. i think on saturday, and sunday as well, a bit of a mixed day — sunny spells, passing showers, and even those even fresher atlantic conditions setting in. in fact, many of us will not have temperatures up to 20 degrees. maybe london just scraping into the low 20s.
how are we doing compared to the rest of europe? it has been hot in paris. similar temperatures to london. berlin as well. as you'd expect in the mediterranean, in rome, temperatures still on the hot side. temperatures still into the 30s. the next two days, fresh and breezy. rain at times, but also some sunshine from time to time. goodbye. hello, this is breakfast, with charlie stayt and naga munchetty. giving eu citizens the right to stay in the uk after brexit. the prime minister says around three million people could get a new "settled status". she unveiled the plan at her first summit since the general election, but the labour party says it's "too little, too late". it's a year since the uk voted to leave the eu. a lot has happened since then, so do those who voted change their mind?
