it looks at how security is tight because of the threat of protests. 11,000 police officers will be protecting president xi and the first lady during their three day visit. "accept demands or it's goodbye qatar". a stark message from the united arab emirates‘ ambassador to moscow. in the gulf news, the ambassador insists doha must comply with a 13—point demand list, otherwise it'll face expulsion from the gcc, the gulf cooperation council. many of the british papers leading with this story — the six people facing criminal charges for the hillsborough disaster. the independent paying tribute to the 96 liverpool fans who died from the football ground crush in 1989. the financial times reports on two days of heavy market trading, after so—called confusion — apparently caused by two of europe's most influential central bankers. it says mark carney and mario draghi

struggled to communicate how they would exit out of economic stimulus policies. the new york times writes about the rise in populism around the world, but how canada has bucked the trend. the article says an inclusive political culture has helped to stop immigration being a polarising issue. ever thought about where your plastic drink bottle ends up? the guardian's looking at what it calls an environmental crisis — one million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute! and one presumes that1 million are thrown away as well. what a great talking when. we have with us a deputy chief, lawrence. shall we start with the president xi jinping visit. we have seen protests of, my

goodness, they are not taking any chances, are they? it is extraordinary and there was a big rally planned for the first ofjuly. the protesters it is the whole issue of about how they believe they were promised some form of universal suffrage and that was when the uk handed hong kong back to china. they feel it is never, never will come. how important do you think hong kong is to china? 20 years ago it was very important. is it still? 20 yea rs very important. is it still? 20 years ago was quite symbolic. 20 yea rs years ago was quite symbolic. 20 years on it is less important but given itself, hong kong has probably had the oldest running financials infrastructure. china is starting to enter into that debate so i think hong kong still remains important as
5:48 am
it helps china develop its own stock market, bond market. from that perspective, yes, still quite key. i noticed that president xi jinping said that hong kong had a place in his heart. i think that has mixed m essa 9 es his heart. i think that has mixed messages from the start. it does. but it reaffirms the importance of the island. here are some pictures of him with the first lady coming out of the plane. that will be on the front pages i am certain tomorrow. let's go to qatar. the gulf news. they really are ratcheting up the pressure, aren't they? this is really developed in they? this is really developed in the last three or four weeks. there seems to have been no easing up on qatar as well. the pressure, as he said in the introduction, talking about expulsion from the gcc. it is an acronym, but it is important. it is the credibility gives some of the individual states. it is extraordinary how vulnerable as they
5:49 am
like that if which really has nothing apart from gas and it has vast quantities of gas but apart from that, it really is very much on its own. completely. again, gained some significance in notoriety when was awarded the world cup. it has the world in five years time. what you feel in this whole debate is that qatar will have to give up something symbolically to be seen to be almost kind of assuaging some of the concerns from some of the other gulf states. it could give up the world cup, it came out with official report the other day relatively unscathed so that may not be it. interestingly language or so. just quote the uae's foreign affairs minister saying that we invite the brother to choose his surroundings, honesty and transparency in dealing with the issue. we have long suffered from the brothers conspiracy to undermine our stability. there is no pulling punches there. it will carry on. definitely. hillsborough. this dolls

dominate the newspapers in the uk, doesn't it? yes. in the picture on the front is one that people throughout the uk will be familiar with. it strikes me the analogy with the situation in the grenfell tower. 80 people there have died. in 28 yea rs 80 people there have died. in 28 years time we may still be talking about grenfell tower because i think this is kind of... 0rdinary people, you know, not wanting their loved ones to be lost in a tragedy. on the question why. why did this happen? it happens now with grenfell tower and looks at will take a long time to get answers there. yes. and it is interesting that people of not let this sort of issue die. we have charges, a court case in a few years time. we will certainly have a replay of something soon. this is interesting. is there an ability to learn from a lesson like this? 28 years, obviously by anyone's reckoning is outrageous. football
5:51 am
has changed enormously since then. don't you think? was a belly as a result is that and in the way spectators are. definitely. my thought was 28 years to reach a point which they decided that people needed to be charged,... the wheels of justice. grenfell needed to be charged,... the wheels ofjustice. grenfell tower needed to be charged,... the wheels of justice. grenfell tower are sending the message that this needs to be fast. will that lesson be learnt? and if we could go back to the same period, we had a fire at a football clu b the same period, we had a fire at a football club and that is a different scenario. it was a major fire, people remember it be you don't see the faces of the people killed there. but there is something extraordinary about hillsborough. and maybe again with grenfell tower. but we cannot afford to these things not to be dealt with a lot quick and., quicker. not to be dealt with a lot quick and. , quicker. moving not to be dealt with a lot quick and., quicker. moving to not to be dealt with a lot quick and. , quicker. moving to the financial times. confused ? and. , quicker. moving to the financial times. confused? i certainly am. i think we are the
5:52 am
watershed and i think that story bridwell out. a watershed of something which started back in 2008. this is... quantitative easing was said to revive the global economy that was on its knees. it is the electronic printing of money to help we stimulate the economy. eight yea rs help we stimulate the economy. eight years on, the market wants to know how this money will be gently sucked out of the system to stop inflation coming through. it is a story that jamie andi coming through. it is a story that jamie and i can be excited about and discuss all morning. it is very important and we will see these little tantrums in the market until there is something clear. is there... the question is confusion. if their division? are they different approaches are trying to cover? certainly, without doubt and we have seen a different approach in the us as well. they had their tantrum 18 months ago and now the uk and europe are going through it. it is an extraordinary time. the
5:53 am
tantrum is when people start to worry about... you turn the tap off, as it were, in terms of money pouring into the economy. and then you have all this money washing around the economy and what will the effect be as things start to normalise? the effect be as things start to normalise ? the obvious effect be as things start to normalise? the obvious thing is inflation but there are many other interpretations about what could happen. absolutely. and they try not to stop the gentle global recovery thatis to stop the gentle global recovery that is there. it is too early to stop it in its tracks. you'll love it. they do. everyone is making money. market creates the uncertainty itself. onto our last story in the guardian. the surge in plastic bottle use sparked a global alert. sheer numbers. we all know is there and we know it is a problem but on this scale... we talking about half a trillion plastic bottles. will probably get out of here and have a drink of water. the average person who eats fish will be
5:54 am
just 11,000 particles of plastic in one year. and there was a well washed up on the shore recently with a stomach full of plastic bottles that had killed it. it is kind of extraordinary. 0n the ridiculous thing is that nearly all of them are recycla ble thing is that nearly all of them are recyclable the point? did you think that they were recyclable? a large number are. a small minority are in fa ct. number are. a small minority are in fact. i expect we will see major pushis fact. i expect we will see major push is to encourage us to recycle, possibly even financial incentives. it can be done. it is one of those stories that everyone will discuss all day. thank you very much indeed for that. we will see you later. more news on a sec. if the truth be known, thursday will be a hard sell for the latter part ofjune, given that low pressure is still very much the dominant feature. not a cold start to the day, that is positive, 12,
5:55 am
13, 1a degrees across the south. but as i say, even on this big picture here you get a sense that there is an awful lot of wet and windy weather to be had, not just to be found across the northern half of the british isles either. as we slump towards the south—west, a dank start here. not cold, 13, 1a degrees but the cloud sits low on the tors and moors in the south—west. hill fog around, further east and it is a good deal drier, still a lot of cloud with a hint of brightness if you are lucky. in the northern part of wales in the north of england, light patchy rain here with hill fog around. the rain beginning there to ramp up and as we come into the heart of scotland, a lot of rain here, especially in the south—east and into the north—east of england. weather warnings about this. a lot of rain here just keeps on coming. it is fed in by this north to north—westerly wind and that will be it for the day. that is the bad news about it. all the while the rain is trying
5:56 am
to move a bit further north through the course of the day. so for any heat at all, well, we have to rely on a little sunshine coming through in the south—east. 18, 19 here but underneath the cloud wind and rain further north, up to 1a degrees. itjust keeps on coming through the daylight hours. here we are into the evening and the pattern is very much the same. i changed the day and the pattern remains the same. the one crumb of comfort at this stage is that by then we may see 80 millimetres of rain across the high ground in the north—east and the rain will be lighter and patchier across the north and west. down in the south—east, 23, mayjust pop off a couple of heavy showers and the start of the weekend looks to be a bit damp across the south—eastern quarter until that front moves off into the near continent and then we look back towards the atlantic to see the supply of weather for the weekend. once the front is gone, there is a lull in proceedings and a decent day for many on saturday. pushing the weather front into the north—western corner
5:57 am
of the british isles during the course of saturday afternoon, that will then transfer a weakening band of weather down towards the south—west and we do it all again. not a bad day following on behind but again, a scattering of showers across the northern and western parts of scotland. so compared to what comes in the next 2a hours or so, the weekend is dry, bright and warm for many of us. hello. this is breakfast with naga munchetty and charlie stayt. the next step into finding out what caused the tragedy at grenfell tower — a retired high courtjudge will be appointed to lead the public inquiry. it comes as the group representing housing associations calls on the government to stop its testing of cladding because the results are already so conclusive. good morning.
5:58 am
