that was released, in an attempt by donald trump junior to take control? that is a great point, i think what we are seeing is this conspiracy, or is this just we are seeing is this conspiracy, or is thisjust a we are seeing is this conspiracy, or is this just a series of inept people coming into power, not revealing what they knew and what they should have revealed? when you are forced to reveal things, even if it is not a huge secret, itjust looks bad. the trump administration has this narrative that something being hidden will does not go away. this wasn't covered in all the papers. it is next week. the washington post, it is a campaign trailfor washington post, it is a campaign trail for them. washington post, it is a campaign trailfor them. one washington post, it is a campaign trail for them. one or two washington post, it is a campaign trailfor them. one or two papers, the new york times honing in, some others may just leave it the new york times honing in, some others mayjust leave it for the time being? it is interesting, the investment in journalism at the washington post over the last year has been extraordinary. the coverage of the trump administration and their ability to keep getting scoops

is really impressive. the daily telegraph, many papers in the uk lead on the story that bbc stars who are man are disproportionately paid, compared to their female counterparts. many of whom do exactly the same job will for example, the stars of their breakfast television. example, the stars of their breakfast televisionlj example, the stars of their breakfast television. i am sure there are going to be some good conversations this morning. how amazing for the bbc team. they must have been preparing for this, expecting people to say that eve ryo ne expecting people to say that everyone was paid too much in general. story has really been about the discrepancy between what men and women are paid. some of them, the difference between barry and claire is really striking people at home. people see claire as a bit of a national hero. also, two sports

television presenters, those of whom are fairly prolific. clare balding arguing that she presents more than he does? the real point is that we arejust he does? the real point is that we are just getting this snapshot at the top of the tree. i imagine many people are doing morejuniorjobs, the bbc has presented itself as an organisation which is very proactive about equality. they have said 50- 50x20 about equality. they have said 50- 50 x 20 20. that is the target.|j about equality. they have said 50- 50 x 20 20. that is the target. i do think it makes it difficult for the likes ofjohn humphrys to be quizzing people about fat cats, about their lives, public pay sector rises. all the time you could just say, hold on, how could you quizzed me about that? one last thought, our bbc media editor would say the opposite to the telegraph. it is not

about styles taking a pay cut, it is about styles taking a pay cut, it is about others demanding a pay rise. moving on to the story, i think we could talk about this north korean deal that is being proposed by south korea. interestingly, the deal won't necessarily get resident trump's approval? it might get kim jong-un's approval. it is quite clear what the differences are between washington and seoul. they want to talk to north korea, they believe they can negotiate something. the new president says he would like to see a nuclear deal within five years. maybe donald trump thinks that, on one hand, it is ok to have someone having a bit of an opendoor policy. in the background, he is kind of working in tandem, possibly. iam not sure how much disagreement areas. cracking on. the head of the

armed forces in france quitting his job. no great surprise, although he was not public about it, he spoke out about a budget cut. he went out against a president who can do no wrong at the moment. a budget cut this year, emmanuel macron saying next year would be a big jump. emmanuel macron is in focus. he has said, iam emmanuel macron is in focus. he has said, i am your leader, i don't need your pressure. he had a slight dip in approval ratings, that always happens in the first 100 days. there isa happens in the first 100 days. there is a bit ofa happens in the first 100 days. there is a bit of a sense that he is overconfident at the moment. let's remember, those first 100 days, all presidents around the world, it has become a real test. how much can you get done, and how quickly? he won't worry about this too much. we will see what happens after the first 100 days. having a look at the

independent. figures coming out of mosul. this is about the number of civilians who are dead. it is terrifying, i don't know what to make of it. the figure is said not to be the 6000 has been reported, closer to 40,000. this was reported bya closer to 40,000. this was reported by a classicjournalist closer to 40,000. this was reported by a classic journalist who gets closer to 40,000. this was reported by a classicjournalist who gets the scoop again and again. we have got no real plan about what happens in mosul after islamic state. there have always been fears that, if you don't have a takeover that seems fairand don't have a takeover that seems fair and extra ball and the people there are invested in it, you just set off another wave of violence. if people are being killed on this level, it makes you very concerned for the months ahead. now for the google glasses. the first time around, they didn't take off, they are putting them back onto the market. this time, they think that professionals might use them? the

through of torrential downpours, and there were reports of flash flooding across the rhyl area and parts of western lancashire. during the small hours of thursday, those heavy, thundery showers continue to move their way northwards. quite a wet start to thursday across scotland. further south, much of england and wales, it's going to be cloudy with showery outbreaks of rain. the odd heavier burst there too. turning a little bit cool and fresh and pushing to the far west, but quite a humid start again for thursday morning across eastern areas. and it means it will be quite a drab start across many eastern areas through the morning, and outbreaks of rain, the odd heavy outbursts too. eventually clearing out into the north sea, becoming more confined towards the north—east of scotland. but something a bit brighter and drier into the afternoon, but with it cooler and fresher air, so you will notice that — highs around 21 and 22 degrees across the southeast. further west, even cooler than that. around the mid—teens celsius, but at least you have the sunshine to compensate. in towards scotland, it's central northern areas will see most of the cloud, outbreaks

of rain, the odd heavier burst, particularly across the northern isles. and then into northern ireland, something more showery moving in later on in the day. that is because of this area of low pressure which will become quite a player in our weather through friday, and potentially on into the weekend as well. notice isobars deepening as it continues to move in towards western parts of the uk. so it means quite a windy day for the western half of the country. and a weather front, pretty slow moving, will bring a lots of rain to northern ireland, to wales, particularly into south—west england and maybe in towards the west midlands. whereas further north and east, actually a fine dry day with some sunny spells and temperatures around 20—23 degrees. but cooler further west under that rain. through friday night, the weather front slowly gets a wiggle on, moves its way a little bit further northwards and eastwards but it's still with us though, as we head on into saturday, but a bit of a disappointing start to the weekend, i have to say, across northern and eastern areas — quite wet, the odd heavier burst there, too. feeling quite cool as well. the south could see the sunshine come out a little bit but then blustery showers
5:57 am
will arrive and it will feel fresh. 0n into sunday, the winds ease down a little bit but it doesn't mean any showers that develop through central southern areas could be quite slow—moving so quite a bit of rain falling in a short space of time. further north, it looks like it will remain quite wet. i think the main message is, then, through this weekend, it is going to remain fairly cool and fresh for the time of year, longer spells of rain, but more likely showers and sunny spells. good morning, it's thursday the 20th ofjuly.
