company 's they are the last of the company ‘s to do this. itjust seems that if you switch it off. make any difference. it sparks everybody else off to put up their prices. exactly. let's move on to the daily telegraph. priti patel, the international development secretary, demanding restraint on civil service pgy- demanding restraint on civil service pay. talking about the crazy salaries, saying it isn't in step. it is about public sector pay, about people struggling, their wages not going up. now she has said that now it's time for restraint. it bothers me. out of step with public opinion. public opinion on something like hanging is bad. if you went with everything in public opinion you would not be in office. you way up reasoned argument and make a decision. this does not sit very well with somebody like me. as for
10:46 pm
the salaries, £300,000, i mean, the boss of british gas gets £4 million. if we are talking salaries then people get more angry about the british gas man than they would about someone they've never heard of it was probably dealing with a mountain of paperwork caused by brexit. it is a lot of money. £150,000 is a lot of money, given the average salary. a teacher, a nurse, lots of others will be thinking, hang on, this is not fair. there is so much about the public sector pay cap. this might be part of the government's tactic. they won't let the whole thing. you might see certain sectors being lifted, such as nurses. this might be laying the groundwork. 0r such as nurses. this might be laying the groundwork. or it could be priti patel trying to deflect attention from the foreign aid budget, which a lot of people think is a waste of money. will they left it? each pay body gives its own version. they can
10:47 pm
pick and choose. they can go with public opinion. let's move on to the times. the story about uber. do you useit? times. the story about uber. do you use it? yes, and i have paid the surge before. what is it? particularly on a saturday night, you go on your phone can you try to get one, it says there is a surcharge, so get one, it says there is a surcharge , so you get one, it says there is a surcharge, so you have to pay more than you normally would. that means it is busy. the paper is claiming that the drivers have been colluding with each other to gather in areas and switch off. then when the surge goes up, they go and pick up. i admire the entrepreneurial spirit here. maybe it is good that people
10:48 pm
without a stable contract do something like this. do you think it isa something like this. do you think it is a good idea? i don't use it. how come? i cannot use my iphone. maybe you should use it because it seems these guys can play the system better than uber can. i suppose it is something they would do. if you are being rinsed by the company you might want to do it back. there has been a lot of protest about their pay and conditions. uber dom have said that it was based on drivers who were in many cases untrue. —— uber have said. patients living in the same street getting different nhs care. this is about gp surgeries. we have heard so much about not getting enough appointments and all the rest. they are saying you can have a different experience even if you are in the same postcode. i must admit this is
10:49 pm
an old story made new. are we in august yet? it postcode lottery story. you live in the same street, you go to a different gp. because budgets are controlled by different bodies, different clinical commissioning groups, they will offer different levels of care. it's obvious. you have to find somebody on the board of a local authority —— on the board of a local authority —— on the board of a local authority —— on the board of a local authority. two bodies would offer different services. that is part of the model. it's true. but it is an oddity of the system where you —— if you happen to live on a border. it is a good story but a whipped up story. your newspaper, the guardian, which would never have a whipped up story. never. this is about tycoons and empty homes. a solid piece of journalism which came out because
10:50 pm
there was a freedom of information request everybody got. did a straight story about how many empty homes there were in the kensington area. that was where —— that is where the grenfell tower is. there was a much morejuicy where the grenfell tower is. there was a much more juicy story about russian oligarchs and sheiks an tv executives having empty homes in the area. it is a good story. does that go along withjeremy corbyn's idea that people don't have housing and they seize these properties. will that happen? it is difficult in practice. what this story does is placed into a narrative of us versus them. the idea that these people are so them. the idea that these people are so far removed and it's so unfair. when you see the names you think, do they need a home they are not going
10:51 pm
to use? when lots of the grenfell tower survivors still haven't been rehoused or they have rejected their offers, itjust rehoused or they have rejected their offers, it just puts rehoused or they have rejected their offers, itjust puts more pressure on the council to sort it out. it was a huge story. still being covered. are there any updates on how many residents are still without properties? i think there are 150 resident families. 46 were made offers. very few accepted. it is to do with the quality of accommodation. i think they are in temporary accommodation at the moment. it is the kind of, do they wa nt to moment. it is the kind of, do they want to move out of the area question. it hasn't been handled well by the council. which is why they have relinquished their responsibility to do with it. but it isa responsibility to do with it. but it is a difficult time for anybody to live through all of that. let's move on to the financial times. the eurozone growth accelerate after populist electoral threat receipts. we are not sure if it is an
10:52 pm
acceleration. in august acceleration. in august acceleration. the eurozone expansion is at 2.1%. britain is atjust 2%. it isa is at 2.1%. britain is atjust 2%. it is a tiny advance. somebody said there is increasing evidence of a diversion. that makes the headlines real. the populist threat has receded. le pen, all of these guys did not break through. but we still have poland and hungary unwinding the constitutional protections in europe. it probably hasn't reseeded entirely. are they trying to make this intoi brexit entirely. are they trying to make this into i brexit story? entirely. are they trying to make this intol brexit story?|j entirely. are they trying to make this into l brexit story? i think this into a brexit story? i think there is an undercurrent. at the same time these are just figures. the growth has gone from 0.5 to 0.6. obviously good for the eurozone. but we can't really read too much into that. absolutely. metro, the kind of
10:53 pm
picture you do not want to see before going off on holiday. are you off toa before going off on holiday. are you off to a european airport any time soon? you might be in trouble. british tourist jetting soon? you might be in trouble. british touristjetting to the continent are facing queues of up to four hours. airport hell for the brits. what you make of it? it's terrible because i am going to somewhere in europe later this month. they have tightened up the schengen area checks because of attacks. and there was a plain breakdown. those two things meant there were very long queues. —— aeroplane breakdown. new controls have been brought in. sounds like they did not have enough staff to deal with it. it was a busy weekend. not really to do with brexit. but because we are not in the schengen free movement area, it does mean that the brits are being hit by this, i guess. it looks like you
10:54 pm
will get the queues regardless of being in or out. i'm just glad will get the queues regardless of being in or out. i'mjust glad my next holiday is in britain. i will avoid this. very sensible. let's move on to the story of the day. great british ripped off in the sun newspaper. bbc bosses are facing accusations that their new mary berry cooking show is just a copy of the great baking bake off. —— great british bake off. obviously it has gone to channel 4 and the bbc has a new cooking programme. do you watch it? i don't. i am happy that mary berry will be back on tv. she is a bit of a national treasure. for £75 million? i think channel 4 probably
10:55 pm
have a reason to be slightly worried. there has been a comment from the bbc press office. they have been swift in their response. they have said that it is not —— they have said that it is not —— they have said that they are different shows as those watching wilsey. great. it is technically true. -- those watching will see. no matter how much you spend on a format, you cannot stop mary berry appearing on the bbc. they have said that there might be some baking in the bbc series. i don't think you can own the concept of baking. if they get the concept of baking. if they get the whole cast they might have trouble. if it isjust mary they will probably be safe. she won't be doing something like the krypton factor. there will be other tv programmes. thank you very much
