"weather extremes" instead. critics point to the incoming trump administration as having a stark impact on the language used around climate change. in the guardian financial pages, the booming economy in the city of london and rising house prices has pushed the uk's wealth past the £10 trillion mark. the lloyds bank research says this could help fuel the current debate around inequality in britain. le figaro reports on french president emanuel macron who is facing a backlash over plans to create an office of "first lady" for his wife brigitte. critics feel such a move, at a time of public spending cuts would need to be sanctioned by a referendum. more than 220,000 people have signed an online petition against the plan. the telegraph leads with comments made by a former head of a uk government electronic spy agency who said british children should be encouraged to spend more time online to improve their digital skills. robert hannigan said

it is a "patriotic duty" for the next generation to improve their cyber skills to help protect the country. the times looks at plans by the uk home office to scrap landing cards for millions of travellers from outside europe. some have questioned the move as it could threaten to undermine border security. and finally, according to research, p i lot— less planes could save airlines around $35 billion a year. supporters say current fly—by—wire remote controlled flights are safe however a majority of passengers surveyed said they would refuse to travel on a pilot—less flight. so let's begin. with us is nina trentmann from the wall streetjournal. welcome. good morning, nina. there isa welcome. good morning, nina. there is a lot to get through. let's start with the change in language around climate change. they are calling at
5:47 am
extreme weather patterns, now. but the other line, reducing greenhouse gases, they are being told to call it build soil organic matter. it does not seem to have the same urgency. i would agree with that. it sounds like a temporary thing, too. as you said, our resilience to weather extremes, instead of climate change adoption, that is giving the impression that this is a minute will go away. that is contradicted by research and scientists saying in the end is a fundamental process changing the and our world. this is in line with other things we have seen from government departments in the us is the arrival of the trump administration. the environmental protection agency deleted parts of the existing body of websites that was there from the 0bama administration, that was pointing out the changes in terms of climate
5:48 am
change. so i guess this is another sign that in the end the trump administration wants to put its mark on this and say, climate change is not really exist. some might read this and say what is the big deal? it isjust the changing of the terms. and they still do the job or pursue this issue, does it really matter. —— big deal. but this is significant, is that? i guess all of these things amount to something. in these things amount to something. in the end, if we have the us government that is still the most powerful government of the world, saying to be honest, climate change is not exist, and we doubled the world —— we don't want to use the word, this could have implications for other countries in the world. it gives other countries the excuse to say the us is saying it, so why should we use the term climate
5:49 am
change? it makes it difficult in the global push to reduce emissions and to cut down on emissions and save, what a waste for us to create more sustainable energy? reasonable, other european countries and china have committed to these things. let's look at the bricks and stocks lifting britain's valley to have a £10 trillion. this brings up the inequality in wages, the notion that, according to previous studies, a 10th of adults own half of the nation's wealth in this country. that is a shocking statistic. it is. but this is a trend that we have seen accelerating the last years since the financial crisis, because of the strategies launched by the bank of england. we seen a similar effect in europe with their
5:50 am
corporate bond buying programmes. this is of course indicative of a trend that we see in other parts of the world, like in the us, where we have a growing divide between the super rich and the relatively poor. the question is how do we go forward ? the question is how do we go forward? what the question is how do we go forward ? what is the question is how do we go forward? what is interesting is this data refers to 2006 in. we will see whether the brexit vote and declining house prices in some areas, the slowdown of house price increases, whether that has had an impact. —— 2016. we will find out if this is the maximum that british wealth has got to. this is interesting, the front page of le figaro, and emmanuel macron‘s wife, brigitte. he would like to bring in an official position for her, first lady, like the united states. and
5:51 am
there seems to be a lot of boxes —— opposition? yes, over 220,000 people say they don't like the idea. the fa ct say they don't like the idea. the fact that he was so great office is in line with what he said before the election. but in france, as you said, you have this issue around budget cuts, which will have to be sustained. you also have this issue around nepotism and around politicians grating posts for their relatives, which gives this a bit of a taste. will he listen, though? he has a majority in parliament. yes, he has. but he needs to get across that this is that he is bringing through change and reform. so that will lead to some reconsideration of the plan. this is an excellent, sally and i, we have got young people, tweenagers, in a home, who like to spend time on computers. this story suggested they be allowed
5:52 am
to use than morons —— spend more time online, because they could defend the country. yes, this is from the head of the gchq, who said make sure that your children are spending time online, because otherwise we fall behind other countries. it depends on the way you spend your time online. i don't know whether spending, you know, that whether spending, you know, that whether your kids are spending time... or learning how to hack. that is an interesting skill from a national perspective, but if they had to that in on instagram on facebook, i'm not sure that is subbing national security. —— not sure that is helping national security. here is something that has been a pleasant 50 years in so far as border control is concerned. this
5:53 am
article points out important information will no longer be taken from people coming into the uk. this is about concerns that certain information, like where people are staying, what kind of hotels they are staying at, should not be available through security forces. the question is of course, in the end, i have not seen dater on how much this stuff on the landing cards is actually use. —— data. much this stuff on the landing cards is actually use. -- data. go back to climate change, as well, you could save paper, as well. it seems like this is not as an issue in the uk. i know from my time in china, when i lived there, there was in systems on the filling in of the landing and exit cards. let's's move on briefly to pilotless planes. would you get on—board? to pilotless planes. would you get on-board? i think i would. assuming
5:54 am
iam not on-board? i think i would. assuming i am not the only one, yes i would. we have that story a few days of the turkish pilot who landed a plane when the whole screen had smashed and he said everybody on the plane, without the human being, this would have been a disaster. that does not put you off? no. i believe in progress and new technology. they also believe in humans having a role in this. so guess the is notjust you have no pilots at all, but rather to have one pilot, and then automation helping. we have delivered their, nina. thank you for it joining delivered their, nina. thank you for itjoining us. what do you think? send us your thoughts. —— we have two leave it there. —— to. well, no sign of summer for tuesday, or indeed the rest of this week. it's going to be very mixed.
5:55 am
it was certainly quite mixed on monday. this was yesterday. some sunshine there in cambridgeshire. we also had some rain at henley—on—thames in 0xfordshire. tuesday will be no different. a real mixed bag on the way. brollies at the ready. you can see how extensive the cloud is right now across the southern half of the uk. through the night, rain from the south—west across the midlands into lincolnshire. even here there could be downpours and cracks of thunder. in the north it will be clearer. quite a stark temperature contrast tonight. these are the towns and cities. look at the rural spots. six degrees in southern scotland, even in the sheltered glens, barely above freezing. tuesday's forecast. we are close to an area of low pressure in france, to the south of us. those of us in the south are quite close to that so this is where most of the downpours will occur. in the morning, some rain i think across the midlands into the north. scotland and northern ireland will be fine, with sunshine and the odd shower.
5:56 am
the clouds will really get going across the south during the latter part of the morning into the afternoon, and we're in for some downpours. downpours means we will have sunshine, downpours, then sunshine again. a real mixed bag across the south on tuesday. most of the heavy downpours are in the south—east, east anglia, eventually into lincolnshire as well. lighter rain across northern england. better for cumbria, belfast, glasgow and edinburgh. the lowlands of scotland might end up with a fine, sunny day. feeling pleasantly warm as well. how are we doing compared to the rest of europe? not too good. 20 degrees in london and paris, we match 0slo. most other major centres are quite a bit warmer than that. moscow at 23. let's have a look at wednesday. that low pressure that was across france, remember, has actually moved to the north. quite an unusual direction for a low pressure system to take, tracking from south to north.
5:57 am
usually they go like that, this one's going south to north. we're still closer to the low there, across east anglia and the south—east, so again, downpours in store on wednesday. look at wales. wales, northern england and scotland are in the clear, in for a fine day, but the weather will turn unsettled in other areas and i think some of us will get some rain towards the end of the week. bye— bye. hello. this is breakfast, with louise minchin and dan walker. more than a0 maternity units in england closed their doors to new admissions at some point last year. labour blames a lack of midwives. the government says it's misleading to blame staff shortages. good morning.
5:58 am
it's tuesday the 8th of august. also this morning: sickness at the world athletics championships. yes, organisers here confirm a number of cases of gastroenteritis at one team hotel.
