in the guardian, the boss of ryanair says disrupting flights between the uk and eu will be the easiest and quickest way to stick it to the british. ceo michael o'leary is quoted saying, theresa may should stop drinking sake injapan and return to handle brexit talks. the new york times has the headline, the danger in trump talking to north korea. an analyst on east asian affairs says north korea is increasing tensions to pressure the us into direct talks with kim jong—un, and describes it all as a big trap. and finally, in the times, italian prosecco makers and british dentists locked in a row. it come after dentists warned of the so—called ‘prosecco smile‘ — they claim it's a triple whammy of carbonation, sweetness and alcohol that can rot teeth. the italian agriculture minsters has denounced the comments as fake news. better put yours away, no more present —— prosecco this morning.
i'll leave it in the green room. with me is alpesh patel who is ceo of praefinium partners. two more monster storms to hit the same area as harvey? yes, apparently they have not seen the worst of it yet. i am going to say something the president might like, truthfully. if there is one part of the world that can handle this, it is texas, the united states. you had it here first, i don't know if he will change his view about the bbc, there is that slight glimmer of good news in that it is one of the wealthiest states and countries. you wouldn't wish this upon anyone. they have not seen the worst of it. the chemical plant reminds me of fukushima in japan. who on earth does not have power backups for flooding, given you are in a flooding zone? hopefully some heads will be rolling
for the one. interesting stories picked up by the washington post, thousands of people without drinking water, and some employees are circling their alligator farm after it became flooded, holding guns. you see the storm and devastation, when you start to break it down and look at all of the consequences from this, looking at the dangers coming at them from every angle...“ this, looking at the dangers coming at them from every angle... if i was to put a slightly positive angle to it, $6 billion is probably what he will get through congress. competitor katrina, the loss of life, we don't know the exact figures, but it looks far smaller. they seem much better prepared than they were however many years ago that katrina happened. there are
some upside to managing this and how this is progressing. looking at the floods in india and asia, nowhere near as positive as the way they are handling it out there. talking about brexit, perhaps not so many people helping each other. we saw a very cold attitude yesterday, the words, no progress from michelle barnier. not what we wanted to hear. anyone who remembers their economics, if they did economics, they will know that there is this concept of the prisoner ‘s dilemma, two people coming toa prisoner ‘s dilemma, two people coming to a decision together with two rational parties. we have got two rational parties. we have got two rational parties. the only way
it works out is if there are some degree of empathy and care between the two. that seems to be in low supply. you could very easily, economics could forecast it, you could end up with a mutually satisfactory deal for both sides. that is what i am putting my money on, i'm afraid. you can throw as many people as you want at it, but we are going to run out of time. we will only just we are going to run out of time. we will onlyjust get we are going to run out of time. we will only just get the we are going to run out of time. we will onlyjust get the northern ireland border sorted, that will be about it. that is one area where they said... we know there is empathy on both sides there. where there isn't empathy, they will probably come out with the worst solution for both sides. it is just the clock ticking. talking about rational negotiations, is this rational negotiations, is this rational from the boss of ryanair?
he is saying that you could disrupt aviation, in his words, stick it to the wreckage. he says there needs to bea the wreckage. he says there needs to be a timetable in place, that the eu could hold the uk to ransom over ﬂight could hold the uk to ransom over flight schedules. it looks like armageddon. it will be cut off, no flights between the two countries. it will be easier to get to north korea than to the eu. perhaps ryanair should shut up shop now. if the ceo is panicking this much, i should think they would be in liquidation within 12 months. great management, mr ceo. this is not how you run a company. it is the kind of bombastic commentary you would expect from him. it is free
advertising, really. idon't expect from him. it is free advertising, really. i don't see the rationality of him jumping up and down, panicking his shareholders, investors and customers, who will probably say, may be our next summer holiday won't be booked through ryanair. he did say he did not really believe there would be that disruption to flights. it is just a headline. i worry about ceos sometimes. the danger in donald trump talking to north korea? yes, he has said that the north korean leader is a petulant boy and i don't wa nt to leader is a petulant boy and i don't want to talk to him. some have said thatis want to talk to him. some have said that is good news, because some have said if he does talk to him and he has got nuclear weapons, god knows what will happen. what i think we needin what will happen. what i think we need in the west is that, given guam is what the russians and chinese what the americans out off, we could
have done with a handy local dictator to put some pressure on the chinese and russians and say, we have got someone to do our bidding. they want to reduce american power and see americans squirm. sadly, we got rid of all the dictators around the world. we have nobody to rely on. believe it or not, dictators to serve a purpose. iam on. believe it or not, dictators to serve a purpose. i am not longing for the good old days of dictatorships, it would have been really handy right now when the russians and the chinese have got their little bit caters on puppet strings. if donald trump talks to kimjong—un, that strings. if donald trump talks to kim jong—un, that would be strings. if donald trump talks to kimjong—un, that would be hugely... donald trump will tweet, and kim jong—un will keep on firing missiles. the north koreans want
money, look at how many billions the americans have been channelling to bribe north korea not to set off their nuclear weapons... the chinese and the russians want america out of the region. what do we get in return in the west, if the americans to reduce a bit of their power over there? why should they bribe kim jong—un in any event. there? why should they bribe kim jong-un in any event. after that, we need a drink, but don't let it be prosecco. british dentists are upsetting the prosecco industry in italy because they have said that it can rot your teeth quite badly.|j can't believe how badly annoyed the italians got over this. you can't listen to dentists about dental
hygiene, they will tell you to eat broccoli and drink water. it is called the prosecco smile, apparently dentists transported at ten paces. you get a haze to look about your face if you have been drinking prosecco. i can't leave it... somebody who likes prosecco is not necessarily going to turn to a pale ale. it is our retaliation for brexit, but is what it is. it's a conspiracy. thank you very much, stay with us on bbc world news. hello again. today marks the first day of the meteorological autumn, so i thought we would start with a summary of summer. a decent start. temperatures soared up to 35 celsius back in june, but since then it has been rather disappointing.
a cool second—half, especially in august. the first few weeks terrible and quite wet at times too. this morning we get off to a chilly start of the day. out in the countryside, temperatures down to about 3—4 degrees in the coldest spots first thing, so a chill in the air. apart from that there will be plenty of morning sunshine. most areas having a dry morning as well. but into the early afternoon the cloud will bubble up, especially in eastern parts of the uk. a scattering of showers begins to develop. a largely dry picture in scotland. a few showers towards the borders and certainly into eastern counties of england. those showers get going. some of them will be heavy. thunder mixed in, but pretty well scattered. in the sunshine, wherever you are during the day on friday, there will be pleasant sunshine and it should feel reasonable, with temperatures generally into the high teens to the low 20s and a lightish north—westerly breeze in parts of the country. during the evening, those showers begin to fade away slowly. the second half of the night should become dry, and with clearing skies it will be another chilly night. so to start off the weekend again temperatures down to about 11—12 degrees.
colder than that in the countryside. about 3—4 in the coldest spots. what about the weekend weather prospects? definitely a weekend of two halves. saturday with the best of it. sunny spells for the most part. but on sunday, after a bright start, particularly in the east, we start to see a band of rain moving across the uk. here is the pressure chart for the weekend. high pressure initially. there's this zone of wet weather moving into the second half of the weekend, with strengthening winds. in more detail, saturday is a decent day, with sunshine. dry for the vast majority. temperatures doing pretty well. high teens to low 20s, with light winds. it will feel pleasant in that september sunshine. most temperatures towards south—east england. we will see this rain encroach overnight into northern ireland. after a bright start to the day across eastern scotland, much of england will see cloud thicken up. outbreaks of rain moving in and it will turn breezy. temperatures 18—19 degrees typically. that's your latest weather. hello. this is breakfast, with naga munchetty and jon kay. the raf becomes the first british military service to allow women to serve in every role. from today, they can apply for combat duties on the frontline. the army and royal marines
will follow next year. good morning, it's friday the ist of september. also this morning: the birmingham bin strike is back on. some workers have been issued with redundancy notices and there are fears that mountains of waste will start piling up on the streets again. customers are told to "suck it up", as the eu bans vacuum cleaners which are too noisy or powerful.
