according to the independent the british people have turned their backs on brexit following a poll carried out by the paper which show a majority of the uk public want to remain in the european union. the telegraph business pages say embattled airline rya nair threatened to delay pilots holiday allowance as the company scrambles to keep on top of its flight cancellation crisis. the guardian financial pages report on moves by the european union to rewrite tax rules for tech companies such as google,facebook and amazon in order to increase revenues for eu governments. and finally, what could possibly be playing on the palace play—list? it has now been confirmed that the queen has an i—pod after one was spotted in balmoral castle and seen in this photo in the times. its believed it may well be the same one gifted to her by former us president barack obama back in 2009. she needs an upgrade! with me is iain anderson, who's founder of the international communications agency, cicero group. good morning. let's start with donald trump and the war of words
with kim jong—un. to world donald trump and the war of words with kimjong—un. to world leaders at exchanging verbal blows bash it is like the playground. it has become cartoon like if it wasn't so serious. the language on both sides, the rhetoric gets ramped up and up and up. if actions by the north koreans get up and up by donald trump's comments about destroying north korea and more sanctions to come over north korea, we are going to see, i think, is yet another response probably this weekend and they are now talking about and h—bomb tests in the pacific. it seems that markets are just starting to react to this, they goodness they
are because this is getting ramped up are because this is getting ramped up to are because this is getting ramped uptoa are because this is getting ramped up to a point of tension in that we cannot come back from. where can we go from here? the sanctions do not seem to be having the desired effect. the real key to coming years is down remains whether or not donald trump can do something with china because, frankly, if china chokes off any supply chain to north korea, this will start to change but he does not seem to be able to do that at the moment and he is not making the south korean people comfortable. you know, where this goes goodness goes. don't the threat simply play into pyongyang's hand because it justifies simply play into pyongyang's hand because itjustifies their desire for a nuclear defence? if they feel
under threat... for a nuclear defence? if they feel under threat. .. when you have the suppose it leader of the free world talking about totally destroying the country, how ever crazy, how it is a country, how ever crazy, how it is a country is supposed to respond?‘ feeling that theresa may will lay out some clearer guidelines about what the uk is preparing to do to meet the bill of 20 billion euros. i had someone from king ‘s college london and he was saying this looks like she's succeeded in the first rounds of negotiations with her cabinet. in the times of london yesterday, i used about 600 words. her current foreign secretary used 4000 words last weekend which made
people and business very, very uncomfortable. she will mention 5000 words in this foreign speech and the major focus appears to be transition. i think that will make people feel more comfortable. what i do not think this is going to do is move us do not think this is going to do is move us into the next phase of the negotiations. i think, move us into the next phase of the negotiations. ithink, at move us into the next phase of the negotiations. i think, at best, move us into the next phase of the negotiations. ithink, at best, we will be moving the conversation into the new deal late december, maybe not till the early part of the year so the high—stakes politics continues both in the eu and uk domestically. the foreign affairs spokesperson to angela merkel said... he was speaking personally, he said he did not think brexit will happen and that this will be the end
of theresa may and i wonder if that kind of thinking in berlin is dangerous. even if they did not want it to happen, they should be preparing for it to happen. there is an argument that angela merkel should have given david cameron much more back in the spring of 2016, which could have avoided brexit in the first place. we will see what happens on sunday in the german elections... have you not spotted, still 30% of germans who have not finally made their mind up. remember what has happened in other elections. it will probably be angela merkel and she remains central to the process. the germans i think central to the process. the germans ithink in central to the process. the germans i think in dinnia to misunderstand the dynamic that created the desire for brexit. —— continued to
misunderstand. more people in the uk now want to stay in the eu and reversed the brexit decision. just. this survey says 52% in.|j reversed the brexit decision. just. this survey says 52% in. i surprised at the bbc looking at polls and talking to experts! exactly is you say, this is within the margin of error. the real reason that britain remains so divided on brexit is because it is divided on brexit. we saw that come through on a general election back in june. saw that come through on a general election back injune. there is also
an economic effect. let's face it, asa an economic effect. let's face it, as a result, stuff is about 20% more expensive. the economics has a political effect but i do not think this poll tells us anything we did not know before. britain is very divided on the subject. ryanair - as someone involved in communications at— someone involved in communications at — how well has ryanair communicated... what did michael use earlier, a boo—boo. communicated... what did michael use earlier, a boo-boo. he was not that keen in yesterday 's meeting to take oi'i keen in yesterday 's meeting to take on the media the way he usually takes it on. this was a mess. my advice is to stand up and say we got it wrong and this is what we will do to fix it. he has normally been quite good at that. he has been
friendly to customers... much friendlier than normal, if you do not like it don't fly with us... it isa not like it don't fly with us... it is a big mess. the question is, who is a big mess. the question is, who is gone in ryanair for screwing up in this decision? people will remember this from quite sometime. share price not down massively. they did hita share price not down massively. they did hit a high share price not down massively. they did hita high in share price not down massively. they did hit a high in august. it is now 16.5 but markets still like the cheap airlines. and they like him because it is in europe's biggest airlines. she read tourek ipods and the queen? i think she almost certainly uses an ipod. —— due you
think the queen uses an ipod? i was coming past the apple store in london, the iphone eight is launching. 0ther london, the iphone eight is launching. other phones are available. no queue outside. they are all ordering online. those that can are all ordering online. those that ca n afford are all ordering online. those that can afford it. that is it from us. have a great weekend. thank you. it is slowly taking that rain further east during the day. breezy and wet in northern ireland, some outbreaks of rain edging into the west of scotland. the bulk of the uk is dry. chilly to begin the day, but for many of us, plenty of sunshine. remember, some mist and fog around. east anglia, south—eastern england are most prone to that before it clears away. it should not take long. along with the rain in the west, the wind picks up. especially in the coast and hills. moving away from northern ireland, the rain goes into scotland and wales. more light and patchy as it does so.
leaving parts of eastern england and the south—east dry. perhaps some sunny spells. temperatures, 19. with the wind and rain, it will feel quite cool. as we go on through friday night, this weather system stalls. there is cloud and drizzle affecting parts of england and wales. that is the start of saturday. much more mild on saturday morning. the big picture for the weekend. an area of low pressure to the west of us. there will be a weather front approaching from the west. the wind is picking up on saturday. increasingly windy in the west. a gale developing later on saturday. this area of cloud and patchy rain covering england and wales going north during the day. all of scotland apart from the north keeping sunshine. southern england breaking into sunshine during the day. perhaps some sunny spells in northern ireland. a bit of warmth. this weather system coming in from the atlantic, some uncertainty about how far east it will go during sunday. some sunny spells either side of it. easing winds. we will keep you updated on that. we are following hurricane maria,
which on sunday should just miss the turks and caicos islands. it looks like it will eventually push north further away from the bahamas. hello, this is breakfast, with naga munchetty and charlie stayt. breaking the brexit deadlock. the prime minister heads to florence for a key speech on leaving the european union. but a proposed two—year transitional deal could cost the uk £18 billion. good morning, it's friday, 22nd september. also this morning: mentally deranged. the north korean leader kimjong—un launches a stinging attack on donald trump as he promises the us president will pay dearly for his recent speech at the un.
