10:45 pm
these are heard from p been saying these are ordinary civilians. the question is, what is going to happen next? what we are not expecting was this extraordinary interview on rt. these quys extraordinary interview on rt. these guys with this fairly implausible claim that we have been thinking about going to salisbury for a long time, ourfriends have been suggesting it... the clock, the old est of suggesting it... the clock, the oldest of its time still working. it's extraordinary, one, that they we re it's extraordinary, one, that they were revealed, too, the look of them. it looks like bond villains, blonde, quite shifty. what was interesting about this is why they we re interesting about this is why they were unveiled by vladimir putin, why the kremlin allowed them to go before the cameras. was it, as andrew woody, the former ambassador to russia, is it that there was a element of punishment because they made to but so many traces —— left
10:46 pm
so made to but so many traces —— left so many traces behind? the fact is, it is not likely britain is good able to get the knack because russia does not have a track record of action guiding its agents. it's very important uk authorities are seen to reduce evidence. what is very important is that it's notjust we wa nt important is that it's notjust we want to fingerthem. important is that it's notjust we want to finger them. it's got to be 11,000 hours of cctv, as if you are producing evidence that would warrant a charge, and i think that is what has happened. and on that basis, i find is what has happened. and on that basis, ifind it is what has happened. and on that basis, i find it very strange the authorities in russia have chosen to, as henry's said, but these guys up. if you guys were actually prosecuting counsel, i think he would rather be on prosecution and defence, wouldn't you ? would rather be on prosecution and defence, wouldn't you? it begs the question what happens next? these guys question what happens next? these guys are question what happens next? these guys are not coming back here
10:47 pm
anytime soon. the world... what does britain, or indeed commit any of the allies do about this? and also, to be fair, i'm trying to undo what is in it for prudent. if putin wants to be counted in the world, which is what i think this is all about, what is it different if he is seen to the strike —— strike the state and a more reasonable way? this wine from the editor, the interviewer has spoken to newsnight, and she a p pa re ntly spoken to newsnight, and she apparently has asked the pair if they could prove they were to salisbury cathedral and they said, yes, there is a photograph and that has not yet happened. she is showing
10:48 pm
newsnight that she pushed back on their claims... that's the implication she has. she also revealed these men were sweating, they were nervous, she had to give them an alcoholic drink. i do not think people are going before by that. rt is dismissed by many as propaganda. these men are probably going to disappear back into obscurity and hopefully retire and live a long life, but who knows? you just don't know in modern russia. that khartoum thatcherite? —— that khartoum thatcherite? you went to his salisbury cathedral and did not bring me back a key ring ora and did not bring me back a key ring or a bookmark? let's move on. digby, the ft. it will come as no surprise to our regular viewers that i have been criticising the ft for two
10:49 pm
years now. . . been criticising the ft for two years now... they used to do a lovely profile back in the day. so what? the one thing he always nobody ft. what? the one thing he always nobody ft, their opinions... some of the best in britain. i think it's excellent. but the front page, you always assumed, was balanced and i always assumed, was balanced and i always had little phrase when they we re always had little phrase when they were writing nice things about me, which was, if you're quoted in the front pages of the ft believe me, you did say it. what has happened to the ft in this post referendum world, they have sold their soul to the remain camp. the editor even got and honour from france from this.|j do and honour from france from this.” do not think it was for services to remain. just on what mr carney has
10:50 pm
said... all i would ask isjust for once, somewhere else, can we have something which is about something other than "we are going to hell in a handbasket? " other than "we are going to hell in a handbasket?‘ there is a point as well. the actual content is this is the governor of the bank of england saying if there is a hard brexit... this is the same man saying there's going to be debt to the first one, a plague of locusts and for all the problems that come after the referendum... that's the point, henry, i wanted you to pick up on. there are those who would say, the comedy other warnings. they have not happened. they had not happened for several reasons, not least the fact that we have not left. he took very
10:51 pm
swift action reducing interest rates shortly after the referendum... that's not what they said at the time. this is a movable feast. if you look at some of the details of this piece, if we have a disorderly brexit, the that immigration may increase for the first time since 1994 and if a lot of this is about reducing the population or... should bea reducing the population or... should be a politician! because you are not inserted the question. he did not promise hellfire and damnation. he is at it again! can i get one line in on is at it again! can i get one line inona is at it again! can i get one line in on a before you move on? it would be better than the banks assume was to do not draw something? i would say, yes, i get that. where
10:52 pm
i think where we are gradually moving towards is europe is working onto the fax a hard brexit, i do not believe the bank of england is right in this, but never the less, a hard brexit is going to hurt germany. germany run europe. what is going to happen is that they are going to go, if we have a hard brexit, is going to hurt europe as well. that is why don't think, there it would not be one but... take us to the i. it is linked to a degree in brexit territory, although a specific aspect of what might. that is right. we're talking, the here... some people who are concerned about where it might go if we do leave the european union, they are concerned that our food and our standards may not be as protected as they have been by the european union and they
10:53 pm
consider in this piece that the ban on gm foods that we have across europe may be watered down if we brexit. some of the scientists are asking our government to allow a form of gene editing which is currently outlawed by the eu. the eu effectively outlawed it injuly. however, in this piece, it claims that this highly promising new technology as the defender to generate huge amounts of money and alleviate world hunger at the same time. it does not say he is going to earn or generate or he was going to rea p earn or generate or he was going to reap the benefits of these huge amounts of money. i know a lot of the activists are concerned these innovations will be patented to the detriment of those countries. those who should benefit from robust crops. one of the problems europe has always suffered from his farmers, they are so amazingly powerful europe have anything to protect its market, it will do. what
10:54 pm
i have always found very upsetting about european union policy on food is that it is a very selfish policy. and how dare people in brussels start passing laws that prevent the developing world and the starving world from having access to volume food. what i would agree were brussels has got a point is we have no right, actually, to start playing god. and in that respect, there is a world of difference between how do we regulate the use of technology into production from we are on the high ground here, we are particularly agricultural society and you're not going to... really, really important to say this was not driven by the european commission. it's been driven by the lobby groups, by people who did not want what we used to call frankenstein foods. i want to spend one minute on the front of the mirror. the daily
10:55 pm
mirror does not often get itself onto our choices. i really was pleased about this, because getting north korea to open up is a success, especially for the families in north and south korea who were separated two generations ago. i noticed that south korea are going to have indication or something in north korea. lovely to see. i noticed his parade of military hardware did not include ballistic missiles. wonderful. this is progress. 0r include ballistic missiles. wonderful. this is progress. or the giving near to put this on his front page which reaches to a different sort of society as to what you would normally expect... that's what he wa nts. normally expect... that's what he wants. he is presenting to the world. these people are not free. of course they are not free but do i he loves it if some people start talking about the place? the glare
