8:05 pm
praised for its open and rapid response, is taking no chances. and even in the last few years fergus walsh, bbc news. when terry was doing his thing and i was doing my thing, we'd still meet up and were still very close friends. and i valued terry's opinion probably more than any other. he was very, very astute our health editor hugh pym and just say, "mike, is at heathrow airport have not quite got this right" where the first direct flight or whatever, i would say from wuhan to london since that to him as well. less easy to convince public health england terry that he was wrong. one of my favourite terry characters is in the holy grail where he plays since public health england introduced its precautionary the young prince who is standing measures has arrived tonight. so hugh, what can passengers expect? there and wants to get married... no, he doesn't want to get married to princess lucky. the father comes along and says, "you're going to get married and that's it," and, rachel, yes that flight arrived here "no, no," and "one day, lad, all this will be yours." "well, who cares? " just after six o'clock this evening. that was terry's kind of wonderful drip. we can only assume that the passengers have progressed through the terminal but crucially, having had a meeting with public health officials as they arrived at the gate, there are no tests going on but they were taken to a court area and deliberately chose the terminal thatis that was even before python, so we and deliberately chose the terminal that is away from the main bulk of the passengers and they will be

8:07 pm
and just for that flight from wuhan terry and myself. everybody was and just for that flight from wuhan and ready they say, to step things just laughing all the time, there up and ready they say, to step things up in the future. so they are not was nobody democrat never a dull saying that they suggest that there moment. we would either be after is the official concern at a high someone who is doing funny. but level, it is putting in place the every little detail of one cosmic precautionary measures now but they performance there was thought out, do leave open the possibility of nobody was just... terry was... monitoring other flights at other airports coming in at other chinese destinations around the uk, which would be a bigger operation performance there was thought out, nobody was just. .. terry was... when certainly and we have heard just i met nobody was just. .. terry was... when imet him, nobody was just. .. terry was... when i met him, all i remember was the from the last few minutes or so, the torrent of words that came from him. world health organisation which has he's spewing ideas. it seemed been meeting to discuss the virus situation a public emergency has particularly cruel that that was deferred the decision until tomorrow what was robbed of him. just so we will not hear any more from unbelievable, really and it happened them and tonight, if they decide to do that, they would possibly put the quite quickly. around the time we did the big zero to show and i british government into a different remember him having a bit of trouble position of may be tightening up because one or two of the sketches, these monitoring procedures that we he could not get the word out, he have just been talking about.
8:08 pm
was always very professional and able to do that. and so he to other we will speak to the professor who sketches, when he was playing a different character, he could do isa we will speak to the professor who is a disease doctor and the vaccine them perfectly well. i wondered what centre at the school of hygiene. to was going on there, i think stay with us for that. something was beginning, the connections were beginning to use at democrats in the united states have begun presenting their arguments on the second day of the impeachment trial of president donald trump. last night senators were in session that time and yes, fairly soon after for 13 hours debating the rules of the tiral, that, his dementia increased and he including whether the democrats was a symptom of dementia where he lost the ability to communicate. and it was very sad to see, especially ata time it was very sad to see, especially at a time where you knew he wanted the democrats adam schiff has been to say something. desperately trying to say something. desperately trying to get it out. he was a man of words and he was brilliant with words, speaking in the past half hour and said the president had clearly words he used for entertainment or abused his powers and obstructed debate or discussion, that was his justice in his dealings with the ukraine ina life in writing as well. the fact justice in his dealings with the ukraine in a bid to boost his reelection chances. that by the end, already within the the documents and testimony that we we re the documents and testimony that we were able to collect paints an last few years, she couldn't really
8:09 pm
overwhelming and damning picture of the president's efforts to use his speak is... it isjust last few years, she couldn't really speak is... it is just unbelievably office to corru ptly cruel. you described him as a the president's efforts to use his office to corruptly solicit foreign aid in his reelection and official renaissance comedian, a polymath. military acts to support it. over which part of terry will you really the coming days, you will hear miss most? i will miss the sociable terry i... sorry. remarkably consistent evidence of president trump's corrupt scheme and cover—up. when you focus on the evidence uncovered during the investigation, you will appreciate that there is no severe dispute about the facts underlying the president's conduct. and this is why you will hear the president's lawyers make the astounding... claim he was just a wonderful companion, a terrific companion, so i shall... that you cannot impeach a president yes, i shall miss our trips to the bar. for abusing the powers of his i shall miss our pints. and i shall miss our sessions at setting the world to rights. office. because they cannot he had his view, i had my view, um, but he was a most seriously contest that that is wonderfulfriend and, as i say, just a terrific person exactly, exactly what he did.
8:10 pm
to be with, and i won't be the only person who says this. he had an enormous number of friends a two thirds majority is needed to who loved him dearly. impeach him from office, the the headlines on bbc news... democrats would be trying to the chinese city of wuhan closes convince lindsey graham. he said public transport over the virus that the president's conduct may be outbreak that's killed 17. airports around the world step up screening protected by executive privilege. of travellers from the region. this would allow president trump's un human rights experts demand communications to remain private and of travellers from the region. allow him to resist scrutiny from congress. a crime does not have to day two of impeachment trials. be committed to impeach the president. i said that in the un human rights experts demand clinton case but abuse of power in an investigation into claims saudi arabia's crown prince hacked this case, i think undercuts the amazon bossjeff bezos's phone. an update on the market numbers ability of the president to for you here's how london's literally do hisjob because here's and frankfurt ended the day. what i would say by the executive privilege. there is nobody more important to the president than the and in the the united states, this is how the dow secretary of state in the national security adviser and chief of staff. and the nasdaq are getting on. he needs to protect the institution of the presidency. so, if i am asked to waive executive privilege, i will analysis for the bbc suggests
8:11 pm
say no. the only option is to stop the cost of poor mental health in the workplace has increased the trial and go to court or have to more than a0 billion pounds a year. the trial and go to court or have the senate decide the privilege and according to research by the consultancy firm deloitte, here's what i would tell future companies lose an average of nine working days per employee every year houses. if you go through these due to mental health problems. these difficulties could be privileges to impeach a president anything from feeling before an election and come to the anxious to being diagnosed senate he asked me to destroy the with a mental illness. privilege, forget it. and as our business editor simonjack reports, it can affect anyone from the shop floor to the boardroom. watching proceedings following whether it is the daily commute into a city centre office... yesterday's marathon, what you expect today? it will be a bit ..or another day on the building site... ..we spend a lot shorter, that is for sure. yesterday of our lives at work. and sometimes, life's pressures can was almost 13 hours and it wrapped up was almost 13 hours and it wrapped upjust get to us, any of us. was almost 13 hours and it wrapped up just before two in the morning with the chiefjustice having to colleagues... the boss of lloyds banking group admonish both sides for not being took time off work for stress and exhaustion as worries very polite to one another. their about the health of the bank tempers afraid to make afraid at one during the eurozone crisis started to affect his own health. so it was a problem that was going o'clock in the morning. setting out around my mind constantly. it led me to sleep less and less, their case, and again on friday, the and the less and less sleep
8:12 pm
progressively led me to exhaustion and not sleeping at all, which led me to, like, president's defence team in the face a kind of torture, when you don't of the white house counsel and sleep at all, and i have to address others will continue doing exactly that, which i did decisively. the same for the president of the that experience helped change united states. so we are going to the way the bank looked at mental get the main legal arguments, the health for all 65,000 employees. main narrative arguments in the there is a huge economic cost coming days at some point next week, we will revisit this whole idea of for society of mental health. it is a huge impact in having your whether or not documents of people in better health. if not tackled appropriately witnesses should be produced, more and supported appropriately, mental health issues can degenerate documents and more witnesses should into issues that break families and lives. be produced and there will be a series of votes and that is the point where democrats are hoping that a handful of republicans will away from the world of finance, switch sides and allowed them to construction is an industry that has always understood the importance change the whole dynamic of this of physical health and safety, but some dangers are harder to see. trial. joining me now is the assistant jordan bibbyjoined seddon construction as a 16—year—old apprentice but took his own life professor at the college of london and the washington post. thank you at 25 in 2017. suicide is nearly four times as common in construction for coming in, this is all down to as in other industries.
8:13 pm
it just seems slightly out the math because the republicans of personality for them... the company named a mental health dominate their and there's going to programme afterjordan and emma dempster trains bea dominate their and there's going to be a focus on key people who might the company's mental first aiders. be a focus on key people who might i asked her what they be persuaded to perhaps vote against were looking for. if somebody becomes very withdrawn, their natural allegiance. be persuaded to perhaps vote against their natural allegiancelj be persuaded to perhaps vote against their natural allegiance. i believe very quiet, or if somebody goes their natural allegiance. i believe the dynamic year in which we already the opposite way and becomes very know the outcome almost certainly quick to anger, you know, that donald trump will be acquitted very impatient with things, they are usually sort of warning signs. in this trial, but also dynamic that donald trump did what he is accused of doing is overwhelming and i think this is the bizarre dynamic at the if somebody is increasing theirdrinking. heart of this impeachment, the if somebody is maybe, you know, increasing or decreasing democrats of broad claims, they set the way they are eating, their habits, and their general the trump behaved in certain ways appearance as well is a good sign. and there is evidence throughout the the company has introduced more administration, people that he flexible working hours, unusual in construction, hand—picked for senior positions that say he did do these things and and has tried to create a culture it is corroborated by documents, where, as they put it, it is ok not to be ok. evidencing all bits of information i lost my dad to mental health. and yet it is unlikely to make any he took his own life 30 years ago and that was at a time difference because of political when it was unheard—of for companies calculations. your field quite to talk about mental health. strongly that some of the i have been struck, moved even, by the extent to which companies have embraced their role. republicans there will that we feel very strongly but ultimately we had after all, we spend a lot of time at work. to vote along party lines and in the no approach to mental health would be complete without employers doing their bit.
8:14 pm
long run, try to distance themselves from their actions. this will depend on what happens in 2020 because if it is notjust human, the party of trump wins in 2020, the caring and a decent thing to do. there's plenty of evidence republican party will be the party to suggest that it makes for more productive, of trump for happier and ultimately more republican party will be the party of trumpfora republican party will be the party of trump for a generation. if he successful businesses. loses in 2020, there be a pendulum it seems to have made a difference at this salford site. you can't force people to open up shift towards the party ofjohn but it sort of gives you, mccain and george w. bush in that like, lets you understand the triggers of... if someone is stressed, party does not accept donald trump. so enjoy seeing here is a fight for you will be able to see it in them. if i was feeling down, people's political survival in the i'd probably rather come to work, to be honest, because you've got short term running up against the people always around you who you can vent out to. demand for a legacy in the long term there is a lot still to do, andi demand for a legacy in the long term and i think those two things are but business is gradually building sometimes at odds and when the a new way to tackle the dangers rubber really hits the roads is when some of these contentions folks, and costs of poor mental health. allow evidence into a trial which is let's look at some other news. police investigating the fatal normally given, there is some very shooting of a 36—year—old man in front of his wife and child on christmas eve in london say vulnerable republican senators up a man has been arrested for reelection in the states where they are swing states and some on suspicion of murder. flamur beqiri died yards people do not like the president from his home in battersea. from the states and their point be the 22—year—old suspect was detained forced to take a very difficult at copenhagen airport. vote. the democrats want to try to jaguar land rover says it will cut

8:16 pm
all of the impeachments of happened, there have been witnesses, and all this afternoon, joe ousalice was finally given back the long service and good conduct medal there have been witnesses, and all the impeachments and meetings, there that was removed when he was forced have been witnesses. this is the to leave the navy because of his first time that there is an attempt sexuality back in 1993. to proceed in a trial without witnesses and you have to ask the theyjust cut it off my tunic with a pair of scissors. question, if these witnesses would it was a horrendous sensation. exonerate president trump and the the ministry of defence recently lit evidence that they're trying to up with the military buildings admit in the senate would exonerate to underline its commitment president trump, wife of the to lg bt people. republicans be so against letting but the people weren't given access these people say donald trump is not to today's ceremony in portsmouth, and the defence secretary, guilty and what is striking to me is how much of the argument on the ben wallace, didn't republican side is been about give any interviews. process and not about substance and his picture was taken byjoe's solicitor. the reason for that, the evidence there is now a campaign to get compensation for people that donald trump engaged in some of who were affected by the previous the behaviours that he is accused of ban on lgbt people in the military. is quite overwhelming. thank you for that is an important way for the mod to signal that they have coming. to really, really change. plenty more including live coverage they have to put their money where their mouth is. now 69 years old, joe served of the impeachment trial on a bbc as a radio operator for 18 years, taking part in the liberation online life page. just go to our of the falkland islands in 1982.

it looks as if britain and america are on a collision course over the chancellor cosmic plan to impose a tax on the big tech companies like facebook and apple, which make profits in this country. the so—called tech tax is due to come into force in april. this afternoon downing street said the new tax will go ahead despite a threat of retaliation from washington. our economics editor, faisal islam, reports from davos in switzerland where the argument came to a head. the virtual business giants of the tech world have a very physical presence on the streets of davos at the world economic forum, where they need to keep the world's power brokers on side. taxing them has been tricky and is now a global diplomatic incident, with britain committed in april to a 2% tax on the uk sales of the likes of facebook, google and amazon. as we leave... here, the chancellor under pressure internationally, in particular from donald trump's

treasury secretary. can they get a trade deal with you if they insist on introducing a digital tax in april? we will be having some private conversations about that. i'm sure the president and boris will be speaking on it as well. if people want to just arbitrarily put taxes on our digital companies, we will consider arbitrarily putting taxes on car companies. another trade power play from the us. the chancellor, for now, sticking to his guns. we plan to go ahead with our digital services tax in april. it will fall away once there is an international solution. brexit next week means freedom to do international trade deals. what we are seeing here is that freedom is constrained. it requires trade—offs and choices to get those deals. the americans in particular piling on the pressure for a u—turn on the digital sales tax. the uk dropping hints that it will prioritise an eu deal before a us one.
