good morning, simon. caught my lines that attention, a fascinating story for japan, but reflects a broader trend, the ruling party lost to an upstart output. where have we seen that before? this represents a challenge to the japanese to go back focusing on the economy. >> the challenge lay down doesically means for abe he pull the levers of the last 3-4 years monetary fiscal stimulus or take the high road, which is international contemporaries have not taken, and use the time to look at structural reform, which it sounds repetitive, but is the real challenge. the monetary stimulus only provides your window within to do it. he faces that choice.
1:12 am
if he does not embrace the high road, the political challenges will come thick and fast later in the decade. anna: the whole point of abenomics was taking the higher road, was about structural reform in the economy as well. the other story this morning his there may come pressure on governor kuroda, boj governor, and a former governor saying he is out of ideas, radical thinking, and that was the experiment with the boj. do you see that is a possibility? >> to the first point about the high road coming yes, but we keep talking about the monetary and fiscal stimulus and never have got into the third arrow in the quiver, which was the structural reform program. forerms of the future governor kuroda, the biggest challenge he faces is if this

1:22 am
china has been snapping up energy assets around the world. some of the majors have been chipping their toe in the dealmaking space. the timing, the iran announcement is expected to come on the day that was going to be the deadline for qatar to respond to those 13 demands from the saudi-led gcc alliance, and it involves an oil field that iran shares with qatar. there is this interesting geopolitical angle. one source here on the ground thought that the decision to restart production in the northfield asked field earlier cause of the the diplomatic spat with saudi arabia and other gcc member since it heaped pressure on other opec countries, so some fascinating dynamics on the ground. manus: what is the latest on the qatar situation?
1:23 am
the kuwait these are playing a crucial role here as mediators. exactly. as i alluded to in that previous answer, we have had supposedly an extension of the deadline. saudi arabia according to local media saying it has agreed to this extension in response to a request by kuwait, acting as mediator in the dispute. hason't know whether qatar agreed to the extension and whether or not this makes any difference to the disagreement. we saw strong words out of the foreign ministry yesterday saying they would not concede to anything that violates national sovereignty. meanwhile, saudi arabia said there is no room for it remainss, so unclear whether an additional two days will be enough to result this dispute. manus: thank you very much. u.s. turn our attention to crude extending its longest run

1:26 am
geopolitical reasons were given leeway. will pressure come on them to participate? that is a plausible scenario, but goes to show something i have been talking about for six months, the geopolitical stability of the opec group means, which is fundamentally more unstable since the arab spring, makes comparisons with 1998, which a lot of professional analysts are drawing, very inappropriate in this cycle. there just simply is not the desire to impose short-term pain on the population. effectively public works programs will continue at lossmaking to represent a geopolitical stabilization program. as well and the gas story. thank you very much. you stay with us here on daybreak. anna: barclays is in the dark.

nautical miles from the u.k. coastline. a great deal of discussion was made yesterday on a whole host of challenges. i'm not can it get into the nuances. there is a definite shift in terms of negotiation and sentiment. hammond is about to talk to businesses and you have these , soces about fisheries there is saying sense of a shift in the stands for negotiations? >> there is. it is the third part of negotiations. we have not heard from money. we've heard about northern ireland and the land border, we've heard about the right to remain in the u.k. for eu nationals. of therd part
1:37 am
negotiating approach to this, which is to address those three areas first. the third part is money, financial services, a passporting arrangement, trying to wrap it up in that, to make the most difficult part of the separation for them which is the divorce bill and tying that up with key strategic services. it is a sensible approach. said theyn't the eu don't want to tie up in the future trade deal, which is what this would be alluding to? what the eu 27 is on the agenda right now. they said it is about the land border, eu citizens, and the divorce bill. >> you allude to something which is common knowledge, the eq are not prepared at this stage to do
1:38 am
any of the future arrangements until those component parts are this has to tie in with the fact that the u.k. government fundamentally does not agree with that and is trying every approach, particularly the key area where the u.k. government has some leverage, which is on money. it can if it wants to walk away from its obligations. there was along with the symbolic, thete idea of the u.k. walking away. manus: it was on the front page of the telegraph. >> the idea of walking away where there is no international court which can impose such a of the fewis one bargaining chips the u.k. and therefore in t we use it. manus: one of the things is the

shift in the sands from the doe. -- boe. the squeeze in terms of the u.k., the savings ratio is now the lowest on record, below 2%. real income with a longer stretch of declines in 40 years, and people are talking about raising rates. have i just lost the point here? int would be the final screw terms of social policy here in the u.k.. >> three members lost the point, which is that at this stage with the amount of uncertainty over the future trading relationship u.k. has with its european colleagues and a short-term spike in inflation, it is not the time to be raising interest rates in the u.k., and are int the mpc members
1:40 am
that position, and with the governor providing slightly , the rhetoric of one-week changes to the next. what ever it says, this is not in environment where the spike in inflation we are seeing in the u.k. will be mitigated by factors to mystically controlled. presente perception of presen negotiations in the bounceback in the oil price. near zeroest rates would be a foolish move. manus: there are two things people talk about one is the possibility of another election, and two, another referendum. so your probabilities on that? >> i have a terrible forecasting
1:41 am
record on politics. in the see any appetite conservative party at the moment for another general election. they are petrified of the idea that all the momentum that is laced with relevance, but momentum is with the labour party, so therefore there are conservative mps who will say let's get through this next to your window, and also the strategy is that theresa may has withtially impose a window which she can do the two-year article 50 process. focusvative parties will on getting a plausible leader to follow it. anna: do we need a coalition to forge brexit? we need grown-ups in the room, across parties or other parts of the conservative party is an interesting question. out answer the second part of the question, whether we get
1:42 am
another referendum or test of public opinion. it may not take the guise of a referendum. thatnk that is plausible the economic pain starts to mean more profound, more long-term. you mentioned the savings ratio. if that is a way of household budgets smoothing through a temporary compression, not only sensible, but plausible. it can't be sustained for long, and if pain continues, a revisiting of this question is plausible before the end of the article 50 process. anna: thank you very much. manus: breaking lines from the finance minister. anna: in japan. the deputy finance minister talking in japan, supporting the abe administration and supports the premise are at the time of this defeat in tokyo. manus: 23 seats. anna: much below expectations.

1:55 am
imports from china, 20% to 25% with mexico, key elements he has gone completely silent on. if the domestic agenda stalls and the elements where he can use except importers rather than congressional support will come back as his key leverage tool. somes why at think at point, and this underpins a bullish view on the u.s. dollar, is that protectionism will come back as we had towards midterms and the eyes of the white house shift from the domestic reform program to getting reelected. the focus at the end of last week was on steel, and tariffs on steel and the way the white house is not on the same page. back to treasury yields. manus: j.p. morgan con the
