that has any leveraged with them and that is china, and they are also neighbours in the south china sea attending to establish new land bases and islands with military bases, so this is a difficult balance and i hope president trump is aware of how subtle the gradations of diplomacy can be. an interesting detail in here, he said he committed himself to the great ally, japan, the remark that raised eyebrows in south korea because he didn't mention south korea as a great ally. this is complicated stuff and i hope he treads lightly or we could end with a much more situation than the one we have now which is a rogue state missiles around. indeed. let's move on. tony let's go with the metro having this story about this big survey of what police officers actually thought about guns, tasered and so on. is this the result of that? it is, and that is what i find it really interesting about this particular story, as you rightly said, the police federation, the trade union for police officers, they had a conversation about whether a knobbly should be armed, and they asked their members and fou
