result of this? the pressure from the eu will begin to look about whether this is a place where money laundering is going on and the level of corruption. even under the years of gaddafi libyan money was coming out via malta, so it's always had a strange reputation as a place where grannies go on holiday and where there's a bit of organised crime going on as well. it's an island tucked away out of the way, it has done its own thing for a long time. out of the way but physically on a map it is very close to libya, it is very close to southern italy, so it makes it an obvious place for people from both countries to want to go to ta ke from both countries to want to go to take their cash and find ways of spending it. let's move on to the china daily. opening up will remain the basic policy of china. is there anything we saw from this speech that we didn't know was going to happen? three and a half hours, i'm sure we we re three and a half hours, i'm sure we were all listening to every last word! i'm sure the sinologist will be picking it apart today. in the south china morning post they f

behalf of more people than entire foreign countries in the eu. >> are there other strategies we might employ to reduce the price to consumers in the state of indiana? >> again, we have to look at what our insurance market system looks like today. oftentimes we treat from his two vehicles very different than other aspects of the health system. based on individual biology, if you need a medicine you're being asked to pay significantly more out of pocket as opposed to if you needed to go into a hospital setting. i think we do need to examine if it's fair to say to a patient with rheumatoid arthritis you need to pay 40% and if i go into the hospital i need to pay 4% of the cost. >> one possibility to lower prices and increase value, as i understand it, is the use of outcome-based contracts increasingly being piloted by pharmaceutical companies. can you explain how these work in summary fashion and their potential to lower drug costs for patients, and then perhaps elaborate on any policy initiatives we here might engage in that might be standing in the way of moving these pilots to s

matthew who says, funded by the eu, the 0ecd, to the tune of £23 million a year, the 0ecd are biased, of course they want the status quo and that's the point, isn't it, it isn't going to unite remainers and brexiteers. i'm surprised they use that language. this claim is in a tiny little box and another part of it says that things would look bad if scotland voted to leave the uk, so these were the worst case scenarios. it is strange that they chose to put this, and slightly politically naive, not to realise it would cause a backlash. politically it's important that it adds some pressure to theresa may and also to the case they are trying to build for no deal, if only to give themselves an average in the brexit negotiation. it's important, i don't think there's anything shocking about this. their projections are based on an outcome that no one wants, whereby believe in march, 2019 and revert to world trade organisation terms. no deal, no transition. that's not what the prime minister and eu wants. so when they say that of course things might be better, i suspect they will be better. of
