11:35 pm
at the london evening standard. we will go through the papers in a moment. first off, a look at the papers. the daily telegraph. the daily telegraph claims that royal mail staff, as well as rail and airport workers, may strike over christmas, leaving theresa may facing pressure over "industrial chaos." the paper also notes andy murray's third sports personality victory. the guardian also celebrates murray's win, but focuses on claims that the justice secretary had prior warning ahead of the riot at hmp birmingham on friday. the metro leads with former chancellor george osborne's verdict that his warnings about the uk being poorer after brexit are being proved right. brexit also dominates the financial times, but the paper focuses on fears about exit talks being delayed will mean banks leaving the uk for abroad. the times claims that britain is dumping overseas aid money
11:36 pm
into trust funds to try meet the country's annual target. and the daily mail leads with the claim that millions of pounds of uk aid money has been used to fund a talk show for an african girl band. 0k. ok. begin. lovely ok. - begin. lovely to see you. we will start with the guardian. liz truss and birmingham prison. the disturbance of the major rioting, the prison has been out of control. it has been subdued. it is talking about how liz truss was warned two months ago about the dangers of such an incident at birmingham. there were not enough staff. quite a large prison, 1500 inmates, one of the largest in the country. it goes on to talk about the problem of drugs in the prison.
11:37 pm
one of those watchdogs has talked about this. the thing about this is, and the story quotes nick, the chief inspector of the prison until the end of the year, he warned explicitly, as did his replacement, about the risk of legal highs, psychoactive drugs. they were creating a tremendously violent atmosphere imprisoned. this has been well—documented. this story shows that the secretary warned of the dangers of birmingham, and predecessors had been warned about this risk actually buy the chief inspectors of prisons. for many yea rs inspectors of prisons. for many years it has been growing, the concern about the levels of violent incidents in prison. drugs being thrown over the wall and all sorts

of things. and then cutting staff members by 30% since 2010. you have nae-aka» i-.-..- zaoi. fie-sf; you. yet- e215; 155427 , , essence there a situation where in essence there are increasingly unstable inmates in there. and at the same time, fewer and fewer staff to deal with them. it isa and fewer staff to deal with them. it is a toxic problem unfortunately. the danger that has been spread. there is a suggestion from a prison in hull. it is a bit of a tinderbox situation. it seems some have been involved in the instigation of the birmingham issues. and it is clearly a growing concern. i also wonder sometimes how it can be avoided. it is all well and fine to talk about when these things happen. but whether the justice secretary or any civil servant can actually prevent random out sparks of violent. the
11:39 pm
two things are, the currentjustice secretary has not been in her post very long, and has inherited a problem that theyg the with this eff: and now.7—l}}£.;¥r7~7— with this eff: and now has £1557 landed with this problem and now has to deal with it. the problem with her side is that it is actually not a problem, according to her, it is simple to deal with here and now. more numbers in fewer prisons, a better ratio between staff and prisoners, and we also need a better way of stopping drugs coming in. they talk about nets, don't they? providing more nets and body scan is. you cannot throw them like that. if these things are coming in by drone it does not matter how big the nets are, these are co—ordinated. there are many instances where they could stop it. there was a killing ofan
11:40 pm
could stop it. there was a killing of an inmate earlier this year. there were problems previous to this. but there was a report there we re this. but there was a report there were broken windows and drones were flying out of window ledges were broken windows and drones were flying out of window [edges and going out through the window. interestingly, the times also has this story on its front page. i don't know if either of you picked up don't know if either of you picked up on the point that, i think the uk has the largest number of prisoners 01’ has the largest number of prisoners or people being sent to prison compared to the rest of europe. i mean, you were saying... are we going back to 20 years ago? often there is the belief, and understandably, that i think you need to have two show you have a more draconian sentencing policy. but the argument is all you do is institutionalise people more and make them more likely to offend when they come out. and you are putting them in small spaces designed for a particular number and having them
11:41 pm
share cells, at particular number and having them share cells, et cetera. there is an argument we have been at that level for quite some time and the violence is now happening because there is in essence not enough staff. so they have said they are not prepared to pay for enough staff to cope with the numbers they have got. there are warnings by the chairman of the oa in hull. it has been happening for yea rs. let in hull. it has been happening for years. let us stay with the times. but stay with the aid story. dumping these incredible figures into trust funds. this is a toxic issue for many tory mps in particular, that david cameron set this to get of 0.7% of gdp spent on aid. that is a very worthy objective and lots of it does achieve some good things. but there is the feeling, and this story reflects that, what has been happening, to make sure we meet that target, but the department for
11:42 pm
international development is putting money into these trust funds, and that money is sitting there in those funds. if you have a budget and need to spend it in a certain period of time, you get to the end and say you have not spent enough and you put it inafund. have not spent enough and you put it in a fund. what happens to these accounts? literally just sitting there. just sitting there? a large amount of it. £4 billion apparently. and also the sheer scale, 0.7% of national income equating to £12 billion this year alone which is a vast sum of money when we know there is other... social care. yeah. we understand international aid can be good to event legal migration, people fleeing their state of advance. if that is sitting on a bank account, that is clearly not
11:43 pm
satisfactory. the world bank charging 240 million to uk taxpayers just defined what hasn't been spent. andy murray. —— just to fund. yet another strike for theresa may. the only thing keeping this country running over the last few days is elves, sleighs and reindeer. everything is stopping. trains are stopping. flying as well. and now they will be a mail stoppage. a threat of a strike to prevent presence “— threat of a strike to prevent presence —— presents being delivered. i am a massive satsuma fan. the front of the sun. picking up fan. the front of the sun. picking up the traffic story. this is a story suggesting... this is
11:44 pm
something already happening in london, the council has powers to police bus lanes and all those things. it is saying these powers are going to go from the police outside london to the local authorities. and of course, as you say, that will be more rigourously enforced. the police don't really like to do traffic enforcement any more. so many people will be hit by them now. anyone in london would say they are pretty good at spotting any minor offence and you will get a fine ina minor offence and you will get a fine in a number of days. with all those cameras. this will get people's blood boiling. why don't people's blood boiling. why don't people just not stop in bus lanes? they need to be aware of signals and all indications. have you gone down all indications. have you gone down a one—way street without knowing it ortakena a one—way street without knowing it or taken a wrong turn? people followed the sat nav. it says turn

left. i blame my sat nav. i found myself in a spot where it is only for a bath. ithought, why am i myself in a spot where it is only fora bath. ithought, why am i in this spot? —— bus. suddenly, click, click, i had a fine. andy murray, the front of the guardian. he is great and popular and a deserved winner. he has been in a marvellous, magnificent... he is only popular now. once he shared those tears after winning the wimbledon final, people realised... is that all it took? loves a gavin lewis and human interest. we talk about england losing at the ball and we got so used to it that it doesn't even seem to matter any more but that has gone into the background. —— football. this is so significant. we need
