now it is time for our news review. as you would expect they are all over social media and the press on with a look at some of the newspaper headlines. the front of the irish times carries a picture of turkish president recep tayyip erdogan, who has vowed to press ahead with the constitutional changes approved in a referendum. election officials say he took 51.5% of the vote. the japan times leads with north korea and america who says it's working on a "range of options" with china, as tensions continue to grow over the country's nuclear and missile programmes. pyongyang attempted to test fire what's thought to be a medium—range missile this weekend, but it blew up shortly after take off.
the ft leads with a warning from the international monetary fund against us protectionism. us commerce secretary wilbur ross has called the accusation from christine lagarde and others as "rubbish". the gulf news business section says us markets are bracing for a sell—off amid geopolitical concerns. last week, the dowjones fell by over 0.5% and the price of gold has recently been on the rise again. that was just before the long bank holiday weekend. prince harry is on the front of the telegraph, having given an exclusive interview where he disclosed he sought counselling while struggling to come to terms with the death of his mother, diana, princess of wales. and finally in the times, there's an article on a recent study which shows that living with heavy pollution is as bad for people's happiness as being widowed or divorced. we have a familiar face with us
today on this bank holiday monday here in the uk. joining us is david buik, who's a market strategist at panmure gordon. thank you for coming in. good morning, as brilliant as ever, the world on your shoulders. much chocolate have you consumed? no eggs, just chocolate and biscuits. you don't do it? i would be pear shaped! it is "the irish times, what's on the front page of many papers —— papers all over the world, this headline says erdogan tightens his grip on turkey. what's your take on the outcome of their referendum? a shocking piece of news. erdogan i’u ns a shocking piece of news. erdogan runs what has been for some years and repressive society over there. we don't hear half of what goes on
but all i can say from what i understand is you don't argue and if you don't like what's going on, there's an awful lot of military around to deal with that and the fa ct around to deal with that and the fact now that turkey frankly is no longer a democracy is fearful for the european union, for the united states of america, for china, and for a shock, it is almost isolated itself on a 70 million people in turkey, and ten years ago, i remember talking to people saying choose one country that you would like to go and develop a business ian and most people said turkey, they said, actually, 15 years ago, they said, actually, 15 years ago, the optimism people had towards doing business in that country was fantastic. it's all changed. i think it will be difficult to build a relationship. has it all changed though? to be devils advocate, many argue in turkey over 50% voted, just slightly tipping it over the line. just like brexit, yes. for the
president, the role of president, to have these new powers. looking at the office of president erdogan, he argues we arejust the office of president erdogan, he argues we are just changing the way we do things in line with what is going on with the united states, that's his opinion on the matter. 0bviously, these constitutional changes will come into effect after the next election, 2019, so many would argue this is an important shift for the country to reform and change and renew its democracy. shift for the country to reform and change and renew its democracylj would change and renew its democracy.” would argue with that because the fa ct would argue with that because the fact remains, you talk about the united states, whatever donald trump may say and do, congress says hang on, let's think about this. and also illegal. justice department. this is an autocracy. whether we like it or not the 48.5% are going to have the opportunity to vent their spleen apart from going on the streets.
having said that, many voted no, ankara, istanbul voted no, we will have to see how that pans out and how the investigation into the... many people in brexit said they had their play, —— say, 48 cents, and they had a huge they and they are making themselves heard and i have no doubt negotiations will be accordingly adopted. this gentleman? we will see how it pans out.” accordingly adopted. this gentleman? we will see how it pans out. i hope you are right and i hope i am wrong. iam not you are right and i hope i am wrong. i am not saying i am you are right and i hope i am wrong. iam not saying i am rightand you are right and i hope i am wrong. i am not saying i am right and you are wrong, just putting another view across. now north korea tests trumpet in failed missile launch. there is so much going on now in that region, a lot has happened, i've been off work for a week and so much happened in that week! sally, many of these headlines today are out of date because 48 hours ago, i must say, i was very uncomfortable, and do you know the idea of all of these warships just off the coast of pyongyang now seem to have backed
offa pyongyang now seem to have backed off a little bit. the fact remains the key to the kingdom is basically china. and russia. north korea is destitute in terms of trade, it is in terrible trouble. and it is being kept alive by china and is being kept alive by china and is being kept alive by russia who supply arms and food and the rest of it. interesting yesterday china said they were not taking their coal anymore so they were not taking their coal anymore so obviously the word has gonein anymore so obviously the word has gone in from donald trump and others around the world to xi jinping and he is thinking about the ramifications because any sort of any kind of military action is unthinkable. but what impact will this have on markets? skipping to the gulf news, any assaying markets have braced for a big sell—off because of the geopolitics and this is all going on in north korea, south korea, with the us involvement, has happened in a bank holiday weekends when markets reopen a play tomorrow...? nothing. nothing? in terms of the markets because things are uncomfortable, it
may come off 0.5% but in new york last week, the euro was down 2.5% on the week and that was because people have been increasingly uncomfortable at the only thing it really changes is the price of oil, people are now thinking about if this north korean thing really kicks off, it's the end of the world. we've got to move on. it's a pity. there we are. talk about harry. a big coup for the daily telegraph to get this exclusive interview. what an! what the —— or the brilliant advertisement for the royal family. can you imagine when you are 12, a stiff upper lip, and you cannot say anything, express yourself, and he has held onto it for so many years and he is, as they say, coming into his spring coat, he is a fantastic person. and also very much in line with his role with his brother william and kate of course with this
mental health charity that they all had up. absolutely. and they've pushed that for so many years, it's all on the same page, the mercy of theissue all on the same page, the mercy of the issue of mental health and counselling and all of these issues. and like somebody taking the safety valve off and it's all coming out andi valve off and it's all coming out and i think the young royals, they are fantastic, they do a brilliant job. you just got rid of your diesel car, the times front page, a p pa re ntly car, the times front page, apparently pollution is up there with bereavement in terms of the impact on your quality of life. yeah, but i don't know how you actually measure this because pollution is bad, diesel or anything else around the world, but a p pa re ntly else around the world, but apparently 23,000 people die from the pollution of what they called nitrogen dioxide and am quite surprised that you could actually measure that but i think one of the things is whether you are a climate change present or not the one thing around the world in open areas is pollution and whatever can be done to stop it has to be encouraged.
pollution and whatever can be done to stop it has to be encouragedm is another article that says to me at the end of the day people having to pay fees to bring their diesel ca rs to pay fees to bring their diesel cars in the cities, it will happen, won't it? i think it has two. this whole debate about diesel ownership and pollution and all that it'll be interesting to see how it manages to play out. ironically previous law, the mayor of london, encouraged us to buy diesel. this dick johnson, what did you have to say? do you mean our current foreign secretary? indeed. lovely to have you, thank you for coming in on a bank holiday, we really appreciated. stay with us, plenty more for you at the top of the hour and i will see you soon. goodbye. good morning. the forecast is one that benefits those still on easter break. not much for the growers. not much rain around, but some dry and quite sunny weather to enjoy at times.
turning warmer, after a chilly start overnight. will still stay frosty, especially in the south, and quite cold out there at the moment. as we start the day, we have high pressure to the west of us, low pressure to the east, the northerly pressure bringing cold air notjust to us but to a good part of northern and eastern europe as well. now, most will start dry and bright across the northern half of the uk. so let's start the forecast for easter monday here. there may be one or two showers across parts of eastern scotland, but a brighter day to begin with across northern england, and indeed northern ireland. northern ireland should stay dry throughout. but showers and rain, sleet to lower levels. sleet and snow over high ground eastern scotland will drift away southwards through the day, followed by much, much sunnier conditions. whereas further south we start off with the cloud, and maybe the odd spot of light rain and drizzle for parts of wales, the midlands, into the south, in particular. there will be very few showers through the day. most will avoid them. if they do come your way, they will be fairly fleeting. and notice how the clouds break up, more sunshine developing through the afternoon.
so again, just about across—the—board, more of you will see the sunshine on easter monday than you did through sunday. these are the temperatures to finish the afternoon. a chilly feel but with lighter winds further south. in the sunshine, should feel reasonably pleasant. we finish the day with lots of showers in northern england, and they will drift down the eastern areas to take us through the night and into tuesday. as they ease off, the skies clear, the wind falls that little bit lighter, temperatures will plummet. for those of you in the northern half of uk, it will be the coldest night of the week. away from the towns and cities, temperatures —5 to —7 in some parts of scotland, most just about avoiding frost across the south. probably a bit too much breeze into tuesday for that to form, could bring the odd shower, and we could see the odd spot of rain in the hebrides a bit later. but for the commuters, a cold start to tuesday, but for those on holiday it is looking like a good day. most places dry, with lots of sunshine. a bit of a fresh spring day, but that sun is strong enough to make it still feel reasonably pleasant. then, as we go through wednesday, high pressure establishes itself across the southern half of the uk.
we will see westerly winds pushing into the south of scotland. that will bring the cloud, the odd spot of rain, that will push into parts of northern ireland, as well, keeping the temperatures up here on wednesday morning. but further south, this will be a colder start to the week. one or two of you could get down to —6 or —7. couldn't rule out the odd shower to the south and east, but most places will be dry and fairly sunny. goodbye for now. hello. this is breakfast, with rogerjohnson and sian lloyd. prince harry reveals he turned to therapy to help him deal with the death of his mother, princess diana. in a newspaper interview, he describes how he went for counselling after coming close to a complete breakdown. there is actually a lot of stuff here that i need to deal with. it was 20 years of not thinking about it and then two years ofjust total
