newspapers make frightening reading when it comes to north korea. the south china morning post not holding back as much as it does. it presents the facts. it does present the facts. this situation has been building. 0ver facts. this situation has been building. over this year facts. this situation has been building. 0verthis yearwe have had in —— a number of launches. this one was different. it stayed in the air for 40 minutes. it was different. it stayed in the air for40 minutes. it is was different. it stayed in the air for 40 minutes. it is capable of reaching alaska. while there is no proof it could destroy the city in alaska, there is reached, so it is somewhat different. we have a 620 meeting in germany on the weekend. we are scheduled to see meetings between japanese leader abe, the south korean leader and trump. this year there has been a lot of meetings between those three and north korea has been the focus of a lot of discussion. a lot of wartook. as the morning post points out, two
5:47 am
of the allies, beijing and moscow, don't want to get involved in military action and it would be hard to get past them —— war talk. military action and it would be hard to get past them -- war talk. no one wants military action. 0ne to get past them -- war talk. no one wants military action. one of the concerns, wants military action. one of the concerns, which has lingered all year, is if there were military action against north korea, it exposes the south koreans. no one really wants that. there have been discussions with the us officials and the south koreans earlier this year, and also japan. we have had a lot of pressure from donald trump on other nato countries to increase their nato defence spending, it should be 2% of gdp, countries don't do that and japan for the last five years has increased military spending. the prime minister wants to change the constitution before the 2020 olympic games to allow the passive burst constitution really to
5:48 am
support more military. when president trump was elected he got friendly with china and it was seen asa friendly with china and it was seen as a way to defeat this north korean threat, although it seems to have fallen apart. is it interesting but it is tied in with this protectionism. trott recently suggested tariffs against chinese steel dumping as he called it —— trump. earlier there were reports he said, ok, we will go easy on trade if you increase the share between you, china, and north korea, so that is another avenue. let's stick with china, with the chinese premier speaking to vladimir putin in that meeting. interestingly, their third meeting. interestingly, their third meeting this year already, agreeing to loan russia $11 billion. yes, although interestingly they won't be in dollars, they will be in renminbi, this is a way to get under the sanctions on russia. this goes
5:49 am
back a few years in relation to the russian position with ukraine. there are russian sanctions which really did affect the economy and also some positives from russia out of the sanctions — rather than importing food from europe, they are growing a lot more than they were. they are coming through those sanctions perhaps with some benefits for them. certainly from the position of the us, to see china and russia strengthening their ties is something that they will watch. and what we have been talking about with north korea, and now they are undermining sanctions against russia, eu and american imposed sanctions, it doesn't bode well for the global political map and alliances. and it comes back to this position about raising defence spending. china has raised spending, the us, nato, japan, the baltic countries. there is a lot of tension. gulf news reporting these demands made by countries, arab
5:50 am
emirates, qatar, they are going to issue further demands and sanctions. yes, and already there has been an extension to this. this was meant to be agreed on sunday. there has been an extension, this is these countries criticising qatar for harbour —— countries criticising qatar for harbour — — harbouring countries criticising qatar for harbour —— harbouring terrorism. among the points they want qatar to come back on, they want them to close al jazeera newsagency come back on, they want them to close aljazeera newsagency and scale back relations between qatar and iran, so it will be crucial to see how qatar response to this. they wa nt see how qatar response to this. they want additional responses to come from the other arab nations. does all this uncertainty in the middle east and asia affect the markets? well, it affects the oil price. and gas is part of this. qatar is a
5:51 am
significant producer of gas. in the uk we take quite a bit of qatar gas. gas is certainly within that — coil obviously as well. when you wake up to the headlines this morning, it makes you want to go back to bed —— oil. especially at 3am. it isn't saved out there. arab news talking about that meeting, massive story in the least with huge ramifications and focusing on turkey as well. that's just as march nearing the finish line. there is always discontent in just about every country. this is significant, isn't it? the discontent in turkey has been rising and falling for the last few years. many would say suppressed as well. and this is a point. we have to say that erdogan is a democratically elected president, however there are accusations it is becoming autocratic, erdogan becoming autocratic, erdogan becoming autocratic. with respect to
5:52 am
the referendum which gave him more powers the opposition has been accusing erdogan of some apt analogy. and with respect to this march, starting with a few hundred people, it has grown into the thousands. this is a protest by many to say we have a secular government, we are moving to a conservative, autocratic government. we don't like what we see. the backdrop to police backgrounds, protest, people disappearing, journalists arrested, especially since the coup — people who posed a threat to this leader. and in the west there were reports it was unjust political people. it was academics, teachers also arrested or sacked from theirjobs for supporting the coup. the daily telegraph headline, left over women forced to freeze eggs. this is a study by yale university and it takes the view that women with degrees were lonely and want
5:53 am
partners, and men with degrees. and there is a discrepancy... never been a problem for me. laughter there is a discrepancy between the amount of women starting university, there is a lot more than in 1985. they said 45% of women started university and that has grown to 54% in the uk. i thought women just went for personality! that is the counter argument. do the women look at the men's cv? is there enough room in one household for two clever people! come on. for a long time women who went to freeze eggs were seen as quite selfish tom that they wanted to put their career first. quite selfish tom that they wanted to put their careerfirst. they quite selfish tom that they wanted to put their career first. they were criticised for it. they wanted to put their fertility on the backburner. this says it is more to do with the fact that they just like what is on offer in terms of life partner. exactly that. it says women

need to lower standards. i do think so. need to lower standards. i do think so. it is also beneficialfor need to lower standards. i do think so. it is also beneficial for health reasons. if you put off having children, you never know what is going to happen. it allows you to have the chance for a family. choice. it gives you options. it must cost a fortune. can we squeeze in wimbledon? roger federer is not happy. he says, if you start the first round in wimbledon, you get £35,000 and he says a lot of players who know that they cannot finish their match shouldn't be allowed to do that. it is easy for him to say. he is so rich. what about the people who pay £55 for a ticket for wimbledon? they are being let down. it is difficult for those players owning a living as a tennis player — very expensive. and they hope to be pa rt very expensive. and they hope to be part of it in some form. much more on wimbledon later. thank you so much for taking us through the papers. leisure. —— pleasure.

5:56 am
most of the midlands and east anglia. temperatures come up quickly. for the rest of the day, the winds feel light in southern counties of england, allowing temperatures to surge. the cloud across northern england is with us for much of the day, breaking in northern ireland. it will try to brighten up in north—east england. the rain petering out. probably not a lot of sunshine. where cloudy, the temperatures staying into the teens, but look at these temperatures further south. 28 in london. there could be some areas in southern england that hit the 30 degree mark. as we go on through thursday, the only real change is this little low drifting up from biscay, and with that comes instability. we start to get thunderstorms breaking out across england and wales, and some of those could be torrential. they will be hit and miss in nature. many areas will dodge the downpours and stay dry. it will stay hot and humid and that hot and humid air will push further northwards. so 25 in the greater manchester area. again, we could see highs of 30 degrees further south. on friday, probably the weather becoming drier. again the warm air continues to waft further northwards. so temperatures in newcastle picking up to 21. into the teens for scotland
