likes austerity. spreadsheet phil! good news might be pushing it. if you are the chancellor, it is a long and terrifying report by the obr, it is about 300 pages, and anybody who has read the whole thing will be broken! i have read the main bits. notjust broken! i have read the main bits. not just the executive broken! i have read the main bits. notjust the executive summary?” could not possibly comment! but it is not good news for anybody. the other important thing is that we are not ina other important thing is that we are not in a position to deal with anything going slightly wrong, and there is something going on at the moment called brexit, which may add uncertainty over the next couple of years. if that did go badly, it appears we are facing another big serious financial problem. take us to the daily telegraph, the same story from a different angle, it says squeezing rich harms the economy. the daily telegraph, conservative supporting paper, has picked out part of the report and says that one of the findings is
that the country is very reliant on the richest people at the top of the economy, which is risky, if something happens to them or to theirarea of something happens to them or to their area of income, like what happened with the financial crash in 2008, it leaves the public finances vulnerable. the telegraph says labour's plan to tax the rich more to fund public services is risky. talking about fleeing the country, there will be tax incentives for rich people as well, especially after brexit. but it stop mention that the report also says the last seven years have not left the public finances ina seven years have not left the public finances in a good place, and it is equally grim reading if you are a tory chancellor as if you were a labour shadow chancellor. it is a sobering analysis. if you are not that rich and you are looking at this newspaper, you will think, they
have the world's smallest violin, thatis have the world's smallest violin, that is a point of view. austerity will not end any time soon. according to this lot. contains a u—turn on paris climate deal, here are the first lady and the president of each country. they are having dinner tonight. i wonder what they are having. he likes ketchup with everything. i am are having. he likes ketchup with everything. lam not are having. he likes ketchup with everything. i am not sure, the chef has won 21 michelin stars. what has been happening? the first time they met was awkward. but he has put on a good show for him this time. they ke pt good show for him this time. they kept doing these funny handshakes are trying to outdo each other, it was ridiculous. it seems to be more about how they touch each other these days! it is a fascinating first summit, they are chalk and cheese. relatively new leaders. one
of them is this old crazy guy, you do not know what he will do next, you did not know what his politics are, the other is a centre ground, young, great hope for the liberals of europe. they are clashing together in paris, you would love to bea together in paris, you would love to be a fly on the wall. the talk is he is coming round to a u—turn on the paris climate deal, but he will say anything to anyone, just to get out of the room, then he changes his mind. he thinks no body can hear him over there. do you not think that he is feeling isolated, potentially‘s i don't think he ever feels like that. i think his ego is so big, maybe people say things to him and advise him, but! people say things to him and advise him, but i think he quickly goes away... last week he talks about this brilliant trade deal we will get, but where is the meat on the bones? out of the country at that is
it. we will see, but he seems to say, however that room, just to get out of the room. he told emmanuel macron's has —— wife she is in great shape. what a charmer. for a woman of...| shape. what a charmer. for a woman of... i should shape. what a charmer. for a woman of... ishould not shape. what a charmer. for a woman of... i should not say that! revolt over repeal bill power grab. we have got the bill that will bring eu law when we leave the eu into british law. what is the power grab? this will transpose these european laws back into british law so we can stick with them or not at our leisure, there is not a sudden change on the first day, but what has upset the scottish and welsh governments is that when we get these powers back, they go straight to westminster, and westminster may or may not deemed that scotland and wales can have the powers, and they
think it is unfair, we are supposed to bea think it is unfair, we are supposed to be a devolved nation, there should be a much more integrated approach to how we devolved powers. if you are a scottish nationalists and you are keen to push the idea that westminster is taking powers of view, theresa may has given them another opportunity to do that, i put in this bill in this way, and labour have said, we don't agree, we think the assumption should be that the powers are devolved to the administration is unless there is a good reason. and there should be scrutiny in parliament. you have a two—year window where they can think with certain laws at their will. two—year window where they can think with certain laws at their widm sounds like they are going to. on the one hand labour and the lib dems would think this is a bad idea and they are worried about the oversight and whether the tories will start fiddling with things, but at the same time they were always going to have a go, because they see theresa may is weak, and they will keep going. they talk about a political
quagmire, tim farron is talking about how this will bring down theresa may eventually. with the best will in the world, you can see it happening, to cast this will drag on. whether we come out in march 2019, when you see how much they are trying to slow this thing down, i would be very surprised. this is the first ina would be very surprised. this is the first in a series of big brexit bills for a weakened prime minister who has no majority to get stuff through, and labour, the lib dems and the snp can chuck rocks at it, and the snp can chuck rocks at it, and it will cause a massive problem. do they then want to get the public in flamed if they will do that at every single step? more and more people will get upset. it is called sovereignty! yes, but a lot of people have voted for this. taking back control for our parliament!
heart attack weight longer for an ambulance. a big shake—up of the 909 service, it will slow things down.l million calls a year which they say will no longer... if you are unconscious or will no longer... if you are unconscious oi’ not will no longer... if you are unconscious or not breathing, they will send an ambulance within seven minutes. ina will send an ambulance within seven minutes. in a way, you are hoping to be not breathing, so you get an ambulance! a strange thing to hope for! they say it will help target the more serious ones, cos at the moment there is an eight minute limit. but they are doing is to send out a motorbike in the initial incident, which gets there on time, with a motorbike cannot get you to hospital, so they give you in initial care in some cases, but they cannot transport you. this is a function of cuts? they say not. it is backed by the ambulance chief
executive 's and the british heart foundation and the strokes association. the nhs have got these people onside before they have announced that, because they knew that headlines like this... it does not look great in a headline. we don't know yet what the impact will be, but their assessment says it will save lives. if the call is made and you are still breathing, but 30 seconds later you are not,... the assessment is wrong. how is these are bribing shops to stop them taking cash? they would prefer to get rid of cash. they say to shops, we get rid of cash. they say to shops, we will give you this free stuff as long as you make sure there is no cash anymore. they are doing it in america, handing $10,000 each to 50 small businesses. it will be coming here at some point, and you can see
how it is attractive to small businesses, but there are people who do not lose —— do not use cards. businesses, but there are people who do not lose -- do not use cards. we are not all as modern as you! you go toa bar, are not all as modern as you! you go to a bar, you buy a drink, are not all as modern as you! you go to a bar, you buya drink, it are not all as modern as you! you go to a bar, you buy a drink, it is done. it is easy for you to take your money. i want it to be easy. how do you put money in a charity tin? direct debit every month. an a nswer tin? direct debit every month. an answer for everything! very benevolent! finally, sport, venus rising, johanna konta out, but not down. straight sets, johanna konta lost to venus williams. venus williams is the favourite again now. incredible how she is still so powerful after so long. it is a lovely story for her to be back at the top again, and forjohanna konta, who has been on a fantastic i’ui'i. konta, who has been on a fantastic
run. there was a point in the first set, a break point, if she had got that then, it would have been very different. but in the big games, you have to take the chance. venus has come in under a cloud, after the crash. she has had problems, it is good to see that it will be good for her, and everyone is behind it. i printed up a load ofjohanna konta christmas t—shirts. printed up a load ofjohanna konta christmas t-shirts. you still have it wrong! i cannot shift them now! just change the date, next year. we got excited. you cannot get too overexcited. i don't care much for tennis. she is in the top five now. we still have jamie murray and heather watson in the doubles, with their partners martina hingis. and

being we have got spots of rain as we being we have got spots of rain as we head towards midnight across parts of yorkshire, maybe down into lincolnshire, possibly into the midlands, but the south stays dry. not as cold as last night. the weather is looking fine in northern ireland, scotland, through the lake district, yorkshire, the northwest, maybe a rope shower here and there, but that is it. we start the day on a fine note. a bit more cloud across east anglia as the overnight rain clears out into the north sea. for the rest of the day, little change. some fair weather cloud across most of england and wales. in the north—west, the weather will turn, so we expect another weather front coming through
northern ireland for the afternoon, and into western scotland. for wimbledon, variable cloud, with sunshine. it is looking quite across north—western areas, but the bulk of the country is looking dry. saturday, a line of weather fronts in the atlantic moving towards north—western areas. generally, what is happening on saturday is there is a lot of low cloud rolled wing of the atlantic, with outbreaks of rain, it will be muggy, murky, misty, but warm. it will improve a bit on sunday. still fairly cloudy and muggy across southern areas, but turning fresh and bright. i want to show you how hot it has been in spain today. a record. this is bbc news.
i'm martine croxall. the headlines at 11:00: just weeks after president trump said he'd pull america out of the paris climate accord, he hints at a shift in position. he also defends his son's meeting with a russian lawyer during the presidential campaign i think from a practical standpoint most people would have taken at that meeting. it is called opposition research. the brexit secretary urges all mps to work together as the government publishes the repeal bill. an american doctor says he may travel to the uk next week after telling the high court there's a chance terminally ill charlie gard could benefit from an experimental treatment. and on newsnight, the government tells us that in the wake of the grenfell disaster, it accepts that building regulations are not up to the job and will be fully reviewed.
