m; hf ‘ar generational war they are pulling out your —— you are less likely to be able to afford a house in your verrattis than you would have been in the 1930s. verrattis than you would have been in the 19305. a weird strategy, picking on your core voters?l picking on your core voters? a very strange strategy because the tory demographic is 58 and over. but if they are going to survive, carry on, they are going to survive, carry on, they need to woo the young voters, but i think what is really interesting is you have a communities secretary setting out his red lanes for budget before the chancellor. this really underlies the huge problem in the cabinet, eve ryo ne the huge problem in the cabinet, everyone is freelancing at the moment, and the minister is seeing shows was to be in charge of housing, so you have three people looking after it but no one sorting it out. itjust feels more uncertainty in the market. what is going? does it get anybody any confidence when theresa may says she is taking charge, given there are one or two other issues she needs to be addressing as well? it is good to know her mind is on this matter as well. but as you see, there is so
much out there. you have your housing minister. let them get on with it. and also, as we said, we are ina with it. and also, as we said, we are in a very uncertain market. it fuels uncertainty, so not great whichever way you look at it. and it fuels resentment as well. it does, and it suggests she does not have control because in a majority government you would not have the communities secretary freelancing 605 before a budget. a lot more wrong with the housing market than those who already own. and once you're that ladder it is already cheaper than it was for your parents... they have moved a little bit, haven't they? the telegraph. endgame for mugabe, and this is interesting. anyone watching zimbabwe for a long time would probably wonder whether the end of the mugabe resume would ever come about, after 37 years, but still seeing this is not a coup? even on
the front page of the telegraph, they are seeing this still may or may not be the end for mugabe, but the question is even if he does go, who comes in instead, and will that really make a difference to people in zimbabwe who have had a terrible time? we talk about inflation going up time? we talk about inflation going °/. time? we talk about inflation going up 7%, but basically there are prices doubled overnight sometimes, going through the roof, a dreadful time yet they have all these great resources on their doorstep. not a revolution. a change of personnel but the guy they are seeing was going to take over was mugabe's right—hand man for a0 years, surreally are we going to see much ofa surreally are we going to see much of a difference? if mugabe even steps down and let's be anyone other than his wife. not a revolution, change of personnel, but don't get me wrong, it does not feel like there is a massive changing of the guard at this moment. but he is still respected as a revolution are a large parts of africa because he brought black majority rule well
before motherboards of africa. sign a guess, and healed wider as well for someone propelling zimbabwe into a new era “— for someone propelling zimbabwe into a new era “ yes, for someone propelling zimbabwe into a new era -- yes, and he was also healed for. his health policies as well. but times have changed. 37 years there and i think people are regretting that. i suppose, can it bea regretting that. i suppose, can it be a peaceful change, the handover whoever takes it? a lot of western diplomats have been saying there are quite welcome to this change, but he has ruined that country so it is a long way back. let's stay with the telegraph and something a lot closer to home. car tax dodging sores since discs ask... don't laugh, it is difficult to see that headline! —— car tax soars. i always found the
car tax soars. i always found the car tax soars. i always found the car tax disc useful because it reminded you of when it was due, but now they send a reminder in the poster you can't pretend you don't know. if you read what they are saying they are saying the figures have tripled, it is a crisis, but then they go on to say that half of those who have not renewed their desks are actually less than two months out of date, so they mayjust have forgotten. i think you mentioned, giles, it has happened to you before. you do have your car taxed? i don't have a car any more, but, yes i think it is down to people for getting... you got hit by a car? no, hit by not having a car, because i don't have one any more. i think it is people forgetting, rather than being wilful. but it was meant to save money, getting rid of this paper disc that sat in the corner of your windscreen konta and it has not worked out. yes, but on the other hand we're not talking about the paradise papers here. no,
but we're supposed to pay because it helps the roads be safe. and perhaps it hasn't quite worked.|j helps the roads be safe. and perhaps it hasn't quite worked. i think it will take some time to bed in. how long? they were abolished three yea rs long? they were abolished three years ago! digital is the preachers oi’ years ago! digital is the preachers ori years ago! digital is the preachers or i think everyone needs to bed then. people perhaps don't like renewing online and all that sort of stuff but i like it so i am fine. let's look at the saudi story of the ft. saudi princes billions in exchange forfreedom... ft. saudi princes billions in exchange for freedom... hundreds of royals, ministers, businessmen being held in rather fancy royals, ministers, businessmen being held in ratherfancy hotels, it has to be said, giles, but there is a way to pay to get home. this is all about the saudis massively overhauling their regime, rooting out corruption, saying we are in a brave new world, we want to engage with the west. i think there is a
recognition in the country they will move from a oil based economy to a knowledge—based economy and they are saying, come here, invest, we are open and transparent. they are trying to send out a very clear signal to the rest of the world. huge proportions of their wealth they are expected to hand overfor wealth they are expected to hand over for their wealth they are expected to hand overfor theirfreedom? wealth they are expected to hand over for their freedom? £300 billion in total, and we were talking to about £107 million being evaded in car tax then we have this much here. you're right, giles. this is about the fact they can't rely on oil any more. what do you do instead? tap up some relatives by locking them up in the ritz—carlton and making them sleep on their mattresses. that is apparently what it takes. but in some cases they are accused of corruption over many years, are to be? they are, and it is including the lloyd ashley what has happened “ over many the lloyd ashley what has happened —— over many years, aren't they?
they are, and it is intriguing, what has happened there. it is a quick way of dispensing justice, though, isn't it? and earns a few quid. we don't know all the details. do we ever with saudi arabia? they are trying to move forward. ultimately we wa nt trying to move forward. ultimately we want them to engage with us. it is better for the rest of the world if they do so we should encourage that. but then you get into the territory of selling arms to countries like saudi arabia, and then seeing what is going on with a proxy war in yemen. of course, and i think the wider issue, how do we get them to become more progressive in terms of human rights. they have now allowed women to drive. we should keep pushing them forward. it is not a perfect situation that that is the situation with a lot of other countries in the world. but the golden crown prince says, i'm going to step up hostilities with iran... and the tensions in lebanon.
absolutely. let's look at the sun. cocoa nuts, it says. cash to the west indies palms. yoga, eels in the philippines... money not being well spent if the subtext here. this is aid money from britain. the budget is coming up next week and i suppose this is going to the fact that money is really ring fenced for aid and they are asking if this is the right way to do it. eye—catching, isn't it? yes, when we are going through the most complex negotiations of our lives and people are questioning how every penny is spent, yes. a lot of people question whether we should spend money on it when there are a lot of problems at home but david cameron was very clear it was an important part of spending, wasn't he? when you were there? yes, it is about enhancing democracy in different parts of the world, accountability and transparency, how you spend that money, but we should not have back from that because there have been a few mistakes. it
isa there have been a few mistakes. it is a good thing. it is also about engage with local communities, isn't it, and finding out exactly what they want in terms of aid, rather than imposing it in some superior manner? exactly, we think you need coconuts to developers that is what we will do. but the wider point here, one of the things we here at the moment, we don't want people migrating to europe in particular because they are in search of a better life. one area which you can actually make a difference in is by making life better in those countries, and perhaps then they won't want to move. that is one of the arguments anyway. it is a really tricky one, as you say. it was a big plan for the cameron government but now we are much more cash strapped, and going forward... a lot of people will question why £13 billion is being spent overseas. let's finish with pidgeley of the mail —— mail.
only the mail. don't worry. who is tortzilla ? only the mail. don't worry. who is tortzilla? is only the mail. don't worry. who is tortzilla ? is bring only the mail. don't worry. who is tortzilla? is bring this only because you have onlyjust seen it. lives at the bottom of a french family's garden. he sounds quite harmless. what does he do? he bites the toes of people who dare to go into the garden. have you ever had a rogue pet? not a rogue porters! we had two —— not a rogue tortoise. we had two —— not a rogue tortoise. we had rogue rabbit, and she would be upset when you're upset her plate of grain and all that sort of stuff. she died a long time ago. she was a 705 rabbit, so probably not kept... 705 rabbit, so probably not kept... 705 rabbit! chri5 read rabbit? 705 rabbit, so probably not kept... 705 rabbit! chris read rabbit? she would be kept in hotel conditions these days, wouldn't she? anyway, we
will find out more, no doubt about tortzilla when we leave you and we actually have time to read it. that i5 actually have time to read it. that is all from the papers tonight. don't forget you can keep up on the bbc news website. bbc.co.uk/paper5. and if you miss the programme you can watch it later on iplayer. gile5 and dhar5hini, you coped well with that programme. get used to it. don't lose your shirt. we are going to say goodbye. the week got off to a cold and frosty 5ta rt and the week got off to a cold and frosty start and i5 the week got off to a cold and frosty start and is about to end that way. colder air across the uk, but 15 cel5iu5 in southern england today before the cold air came in. but it has been moving south with thi5 but it has been moving south with this cold front, leading edge of cold air. for northern england,
ireland and scotland, temperatures dropped away through the afternoon, back down into single figures, so thi5 back down into single figures, so this is how it looks through the night. we will keep a stiff breeze blowing across scotland. gales for north isles and showers to come here. elsewhere, though, might wince under clear skies and the temperatures here, holding just above freezing in towns and cities but in rural spots they will be a few degrees below freezing going into the morning's commit, scraping theice into the morning's commit, scraping the ice of the car, widespread frost to start on friday. yes, it will feel very different compared with recent mornings, but once the sun is up recent mornings, but once the sun is up there will be plenty of blue sky to come across much of england and wales, good sunny spells and northern ireland, maybe a shower on the coast, feeding into cumbria and lancashire, but most of the shows will be in north—west scotland. still windy here and still gales into the northern isles, adding an extra chill. almost across the board those temperatures have dipped down
into single figures. again there is some of that sunshine. going through the evening, temperatures will drop away the evening, temperatures will drop r the evening, temperatures will drop away very quickly with the frost taking hold again for some us but in the saturday we are expecting a bit more cloud around and that will be the case here and in parts of england and wales with one or two showers to be found as well. it will feel a bit cold and looks like the best of the sunshine will be in scotland, and northern england during the afternoon, but still blustery showers, wintry on the hills and the far north of scotland is still quite windy, in the north—east of the uk, going into sunday. then a frontal system in from the west, with some uncertainty about timing but it looks like it will bring cloud and some patchy rain gradually from the west on sunday meaning the best of the sunshine will be in the east after another frosty start. but it looks like as we go from sunday into monday we will bring some milder air backend. the cold air may still be working across much of scotla nd still be working across much of scotland well into next week. this is bbc news.
