11:33 pm
the express accuses jeremy corbyn of environmental hypocrisy, claiming he left a diesel car waiting outside his house for a0 minutes before getting in for a 6 mile trip to westminster. meanwhile, the mirror has an image of the health secretary, jeremy hunt, taking a nap in a hotel, which the paper claims was taken while thousands marched through london calling for more nhs support. a lot of brexit but a lot of other stories so let's start today with the sunday times. this is a story about the doping scandal hitting the winter olympics which are about to kick off in south korea, this is a story that the sunday times have done a lot of these expose is about alleged drugs cheating in sport, this one says secret data has
11:34 pm
exposed the extent of the doping for insurance skiers at the winter olympics. —— interrupts. —— endurance. this is exactly the kind of scrutiny they don't need. it sta rts of scrutiny they don't need. it starts on friday, i believe, the opening ceremony, and 10,000 blood test, the sunday times is claiming it is seen from nearly 2000 winter olympians. what they are saying is one third of all metals, 99 golden medals, one in the olympics and world championships in 2001 by skiers have test results which could be deemed to be suspicious. they say some of them in fact there is only a one ina some of them in fact there is only a one in a million chance that the blood result, as a result of natural circumstances. absolutely. a credible detail saying with some of them their blood was so dangerously sick at the skier should have been in hospital rather than competing. it's extraordinary. of course the numberone it's extraordinary. of course the number one country they name is
11:35 pm
russia. and of course lots of the russian entrance, they were not going to come in fact, they are not going to come in fact, they are not going to come in fact, they are not going to be able to fly under a russian flag and it so cheap, you remember, there were stories about secret agent swapping shoots and blood tests so that they would come out with as many winners as possible —— sochi. it's terribly upsetting, this, because i can remember when the doping thing hit and my son was about 13 or 14 and how could you are this was at the olympics, how can you explain that the person who actually breaks the wire and gets across first actually is the loser because he is taking something that would enhance and i mean, it is out of control now. i mean, and it is sad because this is going to be our only respite from brexit is watching people flailing down and it is coming to snow here so we can get ready here to prod us. —— slalom down. you know that it is fake.
11:36 pm
ready here to prod us. —— slalom down. you know that it is fakem seems to be so prevalent in other sports that you begin to question everything that you see. some countries who cared to do you remember those little gymnast from eastern europe were never allowed to grow up and have periods because they had to stay small, tidy and flat. it is extraordinary when you talk about the fact they have approached the sponsors of the game, coca—cola, mcdonald's, visa, to say it -- coca—cola, mcdonald's, visa, to say it —— we're not sure if you're responsible about this, they have put their money behind the olympics and it is a risk than knowing what happened last time. they probably thought it had been taken care off and obviously it hasn't. let's have another look at the sunday times again but this time another story about, of course, brexit. how could about, of course, brexit. how could a saturday night go by without a discussing it! in view of next week, the cabinet subcommittee will meet, they are apparently going to try to come to some agreement about what
11:37 pm
the future relationship will be. this feels like the moment where they are actually trying to bring they are actually trying to bring the two competing sides in the conservative party together and will have to come up with something but depending how you look at it, they are saying a dream team could be heading for number ten. who is in the dream team? it is like fantasy football! somebody has very strange dreams! boris johnson, football! somebody has very strange dreams! borisjohnson, vm, apparently, is the plan, jacob rees—mogg, the man who apparently thinks that treasury columnist are all against brexit and aren't up to thejob, for chancellor, all against brexit and aren't up to the job, for chancellor, that all against brexit and aren't up to thejob, for chancellor, that could be interesting, and michael gove in their as foreign secretary. —— in there. what could be interesting, it'll give them a chance and mock up a wonderful picture. this underlines that we should be talking about the fa ct that we should be talking about the fact that the captain has to come together on wednesday and thursday and come up with a planned but instead we are talking about division and the fact that theresa may is facing a hugely distracting
11:38 pm
challenge at a time when we need to be talking about what the future relationship looks like. how will she square the circle? it seems impossible. whatever they come up with it will really annoy a large number of people in her party. this was always going to happen, there is a group of determined brexiteers for whom brexit means a complete break. i feel this has all been exacerbated by duff of swear —— davos where she wasn't involved in business and, i mean, davos is about to be about deals and trump wandered around trying to fix up deals and she had dinner with trying to fix up deals and she had dinnerwith her trying to fix up deals and she had dinner with her aides. it is a scary thing. the figures we are getting, first of all, why aren't these open? why have hidden? why is buzzfeed leaking some? and of course you and i know that the figures you get other once you put in. nobody is perfect. what you have to have involved is business, where, when the civil service or the brexiteers
11:39 pm
said this is what is going to happen to ourcar said this is what is going to happen to our car industry, you need somebody who is on the shop floor saying actually, we sell everything we do to europe and we will find it very ha rd we do to europe and we will find it very hard to sell cars that drive on the other side of the road to other countries. i mean, youjust the other side of the road to other countries. i mean, you just need that to be part of the square as they seem, i think, to be pushing this at people who are very, very pi’o‘ this at people who are very, very pro— brexit. this at people who are very, very pro- brexit. the observer as well, sorry, is just talking about brexit and jacob rees—mogg, the treasury and jacob rees—mogg, the treasury and whether they are deliberately coming up with figures that mean we should stay in the customs union all the rest of it, they are saying this is an ex— cabinet secretary sam is attacks on the civil servants are worthy of 1940s january. —— 1930s germany. in my misspent youth i was a treasury economist at one point i confess a treasury economist at one point i co nfess a nd a treasury economist at one point i confess and they are complex models and it is like cooking, you do to a
11:40 pm
certain amount getting what you put in. —— get out what you put in. it colours the picture somewhat but on the other hand and you know this as a public service broadcaster have to be in partial and so the civil servants. they are accustomed to it, they understand what is going on and i think it is firm language, i'm not sure it is entirely an accurate picture of what is going on but ultimately what you were saying, the problem really is we have a prime minister who doesn't seem to be engaging in there for everyone seems to be second guessing and not getting in the right way. and the problem is it is all taking a long time and 24—hour news business means people are impatient, they want stuff now. there has been the sort of gap while the prime minister has beenin of gap while the prime minister has been in china and it is, you know, where i'll be going, what are we doing? reading on, private parole firms failing to hit their targets on crime cuts, this is presumably about reoffending ? on crime cuts, this is presumably about reoffending? private companies
11:41 pm
which are apparently checking people by telephone, you know, phoning up and saying murdering anyone at the moment? no, i am and saying murdering anyone at the moment? no, lam having a cup and saying murdering anyone at the moment? no, i am having a cup of tea. this is -- at least it is not by text, though. i imagine that this isa by text, though. i imagine that this is a big deal to a private company, i don't want to knock a private company, the private companies say we can do this with a slightly less staff or people live and then you are doing by telephone, i'm in my answer probably is if you remember abu hamza, so disliked prison in america, but he wants to come back. obviously prison is not as bad as we think, they are flying drones in with drugs and television and the re st of with drugs and television and the rest of it. so maybe we have to change the way we regard presence. we need to move on quickly because the front page of lots of the papers has uma thurman who has made allegations against harvey weinstein, saying that he attacked her, he denies this, and in fact are said to be considering legal action against her. at yet another
11:42 pm
accusation in this story. a series of accusations, this is and people would remember she came out with a lot of instagram post towards the end of last year hinting that she was angry and should when she felt the time was right was going to tell and she has. to the new york times. these allegations against harvey weinstein but also talking about her experience after that when she went to make the kill bill films which of course he made. too? two. you think it is quite telling that she carried on working... if you are a 20—year—old and you have no money and no reputation than i can see you would but she is uma thurman, she has made quite a lot of money, been married to a film star, the idea that you would then carry on working... how do you keep that, have ukip being at the top of the game and getting those starring roles unless you keep going? lots of people happy. what is still to talk about but we are out of time i'm
11:43 pm
