5:45 am
gun advocates say sharing the blueprints online would mean the government could no longer effectively ban them as people could make their guns at home. independent online, where a report finds meat and dairy companies are on track to be the world's biggest contributors to climate change due to emissions. on top of that, companies are being secretive about their pollution. and finally on bbc news, just in time for the start of summer holidays, some aviation woes. ryanair cancels up to 600 flights affecting almost 50,000 passengers while easyjet claims industrial action by french air traffic controllers has cost it £25 million. so let's begin. with me is financial commentator david buik. david, let's get stuck in. let's go. so, the independent, also other papers, the telegraph and others focus on what borisjohnson had to say, we were all waiting for his big speech. it came yesterday, the four foreign
5:46 am
secretary, he didn't mince his words, as ever ——,. ten days of silence, which was deafening. what was interesting in the house of commons is all the supporters packed the benches, but the remainers weren't there —— former. it wasn't like robin cook criticising tony blair over his foreign privacy, this was saying how disappointed he was. i didn't eat it asa disappointed he was. i didn't eat it as a challenge to his leadership —— policy. —— didn't see it. that opportunity has gone. it was a wonderful piece of rhetoric if you could be objective and not listen to the context, the permanent limbo, the context, the permanent limbo, the stealthy retreat. he can deliver a speech. absolutely. that's for sure. many are listening saying, hang ona sure. many are listening saying, hang on a minute, not so many days ago, the week before last, you agree to the chequers compromise. use all the gesticulation in the garden with
5:47 am
the gesticulation in the garden with the hands flying around. that you agreed to. it wasn't an easy deal to pin down —— you saw all the. a couple of weeks later he is saying the whole thing is a disaster. he's been foreign secretary. we've had a government that's been reeling since that awful general election result, which made things so inconclusive. there's been no clarity on anything. as we spoke a few minutes ago, the time to get tough with the eu was 18 months ago. that doesn't mean we don't get tough if they're going to mess around with the white paper we've got, and we don't say seriously, listen, no deal is on the table, please think about it, it would be a disasterfor everybody but we're not going to be messed around completely, we will come out worse than when we wanted to leave. is it possible to come out better than we were? marginally. i can't see it being hugely beneficial. the one thing i'm very encouraged by is
5:48 am
the rest of the world will be a great place to trade with, there's no question. when you look at growth, sally on in the eu, it is quite low. do you think we are as an attractive option if we're not part of the eu? —— when you look at growth, sally, in the eu, it is quite low. japan siding with europe this week. they are very pragmatic people, the japanese. they have cars and a massive things in this country. they are worried. they would have to be accommodated. it is politics. they have to be accommodated with so much technology. that's the tightrope the prime minister is trying to walk. agreed, i don't want to be negative about the future. it is fantastic looking at the whole world. the way things are handled you will see a dip, but long—term, there should be confidence. we have to get over the
5:49 am
short—term pain to see the long—term gain? we have to get some resolution agreed. clarity will make people put their hands in their pockets and invest, without clarity we will drift. there can't be anything worse for the country. the financial times looks at the day ahead for dominic raab, he is meeting michel barnier today, but at the same time he's publishing something like 70 documents explaining how a disorderly brexit would affect a wide range of sectors and actually he's doing that but also the european commission's expected to publish its white paper today as well explaining how eu governments need to get ready for a no deal. absolutely, ports, airlines, border control, air pollution, trade... this is necessary, isn't it, for companies, individuals, government is to get ready for worst—case scenario? as prime minister may said, we should be positive, but
5:50 am
this should have been an option on the table a year ago, saying, listen, this is serious and if you don't this is our white paperfor leaving. we don't want to use it but if you push us that way we can. now i think dominic raab is in an invidious position, he the threat of no deal on the table to get people to focus on what isn't a great deal, but it has missed everybody‘s lives around for the last 18 months. we made a decision on the 23rd ofjune, the country is fed up and we need to get on with it. you're not the only person to have said that to me on this programme. i'm sure. you're not alone there. the washington post, a story that is very scary. they've done a whole profile of this young man... tony wilson. indeed, who has come up with a system of 3d printing guns. it was inevitable, wasn't it, that this would happen. you were telling me before, i didn't realise,
5:51 am
you can make houses. indeed, people are moving into 3d printer homs. this is feasible but he has come up with blueprints that can be e—mailed, shared on social media —— homs. sent far and wide to anyone who might want to make a gun. a printed gun. —— homs. who might want to make a gun. a printed gun. -- homs. this has been going on for six years. the fed were horrified at the possibility. at the time of the 0bama administration, they were trying to cut down on guns after the huge problems. they took down his website, which is coming back online at the beginning of august. the one thing i wouldn't be that frightened about, it is a horrific possibility, but it's the cost. apparently it is absolutely off the scale. 0ne cost. apparently it is absolutely off the scale. one can hope that would be a hindrance. but that won't necessarily last long, technology gets cheaper and cheaper. at the end of the day, this whole guns duration will have to be dealt with in the us with what's been going on in the us
5:52 am
in the last ten years. for sure, another layer of compensation when it comes to policing it. let's look at the independent online, looking at the independent online, looking at meat and dairy companies to surpass the oil industry as the world's biggest polluters. this feature looks at why they're likely to go in that direction and also why many organisations and companies are being secretive about their image and is. they don't want to draw attention to themselves. the independent has always been good at this kind of thing —— their emissions. when pollution is a major problem throughout the world whatever you think about climate change —— pollution is. dairy and meat companies are probably greater contributors to emissions than the oil industry, frightening. looking at china, the us, the eu, canada,
5:53 am
brazil, argentina, new zealand. at china, the us, the eu, canada, brazil, argentina, new zealandm is widespread. the developing world, the across—the—board. is widespread. the developing world, the across-the-board. but the two countries that care the least are china and the us. the us are better. the chinese authorities would say they care deeply. and in the us they would argue they care deeply. have you been to pittsburgh in pennsylvania and other places? looking at the money they put in the pot, that says something else. looking at bbc online, ryanair cancelling flights over cabin crew strikes. ryanair cancelling flights over cabin crew strikes. rya nair has cancelling flights over cabin crew strikes. ryanair has had to take on board working with unions, a whole new world for michael 0'leary because he wouldn't accept unions for many years. he has and they have got strike action happening. he took a lot of stick six months ago, lack of pilots, this time it is cabin crew. they are having working conditions which are totally unsatisfactory. interesting it
5:54 am
should be the iberian peninsular mainly protesting. 50,000 people, thatis mainly protesting. 50,000 people, that is a lot, that is very damaging, particularly in this holiday season. as you came up as well with easyjet, the wretched french are doing it again probably for the 25th year running, i don't know their problem! in france, it is the air—traffic control. they have strike action that comes and goes, as you say, but it's always that peak season that it impacts the likes of easyjet, which has a big presence in france. we will have to leave it there. lovely to see you, sally, thank you. if you're travelling by air with a low—cost carrier across europe, check before you leave. that's my advice. i will see you soon. hello there. i think there's a little bit of something for everyone in this
5:55 am
