to reverse the disease. that has put a question as well, so do get in touch with us and your thoughts on that. and finally, the daily mail. it reports on the standing ovation given to an mp here in the uk, after he revealed in parliament that he was hiv positive. so let's begin. nina trentmann is from the wall streetjournal. is back to go to the papers. just stop the tv debates, just ask very basic question. why is the tv need a television debate when only 650 people are able to vote and perhaps what they see two days later? perhaps the idea is to give theresa may and also jeremy corbyn perhaps the idea is to give theresa may and alsojeremy corbyn another venue may and alsojeremy corbyn another venue to talk about their vision for the uk after brexit and of course, for mps it is quite important to have some sort of feeling that they represent their constituents and so, i guess this is presenting another chance for people to make up their mind what they think about the brexit deal and also that
5:46 am
afterwards, it is another week until the boat is supposed to take place in parliament, so for them to get in touch with their parliamentarians and to come to some sort of, so that they are getting a feel and what people think. of course, people are, there have been people saying it is actually unnecessary because at this point in time, people that are watching this will not be able to vote on it again because they will not be a second referendum as the government has stated repeatedly, but i guess this isjust government has stated repeatedly, but i guess this is just an attempt by the government and also by the opposition leader to voice their opinions again and for theresa may, of course, to make sure that she is gaining enough votes, which seems unlikely at this point in time. about 100 tory mps have been saying that they are not going to vote for the deal. isn't it a little bit sad that this is all sort of really ended up being in that sort of
5:47 am
picasso, talking about whether itv 01’ picasso, talking about whether itv or the bbc or anywhere else is a better place to host the debate? surely that is the real issue, that has been, that has really been hijacking any news that we might guess, any further clarity on this deal and decisions that are being taken. well, i guess it is also coming on the back of people having had brexit news about one half years andi had brexit news about one half years and i guess the media, and i myself, i myself, iam reporting and i guess the media, and i myself, i myself, i am reporting on brexit as well, and we had been finding it increasingly difficult to find new angles, given that there is so much uncertainty about what is going to happen and also what the details of the plan will be. so yes, it is maybe not the greatest fact that we are focusing so much on whether this is taking place on the bbc or on itv, but i guess it is also highlighting the fact that we are just running out of stories. let's talk about the front page of the natural times. no surprise really given the audience that they are living with this story, that
5:48 am
deutsche bank offices were raided by police yesterday, probing these dirty money allegations. —— financial times. why should the general public care about a story like this? well, i suppose it, it is another stain on deutsche bank because there is more, there are more allegations in this comes on the back of previous probes about money laundering, so it is not necessarily something which is totally new to deutsche bank. i think for the average consumer or customer comments so far matter matters but of course if they are forced to pay another penalty as they did in 2017 where they paid $230 million to us and uk regulators, that means in the long and that they will need to make sure they are cutting costs somewhere else and for the average consumer in germany, deutsche bank used to be in pretty much every little city. they are no longer doing that. of course,
5:49 am
it also means an overall decline in deutsche bank's business, which could be coming on the back of these probes, it is not necessarily going to be good for the customer who wa nts to be good for the customer who wants the banks to be where the customer is. so, even though it is not necessarily direct directly impacting people because this is people's money, not the average saver so people's money, not the average saver so to say that has been laundered, but is the money of affluence kinds that has been placed on the british virgin islands betting you long on, yes, it does impact the average customer. 0k. let's talk about the story that is fast company and the website there, they say that airbnb is going to start designing houses. it is not just a company that is providing housing, it is a company that provides the houses itself. quite interesting, this is its new initiative called the act yard. to
5:50 am
design and prototype new ways of building and sharing homes, this sort of strange convergence of business models. well, yes, i guess an interesting development given of course that we have seen many companies that started with one thing ina companies that started with one thing in a branching out into other things, like for example amazon and others, and of course airbnb is one of the companies that has started out the renting out revolution that we have seen in many cities across the world over the past couple of yea rs. the world over the past couple of years. they are now saying we are endeavouring to design and prototype new ways of designing and sharing houses in a more sustainable, eco— friendly way, and of course, that is something which will i guess be welcomed, especially as airbnb faces pressure from regulators all over the world about creating issues in cities where people are claiming that they have driven up rents by creating this demand for flights that was not there before. surely when you look atjust that was not there before. surely when you look at just the that was not there before. surely when you look atjust the uk example, just to take that one, there is a huge lack of affordable
5:51 am
housing. the government house builders are not building nearly as many houses as required, and they are falling short of the target by something like 100 times as something like 100 times as something ludicrous. what we have any faith that the likes of the airbnb are going to be creating the sorts of homes and houses that need? well, based on what this story is saying i would not necessarily think so, even though this is talking about shareable houses, so that is something of course which people in times like these might be looking at more. but i guess to me, it sounded more. but i guess to me, it sounded more as if it was targeting a market where people are looking to construct extra housing in their backyard or elsewhere, to host airbnb guests. so i guess it is not going to be the solution to the uk's housing problem, unfortunately.” think it is going to take a little more thanjust think it is going to take a little more than just airbnb, i suspect. let's talk about this story that is on the bbc website, it is on the
5:52 am
daily telegraph, lots of papers today, about liquid diets. u nfortu nately not today, about liquid diets. unfortunately not be fun kind, the less fu n unfortunately not be fun kind, the less fun kind, soups and shakes and the like, potentially being described thousands of people with type 2 diabetes in a bid to reverse the disease. quite interesting and potentially quite effective. yeah, i thought so too. i have to admit that i have not really done a liquid diets, i have known people who have done it and have for weeks and weeks just drank these shakes and had soups, it is supposed to be very effective and people who have taken pa rt effective and people who have taken part in similardiets effective and people who have taken part in similar diets have lost about two stone, which is of course quite significant. i think it is just interesting to see that the nhs is driving this new ways to tackle diabetes, which is growing problem not just diabetes, which is growing problem notjust in the uk but also other western and a societies. yeah, really interesting. they were saying that around 200,000 overweight adults in the uk will be enrolled in two schemes that offer wearable technology, i can't mention the
5:53 am
brand but you can guess what they are, 1—to—1 coaching and advice on healthy eating. this is all stuff we know, what is a need to be prescribed to the nation? well, i guess as with many things, yes, we do know is, but it helps that there is encouragement or do know is, but it helps that there is encouragement 01’ even do know is, but it helps that there is encouragement or even some sort of external pressure. and of course, given that there is so much cost associated with diabetes and the spread of diabetes, it is not surprising that the nhs is going down that route. i thought it interesting also that the text is saying the fact that it is something which is not resembling food, normal food, the fact that it is shakes and soups should make it easier for people to not fall into any, fall into any temptations that regular food but in smaller portions might provide to them. i think that is an interesting one as well, i think it is worth trying. let's talk about this one as well, a labour mp receiving a standing ovation in the
5:54 am
house of commons yesterday after revealing that he is hiv positive. he says better to live in knowledge than to die in fear, what a sentiment. yes, ithought than to die in fear, what a sentiment. yes, i thought it was quite encouraging statement and the fa ct quite encouraging statement and the fact also that he disclosed his, it is, the fact that he is carrying the virus. i also got was really interesting that he was saying that of history, they take is not detecta ble of history, they take is not detectable in his blood, which means that, well, it is a signal that you can actually live with hiv and have a good life. thank you very much. really interesting and thank you for your thoughts today. do stay with us here on bbc news. a lot more to come, including a little more business news. i will see you soon. hello there. yesterday was a really dramatic day of large and crashing waves and some very strong gusts of wind.
5:55 am
the top gust was recorded on the western edge of the isle of wight, at the needles — a gust of 82 miles an hour recorded here. 72 in plymouth, 72 as well in capel curig, in conwy in north—west wales. there were a number of sites that got into the 60s too. the area of low pressure that brought those strong winds was this one just heading to the western side of norway at the moment. the main parent low though is still to the north—west of scotland, and that is what's continuing to bring these strong winds at the moment. at the moment we are seeing a number of heavy showers flowing into the western side of scotland and it will stay very windy here. windy too for northern ireland, north—west england, even further south. the winds are noticeably brisk, although continuing to gradually ease down. there's still some showers coming into southern wales, southern counties of england. so it's not entirely dry, but if you're heading outside over the next hour or two, it's not particularly cold. temperatures between 4—7 degrees for many of us. those strong winds will continue
5:56 am
to push in across scotland, particularly the northern isles, actually, where i think we could get gusts as strong as 50—60 miles per hour, perhaps even a touch stronger than that in the northern isles for a time. band of rain pushes through here, followed by plenty of showers. so that's how things will start off, with those brisk winds continuing to blow the showers in for much of the day. good news though, with those strong winds is the downpours don't too long, they move across the sky pretty quickly, with some brighter spells interspersed. showers continuing for wales, north—west england. and still a few across southern counties of england, although these will probably get a bit rarer as we head into the afternoon, the weather becoming a bit drier. it's mild for most. temperatures reaching a high of 12 degrees towards the south. and then we'll take a look on into the all—important weekend forecast. we're looking at this next area of low pressure bringing another bout of rain across england and wales. that rain's going to be very slow to clear its way eastwards. so across east anglia, south—east england, it will be raining for much of the day. the rain quite slow to ease up as well across northern counties of england, once its set in here. further north, for scotland and northern ireland, there will be some sunshine around but we are into the cooler air here. temperatures between 6
5:57 am
and 8 degrees celsius. still pretty mild though further south, with temperatures reaching a high of around 13 degrees. there's more rain in the forecast for sunday. clearing away quickly across eastern areas with some sunshine following. it will be very windy. uncertainty how far northwards this band of rain though will reach. could push well into scotland as we head into sunday so there could be some rain around at times. temperatures on the mild side, looking at highs of around 111—15 degrees. that's your latest weather. bye for now. good morning. welcome to breakfast, with charlie stayt and naga munchetty. 0ur headlines today: a big plan to tackle type 2 diabetes — liquid, low—calorie diets will be offered to thousands with the condition in a bid to reverse the disease. in argentina for the g20 summit but still campaigning on brexit, theresa may urges her rebellious mps to think about the interests of their constituents. we are here at newland fish market
5:58 am
in west cornwall to talk to fishermen, local businesses and local people about what they think about the latest progress or lack thereof. banking on us not switching. the big banks still hold around three quarters of all our current accounts.
