tim, to the capture the capture in, tim, to the capture the capture the daily telegraph that the conservative minister sam has resigned in protest. you are keeping under your hat. i was told don't tell anyone at the bbc. you can now freely speak about it. tell us more. yes, minister has said he cannot support the deal and... quite right. the way of the present crimes. —— pros and cons. i can say that he has taken a stand and it's very significant because he is a minister and because this will dominate the news over the weekend. he has made a coherent and clear critique of the deal and i think a lot of people will be talking about that and this comes at a moment when the government needs supported can get. soa government needs supported can get. so a particularly bad moment for theresa may after going going around
10:46 pm
the country to drum up support. to put in the context of the daily mail front page the mail a couple of days ago ran with andrea saying i am staying in the cab and out there running with michael gove saying i'm staying in the cabinet. that's a case of dog biting man. minister resigns from the cabinet, that's a story because that's man bites dog. lots of those men have been that dog. there show show that is no consensus. people who are pro rex it cannot agree on this and people who are per remain in the country cannot agree. and there are people just crossing the floor if you like in all kinds of directions all the time. the other shows that a deal is absolutely brilliant because it is the perfect middle ground that everyone is upset about or that it's the worst of all worlds because it does not keep anybody happy.|j

suspect... i have not read the full thing. here it is. we have surrendered our voice come our vote and our veto. did you know that was the quote? i knew that and i knew that was the photo. with the remain or leave? the that was the photo. with the remain or leave ? the referendum that was the photo. with the remain or leave? the referendum which side was he on? ages shows where we are. the argument was it was a binary choice the referendum. here is michael gove sanctus the deal deliver 100% of what we wanted?, did not have 100% of the vote. that's not have 100% of the vote. that's not how leaving works. it's not that we could be 52% out of 40% in. that's the argument. they are concerned that the deal hands over so concerned that the deal hands over so much leverage when it comes to negotiations and a heavy prospect of being stuck in the backstop and plus
10:48 pm
there are some he guarantees of regulations when possible roles even for the european court of rights. they are saying this is not a 100% aleve and for them that the disappointment. no film and. aleve and for them that the disappointment. no film andm aleve and for them that the disappointment. no film and. it all comes back to the problems with brexit the whether the original referendum was tabled, held, organised and funded to some extent and also the way the words were written on the ballot paper. there we re two written on the ballot paper. there were two theoretical ideas but to the public and a choice. no clear manifesto was to either as to what would happen down the road. when is there ever in a referendum? nolan said the government should be in scotla nd said the government should be in scotland became independent and no one said that when i should have a pound or independent currency. it's a binary straightforward question. that's almost a terrible way of organising things. i want to move
10:49 pm
onto another story. before i did adjust the point of fact that he was adjust the point of fact that he was a remainer. joe johnson was also a remainer. let's move onto a committee different topic and the front page of the times has a story about a member ofjeremy corbyn‘s shadow cabinet digit says misled the public over her son's arrest. if this is the case of the secretary who the sofi the case of the secretary who the son ishmael was convicted recently of drug offences there was an awful lot of cove rage of drug offences there was an awful lot of coverage is this in the papers at the time and she was not terribly happy about any event i think it's to say. there were some concerns about when she had known about this upcoming trial because he was working in her office in a publicly funding position has her office manager. the fairly sizeable
10:50 pm
salary. what happened is he has been convicted and sorted out and had his conservative penalty. the media applied for the release of letters that went to to the judge in support of the young man in question pleading for leniency. those are normally withheld and not meant for public record left is a reason to release them. in this instance numberof media release them. in this instance number of media outlets bother there was a story there and said it should be openjust was a story there and said it should be open just as was a story there and said it should be openjust as because of the son ofa be openjust as because of the son of a shadow cabinet minister. the problem with that is she claimed to have know nothing about this trial and appointed him is very well—paid job and it turns out she did know about the trial coming up. the problem with this that i have is there was no need for her to try to hide the fact that she knew about it. it's her son and he's in a position of some influence in her office and of course she would know
10:51 pm
about upcoming trial and charges and i think arguably any parent would say of course you will write a letter of leniency and second anyone that has anything to do with employing people you could say that you can hide the fire them before they're convicted. it's not wrong to what that letter so why did she bother to claim that she did not about it when we now know that she did? it's a silly lie i think to get caught in. it wish he had handled the fallout of the story may raise some questions among her colleagues and labour party and the times reports it's was just reading and making i's own judgement. reports it's was just reading and making i's ownjudgement. i will remove the rudest words. their home last night she told a reporter of the times plasterer response the story that quote she should have come down here with a bat and smash your face come down here with a bat and smash yourface in. she told him to the reporter, to f off through a bucket of water at him and called police
10:52 pm
after accusing him of stalking her. and a played earlier was that the city things in front of a journalist that will end up in print. perhaps theissue that will end up in print. perhaps the issue with the whole story is not necessarily the original allegation. it's more she has handled the fallout of this particular story. anyone especially in the shadow cabinet position or a main government position should be aware that when a journalist to you and your home that is normal business and properly polite and civil. they are not breaking the law and the thing to do is to say no thank you, no comment, goodbye or not answer the door or something. other than going through this process and making it worse by calling the police and accusing them ofa calling the police and accusing them of a crime they have not committed, of a crime they have not committed, of stalking which requires several instances to prove it which is wasting police time which you do wa nt wasting police time which you do want to do. as a duty-bound to say
10:53 pm
that we have not ourselves seen these court documents and we have not ourselves spoken to kate. we are reporting what is being reported on the front page of the times. i'm sure we'll hear more about that story. let's move onto the front page of this. the story we have friends, the all day with rail fares rising 37% in a decade. friends, the all day with rail fares rising 3796 in a decade. they were going to buy i% injanuary which seemed alarming enough for me to discover that they have risen 37% in a decade is incredible. passengers can face a £10,000 a year commute. this is obviously very frustrating as people feel their pain more and more for services which has become a grizzly crowded and been hit with timetabling issues and also with industrial action. the same time they are paying more in some areas they are paying more in some areas they are paying more in some areas they are getting what's clearly a reduced and a poorer service. the
10:54 pm
question is who takes responsibility for this? the companies? it feels almost impotent when it comes to talking about who runs this and so what can be done about them? what is extraordinary is the resilience of the man in charge, the man who is supposed to take final responsibility for all of this still in hisjob. really quite encompass men. teresa has fewer and fewer ministers to choose from the states. as you are commenting on that to bring in the story in the front page of the ft which assertive related about crossrail. a chap who is chairman of both hs two and crossrail pointed to that only for weeks ago. this is a very well briefed and well sourced story. you'll put that on your front page story unless it genuinely is and you have cleared everybody. he's about to fired from both jobs
10:55 pm
have cleared everybody. he's about to fired from bothjobs because hs two already we know it's well over budget and it got officially extended it was so much there and they will now be £100 million per mile but you could build out of platinum and it would be cheaper. for weeks and his job and after chris has said he did very professional manner this will be a world—class manager in terms of a world—class manager in terms of a world—class railway and now it turns at the crossrail which we was already in charge of is having a massive nine—month delay and huge budget problems and suddenly going native country theresa may and have no confidence in this man. what is happening chris's mind the past for weeks where at one moment this man is the great white hope and the next moment it's all his fault surely there were some due diligence at some point and surely it's his to openin some point and surely it's his to open in charge of what's going on and has supervision of that. second
