facebook and twitter did appear and admitted their mistakes. now it's mr pichai's turn, and he shouldn't expect an easy ride. and finally, as we near the end of 2018, time magazine will announce its person of the year. they've published a shortlist of ten, included are donald trump, robert mueller, christine blasey ford and meghan markle. we will look at that list. with me is priya lakhani, founder and ceo of century tech, a uk based education technology platform. nice to see you and so much to talk about. i do not think we will get through all these! in france, president with a new deal. he's really trying to appease those struggling. he is seen as an elitist

5:47 am
when he ran for presidentm majority. he did get a big majority when he ran for president. it is just the way things have turned upon him but he has declared this is a state and economic emergency. he is rescuing his presidency. this unrest we have seen for the best part of a month in paris and other cities parrot france, it was not organised by one particular union but it was well spread. they have got tax changes, policy changes and that is a pretty incredible. i was in brussels and we were stopped because people were protesting. if they see change occurs, they will be encouraged. we talk about brexit, all the papers have this all over the front pages for good reason. bloomberg talks about the canon being kicked down the road. quite a
5:48 am

5:49 am
side letter? she is the most determined prime minister i have seen determined prime minister i have seen since the day i was born and she wants to see this deal go through. whatever she can get in terms of assurances s0 through. whatever she can get in terms of assurances so she can get enough votes to get this through in january. what do you want to happen? i wish this had never happened in the first place. i want a united country but that is very idealistic. a united country leaving europe? most agreeing we are divided.“ a united country leaving europe? most agreeing we are divided. if we end up even with people cite, we will have a lot of angry people. —— vote. no matter which way we go, there will be unhappy people and in two yea rs' there will be unhappy people and in two years' time if we end up with a backstop kicking into place, you can
5:50 am
imagine how many people will be upset with that. in terms of running a business, iwant upset with that. in terms of running a business, i want certainty. a third of my people do not know what is going to happen because they are european, they are engineers. i am not saying that iraq not enough people in the uk but —— there are not. interesting to get you take with what is going on with huawei and the chief financial officer meng wanzhou who and the chief financial officer meng wa nzhou who is and the chief financial officer meng wanzhou who is fighting for her freedom, as it were. the china they are walking as serious tightrope and it brings to the fore one of the main issues and reasons why the white house is at odds with china in terms of trade. this is further strain on the relationship. the us alleging she conspired to use a
5:51 am
subsidiary buying millions of dollars into or on which violate us laws. they have arrested her while changing planes in canada. this relationship is just getting worse and worse. they had the trade wars, this sort of pause and suddenly this happens and this affects us tech companies. however we resolve these, what then happens to relations and these tech giants in the us who rely ona these tech giants in the us who rely on a really strong relationship with china. the ramifications and ripple effect a pretty huge for apple and technology companies but at the same time the us is saying these guys are not playing by the rules and if they

are violating sanctions we cannot turn a blind eye or can they?” are violating sanctions we cannot turn a blind eye or can they? i do not think you can turn a blind eye to it. the law is pretty strict when it comes down to the us and iraq. the point is that this is a wider diplomatic issue and this is just one of the pieces. which is why the market has reacted so strongly. sundar pichai, the chief executive of google is in the chat today. it was an empty chair last on which was quite amusing. this is very much before handing control to the house of representatives to the democrats, the game to look at political bias as the essential issue. accusations of google skewing search results
5:53 am
towards the democrats. google wants towards the democrats. google wants to go back into china, having left china, it is called project dragonfly. from the last couple of stories, you can imagine how that will go. i would like to see what the questions that are like. sometimes when the questions were asked people seemed not to understand how tech companies work. it will depend on how intelligent the questions. i think you will do just fine. he has held lots of meetings with republicans behind closed doors. the time person of the year will be announced today. last year will be announced today. last year it was the #metoo movement. this year, when you look at the nominations, donald trump, vladimir
