de—escalate it? what has been a to release the pilot. a lot of significant rising tension over the a nalysts to release the pilot. a lot of analysts hoping this will de—escalate what has been a varying past few weeks? yes it well. the worrying situation this week. let's find out more about the situation in kashmir from adnan naseemullah, indian side has seen it as eyepiece who is a south asia expert and lecturer at king's college london. gesture. it has de—escalated tensions at the moment. yesterday thank you so much forjoining us. as evening, the indian navy and air force had ourjoint press meeting we look because those pictures, tell where they said that if pakistan us we look because those pictures, tell us what we are expecting will happen today. i imagine that we are going goes ahead with any further provocation, then we are ready to today. i imagine that we are going to see eventually the pilot crossing attack pakistan in always on the surface and under the sea and in the air. we do not see this as i and international border. i think what is the most interesting is the response from daily, in terms of com plete air. we do not see this as i owning the return of the pilot as a complete de—escalation. sort of diplomatic victory. the head air. we do not see this as i complete de-escalation. but for now, it has helped to de—escalate tension. for people who are not familiar to the background of this crisis, can you run us through what has happened. there was that attack on the military convoy on the 14th. of the major organisation that it was that attack when it all
supports the bjp party has been sort began, a militant drove into a of tabbing this as some sort of security convoy and eight killed a0 indian soldiers. this was the worst ever attack that has happened on victory for diplomatic efforts. we indian army in decades, in the last can take this as potentially a good sign that this has allowed india, as three decades. that escalated tensions. after that the indian side well as pakistan, to sort of declare reacted with air strikes, then the pakistan side reacted when they are some sort of modus operandi or victory. and then could potentially strikes. it has been developing story the iath of february. de—escalating the conflict. strikes. it has been developing story the 14th of february. it is a decade—old dispute over who really victory. and then could potentially de-escalating the conflict. of course we have seen this week a very has the right to control that significant escalation which has territory. but one of the things worried all india and pakistan's that worries people around the world and caused the big powers like the neighbours and worried people us and china to call for calm is the looking on from around the world. just tell us how you see the last fa ct us and china to call for calm is the few days going, in terms of the fact that both india and pakistan choreography of an attack or by india, in terms of forming the and nuclear states. that is true. that is the worry internationally. terror group, and then the pakistani we area that is the worry internationally. we are a few steps away from feeling that there will be that kind of response and the shooting down of
this pilot's plain. i agree escalation. but that is the absolutely that this started a international... there has been a little more than two weeks ago with lot of international pressure on the attack on a paramilitary convoy india to de—escalate tensions and not take this further. yes they are nuclear powers and... we come back in the indian state of kashmir. the to the scenes ofjubilation, we can indian response has been somewhat see here on the indian side as they more aggressive than we were expecting. and i think the key fact that which a number of commentators has mentioned is the fact that indian aeroplanes crossed not only wait for that pilot to come across. the live patrol, but international border which is in pakistani, is our just on the detail and the logistics of the next few hours and days, on the pakistani side they are talking about restarting some flights to pakistani province. that then of airports later today because they have been disrupted and talking about for resumption of commercial flights on monday. 0n the pakistani side they are looking to resolve course required to respond with a this today and over the weekend. on the pakistani side they are trying to de—escalate tensions. in fact even yesterday there were some peace pretty significant aerial response
marchers in different cities of pakistan calling for a de—escalation of tensions. there was a trend for themselves which then of course then led to the downing of the pilot. it no two are. but india does not look like it is in the mood to be is too early to say that one of the things that i think happened with absolutely quiet right now. people are very much in support of the army the downing of the pilot is that it will stop yesterday... you mention possibly broke the kind of war fever on india. of course india isjust coming intoa that the prime minister talking to on india. of course india isjust coming into a really, really competitive election season with his party workers, it is worth underlining that there is is election season in india. when modhi and his party is trying to get receiversjubilant election season in india. when receivers jubilant clouds on the border, this all drives into an elected after five years. that led to some media, big media frenzy for election moment. —— jubilant crowds. it isa election moment. —— jubilant crowds. it is a dilemma for president moore kind of a more and more aggressive sta nce to d. -- kind of a more and more aggressive stance to pakistan. i think one of the things that is been helpful is the things that is been helpful is the focus on the pilot himself and it is a dilemma for president moore d. —— prime minister modhi. it will his welfare and treatment and his return has moved away from a little
bea d. —— prime minister modhi. it will be a watch to see how he deals with this moment. do you know anything bit this either rattling that we saw in the last week. so in a way what about the choreography of what is we're looking at this border. as a going to happen or unfold over the face—saving exercise for sides as they try to... i think that is exactly right. i think that the next few hours, do we know about the pilot, what do we know about what india intends when he steps recognition, which is always, the across—the—board? india intends when he steps across-the-board? his family are across—the—board. he will be taken to the army base in amritsar and response for both pakistan and india then he has flown to delhi. then he is both military but also diplomatic. and the return of the will be going back home. he has downed pilot may be pointing towards a more diplomatic sort of effort to coming to delhi after that and i essentially establish... you have think that is all we know at the assessed political situations inside both countries in terms of an election season, what about the moment really. people are really
looking forward to having him back. political situation for imran khan. there is all this activity at the border. 0ne there is all this activity at the border. one thing to remember is that the focus of the tension is i suppose he took a risk yesterday cashmere. so over the last few days when he said he would do this and weeks, what has been the situation there amidst the unilaterally as a peaceful gesture. stand—off? situation there amidst the stand-off? cashmere have been tense. 0ne unilaterally as a peaceful gesture. one of the things that i think that people have been nervous because they know they are the ones that will be the first victims of anything happens at all. on the indian side of kashmir, they have been nervous. and on the pakistan side as well. the pakistani side of has been quite remarkable is the kashmiri people were happy that extent in which pakistan has been very united behind imran khan. that pakistan retaliate. but they see the also includes the pakistani military. and that actually has do not one—to—one between the two allowed imran khan to be, to speak countries. looking back to the wider with the sort of one voice of the frame for this crisis, is there any pakistani people which has been sign of anyone stepping up as their incredibly helpful in terms of, in leader side —— make leadership to terms of actually finding some try and resolve the underside and solutions to this to escalation. and underlying issues? the pakistani that became, especially apparent prime minister did say we should come together and talk about it. he after pakistan responded to indian air strikes with strikes of its own, was talking about by minister moore which then signals to both india and d. -- to the pakistani people that was talking about by minister moore d. —— prime minister modhi. pakistan is not incapable of
was talking about by minister moore d. —— prime minister modhilj suppose both government leaders responding to india. and that was an should think about the wider important statement. but once that framework. of course indians will be statement was achieved, then it was a lot easierfor statement was achieved, then it was a lot easier for people like statement was achieved, then it was a lot easierfor people like imran seeing the tough language, less keen khan as the prime minister to stand to allow the line to be drawn under forward and offer this olive branch. thank you so much for giving us your the whole affair. pakistan has the insights this morning. thank you very much. support of powerful players, it has the support of china and france and russia. it has a jigsaw puzzle eurotunnel has dropped around it which helps to bolster it a brexit—related legal claim in that conflict. yes. the indian against the government — minister of external affairs was in after ministers agreed to settle a summit recently with china and the case for £33 million. russia where chinese and russian the company was unhappy leaders have said they would support with the government's decision to award freight contracts to three ferry companies, including one that india in initiatives. this kind of didn't have any ships, to cope with a no—deal brexit. in the past half hour a government spokesman said the agreement had escalation as then seen recently. we been reached to ensure that vital goods would not be put into jeopardy do not know how russia and china how in a no deal scenario. they added that the prime minister much they will support pakistan. but had full confidence
if they support india? for both in the transport secretary chris grayling. countries it will be a really tough i've been speaking to our path ahead and stepping back and business correspondent, trying to really de—escalate tensions and find a solution to kashmir. in terms of the timing to adding that "settling find longer term solutions, it is unlikely to happen in the next few allows us to concentrate on the job weeks as india runs up to this general election. looking at that at hand of continuing with our no election campaign, is this something that the different parties are deal contingency planning". trying to use in their campaigning? well, the background, you may have heard of these ferry is it becoming an electioneering contracts because of the seaborne freight, that £13.8 million contract issue? a lot of experts do think to a company that had no vessels and has since been cancelled. that because both for modhi and but it is actually the original procurement process for the entire, all three contracts, there are three ferry firms, imran khan this is an opportunity to that has come under scrutiny and that has forced the government into this position. because what happened was, show themselves in strong leaders. is that late last year, the beginning of october and november, the department imran khan this is an opportunity to show themselves in strong leaderslj am show themselves in strong leaders.” am thinking about my parties inside for transport started going around india, how are they responding to two ferry companies in the uk, the strong leader bed that modhi is asking them whether they would pushing on this? they have said that like to bid for these extra capacity at ports, other than dover, to get medical supplies etc, over the channel in the event of a no—deal brexit.
now, it went to nine suppliers. it didn't go to eurotunnel. there was not an open procurement modhi and his party are trying to process because the government claimed it didn't have enough time. and eurotunnel challenged this in court. the trial was supposed to start today, but overnight the government play politics on the attack. still settled for £33 million. and i suppose the analysis must be that it's settled looking at these pictures, still because it was thought looking at these pictures, still looking at these pictures, still looking at this border, still it was going to lose? expecting at any moment the return of that indian pilot to indian i mean why else would they settle before it has even been discussed in court? people familiar with the case territory. and we have been saying, tell me that eurotunnel had the government over a barrel. the crowd waiting, a crowd which and they had the government over a barrel on a specific point. there were many points that eurotunnel were arguing. includes the pilot's parents and but one of them was that the department for transport had ample time to prepare for a no—deal brexit. expectations that he will be taken argubly they had since article 50 to an air force base, amritsar, to was triggered back in 2017 to think be debriefed by military authorities before returning to delhi. your of the possibility or potential of a no—deal brexit. and there is a very, thoughts at this moment, how will very high barfor a governing body that's awarding contracts to say, well, this was something this moment to be playing inside that was out of our control and we couldn't do a transparent procurement process, a full tender process because of these events. india, by those presumably who are and it was felt by those arguing watching the border. like we are on tv. it will be a big moment for for the government in defence, victory. they will see this as a big that that case would be very, very difficult to make,
to say that they had no time, that moment of victory for modhi. they no—deal brexit was an unforeseeable occurrence until late last year. are looking at him as a hero who could go inside pakistan, attack and also come back. the kind of videos theresa may s former chief we have seen of him on social media of staff, nick timothy, where he has said he will not reveal has told the bbc that theresa may what he was in pakistan four. he has always saw brexit as a damage limitation exercise . in his first tv interview, part not revealed details to pakistani of forthcoming bbc2 documentary following the twists and turns of brexit, he suggested her officials when they were questioning and other ministers attitude meant home. it is a moment of victory at the moment for endeavour. but for the government has not been kashmir, it is not going to be an prepared to take the steps needed easy solution. it is such a conflict to make the most of brexit. —— right complicated conflict. it here he is speaking to our political has taken editor laura kuenssberg (tx sot —— right complicated conflict. it has ta ken many —— right complicated conflict. it has taken many decades for india and pakistan to find a solution. thank how do you think she you for talking us through as we felt about the result? await that release. i think it was written on her face on the day. she was shocked, disappointed. tahir imran from bbc and i think worried. urdu is in islamabad. because she knew how difficult it would be to get brexit done what is the mood and pakistan as we with the arithmetic she inherited, and now it has become await this release? the mood here is slightly harder.
quite a lot of things went wrong with the election campaign, and i take responsibility for that, yes. what do you feel when you see her? slightly mixed because yesterday as someone who has been very close to her, and respects and likes her, to be honest, ifeel quite sad things started on a very positive about where we are right now. note and the prime minister imran but the big problem khan was praised for his bold stance and the way he delivered that is that many ministers, and i would include theresa in this, information or that breaking news as struggled to see any we see that he will hand over the economic upside to brexit. pilot to indian authorities. but ever since things have slightly changed because of the tone in they see it as a damage limitation exercise. india, the indian media, the way a member of the house of lords has been charged with two counts of attempted rape. south yorkshire police say former labour peer lord nazir ahmed indian media is portraying this of rotherham is also charged whole scenario. and the statement with one count of indecent assault. coming out of delhi that has two other men have attributed to prime minister modhi also been charged. where he said something about an all three will appear operation or something about a pilot at sheffield magistrates‘ court on the 19th march. and that is what basically become a salisbury is to be declared subject of discussion today in the decontaminated of novichok parliament where opposition leaders after almost a year—long military criticised the prime minister and clean—up following the
said that we should basically look sergei skripal poisoning. at this, that it is fine to hand the former russian spy‘s house over the pilots to the authorities and 11 other potentially infected sites are expected to be ruled about the opposition politicians again said that when the former safe on friday. military teams have spent 13,000 hours on the clean—up prime minister did the same thing he after mr skripal and his daughter was accused of treason and he was yulia were targeted with the nerve accused of being a friend of modhi. agent in march last year, which left them seriously ill. how is the government doing that that attack, of course, left them now. one question that came out which was unanimous that pakistan wa nts pea ce which was unanimous that pakistan wants peace and stability and the seriously ill. mood is mixed. television channels more than 5,000 online are showing footage of the convoy, grooming offences were recorded we do not know who is in that convoy by police in england and wales in the last 18 months. there is no confirmation. the convoy according to new data obtained by the nspcc — is taking somebody to lahore or instagram, facebook and snapchat were used in 70% of cases of wherever this transfer is going to sexual communication with a child. the charity accused social media firms of "10 years happen. yes, and we are still of failed self—regulation". ben ando reports. the nspcc describes it looking at the pictures there of the as the wild west web, and it is children who are falling border post, the punjab border on prey to online outlaws and being groomed. the indian side, as those crowds most are in their teens, but many are younger, wait for that pilot to return. 0ne one just five years old.
more question to you, and it comes of the big social media apps, toa it is instagram that has seen more question to you, and it comes to a point you were making, it is a very delicate moment for imran can. the biggest increase in abusers targeting children. but snapchat and facebook are also because i suppose the robust widely used, and between them, muscular approach that bulls pakistan and india like to talk and these three platforms account for 70% of reported cases at each other around the issue of of sexual communications being made with children. the figures were obtained kashmir, it makes it very difficult by the nspcc and freedom of information requests to police for any leader to appear to concede a point. yes. i think imran khan has forces in england and wales. the charity found that, between april and september 2017, paedophiles attempting to groom taken a very bold stand. it is one or coerce children into sex used instagram on 126 occasions. of the most i think people called it one of the best moments of his life, but in the same period last year, that figure had gone up threefold, to a28, and while girls aged 12—15 of his political life. when he went out of his way and basically are the most common targets, one in five victims forwarded a branch, an olive branch was aged 11 or under. in a statement, facebook said... to india. but i think with elections in india and different statements coming from different political parties and the statements made by the indian external affairs minister who is attending the conference
meeting which by a key stand has by cottage, that is where basically... but the nspcc says this is the result of ten years of failed self—regulation. that is not going to vitamin an easy it wants the rules tightened. the government says it is listening, and a forthcoming white paper spot. because before this thing will clearly set out what responsibilities social happened the crown prince of abu media companies have, dhabi came to pakistan and he was and the consequences of shirking them. very friendly with imran khan and there were praises about him being friendly with pakistan or the crown prince of saudi —— saudi arabia. both of these leaders are at the let‘s talk to will gardner, conference where they are talking the ceo of childnet — a charity that aims to make the internet a safe place about pakistan and the issues. but for children and young people. there is no presence from the we talk to the nspcc earlier, they pakistani side. so imran khan has done, dealt with this issue are fed up with what they see as a strongly. but it would be slightly difficult for him on the domestic failure of self—regulation. political front, how he will engage with the opposition who have said he are fed up with what they see as a failure of self-regulation. do you
has done it very quickly, he should share their views? i am startled by have waited for some time. some the numbers of saying this is an issue. here we have numbers there people are even calling that the pilot should be tried. there was a for which we can work with. perhaps petition in the high court which was not so surprised the use of the service that was highlighted. we know adults will go to where rejected straightaway. that sure some people are not very happy with children are so we need to take that into consideration. 0ur their things the approach that imran khan has that service can do, i am sure there taken. in the coming days we are going to see more coming out of are. we will be engaging in those conversations with the government and others as the white paper is fit that. and hopefully, if things calm down on the indian side, imran khan can say that his move laid off. tie together. do you think there are things that should be part of the here, thank you so much for that future? we should be looking at what industry should be doing. when new from islamabad. we will come back for more analysis when we see the next few hours unfold. let's leave users sign up to any service, they that story for now. the uk government has agreed know who they are in communication to pay eurotunnel £33 million with and they can opt into making after the channel tunnel operator things more public as in when they accused ministers of a ‘secretive' process to award ferry contracts to supplier in the event can make an informed decision. of a no—deal brexit. improving reporting flows, make sure with me is our business eve ryo ne improving reporting flows, make sure everyone is aware of how they can correspondent, joe miller keep safe. there are things that are who broke the story. practical steps that industry can so explain, first before we talk of take. we should notjust be looking
today's events, the background to the story. you may have heard of at industry to solve this issue these contracts because of the seaborne contract company that had because the risk is there, it will no vessels and has since been because the risk is there, it will be on this service and other cancelled. it is the original services that children are using. we need to make sure young people and procurement process for the entirety their parents supporting them, need to know the rules and keeping safe. do you think they do, young children contracts, this free ferry firms and parents, they understand the risks at the moment? we have some key steps that we want children and that has come under scrutiny and force the government into this young people to take and parents to situation. last year, the department for transport started going around to companies in the uk asking them whether they would like to bed for reinforce, such as not showing contact information online with people you do not know. arranging to these extra capacity ports other metres dangerous and if a young than dover to get medical supplies person is worried about anything over the channel in a no brexit. it they see online, speak turn adult. we need that adults and parents should be putting this into practice. what should adults and pa rents practice. what should adults and parents do if they are worried? they went to nine suppliers. there was not an open procurement process because the government claimed there should report it to see, it is a was not enough time. the trial was specialist agency who work with supposed to start today but
overnight the government settled for children and make sure there is a good response to £33 million. i the analysis might be that it settled because it was thought they would lose. people this. familiar with the case tell me the the headlines on bbc news. the indian pilot captured by pakistani forces has been released, according to local media. eurotunnel had the government over a the pilot‘s jet was shot down over kashmir by pakistani barrel. 0n eurotunnel had the government over a barrel. on a specific point. there military earlier this week. the government agrees to pay up we re barrel. on a specific point. there were many points eurotunnel were to 33 million to eurotunnel, to settle a lawsuit over extra ferry services, in the event arguing. the department for of a no—deal brexit. downing street says it has full transport had ample time to prepare confidence in chris grayling, the transport secretary. social media firms are urged to do more to tackle child grooming, for a ordeal brexit. they had since after 5,000 online offences were recorded injust 18 months. article 50 was triggered in 2017 to think of the potential of an ordeal brexit. there is a very high barfor a governing body awarding contracts to say this was something that was out of our control and we cannot do sport now. a transparent procurement process because of these events. it was felt by those arguing for the government that that case would be very difficult to make, to say they had good afternoon. no time that no—deal brexit was in the european indoor and see —— like unforeseeable championships, are underway this morning in glasgow,
occurrence late last year. is there with great britain‘s katerina johnson—thompson‘s amongst the early competitors. she‘s defending her title pressure as a result of this on mr in the pentathlon and equalled her season‘s best time, grayling. he has come under pressure in finishing second in the first event — the 60 metres hurdles. johnson—thompson is the event ona number of favourite in the absence of world grayling. he has come under pressure on a number of issues and we have and olympic heptathlon champion seen some on a number of issues and we have seen some of them. yes, he has. nafi thiam who‘s injured. the second event was the high jump. these contracts never seem to head johnson—thompson went one better in the highjump. she cleared a heigh of one metre 96, —— like leave the headlines. no we just off her personal best, to finish just ahead of her british team—mate niamh emerson. see the government has had to spend this money to make this legal you can follow the action over on challenge go away. and what is worth bbc two and on the website as well. manchester united manager pointing out, just because this 0le gunnar solskjaer may not be challenge has gone away, it does not staying at the end of the club mean another challenger could come beyond the summer but he is already out and have a go and say we were making plans for it‘s future. he‘s heaped praise on goalkeeper david de gea who‘s contract expires next summer, not approached and we should be reminding the spaniard awarded damages. of the support they gave him during his difficult early years thank you. at the club. however, injured club captain the high court has ruled that antonio valencia looks set to leave part of the government's the club soon with a contract immigration policy is in breach extension deadline of human rights legislation. about to expire. the scheme — known as right to rent —

to court to challenge viewers and listeners length to see the legality of the scheme. how it is recover brexit news year in the bbc. we will meet them in a moment. but first of all to of our reporters went to meet some of our so the government has now been told viewers to see what they want from in thisjudgment so the government has now been told the bbc in our coverage of brexit. in this judgment that if it wants to hi, my name is tony. i voted to remain in the eu. rule the scheme out to the rest of i believe the bbc coverage should the uk, apart from england where it have been more positive in terms is already enforced, it will have to of showing the opportunities of remaining as opposed to some doa is already enforced, it will have to do a proper evaluation to find out how discriminatory it is. this of the project fear aspects. hi, my name is marie judgment represents a damning and i voted to leave the eu. critique of government policy, they i feel the bbc's coverage of brexit would like the whole scheme scrapped has been scaremongering and very negative. because it says it puts their it's about time we showed landlords in a difficult position. the positive aspects of leaving the eu and getting the home office had said it is behind our businesses. disappointed by this judgment. they don't realise that educated the home office had said it is disappointed by thisjudgment. it insists its own studies suggest people in this country knew what they were voting for. there is no discriminatory intent on don't get me going on it. there is no discriminatory intent on the policy and it says it has been given permission to appeal but it has not confirmed whether or not it will do so. today, as part of a day of special coverage across the bbc, see what they have done is they have we ve recruited panel of audience scaremongered that much that members with a range
of views to help shape people are thinking, oh, the bbc‘s brexit coverage. we are not going to be to trade. my colleague rachel burden and we're not going to be able to travel. i have been in the business 20 years. is in the bbc newsroom in salford. we are british furniture manufacturers. sam‘s company is based in wigan. brexit will mean big changes but on reflection he thinks it will be a good thing. thank you. it is a typical day here most people think brexit has been a negative because everybody buys in salford. slightly different because we have invited members of from europe and they think our audience to tell us what they europe is the only place in the world to buy anything. it's the opportunity we've got to be think how the bbc have done things able to start saying, do you know what, there are people in the uk who produce what we want here. before we speak to our and produce it well. well the view from marie, panellists, we sent out some of our the owner of this company and from many others seems clear — reporters to find out what they want the coverage of brexit from the bbc. hi, my name is tony. has been too negative. i voted to remain in the eu. there has been too much of what many call project fear and there should i believe the bbc coverage should be more about the benefits have been more positive in terms of leaving the eu. not everyone agrees, of showing the opportunities tony for sure thinks of remaining as opposed to some that way more attention should be given to the positive impact that of the project fear aspects. investment from the eu has had hi, my name is marie on this country and what happens and i voted to leave the eu. after it has gone. i feel the bbc's coverage of brexit has been scaremongering there‘s not enough information and very negative.
it's about time we showed the to give a balanced view. positive aspects of leaving the eu and getting behind our businesses. in terms of why we‘re leaving, they don't realise that educated the benefits of that. so in the absence of not enough people in this country knew what they were voting for. information, we should be staying. don't get me going on it. we have come to the new extension of manchester‘s metrolink. this network has been assisted with eu cash as well as access to preferential eu loans. what they have done is they have we have seen a growing role, scaremongered that much that haven't we, of the eu investing in our cities over the past 40 years. people are thinking, oh, so we have been in receipt of a lot we are not going to be to trade. of money over a long period of time? yes. now we‘re leaving? and we're not going yes. to be able to travel. 0k, thank you. i have been in business 20 years. for tony, the eu has reinvested we are british furniture uk money in areas too manufacturers. sam's company is based in wigan. often neglected by westminster. for marie, that‘s money the uk needs brexit will mean big changes to spend on its own terms. but on reflection he thinks it it's true the eu does spend will be a good thing. money in great britain, most people think brexit has been but at the end of the day, a negative because everybody buys if we didn't have to give so much things in europe and they think europe is the only place we could spend that money on ourselves and keep britain great. in the world to buy anything. i don‘t believe westminster it's the opportunity we've got to be
able to start saying, will plug that gap. do you know what, there are people there are clear benefits for staying in the uk who produce what we want in and being a member of that club. if we leave, i believe we will lose. and produce it well. well the view from marie, the owner of this company and from many others seems clear — the coverage of brexit of course we are always interested has been too negative. in what you have to see here in the there has been too much of what many vbc and particularly here when call project fear and there should everyday we look for your views and be more about the benefits thoughts on social media on a range of leaving the eu. not everyone agrees, tony for sure thinks that we attention should be given of subjects. —— bbc. we get to the positive impact that investment from the eu has had on this country and what happens inundated with hundreds of messages, phone calls, messages on social after it has gone. there's not enough information to give a balanced view. media whenever we discuss it. we in terms of why were leaving, the benefits of that. have our wonderful panel of so in the absence of not enough listeners and viewers. we have been information, we should be staying. we have come to the new extension of manchester's metrolink. this network has been assisted together all morning and you are with eu cash as well as access to preferential eu loans. com pletely u nforg etta ble. tony we have seen a growing role, haven't we, of the eu investing in our cities over together all morning and you are completely unforgettable. tony and the past 40 years. marie we heard from you in that so we have been in receipt of a lot piece. you had mixed ideas in the of money over a long period of time? way the media has dealt with the yes. brexit subject over the years. can i
now we're leaving? come to you, mary. have we given you yes. 0k, thank you. for tony, the eu has reinvested uk money in areas too neglected by westminster. a slightly different impression? slightly. i am a slightly different impression? for marie, that's money the uk needs slightly. iam not a slightly different impression? slightly. i am not bad really to to spend on its own terms. it's true the eu does spend tell you the truth. to be honest, money in great britain, but at the end of the day, if we didn't have to give so much you have to start talking positive. we could spend that money on ourselves and keep britain great. we are leaving. you have to start i don't believe westminster will plug that gap. there are clear benefits are staying in and being a member of that club. if we leave, i believe we will lose. talking about the benefits of we always welcome your comments. we have discussed brexit in great depth here. this morning it is an idea to leaving. we are not doomed at the give you the audience members at end of the day, to be honest. you‘re home what you would like to see and feeling as it is too skewed one way? it is. you need to get solidarity, hear from it. tony get behind each other. and also home what you would like to see and hearfrom it. tony and maria both here. and also margaret. tony, now remainers are quite patronising. especially the mps. we understand it is leave and we will go with that.
no you will not. you will not go with it at all. you are stilljoking —— like discussing it. you have seen a little bit of what with it at all. you are stilljoking -- like discussing it. it's a joke. ican be -- like discussing it. it's a joke. i can be quite patronising at times, can tie. i think sometimes you have it is like on the inside, as it changed your view on how the media to agree to disagree. i think we have presented brexit? we have given need to have a decision, it needs to —— might been given the opportunity be made and it needs to be stuck to. there was a lot of information that to give our view. we have only seen was held back, that was not passed down the way it should have been. a small slice of what the bbc can people might be changing their minds and does do on a daily basis which has been very interesting. margaret, is that you want opinion, you want now which they are entitled to. to hear from politicians, is that you want opinion, you want to hearfrom politicians, you want fa cts to hearfrom politicians, you want facts and details, what are you after? i would personally like fax. i know the bbc can only present what they are only told as well. the people might be changing their minds now which they are entitled tom is really what they want to do with government are keeping us in the the information. tony, sometimes we doubt very much. i do think it is hear that people want their dry fa cts hear that people want their dry facts and the detail. 0ther getting a lot more relaxed about hear that people want their dry facts and the detail. other people wa nt to their presentation, sol facts and the detail. other people want to hear the debate and getting a lot more relaxed about their presentation, so i am quite... arguments. where do you stand? the piece that i did yesterday on the i have had a change of heart about metrolink, there is a lot of information on how money is spent and how that is received but not eve ryo ne and how that is received but not everyone knows how that is spent. the bbc. all have you. that is not a money that has come from the eu and bad thing. what about the invested in the uk. that is notjust
politicians we see on the media. the grants, but the loans. the information i have gleaned from have we had clarity? no, not at all. monday through to friday, it is what i wanted to see. hopefully that will open up people's eyes to see there is more to it other than yes or no. we do not get a balanced or measured for me, i think the whole process of view in terms of what the actual pros and cons either moving out or doing what we have done over the staying is and hopefully the pieces la st doing what we have done over the last week has been beneficial for we have been involved in will give me. and diane hoping that her people a chance to get a different comments will be beneficial for a lot of people. there is a lot of view than a normal view foot you. but it is only a skewed view. nobody hostility. is it getting to the has really spoken about that detail, stage now where you feel we have to no one has spoken about that in detail, which i think is the proper get kind of over that, we have to view. it seems like we have only work out a compromise. do you think it is possible? i do not know if it is possible but it should have been. we should have had these facts spoken about brexit and the last few before the vote. what do you think years. do you think there has been was missing? i think they gave us any progress made? after today i the wrong information. who is they? would say yes. but before today i the mps with the nhs money and what would say yes. but before today i would say yes. but before today i would say no. i had a lot of answers was going to europe. and also i did for questions that i had. so, yes,
but at the same time people just expect the government to have far wa nt but at the same time people just want an answer. we do not want a maybe, we don't want an f, we don't more plans in place but obviously they expected a romaine vote and wa nt maybe, we don't want an f, we don't want a back—and—forth, wejust maybe, we don't want an f, we don't they expected a romaine vote and they got a lead for. they have been want a back—and—forth, we just want a nswe i’s. want a back—and—forth, we just want answers. and everyone wants answers. trying to catch up ever since. you everyone wants... what is your view? think politicians were blind to a certain extent? yes. i think the ido everyone wants... what is your view? i do not want to just hear what i wa nt to i do not want to just hear what i want to hear. you want to be challenged? i want to leave. their lack of a plan will have major repercussions for everybody going vote was cast. unfortunately it is forward. and for me the failure and so red grapes in westminster. you even taking on board the negotiations we have now, if those are not agreed, we are trusting and cannot start saying we want to know relying on an individual to negotiate on our behalf who might not be here in six weeks. where do the vote, it is a democracy, you we go then? you do not think theresa may‘s position is secure? very much. is there a sense of optimism are pessimism for the future?” cannot have another fort. we are is there a sense of optimism are pessimism for the future? i would like to think there's brexit would leaving. we want a positive spin on not create such huge divide. why what will be great for britain when we leave. we do not want to hear to negative nurse. there are a lot of positives. we do not hear from should it create a divide between businesses who are pro... journalists might say they are here people. it is a decision. these two for a positive spend but convey the
fa cts . for a positive spend but convey the facts. we get a huge amount of correspondence hereby lots. i will years have created such a divide read a text to finish, i believe the amongst people and friends. years have created such a divide wto rules which over 100 nations use amongst people and friendsm shouldn‘t really be that way. that will be fine for the uk. roughly 50 is probably a nice note to leave it other nations have a combined deal. on. thank you for all your contributions today. we really do appreciate it. as well all the contributions we get in today. this why cannot the uk go ahead with from one viewer, the country is already divided. it will clarify that? i honestly do not know why what people feel no. from angela, i feel now the same as i did when the more people aren't angry that the decision was announced. i am having people who campaigned for us to leave had no plan. brexit is my citizenship ripped away from me. unprecedented and there is no plan and now we're looking at a cliff this from tom, the tories wanted to edge. the part—privatisation of the probation system in england and wales has cost taxpayers almost half—a—billion pounds own brexit. this would have given more than anticipated. consensus before trickling article 50. it took over a0 years... the national audit office says the government set itself up to fail by rushing through the changes and awarding contracts politicians are arrogant liars is on a payment—by—results basis. what he says. join in the conversation, keep it going. it is for the next few weeks, years as
now, let's speak with tania bassett of napo, the probation union. well. thank you very much. now it‘s time for a thank you forjoining us, what do look at the weather. let‘s cross over from the newsroom. you think of this report? does it match your experience? a lot of cloud around but there will absolutely. we have been warning the government about these proposals and be bright and sunny spells. in northern ireland later today, we implementation of the reforms in will see rain move in which will 2013. we gave them warnings it was a push its way eastwards into scotland, england and wales. disaster waiting to happen. this report confirms what we and other a mild night, temperatures between stakeholders have been saying. the four and a mild night, temperatures between fourand nine in a mild night, temperatures between four and nine in the south—west. we idea of marketisation probation was doomed to fail. it is not a have some strong winds on the way. marketable thing. they have created low pressure is moving in quickly a market but haven't managed it bringing wet weather into northern ireland. drier and brighter for a well, and despite repeated warnings time elsewhere ahead of that. as the from the inspection the private rain arrives, it will be accompanied sector were failing. the public by strong winds up to 65 miles an sector were failing. the public sector sidejust isn't sector were failing. the public sector side just isn't sustainable and the report highlights how many hour. into sunday, we have another issues there are.
area of low pressure. storm freya. iam issues there are. i am interested in looking at what the minister rory stewart has said bringing severe gales which could cause some problems. in response to the report, you says, we are monitoring a0,000 more offenders than in the past, this is good for public safety. hello, this is bbc newsroom live. the headlines. we never argued against supervising short term sentences and to bring the indian pilot captured by pakistani forces is being released, that into the remit of probation. according to local media. the 35 probation trusts told the the pilot‘s jet was shot down over kashmir by pakistani military earlier this week. the government agrees minister that could be done under to pay up to £33 million the current budget. there was no to eurotunnel, to settle a lawsuit over extra ferry services in the event need to privatise and split the of a no—deal brexit. downing street says it has full sector. we could have managed those confidence in chris grayling, the transport secretary offenders serving short sentences easily. what we have seen with in his first tv interview, legislation is the revolving door theresa may s former chief of staff nick timothy has told the bbc for prison has speeded up. there is that the prime minister always saw brexit as a "damage a massive increase in recall is to limitation exercise". prison, a rising prison population, i think it was written
and a struggling probation service. on her face on the day. she was shocked, disappointed. are you glad to hear the minister and i think worried. because she knew how difficult it has stepped in to enter contracts would be to get brexit done with the arithmetic customerfor has stepped in to enter contracts customer for acknowledging the she inherited, and now it has become slightly harder. social media firms failure? you has said, we take the are urged to do more to tackle child grooming, after 5,000 online offences findings seriously, we have set out were recorded injust 18 months. proposals for the future of probation. is there a recognition?” probation. is there a recognition? i think so. the report clearly states the the high court has ruled that part of the government‘s ministry ofjustice needs to pause immigration policy is in breach its plans to retender the contracts of human rights legislation. this year and reflect on what can be the scheme — known as right to rent — requires landlords in england learned. you acknowledges it has to establish the immigration status failed and the contracts will end of prospective tenants. the measure was introduced by theresa may when she early. the idea of re—marketing them was home secretary. and re—tendering contracts but on a bigger scale, is of great concern to john stewart is policy managerfor the residential us. we cannot see that any landlords‘ association. remodelling of these contracts will make it any more sustainable or your immediate response to the
ruling? effective. we urge the minister to we welcome the response, from the sit down with stakeholders, pause outset, we said landlords should not the current plans to re—market, and be required to be immigration bring probation back into public officers to carry out these checks. ownership so we can get on with the we felt landlords as they sought to critically important job of stay on the right side of the law supervising clients in the community and protecting the public. you needs would be cautious and legislation to listen to the professionals now. would be cautious and legislation would create discrimination. mistjustice spencer seems to have and look at moving forward in a agreed on that, you says, the scheme positive way to make sure probation is effective. thank you forjoining us. introduced by the government causes them to do so where otherwise they and in sport. would not. how does it cause landlords to discriminate? the european indoor championships can you describe the process? the have got under way in glasgow. process is a document driven, great britain's katerina johnson landlords are required to check the thompson has started the defence of her pentathlon title at the european indoor championships immigration status of all by equalling her season's best prospective occupiers of a property which means seeing original in the 60 metres hurdles. she is the event favourite. the documents, and the prospective te na nt documents, and the prospective tenant in person and checking them against the documents. depending on
the documents produced, you may need pentathlon high jump is she is the event favourite. the pentathlon highjump is currently taking place. great britain has only one, or a combination, some give an unlimited right, others give performed very well so far,. a time—limited right which means landlords need to carry out katarina johnson—thompson has made a follow—up checks. the problem arises positive start. we are watching the where landlords are not familiar with documents. we have found women's 800 metres heat at the landlords being cautious are more moment, these are live pictures from willing to accept prospective te na nts willing to accept prospective tenants with documents that they the bbc sport website. and the men's recognise. principally, that is a uk shot put about to start. passport. that causes problems for people from overseas who do not have auk people from overseas who do not have a uk passport but other forms of id, 0le gunnar solskjaer may not be and fora a uk passport but other forms of id, and for a substantial number of uk citizens who do not have a uk staying at manchester united. passport, landlords had to go to manchester united manager 0le gunnar solskjaer has heaped praised his goalkeeper david de gea, other document this which brings with the spaniards contract at due to expire next summer. into play documents in combination. solskjaer has called him "the best

with the eu after the end of this month, a closely watched survey all of this was terrifying to me. of factory managers and so... says that optimism is at its lowest since 2016, and thatjobs are being lost at a rate not seen for six years. raw materials are being stockpiled one, of course, the idea at record levels, but one brightside of going to jail, two, the idea is that the prices of those of being pulled away from michael. materials are rising at their slowest since 2016. now, this man, this otherworldly figure, this god to me who had now become my best friend, no way was i ever going to do anything that would pull me away from him. seamus neavin is chief economist and, um, so... at the manufacturers' organisation make uk. that training started day one. what does this tell us about the it continued all the way through, state of uk manufacturing? all through years and years and years, and then when the first allegations popped up in ‘93, the pmi stats show a weak i was already ready for it. performance for the uk economy. they are marginally in positive territory but as soon as the allegations due to unprecedented stockpiling popped up, michael upped his training of me tenfold, and was calling every day, and would coach me for hours as to what the cops imperfection —— in preparation for a are going to say, how they‘re going to try and do it, no—deal bedsit. 0utput is expected how they‘re going to try and break to decline in coming months —— you down, "they don‘t have anything it‘s all lies."
