good morning, welcome to breakfast with charlie stayt and naga munchetty. politics as yet another teen dies in the uk. our headlines today: let's move on to the ft now, the european central bank took theresa may urges european leaders a sharp u—turn yesterday by reviving a plan for cheap loans to agree to last—minute changes for eurozone banks. changes on brexit. the new york times asks why it's the eu says she has until the end of today to make fresh proposals. taken so long for marvel studios more than 7,000 head teachers in england write to to make its first film millions of parents warning that focuses on a woman, that their schools are facing that of course ties in with a funding crisis. the british government ramps the release of captain marvel today! up its campaign for the release and international women's day of nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe and your t—shirt, bev. fromjail in iran, and finally the times. granting herformal diplomatic protection. now greek doctors have some health with this week that dole at six from advice for middle—aged britons, who are told they have high blood lifetime we took the police, victims pressure: try an afternoon nap! — what can i think we are all in need of a bit more sleep at this time in the morning. with me is bev shah, who's chief executive and founder of city hive. iam going
i am going to have a nap later on. i am going to have a nap later onli think i will as well. a power nap. we will close with that, but to start with some of these stories that have been playing out, this story in the irish times, i think my papers are out of order. here we go. these numbers are really quite staggering, aren't they? this is a poll that was conducted over monday, tuesday and wednesday of this week. we believe the accuracy level is estimated to be plus or minus about 496. estimated to be plus or minus about 4%. so this is how voters in northern ireland would vote if it comes to brexit, and when it comes toa dup— comes to brexit, and when it comes to a dup— tori brexit. 77% are satisfied with the uk government. —— dissatisfied. 67% dissatisfied with the way the dup is representing northern ireland. and 67% want the uk to stay in the eu single market and customs union to ensure they will be no hard border. so the
majority supports a very soft brexit with no borders at all. this is quite different from the picture in the republic of ireland. yes, what is interesting, the survey was done face—to—face and that is why they can be so face—to—face and that is why they can be so accurate face—to—face and that is why they can be so accurate about it being correct, but also, what i understand is that only 30% of northern irish people voted to support the dup and supported them in the election, even though they won so many seats. so actually, these numbers feel about right. from what i understand, for the irish and the northern irish, not having a start—up of the troubles again is what is very important. —— troubles. and job security, what they would rather have an border on their island is one between northern ireland and britain. strikingly, the poll shows that in the event of a hard brexit more voters would favour checks on goods between great britain and
northern ireland then would favour checks at the border. very interesting, that. and even some support for unification of ireland, as well. and increasingly, actually, in the republic, where they would be voting about 50%, or roughly half, in favour of a referendum on this, it thanks quite a picture —— paints quite a picture of ireland, and of the dissatisfaction across the uk, no matter where you are, with how the uk government has handled brexit negotiations. i can imagine that. the uk government has handled brexit negotiations. ican imagine that. if you are living over there you are not only in distance, you are far away from westminster, but also all the decision—making. if you didn't vote to remain, and you didn't vote the dup, then you probably feel very isolated, and a lachlan is to your neighbours who are only across the border. —— and a lot closer. i can imagine the frustration of the
people in northern ireland, not having an answer and actually being a tool that the negotiations. do you think theresa may is going to get any think theresa may is going to get a ny a nswe i’s think theresa may is going to get any answers when she talks to eu leaders again today? i mean, she is looking for last—minute concessions from brussels. pretty unlike that she is going to get them, isn't it? they are working over the weekend on this. i can't imagine they have kept anything back that they haven't already offered. i am presuming they have to get the 0k from all the other member countries. i mean, i would like to think there is something, so we could start to move forward , something, so we could start to move forward, but we won't know until she comes back. no, we won't, and time ticks on. where are we in terms of the diary, with both and things for next week? we have a vote next week on the deal again, and i believe if that doesn't go through then it is time to look at an extension. because the no deal situation now seems to be completely off the
table. that is not good for the eu either. so the numbers, looking at the way people are voting in parliament and the new kind of independent mps, it looks like it will probably go against mrs may's deal. again, the mps have always shown, you don't know until the day when they are going to vote, whether it is going to be party lines or not. exactly. this comment is striking. a conservative former cabinet minister said it was like the last days of rome, it was difficult to see how theresa may would last many more weeks. that sort of ways into the thinking on this, that while rome burns, and a terrible story on the front page of the metro, yet another stabbing in london, and people are playing politics on this, the chancellor, philip hammond, saying yesterday that cash set aside to cope with the no deal brexit could have been spent on things i tackling knife crime instead. the cuts to policing have
been happening long before brexit. this is, you know, it is a shame that he is using this horrible situation of the escalation of knife crime throughout this country to bring brexit and money for no deal and all this stuff into it, because the cuts that we have seen throughout this country, you know, to schooling and the nhs and policing, it is not something that has happened overnight because of brexit. it is such a shame they are using that. this is a real issue and a real concern for people. if you cannot let your children out at all because of a fear that they will be knifed, and i have to young children, this is something that deserves more than the one day summit they have talked about. it is an action that needs happening, and this is more police on the street, real police, not just this is more police on the street, real police, notjust a visibility, the voluntary constabulary that you see around. this is real police. we saw a few months ago, police were
attacked by people when they were trying to intervene, and people stood by and filmed it. and the advice was that the police should intervene. you know, we need to go back to where we had enough police on the street, and that takes time. the cuts have meant they have had to lay off so many police, recruitment and training, it all takes time, this is going to take time to filter down. but we also need to look at deterrence. there has been a lot of research around, what are you do to actually stop these children sort of doing this? they are children, in effect. doing this sort of thing. and actually, when you see again from the funding cuts, community centres and youth centres and youth programmes, shutting down, when you see all those programmes, you know, thatis see all those programmes, you know, that is what we need to bring back, as well as looking at it across the piece. let's move on and talk as quickly as we can about the
financial times. this is yesterday's news, isn't it? what the european central bank is discussing, performing a u—turn in terms of stimulus measures to head off what is effectively a technical recession across the eurozone. it was expected, but not yesterday. i think a nalysts expected, but not yesterday. i think analysts have been forecasting this happening may be around june. i think what this shows is that they are worried about slowing down, you know, with everything from brexit and the economy trade, yes, let's just pump it in now. i think it was the timing of it that was unexpected. he is called super mario, isn't he, mario draghi. superheroes, let's move on and talk about captain marvel. focusing chiefly on a woman for the first time. the question posed by the new york times is what took the studio so long. i have seen your t—shirt today, it is international women's day. it says that a mother's places in the boardroom. yes, it is interesting. interesting timing from them. for me, it feels like... a
little bit too late. i mean, captain marvel, it is great to highlight women on this day, but there was a big backlash against wonder woman, the un chose her as an ambassador and they got a big backlash from their own employees for choosing her as an ambassador. i understand the movie isn't great. you havejust got another amazing woman with an amazing figure and all the rest of it. you know? what i am excited about, actually, is a movie coming out with sony later this year, a superhero called faith who is a bit more rounded and a bit more of a real woman. that is what international women's day is all about. this year's theme is about violence and better, men and women adding together. —— about balance.
hello. if you thought thursday was windy, get used to it. very blustery weather on the way all the way through the weekend into next week. unsettled too, wet at times. a bit of a lull though as we start friday. frosty, but sunny for many of us, but clouding over with rain later. here's a look at the satellite picture. this area of low pressure has brought the windy weather, the wet weather in places during thursday. a bit of a gap between weather systems now. we are in that gap as friday begins, but we're in a cold gap. you can see the blue showing up where temperatures will be at their lowest as friday starts. fairly widespread frost around, bit of scraping the ice off the car, a little misty in places too. but actually a lots of sunshine for most of us at the start of the day. already a bit of wet weather though into the western isles. we see more cloud pushing across the uk during the morning and then further outbreaks of rain spreading from west to east as the day goes on. becoming increasingly light and patchy as it does so. and it's notjust rain, the hills of scotland, north of the central belt, will see a bit of snow out of that as well.
it's not going to be as windy as thursday, though it is still breezy out there. temperatures mostly around 7—ii degrees. a bit of snowfall also into shetland before that system begins to clear away. as we go into friday night, still some showers pushing in towards the north—west of the uk on the breeze. wintry on the hills. it's not going to be as cold as friday morning, by the time we're up and about on saturday for the start of the weekend, but it is going to be an unsettled one, with low pressure close by all the time. the atlantic in charge of the weather, pushing in disturbances occasionally. at the very least that means we're going to be getting some showers, carried on strong to gale—force winds. it will make it feel quite cold, even though temperatures will not be too far from average. some wet weather at times, notjust in the form of rain but some snow, more especially on hills, but also some sunshine occasionally too. the best of the sunshine will be across the east and south—east of the country during saturday. showers already towards the north—west will push further east during the day. it will be a windier day once again. we are expecting gusts fairly widely of around 40—50 miles an hour, and that will make it feel colder than these temperatures might suggest. and some of these showers might merge to give longer spells of 00:11:59,185 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 wet weather at times.
