5:45 am
good morning. and also former advisor to the then mayor borisjohnson welcome to breakfast with me, and also former advisor to the then charlie stayt, in westminster. mayor boris johnson and on the day the uk was supposed and also former advisor to the then mayor borisjohnson and possible to leave the european union, future prime minister, if the i will parliament finally newspapers to be believed. let us about brexit festival. this i agree on a brexit plan? mps will vote again today on part newspaper has this very helpful of theresa may's deal. diagram of what they are expecting to happened today —— first of all. i if it doesn't pass, they have just two weeks to come up with another plan. wa nt to i'm naga munchetty. to happened today —— first of all. i want to ask you about the significance of holding this final also today: more than 20,000 people attend a national remembrance service vote, we think it is a final vote, in christchurch for the 50 people on the day we should have been shot dead in two mosques leaving the eu. this was meant to be a fortnight ago. the end. this was meant to be the day signposted by the prime minister, post the referendum in 2016, that britain would leave. and, u nfortu nately, 2016, that britain would leave. and, unfortunately, that is not going to happen. i don't mean unfortunately as in we should leave or should leave, but there has been a commitment to the british public that this would happen on that date. it appears they could still happen in some way or another but it won't happen today. so this event that is
5:46 am
meant to be brexit is really now dawning on people that it's not going to be a guillotine, this is going to be a guillotine, this is going to be a guillotine, this is going to be a process. and, really, 40 going to be a process. and, really, a0 yea rs of going to be a process. and, really, a0 years of a relationship held up between britain and europe isn't going to be untangled with one agreement, one vote, and inability to just step away. regardless of what people were told because they we re what people were told because they were probably told that it would be a lot simpler than this. she has separated the withdrawal agreement from the political declaration. she has done this because she wants to be able to get this third vote past the speaker, john bercow, explained to me what happens if the survey doesn't get through, because a lot of political commentators are predicting it doesn't have enough votes. this is what this ever graphic in the sun, this is a really moving feast, i feel sorry for print media, every time they print something this situation changes. it appears that the prime minister will go back for another vote. but this is meaningful vote to .5 rather than
5:47 am
three, because it has been removed. she will leave the conversation to the next prime minister to have and define the future relationship. however, it appears that the democratic unionist party of northern ireland, the crucial ten votes that she needs to help effectively get this withdrawal agreement through are still not willing to support because of the issue of the backstop. that is the alignment of northern ireland with the customs union, the eu, and potentially some divergence between northern ireland and great britain. that is something they cannot put up with. that is something they cannot accept. and, therefore, it is hard for the prime minister to get this withdrawal agreement through. it already appears that whenever you announce you will have a vote on this withdrawal agreement the next one is already flagged as well. it appears cabinet ministers, design is reporting this, have already been talking about a potential fourth vote next week. no! if it looks like
5:48 am
the numbers are not there to get that through at about 2:30pm today. what will she do, split into four? this was the challenge. this was meant to be the end but it will be an ongoing process. i have to say, people do feel confused and worried and slightly, sometimes, embarrassed about what is happening. even the mps feel confused and worried. i spent some time in parliament this week and a lot of them are confused. let us be absolutely clear, the british people did vote for brexit, but it was a 52—a8 split. the country was generally split. the democratic institution that is the house of commons has been struggling with the finding what that decision looks like. this is the democracy in britain, the cradle of democracy, dealing with a very complex issue, dealing with a very complex issue, dealing with a very complex issue, dealing with it through debate, dealing with it through debate, dealing with it through debate, dealing with it through process, dealing with it through process, dealing with it through process, dealing with it through law, dealing with a... the way you say makes it sound so good, kulveer, debate,
5:49 am
process , sound so good, kulveer, debate, process, law, but it feels so much more confused. natalie lowe 's confusion. we all want certainty. but unfortunately if there is one thing in this what we don't get enough of it is certainty. as a business person i look for business certainty around brexit. i think we are entering an era, an era brexit uncertainty, and businesses are now factoring this into our thinking. we know that this process is going to continue, regardless of what happens today, for another couple of years. and our politicians will continue to find the way through, which is what they are tasked to do. some predicting, kulveer, that this man, borisjohnson, could predicting, kulveer, that this man, boris johnson, could be predicting, kulveer, that this man, borisjohnson, could be the person to ta ke borisjohnson, could be the person to take britain forward if the prime minister does end up resigning. the i newspaper saying thatjohnson is primed and ready for number 10. you we re primed and ready for number 10. you were his advice when he was mayor of london, what you make of this? as he a lwa ys london, what you make of this? as he always wanted to be premised? —— his advisor. i have not met a politician 01’ advisor. i have not met a politician ormp who advisor. i have not met a politician
5:50 am
or mp who does not think they could be premise at some point in their career. that is not something i think we should be focusing on. obviously with theresa may announcing she would step down once the dealers agreed. that could still happen. it could be some time yet —— deal is agreed. there will be some jockeying for position in terms of who could potentially be the next conservative party leader and then prime minister. boris johnson conservative party leader and then prime minister. borisjohnson could do thejob. i have no doubt about it. but so could many others. what was he like to advise when he was working as mayor of london? he is a fantastic politician. get things done. that is what you want and politicians. you want people who will get things done, who won't get bogged down by technocrats, who will look clearly through to deliver for people... he is not particularly consistent for a politician. they have the challenge of being consistent... is it a challenge? it is because they are trying to
5:51 am
appease them please everybody. that is not possible. there are many politicians within the conservative party who could be a good prime minister. who are the others, then? it is like the grand national. there would be many runners and riders in this particular race. the good thing to note is that there are so many. it is not actually going to be a small pool of potential leaders, there are a very large number of people who could do the job and do thejob people who could do the job and do the job well. yet some critics would say it would be once again a prime minister of this country elected without a general mandate from the population. welcome i think the mandate will follow, because what we are looking at here is a position, it isa are looking at here is a position, it is a unique proposition brexit. this has not happened in this country before. that is why there will be a move over... we did have gordon brown take over from tony blair without an electoral mandate at that point. there is precedent for these things to happen. but it has happened already, hazard it, with the conservative party? yes, it has. i really want to talk about
5:52 am
this story, time is running out. how worrying is this, facebook, car bomb first thomas ups, facebook is upping the level of security for its 80,000 workers around the world? this is the next age of revolution for those young tech companies that came gleaming into the world with open plan offices, promises of a different way of working, i think some of us have seen the film in turn, the campuses, the way it is all very free ——in turn. turn, the campuses, the way it is all very free --in turn. it made google look like a great place to work. they have redefined working life, the way we work. however, the dawning realisation of corporate security, threats, what all businesses have known for quite a long time, that you need to secure environments. i think companies like facebook and others are feeling that, especially as they are being challenged and currently we are all
5:53 am
acutely aware of the challenges facebook have been facing about legislation and the data. it brings a sharpness of reality coupled with security for their employees. it is something about the maturing of the tech industry, the new tech industry, that is what we are seeing with facebook. i am going to skip right onto the other story about clock changes now. because i wanted to cover this. it is a subject close to cover this. it is a subject close to my heart. i love british summertime. i personally wish we could always be honoured. i know people disagree, there various arguments based on various points up and down the country, but this, any logical news, the eu calling time on clock changes. 2021, european countries will have to decide whether they want to keep wintertime 01’ whether they want to keep wintertime or summertime, that is how it will work? there's great. since the 30th of april 1960 we have had this change, across europe. now the eu has decided, a10— a92, have voted to
5:54 am
abolish the change. in typical eu fashion there is no consistency. countries will be able to decide which time they are going to take. so you could be two hours ahead of spain. you could. going back to brexit and where we are and what is the confusion the eu causes, we have a situation that by making a decision we could end up with more confusion as to which time zone you are in. therein lies the problem. the people who challenge this are portugal, britain, and greece. people are saying we may need to look at this again. ok, kulveer, thank you very much indeed. stay with us on the bbc news. plenty more to come from me and the team on the briefing. bye—bye. hello. plenty of dry weather
5:55 am
on the way through friday, lasting into the weekend as well. but there is another weather change taking place. now, this weather front will give a bit of rain to northern scotland on through friday. not very much as it moves south over the weekend. but that other weather change on the way, behind that weather front, there will be cooler air arriving. this is how we start friday. and it's cold enough for a touch of frost in parts of england and wales. some fog patches too, more especially towards wales and western england, gradually clearing during the morning. and then sunny spells on a fine day. more cloud for northern ireland, across much of scotland as well. and it's breezy with the rain still there for the northern and western isles, parts of the north north—west of the mainland of scotland on through the day. so with the cloud here, temperatures have come down a bit compared to what we had on thursday. for england and wales it'll feel warm in the sunny spells, maybe 18 degrees in south—east england. let's take a look at things through friday night and into saturday morning. remember that weather front is still here, edging very slowly further south through scotland, a little snow to the higher hills. to the south of that it remains dry. and again, especially for parts
5:56 am
of england and wales, a few fog patches developing, it will be cold enough for a touch of frost in a few spots as saturday begins. that takes us onto the weekend. there is a weak weather front moving south. barely any wet weather associated with it, so many places will be dry. but, again, the more significant aspect of that weather front is the change to cooler conditions. so here it comes. the cooler air will very slowly percolate southwards on through saturday and eventually we will all be in the cooler air into sunday. and for some of us it will be quite a drop in temperatures. but again, coming with plenty of dry weather. here is the weather front on saturday. it's an area of cloud and not much else. we could see a little bit of light rain pushing into parts of england and wales. see a few wintry showers running through parts of northern scotland, may see a bit of snow into shetland from that as the colder air moves in. but still south of our weather front some warmth, southern parts of wales across southern england into east anglia, some spots into the high teens. but notice barely double figures behind our weather front. now, as we look at the picture for sunday, here's the front edging again a little further southwards. but it's high pressure that's building back in behind it, that's why it is still essentially settled. but of course that will bring some
5:57 am
cloud, that weather front moving south, with the odd spot of light rain, nothing more than that. elsewhere, some clear weather to begin with. some cloud building, but most places are staying dry. and there could well see some rain, rather than snow, then pushing back in towards shetland as the day goes on. and for all of us at this stage those temperatures have come down. that's your forecast.
