good morning. they say, of the rise welcome to breakfast with dan walker and louise minchin. of drug—resista nt infections. 0ur headlines today: the prime minister heads to brussels in her quest and finally, the uk sun newspaper. for a short delay to brexit. and a report that the lottery jackpot curse ha struck again but an emergency summit of eu leaders will consider with a couple married an extension of up to 12 months. for 38 years who scooped a lottery win of £161 million pounds, only to find that the money made a warning that thousands of people could be missing out them drift apart. on council tax discounts — because the application process is too confusing. with me is eileen burbidge, we've a special report on the debilitating condition thought to affect 1 in 20 partner at passion capital. let's talk the lottery win in a women around the world. moment and whether it is coastal not but first, brexit. interesting that we get the french viewpoint today because that french newspaper says, my gp would say it's like pmt on steroids. literally, it asks why? a new report to do what? very french. what is the point? what will we see that is different? i think that is a fair question and as italian —— european leaders are converging for a summit,
they are playing good cops and bad cops but clearly this characterisation is one of the point of doing a deadline and it underscores the concern that may be theresa may will not be more successful in getting her withdrawal riemann backed by her parliament than she has been in the last few yea rs. than she has been in the last few years. —— withdrawal agreement. than she has been in the last few years. -- withdrawal agreement. and the french president, he has been the french president, he has been the most vocal in the pressure he is putting in the uk and the doubt he has raised about whether or not it isa has raised about whether or not it is a good idea to extend the brexit deadline. i think his point has been that if we extend it for a short period of time, whether it is to the 30th of june period of time, whether it is to the 30th ofjune or any other period of time, what is the likelihood that anything will change or there will be any difference in the uk parliament? he suggests that we either make it a proper delay where there will be time for some material change in movement or let the uk leave. obviously, the big summit today for eu leaders, there has to
be, crucially, consensus among all of them for there to be any change. and there is also concern that potentially theresa may went to them thinking they could be the ones to force a longer delay or postpone it and she would never have gotten away with here. she is proposing june 30 because if she propose something longer she would have despair within her own party so maybe this is a way for the eu to say listen, we don't buy that and we demand a longer delay or postponement and therefore she comes out with a scenario she can work in. the headline in the telegraph has interesting photos and language choices. here is the photo of emmanuel macron and prime minister theresa may going in for the kiss. almost that headline, it almost evokes images ofjudas and the biblical story of the kiss in front of the roman guard. quite
different to other newspapers such as the guardian that shows them having a friendly hug. what do you think the telegraph is trying to say? all the newspapers have different bias is and they frame the same articles in different ways which is why we go through all of them. in this case the telegraph are certainly suggesting that there has been something of a betrayal by theresa may towards her party or to hard—core brexit sceptics within her party and she is going, knowing that the eu might only offer a long delay which is something that they would not have supported if she proposed herself stop and the article, if you read it says that growing number of stories believe that along exit extension makes the tenure of mrs may unsustainable. we have been contemplating this for the last year oi’ contemplating this for the last year orso, contemplating this for the last year or so, whether or not she has enough confidence within her own party members to carry on. she has committed if the agreement was backed, that she would step down to
the next phase of negotiations but she has a target on her back and she will be the scapegoat no matter what happens. moving on now to the financial times. the headline reads saudibond financial times. the headline reads saudi bond an answer as investors draw a line under the khashoggi killing. an international bond sale that managed to raise an awful lot of money, $12 billion. i'm not even sure that it will be close at 12 billion, it may be more than that. when it began the conversation with investors send that they were targeting $10 billion and they have increased that now to 12 billion because they had more than 30 billion in demand even before they began the meetings. it is definitely surplus demand and they can raise as much as they want stop they didn't even need to raise anything from foreign investors because they did not need it for the company. they wa nt to not need it for the company. they want to open up to foreign investment. if a company does issue
an international bond sale, what does that mean about that how the company is viewed ? does that mean about that how the company is viewed? it is seen as a rare and unique opportunity for these investors to get involved with an asset that they believe is going to contribute great value and return on their investment. this being the state backed oil, it has always been internalised within saudi arabia. this is the first time that international investors get access to it at all. it is an interesting contrast to how world leaders and business leaders alike were reacting after the murder of khashoggi, and how they were boycotting events and not wanting to make public state m e nts not wanting to make public statements of any kind of support or unity for the saudi government. and that has all been forgotten now? you can see where the money is and money talks. that is the interesting thing. unfortunately there is evidence that they are not supporting it with their dollars. the article points out that the
chief ofjp morgan chase is leading the bond sale a guy not go to the collection —— to the meeting in the desert. how have things changed?” don't think anything has changed but political leaders were mindful of political leaders were mindful of political perception had they made endorsements so political perception had they made endorsements $0 50011 political perception had they made endorsements so soon after the murder. now i think they hope that eve ryo ne murder. now i think they hope that everyone has moved past the, nobody notices and business as usual will continue. unfortunately we have noticed. we have, the ft... now. the new york times. a horrible disgusting virus, a fungus that always invokes images of mushrooms growing all over your body, a fungus that is now resista nt to your body, a fungus that is now resistant to antibiotics. this is a problem because we have talked about bacteria, superbugs in the past that
have been resistant to antibiotics. this fungus is now resistant to antifungal treatment. it is probably coming from a lot of the same route causes which is an overuse of pesticides. the strain that is coming out seems to be resistant to antifungal sprays used amongst crops around the world. what is interesting about this piece is that it goes into a lot of detail about how this is actually been some years in the making and even had an outbreak here in london at royal brompton hospital 1.5 years ago. the question now is how much news do you release to the public so that you do not cause a panic but you give people the information they require. it isa people the information they require. it is a fine line. it talks about this man admitted to hospital in new york with a fungal infection and u nfortu nately york with a fungal infection and unfortunately the man did pass away but it is fascinating. so invasive was the infection that the hospital needed a specialised cleaning equipment and rip out the ceilings
and floor tile just to get rid of the infection. it has been devastating. very hard to extricate from hospitals and areas and places. it may continue to be a growing problem and i think we need to think about how we try and curb the rise of drug resistant strains. moving the son. always good for lottery stories but this time it is a sad one. a couple who won £161 million ina one. a couple who won £161 million in a jackpot eight years ago. they have now announced that they are separating after 38 years of marriage. is the lottery per se real thing? i cannotjudge what happens with couples who were together for such a long time because it seems that they had stability but you never know what is going on. the only thing i can say is that hopefully they both have financial flexibility. hopefully that is a good thing. i don't know if it is a cui’soi’ good thing. i don't know if it is a cursor enabled them to make choices
that they thought they could make. fundamentally, surely it is about getting too much too quickly. and just not knowing what to do with it, affecting your mental balance. people could probably take financial advice in terms of how they do their estate planning and how they spend it does look like this couple purchased a number of homes. but divorce rates are climbing across the world, people are getting divorced for all sorts of reasons so i think the underlying reason for relationships is too much to analyse it or correlated to one particular event. i would really like to test out the lottery curse on myself. i would like to win it, curse or no curse. so good to see you and thank you forjoining us. here on bbc news are so you forjoining us. here on bbc news are so much more you forjoining us. here on bbc news are so much more to come. you forjoining us. here on bbc news are so much more to come. for me and the team here on the briefing, goodbye.
hello there, good morning. temperatures are on a downward trend over the next few days and nights. we still managed 16 degrees in western scotland, but colder air is coming down from scandinavia, over the north sea, so it will feel chilly for the next few days. but at least we're all going to get some sunshine, a bit like we did here in dumfries and galloway on tuesday. tuesday was still cold and grey and wet at times across southern england, and it will be southern england that sees the biggest change in the weather really, i think, for wednesday because the cloud that was sitting there, bringing some rain at times, is finally moving its way out into the english channel. still a bit of cloud, along parts of the south coast, devon, cornwall and dorset, otherwise dry. clear skies further north, the winds lighter, it will mean we're more likely to have a frost. temperatures down to —2, —3. it will warm up to a certain extent on wednesday in the sunshine, the cloud moves away from the south—west, we'll keep one or two showers for a while in the channel islands, otherwise a dry day.
a bit of fairweather cloud building up in north—east england, over the pennines. and a noticeable wind down the eastern side of england, especially in the south—east, willjust add to the chill, but at least the sunshine will be out, still only nine degrees along those north sea coasts. further west, highs of 12 or 13 celsius. those temperatures will fall away in the evening and overnight, in most parts of the country, we'll have clear skies, except for northern scotland, where there is more cloud coming in, so it won't be as cold. a frost possible for the west country by thursday morning. as we head towards the end of the week, high pressure dominating the weather, building down from scandinavia across the uk, locking all the weather fronts for the time being. so a lot of dry weather for thursday, there's cloud in northern scotland and there might be a few spots of drizzle over the hills. we're likely to find increasing cloud over central and eastern parts of england, northern ireland, sunshine. the best of the sunshine for wales and western england. typical temperatures
still only 10 or 11 degrees. light winds on thursday, but that changes on friday. dry with some sunshine at times, more sunshine as we head into the weekend but the winds going to be strengthening. it might feel a bit cold out there, with pressure lowering out to the west, there's a chance of rain for northern ireland, and essentially, we've got high pressure still in charge and with the south—wester, it should get less cold next week.
