2:04 pm
you say, we understand that this was a conversation recorded injanuary of this year between mr willsman and an american israeli author. let's ta ke an american israeli author. let's take a look. we have contacted mr willsman today, and we have yet to hear from we have contacted mr willsman today, and we have yet to hearfrom him or get a comment from him, but he did p0p up get a comment from him, but he did pop up in the news last year after a
2:05 pm
this afternoon, a letter has been recording emerged where he said he had never seen anti—semitism in the sent byjewish organisations to party and suggested thatjewish jennie formby, general secretary of the labour party, saying that mr trump fanatics were behind the accusations. we did also hear today willsman should be expelled from the from the labour party, they say that party rather than just suspended the party takes all complaints of pending investigation. iwilljust anti—semitism extremely seriously, bring you a little of the letter it is committed to challenging and campaigning against it in all its that has been sent to labour, signed forms. after that comment it then by the board of deputies of british emerged that mr willsman had been suspended pending an investigation, but as i say, and abovejewish jews, the jewish groups and labourmps but as i say, and abovejewish groups and labour mp5 as well what the party to go further and expel mr by the board of deputies of british jews, thejewish council. they say willsman. of course earlier this week we learned tony blair‘s former spin doctor alistair campbell had that this needs to stop the inexorable slide into british racism been expelled from the labour party againstjews, and they accuse the after he admitted to voting liberal party of doing almost nothing to democrat in the european elections, and the latter i mentioned earlier address anti—semitic concerns. we does refer to this. they say that we are getting a sense already here on bbc news about the anger these have seen this week how efficient latest comments have provoked. the labour party‘s disciplinary processes ca n the labour party‘s disciplinary if he cares a jot for the feelings processes can be when there is a will to make themselves so, and of of the jewish community, if he cares a jot for the feelings of thejewish community, he can't course you were just speaking to engage in the same old warm words alistair campbell himself, and he earlier tweeted, is tactical voting
2:06 pm
about not tolerating anti—semitism, more serious than anti—semitism? so i think growing pressure on the not tolerating racism. we understand labour leadership to take more that peter willsman has been a extensive action against mr political ally of his over the willsman, but we will have to see decades, but we he needs to put what happens. jessica parker. morality and the feelings of the earlier i spoke to tuvia tenenbom, party and the jewish morality and the feelings of the party and thejewish community first, and expel him now and for the author with whom peter willsman was recorded making remarks. good. very pointedly, this letter goes on mr tenenbom joined us from new york to make a reference, albeit without naming him, to the expulsion of to give his version of events. alistair campbell, former spin doctor tony blair, over the whole business of him voting liberal democrat last week. there is a letter making the point that the party is capable of swift disciplinary action when it chooses to be swift, so why shouldn't it be in this instance? we should say that we have contacted peter willsman for he said off the record only for one thing, reaction, and he has not yet returned our calls. but i told him i a journalist. he knew that. thank you, chris. he knew that from the top. i told him we were the group of people, this is the photographer, and i actually one of the things we talked about, i asked him to get me to interview, to open the door to interviewjeremy corbyn. and as we sat, he wrote him a note
2:07 pm
and asked him to meet me. but he knew me as a german journalist, he didn‘t know me as a jew, he knew me can you just explain, one of the as a german journalist. things that some people will want to as for the breach of trust, know, so let's just clear it up there was no breach of trust first, given that as we heard, mr according to english law as far as i understood it by a lawyer, by a legal adviser. willsman said the conversation was i did seek legal advice, off the record, what made you decide is it a breach of trust? they said no, there to release this tape, and why did is no breach of trust. a short while ago i spoke to you release it now? the point is, the former labour lord chancellor, lord falconer, who earlier this year was given the task of conducting an investigation into anti—semitism. he told me the party will be judged when i interviewed him, i met him at on how they deal with this case. the peter willsman case you have a hotel in oxford and we chatted for quite some time, two or three hours. just been talking about is an appalling acid test for the labour and i actually didn't record it. one party, because what pete willsman is recorded as saying on that tape is of my people recorded it, i was in these allegations of anti—semitism great britain, ijust came a few are all being manipulated by the israeli embassy. it is saying they days ago, and i went on a are part of some israeli government seven—month tour of the country, all conspiracy, which is an appalling through the country and wales, for thing to say, and it‘s made worse by the purpose of writing a book, the the fact that pete willsman is a member of the national executive fifth book in a series, about committee, which is the ruling body different countries. i have written
2:08 pm
of the labour party. it‘s different a book about israel, about germany, from what has happened to alistair about the united states, and this campbell because there is a specific was the fifth book in the series, so rule that says you can be auto this is why i came here. my wife is expeued rule that says you can be auto expelled for supporting another the photographer, and we came with a party. although lots of other people haven‘t been. party. although lots of other people haven't been. exactly, and i don't team, a geographer and a sound man. think it actually applied to alistair, because they have said we met, when we talked in the beginning i didn't know who he was, just voting for another party is not and my sound man it turned out within the rule. pete willsman is obviously entitled to an opportunity to say what his side of the story recorded the conversation, and is, but we‘ve got the tape, it‘s not that's what it was, he recorded the going to take long. i think within conversation and i didn't know it was recorded. only after did i 14 going to take long. i think within 1a days, this whole process can be concluded. i think the labour party realise it was recorded. usually are absolutely right to suspend pete willsman immediately whilst that occurs. the investigation will be every interview that i make, i don't short. the hearing only needs to listen to the tape and listen to do candid camera, i don't do any of what peter willsman‘s got to say. that, everything is in the open, we and if this is not dealt with within have recorders and everything, and 14 and if this is not dealt with within 1a days, one would be very worried that was late in the evening, and we that the processes were not agile didn't have that, but my sound man enough to deal with what is a used his iphone to record it. he terrible problem for the labour
2:09 pm
party, that is why the pete willsman told me he recorded it, ifollowed through and i went to an english case, the case you have been reported, is so important. it is a lawyer, anna turney, and i asked test. him, he was dealing with the press, it is a barometer against which people can judge, i asked him can i use it. —— mike a is the labour party institutionally able to deal with anti—semitism? lawyer. and he said, yes, he called lord falconer. joining me now from brighton ita lawyer. and he said, yes, he called it a matter of interest, he is a is fiona sharpe, from the group labour against anti—semitism. politician and you can use it. thank you for talking to us. what is and i said, ok, ifi politician and you can use it. and i said, ok, if i can use it, i can use it, and that is going to be your view of this situation?” one of the chapters in the book about it, one of the chapters of the thank you for talking to us. what is your view of this situation? i think that while lord falconer obviously book will be about this guy. is correct that we will be looking about it, one of the chapters of the book will be about this guylj about it, one of the chapters of the book will be about this guy. i do at how this case is dealt with, we apologise, where just quite short of time. cani apologise, where just quite short of time. can i just apologise, where just quite short of time. can ijust press you then on have to understand that this comes why you decided to release it now, on the end of a week where we find what explains the timing? the reason that the labour party itself has for the timing was very simple. the been investigated by the hrc for american media was about to give it institutional anti—semitism. this is not something that is happening in a vacuum. so yes, of course, we are out, somebody got hold of it, and i looking to see that this case is said, ok, if it is coming in america dealt with swiftly, but there are
2:10 pm
it should come in britain first, and many other cases, unfortunately, some people in britain asked me, would you allow us, would you give i‘ve anti—semitism within the labour party that have not been dealt with it to us to make it public, and i efficiently and have not been dealt said yes. initially i didn't think with in a manner that has made the about making it public at this time, but because it was some american jewish community feel comfortable. media that wanted it, and got hold and we heard lord falconer saying of it, and i said, ok, we will let it come first in britain because this is about... 0h, we have lost there that if suspension is the appropriate move today, and if the you for a moment. can ijust ask, tape recording is authenticated, then expulsion should follow. if that procedure were followed, would then, what do you think should you be content that disciplinary happen now? because obviously that procedures were correct in the party has created a bit of a storm in the now on this issue? in this labour party, questions about how to handle the case of mr willsman. what particular case. however, again, do you think? it is not up to me to this is one case. there are many, decide what happens. i am just a journalist. i have seen a lot of many cases. i hear you on that, but things, in the book there is going ijust want many cases. i hear you on that, but i just want to get clarity on this, to bea things, in the book there is going to be a lot of things, and another because some people are obviously saying that peter willsman should be preview came out of one of my expeued saying that peter willsman should be expelled today, whereas you are not interviews in northern ireland where saying that, you are saying due people told me through the camera, process should be followed and he
2:11 pm
everything was open and they told should be expelled if it is authenticated? i am not an expert on me, you know, hitler did one mistake because he didn't kill all thejews, the disciplinary procedures of the labour party. if you are asking me, and people ask me, what should be done with these people? are you going to go to the police quiz man i think that his comments are blata ntly andi going to go to the police quiz man i think that his comments are and i said, no, this is not myjob. blatantly anti—semitic, and i would if the police because me i will talk have been happier if he had been to them, otherwise i am a expeued have been happier if he had been journalist, i'm not an activist. expelled immediately. however, if that is the basic thing, so what due process needs to be followed, should be done? personally, i like then we will accept that the labour the guy, i likejeremy corbyn, i party will do that, and will do that have met him for a short time. i efficiently and swiftly. and coming like the people. but i am saddened, back to your wider point about how very sad and, especially as a jew, wide this goes, and of course again that people in such a high position we heard from lord falconer talking of power are so anti—semitic. you about an institutional problem. do wa nt to of power are so anti—semitic. you want to cry when you hear it. but you think the equality and human what should be done? this is not up rights commission are the right to me. this is up to the labour people to be investigating this, or party, this is for the politicians would you like to see more agile investigation from may be within the in britain, this is for the voters party alongside? i think the labour in britain. this is not up to me. i'm not pressing charges against
2:12 pm
anybody or doing anything. i heard party has had plenty of opportunities to investigate itself some bad things and some good things. mr tenenbom, can ijust from inside. we have had obviously the chakra —— chakrabarti report interrupted, sorry. you said you met jeremy corbyn, and you had a conversation with him. did you raise anti—semitism with him quite what which turned out to be nothing more did you discuss the internal than a whitewash, and the human problems of the labour party in rights and equality commission feels relation to investigating that what was done internally within anti—semitism? the labour party was not sufficient. relation to investigating anti-semitism? we had a very short time, we met in public twice, we talked for a few minutes. we were so it would seem that the body which was in fact set up by the labour supposed to meet later for an party is now investigating the party interview, it didn't happen. and that put it together in the very thatis interview, it didn't happen. and that is what it is. but i got to first place. fiona sharp, thank you know him a little bit. and we chatted about germany, we chatted very much forjoining us. about that, but we didn't sit down for a full interview. had we sat international news now. mexico has criticised the united states‘ threat to bring down for a full interview, i would in new tariffs on its imports. have asked all these questions, but president trump said he would rachet we didn't. again, these two people up tariffs unless mexico stopped people from illegally crossing the border it shares with the united states. stock markets in many countries have are nice, i spend enormous amounts registered significant falls since mr trump‘s announcement. from washington, of time, and again... . i'm sorry,

patients are having to wait several weeks for appointment, point was for proper manner in protecting their sources in a war —— lawful way. he what kind of thing is? because obviously it would be dangerous to wait in some cases. sometimes i do find that patients have waited has now ordered that the longer than they should have for a journalistic materials that were condition that has then got worse seized from the reporter should be and required more intervention, more returned, and those include very treatment, possibly to be seen in many detailed files and documents hospital, so it is more costly. it containing thousands of pages, we is not a plan that is evidence—based are told, of information, mobile that nhs england are implementing at phones and an exact timeframe for the moment, and it is resulting in when those should be handed over hasn‘t yet been established, but the increased expenditure, increased judge has said that they will have time off work, increased stress, and to be handed back to the it is time off work, increased stress, and itisi time off work, increased stress, and journalists. and outside the court, it is i would say ultimately unsafe. both trevor birney and barry and talking about the increased time off work and the stress, one of the mccaffrey and their supporter said aspects we have been hearing about it had been a victory for press freedom and they were very glad that todayis aspects we have been hearing about today is the pension issue, the tax this stage of the legal process was issue, the fact that there is almost a disincentive for gps to do over over. now they and their supporters and politicians who have supported time. do you see that as a factor? them and also their lawyers have u nfortu nately time. do you see that as a factor? unfortunately it is the case. i used to work full time when i first said that the whole criminal qualified and started working 2013, investigation, the police investigation, the police 110w qualified and started working 2013, investigation into them should now be dropped. now i only work two or three days, it is just thank you very much, chris, that was now i only work two or three days, it isjust far now i only work two or three days, it is just far too stressful.
2:22 pm
u nfortu nately i it is just far too stressful. unfortunately i think when the nhs very, very thorough. i was going to was founded, it was founded on ask you lots of questions, but you a nswered ask you lots of questions, but you answered all of them as you went values of community and cooperation, and we moved away from that to a along, so you get full marks! thank more market ties health care model you very much. under the influence of market iced doctors treating a boy american health care, which is bad who was injured in a fall news for patients and practitioners from a roller—coaster yesterday have said his condition is now like myself. so what do you see is critical. the way out? i think we need to look back and seek inspiration from those the seven—year—old fell at least 15 founding principles which i mentioned on which the nhs was feet from the twister ride at the lightwater built. we have kind of move towards valley theme park. he was taken to leeds general infirmary with head injuries. a market model, a top—down an investigation is continuing. our correspondent corinne wheatley hierarchy, heavily bureaucratic, extremely costly. i think if we sent us this update from the scene. could move back to a model where we had state provision of public health care, that would be the way forwards. u nfortu nately we care, that would be the way forwards. unfortunately we are seeing quite the opposite, we have had a couple of updates from north yorkshire police on the increasing private providers condition of this boy who is in fact involved with care, and their priorities are shareholder profits seven years old and not six as we not the care of doctors. dr kamlana, previously thought. we don't have to time to look at north yorkshire police say he is still being treated that in more detail, but thank you in hospital, and his condition is now described as very much for coming in and sharing critical but stable. with us. they have also told us that when he was airlifted to leeds general infirmary yesterday
2:23 pm
he was found to have injuries that the uk's biggest business wouldn‘t have been apparent organisation, the cbi, at the time of the incident. has written an open letter to all the conservative party we know the emergency services leadership candidates — were called here at about half past calling on them to promise 11 yesterday morning, that the uk will only leave and lots of people were around at the time. the european union with a deal. witnesses told us they heard screams in the letter, its director—general carolyn fairbairn warns that and people shouting to the operator a no—deal brexit would cause british to stop the ride when it became clear that the boy had fallen from companies "severe damage". one of the carriages on the twister onto the gravel below. the cost of no deal is so great, so the park is still open today. we‘ve seen lots of families arriving at the ticket gates, severe, across companies of all but the ride itself of course is still closed. sizes, that this is something that it‘s not the first time that has been an incident should be absolutely a last resort, involving this ride. back injune 2001, a 20—year—old student, gemma savage, died when two cars collided, a plan z, not to plan b. and after her death, however pro—brexit economist the owners of the theme park, gerard lyons said the risks should the manufacturers of the ride and an electrician were all fined not be blown out of proportion. for health and safety breaches. today the bbc has spoken to gemma‘s mum, linda savage. she told us, "our thoughts go out no deal is a plan b, to this little boy and his family. a stepping stone it is unbelievable that this has happened to a future free trade agreement on the same ride 18 years on. with a whole host of different deals in the near term. it is not an end state in itself she says, "it‘s incredibly
2:24 pm
but we should have been doing a lot distressing for us in the run—up more preparation for a no deal. to the anniversary of gemma‘s for the first time in over a decade, death," and she also says there are two english teams that they didn‘t know the ride in the men's champions league final. here was still in operation. meanwhile, an investigation tottenham and liverpool play each by the health and safety tomorrow in madrid — executive continues. lightwater valley say after both sides won theirsemifinals, coming from behind in dramatic style. fans have flocked over they are assisting with that. to the spanish capital — not all of them with tickets scientists have found a way for the match. to rapidly kill huge numbers of the mosquitoes our europe correspondent which spread malaria. researchers in burkina faso anna holligan is in madrid. and the united states have enhanced she has been mingling with some of a fungus using a toxin found the fans. anna? the atmosphere here in a species of spider, so that the fungus kills the mosquitos that carry the disease. in the central square is as warm as in trials, it‘s reduced mosquito the weather. 70,000 fans gathering populations by more than 99%. here now in anticipation. sean is one of the co—authors of the study one of them, and do you have a raymond st legerjoins us from university of maryland. ticket? i don't, no, wejust came for the atmosphere. and you have travelled over from ireland to support... ? tottenham. and this thank you very much forjoining us. thank you very much forjoining us. thank you very much forjoining us. thank you for having me. you must be very satisfied with these results. would be their first ever champions we are very satisfied. you gave a league trophy, liverpool are going very good little summary there. we for their sex, trying to put last tested in the lab, and it works very yea r‘s for their sex, trying to put last year's runner—up for their sex, trying to put last yea r‘s runner—up status for their sex, trying to put last year's runner—up status behind them. so what you think was make any

that makes it even more special. that the fungus with the toxin both of them of course coming from crashed the mosquito population. and those incredible semifinal comebacks, too. ask anyone here. crashing the mosquito population for anyone who risks malaria or has had malaria, that seemed like a good just behind us, they are competing idea, but is there a potential to wina just behind us, they are competing to win a ticket for the final. downside? we don't see a potential downside. not with the information 68,000 capacity, and half of the we have now. we are working with a specific mosquito pathogen, natural pathogen of mosquitoes that is found tickets have been allocated to supporters of both sides, it is a in west africa. we are using an on sold—out game and there are plenty off switch for the toxin which only of people here today, and theyjust ex presses off switch for the toxin which only expresses when the fungus gets into keep on coming, who are quite happy to be here and tojust keep on coming, who are quite happy to be here and to just be the insect blood. at the toxin keep on coming, who are quite happy to be here and tojust be part keep on coming, who are quite happy to be here and to just be part of this whole event. anna, thank you so itself is specific for insects. so we do not see negatives to using much. can't wait. you take care. it looks pretty amazing, the weather in this, but we are still very careful madrid. let's see what it is doing for the rest of us. i was going to how we roll out this product. it would only be rolled out with the the uk first? we are going to go to full support of the local community. the uk first? we are going to go to the us first because recently we've so let‘s talk about that, then. what been talking about the severe storms would roll out, what is the further and tornadoes, but what we haven't talked so much about is the amount testing needed and what would the
2:27 pm
of rain that has been falling. this roll—out look like? testing needed and what would the picture behind me is in misery, and roll-out look like? well, after going through all the regulatory it is the mississippi river. the hurdles and after talking with the mississippi, parts of the local citizenry, which we are always mississippi, parts of the mississippi have been above flood levels for a 103 consecutive days. doing, we would compare the they are having huge amounts of rain state—of—the—art right now, which is from these severe storms coming just using insecticide treated bed through. i want to show you some footage from arkansas. not too far nets, and we compare those results away from here, a place called crystal valley, you get around five with results from insecticide treated bed nets and the fungus, and inches of rain in 2a hours, and you we expect the fungus and the see the extent of the floodwater insecticide together to be much more here. and as we have just been effective at reducing mosquito seeing some reports coming from populations and therefore much more nasser that the united states have effective at reducing malaria, and we will test that an open field been having just so much rain, it is trials after a lot of community actually their wettest year on engagement. so you are saying that record. in the records go back 12a potentially in the future, once you yea rs. record. in the records go back 12a havejump years. so this is a huge amount of potentially in the future, once you have jump through these hoops, that we will live in a world where nearly rain falling. chicago is well ill in the noi, they had around eight 500,000 people don‘t need to die of inches of rain in may, that makes it malaria? we would be able to use our their wettest month since records began back in the 18705. so huge fungus concurrently with amounts of rain falling acro55 insecticides, hopefully with new vaccines and so on as a group of new began back in the 18705. so huge amounts of rain falling across the united states. we have been talking

2:59 pm
that they've sent to the party, and tojeremy corbyn, that they've sent to the party, and to jeremy corbyn, resigning, that they've sent to the party, and tojeremy corbyn, resigning, because they voted lib dems, all voted green, although to change uk. whether it's those cases, or the case of anti—semitism, people have to know where the labour party stands. it has to be dealt with. and what you've seen is the anti—semitism cases dragging on and on and on, my case being dealt with very quickly and very summarily, and basically, i think, very quickly and very summarily, and basically, ithink, unfairly. and lots of other people, unless they are equally dealt with, are also a case for discrimination, which i will bring. before i let you go, one quick question about the release of this tape, sorry, i'm being told i've got to finish this interview. i've got to finish this interview. i've run out of time. thank you for joining us.

3:02 pm
and we speak to the us diplomat who planned the last presidential state visit. hello, everyone. you're watching programme macro. jewish community organisations have written to labour's general secretary calling for the immediate expulsion of peter willsman from the party after comments he made about anti—semitism. this morning the labour party suspended mr willsman, a member of its ruling national executive committee, after hearing a recording made in january executive committee, after hearing a recording made injanuary and obtained by lbc, in which he says that claims of anti—semitism made againstjeremy corbyn had come from the israeli embassy.
3:03 pm
let's talk to our political corresopndentjessica parker. this has been a long—running saga for the labour party, accusations that it doesn't deal swiftly with allegations of anti—semitism within the party, and as mentioned there, three jewish organisations the party, and as mentioned there, threejewish organisations have today written to jennie threejewish organisations have today written tojennie formby, the secretary of the labour party, using strong language. they say they met with jeremy corbyn strong language. they say they met withjeremy corbyn and his team last yearin withjeremy corbyn and his team last year ina withjeremy corbyn and his team last year in a sincere attempt to stop the labour pa rty‘s year in a sincere attempt to stop the labour party's seeming inexorable slide into institutional racism against dues. they say that the leadership is done almost nothing to address the specific requests they made at that time. they think that peter willsman should be dismissed from the national executive committee, and of course the national executive, the pa rty‘s course the national executive, the party's ruling body, and indeed expeued party's ruling body, and indeed expelled from the party. this is after this recording emerged of mr
3:04 pm
willsman, and as you say it is from january when he met with an american israeli author. let's have a listen to what he said.
3:05 pm
we have contacted mr willsman today, but he did pop up in the news last year after a recording emerged when he said he had never seen anti—semitism in the party and suggested thatjewish truck fanatics we re suggested thatjewish truck fanatics were behind the accusations. we did also hit earlier today from the labour party, they say the labour party ta kes labour party, they say the labour party takes all complaint of anti—semitism extremely seriously, it is committed to challenging and campaigning against it in all its forms. after that comment it then emerged that mr willsman had been suspended pending an investigation, but as i say, a number ofjewish groups and labourmps but as i say, a number ofjewish groups and labour mp5 as well want the party to go further and expel mr willsman. let's have a listen to mike catt from the jewish willsman. let's have a listen to mike catt from thejewish labour movement. if he cares a jot for the feelings of the jewish community, he can't engage in the same old worn words about not tolerating anti—semitism, not tolerating racism. we understand that pete willsman has been a political ally
3:06 pm
of his over the decades, but we he needs to put morality and the feelings of the party and the jewish community first, and expel him now and for good. of course, earlier this week we learned that tony blair's former spin doctor alistair campbell had been expelled from the labour party after he admitted to voting liberal democrat in the european elections. and the letter i mentioned earlier does refer to this. they say that we have seen this week how efficient the labour pa rty‘s have seen this week how efficient the labour party's disciplinary processes ca n the labour party's disciplinary processes can be when there is a will to make themselves so, and of course you were just speaking to alistair campbell himself, and he earlier tweeted, is tactical voting more serious than anti—semitism? so i think growing pressure on the labour leadership to take more extensive action against mr willsman, but we will have to see what happens. jessica, thank you. in the last hour i spoke to tuvia tenenbom, the author whom peter willsman was recorded making remarks to. those remarks are said to have been made during
3:07 pm
a three—hour conversation. mr tenenbom joined us from new york to give his version of events. he said off the record only for one thing, but i told him i a journalist. he knew that. he knew that from the top. i told him we we re that from the top. i told him we were the group of people, this is the photographer, and i actually one of the things we talked about, i asked him to get me to interview, to open the door to interviewjeremy corbyn. and as we sat, he wrote him a note and asked him to meet me. but he knew me as a german journalist, he knew me as a german journalist, he didn't know me as a jew, he knew me as he didn't know me as a jew, he knew measa he didn't know me as a jew, he knew me as a german journalist. as for the breach of trust, there was no breach of trust according to english law as far as i understood it by a lawyer, by a legal adviser. i did seek legal advice, is it a breach of trust? they said no, there is no breach of trust.
3:08 pm
tuvia tenenbom. lord falconer is a former labour chancellor, and earlier this year the party given the chance of conducting an investigation into anti—semitism. lord falconer, it is not going terribly well, is it? tell us where you are with your investigation. we put it on hold pending discovering what the equalities commission was going to do, and they have decided to do going to do, and they have decided todoa going to do, and they have decided to do a full— blown going to do, and they have decided to do a full—blown investigation into the labour party and anti—semitism, and obviously there is no point in overlapping the two things particularly when the equality commission has got the power to compel witnesses by law, get all documents, text, etc, and then can make notjust recommendations but orders about what happens next, so it is for the equalities commission now to do that full— blown investigation, and equalities commission now to do that full—blown investigation, and i think it is a good thing that there is going to be a searchlight placed upon what has happened in the past and what should happen in the future. i was going to ask about whether their investigation was historical, because obviously the danger is that the hrc takes its time to do these things thoroughly
3:09 pm
as it needs to, but then you can be overta ken as it needs to, but then you can be ove rta ke n by as it needs to, but then you can be overtaken by events, as is going to happen here. it has to be to some extent historical, in that you have to look and see what has happened in the past to understand the present, but it is also obviously got to look as well as to what is going on now, and the peter willsman issue is plainly what is going on currently. one of the things that the commission is specifically going to look at is whether or not the labour party has introduced procedures that deal adequately with anti—semitism, and the peter willsman case that you have just been talking about is an appalling acid test for the labour party, because what peter willsman is recorded as saying on that tape is recorded as saying on that tape is these allegations of anti—semitism are all being manipulated by the israeli embassy. it is saying they are part of some israeli government conspiracy which is an appalling thing to say, and it
3:10 pm
is an appalling thing to say, and it is made worse by the fact that peter willsman is a member of the national executive committee, the ruling body of the labour party. what confidence would an individual member of the jewish community have that the labour party was dealing adequately with anti—semitism if one of its ruling body is dismissing complaints of anti—semitism as being the product of a conspiracy being orchestrated by the israeli embassy? it is absolutely appalling. now, it is different from what has happened alistair campbell because there is a specific rule that says you can be auto expelled for supporting another party. although lots of other people haven't been. exactly, and i don't think it applied to alistair, because as they said, just voting for another party is not within the rule. peter willsman is obviously entitled to an opportunity to say what his side of the story is, but we've got the tape, it's not going to take long. i think within ia days
3:11 pm
this whole process can be concluded. i think the labour party were right to suspend him immediately whilst it occurs. the investigation will be short, and the hearing only needs to listen to the tape and listen to what peter willsman has got to say. and if this is not dealt with within 14 and if this is not dealt with within ia days, one would be very worried that the processes were not agile enough to deal with what is a terrible problem for the labour party. so if i hear you correctly, you are saying that in this case, procedure is being followed properly right now in terms of suspension, a hearing and then action if necessary? you are hearing me precisely correctly in that respect, but it needs to be dealt with quickly, because he is on the ruling body, because it is so clear, because there is not a requirement of much investigation, he has got to be givena of much investigation, he has got to be given a fair opportunity, but it needs to be dealt with quickly, and i'm saying within ia days. needs to be dealt with quickly, and i'm saying within 14 days. and i suppose the difficulty is for those
3:12 pm
other members of the labour party who have a different experience, like alistair campbell from whom we have heard a moment ago, that they say that there are double standard here potentially because here we are, summarily expelled, and others get a hearing at all the rest of it. do you understand that position?|j do, do you understand that position?” do, i understand what the labour party is able to do if, for example, you signed the nomination papers of a person from another party, they can automatically expel you, and thatis can automatically expel you, and that is a rule that says that. due process when you are charged with anti—semitism requires that you have anti—semitism requires that you have an opportunity to say anything you wa nt an opportunity to say anything you want to say, for example, it wasn't me. for example, there is something wrong with that tape. but it doesn't need to take a long period of time. it needs to be dealt with very, very quickly. that is why the processes are different. but the processes are different does not justify a are different. but the processes are different does notjustify a period beyond ia days for resolving this.
3:13 pm
and do you not feel sorry that you are not in there at the heart of this sorting out in the fashion you describe as being necessary in order to protect your party from further damage. i do feelvery to protect your party from further damage. i do feel very sorry about that. i wish i was. but the equalities commission has got much greater powers than an individual memberof the labour greater powers than an individual member of the labour party would have. i raised the question of what should be done in the period it is going to take the equalities commission to report, because it will take six months to a year for them to report, and that is why the peter willsman case, the case you have been reporting on, is so important. it is a test. it is a as it were a barometer against which people canjudge, it were a barometer against which people can judge, is it were a barometer against which people canjudge, is the labour party institutionally able to deal with anti—semitism? party institutionally able to deal with anti-semitism? lord falconer, thank you forjoining us. thank you. let's go to international news. mexico has criticised the united states' threat to bring in new tariffs on its imports. president trump said he would rachet
3:14 pm
up tariffs unless mexico stopped people from illegally crossing the border it shares with the united states. from washington, chris buckler reports. donald trump has long claimed that mexico could do more to stop migrants from illegally crossing over into the united states. he has done nothing to hide his frustration, even tweeting pictures of large groups being apprehended by border patrol agents as they try to sneak into america. but it's notjust people who cross this border every day. it's a huge amount of trade and the president believes that offers an opportunity to put pressure on the mexican government. in a post on twitter he said onjune the 10th the us will impose a 5% tariff on all goods coming into the country from mexico. he warned the tariff would gradually increase to up to 25% by the 1st of october. mexico has called the proposal disastrous and warned that it will respond vigorously.
3:15 pm
translation: of course if this threat is carried out it would be grave, very serious, extremely serious. but i'm sure this is something that is not destined to happen. if this is put in place, in my opinion we must respond very strongly. tariffs have become a favourite weapon of president trump. he has used them in his ongoing trade battle with china, to some concern on the stock market. and there are firms rattled about this latest dispute, including several of the world's largest car manufacturers who have factories in mexico and a huge market in america. they are not alone. some in the white house are said to be worried about the potential wider economic impact and what this could mean for the us mca trade deal between canada, america and mexico. as president trump was finalising his plans, the us vice president mike pence was north of america's other border to discuss the agreement with the canadian prime ministerjustin
3:16 pm
trudeau. the prime minister and i discussed the whole process of ratification here in canada and in the united states. and i assured him that the president and i are absolutely determined to work with rank and file in the congress and the leadership to move the us mca forward and to move it forward this summer. but it still has to be ratified by each of the countries and these tariffs could put that in doubt. certainly mexican officials are warning that they will retaliate and that is sure to test cross—border relationships once again. chris buckler, bbc news, washington. doctors treating a boy who was injured in a fall from a rollercoaster yesterday have said his condition is now critical. the seven—year—old fell at least 15 feet from the twister ride at the lightwater valley theme park. he was taken to leeds general

now, have you struggled to get an appointment with your doctor? gps surgery closures across the uk have reached an all time high, according to research carried out by the medical website pulse. it says nearly 1a0 surgeries shut last year — up from just 18 in 2013 — affecting an estimated half a million people. nhs england says this is often because of practices merging. say ah. excellent. every year, millions of people are treated by their local gp. but over the past year the nhs has lost more than a00 fully qualified gps in england and surgery closures across the uk are at an all—time high. according to new figures released by the medical magazine pulse, in 2013 just 18 surgeries shut across the uk. by last year that number had increased to 138. nhs england, which runs the health service, said it refuted the pulse figures.
3:21 pm
according to their data, which only covers the past financial year, it had seen a few closures and patient dispersal. let's put this on your hand. the investigation also revealed that gps felt that increasing workloads and recruitment difficulties meant practices were often forced to close as a last resort. how can we help today? speaking earlier this month to the bbc, dr carmel boyhan irvine, who works in plymouth, said something has to change. there is a crisis in general practice, it's very real. it's the worst crisis since 1948. it future is injeopardy, there is no doubt about that. as a result of the surgery closures, the research revealed that more than half a million people were affected. leigh milner, bbc news. the american singer r kelly has been charged with a further 11
3:22 pm
sexual assault and abuse offences. the charges relate to a child aged between 13 and 16 years old and some carry a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison. let's get more on this from nada tawfik, our north america reporter — she joins me from new york. tell us more about the charges involved, or tell us what you are allowed to tell us. well, this case centres around one woman who was pa rt centres around one woman who was part of the original four of which r kelly was charged with ten counts in february. these 11 new cancer centre around a woman who is known asjp in court documents, and she has actually come out and publicly identified herself. she wrote a message on facebook saying, yes, i am the one who is named in these charges, i know his fans are mad about this, please do not contact me telling me how wrong i am in coming
3:23 pm
forward ten years later, the law is on my side. what is remarkable about her case is that she first came in contact with r kelly when she skipped school at the age of 16 to go to his trial in 2008 when he was acquitted on child pornography charges. she said she was a super fan and went there every day. r kelly would stop and speak to her, noticing her at the court and allegedly began a relationship with her afterward that included emotional and sexual abuse for years before she got out of that relationship and eventually reached a settlement with the entertainer. now, r kelly of course has vehemently denied all the allegations against him. he went on american television, jumping on the couch, speaking to the camera in a very fevered appeal to americans, saying that the person he is being portrayed is not him, and he is innocent, and his attorney has said that these charges are nothing new, they are just
3:24 pm
that these charges are nothing new, they arejust additional that these charges are nothing new, they are just additional charges to they are just additional charges to the previous one from february. and you mentioned that the woman in question was telling the fans to leave her alone. how exercised other fa ns leave her alone. how exercised other fans at the moment on one side or the other? i have to say there have been allegations against r kelly for decades. he has been on trial and has been acquitted in the past, but this has always followed him, and although he seems to be untouchable ina although he seems to be untouchable in a way. he went on to record new music, and it was only after a documentary called surviving r kelly came out that people really started to be horrified by the allegations from several women, including his ex—wife, where they detail how he would control their lives, what they could do, and again, have an emotional and sexual abuse against these women, and most of them underage girls. and so that has really led to a change, a tidal wave
3:25 pm
of change in how fans and the public view are —— r kelly. of change in how fans and the public view are -- r kelly. we will leave it there, thank you forjoining us. the uk's biggest business organisation, the cbi, has written an open letter to all the conservative party leadership candidates, calling on them to promise that the uk will only leave the european union with a deal. in the letter, its director—general carolyn fairbairn warns that a no—deal brexit would cause british companies "severe damage". the cost of no deal is so great, so severe, across companies of all sizes, that this is something that should be absolutely a last resort, a planz should be absolutely a last resort, a plan z and not plan a or plan the. however pro—brexit economist gerard lyons said the risks should not be blown out of proportion no deal is a plan b. it is a
3:26 pm
stepping stone to a future free trade agreement. it has a whole host of different deals. no deal is not an end state in itself, but we should have been doing a lot more preparation for it. italy's mount etna has been lighting up the sky, with bursts of sweltering hot lava. it's europe's highest and most active volcano. seismic activity started to rise yesterday evening, peaking at around midnight. the 3,330—metre—high volcano can burst into spectacular action several times a year, spewing lava and ash high over the mediterranean island. the last major eruption was in 1992. well, more on the extraordinary activities in the natural world and how they affect ting us in ways we cannot predict, i don't know where this sentence is going, but you will finish it! i will pick it up and

3:29 pm
scotland, northern ireland, the high teens. this band of rain will sink its way southwards and tend to fizzle out, but we will keep quite a lot of cloud across northern eglin, the north midlands. clear skies elsewhere, may be some patchy mist and fog, showery rain for the western isles. most places will stay in double figures. we have some warmth this weekend. southerly winds particularly for england and wales pulling up some warm air from the near continent, so temperatures tomorrow afternoon could get close tomorrow afternoon could get close to 27 or 28 celsius. still some cloud across northern england, the north midlands, could bring some outbreaks of rain at a north—west england, north wales, maybe showery rain as well. the mid to high teens in scotland and northern ireland, similar values for the far north of england, and you can see where the warmth is, temperatures getting up to 27, 20 warmth is, temperatures getting up to 27,20 eight warmth is, temperatures getting up to 27, 20 eight celsius. change to come on sunday, low pressure pushing in from the atlantic is going to freshen the breeze, bring some
3:30 pm
outbreaks of rain across scotland, northern ireland, north—west england, wales and south—west england, wales and south—west england, staying dry and warm further south and east, could spark offa further south and east, could spark off a few thunderstorms across england through the afternoon, and going to be a breezy day, starting to feel cooler and fresher the further west you are, but that once hanging on across south—eastern and eastern parts of england, and temperatures in the mid 205, elsewhere starting to come down, and that will be the theme as we go into the week ahead, cooler, breezy, some rain further north and west, but still mainly dry further south and east.

president trump will arrive in london on monday for a three day state visit. he will have a banquet with the queen and held talks with theresa may at downing street. catherine carpenter has been looking at preparations for his arrival. in regenfs preparations for his arrival. in regent‘s park, a sense of deja vu. nearly a year since the president‘s last visit the protective barriers around the us ambassadors residence are back. one local celebrity described it as champ has award. for those of us who use the park, it‘s coming you know, exercise interrupt is for us. we are very annoyed. last year winfield house was the president‘s base with its house to garden as a helicopter pad. one of the diplomats who oversaw the chips as the pump of this visit comes with security challenges. having him on the streets of london makes it a much more complex
3:38 pm
security operation from the perspective of the british, the metropolitan police and the american securities services. we have lots of communications equipment, the presidential limousine, the helicopters, it is a massive operation. at the peak of a presidential visit, anywhere overseas, there are roughly 750 800 support staff on the ground supporting the visit. helps donald trump my michael find time to visit the new us embassy, he accepts derogatory comments about his location and social media spats with london‘s a mare might have contributed to the level of protest seen contributed to the level of protest seenin contributed to the level of protest seen in the capital during his last visit. this is a president who stirs strong passions. in his supporters and detractors. so it's not a surprise at all that they were protests in london. policing that involves nearly every force in the country. 10,000 police officers work extended shifts, and had rest cancelled, so they could
3:39 pm
perform over 26,000 shifts. the overall cost was just under £a0 million, although thames valley police, essex police and the met eventually got back nearly 8 million the government. there are warnings that next week‘s visit could be even more challenging. 10,000 officers will be required, mutual aid is coming from other forces because we don't have the resilience required. on the back of what my colleagues have done in the la st what my colleagues have done in the last few weeks, the rebellion protest extinctions and everything that's gone on. as well as increasing the overtime bill the demonstration against climate change has forced a rethink about how we source draining —— resource draining protest should be policed. they are prepared for all eventualities. lewis lukens was the united states‘ ambassador at the time of the last presidential state visit to the uk when barack obama came. we saw you in that piece but it‘s
3:40 pm
worth pointing out that you were here for the working visit last year and faced some difficulties. talk us through them. these visits are always a challenge. last time the biggest challenge was the desire to keep a person tramp out of london so to keep a person tramp out of london so he didn‘t come face—to—face with the protesters. the logistics of the schedule were complicated. this visit will be in london were make it even more complicated. last year one of the reasons to get him out of the capital was because of the avoidance of protests, as we know they will be significant. how do the team in the embassy deal with isolating him of protecting him from that? it's that? it‘s a trade—off. in this case, he can‘t avoid london, so it will be a huge operation. the us secret service working with the british police to make sure routes are cleared and the president can get from point a to point b without getting disrupted or having the road blocked by protesters.
3:41 pm
there is a security risk, we‘ve heard about that in katherine‘s apiece. but there is also an embarrassment risk. you faced embarrassment risk. you faced embarrassment last year when the president did that famous interview with the sun newspaper, when he talked about borisjohnson‘s are qualities as a potential prime minister. yes, this is the challenge with this president. he tends to go off script and nobody knows what he‘s going to say, what he‘s thinking. you can do everything possible to prepare for a visit, and the embassy is good at that. we have staff you‘ve been doing it for decades. the unknown is what is the president going to do or say that he is here that will lead to the embassy having to run around and repair relationships afterwards. how frustrating is that, as a diplomat, given that your dataj how frustrating is that, as a diplomat, given that your data j job is to keep that special relationship going in london, and keep a good relationship whatever capital you‘re in? -- relationship whatever capital you‘re in? —— given that your day todayjob
3:42 pm
is to keep that special relationship going. how difficult is it when the president doesn‘t observe protocol? obviously it‘s frustrating. we a try ha rd to obviously it‘s frustrating. we a try hard to maintain these relationships, and to have the president undermined that work through gratuitous comments or tweets that he makes, attacking people in the uk is frustrating. it's people in the uk is frustrating. it‘s unnecessary, and doesn‘t accomplish anything. it undermines the hard work that the embassy does all the time. one of the problems for you is you don‘t know where it‘s going to come from. last year it was the mayor of london. he has attacked the mayor of london, the prime minister, the nhs, you know, who knows who the next target will be? and another sensitivity, we are at an extremely sensitive time in the uk, politically and continued constitutionally with everything going on in the conservative party, the government, the opposition etc. that is a very large field, a very
3:43 pm
large cameo, goalpost for him to put his ball through. where do you think... will they be sizing all love that up, deciding where the problem is going to happen? the embassy does everything it can to anticipate where the problem might happen but there‘s nothing they can do to stop it, that‘s the issue. will they be saying don‘t have dinner with borisjohnson, will they be saying don‘t have dinner with boris johnson, don‘t have dinner with nigel farage, that‘s a protocol error? iimagine the that‘s a protocol error? i imagine the embassy is recommending against those meetings but i suspect there happen anyway. what is the additional anything dimension, is it a good edition, or is it difficult to have the family in tow? it certainly adds a burden to the embassy team who have to put together this security operation for the family members. it‘s not clear that they will be involved in the subsequent meetings, so it‘s unclear what they are doing here besides meeting the queen.
3:44 pm
but then, what is president tramp‘s agenda, his to—do list in terms of communicating anything other than meeting the queen —— president tramp. potentially, how do we deal with that giant chinese company, and how far to allow it to take part in telecoms, will that be an issue?” don‘t think any serious work will be done. the national security adviser is in london now, i think he is doing the hard work on that with his counterparts. the president is looking forward to the pomp and circumstance, and i don‘t imagine that the meeting between the president and the prime minister will really accomplish much in the way of serious policy. the serious policy is done elsewhere then, we mentioned the special relationship, there is a sense that we are coming up there is a sense that we are coming
3:45 pm
up to the d—day anniversary, and thatis up to the d—day anniversary, and that is a reminder of this special relationship, how real do you think it is at this point? it's a very real. it is a special relationship, shared history and values, we work together around the world. it‘s under strain right now thanks to president trump and backs it, but the foundations of this special relationship between government employees in london, and washington, remain very strong. we are all focused on prosperity, security and enhancing that relationship. before i let you go, a quick one on mexico. if you had been waking up in mexico city this morning and you‘d seen the us president, who has policies you have to defend an unseen 5% tariffs rising to 25, if nothing is done according to his wishes. what would you be doing? i think you be doing? ithinki you be doing? i think i would recommend that the mexican president to try to have a
3:46 pm
meeting as soon as possible with the us president. what he announced last night as a policy that makes no sense at all. people think there is method to his madness, i think it is more madness than method. that‘s a big thing for an american diplomat to say. for a senior american diplomat like yourself to say there is more madness than method. i think last night‘s a decision shows that it is incomprehensible to raise tariffs on mexico. it makes zero sense, he may not mean it. this could be a ploy, he‘s done this before where he creates a crisis and swoops in to fix it. but it will be interesting to see how this plays out. thank you so much for coming in. let‘s go live to madrid now, where liverpool managerjurgen klopp is giving a press conference ahead of tomorrow night‘s champion‘s league final, where his side take on tottenham hotspur i think the sign of a good side is
3:47 pm
being able to adapt to different circumstances and situations during games. iam circumstances and situations during games. i am sure the heat will cause problems for both teams. it‘s about us being able to prepare for that and be ready so we know it is going to be hard. but i think we‘ve got to be ready for it. we are mentally prepared for it. we got to give 100%. like he said, it's the same for both teams. we both need to deal with it. we are both from england, so both used to it a bit cooler. you know, once they again get started, we both have to deal with the same situation. it's something that we are prepared for, and you know, we've just landed and we are aware of it. we've played here before. we played abroad before. so it's something that we try and use, we know it will be hard but it is what it is.
3:48 pm
you obviously play against spurs regularly, what kind of team are they to play against? do you think it's fair to say that they are the underdogs tomorrow night? i think, underdogs tomorrow night? ithink, in underdogs tomorrow night? i think, in terms of champions league, and getting to the final, yes, they are. obviously we got there next year, and they never. but in terms of quality, and sides, i think it‘s quite even. they‘ve got world —class think it‘s quite even. they‘ve got world—class players, and so have we. tomorrow it‘s a fight until the end, to see who winds, who wants it more. i think it will be difficult for both sides. they both have game plans, and! both sides. they both have game plans, and i think it‘s fair to say that you know, it will be a tactical game from both sides. i am sure
3:49 pm
whoever comes out on top will be deserving and the best team will win. for me, you know, i don't think we are underdogs, personally. the games i've played against them in the premier league have been the toughest games we've played. and you know, the way they are set up, the way they could cause problems. we can cause them problems as well, just like any team. as trent said, we are both good squads, and it's about who shows up better on the day. if they are better than us, then they will win the game. and vice versa. if both teams play 100% to their potential it doesn't guarantee they will win. it will be decided on that special moment, or whatever. i think the two teams are fairly matched. we've had an unbelievable season and i'm full of confidence, we both are and we look forward to the challenge. we look forward to the challenge. we look forward to the challenge. we look forward to going toe to toe with
3:50 pm
them. ithink forward to going toe to toe with them. i think it's very even. hi, guys. i wanted to ask you about... we will hear more from the liverpool tea m we will hear more from the liverpool team in the sport section. we caught a taste of how they are feeling ahead of tomorrow night‘s match. now then. tadgh in a moment he will be telling us what‘s hot and what‘s not in the business news. first a look at the headlines on afternoon live. jewish groups call for the immediate expulsion of a member of labour‘s ruling body, peter willsman. it‘s after he was suspended from the party over comments about anti—semitism. donald trump announces drastic trade tariffs on mexico — he says they‘ll rise by 5% each month unless the country curbs immigration a seven—year—old boy who fell from a rollercoaster at lightwater valley theme park in yorkshire yesterday is believed to be in a critical but stable condition.
3:51 pm
here‘s your business headlines on afternoon live the warning from the confederation of british industry to conservative leadership hopefuls concentrated on the problems a no—deal brexit would mean for small businesses — director general carolyn fairbairn told bbc radio a‘s today programme they could not afford complex and costly contingency plans. she said "this idea that we are ready is just not true". house prices fell by a fifth of 1% between april and may in what nationwide building society describes as a subdued market. the lender said "uncertainty" was likely to weigh on the market in the coming months. the german insurer allianz will become a market leader here in britain after an 800 million pound deal to take control of two insurers here. it already owns almost half of lv general insurance but today it‘s announced it will buy the rest along with a deal to buy legal & general.
3:52 pm
here is a question, have you ever been mis—sold ppi insurance? you should know better. i think lots of people got duped into it. did you? know, not personally. i am sick of being asked by tv ads, but it‘s all coming to an end. this long—running campaign to ensure people who are entitled to compensation for mis—sold ppi get their compensation. you have to have your application and before august 29. billions of pounds has been repaid to consumers. the question is, is there more to come and how much more? joining us now is becky o‘connor, personal finance specialist, royal
3:53 pm
thank you very much forjoining us. is it possible to estimate how many people haven‘t claimed and how much more money they could be for them? it is possible to estimate but we don't know exactly how many people haven't claimed and how much the pay—outs are that they could be entitled to. we think there could be around 10 billion, left to pay out. i think almost 35 billion has been paid out to date, ga million policies were sold, roughly ga million. we think about a quarter of people have claimed, there is still quite a lot of room for claims to get to. so three quarters of people who were mis—sell still have to claim? how can you know, if you are unsuspecting at this stage, if you are among them? those tv ads have been running for years. that's the tricky thing, people aren't sure. they see the list of big lenders and
3:54 pm
think, i didn't have a credit card or mortgage with them, or a personal loan. but it could have been another brand that sold the ppi, and it was a bigger lender behind that policy. so store cards that you may have had, niche credit card names, argos, those are the kind of names that sold these policies. you may have had one without realising. and it doesn‘t cost anything to check, does? there are claims management companies but there are free services online that will do it for you. there is one called resolver where you put your details in and they will contact the lender on your behalf. what you need to know the name of the lender, or the name that you think is the lender's name, and your name, your date of birth, and any previous address details are really useful. you don't necessarily
3:55 pm
need policy details. it is possible to check back without that, although it obviously helps to have them to hand. you make an interesting point about claims management companies, and whether you need them or not. they want you to call them, you want you to let them manage it on your behalf, and they take a slice of your compensation. is it just behalf, and they take a slice of your compensation. is itjust as easy to do it yourself? rate is just as easy now, yes. they take about 20%, which if your claim is £10,000 is quite a chunk you are paying out, probably unnecessarily. given the wealth of help there is, for free, online now. thank you forjoining us with your advice today. shall we look at the markets? 0h, advice today. shall we look at the markets? oh, yeah. people aren't terribly happy with donald trump and that surprise announcement about ta riffs that surprise announcement about tariffs on mexican goods. all over the world their oil price has taken
3:56 pm
a hit. it‘s down by almost 3%, that is filtering through to minors and other commodity —based companies which are down by 2.3%. it wouldn‘t surprise me if he does a u—turn. indeed, and it doesn‘t come in until jim turns. ten days to get him to change his mind. the growth of house prices is slowing down, dipping between april and may, that is borne out in the performance of builders. thank you, we will see you later. it's thank you, we will see you later. it‘s now time for the weather. a blast of warmth for many of us this weekend, more on that in a moment. back to the here and now, a mixed picture across the uk. much of england and wales mostly dry and cloudy. glimpses of sunshine. this is jersey mid—morning but others saw quite a bit of rain, courtesy of
3:57 pm
this frontal system. it has been fairly persistent, and a large part of scotland, particularly the western isles have seen a0 to 50 millimetres of rain before it starts to ease away this evening. further south we see increasing amounts of sunshine across wales and south—west england. 21 or 22 celsius year, mid to high teens for scotland and northern ireland. sinking its way southwards, tending to fizzle out, quite a lot of cloud across northern england, further south, clear skies, mist and fog. temperatures for most hold up into double figures, 12 or 13 in the centre of town. through the weekend we got our air coming up from the south, pulling in warmer airfrom the continent, from the south, pulling in warmer air from the continent, that‘s going to spread across a large 5wathe of the uk. we start with some sunshine from the midlands and north wales, zones of cloud across north wales, the midlands and northern england
3:58 pm
could bring patchy rain. and northern ireland could see a drier day, temperatures in the mid to high teens. so the far north of scotland, we could see 27 or 28 across east anglia and south east england, a good deal of sunshine here. into sunday, some changes, this area of low pressure arrives. that returns no range of scotland, northern ireland, north—west england and wales. try with the best of the sunshine the further south and east you are. a fewer heavy, thundery showers through the afternoon. winds strengthen as well, a breezy day, holding onto their warmth for one more day across south—east england and east anglia. 2a25 celsius here, back down to the mid to high teens further west. wetter and windier. for monday and tuesday, a cooler feel across the uk, some rain the 01:58:58,958 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 further north and west you are.
