the daily telegraph says that in a world—first, france will ban supermarkets and producers from destroying clothes and electronics. instead they have to give them away. and in the new york times is a report that shows how the progressive paternity leave allowances in sweden are having a positive impact on the mental health of new mothers. david buikl is back as promised. let's get going. i thought this was really interesting. to look at what the us media is saying about president trump's visit to the uk, and the washington post in particular looking at this debate about whether the nhs is going to be about whether the nhs is going to be a part of a new trade deal or not
between the uk and the us are —— david buik. it was quite interesting to hear what president trump had to say and what theresa may had to say. he had this sort of twinkle in his eye, he loves being controversial. he throws a boulder, creates the soon army he throws a boulder, creates the soon army wave of he throws a boulder, creates the soon army wave of dislike and come on, guys, wake up, the nhs is never for sale —— tsumami wave. he didn't need the official seal of approval. we know that. we know that, but were people really so sure? are you serious? in a future trade deal between the uk in the united states we aren't seeing the nhs is for sale but contracts to provide services for the nhs, cleaning of food, or whatever they may be... procurement of drugs is the most important. the us could benefit from those contracts. but that isn't the sale
of the nhs, it's the steer of it. this is the treasure of all treasures, the nhs. it's not going anywhere. but like all of these things, there are huge levels of inefficiency. it's quite interesting to see how the washington post says the brits are fiercely protective. we are. and our health system couldn't be any more different to theirs. and the democrats were desperately trying to get the price of drugs down and were always getting towards the by the republicans in congress. this has political connotations for them, too. president trump did say on this subject maybe not the nhs, mayjust a part of it. he loves it. he can't get enough. talking it up. well, that's david buik‘s promise. let's
move that's david buik‘s promise. let's m ove o nto that's david buik‘s promise. let's move onto the moscow times. going global today. it's really interesting. it looks at the crimean economy and how it has done since russia very controversially annexed crimea. this is classic putin. i suppose if i am hugely critical, i was a great fan of barack obama, but i think was a great fan of barack obama, but ithink in was a great fan of barack obama, but i think in terms of foreign policy, he was a nightmare because he didn't get enough done. we've given huge impetus to china and russia. russia was allowed to sweep ukraine aside but keep strategically the crimea for military and business purposes. and as i understand it, they put in $30 billion worth of infrastructure and construction building. and at a time when the russian economy was in a difficult spot. the price of oil following the annexation of crimea
came down significantly. and there we re came down significantly. and there were also subject to sanctions. sanctions and reprisals, exactly right. and we've seen construction around sevastopol has grown by 70%. manufacture in agriculture 3.4% in just the last three months. exceptional. is very interesting and very political. hugely! you've got to offer your heart to him, he is in the driving seat and i don't like it. -- the driving seat and i don't like it. —— hat. the driving seat and i don't like it. -- hat. and this about tesla. $2 billion of cash. that's quite a big loss. the los angeles times saying within the car industry they can sell these carbon credits. they can. this is an industry recovering from the emissions cheating scandal. this is an industry recovering from the emissions cheating scandallj ee, the emissions cheating scandallj agree, but he's a clever fellow, elon musk. whatever he's doing,
flying to the moon, i think this is a smokescreen. call me an old cynic, you are probably right, but his share price has halved in the last two years. she has a down from $383 two years. she has a down from $383 two years. she has a down from $383 two years ago 23june two $193 yesterday. a4 $.9 billion trading loss posted four days ago and he has to show his shareholders that he understands the frustration they have, expensive cars not coming off the conveyor belt quickly enough. the end product is great but that isn't going to pay the shareholders' dividend and that isn't going to pay for profitability. he has to create an atmosphere. one to help raise cash. exactly. let's move onto the telegraph which is interesting, actually. we've had a week of the sorts of stories. yesterday we looked at waitrose, the uk supermarket encouraging people to bring on their own plastic containers. this story is saying or
a world first, francis to pass legislation banning supermarkets and producers from destroying unsold non—food items. so clothes, electronics, that i'd have been. they have to give it away or recycle it at the very least. —— or recycle at least. you see all of these big supermarkets, you have the look at the demographics. france is rural. people are miles away, therefore, when you go to a clare or curra for, it's stuck with clothes and electronics because it's much more ofa electronics because it's much more of a 1—stop shop —— carrefour, when you get service from them, you cannot see this stuff trust or burned or chucked away. it should be given to people who need it and i'm all for that. i like to see much more of that sort of ring happening
even more of that sort of ring happening eve n over more of that sort of ring happening even over here. it's a real response to demand as well from the consumer, because the view, an opinion we're getting in all the surveys we are receiving here at the bbc from various different organisations bodies such as the world bank s show that the issue of climate is really up that the issue of climate is really up there worrying people all around the world —— body such as the world bank show. productivity in france is much higher than it is here, i think 5-6%. i think it is nearly 1096, much higher than it is here, i think 5-6%. ithink it is nearly 10%, off 5-696. ithink it is nearly 1096, off the top of my head. exactly. it's been high for a long, long time. let's look at this final story. sweden finds a new way to improve new mothers was held, it involves dads. this is the new york times. this law came into effect in sweden in 2012 but this is a new study to show the impact it has had. this is about dads having 30 days of paid
leave at the same time the mummers. quite soon after birth.|j leave at the same time the mummers. quite soon after birth. i think the idea that the pressure, because we have a society that is quite different. generally, now women were, they are really full—time mothers, who can afford it? the idea is that dad gets 30 days at the same time, it's probably not that sensible because no—one is going to get the real benefit from it? is research said in the months after the birth, that is when the mother perhaps need the help because she might be dealing with mental health issues. i agree. or physical health issues, and if dad is there to look after the baby, she is more likely to get the help she needs. after the baby, she is more likely to get the help she needslj after the baby, she is more likely to get the help she needs. i like the flexibility there. you are right, there needs to be time to treasure the new addition to the family. also be there to help. the
hands—on help. family. also be there to help. the hands-on help. i think that helps as well. you have this appalling united states where apparently president up and saying doesn't like the idea that you could have as much as three months off because it's bad for industry. in the united states, that's the only company, country with mandated paid leave for fathers. to go from nothing to 30 daysis fathers. to go from nothing to 30 days is a big leap and not likely to happen. i don't know. you are a grandfather, for your daughters, this would be a huge benefit to them. it would be enormous and i think it makes an awful lot of sense. presumably, a lot of the work done on this is to make sure that growth isn't seriously damaged. david, it's been a pleasure to have you here as per usual. thanks, as always. i hope you have a really good day today, whatever you are doing. i'll see you soon, goodbye.
hello. most parts of the uk saw some wet weather on tuesday. today the low centre is going to flow into the north sea but we will see a weather front trailing to the rear of that, bringing some rain into the northern half of the uk. and then notice this low here for the south across the continent, more possibly to come out of that as we look at the forecast for overnight and into thursday. but let's start with this morning and that pretty grey and wet start for scotland and northern ireland. slightly breezy here as well, still close to the low centre. further south, it's a quieter start. a few showers for northern england and northern wales. some sunshine as we make our way into southern england. first thing, perhaps a bit of brightness for the north—east of england, some showers to the north—west, a few for north wales. some decent sunshine as we head further south into england. a few early—morning patches of mist are possible, but they should be fairly short—lived. and actually, for england and wales on the whole,
a lot of fine weather. perhaps a bit of sunshine, as well, just getting into southern scotland later on in the day. just a chance of a few showers forming across the centre of the south—west peninsula, off towards 0xfordshire, through the afternoon. in terms of our temperatures, just 12 there in aberdeen, perhaps up to 20 further south, where we get more in the way of sunshine. then we go through wednesday evening into thursday. remember that front down there across the continent? looks like it's just going to bump some rain up towards the far east of england. now, there is some uncertainty as to how far onshore this pulse of rain will make it. if it does come onshore, it could be very heavy. at the moment, it looks like the majority will sit offshore in the north sea. actually, our wednesday night into thursday does look largely dry, but through thursday daytime, we certainly are expecting that low to track its way further north. but again, the uncertainty is in the detail as to exactly how tight into the east coast it will come, and how quickly it will move north into scotland. thursday for many will be a pretty decent day, with some bright or sunny spells, but there is a chance certainly on some of those north sea coasts for some heavier pulses of rain at times. and then, later in the day, the heavier, more persistent rain
and some pretty blustery winds to make their way into scotland. scattered showers for northern ireland, too. 0ur temperatures still somewhat on the disappointing side. average values at best, perhaps a little below. that low pushes away to the north for friday, but then we're looking at another system firing up from the continent to close out our week, with almost all areas likely to see some heavy rain at some stage, and some strong and gusty winds. again, the timing will be quite difficult, because we're expecting to see these areas of low pressure firing through in quick succession. but certainly wet to the south on friday, still unsettled for the weekend.
good morning and welcome to a special edition of breakfast with me dan walker, as we mark the 75th anniversary of the d—day landings. 0ur headlines today: the queen will be joined here in portsmouth by theresa may, president trump, and other world leaders, to commemorate the allied invasion of nazi—occupied france. throughout the programme we'll be hearing from the heroes of d—day, veterans who are now over 90 years old. we really didn't think about the danger, we knew we had a job to do and if anything happened to us that was
