The Chancellor speaks out against Cabinet members briefing

Philip Hammond has told some colleagues to focus on their jobs,

:00:09.:00:13.

instead of trying to undermine him because of his views on Brexit.

:00:14.:00:21.

I am not going to talk about what comes out of a private cabinet

meeting. Five colleagues have done. They should not have done because

cabinet meetings he should be a private space in which we have a

serious discussion. We'll be looking at the implications

of the divisions at Roger Federer the record breaker -

believing. Tougher punishments for acid attacks

are to be considered by the government after hundreds

:01:05.:01:06.

of incidents so far this year. The Chancellor, Philip Hammond,

:01:07.:01:10.

has said Cabinet colleagues who have been briefing the media against him

should instead focus After newspaper reports

about discussions around the Cabinet table,

not for the reasons he'd like. For the second time this week,

:02:04.:02:09.

the Chancellor has found himself defending private

comments in public. This time accused of saying public

sector workers are overpaid. I have told you, I'm not

:02:15.:02:16.

going to talk about what They shouldn't have done

:02:17.:02:27.

frankly because Cabinet meetings are supposed to be

:02:28.:02:35.

a private space in which we have a You would expect me to put any

discussion about public sector pay in the context of the

:02:39.:02:43.

fiscal and economic situation that Among the millions of public sector

workers, it's teachers out protesting today,

:02:56.:02:59.

at a festival in Dorset, the Labour leader accused the Chancellor

:03:00.:03:01.

of being out of touch. I think he's living

on a different planet to many Public sector workers have had

frozen wages for the past seven Health workers in reality have

had a 14% cut in pay. Many teachers don't stay

on in the profession because they can't afford to find

:03:15.:03:17.

somewhere to live on the salaries they get and the strain

:03:18.:03:19.

they are under because of shortages. The Chancellor hinted today

:03:20.:03:24.

there could be better news for public sector workers

:03:25.:03:26.

at the budget later this year, but in an unusual move,

:03:27.:03:31.

he slapped down Cabinet rivals Some of the noise is generated

:03:32.:03:34.

by people who are not happy with the agenda that I have,

:03:35.:03:45.

over the last few weeks, tried to advance of ensuring that we achieve

:03:46.:03:50.

a Brexit which is focused on protecting our economy,

:03:51.:03:53.

protecting our jobs and making sure we can

:03:54.:03:54.

have continued rising living

:03:55.:03:56.

standards in the future. One of the Cabinet's prominent

:03:57.:04:05.

Leave campaigners, the International Trade Secretary,

:04:06.:04:09.

denied being behind the briefings. I absolutely deplore

:04:10.:04:11.

leaks from the Cabinet. I think my colleagues should be very

:04:12.:04:12.

quiet, stick to their own departmental duties, and I think

:04:13.:04:16.

that the public expect us to be disciplined and effective,

:04:17.:04:19.

our backbenchers are furious and the only people smiling at this will be

:04:20.:04:24.

in Berlin and Paris. Public sector workers

:04:25.:04:26.

continue to make their As it seems do members

:04:27.:04:28.

of the Cabinet, who, with the Prime Minister's authority

:04:29.:04:37.

in tatters, are in no mood to do as they are

:04:38.:04:39.

told. How much should we make of what

:04:40.:04:48.

Philip Hammond has said today? The knives are out for the Chancellor

:04:49.:04:51.

and there are a number of factors playing into this. The row over

:04:52.:04:56.

public sector pay itself. The Chancellor is intent on the

:04:57.:04:58.

Government holding its nerve and dealing with the country byes-mac

:04:59.:05:01.

debt, yet a handful of ministers have made clear they think the

:05:02.:05:05.

party's position on pay damaged them during the election. But it is

:05:06.:05:09.

decisions on what type of Brexit we end up with, something that will

:05:10.:05:11.

affect generations and generations to come, that have a significant

:05:12.:05:16.

part of the briefings against the Chancellor. With opposition inside

:05:17.:05:22.

the Cabinet to his insistence that jobs in the economy, rather than

:05:23.:05:24.

immigration, should take priority during the Brexit negotiations.

:05:25.:05:29.

Added that the Prime Minister's own weakness and the jostling and

:05:30.:05:31.

speculation and party leadership and you have got the key ingredients for

:05:32.:05:37.

a pretty big row. But Conservative backbenchers do not want a

:05:38.:05:40.

leadership contest and as they prepare the summer break, they are

:05:41.:05:44.

calling for calm. You mentioned Brexit negotiations would restart

:05:45.:05:47.

tomorrow morning. Today, the Chancellor touched on annex it built

:05:48.:05:53.

from the that financial is adamant that Britain will have to pay when

:05:54.:06:00.

leaving the E will be -- EU will be subject discussion. Boris Johnson

:06:01.:06:09.

said Brussels to go and whistle if it wanted Britain to pay a hefty

:06:10.:06:12.

fine. Today, the Chancellor said Britain would paste debts if they

:06:13.:06:16.

had been verified. There is a key issue around European citizens here

:06:17.:06:26.

and British citizens abroad. As the Brexit secretary prepares for talks,

:06:27.:06:29.

he has called for both sides to get down to business. A sign I think

:06:30.:06:33.

that initial pleasantries over and detox have entered a far more

:06:34.:06:35.

serious stage. -- and the talks. Roger Federer made history on Centre

:06:36.:06:45.

Court today, taking the men's single's title at Wimbledon

:06:46.:06:47.

for a record eighth time. He beat Croatia's Marin

:06:48.:06:49.

Cilic in straight sets. It's Federer's 19th Grand Slam title

:06:50.:06:51.

and his second since returning from a six-month break

:06:52.:06:54.

at the beginning of the year, Mr Cilic, meet the greatest

:06:55.:06:56.

man to play tennis. Everyone knew the status

:06:57.:07:04.

of Roger Federer and We had seen his magnificent seven

:07:05.:07:09.

titles at Wimbledon. Now the unique,

:07:10.:07:13.

all-encompassing eighth. Marin Cilic of Croatia began

:07:14.:07:17.

the match trying to be positive, Even when you think you have got

:07:18.:07:20.

Federer beat, assumed In the first set alone, Federer

:07:21.:07:24.

displayed his full repertoire. Even when Cilic got his serve

:07:25.:07:34.

in, there was Federer. The body language of Cilic varied

:07:35.:07:44.

from anger to something Midway through the second set,

:07:45.:07:49.

we wondered if he would A blistered foot did not help

:07:50.:07:53.

but the key factor was Federer. In the final, Cilic won eight games,

:07:54.:07:59.

Federer has won eight titles. He took the trophy

:08:00.:08:02.

on its familiar tour. They are waiting

:08:03.:08:09.

beneath the balcony. As we watch Roger Federer back

:08:10.:08:13.

at the summit, let's remember that just last year,

:08:14.:08:18.

he had months away from tennis. There was a knee injury, surgery,

:08:19.:08:22.

recovery, we were contemplating You know, I always believed that

:08:23.:08:24.

I could maybe come back and do it again and if you believe,

:08:25.:08:39.

you can go really far in your life. I kept believing and dreaming

:08:40.:08:42.

and here I am today. With 19 Grand Slams,

:08:43.:08:46.

Federer is still well behind Look out for her when she

:08:47.:08:49.

returns from pregnancy. But in the male game,

:08:50.:08:53.

Federer is on his own. What if Rod Laver had not

:08:54.:08:56.

been banned in the 1960s He would surely have won more

:08:57.:09:01.

than his 11 Grand Slams. Bjorn Borg won five consecutive

:09:02.:09:07.

Wimbledons but his whole career Pete Sampras won seven times

:09:08.:09:09.

at Wimbledon, supreme on grass, he never managed the

:09:10.:09:17.

French title on clay. So, if nobody in tennis quite

:09:18.:09:19.

compares, is Federer If you compare him to any other

:09:20.:09:22.

athlete in the world, You talk about Formula 1, running,

:09:23.:09:27.

basketball, football... I don't think there is anyone

:09:28.:09:35.

like Roger Federer at the moment. With four children at 35,

:09:36.:09:38.

Roger Federer won his eighth title Defying time is not simply

:09:39.:09:42.

restricted to science fiction. Thousands of opposition

:09:43.:09:51.

demonstrators have gathered outside the Polish parliament to protest

:09:52.:09:53.

about legislation that gives politicians control over the body

:09:54.:09:55.

that appoints judges. Critics say the new law -

:09:56.:10:04.

proposed by the ruling Law and Justice party -

:10:05.:10:07.

erodes the independence of the judiciary and

:10:08.:10:09.

undermines democracy. Tougher sentences for people
