Beyond One Hundred Days.

0:00:080:00:10

Facebook lost control of its users'

data and failed to tackle

0:00:100:00:13

the vulnerabilities in its system.

0:00:130:00:16

The man formerly in charge

of policing data breaches

0:00:160:00:19

at Facebook tells a committee

of British MPs he had

0:00:190:00:21

warned senior figures

at the company - but was ignored.

0:00:210:00:27

Facebook approached data

like it was "the Wild West frontier"

0:00:270:00:30

claims Sandy Parakilas,

and the amount of data that left

0:00:300:00:33

Facebook he says was "vast".

0:00:330:00:36

Is Russia's World Cup

games really comparable

0:00:360:00:37

to Hitler's Munich Olympics?

0:00:380:00:41

Boris Johnson says it is,

prompting outrage from Moscow.

0:00:410:00:45

I think the comparison

with 1936 is certainly right.

0:00:450:00:51

Also on the programme.

0:00:510:00:55

The pornstar, the Playmate,

and the reality TV

0:00:550:00:57

contestant - President Trump

could be facing three

0:00:570:00:59

civil lawsuits.

0:00:590:01:01

As if he didn't have enough legal

issues to deal with.

0:01:010:01:06

And the US housing secretary

who bought a $31,000

0:01:060:01:08

dining room set for his office last

year - it wasn't my fault, he says.

0:01:080:01:11

Blame my wife.

0:01:120:01:14

Get in touch with us

using the hashtag

0:01:140:01:16

'Beyond-One-Hundred-Days'.

0:01:160:01:26

Hello I'm Katty Kay

in Washington, Christian

0:01:270:01:28

Fraser is in London.

0:01:280:01:32

Facebook had a "wild west" approach

to users' data and little interest

0:01:320:01:34

in making sure profiles were used

appropriately - that's according

0:01:340:01:37

to a former Facebook employee who's

been testifying before

0:01:370:01:39

a parliamentary committee.

0:01:390:01:40

Sandy Parakalis worked on data

protection at the company

0:01:400:01:42

from 2011 to 2012 and has now

become a whistleblower.

0:01:420:01:49

He told MPs for years data had been

leaving the Facebook service and

0:01:490:01:55

going to an unfettered group of

people. He said it was a risk the

0:01:550:02:00

company was willing to take in order

to grow the platform as quickly as

0:02:000:02:04

possible.

With that the affair

analogy for the way Facebook

0:02:040:02:13

approached data, like the wild west

Frontier?

So the approach to that,

0:02:130:02:22

the wild West is an appropriate

analogy for top all this coming from

0:02:220:02:28

the fallout that was the Cambridge

Analytica took millions of profiles

0:02:280:02:33

from Facebook and used them to sway

support for the Trump campaign.

Here

0:02:330:02:35

is Simon Jack.

0:02:350:02:38

The pressure on Mark Zuckerberg

is growing to give his version

0:02:380:02:41

of how the personal data

of 50 million Facebook users ended

0:02:410:02:43

up with a consultancy that worked

on the successful election campaign

0:02:430:02:46

of Donald Trump and was secretly

filmed boasting of their influence.

0:02:460:02:50

The Cambridge academic who came up

with the original app says

0:03:000:03:03

he is stunned by the controversy.

0:03:030:03:11

Never in our wildest dreams did

we think anything we did would be

0:03:110:03:15

used in the Donald Trump campaign.

0:03:150:03:16

This is 2014.

0:03:160:03:17

Well before anybody would

think Mr Trump would be

0:03:170:03:19

a serious candidate.

0:03:190:03:20

So at the time, I didn't

know who their clients

0:03:200:03:23

were going to be and I did not know

the specific case.

0:03:230:03:26

I did know it was going to be used

for political purposes

0:03:260:03:28

but beyond that, yes,

it was well above my pay grade.

0:03:280:03:33

I should have asked!

0:03:330:03:34

Although he did sign an undertaking

that is migratory was from research

0:03:340:03:44

-- his app was for research only

and would never be used

0:03:440:03:47

for commercial purposes.

0:03:470:03:52

The implication in the story

is democracy has somehow

0:03:520:03:54

been undermined and that drew

a political response today.

0:03:540:03:56

The allegations are clearly very

concerning and it is absolutely

0:03:560:03:58

right that they should be

investigated, it is right

0:03:580:04:00

that the Information Commissioner

is doing exactly that,

0:04:000:04:02

because people need to have

confidence in how their personal

0:04:020:04:05

data is being used.

0:04:050:04:06

So how much are we, as consumers,

to blame for surrendering

0:04:060:04:08

the facts of our lives?

0:04:080:04:10

The conservation we should be having

is, what happens to our data,

0:04:100:04:12

how much are we comfortable

to share, who with, and what we

0:04:120:04:15

think about how that is done?

0:04:150:04:18

So this feels to me like a real

light bulb moment where people

0:04:180:04:21

are understanding that it is not

just clicking like on Facebook,

0:04:210:04:23

you are giving data away.

0:04:230:04:26

So far, this scandal has

cost Facebook, whose

0:04:260:04:32

London headquarters are there,

$50 billion in market value

0:04:320:04:34

and untold reputational damage.

0:04:340:04:35

The Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg

has been silent and he will speak

0:04:350:04:42

tonight , but how much

responsibility could

0:04:420:04:43

he and should he take for the misuse

of his own customers data?

0:04:430:04:47

Cambridge Analytica have always

denied they used the harvested data

0:04:470:04:50

in the Trump campaign

and deny any wrongdoing.

0:04:500:04:54

Mark Zuckerberg will need a better

statement than that.

0:04:540:05:04

Well Facebook have been talking to

committees on Capitol Hill.

0:05:060:05:12

Democratic Congressman

Joaquin Castro sits

0:05:120:05:13

on the House Intelligence committee

- which Cambridge Analytica's former

0:05:130:05:16

CEO testified before and then mocked

in the Channel 4 expose on the firm.

0:05:160:05:19

He joined me from capitol

hill a short time ago.

0:05:190:05:23

So Congressmen Castro,

you have had members of Facebook's

0:05:230:05:25

staff coming to speak to people

on the Intel committee

0:05:250:05:28

on Capitol Hill today.

0:05:280:05:34

Are you getting any more answers

from them than we have had so far

0:05:340:05:38

about what was going

on in their role in terms

0:05:380:05:40

of their users data being used

in political campaigns?

0:05:400:05:46

Well, of course I cannot speak

directly to what they told us

0:05:460:05:48

before the committees.

0:05:490:05:50

But I can tell you there

are still a lot of unanswered

0:05:500:05:52

questions we have about for example

how many different groups may have

0:05:520:05:55

got access to the same data that

Cambridge Analytica God.

0:05:550:05:58

-- got.

0:05:580:05:59

Whether Cambridge Analytica

to the best of Facebook's knowledge

0:05:590:06:01

shared that information

with any other groups.

0:06:010:06:03

And what safeguards they put

in place now to prevent that

0:06:030:06:05

from happening in the future.

0:06:060:06:07

Do you think Facebook

realises the seriousness

0:06:070:06:08

now of this situation?

0:06:080:06:11

I think they have come a long way

from where they started

0:06:110:06:21

right after the election,

where of course their CEO

0:06:220:06:27

and executives really denied that

Facebook as a platform was abused

0:06:270:06:30

or misused in any way.

0:06:300:06:31

I think it has become very clear

that if they are going to continue

0:06:310:06:34

to be a news source,

a major news source

0:06:340:06:37

in the United States

and around the world,

0:06:370:06:39

that they are going to have

to safeguard their platform a lot

0:06:390:06:41

better than they have.

0:06:410:06:42

They sat on this information that

Cambridge Analytica had 50,000,000

0:06:420:06:45

users profiles for 2 years.

0:06:450:06:49

So what prompted the change of heart

on the part of the company?

0:06:490:06:53

I think all of the revelations that

have come out, the wonderful

0:06:530:06:55

journalism that has been done,

the reporting, about exactly how

0:06:550:06:58

the platform was misused,

I think also the investigations that

0:06:580:07:00

have been conducted in public

and in classified settings.

0:07:000:07:02

Or not classified, our investigation

actually was not classified

0:07:020:07:05

but in a sensitive setting.

0:07:050:07:06

So you know, all that work I think

has been helpful in getting Facebook

0:07:060:07:09

to come to the table and realise

that they have a role to play

0:07:090:07:12

in helping to protect

American democracy.

0:07:120:07:19

At one point in the latest report

from Channel 4 News,

0:07:190:07:22

one of the members and I think

0:07:220:07:26

it was Alexander Nix, says,

we went to speak to members

0:07:260:07:29

of Congress but frankly,

you know what, they didn't even know

0:07:290:07:31

what questions to ask us.

0:07:310:07:32

They were ignorant, they did not

understand the technology.

0:07:320:07:35

Is that a fair representation of why

it has taken lawmakers not just

0:07:350:07:39

on this side of the Atlantic

but in the UK as well,

0:07:390:07:42

so long to address this issue?

0:07:420:07:47

I think part of the challenge

we have had was some witnesses not

0:07:470:07:51

being honest and not being candid

and they have played hide the ball.

0:07:510:07:54

I would put Alexander Nix in that

category and the problem has been

0:07:540:07:57

that when we have asked questions

the majority on the committee

0:07:570:08:01

which is controlled by Republicans,

have been unwilling to issue any

0:08:010:08:09

kind of subpoena or phone records

or computer records or travel

0:08:090:08:12

records to verify what has been told

to us or to contradict anything that

0:08:120:08:15

has been told to us.

0:08:150:08:16

When I watch these two

reports, I came away,

0:08:160:08:19

and it sounds kind of grandiose,

with the impression that Western

0:08:190:08:22

democracy has fundamentally changed.

0:08:220:08:24

The way votes are cast,

the way elections are won or lost

0:08:240:08:28

has changed significantly.

0:08:280:08:30

In a way that is worrying.

0:08:300:08:37

That kind of degrades the concept

of one person, one vote.

0:08:370:08:40

Is that too extreme, or is

that the direction we're heading in?

0:08:400:08:43

I think the big concern

that many of us have

0:08:430:08:45

is that for bad actors,

whether it is a Russian

0:08:450:08:48

operative placing Facebook

ads, fake Facebook ads,

0:08:480:08:51

or Cambridge Analytica,

social media has become the perfect

0:08:510:08:53

platform for their propaganda.

0:08:530:08:58

And social, we are in a full

social media age now.

0:08:580:09:01

Where people get more

of their information

0:09:010:09:09

from the social media companies

than from the traditional sources

0:09:090:09:11

in broadcasting and print.

0:09:110:09:12

And so to the extent that these

platforms can be abused

0:09:120:09:15

and are being abused,

that is a big hit for our democracy.

0:09:150:09:18

Congressmen Castro, thank you very

much for joining us.

0:09:180:09:20

We are in a full social media age.

0:09:200:09:22

Thank you.

0:09:220:09:27

A fairly terrifying thought.

0:09:270:09:29

Does Vladimir Putin have

something in common

0:09:290:09:30

with Adolf Hitler?

0:09:310:09:32

Britain's foreign secretary

seems to think so.

0:09:320:09:33

Boris Johnson said today

the Russian President will use this

0:09:330:09:37

year's world cup tournament the same

way the Nazi leader used the 1936

0:09:370:09:40

Berlin Olympics - for propaganda.

0:09:400:09:44

In return Russia's foreign

ministry spokeswoman said

0:09:440:09:47

Mr Johnson is "poisoned with hatred

and anger" adding that she found

0:09:470:09:50

it frightening that he

represents a nuclear power.

0:09:500:09:54

As you can see,

relations are not good.

0:09:540:09:58

This war of words follows

the expulsion yesterday of 23

0:09:580:10:00

Russsian diplomats -

and the same number of British

0:10:000:10:03

diplomats will be leaving

Moscow any day now.

0:10:030:10:06

How much worse will it get?

0:10:060:10:08

Mr Johnson has been taking

questions from the Foreign

0:10:080:10:10

Affairs Select Committee.

0:10:100:10:14

He feels Russia lost

out and so he wants to

0:10:140:10:16

cause trouble wherever he can.

0:10:160:10:21

A desire for the world

to take Russia

0:10:210:10:23

seriously again

at all, at any price.

0:10:230:10:25

And of course his principal

audience for this is not us.

0:10:250:10:28

It is his domestic audience.

0:10:280:10:30

Who want, after what

they see as all these

0:10:300:10:33

humiliations, who want to feel that

Russia is strong again.

0:10:330:10:38

And it is ruled by someone

who is strong and

0:10:380:10:40

capable of expressing his strength

and his desire for revenge.

0:10:400:10:42

Even in a place like Salisbury.

0:10:420:10:47

The Labour MP Ian Austin also raised

concerns around this

0:10:470:10:50

summer's football World Cup

in Russia making comparisons

0:10:500:10:52

with Hitler's 1936 Berlin Olympics.

0:10:520:10:54

They got the right to stage

the World Cup clearly through

0:10:540:10:56

corruption.

0:10:560:10:57

Putin's going to use it the way

Hitler used the 1936

0:10:570:11:00

Olympics.

0:11:000:11:02

The idea of Putin handing over the

world to the captain of the winning

0:11:020:11:06

team fills me with horror.

0:11:060:11:07

I'm afraid that's completely right.

0:11:070:11:09

The idea of Putin using this as a PR

exercise to gloss over the corrupt

0:11:090:11:12

regime for which he is responsible

fills me with horror.

0:11:120:11:18

The Russians are still

denying any involvement

0:11:180:11:20

in the attack on former spy

Sergei Skripal, and now

0:11:200:11:22

they're even more enraged,

because the UK's ambassador

0:11:220:11:26

to Russia did not attend a meeting

in Moscow about the nerve

0:11:260:11:28

agent that was used.

0:11:290:11:31

The Kremlin says it's another

example of Britain refusing

0:11:310:11:34

to listen to its answers.

0:11:340:11:36

Now Moscow is even suggesting

Britain may itself be

0:11:360:11:38

behind the poisoning.

0:11:380:11:45

The basic logic here reveals just

two possible options.

0:11:450:11:47

The British government

either is not capable

0:11:470:11:51

of defending its country from such

a - let's say - terror

0:11:510:11:54

attack on their territory

or they are directly or indirectly -

0:11:540:12:00

I'm not accusing anyone of anything

- staged an attack on a Russian

0:12:000:12:03

female citizen.

0:12:030:12:06

In the last few minutes the Foreign

and Commonwealth Office has

0:12:060:12:11

responded saying a British embassy

representative attending the

0:12:110:12:16

briefing and received no credible

explanation. In contrast to Russia

0:12:160:12:20

it continues, the UK is fully

compliant with its obligations under

0:12:200:12:24

the Chemical Weapons Convention with

the experts are returning to the UK

0:12:240:12:28

to collect samples. While I was

looking at Twitter I spotted this

0:12:280:12:33

from President Trump. He was pretty

angry about the media response to

0:12:330:12:37

his call yesterday with President

Putin. The fake news media is

0:12:370:12:42

crazed, they're wrong, getting along

with Russia and others is a good

0:12:420:12:47

thing not a bad thing. He is

responding to a report in the

0:12:470:12:51

Washington Post today, a leak of the

briefing notes he was given before

0:12:510:12:55

the call.

Yes, President Trump was

given briefing notes before his call

0:12:550:13:02

President Putin yesterday and

according to the Washington Post in

0:13:020:13:04

those notes, in capital letters, it

was written, do not congratulate.

0:13:040:13:10

And what does he do, he goes ahead

to congratulate him. We do not know

0:13:100:13:14

if he ignored the briefing, had not

read it, but it seems his cross

0:13:140:13:20

about the fact there was some kind

of leak because it is all over the

0:13:200:13:23

media. But not just the president

who responded to this, a group of

0:13:230:13:31

senators were up on Capitol Hill

yesterday and giving a briefing

0:13:310:13:35

about another issue and they were

asked by a journalist about resonant

0:13:350:13:38

Trump congratulating resident Putin

put up here is their answer.

We're

0:13:380:13:43

talking about connection integrity.

0:13:430:13:46

Could you comment on the idea

that the president today

0:13:460:13:49

called Vladimir Putin

to congratulate him on winning his

0:13:490:13:51

election?

0:13:510:13:59

That is all for. Time for lunch.

It

is the speed of the leak and

0:13:590:14:09

sensitivity that has angered the

cheese of staff. Dashed chief of

0:14:090:14:15

staff. Because it came from a close

number of people in the Oval Office.

0:14:150:14:21

It seems someone on the national

security side did not like the fact

0:14:210:14:26

that resident Trump congratulated

Vladimir Putin and wanted it to be

0:14:260:14:29

known they think it is a bad idea.

So they went ahead and leaks the

0:14:290:14:33

fact that the president had been

briefed not to make that

0:14:330:14:35

congratulatory statement at the

beginning of the call. The president

0:14:350:14:40

clearly is going to do exactly what

it wants to do and I'm hearing there

0:14:400:14:43

is something of a witchhunt going on

inside the White House at the moment

0:14:430:14:47

to try to find out who is

responsible. As we've just suggested

0:14:470:14:53

he has quite a lot of headaches at

the moment. Legal headaches as well.

0:14:530:15:01

There's the Mueller probe,

Congressional investigations

0:15:010:15:02

and then there are the women.

0:15:020:15:04

This week the spotlight has turned

on Mr Trump's personal

0:15:040:15:06

life and there seems to be some risk

of legal problems.

0:15:060:15:09

Here's where we are today.

0:15:090:15:13

The porn star, the Playmate,

and reality TV contestant.

0:15:130:15:15

Three women putting

pressure on Donald Trump.

0:15:150:15:17

Stephanie Clifford goes by the stage

name Stormy Daniels.

0:15:170:15:23

Stormy is what she

could be for the White

0:15:230:15:25

House.

0:15:250:15:29

She says she had an affair

with Trump in 2006.

0:15:290:15:32

And a few weeks before

the 2016 election, his

0:15:320:15:36

lawyer mysteriously

paid her $130,000.

0:15:360:15:36

Stormy's tough LA lawyer says

she was physically threatened

0:15:360:15:39

and warned to keep silent.

0:15:390:15:41

Mr Trump denies the relationship.

0:15:410:15:44

But in a polygraph test

that she chose to take in 2011,

0:15:440:15:48

she answered, yes,

to these questions.

0:15:480:15:55

Actually, I'm going to pass on even

reading these aloud.

0:15:550:15:58

As Miss Daniels herself recently

tweeted, technically, I didn't sleep

0:15:580:16:00

with the POTUS 12 years ago.

0:16:000:16:02

There was no sleeping.

0:16:020:16:05

PS.

0:16:050:16:06

I'm not going anywhere.

0:16:060:16:08

Mr Trump was allegedly busy in 2006

because that was the year Karen

0:16:080:16:11

McDougal, a Playboy model, also

claims to have been having an affair

0:16:110:16:13

with him.

0:16:140:16:20

In 2016 Miss McDougall was also

paid, $150,000, by tabloid

0:16:200:16:22

paper which never published her

account of the affair.

0:16:220:16:26

Now Karen McDougal wants

a court to declare

0:16:260:16:33

that agreement null and void -

she says she was tricked into

0:16:330:16:36

signing it.

0:16:360:16:37

The third woman is Summer Servos.

0:16:370:16:39

Summer was a contestant

on the Apprentice in 2007.

0:16:390:16:49

When, she says, Mr Trump groped her

and kissed her against her will.

0:16:510:16:54

The Trump campaign, branded her

and other women as liars.

0:16:540:16:57

Now she has filed

a lawsuit saying that was

0:16:570:16:59

defamation and heard her business.

0:16:590:17:00

On Tuesday, the New York judge

dismissed the President's claim that

0:17:000:17:03

he is immune from being sued

because he is, well, the president.

0:17:030:17:06

It is a heap of possible

legal headaches for

0:17:060:17:08

the president and a heap

of uncomfortable explaining to his

0:17:080:17:10

wife.

0:17:100:17:14

And with us now is Wendy

Murphy - a professor

0:17:140:17:16

at the New England School of Law.

0:17:160:17:20

Thank you for joining us. Either

legal implications for Donald Trump

0:17:200:17:26

concerning these women?

Oh yes. I do

not even know where to begin. There

0:17:260:17:37

are two lawsuits filed against him

in California. Both of them asking

0:17:370:17:42

not for money but to avoid the

contracts that they signed agreeing

0:17:420:17:50

to stay silent about their affairs

with him in exchange for money.

0:17:500:17:56

Another lawsuit, filed in New York,

is a defamation lawsuit and as we

0:17:560:18:01

just heard, the judge has allowed

the lawsuit to go forward on the

0:18:010:18:06

grounds that the president just

because he's the President, is not

0:18:060:18:10

immune from lawsuits for private

conduct. And of course the

0:18:100:18:16

defamation claim alleges private

conduct, claims that he made that

0:18:160:18:22

the woman was a liar and publicly at

a time when he was knocked President

0:18:220:18:28

of the United States, he said that

and that reference to private

0:18:280:18:32

behaviour. So he has tremendous

exposure. It remains to be seen...

0:18:320:18:37

If you are advising President Trump

at the moment, how nervous do you

0:18:370:18:40

think he should be?

I think he has

the most significant exposure with

0:18:400:18:54

regards to some laws that are not

exactly up front and centre in the

0:18:540:18:58

lawsuit and that has to do with

campaign finance laws. In the United

0:18:580:19:02

States there are very strict

campaign finance laws that control

0:19:020:19:05

the money that is spent to affect a

candidate, to affect his campaign

0:19:050:19:15

and they include money spent for

private contracts and private debts.

0:19:150:19:20

So although it has not yet become a

problem for the president in a legal

0:19:200:19:26

sense there is a concern that the

payments he made to the women to

0:19:260:19:31

keep silent were made for the

purpose of influencing his election.

0:19:310:19:37

And his defence thus far which is

why it did have not been any charges

0:19:370:19:42

yet, has come from his lawyer

Michael Cohen has said publicly

0:19:420:19:44

earlier in the year that money spent

in particular with regards to Stormy

0:19:440:19:50

Daniels, would have been spent in of

his candidacy. If that is true then

0:19:500:19:58

there will not be a campaign finance

violation problem. But the more

0:19:580:20:02

money he has spent...

I was just

going to say, for Bill Clinton it

0:20:020:20:10

was not so much to be a fair about

the lie. And here comes the problem,

0:20:100:20:14

if the special Counsel sits down

with him and if he goes down this

0:20:140:20:17

line of questioning and says did

Michael Cohen handover money for a

0:20:170:20:23

nondisclosure agreement, he has to

answer the question and in that

0:20:230:20:27

situation it is a Catch-22.

Yes and

that was going to be my second point

0:20:270:20:35

about his legal exposure that we

have not yet seen. The so-called

0:20:350:20:38

perjury trap because remember the

president has already said publicly

0:20:380:20:42

that he did not have affairs with

these women and the woman who is

0:20:420:20:49

accused him of sexual assault is

lying. So he is on record as having

0:20:490:20:53

disclaimed those reports and if he

does have to submit to a deposition

0:20:530:20:59

or answer questions in discovery,

the discovery process during any of

0:20:590:21:04

these lawsuits, he will be in a very

difficult position. And if he lies

0:21:040:21:08

under oath that is itself a crime, a

prosecutable crime. You can lie to

0:21:080:21:15

the public, that is not a crime but

you cannot lie under oath.

Thank you

0:21:150:21:21

very much for joining us.

Everyone

is saying to me here, three civil

0:21:210:21:29

lawsuits, president facing

allegations of extramarital sex,

0:21:290:21:32

sexual harassment, threatening

behaviour, if this were other

0:21:320:21:36

president, he would be in serious

trouble.

Yes and there are quite

0:21:360:21:40

right, he would be and this would be

the story that dominated every

0:21:400:21:44

headline in the country for weeks.

Just as it did with Bill Clinton.

0:21:440:21:52

But they did not elect him as a

paragon of virtue.

They knew what

0:21:520:21:55

they were getting and even

evangelicals in the country signed

0:21:550:21:58

up to what they're getting and I

think Donald Trump is counting on

0:21:580:22:02

that. They knew what they were

getting, and so people will not turn

0:22:020:22:05

against me. The issue is that Donald

Trump, his support among women and

0:22:050:22:11

particularly amongst white college

educated women, has collapsed since

0:22:110:22:15

the last election, it has slumped.

But more voted for him than Hillary

0:22:150:22:21

Clinton.

That is true but that has

reversed now and he is negative with

0:22:210:22:25

these women. If they hear the story

that he had affairs with all these

0:22:250:22:29

women and not just affairs but had

affair just after his own wife had

0:22:290:22:33

given birth to their child, I do not

know. I'm not sure how well that

0:22:330:22:38

would go down with a lot of married

women. It is sensitive timing, I do

0:22:380:22:43

not think they will like that. I

think it could be a political

0:22:430:22:47

problem for him. Some other news of

the day.

0:22:470:22:52

Boko Haram militants have

reportedly returned most

0:22:520:22:53

of the schoolgirls abducted

in northeast Nigeria in February.

0:22:530:22:56

Parents say the insurgents drove

into the town of Dapchi

0:22:560:22:58

in a convoy and dropped off at least

76 students outside the school.

0:22:580:23:01

Local media is reporting the girls

are "exhausted and underfed".

0:23:010:23:04

It's feared five of the 110 students

kidnapped may have died.

0:23:040:23:14

Members of Kosovo's opposition

party have thrown tear

0:23:140:23:16

gas canisters in parliament,

to try to stop a controversial

0:23:160:23:18

vote going ahead.

0:23:180:23:19

MPs were about to vote

on a border agreement

0:23:190:23:21

with Montenegro, which would help

Kosovo gain visa-free travel

0:23:210:23:23

to the European Union,

but the opposition party

0:23:230:23:25

is against it.

0:23:250:23:26

It's not the first time

they've used tear gas

0:23:260:23:29

in parliament to stop the vote -

other protests have lead to street

0:23:290:23:32

clashes with police.

0:23:320:23:42

Here's a question...let's just say

you made an expensive

0:23:460:23:48

purchase, charged it

to your employer and then

0:23:480:23:50

publicly blamed your wife -

how popular would you be at home?

0:23:500:23:53

Because that's exactly how Ben

Carson, the United States Secretary

0:23:530:23:56

of Housing and Urban Development,

has defended the purchase

0:23:560:23:58

of a 31,000 dollar dining

set for his office.

0:23:580:24:05

Mr Carson has said that he left it

up to his wife Candy

0:24:050:24:08

to pick out the furniture,

which includes a table,

0:24:080:24:10

chairs and sideboard.

0:24:100:24:12

Officials from Mr Carson's

department have said

0:24:120:24:16

the pre-existing table was 50 years

old, falling apart and

0:24:160:24:18

unable to be repaired.

0:24:180:24:22

I have some sympathy for him, not

for throwing his wife under the

0:24:220:24:29

proverbial bus but in my household,

I'm not actually on the acquisitions

0:24:290:24:33

committee. I am a on the budget

committee in a consultative role,

0:24:330:24:39

but it has been set in our household

when it comes to soft furnishings,

0:24:390:24:42

it is not my strong suit.

I think I

am with your wife on that.

Ben

0:24:420:24:52

Carson is not your favourite person.

I'm not popular with Ben Carson.

0:24:520:24:57

Let's take a quick trip down memory

line. The real reason women who have

0:24:570:25:03

been sexually abused and come

forward to talk about the stories is

0:25:030:25:07

precisely this, but all too often

they are accused of being liars. Are

0:25:070:25:10

you saying these are dying?

That is

your characterisation because you

0:25:100:25:16

need to characterise it that way to

try to make me the bad guy.

It is a

0:25:160:25:23

question.

Stop, stop. Can you turn

her microphone off?

I'm just going

0:25:230:25:33

to turn your microphone off!

0:25:330:25:37

This is Beyond 100

Days from the BBC.

0:25:370:25:43

Coming up for viewers

on the BBC News Channel

0:25:430:25:45

and BBC World News...

0:25:450:25:48

The European Commission has proposed

that large tech companies should pay

0:25:480:25:53

but the call of their share of tax

for the EU countries would collect

0:25:530:25:57

tax on profits generated within

their territories regardless of

0:25:570:26:01

where a company is actually

headquartered according to the new

0:26:010:26:04

plan.

0:26:040:26:04

That's still to come.

0:26:040:26:08

Over the next few days it looks like

the weather will be mostly behaving

0:26:120:26:15

in cell. There will be some rain

around but no surprises on the

0:26:150:26:20

horizon. On the short term no frost

on the way tonight for most. This

0:26:200:26:26

morning we had a frost and Thursday

morning is likely to look different.

0:26:260:26:31

You can see the clouds lifting out

of the South, a south westerly wind

0:26:310:26:36

blowing in our direction. So

remaining quite mild into Thursday.

0:26:360:26:43

Friday looks as if it is going to

cold of a little bit. -- to cool

0:26:430:26:50

off. As far as Wednesday night into

Thursday's concerned a lot of dry

0:26:500:26:54

weather. Just the chance that across

some south-western areas there could

0:26:540:27:01

be some frost out in the

countryside. That is ready much it

0:27:010:27:04

for most of us Thursday morning

temperatures hovering around five or

0:27:040:27:08

6 degrees. Potentially even 7

degrees across eastern parts of

0:27:080:27:12

Scotland. Belfast, around 4 degrees

breast thing. This is what we expect

0:27:120:27:17

to happen during the morning, the

cloud increasing across western

0:27:170:27:21

areas. We expect rain in Belfast at

the time we get to the early

0:27:210:27:28

afternoon. Some rain also in the

Western Isles. But the bulk of the

0:27:280:27:34

country should have a fine day. Hazy

skies and temperatures getting up to

0:27:340:27:40

around 12 or 13 degrees. The jet

stream keeps on moving weather

0:27:400:27:45

systems in our direction. This

illustrates what the jet stream is,

0:27:450:27:50

you have the warm and the cold side.

The cold air always to the north. We

0:27:500:27:54

will have temporarily some milder

weather on Thursday. Maybe slightly

0:27:540:27:59

cooler heading into Friday. That

shift in the wind direction coming

0:27:590:28:03

out of the North West. So maybe some

wintry showers across the hills of

0:28:030:28:07

Scotland. And single figure

temperatures. In the south in the

0:28:070:28:14

sunshine temperatures around 12

degrees. Saturday a lot of bright

0:28:140:28:17

weather, hazy across much of England

but sunshine around as well. The

0:28:170:28:24

showers continue across Scotland,

some of those wintry across the

0:28:240:28:27

hills. That is very much it. Thanks

for watching.

0:30:190:30:22

was accessed by Cambridge Analytica.

0:30:220:30:29

I think part of the challenge that

we've had with some witnesses

0:30:290:30:32

is that they've not been honest

and they've not been candid,

0:30:320:30:34

and they've played hide the ball.

Bridgen's foreign Secretary has

agreed that Russia's World Cup this

year will be like Adolf Hitler's

next half-hour.

0:30:590:31:00

The bomber who terrorised Austin,

Texas for weeks is believed to have

0:31:000:31:03

been 23-year-old Mark Anthony

Conditt.

0:31:030:31:04

Police say he detonated

a device inside his car

0:31:040:31:09

Tech companies play a 3% tax on

their turnover in the EU.

0:31:090:31:19

Officials say the measures

are to ensure digital companies

0:31:190:31:21

pay their fair share of tax.

0:31:210:31:22

To Texas now, and the man accused

of a string of deadly bomb

0:31:290:31:33

attacks in Austin is dead.

0:31:330:31:34

He was killed by one

of his own devices, detonating it

0:31:340:31:36

as police closed in on the side

of a highway.

0:31:360:31:39

He was a 23-year-old

unemployed Texan man.

0:31:390:31:40

Police don't know why

he was planting bombs

0:31:400:31:42

in parcels around Austin,

and they don't know

0:31:420:31:44

what he was doing in the 24

hours before his death.

0:31:440:31:47

They are warning there could still

be undetonated bombs out there.

0:31:470:31:51

As a precaution, all buildings

within a five block radius

0:31:510:31:53

around his home are being evacuated.

0:31:530:31:55

Here's our correspondent,

Gary O'Donoghue.

0:31:550:31:59

Police closed in on the suspected

bomber in the early hours,

0:31:590:32:01

tracking him down to a hotel

north of Austin.

0:32:010:32:07

Whilst they waited for extra

back-up, he drove off and then

0:32:070:32:10

pulled into a ditch at the sight

of the road.

0:32:100:32:15

As the police approached his car,

he set off another bomb.

0:32:150:32:21

As members of the Boston Police

Department SWAT team

0:32:210:32:23

approached the vehicle,

the suspect detonated

0:32:230:32:24

a bomb inside the vehicle.

0:32:240:32:27

Knocking one of our SWAT officers

back, and one of our SWAT officers

0:32:270:32:30

fired at the suspect as well.

0:32:300:32:34

The suspect is deceased,

and has significant injuries

0:32:340:32:36

from a blast that occurred

from detonating a bomb

0:32:360:32:38

inside his vehicle.

0:32:380:32:44

CCTV in the past couple of days

appears to show the man believed

0:32:440:32:48

to be the suspect dropping off

a package at a FedEx office

0:32:480:32:51

in Southwest Austin.

0:32:510:32:52

He has not been named officially,

but thought to be a 23-year-old

0:32:520:32:55

called Mark Anthony Conditt.

0:32:550:33:01

He lived in Pflugerville,

just outside the city.

0:33:010:33:07

A school friend of the suspect I

spoke to didn't want to be

0:33:070:33:09

identified. What she said he seemed

like a normal boy.

I would

0:33:090:33:16

definitely say that I am completely

surprised. I wouldn't have been this

0:33:160:33:19

shocked if it was somebody that I

didn't know, but seeing that this is

0:33:190:33:21

someone who I share memories with,

even though it is just a little bit,

0:33:210:33:25

is really crazy to me. I just know

that regardless of his personal

0:33:250:33:28

reasoning, it wasn't active evil and

it is not excusable -- it wasn't

0:33:280:33:32

active evil.

0:33:320:33:35

Since the beginning of the month,

there have been six separate bombs,

0:33:350:33:38

five of which had its budget.

0:33:380:33:42

Two men have died, and half a dozen

have suffered serious injuries.

0:33:420:33:45

A number are still in hospital.

0:33:450:33:46

Police do not know the motive

of this bombing spree that

0:33:460:33:50

has terrorised Austin

for the last three weeks.

0:33:500:33:52

They are also telling the public

that they don't know

0:33:520:33:57

where the suspect has been

in the last 24 hours,

0:33:570:33:59

so there could still

be devices out there.

0:33:590:34:03

Gary O'Donoghue, BBC News, Austin,

Texas.

0:34:030:34:07

After reports of Cambridge

Analytica's use of Facebook

0:34:070:34:08

user data came to light,

the DeleteFacebook hashtag

0:34:080:34:10

started to gain traction.

0:34:100:34:11

Not a huge surprise, perhaps.

0:34:110:34:13

But then Brian Acton tweeted this.

0:34:130:34:17

"It is time.

0:34:170:34:20

Hashtag delete facebook."

0:34:200:34:21

Mr Acton isn't just

any twitter user.

0:34:210:34:22

he's the co-founder of Whatsapp,

the company Facebook bought

0:34:220:34:24

in 2014 for $19 billion.

0:34:250:34:32

So if its time for him,

is it time for the rest of us?

0:34:320:34:35

Let's get the thoughts

of Paul Bernal, a lecturer

0:34:350:34:37

in Information Technology,

Intellectual Property

0:34:370:34:38

and Media Law at the University

of East Anglia School of Law.

0:34:380:34:41

Good to see you. Lots of people

asking me on to my timeline today

0:34:410:34:44

how we go about elites in our

personal information, should we want

0:34:440:34:47

to? Is it that easy?

No. Facebook

doesn't make it easy for you at all.

0:34:470:34:53

I have been campaigning for people

to consider at least leaving

0:34:530:34:56

Facebook for more than five years

because actually what has happened

0:34:560:35:00

is, it shouldn't be a surprise, if

you've been paying attention to the

0:35:000:35:03

way that Facebook's business model

works. We shouldn't think of this

0:35:030:35:08

just in terms one event of Cambridge

Analytica manipulating data. This is

0:35:080:35:14

in essence how Facebook's business

model works. It profiles. It

0:35:140:35:18

analyses. It targets had been and

try to manipulate you. Usually

0:35:180:35:22

manipulating you to buy a different

product or use a different service.

0:35:220:35:26

But actually the mechanism is the

same as for political manipulation.

0:35:260:35:31

So yes, I would say people should be

considering deleting Facebook from

0:35:310:35:33

their system. The Facebook obviously

don't like that. And they make a

0:35:330:35:38

really rather difficult. You have to

follow a series of menus. They first

0:35:380:35:43

make you Diack the faded and think

about it for another 14 days. And

0:35:430:35:46

then finally when you press delete

it takes a never mind for it to go.

0:35:460:35:52

But they do provide a mechanism.

It's not just what is on your

0:35:520:35:56

Facebook profile. I was reading

today about an Austrian privacy

0:35:560:36:00

advocate, and he made an application

to Facebook in 2011 and they have

0:36:000:36:04

records, 1200 files in fact, of all

the IP addresses of the machine CD

0:36:040:36:08

used to access the site. A full

history of messages and chats, his

0:36:080:36:13

location, even the items that he

thought he deleted were on this

0:36:130:36:15

file. So they have everything.

Yes,

they have everything. They have much

0:36:150:36:19

more than that as well. You have to

understand, they don't just have the

0:36:190:36:23

information that you put up about

yourself or the information that

0:36:230:36:27

they can mark out. For example they

keep all the information about

0:36:270:36:31

exactly which device you have used

to log onto Facebook, when, which

0:36:310:36:35

version of the software you're

using, all of that kind of stuff.

0:36:350:36:38

But they also have the information

they can derive from that. And they

0:36:380:36:42

can work out all kinds of things.

That is part of the biggest Raval

0:36:420:36:45

here. The sophistication of big data

analysis. It now means they can

0:36:450:36:51

derive all kinds of stuff about you

from the most mundane information.

0:36:510:36:54

You may think you are just answering

a few questions about which products

0:36:540:36:57

you like. They're able to derive

about your sexuality, your religion,

0:36:570:37:02

your political opinions and things

like that. You might be able to

0:37:020:37:07

delete some of that, but some of it

remains. And also other people put

0:37:070:37:10

up information about you. I don't

have a Facebook account, but my

0:37:100:37:14

relatives do.

Yeah.

So your

relatives are putting up information

0:37:140:37:19

about you. I was tempted to delete

my Facebook account when Christian

0:37:190:37:22

decided that he was not going to

accept me as a friend, which was a

0:37:220:37:26

very difficult day for me. We are

all cut it, or should.

My two

0:37:260:37:32

followers are going to miss me.

--

we are all gutted, Christine. Do you

0:37:320:37:38

think Facebook should be broken up?

Yes, I think in the end that is

0:37:380:37:42

going to be the only solution. But

it is very hard to do. It is a

0:37:420:37:45

double-edged sword here because I

want level it is the way that

0:37:450:37:50

Facebook puts everything together

that is the main attraction of it.

0:37:500:37:51

And then if you don't have it all in

one place it is not the same thing

0:37:510:37:55

at all. And we cannot forget that

Facebook is an incredibly useful

0:37:550:38:00

tool in a lot of ways for a lot of

people. So it is easy for some

0:38:000:38:04

people were in a relatively

privileged position to say yes, I

0:38:040:38:08

can delete Facebook. I didn't deal

with things in other ways. But in

0:38:080:38:12

some places it is much harder to do

that and for some people who are

0:38:120:38:15

more isolated or who run businesses,

it is much harder to do so. So what

0:38:150:38:18

we have to do is find a way to make

Facebook work without doing quite so

0:38:180:38:24

much damage to us. How we do that is

going to be very, very hard. Because

0:38:240:38:30

there are conflicting motives or

different regulators. In America for

0:38:300:38:34

example political speech is

protected. How can you stop them

0:38:340:38:38

doing political ads was backwards in

the UK, political ads are highly

0:38:380:38:42

regulated.

Must leave you there.

Thank you very much.

0:38:420:38:47

If you're worried about the security

of your information on Facebook

0:38:470:38:49

we have some advice on how

to keep it safe.

0:38:490:38:52

Just go to our website

at bbC.com/news, where technology

0:38:520:38:54

reporter, Jane Wakefiled,

outlines the steps you can take

0:38:540:38:56

to protect your data.

0:38:560:38:59

I've been looking at it today and

it's well worth the read. Go and

0:38:590:39:02

have a look at that.

I thought I was

fascinating as you have deleted

0:39:020:39:06

yours, but everybody you know who

still has you on Facebook still has

0:39:060:39:09

information about you. It is really

hard to get this out of the system.

0:39:090:39:13

Dubious election tactics aren't

the only issue tech companies

0:39:130:39:16

are dealing with right now.

0:39:160:39:17

Amazon, Google and Facebook have

been accused of shifting profits

0:39:170:39:19

around the world to take advantage

of tax havens, or low

0:39:190:39:22

tax jurisdictions.

0:39:220:39:25

In Europe, they have paid a fraction

of the profit they have earned,

0:39:250:39:28

and the EU has had enough.

0:39:280:39:30

Today the Commission outlined

plans for a digital tax.

0:39:300:39:34

In future, tax will be raised

according to where the companies'

0:39:340:39:36

users are based not where

the company is based.

0:39:360:39:38

It will take time to design such

a tax, so in the meantime the EU

0:39:380:39:42

will introduce a 3% levy on those

tech companies with global

0:39:420:39:45

revenues over $900 million.

0:39:450:39:46

The European commissioner

responsible for taxation

0:39:460:39:47

is Pierre Moscovici.

0:39:470:39:52

There's no physical presence,

so the result is that as far

0:39:520:39:54

as we know, those companies

a something like 9% on tax,

0:39:540:39:57

while the rest of space 23%,

and there is a problem of level

0:39:570:40:00

playing field, a problem

of fairness and equity there,

0:40:000:40:02

and it cannot go on that way.

0:40:020:40:11

Those companies need

to pay their fair share of tax.

0:40:110:40:19

Should say before we go to our next

topic...

0:40:190:40:22

Our Economics Editors is in Brussels

for the announcement.

0:40:220:40:25

Mark Zuckerberg who has been a wall

has just said the company has made

0:40:250:40:29

mistakes on the hemorrhaging

political situation. He is very much

0:40:290:40:33

involved incidentally in the

background to rectifying the

0:40:330:40:35

problems, but he has not made a

public appearance, but he has just

0:40:350:40:38

said we did make mistakes when he

came to Cambridge Analytica. There

0:40:380:40:41

will be a lot of people who said it

wasn't just that particular company

0:40:410:40:44

either. Let's go to Brussels. Good

to see you. The digital tracks, the

0:40:440:40:52

point that Pierre is making here is

that they are trying to protect

0:40:520:40:55

their tax base in Europe. They have

tax loss which really fitted the

0:40:550:40:59

last century.

Right. Tags was really

built from the 20th century, to tax

0:40:590:41:06

businesses in terms of where they

were physically -based, literally

0:41:060:41:09

bricks and mortar. So if a business

was headquartered in a company you

0:41:090:41:13

went and bought things from them. It

was pretty obvious what their

0:41:130:41:16

business was. When your business is

algorithms, data, intellectual

0:41:160:41:20

property, that means that taxing

those 11 more intangible assets as

0:41:200:41:26

their caught is much harder. Really

the companies like Google and

0:41:260:41:32

Facebook, they pay their taxes where

their products were invented, were

0:41:320:41:38

developed, so for those two

companies in the main in America.

0:41:380:41:42

They follow all the tax rules as

they always make clear. The European

0:41:420:41:47

commission, Pierre, has put these

details on the table today, and

0:41:470:41:51

wants to rip up those rules. As you

say, they are now looking at taxing

0:41:510:41:57

activity. So where the users

actually are, and where the

0:41:570:42:01

advertising revenue is created. This

will be a huge step change in the

0:42:010:42:07

way that businesses are taxed around

the world. Quite hard to define what

0:42:070:42:11

is a digital business as opposed to

what is a non-digital business. But

0:42:110:42:14

clearly in their sites is Google,

Facebook. And this data issue, very

0:42:140:42:20

much goes alongside in terms of

trust, this tax issue that these

0:42:200:42:27

companies have gained a huge amount

from our data, from our use of their

0:42:270:42:30

products across Europe. But as

Pierre says, they haven't paid as

0:42:300:42:38

what he describes their fair share.

It's time to build up that tax base,

0:42:380:42:42

not just the income taxpayer but you

and me who should pay the taxes, but

0:42:420:42:45

the businesses themselves.

You are a

guy who can think on his feet. I

0:42:450:42:50

know this, I have spoken to you many

times. I move for you right in

0:42:500:42:54

there. Mark Zuckerberg, part of his

statement that he has just released

0:42:540:42:57

he says that the most important

actions to prevent this from

0:42:570:42:59

happening again today, we have

already taken years ago. That is

0:42:590:43:04

Mark Zuckerberg releasing a

statement just a few minutes ago.

0:43:040:43:07

You study businesses your whole

career. You know the key thing in

0:43:070:43:11

this kind of thing is to handle a

crisis well, to get the

0:43:110:43:14

communications right. Does Mark

Zuckerberg putting up a statement

0:43:140:43:17

now help Facebook get this problem?

Certainly will help. It is

0:43:170:43:23

interesting, interviewed Mark

Zuckerberg this time last year. When

0:43:230:43:27

he bought out if your member that

big manifesto, heal the world

0:43:270:43:31

manifesto, he wanted to go around

all the states of America to have

0:43:310:43:34

these discussions with people. I

think for Facebook, for Google, for

0:43:340:43:39

all the companies they found it very

difficult to handle their huge

0:43:390:43:45

growth. Facebook is a company

younger than my 14-year-old son.

0:43:450:43:51

That is the astonishing phenomenon

we are talking about. They are sort

0:43:510:43:54

of rising the rule book themselves

as they go along. Governments and

0:43:540:44:00

religious have really found it

difficult to keep up with these

0:44:000:44:05

companies in or miss growth and the

change in the way we communicate and

0:44:050:44:09

in the information we see. It

certainly is a help that Mark

0:44:090:44:13

Zuckerberg is coming out today,

tonight in California and saying,

0:44:130:44:18

"Yes, mistakes have been made, we

have tried to act." But there is a

0:44:180:44:22

faith here and companies like

Zuckerberg. In companies like

0:44:220:44:26

Facebook. That the community in the

end will get to the right

0:44:260:44:29

conclusion. Frankly governments and

regulators say that is too slow. It

0:44:290:44:34

can no longer be left to you to

decide what the rule book is. We are

0:44:340:44:38

going to try and take control of

this. Not just on data, but on tax

0:44:380:44:42

as well. These are the big two toxic

issues. Many critics would say

0:44:420:44:47

Zuckerberg, Google, Amazon, all the

other big global digital layers,

0:44:470:44:53

simply being too slow to understand

that yes they bought a lot of good

0:44:530:44:58

to be world, but they haven't done

enough to control their behaviour.

0:44:580:45:03

You see, I knew I could throw you in

it. I knew you would be able to

0:45:030:45:06

handle that just fine. You hadn't

heard the statement, but you are you

0:45:060:45:10

so much for joining us.

0:45:100:45:14

Let's see if that enough. Going back

to the digital tax. I will be in

0:45:140:45:19

Brussels tomorrow for the programme

for the European Council meeting.

0:45:190:45:23

Apparently he's been talking to

Steve Manu gene and the Treasury

0:45:230:45:26

Secretary over there because they

are concerned that when they start

0:45:260:45:30

talking about taxing tech companies

they are talking about taxing

0:45:300:45:33

American companies. And they are

very concerned that this will be

0:45:330:45:36

seen as a tit-for-tat after the

steel and aluminium tax which they

0:45:360:45:39

will discuss tomorrow. We get into a

bit of that. This will he seemed as

0:45:390:45:42

them trying the bows in the

direction of Washington.

You're

0:45:420:45:47

right, something American companies

by the way make a point of telling

0:45:470:45:50

us a lot.

0:45:500:45:55

Federal Reserve bank has just handed

down it's decision to raise interest

0:45:550:46:01

rates by 0.25%, the first

raise of the year.

0:46:010:46:04

That decision will increase

the cost of borrowing money

0:46:040:46:06

for people around the world.

0:46:060:46:07

It was announced by Jerome Powell,

the Federal Reserve's new chairman.

0:46:070:46:10

Our correspondent Kim

Gittleson is at the Federal

0:46:100:46:11

Reserve in Washington.

0:46:110:46:15

The Federal Reserve has been moving

in this direction for a while. They

0:46:150:46:18

clearly feel the American economy is

doing better. Just to run power have

0:46:180:46:22

a concern that if he raises interest

rate they put a damper on the

0:46:220:46:26

economy?

Central bankers don't like

any surprises. This move has been

0:46:260:46:29

telegraphed for sometime now.

Investors knew they be raising

0:46:290:46:32

interest rates. Most of the work

thing attention to the Fed

0:46:320:46:36

projections to figure out if they

were raising interest rates three

0:46:360:46:39

times or four times this year. The

media and the press conference

0:46:390:46:44

Pastor Mr Powell was questions.

Frankly the Fred was quite split.

0:46:440:46:49

Eight members in favour of three

increases this year. Seven in favour

0:46:490:46:54

for increases. Mr Powell would not

answer questions, saying that that

0:46:540:46:57

was showing the array range of

opinions and investors should be

0:46:570:47:00

paying attention to economic

fundamentals and that will give them

0:47:000:47:03

guidance about what the Fed is going

to do into the future.

Three or four

0:47:030:47:06

times this year. It makes a

difference.

0:47:060:47:08

Thank you very much for coming.

Sounds arcane, but that can have a

0:47:080:47:12

huge impact on the global economy.

Great to have him with us. This is

0:47:120:47:16

Beyond 100 Days and still to come.

0:47:160:47:24

Still to come, a spring snow storm

has hit the north east of America

0:47:240:47:26

and I've been out in the blizzard,

I'll show you some of the scenes

0:47:260:47:30

right here in Washington.

0:47:300:47:32

More than a million NHS workers

in England can expect pay rises

0:47:320:47:34

if they agree to a deal struck

between most unions and ministers.

0:47:340:47:38

It follows a pay cap imposed

for the last five years

0:47:380:47:41

and a pay freeze before that.

0:47:410:47:44

Our political editor

Laura Kuenssberg reports.

0:47:440:47:46

Porters.

0:47:460:47:49

Paramedics.

0:47:490:47:53

Nurses, who care for

millions of patients.

0:47:530:47:55

The staff who keep the NHS going are

finally to have a bigger pay rise.

0:47:550:48:05

THEY CHANT: Scrap the cap!

0:48:090:48:11

For five years, there have been

calls to do just that.

0:48:110:48:13

Aside from some automatic rises,

the limit on public-sector pay

0:48:130:48:16

increases of 1% meant

wages fell behind.

0:48:160:48:17

The Secretary of State

for Health and Social Care,

0:48:170:48:20

Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

0:48:200:48:21

And the election left the Tories

in no doubt about the irritation.

0:48:210:48:23

So...

0:48:240:48:25

Today's agreement on a new pay deal

reflects public appreciation

0:48:250:48:27

for just how much they have done

and continue to do.

0:48:270:48:37

Rarely has a pay raise been

so well-deserved for NHS staff,

0:48:390:48:42

who have never worked harder.

0:48:420:48:43

When a nurse pleaded

with the Prime Minister for a pay

0:48:430:48:46

rise on national television,

she was told there was

0:48:460:48:48

no magic money tree.

0:48:480:48:57

So, can he tell us how this pay

rise will be paid for?

0:48:570:49:00

Has the Prime Minister's

horticultural skills grown

0:49:000:49:02

said magic money tree?

0:49:020:49:03

Taxpayers' money for the rises

will come from the Treasury to start

0:49:030:49:06

with, not out of existing health

budgets, so the big

0:49:060:49:08

unions are on board.

0:49:080:49:14

But staff still have

to approve the deal.

0:49:140:49:16

And with inflation, it might not

make up the difference.

0:49:160:49:19

Perhaps for NHS staff in England,

these rises can't come fast enough.

0:49:190:49:21

Remember, limits on pay have been

in place for years -

0:49:210:49:24

part of the Conservatives' efforts

to balance the nation's books.

0:49:240:49:28

But public money

will still be tight.

0:49:280:49:29

This is an easing of

a squeeze, not the end.

0:49:290:49:39

If you are just joining us we have

had in the last minute or so a

0:49:410:49:45

statement from Mark Zuckerberg, the

CEO of Facebook. Just going through

0:49:450:49:48

the statement because it is a long

posting to put on the Facebook

0:49:480:49:52

website. Let me pick up the things

that he is saying about past

0:49:520:49:58

problems, he says "We will

investigate all apps better access

0:49:580:50:00

to large amounts of information

before we change our platform to

0:50:000:50:03

dramatically reduce data access in

2014, and will conduct a full audit

0:50:030:50:07

of any app with suspicious activity"

and he goes on to say that they are

0:50:070:50:11

on to get in touch with anybody who

lost their data or if data was

0:50:110:50:14

passed onto third party apps. They

will be informed.

We put this on the

0:50:140:50:21

screen earlier but unless you heard,

eyesight is a lot better. It is very

0:50:210:50:27

long. On his Facebook page. He says

that they have dealt with problems

0:50:270:50:31

already. That were the kinds of

problems that led to the Cambridge

0:50:310:50:37

Analytica getting hold of the

Facebook data for millions of users.

0:50:370:50:41

The question is going to be for

Facebook, is this going to do my.

0:50:410:50:45

Slide share price. As said earlier

on the programme this is about trust

0:50:450:50:51

and actually whether people will

have enough trust in the system.

OK,

0:50:510:50:56

now...

0:50:560:50:57

Political aides play a crucial role

in the smooth running of government.

0:50:570:51:00

And so it makes perfect sense that

Downing Street is offering

0:51:000:51:03

lessons in spinning,

no, not the exercise classes,

0:51:030:51:05

we're talking about good PR.

0:51:050:51:08

A document leaked from within

government reveals one of these

0:51:080:51:10

first training sessions will be

titled "Working With Number ten".

0:51:100:51:13

Advising politicians how to avoid

the pitfalls is crucial.

0:51:130:51:23

Though not so easy in

the case of Donald Trump.

0:51:320:51:34

Yesterday ahead of his call

with Vladimir Putin,

0:51:340:51:36

aides had written on his security

briefing: "do NOT CONGRATULATE".

0:51:360:51:38

Not only did he praise Mr Putin

he also forgot to mention

0:51:380:51:42

the poisoning in Salisbury.

0:51:420:51:42

Here to help us make sense

of it all, is the Times

0:51:420:51:45

columnist Matt Chorley.

0:51:450:51:46

Picked this up this morning and

written about it. Why is it

0:51:460:51:49

happening now? They have been in

power for two years, the main

0:51:490:51:51

government. It seems they are going

back all the way to induction

0:51:510:51:53

classes.

They are, circulating

photos of each other. So they can

0:51:530:51:56

all learn each other's names. First

day of school. What is the reason my

0:51:560:52:00

coming you could say the Tories have

been in government for eight years.

0:52:000:52:03

Part of it is because it has pink

like a queer out. There was a big

0:52:030:52:07

clear out when David Cameron left

and Theresa May came in. Another

0:52:070:52:09

part of the disastrous election in

June last year. Actually the

0:52:090:52:15

collective knowledge that you would

normally get in a government has

0:52:150:52:18

evaporated and many ways. Quite a

lot of people now in government who

0:52:180:52:23

didn't come up through opposition

and having been around the corridors

0:52:230:52:26

of power for that long. Don't really

know how it works. How does the

0:52:260:52:30

government department work. The

trouble is one you put something

0:52:300:52:33

down about in school, somebody that

makes it to people like me which

0:52:330:52:41

makes the first rule of spads school

is that you probably shouldn't be...

0:52:410:52:47

Talking about spads school!

Let's

say you are giving the goals and

0:52:470:52:52

opportunity of working as an aid in

the White House. How would you

0:52:520:52:55

manage this president?

Golden

opportunity? I think...

Like Marco

0:52:550:53:01

Tucker.

The problem is, we have got

this with Jeremy Corbyn in the UK as

0:53:010:53:08

well. This problem of politicians

who are beyond spin and control and

0:53:080:53:10

the conventional rules of, this is

how we got about which is why people

0:53:100:53:17

love them. When you got a president

who's got all these briefings and

0:53:170:53:23

ignores them, does his own thing.

Bridgen on a block capitals, do not

0:53:230:53:26

congratulate him, there is a risk

that the only thing he remembers is

0:53:260:53:30

the word congratulate. No amount of

spin or minds to take or briefings

0:53:300:53:39

or PR experts laying down a plane

can compete with a president who has

0:53:390:53:44

got Twitter close to hand back and

just basically say all those plans

0:53:440:53:49

are coming out. Maybe it is not even

worth bothering.

I would love to be

0:53:490:53:52

a fly on the wall at spads school.

See what they did.

Naturally. Thank

0:53:520:53:59

you very much for joining us. That

was great. Managing Donald Trump,

0:53:590:54:04

who would take on that task.

0:54:040:54:06

You've been talking a lot about how

the weather has been terrible in

0:54:060:54:09

Britain recently.

0:54:090:54:11

Luckily here, it is March. And that

always means it is very nice. So I

0:54:110:54:16

went outside to take a look at what

it is really like.

0:54:160:54:20

So, Christian, it's the second day

of spring in Washington.

0:54:200:54:22

Always my favourite time of year.

0:54:220:54:24

I spent the weekend getting my

garden ready to plant pansies.

0:54:240:54:28

I put my sweaters away.

0:54:280:54:29

Soon there'll be the cherry

blossoms, really excited about that.

0:54:290:54:31

The only problem, mother

nature doesn't seem

0:54:310:54:33

to have got the message.

0:54:330:54:35

Look, it is snowing in Washington.

0:54:350:54:42

We've been out in

a blizzard all day.

0:54:420:54:44

The federal government is shut.

0:54:440:54:45

My kids don't have school.

0:54:450:54:46

This is not spring.

0:54:460:54:47

I think it's still winter.

0:54:470:54:49

They called it this morning. I was

watching one of the American

0:54:490:54:51

networks. They called it The Great

Slop because there is lots of it,

0:54:510:54:59

but it is not speaking. It is

slushy.

Every weather storm has to

0:54:590:55:03

have a name I now. The one I heard

in Washington that this was called

0:55:030:55:06

storm Daniels.

Excellent.

Get it?

I

get it. Yeah. Shall I show you a

0:55:060:55:15

picture of the Pope just before we

go.

Go on.

It's been windy at

0:55:150:55:20

Vatican City today. Someone has got

fish wire on the top. Lid off. I

0:55:200:55:27

feel a bit sorry for the Pope

because he keeps having these were

0:55:270:55:31

drug crises. There you go, just over

the back of the chair. As he keeps

0:55:310:55:36

having these wardrobe crises. This

happens quite a bit. There is a bit

0:55:360:55:42

of elastic around the top.

You do

realise no one is listening to you.

0:55:420:55:46

I mean, like, nobody.

All we are

watching is the picture. Can we put

0:55:460:55:56

that on loop? Can we go out on the

Pope with his hat right off one

0:55:560:56:00

Lukas because no one actually wants

to listen to anything else.

He is a

0:56:000:56:02

good sport.

0:56:020:56:04
