I would like there to be some kind of high earnings cap, quite


honestly. You could set a limit on top pay. I think it is probably


better to look at the ratio issue. Jeremy Corbyn started the day with a


surprising new policy, and this afternoon, it was dead in the water.


This was not even the topic of his big relaunch of which was meant to


be about freedom of movement. We will ask one of his closest


lieutenants what he actually means. Also tonight:


Jared is a very successful real estate person, but I actually think


he likes politics more than he likes real estate.


So it seems. Meet 36-year-old Jared Kushner, Donald Trump's son-in-law


and confident, soon to be top White House adviser. Who is he bring to


bear. And remember this? Governor Tarkin, I should have


expected to find you Peter Cushing and Carrie Fisher are


no longer with us, but that is no obstacle to being a major character


in a new Star Wars movie. Will Carrie Fisher now also get digitally


resurrected, and would she really want that?

The Labour leadership is invoking a new strategy to engage with voters


and as part of that they hope to emulate some of


Here's our political editor Nick Watt.


The world is turning its attention to America, and who would have


believed that? Jeremy Corbyn, who has spent a lifetime campaigning


against US dominance, believes there are lessons for him in Donald


Trump's victory. Today we saw Jeremy Corbyn's first outing of the New


Year. There was a change of tack on Europe as he said he is no longer


wedded to the crew movement of people, then intriguingly, Labour


indicated that he may follow some of Donald Trump's tactics in reaching


out directly to voters as an insurgent. Jeremy Corbyn is not


exactly America's number one fan. It seems highly unlikely we will see


him here any time soon, and he profoundly disagrees with Donald


Trump's outpourings on Twitter, but he does believe that the incoming


president has captured ways of communicating on social media that


are highly effective for an insurgent. Newsnight understands


that having seen off that second leadership challenge, Jeremy Corbyn


now believes the time has come to rekindle that spirit as an


antiestablishment candidate on social media. To my mind, Mr Trump


is a racist, and a misogynist, and a pretty bad thing in the world, but I


am smart enough to know that he has spoken to a lot of people very


directly, and he has spoken to their concerns. He's offered the wrong


recipe, and he's played on those concerns. I want to listen to those


concerns, as does Jeremy Corbyn, but sell a different message. He is


certainly the man for us, because he appears on the sofa...


The leadership has decided that Jeremy Corbyn should devote less


time to the written press and more time to live interviews on


television and radio. They admit it can't go wrong but say that live


broadcasting allows leaders to speak more directly to voters. And then


there are the Donald Trump lessons from twitter. Expect a modern


version of Labour's rebuttal unit. One politician who blazed a trail


for leaders speaking directly to voters has mixed feelings. I don't


think I've got any lessons to teach anyone. My strategy didn't exactly


culminate in success in elections. I have some sympathy, of course I do,


given the powerful vested interests we've got in the written press in


this country, there's a need, unhinged stuff that you get from


Paul Dacre run the Daily Mail and elsewhere, the bully boy tactics of


those papers, and I understand that Jeremy Corbyn and his team want to


communicate with people that clearly they are not going to the pages of


the... Mail and other parts of the Brexit press. Jeremy Corbyn may be


looking to the US for inspiration on how to reach out to voters, but in


common with all UK political leaders, his fortunes will be bound


up with how the UK negotiates it way out of the EU. Today, in the


strongly pro-leave city of Peterborough, he said he was no


longer wedded to the principle of free movement. Allies said this


marked a shift in language and a recognition that Brexit does provide


an opportunity for wider reform of the labour market by cracking down


on agencies that have used migrant labour to drive down wages. The more


I get the impression that the differences now between Theresa May


and the principal party of opposition, the Labour Party, is


basically one of nuance and detail rather than substance. They both say


that there have to be unspecified reforms to freedom of movement, and


that worries me because unless the Labour Party is prepared to hold the


Government's feet to the fire, this Government, I worry, is going to bok


choi Brexit very badly. A former member of the Shadow Cabinet


believes that Jeremy Corbyn is on the right track but does not go far


enough. I welcome a commitment to managed migration but I think we


need more detail on how that will work in practice. I think that one


of the main messages from the EU referendum back in June was that the


status quo on immigration and free movement cannot continue, and people


want the Government to have more control of the numbers of people


coming in. In common with the finest of start-ups, today's strategy had a


bit of a bumpy start. Jeremy Corbyn appeared to suggest early on that he


favoured a cap on maximum pay rates. By this afternoon, the position was


a little more nuanced as he suggested the Government could use


its leverage in public sector contracts to force private companies


to accept pay ratios, and the tax system could be used to change


behaviour more widely. Jeremy Corbyn is unlikely to be picking fights


with Hollywood stars. The moment, his mind will be on a windswept


corner of Cumbria where Labour faces a tough by-election fight. Today's


message on Brexit was no doubt aimed at Copeland and other labour streets


which recorded a strong Leave vote. Caroline Flint was a shadow


minister under Ed Miliband. You and other senior colleagues


wanted a specific policy on freedom of movement. What did you want to


hear today? I take a lot of positives from what Jeremy said


today. After the referendum, he said the Labour Party needed to review


immigration policy, and I think he did make clear today that as part of


the discussions around the deal around Brexit, then looking at what


a fair and reasonable set of rules around freedom of movement would


mean to the discussion. But you were looking for something more specific,


and he only said he was not wedded to the idea. Let me see what I was


looking for. I believe that freedom of movement is something we should


have addressed a long time ago, and Labour has sidestepped people's


concerns on immigration, particularly in communities outside


the big cities, outside of London. Jeremy has said, and it is backed up


by Kia Starmer and the deputy leader, that is part of the


negotiations around Brexit, of course we want full access to the


single market as much as possible, but freedom of movement has to be


part of that. Add to that, I think something like 50% of those who


voted Remain also wanted reform of free movement as well. But you and


others of your ilk want to see a two tier position. You want to see one


strategy for senior skilled foe, and another strategy for others. You are


rather long way from getting that. We have the start of a discussion


today. Certainly, I think we need to look and probed more into the detail


about how EU migration has affected Britain. When I did a survey online


in my own constituency, where they voted overwhelmingly to leave, when


I asked what they thought of students or highly skilled workers,


they were less worried about that then the impact on low skill,


low-paid sectors and areas such as Doncaster. New Labour was much less


concerned about ordinary voters' concerns than growing the economy.


They ignored it and turned a deaf ear to that, and that was a mistake,


not just economically but culturally. It is not just about


economic spot the social atmosphere. In my own constituency in the Don


Valley, in 1997, it was over 90% white. The non-British vote has


increased since then. It is a big change in communities. I wonder if


people feel that the message from new Labour was that even two boys


that was racist. I think part of the problem was that there were


mistakes, and it has been acknowledged that we did not have


transition controls in the way we have over Romania and Bulgaria.


Across all parties, politicians tend to look at the net figures


nationally without bearing down on what is happening in different


communities, and I do think that is where not just around immigration


but around globalisation, the loss of jobs, on the big scale,


particularly when the economy was doing well before the recession, it


could mask these problems. The thing you are acknowledging is that even a


small population change can mean a big social shift. And the rate of it


as well. Actually, it is a problem for people even to discuss it. You


would not have the Labour leadership saying it was a problem, would you?


Jeremy did address some of the problems, in his own words, which


might be different from my words. That's OK. He did address the fact


that some employers have used loopholes through freedom of


movement to basically... That's economic, not culturally. -- not


cultural. It overlaps. When you add in zero-hours contracts and young


people can't put together the money for a deposit on a flat to rent, and


when people are feeling that wholesale recruitment through an


agency to a town in Poland has come into their local factory, it's not


only hitting them in the pocket but in their hearts as well. Thank you


very much indeed. We're joined by the Shadow Attorney


General Baroness Chakrabarti. First of all, can you explain


Labour's policy on freedom of movement as discussed today? Can you


explain what it actually is. I will do my best. The priority is the


economy, and we think that at this moment in their negotiations that


will come, the priority is trying to get access to the single market. We


don't have an ideological position that's for or against immigration,


the priority is the economy, but as Caroline said, the economy has to


wipe everyone, those at the top and at the bottom. When you are talking


about the impact on the economy, you have to take care of business, yes,


that wants to have free movement, but you also need to think about


people whose wages are being undercut, about housing, public


services and so on. If it was necessary for the economy to have


more immigration rather than less, you would favour that? Yes, but only


do if you do the corresponding thing, to make sure that migrant


labour cannot be exploited and that people's wages are not undercut and


that you do all the things to ameliorate the impact on people


lower down the economic scale so that free movement isn't something


that is just benefiting people at the top but not benefiting people at


the bottom who feel that migrant labour is being exploited, that they


don't have homes and access to schools and hospitals and so on. The


economy has to work for everyone, which is why the stuff about wages


fits completely in with this policy. It can't just be about Brexit but


about what kind of country we want to have afterwards. But we are not


necessarily just talking about low wages paid to workers coming in, for


example, seasonal workers. We are talking not just about that but


about the impact of low skilled workers coming into the UK, where


there is a glut of low skilled workers, and what you are not saying


is that, actually, there will be a two tier system, which Caroline


Flint wants, which takes high skilled workers and then if


necessary low skilled workers. Jeremy Corbyn is simply saying he


wants to get rid of the undercutting of wages. That is not a


comprehensive policy on free movement.


We cannot have a comprehensive policy on free movement because we


are not currently sitting at the negotiating table. I think there has


to be negotiation and the government has no plans whatsoever. What is


clear is that the Labour Party will put the economy first but the


economy must work not just for those at the top but every level. You are


facing a by-election in Cumbria and in that by-election it will be a


hard fight. Voters voted to leave. Do you think that what Jeremy Corbyn


said today would reassure people who are natural Labour voters. People in


that constituency are worried about the state of the hospital, they are


worried about the future for their children and families. They're not


anti immigration in some abstract way, they are not racist or


xenophobic. They want to be part of an economy that works for everyone.


They might want fewer immigrants in their community for the same reasons


that Caroline Flint was talking about, you either want to raise the


question of racism. I'm saying most people I have ever met in the UK


regardless of their position on Brexit, are not anti-immigration in


abstract way, what they want is an economy and society that works for


everyone. What that means is that immigration has got to serve the


economy but the economy has to be something we can all share in. So


you do not allow the exploitation of migrant workers, you provide housing


for everyone, health care for everyone. I'm keen to stick to this


point, what Caroline was saying was that there may be an influx of


migration in a big city but in other areas even a small shift can make a


massive cultural difference. Do you accept that for some people that


cultural change, that change in their whole world is something that


is important to them and they're worried about being marked out as


racist if they even raise it. I do not think it is racist to be


concerned about the impact of immigration. I think that a lot of


people fear the other when the other is not even in their neighbourhood


but when there is an impact, it is the duty of government to provide


the public services, the housing, and to avoid the undercutting of


wages and that is the way to create an economy that works for everyone.


Let's move on to Jeremy Corbyn and his pronouncement this morning that


there was to be a wage cap. He talks about footballers earning millions


and bankers and so forth. Did you know he was going to say that?


Jeremy has been talking about inequality and general and wage


inequality in particular probably all of his life. Did you know that


he was going to announce this morning that he was in favour of a


cap. I think he was completely authentic. But not this afternoon


because he had to change that policy by then. That is not my reading of


it and you have asked me for my reading of it is not the BBC reading


of it. I am saying only that it was a major day for labour today, they


work to be setting up their stall on free movement of people mainly but


this was him rebooting for the New Year and it begins with a policy


that I understand no one in the Shadow Cabinet knew was going to


happen. That he was in favour of a cap on high pay and that was then


reversed this afternoon to be a nuance on a question of ratio. That


is not my reading of it. When you want to deal with wage inequality,


you have to deal with in it in different sectors and using


different tools. Footballers? In the public sector you could say we're


going to cap public sector pay at the top. We have a ratio system. In


the private sector you could look at things like tax incentives and the


ratio between people at the top and bottom of a company. The big


picture... Danny Blanchflower said it was a lunatic idea. But by the


afternoon Jeremy Corbyn has announced something completely


different, perhaps tweaking the tax system and an extension of the


ratios. There are different ways to approach wage inequality in


different sectors but what is clear and authentic is that Jeremy is for


a more equal Britain and many people are with him on that. During the day


today when Jeremy Corbyn was talking in Peterborough about free movement


and wage caps, his campaign director was messaging about the prices in


the health service. It is extraordinary that he was sending


messages about that on twitter, rather than addressing that huge


crisis today, he was saying one thing and his campaign director was


saying another. It was the perfect opportunity to take on the NHS


question head-on. That is about spin. It is about substance. I do


not think so, we have been doing a great job on the health service. The


Shadow Health Secretary... This was a major speech. You are saying that


Jeremy cannot talk about health care and inequality and Brexit.


Unfortunately this country is in such a pickle at the moment that it


is is responsibility to speak about all of these things. Do you think it


went well today for the ideal positive that Jeremy has spoken


authentically and spoken from his heart, directly to people and the


biggest criticism that you can put to me is that it seemed a bit too


unspun. We have an NHS crisis, criticism of the government Brexit


strategy, Labour 27% rating. You're not very well because perhaps days


like this happen and you appear to be going off cack handedly. You talk


about spin by Jeremy spoke from the heart about values and vision and I


think given the chance, he will speak directly to his audience and


that will go well. And that would be twitter. That would be twitter. It


is going to be more than twitter but we do have to speak more directly to


people, no question about that. The question of wage inequality, there


has been some developments and Chris Cook is here. Something came out


from the ONS today, slightly poorly timed because it suggests that there


has been quite good news on wage inequality. We have this graph


showing the coefficient, the propensity of inequality for the


population. What were drawn at the moment, these three major elections.


What we can see is this gigantic surge in inequality under the


Thatcher government, a slow retreat under Labour and then continued


retreat recently. Basically since 2007 there has been ?1600 increase


in the wages at the bottom fifth and ?1000 so for wages of the top. So


actually inequality has been shifting since the financial crisis.


And Jeremy Corbyn has been speaking about this a lot so presumably you


would give credit to the Conservative government, since 2010,


for bringing this inequality down. The figures you describe, forgive me


they are a drop in the ocean. For people who cannot afford the rail


hike, who cannot leave home in their 20s and buy a home, in real terms


inequality is a gaping chasm in the country and ?1000 at the top just is


not going to cut it. Thank you both. Donald Trump's son-in-law and close


confidante Jared Kushner Yesterday his father in law gave


the multi millionaire an early birthday present


when he appointed him as a senior White House advisor -


a reward perhaps for his tireless Kushner is a property developer


and a newspaper owner,it is not yet clear whether he will have to divest


himself of all his interests to take up the apparently unpaid


hugely influential role. What's even less clear


is Jared Kushner's politics. Here's our Diplomatic


Editor Mark Urban. Some of the new Jersey property


baron, Jared Kushner had a privileged upbringing. His path from


Harvard in the family firm looked like plain sailing. Until 2005, when


his father Charlie was convicted of tax evasion and witness tampering. I


was there, Charlie was a well-respected member of his family


and community. It was a terrible blow to the family. Jared as the


second oldest child, it was hard for him and for his sisters and brother.


The Kushner conviction sprang from vicious political and family


rivalries. Mr Krishna engaged in a conspiracy. Some have claimed that


this battle left Jared Kushner with a strong desire for revenge. There's


definitely a psychological drama at play, a lot of people spoke about


Kushner wanting revenge early in this election season. Now Chris


Christie is nowhere in the picture when it comes to the Trump


administration. In these cases, often there is at least a glimmer or


grain of truth to these stories. We have seen both in Trump and Kushner


a desire to get even. Hungry yet, or do we start another day. The life of


Jared Kushner with turns of fortune feels a little like a 19th-century


novel. It has been reported that his favourite book is indeed the Count


of Monte Cristo. A saga of how unjust imprisonment leads the hero


to amass a fortune and he spent a lifetime seeking revenge. Certainly


his alliance through marriage with the Trump family has now brought him


to the apex of political power. Jared is a very successful real


estate agent but I think he likes politics more than real estate. He


is very good at politics. Notoriously reluctant to give


interviews, Kushner, who is Jewish, took to the pages of a newspaper he


owns to desert -- to defend Trump against a charge of anti-Semitism


during a campaign. One of the people you see behind you in the newsroom


is Danish wards who broke the story for us and it shows you what I mean


about a publisher who does not, is not heavy-handed. She wrote a piece


questioning why Donald Trump, are clearly anti-Semitic element, come


to support him. And Jared answered, no candidate can be held responsible


for every one of their millions of supporters. But I know this guy and


there is not a racist or anti-Semitic bone in his body. When


Trump to the White House, his son-in-law was also there. Kushner


was credited with designing a winning campaign on a shoestring and


has knowledge of how Washington actually works is slight. Perhaps


he's a very able person but we have no track record to judge that. He


has no experience and he is coming this position by his family network


and so he has got to prove himself. But it is not for nothing that there


are anti-nepotism laws and it is not just this one relative, there are


always relatives that Trump is putting into power very close to


power, without appropriate Chinese walls. So it is a problem. If Jared


Kushner has a tendency for extremism it is in the matter of family


loyalty and that is what has made him indispensable to Donald Trump.


As for his actual politics, he has exhibited what Henry Kissinger has


characterised as a considerable degree of constructive ambiguity.


Jared is that there are guy and listens to a lot of people and is


willing to be persuaded but ultimately he is quite decisive. The


Observer I think is the only newspaper in the country for example


that endorsed both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in their respective


primaries. That shows not only the ideological diversity but that we


pick winners. Not forgetting the Count of Monte Cristo. After the


Trump victory, Chris Christie, the man expected to organise the new


administration, but who had gloated when the father of Jared Kushner was


convicted, was fired. Is it my turn? It is. When it comes to the new


White House and the influence on Trump, many in high hopes on his


special adviser, just 35 years old. Many people in Washington and New


York found some comfort that Jared Kushner was going to be in the ear


of Donald Trump before big decisions are made. So much of what Trump said


on the campaign trail was so toxic and frightening and yet can see is


someone who is soft-spoken, he is moderate, in some ways he is a


progressive. And off some of the hard edges of Donald Trump. In the


dwindling days of the Obama presidency, many in Washington are


anxious. The President-elect could not be more different in style and


one reason why they now pin their hopes on those around Trump.

So, will she be brought back to life for the final instalment


We're joined by Tim Webber, who is the chief creative


officer at Framestore - the Bafta and Oscar-awarding winning


visual effects studio, and Anna Smith, the president


Good evening to you both. Anna, first of all, argue squeamish --


argue squeamish about keeping actors alive for commercial gain? Yes,


especially in that advert with Audrey Hepburn, it feels slightly


queasy and strange to see them recreated, albeit brilliantly. It is


too uncanny. If an actor sadly dies in the middle of making a film they


have already consented to being, it would be their wish to continue with


that, but to completely recreate them is another matter. I wonder


what you would say to that, because Framestore is one of the companies


that can do this stuff, but it is no longer a performance by an actor. It


is still a performance by an actor, but that will be a different one. It


is a recreated actor. I look at it as essentially digital make-up. It


is another actor, not Peter Cushing, but he is wearing digital make-up.


That is different to people dressing up when they are giving performances


as the Queen or as... But they are alive. Or as Winston Churchill.


People wear make up and try and become other people will stop it is


part of acting. If it was the case that the whole Indiana Jones


franchise were rebooted in 20 years, and people thought, we have to have


Harrison Ford in this role, you would have no qualms about that? I


would have qualms. It is a nuanced thing to do and it depends on fire


you are doing it and how you do it. But I also think it's not really up


to us to judge whether that should happen or not. I think it is hard to


know who can judge when someone is dead, but the estate of the person,


I think, are probably the best people to make the call. Anna. Is


the estate the best person? Only the actor can judge. The performances


are so nuanced and a lot of it is about empathy. You think about the


great performances of our time, and often they are whimsical and cannot


be recreated easily. I heard that Carrie Fisher altered her Star Wars


scripts - that obviously can't happen if she is going to be, as it


were, recreated for the last one in the franchise. It won't be the


Carrie Fisher, the personality of Carrie Fisher. Absolutely. I can see


the conundrum. If I were them, I would find a smaller role so that if


there is a CGI Carrie Fisher, at least it is not a huge role. Is


there an issue in this precarious profession that keeping going with


the whole lot is actually rather uncreative, when you think of the


new lot coming through. That certainly is a danger, and I think


the film industry has a tendency to be uncreative and to stick to


proving things from the past. -- things that are proven. A film star


is far more than just a visit, it is the performance. That will not be


Peter Cushing's performance. It might be a fine performance by a


contemporary actor, but it is not Peter Cushing. By a doppelganger.


The actor who was anonymous, because he does not get credit for his


performance, is digitally enhanced himself, or herself, and then


elements of Peter Cushing's face are recreated? That's correct.


Essentially, they are made to look like Peter Cushing, which also does


involvement appellation of the performance, to a small extent, just


little ticks have to feel like they are Peter Cushing. It is complex. Do


you think it alters the audience responds when they know what they


are watching is something that is incredibly skilfully done, and they


might be taken up more by seeing how good the technology is than by


having an emotional connection with the character? When an actor is


deceased, you cannot help but be aware when they are so famous. It


takes the audience out of it. A lot of people said about the last Star


Wars film that it gave them a joke. It takes them out of the story a


bit. It makes it more like animate something, less like a naturalistic


human performance. It must. It certainly can be distracting, and I


think it is important to use it in the right way at the right time. It


can be distracting, but I don't think it need necessarily be less


like a human performance. That depends on the scale and techniques


that are used to create it. And I don't think we are there get. I have


looked at that Peter Cushing performance, and I look that you're


making of the Peter Cushing, and of course, I'm looking for everything


to think about whether or not it is the real person. It is very hard to


recreate a human. It is incredibly hard. It wasn't as who may Peter


Cushing. I don't think the skills have got to the point where it is


absolutely believable as a human being yet. Would you like to see


Carrie Fisher in the last of the franchise? I would, but not too much


because it would be distracting. I agree that a little bit would be a


good thing. It is important to have continuity to the story, but not too


much. Thank you both very much indeed. A quick look at the front

windy start to Wednesday. Gusts could reach 70 mph. There could be


travel disruption. The wind will bring showers with it, into the


northern half of the UK in particular. Some of those will be


wintry on high ground. The snow will be blowing around. There will be


some dry and bright intervals, but blustery into the afternoon. Also


blustery in northern England, with a scattering of showers. The strongest


winds will be to the east of the Pennines. Not many showers here, and


largely dry in East Anglia and the south-east. Some cloud and some


sunshine. A windy afternoon, Chile too. Through showers in the


south-west. A lot of dry weather. Pretty windy through the afternoon.


Similar across most of Wales. A good scattering of showers in Northern
