How badly our NHS targets being
this? We asked the Health Secretary
last week, and he couldn't answer.
Why won't you tell me
what the number is, the percentage?
It is not my target,
it is your own number.
Because we don't have a number
to publish, there is no number that
I'm sitting on that I am
not telling you.
It will be published next
week and I don't know
what that number will be.
Today we got the true figures.
Waiting time performances
in A&E are at their worst
level for 14 years.
We hear from one doctor
who is feeling it first-hand.
A&E is at breaking point.
We are exceptionally,
Doctors and nurses are being
pushed to the limit.
And patients are having to wait far
too long for the care they deserve,
Also tonight: Guess who fancies
a second referendum on Brexit?
I'm reaching the point in thinking
that we should have a second
referendum on EU membership.
The whole thing?!
Why do both sides still think
they would win if we asked
the country to vote all over again?
And what does Europe make of us?
We'll ask the president
of the Eurogroup.
We'll also be joined
by the author of "that" Trump
Fire and Fury, Michael Wolff.
And we report from the ruins
of Mosul in Iraq, where some
estimate that 10,000 people
lost their lives.
In some parts of Mosul,
the smell of death is
pungent even after months
since the battle for the city ended.
The bodies of many residents
are still trapped under the rubble.
It's getting harder by the day
to pretend the NHS is not
in crisis this winter.
Like a rubber band you keep
pulling and pulling,
said one consultant today,
eventually it snaps.
Staff have described patients dying
prematurely in corridors.
But if you want harder figures,
they're here for the taking.
Waiting times performances
in accident and emergency
departments have reached their worst
level in 14 years.
Today a letter from the heads
of more than 60 A&E departments
in England and Wales warned
the Prime Minister that the current
level of safety compromise
is at times intolerable.
Last week, I asked the Health
Secretary Jeremy Hunt how far off
target the waiting figures were.
He didn't have the number.
But today we heard performance
levels were the worst result
since the introduction
of the target in 2004.
Here's Chris Cook.
Accident and emergency figures
are the most visible sign
of the strain now placed
on the English NHS.
Rising patient demand has
overwhelmed the service's
ability to cope.
Let's take a look at monthly A&E
performance going back to 2010.
Since then, emergency departments
have been aiming to deal
with 95% of patients
within four hours.
That target, that is
the dotted line.
That has proved harder
in winter months.
Marked in by these grey bars.
If we draw in the line
showing their performance,
the most striking pattern is that
during the last Parliament,
A&E performance started
to drift away from target.
It is now well off, down at 85%.
The number is even lower.
If you look just at
traditional, major A&Es.
So-called type ones.
And don't think include things
like walk-in centres.
Our hospitals are overfull.
We are miles from where we need
to be to hit our targets.
It means my patients are waiting
in the waiting room,
maybe sometimes standing
because there aren't
even enough chairs.
Patients are waiting in corridors,
patients may have to wait
in the back of ambulances.
And then when patients
even get into a cubicle,
sometimes there are two patients
just with a temporary partition
between them for a bit of privacy.
It is sometimes just
a number, just a statistic.
But it is having real
effects to patients.
Some individual hospital trusts
have seen astonishing
collapses in performance.
Take the Blackpool and
Royal Cornwall Trust.
They were respectively
at 61% and 77% last year.
Both poor performances.
This year, they dropped
to 40% and 58%.
The NHS is 70 years old this year,
and we know by now the pressures
on it will keep growing.
Medicine is advancing
so it can treat more stuff
and our society is ageing.
But the NHS budget has been growing
at a historically slow rate
since the onset of austerity
under the Coalition.
It keeps becoming ever more
efficient but it can no longer meet
the demands being placed on it.
The underlying problem is best
illustrated by this chart.
The number of people turning up
to A&Es just keeps rising, and this
isn't about people who should not be
there skipping the queue at the GP.
You can see that if you look
at the past 12 months.
The number of people turning up
at major A&Es has risen by 1%
but the number of people sick
enough, turning up to A&E who need
admitting to hospital,
is up by 5.6%.
The underlying pressure
is that we are an ageing society
with rising sickness levels.
And this year, a bad case of flu.
We are seeing the same as we saw
last year with no change and it
could just get worse and worse next
year and the year after and that is
the real worrying thing.
Because we are at breaking point.
Who knows where we will be
if nothing changes by next year?
There are no easy fixes here.
The elastic won't spring
back as winter thaws.
Either we pay more in tax or we'll
pay more in the form
of worse health care.
We asked the Government and NHS
England to join us tonight
but nobody was available.
In a statement, the Department
of Health said it treated
more than 55,000 people
within the four-hour
target every day.
NHS England said it was dealing
with rising flu and record numbers
of admissions but that the service
had managed to maintain A&E
performance at the same
level as last January.
I'm joined by Dr Taj
of the Royal College of Emergency
We saw there figure is rising up.
Very nice of you to come in. How
accurately do the figures reflect
what happens to you on an average
shift? Described for us, if you can,
your last shift.
It was a busy one.
It involved a significant number of
patients in my department who were
coming in through the front door,
but there was also a significant
number of patients, unfortunately,
that I and my staff were caring for
a should have been on wards in the
hospital. We are effectively
managing a ward for a patient that
should be within the hospital as
well as the ones coming through the
door, so that unfortunately creates
what is called a crowded emergency
department, or exit blocked, because
we can't get them out of our
department, and that causes delays
in assessment, in antibiotics being
given, and delays in pain relief. It
compromises the dignity of the
patients that we care for, which I
think is one of the big things that
nurses and doctors in our department
is care about.
When you say it
compromises the dignity of patients,
does it all so ultimately compromise
their safety, or do you still feel
confident that you are delivering
the same levels of medicine?
in a health service where I think we
have amongst the best health care
workers in the world, people who
were really, really hard, and they
will go the extra mile, but
unfortunately, the Independent
scientific evidence, both from the
UK and internationally, shows that
the more crowded your emergency
department, the greater the risk of
harm to patients, and that has been
This is not going to get
better now, because of the
demographics and the way that
society is ageing, this is a problem
that we're going to live with or
after solving a totally different
I don't think it should be
something that we should live with,
because unfortunately, over the last
five years, we have had a number of
significant cuts in areas that have
influenced that crowded emergency
department. We have cut £6 billion
out of social care funding, and that
results in patients who are fit from
hospital beds that need to be sent
home, they and their families want
them to be at home, and they can't
get out of hospital. We have cut the
number of Acute Hospital beds by
approximately 15,000, which results
in and exacerbates the exit blocked.
Most importantly, we have had to
compromise in terms of the number of
staff that we're able to employ, for
a variety of reasons.
And that is
critical. Privately, are you having
more hearing conversations by staff
who are saying, actually, why would
I carry on if I am five years away
from retirement, or even ten years,
and take the risk of ever doing
something that could be damaging if
I work in these conditions? Is that
Over the last few years,
there has been a recognition that in
my specialty, if you rank
specialties for a potential for
burn-out than people leaving
prematurely, emergency medicine sits
at the top, and that is in the
international ranking. We have been
campaigning hard for the last year,
and actually, last October, with the
help of colleagues from NHS England
and NHS Improvement, especially
people like Jim Mackie and Si

Thank you for coming in.
Does anyone really think
there should be a second referendum
on our decision to leave the EU?
The latest advocate
of a return to the ballot box
came from unexpected
quarters this morning.
Nigel Farage told Channel 5's
The Wright Stuff that he was warming
to the idea and believed a second
vote would result in
another - much bigger -
win in favour of Brexit.
Have a listen.
My mind is actually
changing on this.
What is for certain
is that the Cleggs, the
Blairs, the Adonises
will never, ever give up.
They will go on whingeing
and whining and moaning
all the way through this
process, so maybe, just
maybe, I'm reaching
point of thinking that we should
have a second referendum, because...
On EU membership.
The whole thing?!
Yes, of course, of course.
Unless you want to
have a multiple-choice
would confuse people.
No, no, no, I, I, I...
I think if we had
a second referendum
on EU membership, we'd kill it
off for a generation.
The percentage that would vote
to Leave next time would be
very much bigger than it
was last time round.
It may just finish
the whole thing off.
We'll be discussing this in moment
with our guests here.
But first, our political editor,
Nick Watt, is here.
Nick, the story doesn't end there?
That's right, a slight row wingback
by Nigel Farage this evening in the
Daily Telegraph. He has gone from
what he said there, saying maybe we
should have a second referendum, to
saying, I fear that maybe there
would be a second referendum if
Parliament vote down the deal. Today
he spoke at because Brexit
supporters were strongly critical of
him, and remain supporters said
thank you very much. This was
sparked off last week when Tony
Blair said the British people should
have the right to have a say, either
in an election or a referendum on
that final deal. Earlier today, I
spoke to Tony Blair's former
director of communications, Alistair
Campbell, and is as what he had to
And I think, actually, Nigel Farage,
I think we're the reason that Farage
and Johnson and these guys
are getting a little bit desperate
and just trying to take the ball
into the corner flag and just get
the final whistle blown.
Because I think they understand that
as people do see the detail,
do realise the cost and the chaos,
then not only should
they have the right to think again
but I think they will want to think
again and I think they will give
you a very different answer.
And everyone thinks that the polls
would now go their way, which is
fascinating. How do the polls sit?
Interestingly, there is a snap poll
in the daily Mirror after those
Nigel Farage remarks, showing there
is minority support per second
referendum, 43-51, but a majority
support for Remain, 55-45. It is a
snap poll, better to look at the
monthly tracker on that question,
which asks, is it right or wrong to
have left the EU? And that shows
even Stevens, though since August,
it was wrong has been ahead. There
was a blip of nine points for the
league side. Today, we spoke to
Deborah Martinson of Britain Thinks.
So, we've been tracking this
at Britain Thinks over the last 18
months and the really fascinating
thing is that people's fundamental
views haven't changed
at all in that time.
So really nothing has changed,
other than people are more worried.
But I think the one thing you have
to factor in when you think
about this is the youth vote.
Of course, what we know is that many
more young people voted
in the last election,
people who didn't vote
in the referendum.
If they still vote, then that
could change things.
Joining me now is Diane James,
the former leader of UKIP,
Lucy Thomas, who was deputy director
of the Remain campaign,
and Jeroen Dijsselbloem,
former Dutch Finance minister
and outgoing president
of the eurogroup of eurozone
Nice to have all of you. Diane, what
was he thinking?
I am not sure! What
was he smoking? It took you by
surprise? It did, this is the sort
of thing Nigel has got form with, he
does have outrageous statements and
in context, I will give my personal
response, I can understand his
frustration with the fact that the
Remainers have not given up in
trying to overturn this decision and
when you hear that Tony Blair
launches a £10 million fund and
there are other organisations
endorsed by the likes of Sir Nick
Clegg and such, they still want to
overturn a democratic vote, it is
quite unbelievable. It will be
interesting to see where this goes.
Would you be up for the fight? Of
course I would. And I brought this
document with me, this future of
Europe, this was released to the
MEPs in October last year and this
actually fleshes out the future of
the European Union. It is a
frightening document in terms of
control. When that is in the public
domain it will be interesting to see
how people react.
Lucy, would you
relish a second chance? For me it
was a democratic decision, people
have had their say and I want to ask
Nigel Farage, why can't you accept
that you have one? What do you not
accept? I have no Nigel Farage for
about ten years and he alone is the
fight, he loves campaigning. You
think this is about publicity? He
wants to remain relevant. The point
of Diane was that Nick Clegg and
Tony Blair do not feel this was
undemocratic terms because of false
promises, is at a reason to go back
to the polls?
There are some former
Remainers who would like a second
referendum but going back to what
Nick said about the polls, public
opinion has not shifted, there isn't
any massive clamour for a second
referendum and I don't think there
is any big push for that. You can
think about once the terms are
known, where people to be suddenly
up in arms and say we don't like
these terms, do you want a second
But the polls are not there. You
were at the vanguard of that, deputy
director, would you fight this in a
different way? Did you look back
with your head in your hands at the
way the Remain campaign went about
I think it was a very hard
campaign to fight. Given that
people, when we first started, it
was 50-50, when we spoke to focus
groups there was no real concept of
what the positives of remaining
wearer. Within six months, there was
a huge amount of work to do to land
those positives, what do we get from
being in the EU? It is a very hard
discussion, not least because in a
referendum when there are choices
and it is a very conjugated
question, people can put all sorts
of different things into the pot.
And our building to take back
control or whatever it is they
choose to put into the pot.
Djesselbloem, what is Europe
thinking about Brexit right now?
Today, after this cry from the
second referendum? I have not heard
anybody in Brussels arguing for a
second referendum. I think people in
Brussels are waiting for what does
the UK government want to have in
the end deal? What does it look
like? We want clarity to move
forward on that.
It is up to the UK
government to decide what that looks
To have a negotiating
position, indeed. Very helpful. No
one in Brussels is questioning the
mandate that the UK government has
coming out of the first referendum,
that is quite clear, there is going
to be Brexit. We are trying to sort
out these conjugated questions, what
does it look like, the future
relationship? My argument, we focus
on trying to solve these issues and
minimise the losses because is going
to be losses on all sides. Let us
focus on that rather than reopen the
debate and going back to zero.
is a delicious irony that the only
person questioning the mandate is
the former leader of Ukip, Nigel
Farage! Does it suggest, as Lucy
said, that he just wants to be back
at the centre of attention? Or does
he think that it is not convincing
enough people that this is going in
the right direction?
He has got two
objectives, he wants to expose the
degree of resistance from the
Remainers, that still is with them
in terms of their absolutely
determined to overturn that
I am not at all and I see
it as a democratic decision, there
But Tony Blair and Nick
Clegg are leading this is the main
issue of overturning that democratic
decision. And the Labour Party is
being very interesting in terms of
denying its position that everything
at once currently would mean staying
in the EU.
That is absolutely not
right, to quote Nigel Farage, he
said before the referendum that if
it were to be narrow and 52 remain,
48 to leave, that would be
unfinished business, and what he
said he would carry on fighting

former Remainers and want a second
goal, Nigel Farage himself said
52-42 was too narrow.

and the people in the UK have to
understand that Brexit is no longer
on the front pages in Europe and has
not been for some months. It is on
the front pages in the UK every day,
the first three pages. If you open
up the papers on the continent you
will find very little.

Do you think the concept of
no deal is a very clever way of
bringing Europe right to the table?
Where Theresa May needs to start
negotiations? My sense is that some
strategic politicians in the UK
thought that if they said, if they
threatened us with no deal, that
would be helpful for their position.
It has completely backfired because
in Europe people are preparing for
the possible outcome of no deal and
the British Government is in panic.
How can it be that they are
preparing no deal? It is going to be
a bad situation, it is a bad
decision, the car industry is right.

all very much indeed.
"Why are we having all these people
from shithole countries come here?"
That, according to the Washington
Post, is what Donald Trump today
uttered during a meeting aimed
at finding a cross-party
deal on immigration.
This revelation comes hot
on the heels of Michael Wolff's book
on the Trump White House.
A bit like any tweet
by the President, Fire and Fury has
caused a stir the ramifications
of which may not truly be understood
for some time to come.
What we do know is that
a bad tempered tiff
between the President and his former
White House Advisor Steve Bannon
over the contents of Wolff's book
has changed the dynamics of the US
political climate with his departure
this week from Breitbart News.
Michael Wolff is with us for his
very first British TV interview,
joining us from New York. Did you
feel when you were writing this
book, but in this book together, did
you feel as if you are trying to
bring down the President?
opposite. I went into this project,
into the White House, with an
entirely open mind. I really would
have been willing to write a book
about the unexpected success of
Donald Trump. That, of course, is
not what I found, quite the
opposite. Stop I find a White House
filled with the people closest to
him who turned out to be the people
most worried about him.
talk about going into the White
House, the details are fascinating
from any of us. Give us some sense
of your access. Donald Trump he
denies he spoke to you or that you
had any access, did you walk into
the same place every time? Did you
say hello to the same people?
exactly. Donald Trump's says that I
had no access and no permission
because I was there for the better
part of seven months. You have to
ask the question, how do they get
there? And the answer is, Donald
Trump. I said to Donald Trump and he
says he doesn't know me but we have
known each other for 20 years. At
any rate, I said that I would like
to come and be an observer at the
White House and he thought I was
asking for a job. I said I wanted to
write a book. And his face fell with
absolute lack of interest in the
idea of the book. But he said OK,
knock yourself out. And with that,
using that, but basically became the
carte blanche for me to enter the
White House, to stay there, to sit
down with almost every member of the
senior staff again and again.
with Donald Trump himself, how many
times would you say that you
conversed with him personally since

the beginning on this that I have
spent about three hours with Donald
Trump through the campaign, the
transition and in the White House.
Since he became President, how long
would that have been?

the record session and then I would
see him in The West Wing and we

My question is, you think
that balance remains a key figure on
the ideological right? Will Trump be
weakened or strengthened wi-fi ten?
Will he lose his base? Where he goes
soft or does it make the next year
of elections easier for him?
think we know the answer to this. It
might well mean that Trump goes to
the traditional Republican side,
does not run the sort of wing nut
party in Congressional races and it
gives the Republicans an advantage.
That is one scenario. Another is
that Steve Bannon decides to take
down Donald Trump.
Could he do that?
Without Breitbart News?
know. Steve Bannon, his title was
chief strategist in the White House
and he is nothing if not the
ultimate strategist. I would
anticipate that at this point he is
thinking through his options. But I
felt that when he spoke to me for
this book, he was making, on his way
to making a calculated break with
the President, who honestly, he
seemed to regard as an idiot.
to pick up on some of the criticism
of the book, Gillette conflicting
narratives get told, unclear whether
he had been told these things

conversations, some say it is
directly out of Donald Trump's own
playbook. Why not make it more
Yes, let me talk a little
about this book. The book has become
something more than a book, it has
become a political event. That means
it is going to be the subject of an
enormous amount of controversy, it
means that a lot of people said
things to me and now they find
themselves like Dors in the
headlights. My job on this book and
I really had just one goal, it was
too, as I sat there every day on a
couch in The West Wing, to bring the
reader right there. So that the
reader could experience what I
You don't regret the
fact that it is so unfiltered?
My job is to bring an absolutely
unfiltered account. It has been
enormous controversy about that but
what I would say is that there is
room for a lot of interpretations of
this White House, not only room but
there will be so it is not just...
There are daily reporters doing a
good job of covering the White
House. But my account, and it is an
account that has obviously resonated
with people, apparently everywhere,
it is a contextual story of what has
Over these number of
months. Let me ask you... At this
point you have written the book
after he became President. Many
journalists are questioning how they
covered the campaign, is there any
guilt that you or your colleagues
were much too caught up in a very
sensational, sexy story to cover? If
you were going back right now, you
would be covering Trump in a very
Well, I don't know. I
am not sure that I have any
colleagues, which is part of the
interesting thing that allowed me to
write a totally independent version
of this White House. But I think,
from the beginning, there has been a
problem. Nobody has known how to
cover Donald Trump. When this
administration began, many in the
media said we cannot normalise this
person. Effectively, the media
coverage has formalised it. So the
explosions every day have become so
normal that we can no longer member
what happened the day before. I
would maintain that I actually may
have found a way to write about this
Presidency and this President.

The concert pianist James Rhodes
publishes a memoir this
week, Fire on all Sides,
in which he recounts his experience
of suffering from mental illness.
This is his take on the
pursuit of happiness.
We're not meant to be
happy all of the time.
The pursuit of happiness seems
like such a noble one.
And yet it is fundamentally flawed.
No one knows for sure how many
civilians were killed in the battle
to liberate the city of Mosul
from the so-called Islamic State.
The city was the group's last urban
stronghold in Iraq before
it was retaken last July

of US-led coalition forces.
Amnesty International has reported
that the civilian death toll
could be up to 10,000 -
more than ten times
the official estimate.

Persian Service has returned
to Mosul, where the city's former
old town lies in ruins and life
for ordinary Iraqis has anything
but returned to normal.
This street used to be the beating
heart of the old part of Mosul,
Iraq's second most populated city.
Even for a country
which has seen many
battles over the years,
destruction here is unprecedented.

Islamic State out of its main
stronghold in Iraq has left large
parts of this city in ruins.

noise of shops, restaurants and busy
traffic navigating through the

The task to rebuild
Mosul and clear the
city of its rubble will take years.
Driving IS fighters out
of the narrow alleys
of the old city took many months.
These same streets and buildings
with plenty of remaining
death traps are proving to be
the most difficult to clear.
In some parts of Mosul,
the smell of death
is pungent, even after months
since the battle for the city ended.
The bodies of many
residents are still
trapped under the rubble,
and there are people still looking

for which Radiohead
were themselves successfully sued.
We're looking forward
to fresh copyright claims
from the 1950s tomorrow.
Until then, you decide who takes
home the pot of gold.

the dead out of the sea.
# And the darkness from the arts.
# This is my commitment.
# My modern manifesto.
RADIOHEAD: # I wanna perfect body.
# I wanna perfect soul.
THE HOLLIES: # Peace came upon me.
# And it leaves me weak.
RADIOHEAD: # She's running out.
# She's run, run, run, ruuuuuun.
THE HOLLIES: # All I need

# Yes to love you.
