Hello and welcome to our bite-size look... Oh, dear. There you are. We

:00:19.:00:25.

have settles down. The look at the newspapers. With me are Tinbergen

:00:26.:00:31.

from Reuters and Daily Telegraph columnist Lucy Cavendish. -- Tim

:00:32.:00:39.

Bergen. The independent's FrontPage, no way back for Britain's joining

:00:40.:00:46.

the Syrian fight. Theresa May, doing something she said she would do some

:00:47.:00:49.

time ago but it is an exclusive anyway. The numbers are descriptive.

:00:50.:00:57.

Citizenship stripping powers is probably overstating it a bit. In

:00:58.:01:02.

April she said they would step up the use of these powers. If you

:01:03.:01:08.

fight as a jihadist, they will take away your passport. This has been

:01:09.:01:14.

exercised 30 times since May 2010, much more than happened previously.

:01:15.:01:18.

It is not an unpopular policy. Many people did not object to this. If

:01:19.:01:29.

people lose their passport, they could be subjected to torture.

:01:30.:01:32.

Probably not much sympathy for them in this country though. But Theresa

:01:33.:01:39.

May is doing what she said she was going to do. There you go. Top

:01:40.:01:50.

story! It is not going to be unpopular with anybody. Well they're

:01:51.:01:54.

not be any comeback at the European Court of Human Rights? -- will there

:01:55.:02:03.

not be? Possibly. You have to prove they are a jihadist and that will

:02:04.:02:07.

take some time. People do not go to Syria on holidays lately. Not

:02:08.:02:13.

particularly. Lets go onto another story because we don't have much to

:02:14.:02:20.

say about that. Rivers of blood panic. Vince Cable speaking out.

:02:21.:02:25.

Saying there will be no cap on remaining than Bulgarians and

:02:26.:02:28.

anybody else for that matter coming from elsewhere in the EU. Yes, this

:02:29.:02:36.

is very interesting. Tom is also pointing out that the Lib Dems want

:02:37.:02:40.

to differentiate themselves from the Tories. This is an area that they

:02:41.:02:45.

will be doing it in. We talk about the fact that there is a lot of

:02:46.:02:51.

panic about remaining than Bulgarians coming in. I think there

:02:52.:02:54.

is scaremongering going on by the Government that it will be awful and

:02:55.:02:58.

dreadful and nobody will have any work and they will be swamping in. I

:02:59.:03:02.

did think that is necessarily true and I think it is pandering to the

:03:03.:03:09.

UKIP potential voters. I like Vince Cable. It is a big analogy. The

:03:10.:03:16.

rivers of blood is so divisive, a very strong analogy to make. It is

:03:17.:03:22.

not quite what he has been saying, is it? Not using appalling images,

:03:23.:03:29.

have they? I think it is strong language but if you look around

:03:30.:03:33.

Europe, European leaders have been describing Britain as positioning

:03:34.:03:41.

themselves as the nasty people. I have been to Romania and lots of

:03:42.:03:45.

them are doing work in different countries and they come back to

:03:46.:03:48.

their families. There is this fluid idea. The sense that they will up

:03:49.:03:53.

sticks with all members of their family and plonk themselves in the

:03:54.:03:56.

middle of London or wherever, I think that is the panic too far,

:03:57.:04:05.

personally. Soldiering on over the festive holiday worse for the NHS.

:04:06.:04:13.

Many of us putting up with ailments. This is a strange message that too

:04:14.:04:18.

many people are swamping A practices because they are

:04:19.:04:21.

malingerers and now the NHS is saying that we do not seek medical

:04:22.:04:26.

attention early enough. It is quite confusing. He is not suggesting

:04:27.:04:30.

necessarily that you should go to A with every small ailment. Go and

:04:31.:04:35.

see your GP. You can't because you cannot get an appointment. I could

:04:36.:04:40.

not get my poor daughter in for her Paulinho. What do you do? Sit in a

:04:41.:04:46.

anywhere it is nice and warm? Get the chocolate bar from the vending

:04:47.:04:49.

machine on Christmas Day? It would be quite exciting. On the one hand,

:04:50.:04:55.

we are told not to go and bother people in A but on the other what

:04:56.:05:01.

are you supposed to do? The Financial Times, Mikhail

:05:02.:05:04.

Khodorkovsky, pledging to refrain from Vladimir Putin challenge. He

:05:05.:05:08.

has plenty of money so he could bankroll other opposition figures.

:05:09.:05:13.

It is interesting because other headlines were saying the opposite

:05:14.:05:17.

in some cases. He has made enigmatic comments and he has not made it

:05:18.:05:21.

clear what he is going to do. He has a lot of funds, so he could be a

:05:22.:05:27.

thorn in Vladimir Putin's sides. Does he have enough for some

:05:28.:05:33.

polonium? Who does not want to go back in a hurry. He wants to make

:05:34.:05:37.

sure that you can leave again if he does go back. That was it. Tom and

:05:38.:05:43.

Lucy will be back and we will have a proper go at them at 11:30pm. Time

:05:44.:05:46.

for the weather forecast now. Hello. We have got some rough

:05:47.:06:00.

weather to content with over the next couple of days in the run-up to

:06:01.:06:04.

Christmas which is likely to cause

:06:05.:06:05.
