Angela Merkel's deputy, of the consequences

if Brexit is badly handled. The Telegraph says Theresa May

has given pro-EU civil servants their marching orders,

a sizzling Bank Holiday Monday I will be presenting the news in my

:01:06.:01:33.

shorts. It is so hot... We never stop complaining about the weather.

:01:34.:01:41.

The nuclear future... Theresa May put the reins on it, on the deal

:01:42.:01:50.

going through? This deal was good to go, on the cusp of signing it and it

:01:51.:01:58.

shows how ultimately the person at the top has the power. Others have

:01:59.:02:07.

had strong concerns about the influence of China and if the person

:02:08.:02:11.

at the top says we are not going to do this, we are not going to do

:02:12.:02:21.

this. How much further the EU go? -- further to you go? That was as eerie

:02:22.:02:29.

in the 20s when America rot up infrastructure and at that time

:02:30.:02:34.

there was a threat to national security. -- brought up. After

:02:35.:02:41.

Brexit the value of the pound has gone down so it is attractive for

:02:42.:02:45.

other countries to put money into Britain. As Home Secretary she was

:02:46.:02:53.

constantly warning about concerns. They were... Will not say dismissed

:02:54.:02:59.

but suddenly she is Prime Minister. She has to be concerned about the

:03:00.:03:07.

cost. 18 billion. The Times points out and this is the crux of the

:03:08.:03:13.

story, the G20 is coming up and this is the first big international event

:03:14.:03:18.

for Theresa May and it is important that we get some sense of where the

:03:19.:03:23.

Administration stands when it comes to China. What are the concerns? Is

:03:24.:03:32.

of human rights, security, China's investment in Britain going too far?

:03:33.:03:38.

It is difficult to tell. From what we can gather from when she was Home

:03:39.:03:43.

Secretary, it was concerned about security. Hinkley will go ahead but

:03:44.:03:53.

others will be put off to allow more time for consideration. Don't

:03:54.:04:00.

forget, Boris Johnson said he wants to hit reset for relations. We have

:04:01.:04:08.

a new Prime Minister, one who wants to be in command of everything

:04:09.:04:13.

stopped she has a reputation as a Micro manager. It could be that not

:04:14.:04:20.

so much a clear direction but someone finding their way in

:04:21.:04:26.

international affairs. She has plenty of time to think about it,

:04:27.:04:39.

LAUGHTER, what an in tray Theresa May has. Civil servants,

:04:40.:04:49.

particularly in this country, changing the June, they had been

:04:50.:04:55.

producing the case for Britain staying in the EU and now baby to

:04:56.:05:02.

work out how to make this work. -- they need to work out. Lawyers in

:05:03.:05:13.

the city saying and calling to them to come to work for them. We are

:05:14.:05:19.

building whole new departments out of nothing. David Davis is keen to

:05:20.:05:28.

get an important address file his department... Really low level... A

:05:29.:05:38.

new door to his office... I think he denied that. Clearly divisions on

:05:39.:05:46.

how to press on with Brexit. But it is also the Cabinet? Yes, Whitehall

:05:47.:05:56.

emerged as having sources complaining that civil servants are

:05:57.:06:01.

not happy about Brexit and are not being helpful. Gus O'Donnell is,

:06:02.:06:08.

Lord O'Donnell, cat out and said it does not necessarily have to happen.

:06:09.:06:14.

The EU may reform and we may end up delaying it. We may be entering

:06:15.:06:22.

Humphrey B territorial, that is the fear. Theresa May turning to lawyers

:06:23.:06:32.

to see if she had to could she put a vote to the comments. The referendum

:06:33.:06:38.

was binding. It was there in the government language. The government

:06:39.:06:44.

will implement it. The people have told Parliament what they wanted to

:06:45.:06:50.

do and they have to get on with it. There will doubtless be elementary

:06:51.:06:56.

manoeuvres but it will happen. She was right to establish that. You get

:06:57.:07:04.

feedback from your readers, did you get any sense at there are concerns,

:07:05.:07:13.

warriors, confusion? It is a weird thing we do with governments in this

:07:14.:07:16.

country. We think someone is ultimately going to sort it out and

:07:17.:07:22.

that is the mentality I am picking up. The main readership Borrie about

:07:23.:07:32.

what happens now that for the majority, people are thinking, we

:07:33.:07:40.

are a out, aren't we? There will only be bothered if in a few years

:07:41.:07:45.

time it is not what they imagined was coming. In the Daily Express, as

:07:46.:07:52.

the warnings from Angela Merkel's Chancellor, Sigmar Gabriel, that if

:07:53.:08:01.

this is not done properly, the whole of Europe could go down the drain? I

:08:02.:08:10.

still cannot tell whether this is a warning or a celebration from the

:08:11.:08:15.

Daily Express! LAUGHTER we will have odd coverage for the next couple of

:08:16.:08:20.

years while we work out what sort of deal we will work out. Comments by

:08:21.:08:32.

anyone... A secret German plot, a new direction, a Brussels rearguard

:08:33.:08:38.

action... She is almost seen as the woman holding the EU to gather. The

:08:39.:08:45.

refugee crisis... She has elections coming up, France has elections

:08:46.:08:52.

coming up and we do not even know who we will be dealing with. Germany

:08:53.:08:58.

has a dynamic economy still going on which absolutely dominates so it is

:08:59.:09:05.

understandable it is a linchpin... Some other countries

:09:06.:09:10.

strengthening... A lot of Richards felt that the EU kept on saying we

:09:11.:09:17.

love you but if you try to reform, we will kill you. And they are doing

:09:18.:09:25.

it again. Again, it is the old double standard. Half way is towards

:09:26.:09:35.

them. Interesting analysis. In the Scottish Daily Mail, the front page

:09:36.:09:40.

on Sir Philip Green accused of blackmail. His handling of the BHS

:09:41.:09:53.

and the pension scheme. This... You could have done this a lot earlier

:09:54.:10:01.

if he was really bothered by this. Now he is protecting his reputation.

:10:02.:10:07.

It is odd in some ways, I cannot imagine ten years on from when he

:10:08.:10:12.

got his knighthood that someone in his position would be given a

:10:13.:10:16.

knighthood. The days when you are an incredibly rich businessman and you

:10:17.:10:22.

are celebrated... I cannot imagine having the equivalent today. The

:10:23.:10:30.

final BHS stores have closed today. We are now just picking up the

:10:31.:10:36.

pieces. It is whether or not he is made to offer for its full of

:10:37.:10:42.

whether he can deal with the investigations and salvage his

:10:43.:10:49.

reputation. 22,000 staff affected, they are the real victors. The

:10:50.:10:55.

unacceptable case of capitalism, that is that the Fraser years. Given

:10:56.:11:03.

that senior Labour figures who argue Sir Richard Branson - He with

:11:04.:11:08.

ethical - should have his night would taken away... The Financial

:11:09.:11:18.

Times reports on Singapore suffering outbreak of Zika. Scientists did

:11:19.:11:26.

warn us? It is the idea that this awful disease has the effect of

:11:27.:11:31.

effecting babies when they are born and living with them with small

:11:32.:11:37.

heads and deformities. It has taken hold in bits of Florida and in

:11:38.:11:42.

particular in Brazil but there is a fear about where it is going to

:11:43.:11:48.

spread next and there is a small cluster in Singapore. The extent to

:11:49.:11:52.

which we can contain it and do anything about it, to identify who

:11:53.:11:58.

has it earlier, to get drugs in place, but we are all terrified it

:11:59.:12:06.

is something that can come and get us and we can do nothing about it.

:12:07.:12:11.

Ultimately what you can do as an individual is nothing. Thank you for

:12:12.:12:21.

that! Some concerns that Theresa May has? Throughout history, when ever

:12:22.:12:31.

there has been investment in Britain, they have been concerned

:12:32.:12:36.

about the ramifications. -- at there are have been. We are seeing China

:12:37.:12:43.

go through that now. It is reasonable to be concerned. State

:12:44.:12:48.

and enterprises and China is not the kind of democracy we are. It has not

:12:49.:12:54.

stopped us doing business. We have not stopped doing business with

:12:55.:13:01.

Saudi Arabia and other countries. If Britain is open for business, it is

:13:02.:13:05.

fantastic but were Ross Peraudo a Liberal democracy will with certain

:13:06.:13:14.

standards. They are looking into Aston Villa so that if a major

:13:15.:13:22.

concern. Have a great Bank Holiday weekend and enjoy the sunshine. The

:13:23.:13:26.

film review is next.
