We'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment -

:02:39.:02:42.

President-elect Donald Trump has rejected as "ridiculous" a CIA

:02:43.:02:46.

assessment that Russian hackers tried to sway the election

:02:47.:02:48.

You can switch off if you like, its the

:02:49.:02:53.

After findings of Russian interference in election.

:02:54.:02:57.

Reuters and others have reported that CIA sources have said no,

:02:58.:03:04.

it's not the CIA, it's coming from Democrats and it's coming quite

:03:05.:03:07.

soon because they will be briefed on the

:03:08.:03:09.

Trump is continuing to provide the facts that he personally chooses

:03:10.:03:14.

It'll be interesting to see if he can make decisions on that

:03:15.:03:18.

On this alone, we are heading towards an interesting rest

:03:19.:03:23.

John McCain wants an investigation into this and it's not

:03:24.:03:26.

The other thing is who Donald Trump might be making Secretary of State

:03:27.:03:32.

because he has connections to Vladimir Putin. He has no

:03:33.:03:35.

connections to anything governmental but that doesn't stop you ending up

:03:36.:03:39.

as president of the United States so why should it stop you from being

:03:40.:03:42.

Secretary of State? This hasn't been decided. There are still two other

:03:43.:03:45.

players mentioned. Bob Corker and obviously Mitt Romney as we have

:03:46.:03:48.

seen in the last couple of weeks. Final decision hasn't been made but

:03:49.:03:52.

it doesn't rather look like he is leading towards this man from Exxon

:03:53.:03:57.

Mobil. He is incredibly close to Putin and. Not the sort of parties

:03:58.:04:07.

where flight, oh, we have just met. It Internet gatherings. -- intimate

:04:08.:04:18.

gatherings. His supporters don't care, though? Eleanor I think they

:04:19.:04:22.

are happy to run with him on this but at the end of the day, he has to

:04:23.:04:27.

govern. Whether he can effectively change things and fulfil the

:04:28.:04:35.

promises that he made. His supporters won't be infinite. He

:04:36.:04:43.

needs to deliver. Some of it undermines his attacks on Hillary

:04:44.:04:49.

Clinton. For example, he gave speeches to Goldman Sachs -- she

:04:50.:04:52.

gave speeches. He seems to have as pointed quite a few people from

:04:53.:04:57.

Goldman Sachs. A warning bell might be going off even if they did end up

:04:58.:05:03.

backing him. Labour's migration muddle. Tricky situation. They have

:05:04.:05:16.

to tackle the immigration issue. Effectively what he is saying is it

:05:17.:05:20.

would be nice to have curbs on immigration and the reason is that

:05:21.:05:25.

immigration has depressed wages especially in the north where people

:05:26.:05:34.

have not seen wage growth. The probe remained consistory and CE in London

:05:35.:05:38.

is taking a more benign approach to immigration. -- pro Romain.

:05:39.:05:42.

In a way, this becomes a proxy conversation about Brexit. It is a

:05:43.:05:54.

difficult one to square. Labour has a massive problem because it's

:05:55.:05:58.

incredibly strong in London. At the last election London was the only

:05:59.:06:02.

place it could be happy with its performance was up 45 at 73 seats.

:06:03.:06:11.

London is pro- immigration, pro-Remain. The Mayor of Manchester

:06:12.:06:20.

is about to leave. We look at the shadow cabinet, there is a little

:06:21.:06:31.

group of MPs. Brexit, Jeremy Corbyn. Constituencies are all connected.

:06:32.:06:36.

There is a tiny bit of north London represented and of course, they are

:06:37.:06:43.

all in places that tend to be pro- immigration and pro-Remain. I wonder

:06:44.:06:47.

how on earth Labour is going to figure out what its case is when it

:06:48.:06:51.

has two very bits of the country that it's representing and its

:06:52.:06:54.

terrified of losing votes in the north to UKIP. Paul Nuttall is

:06:55.:07:03.

thinking about running in Labour's old seat and it doesn't know-how it

:07:04.:07:08.

affects that. Look at the Daily Telegraph. Home Secretary's strike

:07:09.:07:12.

warning ahead of three days of strikes. Southern rail. Southern

:07:13.:07:19.

Railway choose so horrendous that a colleague of mine dressed as

:07:20.:07:26.

Southern rail for hollow win. A signal person. A big Southern rail

:07:27.:07:30.

sign. It wasn't the hardest costume but yes, it drags on. Tuesday,

:07:31.:07:37.

Wednesday, Friday and I think also early in the New Year, we are going

:07:38.:07:40.

to have another strikes, potentially. This is a legitimate

:07:41.:07:46.

strike, they have had the proper ballot, gone through the right

:07:47.:07:50.

processes. They are allowed to do this will stop yes, but now tomorrow

:07:51.:07:54.

they face an appeal as to whether the union was entitled. Tomorrow

:07:55.:08:01.

they will appeal against High Court ruling which was last week which was

:08:02.:08:04.

trying to stop the union from walking out. Yes, it's absolutely

:08:05.:08:08.

legitimate but of course that's not much comfort of 2.5 million trained

:08:09.:08:14.

customers. But for the Home Secretary yes. The comments were

:08:15.:08:19.

quite bald. They are saying the union is wrong and they should go

:08:20.:08:24.

back to work or stay at work. The question of the union are saying is

:08:25.:08:30.

that this isn't safe. There really is not a lot of hard evidence out

:08:31.:08:34.

there. The rail regulator doesn't support the union's view on this. It

:08:35.:08:42.

is to be something that is indication of the way the world is

:08:43.:08:50.

going. It does point to questions we need to be dealing with in the

:08:51.:08:55.

economy. How do we increase wages, had we provide people with the

:08:56.:09:00.

living that they want in this environment? This is extreme because

:09:01.:09:05.

what they are asked to do, Theresa May and the transport Secretary,

:09:06.:09:12.

urged to take positions similar to Ronald Reagan. That seems

:09:13.:09:18.

extraordinary. Obviously, it is a call for it rather than actually

:09:19.:09:23.

doing it. Staying with the Telegraph, Britain facing energy

:09:24.:09:29.

crisis. We can't assume in the future, apparently, according to

:09:30.:09:37.

Andrew Wright, that we will have an uninterrupted power supply. He is

:09:38.:09:43.

making comments that one frequently hears in energy spheres. Not usually

:09:44.:09:50.

as stated in such a frank way from somebody from this company. As you

:09:51.:09:57.

move to set solar and wind, they don't flow all the way, they are

:09:58.:10:03.

intermittent. That raises questions about lack of availability at times.

:10:04.:10:07.

The way you would generally do that is have a backup generator,

:10:08.:10:12.

something like that. The problem is, because the backup generator is

:10:13.:10:15.

sometimes not been used, it is expensive because it is idle

:10:16.:10:23.

sometimes. If you want to get power from this backup generator, you have

:10:24.:10:27.

to pay more, that is what they are saying. I think you would expect

:10:28.:10:32.

regulation to deal with this. It will be a question to the country as

:10:33.:10:38.

to whether we want that to happen. I can't see us accepting a two tier

:10:39.:10:44.

situation where the rich have the privilege. It shows that the issue

:10:45.:10:49.

is of storing the electricity when you generate it. It's very difficult

:10:50.:10:57.

to do that. You need the turbines to be going all the time. Batteries a

:10:58.:11:02.

round solo, not just in electric cars, that might make these oil

:11:03.:11:07.

issue go away but batteries are expensive and will be for some time

:11:08.:11:11.

to come. Let's move on to the Guardian and a picture of Boris

:11:12.:11:15.

Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, he is in Saudi Arabia, having to be

:11:16.:11:22.

very diplomatic after saying a few days ago that Saudi Arabia was

:11:23.:11:26.

involved in running proxy wars against Iran and various parts of

:11:27.:11:30.

the Middle East, Yemen in particular. Tories are urging

:11:31.:11:42.

Johnson. He was applauded by quite a lot of people were saying what he

:11:43.:11:46.

said. As many people pointed out, he got into trouble for saying

:11:47.:11:50.

something that was actually true and fair, in most peoples minds, about

:11:51.:11:54.

Saudi Arabia when of he said some things in the past that have been

:11:55.:11:59.

neither fair or true. It's fascinating and also that Theresa

:12:00.:12:06.

May, sort of, she has appointed a loose cannon as Foreign Secretary

:12:07.:12:11.

and that is becoming quite obvious. Obviously he is trying to patch

:12:12.:12:18.

things up with the Saudis but is this the first gaffe of many? Well,

:12:19.:12:27.

it's not even the first... How much will she put up with? We are an

:12:28.:12:34.

important ally of them as well. They seem to have gotten over it was

:12:35.:12:45.

Jamaat they have downplayed Boris Johnson's comments. The question is

:12:46.:12:57.

how they feel about this. For example, our commercial

:12:58.:12:59.

relationships with Saudi Arabia. It might find ourselves that we are not

:13:00.:13:04.

at the floor of the hue for selling arms and so forth. -- fore. But as

:13:05.:13:16.

Boris Johnson said, he says he has a job to do. It seems to be the

:13:17.:13:21.

challenge that he faces. We saw them tried to build a bridge back with

:13:22.:13:25.

Boris today. I think on Andrew Maher, wasn't it? He sort of said

:13:26.:13:31.

people thought of slightly misinterpreted what he said. The

:13:32.:13:34.

same line comes out of Boris Johnson. Big personality. Here we

:13:35.:13:42.

are, you can go now if you have had enough of the leather trousers

:13:43.:13:45.

story. Metro has the best headline. The wronged trousers. This is

:13:46.:13:55.

Theresa May. She was wearing a very expensive para trousers, and 195

:13:56.:14:04.

pounds. -- pair of trousers. Nicky Morgan was rather disparaging about

:14:05.:14:09.

the cost of these trousers because, you know, we are supposed to be an

:14:10.:14:16.

economy that is working for everybody and there is the Prime

:14:17.:14:19.

Minister wearing trousers that cost ?195. -- 900 and I defy counts. --

:14:20.:14:24.

909. It would be nice if other women

:14:25.:14:39.

recognised it and didn't indulge in conversation. The reaction from

:14:40.:14:44.

Theresa May is telling. It seems extraordinary. Nicky Morgan was

:14:45.:14:49.

supposed to be going in for a meeting along with other pro- Remain

:14:50.:15:02.

people who have been very vocal. Now Nicky Morgan has been axed from the

:15:03.:15:09.

meeting. It is playground politics. There are bigger issues to deal

:15:10.:15:17.

with. Absolutely. With this substantive issue, the trousers

:15:18.:15:20.

themselves will stop I can understand Nicky Morgan's point stop

:15:21.:15:25.

if you dig about David Cameron. On business or international meetings

:15:26.:15:31.

would wear expensive suits but at home, would be deliberately

:15:32.:15:33.

down-to-earth. Serving journalists from cartons of milk. The Daily Mail

:15:34.:15:40.

has taken the story on. Nicky Morgan, top Tory that criticised 950

:15:41.:15:57.

pounds. She could have got it on an outlet.

:15:58.:16:01.

It is a ?950 Mulberry Bayswater handbag. You have some more to

:16:02.:16:08.

spend, more shopping to do. That is it for the papers. Thank you to Tom,

:16:09.:16:14.

thank you to Rosamund. Coming up next, the Film

:16:15.:16:19.
