Theresa May says the Government has a duty to step in

and tackle injustice. The Sunday Times leads

Foreign Office deputy. And the Sun on Sunday

feature a story of a man, who was born a girl

:01:11.:01:12.

20 years ago, being Let's start with the Sunday

:01:13.:01:38.

Telegraph. This is to reason me, I think she has written a piece inside

:01:39.:01:40.

and the front page is taking experts from it.

:01:41.:01:41.

think she has written a piece inside and the front page is taking experts

:01:42.:01:42.

from it. The shared society, not the big society. This appears to be to

:01:43.:01:48.

reason me's mission statement in setting up the platform for and,

:01:49.:01:54.

almost. Along article, by the look of it, inside. The shared society is

:01:55.:02:03.

the theme. It does seem reminiscent of David Cameron and his big

:02:04.:02:08.

society, doesn't it? It doesn't give me a lot of excitement in terms of

:02:09.:02:12.

watching is actually saying. This is the thing about, we don't want to

:02:13.:02:17.

give out a hand-out, and want to give a hand up, world this is about

:02:18.:02:22.

giving a handshake. Everyone should be nice to each other and it is the

:02:23.:02:24.

business of government to make sure business of government to make sure

:02:25.:02:30.

we are all nice. Actually, it is a defining difference between her and

:02:31.:02:35.

David Cameron. Actually, she sees this as defining thing in her whole

:02:36.:02:41.

Conservative philosophy which is very different from what David

:02:42.:02:45.

Cameron had and also different from Margaret Cho who she is sometimes

:02:46.:02:51.

compared to four the obvious reason that she is the female Prime

:02:52.:02:56.

Minister of this company. She she does talk further down first of all

:02:57.:03:03.

about there is a society, for a Star, which is interesting in

:03:04.:03:06.

itself, and then talking about it is the job of government to tackle the

:03:07.:03:13.

increasing lack of affordability in housing, fixing the markets, an

:03:14.:03:16.

interesting position for a Conservative, she has said she is

:03:17.:03:21.

not all about individuals and self-interest which is always the

:03:22.:03:24.

allegations thrown at the Conservatives, that is what they are

:03:25.:03:29.

about, very individualistic party, and she is saying there is a role

:03:30.:03:33.

for intervention, the government is trying to assist and we are going to

:03:34.:03:41.

get a series of speeches... This is all about exploiting the weakness of

:03:42.:03:47.

labour. What she is setting up is, yes, I'm listening to you, I

:03:48.:03:50.

understand the country, the people of this country are unhappy, they

:03:51.:03:54.

feel the elite are in control and not listening to them, I will listen

:03:55.:03:57.

to you, I will give you a platform to be the country we all wanted to

:03:58.:04:03.

be, almost, and, by the way, I can do something about it, not that

:04:04.:04:06.

other lot who are sliding into irrelevance. There is also a role

:04:07.:04:12.

for government to do this which is also a fundamental change. David

:04:13.:04:15.

Cameron's big society was about people outside of society doing

:04:16.:04:19.

things where she is saying government itself can do some of

:04:20.:04:24.

these things. There is a big gap between the government saying they

:04:25.:04:27.

will do them and achieving them and doing them and that is the test she

:04:28.:04:31.

will face over the coming years. Brexit doesn't get much of a

:04:32.:04:36.

mention. Let's go on to the Sunday Times, though, let's go to you, Ben.

:04:37.:04:44.

This is Sir Ivan Rogers, he has just quit as the European Union

:04:45.:04:47.

Ambassador, and apparently he secretly met a bit camera that

:04:48.:04:51.

allsorts of things. It is saying that David Cameron shares the same

:04:52.:04:55.

concerns that Ivan Rogers has about the risk of Britain facing a

:04:56.:05:01.

disorderly exit from the European Union and they are both concerned

:05:02.:05:04.

about this may have this meeting before Sir Ivan Rogers made this

:05:05.:05:08.

rather dramatic resignation earlier this week. They have had this

:05:09.:05:15.

concerned that there is going to be, Rogers says he thinks weenie to plan

:05:16.:05:24.

for a disorderly works it and Number ten... And David Cameron is concern

:05:25.:05:27.

about the same type of thing. Of course we don't know that that is

:05:28.:05:35.

the case. I suppose the document is that the interesting thing is to say

:05:36.:05:38.

that he has been plotting and conniving, allegedly, that is the

:05:39.:05:48.

subject of this, with David Cameron. There has been an increasing schism

:05:49.:05:56.

in the time since she replaced as leader of the party, this will only

:05:57.:06:00.

exacerbate that. Really, it will be seen that her predecessor was

:06:01.:06:03.

happily working with someone who may be seen by government to be

:06:04.:06:09.

undermining government. The alarming phraseology talks about heading for

:06:10.:06:18.

up car crash, Sir Ivan Rogers. A mutually assured destruction. Quite

:06:19.:06:25.

cataclysmic. Let's stick with the Observer. UK at risk of Brexit trade

:06:26.:06:31.

catastrophe. This is something to do with someone from Canada the

:06:32.:06:36.

Canadians are usually rather smooth talkers and very friendly, but that

:06:37.:06:43.

doesn't sound very friendly as tall. This is coming from the Observer and

:06:44.:06:48.

to coin a phrase, they would do, wouldn't they? Taking the neck at

:06:49.:06:55.

its side of any exit argument. An interesting... What does he say? He

:06:56.:07:03.

is basically saying that the dangers of the badly done Deal or no deal

:07:04.:07:09.

will be extremely grim for the prospects of the UK economy going

:07:10.:07:16.

forward, which of course, many people do fear. He is playing to a

:07:17.:07:22.

particular audience here. What we don't really get if he alleges that

:07:23.:07:25.

written is at risk of catastrophic Brexit because the government is so

:07:26.:07:31.

dismissive of experts but I am not sure they are. We don't really know

:07:32.:07:37.

what the government position is yet. Also, I'm not sure they are

:07:38.:07:40.

dismissive. I think the government truly quite aware of the need to

:07:41.:07:47.

continue and try to maintain our trading links and of course how they

:07:48.:07:50.

do that is a very difficult issue and part of what he is talking here

:07:51.:07:54.

is of course the Canadian deal with the EU took an awful lot of work and

:07:55.:07:59.

belief are done at the last minute and has just been signed and sealed.

:08:00.:08:03.

And we will have to do eels with all other countries rather than as one

:08:04.:08:09.

block as before. As I say, I'm not sure that his allegation that the

:08:10.:08:11.

government is not where of these risks is actually accurate. The real

:08:12.:08:17.

question is whether they can achieve it. It talks about this terrible

:08:18.:08:22.

long timescale, this business about things taking possibly a decade.

:08:23.:08:27.

That sounds alarming. Some people say even if we had no trade eel, we

:08:28.:08:32.

could operate in the world. We trade with the United States, we can work

:08:33.:08:40.

on WTO rules, we trade with the US under those rules and some people

:08:41.:08:43.

say that the Wii and adequate position to be in. Whether that is

:08:44.:08:48.

true or not is another issue. This strange story in a Mail on Sunday,

:08:49.:08:52.

the Royal plot to take down Tory minister. It is all based on

:08:53.:08:58.

something going on in a restaurant. Apparently, the target was very

:08:59.:09:04.

un-keen on the things that Sir Alec Duncan has been saying and it is a

:09:05.:09:15.

strange one, isn't it? A little bit is that all cattle over the dinner

:09:16.:09:16.

table. -- titled cattle. We don't have any independent view

:09:17.:09:36.

of the Commons. She will be asked questions of what she actually said.

:09:37.:09:39.

Her comment at the end is it was purely a social meeting with the

:09:40.:09:46.

Israeli official and it was just chatting about politics, many years

:09:47.:09:55.

people do it. One thing important thing is that this evening, the

:09:56.:09:57.

Israeli ambassador to London has apologised for the comment made

:09:58.:10:03.

other deputy during down this Alan Duncan. It is a tremendous Tory

:10:04.:10:11.

because it revealed that his ology eyes for this contact, suggesting

:10:12.:10:17.

they should take down the second most senior minister in the Foreign

:10:18.:10:22.

Office in the grounds that Boris Johnson doesn't matter because

:10:23.:10:25.

according to him he is an idiot, and then, he says because Alan Duncan

:10:26.:10:31.

has been proposed union, he wants to take him down. That is quite an

:10:32.:10:34.

inflammatory thing for a department to say. -- to come out. There will

:10:35.:10:41.

be percussions. If he has been sent home, that says a lot. Let's go back

:10:42.:10:48.

to the Observer. The British Red Cross saying Deb is a humanitarian

:10:49.:10:55.

crisis in the NHS may urge to get a grip on the NHS. Is it a

:10:56.:11:03.

humanitarian crisis? It does seem somewhat hyperbolic statement by the

:11:04.:11:09.

Red Cross which in some way diminishing the issues. There are

:11:10.:11:12.

genuine humanitarian crises on the planet and whilst there are issues

:11:13.:11:16.

with the NHS, this doesn't really equate to any of those and I think

:11:17.:11:20.

this is rather foolish and inflammatory language, given there

:11:21.:11:24.

is a clear issues in the way the NHS is one of the moment, the problems

:11:25.:11:30.

being caused by the budgetary position and the pressures the

:11:31.:11:34.

services are under and the hospitals and GPs are having problems. In

:11:35.:11:39.

other circumstances, the government might hold its feet marble more

:11:40.:11:44.

aggressively to the flame than it has been. Things do sound pretty

:11:45.:11:51.

ghastly, record breaking closures in A Department. This one does seem

:11:52.:11:58.

more serious. Things have been building up for some time. You can

:11:59.:12:05.

argue about the funding and so on, and obviously, labour makes a big

:12:06.:12:08.

play of that and the junior doctors you talk to only on this evening,

:12:09.:12:12.

they make a big play of that as well. There is also the underlying

:12:13.:12:17.

problem of more people, the published is getting older, people's

:12:18.:12:20.

general levels of eating and so on are accesses and therefore, there

:12:21.:12:26.

are increased problems of obesity. There are all sorts of problems. And

:12:27.:12:31.

then, you've got GPs under pressure. All those things are combining in a

:12:32.:12:39.

toxic cocktail. It's a complicated problem to solve. We have to give

:12:40.:12:48.

you this one, Mr Lipton. Wayne Rooney, he's smiling, waving,

:12:49.:12:55.

because, tell us why. He has scored his 249th goal for Manchester so if

:12:56.:12:59.

he scores one more, he will be the record-breaking scorer for England

:13:00.:13:05.

and Manchester United and in both cases, he will have overtaken the

:13:06.:13:09.

record set by Sir Bobby Charlton. He could have scored another one. He

:13:10.:13:16.

has done it in far fewer games. About 200 fewer games. It's a

:13:17.:13:22.

terrific achievement, it is proof of his enduring ability and also his

:13:23.:13:29.

longevity. He played his debut for United in 2004, and he has scored

:13:30.:13:35.

goals for 12 years, and he may not be in his prime, may not be the

:13:36.:13:40.

player he was four or five years ago, he still remains and Emma Matic

:13:41.:13:43.

player in English football as well. I think the actual 240 nights, he

:13:44.:13:49.

didn't even kick it, it came off his knee or his shin. He'll take that!

:13:50.:14:04.

As a lifelong Leeds United fan, I can't get very excited. He has done

:14:05.:14:12.

well there have been doubts about where he is going and should he be

:14:13.:14:16.

stepping down so on. There is sign of him slowing down, let's be clear

:14:17.:14:21.

about that. He's not playing very much, is he. Let's see him do it for

:14:22.:14:26.

England. It is easier for him to leave the Manchester United at the

:14:27.:14:29.

end of this season with a record than it would have been if he had

:14:30.:14:34.

been one or two short still. I think it will be a good way for him to go.

:14:35.:14:38.

I know you too wanted to talk about this, as all the in the Sunday

:14:39.:14:45.

Telegraph. One of my BBC colleagues, misidentified a mountaineer. Why are

:14:46.:14:52.

you so keen to talk about this? Only because it is really funny. It is

:14:53.:14:59.

there are two martins in the room. I haven't had a top so far, Mr Lipton.

:15:00.:15:08.

He thought he was talking to a mountaineer and in fact he wasn't

:15:09.:15:13.

but it was actually really fun television because everyone realised

:15:14.:15:15.

very early on there had been a mistake and they laid, it was good.

:15:16.:15:21.

He was a row. Gentlemen, you have been great, two martins, I'm not

:15:22.:15:27.

even going to save their other names, thank you very much indeed.

:15:28.:15:30.
