The Mirror has predictions of travel, is this bank holiday weekend


as millions are addicted to clog the Lords. And the Guardian approach for


cars on the bad minister to rethink our thoughts on foreign students, as


figures show that less than 5000 at stake their Visa. Lester Bento at


least some of those over the last ten minutes.


The express is basically saying that migration has fallen since EE you.


I'm not sure that would be a big surprise to be honest. They are


calling it able Brexodus, with lots of people leaving you in and gone


back to Europe. They are at the lowest level for three years, and


the express is sort of celebrating this, and it is saying now we have


to leave you... Of course, more than half of aggression was from the EU


in the first place. We could have stopped that altogether, it was


nothing to do with the EU, but there is a net migration figures, because


part of the reason for the dissatisfaction that led to believe


what was probably to do with the number of people coming to this


country. They express has patched a story in a particular way, Edward


nominally emphasise that this was their first evidence of Brexit, even


though we haven't looked yet left, and it also contradicts some of the


claims being made that it will be difficult to get staff, and there


might be star sorted is and so on until poor. And it points out that


migration from the EU is higher than it was for the Eastern European


states key men and things like this. You hang that there might be other


takes on this. Take us to the FT. They have a different take. And in


my opinion, a more balanced it. It covers it more comprehensively, the


point about overseas students that Ros mansion. It points out that it


was believed that 100,000 overseas didn't overstayed, in fact the


actual figure is 4600. That is greater dramatic fall. It is quite


interesting that in the express the same story is presented the


Government closing down bogus colleges, largely, this just seems a


long piece of counting summer. You'd bridges that many overseas student


of a saint by closing down bogus colleges. Inmates also the point


that already there has been a 17% fall in farm workers applying to,


during the summer, and for people wanting to take up jobs in nursing,


so there is quite impact there of the people not staying on, wanting


to leave, and therefore the impact on the economy. It could be quite,


tip. I think the most important thing for me in this story is that


employers are becoming seriously concerned. This EBI and enter Judah


directors have both expressed concerns today. Serious concerns


about struggling to recruit enough workers to do the work that needs to


be done if business is to be able to continue as it has been. There is a


real downside to the emigration story, which is every can't get


enough skilled workers coming in, or enough workers coming and to do the


jobs that we needed doing, then that will have a real serious impact on


the economy, potentially. And employers are saying that EU


citizens seem to be very nervous about overcoming here sting here and


a way that they haven't seen before, and they want the Government to


clarify what EU workers' rights are going to be, and of course that is


what the Government and a EE were trying to do. The figures are that


the unemployment rate is a loss since 1975. Brexit supporters would


say that is as law, but that sell these is significant number of


people without a job, so why can't those vacancies be filled by British


people? They haven't got the skills. You are not going to get to 0%. This


is an important one, actually, because the Prime Minister has come


under a great deal of pressure from people with an Reina party to


exclude students from the numbers of net migrants. And she wants to count


them still. She has insisted so far that they should be counted, but


this story is that the way in which the Government has tried to justify


keeping the numbers of students included has been exposed as a bit


of a mad. Even Nicky Morgan they think that the reasons given gone


ring true. For example, the Government has said that it believed


up until now that about 100,000 students who have come here to study


don't go back after full stop in fact, the latest figures suggest


that the true number is only 4600. If we can be sure that the students


coming here do actually go back, then they are not truly emigrants at


all, and in fact... The problem again is that fewer students are


gradually coming and. 27,000 fewer students have applied to study at


British universities. This is the central question. Yes, you don't


want students to oversee, but what about those who want educated here,


because that dividend is a generational dividend. The local


home, they will have been linked with this country. That is what


other highly developed societies do, that is what America does. Every


don't take that into account, we are paying a curious numbers game which


actually can be various misleading. It is also crucial for the


universities, because the universities rely on overseas


students coming in to help their budget. Let's talk about those who


might be going to university in the future and those who have done their


GCSEs. Girls outperforming boys. They kind of do every year. This is


the new grading system. We have gone away from the old one. Nine to me


suggest to me that somebody gets 9%. What is and testing is that the


girls that have done well have got 60% on grade nine, but at the same


time, the overall pass rate has sank to their lowest level in nearly a


decade, so I think this is a system that has been, if you like, tested,


and I think these results don't actually give us eco-as to how well


it is working. Which is how bound to be the case. That is what they


headteachers are saying. Reversing this sheer scale of the changes


means you can't really compare the results this time than with the


previous results, and the whole system has got to bed down. Only


three subjects have changed. Everything else has been the same.


It is only endless language, English literature and maps that have got


the new gradings. -- English language. It is important to say


that the A-level results as usual that buys had overtaken girls. We're


catching up. In the mail, page,. -- page two. This is also something


that the Prime Minister has been signalling for quite some time,


which is that she once too, if you like, have justification for the


extremely high-level paid for some top executives, so forcing companies


to publish the ratio for top bosses' paid to the pay of the average


worker. Also, Greg Clark was together workers more say in the


boardroom. I actually think that that is a really good idea, it is


something that Germany does very well. They have unions and workers


represented on their board, it much more collegiate, collaborative


approach, and actually that could be very good for British business, I


suspect. But they have backtracked from that. The Prime Minister's


original proposals were more far reaching. I think this is a very


good thing if they can do it, but they need to do it, because our


accounts historically have not presented much information on what


people are boardroom level down. They have given it in a very cryptic


fashion, you would have to be quizmaster to figure it out. As you


know, and this is part of the unease in our society, that the disparity


in income between those who are well of and those who are not well of, we


are not using that Fresno from the Prime Minister balances that it is


going, and that is a bad thing for society. And also, reward for


failure is something that people can accept. Very often you see that


failing companies are still banking huge sums. Let's go to the roads,


and the front of the Telegraph. Driverless lorries to hedge UK


roads. This is going to be lorries in convoys. Protruding, it has been


called. The first lorry will have a driver, the next two will not have a


driver, but there will be a driver setting and niqab. They will be


going along, and it is worrying the motoring industry. They are worried


that this could cause an enormous amount of problems, because it might


have skewered the exits. This will be quite interesting. There's might


involve football formation. Hybrid at work, I don't know? I am glad you


have introduced some sport! Are you feeling uneasy about this? I we have


to be mindful about what the motoring organisation say, they are


the experts. Apparently they can't bite would be about the length of


half a flip up edge. You might not be able to see road sign. This has


already been done in America. Yes, but American motorways are very


different. And them to raise are not as crowded, say you cannot


necessarily say that it is fined over there so it is OK already are.


I think we have to be cautious. Drivers who use their mobile phones


as sat nav is no rest being banned from the road. I think this is


really frightening. People do need to use their sat nav is, and the


point is that even if you are touching the screen to change your


route, and you attach your sat nav if you needed to change at it, you


will get six points. Surely you should start before you touch it?


The phone sat nav 's are much better sometimes than the other ones. That


is the problem. If you are driving on a motorway, that is the problem.


True. On that note of uncertainty, thank you both very much.
