Tonight on This Week, the nation struggles to get


I'm going nowhere fast, just like my TV career.


Strike fever hits the planes, the trains and the automobiles,


but intrepid reporter Miranda Green shows great initiative


Come hell or high water, I've got to get to the This Week sofa.


A doctor Saleyha Ahsan returns from an emergency trip


She says talk of a humanitarian crisis in the NHS


Sorry, Theresa May, but you're wrong, the NHS is facing


a humanitarian crisis, and I see it every day


And if the winter of discontent is getting you down, don't despair.


Hypnotist and mind bender extraordinaire Paul McKenna will put


I've been trying to stay upbeat but this show


You're going the wrong way. Bloody idiot. You're going in the wrong


direction. We're not going the wrong way. He's been on the Blue Nun.


Andrew, help! Let me begin by wishing


y'all a happy new year. And let me be clear,


happy new year means happy new year. It's not my job to give


a running commentary on 2017. It IS my job to give


a running commentary? Well, if that's the case what's


the point of Newsnight? we await news of the latest


Kompromat, the salacious and compromising material


the Kremlin has been gathering We know they've got a lot


on our Michael, which is why he's given up his political career


and circles the globe alone by train, like


an Ancient Mariner on tracks. And they obviously have a lot


on Diane because she's now a leading light in the Corbyn Project,


which is as good a way of ending your political career


as spending most of your life on the 06.13 milk train


from Chipping Sod-Off Speaking of folks on the trail


to nowhere, we're joined by two people who've got one thing


in common with Meryl Streep. Donald Trump thinks


they're both overrated. Chris #OhItsNotEdBalls Leslie,


and Michael #choochoo Portillo, who made it here only because he can


open his own doors. Your moment of the week? Well, I


thought the resignation of Sir Ivan Rogers, our ambassador to the


European Union. It struck me that people like him, Mandarin, who are


accountable only through politicians to the public, have been in bedding


us in the European Union for the last 50 years. So they are actually


the sort of people the British people voted against in the


referendum. But it also strongly illustrated that one of the problems


the government has is how on earth to set about negotiating a Brexit


using mandarins, Foreign Office officials and other departments, who


absolutely do not believe in Brexit. It is a massive institutional


problem. My guess is we will have two years of inconclusive


negotiations followed by a political settlement. We shall see. Chris,


your moment of the week? Probably the contrast between Obama's


farewell speech in Chicago and Donald Trump's press conference in


New York. Because you had two presidents with a very different


message. Obama, talking about the importance of defending


representative democracy and citizens taking their


responsibility, and Trump sort of laying into the intelligence


agencies, the media. Not Putin, though, who got away without


criticism. It was quite a contrast. Shape of things to come.


The NHS took centre stage in our political discourse this week,


Some hospitals say they're failing to cope with demand, some NHS staff


Experts talk of a crisis and this time we're inclined to believe them.


We're waiting longer for ambulances, waiting longer for treatment once


they get us to A, and resources are being stretched


As winter shows its icy teeth, will parts of the NHS crumble under


the pressure, or will we continue to muddle through?


Here with her Take of the Week is A doctor and former


As an Army officer, I felt the anxiety and pressure when deployed


on military operations like Bosnia. Now, as a doctor working in


emergency medicine, I frequently get that same feeling. I recently


travelled on an aid mission to the Syrian- Turkish border, helping


build a children's hospital. Believe me, I know what a humanitarian


crisis is. When I heard the situation in the NHS described as


one, I wasn't baffled or outrage, I agreed. The Red Cross description


isn't irresponsible or overblown, as Theresa May claims. It's


proportionate. Anyone who has had to face the anxiety of more and more


patients rushing into resuscitation when there isn't any space will


understand this. What are we going to do when we run out of ambulance


space and corridor space? At least in the military they had resources


and the will to throw at a situation. In A it feels we are


hanging by a thread, ready to snap at any time. Yes, the NHS needs more


funding. Yes, we need more doctors, but we also need to sort out social


care. The last government reduced what was available in the community.


Now, most elderly patients, when discharged from hospital, are soon


back, trapped in a revolving door. The Health Secretary tries to


reassure us, but he has already lost the confidence of the NHS workforce,


and the British public might not be far behind. His position is


untenable. Without a radical action, like any other humanitarian crisis


this could spiral out of control and risk more lives.


Special thanks to mayhem paint bawling in Essex for letting us


film. Welcome. We have just managed to thaw you out in the last few


hours. Thank you for joining us. Let's get rid of the nomenclature of


matter. The NHS is undoubtedly being stretched, in some cases to breaking


point, as we can see, but does it make sense, does it help the debate


to compare it to places like Aleppo? When I first heard that news story I


was actually on my way into a shift at 8am. I was driving in last


Saturday from eye weekend shift. I had already been on for about three


days and we had been rammed. Round? We were rammed. We were busy, very


busy. I was driving in, I was still a little bit tired. I had not had


much downtime between busy shifts. When I drove in and heard that


headline I thought, that is about right. And I can qualify that,


because I have worked in humanitarian situations before. So


when I say, yes, I think it's comparatively, its comparator with


the way it makes me feel, the feelings it evokes when we are busy,


when resuscitation is full and the nurses are coming up to you and


saying, which of these very sick people is the least sick, to take


out, so we can move another one in? And she is pointing at you to make


that decision. That is not far off some of the other situations I have


been in. I understand what you are saying. The NHS is always in some


sort of crisis but is this different, is it stretched in some


places to breaking point? I find that difficult to judge and so does


the Prime Minister. I think this comparison with a humanitarian


crisis has been very unhelpful. I think because on the whole people


will not believe it. I mean, you have talked about comparable


feelings, but that is not what we think of in a humanitarian crisis.


We think of vast numbers at imminent risk of death, starvation, being


bombed, whatever. I think the comparison has been unhelpful and it


gave Theresa May rather an easy time because she could say in an outraged


way, to make this comparison is ridiculous. I can perfectly


understand the frustration of people in the National Health Service. It


is not just frustration, it is concerned. I can also understand the


frustration of the government because as you say, we have been


here so often before. The NHS was asked how much money it needed, at a


time when there was an election and they asked for 8 billion, which the


government came forward with. And now they are being told they cannot


cope. The government also has a right to say, hang on, if we did


what we were asked to do, how is it that you are not able to manage?


Simon Stevens, the chief Executive of the NHS, went before a select


committee. Quite amazing scenes. He was literally holding up a copy of


the daily may and saying, basically, we are lagging behind the rest of


Europe. This is effectively a civil servant. From my own experience in


Nottingham, a big teaching hospital, emergency department, year after


year we get further from this 95%, four our waiting target. The Health


Secretary, Johnny Hunt, is saying maybe the target is wrong, but it is


a good litmus test for the strain in the NHS. It has been abandoned in


practice. He says he will exclude non-urgent, which is an atrocious


way of dealing with the problem. If you can't hit the target, move the


target. It is very stressful for a lot of people. Hospitals, it seems,


in this particular crisis in the NHS, have become the new front line.


People are flooding into A because they cannot get a GP appointment.


But hospitals are also chock-a-block because social care has been cut,


and particularly elderly patients can't be released into care.


Absolutely. So when I come onto a shift, the first thing I do is look


at the board. Do I have white squares that are empty on the board,


or have all of those white squares got a name on them? And most of


them, if it is a day when it is full, quite a few of them will have


been patients who have been seen, accepted even the day before. We


have to write the date and time, and it is sometimes even the day before.


These are often people who we have been unable to move into the


hospital itself, because the hospital is full. So many of the


patients I have seen in the last two months, a fair proportion have been


elderly people who have nowhere else to go, or they have been seen,


discharged a few days before and they are back two days later. The


NHS got what it asked for for this year, but is not getting what it


asked for for upcoming years, which is why, per capita funding in the


NHS is going to start to fall for the first time, really, in the NHS'


history. There was also a 4.5 billion cut in social care which


creates the problem of elderly people in beds in hospitals,


probably the worst place for them in many cases, with nowhere to go. It


seems to me, is it not indisputable that more money is required for the


NHS and for social care? I don't know whether that is indisputable. I


think if you were in government you would feel rather impatient that one


demand after another is made. If I were in government I would feel very


impatient. The man should be running the show, asked for a certain amount


of money and was given it, then goes in front of Parliament and starts


attacking the Prime Minister. We have just heard that one of the


elements is that GPs, apparently, some of them are shutting surgeries


at 3pm. What is Simon Stevens doing to manage that? Not everything can


be decreed by a Prime Minister. I have to speak up for my GP


colleagues. I have two sisters who are GPs. They are overrun and


overstretched. I don't know about those shutting at 3pm, but on the


whole they are worked to the hilt. But I thought you agreed that one of


the problems was that GPs were not taking patients who are being


diverted to hospitals. It is social care in the community, the whole


spectrum. You don't always need a GP at home for some of the things we


discharge patients for. Package of care, levels of care that we can put


in place. That can take, that is not a quick process. It can take a bit


of time. And until that is setup, the patients are often with us. What


we used to have in place were convalescence homes, for example,


community hospitals, cottage hospitals, something that is a


stopgap between acute medical and going home.


You have to see the thing as a whole. In the Health Service, it's


vastly more because you have the drugs budgets going up And plus the


demands are much from the population. That is the problem.


What is to be done is the question. As you look around the richer


European economies, Germany spends 11% of its GDP on health, Sweden the


same, France about the same as well. We are more like 9.5%, but where is


the political will to get up to that standard and what reforms will be


demanded and where would the money come from? Personally... My guess


would be the countries that are spending more, they are spending


from different pockets of money. Germany, Trade Unions played an


important part. More of an insurance? Yes. Although all money


in the end comes from the people, there's only one sort of money, it


really does make a difference if you have different pots from which the


money can come. I think it's not sufficient for Simon Stevens to say


the Germans are spending more, I think you would have to say, what


sort of reform would enable us to get to that level of contribution.


After all, the country in the world that spends the most on health is of


course the United States. But you see, don't forget, a lot of that is


administrative bureaucratic payments, the great beauty of the


NHS is that it's getting money to the frontline. My own view is it's


by partisanship for the cross party long-term serious grown-up politics


about how we are going to fund social care issues, not just NHS.


Remember, back when you were Shadow Chancellor I think you came straight


after Gordon Brown in 2002 or around then, you had that 1% increase on


national insurance which was actually a very popular move because


it was ringfenced for the NHS. Now, there are some difficult decisions


we have got to start talking about and be grown up about. A final word


from you, is it fundamentally money or are there structural changes that


have to be made too? What we don't need are more very expensive


top-down reforms that cost lots of money. What we don't need or do? We


don't need lots and lots of money going into restructuring systems.


You have had a lot of that. We have had a lot of that and that's


contributed to some of the situation we are in now. We are having around


?50 million being spent on this new role of physician associates or


whatever the half doctors they're called or whatever. What is the


headline? Number one, listen to the workforce, we say it's akin to a


humanitarian crisis because it is and it's not said lightly. Two,


cross party solution. It's got to be taken out of the political point


scoring system that it is now. We need a sensible approach and this


means everyone in. The third one? If you do not want to be getting the


backup of the workforce that you are relying on, so if the doctors say


you can't stretch us across seven days, don't try to.


Thank you for being with us. This time tomorrow I'll be two hours into


my night shift and I hope that you are right, that we are not in a


humanitarian crisis, I would love you to be right. Thank you very


much. Now it's late, Moscow's


Ritz Carlton late. But enough about watersports,


we're all about a new-found zen Chris has stopped sticking pins


in his Jeremy Corbyn doll For those of you now desperately


trying to get rid of the idea of Michael in a downward dog


position, we've got hypnotist extraordinaire Paul McKenna


waiting in the wings. So join our sharing,


caring cuddly society, bring us your Twitter troubles,


heal your Facebooboos because it's 2017 and we're


all about the snapcheer. High anticipation here at This Week


because it's the awards season. The Golden Globes, the Baftas


and London Men's Fashion Week, not that Michael


takes any notice of that. Jeremy Corbyn must surely win


an award for his starring Simon Stevens is shortlisted


for his controversial And Mark Carney's screeching U-turns


on the risks of Brexit in the latest Fast and Furious movie have Leavers


goggle-eyed as they munch But we were dismayed


when Donald Trump named Buzzfeed We really thought we had


that one in the bag. At least Britain's back


in the premier league Here's Miranda Green


with her round up of the week. I've only got 17 hours to get


to the This Week studio. As commuters battled


through the strikes, the PM started her New Year


by unveiling the shared It was an announcement


on mental health services. The mental health pledge was


overshadowed by a row about the NHS. At PMQs, Jeremy Corbyn told Mrs May


that she was in denial. She chose to attack


the Red Cross for calling it We've all seen humanitarian


crises around the world, and to use that description


of a National Health Service which last year saw 2.5 million more


people treated in Accident Emergency than six years ago,


was irresponsible and overblown. The Prime Minister might not


like what the Red Cross said, but on the same day,


the British Medical Association said conditions in hospitals


across the country are reaching The Royal College of Nursing


has said NHS conditions The Royal College of Physicians has


told the Prime Minister the NHS is underfunded,


under doctored and overstretched. If she won't listen to the Red


Cross, who will she listen to? Maybe the shared society


means sharing hospital May retorted, you can't fund health


and social without a strong economy. As the long, long journey


towards Brexit continues, debate rages over how to read


the economy's vital signs. And Mrs May confirmed that leaving


the EU will mean an end I've consistently said


that the referendum vote was a vote for us to change that freedom


of movement, was a vote for us to bring control


into our immigration system for people coming from


the European Union. There's a variety of ways


in which that can be done but I'm clear that that is part


of what we need to deliver. The Labour leader also seemed


to travel a long way from his original support


for untrammelled EU immigration. At least, that's what he


might have been saying. No one, not even his


MPs, was quite sure. We are not wedded to free movement


from the EU as a point of principle but I don't


want to be misinterpreted. The Transport Secretary was pictured


with some of the poor, Commuters, that is,


battling along the concourse We need to stop these strikes and


stop disrupting passengers' lives. There are lots of things to sort out


on this railway but we can't do that while they are on strike and working


to rule almost every day. Labour blamed the rail operator,


and Jeremy Corbyn told the BBC he'd happily join the strikers,


unlike the Labour Mayor Would you join the Southern


Rail picket line? Yes, I would, because I think


Southern Rail have behaved Right, never mind the trains,


let's try the tube. Those Uber bosses


must be raking it in. The President-elect had a few other


inconveniences on his mind, namely allegations that Russia


is holding compromising Mr Trump chose to attack America's


spies as possible sources That nonsense that was released


by maybe the intelligence agencies, who knows, but maybe


the intelligence agencies, which would be a tremendous


blot on their record, if they in fact did that,


tremendous blot, because a thing like that should never


have been written. It should never have been had


and it should certainly Can you get me to


Westminster, Dobbin? But there was no deal


in Northern Ireland where Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness


resigned over a scandal involving the DUP First


Minister, Arlene Foster. We in Sinn Fein will not


tolerate the arrogance Sinn Fein wants equality


and respect for everyone. That is what this


process must be about. The sky's looking clouded,


the horizon's bleak and Dobbin Miranda made it! But the horse


didn't. Welcome. Michael, the Prime Minister gave a New Year interview


at the weekend, traditional one, not on the BBC this time. Are we nigh


the wiser what Brexit will look like -- are we any the wiser. Yes, I


think we are. It seems to me that for as long as the European Union


holds to the idea that free movement of people is fundamental, then we'll


not be in the single market. I don't think we'd want to be in the customs


union because that restricts the deals we can do with the outside


world, and then I think that leaves the question that if we are outside


the single market and the customs union, will the European Union want


to put up tariff barriers against their own trade into Britain and our


trade out of Britain into the European Union. That will take a


couple of years to resolve. How do you know though, she didn't say much


of that, did she? Well, I think she has. When she first said Brexit


meant Brexit, I think she meant there wasn't going to be a second


referendum and secondly, she was obliged to come back from the


negotiations with Parliamentary sovereignty restored and in


particular, that would mean control of the borders. So if our European


Union partners insist that free movement of people is a condition of


being part of the single market, then part of the single market we


cannot be. She's glifring a major speech on Brexit on Tuesday --


delivering. I'm told they are having trouble getting to the first draft,


it's Thursday. Reassuring. Surely she has to give us some idea in this


speech of what Brexit would look like in her mind? I think that's


right. But I think actually we did edge clearer, as Michael was saying,


in her Sunday interview. On the single market? Versus freedom of


movement, also her mood music, if you look at all her speeches since


becoming PM and at the Home Office, it's clear that she thinks a


compromise that we put on... Political mistake. So we are out of


the single market in terms of membership, but we seek as wide an


access as we can get. We don't think we are out of the customs union? No,


and Philip Hammond having been in Germany this week trying to reassure


the Germans that Britain wants to make sure that Brexit doesn't damage


the rest of the EU economy and if it's all done in as friendly and


mutually agreeable way as possible and also of course this week we had


the rather interesting intervention from Mark Carney changing his tone


quite a lot on Brexit and no longer being the major risk to the British


economy. The U-turn introductions like fast and furious. Absolutely


there. 'S been change so people will need to clarify things. The


Government expects to lose its appeal I suspect to the Supreme


Court, meaning that Parliament will have to trigger Article 50. Is there


any doubt that it will? Well, I think most MPs want to


respect the result of the referendum but that does not mean this isn't a


moment to make sure we do not go careering off the cliff edge in


April 2000 19. I think the point of the Article 50 legislation is a


series of legitimate amendments to be discussed, just to ensure that


the government are doing the right thing in terms of tariff - free


access to the single market. The government would want that but may


not be able to negotiate it. We are about to trigger this thing where we


have no idea about what the objectives of the government should


be. For example, I think there should be a clear objective of


getting a transitional period. The head of the stock exchange yesterday


was talking about five years because you need that business certainty,


rather than just falling off that age. I am already thinking about the


series of amendments that could be viable. This is something where


there are different views across different parties. Could go on


forever, could be another Maastricht Treaty. I doubt it. I think the


clause bill to trigger Article 50 will move through both houses fairly


swiftly because in the end Labour MPs do not want to be in a position


where they could be accused by constituents, who mainly voted to


leave, of trying to sabotage the whole thing. When it gets to the


House of Lords, the Lords will not want to be in a position where the


government creates a number of Tory peers necessary carry the


legislation, which almost certainly could not be done without having a


another general election, in which the Labour Party would be


annihilated. One thing which will concern Mrs May is the crisis in the


NHS and the other is the strikes, particularly if you live in London


and the south of England. These are two challengers the Prime Minister


faces, crisis NHS, crippling transport strikes. What is the


evidence that she has any clue what to do about either? I think that


governments generally muddle through the NHS chaos each winter. They


somehow come out the other side and then the cycle is repeated the


following year. She might not be right to think that is what is going


to happen, but it may be what is going to happen, and it might be


what the government strategy is. As for the strikes, I think the


government absolutely has to win this. I know it is a dispute between


management and unions but obviously the government is on the side of the


management and believes the union is behaving irresponsibly. And there,


at some point the government may have to take action. But we don't


yet know. Labour has had U-turns on pay caps and free movement this


week, both of them in the space of 12 hours. It is quite hard to keep


up with it, if you are a journalist. Have mainstream Labour MPs like


yourself decided to let Corbyn be Corbyn and not influence what he


says, just let him get on with it? There was a relaunch. Jeremy was


being Jeremy, as you say, and that is kind of what we got this week.


The thing is, I think a lot of Labour MPs have spotted Theresa May


Bosz complete failure to grasp the seriousness of the NHS crisis and we


are very keen that that should be our primary area of focus so there


is exhaust rate when sometimes things get diverted, the


spokesperson goes off talking about Nato or whatever. But have you


decided to let him call the shots, wherever it leads your party, you


did not want him elected and tried to get him unelected, that failed.


Now, if he wants to talk about caps, saying it is wrong to put British


troops in Eastern Europe, is it just, let him get on with it?


Because it seems to me that is now your strategy. I think a lot of


Labour MPs recognise that members have made their decision and so it


is for the leader to lead and take responsibility for his views and to


answer what he thinks on pay caps and so forth. But where there are


things that need to be said, a lot of Labour MPs will not be afraid to


say that. For example, on high pay issues, whilst of course there is a


problem, and a lot worse since the FTSE 100 Chief Executive is up 30%


since 2010, but I personally think it is better to go down the


progressive taxation discussion and have an evidence led approach,


rather than necessarily dreaming up a random cap. Let me finish on the


gift that keeps on giving, Mr Trump. Instead of cowering before the


media, or trying to conciliate it, which most politicians do, Donald


Trump just thumps the media on the nose when it offends him. Could this


catch on? Maybe. I hope not. Other politicians might think this is the


way to do it. Watch it! I would hope that maybe journalists in Washington


would become braver in backing each other up. At the press conference


there was a suggestion on Twitter which I thought was excellent which


is that if he refuses to answer questions from one news


organisation, everyone else asks the same question, giving him nowhere to


run. That is like herding cats. Yes, but they could have a go. It is very


clever what he does. I think it is extremely clever and very


sophisticated because he basically lets people understand that any


emanation from any media organisation is the same and not to


be trusted. You muddy the waters to an extent where people don't


believe... We do not know the status of these allegations, but even


legitimate criticisms then have no weight. If it works, it will catch


on, so we will watch out for ourselves. Miranda, thank you.


No, I'm not taking up wakeboarding or scuba diving or any other


My New Year's resolution is to make this failing pile of garbage


So it's out with the snowflake naysayers who ran This Week's


And in with an upbeat production team, family,


friends and sycophants who I can really trust.


Who else but the young, talented Ms Iris Bailey?!


We will be the greatest TV producers God ever created.


That's why we're putting positivity in this week's spotlight.


Are you, like our Home Secretary, struggling to stride


Why not follow the Prime Minister's confident lead?


This Government has a plan, not simply to manage our withdrawal


from the European Union, but to take this opportunity


to fundamentally change Britain for the better.


Even President Obama was upbeat about the future as he bid


And that's why I leave this stage tonight even more


optimistic about this country than when we started.


He wasn't as positive as his successor on Wednesday.


I will be the greatest jobs producer that God ever


created and I mean that, I'm going to work very hard.


Thank you Donald and welcome everybody to the first


Not everyone is rosy about the year ahead.


Nigel Farage thinks Mrs May might botch Brexit.


I honestly don't see this Prime Minister has got the energy,


I'm worried and I fear a very frustrating 2017.


Over in La La Land, Meryl Streep's miserable about Mr Trump.


So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners


and if we kick 'em all out, you'll have nothing to watch


Paul McKenna, you're a self-help guru.


Have you got any words to cheer up the This Week team?


How dare you even think you can compete with me,


And Paul McKenna joins us now. Welcome to the programme. Are you


feeling positive about 2017? Actually, I am. I am feeling


positive generally. I have had some challengers over the last few years


but had a lot of good things happen. I recently got married. I had been


living in the United States but decided to relocate here. I have a


number of projects lined up for the year. I have been boring myself on


radio and television with my new book, which is about getting control


of sugar. I am passionate about that because I believe it is important.


So you are in a positive state of mind, but are you positive because


good things are happening, what around you makes you positive, or


can you just have a state of mind that is positive whatever is


happening? What we find from research is that people have a


perceptual filter, or a reality tunnel, a way of looking at the


world. Some people, because of their upbringing, possibly their genetics,


they are naturally more positive than others. Some people have a


tendency to be depressed and that can be again a chemical imbalance in


the brain, or just unfortunate and terrible things that happened


earlier in life. When I became interested in self-improvement it


was because I wasn't feeling good about myself. I remember there was


one day in particular, I was sent to interview the local hypnotist when I


was working in radio. I was interested in yoga and meditation


but I was sceptical. I had broken up with my girlfriend, people were


keeping me awake at night, I had a row with my boss, one of those days.


I sat down and he said, I am not going to interview you, I'm going to


hypnotise you because you look worn out and stressed. I said, let the


healing begin. I was benevolently sceptical about half an hour later I


felt less burden and very optimistic about the future. I said, have you


got any books on this. I went away and read them and my life changed.


Are you in a positive frame of mind? Me? I have my moments. I think part


of positivity is having a go and working towards it. And you can


reach it if you work hard. As a Labour MP, contributing to the


community helps keep you positive. Are you a positive state of mind


chap? I am. I have a wonderful life. I have a to reflect career. What I


do for a living, which is basically travelling by train, which you make


fun of in every programme, it is so much fun. It is free publicity for


you. Do I get a free drink from it? Never. That is why I am not


positive. I would like to be but there is never any payback. I think


Paul is going to make you even more positive and feel even more


wonderful. Are you going to move over there? I get asked this a lot.


People say, what is the one thing that will turn the round? Not just


people who are down. Many people I work with are already high


achievers. They say, I want to feel even better. OK, so what we are


going to do is very simple. It comes in three stages. We are going to


clean up anything from the past. No details, keep it private, anything


that might be holding you back or was majorly upsetting. Then, I'm


going to get in touch with your values, what is important to you,


and then we will lock in some things you would like to have happen in


2017 and put them in your mind in a way that makes them feel tangible,


so that you suddenly feel more optimistic and driven. OK.


Brilliant. OK, think about something, don't tell me what, think


about anything that holds you back, any particular series of events.


Close your eyes and tell me when you have located that. I've got it. On a


scale of one to ten, how bad? Three. I need something much bigger. I'm


not sure I have something much bigger. How high? I will give you


six. I will reach over and touch the side of your arms. I would like you


to clear your mind and stop thinking about that and imagine we are


walking on a beach. By touching your arms, it releases more delta waves


in your brain. I would like you to count out loud with each footstep as


you walk on the beach. One, two, three...


I know this looks unusual. Scientific procedure. 15, 16, 17,


18... Feeling the surf. With your eyes closed, keep your head still,


move your eyes laterally to the left, to the right, to the left, to


the right, to the left, to the right, to the left, to the right.


Then what I would like you to do is just think about something you love


to do, something like playing a musical instrument or listening to


music or going to the theatre or watching a film, something like


that. What is one of your greatest hobbies or interests? I like


travelling by train. Yes! And meeting interesting people.


What is it about travelling by train that makes you feel so good? It's so


enjoyable and interesting. We'll stop and relax and come on back up.


When you think about that time, whatever it was, does it seem the


same or does it seem less important? I just feel marvellous thank you


very much, Paul. This is the first part. Great. The next thing is, I


would like you to close your eyes and if it's OK, in your imagination,


because I want to illicit your deepest values. Go to near the end


of your life and imagine you've had a wonderful life as indeed you said


you have earlier, but it's gotten even better than you thought. I


would like you to, looking back if you are OK with it, tell me what


made your life so good. Friends and family or career opportunities or


doing things you like? Tell me about it? It was the enjoyment of great


health and great friendship and terrific times. Great. If you could


give any advice to the you of the future, what would you say? Keep


everything in proportion. Great. Come back from this moment in time


now and I would like you to do one last thing in your imagination.


Imagine it's a year from now and... You've had the best year you've ever


had. Yes. If that's true, what must have happened in the major areas of


your life in your career, relationships, health, hobbies and


interests, in every area of your life, in maybe the spiritual side of


it, any area? Well, it was another lovely year of rail travel and


appearing here with Andrew week after week. Great. And everyone I


knew was just kind of very healthy and very fit. OK. Close your eyes


now and make a big bright picture of you having had a great year and put


it out there a year from now in your mind and then notice the events that


happened before that all the way back to here and now. Good. Then


brighten up the pictures. There you go, sorry about that, a little too


strong. Brighten up the pictures, rich, bright and bold. When you look


at 2017, how good do you feel? I feel fantastic!


LAUGHTER. As bright as Andrew's tie. I feel good. I feel great, thank


you, Paul. You are very welcome. Thank you for letting me demonstrate


my techniques. Lovely, my arms feel floaty. It's the Delta waves. I knew


it must be. Do you wish you had been up there, Chris? I'm feeling left


out. When he said it was a great year, I thought they were going to


play his journey on the train again. Things can only get better. That's


my theme tune as well. When my new life began. We'll stop on a high.


Paul, thank you very much for doing the best you could with Mr Portillo.


That's your lot. That's your lot for tonight folks,


but not for us, we're off to LouLou's for Donald Trump's


amazing and tremendously It will be a golden opportunity


for the President Elect Let's face it, the Donald deserves


a break from the steady flow of vile personal attacks coming


from fake news pedlars. Peeotus assures us it will be


the greatest, yugest, bestest, bigly celebration


of all the greatness that a Trump Presidency


will bring to Amercia. God can take the next four years


off, Donnie's in the White House. Nighty nighty, don't let


the fake news haters bite. If Putin likes Donald Trump, guess


what, folks, that's called an asset, Russia will have much greater


respect for our country when I'm leading it than when other


people have led it. Those states are going


to have a lot of jobs, a lot of security, a lot of good


news for their veterans. I watched yesterday, as you know,


our great senator, who is going to be a great


Attorney General. I think we have one of the great


cabinets ever put together. You're going to be very proud of


what we put forth, We're going to get those costs way


down and we're going to get the plane to be even better,


and we're going to have some competition and it's


going to be a beautiful thing. So many incredible


people coming here. They are going to do


tremendous things, So there's a great spirit


going on right now, a spirit that many people


have told me they've We're going to have a very,


very elegant day. The 20th is going to be something


that will be And I think we're going


to have massive crowds # Clap along if you feel


like a room without a roof # Clap along if you feel that


happiness is the truth.#
