Hello, it's Thursday, it's 9 o'clock, I'm Victoria Derbyshire,

:00:07.:00:09.

Labour's leaked manifesto promises a radical agenda including plans

:00:10.:00:14.

to nationalise the railways, abolish tuition fees

:00:15.:00:16.

The party's campaign co-ordinator says the leak isn't a sign

:00:17.:00:22.

He says he is relaxed about the leak.

:00:23.:00:28.

Leaks happen, they always happen and they probably always will.

:00:29.:00:31.

But the point is there's an opportunity now, we're talking

:00:32.:00:33.

about Labour's policies a week in advance of

:00:34.:00:35.

We'll be live in Westminster with all the details.

:00:36.:00:40.

Also on on the programme today - Olaseni Lewis died after police used

:00:41.:00:44.

multiple force to restrain him in a mental health hospital.

:00:45.:00:50.

His parents tell us about their long fight for justice.

:00:51.:00:57.

And are we heading for a stroke epidemic? We will hear from one

:00:58.:01:08.

young woman in her 20s who says her symptoms were dismissed as a

:01:09.:01:09.

migraine. Welcome to the programme,

:01:10.:01:13.

we're live until 11 this morning. Let us know what you think of the

:01:14.:01:19.

plans in Labour's leaked manifesto. We really interested to hear your

:01:20.:01:28.

views. We're talking about social media

:01:29.:01:31.

gaffes today after the rapper Bow Wow posted suggesting

:01:32.:01:36.

that he was flying to New York People are now posting their own

:01:37.:01:38.

exaggerated claims under We'll show you some

:01:39.:01:43.

of the best ones. Do get in touch on all the stories

:01:44.:01:48.

we're talking about this morning - use the hashtag #VictoriaLive

:01:49.:01:51.

and if you text, you will be charged the BBC has obtained a leaked draft

:01:52.:01:54.

of Labour's manifesto, which promises to nationalise

:01:55.:01:59.

the railways as franchises expire and to abolish

:02:00.:02:01.

tuition fees in England. The document, seen by several

:02:02.:02:03.

newspapers, also pledges to return Royal Mail to public ownership

:02:04.:02:06.

and bring in an energy price cap. Norman Smith is at a labour campaign

:02:07.:02:09.

event in Central London. Well, there is a lot in here, that a

:02:10.:02:24.

lot will say is transformative, radical, how much will be in the

:02:25.:02:31.

actual manifesto next week? Well, Labour folk are not denying the

:02:32.:02:35.

authenticity of the leaked document. But some are incredulous that it has

:02:36.:02:39.

been leaked, because it does seem to be a deliberate attempt to

:02:40.:02:44.

destabilise and damage Jeremy Corbyn, although his people are

:02:45.:02:48.

saying there is not going to be any witchhunt or recriminations, we are

:02:49.:02:51.

relaxed about it, it gives us a chance to talk about policies. He

:02:52.:02:55.

was meant to be here at the poster launch, he has not turned up so he

:02:56.:03:00.

can concentrate on the meeting later today to finalise the details of the

:03:01.:03:04.

manifesto. What did we learn from the draft? We learned that Jeremy

:03:05.:03:07.

Corbyn is going into the election with a vast number of pledges,

:03:08.:03:13.

everything from headline pledges about scrapping tuition fees,

:03:14.:03:19.

building 1 million homes, nationalising the railways, bringing

:03:20.:03:22.

parts of the energy industry back into public ownership. And really

:03:23.:03:27.

small things, like ensuring there is free Wi-Fi on trains, or trying to

:03:28.:03:32.

ensure certain pesticides are not used close to bees. The second thing

:03:33.:03:38.

we learned is that this is a Jeremy Corbyn manifesto, permeated with his

:03:39.:03:43.

views and values. There is to be a more generous benefit system, or

:03:44.:03:47.

employment rights, a bigger role for the state to intervene to cap energy

:03:48.:03:54.

prices, cap rental prices. There are about to be big questions about the

:03:55.:03:59.

costs, how it is an advocate for. This morning, their campaign

:04:00.:04:06.

coordinator was trying to put the best gloss on the leak. There are

:04:07.:04:10.

some really good ideas in this document. This document is not the

:04:11.:04:13.

Labour manifesto, because we have got a small matter of a Klaus 5

:04:14.:04:23.

meeting. The Labour Party as a Democratic party, so the reason why

:04:24.:04:27.

I am not in Greater Manchester with you, but down in London, it is

:04:28.:04:32.

because the Shadow Cabinet meeting with the national executive

:04:33.:04:34.

committee, the Parliamentary Committee of backbench MPs and the

:04:35.:04:40.

trade unions, to go through the draft manifesto and decide what we

:04:41.:04:47.

want as our programme for government. After today's meeting,

:04:48.:04:50.

we will have a clearer picture of what is actually the manifesto. But

:04:51.:04:59.

there are some great ideas in there. Some people are comparing this draft

:05:00.:05:03.

manifesto to Michael Foot's very controversial 1983 manifesto. I

:05:04.:05:07.

think a lot of the focus is going to be on the money question. Can they

:05:08.:05:12.

fund some of the very big spending commitments that they made, such as

:05:13.:05:17.

continuing with the triple lock for pensions, ?8 billion for social

:05:18.:05:22.

care, reversing most of the Tories benefit cuts, including extending

:05:23.:05:25.

personal independence payments, which the Government says will cost

:05:26.:05:30.

about ?4 billion, and that big ticket item, abolishing tuition

:05:31.:05:34.

fees, estimated to cost ?11 billion. There will be a huge focus on how

:05:35.:05:37.

Labour pays for all of this. How will it go down with Labour

:05:38.:05:48.

supporters, but also those that support the Conservatives and Ukip,

:05:49.:05:51.

who Labour have two win over if they have any chance of forming a

:05:52.:06:02.

majority? Actually, the draft manifesto is on the thin side, an

:06:03.:06:07.

immigration, there is no indication that they want to reduce it, no

:06:08.:06:12.

mention of freedom of movement. On Brexit, the manifesto restates that

:06:13.:06:15.

the party accepts the outcome of the referendum. But it says it would not

:06:16.:06:19.

accept no deal. Theresa May has said you have to be able to threaten the

:06:20.:06:25.

rest of the EU that we could walk away if we don't get a good deal,

:06:26.:06:29.

Labour says it is an unacceptable situation. It is not clear that it

:06:30.:06:32.

is the sort of manifesto that will peel back those that deserted the

:06:33.:06:37.

Labour Party over Brexit. I think it might hear generational thing. Maybe

:06:38.:06:41.

people who are older will remember Michael Foot's manifesto of 1983,

:06:42.:06:55.

but some of them might be more interesting to people, bringing the

:06:56.:07:04.

railways back into public ownership. The real criticism will be how do

:07:05.:07:09.

you pay for this? It might be over where you are? Yes, a fairly

:07:10.:07:17.

desolate scene. We seem to be standing on a patch of wasteland. I

:07:18.:07:22.

don't know if you can see the back of Waterloo Bridge, it is not

:07:23.:07:24.

exactly glamour Central. But there you go.

:07:25.:07:34.

The rest of the news, here is a neater.

:07:35.:07:43.

James Comey has made his first public comments since

:07:44.:07:45.

President Trump sacked him as the head of the FBI on Tuesday.

:07:46.:07:48.

In a farewell letter to colleagues, Mr Comey said he wasn't

:07:49.:07:50.

going to "spend time on the decision or the way it was executed."

:07:51.:07:54.

Mr Trump said Mr Comey was fired "because he was not

:07:55.:07:56.

Our correspondent, Laura Bicker has more.

:07:57.:08:00.

Donald Trump may have once embraced the FBI director,

:08:01.:08:04.

It's thought the President's frustration had been

:08:05.:08:12.

He hoped allegations that Russia had meddled in the US election

:08:13.:08:16.

to help him win could be dismissed as "fake news".

:08:17.:08:24.

But the towering figure of the FBI kept the story alive

:08:25.:08:26.

That's why Democrats think Mr Trump fired him.

:08:27.:08:32.

The Russian leader offered his opinion on his way

:08:33.:08:34.

TRANSLATION: President Trump is acting in accordance

:08:35.:08:37.

with his competence, and in accordance with his

:08:38.:08:39.

In a farewell letter, James Comey told his colleagues

:08:40.:08:48.

he wasn't going to spend time on the decision or the

:08:49.:08:51.

And he said the American people should see the FBI

:08:52.:08:56.

as a rock of competence, honesty and independence.

:08:57.:09:07.

Meanwhile, the investigation continues and, back at the centre

:09:08.:09:09.

of it is Donald Trump's former National Security Adviser,

:09:10.:09:11.

He was fired for lying about his contacts with

:09:12.:09:14.

Senators have now issued a formal demand, a subpoena, for any

:09:15.:09:21.

documents detailing his Russian contacts or business dealings.

:09:22.:09:23.

The FBI director may be gone, but the inquiry surrounding

:09:24.:09:26.

Donald Trump's aides and their potential

:09:27.:09:27.

Young people on the latest HIV drugs now have a near-normal life

:09:28.:09:36.

expectancy, according to a new study.

:09:37.:09:39.

say new drug treatments mean many people are now living ten years

:09:40.:09:45.

longer than those who started treatment in the mid 1990s.

:09:46.:09:48.

Their findings show a ten-year increase in life expectancy

:09:49.:09:50.

since anti-retroviral drugs became widely available two decades ago.

:09:51.:09:57.

The Conservatives say they will honour the NATO commitment

:09:58.:09:59.

to spend at least 2% of economic output on defence if they're

:10:00.:10:02.

They have also pledged to increase the budget by at least

:10:03.:10:15.

0.5% above inflation in every year of a new Parliament.

:10:16.:10:17.

Meanwhile the Liberal Democrats are to announce that they'd accept

:10:18.:10:20.

10,000 refugees from Syria every year for the duration

:10:21.:10:22.

Party leader Tim Farron will also say that he is committed

:10:23.:10:26.

to reopening the Dubs Programme for unaccompanied children stranded

:10:27.:10:28.

Throughout the election campaign we'll be putting your questions

:10:29.:10:33.

to politicians from all the main parties.

:10:34.:10:37.

Today at 11:30 we'll be putting your questions to the SNP's

The number of people suffering from strokes across the UK is likely

:10:48.:10:57.

to rise by almost half in the next 20 years, according to a new study.

:10:58.:11:01.

The Stroke Association says it's partly because

:11:02.:11:03.

There are currently 1.2 million people living with the effects

:11:04.:11:06.

of stroke in the UK, with over 100,000

:11:07.:11:08.

We'll be hearing from the Stroke Association and a woman

:11:09.:11:17.

who had two major strokes when she was aged 26 -

:11:18.:11:19.

that's on the programme after 9:30 this morning.

:11:20.:11:25.

A cold-calling firm has been fined a record ?400,000

:11:26.:11:27.

fine for making almost 100 million nuisance calls.

:11:28.:11:32.

Keurboom Communications made unsolicited

:11:33.:11:34.

automated calls relating to road-accident

:11:35.:11:35.

Most of us have received them - cold calls offering anything

:11:36.:11:48.

from help with PPI claims or road accidents, to investing

:11:49.:11:50.

The cold callers play the numbers game, bombarding people in the hope

:11:51.:11:59.

that some will bite and take up their offers.

:12:00.:12:01.

This one company, Keurboom Communications

:12:02.:12:07.

based in Bedfordshire, made almost 100 million automated

:12:08.:12:09.

The calls were about a variety of subjects, including PPI

:12:10.:12:15.

People got numerous calls, often on the same day,

:12:16.:12:22.

Companies are allowed to make marketing calls,

:12:23.:12:27.

but only if you've given permission, such as ticking a box on a form.

:12:28.:12:34.

This company didn't have permission, and so got a record ?400,000 fine

:12:35.:12:36.

You can avoid many nuisance calls by signing up

:12:37.:12:41.

New laws which will allow the directors of cold call companies

:12:42.:12:46.

which broke the rules to be fined should also mean fewer

:12:47.:12:49.

Three women are due to appear in court in London today,

:12:50.:12:58.

charged with preparing a terrorist act and conspiracy to murder.

:12:59.:13:02.

They include 21-year-old Rizlaine Boular, who was shot

:13:03.:13:04.

by police during a raid at a property in Willesden two weeks ago.

:13:05.:13:11.

Seven other people, arrested as part of the investigation,

:13:12.:13:14.

have been released from police custody.

:13:15.:13:21.

David Beckham has made his big screen debut.

:13:22.:13:25.

He was greeted with cheers at the premiere of the new film

:13:26.:13:28.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword in Los Angeles, but the reception

:13:29.:13:31.

for his cameo performance as a soldier in the movie has been

:13:32.:13:34.

You can make up your own mind if you go to see that one.

:13:35.:13:49.

That's a summary of the latest BBC News, more at 9:30.

:13:50.:13:52.

Do get in touch with us throughout the morning.

:13:53.:13:59.

Let us know what you think about the Wallace is in the Labour manifesto,

:14:00.:14:08.

abolishing tuition fees, no immigration target, 100,000 new

:14:09.:14:12.

council homes built each year. All of the caveats, it is just the

:14:13.:14:15.

draft. We will see what makes it into the final document. Carolyn

:14:16.:14:22.

says it looks really good, especially tuition fees, starting to

:14:23.:14:26.

warm to Jeremy Corbyn. Stewart says he sees a series of excellent

:14:27.:14:28.

proposals that would be popular with many voters. One who did not leave

:14:29.:14:34.

their name, leaked deliberately, if you ask me. Assess the fallout and

:14:35.:14:41.

then say it is just a draft. Another says that it is incredibly

:14:42.:14:47.

far-fetched, Labour have become a joke among working-class people.

:14:48.:14:50.

Your views are really welcome and we will feed them into the conversation

:14:51.:14:51.

with our guests. Let's get some sport now with Hugh,

:14:52.:14:53.

and news this morning that the FA have entered the debate

:14:54.:14:56.

about the huge fees earned There has always been a view that

:14:57.:14:59.

agents were the negative side of the game, always looking to make

:15:00.:15:03.

as much money as possible without having a player's

:15:04.:15:06.

best interests at heart. However, there are many players

:15:07.:15:09.

who'd say agents play an invaluable role in representing them,

:15:10.:15:14.

especially in things Whichever way you look at it,

:15:15.:15:16.

it can be a lucrative business. The FA Chairman Greg Clarke has this

:15:17.:15:20.

morning dismissed suggestions there is a moral issue in the game

:15:21.:15:25.

after FIFA, the world governing body, opened an investigation

:15:26.:15:28.

into the transfer of Paul Pogba Mino Raiola is Pogba's agent

:15:29.:15:30.

and he is reported to have earned a rather incredible ?41 million

:15:31.:15:35.

for brokering a world record transfer for Pogba

:15:36.:15:38.

from Juventus last summer. Claims suggest United may have paid

:15:39.:15:39.

Raiola ?22 million directly, Here's Clarke's view

:15:40.:15:42.

on the situation. If Manchester United want to pay an

:15:43.:16:01.

agent that much money, and I do not know, I have not looked into each

:16:02.:16:05.

individual transfer, that is what they are going to pay. They are

:16:06.:16:10.

accountable to their owners and their fans. How much should we pay

:16:11.:16:14.

for players and how much should go to agents as a commercial

:16:15.:16:18.

transaction? If football wants to change that and limit the amount of

:16:19.:16:22.

money agents get, we have to sit down as a game, led by the FA and

:16:23.:16:28.

Some of the Arsenal faithful may have to eat

:16:29.:16:32.

Will he lead their team to Champions Cup football?

:16:33.:16:40.

You may remember Arsenal went through a dreadful run of form

:16:41.:16:43.

It prompted protest marches before home games,

:16:44.:16:46.

even planes with Wenger Out messages.

:16:47.:16:48.

All targeted at Arsene Wenger, who still hasn't told us if he'll

:16:49.:16:50.

be staying at the club for next season.

:16:51.:16:53.

But after reaching the FA Cup final, the club are now three points

:16:54.:16:56.

They beat Southampton 2-0 last night for a fourth win in their last

:16:57.:17:03.

six Premier League outings, thanks to second-half

:17:04.:17:05.

goals from Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud.

:17:06.:17:10.

So this is how the run-in to the end of the season looks.

:17:11.:17:13.

Liverpool in third have just two matches left, Manchester City

:17:14.:17:15.

Arsenal will need one of those to drop points.

:17:16.:17:19.

You'd imagine they'd need three wins from their trip to Stoke this

:17:20.:17:22.

weekend and home games with Sunderland and

:17:23.:17:24.

So that home support at the Emirates could be crucial,

:17:25.:17:28.

and if they do make it there will be a lot of fans

:17:29.:17:31.

returning to the Wenger In section of their support.

:17:32.:17:37.

And talk of a major change to call's biggest event this week.

:17:38.:17:44.

couple of years in golf, whether or not they need a fifth

:17:45.:17:50.

Today marks the start of what has always been dubbed

:17:51.:17:53.

"the unofficial fifth Major" - the Players' Championship

:17:54.:17:55.

And now there is more reason to think it will now be

:17:56.:17:59.

That only genuinely happens when there is universal

:18:00.:18:02.

agreement that a tournament deserves such status.

:18:03.:18:04.

The Open Championship here, the US Open, The Masters and the US

:18:05.:18:07.

PGA are the current four, but give the ?8 million

:18:08.:18:09.

of prize money, the fact it returns to same course

:18:10.:18:11.

every year with some of the best Players in the world means it does

:18:12.:18:15.

But should it get that elevated status,

:18:16.:18:18.

all of that may change, with new markets and new locations

:18:19.:18:20.

such as China, Japan or Australia all options as the sport tries

:18:21.:18:23.

I have got to ask. Our cardigans back in? Were they

:18:24.:18:38.

ever out? Have I missed something? You are

:18:39.:18:44.

looking good. Good morning and welcome to the programme.

:18:45.:18:46.

Good morning and welcome to the programme.

:18:47.:18:47.

The media regulator Ofcom will hear from a US lawyer this afternoon

:18:48.:18:50.

who represents more than 20 people accusing Fox News of racial

:18:51.:18:53.

It is part of a review into whether 21st Century Fox should

:18:54.:18:59.

be allowed to take complete control of Sky.

:19:00.:19:01.

Douglas Wigdor is due to give evidence on behalf of the men

:19:02.:19:04.

Earlier this week another lawyer and an alleged victim of sexual

:19:05.:19:10.

harassment by former Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly also gave

:19:11.:19:13.

Here's a bit more on the background of the allegations

:19:14.:19:18.

Well, we have a contest on billoreilly.com.

:19:19.:19:22.

I'll have a full report when I return.

:19:23.:19:27.

But Bill O'Reilly wasn't coming back.

:19:28.:19:29.

He'd been the main presenter and biggest star on the US TV

:19:30.:19:32.

That came to an end last month when it emerged a number of women

:19:33.:19:38.

had made sexual harassment allegations against

:19:39.:19:40.

Five cases have been settled out of court by O'Reilly and Fox

:19:41.:19:48.

One unnamed black colleague said O'Reilly called her "hot chocolate",

:19:49.:19:54.

We are so happy that he's gone, and he's longer going to be able

:19:55.:20:03.

We are so happy that he's gone, and he's no longer going to be able

:20:04.:20:06.

to spit all of his vile comments and everything that comes out

:20:07.:20:09.

of his mouth that is disparaging not only to women but specifically

:20:10.:20:12.

to black women and black folks all over the world.

:20:13.:20:14.

One of O'Reilly's accusers reported her claims to Fox in early April.

:20:15.:20:17.

In 2013, I experienced sexual harassment as a job applicant

:20:18.:20:20.

Wendy Walsh, a psychologist who appeared on O'Reilly's show,

:20:21.:20:24.

said she refused to join him in his hotel room after

:20:25.:20:27.

O'Reilly then allegedly withdrew the job he had offered her.

:20:28.:20:33.

Fox initially stuck with O'Reilly, but several major sponsors pulled

:20:34.:20:36.

At the end of April, parent company 21st Century Fox

:20:37.:20:43.

O'Reilly said it was tremendously disheartening to leave Fox over

:20:44.:20:49.

It's not the first time the organisation has had to deal

:20:50.:20:54.

Last July, Fox News boss Roger Ailes resigned over similar allegations.

:20:55.:21:01.

The acting Fox News CEO, Rupert Murdoch, has tried to usher

:21:02.:21:04.

in a new era at the channel by issuing an internal memo also

:21:05.:21:07.

signed by his sons saying he's committed to fostering a work

:21:08.:21:11.

environment built on trust and respect.

:21:12.:21:15.

But Murdoch dismissed any concerns about the culture at Fox News.

:21:16.:21:20.

And you don't think Ofcom are going to consider what's

:21:21.:21:28.

It comes at a delicate time for Mr Murdoch.

:21:29.:21:35.

21st Century Fox is trying to buy the remaining 61%

:21:36.:21:38.

The media regulator Ofcom is currently deciding

:21:39.:21:42.

whether the takeover should go ahead or not.

:21:43.:21:48.

Earlier this week Joanna spoke to Wendy Walsh,

:21:49.:21:54.

regulator in this country on Monday to explain to them why she thought

:21:55.:22:00.

they shouldn't allow Ofcom to allow Fox to buy the rest of Sky News.

:22:01.:22:03.

She was an unpaid guest on Bill O'Reilly's show

:22:04.:22:06.

and claims he sexually harassed her after a work dinner.

:22:07.:22:08.

I turned left to go to the bar, thinking we were going to continue

:22:09.:22:16.

I said yes to dinner and I thought I would keep its business and it was

:22:17.:22:29.

an opportunity to be a paid contributor. He told me the chairman

:22:30.:22:34.

was his good friend and they were going to offer me a position as the

:22:35.:22:39.

and the dinner felt like a celebratory dinner.

:22:40.:22:45.

He turned toward the right, toward the hotel rooms.

:22:46.:22:47.

When I said, "Oh, I think the bar's this way," he said, "No,

:22:48.:22:52.

I said, "I'm sorry, I can't do that."

:22:53.:22:56.

And I said, you know, "We're both parents,

:22:57.:22:58.

we're raising girls, we have teenage daughters.

:22:59.:22:59.

Maybe we should model some good choices."

:23:00.:23:02.

And we got to the bar and his demeanour changed

:23:03.:23:07.

from charming to hostile, and he said the words,

:23:08.:23:09.

"You can forget about all the career advice I gave you.

:23:10.:23:11.

So I knew that my days were limited there, and like so many victims

:23:12.:23:17.

of sexual harassment, we women think, I can fix this.

:23:18.:23:19.

I'll let him know I'm not litigious, I'm not going to sue,

:23:20.:23:22.

I'll send him lots of cringeworthy suck-up-to-the boss e-mails,

:23:23.:23:24.

and in fact they tried to defame me by leaking some of these e-mails,

:23:25.:23:27.

but eventually he had an executive producer get rid of me.

:23:28.:23:34.

Did you raise it at the channel? No, because of two reasons. Women of my

:23:35.:23:43.

generation are so accustomed to navigating around these landmines

:23:44.:23:46.

that we have almost normalised sexual harassment. I thought,

:23:47.:23:52.

another one, so I almost sucked it up. Secondly, I did not know as a

:23:53.:23:57.

job applicant I could have the case for sexual harassment. I did not

:23:58.:24:02.

call age are until a New York Times reporter contacted me a few months

:24:03.:24:06.

ago and she was doing an investigation and she found that Fox

:24:07.:24:09.

News had been paying of many women over the years due to lots of

:24:10.:24:13.

different men sexually harassing women and they were unable to talk

:24:14.:24:17.

because they were gag order. I was in the position to tell the truth

:24:18.:24:22.

and I had to make an ethical decision to lie to the New York

:24:23.:24:25.

Times to protect Bill O'Reilly and Fox News or tell the truth and make

:24:26.:24:29.

Let's talk to Douglas Wigdor - who represents more than 20 current

:24:30.:24:35.

and former Fox News employees - he's here now.

:24:36.:24:38.

You are in this country because you are giving evidence to the British

:24:39.:24:46.

media regulator this afternoon, representing 21 alleged victims. If

:24:47.:24:50.

our audience a sense of the allegations they are making. I

:24:51.:24:54.

represent over 20 dedicated men and women who worked or currently who

:24:55.:25:01.

work at Fox News. I refer to 21st century Fox as 18th century Fox

:25:02.:25:05.

because of the systemic, widescale discrimination based on race and

:25:06.:25:09.

gender going on there. I represent a woman who went for an interview with

:25:10.:25:15.

Roger Ailes and at the interview she was asked to turn around to see her

:25:16.:25:19.

appearance and he said he liked what he saw and he called her

:25:20.:25:22.

ex-boyfriend and asked about their sex life. I represent the only black

:25:23.:25:28.

male anchor who try to do positive stories on black America and he was

:25:29.:25:32.

met with resistance by Bill O'Reilly and by other people who were working

:25:33.:25:37.

for Fox News. It is reminiscent with what is going on with the Sun

:25:38.:25:42.

newspaper. I read about this so-called journalist McKenzie, I

:25:43.:25:45.

believe his name is, who referred to a footballer as a gorilla. That

:25:46.:25:50.

happened at the New York Post and another New York robber murder

:25:51.:26:00.

entity. It happened with a former client, who was the made in the in

:26:01.:26:13.

another rape case. This is a statement from a few weeks ago.

:26:14.:26:19.

After a thorough and careful review of the alligators, the company and

:26:20.:26:22.

Bill O'Reilly have agreed he will not be returning to the Fox News

:26:23.:26:27.

Channel. They have got rid of Bill O'Reilly and Rupert Murdoch says

:26:28.:26:32.

nothing is happening at Fox News, ratings are going up and it is

:26:33.:26:37.

sorted. That is why they have an 18th century mentality because the

:26:38.:26:41.

fans are that Bill O'Reilly and Roger Ailes left with over $60

:26:42.:26:47.

million. How is that relevant? He denied the allegations. He says, it

:26:48.:26:51.

is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely

:26:52.:26:56.

unfounded claims. That is the unfortunate reality many of us in

:26:57.:27:00.

the public eye have to live with today. I would ask them to waive the

:27:01.:27:04.

confidentiality clauses that they have entered into with all the

:27:05.:27:08.

victims so the public can see what these people went through. What they

:27:09.:27:13.

allege, which Bill O'Reilly and Roger Ayles denied. That is why Fox

:27:14.:27:19.

News have tried to pay these people off and bind them through

:27:20.:27:22.

confidentiality. You do not know that. They have admitted to the

:27:23.:27:27.

public in terms of race cases and they have said that the head

:27:28.:27:33.

controllers' behaviour was abhorrent. They said the allegations

:27:34.:27:36.

raised were legitimate and abhorrent. What happened is the head

:27:37.:27:44.

lawyer or Fox News knew about these allegations as far back as 2008 and

:27:45.:27:48.

waited many years before they could do anything about it. Bill

:27:49.:27:53.

O'Reilly's lawyer said he had been subjected to a brutal campaign of

:27:54.:27:58.

character assassination being orchestrated by far left

:27:59.:28:01.

organisations bent on destroying O'Reilly for political and financial

:28:02.:28:05.

reasons. Are you part of a left-wing organisation? If I am, someone needs

:28:06.:28:11.

to tell me about it because I am a lifelong Republican because I have

:28:12.:28:15.

been on record during the presidential campaign supporting

:28:16.:28:20.

Donald Trump. I would be quite pressed to be characterised as part

:28:21.:28:25.

of a left-wing conspiracy. What about other left-wing organisations?

:28:26.:28:31.

Do you buy this attack from Bill O'Reilly's attorney? I do not. What

:28:32.:28:37.

people want is equality in the workplace and you have systemic,

:28:38.:28:41.

widespread, industrial scale discrimination based on race, based

:28:42.:28:46.

on gender at the very top levels. When you have a lawyer, who is still

:28:47.:28:50.

there by the way, who has presided over all of these cases, I alone

:28:51.:28:56.

represent over 20 people, I have it all lying and fabricating things?

:28:57.:29:00.

Obviously not. You cannot say obviously not. You need to test it

:29:01.:29:07.

in a court of law. What will you be saying to Ofcom today? Why are you

:29:08.:29:10.

saying 21st-century Fox should not be allowed to buy the rest of Sky

:29:11.:29:14.

TV? I look forward to testing this in a court of law. Have your clients

:29:15.:29:21.

have been to the police? Fox News wants to get these cases into

:29:22.:29:24.

arbitration. They do not want to go into court. They do not want to go

:29:25.:29:30.

into a chamber where nobody can watch the proceedings. I am all

:29:31.:29:36.

about a public airing of these issues. I have never lost a trial.

:29:37.:29:41.

This will not be the first one. You represent 21 of the alleged victims.

:29:42.:29:47.

Have any of them been to the police? These are not criminal acts, they

:29:48.:29:51.

are civil acts in America. The answer is no, these are all things

:29:52.:29:56.

that you can get in the civil system, so they have not gone to the

:29:57.:30:00.

police. I am going to Ofcom this afternoon and the reason is to talk

:30:01.:30:05.

to them about each of these cases. I cannot go into all the detail here,

:30:06.:30:10.

but I will with them and I will let them assess those facts and decide

:30:11.:30:15.

what they want to do with those, but it paints a very bleak picture. When

:30:16.:30:19.

you have Rupert Murdoch saying there is nothing wrong with Fox News

:30:20.:30:22.

because the ratings are good, he has his head in the sand. I agree we

:30:23.:30:28.

have not proven the allegations yet, but with the admissions by Fox, and

:30:29.:30:32.

the court proceedings will continue in court, and the public ear and in

:30:33.:30:36.

America will get to see the legitimacy of these claims. Thank

:30:37.:30:40.

you very much. Representing 21 alleged victims of sexual and racial

:30:41.:30:46.

harassment, who will be talking to Ofcom this afternoon.

:30:47.:30:49.

As research warns of a stroke epidemic, with cases rising

:30:50.:30:53.

by almost half in the next 20 years, we'll be speaking to someone who had

:30:54.:30:56.

The rapper Bow Wow has been caught out bragging on social media.

:30:57.:31:10.

We'll have a look at what he said and remind ourselves of some other

:31:11.:31:13.

Labour's draft election manifesto has been leaked to the press a week

:31:14.:31:25.

Due to be finalised today, the document outlines plans

:31:26.:31:28.

to scrap tuition fees, ban fracking and create some

:31:29.:31:31.

Labour's campaigns coordinator told Breakfast that the leak gives

:31:32.:31:36.

the party an opportunity to talk about their vision for the country

:31:37.:31:39.

but the Conservatives have called it "a shambles".

:31:40.:31:47.

James Comey has made his first public comments since he was sacked

:31:48.:31:56.

as the head of the FBI. He said he was not going to spend time on the

:31:57.:32:00.

decision of the way it was executed. Democrats say they suspect the

:32:01.:32:03.

dismissal is linked to the FBI investigation into alleged links

:32:04.:32:05.

between the Trump campaign and Russia. Mr Trump said that James

:32:06.:32:10.

Comey was fired because he was not doing a good job.

:32:11.:32:16.

Young people on the latest HIV drugs have a near normal life expectancy,

:32:17.:32:19.

according to a new study. Researchers from Bristol University

:32:20.:32:24.

say new drug treatments mean many people are now living ten years

:32:25.:32:26.

longer than those who started Their findings show a ten-year

:32:27.:32:29.

increase in life expectancy since anti-retroviral drugs became

:32:30.:32:32.

widely available two decades ago. A cold calling company has been

:32:33.:32:45.

fined a record ?400,000 for its cold calls. It bombarded people with

:32:46.:32:51.

calls about road accidents and PPI claims over an 18 month period. The

:32:52.:32:55.

fine was given by the information Commissioner's Office, which has

:32:56.:32:58.

already fined 23 companies in the past year. That is a summary of the

:32:59.:33:03.

main news. Now the sport. The FA Chairman Greg Clarke has

:33:04.:33:06.

dismissed claims that agents Speaking at a Fifa Congress

:33:07.:33:09.

in Bahrain, Clarke said club's are entitled to pay agents

:33:10.:33:13.

whatever they see fit after the game's world governing

amidst claims Pogba's agent was paid Arsenal kept their late run

:33:18.:33:20.

for a Champions League place going with a 2-0 win

:33:21.:33:31.

at Southampton last night - Arsene Wenger's side up

:33:32.:33:33.

to fifth now. Jose Mourinho is calling

:33:34.:33:41.

it the biggest night in Manchester United's history

:33:42.:33:43.

as his side defend a 1-0 lead against Celta Vigo in the second leg

:33:44.:33:46.

of their Europa League semi-final. And 48 of the world's top

:33:47.:33:52.

50 golfers line at up at Sawgrass today for the start

:33:53.:33:54.

of the Players Championship with calls made this week to make it

:33:55.:33:56.

the game's fifth major tournament. The number of people suffering

:33:57.:34:04.

from stroke could rise dramatically According to the Stroke Association

:34:05.:34:13.

it's mainly because of But it's a mistake to think stroke

:34:14.:34:17.

only affects older people and the charity says everyone should

:34:18.:34:20.

know what the signs are. Let's talk to Cindy-Janine

:34:21.:34:23.

Sousa-Goncalves, who had two major strokes when she was 26,

:34:24.:34:25.

and Alexis Wieroniey, the Deputy Director of Policy,

:34:26.:34:27.

Stroke Association. These are projected figures. They

:34:28.:34:44.

sound incredibly alarming, set to almost double in the next 20 years.

:34:45.:34:49.

How do you get those projections? The study looked at the global

:34:50.:34:54.

burden of disease index, which is a global index which looks at making

:34:55.:34:59.

predictions, what is happening right now, in strokes and diseases across

:35:00.:35:05.

the world. They took data on the incidents now, population now, and

:35:06.:35:09.

combine that with projections. The projection is what will happen with

:35:10.:35:13.

our population if we do exactly what we are doing now. That means that we

:35:14.:35:17.

need to take more action to prevent strokes now to prevent this from

:35:18.:35:20.

happening. If these figures are borne out, what are the implications

:35:21.:35:29.

for us as a population and for the NHS? We already know that the NHS is

:35:30.:35:34.

struggling under the pressure of the ageing population and we know that

:35:35.:35:37.

social care is also under pressure. We know that pressures will only

:35:38.:35:43.

increase. Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability, it is

:35:44.:35:46.

about two thirds of stroke survivors that leave hospital with a

:35:47.:35:50.

disability. It also has a bigger range of disabilities than any other

:35:51.:35:53.

condition. It is not just physical impairments. We know of one man

:35:54.:35:58.

whose wife woke up in hospital with no physical impairments, but could

:35:59.:36:02.

not remember who she was. It is physical and hidden effects that

:36:03.:36:07.

people are living with as a long-term condition. It is great

:36:08.:36:10.

more people are surviving a stroke because of advances in treatment,

:36:11.:36:15.

but we have a real problem of people living at a stroke with little or no

:36:16.:36:19.

support. Cindy, tell us what happened with your two strokes? I

:36:20.:36:25.

was in an internet cafe on a Friday with my friend, doing some work.

:36:26.:36:30.

Suddenly, my vision completely went. Everything was distorted and I lost

:36:31.:36:33.

my balance. I couldn't really figure out where I was. I ended up going to

:36:34.:36:40.

the hospital. They sent me home, saying I had a migraine. Over the

:36:41.:36:44.

next four days, I kept going back to the hospital, because my vision

:36:45.:36:47.

would not come back. They kept sending me home. When I had another

:36:48.:36:53.

stroke on Monday, I could not control my body, I was spinning in

:36:54.:36:56.

circles and could not stop. My body was just doing what it wanted. My

:36:57.:37:00.

coordination, my vision was not there. Again, I went to hospital and

:37:01.:37:07.

it took another four days to get a CT scan, because they would not give

:37:08.:37:10.

it to me. Then they told me I had multiple strokes will stop How did

:37:11.:37:16.

you react to that? I was gobsmacked, completely gobsmacked. Because my

:37:17.:37:20.

mother had had four strokes before, I kind of guessed that I have had a

:37:21.:37:24.

stroke, especially after the second one. Then took a long time for me to

:37:25.:37:30.

be able to walk again, to write again, do everything again. How old

:37:31.:37:37.

are you now? 27. Not that long ago, then? Tell me about the impact on

:37:38.:37:41.

your life now. I have a lot of problems with my vision, my visual

:37:42.:37:49.

field, it is very distorted. With lighting, I can't see things, I see

:37:50.:37:57.

things in fours and fives. I have Parkinson's in my right side, and

:37:58.:38:03.

weakness in that side. I get very tired, extreme fatigue, I can't be

:38:04.:38:06.

awake for very long. It has left me with a lot of problems. I have got a

:38:07.:38:12.

young child as well. She is three? Yes. There is stuff you cannot do

:38:13.:38:16.

with her that you normally would be doing as a 27-year-old mum? I used

:38:17.:38:22.

to be out and about with her all the time and I can't do that any more.

:38:23.:38:26.

Do you know why you have the strokes? Not yet. I do have some

:38:27.:38:31.

problems with my heart and they are still investigating, but they can't

:38:32.:38:38.

tell me definitely why. Alexis, 1.2 million people like Cindy currently

:38:39.:38:42.

live with the effects of a stroke. What can we do to prevent ourselves

:38:43.:38:49.

having a stroke? The good news is that 80% of strokes are preventable,

:38:50.:38:52.

that is why it is a travesty that we see so many still happening across

:38:53.:38:57.

the UK and the world today. It is generally healthy living advice, you

:38:58.:39:01.

should be eating healthily, do not eat too much salt, smoking doubles

:39:02.:39:04.

the risk, if you are smoking you should definitely stop. Two of the

:39:05.:39:08.

most important things are that half of our strokes are caused by high

:39:09.:39:12.

blood pressure, and another 20% or 30% are caused by a condition which

:39:13.:39:17.

is an irregular heartbeat, that increases the risk. Is that what you

:39:18.:39:24.

had? Yes. If people take time to check blood pressure regularly...

:39:25.:39:29.

How do you do that? It is simple, you can go to your GP, some of them

:39:30.:39:35.

have machines in the waiting room, most pharmacies checked for free.

:39:36.:39:44.

You can go to one of The Stroke Association Events. Smoking, eating

:39:45.:39:51.

too much salt, poor diet, being too sedentary, and some people have high

:39:52.:39:57.

blood pressure from other causes. It is important to check it once a

:39:58.:40:00.

year. It takes less than five minutes. If you are found to have

:40:01.:40:05.

high blood pressure, lifestyle changes can address that, or tablets

:40:06.:40:10.

can drastically reduce the risk. We know that there are seven million

:40:11.:40:16.

people living with high blood pressure. Why do we know so much

:40:17.:40:19.

about cancer and the symptoms, and we really do not when it comes to

:40:20.:40:24.

having a stroke, which, according to these figures, almost half of us are

:40:25.:40:27.

going to experience in the next 20 years if we don't do anything? It is

:40:28.:40:33.

a huge problem, we know that awareness is relatively high because

:40:34.:40:39.

of TV adverts. But we have people that didn't know the risk factors,

:40:40.:40:47.

and we don't know why. You associated with older people. Yes,

:40:48.:40:51.

and a quarter of strokes happen to people aged under 65. There are too

:40:52.:40:59.

many people living with strokes that could have been prevented, that

:41:00.:41:03.

aren't getting the support they need. Thank you very much. Thank you

:41:04.:41:12.

for talking to us. It is excellent that you are raising awareness in

:41:13.:41:13.

the way that you are. Let me read you more comments from

:41:14.:41:22.

people that are reacting to the leaked draft of the general

:41:23.:41:28.

manifesto from the Labour Party. Gareth, the manifesto, as reported,

:41:29.:41:32.

is truly inspirational in these troubled times. Why on earth would

:41:33.:41:36.

they be worried it has been leaked? It is clear Jeremy Corbyn's Labour

:41:37.:41:42.

stands for the many, not the few. The rail network is a shambles and

see a government back doctors, nurses and support staff. I work in

mental health and can tell you that austerity is causing stress, anxiety

:41:55.:41:59.

and depression. We need to invest in people, not steal from them to give

:42:00.:42:02.

the richest 5% even more than they already have. Carroll says that

:42:03.:42:06.

Labour make too many promises that are going to cost too much money

:42:07.:42:09.

and, like last term, the end of their last time, when precious

:42:10.:42:14.

little will have changed. We will be up to our highs in debt and they

:42:15.:42:17.

:42:18.:42:20.

Keep your views coming in, wherever you are in the country.

:42:21.:42:24.

Coming up, we'll have a look at how rapper Bow Wow was caught out

:42:25.:42:28.

Shares in the owner of Snapchat have sunk by nearly a quarter.

:42:29.:42:34.

The problem for stockmarkets is that Snapchat hasn't grown quickly enough

:42:35.:42:37.

since its floatation earlier this year.

:42:38.:42:41.

Competition from rivals like Facebook hasn't helped.

:42:42.:42:43.

The amount of money it generated in the last three months nearly

:42:44.:42:46.

trebled to nearly ?115 million, but that's disappointing

:42:47.:42:48.

Jasper Lawler is a Senior Markets Analyst at London

:42:49.:42:51.

What is that? It is a brokerage, we work in Mayfair. Good for you. Why

:42:52.:43:09.

are the results so bad? Like you inferred, the results are actually

:43:10.:43:12.

pretty good. They tripled their sales over last year, but in

:43:13.:43:18.

stock-market parlance, they missed expectations. The market expected

:43:19.:43:23.

more. The big metric that we tend to follow with these kind of tech

:43:24.:43:26.

companies, because they were not expected to make any money, we knew

:43:27.:43:30.

they would make a loss, we are tracking whether they can make a

:43:31.:43:34.

profit in the future, through user growth. User growth was not as fast

:43:35.:43:38.

as it has been in the past. It is slowing, still growing, but slowing.

:43:39.:43:44.

This is leading into the fears that Wall Street had originally, that

:43:45.:43:47.

Snapchat is going to never quite make it in the big leagues of the

:43:48.:43:51.

internet advertising giants, like Google and Facebook. One of the big

:43:52.:43:55.

reasons is that Facebook are stealing a lot of their ideas and

:43:56.:43:58.

copying features into their own apps. Like what? Stories is a big

:43:59.:44:05.

feature. You can add together clips and videos of what you have been

:44:06.:44:09.

doing, share it with your friends, manipulated in various ways and that

:44:10.:44:12.

can be used to incorporate with adverts. That is how they make

:44:13.:44:17.

money. Facebook already has a massive audience, so they are

:44:18.:44:20.

sending the same features to the already massive audience. Snapchat

:44:21.:44:22.

are still trying to grow the audience. Snapchat was launched as a

:44:23.:44:31.

camera app, wasn't it? I don't know any teenager that uses it. They take

:44:32.:44:43.

pictures and are adding ears and whiskers, but mostly they are using

:44:44.:44:47.

it to chat? It was a confusing listing, they have some hardware as

:44:48.:44:52.

well, they could integrate it with glasses, interacting almost

:44:53.:44:55.

constantly with your friends, doing stories, sharing it. Essentially it

:44:56.:45:03.

is a messaging app. The way you have to look at it at this point, we are

:45:04.:45:07.

almost back to the IPO price. What does that mean? Where they listed

:45:08.:45:12.

the stock initially, just three months ago. The share price jumped

:45:13.:45:15.

up a lot in the first day and now it is back where it started. Any

:45:16.:45:20.

potential investor now has a new opportunity. Why would you do that?

:45:21.:45:25.

Because of the future potential. The potential I can see is actually

:45:26.:45:28.

advertising, where they make their money, it could potentially be a lot

:45:29.:45:32.

more interesting and interactive for users on Snapchat. How? Rather than

:45:33.:45:37.

being a pain, as adverts mostly appear to be, I can demonstrate on

:45:38.:45:39.

the phone, if you would like. I can bring it up on the telephone.

:45:40.:45:52.

If I go to stories, you can add some friends and these are stories from

:45:53.:46:02.

Cosmopolitan. So you read Cosmopolitan? This is for

:46:03.:46:07.

demonstration purposes, I promise! I will try not to move it around too

:46:08.:46:12.

much. A good example is people follow what their friends are doing

:46:13.:46:21.

and celebrities. Again, purely for demonstration, this is the story and

:46:22.:46:28.

she is playing around with some goats in Mexico maybe. People are

:46:29.:46:34.

watching this and they have chosen to watch it. The difference with

:46:35.:46:39.

advertising on TV is Snapchat know what you have been browsing in your

:46:40.:46:43.

search history and they know you are watching this by choice and they

:46:44.:46:48.

send you a targeted advert that you are very likely to act on. So it is

:46:49.:46:54.

not interactive. I am thinking you do not mean that there is an advert

:46:55.:47:02.

you can manipulate. They are selling you a vision. They are saying, this

:47:03.:47:07.

is what the future is. It is not something you have chosen to watch

:47:08.:47:12.

and suddenly you are playing a game. There was an advert at the end of

:47:13.:47:15.

this and it was an online subscription service where you could

:47:16.:47:20.

subscribe right there using Snapchat. Thank you very much. A

senior market analyst at London capital group Investments. Next, a

:47:27.:47:36.

woman in Taiwan with terminal breast cancer has fulfilled one of her

:47:37.:47:41.

dreams by having a wedding photo shoot done, despite the fact she is

:47:42.:47:47.

single. She has posted it on social media and has had a huge response

:47:48.:47:49.

around the world. This is her story. She is 28 and she has terminal

:47:50.:50:42.

breast cancer. Let me read some comments from you about the leaked

:50:43.:50:48.

Labour manifesto. This is from John. I support many of the policies

:50:49.:50:53.

outlined in the manifesto, but I cannot see how they will be

:50:54.:50:58.

financed. By the way, some of the policies are nationalising the

:50:59.:51:02.

railways, parts of the energy sector, abolishing university

:51:03.:51:07.

tuition fees in England. 8 billion more for social care over the next

:51:08.:51:11.

Parliament. 100,000 new council homes will be built. Pat says, I

:51:12.:51:16.

think it was deliberately leaked to give Labour a head start. I am

:51:17.:51:23.

concerned the league is a pretence. Jamie, does nobody remember Labour

:51:24.:51:28.

implemented increased tuition fees in the 1980s? I campaign against

:51:29.:51:32.

student loans and fees introduced by the Conservatives. Mark says, I am a

:51:33.:51:41.

long-time Labour voter who switched to the SNP. If Labour had been

:51:42.:51:44.

proposing these policies years ago, I would never have left them for the

:51:45.:51:52.

SNP. I suspect many new SNP voters would say the same. Keep those

:51:53.:51:57.

coming in. We will talk more about the leaked manifesto after ten.

:51:58.:52:04.

From Snapchat to Instagram - let's have a quick word

:52:05.:52:06.

about the rapper Bow Wow who's been caught out making a bit

:52:07.:52:09.

of an embarrassing claim on social media.

:52:10.:52:11.

As a result, everyone else on social media was trying to outdo him

:52:12.:52:14.

Our entertainment correspondent Lizo Mzimba is here.

:52:15.:52:17.

Rapper Bow Wow posted on Instagram, suggesting that he was flying

:52:18.:52:20.

It was exclusive. Look at it. I would be happy with one of the cars

:52:21.:52:35.

Unfortunately someone spotted how he appeared to be really travelling,

:52:36.:52:39.

and tweeted a photo of Bow Wow actually sitting in economy

:52:40.:52:42.

Twitter is never one to miss out on developing trend.

:52:43.:53:00.

That one with the pictures has been tweeted 20,000 times and liked

:53:01.:53:05.

40,000 times. People acted with lead to the gas. Tell us about the

:53:06.:53:09.

It triggered the hashtag #BowWowChallenge with people around

:53:10.:53:16.

the world posting messages in which they pretended

:53:17.:53:17.

Patrice Pannel tweeted how much she was enjoying her holiday

:53:18.:53:37.

The pictures on the left look very impressive, but on the right it puts

:53:38.:53:58.

it in slightly more interesting context.

:53:59.:54:03.

Bow Wow's social media mishap isn't the first time that celebrities

:54:04.:54:07.

When Charlie Sheen wanted to send popstar and fellow celeb

:54:08.:54:14.

Justin Bieber his phone number, he accidentally tweeted it

:54:15.:54:18.

publically - and ended up being inundated with calls and messages.

:54:19.:54:26.

None of them were from Justin Bieber unfortunately!

:54:27.:54:31.

Music star Rita Ora overestimated her fans' enthusiasm when she posted

:54:32.:54:34.

a tweet promising some new music if her message was

:54:35.:54:36.

When it only got a few thousand, she deleted her original message.

:54:37.:54:45.

And Manchester City premiership star Ilkay Gundogan posted

:54:46.:54:49.

a tweet referring to how he was with the Arsenal team

:54:50.:54:51.

And the photo was of Arsenal player Mesut Ozil, leading everyone

:54:52.:55:00.

to conclude that the same person looked after the social media

:55:01.:55:03.

for both players and had accidentally tweeted

:55:04.:55:06.

Again it was swiftly deleted a few minutes after everyone noticed this.

:55:07.:55:22.

The dangers mean than some celebrities have handed final

:55:23.:55:25.

control over their social media to their PR team or management

:55:26.:55:27.

including Adele who has around 28 million followers on Twitter

:55:28.:55:30.

I'm not a drinker any more, but when Twitter first came out,

:55:31.:55:40.

And like nearly put my foot in it quite a few times,

:55:41.:55:46.

so my management decided that you have to go through, like,

:55:47.:55:49.

two people and then it has to be signed off by someone.

:55:50.:55:52.

But they are all my tweets, no one writes my tweets.

:55:53.:55:54.

Let's talk to PR expert Mark Borkowski.

:55:55.:56:08.

You are on. I am too slow. What do you think about this embarrassing

:56:09.:56:21.

post? There are many embarrassing posts from celebrities because they

:56:22.:56:26.

do have teams that manage these huge crowds of people who follow them.

:56:27.:56:38.

Will Bow Bow have posted that himself or will it be a member of

:56:39.:56:44.

staff? Possibly. If you have millions of followers, you cannot do

:56:45.:56:48.

it all yourself. These are incredibly powerful channels. You do

:56:49.:56:51.

not have to go through another media to get your message across. Of

:56:52.:56:57.

course there are great deals to be done. You can be invited to a hotel

:56:58.:57:03.

or a restaurant and it is free and you are paid. Some people are

:57:04.:57:08.

getting ?14,000 for a tweet. It is the equivalent of trying to brand a

:57:09.:57:13.

raindrop in a thunderstorm. ?14,000 if you plug a hotel? If you have got

:57:14.:57:21.

a big enough following, yes. But why pretend or is it a mistake? I

:57:22.:57:25.

remember there was some nascent celebrity building their profile and

:57:26.:57:29.

deliberately made spelling errors because it generated conversation.

:57:30.:57:37.

Bow Bow is now being circulated around the social media space. Many

:57:38.:57:41.

people have not heard of him before and they now have. But if you are

:57:42.:57:45.

ridiculed on social media? Some people can take it. That is true.

:57:46.:57:54.

From a celebrity's point of view, do you advise your clients to do it

:57:55.:57:58.

themselves because it is direct contact with fans and you can tell

:57:59.:58:03.

if someone is authentic or not? Putting your mobile phone in the

:58:04.:58:08.

hands of somebody to do your own tweets can be a disaster. Some

:58:09.:58:15.

people are natural with it. Some people are not very good at doing it

:58:16.:58:22.

and get terrified. You do not tweet when you are drinking. As Adele

:58:23.:58:26.

said. There was that incredible picture of robbing thick which

:58:27.:58:32.

caused his marriage to fail because he was photographed with a starlet

:58:33.:58:36.

in a nightclub. Unfortunately behind in a mirror you could see him

:58:37.:58:40.

putting his hand on that person's rear quarters. There has to be a

:58:41.:58:45.

transparency because people buy into it. Obvious questions are asked like

:58:46.:58:54.

what is your birthday? Facts can be answered by a robot, but sometimes

:58:55.:58:58.

they can go wrong. People like to know they are connected with that

:58:59.:59:03.

celebrity. We have been obsessed with celebrities since the days of

:59:04.:59:11.

early celebrities. There was an insight into celebrities' lives and

:59:12.:59:15.

people bought into that. Fan clubs in the 60s you had to stick to the

:59:16.:59:23.

message. The long answer to your short question is you need people to

:59:24.:59:28.

help you because you can do this alone, particularly with a mass

:59:29.:59:31.

following of people going at you all the time.

:59:32.:59:40.

We have got some changes and most of us today it will be dry and fine,

:59:41.:59:52.

but more cloud is coming into southern parts of England and Wales.

:59:53.:59:56.

We could get some heavy and thundery showers developing later on in the

:59:57.:00:02.

afternoon. Increasingly humid air in the South East. As we run through

:00:03.:00:08.

this evening and overnight there will be more showers and heading

:00:09.:00:13.

further north into Wales and the Midlands and wetter weather arriving

:00:14.:00:17.

in Northern Ireland. A cooler night in the north of England, but it will

:00:18.:00:21.

be warmer than it has been for some time. More cloud on the way on

:00:22.:00:28.

Friday. Very few showers for Scotland and also across northern

:00:29.:00:32.

England. But the rest of England and Wales will see heavy showers,

:00:33.:00:36.

thunderstorms and torrential downpours again. There could be some

:00:37.:00:40.

localised flooding. Some much needed rain, but not quite everywhere.

:00:41.:00:47.

Good morning, welcome to the programme.

:00:48.:00:57.

Labour's leaked manifesto promises a include plans

:00:58.:00:59.

to nationalise the railways, abolish tuition fees

:01:00.:01:00.

The party's campaign co-ordinator says he's relaxed about the leak.

:01:01.:01:04.

Leaks happen, they always happen and they probably always will.

:01:05.:01:06.

But the point is there's an opportunity now, we're talking

:01:07.:01:09.

about Labour's policies a week in advance of when we

:01:10.:01:11.

Also on on the programme today, Seni Lewis, a 23-year-old IT

:01:12.:01:26.

graduate from London died after 11 police officers used multiple

force to restrain him in a mental health hospital.

:01:29.:01:31.

Yesterday, an inquest found that they used excessive force and

:01:32.:01:37.

contributed to his death. His parents will tell us about their

:01:38.:01:39.

long fight for justice in the next hour. We will get the latest on a

:01:40.:01:47.

special conference in London on saving lives in Somalia, where

:01:48.:01:52.

thousands are facing famine. As a global Britain, we will continue to

:01:53.:01:56.

drive coordinated international efforts that increase global

:01:57.:01:58.

security and protect our values around the world.

:01:59.:02:01.

Here's Annita in the BBC Newsroom with a summary of today's news.

:02:02.:02:09.

Labour's draft manifesto has been leaked to the press before its

:02:10.:02:18.

launch date. It outlines plans to scrap tuition fees, ban fracking and

:02:19.:02:21.

create some publicly owned energy companies. The campaigns coordinator

:02:22.:02:25.

told Breakfast the leak gives the party an opportunity to talk about

:02:26.:02:28.

their vision for the country. The Conservatives have called it a

:02:29.:02:29.

shambles. Theresa May is hosting an

:02:30.:02:34.

international conference on Somalia. The Prime Minister is meeting world

:02:35.:02:36.

leaders for the summit in London. It's hoped humanitarian aid

:02:37.:02:43.

for the drought-stricken country can be offered and a new plan to improve

:02:44.:02:45.

security there can be agreed. A few moments ago she made

:02:46.:02:48.

these opening remarks. If Somalia is a foothold for

:03:13.:03:15.

Mr Comey said he wasn't going to "spend time on the decision

:03:16.:03:18.

the dismissal is linked to the FBI's investigation into alleged links

a big Europa League semi-final clash Their match with Celta Vigo is live

:08:57.:09:13.

on Radio 5 Live from seven. Good morning, welcome to the

:09:14.:09:21.

programme. He was a 23-year-old IT graduate

:09:22.:09:26.

with no history of mental illness. In 2010 he went out with friends

:09:27.:09:29.

over the August bank holiday. He returned home saying

:09:30.:09:32.

he thought he'd been drugged. When his behaviour became erratic

:09:33.:09:35.

he voluntarily went to 18 hours later he collapsed

:09:36.:09:38.

and he never woke up. Yesterday, an inquest concluded

:09:39.:09:47.

excessive force was used by 11 police officers to restrain him

:09:48.:09:50.

and that contributed to his death. The jury said being restrained

:09:51.:09:55.

by officers for firstly ten minutes and then later 20 minutes,

:09:56.:09:58.

was unnecessary and unreasonable. The coroner ruled out

:09:59.:10:04.

unlawful killing. This, after two investigations

:10:05.:10:10.

by the police watchdog We can speak now to Aji

:10:11.:10:12.

and Conrad Lewis, Sheni's mum and dad, as well as Deborah Coles,

:10:13.:10:18.

director of the charity Inquest, Thank you very much for coming on

:10:19.:10:33.

the programme. Conrad, the jury said that the restraint used by those

:10:34.:10:37.

officers for the prolonged period of time, ten minutes and then 20

:10:38.:10:41.

minutes, was unnecessary and unreasonable. Excessive. What was it

:10:42.:10:48.

like to hear that, as evidence? Traumatic. Initially, we didn't

:10:49.:10:55.

really know what happened until the inquest, which was six and a half

:10:56.:11:04.

years later. Now to hear how it all unfolded, the lies that were being

:11:05.:11:09.

told by the police and the health staff, you know, we were just lost

:11:10.:11:20.

for words. Everybody in court gasped when they heard the treatment. I

:11:21.:11:23.

think the doctor said they were treating him like an animal. What

:11:24.:11:38.

was it like for you,Aji? He had so much promise, still a child, looking

:11:39.:11:41.

to the future. And his life was snubbed out. The whole family is

:11:42.:11:50.

traumatised. Life does not move as smoothly as you would like. It is

:11:51.:11:53.

really traumatic. It affects everybody. When you have a

:11:54.:11:58.

23-year-old son, you kind of think, we have done our job, now. We have

:11:59.:12:06.

done a good job? Yes. He enjoyed his studies, we never had to tell him to

:12:07.:12:11.

study hard and work hard. A young, black man, if you don't get a good

:12:12.:12:15.

job, where are you? But he was full of the joys of spring. It is just

:12:16.:12:27.

very sad. Sad. Do you have an answer yet as to why this happened? No. We

:12:28.:12:37.

are still waiting for answers. From the police, from the health

:12:38.:12:45.

authorities. After waiting seven years, I'm not quite sure any of

:12:46.:12:51.

them are going to give us the answer that we need to hear. But if they

:12:52.:12:57.

can get up and do what they are supposed to do, to stop other

:12:58.:13:05.

families feeling the way we do, this is for the rest of our lives now,

:13:06.:13:08.

but we don't want to see any other family in the same way we feel. It's

:13:09.:13:18.

crippling. I am going to bring in Deborah, from the charity Inquest.

:13:19.:13:24.

Explain to our audience what restraint was used on Seni for that

:13:25.:13:30.

second period and what happened to him after the officers left him? The

:13:31.:13:37.

jury were quite condemning in what happened, ultimately 11 officers

:13:38.:13:41.

were involved in holding Seni facedown, in a prone position. He

:13:42.:13:47.

also had mechanical restraints, two sets of handcuffs, leg and arm

:13:48.:13:52.

restraints as well, to the point of complete collapse. The jury's

:13:53.:13:59.

finding is unequivocal, that he was restrained to death. Even at the

:14:00.:14:02.

point of collapse, neither the police or the doctor present went to

:14:03.:14:06.

his aid, and evidence was given at the inquest that they thought he

:14:07.:14:11.

might have been faking it. Faking unconsciousness? So they left the

:14:12.:14:15.

room? I think what is so shocking about this case is the fact that

:14:16.:14:20.

this was an extremely vulnerable man who had gone to hospital because he

:14:21.:14:24.

needed help. He needed support, professional care. Someone in a

:14:25.:14:30.

mental health crisis, that they can die in this circumstance, raises

:14:31.:14:34.

questions about both the provision and quality of mental health

:14:35.:14:39.

services, but also of the treatment by the police.

:14:40.:14:47.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission review was completed a

:14:48.:14:50.

couple of years ago and they concluded that six officers had a

:14:51.:14:55.

case to answer for gross misconduct and they say now the inquest is over

:14:56.:15:00.

they will be working with the Metropolitan police to ensure

:15:01.:15:02.

disciplinary proceedings are held properly. We have a statement from

:15:03.:15:08.

the Met police: It has been my ongoing commitment to obtain answers

:15:09.:15:15.

for this family. The IPCC have been clearer about mistakes made in the

:15:16.:15:18.

past and I have apologised to the Lewis family in public and in

:15:19.:15:22.

private and the Met police have been directed to carry out disciplinary

:15:23.:15:26.

procedures which I hope will take place as soon as possible. I do not

:15:27.:15:32.

know if it is possible to explain the strain on you over the last

:15:33.:15:36.

seven years. You lose your son, there are two IPCC investigations

:15:37.:15:45.

then a judicial review and now a jury inquest. There was another

:15:46.:15:49.

inquiry by the Health and Safety Executive. There was another

:15:50.:15:56.

investigation. So, yes, each stage you feel thwarted, you have to keep

:15:57.:16:01.

fighting, it is a struggle. You keep going. You keep going? Yes. We have

:16:02.:16:09.

to. That is what we have been doing. What about the impact on your wider

:16:10.:16:15.

family? We have two other children and two grandchildren and we try our

:16:16.:16:23.

best as a family to keep ourselves going and motivate each other, be

:16:24.:16:27.

there for each other and encourage the grandchildren. It is hard some

:16:28.:16:35.

days. You know, each day can be different. You have given us a

:16:36.:16:42.

little bit of an insight into what your son was like, tell us what he

:16:43.:16:47.

was like. He was a young man, he liked his clothes, he had an eye for

:16:48.:16:56.

a pretty girl, you know. He was fun loving, he had loads of friends, he

:16:57.:17:01.

hated injustice and would stick up for anybody. He did not like

:17:02.:17:04.

bullies. It is interesting, isn't it? And nobody had to tell him to

:17:05.:17:11.

study. He knew he had to study and he would get on with it. He was just

:17:12.:17:19.

a normal, gentle soul. Deborah, would a white 23-year-old man had

:17:20.:17:26.

been treated like this? It is an interesting question. There is no

:17:27.:17:30.

doubt from the work we have done that black, particularly young,

:17:31.:17:36.

black men, particularly liked you to die from the use of force. But the

:17:37.:17:42.

other area with a disproportionality is the area where people have mental

:17:43.:17:45.

health problems. If you are a black man with mental health problems, it

:17:46.:17:51.

raises important questions about stereotyping and whether or not, be

:17:52.:17:55.

it fear or stigma, whether or not that informs treatment. I think what

:17:56.:18:03.

happened and a terrible evidence this inquest has heard, the people

:18:04.:18:08.

who should have been looking after him lost sight of him as a human

:18:09.:18:13.

being. I think there were very important questions about training

:18:14.:18:19.

in understanding racism and discrimination. But also one of the

:18:20.:18:23.

things that this family have spoken about so movingly is the impact of

:18:24.:18:30.

delay on their ability to grieve. I very much hope now they have got

:18:31.:18:34.

some answers that they can begin that process. But for this family

:18:35.:18:40.

and like families before and after, sadly these deaths are still

:18:41.:18:45.

happening. We have got to ensure that there is both the

:18:46.:18:48.

accountability of those responsible, but also learning. That is what this

:18:49.:18:53.

family, like other families, like Conrad said, they want is not to

:18:54.:18:58.

happen to someone else. We have got to demand of the Metropolitan police

:18:59.:19:02.

and the Department of Health that they act on the findings of this

:19:03.:19:06.

inquest. There is a review commissioned by the Prime Minister

:19:07.:19:09.

when she was sitting as Home Secretary in 2015 because she had

:19:10.:19:15.

met personally with the family and the family of another black man and

:19:16.:19:20.

she was concerned about the protracted nature of the

:19:21.:19:22.

investigations and the lack of justice that she commissioned a

:19:23.:19:30.

review. That review was given to the new Home Secretary in January and is

:19:31.:19:34.

still yet to be published. Of course that is an opportunity to try and

:19:35.:19:38.

ensure that we learn from these awful, preventable death. Thank you

:19:39.:19:44.

very much for talking to us. Thank you for coming on the programme. I

:19:45.:19:47.

have a message from somebody who was watching. My heart goes out to the

:19:48.:19:52.

family, totally shocking, shameful and devastating. Heartbreaking

:19:53.:20:00.

beyond words. You have spoken with great dignity this morning, thank

:20:01.:20:01.

you. Thank you very much indeed. Usually one of the most closely

:20:02.:20:06.

guarded documents in a the run up to an election building up to a set

:20:07.:20:09.

piece event where a party publishes its planned direction

:20:10.:20:12.

for the country, the manifesto. But it looks like we know exactly

:20:13.:20:18.

what will be in Labour's manifesto before we were supposed

:20:19.:20:21.

to because it was leaked last night. Norman, run through what is in the

:20:22.:20:39.

draft manifesto. This is a massive document with a huge number of

:20:40.:20:44.

pledges. I do not recall a manifesto with so many promises contained in

:20:45.:20:48.

it. It is like the Encyclopaedia Britannica of manifestos, everything

:20:49.:20:54.

from building 1 million more houses to more childcare, to a ban on

:20:55.:21:00.

fracking, down to small policies like ensuring that rail companies

:21:01.:21:05.

provide free Wi-Fi on trains. I got a train the other day and the Wi-Fi

:21:06.:21:09.

was lousy, so maybe it is not a bad idea. Let's meet at you through some

:21:10.:21:16.

of the big, benchmark policies. Top of the list is nationalising things

:21:17.:21:23.

like the railways, Royal Mail, bringing that back into public

:21:24.:21:27.

ownership, bits of the energy industry as well would be taken back

:21:28.:21:32.

into the public sector. There would be more regulation of bus services.

:21:33.:21:37.

The last time the Labour Party suggested that sort of public

:21:38.:21:42.

ownership and we would have to go back to 1983 and Michael Foot and

:21:43.:21:46.

his manifesto. He talked about taking back the shipyards and

:21:47.:21:51.

telecoms and so on. The other big eye-catching announcement is

:21:52.:21:54.

increasing income tax on the wealthy, those earning more than

:21:55.:21:59.

?80,000. Jeremy Corbyn's people say these are the top 5% in society. We

:22:00.:22:06.

are talking about the most wealthy. What the draft manifesto does not

:22:07.:22:10.

tell us is how they will be hit. Maybe through a wealth tax, maybe by

:22:11.:22:15.

increasing the number of people in the higher rate of tax, changing it

:22:16.:22:22.

and inheritance tax. But the rich will be hit. University tuition fees

:22:23.:22:28.

will be scrapped. That was a benchmark Jeremy Corbyn pledge when

:22:29.:22:32.

he stood for the leadership. It was one of the things that galvanised

:22:33.:22:37.

many of his young supporters. It became an iconic Jeremy Corbyn

:22:38.:22:42.

methods. In the manifesto they confirm tuition fees will be

:22:43.:22:46.

scrapped. That comes with a big price tag. It could cost around ?11

:22:47.:22:51.

billion. That is an awful lot of money and we do not have the details

:22:52.:22:59.

on how that will be paid for. Lastly, energy and rent price caps.

:23:00.:23:04.

The government under Jeremy Corbyn would intervene to cap the amount

:23:05.:23:10.

being paid for fuel bills at around ?1000. If you pay more, the Jeremy

:23:11.:23:15.

Corbyn government would bring it down. Similarly, if you are

:23:16.:23:19.

struggling to pay your rent in the private sector, a Jeremy Corbyn

:23:20.:23:24.

government will look at introducing rental caps to put a lid on the

:23:25.:23:28.

amount you have to pay to the landlord. There are a whole swathe

:23:29.:23:32.

of policies. But what that is not really is a breakdown of how this is

:23:33.:23:39.

all going to be paid for. There are a lot of big ticket items here. For

:23:40.:23:44.

example they will end the public sector pay cap. They will keep the

:23:45.:23:49.

triple lock on pensions. They will reverse most of the benefit changes

:23:50.:23:53.

and cuts introduced by the Conservatives. They will extend

:23:54.:23:59.

personal independence payments. Recently the Tories blocked that.

:24:00.:24:03.

That is estimated to cost ?4 billion. They have also suggested ?8

:24:04.:24:08.

billion for social care. At the moment we do not know where that

:24:09.:24:12.

money is coming from and that will be one of the big questions

:24:13.:24:15.

With me now is Emma Rees, she's from Momentum.

:24:16.:24:20.

And Stephen Bush from the Current Affairs and Political

:24:21.:24:23.

Hello to both of you. What do you think, Emma? I think the draft

:24:24.:24:34.

manifesto which was leaked last night set out a set of really bold

:24:35.:24:38.

policies which I think will be incredibly popular with the

:24:39.:24:45.

electorate and will tackle our rigged economy and our rigged system

:24:46.:24:48.

in the interests of the many and not the few. Just as Labour's slogan

:24:49.:24:54.

says, this draft manifesto puts flesh on the bones of that

:24:55.:24:57.

statement. It is definitely ambitious and radical. Will it

:24:58.:25:05.

appeared to conservative voters and Ukip photos? Will it appeal? We also

:25:06.:25:14.

know from elections past that people tend to assess the policies through

:25:15.:25:21.

the prism of the leader. We talk about Labour's 1983 manifesto being

:25:22.:25:34.

radical. At the time the leader was reassuring and people looked at him

:25:35.:25:38.

and said, you are all right. Theresa May looks like a safe pair of hands.

:25:39.:25:42.

The manifesto will not be Labour's problem in this election. It is the

:25:43.:25:49.

messenger? They have got to turn people round on Jeremy Corbyn they

:25:50.:25:54.

have got to get him doing classic events, Desert Island discs, where

:25:55.:25:57.

he comes across as a warm, normal person who people trust to take

:25:58.:26:04.

decisions. People need to know more about Jeremy Corbyn rather than what

:26:05.:26:07.

they see at the moment and the stereotype that he has been tooling

:26:08.:26:12.

around the country doing lots of campaign events. It is unlike

:26:13.:26:18.

Theresa May. He is speaking to people who already support him. That

:26:19.:26:24.

is not true. He has been doing many visits in Tory held seats. In seats

:26:25.:26:30.

where there has been an increase in Ukip support in the past. He is very

:26:31.:26:34.

much talking to people across the country. And despite that... The

:26:35.:26:42.

contrary to what I think you are about to say. He has had more

:26:43.:26:46.

visibility and he is getting more coverage in the press and he is

:26:47.:26:52.

doing many more visits and campaign events across the country. We have

:26:53.:26:56.

seen an increased dramatically in the popularity of the Labour Party.

:26:57.:27:03.

We are catching up in the polls. Not in the local elections which is the

:27:04.:27:06.

only poll we can trust at the moment. I think that is true. There

:27:07.:27:12.

has been a ten point increase that was reported last weekend. I think

:27:13.:27:19.

we have now got... The Tories gained over 500 councillors. That is a

:27:20.:27:23.

distorted view for a general election. I know you cannot

:27:24.:27:27.

extrapolate, but if we are looking at polls, let's look at the one

:27:28.:27:31.

where people voted and that is the most recent. These policies set out

:27:32.:27:37.

in the draft manifesto, and they have been announced over the

:27:38.:27:41.

previous few weeks, have wide public support. Things like the ?10 minimum

:27:42.:27:47.

wage, 77% of people support that policy and that will make a huge

:27:48.:27:51.

impact on the lives of ordinary people. Those are the policies

:27:52.:27:54.

people will vote for in this election. Over the next few weeks

:27:55.:28:00.

the Labour Party and all its half a million members will be out on the

:28:01.:28:03.

doorsteps and speaking to people up and down the country. People are

:28:04.:28:07.

saying there is a lot of expenditure, how will it be paid

:28:08.:28:13.

for? Do we have to wait for the manifesto to hear that? There will

:28:14.:28:16.

be some changes, but not many changes in the meeting today. I

:28:17.:28:22.

imagined the language around defence will be more robust and will be more

:28:23.:28:27.

pro-Britain's defence industry than in the draft. There will be some

:28:28.:28:32.

stuff on spending. They have a fiscal ruled that they can borrow to

:28:33.:28:36.

invest in infrastructure, but they have a tight limits on their

:28:37.:28:42.

day-to-day expenditure. Things like transport and school building are

:28:43.:28:45.

paid for by corporation tax rises and income tax rises, changes to

:28:46.:28:50.

national insurance and private schools and private health care.

:28:51.:28:53.

OK, every day until June 8th we'll be highlighting the best gaffe,

:28:54.:29:04.

or highly amusing moment from the election

:29:05.:29:06.

We need an election and we need one now. Do every city and every time.

:29:07.:29:19.

It is our clear intention. The big question is simply this. Our voters

:29:20.:29:23.

getting tired? Politicians... Let me finish. So, Norman, what have you

:29:24.:29:33.

got? Elections encourage political

:29:34.:29:48.

groupies, if you remember Milifandom, when he was mobbed

:29:49.:29:53.

getting off a campaign bus. Jeremy Corbyn seems to have his fans around

:29:54.:30:00.

him, on the campaign trail, offering him bananas and kissing him on the

:30:01.:30:04.

cheek. Now we have a new group that are dubbing themselves the

:30:05.:30:11.

Maylennials. These are people that love Theresa May. They have been

:30:12.:30:16.

sharing all sorts of pictures of the Prime Minister online. This is

:30:17.:30:22.

something that caught my eye. Yes. There is Theresa May with her

:30:23.:30:26.

strong, beautiful blonde hair. Not something I have cause to use.

:30:27.:30:38.

Another one, Matrix May, with dark sunglasses, may be going in to see

:30:39.:30:45.

Jean-Claude Juncker. Here, with a bunch of hoodlums, going into

:30:46.:30:55.

negotiations with a fag in her mouth. Another thing that caught my

:30:56.:31:00.

eye, George Osborne is standing down now as an MP to go and edit the

:31:01.:31:06.

London Evening Standard. A week ago, when he started the job, he looks

:31:07.:31:11.

pretty sharp and perky. He looks OK. He is getting on with life, looks

Three months ago the UN warned that Somalia was at risk

:36:21.:36:23.

This morning the foreign secretary Boris Johnson is hosting

:36:24.:36:26.

a conference to address the humanitarian crisis in Somalia.

:36:27.:36:28.

It's bringing together politicians from East Africa

:36:29.:36:30.

and international organisations, and they'll be discussing how

:36:31.:36:32.

to tackle the issues facing the country -

:36:33.:36:34.

Lets tell you a bit more about Somalia.

:36:35.:36:47.

Somalia is a country in East Africa that's home to more than 11 million

:36:48.:36:53.

It was torn apart by a civil war that lasted for

:36:54.:36:56.

In 2012 a new government was installed but the country

:36:57.:37:00.

In 2011 there was a major famine and more than 250,000

:37:01.:37:09.

are at risk of starvation - that's more than half the country.

:37:10.:37:14.

April should have been the height of the rainy season,

:37:15.:37:17.

but most of Somalia saw little to no rain during the whole month.

:37:18.:37:20.

And it's suffering its worst cholera epidemic in five years -

:37:21.:37:22.

over 600 people have died of the disease so far this year

:37:23.:37:32.

Theresa May is attending an international conference

:37:33.:37:34.

It's hoped humanitarian aid for the drought-stricken country can

:37:35.:37:38.

be offered and a new plan to improve security there can be agreed.

:37:39.:37:41.

Theresa May made these opening remarks.

:37:42.:37:42.

These challenges that face Somalia affect us all.

:37:43.:37:45.

If Somalia is a foothold for terrorist groups

:37:46.:37:47.

like Al-Shabab and Daesh, if global trade is hijacked

:37:48.:37:50.

by pirates in the Indian Ocean, if millions are continually

:37:51.:37:52.

displaced in a desperate bid to escape poverty and drought,

:37:53.:37:54.

the impact of instability in Somalia is felt across the whole region

:37:55.:37:57.

But what we have seen over the last five years is that when we work

:37:58.:38:09.

together on these issues we can make progress.

:38:10.:38:14.

Let's talk now to Sagal Mohamed, who is an activist here in the UK -

:38:15.:38:18.

she'll be protesting outside the conference.

:38:19.:38:21.

Kevin Watkins, CEO of Save the Children joins us now

:38:22.:38:24.

after addressing the Somalia conference in Central London.

:38:25.:38:26.

Haleema Abdullahi has been raising funds for Somalia

:38:27.:38:29.

Welcome, all of you. Why are you protesting? Yes, there was a protest

:38:30.:38:48.

arranged today, around ten o'clock to one o'clock. The reason is, as

:38:49.:38:52.

you have mentioned, we have a security situation in Somalia,

:38:53.:38:58.

therefore we have people there to protect the Somali people and help

:38:59.:39:03.

the government to bring about peace in Somalia. However, saw the general

:39:04.:39:07.

public in Somalia feel there is a lack of accountability from the

:39:08.:39:12.

African union forces, in regards to rape cases, documented by the UN,

:39:13.:39:23.

where nobody has been taken to court, nobody has been prosecuted

:39:24.:39:28.

for that. Also, there is... But is this the right place to protest

:39:29.:39:34.

about that? I think it is because the support, the Somali people that

:39:35.:39:37.

live abroad, are very much passionate and engaged about what is

:39:38.:39:41.

happening in Somalia, both the positive and the negative. What do

:39:42.:39:45.

you think of this process? Is it the right place to be doing it all would

:39:46.:39:49.

you not want to comment on that? I think it is a really important

:39:50.:39:55.

point, there is terrible gender-based violence on the ground

:39:56.:39:58.

that we see on the ground. But we were -- must not lose sight of the

:39:59.:40:07.

fact that there are 1.5 million children malnourished in Somalia.

:40:08.:40:13.

250,000 of those children are on the brink of starvation. To give you a

:40:14.:40:15.

picture of what is behind the headline numbers, three weeks ago I

:40:16.:40:24.

met a two children. This was in the northern part of Somalia, visiting a

:40:25.:40:27.

health and nutrition clinic. One little boy was brought to the clinic

:40:28.:40:34.

by his mother, severely malnourished, pneumonia and

:40:35.:40:37.

diarrhoea. Doctors said they thought he had no chance of surviving, but

:40:38.:40:42.

he pulled through. We had a well-stocked clinic, all of the

:40:43.:40:48.

medicine was there, he lived. Another girl was brought to the

:40:49.:40:52.

clinic in a coma. Staff could not rehydrate her. They could not find

:40:53.:40:58.

the vein to put the drip into, she died. What this conference is

:40:59.:41:00.

dealing with them trying to address is how we create a situation in

:41:01.:41:04.

which there are fewer tragic endings, like this little girl who

:41:05.:41:13.

died, and more endings like what happened with Abdul. We have huge

:41:14.:41:19.

funding gaps, but we also have huge opportunities to deliver on the

:41:20.:41:23.

ground and make a difference. You are trying to raise money for

:41:24.:41:28.

Somalia, for what? And why does Somalia need money from the rest of

:41:29.:41:31.

the world? Rig we are raising money and items. I run a project and we

:41:32.:41:36.

are going to be raising certain items like the hydration packs for

:41:37.:41:43.

cholera, sanitary pads, cooking utensils. The priority of most NGOs

:41:44.:41:49.

as food and water, which is fine, but these people need other

:41:50.:41:52.

essential items. We have collaborated with DHL, we will send

:41:53.:41:59.

them direct. Even though these organisations do an amazing job,

:42:00.:42:02.

this is not enough, the international community need to come

:42:03.:42:06.

together, more needs to be done. There is definitely a shift towards

:42:07.:42:10.

self-reliance. We also need to take action. A lot of the promises made

:42:11.:42:14.

by the international community at the Somali conference in 2012 were

:42:15.:42:19.

not honoured. There was a lot of hope people have hope for this

:42:20.:42:22.

conference as well. There is definitely a shift in mentality. We

:42:23.:42:26.

need to do it ourselves. What will be different, when promises are made

:42:27.:42:33.

in this conference? I think what you're describing is what is

:42:34.:42:37.

possible. The Somali community is making a huge difference on the

:42:38.:42:41.

ground. I was making up a point about about commerce is? A broken

:42:42.:42:48.

promise will translate into more people losing their lives. And that

:42:49.:42:52.

happened in 2012? It has happened since the start of this crisis. One

:42:53.:42:56.

of the things we have been calling for, a $200 million funding gap is

:42:57.:43:02.

there until the end of June, we are calling for that to be delivered. At

:43:03.:43:06.

the same time, the UN has presented an expanded plan for the rest of the

:43:07.:43:10.

year. Governments have to be held to account here. This is an avoidable

:43:11.:43:14.

tragedy that we have unfolding before our eyes. The UK has stepped

:43:15.:43:18.

up to the plate. Some other donors have stepped up. There are far too

:43:19.:43:23.

many that are missing in action. How do you hold the Somali government to

:43:24.:43:28.

account? It is a very difficult job. From my experience, one of the

:43:29.:43:32.

things that really works is public engagement and campaigning. The

:43:33.:43:38.

Somali government do tend to pay attention to the general Somali

:43:39.:43:50.

public, where their political and social ideas live. We recently had

:43:51.:43:56.

an election and had a very populist person, a person that the majority

:43:57.:44:01.

of people wanted elected, although we did not have a fully democratic

:44:02.:44:06.

election. We managed to, by public campaigning, getting the word out,

:44:07.:44:10.

influence decision-making in Somalia so that we elected a President that

:44:11.:44:14.

the people wanted. Let me ask you, both of you, if I may, some people

:44:15.:44:19.

in this country say, why is it our responsibility? They don't agree

:44:20.:44:25.

with the fact that 0.7% of our GDP is given in aid, partly to Somalia?

:44:26.:44:38.

This is the humanitarian issue. You cannot prevent a drought, but having

:44:39.:44:44.

it turn into a humanitarian issue, that is something we can prevent.

:44:45.:44:48.

These are human beings, starving and dying, fleeing small towns in search

:44:49.:44:52.

of food and, along the way, they are dying. I think it is their

:44:53.:44:56.

collective response ability of the world, including the Somali

:44:57.:44:59.

government. There is a definite push towards self-reliance will --

:45:00.:45:07.

towards self-reliance. I have spoken to Paris that have lost children in

:45:08.:45:10.

Somalia. I think every parent watching this programme will

:45:11.:45:12.

understand the case for delivering aid. This commitment is about

:45:13.:45:18.

something very fundamental in our DNA, about compassion, empathy and

:45:19.:45:22.

caring about people in other places that are at the sharp end. We can't

:45:23.:45:26.

let children suffer because of a very ideological debate on the part

:45:27.:45:28.

of some people against aid. It is not ideological. People say we

:45:29.:45:40.

need to sort out our own children first. We will leave it there.

:45:41.:45:42.

This programme has learned that men who have been left unable to have

:45:43.:45:46.

sex following treatment for prostate cancer cannot get the corrective

:45:47.:45:48.

Erectile dysfunction is a potentially devastating

:45:49.:45:53.

complication which can occur following the removal of all or part

:45:54.:45:56.

Until recently, surgery to correct the problem was widely

:45:57.:45:59.

However, we have found that more and more patients are being refused

:46:00.:46:03.

local funding for the procedure, leading to a postcode lottery

:46:04.:46:06.

for those awaiting treatment, as Matthew Hill reports.

:46:07.:46:08.

I didn't go into any conversation that might lead down to any form

:46:09.:46:15.

of relationship or anything, just in case we got to the stage

:46:16.:46:18.

where she would realise that I didn't have any use

:46:19.:46:21.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK,

:46:22.:46:27.

with over 40,000 new cases diagnosed every year.

:46:28.:46:30.

When he was in his 40s, this man, who we are calling Richard

:46:31.:46:34.

to protect his privacy, was diagnosed with the disease.

:46:35.:46:38.

The operation to remove his prostate gland cured him of the cancer,

:46:39.:46:42.

but it left him with a legacy of problems, including

:46:43.:46:45.

an inability to get an erection, or to control when he would urinate.

:46:46.:46:50.

For about eight months after the operation...

:46:51.:46:59.

I couldn't laugh, because I was frightened that

:47:00.:47:05.

Even at work, I had to wear dark trousers

:47:06.:47:12.

All my symptoms that I had after the operation

:47:13.:47:17.

was actually just came out, so that was the incontinence,

:47:18.:47:20.

the erectile dysfunction, so those were just standard,

:47:21.:47:23.

I wasn't able to use the pump until a few...

:47:24.:47:29.

They give you a pump because they say that you've got

:47:30.:47:39.

to start using it in order to keep the blood flow into the penis.

:47:40.:47:43.

So I used the pump almost as soon as I possibly could.

:47:44.:47:47.

How devastating was that on your life?

:47:48.:47:49.

So devastating that, before the operation,

:47:50.:47:52.

I was prepared to die than to not have any function of my prostate.

:47:53.:48:02.

Because I couldn't imagine walking around wearing an incontinent pad,

:48:03.:48:07.

not getting erections, not getting any sensation.

:48:08.:48:11.

I wasn't sure what it was going to be like when you pass a woman,

:48:12.:48:17.

I wasn't sure what was going to happen.

:48:18.:48:21.

So for me, I didn't want the operation.

:48:22.:48:23.

But if the pump and medication fail, there is a remedy.

:48:24.:48:25.

It involves major surgery to insert an inflatable penile implant.

:48:26.:48:30.

This is a serious operation, but it is for people

:48:31.:48:33.

suffering serious problems, and is used as a last resort.

:48:34.:48:38.

These are the cylinders that are placed in the patient.

:48:39.:48:42.

This is the pump, which is carefully tucked away

:48:43.:48:46.

And this is a reservoir of fluid that is put out of harm's way

:48:47.:48:53.

When I press the pump, you can see the cylinders

:48:54.:49:00.

get filled with fluid, so after just a few pumps, you will

:49:01.:49:03.

Now, the excellent bioengineering means that by pressing the valve

:49:04.:49:14.

at the top of the pump here, holding it down, we then can squeeze

:49:15.:49:20.

the fluid back from these cylinders into the reservoir.

:49:21.:49:25.

The operation costs between ?9,000-10,000.

:49:26.:49:34.

But it can transform patients' lives.

:49:35.:49:36.

The confidence that I've got in talking to women and stuff...

:49:37.:49:46.

I've also found, I'm not sure if this is supposed

:49:47.:49:58.

I have less incontinence, so I can laugh more and do sit ups

:49:59.:50:03.

A few years ago, this operation was available

:50:04.:50:10.

Centres like Southmead in Bristol ten years ago were carrying out

:50:11.:50:15.

But recently, less than five operations have been carried out,

:50:16.:50:20.

because the local NHS is turning down applications for funding.

:50:21.:50:25.

It means patients are facing long delays in getting treatment.

:50:26.:50:28.

Keith, whose name and identity we've changed, says the waiting

:50:29.:50:31.

Obviously there's no sex involved in the marriage.

:50:32.:50:38.

But apart from that, I tend to be thinking

:50:39.:50:40.

It's very difficult to talk about, even as a married couple.

:50:41.:50:47.

There's this contact that you have which constantly reminds you of it,

:50:48.:50:52.

Shunned away, if you like, purely to do that.

:50:53.:50:57.

And of course there's the thing that when I talk about it,

:50:58.:51:00.

Consequently she tends to sort of, oh no, here he goes again.

:51:01.:51:07.

When in actual fact, you know, I then start thinking,

:51:08.:51:10.

you're not listening, you're not interested,

:51:11.:51:12.

It's not something that once a month or once a year,

:51:13.:51:24.

And we've learned that where you live has a big

:51:25.:51:29.

impact on your chances of getting the operation.

:51:30.:51:31.

It's a postcode lottery, but one of the worst performing

:51:32.:51:33.

regions in the country is the South West.

:51:34.:51:36.

In 2015/16, hospitals there performed just six operations.

:51:37.:51:39.

In the North East, they are doing much better.

:51:40.:51:42.

Hospitals there carried out 53 operations over

:51:43.:51:45.

And that's with one of the lowest populations of men aged over 40.

:51:46.:51:51.

Whereas in the South West, they have a fairly average

:51:52.:51:54.

So you are 19 times more likely to receive the operation if you live

:51:55.:52:03.

in the North East than if you live in the South West.

:52:04.:52:06.

A leading surgeon has seen the devastating effect erectile

:52:07.:52:10.

He says men are being unfairly short-changed.

:52:11.:52:15.

What it means for men is that there is nowhere to go.

:52:16.:52:18.

These are by definition men who have reached the end of the line

:52:19.:52:21.

They only qualify for this treatment if everything else has failed.

:52:22.:52:27.

So essentially they sit in limbo, and have been, some of them,

:52:28.:52:32.

It has quite significant psychological, physical and social

:52:33.:52:41.

effects, effect on relationships, relationship breakdowns, depression,

:52:42.:52:46.

there is also quite serious but not so well recognised effects.

:52:47.:52:50.

If you had breast cancer surgery, then the NHS on the whole

:52:51.:52:53.

But this is not true for men who have undergone cancer surgery.

:52:54.:53:05.

Keith has been told he can have the operation, but not locally.

:53:06.:53:08.

He must travel to London, well over 100 miles away.

:53:09.:53:11.

That's a thought that Richard finds shocking,

:53:12.:53:13.

given his own experience of having the operation.

:53:14.:53:17.

My concern would be, how would somebody from Cornwall go

:53:18.:53:24.

all the way to London, because it's a five-hour drive?

:53:25.:53:30.

After I had the operation, my brother came to pick me

:53:31.:53:32.

up from the hospital, and I went to sit down,

:53:33.:53:35.

I then shoved, and put my bum, and because you've got

:53:36.:53:39.

to wear a seat belt, I then had to go into

:53:40.:53:42.

And even with every bump he went over, I could feel it.

:53:43.:53:49.

So if I then had to go to London and travel in the back of the car

:53:50.:53:55.

on all fours for an hour and a half, it would be very traumatic

:53:56.:53:59.

NHS England want to put an end to this lottery by setting up

:54:00.:54:06.

a designated centre somewhere in the South.

:54:07.:54:09.

It could be here at Southmead or in Southampton, for instance.

:54:10.:54:12.

Until then, it says patients will continue to be seen locally.

:54:13.:54:18.

But the surgeons I've spoken to say in reality there simply isn't

:54:19.:54:21.

the funding for local operations, so it seems men will continue

:54:22.:54:24.

I've heard of people my age going along to the GP saying

:54:25.:54:31.

I'm having problems, and the doctor turns round and says,

:54:32.:54:33.

You are young, you should be out there, you should be

:54:34.:54:43.

And this affects your quality of life.

:54:44.:54:55.

Matthew Hill reporting. These figures are to do with waiting times

:54:56.:55:05.

for NHS England. These are the last figures we will get before the

:55:06.:55:09.

general election. They said waiting times were the worst for four years.

The health foundation think tank says 2 million people had to wait

:55:16.:55:22.

more than four hours to get seen in the year 2016-2017. That is up from

:55:23.:55:30.

just 900,000. Waiting times targets missed again and these are the worst

:55:31.:55:35.

figures in at least four years. 2.5 million people waiting longer than

general election manifesto, that is all the promises it will deliver if

:55:49.:55:53.

it wins the general election. This is what John McDonnell has had to

:55:54.:55:58.

say this morning. Do you know who leaked your manifesto? No, I do not.

:55:59.:56:02.

It is disappointing. We have the clause five meeting and that will

decide the final manifesto. Do you recognise these policies? Do you

what comes out, we have a democratic process to decided and then we will

launch it on Tuesday. I have got to catch my bus. Do you think it is a

:56:20.:56:26.

social manifesto? How will you pay for this? It means tens of billions

:56:27.:56:32.

of pounds. Let's walk along, do not fall over. The clause five meeting

:56:33.:56:36.

will happen today and that will decide the final draft and we will

:56:52.:56:56.

Labour a head start. Or I can say at my age is I have heard it all before

:56:57.:57:01.

which promises everything and will deliver very little. It is like

:57:02.:57:04.

going into a sweet shop and being told I can have all the sweet I want

:57:05.:57:09.

and someone else will pay for them. It is bigger blue. It says, the leak
