Hello. Can I have a photo? Thank you. Hello Theresa. Hi. Hello, nice

:00:17.:00:33.

to meet you. He sent you a bunch of flowers from your college recently

:00:34.:00:39.

to your home Oh, yes! We understand you like white lilies. I do, indeed.

:00:40.:00:44.

That's great, thank you. It's fantastic. How's business generally

:00:45.:00:49.

for you? Small towns struggle. But we would like to see more businesses

:00:50.:00:53.

coming in. It's a fabulous place. There's lots of customers we do very

:00:54.:00:57.

well here. We would like to see more businesses. Encourage more here.

:00:58.:01:01.

Yeah they do a great role helping tone courage other businesses and

:01:02.:01:05.

sour port them around the town. We do lovely wedding flowers which

:01:06.:01:09.

Nicola will tell you. I was in China. I missed Nicola's wedding

:01:10.:01:16.

unfortunately. Good to see you. Can I ask about the help to buy system?

:01:17.:01:22.

Why was it people were handed ?1,000 were allowed to buy a lot of them

:01:23.:01:27.

houses when it really set out was a good system, really set out for

:01:28.:01:33.

people cob afford to pay that -- couldn't afford that pay that? There

:01:34.:01:36.

are several different systems. You're talking about the right to

:01:37.:01:42.

buy? Yes. I think it was right that people who had, as you say, many of

:01:43.:01:45.

whom had never had the opportunity to buy or never thought they'd have

:01:46.:01:48.

an opportunity to buy were able to do that. We have extended right to

:01:49.:01:53.

buy. We're looking at it, what we do for the future. I was saying to you

:01:54.:01:59.

is this: It wasn't meant for people who could afford, had ?100,000

:02:00.:02:05.

wages. If you look at the latest statistics, they showed quite a lot

:02:06.:02:09.

of them people got them and the lower down people didn't get so

:02:10.:02:15.

many. The people ?40,000. For the right to buy, if it was to buy a

:02:16.:02:20.

council house. No, no. Nothing about council houses. It was a system in

:02:21.:02:28.

the 2015 things. Sorry, yes. Help to buy. Yes. It was almost stated that

:02:29.:02:34.

it was people could twist the system and it's obviously they got away

:02:35.:02:38.

with it. Well, help to buy is working. Because tens of thousands

:02:39.:02:41.

of young people have been able to get onto the housing ladder. Across

:02:42.:02:46.

the country, remember, the sort of house costs do vary significantly.

:02:47.:02:49.

If you look in London and south-east for an area like this for example,

:02:50.:02:54.

it's really difficult for people often to get houses because there's

:02:55.:02:58.

such high costs. I'll accept that. So you have to have a scheme that

:02:59.:03:02.

acome dates a variety of people. I still think rich people jumped on

:03:03.:03:06.

the band wagon and got houses that they shouldn't have got. And other

:03:07.:03:12.

people that should have had a chance lower down the scale. It has helped

:03:13.:03:17.

tens of thousands of people who are low down the scale in terms of their

:03:18.:03:21.

income able to get, as have other things like shared ownership and so

:03:22.:03:25.

forth that we've put together. OK. Thank you. Nice to see you. My

:03:26.:03:34.

children went to the same school as you. Oh, really. That's interesting.

:03:35.:03:41.

Thanks for all your help. Thank you very much. Are you going to help

:03:42.:03:46.

people with learning difficulties, stick up for them? I'm for learning

:03:47.:03:52.

difficulties. I've been crippled by them because they chuck me out

:03:53.:03:55.

because I got a border line and I'm being serious, I want you to do

:03:56.:04:00.

something for us. We've got a lot of plans for people with mental health

:04:01.:04:08.

and learning disabilities. And learning disabilities. I would like

:04:09.:04:12.

somebody to help me because I can't do everything I want to do. People

:04:13.:04:17.

say because I don't look the part, because I don't look like I have

:04:18.:04:20.

mental health and learning disabilities I don't get anything.

:04:21.:04:23.

That's one of the problems we've got to sort out. I'm sticking up for

:04:24.:04:27.

health and learning disabilities because remember there was a man who

:04:28.:04:32.

killed somebody in the pound shop and I feel sorry for him. We've done

:04:33.:04:36.

a lot to help, haven't we. I'm talking about everybody, not just

:04:37.:04:40.

me. And anybody who has learning disabilities I want them not to have

:04:41.:04:44.

their money taken away from them and being crippled. We are going to do -

:04:45.:04:48.

The fat cats keep the money and us lot get nothing. We're going to do a

:04:49.:04:53.

number of things. Let me tell you something - You know what I want, I

:04:54.:04:58.

want my erm...... Disability Living Allowance to come back not have PIPs

:04:59.:05:02.

and get nothing. I can't live on ?100 a month. They took it all away

:05:03.:05:07.

from me. You're going to write to me for that. So I can help you. Who's

:05:08.:05:12.

going to help me. You can't write for them. Deborah is going to help

:05:13.:05:17.

you. No, she's not my career any more. You told me she was going to.

:05:18.:05:22.

She can't. She has a lot of things you know. I'm sure we'll find a way.

:05:23.:05:27.

I can get my socialist to write. Yes, what you're talking about, in

:05:28.:05:32.

your case - No for everybody not just for me. I know. I'm sticking up

:05:33.:05:36.

for them because I go to a club for disabled people. What I'm saying,

:05:37.:05:40.

Kathy, Nicola can help you specifically. What I can do is

:05:41.:05:43.

ensure we give more help to people with mental health - And learning

:05:44.:05:49.

disabilities. And that's exactly - People in wheelchairs and everybody.

:05:50.:05:52.

For all of us. That's what we want to ensure when we look at the help

:05:53.:05:56.

we give to people with any disability, particularly we focus on

:05:57.:05:59.

those who are most in need so that we're helping those. I think I am,

:06:00.:06:04.

because I'm vulnerable to everything so I've been told. You better help

:06:05.:06:14.

me, please. Thank you. Make them have it, Theresa.

:06:15.:06:23.

We have tough work ahead. I used to live here. I think you're doing a

:06:24.:06:28.

marvellous job. Keep it up. We want to leave. Provided I'm elected on

:06:29.:06:33.

the 8th of June, we will. I'm confident you will be. Thank you.

:06:34.:06:45.

I'm a Labour man but... Thank you. Hello. Hi. Hello. Nice to see you.

:06:46.:06:53.

I've voted Labour all my life but you've got my vote this time. Thank

:06:54.:06:57.

you very much. Thank you. Nice to meet you. Thank you very much, thank

:06:58.:07:05.

you. Hello. Lovely to meet you. All the way from Grimsby first thing

:07:06.:07:08.

this morning. What time are you out normally? About 1. 30. Finish about

:07:09.:07:14.

9pm. I try my best. You get good business here in the market?

:07:15.:07:18.

Absolutely, yeah. I'm appreciative of how it's going and hopefully

:07:19.:07:21.

continue to develop. Its good to be able to have fresh fish. Absolutely

:07:22.:07:26.

yeah. I try to and give the people something to look forward to every

:07:27.:07:30.

week. Good, excellent. Very good. Looks like you have some people

:07:31.:07:37.

wanting to buy. I'm getting in the way of business. Nice to see you.

:07:38.:07:40.

Thanks very much. Nice to meet you both.

:07:41.:07:54.

Thank you. Lovely to see you. Congratulations. I run a business

:07:55.:08:05.

and (inaudible) With my two brothers, a small butchery business

:08:06.:08:08.

but we had to really, you couldn't make a business go here. Because the

:08:09.:08:16.

rent and rates are so high here, it's all big business you know. It's

:08:17.:08:20.

a bit unfortunate really. In the country, it's fantastic. We have a

:08:21.:08:24.

lovely business running, in the villages. We have been very

:08:25.:08:31.

successful that way. It's a shame - there's eight butchers here. It's

:08:32.:08:35.

how we are. Yes. Nice to see you any way. Good to see you. Thank you. A

:08:36.:08:41.

good win. Thank you. Hello. Nice to see you. Hello. Morning. Prime

:08:42.:08:53.

Minister, let me give a scenario, dozens of ambulances outside A,

:08:54.:08:59.

700 medical vacancies at John Radcliffe not filled, we have the

:09:00.:09:02.

prospect possible disruption with nurses this summer. This is not an

:09:03.:09:07.

NHS that you want is it? What we see from the NHS over the last few years

:09:08.:09:11.

is the Government has been putting extra funding into the NHS and

:09:12.:09:15.

overall we see more doctors in the NHS, more nurses, more midwives,

:09:16.:09:20.

more GPs. We've only been able to do that because we've been

:09:21.:09:23.

strengthening our economy. If we look to the future and putting in

:09:24.:09:26.

more funding, we need to have that strong economy to do that. We have

:09:27.:09:31.

been able to, in the Budget, announce money going into A that

:09:32.:09:35.

is going to help a number of hospitals around the country to

:09:36.:09:37.

ensure that they're providing the service that we want them to provide

:09:38.:09:41.

at their A That is only possible with a strong economy. Labour would

:09:42.:09:44.

wreck the economy. That would mean less money to go into the NHS. Was

:09:45.:09:50.

what happened at the weekend, the siebary tack, was there money from

:09:51.:09:54.

infrastructure in years gone by that actually was used for the day-to-day

:09:55.:09:58.

health care, is that why we found ourselves in that situation? No the

:09:59.:10:03.

NHS, has to take care of its cyber security. I understand that warnings

:10:04.:10:09.

were issued about ensuring the cyber security was up to date. This is not

:10:10.:10:13.

something that attacked the NHS only. 150 countries are involved in

:10:14.:10:16.

this. And something like 200,000 victims. That's what Europol have

:10:17.:10:20.

said. As a Government we take cyber security very seriously. We've

:10:21.:10:24.

announced that we're putting ?2 billion into cyber security over the

:10:25.:10:28.

next few years. We set up the new national cyber security centre,

:10:29.:10:31.

which has been working with the NHS and with staff in the NHS to ensure

:10:32.:10:36.

that patient care has not been compromised. You were here today to

:10:37.:10:40.

talk about workers' rights. A raft of suggestions, proposals that you

:10:41.:10:44.

put forward. Unpaid leave to look after relatives, that's one of them.

:10:45.:10:47.

Is this one of your solutions to social care then to use families to

:10:48.:10:50.

do that? There are many people in the work place who have caring

:10:51.:10:55.

responsibilities for children or for elderly relatives and who want to

:10:56.:10:58.

have that flexibility in the work place. We are announcing today the

:10:59.:11:02.

biggest enhancement of workers' rights under a Conservative

:11:03.:11:04.

Government. It does include the ability to have time off to care for

:11:05.:11:08.

a relative. Other things as well. The national living wage, continuing

:11:09.:11:12.

to rise with median earnings - Is that going to be difficult for small

:11:13.:11:15.

businesses who say more red tape is over the top for them? I think if

:11:16.:11:19.

you look across the country today what we see from small, medium and

:11:20.:11:25.

large-sized businesses is many provide these capabilities and these

:11:26.:11:30.

abilities for their workers on a more informal basis. We want tone

:11:31.:11:35.

sure this is available to people. We want to help people returning to the

:11:36.:11:43.

work place. In Oxford today I advise and had met with women who are

:11:44.:11:48.

setting up businesses and getting back into the work place. We have an

:11:49.:11:56.

increasing ageing population here in the south. I've always said that

:11:57.:12:01.

dealing with the issues around social care and the ageing

:12:02.:12:05.

population, there are short-term, medium term and long-term solutions

:12:06.:12:11.

to that. In the short-term, we have made more money available, both

:12:12.:12:19.

councils with the 3% pre-cept and we have put more into social care. We

:12:20.:12:22.

need tone sure best practice is there around the country. And wee

:12:23.:12:28.

need a sustainable -- and we need a sustainable solution. Brexit quickly

:12:29.:12:34.

then. We have tourism here in the south, high levels, in Bournemouth,

:12:35.:12:38.

they rely on migrant workers, agriculture as well. What can you,

:12:39.:12:44.

assurances can you give them that they'll be able employ migrant

:12:45.:12:47.

workers in two years' time? As we look to Brexit and leaving the

:12:48.:12:50.

European Union, of course, we will be able to introduce our own rules

:12:51.:12:54.

for immigration, for people coming into the UK from the European Union

:12:55.:12:57.

as we have rules for people coming from outside the EU. As we've

:12:58.:13:02.

developed those rules outside the EU, we recognise the need tone sure

:13:03.:13:06.

that we deal with the needs of business and of course, we will look

:13:07.:13:09.

to do that. That's about confidence isn't it?

:13:10.:13:14.

That is about giving business confidence, we have WBM, they not

:13:15.:13:24.

committed to building the electric Minnie until they know what will

:13:25.:13:30.

happen. What companies will be looking to the Government to do is

:13:31.:13:36.

produce a good deal for Britain so we have free and frictionless trade.

:13:37.:13:43.

We have a plan to go into the negotiations working for a free

:13:44.:13:47.

trade agreement and we want to ensure that the automotive sector is

:13:48.:13:51.

competitive. To do that, was need strong and stable leadership and a

:13:52.:13:55.

strong hand in the negotiations. That is not what you would get from

:13:56.:14:00.

a coalition of chaos led by Jeremy Corbyn. Now housing, you have said

:14:01.:14:06.

you want to do more deals with council on affordable housing, you

:14:07.:14:10.

know better than anyone, the price of properties fofr people and for

:14:11.:14:15.

renting here, how many of those houses are going to come south,

:14:16.:14:21.

given that very often we are the poor cousins to the north? What is

:14:22.:14:26.

important is that we look across the United Kingdom we develop policy and

:14:27.:14:32.

our economic policy that sees jobs and growth and prosperity across the

:14:33.:14:36.

whole of the UK. There is a lot of pressure on housing here in the

:14:37.:14:42.

South, but the plans we have put forward for housing are about

:14:43.:14:46.

building more affordable homes, continuing to support young people

:14:47.:14:51.

with schemes like help to buy. But also having a flexibility in the

:14:52.:14:56.

market through schemes such as shared ownership that give people

:14:57.:14:59.

opportunities to get their foot on the housing ladder. Thank you. It

:15:00.:15:04.

was nice to have a Powwow with you, that is what it says on the wall!

:15:05.:15:07.

Thank you. We are joined by Emily Thornberry.

:15:08.:15:37.

In a few weeks time, you could be Foreign Secretary. Will you at that

:15:38.:15:43.

point tell Donald Trump he is not welcome for a state visit? No,

:15:44.:15:47.

because he has been invited and I think it was a mistake to invite him

:15:48.:15:54.

as quickly as he was invited, frankly, President Obama had to wait

:15:55.:16:01.

for years. Some people would say so much for your radical change. Jeremy

:16:02.:16:04.

Corbyn said he was not welcome in Britain. I mean... It takes these

:16:05.:16:07.

things in

:16:08.:16:09.
