10:31 pm
with me are lizzy burden, economics reporterfor bloomberg geraldine scott, political correspondent at the press association. tomorrow's front pages, starting with... a global boom for the private equity industry leads on the front of the ft as it reports on the soaring shares of bridgepoint advisors. reports on the soaring shares meanwhile, the metro focuses on the impact self isolations are having on superarkets — which it illustrates with empty shelves as stocks as staff are caught up in the �*pingdemic�*. on the same story, the sun reports supermarkets�* warnings to the prime minister that there's 48 hours left to resolve the pings or face empty shelves. and business chiefs�* calls for store workers to be included on the isolation exemption list lead on the front of the telegraph, as it also leads on strains on supermarkets.
10:32 pm
supermarket shelves laid bare is also the front of the mail — it reports 1.7 million workers are thought to be in quarantine. the mirror also reflects the same story on its front, but leads on the pay rise for nhs staff. it asks �*is that really all they are worth' as it reports the 3% increase. on the same story — the guardian reports nurses are likely to reject the award as too low and may take industrial action in protest. so let's begin... i think we should start with the sun because the paintings are running out. this is a story that's on almost all of the front pages. geraldine, if i start with you, pings are running out. this of course is after huge numbers of people have been pinged by the nhs covid app. an illustrated with a picture of the empty shelves. yes. picture of the empty shelves. yes, that's not the _ picture of the empty shelves. yes, that's not the first _ picture of the empty shelves. yes, that's not the first time _ picture of the empty shelves. yes that's not the first time we'd seen
10:33 pm
empty shelves during this pandemic, is a? but for a completely different reason. i think any of us really don't know someone who is now been pained as we opened up. of course that was to be expected in the government has said that that is to be expected all along. i think what was maybe not anticipated is the massive impact that is can have on the food supply chain for whether that's lorry drivers, people that work in factories, people work and processing plants. it's causing massive problems and businesses are crying out for help. the massive problems and businesses are crying out for help-— crying out for help. the pictures of the empty shelves _ crying out for help. the pictures of the empty shelves around - crying out for help. the pictures of the empty shelves around several| crying out for help. the pictures of. the empty shelves around several of the empty shelves around several of the front pages. it doesn't mean that every shot in the country has empty shelves. these photographers happen to have found some, haven't they? happen to have found some, haven't the ? ., , ., �* ., they? know, but i wouldn't want to underestimate _ they? know, but i wouldn't want to underestimate this _ they? know, but i wouldn't want to underestimate this problem - they? know, but i wouldn't want to underestimate this problem of- they? know, but i wouldn't want to underestimate this problem of the | underestimate this problem of the scale _ underestimate this problem of the scale that— underestimate this problem of the scale that brings a get a wake to tomorrow — scale that brings a get a wake to tomorrow. this is affecting 1.7 million — tomorrow. this is affecting 1.7 million workers. and it's

10:35 pm
would benefit from any exemption scheme. in otherwords, if would benefit from any exemption scheme. in other words, if you are at pained. you would necessarily have to self—isolate. —— pained. have you heard any more when we might get the detail on that? we've been exneeting _ might get the detail on that? we've been exneeting a — might get the detail on that? we've been expecting a list _ might get the detail on that? we've been expecting a list but _ might get the detail on that? we've been expecting a list but it - might get the detail on that? we've been expecting a list but it hasn't i been expecting a list but it hasn't materialised yet. one of the problems is that number ten has been saying that these are industries that already speak to government on a regular basis. whether that's food sunpiv, a regular basis. whether that's food supply, traffic or all those industries was up when he was asked today the prime minister couldn't actually provide a list of sectors. and could give any examples where exemptions were already in place outside of the healthcare. you can see why people are getting a little bit touchy about it. especially if we've got 48—hour warnings. august 16 is going to be far too long to wait to fix these problems. interesting picking up on what you're saying a little bit more detail in the telegraph story. bp saying several of its petro stations had to close temporarily after running low fuel and tesco saying it

shelves seeming a lack of bananas in the shot that they found. but they are leading onto the 3% pay rise for nhs staff. is that really all they are worth? i want to come to the meet, if you will of the pay deal in a minute. it might be worth you giving us a little bit of political background to this. because we are expecting this announcement all day, it was on, off, what was going on behind the scenes? do it was on, off, what was going on behind the scenes?— it was on, off, what was going on behind the scenes? do you know? i know a little _ behind the scenes? do you know? i know a little bear. _ behind the scenes? do you know? i know a little bear. i _ behind the scenes? do you know? i know a little bear. i can _ behind the scenes? do you know? i know a little bear. i can set - behind the scenes? do you know? i know a little bear. i can set all- know a little bear. i can set all the details. yes, we were expecting a statement to the comments and do reveal what pay offer the government was going to make for nhs staff was going to make for nhs staff. then she stood up and gave her speech and there was no mention of it which was a little bit perplexing. in every expected there wasn't going to be announcement today and then this afternoon this press release dropped with some details, i would say. although we've now got the figure,
10:38 pm
what we don't have is more detail on how this is going to be paid for. and exactly the details surrounding that. there's still a lot of meat to get on the bones fair. the initial reaction from the unions hasn't been positive at all. and they are afraid of strikes already. i don't think we for the last of them.— for the last of them. yes, absolutely. _ for the last of them. yes, absolutely. that - for the last of them. yes, absolutely. that mirror i for the last of them. yes, - absolutely. that mirror quotes the royal college of nursing saying staff will not take this lying down. we spoke to pat a little earlier on bbc news in the nursing unions have asked for a 12.5% pay rise. 3% a little bit up on what the government had originally offered a 1%, is it a? but still... i5 had originally offered a1%, is it a? but still...— a? but still... is less than the four presented _ a? but still... is less than the four presented nhs _ a? but still. .. is less than the four presented nhs staff- a? but still... is less than the four presented nhs staff or . a? but still... is less than the - four presented nhs staff or scotland are getting at. it four presented nhs staff or scotland are getting at— are getting at. it still excludes “unior are getting at. it still excludes junior doctors _ are getting at. it still excludes junior doctors and _ are getting at. it still excludes junior doctors and girls - are getting at. it still excludes junior doctors and girls that i are getting at. it still excludes| junior doctors and girls that are outsourced by cleaners and borders. and if— outsourced by cleaners and borders. and if you _ outsourced by cleaners and borders. and if you think about the forecasts

10:43 pm
to rewrite a key plank of the brexit deal saying that the northern island protocol was flawed at conception. but served its purpose to get the uk out of the eu as one country. geraldine, this is that he says, she says, is it? the european commission have ruled out a renegotiation. it’s have ruled out a renegotiation. it's an have ruled out a renegotiation. it�*s an impasse, is any? it is but we've seen a lot of these deadlines and cliff edges in the whole brexit saga. this does seem just like the latest one. what the uk is proposing is kind of a whole scrapping of the northern island protocol and the rewriting of it. you say they won't do that. they will be a bit flexible within it. maybe there is some wiggle room there. the uk side is clear that this is it working, businesses and it's really become a
10:44 pm
mess. ministersaid businesses and it's really become a mess. minister said today can't go on as it is and things need to change. they are proposing this standstill where everything kind of reasons for a bit so they can take the pressure off and have a proper chat about it. it doesn't sound like were going to get a break for any time soon, i don't think. the guardian _ time soon, i don't think. the guardian says _ time soon, i don't think. the guardian says the _ time soon, i don't think. the guardian says the european commission is understood to be open to some changes on the special arrangements for northern island but new tail but not no detail on the front page. on the outside seems to be difficult how they can find a way all doing that through all of this. the eu is basically saying we will work— the eu is basically saying we will work within what you have negotiated says it's audacious. of course the uk side was goin you negotiated but we _ work within what you have negotiated but we won't start all over again. work within what you have negotiated but we _ work within what you have negotiated but we won't start all over again. the uk _ but we won't start all over again. the uk negotiated this, it signed the uk _ but we won't start all over again. the uk negotiated this, it signed this northern island protocol. you this northern island protocol. you uk side was going to can understand the eu side but on can understand the eu side but on the other— the other— can understand the eu side but on the other side of it the guardian can understand the eu side but on the other side of it the guardian
