looking particularly attractive opposition for many people to vote for. they don't appear to be offering anything too much different that would be great change. so maybe people are thinking it's better the devil you know at the moment. we are coming through 18 months which have been unprecedented in our lifetimes. maybe people are thinking look, let's see where we are, there has been this perfect storm of various problems including problems as a result of brexit as things realign. obviously with the pandemic as well. maybe people do think they can't just wave a magic wand and everything will be right. however they have been found wanting in the last few weeks and months i think it that will have an effect. but unless there is some opposition comes up with a better proposition i think we are stuck with what we got until 2024 at least anyway. keir starmer on the front — 2024 at least anyway. keir starmer on the front page _ 2024 at least anyway. keir starmer on the front page of _ 2024 at least anyway. keir starmer on the front page of the _ 2024 at least anyway. keir starmer on the front page of the moors - 2024 at least anyway. keir starmer on the front page of the moors andj on the front page of the moors and

10:41 pm
do you make of the governments response to this? i do you make of the governments response to this?— response to this? i think boris johnson response to this? i think boris johnson this — response to this? i think boris johnson this weekend - response to this? i think boris johnson this weekend we've . response to this? i think boris i johnson this weekend we've got johnson this weekend we've got the start of the tory party conference and this is one of his round of interviews ease chosen to give this to the times. the criticism of the police and clearly there is a lot of criticism of the police and the criminaljustice criticism of the police and the criminal justice system criticism of the police and the criminaljustice system and the way that it treats women and young girls. the police have been cold a misogynist service particularly the metropolitan police. he saying that it's infuriating that the way women and girls being treated when they come forward with allegations whether they been victims of abuse in the streets or they've been flash in the streets or they've been flash in the streets or they've been flash in the street, some things that have been treated by the police as low level and something that's not important. clearly borisjohnson wants to get this message across that this is important, police should look at every single one of these cases. he also says it's infuriating to see how slowly these
10:42 pm
cases go through the criminal justice system. he says that they more of these cases being reported but this view from being being prosecuted as well. there is a problem. ease wanting to be seen here to be tough on us and he had to be in the wake of what happened with sarah macro at two and the conviction of rain couzens. everyone is been appalled by it. today i dropped off my 17 —year—old daughter on the way to school. i was just about to drop her off i saw there was a group of young then nearby and i moved on forward with the car and dropped her off. it's on everyone's mind at the moment. i think the police need to get their house in order clearly with us and within this interview he does say that we still do trust the police and we can back the police however there is clearly something wrong in the way that they are listening to women and young girls. and women and young girls in this country need to feel safe and at the moment they don't. yasmin, it's been devastating set of revelations in the last few days.
10:43 pm

turning to the daily telegraph, there headline is patel says must take women seriously. i don't know where europe paper stands on president addict there's been some call that she should be redesigning. could thatjust be a token move, with change anything? in could thatjust be a token move, with change anything?— could thatjust be a token move, with change anything? in this piece is well it mentions _ with change anything? in this piece is well it mentions at _ with change anything? in this piece is well it mentions at the _ with change anything? in this piece is well it mentions at the home - is well it mentions at the home office in various are getting more frustrated with cressida dick. they've given her a two year contrast and she has to get on top of the serious crime. there doesn't seem to be a lot of confidence in terms of newspapers, the editorials not much confidence in her doing that. would a chilly call for her to go but they didn't seem to be a great deal of support her across the newspaper industry and the people who bright the leaders. but looking at this priti patel is saying a very similar think that borisjohnson, is listen to women, take what they're saying seriously, if there's been an
