11:37 pm
journalist, you need a friend page, you need things to write about and this is a good story in the sense that it shows that there is unhappiness in the tory party. but it would be surprising if there wasn't with their direct rise in taxes. they are supposed to be a low taxes. they are supposed to be a low tax party. taxes. they are supposed to be a low tax -a . ., ., tax party. 0k, front page of the ft, then. this could _ tax party. 0k, front page of the ft, then. this could be _ tax party. 0k, front page of the ft, then. this could be a _ tax party. 0k, front page of the ft, then. this could be a good - then. this could be a good news story for the conservatives, caroline. story for the conservatives, caroline-— story for the conservatives, caroline.- what - story for the conservatives, caroline.- what is - story for the conservatives, caroline.- what is it l story for the conservatives, - caroline.- what is it going to caroline. good. what is it going to take, caroline. good. what is it going to take. though. _ caroline. good. what is it going to take, though, because _ caroline. good. what is it going to take, though, because mister- caroline. good. what is it going to take, though, because mister sunak says he is going to do whatever it takes to recover from covid—19, says he is going to do whatever it takes to recoverfrom covid—19, so what is he offering this week? he is very aware. — what is he offering this week? he is very aware. of— what is he offering this week? he is very aware, of course, _ what is he offering this week? he is very aware, of course, with - what is he offering this week? he is very aware, of course, with very low ending _ very aware, of course, with very low ending and — very aware, of course, with very low ending and what we hate psychologically is something being taken _ psychologically is something being taken away from us much worse than if we never_ taken away from us much worse than if we never had it in the first place — if we never had it in the first place so— if we never had it in the first place. so what he is hoping to boost the return _ place. so what he is hoping to boost the return to work for vulnerable industries — the return to work for vulnerable industries and under peopled sectors is this— industries and under peopled sectors is this {500,000,000 fit of booty. in is this £500,000,000 fit of booty. in real— is this {500,000,000 fit of booty. in real terms, this amounts to career— in real terms, this amounts to career advice, this amounts to work coaches _ career advice, this amounts to work coaches so. — career advice, this amounts to work coaches so. i— career advice, this amounts to work coaches. so, i mean i always think these _ coaches. so, i mean i always think these things are as good as people are prepared to deploy them and how it is going _ are prepared to deploy them and how it is going to be measured and

11:39 pm
sense in theory, but in practice, it is going to be a lot more difficult and there will be mismatches particularly with older workers having to do with skills. so the government is sort of talking tough and hoping everything will be all right, but i suspect for some people it will be a little bit more difficult, and i don't think, while it is great that rishi sunak has been putting that 500,000,000 down from i don't think it is enough. i think if we were serious about this, we would have been investing in british records and their skills, and we will have been investing in their workers and their skills to a three years ago, not now. i their workers and their skills to a three years ago, not now.- three years ago, not now. i have “ust three years ago, not now. i have just been — three years ago, not now. i have just been passed _ three years ago, not now. i have just been passed a _ three years ago, not now. i have just been passed a piece - three years ago, not now. i have just been passed a piece of - three years ago, not now. i have| just been passed a piece of paper with a little bit more detail, the worker that the — the workers that they are targeting are those leaving that very low scheme, the unemployed �*505 that very low scheme, the unemployed �*50s can a kick starter for the young people, and the money, it says, is going to be coming from the education and work and pensions department, which means they will be losing money. ok, let us turn to the same front page, this time, morrison's, what have you made up the story this weekend? i have to say that normally, supermarket sales
11:40 pm
stories don't actually catch my eye, however this is very interesting because it lands to the idea that morrison's is such an attractive option. so actually it was so popular that very and usually it became popular that very and usually it becam - , , . popular that very and usually it became— op - popular that very and usually it became— up an - popular that very and usually it. became_ up an auction, became the sub'ect up an auction, the result of— became the subject up an auction, the result of which _ became the subject up an auction, the result of which an _ became the subject up an auction, the result of which an american i became the subject up an auction, l the result of which an american firm has ended _ the result of which an american firm has ended up the proud owner of britain's — has ended up the proud owner of britain's most popular supermarket chain _ britain's most popular supermarket chain so _ britain's most popular supermarket chain. so obviously that has caused both great— chain. so obviously that has caused both great celebration in the boardroom, but also concerns in other— boardroom, but also concerns in other parts — boardroom, but also concerns in other parts of the ecosystem. yes, concerns, obviously, _ other parts of the ecosystem. 1a: concerns, obviously, because there is going to have to be a bit of asset disposal to get the returns back, tony. asset disposal to get the returns back. tony-— asset disposal to get the returns back, ton . , ., . . back, tony. yes. the union cosmic labour back, tony. yes. the union cosmic labour party _ back, tony. yes. the union cosmic labour party has — back, tony. yes. the union cosmic labour party has set _ back, tony. yes. the union cosmic labour party has set her— labour party has set her preemptively said that we need to talk about pain conditions and we need assurances for workers, but it is just a reminder that although there are a lot of things not going particularly right at the moment, one thing that britain does have is an extremely competitive supermarket sector with four or five more, an extremely competitive supermarket sector with four orfive more, in fact, major, majorsupermarkets all
11:41 pm
on price and availability, and that is definitely a really good thing for us as a country and for consumers it's a good thing. so to me, this is a reminder that camino, morrison's, the fourth supermarket in the country is a very attractive proposition to investors across the world. , ., , , ., world. they do seem very attractive to forei . n world. they do seem very attractive to foreign investors. _ world. they do seem very attractive to foreign investors. absolutely. i world. they do seem very attractive | to foreign investors. absolutely. we are turning to the front page of the guardian in their opening pandora's box. caroline. i’ii guardian in their opening pandora's box. caroline.— box. caroline. i'll my goodness, it's a very _ box. caroline. i'll my goodness, it's a very impressive _ box. caroline. i'll my goodness, it's a very impressive friend - box. caroline. i'll my goodness, i it's a very impressive friend page. over 100 billionaires, 300 public officials, we know that this is beyond these national borders, this has been applied over by journalists, hugejournalistic efforts, so congratulations to them, and this country, it's a combination of panorama and the guardian, so i
11:42 pm
just think that, i mean, obviously people will pick these numbers and these people to pieces, it's not a good luck, but, really, this is i want to celebrate the journalistic endeavour, and it does remind us, that bit about supermarkets, when they do something well, they speak truth to power. whether it will result in any kind of, i don't know, any enforced, whether they will pay the fines of ghetto opinion or something more material, i don't know, but it has been an interesting moment of greatjournalistic efforts on many, many parts. i moment of great journalistic efforts on many, many parts.— moment of great journalistic efforts on many, many parts. i don't know if ou are on many, many parts. i don't know if you are aware. _ on many, many parts. i don't know if you are aware, tony, _ on many, many parts. i don't know if you are aware, tony, back _ on many, many parts. i don't know if you are aware, tony, back in - you are aware, tony, back injune from at the g7, i think around 130 countries signed up, didn't they, to actually tackle this idea of tax havens, it will be interesting to see how this all fits and how many of those countries have actually taken action since then. i of those countries have actually taken action since then.- taken action since then. i “ust think its fl taken action since then. i “ust think it's really i taken action since then. i “ust think it's really unfair i taken action since then. i “ust think it's really unfair to h taken action since then. ijust think it's really unfair to say l taken action since then. ijust i think it's really unfair to say that just because we are on this side... it is a naive idea.— it is a naive idea. laughter it is a naive idea. laughter i live in hope, _ it is a naive idea. laughter i live in hope, tony. - it is a naive idea. laughter i live in hope, tony. 0k, - it is a naive idea. laughter i live in hope, tony. 0k, we| it is a naive idea. laughter . i live in hope, tony. 0k, we are i live in hope, tony. ok, we are going to turn to the front page of the mirror. the front page of the

11:44 pm
