jessica, this final vote on brexit. jessica, this isa final vote on brexit. jessica, this is a humiliation, isn't it? andjust think at the end of last week edward like theresa may was in a really strong position on moving the brexit talks on to the next stage, so we can talks on to the next stage, so we ca n start talks on to the next stage, so we can start to talk about trade. and suddenly she was going into the summit on the back of a really humiliating defeat in parliament, and the european leaders might start saying to each other, is she really going to have the backing to deliver a deal, even if we agree it? the whole point about brexit, steve, some would argue, is that parliament would get primacy, it would be the final arbiter of laws in this country. and surely the rebels at the tory party would argue this, and labour and the lib dems and the snp would say, this is what brexit is all about. there is that line, you wa nt all about. there is that line, you want to take back control, this is it. it is driving them mad. this is got to come back to the commons for
10:46 pm
another reading so it could be changed, but it is the tone, the shift. it is what it means full stop theresa may tomorrow morning goes to brussels about a crunch summit about the start of trade talks. now her negotiating hand is weakened by this. you have three different things, the arch remainers who now think that brexit can be stopped, people like lord adonis saying this is the first step, we can derail this. the arch brexiteers who always thought this was going to happen, something would stop it. and the tory party is furious with these rivals, saying it hands the initiative to the eu. how does it possibly help our party? the front page of the daily mail as welcome which we will bring up, it is reporting on this story. i think it will come, here it is, eventually. jessica, the fact is, i know we all said, it is a hoary old phrase, a
10:47 pm
week is a long time in politics, theresa may last week flying to brussels was enjoying her eggs benedict, heurtaux stand her orange juice. she has no appetite on that plane tomorrow, has she? she will be as sick as a pig! this has been the hallmark basically of theresa may's entire career as pm, about how quickly things can change will stop look at that front page. proud of yourselves question? yourselves i look at that front page. proud of yourselves i mean, what is that?! to be honest, they probably are proud of themselves. jess was pointing out, the telegraph front page where they had the mutineers were stopped nicky morgan tonight, a lot of these tory mps will face huge problems in their own constituencies, but she is saying the telegraph front page, they will have t—shirts made of it. it emboldened them. 17 million
10:48 pm
people wanted brexit, remember, so a lot of them will say, great, they would be happy about this. but all these mps are the ones on the front of the daily mail, they will make the point that this is not going to derail brexit. this is backing brexit up, it is giving the people a voice. these mps voted for article 50, the moment of triggering it that set the two—year timeline in motion, which means that, unless we unilaterally withdraw it, then we are leaving the eu at the end of the process. this doesn't derail it, but does it make a softer brexit more likely, is that the underlying motivation for some of these rebels? probably. there is a vote next week, we get an amendment about the end date. that will be key, because of the rebels rebel then, there will be real issues. because then they would be accused of starving brexit. sure, absolutely. the financial times,
10:49 pm
sticking with brexit. banks defied gloomy brexit with forecast with plans to just remove 6% of london jobs. the suggestion was there would be the flight of the talents in the banking world, steve, but actually the banks think it is all 0k. 696 doesn't define all 0k the banks think it is all 0k. 696 doesn't define all ok i suppose, but it is big, coming from the ft. they have been very pro—remain. they will be happy with the night's vote. there was a all these jobs this is just 6%. who knows, if the transition deal comes, which is the main thing about tomorrow, then everyone takes a breath, justices will keep the jobs here. it is the la st will keep the jobs here. it is the last part that perhaps we should be more worried about, it says it is not about what happens on day one, it is three to five years down the line. but jessica, your newspaper, doom and gloom when it comes to brexit. the sky will fall in, it will all be a disaster. the front
10:50 pm
page of the financial times, look at that! how unfair! (!) this is the ft's that! how unfair! (!) this is the ft‘s own analysis of how it will go. it is different to the city bosses who say we will have to move unless we get a deal. it sort of shows you how much they are trying to influence it. there was a tweet if you weeks ago from the ceo of goldman sachs, saying i havejust been to frankfurt, what a lovely place this is, i will spend a lot more time here. it is all mood music. this is reality. these are the raw figures. at the moment, 6% is still significant. that is interesting, given the vote tonight, and that mps will now have more than likely the final say on a deal, are you going to get these constituencies, the banking sector, they will build ringing up their local mps, when they they went bother going to theresa may any
10:51 pm
more, just ring up the guy in the constituency office. when all the dust settles down, labour stops patting itself on the back, you have the european parliament's main negotiator in the telegraph crowing about this is a great day for democracy. that will go down like a lead balloon in the tory party, you have the opposition, as such, crowing about what a great job the rebels have done. looks like it will bea rebels have done. looks like it will be a softer brexit, that is what they need, what they want. i have forgotten your point now, clive! that is the beauty of the hung parliament. people can ring up their mp, try and change their minds, and it might change what the government says. it is the beauty of representative democracy. that snapped election, well done, theresa. which is why we don't often
10:52 pm
have referenda in this country, some might argue. i wonder what david cameron would say? indeed. back to the telegraph, nhs staff ‘s shortages, millennials demanding career breaks? it is probably true, i probablyjust career breaks? it is probably true, i probably just about fit into career breaks? it is probably true, i probablyjust about fit into the millennial bracket. wow. i feel like my contemporaries definitely want more flexible working hours, to work from home or, take a couple of months off and work longer hours for other months. i think the world of work is changing. it is something employers need to adapt to and it is healthier. so many studies showing it is. not healthy for the nhs, though, that seems to be the problem! while you are enjoying your holidays, whatever, staff are needed in the nhs, so it is causing a problem here. there could be more
10:53 pm
bursaries fitness training and that sort of thing. it is easier to blame millennials who want a holiday. when robots are doing everything from you could have a really long career break. but nursing would be one of those areas where you could not get it to do it properly, that's the thing. some of the things you hear from perhaps the older, my generation, but they talk sometimes about the younger staff who come in, and their work ethic, and there is that divergences. the older worker who has been used to working eight till seven, the young ones come in and say i don't want to do that.|j don't and say i don't want to do that.” don't think it is necessarily about not wanting to work hard. it isjust different, yes. and flexibility. being a bit more constructive with your use of time, i suppose. jessica, women feel more unhappy than men until they reach their mid—80s. than men until they reach their mid-80s. there is a quake orton
10:54 pm
great quote, some of your viewers might be thinking, i wonder why that is? psychiatrists say it is maybe because so many is? psychiatrists say it is maybe because so many are is? psychiatrists say it is maybe because so many are widowed by them. that might be a reason! women decide to become happier when they are widowed! when they haven't got blokes hanging around them being a pain? i am not too sure about that. this great stat that men who are widowed, single or divorced are more vulnerable to developing depression, but married women are more likely to develop depression. there is a real insinuation running through this. we shouldn't dwell on that, steve. we will go to the express was to look at this photograph, ladies and gentlemen. this is a squirrel, and he has got his nuts, and there is a bird wanting to fly in and nick his nuts, or her nuts. look at that, fantastic photograph. it is ice. ice
10:55 pm
age squirrel in shock as cheeky bird pinches it snapped. look at the photograph beneath. there is a nut inside the ice, i am being told. our photo copier is on the blink and i can't see a dam thing. at the bottom of the page is this story about a whole christmas dinner, battered and fried. brussels sprouts, chicken, the potato, everything, deep—fried. steve ? the potato, everything, deep—fried. steve? perfect. we had our christmas party la st steve? perfect. we had our christmas party last night so i probably could have finished this off at lunchtime. orat have finished this off at lunchtime. or at five have finished this off at lunchtime. oratfive in have finished this off at lunchtime. or at five in the morning when he got home, more like it! it is one of those great stories of christmas, it takes you away from some of the more serious stuff, but it is a fish bar in devon that has deep—fried everything. we will have to try it, bring it in, clive. jessica? it says
10:56 pm
£9 95. i don't know how much people spend on christmas dinners for themselves, but you end up spending quite a lot. that seems like really good value. it is the deep—fried mince pie that comes with it in the box that puts me off. the quote from the chip shop owner, andrew marshall. it is a little heavy. laughter jessica, stephen, good to see you. thanks for that, and to youth are watching. that is it for the night. don't forget, you can see all of the front pages of the papers online and the bbc website. it's all there for you — seven days a week at bbc dot co uk forward slash papers — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you jessica elgot and steve hawkes. goodbye. quite a vigorous feature
