and journalist yasmin alibhai—brown and ruth lea, economic advisor at arbuthnot banking group. first, a look at all front pages that will greet us tomorrow. the metro leads with a picture of rebecca dykes, the british embassy worker who has been found dead at the side of a road in beirut. the financial times says that millennials and gig economy workers have been left behind by pension reforms. the daily express has a warning of wild winds for christmas, saying that 70 mph storm chaos is on the way. as with many of tomorrow's front pages, the telegraph also carries a picture of rebecca dykes, as well as a message from the uk government that the saudis "must stop starving yemen". the times say the tories are urging theresa may to stay on as pm over fears that a leadership election would wreck post—brexit trade talks.
the guardian reports that tory backbenchers are calling for a cross—party alliance, saying that labour are the key to securing a soft brexit. the mirror also leads with the news that a british embassy worker has been killed in beirut. are so let's begin with the guardian, that story that labour holds the key to a soft brexit, according to tory backbenchers. holds the key to a soft brexit, according to tory backbenchersm course, according to tory backbenchersm course , we according to tory backbenchersm course, we don't know which rebels have been talking to gavin barwell, but it seems that some of them have been going to him and saying, look, we should have a deal with some of the labour party, have a cross—party alliance to come up with some sort of soft brexit compromise. i think the chances of this are absolutely zero, i cannot see for one second,
one ns, that theresa may would agree toa one ns, that theresa may would agree to a cross—party alliance with the labour party, absolutely unbelievable. i do wonder what is going through the minds of rebels now, fairenough, going through the minds of rebels now, fair enough, they won the vote la st now, fair enough, they won the vote last week, they can have the vote on the framework deal at the end of 2018, but what happens if they then say, we don't really like this deal, whatever it may be, let's vote against it, what is the alternative i would like to ask dominic grieve, anna soubry. the alternative would be, presumably, falling out of the eu in march 2019 with no deal at all. no, that is not what it means, andi all. no, that is not what it means, and i think it is so wrong to present it in this binary way, and to ridicule some very, very, very real, authentic, sincere, intelligent people. it wasn't easy for those 11 people to do what they did last week, hang on, let me finish. it is not as if there is
only one way that this can happen. this is the biggest thing this country is going to go through. even you, with your very strong views, and me, with my very strong views, have to realise that between several positions there is a sea possibilities. could i ask a question, please? what if the rebels vote against any deal agreed with the eu? what will happen? yasmin, what will happen... i'm trying to a nswer what will happen... i'm trying to answer your question. you are not answering. you keep interrupting me. there isn't a deal... just a moment, ruth! you can't do this, i need to speak. barnier has just said, actually, he has cast doubt on whether the government should we allow the flexibility that we thought she had got, they cannot cherry—pick, he says. like i said, there is a range of possibilities.
we cannot carry on. i thought you had more sense thanjohnson and the rees—mogg, ruth. twice before i bring you back in, let's address this idea of reaching out, do you think there is a coalition to be formed? in a way, the labour party has got away with things for a long time, they are as divided as the tories, but they do not have the loony wing that the tories seem to have produced in people like rees—mogg. but they are as divided, they are as many labour mps who are for as against, so a coalition of people who, in my view, and it is my view, who have a more sensible, softer approach to brexit would be a good thing. two things, theresa may would not agree to that, and you have not answered my question — what happens if the rebels vote against the deal agreed between the eu and the deal agreed between the eu and the british governance? the deal agreed between the eu and the british governance ?|j the deal agreed between the eu and the british governance? i do not
accept it is agreed yet. hypothetically, what happens if they vote against any agreed deal? we keep talking. we keep talking! we keep talking. we keep talking! we keep talking. we keep talking! we keep talking. keep talking! this is not like an election, this is our destiny for the next hundred years, thatis destiny for the next hundred years, that is not about you, it is about the children and grandchildren. britain has been incredibly good at compromising, not taking hard lines. lam not compromising, not taking hard lines. i am not taking hard lines. compromising, not taking hard lines. lam not taking hard lines. i compromising, not taking hard lines. i am not taking hard lines. i am just saying, what do these people do if they vote no? i trust them to do the right thing, that is my answer. 0ne the right thing, that is my answer. one of the issues here, michel barnier has given an interview to prospect magazine, some references to the fact that he has said there will be no cherry—pick in, they are taking a pretty hard line position, saying, we will not give you a bus
broke deal, what you make of that? in the words of mandy rice—davies, he would say that, wouldn't he? grow i he would say that, wouldn't he? grow e he would say that, wouldn't he? grow up! he is a negotiator, and if you are a negotiator, you put your position here, the other puts his position here, the other puts his position there, and then you negotiate. so there is a bespoke deal to be found? negotiate. so there is a bespoke dealto be found? i have every negotiate. so there is a bespoke deal to be found? i have every faith in this government and the eu, which yasmin so adores. i do, i do. i have every sense that they will see there isa every sense that they will see there is a beneficial deal to be hard. beneficial, beneficial... the way we have behaved until very recently, andi have behaved until very recently, and i have to give credit to theresa may, and she has spoken language which is conciliatory, but these mad brexiters will not let that happen. every time... the florence speech was a good speech. it was, i agree.
goodness me! but look what happened next, all these extremists brexiters, there is no deal good enough. she is in charge, i have every confidence... look at boris! we have to move on from brexit, but before we do, we have members of the cabinet meeting tomorrow, tuesday is a full cabinet meeting, yasmin, what do you think they will set out as their vision for this next phase of their vision for this next phase of the negotiations? i don't know, because i think the government itself is so divided. there are so many people in that cabinet to have a completely different vision from the way theresa may has been talking. i don't know. i think they could get their own house in order, we might begin to understand. they are moving towards it, because philip hammond, who was always keen on the transition agreement, which is going to happen, he is moving more and more to the idea of a bus
broke deal, and if you have got philip hammond and david davis and borisjohnson, those three in particular on the same side, that is excellent news, and it seems as though they are coalescing around that there. boris is not, he is taking off again, as ever. we have had a good go at coalescing on brexit, but let's move on to the financial times, we are going to start with ikea, and other eu story ina way, start with ikea, and other eu story in a way, but more specific, to do with a crackdown on corporate tax avoidance, they are in the firing line. which is extraordinary, like all these other internet giants and so all these other internet giants and so on, they have got their very clever ways of what is not a strictly illegal tax avoidance, and iam strictly illegal tax avoidance, and i am pleased that the eu is coming down on these things that have been going on for such a long time. one of the reasons, i think, so many
people across europe and the west are so people across europe and the west are so troubled at the moment is that they don't feel the world is fair, and something has got to be done, and! fair, and something has got to be done, and i am glad they are doing something about it. will i go to idea? i have a quandary! we are going to whizz on, there is a story in the ft i want you to talk about, millennials and the deep economy, young people, particularly self—employed people, people with severaljobs, the self—employed people, people with several jobs, the zoo self—employed people, people with severaljobs, the zoo of pensions and whether we are saving enough.|j suspect we are not, and i take the view that anyone who is self—employed will not be included in auto enrolment. this is new auto enrolment for younger people. and also, they're going to put up the levels at which people contribute. sol levels at which people contribute. so i take the point, but the ft, i must make the point that this is a step in the right direction towards people saving more for their old e, people saving more for their old
age, which will needs to happen, as we have got an ageing population, the ever more burdensome on taxpayers, the generation of taxpayers, the generation of taxpayers coming up. startling fa cts , taxpayers coming up. startling facts, around 38% of the working age population, the government, under saving for their retirement. but it is not just saving for their retirement. but it is notjust that saving for their retirement. but it is not just that they'll self—employed, the gig economy, the money they earn is so low, most of them, so saving is not an option, especially if you are living in cities like london. the cost of living is so high. the daily telegraph, yasmin, let's start with this story, this picture of rebecca dykes on the front of several of the papers, this apparent murder in beirut, very upsetting story. papers, this apparent murder in beirut, very upsetting storym papers, this apparent murder in beirut, very upsetting story. it is, just before christmas, she was just about to come home for christmas, and she is on the front page of virtually every paper, quite rightly, i think. virtually every paper, quite rightly, ithink. but
virtually every paper, quite rightly, i think. but yes, virtually every paper, quite rightly, ithink. but yes, we virtually every paper, quite rightly, i think. but yes, we don't know more than that, but apparently so know more than that, but apparently so far it seems to indicate murder — and other stuff, which ijust feel so and other stuff, which ijust feel so bad for the family. apparently strangled and found on the motorway, and she worked for the department for international development out of the embassy, tragic, what can you say? we have no idea who has done it, who knows? very much the beginning of that reporting on that, isn't it? and yasmin, to end, we will look at the telegraph's lead story, saudis must stop starving yemen. this is interesting, that the daily telegraph is
