turning their attention to no 10's new furry four—legged inhabitant, dilyn. mrjohnson‘s girlfriend carrie symonds brought home the 15—week—old rescue puppy who was abandoned for having a misaligned jaw. on to business news — in the telegraph which looks at how trade war tariffs and no—deal brexit fears have prompted warnings that global manufacturing is heading for recession. also in the mail, a new cholesterol injection given twice a year could become an alternative to statins for millions. instead of a daily pill, patients would now only need an injection every 6 months. and finally in the sun, facebook may change its "likes" feature amid fears it inspires an online popularity contest. the button itself will not be removed however the number of likes other people's post's receive will be kept secret. so let's begin. with me is dr stephanie hare who's an independent analyst.
johnson's ultimatum, it says, back him face a snap election. it is a super quiet week here in the uk. we are wondering if we are going to have an early election, we're wondering if the labour is going to thwart mrjohnson‘s bid to have an early election in order to stop and no—deal brexit from going through. the question is, do you trust mr johnson? do you trust him not to move the election date from october which is what it would likely be if he loses the vote or would he exercise his rights to hold it after october 31? in other words, after this country has exited with no deal. guardian talks about it being a choreographed sequence of events that took place in downing street on monday. the cabinet meeting and while they were meeting, the rumours we re while they were meeting, the rumours were swirling that he would come outside of number ten, stand outside
the podium and announce a general election happening. of course, it wasn't that announcement. it was a threat and a warning. that's right that we are living in extraordinary times here. we have seen the prime minister pro— rogue parliament and deselect any mp that would vote on —— vote against him today and then potentially we could see him take this country out of the european union without a deal which would have all very sorts of interesting things. corbin is saying bring it on. he ignores warnings and insists his party is ready for an election. but also, the two papers and many others discuss what we learned from labour and rebel tories about what they actually don't want and what they actually don't want and what they will propose today in this bill
that will be discussed. the fact that will be discussed. the fact that they want an extension of article 50 into january of next year if there is not a deal that they can carefully consider parliament prior to that. and which depends on the goodwill of the other 27 eu member states that may not grant an extension unless there is extenuating circumstances. they might grantan extenuating circumstances. they might grant an extension if they think they will hold a general election but if it is just going to be more of the same, it will be very difficult to see why european leaders would agree to that. the times picking up on the former leader tony blair starkly warning in a speech of his real concern and worries about everything, about a general election, about a no—deal brexit. and basically warning those do not go ahead with a general election and yet jeremy do not go ahead with a general election and yetjeremy corbyn is saying he is ready, "bring it on". a lot of calculations are at play from
labour here. it is entirely possible thatjeremy corbyn is ready but not necessarily before october 31. his party really has to make accounts —— calculation. what is more important here? trying to win a general election or stopping a no—deal brexit. this article on the side of the times, willow gamble payoff? it is 50-50 the times, willow gamble payoff? it is 50—50 and quite unclear what may happen if there is going to be a snap election before october the 14th many are arguing that boris could win. they desperately need that. we remember when theresa may announced a snap general election and at the time it looked like the conservatives were in a pretty good position. it could go anyway. who knows what would happen. introducing
dilyn. you are not happy about this story. when i see this story i think about all the other things we could be talking about like the rise of poverty in this country people that need food banks to get food or the fa ct we need food banks to get food or the fact we could have medicine stories so fact we could have medicine stories soi fact we could have medicine stories so i think it medicine shortages. i think this is taking off —— taking oui’ think this is taking off —— taking our minds of the important things. lot of people are talking about larry the cat but i'm not feeling the vibe from stephanie so we won't linger anymore. the vibe from stephanie so we won't lingeranymore. factories the vibe from stephanie so we won't linger anymore. factories feel the pain as trade war intensifies. this is the manufacturing day that came
out for the uk. this is uk data but it is true for many countries around the world. —— data. it is true for many countries around the world. -- data. the united states is in a trade war with china and this seems like it is a bilateral dispute was not these other two superpowers. when the two superpowers are fighting, everyone else is going to suffer. we are very focused on brexit here in the uk and thatis focused on brexit here in the uk and that is certainly a global risk factor but the big one imf is talking about is a global ‘s trade slowdown. but the us is notjust in a trade dispute with china but everyone, the eu. every trade partner around the world. at the moment the attention is on china but it will move in good time. indeed. the us is talking about doing some sort of partial trade deal with japan but this is nothing like what it would have enjoyed if it had been pa rt it would have enjoyed if it had been part of the trans—pacific partnership which president trump's present —— predecessor obama had
negotiated and then trump pulled out of immediately after taking office. we're looking a difficult economy to go into, something we should all bearin go into, something we should all bear in mind. the jab that could replace statins and patients would only need an injection every six months. a really powerful cholesterol jab. months. a really powerful cholesteroljab. progress months. a really powerful cholesterol jab. progress or, months. a really powerful cholesteroljab. progress or, i don't know, what do you think?” think it sounds really fantastic because it is a burden on people having to take a pill every day when they could just have an injection twice a year. it appears to be the same sort of efficiency in terms of the restriction for the pills cost about £20 a year. we would want to see how much that would, what burden it would place on the nhs or is it like for like replacement? let's move on to facebook. it may hide its
likes feature. mark zuckerberg and facebook seemingly wanting to make facebook seemingly wanting to make facebook better for us and not impact our mental health. is this what you think they are doing here? iam kind what you think they are doing here? i am kind of a cynic here. we are talking about facebook‘s like button and their data protection track record and what they are doing with children's data record and what they are doing with child ren's data and record and what they are doing with children's data and how the regulators around the world holding this company to account. great that they are hiding the like button, this changes nothing. how are you impacted on social media does make by social media? some viewers are saying that it impacts their social media and what do you say?” saying that it impacts their social media and what do you say? i use certain social media for work purposes only but i don't use things like facebook or instagram. are you concerned about what they are doing with your information more than your
mental health? yes, yes. i think there track record indicates that. thank you for being on the briefing and thank you for that — —— your comments on this final story. many people have been in touch about it. shawna says mental health is a possible second symptom and the issueis possible second symptom and the issue is that social media is just another platform for bullies to access and prey on people. all the famous. thank you for your comments. have a really good day and i will see you soon.
