after writing about the important of caring for conservation, saying he's not bothered if people call him a hippy. with me is eileen burbidge, a partner at passion capital, a technology venture fund based in london. there are so many different stories to tell about borisjohnson, about the conservative party, their conference is under way in manchester. this looks at the fact that while the conservatives are in manchester in parliament, today they may all come together and come up with a plan to go ahead with a vote of no—confidence. with a plan to go ahead with a vote of no-confidence. if the opposition leaders can come together to agree to do that and agree who they would wa nt to to do that and agree who they would want to lead, that is the point. all the opposition leaders are saying, listen, we need to actually take an ideal brexit off the table, we need to ta ke ideal brexit off the table, we need to take boris johnson ideal brexit off the table, we need to take borisjohnson out from his
leadership position because he has said he is willing to consider that as part of his negotiations, but i think they can't decide who they would rather have leading the government. jeremy corbyn, nicola sturgeon saying she is open—minded but not a fan, and that is the part they really need to talk about. none of this would be happening if the supreme court ruled that actually the government's position to promote parliament was lawful. they wouldn't be there, they wouldn't be in westminster right now. they got really cold back to sit in parliament, it means i can have these conversations, can have formal debates, you can have conversations about it. the question is whether or not it is too late. what do you make of all of this since i last saw you? every time i see you, it is a month in between or two weeks. so much happens. and yet nothing happens. that is the thing for business leaders. a lot going on in politics but not much in terms of where we're
headed as a country. six weeks ago i saidi headed as a country. six weeks ago i said i was getting brexit fatigue because it looked nothing was happening. now things are coming to a head, it does seem as if boris johnson wants to leave the european union with or without a deal by october 31 so the clock is ticking. this is the function that is bringing this to a head. i suspect he will get a deal through because he will get a deal through because he is driving everyone to insanity with this idea of an ideal brexit which will make people more pliable to compromise around the terms of a deal. it is interesting, i was to compromise around the terms of a deal. it is interesting, iwas at to compromise around the terms of a deal. it is interesting, i was at a conference recently and there was a room of fund managers around the world and they put the question out there, do you think borisjohnson will still be in hisjob in six months time? most of them believed he wouldn't. he would not be. that does seem to be the conventional wisdom, because even if it does make sure that we exit on october 31, he won't be able to control —— maintain his control as prime minister. today
sajid javid will be presenting his speech with huge infrastructure spend, a lot of that will be for roads, buses, technology, hospitals. what do you think about that idea? many are saying, is this the time to be spending so much? government confirming £25 billion followed up grades, but the full bill when you come police, healthcare, it is a lot of money. a lot of things that would be questioned over the weekend were all of these commitments and conversations for example about the new hospitals. is it 60 or 30 new hospitals orjust new hospitals. is it 60 or 30 new hospitals or just six? new hospitals. is it 60 or 30 new hospitals orjust six? where is the money going to come from? how are taxpayers going to fund this or how will the government funded? what are you taking away in order to do this? the conservative party is recognising the need to put an end to austerity, it has to invest in the country. let's look at austria.
interesting, a very young man, 33 yea rs interesting, a very young man, 33 years old, he is well known within the political scene in austria. the conservative people's party coming up conservative people's party coming up with more than 38% of the vote up from 431% last time around. it will be interesting to see how they move forward — let up from 31%. it is becoming a familiar tale. who are you teaming up with? the split between different groups and parties is becoming bigger and he has gained more support from before last time, still not enough to have the majority so he has to form a coalition. interestingly, his coalition. interestingly, his coalition partners from before, this far right party other ones are brought up this general election and the fact that he had a vote of no—confidence against him. they have said they will spend some time in opposition, signalling they don't wa nt to opposition, signalling they don't want to be part of a coalition. but it is nice to see that if you don't have the far right against —— gaining more support, it seems like
this centre is moving in austria is taking hold. let's move onto a story we talked about before, the front page of the times, we have already highlighted the health secretary is talking about children passively facing a band from school if they haven't got there. vaccinations, the most controversial is the mmr vaccination, mumps, measles and rubella, which was argued by quite a high profile doctor at the time yea rs high profile doctor at the time years ago in the uk, could cause autism. it was debunked and he was struck off the register and it has got a whole lot of problems. he is in the us now. he has been abreast of trump supporters. a lot of the motivation behind the anti—vaxxer or vaccination hesitant movement seems to be harry —— heavily correlated to religious tenancies and anti—government, anti— farmer, anti—
big business sentiment. what the world health organization and health secretary is stressing children's lives are at risk, we will be at risk of another epidemic, we are no longer measles free as we were in 2017. there are complications that can result from what people think is a rash that can be extremely harmful for children. and harmful for the rest of your life. adults who cause measles as children have a very long—term debilitating illnesses right throughout life. it is interesting. i am right throughout life. it is interesting. iam not right throughout life. it is interesting. i am not sure where i am on this, whether children should actually be banned from going to school if they haven't got their full set of vaccinations.” school if they haven't got their full set of vaccinations. i think there is a wide range, you don't wa nt to there is a wide range, you don't want to see that kind of force being used, but how you make it unlawful not to get vaccinated, whether through school attendance or other measures, the pressure needs to be on the parents to take a better view for the children's health. absolutely. mother's day, they
celebrate as we are a bbc sport as well, winning historic gold at the world championships, both mums, brilliant story. just outstanding athletes. fantastic, and they are breaking their own records as well when they win these goals. they are actually breaking records, they had the baby, less than two years old, stories like this and serena williams in tennis, makes me feel like i should be doing more after having children. you are doing enough. you should inspire lots of young people, being a mother. for women, top athletes, the physical toll. being a mum, pregnancy, giving birth. for serena williams, i want her to win birth. for serena williams, i want herto wina birth. for serena williams, i want her to win a grand slam because she hasn't won a grand slam final since she became a mum yet. but fantastic
news, wonderful. but look at the telegraph frontpage, harry right there in middle saying we must coexist with nature. it sounds like his dad. he does. he is taking a leaf out of the book. it is a really, really good policy to get behind philosophy to get behind. we need think about conservation a little more with our lives. i think his he is acknowledging he comes from a very privileged position where he can go down to africa... he can buy organic. shouldn't be flying on private jets. but can buy organic. shouldn't be flying on privatejets. but he can buy organic. shouldn't be flying on private jets. but he talks about how giving everything he has been given, he can take stock and say, listen, we need to do more. there are so many issues we want to address in the future of the world's sustainability and the like. but it is great to see him using his platform in order to send that
message. today, few people would call him a hippie because he is basically saying what so many others are saying, especially people of his age and younger care, as we know, very deeply about the planet, about climate change, but when his dad was first starting to talk about this, many, first starting to talk about this, any first starting to talk about this, many, many years ago, prince charles, most people ridiculed him. he was a laughingstock back then. charles, most people ridiculed him. he was a laughingstock back thenlj do think he is playing it as if the odds are stocked against him. that is not the case. there are some very powerful and vocal people in government who are climate changed in i is, but in general most of the population would agree with him. we need to take better care of the world. we do. thank you for your company. whatever you are up to, i hope it goes well and i will see you very soon. goodbye. hello there.
parts of wales have seen over 130mm of rain over the last seven days. no wonder, then, that we've had some problems with flooding. and after a quieter start to monday, it looks like rain will then return from the south—west. we start off with this little bump in the isobars. a transient ridge of high pressure moving its way through. this cold front bringing some showers into northern scotland and this area of low pressure will be feeding rain in from the south—west. so we start off with mist and fog patches which should tend to lift and clear and then a decent amount of sunshine, some showers feeding in across scotland and then this rain, particularly through the afternoon, piling into the south—west of england, through wales, where over high ground, we could see a further 70mm, getting on to 3 inches, rain getting into the midlands as we go through the afternoon. to the north of that, northern england and scotland, it'll be largely dry with just the odd shower but on the cool side. now, as we go through monday night, that rain pushes its way northwards and eastwards, getting
into the far south of scotland, certainly some rain into northern ireland, some showers chasing on into the south where it will be a mild night, but we start tuesday morning on a decidedly chilly note across the northern half of scotland. so our area of low pressure just churning its way eastwards as we go through tuesday. along the line of this frontal system here we'll see some heavy bursts of rain and thunder and lightning mixed in with that. that wet weather tending to pivot its way south—eastwards, leaving something brighter behind, but with the winds coming down from the north, there will be a few showers and it is going to feel really chilly, 9 there for aberdeen and stornoway. some of the showers over the highest ground in northern scotland could contain some sleet, even some snow over the mountaintops. as we get into wednesday and that area of low pressure continues to slide away eastwards, while we all get into this cold northerly wind, we could well start wednesday morning with a touch of frost. temperatures for parts of northern england, southern and central scotland, out in the countryside, could be all the way down at freezing.
but it is looking like a beautiful day for the most part. lots of crisp sunshine and blue sky overhead. some showers running down these north sea coasts on a brisk wind. lighter winds further west, but daytime temperatures of just 11—14 degrees. then as we head towards the end of the week, there is a lot of uncertainty, it does look like temperatures will start to climb again, but there could be some wet and windy weather. we'll keep you posted on that one. so, for the week ahead, more rain at first but temperatures climb for the end of the week, but there is the chance for some more wet and windy weather.
