johnson a grip on us that he could open up a space for eight nigel faraj style party. we know that protecting borders can be a hugely influential topic when voters go to the polls. the big part of why some people voted to leave the european union. borisjohnson is a great beneficiary of that decision. but this suggestion here that he might not be able to maintain his majority, a new right wing party will come up, i think this shows thatis will come up, i think this shows that is very serious issue in its own right one where priti patel nearly lost herjob as home secretary earlier this year. it's also getting a lot of conservatives very angry. i think in the wake of the tory sleeves, the owen patterson, this causes serious problems close to home for the prime minister. i’d problems close to home for the prime minister. �* ~' ., problems close to home for the prime minister. �* ~ ., ., , ., minister. i'd like to have your thou~hts minister. i'd like to have your thoughts on _ minister. i'd like to have your thoughts on this _ minister. i'd like to have your thoughts on this story. - minister. i'd like to have your thoughts on this story. this l minister. i'd like to have your| thoughts on this story. this is minister. i'd like to have your l thoughts on this story. this is a set sunday telegraph as it were also going to include the sunday express because they say that boris is still a winner, he still has that support.

actually— election for the borisjohnson has actually pointed apparently a new nrinister— actually pointed apparently a new minister steve barkley to specifically focus on controlling immigration, to work with priti patel— immigration, to work with priti patel and — immigration, to work with priti patel and other departments across government to find ways of making it less attractive for people to come here, _ less attractive for people to come here, iess — less attractive for people to come here, less easy for them to enter and then— here, less easy for them to enter and then say here, which has been an enormous _ and then say here, which has been an enormous problem. because once people _ enormous problem. because once people have entered illegally they are even _ people have entered illegally they are even being put up in hotels, threatening them with jail isn't much — threatening them with jail isn't much of— threatening them with jail isn't much of a _ threatening them with jail isn't much of a threat if they feel they can get— much of a threat if they feel they can get out soon and find somewhere to work— can get out soon and find somewhere to work under the radar. gk. can get out soon and find somewhere to work under the radar.— to work under the radar. 0k. were auoin to to work under the radar. 0k. were going to move _ to work under the radar. 0k. were going to move on _ to work under the radar. 0k. were going to move on to _ to work under the radar. 0k. were going to move on to the _ to work under the radar. 0k. were going to move on to the next - to work under the radar. 0k. were going to move on to the next frontj going to move on to the next front page. this is the observer. benjamin, the pm has been told, he's facing potentially if papers are true rebellion after rebellion. this time it's all to do with plans for care charges. time it's all to do with plans for care charges—
11:38 pm
time it's all to do with plans for care charges. exactly. it looks like a lot of these _ care charges. exactly. it looks like a lot of these redwall _ care charges. exactly. it looks like a lot of these redwall tory - care charges. exactly. it looks like a lot of these redwall tory mps, l a lot of these redwall tory mps, people that took a different type of tory a working—class vote that you still work to that vote labour. this is another issue getting them angry. the government has said you will only have to pay up to £86,000 of social care cause. that's one of their big reforms alongside that big national insurance rise. there is anger about what this will mean for different parts of the country. because if you live in london where many houses are houses that aren't particularly cash wealthy but in the northeast scotland and the northeast a lot of those houses are worth less. take for example 86000 pounds is about i7% of someone's wealth in london but the average person in the northeast is more than 57%. some of those people that won tory seats in the northeast since they've never
11:39 pm
been forbidden labour, not since the second world war in many cases they are saying this is completely unfair. know what a former minister has said is that it shouldn't be this flat £86,000 figure. it should be a percentage of a person as well. so you don't have a situation with a home in london that are shot up in price can keep most of their asset and pass that on compared to someone in the northwest and east where they simply don't have that and might end “p simply don't have that and might end up still having to sell their home. one of the lines here is that the tory web server been understood to have been told by several signatories that they are considering voting against the plans or abstaining. considering voting against the plans orabstaining. how damaging considering voting against the plans or abstaining. how damaging would that be for the prime minister? i that be for the prime minister? i think it would be another blow to his credibility within the parliamentary party. i suspect if he believes _ parliamentary party. i suspect if he believes that they will be a big rebellion he may decide not to put this to _ rebellion he may decide not to put this to a _ rebellion he may decide not to put this to a vote just yet. and either
11:40 pm
try and _ this to a vote just yet. and either try and change the plans which i certainly— try and change the plans which i certainly hope he will do. 0r spend more _ certainly hope he will do. 0r spend more time — certainly hope he will do. 0r spend more time trying to win people around — more time trying to win people around. he the plans as a stand, it's not— around. he the plans as a stand, it's notjust — around. he the plans as a stand, it's notjust £86,000 that people need _ it's notjust £86,000 that people need to— it's notjust £86,000 that people need to spend on care anyway because that only— need to spend on care anyway because that only includes some of the costs — that only includes some of the costs if— that only includes some of the costs. if you're in a care home you will still— costs. if you're in a care home you will still on — costs. if you're in a care home you will still on top of the amounts that go— will still on top of the amounts that go towards the 86,000 have to pay for— that go towards the 86,000 have to pay for your board and lodging which is another— pay for your board and lodging which is another few thousand. most people will spend _ is another few thousand. most people will spend well over a possibly up to £200,000 be for they get any help or probably qualify for full help from _ or probably qualify for full help from the — or probably qualify for full help from the government. that will eat up from the government. that will eat up the _ from the government. that will eat up the vast — from the government. that will eat up the vast majority if not all of some _ up the vast majority if not all of some of— up the vast majority if not all of some of the redwall tory constituents assets. that is not going _ constituents assets. that is not going to — constituents assets. that is not going to play well in the country and i_ going to play well in the country and i suspect the government which

11:42 pm
fascist state, that it's a dictatorship, the personalfreedom has been removed. i think this will pose a very serious problem. what the punishment will be is a fine so it's not clear whether that will even work. also there's an ethical question, we know that these vaccines definitely work but if the state requires someone to get it and then they were to get very sick or to die in one of those tiny fractional cases where it goes wrong what position would that put the government and? etiquettes quite a remarkable decision. i think a lot more of these protests can go on. because two years and even though people are concerned i think there is a rising disquiet about this. i live in west minister and when they walked out had a couple of thousand protesters against our laws. for what it's worth, i think everyone should definitely get the covid vaccine but i think these kind of reactions to restrictions or probably become more common. i probably become more common. i wonder if you could quickly give us your reaction to the story. i do

if you look at the 150,000 just that there have been the death rate among some minorities is two to four higher than the white population. there are many reasons for that. some can be health conditions, susceptible to, living arrangement such as many generations in the same houses, poverty and also doing to his gonna look into it which is the idea that these foxy metre machines that read a persons oxygen are not nearly as accurate for a black person as for a white person. the reason is after the pandemic they were predicting whether some one got oxygen machines are not. this is a pretty important investigation. front page of the sunday sign hugo, i'm not sure what to say. how's your night life? i'm not sure what to say. how's your niuht life? ~ �* ., ., , night life? well, i can't wait to be out and about _ night life? well, i can't wait to be out and about properly. _ night life? well, i can't wait to be out and about properly. the - night life? well, i can't wait to be out and about properly. the hobo| night life? well, i can't wait to be l out and about properly. the hobo is meant _ out and about properly. the hobo is meant to _ out and about properly. the hobo is meant to he — out and about properly. the hobo is meant to be people who feel they can't _ meant to be people who feel they can't be _ meant to be people who feel they can't be bothered any more with the hassle _ can't be bothered any more with the hassle of— can't be bothered any more with the hassle of going out. obviously if
