much a story of his makes it very much a story of his generation that somebody would be involved in something as terrible as this and then goes on to social media and then sent on social media as he did and to some extent, that is why he is in this position, with the child she was convicted on, he was cleared of manslaughter but convicted of this rather archaic charge of wanton and furious driving, dating back to the 19th century. he can still get two years for that and they are sentencing him in one month in the last person convicted of that offence was jailed for seven months so it is very serious and he seems to have exacerbated that by his reaction. the judge said he has not one iota of remorse from you at any stage. it is notjust a of remorse from you at any stage. it is not just a terrible of remorse from you at any stage. it is notjust a terrible incident but also the reaction to this. we are to some extent a cycling nation, authorities around the country are
trying to adapt the roads to persuade us to cycle more and that isa persuade us to cycle more and that is a good thing, i cycled myself but you cannot go onto the road with an illegal vehicle, whether it is a car or bike. it is illegalto have one of these, i think they are fixies? they are illegal? but you see them everywhere. they should not be on the road. part of his argument was the road. part of his argument was the accident could not have been avoided, even if i had brakes as with the normal bike. we will never know. it does not matter, if you drive an illegal vehicle... know. it does not matter, if you drive an illegal vehicle. . i know. it does not matter, if you drive an illegal vehicle. .. i have been told there are fixies with brakes, which means they are not fixies? confused 7 brakes, which means they are not fixies? confused? you are! the daily telegraph. migration figures, far lower than that, a review into official data as the exit checks by
the vast majority of foreign stu d e nts the vast majority of foreign students go home. we did not know this before? this is a new system of checks that have come in, a fairly small scale passenger survey at airports that shows that some of the assumptions built into the current modelling of net migration figures which presume that many non—eu international students overstay their visa are in fact wrong. most of the students are going home at the end of the university term and this passenger data suggests this. fascinating findings and migration a political issue, theresa may says she was to get a dime from the current rate of 284,000 inward migrants down to tens of thousands and even if it is a bit lower, she will not get anywhere near that target. how much do these figures alter what everyone perceives as being the 6—figure numberfour alter what everyone perceives as being the 6—figure number four net migration in the country? doesn't
bring it down significantly?m migration in the country? doesn't bring it down significantly? it is a very small survey here so it is only an indication that it does tell us that they could have headlined this another way, ways in which you were misled over brexit. so says the associate editor of the guardian! we know what we're told about, taking back control from the european court ofjustice, not quite as advertised. we we re ofjustice, not quite as advertised. we were told the brexit thing was predicated on large—scale immigration and students reported that, that does not seem to be as advertised. the longer this goes on, the more that case seems to be unravelling and the government will have to answer for some of the assumptions that they left us with. rooney —— assumptions that they left us with. rooney -- is a point we're having a debate about what brexit should or will mean. we are having that after
the vote on whether or not we should leave ? the vote on whether or not we should leave? we should have had this debate in the middle of the voting? is that not part of the problem? the campaign was about the headline topics, taking back control, arguments about sovereignty and immigration seeming to win through. of course, the low—level, nitty—gritty, the weeds of the system which can combat these topics and give people what they were promised in the field, is something that perhaps we might have thought whitehall might have planned more for but that is not the case and we are where we are and the time is ticking. we were talking about big ben but of course the real clock thatis ben but of course the real clock that is ticking is on the brexit negotiations, which have to be completed by march 2019. in negotiations, which have to be completed by march 20 19. in the telegraph, it says one of the repercussions is a government might abandon or water down restrictions oi'i abandon or water down restrictions on student visas. how long do they
spend talking on the fact they needed to do that? and they may not have to do that at all? many people might be thinking we were wrong. others might feel that this is the way forward? i feel i must add that... and continuing the theme that... and continuing the theme that the euro claims an eight year high against the pound because the euro economies are doing very well? converter hours. it is 1.8 and people say that by the time of brexit who could be parity because compared to the performance of our owi'i economy, compared to the performance of our own economy, the euro compared to the performance of our owi'i economy, the euro zone seems compared to the performance of our own economy, the euro zone seems to be going pretty well and we have been struggling, we have been down 996 been struggling, we have been down 9% since april. for people who listen... we did have a very minor total eclipse! the whole screen went
black! we are back! and we are good. that was not an indication of the economy! if we can agree on the interpretation of what the fall in the pound means, george osborne said the pound means, george osborne said the uk's systems, it is going to cost you more abroad and in the g7, we re cost you more abroad and in the g7, were one of the weakest now. on the other side, manufacturing is up. easier to export if the pound is weak. absolutely. it is difficult for anyone to really win the argument on this. it is a many sided coin. if you are trying to buy things in spain or france and dining out and you are being asked for more
money than you thought you might, this is not a good development. money than you thought you might, this is not a good developmentm you can afford to go on holiday in the first place! the financial times, the home office admits losing —— threatening to deport thousands of foreign nationals by mistake. the decision was made under your status, it said, and you have to go home. com pletely it said, and you have to go home. completely sent by mistake, which has caused a huge worry for these individuals, it came to light after a finnish academic post of this letter on social media and as yvette cooper pointed out, if the home office is making these kind of m ista kes office is making these kind of mistakes with just 100 eu office is making these kind of mistakes withjust100 eu citizens, doesn't have the capacity and capability to do with processing the status of all 3 million eu citizens in the uk presently when it comes to brexit? i think i know hugh's
answer! it is a scandal, this is a political story but around the country there are eu nationals who are unsure of their status, really worried, people travelling around the country to register and get the information they need, just to reassure themselves that they are going to be able to continue their lives as they have done. it was a mistake and they will rectify it? lives as they have done. it was a mistake and they will rectify mm is symptomatic of the kind of treatment feel they are getting. but only does it seem that the policy is chaotic but the application of the policy seems to be chaotic as well. 0n the end of that, there are people who are unsure whether or not their family will be able to continue as they have done, their careers can continue. it is absolutely scandalous. this should be a huge story because this is a human story.
millions of britons go without a ten minute walk every month. we are a nation of couch potatoes. completely extraordinary and i say this as somebody who was not the most active but 45% of 46—year—olds do not managejust one but 45% of 46—year—olds do not manage just one ten minute walk every month. fascinating. we have the stories every year showing how oui’ the stories every year showing how our health and kennedy levels are and public health england by giving in the reality and plans to overhaul the current advice, it is not realistic. and telling people to aim for half of the recommended level of activity. something is better than nothing. very quickly... someone who i’u ns nothing. very quickly... someone who runs a lot but not for england any more. wayne rooney is retiring after scoring 53 goals in 119 games.
