ceo of strategy consultancy, camerton. and we have been asking that question, what were we doing when diana died. i was led to say, a number of papers have led with this story, but it is the quote here that stands out, and it comes from prince harry. i think the reason that it is so harry. i think the reason that it is so poignant is that, of course, he should be the last person to be saying that, in many ways. what happened with diana was extraordinaire. that week we were just discussing, a month ago, that week is one that we will all remember in a way that americans remember in a way that americans remember when jfk was murdered. remember in a way that americans remember whenjfk was murdered. we ramble where we were when we heard it. -- ramble where we were when we heard it. —— we remember where we were when we heard it. using back to alexander campbell and his diaries at the time, and how do a time it
was for all of us, as we became embroiled in the story, and it was not our story. but then to say, prince harry, that all of us lost somebody this day, it isn't true. because he and his brother did. not all of us. i got no sense of what was going on over here on the day, so was going on over here on the day, so this was very different. this is where it was extraordinary.” so this was very different. this is where it was extraordinary. i was overseas. i was living down the road, so the crowds of people that we go down to kensington palace were enormous. but if you look at some things that were set at the time, europe see how we lost our sense of proportion. the leader of the opposition of the time called for heathrow airport to be renamed after. pizza express made a peace after, and if you bought it, they

—— everybody's need to mark this 20th anniversary. — — eve rybody's need. need to mark this 20th anniversary. -- everybody's need. let's move on to theresa may. that is a surprise statement. i do know she was pushed into saying she was here for the long haul. i think this is a media confection. what else is she meant to say when she is asked? no prime minister can say yes, i am here for just as long as my cabinet and the people around the want me to be. she is never to say that. if you look at the wording that she came outwith, she has come out with careful wording. what she said is not i am here to fight for the long—term, she said the things that i want to fight for our long—term issues. that is a slightly different thing. but you know this well enough, mark. the conservative mps around this will pick up on anything and everything.
they are acutely tuned to the language, and she knows that as well. yes, she has that as well. they will listen to what she said, but also look at the headlines. and the headlines at 11:00pm different story. so you know, this will cause problems, i have no doubt. it will say, you know, you are only around as long as we want you around. they all know that in the background. but the way the story has come out, i think, will cause problems in a way thatis think, will cause problems in a way that is inevitable, because she couldn't say anything else. the same was true, of course, would again to the election. when she said repeatedly i won't have an election, i won't have an election, there was no other way she could as a question. there i skip us a cross onto climate change? —— skimmers across. this was inevitable. scientists and other campaigners coming hold, saying, the donald trump, you cannot deny this. ——
there i skip us a cross. —— across. 800 people have died, and 3a million people have been affected in bendigo. —— 3a million people. —— bangladesh. —— 24. after bendigo. —— 34 million people. —— bangladesh. —— 24. after hurricane harvey, suddenly you have the times with a leading article, calling at some of the numbers. 700,000 homes have been destroyed in bangladesh during this monsoon. 1000 people have died. yes, i think you're right, sally, it is not surprising that people are now starting to make this story, especially in that donald trump has been a long—term climate deniers. he has road back a little bit about it being a chinese conspiracy, but he is not exactly your obvious climate activist. being
an entrepreneurand your obvious climate activist. being an entrepreneur and somebody the stunts and companies in your time, give us your take on this story. this is the new boss of earl. the full pleasure they have here about the boss, said that he —— the full pay to hear —— the full page they have here about the new boss of uber, but of course, they have been subsidising fares rise as they started, with shareholder funds, subsidising fares rise as they started, with shareholderfunds, in order to gain market share. all that is absolutely fine, but it means that the business model itself, other than for the great convenience of it, is not necessarily proven, given that they have rendered through battles to fight. that is potentially pollinate them. how
quickly does it had to make a profit? if we look at amazon, for example. many other start—ups has spent years not making profit, just growing, and growing. yes, what those don't have art the same regulatory issues that uber has. it is fighting on all fronts. in london, it is fighting for licensing in london. it has not yet completely got over the hurdle of being able to exist without any concerns. your point is well made, you don't have to make a profit straightaway, but it is right at the front of the list of things you must deal with. in five seconds, can he change it? of course he can. you think you will? a 93v, course he can. you think you will? a gay, thank you mark. so that you here. thank you to you to for your company. hello. moving to the last day of august, but in some places
