line from let's talk about the report. this line from robert let's talk about the report. this line from robert mueller, let's talk about the report. this line from robert mueller, if let's talk about the report. this line from robert mueller, if we let's talk about the report. this line from robert mueller, if we knew that the president didn't perform obstruction of justice, that the president didn't perform obstruction ofjustice, we would say it. but interestingly is, president trump said it is game over, there is no collusion. that's the end of everything. if you look at the report, it says that he himself was terrified when investigation was launched by robert mueller. he thought, this is terrible, it's the end of my presidency. the last line isa end of my presidency. the last line is a profanity. it shows that he himself feared what might happen and it seems as if the democrats are going to pick up on some of those aspects that have been found in the robert mueller reporter and that
chair of the justice committee says the report was probably written with the report was probably written with the intent of providing a roadmap which means the way they are interpreting it means that this has given us enough grounds to proceed with some form of investigation, either impeachment or some of the system to go against the president. how likely do you think impeachment might be? we've talked about it.” don't think it will be impeachment. not least because nancy pelosi, in europe this week, says impeachment should be off the table. it could well be that this is brought back on the table but she is the leader of the table but she is the leader of the house of representatives, the speaker of the house of representatives, to what she says has carried weight. i'm not so sure it will be impeachment but this will bea it will be impeachment but this will be a good effect as we go into the 2020 election. it certainly is not over and the pressure is definitely rising on donald trump. let's talk
about ramping up the pressure. this story in the straits times reporting the north korea is testing a new type of tactical guided weapon. what more do we know? the interesting thing about this is that is the first test, it was supervised by the leader of north korea it makes it that much more important because it seems as if he has decided that the way to go is by testing nuclear weapons and it comes after the debris talks between president trump in the leader of north korea. in spite of president trump saying, oh, yes, he's got the measure of him, they are going to do well, and some kind of deal with come through.
they are going to do well, and some kind of deal with come throughm doesn't help to have your secretary of state calling the leader of north korea a tyrant. this seems to be a real ramping up in terms of obligation. tensions are arising once again. mike pompeo, the secretary of state, saying they needed somebody much more mature. in other words, the tensions are rising again and this is the complete opposite of the two summits we have seen, to try to make north korea, to denuclearise north korea.” seen, to try to make north korea, to denuclearise north korea. i don't think that's going to happen, not in the near future. let's think that's going to happen, not in the nearfuture. let's talk think that's going to happen, not in the near future. let's talk about the near future. let's talk about the climate change protesters where you stand in all of this? really divided opinion, it's brought london toa divided opinion, it's brought london to a standstill. a lot of people are
saying the peaceful protests, 500 people shouldn't have been arrested asa people shouldn't have been arrested as a result of these. climate change isa as a result of these. climate change is a very important topic. one of the key speakers of the imf was richard attenborough talking about climate change. even the ministers of finance of the world were gathered, as they gathered, this was a hot topic so there is no way of getting away from climate issues in the protests we are seeing this week in london however, of course, there is the other side to this which is that these protests are leading to falls in business receipts because nobody is coming into london and those businesses might be affected so there is the probability of the protests going to far, causing damage to the economy in some ways. today the authorities will try and block heathrow airport, one of the
busiest airports in the world, that will have a tremendous effect. while i fully will have a tremendous effect. while ifully support will have a tremendous effect. while i fully support the protesters, it's trying to get that balance and i'm not sure we have that balance. we need to find a way out. balancing the costs of climate change with the disruption it is caused and the lack of redress for those businesses. i'm sure the debate will continue. there is nothing quite so galling as the superrich looking for a tax break respectively for their mates. what sort of world are we living in? when it was announced, that one of france's richest men, francois pinault, pledged 100 million euros for the repair of notre dame, the
cathedral that went up in flames on monday and i was in monday in washington watching the pictures, when the announcement came through, there have been many others, the first thing that occurred to me was, will that be tax—deductible? first thing that occurred to me was, will that be tax-deductible? by the end of the meeting —— week, we have one of his close confidence saying it should be 90% tax—deductible. which means the burden for the rebuild falls on the taxpayers. i deem ——i rebuild falls on the taxpayers. i deem —— i don't think that was quite the idea. although president macron said the state would help rebuild. perhaps i was just being silly. who knew the french had such deep pockets? 650 million euros in private donations. this story we like. dog owners, four times more
likely to be fit and people without dogs. it does beg the question, with a more active people are taking on the responsibility of the dog or whether having a dog means you have to get out and walk it. you just have to go and walk it. i don't have a dog but the times i've been dog sitting, the ship pressure of making sure that you take the dog out for a walk means that you're forced to do that exercise. i think that's probably right, given i've got two dogs and a exactly what the pressure is like. thank you for all your tweets. sarah says my alfie makes me do 13,000 steps a day, so that is above what you are supposed to do. sid parkins saying twice a day. very similar dog to alfie there. look at this, 64. he's got the dog attached
toa this, 64. he's got the dog attached to a harness, attached to his bike. i applaud the effort and i think that looks great so well done, dave. you for all your pictures. i don't know where you are, lisa. please do keep those pictures coming in. i'm really enjoying them. thanks very much for coming in, enjoy the easter break. so much more to come on bbc news.
hello there. for all four nations of the uk, thursday was the warmest day of 2019 — so far, that is. 23.3 was the top temperature, that was recorded in west sussex but over the easter weekend, those temperatures are set to climb a little further. widely into the 20s but towards the south—east corner on saturday, 25, possibly even 26 degrees and with that, high pressure keeping things predominantly dry and holding these weather fronts at bay in the atlantic for the most part, as i will show you in a moment but for good friday, we don't have to worry about those weather fronts. in fact, after any early fog has cleared, most of us are looking at a blue sky day with lots of sunshine. we may see patches of cloud drifting into northern ireland and western scotland but as far as the temperatures go, widely up into the high teens or low 20s celsius, 22 in glasgow, for example. somewhere further south, we could get up to 24 degrees.
friday night will be fine for most of us. we may see one or two fog patches developing they'll be quite isolated but if they do form where you are, the fog could be quite dense. also some cloud you will notice, creeping into the far west of northern ireland in north—west scotland associated with one of those weather fronts i showed you. the fronts trying to make inroads on saturday, the odd spot of rain in northern ireland, the far north—west of scotland, certainly more cloud here. come further south and east, predominantly sunny. we may see fog patches lapping onto north sea coastal areas but in the sunshine on saturday, this is likely to be the warmest day of the week and 20—24 degrees, maybe 25, 26 in the south—east corner. contrast that with the so—called holiday hotspots of southern spain. here, a wet weekend to come, persistent heavy rain which could bring flooding and even further east to the mediterranean where it is drier, northerly breeze in cool weather, 17 degrees in athens, much cooler than for many of us at home and the second half of the weekend, that area of high pressure mostly holds on. these weather fronts will always be there to the north—west,
wriggling around and threatening to move in, some uncertainty about the extent to which these fronts will make progress, always the chance of some cloud into northern ireland, north—west scotland, may some rain in the far north—west but away from these areas, again, a lot of sunshine on easter sunday. plus you again, those temperatures well up into the 20s. plus you again, those temperatures well up into the 20s. and for easter monday, it is more of the same. more spells of sunshine, more warmth, but always the chance of some of that cloud and maybe a bit of rain into the far north—west.
