tv Electioncast BBC News November 12, 2019 8:30pm-9:00pm GMT
as we head into thursday. hello, i'm ros atkins, this is outside source. welcome to today's election cast. hong kong's battle ground shifts it is adam here in election cast hq. to university campuses — and chris mason here as well. and we arejoined in our around 70 fires are burning new broadcasting house by an a—list news person. across new south wales — is that where i say me? about half are out of control rebekah va rdy. yes, i am on the ground floor newsroom camera, in land that's hard to reach it's the first time i've ever been here, so it's actually
a new experience all around. we saw the peak winds up to and above 80 clumber per hour, we of the yes, that's where me and chris do temperatures up into the high 30s a lot of our broadcasting from. and we saw the humidity down as low it's quite a self—conscious thing that, if you start as 5% across so much of the speaking quite loudly, you're putting people find geographic area of new south wales you're putting people off affected. hillary clinton tells behind you are to diligently the bbc she is shocked compile long—running orders the british government has not yet for news programmes. published a report on alleged but it is very good for knowing russian interference in uk politics. what the weather is going to be i'm dumbfounded that this government won't released a report because you're next to the weather people. that's over there, isn't it. i can't look, you see if i do that... so emily, do you know why we have lured you here today? no, go on tell me. that is because former secretary of state and presidential candidate, hillary clinton has been on the air waves promoting her book and we thought that you are really immersed in american politics but that stuff so if you could come and talk to us about hillary clinton and what she has been saying. wasn't that fascinating? i thought she had given us a slightly calm her side to the one i thought she had given us a slightly calmer side to the one that i remember in 2016.
she did not hold back at all from wading into uk politics, first of all. i don't know if you got that clip of her when she talks about the russian dossier and how dumbfounded she was that we haven't yet seen it. yes, we do have that clip and here's her talking about the report from the intelligence and security committee and house of commons or the old house of commons and the old committee because it doesn't exist any more and she got it slightly wrong because she said it was a government report, which it isn't, strictly speaking. although it is now in the hands of the government. i am dumbfounded that this government will not release the report of our russian influence because every person who votes in this country deserves to see that report before your election happens. that should be an absolute condition because there is no doubt, we know it in our country, we have seen it in europe, we have seen it here that russia in particular is determined to try and shape the politics of western democracies, not to our benefit, but to theirs.
there is no doubt of the role that russia played in our 2016 election in this continuing to play. there is a lot of evidence that russia played in the brexit election. i am not in your country, i do not have a say about any of that. but the fact that the current government will not release this report by your own government should raise some questions. that is a zinger of an intervention, isn't it? from a former secretary of state, right in the middle of a general election campaign here. absolutely! and someone who has nothing to lose any more. does not worry about which toes she might be treading on. she knows what she thinks and the russia interference that she felt was very present in the us election has clearly informed a lot of what she feels and speaks about and the subsequent years and i think what is funny about it is that she is convinced that russia had interfered
in america and on newsnight, a former national security adviser, we are putting the same questions to him and doing a lot of work on the dusty air itself and he said look, andl dusty air itself and he said look, and i paraphrase, there is almost no doubt that the russians did interfere last time around in the intelligence services here believe that and it is very likely that they will be interfering in the selection, but the natural place of space for them to interfere would be over the union and the problem is, they do not know which side to pick oi'i they do not know which side to pick on to who would break up the union who would be more successful from a russian perspective. arab point that you made before we heard that clip about the tone that hillary clinton adopting the conversation at a curiosity that i've noticed some politics here and in the states, i do not know what it says about our political culture and political conversation that so often politician some more human, some are
grounded when they are no longer on the mainstream political stage and i think you that the interview. we all call it the exit interview, the interview you want is the first one you did when they leave office and quite often, there is a lot of baggage and that one because they have to set their legacy, explain what they achieved, blamed whoever needs blaming to them and instead you get a relaxing of the shoulder and they start talking human again and they start talking human again and they start talking human again and they do start, i do not know if you call it wading in because it sounds unfair but definitely injecting what they really think is into the subjects that they are asked about and i think you've got absolutely a clear clarification on the russian stuff, she then talks about female mps and she does not hold back on the murder ofjoe, which she watched and this was something that ricocheted around the
world and she called it a political assassination. if you can display that bit of her talking about it. yes, we do have that clip and here's an interview that will be up tomorrow but they're letting this play this part today.|j tomorrow but they're letting this play this part today. i have had conversations with current and former members of both the house of commons and the house of lords. certainly the joe murder was a terrible hate crime, political crime, but these women tell me that they are getting death threats, they are getting all kinds of vile language thrown at them online in letters, on the street, we cannot permit that. your government should not permit that, whoever is in your government should be standing up and saying very clearly that will protect people who run, we will not allow these anti—democratic forces to threaten people, particularly women so to threaten people, particularly women so they do not stand for
office. i am just women so they do not stand for office. i amjust amazed by women so they do not stand for office. i am just amazed by the idea, are you a backbench mp in the hillary clinton disclosure to say what's going on in westminster these days? when you call it a political assassination, the land of abraham lincoln and jfk, when you look at this with absolute horror but somehow we just thought of it as the work of an insane person. but it was an absolute tragedy but we did not put it in the context of political assassination and she is. she is getting right in there and saying, thatis getting right in there and saying, that is how you've got to see these things. this was a woman whose voice was shutdown and this is from a woman who, let's be honest, does not look like she is entirely left on the political stage herself and talking to her on radio four this morning and she constantly and i have heard constantly before, she
consta ntly have heard constantly before, she constantly talks about the work that she has to do, the books that she is writing, education, and yet, she will not shut the door on standing again. what became clear was that there are candidates out there for there are candidates out there for the democrats and there wasn't one person that she is going to endorse. she might say it is very hard for the secretary of state, who has tried and failed to endorse one candidate with a possibly harming them or hurting others. but there was something a bit more and that, since they got from her voice that she hasn't quite loved the person who feels like they are in her shoes or mantle and we look at the democrats, it's quite an interesting choice that lies ahead because they are trying to work out the choice before them. do they pick the person he can best buy donald trump? 0r pick the person who can best encapsulate with the democrats as a
party wa nt encapsulate with the democrats as a party want to stand for now and they might be two different things pulling into different directions. it would be extraordinary, phenomenal if hillary clinton were to enter the 2020 presidential race at this time. if not, why notjust say no? i haven't thought of that. she is in books a at the moment and wrote this book about gutsy women and she is on stage with various events and she has not seen this as a political intervention that is doing here. book tours are terrifying things and if you feel like you have said something very flippantjust as like you have said something very flippant just as you are leaving or putting on your code, and then it becomes as massive headline that she says you had during the next morning. so they are quite delicate things because the want in a room feels very real and it is quite
seductive and then you suddenly think, oh my god, you've got to be really careful. this is still a microphone and that is still the re st of microphone and that is still the rest of the world out there. the interviewer being interviewed. 0r maybe, hillary clinton knows that she sells more books if she keeps the dream alive for her believers and followers and suggests thatm is just and followers and suggests thatm isjust a and followers and suggests thatm is just a marketing and followers and suggests thatm isjust a marketing campaign and followers and suggests thatm is just a marketing campaign and and followers and suggests thatm isjust a marketing campaign and we have for it! i think she is too savvy,, she could shut this down say i have had a girl. i did not manage it when you're in for the top job, that's it. she still sounds like somebody who is got a bone to pick with life in so many areas, whether it's the russian interference,
whether it is the trump presidency as she sees now, whether it isjames call me after the fbi intervention when they both took incredibly seriously and that has remained the intention still so call a broadly unfinished business, but there is a woman that feels like she has a lot more to offer it is still choosing the right vehicle in right direction in which he can do that. thank you for coming on and we greatly appreciated. yes. the big news story is the flooding in northern england and the prime minister and loads of ministers attending the meeting of the government the ‘s emergency committee known as cobra and afterwards, there was a quick clip with boris johnson afterwards, there was a quick clip with borisjohnson as prime minister.
been working flat out to deliver an adequate response. i know there are people that feel it isn't good enough. i know there are people who are worrying about the damage to their homes who will be worried about their insurance situation, worried about the losses that they face, all they want to say that they face, all i want to say to those people is that there are schemes to cover those losses that we do ensure that people will have protections against flood and those are certainly being activated now. more details from downing street on with those schemes actually are. quarter past seven tonight, some details from the governments and it is curious, there is still a government despite it being an election campaign and you still get their reaction. what do we find out in addition to when it armed forces being deployed to help with the
recovery effort. they also say that there will be a community recovery grant which is organised by the local government department: the £500 per eligible household to help with the immediate recovery as far as those media personnel are concerned, they come from the battalion in north yorkshire and there will be deployed tomorrow. £500 per household to go to local authorities and that is called the recovery grant and a business recovery grant and a business recovery grant and a business recovery gra nt we ca n recovery grant and a business recovery grant we can get £2500 of your business that is affected, but thatis your business that is affected, but that is for stuff that is not covered by your insurance. it's more than just covered by your insurance. it's more thanjust a covered by your insurance. it's more than just a check if your flight has been flooded. and you're asking if this stuff is different from the pastis this stuff is different from the past is why these are schemes done
in 2015 and there are loads of politics loads of factors with our reality checkers we got the picture from the scene. chances are yorkshire editor correspondent and where actually are you and your covering the floods, are you? i am off to do some broadcasting but fish lake is kind of cut off at the moment and the only way into the villages by tractors so hopefully i will try to hitch a lift with the fire service or with the farmer. but right next to the river. really massive issue for so many people in south yorkshire, collating with the general election campaign and those
of politicians are using it as a backdrop to make various promises. we had joe swenson in promising a £5 billion for flood prevention screen in orderto billion for flood prevention screen in order to speak with some pretty upset people at the moment, because this is happened to them before in 2007. lots of flood defences and they have made a difference but if you're homeless flooded again, it doesn't make much of a difference in jeremy corbyn has been in bentley and has been with people this afternoon with people that have been affected by the flooding, the people from the southjust affected by the flooding, the people from the south just want some help and we have been speaking with loads of people want to lose their homes with absolutely nothing and whether it be by local or national government, the feel absolutely let down at the moment. the hardest job in the selection is a crunch throw the numbers, tom, you've been
looking at all the stuff you've heard from the parties today but labour in the environment agency, what if you find out about what are they saying and secondly, what is it that you have been able to drill down to prove? quite a few spreadsheets and this one. strap yourself in. labour is saying that there is been a 20% cut in the environment agency and this is the public body which deals with wildlife, natural disasters including flooding. i am struggling a little bit to find these numbers so a little bit to find these numbers soi a little bit to find these numbers so i went to labour desk where exactly they got from and they are pointing towards earth, which is a journalism project followed by greenpeace we look at the data, text from 2010, but 2030 and what the data shows that injanuary 2013,
there are 13,000 staff employed by there are 13,000 staff employed by the agency by january 2018, have fallen and 10,500 and 33 and that is where you get that number. if you get the very latest figures, which you can get the september this year, then you'll find that the staff count has picked up slightly to 10,713, so that's still down the course of the january 2013 figure. and the lib dems have been talking about more money that they put into defences and there were the government. the lib dems are supporting this flood fund which would come from boris and this fund is necessary to them because leaving the eu means that we lose access to what is called the eu solidarity fund. this is a fund for eu members can fund. this is a fund for eu members ca n a ccess fund. this is a fund for eu members can access in the event of a natural
disaster such as a flood. they claim the uk received £192 million from this fund since it was created in 2002 and that includes £52 million in 2016, we look at the e figures, does add up. but there seems to be a bit of a dispute over how much the we actually received after various deductions so looking at the base of what was written, it was a statement from the minister injanuary 2017 and says the government, while they successfully received £52 million in 2016, the actual net benefit was only about 500,000 and those due to various offsets, costs and rebates. so that one is little bit more digging. the doors open, come in.
hello. have a seat in headphones, very important. appreciate her new microphone covers as well. very important. appreciate her new microphone covers as welllj very important. appreciate her new microphone covers as well. i am a reporterfor microphone covers as well. i am a reporter for the microphone covers as well. i am a reporterfor the bbc microphone covers as well. i am a reporter for the bbc trending and analyse viral posts and the content that people are seeing on social medium devoted to the election. long—term friend of the brexit cast. in his one of her new friends, sent ina in his one of her new friends, sent in a voice memo with the question she has for us. i am victoria i am 20 years old and my question is, what is the biggest difference between our political parties using twitter compared to instagram, to engaging in young voters. we are conscious in the political bumper and instead of those obsessed with tweeting, we also this thought in oui’ tweeting, we also this thought in our heads that says yes, but real
people use other stuff, facebook instagram can say that. the extent to where that is true is intriguing. and another thing we notice is that twitter is important but not in a way that you realise. there are screenshots of tweets that we have seen screenshots of tweets that we have seen on screenshots of tweets that we have seen on facebook and facebook groups but also in instagram, so to answer her question, instagram status effective when it comes to political pages and it cannot be re—shared in the same way or commented on it when | wp the same way or commented on it when |p°p up the same way or commented on it when i pop up in yourfeet quite the same way or commented on it when i pop up in your feet quite the same way. but lots of them are screen shutting their tweets sojeremy corbyn's account has lots of those tweets and he has used one of the screenshots to deal with educational flavours and policy and something to do with garage and tromp and she has
1.3 million followers so she could be reaching more people than the specific instagram pages where you are relying on instagram followers and personality. entering into the fold a good old-fashioned newsletter. i opened it. outside of the box, it is a new newsletter from bbc news which is being sent out and each will be about a different topic in the election not necessarily by today come by a broad topic and this one is about the stuff that people share on facebook, the organic and also some interesting articles in a few hundred words talking about what people are sharing on facebook, instagram and twitter and you can subscribe by launching this outside
the box and i'll be writing some of them but other colleagues of writing other ones there'll be a couple of other ones there'll be a couple of other ones there'll be a couple of other ones for the week for now but i feel like you will be a bit more frequent. and they have gone to go meet an internet person because they are chasing down another person. the two of them. they are often the evening to go investigate. right, in terms of what else is happening, not just him going to the pub. one of those big moments in the last election for where the conservatives have held for years. and with the tiny majority, the lib dem has said tonight that unilaterally, they are standing down because i was a voice from her, ill make it harderfor her to win and she is of a similar outlook to him on all things brexit
and feels the conservatives should not be victorious. is this the beginning of the party between them and the labour party because the lib dems of told us that they will find somebody else by the candidate deadline and we have a look at all of the candidates for the backseats and all of them will be on the bbc news website. i have a question for election cast. without the musical shares of people not standing in, there must be some deadline for the ballot papers locked in. when is the day? ill mac thursday at five o'clock this coming week. and we will soon find out and about the tray underneath. first part election broadcast which i am told is done in the style of vogue magazine 73 questions have been going rental
celebrities house and follow them around the house less than 73 questions and boris johnson around the house less than 73 questions and borisjohnson is asked about 12, including what do you do up about 12, including what do you do up in the morning? he takes dinner and you don't. and then he is asked if you like his mate and he says yes. i have watched it so many times. and he is asked about his favourite band. two very death—like choices there. and what is really controversial is people of the political persuasion will find a lot of things controversial in it but the main thing is how he makes his tea. he goes into the kitchen, makes a brew and he leaves the bag in. tea. he goes into the kitchen, makes a brew and he leaves the bag inlj think i would endorse that strategy. he is actually responded to those
allegations tonight with the tweets inc. yeah, i like mighty strong, leave the back in. someone said it looks like the camera was the equivalent of somebody who better shoe just as you try to go to the toilet if the head them off, but it's intriguing because the stuff to get shared on social media because here we are talking about it and obviously embedded in the chat with all the messages. and that is all for us tonight if you want to listen to the podcast, is available on bbc south every day, just go for brexit cast and look for more content and for all the bbc‘s newspapers, you know and love, chris and i will be back tomorrow. see you then. good night.
good evening. for the middle part of the week, there's something a bit drier, a break from the week, there's something a bit drier, a breakfrom all the the week, there's something a bit drier, a break from all the wet weather but it will be short—lived. of course, we still have flooding issues across the country and there are still some severe flood warnings and place, but as we head into wednesday, transient ridge of high pressure which is going to help settle things down. when area clearing up towards the north sea but there is another lurking in the wings ready to move in from the atlantic. this evening, still some a shower and rain but through the night it will ease and fade, still a few to feed into northern scotland and still a few shows as well for wells, but later winds with clear skies and the recipe for widespread frost, particularly for the northern half of the uk, the further south
you come, the temperatures may not fall so far but not many will wake up fall so far but not many will wake up to fall so far but not many will wake uptoa fall so far but not many will wake up to a scene like this. frosty was mixing fog in place but it should not be too expensive. once there for many will be a fine, dry, day. with crispy autumn spells from the word good and —— were to go. and on wednesday it will be a cold day and it's just as shorthand on the southwest of england and start to introduce rain. this rain is on the move as we head through wednesday evening and it looks as though it could be a bit of a troublemaker. it will and work its way north and west words, heavy and persistent rain moving in from potential areas that have already seen some many, places like south yorkshire in derbyshire, the range is going to hang around through thursday. boy from that,
there will be drier brighter spells but it was still feel cold on thursday and as he move into thursday and as he move into thursday evening, gradually our area of rain heads out towards the sea and around that's theory low pressure. it will leave some showery outbreaks and it was still feel very windy and that is how we head into 00:28:22,575 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 the weekend, it remains unsettled.
