the way we work is changing, according to a study in the metro. gone is the job for life — millenials are changing jobs on average every four years. and a story we've plucked from the press in indonesia — 2000 children have been given baby chicks to take care of after officials hatched a plan to ween the youngsters off their mobiles. will it work? chickens in my home might bea will it work? chickens in my home might be a bit neglected u nfortu nately. with me is priya lakhani, who's founder and ceo of century tech. the financial times, most of the front pages in the uk today have borisjohnson on their front page, and their analysis of his manifesto, the conservative party manifesto. the financial times talks about the fa ct the financial times talks about the fact that this is a very low risk
vision. do you think they have perhaps learned from the mistakes of the past? 2017, theresa may five ma nifesto, the past? 2017, theresa may five manifesto, where she famously you turned, and it was a disaster. what borisjohnson is trying to do is appeal to the labour heartland, previously he talked about potentially increasing the threshold for the higher rate of income tax, talking about stamp duty, these are not popular with the traditional labour motors, and you will see they are not in the manifesto at all. what he has done is he has steer clear of all of that, but he has talked about these people policies, the nhs is his number one, 50,000 nurses, grants for nurse training, he has talked about the police and education, he has not talked about social care which is a whole other issue, and i think that is what theresa may's biggest issue was. it isa theresa may's biggest issue was. it is a very safe manifesto. and he has
very much pitched it as "let's get back to done at the end ofjanuary and then let's focus on the future of the great written". he is telling us of the great written". he is telling us to imagine what things will look like in ten years time. that is a very britain first, and i know people don't necessarily like this, but if you think of the trump campaign, it was america first, and this is very britain first. he has not done the whole do or die thing, i was looking for that, but we can't do that anymore. it is about get brexit done, absolutely, very different emphasis to joe brexit done, absolutely, very different emphasis tojoe swinson for the liberal democrats, ——jo swinson. he is trying to show people that if we do get that done we're not to overspend "like labour might", and we may not see that period of austerity. looking at the main parties, we have all their ma nifestoes main parties, we have all their manifestoes now, from the point of
view of education, what excites you most? education is your area of speciality, you work with state schools across the country, you know the pressure they are under, you know the lack of resources, you know what they need. i was really excited, prior to the manifestoes, the talk about extra additional funding, the problem is that the devil is in the detail. when you look at the detail, this particular ma nifesto look at the detail, this particular manifesto that came out yesterday from the conservative party, if you spread 200 and messy feeling —— £250 million for childcare over the early yea rs, million for childcare over the early years, that ends up being a child —— a couple of pounds per child a week. we need to do a lot more in education, i don't think any of these manifestoes are quite there yet. when you look at the spending on the part of labour, the early yea rs on the part of labour, the early years spending is looking at £56 billion, compared to the conservatives, which is a lot less. £250 million. the liberal democrats early years spending is even more
than that, they are really setting out their stall aren't they, for particular voters, all three main parties. for me i am also quite focus on teachers, teacher salaries, we need to look at those, they are not paid enough, simply not paid enough. there is more to do. with all this money, this is me being a bit of a sceptic, but when i am looking at £89 billion per year being offered up for day—to—day annual spending... that is in the labour manifesto. where is that coming from, because if we are going to spend in one area, we have to ensure that will not hit certain areas and certain people. if i look at the numbers, manifestoes are full of promises, and will you vote for me, i will spend a lot of money on you and your children. that is what the conservatives are trying to do here is say they are not doing that. whatever does happen, whatever you have setting in your manifesto, can you actually deliver? that is the big question. if anyone gets a
majority in parliament, c. let's move on to el pais, one of the main media organisations and paint —— in spain, part of this international consortium, 70 media partners which in the uk include bbc panorama and the guardian, it is an international consortium of investigative journalists with extremely worrying findings about what is going on in china. many would be reading this this morning, looking at the reports on the tv, thinking, this is what we suspected. despite what the chinese authorities tell us. one point that should be made, that is not necessarily in the detail, is thank goodness for the free press, which allows us to find these things out, and that is what they don't have.” look for stories in the region to see what they were saying, and i have not found much at all. this devastating story about people being detained in these, what they are
calling training camps, and this is arrest by algorithm. the chinese are using maths surveillance —— maths surveillance, this is the big fear of the world, they are using technology, programmes that are on people ‘s phones, data sharing apps, to figure out whether people might be the sort of people that they want to detain, they might be muslim background for example, they are looking at them and thinking, they are putting them in these camps, is extraordinary, i am slightly lost for words by it, and they are brainwashing them, there is mass brainwashing them, there is mass brainwashing happening. the reason we found that out was that there was a leaked memo, highly classified government documents that have been obtained by these journalists, government documents that have been obtained by thesejournalists, have these incredibly strict rules, they are being told how to sleep, when to use the toilet, sleeping in a certain position, once they can prove they no longer believe whatever their beliefs are that the chinese are so against, and they may
be able to leave, because a committee of maybe four organisations... it is a huge human rights violation. and yet we hear about this, we read about it, we see the evidence, my other colleague john sat with was taken to these camps by the chinese authorities, to show him around and give him access, they want to convey the image internationally that they are not, what are being shown in these documents of systematic rain washing going on on a massive scale of muslims in particular. it will be interesting to see what this means for future relations between china... it does, yeah. and the united states in terms of trade, because when it comes to business we wa nt to because when it comes to business we want to do business with china. the chinese ambassador is denying this, he said yesterday that this is all fa ke he said yesterday that this is all fake you —— fake news, they were in com plete fake you —— fake news, they were in complete denial. who is the world's superpower? the world's superpower might actually set some of the
values we see in this world. if we are anti—american, we have to think, is this the alternative?” are anti—american, we have to think, is this the alternative? i am going to quickly jump over to is this the alternative? i am going to quicklyjump over to the story in the guardian, tim berners—lee talking about his plan to save the world wide web, i will tweet that, because he also spoke to our technology reporter. this story in the metro, job five, four years will do us, millennials moving employers every four years, i was not surprised to hear about this. the idea of one career is really evaporating now, and the a ppg, which is a parliamentary group that look at this, says we may have 17 koreas our lifetime. we are likely to work for much longer, into a mid 60s. to work for much longer, into a mid 605. 6096 to work for much longer, into a mid 60s. 6096 of jobs won't exist or will be done in new ways over the next ten years, that was the report, pwc have done some reports, they will be a world of new opportunities, ——, but also there will be a world in
which automation will take its place. what we have to do is ensure young people have the ability to learn how to learn, learning agility so learn how to learn, learning agility so they can up skill while they for these opportunities. it is interesting to see why they move, more money, career progression. millennials have high expectations of what they want from their employer. we often talk about millennials who align themselves with the brand of a company, it did not go into that, but it seems to be very black—and—white reasons as to why they might move. the world of work is changing, thank you very much indeed for your time, and thank you as well, loads of comments about that story. many of you have been in touch, some of you who are in your mid— 50s, talking about how long you have worked for the employer you are with, look at the hashtag for all your comments, and i will see you very your comments, and i will see you very soon, your comments, and i will see you very soon, goodbye.
hello. as we move into the final week of meteorological autumn, there is more rain in the forecast. through the early hours of monday morning, the heaviest of the rain across south—west england, wales, into northern ireland. ahead of this, the rain a little patchier, but a lot of cloud, some drizzle further north and east, so it's a murky, misty, mild start to monday morning, but quite wet in places. and these spells of rain will gradually track their way northwards as the day wears on, perhaps not getting as far north as the far north of scotland, but still quite a windy day for shetland, and for all of the uk, it's another mild afternoon, if rather soggy. poor visibility in places as well, but temperatures 9 to 13 celsius on monday afternoon. we'll keep those outbreaks of rain going through the evening. slowly, they'll start to ease away northwards. drier, but cloudy for a time before our next band of rain arrives into the south—west through the early hours of tuesday morning. with it comes some tropical air, so temperatures overnight into tuesday won't drop much lower than 7 or 8 celsius, and this is because in this area of low pressure is the remnants of what was tropical storm sebastien, and it's also going to pep up the rainfall and strengthen the winds on tuesday. so, across parts of south wales
and south—west england, we could well see widespread gusts of 40 to 50 miles an hour coupled with further heavy rain. now, falling onto already saturated ground, we have a number of met office rain warnings in place on tuesday. this rain again spreading its way northwards across the uk, not raining all the time. there will be some breaks in that, maybe some brighter skies, but further heavy showers are never too far behind. and, again, it will be quite a windy day, particularly across parts of wales, south—west england, southern coasts too, and it's going to be very mild — 10 to 14 celsius the top temperature on tuesday afternoon. now, this area of low pressure continues to rotate around and pushing its way eastwards across the uk on wednesday, so still a very messy picture and still quite wet, further heavy rain. again, we've got met office warnings in place for the middle part of the week and also some strong winds across northern scotland, still some gusty winds along welsh coasts down into south—west england and along channel coasts as well. 10 to 12 celsius the top temperature
on wednesday afternoon. and then things slowly start to change through the second half of the week. as our area of low pressure drifts its way eastwards, we start to pull down a north—easterly wind and that will return some colder air across much of the uk as we go into thursday and friday. so, by the time we get to friday morning, most of us will be waking up to a frost again. so, to sum up the week ahead — mild and cloudy, wet and windy at times, but eventually, drier and colder later in the week. bye— bye.
good morning. welcome to breakfast, with louise minchin and dan walker. 0ur headlines today: almost half of uk universities are expected to be disrupted today as lecturers and support staff begin eight—day industrial action. record numbers turn out for local elections in hong kong, with pro—democracy candidates looking set to record a huge victory. labour are vowing to tackle dodgy landlords if they win the election, with plans to improve conditions for tenants in privately owned accomodation. shoppers are set to spend £2.5 billion this week on black friday offers. but are we really getting a bargain?
