comments had received a promotion and she said that she was sorry that she hadn't taken that into account in italy let's just have a listen to some of what the chancellor was saying today. there's of each to go if that's not true it's all the more important of course that we now start solving people's problems we have resolved some of them but in some areas during the past months we were too concerned with ourselves that has to change. or there is a plural pronoun here we have not been solving people's problems now this public outrage has been focused on anglo-american but she's just one of a number of people and it's in the coalition who are getting the blame right now and and this is all underscored the gap hasn't the tween politicians in the coalition and the broader public has this decision addressed that gap. well i think this is

3:07 pm
a thread. well that's quite a drastic sort of way of putting it certainly it does look like a crime of crisis you've had three crisis meetings in the last ten days and you've has certainly had people within the coalition parties talking about the end of the coalition if certain things are not achieved but as i think as i say the chancellor was saying today it's time to get back to the nitty gritty of real political issues housing jobs pensions breaks it was an issue that the chancellor mentioned when she was speaking earlier there are plenty of things for people to do and frankly the electorate won't understand it in this particular squabble about an internal matter in the ministry carries on being fought out in public simon young first or a simon thanks very much for. now for some of the other stories making the news
