MP, Mr. Corbin John Mcdonnell, Theresa May discussed on Tina Hobley


You've given me my life back world's first funded by Sunday people reaches in this is a woman with her grandson and showing off her high tech. Let us go to John Craig who is the chief political correspondent at sky needs for roundup of what's been happening in the political world. Good morning to you, Jon morning. Can we kick off with this enormous March so much more so many more people than were expected and seven hundred thousand they recognize the end estimate. Yeah. I've heard lots of different figures about you seen to range between five hundred thousand and seven hundred thousand not as big as the anti Iraq war March back in what was it two thousand? And of course, very little attention. Tony Blair's government pages that Theresa May has repeatedly said that will not be a second referendum. But then she did say, there wouldn't be a general election. Didn't she? Yes. Well, that's the thing about politicians. We can't necessarily believe everything they say that they gain to do all that. They will do all they have done or anything else. Nevertheless, it was actually a certainly did exceed the expectations of the police raids noted that definitely was the case. The species. I guess what what you might call the usual suspects from the remain campaign surprised about data Smith. So the car on a Subaru from the Tories as well Didi Smith. Well, big turnout Sunday. Yes. Begrudge them that. And it's democracy. And my view on is to it's going to be a second referendum. I mean, I wouldn't rule it out because if parliament vote for it. And but I don't quite see a majority forty in parliament yet. I mean labor, of course, as you know, at the conference a few weeks ago decided to keep their options open, but they are divided as well, not just the MP's with some of the big trade unions, like, for example, unite not in favor, whereas some GM. The delicate tightrope really walked by the likes of care Starmer, and Mr. Corbin John McDonnell. So as ever with Labour's Brexit policy. We're not quite sure what they support. No. I think they were ever aware of of. Tiptoeing down the line because of course, quite a load of their heartland voted to leave. I mean, you've got a number of labour backbenchers like Caroline, Flint, for example, a pretty vocal against the second referendum because she's an MP for sequel, dawn valley up judges near Doncaster, and there's plenty of Nolan labor seats seats returned labour MP's over and over again. But when the results came in in two thousand sixteen voted heavily for leave and were one or two seats changed hands at the last election, minefields, one example. Two thousand seat it'd be labor for years, but very pro leave and elected a Tory MP there is there are some jitters among some labor MP's. Of course, those who sit in seats the voted heavily for leaving the scene. Can I just talk about the story, which is on the front page of a number of papers about Theresa May facing a last ditch fight to save her leadership this week again is that it should we just leave it there? Drops it. No. I'm just wondering what your thoughts on that about whether whether you think this is as you say, here's another one. And then we move on. Well, I think the phrase the usual suspects about the remains. But there's a an MP quoted in the mail on Sunday today about how she's got seventy two hours to save her job. Andrew Bridgen who has not sure who. Who he hates more and wants to remove more Theresa May or John berko? He's one of John Burke biggest critics as well. I mean, the the the the timetable is this on Monday. She will go to the house of Commons and make a common statements on what happened in Brussels Tuesday. She's got her cabinet making again, although there's another cabinet meeting pencilled into Thursday, then on Wednesday. Seventy two hours comes in MP's. A of MP is not just the Andrew bridge. Ines and the the malcontents. But a lot of them want her to go to the nineteen twenty two committee, which is the Tory backbenches committee, and defend herself. So she has indeed tough week. My feeling is always been the all those who claim that there are forty eight almost forty eight MP's we want a trigger a leadership contest, I think those numbers are exaggerated and indeed at the Tory conference sa- Graham Brady who chairs the nineteen twenty two committee said it was nothing like the forty eight yet. I I have a hunch that she will survive longer than lots of the pundits. And the the forecasters suggest I'm old enough to remember and cover the the ninety s and John Major's similar sorts of mass. And he limped on he survived a vote of confidence. Of course, he was challenged by John Redwood who still around, of course, any Tim I'm have caught. But of course, the end of that story was that labor labor. Absolutely. Crushed the stories in the nineteen Ninety-seven election. Now, I was talking to the mumps the other day, of course, was around in the nineties John Major's chancellor at one point. And he said, what do you think about the comparisons between now and major domestic rebels and so on he said the big difference? Now is there a formal rebels facing Theresa May and the were facing Joe major which points, I think, well, let's move on to another story, which is in the Sunday Times. And by the way, it was the Sunday Times that it was the tourist Telemachus cost seventy two hours. Listen, I get confused as well, you if you read them, all you, did you think I know somewhere? This is Facebook job could ruin Clegg wounds. Ashdown? Of course, this is the fellow Fulmer liberal Democrat leader Paddy Ashdown saying the role is a reputation risk. I think he's right. I think he's right. I was surprised when I saw that he'd taken this job. He must need the money. I mean, this is Coldplay goes who obviously needs to obviously needs to earn a few bulb. Now only a few years back. He's like two years ago. He writes, a column in the Evening Standard in London saying that they needed to pay more tax. Well, he's not alone in taking that view. I mean, for example, Ma Margaret Hodge as recently as earlier this month said, it was absolutely outrageous. How little tax Facebook paying on their revenues in this country? I think won't headline yesterday had to Facebook was the headline and it six eight. I mean talk about crisis PR in defending the indefensible. This is a company that has been warned by Ben Wallace. The security Minister Theresa May's government about not doing enough to in the fight against terrorism because of all the online terrorist staff, it's data security breaches, they were in July over that. And then there's the tax issue. I mean, it's a tough gig. I mean, he's got this fancy title, the vice president global global affairs. You and me back to Brussels to do more schmoozing because of course, a lot of these dates are laws, but data protection laws. Do come from Brussels. That maybe he thinks that you can only you can only influence from within. And that maybe he can suggest to them that they pay a few more taxes to try to get themselves. All right. John was trying to put a positive spin. It's a Sunday morning. People are waking up very good at that. Yeah. Exactly. Let's do that. I tell you what let's let's let's let's move away from from from the serious stuff because I think the speaker John berko should quit. We've we've I think that's been. It's been pretty comprehensively covered. Can we go onto the other lighter side of politics, and the the Kiwi MP who's been caught up in a in a bit of an exchange with a Scottish MP? Yes. Have you thought you about to play the audio then, but it was? I think sadly, I don't think we've got it. But how have we are just asking the producer? We we don't sadly. I'm sorry. Big enough to do it yourself. The accident. The New Zealand, but what happened was it was what exactly one of the highlights of the parliamentary week it was questions to an MP called Paul Beresford. Now, he is a bit of a ground the seventy plus seventy two I think, and he is on some questions on behalf of the house of Commons commission. This is a chance for peace. So I have a moan about, you know, the toilets in Westminster rats in the trinity and all that nonsense. Anyway, th a Scottish MP called David Linden. Twenty-eight-year-old SMP MP for Glasgow east got up and had a complaint about the access for disabled people in the policy Westminster fair enough. But he's not he has a very Glaswegian accent. I mean, second terms of very heavy accent? The problem was in my view. He spoke very quickly support that he was on seeing the question who is a Kiwi. He's from New Zealand. He made his name as leader wants with counselors been a minister, he's a dentist by profession. He still practices ruled on the second if he's a dentist, John he should be able to understand people because they usually say just as you've got your mouth open all you going anywhere for your holidays. And you say all. And they understand you interrupting me just about to come to my gag thing. Sorry. When it came to understanding, Mr. Linda, and it was like pulling teeth. Anyway, so you Austin to repeat it. So we repeat again, and he still couldn't understand a word. He was so anyway, Lindsey oil the great so Lindsay Hoyle who is my tip for the next speaker MP for Charlie who has a lovely broad Lancastrian accent himself, and there's often been said that each has parliament and a bit like the compared to northern working men's club. He said, I think you'd better send him a letter in writing, and they brought the house staff, and the funny thing was a Welsh MP got up, and he seemed to struggle with him as well. But the prob- I'd say David Linden, speak more. Slowly, that's the problem. Do you know what though John that reminds me of when I worked to put border television. And I went to go and interview a man about he he just wanna queens award for his services for blue blue face sheet. Would you believe, and I went to go and interview Dumfries and Galloway not not full of pits picnic vaccines, which generally difficult to understand? But he's come from somewhere else. I asked my first question. I couldn't understand a word. So I asked the second question thinking, you know, how sometimes it's just because you need to tune in. Sometimes it's just because you're not concentrating and a stupid understand and on same. We're not to get back to the to the building. I just said to everybody can you please help me edit this because I I don't know what he's any was so lovely this, man. And he was laughing, and he was totally. It was great. Lovely with all the sheet behind it was a nice day. Shame. We didn't know we didn't know what he was talking about enough last night. I was watching one of the satellite channels and old episode of rebus, the great story about this great Scottish detective, and I noticed at the top of the screen. It said subtitles and it made me laugh. John. Thank you very much. Succinctly put marvelous John Craig the chief political correspondent of Sky News.
