"The paper review on Bloomberg daybreak Europe. The news you need to know from today's papers. So joining us this morning put it back to Leigh Anne garon's with some of the headlines in the newspapers. Well, of course, one of the big issues Leanne is the 18% inflation forecast, the time splashes on that. Also, the independence editorial is trusses boosts to ish case for tax cuts doesn't stand up to scrutiny and then the FT reporting on the BA cuts further cuts to flights. Good to have you with us at Leigh Anne. So a lot of focus then and it is the lead in many newspapers about just how high price rises could go in Britain. Yes, indeed, we actually got this news yesterday Caroline, but it's still dominating many of the front pages because it's a pretty frightening figure, inflation will hit its highest level in nearly half a century of 18.6% early next year. That's according to new forecasts, economists at city, the American bank, said the BOE might now be forced to raise interest rates from the present level of 1.75% to as high as 7%, the time reports are 18% inflation forecasts will now put pressure on the BOE to increase those interest rates in a bid to really get the economy under control. The energy price cap is also expected to rise to 3582 pounds in October and 4266 in January according to forecast by Cornwall insight consultancy this month and tomorrow not tomorrow because tomorrow is not Friday, but on Friday off gem, the energy regulator will announce the October price cap, but Caroline, you and Steven just spoke to Sharon Graham there unite general secretary and there are strikes happening in this country because of inflation because people are not being paid in line for this. So this is really causing ripple effects across the whole of the economy and the country. Meanwhile, the independence editorial looking at Liz truss's plans for an emergency budget. Yes, so the independent is looking just at this thing and basically it's saying the emergency budget would bypass the usual scrutiny of the office for budget responsibility, Steven, the paper argues that trusted OBR is the latest institution to be useful budget responsibility, Steven, the paper argues that trusted OBR is the latest institution to be sidelined for sordid political purposes. The OBR was created a decade ago by George Osborne, now this was really to try to keep governments as honest as possible, and as the independent sees it, it now represents an impediment to Liz truss's reckless dogmatic tax cutting agenda. But I want to bring you is quite a sentence actually. It's quite blistering, but the trust campaign says immediate action is required and that Etruscan government would seek to act as soon as possible to help people across the UK by cutting taxes and introducing a temporary monitoring on energy levels. So that's the argument set out there and as we've been talking about inflation is just set to soar early next year and people are concerned about energy prices right now. Sure. Okay, Leon garan, thank you very much. That's been through the papers. This is Bloomberg

"Can point to the government, et cetera and say, look, we are being good banks. Also, you've got the government guarantee, which is due to run out at the end of this year, but I suspect they may extend that. Pays prices? Well, yes. I mean, as they are, when you look at the affordability metrics, they are towards the top end of what they've been for the last 5 to ten years. And over a 30 year period, they're way high. But equally, it's the cost of rent. I mean, yes, mortgages are still going up. But renting has been that much more expensive for a great deal of time. And as I say, for British people, certainly, baby boomers et cetera. Home ownership was the way they got wealthy and home ownerships the way that we think about it. I think millennials probably a little bit more experience over ownership now as they're not quite as big a drive. How about just generally speaking, Jonathan Bloomberg's headquarters in London right in the center of the City of London, beautiful new brand new building, so much new building construction of office space. Every time I go to London, I'm just amazed how many cranes there are in the city. Are people coming back to London or are they staying away? Well, I think the sort of working from the office two to three days a week is picking up and then if you pick the right day, go back to the city, you would think it was 2018, 2019. And also, I think people we saw the big migration. Everybody wanted to live in Cornwall. Commute away from London. We are seeing people who have also realized it's not all it's cracked up to be. You don't have the convenience that you have in London. So I think that trend is slowly reversing, but I mean, that said, London house prices were already so expensive that as I say, if you're a first time buyer, it's an awful lot of money for a one bed flat. Sort of two and a half times the national average for a three bed hat. Wow. It sounds like a crazy imbalance there. All right, our thanks to Bloomberg intelligence senior banks analyst Jonathan tice.

Duchess of Cornwall 'Can't Stop Talking' About Joe Biden's 'Long, Loud' Fart at COP26
"A lot of people listening right now don't know this, but this is it's been all over the Internet. I love when people say it's been all over the Internet, or the Internet is angry about something. Well, the fact of the matter is that at the G 8 summit or the G 6 summit when they were talking about greenhouse gases and climate change, this is not a joke, folks. This is a sad statement. Our leader Joe Biden, vice President Biden was with Camilla Parker Bowles, the duchess, of Cornwall. The duchess of Cornwall. Now that is, this is the woman that Charles was enamored of during his marriage with Princess Diana. You'll remember this. And then eventually, of course, he married Camilla Parker Bowles, who is now the Dutch as she styled officially as the duchess of Cornwall. Now, if you hear those sirens, I'm in Wichita, Kansas. So I have no idea whether it would be sirens here. It doesn't make any sense. Usually we have science in New York. Anyway, I'm in Wichita. And I want to tell you about where I am and everything. But before I get into all that, I just want to say that there was a royal incident that was reported. It's all over the news this morning. I have put it on Twitter. If you don't follow me on Twitter or on gab or just make sure it's not a tornado siren, right? I don't know what that was happening. I don't know. All I know is I'm in Wichita. They tell me. So it seems that Joe Biden while he was talking to Camilla Parker Bowles, the duchess of Cornwall and the wife of the Prince Charles, he I don't know how to put this. He passed what we would like to call gas, very loudly. And it was a long, low kind of like a boatswain's call. If you've ever been in the navy, actually no, that's high pitched. This was, but it was widely reported. Camilla talked to people about it and it got out. So it's all over the news. And I guess this is what you call breaking news.

School botox mission is to reduce the cost and time requirements to monitor coral reefs by using artificial intelligence autonomous underwater vehicles and citizen science. I guess and of course this work. Jake developed a database of fish and came up with the idea of taking people's underwater video footage and identifying fish in the video. If you go to the name net fish dot com website you can view short video on what the finished product looks like. Jake also has assured Tutorial on how to make a submission the site says it will accept dot m. p. four emo v dot j. peg in png files. Max file.

They introduced me to an organization called washed ashore and the articles title said using discarded plastic to save the ocean. Now washed ashore. It is a five. Oh one three or c three nonprofit arts and environmental education organization aimed at bringing to light the world's plastic pollution problem. Well how well washed ashore started by angela ponzi who is a lifelong lover of the ocean and after the death. Her husband from a brain tumor. She turned to the ocean for healing. What she also found was that the ocean needed healing as well so she turned her artistic talents into creating sculptures. That are marine-related using the plastic. That is washed up ashore and they do some spectacular sculptures. I was also amazed by the fact that they have over fourteen thousand volunteers. Working with washed ashore. These are not small sculptures. Either you can check them out at washed ashore and take a look at some of their work. You will be amazed well. I'm sure that we've all heard about the billionaires who are competing to go into space amazing stuff for someone who grew up at the start of the space race in the nineteen sixties. But there's also another race going on and that's the race to build the world's deepest pool at the top of the list. Right now is deep dive. Dubai located in nod al sheba. Which is fifteen minutes from downtown dubai. It's an amazing sixty meters deep. That's one hundred ninety seven feet and contains fourteen million liters of water or three point. Seven million gallons. The pools constant thirty degrees celsius or eighty six degrees fahrenheit. It is team doesn't abandon sunken city. Now that's pretty cool. They have an onsite hyperbaric chamber restaurant gift shop and dive shop. Put this in perspective. The other deep pools around the globe include. Why forty in italy at forty two point one five meters deep spot in poland at forty five point four meters and there's either one coming online or it's online and crom cornwall england. That's called blue vis at fifty meters deep. I wonder if there's some kinda limit on just how deep can build a pool. I'm sure we'll be amazed and finally today.

Liberals like Biden Can Only Play Boogeyman Politics
"Our policies are a disaster on the sucks scale, you know, like a 98 and 100 on the scale of how bad a policy that sucked So what they do is they get you to try, you know, to vote or try to get you to vote for them by saying the other guy sucks worse. That's it. That's the whole liberal agenda. They rarely run on their agenda in swing districts. You know Nancy Pelosi's district, they can run on whatever they want. But in swing districts you almost never hear liberals say things like higher taxes are wonderful. Government controlled health care is fantastic. We're going to confiscate all your guns. It only works in San Francisco. They don't do it because sane Americans and swing districts don't give a crap about any of that stuff. I think it's all crazy. So their whole agenda is well, The other guy sucks a lot worse. So I call the boogeyman politics, But liberals are phone ease.

"In the end you have a policy which people don't support and then finally jasmine. Some of the topics covered the summit. One is goes education aboard. This is one thing that boris johnson has been personally involved in one of the leaders hoping to achieve yes as a real sense of the impact of the pandemic on girls and women has been pretty disproportionate and there are lots of concerns about gender based violence increasing. The pandemic are concerns about young girls. Dropping out of school entirely a often seen as the off is gaping policy especially in low income middle income countries. And say gee.

Education has been prioritized by dominic robb on the government said that it will be spending around four hundred million on girls education but charities and Gossage occasion will be impacted by the foreign aid cuts as as does this continued attention. That was being played out. And then the other big announcement. We've seen georgia's on global tax avoidance which. I'm sure you've heard many g seven summits over the years and before the main festivities kicked off in coal more those this announcement from the finance lead as they would on a global minimum tax rate of fifteen percent in this was an aim to try and avoid company shopping around that profits from country to country to pays minimum tax as possible.

Misses a pledge which is being rolled out over the next year. Some people say they'd like to live it by the end of twenty one. But i think it is significant a big picture that g seven is an attempt by the west to show that they can deliver full the developing world that they can show leadership and talk about voting. Sometimes there's real concern in some of the western capitals china and russia in particular using vaccine's as a way of extending their influence into the developing world offering jobs with strings attached as anthony blinken.

"In international agreements. And you got the british approach. The boris johnson approach which is useful muddle through and take slightly more pragmatic approach. And when you hear. We'll see david frost writing in the financial times for example bemoaning. Eu legal curious sec's it will. The eu doesn't forcibly so. It's a clash of cultures and at the moment both sides deadlocked and it's hard to see exactly how they're going to find your way through well this dispute de threatened to overrule the g. seven summit because there was a story that appeared on the front page of the times the day before the whole thing began which revealed that'd been a more diplomatic rebuke from the us the uk fron flaming tensions and encouraging the uk to make compromises even if they were unpopular at the phone secretary. Dominic robb who was in that bilateral meeting between boris. Johnson and joe biden told the bbc on friday. That's okay in that meeting. And that was actually complete coherence between the uk and the us on the issue of northern ireland. We understand the us interest in it as a longstanding guarantor of the good friday agreement and it was an opportunity for the prime minister to explain that we want a flexible pragmatic approach. That deals with the equities on both sides but for that to happen the eu must be less period more pragmatic more flexible in the implementation of it. The ball is very much in the us. Go relation to that. It feels as if the us is being good copy That readout from the meeting between president five end. Boris johnson said that both sides were committed to the good fight air gleaming. Nobody's looking at trying to raise the tension imagined when the european leaders join us down coal. Mo- that they might be a little less diplomatic than joe biden was yes indeed but the truth is the brits have a point hit. Which is that north denied and has unique circumstances. And if you read the protocol. It's actually kind of jumble of contradictions. It starts with a preamble that this girl should impinge on the everyday lives of ordinary northern irish people as far as possible. It should reduce checks at the border. And then if you carry on reading lists fast annex e you law that northern ireland will follow and justice. boris. Johnson pats signed it with his fingers behind its back. The irish government told the eu. This deal was going to work. It was going to avoid a north-south border. And that may well have been an unrealistic expectation that it was going to work by creating a border in the irish unionist would accept and so i can see a world where actually yes. There's a strong irish lobby in america but some of these issues are coming up. Things like rabies guide dogs and other real issues created by this board in the irish sea. I think the americans will also quietly be putting pressure on brussels to be a bit more realistic because this does create border inside the internal market of the uk. Johnston's pretty good at playing the national sovereignty cards and i think the eu needs to be very careful about the fight it picks because if northern ireland is in real unrest and turbulence and brussels sitting there banging on about its regulations. It may find itself on the wrong side of the argument. Well this is. What ursula von d'alene had to say this week about the dispute and really putting the onus on the uk to try and come up with solutions to the issue we agreed with the united kingdom that the protocol was the only solution and showing the absence of a heart board of northern ireland. We've been really debating that since years and we found the one and only solution now. We have a treaty on that the withdrawal agreement it has been signed by both sides packed us on seven under. It is important that we now implement the protocol so george. Where do you think this goes next. Time is running out for the next budget deadline on when of these checks are meant to be introduced here and it feels as if law david frost. Who is the person.

Back to that convening palace you can imagine wolf bowers johnson once all the leaders leave. This is pictures of them elbow bumping looking happy and smiling and that was what you saw from joe biden. Yesterday that he was caught on camera by. The bbc may said a disappointed by the weather and he was singing so beautiful. He doesn't even matter it's sunny and of course all this stuff is fluff but in terms of optics you can imagine given how nevis boris johnson. Wall's going into this summit. He must be quite happy about how it's come off so fall. Yeah i think that's correct. And i think it's important to see g seven in the context of the uk trying to reposition itself faced brexit. I'm really established. Kleberson means subtly the policy of the g. seven is important and making sure that there are tangible policies that johnson component to off the summit. But oh say he said it's the optics and giving the impression that the uk is a global leader can work with other countries in or out of the e. Now we've won't topic which is not so happy. And that is northern ireland and pete foster. The point is that we've had here. Is that tensions over northern ireland protocol signed as part of the uk's withdrew agreement from eve has been increasing rapidly. Give us a background on. What's going on at the moment. So would heard about the sausage walls which are on level very trivial but they go to the core of this issue with the northern ireland brokaw. Which is that in order to do. Brexit avoid a north-south border in ireland. Boris johnson agreed off goods that went from great into northern ireland would follow eu rules and that includes for example that sausages and chilled meats. Chicken nuggets have to go frozen as they do now from the uk. If you send them to salamanca strasbourg. They need to go. Frozen and essentially the british government is reneging on that and that's a problem because the european union feels that johnson's going back on his word and johnson talks about the rules-based international order. Just as he's in the middle as the uc's at of ripping up a treaty that he signed came into force only six months ago and overall the mood. Music in cornwall. There are really difficult days coming up to twenty days now between now and whether see whether the uk follows the rules on sausages decides to unilaterally break them and then we see what the eu does. Its promise retaliation and you know. There are scenes in in northern ireland. Mass men marching reporter down down the shankill promising. There's gonna be trouble. And so if there is trouble in northern ireland johnson stands his ground on a point of principle appointed defending the territorial and constitutional integrity of the uk. Which is what he said in the commons and i think a lot of people in the uk would probably support him on that. The conversations between washington and london might be rather less cozy than they've been at the summit with george. This comes to the question about the protocol and bush on didn't like this. He signed up to it because he wanted to get a brexit with door. Deal dump before going to the country on general election. Of course he was rewarded with that big majority but the fact is it was always going to be incredibly difficult to implement and did the uk ever really believe in implementing the protocol. Well there are different.

There's a whole lotta security. There's miles of fencing going up businesses shutting down outs you know. I think there's a a pride about this. And i think actually it's one of those things where people complain a bit beforehand and actually see the pitches of their regional nation as many corners with regard it on the television screens being beamed around the world and take the sense of pride but there are two sides to cool.

It sat sense And your dad deciding not to have his accent because of being teased for it that kind of feeds into this. Which is this sense that Other people will define you by the accent you have and so i was thinking when you when you do engage with a voice for character all for over a puppet For when you're doing voice overs or or on the rating stories and things like that is something that happens when you when you do a voice and you saw this because this kind of character. I did a really good question. I think that for me right character comedy or creating a character. What's really good is to base a character on a real person even if that's just your starting point because real people have way more interesting than a template so i never got that thing going. I'm going to do hairdresser. They're going to be an idiot. They're going to have a london accent. Because it's it's nothing. It's not real based in anything but if you go to character this based on this belligerent woman. He questioned where smell was coming from forty long and was really quite annoying and a bit nasal and she's very pedantic. Is this one person i know. And then i'm going to use her voice and impression of her voice and fill out the world so give her boyfriend. Give us some encounters. Give us some stories and some journeys and see how she would react so for me creating a carrot to the the voice that the person has is so for example i do. I'm going to do account with an irish accent. It's just interesting to me because wars star is so broad. But if i went i'm going to do character based on the fact that my now my irishman turns on me.

Tehmina Goskar Critically Engages with Curation, Wherever It Happens
"For the past six and a half years more or less weekly museum. People gather on twitter for something called museum our together. These people form a peer to peer community supporting discussion and debate between those who work in enjoy and challenge museums society. That's the beauty of museum. Our is entirely independent. It is not an organization is just about holding a space so other people can talk with each other. This is dr to meena car who co-founded museum our back in october. Twenty fourteen gosper also founded the curatorial research center. Hello my name is to mean a costco. And i am the director and curator of the curatorial research center and that's an organization. I started back in two thousand eighteen very much to support fellow curator's from around the world and also to make progress in modernizing curatorial practice this month gosper officially steps back from her role in museum. Our i wanted this to serve as both exit interview and a chance to highlight other projects that she has founded based on her curatorial. Philosophies museum i started can october two thousand fourteen sophie balancer. Who was the co founder with me got together over twitter. We've never met in real life. Goodness knows whether we ever will. Sophie was based up in the north of england. I'm based in the far west of cornwall. That we both decided we'd give the idea of the discussion based hours that were kind of finding their feet on twitter at that time so we decided to give it a go and it's grown and grown and grown and changed a lot since then of course twitches also changed hugely in terms of who participates. Who feels confident about speaking out. Who likes in the background. There is a lot of polarization on the platform. Now and so we've changed adapted museum iowa to all of those trends that we've seen happen including it's growing politicize ation as well. If i'm being honest i've kind of treated the whole thing. Even six and a half years own as an ongoing experiment in trying to understand how it is people like to communicate with each other and how it is that you can provide some kind of support for this peer to pay contact is what we're really after on museum archipelago. We look at museums as a medium and twitter is also a medium one that has changed since museum. Our started six and a half years ago since then. Twitter has shifted from a simple subscriber model. One we you see all the tweets from the people you follow the order that they tweeted to a system that uses algorithms that optimize for other factors such as engagement with the tweets. This can make a global conversation about museums. Difficult with the change in. How twitter is managed. And how the concept of driving engagement and algorithms are dictating. What we see on our timelines. There has absolutely been an impact on museum our because of that. We've got to work much harder to try and get ideas for topics for example people's ideas out to as broad an interested audience participation group that we can and that has proven very difficult in fact particularly of late because people's timelines also manipulated by twitter's algorithms and because they're so much more noise on twitter than there was so. I'm kind of glad that museum. Our has managed to hold its own. It retains a light structure. It does support those intimate conversations as well as supporting bigger thoughts and opinions and even ones that people disagree about in one space. I've participated in even hosted a few museum hours. And the thing that reminds me of the most is a museum conference or at least the conversations that you might have at museum conference which is yet another medium but interestingly docker says that museum our has never been about recreating that experience. That certainly isn't the kind of experience you usually get unless you Fortunate enough to be able to afford to go to very expensive. Large international museum conferences. For example like the newseum association conference in the uk or any of items conferences but we've never really perceived if museum hours to fill that kind of gap with still kind of exploring what it is that we think we're doing and that's just by way of being very honest about no having an agenda and letting sort of the emergent process of museum our happened
