as they are across the UK with DUP leader Jeffrey Donaldson among those who have tested positive Storm wants health minister Robert swan says there will be additional asks of the public after today's meeting Now here in the UK a man has denied murdering conservative MP David Amos and Essex He was stabbed multiple times while meeting constituents in Leon sea in October Ali harby alley has also pleaded not guilty to preparing acts of terrorism between May 2019 and September The 25 year old from North London is due to go on trial in March And Singapore's freezing ticket sales for flights and

travel as well as overland bus services with Malaysia People who already have tickets will indeed be able to travel Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quick tag powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries and the annual this is Bloomberg Caroline Thank you so much Lincoln with the world news Now it's time for square mile of deep dive into city news Women make up the majority of nonexecutive directors at the top of 150 listed companies in the UK now and that for the first time that's compared with just 18% of women on boards a decade ago according to the recruitment firm Spencer Stewart and joining us this morning is shami iqbal who Spencer Stuart's UK managing partner Shall we thank you so much for being with us We like to track these numbers This is for the last reporting year then to April Women or female neds have jumped Why Yeah absolutely It's good news It's a combination of things Caroline So it's about focus it's about every board now is focused on representation of all types There's a general is one of them They haven't done a Gander review from 2016 instead of focus on this And there are more women coming through now Now this does appetizer The answer is a good news story and absolutely it It doesn't ask a little bit that the pipeline is not so good So we need to keep to keep an eye on that because the number of executives coming through they're still work to do that But if it is a good news story for sure Yeah okay No and I was going to come on to the more troubling elements The government has target for women on boards over all that doesn't look so good the news around people of color on UK boards also pretty appalling and the Hampton Alexander report you mention was grim because it showed how much in part of an intractable sort of problem this is getting more women and more diverse representation on boards Yeah as you say it does mask some of the deeper problems isn't it We can take ourselves a 26 years now and over a 150 largest companies that we've surveyed There's basically a top 50 companies in minus on the investment trust There's still 50 companies that have not met the 33% women on the board target by April Now we do expect that to be better when we do it next year But yes there is I mean there's the reporting of the differential in terms of male and female pay As you say is enough of a light being shown in some ways the UK is something of an example For other countries but is it enough really to get change quickly enough So I think the government spotlight is one thing and having targets and holographic metrics But the fact now I think is that many more organizations and boards are waking up to the fact that proper representation at the very top of their organization whether that be executive levels or non executive levels is crucial for their business survival The fact is that in more diverse organizations perform better and so we'll start to see various stakeholders of that be employees and that be customers as that be client is organizations which firms they engage with based on how diverse their organizations are What do you think that the pandemic will have done to this lots of discussions around Whose career the pandemic has hurt most I suppose What's your view on that I mean it's still ongoing two years into this health crisis Yes It's really tough and it's difficult to analyze the data yet because as you say but still feels like we're sort of back in the eye of the storm again Dave does suggest that this won't be great for female executives because we've seen some of the data coming through that women executives are bearing the brunt of various things whether it be family whether it be elderly relatives or there'll be younger children and one of the challenges that there's always been that slight discussion around executive promotions for women as well and at the very time that women are becoming executives There are various things going on in their lives perhaps Go to total wine you'll save more so many wines and beers galore down through the aisles with corks to pop as for friendly advice why.

"First up, though. In parliament yesterday, Britain's prime minister Boris Johnson led tributes to sir David Amos. A man who used his decades of experience to offer friendship and support to new members of all parties. Whose views often confounded expectation and defied easy stereotype. And who believed not just in pointing out what was wrong with society, but in getting on and doing something about it. On Friday, the member of parliament was stabbed to death in a church in the small town of Leon sea in southeast England. As on every Friday, the Conservative Party MP was there to meet local people and hear their concerns. A 25 year old man has been arrested in the attack has been declared a terrorist incident. Many MPs are now calling for greater protections. In the wake of sir David's death, Chris Bryant and MP with the Labor Party called for people to be kinder. He then received a death threat from a man who was later arrested. It's not just name calling, but really, you know, vile threats to people's lives to their families and to those who are around. And we've got to change as a country. We've just got to change. Constituency surgeries where MPs meet voters to discuss local issues are a long-standing quirk of British politics. But not for the first time, there are fears these surgeries may be too dangerous to continue in their current form. So, David Amos was a very long-standing Tory MP. Joe Rogan is a Britain correspondent for The Economist. He was first elected in 1983 is election was seen as a symbol of the coming sort of Thatcher era and the growing Tory party appeal amongst working class voters. And since then, despite being an MP4 decades now, he's never been particularly prominent. He is what is known as a good local MP in British politics, which means that he spent a lot of time listening to his constituents complaints and their worries and their lives. And then he sort of would pick up causes which caught him usually from meeting his constituents. What kinds of causes? For example, I believe one of his early bills was against the cruel tethering of horses, which was something which caused a great deal of agitation in his area. But if we do have a later debate, it does give the house an opportunity to talk about animal welfare generally cruelty to animals and the welfare of farm yard animals figure success was cutting fuel poverty, which was inspired by the rather tragic case of a constituent of his who had died in a cold house and then recently he'd started campaigning on endometriosis because again a constituent had come up to him and said that this disease was very poorly diagnosed and very poorly understood. So he was one of the hundreds of MPs who don't get famous, but nonetheless do quite a lot of good by working on unglamorous causes. And this isn't the first time we've seen it an attack of this sort on an MP speaking to constituents. No, rather depressing ladies and we had in 2016 Joe Cox was murdered by a far right extremist. She was also on the way to what is called an MP's surgery where MPs talk to their constituents here their concerns. It's a pretty idiosyncratic British, political institution, one that many politicians are very attached to. But the meeting with the public element, obviously, it makes them quite vulnerable in some way. So we've had two other attacks of this nature, one was in 2010, which was a Stephen timms, who was an MP for east ham. He got stabbed by another Islamist extremist who attacked him at the time, and then in 2000, we had Nigel Jones who I believe was attacked with a samurai sword and his assistant Andrew Pennington died protecting him. That wasn't any ideological motivation there, I believe it was a constituent who was drowning in debts and mentally unwell and began to blame Nigel Jones for his troubles. So these these surgeries, what are these meetings like? What are they for? Basically, what happens is they're on a regular basis, MPs are expected to go back to the constituencies that they were elected in and hold meetings with their constituents sometimes they will ask for appointments, but sometimes people are allowed to just drop in and MPs almost act as social workers in a way and these things people will come and go. I'm having trouble getting my asylum claims processed. I'm having trouble with antisocial behavior in my area. The road is riddled with potholes where I live. So the very simple things often and I think many of them enjoy involving themselves in the lives of their constituents as feeling like they're making a real difference as a result of become a very central part of their duties. But as much as these surgeries are a British habit, the risk to politicians is certainly not limited to Britain. Yes, to an extent in 2015, we saw Henrietta reka, the mayor of cologne was stabbed in the neck by someone motivated by anti immigrant sentiment. I should add that she survived. We saw the liberal merit. Murdered in 2019 in both of these occasions they were attacked at public events, which aren't quite the same as these one on one meetings that British MPs indulge in. The closest analogy I can actually think of is maybe Gaby Giffords, the U.S. congresswoman who got shot in 2011, she was doing a talk called Congress on your corner, which was sort of informal meetings with voters in her seat. So that's perhaps similar, but that was a bit of an innovation. It's not such an integral part of the political system and political culture in the same way that it is in the UK. So how to maintain that to political culture that quirk and keep MPs safe? There is going to be a review into MP security. The national police, chief council has contacting all MPs to discuss security with them. And some MPs are saying they need to take more precautions. But on the other hand, many MPs are very resistant to this concept, just Phillips, who's a very outspoken, labor MP, so she doesn't want any security measures, which would interfere with her doing her job, similarly, Diane Abbott, who's a black female labor MP and received some of the most vile threats of any MP has said that she wouldn't want any police at her constituency surgeries, because it might put off some of her constituents from coming. She has said that she might adopt a plexiglass screen of some sort, but again, the fact that it's taken frankly two murders for her to begin contemplating this despite the many threats that she receives really does tell you something about how reluctant MPs are to have anything which they feel gets in the way of them interacting freely with their constituents. It sounds as if on balance MPs are more enamored of this kind of face to face contact than they are worried about their safety. Do you think even in the face of this attack that they'll continue to feel that way? Look, I think it's going to be inevitable that there are some changes. Maybe some of them will bring police into the surgeries either standing outside or in the room. There may be an element of MPs becoming a little bit more distant from their constituents because these security measures are a little bit harder to reach, which would be very sad to see because the type of people who come to complain about things to their employees are quite desperate and really are looking for anyone who can offer them some degree of help. So in your view, no chance they'll be abandoned. If I were to inject a slightly hopeful note, I do think the sheer level of attachment that most MPs do have to this surgery will at work means that they are going to try and keep any changes that they feel would interfere with their work to a minimum. We like to criticize MPs a lot in this country and some suggest that the sheer level of vitriol directed at them has contributed to the last two attacks. But most MPs.

"Years on. It's frightening, isn't it? I mean, you know, irrespective of what party MPs represent the vast majority of there because they want to make people's lives better. And they're working incredibly hard. The hours that MPs put in so much of it is unseen. People think we live in castles and we have moats and dock houses and the reality is actually very, very different, so many MPs are actually really embedded in their local communities just like David was. How are you going to remember David? I remember his kindness, particularly when I was diagnosed with cancer last year. He rang me and he told me that he'd met my successor in the corridors in parliament and he'd gone up to him and said I'm David. I was a great friend of callers. And he's a very hard act to follow. And he sent me flowers and he kept in touch, but I think most of all I'll remember the camaraderie in the laughter that we shared. And how he let up a room with his smile. Polish Erith the former labor MP remembering her friend, sir David Amos, and perhaps that struck a chord with you in a slightly different way, but connected around those that you hold dear in your life and those you are close to who perhaps you couldn't be further opposed to in many ways. Politically, socially, in any sort of way. Maybe that is what people are thinking about a bit more in the last few days, since he was killed doing what he loved, working with his constituents, and perhaps a focus on that is a good thing to do. So with your help, if you do want to tell me and share with all of our fellow, all of your fellow listeners, all of us together here on women's those that you have a good friendship with a Bond who perhaps you don't see eye to eye on all issues or perhaps any issues at all. Let me know who they are and how you met and how you have them in your life and how you talk with one another. 8 four 8 four 8 four four is the number you need to text me on or on social media were at BBC women's own, of course you can always email to via our website. Now I asked you right at the beginning of the program about having your own cave. Well, a cave of one zone. Feel like it all gets a bit much at times, fancy crawling into one, a woman in the Yorkshire dales have spent over a hundred hours in a cave, a cave that she owns to be precisely so barren and owns stump cross caverns and on Friday night completed. I'm told a 105 hours stint underground. She runs these caves as a family business. It is a tourist attraction, which I'm also told normally gets 60,000 visitors a year, but because of COVID like so many the business has taken a real hit. Lisa, I believe you're talking to me now from the cave. I am absolutely yes. I'm here in my cave. With the brilliant with the brilliant brilliant echo that a cave provides. And absolutely. It wouldn't normally ask this, especially of my female guests because it's very, very rarely relevant, but what are you wearing? So I've got my cavemen out of this on. Go and describe that to us before you explain why. What does that mean? Yeah, so I've got nothing chances on. I have some gorgeous boots with namaste. I've got lots of fares, teeth sharp teeth around my neck, and a horn on my head. Like you did. And of course, I think my little I carry around the caves as well to guide me. Which does look plastic, I should say. Yeah. It's real for the children of course. Yeah, it is made out of 5 again. Yeah. It's stress that point at this point. Tell me, tell me why what are you doing within the cave? How you've kept going, during this time? What would that was like? Yeah, so it's been really hard, obviously, because we were closed for ten months. So that was really hard. But you know, I think like everybody in the pandemic, it makes you focus. And, you know, the caves are all about education. It's all about future generations. And we really, really want to keep these caves open for everybody to come in and enjoy. It's an amazing attraction and as well. When people come into the caves, a lot of people say that they've never been in a cave before. So to have that experience is very important. And of course, being paid for men, you know, and I can actually look the children in the eye and say I am a true life came woman. A 105 hours. Yeah, that will qualify you. Absolutely. So it's just nice to teach them about this subterranean world about all the wonderful sleeping cats, the organs, the wedding cake. Everything that's carved out by nature, it's a natural wonder. And, you know, it's a national treasure, so it's wonderful to have schools and children come in. And I play lots of games with the kids and teach them about this limestone that is older than the dinosaurs and give them fossils and things to take away with them, which to get really giddy about the very excited. What was actually like sleeping in there, 'cause I'm just also where I can see peering into our video call here that I could see quite a bit of dripping going on. Yeah, it was really noisy. And really surreal. It's a unique experience, definitely. But it felt cold damp. It's a constant 7°. Lots of dripping water in the dipping water falls on different things that you get the dripping water falling on The Rock and it falls in the puddles. And it seems to amplify it all with the acoustics of the caves. You get different sounds, but there seem to travel for a long way. But everything was unpleasantly dumb. And but there was a lot of serenity and calmness about it as well. It was really weird. But the thing that was the hardest thing was not seeing daylight. Yes. Well you know, not having a window to the outside world can sometimes leave you feeling a little bit disconnected. What when you're not trying to of course raise the profile of the caves and being down there the entire time when you're normally in your own abode and in your home with windows. But what is it about the cave that you love and being in that environment? Because, you know, you bought this with your husband, I believe. Did you used to work as a nurse? Yes. So I did 25 years of children's third thing, which is, you know, I absolutely love children. And I think it is all about the future generations and education. And it's fun learning, isn't it? It's lovely. But the thing that I love about it is the fact that, you know, it's unique. It's people come because it's curiosity, isn't it? And it's a real important tool for educating. When we have the first school back after lockdown, when we didn't even know whether we'd be able to reopen the caves. I actually cried when the first school came down the steps because I thought this is what they need to see. Everybody needs the opportunity to see it. You know, imagine living here and not being able to share it, you know, that is why I became a crazy kid. You know, and was so passionate about keeping this place open because it's something that needs to be shared. It's not to be, you know, cats away from people and locked away. And I know that you've been doing this with your husband as well. Did he did he bed down for the same amount of time? He did. He did. Absolutely. And the thing is, like, Nick does not like how he doesn't like dump. He doesn't like what it sounds like. I would hate this. Yeah, no, he absolutely did hate it. And he really struggled with it. And he spent two days warming up. But he did it because he said, I can't let you go down there on your own. And I was so grateful that he did to it, because the reason that we did a 105 hours is because Jeff worked and came down for a 105 days in 1963. He was a rocket scientist and he wanted to know how his mind and body clock would work in complete isolation. And he died last year at 91. And to be absolutely adored, Jeff. So it was a testament to him as well. And all the kids loved to hear about Jeff, you know, and his.
