9:01 pm
country and we need investment in education the giant precondition that determines whether you have the freedom and confidence to make the most of your talent. so this government will give every child the world class education they deserve we're leveling up across the country investing in extra $14000000000.00 over 3 years and increasing the minimum level of funding for every pupil in primary and secondary schools by backing the teachers who change our lives we're putting up salaries for new teachers funding pension increases and giving teachers the backing they need to deal with disruptive pupils we cannot afford any longer the chronic underfunding of our brilliant effete colleges which do so much to support young people skills and our economy and it's i think it's absurd that employers have been driven to import so much skilled labor in from abroad in large part because of the
9:02 pm
vocational fate of failures of vocational training in our own country we have a world class universities sector we should be very very very proud of it but it's time we aspired to the same status for our further education institutions to give everyone the opportunity to express their talents and of course education is not enough on its own you need to be able to connect with other people to get that job interview to find that customer and so we in this new government are supporting gigabit broadband gigabit broadband which is a lot i understand gigabit broadband for every home by 20258 years earlier than previously promised and they can do it in spain if they can do it in spain why can't we do it in the u.k. and we have a new stronger town from 3600000000 pound stronger town fund so that local people

9:05 pm
to drive big infrastructure projects to boost investment to wave the flag for the area to act as a local champion and say come and invest here but of course along with that power comes responsibility and accountability and it's time we gave more people a say over the places where they live we're going to do the evolution properly we're going to maximize the power of the north with more mayors across the whole of the north and i know there's a real enthusiasm for devolution in yorkshire and i welcome the establishment of a yorkshire committee as a practical step for facilitating greater collaboration on a yorkshire wide basis in the meantime we are committed to getting the city the sheffield city region done and i also want to open up negotiations with leeds and
9:06 pm
west yorkshire so we can make a mayor work that to whatever the nature of any longer term arrangements in yorkshire. but i also want to build on the fantastic job so many mayors are already doing and ensure you can deliver on ambitious commitments to your communities and that will mean leveling up powers for existing mayors and to make sure our great northern powerhouse is fiery on all its cylinders to champion investment and opportunity we're going to work with leaders across the north the mayors local businesses and updates to create a new stronger northern powerhouse growth body it will be a genuine partnership across the region british prime minister morris johnson speaking their convention of the north addressing political and business leaders there about his plans to invest in the u.k.

9:09 pm
cheek to come here and tell us that austerity is over that will leave the interview and everything will be ok and of course that is essentially what he's saying we will pour investment into these areas in the north we will take you out of the european union and everything will be ok and just a few minutes ago as he continued speaking as he continues speaking a few moments ago he was heckled inside that venue by somebody who said what about our in peace boris why aren't you in parliament with them trying to sort this mess out. and looking for a friendly audience to the north of in the not necessarily getting off all right for the moment john howell live for us there in london. well to other stories now in a massive strike has brought much of paris's public transport to a whole to unions protest against pension reforms 10 of the 16 metro lines are closed while buses and trams have also been affected have been long traffic jams in and around the city and people have been asked to work from home if possible

9:15 pm
country's main opposition figure alexina found it was searched and employees detained like here in st petersburg and you've got to remember documents and a u.s.b. drive for confiscated this was when you were supposed to get my daughter called me and said the police came to search the apartment and actually they cheated their way into the apartment because she opened the door for a neighbor to now found the it is clear the razor president put in 3 french for the loss of the ruling party in sunday's elections but that's what you see last also in the in the moguls this time he got all right back now to rather me in northern britain where the prime minister of course johnson is taking questions now from journalists and election sounds like election promises and election saw you can't get election and you can't get at the moment how you can achieve that well we are.
9:16 pm
we are going to i certainly won't be deterred by anybody from our goal of coming out of the e.u. october 31st which i think most people this country want us to do and they want us to get breaks done i believe they do. but i also won't be deterred from getting on with our domestic agenda and i think the people in this country also want to hear yes it is absolutely true that the opposition parties don't particularly want to have election nor do they want to deliver bracks and i have to face that that reality at the present but what people want is to hear how we're going to get on and deliver on their priorities and that is what we're going to do so i think it's entirely relevant to come not just to the north but to all parts of the country and say how we're going to deliver $20000.00 more police on the streets and what we're doing to invest in our hospitals and yes i'm a passionate believer. in devolution and in giving power to strong local
9:17 pm
leaders to champion their areas and to be accountable for their transport networks was that i think will produce better results for the people of this country so whatever the shenanigans that may be going on at westminster we will get on with delivering our agenda and preparing to take this country out of the e.u. on october 31st and there will be ample time for parliament to consider. the deal that i very much hope to do at the e.u. summit on october 17th and 18th and there will be ample time as the gentleman i think was that was the gentleman who is who who left prematurely not necessarily under his or under his own steam. that that is the answer to his question there you know. we've lost in this to have a queen's speech and to set out our domestic agenda i think people realize we've lost about 4 days of parliamentary sitting time there is ample time for parliament
9:18 pm
to consider not just breaks it but all kinds of things both before and after the european council before toba the 17th or less let's get on do it thank you prime minister i think we can hear from joe pike from i.t.v. yorkshire now thank you prime minister if you really do believe that domestic abuse shatters lives why have you to late the domestic abuse bill by not carrying over when parliament perrotte and can you promise the campaign. whose fought so hard on this that the same bill at the she fought for you will bring in front of yes i can i mean the view of the bill. the bill is going to i think i said yesterday or possibly the day before that the bill is certainly going to be carried over the domestic abuse bill warbles will be right there in the queen's speech along with many other members. thank you david park of the advertising.
9:19 pm
welcome to rather in prime minister. clearly a few months ago you said in a radio and. lots of local police forces. especially money of the war has us and you still believe. if i stick ations of history c.s.e. . well i that's actually not what i said but what i certainly can say is i think all such. investigations of certainly here are extremely important but the point i was i was making is that we do need to be backing our police to be fighting crime and that's why we're investing in 20000 police out on the streets and putting about a 1000000000 more into policing and i'd just for ease of reference like i need is the sort of ripple of of support for the idea of staying in the e.u. beyond october the 31st just to remind you folks in case you think really think
9:20 pm
that's a good idea it involves spending another 1000000000 pounds a month of taxpayers' money to stay in the e.u. i frankly rather spend a 1000000000 pounds of taxpayers' money or 20000 police officers on the streets that's that's my judgment but anyway with the if the opposition have a different view why didn't they put it to the people that david walsh i think from the sheffield star welcome prime minister sheffield business and arts leaders have today launched a culture collective to improve the city's cultural offer and help grow the economy in the shifa stop they agree sheffield has been underfunded compared to comparable cities is it something you will support with funding. well i i'll be brief just 3600000000 into a into a tons of fun and. i don't think this is very shameful can't qualifies for
9:21 pm
just just to say that we're you know where spending less spending where spending huge sums. today and i don't i i don't miss is i don't want to make another spending commitment at the moment but i will certainly happily study the request of the be made if if if if there is any way that we can support the culture. that you describe then i will certainly make sure that we do i'm reluctant to make more extemporaneous spending commitments from this platform. u.k. prime minister boris johnson there taking questions from journalists in a rather room at the convention of the north after he addressed politicians and business leaders there about his plans to invest in the u.k. economy and deliver. come what may well that's a no deal or renegotiated
9:22 pm
a deal with the european union which is what he's been trying to broker and he'll be meeting with the e.u. leaders on monday jonah how is life for us in london and germany prime minister there took a number of questions mostly on domestic policy but if i'm not mistaking you to each one question of the beginning in which he was asked about. how he plans to get out of this box that he seemed seemingly created as far as getting a break that deal through but he appeared to sidestep that and said that there were as well that there will be ample time for m.p.'s to consider bragg's it even in the 2nd half of october once parliament returns to session. yes yes an overwhelmingly local focused speech this is you say has i'm part of or is johnson sort of unofficial election campaign once more finding him self in a labor leave voting constituency in the north of england and really fair to say
9:23 pm
not the friendliest of crowds as you rightly said the 1st question i asked to him was about directed and about the election everyone knows one is coming nobody seems to know when or nobody can tell the question was how you can do breakfast and how are you going to get an election and he said. that we won't be deterred from our goal of taking britain out of the e.u. on october the 31st nor will we be deterred from our goal of setting out a sound and solid domestic agenda he had to touch on the pro gay sion of parliament m.p.'s suspended of course at his behest there was a heckler earlier who said why aren't you there in parliament sorting out this mess . and doing his best there to sort of set out well as best as he knows what might happen a deal potentially on october the 17th and 18th that that is some it will be plenty of time he says for m.p.'s to discuss it of course m.p.'s many of them would differ
9:24 pm
with that and then we'll get out on october 31st what he doesn't touch on the top is the fact that there is a law in place now passed by parliament just before it was prorogue that requires him in the absence of a deal to go and ask for an extension and frankly whilst there are moves towards trying to get a deal and mr johnston says that's very much his preference and there are discussions taking place there's nothing on paper and no evidence that the european union is ready to budge to move its lines and meet mr johnson somewhere in the middle quite what happens i think is in an entirely open question now still when will there be an election we don't know he doesn't know will we be out the u.k. on october 31st we don't know he doesn't know nor frankly does the audience of rather him you have asthma is there anything that brings you these days it is really anybody's guess what does happen from here on the last more reaction on this set to come no doubt for the moment said john how life for us there in london. well
9:25 pm
coming up in the news ahead. you got a lot more confidence in corporate america. as white house hopefuls. face off in another televised debate.

9:29 pm
you've got a lot more confidence in corporate america than i do let us be clear joe in the united states of america we are spending twice as much per capita on health care it's the canadians or any other major country on earth. former cabinet secretary who leon castro produced gas from the audience when he seemed to question the 76 year old biden's memory by and holler fire you know you forgetting what you said it matters who paid for. already what you said just 2 minutes ago amid the bickering senator cory booker appealed for unity we've got one shot to make donald trump a one term president and we cannot lose it by the way we talk about each other or demonize and degrade each other we can walk and chew gum at the same time the candidates were united in denouncing president trump for inflaming racial tensions

9:33 pm
can retire at $55.00 including some transport jobs medal marcos says the system needs to be streamlined and needs to be standardized and also it's costing a lot to the french state so you want to try and make it more sustainable in the future but the work has a saying that they're very worried that their pension rights in the future are going to be eroded or that they're going to be forced to work longer there's no doubt though for money markets can be very difficult to push through this reform previous presidents of tried to change the system but they have failed because of street protests and for macro it's also something of a personal challenge she's had a difficult year because of the yellow vests a protest movement a lot of anger directed against him but opinion polls suggest the recently his popularity has gone up a little bit he's doing better the economy is turning around so people are very careful not to be treading very carefully to make sure that he doesn't face a new wave of street demonstrations. by antigovernment protesters are gathering up
