David Davis: Brexit? What on earth could go wrong?

The one thing we can't have happen is for Parliament to reverse the result of the Referendum

– David Davis MP

After Theresa May warned fellow EU nations she would rather walk away from Brexit than accept a "punitive" deal we were joined this morning by Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, David Davis MP.

As the Prime Minister gets ready to face questions from MPs over the UK's exit from the EU today we questioned Davis about the process going forward and what it could mean for immigration.

And despite the obstacles and friction surrounding Brexit, he seems very confident about it being a success, asking us: "Why on earth could it go wrong?"

Should buggies make way for wheelchairs on the bus?

Should a mum with a buggy be made to get off a bus to make room for someone in a wheelchair? This is the question we're debating as the Supreme Court rules today whether the disabled should be legally entitled to priority use of wheelchair spaces.

The case was triggered when wheelchair user Doug Paulley, from Wetherby, West Yorkshire, attempted to board a bus operated by FirstGroup which had a sign saying: ''Please give up this space if needed for a wheelchair user.''

Mr Paulley ended up left at the stop because a woman with a sleeping baby in a pushchair refused to move out of the designated area when asked by the bus driver, saying the buggy would not fold. It's the first time the Supreme Court has considered a discrimination case relating to provision of goods and services.

Top five headlines you're waking up to

  1. President Obama has commuted the 35-year sentence of Chelsea Manning, the soldier jailed for leaking information to Wikileaks. It is expected that the former Army intelligence analyst who leaked thousands of documents to Wikileaks, will now be out in May.

  2. Theresa May has warned fellow EU nations she is ready to walk away from Brexit talks rather than accept a "punitive" deal. In a speech setting out her 12 key objectives for EU withdrawal, Mrs May announced Britain will leave the European single market but will seek a "bold and ambitious" free trade agreement to allow it to continue doing business with its 27 former partners without having to pay "huge sums" into EU budgets.

  3. The Supreme Court will rule on Wednesday on whether disabled travellers are legally entitled to priority use of wheelchair spaces on buses - even when there are babies in buggies on board. The case was triggered when wheelchair user Doug Paulley was left at a stop because a woman with a sleeping baby in a pushchair refused to move out of the designated area when asked by the bus driver, saying the buggy would not fold.

  4. Thousands of people who are helping to bring up their grandchildren could be missing out on valuable credits which would help to build up their pension, research has found. A Freedom of Information request submitted to HMRC by Royal London found only a low number of applications had been made for grandparents' credit.

  5. Donald Trump will become president on Friday with an approval rating of just 40 per cent, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll. This is the lowest of any recent president - and 44 points below that of outgoing President Barack Obama.

Should bosses be tracking their staff's every move?

Bosses are spying on staff using a Big Brother-style tracker to monitor their every move.

The high-tech device records sleep patterns, fitness, productivity and can even analyse emotions.

We spoke to recruitment agency boss Jane Vincent who used the tracking system and saw productivity levels rise and said it enabled her to pay staff correctly.

However, winner of the first series of The Apprentice Tim Campbell MBE disagrees and says it's a bad idea.

– Nadia Mendoza

More than a third of 11 to 16 year olds are willing to do "whatever it takes" to look good, including cosmetic surgery and crash diets.

What's more, new research has found youngsters often isolate themselves because of body image anxiety.

Nadia Mendoza, Digital Showbiz Editor at the Daily Star and member of the Self Esteem Team, wants to raise awareness of the issue and get more people to educate children about body image.

Top five headlines you're waking up to

  1. Theresa May prepares for one of her most important speeches since she became Prime Minister. It follows growing pressure to reveal her Brexit plans, but risks exposing deep splits in the Conservative party. On the show we’re joined by Iain Duncan Smith and Chuka Umunna to discuss further.

  2. Are children too concerned about their body image? Almost a third of 11 to 16 year olds isolate themselves because of body image anxiety according to a YMCA report. Researchers spoke to more than 2,000 secondary school pupils aged 11 to 16 years old and found that more than a third (36%) were willing to do whatever it takes to look good and that nearly two thirds (63%) said what other people think of their looks is important to them.

  3. The increasing pressures on the NHS could result in a rise in dangerous births. Low staffing levels mean that half of women (50%) experience at least one red-flag event during childbirth, according to a new report from the National Federation of Womens Institutes (NFWI) and NCT today. According to The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), red flag events are signs that there may not be enough midwives available to give women and babies the care they need, for example, having to wait more than 30 minutes to get pain relief or over an hour to be given stitches.

  4. School breakfast clubs are becoming increasingly important to parents working patterns . A third of working mums believe they would have to give up work if it wasn't for school breakfast clubs. A fifth of working parents admit to never sitting down and eating breakfast with their children. The Parents Lifeline Study revealed that more than a quarter (27%) of parents feel the absence of a breakfast club would mean at least one parent would be forced out of work, with more mums (33%) than dads bearing this burden.

  5. Are our bosses spying on us? Employers across Britain and North America are fitting their staff with wearable tracker devices to monitor their fitness, productivity and stress levels 24 hours a day. At least four companies - including a major bank and part of the NHS - are using 'sociometric badges' to measure the conditions of their staff.

He had very warm words for [Theresa May] and Britain generally

Michael Gove joined us this morning fresh from his interview with President-elect Donald Trump to tell us what the controversial man is really like.
