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.
