Is the decision to halt the motorway disruption a recognition of the impact on people - such as the man who missed his father's funeral because of the protests?
@MishalHusain speaks to Just Stop Oil's Emma Brown.
This has been the view on the way to work every day for the last few years. Today we're assembling the last episode of the #Grenfell Tower Inquiry Podcast to cover the hearings, which concluded yesterday with an excoriating summary by lead counsel Richard Millett KC.
"We have not sped up enough"
Ahead of the COP27 climate talks, UN Special Envoy on Climate Action & Finance Mark Carney tells @MishalHusain "there's still a gap in terms of government policy in this country and what our objectives are".
British-Egyptian writer and activist Alaa Abdel Fattah is on hunger strike in prison in Egypt. Campaigners are hoping the spotlight on COP27 will help free him and others.
Actor Khalid Abdalla tells @MishalHusain that PM Rishi Sunak must take concrete action to bring Alaa home.
Nobel literature laureates are asking leaders going to COP to use their addresses ‘to speak the names of the imprisoned, to call for their freedom, and to invite Egypt to turn a page and become a true partner in a different future: a future that respects human life and dignity’ twitter.com/asoueif/status…

"Changing the leadership would be a disastrously bad idea, not just politically but economically"
Foreign Secretary James Cleverly tells @MishalHusain the government recognises it needs to bring certainty to the markets, and defends its growth plans.
Why have government interventions resulted in such a shock to investor confidence? @MishalHusain asks Jacob Rees-Mogg.
"It's primarily caused by interest rate differentials rather than the fiscal announcement" the Business Secretary replies.

Here's why the Bank of England's intervention this morning is concerning. About a quarter of the sum the government's 'borrowed' is by selling index linked gilts -IOU notes where the government promises to pay investors interest linked to inflation (RPI). Or £500billion.
A bleak day for all of us who were lucky enough to work with Raeph (he filmed and edited my WW2/Indian Army piece in 2020) and admire his work with others. A supremely skilled, imaginative, thoughtful and generous colleague. To Raeph’s family - deepest sympathies. twitter.com/TonyNewsCamera…
Thanks for this support - and to all those who have rejected baseless allegations about my journalism. In the end journalism is about getting to the truth. In wars that requires sharing some of the dangers of the people caught up in appalling circumstances. twitter.com/AJFichera/stat…

Since the pandemic there has been a shortage of guide dogs because breeding was paused.
"There needs to be a rethink and that will be a very difficult conversation"
Conservative MP and Chair of the Treasury Select Committee Mel Stride tells @MishalHusain the government's current plans without a forecast "don't stack up fiscally"

What is happening is frightening for many people - are things going to plan? @MishalHusain asks Chris Philp, the Chancellor's deputy.
"If intervention is needed to protect their family's finances, the government & Bank of England will intervene."
Those on £20,000 a year will get an extra £1.79 a week from the National Insurance cut today.
Will that really unleash that person's spending power, @MishalHusain asks Levelling Up Secretary Simon Clarke.
