Downing Street has been unable to say how the full £200m cost of Boris Johnson’s controversial royal yacht will be met amid reports the Treasury does not want to foot the bill.On Monday, the prime minister’s official spokesperson said the successor to the Royal Yacht Britannia would be paid for out of the defence budget despite it being a trade vessel and not a warship.But with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) facing a funding black hole of £17bn, the spokesperson on Tuesday could only say the department would meet the “initial cost”.It follows a Sunday Times report on a “huge row” within government over who will pay for the flagship, which the prime minister committed to following a sustained campaign from Brexit-backing newspapers.No.10 was unable to say what the “initial cost” being paid by the MoD would amount to, and could not guarantee that the boat would be fully taxpayer funded.Questions over funding for the yacht comes amid wider suggestions of tension between chancellor Rishi Sunak and Johnson, with the Treasury reportedly concerned about the PM making unfunded spending pledges.Health secretary Matt Hancock insisted on Tuesday the flagship will “pay for itself many, many times over”.Asked what evidence that was based on, the PM’s spokesperson said: “Well, he was simply referring to the fact that this is a ship that will promote UK trade and drive investment back into our country, so we expect any costs of building and operating the ship will be outweighed by the economic benefits it brings over its 30-year lifespan.”The spokesperson was also unable to say whether any business groups or exporter organisations had called for a trade yacht.They rejected the suggestion made by former chancellor Ken Clarke that the new yacht was “silly populist nonsense”."We've no money for that kind of thing"Former Chancellor Ken Clarke on why he thinks the government's planned national yacht is "populist nonsense" - and what the economy does need #R4Todaypic.twitter.com/RkwKeC6iWm— BBC Radio 4 Today (@BBCr4today) June 22, 2021The spokesperson said: “Obviously we totally reject that, the new national flagship will boost British trade and drive investment into our economy. “It will be used to host high-level trade negotiations, for trade shows, and will sail all over the world promoting British interests.”Asked whether there were better things to be spending money on, the spokesman said: “We are investing a great deal of money into the country on a number of issues important to the public, be it our NHS or policing.”Recent polling has indicated that a majority of the public are against spending money on a new trade ship.A YouGov survey in April found that 51% of people questioned were opposed to replacing the Britannia with an updated vessel, with only 25% in favour.Similarly, 57% said spending on a new vessel could not be justified, versus 26% who thought it could be.The vessel will be used to host trade fairs, ministerial summits and diplomatic talks as the UK seeks to build links and boost exports following Brexit.It will be the first national flagship since Britannia, which was decommissioned in 1997, but the new vessel will be a ship rather than a luxury yacht.Related...‘Anti-Woke Agenda’ Helping Tories Hang On To Leave Voters, Expert SaysLabour Demands Date For Rishi Sunak's Net Zero Climate ReportJenny Chapman Leaves Job As Keir Starmer's Top Adviser

GB News host Gloria de Piero has set the record straight after being accused of giving a double middle-finger during a live broadcast on Thursday.The most recent instalment of GB News’ lunchtime show began with one of what have already become GB News’ trademark technical hitches.Gloria’s co-host Liam Halligan was seen speaking with his microphone apparently switched off, while the former Labour MP next to him delivered a confusing hand gesture, before abruptly questioning: “Should the Famous Five be cancelled?”A tweet then went viral suggesting that the host was flipping a double bird to the camera before beginning the broadcast:Not even ten seconds into the 12 o clock show and the presenter just gave two middle fingers to the camera live on air! pic.twitter.com/gUc1EdlqQo— Soundchester UK (@SoundchesterUK) June 17, 2021However, she then insisted live on air that this was not the case.Addressing GB News viewers – in a speech that was later tweeted on the station’s official Twitter account – she clarified: “This is me crossing my fingers about whether we can go on summer holiday. Somebody screengrabbed it and said that I was sticking two fingers up… oh, it looks like I’m doing it again.“We’re all – the nation is crossing their fingers.”“Are you watching?” Liam then added. “We’re crossing our fingers.”"We just want to make something clear, this is Gloria de Piero crossing her fingers for summer holidays... the nation is crossing their fingers" pic.twitter.com/N4ojHt3lTr— GB News (@GBNEWS) June 17, 2021To say GB News has been off to a shaky start since its launch on Sunday would be something of an understatement, with technical issues, Ofcom complaints and mortifying on-screen pranks from viewers all making headlines in the past few days.On Wednesday, presenter Simon McCoy urged those texting in with names like “Mike Hunt” and “Mike Oxlong” to “grow up” – but it didn’t have the effect he wanted, as Dan Wootton found out when a comedian managed to get his video message played live on air, complete with a discreet flash of his bare behind.READ MORE:GB News Host Simon McCoy Addresses 'Idiot' Trolls Texting In To Prank Presenters: 'Grow Up'GB News Pranked Again As Comedian Flashes His Bum During Live Video Call With Laurence FoxBig-Name Brands Pull Advertising From GB News After Three Days On The Air

Theresa May has attacked Boris Johnson’s cut to overseas aid spending. The Tory former PM said the spending cut would damage the UK’s global reputation and make it more difficult to achieve a deal at the Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow this year.Johnson is refusing to give MPs a vote on his decision to slash aid spending from the legally mandated 0.7% of national income to 0.5%, with Tory rebels believing they have a clear majority to reverse the cut.The prime minister has also rejected pleas from Commons Speaker Lindsay Hoyle to allow MPs to vote on the decision.In an emergency debate on Tuesday just two days before the G7 summit of world leaders, Tory rebels criticised the government over the cut and how it has handled the row.May said the global fund to end modern slavery, an issue key to her prime ministerial legacy, was having its funding cut by 80% as a result of the government’s policy.She also argued that slashing spending would run counter to Britain’s interests and “have a devastating impact on the poorest in the world and it will damage the UK”.On the impact on the UK’s world standing, she said: “They (people) listen to us because of what we do, they listen to us because of how we put our values into practice.“The damage it does to our reputation means that it will be far harder for us as a country to argue for change that we want internationally, that is across the board, including at Cop26 and also including setting out and putting into place the ambitions of the integrated review.“I only hope that modern slavery is still there on the G7 agenda as it has been in the past.” What the government is doing is unethical, possibly illegal, and certainly breaks our promise Former international development secretary Andrew Mitchell, who is leading the rebellion, told MPs the aid spending cut was an “unethical and unlawful betrayal”.He said: “The way the government is behaving strikes at the heart of our parliament. “It is precisely because the government fears they would lose that they are not calling one (a vote). That is not democracy. “I want to argue to the House this afternoon that what the government is doing is unethical, possibly illegal, and certainly breaks our promise. “It’s not proper and it’s fundamentally un-British and we shouldn’t behave in this way.” Mitchell also repeated his insistence that trying to win favour in so-called “red wall” working class areas by cutting overseas aid spending was “very patronising” to those voters. The cut also breaks a pledge to keep the 0.7% target in the 2019 Tory general election manifesto, which helped propel Johnson to an 80-seat parliamentary majority.“All 650 of us in this House elected at the last election promised to stand by the 0.7%,” Mitchell said.Responding for the government, Treasury minister Steve Barclay said the cuts were needed given the huge scale of government borrowing to pay for Covid support measures such as the furlough scheme.He questioned how the rebels proposed raising the £4.3bn required to reverse the cut.“Leaving the next generation vulnerable to the degree of fiscal threat that would be entailed with a high debt level is not itself morally sound,” Barclay said.“At the same time, loading ourselves with more debt now might well damage our ability to spend on aid later.”Related...Boris Johnson Will Not Give MPs A Vote On Overseas Aid Cut, No.10 SaysBoris Johnson Dodges Vote On Planned Cuts To Overseas AidMichael Gove Would 'Bet' On June 21 Relaxation Of Covid Rules
