Morning Money: An unhappy ending for Disney COO
Well it wasn't quite the fairytale succession everyone expected, as the man being groomed to become the next boss of Disney says he'll be stepping down next month. Tom Staggs had been seen as the heir apparent to replace Bob Iger, who retires in 2018, but has reportedly quit his post because he was not guaranteed the chief executive role. To discuss this, film industry expert Terry Ilott joined Nigel Cassidy and Sara Sjölin.

The Book Review: Lord David Owen’s ‘The UK’s In Out Referendum: EU Foreign & Defence Policy Reform’ & ‘Europe Restructured: Vote to Leave’

The Book Review: Lord David Owen’s ‘The UK’s In Out Referendum: EU Foreign & Defence Policy Reform’ & ‘Europe Restructured: Vote to Leave’
The decision on whether the UK stays inside the European Union in the upcoming referendum, could depend on whether a large number of young people turn out to vote. An online survey by "Opinium" - on behalf of "The Observer" newspaper - found that 43% of those questioned wanted Britain to leave Europe while 39% wanted the country to stay in. The results may be a setback for pro-Europe campaigners but for those on the opposite side of the fence, it's further proof that Britain is capable of functioning outside the EU. David Owen is a former Foreign Secretary who from 1992 to 1995 also served as EU peace negotiator in the former Yugoslavia. He's also the author of the pamphlet "The UK's In Out Referendum: EU Foreign & Defence Policy Reform". Earlier he came into the studio and he gave Investment Perspectives presenter Juliette Foster his reaction to that survey.
