Night talk - Mitch Harris opening comments, Wednesday 11th July 2018.

Tonight: how long do you think you could get away with being absent from work while still getting paid?

Mitch is asking the question because of a bizarre story in the news today.

Carles Recio, a civil servant in Valencia, Spain, has been absent from his from €50,000-a-year job for more than a decade - and now he's been fired.

But Recio has offered multiple explanations for his absence, even going as far as saying he "works like a slave" when he is out of the office.
