tv The Papers BBC News May 10, 2017 10:45pm-11:00pm BST
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are kate devlin, political correspondent at the herald and martin bentham, home affairs editor at the london evening standard. tomorrow's front pages, starting with. .. the financial times leads with president trump's calls for warmer us relations with russia. the metro opens with one mother's warning to bosses at drayton manor four years ago — saying the ride where an 11—year—old girl was killed yesterday was dangerous. the daily telegraph says it has a copy of the labour party's manifesto — and claims jeremy corbyn is planning to re—nationalise energy firms, the railways and royal mail. the daily mirror also claims to have had access to the labour manifesto. the i says the uk is facing a huge rise in stroke cases. the daily express says a heatwave is about to hit the uk. and they say it means britain is heading for a drought. the times talks about a spat between the chancellor philip hammond
and theresa may's aides. and the daily mail describes the leaked labour manifesto as the most left—wing in decades. right, let's start. martin, would you set us up? jeremy corbyn, the ma nifesto you set us up? jeremy corbyn, the manifesto seems to have been exclusively in several papers, which i know it's a bit strange. let's start with the daily mirror headline, which says it pretty well. it does. it leads into a peek inside spread as well, detailing this lea ked spread as well, detailing this leaked draft, setting out a very extensive range of policies which the mirror builds very favourably, the mirror builds very favourably, the other papers we will come to our obviously much less favourable. this says he will fix rip—off britain, boost nhs schools and scrap tuition fees. talking about how power and the railways will be renationalised and other policies including abolishing tuition fees. there is an
extensive list and inside they say that labour have pledged to undo the damage of seven years of tory austerities, describing it as the bullet of red—blooded socialism and then there is a note saying that tories are rotten to the core, pages six and seven. it is the favourable look at what is a very extensive ma nifesto, look at what is a very extensive manifesto, by the looks of things, which all sorts of people will like and others will not. kate, there is loads of it, particularly within the inside of the mirror, and you can pick out whatever makes you happy or ci’oss pick out whatever makes you happy or cross really, can't you? i think some of it is what has been missing from labour's campaign so far. some of the things they have announced that not really been that different from what ed miliband announced basically in the 2015 manifesto, so the question was kind of becoming,
what is the point of a veteran socialist taking over the labour party if he's not going to have some socialist policies? which of the things we do say speak to that?” think certainly renationalisation is something that ed miliband never wanted to go towards. scrapping of tuition fees is not something you could have seen in the 2015 manifesto. and of course people will say, and how will you pay for it mr corbyn? there is quite a lot of detail about that as well? it's mainly pre—things like raising corporation tax, which the tories claim has been spent several times over and the labour party say is fully costed. there is some support for that run the institute for fiscal studies who say that theoretically at least it is paid for, albeit with the risk that corporation tax increases release in lower corporation tax receipts in the long run. because companies find other ways of doing things. because
actually we have record corporation tax income last year despite corporation tax having gone down. if you ask for public opinion, surveys, things like we nationalising the railways, although it is quite a left—wing thing to do, it tends to get very high approval ratings in public approval ratings. if we look at the daily telegraph, same story but the difference lance. corbyn ‘s ma nifesto but the difference lance. corbyn ‘s manifesto will take britain back to the 1970s, amongst other things they have highlighted, trade unions to be welcomed into the number ten fold. they are also highlighting a pay cap, which they say would also bring us cap, which they say would also bring us back to the 19705. very interestingly, there is detail on what will be a row in labour about defence and it looks like it is the kind of outcome very ten5e negotiations. 0bviou5ly jeremy
corbyn ha5 negotiations. 0bviou5ly jeremy corbyn has long been on the record of being again5t corbyn has long been on the record of being against the nuclear deterrent, will commit to renewal, which of course is already happening, but it will have a cautiou5 u5e caveat, a5 happening, but it will have a cautiou5 u5e caveat, as it were. it 5how5 cautiou5 u5e caveat, as it were. it shows the tensions within his own party, even with this kind of manifesto. i like the daily mail front page - could have had front page which could have had their headline written by the same sub editor at the daily telegraph. that is one of the problems. i was thinking when i looked at this bat may be the 1970s weren't so bad. we had scorching summers, leaves united won the football, but had scorching summers, leaves united won the fo( there bus; had scorching summers, leaves united won the fo( there is s; had scorching summers, leaves united woi here fo( there is s; had scorching summers, leaves united woi here fo( there is assumingi
had scorching summers, leaves united w spotefot there is assumingi is and danger of such them and that's the danger of such a long, you know, the longest suicide note in history. the more you set out the more things there are to be a hostage to fortune potholes to be picked in all for people to say, i don't like it. there are some policie5 don't like it. there are some policies that you - 5ee ed iri ,- tait! pit paternity a pit paternity- a month would pit paternity leave a month and pay for it. it was said about the last one that there was a policie5 —— there were policie5 the last one that there was a policie5 —— there were policies that did not add up to a call. they said,
vote labour, win a microwave, but that could be indicated again. labour party 5ay that could be indicated again. labour party say they do not comment on leaked article5 labour party say they do not comment on leaked articles and the tories —— the conservative party has said this i5... the article is suggesting that philip hammond have infuriated theresa may's aids by forcing her not to commit to the promise that the tories had at the last election of not raising vat and national insurance, which rather pinned them m, insurance, which rather pinned them in, and going back to the budget
u—turn, which was forced on the chancellor when he had to scrap the national insurance rise, so i suppose the question with this is, does it amount to anything public facing, ultimately, because of course if a party is riven by divisions or, as the party would say with labour, a chaotic lack of clarity as to what the party is standing for and so on, that becomes a problem. if it isjust behind—the—scenes fiction... a problem. if it isjust behind-the-scenes fiction... we are in the middle of a campaign about lots of other things? we are certainly not in blair — brown territory here. it is not unleashing the forces from next door quite yet but i think ten5ion5 the forces from next door quite yet but i think tensions between the prime minister and the chancellor are always interesting, are always important, but given the brexit negotiations were going to have to face them in next two years, one would suggest it is incredibly important at this stage. the tories have very united front, don't they,
in the election campaign, so if that in any way or form disintegrated, that would be damaging to them. at the moment, there is not a great deal of sign of that. let's go on to the story dominating on the other side of the atlantic. the financial times has this line about defined trump calls for closer moscow ties after firing the fbi trump calls for closer moscow ties afterfiring the fbi chief. i don't think we need to go into the ramifications forjames comey, but it is interesting that sergey lavrov was meeting donald trump. it is interesting that sergey lavrov was meeting donald trumpm it is interesting that sergey lavrov was meeting donald trump. it is not often i would say this but i think the ft have nail beds. the first word is unabashed. failing —— firing his fbi chief has unleashed a storm against him. accusations that he has done itjust against him. accusations that he has done it just because against him. accusations that he has done itjust because the fbi were investigating allegations of legs between him and russia, so what does he do? he calls for warmer links
with russia. it's the kind of plastic trump move. the question is, i was going to say finally, but we have to remember we are illegal month into his presidency. as he underestimated the storm gathering against him, because now people are calling not just against him, because now people are calling notjust for against him, because now people are calling not just for an against him, because now people are calling notjust for an fbi investigation but for a special investigation but for a special investigation into these allegations. the president said i think with some justification that the democrats wanted this man's head two days ago but now, look at them, they are squealing and complaining. it is washington politics at its most raw and fascinating, isn't it? it is true that the democrats were hostile towards james comey prior to the us election and his actions over hillary clinton. it still is a very disturbing way in which he has done this, just do basically humiliate
him, to be frank, the fbi chief. and also, if it was driven by what people suspect, that he was disliking the fact he was being investigated himself, but also, i mean, thank goodness the us has got a very healthy, robust congress and a very healthy, robust congress and a lot of people there willing to stand up and fight against this type of thing, because otherwise it is quite damaging and dangerous rate to down. but of course one of the in5titution5 down. but of course one of the institutions has to be upholding the fbi. i'm afraid we have to leave it there, sadly. kate and martin, thank you very much indeed. that is it from the papers this evening. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers on the bbc news website, therefore you 2a hours a day, seven days a week. if you missed the programme, you can watch it later be bbc i play. we promised a beautiful sunny
weather across much of the uk and thatis weather across much of the uk and that is exactly what we had. now it's all change. over the next day oi’ it's all change. over the next day or $0 it's all change. over the next day or so we it's all change. over the next day or so we will see cloud increasing, humidity will go up and there's also a risk of thunder and all of this warmth and humidity is coming in from the south. it might stick around into saturday. but in the short—term, quiet, clearskies across the uk through this evening and tonight, but through the early hours of thursday, we will start to humidity and even some showers creeping into southern part of the uk. there might even be the odd downpour across the south first thing, but it won't be until later in the day or the afternoon before the showers become very happy and they will be very hit and miss, so best thing in the morning, they could be the odd heavy one here or perhaps very little rainfall at all. very difficult to forecast, the sort of weather, with the humidity and thunderstorms. for most of us north
of that, a great start of the day with lots of sunshine, but again, awkward, with potential spots of rain and a lot, lot warmer. by the time we get to lunchtime onwards, thatis time we get to lunchtime onwards, that is when the threat of thunder increases. these showers will be very few and far between. most of us will probably have a hazy, warm day, maybe some spots of rain, better weather i think the further north you are, maybe even 20 degrees across parts of yorkshire. there could be more substantial rain coming into the south as we go into friday, and as we had three friday, the south—westerly winds just keep on sending that cloud and also outbreaks of rain in our direction. i think, some rain around on friday morning across many central areas, maybe thunderstorms in the midland and further south as well, but this will be difficult to forecast as they could be dotted around anywhere across the southern half of the uk.
as we head into saturday, the cloudier, perhaps wetter weather will move into northern parts of england and scotland, temporarily drying out across the south, and then this weather front will be moving in the direction of the uk and by the time we get to saturday, i think it will turn quite a lot fresher across most of the uk. goodbye. this is bbc news.
i'm nicholas owen. the headlines at 11:00: president trump defends his decision to sack the head of the fbi without warning, saying james comey had lost the confidence of almost everyone in washington. no conservatives will face charges over claims they breached expenses rules, says the crown prosecution service. labour and the lib dems take the election campaign to the classroom both pledging billions more pounds for education — paid for by higher business taxes. and coming up, a draft of the labour ma nifesto and coming up, a draft of the labour manifesto is leaked. we will have an extended peek at what's in it.
