political editor of the mirror and caroline wheeler of the sunday express. the overall story is for all areas to see at some point, but there will be blustery showers around. and quite a breeze still tonight. the rain will work towards east anglia and the south—east. light and partly by the morning. away from that, we will see showers across northern ireland and parts of central and western scotland. but temperatures are holding up, given the breeze. quite a muggy night. in the morning, the showers become more widespread across scotland and northern ireland. sunshine in between. bridges in the mid teens at this stage. one or two may avoid the. much of england, compared to what you saw today, a vastly brighter start. a bit of a breeze. a few showers around the isle of man and cumbria, but a grey start in the
midlands. cloud in the south—east will break up. a dry afternoon here with sunny spells. elsewhere, showers become heavy with helen funder in scotland and northern ireland. and showers become more abundant across the midlands, wales and the south—west. once you have got the sunshine, it should still feel pleasant out of the breeze. we finished today with those showers across scotland, northern ireland and northern england. quite a windy night in store to take us into the start of the new working week. the further south and east you are, you should go into monday on a drying out, but it will be a fresh start compared with sunday morning. for monday morning rush—hour across parts of scotland, the central belt could see winds of 50 miles an hour. that could cause a few issues. showers are not as plentiful on monday. northern ireland will avoid most of them. there will be a few showers in northern ireland and northern wales. and then into the
rest of the week, high pressure such the build from the south. we will still see a few bits of rain come and go at times across parts of scotla nd and go at times across parts of scotland and northern ireland, but temperatures will be on the up from mid week onwards and with it across some southern parts of the country, lots of sunshine. hello, this is bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment, but first the headlines. downing street has confirmed that it has agreed the principles of a deal with northern ireland's democratic unionists to help keep the prime minister in power. theresa may finds herself leading a minority administration and needs the help of ten dup mps to survive. earlier, the prime minister's two chief advisers resigned. the bbc understands that theresa may had been warned that unless they went, she would face a leadership challenge. they've been replaced by the former tory mp, gavin barwell, who's theresa may's new downing street chief of staff,
after losing his croydon central seat in the general election. the metropolitan police has revealed the london bridge attackers tried to hire a seven and a half tonne lorry to carry out last saturday's attack but the payment was declined. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are jack blanchard, political editor of the mirror and caroline wheeler, political editor of the sunday express. tomorrow's front pages: the observer says may's premiership is in peril. the paper leads with its editorial comment saying mrs may is discredited, humiliated, and diminished. it concludes she has lost credibility and leverage. the daily mail says
the foreign secretary borisjohnson, is set to launch a bid to become prime minister. it also carries a picture of former top gear presenter richard hammond who is in a serious condition after being involved in a car crash during filming in switzerland. the telegraph says theresa may may be in downing street but she has no power after losing her majority in parliament. the paper says senior tories are jostling in an unofficial race to replace her. the sunday times claims as many as five cabinet ministers are urging borisjohnson to oust theresa may. the express leads with the resignation of theresa may's two closest advisers nick timothy and fiona hill — it's headline refers to them as toxic. so let's begin. by by the way, we will be with you for 20 minutes tonight, i hope you are
pleased. the observer... i should calm down a bit. the observer, made‘s premiership in peril. we know we've got this mechanism called confidence and supply, caroline, who would or wouldn't want a dup coalition? it would be more stable, wouldn't it? that is the pro of having a coalition deal, she could have confidence, although not great confidence, that she can get some legislation through the house of commons, but it would only give her a majority of two. that means that if people didn't turn up, she would still struggle to command that majority. there are concerns about the dup stance it particularly in things like abortion, gay rights and
climate change. there has been lots of twitter activity with mp5, sarah woollaston was one of them, really being very bad vocal about their opposition to this kind of opposition to this kind of opposition of the party and their sta nce opposition of the party and their stance on these particular issues so they have urged her to proceed with caution. but she needs back-up from somewhere and her options are limited. very limited but this was a prime minister who spent the last seven weeks shrieking about a coalition of chaos, labour were supposed to be a big threat to the nation. she also tried to target your position as a terrorist sympathiser and there she is trying to find a coalition with the pretty unpleasant party who has rather close ties to pretty unpleasant people in northern ireland. the hypocrisy is unbelievable. but the
dup have tendencies, they are only judgment party, they are a natural fit, in some ways? they are certainly a conservative with a small c party but they are ultraconservative. they are not mainstream by any sort of measure. the sort of stuff they talk about in terms of climate change, denying it exists, and gay rights, really unpleasant things some of their politicians have said. david cameron spent a long time trying to detoxify the conservative party and it was semi successful. theresa may was the one who warned they were seen as the nasty party and now they are getting into bed with some of the most unpleasant people in parliament.- the extremes of all parties, there are the extremes of all parties, there a re less the extremes of all parties, there are less liberally minded types. in any party. some of the things that
ukip, remember them? some any party. some of the things that ukip, rememberthem? some of any party. some of the things that ukip, remember them? some of the things they talked about, a lot of people felt they were distasteful. remember the holder ba klava people felt they were distasteful. remember the holder baklava donald trump, when he came to power, nigel farage was the only person talking to him from this side of the pond. they were very here they would not do business with him, there were not going to make him an unofficial adviser, they have resisted those kinds of moves before. the other really serious point, even when you get away from talking about that as a shield on women's rights, for example, is the whole peace process. the current peacekeeping agreement ends at the end of this month and does not compromise our neutrality on this position completely if the government is side in with one particular party? there are more and more voices coming out on this. the
former northern ireland secretary peter hain has said the prospect of this could be really calamitous for the peace process moving forward. sinn fein said there were to start talks immediately about power—sharing again and their view is that this kind of association between the dup and the conservatives isn't permissible because of the good friday agreement. exactly. the westminster government are supposed to be neutral to try and find a balance between them. john major had no majority in the house of commons when he was prime minister but he would not get in to bed with the dup because he knew how damaging it would be. theresa may comes out on the early hours of friday morning with no sleep, she is straight on the phone to them, she doesn't care. what she cares about insuring up her... power. she cares about how
power. the other story on the front page is drop hard exit, demand mps. there will be pressure from all sides, remainers, leave us,... this isa sides, remainers, leave us,... this is a massive problem she has, even with the dup, she has this time majority in parliament and it means every time she comes to parliament with the big vote over brexit, there will be a fraction over one side of the other on her own backbenches who say, i don't like that. if they don't vote for it, she won't get it through. she needs every single one of hermps to through. she needs every single one of her mps to support her. and there is no way you can unify the party on some of those positions. and the robber you've got there is it is not just her own backbench that will be missing. —— the problem. ruth
davidson is talking about more ( it. some of those think it is a failed bid for dropping the single market. she knows that she not only saved the union but she actually said theresa may from an even more punishing defeat, had she not got those seats in scotland, she would not have been able to get anywhere near trying to form a majority government. you've got the labour party, green mps, they could all unite together all to make the great repeal bill which we understand will be the centrepiece still of the queen's speech, simply because it has to be, and they could make the passage of that bill which will be in credibly complex very difficult and inflict defeat upon defeat upon defeat. and never mind the lords. never mind the lords because if she had got her manifesto through she
would have been able to rely on the salisbury convention. the salisbury convention means that if you have a ma nifesto, convention means that if you have a manifesto, your pledges don't have to go under the same scrutiny by the house of lords as pledges that aren't in the manifesto which makes it easier to pass unpopular legislation. she was relying on this with her grammar schools legislation because it meant she could circumvent the house of lords. in 2010, they didn't honour the salisbury convention which means that anything related to brexit that you put in that manifesto will have to go through the lords. and the lords famously and controversially stood in the way of welfare changes. and that is because when they aren't put in the manifesto, the laws can say, nobody has voted for this, and we are going to have our say. if it was in the manifesto and lots a lot of people voted on it, they haven't got a leg to stand on, but theresa
may haven't got a mandate, people haven't voted on it. the sunday telegraph, in office, but not in power. herfragile leadership suffers a further blow with these two aides resigning. because it appears, caroline, that they were senior tories were saying that these two have to go. this all started during pretty much from the moment the manifesto was launched. mps were utterly serious that the social care policy. that also thought some of the other proposals that had led the call the other proposals that had led the ca ll vote, the other proposals that had led the call vote, the abandonment of the winter fuel allowance, was and said they got —— unforgivable. people we re they got —— unforgivable. people were describing it as going round on the doorstep like a cold bucket of sick. offering the choice to voters between syphilis and bubonic plague was how one voter put it to me.
there was a question about even if she won slightly convincingly by a0 to the votes if they would actually survive. as soon as we knew this was heading towards the coalitions government, it was seen as catastrophic from the policy narrative, these two would always be... yourfabulous narrative, these two would always be... your fabulous report narrative, these two would always be... yourfabulous report this morning that we all leapt upon, there was a real ultimatum issued by theresa may to say that unless they 90, theresa may to say that unless they go, you go. they handed in their resignations and the letters and state m e nts resignations and the letters and statements were public today.
