jerusalem as israel's declared jerusalem as israel's capital. this was a story widely anticipated but there has been shocked nonetheless. there has been because it is an extraordinary story. who on the globe could unite the pope, the un, china, russia, france, germany, britain, egypt, turkey, iran and saudi arabia? only one person and that is what donald trump did today. one of our commentators called it an act of diplomatic arson and the ksr he is potentially going to create, he has fumbled his way into what is a geopolitical hotspot —— the chaos. there is an agreement on one side about this needs to be approached and done and he has driven a bulldozer through it which is extraordinary. any nuance to the story? if there is it is hard to see it. we need to look at the immediate reaction from world leaders that came and it did not take our own prime minister long to say she
10:46 pm
disagreed entirely with the position and it was really unhelpful to the political process and the peace process which is very delicate out there. and we have seen pictures this evening of protests in gaza, peaceful protests that there is more to come to a general strike tomorrow. jerusalem is one of the most sensitive spots in the world, the holiest site injudaism, the third most important mosque and a hugely significant place to christians. it was always proposed during the peace process that it would be a last stage negotiation, direct party to party and donald trump has ripped that up and walked straight in. in our own story, this will destroy any hopes that the us has of being an honest broker and the palestinians have said that tonight, you will not be up to play as an honest broker and you are

throwing the whole region into international chaos. moving on, although that is a huge story, not many of the papers have it on their front page but what most of them do haveis front page but what most of them do have is brexit. in the daily telegraph, theresa may will fall without a deal once the eu. the daily telegraph have led with fears ofjon ford yougov —— jean—claude juncker perhaps worrying about his owi'i juncker perhaps worrying about his own position if he does not achieve a deal with britain, running up to the december the 14th crunch summit. what he is speaking about is his fears about the position of theresa may in government here and the worry is that the government could collapse. we saw some bookies yesterday slashing the odds of another general election imminently which i am sure will strike fear into the entire country more than
10:48 pm
anything! david davis, there have been rumours of him plotting to take the topjob with been rumours of him plotting to take the top job with people been rumours of him plotting to take the topjob with people giving him support and some of his supporters moving around but the butt and your owi'i moving around but the butt and your own paper has that story. —— moving around... -- moving around... some people fear she is a -- moving around... some people fear she isaa -- moving around... some people fear she is a a precarious position and i'm sure that the majority of tory mps don't feel that as anyone else to steer them through these times. many have said that her weakness is a strength. the front page of the times, staying on brexit, two big cabinet ministers making the paper and they concentrate on comments by philip hammond. slightly curious in that it philip hammond. slightly curious in thatitis philip hammond. slightly curious in that it is interesting that he has got himself in a bit more hot water which is becoming a familiar scenario for him. most of the other attention today has been on david
10:49 pm
davis. there were some good quotes from jacob rees—mogg saying he was worried on monday, meltdown monday when we had a deal and then a leak and then anger and recrimination and then chaos and farce and he said he was worried about timmis a's redlines so he got some paint out —— theresa may's red lines. she does not just have problems theresa may's red lines. she does notjust have problems with the irish and the dup who took 2a hours to ta ke irish and the dup who took 2a hours to take a call from the prime minister. she has got the eu a p pa re ntly minister. she has got the eu apparently bewildered over this and real problems, mutterings from the cabinet, but city is trying to stiffen her spine and the other group who have come out tonight, 20 mps saying don't walk away without a deal —— brexiteers trying. this is all tightrope stuff. the front page of the times as philip hammond's comments that britain could be paying £40 billion even if the trade
10:50 pm
talks fail, and you get the inside page and his colleague, david davis, not looking too happy. no! the picture tells a thousand words as they say also to hark back to philip hammond, what he is guilty of is being too honest. the problem for him recently has been that he speaks his mind and tell it as it is and thatis his mind and tell it as it is and that is difficult in politics! sometimes you wonder how he has got this far by being so honest. david davis was in front of the commons brexit, he first thing this morning and these pictures were on the televisions from this morning. he had a very difficult time when he revealed about impact assessments which i think a lot of people were underway now it appears not so. this is completely bewildering, a sequence of events where the
10:51 pm
secretary of state for exiting the eu says we have done the impact papers in fine detail and parliament says, can we see them, and he says they are secret, and parliament has do see them but they relax them. he hands them over and parliament looks at them and said you have not done any impact assessment after all and he says no, we haven't. the civil service did not do a good job and we will do them later. it is almost like a scene from yes, minister, apart from brexit is the most fundamental economic position we will take in our generation and the idea that these assessments are drifting off and the government doesn't really know what the impact of brexit will be or has not even tried to find out sector by sector is bewildering. he has been show up today to be at best a bluff and certainly people in labour think it is worse than that and are seeking a condemnation within parliament. and ina sense, condemnation within parliament. and in a sense, what he was saying was backed up by philip hammond who said
10:52 pm
there had not been a full cabinet discussion of what the end brexit deal should look like. we ran a story a few months ago with james forsyth saying the same thing, essentially that the cabinet has not set out their end state position. a few months ago they had initial talks and that was shelved for the meantime and i think that is because it isa meantime and i think that is because it is a pretty difficult one but it would seem quite preposterous to think that the cabinet are not all whole the united and with a vision for brexit and knowing what it is on this position 18 months on from the brexit road. one more brexit front page on the financial times which is the other dimension to the brexit astori —— from the brexit vote. this is the irish border with the irish premier raising the prospect of
10:53 pm
brexit divorce talks stretching into the new year if there is no agreement next week. some think that means that the irish premier is threatening to use his veto next week if he is not happy with the plan for the border. the phrase regulatory alignment has been on everybody‘s lips and many people have been getting out the thesaurus to see what it means but it seems they had to persuade the dup that regulatory alignment is not the same as being in the single market and the customs union. whether they can do that or not is unclear. the dup usually comes to the table but we'll sort of spin this out. they have a great deal of trouble here in that the longer you go on, it is significant because the longer we go in this phase, the shorter time we have to do the other elements, principally the trade deals also the longer time it takes to do other
10:54 pm
trade deals and move into that other arena, the less confidence there is about business and so forth and i think there is a lords report tonight saying this could cost 75,000 jobs in the city and you have to get on with this because confidence is seeping away. to get on with this because confidence is seeping awaym to get on with this because confidence is seeping away. it is easy to be gloomy, i don't think it would be the end of the world if it we nt would be the end of the world if it went into the new year and i think the dup are on board now and we will hopefully see some movement. the dup are on board now and we will hopefully see some movementlj the dup are on board now and we will hopefully see some movement. i can't quite see it myself! and the last story in the daily express, the where the 90 mph killer storm! perhaps their favourite story. the weather! killer storm? perhaps we ought to wait for it. this is storm caroline which is on its way towards us. i prefer it now that they name them. scotland and northern england will bear the brunt as always. it is
10:55 pm
not generally until it comes down south that it reaches the front pages normally. —10 is chilly enough... even for you scots? i think so! it is a bizarre front page to be honest. you think so? yes. look at the times, a terrific picture ofjudi dench, on the telegraph that is an interesting combination of stories, we have brexit, we have not seen the sun, but i am sure two thirds of the front page is not taken up by predictions of what might happen with a storm that might or might not hit us in a couple of days. people do love the weather stories. they do. thank you very much indeed. that is it for tonight, don't forget you can see the front pages on the papers online on the bbc new ways about —— at the bbc news website. it's all there for you seven days a week at, and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it
10:56 pm
later on bbc iplayer thank you to pauljohnson and lynn davidson. goodbye. there is some rough weather on the way over the next 24—hour is courtesy of a deep area of low pressure named storm caroline by the met office. all of these white lines, very strong winds and this weather front will bring outbreaks of rain southwards and eastwards through the first part of thursday and then as the system pushes through it will introduce ever colder air from through it will introduce ever colder airfrom the north through it will introduce ever colder air from the north which will eventually bring some snow showers. starting off thursday fairly mild, strong south—westerly winds towards the south—east and strong west or north westerly winds pushing into northern ireland and scotland and
10:57 pm
particularly in the northern half of scotla nd particularly in the northern half of scotland we are concerned about the strength of the winds with the arrows during the expected gusts reaching 80 mph or even a touch more as we head through the day on thursday for the some wintry showers could give blizzard conditions with the strength of the winds and disruption and potentially damage likely. the met office has issued an amber warning for the strength of the wind in northern scotland and a lesser yellow warning in central and southern scotland and northern ireland with a very windy and disruptive date. further south we have the rain to clear away which will take a while and as it does, the skies will brighten and some spells of sunshine for all of us through the afternoon. things will turn colder and these wintry showers become increasingly widespread in northern ireland, scotland and north west england and these drift further south and east through the night and could be snow showers cropping up
10:58 pm
just about anywhere and where the snow does for it could accumulate and that could give some issues with ice as well. on friday, a bright day with sunshine but a very cold date with sunshine but a very cold date with snow showers began cropping up anywhere. most likely in areas exposed to be north—westerly wind and when we consider the strength of it it will feel subzero in many places. it will turn briefly a bit quieter at the start of the weekend but on sunday we are concerned about this system pushing invoked the atla ntic this system pushing invoked the atlantic which is likely to bring rain and perhaps snow on the northern edge. a lot of uncertainty about this but we will keep you posted. this is bbc news. i'm reeta chakrabati. the headlines at 11: president trump breaks with decades of us foreign policy and recognises jerusalem as the capital of israel. ijudged this course of action to be in the best interests of the united states of america and the pursuit of peace
10:59 pm
between israel and the palestinians. the brexit secretary, david davis, reveals the government has done no formal assessments of the economic impact of leaving the eu. a man appears in court, accused of plotting to assassinate the prime minister and bomb downing street. and on newsnight, as trump crowns jerusalem israel's capital, we have the turkish presidents advisor, the israeli ambassador, palestinian and american voices, too.
