10:45 pm
answers are going to be thoroughly researched and the process is going to be done properly, it may take some time. let's look at the times front page. they also have a picture reflecting the grenfell service. one of the interesting stories on the front page is an brexit. after that commons defeat, theresa may is now expected to back away from plans to write the brexit date into law to avoid a second defeat in the commons next week, which would clearly be very damaging for her government, to have another commons defeat. yet, but from somebody looking from the outside it looks like ms. i don't understand why, for instance, tory mps should be... we've heard about asking for them to be sacked. i think it's ridiculous. how do you sack an mp anyway, you said that earlier. i don't know, ijust think it's a terrible mess. she was saying
10:46 pm
today she's won 35 out of 36 brexit wrote in the commons. basically, she said to keep calm and carry on, essentially. and stressed the fact the majority of the votes have passed. that's not to say emblematic lee what happened yesterday was significant, though i think it's much more about the emblematic element of it than the actual detail, which was pretty arcane. i think this story in the times, in some ways, it is more significant if she is to drop the suggestion there should be an absolute day, march 29, 2019, that we exit. i think it's more of a concession in a way than what was done yesterday. it does show how after the election...m
10:47 pm
what was done yesterday. it does show how after the election... it is vulnerability. that fragile majority. when you have to go through point by point, as we welcome all these issues and brexit, then that is the vulnerability of then that is the vulnerability of the government. i think it would probably be shrewd if the times is right about this, then it's probably a shrewd move under the circumstances. david, back to your point about the way those rebel mps have been treated, the 11th remain mps, the express front page says their readers have joined mps, the express front page says their readers havejoined cause to sack tory rebels who sided with labour. sack rebel mps and get on with brexit, that is the express front page. i don't know how you sack an mp, i thought you had to be deselected. they have to be voted out by the public. this is total hyperbole and doesn't really help the express to move towards a clean
10:48 pm
brexit any time soon. ramping up these divisions. one of their complaint is the mps who won, rebel mps, were seen celebrating with a glass of white wine in a commons bar. celebrating or perhaps soothing their wounds, who knows? there was a lot of talk about how the wits have been very hard line against rebels. allegations of bullying and so one. yes. there always is that kind of talk when things go to the wire like listed. whatever they did, it wasn't successful enough. the mirror, let's go on to that. still on the theresa may theme. may day is their headline. they are combining... the prime minister on the brink, they say. not only brexit, but homeless children up 70%. more people in a&e.
10:49 pm
knife crime by the young up 16%. a second person brexit defeat next week, which we've already talked about. all of the papers are loaded with their own politics. at a time like this they will drop. don't forget, as viewers and people watching the news, we've been ove rloa d e d watching the news, we've been overloaded with the big issues but there are a lot of issues underneath which i think are being ignored. homelessness is a huge problem. which i think are being ignored. homelessness is a huge problemm that because of brexit?” homelessness is a huge problemm that because of brexit? i think because brexit it's taken the headlines, a lot of drama it. political people always wanting to bring up the differences and so one. i think these other things have been neglected and it's right for the mirror to have picked up on some of those things, they are the things that affect us. homelessness is the front page, since that was mentioned. in the metro. homelessness up by 65% in seven yea rs, homelessness up by 65% in seven years, a homelessness up by 65% in seven yea rs, a pretty homelessness up by 65% in seven years, a pretty harsh statistic. yes, a horrific statistic without
10:50 pm
doubt. it kind of links back to 6 re nfell doubt. it kind of links back to grenfell because i think it's about social housing and the fact we haven't been providing it. i know lots of people in london really suffering, people working we've got proper jobs, suffering, people working we've got properjobs, finding it really difficult to keep up with the rent. landlords almost out of control at the moment with the amount of rent they can charge, and the very little they can charge, and the very little they are doing for housing. and benefits changes have meant a lot of people who were on benefits have not had their landlords paid. it used to be that you would pay them directly but now because of the changes one isn't getting to landlords, more people are being made homeless. do you blame the media for not highlighting those issues enough? clearly brexit is crucial to the future of this country, isn't it, and it has to be disgusting huge detail every day. that's what david is saying, there has been a big preoccupation on some of the parliamentary dramas rather than the substance of the issues. across some
10:51 pm
of the newspapers perhaps. all of thoseissues of the newspapers perhaps. all of those issues are political and can be solved, but completely, but can be solved, but completely, but can be helped with politicians backing and people concentrating on those issues. knife crime in london is a huge problem as well. i want to see that discussed. we know the prime minister herself is very much committed herself personally to the issue of housing, improving housing and homelessness. we've yet to... a big budget decision was made only two or three weeks ago in the budget. little was said about changing planning laws, which is where a lot of these things come to bear. prime minister on the brink, they said, is she on the brink? she was cheered by european leaders in brussels, we gather, for getting through phase one of the negotiations on to phase two. considering where she was after the election, some people say she could only survive a few more days. she's
10:52 pm
still here. she is still bad, the longer she is there the more likely she is to hang on until we go through to another election and the normal course of events. i'd be more concerned about her future if the panellist on the brink was in one of the other papers other than the mirror. you have to feel for her because only a week ago she had a breakthrough on brexit. looking at how we felt she seemed to physically look like the weight had lifted off her shoulders. it lasted just a few days. that is the life of a prime minister. financialtimes, days. that is the life of a prime minister. financial times, this extraordinary deal where murdoch and disney... murdoch, the man who has acquired and built his empire, built, built about, acquired and built his empire, built, builtabout, now acquired and built his empire, built, built about, now seems to be selling it off. he's quoted as saying he's pivoting at a pivotal moment, which appealed to me. it suggested he is acting in reaction
10:53 pm
to changes in how we consume media and entertainment. which is changing. absolutely, through streaming and internet, rather than the more traditional formats. streaming and internet, rather than the more traditionalformats. which 20th century fox were at the forefront. david, it's a fascinating story. it is. he still says those people who know him know he is a news man with a competitive spirit. i don't know where put that now. it looks like most of the new stuff is going to go. the last story we will look at is the telegraph. an extraordinary story. it claims the russians may be posing a threat to britain's internet access and trade because of undersea communication ca bles because of undersea communication cables vulnerable to the russian navy. a warning from the head of the armed forces in the uk. suggesting
10:54 pm
that russians are going to be cutting our cables. air chief marshal stuart piech. i never imagined that. i saw some thing about it in the news a few weeks ago. he is buying for money, he is lobbying for money. ago. he is buying for money, he is lobbying for moneylj ago. he is buying for money, he is lobbying for money. i think that's why it's coming back up. the fact of the matter is there are these cables under the sea. we haven't got the right equipment to be able to... because of the cuts and everything... he's pushing that as a way of getting more resources for the armed services. he argues exactly that, the navy doesn't have the appropriate... planes and ships that are capable of detecting a particular type of submarine... cable cutters. we're smiling about it but it could potentially be a very, very dangerous significant issue. a way of undermining how we do business, how we communicate with each other. it's interesting they
10:55 pm
are being so explicit about saying danger comes from russia. not to sound facetious but if they were cutting our tables, couldn't we cut fa res ? cutting our tables, couldn't we cut fares? there is a lot of information that flows over those cables. if we think about what they were prepared to do with the internet during the elections, maybe it is something. it might be that we're giving the russians an idea because... do we know they are planning this?” russians an idea because... do we know they are planning this? i don't think we would be likely to know sitting here this evening. i think i would be prepared to take the advice of the air chief marshall on this one. thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. good to see you both. that is it from the papers, you can see the front pages online on our bbc news website. therefore you seven days a week. if you happened to miss our programme, you
10:56 pm
can watch it later on iplayer. thank you jo—anne nadler and david akinsa nya. goodbye. evening, winter may well have reached its grip a little across the country. —— released. it wasn't the case across the highlands. temperatures barely crawled above freezing and there are still temperatures barely climbed above freezing and there's still 15 and there's still 15 still centimetres of lying snow. plenty of frequent snow showers as well through the course of the day, driven in by this north—westerly wind. further south, it was milder, temperatures sitting at around eight or 9 degrees, but the winds, gales at times, brought some pretty rough seas. now, the winds will start to fall light as we go through the night. we've still got some showers to move their way down from the north—west and as they do so, skies will clear and we could see some icy stretches first thing across northern england and scotland.
10:57 pm
here, temperatures perhaps sitting at around freezing. further south and west will see four or 5 degrees, but still some showers first thing in the morning. so we start of friday morning on a slightly quieter note in scotland. there will be fewer showers around and perhaps showers chiefly along the east coast, due to a subtle change in wind direction. though showers will be driven in along the north sea coast across parts of eastern england. further west will see one or two showers running down through west wales and south—west england as well. but, generally speaking, there'll be fewer showers further inland, one or two across the south—eastern corner and as we go through the day, that northerly wind will drive in the showers across the east coast and maybe one or two through the west coast but sandwiched in between the two it will be drier. there'll be some sunshine around but still, not feeling particularly warm out there. temperatures peaking at around three to 7 degrees. now those clear skies, those lighter winds are going to allow those temperatures to fall away on friday night. a widespread frost develops down through the spine of the country in particular. so a cold start to our saturday morning, but things will start to change as we go into the weekend.
10:58 pm
we lose the cool air. the wind changes yet again and the south—westerly will drive in milder, moist air with some rain expected for the second half of the weekend. so it certainly looks as though it could be a cold and frosty start for many. the exception, northern ireland, wales, south—west england. here, some cloud and a few scattered showers. where we've got that frost, we'll keep some sunshine but temperatures will struggle by day, two or three degrees at the very best. here comes that milder flow and here comes the rain unfortunately into northern ireland and north—west scotland, but it will be milder. double digits in the west. this is bbc news, i'm ben brown. the headlines at 11:00pm: a national memorial service is held six months to the day after the fire at grenfell tower. as theresa may meets other eu leaders in brussels, she insists brexit is on track. in one of the biggest
