10:45 pm
it was to in the daily telegraph. it was to make her look quite tough and pander, almost, to the brexit wing of the party. she got beaten early in the week for the first time on the withdrawal bill. there was a hard—core of tory rebels. she was looking at another defeat on this amendment on the brexit dates next week. looks as though tonight there has been a climb—down, she's managed to get other tory mps to put forward a slightly diluted version of the amendment, which the remain rebels have said they will vote for. she's not going to lose the vote next week. it is again how weak her position is, this was supposed to be heard test of strength. she's had to back down. what more brexit story before we move on, in the scottish times, an angolan immigration control. economic worries. with the uncertainty of brexit. we've had the
10:46 pm
snp budget. this is coming home to roost, people thinking, what happens next? this is what is coming next. now we've moved on to the bit where we discuss trade with the eu, this is going to come back onto the agenda. the relationship between immigration control and the economy. hence the scottish times, the times in scotland, leeds with this story of how the scottish economy is being stifled by uncertainty. over immigration and trade, which is suppressing wages. it is also making businesses lack confidence and lack capacity to make decisions around investment. it is, of course, that dilemma. because throughout there has been this fact, sorry to have to use has been this fact, sorry to have to use the word, but it is a fact, the economy is adversely impacted.
10:47 pm
various sectors are starting to suffer, particularly the nhs, which is in suffer, particularly the nhs, which isina suffer, particularly the nhs, which is in a recruitment crisis because nurses especially, and doctors, from the eu, no longerwant nurses especially, and doctors, from the eu, no longer want to come here. partly because they have no guarantee of what their work and living conditions will be, partly because the uk has become a hostile place, in terms of turning landlords and hospitals and doctors into border police. has it become a hostile place? absolutely it has become a hostile place. hostile elements, i'm not the country is hostile. when we talk about landlords refusing anyone without a british passport a lease, i would describe that as hostile. that is a hostile act... but... visa hostile conditions. i don't think everybody
10:48 pm
in the uk is hostile, i don't think people from every person in the uk as hostile. the climate in this country is hostile. let's come away from brexit because that takes us into calmer waters. back to the financial times, a story about ryanairand financial times, a story about ryanair and another financial times, a story about rya nair and another feisty character in the form of michael o'leary. we've seen something of a change in the position of ryanair. the prime minister has had to back down on this amendment. ryanair have had to back down. michael o'leary the chief executive has consistently spoken against trade representation for his pilots. now he's had this ongoing dispute with pilots, christmas is coming, clearly this is the worst possible time of year for them to have cancellations. he's basically read the writing on the wall. a remarkable u—turn given his record.
10:49 pm
a christmas miracle. he says he'll recognise unions as a way of getting an agreement with the pilots to get the planes back in the air because they do not want... something like 20,000 flights were cancelled in the summer, which was disruptive enough, people missing out on their holidays. people want to fly home for christmas and that is probably worse. i feel like you've almost burst into song, driving home for christmas. to the times, they lead on a different story. we looked at the times in scotland, the immigration story. in england, the times focusing on this rape case, which has fallen apart because of a load of evidence that never made it to the defence team casebook. it has opened up a whole issue about whether this is happening more widely. a road kick that collapsed because at the 11th hour evidence
10:50 pm
was given to the defence that exonerated someone was given to the defence that exonerated someone who had spent to years on bail with the threat of a six—year conviction hanging over them. the time is now say there are more cases like this, that, you know, this is something that wasn't just a one—off in terms of how the police handle evidence. they think we need to be careful how we handle this story. because there is a quote here from someone from the criminal bar association, saying the failure with a rape case, that we heard about yesterday, was not an isolated incident, and police and the cps might be unconsciously biased towards people who report... that cannot be the case. flying in the face of what we normally say. cannot be the case. flying in the face of what we normally saym that were the case, the rape conviction case would be higher than 596. conviction case would be higher than 5%. it seems to me not necessarily a
10:51 pm
very helpful comment to make in that context are very valid claims, about the way police and the cps handle evidence, which might also be related to funding and having to operate with cuts. more to say on that story but i'll delve into the daily mail. what a right royal own goal, this is about the date of harry and megan's wedding. incredible, of all the saturdays they could have picked, they picked they could have picked, they picked the same day as the fa cup final. i got married in may and it was at the back of my mind because a lot of my friends coming down from scotland i knew were big football fans, i thought it's not on the same day as a cup final. it wasn't, i was telling rigel earlier, my mum and dad got married on the date of the cup final, scottish cup final, 1971. my cup final, scottish cup final, 1971. my dad is a big celtic fan, celtic
10:52 pm
we re my dad is a big celtic fan, celtic were in the final, so he missed the final. it went to replay and he cut short his honeymoon. came home. quite a good test bed for the bride to see how serious her husband is. you think, is he going to be fully concentrating on the wedding have his mind on the football. it is of this story turned up one of the reasons it ended up on the same day as cup finals is because they decided they couldn't have it the friday before because it would necessitate a bank holiday. that is just mean. i'd love a bank holiday. not only does it clash with the cup final but we've been deprived of an extra holiday. the suggestion is prince william, president of the fa, might have to sneak off quickly after the service. they say they will have a morning service so he can make it in time. right, to the mirror, nurses, immigration, this is
10:53 pm
a big nurse story. despicable is just one word, the big headline. what is despicable according to the daily mail. we have got many details. not a lot to go on. the focus for the mirror is the 14 day christmas tv guide. nurses are having to pay for parking. which seems extraordinary, the amounts they are having to pay, especially since we already know we have this seven year pay cap amongst other things. they are facing huge crisis, financially. we heard through this year, nurses having to use food banks and generally finding it very ha rd banks and generally finding it very hard to stay afloat. it reminds me of one of the things in the labour party manifesto, to provide free parking for nhs staff as well as visitors. starting to see the sense of introducing something like that. they say £1300 a year. a lot of
10:54 pm
money. you have to feed the meter at hospitals. you assume it's a separate car park. the daily telegraph, let's whizz through. they have this story about town versus country, a technological divide. what is this? eight in ten homes in rural areas are essentially mobile phone blackspots. can't send text messages, can't go on the internet. this is a piece of research, back—up plans by the government to loosen planning laws, so more mobile phone masts can go up. it can be bad enoughin masts can go up. it can be bad enough in london, but nothing compared to rural areas in this day and age where people do so much online, people work from home. not
10:55 pm
being able to access a mobile internet coverage, it's almost like running water and heat and light these days, people just assume... they ought to have it. difficult to go about your normal business without access. holding business back, small businesses especially say this particularly hinders development and growth. it's frustrating to hear about nationwide these things holding the economy back we shouldn't have to put up with this type of... especially the postcode lottery, if you live in a rural area, that is the price you have to pay, you can't phone anyone. we can't avoid ending with a little bit of sparkle, a bit of glitterball. in the daily express. debbie mcgee, aged 59, is doing so brilliantly on strictly. what i want to be the dancing queen. highlighting it is the strictly final, should we be excited, will you be watching? i mean, everyone is
10:56 pm
excited. she's been great, really inspiring throughout and, you know, i think she's... ijust inspiring throughout and, you know, i think she's. .. i just wonder... she's 59, in great shape, such high praise from the judges. she's 59, in great shape, such high praise from the judgeslj she's 59, in great shape, such high praise from the judges. i wonder whether she has the... i haven't watched very closely all series because my eldest‘s daughter is mad on it, i wonder if she is popular with the public because i remember her being in the dance—off a few weeks ago despite doing really well. i wonder whether the public don't quite want her to win it, that's my... quite want her to win it, that's top tip. quite want her to win it, that's my... top tip. the favourite is joe, is done very well and has been capturing hearts along the way.l very good scottish contestant. your money is on him as well? we don't see any buyers. completely impartial. 6:30pm tomorrow night, a little plug for the strictly final if people want uplift in these impossibly bleak times. thank you to
10:57 pm
kevan at rachel, that is all from the papers. you can see the front pages of the papers online and on the website. if you missed the programme on any evening you can watch it again online. thank you to kevin schofield and rachel shabi, that's all from us tonight. good night. evening. a week dominated by snow and ice stories, but we close out our working week on a more positive note with decent spells of sunshine for many today. still chilly out there but i'm sure the sunshine compensated. the exception was across the east of england through the north sea, some showers filtered their way in. i'm sure it felt cold if you caught those. coming in off the north sea coast. two showers through south—west wales and
10:58 pm
south—west england. in between the two a good deal of dry weather in the story. as clear skies will allow temperatures to fall away. a cold night to come and frost for many. looks like we'll see temperatures down a couple of degrees below freezing. the exception northern ireland, wales and south—west england. here there will be more in the way of cloud and showers around, not too many in the south—west first thing, but they will become widespread into the afternoon. a cold start into the london area and to the midlands. hopefully sunshine if you are up and off early. scattering of charge through wales and north—west england, and one or two showers into northern ireland and will west facing coasts of scotland. the majority of scotland should be dry with sunshine around after a wintry week, i'm sure it'll come as welcome news. a cold day. despite the frost, plenty of sunshine. temperatures still struggling here. the exception, again, through northern ireland, wales and south—west england, where we keep showers 6—8d. only around or
10:59 pm
three with the best of the sunshine. the cold air will be pushed out of the way by a change of wind direction, driving in moist air. more wet weather to come. rain for all of us at some point on sunday. the weather front arrives during the early hours of sunday morning into the north—west and some quite heavy through northern ireland. the west facing coast of scotland, north—west england and wales. pushing erratically eased, showery outbreaks of rain across the eastern england into the afternoon. double digits to the left, io-ild into the afternoon. double digits to the left, 10—11d by the middle of the left, 10—11d by the middle of the afternoon. it sets a trend into the afternoon. it sets a trend into the early half of next week. looks as though it would be mainly dry and milder than it has been recently. quite cloudy. this is bbc news.
11:00 pm
the headlines at 11: brexit talks get the green light in brussels — they will now move on to the next stage. a student is cleared of rape after police fail to disclose evidence which could have proved his innocence. ryanair agrees to recognise pilots' unions for the first time — in an attempt to avert strike action in the run—up to christmas. and on newsnight, now that we are entering the next stage of brexit talks, we jump ahead with our guests, including the historian niall ferguson, to examine britain's post—eu future, and how we want to present ourselves to the world.
