10:46 pm
with me arejo phillips, political commentator and nigel nelson, political editor of sunday mirror and sunday people. a chance to cut up each —— to catch up a chance to cut up each —— to catch up with them because they've had a bit of a head start. tomorrow's front pages then, starting with. .. the times says that paedophiles are using youtube as a ‘shop window‘ to showcase abused children. the telegraph says that police have sparked an increase in shoplifting by not investigating thefts under £200. the guardian leads with tory mps demanding that chancellor phillip hammond reveal the brexit research papers looking at trade outcomes. brexit also fronts the 'i" — following comments from the conservative mayor of the west midlands warning against a hard brexit. the case of laura plummer, the british womenjailed in egypt leads the mirror. the financial times says that the retail sector is disappointed at the drop in footfall for the traditional boxing day sales. the sun leads with british troops being asked to use gender neutral words — dubbing it the pc brigade. and the express says a stroll in the garden will help fight dementia. so let's begin. good that you have joined us for the
10:47 pm
rest of the festivities. what else would you be doing! just stuffing yourself with cold turkey! talking about some of these stories seem to have been reheated! well we end the year as we began talking about brexit. tell us about, we will talk about that in a moment. but first the case of laura plummer. jailed for taking drugs into egypt. so she's 33, she comes from hull city, she's 33, she comes from hull city, she went out in october to see her partner and she was arrested on suspicion of trafficking drugs at the airport. she was found with 290
10:48 pm
tramadol tablets in her luggage which she claims were for her partner who suffers from chronic back pain. tramadol is a very heavy duty pain reliever which you can only get in this country in prescription. herfamily only get in this country in prescription. her family obviously devastated, she has been in a jail ina communal devastated, she has been in a jail in a communal cell since being arrested in october and clearly very distressing. but there are i think questions about, if the prescription for tramadol was not for her then who was at four. because you can ta ke who was at four. because you can take prescription drugs legally providing you can prove that they are for you and you have only the amount you need. so you think if she had been able to accept a prescription, present bad, that would have helped her case? exactly and another question about 290 ta blets and another question about 290 tablets being quite a lot. i'm sure for herfamily tablets being quite a lot. i'm sure for her family it
10:49 pm
tablets being quite a lot. i'm sure for herfamily it is tablets being quite a lot. i'm sure for her family it is devastating and for her family it is devastating and for her family it is devastating and for her as well but there seems to be something not quite right. the guardian straightforward and factual. the mirrored taking a more judgmental view. that is right and i think the contrast is interesting. the mirror pretty much more on the side of laura plummer, our girl will die in hellhole jail. not talking about the rights and wrongs of the case are much as more of an appeal for clemency. one of the things that comes out from this is that we all need to be aware of what we can take into someone else's country and what we cannot. the advice on the foreign office website. if you are taking drugs in the prescription drugs albeit, to find out if they are legal in the country you're going to. people might not necessarily think about it. according to an
10:50 pm
interview with her mbe earlier today on radio 4, karl turner, that information may only went up on the foreign office website since her arrest. but you should still be asking the question, you would expect to take enough jerks that you would need for your own prescription for the length of time you will be there. but 290. politically this has played better for the government than the case of the iranian woman because the labour mp poured praise on the foreign office. this is the point i was making about this being a clemency issue, that if she did not know and was a bit naive about taking drugs, it may well be we could ask for mercy from the egyptian authorities. but that is the kind of thing the foreign office could do, and at the moment from what we've seen it does not seem to be that that the conviction is actually wrong. moving on to a
10:51 pm
subject that is no great surprise, the boxing day sales. have you picked up any bargains? have you seen the bags in the corridor! back in the old days when we were young reporters, will often dispatched to some department stores where some ha pless some department stores where some hapless couple would spend their entire christmas waiting to purchase a reduced price suffer and they would get a bargain. those days have gone. but apparently people still do flock to the shops. and judging by oxford street in london, they still do. but not as good as it looks because according to analysis, football is down by 5.2% on last year. retail having a tough time this year. will it matter if instead
10:52 pm
of footfall in the shops, we just let ourfingers do of footfall in the shops, we just let our fingers do the walking? i'm not sure it would, as long as people are buying things it does not make a huge difference where they are buying them. it does to the shops but not the economy as a whole. provided you have people doing that. but at the moment the online figures have not come through so there is a questionable whether inflation has fiow questionable whether inflation has now stopped people buying stuff. we will know when we have the full picture. but if you shops go bust, and the high street becomes... and also you would imagine most high street stores probably pay their fairshare of street stores probably pay their fair share of tax. for some on rail —— online retailers may not necessarily. many of them do not as we have seen. well there is a novel ta ke we have seen. well there is a novel take on this story? again a light—coloured rehash, because this is about what came into force with
10:53 pm
the anti—social behaviour act. the police decided that there would be a £200 threshold for pursuing criminals for shoplifting and things like that. and if caught and prosecuted it would all be done by post. so they're looking at limited resources , post. so they're looking at limited resources, they are cash—strapped. but of course retailers are getting fed up with this. and what is a p pa re ntly fed up with this. and what is apparently anecdotally according to this story coming to light is that organised gangs can go into shops and they can steal stuff valued under £200. so £199? and they can steal stuff valued under £200. so £i99? orto and they can steal stuff valued under £200. so £i99? or to lots of £100 or under £200. so £199? or to lots of £100 or whatever, that can still be used,it £100 or whatever, that can still be used, it is still good and can be used, it is still good and can be used for other things whether it is
10:54 pm
buying drugs barons or whatever. so they're worried about the consequences. and also retailers are still out. and no one would want the message to go out that this is what you should be doing. this happens with some police forces investigating car theft and suddenly there is a spate of car thefts, bound to happen. well the sun newspaper, again talking about from an cha ntrey, always newspaper, again talking about from an chantrey, always good to find a pc story. underneath a photograph of rhianna. about the ministry of defence, allegedly. allegedly. the pc brigade, very large writing. a p pa re ntly pc brigade, very large writing. apparently a notice has gone up in some base. this is one for the new defence secretary! they do not like
10:55 pm
army slogans. anyway what it is suggesting is words like mankind, sportsmanship, because they contain the word man, they should look for alternatives. i do not mind too much humankind, ican alternatives. i do not mind too much humankind, i can just alternatives. i do not mind too much humankind, i canjust about manage that. mankind is anthropological. i appreciate that. there are certain areas. . . appreciate that. there are certain areas... when it comes to things like manhole covers i do not like the idea of human hole covers. and also, i think writing nowadays has got more difficult sol also, i think writing nowadays has got more difficult so i quote government '5 books man, spokes woman, depending on who is providing
10:56 pm
the information. this is going to run and run. we will be back at 11:30pm and also we have a big sports story. see you then. from all of us for now, goodbye. good evening. after a great christmas for many, eventually some snow did fall and left a few places with some beautiful boxing day scenes. this is how it looked earlier on. tonight mixed in with the rain we also have further sleet and snow in places. some wintry showers in the north of the country and this band of wet weather in the south, and producing some snowfall
10:57 pm
on its leading edge. more like sleet 01’ on its leading edge. more like sleet or rain at low levels and further north some wintry showers but also some very low temperatures. so we could have some icy stretches tomorrow morning. tomorrow looking like quite a miserable day with still some sleet and snow. hanging round white into the afternoon in the far south—east. but further west into some sunshine. a beautiful looking day but chile. four or 5 degrees in the south west and wales. crisp sunshine across northern england and the bulk of scotland. some wintry showers still feeding down into northern ireland. quite a
10:58 pm
blustery day as well. as we go through into the evening wintry showers just keep through into the evening wintry showersjust keep on through into the evening wintry showers just keep on coming. and the risk of some icy stretches as temperatures dipped close to freezing or below in some places. but thursday shaping up to be a decent day. some high—pressure giving mainly fine conditions. frontal system waiting in the wings introducing thickening cloud and some outbreaks of rain. but for many it stays fine and dry. but temperatures struggling to recover. further spells of showery rain at times towards the end of the week. and by the weekend it turns much milder. this is bbc news.

the headlines at 11: a british woman is sentenced to three years in jail in egypt for taking painkillers into the country — her sister says she fears for her safety. she is on the verge of a mental breakdown. and so is my mother. it is just horrendous. universities should "open minds, not close them", says the government, and face fines if they don't protect free speech. millions of shoppers have been searching for sale bargains — but fewer of us have hit the high streets compared to last boxing day. a russian cargo ship is listing near portsmouth harbour and is being assisted by the coastguard. it's harry's game — tottenham's star striker sets a new record for the most premier league goals in a calendar
