1:01 pm
have criticised borisjohnson for his latest blistering attack on theresa may's brexit plan. the former foreign secretary said mrs may had "wrapped a suicide vest" around the british constitution and "handed the detonator" to the eu. the home secretary, sajid javid, said there were "much better ways" to articulate differences, and the row served as a reminder to public figures to use measured language. writing in the mail on sunday, mrjohnson said, "we have opened ourselves to perpetual political blackmail". he went on to say, "we have wrapped a suicide vest "around the british constitution and handed "the detonator to michel barnier."
1:02 pm
his language has already been criticised by some conservative mps. the foreign office minister, alan duncan called his remarks "disgusting". our political correspondent, helen catt gave more details about the latest storm around mr johnson. he decided to employ this metaphor of a suicide vest, saying theresa may would be wrapping a suicide vest around the british constitution and handing the detonator to the eu. as you said, that's seen some quite vocal backlash, sir alan duncan who worked with borisjohnson at the foreign office said it marked a disgusting moment in modern british politics, tom tugendhat the chair of the foreign affairs select committee who was a former serving officer in afghanistan, strong condemnation from him, he saw a suicide bomb while in helmand province, comparing the prime minister to that was not funny and he urged some people to grow up.
1:03 pm
not everyone so strong in their criticism, community secretary james brokenshaw criticised his tone and sajid javad speaking to andrew marr this morning stopped short of criticising him quite so vocally. i think there are much better ways to articulate differences and i think it's a reminder i think for all of us in public policy whichever political party we represent, to use measured language which i think that is what the public wants to see. in terms of measured language it's the first time i've had a chance to ask you, would you approve the description of women who wear the hijab or niqab as letterboxes? it's not language i would use. do you think he has a language problem? get him on your programme and quiz him yourself. do you think he's islamophobic? sorry, say again? no. i've known him well over a number of years, i think he loves all of britain's communities no matter where they come from. look at the stuff in today's papers,
1:04 pm
do you think he would be a fit leader of the conservative party? we're not looking for a leader, we are lucky to have a very good leader and she is also the prime minister of this country and she's doing a greatjob. he may say the party is not looking for a leader but boris johnson may have other ideas, there is speculation he is preparing a leadership bid and this article some would say paves the way for this leadership bid. absolutely, most things are borisjohnson says at the moment are being viewed through the prism of his leadership ambitions. this was an article designed to cause a stir and there will be those who love this sort of turn of phrase but it gets him on the front pages and of course he is a politician that has the sort of cut through with the public that many other aspiring conservative leaders can only dream of. all of this at a time when his private life has been under scrutiny, claims
1:05 pm
in the sunday times today that downing street have a sort of dossier, 4,000 word dossier to use against him. this is what the sunday times describes as a 4,000 word war book which covers areas like his love life and other personal matters, said to have started circulating last week despite being written in 2016. of course last week was when they got the revelations about his private life in the papers which again some have said may hinder his leadership ambitions, others thinking it mightjust be getting all the bad news out first. downing street has categorically denied that they leaked the dossier to undermine boris johnson, they say it's offensive and 100% untrue to suggest they leaked it. that was our political correspondent, helen catt, talking to me a little earlier. let's get more on this now from andrew bridgen, the conservative mp for north west leicestershire. hejoins me down the line from millbank. thank you for being with us. what do
1:06 pm
you make of the comments from boris johnson? they have been criticised by the home secretary today, saying he needs to use more measured language than talking about suicide vests. one of the things i most admire about boris johnson vests. one of the things i most admire about borisjohnson and something that endears him to a lot of the british public is the fact that he says it how he sees it, and speaks truth to power. the fact that those in power don't appreciate that i think is understandable. is that language you would use? is not necessarily, but i'm not a great rate or a journalist, unlike boris johnson. he articulates he was that are held by the great swathe of our population and i think they find it refreshing that someone in a position, a public position, says it
1:07 pm
has a see it. the chair of the foreign affairs select committee, who saw a suicide bomb go off in afghanistan, said that the remarks are not funny and some people need to grow up. well, what we're talking about is oui’ well, what we're talking about is our future relationship with the european union, after we have left. this is something that will affect oui’ this is something that will affect our grandchildren their grandchildren. i believe it's time to drop the deeply flawed chequers proposals, to chuck chequers and stand up for brexit. if we don't deliver it, it will have huge repercussions for the country and the government and the future of the conservative party. is borisjohnson conservative party. is boris johnson preparing conservative party. is borisjohnson preparing for a leadership bid? i think boris johnson leadership bid? i think borisjohnson is doing what a lot of us are doing, trying to persuade the prime minister to drop the chequers agreement. at the end of the day, the chequers proposal is not the brexit we promised the british people. it doesn't take
1:08 pm
control of our borders or our money oi’ control of our borders or our money or laws. it will keep this as a battle state, and we will be a law taker and battle state, and we will be a law takerand a battle state, and we will be a law taker and a captive market for overpriced eu goods going forward and unable to enjoy signing up free trade deals with growing parts of the world economy. that is the main economic benefit of brexit. if the prime minister sticks with her chequers plan, and we think she is, do you think there should be an attempt to oust her as party leader and prime minister? it puts me on this spot because i have publicly stated i have a letter of no confidence on the prime minister. it is not that i have no confidence in the pro minister, i have no confidence in the chequers proposal, and while she sticks with that, i think there will be a number of colleagues putting in letters of no—confidence. you can't have our totemic policy for leaving the eu we re totemic policy for leaving the eu were only about 14% of the uk
1:09 pm
population think it is a good deal for the country. the prime minister said no deal is better than a bad deal and chequers is a very, very bad deal. do you think borisjohnson would be a better party leader and prime minister than theresa may? ultimately, when it comes to who is going to be the next leader of the party, i'm looking for someone who will deliver the brexit we promised the british people and i'm well aware it isn't brexit that is the threat to the future of the country, it's the prospect ofjeremy corbyn and his marxist, racist labour party in numberten and and his marxist, racist labour party in number ten and i'm looking for the best person to beat him in a general election. to my mind, boris johnson to expose —— ticks both of those boxes. your party is hopelessly divided. we have had mps condemning the former foreign secretary for what he has said. we are a broad church but this
1:10 pm
isa said. we are a broad church but this is a fight for the hearts and minds of the country and indeed for the parliamentary party. if it does come toa parliamentary party. if it does come to a civil war, they are always fairly bloody but hopefully it will be rather short. the prime minister keeps saying she is confident of getting a deal with the eu, her deal, the chequers plan, through. are you saying she's wrong? i'm not surprised. the chequers proposals are fantastic for the european union. they get to import their goods into us. we are under their goods into us. we are under the common law would back —— the common rule book. we are the third oi’ common rule book. we are the third or fourth common rule book. we are the third orfourth biggest common rule book. we are the third or fourth biggest military budget. if we are couched to the point that we are willing to accept the chequers proposal, there is no chance for any other country ever choosing to leave the european union, and that is what it wants. we should not be signing up for truckers would back chequers. i wouldn't sign it if we were paid to
1:11 pm
do it, let alone money we should be spending on the nhs, police and schools. other brexiteers, senior conservatives who supported the leave campaign, they backed chequers. when will this come to a head? the tory party conference? is borisjohnson going head? the tory party conference? is boris johnson going to head? the tory party conference? is borisjohnson going to try to upstage the pro minister their? he has a huge following amongst the membership and whenever he speaks he will get a huge audience. there is a huge discontent in conservative party members over the so—called chequers proposals. they are only proposals. the meeting is holding a no deal summit meeting in september andi no deal summit meeting in september and i think she is going to have to make further comprises and concessions to the european union, further than the chequers proposals. i think that is going to be an veritable —— unpalatable and i hope
1:12 pm
that members will show their feelings by resigning. if we end up with a "no deal" brexit, would you be happy with that? it is world trade organisation terms. higher tariffs. it is the way we trade with most of the world. and oui’ trade with most of the world. and our trade with wto is growing faster than the european union. it doesn't mean it is forever. we could come back with a super cannon deal. we wouldn't have to pay the divorce bill payment. we would have a surplus of the goods we are importing, if we decide to impose tariffs. we don't have to, and a wto —— under wto rules. there wouldn't bea —— under wto rules. there wouldn't be a transition period. all that money could be spent on the nhs, the armed forces and the police. i think it would be tremendously popular
1:13 pm
with the public and i think it would allow us to do free trade deals across the world and have a proper, clea n across the world and have a proper, clean brexit. good to talk to you. thanks for being with us here. the government has been accused of failing to prepare for the potential impact which brexit could have on peace and security at the irish border. the chief constable of the police service of northern ireland, george hamilton says if the border were to return it would be exploited by criminals and terrorists. in an interview with the sunday times he says that some politicians don't understand the dangers — the government says it is considering his call for extra resources. our correspondent louise cullen is in belfast and explained more of the details. this isn't new from george hamilton, he's been telling the government of the past year they need to prepare for peace and security in northern ireland in the event of the border being resurrected. i think these remarks are being aired with an increasing amount of frustration, he said back
1:14 pm
injune the psni has a business plan to address these problems, he wants 400 more officers, more vehicles and equipment and no one is signing off on that and no one giving him an answer. the government has recognised there is a unique situation for the psni and says it is looking at his concerns because of that land border but george hamilton in this article, says 20 years after the good friday agreement, 600 days after the collapse of the assembly, there may be a feeling that although perhaps, the troubles may be regarded as resolved and things are quieter, they are still policing this border 24/7, he calls it a high threat border and says it's still very tricky to address the concerns but he fears some in government regard it as peripheral both geographically and in terms of impact. he says that's absolutely not the case, if the border is resurrected it will be exploited by criminals and
1:15 pm
terrorists, even such things as smuggling which he thinks the government may regard as small, that is the lifeblood of terrorist organisations and it needs to be planned for and anticipated. the tuc has said it will back the campaign for another public vote on brexit if the government doesn't secure a final deal. speaking on the bbc‘s andrew marr programme, the tuc‘s general secretary, frances o'grady, said the uk was in danger of crashing out of the eu, and called for more time for negotiations to take place. frances o'grady was also asked if unions supported a second vote on brexit. i want to serve notice to the prime minister today that if we don't get the deal that working people need then the tuc will be throwing ourfull weight behind a campaign for a popular vote so that people get a say on whether the deal is good enough or not because, you know, i'm a trade unionist. there is no way a trade unionist would negotiate a
1:16 pm
deal and not go back to their members. the headlines on bbc news. boris johnson attacks the prime minister's brexit plans saying she has wrapped the country in a suicide vest and handed the detonator to brussels. high drama at the us open as serena williams loses her cool and the final. rules which prevented some victims of crime from claiming compensation if they lived with their attacker are to scrapped. sport, and for a full round up from the bbc sport centre, here's holly hamilton. it should have been a sucker‘s night but it is serena williams who has been grabbing headlines after she accused the umpire of sexism and
1:17 pm
treating her unfairly. williams was cited by the official full three code violations, including getting coaching signals, breaking her racket and calling the umpire a thief, which cost her a game. i can't sit here and say i wouldn't say he's a thief because i thought he took the game from me but i've seen he took the game from me but i've seen other men call other umpires several things and i'm here fighting for women's rights and women's equality and for all kinds of stuff, and for me to say the fed for him to ta ke and for me to say the fed for him to take a and for me to say the fed for him to takea game, and for me to say the fed for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark. i mean, he's never took a game from a man because they said thief. for me it blows my mind but i'm going to continue to fight for women and fight for us to have equal... we should be able to ta ke have equal... we should be able to take our show it off without getting a fine. it is outrageous. ijust
1:18 pm
feel like the fact that i have to go through this is an example for the next person that has emotions and wa nts to next person that has emotions and wants to express themselves and want to bea wants to express themselves and want to be a strong woman. and they are going to be allowed to do that because of today. maybe it didn't work out for me but it will work out for the next person. more tears from naomi osaka as she accepted her first grand slam trophy. ceremony was met by a chorus of boos by home fans. for me it felt like a normal match, walking up to the net but it is serena on the other side and she me and it was awesome. when i step onto the court i feel like a different person. i am the court i feel like a different person. lam not the court i feel like a different person. i am not a serena fan, i'm just a tennis player. but when i come back her at the net... sorry. —— when i hugged her at the net... sorry. anyway. when i hugged heard
1:19 pm
at the net, i felt like a little kid again. the first japanese player to wind a grand slam. here are images of the fans. no doubt she is hoping it will be the first of many majors. and ryan giggs will name his squad tonight at ashley williams hasn't been included in the squad. they beat the republic of ireland 4—i. they will see the return of the star danish players after eight temporary agreement was reached in a row over commercial rights. ryan giggs says he won't underestimate them. we are prepared for a very good team. the top ten team. probably favourites in this group. so we are in fora tough favourites in this group. so we are in for a tough game. we will need, like i say, things we can work on.
1:20 pm
we need to do better. we'll do that on sunday. that is all the sport for now. a reminder of the website. stay up—to—date with england's progress on the third day of the fifth test at the oval. justin rose is leading going into the final round of the pga tour event. one shot clear of wayne mcilroy. four the moment, goodbye from the. —— goodbye from me. the four—time olympic gold medalist, sir mo farah, has claimed a record—beaking new victory as the only person to win the great north run five times. sir mo won the elite men's race in 59 minutes and 26 seconds. challenging sir mo was new zealand's jake robertson, who took second place. kenya's 2016 champion vivian cheruiyot took victory in the women's event, while britain's david weir was first across the finish line in the men's wheelchair race. rules which prevent some victims of crime
1:21 pm
from being compensated if they lived with their attacker are being scrapped by the ministry ofjustice. the "same roof rule" was changed in 1979, but not retrospectively, meaning victims from before that time have been refused payouts. last year, more than a £150million pounds was paid out by the scheme. here's our home affairs correspondent, danny shaw. after a violent crime, what happens to the victims? for over 50 years, they have been able to claim compensation under a scheme funded by the state. but the government says the system needs modernising to reflect the changing nature of crime, so it is starting a review. the criminal injuries compensation scheme review will examine the two—year time limit on bringing claims, if people with convictions for certain offences should be barred from compensation, and whether sexual grooming victims should be able to make claims. currently, they can't.
1:22 pm
following a court case this summer, ministers are also promising to scrap the so—called same roof rule. it blocks compensation claims from victims who lived with their attacker before 1979. last year's terror attacks highlighted concerns about compensation for victims who had suffered many different types of injury. so the review will look at whether payments are set at the right level. whitehall budgets are tight. the review will consider if the compensation scheme is sustainable and if the proposed changes are affordable. danny shaw, bbc news. polls have opened in sweden in a general election dominated by the rise of an anti—immigration party. the nationalist sweden democrats stand a good chance of becoming the second biggest party in parliament. their campaigning has focused on immigration and crime. the social democrat prime minister, stefan lofven, was spotted on his way to the polling booth this morning and answered questions on the prospect of a good showing for the sweden democrats,
1:23 pm
a party he's previously accused of spreading extremism. are you feeling worried? are you worried about the future direction of this country? i am very concerned, of course. this is important. either we stay with a decent democracy or we choose another path. north korea has held a military parade to mark its seventieth anniversary without displaying intercontinental ballistic missiles. there were tanks, weapons and thousands of goose—stepping soldiers parading through the streets of pyongyang to show their devotion to their leader, kim jong—un. the parade comes at a sensitive time as efforts to ease tensions with the united states have stalled. the british star, olivia colman, has been named
1:24 pm
best actress at this year's venice film festival for her portrayal of queen anne in "the favourite", which is due for release in the uk next year. the festival's top award — the golden lion — went to a black—and—white spanish—language drama called "roma". it brings netflix its first major festival victory and seals the online streaming company's reputation as a big name in arthouse movies. laura westbrook reports. alfonso cuaron's roma is a deeply personal black—and—white memoir. it was inspired by his childhood in the roma district of mexico city and the film seems to have inspired thejudges, too. alfonso cuaron for roma. taking the top prize at the venice film festival. it was a decision that was reached entirely unanimously by the entire jury. so 9—0. i am the queen.
1:25 pm
but you are mad. the favourite, which, like roma, focuses predominantly on female characters, took the grand jury prize. its star, olivia colman, received the best actress award for her portrayal of queen anne. best actor went to willem dafoe, who played vincent van gogh in the biopic at eternity‘s gate. despite stories about women dominating the festival, only one of the films was directed by a woman. jennifer kent took the specialjury prize for the nightingale, a revenge thriller set in 19th—century tasmania. and she made a plea in her acceptance speech. i would just also like to say to all those women out there wanting to make films, please go and do it, we need you. applause. however, the talk of the night was most certainly netflix. roma was one of six netflix
1:26 pm
films that premiered here and it is the first big win for the streaming service at a major festival. cannes banned netflix from its competition. the online giant has been attacked for its strategy of making films available for streaming on the same day they are released in cinemas. while some worry about what that would do to the movie industry, alfonso cuaron sees it as an opportunity. this is a film that is in black—and—white, in spanish and mixteco, in mexican. with no recognisable actors or stars. and they are giving a huge, huge international push for this film. releasing it both streaming and also theatrical. not any company does that. as the conversation about the future of film continues, what does seem certain is that we will hear more about roma as the awards season approaches. nora westbrook, bbc news. time for a look at the weather.
1:27 pm
the after the grey and damp weather this morning, it looks like the weather is going to improve for us later on today. it has been a pretty grey start and some rain around. very breezy to. if anything it will get more windy across scotland later today and into tonight. this low pressure in between the uk and iceland is barrelling throughjust to the north—west of our neighbourhood, sending strong wind and frequent showers stop to the south, the weather is much quieter. it is looking beautiful on the south coast. breezy around the coast and also inland but plenty of sunshine on the way. 23 in london. a scattering of show is almost everywhere through the midlands and more frequent in the north of northern ireland. across scotland as well. gusty wind. in scotland they
1:28 pm
could exceed 50 mph in places, the closer you are to be low—pressure the stronger the wind. a really blustery night with frequent showers rattling through and rattling our windows as well. tonight that low moves to the north. to the south we got clearer skies. the wind dropping out by the end of the night. 13 is the overnight low in london, 12 degrees in edinburgh and maybe nine in newcastle. tomorrow starts off pretty bright. still sounds showers around in scotland but generally speaking a good start to the day. then later, from lunchtime onwards, it clouds over across the north—west with rain on the way for belfast and glasgow. the south should stay dry. temperatures getting up to 22 degrees. on tuesday this weather front slicing the ocean, slicing the atmosphere and two areas of whether happening, the ying and yang. we
1:29 pm
have the warm air wafting in from the mediterranean and cooler air currents from the north atlantic. look at that in northern ireland and scotland, but in the south we have warmer weather. we could be seeing temperatures in the mid—20s in the south of the country. a little bit cooler the following day. in the north all the while we will have a lot more cloud. good afternoon. senior conservatives have criticised boris johnson for saying that theresa may's brexit policy has "wrapped a suicide vest" around the british consitution, and "handed the detonator" to the eu. the foreign office minister sir alan duncan has described the comment as "one of the most disgusting moments" in british politics. our political correspondent helen catt reports. borisjohnson is usually boris johnson is usually at borisjohnson is usually at home in the spotlight. but with divisions over brexit and his leadership ambitions, he may have had more than
1:30 pm
just the cricket on his mind yesterday. he appeared to get a mixed reception. borisjohnson's rarely been out of the headlines this week. this morning there were further allegations about his personal life. but he chose to use an article in the mail on sunday to dropa an article in the mail on sunday to drop a bombshell. he claimed through a backstop proposal for drop a bombshell. he claimed through a backstop proposalfor the irish border... the form and foreign secretary's language brought a furious response from a minister he worked alongside until his resignation injuly. sir alan duncan said for him to say the pm's view is like that of a suicide bomber is too much. some of his former cabinet colleagues have stopped short of criticising the man focusing instead on his tone. stopped short of criticising the man focusing instead on his tonelj think there are much better ways to
1:31 pm
articulate your differences, and i think it's a reminderfor all of articulate your differences, and i think it's a reminder for all of us in public policy, whatever political party we represent, to use measured language. i think that's what the public want to see. supporters of borisjohnson public want to see. supporters of boris johnson have public want to see. supporters of borisjohnson have defended him.|j think boris says it as he sees it andl think boris says it as he sees it and i think it's how a lot of people see it but very few dare to call it. he's speaks truth to power and are not surprised they resent that and there's a backlash. boris johnson's star status in the party has been based on his ability to appeal to voters. the real test will be not how his comments are received in westminster, but beyond. the trade unions have said they will back the campaign for a referendum on the final brexit deal, if the government fails to secure an agreement that protects jobs and the economy. the tuc general secretary frances o'grady warned that crashing out of the eu without a deal would be an "absolute disaster" for workers. today, i'm giving the prime
1:32 pm
minister fair warning. i am serving notice that if her deal doesn't deliver for working people, if it doesn't protectjobs, rights at work and peace in northern ireland, then the tuc will throw our weight behind the call for a vote on the terms of the deal. our politicial correspondent iain watson is in manchester, where the unions are holding their annual conference. what are they saying about a second referendum, how significant is that? i think it's significant because frances o'grady the leader of the tuc knows not every union wants a new referendum. she was very clear there are circumstances which would trigger it if the deal coming back from brussels is unacceptable. for example, if the prime minister
1:33 pm
doesn't extend the talks to try to get a better deal. nonetheless, listen to that language. putting her full weight behind the popular vote. but will put pressure on the labour leadership. there is pressure on jeremy corbyn to debate this in a couple of weeks at their conference, for labour to harden its position on the idea of a new referendum on the eu. having the leader of the trade union movement representing some of the big trade unions at that labour conference saying they are prepared to campaign to get the referendum i think is significant. not every trade union agrees. we spoke to the leader of the rail union the rmt who backed brexit and he warned his fellow trade unionists that quite simply something which may be a new vote on a final deal will look potentially like the tuc is ignoring the will of the people. he said that frances o'grady and her colleagues, labour if they adopt the position too, would be playing with fire. thank you.
1:34 pm
a group representing religious education teachers and faith organisations has called for big changes to the way the subject is taught in england. the commission for religious education says children should learn about other beliefs such as atheism and humanism, as well as the main faiths, to better reflect modern britain. north korea has staged a military parade to mark its 70th anniversary. in contrast with previous years, it did not show off its long—range missiles, developed with the potential to carry nuclear warheads. the parade comes at a sensitive time, as efforts to ease tensions with the united states have stalled. laura bicker reports from seoul. the soldiers marched with their usual zeal, a discipline display perfected after months of painful practice. it is meant to show devotion. these pilots certainly gave it their all. but there was something missing from kim jong—un's parade. he may have rolled out
1:35 pm
the tanks and artillery, but there was no sign of intercontinental ballistic missiles — the subject of international sanctions. this less provocative display reflects mr kim's recent charm offensive. he's written another letter to the us president to try to get talks back on track. and, once again, here he is playing the diplomat — this time showing off his friendship with china, saluting the crowds with president xi's envoy. but the invited cameras are told where to point amidst the waving pyongyang elite. the bbc wasn't invited to pyongyang but we spoke to north korean defectors who took part in past events. translation: it really was a painful experience. people suffered but even the party officials suffered. we had to guarantee the success of the ceremony from the
1:36 pm
beginning to the end. this was days and days of pain and suffering. outside the city, there are fears north korea is on the verge of a food crisis, as crops fail after a heatwave. just like the missiles, there's so much hidden from view, and until that changes, the international community may find it difficult to trust. laura bicker, bbc news, in seoul. people in sweden are voting in a general election, with a far right anti—immigration party expected to make large gains. polls suggest the sweden democrats could become the second largest party in parliament. their popularity has risen since sweden accepted tens of thousands of immigrants following the 2015 migrant crisis. stars of the tennis world have been reacting to the controversial women's final of the us open, which serena williams lost to japan's naomi osaka. the match was overshadowed by a series of furious outbursts from williams, in which she accused the umpire of sexism, as well as calling him "a thief" and "a liar".
1:37 pm
our sports correspondent patrick gearey reports. you owe me an apology. you owe me an apology! i have never cheated in my life. i have a daughter, i stand for what is right for her. this was not the story tennis wanted or expected. serena williams furious at being warned for receiving coaching, then penalised again for verbal abuse of the umpire. all this in a match she'd hoped would take her to grand slam 24. it cruelly overshadowed a sensational victory for 20—year—old naomi osaka, playing in a final she'd only dreamed of and outclassing a player she'd idolised as a girl. serena williams' journey back from childbirth and life—threatening blood clots just a year ago is remarkable in itself, but when this was interpreted as coaching, her fury grew through the second set. you are the liar. you stole a point from me. you're a thief, too.
1:38 pm
the escalating row brought in the referees, then cost williams again, leaving osaka an awkward bystander in all of this, serving for the title. i've seen other men call umpires several things and i'm here are fighting for women's rights and women's equality and all kinds of stuff. for me to say thief and to him to take a game, it may be the like it was a sexist remark. him to take a game, it may be the like it was a sexist remarklj him to take a game, it may be the like it was a sexist remark. i don't know what happened on the court, so, for me, i'm always going to remember the serena but i love. it doesn't change anything for me. her proudest day tinged with no little sadness. patrick gearey, bbc news. tens of thousands of people have taken part in the great north run — a half marathon stretching from newcastle to south shields. sir mo farah has become the first man to win the men's elite race five times. he also set a new course record. organisers said 57 thousand people took part in the event. you can see more on all of today's
