encouraged. we have been waiting for some sort of move from the government, it is long—awaited the paper on what will happen with immigration and part of the delay has been waiting for this report that was commissioned by the former home secretary amber rudd. and there was a suggestion that amber rudd had been looking for this report to do something in particular with regards to looking into european migration and actually it is kind of knock on what was expected —— not done what was expected, but it has caused quite backlash, concern about industry and many sectors that do need lower skilled workers post brexit and very concerned about who will take thejobs brexit and very concerned about who will take the jobs that are needed. quite strong language from concerned parties on that. absolutely. because asjoe says, it is unexpectedly helpful to theresa may in that she wants a fairly restrictive approach to immigration after brexit. she doesn't want to give preferential access to our labour market to the
eu, and this report backs her up in that and that is causing backlash which is on the front of the guardian and my own independent, from businesses who say they need this big pool of unskilled, relatively low paid work, and the nhs and public services will grind toa nhs and public services will grind to a halt if they don't have them. where does it lead you think the actual decision—making process because nearly this could still be a pa rt because nearly this could still be a part of the negotiations, couldn't it? this is a recommendation, not absolutely set in stone. that is what is interesting, the suggestion from the ft that theresa may is going to set out proposals for the cabinet to approve where actually this is still a fundamental part of the european brexit negotiations as it were, and therefore the idea that she will somehow agree something else in advance almost seems slightly odd because you would have
thought it is about actually seeing what the responses from europe and looking at what is on the table. the timing is interesting because she is going to salzburg tomorrow, and presumably talking to other european leaders, although it is not actually a negotiation, but you would think there'll be some talk in the margins. she has not actually set out the british government's position yet. john, staying with you and salzburg because the front of the telegraph refers to very dinner. the endgame begin in salzburg. she will have ten minutes basically uninterrupted, isn't she? you get longer on dragon's den, actually. uninterrupted, isn't she? you get longer on dragon's den, actuallym isa longer on dragon's den, actuallym is a strange way to proceed with these negotiations. is peter foster who is a very good europe editor of the telegraph, said she will get ten minutes, they will listen to what she has to say but there'll be no discussion or negotiation because would cross michel barnier's lines
of authority because he is the chief negotiator. and no one wants to offend him. which isjust the killer. —— which isjust what you yield —— peculiar. killer. —— which isjust what you yield -- peculiar. she'll be outraged as to why she's going on away for ten minutes. the rest have been more sanjin prcic —— achieved out of that particular even than ten minutes of setting out your store, but the briefing around this i think is really unhelpful because it does just make it look like theresa may is kind popping in and isjust talking to a bunch of people and there's not anything really meaningful happening and it seems, it is very almost set up for her to fail whereas actually this week the narrative that the government have been putting out is very much about brexit, it is happening, we are in control. there have been signs that michel barnier has been sounding much more conciliatory, suggesting the european union might move on the average border. he has not actually
said anything new today, but his tone has been much more flexible. let's talk about the other telegraph story. this is the lead for them tomorrow, be proud of council houses says theresa may. before she goes to salzburg she has things to say about social housing. i'm not completely convinced this is the headline that those who read the story would be looking for. it is... it feels very unconservative, the party of opportunity and aspiration, the idea that to some extent you could read this if you just glanced across the front page of the telegraph and did not read and probably didn't hear the speech theresa may is making tomorrow that this story refers to, it would sort of suggest that what she's suggesting is people should be proud to live in council homes and that there is no sense of people wanting to do anything else, live anywhere also, on any homes, a real break away from the factory era, but actually i think there is some
detail he in here about a pledged to spend an extra 2 billion on social housing and suggest that politicians in society should stop looking down on those who live in council houses which i think is right to be said, but at the same time this is a massive reversal around there are not enough homes for people. there certainly aren't enough —— aren't enough council homes but going back to the story before, if we don't have low skilled workers there'll not be any council homes because there will not be enough homes being built. the government has an ambitious target of 300,000 homes per year which of their missing by a mile at the moment. this is not a trend that be will —— will be her first overnight. she is right. it's a curious emphasis that there is this id should be proud of living and social from the party of —— idea that you should be proud of living in social housing, from the party of margaret thatcher's selling of council homes. it is absolutely right that you cannot solve the housing problem in this country without building for social housing.
it is interesting that theresa may is going for this shift of emphasis, but it does not really deliver the houses that are actually needed. john, staying with you. we have been talking a lot about the conservatives in the context of brexit. let's talk about labour for a moment and brexit courtesy of the guardian and the fact that here. we are told came by close to stepping away from the shadow cabinet. an interesting story in the guardian buried in, they have a very long analysis of labour's development of the position on brexit and at one point earlier this year there was a meeting when kier starmer was trying to persuade jeremy corbyn to move the labour pa rty's to persuade jeremy corbyn to move the labour party's policy to favour being inside a customs union with the u, which is not the government's policy and that would have been a sharp break and that is what happened, but the labour policy on
brexit is significantly different from the government on that point, butjeremy from the government on that point, but jeremy corbyn was very reluctant to make that move and apparently because he did not want to be seen to be getting into the blairites in the party, and there was a bit of a bust up in private although i don't think keir starmer actually threatened to resign.|j think keir starmer actually threatened to resign. i was wondering about the language. i know there is more coverage inside and we have managed to access those pages as well, but the phrase was pushed to the brink of resignation, what does that mean? i think he got quite crossed. we have all had a bad day, one of those days where we feel i'm not sure i want to continue doing this or we have written one of those e—mails we do not send. apparently there was a suggestion he was visibly angry, and it's a great piece from heather stewart. we don't really see much about that sort of behind the scenes arguments. it is a lwa ys behind the scenes arguments. it is always with a focus particularly around brexit the tory divisions and it's a really interesting... heather
has gone into a lot of detail about how this particular meeting unfolded and that suggestion ofjeremy corbyn‘s core team had sight of a paper in advance thatjeremy corbyn would present and it sounds as if the rope was eventually pulled from underneath keir starmer, and he visibly reacted in the room to it —— the rug was essentially pulled from underneath keir starmer. and the labour party's position is that we should be in customers union with the eu, and theresa may is being pushed in that direction by the negotiations and the sources around her. there is a line which sums up labour's difficulties. the party's electoral fortunes have long depended on bridging the gap between handset and hull. that is precisely the balancing act germain corbyn pulled up at the last election. he was able to get leave voters and remain voters to support the labour
party and he does not really want to offe nd party and he does not really want to offend either side too much. the front of the telegraph, back to the telegraph. a photograph of richard madden, star of bodyguard on the front. we have already urged you not to give us too many spoilers, for those who have not caught up yet, but what. .. this those who have not caught up yet, but what... this is about in links possibly pitching it, isn't that? absolutely —— possibly pitching it, isn't that? absolutely -- about net flicks possibly pitching it. acquiring i should say, stubbly you are on the bbc. there's something quite phenomenal about this particular series, it is only six parts, it is astonishing that this has really gripped people, there has been... i'm on twitter, part of a group that share conspiracy theories about what on earth has gone on, but this is a particular picture that was released today, which is i think there is a
suggestion this is a particular footage that people have not seen before. actually, the story itself is around the fact that netflix have acquired the international rights to the drama and that this whole issue of the second season... which netflix might acquire. is a big deal and it is great to the british drama, great to see something... won't netflix ruin it? is what they do. lin i'm notan won't netflix ruin it? is what they do. lin i'm not an expert but they put the world series up i'm not an adverb but they put the whole series oi'i adverb but they put the whole series on demand and stream. this is monday evening, millions of watch. in the office very little gets done in my office very little gets done in my office with clean about the hours of 9-930 office with clean about the hours of 9—930 when everyone is discussing what happened. if netflix put it all up what happened. if netflix put it all up in one big joke than it destroys that. that was a spoiler free conversation for which we are hugely grateful. that's it for the papers tonight. we are back at 1130 and don't forget
you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — 7 days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. the bbc news at 11 is coming up. thank you. we have very blustery weather coming our way over the next 12—18 hours or so our way over the next 12—18 hours or so courtesy of storm ali that will bring strong winds to scotland and northern ireland but heavy rain around over the next couple of days that could cause problems. first of all ali, this area of cloudy can see on the satellite picture, she's passing beneath a very powerful hundreds 75 mile an hour atlantic jet stream and that is what is starting to develop the storm. as
ali passes to the northern side of the jet that is where we start is the jet that is where we start is the low—pressure deepened rapidly, thatis the low—pressure deepened rapidly, that is going on right now. ali arriving later tonight across the western parts. before that a bit of rainfor western parts. before that a bit of rain for scotland, little pushing eastward across england and wales, south—westerly winds matt bush —— picking up so a mild night. temperatures ii—igd. ali comes through wednesday, squeezing the isobars, quite —— type pressure rate bringing strong winds across northern ireland into central and southern parts of scotland and that is what the met office have issued this amber wind warning for the areas, when does reaching 80 mph and perhaps also parts of thailand and the west miles —— western isles get pretty close —— thailand. john hammond to bring down tree branches, perhaps old trees and northern ireland and a similar story in scotla nd ireland and a similar story in scotland as well with the strongest winds and northern ireland coming through early in the morning, the strongest wave going through scotla nd strongest wave going through scotland around the middle part of the day. trees are down, you can
imagine transport attractions and certainly the bridges are likely to run with speed limits on them, perhaps restrictions to high sided vehicles, heavy rain feeling quite cold, through the southeast sunshine, stills and warmth across eastern areas of england, a band of rain slowly pushing in. into thursday another area low—pressure developing through the southwest of the uk. this one initially will be bringing heavy rain with it, across wales and also country of the hills could pick up around 80—100 mm of rain, some leading seems likely from that. still warm across the southeast england, a date further north and scotland rain probably pushing back into northern ireland later in the day but it gets very windy again thursday night. this time across other parts of england with gales quite likely on with that heavy rain. the rain clears out friday and saturday, quieter days although probably some rain on saturday towards the southwest. that is your weather. this is bbc news. the headlines at 11:00: a government—commissioned report says it should be easier
for highly—skilled workers to the move to the uk after brexit but those from the eu shouldn't get preference. the european union's lead brexit negotiator, michel barnier, says the eu is ready to improve its proposal on how the irish border can be managed after brexit the reservists who died during an sas march in the brecon beacons — two officers in charge of safety are cleared of negligence. china has hit back at the united states, announcing new tariffs on $60 billion worth of american imports in the escalating trade war between the two countries. in the champions league, a dramatic night and a grandstand finish at anfield.
