because they didn't like the initial results. in the end that might not be so good for democracy. from that point, theresa may might be right but another big story in the ft today, saying she has told business she once continuing frictionless trade. if she wants that, britain needs to stay in the single market and customs union, in effect membership without being a member. i can see that's probably about the best that can be done right now. the front page of the metro, fourth fatal knife attack in five days. some startling statistics about how in february london overtook new york in terms of its murder rate, this kind of thing. knife control is getting out of control again, a huge story for london four years —— knife crime. we've talked about it this morning because it's a terrible situation —— for london for years. 15—year—old boy, a talented artist,

continuing to bring outbreaks of rain. this will ease from northern ireland through the morning and things get dry across wales and south—west england and outbreaks of rain continue to push their way north and eastwards across scotland as this too pulls away. behind it, we'll see the cloud thinning and breaking. bright and sunny spells and a scattering of showers, but very mild for the early part of november. temperatures generally between 10 and 15 celsius, up to 16 or 17 in east anglia and south—east england. after the windy conditions of the weekend, a gentler south or south—easterly breeze through monday afternoon. we'll keep that gentle breeze as we go on through the evening. for many, it will be dry with clear spells. a bit of patchy rain continuing across parts of northern ireland, western scotland, maybe the far south—west of england. but if you do have plans for firework or bonfire displays on monday evening, for most, it will be dry, it will be mild and there'll be a gentle locally moderate breeze.
