tv The Papers BBC News November 10, 2018 11:30pm-11:46pm GMT
think frog by the end of the week. -- fog. those and the hello. this is bbc news with carol walker. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment — first the headlines. one of the key commemorations to mark a hundred years since the end of the first world war has taken place in the north of paris. some 70 world leaders are in france for the centenary senior members of the royal family and prime minister theresa may attend a festival of rememberance at the royal albert hall the former transport minister, jojohnson, says more ministers may resign over the prime minister's brexit plans and voters were sold a ‘false prospectus‘ in the referendum. four people — including a 1—year—old child — have died when a people carrier was hit by a car in sheffield — that had earlier been pursued by police.
thousands of leicester city fans have taken part in a memorial walk in honour of those killed in the helicopter crash outside the club's stadium two weeks ago hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are anne ashworth, associate editor at the times, and the author and journalist yasmin alibhai—brown. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the observer leads with criticism of the prime minister's brexit deal from former education secretary justine greening, who said the plans are ‘the biggest giveaway of sovereignty in modern times. the sunday times says eu officials have rejected theresa may's plan, sparking fears that negotiations have broken down with little time to go. and the sunday telegraph warns that conservative backbenchers
and dup mps will vote down mrs may's deal even if it is supported by her cabinet. armistice day is the focus of the front page of the sunday express. and that's the front page story for the mail on sunday as well. stories but once again, brexit grabbing many of the big headlines in the sunday times saying theresa may's brexit deal crashes. it looks from the story as if mrs may thought she was going to get a get out of jail free she was going to get a get out of jailfree card. she was going to get a get out of jail free card. once we left, a period where we were bound by the customs union and she thought she had negotiated a mechanism by which we could leave that at will and it seems as if the eu has blocked it.
at the end of this story, number 10 is saying, this isjust at the end of this story, number 10 is saying, this is just what end—stage negotiations look like. i don't think we can feel quite that confident because it looks as if this is yet another way in which mps will not accept the deal, even if the cabinet gives its assent next week. tory mps are worried as there isa week. tory mps are worried as there is a mechanism, we will be stuck in a customs union for the foreseeable future. the no deal lot in my view are unhinged because do they really think about the consequences? there has got to be a gradual... it is like a divorce. it doesn'tjust end, it takes time to get the finances separate and all about. but the problem is, there was an assumption i think made by those supporting brexit in particular that whatever
we wa nted brexit in particular that whatever we wanted would be given us and the eu is 27 countries, they are not going to give us what we want. that is the first obstacle and then it is the cabinet. apparently they are draining away. then there is parliament. i don't know how or what is going to happen next. these make very depressing readings, these headlines. it looks as if mps are hardening their stance and leavers and remainers are coming together in and remainers are coming together in a kind of agreement that the deal as proposed means vasser lynch, in the words ofjo johnson, that proposed means vasser lynch, in the words ofjojohnson, that we would be in thrall. —— vassalage. meanwhile, the eu stance is hardening and it's difficult to see where the give and copper mines is going to happen which would enable some sort of deal to take place all
we just crash out. jo johnson has also said quite dramatically that the whole initial 2016 referendum was sold to people on a false prospectus in his words and of course, prospectus in his words and of course , one prospectus in his words and of course, one remembers he was having a false prospectus, it was his brother. i would love to spend christmas with the johnsons. brother. i would love to spend christmas with the johnsonsm brother. i would love to spend christmas with the johnsons. if we look at the observer, top tory says mayes handing power to the eu. justine greening agreeing withjo johnson. it seems as if suddenly there is a realisation that we are going to be disempowered by this move and the eu will have all the cards. and there doesn't seem to be a way in which we could exit from that. we don't seem to have preferred it. what i don't
understand is, jo johnson preferred it. what i don't understand is, jojohnson was preferred it. what i don't understand is, jo johnson was a remainerand they are understand is, jo johnson was a remainer and they are talking in these terms and this vocabulary of vassalage. that is confusing me totally. if you are trying to seek clarity here... don't even try. it is incoherent and chaotic and one sta rts is incoherent and chaotic and one starts to fear a constitutional crisis. even if mrs makin gets some kind of deal, the cabinet, i can't see mps getting behind it unless there is some rabbit out of a hat thatis there is some rabbit out of a hat that is going to emerge which will clarify. indeed, on that point, the sunday telegraph was a story which seems to be reinforcing mat, saying
that it believes mps will block theresa may's brexit plans. so depending on whether the sunday times is right. she may not have a deal to put to parliament. the sunday telegraph does suggest she will have real problems. sunday telegraph does suggest she will have real problemslj sunday telegraph does suggest she will have real problems. i really don't envy her. i sometimes feel this fairly friendless woman, one has two of how she was fought on and oi'i has two of how she was fought on and on that surely a moment comes when she realises that none of what she thought was easily done is going to happen. david davis speaking up, all these other brexit supporters speaking up, as if it is the easiest and most unproblematic exit. i have i'io and most unproblematic exit. i have no idea what she will do but she has surprised us in the past. she does surprises by her resilience but
there is a paragraph in the sunday telegraph saying senior government figures are discussing the possibility of a new leader taking over and resetting the negotiations, if only it were that simple, which would apparently kicked the candour that further down the road and then we would have some kind of resolution. there was that figure, who will be the person? i think it came across extraordinarily well. do you think is the air apparent? there is the long gameplaying. boris is not going to be it so maybe jo johnson will be. this constitutional crisis. it theresa may comes to the commons and plan is to beat it... prince charles will have a brief moment in —— a brief moment of monarchy taking over because the politicians can't do this job. it's extraordinary. it's the most
extraordinary. it's the most extraordinary moment. the hardening of the eu stamps. it might be in their interest, given the other pressures within the eu, the problems in italy, the rise of nationalism, to maybe try and tidy sum of this out of the way so they can safeguard their structures. sum of this out of the way so they can safeguard their structuresm was never going to be easy. this isn't a done deal. they have their owi'i isn't a done deal. they have their own priorities. also a very long marriage. we were sold again, no, it's going to be easy, all we have to do is walk out and make them. it just isn't going to work. let's look at some of the other stories around, the telegraph says british prisoners are supplying to implant microchips in staff. the sort of things i have in my cocker spaniel. isn't it great. there is a story on this
front pages it is at least making a smile because this one is quite extraordinary, in order to safeguard trade secrets and whatever, they would implant microchips in staff. when does this happen, on your first aid work? what kind of permission would you to get and how would the microchip enabled them to ensure that you are not taking trade secrets or indeed... is this even legal? i think it's terrible. it's an awful suggestion, especially as we now have a legally guaranteed protection of whistleblowers and sometimes, staff has to be disloyal to the company or institution in order to change things that are going on. like you said, you get a job, but will they microchip you? how many people will walk out and say, no thanks? do you get to take
it out on holiday? or in bed? so the company can track your every move.|j mean, this is an extraordinary story but apparently it's a business that is offering this so who knows what next. one of the other big stories reflected in several of the newspapers, of course, is the centenary newspapers, of course, is the ce nte nary of newspapers, of course, is the centenary of the armistice and the observer has this very striking picture of angela merkel and emmanuel macron in one of these very big events yesterday. a really evocative picture. it's a great front—page picture, those two great europeans, the multilateral lists coming together in that significant moment, providing each other with an awful lot of comfort. you can see there is a real political friendship there. in an eu where nationalism is
rising and indeed were the other great world leader, trump, would not go to see the american war cemetery because the weather was inclement. it makes me feel even sadder that we are leaving your up, that this european togetherness which was exactly what the war meant, never again, that we would make a different kind of your and i'm so sad that we didn't use that emotional force, and they've got it. and we don't. and they are, in angela merkel‘s case at least, the real big players in europe. but it's like they understood the emotion of what the eu is about and i don't think most people in this country everdid. think most people in this country ever did. but if that role in keeping peace in europe that the eu
played, had been promoted during the campaign, people would have declared thatis campaign, people would have declared that is yet more project there. there became a whole lot of topics that it wasn't 0k to discuss. when historians come to write it... the remainers didn't use emotions. that story would have been different. it wasn't about loss ofjobs or the practical numbers but that emotional thing about why it was set out. david cameron did talk about the threat to the peace and security of europe. but in a very democratic way. there were some wonderful posters evoking this moment when europe decided to be in different place from what it had been during two horrible walled wars. and i think the remainers really missed a trick and didn't do that. what i think is interesting, in none of these stories do they give you any
sense as to whether we are any closer to a people's vote, a second referendum. maybe in all this frenzy, that is not being talked about but one wonders whether that is coming closer, whether or not that would be more dissent. from me, as the remainerand that would be more dissent. from me, as the remainer and a believer in people's vote, the way labour is reacting and still, the labour leader, he is a brexiteraunties reacting and still, the labour leader, he is a brexiter aunties had to pretend not to be. i don't know what the effect would be. let's look at the sunday express which looks at the commemorations for the armistice. we must neverforget, is the headline. a striking image on the headline. a striking image on the front page there.|j the headline. a striking image on the front page there. i think it's good to be reminded what this weekend is all about, setting politics aside and remembering the
awful events of the great war and the nation i suspect will not be thinking so much about bread is it but looking at the armistice, the services, the processions and taking a moment to pause and remember what those people did. and they came from around the world and they brought nations together. there were soldiers from every nation, europe as well is abroad. again, the multilateral as you are talking about, this is a war where people came together.
