11:30 pm
the north-west late on works in from the north—west late on tuesday and overnight into wednesday, courtesy of the next frontal system heading in from the atlantic. that will bring some rain wednesday morning across parts of northern ireland, perhaps scotland, north—west england as well. further south across england and wales, you are likely to stay dry through the day on wednesday, with some sunshine around as well, and with a south—westerly breeze it will feel pretty mild for the time of year. 14 oi’ pretty mild for the time of year. 14 or 15 degrees. further north around about 14 or 15 degrees. and then later this week, from midweek onwards, things are settling down across the country. things are mainly dry and also pretty mild as well. so for wednesday night with still got a bit of rain in the north—west but what will start to see as we head through the thursday is this area of high pressure across the near continent exerting more of an influence across the uk. as it does so, it will bring the south—westerly winds. once again, the air with us on thursday could be the air with us on thursday could be the warmest day of the week. some uncertainty about how quickly this low cloud, mist and fog clears and birds away, but where it does so we
11:31 pm
could see 17 degrees or so. cooler way you keep more mist, fog and low cloud through the day. but largely dry, and the theme continues into friday as well. very similar day with high pressure and southerly wind. it is going to be dry across the country, but they could well be some mist and fog and low cloud that slowly breaks up through the day. one or two areas perhaps sticking with us through those grey skies, still remaining mild, and as we look towards the end of the week, high pressure starts to nudge its way in from the east. so again that theme continues into saturday. dry, settled weather, some mist and fog which had slowly left through the day. we will start to see a little bit of a change in wind direction coming from a more easterly direction, so not quite as mild. still above average for the time of year through the course of the weekend. with a high pressure dominating this weekend, we have got the mild weather set to continue, but we could well see some mist, some lingering fog and perhaps some low cloud through the weekend as
11:32 pm
well. and then into next week a su btle well. and then into next week a subtle change. this jetstream well. and then into next week a subtle change. thisjetstream is driving the winds in the upper atmosphere, well to the north of the uk, plunging south across the south—east of europe. so high pressure very much dominating but you will notice that high pressure at the centre of it nudging a little bit further eastwards to become situated across the uk. that will meana situated across the uk. that will mean a slight change in wind direction is likely through next week. we start to draw in this reads from more of an easterly direction, but the blue colour is not far away through the course of next week. it is still looking largely dry, with high pressure in charge, but next week things are set to turn a little bit cooler. we could see some fog and also some frost returning. goodbye. hello. this is bbc news with sean ley. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment, first the headlines: just days to agree a brexit deal, the pressure builds on the prime minister. in a speech tonight, she says both sides were working through the night to reach
11:33 pm
a deal, but that she wouldn't sign up to an agreement at any cost. a couple who named their baby after adolf hitler have been found guilty of belonging to the banned neo—nazi group, national action. a third man was also convicted today. the three will be sentenced in december. as saudi coaliton and government forces advance on the port of hudaydah and rebel houthi fighters dig in, the united nations warns of catastrophic consequences for millions, as yemen's war intensifies. tonight the foreign secretary is in saudi arabia for talks aimed at bringing about a ceasefire. tonight, jeremy hunt, the foreign secretary, in saudi arabia said he was hopeful about the prospects of bringing about a ceasefire. the death toll in the california wildfires reaches 31, with more than 200 people missing in what could become the state's deadliest fire ever. around a quarter of a million people have been forced to flee their homes. hello and welcome to our look ahead
11:34 pm
to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are polly mackenzie, who's director of the think tank, demos, and the conservative commentator and journalist, tim montgomerie. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the metro reports on the case of a couple who have been convicted of belonging to a neo—nazi terrorist group that aimed to spark a race war. the mail says former foreign secretary boris johnson is urging the uk to offer asylum to a pakistani christian who spent eight years in jail for blasphemy and was released from death row last month after she was cleared. the guardian says time is running out for the prime minister to reach a brexit deal with her eu counterparts in time for a november summit. the daily telegraph claims theresa may will be warned by senior eurosceptic cabinet ministers that leaving the eu without a deal, would be better than giving in to brussels demands on brexit. meanwhile, the times says
11:35 pm
mrs may publicly rebukes brussels for forcing the pace of a divorce deal as negotiators worked to have an agreement by wednesday. the daily express says the home secretary is facing calls to recruit 20,000 police officers to help tackle violent crime. the daily star has a story about lisa riley making a return to emmerdale after 17 years away from the soap. the headline in the mirror talks about the death in morocco of a britain from rabies. and the big picture on the daily mirror is shows some of the stars appearing in this year's i'm a celebrity, as the line—up is revealed. we won't be doing much on that, lisa riley has been away for so long, it used to be called emmerdale farm, maybe that's even further back! barnier is the pantomime villain of the coverage on the times. it isn't
11:36 pm
christmas yet! so close! devilish stuff, what's going on? the eu side, the negotiations are ongoing. there's a lot of civil servants on both sides with no doubt a lot of pizza boxes littering their tables. they were up until 3am yesterday, sunday night, pretty difficultjob. nobody makes very good or coherent decisions at that time in the morning! nevertheless, it's only legally binding, we don't need to worry! the europeans are saying if they want to call a summit for november in order to sign off this deal it needs to be done by wednesday. that is 24 hours from now basically? pretty close, it is all right, though, . .. who basically? pretty close, it is all right, though,... who knows! theresa may has said at the lord mayor's banquet tonight that she is saying this will not be an agreement at any
11:37 pm
cost, which to me is depressing because there isn't anyone anywhere in the country, not even the most ardent brexiteer, who is talking about any benefits to brexit any more. they're just talking about it not being a disaster and not at any cost. it doesn't feel like it's going to be an easy deal and even if she gets a deal, firstly it's only a withdrawal agreement, not a trade deal, that's another negotiation to come and she's got no guarantee of getting it through parliament. come and she's got no guarantee of getting it through parliamentlj think getting it through parliament.” think i agree with far too much of what polly has just said! think i agree with far too much of what polly hasjust said! on the front of the telegraph, we have stories getting quite close to the extent of which the cabinet, not just getting it through parliament, but cabinet first. it is one thing to get through this agreement with the late night, early morning meetings and unless we get an agreement in the next 24 hours we are looking at a month before eu leaders can ratify it. the cabinet,
11:38 pm
including her own brexit secratary, dominic raab, who, like david davis, has been sidelined in negotiations, is expressing real worries about what's currently on the table. the idea this can be resolved in the next 24 hours looks incredibly unlikely. i wonder what cabinet are up unlikely. i wonder what cabinet are up to, we have these stories doing the chequers deal, at the time we weren't told that, everyone had agreed, then boris johnson weren't told that, everyone had agreed, then borisjohnson and david davis walked. emma dollarmite what are they trying to do? protect there be occasions against it all going pear shaped or are they exercising control? —— what are they trying to do? jo johnson resigned, which means. . . do? jo johnson resigned, which means... he wasn't a brexiteer. he was a remainer originally, so she's losing that coalition of support. people are willing to brief against
11:39 pm
her. tim michael no better than me, but the logic prevails, they would rather brexit, which nobody thinks will deliver anything good any more that kim might know better than me. they would rather it went through and she was blamed for any mess or the hockey stick dip in the economy before we have the joy of the free trade deal —— tim michael no better than me. she is trapped in this gilded cage. if you have been to downing street, there is very little gilding! she is so there is very little gilding! she is so constrained about her room form and over and there's no great love oi’ and over and there's no great love or enthusiasm for her leadership any more, it must be hard. she is very dutiful, as everyone keeps noting, but she's about to come back with a terrible deal. the johnsons are typical, you've got the brexiteer, boris, and the remainer apologist,
11:40 pm
jojohnson, completely boris, and the remainer apologist, jo johnson, completely opposite sides of the debate and completely unsatisfied with what the prime minister's come up with. it's a compromise... it's not about pleasing all of the people all of the time, just some of the people some of the time. it's a compromise of making no one happy at all and to answer your question, that's what the cabinet are beginning to realise. we can't ratify a deal that will upset the country and parliament. what about the ambition next time round when there's a vacancy. next time round when there's a vacancy. a photograph of the prime minister looking very relaxed at the lord mayor's banquet. £350 best jo dress, i shall be your fashion correspondent! thank you, we appreciate it —— £350 dress. rememberthe appreciate it —— £350 dress. remember the cost of those trousers? of course i do. it did somehow stick
11:41 pm
in the memory. remembering the message. sorry to be boring. i was struck by her saying... it's not about me, i will do what's right for the country and it seemed a warning to people, there might have to be things you don't like but that will be my bestjudgement. this is the thing, think chequers will be a terrible horlicks of an agreement and i'm glad i'm not an mp because what would i do? even if i was unhappy with the deal she comes back with potentially, do i vote it down with potentially, do i vote it down with all the consequences, even though it is far from what i want, doi though it is far from what i want, do i vote it down with the possibility of them throwing the country into a no deal scenario? which, if 12 months or two years ago we had begun to prepare for, i would countenance but i don't think we're ready for it now. her emphasising these points about patriotism and britain's national interest... she's
11:42 pm
not going to sell this deal in its detail if she gets one to the parliament, she's going to sell it oi'i parliament, she's going to sell it on the fact that a national crisis could be around the corner if you don't accept. fundamentally she left it too late. she didn't spend two yea rs it too late. she didn't spend two years saying we need to build consensus, we need to bring remainers and brexiteers together, shejust said i'm going to offer the most purist ultimate brexit, told eve ryo ne most purist ultimate brexit, told everyone else they could go jump and hasn't delivered anything she promised, she's abandoned every red line so no wonder she's in a mess. brussels have noticed that. they've noticed the continual ability, if you wait long enough theresa may will move off her positions because she hasn't yet on the backstop, which is why we are in this position. yes, she has, the backstop to the backstop! i've lost touch with reality! let's move onto the front the daily mail. polly, as,
11:43 pm
asia bibi, extraordinary story, a campaigner was on explaining what happened, she drunk from some water when she was parched, she offered the day cup to someone else, she is said to have defiled it because she isa said to have defiled it because she is a christian, then she got into an argument, my christ died for your beliefs, what did mohammed do for you? that became a charge of blasphemy, she spent years on death row, she is out but now sheeds potentially still in trouble. row, she is out but now sheeds potentially still in troublem row, she is out but now sheeds potentially still in trouble. it is progress that she is free. increasingly people are campaigning, borisjohnson here, increasingly people are campaigning, boris johnson here, for us increasingly people are campaigning, borisjohnson here, for us to find a way without causing a diplomatic crisis of some sort to get her safely out of pakistan and to the uk. there's been an offerfrom italy. for me, while this is an individual case that is horrific, if
11:44 pm
there is a way for us to help her, thatis there is a way for us to help her, that is essential. the wider question of religious freedom, not just for christians, there's plenty of places in the world where muslims are persecuted, a variety of people, we have to make the case for religious freedom and the commonwealth ought to stand up for pretty basic values like that. pakistan is a member of the commonwealth and they‘ re just pakistan is a member of the commonwealth and they're just not making progress. i hope we do offer this woman refuge here. let's be clear, the subject of the mail front page is boris writing to the home office, but actually you get this lady safely to britain, but what about the british embassy in pakistan? we have seen the crowds of ugly... could be a very hostile reaction. we can't allow her to come here safely until we ensure british personnel are safe in pakistan for the backlash, so it's compensated.
11:45 pm
briefly, we have more to cover, what do you make of the role of imran khan as the new prime minister of pakistan, a man who a lot of people in the west but hopes in because of his own experience of living in the west, he lived a very western lifestyle for some time but still a pakistani man and a patriot for pakistan, somewhat how he might be able to help change the politics of the country —— somehow. maybe that was naive but in this case, it doesn't look like that.” was naive but in this case, it doesn't look like that. i was able, ata doesn't look like that. i was able, at a bbc world service presentation andl at a bbc world service presentation and i looked at the way he's part of and i looked at the way he's part of a newspaper industry revenue in pakistan from government advertising —— iwas at a. all pakistan from government advertising —— i was at a. all newspapers are being reviewed for their political and editorial positions as part of this decision about who continues to get revenue. he has introduced that since becoming the leader. not a good early sign of wear pakistan might be heading under his rule. polly, let's look at the front of
11:46 pm
the i. chancellor faces defeat on crack cocaine betting machines. this is odd, it's been knocking around for a while, we had a resignation over it not so long ago. there was this lengthy campaign to bring the maximum stake down to £2. the government reviewed and had another review and another review and it was so clear, they hadn't got and it was so clear, they hadn't got a majority, that parliament was so determined to see this done that the government had to cave in. then the minister resigned, the government said they hadn't slowed the timetable down, it was always going to ta ke timetable down, it was always going to take this long, the treasury said it needed to be delayed in order to replace the tax revenue with something else. they will have to back down, they don't have a majority. 90 mps from all the big political parties want the government to do something, and they will win. it is a peculiar thing, to
11:47 pm
have taken. visit the stubbornness of the chancellor? is it that they just didn't see it coming? it seems has been quite well flagged —— is it the stubbornness of the chancellor? there have been stories recently about how philip hammond, the chancellor, didn't keep the chief secretary of the treasury in his trust, in the loop. there is so much anxiety about theresa may. that is because she had pizza with boris johnson? pizza with andrea lets on. do we know what peter was served? nothing to italian —— andrea leadsome. i think perhaps if a few more people had been involved in some of these decisions, like on fixed betting machines, a few people might have warned mrs maher, he stood on the steps of downing street after he became prime minister and promised that you would take this
11:48 pm
policy to the poorest and most vulnerable people in society. if this isn't an example of very vulnerable people earning very damaged by an industry, then what is? you need to not drag your heels of this, and she has, and the chancellor has, and now successfully, philip hammond and theresa may have united remainers, brexiteers, saying they think this is wrong, and this could be the first government defeat on a budget measure in 30 years. it reminds me of the last days of the labour government. looking at the back of the times, you explain to us brilliantly, if i may say so, in the last paper review. can i ask you to do it again for those of us who were not with you last time? the times is talking about scientific research from cambridge university looking at 650,000 people saying that men and women think differently, but the
11:49 pm
important thing for us to understand is that group differences are not the same as individual differences. asi the same as individual differences. as i explained earlier, men are on average taller than women, and yet there are plenty of individual women who are taller than some individual men, and so that's the case with these differences between empathetic thinking or systems thinking, as they describe it here. there are plenty of women who are brilliant at what we might think of as male stuff, like putting the bins out,... or talking about cars! and women are better at asking for advice or directions. the odd man is in fact capable of stopping and asking for directions. we probably won't wait until they finish giving us the instructions before we decide it is time to move on. there was a comedy sketch yea rs time to move on. there was a comedy sketch years ago when a man makes the mistake of trying to ask for directions and gets nothing but insults and abuse from the various people who stops in north london.
11:50 pm
the telegraph with the really striking picture of michelle obama, the wife of the former president, and mrs obama, wyatt i hope the queen. why not, one might say —— why i hugged the queen. the democrats, of course, have had a tricky time. they retook the house of representatives last week. but now, of course, as soon as that election is over, the americans will talk about the next election, and this of course is probably the person the democrats would most like. shias their fantasy candidate.” democrats would most like. shias their fantasy candidate. i don't think she will run, she has never expressed any interest in it, and in these memoirs she talks about the real trials and difficulties of having to live in a white house with all of the pressures that were put upon that couple, not least by the person who succeeded them. donald trump started the rumours about barack obama trump started the rumours about ba rack obama not trump started the rumours about barack obama not being a natural born american, hinting very clearly
11:51 pm
in racist directions. and you are out there for the 2016 campaign. how was she regarded? whatever the politics of people, did michelle obama sort of survival? she was very, very popular. and there is a tradition of this. laura bush was very popular, the only person who was never more popular than their husband was a certain hillary clinton. i can't remember what happened to her... a big thank you to my guests this evening, polly mackenzie and tim montgomerie. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you seven days a week at, and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. a big thank you to my guests this evening, polly mackenzie and tim montgomerie. that's all from us tonight, and goodbye. somalia has for decades been ravaged by civil war,
11:52 pm
with tens of thousands of people being killed, and millions displaced from their homes. the islamist extremist group al—sha baab has established strongholds in the south and centre of the country, and it is extremely dangerous for journalists trying to cover the conflict. in all, 38 have died in the last few years. as part of the bbc‘s beyond fake news season, looking at threats to free and independent media around the world, our africa editor fergal keane. reports now from somalia. this is the story of young africans risking everything in the cause of truth, in a place where nearly 40 journalists have been killed in less than a decade, where many are trying to rebuild a broken nation in the face of violence and division. and where honestjournalism calls for extreme bravery. fake news here is the same as fake news everywhere.
11:53 pm
lies masquerading as truth, propaganda being peddled as fact. the big difference, of course, is that fighting that fakery in somalia is the most dangerous job in the world ofjournalism. jamal khashoggi... hussein mohammed has been threatened by al—shabab and government forces. he spends much of his time trying to untangle the lies and false claims on social media, going out every day to check his sources. when you have more sources, you have more information. i try to get more different sources when an event is taking place. that is the best way i deal with fake news. getting the facts means facing the horror that can engulf somalia. a year ago, more than 500 people were killed in mogadishu, in the worst terrorist
11:54 pm
attack in african history. we retrace the journey hussein made that day. i saw many people bleeding. as a journalist, we can't feel what other people feel. even standing here now, it's very, very dangerous. yes. somebody can drive up, there could be a drive—by shooting or a bomb. we feel many threats, many insecurities, among the murdered — hindia mohamed, killed in 2015, a mother—of—five. as a woman journalist, she was a particular target of al—shabab. her husband, also a journalist, was killed three years earlier by the organisation. today, her 19—year—old sister takes care of the couple's orphaned children. translation: she was the eldest daughter in our family, and i followed her example. when i graduated, i wanted to work, like her. after she died i thought,
11:55 pm
"i will be killed like her", so i decided to give up my plans for the future. but she says it is still her ambition to some day become a journalist. across town in a fortified hotel, a protest, demanding state protection for journalists. they have come to meet the information minister. many are young women. it is a striking image of change and defiance in this society. listening to the minister's promises of help is the radio presenter hussein. he always says such a speech, and every government official tells you that they are committed to protect you, and you know, every year many journalists are killed in somalia. in the audience, the father of a journalist shot by police. he is still waiting for the state to give him answers. foreign correspondents like me come and go, but hussein and his colleagues
11:56 pm
will stay here, and they could be killed any time — today, tomorrow, the day after. their courage is quite extraordinary, and i can't stress enough how important it is, notjust to the story of this country, but to the story of a changing africa. somalia will always owe a debt to the young men and women who struggled and sometimes died here for the truth. fergal keane, bbc news, mogadishu. that's all from me for this evening. good evening, everyone. we have had some big showers around today and that has made some really striking cloud formations. this was taken by one of our weather watchers earlier one of our weather watchers earlier on the eastern side of england, in nottinghamshire. a combination of a cumulonimbus and another cloud underneath it, we have had sunshine and showers and when we get those
11:57 pm
two together is the perfect recipe for rainbows. still some showers around through the first half of the night. some of them still thundery across the south—eastern side of england, but these will slowly start to fade in the next hour or so and generally as the night wears on the showers start to become more confined to the far north wales, northern england and scotland, and elsewhere it becomes drier, with a fair breeze blowing, blustery night, and the most other temperatures typically between five and nine celsius. the highlands of scotland could perhaps dip closer to freezing for a time as we had towards dawn. this is how were a tuesday. showers around for the western side of scotla nd around for the western side of scotland and northern england but they will slowly start to fade and aside from one or two isolated showers, for most it is a much dry day. some bright and sunny spells, breezy if not windy, especially for western coasts. these are average wind strengths tuesday afternoon but there could be a little bit stronger through the irish sea for the western isles of scotland, and temperatures getting a generally to between ten and 15 celsius. still on
11:58 pm
the mild side for the time of year. now, through tuesday evening the rain already out to the west will start to slowly work its way eastwards. that is likely to become heavier and more persistent across northern ireland, in the northern parts of wales, north—west england, eventually in the western parts of scotland. it is all connected to this frontal system. notice that the isobars are getting closer together, so it will be quite windy, especially for western areas and through irish sea coasts, and come wednesday morning that rain slowly clearing from northern ireland. still quite heavy and persistent across parts of cumbria and scotland, but they should start to ease off through the afternoon and behind it for most on wednesday are dry day, against spells of sunshine. it is still quite a breezy if not windy day, temperatures up to between 11 and 15 celsius, perhaps even 16 for the eastern side of scotla nd even 16 for the eastern side of scotland with some help from this perfect, and we continue to pull this, they are up from the south is going to thursday. this front fringing the far north and west of the uk, so we could see some outbreaks of rain across northern ireland and the western isles of scotland. for most it is mainly dry,
11:59 pm
some spells of sunshine. the wind start to turn light as we head towards the end of the week. however, through friday and into the weekend, some mist and fog which will be slow to clear. otherwise it stays dry and mild. goodbye. welcome to newsday. i'm sharanjit leyl in singapore. the headlines: fake news and the philippines. how social media's being used as a platform to re—write the country's history and confuse its citizens. there are so many bias is when it comes to the government, some people say this is the hero. who really is the one telling the truth. —— biases. the united nations warns of catastrophic consequences for millions, as the war in yemen intensifies. i'm kasia madera in london. also in the programme: america's vice president arrives in tokyo. north korea and china are expected to top the agenda.
