the i splashes on reports of the education secretary's attempts to end a home office crackdown on international students to give universities a cash boost. and the financial times reports on nissan's decision to oust its chairman carlos ghosn over claims he understated his pay. so as ever at the moment it seems, brexit leading the news in the morning. not surprising really after theresa may's statement yesterday, and a p pa re ntly may's statement yesterday, and apparently the hardening of opposition to it. daisy, the sun front page there. black friday may. there is no avoiding brexit in this because it is the main story of the day. this is a gag about black friday, and you know they put the label black fry—may. i can't help
but think the way that they did it with the label go around her neck, it was probably quite deliberate because it does look like a noose and she is probably committing political suicide in this deal. some are absolutely furious. they take 39 billion from us, and we get nothing. theresa may was accused of handing brussels the deal of the century they say on the eve of black friday. it's almost impossible to see where this is going to end up apart from total disaster. we have been over some of the time. she does not have the arithmetic. she still has a threat of a bill contest motion hanging over her. we've heard today other european leaders beginning to kick upa other european leaders beginning to kick up a stink, so she has not even made them happy. people should be laughing all the way to the bank with the deal that she is giving them, but they are not happy. it is going to get worse and worse. them, but they are not happy. it is going to get worse and worseli
think the headline says it all really. it is pretty bleak. this was an absolutely brutal day for the prime minister, and it says theresa may was accused of handing brussels the deal of the century. that's £39 billion for nothing. if you look at two things today, there are two numbers that are stark. she stood in the comments for 40 minutes before a single mp spoke up in favour of her deal with him during that session, there were 16 tory mps deal with him during that session, there were 16 tory mp5 from all sides who stood up and said i oppose your deal and i do not like it. if your deal and i do not like it. if you look at the wider party across the back benches you are talking about 87 tory mps, he talked about the arithmetic, that makes it impossible for this to get through the comments. if anything, impossible for this to get through the comments. ifanything, it impossible for this to get through the comments. if anything, it is gathering a head of stream. downing street that they would hamper down. i spoke to a cabinet minister today that said there is absolutely zero
chance that this gets through the comments. she has the backbench opposed to her and her cabinet. she is in real trouble. opposed to her and her cabinet. she is in realtrouble. and opposed to her and her cabinet. she is in real trouble. and yet she is going to the eu summit this weekend hoping to get it signed off and hoping to get it signed off and hoping it might... she is like the duracell bunny of politics just going on and on. i admire her in some ways for how she can carry on when faced with the reality she is faced with, but we have had other stories in naples that you mentioned she was trying to tell the business leaders that they were on her side, and a leak coming from a ceo said this is not a good deal. she is getting in from all sides. we know that the next few weeks are going to be absolute torture for her.“ that the next few weeks are going to be absolute torture for her. if we look at the express even, that picture of the prime minister
looking out admittedly at the opposition, but looking very a load of the chamber. she is completely isolated in this picture. so downing street is actually pinning its hopes on labourmps street is actually pinning its hopes on labour mps try to get this through. the prime minister did something very calculated this day. she said labour has six tests, and said this is why my deal passes it. she is hoping to get 20 or so labour mps to back the deal which might help her get the deal. when you have the numbers, that is not going to be and not. the statement is continuing that everybody left the chamber on the labour side. this extraordinary tactic of having two different votes, and if we lose the first vote, and we watched the chaos of the markets, then parliament will have to come to its senses and support the second vote. it doesn't make sense. it is difficult to see how they can engineer that. make sense. it is difficult to see how they can engineer thatm make sense. it is difficult to see how they can engineer that. it is also quite easy. we also are old
enough and remember when we had the chaos before the coalition government was formed, and it sort of feels like that. at least then we new there was going to be a coalition formed, and it was uncharted territory that they would pull together for the greater good. i can't help thinking now, why aren't we seeing something like that not a formal coalition government, but why aren't the different parties thinking ok, enough is enough let's come together. it's not happening at all. one more paper still talking about brexit, the guardian. may battles on all spreads to save her brexit deal, and i think that's the difficulty here. we said labour are against her, that the democratic unionist party was supposed to be propping up the government and they appear to be set to vote against it. and yet, the only tactic as far as we can see is the prime minister battling on. we have a we can see is the prime minister
battling on. we have street is weeks were downing street is campaigning, andl weeks were downing street is campaigning, and i can tell you that it is not going particularly well. the government is trying to get three brexit supporters who are opposed to the deal to do the broadcast trials. to go on sky, to go on the today programme and they are struggling. i believe that michael and andrea left are both concerned that if they are publicly seen to be supporting this deal, they will be down by it. they will be trapped. there's so sitting in cabinet. in some ways you can see that if lots of them are thinking that if lots of them are thinking that this isn't going to end up happening which you can imagine they might well be thinking that the government will collapse, do they wa nt to government will collapse, do they want to have clips of them on the news programmes being thrown back in their face, news programmes being thrown back in theirface, and news programmes being thrown back in their face, and the view said this isa their face, and the view said this is a great till and it was not. another thing that we have mentioned is, with all the briefings that we
have heard, there are problems overfishing, france saying they're going to press to continue with the status quo, which is something that is moved and germany said they want to put the lid on this in other words they want to get this vintage. gibraltar is rearing its head that this is the new northern ireland. she is pricing, and i think the fishing one is particularly relevant because fishermen voted for brexit, and they will cause a stink if they don't get anything. let's look at other stories. the front page of the guardian says, clinton eu bus closed doors to migrants to combat the far right. —— must close doors. doors to migrants to combat the far right. -- must close doors. trump had a very hard line in his message on integrates, and the democrats did not have a comeback. here you have hillary clinton very clearly sitting ona hillary clinton very clearly sitting on a much tougher line on migration.
she is saying we're not going to continue to provide refuge support and she is saying that should be the message to germany, to migrants coming from all over the world to europe, but also it's a message to democrats of america as well. it's interesting to see hillary clinton forced onto donald trump's territory. i personally think she should go quietly into the night now. while i admire her, she is the woman who gave us now. while i admire her, she is the woman who gave us donald trump. she pretty much handed him the white house on a plate, and i don't think this is going to go down well. i don't think we should take her advice on baltic. let's look at the daily mail talking about brexit. a picture there of fiona bruce, the first lady of question time, not confirmed yet, but everything wanting to her. i'm going to make myself unpopular here. i struggle to
see why question time is still as releva nt as see why question time is still as relevant as it is. i know i might be biting the hand that is feeding me, but i find it increasingly a difficult watch, and i'm very pleased with fiona bruce. i would like to see more changes to the programme. i think it is very shabby now and the politicians are robotic. —— shouty. now and the politicians are robotic. -- shouty. it does include members of the public. i think it has to do with the audience, and the two sides fighting with each other and stoking up fighting with each other and stoking upa fighting with each other and stoking up a confrontation, and that you have robotic politicians. i would like to see it ripped up and recreated in something that is a bit more relevant for the time. i think it is great to see a woman in that role, and i think she will be great without i would like to see them beat braver overall. —— bid to braver. she has big shoes to fill.
huge shoes to fill. you have been a complete legend david, and i don't know of to be on a campus that this was an intense competition for this job. —— i don't know if she can. this has been an intense competition for thisjob. i don't know if she can never say while keeping her balance. one thing that i love about question time is there is a sense of national ownership. it is part of the fabric of our society. it does to get more than two and a half million, so that is good for a politics show. that's it for the papers for this hour. 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.couk/papers and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it
later on bbc iplayer. thank you to my guests steven swi nford from the daily telegraph, and the talkradio presenter, daisy mcandrew. we'll all be back for a longer look at the papers at 11:30. but for now, goodbye. hello, good evening. last night the temperature fell to minus minus seven celsius, and it will be as near as cold, they're much clouds around. not much chance of seeing the full moon, the first full moon of november, also known as the frost moon were beaver moon. the cloud is broken in one or two places but it will not break here in sterling where it was a wet commute home earlier on this evening. there is still more wet weather and low clouds across a good part of scotla nd clouds across a good part of scotland to the rest of the night. one or two breaks follow behind them but there are more clouds coming
from the south. got a a few breaks here and there, and we should generally be frost free and a bit milder than we were last night. friday we will start and see a lot of clouds in scotland. it could produce drizzly showers with low clouds and he'll flog as well. behind that, at the clouds will be thinner and brighter across northern ireland. especially to the west. —— and it would bring frost as well. it will be thick enough to bring one or two showers while most of the showers will continue to the day towards devon and cornwall. a great deal of changes to the day, and most places will stay quite cloudy. perhaps coming into southern scotla nd perhaps coming into southern scotland as well. it should not feel quite as cold on friday as temperatures could get as high as nine or 10 degrees in the south.
across southern parts of england, probably as far and north as the m4 corridor, we have a threat of a shower. north of that, still dominated by easterly airflow tracking and lots of clouds. some sunshine perhaps. decent enough temperatures on saturday, and they could get colder on sunday. rain around the area of low pressure will get dragged away from southern parts of england. high pressure will come from the north and bring down colder airas from the north and bring down colder air as well. still clouds pushing in on the north sea. a little sunshine mainly out towards the west, most places will be dried, but temperatures probably not quite so high on sunday. it will feel cold or six or 7 degrees in scotland, and further south maybe eight or 9 degrees. this is bbc news. i'm carol walker. the headlines at 11: the prime minister says a final brexit dealfor britain is within sight, as she heads for a crucial eu summit this weekend.
the british people want this to be settled. they want a good deal that sets us on settled. they want a good deal that sets us on course for a settled. they want a good deal that sets us on course for a brighter future. that deal is within our grasp andi future. that deal is within our grasp and i am determined to deliver it. but the document, which covers trade, security and foreign affairs is not legally binding and labour says it amounts to nothing. this empty document could have been written two years ago. it is peppered with phrases such as, the parties will look at, the parties will explore. what on earth has the government been doing for the last two yea rs 7
