11:35 pm
at clarence house, during the us president's state visit to the uk next month. the guardian reveals that ethnic minorities in the uk have faced growing racism, since the brexit vote. that's according to data seen by the newspaper. and the mirror says gps want longer appointments with their patients, in order to make a proper diagnosis. so, a varied set of front pages — let's see what our reviewers make of it all. i think we would all like that. a nice variety of front pages. let us start off, lance and even with the i. we'll start with brexit. let us that out of the way. the headline is a brexit party finances get a shakedown. all the front pages, most of the front pages have pictures of
11:36 pm
nigel farage and the milkshake. what flavour was the milkshake, eve? nigel farage and the milkshake. what flavour was the milkshake, eve7m was a salted caramel with banana. flavour was the milkshake, eve7m was a salted caramel with bananam sounds yummy. eve wanted to mention the salted caramel with banana. it is part of the courtesy we are trying to reintroduce into public life. i'll give you the opportunity to mention the flavour of the milkshake. there are lots of pictures of the milkshake all over his suit. the i are following up on the important question about the finances of the brexit party, serious questions have been raised about that. gordon brown made a speech about it earlier today. the problem seems to be that they are taking lots of small contributions, which is absolutely fine, and i'm sure the vast majority of those are coming from people in this country, but because many of them have been made through paypal where you can make payments anonymously, there is no tracing where this money is coming from. and it is against the law to take foreign contributions for a political campaign. so the
11:37 pm
electoral commission, whose job it is to supervise this, going to visit the brexit party office tomorrow. theyis the brexit party office tomorrow. they is a routine visit. but the brexit party is the only party they are making a visit to during the european campaign. there was living there is a serious issue to address. other parties have had to take this very seriously. at other times there have been, it's about where the money comes from our people know that if it comes from abroad it needs to be returned. i don't see why the brexit party should be any different. do you think this will damage them in the buildup to thursday? well, of course, the problem will come, of course, by the time the election watchdog comes to its final answers we will be well, brexit, what's brexit? it will be sold. we want an instantaneous response. we want to know now. many other parties have been looked at by the watchdog over the years and it is only fair that everybody comes from the same absolutely fair state.
11:38 pm
i would not want to trivialise an unacceptable attack on nigel farage, which i don't think is the way we should be conducting elections at all or campaigning at all, but people are throwing everything at nigel farage at the moment, whether it is allegations about the source of his money or what he said in the past about the health service and everything else, and what is really all about. whether that makes any difference to the people preparing to vote for him i am really not sure. it enables him to play the vic, he can say the establishment are ganging up against me, they are scared of me, that is why... -- victim. and it is a brand—new party. it is quite right it is under the spotlight. if you think about the other parties they have had to put up other parties they have had to put up with years of. don't think anybody seriously expects this to don't that chances of being the largest party in the poll on thursday —— dent. largest party in the poll on thursday -- dent. it is a weird thing about the poll this week, the
11:39 pm
polish probably should not have been m, polish probably should not have been in, we did not expect to be in, and a poll that really, most of us can tell you what it is about, they can't tell you the name of the person... ijust don't understand what is going on. that is true. it will be interesting to see what the turnout is like. talking of attacks, let us talk about the front of the time. we have the picture of the nigel farage. the story is of philip hammond, boris johnson. what nigel farage. the story is of philip hammond, borisjohnson. what is going on? chancellor of the exchequer making what is being interpreted as a direct attack on borisjohnson. this interpreted as a direct attack on boris johnson. this is interpreted as a direct attack on borisjohnson. this is open season in the conservative party now. we all know that theresa may is on her way out and those that fancy themselves for the job... way out and those that fancy themselves for the job. .. crosstalk. there seem to be out 17 declared candidates at the moment. the chancellor is not one of them. he is one of the few people at the top of the tory party who doesn't fancy his
11:40 pm
chances of being prime minister. he has strong views on who we should be. and the speech is making tomorrow is a very direct attack on what he describes as the populus wright, who he accuses of hijacking the referendum result. and he says, think quite rightly, that there has never been a mandate or a no—deal brexit. that at the time of the referendum those who were arguing for brexit said that there would be ideal, ideal would be very straightforward, it would be easy to negotiate and imprison's interests. the chancellor is reminding us that those people within the tory party, like borisjohnson, those people within the tory party, like boris johnson, lake those people within the tory party, like borisjohnson, lake dominic raab, and several others, who are now saying actually we can cope with a no—deal brexit, that is not a problem at all, having a sense hijacked the campaign and hijacked the result of a brexit referendum. —— like dominic raab. philip hammond is making the case that they should not be the people put in charge of the process. he is also saying that
11:41 pm
surely we should take a no deal of the table. is that because it was pa rt of the table. is that because it was part of theresa may's go at trying to get us out of europe now up for grabs. he is saying that to the cbi. they would love to see what the cbi is saying that. we had an interesting point about that in our paper review. remind us of that. there would be somebody who would be disputed, somebody who was a well— known company, a disputed, somebody who was a well—known company, a household company, i remember the well—known company, a household company, i rememberthe boss of marks & spencer 's from years ago, who would put up the point of view of the shop and of the consumer because that is what they care about. without consumers they go bust. it doesn't not intervene at this time. 0k, shutting shop or shutting post offices we are going
11:42 pm
inside the paper although it is on the front page. ages six and seven of the paper. saving a local post offices. it is interesting that the tabloid papers are not leading on brexit. i think day possibly realise that readers would like to go onto normal life. are you is the local post office quite a lot. what do you use it for? is it so mail or banking? i'd buy stuff, go and collect. they also have relatives abroad. so i am sending stuff. —— i also have a thing it is a useful place. you go there, they weigh things, you pay. it was not communal, but it was part of everyday life. you had a puzzle, you go to the post office, it was in the high street, use to get and they
11:43 pm
tell you how long it would take and you decide how much you pay only postage —— you decide how much you pay only postage — — parcel. you decide how much you pay only postage —— parcel. remember going to the post office with my mum. and it is now vanishing. there is a big issue which is about our communities, particularly rural communities, particularly rural communities, but not only rural communities, but not only rural communities, but not only rural communities, but the focal point of those immunities is disappearing. a lot of the pubs are closing down, a lot of the pubs are closing down, a lot of the libraries are closing down, community centres may not be there, finding is not there for a lot of these things. the post office plays a role in that. it is old—fashioned. it plays a role in that. it is old —fashioned. it is plays a role in that. it is old—fashioned. it is not 21st—century. for a lot of people in those communities, certainly older people, people who may be living by themselves for whatever reason, the only conversation they might have would be going to the post office, you could have a brief chat. and people used to have savings accounts at the post office. all of that. it was part of life. and just to see it
11:44 pm
go... it does have to move on. this is interesting. they would say that the post office has moved on because you can our bank, notjust, as you say, the post office savings... but the argument from the postmasters is that they are not making any money on taking on these other banking jobs. so they should make a cappuccino while they are helping you. a lot of them now are in little shops a newsagent as well. one of your producers said in his town it is in the pub. you need to get creative. it is quite scandalous. one of the things that is happening in the status, for example, when you have a prescription you now have companies who will deliver the prescription. if you have it monthly or whatever, they will deliver it. so, in the end, chemists might start vanishing. then we really will be in
11:45 pm
trouble. we have that here. you can have your prescription delivered your home. the daily mirror now. this would grab your attention, wouldn't it? we want more time. these are the issues that people, and many mps as well, would like to be document rather than brexit. brexit has just sucked all the energy out of our political debate a national discussion. and the things that people, and one of the reasons that people, and one of the reasons that papers like the daily mirror, great campaigning newspaper, would have this on the front page is that their readers care about this more than they care about the latest antics of nigel farage or what is going on in the conservative party and this particular case it is gps saying that they wish they could have 15 minutes. it is not a very long time. it is how long it takes us long time. it is how long it takes us to discuss the newspapers of an evening. that is to be able to properly diagnose the needs of their people.
11:46 pm
occasionally you often men take a while to explain what's going on. we don't like talking about our problems publicly. no, you don't. by the time you get to the right —— the route of why they visited you... we're going stay with the inside. far right terror pots target mps. this takes us back to the attack today, not terribly significant on nigel farage, it was only a banana and salted caramel milkshake but it is indicative of the growing threat of violence and intimidation and attacks of one sort or another on people in public life and politicians in particular. candidates are living in fear of going out in the streets. how can you possibly conduct a democracy under those circumstances? women in particular about the brunt of it but it's notjust particular about the brunt of it but
11:47 pm
it's not just mps. particular about the brunt of it but it's notjust mps. outspoken mps we re it's notjust mps. outspoken mps were suffering from this. campaigning fortheir were suffering from this. campaigning for their local council. facing threats of intimidation and physical attacks. the story —— the story in the mirror is five major targets. it's all parties. i mean, it's bad in itself. whether young people today would ever dream of a career people today would ever dream of a career in public life. what is behind it? first, i think this is the age of vilification. from twitter onwards, people with no faces will attack you for being racist in one way or being different in one way or whatever. that's disgraceful. life is a visual thing.
11:48 pm
so many times, you don't even notice there is a bloke and sunglasses who is looking around and seeing what's going on because we've got used to so many public figures having to have security. if you look at that picture ten, 15 years ago, they get out of the car on their own and walked down the street on their own. today it's not possible. we know thatjo cox, a friend of mine, she lost her life during the brexit referendum. that should be a warning to all of us as to what can happen, low level violence and attacks, the extent go to. the jo cox foundation that was set up in a name is focused on dealing with that level of intimidation but also trying to build our communities and restore some of the civility in the discourse. civility is very
11:49 pm
important. you ask any young person, they would say, what is that word? the daily telegraph. private passion, it was attacked basically but it's led to an incredible story and its model railways. rod stewart has a model railway and there was this model railway that was all mashed up and he is given, i think, 10,000 towards it and i thinkjeremy vine has given money towards it so it's fascinating what people will put their hands in their pockets. what have you got? a lot of people would never have known that rod stewart had a passion for model railways. in his house in essex, he had this amazing... what is your private passion? my grandchildren, really. really, really boring.|j
11:50 pm
private passion? my grandchildren, really. really, really boring. i had a model railways a kid and we're still a model railways a kid and we're st i ll lower a model railways a kid and we're still lower down from the ceiling andl still lower down from the ceiling and i absolutely adored it. my nephews and nieces these days would look at you if you are mad. it's not electronic? i have moved on, i don't have moved —— room anymore. electronic? i have moved on, i don't have moved -- room anymore. he hasn't said what is private passion is. i've got lots of private passion is. i've got lots of private passion is i'm not going to be discussing. you are no fun. 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, lance price and eve pollard. and from all of us, goodbye.
11:51 pm

11:54 pm
open topped bosses, a lot of course with their array of silverware. the manchester city players were all wearing t—shirts with the word "formidable" on it to read —— reflector domestic trophies they won this season if you include the community shield. it was a particular warm reception of course for captain vincent kompany as he leaves after 11 years at the club in which she has seen manchester city transform into one of the domestic superpowers of english football. the women's team were also parading the continental cup and the fa cup. really, all the players received a deafening ovation from thousands of fa ns deafening ovation from thousands of fans who took this route. they eventually arrived here at manchester cathedral where once again the crowd are giving them some deception. yes, city have concerns of the pitch, particularly this investigation by the european football authorities, claims they broke financial rules, claims that
11:55 pm
they deny a bit as far as the fans are concerned, those concerns can wait as they celebrate what has been a record—breaking season. great britain's ice hockey team have retained their world championship top—flight status with a dramatic 11—3 overtime win against france. having lost their first six matches in slovakia, today”s match was a winner—takes—all encounter for survival. gb had to come from behind after france scored twice in six seconds to lead 3—0 — but managed to equalise to take the match into extra time before ben davies grabbed the winner. that's all the sport for now. enjoy the rest of your evening. good night. dramatic stuff there in the hockey and dramatic cloud pictures that have been sent to us over recent days. this was today's abbott from cardiff. a little tube of cloud, called a funnel cloud, a tornado that doesn't reach all the way to
11:56 pm
the ground and what about this beauty from sunday from north yorkshire. the atmosphere had 25 times more energy installed with it waiting to go laying and that is what is happening across the united states with severe thunderstorms breaking out. eight tornadoes from these severe thunderstorms and there is the potential for some violent tornadoes over the coming hours and those terminator —— tornadoes could be on the ground for a long time so some very be on the ground for a long time so some very significant whether there across texas and oklahoma. we've still got a lot of rain left over. still quite foggy around but it's a mild night for many of us in starting the down tuesday, most areas starting the day with sunshine. it will brighten up as well in scotland as the rain eases but later in the afternoon, we will start to see some showers for me across northern and eastern parts of scotland. some of those showers, getting across eastern england but
11:57 pm
there will be a lot of dry weather with sunshine around with the will light winds, it will feel pleasantly warm and any sunshine. more of that only dry weather to come on wednesday as well. there is an obvious change across the far north of scotland. as the cloud beckons, it'll be cool, with northerly winds and probably some cooler, wetter weather getting into aberdeenshire for a time as well. otherwise not feeling bad, high teens, 20s for most of us. sunny spells, just a few slow—moving showers and the winds staying light. there are signs of the weather beginning to change on thursday. however front will try to nudge and of the atlantic and that could threaten a little bit of rain but for many of us, not a dry day. 19 for cardiff on 21 in london. as we get towards friday on the
