9:31 am
today, sunshine but also showers, some of which will be thundery. a band of cloud will bring general showery rain into northern ireland later in the afternoon, further south some spells of sunshine. tonight though showers across northern ireland into scotland and northern england, showers elsewhere fading away and with clear skies it will turn into a chilly night compared to what we are used to, many spots into single digits. tomorrow starting with sunshine, we hold on to some of that in the south but cloud spreads in from the west, drizzle for western coasts and temperatures between 15 and 22 degrees.
9:32 am
hello, this is bbc news with shaun ley. the headlines: the eu's lead brexit negotiator, michel barnier, says the uk has now reached a moment of truth.
9:33 am
he rejects borisjohnson‘s demand for the irish backstop to be scrapped. the prime minister's message to his own party — he tells tory rebels to back him and his brexit plan, or side withjeremy corbyn. pro—democracy activists in hong kong target the city's airport after a night of violence in which dozens of people were injured. police describe the lone gunman suspected of carrying out the second mass shooting in texas in a month asa " ' and in a few minutes we'll have our sunday morning edition of the papers. this morning's reviewers are clare cohen, women's editor at the telegraph newspaper, and the spectator‘s fraser nelson. before the papers, sport and a full round—up from the bbc sport centre with jane dougall. a slightly sombre start because of the death of our formula to driver but also a north london derby to look forward to.
9:34 am
yes, the north london derby, arsenal taking on tottenham, we will have more on that later on but we start with a very sad story. motorsport is in mourning, following the death of a young driver during a support race for this weekend's belgian grand prix. 22—year—old french driver anthoine hubert died after a crash in a formula 2 race in spa. it happened on the second lap and as the severity of the situation became clear, the race was susequently halted. a lot of the senior fi drivers knew him. world champion lewis hamilton paid tribute on social media, writing: ferrari's charles leclerc posted a picture of himself and fellow countryman anthoine hubert alongside each other from their karting days together. charles leclerc will find today's formula i race at spa tough, where tributes are expected to be paid to antoine hubert. leclerc is on pole and will be
9:35 am
hoping to claim the first victory of his formula i career. it's his third pole position of the season in qualifying for the belgian grand prix. his ferrari team—mate sebastian vettel lines up alongside him, with championship leader lewis hamilton third. liverpool go into the international break with four wins out of four in the premier league after they beat burnley 3—0. manchester city went one better with a 4—0 thrashing of brighton. chelsea and manchester united could only draw, though, as adam wild reports. too soon to call the premier league a two—horse race, but even in these early stages, liverpool and manchester city are just too good for the rest. they say in sport you make your own luck — liverpool were making just a little bit of burnley. trent alexander—arnold's cross somehow finding its way in. if that was fortunate, goals from sadio mane and then roberto firmino were entirely deserved. the success brings expectation — sadio mane clearly angry at being substituted. but that drive for more is what drives liverpool forward.
9:36 am
he's an emotional guy, we're all emotional. that's how it is. would he would do it exactly like this again? probably not, but it's all ok, really. i like that, we sort these things in a second, but obviously not outside in the public. everybody needs to calm down, everything is fine, and we still like each other. if liverpool all like each other, manchester city fans can't help but like what they are seeing as well. it took them little over a minute to get things started against brighton. manchester city have the lead on 71 seconds. two goals from sergio aguero made the game safe. four in total for city on a very comfortable afternoon. things considerably less comfortable for their cross—city rivals, manchester united. against southampton, things started brightly enough. that's a brilliant goal. this was danieljames showing once again why so much is expected from him. the lead wouldn't last —
9:37 am
jannik verstergaard's first goal for southampton. a draw then, but for some clearly it felt rather more than that. chelsea, another premier league winner of the past now looking to their future. their youngest side in the modern era. and one of those, tammy abraham, was justifying the faith in youth. this his second goal against sheffield united. but those from the steel city have within them an inner steel. one that saw them steal a point with an 89th—minute equaliser. chelsea have some growing to do. but the goal of the day perhaps came in leicester's win over bournemouth. jamie vardy has done this kind of thing before. it never stops being spectacular. a spectacular goal. later on today arsenal will host tottenham in the north london derby. in scotland it's rangers celtic in the old firm derby at lunchtime, but everyone else in the scottish premiership
9:38 am
played yesterday. motherwell put three goals past hibernian without reply. the opening effort from sherwin seedorf was the pick of the goals. watch this. elsewhere, there were wins for aberdeen, livingston and kilmarnock. hearts drew with hamilton. it's nowjust under three weeks until the rugby world cup gets under way in japan, and after a thrashing by england last weekend, ireland have been stepping up their preparations with a win 22—17 over wales in cardiff. scotland recorded their first away win in 14 months as they beat georgia in their last world cup warm up match before their final squad is announced. rory hutchinson scored two tries on his first test start in a comfortable 44—10 victory. hull kingston rovers beat catalans dragons 2a—6 in perpignan to boost their hopes of avoiding relegation from super league. with huddersfield beating hull on friday night, rovers needed to win to create a gap in the table from bottom side london, who play fellow strugglers leeds today. tries from ryan shaw
9:39 am
and one for danny maguire settled the contest. vasly lomachenko beat britain's luke campbell at london's o2 arena on points to add wbc lightweight title to his wba and wbo belts. lomachenko — who's regarded as one of the best pound—for—pound boxers — was made to work hard for the thrilling win, though. campbell was knocked down in the 11th round by the ukrainian — who won by a unanimous decision. i was too close, i was too close but it's boxing and i said before, for me it doesn't matter about the result, knockout, tko or score, it doesn't matter, win, just win. rafa nadal has powered through to the fourth round of the us open.
9:40 am
the world number two was clinical in seeing off south korea's chung hyeon in straight sets yesterday evening. nadal will now face either john isner or 2014 champion marin cilic in the next round. defending champion naomi osaka is also through, beating 15—year—old coco gauff in straight sets 6—3, 6—0. gauff‘s serving badly letting her down in the second set. and osaka showed her compassion in victory afterwards, with some consoling words for the emotional american teenager. it was kind of instinctive because when i shook her hand eye so that she was clearing up a little and thenit she was clearing up a little and then it reminded me how young she was and then for me, at least when i lose i just was and then for me, at least when i lose ijust come into the locker room and cry and then i do press here. i love you guys but it's not the greatest. that's understandable.
9:41 am
that's all the sport for now. now on bbc news, here's the papers. hello and welcome to our sunday morning paper review. with me is claire cohen, women's editor of the telegraph, and editor of the spectator, fraser nelson. welcome to both of you, welcome back to normal reality after the summer. let's take a look at the front pages. brexit endgame — that's on the front of the sunday telegraph as borisjohnson considers ousting tory rebels who undermine his attempts to secure a new deal with brussels and michel barnier vows that he will not ditch the backstop. the sunday express reports that the prime minister will call an election within days if remain mps succeed in blocking a no—deal brexit. there's a similar story on the front of the sunday times with borisjohnson warning tory mps that they must back him to deliver brexit or risk putting jeremy corbyn in power.
9:42 am
the times also has the latest on the government's plans to end freedom of movement on october 31st, writing that these have been torn up due to legal reasons. the observer features an image of crowds outside downing street protesting at the shutdown of parliament alongside reports that former civil service chiefs havejoined calls for a top—level inquiry into how boris johnson's closest aide, dominic cummings, was able to sack one of the chancellor's advisers. and the mail on sunday follows suit with a brexit lead — publishing comments from brexiteerjacob rees—mogg. the paper also has an exclusive interview with the father of the duchess of sussex, meghan markle. right, let's plunge straight in and fraser, the front of the sunday times, boris is smiling on the front of the paper but it would not be a smile he will be aiming at the
9:43 am
rebels. yes, on tuesday the rebels will see if they can take control of parliamentary business and on wednesday and thursday they will try to pass a motion to tell the prime minister he has to ask for an extension to brexit. if they succeed, he is asked in this interview but he doesn't say, but his message to the tories is that if they follow oliver letwin and go along with this, they will not stand asa along with this, they will not stand as a tory in the next election. a few of them will not stand at the next election anyway but we are told there were 20 tory mps who would quite like to run as a campaign group against no—deal brexit, the message from number 10 is that if you do that you will not be a tory for a long, that could be counter—productive or make them think they will not split away and
9:44 am
deprive him of his majority, it wouldn't take many tories to move away from the party whip for him to lose control so this is gamble upon gamble. and that's a counter strike this remaining alliance is promising to hit back at provoking parliament can then there is talk of a breakaway tory group so we are seeing this strike and counterpunch. you talk about elections, it is all about elections, the most generous spending review since the height of new labour, boris johnson spending review since the height of new labour, borisjohnson says, if that isn't looking at an election what is? a lot of people will be thinking 3.5 billion for councils and social care, hurray. it's building up to the details of a ma nifesto building up to the details of a manifesto at least but how big a risk is this because you could argue
9:45 am
a lot of people may think boris johnson is doing this from a position of weakness. if you look at opinion polls, the conservatives are strikingly ahead now but we all know opinion polls versus reality, but right now he has momentum because if the rebels think they can force an election but if that election means he comes back with a bigger majority, what is the point? these polls project perceived strength or wea kness polls project perceived strength or weakness and right now he's playing every card he can get to get through the next few days but it's not as if, if he succeeds he's home and dry but he has battle with brussels and then another battle with his party so the chances of all these things coming through for him are not great but he says in the interview that the chance of no deal is pretty big and the chance of a deal is pretty
9:46 am
big. he used to say there was a million to one chance of no deal, that has now officially been rewritten and he admits the whole project. another story, if it were not for the boris interview this could be its lead because the government is tearing up its policy. we we re government is tearing up its policy. we were told by priti patel that free movement would end over night, i'iow free movement would end over night, now home office lawyers have said it is illegal and cannot be done, not to mention they didn't have the administrative setup so it's an embarrassing insight into what is happening behind home office doors. given it was one of the things people trumpeted as a benefit of brexit, that britain would regain control of its immigration policy and yet freedom of movement will
9:47 am
survive even if we aren't in the eu at least for some months. jeremy corbyn has a decent opinion piece in the observer where he has alighted on this is the government's biggest wea kness on this is the government's biggest weakness because the lead campaigners were saying to eu nationals this would not affect them, this is about what happens in them, this is about what happens in the future but if you are here your status will be the same, now two things have gone badly wrong, the eu nationals applying for state as a third of them are being told they are not given permanent status but five years, so we sought the case of a baker in bath who had been here for 31 yea rs a baker in bath who had been here for 31 years and was told he could stay for another five. the for 31 years and was told he could stay for anotherfive. the home office said he had hit the wrong form, you can see the beginnings of chaos here but also to say freedom of movement will end on the 31st of
9:48 am
october but without saying what would replace it put millions of people in chaos. 2 million eu nationals have not been given status, there is no chance the government will process those and the government didn't intend this. they thought they were sounding hard coming up with tough rhetoric, saying brexit is about taking control, they haven't worked out that these words need actions and worryingly he hadn't worked out the uncertainty and despair, the feeling these words would have on people who we re these words would have on people who were told by the prime minister on his first day that their position wouldn't change so this is the first major u—turn from borisjohnson, the first time he has realised talking tough can backfire. and that you have to do the detailed policy before you commit to it. in the telegraph, michel barnier is on his
9:49 am
way out because the european commissioner who appointed him leaves office on the 31st of october but he still has a sting in his tale, reminding us he negotiated this deal and he doesn't think the eu will shift on it. boris said he thought there might be a chance of an alternative to the backstop, merkel and macron seem ready to renegotiate and this is michel barnier saying now, we have been flexible, blowing that sense of optimism out of the water. he is also keen to emphasise that no deal exit would not be the fault of the eu, he says he would be surprised if the public succumb to the idea the eu is to blame, suggesting that our politicians are doubling down but it doesn't get more convincing than that and we don't know what the alternative is, that is the point,
9:50 am
this is damning of potential alternatives to the backstop, we still don't know what that is the technology is not in place, so it's one man versus the technology is not in place, so it's one man versus the other but we down the nitty—gritty. one man versus the other but we down the nitty-gritty. also a piece from michael gove who says we have a chance for renegotiation, we have been given indications by macron and merkel and michel barnier says forget that, it's my deal or no deal. the big question is who calls the shots. michel barnier is facing the shots. michel barnier is facing the failure of his negotiation so he wa nts to the failure of his negotiation so he wants to say to the parliamentary rebels, he says opinion is split in britain which he means there is still a chance the rebels will force the prime minister to take his deal so you can see why he's talking tough and it isn't clear where power
9:51 am
lies. we have all been surprised that the eu has hung together better than the party, there is no arguing within nations, only now do we see a slight difference in message. and the hope for the prime minister that the hope for the prime minister that the eu summit on the 17th of october might bea the eu summit on the 17th of october might be a chance to go over the heads of officials and take it to the national leaders. to the observer now and this is interesting, this is all tied to the abrupt dismissal of special adviser on thursday who was stripped of security status and marched out of downing street with apparently no evidence she had leaked anything. and marched out by police officers and also had her two phones confiscated, one which was her private phone, and this was all done by dominic cummings, the first
9:52 am
victim of his reign of terror as the observer put it and he has been set up observer put it and he has been set up as this great villain, played by benedict cumberbatch, which has stoked this fact but this is a man who was not elected and by whose power is he doing this? the suggestion is he didn't talk to sajid javid before he marched his aide out and this is an insight into the real power in whitehall and i suspect mps are shocked by it because they haven't had that slightly the thick of it spin doctor evil genius. they may miss at peter mandelson figure who could be portrayed as something sinister. this is helpful to borisjohnson because dominic cummings is putting himself forward as the guy journalist may talk about, you sack a junior adviser, he is on a
9:53 am
short—term contract, hisjob is to get brexit done so if he is the one who takes the bullets and the prime minister isn't, the plan is working well and we are talking about an aide sajid javid inherited rather than appointed and it's not that heseltine outdid cabinet door in disgrace but it shows the drama we are accustomed to absolutely has dominic cummings as a malefactor figure. it could suit them both. let's end on the independent with a striking photo of the protesters in london yesterday, this is quite a serious story, claire, and a worrying one in all discussion we have had about the risks that rape
9:54 am
prosecutions might not go ahead if women were prosecutions might not go ahead if women were reluctant about chairing mobile phones and social media, this is more fundamental saying where you live in the country will affect whether you get justice. the independent called it a postcode lottery which is perhaps not the most appropriate phrase to use but the point is that police forces are referring to different numbers of cases to the cps depending on where you live, which comes in the same week we discover that prosecution rates are the lowest for five years, only one in 50 now sees justice despite more women reporting so it has been a shocking week for those revelations. the story says the victims' commissioner has said the disparity is hard to explain at the cps which it is not, its many factors commit delays in investigations, victims being
9:55 am
distrusted, the paranoia around false allegations and the cps dropping cases because of the mobile phone element, it's a huge mess and now to find out that where you live has an impact, it's a wonder that people are reporting at all. in devon and cornwall the proportion of cases referred to the cps is up 5% and its four times that in norfolk and its four times that in norfolk and south wales. if the same police are using the same system is to consider the same sort of cases, there is no way to explain that disparity so guidelines must be being mixed and police are not working out what they have to do, there is confusion that the government ought to clear up. another one for the home secretary to look into at the first opportunity. thank you both very much for coming in to guide us through the papers. that's it from
9:56 am
us. 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 and if you miss the programme any time you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, claire and fraser, and from all of us, goodbye. it seems apt that the first day of september brings some rather cool weather, it is the first day of autumn as faras weather, it is the first day of autumn as far as meteorologists are concerned and with that cool feel we have a mix of sunshine and showers, cool air ushered in yesterday by this cloud which brought rain for many, you can see speckled clouds, drifting in from the north—west and with that breeze we tap into some cooler air than we have been used to, so this afternoon there will be
9:57 am
spells of sunshine and showers, shower is most plentiful across the northern half of the uk, across scotla nd northern half of the uk, across scotland some could be heavy and thundery, some sunny spells in between but those temperatures, 13 degrees for stornoway, very cool and fresh. northern ireland will see cloud increasing from the west with rain purging through in the afternoon, showers across northern england and north wales, for southern england, here not too many showers, many places get away with a dry afternoon and sunshine. tonight that cloud and rain crossing northern ireland will work into scotla nd northern ireland will work into scotland and northern england, the cloud likely to break up, generally long clear spells through the night and it will be a chilly night from towns and cities between six and 9 degrees, in the countryside 4 or 5 soa degrees, in the countryside 4 or 5 so a cool start to monday, high
9:58 am
pressure initially in charge so fine with some sunshine in many areas especially england and wales but we will see rain across northern ireland spread into scotland, the north of england, drizzle for western coast of wales and the south—west and generally more cloud developing across the uk throughout the day, eastern scotland holding onto some sunshine, we get into tuesday, still a lot of cloud, dribs and drabs of rain and drizzle, hefty showers across the north—west and temperatures on tuesday between 17 and 23 degrees, perhaps feeling milder but that won't last, more cool air sweeps south during the middle of the week, temperatures up 00:28:51,237 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 to 19 and 20 degrees at best.
