11:30 pm
some next sister moves in with some tropical air encased in that —— system. potentially with some flood issues. ahead of it will be another day or blustery showers on saturday. they will tend to ease a little. the rain comes in as we move through the afternoon into wales in the south—west with the winds are strengthening all the time. saturday night brings a full moon and high tides, with potential gale force winds in southern and western areas we could see some coastal flooding. with fridays rain and through the weekend into monday we could see up to 150 millimetres of rain in some parts of england and wales, clears away on sunday. what follows is a strong and cold northerly wind. the drying up to during the day on sunday. showers will follow behind. the strength of the wind on saturday night and then through sunday afternoon, the latter part of sunday dudley north seacoast we could have severe gales. then we have a brief
11:31 pm
respite. just a brief one. mostly for the north. the northerly wind comes down. we will get a brief cold snap of weather. more notable for scotla nd snap of weather. more notable for scotland and northern ireland. accentuated by the strength of the wind initially on monday. a drier start. there could be misty problems in the morning. then the rain comes in across southern and western areas. again on top of a lot of rain having fallen over the weekend, we think. it remains relatively mild in the south, but feeling chilly in the north, both monday and into tuesday, it looks as though the north may escape the worst of the wet weather to start the new week. we see the rain strung out across england and wales and gradually meandering out of the way. again, the northerly wind dipping the temperatures by day into single figures across the far north of scotland. it doesn't last long, that brief drier and julius spell. here is the ridge of high pressure. by the time we reach the middle of the week low pressure in
11:32 pm
becomes the dominant feature again. and again there could be tropical low mixed in with the system. at this stage it looks as though the north and west will bear the brunt of the wettest and potentially very windy weather. the devil is in the detail. what it will bring in is a return to milder our coming in off the atlantic, particularly if there is tropical air. thejet the atlantic, particularly if there is tropical air. the jet stream strung across the uk, driving the weather systems are way. —— strong. after windy weather and wet weather through the weekend, cool and possibly dry weather especially in the north, then it turns wet and windy once again. there are warnings out and they are on the website. but from me, bye—bye.
11:33 pm
hello. this is bbc news with carrie gracie. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment — first the headlines. the prime minister has defended his language as dozens of mps demand an apology from him after furious exchanges in the commons i totally deplore any threats
11:34 pm
to anybody, particularly female mps. we abhor the language of division and hate and words such as a saboteur, enemy, surrender, betrayal. it should have no place in our party. the row comes as a man is arrested for allegedly verbally abusing staff and smacking the doors and windows at mpjess phillips' constituency office. a whistleblower accuses donald trump and the white house of a cover up, over damning details of phone calls, with the president of ukraine. there's been another drop in the number of parents taking up routine vaccinations for under—fives, in england. gunfire. libya's capital is under fire. the embattled government is facing a rebel offensive which threatens to destabilize the region even further.
11:35 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are anna mikhailova, the deputy political editor of the telegraph, and polly mackenzie, the director of cross—party think tank demos. all of tomorrow's front pages are in. borisjohnson‘s most senior brexit advisor dominic cummings is pictured on the front of the telegraph. the paper reports he says politicians who refuse to respect the result of the eu referendum, should not complain about rancour in the house of commons. the financial times reports on accusations of a cover—up facing the white house, over a call between donald trump and the ukrainian president. "don't be a bully boris!" reads the headling across the metro.
11:36 pm
the prime minister's sister rachel accuses of him of being ‘tasteless and reprehensible' and using the house of commons as a ‘bully pulpit‘. —— headline. on the daily mail, bank scammers steal £1million a day — as the paper reports britain's fraud epidemic is growing at an alarming pace, despite repeated promises by banks to act. a warning on the times to deliver brexit or face riots! senior allies to the prime minister warn of civil unrest on the scale of the gilets jaunes protests in france or the riots in los angeles if brexit is frustrated. the guardian also reports on accusations that white house officials covered up a phone call between donald trump and the ukrainian president, according to a whistleblower who has triggered an explosive impeachment inquiry in the united states. the independent has a scoop about an oil company which is run by a major tory donor who met with borisjohnson, has had a £1.6bn deal underwritten
11:37 pm
by the british taxpayer, despite it being investigated by the serious fraud office. and the mirror pictures derby footballer mason bennett and team—mate tom lawrence who have both been charged with drink—driving offences. let us see what our paper reviews have to say. —— reviewers. let's look at the times first of all. deliver exit of rights. where is this coming from? this is coming from a briefing by what the times describes as a senior cabinet minister. that brexit has to go ahead or they will be rights in the streets was not it is true, certainly, there are a lot of angry people on the leave site that they feel, perhaps justifiably, we people on the leave site that they feel, perhapsjustifiably, we ought to have made more progress after
11:38 pm
three years. there are some ways this senior cabinet minister seems to be wrong. if there was a catastrophic no—deal brexit with shortages of food and medicine, i think they would be rights in the street for that as well. they also said that in this country we never had rights. people just said that in this country we never had rights. peoplejust don't had rights. people just don't think it is possible in this country. that is just nonsense. it is possible in this country. that isjust nonsense. in it is possible in this country. that is just nonsense. in the 90s, we it is possible in this country. that isjust nonsense. in the 90s, we had the poll tax rights. i remember standing in the treasury and watching the student led anti— austerity marches in 2010 where they we re austerity marches in 2010 where they were burning my boss nick clegg's effigy in the streets. we had rights everywhere. it is ludicrous to suggest britain hasn't been there before. i would suggest britain hasn't been there before. iwould hope suggest britain hasn't been there before. i would hope that politicians would therefore take seriously the idea that all of them need to use more moderate language and that we should expect the prime minister to lead and try to unify the country as he promised to do on his first day in office. moderately
11:39 pm
which, yes, but i also think there is an element of this having been delayed so many times. we have had so delayed so many times. we have had so many examples of mps just not being able to say what they want. we have a democracy where people elect mps to represent them stop we have constituencies who did predominantly vote leave, or at least, you know, and yet you have parliament which is completely deadlocked and has been for a very long time now. this threat of riots, it is incendiary and very worrying and i also do rememberabouta year and very worrying and i also do remember about a year ago, we had tony blair come and speak in parliament at an event and one of the questions repeatedly put to him, because he is an advocate for a second referendum, he says all we needis second referendum, he says all we need is a second vote and one of the questions repeatedly put to him is aren't you worried about unrest and more division? he says no, no, this will never happen. fast forward, we
11:40 pm
haven't got anywhere stop we probably are closer to a referendum then we were a year ago but are we any that are off? no. the division is getting worse and worse. in this times story where they are quoting dominic cummings, the senior advisor of mrjohnson, saying, we are enjoying this. we are going to leave and we are going to win. it is a kind of bring it on kind of a message, isn't it? yes, this is what he seems to be. he is almost the bogeyman of downing street and how he is painted by labour, by the press. i think there is an element of think someone came into, i was talking to one government aid today,. he wasjoking a quote from scarface, , today,. he wasjoking a quote from scarface,, you today,. he wasjoking a quote from scarface, , you want today,. he wasjoking a quote from scarface,, you want to see a bad quy: scarface,, you want to see a bad guy, that is dominic cummings for
11:41 pm
you. he plays up to you. and coming to your front you. he plays up to you. and coming to yourfront page. you. he plays up to you. and coming to your front page. your byline is that dominic cummings is the part of your story. he was people till in voting leave and he was ——he is now one of the most powerful figures in parliament and he very rarely says anything in public was up today he was speaking publicly at an event and responding to the events in parliament, particularly the complaints of abuse. mps have been saying they are getting death threats and that they are getting more and more abuse and some of them are fearful for their lives. he dismisses this and just says, well, you have been frustrating brexit effectively so why are you surprised the country is angry? reading anna's
11:42 pm
story and the times when we rode a moment ago, polly, do you endorse this analysis that there is actually a policy of division coming from this number ten operation?” a policy of division coming from this number ten operation? i think there is no question that that is their strategy. to have witnessed those scenes in the house of commons last night which so many people who we re last night which so many people who were there felt were deeply traumatising and shocking and so different from anything we have experienced, certainly in my political lifetime, and to say we are enjoying it. frankly, ifind that really distasteful. but i also find the very fact that he is speaking out publicly to be distasteful. jonathan powell, tony blair's g ‘s of staff, ed llewellyn, gavin barwell, even nick timothy didn't speak publicly until he was out of government and to do this, to enjoy this dance while the country
11:43 pm
is tearing itself to pieces. i really fear for a country where somebody like that is in such a position of power. in fairness, he was speaking at a book launch of someone. a public event, on record remarks. he should be banned from speaking. he should abide by the special adviser code and should not speak publicly. give that does make he has changed the code, the code reports to him. he has changed it. there are all sorts of things that have happened but ijust there is a basic technically — make dignity to office. —— dignity. numberten represents not just office. —— dignity. numberten represents notjust a 17.4 million leave the voters was stoppage should ta ke leave the voters was stoppage should take that responsibility seriously. but it is also, it is the office of
11:44 pm
the whole country. i should feel represented by it, too. and the idea of this man mocking and loving people — make laughing at people — make laughing at people, it is distasteful. ———— laughing at people. matt has an early idea for the budget which we will all be on board four. he has done it again. he has two mps standing with a square box. ——0n has two mps standing with a square box. ——on board for. we have paid off the national debt. are quite a good line. you are in the states earlier. when boris johnson good line. you are in the states earlier. when borisjohnson had his nasty shock and donald trump had his nasty shock and donald trump had his nasty shock. this is based on the
11:45 pm
weather will blow a letter which ta kes weather will blow a letter which takes is a little bit further. —— whistleblower letter. they were meeting for the bilateral meeting for the meeting for the bilateral meeting forthe un. meeting for the bilateral meeting for the un. boris johnson meeting for the bilateral meeting for the un. borisjohnson heard the news of the supreme court and addressed it publicly straightaway. donald trump, as expected, picked up on it. he gave borisjohnson a bit of advice and look like the elder statesman, in a way. then nancy pelosi announced she is launching an impeachment enquiry. it wasn't a great day for donald trump. took us through the events —— talk us through the events —— talk us through the events —— talk us through the events. we have the whistleblower letter and details of aspects that nancy pelosi is focusing in on to allege a cover—up.
11:46 pm
at the heart of this is a phone call that donald trump had with volodymyr zelensky, the president of ukraine. there are transcript of residential phone calls and what has emerged is that the full transcript has been hidden away in an unusual manner. so in extra security area. that is raising questions in the us about was this because they were officials on the call that realised there was something they needed to perhaps keepa something they needed to perhaps keep a bit more secret here. polly, your assessment? it is interesting that donald trump and his supporters consider there is no smoking gun in this transcript. because he doesn't, of course, explicitly say, please can you investigatejoe biden to
11:47 pm
help me out and i will give you lots of money. but he does make it clear that the money is being held up. and then he segues into... do us a favour. biden's son. there is no kind of conjunctive words, so he thinks it is provided not do anything. it is a perfect phone call, in his language. some people have been arguing, legal commentators, it is classic mafia boss strong arm tactics, we have that tiny amount of plausible deniability. but the fact that this transcript seems to have been put into this extra secure storage does seem to suggest that officials were more worried than perhaps trump would be, wasn't the time, or even now. and are some suggestions that there are republican senators criticising this. they would need quite a view. impeachment needs a simple majority in the house but needs a two—thirds majority in the
11:48 pm
senate. it may suit the democrats to actually have, to say that they have impeached donald trump. heading into an election campaign. but still have him, even if they don't manage to get rid of him. so everyone is playing a bit of a game. possibly. possibly. anna, let us go through this one from the front page of the mail. £1 million a day. exactly. that is only one type of fraud. fraud has been, as a lot of people know, but you much everyone knows someone who has been affected by differential they have not been affected by themselves. fraud has been on the ropes fears. it is a massive problem because banks, if you think about it, fraudsters are one step ahead of banks —— rise for years. hackers are devising more and more clever hands investigated methods. what is worrying about this
11:49 pm
story is this trend for banks and financial institutions to increasingly say we are not going to pay out, because if you as a victim, you should have known better, if you should have realised that caller was a scammer, then we will not refund you. and the really worrying thing there is it is so subjective. they have written about scams where, in one example, the fraudster, the first call was to bank staff in a bank branch. they presented to be a customer, got details out of the bank, completely for them, and the next call was to the customer pretending to be bank style. but if you are falling bank branch staff, how are the banks expecting people to realise? especially if they are elderly or distracted, have many things to do. i am with you, think it is hard to imagine, isn't it, how you would hold the customer responsible at the end of the day with grappling with a systemic problem. particularly when talking
11:50 pm
about vulnerable customers. some research i have done suggests that there are push payments scams. there is a voluntary code for refunding customers that was brought in earlier this year. this trend of not refining people should have been reversed. it is quite concerning. the banks who want to make every transaction as easy as possible, remove friction, make everything, so you can pay millions of pounds by swiping right on your smartphone, they actually need to think again. lots of people want more friction, more checks and balances in the system. they don't want to be able to tra nsfer system. they don't want to be able to transfer thousands of pounds to the ukraine. it is a realtension. let us go back to the front page of the times. we did the brexit story.
11:51 pm
let us look at the story on the right—hand side. half of young people at university. the headline isa people at university. the headline is a little bit, i will say, one—sided. it is finally half of young people at university, a target set by tony blair in 1999. my reading of this is half of people are at university, but we're not saying what kind of quality of education they are getting, while also being laden with huge amounts of student debt. not necessarily celebrating. is the times celebrating? i think he would finally possibly suggests... they are celebrating. i think they a right to be celebrating. the economy, we are in competition with countries all around the world, are used to work and live in china, a vast number of high skilled people. india producing millions of them every year. india producing millions of them every yea r. if india producing millions of them every year. if we want to compete we
11:52 pm
need to educate our workforce more. it does not need to be in universities. apprenticeships are important. but i think this is really welcome news. and we have to stop talking about it as dead. it is a liability you pay once you are earning a good graduate salary. in most people won't pay it off in full. it puts people off university, especially poor people, if we talk about it as debt. one sentence each on boaty mcboatface becomes the so david attenborough. it is a lovely picture. a beautiful picture seeing david attenborough with this vote named in his honour. just wish they had called it boaty mcboatface. they do have a little submarine called boaty mcboatface. fantastic. that is good. is there anyone more deserving than sir david attenborough? he looks like he is having a lovely day. and he fist bump day baby. we
11:53 pm
are out of time. —— fist bumped a baby. 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 — 7 days a week at — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you anna mikhailova and polly mackenzie. goodbye. good evening, here's your latest sports news. it's two wins with two bonus points for england at the rugby world cup after they ran in seven tries to beat the usa 45 points to seven in kobe. the match will also remembered for the first red card of the tournament with us flanker john quill dismissed for a shoulder charge on owen farrell. we are pleased where we are, after
11:54 pm
two games with ten points, we have conceded one try, had two fantastic experiences in sapporo and gobi. it isa experiences in sapporo and gobi. it is a great rugby city. great occasion. we are happy to be part of it. can we play better? yes, and we know we can. and we will need to play better in our best game. so england six points clear at the top of pool c — but they have played a game more and tougher games are to come against argentina and france. meanwhile in pool b there was also a seven try win for italy, 48—7 against canada. essex have won cricket's county championship title for the second time in three years. they secured the draw they needed against somerset at taunton after a match that had been severely affected by the weather, but still managed to deliver a twist. essex collapsed to 141 all out on the final day in reply to somerset‘s 203. somerset then forfeited their second innings in a desperate bid to pull off a remarkable victory
11:55 pm
by taking ten quick wickets. but they only managed one, so the match was drawn. enough for essex to start their celebrations. this is the reason why i carried on playing, is to try to create some memories. they have grown up with these guys, people like tom westley, rain tender, particularly in terms of, they are the guys they have spent a lot of time in and out of the dressing room with them. it is great to spend an entire season with them and to win a trophy is so special. these things don't come around very often. i know we have 12 and three. a lot of people are lucky enough to win it once —— two in three. glasgow city ladies and wsl champions arsenal are both through to the last 16 of the women's champions league. arsenal beat fiorentina 2—0
11:56 pm
in their second leg to progress 6—0 on aggregate. and despite conceding a goal early on, glasgow scored four, including this great strike from rachel mclauchan to make it through 5—1 on aggregate. the draw for the last 16 takes place on monday. bury‘s hopes of an immediate return to the football league are over. a vote of the efl‘s other 71 clubs rejected a proposal for them to to be readmitted to league two next season. bury, who were in league one, were expelled in august following the collapse of a late takeover bid. but instead of allowing them back, the clubs decided that one team will be relegated from league two at the end of the season and three clubs from league one — restoring the efl to 72 teams. derby county captain richard keogh has been ruled out until the end of the season due to a serious knee injury sustained in a car crash that led to the arrest of two team—mates. tom lawrence and mason bennett were both charged with drink—driving. keogh was a passenger in a range rover driven by lawrence. the collision happened on the outskirts of derby on tuesday night following team—building dinner organised by the club.
11:57 pm
the club said "those involved know they will pay a heavy price for their actions" but they will be supported with their " rehabilitation back into the squad and team". salford are one match away from their first super league grand final after beating castleford in the playoffs. their elimination semi—final was completely one—sided, with salford in control throughout. jackson hastings rounding off their 22—0 win with their third try of the match. salford will play the loser of tomorrow's game between wigan and st helens for a place in the grand final. that's all the sport for now. morning. it has been awesome proper this week. we started off on monday with some very heavy rain. it was a miserable start to a new working week. some places in one month's worth of rain injust 24 week. some places in one month's worth of rain in just 24 hours. the middle of the week has not been too
11:58 pm
bad. sunny spells and scattered showers. if you have dodged the showers. if you have dodged the showers as it has been reasonably pleasant. more wet and windy weather to come. it is this system here that is waiting out in the atlantic. it will push its way steadily eastwards towards the uk for the weekend. ahead of it, circulating around an area of low pressure, a rush of schar driving their way in. so sunny spells and scattered showers continue today. some of them merging together in the south—west longer spells of rain, driven in by strong, gusty winds. there will be sharper showers across the first england and north wales as well. the rest of the drier, brighter, sunnier moments perhaps across scotland a not bad in northern ireland as well. highs of a 14- 18 northern ireland as well. highs of a 14— 18 celsius. as we move out of friday that area of low pressure will have to eastwards into the north sea. things will quieten down across the country. it will be a breezy day on saturday but saturday sta rts breezy day on saturday but saturday starts off relatively quiet. a few scattered showers around but there will be some lengthy sunny spells as well, not a bad afternoon for many.
11:59 pm
we do need to keep a close eye on the rain gathering into the south—west. the timings of this could change and affect the story for the second half of the weekend. ahead of it, dry, 14— 18 degrees, the higher. overnight saturday into sunday looks likely we will see some very heavy rain, 23 inches falling into england or wales. ——2— three inches. gales in excess of 40—50 mild per hour. as the low drift away, maybe 60 mild an hourfor a time across eastern england. it could start off wet. have a lazy morning and, you never know, that man could clear away and things could be a little better. the wind direction starting to change. still a blustery afternoon. coming from the north and scotland. it will make it cooler. a scattering of showers. top temperatures 13— 18 degrees. just in case you haven't already got the message, at the moment it looks likely that saturday will be a case of sunny spells and a few showers.
12:00 am
sunday will start off wet and windy, but that will is away. take care. keep a bit more secret here. polly, your assessment? i'm sharanjit leyl in singapore, the headlines: a furious response from donald trump — after claims the white house tried to ‘cover up' details of his phone call with ukraine's president. what these guys are doing, democrats, are doing to this country, is a disgrace and it shouldn't be allowed. there should bea shouldn't be allowed. there should be a way of stopping it. tackling britain's toxic politics. borisjohnson tries to cool tempers over brexit — but refuses to apologise for his own language. i'm reged ahmad in london. also in the programme: security fears ahead of afghanistan presidential election.
