moment. right now, still low pressure in control, but look into the weekend, these weather systems just focused the rain towards southernmost areas. this is where it has been wettest, there are flood warnings. elsewhere it does tend to be drier over the weekend with sunshine and showers. more on the weekend in the moment does make in a moment, we still have to get through friday. more rain affecting lingual —— england under. mainly dry in the west, a few fog patches that are slow to clear in northern ireland. soggyin slow to clear in northern ireland. soggy in north—east england and midlands into the afternoon, it will feel colder but it isn't as windy. eventually we will get rid of this rain overnight and into saturday morning. goodbye, good riddance. all owing on, a fuchsia showers especially to england and wales cricket board heavy and a rumble of thunder —— england and wales with showers that will be happy. saturday, turning dry with showers, there are some coming to southernmost areas. this is the one putting in later on saturday. we
11:31 pm
start saturday, we start the weekend with some bright spells, occasional glimpses of sunshine, a few showers around, it looks like a lot of these are going to fade the rain pushing into ward southern england and south wales, this could be quite heavy in places. again, this is where we have saturated ground and flooding in some places, that isn't going to help. uncertainty about how far north that will go, pulling away on sunday, and then on sunday to sunny spells, a few showers, most of these across western parts of the uk, and temperatures into single figures for most of us now, not too far from average for this time of year. let's ta ke average for this time of year. let's take a picture on sunday into monday, low pressure to the north of us, this north—westerly blow setting up us, this north—westerly blow setting up around that, and to the further south you are, more rain. it may just be the channel islands but many friends to southern counties of england. we will watch that on monday, elsewhere, a few showers, more especially towards north—western areas, the most
11:32 pm
frequent coming into western parts of scotland. that takes us on tuesday, christmas eve. we have that north—westerly flow, bright breezy colours for many of us, so was more targeted to the north—west and look how great is at stage across southern parts of wales and england. again, mainly single figures. let's ta ke again, mainly single figures. let's take a look at the jet stream. there are some changes as we go deeper into next week, this north—westerly flow initially, bright, breezy and showery at the start of the week but thenit showery at the start of the week but then it looks like this bulge in the jet stream, a ridge of high pressure will move in. some uncertainty about how much of you get up, but when you see anything like that, it does mean there is going to be more settled weather for a there is going to be more settled weatherfor a time. this is our christmas week. we noticed it starts showery but it turns with high pressure building in, drier. it will feel colder but temperatures close to average. dog patches building and frost for some of us. so, no festive gift in terms of snow, while widespread next week, but an end to
11:33 pm
the rain. this hello. this is bbc news with shaun ley. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment. first the headlines. more than thirty bills have been announced, with seven covering the uk's
11:34 pm
depature from the eu. a cash injection for the nhs is to be made law there were also promises of safer streets with the recruitment of more police officers and tougher action on the most dangerous criminals. scotland's first minister, nicola sturgeon has set out her plans for another independence referendum, and has warned borisjohnson not to "block the will of the scottish people." the watchdog that oversees complaints in the armed forces has called on the ministry of defence to do more to tackle racism. new figures reveal the worst ever performance at accident and emergency units in welsh hospitals. less than 75% of patients were seen within four hours in november. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow.
11:35 pm
with me are the talkradio presenter, daisy mcandrew, and sian griffiths, education & families editor at the sunday times. nice to have you both with us. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the telegraph splashes with what it calls the government's "radical" queen's speech. borisjohnson‘s smile contrasting sharply with jeremy corbyn‘s stony expression. that same striking image dominates the guardian, with attention drawn to the dismay felt by labour mps at the significant changes made to the brexit withdrawal bill since the tory election victory. the mail's reports a demand from the health minister for all nhs staff to get the flu vaccine, revealing that one in four health workers haven't yet had it. the metro carries the tragic story of a 47—year—old woman who died on the pavement from a cardiac arrest after falling over and waiting six hours for an ambulance to arrive. and the ft‘s front page is dominated by its report that former head of the financial conduct authority andrew bailey is favourite to replace mark carney as governor
11:36 pm
of the bank of england. there will be an announcement tomorrow. the times says that the bank of england faces scrutiny over a security breach that gave traders early access to market information. and the sun leads with the news that wayne rooney has a tunnel underneath his house linking the main house to his garage. no danger of wayne rooney getting wet than! i have to say, it looks like, that wonderful song, why does it always rain on me forfour like, that wonderful song, why does it always rain on me for fourjeremy corbyn because it looks like he's having a horrible day. most of the papers prominent... that mischievous expression on boris johnson's papers prominent... that mischievous expression on borisjohnson‘s face as well. watch it on the telly and
11:37 pm
jeremy corbyn striding ahead, refusing to look at borisjohnson let alone talk to him. which is not tradition. you put aside... even the least sociable of prime minister would still make the effort to talk. maybe not margaret thatcher... that is the body language. very revealing. it is kind of a weird queen's speech because we have had it all before eight weeks ago. the difference is that the last queen's speech number took any notice of. whereas this one is written in stone because the conservative government
11:38 pm
can get through pretty much what it wa nts. can get through pretty much what it wants. no matter your political bent, that has to be a good thing forgetting things done. the last three years very little legislation went through. groundhog day. small parties and factions having much more power than they really deserve. at least now thanks will be done. i know that will not be music to everybody‘s heirs but it will make parliament work better. —— ears. everybody‘s heirs but it will make parliament work better. -- ears. the implication is that he has changed to something. it is a story about borisjohnson setting to something. it is a story about boris johnson setting out to something. it is a story about borisjohnson setting out his vision for the conservatives. 36 bills and at the heart of the brexit bill, of
11:39 pm
course, the european withdrawal bill. guaranteeing britain will leave on january 31 of what the guardian is violating is that the brexit bill has been watered down and it's text significantly altered since the wind. it has stripped out the protections for workers right, wanted and a commitment to take unaccompanied refugee children. it is all to stop extending beyond 2020. labour really, really do not like this. all these concessions we re like this. all these concessions were put anything brexit bill before the election to get it over the line and now he does not need them and he has stripped all of this stuff out. the shadow brexit secretary has said the legislation will pave a harder and extreme brexit. an interesting battle because everybody appeared to get beyond... we all agree about
11:40 pm
brexit now and things like workers right. i knew working class blue—collar worker friendly conservative party winning votes in the north. it makes you wonder whether some of those tory mps raise their hands and say, hang on a minute, we're not so keen on this stuff. the big stuff we buy, we want a free trade deal, get out of the eu... but how we sell ourselves to oui’ eu... but how we sell ourselves to our new constituencies. that is where an awful lot of infrastructure announcements promise in the campaign and it looks like they would be delivered and that is to appease the mps in those areas desperate for... you will get a shiny new hospital... you will get a new train line and if the infrastructure does notjust provide the service but also provides jobs
11:41 pm
and the rest of things, a better trade link between east and west rather than north and south and they will make a big difference but they ta ke will make a big difference but they take time. will they be done by the next election? that is why he is talking about ten years, not five yea rs talking about ten years, not five years and then the reform of the nhs is the other big story and that will ta ke is the other big story and that will take time and that is a crisis which the labour party knows full well because they have banged on about it... and rightly so, rightly so to bang on about the nhs. 95% of bang on about the nhs. 9596 of english and welsh patients not getting seen within four hours. they did move the agenda, they moved the tories and in the queen's speech there are bills to spend more on schools, the nhs and i do not think
11:42 pm
that would have happened had not labour 's that would have happened had not labour '5 election manifesto promise to spend, spend, spend and reverse austerity. austerity seems to at least be halted. johnson promises a golden age for britain. what do the two of you make by the argument made by the folder —— former liberal democratic leader that says one of the mistakes they made is that they we re the mistakes they made is that they were too negative and they gave the conservatives the opportunity to own the future, be optimistic about the future, about what britain could achieve which meant they did not have to talk about the austerity of the past nine years. politically it could have been quite debatable and actually too much combination of sanctimonious negativity made it less attractive for the opposition
11:43 pm
rather than to vote for a man who promise an optimistic future. even when you dissect the slogan of get brexit done and i know the words aren't the whole thing but it is forward moving, it is active, it is showing some sort of action and movement and, of course, even where the statements are not the same. it does not encapsulate the absolute bottom of stagnation and wanting to move on and get on with things. there were lots of problems with the liberal democratic party. some terrible ideas. even remain as found some unpalatable. people who voted remain wished that brexit was not happening does not mean they want to revoke article 50. it is a different thing. that was a big problem for
11:44 pm
the campaign. it is undemocratic to ignore the wishes of the majority. and they assume that people who voted remain would approve. it is a lazy assumption. it is not clever in their thinking. the assumption that tribalism will get through anything. interesting little news in brief on the front of the telegraph. violence is becoming normal. this is not about there are not enough police officers but how we interact with other people on a day—to—day life. and especially how youngsters interact with each other and other people. violence is becoming normal and we do have an epidemic of knife crime across the country. teenagers and younger children even, children in primary school taking knives to
11:45 pm
school, and often it is linked to drugs and crime, gangs. the police have been saying this for quite a long time. they are actually going into schools, talking to children, begging them not to carry knives stop an awful lot of work going on to stop young people from joining gangs. the need to be a more holistic approach according to some. you cannot lock up all these kids or do you try to sort out and educate and help the families. this is a very sad story because the police chief warning comes after a 14—year—old boy was found guilty of stabbing a man to death after a petty row over a bicycle. and someone stabbed in newcastle because he brushed somebody. his first
11:46 pm
response was not available but to get out a screwdriver. some i know more about this than i do, but the trials really seem to have had surgeons come into talk to kids if you get stabbed or what happens when there is a stabbing. people just tend to think i bet this kid didn't think this was going to die. theyjust think it is... inflicting a wound, it will have a bit of blood and shock. and it will work because the cable know i'm strong than killing the guy and ending in prison —— because the guy will know i'm strong. they singled us will know i'm strong. they singled us it's a moment when the child is really badly wounded, then you can get to them and say this has to. the
11:47 pm
really sad thing is we hear about the deaths of the federal stabbings, a lot of these kids come out of the hospitals in wheelchairs, they have colostomy bags. 12 in the -- for the rest of their life because they got stabbed. so many victims were school—age victims. stabbed. so many victims were school-age victims. and some great work that has been done in glasgow to lower knife crime. that is the holistic approach. let's talk about the new york times. it's not often we do the international new york times was not it is a famously liberal —— it is a famously liberal paper. but it has this wonderful photo of donald trump looking out on a christmas scene. he's got the
11:48 pm
lights there in the rose garden. he's not in a good mood. this was the time he was being last night. interesting thing is on the left—hand side there there there is a common piece by senator kamala harris. you just pulled out of the leadership for the democrats. donald trump has been calling her chicken. of course. she is talking about how the next stage will happen. i understand that christmas donna congress has gone christmas holidays without sorting out how this impeachment will work. we will have nothing more about it in seal january six or seven or something like that. meanwhile, they are also hugging each other off. she is saying the leader of the senate, mitch mcconnell, is already skewing
11:49 pm
it and it isn't going to be a fair hearing —— already slagging each other off. so we will have weeks and weeks before we know how it will work and what the terms are and how it will be run. we are raising through this, forgive me. we will jump through this, forgive me. we will jump onto the ft, if you don't mind. the big news is about another north american who will soon be heading home to canada, come february. mark carney, we enjoy having him as governor, not everybody has enjoyed having him as governor, the brexiteer thought he was a bit of a wet bla n ket brexiteer thought he was a bit of a wet blanket at the time of the referendum that he held his ground does make asateers —— brexiteer. they are tipping andrew bailey, he's a former deputy governor the bank. it looks as though he will be
11:50 pm
announced tomorrow as the governor. it's interesting because it has been a lot of talk about having the first female governor, maurice —— morissey and others. it looks like that won't happen and andrew bailey will take the topjob stop happen and andrew bailey will take the top job stop sources close to sajid javid indicated the candidates have been vetted on the basis of whether their views are compatible with the direction of the new government. hm. some candidates were rejected because of this because she had critical views on brexit. he's not going to be like mr carney. he is following a bit of a glamorous bank of england governor, and how often would have you been able to say that over the years? he is slightly dull and sort of... there
11:51 pm
isa slightly dull and sort of... there is a lot to be said for dull bankers. there is, but he has had a couple of problems of his own. he had the woodford case they blew up earlier this year and the front page of the times, the trainers who have been getting the audio. i've sat in many of those bank of england press conferences and they are incredibly careful. you have to hand in your phone when you arrive, it's all incredibly sensitive. and they have been tsolakis. andrew bailey's current body is now enquiring, and then he will have to apologise to himself —— they have been so slack. and let's finish with this one, on the front of the times, we will leave trees and laws for another time, how to avoid getting ill on an aeroplane, what is the secret? time, how to avoid getting ill on an aeroplane, what is the secret7m has ruined many holidays. according
11:52 pm
to the institute of sport, which has offered this advice to all of its competitors, they have a set of guidelines to avoid getting the flu. they say don't sit near the lavatories, she a window seat to avoid coming into contact with those in the aisle. you won't get anything from the windows, no—one will open a window. passengers are also advised to adjust the air—conditioning and clean the arms as with disinfectant —— armrests. clean the arms as with disinfectant -- armrests. i think that would feel quite insulting. that's it for the papers tonight. you can see the front pages on the bbc news website and you can watch it on bbc iplayer. thank you, daisy mcandrew, and sian griffiths.
11:53 pm
i hope to see you before christmas. goodbye. stay tuned for sport and the weather and then from midnight it's newsday. good evening. i'm austin halewood. here's your latest sports news. arsenal are closing in on their new manager. we understand mikel arteta has said his goodbyes at manchester city, where he's been assistant coach under pep guardiola, for the past three years. he's expected to be announced as the new boss at the emirates tomorrow. they were scheduled to have their pre—match press conference ahead of saturday's game against everton today, but that's been postponed until tomorrow now when they expect arteta's appointment to be confirmed. well, caretaker manager
11:54 pm
duncan ferguson will be in the everton dugout for the game against arsenal. ferguson has been in temporary charge for the past three matches, overseeing a win against chelsea at goodison, a draw at manchester united and a defeat on penalties against leicester in the carabao cup this week. the club though are said to be closing in on the appointment of the former napoli and chelsea boss carlo ancelotti. macclesfield town have been deducted six points after pleading guilty to numerous efl charges. these include non—payment of salaries and the non—fulfilment of a league two match against crewe alexandra on december seventh. a further four—point sanction has been suspended. the punishment means macclesfield drop from 15th to 22nd in league two. now, to rugby union. scotland captain greig laidlaw has announced his retirement from the international game after nine years and 76 caps. he led the national team 39 times — more than anyone else.
11:55 pm
the 34—year—old scrum—half made his last appearance for scotland in the rugby world cup defeat to japan in october. he ends his international career, second only to chris patterson on the all—time points list for scotland with 714. he was an exceptional leader, he led in an old—fashioned way, you might say. but it works for everyone and the environment he was in. i wouldn't say that he was deficient in any area, something he focused a lot on, leadership, was what set him apart. he was one of the first names his decision—making was impeccable, his decision—making was impeccable, his application was excellent. his leadership will probably be the main thing he will be remembered for but everything else was at a pretty high level as well. the leeds rhinos' and england's
11:56 pm
scrum half rob burrow has been diagnosed with motor neurone disease. and two challenge cups in 17 years with the super league side. burrow, who retired back in 2017, is now the head coach for the club's reserve team. when he went in the room and told me, it was a bit of a shock. there was no sort of prep for being told you've got something where there is no cure. so, you know, it happened. i went for a run and did some planks. england's world cup winning captain, eoin morgan, has landed an ipl contract worth more than £500,000. he'll bejoining the kolkata knight riders. jason roy, chris woakes and sam curran have all earned six—figure contracts. kolkata also spent £1.7 million on australian fast bowler pat cummins, making him the most expensive overseas player
11:57 pm
in ipl history. 0nly yuvraj singh — twice — and gautam gambhir have previously gone for more. cummins is currently the number one test bowler in the world. the double 0lympic boxing champion, nicola adams says she's now looking to turn her hand to acting. she announced her retirement from the sport last month, after fears that she may lose her sight. it was tough at first just to make the decision, but now i'm quite happy. i've achieved a lot of great things, becoming a double 0lympic champion, becoming a world champion asa champion, becoming a world champion as a professional boxer as well. i'm happy with that, i'm concerned i've come out of boxing at the top of my game. so, when i look back, i'm like yeah, i've done really, really well. i can't complain.
11:58 pm
that's all your sport for now. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. that's have a good night. hello. the ranges kept on coming to many of us on thursday. the ground is very wet indeed and that has a ready been flooding in places. with a bit more rain in the forecast, further flooding looks likely across parts of england and wales. you can see some showers to the north—west, fog patches for northern ireland, some very heavy and persistent rain affecting eastern england. some renal pull away into the afternoon was the midlands. elsewhere, it turns into a day of sunny spells and showers, somewhat cooler than we have had over the last day or so, 6-7d -- that have had over the last day or so, 6—7d —— that rain will pull away. it's somewhat sillier saturday night
11:59 pm
than we're used to. we had into the weekend, a mix of sunshine and showers with persistent rain likely in the south on saturday night.
12:00 am
i'm rico hizon in singapore, the headlines. a state of emergency in new south wales as australia's highest recorded temperatures continue to fuel more than a hundred bushfires. more bitter division in us politics as republicans and democrats continue to argue over the impeachment of president trump. i'm ben bland in london. also in the programme: police in india detain thousands of demonstrators as anger grows over a controversial new citizenship law. and, it's one of the most successful stage shows of all time — but reviews for the movie version of cats are,
