but in were on the bbc in —— war. but in downing street, there is this habit tojump downing street, there is this habit to jump change downing street, there is this habit tojump change and it downing street, there is this habit to jump change and it does seem a little proportion that you could potentially go to prison for not paying something which is not true for any other service, such as not paying electricity bill. this is an idea of a tiered system where if you watch lots of bbc, you would pay more if hejust watch lots of bbc, you would pay more if he just watched a little bit of it, just use the website, you would pay less but the passwords and it is all coming out of the consultation, not problem though because public really value the bbc, particularly the news elements and also a lot of the entertainment in the sense that the op ed, basically, the sense that the op ed, basically, the bbc moving into the digital world to compete with netflix, and competitive blockbusters saying that it is going out of date. at any time
the bbc tries to do that, it also gets attacked for spending too much on making commercial entertainment tv when that is not it's purpose. the government needs to know what needs to be forewarned about how it is funded. needs to be that the bbc held the government to account and now is looking like it's the other way around. a point is being reached in with the telegraph in his story is suggesting is that there could be a tiered subscriber model which could pay a licence fee if you just wa nt could pay a licence fee if you just want radio, or just could pay a licence fee if you just want radio, orjust want different elements of the package, which i can kind of see samaritan because if you're paying the licence fee, there might bea you're paying the licence fee, there might be a pressure to be, have something for everyone on every channel neck and see where you've got netflix snapping at your heels and other streaming services are available. there could be benefits and that, and whenever it was seven oreight and that, and whenever it was seven or eight years ago, netflix is basically a non—entity in the uk,
and noticed a million subscribers. i can see why this as being a big suggestion. what are you both think, that the public actually realised just how embedded the bbc is in terms of the news in the entertainment that they receive?” don't think so. because they don't physically watch the channel. they're not getting the service, but their kids may watch the channel, they might listen to the radio, they may go on the news website, all of those things for people don't need the licence to listen to the radio, i guess with the problem is that people who do pay the licence fee are subsidizing those who don't but if you want the news website and all the educational offerings be free, you have to find it somehow. let us turn to the front page of the ftm will start with the tax rate. is going to find the money from somewhere, hasn't he? the budget is
coming up in the conservative government, borisjohnson coming up in the conservative government, boris johnson made coming up in the conservative government, borisjohnson made a lot of promises about infrastructure spending and spending on the nhs, but is also the party of fiscal responsibility and the money has to come from somewhere and so he is looking at ways to fund that gap in one of which is by reducing the tax relief on pensions which generally benefits high earners and also encourage people to save their pensions which is what we need to do because we are living longer and that needs to be funded in some way. i'm reminded of a quote from the wonderful musical hamilton, winning is easy, government is harder. promising a lot of things to a lot of people and now he actually has to enacted in the budget is the first protest of government, how are they going to do that, how the going to keep those thoughts that they won without alienating their base and the people were going to be disadvantaged by their pensions. and they're not going to please
everyone, they had to different, that the level of the country, which this is what all of this is about. but is also interesting about this is sajid javid really pitching himself asjohnson's is sajid javid really pitching himself as johnson's ally in this project because there is a reshuffle coming up on thursday or friday and there have been rumours that he might be promoted from the treasury, a little bit of uncertainty and so here is him proving to be this seller to johnson. here is him proving to be this seller to johnson. staying on the front page, the picture is quite astonishing, isn't it? it is a mass wedding in south korea and they are all wearing face masks because they're worried about coronavirus and notes that there have been 31,000 61 cases and 600 deaths, mainly name and china but south korea is very close. it is a
staggering picture that's less about the facemasks but being reminded that mass wedding still happen. it is one of those greatjust the positions because classic wedding imagery with the facemask kind of shows how it is infiltrating every aspect of peoples lives, i will postpone the wedding if it had been me. you might not seem to many more photos like this, people stockpiling an apparently health workers more importantly not being able to get access to them and is even a market for the facemasks. there is always a market for faking, isn't it. turning to the inside page, page 47 of the times business section and it is the economic impact that this virus is not having. people asked me how worried i am in the terms of my own health, not very much because it
seems to be much more contained and not as deadly as other illnesses they cannot doing thing about it. but the economic impact is one that is going to us all. the warning has been issued about the risk to the global economy and there is coach, which i cannot pronounce, and these of the luxury brands that often rely oi'i of the luxury brands that often rely on chinese consumer spending either in china or abroad, people are not travelling, men are not shopping and it is hitting a lot of luxury markets and supply chains and you cannotjust grind markets and supply chains and you cannot just grind the markets and supply chains and you cannotjust grind the global economy to halt for a month. . and the luxury market relies on the love of travel and the people going out to the shops but there's also been stories emerging about the car industry, and people cannot get parts, the stalling is also an issue at fast food and i think starbucks ofa
at fast food and i think starbucks of a supply issue and so, suggestions are coming from the state government earlier today that there might be a slight dip that they will ultimately inspect from study a lot most people look at these luxury brands and say, that does not matter, but it does we look at these supply chains and monday is at these supply chains and monday is a key date that everybody is watching because that is the day that the factories are meant to open up that the factories are meant to open up and we'll see if the orders will be filled. let's see what the page of the daily mail. the big bank booking. so the paper reports. saying they've made their first private appearance, isn't that a contradiction? they have appeared at aj.p. morgan and i think contradiction? they have appeared at a j.p. morgan and i think they breed the oxygen may have had a drink and they have not ceased to exist since you seem they have not ceased to exist since you seem to be royals.” they have not ceased to exist since you seem to be royals. i think there's going to be the first of many headlines that were going to
see like this over the coming year. yeah, we are big scant detail about the conference and i think they spoke at a think they're going to introduce and give some keynote speech, but we do not know how much they will pay for doing it. or if they will pay for doing it. or if they were paid at all and i think i'll be the question for a lot of people. report suggesting that they could be the most bankable couple in the world right now in terms of private speaking fees and we do not have the detail yet but i suspect the next level the story. have the detail yet but i suspect the next levelthe story. do have the detail yet but i suspect the next level the story. do you think they'll still matter, that this decision has been made by buckingham palace and the are now removed from the official royal duties, but what they're paid would still matter to us? i do not think anything in their lives of the matter for their royals, some probably the wrong person to ask, but there is a huge amount of clearly fascination and also u nfortu nately
clearly fascination and also unfortunately anger in this country about what they have done and i imagine that every move will be watched very closely until something else comes along and another royal axe and another scandalous when we can all move on. details around their security arrangements are relatively unclear, so i think is thatis relatively unclear, so i think is that is zoomed in on, a little bit more, a bit more transparentm that is zoomed in on, a little bit more, a bit more transparent if they are being paid in upwards of £1 million per engagement, then i think we'll see some more animosity towards them. but if they're being paid that much in funding their own private lifestyle, does that mean we can relax a bit about them because they're paying for their own security, i feel it will have a right to be angry about them if we feel that they are earning this money and it's ordinary taxpayers affording their lifestyle, if not, can we please move on? just to clarify, this coming from the us mediaj.p.
clarify, this coming from the us media j. p. morgan declined clarify, this coming from the us mediaj.p. morgan declined comment and sussex spokesperson also declined comment on a private schedule in place, so more and more of that in the coming weeks and months, but rachel and claire, thank you very much for this edition and will be back again at 1130 for another look at the papers. do not forget they are all online for you at the bbc news claire and rachel will be back at 11.30 for another look at the papers, and 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 bbc.co.uk/papers — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. many thanks to claire and rachel for joining me and thank you for watching. the headlines are coming up, first here's the weather.
hello. to answer the question. the big question is how strong will the wind get. ciara arrives on sunday and the whole of the country, can be up and the whole of the country, can be up dated so make sure you stay tuned to the latest weather warnings. as far as ciara goes, it is one of the strongest suggestions i've seen with the winds 250 miles an hour. six miles above the earths atmosphere, thatis miles above the earths atmosphere, that is what makes this intensity of low pressure. you'll feel the impacts from during sunday. and bentivegna is weakening across the uk bentivegna is weakening across the u k followed bentivegna is weakening across the uk followed by the west later on but it left the court temperature fall toa it left the court temperature fall to a degree celsius or something like that. saturday morning, the sun will come out for a time, across england and wales, but then later
on, for northern ireland in western scotland, cloudy with heavy outbreaks of rain and gusts of 70 miles an hour northern ireland and scotla nd miles an hour northern ireland and scotland and that is strong enough to cause some disruption and as well as that there will be some snow over the scottish hills for a time. and then through saturday night, a band of heavy rain pushes its way eastwards and for its time in scotland, a blustery kind of night everywhere in mild again, but then we are watching for the arrival of storm ciara. an area of low pressure and isobars squeezing together in the toe shoe is always going to be a windy kind of day and as far as the windy kind of day and as far as the wind goes, it will be pretty much nationwide but into distinct bursts of strong wind. the first of these goes across northern ireland and into scotland and noticed the squeeze through the central belt as we had to sunday afternoon and that in itself could cause some problems worse for south, across england and
wales, what happens is a band of heavy intense rain and ahead of this band of rain, this really did strongest gusts of wind come and 18 miles an hour for some and the strong winds will stay the strongest first six to nine hours. they'll be affecting most parts of the country. so storm ciara, transports on the road, the rails and airports to be affected and so too could fairies and also some power outage. uses a windy weather but particularly so on sunday as storm ciara brings in some stormy conditions to the uk.
this is bbc news. i'm lukwesa burak. the headlines at 11pm: british tourist alan steel, who was on his honeymoon, is one of 61 people now being treated for coronavirus onboard a quarantined cruiseliner in japan. things are happening literally every hour, something is changing. in china, the authorities get heavy—handed, forcing people suspected of having the virus into quarantine. a gp from east london is given three life sentences for committing dozens of sexual offences against female patients. there are calls for more support for children who experience, or witness domestic violence or abuse. i was getting to the point where i didn't like myself very much because
