people to do the same, says the mail in an exclusive. the mirror front page carries images of celebrities who have declared that they will too "give the jab a stab" in an attempt to ease public concerns. care home residents have been told they have to travel by bus to hospital hubs to receive covid vaccinations, says the people. the observer reports that military planes will be used to transport the pfizer vaccine from belgium to the uk in a bid to avoid brexit delays at ports. the telegraph says borisjohnson is giving the trade deal "one final throw of the dice" by sending his brexit negotiator to brussels for "intensive talks". the times says if there is no progress, mrjohnson‘s cabinet are prepared to back him on a no—deal brexit, adding that the pm intends to place the blame squarley on the eu. so, let's begin.
let's start with brexit. the final throw of the dice is the headline in the sunday times and a photograph of borisjohnson at 11:55pm figuratively —— figuratively, and may be literally! what is your reading of where these talks are going or not going. we are in the endgame now. we have 25 days until the transition period ends. let's not forget it is li.5 years since the people of britain voted to leave the european union, that is 1600 days i think, and they haven't yet come to a deal. the european union tend to do things at the last minute, but they really are leaving it to the last minute. if you look at what they are facing now, there is that internal market bill comment before parliament which would break
international law in order to keep oui’ international law in order to keep our sovereignty after we left the european union with a new deal. i can be taken off the table of course if there is a deal. 0n can be taken off the table of course if there is a deal. on thursday, you have the last meeting of the european council when all 27 member states are together, so a deal can be put before them. before that happens, any deal that is made has to be translated into all languages because they will all want to read every line of this deal, so time really is tight and it was put last night to me by one minister as a 50-50, at night to me by one minister as a 50—50, at best. night to me by one minister as a 50-50, at best. shyama, let's look at the sunday times, cabinet backs borisjohnson over at the sunday times, cabinet backs boris johnson over an no—deal brexit. are we heading for a no—deal? brexit. are we heading for a no-deal? boris johnson looks like mr micawber, you know, some people turn up micawber, you know, some people turn up and at one minute to midnight he is still hoping that he can pull something off. the good news, if there is good news in the sunday times, he has cabinet backs —— backing on a hard exit. he says
there are eight remainders in the cabinet he would support boris if we have to fall off the cliff, we will all fall off it together, singing rule britannia. that is a comfort to know that the cabinet is not split over it. the whole thing at the momentjust over it. the whole thing at the moment just seems to over it. the whole thing at the momentjust seems to be... it is not attractively last minute, it is crazily last—minute. attractively last minute, it is crazily last-minute. dave, was it a lwa ys crazily last-minute. dave, was it always inevitable it is crazily last—minute. dave, was always inevitable that would be last minute? everybody said this and people were panicking last year, a lot of people saying if you know the european union this is how it will happen, but we didn't really believe it. they kept saying that august was the last chance, then 0ctober, it. they kept saying that august was the last chance, then october, that really is the last chance, and we are being told now this is the last chance. people don't really believe that. they expect to be sitting there in that quiet week between
christmas and new year when your top button of your choice restaurant on, eating stilton cheese and watching the television and in new slash will come out to say we have two days to go and we have struck a deal! i wouldn't be surprised if that happens. it really is late. the tone of the conversation between the prime minister and ursula von der leyen yesterday, it lasted for an hour. he basically told her that the european union have been dragging their feet, that when they had a chance to do a deal in the summer they spent more time talking about legal texts instead of getting around to it. now emmanuel macron has come into mounting ten years of fishing rights, complete access to british waters, and more punitive ta riffs if british waters, and more punitive tariffs if we don't obey eu rules. of course, that is just not a cce pta ble of course, that is just not acceptable by the british government. we are still! million miles away on these three big issues. we just had a picture of
your christmas there, port, stilton, and a bulging waistline! let's look at the observer, shyama. they are talking about military planes flying vaccines in to avoid ports that may be hit by huge delays because of the brexit situation. absolutely. we saw the five mile queue of lorries when france decided to test brexit rules la st france decided to test brexit rules last week. going on for what david just said, it is all very well thinking that our politicians can get things result over christmas, but what about all of our traders, oui’ but what about all of our traders, our manufacturers, or hauliers? what is the chance of them having it all in place by the beginning of 2021 if we have left at this late? sensibly, the observer is reporting that tens of millions of doses of the vaccine, which is manufactured in belgium, are going to be flown over in
military helicopters to ensure, because they are so time—limited, to ensure that we get them in time to be able to deploy them intelligently. we have moved sea mlessly intelligently. we have moved seamlessly from brexit to the subject of the covid vaccine. the mail on sunday? story, the queen will get the vaccine within weeks, and this is partly, not that she is jumping the queue, that is being stressed, but the idea is to persuade anyone who has any doubts about the vaccine that it is very much safer. yes, it is a strange one to splash on this. the queen, aged 94, is to be vaccinated against covid—19. i think she is obviously in the top group. she isn'tjumping the queue. it is probably more of a story if she said she wasn't going to have it, to be honest! it would be nice to see the queen backing the campaign because we do need to
persuade people to have this injection and if she were to make a statement to that effect, or to reveal after she had had it that she had been vaccinated, that would be a positive thing to do. the idea is that the palace will later be known that the palace will later be known that her and the duke of edinburgh have received it when they do the injection. shyama, the mirror, they are talking about lots of celebrities who are saying that they are declaring they will have the coronavirus vaccine, again to show the public that they believe it is safe. yes, well give the jabber stab. i have a mum who will be 90 next year, i hope she is cooking the joints for today? lunch, next year, i hope she is cooking the joints fortoday? lunch, i hope next year, i hope she is cooking the joints for today? lunch, i hope she is driving it over in the car for lunch. i was looking at this and thinking which of the celebrities
words make her want to get the job, i think definitely michael parkinson. john humphrys will put a rope, he is so bad —— she is so glad he has left the today programme. angela rippon she is very fond of. bob geldof, lulu? it is quite an unusual mix of celebrities who are offering to have the jab. none of them are particularly common in terms of popularity, i think sexy. it would be much better if you had mary berry, prue leith, people of the moment you are fabulous in their 805. but, you know, let them all give it a go. i hope they all live for ever and they encourage all of those in their age group who still have their marbles to volunteer for the job. dave, the mail on sunday have a page three that says fed up,
written goose christmas crackers. it isa written goose christmas crackers. it is a picture of regent street in central london absolutely heaving with christmas shoppers, as if they have all had the vaccine already. yes, this is a gripping picture. i sought around the office yesterday when i was writing about brexit and it caught my eye. i had to stop and look at it. this is during our covid pandemic and oxford street looks absolutely jammed from one pandemic and oxford street looks absolutelyjammed from one paper to the other, the route has been closed out the traffic adages just like a normal christmas. people haven't had the chance to do much shopping this year so they are all dashing out. it is this clash between wanting to help business out, go and shop, get to the high street, help businesses and jobs, not the other hand try and protect yourself from the pandemic. both of these issues are at odds here. the thing that is also interesting in this story is that
the christmas songs are all blaring out. that is one thing i haven't missed during the early part of lockdown restrictions, is those tunes that come round once a year and are played in every shot you walk into. —— shop. and are played in every shot you walk into. -- shop. shyama, we have seen crowds of christmas shoppers, but then the observer talks about a poll revealing the scale of home alone christmas, and they talk about alone christmas, and they talk about a silent epidemic of loneliness this christmas. which apparently is going to be particularly acute among those aged 65 and over, with as many as 1.7 million people saying they expect to be alone on christmas day. what it does not tell us is how many people would normally be alone on chri5tma5 day. i imagine a lot of older people will belong to bubbles or groups that would include them. i
suppose what it underlines is that a year of pandemic has allowed and use layer of people who are on their own to fall through the gaps and not be spotted. christmas, of course, we'll just emphasise, i suppose, that lack of co nta ct just emphasise, i suppose, that lack of contact with the rest of the world. dave, let's go to football, kreutz back into the premier league ground yesterday and it didn't go that smoothly adds millwall boss my groin, because when the players took the knee, as they have been doing in solidarity the fight against racism, their own supporters started booing players from 13 and derby county. yes, this is a great shame, an absolute disgrace, as well. millwall fa ns absolute disgrace, as well. millwall fans have already got a bad reputation and this is just sorry it even further. we wait nine months to give football fans back in, and that is stealing the headlines on the
sports pages this morning. disgraceful behaviour. even if you think taking the knee is a political statement too far, perhaps it has been overdone, this is not the way to behave and it has brought shame on the club, who lost, incidentally, on the club, who lost, incidentally, on the club, who lost, incidentally, on the day. the players are not happy at all and are quite ashamed, rightly so, of their fans. shyama, a quick thought on maps? it was more about the way that the telegraph framed it, saying that the fans were voicing apparent disapproval at the politicisation of the black lives matter movement. i mean, the truth is that millwall fans all be to throw bananas on the pitch and behave in the most horrendous ways. we had kick racism out of football and things got a bit better, but the truth is this is nothing to do with black lives matter, this is pure
racism and affray that has been in any of —— been enabled again by football by their xenophobia that was part of the brexit argument, and anti—semitism in the labour party. there has been a free for all and all kinds of race hate. but i do also pick up on what david says, they think he is right, i think it is time that the football association actually find their own totem that says we are against racism. i think players cannot go on taking the knee at the beginning of football games because after a while it starts to lose its impact. what we need is a kind of almost football meme on the terraces and on the pitch, which is peculiar and specific to football and about how football is going to show the black lives matter. last thought, still in football, dave, is the observer, and they have a picture of fans at the
ground, but some research that shows it doesn't seem to make that much difference to the results of games whether fans are in the stadiums or not. no, there is still a home advantage. as a liverpool fan i wondered if we would still put four past barcelona when we needed to overturn a 3—0 deficit without the cop there. a question. it seems that overall the home advantage does not count, apart from the fact that the away teams are not being booked as frequently, which shows that the referees are swayed by the crowd booing when an away player puts in a tackle. if you ever do a stadium tour, you will notice that the away dressing rooms aren't as good as the home dressing rooms, wherever you go. in fact, home dressing rooms, wherever you go. infact, i remembera tale home dressing rooms, wherever you go. in fact, i remember a tale about bill shankly, he used to have the away dressing room floor polished in the hope that one of the players would take a bit of a tumble before the game! well, the fans are back in
at anfield tonight for liverpool, so let's hope you and me both, that there's been some home advantage. dave, shyama, thank you so much for being with us this sunday morning. let's not get the latest sports. holly is at the bbc sport centre. england's opening one—day international against south africa has been abandoned because two of the hotel staff has tested positive for covid—19. former england captain alastair cook says player safety must come first. i will be very, very surprised at the cricket continues now. i would imagine the players would want to come home. i know they are off pretty quickly, the 2nd of january,
back to sri lanka to play a test series. the last thing they would wa nt to series. the last thing they would want to do is 14 days of isolation. u nfortu nately, want to do is 14 days of isolation. unfortunately, that might happen. they will all want to come home for christmas. they are probablyjust staying in the rooms, unfortunately. tottenham and liverpool have the chance to go back to the top of the premier league later. they can both jump over chelsea, who moved up with a 3—1 victory over leeds. fans were back at stamford bridge for the first time in nine months and they watched as 0livier giroud scored his fifth goal of the week. remember, he put away all four in chelsea's champions league victory on wednesday. at full time, manager frank lampard showed his appreciation to the fans. absolutely loved it. it's amazing what 2,000 people can do. you might think it's not much in a stadium of this type, but it was a lot. credit to the fans, they came and they brought their voice, they brought their support for the team and against a good team like leeds and the stresses they put you under, you need yourfans behind
you and i'm delighted they got the result we all wanted tonight. it wasn't such a good day for the 2,000 west ham fans at the london stadium, who saw their side lose 3—1 to manchester united. three goals in 13 minutes for them, capped off by marcus rashford. united are now up to fourth. there were no fans at the etihad, but manchester city boss pep guardiola celebrated 700 games in charge with victory over fulham. raheem sterling setting them on their way to a 2—0 win. turf moor wasn't an altogether happy place for burnley, who were held to a 1—1 draw by everton. the premier league's top scorer, dominic calvert—lewin, with the equaliser. just five points separate the top 10 in the league. the top two in the scottish premiership play this afternoon. rangers going in with an 11—point lead over celtic. hibs are nowjust a point behind them after a 3—0 win at motherwell. stephen mcginn with their third.
you can find more on all yesteday‘s fixtures on the bbc sport website. millwall players have described their "hurt" and "anger" at the behaviour of some of their fans yesterday after a section booed when players took the knee to protest against discrimination. the fa and derby manager wayne rooney also condemned their actions. rooney said he was pleased with the way his players dealt with it. manchester united's women are still unbeaten in the wsl they are four points clear at the top of the table after goals from leah galton and ella toone gave them a 2—0 win over aston villa, who are second from bottom. you can catch up with all the action on the women's football show on bbc one at 11.50pm tonight. england take on france in the final of rugby union's autumn nations cup this afternoon, and there'll be a second string france side at twickenham.
england's only defeat in their last eight tests was at the hands of france in february. however, none of that starting 15 can feature in today's game because of an agreement with french clubs restricing the number of games played. all i know is that the french have got a history of doing well when they've got a young side. you've got to look at the 2009 tour, i can remember being in cape town watching the game and they played a young team, you know, a young bastareaud, a young dusautoir and and they beat new zealand in the first test and the experienced guys came in and they lost the second and third test. so they've got history of doing that so we are not underestimating this team at all. there is a cracking final to look forward to at the uk snooker championship. world number onejudd trump cruised past china's lu ning 6—2, his 14th straight win, and he'll play neil robertson, another of this season's form players. when they met in the english 0pen
final in october it went to a final frame, with trump nicking it. there's more on the bbc sport website, including build—up to the sakhir grand prix, where lewis hamilton's stand—in george russell will start on the front row of the grid. that's all from me for now. 0ur weather is going to stay on the cold sides not just for 0ur weather is going to stay on the cold sides notjust for today but into the new working week, as well. cold at the minute with some rain around across eastern areas. the cold there has been brought to us by this dip in thejet cold there has been brought to us by this dip in the jet stream, with the cool weather spreading across western europe and even into the north—west of africa. this morning we have a widespread frost. temperatures got down to —4 in parts
of west scotland, west wilton into east anglia, but the frost has been pretty widespread. we have seen some rain around, as well. this radar picture shows the majority of the rain has been affecting eastern areas of the uk, but we have a big variety of weather from place to place. we see that light and patchy rain across the dash across the midlands and into wales. a few showers as well for the west of wales, the isles of scilly and western cornwall. we do have some sunshine, the best of in west and central scotland and into northern ireland. even in the sunnier moments, it will stay cold. 0vernight tonight it will get even colder, widespread frost on the way. watch out for icy surfaces. for monday, the uk finds itself between these two areas of low pressure. there will be barely any winter rant on monday, meaning the weather will be very slow to change. there will be very slow to change. there will be some fairly dense and widespread
mist and fog patches to start the day. some of that could perhaps linger all day in places. where that happens temperatures will get much of freezing. some sunshine in north—western areas, but the weather will tend to cloud over in eastern areas in the afternoon. look at the temperatures, three up to six celsius, so another cold day. for monday night, this rain will move in and we will see some of that rain moved to snow for a time on the high ground of scotland and northern england. through the middle part of the way, this low pressure become centred right across the top of the uk. it means that the weather will stay on the chilly side, stand quite cloudy, with further outbreaks of rain. the rain will tend to turn lighter and patchy as the week goes by perhaps turning brighter, as well. more cold weather to come over the next few days. that's your latest forecast.
i think unless we can resolve this quite fundamental divergence is at the moment then we are going to have to ta ke the moment then we are going to have to take a position in the next few days. donald trump makes his first public speech since losing the us presidential election, urging crowds in georgia to vote republican in crucial senate run—off elections. hospitals across the uk are getting ready to accept delivery of the coronavirus vaccine — with the first jabs set to be given on tuesday. coronavirus stops play — as positive tests in england's hotel mean the one—day series in south africa will
