hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are kezia dugdale who is the director ofjohn smith centre, glasgow university & former scottish labour leader and lucy fisher who is the deputy political editor at the telegraph. the telegraph leads on calls from some of the prime minister's own mps for him to resign in the wake of the downing street lockdown drinks party — it was the paymaster general michael ellis, pictured on the front page, who was put forward by the government to mop up labour's urgent question over the affair. mounting pressure on borisjohnson from tory mps to come clean over whether he was at that event in may 2020 is the headline for the guardian. a similar warning on the front of the times "say sorry, or doom us all", ministers tell borisjohnson. the i has been speaking to some mps who believe

there will be further revelations about downing street lockdown law—breaking. the ft looks ahead to tomorrow's showdown at prime minister's questions — quoting a tory mp saying the mood in number 10 is �*sulphurous�*. the metro focuses on the public backlash against borisjohnson as news of the party emerged — the paper quoting covid bereaved families saying he is showing contempt for their loved ones the mail asks if the game is up for the prime minister. yes, the the mirror replies: "the party's over, boris", the headline reads. so, let's begin. question and answer. let's start with the daily mail. is the party overfor with the daily mail. is the party over for the with the daily mail. is the party overfor the prime with the daily mail. is the party over for the prime minister could inspect the papers sayjohnson and grieved by the greatest crisis of his premiership. back in 2021, he just one the by election and every

locally expressing anger that while they were undergoing the hardship of obeying the covid—19 rules, missing out on things like funerals, weddings, celebrations, being with family members who are ill or in terminal care, that the prime minister or staff in downing street appear to have broken the rules on the basis of the e—mail that is come to light in the latest party allegations. in may 2020. there's a saying when asked when a rich person was asked how he lost all of his money, he said slowly than all at once. in money, he said slowly than all at once. h, . , money, he said slowly than all at once. ., ., ., once. in politics, how do you lose your suworters. _ once. in politics, how do you lose your supporters, slowly _ once. in politics, how do you lose your supporters, slowly and - once. in politics, how do you lose your supporters, slowly and then | once. in politics, how do you lose i your supporters, slowly and then all at once. is that approaching for borisjohnson? i at once. is that approaching for boris johnson?_ at once. is that approaching for boris johnson? i can't think of the worst set of— boris johnson? i can't think of the worst set of newspaper _ boris johnson? i can't think of the worst set of newspaper headlines| worst set of newspaper headlines than the — worst set of newspaper headlines than the one of the prime minister is ever_ than the one of the prime minister is ever looking at her waking up to tomorrow— is ever looking at her waking up to tomorrow morning. and it's getting very serious — tomorrow morning. and it's getting very serious indeed for him. a lot of people — very serious indeed for him. a lot of people had hoped that alignment

11:37 pm
your colleagues behind you in these moments of danger. i think that does speak to what the article on the front of the telegraph mentions, which is firstly, the pole showing that 66% of the public think that the prime minister should resign and just a fascinating slew of quotes from tory mps to questioning the prime minister of�*s behaviour as it seems to attend the party as eyewitnesses say that it took place. they have not chosen to do so so far and i think nigel mills, the tory mp made a very good point that if people who were presiding over covid—19 rules were themselves not able to abide by them, he makes a point that they should consider their positions. douglas ross put it in stronger language. the leader of
11:38 pm
the scottish conservatives. think it's utterly despicable at this party took place and that if the pm has misled are limited, he should resign about it. other tory mps describe downing street's attitude of do as i say, not as i do and i think it's palpable that's in of anger coming from conservative mps on record today. anger coming from conservative mps on record today-— on record today. mentioning as a politician. _ on record today. mentioning as a politician, what _ on record today. mentioning as a politician, what it _ on record today. mentioning as a politician, what it is _ on record today. mentioning as a politician, what it is like - on record today. mentioning as a politician, what it is like deaf - politician, what it is like deaf supporters and michael ellis, when he sat down there, had no one to pat him on the back or cheer for he sat down there, had no one to pat him on the back or cheerfor him. nevertheless, he was set out in defence of the prime minister. what do you read into those empty green from benches? itruiiiiii do you read into those empty green from benches?— do you read into those empty green from benches? will be interesting to see if the sensor _ from benches? will be interesting to see if the sensor replicated - see if the sensor replicated tomorrow when be have prime minister's _ tomorrow when be have prime minister's questions and before christmas, there was glaring calf and the — christmas, there was glaring calf and the benches in the prime mihister_ and the benches in the prime minister had to stand up and defend what now— minister had to stand up and defend what now looks like an innocuous preached — what now looks like an innocuous preached in rules and hunter pugh

11:41 pm
follow—up questions that will be sparked by an apology in which itself, the prime minister were to apologise and suggest an acknowledgement of some sort of wrong doing, in particular, i think people have latched on to remarks of the prime minister made in the comments in december when another prime minister's questions stuck in my christmas parties having taken place allegedly against the rules and insisted that no rules had been broken by parties and downing street. people want to derogate and for those remarks again to specify if he is excepting that rules are broken, then why did he say that previously, was the only referring to a narrow set of ramifications for previous parties. i think it is difficult for the prime minister to get out of this with a simple apology or even a claim that he had no knowledge of it. when mps spoke to made the point that if martin
11:42 pm
reynolds, the man who sent the e—mail 200 staff inviting them to take advantage of the lovely weather by gathering for some drinks and the downing street garden, but if martin reynolds organise that event without his permission, that will say, that speaks to the total anarchy and downing street, that cannot be the case that officials wanted to take such actions without official permission. and for reasons or justifications or lines that we are the prime minister come up with tomorrow, that will spark potentially new lines of inquiry in the questions. let's look at the time. looking at some political cultures, the united states, this is an apology and perhaps a tour sit down with 0prah apology and perhaps a tour sit down with oprah winfrey, do we have that

lewis hamilton will not decide whether to return to formula 1 this season until he sees the results of an inquiry into the abu dhabi grand prix. mercedes team boss toto wolff has said hamilton has become ”disillusioned" with f1, as a result of last year's title—deciding race. hamilton lost the championship to red bull's max verstappen after fia race director michael masi did not apply the rules correctly in a late safety—car period. at the masters snooker, ronnie 0'sullivan lived up to his nickname of the rocket by beating jack lisowski six frames to one. the number four seed was in good form, finishing with a break of 125 to comfortably make it through to the quarter finals where he'll face neil robertson on thursday. ifelt like i had to deliver and if i did not, i would've felt bad. i feel like the fence and supported me i feel like the fans

have supported me and you like you need to give them something back if i did not deliver, i would've felt very disappointed in myself. so, that is a huge pressure and i'm just pleased that i'm able to deliver under that sort of pressure, you know. new zealand batsman ross taylor had the perfect ending to his test career as he took the winning wicket in the second test against bangladesh in christchurch. taylor is known for his batting rather than his bowling and he'd only taken two wickets in 112 test matches before this. it meant new zealand drew the two match series 1—1 and taylor got a hero's exit. and finally, some big transfer news injapan, kazu—yoshi miura has signed for fourth tier side suzuka point getters at the age of 5a. �*king kazu' — as he's known — willjoin the club managed by his brother on a loan deal from yokohama fc. incredibly this will be his 37th season as a professional footballer. he became the oldest player to feature in the j—league last year and also holds the record for the oldest player to score a goal. he turns 55 next month. kazuyoshi miura will continue his professional

and that's all the sport for now. hello, there. on tuesday, sunshine returned to the northern half of the uk. and, through the rest of this week, we'll continue to see differences north—south — but we've got a milder, stronger breeze picking up across scotland and northern ireland. england and wales, the winds are going to be much lighter, so we're more likely to have some frost here and increasing amounts of mist and fog, too. now it was pretty damp and grey for many southern parts of the uk on tuesday, but all that low cloud and damp weather is heading out into the english channel, so clearer skies are following on behind. and, whilst it's chilly across parts of scotland and northern ireland, a frost is more likely in england and wales. notjust that, but we're seeing some mist and fog developing — particularly in this area where we have the yellow warning from the met office. and, within that area, there are some very busy roads — so with some dense patches of fog, driving conditions could be tricky in the morning.

that's when we'll still have some fog around, but it should gradually lift through the day, and for many parts, we should see some sunshine coming through. some sunshine across northern ireland, southern and eastern scotland — much more cloud across the northwest of scotland, although it should be largely dry. quite windy, mind you, and temperatures probably reaching double figures in the north of scotland, nearer 7—8 celsius, i think, for england and wales, even with some sunshine. and we've got milder conditions across northern areas because we've got these strong winds coming all the way across the atlantic, around the top of this area of high pressure. and underneath that area of high pressure, this is where we're seeing the frost and the fog. so we start with another frost again on thursday morning, we may well find the fog a little more widespread, notjust across some southern parts of england and the midlands, maybe into parts of wales and across northern england for a while. some of that could linger into the afternoon, but for many places, again, we should see some sunshine coming out. and it's a similar story again across scotland and northern ireland — cloudier weather in

the north west of scotland, a little bit damp, as well. still those temperature contrast really north—south across the uk. where that fog is slow to lift, it will be quite a cold day. all that cold air is stuck underneath this area of high pressure. stagnant air, really, so fog is tending to become more widespread. and it may well drift its way up into parts of northern ireland and southern scotland. most of the fog, though, on friday will be across england and wales, and it could linger into the afternoon. some sunshine away from that fog and low cloud. and again, it'll always be milder across more northern parts of scotland.
