now it's time for news watch. has bbc news report that accurately on what the prime minister said about keir starmer�*s time has director of public prosecutions? and what was it a good idea for question time to invite vaccine sceptics onto the programme? the temperature in westminster has been high for a while now. and so it remains. one argument in particular has gained further traction over the past few days. it may a bad incident on monday involving their labor leaders are keir starmer. this is not normal rough—and—tumble. but the abuse and untrue accusations being hurled at

the leader of the opposition. one false claim that he protected the file jimmy false claim that he protected the filejimmy savile. keir starmer file jimmy savile. keir starmer bundle filejimmy savile. keir starmer bundle to a police car and two arrests were made. it happened outside parliament where seven days ago the prime minister made a false link between the two. but was that link made by the payment is that i speak the prime motivation for that harassment of the leader of the opposition. not according to brian who told us on tuesday this small group of protesters... then there is the issue of that claim made by the feminist minister later clarified but not retracted that keir starmer had spent his time as head of the competition service prosecuting journalists and failing to prosecute jimmy
8:47 pm
prosecuting journalists and failing to prosecutejimmy savile. that has been unambiguously described as false, notjust as we heard there in our current spread reports but across bbc news.— our current spread reports but across bbc news. tonight at 10pm boris johnson _ across bbc news. tonight at 10pm boris johnson has _ across bbc news. tonight at 10pm boris johnson has called _ across bbc news. tonight at 10pm boris johnson has called upon - across bbc news. tonight at 10pm| boris johnson has called upon once borisjohnson has called upon once again to withdraw for activations he made against keir starmer. castar may use to be the director of public prosecutions but there is no evidence by the prime minister's original allegation that secular had failed to prosecute savo. downing street has no intention of apologising for the prime minister's false claim that keir starmer failed to prosecute jimmy for sex offenders —— offences.
8:48 pm
others thought the status of boris johnson's claim was not as black—and—white as the bbc had been traded. arguing that as head of the competition service at the time that it failed to prosecute jimmy competition service at the time that it failed to prosecutejimmy saville castar may had some responsibility for that area so what is the prime minister claim actually falls? we have been hearing repeatedly from bbc we wa nted we wanted to discuss all of this

from someone with someone from bbc news but none was available and in february given the statement. bbc wants question time is always about hearing opposing points of view on an issue but they speak some of the debate centred on the programme itself and the decision of the to invite a number of unvaccinated people along to the studio. professor roberts was asked by one of them about the potential risks of the vaccine. mast by one of them about the potential risks of the vaccine.— risks of the vaccine. most people who have some _ risks of the vaccine. most people who have some adverse - risks of the vaccine. most people who have some adverse events l risks of the vaccine. most people l who have some adverse events are mild injection site reactions and may be a day of feeling slightly unwell. and the evidence and the facts are there. they are indisputable.— facts are there. they are indisputable. can i speak? i

8:52 pm
people in the position of people whose views are not necessarily the views chaired by the majority of people. let us know your thoughts on that or on any aspect of bbc news. details of how to contact us at the end of the programme. now for some of your other comments. last week we heard complaints that james should not have asked borisjohnson about parties in downing street during a press conference in kyiv held to discuss the ongoing crisis. another week, another press conference. in brussels this time held after more talks about ukraine and although she started by asking the prime minister about a possible invasion by russia, larkins burke went on like this. on top of pressure abroad, especially at home. the prime minister is one of those who could be interviewed and find of a breaking lockdown laws, what then? if you are found to have broken enough, would you resign? have broken enough, would you resin? ., have broken enough, would you

8:54 pm
midlands region was cancelled in the article was that could. why? it had to be pointed out that the bbc at the crypto currency in question was not such a success as it appeared. it collapsed in october but some investors claiming they lost lots of money. a twitter account believed to be hayes has dismissed claims of any wall doing —— wrongdoing but all the bbc had to say what the programme has been withdrawn from the schedule tjy has been withdrawn from the schedule by look into editorial issues. adding that they could not disclose the reason why documentary had been pulled. either into the way words are spelled or the terms used without a prime example occurred last friday in i can about the start of the winter olympics. look out for what's written on the strap at the bottom of the screen. people are pretty excited here at the pub in beijing and i'm sure you can tell there are quite a few families

8:56 pm
hello, welcome. apologies for a few technical issues at the start of that. his colleague the previous victim of runaway cameras posted this week. thank you for your comments. if you want to share opinions about what you see or hear on bbc news, on tv, radio or social media, e—mail us or you can find us on twitter. you can call us as well. that's all from us and we would be back to hear your thoughts about bbc news coverage again next week. goodbye. hello there. friday brought us a dry, sunny, cold day thanks to high pressure. very short—lived, mind you.
8:57 pm
it is set to turn more unsettled tonight, and for the weekend, low pressure will bring wet and windy weather to our shores, with it turning a little bit milder as well. so that's today's high pressure and cold air moving out of the way, being replaced by low pressure, slightly milder air, lots of isobars and weather fronts, so it'll be going downhill across northern and western areas through the course of the night. wet and windy weather here. bit of snow over the high ground of scotland initially as it bumps into the cold air, but then milder air moves in. much of central, southern, eastern parts of england will stay dry under clear spells. in the far southeast, it could be quite chilly again. not as cold as the previous night, but much milder further north and west. so a different—feeling day on saturday, more cloud around, more wind — in fact, strong winds, gusty at times — and outbreaks of rain, some heavy for northern and western england, in towards wales. sunshine and showers following for scotland and northern ireland.
8:58 pm
it will be windy with gales here. but even blustery across the southeast despite it staying dry, with some sunshine here throughout daylight hours. temperatures creeping up a little bit on saturday, maybe highs of 9 or 10 degrees in the southwest. it might not feel like that because of the strength of the wind and the rain. the wet and windy weather reaches the southeast during saturday night. into sunday, we look to the southwest, to a new area of low pressure moving in. and that will start to feed in some pretty heavy and persistent rain in southwest england, wales, northern and western england as well. could see some really high rainfall totals by the end of the day across south wales. wetter as well for the southeast. the rain reaches most areas, apart from the far north of scotland. it will be very windy with gales across the southwest, through the channel. and it'll be very wet and windy through sunday evening, as that low slips away into the north sea. eventually, it will clear away. bit of a hang—back of cloud and wind across northern and eastern parts of the country. skies will be brightening up across the south and the west, but here, there will be some blustery showers, these of a wintry flavour, certainly, across scotland, as the air will be a bit coolerfor all on monday — highs of 4 to 8 or 9 degrees in the south.
8:59 pm
very little change, then, as we head through the rest of the week. in fact, if anything, it turns more unsettled. a spell of gales, even severe gales at times. some spells of wet weather, too, and it will be very mild, especially across the south.
