‘didn't make him an offer. the they didn't make him an offer. the hard work he has put in and what he has sacrificed to create such a brilliant training environment here with such amazing divers who have achieved more than anybody has ever achieved more than anybody has ever achieved in britain. to then have it thrown back in his face, he was told no, and it feels like a massive insult to what he is and the legacy he is leaving behind. it feels like british diving and the national performance director have really overlooked how much of a key role he is in british diving. i understand what he is going. i'm welling up now. it should never have got to this point. former super league and world cup champions bradford bulls have been liquidated after the club's administrator rejected a bill to save them. they entered administration for a third time in five years in november. they won four super league titles before being relegated to the championship in 2014. despite this, the bbc understands that a new incarnation
of the club will be in the championship this season but with a 12 points deduction. eddiejones says 12 points deduction. eddie jones says dylan 12 points deduction. eddiejones says dylan hartley will captain england during the six nations as long as he proves his fitness. dylan hartley is currently serving a six—week ban for striking but will be back in time to england's opening game against france. he is doing everything right to be captain at the moment. he came to be captain at the moment. he came to the camps, he has worked hard, a prerequisite to getting into the side was to be very fit. it means he has got to undergo an unbelievably stringent fitness programme over the next five to six weeks. he is doing that. he's putting himself in the best position to continue as captain. that is everything. coming up captain. that is everything. coming up in captain. that is everything. coming upina captain. that is everything. coming up in a moment, the papers. goodbye. welcome to our look ahead to what
the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. i'm joined by charlie wells. the ft looks at the abrupt resignation of britain's ambassador to the eu, sir ivan rogers, and says tensions with number ten led to his departure. the daily telegraph also leads with that story, reporting that theresa may plans to pick a brexiteer to replace him, somebody who backs the brexit calls wholeheartedly, it claims. more on that story on the front of the times. downing street has been caught on the hop by the resignation, it claims. the measure has claimed that by lunchtime tomorrow bosses at the top ftse 100 tomorrow bosses at the top ftse100 companies will have earned as much as most people do in a year. a
warning from the head of the nhs. hospitals are apparently colluding with ambulance chasing lawyers. and the story of the chelsea football fa ns the story of the chelsea football fans who have been charged with racial abuse is on the front of the guardian. a man has been prevented from buying his dream home because developers will not let him park his van outside, according to the son. financial times, tipper, london's frustrated envoy resigns weeks before deadline on brexit clause. it does seem like a strange time to resign, three months potentially before article 50 is triggered. what is increasingly apparent, or unavoidable, is that we are looking at the front pages of all of the papers today. brexit is going to be the big story. our eu ambassador, sir ivan rogers, has quit. as you
mention, it isjust sir ivan rogers, has quit. as you mention, it is just the four theresa may triggers article 50. i suppose you could argue that he felt he was due to stand up in the autumn anyway, that he felt that it would be better for somebody else to take over before that point and to see through the negotiations from the very beginning. however, this has caught a lot of people, notjust number ten, but across whitehall on the hop. i suppose the problem is speaking truth. his job was to say some rather unpalatable realities, to share some unpalatable realities with number ten. last month, after the brussels summit in december, he was the leading diplomat that suggested it might take britain ten yea rs suggested it might take britain ten years to negotiate a trade deal. and even then it might not be ratified by the parliament, which wasn't popular at the time. i suppose the
point is, he is saying that he is getting the vibe, he would not have used those exact words, but he was getting the vibe from other eu countries that it was going to take a while. he wasn't saying he thinks, was he? that is the role of late diplomat, to convey messages from foreign countries back into the home country. — — foreign countries back into the home country. —— of a diplomat. to explain as truly as possible what appears to be going on. we see this word of the ft, frustrated, frustrated by the fact that perhaps he wasn't being listened to. politicians in other countries communicate very differently. for instance, in germany, france, people are much more direct. politicians tend to do the same. 0k, are much more direct. politicians tend to do the same. ok, the daily telegraph, brexiteer as our man in
brussels. so is the implication that sir ivan rogers was too pro—european and asa sir ivan rogers was too pro—european and as a result he somehow wasn't being aggressive enough in convincing the french that they should give us what we all want? that is certainly a suggestion. in that negotiation, when he was attempting to get a deal ahead of the brexit referendum, that sir ivan rogers wasn't. .. was the brexit referendum, that sir ivan rogers wasn't... was possibly too ready to take no for an answer, and very much a status quo man. and that he was maybe too entrenched in what was going on. the flip side is you need your man in brussels to know what is going on. there is some serious, heavyweight diplomats who have in very recent times, have left, have stood back from advising the prime minister on the european union. we have kim derek in
washington... these are all people who, probably now if you had to make a list of runners and riders to take over, would be on that list. if they could be persuaded to come back. will anybody want that job? it'll be the toughest diplomatic position for some time for britain. this person will take the blame if things go wrong and won't get the glory if things go right. is that what is going on? i wouldn't want to be in that position. from a journalistic perspective. i took issue with this story. it seemed to be moving the story. it seemed to be moving the story a bit too quickly. for my own methods, there are so many anonymous soui’ces methods, there are so many anonymous sources in high—level paragraphs. what are you suggesting? i'm sure the wall streetjournal what are you suggesting? i'm sure the wall street journal wouldn't do this. chuckles i take issue with it. it makes me
think that such a strong headline needs some sources on the record. this would never happen in america. different papers. it needs to be pointed out that the daily telegraph isa pointed out that the daily telegraph is a brexit newspaper. there you go. we will stay with the daily telegraph. the ftse closes on fourth consecutive high. i know the dow jones is heading towards 20,000, which would be a record, as well. everything going swimmingly. people are calling it the santa rally. but you must remember that the stock market tends to be very short term. in the short—term people are optimistic, it seems like in the uk manufacturing is on the rise, we are heading towards a high in the stock market which we haven't seen since the late 90s. but we know what happened after that, there were crashes. the other thing the article
doesn't necessarily mention is the weak pound. for manufacturers, in the short term that is a good thing because it means that you can export your products. the ftse predominantly is exported. exactly. but when you have to start making things in britain and import goods, a weak pound makes that very expensive. in the longer term it might not be great. you need to be more positive about the british economy. you sound like the outgoing brussels man. hard truths. speaking truth to power. chuckles and all of that money sloshing around the markets means... fat cat wednesday. i haven't heard this term before. you know there is a day, i think it is sometime in november where women start actually taking home the money they earn because of the gender pay gap. really? the fact that we work for free because of the gender pay gap. this is an
equivalent for executives and workers. it has only taken them four days because executives are paid so astonished the well and workers are paid so little in comparison, the gap is so huge. this analysis has worked out that chief executives of ftse100 worked out that chief executives of ftse 100 firms are typically paid £4 million. they only need three and a half days to rake in the average salary of their staff of £30,000. it isa salary of their staff of £30,000. it is a massive gap. that is what is serious. if you are trying to create social equality, or reach that as an endgame, there has been talk about executive pay, things like that, shares, is that being watered down, it is all about how we will water it down. what is the government going to do about that? theresa may's first commons on the steps of downing street where that this would bea downing street where that this would be a government for everybody, not just the haves. —— comments.
be a government for everybody, not just the haves. -- comments. the messages concrete. people find it ha rd messages concrete. people find it hard to understand big numbers. this isa simple hard to understand big numbers. this is a simple way to communicate this to the public. learn in -- they earn inafew to the public. learn in -- they earn in a few days would you earn in a year. in a few days would you earn in a yea r. pretty in a few days would you earn in a year. pretty simple. in the ft now. it seems like magic before trump is in power. the question on a lot of economists' minds, is this sustainable? can a person go company by company and encourage them to make fairly, you know, fairly small changes to the way they operate. we are talking about 700 jobs, $700 million that ford is going to invest ina million that ford is going to invest in a domestic plan as opposed to
investing in a plant in texaco. just to be clear, trump said if this was going to happen it wouldn't be a good idea. —— in mexico. going to happen it wouldn't be a good idea. -- in mexico. he has been talking about this quite a bit on the campaign trail. and he had been talking about other car manufacturers, and that he would punish them. it has changed the rhetoric. the ford ceo has made the change. and he mentions about other policies. the protectionist approach. and how that will filter down when it comes to the relationship with countries like china. they have been vocal about doing business. interesting one to watch. and trade is not as simple as having one fact in one country and “ one having one fact in one country and —— one factory in one country and sold to another. the same product might be designed and begun in the us, cross the border to mexico,
shipped to canada, and sold in the us essentially. it is complicated. what is not complicated is the video that emerged of a few chelsea fans, abusing a black man on the metro in paris, it was his home city. this took place in 2015 before a football game between chelsea and paris saint germain. these four chelsea fans have finally been convicted. it is an awful attack. it is great that they have been convicted. problem is, it sends a really bad message once again about british football fa ns once again about british football fans abroad. we don't have the best reputation anyway. incidents like this do nothing for our standing in other european countries.|j this do nothing for our standing in other european countries. i think the guardian is the only paper that has it on its front page. does that
surprise you, charlie? people tend to turn a blind eye to difficult issues. we are talking about this, unfortunately. what we see here is a french state prosecutor talking about this as a "defining moment" because there is an increasing amount of anti—racist legislation in lots of countries. this is a clear—cut example of what racism is. president is important in law. —— precedence. the police are very conscious of it. nhs boss, kick out hospital blood suckers. he isn't talking about leeches, he is talking about lawyers, ambulance chasers. talking about leeches, he is talking about lawyers, ambulance chasersm is these no—win no fee companies. they are targeting inside hospitals. there are leaflets. some have rented
out space in hospitalfor ways there are leaflets. some have rented out space in hospital for ways to get the information to patients and to sue the nhs. apparently it is £440 million per year, which would be better used in the nhs. we won't get onto the cultural aspects in the us. 0k. diet drinks, no healthier than sugary versions. we know that, thatis than sugary versions. we know that, that is why we drink sugary versions. go full fat. economists have found that people who consume diet drinks might end up eating more calories in food because they are telling themselves, ok, i haven't had a full calorie soda, why not have a doughnut? go further full should in the first place. exactly, just have the mars bar. and you can get other types of chocolate bars,
by the way. thank you for having you both here to talk about the papers. you can read a detailed review of the papers on the website. you can see us the papers on the website. you can see us each night with every edition posted. thank you for watching. goodbye. it was a fairly bland day across the country. if you are lucky enough to have sunshine —— if you were lucky enough to have sunshine it was beautiful. this is cornwall, not a cloud in the sky, a beautiful january day. in the last few hours we've seen some january day. in the last few hours we've seen some rough seas across aberdeenshire, threatening skies and outbreaks of rain. severe gales for the northern isles for a time over the northern isles for a time over the next few hours. this week
weather front continues to sink south overnight bringing more in the way of cloud. to the south and north of that, with some breaks in the cloud, temperatures could be low enough for a touch of light frost. the emphasis will be where this fund is sitting first thing tomorrow morning. slicing through northern ireland, the north midlands and into the south—east corner. —— this front is sitting. not a very cold start, but behind it there is a clearance. lovely blue sky and sunshine across much of northern england and scotland. despite a disappointing start in northern ireland it is an improving picture as we go through the day. it be windy up to the north—east. still a risk of a scattering of showers here but there will be lovely sunshine across the bulk of scotland, stretching down the north of england. eventually into north wales. and the midlands. by into north wales. and the midlands. by the middle of the afternoon a good slice of sunshine for many. top temperatures of four to 9 degrees.
but with the clear skies it'll allow the temperatures to fall away sharply. a widespread hard frost is expected wednesday night into thursday morning. in towns and city centres temperatures could be just hovering around freezing. in rural spots, down to maybe even lower than minus six degrees. a bitterly cold start. we could have scenes like this, maybe even freezing fog in some places, you need to keep abreast of the forecast if you up early enough. thursday is looking promising days. dry, lots of sunshine. cold, bit more of a breeze and clouds gathering. a sign of what is to come on friday with windy and wet weather to come across the far north and west. take care. this is bbc news. the headlines at 11:00. the uk's outgoing ambassador to the eu, sir ivan rogers, has urged his uk colleagues in brussels to challenge
what he described as "muddled thinking" by those in power. his departure has received mixed reactions. he thought it might take up to ten yea rs. he thought it might take up to ten years. the only regret i have got if he didn't go the day after the referendum. it is a spectacular own goal, because the only way we're going to deliver a workable brexit, is with people like ivan rogers. a gun has been found in the car of the man shot dead by police, during a pre—planned operation on the m62, near huddersfield. the main suspect in the new year terror attack on a nightclub in istanbul — which left 39 people dead — is still on the run. and coming up on newsnight, ten questions for 2017.
