tv The Papers BBC News January 15, 2017 9:30am-10:01am GMT
hello. this is bbc news. the headlines: theresa may is expected to reveal the most detailed insight yet into her approach to brexit negotiations in a speech on tuesday. the organisation, which represents more than 50 british airports, is warning that passengers arriving in the uk after brexit will face longer delays, without an increase in border force numbers. growing numbers of democrats say they will boycott donald trump's presidential inauguration after his twitter attack on a veteran civil rights activist. and a major international conference to try to kick—start peace talks between israel and the palestinians is being held in the french capital, paris. coming up in a few minutes, our sunday morning edition of the papers. this morning's reviewers arejosie delap and sean dilly. it has been a very usual weekend sport. you are right. we will start with cricket because england started
their first match of the one—day series against india and hour and a half ago this morning. england have made a quick start after india won the toss and chose to bowl in pune. alex hales was run out for nine. jason roy and joe root are at the crease. boxing now, and james degale was taken to hospital as a precaution after he retained his ibf world super middleweight title overnight in new york. the fight between degale and badou jack ended in a controversial draw. degale began the fight strongly, knocking jack down in the first round. but jack is known for strong finishes and that's exactly what happened this morning. he knocked degale down in the final round. the judges took a long time to come to a decision, eventually declaring it a majority draw. both men go home with their respective world title belts. james degale has tweeted since being in hospital and he has said he has a burst eardrum and a front tooth has
been knocked out. he has been talking about what might happen next and his promoter has explained that to us. the wbc will send out a letter on monday to badu jack to say, you have to start negotiations. we have got him cornered. i think he will 0k we have got him cornered. i think he willok at, i we have got him cornered. i think he will 0k at, i do. i think it will be callu m will 0k at, i do. i think it will be callum smith against anthony or james degale for the ibf. that is the fight we wanted. that is the fight james wants and callum and probably britain wants as well. it will be interesting to see what happens. andy carroll added to the collection as west ham beat crystal palace 3—0. joey barton had been back in the premier league for five minutes before he scored for burnley, while both tottenham and arsenal put four goals past their opponents. but it is chelsea who are top of the table, with a seven—point lead, despite the absence of their top scorer, diego costa. joe lynskey reports. no costa, no problem.
without their star player, chelsea showed their team's star quality. at the home of the champions, this was a test of their own title credentials and their inspiration came from an unlikely source. the first of two goals for their full—back, marcus alonzo, set them on their way. should fortune indeed tempt costa away, plenty of attacking riches still remain. pedro has surely sealed it for chelsea! on a night where some thought their season would unravel, chelsea proved their resolve. their lead at the top is now seven points over tottenham. their main man is in a very different place. harry kane ended the week he became a parent with a hat—trick against west brom. a match ball that will make a nice souvenir for someone. the little girl has been great. got a good missus, getting up at night, letting me sleep. busy week, but one i have enjoyed and obviously i enjoyed today as well. there were four goals too for arsenal.
their comfortable route to victory makes things very uncomfortable at swansea. the new boss, paul clement, needs some answers, fast. perhaps he should look to marco silva for inspiration. hull city's latest appointment marked his first league match in charge with victory against bournemouth. the tigers revitalised and had their first win since november. burnley has been surprising people, not least by bringing joey barton back. five minutes into his return, he's back to making headlines on the pitch. this is fast becoming a season known for its breathtaking goals, after mkhitaryan‘s scorpion kick at west ham added a third take on stu ntman football. that is tremendous! on a weekend of speculation, there is still plenty of star quality left in this division.
elsewhere, watford and middlesbrough drew 0—0, but the match started with a minute's applause for watford's former manager, graham taylor, who died this week, aged 72. taylor, who also managed england, took watford from the fourth division to a second—place finish in the top flight in just five seasons. he also guided the club to the only fa cup final of their history. tributes were paid to graham taylor at several grounds across the country. today's games in the premier league sees the manchester clubs take on the two teams from merseyside. everton host manchester city in the early kick off, while fourth—placed liverpool face manchester united at old trafford. a win would take liverpool to second place in the table, but with manchester united unbeaten in 15 games, jose mourinho is in confident mood. we don't have just the good performances, we have also the happiness of the good results. we play at home, not away,
so little details that change a little bit, but in general, it'sjust one more big match and let's enjoy the match. of course, both teams are, actually, especially now, in the long—term, in a good run, in good shape. maybe united has less problems with injuries or whatever, but that doesn't mean anything. we can lose against each team, but we can win against each team and that's the important thing. the masters snooker gets under way today at alexandra palace in london. the favourite to win is six—time champion ronnie o'sullivan. last year, he thrashed barry hawkins in the final i—i. "10-1. o'sullivanhas eye on a record seventh title.
it would be great to get another masters, but notjust because it's the seventh, but because it's the masters. i'm not thinking i'd love to break the record, i just want to win the masters. i want to win another worlds, a welsh, another china open. ijust want i just want to win more tournaments. o'sullivan with cold and flu trying to win the masters. and you can watch the masters live on the bbc. the action gets under way this afternoon, with coverage on bbc two. there are also regular updates live on radio 5 live. hello and welcome to our review of the papers. with me arejosie delap, home affairs correspondent for the economist, and journalist sean dilley. let's have a look at today's front pages. the observer says cancer patients are feeling the brunt of the nhs crisis, with operations being cancelled on a regular basis. the mail on sunday suggests cutting the foreign aid budget to fund the health service.
it claims more than three quarters of voters support the idea. meanwhile, on the same story, the sunday mirror has a picture of a two—year—old girl it says had to sit on the floor for eight hours before she was seen. theresa may's brexit strategy is the sunday telegraph's focus. it says the pm is prepared to lead britain out of the single market. the "brexit battle plan" is how the sunday express put it, saying mrs may is going to get tough with brussels. and the sunday times carries an image of prince william who, it says, will be leaving his position as an air—ambulance helicopter pilot to pursue full—time royal duties. so, let's begin. the sunday telegraph, story reflecting some of the other papers, gamble ona reflecting some of the other papers, gamble on a clean the brexit, britain could leave customs union to secure better trade talks. they have both parts per, clean brexit seems to be watches aiming for. yes, it
seems to be a bit of a rebranding, from hard brexit to clean. the speech will be on tuesday, ambassadors from the 27 eu states have been invited to attend. she will lay out in more detail than she currently has her plans for britain's exit from the eu which will include being prepared to leave the customs union as well as the single market. in order to regain full control of borders. to no longer be bound by a european court ofjustice rulings. longer be bound by a european court of justice rulings. she longer be bound by a european court ofjustice rulings. she is also keen to end the divisive rhetoric of levers and remainders and the insults flung around... a lot of people are keen on that. it is hard to see that happening. this is her trying to answer some of her critics who say she is simply not telling us what she plans to do. rightly picking up on the clean brexit, good
bit of rebranding, one wonders what a dirty brexit would be. without wishing to be too controversial, i am sick of all of the hard brexit, soft brexit, clean brexit, all of this nonsense, insulting rhetoric. i know you are watching, downing street. we are not hiring a poet, we would have shelley to do that. i sympathise to a degree with the prime minister because she is being asked and forced into revealing her negotiating position before and it isa negotiating position before and it is a really bad idea patented. legally, can she remove the customs union, article 127, our membership of the single market? there is a campaign and a judicial review going to court led by a pr chap and i believe another. one is a remain and one is a lever. they are trying to argue that it needs another bit of
parliamentary scrutiny. have we got the patience? the sunday times, same story. i want to move onto donald trump who is obviously going to be not just the trump who is obviously going to be notjust the biggest newsmaker this week but probably this year and the sunday times says he wants a summit in rhetoric. what do you make of this? traditionally, in recent yea rs, this? traditionally, in recent years, the president's first international visit has been to canada, fairly innocuous. the best possible way! donald trump is discussing going to russia, or took recce a third—party location, to meet with putin —— to iceland. this seems to have got footage officials quite worried. what exactly it will mean in terms of sanctions on russia. —— british officials. and
tromp—— and donald trump's intentions. the more recent ones about hacking and crimea being occupied. donald trump has promised to keep an open mind on this. he has been quite flattering about putin in recent months so i think this is another sign of his willingness to develop that relationship, something he says is going to be good for america, good for them to have warmer relations. and it could be. someone who has been accused of looking like vladimir putin on occasion, particularly from behind, ultimately, whether russia and america like each other, and they probably don't, historically, let us be honest, it is clearly of benefit to have two world powers, each of whom could be perceived by the other side as being a little bit unstable with nuclear weapons, too... i am
doing a donald trump! it is going to be fantastic! the british are worried, that is part of the story. so they say. within the foreign service of the us, the capital of iceland is remembered from when ronald reagan tried to give away all nuclear weapons. one might wish for a nuclear free world, nuclear weapons. one might wish for a nuclearfree world, but nuclear weapons. one might wish for a nuclear free world, but some of the more hard cases in the ronald reagan administration went, my goodness, the president is suggesting the gorbachev, we get rid of all of the nukes. you have to assume one of the reasons that people in the intelligence committee on foreign service in america are so worried about this is because we simply have no idea of what to expect from donald trump and his presidency. the knows what he could say at any moment... on twitter, probably! who knows. i think that is one of the most unsettling things
for spooks and diplomats who are traditionally quite conservative or like to know very much... they like predictability. he is anything but predictable stock we have seen this week the president elect picking a fight, one might say, or engaging a fight, one might say, or engaging a fight with the cia, american intelligence, which is a brave thing to do. secondly, picking a fight with the civil rights community and with the civil rights community and with, was in john with the civil rights community and with, was injohn lewis who is a hero among the civil rights committee in the united states and beyond that because of the way he conducted himself in the early 60s. when we talk about in terms of what he may say, he is limited by the constitution. an awful lot of people do not like donald trump the person but they are dealing with donald trump the office also reverend jesse jackson is also involved in the civil liberties much happening at
the moment. it is fairly inevitable that they are going to be protests against the person. people have to bearin against the person. people have to bear in mind, again, whether people like the result, effectively, they are not protesting against democracy... well, that is the argument we are having. it is interesting, we will have the president of the united states calling for unity in the united states, one can predict, theresa may is doing that here, you could say it is doing that here, you could say it is wonderful, but it also create social problems. absolutely, the deep breaths, no matter how much politicians call for unity, it is ha rd to politicians call for unity, it is hard to imagine them going away. —— deep rifts. the differences are fundamental, something like brexit, as we have seen, it reveals very great divisions. we are a polarised country. you could almost look at
the brexit referendum back injune and the us election and the percentages, they are not far off. indeed not. this is a story which the health service... the observer has got it as have other papers in different ways. the mirror has the human story. the observer has got, health service in fighters, cancer operations cancelled. number 10 must face the truth according to a hospital chief. this is something people care deeply about. absolutely. the point about this story, we have seen it quite a lot, stories about the crisis the nhs is facing, cancer operations have traditionally been protected, if not officially but they have been seen as things you cannot cancel. in december, some hospitals began having to postpone them, if not cancel them. the number of the hospitals doing that has increased in january. so
hospitals doing that has increased injanuary. so we have got people criticising the government for failing to acknowledge the scale of the crisis, which is nothing new. failing to acknowledge the scale of the crisis, which is nothing newm is against the backdrop, we were talking a few moments ago before coming on air, gps being told they have to stay from atm until 8pm, it is no win for anybody because if you are not a doctor barbara, even if you are, i guess, but maybe you have got more time, it is virtually impossible to get any form of gp appointment unless you queue up —— doctor bother. theresa may is saying that by having the surgery is open it will ease the crisis. but gps, professional bodies, friends of mine, they feel they are slightly picked upon. whether that is fair is wide of the debate. you cannot put it all on them. you covered this endlessly, the economist. it is not new to this government, however we
can attract jeremy new to this government, however we can attractjeremy hunt, not the most loved person in the country, very few people who do thatjob are loved by doctors and therefore by those of us who like our doctors. what is true about the current situation is britain was not spending on health services is falling behind other rich countries. we are spending less in comparison to other places. the difficulty with health care spending compared to something like criminaljustice spending, which theresa may was in charge before, is that you can decide, i am simply not going to send people to prison, i am going to... i'm going to make these crimes, they are no logo going to be crimes. you cannot do that with health care services. —— no longer. we have an increasingly sick population. this is only going to be a bigger problem. also, as you know, governments talk about more money for the health service, but there
are more of us, the biggest success of british art in the past 50 years, we are living longer, great success story, except if you happen to need a doctor in your lady bloomer and you need more than ten minutes. the figures as well —— in your 805. there is more money being siphoned off for social care and the like. maybe five years ago, are member interviewing the health secretary at the time, 103 billion, so the amount is increasing. to be frank, it is really difficult. i have sympathies with both sides. the nhs is being cut and they are feeling the squeeze. but if you say, here is £300 billion, which would be a little bit under half of what the entire treasury is worth, 768 billion, we would still have people surely wanting more budget and it is natural because we want to help people. it is true, going back to your point, if you look atjeremy,
per capita, they have almost three times the number of hospital beds available because they have a different system and they spend more money on it —— if you look at germany. the nhs used to be the envy of the world. it has not been replicated though. exactly. when we talk about it, it is difficult. we talk about it, it is difficult. we talk about it, it is difficult. we talk about the nhs and the nhs budget as though it is one monolithic organisation and it is many different organisations and many different organisations and many different organisations and many different things have money spent on them. social care, that has been cut. the knock—on effects of that in terms of elderly people getting sick at home and needing to come into hospital, putting pressure on hospitals, it is something that isa on hospitals, it is something that is a very complex ecosystem. moving the telegraph, facebook and fake news. i love this story! let me that it! parliament to grill facebook chiefs over fake news. it! parliament to grill facebook chiefs overfake news. this is the stories which you can see on social
media and elsewhere. stories which you can see on social media and elsewherelj stories which you can see on social media and elsewhere. i am going to be very cynical now and point out there is a business model that works for online papers were the headline is so outrageously devoid from the reality, the reality is the last paragraph, accusing the prime minister still linked the lemur christine yate cupcake and a great big hole thing and then they say, the daily mail, any other publication, the prime mr was in jersey that day and could not have been there —— the prime minister stealing a cupcake. there is a claim and a counterclaim and here is our research. the answer to so—called fa ke research. the answer to so—called fake news is to do news accurately, to have journalists, not
churnalists. and have an editor. i am sorry, it was in the telegraph a while ago, a story which said, could previous lovers change how your future children will look? in paragraph six, the research was based on fruit flies. intriguing. i thought, what is fake news? that is one of the crucial questions. we know that there have been stories that have been utterly false that people take very seriously and it affects how they might vote and how they view the world and it is something to take very seriously. we have to be very careful also about what we label fake news and who label is something fake. donald trump says cnn is fake news because he does not like it. it creates biblical aspect to a genuinely difficult story. do you mean propaganda? —— it creates a
difficult aspect. a story that the bbc is to launch a fake news unit. actually, i think it... it is supposed to be anti—fake news. actually, i think it... it is supposed to be anti—fake newsm actually, i think it... it is supposed to be anti-fake news. it is a fantastic idea. the problem is, it is using rhetoric. to give you an example, with huge respect to anybody in public service, the former prime mr david cameron said that journalists should refer to the organisation that itself the islamic state as so—called islamic state, i can tell you that i refused to use the term the prime minster said we should use because there should be an unhealthy tension. i said the organisation called itself the islamic state and thereafter you call it is or islamic state. there isa call it is or islamic state. there is a danger, notjust call it is or islamic state. there is a danger, not just when politicians tell the media what language they should use, we need to have independence. anti—fake news
unit isa have independence. anti—fake news unit is a brilliant idea. front page of the telegraph, 50 conservative mps have demanded the government brings in tougher strike clause —— laws. this is an old chestnut, very interesting because the southern rail strike has caused such misery. absolutely. 50 mps saying that strikes on critical public infrastructure such as train and bus services should only be allowed if they can be deemed reasonable and proportionate by a judge and if they are allowed to go ahead, unions have to provide a skeleton service. what is striking about this, pardon the pun... well done! they have caused enormous misery, the strikes, but the numbers of workers who are members of the unions and the number of days lost to strikes has declined dramatically. we are left with a few strikes that cause a lot of misery
because they are in very high profile industries, where it is very difficult to get workers to stand in when you go on strike. we have to remember, when you have mps calling for widespread laws about strikes, this is a smaller and smaller issue. what do you make of it?|j this is a smaller and smaller issue. what do you make of it? i am loathe to taking any more rights away or creating more laws because successive governments like doing that. i have a little bit of sympathy, i do not tend to use that train network, but i have a little bit of sympathy. for example policing, i do not know if you would call it an industry, but they are not allowed to strike because we need a police service. it is a privately run company, that is the other argument. you cannot go on another railway to come up from brighton. the devil is in the detail and it is about negotiation. we have to leave it there. that is it. thank you to mevlut mert aydintas and
ariel zurawski. —— thank you to sean and josie. we have been using alliteration to describe the weather, doll, damp, dreary. the good news is, it is milderfrom the dreary. the good news is, it is milder from the west. it is a pretty grey affair today. the rain is fairly light and patchy. a lot of cloud across the uk. a weather front moving through as we speak. my mother waiting in the wings. it is going to stay pretty cloudy, dull and damp —— weather waiting in the wings. not amounting to very much at all. for the rest of the day, we keep the cloudy skies. and the rain will stay fairly light and patchy. the exception to the rule is going to be east anglia. here, we keep the cold air,
so only 2 degrees in norwich. dull and damp, it's not very pleasant. by contrast, further west, in the middle of the afternoon, we will see highs of 9 to 10 degrees. it will still be quite a drizzly afternoon, with coastal and hill fog, but nevertheless, it's not going to be cold. some showery outbreaks of rain and it stays quite drizzly up into the far north and west of northern ireland and scotland. but a quieter day in scotland. maybe the east will stay on the chilly side. as we run through the night, there is little change in the story. we keep the cloud, we keep some outbreaks of light, patchy rain, moving its way through the spine of the country. mild out towards the west, a little colder across east anglia. here, temperatures struggling at around 1 degrees. there may be some patchy frost and fog here. weather fronts continue to drift in from the atlantic and they will continue to bring outbreaks of light rain. sandwiched in between the two, maybe a little bit of brightness, but i'm not going to try and pinpoint exactly where that cloud is likely to break. 8 to 10 degrees. still cooler in the east, with around 4 or 5. and the reason being,
we've got this high pressure blocking and sitting in europe. it's been there for a few weeks now and that's where the bitterly cold air is. the weather fronts are coming in from the atlantic and toppling across the top, so we really are going to see a north—west, south—east divide, that cold air never really easing away from the south—east. here, it is likely to stay chilly, with some early—morning frost and fog. further north and west, more cloud, but it will continue to feel noticeably milder. take care. this is bbc news. the headlines at 10: the prime minister calls for an end to division over brexit and prepares to outline her aims in the negotiations. the labour leader, jeremy corbyn, says the economy could suffer. she appears to be heading us in the direction of a bargain basement economy on the shores of europe where we have low levels of
corporate taxation. we will lose access to half of our export markets. it seems to me an extremely risky strategy. warnings of longer queues at passport control after brexit unless there's an increase in border force staff. a growing number of democrats are planning not to attend donald trump's inauguration following his comments about a veteran civil rights campaigner. also in the next hour, the planned billion pound restoration of the palace of westminster. mps launch an inquiry into concerns it may be costing too much. chelsea beat champions leicester city to go seven points
