10:40 pm
went buy kit for the australian open. dropped by his sponsor last year, he has come back from the brink of quitting tennis to be two of the world's top ten players in the last two weeks. today's big scalp was marin cilic, who had looked too much for evans in the first set, as the dazzling sun sank low. but as the shadows lengthened, evans came to live, breaking the cilic serve to ta ke live, breaking the cilic serve to take the second set. and belief blossoming in the darkness, he dominated the third too. the fourth turned into a battle, evans saved eight break points. and cilic was getting frustrated. he had to serve to stay in the match, but evans took his chance. and what to do after beating the world number seven — get straight on the phone, there is big news to share. surely the biggest win of his career. i had to fight quite hard to get through,
10:41 pm
definitely the situation and the ranking, definitely the best. with evans through, andy murray was just getting started. he beat russian teenager andrey rublev in straight sets, but it was not without drama. for a while, it looked like the world number one's chances were gone. while murray has an appointment with an ice pack, dan evansis appointment with an ice pack, dan evans is unlikely to be feeling any aches and pains — not a bad day's work for a player that the papers once described as the most wasted talent in british tennis. katherine downes, bbc news. the british athletes james ellington and nigel levine won't compete this year after both were seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in tenerife where they have been winter training. ellington posted this picture on social media, saying, "i truly am blessed as i do not know how me or my training partner nigel are still alive." the pair, european relay sprint champions, say they were struck head on by a car travelling on the wrong side of the road. ellington has a suspected broken leg in two places and both men have pelvic injuries.
10:42 pm
british athletics medical staff are with them at separate hospitals. three—time winner and current world champion mark selby has booked his place in the quarterfinals with a narrow win over mark williams. the world number one had a 3—1 lead, but williams clawed his way back to 4-4 before forcing the match into an 11th and deciding frame. he missed an easy blue, though, and selby took advantage with a break of 89 to take the win. he took the match 6—5. selby will face barry hawkins in the last eight after he thrashed shaun murphy by 6—1. breaks of 79, 89, 85 and 50 from the left—hander condemned the 2015 champion to an early exit. that's all from sportsday, coming up in a moment, the papers. hello and welcome to our local head
10:43 pm
to what the papers will be bringing us to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are former labour adviser and comedian ayesha hazarika and neil midgley, media commentator at the telegraph. metro leads with boris johnson's comments causing furry among eu leaders. the foreign secretary said france's president was behaving like a wwii camp guard over brexit. the same story is on the express front page. the newspaper also quotes david davis, the brexit secretary said he would stand up to the eu if it threatened britain with retaliation over leaving. britain's informal trade negotiations is a telegraph lead. according to the paper's sources, ministers and officials are in talks with 12 countries, including china, india,
10:44 pm
australia and south korea, as well as middle eastern nations such as saudi arabia and oman. the guardian leads on president obama's explanation of why he commuted the prison sentence of former us soldier chelsea manning. we are going to get into that use conference in a moment, but first the metro, ayesha, eu fury at boris nazi dig, what on earth is this about?! yesterday we were having theresa may saying that we were going to take a very constructive approach with our brexit negotiations. right... that seems to have come to a bit of an abrupt halt today! because borisjohnson likened hollande, president hollande of france, to being like a world war ii guard, and ministering punishment
10:45 pm
beatings to anyone chooses to escape. has not gone down well particularly well with our friends in europe, the lead negotiator has called his comments abhorrent, but theresa may's people are saying it is all fine. we know they do not think it is all fine. i think they probably do think it is fine. think it is all fine. i think they probably do think it is finelj think they have taken a calculation that this will probably work for the people that they needed to work for, the people that they needed the speech to talk to yesterday. only at the weekend we were still calling out the weekend we were still calling our esteemed president theresa maybe. she has shown in her speech that there is a thatcherite backbone that there is a thatcherite backbone that we never knew she had. as she talks us out of the single market. and then boris goes off and, you
10:46 pm
know, in votes world war ii, it is a bit like dad's army, unionjack arrows extending over the continent. so theresa may has managed to get the 52% on board, that is what the speech did, and that is what these headlines suggest, that she has done well as far as the majority of the right—leaning press is concerned. but what about the a8%? right—leaning press is concerned. but what about the 48%?|j right—leaning press is concerned. but what about the 4896? i think she is making a very strong political calculation. she is not really that bothered about the 48%, she is very much sending a kind of patriotically, nostalgic, british message to those people. and she's trying to attract voters from different parties, sending a message to people in labour heartlands that voted leave, that they can stick with their because she will deliver on immigration about everything else. and she tried to send a message to ukip supporters as well, saying, don't go to ukip, stick with
10:47 pm
the conservatives, we will deliver on immigration. the only thing she ca res on immigration. the only thing she cares about now is immigration, it isa cares about now is immigration, it is a political calculation. neil, the daily express, we won't be bullied by eu, is what ayesha is saying fair about the 48%?|j disagree about the 48, there were some vox disagree about the 48, there were some vox pops disagree about the 48, there were some vox pops on disagree about the 48, there were some vox pops on the news last night, people from the 48, they were quite encouraged, because it is strong, it is patriotic, and people can see that there is a worst—case scenario where we just walk away with no deal, we go back to wto rules, like the us and everybody else. they are not brilliant. the tariffs, as they keep telling us, will be cancelled out by the fall in the value of sterling for our
10:48 pm
exporters. there are all sorts of things like financial passporting in the city of london, but people are how the city of london, but people are now seeing that theresa may has now raised that, this is the prospect, we might have to walk away if our partners would do a deal. and the markets have not fallen, employment is ok, economic growth went up in the second half of last year. people are not feeling the brexit disaster. my are not feeling the brexit disaster. my feeling is we have all got to calm down the rhetoric, that remainers should not make everything a catastrophe, there has got to be a middle way. and also, i am not a remoaner! this threat of walking away is what the 48 worried about,
10:49 pm
because theresa may said, at the beginning of a speech, i am going to protect workers' rights, but, at the end, if we don't get a deal, we will walk away. you could be talking about a britain that as the come a bit of a tax saving and cuts business regulation, red tape. —— that has become. she has said that she will protect them, are you calling her a liar already?” she will protect them, are you calling her a liar already? i think she is facing in two different directions. the 48 were told before the vote that it was all going to come crashing down immediately after june the 23rd. george osborne... people believe there are going to get that money for the nhs from the bus! i had enough of a headache during the campaign, not tonight, please! let's go to the telegraph, britain on a trade crusade, the international trade secretary, liam fox, is already scoping out the lie
10:50 pm
of the land, you would expect that, wouldn't you ? of the land, you would expect that, wouldn't you? he's doing what is called trade audits, starting to prepare the ground for doing deals, in talks with about 12 countries, and eu leaders have tried to say, you can't start doing any trade deals now, but they are saying...m isa deals now, but they are saying...m is a bit ofa deals now, but they are saying...m is a bit of a grey area, surely we can be talking to anyone we like. to me, that makes sense, i don't think thatis me, that makes sense, i don't think that is unusual, and lots of sectors are doing trade emissions all the time outside the eu, so i don't think there is anything surprising in that. but later in the article, david davis, the brexit secretary, says that the government is really keen to bring back that target of net migration to be low 100,000. it is quite a tortured history, these migration targets, and i think this is something that has coloured theresa may's view of it,
10:51 pm
particularly having been home secretary, and it was said that she did not hit those targets. so make no mistake, immigration is absolutely central to this, they are making a calculation which says this is an argument about the politics of immigration, rightly or wrongly. well, i think that there was, again, a viewpoint about by the remain campaign, i a viewpoint about by the remain campaign, lam a viewpoint about by the remain campaign, i am eight remainer, by the way... same as me! part of the 48% and happy! the way... same as me! part of the 4896 and happy! i am happier... i am scottish, iam never 4896 and happy! i am happier... i am scottish, i am never happy! there was this view that there will be this price that we would have to pay for entry, for access to the single market, once we leave, the europeans would exact a price. and there was never any thought that there might bea never any thought that there might be a price the other way around. and now, for access to our market, first
10:52 pm
of all, the fifth largest economy in the world, and now the government is getting, after months of paralysed indecision, is showing a bit of spirit and a bit of humour, with boris's comments, and with liam fox, who was not really supposed to be doing trade deals when we are in the customs union, but what are they going to do, fire us? i was going to say, what are they going to do?! two of these 12 countries, by the way, where he is doing early talks, china and india. if you get them, you are doing all right. and that is why boris is there now, making comments about the nazis! the guardian, ok, neil, justice has been served, obama defends manning leniency. chelsea manning is the former soldier who leaked classified documents to
10:53 pm
wikileaks and a julian assange's name at the time, sentenced to 35 years in prison, and this is a thing that american presidents do as they leave office, they grant leniency to, ithink leave office, they grant leniency to, i think it is 209 people that obama has granted leniency to. so chelsea manning's sentence has ended, she will be freed, and people are up in arms, saying she got a 35 year sentence because she did the biggest breach of data confidentiality, classified data confidentiality, classified data confidentiality in us history. and there is a really interesting article in the new yorker saying, when you look at it more carefully, she has already served a lot longer than anybody else has served previously. and we might need leakers in the trump administration! that is a very good point! ayesha,
10:54 pm
julian assange has said he would give him is of up to the united states if chelsea manning was released. let's see if the honours his word. i did see somebody outside the embassy, no sign of life in terms of him, but the other interesting thing about this final press c0 nfe re nces , interesting thing about this final press conferences, look, we are already mourning obama not being there, his exit approval ratings are very high. 6096 plus. we have become accustomed to his grace, his humour, but he said his daughters are not planning, very disappointed about the result, they are not planning to follow him into politics, but he doesn't say anything about his wife. i still wonder why you would want to do thejob after you i still wonder why you would want to do the job after you have seen your husband do it. what, be the most powerful person in the world? there isa powerful person in the world? there is a bit ofa powerful person in the world? there is a bit of a downside to that as well! the times, british bubbly, we have finally got... we can't call it
10:55 pm
champagne, that is already taken, ayes ha, champagne, that is already taken, ayesha, we champagne, that is already taken, ayes ha, we have champagne, that is already taken, ayesha, we have got a name, it looks like. we have, it is called british phase, we have to have our names on everything. —— tempt the. i thought we could have called it something like brolly! i am not sure about british fizz. they have try to come up british fizz. they have try to come up with also lots of names, one was named after a scientist in the 19th century. british fizz does what it says on the tin — or bottle, doesn't it? apparently it sounds good to eight new york wine merchant who came up with it. it sounds like the sort of thing you get in a can! oh
10:56 pm
dear, ok, all right! thanks very much indeed. enjoy some british fizz tonight! that is the papers, you can see the front pages of all of them online. if you have missed the programme any evening, you can catch and later on iplayer. thanks to neil and ayesha. there will be subtle changes in our weather for bean exudates, the contrast will be very similar. —— for the next few days. through the day and through the last couple of days we have had high pressure and
10:57 pm
this week weather front sitting in the centre of the uk, and it won't move much, another weather front, the centre of the uk, and it won't move much, another weatherfront, a week weather front, across the northern half of the country as well. so little changes, and where well. so little changes, and where we keep the weather front, there will only be subtle breaks in the cloud, frost and fog will be limited. whereas in southern areas, in particularly the north—east, where we get breaks in the cloud, we will have a sharp frost. so scenes like this will greet us in the morning, this was west berkshire, whereas and need the cloud it will be quite murky again. —— whereas underneath the cloud. hill fog lingering, chilly but bright start in southern areas, not so cold, but again rather grey and murky for many parts of the uk. it looks quite cloudy, for example, across northern ireland, temperature starting at 7-8dc, ireland, temperature starting at 7—8dc, not rising much through the day. patchy rain for the highlands
10:58 pm
and islands, and where we have got low cloud, this is how it may well look, this was straight and bassett in staffordshire earlier on wednesday. —— drayton bassett. we could have available bit more cloud coming in across east anglia compared with the dayjust gone, chilly under the cloud, particularly where we have had a frosty start, for example in east anglia first thing. friday is very similar, cloud sinking further southwards, frost not quite as extensive, sunshine not as extensive, a chance of better brea ks as extensive, a chance of better breaks further north, eastern england. the reason for the slow—moving and lack of changing the weather is high pressure, very dominant high affecting much of europe, keeping the weather fronts at bay, and into the weekend there will be some usable weather, yes, malia dry, a little bit more sunshine, but still pretty chilly. bye— bye. sunshine, but still pretty chilly.
10:59 pm
bye—bye. —— mainly dry. this is bbc news. i'm clive myrie. the headlines at 11: boris johnson comes under attack for accusing some european leaders of wanting to punish the uk for leaving the eu. if mr hollande wants to administer punishment beatings to anybody who chooses to escape rather in the manner of some world war two movie, then i don't think that is the way forward. meanwhile, the president of the european commission, jean—claude juncker, promises to seek a "balanced" brexit deal while warning of difficulties ahead. in his final news conference as president, barack obama calls on donald trump's administration to lead by example, to prevent big countries from "bullying" smaller ones. scientists declare that 2016 was the warmest year on record, and man made climate change is to blame. newsnight,
