11:15 pm
to the responsibility of leadership in the modern world. "haven't you noticed? sometimes opposites attract." so said theresa may en—route to her meeting with donald trump. she's been turning on the charm for senior republicans this evening so how will she handle the president? we'll hearfrom former labour leader ed miliband. on the eve of summit to discuss gay sex and the clergy, we discuss the church of england policy to pretend just not happening. tomorrow, the long awaited sequel to trainspotting opens in cinemas everywhere... but what was it about that film that entranced a whole generation? it is primarily a youth book, and a youth movie. because i would rather be, kind of, on drugs in a bedsit in my 20s than i would be sailing around the bay of biscay in a yacht in my 50s, there's no question! good evening.
11:16 pm
theresa may is in the us tonight. charming senior republicans with a speech in philadelphia and stressing the historic ties between the uk and the us. her messages on leadership, free trade and shared values went down well with her audience. tomorrow — the diplomacy might get trickier. in the commons before she left for philadelphia, politicians of all stripes were queuing up to offer her advice, but she has to walk a tightrope... if she'd listened to the majority of them she would have a list of grievances in her briefcase, everything from human rights to climate change to misogyny. in fact, the new president has offered the hope that we might have a closer relationship than over the last eight years — after all, he wants a new trade deal and he's a big fan of brexit. our diplomatic editor mark urban is here. what was the tone of her speech? it was reaching out for what a lot
11:17 pm
of people in downing street sea as a big political opportunity in the uk, but problematic as his reputation may be, his remarks are favourable of the uk, and at the expense of germany, president obama praised those countries so high in his last weeks in office, they constituted an opportunity. let's hear what she had to say. president trump's victory, achieved in defiance of all the pundits and the polls, rooted not in the corridors of washington but in the hopes and aspirations of working men and women across this land. you are part of this victory, in the congress and the senate, where you swept all before you, secured with great effort and achieved with an important message of national renewal. and because of this, because of what you have done together, the cause of that great victory that you have won, america can be stronger, greater and more confident in the years ahead. fascinatingly there, not too many mentions
11:18 pm
of president trump, but addressing the congressmen and women and senators directly a few times, and mentions of nato too. it is a congressional do, this conclave, but one can see her acknowledging the complexity of the way that power is dispensed in washington, and reaching out directly to those people and making her pitch to them as well. of course, president trump tomorrow. she is meeting donald trump tomorrow but one leader will not be next in line? it was supposed to be happening next week, president pena nieto of mexico was meant to come, this would be the beginning of tough talk about trade and the wall. all of those things but people have been asking, what will happen when trump sends one of these tweets? that is exactly what happened today. he said they may as well not come if they are not prepared to pay for the wall. a couple of hours later, in mexico city, it was announced that the meeting was. that the meeting was off.
11:19 pm
that wrong—footed the president for a while, he appeared on live television saying that he would slap a 20% tariff on mexican imports then people around him in the white house moved back a bit, you had to put legal and other arrangements in place. we are beginning to see the first signs of someone who has the impulse to act like president putin, dealing with the constitutions of the democracy. but, theresa may is in there tomorrow. there is an aspect where people understand that president obama was not that great for britain in some ways, and this is a new opportunity to define, as she said, redefine, a special relationship. until last week, there was a president widely esteemed in britain who didn't exactly return the love. he removed winston churchill's bust from the oval office,
11:20 pm
couldn't forget the treatment his grandfather received in kenya and plainly considered germany a more important ally than britain. as i reflect back over the last eight years, i could not ask for a steadier or more reliable partner on the world stage. now, of course, there's a president who alarms or appals a great many britons, but who, in marked contrast to obama, is seeing theresa may ahead of all other foreign leaders, and, it seems, couldn't be more supportive of brexit. it's not a bad start. he doesn't seem to like the european union. he seems to like brexit. he seems to be encouraging other people to follow our example in leaving the european union. now, a lot of people in the united kingdom consider these things to be terrible negatives, but it does give theresa may some sort of basis or springboard. it was palmerston, and who better
11:21 pm
for this age in which we seem to be turning to i9th—century style jostling nationalisms. he said, britain has no eternal allies and no eternal enemies. only eternal interests. so, if it's in britain's vital interest to cosy up to donald trump, why not? the question is of course whether it's also in the interests of an "america first" president. this is a protectionist president, so any idea that he's going to open up to our market... he's the big player in this. we stand to lose our environmental protections, our food standards, our food assurances, and this will be a trojan horse for trump. britain can of course offer trump something back in some areas. if the donald accuses many nato allies of being freeloaders, that's not so different to long—held a downing street views. instead of planning expensive new headquarters or dreaming of a european army, what europe needs to do now is to spend more
11:22 pm
on its own defence. that is the best possible approach to the trump presidency. but on so many questions, from policy towards israel to torture, putin or withdrawal of funding from the un, britain is on a quite different page. how to break the news to trump gently? this is not going to be easy for her. she's got to steer between not behaving like a british poodle to the american president, but at the same time, creating a atmosphere in which, as she said herself, you can invest new meaning in the special relationship. these days, and we saw this during the last visit here by the chinese president, diplomacy as demanded by many on twitter or even from the floor of the house of commons would involve lecturing a foreign leader on why their values can't be more like ours. unsurprisingly, foreign leaders
11:23 pm
are no keener on that than any british leader would be. tonight, theresa may arrived in america, telling reporters frankly that any resumption of cia "enhanced interrogation" would damage intelligence sharing. with suggestions the two leaders may give a joint news conference tomorrow, the prime minister's balancing act couldn't be trickier. at least, though, she can start on the basis that, since his election, donald trump has saved some of his kindest words for britain, and has moved that famous bust of churchill back into the oval office. in a moment, we'll speak to the former labour leader ed miliband. but first — the daily telegraph columnist tim stanley is with us. good evening. hello. what should theresa may do tomorrow, should she go in all guns blazing? i think what she will do is what she is going to be doing anyway, saying one thing publicly
11:24 pm
and another privately. publicly, she has started on a strong foot saying i'm with you, notjust strategically but there is a philosophical connection between us. she rolled out lavish praise. privately, i would not be surprised if she says to him firstly, drop the language about torture. aside from britain believing it immoral, illegal and wrong, it is a propaganda coup for the enemy. i expect that she will push hard on america continuing to be the leading force within nato. i suspect what we have seen here, publicly, is not necessarily the tone behind closed doors. in that speech tonight she mentioned nato eight times, she has strong signals, but we know that donald trump does not like that and is capable of turning around and saying something less than diplomatic? we do not know that yet. we are testing trump is a president, working out of what he says publicly is what he gets on with and does.
11:25 pm
torture is an example. in the press, we need to learn to distinguish what he is saying when he is in reality television mode, when he speaks casually, and what he does. when it comes to torture, the new head of the cia says that he is against it, the head of defence is against it, heads of republicans in congress are against it. it is unlikely to happen, let's hope what he says is not what happens. and theresa may has a huge list of grievances, is it your personal view that trumping all else... not unintentional pun! there is this idea that britain will get a good trade deal, does that kick everything else out the water? no, that is what she leads on and once but she has two big about what he wants. he needs us as much as we need him? yes.
11:26 pm
he is selling himself as a great businessman but nobody ready wants to speak to him right now except the british, they are the most enthusiasts it, except perhaps the israelis. also, the association with britain carries credibility when it comes to global strategy, he can reassert that he is going to beat nato to global strategy, he can reassert that he is going to lead nato and this is his chance to reassure the world. that is what britain provides in a special relationship. did you get that sense, although the inauguration was razzmatazz, did you get a sense that there was an undertow of this? that something has happened since the inauguration, there is a different mood? i don't, rhetorically he is sticking with appeasing his base. he has taken the view that he has won by getting enough states to back me, just. i want to cling on to those people so that four years i scraped through again, rather than appealing to global leadership. it is clearly america first, is it necessarily britain second? no, i think that there
11:27 pm
is a correlation between what trump wants to achieve and what we want to achieve. when it comes to combating islamist terrorism, and trade. and this new philosophy. six months ago or so, britain was a pariah in the world, we cut ourselves off from europe and we had a president who did not really like us and we went to the back of the queue. suddenly, we are best mates with the leader of the world which is fantastic. thank you. ed miliband is with us. isn't it great that the british prime ministers first in line with the new leader of the free world? not with donald trump! i think that tim is underestimating what has happened this week in him becoming president, banning refugees, endorsing torture... hang on, endorsing torture...? it is dizzying, starting a trade war with mexico today, listing sanctions on saturday... this is not a normal time. her speech was a perfectly decent
11:28 pm
one, if it had been normal times. but to align yourself so closely with his project? which is what she did. i think that was a mistake. if ed miliband was prime minister, would you have gone? yes. and, speaking to senior republicans, would... i probably would not have been speaking to senior republicans! what would your line have been? let me put it this way, i prefer angela merkel to theresa may in how this is being handled. think about what angela merkel did the day after the presidential election. she said that a partnership with america is important but on the basis of particular norms and values, on human rights, commitment to equality and things which are important. you don't take tim stanley's point? this is mood music for a particular audience? signals matter, trump only respects strength, and they matter to a reputation around the world. let me take issue with one thing
11:29 pm
in that film, and what tim said, president obama. .. what is it about this sudden denigration of president obama? as leader of the opposition, i used to think that he has a fantastic relationship with president obama, david cameron. i wasjealous! suddenly, president obama is cast as the enemy of britain... but let's be clear, during that debate on the eu referendum, barack obama said quite clearly that there would be no special treatment. but he took a position on brexit, i think it was a bad thing or a good thing, personally he said we need a strong europe and britain would make europe stronger. i think the notion that we had an enemy in the white house and now that means regulation.
11:30 pm
they have less regulation than us. so, i think this trade deal is really dangerous, it's a trojan horse where we seem to be locking ourselves in donald trump's boot. we actually haven't, theresa may was quite careful. i think it is right what mark said, when it comes to going and lecturing other people, we all have memories. we have memories of gordon brown going to china and expecting to hear great things about liberty and freedom in china, was that behind closed doors gritter muck it was not in public. i thought that you would mention tony blair and george bush. that ended pretty badly... there is a lesson about that. our alliances with america should be based on values and those what we hold in common, not simply on the idea that we want to be at the front of a notional queue. but the idea that you ideological agree with every leader around the world caused nonsense.
11:31 pm
you need to make priorities. i wonder if what you do, you say, if you are going to ban muslims from certain countries, we will not work together. if you consider torture, we will not work together. if you deny climate change, we went work together. really? i think it is time, this is about self—interest. i think it is tone, this is about self—interest. let me be clear, it is self—interest, that we are strong defending climate change. it is in our interests to defend a two state solution for israel and palestine, donald trump wants to overturn it it seems. there were good notes in theresa may's speech tonight, she had to mention those things but that was not the main thrust of the speech. britain voted for brexit, donald trump supports it... there is one point of agreement. but he wants nigel farage to be ambassador. goodness me! what hinges on this trade deal... if you think it is a get out ofjail card for any economic problems
11:32 pm
you might get for brexit, maybe you think it is worth us locking ourselves in the boot. i am very sceptical and let's not forget, he is a protectionist. they are very sceptical of trade deals and he's about to impose tariffs on mexico. let's go back to that question and conversation about torture. you said it would be dependent on the chief and cia... if you were prime minister, would you, at this moment, allow british agents to share intelligence with american agents, if there was any chance of torture? no, we can't be complicit in torture, absolutely not. we need strong words and signals. our reputation around the world matters. foreign leaders will be looking at what unfolds tonight. let's talk a little bit again about brexit and labour, labour seems to be in disarray again, we have had a
11:33 pm
resignation from the shadow cabinet. will there ever be any kind of peace within labour when there are two distinct positions on brexit. i'm not sure it is about peace, labour is wrestling with the difficult issue which is that we represent for the kind of deal, and let me just say this one point, because people may not have focused on this. the vote and amendments that we have to this article 50 bill matter, and a matter for this reason most of all. what kind of vote do we get at the end? do we get a vote which is take it or leave it, either fall out of the european union without a deal, or do we get a vote that is meaningful,
11:34 pm
which is what keir starmer and jeremy corbyn and others are pushing for, and they are right to do so. ed miliband, thank you very much. as we've just been talking about, the labour leaderjeremy corbyn‘s doesn't want his mps to block the triggering of article 50. trouble is — not all his mps are playing along with that plan. a clear decision that we want all of oui’ a clear decision that we want all of ourmps to a clear decision that we want all of our mps to support article 50. but no commitment to a three line whip? it's clearly a three line whip. it is a vote on article 50. my constituents voted to remain in the european union. i am leaning towards voting against article 50 because i'm here to represent their views. and if i have to resign my shadow ministerial position because of the stance i take, it would be unfortunate, but i am here as the mp for hampstead and kilburn. i'm joined now by our political editor nick watt and the mps did indeed resign. that's right, sojeremy corbyn faced a mini rebellion today, at one point it looked like it might reach into his inner circle of supporters with thoughts that clive lewis, the shadow business secretary, might resign, but in the end
11:35 pm
he stayed put, and tulip siddiq said that she would go. and the transport minister has told the cambridge news that he will be standing by his constituents, 75% of whom voted remain, and he will live with the consequences. so what does this mean for labour? this is a rare rebellion where the leadership has some sympathy with the rebels, and that is notjust becausejeremy corbyn campaigned to remain in the european union, though not with much enthusiasm, but this says that they are in a unique position, two thirds of voters supported remain, but two thirds of labour mps represent constituents that voted leave, so there is talk about how opinion was divided, and we can expect some defying of the leadership, but it may not take
11:36 pm
the traditional form but it may not take the traditional form of the sack, and it shows a dilemma for a party thatis struggling to come to terms with brexit britain. we will leave newsnight there because we wanted to bring you another chance to see the speech by therese are made, delivered a few hours ago in the united states. she was speaking to republicans, members of congress, in the state of philadelphia and she was speaking to them about the shared values that she says that britain and america have that she hoped will be sustained. this is what she had to say. can i say um majority leader mcconnell, mr speaker, distinguished members of the senate and the half, i would like to thank congress and
11:37 pm
the congressional institute for these invitation to be here today. the opportunity to visit the united states is always special. and to be invited to be the first serving head of government to address this important conference is an honour indeed. i defy any person to travel to this great country at any time and not to be inspired by its promise and its example. for more than two centuries the very idea of america drawn from history and given written form in a small hall not far from here has lit up the world. that idea, that all are created equal and that all are born free, has never been surpassed in the long history of political thought. applause
11:38 pm
and it is here on the streets and halls of this great city of philadelphia that the founding fathers first set it down. but the textbook of freedom was written. and that this great nation that grew from sea to shining sea was born. since that day, it has been america's destiny to bear the leadership of the free world and to carry that heavy responsibility on its shoulders. but my country, i“ iii, of britain and united kingdom of great britainand ireland, has been proud to northern ireland, has been proud to share the burden and to walk alongside you at every stage. applause and cheering
11:39 pm
for the past century, britain and america and the unique and special relationship that exists between us, have taken the idea conceived by those 56 rank and file ordinary citizens as president reagan called them come forward. and because we have done so, time and again it is the relationship between us that has defined the modern world. 100 years ago this april, it was your intervention in the first world war that helped britain, france, our friends in the commonwealth and other allies to maintain freedom in europe. applause a little more than 75 years ago, you
11:40 pm
responded to the japanese attack on pearl harbor byjoining britain in the second world war and defeating fascism, not just in the second world war and defeating fascism, notjust in the pacific but in africa and europe too. and later, in the aftermath of these wars, our two countries led the west through the cold war, confronting communism and ultimately defeating it. not just through military might but by winning the war of ideas and by proving that open liberal democratic societys —— societies will always defeat those that are closed, coercive and cruel. but the leadership provided by our two countries through the special
11:41 pm
relationship has done more than win wa i’s relationship has done more than win wars and overcome adversity. it made the modern world. the institutions upon which that world relies conceived or inspired by our two nations working together. the united nations, in need of reform but vital still, has its foundations in the special relationship. from the original declaration of saint james ‘s palace to the declaration by united nations signed in washington and drafted themselves by a winston churchill and president franklin d roosevelt. the world bank and international monetary fund, born in the post world —— world war were conceived by our two nations working together. and nato was established on the bonds of trust and mutual interest that exists between us.
11:42 pm
some of these organisations are in need of reform and renewal to make them relevant to our needs today. but we should be proud of the roll out two nations, working in partnership, played in bringing them into being and in bringing peace and prosperity to billions of people as a result. applause because it is through our actions over many years, working together to defeat evil or to open up the world that we have been able to fulfil the promise of those who first spoke of the special nature of the relationship between us. the promise of freedom, liberty and the rights of freedom, liberty and the rights of man. we must never cease, churchill said, to proclaim in fearless tones of the great principles of freedom and the rights of man, which are the joint inheritance of the english—speaking
11:43 pm
world. and which, through magna ca rta , world. and which, through magna carta, the bill of rights, the happiest corpus, trial by carta, the bill of rights, the happiest corpus, trial biji’y carta, the bill of rights, the happiest corpus, trial byjury and the english common law, find their most famous declaration —— expression in the american declaration of independence. so it is my honour and privilege to stand before you today in the great city of philadelphia, to proclaim them again. tojoin of philadelphia, to proclaim them again. to join hands, of philadelphia, to proclaim them again. tojoin hands, as we pick up the mantle of leadership once more. to renew our special relationship and to recommit ourselves to the responsibility of leadership in the modern world. and it is my honour and privilege to do so at this time as dawn breaks on a new era of american renewal. for i speak to you, not just as american renewal. for i speak to you, notjust as prime minister of
11:44 pm
the united kingdom, but as a fellow conservative who believes in the same principles that underpinned the gender of your party. the value of liberty, the dignity of work, the principles of nationhood, family, prudence, patriotism and putting power in the hands of the people. principles instilled in me in a young age, principles my parents taught me in the vicarage in southern england in which i was raised. and i know it is these principles that you have put at the heart of your plans the government. and your victory in these elections gives you the opportunity to put them at the heart of these new era of american renewal as well. president trump's victory, achieved in defiance of all the pundits and the polls, and rooted, not in the corridors of washington but in the hopes and aspirations of working men and women across land, york party's
11:45 pm
victory in congress and the senate where you swept all before you, secured a great effort and achieved with an important message of national renewal. and because of this, because of what you have done together, because of the great victory you have won, america can be stronger, greater and more confident in the years ahead. applause and a newly emboldened and confident america is good for the world. an america is good for the world. an america that is strong and prosperous at home is a nation that can lead abroad. but you cannot and should not do so alone. you have said that it is time for others to step up, and i agree. sovereign countries cannot outsource their
11:46 pm
security and prosperity to america. and they should not undermined the alliances that keep us strong, by failing to step up and play their part. this is something that britain has always understood. it is why britain that is the only country in the 620, britain that is the only country in the g20, other than yours, to meet its commitment to spend 2% of gdp on the fence and to invest 20% of that in upgrading equipment. it is why britain is the only country in the 620 to britain is the only country in the g20 to spend 0.7% of gross national income on overseas development. it is why my first act as prime minister last year was to lead the debate in parliament that ensured the renewal of britain's independent nuclear deterrent. and it is why the government eyelid will increase spending on defence in every year of this parliament. it is why... —— why
11:47 pm
the government i lead will increase spending. it is why britain is a leading member alongside the united states of the coalition working successfully to defeat daesh. it is why we have agreed to send troops to estonia and poland as part of the forward presence of nato in eastern europe. we increase our troop contribution to nato's resolute support mission which defends the afg ha n support mission which defends the afghan government from terrorism and it is why we reinforce our commitment to peacekeeping operations in kosovo, south sedan and somalia. it is why britain is leading the way in pioneering international efforts to crack down on modern slavery, one of the great scourges of our world, wherever it is found. and i hope... i hope you willjoin us in that cause and i
11:48 pm
commend senator corker in particular for his work in this field and it is good to have met him here today. as americans know, the united kingdom is by instinct and history a great global nation that recognises its responsibility—— responsibilities to the world. as we end our mention of the world. as we end our mention of the european union, as the british people voted with determination and quiet resolve to do last year, we have the opportunity to reassert our belief in a confident sovereign and global britain, ready to build relationships with old friends and new allies are we are not turning our back with our friends in europe, it remains overwhelmingly in our interests and in those of the wider world that the eu should succeed and as long as we
11:49 pm
remain members we will continue to play our full partjust as we continue to co—operate on security, foreign policy and trade once we have left but we have chosen a different future for our country, a future that sees us restore our parliamentary solvent free and ourselves determination and to become even more global... applause . and to become even more global and internationalist in action and spirit. a future that takes back control on things that matter — borders, and the way we decide and interpret our laws. so that we are able to shape a better and more prosperous future for the working men and women of great britain. the future that gives us great confidence to a more internationalist role, where we meet
11:50 pm
responsibilities to friends and allies, champion international corporation and partnerships that project our values around the world and continue to act as one of the strongest and most forceful advocates full business, free market and a free trade anywhere around the globe. this is a vision of the future that my country and that i hope your country, as our closest friend and ally, can welcome and support. as we rediscover our confidence together, as it you bring you your nation as we renew ours, we have the opportunity and a responsibility to renew the special relationship for this new age. we have the opportunity to lead together again because the world is passing through a period of change and in response to that change we
11:51 pm
can either be passive bystanders or we can take the opportunity once more to lead and to lead together. i believe it is in our national interest to do so because of the world is increasingly marked by instability and threats that risk undermining our way of life and the very things that we hold dear. the end of the cold war did not give rise to a new world order, it did not lead to a new age of peace, prosperity and predictability, for some, the citizens of central and eastern europe, it brought new freedom but across the world, ancient, ethnic, religious and national rivalries which had been frozen through the decades of the cold war return. new enemies of the west and our values, in particular
11:52 pm
in the form of radical islamists have emerged and countries with little tradition of democracy, liberty and human rights— notably china and russia are— have grown more assertive in world affairs. the rise of economies, china and india, is usually welcome. billions have been lifted out of poverty and new markets for our industries have opened up but these events, coming as they have as at the same time as the financial crisis and its fallout, and a loss of confidence in the west following a 9/11 and difficult military interventions in iraq and afghanistan, have led many to feel that in this century we will experience of the eclipse of the west but other countries make it stronger, populous countries may grow richer and as they do so, they
11:53 pm
may start to embrace a more fully oui’ may start to embrace a more fully our values of democracy and liberty but even if they do not, our interests will remain, our values will ensure and there needs to defend and project them will be as important as ever so we — our two countries together — have a responsibility to lead because when others are step up as we step back it is bad for america, for britain and the world. applause .itis applause . it isin applause . it is in our interests, those of written and america together, to stand strong together, to defend our values, our interests and the very ideas in which we believe. this cannot mean a return to the failed policies of the pass. intervening in
11:54 pm
sovereign countries in an attempt to remake the world in our image are over but nor can we afford to stand idly by when the threat is real and when it is in our interests to intervene. we must be strong, smart and hardheaded and we must demonstrate the result that necessary to stand up for our interests and whether it is the security of israel in the middle east or the baltic states in eastern europe, we must always stand up for oui’ europe, we must always stand up for our friends europe, we must always stand up for ourfriends and europe, we must always stand up for our friends and allies in democratic countries in that fine themselves in tough neighbourhoods. applause . we each have different political
11:55 pm
position. there may be occasions on which we disagree but the common values and interests that bring us together are hugely powerful and as your foremost friend and ally with support many of the priorities in government has laid out full america's engagement with the world. it is why ijoin you in your determination to take on and defeat daesh and the ideology of islamist extremism at which inspires and many other terrorist groups in the world today. it is in both a national interest to do so. it will require us interest to do so. it will require us to use the intelligence provided by the finest security agencies in the world and it will require the use of military might that it also demands a wider effort because one of the lessons of fighting terrorism in the last 15 years or so is, yes, killing terrorists can save innocent
11:56 pm
lives until we killed the idea that drives them, the ideology, we will a lwa ys drives them, the ideology, we will always have to live with this threat and... applause ...andas applause and as they are defeated on the ground, the terrorists are exploiting the internet and social media to spread this ideology preying on vulnerable citizens in oui’ preying on vulnerable citizens in our countries, inspiring them to commit acts of terror in our cities. that is why we have a strategy to prevent violent extremism and why the british and american governments are working together to take on and defeat the ideology of islamist extremism. for most of us it was a very cold on thursday. for most of us it could
