1:30 pm
to create a mood map of our cities. so far we have dan's data which reveals that things like this excite hiim and one particular thing, appals him. i would speak to people about not putting dog poo in bags and then adorning trees at head—hight with those bags. you put the dog poo in the bag, you take the bag away with you. that's everywhere, is it? it's all over the country. and with that thought, we came to the end of this emotional journey across urban britain. the final feeling, confusion, as to why we were the only walkers in a place like this. david silitto, bbc news, stoke—on—trent. time for a look at the weather. here's phil avery. i was entertaining the notion of becoming a professional weather watcher early on as these glorious images flooded in from quite widely gci’oss images flooded in from quite widely across the northern half of the british isles. then this image came
1:31 pm
in andi british isles. then this image came in and i thought maybe the office does not look so bad. it's that end of the spectrum of weather which we re of the spectrum of weather which were win out this week across the british isles, spells of rain and it will get quite windy and it will become increasingly mild. the first signs of that change already there, we are looking to the atlantic rather than the continent. there is some sunshine as you have already seen from the pictures, across good parts of scotland, maybe some parts of the north of england but as you go further south and west it goes downhill rapidly. the odd patch of freezing fog which mayjust linger on to the day, tricky driving conditions, one yourfurther on to the day, tricky driving conditions, one your further south, its drive for the most part, just about this by the meadow crowd, it figures milder, ten or ii milder, ten or 11 degrees but i am not standing around in it for too long and i am not sure you will
1:32 pm
either. overnight that band of weather creeps it with further towards the east, it keeps it mild but with miss and moral. tuesday there is no getting away from it, pretty miserable all day, the range trying to get a bit further towards the east, are late on in the day ‘s south—west bright news temperatures willdip south—west bright news temperatures will dip despite the presence of the sunshine waving weather front when it moves into the north sea the timing is quite tricky, something of a weather window between two weather fronts on wednesday for at least some of you so if you need a line of washing powder that is probably the best i can offer you because that is where the front in the west is but the next in a succession of weather
1:33 pm
fronts which make thursday wet and windy across western parts, as the low pressure windy across western parts, as the low pressure moves windy across western parts, as the low pressure moves north it may well mean we bring you something potentially quite stormy into southern parts to finish the week and take us on into the weekend. a reminder of our main story this lunchtime: more thani.2 more than 1.2 million people have signed a petition calling for president trump's state visit to the uk to be called off. that's all from the bbc news at one — so it's goodbye from me — you are watching bbc news. time now for the sport. for the first time in 11 years, three british men are inside tennis‘s world top 50. dan evans is the new british number two after his impressive run to the fourth round of the australian open last week. he's up to a career high 45th — two ahead of fellow brit kyle edmund. evans beat seventh seed marin cilic and bernard tomic in melbourne
1:34 pm
during his best ever run in a grand slam. evans and edmund will play in the davis cup against canada this friday. andy murray retains his world number one ranking despite that early exit in melbourne. meanwhile, several bookmakers have made 35—year—old roger federer odds on to win another grand slam tournament after his amazing australian open victory over rafa nadal yesterday. federer ended his five year wait for an 18th major in that five set win. when i heard that in switzerland people were following me and i saw people being generally really happy for me that i won a slam again, particularly maybe this one, it's a bit of a fairy tale to come back this way. the goal is absolutely to be playing for a couple of years, hopefully. six nations chief executive john feehan says relegation from the tournament will not be introduced in the short to medium term. georgia and romania have both been pushing to be included in the annual tournament.
1:35 pm
italy were added to the old five nations tournament in 2000 and have propped up the table 11 times in the 17 tournaments since, including last season where they lost all five matches. but feehan has there are no plans to relegate the italians who open their campaign against wales next sunday in rome. it is not that long ago since they beat south africa in the autumn series. i would say in the short or medium term there is not any genuine likelihood of that happening and we are very happy how the italians are approaching it. it's a long way to go probably in terms of being competitive, but to be honest, on any given day they could beat any of the sides in the championship. we
1:36 pm
believe they are a good addition to the championship and they have proved they are worth it and deserving to be entered. patrick van aanholt has completed his transfer from sunderland to crystal palace for an undisclosed fee. the dutch left—back has signed a 4 and a half year contract. the 26 year old will be reunited with sam allardyce, having previously worked with the manager at the stadium of light. there will be two non—league clubs in the fa cup fifth round draw tonight. sutton united joined lincoln city in the hat, after pulling off a 1—0 win at home to leeds united yesterday. leeds made 10 changes for the match though. the decision by championship and premier league teams to field weakened sides has been criticised by some former players. i think they are cheating the fans. newcastle fans travelled 250 miles behind oxford yesterday expecting 13 to win. the put out a weakened team. it is again very very disappointing. watford were one of two premier league teams to get knocked out yesterday.
1:37 pm
they lost 1—0 at league one millwall, while hull were well beaten at fulham. another former player, though, phil neville, thinks that the number of changes made by the bigger clubs isn't devaluing the competition. every team is making changes, notjust the premier league teams. i think it is making the fa cup better. once you get to the fifth and sixth premier league rounds, the premier league clubs will change their teams. i'm all for playing the kids. that is all the sport for now. there will be more in the next hour. you are watching bbc news with me, simon mccoy. despite a weekend of protests, petitions and court orders against it, the white house is standing firm over president trump's ban on immigration from seven countries. the president signed his executive order on friday, bringing to an end a hectic first week in the oval office.
1:38 pm
it halted the entire us refugee programme for four months, as well as instituting a three month travel ban for nationals from iran, iraq, libya, somalia, sudan, syria and yemen. but on saturday, as thousands gathered at airports across the country to protest, the order was challenged in the courts, with officials from 16 states describing it as unconstitutional. that led to confusion all over the world. after seeking clarification, the foreign office said yesterday that uk nationals travelling to america shouldn't be affected. and responding to criticism of the ban, the president issued a statement last night saying he's not targeting muslims, and that visas would be reissued once new security measures had been implemented. while there have been numerous protests in response to the immigration ban, there are also many people who support it. tougher immigration rules were a major part of donald trump's campaign, and many see the move as the president doing what he promised. the bbc has also been hearing from some supporters of the policy on new york's staten island. more than1
1:39 pm
more than 1 million more than1 million people here have signed a petition. let's big to sir malcolm rifkind. on the basis of how many people who voted for donald trump, he is doing what he promised. the executive order he signed was a foolish one, but we can't expect the fact that he is the president of the united states, elected by the american people, and this is something he said he would do. that does not mean we sit back and do nothing, it means we sit back and do nothing, it means we ex press we sit back and do nothing, it means we express our disapproval and secondly if we have the opportunity and the united kingdom is in a special position here, we can but in
1:40 pm
a polite and firm and robust way to make our representations to the president and those around him and toa president and those around him and to a significant degree that is what theresa may has been doing. we have had some progress as far as dual nationals are concerned. a lot more work needs to be done, but it can't be done by a megaphone diplomacy or cancelling state visits. it's a mature approach that we need to have these matters are dealt with. the megaphone is moving into the house of commons. the good bea into the house of commons. the good be a possible vote. people should protest in strident terms and hopefully the white house will understand it. when it comes to how governments respond, it depends on whether you are trying to influence the other person you are seeking to
1:41 pm
deal with one is the president of the united states, the most powerful man in the world, simply to be lectured by a prime minister or president from another country does not work. what can work is if there isa not work. what can work is if there is a relationship of trust already existing between two individuals, in a polite and private way you can get changes made that might not otherwise be seen as acceptable. changes made that might not otherwise be seen as acceptablem you were foreign secretary still, you were foreign secretary still, you would be picking up the phone to washington and saying what?” you would be picking up the phone to washington and saying what? i would be saying two things. firstly, you are going to lose friends, notjust friends in terms of public opinion, but governments who will find it impossible to support you. but 2nd of may —— but secondly, the executive order does not make sense. you are denying entry to terrorists, but you are also denying entry to those who oppose terrorists. people
1:42 pm
from somalia and iran who are against terrorists. it is a pretty dumb policy. but back to the earlier point. we are talking about a president who was very much voted in with this promise on the table. president who was very much voted in with this promise on the tablem he not sticking to it? megaphone politics will not have an impact, but we have seen in other areas he can show flexibility when it is put to him in a way that he finds convincing. for example, all the questions and doubts about whether nato should continue, we now having saying he won hundred percent supports nato. regarding torture, he put himself in a ridiculous situation, he says that he thinks
1:43 pm
torture works, but he will leave it torture works, but he will leave it to his defence secretary. pretty dumb this strong language. that is because i am the former foreign secretary, not the present one! in the run—up to the american election i think you were quoted as saying that hillary clinton was the one candidate who could make you tremble. after his first week is he standing up to what you expected? he is. on most aspects of economic and trade policy because he is a businessman by background, he thinks he knows all the answers, but when it comes to foreign policy, nuclear weapons, the future of nato, he knows he is not an expert. he is a smart guy and he knows he's star. he has prejudices and he has instincts,
1:44 pm
but when it comes to the formal policy, then whether it is the defence secretary in the pentagon or the state new secretary of state in the state new secretary of state in the state department, there you are going to get a more mature consideration of the policies and we are already seeing serious science that trump takes account of that. for example, widely expected a rumoured that when he spoke to president putin he was going to announce an immediate relaxation of the sanctions against russia over the sanctions against russia over the ukraine. it did not happen. he said it is something that is being looked at. different language to that he used in the past. some flexibility there and you can exploit it by old—fashioned boring diplomacy and private, stations. that is how you can make change, not by lecturing, although that makes you fill better. is twitter the future? what's a bit. i think it is
1:45 pm
a crazy system. anyone in public life that uses twitter and uses it to comment on serious issues needs their head examined. there is no way you can deal with these issues in the time allowed on twitter. the president of the united states to be doing it is quite disturbing and i hope he stops doing it. the state visit, is already been suggested that donald trump does not want to bump into prince charles because he doesn't want to be lectured on climate change. if you were foreign secretary still, what would you say? first of all, the prince of wales does not lecture anyone. he has opinions and i can't think of anyone who is more courteous and polite. i'm sure president trump will be happy to meet the prince of wales in the same way he would be happy to meet the queen on the state visit.
1:46 pm
malcolm rifkind, thank you for joining us. thank you. the former labour leader ed miliband has said he is going to ask for an emergency debate on trump's invitation this afternoon. i believe rolling out the red carpet for president trump is wrong. this ban will make the world a more dangerous place. he needs a strong response from britain and that is to say that this cannot stand. of course president trump can come here, but not whilst the ban is in place. i will be calling later this afternoon for an emergency debate in the house of commons on president trump's ban because i think it is right that the house of commons speaks with one voice and sends a clear message to the united states that the ban is wrong, counter—productive and will make the world a more dangerous, not safer place and there is an opportunity
1:47 pm
for us to do that. in a moment a summary of the business news this hour, but first the headlines on bbc news: the petition to cancel president trump's state visit to the uk gathers more than a million signatures in protest at his clampdown on immigration over the weekend. the american embassy in london has now told citizens of the seven countries affected not to apply for visas to the states. but donald trump says only 109 people were detained over the weekend. six people have been shot dead and eight others wounded — at a mosque in quebec. canada's prime minister calls it a terrorist attack. hello. in the business news: the government has cut its stake in lloyds banking group to less than 5%. more than £18.5bn has been returned to government coffers since the lender's £20.3bn bailout. in october the government said it wanted to to sell its remaining shares in lloyds within a year. tata steel workers will be voting on a new pension offer today. the current scheme will be
1:48 pm
terminated in return for a £1bn investment over 10 years. the deal includes a two—blast furnace operation at port talbot and plans for no compulsory redundancies for the next five years. unions and officials have agreed to fully endorse the proposal. and you might feel a slight pinch on the pennies if you start your day with weetabix. the company has warned of price rises because of the lower pound. it buys wheat in dollars, so a weaker sterling means its costs have gone up. it is however going to be investing £30 million in manufacturing sites across the uk. president trump is standing firm on his ban on immigration from seven predominantly muslim countries. he's also denying the measures are targeting muslims. some of his supporters will be happy with the ban — despite an uproar from businesses. lets go over to wall street, and get the latest from the floor
1:49 pm
of the new york stock exchange with michelle fleury. there has been talk that people won't be able to hire the most talented. what situation? like don't get involved in political debate, but the ceo says after reading mo farah‘s, on his blog he felt compelled to speak out on the bands. other companies that have spoken out, starbucks have said they will make a point of trying to hire 10,000 refugees over the next five yea rs 10,000 refugees over the next five years in the 75 countries where they operate. so you are seeing companies speaking out. what is interesting is that trump has an advisory council
1:50 pm
made up of various ceos. people are looking through that to see what they have been saying. the boss of tesla sent a tweet saying he was going to seek consensus from the other leaders to try and pull forward an amendment to donald trump. others like general electric which operates in many countries, including those banned, expressed their sympathy. the boss sent an e—mail out to employees expressing sympathy. and acknowledging that this was a global company, but stopped short of condemning donald trump. as for other companies, big names like walmart and others, we have yet to hear from them, bearing in mind this has happened over the weekend, so we may learn more over the coming days. was there any support for the ban? president trump said that this is what people voted for. in business terms certainly we
1:51 pm
have not heard anything from companies on that side. those who have been speaking out in part have been doing so because it's consistent in some ways with the brand not to be too cynical. if you look at buber, the course of his company, the taxi company, they fell afoul of many activists here over the weekend. —— uber. there was a link that went viral and it said people should delete the uber account. the company then drop the surge pricing for rides tojfk. it was seen as surge pricing for rides tojfk. it was seen as then trying to profit from activists going to the airport. people were taking screenshots of them cancelling the accounts and they were there to sign up with rival companies. a prime example of
1:52 pm
a company that misjudged the mood amongst consumers. thank you very much. there will be a new scientific projects driven by the danish drugs giant who will lead the way on finding a cure for diabetes. as we have been hearing, starbucks has pledged to hire 10,000 refugees globally over the next five years in response to that executive order on
1:53 pm
immigration. the chief executive said that president trump's order had caused confusion. a quick look at the markets. the executive order has taken its toll on world whilst indices. that is it from me, i will be back in an hour. in a week of anger and demonstrations, this was america's most elite, most exclusive, best—dressed protest. hidden figures, about three black female mathematicians who helped put americans, into space was the winner of the night's top award, best ensemble. this story is about what happens when we put our differences aside and we come together as a human race. we win. the only british winner played the ultimate british figure, the queen, and she used her speech to thank co—star matt smith. you're not only a really spontaneous, exciting,
1:54 pm
incredibly talented actor, but you're also my friend, matt, and thank you for making the job a joy. there was surprise best actor award for denzel washington in fences, and emma stone's success was no a shock, the musical la la land is the talk of this town. the cast of stranger things took the prize for tv drama ensemble, and its star david harber gave one most blistering acceptance speech. we will shelter freaks and outcasts or those who have no homes, we will get past the lies, we will hunt monsters. this is another award ceremony where art has been overshadowed by politics, as many stars in this most liberal of cities are concerned about the direction in which their country is heading. james cook, bbc news, los angeles. and before we go, it may be the year of the rooster, but the world's only surviving giant panda triplets were a big lunar new year attraction for crowds in the china's southern guangdong province. these pandas are extremely rare. the likelihood of giant pandas giving birth to twins are about 50—50. but the probability of them giving birth to triplets is extremely low. there have been just three recorded triplet births since august
1:55 pm
of 2014 in the whole world. remind you of anyone? here is feel a very big the weather. don't laugh, you will only encourage him! this is certainly what many of us are him! this is certainly what many of us are going to have to get used to in the coming days because the blue skies will quit the scene as spells of rain take over. it will become whimsy. milder than of late, which some of you have been absolutely longing for. signs of that change are ready across some southern and western parts of the british isles. there is some sunshine to speak of and we will keep hold of that over scotla nd and we will keep hold of that over scotland in parts of northern england, but you have seen the cloud
1:56 pm
and there is rain. it is not all plain sailing across scotland. glorious sunny many, but there are one or two patches of fog lingering. watch out that if you are driving. northern ireland, wales, down towards the south—west, you have the worst of the crowd. it's a bit higher towards the east, but the breezes coming in from a chilly north sea, five or 6 degrees is the best i can find for you. despite the rain, 11 degrees in some spots in the south—west. a mild mild night as the south—west. a mild mild night as the cloud and rain eases its way east. this is not that the lodz, but cloud rolls in over what would have been a cool day. with the onshore breeze, nothing in the way of sunshine to speak of and this cloud rolling in with its rain. it will be a thoroughly miserable day, not only across scotland, but the eastern
1:57 pm
side of england, too. any chair at all? yes. northern ireland gets a little bit cooler, but you do have some sunshine. much of the rain is tied in with this waving weather fronts. whenever we say waving, bear in mind that timing of where the rain will be is tricky. then there isa rain will be is tricky. then there is a window of opportunity to do something outdoors until the next set of france showed their hands on thursday, which becomes a wet and windy day with perhaps a gale across western areas. then friday and the weekend, this area of low pressure moves up weekend, this area of low pressure moves up and it may be that we produce something quite stormy to finish of the week across the southern parts of the british isles. more details in the next half an hour. see you then. the petition to cancel president trump's state visit to the uk gathers more than a million signatures — but downing street says the prime minister is very happy for it to go ahead.
1:58 pm
following the executive order, the american embassy in london has now told citizens of the seven countries affected not to apply for visas to the states. boris johnson faces mps this afternoon over how britain should respond. donald trump is insisting the ban is going well — saying only 109 people were detained over the weekend — and airport problems were caused by computer issues and protestors. six people are shot dead at a mosque near quebec city — canada's prime minister calls it a terrorist attack against muslims. identified at last. an american with dementia found two years ago lost in hereford with no id — he'd been abandoned by his family.
