‘of folly of those allegations and act upon them. just four days before the start of the six nations championship, jonny sexton has been ruled out of ireland's opener against scotland. the fly—half has failed to recover in time from a calf injury that he picked up earlier this month while playing for leinster. peter o'mahony also misses out on the murrayfield match with a hamstring problem. there's a double blow for wales in the pack lock luke charteris will miss the match against italy in rome on sunday. he has a fractured bone in his hand. and charteris‘ bath team mate, number eight taulupe faletau is also out, as he continues to recover from a knee problem. both should be fit for their second match which is against england in cardiff. the starting 15 will be named on thursday. the transfer window shuts at 11 o'clock in england, and at midnight in scotland.

10:42 pm
to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are journalist and broadcaster aasmah mir and matt mcallester, editor of newsweek international. tomorrow's front pages, starting with. .. the telegraph leads with comments by president trump's senior trade adviser, who has accused germany of using the weak euro, to exploit the us. the ft has the same story. the paper also pictures ken clarke speaking during the brexit debate in the commons. uk faces return to inequality of thatcher years is the guardian headline. the squeeze is will hit the poor hardest.
10:43 pm
the metro says rail operators have announced a big shake up in train fares — which they claim will see passengers always being offered the cheapest available price. the same story on the times, which also features claims that thousands of newly qualified doctors are unprepared to do basic tasks. according to the mail, health tourism is costing the nhs millions of pounds because of what it calls chaotic billing. trump euro, attacking germany over the euro now. he has trained his guns on the continent of europe. some people would say this is unprecedented because donald trump is very aggressively going for brussels, now going for berlin. on the other side, people would say he's doing what he said he would do, looking out for american interests. what his accusing germany of doing here is profiting from a weak euro,
10:44 pm
and the flip side of that is that the dollar is underperforming hugely because of this. donald trump has to put his money where his mouth is, quite literally. so you can see this both ways. very aggressive, unprecedented, never seen before policy of calling out people that until now have not been. on the other side you can see this is donald trump calling out people for manipulating currencies, which is i think what he is potentially saving to the detriment of the american economy. is it manipulation or is germany simply taking advantage of a wea k germany simply taking advantage of a weak euro? which is a result of a host of things going on in the european union? it is notjust germany according to president trump, it isjapan and china. he's going round the world picking fights rapidly. there is a sense of
10:45 pm
potential retaliation here because yesterday chancellor angela merkel sort of told him off, reminded him what the refugee convention is. and so what the refugee convention is. and so there is a sense within the first few days of this administration of tit for tat. the question of whether there is manipulation or not is being lost in trouble against the world at this point. this will be hugely popular with his supporters, i'm stating the obvious here but we have to remember that. to 50% perhaps of the electorate or the world population, this is aggressive tit for tat, but to the other 50% he's doing what he said he would do. he said in that interview with michael gove, he suggested that you don't see many share these on the streets of berlin. he's got a point, hasn't he? the response was make
10:46 pm
better cars! which is fair enough, i suppose. the guardian, trump travel ban. opposition to the travel ban grows, ban. opposition to the travel ban gi’ows , we ban. opposition to the travel ban grows, we know what amber rudd thinks of it. she is against it, and also we have one of the powerful, richest tech barons in the united states, the founder of amazon who has put his weight behind it. for a while the tech companies were on the defence. traditionally firmly supportive of the democratic party, and when trump was elected they went to trump tower, met with him and realised that especially companies like google who have contributed to individuals greatly as democratic candidates they had to make friends with the new administration. that's lasted about five seconds and what happened was with this ban huge
10:47 pm
numbers... in silicon valley there basically no that doesn't have a relative or family member or a colleague or themselves if they came from another country so it is almost next essential threat to a key part of the american economy. they are fighting back. isn't thisjust the liberal left again as far as trump supporters are concerned ? liberal left again as far as trump supporters are concerned? getting hot and bothered about something thatis hot and bothered about something that is not important. this travel ban makes sense to them. yes, but what they have to consider is this is the new media, we are talking about media tech companies and if you are talking about affecting the workforce of these companies, that's something you could argue might impact the american economy as well so we impact the american economy as well so we have to put that aside and look at the bigger picture. apple is
10:48 pm
the most profitable company in the united states so you —— would you wa nt united states so you —— would you want to hurt that engine of growth? asi want to hurt that engine of growth? as i say, as 48% of americans support this economy, and the poll suggests they do, then this person is talking rubbish. yes, he and congress will make these decisions over the next four years. hasn't he also made this point the travel ban is for 90 days, not a permanent thing so ifjeff brazil is concerned he will not get some bright spark from somalia or whatever, he seems to be sort of shouting about something that perhaps isn't going to bea
10:49 pm
something that perhaps isn't going to be a problem. it's the sense of uncertainty. we see it is germany today, what will it be tomorrow? it is hard to keep up actually. you we re is hard to keep up actually. you were right to point out it is a temporary ban, if i'm able to use that word. you are not! you will get a tweet tonight at 4am. how dare you! he says they had to implement it quickly so the bad dudes didn't rush in, so why after 90 days would be lifted so they could come back in anyway? you are right to raise it but it's unlikely this will only be for 90 days. that's my feeling anyway. it does seem odd, there hasn't been an attack on american soil by foreigners since 9/11 and
10:50 pm
restrictions are very tight so they must be doing something right, so why upset all of that? why we come back to the a0%. there are stories today and a lot of reporters in the state are going to the heartland, ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, the key states that swung it for trump, and they think it is great. for once someone we and they think it is great. for once someone we voted for is doing what they said they would do. and doing it very quickly. someone we voted for is pandering to our fears. that is not how they put it... pandering to or addressing our fears. absolutely, i'm not passing an opinion, simply throwing stuff out there. it was a campaign, whether
10:51 pm
you supported it or not, that was fundamentally about fear. it's a terrible situation america is in everything is going wrong. obama was a lwa ys everything is going wrong. obama was always about hope, this just resonated. if you say there is a bogeyman out there and you are the person who can deal with it, you are laughing, i suggest. person who can deal with it, you are laughing, isuggest. if person who can deal with it, you are laughing, i suggest. if you person who can deal with it, you are laughing, isuggest. if you bring person who can deal with it, you are laughing, i suggest. if you bring up the front page of the financial times, it is... kc. the great survivor, kenneth clarke. no, kinky —— king canute! ijust thought of that. the bill giving the government the right to trigger article 50
10:52 pm
shouldn't go through, he's saying and he isn't a lone voice, is he? the thing about ken clarke is he stuck to his beliefs for years and yea rs, stuck to his beliefs for years and years, and this will obviously put him at odds with his party and theresa may, and we know people like anna soubry for example who didn't vote out but who will back it. much to be admired, you could argue, ken clarke is going against the grain, and what an interesting picture it was yesterday being applauded by labour and was yesterday being applauded by labourand snp was yesterday being applauded by labour and snp ministers. it is the kind of thing you never thought you would see but you are not surprised that the things we see in parliament any more. and maths, the irony through all of this is that the majority of my lifetime, the backdrop to europe was squabbles within the conservative party. at this incredibly important moment in
10:53 pm
british history, it is the squabbles in the labour party that are actually perhaps more to the fore in the situation across the ventures. absolutely, when you have one conservative mp very much at the end of his career with nothing to lose, to be honest, he's a bit likejohn mccain in the united states, his six last years and he will say whatever he likes about donald trump, it is com pletely he likes about donald trump, it is completely different in the labour party which is completely fragmented over this. you would think they couldn't find any more reasons to split and fragment and article 50 has done that. there were signs of it during the election campaign. jeremy corbyn's seven out of ten enthusiasm for staying in the
10:54 pm
european union foreshadowed what we have now. you try to get your average rail ticket, you have got to go through a menu that goes on for yea rs, go through a menu that goes on for years, longer than the bible, but now they are going to slim things down for us. the story is they will trial uncertain line is much simpler fa res. trial uncertain line is much simpler fares. there are actually 16 million different types of rail fares in britain, so it is longer than the king james bible. that was a joke! 15 million, and it will all be fine. extreme million. 16 million apparently. that is fake news, that cannot be true. how will they make it simpler? they will cut out a lot of, if you go here you have to buy an extra ticket, more of a direct
10:55 pm
through line. they will tell you at the beginning how you can get the cheapest fare as opposed to being given an affairthat cheapest fare as opposed to being given an affair that is expensive and then having to split the journey, buying lots of single tickets and making it cheaper that way. it seems ridiculous. anything to do with rail fares is ridiculous with both sides blaming each other, and rail companies saying we cannot do this because the government is in charge of this and that and the rest of it. i would love to think we will get the cheapest rail fare but don't hold your breath. that's not going to happen. back to the financial times. we are all about automation, bank teller is being usurped by atm machines, checking out at the supermarket, now we have a robot that can play poker and beat people. i remember when i was a kid getting a first video game. for christmas i
10:56 pm
wa nt a first video game. for christmas i want one of these, a robot that has just beaten four of the world's top professional poker players and has won nearly 1.8 million so the game is upfor won nearly 1.8 million so the game is up for human beings around the poker table. i was going to say you can have a pretty stern face if you are robot, pretty stern robocop. thank you very much for looking at some of the stories behind the headlines. that is it from my guests tonight, and thank you for watching. goodbye. hello, good evening. all our weather will be coming in from the west for the start of february. we can see it queueing up out in the atlantic. that was today's cloud, this cloud arriving later in the south—west on wednesday, and more significant area of cloud on thursday, and this cloud
10:57 pm
near new york made ring stormy conditions by the end of the week. if you are wondering what the sunshine looks like, we got some eventually today in northern ireland but for many parts of the uk it was a day to forget really. grey with drizzle, and it has been turning wetter in the last few hours over england and wales. that rain will creep eastwards, becoming drier later out towards the west. we have some breaks in the cloud over scotla nd some breaks in the cloud over scotland and northern ireland, the touch chilly here. a damp start for most of us on wednesday, hill fog with drizzle, rain pushing eastwards but away from here it should brighten up for a while with sunshine on the way which will be a welcome change ahead of some rain later in northern ireland, wales and the south—west. my older dates than the south—west. my older dates than the last few. as we head into
10:58 pm
thursday, this is the first big area of low pressure getting close to our shores. the centre tracking close to northern ireland, but here in the —— here it will be a mild and windy day. that moves away, and this is the next one, the headache towards the next one, the headache towards the end of the week. low—pressure approaching our shores but where will it go and will it develop? some computer models run the area of low pressure to the south, less impact, that scenario is less likely. the more likely scenario is for the low pressure to deepen, develop, turn to the north, head towards the uk and that will have more impact. some wet weather but also windy weather, especially towards the south—west of the uk. winds possibly reaching 80
10:59 pm
mph. wet and windy weather moving northwards. this is bbc news. the headlines at 11: after worldwide protests, the home secretary calls president trump's travel ban "wrong," saying it could help so—called islamic state to recruit supporters. islamic state and daesh will use any possibility they can to create the environment they want to radicalise people and bring them over to their side. it is a propaganda opportunity for them potentially. but after sacking america's top legal officer for disagreeing with the ban, donald trump is holding firm. mps are debating the bill that will begin the process of britain leaving the eu. when and what did lord coe know about russia's doping scandal? m ps wa nt a nswers after new revelations. and in newsnight, we bring you a story that goes right
