10:45 pm
welcome to the look ahead to what the newspapers will be bringing us tomorrow, joining me, lynn davidson, whitehall correspondent at the sun, and news editor of the financial times, peter spiegel. did you enjoy the queen's speech? as always. what else could you do but enjoy the queen's speech. labour and the liberal democrats could look to derail the prime minster‘s "brexit" lines in the lords. the times also leads with the process of britain's departure from the eu, scotland and the lords could block "brexit" legislation. the queen's speech described as a clearing of the decks for the prime minister ahead of the brexit talks. the express leads on the health of the duke of edinburgh, as the queen attends the ceremony at parliament with prince charles rather than with her husband. the guardian focuses on the fallout of the grenfell tower fire, the council inspected the tower 16 times before the tragedy. the mirror says that toxic cyanide gas may have contributed to the deaths following
10:46 pm
the fire. scandal at uber, chief executive, travis kalanick resigned. trouble for commuters in record heat, temperatures in london reach 34 heat, temperatures in london reach 3a celsius. we are going to start with the times, theresa may facing result over brexit laws, threat to timetable from scotland and the lords. theresa may, get another hurdle for her to get over now, she is facing, she obviously, as we know, house of lords, pro—euro. now we have the latest development, scottish parliament, rumours abound at westminster today that everyone is very worried all of a sudden that scottish parliament could block brexit, that is not the case, i would not say, but what they can do is and what they may do is very complex is, when do legislation goes
10:47 pm
through, eight in the queen's speech today, if there are any part of legislation that affect areas like scotland, that has to go to the parliament to vote on. they do not have a veto on this but they have a vote. it may be something they vote against at amendment, entirely unlikely, it could be the snp, which does not have a majority, but which is the biggest party, as the tories are at westminster, could be that they choose to do that, would be potentially seen as irresponsible but the result could be that scotla nd but the result could be that scotland could still fall under some kind of eu law whereas england does not, if that makes sense. the first thing could be that this stretches the whole process out. it stalls things and makes the timetable,
10:48 pm
which is already tight, even tighter. i'm learning all sorts of new words, the fuel convention, the salisbury convention, i think the salsbury convention was my wedding band! we say salisbury, we pronounce it differently. laughter every single thing that could go wrong frankly already has done. —— sewel convention. this has been forgotten slightly, how much she had to drop from the queen's speech from the manifesto, listed here, grammar schools, pension reform, devolution of business rates, winter fuel payments, withdrawal of the triple lock on pensions, free school lunches, when she became prime minister, she had the speech at downing street, and the tory party conference, she wanted to transform society, she had an agenda she was going to push forward and it is all gone, the only thing she can do now
10:49 pm
is brexit, the incredible shrinking government, one of the stories. brexit, the only thing she can do, that has been made even more difficult. potentially devolved areas, the scottish parliament thinks it should havejurisdiction over, for instance, dealing with agriculture and fisheries, if westminster decides it will hang onto those, that could be trouble in the negotiations. the front pages of the negotiations. the front pages of the daily telegraph, theresa may warns of looming constitutional crisis. the whole point for calling for a general election was to get enough of a mandate to stop the lords being able to decide that they we re lords being able to decide that they were not going to allow that through the upper chamber. how that plan has backfired, as we are seeing now, the difficulties, and as i said the hurdles she has do negotiate. the salisbury convention, dictates that if something is in the party ma nifesto, if something is in the party manifesto, if it has been in the queen's speech, then it should not be meddled with, but what the argument now is that the legitimacy
10:50 pm
of that convention is under question because theresa may did not win the majority that she so wished for. now, we have this thrown into the mix. i suppose if you are a member of the public reading this you will be holding your head in your hands, exciting for journalists to be holding your head in your hands, exciting forjournalists to write about, gives us so much to speculate on, everybody else wants to know what it really means, we do not really have a lot of answers for people. that is a very good point, what does it mean? i tell you what, this cartoon seems to have an idea! that is not the queen, that is how the dup travel these days... (i) the golden carriage that the queen were supposed to be in, but the haste with which this election was called, there was not enough time to organise all the pomp and ceremony. the dup negotiations, don't seem to be going as well as everyone thought
10:51 pm
they were, would be, that is at least on the conservative side, but likely to come to some kind of agreement eventually. that is a story we picked up tomorrow, largely overshadowed by the pomp and circumstance today and brexit but, again, very good line from the telegraph, citing stories that there may be £2 billion of investment in northern ireland as the price for joining... nota northern ireland as the price for joining... not a coalition but supporting the government on the budget and other major issues. what we are seeing here is an agreement that were supposed to happen last week and before the queen's speech, the dup is good at not many things but one thing they are good at is negotiating, they are going to wait until the last possible moment and get their pound of flesh out the government on this one. again, on top of the lords, the scottish parliament, so many hurdles thrown in front of this government right now, and i think tomorrow, we will have picking up the story much closer, at some point, somebody has
10:52 pm
to call an end to this. we thought the queen's speech was the end point, the deadline, that has passed! there is a vote on thursday when they have devoted for the queen's speech. in theory they will have that in place, this agreement, by then, frankly, we may not even haveit by then, frankly, we may not even have it then, because there is an agreement which is separate from the budget. it has gotten slightly ridiculous. bottom line, as far as the dup is concerned, they want as much money as they can for their pa rt much money as they can for their part of the united kingdom. i interviewed the head of a think tank for the north of england today. he said, i'm seeing nicola sturgeon have discussions over money for scotland. sadiq khan... the dup... northern power house, where has it gone? where is the possible dividend out of all this england? i wonder
10:53 pm
whether that further down the road will be a bone of contention that could jump will be a bone of contention that couldjump up to will be a bone of contention that could jump up to bite theresa may. the northern powerhouse minister stepped down, recently, it is a valid question, any money that goes, if they decide, and indeed they may decide to call the bluff of the dup. the dup are not going to vote against us, they are wondering, and other people are thinking, we need some kind of agreement to have the security. what the dup said, a strong northern ireland, they said, the whole time, looking forward to the whole time, looking forward to the new olympic sized pool, motorways and all this money. —— the whole town. laughter gotland and wales will benefit if cash goes to northern ireland but what about england ? cash goes to northern ireland but what about england? very quickly, front page of the telegraph, the queen's hat, looking like an eu flag, is she a remainder? according
10:54 pm
to the sun she is not, as an avid twitter user, this was great fun. head liberal in the european parliament, he tweeted this out, glad to see at least one brit still loves the eu. look at it, you have got to imagine she was doing this consciously, looks like an eu flag, cannot imagine she put that on and did not think that... cannot imagine she put that on and did not think that. .. there is only six, it should be 12. back to the guardian, one towel, 16 failed inspections by the council, 79 died... the very latest on what happened at grenfell tower in north london, dreadful tragedy. west london. i was in the area yesterday, does not really quite... i don't live far from it, does not really quite... i don't live farfrom it, and it... does not really sink in until you walk up the street and you see missing posters plastered everywhere. this is the latest. the guardian are saying they we re latest. the guardian are saying they were told by the council, that the
10:55 pm
last inspection, two inspections, during the refurbishment project. last 2000 16. they did not seem to spot that the building had been clad with this material, now questions over the height of the building, this material was not supposed to be on buildings above a certain height, ten metres. i don't know, i was speaking to somebody in scotland, the building control standards between england and wales and scotla nd between england and wales and scotland are different. self policed, stricter, i'm not sure. we will hear more and more of this coming out. the one thatjumped out, the fifth or sixth paragraph, the architects propose fire retardant cladding, it was turned down. we have heard this time and again. i think that was a more interesting revelation than the fact it failed some inspections. that cladding is going to become the story coming forward. we have the story already,
10:56 pm
the slightly more expensive cladding, they chose not to use it. finally, very briefly, financial times, your paper, a bit of a barney at the bank of england over interest rates. what is most annoying to mark carney is exactly what andrew haldane will say. the chief economist says, we need to raise rates, 24 hours after mark carney said we did not. it is a big deal, inflation is at a long—term high. it has gone up because the pound has gone down. for our readers, this is pretty coarse stuff. notjust for your readers, for everyone, indeed. thank you very much forjoining us. you can see all the front pages of
10:57 pm
all the newspapers online, the bbc news website, therefore you, seven days a week. if you miss the programme in the evening, watch it on my player. from all of us, thank you for watching and goodbye. good evening. no doubt about it, the heatwave has reached its peak. what a peak it was, hottestjune day since 1976, it came on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, temperatures got up to 34.5 degrees, at heathrow, very close to 35, the heat was widespread across many southern and central areas, even northern part of the country saw hot weather through the day. some showers and storms across parts of wales and more across western areas. those showers and storms have become more widespread through the evening, more to come, once they
10:58 pm
clear away, back to normal, essentially, fresher weather, some cloud, some rain, some dry conditions and sunshine at times. as we go through tonight, showers and storms that have developed across the northern half of the country will clear away into the north sea, turning cloudy, misty and murky for western coastal areas, temperatures dipping away a little lower than they have in western parts, still quite a warm and uncomfortable night in the south—east. tomorrow, showers and thunderstorms, some drifting across south—eastern areas, some breaking out through the afternoon. quite hit and miss, tending to clear away by the end of the day. away from the storms, dry weather, spells and sunshine, more cloud than we have had recently. cooler, fresher feel, mid 20s rather than mid—30s. thursday night, rain pushing in across northern ireland and western scotland, this is the start of a change to not only fresher
10:59 pm
conditions but much more unsettled conditions, areas of low pressure and frontal systems pushing in from the west. one weather front sinking south and east during friday, band of rain tending to break apart. some brightness, brighter skies developing later, across northern and north—western part, temperatures 18 in the west, maybe 25 in london. into saturday, we are left with a westerly wind, quite a fresh feeling wind, strong wind, 13 degrees in glasgow, 23 is the high in london. we stick with that fresher feel into sunday as well. much cooler for the weekend, quite breezy at times, a mix of sunshine and showers. this is bbc news. i am clive myrie. the our top stories: it was a
11:00 pm
queen's speech with a difference. dressed down and with key pledges from the conservative manifesto missing, the one obvious ingredient was brexit. my ministers are committed to working with parliament in the devolved administration to build the widest possible consensus on the country's future a european union. mps have been debating the speech in the commons. the prime minister said her government could tackle the challenges the country faces a moala jeremy corbyn says the government is in chaos. police have said two men
