photos, which, it's papers. yes. photos, which, it's almost as if theresa may's shaking hands with arlene foster and arlene foster is the dominant character in the picture on the front of the i. it does but theresa may didn't sign the document herself, she didn't lower herself to that. this is what the dup is good at. they radically underestimated them, they thought, well, they have ten mps. a pushover. yes. on the friday after it turned out we had a hung parliament they thought they would get the deal quickly. i was writing about it at the time and everything was frantically changing and it has been 18 days now. this is what the dup has done for many years. they are good at letting negotiations go down to the wire because they know that squeezes out more of what they want. and actually they have an awful lot of what they want. the headline is the 1 of what they want. the headline is the1 billion figure but of what they want. the headline is the 1 billion figure but there of what they want. the headline is the1 billion figure but there is actually so much more. various
10:46 pm
things about the triple—lock, on pensions, theresa may already committed it wouldn't happen for the next two years but now it is pushed back. they have a veto on government legislation effectively because they will see anything before it goes to parliament, so on legislation. they actually have a huge amount here for what seems like quite small. yes, ten mps, it's an extraordinary price to pay. from an outside perspective is this not classic pork barrel politics and will there be a backlash against theresa may? some of her critics already say she has bought each of the ten mps for 100 million apiece. she has bought her own career surviving. in the short—term but these are social conservatives against gay rights and abortion, precisely the people corbyn has been appealing to re ce ntly corbyn has been appealing to recently and will then not the long—term political consequences for this decision? yes, i think so and even the dup knows that theresa may

is toxic, so that's why they have tried to squeeze so much so it isn't so tried to squeeze so much so it isn't so bloody body anyway. the tory board the dup votes with us and they expect lots of motorways and things. the telegraph says it is just the start. in other words, they could come back for more, if there is some critical vote, they might say we are not sure we can support you on this any longer, they might be a bit of desperate... you called it pork barrel politics, the us phrase, which i think the welsh first minister called it a bung. we had it in the 70s when the labour government tried to survive and it was paying for electricity cable to be run under the north sea to connect northern ireland with the mainland of the rest of britain. on that basis presumably there is a risk in the rest of the uk to say, hang ona risk in the rest of the uk to say, hang on a minute, where's our money? your broadband will get faster in
10:48 pm
northern ireland, you will get new motorways and better hospitals and and wales, maybe even london complaining the money is being given away. in terms of the power-sharing, because there is so much money at sta ke, because there is so much money at stake, sinn fein may come back to this table, they already don't have a seat at westminster because they choose not to take up their seats. think what they could have extracted to get in a labour dermot drummy corbyn government if they mps took their seats. what about the language used? i think the daily mirror talks about crackpots, they have their word bungs, some people call it a bribe, comfortable with the way this was written up? some people think crackpot is offensive. was written up? some people think crackpot is offensivelj was written up? some people think crackpot is offensive. i was quite surprised to see that word but there is plenty to criticise about the dup's policies, to put it bluntly. the dup did not turn to typical nationalist ideology in making the deal, they went away from bowler hats and parades and stuck to the nitty—gritty of economics and money so nitty—gritty of economics and money so in nitty—gritty of economics and money soina
10:49 pm
nitty—gritty of economics and money so in a way they were quite astute. they played their hand well. they we re they played their hand well. they were not crackpots at all. let's moved down to the telegraph, to the column on the right hand of the front page, towerfire column on the right hand of the front page, tower fire tests ignore combustible instillation. what do you make of this, dan? united states builds a lot more high—rises than britain does, bigger population and a very urbanised country, lots of big cities. how shocked were people by this fire when they saw the pictures? i noticed the new york times has a picture of grenfell again in the middle of it. the charred inferno of grenfell tower on a human level was absolutely shocking regardless of your nationality. from the american perspective what was also shocking was the laxness of the regulatory framework in this country. in the us if you have a building that is higher than if you have a building that is higherthana if you have a building that is higher than a fireman's the ladder, two stories, there is mandatory testing for the cladding and no flammable padding of the type used
10:50 pm
in grenfell has ever passed that test. people in the us context were quite surprised at the regulatory syste m quite surprised at the regulatory system here at and that it was so lax and the cost—cutting seems to have been prioritised over human lives and safety. what do you make of this story about the doubts of the whole testing process, whether before or now? even the minister said today it is taken too long for the testing to go under way. they should be able to do 100 a day and so should be able to do 100 a day and so far they only have 75 and all 75 have failed the tests. they would start with the ones, it is appalling, but they start with the ones that seem most likely to fail. yes, sure. there is also a story in the ft tomorrow saying the us engineering group which makes the cladding panels is no longer selling the flammable version for high—rises. the flammable version for high-rises. they announced today they are halting global sales. that seems obviously a good thing but clearly too late. better late than
10:51 pm
never, i guess. metro, clearly too late. better late than never, iguess. metro, ura clearly too late. better late than never, i guess. metro, ura must show id papers. —— eu. ithought never, i guess. metro, ura must show id papers. —— eu. i thought we had killed off the idea of identity cards in the uk but for some it might be coming back. this is a home office policy paper, i think. it is all very provisional. elsewhere they are saying this might mean identity cards but it mightjust mean a central database cards but it mightjust mean a central data base and it cards but it mightjust mean a central database and it isn't actually clear yet which of those it means. but actually there is an awful lot that this policy document suggests. eu nationals could potentially be losing. it isn't clear whether they will be allowed to vote in local elections which obviously they can at the moment, yet they would be paying tax. sounds unlikely if the eu court ofjustice will be upholding this. when you
10:52 pm
look at this and look at the offer coming from britain, all right, a bit late again, but people saying there is room for compromise. there is goodwill on this question. from what i hear from people in brussels they are saying thank you so much that you will not deport us, we appreciate that, generous negotiating position. the europeans are saying there is not enough clarity and it is too little too late. there was a tweet that said it was not ambitious enough and not enough clarity. i think we risk, with all these people who are looking at it on a purely economic basis, we are going to lose the people we want to hold onto most and thatis people we want to hold onto most and that is mad. is this not alan duncan because there are lots of parts of the country where there are not many eu nationals working and bringing high skilled jobs and experience to london. it is where the media is based in london. they are working in farms. without the seasonal workers from bulgaria and other eastern
10:53 pm
european countries. and any rational arrangement we could continue to invite people to work for short periods of time for specific things like that. but if you don't have free movement of people then how can you have eastern european is coming in? people who voted leave who are in the agricultural sector say they regret it because they may not have eastern european is to employ to pick their goods. there was a man who employed 5000 eu nationals. and he voted for leave. let's pop inside the daily express, nothing exciting us on the daily express, nothing exciting us on the front cover but we were interested by this. nice to see a picture of donald trump smiling since becoming president. he has a reason to smile today. the supreme court decided to hear the case of his travel ban which was a ban against people from six majority muslim countries, somalia, sudan, syria, iran etc, owing to the united states. donald trump declared victory because the supreme court has decided to hear the case and to
10:54 pm
stay pa rt of has decided to hear the case and to stay part of the original order, meaning that if you try and go to the us you have to serve dumb show some kind of bona fides link, such asa some kind of bona fides link, such as a job or some kind of bona fides link, such asajob ora some kind of bona fides link, such as a job or a parent who is there for a student visa. this will test the limits of the executive order in the limits of the executive order in the united states and it remains to be seen whether he will be able to claim victory. u-turn and general described it as a triumph for the separation of powers. since trump entered the presidency the court syste m entered the presidency the court system has been raining him in and there were two court decisions against the travel ban already. this isa against the travel ban already. this is a test case and so far the american system has shown that one man cannot overcome the division between different parts of government. the constitution works. we will see, let's hope so. let's look finally at the front of the telegraph. i don't think we can pick this up, but i am going to put it there. that's the cartoon. i don't think we can quite so clearly see
10:55 pm
from the front of the telegraph, there is a better picture on the front of the times, just how enormous hms elizabeth is. front of the times, just how enormous hms elizabeth ism front of the times, just how enormous hms elizabeth is. it is enormous. the cartoon is making a connection between this enormous new naval vessel and the dup— tory deal. explain. his big gift is tying together two big stories of the day ina way together two big stories of the day in a way you have not thought of and he has done it with aplomb here. it is two people standing on this enormous ship saying, this is an very impressive, thing how many dup mps we could have brought with the money. because as we know1 million gets ten of them. we can see on the front of the times, this really gets the scale of this ship. it is a big ship, wherever you look at it but it is next to the bridge there and suddenly you think that is not a ship, that is a small city afloat.
10:56 pm
it's an amazing site. there were lots of grumbles in the military thinking we are getting this big ship and there isn't much money for anyone else or any of the small boats. what a shame! for any cartoonist complaining about the fa ct cartoonist complaining about the fact that matt gets on all the time it's because he's on the front of the paper, get your edited to put you on the front paper and you will make it onto tomorrow's papers. thank you forjoining us. we have rattled through a lot. thank you for your company. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. my my thanks to rosamond and dan. i will be back at the top of the hour. good evening. sunshine for some of us today but rain is on its way. i
10:57 pm
hope you managed to make the most of it. eastern england saw the best in the breaks of cloud and sunshine coming through. lovely picture from suffolk earlier today. the crowd de macleod arrived like a blanket from the west as you can see from cambridgeshire and we started to see rain through northern ireland, the isle of man and gradually moving into south—west scotland. that will continue overnight tonight. there will be heavier pulses from time to time. some rain to come for pretty much all of us at some point in the next 2a hours. that rain will be heavy as we move through the central belt of scotland, not quite reaching the far north—east of scotland. it will stay on the chilly side, some bits and pieces of showery rain through north wales and the midlands, further south it stays quite mild, 15 or 16 degrees first thing. we start tomorrow with cloudy skies but a largely dry start, the heaviest rain in the central belt of scotla nd heaviest rain in the central belt of scotland for the early morning rush
10:58 pm
hour, not particularly pleasant. the rain gradually encroaches up to the northern isles and behind it into northern wales, heavier pulses close to the scottish borders and north—west england, a few isolated showers for the midlands down into the south—east, but predominantly a dry and warm and almost humid start to the day. those temperatures will continue to climb. as we go into the afternoon that rain shifts north, which could trigger some sharp thundery downpours for northern ireland and a pulse of thundery showers moving up through the south—east of england towards lincolnshire by the afternoon. still quite warm here, 22, and much fresher feel further north as you can see. low—pressure stays with us tuesday into wednesday. there will be some wet weather quite considerably across england and wales overnight, tuesday into wednesday. so wednesday starts off pretty wet as you can see. heavy rain in eastern areas, the far north of scotla nd
10:59 pm
rain in eastern areas, the far north of scotland escapes the worst of it and stays dry but the north—easterly breeze will feel fresh eye exposed coasts with just 12 or 13 degrees. the week ahead on subtle, something we have not seen for quite some time, some spells of rain and certainly it will turn cooler. this is bbc news. i'm shaun ley. the headlines at 11:00 — the dup agrees to support theresa may's minority conservative government — northern ireland will get an extra one billion pounds of investment over two years. today we have reached an outcome that is good for the united kingdom, good for northern ireland and allows our nation to move forward to tackle the challenges ahead. the number of high—rise buildings failing fire safety tests rises to 75, and in camden there are new concerns about fire doors. theresa may tells mps she wants to give the three million eu nationals living in britain — the same status as uk citizens after brexit. tonight after granville, we reveal
11:00 pm
the failures at heart of the very system that is supposed to
