10:45 pm
bringing us tomorrow. with me are tim stanley, lead writer at the daily telegraph, and jessica elgot, political correspondent at the guardian. tomorrow's front pages starting with. welcome to you both. the front pages... we're not doing them, we are so pages... we're not doing them, we are so short a time we're going straight on. the metro is where we begin. squeaky bum time. that takes hand—picking. prime minister clings to power implying it was a bit nip and tuck from theresa may today because of her lack of majority. i'm impressed by this because it managed to combine two stories in one. one story is the purchasing of dup support so the government giving £33 per taxpayer in order to get the support they need in order to get the queen's speech voted through which happened today by a margin of 223 -- 323-309. which happened today by a margin of 223 —— 323—309. essentially that is
10:46 pm
the story, they have paid off the dup and because they have support they now have a agenda. but it has exposed how things are going was backin exposed how things are going was back in the metro says theresa may squeaked through back in the metro says theresa may squea ked through the back in the metro says theresa may squeaked through the speech and the nature is everyone will be from now on. this is the best it gets for theresa may. this is all of the conservative mp votes, no rebels and all of the dup members. every vote will be this close. these are the types of things the dup said yes we will supported that they cannot be sure if they get around to anything as? it covers finance, security, a confidence motion, brexit legislation so the very basic start of the daily life of the government. that could continue but other things could be disagreed upon and we should listen to save the dup has forced a u—turn on things like means testing, the winter fuel allowance
10:47 pm
and the triple lock and pensions. and of course as we will discuss with the abortion amendment, the price has already shot up a little bit because the government has caved on one other aspect. why don't we talk about that? abortion concession had soft tory revolt on the queen ‘s speech, this is an amendment tabled by the labour mp stella crecy. normally amendments like this on specific issues usually fall by the wayside and i get support there was something about this that really caught the attention of mps. something about this that really caught the attention of mp5. i think it is because women in northern ireland if they come over here for an abortion they have to pay for it even though the uk taxpayers pay for the nhs but because it is so restricted in northern ireland most of them will travel over here if they want to have a termination. most mps, most tory mps said they had no idea this was the case. it
10:48 pm
seemed like a really strange anomaly. it is bizarre they didn't know because there are certain things about northern ireland which set it very much a part in legislative terms for the rest of the uk. but the key thing they didn't know is if they came here to have a termination that they wouldn't have won on the nhs and that they would have a charge. when stella crecy put this forward and it isa stella crecy put this forward and it is a bit of political gameplaying with baiting the government to see if they would do this if they are in a deal with the dup, love to talk to the mac 40 mp5 might have abstained or at the very least expressed concerns to the whip about the issue. the government seemed to decide that they have two act in a policy which has been the case for decades in the course of the morning. with cross-party support. you are absolutely right. abortion remains devolved when it comes to northern ireland and there was a ruling by the belfast court of appeal today that it is not a
10:49 pm
judicial issue, it is a political issue to be decided by the stormont assembly. this is why i think the amendment was so clever. she identified the one aspect of the northern ireland arrangements on abortion which the commons could legitimately have a say on. that is theissueif legitimately have a say on. that is the issue if you can't have an abortion within northern ireland except for cases of rape and help, if you cannot have on their... it's not even for rape or incest. it is if the mother's health or well—being is at risk. 0k and a medical emergency. if you cannot have one in northern ireland than he pays for it in england? that legitimately was within the purview of the commons discussion, ian paisley junior said that on wednesday in a debate about the queen's speech. he said this is something england can do something
10:50 pm
about so by seizing upon that one bit, she identified the thing the commons could legitimately discuss. there was support and it didn't end up there was support and it didn't end up getting voted on, she withdrew it. so she probably managed to identify the one thing that you could actually do through the commons. movie: looking at the express which is a somewhat perplexing headline. may gets big e exits boost. how? when i first saw this i couldn't understand what the story was about and then i read it and this was about an amendment which will supported by good chunk of labour mps against the advice of their own party whips which was to keep britain in the single market. the way the express have done this is to say that this motion was rejected by thumping 322 votes — one original one which was betrayed as a
10:51 pm
defeat for labour but it was a back table amendments. jeremy corbyn whipped the majority of his mps to vote to abstain on the amendment so it isa vote to abstain on the amendment so it is a bit ofa vote to abstain on the amendment so it is a bit of a technical way of betraying it. it happily into the next headline which we understand a bit more which is on page two of the sun. regular trio corbinned. bit more which is on page two of the sun. regulartrio corbinned. some bit more which is on page two of the sun. regular trio corbinned. some of the mps have voted to stay in the single market lost their place on the labour front bench. corbin sacked three and two may have resigned. one definitely reside. this is what is really fascinating. everyone is talking about the election that didn't go the way people expected. i have been away for a few weeks and it seems like labour won the election. the government is on the back foot so that outcome is unexpected that the
10:52 pm
other one that other people are talking about is that the labour front bench has reconciled itself to brexit and not just to front bench has reconciled itself to brexit and notjust to brexit front bench has reconciled itself to brexit and not just to brexit to leaving the single market. so we're now ina leaving the single market. so we're now in a position wherejeremy corbyn is whipping his people to keep them on side of leaving the single market, sacking people who disagree with that and of course the left and much of the labour party are cheering him on. it is true the election did not produced a hard brexit tory led government that everybody expected that would have this massive majority. true. but the election result has empowered jeremy corbyn which means you have the labour party which is essentially committed to a kind of hard brexit. and will thereby disappoint a lot of the labour members who voted remain? it is striking when you compare the glastonbury 2016 wire it was the time of the referendum and many people are customary weighted in
10:53 pm
their tents for the result and this year the great reception thatjeremy corbyn got and it feels like there is quite a disconnect from that young demographic who are mostly pro—remain and their feelings about jeremy corbyn because as tim just said the basically has rubber—stamped hard brexit. said the basically has rubber-stamped hard brexit. left, right and centre there are divisions where you look. the times. keep the cost of cladding style tower experts told. this is the times investigation revealing council pressure over the cost of the refit. we must save the bbc has not seen these e—mails and we will tell you at the moment for the council have said in response. because of obvious legal implications of this i'm going to stick very precisely to the text. it describes this in minutes of meetings, price outlets and other correspondence which focuses on cost—cutting before the refurb is.
10:54 pm
which has been linked to the fire which seven people tragically died in. one example. one e—mail lists three options for the reduction of costs in cladding intended to encase the building. for instance the use of aluminium panels instead of sink which could mean a saving of 293,000 pounds. of course zinc panels would be noncombustible but the aluminium cladding which was eventually used had a flammable core. let's tell you what the council said. they have said that the cabinet of the council and the person the council are leading, rock fielding melon, are... based on the advice received from the managing company which was not only response will for delivering the project but ensuring the bill
10:55 pm
james met the current regulations. —— building. they are asking for a justification in the increase of the budget which would have been made in the spirit of ensuring public funds whilst being poorly managed and could be justified. whilst being poorly managed and could bejustified. safety would not have been compared my son are quite clear that they allowed the right amount of expenditure. if you look at the very beginning of the time story it says in that they received, the records show little evidence thatis the records show little evidence that is clearly something the council has contested in the statement that safety concerns would have been part of the decision—making process. i don't know if we can move on, a story going on throughout the whole of the day about a public meeting which should have held the night in kensington and chelsea council. the
10:56 pm
daily telegraph briefly, a private meeting and the guardian and other media organisations got a court order to allow reporters into the meeting. yes during the course of the day that was a high court ruling that says journalist should be allowed into this, what was supposed to bea allowed into this, what was supposed to be a public meeting which was changed to be private at the council. and when the leader of the council. and when the leader of the council realised at the start of the meeting that there were journalists he had another meeting to take place. he did seem to understand they were there in the first place. and finally some levity if you don't mind. the daily express, not in the house, mps can go tireless. the common speaker sweeping away a custom for 100 years, should men have to wear a tie? i have been meditating upon the sordo. on the one hand the wearing a retired means you have two the business, the extra
10:57 pm
effort to look presentable means your mind is focused. on the other hand some people wear such ludicrous and absurd tyres that they themselves undermine the institution. yes or no. i like the type 94 wearing one. don't ever turn up type 94 wearing one. don't ever turn up here without wearing one that is it for the papers tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — 7 days a week at bbc dot co uk forward slash papers — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you jessica and tim. headlines coming up for you at the top of the hour. goodbye. hello and good evening, i've been saying gene has been a crazy month that we have quite literally gone to extremes. earlier in the month last week of course we had all of the heat, the hottestjune day the 41 yea rs heat, the hottestjune day the 41 years and this week it has been all about the rain come at the wettest june on record in edinburgh and in fife. this picture was taken in

the headlines at 11pm: the judge who'll lead the public inquiry into the grenfell tower fire visits the site as local people express their fears. whether he will get to the bottom of who was responsible for causing the fire in the first place is a different matter, and that's the one that's really concerning residents at present. the ayes have it. unlock! by a majority of 14, the commons approves the queen's speech, and two years of the government's legislative plans. we report from the front line in mosul, the iraqi city where the global caliphate was declared three years ago. and coming up on newsnight: on the 20th anniversary of the handover, we'll hear from the last british governor of hong kong, chris patten. he calls the chinese ambassador to britain
