long time because the border, for a long time during the troubles, was such a difficult place to cross. it was the site of many atrocities. it was where a lot of people lost their lives, but it was also symbolic of lots of things. on the one hand, there will be lots of people in northern ireland who will not want a return to a hard border and would like this kind of solution. on the other side, where we are talking about northern ireland and talk about northern ireland and talk about the other community, there will be people who look at this and say, we are as british as theresa may and this is imperilling our british identity. it is a big problem. but you can understand why dublin might think that a deal with this at sea somehow is for some people a possible solution. you can certainly see their perspective on getting away from a hard border in northern ireland. but you can also see how the government has been taken aback by this. there is a
source taken aback by this. there is a source from whitehall here saying, we are being as positive as we can, but their attitude has hardened, which signifies that they are a bit shocked by this and not sure where to take it. in part, this was supposed to be project fear. it was supposed to be project fear. it was supposed to be something that was never going to happen. david cameron mentioned it in prime minister's questions about ten days before the vote. it was supposed to be one of the last gasps, saying we can't possibly do this, it would lead to dreadful things. when he suggested that the border could be in the sea, i have relatives from the nationalist community who would not particularly be that obsessed with their british identity. they were all voting to stay in the eu, and they were so annoyed that david cameron would even suggest this and
would treat them differently than people in his oxfordshire constituency that they thought about voting no just to spite him. constituency that they thought about voting nojust to spite him. freedom of movement to continue after brexit so of movement to continue after brexit so eu citizens will still have the right to work in britain? yes, this isa right to work in britain? yes, this is a curious one because earlier today the immigration minister was saying freedom of movement was going to end in 2019, and now it is not. there is a lovely line here that there will be a transitional period, which we had expected, because even michael gove suggested that that would happen. but this source says the transitional period may look like a similar arrangement to free movement. so the government has not quite made up its mind here. it knows that it can't just stop free movement with a cliff edge, but they haven't worked out how to frame the
arrangement after brexit. kate, this is to try to reassure businesses which rely on seasonal workers and workers from outside britain. but at the same time, it risks annoying tory brexiteer mps, one of whom is quoted here as saying we can'tjust have the same thing, called something different. he says people voted to take control and this would not be taken control. staying with the daily telegraph, britain left reliant on allies to track russian buy crap. why can't we do it ourselves? in part because we got rid of a lot of maritime aircraft —— britain left reliant on allies to track russian spy craft. it is mainly because the russians are buzzing us quite a lot. that is the phrase for them. they are bringing over their spy planes and trying to
destabilise us by hanging around the area. let's move onto your paper, the metro. grenfell — the net closes in. this is the met updating survivors. yes, they have been leading victims and families know they have reasonable grounds to suspect both the kensington and chelsea council and it and organisation which deals with the council flats. they have reasonable grounds to suspect them of corporate manslaughter, so they are going to interview both. they will formally question representatives from both and we could see charges following oi'i and we could see charges following on from that. i don't think there is much optimism yet that people are actually going to be brought to account over this. david lammy has been making the point that this is punishable by a fine, but it is the start of something. it is not
individuals, though, it is clearly about the organisation rather than a person. it is, and david lammy has called for them to investigate a different type of manslaughter which would not be punishable by a fine, but could be punishable by a prison term. a long way to go. let's look at the #, page two — jails are an all—out scandal. 71 likes lego by mistake. 20 guards beaten every day. the sheer number of violent and self—harm is also going up. when you speak to the prison officers association, they say they are not surprised, because they don't have enough staff. that has been a consistent line from them for a long time now. francis cook from the howard league for penal reform is talking about chronic overcrowding in these jails, and the newjustice overcrowding in these jails, and the new justice secretary overcrowding in these jails, and the newjustice secretary david lidington has admitted that prisons
are not yet safe or secure. the prisoners to be allowed to slip into such a state is quite something. —— for prisoners to have been allowed to slip into such a state. the government has promised that there will be more as an officers, but it is whether you can attract people into a career that is inherently dangerous? yes, and pay seems to be an issue as well. the government are looking at that. the figures are astonishing. there were 15 prison escapes last year, bar and 73 people we re escapes last year, bar and 73 people were let out by accident, which seems to suggest that rather than planning an elaborate escape, you should perhaps hope that they put down nine months instead of nine yea rs, down nine months instead of nine years, as happened in one case, which allowed a man to go free. yes, the number of people being by mistake is at an all—time high. let's go back to the times. jeff bezos, the founder of amazon, is
briefly the world's richest man. why only briefly? because amazon shares we re only briefly? because amazon shares were not quite as good as expected. they went up in the day and then came back down. he had just gone ahead of bill gates for about six hours. but now he has slumped to $89.8 billion. i wouldn't have even noticed. you could ask what more vindication this man needs than $90 billion in the bank, but he did spend an awfully long time building his business. from his garage. for yea rs, his business. from his garage. for years, people said, when is amazon going to make any money? when is this company finally going to turn it around? and hejust kept this company finally going to turn it around? and he just kept holding his nerve. it is a real story of one
man's singular ability to continue holding his nerve. fair play to him. his has certainly done that, and he might still head to head. the ft said he is tussling with bill gates for the richest title. they could arm wrestle. well, they both live in seattle. a sort of white collar boxing. now, the ft datawatch column. this shows us the share of women who have been mansplained to buy men at different times. this is where men patronisingly explain a subject to women. does this happen to you, kate? does it? i love this story. we have all been there. but
they break it down into when it happens. people who have followed this phrase and where it came from know that it came from a social event, so it is perhaps not surprising that that is top of the list as to where it happens. but second most often is from your husband and partner.|j second most often is from your husband and partner. i am sure you never do that, joel. i get into trouble if i attempt it.|j never do that, joel. i get into trouble ifi attempt it. i wonder why(!), but if you do accidentally slip into mansplaining, what is the come # normally being told off by my mum 01’ my come # normally being told off by my mum or my wife. how do you deal with it, kate?|j deal how do you deal with it, kate?” deal with it the way the original innovator of the phrase does, which
is badly. i sit there and say things like, yes, i know that. iam is badly. i sit there and say things like, yes, i know that. i am a political journalist. like, yes, i know that. i am a politicaljournalist. or, ithink you will find i read that story. the problem is that quite often, people canjust be problem is that quite often, people can just be oblivious and theyjust continue because they don't want to listen. not life's listeners. find a raised eyebrow is all you need. practise it. quickly, moderate drinking reduces danger of diabetes. how moderate is moderate, though? it isa how moderate is moderate, though? it is a rather subjective term. men who drink14 is a rather subjective term. men who drink 14 units is a rather subjective term. men who drink14 unitsa is a rather subjective term. men who drink 14 units a week were found to have a lower risk of diabetes, and women who had nine units a week had a 58% lower risk. 50 pretty moderate. but before you raise a glass, you might get alcoholic hepatitis, so it is not all good
news. and if you believe, like graham norton does, that he doesn't understand how people don't finish a bottle of wine because how do they know when it is time to go to bed, this is not the story for you. no. there are so many other reasons not to drink, but that is one of the good reasons to do so. that's it for the papers tonight. thank you, joel taylor and kate devlin. goodbye. good evening. there's something wrong with the weather at the moment. today was a mixture of sunshine and heavy april showers and we have more showers this evening and overnight. the heavy ones in the south—east should ease away, but we'll keep them going in the west and particularly further north across northern ireland, scotland and northern england. the showers could be heavy enough to give a rumble or two of thunder. some clearer spells overnight. perhaps not many showers across much of england and wales on friday morning.
some decent sunshine before the cloud increases from the south—west. eventually, we'll see some rain coming across england and wales. for most of the day, for the cricket at the oval, it may well be dry. we're not expecting any interruptions to play until the evening session. but we will have showers further north. they will keep going all day across scotland and northern ireland, and they could be heavy and blustery. there will be some sunshine between those showers before the cloud thickens up from the south—west and by mid to late afternoon, we have outbreaks of rain coming into wales, across the south—west of england and by the evening pushing towards the south—east. the highs will be similar to today's, nothing particularly great for the time of year. the wet weather will push across england and wales quickly during the evening. the rain could be heavy over some of the western hills and does not clear away from the south—east corner. in the north—west, showers will be close to that area of low pressure,
which will be a dominant feature of the next few days. around the low pressure system, there will be pulses of rain. the next area of rain will pep up again later in the day and it will turn very wet in the evening. otherwise, a good slice of sunshine and dry weather before we go back into those showers, some of them heavy again across scotland and also in northern ireland, where temperatures are disappointing. the wet weather develops through the evening and scoots away overnight, but we still have lots of showers on sunday, especially towards the west, where they're likely to be heavy and thundery. so rather cool this weekend and there will be strong winds as well. sunshine at times, but showers and longer spells of rain as well. this is bbc news. the headlines at 11pm: the human tragedy in yemen.
the country ravaged by war, where one person every hour is also dying from cholera. police investigating the grenfell tower fire say there are grounds to suspect that corporate manslaughter may have been committed. the government moves to reassure business that there'll be no sudden cut off of eu workers after brexit. on newsnight, we speak to the immigration minister and the shadow home secretary about the deep cracks over brexit at the very top of of the government. and the opposition. and a special report from caracas. is venezuela sliding into civil war?
