10:45 pm
the times claims the prime minister is planning to abandon a manifesto pledge to cut the number of mps. and the daily mail goes with the government proposals to restrict the number of low skilled workers allowed into the uk after brexit and the guardian has pictures of the lea ked the guardian has pictures of the leaked document containing the proposals. we will start with that. this has been leaked by... who knows! not by someone... and who benefits? and after a few weeks of not getting anywhere with brexit, or making progress on the tiniest technical details. this is a bit of a fillip to those who voted brexit. this is back—to—school, the prime
10:46 pm
minister is revving up for a major speech on the exit. we don't know when it will be, probably before the tory party conference in the first week of october. it makes the negotiations more difficult on the one hand because it will upset the eu side is even during the transition period for two years after march 2019, even in that time the clamps will come down and low skilled workers will not be able to come to the uk and there will be freedom of movement being curtailed. on the other hand it will please some restive tory mps who want brexit, some labour mps who want it despite the position of their front bench and it will do something to say that even though we have these problems with the eu, we are getting on with it and there is a major after brexit legislation coming in during the autumn and we are determined to get it through

parliament. that is what it feels like to most observers i would suggest. and i think it also shows that the tories or certainly some of them think that if they are seen to be tough on immigration which they believe was the real root cause behind a lot of people voting to leave, they will be forgiven... for handing over 60 billion? whatever the divorce bill turned out to be. like so many of these papers, this is not clear. some statements from the home office suggest they have not seen it, the guardian said that is already causing disagreement between ministers. we don't know how serious it is. but like so many of these position papers, it raises more questions than it answers about whether it could be made to work and the impact on the economy which people have serious questions about. it onto the financial times, and
10:48 pm
vladimir putin is warning donald trump that military hysteria risks catastrophe. this is a man who has never had military hysteria in his life! this is the so-called brick summit, the big four emerging markets, brazil, russia, india and china, they formed an informal group and there is a summit going on in china and we have had trouble saying that pyongyang, north korea having carried out nuclear tests recently, i think the phrase he used was begging for war. putin has come back saying that trump should not engage in war hysteria. the key point being that of course if there are sanctions by the us against north korea, unless they are unilateral sections, if they are un sanctions, both russia and china are able to sanction them as permanent members
10:49 pm
of the security council. given that it is ata of the security council. given that it is at a bric summit, there is no way that putin would say that unless beijing was on site. and it helps us get into the mindset of the north koreans because putin is saying they would rather eat grass than give up their weapons programme. he knows what it is like to have the west say, you can't do this, and also what it is like to use your military might to force the west to take you seriously and give you a place at the international table. seriously and give you a place at the internationaltable. he seriously and give you a place at the international table. he doesn't like being under sanctions either. he said the sanctions regime has run its course, it is ineffective. exactly. and onto the the i, the archbishop of canterbury makes an extraordinary political intervention. we are quite used in
10:50 pm
the past two archbishop of canterbury having a go at the inequalities of capitalism but i guessed justin welby as not being as outspoken as in the past. he used to bea outspoken as in the past. he used to be a banker. he knows a bit about how the economy works. how unfair society can be! he has been in the trenches. it is good to have someone from the real world in such a high ecclesiastical post. the actually says that britain boka economic model is broken and it no longer functions but he is not proposing an alternative —— britain's economic model. i suspect he wants to make this model work better and that the benefit of economic growth seem to benefit of economic growth seem to be going into profit rather than wages. he has aligned himself with
10:51 pm
the ippr think tank, which has come up the ippr think tank, which has come up with numbers showing that of gdp, the whole economy, 80% was going towards wages in the 1970s and now it is just 73% also another interesting thing, it is notjust the archbishop saying i wish the world was a fairer place, he has actually attacked the tech giants, facebook, google, amazon, saying they are too powerful and that is an important emerging theme in political discourse around the world at the moment. in the past prime ministers would be upset by this sort of thing and i remember margaret thatcher getting very upset by whoever the archbishop was at the time for producing similar sort of quotes. actually this unfairness in the economy is something theresa may as talked about when she first came to downing street so let's see what
10:52 pm
notice she takes. talking about unfairness and pay and money, the bbc is to launch a major review of salaries! five! —— clive... -- clive... we don't need to go any further on this! a major review of salaries. this isn't news, really? we know what happened earlier in the year. careful because your boss, the great tony hall, of course this been a big story over the summer, 96 bbc presenters have been named as earning more than £150,000. the majority of calls were men which led to some concern. white men. a lot of
10:53 pm
the country is thinking they are all massively overpaid for reading out loud for a living but now the bbc has said they want to bring forward measures to address that gender a gap earlier. and of course all organisations with more than 250 staff, i think by early next year, are going to have to published figures on their gender pay gap. the bbc is getting with the programme. or rather everyone else is getting with the bbc because they are way ahead in this field, even though it is pretty awful. not by choice but to their credit are keeping the story on the front pages and we are talking about it. and by launching the review they are raising expectations and something will be done about it. natural selection is reading alzheimer's and asthma out
10:54 pm
of the gene pool, this is on the front page of the daily telegraph. of the gene pool, this is on the front page of the daily telegraphlj just front page of the daily telegraph.” just don't get this story. i bet explain what it is, but apparently natural selection means that alzheimer's and asthma may disappear because men with alzheimer's tend to have fewer children. alzheimer's is normally a disease of the elderly unless i am much mistaken. by and large, you can get early onset. not necessarily at the time when most people are having children will stop i don't quite understand how it is just alzheimer's and asthma that will be up for that we are not clever enough to understand. the research is from the universities of cambridge and columbia. it is a su btle cambridge and columbia. it is a subtle signal, says one of the researchers, but we find genetic evidence that natural selection is happening in modern human populations. the only reason it is not the lead story in the daily
10:55 pm
express... they couldn't understand it either! i have done brexit! does say that it could be bred out of the human species within a few thousand years. in time for the next election! dog walkers told to carry two plastic bags. some don't carry any and that makes me very angry, i have to say! i am a dog walker. we are both dog walkers. and you both carry bags? if we said no on television we would be arrested! and a plastic bag to pick up the poop. all i can say about my dog, jake, thatis all i can say about my dog, jake, that is the third mention you have that is the third mention you have that today. sometimes two plastic bagsis that today. sometimes two plastic bags is not enough! you have not met my bags is not enough! you have not met ! bags is not enough! you have not met my dog! this is canterbury city
10:56 pm
council, the story has emerged that they may find dog walkers £80 if they may find dog walkers £80 if they do not have two plastic bags which led us to speculate, if one is used, do you have to carry it around in its form? just find the nearest bin! that is my message to dog walkers. it has been described as using a sledgehammer to crack a nut! thank you for looking at these stories will stop many thanks to you for watching and don't forget that you can see the front pages of all 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 jake will watch it on iplayer. he might get his own twitter feed like
10:57 pm
this! thank you both and to you for watching. the strongest hurricane ever performed in the atlantic basin is expected to make landfall in the next few hours and it is hurricane irma, a category five storm which has the potential to cause catastrophic damage. we have sustained winds of 100 fight —— 185 mph but potentially gusting up to 220 mph and on top of that significant rain from any huge storm surge expected to push across the leigh wood isles. —— the leeward isles. closer to home we have a westerly flow developing and a fresher feel to the story next few days, losing that humidity and first

thing in the countryside we could have temperatures in single figures. it could be a chilly start but there should be some sunshine to go with it. it is quiet, a dry story for many, a bit more of a breeze in the west facing cost which will drive in some cloud and scattered showers by the middle of the afternoon. not quite as warm, 15—17d, but with some sunshine in south—east areas we could add highs of 20 celsius. through into thursday, the wins will strengthen and we will have an area of low pressure pushing in from the atla ntic of low pressure pushing in from the atlantic bringing heavy rain into scotland, northern ireland and eventually into northern england and north wales. it should stay dry further south but under the cloud and rain in the north it would be pretty disappointing for the first week of september. 12—15d of the best and some of that rain in the north—west is close to the lake district pretty heavy. a similar story in the north of wales but
10:59 pm
central and southern areas might cling onto some prior and sunnier weather and as a result temperatures of 19 or 20 degrees. with the fresh breeze on exposed coasts and it will feel that bit cooler and we are likely to see more rain pushing south through the night across england and wales so by friday there will be wet weather to come and then wrapped around that low pressures showers, some of them heavy with some and thunder and again temperatures pretty subdued for early september. this is bbc news.
11:00 pm
