of rain later to of 15—18d. a bit of rain lately to the middle part of this week, but this weather is looking pretty optimistic into next weekend, as temperatures start to climb into next cover. —— next september. will hello. this is bbc news with martine croxon. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment, first the headlines. police are investigating whether more than one person was involved in the parsons green bomb attack — after an 18—year—old man was arrested in the departure area at the port of dover. it's a very significant arrest. if there are other people responsible it's ourjob to find them and that is part of the reason why we are remaining at critical at the moment. meanwhile, armed police have been searching a house in sunbury—on—thames in connection with the attack. it's the home of an elderly couple who provide foster care. four people have been killed, and a woman and two children are critically ill in hospital,

11:32 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are playwright and new european columnist bonnie greer and editor of politicshome.com kevin schofield. tomorrow's front pages, starting with. .. the observer leads on the news that an eighteen—year—old man is being questioned by counter—terrorism police in connection with the parsons green attack. the mail on sunday reports that theresa may's allies have accused boris johnson of treachery after he staged an open revolt over her plans for a ‘soft‘ brexit. the sunday telegraph claims that cabinet ministers, michael gove and priti patel have thrown their weight behind the foreign secretary's vision for brexit. the sunday times says the chancellor is considering slashing the annual tuition fee universities can charge to £7,500, saving every student at least £5,000 on the cost of a degree. the sunday express leads on the news that armed police raided a home owned by an elderly couple who've fostered hundreds of children — hours after arresting a teenager in connection with the parsons green bombing. the sunday mirror also covers the story. the aftermath of the parsons
11:33 pm
green bombing. here it is in the 0bserver. police search house owes teenager held. hints that they are keeping in mind that there could be other people involved beside the 18—year—old. other people involved beside the 18-year-old. yes. it seems that right now it is centred around a family home of a couple who foster young children, young people, refugees. the police are looking at that, they were at dover today. they got a suspect. so they seem to have a pretty good picture of who they are looking at and what they are going to do their. they are keeping an open mind and it is impressive to see the shape that they have made already of this situation. and the
11:34 pm
speed... there is clearly a lot of concern that there could be other people involved in this incident as well as the person who has been arrested. there could potentially be, hopefully not, but potentially be, hopefully not, but potentially be other attacks planned which is why the threat level has been raised to critical and we have troops on the streets. it is a fast moving investigation, clearly a race against time. the fact that 30 people were injured is appalling but when you consider that it was on a train in the morning in london... lots of schoolchildren on the train. they were packed in like sardines. very busy and had it have gone as it had been planned, it would have been
11:35 pm
horrible. and they talk about the new style of trains as well, the new trains do not have doors between carriages. it is all an open plan so it could go all the way through.|j have to say that my american relatives are quite amazed at the song file of londoners and the british in general. the carrying on and the, people in america are were showing twitter invitations to tea. this was serious. people were quite astounded and very impressed at the way people were just going to carry on anyway. there is an amazing story about a church near the station, 100 yards away, within the cordoned area. a couple were supposed to be getting married there yesterday so the local bishop had to come in and
11:36 pm
find them, find a new location, it was that was still call from a cordoned off. did it go ahead? apparently, yes. a cup of tea solves many things in this country. the mail on sunday. tories at war over boris's move to oust pm. how much of a leap is that headline. what he has done is written an article in the daily telegraph setting out his vision for a hardened brexit then theresa seems to be heading for. theresa seems to be heading for. there is a bit of hyperbole there was that headline. i don't think it is too far from the truth. he is not trying to oust her that he is firing a shot across the bow of. we don't know what the rupert russians are or how well will play out. there is an
11:37 pm
awful lot of pressure. the timing is sensational, really, because therese temay has her big speech in florence on friday. issue should be setting out her vision for how brexit should go. we will have two competing visions, boris on one hand in favour ofa visions, boris on one hand in favour of a hard brexit and careers are made, probably not a massive fan of the eu, was a remainer sort of campaign. her vision is probably a lot softer than his. how does the cabinet react to this? i must say, this has affected the pound and help the euro, and that is the ironic pa rt of the euro, and that is the ironic part of this. it does make our exports cheaper. world, it
11:38 pm
depends... this is an importing nation so it is a problem. it is affecting the pound, people's confidence in the pound and in governance and these tories are having this big into nicene struggle of which brexit as part of their pi’oxy of which brexit as part of their proxy war. it is a proxy war, that has been going on for 30 years in the party. all of us are now sitting here, we have to watch this. we do not know what is going on with these people but this article is an example of the sort of shenanigans... the boris article? this article is trying to talk about ina this article is trying to talk about in a balanced way about what is actually going on you look at it might it boils down to personalities, to aetiology, two very personal stuff. they quote a tory grandee who says he is pro—
11:39 pm
remember behind boris. you think you might know who that is. it is all about them. and what about a we will also talking about, what about scotland, wales, northern ireland? the devolved nations have been kicked to the curb while all of this is going on in england. this threatens the whole devolved settlement. no—one is talking about that and ireland, the whole northern ireland peace agreement is built on eu law. this is incredibly serial reus and we get this sort of silliness. —— incredibly serious. politicians from the devolved parts of the country are trying to make some noise. the sunday telegraph, goes and patel backing boris. and i suppose that is surprising, given that they were probed leave. surprising so far if you remember
11:40 pm
how they had a fallout last year when david cameron resigned and michael gove was in the boris camp until the very last second and boris was about to declare... here we go again. and then he jumped ship and said boris could not be prime minister, i want be prime minister. relations have not been great between them since then but when it comes to brexit, yeah, michael gove is very much aligned with boris during the referendum campaign. patel as well. these are hard—core brexiteers. clearly the battle lines have been drawn within cabinet because you have people also like philip hammond who is definitely not ina hard philip hammond who is definitely not in a hard brexit camp. you wonder how sustainable it is locked. but michael gove and patel are not part of the. how much sway can they have? bring out the violins and we talk
11:41 pm
about it. this is the silliness of this pantomime that is going on. she should sack the lot of them. she she has the power to do it. she should get rid of these people because this is going... something is going to happen. it harms the reputation of the country and it looks horrible.|j offered to present this bulletin from florence on friday, but they did not take me up on the offer. did you come in on a ryanair? no, no, thank goodness. chancellor said to slash tuition fees. 0utraged university said on a cash mountain. this has been on the boilfor a while. jeremy corbyn made a lot of this before the election. jeremy
11:42 pm
corbyn launched this. this is a tory steel. they are going to try and make this work when they found out their average members are 70 years old. they are going to have to somehow get be able to get in something a little younger than that to keep the party going. this is one of their efforts to do that. the problem is that universities are now so problem is that universities are now so build on this system of fees they have become businesses. they are small businesses, big businesses, vice chancellors are getting enormous amounts of money. teachers and professors are actually many businesses where they go out and try to get students to come in for their courses. the arts and humanities are suffering while other courses are getting bigger and bigger. suffering while other courses are getting biggerand bigger. it is suffering while other courses are getting bigger and bigger. it is a mess. government sources have dismissed it as pure speculation, i
11:43 pm
am told. yeah, that is denial. it is am told. yeah, that is denial. it is a nondenial denial. does not say it is not true. i think it is pretty well sourced, i would suggest. and orthodoxy of about bringing down interest rates on loans, student loa ns. interest rates on loans, student loans. many of them never get paid off anyway, do they? a6 .1% interest rate at the moment. it is extortionate, really. it shows how jeremy corbyn... extortionate, really. it shows how jeremy corbyn. .. we're not going to return to their being virtually no tuition fees, are we? back in my day we did not even pay them. everything was paid by the council. they were not a true reflection of what your tuition cost. we can go back as we do not have the cash. i don't know how much this will cost the government. it says here they will bring down of these two seven and a
11:44 pm
half thousand pounds that it will be locked up for the science classes. i don't know where the money is coming from because this will come out of the budget later this year. there are so many financial black holes all over the place that they need to plug. and the university system here has not been able to actually hold this concept of fees. in the us there is no free tuition for university. i can tell you that you can start off at 21 years old with a debt that can last you for the rest of your life. it sets you up for a whole credit cycle ofjust seeing life as credit. i think it is partly a clash of the way universities are set here and the idea bringing in tuition. i think that is where the problem is and it needs to be looked at, instead of thinking about slashing, look at how the collision
11:45 pm
has happened and work from there.
