this is bbc news. i have already started talking, i was ahead of you. we're going to look at the papers, it isa we're going to look at the papers, it is a bit ofa we're going to look at the papers, it is a bit of a shambles at the moment! lets do the headlines, they are usually quite straightforward. fears tonight about the health of a british woman held in iran as her husband says she is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe has been imprisoned for 18 months on charges of spying. today, a second cabinet minister was accused of failing to declare she was in iran on holiday. what was she doing when she went to run? i don't know. one of the things i want to stress is that there is no reason why she should be in prison, as faras any reason why she should be in prison, as far as any of us know. the prince of wales leads tributes to the fallen as this year the queen watches the ceremony from a nearby balcony. a bbc investigation into

donald trump's meeting with the filippino counterpart in manila yesterday. let's begin with iran and nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe being held on charges of spying. her family say she was just there on holiday. here it is in the telegraph. don't axe boris over my wife's iran jail shambles. a statement richard ratcliffe has made comment part about his wife's medical condition? it appears she has undergone medical tests a nd it appears she has undergone medical tests and there are concerns that she may have cancer. i think the tests are preliminary. i agree, i don't think boris johnson tests are preliminary. i agree, i don't think borisjohnson should be sacked. i think he should have resigned. he sat before a committee of parliament and repeated the lies of parliament and repeated the lies of the iranian regime, that she was training journalists, notjust visiting family. he refused to apologise. michael gove seems to be casting aspersions as well. i'm not sure if that is loose language, but it looks like the environment secretary is more concerned about
10:34 pm
defending the foreign secretary than protecting a british national. i think foreign secretary is one of the key posts, where they should be careful with their language. boris johnson has shown he does not do this. she was brought in front of a conservative judge and she could be imprisoned for an extra five years. her husband is saying, borisjohnson might be able to help here. her husband is saying, borisjohnson might be able to help herelj her husband is saying, borisjohnson might be able to help here. i think is probably feeling extremely shaken by the events of the last few days. perhaps thinking stop messing. it does seem like every single time a politician speaks out on this it doesn't seem to be helping their case. now he is clearly very concerned about his wife's health. hopefully, i imagine he is thinking behind the scenes the dramatic channels might affect more of an improvement in his wife's circumstances than anything that a politician is saying up front and centre. michael gove didn't do anything, perhaps the path of good

intentions, but it led to him saying lam not intentions, but it led to him saying i am not sure what she was doing there, which has been very clear in there, which has been very clear in the last few days. her family have said exactly what you was doing when she was on holiday. so now we have the added convocation. this is a story, as tony said, it has been going on for weeks now behind the scenes. this story seemed to go away. borisjohnson's blooper was overshadowed by priti patel and it seems to be coming back into the main headlines again. they can put it right with some emphatic language, couldn't they? the i am not sure they can. by the way, this is michael gove. he is going on television and saying that criticism of the foreign secretary is helping the iranians. that is false equivalence. i see two people more interested in theirjobs than the national interest and the welfare of british citizens and it makes me very sad. the, the church saying let kids choose their gender. being given to
10:36 pm
nearly 5000 schools, this guidance? it seems to be a very progressive move by the church of england, who perhaps want to be seen to be on the front foot of history. often we see that they have defied all sorts of battles about women priests, what the view is on same—sex marriages. clearly, this is a zeitgeist issue that they have decided they will own and they are saying that children should be allowed to express their gender in a climate that black sphere, where they can experiment creatively and go through all of the changes that young children who wish to identify and another gender are making trips to clinics, and they have jumped on this and seen it as a topic that they can be seen to be helped. it is massively controversial, the subject. people have strong views. this is really to say that whatever children choose, how they choose to describe themselves, they should be bullied for it? it is written in church language, the child may choose the
10:37 pm
tutu, the tiara, the fireman's helmet. the church of england, apart from being religious, it is also an education provider. the churches issuing guidelines because they're worried they will get sued the parents of transgender children. so, it is not a theological issue, it is legal. it is the church, as a significant education provider, issuing guidelines to schools. many of them educate children that are not from the church of england. saying, look, the transgender thing, we need to make sure we are not pressing children into gender expression. then evangelical christians, there is a lady from the christians, there is a lady from the christian law centre, they are often involved in fighting for what they see as the rights of christians. they say any dissent or a slip of the tongue will be labelled hateful. lam not the tongue will be labelled hateful. i am not sure why she has taken such an extreme position on what seems to
10:38 pm
be just saying that children should be just saying that children should be able to express themselves how they want to. there is no mention of parents. not at all. it isjust about primary schools, nursery schools and teachers, the ways in which schools should approach. there appear to be more young people expressing feelings that may be in the wrong gender. the fact it is such a big issue means it will make the front page of every paper, even though they are just issuing guidance that most people would think is reasonable. it comes against the background of two days ago in the daily mail, jumping on a story where a schoolteacher addressed a pupil by the wrong gender and allegedly lost his job as a result. clearly it is a hot brick topic. the guardian, a couple brexit stories. can't go very far into the paper review without one, can we? brexit is to send the pm orwellian
10:39 pm
set of demands. this is a memo that is mail on sunday was reporting today. how is this anything more than a retread of that? it's not, really. the memo was sent some weeks ago. it also shows the impossible situation prime minister is in. as you are aware, the withdrawal bill comes back to the house of commons on tuesday. the return has been delayed, as mrs may try to get her rebels around the table and do a deal. the reason that the part of the bill's process is critical, it is where they can start putting amendments forward, it is the stage where they can start changing things. it says the prime minister is already struggling with the eu withdrawal bill, with labour expected to join tory rebels and inflict a series of defeats. theresa may does not have a majority. she has a confidence and supply arrangement with the dup, but it only takes a small number of her own mps to rebel for her to lose votes and house of commons. i think we are coming up to the stage now where tory mps are going to have to ask themselves if they are going to be
10:40 pm
pragmatic and act in the national interests, or go for the ideology of the hard brexit. i have to say, there is no consensus in the conservative party for either approach. i think it will get really messy. that is before it arrives in house of lords, where it will get even messier. the lords will say they are acting in the national interest. another brexit story, and the telegraph, which i have put to the telegraph, which i have put to the back of the pile. aiming at the pets of britain. they know how to get us. michel barnier hints that there will be a pet travel ban because the brexit talks have gone to the dogs? it is where everybody stops. it is like the tv adverts where the houses for sale, the car is for sale, have you really thought about this? this is it. michel barnier is threatening that should there be no deal, one of the very first effect will be that pet passports may be a thing of the past and that we will not be able to take
10:41 pm
oui’ and that we will not be able to take our prized pooches across the channel. that will obviously stop anybody who was thinking of brexiting in their tracks. there is an episode of yes, prime minister, the prime minister getting a gift from the queen of france, and the issue of quarantine. i imagine them sitting in brussels, what will really wind up the english? dogs. sitting in brussels, what will really wind up the english? dogsm wasn't that long ago that we couldn't go to and fro across the channel. it was only 2015 where it was brought in. it is part of upping the ante. we are going to see more of that. the tension is ratcheting up of that. the tension is ratcheting up and we are getting to the stage of michel barnier issuing demands and saying that we have to cough up more money or there will not be progress on trade talks. the other end, we have the hard brexit years saying we don't need a trade. jacob rees—mogg... saying we don't need a trade. jacob rees-mogg. .. it wouldn't be complete without a quote from him. he is
10:42 pm
basically all for keeping rabid eurocrat out of the uk. he said a fear of rabies was more of a concern than uk dogs going to europe. fear of rabies was more of a concern than uk dogs going to europem was, but we know that these things work both ways. let's go to the financial times. the picture story. two chaps enjoying a glass of what looks like it is probably champagne, judging by the glasses. they have a lot in common, some mightargue, they have a lot in common, some might argue, with their iconoclastic styles. this usually big fans of each other. the whole goodwill tour seems to be a stretch across an ice rink, cani seems to be a stretch across an ice rink, can i just seems to be a stretch across an ice rink, can ijust get to the other side without cutting anybody's fingers off or falling over? it seems to be one of his better days. we have seen some tweets about north korea, we have seen him pretty much dodging what has been going on in the states. he does seem to be not upsetting the fish, as he did when
10:43 pm
he visited the previous country. he seems to be finding a like—minded soul in duterte. both of them swept to power in elections last year on the strength of iconoclastic policies. a very controversial pair. the little similarity is that they said they would shake things up. in duterte's case, it led to lots of extrajudicial murders. the international community condemned him for that, donald trump goes and rinse with him, he doesn't drink, so i don't know what is in that class. nobody else would be photographed with this man, no otherworldly that. but it is part of a trip in which the president of the united states says he believes the president of russia, a former kgb agent, more than the entirety of his intelligence and security apparatus. we sometimes think he is a bit of a buffoon, this shows you the really worrying side of his policies. the
10:44 pm
coarsening of america's reputation. shall we finish with the metro? rita ora, ina shall we finish with the metro? rita ora, in a bathrobe with a towel on her head? i'm sorry, is this what we
