5:45 am
in manila in protest to trump's visit. the us president has offered to mediate in the south china sea disputes. turning to the financial times, with an article on the front page claiming british spymasters fear anti—virus software that has been given to more than 2 million barclays customers may be being used as an intelligence—gathering tool by the russian government. having a look to the guardian in australia, where activists have vowed to press on with protests for more than 400 refugees on manus island, as authorities in papua new guinea prepare to forcibly remove them today. in other news online, for reuters, prince charles leads remembrance day ceremony for the british war dead, as the queen watched on. some say it signals a significant shift as the head of state gradually reduces her workload. and lastly, on the front page of the daily telegraph, could the family pet now lose out
5:46 am
from the brexit negotiations? michel barnier has said — the brussels brexit negotiator — the collapse of trade talks is a "real possibility" and warned it could affect the ability of "dogs and cats to cross the channel." that's more than 20,000 pets each year. with me is doctor stephanie hare, the principal director at accenture so let's get started with the press in asia, this is the philippine star, and what does it say? important to remember the us and the philippines have a strong relationship, like a colonial thai. duterte was not very nice about former president barack 0bama. -- tie. he has an alignment of temperament with the us president. they seem to get on well.
5:47 am
what's really interesting in the coverage of this is no mention of the fact the other 11 countries part of the tpp, trans—pacific partnership, they agreed to press on with the trade deal. the united states is not going to be part of that deal so we have to see the discussions between the us and the philippines in the wider context of what the us is seeking to do in asia—pacific. what the us is seeking to do in asia-pacific. a phrase that trips off president trump's tongue all the time is indo—pacific. off president trump's tongue all the time is indo-pacific. indeed. he is trying to create a new kind of jargon in the area which encompasses many countries and not necessarily increasing chinese influence. seeking to weave in india and the us wa nts to seeking to weave in india and the us wants to continue to offer itself as a credible counterweight to china in that region, and it looks like part of the trump administration strategy will be moving india into that and not being part of trade, not being pa rt not being part of trade, not being part of the tpp, so that is really significant as a signal.
5:48 am
interesting, you have a picture of duterte and trump smiling and laughing together, different to that with barack laughing together, different to that with ba rack 0bama, laughing together, different to that with barack 0bama, the former president. they are even wearing the same top. looking at the china morning post, covering the same story, instead of images of duterte and trump, clashes outside the us embassy in manila. too many people in manila he is not welcome. and we have to remember the context of what's happening in the philippines with duterte. this country is undergoing serious civil strife at the moment and the entry of donald trump into that dynamic is going to be really complicated and fraught. this was a delicate state visit. and you're soon those protesters are assuming that us president won't support them —— assuming those protesters are assuming the us president won't support them. duterte's record on drugs and extrajudicial killings won't be
5:49 am
mentioned by donald trump. let's move on. the financial times, this isa move on. the financial times, this is a really interesting story, give us is a really interesting story, give us your take on this, uk sky spymasters have fears over russian links. good 2 million barclays customers harbour software that they've been given to enable russia to spy on them, is that what it is about? that is the implication. this shouldn't be surprising to anyone who has followed the conspiracy stories in the us. most of us intelligence leaders were asked if they would run the software on their own systems and unanimously they said no. so the us, important to remember, kapersky has entered the commercial sector, on a lot of us companies' firms to come happening all over the atlantic, when the us government signalled it would be removing kaspersky from it systems, that was a big one, companies have
5:50 am
to make a big call. as you see it hq. to make a big call. as you see it hq, they have security concerns. despite please just not go with it, they are carrying on with something they are carrying on with something they should... this began in 2008. quite sometime ago. will -- relations with russia have changed over time. the guardian is looking at what's going on in australia, well, papua new guinea to be precise, where these refugees are being held in a centre where they are actually protest in — it was closed down two weeks ago — they are still in an pay will be forcibly moved today. —— and they will be forcibly moved today. it is a horrendous story. it is an humanitarian crisis and an immigration policy issue and it is forcing australia like many countries to look at itself and ask
5:51 am
what kind of country we want to be and how we feel that refugees and was this preventable, why has it got into this situation? it is interesting to see it from the meta level, how can we handle human beings in 2017? i know for the australian government they have had a very strong stance when it comes to the issue of refugees. many from the outside and within australia are protesting against that stance, they say it is inhumane, the way they handle refugees is not in line with international regulations etc, so does this international focus on what's going on there maybe put more pressure? i think it will put pressure? i think it will put pressure on them and that does not mean that they will change. there is an argument that if you are too nice in refugee or humanitarian situations that you will encourage more. so it is a really difficult moment. it is a fine line. exactly. many papers in the uk have pictures of either the queen or prince charles at the remembrance service.
5:52 am
marking that yesterday, and armistice day asset —— etc, so charles taking a new role and the queen stepping back. a changing of the guard, she was watching, and this is the moment for him to step up this is the moment for him to step up on such an important day of remembrance in this country in particular. interesting, isn't it, how it is changing in the royal family as the queen and the duke of edinburgh take more of a back seat. 0bviously edinburgh take more of a back seat. obviously the duke of edinburgh, but the queen slowly, gradually sort of relaxing and many would argue for her at her age absolutely! and with prince william and prince harry and theirfamilies stepping prince william and prince harry and their families stepping up as well. michel barnier, brussels brexit negotiator, hinting at the issues with regards to brexit. there is a lot of details this is about pet travel. this may be the one thing
5:53 am
that really excites britons more than anything, because now it is going to bite, we can't take cats and dogs on holiday, or too easily travel across the channel. and vice—versa. travel across the channel. and vice-versa. it goes to show so much of policy is opaque, it doesn't feel real, and suddenly now. story comes along that we can relate to and understand. exactly. it goes to show how much brexit will influence everyone's lives, down to the micro level, not just the everyone's lives, down to the micro level, notjust the working visas, it is down to your family travel. absolutely, and it is a small story on the daily telegraph, but as we have spoken about, critical discussions are under way. we have them in downing street today with, interesting, leaders from all over europe. ijust wonder interesting, leaders from all over europe. i just wonder what they will say to the uk prime minister at this time. you know, bosses from germany and france et cetera. one hopes it is honest and frank as possible because we are at a critical point
5:54 am
in these talks and the uk really has to secure this first part of the negotiations in order to go onto the next bit, otherwise the risk of crashing out of the eu will rise. all right, we have to leave it there. thank you for your time and your contribution to the briefing today. it has been great to have you on the programme. and it was great to have your company as well. stay with us here on bbc news. if you are with us here on bbc news. if you are with us here on bbc news. if you are with us on bbc one, joined louise and dan on breakfast. 0n bbc kabine world, you will be back with me in five minutes with all of the news. goodbye. hello there. well, for most of us, sunday was a pretty glorious day. plenty of sunshine, but it was cold. windy as well, particularly down the east coast. plenty of showers here too.
5:55 am
some of these will continue through the course of the night, again some of them on the heavy side, but become more confined to the north sea coast of england and elsewhere, turning much drier, and a much colder night to come than the previous night. a widespread frost developing in some rural places. you can see the blue colours there. but something a little less cold pushing into the north—west of the uk by the end of the night, as a weather system pushes in here, bringing increasing cloud and outbreaks of rain. so we start monday morning, then, on a cold and frosty note. lots of sunshine, though. you can sill see the blue hue there, so some places around freezing or below at around 8 o'clock in the morning. we'll continue to still see scattered showers and blustery conditions across eastern coast areas, particularly from lincolnshire down in towards east anglia. the odd heavier one too. for much of northern ireland, for much of northern england and scotland, also a cold start. but we'll see increasing wind and cloud across western scotland, with outbreaks of rain pushing into the western isles initally. and this weather system will continue to move eastwards through the course of the day, bringing some rain and hill snow. we could even see some snow down to lower levels,
5:56 am
across central and eastern parts of scotland for a time, before it all turns back to rain as the milder air moves in. for northern ireland, it will be turning cloudier, with outbreaks of rain. elsewhere, a fine day but the sunshine gradually turning hazier, and it's going to be another cold one. and then, through monday night, this weather system continues to advance eastwards, bringing stronger winds, outbreaks of rain to much of the country, but also milder air. we'll lose the cold air as that weather system moves in. you can see we're all into the yellow and orange colours. most of the country, i say, because the far north of scotland continues to wax and wane in that cooler air stream. so, for tuesday, it's a cloudier day. there will be outbreaks of rain, particularly across western hills, a bit of mist and murk. look at those double—figure values for most — 10—12 degrees. wednesday and thursday, also rather cloudy. probably the best of the sunshine across northern parts of the uk. thursday actually looking like probably being the mildest day across the whole of the uk. so it's quite a mixture this week. we're starting off on a cold and frosty start, with some sunshine.
5:57 am
it turns milder and cloudy for a time, with outbreaks of rain, and then signs of it turning colder by the end of the week. hello. this is breakfast, with dan walker and louise minchin. new fears for the health of a british woman being held in an iranianjail. the husband of nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe says lumps have been found in her breasts, as the government faces more criticism over its handling of her case. good morning. it's monday the 13th of november. also this morning: primary schools are given transgender guidance by the church of england. teachers are told they should let boys and girls wear tutus, tiaras, and tool belts without them being bullied or labelled.
