tv The Papers BBC News September 26, 2018 11:30pm-12:01am BST
hello. this is bbc news with rachel schofield. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment, first the headlines: we are raring to go here! jeremy corbyn tells labour's conference in liverpool that he is ready to start work on a radical plan to rebuild and transform our country. a decorated russian colonel, not a tourist. an investigative website reveals what it claims is the true identity of on of the suspects of the salisbury nerve—agent attack. at the united nations, president trump accuses china of attempting to meddle in the forthcoming mid—term us elections. he also said he could withdraw his nomination for brett kavanaugh as supreme courtjudge based on upcoming testimony about alleged sexual misconduct. they're giving the women a major chance to speak stopping now, it's possible i'll hear that and i'll say, "hey, i'm changing my mind."
the inquest into the death of a 15—year—old who collapsed on a plane after an allergic reaction is told the flight crew didn't use a defibrilator because they were about to land. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are michael booker, who's deputy editor of the express and broadcaster, lynn faulds wood. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in, with most of them leading on the unveiling of the true identity of one of the suspects in the salisbury poisoning. anatoliy chepiga, who used the alias ruslan boshirov, is revealed on the front page of the telegraph as a colonel in russian military intelligence who was given the country's highest honour by vladimir putin. ‘putin‘s lies are laid bare‘
says the daily mail, who also run the story with the headline ‘unmasked'. the times also lead on this, with a picture of colonel chepiga in chechnya, where the newspaper says he served three tours. while the express call him ‘putin‘s hitman‘, and ‘one of the smirking asassins'. meanwhile, the financial times reports that comcast has cleared the final hurdle in its bid to take full control of sky, that's after walt disney and 21st centruy fox said they would sell their stake in the company, ending rupert murdoch's three—decade tie to the broadcaster. the guardian hasjeremy corbyn on its front page, who has told theresa may that labour mps will vote against her brexit deal unless she can negotiate a deal he is happy with. and the i also leads with the labour leader, who told his party conference he was ready to be prime minister. we will see what our guests think of
that, among other things. we're going to start, lynn, with the guardian and a waving jeremy corbyn looking relaxed at conference, but issuing something of an ultimatum to theresa may today. i'm going to say something nice about him. once i was on here and i got trolled by corbynistas because i said something perfectly... nothing particular. i'm going to be really nice for a moment. actually i thought he did really well, i watched the whole speech, but usually, when you're in opposition, you can produce a shopping list of wonderful things and maybe there's a magic money tree. there was lots of that today, lots of standing ovations. 13,000 people were in the hall. this was a very excited crowd he was talking to. the guardian have chosen to go on is this bit about if you don't
get the deal right, we will veto it. he's come up with a shopping list that includes being in the customs union, having no hard border with ireland. rights for workers. there's got to be more environmental and consumer standards. all that kind of stuff, which is probably not going to get past the right wing of the party, so there had to be a snag. there's all sorts of other things, he listed all the other things, lots of this sounds great because we live ina very of this sounds great because we live in a very unequal society. the poor and the people not as well off have never really bridged the gap with the rich. we have got too many people who are still deemed to be poorin people who are still deemed to be poor in this country and too many poor in this country and too many poor children. i like the stuff, there's stuff on the young, which was little kids of two, three and four, up to 30 hours of preschool for them forfree.
four, up to 30 hours of preschool for them for free. you've fallen for him, haven't you? ithink for them for free. you've fallen for him, haven't you? i think there's a lot of good stuff in here. but how the heck do you pay for it? yes... and when i get old, i'll get a free television licence and i'll get... 0h, television licence and i'll get... oh, no, that wasn't there's! bus passes and other things. the classic opposition conference speech where they offer whatever you like, dodo eggs, dragons' two years. it is very important... but, as you say, whether they can pay for it in the long—term is another matter —— dragons' tears. he said their winning the public debate and they've defined the new common sense of the labour party. and they are the new majority. as a minority in government! some of the staff could scare the tories at their conference
next week, proposing taxation on second homes, i haven't got one so that's not a bad idea but... have you got a second home? only one! because they've been fairly successful in protecting themselves at this conference, no massive disasters or faux pas particularly, and they've got everyone on side, but theresa may has to have a good co nfe re nce but theresa may has to have a good conference last year. last year we have the coughing and we ended up feeling sorry for her, and bizarrely that was slightly successful, we thought we would give her a break. she needs a good conference. over the weekend she doesn't need stuff from brexiteers in the sunday papers having a go at her, she needs unity because labour have put on a united front whatever you think of what they're doing. we will talk about they're doing. we will talk about the tories in a minute because people saying he has had a good labour conference and in a way he has managed to gloss over some of the divisions in his party over brexit, in a shaky way they got to a
common —ish position. brexit, in a shaky way they got to a common -ish position. today they are proposing things that are quite a good idea. i did ten years of watchdog, that was a while back, one of the constant things, we have some of the constant things, we have some of the constant things, we have some of the worst insulated homes in europe —— watchdog. there used to be cowboys offering to insulate your home is with cavity wall insulation and all this stuff. we still have the worst insulated homes in europe. one of the things they're proposing is they'll have an army of people, presumably not cowboys, who will improve our homes. there will be more money for these solar panels in your roof and so on —— on your roof. i don't know where all this money is going to come from. as you said, there will be lots of people who do believe what he's saying and do want a change. if he is offering an end to austerity, people will think, you never know, maybe corbyn? of the metro have got a picture of him in
full flow, and their headline: —— the metro. a line of thought in the labour party, if brexit goes belly up and no deal, this could be the chance for a general election. he says he's ready to negotiate on the brexit deal he would like. he's looking towards more of a soft brexit, talking about customs unions and things like that. then the free childcare offer as well, that will go down well with a lot of people. the other thing about the new wave nationalisation and deregulating... sorry, not deregulating but deregulation of capitalism hasn't gone down well with a lot of people. again, lots of people feel left out, lots of people voting brexit will feel the same in the north where they feel like they have been left out by the elite. he is speaking to them. a great shopping list, reversing council cuts and police cuts. a list of things...
reversing council cuts and police cuts. a list of things. .. last time i checked there isn't a general election in the next few weeks. we've said that before, haven't we? the feelgood factor could go very quickly. the trouble is this was a party in disarray before, i didn't know what they wanted from brexit. they didn't seem very clear. he says this is making it clear now but he finishes with the line saying all options are on the table. we mustn't forget there are plenty of labour voters, while some of what he's saying will appeal to them, the court economic strategies, plenty of labour voters wanted to get out of the eu and won't necessarily... this won't necessarily be music to their ears to here that all options are on the table. it will still be a divided party, as will the conservatives be after next week. we're living through very troubled times. ifeel we're living through very troubled times. i feel there is we're living through very troubled times. ifeel there is a bit of trump in what corbyn is saying,
everything is better and we're going to do wonderful things. you never know, trump got into the white house, which surprised quite a lot of people, me included!” house, which surprised quite a lot of people, me included! ithink there will be a crisis five days tops! let's talk about the conservative party conference. we can look ahead to next week, michael, the times saying may is losing cabinet support for a no—deal brexit. perhaps already the cracks are starting to open up again just as she wants to pull it together before next week. that's the thing with this lot in her party, very strange. losing cabinet support for her plan to revert to a no—deal brexit if they reject chequers in the eu. senior ministers mentioned, dominic raab, the brexit secratary, jeremy hunt, sajid javid, dominic raab, the brexit secratary, jeremy hunt, sajidjavid, they dominic raab, the brexit secratary, jeremy hunt, sajid javid, they are worried she will stick to her promise to force a no deal. they don't want a prime minister to stick toa don't want a prime minister to stick to a promise, ministers think that isa to a promise, ministers think that is a bad thing! whatever you
think... if she is saying we will go to no deal... she needs that in her armoury, whatever you think about this, she needs to say to the eu, no deal and walk away. they don't think she should say it any more. she's a lwa ys she should say it any more. she's always been stuck, as any leader would be, she's got the two audiences, she has to have a position to the eu but she has to say to her party i'm in this bit and that bit, so many people to keep happy and so many messages to channel to the right people. happy and so many messages to channelto the right people. her party is as late as this country was on brexit, and the same with the labour party, and they will carry on being split hash as split. i don't now how you get through this mess and come out on the other side. she is saying here a no deal would be better than a bad deal because a bad deal would lead to the breakup of the uk's. surely no deal might as well. she is saying she needs another deal apart from chequers ——
the uk. the eu, the way they treated her last week the uk. the eu, the way they treated herlast week in the uk. the eu, the way they treated her last week in salzburg, know they can get away with treating her like that because they think they will come to a soft deal with us and eventually. they have weakened her eventually. they have weakened her even more. it is interesting, tucked away at the end of the article, this key group of cabinet swing voters, dominic raab, jeremy hunt, michael gove, sajid javid insist they will remain loyal and back mrs may's chequers plan, this is the killer phrase, through the conference season. phrase, through the conference season. the end of next week! will be still back her or is there a stopping horse that's going to appear next week saying we can't keep this shambles going, we are the laughing stock of europe! as are the labour party at times, because we haven't got a decent opposition. you loved them five minutes ago!|j haven't got a decent opposition. you loved them five minutes ago! i don't wa nt to loved them five minutes ago! i don't want to be torn apart by corbynistas, please! and, so... it
is conference season. you need a magic wand. interesting to see how much this holds together, boris johnson and other big characters will no doubt come out and have something to say, and the whole carefully sticky taped together edifice may fall apart. the whole weekend and into next week is a minefield for theresa may, donald trump tonight and then thrown into the fire with her own lot. the one thing you cannot predict with things at the moment is anything because it could all change. we throw it up in the airand see could all change. we throw it up in the air and see what comes down by the air and see what comes down by the end of next week. let's move on, lots of the papers, like the daily telegraph, michael, leading on this amazing piece of investigative journalism by belling cat, the investigative journalism organisation, which has been really delving into this story about the russian hitmen/ tourists revealing
interesting stuff. fantastic investigative journalism, we need that work going on. it's a shame that work going on. it's a shame that we have certain people in certain countries having a go at journalism, such as donald trump, talking about fake news, which is exactly what the russians like talking about as well, the disinformation they've tried. this stops any of that, looking at the evidence about this guy. he won the hero of the russian federation award in 2014, a secret ceremony given only by the president himself. it cuts across anything that putin said they didn't know anything about this. there we were, we were all thinking he was a sports nutritionist... this is the absolute proof. tory minister quoted in here says this is embarrassing for putin and russia but is it? everyone knew they were lying in the first place. what's interesting about the cove rage what's interesting about the coverage on every front page is not well in, one person mentions dawn
sturgess, the woman who died. again, there is that... you can fall into there is that... you can fall into the boyzone stuff, it is all spies, but someone died because of his hapless fool, this highly decorated, highly skilled soldier. there's more detail in the times, they've done more, they talked about how he might have known and worked with skripal and there may have been a personal grudge within the secret service in russia. skripal was maybe involved. notjust from putin russia. skripal was maybe involved. not just from putin angry about him being a spy and selling russian secrets, also his fellow operatives. they were fed up with him for defecting. of course. the daily mail as well leading on this, putin's lies. the pictures they have managed to source in this investigation. they've got a picture of this guy, whose name is anatoliy chepiga, and they've got a picture of him as a
young man before he came ruslan boshirov. they've uncovered some interesting documents, passport photos and things. -- he became. the times has lots of detail, and this is only the start. bellingcat has to be congratulated and also the telegraph, they said they worked with bellingcat. it was started by a man called elliot higgins in this country. it just shows man called elliot higgins in this country. itjust shows that man called elliot higgins in this country. it just shows that we man called elliot higgins in this country. itjust shows that we now live in an age where people find out all sorts of stuff, they can immediately posted on social media. i think there was a journalist who did work on the syrian civil war a few years ago and he's got a great reputation. hopefully he carries on. to go reputation. hopefully he carries on. togoa reputation. hopefully he carries on. to go a bit bond and get sucked into the excitement, but geopolitically, a lot is being made of it —— there's a lot is being made of it —— there's a temptation to go a bit bond.
there's the duplicity with theresa may, she made a more political point about it. she did stop it you mention this is boyzone staff, there's another woman involved, yulia skripal, who i don't know if that affects your life —— she did. you mentioned that this is boyzone stuff. i don't know about this... theresa may is talking tough but what are we doing against them? the russians realise there isn't much we can do. they didn't know that we we re can do. they didn't know that we were doing that so they don't know what we're doing. conspiracies abound! it to express, the best places to live if you want to stick a street. the borrower of hash more, farmborough as well, the survey
office of national statistics, on a scale to tender. they are a .35 happy. the 0.35 is happy. they have a strong sense of community, great transport links, somebody was interviewed in their saying i am not sure what is going on but they are building a new cinema. they've got a very good hospital as well, which i am not sure, if you go into it, it might look very nice. it might be very efficient. if you go into the hospital that often then maybe you are not that happy. i know that a military town was coming out as the happiest and rushmore is indicative of the people who live there, who work for this country, they are in the services. they will not say we hate it here, are they? that is a very cynical view. they get a tap on the shoulder saying what have you been saying? also, the worst placed
seems to be the semblance of cambridgeshire. —— fenlon ‘s. they are cambridgeshire. —— fenlon ‘s. they a re pretty cambridgeshire. —— fenlon ‘s. they are pretty happy. nobody is having a terrible time. the average is 7.7 happiness. we are quite chirpy lot. we must be even happier. on the traini we must be even happier. on the train i will say am —— i am 7.7 today. sunday 's 8.35. in the express , today. sunday 's 8.35. in the express, this is all about again, and app that might help us understand more about dementia.” and app that might help us understand more about dementia. i am all for things that people can do, especially about the big stuff. there are was a couple of things that people can do here to help. there is got to be a million people with dementia in three years time, according to this article. —— going to be. there is a new game changer app. it has been created by oxford
university and the alzheimer's society. it has got various puzzles and memory things that you can do on their that will indicate, they believe, that you are at risk of dementia at a much earlier stage. the bad news there is that we don't have magical drugs, we have got nothing yet that turns off dementia. what we do no more recently is that there are things we can all do to make us less likely to get it in our lifetime and there are probably also think you can do if you are told you got it early, to try to stave it it off. that is the missing link in this. if we could probably help to show that you can track dementia earlier, then that will increase the ability of us to find a way to deal with it topic because then everybody will pile in with money saying i would like to help. there would be a lot of people who wouldn't like to ta ke lot of people who wouldn't like to take the test at all, the fear
factor. there has been a number of stories in the last few weeks that says there will be drugs within five years, ten years, we hear that says there will be drugs within five years, ten years, we hearthat an awful lot... the last didn't work. exactly. hopefully this is something that can point people in the right direction and get some good care. last week they showed that we are the third fattest country after malta and turkey in greater europe. this week we have found that actually, our survival rate have stalled and in some areas, scotland and wales, which are poor areas of the country, they have actually gone down. there are things you can do to stave off dementia, diet, don't drink, see well. there you go, the healthy living advice. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you, seven days
a week at bbc.co.uk/papers. all that remains fully to do is to say thank you to lynn and mike. we would like to chat longer but we cannot. see you tomorrow night. let's go back to our breaking news. president trump has given an extra ordinary news conference in new york tonight, following his chairmanship ofa un tonight, following his chairmanship of a un security council meeting. said the us would have been drawn into a said the us would have been drawn intoa war said the us would have been drawn into a war with north korea if he had not been elected. out of the news co nfe re nce had not been elected. out of the news conference was taken up by his thoughts on his nomination ofjudge brett kava naugh to thoughts on his nomination ofjudge brett kavanaugh to the us supreme court, saying he might change his mind. a new investigation by the senate alleges that he committed serious sexual assault in high school. he said he did not know the accuser and allegations never happened. he is set to testify
tomorrow over other sexual misconduct claims. during tonight's news conference, president trump was questioned closely about the issue. have a listen. it wouldn't have mattered if the fbi came back with the cleanest score, you understand that very well, john. if they had come back with the most perfect, we gave everything and he is perfectly innocent of everything on it wouldn't have made a difference. you wouldn't have gotten one vote. now, we will get vote is from the democrats if we win the. you will have three, four, or five democrats giving us vote because they are in states that i won by 30 and 40 points and they will give him their vote. but other than that, you probably won't get any. yes, go. mr president, there are now three when a accusing brett kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, you say that all three of those women are liars? it's there anything that could be said tomorrow that could cause you to withdraw the
nomination? anything at all?” that could cause you to withdraw the nomination? anything at all? i won't get into that game, i will only tell you this. is one of the highest quality people that i have ever met and everybody that knows it says the same thing. —— this is. these are all false to me. these are false accusations in certain cases and certain cases, even the media agrees that. i can only say that what they have done to this man is incredible. —— agrees with that. is very interesting. i think a lot of judges, i have 140 byjudges i will be picking on the end of a fairly short period of time because president obama was a big on picking judges. when i got there, i said how is this possible? i have 145, including court of appeals judges. and they just including court of appeals judges. and theyjust didn't do it. you know why? they got tired, they got complacent, something happened. i
have 140 byjudges, everybody wants to bea have 140 byjudges, everybody wants to be a federaljudge, notjust a supreme courtjudge, to be a federaljudge, notjust a supreme court judge, i to be a federaljudge, notjust a supreme courtjudge, i talking about court of appeals, and talking about district court. i do think they are going to want to so much. i will be calling people and we have people calling people and we have people calling people and we have people calling people that will do this, and people will be scared, because we can say it about you, 35 years ago, and you might not know what is going on, what is going on? why did they wait so long? why did senator feinstein wait until the hearings we re over feinstein wait until the hearings were over and make this case? why didn't she bring it right at the beginning when you ask about, as an example, the fbi? why didn't they bring this right at the beginning? during the hearing? you would have had all the time in the world with the fbi, it would have been fine. the fbi, as you know, did investigate this time, as they have done five or six other times it. a did a very thorough investigation. but this is a big conjob, and i
would love to be in the room with the democrats, close the door, you quys the democrats, close the door, you guys are all outside waiting and chuck schumer and his buddies are all in there laughing, how the full you all. let's just stop them, a all in there laughing, how the full you all. let'sjust stop them, a big fat con the. if i could follow up, you have daughters, could you understand why a victim of sexual assault would not report it at the time? you understand? by the way, i only say this. 36 years, no charge, no nothing. but that happens often... people are going to have to make a decision. 36 years, there is no charge, all of a sudden, the hearings are over and that the rulings to make —— and it starts coming out, then you have this other con artists coming out with another beauty today's. i am yet to set you look at the facts, the senators are
good people, i know many of them, they are friends of mine. these are very talented, good people and they are going to vote, they opened to believe what they believe. when i look at what has happened to the reputation of a great gentleman, a great intellect, a brilliant man, someone who has a brilliant chance to be one of our great supreme court justices in history, intellectually, i think it is a shame. yes, please. president trump speaking in the last hour, gives you a flavour of what an unusually long as conference that he has given this evening in new york. time for the weather. very good evening to you, a lovely day for some today, fine autumn walks, temperatures 24 degrees in a few spot and skies with that like this. there are changes, at the moment across the far north, heavy rain through the night to the north and western isles, a bit of a breeze, but that keep —— keeps
