pages are in. the sunday times says eu countries are secretly willing borisjohnson to try to thrash out a new exit plan that would avoid a no deal. according to the sunday express a group of remain a tory mps personally have told the leadership contender, borisjohnson, personally have told the leadership contender, boris johnson, that personally have told the leadership contender, borisjohnson, that they will bring down his government if he pursues a no—deal brexit. y am i over here? 0k. ——5. the mail on sunday focuses on boris johnson spending thousands of pounds of taxpayers‘ money on new furniture because his estranged wife has kept all his money. we‘re going to stop. i don‘t know why. i‘m doing what was told. following orders. it is all a bit broadcast news tonight. what a great film. i love that. holly hunter. william hunt. it was a thousand years ago. you remember this film. because you are a journalist. working in television.
william hurt, wasn‘t it. journalist. working in television. william hurt, wasn't it.|j journalist. working in television. william hurt, wasn't it. i remember that. it has been like that tonight. the sunday times is where we will begin. all right. stop, no deal. secret eu drive to woo boris. a p pa re ntly secret eu drive to woo boris. apparently people from five nations have been in contact with boris johnson‘s team under the assumption he will be in number ten. the assumption as it will definitely happen. i would assumption as it will definitely happen. iwould if assumption as it will definitely happen. i would if i was in the eu. why shouldn't you try and approach him, in good faith, and explained to him, in good faith, and explained to him or show to him what has been happening. it is a huge document. this is the withdrawal agreement? yes. just to see if there is some way something could be reached. it isa way something could be reached. it is a sensible effort. and everything has been said. they know there are brexiteers saying no deal is the way forward and this has being a big thing during the hustings. i thought
we said we were not going to have hustings anymore. the hustings have gone. what do you mean no more hustings? are you many conservative party. | hustings? are you many conservative party. i am just hustings? are you many conservative party. i amjust going hustings? are you many conservative party. i am just going to miss the word hustings ——oh you mean the conservative party. i'm sure they will come back we have a general election. the brexiteers are saying that they want a come up and viruses already said that it is out of... borisjohnson? already said that it is out of... boris johnson? what did i see? boris. that is part of the stick they do with this guy. it is wrong to do that. he is borisjohnson. boris is a dog's name or something. he is borisjohnson. boris is a dog's name or something. he is boris johnson. well, there is a tennis player famously called boris. my point is this is to make us boris. my point is this is to make us feel comfortable and familiar with this guy and i think that is
wrong. yes. they're also saying that the suggestion is that they should go down to checkers and have another chat about these things. they should be carrying on, it is obvious they will be doing that. we have a new prime minister on tuesday. on tuesday the announcement of, presumably, johnson, and then theresa may goes to the queen and then borisjohnson theresa may goes to the queen and then boris johnson moves theresa may goes to the queen and then borisjohnson moves in with his new bed. well, thank you so much. nicely teed up. do i get a house by a gold star? -- house point or a gold star? boris johnson a gold star? -- house point or a gold star? borisjohnson puts on a hefty bill for furniture at number ten. what a horrible headline. you think why is it here? i suppose we are supposed to be angry, i guess, all grossed out or whatever. but we will be paying for his new bed. his
wife is keeping the marital bed. i guess his girlfriend doesn't want to bring whatever they use. it is horrible. he is going to be the first person in number 10 who is going to have a girlfriend, as opposed to... could you describe her asa opposed to... could you describe her as a mistress? he is still married. that is an old—fashioned term. as a mistress? he is still married. that is an old-fashioned term. that is an awful thing to say.|j sometimes call myself mr smith. a quite like it. well, if you call yourself —— mistress smith. according to the press association, they are quoting a source, who says this is absolute nonsense. it has not asked for anything. he supposedly told the civil service he didn‘t have any stuff and he was given a choice about whether you wa nted given a choice about whether you wanted to bring his own stuff because theresa may will be taking hers with her... her stuff goes with her. he has no stuff. he actually
hasn‘t requested any furniture at all. that was a waste of a front page. it has prince george on it. he is six. more wholesome than talking ofa is six. more wholesome than talking of a bed. let us look at the sunday times again. cash for passports. this is an exclusive of an investigation. it is a sunday times and channel 4‘s dispatches. they have found that legal and financial advisors have been omitting to tell details such as whether somebody has connections to vladimir putin, for example, or connections to the chinese military. when you come in you get a passport. you have to put £2 million into a uk company...” you get a passport. you have to put £2 million into a uk company... i am a former resident of notting hill,
holland park. and they live in another part of... this is no big deal in the terms of the fact that it has always happened. why this is in the news is only because there was a suspension of it and now it is back. a loss of the residence in the areas, that is how they that —— a lot of. we shouldn't have our economy based on possible dirty money. no, we shouldn't. but we do. the independent. johnson lines up patel to be next foreign secretary. it is to signal that the prime minister is not a british donald trump. is it colour or whatever? i have no idea what this means. trump. is it colour or whatever? i have no idea what this meanslj have no idea what this means.” don‘t either. have no idea what this means.” don't either. why don't they say what it means? this is the problem may have with a lot of papers. why don't you say what you are implying? perhaps inside it does. we don't
have enough information. they don't put it on the front you have to open the paper? yes. it is not a surprise she would get a job.” the paper? yes. it is not a surprise she would get a job. i think at the moment everyone is jostling for position. they are like vote at the beginning of a race all horses milling around for the grand national, trying to get further forward —— boats. if you look at the daily mail, home secretary is going to be... penny mordaunt. then you have such a —— sajid javid. to be... penny mordaunt. then you have such a -- sajid javid. if you sit the paper it is probably wrong. who can possibly tell the secrets? it is likely to involve iain duncan smith who could land the role of chief whip, a very difficultjob, because the arithmetic is still against borisjohnson.
because the arithmetic is still against boris johnson. he would have against boris johnson. he would have a very interesting rabble contingent on his backbenchers as well, who detest him. so that would be... didn't detest him. so that would be... didn‘t die reader david davis is even. . . didn‘t die reader david davis is even... “— didn‘t die reader david davis is even... —— didn‘t i read? you know you read these links. you read the think you read the menu think who knows? you always think how do they get employed anyway? it is very strange. look at the sunday telegraph. hunter set to freeze around assets as it wants uk —— hunt set to freeze around‘s assets. he can set it in motion, can‘t he? set to freeze around‘s assets. he can set it in motion, can't he? the point is it is extraordinarily difficult. there is another headline which is saying they took their eye off the ball in terms of this because they must have known this
would possibly happen because as soon as we would possibly happen because as soon as we impounded the iranian boatin soon as we impounded the iranian boat in gibraltar which was carrying a toy that oil into syria, allegedly, they must have known it would happen —— which was carrying all that oil. this administration has diplomatically been in a position where it has been in the middle of a little. it has been a very interesting, this country has been an interesting diplomatic fulcrum. another brexit has sucked the oxygen out of the room and has gone down. now we are looking at where it looks like we may have to follow behind the united states anti—trump, which is the nasty scenario the suggestiveness theresa may mr trick by not joining the coalition of navies... of course she did. because she was busy elsewhere. there is also the suggestion because
it was also to do with not wanting to ally britain with america and their harder stance on iran. there was another side. there was the eu side. the point is it is all very difficult and many people will look at what has been said by a former leader in the navy who was saying we are trying to do gunboat diplomacy without any gunboats. my point is that the united kingdom has had a reputation in the world for call headedness, steadiness, being there, being on the scene. that reputation since brexit is going down the tubes -- call since brexit is going down the tubes —— call headedness. since brexit is going down the tubes -- call headedness. you have to spare a thought for the crew aboard the vessel and their families. absolutely. when did it start happening that members of the military started going with masks on? these are the iranians. i no. but nevertheless. the pictures of the iranians, the iranian military who went in... it is a ploy. they
did it on purpose. the pictures have gone around the world as well. an ultimate. cost of care for relatives doubles in a decade. hundreds of thousands of older people having to sell their homes orfor thousands of older people having to sell their homes or for the care. we talked about this last segment. as i said then, the good news is we are all living longer and a life expectancy is extending. the problem is that we don't have a welfare state. the welfare state wasn't created to extend beyond the life of the time. we also have another contingent, another baby boom that is back there that is about ready to come on stream stop the average age in this country is 42. and that group of people have to balance both sides of this equation. it is good news that we are living longer, but there is also that side of living
longer with conditions which make it so longer with conditions which make it so it is very difficult, for example, to live without needing lots of help. absolutely. but their nation is not... and the united states is in exactly the same space. as is france. they are not prepared foran ageing as is france. they are not prepared for an ageing society and this is an ageing society. and we are simply not prepared for it. let us finish with the cartoon. the minstry of defence and the postman arrives with a letter. and he says "here are the nuclear codes for boris. and here is a second set of codes when he loses first set." a second set of codes when he loses first set. " that a second set of codes when he loses first set." that is the thing. that was the interesting thing about that big jar with the parking tickets on the front and the mess inside. nobody said what is it really matter? you could argue and people have argued that the thing about the
parking tickets is it smacks slightly of i don‘t sweat the small stuff, you know, other people pay parking tickets, i don‘t. i‘m not saying that is what i think. the thing about the messiness, if you work in chaos how do you get things done? he is not funny. he has got his mind on higher things. potentially. 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 — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, bonnie and penny. next on bbc news it‘s click.
