tv   The Papers  BBC News  August 23, 2019 10:40pm-11:00pm BST

10:40 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are olivia utley who's deputy editor of the news website the article — and the guardian columnist dawn foster. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. world leaders are to hold emergency talks this weekend on the wildfires engulfing the amazon rainforest — that's on the front page of the guardian. the ‘i' leads with the prime minister borisjohnson calling on action from the g7 members to tackle the amazon fires. borisjohnson will lay down his red lines for a post—brexit trade agreement with america when he meets the president at the g7 this weekend, that's according to the telegraph. on the same story, the times says borisjohnson
10:41 pm
will tell donald trump that a post—brexit deal with the us must be "right" for britain, and will warn that the nhs will not be on the table in any circumstances. women have been forced into buying hormone replacement therapy from abroad as it has become almost impossible to get in parts of the uk, that's according to the mail. chief constables will hold a crisis meeting next month after an alarming rise in violence against members of the police force says the express. the mirror reports on more allegations surrounding prince andrew. and the sun also gives its take on the prince andrew story. will come again, let's kick off with the daily telegraph's front page. dawn, what is your take on this headline? so, the redlines that johnson is seen to lay down is that the nhs is entirely of the table come obviously the nhs is much beloved amongst british people, and there are a lot of fears that brexit will mean opening up parts of the
10:42 pm
nhs to business. at something that donald trump tweeted about a few months ago. when donald trump came to the uk he said it was very excited about possible trade deals involving the nhs. an obvious the british people have fears of anything close to a us system is terrifying so johnson's anything close to a us system is terrifying sojohnson‘s team saying it will be entirely off the table in the trunk team seem to say the opposite and jeremy corbyn and other opposition leaders of pointing out that obviously donald trump holds a lot of the playing cards here. and thatis lot of the playing cards here. and that is the point, isn't it? yes and the other interesting thing is there's too redlines that he is laid down, was the nhs and the other is welfare. i think it's wise that he's making such a point to this. at the probably been influenced probably by michael gove and by his girlfriend carrie simons. michael uses position as environment or secretary to talk about promoting better and more
10:43 pm
where welfare standards and turning into a pioneering country after brexit. it's really interesting and i think it's good to come if he's looking to engage in generation of young people it seems to be quite a sensible move, and it's interesting that these are the things that he has put out right here at the very beginning. the article makes the point that boris johnson has beginning. the article makes the point that borisjohnson has held several conch conversations over the phone since donald trump became prime minister hinting at a close relationship on that perhaps he did not have with borisjohnson's predecessor. johnson has really come out and said, here's everything that's on the table. i'm pretty sure that's on the table. i'm pretty sure that i can push this forward, but obviously he knows that he is dealing with the president of the very bombastic but that's putting it lightly, and is not really a leader that we have seen much before.
10:44 pm
earlier in the week donald trump has cancelled a visit to denmark because he does not come he has been told that he cannot buy greenland. so johnson can say what he likes about how he expects these things to go but anything could happen. donald trump could be really extreme and if johnson says this is off the table on animal welfare says no we won't accept chlorinated chicken donald trump could get straight on the phone and tweet thatjohnson is not someone phone and tweet thatjohnson is not someone he could do any work with. it is going to be a really tough one for borisjohnson it is going to be a really tough one for boris johnson because it is going to be a really tough one for borisjohnson because on one side he needs to buddy up with donald trump and keep that come he's trying to solidify a relationship which as you mentioned he has already started, he was to have a warm relationship with donald trump to get a poster brexit deal with the us. on the other hand feels a little bit like the moment of the european union very anti—russia, trump is pretty pro—russia and feels against
10:45 pm
one against the other at the moment. and boris it, it feels as if he has to pick a side and he's trying to walk that tight rope between them obviously does not want to enrage the european union at this very crucial juncture the european union at this very crucialjuncture in the european union at this very crucial juncture in his the european union at this very crucialjuncture in his brain brexit negotiations, but he cannot enrage donald trump either. it's going to bea donald trump either. it's going to be a really difficult one for him and he will have to play that charm hard. , he will have to try that of the next 2a hours in the times front page mentions the nhs not being up for grabs page mentions the nhs not being up for grastohnson page mentions the nhs not being up for grabs johnson will have page mentions the nhs not being up for grastohnson will have to tell trump. there's also talks about the trade deal that boris johnson trump. there's also talks about the trade deal that borisjohnson is really going to be talking about with donald trump. it says here that the hope is that they could come up with the trade deal within a year of leaving the eu. really all we have heard about the last few years as trade deals don't happen that quickly. so where's the line coming from? more from borisjohnson? quickly. so where's the line coming
10:46 pm
from? more from boris johnson? yes, it's a strange briefing. the most applicable president who could possibly say, who knows what donald trump will do, a week let alone a year. a very strange timeline to put down in writing and sound like a downing street briefing to me. down in writing and sound like a downing street briefing to mem seems as though with these kind of briefings saying there will be trade deals within this timeframe he is trying to move the conversation on, so all we have heard in this the is johnson saying we will leave the ebukam we will definitely be out by this time period and he is trying to move it on a little bit further saying we will definitely leave and there will be trade deals. it's interesting earlier in the week, so it was tweeted a widely marked photo of her on the phone supposedly thrashing out a japan trade deal, for that they are trying to move that on, but the thing i found most interesting about the time story was that dominic's was senior adviser had said to be warning aids that
10:47 pm
angela merkel would not be pretty and's saviour pointing out she did not rescue david cameron or teresa may because there's a lot of expectation management as well saying that nothing has changed. expectation management as well saying that nothing has changedm also says mrjohnson is preparing to tell donald tusk, of course, the european council president that he must open talks of the backstop. european council president that he must open talks of the backstopli think that's quite interesting. we have seen come in the last week, although angela merkel will not be the saviour, her language on with opening the agreement has been a lot softer than donald's i think he does have a point here and negotiation power with tosca now. i think the letter to task will be pretty powerful, really but with emmanuel macron and definitely angela merkel shifting ground. it's move on from
10:48 pm
that and into a story in the daily mail. car park shark still pray on cancer patients this is five years after they urged hospitals to provide free parking. half a decade now and it's really terrible story and people are extremely ill, cancer patients, people with kidney dialysis, people who are terminally ill, people who have to spend a lot of time in hospital at the parking themselves or their relatives are spending a lot of moneyjust to go and see them. what i did not understand what this story is it's notjust understand what this story is it's not just parking understand what this story is it's notjust parking charges, it's that if someone fails to pay their parking fine and they get swooped on by sharks the same way that if you don't pay, it's like a bailiff for car parks. they come after you. the finesjust so car parks. they come after you. the fines just so up car parks. they come after you. the finesjust so up and up and up, and it's incredibly stressful situation, they are getting big fines up and up and there's no way out for them. the
10:49 pm
syste m and there's no way out for them. the system that is so clearly not working, and i don't quite understand how it is being allowed to go on. as rajesh suggestion on how it needs to be addressed in the article? rubber is a tory minister, been competing on this for a long time and saying one of the biggest problems is that it has been widely sourced and hospitals are definitely trying to recoup money but is not working, there's a very similar problem with prescription charges, and lots of people are entitled to free prescriptions, and the body that deal with prescription charges often send out letters to people who, myself included who are entitled to free prescriptions, i got a letter the other day saying out have to pay a fine of £100 because i had incorrectly taken everyone, it's outsourced and yeah. i have appealed it and i've had five of these letters, but i spoke to a
10:50 pm
woman who had, she was entitled to free prescriptions because she was pregnant and miscarried a couple of weeks later, and because she never got hurt your ticket through because she miscarried she was faced with these £100 fine, and there is no connection with the people in the humanity has been pulled away at some point. moving onto independent, this dramatic picture of the burning of the amazon in the global outcry the headline there in the destruction of the rain forest of this is with fires of 85% of the amazon year and jair bolsonaro saying he is not to blame for the blazes, they do have the resources to put them out but now it is going to put them out but now it is going to be top of the agenda of the g7 tomorrow. the horrible, shocking story. i don't think that he is taking the right approach, emmanuel macron set our house is burning which definitely too jair bolsonaro
10:51 pm
said pretty condescending. it may be imperialist. that's what he said to jair bolsonaro. and i can see where he's coming from. the people who live in the area think of the amazon as theirs. but as a legitimate viewpoint and you can understand why. their house really is burning so why. their house really is burning so emmanuel macron coming in with out so emmanuel macron coming in with our house is burning but it provides 20% of the auction on the planet. he has enraged jair bolsonaro and that's not the way to go at all, i messily mistrusts a lot of eu leaders and the only global leader he trusts is donald trump who could probably fix this problem if he turned his mind to it. the us is the country that has there not only resources but expertise to deal with theseissues resources but expertise to deal with these issues in a very literal sense with a burning rate for us to get the same thing happens in california. the us has the wherewithal to deal with this and trump could step in at any point. i'm not sure if the global outcry
10:52 pm
from european leaders is getting quite the right message. what is your view of this threat to scupper this trade deal between south american countries and the eu if they don't do something about it? is that the right attitude or approach? have to be a lot harder thanjair bolsonaro than they are at the moment. trump is unlikely to do anything approaching anything that could stop this from happening. jair bolsonaro talked when he was during the election about possible deforestation in the amazon and when it comes to latin america, america more than happy to constantly apply sanctions to governments that are headed by left leaders but never when it comes to write leaders. and both the jair bolsonaro is one of the farthest right leaders in the world, he is literally threatening the future of humanity. and he has
10:53 pm
talked extensively about deforestation of the rain forests, andi deforestation of the rain forests, and i think people need to be a lot harder on him. the conservatives we re harder on him. the conservatives were tweeting today about happily meeting brazilian business ministers and possible trade deals with them, but do we really want to make trade deals with people who are threatening the future of the planet? we will see what comes out of the g7. let's move onto the front page of the daily mail. their head like a page of the daily mail. their head likea hrt page of the daily mail. their head like a hrt crisis as patches run out on the high street. strange thing about this story is there's not really an explanation in the daily mail about why this is happening. something in the supply chain in china, doesn't seem to be anything to do with brakes as far as can gather. it's very worrying and something i did not quite realise how important hrt is two women, middle—aged women, i had no idea of
10:54 pm
the side effects of not taking it. yes, it is around two thirds of these treatments have been hit by these treatments have been hit by the shortage is so huge numbers they are. it's essentially a domino effects so there were problems in china where there were not as many pages being made as needed and that meant that gps prescribed other brands women had to change and we have now got within flying out to spain and buying it over—the—counter. spain and buying it over-the-counter. that you should think their supply problem here in the uk. but is not to do with brexit. it's a domino effect that where essentially he jumped brand get a stockpile. and there's been lots of problems with the nhs managing to get enough drugs so i have epilepsy and for the last three yea rs have epilepsy and for the last three years ago to the pharmacist and the pharmacist gives me a week or weeks
10:55 pm
and pharmacist gives me a week or weeks a nd co nsta ntly pharmacist gives me a week or weeks and constantly been giving iou slips and constantly been giving iou slips and habits with all sorts of things that you need with diabetes like the testing strips and needles and all sorts. it seems as if before bryce even happened supply chains were very precarious and who knows what will happen once we actually have to think a lot about it. and in the worry about breaks is not helping because the stockpile because they hear rumours about supply chains that make the problem worse. they're already stuck probably because of a possible note deal brexit. that's it for the papers this hour. dawn and olivia will be back at 11:30pm for another look at the papers, and don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — 7 days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. from us all for now. goodbye. thank you for watching.
10:56 pm
hello there, it was 28 degrees and hold today making it the warmest day of august so far. but it could turn into a record breaking bank holiday weekend. a lot of summer to come this weekend we are drawing in our heat from the south, but saw a cloud around us, that has been affecting more northwest parts of the uk and so brings the chance of some showers continuing overnight. but over he will be coming in from the south, not only are we going to be fighting temperatures rising but turning more humid as well. it brings the threats of one or two showers. showers of the moment affection northwest of scotla nd the moment affection northwest of scotland did not affect in the north of ireland. the breeze will use the northwest and the clear skies
10:57 pm
temperatures 11 to 1a degrees. high pressures sitting across these parts of europe and with that position we are starting to draw in this heat around the area of high pressure and pushing it north. but we still have that weather front, and the area of cloud affecting northwest of scotla nd cloud affecting northwest of scotland and for the highlands in ireland and elsewhere sunshine, blue skies and light winds and that he 12 builds very quickly. warm across maurice or parts of the island is the central belts and the highest temperatures across england and wales the high 20s, may be 30 and around the london area. less clout on sunday than earlier thought so it's probably going to be dry and that heat is pushing its way for the north to scotland with more sunshine here, but again the highest temperatures towards the southeast could get 32 degrees. as we head into monday increasing uncertainty because the showers are not far away we could get some of those, also
10:58 pm
rain bow to the northwest, but it looks now that the risk of showers is reduced because there's less clout in the forecast, and that rain look sick it's going to stay to the northwest of the uk, so we keep the dry weather going to keep more heat as well. focus shouldst the midlands with the highest temperatures in the southeast, could be close to 30 degrees as we head further into our next week we're going to start to see that rain northwest pushing down to scotland struggling to make inroads and it looks like here at the warmth will continue, not quite as hot as over the weekend but still likely to be into the high 20s in the southeast of england.
10:59 pm
11:00 pm
this is bbc news. the headlines at 11:00: international dismay as the amazon rainforest burns — and condemnation of brazil's leader, accused of not doing enough to stop it happening. on the ground, the battle to stop the fires continue. low humidity and strong wind adds to the challenge is sometimes the fire can spread as fast 30 or a0 kilometres an hour. a minute's silence for pc andrew harper — who died in the line of duty. tributes to the thames valley officer who'd been married just four weeks when he died. president trump vows to retaliate — after china announces plans to escalate the trade war. atoning for the past — glasgow university is to raise millions in acknowledgement of the profits it made from the slave trade.
