tv The Papers BBC News January 22, 2020 11:30pm-12:01am GMT
hello. this is bbc news with rachel schofield. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment — first, the headlines: the chinese city at the heart of a public health crisis is shutting its public transport network to try to prevent the spead of a virus which has killed 17 people. experts around the world are assessing the risks posed by the virus as they consider declaring it an international public health emergency. the government's plans to tax the uk profits of big tech companies cause more tension between britain and the usa. the third impeachment trial in us history is underway
with democrats putting forward their arguments in the case against president trump. un experts say there's credible evidence that a phone belonging to the amazon founderjeff bezos was hacked on behalf of the saudi crown prince, and are demanding an investigation. now you listen here. he's not the messiah — he's a very naughty boy! tributes have been paid to the monty python star terryjones who has died at the age of 77. he had been suffering from dementia. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are asa bennett, the telegraph's brexit commissioning editor and sienna rodgers the editor of the labour list website. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. there's a picture of the late
but the paper's lead concerns the coronavirus story. the guardian follows up it's story yesterday about the jeff bezos phone—hacking allegations. it also carries a very smiley prince charles and greta thunberg in davos. the times covers the trade tensions between the uk and united states — over the british government's new tax plans for tech firms. they have another great picture of terryjones. the sun claims the deadly coronavirus may have already spread to the uk. they call it a "snake bug". the daily mail says british officials are "facing questions"over their response to the virus. the express reports borisjohnson hinted at a budget tax cut during an online question—and—answer session. the mirror devotes much of its front page to terryjones, and a tribute by his friend michael palin.
as you can see, a as you can see, a range as you can see, a range of stories. powerful pictures on this occasion. we will start with the times. their lead stories about trouble between the uk and the us. there is trouble affecting the special relationship. borisjohnson affecting the special relationship. boris johnson wants to affecting the special relationship. borisjohnson wants to hit various us firms like facebook, and google with a so—called tech tax and as well as this he doesn't want to be in the iranian nuclear deal and on top of that, he wants huawei involved in 56 provision in a limited point around the uk. the us does not agree on any of these and is threatened all sorts of reaction. the least controversial ironically is iran because borisjohnson has managed to almost sued the white house by suggesting the deal would be rebranded the trump deal. in the white house is tweeted saying,
excellent. with davos, threats by contrast that they won't co—operate on intelligence sharing if they let huawei in, fears of chinese intervention and international security infrastructure. meanwhile, the us treasury secretary. steve mnuchin, says they might come back with tariffs on the us car ——uk car industry. in this post brexit era, the uk doesn't really want to be cheesy of the united states. at a time when the chancellor is saying there won't be such a close relationship with the eu are putting out the stories all the time saying there is not going to be much alignment, you're putting all your eggsin alignment, you're putting all your eggs in the basket of the us but you have these huge battles that just seem a have these huge battles that just seem a little bit unresolvable at the moment. to say that the us has branded this madness, the huawei plan and said it would limit
intelligence sharing. that is a serious threat and on the trade side, the car industry, we will put tariffs on that and harm the uk in that way. it's difficult because the public year are very much of the opinion that facebook and google should pay their fair share. that issue about the tax is not to britain. france had been thinking about doing something similar. doesn't have to worry so much where is the uk is every political reason to get some sort of trade deal and admittedly trump has every reason to get some sort of deals so he can show his voters that he is delivering and he is respected internationally and getting results. obviously you've given the hoj hoj stuff, do you want chlorinated chicken, do you want to adapt your food standards? that could be something perhaps on services and the good stuff keeps going in
conversations so the good stuff keeps going in conversations so these are all fixable but the thing is when you look at things like this tax, obviously this is a stopgap head of an international response. there is every reason the government will have to continue with it but stressed that it's a temporary measure and they can move on from all this. what you think in terms of how seriously the uk should take trump's rhetoric because he does talk tough but we saw with china there was a lot of tough talk but in there was a lot of tough talk but in the end it's in his interests to get a deal. it is interesting. a new challenge, nurturing the special relationship. he changes his mind borisjohnson does relationship. he changes his mind boris johnson does take quite an interesting approach to him and he was saying, the iran nuclear deal should be replaced by trump deal. that is kind of feeding his ego a little bit in managing the relationship in quite a special way and a particular way that may be
borisjohnson and and a particular way that may be boris johnson and donald trump are quite similar in some ways. they may yet learn how to play each other and smooth each other‘s way. take us onto the daily express. boris johnson has been speaking about possible budget tax cuts, the headline very attention grabbing. obviously he's still going ahead the kind of twinning lines. he said where you have the ability to cut taxes, i want to do it to help working people on lower incomes. he is going for those so—called re nta ble is going for those so—called re ntable seats. is going for those so—called rentable seats. but he is talking about this blue—collar vote for the tories and they very much understand that those votes were let them many of those voters felt they were getting brexit done and they were approving a boris johnson the getting brexit done and they were approving a borisjohnson the prime minister but not the tory party. it is quite a temporary arrangement that we have here. he is constantly
looking forward to the next election so looking forward to the next election so that's why we are seeing these policies announced. interestingly by people's pm cues and after the official —— people's pm cues and after the official — — official people's pm cues and after the official —— official pmq 's. people's pm cues and after the official -- official pmq 's. he can free rome. you can free lance and talk about tax and what sort of shampoo to see use. he has no idea. it comes in a tube and it's blue. on the policy here, this will be front and centre of the first proper brexit budget. and so while cutting taxes down is a real sweetener, to the right people who reward the labour voters who have deserted jeremy corbyn, how does he paper at all? clearly on the way his sort of trying to do it is by taking the foot of the pedal in getting the deficit down, not bearing down so much on debt to almost adopt early labour inspired plan. the idea when
he used to call himself the brexit hezza, modelled on lord heseltine in a left—wing philosophy. what does the er g think of that? the tory are the er g think of that? the tory are the guardians of the natural right lame if they were to see authority —— austerity relaxed. now conservatives, they not to be hodgepodge. even though labour is often far left, adding lights about how it stays relevant for voters. we shall part that before sienna maybe ta kes shall part that before sienna maybe takes offence. but stay with you, asa. the daily mail is going beyond this new virus that's coming in from china. uk on killer virus alert. it's pretty strong stop. many of the papers are going full in on this. world war flew in the sun, the daily mail is similarly strident talking about the death toll doubling.
responsible courses of action for the nas and questions raised about what i british officials doing, some people complaining they just what i british officials doing, some people complaining theyjust got leaflets instead of detaining and pulling aside. having the temperature forcibly ta ken. pulling aside. having the temperature forcibly taken. they wa nted temperature forcibly taken. they wanted to see something done. ministers are being interviewed, saying it is low risk, let's be calm and responsible. isuppose saying it is low risk, let's be calm and responsible. i suppose this does speak to a desire to really seem to be getting on top of this because this is reminiscent of sars, and the worry about a pandemic epidemic. china has pretty much love down the releva nt china has pretty much love down the relevant province. you've seen the whole medical community kicking into action pretty fast. the details a lwa ys action pretty fast. the details always where you find out really happening. uk on killer virus alert,
do notjust read that. you need to read the rest of the story. 17 deaths. it's fairly low proportion and they do say that these people we re and they do say that these people were just given leaflets as they we re were just given leaflets as they were coming to the uk where as other countries, the us, malaysia and singapore and introduced tougher checks and they've been taking people's temperatures but there is a real danger here of making people far too anxious and kind of gearing up far too anxious and kind of gearing up that story. clearly there is not much brexit news. siena. take us to the times. we did the main story but a story about former speaker of the commonsjohn a story about former speaker of the commons john bercow who's a story about former speaker of the commonsjohn bercow who's been looking out for a peerage but his hopes may have suffered a potentially fatal blow. this was an interesting story over the weekend. john bercow was not nominated by a
peerage for the government and it is a break with resident and instead it was result reported thatjeremy corbyn had nominated him that was not only controversial because he had been seen as blocking rigid —— exit. there is not only that and what that message sensed a labour vote rs what that message sensed a labour voters who supported lieven may voted tory. but also the fact that he is plagued by allegations of complaints and esther whether who's written this story has worked on this very hard on for a long time. these accusations of being staff and is most senior former official has launched a bullying complaint. john be rcow launched a bullying complaint. john bercow is very keen to stress that he will say that timing of this intervention is curious that that's his take on the story so this is something that has been going on for a longtime and lots of people in westminster feel there has been this culture created in parliament of allegations of bullying not being
investigated properly and thoroughly because of partisan interests and now that maybe brexit is starting to be resolved, we consider change. it's stunning because the quote that sticks, a lot of people ask if he was fast on brexit and the real scandal has been the sort of scourge of bullying in parliament under his watch. many enquiries have said that he needed to leave in order for this to be properly cracked down on so when you see that even people like dame margaret becker for her, brexit trumps bad behaviour. that's why they turned a blind eye. he was doing the right things on brexit. it was just so opportunistic on their part. so someone who's been engaged very close up is lodging a complaint, it's not just very close up is lodging a complaint, it's notjust a matter of partisan or as to whether he will be in the house of lords of honour because his reputation is not
peerless. it's very much, questions can be raised about his conduct or whether he deserves to be there and not a matter of automatic fear. one that we should stress he has always denied any allegations of bullying. regarding the guardian is picking up the story. un demands enquiry into hacking of amazon boss. you couldn't make this up. absolutely extraordinary. the highest echelons of power, mohammed bin salman, the saudi crown prince, it's alleged by the un that whatsapp exchanges with one of the richest men in the world, jeff bezos, perhaps try to hack his phone and obtain details in a whatsapp message that he perhaps opened, spam practically and to be honest the main question that comes to my mind is if you have a tech genius likejeff to my mind is if you have a tech genius like jeff bezos to my mind is if you have a tech genius likejeff bezos having his
phone hacked, how can our phones? you think that he would be wise to all this if it did happen or not, the saudis tonight and say this is all absurd. if it did happen, the saudis tonight and say this is allabsurd. if it did happen, can my phone be safe? identical to cause hysteria. we know him as the richest man on the planet and amazon but he is the billionaire owner of the washington post and that is very much the core of the story with saudi arabia. it is interesting, it raises questions for whatsapp and reassuring users. that is another interesting aspect of the story and what operating system is bezos using on his phone? why was he not savvy?
and it took months before he realised the data was flying out. and there were maybe some sinister m essa 9 es and there were maybe some sinister messages about gossip leaking into the tabloids so this can run and run. the un are now getting involved so run. the un are now getting involved so it looks like we will have more on that. let's head over the other issues quickly. this one is for you, asa because brexit is your favourite place to be. this is not even on the front page! the telegraph has tucked away on the right side but doing it justice. and the house of lords this afternoon has given full assent so straight onto the law and this means brexit will happen. we know it will happen with a deal negotiated by borisjohnson. happen with a deal negotiated by boris johnson. and there he is in his colourful shorts breaking the line there. we can look forward to
other stories but it will not be about the bill, it will be about the deal. now, siana, we must touch on some of the wonderful pictures that remember terryjones who has passed away. the daily mirror going with michael palen's tribute and reminiscing about how painful the battle with dementia has been. he fought dementia with laughter until the end. there has been many humourous tweets remembering him in a way that we appreciate with comedy and liberty while appreciating the experience he went through in his final days and in the last few years. everyone, ithink, will be thinking of how we can remember him, certainly with some monty python tonight, maybe the life of brian. appreciating his work because it was brilliant. there is so much to
appreciate. for my part i hadn't realised what a polymath he was and what he did beyond his acting. quite a sense of humour, whether it is from that clip we played, you are not the messiah he is a very naughty boy. all from the meaning of life, mr creosote. i won't describe what happened to him because your viewers have good taste but you can see that online. it sticks in the mind. it was wild and wacky and a lot of fun. and there are many tributes to terry jones in many of the papers. and before we leave, let's turn to the times and, siana, this is to down the right—hand side that people will be fascinated. hair really can turn grey through stress! it is very
worrying, isn't it. i'm 25 and my friends are starting to get grey hairs. thejob insecurity in the friends are starting to get grey hairs. the job insecurity in the low play -- pay hairs. the job insecurity in the low play —— pay and spending our money on avocados or whatever we are accused of, it does cause a lot of stress. millennial‘s in particular are stressed and obsessed with work and i'm not surprised that our hair is turning grey as a result stop and they have done the science, the biology on this. it is fascinating and rigourous how they have done this. they are citing people such as barack obama. the prime minister is harassed or lusciously blonde but i will keep an eye on it. how great will keep an eye on it. how great will it get? we could use that as a barometerfor will it get? we could use that as a barometer for the success of brexit. now we have mentioned brexit more than enough. i think there is a good impressionist in you as well. let's milk that the next time you come in.
you can see —— 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. thank you, asa bennett and sienna rodgers. goodbye. good evening. here's your latest sports news. we'll start with the thrills and spills from the premier league tonight. manchester united fans were left with their head in their hands after burnley won 2—0 to record their first win at old trafford for 58 years. it was a better night for third placed leicester though, who returned to winning ways against west ham as adam wild reports.
dreams of a title challenge may have faded at leicester but the bright lights of the champions league are still in sight. to make certain they will need to find the form from earlier in the season. west and at home seemed a promising chance especially after the scoring was open. even an injury to jamie vardy could not quite dampen the mood, especially when ricardo smashed in a second before halftime. 2—0 and it was more than they deserved. west ham desperately needed something to go their way. and that came after the break. this was deemed a foul and va are agreed. so it was leicester who had the final word and almost came spectacularly from james madison. instead paras finished things off. first with a penalty and then with a measured finish. leicester, back to their best. with
the top four players looking more secure, manchester united remains in jeopardy. burnley beat leicester at the weekend and here they were looking to continue their good form. chris would's smart effort got them started at old trafford. j would regress's goal was brilliant. j rodriguez's goal. and they have seen enough this season to know when they have seen enough. a famous win for burnley and united's frustration goes on. tottenham won their first league game of the year, by beating bottom of the table norwich 2—1 at tottenham hotspur stadium. goals from dele alli and heung min—son sealing the three points. celtic still hold a slender lead over rangers at the top of the scottish premiership. both glasgow sides were in action this evening and both of them won. celtic were 3—1 winners at kilmarnock. a neat spin and finish from odson edward broke the deadlock. before leigh griffths and this towering header
from christopherjullian made it three and secured the victory for the champions. and the latest on the saracens saga is that premiership rugby will release the report into the clubs breaches of the salary cap. the north london club were given a £5 millon fine and were told last week that they would be relegated from the premiership as a result. after initally objecting — sarries now say they are keen for the full report to be published. well, seven members of the england squad play for saracens with the six nations starting next week. one of them is the captain, owen farrell, who was asked if he was concerned about any tension within the squad. we will see. what i do know is that they support us to be open and honest and to get it sorted. and if we do brilliant and if we don't, we
will get on with it. as far as england goes, how do you look ahead to the six nations championship. obviously a great world cup, disappointing in the final. what do you take from that going into six nations? it is obviously a big experience for us. we felt like we came along way during our time together, not just in came along way during our time together, notjust in the world cup but in the preparation before that. and we are excited now to see where we can take that. that's all the sport. there's plenty more on the bbc sport website. bye for now. wednesday was a cloudy day for most of us in the best of any sunshine was across eastern scotland and north—east england. mild into the afternoon especially north—east scotland. today looks like being another cloudy one with mist and fog around. we still have high pressure with us but low pressure pushes up from the south, low pressure moving into the north in this weather front
will bring rain to north—western scotland. for england and wales, some mist and fog could be dense in places, certainly through the morning before it lifts into low cloud. the odd patch of drizzle once again. best of the sunshine for north—east scotland and north—east england once again and will turn fairly mild. this weather front brings outbreaks of rain to the north—west of scotland so a heavy burst there are in fact. temperature wise, eight or nine degrees for most, could see i! and north—east of scotland. it pushes southwards and feels —— fizzles out. windy and showery for the northern isles but elsewhere through thursday night it will be another cloudy and largely frost free one. for friday, a similar picture once again, holding onto cloud, with mist and murkiness and drizzle in places. the wind for most of us will be light. but that is the last of those very cloudy days. we start to see a change in the weather as we move out of friday into saturday. i pressure begins to retreat towards the near continent and low pressure pushes in towards
the north—west. so with the breeze starting to pick up across scotland and northern ireland we will see some sunshine but also this weather front will bring rain to the hebrides and perhaps into the north—west mainland scotland later in the day. elsewhere, cloud around but because of breeze picking up we will see brightness here and there and the temperatures range from 7— 10 degrees. moving through saturday night, low pressure pushing across the country along with the weather front bring a band rang too many stop more isobars in the charts and on sunday it will be a windy day for us on sunday it will be a windy day for us all and we will have the weather front spreading eastwards with some patchy and heavy rain as it moves across england and wales. scotland and northern ireland, a day of north —— blustery showers and sunshine. we will see temperatures of 2— ii degrees in the south—east. heading into next week it remains unsettled early in the week with a deep low bringing a spell of gates and heavy
i'm rico hizon in singapore. the headlines: a city in lockdown. chinese officials say the people of wuhan cannot travel, as they try to contain the spread of a deadly virus. at the trump impeachment trial, the us senate hears the opening arguments, as the prosecution makes the case against the president. i'm kasia madera in london. also in the programme: judges at the international court are to rule on whether 600,000 rohingya muslims living in myanmar still face the threat of genocide. and the pakistani prime minister defends comparing the indian
