where he can do less inside the tent where he can do less damage. there has been talk that he might resign by the weekend? that seems to have filtered down. digby has a point about certain aspects of the media being overly critical about brexit but equally the other side, certain aspects... not critical so much as accentuate in the negative. let's have a quick look at the express, they are looking ahead to the big speech theresa may is going to make on friday in florence about brexit. and although it is in florence, which had a purple patch as a citystate being superseded by italy, i think your audience is really hurt domestic audience and she has to start excelling with the word called communication and she has to call this what it is. michel barnier will allow negotiation to progress if we give him £50 billion. but you will
10:46 pm
get stalled because we are not paying it. she has to talk in that sort of language for her domestic audience and she has to explain why we will and should pay around 20 billion because of the year's notice, coming out earlier. this is a sort of language you must start using so her domestic audience suddenly understands what is going oi'i. suddenly understands what is going on. while we are talking about theresa may, we can talk about what she has been saying at the un. some criticism of the united states and pulling out of the climate accord? castor mind back to her visit to donald trump when he had just won the presidency and they were holding hands and they seem to be close and now look. .. hands and they seem to be close and now look... she hands and they seem to be close and now look. .. she has hands and they seem to be close and now look... she has been one of the last state leaders to really put the boot into donald trump but she seems to be starting to do so, particularly as the guardian is
10:47 pm
centring on climate change. he has withdrawn from the paris agreement and other european leaders certainly are very disapproving of that and she seems to be joining their ranks in that speech to the united nations. america is our biggest inward investor, our biggest trading partner. and in a post—brexit world we need that agreement. does that mean she cannot afford to alienate oi’ mean she cannot afford to alienate or criticise donald trump? she can do what she has done which is guarded criticism and i applaud her budgie has to be more circumspect than angela merkel or emanuel macron because they don't need america as much as us. i admire what she has said and the way she said it. the metro has a story about ryanair which has been in the news all week. presumably every day they pray that another big story will pass them off
10:48 pm
the front pages! sadly, not so far. it isa the front pages! sadly, not so far. it is a scandal. yes, in a lot of cases it is only somebody‘s holiday. these are incredibly important moments, families are devastated, weddings ruined, people going abroad for operations and health reasons. man who has made a virtue of a thinking to charge for using the toilet and has charged for printing off your boarding pass and says if it isn't —— is within the 14 days i will compensate you and if not, i will compensate you and if not, i will not. huge disregard for the consumer. will not. huge disregard for the consumer. disgrace. another metro story says they are charging passengers who had to reboot. i suspect this is a case of the computer saying no. however, they should have recognised this was going to happen and make sure it did not. passengers are being charged again for extras they have already paid for such as checking in
10:49 pm
luggage? i am sure it probably is a clerical error caused by a database but it should not have happened. what part of look after your customer has mr 0'leary...? what part of look after your customer has mr 0'leary. . . ? the financial times, catalonia. they seem to be getting very tense, between madrid and the catalans? what concerns me and i think the ft! right to carry this on the front page and put the photograph in as well... this is going to be a problem because catalonia wants independence from spain and is a referendum on it, we have heard this before. and the establishment might very or fairly be accused of not wanting any of this to happen so because appears to be on rest, which you always get in divisive opinions, in go heavy— handed you always get in divisive opinions, in go heavy—handed police and suddenly, excuse, riots on the
10:50 pm
streets, we will cancel the referendum. it goes to the core of spain asa referendum. it goes to the core of spain as a big player in europe, 40 million people, spain as a child when it comes to democracy. i say that with great admiration. it has not been around spain for more than 40 years. therefore it is very important to us and everybody that they allow the exercise of democracy and honour the result. technically, the sort of referendum on independence is illegal in spain? that is what the madrid government says. barcelona and the catalans we re says. barcelona and the catalans were given more autonomy a number of yea rs were given more autonomy a number of years ago and they say that gave him the right to call a referendum and madrid says it does not, you referendum is illegal. they held a referendum is illegal. they held a referendum in 2014 but only 2.2 out of 5.4 million turned out so that was deemed null and void so they are
10:51 pm
trying for another one which they believe will have a higher turnout. although scotland can choose to have a referendum, westminster can overrule it? let's move on! another question of democracy... the house of lords, lord digbyjones... are you part of this alleged scandal in the daily mirror where taxpayers are forking out £1.2 million to 115 peers who did not speak once during any debate for a year? they have not paid me any of that but am i1 of those who did not speak, yes, i am. have i listened to debates and use that information and being in the lords and in the chamber doing lots of different things? you bet. my upside of this, i do think we should all be held to account but the downside is please do not think that lords who do not speak... i have sat ina debate, lords who do not speak... i have sat in a debate, 30 speeches, one after
10:52 pm
the other, talking about the same subject in the same way, and to me, i would rather not take part in that. it is rather a blunt instrument to see whether you are getting value for money. in an average debate or day in the lords, how many peers would speak? ever was a debate of two hours, 20, 25? more importantly, they recite the same stuff the party whips have given them and they say it all the time andi them and they say it all the time and i sometimes think, this is barmy! but i am one of those 115. daisy, the i, interesting story about possibly a new cycle in charge following the recent court case? about possibly a new cycle in charge following the recent court case ?|j hope this is true because we know the case, kim briggs, the lady knocked over by charlie the 18—year—old driving his illegal b i cycle. 18—year—old driving his illegal bicycle. not only was this illegal, it should not have been sold to be driven on a public highway, it
10:53 pm
should only have been for a velodrome or racing track. when the court case came into being, he could not be charged under the dangerous driving laws because dangerous driving laws because dangerous driving has been mechanised and bicycles are driving has been mechanised and bicycles a re not driving has been mechanised and bicycles are not so he had to be charged under this 150—year—old law... furious driving, i think it was. which brought a much more lenient custodial sentence, two yea rs lenient custodial sentence, two years rather than 14. i hope this is true. and the other thing that kim briggs' husband has been trying to do, careers, a lot of careers allegedly used his illegal bicycles and he says that the companies should be held responsible and should be held responsible and should not employ anybody driving on an illegal bicycle and that seems so logical i cannot believe it is not the case already. i hope we are pushing the operation into using cycles pushing the operation into using cycle s m ore pushing the operation into using cycles more for fitness and pollution and the rest but it is
10:54 pm
time to regulate it. and they do go very fast, potentially finally... the end of nigel? the sun, nearing extinction? there was not a single nigel registered as a first name last year and they put some of those up, nigel lawson, nigel haver 's, nigel farage, nigel kennedy... nigel mansell. that's enough! what amazed me is 18 people last year actually gave their son christian name or first name of corbyn! but there were also 22 digbys! more than 2000 ten three! my mother told herfather she was going to call me daisy it was very unusual and he was a major general and he said you cannot, only
10:55 pm
maids, mistresses and cows are called daisy! that is a contradiction in terms! membership to digby, 22! after the triumph of nigel farage, you would have thought lots of people would name their children nigel? this might be rather unkind but a lot of people who hero worship nigel farage are not having babies at the moment. they are not quite that generation. that's a controversial point! there would be a lot more dogs called digby than ten three! oliver and olivia with the most common. what is going on with olives? daisy and digby, we
10:56 pm
love your names and are very pleased to have the studio. 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, daisy mcandrew and lord digbyjones. goodbye. at its best was not much wrong with wednesday, there was a fair amount of cloud eventually but quite a bit of cloud eventually but quite a bit of dry weather as well. provided you we re of dry weather as well. provided you were not too close to a weather front because generally speaking the further and west you were the more likely it is the card was going to fill in and there was a fair bit of rain to be had. that prospect
10:57 pm
continues tonight because a weather front will be very slow—moving. i am running the clock. that is just how slow—moving that is. given that, over higher ground in the south—west of scotla nd over higher ground in the south—west of scotland we could see 40 millimetres of rain on what is not a cold night so not a particularly chilly start to the new day on thursday. a very miserable one for the greater part of mainland scotla nd the greater part of mainland scotland and also the shetland isles and as we work our way further south, brightness getting in towards the far west of northern ireland, the far west of northern ireland, the shape of things to come there. cloud and dry weather for much of the east midlands and east anglia and the south—east and back towards and the south—east and back towards a weather front, this and the south—east and back towards a weatherfront, this is and the south—east and back towards a weather front, this is where we thicken the cloud, fresh and the winds as well and there will be a fairly danced at all the way from the south—west to the west midlands, wales into the north—west of england and beyond. here we are in the middle part of the afternoon, we can see what progress this front has made, it allows the west side of scotla nd made, it allows the west side of
10:58 pm
scotland and northern ireland to brighten up, similar prospect eventually for a west wales and the south—west and it never really isn't bothered for east anglia and the south—east until later on into the evening. that is how slow—moving this weather front is. it doesn't even complete this journey away from the small hours of friday, only to make room for yet more cloud and wind and rain to move back in as another set of clubs become a bother. further south and east, pleasant, temperatures around 19. as you push that of into the north sea, just in time for the weekend, we have this big area of low pressure and high pressure over the continent tends to keep the frontal systems and be or if they make any progress, they tend to weaken. the weekend is shaping up to be a breezy one, a lot of cloud around also. but not too much in the way of rain. this is bbc news, the headlines at 11: rescue workers in mexico search desperately for survivors
10:59 pm
of an earthquake that's killed at least 200 people. the second major hurricane to hit the caribbean this month has damaged the us territory of puerto rico. at the united nations, theresa may urges internet firms to 'go further and faster‘ to stop the spread of terrorist material online. and we speak live to the refugee wanting a contempt of court action against the home office and to russell brand on addiction, apathy and promiscuity.
