10:30 pm
this is bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment — first the headlines. a conservative—led council in northamptonshire which has imposed emergency spending controls has said it has been warning ministers for years about its financial problems. six migrants have been injured after a man opened fire from a car in the central italian city of macerata. the gunman has been arrested. it has emerged tonight that two more women have reported harvey weinstein to the met police over allegations of sexual assault. after getting caught in a scuffle with protesters last night, jacob rees—mogg has stepped up his attack on the treasury, accusing civil servants of "fiddling the figures" on brexit. on meet the author next week, # today, my guess is leo benedictus
10:31 pm
with his book that starts off as a creepy thriller and then turns into a contemporary horror story. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. to what the the papers will be with me are economics commentator and author dharshini david and broadcaster and former fleet street editor eve pollard. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the observer leads on comments from a former head of the civil service, who makes a scathing comparison between some brexiteers and german nationalists between the world wars. theresa may faces a coup from cabinet brexiteers, if she persists with plans to remain in the customs union, according to the sunday times. the sunday telegraph leads on the prime minister being urged to invoke the example of margaret thatcher to defy her chancellor over brexit. the express accusesjeremy corbyn
10:32 pm
of environmental hypocrisy, claiming he left a diesel car waiting outside his house for a0 minutes before getting in for a six—mile trip to westminster. meanwhile, the mirror has an image of the health secretary, jeremy hunt, taking a nap in a hotel, which the paper claims was taken while thousands marched through london calling for more nhs support. let's start with the times. as you would expect, an awful lot of brexit stories going on. not a massive surprise considering what is happening next week. we might get to a crunch moment when members of the cabinet have to decide what form of relationship they want with e you afterwards. let's start with the
10:33 pm
sunday times story. depending on how you look at it, the dream team are set to go into number ten. boris johnson, michael gove and jacob read more. what you make of that. interesting, a lovely mock—up picture of them as the three musketeers. it is looking like all—out war. they will start discussing what the trade relationship will look like. interesting whether they come up with anything as a result. probably nothing. we are looking at the biggest risk to theresa may's prime minister ship. it looks like they
10:34 pm
will have to make decisions. it is impossible to square those two views. i also think that this happened in davos because in the end, the sharp point of all this is going to be business and businessmen who are, i'm afraid mostly men, a few women, who will have to work and still making a living if we can't export to the eu. and in davos, trump, for all his many extraordinary abilities, like tweeting from dusk to dawn, invited a lot of european companies to dinner. he walked around and shook their hand and asked them what they could do with united states. theresa may had dinner with her aides. the whole point is to go and whip up trade. there was this trip going to
10:35 pm
china, which was fascinating. china has an enormous population and could change the world for britain if we got down to it seriously. it looks like there are figures coming out, leaked by various people. we know that the figures you get out are as good as the figures you put in. we are being kept in the dark. there is are being kept in the dark. there is a frustration that things are not more open. i was for staying in, not being the first to come out. i am no love of the youth. but now that we have made the decision, we have to get on. —— i have made the decision, we have to get on. —— lam no have made the decision, we have to get on. —— i am no lover of the have made the decision, we have to get on. —— lam no lover of the eu. we would have to keep people in jobs, key factor is going. at the moment, we sell everything to ve you, what we're going to do? the main thing is the customs union. the
10:36 pm
international trade secretary says that he will resign if the customs union is agreed. but mainly because hisjob is to drum up trade. and he would not build today that with other countries. exactly. it is more complex, if we stay in the customs union, we will have to make sacrifices regarding free movement of people. it is not mentioned on these pages that immigration is the key factor. the whole idea of trade, at davos it was noticeable that you saw the prime minister of india and trump's delegation touting for business, everywhere was open for business. not the uk. this strange position that theresa may is thinking i have to keep the eu happy and on the other hand, i have all these brexiteers snapping at my heels. and there are very noisy brexiteers, some of them very able,
10:37 pm
but i have no idea how many of the tories in the house of commons pro brexit or not. but we have voted. everything seems to be so secretive. let's see the figures. then let the brexiteers, these three brilliant men, say what is wrong with the figures and what is should be done rather thanjust having figures and what is should be done rather than just having a figures and what is should be done rather thanjust having a go at figures and what is should be done rather than just having a go at all treasury economists. another brexit story here. brexit attacks on civil service worthy of 19305 attacks on civil service worthy of 1930s germany. jacob rees mogg has accused the civil service of only leaking memos which show that we should stay in the customs union. the ex—cabinet secretary making the comparison with knotty germany. pretty incredible stuff. it must be quite frustrating if you are a politician and you deal with an
10:38 pm
unwieldy, slow civil service. and when they come up with figures that you don't agree with. i think going to 1930s knotty germany is rather strange and over the top. but obviously, —— strange and over the top. but obviously, "1930s strange and over the top. but obviously, —— 1930s nazi germany. but obviously, this is the week that will decide. theresa may says this isa will decide. theresa may says this is a negotiation and you don't tell everybody what your bottom line is. but there have to comment point where you show leadership and show some parameters and there is a vacuum. and unfortunately for her, we are used to 24—hour news. we are used to things happening quickly. we have been going on about this for ever and we have been going on about this for everand we are have been going on about this for ever and we are impatient. wrongly all rightly. there are impact
10:39 pm
studies, let usjudge. ratherthan jacob rees mogg, the man who might be chancellor, complaining. and where are the cbi on this? talking to the chancellor. the sunday telegraph says, don't let hammond ruined brexit. this is philip hammond, the main remain a voice in the cabinets. people are saying they have to stand up to him. but he may be talking to the cbi who are saying that if we walk away, we don't know where we will sell our goods, we don't know if factories will close down. this can't be done without that other side, which is business. ultimately, it is all about business and livelihoods. but one about business and livelihoods. but u about business and livelihoods. but one group want to go alone and do it in isolation. do you sing she was sako chancellor? she might, but i
10:40 pm
get nowhere that will get her. that's this is about the facade and how it looks, or perhaps it is about indecision or being 50—50 in a situation when you can't decide. another story in the sunday telegraph. women given cancer all clear misdiagnosed by test blunders. that is the kind of story that makes people fearful. you go for those test and you assume that they are getting a clean bill of health. what is the story here, dharshini? this is the story here, dharshini? this is worrying. 900 sample check for sir michael cancer. and a percentage of those had been cleared, people told they were negative and in fact there was something. something not quite right about them. but this lab in basildon, people are now saying that they will have to investigate
10:41 pm
the results of 60,000 women. that's terrible. and they are trying to encourage younger women to go for some ears and the idea... and truth is, if you ask most women who have had a dodgy smear test, most women have. you need to go back and to check. and it's hard to get a test in the first place, to persuade your gp. and the relief of somebody saying you are ok, and then you discover your not. i can't understand how they can be so inept. let's have a look at the times. this is, women's refuges may get transgender staff. this is, women's refuges may get tra nsgender staff. this sounds similartoa tra nsgender staff. this sounds similar to a story about a woman who complained that she asked for a seen a member of staff and somebody was a transgender member of staff.
10:42 pm
potentially rape and abuse victims in women's refuges and this is the story about whether tra nsgender people will be able to deal with women who have been the victim of violence from men. the fact that you have gone to a refuge. arda and so old i can remember when the first women's refuge was open. i remember sitting there with ten women and they told what they had gone through. and to actually pick up and ta ke through. and to actually pick up and take almost nothing with you, often they have fled in the middle of the night when their husband was out when he was drunk and they thought she would wake up, to actually leave and go to the refuge is a big thing. and i think the idea of not being looked after by women is quite scary. i'm sympathetic to transgender people, but this is one case where you actually want the
10:43 pm
opposite of the person who has abused you. and it is a balance between equality and sensitivity to transgender people. and this isjust a review of the policy. let's move on to the sunday telegraph. uma thurman, on the front of lots of sunday papers because she is alleging that harvey weinstein attacked her as well. we should say here that he has said he is considering legal action following uma thurman's allegations, according to his attorney. they are saying that mr weinstein is stunned and saddened by what he claims to be false accusations. this carries on, we have heard two more women are leading against him in this country as well. quite a long interview she has given with the new york times went goes into detail over what
10:44 pm
happens over a number of years. she said this happened before she made el bill. and she says that perhaps her agency may have been in some ways complicit in all this and she feels something about the fact that she didn't speak out and there are other girls or women. some people will say wide and she speak out before? and i'm told that harvey weinstein hasa before? and i'm told that harvey weinstein has a lot of e—mails from women who have accused him saying, glad to see you harvey, i will see you for my screen test next week. she then carried on making films with him, which i find extraordinary. because she is not a new girl on the block. if she was an 18—year—old looking., new girl on the block. if she was an 18—year—old looking. , we new girl on the block. if she was an 18—year—old looking., we understand how this thing works. she is uma thurman and then she carries on working the man who she says has behaved so badly. i haven't read the new york times interview but it is
10:45 pm
extraordinary. and of course, the agency is probably guessed things we re agency is probably guessed things were going on because of gossip. it's a small community in hollywood. but she is complicit if she carried on working. but on the other hand, she talks about things that she went through on l bale, that quentin tarantino made a drive
