step down for these old to step down for those old allegations made against him at save the children. he says is no doubt in my mind that some of the allegations are an attempt to do damage for the case for a. —— for aid. are an attempt to do damage for the case fora. —— foraid. the are an attempt to do damage for the case for a. —— for aid. the reason he is leaving is not to continue to damage it. controversial. seriously? is believable he is saying these things. don't forget these allegations only became apparent this week when three women spoke to the bbc‘s pm programme about allegations about his behaviour in 2011, 20 15. allegations about his behaviour in 2011, 2015. that then emerged and then yesterday tory politicians and a piece i wrote for the telegraph yesterday. people like paul eunan o'kane to have a go at save the children or the aid budget or unicef, they are looking at the guys
10:46 pm
behaviour and saying why is it appropriate for him to have a senior role at unicef? looking at the ongoing oxfam story, this time it is he the deciding the cannot continue to operate while they continue their investigation. this is a different story about charities going back to the way that oxfam has not said that some of its aid workers were behaving badly towards beneficiaries in haiti. it emerged recently. behaving badly towards beneficiaries in haiti. it emerged recentlym was sexual exploitation. yes. it is haiti correctly saying to oxfam you're not welcome here if that is how you will behave. they had to not only apologise to their donors and to mps and to the department who give them cash, but they said that they have gone and made representations of the government of haiti and they have decided this is the best course of action to take.
10:47 pm
let's move on to the financial times. this is university lecturers taking strike action because they are concerned because of changes to pension they will be losing out tens of thousands of pounds a year, but of thousands of pounds a year, but of course it means that students will not get hot. it's all happening in the world of universities. this is another issue about the vice chancellors who are paid megabucks. —— students will not get hot. chancellors who are paid megabucks. -- students will not get hot. this isa -- students will not get hot. this is a reform pushed by vice chancellors, which perhaps wasn't politically the greatest... students are paying through the nose for a student fees. they announced a reform about fees, but it is an issue. durham newcastle and kent have said we need to find a
10:48 pm
resolution about them. the head of newcastle said we think that a lot of these people striking have got a point and perhaps we need to rethink this. it looks that there is room for a new verse there, but there are more strikes planned and plans to extend action into june more strikes planned and plans to extend action intojune which more strikes planned and plans to extend action into june which would be potentially over exams, so it is quite serious. the average vice traveller is paid ten grand is up in a year. big—money even for the bbc. —— vice chancellor is paid £240,000. some students are acting for a refu nd some students are acting for a refund on their tuition. why not? it is a market. if you are planning money. why not? i think the government should encourage students
10:49 pm
to get a refund from a university that doesn't give them education. it isa that doesn't give them education. it is a market. get your money back. there was some polling that came out this afternoon about it and most students said they are fully supportive of it, they see that it is quite an insecure job with people oi'i is quite an insecure job with people on short—term contracts and i think it takes quite a long time for that to bea it takes quite a long time for that to be a secure profession. certainly not a well—paid profession and students have sympathy. the vice chancellor will eat it if they get refunds on courses. —— hate it. but like this is a misleading headline. 130,000 people going home. the highest level for a decade. yes, you might think from that headline that migration to the uk is going down, but it's not. it actually has gone up. net migration for non—eu
10:50 pm
countries went up by 40,000 over the same period. net migration is roughly about 240,000. that is about coventry. an extra commentary. that is 2.5 times over what the government would like to be when they said that net migration should be in the tens of thousands. you might have thought they might want to say another coventry has arrived but instead they are reassuring them they are going on. this is about the difference between eu and non—eu migrants. there has always been the option to stop non—eu migrants but we haven't because the skills are required. i think this should be a real cause for concern, the fact that there are so many eu migrants who have clearly decided that their future doesn't lie in this country, maybe they don't feel welcome in
10:51 pm
this country, and they have skills that we need, particularly in hospitals. i think... that we need, particularly in hospitals. ithink... i don't that we need, particularly in hospitals. i think... i don't think this is something we should be proud of. if they remain here, they can get a british passport. it is a shame they are going home. i have my own views as well as the paper's views. i think it must be... it's notjust views. i think it must be... it's not just about your general rates to say any place, is it, it's about do you feel like this places the welcoming place for you, is it a home for you? you might be able to have your rights, but perhaps people feel this is fundamental. i think it's not surprising that quite a few people might. quite a lot of people are still coming. to a lot of people it so attractive. a lot of students in particular. paying huge fees to universities. it's so circular. the

huffington post. meghan markle and prince harry's suspicious substance skier treated as hate crime. the white powder about to be toxic, tha nkfully white powder about to be toxic, thankfully it was harmless, but still very chilling when it arrives. quite, and it shows that the happy bubble around this couple before they get married in spring which is wonderful and they have chewed up the papers in this grim february, there are always threats to high—profile individuals. it seems it was a race hate crime, because meghan markle is from a mixed race background, is about is why they are saying that. it was a similar package delivered to the house of commons. it was delivered to the home secretary, amber rudd. it caused quite a kerfuffle dancers in the corridor when a package arrived. there was a lot of police around. ——

10:54 pm
behind this idea of single use. 40 mps have given up using plastic relent. michael gove seems to view this as somewhat of a personal crusade. it's a great story and will be interesting to see... he is one of the few ministers in government doing stuff. you may not agree with him, you may not... but what about brexit? we are getting sovereignty back of this country, what is going to be different? here is in example ofa to be different? here is in example of a good thing. i am thinking about buying an old school one might you would have had in your cocktail table. will you have a strength for cocktails? yes, any time. we cannot drink in here. finally, where ari?
10:55 pm
who are we looking at? i couldn't work out which camera i was on. the daily mirror. children waiting for transplants or having had transplants or having had transplants urging mps to vote in favour of this idea of opting out of being an ordained owner rather than opting in. this should be a really crucial moments tomorrow when mps vote on matters and it's something the prime minister in her speech said she would support it and it is quickly radical move meaning you don't have to carry those organ donor cards any more, you don't have to take those boxes when you fill in forms. it will be that you are automatically opted in rather than... you need to say when you wa nt than... you need to say when you want to opt out. great idea. it will go through tomorrow in the commons, causing panic at the mirror, because theresa may backed their campaign. they hate it. that is cognitive

dreary week of weather so far for many of us, hasn't it, but we will see a little bit more anyway of sunshine heading towards the weekend. you can see by the weather watchers pictures sent in from the scottish borders. after a dreary old start in the south east, the cloud broke up and we had spells of sunshine. continuing to see clear skies through the evening, but under clear skies this time of year that only means one thing, widespread frost is likely, particularly along the spine of the country. that means temperatures here holding up slightly above freezing. a cloudy and great start in northern ireland and great start in northern ireland and parts of scotland." in the north sea coast. taking a look at the afternoon in detail, you can see where the cloud will tend to linger off the north sea coast. for much of wales, central and southern england,

just a little bit wordy cloud will ci’oss just a little bit wordy cloud will cross elsewhere. not a particularly warm day for us. don't moan about it yet, because it is going to get even colder as this high pressure across scandinavia, ruby in the driving seat, controls our weather patterns. as we move into saturday, there will be more of a breeze, particularly on those exposed east coasts, making it feel fresh. hopefully we will have some spells of funding to compensate. northern ireland with a little bit more anyway of cloud. a chilly day on saturday. into sunday, almost a repeat performance with cloud coming off the north sea, stronger breeze on the east coast making it feel much colder than these temperatures suggest. you have probably heard that it's going to get even colder still with the air
