we have facebook were outside rules. we have still not heard an apology from zuckerberg. you say finally, do you think you should have said more earlier? one of the reasons investors are suing and advertisers have pulled out, there has felt like there has been an absence of leadership. it doesn't look good at all. the thing that is becoming clear about facebook is that for a lot of us, we thought it was a nice and fluffy platform for posting pictures of our babies and pets and actually it's a ruthless marketing platform and the deal is, you get to do all the fluffy nice things, and we get to harvest all your information. everybody kind of knows that's the deal and we know it happens with advertising, but when it moves into politics and slightly more serious issues like democracy, i think people do want to know. add mark zuckerberg is one of the most powerful men on the planet now. these new tech giants have so much power, but with that comes
responsibility. i think the fact he has not said sorry... i have been reading his statement. it's very, very long, but the word that is missing is sorry. he does say, we made mistakes, there is more to do, we need to step up and do it. he pledged to investigate suspicious looking apps and banned developers who refused to comply with an audit. is that enough? he also said it is against our policy for developers to share data without our users' consent. it's also against data protection laws to share that data. new laws were becoming in in may and breaches of that law will incur penalties of up to 4% of worldwide revenues, which means that these are now laws that have real bite and companies will have to pay attention to them. not only that, it also means this is a wake—up call for companies like this about reputation. what we have seen is the
delete facebook hashtag trending. it remains to be seen whether those will be followed with actions, but what we are seeing is a move from people being happy with companies just relying on data protection, and they want that to be followed with data ethics. to conclude this, i think the idea of people deleting facebook is not going to happen. it's a social lifeline for a lot of people. i have relatives in india and it's incredibly helpful for me. but us as consumers, and users of this, we have to get more savvy about what is happening with our data and our privacy. people at facebook have to be much clearer with us, the users, about what the deal is, and allow us to opt in and t deal is, and allow us to opt in and opt out of things. let's go to the i, a pay rise hope for the nhs. the pay cap on public sector workers, particularly in the nhs, has been a sore deal for a long time. public
sector workers feel they have borne the brunt of austerity. we have heard stories of nurses going to food banks and lots of horrendous things like that. it looks like a deal has been reached for nurses. they do still have to vote on it. deal has been reached for nurses. they do still have to vote on itm does feel like the unions and government are in a good place. most unions seem to be with it. i would argue that it would have been good if this could have been done earlier because people have had a hard time. in real terms you have seen the cost of living going up and it's been ha rd of living going up and it's been hard for nurses. the question now is, what about the other public sector workers, teachers, classroom assistants, firefighters? they all do important jobs in assistants, firefighters? they all do importantjobs in society. assistants, firefighters? they all do important jobs in society. as a former government minister, nicola, i'm intrigued to know how you see this. clearly that's an issue at the headline points to the fact that wa nts headline points to the fact that wants one group of public sector workers sees something better, the others are bound to want the same. if you look at health, this is not the only pay deal which has been
settled. this has had the biggest news, £42 billion of new money from the treasury, and it's a significant amount of money, and we are seeing the lowest amount going up to potentially 29% pay rises. it's coming from the treasury reserves. and the gp contract has been agreed, £256 million more. we know doctors and dentists will have to follow suit. these pay settlements will be coming forward. i think what has become clear in terms of the way the government is looking at it, it's not just about the fact these are incredibly hard—working not just about the fact these are incredibly ha rd—working public sector workers, who have been on tight budgets for a really long time, it's also about recruitment and retention. in some places, like my own constituency in oxford and abingdon, it's become a real challenge with the cost of living going up inexorably. one of the reasons the conservatives failed to
get the majority and lost a lot of seats at the general election, a lot of public sector workers got sick and tired of the pay cap. i think the conservative party paid quite a heavy price for that paid. the express , heavy price for that paid. the express, boris says putin isjust like hit her. with characteristic bluntness like hit her. with characteristic blu ntness and use like hit her. with characteristic bluntness and use of language, boris makes the point about what he sees as the risks of the world cup. —— putin is just like as the risks of the world cup. —— putin isjust like hitler. we know with the world cup, the use of propaganda extends to sporting events. we saw it with the sochi olympics and the doping scandal that followed. i think the concerns boris has raised are perfectly reasonable. the politicising of the world cup. i think the question which then follows is twofold. the first is, who should then attend? and i think he is right that having worked so
ha rd he is right that having worked so hard for all of this time, it's right for the team to attend, but the next question that follows is the next question that follows is the safety of the fans, and ensuring that safety. i know discussions are going to follow on that, but i think it will be a really crucial part of the picture. lots of discussions about whether england should even go to the games. as a scot, we took a decision early on not to get to the world cup! we took a very principled decision! laughter we look to the future and saw bad things coming down the track and said no. that's what i would like to believe. i'm sure that's how gordon strachan sees it! you have to look oi'i strachan sees it! you have to look on the bright side. it's a difficult issue. everybody is talking tough around putin. to be slightly cynical, i think it's easy for boris to ramp up the rhetoric. equating putin to hitler i think is a bit of a stretch, to be honest. putin is definitely a bad man. hitler killed
millions and millions ofjewish people and other people, sol millions and millions ofjewish people and other people, so i think it's a big reach. what i think boris johnson should be doing, and theresa may is cracking down on tackling money coming in from russia to this country. they have done good on the diplomats. there is the magnitsky act, which they should be putting into place to allow us to crackdown oi'i into place to allow us to crackdown on foreign officials involved in corruption, but there is a lot of dirty russian money coming through london. i think a little less hysterical overblown rhetoric like this and c as crackdown on that kind of stuff. i will invite you both to move reasonably swiftly through the next few selections. a word about the metro, and ant mcpartlin, and where it will leave itv. it's a really sad story. ant mcpartlin has been struggling for a long time. and on deck are a large drawer for itv. for the rest of the season it presents itv with a huge challenge
and dec has said he will go through with the remainder of programmes without ant. the question is whether that can be sustained for the rest of the season. it's hard to visualise it for either of them.|j read that they had a pact that they would always do television together. they grew up together, they were teenagers when they entered the spotlight. it's very sad, but hopefully their friendship will help them come through this. nigel farage and some fish on the front of the financial times. just when you think brexit can't get any more ridiculous, it is the spectacle of nigel farage throwing dead fish into the river thames as a protest at the fa ct the river thames as a protest at the fact that fishing is not going to change as much as we thought it would. we are not going to take back control of fishing in the way we had somehow promised. ithink, you know,
the whole thing was a completely ludicrous stunt, but then again, the leave campaign did go around doing some ridiculous stunts during the campaign as well. says a remainer. a lot of people are saying... they are oi'i lot of people are saying... they are on the warpath saying it's an important industry. i'm not saying it's not, but there were other groups in society, take the staff in the nhs, we employa lot groups in society, take the staff in the nhs, we employ a lot of people in the nhs and they are wondering where the £350 million per week plastered on the bus is. we are not going to rerun that campaign again. we haven't got time. nicola, sticking with that theme, the telegraph, the blue brexit passports might not be made in britain. they might not be made in britain. they might not be made in britain. they might not be made by a british company, they might be made by a franco dutch company. the concern made by some brexiteers is that the reason for this is because european rules required the tender to be put
out across the eu and it has been won not by a british company, and the symbolism of this is not what we're after during the brexit period i have to say, i think all concerned need to lift up their eyes and look at where we are trying to end up as an end goal, which is to come out of brexit with an economy that is strong and with the right results. i think michael gove put it quite well when he said, keep the eye on the prize. you want to have trade negotiations through the transition period and have a pragmatic result at the end where immigration rules are right, and the terms of transition give certainty to companies. some of these issues, it feels like they have some importance, they are perhaps not top priority. i will ask you to pause now, to give us 30 seconds to reflect on back pain. according to the times, treatment is useless.
subject close to the back of my heart. it's about getting hooked on drugs and painkillers and opioids, what people should be doing is using psychological therapy and exercise. so instead... back pain is a huge issue, suffered by 9 million people in britain. one out of every seven gp appointments is about back pain. the message is, don'tjust pop pills, gets down and do some pilates. about five years ago i couldn't turn my neck at all. i went toa couldn't turn my neck at all. i went to a physio who was also a pilates teacher and she did everything with physio and couldn't fix it. she said i wouldn't respond to any touching, try doing exercise. and i did, and i can now turn my head. beautiful. i am living proof that the article is correct. thank you both 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 — 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 to you both. goodbye. good evening. over the past few days, the temperature has just been creeping up by a few degrees. on wednesday we had 13 celsius across parts of northern ireland. tomorrow stays relatively mild, and looks largely dry. there will be a bit of sunshine on offer as well. we have quite a bit of cloud with us at the moment. looking at the satellite image, down at the cloud across the atlantic. over the past 24 hours that cloud has been streaming in and working its way towards our shores, so things will be fairly unsettled over the week ahead as we see those atlantic weather systems showing their hand. what we have at the moment is a relatively mild air mass with us. slightly cooler air just waiting in the wings, so we will start to see the wind coming in from the north west later this week, but it's certainly not going to be anything like as cold as it was
during the last weekend. for the rest of the night, a few light showers across parts of eastern england, particularly east anglia. later in the night, some spots of rain over the far north—west of scotland. most places looking dry tonight. we'll see the clearest skies and lightest winds towards wales and the south—west of england. there could just be a touch of slight frost here, temperatures around 2 degrees or so, but for much of the country it's a relatively mild and frost free start to thursday morning. thursday shapes up to be not a bad day. a few showers at first across east anglia and the south—east, that should clear away. a lot of dry weather, the best of the sunshine across eastern scotland and eastern england. in fact, in eastern scotland we could see 13 degrees or so. later in the day, though, the rain arrives from the west and starts to moving across northern ireland and the west of scotland. much of england and wales keeps the dry weather for a good part of the day. heading towards the end of this working week, we have a couple of fronts that you can see making their way from west to east across the country through thursday night and on to friday. we are likely to start friday with quite a bit of cloud and a few outbreaks of rain,
certainly clear towards the east. and then a return to sunshine and showers from the north—west, but some of the showers packing in will be quite heavy. some hail and thunder likely, perhaps some snow over the mountains of scotland and rain at lower levels. temperatures around 9—12 degrees, fairly typical for the time of year. through into saturday, quite cloudy at first for england and wales and the potential for some patchy rain in the south and east, but it should clear away. a return to sunnier skies from the north—west but further wintry showers in northern ireland and western scotland. temperatures around 9—11. goodbye for now. this is bbc news.
i'm julian worricker. the headlines at 11: the facebook founder mark zuckerberg admits the company has made mistakes in its protection of users' personal data. the pilot of a jet which crashed at the shoreham air show in 2015, killing 11 people on the ground, is to be charged with manslaughter by gross negligence. boris johnson deepens diplomatic tension with russia by drawing parallels between president putin and adolf hitler. and on newsnight, a year on from the westminster attack, an extensive investigation by newsnight uncovers significant information about the man behind it and why he may have acted when he did.
