nations devolution, the devolved nations does a subject of evolution had not been properly explored during the debate that had been going on so far and does lots of activity on twitter today about suggestions that the s and p were out talking time yesterday deliberately. there were even some tweets todayjust before this particular event happened. that was suggesting people should be watching bmg was. but is not always happen, people don't always encourage people to watch it. you think it was a premeditated stunt? the interesting thing about this was it could backfire article. this was all about keeping independence on the agenda and about suggesting that the agenda and about suggesting that the comments aren't given due time to scotland in the effect of brexit on scotland. but actually, he saw the extraordinary side of the leader walking out, the rest of the mps walking out, the rest of the mps walking out, the rest of the mps walking out and actually the very thing they have been wanting to happen was about to be granted this three—hour debate they wanted and as a result because of some procedural quirks which i will go into because it will send everyone to sleep, the
reality is other mps had also supported from other parties the issues in scotland being debated and they could not have it either. so they could not have it either. so they ruined the fun for everyone. on much longer are people prepared to do this? people have of come around to the view that the country remains hopelessly split on this issue of brexit. goodness knows is anything else going on in government at the moment? not that i'm aware of. the parties are slow —— but as well. labour suffering a mass revolt, 90 mps defying corbyn on brexit. in a sense i suppose yesterday was the day of story —— tory splits and tonight we have seen the labour split their having to be? on the leadership of this country it would seem leadership of this country it would seem to some of us faces up to the fa ct seem to some of us faces up to the fact that they have failed to bring the country together after brexit
there still as bright as they ever we re there still as bright as they ever were if not more so, it would seem to me that the logic of having another referendum gets greater by the minute. and before somebody says would have on a minute, 52, 48 that was the decision, it's done. 0ne would have on a minute, 52, 48 that was the decision, it's done. one has to say i always want to ask nigel farage if you had lost 52—48, would you have gone away, shut up? gone and tended the roses? i very much doubt that. of course, independence from scotland there was a referendum a few years ago there and we are talking about another referendum in scotland. the reality of what happened yesterday and what's unfolding today and now with labour is that the proposals and compromises being put forward are simply not working. the parties are very divided on what the answer is and that's going to be the disagreements will have to go again. habibou arsene we are negotiating
all the time with ourselves but not with europe. it's that exhausting to negotiate with ourselves. we have not returned to talk to people we have to talk to. the front page of the daily telegraph —— telegraph, this is an interesting story. the new home secretary, apparently going to announce tomorrow doors open to thousands more skilled migrants. so i sort of softening of the line that there has been at the home office since the days when theresa may was there. this is something i think a lot of people have been expecting that he was not when to take that job as home secretary without giving you could actually make his mark. but there are some interesting nuancesin but there are some interesting nuances in the story. and essentially this is actually about pa rt essentially this is actually about part of the government noise around the nhs 70th anniversary. because the nhs 70th anniversary. because the problem is there has been the tension within government about more funding for the tension within government about more funding forthe nhs, tension within government about more funding for the nhs, there's been talk of lots of disagreements going on, pressure on philip hammond to release money. but actually also, this isn't specifically addressing theissue this isn't specifically addressing the issue about doctors in
particular where there is a huge crisis around recruitment of doctors for the nhs. the government could not simply stand up, celebrate the future and history of the nhs without actually addressing some of the big changes for the future. but there's an interesting point in the middle of the story for those who voted in favour of brexit. leading eurosceptics including borisjohnson and michael gove argued that the eu referendum was about control and deciding who should be allowed to enter the uk rather than slashing numbers. i hope everyone who voted for brexit was aware of that. let's talk about the express because they have got this interesting story about the numbers victory for workers' rights and what it means for the gig economy. talk us through this and why it's such an important case. drew the numbers of staff —— self in our country are greater today than they have ever been. in
modern times. and there are implications here of course notjust for the self—employed and those for whom they choose to work in some cases specifically but also for the tax authorities it would seem to me. but, gary smith had worked solely for this company, posh plumbers of tells me. for six years, the uk's highest court has ruled after an appeal he was entitled to workers' rights despite being registered and being self employed tax. that includes things like holiday and sick pay. that is a very significant numberfor sick pay. that is a very significant number for people. breaux where they effectively have contracted workers. huber, those companies. this so—called gig economy, it's this issue of particular companies and what it means is in essence the
company does not all these workers anything more than a fee for your time. but actually, what happened in this ruling was that there were very specific controls uniform that had to be worn, the time of work, even being able to compete for work you weren't allowed to and essentially it meant that the company although only contacting this person was actually putting a significant amount of controls in place and that's where actually this balance has been tipped which charlie, the owner says he's very vexed about and he spent a lot of money on fighting this case and he's now going to face the employment tribunal because the original it was about this guys rights to go to a tribunal in the first place. it could be very costly. very interesting case. the times front base leaves us with the web giants quotes, fuelling a child mental health crisis which is something we have heard a lot about isn't it? this is the nhs saying this. the nhs and notjust anybody at the nhs, the boss is saying, what
is modern technology really doing the childhood? his name is simon stevens, he's got two children of himself and he said the country needed to ask some pretty searching questions around the role of technology companies, social media, and the impact that it's having on childhood. eight social media, video games, it's so much of what young people, not just for games, it's so much of what young people, notjust for parents who should be concerned about this. some of us who are lucky enough to the grandparents, we should be equally worried and are i suspect. there are issues around schools because there are children that are very tired for school, because they have been up for very late on particular devices. there have been reports about the issue of what the effect of social media has on adults who look at facebook and it's all about bragging about how wonderful your life is which half of it you made of anyway. it lowers your self—esteem.
which half of it you made of anyway. it lowers your self-esteem. for children who don't know how to filter this stuff, it's extremely dangerous. the story reminds us there was an off, reports and that membered as last year, found that nearly a quarter of children aged eight to 11 had social media profiles despite many platforms claiming they should only be used by those 13 and over. we know footballers that any have social media profiles no doubts about that. we have a veteran of world cup, on the brink of the 2018 world cup. and the brink of the 2018 world cup. and the xenograft they have got a picture of harry kane and the keys already got a trophy in his hand. it's at the earn he was given by some russians. the england team has been very well received clearly i used to be in charge of choosing, helping to choose the venues for the england team. and it was particularly when they had a world cup injapan and korea i never
learnt more about japan and korea in my life and it's been ages winning around the country. it's so important you get a good welcome and you are welcome by the local people. and the players will have gone out, will be encouraged to go and see it. this is salt unbranded, and it's all pa rt this is salt unbranded, and it's all part of the ritual. it's amusing to see its like when you see what the royals get given from different countries. this is what's expected to be the routine and it's fantastic. the nutritionist at the new england team you will be very interested to see how that fits in with today's menu. i love that headline. now, this is your favourite story of the day. the telegraph post bands not allowed to fly the england flag. if that thing,
we have eight every time, we have the shops aren't the fed up with the flags and you get someone has to come out and ruin everybody‘s fun. i started this about a man who banned post commands from flying flags at the concerned he might fly off as if they could be causing damage. it's a health and safety issue. it's always self and —— health and safety. i'd like to know where the drivers will be putting them to obscure their vision. i'm sure postmen are sensible about where they put them. i'm disappointed this world cup by, igo i'm disappointed this world cup by, i go back to the memories i have of being involved and excited you to actually and excited the players they were coming from a country that clearly was behind the team. but, this is to everybody the expectation. i will have the bunting out for the royal, in the last five
minutes left and right while we do. do you think people are not flying the flag because they have no expectation that england will win? 0r dwell? expectation that england will win? or dwell? i think that has played a part. we use the think he used to read the newspaper headlines and the players said we're going to go and wayland — — when players said we're going to go and wayland —— when the world cup and dare i mention the scots who aren't going to this world cup and they we re going to this world cup and they were going to argentina to bring the world cup on monday came up to 20 half weeks or something. world cup on monday came up to 20 half weeks or somethinglj world cup on monday came up to 20 half weeks or something. i think eve ryo ne half weeks or something. i think everyone should go home and find their fries everyone should go home and find theirfries and everyone should go home and find their fries and get them out. -- find their flags and get them out. you could be england dustbuster leader. 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, jo and david.
goodbye. if you live in northern and central britain by now you should have prepared your gardens in advance of this storm which is going to bring some trouble potentially at least during the course of thursday so things like use garden furniture out of the way, gazebos, that sort of thing because the winds will be very strong for this time of year and this time of year we are vulnerable to gales like that. this is where the story is right now, it's just towards the west of our neighbourhood, the rains piling in already in advance of the gales and security across northwestern and western parts of the uk falling quite heavily and west of scotland and then through the night the winds will just keep
and then through the night the winds willjust keep on increasing and not much rainfall or too much wind in the south through the night but the wind will be noticeable early hours of thursday morning across northern ireland, the western isles of scotland, the northwest of england as well so some gales blowing through the irish sea. now the gusts are estimated to approach around the miles per hour or more the central lowla nds miles per hour or more the central lowlands of scotland and 70 miles an hour on the coast and these are exa m ples of hour on the coast and these are examples of the snapshot any one time but they could be stronger even during the course of the morning. so severe gales and disruption possible across northern part of the uk so northern ireland scotland, northern england, further south still some strong winds particularly northern wales, into lincolnshire, and blustery further south also. you'll notice that a lot of rain with the storm in the south it will be a few sprinkles i think early in the morning. but through lunchtime i think we will see some heavy showers moving through scotland carried by those vicious powerful gusts of wind
potentially bringing down branches and trees in places but then in the afternoon, the sun comes out and it's a bizarre day as wind gusts will be powerful but yet the sun is going to be strong. and then as we head into friday, much, much lighter winds and the storm is out of the way and what we've got is just a few showers they are affecting northwestern parts of the country to the south it will feel warmer and there is sun around with temperatures around 22 celsius. as far as the weekend is concerned a little mix you're expecting showers on saturday, sunday is your best bet for dry weather, should be fairly sunny. this is bbc news.
