yes, i think tribute in a sense. yes, i think perhaps the passengers were surprised as well. this is a tube driver, who stopped the tube he was driving and on one of the bridges. and that few but very near where the grenville tower is and where the fire was. and the attribute there, i'm the reason being was that his close friend lost their life in the fire. so that was a personal tribute andi fire. so that was a personal tribute and i think it's one of many today right now i think there is a silent march going on through the area and there are still lots of questions probably more questions than answers about what happened. it's touching to see the communities coming together at least and what has been aan together at least and what has been a an awful situation. a lot of anger it's fair to say as well as grief. yes there is, the whole weird green for grenfell yes there is, the whole weird green for g re nfell tower yes there is, the whole weird green for grenfell tower is about keeping the story alive and making sure that pressure stays on government and the
establishment to come up with explanations and come up with ways of making sure it never happens again. i think this tributes in particular was special because there was something uniquely london about it. you had this backdrop of this tragedy you that you have communities coming together and then what's more kind of symbolic than a london tube train stopping in the middle of one of these get—togethers and trying to get the driver out waving around his green fibre. >>reporter: go to the guardian. this is an interesting story that's been breaking in the last few hours. the whole, that we thought had been agreed between theresa may and a programming rebel mps and it was a verbal compromise that was given to them although it was a verbal promise and it seems they are saying she backtracked on its. they are beginning to learn to praise a verbal contract is worth the paper it's written on. or not written on.
maybe they should have gotten it's written down on a piece of paper. so the situation here is i think the begun to realise something was amiss early on in the week when the government managed to succeed in knocking away this vote amendment that quite soon after you had the remainders and the brexiteers saying this is a big win for them. that did not seem like a really —— it's really added up. now it seems it's the remain rebels that are unhappy. what's interesting is either there's been a big miscommunication or there is thinking in the government that they can actually divide and conquer they can actually divide and conquer the tory rebels and the way this amendment is phrased they think might win overa amendment is phrased they think might win over a couple of rebels and the mark kind of pure remain rebels such as anna and dominic, they're not going to go with this but others might and that might get into the lion pit is the risky strategy. it show that theresa may is more frightened of the brexiteers
and the remainders? well she's fudging it with the remainders today but you'll be fudging it with the brexiteers tomorrow. the way we see the whole process go if you have lots of having about how the government will get over that of the cult of the brexit negotiations and a gift to a crunch point and she comes up a gift to a crunch point and she comes up with a huge project that manages to carry everyone along and then we go away again for two months. but the closer we get to march 2019, the smaller the gaps between fudges gets on the morphology the fudge is and the frustration grows and the —— sooner or later, the top will blow off it. i never underestimate her ability to fudge three things and i think even though this is quite bad for her because it is very risky you know, she really does not have much majority with the dep but she does have a propensity to be able to bring everyone along and sort of thing look, you gotjeremy corbyn waiting in the wings, and it's not bring down the government and she might make it there with another fudge for another week. you can see
why she went for that snap election because she could have done right now with a much chunkier majority. completely, what's interesting is talking about this really difficult negotiation and will she make it down the line and those conflicting personalities and this is just less minister. this is the uk if we even get to brussels. yes we are negotiating with ourselves at the moment. brussels has rejected everything we discuss anyway. data of the independence of story, welfare shambles is what they're calling it. his whole universal credit scheme as opposed to save money and currently causing quite a lot of money. yes, this follows the big idea ian duncan smith back in 2000 and, we had this hugely complex welfare system and the idea was to roll it all together into one single payment, six or seven different benefits and the idea was that it would be tidier and it would be cheaper and that it would be more
efficient and more effective. the problem is that we've been hearing rumblings and we've had different reports saying there's problems and various aspects of it but tomorrow, there's going to be a big reports from the national audit office that carries a bit more weight because it's meant to be an objective organisation. and it really sticks the knife in to universal credit. it says there's major delays in the roll—out and that is going to cost more than the systems it's meant to be replacing and this is a really critical one but actually we're never going to know if it's actually infected and or a government that is all about measurement by results that's a big blow. katie, still on government financed, the nhs getting all sorts of speculation about what the nhs is going to get in terms of a long—term kind of a financially. this is putting a figure on it. this lead story in the telegraph saying it's going to be £4 billion a year, partly as a brexit dividend. now, will somebody like jeremy the
secretary who's been asking for more cash, would he be happy with that? yes, this is a spectator come recently, which did reveal this idea that they are considering a 3% funding increase. and... the telegraph makes your story is that what you're saying? laughter there at the debate going on about what the story is. this is the idea that it will be 3% and i think jeremy hunt perhaps a bit more than that you had simon stevens say he is looking after the nhs for the trust should be between the .5 and four to be adequate. but i think as soon as you get to the 3%, that's a lot of money, so you get to the 3%, that's a lot of money, so how will you fund it? because the iss recently had a report suggesting that if you are going to increase the funding so it stays afloat that number will be £2000 per household. and here is a
bit of a brexit dividend so also stealth tax which are sneaky tactic you don't realise or the government hopes you don't realise. all of this increase in offence is just for the nhs to pretty much stand still with an ageing population, growing demands on its, it needs a huge rise at just the standstill doesn't demands on its, it needs a huge rise atjust the standstill doesn't it? lu the debate about nhs funding is it going on so long it's moved on from just money for the nhs. it's a place now where people are realising the extra pressures on nhs are because of future austerity and other areas for example council funding that it's after social services and tenderly care. it's more pressure on the nhs. so, this is only went to be a small part of the problem. and obviously it creates another political problem as well as katie was saying, there actually for income streams that the story talked about, income tax and brexit dividend, borrowing and stealth. we all know how careful phil hammond is. these not going to wa nt phil hammond is. these not going to want to borrow more money and
certainly the brexit dividend isn't a sure income stream. we are looking at income tax and sell stocks and i will be a problem. you could be upfront and say the people you want to better health let's have an extra penny on the pounds just to pay for that or whatever and special nhs tax. you could if you are 12 points ahead in the polls. i think what's interesting is the nhs did a few things, are happy being more hours of their taxes towards but that in theory and when you actually find out that it's coming off you specifically you start to go off it but they are reaching a higher tax forfour but they are reaching a higher tax for four decades but they are reaching a higher tax forfour decades now so i don't think we have to be careful when the add this stuff on if it's going to be the working age because we are having generational inequality. to the other story in the telegraph, taking up photographs is going to become a criminal offence. yes, this isa campaign become a criminal offence. yes, this is a campaign that started recently i think when there was a man doing
this, at a music festival, taking photos which is photos of woman's crotches and before i think it was the case it was very hard for the police to define this as anything which meant you could not really ta ke which meant you could not really take it seriously if you are following through. the idea of people doing that is pretty abhorrent and i think the fact is a criminal offence will hopefully be enough of the parents. i imagine people who are doing this think it's a silly prank without realising how serious it is and how it would make that person feel. we will talk about the world cup finally because the independence of got a picture of, lots of ports coverage but it got a picture of putin and quite interesting isn't itjoe? because not very long since that is all very attacked and some people were saying that boycott the world cup but there he is, but in her putin, sitting at the opening game with russia by the way 15—0 so a big smile on his face.
but i suppose both a big smile on his face also because he is hosting the world cup and he's looking quite imperious there is and he? yet it's a wonderful public coup for him getting to sit there in front of the world's cameras looking like the master of all that he sees. sitting next to the golf course which you know it he's no stranger to publicity problems as led in recent times. and mohammed from saudi arabia as well. that's right, the real coup for about —— vladimir putin and all of this is getting robbie williams, an englishman to go out and opened the world cup. these are busy quite a big star as well but of all the people they could've chosen, they chose a big english star. do you think robbie should have said no? should have boycotted its? is an interesting choice by him. ithink its? is an interesting choice by him. i think it's interesting of the contrast between the olympic games where russian athletes, they can wear their nationality in many ways and compare it to the world cup like
you say, this is a propaganda coup for russia. whites will be russians use it as that's? i mean, they're not going to shout out from the rooftops look everybody is here despite what happened in salisbury? i don't think it will happen straightaway. there's a lot of goodwill around it at the moment. it was the opening ceremony, russia just won its first game, 5—0, all the fans get on fine at the moment. but who knows? wanted to finished it it's a successful tournament, then you can see blood of input and using it in the same way he did so cheap, pointing out and saying look where a developed nation and we can compete with everyone else. you looking forward to the world cup? i'm not normally a football fan, but i get into the world cup. but the people who are not normally football fans get into it. that's one of the things that make it special. people baby who are not usually interested in itare baby who are not usually interested in it are usually interested.|j baby who are not usually interested in it are usually interested. i may even go out and buy an england shirt. maybe. will you wear it for
us next time you're in the studio joe? yes, that they pledge to you. have you got a tip for the winner?|j will hope for england and i'll think the other ones. what about you? 0k no comment. i will say france. thank you so much for being with us. 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, 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 katy and joe. goodbye. good evening. we did eventually get some funny spells across central and southern parts of england but it was quite wild early on today, in the
far northwest with storm hector passing through, the gusts of winds we re passing through, the gusts of winds were strong enough to bring summer trees down in full leaf. now starter hector continues to move this way off towards scandinavia and then things will quiet them down, still on the breeze side of the northwest and a cluster of showers through western scotland digesting their way east. over the next few hours it will see clear skies to the south and it will be a fresh night if we are trying to get a good nights sleep with overnight lows between eight and 11 or 12 degrees. we start off on friday on a quieter note there will be sunshine from the word go across southern areas. if you showers into northern ireland and western scotland will drift their weight eastwards as we go through the day. more isolated showers through wales and into the midlands. but with the sunshine will see more warm and highs of 22 degrees and the big cooler and fresher to the north. this is bbc news. the headlines at 11: a day of remembrance for the victims of the grenfell tower tragedy on the first anniversary of the fire where 72 people lost their lives.
