11:30 pm
hello. this is bbc news with eleanor garnier. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first, the headlines at 11:30. four young men have been killed after two cars crashed in leeds in the early hours of this morning. police are appealing for information. patients in england may no longer be able to have some procedures that are deemed ineffective. new proposals mean treatments ranging from tonsil removal to haemorroid surgery will be offered to fewer people. tata steel, which owns britain's largest steel—making plant at port talbot, has confirmed merger plans with the german industrial group, thyssenkrupp. tens of thousands of people have protested in america against president trump's immigration policies. the largest demonstrations were in washington, new york and los angeles. fbi agents face off against mexican
11:31 pm
drug cartels been sicario two, starring josh brolin and anthony del toro. find out what mark kermode thought of that in the rest of the week's cinema releases in the film review. hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are nigel nelson, who's the political editor of the sunday mirror and sunday people, and the political commentatorjo phillips. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the observer leads with coverage of a study which indicates that recent education reforms appear to have fuelled inequality in the schools system. the sunday mirror reports that prince william has vowed to make "a just and lasting peace" in the middle east his life's mission, after a five—day trip to the region. the sunday telegraph says that one
11:32 pm
of donald trump's most trusted advisers has revealed to senior conservative mps that the us president wants to accelerate a post—brexit trade deal. the sunday times also leads on brexit, saying the pm has told aids that she would stand and fight against any coup or vote attempting to oust her by those opposed to her eu plans. the sunday express has a full page splash on the future of of the nhs, claiming that in the not too distant future medical supplies will be delivered by drones and phones will warn of stroke risks. the mail on sunday, meanwhile, goes with the news that the bbc has a17 transsexual workers. that is about one in 50 of the workforce. so, they we have most of the front
11:33 pm
pages. i think we are going to start with the sunday times. which says" oust me if you dare, mae warns brexit. —— may. oust me if you dare, mae warns brexit. -- may. well, there are crunch weeks and crunch weeks and they get crunchier as we go. a letter from 36 tory mps this weekend, an open challenge to theresa may, basically saying, gets tough, get on with it. meanwhile she has made it very clear that even if there were a vote of no confidence, she would stay on. she only needs one vote to win. which is a little bit reminiscent ofjohn major in 1995, back me or sack me. we know it will take 48 people, 48 mps, in order to start a vote of no confidence. but it would require almost three times as many to actually get it to a position of
11:34 pm
standing down. again, it illustrates how fragile cheers. —— she is. there are other people, notjust inside but outside cabinet, delivering to try to line up supporters should she go. try to line up supporters should she 90- -- try to line up supporters should she go. —— manoeuvring. try to line up supporters should she go. -- manoeuvring. they were suggesting that up to 20 mp5 were thinking they might have a chance of being prime and said she goes. there isa being prime and said she goes. there is a list of some of them. sajid javid, the home secretary. he is garnering support. michael gove, well, of course. jeremy hunt, gavin williamson. no mention boris johnson, you want what he is up to. he does get a photograph. —— you wonder. and they are getting together groups of mps the sandwich lunches or rounds of coffee in the house of commons. they should do more lavish dinners, think. that is interesting. it plays into how much these cabinet ministers are being outspoken, just as theresa may is
11:35 pm
trying to bring them together and get some discipline as she tries to get some discipline as she tries to get them to agree on one of the options going forward when it comes to customs arrangement. well, when they end up in chequers on friday it will be like children in school detention rather than a school party, with a teacher completely out of control. really, after gavin williamson threatened to bring her down alosio £20 billion for the health service like defence, he should have been fired. —— bring her down unless he got £20 billion. there is this idea of cabinet responsibility breaking down. michael gove apparently ripping up reports. it seems to be an it in the cabinet. i mean, it is quite embarrassing, that you think these are the people who are running the country, who are behaving frankly worse than any football fans that anybody would thought behave badly going to russia. they are behaving like louts. and this story in the
11:36 pm
observer, top tory tells ministers, pulled together or risk jeremy corbyn in downing street. —— pull. the chairman of the 1922 backbench committee, he looks after all the backbench mps, saying that we are being more loyal and more united than those in the cabinet. yes, sir graham brady. that 1922 committee is very powerful. it is probably, i think, where a vote of no confidence would begin. yes. it would be sent to him. the point here is making is that it to him. the point here is making is thatitis to him. the point here is making is that it is notjust the unity of backbenchers. all of those backbenchers. all of those backbenchers and every mp has to go backbenchers and every mp has to go back to their constituency and deal with people who are saving, this is ridiculous. nobody wants to vote for a divided party or a divided government. it is ridiculous. nigel, he is also saying ahead of next week's meeting at chequers which you
11:37 pm
just mentioned, theresa may has invited cabinet to the country retreat, and the idea is that during that day they will potentially thrash out the final plan which she can then take to brussels? that is the idea. what is supposed to come out of this meeting, and it may go on longer than a day, so it will be interesting to see who ends up sleeping on the couch, it is all 30 of those ministers, rather thanjust right at the cabinet that she had last time. she comes up with a white paper at the end, all being well, and that will be the uk's brexit position. the tricky thing is that all the indications are she wants something more like norway. so that we would actually align rules with the single market. and of course the brexiteers will not have that. do you think that at chequers they will play one of those murder mystery games? one of the games they were thinking plan was pin the tail on boris the donkey. that is important,
11:38 pm
we just boris the donkey. that is important, wejust had boris the donkey. that is important, we just had the summit last week and 110w we just had the summit last week and now we are looking ahead to october as the next deadline, when we talk about this disunity and the pressure and the latter and the ramping up of pressure on her, it is because time is ticking. the time is six weeks. everything starts breaking up in the summer. so you have six weeks to do it. and that means they probably will not get it done in october, they are probably looking at december. and she is going into meetings around the world and with other world leaders. she has this behind her. just as you say, if you look at the sunday telegraph, the headline there is trump aide in secret talks with brexiteers. one of donald trump's trusted advisers had a senior meeting with eurosceptic conservative mps, revealing that the us president wants to accelerate a trade deal after brexit. this was john bolton, the security adviser. he was apparently over here to see
11:39 pm
british national security people. but he had a visit with the european research group, the leading conservative eurosceptic research group, the leading conservative eurosce ptic group. research group, the leading conservative eurosceptic group. it was not attended by any officials or anything. that has created duryea mike civil servants and special advisers. no officials from government were there. —— created fury among civil servants. it puts lots of pressure on the meeting would donald trump when he comes here ina would donald trump when he comes here in a couple of weeks, and of course the nato summit he will be going to as well. so it is alljust, you know, she must think, roll on the recess. she must think brexit is going on forever. it certainly feels like that for the rest of us. one more question about the donald trump visit. he is coming over here, we have that visit, but there are other big things as well. we have that nato meeting. this is the problem, he comes to see us, he also has a nato meeting, and the understanding
11:40 pm
is he will read the riot act to nato, especially about not paying their share for the defence budget. then he goes off to do his own special deal with vladimir putin after that. so there are lots of concerns along the way that are outside brexit. theresa may will wa nt outside brexit. theresa may will want him to be pretty tough on russia, as he has been up to the salisbury poisoning. there are suggestions he might strike some kind of personal deal with putin. let's leave those stories behind and turn to the sunday mirror, which says wills, middle east peace is my life mission. yes, prince william hasjust come back life mission. yes, prince william has just come back from a five—day trip to the middle east. he went to jordan, palestine and jerusalem. trip to the middle east. he went to jordan, palestine andjerusalem. i think by all accounts, i mean, this is nigel's paper, he has done a very good job. he was incredibly well briefed. it is the first time a memberof the briefed. it is the first time a member of the royal family has ever been on an official visit to israel and palestine. and he has obviously
11:41 pm
been moved to say, according to sources close to him, that this is what he wants to do to make it his life's work. whether he is going to succeed where other people have gone and failed beforehand... most notably tony blair. i don't think he ever had a chance, to be honest. but thatis ever had a chance, to be honest. but that is another conversation. this is somebody who is, in a way, above politics. it is interesting, because the royal family are not supposed to get involved in politics, but we know perfectly well they do because everything has a political angle, whether it is what his mother was doing with landmines or aids or his father with architecture and ecology. i think the fact that you have somebody here who is prepared to be very public, and as i say, very evenhanded in a visit like this, it sends out a strong signal that he has got influence. ok, we will leave that one behind. heatwave
11:42 pm
water woe. that is page seven in the sunday express. we know how long it has —— how hot it has been. hosepipe bans are on the way. there is already one in northern ireland. this is talking about kew gardens. every gardener watching and listening will know how our lawns are going brown, our allotments are drying up and are lettuces are wilting. there is a photograph here are an egg being fried on a pavement. we always get that one. it isa pavement. we always get that one. it is a problem, you know. no doubt about it. we are never prepared for the weather in this country because it is so extraordinary. i remember 1976 without dreadful, dreadful drought. we have had it before. the rain will come again. it is a question of people saying, water, at probably quite soon, if it does not rain, there will be hosepipe bans, car washes collings —— closing down, all that sort of thing. another story about the weather, this time related to food. yes, we know about
11:43 pm
the shortage of carbon dioxide. but we are now going to have a shortage of lettu ces, we are now going to have a shortage of lettuces, and not just lettuces, it is rockley, cauliflower. the explanation is apparently that the weather puts them under terrible stress. yes, that is true. it's true! sorry, it was the expression that i found amusing, rather than the idea that they would be upset. there will be shortages of these things down the way. and of course lettu ces, things down the way. and of course lettuces, particularly, everybody has that in summer salads. it will also push the prices up. the price of food is going to go up which will add to, well, we have already seen food prices going up significantly. petrol goes up and down like a yo—yo. and the temperatures are here to stay, it seems. the sunday express has a story about the nhs. it says, healthcare revolution. it goes on to say that the nhs is on the brink of a healthcare revolution
11:44 pm
which will transform millions of lives through technology. this is a p pa re ntly lives through technology. this is apparently according to inward's of innovation chief. professor tony young, making a big speech next weekend as we mark the 70th anniversary of the health service. he is the national clinical director for innovation. he is talking about the use of artificial intelligence and a lot of technology and how it can help people. i mean, there are already ways technology is helping people hugely. there is an awful lot more that can be done. i think this is really interesting, especially in the care of all the people. because if you can have some system that monitors, for instance, there are dementia tracking slippers, so with a little gps thing you could find out if somebody has wandered away. i mean, it sounds crazy. but it is actually really sensible. if you can measure and work out when somebody is most likely to fall, perhaps if somebody is getting up or somebody
11:45 pm
is likely to have a stroke, all of these things can be measured, because there are signals, and it just means it is about the health service moving more towards prevention. instead of emergency. that has to be the key to it, the health service does have to shift. this is part ofjeremy hunt's ten year plan, when the new money was announced. the idea that you have gadgets which will tell you what is coming up along the way so that you can coming up along the way so that you ca n p reve nt coming up along the way so that you can prevent it, up until now, the nhs has tended to treat things. but there is a gadget here, you could put it into your telephone, it measures your heartbeat, your blood pressure and so on. if you are going to have a stroke it can warn you beforehand, or rekha to tack on the foret happens and you can get help. —— ora heart
