11:01 am
and coming up... join me and a panel of guests on dateline london, we will be discussing that meeting on brexit and we look ahead to donald trump was mac uk visit. —— donald trump was mac uk visit. —— donald trump's uk visit. hello, a very good morning to you. welcome to bbc news. theresa may has warned her cabinet that she'll no longer tolerate public dissent over brexit following their collective agreement to back her plan for britain's future relationship with the eu. it follows a marathon 12 hour meeting of the cabinet at chequers yesterday, where mrs may told ministers it was their ‘duty‘ to agree a blueprint for brexit. the government's plan would create a uk eu free trade area, with what's being called a ‘common rulebook‘ on industrial
11:02 am
goods and agricultural products. the prime minister emphasised that no changes to trade rules would take place without the approval of mps. this plan, she says, would meet the uk's commitment to having no hard border with northern ireland, and to maintain frictionless trade. theresa may also outlined what the government are calling a ‘business friendly‘ customs model which would allow the uk to control its own tariffs but still make independent trade deals with other countries. the prime minister said she now wanted to get on negotiating ‘at pace‘ and hoped the proposal would be received positively by the eu. last night, eu chief negotiator michel barnier tweeted that the eu would have to "assess proposals to see if they are workable and realistic." our political correspondent chris mason has more. you know you‘ve had a long day when it‘s midsummer and, when you set off home from work, it‘s dark. this was chequers, the prime minister‘s retreat in buckinghamshire late last night. cabinet ministers met for 12 hours to discuss brexit and they agreed on a plan.
11:03 am
a few hours before, at dusk, theresa may set out her proposals. the cabinet has agreed our collective position on the future of our negotiations with the eu. our clear proposal will create a uk—eu free—trade area, which establishes a common rule book on industrial goods and agricultural products. this will maintain high standards, but we will make ensure that no changes can take place without the approval of our parliament. as a result, we will avoid friction in trade. that will protect jobs and livelihoods, and also meet our commitment to northern ireland. the prime minister wants to see a facilitated customs arrangement that would remove the need for customs checks as if in a combined customs territory. freedom of movement will come to an end. and the government wants to be able to secure free trade deals with countries around the world. but, already, some leave supporters regard the plans as a sellout, fearing the uk will remain too close to the eu after brexit.
11:04 am
and then there‘s the matter of how all of this goes down with brussels. chris mason, bbc news, at westminster. we are nowjoined by political correspondent alex forsyth who speaks to us from downing street. what do the prime minister‘s team will be the broader reception, particularly in the conservative party? there were plenty of people wondering whether if theresa may will get to this point. there were dire —— deeply divided views. the boil down to how closely aligned the uk should remain to the eu, whether the eu would take back adequate control of its laws. their key argument is that this proposal
11:05 am
delivers on the promises that theresa may made, leaving the customs union, leaving the single market and stopping the unchecked free movement of people. that is the way they are hoping to sell this at the moment. well the cabinet has agreed this proposal, they are conscious that still has to go to brussels. yesterday they also agreed they would step up preparations in case this could not be agreed, and no deal scenario. it is important to say that what we agreed yesterday is that we would also step up no deal planning. we do not want that, we do not want no deal. i want a sensible way for businesses to carry on to sell our businesses they are and vice versa. but we are not certain about the final end point and we we re about the final end point and we were clear yesterday as a cabinet, were clear yesterday as a cabinet, we will step up no deal planning.
11:06 am
already we have had some reservation expressed by brexiteers in the conservative party. the concern being that if the uk does remain closely aligned to the eu, it has to follow eu rules when it comes to trading goods. there would not be the flexibility in the uk to match for example the standards that other countries may want to deals on. so at this point there has been no out right rejection from the brexiteer side. they want to consider the detail. they are gathering here this morning for a briefing with number ten staff on the detail on the plan. we caught up with the brexiteer nigel evans. a lot of questions. the only thing there is certainty about today, there is coffee. no breakfast. we will see. we need to see whether we are able to do comprehensive trade deals with
11:07 am
united states of america, we have got president from coming next week. we have the ambassador are looking for a 0% tariff on us goods. if this deal stops that, then that is not to the benefit of the united kingdom. do you think the technology needed to make this plan work, this idea of tracking goods when they go and whenever they go, then deciding what to pay, do you think that is available and can work?|j to pay, do you think that is available and can work? i am on the international trade sale at committee and i have been to the us — canada border. that technology already exists. trusted traders using camera technology. and making absolutely certain that there is full declaration by the businesses. i have no doubt whatsoever that this sort of technology already exists.
11:08 am
in terms of how long we have the transition period lasting, some people are saying this means we will never have brexit. that is where we're going to get answers today, whether brags that means greggs at or in name only. it is not one or the other. —— brexit means brexit. what we have got to do is notjust keep faith with 27 cabinet ministers, but all the people who voted to leave the united kingdom —— european union. we had the second referendum, the first one was in 1975. the second one was in 2016. we we re 1975. the second one was in 2016. we were told whatever the british people decided, we would deliver. we are not paying billions into a single market where we have a deficit. we are going to control our
11:09 am
borders and we are going to do international trade all over the world and not just international trade all over the world and notjust be decided by a foreign court. if we take all those boxer then brexit means no more brexit to me. i am defending the red line she has returned. you can hear the level of concern and some on the brexit kim —— supporting side. jason friese mogg said he could vote against this detail if the detail arrived. still a way to go for the prime minister although number tell on will be pleased they have got the cabinet behind this plan. —— number ten. she will be addressing mps further on the detail of the proposal on monday and then there will be once the paper is published, two of european capitals. the part is selling this to brussels. it will
11:10 am
bea is selling this to brussels. it will be a long summer. we are nowjoined by james randerson, brexit editor of politico in brussels. welcome to bbc news. do you think this is a starting point for negotiation or is it effectively the cherry picking that the eu said it was not prepared to talk about? the reaction in initially is relief that there is a unified cabinet position that they can engage with. and undoubtedly there has been some give—and—ta ke, brussels will take this seriously. i was at an event yesterday where the chief negotiator was speaking at, michel barnier. this was before the announcement of the deal at chequers but nonetheless it was very significant that he was saying, he devoted a lot of his speech to the integrity of the single market. he was saying this
11:11 am
was the heart of the european budget, it is the single most economic public good provided by the european union and it —— he was adamant that that was going to be unravelled. by the looks of it, if you‘ll get to be‘s plan, it does look like trying to unravel parts of the single market. there are freedom of goods, movement of people, capital and services, what this plan is asking for is to keep participating in goods and capital but not the other two. i think there are questions about whether that will apply here. the difficulty is that these negotiations are often in the end political and it is how much the end political and it is how much the political will may be there to say to the european commission from the heads of government, we understand why you have been negotiating this position, we think we need to shift of it. is it possible for the british to lobby
11:12 am
governmental leaders to have that kind of direct impact on what the commission is reverted negotiate? absolutely. the commission is only acting on the guidelines that are set out. michel barnier has a set of guidelines given to him by the eu 27, ultimately the leaders around europe. so very much so. that husband britain‘s tactic up to now, to try and lobby european leaders for a more pragmatic position. arguably that is how they have made sufficient progress in december which was to be honest a bit of a fudge on ireland, and that is why we have seen subsequently that has fallen apart. i think it is undoubtedly the case that under the current mandate that michel barnier has, he will not be able to negotiate a deal with what to me is a meal —— to be is offering. that
11:13 am
means going around this sort of diplomacy to as we have heard. -- theresa may. thank you very much for joining us indeed on bbc news. england take on sweden at the world cup today, seeking a place in the semi finals for the first time in 28 years. manager gareth southgate says his players want to make history. this morning our correspondent is where the match will be played. people are already waving their flags? that is the river of all golf with a bunch of england fans enjoying the sunshine. —— river volga. the fans

11:19 am
telling their parents they are strong and not to worry. police investigating the poisoning of a couple in wiltshire warn the operation will take months to complete. the thai boys who‘ve been trapped in a cave for two weeks have written letters to their parents telling them not to worry, and that they are feeling strong. in another letter, their coach, who took them into the cave on an exploration expedition, has apologised to their parents. emergency workers have now set up an airsupply line to the group. sophie long brought us this update from tham luang. although preparations are under way to get the 12 young footballers and their coach out of the cave. one of their coach out of the cave. one of the main parts is the continuing of pumping water out of the cave complex. they have pumped millions of gallons of water out of the caves
11:20 am
in an attempt to drop their water levels so they can go to doubts they can get the boys out without using diving gear. none of the boys have any diving experience and it is a difficult passage, some of the corridors are and jagged. some too narrow to get scuba we are through with them. it had been a race against the clock and the weather and no time is ever more critical because they have heavy rain is forecast in the next few days. what they want to do is get the boys and caught out before their health deteriorates and before weather deteriorates. those leading the operation here, if the rains come too soon and water rushes back in the caves, they have an emergency plan to get them out as soon as possible. it is notjust the physical health, but the mental health as well. we have had messages coming out overnight, one of them
11:21 am
from the court, just 25 years old and sell. it is the first we have heard from them. he said in a note, iam very heard from them. he said in a note, i am very sorry. he was doing his very best to look after the boys are saying they were being treated well by all the rescuers. some messages from the boys themselves, giving their age and predicament, very sweet. one said, do not worry about as, we are very well. and requests further favourite foods if and when they finally get out. police investigating the latest nerve agent poisoning in wiltshire say they‘ve begun examining more than 1300 hours of cctv footage. dawn sturgess and charlie rowley remain in a critical condition in hospital, after being taken ill a week ago. investigators believe the couple may have handled a contaminated object containing the potentially deadly novichok. sport know with chris mitchell. four
11:22 am
hours until england kick—off against sweden. england and sweden kicks off in just under a—hours. a place in the semi—finals of the world cup up for grabs. the two—sides haven‘t met for 6—years, when they have sweden have been something of a bogey team for england. in terms of the team, suggestions this morning that this man — eric dier — will start the match. he of course scored the decisive penalty in the shootout against colombia. looks like he‘ll play in place of dele alli who has struggled with injury in russia. england haven‘t been as far as the semi—finals since the world cup in 1990, sweden represents — on paper at least — a great chance to progress and they‘re favourites to do so. we came into this tournament has the least experienced team. we are one of the youngest teams in it and we are an improving side that want to
11:23 am
make our own history. we have already had our first knockout win in ten years, first win in a penalty shoot out in the world cup for england. highest number of goals scored and an individual being. so we wa nt scored and an individual being. so we want to keep making that history. england vs sweden then live on bbc one and bbc radio 5 live. the winner of england sweden will play either russia or croatia in the semi—finals — that game kicks off at 7 o‘clock and it‘s on 5 live. france will play belgium in the other semi—finals — the spots decided yesterday. france — who are now world cup favourites — beat uruguay in the first quarter—final. france deserved to win but perhaps the uruguayan keeper didn‘t deserve this. a terrible error by goalkeeper fernando muslera will be replayed forever. antoine griezmann with the strike france winning 2—0. speed, intensity
11:24 am
and this great strike from manchester city‘s kevin de bruyne marked out belgium‘s great win over brazil. brazil floored. neymar going home. belgium looked like the team everyone has been promising they would be. knocking the five—times winners out of the world cup to reach the semifinals for the first time since 1986. 2—1 it finished. to wimbledon, and one man who‘ll be doing his best not to be distracted by england‘s exploits in russia is kyle edmund. the british number one‘s playing in his first ever third round match. he won‘t have it easy. he‘s playing the three—times champion novak djokovic, on centre court. he could be on court at the same time england and sweden are playing. that will be something because his coaches, guess what? swedish! england‘s cricketers have
11:25 am
levelled their t20 series with india to set up a decider in bristol on sunday. eoin morgan‘s side won by 5 wickets in cardiff. chasing down 149 to win, david willey hit the winning runs, but it was alex hales who top scorted with 58, giving captain eoin morgan a selection headache with ben stokes returning for the final match. alex always makes it difficult with particularly in t20 cricket. he is our highest run scorer, a very experienced campaigner and again in innings like that and eight, makes him a pretty strong case for the next game. such a busy sporting weekend and there‘s also the british grand prix. final practice is underway — although session stopped right now. it looks like being a tight battle between championship leader sebastian vettel and lewis hamilton who topped the timesheets in each practice session yesterday. hamilton is chasing a record 6th win at silverstone time to remind you, that heard of

11:28 am
behind that band of cloud marked out by this weather front, there is cooler air trying to work its way in from the north—west. it will not make much progress during sunday. sunday will the small moving weather front, dragging its heels apart northern parts of scotland. hain that something cool and fresh, ahead of long spells of sunshine and lots of long spells of sunshine and lots of heat to be had. note the deep orange colours in our chart. towards the south east it is going to get 31 or 32 degrees. not much will change through next week, it will turn cooler for a through next week, it will turn coolerfor a time, there through next week, it will turn cooler for a time, there will still be lots of dry weather and plenty of strong sunshine. welcome to dateline london, the programme that brings together some of british journalism‘s leading commentators to debate with internationaljournalists whose dateline is london. this week: high noon in the chiltern hills as cabinet ministers finally agree on brexit.

11:30 am
and work here and we can do the same in the eu. the european court ofjustice won‘t have jurisdiction any longer
