that speech was talking to the party more than it was to the eu. that speech was talking to the party more than it was to the eui that speech was talking to the party more than it was to the eu. i think it was talking to a domestic audience. she was trying to steady the ship slightly. it did convey the fa ct the ship slightly. it did convey the fact that she was genuinely put out by what had happened. she genuinely felt they had behaved in an inappropriate way. i think it has beena inappropriate way. i think it has been a successful tactic, because as faras been a successful tactic, because as far as the front pages though it has distracted attention from asking those questions as to how she ended up those questions as to how she ended up in that situation, why was it that she was led to believe and she therefore led others to believe that she was going to come back from salzburg with a completely different outcome? was that a baby of her political advisers? was it a failure of the civil service? did she completely lack all sense of objectivity about the way the eu might do hera objectivity about the way the eu might do her a favour, which is not necessarily in their best interest to do so, so, ultimately, there are
big questions to ask about her leadership, but, as has been the case, really, for the past two years, there has not been quite the right time to ask those questions, because there are a much bigger things that need to be sorted out. ijust want i just want to turn to the daily mail. we have been hearing about the second referendum, we have not heard it in the last 2a hours, not what we are now, or the daily mail is reporting, is that if we were to walk away with real, according to the daily mail and coming from an insider, that voters would be fine with that. i think that this is coming from the international development secretary, someone who was at the forefront of the leave campaign and she said she has been talking to her constituents, she is in portsmouth, and she says that they are absolutely fine with the idea of leaving without a deal. even
remain as are fine with leaving without a deal. i'm not sure if that might be wishful thinking, it is not like she is presenting detailed evidence that voters are fine with it. i think actually the reality of ano it. i think actually the reality of a no deal brexit the most voters is a no deal brexit the most voters is a pretty terrifying thought, and remain or leave, i think that i would i would think there would be a majority in the country for leaving with a deal. i think she would be reflecting the sense that i have come acrossjust from reflecting the sense that i have come across just from talking to friends and people that i know, is that there isjust friends and people that i know, is that there is just a desperate desire to get this thing sorted out. and as a consequence people are resigned to the idea of no deal, but that sense of resignation is not necessarily enthusiasm. very quickly, a lot of people are behind mrs may on the turn that she has taken, quite combated, the sun sums
it up, there you are, the sun, up eurs, furious pm freezes talks with brussels. let's go back to the telegraph, and although we were saying labour not really featuring very much, there is a story but not to do with brexit. there are at the moment, labour's governing body is threshing out a view big reforms to the party, and one of the big controversial ones is that they want to change the rules whereby should jeremy corbyn be somehow indisposed oi’ jeremy corbyn be somehow indisposed or worse, not able to carry on as leader, in the interim you expect his deputy leader tom watson to step into his role, people around the jeremy corbyn don't like tom watson
very much and i want that to happen. now proposing to change the law to have the nec, labour was my governing body of about a0 people, to be in charge of the party, like running a party by committee. this is quite a controversial thing revoke. basically what they are saying is that that could happen because corbyn is facing some investigation, because he did not declare some foreign trips, i don't expect that to result in anything but a small snap —— slap on the rest. weller says the conflation of those two things is not what the nec is talking about will stop —— labour says. we have contacted the labour party and they have said they are happy to co—operate fully with the watchdog into this enquiry, there is a parliamentary enquiry going on around breaching parliamentary rules, the statement goes on to say" but labour was not, the subject was
totally unconnected to the powers of the nec. " can we turn to the express , the nec. " can we turn to the express, i would like you to take us through this army fitness story. i did not realise there were different rules the different genders and different abilities. neither did i put the express are reporting that they will be a change in the way the army assesses men and women to fitness, and this will become a new gender neutral type of assessment. when you read into the story, it seems to be largely common sense, and essentially, it is about making and essentially, it is about making an assessment taste on actual tasks that people in the front line... real—life situation. that people in the front line... real-life situation. rather than academic tests of relative strength. that is how i read it. yeah. it's
says the old system has not been updated in 20 years, and used to involve things like doing a number of push—ups and situps. now it says what it will be is doing marches, carrying heavy equipment and going as quickly as you can, or to compete as quickly as you can, or to compete a —— complete a fire and move exercise, dragging weights, the kind of thing you would have to do on the field of battle. because you have to com plete field of battle. because you have to complete those tasks when you are fighting, it does not matter if you're a man or woman, you have two com plete you're a man or woman, you have two complete them. we will see what sort of reactionaries to that. thank you both for that. 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, jessica and jo—anne. goodbye. good evening. all history has been

joshua has retained his world heavyweight crown. he takes on alexander povetkin in front of an 80,000 sellout crowd at wembley stadium. today's way injoshua was almost two stone heavier than his russian opponent he has been taking a new approach to training of late, waking up naturally before hitting the gym rather than setting an alarm. he feels betterfor the gym rather than setting an alarm. he feels better for it. joshua should win but his camp will have warned him that povetkin is still a danger with 3a wins and just one loss on his record will stop povetkin is strong, there is no doubt about that. he is a good fighter. no doubt about that either. ican go fighter. no doubt about that either. i can go on the back foot and do the uk i can go on the back foot and do the u k style i can go on the back foot and do the uk style boxing, but you've got to do also, what they do it, the mexican style, defend and come back and get stuck in a bit. don't be scared to get a cut eye and a bloody nose. ultimately you are there for a
fight and you have to go through that to get victory against someone like povetkin. i'm willing to do what it takes. wigan athletic are up to third in the championship after a one nil win over bristol city. the 52nd minute cross allowed nick powell to march his 100th league appearance for the club with a goal, it was also enough for the home side to ta ke it was also enough for the home side to take all three points. sam simmons scored to make tries for exeter to help them maintain their perfect start to the premiership by perfect start to the premiership rugby season. he is the lead —— league'sjoint top sora rugby season. he is the lead —— league's joint top sora with exeter still top of the sale after beating newcastle 2a— 17. in the pro 1a, cardiff ran in four tries a bonus point victory as they beat munster 37-13. point victory as they beat munster 37- 13. a point victory as they beat munster 37— 13. a try from henry spate in the final passage of play saw also
