across the uk, bringing areas of low pressure in. at the same time, a high pressure is always had to build into the south—west. until we get into the south—west. until we get into next week and it does look as we can see the potential more significant area of low pressure to build into the north—west. you can see how tightly packed as isobars are likely to be. into next weekend, more of a substantial change. potentially more unsettled. certainly increasingly windy and with gales at times. the chance of more widespread rain right across the country. lots to play for. take care. hello, this is bbc news.
11:32 pm
we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first, the headlines. president donald trump orders an fbi investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against his nominee for the us supreme court. the move comes after the senatejudiciary committee voted to approve brett kavanaugh's nomination, ten votes to eleven — one step closer to the top us court. the family of a teenager who died following an allergic reaction to a pret—a—manger baguette have called for new laws on food labelling. facebook says it's discovered a security issue affecting more than 50 million users. it's not yet known whether any personal data has been exposed. in his first interview since quitting the cabinet, borisjohnson refuses to rule out challenging the prime minister for the tory leadership. and europe's golfers come
11:33 pm
from behind to end day one in front in the ryder cup. hello, and welcome to our lookahead at what the papers will be bringing us at what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. joining me is jason beattie. he's head of politics at the daily mirror, and also the political leader writer for the ft, sebastian payne. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the independent leads with the protest held outside the us supreme court as a committee of senators voted to approve brett kavanaugh's nomination. the i has an exclusive interview
11:34 pm
with thejustice secretary, david gauke, who says that borisjohnson‘s alternative brexit strategy threatens the survival of the uk. sticking with brexit, in the daily telegraph, leading brexiteerjacob rees mogg urges the prime minister to listen to mrjohnson — and back what he calls a ‘super canada' style plan. criminal gangs are grooming children who have been excluded from school. that's the lead in the times. 0ne expert claims the scale of grooming is on a par with child sexual exploitation. the daily mail reports that data from at least 50 million facebook user accounts has been hacked by criminals following a security flaw. this story is also picked up by the financial times, with news that the social media giant's share price fell more than 3% following the revelation. the sun leads with the anguish experienced by take that star
11:35 pm
gary barlow as he opens up about the loss of his daughter poppy. and a special investigation by the guardian reveals that hundreds of university academics have been accussed of bullying students and colleagues over the last five years. so a real mix of stories making the front page of tomorrow's papers. a real mix of lots of different stories. let's begin with the extraordinary twist sends terms we have been covering here this evening on bbc news. —— twists and turns. the nomination of brett kavanaugh. we have a picture on the front page of the independence of the protests as the committee and the difference senators were involved in another round of manoeuvring this evening. what is so extraordinary, as you say, about this story, is that it is
11:36 pm
a mixture of high politics, and in some cases very low a mixture of high politics, and in some cases very low politics, and the personal. this woman, amazing credit to her, dr christine blasey ford, who gave evidence yesterday, i think it is actually quite shaming that she was put in this position. because of a political row. i find it very gruelling to watch. i am sure many people did. the row around this has extraordinaire consequences in terms of shaping the course of history. —— extraordinary. if brett kavanaugh does history. —— extraordinary. if brett kava naugh does eventually history. —— extraordinary. if brett kavanaugh does eventually get a supreme court post there is a possibility, with another right—wing judge also appointed by trump, that
11:37 pm
roe the wade, the anti—abortion legislation, could be overturned. —— roe vs wade. what we had today went from this amazing bit of drama, where one of the republican members of this committee was confronted in a lift by two women who said they had also been sexually assaulted... a really emotional encounter. yes, and filmed on television. and it looks like, and the results of this kind of encounter, he goes back and changes his mind. now, these two women, i can't stress this enough, these two women could change american politics. to think how something could turn like that. as a result of his intervention they have now decided that the fbi, for only one week, should look into it. trump has agreed, after political pressure. let's see what comes out of it. and donald trump, who started off trying to support brett
11:38 pm
kavanaugh, then said he was going to stay out of the process, has now said, well, this further fbi investigation should go ahead? donald trump has not been clear throughout this whole thing. he has sort of eventually said he will go along with whatever the senate says, because obviously he doesn't want brett kava naugh to because obviously he doesn't want brett kavanaugh to lose the senate vote, and for him to be attached to that, because donald trump likes to back a winner. watching the whole spectacle of this, all this week, you do get the sense america is being pulled apart by these culture wars. as jason was saying, the testimony from christine blasey ford wasjust testimony from christine blasey ford was just absolutely gripping, and just so destroying to watch. in our newsroom , just so destroying to watch. in our newsroom, everybody was silent, all the tvs were on, everybody was watching somebody dared her soul, notjust to washington watching somebody dared her soul, not just to washington senators but to the whole world. —— bared her soul. then we saw brett kavanaugh
11:39 pm
almost breaking down several times, talking about his family, his pass, his aspirations tojoin talking about his family, his pass, his aspirations to join the supreme court. now we have this if ei investigation, which will be a week—long. it is hard to see what this will achieve injust week—long. it is hard to see what this will achieve in just one week. whether there will be more witnesses, more evidence that comes out. the key point is that the senate is very, very divided on the issue. 12 senators could swing the whole thing. the thing is, jeff flake is a critical donald trump but he is also a republican and like everybody in this case is voting along party lines. if he is not persuaded by the investigation and if his opinion changes, brett kavanaugh if his opinion changes, brett kava naugh could be if his opinion changes, brett kavanaugh could be sunk. that would bea kavanaugh could be sunk. that would be a major blow to donald trump. i used to work in washington, dc and the thing i have heard from people they make is that ultimately, they think the republicans are going to win this nomination, but it is going to affect them very badly in november. there is a story in the times tomorrow on this, it talks
11:40 pm
about how women will hit hard in the midterms because they are so disgusted by the behaviour of republicans over this. the caveat to that story, it is included in it, which is fascinating, is that it will hurt them in the house of representatives, but it could actually help republicans in the senate because of the very strong number of evangelical voters who backed trump despite his own sexual misdemeanours, and despite his kind of estrangement from family values, specifically because of the abortion issue. and in the supreme court, he promised those voters he would put conservatives on the bench. promised those voters he would put conservatives on the benchlj promised those voters he would put conservatives on the bench. i find this very difficult to compute, how and evangelical can forgive the sexual misdemeanours because they feel it is secondary to the issue of abortion. —— an evangelical. feel it is secondary to the issue of abortion. -- an evangelical. and after the me too campaign, senators
11:41 pm
on both sides will be aware of how this will play with female voters. it isa this will play with female voters. it is a race against time, because if they do lose the senate, the democrats will have the majority to block brett kava naugh's democrats will have the majority to block brett kavanaugh's appointment. right at the heart of this, quite disturbing, is how one woman's trauma has become a political football. i think it is disgraceful she was ever put in that situation. i think anybody with any dignity would say, look, you should not have to do this. if brett kavanaugh had been consulted i think he would have said, i don't think it is fair that my personal ambition should trump your trauma. but of course, his actual reaction was very different. he came out and showed a similar level of the motion against these claims. lindsey graham, again, an influential republican senator, he made a very angry statement about this, decrying the whole process. again, you are just watching this
11:42 pm
from afar, wondering how america got into this position where everything is now treated like a reality tv show. it feels like we have reached a climax of a season finale with this, andl a climax of a season finale with this, and i guess the mid—term elections will be when it is decided, whether the republicans hold control of the senate and the house. most people seem to think the house. most people seem to think the house will flip over to the democrats. the senate is very much in play. if they lose one or both of them, that will probably mean impeachment hearings against, if not brett kava naugh after all of impeachment hearings against, if not brett kavanaugh after all of this, certainly donald trump. ijust felt so certainly donald trump. ijust felt so strongly, much like jason did, watching the lady on trial and earlier this week, i think you couldn't be... that word that you used, on trial. and she shouldn't be on trial, but it felt like she was. really interesting, that is what it felt like stop the senate hearing is about brett kava naugh felt like stop the senate hearing is about brett kavanaugh but she was the one having to go through the excruciating detail of this alleged
11:43 pm
sexual assault. yes. meanwhile, back in the uk... guess what it is, guess what it is? another hugely divisive political issue. back to brexit. the front of the i, future of the uk at risk from johnson plan. this is the latest rattle in the battle for brexit. yes, boris johnson, never one to keep his opinions to himself, he has popped up and said two things of consequence. firstly, he said he wants to get rid of checkers. we know that. this is the prime minister's plan. yes, her planned race off to brexit which she has been pushing ever since the summer. borisjohnson quit the been pushing ever since the summer. boris johnson quit the cabinet over that plan and he is really increasing the rhetoric and tempo of the discussion. in an interview with the discussion. in an interview with the bbc today he refused to say that's theresa may, that he would not challenge theresa may. in
11:44 pm
westminster parlance that means he is definitely thinking about challenging theresa may. in the i we have david cork, the justice secretary, not a very well— known cabinet minister but pretty influential behind the scenes. he has come out and said that if mr johnson's strategy was to prevail, it would split up the united kingdom. so the brexit wars are continuing, the tories are as divided as they were, and of course the party conference begins on sunday. so all of this will be on show for the world to see, and the journalist like jason and i to follow at every turn. we will all be there. no surprise, over in the telegraph, that jacob rees—mogg, there. no surprise, over in the telegraph, thatjacob rees—mogg, a key brexiteer, is acting boris‘ plan for a canada style arrangement, a much looser free—trade deal. for a canada style arrangement, a much looser free-trade deal. this is so much looser free-trade deal. this is so predictable i am not sure it cou nts so predictable i am not sure it counts as news. the daily telegraph, when it comes to brexit, i am not even sure it is a newspaper any
11:45 pm
more, rather than a propaganda sheet. jacob rees—mogg, a brexiteer, a classic example of man bites dog, dog bites man, he is backing boris johnson. this is not the ideal run—up toa johnson. this is not the ideal run—up to a conservative party conference for a prime minister who, you know, this is going to dominate what happens in birmingham, and she would be desperate to try to talk about domestic issues and get back on the front foot on that after quite a strong conference for labour, where jeremy quite a strong conference for labour, wherejeremy corbyn and john mcdonald kind of made up. yet she cannot escape the shackles of brexit until it is all she can't do. of course, what happens at the party conference can make it even harder when she is about to go back for another really important eu summit. the optics are pretty terrible, because the salzburg summit a few weeks ago, that was meant to be a stepping stone to a breakthrough in
11:46 pm
brexit, people were saying that she would get warm words from european leaders, go into a conference and they hang with me, please don't judge me, i am they hang with me, please don't judge me, lam making progress, and just ignore boris johnson, judge me, lam making progress, and just ignore borisjohnson, nobody really cares what he says. but that did not go quite to plan, as we re call did not go quite to plan, as we recall it, at that saltworks summit. sol recall it, at that saltworks summit. so i imagine theresa may metaphorically may be practically dripping herself in the unionjack and saying britain can do this, my plan will work, and she will keep pushing forward. to those beginning moments in the process, when anybody criticised the process, people said that people are undermining the chances of success. boris johnson is speaking at a rally on tuesday, and what will be interesting to see at that rally is tasi advance what is said to the bbc and what he said in
11:47 pm
this interview? does he speak specifically about the policy of theresa may's that policy, but not theresa may's that policy, but not theresa may's that policy, but not theresa may herself. does he start to say, well actually, if she won't be in the policy, they may need to think about pinning her. if he goes in that direction, you will see this turn into a full— blown symbol right asa turn into a full— blown symbol right as a customer had. he is not the only conservative that will use this asa only conservative that will use this as a beauty pageant. this will be walking down the catwalk by various senior conservatives, some in the cabinet, as well, saying look, i am ready, and the interesting thing about boris johnson in ready, and the interesting thing about borisjohnson in particular is that he is popular with the grassroots, but not so popular with the mps. and when you get to a ballot of party members, it is a big question. more about to come in the coming week. a couple of other front pages to look at. the daily mail has picked up on facebook story, hackers raiding 50 million facebook
11:48 pm
accounts, potentially pretty serious, there is. this is another hack of the big social media platform. again it is us, the users, who have two acknowledged that a lot of our personal details may have been leaked. we have no idea who has done this hack. if you have been asked to log back into facebook today, that is a good sign that you have been one of the targeted people, without alarming anyone. but this could have big consequences for facebook, because, first of all, their share price has dropped 3% today. millions of dollars wiped off the company. 50 million thousand a lot, but don't forget that they have 2.2 billion users. the key thing about this is going to be defined. up about this is going to be defined. up until now, when facebook has this kind of hacks, they say sorry, we will make sure this won't happen again, but we now have gdpr, the
11:49 pm
strong eu rules about data hacking, and they said they could front up to 496 and they said they could front up to 4% of global revenue. if they push all the way on that, they could be over $1 billion in fines for facebook for this data breach. the fbi is now investigating, but it shows how beholden we up to these platforms that know so much about us. platforms that know so much about us. potentially very serious for the company, sebastian was saying. they are not only are run. they had this cambridge analytica scandal earlier which are still not resolved. but they are under pressure because of they are under pressure because of the way they don't have any control or have limited control over what is published on their website and whether it is terrorist material or other kind of slightly offensive subject matter is, and, as sebastian says, there was this big question, and we are onlyjust starting to chip away at it, about how they hold a huge amount of darfur. is it right
11:50 pm
that private companies hold a large amount of data that they have garnered for free from us individuals. it could help us in terms of medicine, political things, and at some point, we need to say it should this be in public and is not private hands? let usjust go to the front page of the daily telegraph. this is a matt about the conservative party conference. i hope you can see that picture, which has a couple of people saying, i will, this must be the place... finding what appears to be the conservative party conference, but quite a few of the letters seem to be missing. a reference back to last year. this is bring back bad memories of theresa may's keynote speech, and she had a difficult time with borisjohnson speech, and she had a difficult time with boris johnson making speech, and she had a difficult time with borisjohnson making trouble over brexit. her leadership was in
11:51 pm
question. a party was again in a terrace position. things started to fall apart. that was before she had a coughing fit and could hardly even managed to get her words out. a coughing fit and could hardly even managed to get her words outm some respects this year, the conservative party is not risking it. their letters will not be making it. their letters will not be making it. hopefully this time the speech will not be quite as cataclysmic. it. hopefully this time the speech will not be quite as cataclysmiclj was will not be quite as cataclysmic.” was going to say... we're out of time. thank you both very much indeed. that is it for the papers denied. you can see the front pages of the papers online the bbc new website. —— tonight. if you missed the programme, you can watch it on the programme, you can watch it on the bbc iplayer. a big thank you to my guests this evening. jason beattie, from the daily
11:52 pm
mirror, and sebastian payne from the ft. and from us all, goodnight. europe have a bite—3 lead after staring comeback on the opening day of the cup. the usa were 3—1 up after the morning fourballs just outside paris. —— tonight. but europe rallied in the foursomes. they haven't done it before. andy swiss was there. even before sunrise, they gathered in their thousands. a peaceful parisian morning about to get noisy. rhythmic clapping. europe were soon cranking up the volume, the team and their fans united in decibels. but the us were also in bullish mood, so when the first pairs finally emerged, justin rose and jon rahm for europe, the anticipation was deafening. cheering.
11:53 pm
at first, though, the hosts couldn't live up to it. rose and rahm's hopes came to a watery end on the final hole, as the us won the first three matches. the bookies favourite in ominous form. cheering. commentator: superb! butjust when europe needed something to cheer, step forward tommy fleetwood. raucous cheering. his victory, alongside francesco molinari, was the inspiration they needed, and come the afternoon, what a turnaround. rory mcilroy with a touch of a conjurer, as he teamed up with ian poulter. the european talisman with another of those celebrations. commentator: yes, in she goes! he loves it, look at him! suddenly, the hosts were unstoppable, winning all four matches — a clean sweep to take a 5—3 lead. once again, the ryder cup
11:54 pm
delivering high drama. and so, a day which had threatened disappointment has ended in delight for europe. the challenge now is to convert their astonishing recovery into victory. andy swiss, bbc news, paris. calum smith knocked out fellow brit george groves to take the wba super middleweight title and win the world boxing super series. it was the first major boxing event to be held in saudi arabia. cameron smith hit george groves with a flurry of punches in the senate round. the youngest of four fighting brothers, one of which, liam, having held a world title. there wolfpack are closing in after beating leeds in
