and bring something just a little bit less chilly. so as we go through the week, a lot of dry weather. some rain at times, especially in the north—west and, for a time, it will feel less chilly. hello, this is bbc news. the headlines... "playing politics" with the uk's future — that's how theresa may describes conservative mps who refuse to back her plan for brexit. but borisjohnson continues to criticise her approach, calling it "deranged". party chairman brandon lewis insists the conference will show party unity. my my focus is on making sure our members have a good conference and working with the prime minister to ensure we are delivering on the domestic agenda on the issues that matter to people and come on brexit, making sure we get a good deal for the united kingdom. officials say at least 832 people were killed in the earthquake and tsunami that hit the indonesian island of sulawesi. rescuers are continuing the frantic search for survivors. a woman in the far east of russia has told the bbc she recognises one of the key suspects in the salisbury attack as a military intelligence officer.

41/2 points to regain the ryder cup after dominating again yesterday... ben croucher reports. the battle cry created in scandinavia, the golf course in france, the rivalry created down the decades. the ryder cup is unmistakable. as the usa have found, though, it's easy to lose yourself. and, as they found on friday, it's easy to lose points, too. saturday's fourballs carried on where the friday foursomes finished. this cry, created in holywood, county down. for mcilroy‘s experience and tyrrell hatton‘s relative lack of it, fairway or rough, little mattered as europe surged clear in what was becoming alarmingly one—sided event. commentator: oh, but what a shot! what a shot from tyrrell hatton! francesco molinari and tommy fleetwood won their third point in as many matches. sergio garcia found some spanish strength to see off tony finau and brooks koepka. .. cheering and applause.
but just when another european whitewash was on, jordan spieth and justin thomas ensured they were here, and heard. still, the usa were staring at a heavy deficit, so when henrik stenson and justin rose were sent out first in the foursomes and claimed their customary points, the gap grew wider. that, under the circumstances, probably the putt of the day! fleetwood and molinari's putts may not have won such accolades but with yet another point, they became europe's fourth most successful pairing in just two days. the us were six behind, and tiger woods still hadn't won a match. but undaunted by the chasm and the potential pitfalls plain to see at le golf national, spieth and thomas sunk a strangely subdued mcilroy and ian poulter with pinpoint precision. it will be 10—6 headed into sunday's singles. only twice before has a side come from so far behind to win. the us will have to summon the spirit of brookline ‘99 if they are to create another piece of ryder cup history. ben croucher, bbc news. so in today's singles matches,
rory mcilroy will open againstjustin thomas, with paul casey out second against brooks koepka. world number twojustin rose faces webb simpson in the third game out, beforejon rahm takes on tiger woods. the first match tees off at five past 11 and you can follow all the action on the bbc website and radio five live. liverpool's100% winning start to the season may be over — but they're still undefeated in the premier league, after daniel sturridge‘s spectacular late goal rescued a 1—1 draw at chelsea. the league's top scorer eden hazard took his tally to six, and chelsea held on to the lead until a minute from time, when sturridge let fly to ensurejurgen klopp‘s side came away with a point. champions manchester city have gone to the top of the table for the first time this season — they're above liverpool on goal
difference after raheem sterling and sergio aguero gave them a 2—0 win at home to brighton. and the pressure just keeps building onjose mourinho — manchester united haven't had a worse start to a season for 29 years. their latest defeat came at west ham — they lost 3—1 to finish the day tenth in the table. when the moment is not the best, it looks like everything goes against you. even today, we could feel exactly that. it — one goal is an own goal. the first goal is the linesman mistake and second goal is the referee's mistake. obviously that — that you feel — that you feel that negativity. hearts manager craig levein said his side came through a "test of character", to beat stjohnstone 2—1 and stay five points clear of hibernian at the top of the scottish premiership. and kilmarnock are up to third, after they came from a goal down to beat motherwell 3—1 —

the paper has an interview with borisjohnson where he sets out his personal manifesto for the party to win the next general election. the paper has an interview with borisjohnson where he sets out his personal manifesto for the party to win the next general election. the sunday telegraph leads on the data breach which has affected the conservatives' conference app. the paper says the party faces a potential fine of up to £2 million. the sunday express says theresa may is planning to take onjeremy corbyn, by promising a housing and transport revolution. here, they focus on the domestic agenda. the observer reports that the government is to produce the first official guidelines on the maximum amount of time young people should spend on social media, amid concerns over mental health problems in children. the mail on sunday is launching a campaign to save parks, which it says are falling into disrepair or being sold—off by cash—strapped councils. the independent on sunday has a photograph of patients evacuated from a hospital in indonesia following the earthquake and tsunami there. its front page article is a warning to tories from damian green, theresa may's former deputy, to stop their squabbling
over brexit. they will be quaking in their boots after that warning from damian green(!) no, it is not going to go away, is it? the sunday times tells us away, is it? the sunday times tells us that, boris versus may, now it is war. two exclusive interviews, boris is not holding back in his language? not at all, a fantastic exclusive by oui’ not at all, a fantastic exclusive by our political editor tim shipman the headline says it all, boris versus theresa may, now it is war. it has been warfor quite a theresa may, now it is war. it has been war for quite a long time but as the tory party conference opens today in birmingham, boris has made his most personal attack yet on theresa may. he says he is calling her exit mac plan arranged, quite strong language —— brexit planet deranged. although they campaigned
for it, this is a quote for how much he believes so passionately in it, i believe in it, i think it is the right thing for our country and what is happening now is not what people we re is happening now is not what people were promised in 2016. not only does he do that, he also sets out a domestic agenda, which involves doing things like building a bridge to ireland. really interesting this morning. building a bridge to ireland, they also wanted adam airport on an island... if this is a war, it is a battle of the bad ideas! a bridge to ireland... we have been thinking of this all morning! and then a festival of brexit britain. this is theresa may's idea, to get everyone excited in 2022. whether she will still be there or not, i suspect it is a low ask... but interestingly, the
festival will pump billions into the british economy. billions of pounds, you may remember the millennium dome only cost about 800 million. this will be even more expensive, if it happens, than the millennium dome. maybe they should hold it there? the festival of britain, which it was modelled on, went on for a good few months, so if it happens, we will all be able to have a jolly old time there. with both of you reading both interviews, sian, take off your the times had, as a reader, who comes out best in those interviews, most robust the with a clear plan for britain's future? to be honest? neither, that's the problem. i think people on the streetjust don't believe any longer that the tory party has a clear plan that can deliver brexit. this is all written
out and signed off, though, isn't it? that is true, but the eu have already said that they do not like it. they will always say that, won't they? i think what people see in the street is this poisonous political infighting, constantly, with all of these people jostling, infighting, constantly, with all of these peoplejostling, with boris johnson and sajid javid, he may be setting up his stall at the conference setting up his stall at the c0 nfe re nce over setting up his stall at the conference over the next few days, i think it is a party in disarray. it leaves me feeling just so worried about the future for britain. who comes out on top, ben? neither of them come out well. this is a war for the favourability of the tory party membership. it isn't really aimed at the country at all. it is all big gestures. there is nothing substantive with boris johnson, all big gestures. there is nothing substantive with borisjohnson, at least in this interview. he says we are in dangerof least in this interview. he says we are in danger of not believing in
brexit, the power of the virtues in britain. nonsense. for the brexit, the power of the virtues in britain. nonsense. forthe prime minister, it's basically an ideas free interview she has given. talking about, as i have said, this fa st talking about, as i have said, this fast combination of this festival in five years' time and the other thing we will talk about is stamp duty on foreigners. dredged from the bottom of the barrel of policy ideas. there's nothing substantial to say oi'i there's nothing substantial to say on housing or the state of the country either. neither have come out well. do you think we are doing a disservice to the public, focusing on the fallout and the war in the conservative party rather than brexit itself? what it means and what it involves, what is at stake. we touch on it but most of the focus is on this, because political drama sells papers? absolutely, the human interest of it, this soap opera that has been running for months, that's what people want to read. it is easier to understand, that boris
johnson wants to be the leader of the tory prime minister —— leader of the tory prime minister —— leader of the tory prime minister —— leader of the tory party. there is brexit and the tory party. there is brexit and the chequers deal, the customs union and the rest of it. we will hear from theresa may later on on the andrew marr show, we will have reaction to what she has to say a little later. and in the observer, we are not moving on from the conservative party, the observer reacts conservative party, the observer rea cts o n conservative party, the observer reacts on the embarrassing security flaw, in regards to the conference app. it was the way that you logged in. now they are facing a fine? the story is, when you logged in, you could basically log in as a cabinet minister or could basically log in as a cabinet ministerorany could basically log in as a cabinet minister or any other senior conservatives attending, and get all of their details. you could have philip hammond's phone number, michael gove's e—mail address... it was openly available and should not have been. what a farce. they are talking about complex, technical
solutions to the irish border. now, they can't even manage their own co nfe re nce they can't even manage their own conference app! as you say, the information commissioner, it is their job information commissioner, it is theirjob to police things like that. people's data is supposed to be protected by any organisation that receives it. they obviously haven't. potentially, a £2 million fine, probably not as high as that, it will be likely to be a slap on the wrist. a terrible start to the conference, and really embarrassing. a picture in the times, a profile picture for philip hammond, a selfie there? people were logging in as borisjohnson there? people were logging in as boris johnson and michael gove, messing about on the app. it is brandon lewis, i'm afraid, who has taken the brandon lewis, i'm afraid, who has ta ken the flak brandon lewis, i'm afraid, who has taken the flak for this. and very outspoken crows in the sunday papers this morning. a senior tory said that brandon lewis, —— and very
outspoken quotes. this is a picture him with er and winnie the pooh, apparently. we do not have it. you will have two by the newspaper! the observer focuses on new observer guidelines. they do try and get some kind of domestic agenda through. this is regarding children's mental health. obviously, you are the times education editor. this is a huge problem? yes, i've a story in the sunday times today, based on a conference that starts tomorrow. they survey 20,000 teenagers and they found, no surprise, 60% of them have accounts that are private and
their parents know nothing about it. they are doing slightly risky things on these accounts, including posting intimate pictures. and it's about being bullied online, and it is the pressure among kids to look good as well. if you are sending selfies all the time, you know, children can be quite cruel, can't they? absolutely, kids are living in a social media and real world. one of the things matt hancock is considering, he has asked the chief medical officers to look at this. according to the guidelines, do not spend more than a certain amount of time on your phone 01’ certain amount of time on your phone or ipad. some schools are already grappling with this but personally, the biggest problem is when kids ta ke the biggest problem is when kids take their phones to bed or they have electronic entertainment zones in their bedrooms, they play call of duty across time zones and they do not get enough sleep. i think that is the link to mental illness. insomnia and depression, a clear link has been established. if your child is up until 2am while you are
sleeping, on the smartphone and texting friends, playing computer games, then they get up at 7am. and, they are going to be ill. no ways macgraff leuluai about it. —— there is no way about it. it worries me, in ten years' time, there will be more technology than we have now. how do you police it as a parent?|j have young children, and it concerns me too. it will be a tough nut to crack. so many adults find it difficult to deal with social media and difficult to turn off these apps and difficult to turn off these apps and restrict time. don't you check your smartphone every 15 minutes? but how do we tell our children not to do it? so many of us set such a baggage —— bad example. i do think it is probably sensible to have some kind of advice from the government,
based on the best academic research which is available, about beyond what will be harmful. about drinking, do not drink above a certain amount, whatever. the time has probably come, i think matt hancock is doing the right thing, to have some official advice on unsafe usage, we all know it can be unsafe. not many places the taxman hasn't looked at ways of getting money. according to the sunday telegraph, foreign buyers of uk homes will be hit by a new tax as well. this is being considered in cities like london, where flats are bought out by russians and chinese. now, is this all part of brexit, part of the domestic policy? where does this come from? i think it is part of the domestic policy, we have a broken housing market, and it is part of a response to jeremy corbyn‘s housing market, and it is part of a response tojeremy corbyn‘s policies that he was outlining last week.
what theresa may is suggesting is that foreign buyers have to pay a 3% stamp duty surcharge on the properties that they are buying here. i think it's very welcome. proceeds go towards helping tackle rough sleeping in this country, so on the one hand you have russian oligarchs coming in, and really pushing up prices of housing, in london in particular, paying millions for their mansions. on the other hand, we have almost any big street you go down in london, there are people sleeping rough. so, is it enough to tackle a housing market problem? i don't think so, but at least it is a gesture. it is domestic but it will be more difficult for europeans to buy property in the coming years in london! in the sunday express, focusing, this front page, on domestic policy at the party conference. it's almost as though brexit is done. i have a slightly
different view to sian, i do not think this is a good policy. prices in the capital of falling now, it is not directing... there has been an issue with foreign buyers coming in and pushing up property prices. but thatis and pushing up property prices. but that is not the issue we are facing at the moment. it is the opposite. stamp duty is a terribly designed tax. as fiscal experts say, you need a value on the property every year. it's a transaction tax, it discourages transactions and it is immediately factored into prices. it does not do what you want it to do. asi does not do what you want it to do. as i said before, i'm afraid that stamp duty is a classic milk cow for the government, whenever it wants to raise money. when they want to raise money they go to stamp duty rather than fundamentally reforming things in the way they need to be reformed. that is why it is depressing, you save xl is done but even in domestic policy it is very weak. shall we move away from the conservative
party conference? going back to the telegraph, the uk sending 800 troops to the arctic. there are concerns about growing russian aggression in our backyard. this idea from gavin williamson, the defence secretary, that will be unveiled at the conference today, or over the next few days. he is saying that russia's reopening of soviet union bases in the region is alarming, and britain definitely needs to demonstrate that we are in the area and to protect our interests. he is sending 800 commandos to norway next year and he is going to build a base in the north of the country. now, the sunday times, bridgetjones has had a rewrite with this hashtag, #metoo error. you love this story? —— era.
have you read this story? this is an essay coming out. i love bridget jones, i grew up in that era, if you we re jones, i grew up in that era, if you were a single working girl in the capital, she was talking to you in a very funny way. i think what is fun about this, what bridget does in the essay is uses those workplace moments, where... she kind of takes it. in the light of the #metoo moment, she rereads her own diaries, and remembers all of the leering and ogling she endured from male bosses. but what i particularly like, is that it but what i particularly like, is thatitis but what i particularly like, is that it is quite subtle. so, she says the thing is, sexual attraction at work is not that simple. looking back, did i actually harassed daniel cleaver? of course, it was different
because i fancied him. but anyway, i was a woman and he was a man... anyway, i just love it. was a woman and he was a man... anyway, ijust love it. it's fantastic and it makes us think. we've heard so much with the #metoo moment about how polling lean men have behaved but the truth is, women behave badly in the workplace too. you can fancy someone in the workplace and it is not, you know, a harassment issue. i wonder how many books and films will be inappropriate now because of the #metoo era and they cannot be shown any more. let's talk about the ryder cup. this duo that has been dubbed moliwood, francesco molinari and tommy fleetwood. the coverage in the observer, talking about the coverage
of the eu element of it, so many british fans, thomas kail and is british, but there, decked in the blue and gold stars of the european union. you had to get that in! the indonesia earthquake is missing on many of the front pages, which is very telling. thank you. we have the latest headlines coming up at the top of the hour. don't forget, you can see the front page of the papers online on the bbc news website. thanks to all of you for watching, goodbye. hello, a chill in the air today but
no surprise on the final day of september. extra cloud, in southern areas, sunny spells in the north—west of the uk on a brisk breeze. temperatures at best between 12 and 16 degrees, showers will fade and club melts away. and a clear and starry skies, despite a brisk breeze, temperatures dip away. in the countryside, scotland gets close to freezing. in newcastle, glasgow and edinburgh, even in city centres, two or three degrees. he mac start on monday, —— a chilly start on monday. it will be decidedly cooler, 9-15d, the monday. it will be decidedly cooler, 9—15d, the top temperatures. less chilly as we get into tuesday. plenty of fine weather to take us into the week but some rain at times, especially in the north—west. this is bbc news.
i'm chris rogers. the headlines at ten. on the opening day of the conservative conference, theresa may accuses opponents of her brexit plan of "playing politics" with britain's future. but she is facing a public battle with borisjohnson. this morning, the former foreign secretary calls the prime minister's brexit plan "deranged". party chairman brandon lewis insists the conference will show party unity. my focus is on making sure our members have a good conference and working with the prime minister to ensure we are delivering on a domestic agenda, on the issues that matter to people and on brexit, making sure we get a good deal for the uk. here in birmingham, theresa may seats to fend off her critics by telling tory members, "but loyalty and the
