11:30 pm
hello. this is bbc news with rachel schofield. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first, the headlines. nissan is expected to announce next week that it's cancelling plans to build its new model suv at its plant in sunderland. thousands of opposition supporters have taken to the streets across venezuela in a bid to force president nicolas maduro to stand down and agree to new elections. the opposition has gathered here in numbers. they believe that a process of change is under way in venezuela and that it won't be stopped. russia has suspended its participation in a key nuclear arms control agreement after the united states announced yesterday that it would do the same. parts of the uk could endure the coldest night in years tonight as the freezing temperatures continue to grip much of the country. we talk about a story of deep south
11:31 pm
racial division in the 1960s. see what we thought about that and the rest of this week's releases in the film review. hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me arejoe twyman, director of the polling company deltapoll and martin lipton, chief sports reporter at the sun. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the sunday times reveals a brexit plan to evacuate the queen on their front page. the paper reports emergency proposals to remove her majesty and other senior royals from london in the event of riots triggered by a no deal brexit. then the mail on sunday claims the tory peer and head of the climate change committee,
11:32 pm
john selwyn gummer, has been paid £600,000 from green businesses who stand to make millions from his advice. it reports mps say he should have declared the payments. he denies any conflict of interest and says he's fully complied with disclosure rules. then writing in the sunday telegraph, theresa may pledges to ‘battle for britain‘ when she travels to brussels to reopen negotiation‘s and invokes the support of labour leaderjeremy corbyn who agrees the eu must offer concessions on her brexit withdrawal agreement. the observer reveals that a group of labour mps are preparing to quit the party and form a centre group amid growing discontent withjeremy corbyn‘s leadership on brexit and other key issues, including immigration and foreign policy. there we are. plenty of —— for us to get stuck into. we will start with the sunday times. if we thought we had exhausted every angle, here is a new one. the plan to evacuate the
11:33 pm
queen. you are having a laugh. this clearly does exist. this is a plan which whitehall officials have leaked, that the queen and duke will be taken in the dead of night to a secret location, which the sunday times say they are aware of but will not disclose increase of riots triggered by brexit. these a p pa re ntly triggered by brexit. these apparently other cold war plans revisited. it is almost as if people who are actually in favour of rigs that are deliberately trying to bring scorn upon those who oppose it. it is over the top to me that nobody will take it terribly seriously. and yet we hear the theme of the idea that will be civil disorder of some form of rigs it doesn't go through because all sides, there will be people unhappy in some way. and if it does go
11:34 pm
through, there will be riots. if it doesn't go through, there will be riots. i think people might be mildly peeved. they have the energy to write. i imagine there will be some aggressive cutting. —— tutting. some are already calling it 'quexit'. the plans were already in place. many claims have been made, they have never suggested that it would be the equivalent of that. but alongside this lie they have chosen to run as their lead, there are other updates as to where we are with brexit, and this and cancellation shock is another angle they are going on. the suggestion rigs it may pay a role in the decisions made life the plant. when they talk about this model being
11:35 pm
manufacturer, it is after the vote and was hailed that they were the great view future for the british car industry post— brexit. the sudden are owned by renault. the french are pulling rank and looks as though nixon had changed their minds, and while they have still produce one car, this new suv, i note absolutely nothing. it will not be built in sunderland after all. the other issues, apparently plans foran the other issues, apparently plans for an election in june. the other issues, apparently plans for an election injune. 0h, joy. philip have on lobbying mps that a second referendum on the deputy prime minister of ireland talking about basically the eu starts no matter what mrs may might say, no, except drop. they're not interested in listening to any change of the backstop. she did negotiate and
11:36 pm
demand was putting in the first place. it is interesting. on the points martin has flagged upcoming shows we are still where we all woes were. we got there might be a general election, there might be a second referendum. we are still going around and around with the same options. all of these are possible outcomes perhaps with the exception of the queen. it shows there is still a lot to be done and there is still a lot to be done and the clock is ticking. 54 days they rightly point out here. yes, and lots can still happen. at the same time, nothing may happen. on the prime minister's agenda this week, the sunday telegraph, the prime minister heading back to speak to leaders of the 27 to say, we need to talk again about the backstop. whether she will make any headway remains to be seen. she has aptly written in the sunday telegraph to say that she will fight for britain.
11:37 pm
and they gave an enterprise that she is saying that. she has said she is how is saying that. she has said she is now giving up and leaving at the queen to balmoral? that would be different. she talks about the fax jeremy corbyn himself objects to the backstop, and she appears at least to be trying to draw some comparison. there is also mention of the fact that she will not support a delay to brexit and she still aims for britain to leave on time on the 29th of march. at the same time, there are suggestions there may be moves to achieve a special dispensation for britain along the lines that turkey has when it comes to the european elections that are taking place in may this year, there isa taking place in may this year, there is a delay, a long way past march, what happened to our mps? is a delay, a long way past march, what happened to our mp5? the suggestion is they would then be be be appointed without elections. how well that would go down with the public is yet to be seen. we can't
11:38 pm
decide on a delayjust by saying, thanks. this has to be agreed by the member states. it is a something we can issue is going to happen. one has to assume that were the british government to go to the eu and save, we need to find a better clarity here, give us six months to sort out oui’ here, give us six months to sort out our issues, which are mutually beneficial for all of us to find out, i can't believe the eu would say no. they have to believe there isa say no. they have to believe there is a chance of some agreement being found at some point. the idea of going to the eu now and telling them to rip up the thing that they only put in because you ask them to nfs places a difficult ask in fruit. maybe it is evident wrington ship, maybe that is why she has to keep no deal on the table. the one thing you do not want is a no deal exit for britain because the ramifications to the eu will be huge. if they are going to have a delay, the have to offer something. a second referendum, europe might go to that,
11:39 pm
a general election. but saying can we have an extension because we are late because haven't got around to it, i'm not sure. she is facing a new set of votes, thievery14 is it, i'm not sure. she is facing a new set of votes, thievery 14 is the next big date to watch. 0ver new set of votes, thievery 14 is the next big date to watch. over to the observer. rebel labour mps set to quit party and formed centre groups. theresa may is not the only leader with issues on her plate. we go back to the 19805 and divisions within the labour party. back then it was a gang of four, and now it may be a gang of four, and now it may be a gang of four, and now it may be a gang of six or eight. regardle55 gang of four, and now it may be a gang of six or eight. regardless of which paper you speak to, it is clear this group of mp5, which includes people like chris le5lie, angela smith, were reported they are disgruntled and di55ati5fied angela smith, were reported they are disgruntled and dissatisfied with labour'5 position on venezuela, labour'5 position on venezuela, labour'5 edition on anti—semitism and mapping probably most importantly, labour'5 position on brexit. they are very keen, it is
11:40 pm
5ugge5ted, brexit. they are very keen, it is suggested, to do something about that. whether anything actually happens whether there is a breakaway, whether there is much held in this remains to be seen. you buy this, martin? will someone take the plunge? i don't know whether they will be brave enough to take it. you have to ask, what is it within the labour party that currently exists that is the final straw that breaks the camel's back? there have been an awful lot of issues which you would have thought, and has seen people threatening posture and complain, nobody has actually lost the whip, they have done if a different reasons, nothing to do with these issues which whitlock about in terms of eccentric, a centre party. the lessons of history, people leave major parties to june lessons of history, people leave major parties tojune —— join the centre parties disappear out of politics rather swiftly. these are pretty and it is people. why would
11:41 pm
you go down the political plughole if you could avoid it? we will move on to the mail on sunday. we haven't got long. this is an expose by the mail on sunday. it is into the affairs ofjohn mail on sunday. it is into the affairs of john selwyn mail on sunday. it is into the affairs ofjohn selwyn gummer who has been taking money in a conflict of interest essentially in his role as the government's powerful climate change committee chair. tell us more. he is probably most famous for the 1990 feet in the hamburger to hi5 the 1990 feet in the hamburger to his daughter. he is now 28 years later the head of the government's climate change committee. but he also has a family run consultancy which works with companies on handouts and lucrative taxpayer funded initiatives. the suggestion, although he denies it, is that £600,000 ha5
11:42 pm
although he denies it, is that £600,000 has been gained through that consultancy that hasn't been declared. it is a lot of money and it could have serious ramifications. allegations of a convent of interest and other parties are wholly fast —— folds and misconceived says his solicitor. i know you are both the by solicitor. i know you are both the rugby fans and the sunday telegraph, great picture here of england doing its so well today in the six nations. should we be feeling like the home nations teams could do well this year? i think all three, all four of the home nations teams have a chance of progressing. it is setting up september, october. it is difficult but england had a great win today, ireland are still strong, tea m win today, ireland are still strong, team wales are excellent and scotla nd team wales are excellent and scotland are dark horses for the six nations. it is all really good and thatis nations. it is all really good and that is a massive win for england. but we have to go to cardiff in the penultimate match, and perhaps that will be the test. saying that, they had not scored more than one try in dublin since 2003. let'sjust
11:43 pm
finished because the story in the sunday times at the bottom, how we might contact the police in a rather modern way. whereas before you might have said, alex, plea5e modern way. whereas before you might have said, alex, please add ice cream to my shopping list, you can say, alexa, i cream to my shopping list, you can say, alexa, lam being robbed and please add more ice cream to my shopping list and also call the police. scotland yard are working with companies to allow people to contact emergency services, not just police, via their smart speakers. not through voice, but also automated artificial intelligence. exactly what that means and how the smart speaker will determine that police should be called... maybe some unsafe word you have to give. this might be the beginning of the end of 999 calls. go back to 1936, nothing lasts forever in this world, even 999. anything that makes people feel safe at home has got to be
11:44 pm
looked at. i don't have a problem with it. it just looked at. i don't have a problem with it. itjust seems odd. you told me from the guy didn't know. it is all very well saying, alexa, call the police. the smart speakers are tied to your physical address, and the older people being able to say, please call an ambulance, without getting to phone because of whatever reason, it could be quite useful. getting to phone because of whatever reason, it could be quite usefulm a way, it is a very oration of the thing around your neck that you press if you have a fall of something. it sounds very futuristic. it could have some interesting applications. there we are. we have run through from brexit to the police all covered in the papers denied. coming up next on bbc news, the film review. goodbye from all of us. hello and welcome to
11:45 pm
