good morning and welcome have said they will challenge the uk to a special bbc breakfast government's decision from sheffield with steph mcgovern to strip her of her citizenship in court, and charlie stayt. even though they were "sickened" today we remember the ten — the us airmen who lost their lives by recent comments she has made. when their b—17 flying fortress crashed here, 75 years ago today. the un has issued a stark warning that animals and plants vital for feeding the world at around this time on the 22nd are disappearing by the day and that the world's ability of february 19114, the crew set off on their final mission to denmark — to produce food is being put under threat by climate change and farming practices. but they never made it back to base. now it's time to look at the stories that are making the headlines in the media across the world. as we speak, ten planes we begin with the new york times from raf stations around the uk are preparing to to take part and its description of the plight in a special fly—past. of venezuelan refugees who have we'll bring it to you fled their country on foot and who fear that the deteriorating political situation will soon turn ugly. live as it happens. and moving on to brexit and the daily telegraph with its report that a group of 100 tory mps are prepared to rebel against theresa may if she cannot reach a new brexit deal.

staying in britain, on the front page of the times the home secretary faces a backlash over the decision to strip islamic state bride shemima begum of her citizenship, with some saying it could play into the hands of extremists. next we have an article on the bbc website about a new un report on the severe threat to the world's food sources due to a decline in biodiversity caused by factors including pollution and climate change. and finally to technology and time magazine which looks at donald trump's tweets that have raised some eyebrows about the development of 5 and 66 wireless technology in the us. with me is independent analyst, stephanie hare. good morning. the new york times and
5:47 am
some really shocking pictures of what can only be described as mass exodus, staggering exodus, more than 3 million people are estimated to have left the country on foot, because they cannot afford bus tickets. that is the equivalent of every man, child and woman in birmingham, leeds, glasgow and manchester fling on foot. this is a human crisis and what is shocking about venezuela is that it has oil reserves which could make it one of the richest countries in the world and this is a question of failure of governance in the world. it has gone on the years. we have seen food and medicine shortages, hyper inflation, it has decimated peoples pay. they
5:48 am
are having to go through the hindi mt, it is difficult to breathe because it is so high, it is cold, humanitarian aid stop piled out of the country that the president is refusing to accept and closing borders. the future of these people fleeing venezuela, what can they expect to find in columbia, for example? many at taking treacherous roads into columbia. on the one hand there will be a welcoming on the human level but can those countries cope with the influx? we've seen this in other parts of the world with a massive wave of people, this or it in germany with refugees from syria, refugees from africa tried to get into italy to get access into the eu. it is a question of needing
5:49 am
to resolve this on a diplomatic level. we have seen the new president of brazil trying to intervene, the us. it needs a viable resolution. the front page of the daily telegraph and theresa may, the british prime minister, flying to egypt for this arab league summit. 100 tory mps meanwhile are ready to force a brexit delay. is that even possible at this stage? it is possible at this stage? it is possible to us to extend article 50 up possible to us to extend article 50 up to the last minute. the eu is most likely to grant that extension but it is not going to be permanent and it will most likely be an till july to the real question is what do they think is going to happen within they think is going to happen within the next few months to make it worth extending. the european commission
5:50 am
president is saying he is suffering from brexit fatty, you have seen with the french and the irish leaders. this is the issue. people know that theresa may does not have the support of her party, we have seen the support of her party, we have seen fracturing within labour. we are seeing potential resignations from members of her cabinet possible. if there was some form of brexit delay, perhaps the situation on the negotiation site might not be much different at however theresa may's own ability to coalesce an agreement appears to be weakening by the day. could we see something that could lead to an election, a second referendum? it is all to play and we have a little bit more than a month ago. watch this space. in the times,
5:51 am
strong comments from the home secretary's counter extremism adviser, sara khan, who told the secretary of the move on the isis bride, shamima begum, could play into the hands of extremists. how so? if you are making someone's citizenship something that can be removed, that fx many people that live in the uk and around the world. when you are a naturalised citizen, that could be seen as a wonderful thing but in this case it is suggesting you might have divided loyalty a nd suggesting you might have divided loyalty and the government can strip it at any time. if you wanted to use it at any time. if you wanted to use it to manipulate that psychologically, you could say the british government is not welcome that you hear, that you are not
5:52 am
welcome here so that is why people are questioning this. her little baby actually was entitled to be british so the baby he was innocent of whatever the crimes of the pa rents of whatever the crimes of the parents is also potentially losing his citizenship. regardless of that, there are questions of the legality of this move, more than 500,000 people supported it. popular support the things is not always the best way to look at things that is about rights. lots of people would support the death penalty but that is not necessarily the way the politicians and even courts would interpret the law. people will react emotionally but things like citizenship should be removed in very minor cases if at all. this is an idea posited by the united nations in terms of a response to the growing threat to food production as a result of a
5:53 am
decline in biodiversity. perhaps the way out is for consumers to change habits. the planet and habitat we have taken the granted is being destroyed and it is in subtle ways, like the population of insects, bees, tiny creatures, that are allowing us to have the food we love and enjoy and we are destroying it, from pollution, climate change, all sorts of things and the only way things will change if people change their shopping and eating habits. keep your tweets coming in on that story. talking of twitter, donald trump has been at it again. he once sg trump has been at it again. he once 5g and six g wireless technology as as soon as possible and people pointing out today that its g does
5:54 am
not exist and might not another ten yea rs not exist and might not another ten years but the implication is the us is falling behind on mobile technology. the 56 technology risk is on and it is a sore point in the us that accompany owned and run by china called huawei may dominate the sg china called huawei may dominate the 5g infrastructure and that would enable them to take data back to beijing. it is almost like an arms race fear and that is why he's tried to get people excited about and setting american ambitions for six g, whatever that is. thank you very much. stay with us, so much more to come. hello there. this very mild, springlike weather for february is set to continue this weekend, and indeed
5:55 am
into next week as well. now, on thursday, we saw a top temperature of 18.3 celsius in aboyne, in aberdeenshire. and that has broken the scottish february record of 17.9 celsius, so very mild indeed for the time of year. now, this warm air is rooted as far south as the azores and the canary islands, and it's being brought up to our shores on a fairly brisk south or south—westerly wind, denoted by those orange and yellow colours. now, as we start this morning, it's going to be a largely dry one. quite breezy across the far north—west, with a few showers, and we could start to see areas of fog developing across england and wales. some of it could be quite dense, in fact. temperature—wise, a few chilly spots across the north—east of england, southern scotland. 0therwise, temperatures generally between 6—9 celsius. so that fog could be quite extensive across the midlands, southern south—east england, into east anglia, and extending as far north and west almost as the welsh marches, up into merseyside and cheshire. and it may take a long time to clear through the morning and could even hold on in one or two spots across the south—east through the day. so some areas could have a grey day.
5:56 am
otherwise, for most, another bright and sunny day, with some hazy sunshine, and it'll feel very warm indeed for the time of year. quite windy across this far north—west corner, with generally 13—15 degrees, with a few spots 17 or 18 celsius. high pressure still with us as we head on into the weekend, as well, bringing these southerly winds. but these weather fronts always trying to encroach in from the atlantic. it will bring more cloud, some outbreaks of rain, i think, on saturday to northern ireland, then into western scotland, the odd heavier burst, and it'll be quite windy too. but eastern scotland, for most of england and wales, away from the west, another fine day with some hazy sunshine after the mist and fog clears away, and again, extremely mild, 111—15 degrees, the odd 16 or 17 celsius. 0n into sunday, again some mist and fog to start off with. could have a bit more cloud across the west, northern ireland, western scotland, perhaps western wales and the west country, where it'll be breezier. and i think temperatures a degree or so down across the board. so we're looking at 12s to 13s,
5:57 am
maybe the odd spot 1a or 15 degrees across the south—east. and then, on into next week, this big area of high pressure still dominating the weather, trying to keep these weather fronts out at bay, but they will occasionally brush into the west and the north—west of the country, bringing a few spots of rain. but generally speaking, into next week, with high pressure with us still, warm days, fairly chilly nights, sunshine by day, but also the risk of fog in the mornings.
