them to back the deal, rather than delay brexit. if ministers or cabinet ministers cannot support publicly government policy and vote with it, then they have to resign, and government policy is very clear. the prime minister has said on over 100 occasions that we are leaving the european union on 29th march, with or without a deal. but most mps don't want to leave without a deal. this week, they'll vote on a plan to give parliament the chance to delay brexit if there is no agreement, and some ministers have said they could resign to back that move. downing street says the prime minister is working hard to try and get the eu to change the current brexit deal so she can bring it back to parliament, in the hope of getting mps to support it. but it's not clear when that will happen. in the meantime, these three cabinet ministers have publicly added to the pressure she is already under from so many of her backbench mps. we've had a democratic vote. i understand the chaos it's caused... one of them, who left the tory party this week,
was out campaigning for another brexit vote, still critical. we just sense the complete chaos that is now existing at the top of government, that you have three cabinet ministers who go out into the press because they can't win the argument in a deeply divided cabinet, and i'm afraid to say a prime minister who isjust not listening. but here, there was a very different message from grassroots tories today. theresa may addressed their national convention, where members voted not to delay or thwart brexit. for the prime minister, protestations on every corner. alex forsyth, bbc news. the shadow foreign secretary, emily thornberry, has accused mps who left labour this week of betraying voters, claiming the party would "crush them if they had the guts to call by—elections". speaking at a rally in nottinghamshire, ms thornberry described her eight former colleagues who've formed a new independent group as "splitters" who were "cuddling up to conservatives". the former leader of the english defence league,
tommy robinson, has accused the bbc of bias and attacked its editorial standards at a rally of his supporters. an estimated 4,000 people gathered outside the bbc‘s headquarters in salford this afternoon. footage of the panorama journalist john sweeney filmed secretly by one of mr robinson's supporters was played on a large screen. mr sweeney has apologised for making "some offensive and inappropriate remarks" during an investigation into mr robinson. the corporation said the upcoming panorama episode would follow its "strict editorial guidelines". the singer r kelly has appeared in court in chicago on charges of sexually abusing women and underage girls. ajudge set bail at $1 million and told the 52—year—old not to have contact with anyone under the age of 18. he's denied all the allegations. votes are being counted in nigeria, where millions of people have cast their ballots in delayed presidential and parliamentary elections. officials say logistical problems that forced a week's
postponement have been solved, but some polling stations were kept open because of long lines. the president, muhammadu buhari, is being challenged by the main opposition leader, atiku abubakar. there have been reports of sporadic violence in some parts of the country. our africa editor fergal keane reports from the capital abuja. many had been waiting since well before dawn. voting in the open air, each individual part of the biggest democratic exercise in african history. do you think it will change things here? hopefully. hopefully it will. but you're not sure? i'm sure it will. with the number of people that are here, i'm sure, and in every other voting centre. i'm just... i have the feeling it will change things. gone are the days where people will feel that our votes don't count. this time around, as you can see, the people have come out en masse to make sure that they exercise their civic right and we believe we are going to stay
here until the votes are counted. you can't be but heartened to see people's patience and their faith still in the democratic process here, but the big question is, whoever they elect, will they bring to an end the corruption that has disfigured public life here? when several voting machines broke down, some assumed corruption was the cause. you are telling me that this is not corruption! there were 73 million eligible voters, 120,000 polling stations, and in some places there was violence. this was a polling station in lagos allegedly attacked by ruling party supporters. far to the north in maiduguri, displaced people came out to vote despite an attack on the city by islamic extremists.
there are nearly 2 million displaced people in this region. the election isn't just about machine politics and the power of two big parties. these are young civil society activists recording reports of incidents around the country. they are working to create a genuine culture of accountability. people are hopeful that whatever decision is made, the process will improve, and if it improves for young people, of course, it means that the country improves and the hopes and expectations of a better future will come. by evening, the sorting of votes. the official counts each unused ballot. the voters call back. they want an honest result. nobody can say they don't deserve it. fergal keane, bbc news, abuja. with all the sport now, here's lizzie greenwood hughes at the bbc sport centre.
thanks very much, kate. good evening. wales are on course for a six nations grand slam after fighting back to stun england with a famous victory in the 3rd round. it was a different story in paris, though, where scotland were beaten by a resurgent france. joe wilson reports from cardiff. welcome, said cardiff, to england's team bus. well, kind of... it was a mixed reception, with crowds mixing together on the streets, and that is a six nations tradition. look at the young man, front row, every little helps. wales relied on their home advantage to shake england's composure. but in the melee, tom curry sensed a gap and took it to the line. england led by seven at half—time. wales, still behind deep in the second half, tried to build, running, passing, crashing,
recycling the ball until there was cory hill. in the 68th minute, wales squeezed into the lead. now, the welsh stadium and the welsh players were truly united. louder, higher, stronger. ball into the air and the brilliance ofjosh adams to turn it into another try. 21—13 in 2019, this year's revival of a great rivalry was a classic. and who can stop wales now? when a team is able to win 12 matches in a row as these welsh players have done, you know they have an instinct for victory. it's so powerful. wow. we felt it here in cardiff. in paris, scotland in blue were missing some key players out injured, while france rediscovered some of their spirit, scoring four tries in total for a 27—10 victory. rugby is tough enough when you win. it's exhausting to lose. joe wilson, bbc news.
well, scotland also lost to france in the women's six nations, beaten 41—10 in lille, to stay bottom of the table. ireland narrowly lost for the first time to italy. 29—27, the score in rome. italy are top of the table, ahead of england, who play wales tomorrow. match of the day follows the news, so if you don't want to know today's premier league results now, please avert your attention. england captain harry kane scored on his comeback for tottenham. but they went on to lose 2—1 at burnley, seriously denting their title hopes. afterwards, spurs‘ manager maurizio pochettino admitted he'd crossed the line when he angrily confronted the referee. elsewhere today, bournemouth drew with wolves. bottom side huddersfield lost at newcastle, and crystal palace beat leicester. manchester city's women have won the league cup for the third time.
