average, it might feel chillier than that. there are signs of high pressure building from the the mirror reports that a ministry south—west early in the week which could bring something milder and of defence aide has been tending to the graves on his behalf. more subtle. much of next week it will be breezy with sunshine and showers, some of these wintry. is. let's take a closer look at some temperatures will hover around the of those headlines. we will start seasonal temperatures will hover around the seasonal average. temperatures will hover around the seasonal average. it could be a little below at times. with the guardian, and chris grayling. people have been adding up the numbers, they have been tossing them up. the headline is calls for chris grayling to quit after £30 million ferry fiasco, but that figure is a lot higher. it is worse than that. in the space of 2a hours we learned that chris grayling had cost the taxpayer £200 million because of some of his judgement. the probation reforms he oversaw as minister ofjustice and the £33 million to eurotunnel to make up for the ferry fiasco when he was giving contracts the ferry fiasco when he was giving co ntra cts to the ferry fiasco when he was giving contracts to ferry company which didn't have any ferries because he should have let eurotunnel know it and didn't. but it is worse than
that, if £200 million isn't enough, that, if £200 million isn't enough, thatis that, if £200 million isn't enough, that is two hospitals, by the way, labour have done some calculation is that worked out that in his time in frontline politics he has cost the taxpayer £2.7 billion, 12 times as much is that, including 800,000 pounds spent on consulting fees on the ferry company that had no ferries. there is the argument to be made that if he has spent £2.7 billion, then £33 million is not that much. and tom watson, who is increasingly outside his normal bailiwick, is calling for him to quitand be bailiwick, is calling for him to quit and be sacked and everything else. the question here is what exactly is it that chris grayling has got on theresa may, and when are we going to find out about a? is this your take on it? —— about it. it is amazing he was not sacked in
the last reshuffle. well, transport is not a great reef, is it? i am not for mounting a defence of him, but transport is not a great thing to be pa rt transport is not a great thing to be part of, what did he do before, prisons. that didn't go well. actually passing reforms where there we re actually passing reforms where there were court fees for people which encouraged poorer people to plead guilty in order to reduce the amount of fine they would have to pay at the end of it, actively encouraging people to take a plead because they couldn't defend themselves. but in terms of the tory party, she is not going to start sacking people because she needs people for brexit, she needs people to vote, and he is a brexiteer. she seems to be losing a brexiteer. she seems to be losing a ministera week a brexiteer. she seems to be losing a minister a week via resignations. i don't think she needs to chase or find new enemies. he is not an enemy, he is an incompetent. he has been incompetent at everyjob he has
donein been incompetent at everyjob he has done in government for a period of yea rs done in government for a period of years in more than one department. it doesn't matter what very few are on, all briefs in front bench government departments are difficult, they are all hard and they all require a certain level of iq and at least the ability to avoid blame, if nothing else. but i can understand why she is not sacking anyone at the moment. she should have sacked him years ago. but mac it is never good when you have the prefix beleaguered. i think he is the equivalent of a sponge for theresa may, he sucks up the eye on the criticism on the complaints about everything else that is going on “— about everything else that is going on —— ire. about everything else that is going on -- ire. hears that sort of person. he will put a serious face on. lets turn to the times. -- times. good news especially if you
areafamily times. good news especially if you are a family with young kids and it is the school holidays. they do take the mickey a bit. this is an analysis of 100,000 holidays, and they reckon 20% down on normal prices, flights as little as £108 per person. it could be a really nice trip, i don't know. the problem is, with this, they are saying it could be like russian roulette whether you actually come back from these holidays because will your passport work? will you be able to get back into the country after there is no deal brexit that a lot of people are fearing? if not, there will be a deal and everything will be fine and you will have had the bargain of the century. some of these apply to family getaways of two parents, these apply to family getaways of two pa rents, two these apply to family getaways of two parents, two children, if you have single parents trying to get away, one parent going away with gran prance, you don't get the deal. you don't get that buy one, get one
free —— grandparents. you end up getting more than the so—called nuclearfamily getting more than the so—called nuclear family getting the nice deal. the headline sale price is almost never the price you pay. and people are sensible, you don't want to drag your family somewhere after seeing these headlines saying your passport might not get you back in the country, if you have six months left on it they might not let you back. you don't want to be stranded there with your two kids thinking what did i do this for a £108 a week? and also, if they are that cheap, why are they not that cheap the rest of the time? who knows how many they are selling at this price, as well. this is the price they are offering them at because they happen to have a glut, if we get a deal through parliament and everything is going more smoothly, how long will it take them to put the prices up?
in here it says they accused the department of transport of being unhelpful after running an advertising campaign urging people to accuse dellacqua new their passport. you could also accused them of being unhelpful if they didn't have a campaign saying to renew your passport, damned if you do, damned if you don't. returning to the i, a boost for the prime minister. well, her strategy, and the way she has handled things, of running the clock down to the last minute, which business leaders are so furious and upset about because it has created a lot of uncertainty, because the travel agents, as we have just seen, can't sell holidays, is actually convincing the hardliners and the people who have held the prime minister hostage for two or three years now, they are convinced that if we don't come behind this deal, some have suggested this deal on 25june 2016, people have been up in arms. but it
has got to this point where they are going if that is the best we can have, that is the nearest we have got to a unicorn, it is a donkey with a tube stuck to its head and we have painted it pink, fine. it sounds like jacob rees—mogg has come around to things, they don't want to get rid of the backstop altogether, the dup they think will at the last minute go for this deal, jacob rees—mogg is talking about little tweaks, modest concessions, just tiny little things, we are not unreasonable, they are saying. can you just put a little blow on top of it? they want brexit and they are starting to see they might not get the brexit in any form and they are willing to accept it in any form which is now available. so what do you make of the timing of nick timothy speaking saying she is relu cta nt timothy speaking saying she is reluctant remain? i think it is true, she wanted to stay. she was one of those who helped compose her brexit policy, so firstly he would
know, and secondly, if it is not the right policy for britain, which is what they were saying, that is partly his fault. just before we leave this, michel barnier says he has been speaking to develop, the european union, he is basically said, is prepared to give more guarantees that the irish backstop is only intended to be temporary, we are happy to extend it. he said the question the eu 27 will ask is what is it for and the and so cannot be that britain was to postpone a problem. exactly. -- answer. the fact that we cannot agree that was brexit should be in the last a0 years let alone the last 2.5, does not mean you will be given weeks or months to continue arguing. if you are going to have an extension and we have to have an extension and we have to have an extension because of the amount of legislation that still needs to go through parliamentary scrutiny before we can exit on wto plans, let
alone theresa may's deal, which would require ever more legislation, it means you have to have an extension. iquique go to the eu and say we have a deal but we need nine months to pass all this extension, they would say you can do that —— you need to. michel barnier has a habit... they will seyi we are going to bling. they are ready to say we will give further guarantees and assurances. what he has that about the backstop is what everyone has said about the backstop the whole way through. everyone is fed up with hearing it. the daily telegraph, bloody sunday veteran to be charged with murder. this is what is known asa diary with murder. this is what is known as a diary story. something in your diaries coming up. you do not know what will happen with. there is due to be an announcement to the end of this long police investigation into the bloody sunday shootings from 1972. this follows two separate enquiries, the first one in the immediate aftermath, which found
that not too much was amiss. yes, they kill some people, but, whatever, they were a bit reckless. then there was the south enquiry which tony blair launched and went on for a long time and reported back in the david cameron which said there was unjustifiable killings of 14 there was unjustifiable killings of 1a people, who died, it found that they were an armed. it was found to be unjustified and unjustifiable. and then the police investigation began in the wake of that. that has been going on for seven years. and we are expecting a result, an announcement, a press conference about that enquiry. that is all we know. that is all the daily telegraph knows. but they made a story out of it. there are less four of these paratroopers in the '60s and 70s, one of those mentioned that he is in god's waiting—room. he feels why is he being investigated? they were interviewed under police caution in 2016. this has been hanging overthem. at caution in 2016. this has been hanging over them. at the same time, it has been hanging over the families of the people who were shot since the early 70s as well. what is
spelt out in here is that they will be incredibly angry if there are no charges brought against anybody involved in this. it is finely balanced. they are specifically saying four will be charged or they believe four will be charged with murder. there are other charges that have been considered, attempted murder, grievous bodily harm, perjury. it is whether we once again start picking what happened in ireland again. people have said, many politicians have said, we should have some sort of truth and reconciliation, like what happened in south africa, then we can put it behind us. and with brexit we have the good friday agreement being unpicked as well. it is a time when it is very worrying to see what could happen in ireland again if there is anger on one side of the other. particularly the families. if they don't get what they perceive to be justice than they will be right... then you end up with a political decision about how we go forward and that is notjustice either. if you have a 200 and bound
enquiry, followed by a seven year police investigation, the idea that you don't charge anybody at the end of that is ridiculous. you should be doing so. especially when 1a unarmed people have died. there is some it is there. that not normal. they would argue that we were at war. they would argue that it was a long time ago, we were able, other things are going on. they point out that these comfort letters, they will do no more than two years jail and these guys face a lie. there is an obvious injustice there as well. zusi, i will ask you to do the ft, michael, i will get you to go back will stop this is a good story.“ people remember, several years ago, david cameron, 2015, embarrassed by the release of the panama papers which owed his father had been investing in panama. just resting. just resting in some cosmetic and in
panama. he benefit from that. he said we will be publishing registers of shareholders. parliament legislated for this and then parliament instructed the government to say we must be doing this by 2020. the governors agreed. the government, recently, because it is dokkoon brexit, changed its mind and said we plan to have a play by 2020 —— the government agreed. there is cross— party, —— the government agreed. there is cross—party, margaret hodge, and mitchell, they have managed to get a working majority with 20 tory mps to force the government to do what it should be doing and say it should be doing. this is another example parliament's doing. this is another example pa rliament‘s sovereignty and doing. this is another example parliament's sovereignty and holding the executive to account and making it do what it has to do and what the public wanted to do. we are not as excited about the panama papers now. but this is what we demanded and this is what we should be getting. it is mps pushing through something else. because the rest of the what goes on outside brexit. mps of all types. it is a good story about the
public. maybe the public and not to love it. it is on the front of the ft. love it. it is on the front of the ft, which most people don't buy. be daily telegraph... children getting addicted to vaping. the e—cigarettes, according to this, have created a generation of nicotine addicts. the blame is on public health england, because they have kind of back them and said they are the healthy alternative to cigarette smoking. they back a reduction plan, they don't kind of back them. kids will do things they are not supposed to do anyway. smoking. i experimented with smoking, i stakes paramedic, i smoked some cigarettes when i was a kid because i thought it was cool that make smoked. what they're saying is they will be hooked on this, they will get hooked on nicotine as a result of the big plumes of smoke. it is labelled as a
healthy alternative, but it still contains nicotine. nicotine is still a pesticide. if you are inhaling a pesticide it will do bad things for you. teenagers abby kane brains that are susceptible... that advice from public health england was towards adults —— teenagers have the kind of brains. kids willjust grab hold of anything. especially this massive contraption that taste is nicely, i presume, of chocolate or... it's not like an air freshener. it is foul. it isa like an air freshener. it is foul. it is a giveaway. the big plumes of smoke behind the bike sheds. it can be found out. i'm intrigued that children as young as 1a are saying i need help. and saying they are addicted. nicotine is incredibly addictive. it is damaging to young brains. it is the zane morse we have with cigarettes. you cannot buy them until you up 18 but you can smoke them. —— it is the same laws. until you up 18 but you can smoke them. -- it is the same laws. we are encouraging kids if they are problems in any form to come forward and ask for help. i don't remember
any kids i know who smoked at 1a or 15 asking for help. theyjust thought it was brilliant. the scientists who put this together are accusing public—health england... phe says it is 95% less harmful than smoking. but that is not really credible and only look at you —— very narrow effects of cigarettes. the time has flown by. thank you so much. it was great fun. a nice end to the week. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it is all there for you seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers, and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, michael booker and susie boniface. goodbye.
good evening. here's your latest sports news. we start in glasgow where we witnessed an emphatic victory for katarina johnson thompson in the pentathlon as she led a british one—two at the indoor european championships. after a superb morning, she was already in front after three events, but she managed just six metres, 53 with her only clean jump in the long jump. enough to consolidate her first place, but far from world record territory. her finaljump was a foul — which was when she realised that world record was out of reach. it meant she'd still have a buffer of around 13 seconds to take that gold medal home, but she'd have to run an 800 metre time that was much faster than what she's capable of.
in the end she missed out by just over two seconds. she finished with another personal best. enough to seal the deal and claim the title. as for world junior heptathlon champion niamh emerson, who received an invitation to the event from the organisers, she produced personal bests in every event to achieve her best senior result — collapsing over the line to take the silver medal. scotland's laura muir retained her 3,000m title in style, after storming away in the last 200 metres to win the last event of the evening. she lapped almost the entire field to cross the line in eight minutes, 30.62 seconds and give britain their second gold of day one in glasgow. leeds united are top of the championship this evening after trashing fellow promotions rivals west brom a—0. they didn't take long to get off the mark — taking the lead after just 16 seconds. pablo hernandez the scorer. two goals from patrick bamford and a tap in by ezgjan alioski in injury team completed the win for marcelo bielsa's side. scotland's women put in a confident performance, but were beaten in their first match
at the algarve cup as preparations continue for the summer's world cup. they were under pressure for long periods but the only goal of the game came from the penalty spot in the 82nd minute. christine sinclair stepped up to sidefoot home after a foul by chloe arthur. scotland face iceland in their next game on monday. new leicester manager brendan rodgers has been speaking about the reasons by why he decided to leave celtic — with them top of the scottish premiership and still with a chance to win the treble treble — that is all three scottish domestic trophies three years on the trot. he says he understand celtic fan's frustration that he decided to leave for the premier league. it all happened very quickly. i was presented an opportunity that came to me and, obviously, of course,
emotionally you have to take that out. and my decision was that i felt after nearly three years at celtic, with everything that we have achieved and the success we had on the beach and improvements we'd made off the pitch, that i felt it was probably then be time to move on to my next challenge. bristol bears recorded their first win over gloucester in 11 years with a 28—2a win in the premiership at ashton gate. andy uren finished off the best try of the night for bristol early in the second half and lifts the bears up to ninth. they are now 13 points above bottom of the table newcastle in the fight for survival. and it was an unhappy homecoming for leeds rhinos in superleague. their first match at headingley this season ended in a 35—18 defeat by wakefield. it is a fourth loss in five games for leeds under new head coach dave furner. castleford top the table after beating hull kr. that is all your support for now. enjoy the rest of your evening.
the record wants may have gone but it is still not call for the time of year this weekend. it will be wet at times and gets windier as the week goes on. we start with dry weather on saturday morning but will turn wet in northern ireland, the rain pushing into western scotland, parts of wales and western england, on through the afternoon, then sweeping further east as we go through saturday evening. it will be turning windier, for northern ireland in western scotland, gusts up to 60 mph to end the day i may be 70 mph in the western isles on saturday night as pressured passes close by with and insha allah. rain push it through on saturday night but linger is close to the south coast of england —— with showers. we start off with a fair amount of dry weather but rain will push northwards as storm freya moves into the uk. uncertainty about the northern extent of the rain but it will be turning storming in places, particularly across parts of an linger myles.
