this is newsday. i'm nuala mcgovern in london. a similar the headlines: places. 7— 12 degrees. a similar story in the sunday and monday. huawei isn't backing down. showers, perhaps longer spells of it's suing the us government on the day its chief financial officer appears at her first extradition hearing. rain, thunder, wintry weather in president trump says he'll be very high ground. the further east you disappointed if reports north korea are in the uk, the better chance of is rebuilding a rocket staying dry with not as many showers launch site are confirmed. but the pattern continues into next week. the jet stream stays to the i'm rico hizon in singapore. also in the programme: south of the uk but it will keep us behind bars — the us singer r kelly is back in custody after a court in relatively cold air. this area of hearing over unpaid child support. high pressure looks like it will not and why many foreign students make much progress but if it makes a are choosing australia rather than britain or america to study. little ball progress, and there is a chance, it made bring something a little calmer. next week generally more rain and snow over high ground, strong winds, feeling rather chilly with the chance that it may turn calmer later. we will firm up on all those details and keep you up—to—date.
11:31 pm
hello. this is bbc news with shaun ley. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment — first the headlines. the home secretary, sajid javid, says he'll do all he can to give police the resources they need to fight knife crime. the latest victim was a man in his 20s, who was stabbed to death in east london this afternoon. a muslim convert has been given a life sentence for planning to kill dozens of people in central london, including oxford street. a father is jailed for 16 years for planning an acid attack on his own three—year—old son — five other men are also jailed for their part in the plot. a bbc investigation finds that critically—ill patients in rural areas have to wait on average 50% longer for an ambulance than those in urban areas.
11:32 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are dia chakravarty, brexit editor at the telegraph and jack blanchard, the editor of politico london playbook. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the metro reports intruders ransacked the house of football manager brendan rodgers, while his family were at home the guardian goes with the home secretary backing police calls for more funding. the mirror also goes with knife crime, carrying news of another murder in east london. the telegraph says the cabinet thinks the government will lose next weeks important vote on theresa may's brexit deal. city am lead with the us trade deficit hitting a ten year high — despite president trump's reduction plan. and the times has an investigation into the use of tax havens by billionaires. it is usually a sign it has been a
11:33 pm
quiet newsday when you have a mixed selection of front pages. nonetheless, we cannot quite escape it, can we, dia, brexit on the front page again. this story again is going back to the prime minister's deal, which suffered a massive defeat in january. deal, which suffered a massive defeat injanuary. it deal, which suffered a massive defeat in january. it was deal, which suffered a massive defeat injanuary. it was an historic defeat, the deal was voted down by 230 votes. that same deal, a hesitate to say same deal, the plan was for some tweaking, it seems the hopes for that have been dashed because geoffrey cox could not get much out of the eu, anything at all out of the eu, reports suggest. one of the country's most successful advocate has not persuaded on this, apparently. we hope that the eu said that geoffrey cox was trying to look for a legal solution for a political problem. that is a quote widow. the plan is for the deal, in some shape
11:34 pm
01’ plan is for the deal, in some shape orform, to return to plan is for the deal, in some shape or form, to return to the commons on tuesday next week —— quote we heard. what we are reporting today is that even some ministers are resigned to the fact that that bill is not going to go through and they are thinking about the numbers that they are looking at, between 60 and 100 is the size of the defeat they are looking at as far as the government is concerned. what is interesting is that a government source has told my colleague in this article that it is not impossible that the bill, that the deal then comes back to the parliament again on wednesday, after having suffered a defeat on tuesday. they have said that it is not impossible that that does happen. what is more likely, is that it will appearfor a third what is more likely, is that it will appear for a third time what is more likely, is that it will appearfor a third time in front what is more likely, is that it will appear for a third time in front of the commons on the week beginning the commons on the week beginning the 18th of march. what is not at all the 18th of march. what is not at a ll clear the 18th of march. what is not at all clear to me is what is actually going to change in orderfor the bill to be able to come back to the commons. because rules dictate that
11:35 pm
u nless commons. because rules dictate that unless it substantially change you cannot keep bringing the same bill to the commons over and over again. a glutton for punishment, you might say. i think what happens after tuesday, assuming theresa may does lose again, does partly depend on how big the defeat is. nobody really saw it coming back in january. it was literally the biggest defeat that has ever been in the house of commons. that is true. how far kenti narrow that gap this time? if it is quite a small margin of defeat, then there will be some hope in downing street that we only have a few more mps most to change, we just need a little more thing, where almost there, we can show eu —— how far kenti narrow. if this is a total hammering like last time, then the eu look at that and say why would we bother trying to meet you halfway when you are nowhere near getting
11:36 pm
this through? it is a credibility issue. it is. the eu look at this and their view is that if they stand firm all that is going to happen is a softer former brexit, which, of course, is in the eu's interest. so why would they bend over backwards to give geoffrey cox and theresa may the things they are looking for, because their assessment is no deal is not going to happen, there is no majority for that in parliament, therefore we stand firm and we will get something closer to what we want. is that your sense as well, dia, that in the end the no deal option is one that enough mps are prepared to kill off. that has been the idea for brexiteers, if you take no deal of the table you effectively give no negotiating room, because then what is the great? precisely. that has very much been the drg
11:37 pm
brexiteers' view. what has been possible, astonishingly, for the prime minister antil now is that she has been trying to tell both sides of the party of the brexit debate, the true brexiteers annie remains supporting mps that their versions of brexit are sometime possible, it isn't. it cannot be —— until. next week the most important thing we will see is that that debate will be decided once and for all. which side of the party de she actually side with? it reminds me of i like to believe three impossible things before brexit, alice in wonderland. let us move onto the front of the guardian. jack, this is from an exhibition designed to make us all feel a little less depressed about the brexit arguments. feel a little less depressed about the brexit argumentslj feel a little less depressed about the brexit arguments. i have not seen the whole exhibition yet but i have seen some photos on the news
11:38 pm
bulletin earlier. it is a nice snapshot of a country in some turmoil, shall we say. britain is changing, it is having a moment, if you look at it from the outside. and what martin, one of our great photographers, has done is try to capture this in a slightly comical way. we can do with a bit of fun in britain at the moment. it is terribly dry, a lot of the conversations we have. we had our moments with geoffrey cox singing at the conservative party conference. it was one of the up and roots. this lovely picture of a staffie which someone lovely picture of a staffie which someone has dressed in an england shirt. martin pipe there. let us move on, with some relief, do something other than brexit. a summer something other than brexit. a summerand something other than brexit. a summer and serious question, the number of young people who have lost their lives over this past you to knife crime. no way says that the
11:39 pm
government is absolutely focusing on this —— now a sense. government is absolutely focusing on this -- now a sense. you say absolutely focusing on about britain leaves the eu in three weeks, in theory. there is a limit to what one government can do at one time. this week this issue has suddenly crystallise in a big way for the government. there is a sense of panic. that they are not on top of it. that the story is getting away from them. we have seen in other death to day, i'm sure that will not be the last one that happens this year. there is real pressure now, on theresa may and on sajid javid, to be seen as getting a grip on this. the problem is it is a long—term problem that will take long—term solutions. that will not cut it. this week when people are wanting to see something done. unsurprisingly, you are seeing something of a personality clash between his two big figures in government. there is not a great deal of love lost between them anyway. number 10 certainly thinks sajid javid is
11:40 pm
manoeuvring for a leadership... lovely phrase that. sajid javid has not been backward about coming forwards about the things he thought theresa may got wrong in the home office. you have these big two figures in the govern clashing on this hugely topical issue. this is a prime minister who is in a position to sack nobody —— government. prime minister who is in a position to sack nobody -- government. as we have seen with other government ministers this week to happen perhaps been performing at the top of the game, without mentioning anyone in particular. she cannot be making any more enemies at the moment when she needs every french can get. it would be difficult for her to sack somebody like sajid javid who was trying to get a hold of this... javid who was trying to get a hold of this. .. just because he disagrees with her approach. this is something most of the country might actually find something that they can support in making sure that whatever necessary is done to address this. sorry. please. every newspaper is talking about the story. some of the
11:41 pm
figures coming out were astonishing. i was reading that fewer than half of the offences of knife possession resulted in the event are being charged in the six lost to september last year. that makes it must to september. it is quite a drop. the other thing i found astonishing september. it is quite a drop. the other thing ifound astonishing is that when charged only 36% of knife crimes resulted in an immediate jail term. apparently a lot of this is because magistrates feel that they cannot sentence some of these offenders because of prison space being in short... everything reads like quite a dystopian situation where all sorts of things are going wrong in orderfor this where all sorts of things are going wrong in order for this sort of a scenario to arise around knife crime. i was surprised by how it is —— outspoken senior police officers have been. it is a politicaljob. you have to keep good relations with government, you are also politically neutral, at the same time you have
11:42 pm
to articulate for your profession. sara thornton, who will be leaving office very soon, is saying effectively that there is a strategy, the governmentjust hasn't resourced. it was agreed last year and they have not resourced. resourced. it was agreed last year and they have not resourcedm resourced. it was agreed last year and they have not resourced. it is not a surprise to hear the rank and file speak up and have a go. those police chiefs, it is a difficult balancing act. i think when theresa may stood up on monday and try to make out that there is no link at all between, you know, the level of crime and the number of police officers, i think she upset pretty much everyone in the police force at that point. i think they felt that was the time to speak up was up since she said that it is not a line that has been repeated by the prime minister. it is not a wise thing to say. it is not a position taken by the home secretary. indeed. i don't suppose it is a position taken by many members of the general public. everyone can see there is a link
11:43 pm
between police officers and levels of crime, that is why we have police officers. this is a problem for debate for government, the argument was made powerfully by theresa may in the home office in 2010 onwards, when she was home secretary, in implementing the reduction in police funding, which was part of the austerity project to bring down public spending, as a share of national wealth, it was to say, look, there is no automatic connection. that it is possible to reduce the number of police officers without affecting crime. in a sense, that repudiates the whole argument, the position she adopted and has adopted for her parilla. that is right. it is a valid point that she will have two look at —— her cabinet parilla. it is not going to go away. one other point that will have to be made is that we have two look at how we expect our police to spend their time. increasingly, a lot of the time. increasingly, a lot of the time they are involved in hate
11:44 pm
crime, sometimes not even hate crime detection, by preventing people or dealing with people saying things that people should not be saying, which doesn't even amounts to a crime. all these things seem to come under police, well, under the police now. there is another argument or another debate to be had as to if thatis another debate to be had as to if that is the best way our police time is to be used, should other things be prioritised before looking at people being unpleasant to each other? it is just such a complicated matter. there are things that have to be dealt with. but at the moment it does look like a dystopian scenario where everything seems to be going wrong. and the psion, the inside pages reporting, that theresa may plans to adopt an approach in schools to prevent knife crime, the risk of offending. at the front page
11:45 pm
isa risk of offending. at the front page is a cry from the newspaper ever caught —— editorial team. it is important to remind us that this is about young people's why is being brought violently and prematurely to an end. in a sense you could be accused of trivialising it when you talk about party political points or the home secretary's possible leadership. it is one of the aspects we see up close but the bigger picture is also there. the story inside speaks to something important which is this is notjust a story something important which is this is not just a story about police. something important which is this is notjust a story about police. there are reasons why this crimewave is happening now. the ministry of justice, the court systems, schools, local councils, youth services build up local councils, youth services build upa local councils, youth services build up a picture of why this is now
11:46 pm
happening. extra money in police is not going to turn it around. there are isa not going to turn it around. there are is a generation of kids who think it is ok or necessary to be carrying blades. more bobbies on the meet will not solve it. a good news story for the telegraph in terms of campaigning for women from business but also bad news about what it tells us about the financial situation for women in business. we launched this campaign because we found there was a massive gap. we talk about starting businesses with only half as much capital, for women
11:47 pm
as opposed to men. the good news story is that, i suppose, that campaign was picked up by the treasury and appointed someone in order to do this report and look into it and come up with suggestions that both the government, banks and other lending authorities can do in order to allow women to enter the market more easily and have more capital at their disposal in order to set up a business. there is rightly a lot of talk about glass ceilings and an equal pay. this is an issue completely overlooked, entrepreneurs and what they need. we hope we are now starting to see some action on it. glass ceilings and boys as directors but most women,
11:48 pm
just as most men, will never be on a board of directors that this is about setting up a small business and you need funding. especially with the digital culture. there are jobs for the future. in the times, a couple of stories in the front page. we will save the bbc story for the. excuse me. this is again, talking about telegraph investigation prompting this government review of one left this times investigation will prompt one as well. have billionaires always done this a little bit? the scale of it is eye—catching. on the third of british billionaires have moved to tax havens over the past decade which is a big number but... i do not know many millionaires... but
11:49 pm
didn't they always move to monaco? it is very difficult for the government to do something about this. you cannot keep people in the country. they are running assets from their tax havens and said he would like to think there are ways of doing back some of the huge loss these are costing us but, ultimately, if they are not doing anything illegal and there is no suggestion of that, it is very difficult. you can say something must be done but if people want to move to these tax havens... what it needs is a global solution. the problems are the tax havens. we need a united front in trying to clamp down on these sorts of places. let end with these high—tech bbc plan to ta ke end with these high—tech bbc plan to take drama out of family viewing. no
11:50 pm
more fighting over the tb control. take drama out of family viewing. no more fighting over the tb controllj more fighting over the tb control.” think that is a bit ambitious. to say it. people to fight over the remote control just say it. people to fight over the remote controljust because there is an exciting voice telling you there is only five more minutes... voice activation systems that will ask you what sort of programme you want to watch and it will help you choose and programme what you and your partner and maybe your children want to watch. what i found really funny is the reason quake that a recent study found we spend an hour a day searching for programmes. up 30%. that makes me feel really good about my relationship because either was just us. in a selfish way, it makes me feel relieved i am not the only
