"driven to despair" declares the times — which features a picture of theresa may leaving parliament
11:32 pm
tonight where she earlier told mps that they had to face up to some unenviable choices after her heavy defeat. the daily mirror follows suit — writing that the nation now faces months of chaos due to a likely delay in the brexit process. the guardian describes tonight as another huge defeat for the prime minister and looks ahead to the free vote given to mps tomorrow on whether to reject the option of a no—deal brexit. out of control says the i which carries reports that downing street has denied it is gearing up for a general election. the daily mailfocuses its ire on mps who the paper says have plunged the country into chaos after letting the opportunity to deliver brexit slip through their grasp. "how much more of this can britain take?" — asks the daily express — which says tonight's result
11:33 pm
in the commons has crushed the hopes of those who voted for brexit in the eu referendum. and the financial times says the prime minister's authority is in shreds after losing control of the brexit process. it's fair to say that newspaper front pages the prime minister would be enjoying when she has her brea kfast be enjoying when she has her breakfast and maybe a few cough sweets to improve voice. sebastian payne, let's start off the daily mail. "the house of tools", and the real question is jacob rees—mogg, the european research group, other brexit supporters who voted against. a lot of people are pointing fingers, saying it is theresa may's fault, not listening to what mps said they want but a lot more of the anger is going towards the hardline
11:34 pm
brexiteers, those who are content to leave without a deal in just 16 days of papers like the daily mail which has done a u—turn on its brexit coverage. they used to be very staunchly hard brexit but is much more soft and they have this very bold headline. "they vowed to deliver the brexit britain voted for and they had it in their grasp but last night, contemptuous mps chose to plunge our despairing nation into chaos." they are right, nobody knows much what will happen. more votes over the next few days but the fact whether we leave on march 29 with a deal or no deal or no brexit it all up deal or no deal or no brexit it all upforgrabs deal or no deal or no brexit it all up for grabs because the prime minister has pretty much lost control. what does it happen next, lance? predict the future. brave man. winnowed tomorrow will be another day and there will be another day and there will be another vote. tomorrow is quite a big day in politics. the chancellor
11:35 pm
of the exchequer has to stand up tomorrow and give his spring 's statement. it's a difficult task of the best of times. then we have the big vote at the end of business tomorrow on ruling out a new deal will kind of ruling out a new deal. kind of ruling out no deal because the house of commons will certainly express a corrupted view that no deal is acceptable but the one thing theresa may has been consistently write about is that you can't take no deal off the table unless you replace it with something else and although there will be certain amendments, it is unlikely any of those amendments will offer an alternative way forward. thursday, a vote on whether to ask the european union for an extension and if that
11:36 pm
goes through, which it probably will, it's all up in the air again because that extension is not in britain's gift, it must be negotiated with the rest of europe. the guardian, another huge defeat for theresa may, 16 days, as if we didn't know it, until brexit. it's extraordinary, it a couple of weeks away. it's crept upon us. over the last three years somehow. as we've been living this lovely drama. i think the fact here is that this is really a n think the fact here is that this is really an intolerable situation. the cbi, the big business lobby group saying that businesses can't deal with this, most businesses make their investment in hiring decision 18 months in advance but now they don't have 18 days in advance so there is no certainty that businesses. boats have left japan on the way to the uk and will arrive
11:37 pm
after brexit and those cars, nobody has any idea if they will be able to land or not. the whole thing is an indictment of the whole political class, the prime minister, the conservative party, nobody willing to work together and even in the house of commons today, it's incredibly tribal with the tories attacking labour to their position, theresa may saying labour wants to thwart brexit and nobody making any effort to say we need to work together to try to fix this. the only way they could have worked together in the early majority in the commons is, am i right in saying, for a customs union which, if that were the case, that would split the tory party. that's why theresa may would never have gone to that. she did have the option after doing so catastrophically badly in the general election in 2017. try to keep the whole argument in the conservative party together, which is manifestly failed to do. might
11:38 pm
you do that? it's very tricky and difficult for her. three votes. the first time, she is going to allow members of the government to in different directions and prime ministers only do that in the most extreme circumstances. if we were to have free votes on all the various options, probably there would be a majority for a softer form of brexit which isn't that far away from the labor party position we have single market membership in some form of customs union, something very close to membership of the customs union. there probably is a majority in that. and the brexiteers in the conservative party argue that it's a remain in parliament, the majority voted in the referendum to stay within the european union survey are very reluctant brexiteers which is why we find ourselves here. the times is driven to despair and it's
11:39 pm
her being driven from parliament tonight. driven from despair. sebastian, what is her position now? a lot of mutterings about her position being untenable. either there could be an election or she could be forced out of downing street? and any other circumstances, theresa may would have been gone by now because that first vote back in january was an all—time historic defeat, losing a big piece of your policy platform would be bad enough but having a big defeat should have been the end. now she set the record for the fourth most historic defeat in the house of commons. clearly her authority has been shredded entirely. but the conservative party voted to try and get rid of theresa may back in december. it failed. it's hard to get rid of her. the only way to the cabinet came to her, the men and women in grey suits and said, you tried your best that your authority is gone, we need to change
11:40 pm
and you need to step aside. there are some report in the times tomorrow that a delegation of senior tories may ask theresa may to resign this week. she will try to cling on and slogged as possible. this week. she will try to cling on and slogged as possiblem this week. she will try to cling on and slogged as possible. if that we re and slogged as possible. if that were to happen, would they need to ee, were to happen, would they need to agree, those men and women in grey suits or whatever they were, they would have to agree on an alternative candidate? if they wanted to avoid a lengthy leadership election, there would need to be a consensus election, there would need to be a consensus candidate and there is no consensus consensus candidate and there is no consensus between the higher election —— the higher or lower echelons as to who that could be. not borisjohnson, echelons as to who that could be. not boris johnson, not echelons as to who that could be. not borisjohnson, not sajid javid. there are some who could emerge as a compromise candidate but none on the extreme wings will give up on their preferred choice. the compromise
11:41 pm
candidate straightaway. you need time for a tory leadership election. that's one of the few cards that can theresa may's hands, is that she knows as sebastian says under normal circumstances, she would be toast by now, out on her rear that they can't let her go because they don't have the time to replace her. if there we re the time to replace her. if there were an election, not unthinkable in the next few weeks or months, how would the tories do? it's hard to say because the polls are neck and neck, the tories a little bit of lent and had neck, the tories a little bit of lentand had —— neck, the tories a little bit of lent and had —— ahead. others differ. a general election would resolve nothing. you could end up with the conservatives may be losing a couple and labour gaining a couple and maybe the independent group might geta and maybe the independent group might get a few as well but roughly you would never get a decisive mandate —— mandate and what happens to the clock during this period. you can't have an election in 16 days. have got to just remember, the longer nothing happens, the more
11:42 pm
likely it is really without a deal. that is the default in 16 days' time. you can delay or kick the can further down the road, but there is no deal on the horizon. the tories would not want to go into that election with theresa may is her leader. do they have to replace her and have an election? they might feel they have a new leader, somebody take it was tainted as she is by what's going on, they would be ina is by what's going on, they would be in a pretty good position. another poll out today showing the tories quite significantly ahead of the labour party which is a searing indictment on jeremy corbyn. what kind of brexit policy with the conservative party having that election? they have rejected theresa may's choices. neither party was a general election. that is why there won't be one. is there a possible way forward for the prime minister
11:43 pm
to have another vote, but if the hardline brexiteers are facing the possibility of an extension to the whole process, they are so worried about that, that in the end they finally do vote for her deal?” think that is a scenario that is very plausible. this photo no deal, that will probably rule that out tomorrow. on thursday, there will be a vote on delaying brexit and extending article 50 —— vote. there isa extending article 50 —— vote. there is a chance of a short extension, there is talk of two or three months. mrs may does not want longer than that. the eu may come back and say we do not want to give you that, we will give you a one year or two year extension. parliament may not find that acceptable. mrs make may come back for a third time lucky fry on her deal and say to the mps if you do not back this now, could be a couple of days before brexit, it could be a long extension and we may not brexit at all. that is the last ca rd not brexit at all. that is the last card she has to play. it is a huge
11:44 pm
majority to overturn 149 mps. card she has to play. it is a huge majority to overturn 149 mpsm card she has to play. it is a huge majority to overturn 149 mps. it is coming down, gradually. look at the bright side. another 23 votes at this rate of attrition before she would get a majority in the house of commons. we have not got time in 16 days. the daily telegraph, theresa may clings on despite a second humiliating defeat. that idea, people out there, people watching the programme, they do admire her, the programme, they do admire her, the way she has stuck out the task. lam not the way she has stuck out the task. i am not sure admiration is the right word. they have some sympathy for her. they may feel sorry for her. i think that is part of the problem she now has. you could see that in the house of commons today, authority seems to be ebbing away from her. the house of commons is funny like that. you can sense when someone's authority is vanishing. i think there was feeling about that, about theresa may. that wasn't helped by her voice. that is symbolic. any of us who have been through what she has been through over the past few days, losing her
11:45 pm
voice would be the least of it, i would have thought. there is a sketch on the front page of the telegraph from alison pearson, like a dying soprano with a dalek croak, it was quite painful to watch. it was quite painful to watch. the conference speech was more painful. that went on for nearly one hour. where this statement was a bit shorter than that. i think this view about mrs may, people have generally respected her in the country. you have had all this bickering, men in particular, chartering back and forward on their dreams of a perfect brexit, while she is trying to compromise and get on with it. look at that belligerents, it is starting to look like her achilles heel, the fa ct to look like her achilles heel, the fact that she won't compromise it does make belligerence. the fact that she won't reach out to the house of commons. mps are thinking if she really going to do this? this
11:46 pm
absolutely confirms that, even if she got her deal through in the next two weeks that her authority, it was palpable today, that she won't be prime minister by the end of this year, at the very latest. the financial times, theresa may loses control brexit. in a nutshell, she lost control? is it now parliament's to control over the next few weeks or does she have a vestige of control? she has lost control. she clearly has. in the red lines will her red lines, the strategy was her strategy, and that has been fundamentally rejected. whatever sympathies we were discussing there might be for her as a human being, politically she has failed totally over all of this. and everyone at westminster and elsewhere knows that. parliament can start to reassert some control, take some control, but only to the extent of giving her structures. they cannot form an alternate government and run the country. it is not the role of parliament to do that. it can try. unless we have a government of all
11:47 pm
the talents and put these selective chairs in as an alternative government, i think that is fa ntasyland. but they government, i think that is fantasyland. but they can make life very difficult for her. what they have to do, at some point, is they have to do, at some point, is they have to do, they're called indicative votes, they have to go all the alternatives and gradually knock them all out until something is left standing. and no—one has been willing to do that yet, because they are afraid that their best stepchildren would lose out in the process. but it will have to happen. i think brexit, has dominated the news. there is another big story, thatis news. there is another big story, that is boeing. and all the problems now for boeing as a result of that latest airline crash from ethiopian airlines. yes. once we get over the latest psychodrama in westminster this is a far more significant story, following the tragedy where the crash in ethiopia killed 157 passengers on the 737 max 8 plain.
11:48 pm
there has been a grounding of the planes across europe. this has affected norwegian air, one of boeing's biggest customers for these planes. it has had to ground everything unilaterally as well. it raises big questions about the future of the aircraft manufacturer. shares were down 6% today. donald trump has weighed in, as ever, saying aeroplanes are becoming far too complicated to fly, which i am not sure if that is an industry expert view their... but clearly people do not want to get on these plans. boeing has been on the back foot over this. it is the second one of these planes that has suddenly dropped altitude from the sky. customers are likely to be very concerned about this. boeing is to be clear on these issues if it is to save its reputation. what do they do from a pr point of view, boeing, on this? they ought to be out ahead of it. the classic response to a crisis
11:49 pm
is to make sure you are doing more than people are demanding of you, rather than less. they haven't done that. the us federal aviation administration seems to be supporting boeing on this. all throughout the rest of the welcome i think india is the latest country, the federal aviation administration is sticking by boeing. that may change tomorrow. they are very close to the government. boeing contributed i think $1 million to donald trump's inauguration and the acting secretary of state, patrick shanahan, worked for boeing for over 30 years. he was actually in charge of the computer services. so there is something very, very suspect about this. a very close relationship between boeing... about this. a very close relationship between boeing. . m about this. a very close relationship between boeing... it is a su ccess relationship between boeing... it is a success story. i am sure boeing would deny that if they were here. thank you very much. 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's all there for you — 7 days a week at bbc.co.uk/thepapers, and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. goodbye.
11:50 pm
good evening. here's your latest sports news. a brilliant night for manchester city. they are through to the quarter—finals of the champions league. city beat the german side shalke 7—0 to go through 10—2 on aggregate. patrick geary reports. there might be raining english champions, but manchester city's european experience makes them champions league teenagers, according to their manager. you wouldn't want to catch them in the wrong mood, like shalk at it. this valmae is a city penalty. that meant sergio aguero and that meant one
11:51 pm
thing, this time with added style. the tie effectively over, city then got beautifully brutal. raheem sterling knew exactly where sergio aguero was. the only thing holding city up was the video assistant referee's checks. another three minutes later the screen tells you when to scream. in pulmonary terms, city are in another well to shalke. they bought a lea rhodes thuney of them to a half years ago. raheem sterling's movement for city's fourth was so fast even the assistant could not keep up. the technology corrected him. city was strutting through to the quarterfinals. bernardo silva, five. billy bowden, six, gabriellejesus, 7-0. billy bowden, six, gabriellejesus, 7—0. with manchester city are teenagers, they are anything but awkward ones. patrick geary, bbc news. cristiano ronaldo scored a hat—trick, including this penalty, asjuventus came back to beat atletico madrid 3—0 to go through 3—2 on aggregate. aberdeen will play celtic in the semi—final of the scottish cup after a 2—0 win at rangers tonight. goals from niall mcginn and connor mclennan booked their place in the last four. they've beenjoined by hearts who won their replay

11:53 pm
15 lengths clear. our correspondent andy swiss was at the course for us. well, welcome to cheltenham where we have had a real mixed bag of the weather today. we have had rain, we have had sunshine, we have had some lottery win. and the racing itself has been just as unpredictable. lottery win. and the racing itself has beenjust as unpredictable. a big upset in the feature race of the day, the champion hurdle, the two—time winner going for a hat—trick. he fell early on. that left the weekly for these 16—1 shot, espoir d'allen, ridden by mark walsh to claim an emphatic victory. a real turn up before the bookies there. one sad piece of news, with the focus on horse welfare here at cheltenham, there was one equine fatality, the horse valley water in the final race of the day. earlier oni
11:54 pm
the final race of the day. earlier on i mentioned the weather. there is a real concern about the high winds that are forecast for tomorrow, whether they could potentially disrupt or even postpone it racing tomorrow. there will be an inspection early in the morning to see whether racing can go ahead. if it can't than all of the races scheduled for day two will take place on saturday, so there will hello there. it will be another very windy day for us on wednesday with sunshine and showers. still feeling the effects of storm gareth. shown clearly on the satellite picture from earlier. it is around that swell of cloud where we see the strongest winds beginning to arrive. the winds probably by the morning will not be as strong as they were
11:55 pm
earlier on across northern ireland and western scotland. still 50—60 mph for the rush hour. the core of strongest winds of the irish sea into north—west england, onto the pennines for the likes of sheffield and leeds, could be 65 mph. further disruption is likely. it will be windy elsewhere as well. widely gale force winds. streams of showers, one in the north—east of scotland, one western scotland over the midlands. for most of the day southern and eastern england may well be dry. the winds easing down through the day. by winds easing down through the day. by the end of the afternoon some cloud and rain approaching northern ireland. temperatures should be higher on wednesday, despite the strong winds, 11— 12 degrees. the winds continue to ease down through the evening. the rain coming in from the evening. the rain coming in from the atlantic. that is across many parts of the uk overnight. the main concern is the amount of rain,
11:56 pm
continuing rain, affecting the cumbrian fails, it will lead to some flooding. temperatures overnight 5-7d. the flooding. temperatures overnight 5—7d. the main weight of the rain is likely to be overnight and early in the morning. that weather system ta kes the morning. that weather system takes the heaviest of the rain away into the near continent. we're left without front moving southwards. it will bring bring with it some patchy rain and move it down across wales into southern england. behind that north—westerly wind, strong to gale force, it will bring us sunshine and showers. most of the showers in the north and west of scotland, where temperatures will be lower, 8— nine also. further south it could hit 12 or 13. as one weather front moves away and i to the south of us, so we get another one returning from the atlantic. everything is coming from the atlantic. the wind speaking up again overnight and into friday morning with rain around. most of it is going to be across scotland and northern ireland. heavy rain over the hills. the rain pushes down into england and wales, it peters out more and more. towards the south—east it is likely to be dry, probably some warmth, 40—15. after the rain sunshine and increasingly wintry showers in scotland ——14 —
