hello, this is bbc news, with martine croxall. this is bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow is really going to high—pressure is really going to anchor itself across the uk and when mornings papers in a moment. first the headlines: i'm ben bland. our top stories: you get a strong high—pressure after a 22 month investigation, finally finished — system there, the jet stream is robert mueller delivers his report the special counsel's report into alleged collusion on alleged links between russia between president trump's election afflicted towards the north so that campaign and russia has been submitted to is where all the weather fronts are and president trump's 2016 campaign the department ofjustice. going, the clouds in the rain to the there are no new indictments but the content is under wraps. in a letter to mp5 tonight it's thought it'll be made north into scandinavia, just maybe theresa may suggests she might not even try to bring her twice—failed clipping the very far north—west of scotla nd clipping the very far north—west of scotland so the vast majority into deal back to the house of commons public in the coming days. at the inquest into the victims monday, tuesday and wednesday will have fine weather. temperatures not of the birmingham pub bombings almost 45 years ago, changing from day—to—day, 10— 13 but how much will be made public? another twist on the road to brexit — a witness names four ira men theresa may tells mps the planned celsius. that is tuesday. wednesday he says were responsible. police say they're treating third vote on her withdrawal deal and into the end of the week we may not happen. the death of university student the devastation caused start to see a slight change out in libby squire as an unlawful killing. by cyclone idai in southern africa — we report from one of the north atlantic here. this cold the worst affected areas. airwill be the north atlantic here. this cold air will be approaching us. reaching more rescue operations us air will be approaching us. reaching to save thousands cut off a day of remembrance us around about friday. things are in southern africa after floods and a show of solidarity — new zealand comes together a week set to cool off and perhaps become a caused by the cyclone there. after shootings at two mosques little more unsettled. friday into the weekend, next weekend but until then, it looks like the weather is going to be settled across most of 00:01:00,552 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 the uk.
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are nicola bartlett, political correspondent from the daily mirror and giles kenningham, former director of communications for number 10. most of tomorrow's front pages are in. the daily telegraph claims theresa may has returned from her brussels failure with plans to let mps vote on keeping the uk in a customs union, which eurosceptics fear will lead to a soft brexit. the i says the prime minister is losing her grip on power with control over her government and party close to collapse. the times reports that mrs may is under pressure to name a date for her departure after cabinet support drained away and the dup made clear its lack of faith in her. the ft suggests that mps are set to seize control of brexit, with parliament set to vote on a variety of options next week after ministers admitted that theresa may's deal was unlikely to be approved by the house of commons.
the guardian claims to have obtained details of secret government plans about the impact of a no—deal brexit. the confidential document is said to warn of months of chaos. and the mail has a non—brexit related story about the launch of a litter picking campaign. the paper says half a million people are making history, in the uk's biggest volunteer drive. ido i do not think that carole is one of them, rodman, that is. let's start with the conclusion of the robert mueller investigation and its conclusion about whether there has been interference or collusion by russia in the 2016 campaign. 22 months we have had to wait. no
further indictments, music to donald trump's years. so far this investigation has claimed michael cohen, his lawyer, michael flynn, his security adviser. but if you speak to people in america, it looks like he is on course. democratic hopefuls will make a lot of hay with this. yes, and you can understand why. it has been a huge circus around this investigation. 30 legal judges brought. —— charges. enough evidence to bring about those charges so it is understandable the democrats will do a lot with this as
they can. some of those accusations ce ntre they can. some of those accusations centre around things like hacking hillary clinton's e—mails to discredit her during the campaign and other things which most people regard as quite serious allegations. this may not result in further indictments and it may and with a whimper rather than a scream but it has had some lasting effect. it left a cloud over his presidency in some way. it has also raised other issues about democracy and how secure our systems and structures are these days when it is possible to flood the electorate — it has happened here to as well — with practices going on to do with analytics. fake news, the russian flooding the election with fake bots and how much
it scared the election we do not know. transparency, where people get the information. i think here, we are still far behind the curb when we're dealing with that. the other issue for donald trump his family is they are going to be under other forms of scrutiny. the dealings... but do people care? journalists care but when a lot of the stuff was uncovered during the presidential election, he still won. we know what the political establishment is like, we wa nt the political establishment is like, we want someone different and so far no—one has made anything stick on trump. democrats need to find a new way of attacking him but have not found anything yet. let's look at politics here, brexit and all its
glory. the pm losing grip on power. suggestion that the party is in uproarand suggestion that the party is in uproar and that she not in charge the government. i think they picked up the government. i think they picked up quite a powerful picture to demonstrate this. the chief web, slightly into the background, as you would expect, and theresa may in the foreground and if the expression he hasn't looking at her is to try and some up the discord between the web 's office and number 10 at the moment. and the confusion with some of those votes last week. i'll be voting for or against our amendments. it is almost farcical. theresa may gave a speech from inside downing street on wednesday night and it seemed she laid the blame at the feet of mps with really
quite strong language. mps were really offended by this and apparently gillian smith was upset as well. — julian. he has been trying to broker deals and even opposition mps to basically help the prime minister out and had going in there and making those claims has made hisjob there and making those claims has made his job even there and making those claims has made hisjob even harder. there and making those claims has made hisjob even hardenm there and making those claims has made his job even harder. it begs the question, what was the conversation they have a go. how did it go so horribly wrong? is that her ignoring the web if relationships have broken down, it is significant. we have been here before, i know, but if that has happened, it is a pivotal moment. but are we in the final days? who knows. there is no obvious person to coalesce around...
lots of people a few weeks ago making it known anything sunday papers... they were. but what does it change? nothing. personally i think she will get to a place where she gets a deal but it would be amongst game to make a prediction. — -it amongst game to make a prediction. — — it would be a mugs game. ca reta ker — it would be a mugs game. caretaker prime minister — if she steps down... this is no time for a general election but given there is no obvious contender, it would definitely spark leadership elections so multiple people stepping forward, a messy leadership election at a time of incredible — of national crisis. that has to be
bad for the country. i think a lot of people are waiting in the wings and hoping she takes us through brexit and then they will take it forward but no—one wants to take on what is an incredibly difficult situation. it is a poisoned chalice. but she survived a no—confidence vote so in theory she is safe for 12 months. until november. the ft, may‘s deal unlikely to succeed. the speaker will get to choose which indicative votes are discussed and put before the house. we do not even know yet will they go through the divisions lobbies? boko flexed his muscles earlier. —— bercow. it will
bea muscles earlier. —— bercow. it will be a question of whether he thinks enough has changed. then, of course, you have the various options mps wa nt to you have the various options mps want to bring. there is some suggestion of that coming through, amendments, led by a tory. there is some suggestion the government will wa nt some suggestion the government will want to pre—empt that and offer their form of choices... the government or theresa may kroos actually it's david livingstone who has been handling things today meeting with different parties. basically different versions of how this could work. even some suggestion of a run—off x factor
style vote, a different system. you don't like customs union, that gets eliminated... we go through it like that. that would be highly unusual for the house to do that... but we are in unusual times. you wonder how many new ideas are that we have not heard, that have not been voted down 01’ heard, that have not been voted down or rejected outright in the last 2— three years. i do not think much will be solved and we will go back to square one and what is happening you are damaging business sentiment in the country. we need to move on to the next stage. if you go outside london, the public are saying why hasn't this been done. london is a separate but i suspect that if you held a referendum you would get the same held a referendum you would get the sa m e vote held a referendum you would get the same vote again. a lot would depend oi'i same vote again. a lot would depend on the question you asked. if it was
the same question, i think it would be tricky because most of us know so much more about the eu... you would hope so. we have talked about it enough. for a lot of people, brexit actually means no deal. no connection to the single market and the customs union. to others it means leaving, not being ruled by brussels but this kind of having your cake and eat and which is a problem we have now because it is not workable. various shades of relationships with the eu and it is difficult to work out what people want. there is a possibility we could leave with no deal. if we are to extend article 50 beyond april 12, without a deal in place, then
there has got to be something significantly different to go back to the eu 27 with, something like a general election or a second vote — and another referendum, i mean. i think there is a point where we could get a deal, the labour party's proposal, a customs union with a single market alignment or a customs union in itself because that would then not need the backstop. that's then not need the backstop. that's the really contentious part. because we are all inside it. we wouldn't actually need to change the wording of the withdrawal agreement which is the real sticking point. as you say, it would have to be something major for the eu to allow this long extension. no—one really wants to contemplate it at this stage. the
issue of the customs union is immensely problematic. eurosceptics are immensely problematic. eurosceptics a re clear immensely problematic. eurosceptics are clear they don't want that. with rule takers, not rule makers. we will be governed by something which for a lot of people is absolutely what bugs it should mean. we are removed from the single market in the customs union. headlines for the birds, like that is going to pass on work. the hardcore breaks its supporters won't have it. you might as well be in the eu completely. you are in the customs union, it is fa ntasyland. people are are in the customs union, it is fantasyland. people are floating around all kinds of ideas. fantasyland. people are floating around all kinds of ideaslj fantasyland. people are floating around all kinds of ideas. i think the real difficulty when it comes to looking at what parliament will back is that all of this is seen through the gaze of the party. labour mps don't want to help out a tory prime minister. tory mps don't want to
side with labour. it's very partisan in that regard. there is some common ground. across party lines. you have yvette cooper and nick bowles have been paring up on amendments. caroline spelman as well. there is a sense in the background some alliances forming. whether any of thatis alliances forming. whether any of that is enough to really push something through, it hasn't been up until this point. something through, it hasn't been up untilthis point. because something through, it hasn't been up until this point. because of the wording that was used last night, if you've not got an agreement by the 12th of april, come back to us with another proposal. isn't that taking the pressure off them to get a solution. the canned can be kicked down the road if necessary into a much longer delay. in some ways, we
a lwa ys much longer delay. in some ways, we always hear that the eu read our newspapers and follow what is going on but i don't know if they quite understood how things play out in parliament because having that deadline of the 29th of march, in some ways, it really helped her. she can say to the less extreme breaks its supporters, you don't want to crush out. let's look at this cartoon. a number of people who % — assembled for the breaks it indicative votes march. and the charge they are saying, what do we wa nt to charge they are saying, what do we want to least? when don't we wanted? brilliant. these will be such brilliant things for politics stu d e nts to brilliant things for politics students to study. it leads us onto
the fact that there is this big march that's supposed to be happening. wejust march that's supposed to be happening. we just don't know. march that's supposed to be happening. wejust don't know. the independent is saying final march on parliament. and on top of this petition. see what the turnout is, the temperament. do you feel like there is a seachange? it feels like a pivotal moment. now the endgame, all the numbers turnout. what she has been trying to do this week as appeal to public sentiment and say, public sentiment wants a deal. mps are not in the right place. what happens next? will it force a seachange or be one of these damp scripts? marches, petitions, they might signal a change in mood. those
3.5 million people, asking for article 50 to be revoked. it doesn't change the fact that we had a referendum which said, a small majority of people wanted to leave. this marches in london? what about the rest of the country? there is a disconnect between london about what's happened. they said only 200 people for safety reasons could take pa rt people for safety reasons could take part ina people for safety reasons could take part in a breaks it must happen march. it's very difficult. it is important that we have in our democracy these expressions but sometimes they are indications of various feelings. 0n the march tomorrow, one of the things that is quite interesting, the deputy leader of the labour party, tom watson, is
going to be speaking and he be saying to theresa may, i will back your deal. this peter kyle amendment. that's the first time he's come out with something like this and it's kind of at odds with jeremy corbyn and others in his party. if it's not this deal, what is it? that's the difficulty with formulating the question. i am going to do the guardian because i've got a few seconds. sorry about this. the guardian reveals secret plans for months of no deal chaos. what is going to happen? there has been lots of warnings about delays, lines, backups and we don't know the full extent but the government is trying to plan for it. this suggest it won't be as clear—cut as they hoped. 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/papers and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. hello, im sarah mulkerrins at the bbc sport centre — gareth southgate's side kicked off their euro 2020 qualification campaign with a thumping 5 nil win against the czech republic at wembley. and it was a stellar night for raheem sterling, the boy who grew up around the stadium left with a hat—trick. young borrusia dortmund winger jadon sancho with the assist for the first. then with his second, sterling paid tribute to 13—year—old damary dawkins who died on sunday, he had been battling a form of leukaemia. there was a slice of good fortune for his third, with a deflection helping things along. harry kane also scored a penalty
and tomas kalas added to the misery for the czechs with an own goal. championship club birmingham city have been deducted nine points for breaching football league rules — they incurred losses of almost £49 million between 2015 and 2018, almost £10million more than is permitted. the points deduction means birmingham are now just five points clear of the relegation zone with eight matches still to play. this was the reaction from some blues supporters today it could have been 12, we were in trouble. a fair decision? a fair decision, you can't argue. they're it's all right, it's sad but we got the old 0 - all it's all right, it's sad but we got the old 0 — all clear to start again next season. there are too many
teams in the league, we are too much ofa teams in the league, we are too much of a big club. like teams in the league, we are too much ofa big club. like i'm said, i'm glad it happened this season and we can crack on with the rest of it. super league leaders st helens have moved two points clear at the top of the table — after extending their unbeaten start to the season to seven matches. they thrashed third placed castleford 112—12 — lachlan coote with their opening try after just four minutes. st helens ran in eight tries in total — including two for dominique peyroux. the win means they maintain their 100 per cent record. huddersfield are off the bottom after beating hull kr 42—8 in the night's other game. northampton saints are up to fifth in rugby union's premiership. they beat leicester tigers 29—15 in the east midlands derby at welford road. tom collins with two of northampton's three tries. leicester stay 10th. cardiff blues are closing in on a play—off spot in the pro 1a
— after an impressive win against scarlets. they won 41—17 against their welsh rivals. cardiff led 38—0 at half time with all five of their tries coming in the first half, including two for owen lane. but arguably, the try of the night though came from aled summerhill — completing a free—flowing team move. there were two other games in the pro 1a this evening. edinburgh beat defending champions leinster28—11atmurrayfield — that bonus point victory keeping their play off hopes alive. there was also victory for connacht over italian side benetton by 29 points to 1a. the irish side on course to reach the knockout stages. there were mixed fortunes for the british number ones in miami. johanna konta at the top of your picture is out. she lost in straight sets to china's wang qiang, who is twenty places higher in the world rankings. but kyle edmund is through to the third round after a straight sets win over
ilya ivashka of belarus. he'll play former wimbledon finalist milos raonic next. neil robertson will play ronnie 0'sullivan in the final of the tour championship. the australian beat northern ireland's mark allen by ten frames to six in tonight's semi—final in llandudno. his meeting with 0'sullivan is a repeat of the pair's players championship final earlier this month, which 0'sullivan won. now, we've seen many professional cricket players take great one—handed catches, but we don't normally see it from a fan in the crowd. but one spectator took the headlines in south africa's twenty20 win against sri lanka — producing a stunning catch. he even managed to do it with a drink in his other hand — and he didn't spill a drop! not bad at all! that's all the sport for now. goodnight.
