11:30 pm
hello. i'm babita sharma in london. cop changed this thursday, 10 degrees at a push for many and it the headlines: theresa may promises to step down as prime minister — in a bid to push will feel substantially colder. 0ne through her brexit deal. common theme throughout, the nights this is bbc news with ben brown. the house of commons votes will remain quite chilly with a on a range of alternative frost possible here and there and as we'll be taking a look at tomorrow options for brexit morning's papers in a moment — and rejects them all we start thursday morning, close to what next? areas of high pressure, latest of first the headlines. we're live at westminster. the wind in the south and a great mps fail to resolve the brexit i'm rico hizon in singapore. deadlock after they were unable also in the programme: chance of frost and mist and fog to to reach a majority on the eight begin with which will have cleared quickly through the morning. if alternative options put to them anything on thursday for many a in a ballot. sunny day. still some cloud lingering in the far south—east and boeing says it's modifying the far north—west of scotland with the far north—west of scotland with the odd spot of wind. to the east of the software in its 737 max planes — in respect of mr kenneth clarke's following two deadly crashes — but insists the aircraft are safe. high ground, 15, 16 degrees and parts of scotland, could hit 17 or motionj, customs union, the ayes a rare invitation to meet 18 in south—east wales and the we re motionj, customs union, the ayes myanmar‘s military — were 265, the noes were 272. so the midlands. as you go into thursday night, the skies remain clearfor noes habit. many. across the south whether windows lighters, the greatest the striking thing about the results chance of mist and fog. patch further north but a big change we have just seen is two of the through the day will be increasing amounts of cloud starting to nudge propositions, the customs union and a confirmatory referendum, received into the west. especially the more votes tonight in the house of further north you are with heavy commons than the prime minister's rain across scotland, wind easing deal got when it was defeated for through the day. that will introduce the second time. something a little more chilli, earlier, theresa may offered temperatures dropping in stornoway to stand down in return for conservative mps passing her brexit deal. but in a blow to the prime minister,
11:31 pm
the dup said it would still vote later but in central england, 18 against her agreement because it threatens the union celsius as possible. as we go into between northern ireland the weekend it is the start of the change. the weather front and scotla nd change. the weather front and scotland will have pushed its way and great britain. southwards to take us into saturday introducing sunny weather back to what we can't agree to is something scotland. a damn start for somebody that threatens the union, which has could be snow around in the finals, particularly for shetland. southern a strategic risk to the union, areas stay dry with increasing hazy because, for us in the democratic sunshine, in between on the weather unionist party, the union will front where we will see shall a lwa ys unionist party, the union will always come first. refrain in parts of england and wales by the end of the day and it separates the less cold from the distinctly chilly. if you think that weather front as opening the door to the cold air, that works its way hello and welcome to our look ahead southwards and the cold air rushing to what the papers will be and for all of us as we enter sunday bringing us tomorrow. with me are caroline wheeler, but as the high—pressure building we deputy political editor shut off the feet of cold abbott the of the sunday times, cold air remains in place so it will and henry mance, political correspondent of the financial times bea cold air remains in place so it will be a widespread frost to start sunday morning. cloud across the many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. style that makes south and a couple of wintry showers in the north—east, good sunny spells for most even if only one story on the front it there is a bit of cloud. some of of the telegraph — theresa may offering to quit
11:32 pm
if her brexit deal passes. you will be sitting in temperatures of single figures. the high—pressure the metro also goes taxes through into monday and with the prime minister's another widespread frost. a fair bit offer to conservative mps. the financial times reports the same of sunshine once again on monday to get the new week under way but story, but says there are doubts notice that there is cloud and wind the deal can pass due increasing to the west of scotland and northern ireland later. to the opposition of the dup. 0utbreaks and northern ireland later. outbreaks of rain pushing and preceded by hills snow and it will more on theresa may's still feel a little on the chilly side out there. even with the plight in the times, with an atmospheric blue tinted photo to illustrate it. strengthening sun tempering feel somewhat. as the weather front goes through during the middle part of the week we open the door once again the sun splashes with what it calls ‘ther—exit‘. toa the week we open the door once again to a rush of even colder air and a the mirror also has a go at some wordplay, bit of wind chill to go with it the headline ‘the end of may‘ a reference to the fact the pm has reportedly offered sitting next week overall, compared with this side of the clock change, to quit on may 22. it will feel colder. great chance to the guardian leads with those see rain at times mainly in the north and west. west wintry showers indicative brexit votes — well but how long that cold air lasts is crucial because the low where mps voted against every option they had come up with. pressure to the east of us will and the i also covers political developments, dominate and some rain at times, and has some of the vote results particularly in the eastern areas and the high—pressure to the west, at the bottom of its front page. will it bring something a little less cold 7
11:33 pm
will it bring something a little less cold? not as martyrs this week but certainly a change from how we those are the front pages. let us start the week. we will keep you look in more detail. starting off with the times. most of the papers, there is the indicative votes out of updated. there is the indicative votes out of the story where the commons could not agree on anything. but they have all focused on theresa may and that offer to resign if tory mps, including brexiteers, will vote for her deal she will fall on her sword, make that sacrifice. but it does not seem like it will be enough. this was always going to be the gamble. this was the last row of the dice to get enough support behind her to get her deal through. it is understood there have been discussions for some time and certainly in our people we have reported on a number of occasions that even whips were talking to mps for a few weeks saying that if she were to say she would go would it make a difference? it looked for a few minutes like it might make some difference. we saw borisjohnson who obviously has been one of the key people that have continually opposed her deal say that it was enough to persuade him
11:34 pm
to switch sides, following in the footsteps of jacob rees—mogg, to switch sides, following in the footsteps ofjacob rees—mogg, who obviously, any front page of the daily malleus today, came out unapologetically professed he would 110w unapologetically professed he would now back the deal because he really felt there was a concern that they would lose exit altogether. the problem she has got is that there is still this rump of eog members, that is the european research group who are the real hard brexiteers, who are the real hard brexiteers, who are saying that they will still not backin are saying that they will still not back in any circumstances. they do not think it is exit. the thing that wilkinson number ten the most tonight is the dup and that statement that came out this evening and arlene foster, the leader of the dup has now said that in a clip that it is the irish backstop that really is going to stop them. something they cannot do anything about. they have been to brussels and try to renegotiate the irish backstop they ha rd renegotiate the irish backstop they hard border in northern ireland and there is nothing doing fulljob again it is looking not particularly
11:35 pm
likely she will get the support she needs to see it through. on the bottom of the front page of the times is a sketch from quentin letts, he is saying that when she went to talk to tory mps in that committee room, which was absolutely packed out, standing room only, in fa ct, packed out, standing room only, in fact, people could not get in there, tory mps are quentin letts says "agreeing to quit cannot have come easily, the craving of these top politicians for the highest office is almost animal, it is instinctive, predatory." he captures the mood of it and the flavour very well. theresa may has always been one step behind what people have been demanding of her. these ideas that she may go, there was a confidence vote she survived in december, but has she played this card earlier the risk is that her authority would have gone away, would have reduced, she would have become a lame—duck
11:36 pm
prime minister. but i think she needed to bring matters to a head on various things before she did, already such a head of steam had come up, people had dug into the trenches. although she has won some people over, steve baker, mark francois, these numbers of the erg are not easily won over, she has not woi'i are not easily won over, she has not won the dup, who are crucial for jacob rees—mogg. we seem like we have ta ken a jacob rees—mogg. we seem like we have taken a step forward but it is only half a stab. carolyn, your paper these sunday times, the big splash about the coup in the cabinet, 11 cabinet ministers who are going to mount a coup. what happens about? i think tim shipman who wrote this story felt quite vindicated this evening and has talked about the fact that the result of that coup has been delayed and this is the end game. we don't know what happened at chequers over the weekend. we had members of the cabinet coming out and publicly saying that they were not trying to oust her, that they were not trying to get rid of her, but at the end of the day there were obviously
11:37 pm
discussions had there with the key players about what it would take for them to back that deal. we have now seen them to back that deal. we have now seen that she will pay the ultimate price with herjob. what is interesting, also, about the terms of the atmosphere in the corridor, we we re of the atmosphere in the corridor, we were all there, the whole lobby was packed into that corridor this afternoon, is that actually the speech she gave wasn't necessarily emotional stop people were desperate to hear details of her crying or her voice cracking and this is one of the things that quentin letts refers to, but what they said at the end of it is that it was the best bit she had given in her entire premiership. there were then comparisons made with margaret thatcher with the end of her tenure as well, that she was banging at the end of her, now she was released from the kind of pressures of office. and the public will never see it. it was behind closed doors. 0ne will never see it. it was behind closed doors. one of the interesting comparisons is, the coup, reported to at the weekend, we were talking about installing someone like david lidington, someone seen as a
11:38 pm
moderate, europol, someone who voted remain as an interim prime minister, the reason that brexiteers like borisjohnson have come across is that easy chance of installing one of their own as prime minister. although you might say it is the coup having a delayed effect, in fa ct coup having a delayed effect, in fact the result of it could be very, very different. this is not david lidington who was about to take over. michael gove was the other possible. we had two different paper suggesting two different people. michael gove would have had a similar effect on the other side. he would have had remainers up in arms if michael gove had taken over. there was a possibility... he is the bookies favourite. at least a dozen tory mps are considering running. dozen! i have about 20 on my list. i doesn't seems quite conservative! both the times and the telegraph have almost the same picture of theresa may in her car, which seems to be the usual photo these days of
11:39 pm
her in the back seat. i was saying that. i think people have struggled for nearly three years to understand what goes on inside theresa may's had, what is a strategy, what is she thinking under this incredible stress, facing a challenge that no re ce nt stress, facing a challenge that no recent prime minister has ever faced. disliked by large numbers of hermps, faced. disliked by large numbers of her mps, distrusted by her cabinet, these photos try to bring you close to it. for many people she remains a black box. an enigma. the daily mirror has the end of may. a slightly convoluted headline based on the idea that your parliament ackley bridge the plan we would be leaving, well, one of the eu dates is may 22 ——if parliament backed the plan. some members of the lobby had seen messages plan. some members of the lobby had seen messages that suggested that there was a timetable in mind for a leadership contest this summer, which will take place very shortly
11:40 pm
01’ which will take place very shortly or would start shortly after may 22, with a new leader potentially in place byjuly. with a new leader potentially in place by july. it with a new leader potentially in place byjuly. it seems quite early. who would win that? that is a very difficult call to make. that is why iam asking. difficult call to make. that is why i am asking. the person who seems to making the most ground at the moment isjeremy making the most ground at the moment is jeremy hunt. which making the most ground at the moment isjeremy hunt. which is surprising, because if you speak to members of the public they assume that boris johnson is a shoe in for the position. the problem is boris johnson hasn't actually been popular since he crashed out of the race... is he not popular in the wider conservative association? he is. but you have to get to the final two. he not get to the final two? that has to be seen. there will clearly be a final break that candidate. we think dominic raab will stand, michael gove will stand, we think there will bea gove will stand, we think there will be a concerted effort against with those candidates trying to stop borisjohnson getting those candidates trying to stop boris johnson getting into those candidates trying to stop borisjohnson getting into the run—off, because they think once it
11:41 pm
happens it is an inevitability. henry, could you end up with sajid javid orjeremy hunt and then they brexiteer com a hard brexit to like borisjohnson or brexiteer com a hard brexit to like boris johnson or dominic brexiteer com a hard brexit to like borisjohnson or dominic raab? brexiteer com a hard brexit to like boris johnson or dominic raab? that is very possible. people might say that the conservative membership, which tend to be more eurosceptic than the parliamentary party, would then go for the brexiteer. i met someone then go for the brexiteer. i met someone today who want to david cameron back. you never know who you get. i don't think he is available. the whole cycle again! call another referendum! the last conservative leadership referendum was a complete mess. people drop of for reasons no—one had predicted. all bets are off, really. just make dropped out. those indicative votes. that is the second strand of the double—stranded story today. parliament is getting its opportunity to say what it wanted, what he didn't want. and it said no to eight different options. quite a good headline. parliament
11:42 pm
finally has its day and it is no, no, no. this is what europe has been tearing its hair out about. parliament seems to know what it doesn't want but doesn't know what it does one. this is more of the same. to be fair, we were not necessarily expecting that something would come back with an outright majority. just explain, procedurally, this is not then finally saying no to all these options. this is indicative, as it is. the thing to point out is that at this point it is non—binding as well. theresa may has made it clear it is not binding because they may be options that are putting forward we simply, they are no go already, because brussels would find them too unpalatable. 0r because brussels would find them too unpalatable. or they are against the conservative party. all they are against the manifesto. what was interesting and you probably agree with this, some of them got quite close, but two of them got much closer than she got with her deal the second time around, which was both the customs union option and also the confirmatory second
11:43 pm
referendum. we are likely to see this coming back. you have two processes running in twin track. you have a likely to go again trying to get her own deal through and at the same time you are likely to see another go by oliver letwin on monday to try to narrow down those choices. but it sounds like there will have to be some kind of arrangement in terms of how you vote next time around so that you end up with something that is more conclusive than we have seen today. say it ended up with parliament coming out and announcing a customs union? what happens then? or is there an election? in our political syste m there an election? in our political system if parliament resolves that it wants something it has strong political force and if it wants it can put that into law and the government must obey. parliament, in
11:44 pm
some ways, has the final say the doubters on whether can reach a consensus. teresa has a couple of weapons. she can resign immediately and leave it to someone else. finally she can say i am calling a general election, to change the make up general election, to change the make up of parliament. so customs union... it could go there but it is not something they want. a couple more front pages. for anyone who is bored with brexit by now i will have to disappoint you. more brexit on the metro. i think the metro always have great front page headlines, don't they? i must give sub editors their credit stop and again, teresa in her car. this message works for borisjohnson because in her car. this message works for boris johnson because although in her car. this message works for borisjohnson because although he has many concerns around the divorce payment in the backstop and worries about the deal. what he has now decided is that phase two of the
11:45 pm
negotiation is more important. more important to have a new face. he has no idea who that may be... but for the dup i wonder if the message works because they have dealt with theresa may's government. they don't trust her as a person but they sounded out conservative leadership hopefuls and found that they are not as committed to the union and they do not understand the way the uk is set up as strongly as she does. so actually it is not a brilliant message. an interesting issue. do you think that's right? the people at borisjohnson you think that's right? the people at boris johnson do you think that's right? the people at borisjohnson do not care about the irish border issue? we have seen repeated opinion pieces that suggest that they do not and somehow, you know, there are issues that concern the much more than the irish border. while people have never been explicit in suggesting they throw
11:46 pm
northern ireland under a bus, many of us have inferred from some of the behaviour that that is indeed what they would do for the higher principles that they see of delivering the kind of brexit they believe the country voted for. what is also interesting about the position of boris johnson is also interesting about the position of borisjohnson is what happens with those brexit candidates when it comes to a leadership contest. jacob rees mogg is already supporting boris johnson there contest. jacob rees mogg is already supporting borisjohnson there are other people like the former brexit secretary, dominique raab who has not yet swung behind a deal. and a younger contender? exactly. and what is interesting about whether or not they want to deal with the arg or whether it is a poisoned chalice and that will be an interesting dynamic. the final one is the son. no prizes for anyone guessing what that front pages. there she is again.
11:47 pm
interesting... we talk about it so many times how europe... if she does finally go, assuming she does, europe has consumed so many conservative prime minister. thatcher, major and now theresa may. as well as cameron. she always seemed unrealistic to me but she said she has a social agenda and that she is more than brexit and she wa nts to that she is more than brexit and she wants to get cracking on it. she ca res wants to get cracking on it. she cares about inequality and justice in the legal system and other matters. has she fix those problems? historians willjudge she did not have time to do that. it must be said that when she was first in, remember people like george osborne speculating she may not last more than a few days. she was been —— she was called a dead woman walking. we all thought that when we have the general election those results in
11:48 pm
the early morning after the exit polls came out and suggested that that was in, that she would go. she does seem to be made of teflon. and thatis does seem to be made of teflon. and that is why i would not write off yet. if she can't get her deals through, and this is not her saying i'm off so back my deal. it is actually that my deal and then i leave. the alternative is a slow brexit that goes on for months and months. there is no reason that she has to go. we have already seen that the cabinet are inept at trying to get rid of her, if that is what they we re get rid of her, if that is what they were trying to do over the weekend u nless were trying to do over the weekend unless you believe that this is the kind of endgame. this is all pragmatism, isn't it, on her part? ultimately will we steal —— see a deal where she does not get the deal through and she keeps going, until december. thank you very much. i
11:49 pm
don't think i've ever done a review where we have only ever done one story but you both have made it entertaining. that is it for the papers this evening. don't forget you can see the front pages of the newspapers online on our bbc website which is there for you seven days a week. if you miss the programme you can week. if you miss the programme you ca n always week. if you miss the programme you can always catch up later on on bbc iplayer. from all of us, a good night to you. hello — this is sport today live from the bbc sport centre. coming up on this programme:

11:51 pm

11:52 pm
2017. until just medvedev. he last won the title in 2017. untiljust over medvedev. he last won the title in 2017. until just over an medvedev. he last won the title in 2017. untiljust over an hour. next he faces cameron anderson and afterwards he said he will be wary of his serve. lord sebastian coe has opened old wounds and claiming that gender classification is needed in women's sport. the 800 metre champion is challenging the item lower left over its bid to restrict the levels of testosterone. these plans called unnecessary, humiliating and harmful. a ruling will be made next month. does snooker have a problem with sexism? rebecca kanner is ranked third in women's world snooker but had to quita women's world snooker but had to quit a local league because some clu bs quit a local league because some clubs have a men only policy. the governing body says it is disappointing and unacceptable.” was just told i will not be able to play in that fixture, i would have to stay home. what reasons did they give you? we don't let our wives and
11:53 pm
so we give you? we don't let our wives and so we will not let un. we do not facilities for a lady. did that make you feel? outraged. to be told you cannot play the sport you love because of your gender is ridiculous. humiliating? yeah. and thatis ridiculous. humiliating? yeah. and that is all the sport for now. the weather remained settled across the uk with little change for the next few days. the forecast first for the next 2a hours. before we do that, let's have a look at a few nice pictures. this is the south—east of england and look at this, it could be the caribbean. st ives today. the point i am trying to
11:54 pm
make is that yes it is settled but that does not necessarily mean it is clear everywhere. some of us are enjoying clear skies but in other areas it is quite cloudy. through the night for most of us it is a temperature —— case of clear skies. in the case of the country around scotla nd in the case of the country around scotland we have a strong breeze and a bit of cloud so it will be milder, nine degrees. in the south where we have clear weather, temperature will dip down to close to freezing or below and that will lead to patchy fog, particularly in the south—west of the country. 0nly fog, particularly in the south—west of the country. only a couple of patches here not lasting for very long but take it steady if you are travelling. patchy fog is really quite dangerous. 0ne travelling. patchy fog is really quite dangerous. one minute you said in the next you don't. here is the forecast for thursday. a lot of fine and sunny weather, the south—east could turn cloudy for a time. temperature will reach 16 in london, 13 in belfast. could even reach 16 in aberdeen as well. a decent sort of day. friday, again the north—west has been brushed by with a friend so a few spots of rain for the western isles and the northern isles as well but the vast majority of the uk is enjoying sunshine. the wind will be light and temperatures could reach 17 or18, light and temperatures could reach 17 or 18, notjust london. look at lincolnshire as well, hull, a useful
11:55 pm
day for many of us. then a change is anticipated as we head into the weekend. this wiggling bunting here is the cold front. that will be moving across the uk during the course of saturday. behind the cold front we have cold air coming in from the north atlantic so temperature will drop to single figures on saturday. still relatively mild for a time in the south—east. but then, eventually, once the bunting moves through we get the cold air arriving across the uk. wind will be light but look at the temperatures. eagle figures as far as norwich, nudging 11 or 12 degrees in the south. next few days will feel like spring, some proper decent warm spring weather but the weekend you may have. 0ut your thick coats again. that will last into 00:25:56,661 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 next week.
