hello there. this is bbc news with ben brown. a way out, as both sides here become increasingly frustrated. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow ed thomas, bbc news, morning's papers injust a moment. weston—super—mare. first though, our headlines: ministers say it's crucial that now it's time for the weather with sarah keith—lucas. theresa may's withdrawal agreement is passed by mps tomorrow, but it's unclear that she'll have the numbers she needs. rapidly rising living costs mean a record number of children the month of march came in like a from working families are living lion and it will certainly be going in poverty in the uk, according to the latest figures. out more like a lamb. we have had tens of thousands of people some fine, settled spring weather in mozambique are still in desperate over the past few days. on thursday, need of aid, a fortnight after the country was hit we reached 17 in aberdeenshire. over by a tropical cyclone. the next seven days or so, a typical city, oxford, a few more days of sunshine but then a dip in the toxic substances, that could cause cancer and asthma, have been found close to grenfell tower, following complaints from nearby temperature. a cooler theme as we residents of health problems. a "dream job" for ole gunner solskjaer, who'll be manchester united manger look through the first week of april. what we have out there at the for at least another three years. moment, high pressure sitting towards the south keeping the weather settled. a cold front moving in from the north—west. it brings more cloud and patchy rain to northern and western scotland. although —— also fairly cloudy for
northern ireland. windy in the north but further south, with that so welcome to our look ahead sunshine, after the chilly start, a to what the papers will be pleasa nt sunshine, after the chilly start, a bringing us tomorrow. pleasant afternoon. more cloud for scotla nd pleasant afternoon. more cloud for scotland and northern ireland. as we with me to discuss the front pages are the chief executive of the association of work through friday evening and chartered certified accountants, helen brand and the broadcaster and author, john kampfner. welcome to both, thank you very much overnight into saturday, the cold for being with us. —— you both. front in the north starts to fizzle out a bit but also slowly makes progression further south. through the day on saturday, more cloud and many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. a few outbreaks of rain and a bit of the telegraph calls tomorrow the day of reckoning, snow on the mountains in scotland, as the government tries to get pushing in the parts of northern the prime minister's withdrawal england and wales. one conditions in agreement through the south, 18 in london, eight the house of commons. the daily mail says mps have one degrees in stornoway. a real last chance to approve theresa may's brexit deal. orat contrast in temperature north to south with the progression of the weather front. looking —— or at least a part of it. the express warns of what it calls the threat to democracy on the day south with the progression of the weatherfront. looking into the weekend, we still have the front but the uk was due to leave it starts to die a death as pressure the european union. more on tomorrow's brexit moves in from the north during the vote in the guardian, with cabinet ministers calling for the prime minister to leave day. still a line of cloud across number ten as soon as possible.
parts of southern england and south the paper also has a picture of michael gove in his shorts wales. a bit of fairweather cloud and with his dog, one of the favourites to replace theresa may. another frontrunner for the tory bubbling up further north. a mostly topjob, borisjohnson, dry picture but across the board by he started his leadership campaign by meeting mps the end of sunday we have cooler air from across the conservative party — filtering in. around 7— 13 degrees that's according to the i. oui’ filtering in. around 7— 13 degrees our top temperature on sunday. through sunday night and into the times says that eu officials monday, high pressure is still with could force the uk to extend brexit us monday, high pressure is still with us drifting off towards the east but by another year if parliament with the hot —— proximity of high does fail to approve pressure, a cold night with light the withdrawal agreement tomorrow. winds and a frost. again, england and, the sun asks the dup leader, arlene foster, to save brexit by persuading her party's 10 mps and wales should see a fine day with to back the prime minister's deal. there you are. that is bound up of plenty of sunshine. more cloud, windy conditions, some rain and the front pages. let's go through parts of —— some snow. in the them ina the front pages. let's go through them in a little bit more depth with south—east, it is still settled but full analysis. john, talk is the as we move into tuesday, the frontal daily mail, one last chance. is it system as we move into tuesday, the frontal syste m m oves as we move into tuesday, the frontal system moves its way further the last chance? is theresa may's south—east across the country so there will be a further spell of last chance. every last chance is rain on tuesday followed by wintry showers that will pack in from the the last chance and if it does not get through, is half loaf of bread, north—west. you will notice a different feel to the weather as we this half vote tomorrow, if it does head through the day on tuesday. go through, the predictions are that 8-12. the it won't but if it does go through,
head through the day on tuesday. 8—12. the best bet of sunshine is i think it does bring brexit closer eastern and southern parts. from the north—west, more of the wintry showers. it does look like a bit of byafairamount. i think it does bring brexit closer by a fair amount. i think it would be harder to stop at. hope to see how it could though, is a dup are a northerly airflow settling in but adamant in objecting to it. agree, the numbers are not there. the tory party will not support it. and fairly cold air in place through the labour don't, the dup don't. middle of next week so we are thinking wednesday on into thursday, too. a colder theme. there is a party will not support it. and labour don't, the dup don'tm party will not support it. and labour don't, the dup don't. it will chance of further unsettled be interesting to see how many conditions with some rain and wintry labour mps rebel, there are normally showers especially over the high ground in the north. further ahead, about half a dozen, it could be a late next week, friday and into next bit more. then it goes back to weekend. i pressure sits across parliament on more indicative votes, few of them on monday, and it is pretty much certain then as far as anything can never be certain even scandinavia and also high—pressure probable in these times, that will in the atlantic. some uncertainty about the details but it looks most likely that an area of low pressure be looking at a longer delay. how long could that delay be? some of will form, probably sitting somewhere to the north—west of the uk. meaning that it will be a the papers are saying it could be slightly colder and more unsettled first week of april. yea rs. the papers are saying it could be years. well, i think the point is nobody really knows and this is a cliche already in all this brexit but it is uncharted territory, but i
think if we do get to monday, we have until the 12th of april really to come up with an alternative to put to the opinion and that has to be substantive, for that long extension, they are saying we want to see something substantial, bring something substantially different. it did look from the indicative focused today that there is some movement towards consensus about the customs union idea, even putting whatever the deal is back to the people. but also the second referendum did not lose by much. exactly. was only seven or eight that it fell by, so it would not ta ke that it fell by, so it would not take that many conservatives who we re take that many conservatives who were ministers who were required to abstain to rebel and after all, there does not seem to be a government to resign from. whatever parliament says, will be executive, will the government, will number ten in force it? i think that is why you see the sense of urgency coming onto
the front of the daily mail and the drama that has been inserted into the situation, because something else happens if they do not get the situation through. yeah, once you get to a long delay, everything is possible in one of the scenarios we shall come to is the general election one. the day of reckoning, john, is the daily telegraph's take. very dramatic language that these are very dramatic language that these a re pretty very dramatic language that these are pretty dramatic times. with a picture of a rather desultory nigel farage march across britain, which found its way to aylesbury. esther mcveigh there, the former cabinet minister, joining the march. in the numbers are tiny compared to the march for... —— end. numbers are tiny compared to the march for... -- end. well, the organisers would say it is a different kind of march. well, you would, if you do not have the numbers, you would make any kind of story to... that they are suddenly determined that group, the
telegraph's editor, the guardian uses the adjective desperate, it is a catchall for the way theresa may is facing at the moment, that is one thing they can unite on. we were looking at the commentary by alison pearson on the whole, because she wa nted pearson on the whole, because she wanted to be celebrating on friday night the glass of champagne. as a leaver? as a leaver. she is now going to be having a nurofen. but i think that is probably whether you are a remaineror think that is probably whether you are a remainer or leaver, you are going to be needing to have a nurofen. also pointing out that she feels david cameron being in charge of the negotiations, we would not have been in this position and kind of squarely puts the mess at the
door of theresa may. but bizarre that she kinda talked about emollient etonianess to build consensus across party. does that mean she is saying only people from eton are capable of building consensus? well, perhaps that mean she is saying only those who have been to eton are capable of leading the conservative party. there are some people who do blame boris johnson notjust for some people who do blame boris johnson not just for holding some people who do blame boris johnson notjust for holding the referendum —— david cameron folding referendum —— david cameron folding referendum convert people who blame mr cameron for then sort of scoffing very quickly after the result and saying actually, maybe he could have negotiated a more conciliatory kind of brexit. maybe, but at the time, it did seem that somebody who had been so publicly a remainer trying to lead to the brexit process would not have been acceptable to those
who had fought for the leave vote. theresa may was of amino. well, she isa theresa may was of amino. well, she is a fences are. well, exactly, she did one interview with laura kuenssberg during the referendum campaign, almost under duress, in which she gave very qualified support for the remain campaign, but thatis support for the remain campaign, but that is the curiosity of theresa may. she betrays the referendum result as sort of 100% north korean style, everybody wants a hard brexit, and with these incredibly ha rd brexit, and with these incredibly hard deadlines, even though she never really was ideological, and from that point, that is where all the trouble began. 0k, from that point, that is where all the trouble began. ok, let's go to the trouble began. ok, let's go to the times, deadlocked britain faces another year before brexit, they are saying. britain faces another year in the european union if mps refuse to vote for the prime minister's deal tomorrow. well, to vote for the prime minister's dealtomorrow. well, that to vote for the prime minister's deal tomorrow. well, that could be
true. anything could be true. exactly, who knows? certainly, it seems like if theresa may's deal falters, as everyone is predicting, then there is going to be a longer period of time and that is even before we get to the point of negotiating. of course, the withdrawal agreement was only going to take this to the point of negotiating the future relationship, trade deals and everything that matters. john, you mentioned the election, a lot of people have mentioned that as a real possibility, do you see that coming soon? i think it is eminently possible, it is certainly the —— certainly the conservatives think, the problem they have is they can't really fight at the theresa may at the helm, so they have to have a leadership contest and then a general election but some people, i do not quite know logistically how work, saying that they want to fight a general election on the date of
the european elections in the uk does end up by holding those european elections, partly to dilute the fact that we are holding them anti— focus everybody ‘s attention on the domestic general election, but also with the hope from their perspective that they would do better than the last time. —— and to focus everybody‘s. and a sense than that they could deselect some remain oriented mps, who have rebelled and that they could change the numbers in the general election, get a longer extension in the uk will be out by the end of the summer or the autumn. it is certainly, that is a sort of robust reading of the situation. any mention leadership, because there is lots of speculation about who, assuming the prime minister does stand down, whenever that might be. —— and you mentioned. of course, everybody is jockeying already. the i have borisjohnson
primed and ready for downing street, they have him pictured on his bike. they all seem to have him cycling with a helmet. when he was mayor of london, he did not wear a helmet.“ he the front runner, do you think? in some people's mines, that is the problem. it is probably going to split along the brexit allegiances, in terms of people who we are going to see come forward. but certainly, there is a very strong section of there is a very strong section of the conservative party membership that wishes to see it. and the guardian have got michael gove, they call him the favourite, he is a p pa re ntly call him the favourite, he is apparently the book is's favourite. yeah, with a very nutty pair of mini shorts. -- bookies's. they all go on 1°95, shorts. -- bookies's. they all go on jogs, borisjohnson shorts. -- bookies's. they all go on jogs, boris johnson he shorts. -- bookies's. they all go on jogs, borisjohnson he used always with them won't shorts, david
cameron used to do the same thing. —— natty. cameron used to do the same thing. -- natty. it is because they are all running to the leadership. very good. anyway, who do you think is going to get it? well, i'm in the system is that the parliamentary party chooses two, whittled down to two and then it is anyone's guess. that it is down to the small number of rather elderly, shires based conservative party members. but they will sort of favour bias? if it comes down to, the anti— johnson campbell do anything to make sure that he is not one of the two because of the ends up being one of the two, than a matter with the other person is, he will end up getting it. —— camp will.|j other person is, he will end up getting it. -- camp will. i heard a lot of names being put forward but the two that in the photographs,
michael gove and boris johnson, certainly seem to be the front runners, as you say. and it is all driving us crazy, we know that. according to the metro, we are now a nation of pill poppers, antidepressant use doubles in a decade and brexit may be a factor, thatis decade and brexit may be a factor, that is what the metro says. you want to feel there is some leadership whether it is in your business, yourfamily, leadership whether it is in your business, your family, and leadership whether it is in your business, yourfamily, and people are disturbed what's going on. and all the arguing? well, trying to cut through it and people changing their minds quite frequently. it is a serious point as well about the increase in antidepressant use in the reliance on medication but i do think people are very troubled by the times we are living in. the
financial times has the story about huawei. yes, the mega company from china whose chief financial officer is in custody in canada awaiting the possible extradition to the united states. huawei's deeply embedded in the uk telecoms bt, we are using it to, for the systems for its 56 rollout. the same with german telecom as well. the americans and in particularly, the american security updates and the british now too. there is the story in the ft pretty much warning about the safety and security of systems. systems that would be effectively run by an arm of the chinese state. is that a real concern? the hold trade while
situation is of real concern and again in terms of affecting people ‘sjobs and again in terms of affecting people ‘s jobs and livelihoods, again in terms of affecting people ‘sjobs and livelihoods, it again in terms of affecting people ‘s jobs and livelihoods, it is the position between china and particularly the usa, it is worrying for all of us because it has an impact. in this particular case, the regulator is saying it's about the rate of growth of huawei and the scale now in which its operating, it's putting its own systems at risk. are they investing enough in the security and governance of their own systems that would keep it secure? it's not so much saying that the chinese government is, there is no evidence of it and it's not being brought out in this report. we talked about the race for the top job in downing street and we are also going to talk about the race for the topjob in old also going to talk about the race for the top job in old trafford. also going to talk about the race for the topjob in old trafford. i know you are a liverpool fan. i
think that everyone can agree that ole gunnar solskjaer was a great player and he seems to be a very decent, nice guy. it is a contrast in leadership styles and the motivation he has brought to the club, the players and the fans, it's a real turnaround job. what he has donein a real turnaround job. what he has done in the past few months. probably the pressure will start now. now he has got the contracts. there will be, as there always are, huge expectations. jose munoz seemed to have done things in the second year and to have done things in the second yearand then to have done things in the second year and then got sacked in the second. —— sucked in the third. ——
jose marin yo. —— sacked. so much of it isa jose marin yo. —— sacked. so much of it is a psychological. it is about motivating people. —— jose mourinho. anyway, good luck to him but not too much good luck. i love his accent. thank you so much for being with us. 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 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 helen brand and john kampfner and goodbye. hello, this is sport today,

job, we were 11 bit ——11 points behind fourth. now i have given myself ——we have given ourselves a great chance to be in the top four and even the top three. that has got to be the short—term target in the league and premier league is vital for us. and of course, we have been discussing how to move the club forward. that doesn't mean we have saved x amount of money or x amount of players. we have sat down and discussed. now it is easier to be clear about what we need to do. we will do some business. to lift the premier league trophy again is what we expect, what we are used to, what we expect, what we are used to, what we have done so many times. we can't wait for too many years but we have to ta ke wait for too many years but we have to take step—by—step. wait for too many years but we have to take step-by-step. hurricane has received his mba for services for football. prince william presented him with the honour. —— harry kane.
