10:40 pm
fantastic, fantastic! excellent. well done. well done, brilliant. well done. move around, do what you need to do. nobody is going to throw up, are they? give us a shout and we'll get you a bucket. jason, sam, you both did exactly what boat race crews do, which is go off hard, your heart rate rapidly rises right up to the max in the first couple of minutes. same thing, fast start, heart rate peeks out. so all we need is another two years worth of practice... and we will have you in a boat race team. i can't even stand up right now, you know how weak i am!
10:41 pm
and that was one sixth the length of the boat race? well done, good effort. rather than by me, that's all from sports day coming up as the papers, goodbye. hello and welcome to the papers. i grace blakely hello and welcome to the papers. i grace bla kely and hello and welcome to the papers. i grace blakely and kate andrews. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. starting with the telegraph, which reports the government has
10:42 pm
discussed the option of holding another referendum, if talks with labour to break the brexit deadlock fail to reach an agreement. the independent has more on the cross—party talks with a warning from the attorney general, geoffrey cox that brexit could be delayed until next year if theresa may and jeremy corbyn fail to make progress in discussions. it's a wash—out in the metro, with a picture of water pouring into the press gallery inside the house of commons, mps were told to leave the chamber and today's proceedings were brought to an early end. the financial times leads on the interim report into last month's ethiopian airlines crash, which killed all 157 people on board. investigators are calling on boeing to carry out a full investigation into the accident. the guardian leads on leaked government plans to hold social media executives "personally liable" if they fail to remove harmful content from their platforms. and, the express says a commons debate will be held after 100,000 people signed a petition calling
10:43 pm
for life—saving drugs to help children with cystic fibrosis to be made available on the nhs. let's start with the front page of the daily telegraph, teresa may push us the daily telegraph, teresa may push us towards a second referendum, grace. while, at some point some of her more hard—line critics will have to decide what they hate more. second referendum, soft brexit are what may end up as general election, we do know that they are pretty profoundly opposed to the general election, and lose their seats and corbyn comes to pirates so they hate the adls of what she's trying to do with them at the moment which is perhaps why she decided to do it to scare them into one of these options. so there are those in the cabinet trying to push the idea of a second referendum is a way to break the deadlock that even if they
10:44 pm
manage to agree, it's hard to see how a second referendum would break the deadlock because the questions on what time it would take place, what would this be? there so many u na nswered what would this be? there so many unanswered questions about what it looks like. i suppose, kate, it begs the question what would be the second referendum be on? exactly thatis second referendum be on? exactly that is that thing was the question? whatever the deal is whether it's a withdrawal dl you put it to the public and is remaining on the ballot or no deal, many argue that some sort of compromise would not be an option to make —— option for that brexit they voted for it by myself many issues around that. but the reality for the prime minister is back since the evidence to florida we saw this because, she's been working to convince hard—line brexiteers to come on—site, they had three opportunities to vote and they have not passed the deal, so now she's angling the other way looking to the compromise but it that's position speaking to labour and those on the other side, i think the
10:45 pm
question though is how serious both sides are about this because actually politically, it's not necessarily in the prime minister past the entrance to compromise with them, she may not be forgiven by the grassroots, something gets in corbin plus plus interest to work with her because if he's accused of helping her get of the line so it's good they are speaking should happen to not years ago though, it should be a bipartisan app —— effort, but quite ha rd bipartisan app —— effort, but quite hard to see exactly what they could come up please everybody both. and i agree with that i don't think she's gone into this in any way shape or form and get paid. well, you would expect if she had said i'm going to go into negotiations with corbin after the cabinet meeting you at seen lots of resignations and it would have created much more chaos. iimagine her would have created much more chaos. i imagine her plan was to stand luck i'd like to do this and push labour into a corner and we are going to therefore use it to manoeuvre some of the hardware brexiteers on the right into pushing for this deal
10:46 pm
because otherwise they are facing much softer. as far as kind of corbin is concerned, there is the point around whether or not he benefits from bli thoroughly he may get blamed for it though. but then again this is exactly what labour is pushing for the idea of a customs union is what they pushed far from the beginning and if it ends up that we leave at the customs union which essentially makes very difference, would it be any kind of pain distributed our orbit —— blame, they could cannot say we got what we wa nted could cannot say we got what we wanted and we have a strategic victory. we had news justin actually that members of the house of lords had been debating that all day, on a bell which would force the prime minister to seek a brexit extension and they did their initial approval to that bell. interesting given the front page of the independent, which has a headline from jeffrey cox the attorney general. yes he is saying that if there were to be an extension it would mean no brexit
10:47 pm
until next year. and he is suggesting what money are thinking, which is the eu will only be looking to granta which is the eu will only be looking to grant a long extension, we just had someone tonight that that president ibe you might propose a flexible extension, and that's to say the extension would be long, but if and when np is a problem that can come to an arrangement that the eu also signed off on, the uk could leave at that point, said they would not have to take the full extension. not not to be too sceptical, but what about the past two and half years as micah makes us think that all the sudden mexican just years as micah makes us think that all the sudden mexicanjust going to snap their fingers all the sudden mexicanjust going to snap theirfingers and all the sudden mexicanjust going to snap their fingers and get it over the line. and pete had kicked this can down the road, not wanting to make our decisions we have seen the two series that indicative both, if you can't come to any consensus or majority. so i think a lot of brexiteers voters are out there thinking if that's a long extension we're going to be going up to the wire yet again. a what either up prime price of public policy are we not debating or discussing right now because we are talking about brexit
10:48 pm
yet i imagine we would disagree on the answer to those very much. like very much talking about this. it's difficult to see how even dance, and many ways, the extension could potentially be good for her and provide cover, but that he about the idea of going on for extended period of time because it's like to see how a two year extension would not have to include some form of general election which i think people are scared about. but then again, what we have seen in the last two years is unless they are forced the very line and facing the threat and you know a no deal or revoking article 50 or something on those lines, and peas will not come together make a decision. they're not willing to ta ke decision. they're not willing to take the political heat, especially now you got the potential for a tory leadership election or to get something threadbare that that of the cliff edge. it comes down to a numbers game density? that has to be some sort of resolution, we can't hang on in limbo forever, presumably
10:49 pm
what is going on. it comes down to a numbers game and as he saw with the cooper amendment it comes down to one or two votes. it's impossible that a withdrawal deal could get through on one two votes. —— if possible. i think at this point the uk guys want to go and into brexit and leading the eu with some kind of mandate that we cannot get behind, so again, mandate that we cannot get behind, so again, lots of people have been critical of the prime minister going to speak to corbin and i don't agree with that because i think brexit needs to be across party political bipartisan, but it reeks of desperation right now, not afraid rather than actually compromising accounting with a alternative strategy, pulling all parts of brexit, i'm not why i'm on the customs union i think it'll stop the kid from getting free trade deals around the well, but these different price to get it will end up being the worst of all worried —— wanted to get some of the line. let's take a lighter hearted look at politics today. front page of the metro, what
10:50 pm
a shower in the house literally. today. front page of the metro, what a shower in the house literallym literally falling apart. this is another thing that took np is long time to get agreed on is what they will do about the fact that that does beautiful old buildings are literally falling apart. around them. eventually theyjust literally falling apart. around them. eventually they just about managed to get that scaffolding up on big bands of people constructing repair work but even then, there we re repair work but even then, there were some of those really far right conservative np staging protests about how big ben wasn't going to be chiming any more and i all that terrible. interesting is the first time it's happening that took too long to do something about it though. to the point about not babe —— being able to discuss anything about brexit it's a good metaphor because they were debating low charges and then the water came in and it's like every time we talk about something else here it comes a distraction. whether brexit or l sliding. absolutely, 0k, distraction. whether brexit or l sliding. absolutely, ok, let's say domestic politics to one side, and
10:51 pm
go to this very, sombre and grim story. the main story today about the ethiopian airlines crash and the preliminary report about what went wrong. grace, it has dismissed pilot error said this will be looking at boeing. and had lots of problems recently and clearly it's adding to that mondays. it is not clear what exactly that mondays. it is not clear what exa ctly ca n that mondays. it is not clear what exactly can be done about it, clearly that's going to be a massive internal review that may have to start recalling and potentially really damage the company. i think more broadly, i mean we do have questions at the moment around why these plane crashes are happening, but is down to the fact that we have more commercial flights going around at the moment, so yeah, it's clearly something that happened internally within the system and probably quite damaging for them as a company, but clearly not as damaging like all the people who lost their lives. is a
10:52 pm
harrowing story and deserves front page coverage. for the respective that's 157 people who lost their lives. and also flagging at major syste m lives. and also flagging at major system errors, because like the pilots and aircrew are doing everything right and the system was overwriting them and lead to 157 baths. i also think stories like this can scare people and feeds into oui’ this can scare people and feeds into our worst fears about flight travel and you know some people have real phobias around that, but i think flagging at means something likely will be will be done about it not to think something will happen to you when you got aircraft but when these errors happen as no tolerance for it to. this is specifically about this model planes to do isn't it, the 737 max which has been grounded so that's of the questions are. let's go onto the front page the guardian. which cracked down on tech firms. we read about crackdowns on them all the time in theory. what's the
10:53 pm
guardian got? said this is that the government is attempting to make senior executives at personally liable for content has on the platforms and it's all part of the light of the scandalous coming out recently particularly around young people arming themselves as a result of co nte nt people arming themselves as a result of content on the internet. but also putter part of a wider set of proposals dealing with a main terror, extremism all those sorts of things. the difficulty with this i think regulation lies by making them personally liable and financially liable, you create incentives for a really heavy crackdown on almost everything. and that means just like the contract will get pushed out into parts of the back lab and the less regulated price of the internet where it's harder for less regulated price of the internet where it's harderfor authorities to find it, is a very difficult question and i think it requires actually a quite a broad approach a price of all government, not to get involved in this i don't think that saying you know, fines for some people as much as they should be
10:54 pm
pressing responsibilities how to that might end up doing more harm than good. at the height of this debate is whether or not these platforms are platforms for other people to post for a light publishes its going to come to a head fairly soon, not the people want to regulate them so you could punish the chief executive and the family you can punish an editor for publishing inappropriate or liable content but ask grace points out quite rightly, if you are presently going to be liable for what other people post and you're going to severely regulate and clamp down and what others can post, the high grade than zantac is not very advanced yet to capture the back step. i think rather than going down this path of regulation, defect giants the study a lot more regulated about what out of the grave and stated focus on. the horrific instagram story about stuff i came down in many ways due to the fact people saw horrific suicidal images next to paid hybrids. after they could focus on andl hybrids. after they could focus on and i think of a tackle back, lots of people would step back and lay
10:55 pm
off about the more draconian regulations. interesting that it's actually follow the money in a way, exited? it always is, ithink actually follow the money in a way, exited? it always is, i think the bigger question actually around these tech companies are the one that's been grappling with a long time, is who governs them, and who regulates them, these are huge international but this, and often is difficult to say especially questions on tax about following the money, where are they paying and where is the profit in the same way where is the profit in the same way where i did being regulated and how. i think we are just getting really to beginning of this problem about the big internationalfirms be regulated because they're only going to get bigger and more powerful as time goes on and my sister having this conversation about who's in charge, tech companies or... it's not surprising tech is always ahead of where the line status that's as the type i think is that it brings us the type i think is that it brings us things and make our lives more convenient and better, and often times regulation needs to catch up
10:56 pm
but i suspect we don't have proper regulation in place to cover it, we are trying to push social media to traditional media scares, we are talking using popkum to help regulate, i suspect that if it adds up, we have to totally rethink what we do with the social media companies because when you have 2 billion people on a pop on my face but you can't just come billion people on a pop on my face but you can'tjust come in and say what you have to see are being punished, we have to genuinely rethink it and i think it's good to challenge the state and regulated to catch up to catch up because that's what it's amazing at. i think what's amazing about this, is you are right we don't have the regulation at the moment to deal with this, but and you are right to say this technology is potentially revolutionary, but what is preventing you from realising his potential in a lot of areas if that is technology and all of our data concentrated in the hands ina of our data concentrated in the hands in a tidy number of people and used to further profit. but we voluntarily give that up.|j used to further profit. but we voluntarily give that up. i have to
10:57 pm
stop the buffet now, i will start it up stop the buffet now, i will start it up at 11:30 p:m., that is all for the paper is right now, for this edition don't forget you can see different pages of the paper online on the bbc news website and it last seven days a week at the ditidaht code that you can't. if you missed the programme, i can watch it later on. thank you both, we will be back again. good evening. it has felt pleasant enough if you had the sunshine but when those showers came today it felt bitterly cold and we had hail again, thunder and lightning, sleet and snow. but as we have changed our wind direction now, we've cut off the arctic airflow, we are picking up something a little milder now from the south. the snow is becoming much more limited but there is a huge swathe of cloud circulating the area of low pressure set to the south west that approaches at the moment. so there will be more showers through the night or indeed longer spells of rain across the south,
10:58 pm
into wales, into north—west england and northern ireland so here perhaps not quite chilly overnight. largely frost—free but under the starry skies further east and where the cloud breaks anyway, we could see a touch of ground frost so not as chilly as last night. and the reason is as i say, a change in the wind direction. cutting off the arctic airflow and we have picked up something a little milder from the south and so temperatures won't be quite as low by night but a little bit higher by day but unfortunately again we will have cloud across the south west of england, through wales, north—western england and into northern ireland. we also have the remnants of a weather front that's been sitting in the north of scotland today moving into the northern isles. but actually for the bulk of scotland, few showers. central and eastern england, fewer showers than today and really decent weather if you're heading out and about. but there will be some downpours around, certainly so. and again some fantastic clouds with those downpours, hail and thunder and still some sleet and snow on the tops of the hill. so if you are caught in the showers,
10:59 pm
9—10 are expected to be our highs again as they have been today. but further east with fewer showers and longer spells of sunshine, and slightly higher temperatures to start with, we will be seeing temperatures rising and that will continue through the weekend as well with some sunshine, least if not bright spells. can't promise it will be entirely drive because we start to pick up cloud off the north sea. so as it comes in over that chilly north sea, it turns to cloud bringing some rather bleak conditions to scotland, some front on the coast. temperatures will be held down here but england, it looks brighter for western scotland, northern ireland and wales still that low pressure and the showers close and south and west but it it's an improving picture all the time for western areas. more sunshine, slightly higher temperatures, that process continues sunday. this could be a fly in the ointment, a band of showers. quite heavy showers actually working their way westwards through the day. so we will keep an eye on that one for you. there's more on the website.
