released ahead of a retrial. we're stuck with this weather for a few days as we go the week ahead. some uncertainty about the exact position, it may be slightly different from what we are seeing now, but likely to be sitting through parts of england, across to wales and northern ireland. north of hello and welcome to a at what the that, some sunshine, south of that, papers will be bringing us tomorrow. some sunshine, but temperatures with us, deputy editor of the daily either side staying low. this may express, michael booker, an economist at the daily mirror, susie p9p up boniface, who is adopting a huw either side staying low. this may p9p upa either side staying low. this may pep up a little bit, giving a little edwards pose. i am assessing my more substantial rain in some spots, dominance. it is very huw edwards. a cooling trend even though you get many of tomorrow's front to see some sunshine, so a hint that pages are already in. the mail reports that police officers in some regions have been temperatures are on the way down. told to not hand out that process continues tuesday into wednesday as our weather front moves warnings to cannabis users. the financial times leads on the brexit deadlock — with european leaders' cool reaction across. some uncertainty about the to may's short extension request. the i's front page covers an investigation by the paper which found businesses paid police exact position. most places dry on officers £123 million last year for private security. sunday, variable cloud and sunshine, but temperatures have come down. the the telegraph reports that week will start mild, but there will conservative mps have warned
theresa may that her brexit strategy could harm the party's electoral prospects. bea week will start mild, but there will be a change, with high pressure building across. although we will the times' front page is leading on its investigation which claims some estate agents are bringing in extra commission get to see plenty of dry weather, it by overvaluing properties. the guardian says the labour party claims that theresa may is failing to compromise in will feel chillier. and that does bring a risk of some frost as well, cross—party brexit talks. so bring a risk of some frost as well, so gardeners and growers be aware of that. apart from the weather front, we saw little rain to come through the mirror leads on the news that the weekend. it may turn unsettled eastenders' actressjune brown has failing eyesight. again into next weekend but that is and the sun claims a giant cat still a long way off. of course, we will keep watching out for you. is stalking a cornish village. and it is only april. let us start with brexit. how many times have i said that? the guardian. labour, may is refusing to compromise and brexit talks. hold on, zas downing street, we will compromise if it means we get a cross— party compromise if it means we get a cross—party agreement. —— says downing street. we have a statement
from labour saying we urge the prime minister come forward with genuine changes to a deal. the optimum word is genuine. she has offered what she thinks is a change and labour says thatis thinks is a change and labour says that is not a change. you have changed the font type and put it in italics. what seems to have happened is we have the withdrawal agreement, the deal, for want of a better word, it is the withdrawal agreement. the deal before the deal. it has not been agreed is the deal before the deal. the paperwork. then there is the political declaration which theresa may to wrangle out of brussels to say that we don't ever really wa nt brussels to say that we don't ever really want to use the irish backstop and we will try to have... it is about the future relationship. what has been suggested is that david lidington, the de facto deputy, has written to jeremy corbyn, keir starmer, rather, suggesting that there be a separate memo about the issues that labour has raised. she would not change the deal at all but would allowjeremy
corbyn to compose a separate memo which would end up in the circular file when the other 22 documents are completely redundant when talking about the actual brexit... completely redundant when talking about the actual brexit. .. there is this weird phase where the nation has started to not pay attention to this at the moment. they will say what has been happening for three days? three years. three days where labour has been speaking to the prime minister. well, yes, it is because you want to do reach out to labour. she did. but we don't seem to have achieved anything and it has been a waste of three days. how long does it take for someone to sit in a i’ooiti does it take for someone to sit in a room and say will you do a customs union or not, will you do a second referendum or not, shall we sit down and wrangle it out? you make it sound so easy. they are as a point where people need to start talking in direct terms and they aren't doing that. the french are ready for
us doing that. the french are ready for us to have a no—deal brexit next friday. they seem excited about us doing no deal. and they would! except donald tusk has suggested a flexible extension after 12 months. something suggested a month ago and has now got heated. in all of this, iam has now got heated. in all of this, i am prepared for some flight from brexit ‘s, he seems to be a good egg and all of this, donald tusk —— flak from brexiteers. he does genuinely look as though he is trying to find some form of compromise that might be all right. this flexible extension which could possibly go on for a year but good... you have a huge problem. in the course of that year the huge problem. in the course of that yearthe eu is huge problem. in the course of that year the eu is a legal entity of 27 other nations has to have counsel meetings, it has to have meps making decisions... uk has a voting right on those decisions. what kind of situation is the eu going to be in. if we can't agree brexit the eu is in the same position. which
newspaper do you work for?! in the same position. which newspaper do you work for? !|j in the same position. which newspaper do you work for?! i know the people i work for. you seem very sort of sanguine about it. well, i know what i personally believe. i voted to remain. i know what our readers want. what cognitive dissonance do you go through each day then? i don't! how do you get out of bed, michael? what everyone has forgotten is that vote to leave, the brexit people voted four... people have forgotten the campaigns, the press conferences, the leaflets, they said there would be a four—year cross—party negotiation with experts from business, law, and civil society and they would get a plan before we triggered article 50. theresa may has not respected that vote at any point of her premiership, she has not sought consensus premiership, she has not sought consensus at premiership, she has not sought consensus at any premiership, she has not sought consensus at any point earlier than this. people voted for brexit thinking it would be a calm,
reasonable, sane process. an orderly brexit. the country has not been united. the brexit the man and woman in the street that people voted for is the nodal one. that was not the case. it was not enough at the time. does matt deal on. crosstalk. the times is where we're going next. brexit talks stall as a risk of no deal. difference seemed to enjoy the idea that we will crash out. they are threatening in a way that if you don't sort it out there will be a no deal. —— the french. don't sort it out there will be a no deal. -- the french. it will affect them as well. there is the border between us and them. it affects everybody. people are making these threats but nobody believes it will happen. crosstalk. if you have no deal you will have to have border checks in northern ireland and the ira, the original bomb makers, around making bombs,
they reactivated. you cannot have no deal, we will sort out tomorrow. you have to have it from day one in northern ireland. it is not an a cce pta ble northern ireland. it is not an acceptable solution. you are stirring the pot. leo varadkar has a lot of people on his side in the eu 27. the express, michael, help us here, millions to get a tax base. this was announced last year in the budget are coming into fruition. the new tax year is starting. if you look between the lines. phillip hammond, the chancellor, he is trying to make everything positive. we have had a lot of gloom recently. i thought he said it was the end of austerity. they are not going to/ benefits freeze. they will benefit from the anti—austerity, that has not happened. starting with the smaller, rather than the larger.|j suppose smaller, rather than the larger.” suppose it doesn't make much difference to those struggling with austerity. i don't suppose it does. he has said they have made these measures, the kick in today, hopefully some people will benefit, the national living wage has gone up, the minimum wage has been
increased. it may help some people. on the other side of things, as i was saying, the critics will say at the start of this week everyone's bills went up. everything you have gained is already gone. very helpfully, last year when this was announced, the guardian did a few calculations. and they said that if you earn £50,000 a year the chancellor has handed you an £860 income tax cut, but if you only earned £12,500 per year you will only get 130 inch lbs. so the argument is it is not at all progressive —— 130 inch pounds. it isa progressive —— 130 inch pounds. it is a variant of criticism. it is not fair enough that some people are not getting as much as others. they also have a newspaper that is saying that the chancellor is revealing how
people will benefit from the end of austerity. it is not the end of austerity. it is not the end of austerity. not benefiting as much as people earning more than £50,000 a year. but they are benefiting. they are getting a benefit from it. so thatis are getting a benefit from it. so that is not right. it is very selective reporting, isn't it? on this paper is due to some extent. i'm not criticising the express over others. but it is not the end of austerity. families, strivers, and rafters aren't cashing in. one of the members of the cabinet trying to put yourself out there, philip hammond, he is trying to put some positivity out there. he says it will hopefully supercharge the economy. i am will hopefully supercharge the economy. iam not will hopefully supercharge the economy. i am not sure that is going to happen. it is some positivity. people may have a few more quid in the pocket. that is not a bad thing but it is tax cuts of 2.7 billion. people may feel they have money to spend. everything has gone up. your £130 a year is not going to make much difference. the mirror has gone up much difference. the mirror has gone up as well. laughter.
paper is not cheap. the ft is four quid. it is not a price war! can we look at the i. if you shoot at me i am shooting back! i don't mind. by paper. or otherwise will have nothing to talk about. reveal, blissful home. businesses paid millions of pounds, michael, to hire in police, through the police forces, not directly the police officers themselves. some people will say this is one rule for the ritz, they can hire extra policing for them to keep them nice and safe, these big business is, we will talk about things like film companies, as the comedy supermarket, easyjet have been hiring... —— three. £200,000 to patrol a store in london. why can't theyjust buy a security firm? why
can't they. why is it socially acceptable ? why is can't they. why is it socially acceptable? why is it socially acceptable... acceptable? why is it socially acceptable. . . crosstalk. stop talking across each other please. i am trying to get a word in. that is so funny! they are taking police officers off the street where they should be doing their job street where they should be doing theirjob and having them do the job of private security firms which they should be finding themselves without taking money out of, even staff at a public services. the merseyside police, 130 —— 130 inch £7,000. why do they need the police there? why can't you have other security guards there? people are not that interested in the crowds. foot fault public service might be enough. the telegraph. self—harm content to be bound by law. proposal, could be bound by law. proposal, could be bound by law. proposal, could be bound by law.
lots of stories recently about the dangers of social media, and because the government is under attack in that regard, what can you do? if there must be something done, well we can't do anything, can't regulate the internet, we're not so we are not china, so we're going to issue a white paper that says some nice things so we will get some headlines. it is a consultation, how will it work, that will work, that won't work. but it does come after mark zuckerberg said governments around the world need to regulate social media platforms, doesn't it? i think he says that knowing that they can't. he is cleverer than all of them put together. his job is to i’un of them put together. his job is to run this facebook platform. if he can't do it why is he telling someone can't do it why is he telling someone else to tell him how to do it? this is like effectively
switching off facebook if it overstepped the mark, that won't happen ina overstepped the mark, that won't happen in a million years. no, not ina happen in a million years. no, not in a country like britain. not if they are going to suck your data and use it to sell advertising. could that be it? the advertising? if the regulation is brought in, then facebook can turn around to advertisers or people who make money from it and say, it's not ourfault, we are being told to do this by government. you are relying on governments that generally rio i on a slow and steady process to control what is happening on social media, which is the quickest and most rapid form of communication ever developed. as we have seen with christchurch, facebook a live streaming something and 1.5 million versions of it exist before they can start pulling it down. and there is always the next, nastiest platform that pops up. let's have a look at
the ft, and a picture, the sultan of brunei next to the dorchester, which he owns, and also, he has a bit of a bad stair coming from george clooney. brunei sparks global boycott. this is because of this law that doesn't just outlaw homosexuality but also says it is punishable by stoning. it introduces mediaeval punishments for all kinds of things, having your hands dropped off and such. they have introduced this because they have decided it is the new funky thing for the 21st century, and although people have mocked george clooney for saying, don't stay at the dorchester, you have someone with a massive platform who has raised awareness, and as a result you have businesses
withdrawing support, and other businesses are pulling out of brunei based investments. if it changes anything i will be surprised, but you have to be careful upsetting george clooney. he paid for a satellite to follow around the leader of the south sudanese rebels in order to catch him doing war crimes. to many, he is a bleedingheart liberal, but in this case there are nine hotels who are getting hit by this, and an airline, all of his celebrity mates won't be turning up, and people like the sultan of brunei love handing around with celebrities. it won't affect those of us who can't afford to go to the dorchester, but for richer people i think it will! was wondering how you would express that andi wondering how you would express that and i slightly panicked! there is also the issue of membership of the
commonwealth, the secretary general of the commonwealth has urged brunei to think again, to revoke the law, but that isn't enough for some people. you can't really keep people out without a lot of rigmarole. if somebody wants to be part of the commonwealth and seas that as beneficial, i mean we have garrisons of soldiers based in brunei, we can pull them out. why are we protecting them? he does provide some basis for our guys, but we can do that somewhere else. we should just put him out where he belongs until he feels the british disapproval. in a couple of weeks it will probably all be forgotten about. will it? it could highlight the fact that homosexuality is outlawed in a lot of countries, couldn't it? the
problem is, people like him, he has a solid gold car, he lives in a completely different world. a solid gold car, he lives in a completely different worldm sounds quite gay to me. it is quite flamboyant. he lives in a different world, sometimes things don't touch them, he lives in such an ivory tower that it doesn't really touch them. ivory towers with a golden car. it has a good garage on it! let's finish with the sun. pawldark... hide let's finish with the sun. pawldark. .. hide under your let's finish with the sun. pawldark... hide under your bed! something has been here that shouldn't be, he could be talking about a journalist, a bag of fish and chips... a paw print... this has
changed the human as well. the people are locking their doors. the idea of cougars and mountain lions roaming across the north yorkshire dales, they have never once found them. why is that? big cats will come towards dustbins and things.” hope that harry barrow is braced for an influx of videos. i think you could find yourself inundated, harrow barrow. they are made of stern stuff in harrow barrow.” harrow barrow. they are made of stern stuff in harrow barrow. i hope you could hear them across, the idea that susie can't get a word in
edgewise. that's it for tonight, don't forget you can see the front page of the papers. if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you both. i am going to try to get rid of these two! good evening. liverpool have come through a really tough test of their title winning credentials, recovering from conceding an early goal at southampton to go back to the top of the table and keep the pressure on manchester city. mo salah returned the goalscoring form as liverpool ended up winning 3—1.
in the closest premier league title race for years, liveable's chance to regain the ascendancy, not a time to be flagging orfalling behind early on. southampton with a deserved lead in their battle against relegation. jurgen klopp a picture of frustration, though soon his mood would be lifted by the rise of naby keita, his first goal for the club. liverpool level. after the break they went for broke, naby keita to they went for broke, naby keita to the front again, falling, but was this a fail? the referee says no. liverpool would come again, and now there was no stopping them. of mohamed salah's many contributions for the reds, perhaps this was the most important so far. the result rubberstamped byjordan henderson,

on target, so obviously a little bit disappointed but we have to look forward to the next game. scotland we re forward to the next game. scotland were also in action, taking the lead in theirfriendly were also in action, taking the lead in their friendly against chilly through aaron cuthbert, but it finished 1—or. an impressive seven second half turnaround from castleford tigers saw them win 28—8 ina dramatic castleford tigers saw them win 28—8 in a dramatic night of super league action. castleford had trailed by 16 points at halftime but would back brilliantly in front of their home fans. this improvised try the important one that gave tigers the lead. they scored another to keep the pressure on the top two. we can remain in the bottom for.
