11:30 pm
hello, this is bbc news with martine croxall. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow fresher, things get a bit cooler and fresher, just 8—9d around the east coast, a morning's papers in a moment. first, the headlines. bit milder, 13 degrees or so to the theresa may has insisted she had south—west. as we head through the to reach out to labour in a bid to deliver brexit or risk letting it rest of this week it's turning "slip through our fingers". in libya, fighting between army colder but drier too. rebels and pro—government forces threatens the capital tripoli. the un calls for a truce. rules for the internet age: the government unveils plans to combat harmful online content. labour has defended its handling of complaints about anti—semitism, after it was reported the party failed to take disciplinary action in hundreds of cases. a british woman has been arrested in dubai for a facebook post she made, calling her ex—husband an "idiot" and his new wife a "horse". hello, and welcome to our look ahead
11:31 pm
at what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with us, tony grew and caroline frost. who doesn't have a huge amount of sympathy. the front pages... we don't have the on auto cue, what will come up with mike there we go, the guardian. let's have a look, keep scrolling, please. i don't think we will get to it. there it is! oh ye of little faith. the guardian features a picture of cambridge rower james cracknell who, at a6, today became the oldest ever winner of the boat race. but the paper leads on brexit with reports of more cabinet pressure on theresa may to avoid a long brexit delay. "sofa...so bad" says the metro, which also carries a picture of mrs may's sitting room address in which the paper says she admits her brexit strategy has failed. she said she hoped to compromise
11:32 pm
with labour on brexit, or risk losing the deal altogether. the i follows suit and says that tory eurosceptics are now urging borisjohnson and amber rudd to unite for a tilt at the party leadership. that's according to the times. different lead story for the telegraph, which splashes on a pledge for britain public ministers to have the toughest internet laws to have the toughest internet laws to protect children online. the daily sanctuary in the uk after their contribution to british operations in afghanistan. the daily mirror says campaigners are claiming google should have paid an extra £1.5b illion in uk corporation tax last year. and the sun leads on news of an apology from jack shepherd to the family of charlotte brown, who died after his speedboat overturned in the river thames
11:33 pm
during theirfirst date. let's begin with the telegraph, and auk let's begin with the telegraph, and a uk internet laws will be the toughest in the world, this is a proposal on white paper that's been talked about for such a long time. you wonder, how do you implement this and will there be accusations of censorship? we've already seen on social media since we talked about an hourago, social media since we talked about an hour ago, people are saying this is starting to remind them of china, the state clamping down on freedom of speech and expression will stop we've heard for years the likes of facebook, twitter, snapchat, all portraying themselves as platforms, just technical providers of space so we can express ourselves. and we've a lwa ys we can express ourselves. and we've always said that the time has come that they are publishers, and with that they are publishers, and with that comes refunds ability. for yea rs that comes refunds ability. for years they've tried self—regulation but it hasn't happened. he's eventually turned up to congress,
11:34 pm
and even mark zuckerberg is saying it is up to the government to win the baton. what they're saying in the baton. what they're saying in the uk is they are posting that they will have the toughest laws in the uk in the world if this white paper turns into something concrete. this is the culture secretary basically throwing down the first of what will probably be many gauntlets in terms of policing, whatever that looks like. you wonder how that can be done if the social media companies have found it so difficult, or is it just a lack of will on their part?” think the government has been relu cta nt think the government has been re lu cta nt — think the government has been reluctant — strange that they been relu cta nt reluctant — strange that they been reluctant to write to michael legislate in any way when it comes to internet companies. this is a white paper, which means the government, the culture secretary will have the power to find companies and block access to uk users. it is not clear to me
11:35 pm
technically how robust this legislation will be, but it is good to see the government finally talking about actually moving beyond just finding companies, and about how little tax they pay, but prosecuting directors is a big step in terms of proper regulation of the internet. as i say, it depends on social media is cooperating, and how serious the government is about it, and how voracious they will be in the new laws they create. it comes down to something as simple as not being meant to have an account with some of the social media platforms 01’ some of the social media platforms or companies until you're 13. and children do, because even just determining whether you're actually old enough, you just take a box? determining whether you're actually old enough, youjust take a box? my godson helps his mother set up the settings on his ipad so he cannot access certain parts of the internet. she has to ask him for help. this tells a story, we are
11:36 pm
chasing our tails, it will always be bugs bunny and the road runner. there will always be someone who is more technically adept than the people trying to please it. we've seen this with hackers, so as tony says, it comes down to just how they intend to enforce it. i always think of it is like a swimming pool when you have a rope that is trying to police the water underneath. an effective ipm get you around most things. let's look at the guardian. how likely do you think it is that we will end up with this long brexit delay was mac as donald tusk has proposed? the only question is to what extent the labour party will co—operate and to what extent the government will compromise. those are the two things that, as we talk about tonight, still unclear. but for clarity, the uk is going to the european council on wednesday. if
11:37 pm
they don't have a solution or at least have something that the house of commons has agreed on, then the eu options are crushing out on friday or we give you an extension. theresa may is not in a position right now to demand, only to ask. and she will be bound by whatever is they ask of her on wednesday. the daily telegraph looks at tory mps rallying to stop mae's customs union surrender, borisjohnson rallying to stop mae's customs union surrender, boris johnson claiming this will happen. the customs union possibly being born out if labour and the government's conversation goes anywhere? huge if. we've seen borisjohnson ducking goes anywhere? huge if. we've seen boris johnson ducking and goes anywhere? huge if. we've seen borisjohnson ducking and diving around the commons voting last week, he eventually did agree to vote for theresa may's deal, reluctantly. we've heard this phrase being said through gritted teeth by many mps. the spartans are so desperate to
11:38 pm
kick the ball at least across the line and work out everything later, but some clearly, like boris johnson, now say that they see it as a surrender. which i'm sure if you are theresa may, you just think whatever, just get to the end of the week before we go into this long extension. the patients among some of the members of the eu 27 is running thin? emmanuelle macron has been saying we are running out of time and options, they are heading towards no deal. countries like france and the netherlands, ireland have a lot to deal with the uk, they have a lot to deal with the uk, they have close relationships and are more concerned than the others. but the prime minister must be... you're supposed to of left already. now we have and other emergency summit because uk cannot find a problem to the problem uk created. i'm not surprised eu leaders are feeling aggrieved that the uk has still not left or come to any agreement about
11:39 pm
the way forward for the uk, and is i'iow the way forward for the uk, and is now coming back and asking for a further extension, which is why i feel it is most likely that the eu will say that you may have a year long extension, and whenever you've sorted it out and decided what it is you want, if you will accept the deal or go with no deal, and you can trigger that whenever we get there. looking at the times, a massively controversial story. calls to end transgender experiment on children. over ethics and safety fears. this is medical intervention being offered without sufficient evidence, according to some, about the long—term effects. according to some, about the long-term effects. opposing rights because we can all imagine the pain that goes with being a developing individual who is somehow in the wrong gender. however, some critics feel that the pendulum has swung far too swiftly and without any real
11:40 pm
research into the opposite direction, and now these clinicians at this one in hs clinic are saying they've actually quit because they witnessed presenting children as young as three, now up to two and half thousand children and young people presenting as being in the wrong gender in begin medication. and once you get up to 16, it becomes a permanent reversal of gender. this is an ethical minefield for nhs clinics and their staff who have the duty of care both for people who will be in a lifelong wrong gender they want to be, and all the pain to get to that, versus what they are describing. so this pendulum will continue to swing, and it becomes very emotional. it is a hot potato. it is, looking at social media, you can see the ferocity of the argument between those who hold
11:41 pm
different views of. we are talking about adults, but the care of children here. we are talking about a psychological and a condition in which some doctors advocate both chemical intervention and surgery. and obviously you feel that perhaps is not ethically the best way to proceed. and it is all taking place in this cauldron of people slinging accusations at each other, calling each other turfs and all the sort of stuff. my main concern about this whole issue is that kids who are confused about their sexuality may be conflated with those who are confused about their gender. and i'm deeply concerned that gay or lesbian children, or children who may become 95v children, or children who may become gay or lesbian, are being presented to these clinics and may well be accepted as being transgender, when theissue accepted as being transgender, when the issue might be much more psychologically complex than that. that's my main concern, and i think we could do with a lot more shouting —— less shouting and more consideration of issues. google and
11:42 pm
£1.5 billion in unpaid tax funneled through an offshore office to avoid a bigger bill. that's a huge amount of money. let's get the figure right, 60,000 nhs nurses, that's what that would fund. in a time of austerity cuts to services, education and nursing, that's a massive psalm. we know google has deep pockets, according to the daily mirror, this is one of the explanations as to how they stay so deep. they came to a deal with hmrc and paid back some unpaid tax a couple of years ago. in the mirror are now saying there is more that has been hovering around and not claimed by this country. it's a loophole, nobody is suggesting they've done something illegal,. its avoidance. we've been talking about this for years, this is another one of those stories. this is another issue that really rise to michael
11:43 pm
riles people, that google get away with paying £21 million, compared to what it earns, but ordinary taxpayers don't get the sweet part deals word consideration by the treasury. this is something that is really a live political issue, and labour are rightly making weather of it. of course they are. with promises of what they redo if they we re promises of what they redo if they were in power? absolutely. labour plans to take control, but unless it isa plans to take control, but unless it is a strong is that, this sort of thing proved to be a big issue for them and we get to an election? that's a lot of money to the rest of us, but is £1.5 billion even that much money to google? their only interest is profit. what they make is concerning only what they earn secular their stock market is £45 billion. let's look at the guardian,
11:44 pm
finally. he becomes the oldest boat race winner. he won with cambridge, he's studying a masters degree. an extraordinary achievement for anyone, but particularly forjoe correctional who had that horrific crash in 2010 when he was cycling in america. he's had a terrible time, he suffered a terrible brain injury. he was cycling across the state and got hit from behind. it took them a huge amount of time to recover, he talked about it and made
