tv The Papers BBC News April 8, 2019 10:40pm-11:01pm BST
this is bbc news. i'm clive myrie. 2009, it was the headlines at 11: country in the group in 2009, it was a special feeling, and for me, internet sites carrying harmful london and the hague world cup that content like images of child abuse we had were both really special. and terrorist propaganda, could be blocked orfined, under new government rules. they were home tournaments for me. the father of 1a—year—old molly russell, who took her own life what about london 2012, just missing after viewing harmful images online, out on the bronze? is that a regret? says the proposals are a step in the right direction. we are proud of what we did achieve, the excitement that we built with hockey around the country around if there's a comfort, that time. there will always be a it is in that hearing molly's story might have prevented other such tragedies. feeling of, could we have got that medal at the end? but regret is the wrong word. what's next for you? i'll still be involved in hockey, i'll still be involved in hockey, the eu gives us global trade! i'll be playing hockey next year, —— who will have the final say? cross—party brexit talks resume, withjeremy corbyn saying there's no sign of compromise from theresa playing club hockey, so i haven't fully retired and i'll be going into may... coaching work and explore what that looks like and where my future lies beyond the game but i'd love to stay in the sport, it's what i've done my whole life and i feel like i
in the sport, it's what i've done my whole life and ifeel like i got in the sport, it's what i've done my whole life and i feel like i got a lot to give back to it still. that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers. hello and welcome to our look at what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. a mixed bag of lead stories on the front pages. which stories on the front pages. which stories are the dodgy ones made with
coconut? definitely not the telegraph. it reports that theresa may is facing demands from her own mp to resign immediately after senior tory backbenchers told her she is now the problem. the financial times says the prime minister has infuriated conservative eurosceptics after paving the way for britain to take part in next month's european parliamentary elections. the guardian looks ahead to theresa may's visit to brussels where she will be expected to ask france and germany to sanction another extension to brexit much to the reported ire of tony brexiteers. same story on the front of the independent online which there is a brexit delay is likely to come with strict conditions to ensure the uk does not wilfully disrupt you business as some hardly brexiteers have recommended. the i goes with
divorce laws, scrapping the requirement for one partner to find fault with the other. divorce on demand, declares the daily mail which clears the shake—up is to remove the bitterness of marital break—ups. police are probing five men who are suspected of committing atrocities during the rwandan genocide. the daily express slams with council fat cats that town hall employees are being given salaries of more than £100,000 a year. the prime minister has been told she is the problem. she invited a few grandees of the party including mr brady of the 1922 committee to number 10 downing street and their message was pretty stark. the message was pretty stark. the message was pretty stark. the message was that people are turning against you, this comes off the back ofa against you, this comes off the back of a lot of discussion around tory
party funding, how that is shaping up, how they would manage another election and they have mark francois who is a hard brexiteer saying we cannot continue like this anymore, the customs union row was going on and becoming tense because they are not happy aboutjeremy corbyn involved with discussions with theresa may as they try to flesh out a compromise and per theresa may has to go back to brussels —— poor theresa may has to go back to us for more time. she has to ask for the 30th of june as more time. she has to ask for the 30th ofjune as a deadline probably, they will say nine or 12 months because they need a flexible extension because it will take longer than she wants to believe to resolve the issue. do you think there is any self awareness among some of those who actually went to theresa may and said not voting for her deal might be the problem?” wonder how she is sleeping every
night. if she gets to sleep at all with the help of those tranquilizers, does she wake up thinking of jean—claude juncker first and theirjacob rees—mogg or mark francois? nightmare after nightmare after nightmare! in the second paragraph, theresa may sat in stony silence and refused to discuss her future as the mps made clear she was causing the party damage. 0n her future as the mps made clear she was causing the party damage. on a personal level, you wonder how she is coping with this. i suppose it must be difficult but at the same time but at the same time, she could see two backbenchers, i want to get the deal through, i'll go to a party that will back me. we have to
remember she survived a vote of no confidence. there is not a great deal they can do to get rid of theresa may right now actually in reality. it's difficult for them to do that. they try to do that but now they have to wait a year. and it will be difficult to move on from there. theresa may is in a position where she can reach out to labour. it's a shame it has come so late in the day. there is a logic of her position which is in the referendum, tories and labour people voted on the same side and on the other side as well and however extraordinary and we have seen some extraordinary things and some of our lifetimes, andl things and some of our lifetimes, and i never thought i would see anything like this happening but i think we will get on to the fact it may well be one of the things that may well be one of the things that may come out of all this mess will
bea may come out of all this mess will be a radical change to the political system. going back to the financial times, public opinion on britain's governance systems so it's notjust me losing it or mark francois losing it when it comes to how parliament and how our political class is dealing with brexit. it seems to be causing issues for many of us in this country. this is a really, really damning chart. it's the hansard society audit of political engagement and it is showing is that people face in the particle system is at its lowest level since the mps expenses scandal when it absolutely nosedived because people were suffering the ill effects of a put economic situation while heeding that people were building that houses on the public purse. now people are at that level of frustration with parliament and it's not hard to see why, staring down the barrel of meaningful vote number four. people are really, really frustrated and what strikes me as
troubling is the same argument is repeating on a loop when it comes to theresa may's leadership whilst there is no progress on the customs union which is defining brexit and really is going to come down to who is going to blink first on the issue ofa is going to blink first on the issue of a customs union and that is what is going to decide it but until we see some sort of cross party movement on that... the situation should be made clear that this poll says that confidence is worse, significantly worse, than it was at the time of the expenses scandal. those of us who accepted the result of the referendum, whatever be thought of having a referendum in the first place, we are bound to say, people talked about, if we vote out, there will be economic chaos etc, we may not have got there yet. nobody has certainly talked about the political chaos. i don't remembermark the political chaos. i don't
remember mark francois or nigel farage or anybody telling us that the political chaos that would be caused by all this would be anything like it has been. one thing about this whole issue has been the idea that mps should simply follow the result of the referendum which was 52, 48 we leave. i wonder how much discussion there has been about those mps who genuinely believe in their heart of hearts that they can't do that because they believe that there are going to be problems down the track so they are voting with their conscience, they are looking at the figures, and you've got this clash, the parliamentary system basically, and the plebiscite. and if you look at a map of the uk based on brexit voting, it's at odds with the party they might vote for and this feeds into the problem of you cannotjust have a general election defeat the problem —— to solve the problem because these issues cut across
party lines. current party lines, some of us would argue. the problem is we are still upholding a political party system, the conservative party, the labour party, some liberals calling themselves liberal democrats these days, and a few nationalists. that was the system, there were not any greens admittedly in the 1920s, but the rest of them there where and this system this stultifying system has finally hit the rocks. what was the turn out for the av referendum, 2011, 2012, whenever it was? the av was tiny. white might got everyone complaining now about the political society we have there was an opportunity to change it and no one give a monkey's that's correct. well, we shouldn't be whinging because we allowed it to happen.-
the end of the day, you have people on both sides of the argument about brexit who are pure brexiteers, pure remainers, and they will not accept that the result of the referendum was as close and as tight as it was, it wasn't 100% one—sided or 100% the other, so you have to compromise and there are people who are not compromising. is it a fundamental problem, one of leadership from the very beginning, and an understanding that this was not 90, ten, this was not 80, 20, this was 52, a8, and what theresa may is doing now, some are arguing, is what you to been done three years ago? you can't have a way forward that doesn't involve a painful compromise and it is about who's going to blink first. the more we move away who's going to blink first. the more we move away from who's going to blink first. the more we move away from a hard deadline,
the less motivation there is to blink so that's the problem we face, that this could be much, much longer than 12 months and it comes back to the fundamental issues that define the fundamental issues that define the referendum debate which was economic benefits from being a member or outside of the eu and the issue of having an independent immigration policy and until the parties choose to go public with a coherent immigration policy, a coherent immigration policy, a coherent vision for the uk outside of the eu when they pinned their colours to the mask on those painful issues —— pin at their colours to the mass, we are not going to see a resolution to the deadlock. there are studies on the way that will show how much of the referendum campaign, how often they word backstop was mentioned.” campaign, how often they word backstop was mentioned. i don't want to get into that, my head will explode! moving on from is leaving the european union where everyone is to blame potentially, according to the daily mail and some other
newspapers, divorce on demand will lead to no one being to blame when it comes to individuals separating. the first point is a brexit point, it's good to know the government is doing something other than worrying about brexit, so that's the first point about this story. we are told bya numberof point about this story. we are told by a number of papers that divorce lawyers are undergoing a radical overhaul —— divorce law is undergoing the biggest change for generations to limit the blame and bitterness of marital break—ups and the bitterness of marital break—ups that some people experience in this generation, perhaps because in generations past it was so buttoned up generations past it was so buttoned up is quite extraordinary and so upsetting and the three grounds for an at fault divorce, adultery, unreasonable behaviour and desertion will be axed. irretrievable breakdown becomes the sole reason will take just one party to state
the marriage is over. that is radical reform. a number of other papers cover that as well. the guardian, britons throw away eggs a year —— 720 million eggs. is guardian, britons throw away eggs a year —— 720 million eggs. |s this edwina year —— 720 million eggs. is this edwina currie? i'm not blaming her, it's just the effect of that whole episode! i think the issue of food waste is going to become more and more of a problem because people are starting to realise that you can't just have the right diet, it's also how you treat the food that you buy in the first place i think sometimes we in the first place i think sometimes we focus so much on the vegan argument and other issues when actually it's much more about better
resource management. that's just actually it's much more about better resource management. that'sjust a less six conversation, it's not don'tjust stop burning coal, use less energy to start with, using a light switch and taking the bins out aren't the most exciting things in the world! when you were younger, wasn't it an expression, a —— an egg a day keeps the doctor away? my wife andi a day keeps the doctor away? my wife and i argue about this, best before dates. i never know what that means. that's what averages for, man! leave it in there, he'll be fine! —— that's what a fridge is for! we should be taught how to tell whether food is still good. you cannot tell from the outside of an egg whether it is still good to eat. faulty memory can be fixed. this is the
best news of the night!|j memory can be fixed. this is the best news of the night! i need that! the best news for people like you, faulty memory has been restored in all the people by applying electrical stimulation to their brains. is there anything there you can plug into? scientists at boston university discovered two key areas of the brain become out of sync as people get older but can be re—coupled using electrical stimulation. i'm being serious for a minute, this is terribly exciting. it is very, very exciting. we are going to be back at 11:30pm with another look at some of the stories behind the headlines. goodbye.
hello, there, good evening. there is a bit of warmth in the sun at this time of the year. and more parts of the country saw the sunshine out today. and, as a result, it was quite a bit warmer than over the weekend. highest temperatures were across east anglia, where we saw highs of 20 celsius. over the next few days, there will still be some sunshine at times, however, it will be turning colder and very quickly because our air is colder. this is where our air is coming from, scandinavia, moving over the north sea and into the uk over the next few days. it wasn't sunny everywhere, today. it wasn't warm everywhere, either. this was mid wales earlier on, where we were stuck under cloud and we've still got this zone of cloud and showery rain stretching from wales, the south midlands, down towards the south—east of england, drifting its way a little further south overnight. elsewhere, dry, generally clear skies, but a bit of mist and fog around. not too cold, mind you.
lowest temperatures in rural scotland down to two celsius or so. into the morning, there is a one or two showers still flirting with cornwall, this is the main area of wet weather stretching from mid—south wales, oxfordshire, down into sussex. north of that, the odd mist and fog patches shouldn't last long, really, plenty of sunshine from the word go, really. a very different look to the weather for the east coast of scotland and north—east england, where that low cloud will have gone by the morning. a lot of sunshine on offer on tuesday. the rain in the south continues to drift down into southern england and the far south of wales. but remember, our air is colder. so, a significant drop in temperature for many, not least across east anglia of course but also western scotland, where it was 17 degrees earlier today. that rain from those weather fronts gets pushed away into the near continent and this is the dominant feature, a big area of high pressure building down from scandinavia keeping all these weather fronts out into the atlantic and keeping milder air at bay as well. chilly start perhaps, bit of frost perhaps across northern
parts of the uk but good sunny spells and plenty of sunshine on wednesday and it should be dry across southern parts of england and wales. those temperatures are still no better than 12, maybe even 13 degrees on wednesday, below average for this time of year. no sign of that changing through thursday, friday, and into the weekend, typically 11 or 12 celsius. it stays dry thanks to that area of high pressure. chilly wind, though, coming in from off the north sea.
