tv   The Papers  BBC News  April 25, 2019 11:30pm-12:00am BST

11:30 pm
hello. this is bbc news with rebecca jones. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment — first, the headlines. the foreign office warns against all but essential travel to sri lanka because of the risk of further terrorist attacks tributes are paid for two british teenagers among those who lost their lives from the relatives who survived. they were getting me food from the buffet when the first blast went off. i hope that's not what.. you know, was the fatal blast, because we started running out and i don't know what condition they were, and there
11:31 pm
was another blast. the head of the civil service is to lead a formal inquiry into the leak of details from a national security council meeting about huawei. 31 years after his first run for the white house, the man who was barack obama's vice—president announces a new presidential campaign. knife crime figures for england and wales have risen to record levelsin the past year. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the features writer at the independent, james rampton, and the victims commissioner, baroness helen newlove. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the metro leads with the foreign secretary's warning that british travellers should stay away from sri lanka,
11:32 pm
saying there could be future terror attacks in the country. the independent features knife crime on its front page — it says attacks have reached the highest level since records began. the telegraph's front page says ministers jeremy hunt and gavin williamson have both publicly denied leaking details of the huawei controversy to the press. the guardian says other ministers who attended the meeting of the national security council have been told to say if they leaked details of the meeting. the mail reports latest details on the row between sir mo farah and ethiopian athlete haile gebrselassie. and the times leads with analysis that claims private schools save the taxpayer more than £20 billion a year. quite a variety of front pages.
11:33 pm
helen, this feature is on most of them, the front page of the guardian. ultimatum to ministers in huawei leak investigation and this is the leak that came from the national security council and this is serious. we've become used to lea ks is serious. we've become used to leaks from is serious. we've become used to lea ks from cabinet is serious. we've become used to leaks from cabinet meetings but this is on another level. when i first started, i never understood the dynamics of these leaks but i've learned a lot since i've been in westminster, nine years this year but this is really serious because this is national security level, not something tojoke this is national security level, not something to joke about. it's important documentation. we have got to see that we are open and transparent about this and i think sir michael fallon is quite right, we should have a police enquiry. one level it is to find out the information and if the information is taken to be serious, this is also about leadership. these are frontrunners that we presume are going to be frontrunners for the
11:34 pm
next leadership for the conservative party. this is very serious for them because if we do now this down, this is their career and also a criminal act. i think we've got to nip this in the bud, we got to be open and honest and deal with it quickly. the longer it goes on, people are already fed up with politicians and toxic so we don't want this to develop anymore. i'm sure you would ee, develop anymore. i'm sure you would agree, with this. transparency is vital here and that it's not covered up vital here and that it's not covered up in some way. this is the first time since the national security council was founded in 2010 that this was a leak. cabinet is more leaky than a sieve. you'd be more secure leaky than a sieve. you'd be more secure if you told someone something on the street, but this is a very grave matter. nations are expressing disquiet about it. i know the us and australia have had a lot of concerns
11:35 pm
about this. and it's going to damage out about this. and it's going to damage our international standing. it's also a proxy war for the tory leadership and it's quite telling that gavin williamson and jeremy hunt categorically denied it. some might say it is canny politics because it's forcing people to deny. it may squeeze someone out and expose them as having leak this so it's always, i'm afraid the leadership of the tory party has become the running story that's almost buying into everything to do with the government. what does categorically denied actually mean? you deny, you deny. what is categorically. are you guilty or not guilty? it's very emphatic. this
11:36 pm
ultimatum in the guardian is from sirmark ultimatum in the guardian is from sir mark sedwill. in this story in the i, uk's closest allies have raised concerns with intelligence officials. to pick up on what helen mentioned, so michael fallon has said blue should be looking at politicians phones. somebody has linked this to the telegraph and hats off to the telegraph, it's a great story and obviously by the journalistic code, they are not going to reveal who the sources but the police can do that. they can look at all the politicians phones, unless they are cleverly deleting it, i don't know if that's technologically possible. there may be evidence on one person 's phone of somebody contacting the telegraph to leak these details on that person, if it is discovered, will be
11:37 pm
in serious trouble in the leadership will be over, if not their career. the whole of it is not nice. you're there, people trust you, you're at there, people trust you, you're at the top of the table. and if it's anything like number 10, you have to hand in your phones, the ipads. somebody has leaked it has gone out to do an action. it's notjust like you've had a phone—in the room. like james said, the intelligence overseas, it's the relationship. being able to do this non— probing. the web and everything else. this is su btext the web and everything else. this is subtext now because it's gone to another level and our politicians have leaked this. this is not meant as an insult to you because ijust despair of the tory party. it seems like they could be a nuclear war. it
11:38 pm
would still be a tory leadership campaign going on. it seems to be a consta nt campaign going on. it seems to be a constant story that's humming underneath the main story. there is always a subtext and it's about the leadership and i'm so tired of it. they should be getting to grips with the crisis this country is in, dealing with exit, not arrogantly promoting themselves as the person to say it when there is a national crisis that needs to be dealt with. this is a whistleblower that's gone out. we will never know what this messages. the police need to go in and get the phones, disclose this, we can get that and it depends, they might bea we can get that and it depends, they might be a problem with apple. there are different layers but this is absolutely, it's ta ken are different layers but this is absolutely, it's taken away from the chinese delegation of what going to do, taking everything away. there's been a criminal act year and we have to get this result quickly. let's
11:39 pm
move on to the metro. new bomb alert for sri lanka. as of this country and its people haven't suffered enough that this is in the way of the bombings on easter sunday. jeremy hunt has warned britons to stay away as further attacks are very likely. hearing the news, this was a christian celebration weekend and it was sad to find all these people lost their lives, families ripped apart, parents with no children now. we don't get this u nless children now. we don't get this unless there is intelligence to say. we are not told there is enough intelligence. it really is a warning to stay away but with got to think
11:40 pm
of the people who live there. also, people want to go in, to churches, when they feel safe. they've cancelled all catholic services this weekend. it must come from very good sources because there is an economic side to this. i'm sure sri lanka 's been logged —— lobbying other countries do not ban that people from travelling because it has a massive economic impact on this country. its tourism industry as far and away its most important and if there are eight thousand brits there at the moment, but there won't be many more going. the economy is going to be devastated. sadly, people who live in sri lanka, they don't the option not to go there and it must be terrifying, this story that there are terrorists running
11:41 pm
around. they will be deeply disturbed by the fact that people are saying it's the worst security failure since 9/11 because the government had clear warnings and they weren't communicated. that adds insult to injury. the poor families have lost people have bought, could be prevented ? have lost people have bought, could be prevented? it's unthinkable. when they went raiding to look for other terrorists, a police officer got shot. people who went about their lives and wanted to enjoy the country and were feeding into these people with such evil minds to do this to another human being. closing down the tourist industry is one of the things that terrorists are aiming to do so sadly, they are achieving their aims, like in tunisia. let's move on to the independent. seriously grim tonight. extraordinary headline. a knife attack in britain every 12 minutes. helen, i know you're a tonight crime summit which was convened. all trying to have a joined up approach
11:42 pm
to try to tackle this issue. did you have any confidence that anybody has got a solution to it? i think we have confidence in what we already knew. what i hope to see from the outcome of that, it's over several days, we went to the one with the prime minister and the secretary of state forjustice on thursday but i wa nt to state forjustice on thursday but i want to see a giant approach that is sustainable. this can't be a win—win u nless sustainable. this can't be a win—win unless it's actually funded and resourced. you can't make every agency be mandatory. i spoke to young people who are terrified, people from school who just go home. we've let them down at that stage. to actually take somebody‘s life or attack them, it just to actually take somebody‘s life or attack them, itjust needs resourcing, as well as getting the
11:43 pm
evidence so i hope more will come out of this but in the meantime, we do have to make sustainable programmes, not just a do have to make sustainable programmes, notjust a quick win for these children were losing their lives. you see all the knives and everything. you got to break them down to protect them if they do get stabbed, learning first—aid, it's really important and it's been taken away. first—aid is absolutely an approach to help somebody using a gang who has a knife wound and there's lots of medical people who will do that. we need tojoin up now. and the serious research, we need to do it at local level to help people to say we are trying to help them. there also seems to be huge problem with lack of resources for police, ian hopkins, just this week is admitted that at least four untenable crimes are not being fully investigated because of a lack of
11:44 pm
resources . investigated because of a lack of resources. if you're a victim of crime ina resources. if you're a victim of crime in a serious of crime, it's even worse if you fallen victim tonight crime that devastating. there is a circularity. with the perpetrators thing, we know these crimes are not going to be investigated. they are running feral. we have decent people who are scared stiff to run outside but if you look at what we do on the landscape, we label things. let's ta ke landscape, we label things. let's take all that away and look at the route cause, let's get in there and going to schools. it's notjust one ingredient that is causing that. you can't solve this. how do we stop the future generations from thinking
11:45 pm
this is normal? people who take them to protect them actually lose their lives. in the telegraph, tory hopefuls assaulted on the campaign. in the local elections. i cannot believe this. it is a very shocking. u nfortu nately we have this. it is a very shocking. unfortunately we have used that word too much. this woman was campaigning ina too much. this woman was campaigning in a nature reserve and a man came from behind and heater. swore at her and blaming the toxic culture developed on social media is what she is blaming. female mps getting abused. a number of them, all these
11:46 pm
are very brave women making a stand against that but there is an absolute tsunami of abuse. the most terrible threats that you would never hope to hear in your life and they are being directed at these women every single day and the natural outcome is people think it is then ok to manifest that as physical violence and sadly with pauljo cox it resulted in a murder. —— poor. pauljo cox it resulted in a murder. -- poor. there are some people that can be quite nasty but i tend to block people because at the end of the day they do not understand what you do. it is not part of yourjob. but while we're talking about it,
11:47 pm
what are we to stop it? we keep saying this, i worked well with jason phillips, and it has become the norm but why have we allowed into? we need to flip it back. why have we allowed people to threaten you with death threats, rape, abuse. have we not learnt anything from jo cox? we need to flip with this now and say it is not acceptable, what are you going to do? we have plenty of legislation and we need to tackle it to show we mean business. you cannot do this. we do not need to lose another life. it may also go back to the lack of police resources . back to the lack of police resources. they may not think this is such a massive problem. also? or social media... is such a massive problem. also? orsocial media... i is such a massive problem. also? or social media... i was going to say? over the platforms,
11:48 pm
or social media... i was going to say? overthe platforms, how or social media... i was going to say? over the platforms, how much intervention to stop this happening. we're going straight to christchurch where prince william is going to make a speech. he is at the mosque after those attacks. (n0 audio translation available) good morning. today together in a place of worship, faith. we gather here at al noor mosque home for community and family. on the 15th of march tragedy unfolded here stop a terrorist attempted to so division and hatred ina attempted to so division and hatred in a place that stands for togetherness and selflessness. he thought he could redefine what this place was. i am here to help you
11:49 pm
show the world that he failed. now, when i woke up in london on the morning of the 15th of march, i could not believe the news. an act of unspeakable hate had unfolded in new zealand, a country of peace. and it had unfolded in christchurch, a city that has enjoyed so much more than its fair share of hardship. when it was confirmed that 50 new zealand muslims had been killed, murdered while peacefully worshipping, again, ijust could not believe the news. i have been visiting new zealand since before i could walk, i have stood alongside new zealanders in moments ofjoy and celebration and i have stood alongside new zealanders in this city in moments of a real pain, after loved ones, homes and
11:50 pm
livelihoods had been lost after the 2011 earthquake. and what i have known of new zealanders from the earliest moments of my life is that your people who look out to the world with optimism. you have a famous strength of character. you have a warmhearted interest about cultures, religions and people thousands of miles from your shores. you have knowledge, debate and grapple with your cultural history ina way grapple with your cultural history in a way that has no real parallel in any other nation. so again, i could not believe the news i was hearing on the 15th of march. a country that seem to be bucking global trends of division and anger, looks like maybe it to would fall victim to those intent on promoting fear and distress. i have no doubt that this is what the terrorist at
11:51 pm
hopeful, new zealanders had other plans. the people of al noor mosque an lingwood mosque had other plans. ina an lingwood mosque had other plans. in a moment of acute pain, you stood up in a moment of acute pain, you stood up and you stood together. and in reaction to tragedy, you achieved something remarkable. i have had reasons myself to reflect on grief and sudden pain and loss of life and in my role i have seen that the approach to sorrow in others in moments of tragedy as i have today. what i have realised is that, of course, it can change your outlook, do everforget the course, it can change your outlook, do ever forget the shock, the sadness and the pain, but i do not believe that grief changes who you. grief, if you let it, will reveal who you are. it can reveal depth that you did not know you had stop
11:52 pm
the startling wake of grief can best any bubble of complacency of how you live your life and help you live up to the values you aspire to. this is exactly what happened here in christchurch on the 15th of march. an act of violence were designed to change new zealand and instead, the grief of a nation revealed just how deep your wells of empathy, compassion, warmth and love truly run. you started showing what new zealand really was almost immediately. on the road outside these walls, people pulled their ca rs over these walls, people pulled their cars over and started caring for the big terms, even if they did not know if it was safe to do so. —— victims. your neighbours open the doors to those who were fleeing the violence. the first responders apprehended the killer and immediately woke to save
11:53 pm
lives in the most challenging of circumstances. in the days that followed, thousands of bouquets of flowers brighton the darkest of moments all across the city. your prime minister showed extraordinary leadership, compassion and resolve, providing an example to us all. your words in the days after the attack moved the world. you are a reminder that the victims needed to be remembered both as muslims and new zealanders. you showed yourself to bea man zealanders. you showed yourself to be a man of great wisdom. you could not have been more right when he declared that this country is unbreakable. on a map new zealand
11:54 pm
may look like an isolated land but in the weeks that followed the moral compass of the world was centred here, in christchurch. you showed the way we must respond to hate, with love. you showed that when a particular community is targeted with prejudice and violence, simple a cts with prejudice and violence, simple acts like wearing a headscarf or joining the call to prayer, can reveal those who have reason to be afraid. an attack that tried to a nation only brought us call closer toa nation only brought us call closer to a muslim friends. it showed the true faith of islam as a religion of peace and understanding. i was very moved by the stories of the great distances your friends and families travelled to support you in your time of need. even when your previous connections are not always been frequent. they travelled here
11:55 pm
to support you because you are family and that is what families do. they dropped everything when there is need. people of all faiths and background can learn a great deal from help muslim families affected by the 15th of march attack rallied around their loved ones. the example provided by new zealand will prove to be of enduring value to all nations. what happened here was fuelled by a warped ideology that knows no boundaries. the world is rightly united to fight the extremism which has made sorrowful brethren out of cities like new york, paris, london and manchester and that has taken so many lives in sri lanka in recent days and so to we must unite to fight the brand of extremism that has led to shootings
11:56 pm
in charleston, pittsburgh, pennsylvania, violent attacks in london, west yorkshire and so many deaths in two mosques here in christchurch. extremism in all its forms must be defeated. the message from christchurch and from al noor mosque and lingwood mosque cannot be more clear the ideology of hate will fail to divide us. and just as new zealand has ta ken fail to divide us. and just as new zealand has taken swift action to ban physical tools of violence, we must unite to reform the social technology that allowed hateful propaganda to inspire the murder of innocents. to the people of new zealand and the people of christchurch, to our muslim community and those who rallied to your side, i stand with you in gratitude for what you have taught
11:57 pm
the world. i stand with you in optimism about the future of this great city. i stand with you in grief for those we have lost and with support for those who survived. and i stand with you in firm belief that the forces of love will always prevail over the forces of hate stop (no prevail over the forces of hate stop (n0 audio translation available). studio: we have been watching prince william at the al noor mosque in christchurch, in new zealand, which of course is where 42 people died in the terrorist attacks last march. chris william said he woke up and could not believe the news when he heard it that morning but he praised
11:58 pm
the people of christchurch and said you showed the way we must respond to hate. the duke of cambridge on a two—day visit to new zealand. the prime minister of new zealand jacinda adern that watching his speech. he praised her as well, saying she showed extraordinary leadership out of compassion and resolve and he praised muslims saying they showed the world that is love was a religion of peace and understanding. —— islam was a religion. prince william speaking live at christchurch within the last few moments. let's catch up with all of the weather news now. we have some fairly unsettled and stormy weather in the forecast over the next 2a hours. friday brings a
