tv The Papers BBC News April 26, 2019 10:40pm-11:01pm BST
hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me arejoe twyman, director of the opinion pollster deltapol, and claire cohen, women's editor at the telegraph. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the times leads with the news that heathrow won't require some passengers to show their passport from the summer, following a £50 million investment in facial recognition technology. the daily mail front page features a story about labour leaderjeremy corbyn, saying he is being accused of hypocrisy for refusing to attend
a state dinner for donald trump. the mirror says eton college, the independent boarding school that was attended by princes william and harry, has saved millions of pounds through reduced tax rates because it's a registered charity. the front page of the i carries a warning from the nhs for young people to have meningitis jabs, following a rise in cases. and the sun reports that strictly come dancing's katya jones will not be paired with a contestant on this year's show, which comes after she kissed her previous dance partner seann walsh. there are the front pages. let's have a look through, ate slightly deeper chat. let's start off with a delete mail and jeremy corbyn featuring in a few of the papers, including the daily mail. introduce
us, joe. we have a series that jeremy corbyn has snubbed and we start with the queen. he has been accused of staggering hypocrisy according to the daily mail after snubbing the queen's invitation to a state banquet with donald trump. this is not a massive surprise and he is on the side of public opinion in this respect. donald trump is set to make a state visit injune. and around about two to one the public reject that as a good idea and so he is on the side of public opinion. he has said what the delete mail describes as an extraordinary statement but does not annex troy merritt to me is accuse the us president in engaging in racist and misogynist rhetoric and backing climate change denial. as a result of that, he is not going to dinner with him. also not a massive surprise in that he said that if he became premonition or he would not invite the us president to our shore. so not a huge surprise he will not want to attend a state may
quit. also the first time he has been accused of snubbing the queen because he famously did not bow to her at parliament because he famously did not bow to herat parliament in because he famously did not bow to her at parliament in 2017. so same argument coming around again. i think it isjust quite rude, don't you think? you could argue he is be consistent with his views. this is entirely sticking to his beliefs. and he is not the only politician. john burqa has also mentioned as —— john burqa has also mentioned as —— john burke how. but if you don't go to state banquets with donald trump emma do you also go to state banquets when people come here from let's say saudi arabia or china or other countries that perhaps are not as successful with things like human rights as other countries. as successful with things like human rights as other countrieslj as successful with things like human rights as other countries. i think it is very short—sighted of him to publicly say this about the us resident when he wants to be promised or of this country and we look to shore up the special relationship. it is a bit
complicated. the relationship is bigger than anyone president and create a free—trade deal with the us although the public after river that la st although the public after river that last year it was donald trump he said when he was asked aboutjimmy corbin said i do not know the man. so perhaps he will even notice. he also says he does not knowjulian assange that is no guarantee. but that he loved wikileaks. the same story on the front page of the telegraph and this goes into a little more detail on the hypocrisy front. as the piece on the front of the telegraph goes into some of the people that he has met to illustrate the levels of this claim with hypocrisy. so it talks about the muslim leaders and china and also, claire... joe mentioned the racist and misogynistic rhetoric, he is accusing donald trump of which i would say is the most they were hypocrisy of all. i wish you put as
much energy into this announcement of red carpet for donald trump into sorting out anti—semitism in his own party. but it also talks about him meeting with the ira and others. i do not think that is a fair comparison. i don't think the situation involvesjeremy corbyn claiming and saying regularly was about bringing about peace and making the world a better place. whether you agree with that or not, there is clearly a whole different thing meeting rooms and it is of organisations to go into a state banquet with the queen. as you say, you could quite easily make the argument this is actually not hypocrisy, this is consistent beliefs that he is just backing up. the story in the telegraph points out that he happily ended in a state banquet with president xi she jumping in 2015, as did the speaker of the house, who is also refusing to go to this banquet. she would be that surprise thatjimmy carter wa nts to that surprise thatjimmy carter wants to go to dinner with a
communist? really? let's move on. jeremy corbyn still the subject of the front page but different story. different position. talk about the fa ct different position. talk about the fact that when it comes to donald trump to him he is on the side of public opinion wasn't but the story says the labour party is a meltdown over the final say over a referendum not being mentioned in campaign leaflets for the labour party. this cost them all sorts of internal problems within labour. now a lot of the data shows that the public broadly but onlyjust is in favour ofa broadly but onlyjust is in favour of a final say referendum. but crucially, among labour supporters, around three quarters support a final say. and so forjeremy corbyn, if this is true, to reject the idea ofa if this is true, to reject the idea of a final say, that is going against his supporters, which is of course what he has said is in politics and who he says he is in
politics and who he says he is in politics to deliver for. the story says that mps and mvps have written to the governing body and are furious. i think the thing here is a lead to drafts of the campaign leaflets and i suspect that is what he will be using as his get out of jail free card on the story that has not been signed off by cabinet mistress and has been leaked. not the final version, let's go back to the final version, let's go back to the drawing board. there are lots of parties who will jump the drawing board. there are lots of parties who willjump on the opportunity to try and bring over labour supporters for the european elections by saying labour does not support a final say, labour does not really wa nt support a final say, labour does not really want to remain. we are the party of remain in it whichever party of remain in it whichever party it will be, vote for us. it could be damaging for them at the ballot box if as claire says, they go through with it. but also refusing to do alliances with the liberal democrats and the green party this week, so change uk is
dividing the remain vote so they are potentially setting off a people's vote in this election and now we could stay. i think at the moment, each one is hoping they will be able to get votes from the other and time will tell how successful that will be. just talking about polls and european elections and general elections, how much appetite is there for the public with all this? the majority think it is a bad idea the uk elections are going ahead. but now that they are, i expect we could see a situation where effectively the whole thing becomes a proxy vote for the referendum. and at the moment, if the brexit party thatis at the moment, if the brexit party that is having a momentum in their favour. but polls only catch public opinion at the time in that situation could change very quickly and he could change substantially depending on develop it's like this. let's go back to the telegraph and mentioned leaks a little while ago, so mentioned leaks a little while ago, so this time we talk about huawei.
you think they will ever find out who was responsible for this? this is the story the telegraph broke on wednesday and reporting what happened at the national security council meeting tuesday night. we had this heavy— handed council meeting tuesday night. we had this heavy—handed inquiry with deadlines being missed by members of the council to hand in their mobile phones to say who they spoke to after the meeting. i phones to say who they spoke to afterthe meeting. ithink, i phones to say who they spoke to afterthe meeting. ithink, lam not sure i really care. is that too bold? you sure i really care. is that too bold ? you don't sure i really care. is that too bold? you don't care who it was? i'm not sure. we are missing the question in the witch upper who leaked with the question is is huawei exit will partner for britain to bring in 5g technology? and if not, that is what we should have an inquiry about and asking. if not, why is theresa may agreed to in this meeting and going against many of the other countries. that is the
question being missed and all this with that we had this heavy—handed inquiry which limits fresco freedom and ethic they are spent too much time looking at this. they have said this is not about no great crime, nothing major was leaked, more the principle of the official secrets act in this particular case. yes, and this is the intersection where lots of classified information is sent out and that is why they are having this. would anything positive come of it? i struggle to see how. i have asked that and steadfastly refusing, which i take it as a personal insult. but i know it has been mentioned that everyone involved has been asked over and over their phones, their movements that they had to account for movements and what messages from whatsapp are being searched. i cannot imagine someone in this position who leaked it will have left a message on their phone to be discovered. 0h left a message on their phone to be discovered. oh yes, it is a fair
cop, mrsaid discovered. oh yes, it is a fair cop, mr said well. many are saying this is in the national interest. the as we publish it, it is in the national interest and is a big story ina national interest and is a big story in a decision crucial to the uk's future and in the national interest of that is why it was published. let's move onto the times. i learned a lot scanning through this was about the not that we were lucky behind somewhat the us and asia. yes, no need for passports. it is all going to be facial recognition. igo all going to be facial recognition. i go through heathrow a lot. i reckon in my own personal experience and of those automatic barriers for the camera takes a long time to come up the camera takes a long time to come up to the camera takes a long time to come my the camera takes a long time to come up to my height, i reckon they fail about one in four times. and then they also don't work if you have kids or things like that. supposedly how this is going to work is up for debate but it is facial recognition, which means you no longer need a passport and is estimated it will reduce the time spent passing through passport control by a third. iimagine through passport control by a third. i imagine they were sued by a third
for some people, but not for others. and there are serious privacy questions about this because it appears that you will not be able to t appears that you will not be able to opt out of this will be will be something that happens as you go through. these face prints being taken. through. these face prints being ta ken. what through. these face prints being taken. what happens to them? they should be as accurate as figure prints but there have been instances come out and not airports but trials elsewhere, when they have failed and mismatch the wrong face with the wrong person was a [tiess mismatch the wrong face with the wrong person was a mess somebody who every time i go to the airport, my check does not work in those machines to my go to the desk every time. i will be the person matched with a bald man know that about it. but we do not know what is happening. i read somewhere there might be a claimant slated every day. but if they are share with companies or stored somewhere, there are security concerns there and the public need to know where they are being stored and who has access to them. also i think it rise to a halt when you start going through the scanner when you start going through the scanner and you have to load everything in the trays. this is going well. there is a lot more
still to be done for attend a logical solution. if it saves people sometime, then maybe it is worth it but there are serious questions to be asked. they are already doing this, or they? ithink be asked. they are already doing this, or they? i think they are an easyjet trial that and now another trial at gatwick this is coming whether we like it or not. if it is compulsory, fine, but if you have the option of choosing that, would you? will, i will because i will to get through quicker, at least three out of four times. but the same thing with body scanners can be can choose to go through them or choose to go through a pat down so it would not surprise me if something similar was introduced, at least in the first instance here. you can choose, can you? i did not know that. you have not spent enough time keeping in airports as i have setting up security alarm. i would want to know what is happening to a come out at
the airport is one place were actually be expected to be scrutinised and expect our privacy levels to be... i don't mind that. it is in our best interests. let's finish off. on the time summa all of the hat or all about the boy? did you like that? we were just observing there is the front of the times this design featuring in the edinburgh college of arts fashion show and the big picture on the front of the times he could not help but drift over to the right is he that there is an interview with nicholas holcomb of the child star of about a boy and he wore a very similar hat in the film. and was bullied as a result. that is the key point here. i am adjusted in it appears to have what seem to be six oi’ appears to have what seem to be six or eight tasseled bells hanging from it. iam or eight tasseled bells hanging from it. i am wondering, as you can tell, as he can seek i do nothing about fashion. but i am curious as to what the decision—making process is for deciding on six. is to find? but you
just want to go more and eight you think i'm a no, that is overkill. might be balance. for would be symmetry. but six, itjust looks slightly... attend a fashion show on may 23 to find out. perhaps some but if you go to the state banquet and notjeremy if you go to the state banquet and not jeremy corbyn. we have no picture of nicholas holes on the screen but what you think of him all grown up screen but what you think of him all grown up at 29? the fact that he is 29 makes me feel very old ingredient —— indeed. 29 makes me feel very old ingredient -- indeed. anyway, we will be back for another edition after 11:30 p:m.. looking forward to that. that's it for the the papers this hour. joe twyman and claire cohen will be back at 11:30pm for another look at the papers, and don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers. and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, joe and claire.
goodbye. good evening. this time last week, it was all about the sunshine and the warmth that we got to look forward to across easter weekend. well, today, we have seen some sunshine. in fact, it's been a glorious day across the highlands. scotland, you see, from lochnessmonster, but for most of us, the cloud arrived and it brought some rain with it. and it's a sign of what's to come as we move into the weekend. a cooler more unsettled theme for many. in fact, we start off the weekend on a stormy note, with this deep area of low pressure moving in. and on the southern flank of that low, we are going to see gales for many, severe gales on exposed coasts. and those winds are going to be strong enough perhaps to cause some travel disruption, particularly for high—sided vehicles and maybe uproot trees, which are now starting to become in full leaf.
it'll also bring with it some rain across parts of north wales, into the midlands, north of england and for northern ireland through the night as well. fair amount of cloud elsewhere, temperatures holding up at around 6—9 degrees. but it will be the winds that will be the feature first thing in the morning. gusts in excess of 60—70 mph on exposed coasts. the stronger winds will travel their way across central and eastern england through the morning. the rain will tend to sit across north wales, northern england, stretching up into the scottish borders, although fairly showery, and across much of northern ireland. so much to the north and south of that wet weather, there will be brighter brighter spells, but factor in the strength of the winds, the temperatures really struggling, particularly when you compare them to just a week ago. so, highest values ofjust 9—13 degrees. now, that low pressure will move off into the north sea. it's going to allow this little ridge of high pressure to build for the second half of the weekend, so an improving story. and that's good news for marathon runners because perhaps near perfect weather conditions are likely on sunday.
it will be dry, there will be a lot of cloud around, a bit of a breeze but nowhere near as strong as saturday. so, fairamount of cloud for many of us. a weak weather front will bring some rain into northern ireland and maybe western fringes of wales and southwest england as we go through the day. despite the cloud, if we get some brightness, temperatures will respond. there'll be a degree or so higher that saturday, so highest values of 11—15 degrees. and then as we move into next week, it looks as though those weather fronts will sit out to the west. so, chance of further rain into the west. the best of the dry weather to the east.
this is bbc news, i'm lukwesa burak. the headlines at 11. police release new images of the man they believe killed the journalist lyra mckee in northern ireland last week, and ask for help from the public in identifying him. lyra mckee was observing riots in londonderry when she was killed. her death has prompted politicians to step—up their efforts to restore powersharing in northern ireland. she symbolised the new northern ireland and her tragic death cannot be in vain. sri lankan police find large amounts of bomb—making equipment as they hunt those behind the easter sunday attacks, in which more than 250 people lost their lives. retailer debenhams confirms plan to close up to 22 of its stores next year, affecting around 1200 jobs.
