10:40 pm
that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are former pensions minister ros altmann and political commentatorjane merrick. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the telegraph says the prime minister is close to agreeing to brexit demands from labour — the paper says theresa may
10:41 pm
is convinced their support is needed in order for a stable majority to back her deal in parliament.the guardian's front page also focuses on labour — but looks at the brexit policy debates going on within the party meanwhile, the i's front page features stories from the victims of the contaminated blood scandal, after the inquiry into what happened opened today. the times leads with venezuela — after military vehicles ran into protestors during an escalation of protests against the current government. on the front page of the mirror, chris packham says he won't give in to anonymous threats over his campaign to protect birds from a planned population control scheme. we are going to start with the tainted blood story that we had been feeling absolutely all day, and rise we had images of some of the people who have spoken an incredibly emotional testimony. harrowing stories of people who are so badly wrong that their life was endangered and yet, the 70s and 80s it was a
10:42 pm
time when people say to you don't tell anyone. they actually didn't tell anyone. they actually didn't tell anyone. they actually didn't tell anyone. even their own family members i think nowadays is less likely to happen, it's quite astonishing that something so serious could have been hushed up and covered up with devastating consequences. helen, governments are both stars & stripes couple here? its failure to act, going back to the 705 and it5 failure to act, going back to the 705 and 805, 5ucce55 it5 failure to act, going back to the 705 and 805, success by 5ucce55ive the 705 and 805, success by successive governments have been related to it has been 5wept under the carpet, but it's a huge government —— at a huge number, 5000 people affected people have died and i think some of the testimony today they were told not to talk about it, it'5 they were told not to talk about it, it's her redne55 they were told not to talk about it, it's her redness and i think also it publicju5tice it's her redness and i think also it public justice 5candal5 it's her redness and i think also it public ju5tice 5candal5 come it's her redness and i think also it publicju5tice 5candal5 come i think people need to feel like they are
10:43 pm
the wheels ofju5tice —— justify turning in their favour. the former pensions minister i was talking about how our cement site, i have spinster kyle this is britain and i'm amazed at happen here. cell and iasi i'm amazed at happen here. cell and i as i say, i'm amazed at happen here. cell and iasisay, i i'm amazed at happen here. cell and i as i say, i don't think it would happen like this today, i think the story would be out there and hopefully people would be warned in time to stop it happening for more people. the problem was this happened and a lot of people were affected. nobody knew about it until so affected. nobody knew about it until so much later. even families, you wa nt so much later. even families, you want a chance you have limited time to live, you want them to be able to at least make the most of time with family if you can't tell them in the suffering is unimaginable. is distressing to listen to, but we are going to the guardian because they have an image from venezuela with
10:44 pm
juan guiado again a story we have been tracking in the last two years, it is still moving and you know, as do you think it's too soon?|j it is still moving and you know, as do you think it's too soon? i don't know, it seems to be a change today, he'5 know, it seems to be a change today, he's got surrounded by people in the military weapon, question is whether or how many military forces are with them, some with the president madera, andl them, some with the president madera, and i mean interesting that the national security adviser saying it's not a coup and recognising the legitimate leader of venezuela, i think either images are powerful at the protesters, holding gas cans and so the protesters, holding gas cans and so on, and other things to get a sense it's going to start at become very volatile over the next few hours. we sought already with the broadcast, we saw one vehicle with protesters. an armoured vehicle ploughing into the protesters
10:45 pm
current president is determined to try and squash this and it's not clear from the stories we are seeing here whether indeed juan guiado has got enough military on his side. in order to actually come out on top, i mean he obviously believes the election was raped and that he is the rightful president and it was taken away from him, he's gone to the airbase and said now is the time. you never know what is the right time. ultimately, maduro has got support but the economy as absolutely collapsing with inflation at 10,000,000%. so it's not accept this country is going to be stable evenif this country is going to be stable even if this time things don't work out. the supporters of madero and countries like russia and cuba and bolivia. where as the us clearly is
10:46 pm
trying to engineer a peaceful transition, which has not gone too well so far. but maybe that will be. do you think i should engineer anything? they need to be careful, yes they are guiding it but it's not only us it's the eu as well in latin america supporting it because of the horrendous situation in venezuela self. actually the candidate is the legitimate leader and should be, he found a puppet of the us he's a genuine venezuelan politician. at these things work in complex ways as we all know especially latin american politics. now we are supposed to be the stable boring country, and yet i... exactly, sea mlessly country, and yet i... exactly, seamlessly moving tojeremy corbyn, and he's facing down the talent spearheaded by his deputy, calling for label to signal a backing for a referendum basically they came out with five to have a day which is
10:47 pm
absolutely completely predicted by everybody in the question is whether the romaine faction who want to settle it within labour well stay behind him. what we are seeing so far this evening as there is really barreling to criticism of this decision and this equivocation. as a huge reaction on twitter with people from the peoples of for example saying 0k from the peoples of for example saying ok now you can't but labour you have to vote for the other parties this evening they were saying we really do hope labour will come to gather and they want to tell the parties to stand aside. so you can get labour as remain party. clearly now, corbin has if you'd like triumphed over the watson faction and corbin has refused to unequivocally call for a referendum on anything before we leave. 0nly you know, if this and if that and if
10:48 pm
the other, then hopefully maybe one day we might call a referendum whereas most labour supporters now wa nt to whereas most labour supporters now want to remain and want a second referendum even if we don't remain. and the hard brexiteers and who may have voted labour in any case would probably vote for the brexit party, so probably vote for the brexit party, soi probably vote for the brexit party, so i don't understand the strategy labour is pursuing here other than corbin and the people around him doing what they want because they don't want brexit. it's partly also rationale is that i want to alienate all of the labour voters in the north midlands particular those who have noted leave so they fudged it from the beginning. have noted leave so they fudged it from the beginninglj have noted leave so they fudged it from the beginning. i think the strategy worked in the 2017 election held ina strategy worked in the 2017 election held in a coalition together and it led them to increase the boat, i think it worked when they were going to formulate the latest policy at the conference last september. they came up with this saying we will
10:49 pm
call for election and i failed you a call for election and i failed you a call for election and i failed you a call for referendum, and i think now we are close to brexit, may be, that we are close to brexit, may be, that we are close to brexit, may be, that we are close to the wire needs to be a bit more. you know something we don't? it needs to be more pragmatic andl don't? it needs to be more pragmatic and i think it's right to say the european elections are effectively a referendum on a brexit anyway, so if labour could sort of corral remain but is together we change it can lead damn, he could send a strong message to the government that there are still lots of people and lots to remain. the labour tory talks are continuing, some suggestions i that they have another week or so before both sides think that's it. there waiting for local elections. the daily telegraph had not had lined up, asa daily telegraph had not had lined up, as a conservative have you heard anything could you know we are hearing these kinds of soundings if you'd like, that actually the prime minister is given up on getting
10:50 pm
support from her own hardliners. and she feels the only way she's going to deliver brexit as if she can get support from labour and there is a feeling that we've got to deliver brexit. but do you think should get in on arrangement? the noises i'm hearing our what's the problem because if you look at the withdrawal agreement, and effectively amounts to being and a customs union at least until 2020 if not 2022. so that's what's already being agreed. after that, if you have a general election all bets are off, the political declaration itself is nonbinding, so if labour were, i hope they don't, but if they we re were, i hope they don't, but if they were too far in the next government, they could make a customs union permanent, if they don't, and i sitting as a solution for the irish
10:51 pm
border which i think is a bit?, but if they were, then a different government, the tory government for example could say, well we don't wa nt to example could say, well we don't want to cuss union thank you very much we do our own trade deal and whatever we choose, but we will have a different approach. so anyway, i think the noises are that we effectively agree to a constant union within that which i'll agreement for the irish backstop. so it's not going to take a huge leap far as to say well, yeah we can agree for that on the moment, labour can then say love the tories are going to deliver what we asked for, all of it goes through parliament. jeremy hunt sasj on the radio if you have a customs arrangement, you'll lose my tories and labour at that you gained and is labour really going to want to facilitate and is labour really going to want to facilitate advantaging the tory brexit? it's hard to sell it, he
10:52 pm
says it's a job for us brexit he keeps on framing it that way it would be about framing the size is how they can see who winds a spin working trees and they say actually this is dishonest which i'll agreement and that the customs union that she could spend and say it's not one at all, and i think it's you know everyone is waiting for the local elections on thursday, because they've got to be party political, they're trying to keep. viable. that's a truth that they, and the outcome is... quite that both sides need to be seen to be doing something. what we know as both parties want brexit. like the leaders want but want it, even though the country spit but the two leaders, actually do want to deliver brexit, it's a question of whether they canjoin brexit, it's a question of whether they can join together and keep enough people and their party on—site for that, when it comes to vote because so far, yet every time
10:53 pm
a tried to about, nothing actually ever happens because there's no majority in parliament for anything. that is look at something that might be solved which is the front page of the times, child obesity in reverse, it's about needs is saying the preschool children have become thinner while smashing the obesity 93p- thinner while smashing the obesity gap. is a very positive story. there was a sort of every single link is a story about serrated health of the nation and children getting more overweight and it's incredibly depressing because it feels like it's something that's in decline. when this is a reverse, it's being astonishing and also the fact that it's aimed at the children, sort of doesn't go, we don't get all the details. but the parenting classes, hundreds of families, encouraging children to eat my pot —— healthy and exercise more it's had an effect
10:54 pm
and exercise more it's had an effect and this is interesting because we are so and this is interesting because we are so much about this are a so—called nanny state and the papers regular and interfering in lives, but this shows that don't call it that, college education it can help and there is a black—and—white brief here. a ghost from 11.5% and and there is a black—and—white brief here. a ghost from 11.596 and it's inclined. the best results were for the poorest fifth of households. inclined. the best results were for the poorest fifth of householdslj the poorest fifth of households.” wonder what they were doing. basically you help the parents understand the linkages between exercise and diet and outcomes. and this is i think, an ideal example of what you want to see from successful social policy. where this is a targeted trial. that is that money going into it like a knife? it's only one area are so going into it like a knife? it's only one area are so far and the roll—out across the country. but from the point of view of cost to nhs, but in the near and long—term,
10:55 pm
clearly there is a major public interest. in achieving the kind of results that the study appears to achieved obviously it's one study and you need to carry it on an extended more broadly, but i do think that given the context of the country as a whole wherever else outside the study that looks i said obesity rates are either stable or rising, whereas here, they were following. the evidence seems to be quite powerful that it's definitely worth pursuing. i think i would like to know about who lena classes because it has to be the god not quite make it succeeded which is intriguing maybe i need a seminar less than from my self. not my children they are fine. that's it for the papers this hour. we will be back at half past eleven 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 —
10:56 pm
7 days a week at bbc dot co uk forward slash papers — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you baroness altmann and political commentatorjane merrick, who will be back with us at 11:30. good evening. the weather was a tale of two hats today, it was pretty warm again, in that strong april sunshine whilst further west, the swathe of cloud linked with low pressure has been meandering its way eastwards. it's been quite wet for a time in northern ireland, but the rain's clearing now and pushing into mainland uk and that process will continue throughout the rest of the evening and overnight, so it does limit the fall in temperatures to be mild for most. but under the clear skies again in eastern england, in particular, it under the clear skies again in eastern england, in particular, it'll be quite chilly as we head towards dawn and as we've seen recently in the morning hours,
10:57 pm
we could have some fog around in central and eastern areas taking a while to clear away the land tomorrow looks a little cloudy on the hall at my shower is around because the weather front is making steady progress eastwards, but the sunshine will punch through the clouds and get more energy to that cloud and that moisture so some big showers and thunderstorms developing this afternoon but not for all, there will be a lively downpour, gusty winds and looks drier with fewer showers around northern ireland but still some around in northern england southern and central england as his eyes well. as we follow that progress of that whether finder showers through wednesday to thursday, it eases away for a time, but then we have a line of cloud approaching from the north and that's going to bring subtle change it later thursday, but had it, once again push that strong may sunshine into the equation and we had big showers and lively downpour with hail and thunder. and it really starts to feel like a different season by the end of thursday
10:58 pm
to friday, watching the weather from here, introducing arctic air flow across the uk. so friday, and the showers and the north could well be a wintry day as you can see, showers mostly over the hills, wintry showers but it feels colderfor all of us, temperatures barely making double figures from many parts of northern england and scotland adding the effect of strong northern win, it fell significantly colder, so it well and i think feel as if we step back into its winter. therefore friday night will be called with widespread frost come saturday morning in fact sunday morning as well but otherwise we will of the bank holiday weekend cut off the northern plus other things warm up by monday.
