11:30 pm
from 1130, today's local elections. from 1130, looking at how the papers are trying to. the bank holiday weather for you. hello there. whatever being honest, most of us would like sends like this to head down to the beach. just like we had a year ago because may day was a record breaker. with temperatures peaking at 29c. i suspect it might be breaking some records this mayday but unfortunately for the wrong reasons. we are expecting just a daytime maximum of 13 celsius, some places will be lower than this and weigh down on where we should be for the time of year. it's because we have this arctic maritime air mass moving its way right across the country so the hour coming all the way down from the north, the winds quite a feature as well. that is going to as us about the cold feel, i suspect. growers take note that over the weekend we could see some light frost so that is not great news for the spring plants out there. we start off dry on saturday,
11:31 pm
it won't be long before shutterstock to be driven in along that east coast by a risk north wind. as we go through the idyll of the afternoon because he wins in excess of 40—50 miles an hour in places make it feel quite tough than exposure. some of the showers will be pushed further inland, with slightly lighter wins the further west you are, you are showers, that's where we are likely to see the best of the temperatures. highest values of maybe a0 degrees but that's an exception, generally speaking, it's going to be a cold afternoon for many. as you move out of saturday into sunday, an area of high pressure shift its way further across the uk, quiet and things down just a touch, lighter wins, the exception being the finals of scotla nd exception being the finals of scotland and here we could do some showers from a weather front moving through. there will be quite a lot of cloud around, i suspect on sunday that as i say, fewer showers. temperatures will probably pick at 10-13 temperatures will probably pick at 10— 13 degrees was not as we move
11:32 pm
out of sunday into monday, that model system in the far north of the country, that's going to sink south, very wea k country, that's going to sink south, very weak by them, it could cause some problems for some of us on the mayday. we could see potential for showers across northern england and down into east anglia, hopefully lighten few and far between but worth bearing in mind as we go through monday afternoon, the best of any brighter spells that we should be up into the north, thicker cloud further south. again, those temperatures down where they should be. we're looking at highs of 8— i3 degrees. tuesday, another relatively quiet day, a good deal of dry weather and the forecast and then from wednesday onwards, potential for change and the story. we are likely to see low pressure moving on from the athletic, particularly for england and wales, we could see some wet and windy weather which we have not had for quite some time. that though will move its way into scandinavia, it says unsettled with another low expected to potentially
11:33 pm
move in by the weekend. 0ne another low expected to potentially move in by the weekend. one of the reasons for this is the jet stream. we are was going to stay perhaps to the north of the jet for the start of the week, hence the reason why it's going to stay pretty cool but as you move into the weekend and that secondary low pressure moves m, that secondary low pressure moves in, there is a potentialfor thejet strea m in, there is a potentialfor thejet stream to move right across the uk and may be something just a little bit wilder. a lot of uncertainty in all of that but it does look as though potentially we start of next week dry but some welcome rain for the gardens, called to start and fingers crossed things get that little bit milder. seasonal number this is bbc news. we will look at the papers with 0wen this is bbc news. we will look at the papers with owen and nicola short d but let's ring you up—to—date with the headlines. the same headline dominating today, bad result for both of the main parties in both elections with voters
11:34 pm
sending a clear message to westminster. the conservatives have lost more than 1300 seats and activists are blaming the brexit deadlock and labour also suffered losses at a time when they should be making inroads. jeremy corbyn said he admitted voters who disagreed with his backing of exit have deserted the party. but it was a great night for the liberal democrats, the green party and over 500 independent candidates who all gained seats. —— brexit. more than £100 million has been released by the indian prime minister to help people in the east of the country hit by a huge cyclone, winds reaching speeds of up to 125 miles per hour. caster semenya has said she won't quit athletics after winning herfirst race she won't quit athletics after winning her first race since she won't quit athletics after winning herfirst race since being told to reduce testosterone levels in her body. welcome to our nightly
11:35 pm
lookahead to what the papers are bringing us tomorrow and we are joined by nicola bartlett, political correspondent for the daily mirror and owen bennett, head of politics at city am. most of tomorrow's front pages unsurprisingly lead on the local elections. let's start with the ft, talking about devastating losses for both conservative and labour parties, the telegraph focusing on the conservatives and headlines the tories have suffered the worst loss since 1995. the guardian differs a little with referring to the conservative election loss is the worst in 2a yea rs. election loss is the worst in 2a years. for the times, the story is senior tories are apparently going to tell theresa may that she's got to tell theresa may that she's got to quit as leader. it also finds space in the front page for coverage
11:36 pm
of the investigation finding tens of thousands of british parents joining an on line anti— vaccination group. the tabloids, this is the mirror reporting that the portuguese investigators are nearer to cracking the case of madeleine mccann after british authorities to them off about a known paedophile who was in the same resort when the toddler vanished into thousand seven. it's also the main story for the son which quotes a source close to the pa rents which quotes a source close to the parents who said they remain as hopeful as ever. —— the sun. that's how the papers are looking, they are all in now. should we start with the daily mail? nicola, when they ask this kind of question in the headline and it's used quite widely, so now will they listen? that headline can mean different things. definitely and i think this is a lwa ys definitely and i think this is always the issue with any kind of election, particularly local
11:37 pm
elections were not everywhere in the country went to the polls yesterday, but every party stood in every seat. the question is, now will they listen? we think for the daily mail, that means the mp5, especially tory mps who have so far refused to vote for theresa may's deal because the daily mail backs that deal and never you have stopped brexit from happening on time. they are interpreting the absolute kicking that the tories got at the polls is kick back for the fact that brexit did not happen on march the 29th. kick back for the fact that brexit did not happen on march the 29thm also might mean, can we have a referendum? can we have a hard brexit? people interpreting the fact that the beneficiaries from moving away from the two main parties were the greens, the lid terms who back a second referendum, independence, actual independent people, there is
11:38 pm
this movement, it's been interpreted, for remain backing parties and that means the country is moving towards remain. it wasn't a pure brexit option on the ballot paper. you are discounting. in the form of the brexit party and they will be on the ballot paper in the european elections so what we could see is the brexit party getting lots of votes in the remain vote being more splits. this party they set up has been in gestation for quite awhile. they got together 500, 600 candidates. they could have stood in some key areas. people were saying, if there was a centrist party, i would have voted for it. they could have stood in theresa may or michael gove was my constituency. do you
11:39 pm
think there wasn't that kind of party around, a lot of people phoning into radio shows, do you think they went green or independent because they want to vote central? interesting thing would be to see the vote on the lib dem vote in the european elections. you have this new centrist party which is pro remain, would that affect the lib dem vote ? remain, would that affect the lib dem vote? will they happen to be the ballot paper that people could register a protest vote. this was a huge missed opportunity for the independent group. some surprise wins for the lid terms. even the lid terms were surprised. they have done really well in quite different areas. they've done well in chelmsford, for example. a leave loading area. they've also done well
11:40 pm
in north east somerset, jacob rees—mogg backyard, he has a lib dem counsellor. they gone back to being a protest vote. they no longer associated with coalition as they once were and people are registering an attack on the two main parties in that way. traditionally, maybe not on brexit but traditionally, the lib dems to say different things to different people in different areas. how cynical of you, nicola. only lib dems can win here. they often co-opt local campaigns. this wasn't an election about local issues. it probably was. look at the rise of the independent candidates and people were maybe voting. a lot of
11:41 pm
these resident associations. they resent a huge challenge that to the tories. you might never want to vote labour or green button independent possibly used to be a tory at one point and is now disgruntled. people obviously do care about brexit but they also care about whether their things are being emptied or the houses are being built. those issues also dominate. so now will they listen, this headline on the daily mailfront page, listen, this headline on the daily mail front page, above a listen, this headline on the daily mailfront page, above a photo listen, this headline on the daily mail front page, above a photo of harry and meghan. so the conservatives worst loss in 2a yea rs, conservatives worst loss in 2a years, since 1995, depending on what paper you read. is that true? it's not the worst but the worst since... they have the 2a years. the
11:42 pm
telegraph have, since 1995, and i think they lost 2000 counsellors and that was seen as the kind of surge of tony blair and paving the way for labour to take power in 1997. the cool britannia period. in 1995, 0asis' some might say went to number one and it was seen as this big resurgent mood in the country, getting behind this new political project and i don't get the sense that there is that at the moment. talking about protests, aren't we. the labour vote is quite, it's quite an interesting vote they've lost counsellors in wirral. but they
11:43 pm
picked up some in the south. there isa picked up some in the south. there is a definite different picture happening within our northern so—called heartlands struggling sometimes to convince voters. whether that is exit, sunderland where they also took a hit. the labour leader there blames the brexit position. it also other issues. not just brexit position. it also other issues. notjust exit, it's jeremy corbyn's leadership. it seems this is something that is not really talked about but on the 2017 general election, labour was able to say, vote for me because jeremy corbyn won't be in a stronger position. they can't make that claim now and i feel perhaps that is something. while you are seeing a lot of working—class areas which might be pro—european. maybe they just working—class areas which might be pro—european. maybe theyjust don't like jeremy corbyn and see him as a middle—class representatives and he doesn't represent the working class.
11:44 pm
you are over complicating it. look at the ballot papers on the front page of the daily telegraph. tories suffer worst loss since 1995. a picture there of vicki ford, the tory mp for chelmsford who cried when she was interviewed by a reporter. just really couldn't consult herself. —— vicky ford. you can see it quite clearly. behind the photograph of her crying other ballot papers and people have left a very clear message on the ballot papers. brexit party, traitors, traitors, leave the eu, exit, brexit, people have made a statement on their ballot papers. there were about 30,000 spoiled ballots this time around. it's particularly high. you can spoil a ballot paper by failing to put across correctly in a box or you can do something like this which is trying to send a message. it is difficult to
11:45 pm
interpret that that smattering gives you a sense of people's anger and frustration. faith in politics. but to go to the ballot box and to the polling station, they have notjust stayed at home and put the kettle on. the people, party activists will be there. they will presumably be needing that act to their respective party. this seems to be six or seven ballot papers on the front of the telegraph and as that is representative of one thing, people going down in writing in the name of the policy they want to be given on the policy they want to be given on the ballot papers, all those voters, they would have gone to him because they would have gone to him because the name is brexit and there would have backed that was not but does show that people are calling for a
11:46 pm
second referendum have to look at that as well. they are willing to go out and write the word brexit on the ballot paper, there will be willing to campaign for brexit in a referendum with tenacity and with passion, perhaps even exceeding what happened in 2016. that's why the eu elections will be so interesting. elections that nobody wants. in theory, but because you have brexit party, change uk, they should have come up with... the could have called it, man, because it is going to be... and the independence has on their front to be... and the independence has on theirfront page, or they to be... and the independence has on their front page, or they listen now? with a picture of theresa may and jeremy corbyn, thou sang, will they listen now because they want a second referendum and they were interpreting the scene just like the swing is a backing for the second referendum campaign which is what the independents want to stop give back to the people. tories out of
11:47 pm
power for back to the people. tories out of powerfor a generation. back to the people. tories out of power for a generationlj back to the people. tories out of power for a generation. i don't know that a generation fined by the snp which could be a matter of months, at the actual generation as we understand. thus them saying, a bit of medicine therefore the party and in the telegraph you've got same should be a customs union, jeremy hunter sang as well, all this people that want to be the tory leader next, they are peacock in to see who can emerge aureus “— next, they are peacock in to see who can emerge aureus —— victorious to lead the party. all calls were theresa may and other stories, why does my white or considers compulsory vaccinations, is that a debate about vaccinations for children but as we are merging or
11:48 pm
did it ever go away? i think what's interesting about this story is the number of people that the times has found, almost a0,000 british parents have joined found, almost a0,000 british parents havejoined an found, almost a0,000 british parents have joined an online group calling for children to be left un— immunised against fatal diseases including tat does. this large number of parents, a lot of these things are very five debates online, on facebook, there are things that people feel very strongly about and i think since the concerns over mmr later found to be completely not true, i don't think that issue has gone away, i think it has remained at concentra people. people have said what happened in america with measles as well including government ministers. so they want to protect public, they want to protect children and the compulsory vaccinations, because that actually ever be implement it? strong words,
11:49 pm
people have blood on their hands and don't immunise. we've already seen from the campaign the notion now that with organ donation you have to that with organ donation you have to opt out as opposed to opting in. as a slight shift in the philosophical relationship of how much influence of the state have over your body and i guess that this would be another pa rt of i guess that this would be another part of the argument or stop should the state be able to forcibly, effectively injected with something evenif effectively injected with something even if it is for the greater good? many people would find that uncomfortable even if they were pro vaccine as i'm sure the majority of people are. it follows the proposal floated last week about excluding, keeping children out of school if they haven't had the vaccine against measles because of the fears that it isn't just your measles because of the fears that it isn'tjust your child, it's the other children affected. it's interesting that this is coming, maybe not coming back as a topic but hancock is addressing it because it seems to be a bit of a gap in
11:50 pm
government on this issue. there's not been the kind of public health awareness campaign that you might expect. the government has had a lot on its mind. and just finally, a picture the of a whale. so this is why you went to that story. my sister grill —— my license to krill. this is a story that emerged on social media. it went viral. there are pictures of a beluga whale with what appears to be a spy camera on it, believed to be the work of the russians spying on people. some region fishermen have now found it. it's got on the harness, maiden sue petersburg. but it's english, people
11:51 pm
might think it might be st petersburg and florida not in russia. the best thing was the russians response. they said no, no, this whale isn't as. we do have dolphins at this whale is nothing. but we do have dolphins, they are fantastical stop apparently his defected now. yes, his defected to the west. do it swap a whale for a dolphin. many thanks for that, it's always great to bring a bit of laughter to the newspaper. you can see the front pages of the papers online, all there for you seven days a week, and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it online. have a brilliant bank holiday
11:52 pm
