tv The Papers BBC News May 9, 2019 10:40pm-11:00pm BST
this game. chelsea should not have not allow this match and this tie to have reached this situation. and we we re have reached this situation. and we were wondering if this would have been the perfect sendoff for eden hazard. apart from the lovely work he did in the goal to ruben loftus—cheek him he was not as if lunch or as he would've wanted for this game so far. cuskelly often watch the penalty. they are about to begin. thank you very much. follow the action across bbc on it radio five live and also on the penalties at the website. that is it for me and the sports day team, from all of us, good night.
hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are political commentator giles kenningham and polly mackenzie, director of centre—left think tank demos. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. starting with the telegraph, victims of crime may no longer have to pay to telephone the police after the home office announced it will review the charge for 101 calls. on the financial times, china's biggest technology groups have been given the green light to launch digital banks in hong kong, which heralds future challenges in london and new york. the guardian reports on a new row over deportation flights after five people have been murdered injamaica since march last year after the home office deported them to the island.
on the daily mail, prince charles is condemned as "misguided" by a public inquiry over his support for the disgraced bishop peter ball, who is believed to have molested more than 100 schoolboys and young men. and the metro leads with danny baker being fired by the bbc after posting a tweet about the royal baby which led to accusations of racism. the photo there shows prince harry with the baby—grow he was given as he promoted the invictus games in the netherlands. that is for next year. a quick look at the front pages. let's start off with the metro and the story of the day, and that is danny baker. what did you think when this story started developing this morning? seems to me the picture he shared of a chimpanzee dressed up in clothing with a caption that implied that
that was the royal baby is clearly a racist trope with a huge history whereby black people have disgustingly and disgracefully acquainted with chimpanzees or apes. of course, he claims that was not his intention. i don't... there has been two debates today. one is is it racist. for me, that is not negotiable, it is obviously a racist trope, we know that. second is should he have been fired for it? given that, he very swiftly deleted it, apologised... wanted you think about that? what he said was it did not even occur to him that a chimpanzee could be a racist way of describing this mixed—race royal baby because he is not a monster. and you want to believe that in a way but it seems to me to be an indication of what a high level of stupidity to have paid no attention
to just stupidity to have paid no attention tojust any stupidity to have paid no attention to just any discourse about race that has occurred. you don't really believe it but i guess i want to but he reminds me of whenjeremy corbyn tweeted that picture on facebook of bankers play monopoly on the backs of slaves and said he did not occur to him it was anti—semitic. come on, grow up. a qualified apology. he said it was ill—advised and it was on to both what he should've said. it shows the dangers of social media. many people are becoming honest for me across the quickly and also people falling on their swords. danny baker some may say quite controversial has been fired from bbc before when he worked for radio five. can he come back a third time? i would think probably not but i
suspect you will see him pop up somewhere else in the media. he is an intelligent man obviously not paying attention to history and most people would know that he would never do things like that. 0k. let's turn to the express and this is a story that is not as straightforward first look at it because it is cladding but it is not all cladding, dangerous cladding we're talking about here following the terrible grin felt wretched he. this is page six of the express. a rab really here over the fact that government shutting out 200 million to replace cladding, some say actually taxpayers should not be footing the bill but also saying this would not actually stop this kind of atrocity happening again. but they are going to basically front 200 million which is going to go 150 buildings some saying why is it taking this long when it will not the solution. you
can imagine how difficult the last couple of years will have been for those people, those families living in buildings where they know they have dangerous cladding. frightened and some of the accounts that it could be them next. the delay i think has been really unsuitable here but i'm glad there is finally action. it would be nice to imagine that you could find a way for the liability to go back to the people who were responsible for designing and testing this cladding and people who bought it. but in the end, trying to make sure exec in the right person pays will only slow the situation down. it just right person pays will only slow the situation down. itjust cannot wait any more. if there also needs to be lawsuits and fees and charges, then we should do that but actually this is where the state template sort of a row and step in and the state can find it and it sorted out and if they need to and chase developers
and platters and manufacturers and they should do so. but as gile says, they should do so. but as gile says, the challenge is how to be stopped ifa the challenge is how to be stopped if a due the challenge is how to be stopped ifa due a the challenge is how to be stopped if a due a ship from happening in the way, it is notjust in building regulations but also in particular areas work has been raised, the idea of self—regulation which will develop for 30 years now on the edit if you don't have some nice men from government come to check that we trust industry to check their own compliance. i think the whole situation caused us to question that. how do you know that the new kind of cladding that has been tested if only boat checking are those with a vested interest in saying that it works? we spoke to a lady today who is a leaseholder in one of these high—rise flats. as she made the point that the developer has gone out of business. so things are very complicated for the people who are trying to get the cladding replaced. but some companies have
actually taken it and owned it and are replacing the cladding without having to be forced to do it. so, yeah... i think we should congratulate them but like you say, if the developer has gone bus, somebody has to pay and samadhi as to sort this out and so i think it is the kind of thing the taxpayer ought to do. 0k. let's go to the front of the telegraph and something that some people were unaware of. fees for one—to—one police calls may be scrapple some i think many were not aware they're paying for them in the first place. the home-office is undertaking a review of this and vodafone have got out ahead of the curb and says it will scrap charges for one—to—one calls and i think you have them saying they will look at it at the charge generating 3.3 million a year. look at the political optics around this coming from the home office. the minister
is the consider in the next leadership race and he is come up with quite a few eye—catching announcements and you can see with the public are not going to back something like this. in the grander scheme of things him a 3.3 million is not a huge amount. having said that, to some extent, if the mobile phone operators to take responsibility for them, it is a good case of corporate responsibility in action. a drop of the ocean for them from the mid—lots of money, why should they not do this for free? it is interesting because when you had your local police station, theyjust would have had a local call number and you called and that would have come up in your billand called and that would have come up in your bill and the normal way. i don't like it was controversial, about having a single national line makes it feel like it ought to be free, like 999. but i wonderjust in terms of the consistency of the telegraph and their political approach to motivate next eight should be also free to call the hospital to make an appointment or also free to call it gp surgeries or should be said that public services
are importantand should be said that public services are important and therefore... different type of instrument to hear, are they not? you can die from illness. but you might be calling the police to make or register some think to make sure you can make an insurance claim and it will not be investigated and is not a big deal. ijust wonder what investigated and is not a big deal. i just wonder what the approach we think we should take to charging for contact think we should take to charging for co nta ct to think we should take to charging for contact to public services. it is a bit strange to single out, of course 99 and emergency calls must be free and they always have been. i like the idea of police calls being free but as a general rule, i will defeat a bit of consistency for it is not quite make sense to me. there is a question of its remedy and severity and where if the line drawn for stomach and what you are say but also generally, young people are not on the police unless there is an emergency and lots of stuff that you can do online now in terms of registering and stuff that you can
with gps as well. so there has to be that balancing act. then officiously impose services if they are pushed to the online channel because the phone number comes late charge. maybe there is an upside to that. not a civil essay everything should be free. giles work for the conservative party, so you would expect everything that is nice should be free but sometimes life is a bit more comforted than that but you do see there is always campaigns for hospital parking charges... when you do that, when anything has to be free, that just pushes you do that, when anything has to be free, thatjust pushes the cost to somebody else. not the taxpayer that fits the bill or maybe the mobile phone operator should, not a question it be free but taxpayer—funded. corporate should step up in certain circumstances. of course that is true. but those coffee recycled to the consumers. just like with energy bills, when we are paying for green energy to be built, that comes then and the energy prices go up. the overall cost of mobile phones was to the
same. not not watering amount of money, is a? about if you had called to use 101? i have not, no. not that ican to use 101? i have not, no. not that i can recall. i use the online form. the article goes into the fact that many people have not found it successful. a0 minutes waiting and referring to none and nine instead. frustration. if you could get a great service for 15p him that to me would be a much more important change to make than the 15p charge. let's stay with the telegraph. playtime is over, the bell has rung and school breaks are vanishing. playtime is over, the bell has rung and school breaks are vanishingm is saying it has become a thing of the past. quoting a figure that 1% of secondary schools have entered embrace compared to ai% in 95. i suppose two points here, child obesity campaigners saying this is
an issue of getting exercise. also the water issue of socialisation. kids interacting and communicating ina kids interacting and communicating in a playground. you live in a social media age where people who so much stuff by e—mail and by social media. so there is i suppose concern raised there. we were having a discussion of more beforehand about kids finishing at 330 or whatever works is not that long a day. but i thicket is a balancing act and there should be some element of playtime. secondary school we're talking about here. secondary school, where only 196 here. secondary school, where only 1% have that break. if you look at other countries, the us, secondary school often starts at 7:30am or 8am and then rose to 2pm or so. to be shifted forward but a longer day. in france, spent a couple of weeks at a french secondary school as a exchange student with my school and school laugh until 6pm and that was quite normal. i think it was rightly
pressure to improve the quality of the education in our schools. the exact way to balance that is complicated. personally, as a mother who struggles with afterschool childcare, i would who struggles with afterschool childcare, iwould much who struggles with afterschool childcare, i would much rather have a longer day. me, too. integers will get more and space about relief stress on them. talk about pressure at lunchtime and kids only having ten minutes to eat and that's what needs to be extended may be. let's go to the daily express. i love the stories because i am a gardener. art bluebells in peril. you know, bluebells in peril. you know, bluebells are beautiful and the way they create this carpet but also in they create this carpet but also in the quest for the perfect instagram shechem people have been travelling across bluebell woods and the express has three sepals are people and if you trample the things, then they don't manage to store the energy to come up next year. the last pitcher does sayjust take to
the paths and enjoy it from there. giles, you need to be inspired by this. you are struggling. something really insightful. the trust saying 3000 acres and they are begging people to stay off the land. the point here also is you have english bluebells and spanish bluebells and a lot of these areas for enrichment bills which are under threat. so an ex—pat garden there. bills which are under threat. so an ex-pat garden there. hashtag rebels has more than half a million. there you go. listen to gardner's question time. you learn so much. back at 11:30 p:m.. giles and polly will be back at 11:30 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, giles and polly. goodbye. we still have a few evening showers lurking around. they will continue through the night in one or two areas, but for most it will be dry tonight. tomorrow, however, further showers in the forecast and some could be heavy again, but don't think there will be as many as the last couple of days. the latest satellite image shows a lot of cloud across the uk. you see, pretty sunny earlier on across the south west of the country, cornwall and devon and also the south coast of wales basking in the sunshine there. the forecast then into this evening. still some evening showers around through parts of the south east, the midlands and the north west of england. northern ireland, too. the north east of the uk will be clear and chilly tonight, and temperatures by early friday
could be as low as freezing or lower, even in the bigger towns and cities. but further south, it will be more like a—8 degrees, eight in central london. forecast for tomorrow morning, a lot of sunshine from the word go, but not everywhere. some northern areas could be quite cloudy, there across yorkshire. and clouds bubble up through the morning and in the afternoon, further showers will develop. possible almost anywhere. dry in the north east, but cool here and ten in newcastle. later in the day, all this weather here. some of that rain will probably reach cornwall and devon. as we head into the weekend, high pressure builds across the uk, putting a stop to any weather fronts heading in our direction, so that means the weather will settle down but it will be a very gradual process. that means through saturday, still some blobs of blue, still showers in the forecast and out towards the west, cornwall, devon, wales, northern ireland and western scotland with the dry weather. temperatures higher, into the middle high teens quite widely across the uk on saturday. sunday, the high pressure is slam—bang across the uk and really establishing itself.
a lot of dry weather around and fluffy, fairweather clouds and also turning a bit warmer. temperatures could hit around 18 in cardiff, which is not that spectacular for the time of year. still pretty chilly on the north sea coast, around 12 celsius. the high pressure is still with us next week. this is a blocking high, and it means it will stick around for quite some time. so it looks as though the week ahead is going to be settled and progressively warmer with warmer weather coming our way out of the continent. bye— bye.
