vote was about. the opposition parties backed by those tory rebels will be taking control of the parliamentary process, putting forward legislation which they hope would take no deal off the table. another important day ahead of us, then, tomorrow. that's it from here in westminster. now it's time for the weather, with chris fawkes. hello there. uk forecast in a moment, but first of all what is going on with hurricane dorian. it has been battling the island of grande bahama. it has started to shift a little bit further northwards. the area of strong winds has expanded, but the p when gusts had come down a little bit. look at this through tuesday. gusts of about 130 mph but just 100 this through tuesday. gusts of about 130 mph butjust100 miles away on the east coast of florida, the winds have only been 45 mph. the winds being strong enough to blow the roof of your house and just space of 100 miles. that is why the forecasts are quite nervous with this storm. su btle
quite nervous with this storm. subtle changes in the track could send an area of even stronger winds in across parts of the south—east of the united states which is exactly why forecasters are monitoring this so why forecasters are monitoring this so carefully. for the uk we have a couple of weather fronts coming through on wednesday. both of these fronts actually having cooler air following, so it will be a cooler day across the whole of the country. rain clearing away from east anglia and south—east england quickly. sunshine follows. there will be some showers across sunshine follows. there will be some showers gci’oss western sunshine follows. there will be some showers across western areas. cloudy for northern england, north wales, northern ireland and scotland, with burst of heavy rain. northerly winds, strong and gusty, will bring cooler air into northern scotland. temperatures in aberdeen 13 degrees in the afternoon. it will feel quite chilly here. the rain clears away and it will become dry as it goes through wednesday night. wednesday for many of us will be quite a chilly night with temperatures getting down into low single figures. eastern scotland, north—east england, but another area of rain pushing into western scotla nd of rain pushing into western scotland overnight. that weather front will bring some rather murky
conditions to western coast and hills, a bit of drizzle, some low cloud, mist and fog patches around as well. we will see some of that weather pushed across eastern scotla nd weather pushed across eastern scotland and pushed across into northern scotland as well. the driest weather across the south of the country. temperatures recovering in belfast. highs of 17 here, 15 in aberdeen. slightly milder as well. a cold front bringing rain southwards across england and wales and behind the cold front, cooler air follows. showers affecting north—western areas, some of those heavy and thundery. some sunshine around but those temperatures generally easing around by a couple of degrees. there will be further swings in those temperatures as we head into the weekend, as well. saturday for many of us quite a quiet day. there will be some cloud around but also some bright and sunny spells, perhaps some of these affecting south—western wales, where temperatures could reach 19 degrees in cardiff, northern scotland, 13 and nothing especially specialfor this time of year. sunday sees another warm front move across the country. the winds turned to a
south—westerly direction, a milder direction, and wherever we see some sunshine breaking through it probably won't feel bad at all. temperatures up to 20 or so in london. temperatures recovering further northwards, highs of 18 in belfast. now, hurricane dorian is going to be grazing the east coast of the united states over the next few days, and this could still have a bearing on our weather. it looks likely that the hurricane will undergo its extratropical transition. it has transition to a normal area of low pressure which will head up towards the iceland area. we get a weather front associated with that low moving across the northern part of the uk, bringing some rain. notice how the weather front is swinging and waving around, that is likely to bring some further swings in temperatures early next week but it could be wet at times across northern areas. that's your latest weather. goodbye for now.
the ayes to the right, 328. the noes to the left, 301. the ayes have it, the ayes have it. mps have voted to take control of the commons by a majority of 27, which means a debate will take place tomorrow over plans to stop a no—deal brexit. the pm called it a ‘pointless delay‘. because tomorrow's bill would hand control of the negotiations to the eu and that would mean more dither, more delay, more confusion. and it would mean that the eu themselves would be able to decide how long to keep this country in the eu. protestors celebrated outside the commons, as borisjohnson indicated he would
push for an early general election. if mps vote tomorrow to stop the negotiations and to compel another pointless delay of brexit, potentially four potentially for years, then that will be the only way to resolve this. i can confirm that tonight we will be tabling a motion under the fixed—term parliaments act. he wants to table a motion for a general election. fine. get the bill through first in order to prevent... in order to take no deal off the table. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow. with me are brexit editor at the telegraph, dia chakravarty and journalist at the wall street journal, anna isaac. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the guardian says it's ‘humiliation‘ for boris johnson as a number of tory rebels turn against the government in tonight's crucial brexit vote. and the metro also highlights how mps have chosen to take back control from the prime minister, in a bid to block a no deal brexit. the mirror leads with the same — how borisjohnson has lost control of the commons and how the leader of the opposition, jeremy corbyn is bidding to take no—deal off the table. the times front page ‘pm loses historic vote'. it focuses on how 21 tory rebels defied the government despite threats of expulsion from the conservative party from borisjohnson. and the telegraph with how the prime minister was forced by mps
into seeking a snap general election if they choose to vote to block a no—deal brexit tomorrow. the independent, a similar theme, explaining how borisjohnson has not only lost control of the brexit negotiations but has also lost his working majority as former tory mp phillip leejoins the lib dems. and finally, the i with the same headline, but focussing on how mp's who voted against the government, including former chancellor phillip hammond, face deselection. we have heard tonight from government sources that they lost the conservative whip and have been kicked out of the party. so let's start with the times. the prime minister loses an historic vote. to be fair, not a huge surprise although maybe the scale of the defeat was a bit of a surprise. it
isa defeat was a bit of a surprise. it is a large number of mps who voted against him from his own side. certainly not a surprise that he lost but the level of drama gathered by some of the characters involved turning against the government was a surprise. you had the defection today of a prominent mp to the liberal democrats and now you have 21 tory mps, some of the most prominent mps in the party, effectively not being tories any longer. philip hammond was chancellor six weeks ago and as far as we know from government sources he will no longer be a tory mp. there is a bit of lu on blue action to be expected and then there is a party genuinely falling apart and i think this is really where we are at right now. is that how you see it? the party falling apart? this is the future, that for so long there has been a massive division over europe.
but with 20 odd mps kicked out of the party there is a chance they could go and set up a rival conservative party do you think? they could. but i think the way our political system and our country has traditionally worked is that no parties have really done very well. this may change. things have changed completely. anna made an interesting point because she highlighted a massive realignment of politics that has happened in our country and we now see philip hammond six weeks ago chancellor, a tory chancellor and a traditional tory at that and he now seems to be working with jeremy corbyn who he would have called a sworn marxist not so long ago, to bring about something that they both think is important enough to set party political differences aside. it is incredible that doctor philip
lee, who anna just mentioned to moved from the tories to the lib dems today, he had a bill in 2014 where he put in an amendment saying hiv positive immigrants should be ke pt hiv positive immigrants should be kept out of the country. he was clarifying that earlier today. but there is another liberal democrat now, a previously tory person, doctor sarah wollaston who was a signatory on the same amendment. but now the only thing that matters to all politicians is being pro—brexit or pro remain. what do you think happens next, anna? on some papers they say that boris johnson has lost this vote and he cannot get a vote through for a general election. so he is stuck. it is difficult because
the labour position on whether or not it wants a general election and the timing thereof has been very difficult to pin down recently. much has been made ofjeremy corbyn ‘s remarks this evening when he said that we can have a general election if you want one but only when this bill that will avoid a cliff edge no deal on october 31 is passed. that may be as soon as friday that the dealers passed but we do not know what would happen if boris tries to have a vote and election in the meantime. if he does not get an outright majority on that vote, what might the prospect before a simple majority if that comes in the next few weeks, for him to try and get the fixed term parliament act working in his favour a second time. labour effectively are saying that it would be a trick and that although the government are now talking about an election on october 15 that actually maybe... say he has
an election, he would have it after we fell out of the eu, sometime in november. labour main concern, i think, is when will the date be? again, it shows trust broken down between two parties that even people within the party. someone was saying just the same thing. it still seems difficult for labour whose narrative over the last two years is that we must get rid of the tory tiring, but now they say let's not have an election just yet. we tiring, but now they say let's not have an electionjust yet. we might be able to get it through if they can push the mantra that we just need no deal of the table but again i think they will keep being needled by the parliament conservative saying if you want an election, give us one. saying if you want an election, give us one. the guardian talks about humiliation for boris johnson us one. the guardian talks about humiliation for borisjohnson and he loses an historic vote. listing some
of the rebel mps and we gather that the 21 tory mps have been told they are out of the party tonight. that includes sir nicholas soames, winston churchill ‘s grandson. this is serious stuff within the conservative party. the father of the house, ken clarke. philip hammond, another who will no longer bea hammond, another who will no longer be a tory. it is extraordinary. and we have heard in recent days how these rebels were called into number 10 and discussions were had. they tried to avoid this defeat and they did notjust accept it would happen and tried to ride out the storm. they tried to avoid it. and by what —— threatening to withdraw the whip, they made people doubled down on their position. and now, the
brexiteers have a long history of rebellion themselves and now these pre— european rebels are not being disciplined but also kicked out of the party. i think they would have been emboldened by the 2016 referendum result and now they have the country support behind them and thatis the country support behind them and that is how they want to view it and therefore they would want to deliver it. but i think many people who perhaps did not campaign or even vote for brexit within the conservative party and even within the parliamentary party, now feel that if brexit is delivered not only will the party be destroyed but the country will also suffer a serious lack of trust between politicians. let's go to the telegraph, your paper. their headline is that boris johnson demands an election. the introduction and the story is the borisjohnson introduction and the story is the boris johnson last night introduction and the story is the borisjohnson last night was introduction and the story is the boris johnson last night was forced into sneaking —— seeking a snap election after falling victim to an unprecedented parliamentary coup. is
this a coup orjust a vote by the house of commons? everything depends on how you see it. is prorogation a coup by the executive? it is unprecedented for the parliament to take control of treaty negotiation. surely a democratic vote in a democratic parliamentary institution can't be a coup, can it? i am sure many people would agree with you, but a fair few people would think we do have separation of power in that the executive is entrusted with negotiating treaties, and indeed signing treaties. that power will decidedly be taken away from the executive tomorrow if the no—deal brexit bill goes through. and interestingly, also in the telegraph isa interestingly, also in the telegraph is a new opinion poll quoting yougov saying the tory lead if and when we
get this election, we don't know when it might be, but the tory lead has been stretched to ten points, 35- 25%. yes, it is really hard to pin that down. polls are so time sensitive, we don't know how people will have reacted to the fallout from today's developments. what is interesting in that poll is a lot was made of the fact that the tories with their hardening line on a no deal brexit pulling some power from the brexit party we saw at local elections and european elections, and were walking that line quite carefully a nd and were walking that line quite carefully and saying we would like a deal but we are prepared for no deal. you had jacob rees—mogg trying to reinforce that earlier this evening saying that we are good boy scouts, we are well prepared. but working that line picks up on what we are all saying that his argument was that parliament derives its sovereignty from the people, and therefore the referendum is still therefore the referendum is still the ultimate arbiter of that sovereignty, but whether or not that pole lead can be maintained when
walking this line of we want a deal but we are prepared to push hard for no deal if that is the only alternative we can get where it is a cce pta ble alternative we can get where it is acceptable for us in terms of the irish backstop. thatjust became a lot more difficult. lets go on to the independent. it has a headline with boris johnson the independent. it has a headline with borisjohnson scratching his head, ruffling that famous hair. saying he loses control. again, that slightly colourful language? he is still prime minister. he has obviously lost his working majority, down to —20 or 22 or something now. what has he lost control, is that overstating it? you make a fine point. the opposition parties may actually want to keep him as prime minister, if they don't give him the election they are after. but he has lost control of the agenda from 3pm tomorrow onwards, it will be the commons that takes over the agenda
in the house of commons, which is traditionally the executive's prerogative. so in that sense it is true. i think there is quite a long way to go from actually being able to write borisjohnson completely off as to write borisjohnson completely offasa to write borisjohnson completely off as a prime minister yet. i think there will be divisions that will be preventing the rebel alliance, if you like, to also put forward a leader who could actually challenge him in any meaningful way. so ultimately me might have a situation where there is a void. to quote churchill, it is all—powerful, to be impotent. we don't know what they will do with this power. if the election is soon and he loses he will be the shortest serving prime minister in history, apparently. yes, i think it is something like 190 days. not very long. two not very long at all, i think it is
1827. and for a man who has wanted thejob all his 1827. and for a man who has wanted the job all his life, that would be a difficult moment. if he does get an election it is a big gamble. a difficult moment. if he does get an election it is a big gamblem is one that he cares about on a personal level, and he has onlyjust got his dog in the house. let's conclude with the metro. mps take control. i suppose a lot of play on ta ke control. i suppose a lot of play on take back control, which was the vote leave slogan, so a lot of papers talking about parliament effectively taking back control. and it has, but if you remember, it had taken back control once before with an amendment earlier and then it failed to do anything with it. so just like the government keeps saying, or theresa may's government kept saying, i keep bring back a deal and you keep voting it down but parliament never actually tells us
what it will stand behind and that remains an issue for parliament. i don't really see what if any majority there is within this current structure to actually provide a solution. they take back control from the executive, then what? the point remains. control from the executive, then what? the point remainslj control from the executive, then what? the point remains. i suppose what? the point remains. i suppose what they are in favour of his another delay. that is what the government would say, that is what they are united around. not com pletely they are united around. not completely united, but that is what the vote in favour tonight was effectively for — another delay. the vote in favour tonight was effectively for — another delaylj think we have known for a long time that the only consensus parliament has is that it doesn't want to know deal brexit. as we said, there is no consensus on deal brexit. as we said, there is no consensus on what the future relationship or to look like, because there is a vast spectrum. it isa because there is a vast spectrum. it is a problem tojust label the tories who rebelled this evening, who will not be tories anymore, as stra ig htforwa rdly who will not be tories anymore, as straightforwardly remainers now. all of them, ora straightforwardly remainers now. all of them, or a very large proportion of them, or a very large proportion of them, or a very large proportion of them, did back the withdrawal
agreement as it was presented by theresa may. that was still a brexit of sorts, whether or not you agreed with it. that is not remaining in the eu on the present terms. there is that whole spectrum through to the snp, which is very much remained. how that is resolved is a different story —— very much remain. thank you forjoining us for the coverage of a really momentous day at westminster. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it is 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, dia and anna. goodbye. good evening. i'm sarah mulkerrins
here at the bbc sports centre. british number one johanna konta is out of the us open after she was beaten in straight sets by the ukrainian fifth seed, elina svitolina. konta was the first british woman to reach the quarter—finals of the tournament sincejo durie in 1983, but could not go any further after she was defeated 6—4, 6—4 on the arthur ashe court. svitolina is the highest seed left in the draw, and will now play serena williams or china's wang qiang in the last four. england have failed to win for a second successive game since the world cup, that following a 2—1 friendly defeat in norway this evening. the defeat follows a 3—3 draw with belgium last week. jo currie has the details from bergen. well, after that disappointing draw against belgium last week, the lionesses landed in bergen eager to improve. and they — maybe that
should be sta nway improve. and they — maybe that should be stanway — set out a stall early on with this audacious effort. the 20—year—old manchester city striker lighting up the stadium with this pinpoint finish. she almost couldn't believe just how good it was. her team—mates, though, certainly could, as they went 1—0 at the restart, telford got a glove to to this effort, pushing it around the post, however she could do nothing about the resulting corner, maanumjumping nothing about the resulting corner, maanum jumping highest to head home and norway were level, england again susceptible from a set piece. phil neville's side pushed for a winner, with this shot from the unconventional position of midfield rather than right back. england carved open at the back, caroline graham hansen had plenty of time to find the net and secure the wind. we got punished, that is what good players do, hansen is a good player. but for me, we have to keep working on the basics of passing the ball. our defending today in the first
half especially was much better, but the fundamental basics of football, passing to each other, i still thought we were sloppy. it is pre— season, they are still trying to find their rhythm, but they still expect more from us. also while speaking to the bbc, phil neville said there had been no approach from usa despite being linked to the va ca nt usa despite being linked to the vacant manager's job. he says usa despite being linked to the vacant manager'sjob. he says he is fully focused on england. as for the players, they now had back to their clu bs, players, they now had back to their clubs, many preparing for the start of the women's super league this weekend. england now back in action on five october, a big date for your diary, because brazil are coming to the riverside. marta will beer and middlesbrough. —— will be in middlesborough. and there was late drama in the european championship qualifier between wales and northern ireland. kayleigh green headed the welsh 2—1 up in the second half, but northern ireland won a free—kick in the fourth minute of stoppage time and it was bundled in by theircaptain, ashleigh hutton, on the night she won her 100th cap. england have made one change to the side for tomorrow's fourth
ashes test at old trafford. somerset pace bowler craig overton will win only his fifth test cap as he replaces chris woakes. overton actually made his debut against australia in the last ashes series and took the wicket of steve smith, who makes his comeback at old trafford after recovering from concussion. overton was called into the squad oncejimmy anderson was ruled out of the series, which stands at 1—1. scotland have named their rugby world cup squad. centres hquones and rory hutchinson are two surprise omissions. stuart mcinally, who led scotland to victory in the calcutta cup in the six nations championship earlier this year, will captain the side injapan. the edinburgh hooker has been chosen as skipper ahead ofjohn barclay and greig laidlaw. coach gregor townsend has left out forwards josh strauss, matt fagerson and magnus bradbury. that's all the sport for now. hello there. for the rest of this
week, temperatures will be around or a little below the seasonal average, and infact a little below the seasonal average, and in fact wednesday will be one of those days where the temperatures will be below the seasonal average. and in fact, with strong winds it is going to feel quite cool, especially across northern areas, especially where the showers come along. it is all because of this area of low pressure skirting around this area of high pressure. it's going extend two weather fronts our way, this one bringing outbreaks of rain to central, southern and eastern areas first thing on wednesday. that will clear away. sunshine behind this next weather front will enhance the shower activity across scotland, northern ireland, northern england and north wales. some of them will be heavy, maybe even thundery. in those when strong, pushing it from the north—west. gusts 40—50 mph, may be stronger than that especially around southsea coast. it will be chilly around the north. 17/19 perhaps across the south—east. through wednesday night, the showers continue for a while and then begin to fade away as a ridge of high pressure begins to build in from the south—west. but there will be
further showers across northern and western areas and it is going to be another chilly start to thursday, with temperatures in single figures for much of the country. so this is the pressure pattern for thursday. high—pressure building and again, like i mentioned. the wind not as strong as wednesday, but they will still be quite breezy, especially in the north and west. because pressure is building and it should be a little bit drier with more sunshine around. that said, there will be a warm front pushing into the west of the country. that will introduce a band of cloud, one or two showers on it, tending to fizzle out as it moves southwards and eastwards. it will introduce slightly milder air to the north and the west, 15— 17 degrees for scotland and northern ireland, 17—19 across the south—east. on friday we have another area of low pressure pushing down from the north—west. it won't be quite as windy as what we will see on wednesday, but a blustery day. outbreaks of rain spreading southwards and eastwards and behind
it something cool and pressure again. temperatures in the low teens in the north, 17 or 18 across the south and east. like i mentioned, those temperatures generally hovering around or just those temperatures generally hovering around orjust below the seasonal average. as we head onto the weekend, high—pressure wants to build and once again. that will settle things down i think. saturday and sunday we should see a fair amount of sunshine around, temperatures probably close to 20 degrees in the south. into next week it looks like it will be much of the same, with an atlantic air influence.
i'm kasia madera in london. the headlines: the ayes to the right, 328. the noes to the left, 301. a major defeat for britain's prime minister as mps try to block a no deal brexit. ifigo to if i go to brussels, i will go for a deal and i believe i will get a deal. we will leave anyway, even if we don't leave on october 31. there is no consent in this house to leave the european union without a deal.
