‘you're given a ‘yeu're given a blanket to know. if you're given a blanket standing, that masks and hides what could be real problems in the skill as has been the case when a school has been given outstanding and then find that there is massive safeguarding issues three months later. we need to get parents much better information about their skills than the current one size fits all and actually fits nothing system fits all and actually fits nothing syste m tha n fits all and actually fits nothing system than ofsted promotes —— they need to be given much better information about their schools. thank you very much. now it's time for a look at the weather with helen willetts. hello, although we had some time to start for some eastern parts of the uk, it has all changed today. we had a series of weather fronts sat gci’oss a series of weather fronts sat across the uk. with thundery showers are followed across the uk. with thundery showers a re followed by across the uk. with thundery showers are followed by more persistent rain and yet more showers. at the far north—east of scotland may skip
mostly dry and fine, but there are some showers to come here. they could be thundery, this band of rain follows a nd could be thundery, this band of rain follows and stretches across another and to the south—east and following brighter skies, potentially, but more showers. there is concern that we could see up to 30 millimetres of line and localised flooding. still warm, but not as warm as it has been. that way now across the stewards of scotland. it dries up free time i did, but it will stay relatively mild. just a bit misty and murky first thing in the morning, and that we have the next round of rain in the south—west of england, wales and northern ireland. wednesday morning mist clears away and the rain, it should be a fairly decent day. hello, this is bbc news. the headlines... labour promises free prescriptions for all as it tries to put policy back in the spotlight at a party conference overshadowed by internal rows.
thomas cook will hold emergency talks this morning as it attempts to agree a rescue deal to prevent it from going bust. protesters are gathering at a shopping mall in hong kong where they want shoppers to boycott companies they say are pro—beijing. cities around the world will close their streets to traffic for world car free day. organisers want to promote greener travel alternatives. and our sunday morning edition of the papers is coming injust a moment. this morning's reviewers are anne ashworth, the associate editor of the times, and the business commentatorjosie cox. before the papers, sport, and, for a full round up, from the bbc sport centre, here's holly hamilton. how is the rugby going? very well, from my perspective. ireland and scotland have begun their rugby world cup campaign — their opening game is under way in yokohama. ireland going over the line three times in the first half.
tries from james ryan, rory best and tadgh furlong — all ploughing overfrom close range. jonny sexton with the extras gives ireland a 19—3 lead at half time. england also start later. they face tonga at 11.15 in sapporo. four years ago, they became the first host nation to be knocked out in the group stage. eddiejones took over as head coach following that tournament and he says his side now have a big responsibility to show what they can do on the biggest stage. you get that feeling now, it's the real thing, you are there, you're on the big stage. and it is notjust rugby fans will be watching these games, it becomes a family event, so the responsibility you hold in making sure your country plays with pride and passion is very important. the early match this morning saw italy run in a 117—22 win over namibia. a damian stevens early try
hinted at a possible upset as namibia took the lead. but italy eventually ran in a total of seven tries to ease to a comfortable victory. they also picked up a bonus point so sit top of pool b above the all blacks after their opening games. canada have yet to play. away from the rugby world cup, manchester city came back from that shock defeat to norwich last weekend in emphatic style with a devastating 8—0 victory over watford. it took just 52 seconds for david silva to set them on their way at the etihad. and byjust the 18th minute, nicolas 0tamendi had made it 5—0. that's the quickest any team has made it to that margin in the premier league. bernardo silva went on to claim the match ball with a hat—trick as city cut liverpool's lead at the top to just two points. a good afternoon for our fans, supporters, and a lovely day in the sunshine, and the game...
it is weird, the difference is the players that manchester city has. the video assistant referee played a pivotal role as tottenham lost 2—1 at leicester city. spurs would have taken a 2—0 lead after serge aurier‘s goal, but var ruled son heung—min was offside in the build up. leicester then levelled, before a great strike byjames maddison turned the game round. the 2—1 win for leicester moves them up to third. spurs manager mauricio pochettino said he had no complaints about the technology, despite the defeat. elsewhere, there were wins for burnley and sheffield united, while newcastle and brighton finished goalless. there's four matches today — all in london. the pick of them sees leaders liverpool face chelsea at stamford bridge. in the scottish premiership, leaders celtic and rangers are both in action today, while aberdeen
moved up to third on saturday after a 2—0 win away at livingston. andrew considine gave the visitors the lead, a second goal from the penalty spot gave them all three points and stretched their unbeaten run to five, whilst livingston drop down to sixth. elsewhere, ross county won at motherwell, while st mirren and hamilton finished goalless. the big guns in the spanish league are finding it hard going at the start of the season. there was another defeat last night for barcelona. they were beaten 2—0 at granada, with the first goal coming in just the second minute. granada are now top of the table. lionel messi started on the bench. his side are now without a win in all four away matches this season. ferrari's charles leclerc now has more pole positions than any other driver this formula 1 season after claiming the top spot on the grid for the singapore grand prix. the 21—year—old from monaco is also
looking to complete a hat—trick of wins from pole after doing so in the last two races. he stormed round the marina bay street circuit, beating championship leader lewis hamilton by almost two tenths of a second. marc marquez will be favourite to win the aragon motogp for a fourth year in a row after claiming pole position for his home race. the spaniard claimed his ninth pole of the season. marquez‘s championship rival andrea dovizioso could only manage tenth. britain's cal crutchlow will start from seventh. dame sarah storey won the women's c5 class race at the yorkshire para cycling international. the world champion triumphed in the tokyo 2020 qualifying race from tadcaster to harrogate. storey‘s race was one of several para—cycling events held yesterday on the eve of the uci road world championships. the essex eagles are cricket's t20 blast champions after a thrilling climax to the competition at edgbaston. it all came down to the final ball. they needed two to win and captain simon harmer scored a boundary off the final delivery, as they beat
worcestershire rapids by four wickets. chasing a worcestershire total of 145—9, harmer came in to hammer 18 from just seven deliveries to give essex their first ever t20 title. that's all the sport for now. now on bbc news, here's ben brown with the papers. hello and welcome to our sunday morning paper review. with me are anne ashworth, associate editor at the times, and the business commentator josie cox. welcome to you both, thank you for being with us. let's take a look at the front pages. the sunday telegraph looks at the future of labour and the party's leader, jeremy corbyn, suggesting that succession plans are well under way. the sunday times
says the party has been plunged into fresh chaos, after a senior adviser quit. he reportedly doesn't believe labour could win a general election. the observer also leads on labour, reporting on the party's plans to scrap the school inspectorate, 0fsted. nigel farage's views make the front page of the sunday express. he says any delay to the brexit process will force the prime minister to abandon hopes of a deal with the eu and go for what he calls a clean break. and the mail on sunday has the story of the 80—year—old great grandmother who was cleared of murdering her husband in a failed suicide pact. a quick look at the front pages. starting with the labour party getting off to quite a chaotic, crazy, controversial start to their party conference in brighton, tom watson, deputy leader, plot against
him, drive—by shooting. sunday times lead story, key aid walks out. tell us lead story, key aid walks out. tell us about that. party conferences are about low politics and high policy and this is low politics. andrew fisher, not many people may have heard of him, the architect of labour's 2017 manifesto. he has worked out voicing out are discussed ina memo worked out voicing out are discussed in a memo seen by the sunday times at every aspect ofjeremy corbyn‘s teen‘s running of the operation, talking about class war, inability to form any kind of strategy that would make the party electable —— jeremy corbyn‘s team's running of the operation. very big departure, not a household name, but key. when people saw the story, they said the project is rotting from the head,
the high tide of corbynism. extraordinary logic in a week when we have heard the deputy leader tom watson talk about the attempt to unseat him as a drive past shooting, not the language we expect from our politicians. one of the most damaging lines and that may be, denouncing the leader's team for a lack of professionalism and competence. i have had people comment on this saying it is a real psychodrama, bloodbath in brighton, probably the worst agatha christie novel title ever but quite accurate. the word is used, vocabulary, rhetoric, it is outright war. what most shocked us reading it outside, we sat reading the papers, a bit low, talking aboutjeremy corbyn, seventh man, in the last days of decrepitude, a quote here —— 70—year—old man, an ally of corbyn,
you would be rationally frightened ofa you would be rationally frightened of a 70—year—old man dropping down dead. they are emphasising his decrepitude and suggesting he actually wants to go. whether or not thatis actually wants to go. whether or not that is his view... takes us onto the sunday telegraph, josie, hard left in the party apparently planning for his succession already, planning for his succession already, planning for his succession already, planning for life afterjeremy corbyn. looks like he is ready to pack it in, says labour frontbencher, tory rebels pledged able never back into the prime minister. this is the kind of language he would not expect from the party colleagues. this comes on the party colleagues. this comes on the back of the poll earlier this week showing he is the lowest polling opposition leader ever. there is obviously some truth to the fa ct there is obviously some truth to the fact that his sustainability and his
viability as somebody who could potentially lead the country is certainly up for question, to say the very least. but nonetheless, the rhetoric and the words and sentiment we are getting from this is quite frankly pretty awful. almost the race is on to find his successor, according to reports. the papers are suggesting it is more likely to be keir starmer, emily thornberry, what than one of the allies ofjeremy corbyn. if you were jo than one of the allies ofjeremy corbyn. if you werejo swinson on the liberal leader, reading the papers, you would feel you had to really set the cat among the pigeons. her declaration the liberal democrats were the anti brexit party seems to have... these feelings were already running high but it seems to have driven the top of the labour party interaction, saying, we really need to get rid ofjeremy corbyn —— into action. they believe the rebel
tory mps would never support him if there was a no—confidence motion against borisjohnson. realistically, jeremy corbyn is going to be the leader for a while, isn't he? who knows, at this point, with a support base like that. the brexit issue is another issue that is really difficult for the labour party and it will rear its head in the conference this week in brighton. absolutely, that is one area of policy where jeremy corbyn could rile up support and yet he is sitting on the fence, the cutting sums it up nicely in the telegraph, english breakfast or continental breakfast, asked the continental bellboy? you cannot remain neutral, mr corbyn. some hard logic behind all of the machinations because you are not going to be able to win an election if your leader is operating a stance of constructive ambiguity on the biggest issue facing the nation which is brexit and because
he does not want to be open about his real feelings, he he does not want to be open about his realfeelings, he is not gaining public confidence. he does not want to alienate levers or remainers. by not deciding, he is alienating both. we have got some policy pronouncements from labour, talking about scrapping of state, getting rid of prescription fees in england as well, josie, with a view to an election being pretty imminent. the question of an scrapping offset is, what on earth would they replace it with? yes, there are ways in which ofsted can be improved, but the infrastructure, the structure of it asa infrastructure, the structure of it as a body setting standards, creating accountability and transparency, the role of that is definitely needed to regulate the education system. we were talking to a teaching union leaderjust now, saying, the trouble is, at the
moment, 0fsted labels school is as good, outstanding, needing improvement, they are too general, they mask quite a lot of specifics, a school might do well in english, bad mats, ends up with a blanket description, that was her explanation. -- bad in mathematics. pa rents explanation. -- bad in mathematics. parents need a yardstick to judge the school. the 0fsted ratings may not be perfect but they give some kind of indication and parents would be looking at local council assessments of schools and wondering whether they were sufficiently independent. there is a benefit to having an outside body, whether or not it works perfectly or not, come in and look at a school and assessed and all on the same criteria. —— assessed them all. in the story, another extraordinary assertion, the labour party is seriously considering a plan to make care services for the over 65s free at the point of use excluding accommodation costs. the piece notes
it would require huge tax increases. is this going to be there idea for solving the social care crisis, that it would be free for all? how would 30 and a0 somethings feel about the income tax bills that would require? an extraordinary thing that 0fsted is not something that preoccupies the nation greatly but social care isa the nation greatly but social care is a massive issue and will be so if and when the election comes. what about thomas cook? crucial meeting today, as we speak, to try to see if it can rustle up the £200 million it needs to stave off bankruptcy. really sad story. a real institution, notjust on really sad story. a real institution, not just on the travel industry, corporate britain. almost 180 years old. oldest package holiday firm in country. charming story as well. this looks like increasingly there is no other
alternative but administration. having crunch talks this morning, 9am, scheduled to speak to the biggest investor, chinese group, and a slew of banks who have lent the money in the past, but the share price was down 22% on friday, this is really crisis time for them. should the government step in? there is talk of appealing for some kind of bailout which we saw back in the financial crisis, but i think that sets a very dangerous precedent and the other argument is when it comes to banks, there is real evidence of the systemic risk banks have to the broader economy, a travel company, huge travel company, massive brand name, thousands of people employed, but whether it has or would have a systemic impact on the rest of the economy, i think that is questionable. people might ask, why should the government baylor thomas cook for perhaps not having dealt with the many challenges coming at
its business model? —— bailout. why should the government bailed them out? one of the extraordinary irony is, something raised quite a lot at the labour party conference, the chief banker, remember, this week, they insisted another 200 million be found, that is obvious, bailed out, by the taxpayer. the repercussions of this will be extraordinary, huge amounts of job losses. .. of this will be extraordinary, huge amounts ofjob losses... 600 million for the repatriation of people on thomas cook holidays. it seems like this is a company that has been entirely disrupted by the way in which we book holidays now and if we we re which we book holidays now and if we were to sum up the thomas cook brand, what would we say? is it a package tour operator? airline? there is a lack of clarity. this is not the only story of this type that
we will be reading this autumn and winter. duchess of sussex, meghan markle, handing out archie's baby clothes, colouring books, pens, to the children of south africa. the family embarked on their official tour this week. in the sunday telegraph. part of the rehabilitation of the image of the duchess? i think so. we need a nice good news story on the front pages, this is definitely welcome. i think it is quite nice this is a down—to—earth gesture that she is making. it says here she is always keen to display actions not words. this is her doing something that anyone can do. we can all take items we do not need any more and donate them to charity, whatever they may be. quite a nice story of her trying to display government has she been u nfa i rly to display government has she been
unfairly maligned? it is a complex soap opera. -- has she been unfairly maligned? if soap opera. -- has she been unfairly maligned ? if you soap opera. -- has she been unfairly maligned? if you read the comments underneath the story about meghan markle, people say, it is rubbish, i don't know why i spent five minutes reading it. you feel like saying you did because it is fascinating. compelling. i am fascinated by this woman. i think it is quite interesting. they are going to try a new tack, roll up their sleeves, she will be seen in jeans and a new tack, roll up their sleeves, she will be seen injeans and a shirt and we will finally see what baby archie looks like, maybe? i am longing for that. i would be the first to confess it. i am glad to hear you admit you are absolutely fascinating. i know not everyone is, controversial. good to be honest. let us talk about food at universities. the observer, a story about vegetarian food being very much on the many at universities,
ke ba bs much on the many at universities, kebabs are out, meat free college menus on the rise as students return to university. you are vegetarian for a while. not any longer. very much of the time, there are plenty of statistics, the observer has one, five year high in terms of the numberof five year high in terms of the number of vegetarians and vegans. students very vocal about particular issues, environmentalism, obviously, that they climb it much as we have seenin that they climb it much as we have seen in the last few days, i believe it is car free day around the world. speaking to the movement of the moment, zeitgeist. not a huge surprise. perhaps what is a little bit extreme in my opinion, some universities have banned red meat which i am not sure how that will come across. i think students tend to like to do what they want to do and be able... have the freedom to eat what they want. when i was a
student, i ate unhealthily. conflicts, mainly. would you have been sad to have been denied a nice beef stew with carrots? i think there is something to... i wonder how many parents will start sneaking in meat filled ready meals and how many people will be down at one or the fast food joints having a bad because as josie the fast food joints having a bad because asjosie says, what the fast food joints having a bad because as josie says, what you the fast food joints having a bad because asjosie says, what you are denied as a student, that is what you most want to do. this is not every day. it seems to be a movement, very much promoted during freshers week's which have just ended at some of our universities. veganism tends to be cheaper as well, maybe that will play into the equation. strictly it is back, i know you are a bit of a fan.|j equation. strictly it is back, i know you are a bit of a fan. i tend not to get really into it until november, i cannot take too many sequence before november, but it is
another one of those things that fascinates us, the couples dancing together, the romance dies, we have a professional had —— professional dancing couple, announced their marriage was over, they take to the dance floor to win the coveted lickable, they did not come to blows. they are professional people. —— the coveted glitter ball. is this the last waltz for darling craig? a man deliciously critical, i think we would all agree. we love the put—downs. would all agree. we love the put-downs. he likes being nasty, doesn't he? he may be poised to make a dramatic exit from the show in the wa ke a dramatic exit from the show in the wake of his barbed remarks about the reigning champion, his otherjudges, and he gets into the rather thorny debate about equal pay for men and women. it would not be the same without him. in the show since 2004.
it needs a bit of an edge, that sort of show. he is the great in it. his absolute commitment to a certain kind of old—fashioned ballroom dancing is crucial —— grit. kind of old—fashioned ballroom dancing is crucial -- grit. you are not a dancing is crucial -- grit. you are notafan? dancing is crucial -- grit. you are not a fan? i cannot pretend i know anything about it. before you go out on the saturday night, it is great to watch strictly. you go out, nobody looks quite as good, that is life. ever been tempted to be on the show? i think we all dream. i don't, i have to say, more like a nightmare. thank you so much for being with us, looking through the sunday morning papers. that is it for the papers for now. tonight, 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.

this is bbc news, i'm ben brown. the headlines at 10am. jeremy corbyn says he wasn't aware in advance of an attempt to oust his deputy tom watson and dismissed criticism from an aide who says he thinks the party won't win the next election i think he said that because he was extremely distressed at that point about whatever was going on in discussions within the office at that moment. thomas cook will hold emergency talks this morning as it attempts to agree a rescue deal to prevent it from going bust. one couple are due to get married in las vegas but are unsure if it will happen or not. you know, we do not know what we're going to do, i sound a bit flippant, but obviously it is emotional and it is an emotional time for any bride
