10:45 pm
real is where it's going to have a real challenge, that rat hasn't really affected this so far, but perhaps it could. but, the paper also says labour may have to co—operate themselves hear. yes, i think that's certainly the reaction among remainders on scene effectively nigel farage, someone who is touring the bbc and other outlets saying that the dreadful new treaty was the reason why he might as well field 600 candidates across the country and if necessary, stop brexit. making people think that maybe he was happy to have remain in place, because he hated borisjohnson's deal so much. now, suddenly, suggesting that he's 0k deal so much. now, suddenly, suggesting that he's ok with it, really. that it is strong enough for him to sit back and if borisjohnson wins a majority for the deal, so be it. given this, dare i say, a parent leave alliance, although, for roche because of a unilateral leave alliance, so self pardoning as emma watson would call it, maybe jeremy corbyn needs to do something similar. that's the idea of the argument being made, because we have
10:46 pm
seen the remain alliance being forged between the lib dems and greens. obviously labour has been staying out of this, admittedly because jeremy corbyn has his own brexit coalition of the remainders on his front bench, and he himself being the more you're a sceptic persuasion to manage. basically brexit years are coming together, maybe remainders need to do the same. sienna, the trays only need nine more seats to get a majority from the figures i've been looking at, jeremy corbyn saying that they are not in the business of talking about deals with other parties, are they going to have to reconsider here? i don't think that's going to happen, quite simply. labouralways has this ethos of actually, we want to give voters the choice, do they wa nt to give voters the choice, do they want from you know, labour, lib dems, green,, it's not right for political parties like labour to throw their weight around and decide what voters and push them into voting for a certain centre left or left party, they just voting for a certain centre left or left party, theyjust don't agree with that, but also in terms of the politics of it, it's not going to
10:47 pm
happen. because joe swinson, politics of it, it's not going to happen. becausejoe swinson, her first priority isn't to stop brexit, her first priority is to stopjeremy corbyn getting into number ten, much like the tories. there is a dissent on their with labour not doing deals. i've noticed that iain duncan smith's seats, the greens have stepped aside to help labour. that is up to the green stuff, but labour actually hasn't reciprocated oi’ labour actually hasn't reciprocated or offered anything back. it's interesting the way the you say that to me could argue from the tories point of view, they haven't really given echo through anything expected — — except given echo through anything expected —— except explain their deal more thoroughly. so nigel farage has taken the thoroughly. so nigel farage has ta ken the latter thoroughly. so nigel farage has taken the latter he has been given and compromising we are with the greens, clearly. i think and compromising we are with the greens, clearly. ithink what happened there is, yes, boris johnson emphasised, really highlighted what they call the chapter to no—deal in 2020. that seems to be what's got nigel farage to agree to this, really. sienna, i was looking at the labour list, and there were some figures that you put on there saying that the brexit party withdraws much of its majority
10:48 pm
of support from 70 — just make present from x tory voters and only 17% present from x tory voters and only i7% from former labour voters, what about floater voters, i decided? that is interesting, so obviously, all of this is predicated on this is what really matters. where does the brexit party draw it support, and where do the lib dems draw their support as well? so both of those, it makes the issue much more complicated than you kind of first see it. in those labour leaves seeds, it could be, it's quite complicated to figure out where the brexit party is standing there —— labour leave seats. it really allows labour leave seats. it really allows labour to come through, or, you know, the brexit party standing down, will of that really help the tories that much? it's actually quite completed. 0k, tories that much? it's actually quite completed. ok, let's turn to the metro, still on this, boris johnson supposedly raising his glass to today's news. the question is though, can he take the seats? welcome of course. because the brexit party have indicated
10:49 pm
effectively that they are not going to help the tories lose their current seats, but equally, they are going to still be really annoying and obstructed for the tories hopes of gaining more seats, and given that they do need as you say 9—10, a good few dozen to actually clench a clear majority without having to rely on the dop yet again, they need to window seats. they are competing in all sorts of areas, labour health, like kensington, which labour clung onto with a majority of about 20, and bigger majorities even then. so the brexit party could still spoil the attempts to window sorts of seats. so that is why what's really interesting, i would say, is watching jeremy corbyn's reaction, how he is trying to get the labour voters on his side, because he's acknowledged it and called it a trump alliance in reference to donald trump telling nigel farage on his own talk show that, you know, you guys should get together, it would be great, you would be unstoppable, and obviously, he is —— it's a unilateral leave
10:50 pm
alliance, and at the same time, or what's been a very interesting been is that the brexit party being so nice and nonaggressive to the tories, it's helping jeremy corbyn effectively say, they are basically the turquoise tories. they are the same thing. it's a curious to see if that holds for labour voters. when mixing sienna, let's turn to the daily telegraph, this is our final front page. on this very story. how much do you think this is not going to come down to tactical voting, i mean, does it still water down the leave vote ? mean, does it still water down the leave vote? yeah, i mean, we have seen over recent leave vote? yeah, i mean, we have seen over recent elections more and more voters are being more engaged in tactical voting, we are seeing lots of tactical voting sites p°ppin9 lots of tactical voting sites p°pping up lots of tactical voting sites popping up all over the place recently, and actually, those have been very controversial as well. they have been talking about, you know, recommending some of those sites to lib dem, were actually lib dems are far behind, so there are
10:51 pm
lots of controversy over whether to look at european elections in may, those results, or the last general election. of course, lots have changed since 2017, but at the same time, a european election can be mapped onto a general election. an example actually one of these seats, because everybody is now looking at which of the labour seats are viable. nigel farage tonight was, or this evening, was in centre field. centrefield is an interesting case, because they voted around 59—60% to leave, it is held by labour, former tony blair seat. however, the mp there has said he is remain. you know, that is one to lose, isn't it, for the brexit party? yes, it's an interesting one, because yes, philip wilson and peter, you know, those labour mps have been very vocal, com pletely labour mps have been very vocal, completely unashamed in their support for another referendum, and
10:52 pm
for remaining in that referendum. unlikejeremy for remaining in that referendum. unlike jeremy corbyn, for remaining in that referendum. unlikejeremy corbyn, they're very to say now, i will campaign for remain, but actually they would argue that the labour code in their seats perhaps overrule their leave voting in 2016. but they would argue that some of that has changed, and actually the labour voters mostly voted remain, so perhaps it wont have so much of an effect as you might think. ok, stay with the telegraph. formersoldier might think. ok, stay with the telegraph. former soldier had been under un—imaginal pressure over worked in syria. we are talking here about james, who was found dead stop yes, real report on the mystery around his death, the former british army officer who was a key backer of the syrian white helmets in that you know, experts told us he was under all sorts of pressure, meanwhile, in istanbul, where it was said that the line is that he has had a fall, investigators are investigating the execs or to connect circumstances of
10:53 pm
what was an expected suicide, but it's too soon to say what happened, and obviously communicable the foreign offices bemoans the human tragedy and loss of this, it's a curious mystery given the people in and stamp camino, he was associating with some terrorists groups and suspicions like that. so he clearly was making enemies with the work he was doing. this is a rescue group, sienna, could i take it to the front of the ft, what did you make of this on the front, it looks like it's good news for british steel? it looks like it, i think trade unions are very cautiously welcoming this. they have said that basically they want to be cracking open the champagne just yet, because they just cracking open the champagne just yet, because theyjust want cracking open the champagne just yet, because they just want a cracking open the champagne just yet, because theyjust want a bit more security. they want the ink to be dry, basically. because there has been a few kind of forced dawns on this story, but it looks like it will give some security to come you know, the thousands of workers who will be effective. yes, a lot of
10:54 pm
concern over will be effective. yes, a lot of concern over the idea of chinese dumping cheap steel, where british steel fits in with the. given the impact that dumping his head on the market, the allegation seems credible, they were effectively able to buy a british steel, and run them down by sort of having cheap steel into the market. are you quoting? i may be. it's an allegation, it certainly with much verve, but at the same time, obviously one must remember that this is part of globalisation. the chinese firm being able to invest and buy out british firms if so need be. and we saw this, for example, with quality, and the idea of them may be being involved with 5g, the security around this. it's not been resolved yet, hasn't? it's ongoing. we see another firm which is buying a huge chunk of our steel sector, and so i'm sure there will be lots of scrutiny in this process. is at the question that it is a chinese firm, or is ita question that it is a chinese firm, or is it a question that the firm is
10:55 pm
possibly backed by the states, the chinese state, what would where you the most here? oh, gosh, well, it's with these big firms from china, they have links to the chinese state. so it comes you know, sort of hand in glove and those kinds of scenarios. but obviously, with huawei it was but the data being used, and now it's by purely business, and as the role that they are alluding to a chinese steel dumping, then they may say it's all rather convenient then, given the role that they've had. let'sjust end on a festive note. back to the telegraph. what would you be willing to give up for christmas very quickly, sienna? buying anyone any presence. as emma thompson suggests. asa presence. as emma thompson suggests. as a green master. just doing away with presents given, which, yeah, i'm all in favour, because i don't have time to do christmas shopping. i don't know about you. this would suit you then. yeah, definitely. cards, that's very sad, i remember i
10:56 pm
ama cards, that's very sad, i remember i am a traditionalist, and i remain proudly unwelcome about christmas. i still write christmas card lists. those who write back to me, they still remain on that. i'm very careful with my time. just very quickly, would you hire or rent a christmas story, because this is one of the suggestions in this article. this is what i'm saying, renting it from a warehouse of christmas trees. can you imagine? back to the forest. if you are renting, to share it with someone else. thank you very much, sienna, back again at 11:30pm looking forward to that and looking forward to having you with us as well. in the meantime, all of the papers are online. thank you to asa and sienna, and we'll all be back for that second review in around a0 minutes. goodbye. good evening. the weather has been pretty relentless so far this november, hasn't it? but i'm pleased to say there was a pause for thought for many of the remembrance services taking place on sunday and monday. colder for many, but with some dry,
10:57 pm
settled, sunny weather. now, one of the many reasons it's colder is that we are sitting to the north of the jet stream at the moment. there is the uk, you see quite clearly, as the jet dives down over into europe. but low pressure never too far away, which means that things are likely to stay pretty unsettled for the next few days. we get one low pressure moving away, it will then be replaced by another. so certainly for the next few days, there's further spells of rain to look out for. and because it stays quite cold, there will be some hill snow as well. this has been the story for the last few hours, today. plenty of sharp showers driven in by gusty winds through scotland, northern ireland, northwest england, one—two along west facing costs. now, though showers are likely to continue up into the north, spiralling around that low that's drifting off into the north sea. elsewhere, there will be some clearer skies and a few isolated showers. will be a chilly night. low single figures, perhaps quite widely across the country. so we start off tomorrow with the best of any dryer weather, perhaps into the south,
10:58 pm
but as we go through the morning, those outbreaks of showers, will drift their way slowly southwards. lighter winds, perhaps, than monday, but that means that some of those showers could be pretty slow moving command some of them intends with some hail mixed in there as well. but, if you dodge the showers, keep the sunshine, well, those temperatures still struggling, 5—10 degrees at the very best. now, as we move it up tuesday evening into the night, we will see this little ridge of high pressure building, a quiter spell of weather for a time, that will allow temperatures to fall away, possibly frost and fog in its central eastern areas on wednesday, it's not going to last. the clouds thickens, the next low pushes in, and it will bring a spell of heavy rain into the southwest of england, moving up through the midlands and into northern ireland. now, just where this frontal system is going to sit during much of thursday is still subject to question. it could be a little bit further north, it could be a little bit further south, and that obviously has an impact on those areas that have been affected by the flooding. so keep abreast to the forecast over the next few days, don't forget,
10:59 pm
flood warnings can always be found on the bbc weather website. take care.
11:00 pm
this is bbc news. i'm lu kwesa burack. the headlines at 11. nigel farage gives in to pressure from fellow brexiteers and says his brexit party will not stand in tory held seats. the brexit party will not contest the 317 seats that the conservatives won the last election. however what we will do is concentrate our total effort into all of the seats that are held by the labour party. a chinese firm confirms a rescue deal for british steel — buying it for 70 million and saving 4000 jobs in scunthorpe and teesside. it has been a big concern, nobody knowing what would happen and whether they would have a job to pay their
