a re are watching a bbc news special. you are watching a bbc news special. we are focusing on the vote in the house of commons which went against the government again today. let's ta ke the government again today. let's take a step back and talk about next week. it really depends on the speaker of the house. what he decides to do. the government seems intent on bringing a forth meaningful vote back on monday. this speculation coming from what was said earlier, the government will seem to bring back... bring back, improve the withdrawal agreements force trondsen negotiate with brussels last week. this would be quite straightforward, they would simply ask mps to lend quite straightforward, they would simply ask mps to [end it it's the board. another hurdle from the government came from the speaker
6:31 pm
john bercow, who said he would have to ta ke john bercow, who said he would have to take tomorrow to think whether he would allow the government to bring this back on monday. it's very possible he could rule it's civilly not permissible and it is not poly measure procedure to bring the same motion back twice. lower -- laura —— laura hutchinson, thank you very much bring us your thoughts. you are watching us live in westminster here. let's get a quick look at the headlines. the i —— ayes to the right, 322, the noes to the left about 306. mps passed an amendment witholding approval of boris johnson's deal until it becomes law. that means there'll be no vote on the prime minister's deal today. i will not negotiate a deal with the eu. it's an emphatic decision by this
6:32 pm
house that it has declined to back the prime minister's deal today, and clearly voted to stop a no—deal crash out. outside parliament, anti—brexit demonstrators cheered as they heard about the delay. the "people's vote" second referendum campaign have held a huge rally in central london today. the european commission's chief spokesperson urged the government "to inform us about the next steps as soon as possible". well, away from parliament, the people's vote campaign has been holding a mass demonstration not far away from here. dan johnson has been in parliament square for us. there have been thousands of people out on the streets of london today, and perfectly concentrated in parliament square. things are just breaking up now. it's been a huge crowd here with the message they
6:33 pm
wa nt crowd here with the message they want a second referendum or a people's vote. a couple people who we re people's vote. a couple people who were in the crowd have come to london from devon. you are originally dutch, crystal. tell me what this is about for you. we need to get out of this, and the only way out is to remain. and in order to say we want to remain, we need a second vote. what is wrong with getting it done? the only go that's on the table that is really worth considering is what we have now, so we wa nt considering is what we have now, so we want to remain, but we have to be asked the question, and this is a democracy, right? this is the oldest democracy, right? this is the oldest democracy in the world, as i have been told. i even learned it in the netherlands. obviously, they have to ask the people what do you want? now! but you know people argue, that's what happened three years ago, and people to mechanically voted to leave. based on lies and deceit. that's what you believe?
6:34 pm
it's a matter of fact, isn't it? it's a matter of fact, isn't it? it's proven fact. michael has some dine said self also he is not someone dine said self also he is not someone july. —— michael has an dine. he is a liar. he is a lawbreaker. he threatened to break again today after losing the vote. is that what you to say to 17.4 million people, though, they believed the lie? they believed the lie. you know, lots of people find that very offensive. people find things offensive in the world. johnson is the 20th prime minister coming from eton. it is extraordinary. we should do better than this. members of parliament
6:35 pm
seem than this. members of parliament seem to think it is a big deal to vote country first and themselves last, but it should always be the case. they are not worthy to be therefore we deserve better. another referendum. yes, please. what if the decision again was leave. it is a democracy. all the polls, consistently, have pointed towards a 60% majority. there were young people... i live here, i cannot vote. look at the scott's. i loved all the discussions going on between people, what are you going to what? why? that's what we need to do. we have to heal this country by having a proper discourse! it is not happening. because these guys are aiming forsome happening. because these guys are aiming for some personal benefit that we cannot even understand. i tried to understand. ijust have not
6:36 pm
figured it out yet. i can only think what camilla cabello says, there is something is going on that we are a lwa ys something is going on that we are always one step behind. there is some technology going on from a facebook. you don't even know what people are seeing... we've got to leave it there. thank you. you get the strength of feeling, the determination, people saying they wa nt determination, people saying they want a second referendum, a people's vote. i think it's also true most people want to use that to stop brexit come cancel this process. danjohnson dan johnson there at danjohnson there at parliament square. quite a march. past downing street down into parliament square. still a number of them, as you can hear, on the barricades this evening, helping us along as they normally do. the shadow foreign secretary emily thornberry was speaking at the people's vote march earlier.
6:37 pm
let's take a listen to what she had to say. the truth is that it should not be for a handful of mps to decide on this incredibly important issue. it should be the people who decide. cheering if boruc cheering if borchohnson is so pleased with his deal, if you really think this is what is best for our country, put it back to the people. emily thornberry, the shadow foreign secretary there, speaking to the people's vote. with me is former downing street director of communications, alastair campbell — who was at the people's vote rally. and also the vice president of the european permanent. thank you to you both. how's the people in london today calling for a people's vote. how are you going to get there? when you look back to the first people's vote, mps showing up in the back of a cab. there is massive momentum.
6:38 pm
the good thing about it, it showed whatever happens in parliaments, there are millions of people out there are millions of people out there who are just really determined to keep fighting for a referendum. as you know, the only people who can decide to give a referendum is parliament, and we will have to see next week whether anything emerges that allows an amendment that allows us that allows an amendment that allows us to get that, and we'll see what the numbers are then. i agree that at the moment, it might look tricky but this whole saga, there have been so but this whole saga, there have been so many ups and downs, i think we are still fighting, still in the game. looking at it tactically, there are number on the front bench who want a second vote before an election because they want to fight on the basis of brexit rather than fightan on the basis of brexit rather than fight an election on brexit. but it seems to bejeremy corbyn does not wa nt seems to bejeremy corbyn does not want that. he wants the election first. it was very interesting today. we had john mcdonnell there, diane abbott, keir starmer, and
6:39 pm
emily thornberry, you just heard from. iam emily thornberry, you just heard from. i am not emily thornberry, you just heard from. iam notjeremy emily thornberry, you just heard from. i am notjeremy corbyn's biggest fans, but i do not think his vision on brexit is that crazy come in that he is so saying he is trying to get a referendum. he is talking there about a labour in government. we are not now in government. the conservatives are in government, and this is about on the basis of what is happening now with the deal that actually exists, borisjohnson's deal. parliament actually saying, we have got brexit, we know what remain looks like, that is the other option and we put that back to the people. i know the argument is going on inside the labour party. but i really do think that ultimately come of this, the division and the noise and the nastiness and all the rest of it, i think we are not talking about the resource options, and i think the least worst option is that deal goes back to the country and, do you still want brexit on now we know or do you want to stay? we've got to spend the next few days
6:40 pm
persuading more mps to go down that road. meanwhile, across the channel, europa will be watching. we have a broad statement tonight that they will not be discussing an extension yet. what will they be making of what we have seen in parliament? we had anticipated that the deal would be voted through, so i think everybody is not just try to take stock. there is no point in overreacting or even giving any reaction on till we know if there is a letter sent and what is in that particular letter. i still would say the uncertainty for everybody is quite frightening, the atmosphere, you can feel the tension here this evening. i don't think that's good for anybody. the european union cannot get involved in what is happening in the house of commons. that is not our political business. that is not our political business. that is not our political business. that is for the deputies who are elected and indeed those who campaigned for various sides. from a european point of view, we are beginning to need certainty because
6:41 pm
there's so many issues that europe has to deal with. brexit has been there for three years now. we have had one deal that was rejected and we now have another deal, and we had hoped and anticipated that it might get through the house of commons today, but i think we should not predict what is going to happen next. things may work out next week. perhaps not in the way you might like them to, but this is the way it has to proceed because the european union at this stage respectfully the outcome of the referendum, has been listening to all of the arguments, we need a divorce settlement and we need to talk about the future. we have a deal that does both and there is various comments about whether, the comments on that deal. the dup are interesting on this tonight, because neither —— nigel dodds have told the sun that he is going to vote for a amendment. if the bill comes back, the government could lose brexit
6:42 pm
altogether. what i thought was really interesting is, you could sense the real anger of the unionist mps, and actively understand that. i really do. in march, we played a film showing tony blair and john major, the peace process, and how they really worried about what this dealfor they really worried about what this deal for them, they really worried about what this dealfor them, what it they really worried about what this deal for them, what it does. they really worried about what this dealfor them, what it does. you they really worried about what this deal for them, what it does. you are right that the hard border on the island of ireland is taken care of, but the border on the irish sea, that will have complicated and full we have be wary of that. i have seen, not least when we were doing the good friday agreement, what younes anger looks like, and i think you saw... i think i would not be surprised if they went the whole way. i hope they do. just stepping back from a people's vote, do you really think it's agreement respect the good friday agreement? you are
6:43 pm
so the good friday agreement? you are so involved in the good friday agreement. doesn't meet the terms of belfast agreement?” agreement. doesn't meet the terms of belfast agreement? i think it does not. the whole point of the belfast agreement, good friday agreement, was this balance maintain them and i think that they... you saw the way, sylvia hermon, and others, questions they were asking. my sense is neitherjohnson nor stephen barclay wa nted neitherjohnson nor stephen barclay wanted to answer them. there are real problems i had with it. i think generally, about the whole debate, it's purse —— proceeded in the last three years with not a contempt for northern ireland but the real sense of cavalier disinterest in the consequences and , so cavalier disinterest in the consequences and, so i do worry and i think that in terms of the politics of next week, i could see,
6:44 pm
really see... we have talked about this. the dup, if we don't get a say going into the agreement and we don't have a veto to come out of it, boo you told me next week they were never going to get in individual veto. this is the intricacies of northern ireland which were not thought about from those who voted to leave, and i would have simply... i would say to them they need to be really careful because northern ireland, the piece is there but it's fragile, and weed to be conscious of that. all of us need to be careful of it. the negotiators looked carefully at this because the last deal was rejected, the uk backstop, so deal was rejected, the uk backstop, so this is a new mechanism which allows for a democratic decision of the elected members in northern ireland. there is a democracy for the dup. thank you very much indeed.
6:45 pm
you have been watching a bbc news special here in westminster. we will be here through the night. do you stay with us. hello and welcome to sportsday. i'm lizzie greenwood—hughes. the headlines tonight: england book their place in the semi—finals of the rugby world cu p after co mforta bly beating australia. they now face the holders — new zealand — who crushed ireland's hopes with a 7—try thrashing. and an fa cup qualifying game is abandoned after alleged racist abuse towards a goalkeeper.
6:46 pm
so, lots to get through in a shortened saturday sportsday for you. and we're starting injapan where earlier, england's rugby union side put—in one of their best ever world cup performances to comfortably beat australia 40—16 and reach the semi—finals of the tournament for the first time in 12 years. our sports editor dan roan was watching in oita. their world cup's taking time to gather pace, but here in oita a defining moment for england had arrived. one of rugby's great rivalries about to resume. england had beaten australia six times in a row, but this was the one that really mattered, and jonny may gave his side the perfect start. they weren't finished there. the recalled henry slade with the interception. he may not have had the pace, but he certainly had the vision, finding may for his second try
6:47 pm
injust three minutes. captain owen farrell back in form again to extend his side's lead. thanks to the kicking of christian lealiifano, australia were still in contention, however, and straight after the break, marika koroibete's blistering pace reduced the deficit tojust a point. but england's threat came from all positions. the power of prop kyle sinclair proving unstoppable, as they reasserted control. thanks to some magnificent defence and owen farrell's boot, they never looked like relinquishing it. anthony watson's rate interception try sealing a hard—fought but ultimately convincing victory. england through, then, to a first semifinal for 12 years, and by a scoreline that will make their rivals sit up and take notice. if england wanted to put down a real marker at this world cup, well, they've just done it. that was one of their great wins, certainly the most important of coach eddiejones' tenure. the rfu had set him a minimum target
6:48 pm
of reaching the last four. now his team have achieved that in such a fashion they'll believe they can go all the way. dan roan, bbc news, oita. england will play new zealand next after the all blacks beat ireland in tokyo. they ran in seven tries in a convincing 46 to 14 win. our sports correspondent andy swiss was there. for ireland, it was time to face rugby‘s ultimate challenge. new zealand are the champions, for many the favourites, and this was a night when they showed exactly why. as ireland's hopes were dazzlingly destroyed. two early tries for aaron smith, and by the time beauden barrett raced clear, his team are also out of sight. 22—0 at the break. dame shirley over. game surely over. after that, it was damage limitation for ireland, and while robbie henshaw finally
6:49 pm
broke their duck, it was suitably the all blacks, and beauden's brotherjordie barrett that had the final say. they'll take some stopping. for ireland, it was the end of an era. the final games for coach joe schmidt and skipper rory best, hardly the exits they'd have wanted. look, the all blacks were fantastic tonight. look, i've loved every minute of it. my team—mates, the coaching staff, and probably in particularjoe as well who is moving on. i think he brought irish rugby and probably my game in particular to a different level when he came here. so once again, ireland head home at the quarterfinals. remember, they'd come into this tournament as the world number ones, but their hopes have ended in more disappointment. andy swiss, bbc news, tokyo. wales are in quarter—final action tomorrow morning, and they'll be at full strength when they face france. coach warren gatland has named the same team that beat georgia and australia in the pool stages.
6:50 pm
wales have won seven of their last eight games against france — including a 24—19 victory in paris in february en route to the grand slam. and wingerjosh adams says having the tag of favourites is something his teammates will relish. they said we are favourites going into australia game. that was a tag we don't mind having. we work hard to earn a tag of being one of the best teens, and if teams want to pick us as favourites, that's fine. 0h pick us as favourites, that's fine. oh we go about our business like we do. we know it needs to be done and we are all focused on doing that. now, with the ugly scenes of racism at england's european qualifying match in bulgaria still fresh in the mind, today, there was an incident here in the fa cup which resulted in a game being abandoned. haringay borough were playing yeovil town in the fourth qualifying round of this year's fa cup when haringay‘s goal keeper was allegedly racially abused. well, we can hearfrom the bbc‘s
6:51 pm
chris spittles, who was at the game. thank you forjoining us. tell exactly what happened the. thank you forjoining us. tell exactly what happened them thank you forjoining us. tell exactly what happened the. it was midway through the second half, the oval —— yeovil town awarded a penalty. there was a stoppage, it lasted about five minutes, yeovil town score the penalty. there were bottles thrown on the pitch and actually come in the police this evening have interviewed three haringay players who alleged racist abuse took place, the game did not really start off after that penalty was scored. the players, the haringay players, were taken off by their managers. and also with consultation with their coaches and manager, the yeovil town players, it was agreed by them all that the gig would not restart because what had gone on. what is going to happen
6:52 pm
now? do we think the matches could be replayed? the fa is going to have to investigated. i don't think there isa to investigated. i don't think there is a president for this, again being stops in this manner. i think the game should be replayed but the fa now have got a lot of investigation to do and, as i say come in the police have been involved as well this evening. 0k, chris spittles there this evening. the fa have released a statement saying they are deeply concerned about what has happened, and they will investigate what has happened. well, this is what the haringay manager tom loizou had to say after the game was abandoned. it was disgusting to them. my goal keeper had a bottle thrown him. my number six got called names, he got racially abused, and there was no way i could let things continue. the
6:53 pm
referee was trained to call things down. the yeovil town laser try to calm them down, our players were trying to calm things down, and in the end, i told my players to get off the pitch. let's move on to today's football and the premier league is back after the international break. liverpool play tomorrow. but the break hasn't helped tottenham, whose miserable form continued with a 1—1 draw at home to bottom side watford. it does nothing to relieve the pressure on tottenham's manager mauricio pochettino, who made 7 changes to his side for the game. watford scored afterjust 6 minutes through abdoulaye doucoure. and spurs only managed to rescue a point thanks to a late equaliser from dele alli. the only way that we are going to improve the record is working hard. it's only football programmes we need to improve. the goal we concede, after a tough night in champions league, difficult for any
6:54 pm
team, this time things happen. you need to play after with the column you need. chelsea have moved—up to third in the table after a 1—0 win over newcastle at stamford bridge. full—back marcos alonso scored late in the second—half. it's a fifth straight win for frank lampard's side in all competitions. there was relief all round at goodison park after everton had their first win in 5 league games, beating west ham 2—0 in the early kick off. michael redford was watching this one for us. an era of discontent has been growing around goodison park of late, for successive league defeat leaving everton in the relegation zone. in must win matches, you must ta ke zone. in must win matches, you must take your chances. tom davies left wondering how roberto left is out. bernard are with a twist and a turn before producing a tight finish. they nearly had a second before half—time, beating roberto not be
6:55 pm
the post. he did find the natural after the break. only this time denied by the offside flag. everton's frustration are growing. alex iwobi could not beat roberto. mina bid both come only for a file in the builder. west ham's chances we re rare in the builder. west ham's chances were rare but they nearly stashed a point. jordan pickford with the say. there would be a second goal and it was worth the wait. gylfi sigurdsson security when. it is good to see our reaction. it is good to see we are enjoying football. even if you are not in our best moment, the last results. and the wind moves everton out of the bottom three, and silva and his team are smiling once again. michael redford, bbc news. so here are the rest of the day's premier league results. leicester are up to second in the table with a 2—1
6:56 pm
win over burnley. the win for aston villa, the rest we re the win for aston villa, the rest were dross. manchester city leading crystal palace, 25 minute left in that match. then tomorrow, all eyes will be on old trafford, where manchester united play leaders liverpool. celtic are back on top of the scottish premiership after thrashing ross county 6—0 today. celtic have a one—point lead over rangers, who play hearts tomorrow. in the other games, there were wins for kilmarnock, aberdeen and st mirren. andy murray's remarkable comeback continues — he's through to his first tour final for two and a half years. murray was playing ugo humbert in the semi—finals of the european open. the three—time grand slam champion is currently ranked number 243 in the world after his long lay off following major hip surgery. and he had to come from a set down against humbert in antwerp to eventually win 4-6, 7-5, 6-2. he'll play stan wawrinka in the final tomorrow. that's all from sportsday. we will have another update for you
6:57 pm
and our‘s time. —— in an hour's time. for now, bye—bye. good evening. many of us have been plainly whether lottery today, a few isolated showers, just like this weather watcher pictures sent in from london. others, it's been great, wet and pretty dismal. the scottish border, we got a couple of flood alerts out due to the intensity of the rainfall that's been stubbornly sitting across the scottish borders for much of the day and also into the northeast of england. a few scattered showers further west and some of these have filtered and then as we have gone through the afternoon. behind that weather front, some strong winds as well. they will continue to drive in some showers overnight, but that weather front will start to weaken and ease its way off into the north sea. some clever skies overnight, lecture winds, temperatures likely to fall away. we could see
6:58 pm
temperatures low enough for a touch of frost. maybe some early morning mist and fog around first thing. we start off tomorrow, a quiet day, the re m na nts of start off tomorrow, a quiet day, the remnants of the weather fronts not producing that much in the way of rain but certainly a lot more in the way of cloud around and northerly wind will drive in a few showers close to the coast. but it will be a drier day in comparison to today, and certainly in comparison to the last couple of days. just that little bit cooler, 9—14 e—. we have been promising in this area of high—pressure building in from the atla ntic high—pressure building in from the atlantic at the start of the new working week. it is there. but there is this little level of uncertainty as to whether we will see some rain in that southeast corner on monday, need to keep a closer eye on that. could be a bit of a flight in the lookman. but for the bulk of the country, it will be a dry and settled start to our working with with some sunny spells coming through and temperatures again at around 9—14d. it does look as though
6:59 pm
that settled theme is set to continue tuesday into wednesday as well, the high—pressure drifting slowly southwards and allow this weather fronts to topple across the top of the site. the winds strengthening. elsewhere on tuesday, it isa strengthening. elsewhere on tuesday, it is a dry, settled story after a chilly start and then with a south—westerly flow, temperatures may well recover to heights of 11 to 15 degrees. monday into tuesday, again, a good deal of dry weather in the forecast. enjoy your weekend.
7:00 pm
intent on bringing a forth meaningful vote back on monday. you're watching a bbc news special live from westminster, where members of parliament have forced the british prime minister to ask for a delay to brexit. the ayes to the right, 322. the noes to the left, 306. mps passed an amendment witholding approval of boris johnson's deal until it becomes law. as a result there has been no vote today on the prime minister's deal. i will not negotiate a delay with the eu. this emphatic decision by this house to not back the prime minister's deal today, and clearly voted to stop a
