tv The Papers BBC News October 23, 2019 11:30pm-12:00am BST
set the clocks back and a change in the weather. finally the front will pull away into the continent and the pressure builds and from the west and it will like to stay into next week. it will also introduce some chillier air with a northerly airstream. a change and a tunnel weather, and a crisper and chillier condition then overnight frosts. sunday we should see some decent spells of sunshine across the uk but it will feel cooler with top temperatures at 11 or 12 degrees. i think quite an extensive frost as we go to the early part of monday. for next week, quite a significant change to what we have had, a dryer story for the coming day and it will feel different as well. here we go, sunday into monday and the area of high pressure extending across the uk and one thing we are watching closely as the low to the south,
just some uncertainty that may over run into this i think most metres of the uk and bring some rainfall and at the moment we are favouring high pressure dominating the story but first thing on monday, the widespread frost and high pressure in place, and plenty of sunshine as the mic into the days ahead and look out for some chillier months. hello. this is bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment — first the headlines. essex police are investigating the deaths of 39 people whose bodies were found in a lorry container.
this matter has attracted national and international interest and it is absolutely imperative that the operation is conducted with the utmost respect for the 39 people who have lost their lives. the lorry driver has been arrested on suspicion of murder. he's been named locally as 25—year—old mo robinson from the portadown area of county armagh in northern ireland. the prime minister goes to meet the labour leader to try to agree a timetable for a brexit deal after mps backed the plan, but rejected the three—day limit on debate. president trump announces he will now lift the sanctions he imposed on turkey following its military action against the syrian kurds. republican lawmakers in the us have disrupted the democrat—led trump impeachment inquiry, as a senior pentagon specialist was about to testify behind closed doors. racism on campus — universities
are told by the equality and human rights commission they've done too little to tackle it. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are financial times political correspondent, laura hughes and eve pollard, the broadcaster and former editor of the sunday mirror and the sunday express. thank you for coming back, we will chat any moment. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the telegraph leads on the 39 bodies found inside a lorry in essex earlier. it says an irish people—smuggling ring is being investigated. the guardian says police are still working to identify the bodies. an image of the northern irish haulier, mo robinson,
is on the front of the times. he's currently being questioned by police. claims that ministers were warned that criminals had switched to using the port of purfleet for smuggling, is the daily mail's headline. the metro carries an image of the lorry, and points out that the cab had a sticker saying — "the ultimate dream" in its window. brexit is the focus of the express — it says that borisjohnson has accused jeremy corbyn of putting the country's fate in the hands of the eu. and the office—space provider wework cutting 4,000 jobs is the ft‘s lead — as the company looks to focus on us, european and japanese markets. those are the front pages, let's start off and it's just that horrific story, the lead for the
daily mirror. it is a really dramatic front page that they have put together ahead of tomorrow. it was a huge story today, one of the most horrendous stories we have seen ina long most horrendous stories we have seen in a long time, the biggest murder investigation since 7/7 has been launched. we still don't know the details where it originated or the nationalities the victims, so there are nationalities the victims, so there a re lots of nationalities the victims, so there are lots of questions as to how this happened and there will be lots of work going on between belgian authorities and northern irish authorities and northern irish authorities and northern irish authorities and authorities here to try to work out who is behind this and to get to the bottom of who is responsible. priti patel the home secretary today talking about toughening up sentences for those found guilty of trafficking humans in this way, and it is a horrendous story in this front page actually does justice to how traumatic it would have been. it really
demonstrates how desperate a lot of those people were. it certainly doesn't depart from actually saying very clearly, the strongest front page of today, i think it is very worrying that apparently there was a very respected lawyer on television earlier today who said it is actually very hard to catch human traffickers because people who have been taken from whichever country, they are usually too scared to point they are usually too scared to point the finger, because there is somebody back home who might be very badly treated. i think the other terrifying thing in this situation is these people may well not have come in with passports because not having a passport means you could have come from almost anywhere and it may be very hard. very hard to discover where they came from. and
of course they pay a lot, they pay something like 10,000 to get over here, and the daily mail front page is, why were warnings ignored? apparently three years ago this exact similar situation except thank heaven is not with people dying but with people coming in obviously and very cold, but not refrigerated. this lorry today was refrigerated. obviously in a very bad way coming in and being trafficked, but of course people want to escape and come here for all the reasons we know, and it is very hard apparently to catch the traffickers who are doing such an eviljob, and they go to the slightly out of the way ports because there is less attraction, less people looking. the point was made today that you will never stop the movement of people. it has been going on for centuries and it will
continue. the problem is how to manage it. i think that is true but also i think technology will take over because we saw a very interesting over because we saw a very interesting programme on the bbc about when they were discussing the border between northern ireland and ireland and between norway and sweden there is an x—ray machine and you can tell exactly what is in the truck. i am afraid to say that is what is going to end up happening all over the west. it is probably very expensive, but it is true you're never going stop it. the financial times kicking off our brexit coverage. borisjohnson muddied by tory split over whether to chase brexit our election. what did you make of the images of boris johnson and jeremy corbyn walking side by side after the weekend?m looked very stiff. often you watch
people walking into, for example, the queen's speech, and you know people who may well be politically at each other's throats, they are talking about the grandchildren or the footballer about something. these two cannot manage that. neitherjeremy corbyn nor boris johnson, i think knows exactly what they are going to do or what their next steps are, but there is division within the conservative party and within cabinet and even within downing street as to what the prime minister should do next, when we know exactly how long the eu are prepared to give us an extension to article 50. we expect to know on friday and it will probably be until the end of january, friday and it will probably be until the end ofjanuary, possibly friday and it will probably be until the end of january, possibly they can reduce that if the deal gets through parliament, so the question is, does the prime minister try again to push this through parliament? does he have serious conversations with labour about a new programme motion in the time
available to parliament to scrutinise the deal? that is why it was rejected, because mps wanted more time, or do you go straight for an election? there are splits because some say the conservative might do 0k going into election because you can turn around and say parliament frustrated this, we had a deal and they threw it out and didn't agree with my terms, but others say, yes, you have the brexit party and the threat of the liberal democrats and without brexit being delivered but is harderfor democrats and without brexit being delivered but is harder for boris johnson. what he would like potentially is to be able to get this through as something he can, maybe a ten day extension beyond 3ist maybe a ten day extension beyond 31st october, and then go into election on a higher having eradicated the threat of the brexit party and liberal democrats are promising a second referendum. that might not be needed if a deal is passed. it is really unclear and unclear as to whether or not the labour party were let borisjohnson have the election that he wants.
they might try and resist that. of course, the times says that boris johnson is poised for election as the eu wrangles over an extension. emmanuel macron seems to want a short period but he has on some island miles away somewhere exotic and he is not back until friday, and of course the prime minister had to write and ask for an extension in the end of that extension isjanuary 31. the interesting thing is, there are a lot of people saying get on with an election because we will never get brexit through the house of commons, because there are so many people pretending to go along with the idea of brexit when all they want to do, and the liberal democrats are very clear. why are they going along? you have the snp who are longing for an election because they think it will lead to them having a vote for independence next year, so they would like an
election. the lib dems, some of them are thinking they might do quite well out of the situation. remember, every political party is polling. the sad thing is none of us own a polling company because they are going to be very busy. but do you trust the polls? interestingly, i was an trust the polls? interestingly, i was an editor so long ago that people used to go to houses and knock on the door, and we got accurate results. i could forecast in the sunday express that john major was going to win the election, which nobody thought he was. i am not sure that something coming up on your computer, you don't just not sure that something coming up on your computer, you don'tjust whine it away or fill in silly answers. who knows? that is what is going to be done by all the parties, i think, very much over the next few days. be done by all the parties, i think, very much over the next few daysm seems as if the only people unified are the eu right now? and the snp.
but if we go down the route of the election, isn't it going to be fascinating to look at turnout numbers and a cross—section of the population and how they vote, because we have a new group of people who are ready to vote that weren't allowed to vote in the last election. but then again, it depends. are they going to vote after a brexit deal is agreed in the commons are without a deal having been agreed. not all young people think the same. on the other hand, will you be dragging out the very old lady hoping they vote... do you think they will come out?|j old lady hoping they vote... do you think they will come out? i don't know. there is fatigue, let's be honest, for brexit, but then i think people will realise it is a very historically important election and people probably will vote. on the other hand, if they're going to have it between now and christmas, let's hope it doesn't snow. that is
another, people genuinely have concerns about the time of year that we potentially would have an election, because of the weather. who is going to want to go out and knock on doors and are you going to wa nt to a nswer knock on doors and are you going to want to answer your door in the night? and labour think that actually it benefits the tories to have an election at this time of the year because they think fewer labour voters are able to go out and have ca rs voters are able to go out and have cars and vote. they send like small issues but these are the considerations that people have. issues but these are the considerations that people havem is true that there are a whole lot of people who are perhaps not bored by brexit who are young, but it is interesting. you watch question time and they are light and the young face and you think it will be somebody who wants to remain in the opposite is true. itjust depends how the country feels and what else is going on. it is quite a risky game they are having to weigh up. let's turn to the sun and charles furious at harry bust stop. you're keen to cover this? may i say, i was
only keen because we know that this is what interests people, human stories interest people and everybody has got a family and a family that occasionally has bust ups. how much of this is true i do not know. i do know that the queen has managed brilliantly for 94 years, don't complain, don't explain, and this does seem like some sort of crisis certainly between prince harry and the duchess of sussex and the rest of the royals. how deep it goes, how strong it is. my feeling about them as they have isolated themselves, and it is very lovely, i am sure, have isolated themselves, and it is very lovely, lam sure, i have never been inside it, frogmore cottage. it is beautiful but it is miles away from anywhere. being alone with a new baby, even with a doctor and a
nurse and nanny on hand, it is quite isolating. and they are far away from everyday. they didn't go to balmoral in the summer and i think had they gone to bal morrow they might have found a sympathetic ear, a sympathetic voice. they seem as if they are in their own site hill, because i felt terribly sorry for both of them when i watch the documentary, and the trip had been a fantastic success and showed as the harry and meghan way of doing things, and when they say they are the only modernisers, i think the royal family every generation and during her majesties lifetime has changed a lot. they are doing this ina very changed a lot. they are doing this in a very subtle way and you can't suddenly change everything. i think they need to be part and parcel of they need to be part and parcel of the family and they need to say, look, this is what we want for us.
isn't it interesting that the tabloids have moved on to the fact that this is now a family bus stop, when actually it started off with the pressures of the tabloids and the pressures of the tabloids and the media? that is what meghan was complaining about, that she had no idea how british tabloids worked, that she had no idea... although i have to say american tabloids aren't that lovely either. we will find out because there is a coming trip. we will find out. we are going to go back to the times but to the inside, liberal attitudes on the rise unless you're having an affair... 0r politics! i mean, i am not too surprised that this because younger generations tend to have more potentially liberal views, and it is crediting this with the sort of baby boomers rising up, and it is
comparing it to 1989. exactly, and of course attitudes change and move but the figures here are really striking and it is a really detailed story, and it is pretty fascinating just to comparing such a short period of time how attitudes have com pletely period of time how attitudes have completely shifted. why is the exception extramarital affairs? they are a no—no apparently because they are a no—no apparently because they are a no—no apparently because they are a bad thing to do. i don't want to be cynical but the figures for extramarital affairs are quite high, sol extramarital affairs are quite high, so i assume that when you are in the middle of an extramarital affair you say they are appalling in public. i don't want to go any further! i think the feeling is amongst young people honesty is the best policy. i am not sure that's true but they will learn over time. they will learn! it is great that we have become a more liberal country. even
with brexit going on, do you think? that is its own little place on the mantelpiece. possibly about to topple off, who knows? i think that in people's daily lives people get used to mixing with all sorts of people and have got used to the fact there are gay couples, people have got used to the fact that certain people will have an abortion. i can remember being a very young child and when you went to oxford street, you got dressed up. can you imagine anything more ridiculous? my mother carried a pair of gloves and water handbag, a smart handbag. she didn't normally wear those things. people felt they had to dress up to go into big shops and now big shops are dying on their feet. and they are wearing a onesie! i found the brexit influence on here, managed to make
the story about brexit. the survey found that tolerance for one group in society has waned. in 1989, 30 6% of people thought politicians were good. now it is only 15%.ij of people thought politicians were good. now it is only 15%. iwonder why! surprise it is still that high. we are going to finish off, we are flying to the moon. city am. this is richard branson and for only 15.5 million, i don't how many tickets that gets you but it means that mac single or return! you can fly off on the virgin galactic spaceship to the moon and he will be able to have holidays in space and you will be able to have a lovely time floating around ina able to have a lovely time floating around in a onesie. we have been hearing about this and there has
been one trip out to the space station, is that right?|j been one trip out to the space station, is that right? i think they have been to the space station, but up have been to the space station, but up here are down here? do we know when it will kick—off properly?” up here are down here? do we know when it will kick-off properly? i am not getting a ticket, but he is floating his company on the new york stock exchange and tomorrow they are the first space travel company to go public. it is a big moment but i think it will be a long way off before we start sending people up. there are a lot of millionaires who are interested. elon musk. jeff bizos of amazon, all of them.|j are interested. elon musk. jeff bizos of amazon, all of them. i am happy to be here, terra firma. thank you laura hughes and eve pollard — goodbye. that's it for our edition of the papers, all the front pages are online on the bbc news website. you can also watch the programme back
via the bbc iplayer. but for now from all of us, have a very good night, cheerio. a round—up now of the top sports stories today. we will start in the champions league where liverpool ended our wretched away run in the champions league group stages winning 4—1 n genk. alex 0xlade—chamberlain with two fine strikes. the champions league holders posted five ballon d'or nominee is in the starting line—up to face genk. that might have been more had alex 0xlade—chamberlain not suffered an injury 18 months ago. on his long—awaited return to this competition, the englishman dazzled. he opened the scoring in less than two minutes. a bit of luck help that
in but nothing fortunate about his second. his perfect vision and touch was what turns the outcome of this match in liverpool's favour. until then they had struggled but the two—goal cushion allowed them to relax. slowing passing and clinical fishing returned for sadio mane and then most a la added to the score line. they relaxed a little too much allowing genk a consolation goal but it won't matter after finally ending a two—year run without an away win in the champions league group stages. liverpool are up to second in theirgroup, stages. liverpool are up to second in their group, chelsea are top of theirs after another fine away win but with a bit more tension attached in amsterdam. batshuayi came off the bench to score a late winner against ajax. a stadium named after footballing history but right now ajax are all about the talent of
their youth, just like chelsea. mason mount is one of the new kids on their blog, going close early on. five months ago ajax were minutes away from the final and some of that tea m away from the final and some of that team have moved on but this season they have found new leaders like vincent promise. in the right place at the right time but slightly soon, given offside, just. ajax soon in again, edson alvarez inches away from taking the lead in the visitors just needed an opening and they got one. they just missed just needed an opening and they got one. theyjust missed it. batshuayi blasting over the bar. chelsea's best chance gone, not quite. batshuayi had another and this time he wouldn't mess. a crucial away win for chelsea, probably frank lampard's best is the manager so far. the signs are good at the moment, the signs are good, but as i said to the players before the game,
five wins in arrow is really dangerous because it can make you sloppy and make you switch off and think everything is fine, six is even more dangerous so that is the message. the british number one is out of the swiss indoor tennis. he lost five straight games in the first set against taiafoe of the united states. he will now play the three—time grand slam winner stanislas wawrinka next. plenty more on the website including roaring michael wright pledging his allegiance to ireland for next yea r‘s allegiance to ireland for next year's 0lympics allegiance to ireland for next year's olympics and the youngest winner of an official golf ranking eventin winner of an official golf ranking event in the united arab emirates, but for the nds of the team, have a very good night. this is what we are longing for, some crisp autumn sunshine but we will not get it over the next few days with more wet weather and the
forecast however as we close out the month of october it doesn't close out the story will change. dry weather in the forecast and feeling chilly air by day and night. until then, these weather fronts squeezing together overnight across england and wales producing cloud and light patchy rain. low pressure drifting in from the north will enhance the strengthening winds and showers into the far north—west. a lot of cloud first thing in the morning, not as cold as the morning just passed what some patchy mist and fog first thing and some light there rain to clear its way south—east as well. the sky brighten and sunshine coming through, squally showers into the afternoon and gusty winds. top temperature 11—14 but into friday, we start to see the change. colder air kicking in and around the low pressure will move through scotland, northern ireland and northern
england and that the same time dragging up this warm air as the frontal system pushes and from the south—west. that will bring heavy and persistent rain across parts of england and wales and that the same time further north, circulating around that rash of showers, some turning increasingly wintry and still some gale force gusty winds about rain down towards the south is the real cause for concern as it moves its way through northern ireland, northern england and north wales. the dividing line between the colder air and the milder air down to the south. that front is still with us through friday night into saturday, slowly easing a way to the south—east by saturday afternoon but still could cause some issues. brighter conditions slowly following on behind. worth bearing in mind if you have travel plans across wales in north—western england friday into saturday. with 100 in north—western england friday into saturday. with100 millimetres of rain expected, it could cause some localised issues. keep tuned to your
welcome to newsday. i'm ben bland in london, the headlines... the search for answers — british police try to identify the 39 people found dead in the back of a lorry. it is imperative that the operation is conducted with the utmost respect for the 39 people who have lost their lives. president trump says he's dropping all sanctions against turkey, after ankara promised him its offensive against the kurds in syria was over. i'm rico hizon in singapore, also in the programme: republican lawmakers disrupt the trump impeachment inquiry — barging into a hearing room, moments before a senior pentagon
