11:30 pm
this is bbc news. i'm lewis vaughan—jones. our top stories: : rain, irain, and : rain, and the in the outbreaks of rain, and the stronger went down to the south—east, temperatures won't away so south—east, temperatures won't away so far. that wet and windy weather it's so sad, it's so sad. will gradually sink its way south eastwards during sunday. behind it scenes of grief in canada. as loved ones mourn those killed in the ukranian plane disaster, will all be in the fresher iran denies responsibility. the united states is slapping conditions, some sunshine to be had new sanctions on iran. the measures are aimed at vital sectors of the country's economy but some showers which could be and top—level leaders. wintry over the high ground of scotland. and you will notice a difference in temperatures but some sunshine to compensate on sunday. so next week while more unsettled conditions follow, i think we will we wa nt we want everyone to simply behave begin monday on a dry note but look like a normal nation. we believe what is waiting in the wings. that the sanctions we have imposed another area of low pressure, and today for that strategic objective. that will make inroads as we head to —— want iran. the day on monday. a bright start, sunshine on offer, not to drive it prepaing to leave their homes — the residents of a town in australia asa find they're in the path of a huge sunshine on offer, not to drive it as a day goes by to a crowd of the fire, as the country's crisis continues. and polls open in taiwan for the country's presidential west as the rain stops to move in. accompanied by strong winds, gales for some question areas through the day on monday. temperature wise there is —— they are a little above average for the time of year. we are sticking with the type —— sticking with that them as we had to do next
11:31 pm
week. our band of rain will continue its journey eastwards but then our attention turns to a developing area of low pressure. the exact track of this, while there is uncertainty at the moment, it does look as though many areas particularly the further issue i will get to a dry ‘s out but by the end of the day the rain will have moved into most areas, accompanied by strong winds. we could see gales or severe gales. some snow as well over the hills of scotla nd some snow as well over the hills of scotland but away from that, we're sticking with the mild them through tuesday. heading to wednesday we got a transient ridge of high pressure. that should allow us to take breath for a moment before the next with the system starts to push its way in through thursday. introducing wet and windy conditions once again. here is our undulating jetstream as we head to the latter stages of next week. it does look as though we could see a quieter spell as we approach the following weekend. so
11:32 pm
to sum up, looks at resting with the mild them so potentially disruptive winds at times with heavy rain but it could be turning a little dry as we head
11:33 pm
hello. this is bbc news with rachel schofield. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first, the headlines. sinn fein agreed to re—enter devolved government, meaning the stormont assembly will sit again tomorrow. i believe that power can work. that requires everyone to step up. sinn fein‘s commitment is to do all in our power to make this happen. we believe this is a firm, balanced deal. we believe it is a deal that can form the basis for allowing us to go back into government and to deal with all the difficult issues we need to deal with. vigils in canada for the victims of the ukrainian plane crash,
11:34 pm
as iran rejects claims that it shot it down. the home office has requested american anne sacoolas to be extradited to the uk over the death of teenager harry dunn. and the cheshire teenager helped during a seizure by his online gaming friend 5,000 miles away. hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the the political writer and academic, maya goodfellow, and political commentator and former tory advisor, jo—anne nadler. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the queen has been treated "shoddily" by the duke and duchess of sussex — that's according to a poll carried out by the daily mail. the mirror says the queen is fighting to end the harry and meghan crisis.
11:35 pm
a similar photo on the sun, it says her majesty looked grim—faced during a drive at sandringham earlier today. the express says she's ready to offer her grandson a deal that would let him continue to receive royal funding. meghan is pictured on the front of the times with one of her close friends. it says that palace aides deny that the sussexes are being driven out of the royal family. presenter samira ahmed is on the front of the guardian, after winning her equal pay case against the bbc. the i has a report on what it's calling a boost for arms manufacturers, amid the fresh tensions in the middle east. and the daily star says obsessive—compulsive disorder was causing birds of a feather star, linda robson, to take four baths a day. it seems to me one team coming
11:36 pm
through strongly has been covered through strongly has been covered through the back part of this week, but there is no less coverage. let's begin with the daily telegraph, a picture of the queen looking very serious there and the headline "queen wants a rift repaired in 72 hours". time is of the essence? it is ina it is in a lot of the front pages, the story about the royal family, but being reported in slightly different ways. this is one of their angles, really, the queen wants this resolved very quickly. this statement has been issued by meghan markle and harry about, obviously we all know the story, about their departure from the royal family. but the details of that have not been hammered out. it seems it isn't entirely clear what that will look like so this is really about them wanting to come to a swift agreement and the story in particular on the front of the telegraph is really trying to stress, at least from one source, but the queen is really calling the shots on this as well. yes, "let nobody be under any
11:37 pm
illusions, the queen is calling the shots". that is according to this source. queen is the one making the what do you think? that is almost certainly correct. what was also revealing in this article was the fa ct revealing in this article was the fact that apparently not only has prince harry not yet had the meeting that i believe he has earlier requested with the queen, but he has not even seen his brother or his father yet. in the not even seen his brother or his fatheryet. in the midst not even seen his brother or his father yet. in the midst of this, i hesitate to call it a crisis, but it isa hesitate to call it a crisis, but it is a crisis for the royal family. and that seems to be an interesting little personal detail. i must say, though, all these pictures of the queen and how they are being written up queen and how they are being written up about how she is frowning and looking terribly serious, this is a 93—year—old woman driving herself, which is in itself quite a good story, and, you know, she is somebody who has found, one, the hearts and minds and the admiration
11:38 pm
of the world, through sticking to her approach, which is never complained, never explain. so you wouldn't really expect her in this context to see her beaming from ear to earor context to see her beaming from ear to ear or frowning. i think she has a neutral expression. that is the expression she has an almost every scenario, i think, expression she has an almost every scenario, ithink, so expression she has an almost every scenario, i think, so to read too much into it is over egging it. one thing that struck me, it says, the queen told people to turn the crisis into an opportunity by producing a blueprint is not only for her grandson and his wife but future royal generations, including princess charlotte and prince lewis, as though this is looking towards the whole future vision of the royal family, notjust the whole future vision of the royal family, not just a the whole future vision of the royal family, notjust a scenario for harry and meghan?” family, notjust a scenario for harry and meghan? i think that is pa rt harry and meghan? i think that is part of the royal family is. it is an institution which tries to adapt and survive to the world around it. it also tries to change in certain ways. i am it also tries to change in certain ways. iam not it also tries to change in certain ways. i am not massively interested in the royal family, ways. i am not massively interested in the royalfamily, so i don't follow all the ins and outs. it is quite difficult to escape when it is
11:39 pm
everywhere, and you can't really escape some of this drama that goes on. but i think what it seems to be is, we have this photo as well of the different generations of the royal family standing together, and it seems like this is really laying the ground for the future of the royal family and what that will look like. and for people who are may be more interested in the royalfamily which i think is lots of people in the uk and beyond, people will be interested to see how harry and meghan relate to the monarchy, if at all. what is this relationship going to look like? how are they going to manage this? it seems difficult to imaginea manage this? it seems difficult to imagine a scenario where you are going to have one foot in and one foot out. what will it look like? pa rt foot out. what will it look like? part of what this is about is hammering out that feature and i think that might take some time, actually, to appear. and it could be that as part of this evolution of what the monarchy is. there has been this talk, hasn't spoke of slimming down the royal family. this talk, hasn't spoke of slimming down the royalfamily. that this talk, hasn't spoke of slimming down the royal family. that picture you are talking about was just the queen, prince charles, prince
11:40 pm
william and little george, and almost saying, 0k, william and little george, and almost saying, ok, let's stop having such a wide family and let's focus on the core element and let the others do their own thing. lots has been read into that. i must admit, if one was watching the queen's speech, it was a sort of moment that harry and meghan were not pictured there. the question is, really, what a not pictured there because these ruptures were already brewing and they had initiated the bad feeling, if you like, or how they reacted to the fact that they were not pictured there? it is not knowing those kinds of details which has led to the spread of the press to hard, quite understandably, different interpretations of what exactly is going on here. the telegraph is obviously stressing, as we have said, but the queen is in charge and she wants this repaired quickly, which i think is laudable and sensible. but it also quotes unnamed soui'ces sensible. but it also quotes unnamed sources from within the palace saying, you know, it is going to be
11:41 pm
difficult to resolve this quite so quickly. there are some complicated things that need to be knitted together here and this has been landed on the monarch, if not completely from nowhere, but certainly the speed at which everybody wants this to be resolved has, you know, they may want it to be resolved this quickly, but the demands for it to be able to be done so are demands for it to be able to be done so are rather demands for it to be able to be done so are rather more demands for it to be able to be done so are rather more difficult to be met. and of course the backdrop for all of this as we move to the daily mail is public opinion and the fact that that will be pressing on the royalfamily, the that that will be pressing on the royal family, the fact they have got a poll which they says represents fury of a hurry and megan. tell us more about some of these figures? this is a daily mail poll of about 1000 people conducted online, and some of the takeaway is, i think, i who is seen is a default. 0ne some of the takeaway is, i think, i who is seen is a default. one of the things that was asked was, were they right not to tell the queen in advance? 71% of people polled say they were wrong. you can see there is this kind of public opinion on
11:42 pm
side with the queen. but there is also this question about who they think made the decision. this is presented is whether it was a joint decision, made by the two of them, and if you look at what some of the royal correspondence subset as well, ari has had this difficult relationship with parts of the press, thinking about the reporting and in the relationship to the reporting about what happened to his mother, it seems it was a joint decision, not that we are privy to these conversations. but this polling suggests that the majority of people, 44%, think it was meghan who made this decision and only 39% think it was made equally. it is pa rt think it was made equally. it is part of the narrative around this, following the announcement, but it was meghan driving this, her fault, who is to blame, depending on how you it, her decision. i kind of thing that is reflective of some of the reporting we have had around him more generally before this announcement, which i think is disappointing to see, to lay it out the feet of this one individual, as
11:43 pm
opposed to a joint decision made by the two of them. i think it is slightly unfair. i also think what is interesting about this is that it is interesting about this is that it isa is interesting about this is that it is a very different story but it came not so long after all of the incredibly problematic comments made by prince andrew around the newsnight interview which is now so well known by so many people. when you look at the royal ratings they have on the story as well, he is right at the bottom, and not unsurprisingly, given some of the comments he made, the lack of remorse he seemed to show for the rooms involved in that whole... yeah, sorry, with the solicitation of underage girls and so on. exactly. i think it relates to this whole idea of the royalfamily wanting to create a particular vision, to represent themselves in a particular way, with that picture.|j think that is right. that i come back to this idea but the royal family have, well, certainly the
11:44 pm
queen has largely held the respect of so many people for so long, because she has been aloof, because she has been discrete, because she doesn't expose her emotional vulnerability in public. now, of course we have a mixed attitude towards that because sometimes she has been criticised for not being more sympathetic, not being more empathetic. certainly around the time ofand empathetic. certainly around the time of and sustain a's death, of course. and she has had to that and i think she has emerged from this is somebody at the centre of british people's hearts. —— has had to adapt to that. and what i think is in many ways sad about this poll is that it really shows what a quickjourney harry and meghan have taken from being rather the darlings of the british public, that wedding was just a couple of years ago now, and how celebratory and enthusiastic and delighted we all were about that, to
11:45 pm
a situation now where there is a real sense that, among many of the people polled here, but they have served a big injustice on the queen and they are really largely to blame for this. one thing that seems to me has really got people's goat, the daily mail talks about people being deeply angry, is the sort of finances and the and the suggestion they want to have their cake and eat it. the questions, things you discuss in terms of finances more broadly i think what... my people are saying in this polling is that they don't wa nt in this polling is that they don't want things like harry and megan to keep things like taxpayer support for security and there's a whole discussion about frogmore cottage which i believe they have renovated and whether they should keep that as their base in 60% of people say no. in the statement they did say they... this is becoming —— about
11:46 pm
becoming financially independent, when that happens are meant to be seen, exactly what that look like. questions will continue to be asked about that. there are questions here about that. there are questions here about whether they should be allowed to keep their royal titles if they wa nt to to keep their royal titles if they want to in money or is that somehow distasteful that they will be playing on the names in order to generate income because back in the sense they are ready. that launched a website which apparently has been in development since may be last march which would rather suggest that not only has a sense of unease been brewing on their behalf but they have rather been moving against they have rather been moving against the rest of the royal family which would support some of the conclusions made by people in this poll. but to call it sussex royal .com and to use it as a way of being influences, i think it is pretty distasteful, it is a misuse of the
11:47 pm
royal seal if you like, and i think what they may find is this move, however sympathetic one may be to some of their desire for a more private life, will actually expose them to more scrutiny, without selling the support of the whole royal entourage. i thought they were interesting tensions if you like in the poll, is a 72% of people said the poll, is a 72% of people said the queen should let them go abroad would suggest people there, if they want, go. and yet people and they asked about the money and things like that say hang on, i'm not so sure about that but. they can go but they almost need to fully go. there are no winners in this. u nfortu nately, are no winners in this. unfortunately, i think one hopes that they do emerge from it at the arrangement they want but they're very well —— very well may not do. the royal family will be sorry to see them go. it seems to me this has
11:48 pm
been a very premature move on their behalf and everybody ends up slightly better of it seems to me. finally, one wonders. crisis takers: the queen. with the coverage of the royalfamily, we the queen. with the coverage of the royal family, we do the the queen. with the coverage of the royalfamily, we do the big picture, we do what does this mean for the institution? some of the paper is going on the rift within the family and the impact on the individuals assuming beings. there is a strange thing with the royal family, you've got the institution on the one hand and the real lives on the other. they are human beings, of course we ta ke they are human beings, of course we take into account as we should do with any story and were not so interested in bed they've talked about. i know that i may be in the minority in the country, i think that it's hard to tell what members of the royal family a feeling of thinking and they‘ re of the royal family a feeling of thinking and they're not speaking about it and is well within their
11:49 pm
rights not talk about their feelings but we do from some small snippets from a few months ago the top of some of this has taken, the toll of some of this has taken, the toll of some of this has taken, the toll of some of the reporting, the races reporting and the intrusive reporting and the intrusive reporting was taking on and you think that some of that is opposite of that race is reporting but the more intrusive reporting because she isa more intrusive reporting because she is a public figure, it's a different debate but you can see that it did have an effect on her and i imagine the sum of that will affect their decision and you also have to feel a degree of sympathy i think for someone who has been vilified are pa rt someone who has been vilified are part of the press in the way she has. it's drove a different facets. take us to the eye because they've gone with a totally different story. we were talking about a run, the crisis and the tension with united states — iran. tells about the numbers they've been crunching. i've lost my front cover to flush in
11:50 pm
front of the cameras but well done on them by finding a story that wasn't in any way related to the royal family. wasn't in any way related to the royalfamily. and wasn't in any way related to the royal family. and that is what the eye is very good at. they are doing something competent in the field. they are suggesting that if you look at the stock prices of the arms manufacturer's, british and american arms manufacturer's in the 2a others immediately after the eradication if that's the right word of the authority by the americans, the value of the defence firms shot up with the possibility of global instability. there is a subtext to the suggestion that there might be some deliberation on behalf of trump and trying to boost the fortunes of american arms manufacturer's. but i think what it doesn't come on to say is where we are now, week on in
11:51 pm
terms of these stock prices. is where we are now, week on in terms of these stock pricesm is where we are now, week on in terms of these stock prices. it was interesting to see this whole idea that other companies that are benefiting from misery and conflict ) ithink benefiting from misery and conflict ) i think one of the quotes that is interesting from an unnamed defence a nalyst interesting from an unnamed defence analyst saying this is not profiting from misery, it's about having the ability to deter and prevent wider conflict. only because i think what a sight more interesting is the stuff they have the was into the piece which is looking at the research conducted by an injured —— institute in stockholm that has found the increase in the defence companies globally since 2002. the amount of money that has brought in, i think it should be a pause for thought, defence can cover all sorts of different things but it includes the manufacturing of arms. without
11:52 pm
being sold to and how they're feeling confident around the world. we often think conflict is been contained within the country but actually given the nature of global economy, countries all around the world implicated in a lot of the complex, i think it should give us pause for thought my britain in particular is a huge seller of arms and thinking about what that means for conflict in different places including places like yemen, there is humanitarian disaster. it should be put under the microscope more often. a final point, we want to go back to the daily telegraph. this is about car crime and insurance premiums. the article says that the government is making a lot of money, the treasury is making a lot of money is also different from a story that we have just been discussing. the perverse incentives if you like for governments or companies to benefit from unfortunate situations. and this is saying that there has
11:53 pm
beena and this is saying that there has been a huge increase in money into the treasury through insurance premium attacks because of the increase in premiums due to the rise in car theft. beautifully expressed. in the suggestion that car crime is rather appealing to criminals. and you are less likely to get caught. the suggestion of the relationship between the money has been made and the cuts that have happened in terms of police numbers. how difficult it is to catch people doing this thing but more specifically whether enough resources a re but more specifically whether enough resources are being put into it. that's a good posture and. stories are not always what they seem. that's it for the papers tonight. thank you maya and joanne. 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, and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. goodbye.
