i'm not sure whether he mannering, i'm not sure whether he will please with that. it was jacob rees—mogg who compared himself to captain mannering because he said in his very curious press conference we had today which is a full line—up of brexiteers making their case against theresa may's package and someone said is this a bumbling dad's army style, he said i've always admired captain mannering, their apb comment from the remainder and she said it's more of eight —— war began to private pike. what this all really gets to is the fact of these eurosceptics have wanting to get —— having wanted to get rid of theresa may and they were in a position where they were against her policy and not the person. ever since she came back with the deal last week they said actually the person now needs to go, but they've actually failed in their attempt and there's been a big split amongst this european research group which is one of the pockets of hard—line brexiteers, some of them want her to 90, brexiteers, some of them want her to go, some don't want her to go and the fact is they got
10:46 pm
go, some don't want her to go and the fact is they - got the 48 the fact is they haven't got the 48 numbers and they all look pretty foolish. they predicted they would have those numbers and they haven't. you know something, the memories of those of us who are a little older going back to the 1990s and the challenge tojohn going back to the 1990s and the challenge to john major byjohn redwood, and that press conference to launch that challenge. with the jackets. yes, i remember who it was as well. it was an extraordinary event that was frankly killed that campaign from the start. and here we are again, and the comparison with dad's army was almost inevitable, regardless of whether jacob rees—mogg brought it out himself or not. that -- that does not mean to save me when i still get the 48 letters. they might be on 47. they might do, but the extraordinary situation is the big floor for some
10:47 pm
of us in this brexiteer argument —— the big flaw is that the vote was 42-48, 50 2-48 if you the big flaw is that the vote was 42—48, 50 2—48 if you are being generous, right? and that it was not overwhelming vote for a hard brexit, so overwhelming vote for a hard brexit, so there has to be a consensus, and i think the country increasingly is getting that. let's have a quick look, sebastian, at the express because we know that theresa may is going to be meeting jean claude juncker tomorrow for more talks and saying i will not let... telling the express i will not let the uk be trapped in a customs union. this is the main complaint brexiteers have against her package which is it includes this irish backstop which we will probably never hear the end of ba cksto p we will probably never hear the end of backstop is an insurance policy that will be staying in the customs union with the eu, brexiteers day that means you cannot do trade deals, remainders say it will protect the irish border. what theresa may is saying here is the
10:48 pm
customs union would always be a temporary thing. how she's going to pledged to do that, we don't quite know because in the withdrawal agreement which will become a legally binding international treaty, it does say is everything else fails we will end up in a customs union. i think coming back to david's point before, the real dangerfor brexiteers, to david's point before, the real danger for brexiteers, when they started this campaign against theresa may's deal they have the public on their side. the numbers we re public on their side. the numbers were not in favour of this deal. if they have the kind of events and go on about these very specific details to be quite frank, the public will you lose interest. you get the sense people just want to get on with it and they don't really like theresa may's deal that much, but if the alternative is people going on about trade and christmas customs unions and backstops for evermore it helps the prime minister. and what is the alternative? there the prime minister. and what is the alternative ? there is the prime minister. and what is the alternative? there is still... it is still totally unclear to most members of the public, i would
10:49 pm
suggest, what the alternative really is that is being offered, and they just don't see it. i think there is a clear criticism that her deal has lots of issues and it is not the clea n b rea k lots of issues and it is not the clean break from the lots of issues and it is not the clean breakfrom the eu or will curtail the advantages of leaving the eu, but it's the only deal offer, she is the only credible candidate on offer at the moment. they haven't been able to put it be clearer alternative. jacob rees—mogg would like to paint himself as a future prime minister, so for the moment her plan and her position are the only game in town. execute if they were here would say the trade deal... we now have an agreement,... an agreement that brexiteers do not like. let's go onto another angle, gibraltar and the hope version of spain. throughout the whole east —— negotiations this has a really featured very much. at the beginning people thought it would but now it is back. if you go back to the night of the referendum result, gibraltar
10:50 pm
did figure, and the first result came from gibraltar. i member that very well and very clearly. i believe —— i rememberthat very well. i think the significance of gibraltar servicing of his very late stage and sebastian will tell us whether actually the spanish can do anything about this, at this point, you did wonder, the extraordinary thing over the past two years has been the apparent unity of the 27 countries. 27 countries on one side, one country on the other. forget brexit, forget any negotiation. any negotiation in the world where the one country can expect very much when it's negotiating with 27 and a split... on the same gibraltar spain issue there is an interesting angle in the telegraph leading on it. scotla nd in the telegraph leading on it. scotland will be free to rejoin the european union, says spain, which will delight the snp. exactly, because the pain has always been
10:51 pm
very insistent that if scotland were independent it could not simply rejoin, you have to do the whole process ca n rejoin, you have to do the whole process can take decades to join the blog, and that is because they been worried about catalan independence, but clearly spain is not particularly happy at this deal as david was just saying. they said they've been very united behind the european commission so far, but as we enter the final endgame up until the summit coming this sunday, the members tape are starting to break and the fact that spain is saying this will very much anger downing street and westminster‘s idea of saying scotland to be independent andjoin saying scotland to be independent and join the eu again because that is one of the biggest arguments against scottish independence here. i think against scottish independence here. ithink in against scottish independence here. i think in a way it is a howl of how they feel at their demands are being ignored by the commission who've been focused on the economic interest of the larger countries, france and germany over gibraltar and other parts of the union. is going to be interesting to see what
10:52 pm
that you respond to this whole draft agreement is. the eu has said the negotiation is done, and so hang on a minute, here comes spain. you do wonder why spain has not made more ofa wonder why spain has not made more of a noise about this earlier. a little bit later in the day perhaps. there is a risk because some people wa nt to there is a risk because some people want to go back and start tinkering with that deal. if we reopen its pain will want to reopen, french fishermen will want to reopen a. quick look at your paper, sebastian. leading off on this story about the boss of nissan, you know all about this. you can tell us a little bit more. carlos, the head of nissan and renault and the chairman of mitsubishi, one of the world's most powerful and intuitive businessman was very much answer honestly kicked out of nissan following this revelation about his pay, disclosure and what have you. a very curious twist in the story which i'm reporting on tomorrow's paper which says he wanted to have a merger
10:53 pm
between renaut and nissan and it was... this structure has been a 20 yea rs was... this structure has been a 20 years but it strikes me again. here's another one of big business beast who have essentially have these great public images, these great media savvy profiles, and then have sort of come under a lot of scrutiny and revelations that show them to not quite be the characters they want to be seen as. and they have hung around for rather a long time, some rather close to me. there is gordon taylor who's been in charge of the professional footballers association for i think a mere 36 or 37 years or something. seriously, the days of holding these top post for that length of time are frankly gone. and i think people who hold these post are now being held up hold these post are now being held up to much higher level of scrutiny
10:54 pm
in terms of their corporate behaviour and their personal behaviour, whereas in the past the aura around them meant they could get away with a lot more. there are allegations against carlos, which we will have to wait and see what happens with all of that. the daily mail finally. david, happens with all of that. the daily mailfinally. david, they've got happens with all of that. the daily mail finally. david, they've got an epidemic of child gamblers, 55,000 under seven teens have a problem with gambling. that is a pretty startling figure. it is a startling figure. experts blame and it's close enough tv ads. i must say every time i watch football on tv i'm astonished at how many adverts for gambling there are. of course. the most astonishing paragraph of all is about the fourth and fifth, the money goes on through machines, bingo, in betting shops or online, which are all illegal for under 18. you do ask who is enforcing any of these new rules as they exist? do you think... we have had a boat on
10:55 pm
that in parliament tonight on the fixed odds betting terminals, bringing that forward. yes, the government has decided to reduce the sta kes o n government has decided to reduce the stakes on these fixed odds betting terminals from £100 to £2 to try to tackle this sort of thing, but it is not just the government. tackle this sort of thing, but it is notjust the government. i think there is a cultural change going on. you saw an announcement from stylus week that said they would significantly cut down the number of gambling as on the rolling news channel —— you saw an announcement from sky will stuff i think you'll see a general cultural shift that there is a problem. it is an addiction, it can be an addiction. just like drug or alcohol. two in three of these children say they have seen it on cd, the other thing isa have seen it on cd, the other thing is a lot of this is done online and according to the story1 million youngsters have been exposed to this through loopholes in games or on smartphone apps whereas clearly both in bingo halls or betting shops, the whole thing is not being regulated properly. it is one of the examples
10:56 pm
where government is not keeping track on technological change. and you do wonder when the minister of sport tracy crouch who resigned because of the government's attitude, which has now been reversed, is going to be brought back into government. would you like seeing that? i personally would. for the moment, that is it. thank you, david davies and sebastian payne. we'll be back with much more for the paper is at half past 11. don't forget you can see the front pages of the newspapers online on our website, all there for you seven days a week. if you missed the programme and evening you can see it later on the bbci player. thanks again david and sebastian. until later on, we will see later. goodbye for now. hello. a day with a cold wind, not a
