hello, this is bbc news. i'm rico hizon in singapore. if‘ai‘it we will be taking a look at tomorrow the headlines: that means we will mostly dry start, that means we will see more unsettled weather on morning's papers in a moment. saturday, plenty of heavy showers, first the headlines: and they chilly, brisk northerly venezuela's opposition leader makes a triumphant return to the capital, the home secretary, sajid javid, caracas, and calls for more protests wind. some hill snow across says there is no single solution to tackling serious violence, scotland, perhaps northern england, after two i7—year—olds were fatally northern ireland as well. though the stabbed in separate against president maduro. south—east, you're more likely to incidents this weekend. stay dry with some sunshine but translation: they've threatened all of us, me too, with prison, death, again, temperatures nothing to write there's no hiding from this issue, mr speaker. home about. —— for the south—east. serious violence is on the rise. andi of us, me too, with prison, death, and i say to you, despite the persecution, they will not stop us. communities are being torn apart, and families you can see the blue collars, we are are losing their children. tit—for—tat developments on huawei. is it a brexit bung? china accuses two canadians going to be on the col decided that labour accuses the government of spying, as a senior huawei executive sues canada jetstrea m. going to be on the col decided that of bribing mps with a £1.6 billion jetstream. the jet stream going to be on the col decided that jetstream. thejet stream divides the cold air in the north from the fund to boost deprived areas, over her arrest. milderair in the i'm kasia madera in london. the cold air in the north from the milder air in the south. as we head also in the programme: into next week, we also going to see a trail of destruction days before a crunch brexit vote. in america's deep south, it more low pressure moving in. all and fears more bodies will be found after tornadoes kill at least 23 the time, we are on the northern, thousands of people line the streets of venezuela's capital, chilly side of that jetstream over caracas, to welcome home the next ten days or so. all in all, the country's self—declared interim leader, juan guaido. as we look ahead to the next six to ten days into next week, it will and the city of stoke, along with players past and present, remember the goalkeeping legend stay pretty unsettled. often pretty windy on the card is well, are also gordon banks as he is laid to rest in his hometown.
11:31 pm
some hill snow at times too. that is it for now, bye—bye. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the political strategist jo tanner and the economics commentator at new statesman grace blakeley. and many of the front pages are leading on the rising levels of knife crime, following two more deaths at the weekend. lots of debate about what to do and how to battle this. the metro leads with strong words from the former met police chief lord bernard hogan—howe. he is calling for cuts to policing to be reversed. the daily telegraph publishes a plea from the chair of the west midlands police federation to roll out sweeping stop—and—search powers. the daily mail carries the images of the 27 teenagers who have lost their lives to knife crime in the past year. it asks how many more must die. the i also leads on this story,
11:32 pm
with the home secretary calling for an emergency summit. the guardian carries a picture of prodigy singer keith flint, who died today. their top story is also the rise in knife crime. the ft reveals the prime minister has moved to protectjersey, guernsey, and the isle of man from new financial transparency rules, angering campaigners. the times' top story is its own investigation which reveals schools are asking parents to donate hundreds of pounds a year to help support repairs, staff salaries, and provide books for pupils. that is a disturbing story. anyway, even more disturbing front page of the daily mail. grace, knife crime crisis, how many more? the pictures thereof 27 teenagers all stabbed so far this year. that front page gives
11:33 pm
the feel of a crime that is being committed almost every day. actually, the figures suggest that it isa actually, the figures suggest that it is a fairly rare type of crime, but it is actually on the rise, and thatis but it is actually on the rise, and that is what is scary. yes, i think what we have seen over the last eight or nine years, really, is that all forms of violent crime have gone from declining, we had this secular trend of declines in violent crime, that has now ended and we are seeing violent crime rising, which is something that you kind of don't see in wealthy economies that are able to pay for the services and support for young people. you cannot take away the fact that this has to be linked to cuts to all forms of services we have seen as well as a general decline in people's economic circumstances. if you look at the evidence it suggests that inequality is by far the most statistically significant factor across countries that explains the increasing violence. so this is really a kind of big structural issue when we see the statistics we have seen,
11:34 pm
increases of 70%, 93%, i think it is in young people being treated for sta b in young people being treated for stab wounds in the last five years. that has to do with big changes that are taking place in the way we deal with these issues. it is not suddenly the case that everyone suddenly the case that everyone suddenly decided to go out and start stabbing people. it has to do with much more kind of significant structural factors. one much more kind of significant structuralfactors. one of much more kind of significant structural factors. one of the tragic death this weekend, joe, was jodie chesney. a girl died, went the number ten, posed for pictures out there. not the kind of figure that perhaps some people might associate with this kind of incident, and perhaps that has woken up people to what is actually going on. yes, i think the traditional view of knife crime and the way it has been growing is that it is a gang issue, it is about postcodes. there have been lots of sort of theories around white children are killing other
11:35 pm
children. essentially they are children, it is horrifying, but jodie chesney was a girl who was sat with her boyfriend on a bench and talking with friends, at the time she was murdered. and that sort of... her death has almost become something that people have looked at in sucha something that people have looked at in such a short amount of time and said, hang on, it doesn't fit with the pattern, and it has i think shopped a lot of people very quickly. —— shocked a lot of people. and it might be that this particular case will suddenly lead to more action. who knows? any one of these deaths should on their own lead to action, it shouldn't require it to be one person, just because she was at number ten, it shouldn't be just because it was a knife on the back. any of these children should not been killed, certainly by a child and not with a knife. outrage of may's denial austerity linked to
11:36 pm
stabbings. all the research does suggest that where you have an increase in this kind of crime it is usually in areas where there may be particular socio economic factors. and the guardian is leading on this particular angle, that austerity must be part of this crisis.|j particular angle, that austerity must be part of this crisis. i think it is just obvious. if you think about the kind of sets of decisions thatis about the kind of sets of decisions that is going to lead to a young person, who probably doesn't know better, ending up stabbing someone, it goes back many, many years and it will have to do with... there's all sorts of studies about the rise of permanent exclusions from academies, under pressure to show good grades and they are excluding people from deprived backgrounds, they end up going injoining deprived backgrounds, they end up going in joining gangs. deprived backgrounds, they end up going injoining gangs. the cuts to youth services, as well, means they have nowhere else to go. i think a really significant problem we're not talking other massive strains that children's social care is under the moment. you not only have more young people going into care, you have
11:37 pm
vast the reduced services in terms of quality and quantity and that leaves more young people vulnerable. again, you have got the housing crisis, you have got a whole set of issues that we are starting to see. but the point about it was this young girl who was killed, i think young girl who was killed, i think you can say that for austerity as a whole, because it is starting to affect more than just the margins of society. it is really starting to have a deep effect on everyone's lives, and i think that are starting to pile on the pressure on theresa may. it is interesting, isn't it, theresa may today, speaking about this, she said there is no correlation between the numbers of coppers on the beat and the rise in knife crime. so it's nothing to do with coppers. she says it's nothing to do with austerity. in this case, what should she do? that is exactly the issue. i suspect there has been a series of... a series of papers that have gone across her desk and from her time as home secretary. that is what we need to remember, she was home secretary for, what,
11:38 pm
six years? one of the longest serving if not the longest serving. reality is there will always be evidence to suggest it is austerity, to suggest that police numbers have no effect. in a way, i don't really ca re no effect. in a way, i don't really care what the reasons are, i just ca re care what the reasons are, i just care what the reasons are, i just care what they are going to do about it and that is what a lot of people are starting to think now. but you have to know what the reasons are to know what to do. it is no good looking back and saying it is because of what happened eight years ago, ten years ago, six years ago. the reality is we now have an epidemic, we have a situation where young people have made a series of bad decisions. we need to do something to deal with those children. we also need to make sure that the next generation are not going to make those decisions as well, and that isn'tjust about police numbers. that is actually about the support in schools, that is about the youth groups, that is actually about parts of the community working together in a way that they used to but don't necessarily any more. and i don't know if that... you know, some of the funding that was cut from the
11:39 pm
groups that helped those children, it could have been austerity, but it could also have been that it wasn't seen as a could also have been that it wasn't seen as a need because the numbers have plummeted because it was working. i think it is such a complex issue. i don't like politics being involved in it. i think it is too serious. i think actually it should have a bunch of people... we've got a labour mayor in london, we have a conservative government, they should be getting around the table and working out what to do, rather than throwing back and forth it is yourfault, rather than throwing back and forth it is your fault, it is your fault, it is your fault, it is your fault, it is your policy. they have to work out how to solve it. the papers seem to be covering story according to how some people feel that they would, because of their political bent. we have the guardian focusing on austerity, the daily telegraph, bring back stop—and—search to beat knife crime crisis. the problem is there were issues with the way that stop—and—search was being implemented, and that is why it was relaxed over the last year or two back years. yes, i think you have lots of studies, lots of campaigners, particularly people who work with at risk young people,
11:40 pm
saying stop—and—search does not help. it is the easy kind of knee—jerk reaction just to say this isa knee—jerk reaction just to say this is a problem that affects particular community so we are going to start kind of targeting them. whereas actually, the reason that these problems are often more prevalent among certain communities is because they are the ones that experience they are the ones that experience the most deprivation in areas which are the most disadvantaged. so i really think the government needs to focus on the things that it can control. it can control, immediately, budgets for youth services. it can control the activities that schools are doing to kind of keep people off the streets. it can control the amount it is spending on, as i said, children's social care. theresa may and others need to decide what is more important, saving money or saving lives. what was your view when you we re lives. what was your view when you were working with the mayor on stop—and—search? were working with the mayor on stop-and-search? there was a lot of evidence to suggest that it had... because genuine problems in
11:41 pm
communities, and that one of the problems... you know, people harp act to the good old days when you could stop your local bobby and asked directions for somewhere and there was a lot of suggestions that neighbourhood policing had its strengths, and that actually you had officers who knew their communities really well. but in a way, stop—and—search, i think for everything it solves, it caused another set of problems. and that was a big concern at the time. and i think the issue around certain communities feeling very targeted, it was real, and actually, all that then happened was that you had youngsters who look at the police and just saw them as the enemy, didn't see them as people they could go and talk to when there was a problem, didn't see them... they just distrusted them, probably as much as has happened in the past, but that sense when you also had things like the institutional racism accusations following stephen knight's death, you had the sense of them and us, and it was about essentially trying to close that gap
11:42 pm
andi essentially trying to close that gap and i think stop—and—search was one of the things that was making that gap wider. moving on to the financial times, and grace, this is your baby. —— grace. you are an expert on this, not because you a squirrel away millions. grace in the sheu squirrel away millions. grace in the shell companies. you do work for the new statesman, come on! —— new statesman. it looks very interesting on the front page of the financial times. it is a fascinating story, and this is something we don't talk about enough, maybe because it is a little bit complicated, but essentially what the legislation is trying to do was introduce public registers of beneficial ownership into crown dependencies, that is a lot ofjargon into crown dependencies, that is a lot of jargon but into crown dependencies, that is a lot ofjargon but essentially it is showing who owns companies registered in guernsey, jersey, those closer to home tax havens. similar legislation was introduced last year for the crown
11:43 pm
dependencies, sorry, for the overseas territories, so you know, the cayman islands, the british virgin islands. that was seen as a victory but it pushed a lot more money into places likejersey. it is basically very easy to set up a company, obscure who really owns it and who really benefits from it, and use that to kind of channel often illicit funds, actually, but often just kind of tax that has been avoided, and oxfam has said the crown dependencies are at the forefront of costing countries billions of dollars a year. and i think this is linked in many ways... the fact that theresa may is refusing to allow the situation to be debated while we're also seeing all the kind horrific impact that austerity is having, and saying that tax avoidance doesn't matter and it will all go in spending cuts, you have to link this stuff together and think what planet is this government
11:44 pm
on? one what do you think about? well, it is a really interesting move, because this is one of the big issues today that we have been talking about, and we have heard about, the idea that certain labour mps were trying to be bought off by this money that was being injected into certain parts of the country. and tax avoidance, as well, if you wa nt and tax avoidance, as well, if you want to get some labour mps vexed, this is one of the issues that will really get them going, so the idea that this particular vote, the story is about a particular vote that was going to take place that has now been pulled, and essentially the territories themselves have actually said they were predicting a constitutional crisis if mps legislated on them and that they had no representation at westminster and theresa may apparently agreed. that is quite a controversial position to ta ke is quite a controversial position to take tom and also at the very time where she is supposed to be wooing labourmps, darel where she is supposed to be wooing labour mps, dare i say it is not a story yet because of excess, and we couldn't go one night without the b
11:45 pm
word, but it is a potentially quite controversial thing. margaret hodge, fantastic campaign on tax avoidance, this is the sort of stuff that will get her going, this is the sort of stuff that will get hergoing, and this is the sort of stuff that will get her going, and she can store stirupa get her going, and she can store stir up a hornet 's nest. but is this the kind of thing that would nullify the vote of a particular mp, he might have been thinking i will have been £1 million for my inner city area? then she sees this and things come on, what are you doing? i think it is going to depend a lot on who those mps and their general political interest in voting for the deal or not because ultimately, may cannot actually explicitly link that money to your vote. see just take the money. that is what i would be doing if i am an mp. hello, yeah. all parts of the country need this money anyway, tackling things itax avoidance would go some way to paying for lot of the
11:46 pm
infrastructure, the public services that we really need. all right, ok, the front page of the ft. no, we have not, we go to the front page of the times. parents to pay for books, this is crazy. it is, i am a chair ata this is crazy. it is, i am a chair at a primary school and we have not got to this stage it, we had to have restructure last year and staff because you realise that to have supervision at lunchtimes, it was area that we could actually save some money and we rejigged our teaching assistants and managed to get them to cover the day and a cover break times and things, which basically saved us money. we have not got to the stage yet, thank goodness, of having to ask parents for money we have had to fund raise bits of equipment, we rely heavily on the parents's association to do things for us, but this is a growing problem. because of cuts to local authority funding? well, it has been
11:47 pm
authority funding? well, it has been a general argument about what money has been going in terms of school spending per pupil. there was a whole period where it is the argument of whether overall, the money is going up but actually when you break it down, it is not at all, and there are lots of resource provisions thatjust and there are lots of resource provisions that just have and there are lots of resource provisions thatjust have not got enough support. you have particular provisions, we have got one poor example for autistic children but also for speech and language, and if those one half empty, they run at a loss and it becomes extremely expensive to give targeted support. school funding is hugely complex and it isa school funding is hugely complex and it is a problem that is not getting any better. ok, sticking with the times briefly, why the world seems happier when you are older is popular why did you come to me on that? she is not there yet. i do think my life has gone slightly harder since i was 18, so i don't
11:48 pm
know. apparently when we get older, we just do not care as much. ok. there was a study about how perceptions and reality is that when we are perceptions and reality is that when we are younger, you perceptions and reality is that when we are younger, you remember the songis we are younger, you remember the song is over when you are eight and a half, that whole idea that you are more heightened about emotions when you are younger than when you're older, so maybe we just do not a stuff. yeah, sod it. finally, the front page of the telegraph. the times, actually. royal ascot are relaxing the rules on dress codes and making them slightly more gender fluid, i suppose is the term. they are saying that women can wear suits in the front page of the times actually has a jumpsuit, which i'm sure you have got a couple of those, which women will be able to wear for the first time in ascot and actually of men decide to wear something, thatis of men decide to wear something, that is typically feminine, they
11:49 pm
could. would you wear a suit? would you get away with a suit? do you think i could get away with a suit? i think that is everyone else's... and saying —— and saying they are going to let you in now, that is the point. and if you are a gentleman and you decide to wear a dress, you can do that. it is not a leap forward in gender relations for the world, people being able to wear suits, but there you go. you still cannot get into the reform cloud. actually, you can get into the reform club, it is the garrick club you cannot get into. we will live at there. it has been good having in looking at some of the stories
11:50 pm
behind the headlines. thank you both. —— having you in. that's it for the papers tonight. 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 and if you miss the programme any evening, you can relive the magic on bbc iplayer. thank you, political strategist jo tanner, and economics commentator at the new statesman, grace blakeley. and to you for watching, bye. good evening. a look at the latest board here on bbc news. defending champion celtic will face their old firm rivals rangers or aberdeen in the scottish cup semifinals, as the draw was made earlier this evening. before that, partick thistle made a spirited comeback to force quarter—final replay against hearts. it was the captain who headed the

11:53 pm
five or six key things, and i think we saw evidence of that today. the funeral of gordon banks, who died last month aged 81, took place earlier today and stoke. thousands lining the streets to say goodbye and pay their final respects. his coffin was carried by the current number one goal the clubs he served during his career in britain. joe hart represented england, while stoke's jack butland represented leicester city. also in attendance we re leicester city. also in attendance were sir bobby charlton and so geoff hurst, gave the eulogy during the service. —— who gave the eulogy. very sad day, one of the greats in his profession, it is always a bridge when you come across the best, so it has been a privilege for me. “— best, so it has been a privilege for me. —— it is always a privilege. he
