continuing to work through. spiralling around an area of low pressure which will be sitting just about here on monday morning. this low is really going to dominate the weather through the week ahead, bringing further showers or longer spells of rain. we start monday morning with a band of cloud and showery rain working eastwards. as they please we will see more in the way of sunshine, perhaps one or two showers or thunderstorms breaking up. temperature wise during monday we are looking at 19—24 in the south. generally a fresher field. breezy. northern parts of the uk seeing lots of showers as we head towards the middle of the week. there is the ongoing risk for some disruption and flooding. further south, not as many showers. spells of sunshine. temperatures up to 24. further downpours in the forecast. it is worth staying tuned to the forecasts of the next few days.
first, the headlines. it's being reported that at least 19 people have been killed in a mass shooting at a shopping centre in the texas city of el paso. we do have one person in custody, i can confirm that it is a white male in his 20s. we don't feel that there is a threat to the public or that there are any other shooters at this time. desperate efforts to shore up a dam in danger of collapse in derbyshire. more residents nearby, are told to leave their homes. i did have to walk up the road last night and just scream because i did face what i could lose. talks to avert strike action at heathrow resume tomorrow, but more than 170 flights next week are already cancelled. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow. particularly on the front pages. it is here every night here on bbc news. with me is political commentator jo phillips and the political editor of the people and the sunday mirror, nigel nelson. good evening. hello. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. some of them have changed in the last few hours. ‘it‘s too late to stop no deal‘, the telegraph leads with a message to mps from the prime minister's top aide. the independent has liberal democrat leaderjo swinson calling on tory mps to act now to prevent a no—deal brexit. in other words, the fact. —— defect. the express leads on tory mps asking brexit party leader nigel farage not to field candidates against them. in the observer, ‘schools chaos after no—deal brexit‘. that is a bit frightening. a secret government document reveals some schools may even have to close. leading in the mirror, ‘race row over the new strictly
judge', with the bbc being accused ‘of box ticking'. in the sunday times, an end to the menopause, pioneering surgery can delay the effects for 20 years. it says. so it isn't sold brexit. know, but nearly all brexit. is this one true? i wouldn't be surprised about this, it is dangerous territory if you are in a small majority. we saw the by—election where the liberal democrats won, now, you can argue if you were a tory strategist the fact that exit, the brexit party for stanley have 3000 votes. if those votes had gone to the conservatives, they would have retained the seat. there is no saying whether they would have gone to the conservatives at all. but we saw the lib dems one because they did a deal for another party not to
field any candidates. so people are concerned. aaron banks apparently has said at least ten conservative mps asked him to try to persuade nigel arise not to —— nigel arise not to sit candidates in his area. and they are launching a huge tactical voting campaign targeting brexit is with small majorities, which would be people like iain duncan smith. and boris johnson. 0h yes, borisjohnson. so there is everything to play for. but what is interesting is, is a lifelong campaignerfor interesting is, is a lifelong campaigner for reform of the voting system, i think people do get tactical voting much more than they did even ten years ago. so, actually, if you play it right and you're sensible, in the end we all know elections come down to maths. first past the post, isn't it? it's
the swing votes of about 1500 people. -- 15,000. there the swing votes of about 1500 people. --15,000. there are the swing votes of about 1500 people. -- 15,000. there are only 200,000 votes in the country that actually count. if you are in a constituency with a huge majority on one side and you vote for the other, your vote is generally wasted. the lib dems in one election got while votes thus much more votes than they had in years with fewer seeds. indeed. they only had douglas, he defected anyway for the tories. you ke pt defected anyway for the tories. you kept in the 2015 election, had they had proportional representation, they would have had 89 you get mps -- ukip. we have yet to find the perfect democracy. the telegraph. 0k, it was make too late to stop a no deal, even a no—confidence vote
for borisjohnson no deal, even a no—confidence vote for boris johnson cannot no deal, even a no—confidence vote for borisjohnson cannot uphold the october 31 brexit, according to a number ten october 31 brexit, according to a numberten aid. october 31 brexit, according to a number ten aid. really? i find this ha rd number ten aid. really? i find this hard to believe. this is dominic cameron's, borisjohnson's hard to believe. this is dominic cameron's, boris johnson's chief adviser. he says even if they were to bea adviser. he says even if they were to be a vote of no—confidence, and evenif to be a vote of no—confidence, and even if it were to succeed, possibly triggering a general election, boris johnson would have the power to schedule it after october 31 when he would presumably with no deal. i don't get that because it seems to me, underthe don't get that because it seems to me, under the rules don't get that because it seems to me, underthe rules at don't get that because it seems to me, under the rules at the moment, you have 14 days after a no—confidence vote forming government, then you have a general election. sol government, then you have a general election. so i can't work out dominic cameron's maths here and as faras dominic cameron's maths here and as far as getting his no deal through, the big thing obviously is the planned super road parliament. and constitutionally that is in a state of flux —— prorogue parliament. in
the green could get cold in on this one and so the cabinet isjust a subcommittee of the privy council. if you have been a cabinet minister, you have the job for life. as a result, all those remainers in the privy council will get together and say we don't want to prorogue parliament, we want to keep going. in other words, parliament is as united as ever? yes. but what is interesting as this is all part the downing street, borisjohnson team of, i don't know, that's go for it, we're going to do it, towards i. this is what people want. people are plotting, it isn't just this is what people want. people are plotting, it isn'tjust boris johnson's team, everybody, every corny of every party —— corner.
johnson's team, everybody, every corny of every party -- corner. we can look at this all the time, but we do need to look at the new nhs money to see if that truly is new money. this is a message to people saying we're going to go for it. dominic, the chief of... when you came in, borisjohnson is coming across is a prime minister, he wants to be more than the brexit prime minister, he is acutely aware of that. what did we say to you? i said no, he's not, he'sjust there for one thing. i think you know there's a possibility that there would be a general election. it would suit him, wouldn't it? europe won't budge, the commons are immovable, i'm going to call an election, say come with me, no—deal brexit aust day n. call an election, say come with me, no-deal brexit aust day n. we will carry on this conversation tomorrow.
let's move onto the male. mr barnier. —— mail. let's move onto the male. mr barnier. -- mail. he is suggesting there could be a deal. that boris johnson could pull off a deal by getting rid of the backstop, that would be phenomenal, and would tip my hat off to him for doing that. but what berkeley is saying is the european parliament has changed. there's a 61% change in meps since the eu elections. as a result, michelle barnier, the chief brexit negotiator could have a new mandate to deal with that. ok. maybe that is a possibility, ithink to deal with that. ok. maybe that is a possibility, i think it is unlikely because we still have the fundamental issues that govern the eu. which is why the eu can't budge.
so, nothing has changed much, really? i don't think anything's are changed. i agree with borisjohnson that theresa may's with auroral agreement is dead. i also think the europeans are not going to reopen it, that will form the basis of it. so the question is can you take about stop —— the backstop out of it and put it somewhere else? there is and put it somewhere else? there is a possibility that could happen, but again, ithink a possibility that could happen, but again, i think it is unlikely. a possibility that could happen, but again, i think it is unlikelylj wa nt again, i think it is unlikely.” wa nt to again, i think it is unlikely.” want to talk about the nhs point we rose earlier. this is from the sunday times. more money for the nhs in england. two all those people who look at the bosses and fell for the promises or believe the promises that it was going to be masses amounts —— massive amounts of money if we left the eu, some of it is coming back allegedly because boris johnson today or tomorrow is in fact going to announce a £2 billion
blitz. on top of the money already pledged? this is on top of, i can't remember how much it was. 20 billion. what —— £20.5 billion. remember how much it was. 20 billion. what -- £20.5 billion. so doctors who earn more than hundred and £10,000 a year, they end up in a pension tax trap, so it is actually not worth it doing any extra hours oi’ not worth it doing any extra hours or work earning more money. boris johnson says he is going to change that. there is going to be and immediate cash boost, £850 million to upgrade hospitals and he promises he is going to tackle the injustices of social care, which every prime minister has shoved into the long grass, despite the excellent report shelved by david cameron. there are many hospitals that need repair.
there is criticism doesn't go far enough. what about recruitment, staffing? one of the other things as we are so staffing? one of the other things as we are so reliant on so many people from a board to come and start hospitals —— abroad, you can build and repairas many hospitals —— abroad, you can build and repair as many hospitals as you like but empty buildings aren't any good to patients. you probably do need £6 billion to upgrade the hospital's given the austerity we are suffering. i think this is only one tenth of the money boris honest one tenth of the money boris honest on his boss. if he was really putting his money where his mouth was, that should be not 1.8 billion pounds, it should be £18 billion. we just have time to talk about one more story in the sunday times, saying there is exclusive, pain earing surgery delaying the effects of menopause for 20 years. we have a quote saying that the surgery was life changing. this is an interesting story. it's not about
extending the biological timeclock so women can have extending the biological timeclock so women can have babies into their 60s and 70s. i think it is based on, from this report, on trying mitigate the extremely uncomfortable, unpleasant and sometimes serious health problems like osteoporosis and heart problems. but for many women going through menopause, it is uncomfortable, quite mentally, you know, draining as well. emotional symptoms and all of that sort of stuff. so if you can postpone it to alleviate the health downside and also protect against osteoporosis and stuff like that... it can be damaging to relationships and marriages as well. but it means women wouldn't perhaps have to take hrt, there are concerns about that, hormone replacement therapy, sometimes said to be linked with breast cancer. so it's an extremely small survey, nine british women have had this surgery, which
involves freezing parts of your ovaries. but i think it's a long way off being available. like all of these things, you don't know what these things, you don't know what the impact is if you delay it until you're 70, are we going to end up with an elderly population with all of these other problems as well? the procedure is not extortionate either, £3000 for removal and £4000 for grafts, a lot of money for the nhs but not beyond reach. for many women, they aren't able to work and function, so this would be for a long time. we have just got time to talk about maga. she has got a new project. she
