the former prime minister david cameron has accused borisjohnson of only backing brexit to further his career, in the latest released extracts from his memoirs. mr cameron also criticises michael gove, who he brands as "disloyal". he says that during the referendum campaign, both mrjohnson and mr gove became "ambassadors for the expert—trashing, truth twisting age of populism". our political correspondent peter saull is with me now. it is more than three years since david cameron left office and resigned immediately from the house of commons and ceased to be an mp. he has been pursuing his business interests and other political interests and other political interests but he is coming back with a real kind of punch in the stomach for thejohnson government. a real kind of punch in the stomach for the johnson government. yeah, and he has been largely silent. here
be out with less than 50 days to go until we are due to leave the european union and his words are going to have some impact, i think. an interesting insight into what was going to his mind at the time. he resigned on the steps of downing street the morning after the referendum, apparently he and his wife had a gin at eight o'clock in the morning before doing so. on a serious note it is more about the conversations that happen between him and other senior conservatives in the run up to that referendum that our own interest, especially borisjohnson. he that our own interest, especially boris johnson. he thought that our own interest, especially borisjohnson. he thought at the time his support would be key to winning that referendum, he failed in that efforts. he and george osborne trying to persuade their collea g u es osborne trying to persuade their colleagues to back remain. he said george osborne was successful in persuading savage —— sajid javid in doing so. cameron's interpretations of borisjohnson doing so. cameron's interpretations of boris johnson supporting doing so. cameron's interpretations of borisjohnson supporting leave are quite stark. he said yes, it is
about sovereignty and a relationship with the european union but he came to the conclusion that in order to further his career and a win over the support of the conservative membership he had to come up for a leaf even if he believed at the time that leeds would lose the referendum. supporters of boris johnson have come out today, the brexit secretary stephen barclay has said he does believe strongly that his boss believes in brexit and is determined to deliver brexit on the sist determined to deliver brexit on the 31st of october. but he mentioned michael gove, he described him in this newspaper extract that has been put out today as a form select faragist who left to the truth at home. particularly in reference to immigration that michael gove talked about during the referendum. he said he was shocked at priti patel has been on the andrew marr programme and she was asked what she made of
david cameron's comments.” and she was asked what she made of david cameron's comments. i was a minister in david cameron's government and it was a privilege to serve in that government and i enjoyed working with him. the referendum has happened, we have all moved on and we are now working to deliver that referendum mandate. that is so important, there is no point going over the past. he said he left the truth at home during that campaign, it is a very serious thing to say. every talk about the issues we are now speaking about in terms of delivering brexit, many of thoseissues terms of delivering brexit, many of those issues went to the heart of the vote to leave in 2016. whether it was taking control back of our borders, our laws, our money, those issues are still prevalent to the debate and discussion today. we are now back with politics at a vengeance. we are now back with politics at a vengeance. there is potential on some movement with the brexit relationship with attempts to
negotiate a departure deal, that is going to be back in the frame with the meetings in brussels and luxembourg tomorrow.|j the meetings in brussels and luxembourg tomorrow. i detect the sense that the government is trying to now really talk up the prospect ofa to now really talk up the prospect of a deal being done. priti patel and stephen barclay were talking about a landing zone coming into view. there is this face—to—face meeting between borisjohnson and the european commission president in luxembourg tomorrow. officials have been involved in talks for some time. the talk is now they are working on an alternative to that very controversial arrangement, the northern ireland backstop. the initial proposalfor northern ireland backstop. the initial proposal for that was only applying to the island of ireland. theresa may requested uk wide solution because she needed the support of the dup. supposedly boris johnson has put forward a proposal that means agricultural products could travel freely across that border but others rules and regulations would not apply. the dup
will be pretty important to backing such an idea and they push back quite strongly on the idea there would be a body down the irish sea early in the week. although boris johnson says he is cautiously optimistic, michael barnier said the other day there are no grounds whatsoever for optimism. we will wait to see what emerges in the coming day but certainly i do detect this growing sense in downing street, anyway, that they might be close to a breakthrough. but then again, they might be talking it up. they have six weeks to find out, don't they? yes, less than 50 days to go. boris johnson don't they? yes, less than 50 days to go. borisjohnson determined to ta ke to go. borisjohnson determined to take the country out on the 31st of october in spite of the piece of legislation passed by the house of commons which requires him to seek a further delay to brexit it hasn't sorted a deal by the 19th of october. the talk of westminster at the moment is how can he possibly get around that law? there are potentially very different tactics
are being discussed. it has been a busy few weeks and it is going to get more so as we head towards the deadline. it is indeed. we are envious of jonathan blake deadline. it is indeed. we are envious ofjonathan blake down by the seaside, i know he is working very hard. the liberal democrat leaderjo swinson has reitterated her belief that ‘there is no good brexit deal‘. she was speaking to the bbc as delegates at the party's annual conference in bournemouth prepare to consider a motion to revoke article 50 if the lib dems win a general election. let's go live to our political correspondent jonathan blake who's at the conference. you have got a lovely, lovely morning for it. i bet you can't tear yourself away from that view to go into the conference timber but you will have two. what chances is the sport going to get through today? —— vote. it is highly likely lib dems
members will overwhelmingly support jo swinson to make the brexit policy unequivocal. she wants to go into a general election campaign, promise if the lib dems were to win a majority and be able to form a government, that they would revoke article 50 thereby cancelling brexit straightaway without holding another referendum. the pa rty‘s straightaway without holding another referendum. the party's overall policy is still to campaign to hold another public vote but they say thatis another public vote but they say that is highly unlikely at the moment and going into an election they want to be absolutely clear that a vote for the liberal democrats would stop exit out right. there may well be concerns when this policy is debated in the conference a little later today, that it might seem a little later today, that it might seem anti—democratic to in effect, overturn the results. i am sorry to sayjonathan overturn the results. i am sorry to say jonathan blake has overturn the results. i am sorry to sayjonathan blake has frozen in bournemouth which i don't think means he has really frozen but i am
afraid our connection has packed up. we will try to get him back, if we cannot we'll move on to some of the other news. the us secretary of state, mike pompeo, has blamed iran for the drone strikes that set fire to two major oil facilities in saudi arabia. houthi rebels in yemen said they carried out the attacks, but in a tweet pompeo said there was "no evidence" the drones came from yemen — describing the attack as "an unprecedented attack on the world's energy supply". saudi arabia's energy minister said half of the country's oil production had been temporarily stopped. foreign media reports say they could have a significant impact on world oil prices. our business correspondent katie prescott is here. first of all, the significance of the facilities that were attacked by whoever attacked them? the facilities that were attacked by whoever attacked them ?|j the facilities that were attacked by whoever attacked them? i think the word unprecedented is right, we are talking about two major facilities of the world's biggest oil producer, responsible for a 10% of the world oil supply. sorry, 7%. the oilfield
in question provides 1%. so anything to damage them at all would be hugely significant and now we have learnt over last night it is knocked off—line, we are not producing 5% of the world's oil as a result and it seems it could take weeks to get this back to capacity. having said all that, giving the size of them, it looks like they might be able to cover off some of this production disruptionjust cover off some of this production disruption just because of the stockpiles they have of oil themselves. what i think it's really interesting is not because it is such a major attack but what it says about risks to this region which is so critical to our energy infrastructure. that is a very important point about the potential for disruption. we have talked in the past about how you can disrupt oil supplies by sea, by blocking the streets of hammers —— straits of
hamuz. it could be a benefit to iran 01’ hamuz. it could be a benefit to iran or if it isn't around, there was hostile to the saudi regime. it could have a big impact on the rest of the world. and using a drone, the fa ct of the world. and using a drone, the fact they could have succeeded against one of the worlds largest oil companies and richest companies is quite extraordinary. it is worrying investors now head of the weekend. it will be interesting to see what happens to the price of oil. we are expecting a spike come monday morning because of all of this. people are concerned about the facilities but what could happen more probably going for it. thank you very much. the former wales rugby captain gareth thomas has revealed he is living with hiv. he says he wants to break the stigma surrounding the condition and has talked about the shame and fear of keeping it secret. daniel davies reports. i've got hiv, and it's ok, like,
that is what i want to learn more than anything. it is a secret he has tried to keep to himself and those closest to him. but now gareth thomas is telling the world and embarking on a new challenge. he has trained for an ultra endurance ironman triathlon to show he isn't limited by his condition. a bbc documentary shows him preparing for the event and preparing to reveal that for some time he has lived with hiv. a huge hero in our family. he talks of the shame he says he felt, and of the worry of what people would think of him if they knew. one of my fears is that...that will kind of go and all of a sudden who i was prior to people knowing i have hiv might be forgotten and that will potentially deter people from wanting to be associated
or be around me. thomas, a5, says he wants to help overcome the stigma surrounding hiv. he has compared the experience of making this announcement to coming out as gay, which he did ten years ago. i want to empower so many other people who are in exactly the same position as me, and probably ten times worse, to be able to feel free as well. gareth thomas there on living with hiv. the headlines on bbc news... david cameron accuses borisjohnson of only backing leave, in order to further his own political career. former conservative minister sam gyimah defects to the liberal democrats, after he lost the tory whip, for rebelling over brexit. the former international rugby star, gareth thomas, reveals he is hiv positive — saying he wants to help reduce
the stigma around the condition. sport and for a full round up, from the bbc sport centre, here's hugh. tyson fury is having microsurgery in a las vegas hospital after suffering a brutal cut in his win over swedish heavyweight otto wallin on a unanimous points decision. fury entered the ring in a sombrero and poncho to celebrate mexico's independence day... and the early exchanges that followed led to fury suffering a deep cut over his right eye in the third round which threatened to ruin his unbeaten record. several times the referee had to ask the british fighter to cover it up while also asking the doctor to check it but fury eventually prevailed... they were two of the worst cuts i had ever seen in a fight where the quys had ever seen in a fight where the guys were one, two, 3a 5678 nine,
nine rounds he went through with these wounds, these gaping gashes. quite extraordinary. he never panicked once. he did dab relentlessly and repeatedly at the eye but he didn't panic and that is just as well. we have loads of cliches in boxing. as they say, otto wallin came to fight and went down swinging so tyson had to dig deep, go back to the corner, try and be calm as the cuts were healed momentarily for the next round. there was no panic but it was really tough throughout. just about 45 minutes until they are back on at the oval. england will hope to eke out as many runs as possible this morning as they try and win the final ashes test. they have a lead of 382 over australia with two second innings wickets remaining... resuming on 313 for 8.
even though australia have retained the ashes, an england victory at the oval will level the series. we have spoken about the fact that we desperately want to win the test match and finish the series as outright winners but at the same time we are proud of what we have done and the fact we are taking the urn home, that was the primary goal of why we came here. to tick that off has been fantastic. europe's golfers have not lost the final day at the solheim cup for any of the past four tournaments. they will have to win today if they are to ta ke will have to win today if they are to take the trophy from the usa. they are level at eight point each, the americans came out on top yesterday afternoon. play begins at 11 o'clock. liverpool has 100% record after beating newcastle. city suffered a

"stand with hong kong" is what they are shouting. many people are raising their hands because they have five demands. the government have given into one. they have withdrawn the controversial bill that sparked
off the protest three months ago. but still, the protesters want more. in particular they want free elections here. they don't like being given a short list of pro—beijing candidates and so people will be on the march here today. a bit of a carnival atmosphere at the moment. lots of families but what we have seen over the past three months now is that as the big crowds melt away, hard—core protesters come out and there are clashes with the police so we will have to see whether that happens again today, but it is clear that lots of people on the streets, even though the police have tried to ban this, and they warned that anyone here today technically is breaking the law but as you can see, that seems to have little impact here in hong kong. let's ta ke let's take a look at the scene now in hong kong. they are relocating their shot giving you a higher view, i think what you can see is tear gas
canisters which have been fired by police to try and disperse those protesters. this is close to the district of hong kong where the people's liberation is army headquarters are located. that is a building that protesters will be keen to target. that though is the vapour from tear gas. we keen to target. that though is the vapourfrom tear gas. we had seen reports that police were firing tear gas to try and break up protesters. near the headquarters of the people's liberation army, that would be some suggestion that has been the case and that certainly doesn't look quite as busy or noisy as some of the other protests have looked. elsewhere in the territory, some of these protests have been quite violent, on occasions and direct confrontations between police and some of the protesters at the airport and the metro system, two exa m ples airport and the metro system, two examples that come immediately to
mind. these protests are settling into something of a pattern which authorities are managing as best as they think they can. so far no one has died but obviously that is the fear on both sides that there could, if given the tensions between protesters, police and authorities, the potential for a fatality. protesters, police and authorities, the potentialfor a fatality. that is the scene in hong kong this morning, we will bring you the latest as we have it. the clear—up operation is continuing, after parts of southern spain experienced some of the heaviest rainfall on record. six people have lost their lives. the spanish prime minister, on a visit to the area, promised to do everything he could to help those affected. simonjones reports. this is the dramatic moment a baby is rescued after the child's home became cut off by the rising water. others clung on for safety as emergency workers navigated the flooding. the force of the water can be seen here in alicante, cars simply swept away as the river
burst its banks. the spanish prime minister flew over some of the affected areas. when he touched down, he promised support. translation: first of all, i want to express the support of the spanish government and, i would add, the whole of the spanish people, to those affected in valencia and murcia and other areas of spain. secondly, i want to express on behalf of the government our condolences to the families of those victims who unfortunately lost their lives in the past few days. thousands of people were evacuated from their homes. when they returned to survey the damage it was all too much for some. translation: the force of the rain slowly became heavier. more of the running water came down and at one point it started rising to the level of the garden and up to the house. and, of course, there was a point where we decided to go up to the attic because we saw
it was getting quite serious and we thought it would be best. the water levels remain dangerously high. for holiday—makers flying in, hoping for some spanish sunshine, at the airport there was chaos and confusion. because of the storms we got diverted to valencia and we were in valencia for what, how long? four hours. so we are now stuck here for another four hours so it's going to be eight hours in total. we don't how we're going to get to our apartment. but many here are relieved they escaped with their lives. the forecast may be improving but the clean—up operation won't be quick. simon jones, bbc news. a charity rescue ship has arrived at the italian island of lampedusa, after the country agreed to let it drop off 82 migrants picked up at sea. it's the first time the italian government has allowed a migrant rescue vessel to dock for several months. most of those on—board will be taken to other european countries with 2a of the migrants expected
to remain in italy. a new storm has brought heavy rain to the bahamas almost two weeks after hurricane dorian claimed at least 50 lives and devastated the islands. tropical storm humberto is slowly moving north and is expected to become a hurricane either tonight or tomorrow morning. emergency services say 1,300 people remain missing across the bahamas. a group of teenagers who fled the taliban in afghanistan and came to the uk as refugees have found a passion and togetherness through cricket. a year ago the luton blue tigers started with no facilities and no equipment but now they are winning games and gaining a belief in themselves. james burridge reports. james, come and meet my team. the most passionate cricketers you are ever going to come across. that's it, lads, well done! passionate cricketers with an incredible story. these teenagers are refugees from afghanistan who have been turned into a team by their inspirational
coach, amran malik. this is shahid. hi, shahid, how are you doing? he is a member of our team. we didn't have nothing but now he is making teams and the matches for us to play cricket. cricket changed my life. amran works with 150 boys and girls from 25 different ethnicities across luton. he knows what it is like to feel like an outsider. his family originally came from pakistan. when i look into their eyes i see, you know, not only are they being isolated and vulnerable but i also see a lot of fear. it almost brought up my own background because being born and raised in luton, there was a lot of racism. these young kids are in the same position where i was once upon a time and if i can help them overcome and face these challenges, and give them a pathway, then i would have thought i've done a good job.
training over, now it gets real. they're off to play their first match against a local village side. they have called themselves the luton blue tigers. they have come to one of the most beautiful and picturesque grounds in the country, south hill park in bedfordshire but can they win? yes! yes, come on, lads! you can do this! they win the match in the last over. yes! a result, that means everything. skipper's innings! everyone did good, i am proud of everyone but, inshallah, next time. the cap fits for the skipper, a moment to savour.
