‘ park is laura. it is me in the car park and it is very cold. enjoyed this week's brexit cast. enjoy this week's brexit cast. tonight at ten — labour and the conservatives both promise a big boost in spending as they set out their economic plans for the country. labour pledges to invest hundreds of billions of pounds in infrastructure like schools, hello, it is adamant brexit cast. hospitals and transport. that means investment on a scale never seen before in this country, and certainly never seen before in the north and outside hello, it is adamant brexit castm is me in the car park in lancashire of london and the south—east. the conservatives accuse labour of spraying money around like confetti, andi is me in the car park in lancashire and i have some real temptation but they've promised to spend billions more too, because we are and one of our advancement of this real temptation improving public services. to beep the horn. would you dare me?
there will be new hospitals, schools, railways, better broadband, all right, i'm going do it. it was new connections and opportunities for every part of our great nation. like a little noise and i'll blame we'll have the latest from the campaign trail, and we'll be analysing those commitments on the economy. you three if i get confronted about also tonight... it stop you looks on the horn, to shut us up. is brexit the horn that is not beeped in this whole brexit discussion? it kind of has. it's the first week, but make it kind of has. yet, it has, in the first few days ofjeremy yet, it has, in the first few days of jeremy corbyn yet, it has, in the first few days ofjeremy corbyn giving the biggest speech which as brexit cast news comes as the source speech which as brexit cast news comes as the source of agony for the party and any time boris johnson gets near a microphone, he is ready with the slogan, so there's
definitely a backdrop to all of it andi definitely a backdrop to all of it and i was going to talk about it in and i was going to talk about it in a bit more detail but it has not become a huge source of things that have driven the campaign even though they have absolutely had lots of conversations about it considering the parties have discovered that they are not really in control. borisjohnson they are not really in control. boris johnson plus they are not really in control. borisjohnson plus plus first rally on the day of the campaign was all about his amazing brexit policy in these gentlemen who can get it done. ling into labour for there's these gentlemen who can get it done. ling into labourfor there's —— laying into labour. the tories are trying to make brexit the solution to every problem. by the goes even written on the step that the prime minister stood behind last night, get brexit done to use the slogan. and we are well aware that if the uk does leaving the next few months, there is plenty of more brexit cast to come. trying to get that done and
the other stuff can be a big part of the other stuff can be a big part of the national conversation again because perhaps brexit will be there with the discussion about the long—term arrangement, but perhaps the kind of pecking order of discussion points in politics. and yes, it has been the most recent debate. and the different policies, if borisjohnson does debate. and the different policies, if boris johnson does get a majority, then we will leave the european union in january. majority, then we will leave the european union injanuary. that is the government's policy and with the other parties are saying is that if you choose the path to another referendum, there might be a brexit or there might not be brexit, or if you're the lib dems, you're absolutely going out to not try and stop it. so that is the big contrast point in the election that voters have to choose from, so even though there is a lot of things i will come up there is a lot of things i will come up in the campaign, fundamental
differences between how they will resolve brexit are at the core of the campaign. and remember, even if the campaign. and remember, even if the campaign. and remember, even if the campaign gets blown off course and turns into a discussion about all sorts of other things, just like what happened to 2017, the result on friday the 13th will be what determines what happens, so whether you like it or not, suppose brexit cast, the brexit election in the end, but goodness knows what else happened in the middle. today are bubbled all of this discussion about the remaining alliance in this announcement from the liberal democrats about throwing their lot in together in total and just having the strongest parties candidates and the strongest parties candidates and the kind of things that gets people excited is, i was struck by two things mystery. the number of two seats that managed to stand someone
down there was a long—standing cabinet member who was being told that they cannot stand and yet, the analyser of all things politics. when you look at the numbers in terms of how many votes the greens got ina terms of how many votes the greens got in a particular sequence or the lib dems, outside of wales, and this conversation. the numbers are often pretty small and this time might be different last time, but last time around, none of those seats will eventually change the results, i might‘ve changed the maps a little bit and there was a packed in and arrangement in oxford west, but it would not have made a difference, it is intriguing and of no consequent subtle. it has gone wrong the bit already because one candidate has said, he is so annoyed that he is
going to run as an independent. in the whole process is cancelled itself out already. or maybe not, who knows? but actually, one of the big questions about the selection is that the tories think that they can be victorious if they hold the vote together and the remaining vote splits and fractures. if the lib dems and labour work together know this, it can be transformational, but there is no chance of that at all, so one of those things that people are really excited about the subbing for a second victim —— second referendum, you have labour voters that voted in favour of brexit but remained low to the labour party conservative party and the of the parties saying that will stand 600 areas and that could be
splitting the vote and taking the votes away from the conservatives as well, isn't it? while outwardly for the last week or so, the various events that nigel faraj has done is he has talked about taking the fight the conservatives and labour in all of the rest of it, locally, we are seeing quite a few examples of the brexit party candidates saying well, iam not brexit party candidates saying well, i am not sure if this is the right thing to do. it struck me as an event that the brexit party did that we re event that the brexit party did that were nigel faraj said, this is not brexit to describe the deal, there was polite applause but not a standing ovation and there is an internal conversation still going on about whether or not from their perspective, this could be counterproductive. and there are a lot of tory mps pushing really hard back. so it would be really big for borisjohnson, a
back. so it would be really big for boris johnson, a really back. so it would be really big for borisjohnson, a really big problem if members of the burning core of your sceptics had still been kind of flirting with the brexit party that they have been pushing back really ha rd they have been pushing back really hard because they reckon that if the brexit party does well then brexit might slip away altogether but you wa nt might slip away altogether but you want not suggesting that he overpromise the political impact they might have, are you? i'mjust going to take that out of my tea. still make you do not want that to be too strong. it is already very strong, you can stand the spoon up in that already. day by day, blow— by— blow. people are thinking come up with this end up in parliament, what is the apartment going to look like, is going to be borisjohnson, it's all unpredictable. you are not the only one with questions because the bbc
is running this thing called your questions answered come if you go to the website, typing your questions you can ask a question and someone famous from the bbc, such as us, will answerfor you. famous from the bbc, such as us, will answer for you. semi-famous. read. thomas says, how can the labour party claimed they will negotiate a new deal with the eu and put it to the country and referendum a quick discussion for the conservatives and for labour, whether or not to be entirely realistic about the timeframe. having the referendum and six in the conservative idea of getting a you
legally but then securing a long—term deal by the end of the current transition period set by the majority agreement by the end of 2020. can you do that process which has taken a longer time than one year. yet,. how can the labour party claim that they can do that was yellow the king's college constitutional unit, somebody somewhere, i'm sorry if i got 24 weeks is the quickest way you can do it comes about six months because yet that the legislation passed and you in time for the electoral machinery to gear up in campaigns to be designated, joseph two take about ten weeks and a statutory period of campaigning to but in the 12 weeks, sick and probably do it as quickly as possible in 24 weeks. tiny side
bar, you need the eu to reopen the withdrawal agreement and renegotiate in the three months because labour is saying three months, three months. in the real negotiate for three months and within six months, they have this referendum and again, we are back to two to tango, so you have to do it with brussels. we they swore they could do it in that time because all the contact they have had with brussels and on the euro start they were sure that they could do it. that said, it is an election and they were promised all sorts of things. and actually, what happens next week with the brexit will be determined by which party gets the most seats in the house of commons. both of those parties have had some pretty crunchy terms this week with those selected to do that job as a traditional candidate car crash and particularly because this is a snap
election and people have been selected quickly, we have seen about the tory side, some people, things they have set in the past emerging. particularly with social media for their frantically googling everything anyone has a reset. both parties have had some serious problems this week. and the candidates that may have been selected five minutes ago during broadcast interviews, it is also people that we are familiar with, like jacob reese mogg, appearing on obesity and talking about the g re nfell tower obesity and talking about the grenfell tower fire. —— on obesity and talking about the grenfell towerfire. —— on bc. go to make it just seems grenfell towerfire. —— on bc. go to make itjust seems that grenfell towerfire. —— on bc. go to make it just seems that the grenfell towerfire. —— on bc. go to make itjust seems that the common sense thing to do and it is such a tragedy that didn't happen. 0 apology not long after, followed by another conservative trying to
explain away the context and then apologising himself. and i suppose thatis apologising himself. and i suppose that is so damaging for the conservatives because the biggest fear is being labelled as the nasty party and it could seem condescending to another element of society is something that needs to be squished quickly. do you think they have successfully squashed it? i think that was really misjudged statements that actually had a lot of, it was everywhere, very offensive to a lot of people and i think there might well be one of the things that is remembered. it is still everywhere on social media, the musicians stormzy was incensed by it. remind me of all of the left wing in 2005 who said something
about —— oliver. and is similar incident in somerset where he said to stay there until new year's day. we have a special guestjoining us for the first of my brexit cast. we have seen them on the airwaves all over the place, our media editor who joins us from the balcony. hello. all the stock my brakes is making me feel very old. i think we have found the one outlet on bbc you have not on before. the thing is, you have been scouring the entire internet. you know the happy days we could follow campaign literature and
pamphlets and that was when the election was. i was nice. mostly it happens online nowadays there is a huge amount of action online, the virus of the gets shared by lots of people, some of the true and some not in there the advertisements, the party and other countries have worked out the advertisement billboards and newspapers are slow and expensive so there's a huge amount of activity with ads in terms of viral content and e—mails and it is keeping people very busy. have you got some exhibits to show us? some arguable ones. discussed a bit ofa some arguable ones. discussed a bit of a stir this week. the first i wa nted of a stir this week. the first i wanted to share with you as a campaign video put out by the conservative party from the official twitter account which basically replayed that in edited way, an interview surfaced and given to good morning britain, this is a conservative video.
that uplifting music according to some is notable for the fact that it is attended to by silence but if you listen to the original video, you find that they put the question about the nature of his negotiations to him and he actually gives a response. check this out. why would the eu give you a good deal if they know you're going to actively campaign against it? well, i have been talking to the eu to the political leaders across the 27 countries for three years and i knew very well with the parameters are of any deal that they would do with a labour government. the video gets widely shared in any kind of apology oi’ widely shared in any kind of apology or explanation afterwards does not
and this is the perennial challenge. if you draw attention to a falsehood, the nature of modern media campaigning in the nature of the internet is because a lot of the nuance does not come through, what happens is the original postjust get seen by more people. the conservatives that video out which was a doctored video and when pointed out by people like my bbc colleague, but the headquarters did was they put out the original video and said check this out. and what they got was noise what matters in digital campaigns is not nuance, not necessarily the efficacy of your argument, it is about creating noise and putting a blitzkrieg through the airwaves and drying it off with this general message. some the people who i've spoken to was actually, yes we got called out for doctoring the video and some people in cch q got called out for doctoring the video and some people in cch 0 so the fact that we are talking about
it isa the fact that we are talking about it is a victory. let us talk about ian austen. this is quite a moment, a guy who spent his life in the labour party, listen till february we decided that he did not like jeremy corbyn possible stuff about anti—semitism. it has been labour labour and more labour and also it's of roles for years and then he goes on to the programme and says this. the country vote is a big voice, only can be prime minister, jeremy corbyn or borisjohnson i think jeremy corbyn is completely unfit to lead our country in the labour party. i tell them that that they they should be voting for boris johnson of the selection. my life, i can't believe it's come to this. johnson of the selection. my life, i can't believe it's come to thism was an astonishing thing to hear,
there's no love lost betweenjeremy corbyn and him. ian austen quit the labour party not so long ago, he has been seen as an independent and has decided to stand down. at the suggestion that he is not a labour man is for the birds. he was one of gordon brown's key henchmen and for him to come to this conclusion and feel that he had to say this publicly is an astonishing journey to me that he is deeply, and deeply unhappy. people been talking about today and it plays into this wider sense of the labour party that many people fear that people just do not wa nt people fear that people just do not want to trust jeremy corbyn and it is not because he has tried to close down the anti—semitism problem, but it had been going on for years and
the leadership is still again, and again accused of not doing enough, really having a hard time grappling with this. quitting the labour party tojoin the lib dems, being a jewish female labourmp, we tojoin the lib dems, being a jewish female labour mp, we had another one who decided to leave, margaret hodge who decided to leave, margaret hodge who has been furious about what she sees asjeremy who has been furious about what she sees as jeremy corbyn possible his inability to deal with this. they said it was on the reasons why they fear people just do not want to trustjeremy corbyn fear people just do not want to trust jeremy corbyn and that is someone trust jeremy corbyn and that is someone who has been loyal to him and still part of team and on the doorsteps, they really worry that people just will not put their trust in him in and enough number. we will see everyday this campaign, jeremy corbyn's really devoted fans and supporters, absolutely he has one constituency right there behind him. but it is not the position that the labour party wants to be talking about and he isjust one man who
fell out with the cabinet a long time ago but it matters in the issue really matters. labour mps do worry, sorry, not mps any more, this want to come back as labour mps really worry that some constituencies make make the difference between losing them and holding them because jewish vote rs them and holding them because jewish voters will not go anywhere near them. what i'm hearing on the european side is that while the eu is trying to not just figure out what kind of government is going to come out of the selection board kind of parliament is going to come out of parliament is going to come out of the selection because they are going to try to ratify a deal if brexit is going to happen. the question is, she left a few months ago, but tom watson, the deputy leader left for personal reasons but many also think he has to deal with the idea that he thinks the parties going ina the idea that he thinks the parties going in a different direction and
by their female moderate mps leaving the conservative party at of the selection, is it true that both parties, labour and conservative are realigning here and moving, may be the conservatives more to the right and labour more to the left? is it that clear—cut? and labour more to the left? is it that clear-cut? on both sites within the two party false, they react to these kinds of moments, that they will both point to the fact that there party feels more united than it did. those of a particular strand of view, the conservative conversation in the labour one, they are deciding to leave the stage and so the remainder of a more solidified perspective one particular view. and you see this in any election because when you select the candidates, it is of course an opportunity for the leaders to make the party more in their own image. soa the party more in their own image. so a part of it is natural
unhappiness, but i think it is the case that both are becoming narrow, churches, but also does talk to something that is going on in this election where both of the parties seemed further apart, both of the parties seem to have evolved partly because of brexit another reasons, but it seems labour candidates, women talk to someone on the doorstep with the east midlands, and they told the story about how is what is said to them, ijust don't feel you're in the what is said to them, ijust don't feelyou're in the middle. we what is said to them, ijust don't feel you're in the middle. we do not know what parliament will be in the end, there still lots of people in the labour party and in the tory party would very much see themselves as being middle ground but i think people are feeling that in so many people are feeling that in so many people talk about not knowing who to vote for this time and by the other parties, the lib dems see it as an opportunity for them. and every night on the bbc news channel at 830, you will be seeing election
cast. the election themed cousin of brexit cast. and if you want to listen to need podcast coming just download the app on your phone and listen to us. you'll be listening to us. minus and boris the berlin bear. but you will be back next thursday. think of azurejoining but you will be back next thursday. think of azure joining us. enjoy that t, laura. i did not get to show you around my van, the wheeling case in the back and our snacks and everything, you did not even ask me. i was ready for a guided tour. do not ask me to do it again. goodbye.
hello. after the rain we had during thursday, there are no doubts that there are some parts that the uk they could do with a bit of time to dry out. some places that will be looking for a drive forecast for the week ahead, this is the long—range forecast i have to say there is more rain to come, but i will bring you the details of the next three minutes. in the meantime, here's the swirl of cloud, the area of low pressure that brought all the rain during thursday. it was this cloud here they became particularly slow moving into sport england and the midlands. now, the amber warnings for the mets office expiring as again the friday morning, you can see those still some sherry rain drifting across eastern england, but generally speaking, friday is a quieter day. drier, brighter with some sunshine, still feeling rather chilly with the top temperatures of 6 degrees in glasgow, 11 in cardiff and plymouth. as go through friday night,
still some showers plaguing east anglia in the southeast for a time but essentially, you see a window of clear skies moving through and some freezing fog patches as temperatures dip away. quite a widespread frost to take saturday morning with the temperatures in the towns and cities. notice out west that things start to turn a little milder by the end of the night that is because here comes our next change from the frontal system that will bring outbreaks of rain. yes, more rain, although this should not hang around quite as long for the next 24 hours or so. so this forecast, the ring pushing from the west, but there is an added complication that springing some cold air across the high ground and wales, above 300 metres that could be some snow, could cause some problems and some of the roads, there are roads that are at that kind of level and we could see something when treating into the midlands depending on exactly the shape this weather system takes as it starts to push her way southwards. so some rain and perhaps in hills and snow clearing away into sunday, and then sunday is one of the quieter days
with spots of sunshine once in the early mist has cleared. single digits for most of us from 6—9, may be ten the force of less. ten the far southwest. as we move into sunday to monday, here comes another frontal system pushing from the west and the sun is moving, so no one play should see too much in the way of rain, so almost all of us can expect some weather on monday. still the potential for some wintryness mixed in over hills in the north and some showers pushing in from the northwest later in the day and those temperatures again in the range of six to 10 degrees. we look ahead to tuesday, hard to be too precise in the details of this range, but it looks like we'll see a mixture of sunny spells and showers most frequent up towards the northwest with signs of drier interludes during the south and temperatures between six and 10 degrees. but if you're looking for a prolonged spell of dry weather, you probably do not want to see a chart like this, the jet stream still as we head
to the middle and latter part of next week racing across the atlantic, bringing further areas of low pressure in our direction. it looks like the areas of low pressure certainly will be affecting northern and western areas this is where we will see the wettest weather and high pressure will always be quite close by and that means there should be some drier interludes and we get those drier interludes by night, the nights are likely to get quite chilly. so through the latter part of next week, still some wind and rain at times, there will still be some drier interludes and some frosty nights but for those places that are looking for drier outlook, there's still some 00:28:32,076 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 more rain on the way.
