11:30 pm
this is bbc news i'm nuala mcgovern. ofthe of the uk sn’f he: uk ”ituf the north and east of the uk staying dry, with sunny spells around. now, brazil's former president, luiz inaio lula da silva walks this latest area of wet weather, free from prison. still affecting parts of england and wales on saturday evening, slowly a crowd of jubilant supporters met the former president pulling away south. the cloud means as he leftjail, despite being convicted on corruption charges, the frost going into sunday morning after a court decision freeing is not going to be as widespread as prisoners on appeal. saturday morning, but still, scotland, parts of northern england, northern ireland, wales and maybe former new york city mayor michael bloomberg officially joins the race for the white house the west midlands sea temperatures as the current occupant says there's drop close to if not below freezing in some spots. another gap between no—one he'd rather run against. weather systems on sunday, remembrance sunday. this gap, timed he does not have the magic to do with daylight hours, more useful for us, lots of fine weather on sunday. well. little michael will fail. a good of sunshine around. just a australia battles a record bit of patchy cloud in parts of northern england, maybe towards the number of bushfires. midlands, could produce a light shower. the vast majority will be at least one woman dies as rescuers dry. single figure temperatures for most of us. this gap between weather struggle to reach people in the east of the country. systems doesn't last long. more weather fronts come in. systems doesn't last long. more weatherfronts come in. the systems doesn't last long. more weather fronts come in. the low pressure is quite a way away, but here come the weather fronts moving on. lots of rain falling on night, clearing eastwards on monday. last to clear from east anglia and
11:31 pm
south—east england around about lunchtime, following on behind, a brisket north—westerly flow, see those showers packing in here, and some wittiness into the hills as well. a brisk wind, and without it will even chillier on monday. temperatures for the most part in single figures. a similar picture going into tuesday. the low pressure now just passing to going into tuesday. the low pressure nowjust passing to the north of scotland, again that flow of air from the west and north—west around that, bringing the showers from north—west to the south—east across the uk. most frequent towards the north—west. maybe a bit of hail and some wittiness to the hills. many southern and eastern parts of the uk seeing relatively few showers, temperatures fairly similar. looking into wednesday, another gap between weather systems could well start frosty on wednesday morning, but notice we have more weather fronts with more rain, as they pushed east, summerhill snow coming in. with more rain, as they pushed east, summerhillsnow coming in. so with more rain, as they pushed east, summerhill snow coming in. so you get the idea. when the system after weather system. brief gap ‘s overnight, you could see some frost
11:32 pm
and fog patches around. that is all tied into the pattern of the jet stream. a wavy pattern from north america across the atlantic towards us. america across the atlantic towards us. we find the uk in this step in the jet stream. so the jet stream is to the south of us. that would indicate that it is fairly chilly. we are on the cold side of the jet stream. nestled within that dip in the jet stream is low pressure. so during the remainder of next week, it looks like a fairly slow—moving area of low pressure gradually edging away, and the gap that follows may be brief and allow the hour to turn around to a northerly, and reinforce a chill menace. so, further rain at times next week. some hill snow in places, especially across the northern half of the uk. feeling chilly with temperatures at oi’ feeling chilly with temperatures at or below average. and overnight, when you get clear skies, frosty and some fog around. if you want high—pressure to settle things down, we will have to keep on waiting for now.
11:33 pm
hello. this is bbc news with lukwesa burak. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment — first the headlines. a woman has died after being swept away by flood water as parts of england are hit with a month's worth of rain in one day. the snp launch their election campaign, saying they'd try to form an alliance with other parties to lock the conservatives out of power. an eighteen—year—old boy is jailed for minimum of 12 and half years for the murder of his former girlfriend.
11:34 pm
ten teenagers — including two fifteen—year—old boys — have been named among the 39 people from vietnam who were found dead in a refrigerated lorry in essex. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are james rampton, features writer for the independent and rachel cunliffe, comment and features editor at cityam. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the ‘i' — leads on the severe flooding that has hit parts of england after a month's worth of rain fell in one day in parts of the midlands and the north. the front page of the express focuses on the latest election polls which it says suggests the labour vote is ‘colla psing'
11:35 pm
in the party's traditional hotspots. the telegraph features an interview with former home secretary, lord blunkett, who claims that issues with ‘anti—semitism' and ‘thuggery‘ in the labour party could mean they will see an electoral defeat as bad as their performance in 1983. meanwhile, the mail's front page calls on its readers to ask the leader of the brexit party, nigel farage to stand down so he avoids sabotaging the conservatives‘ chances in the upcoming election. the guardian publishes figures which show the number of patients having surgery in private hospitals that's paid for by the nhs has trebled since 2010. and on the front page of the times is an investigation revealing that google is making millions of pounds from promoting accounts on its search engine, that refer users to ‘potentially fraudulent‘ schemes.
11:36 pm
let's start our chat with election news. on the front page of the telegraph. james. a significant intervention by lord blunkett. exams as if this new momentum is driving lord blunkett to say strong things about this party. he said he despairs the anti—semitism and the thuggery that seems to prevail in much of the party and what is really exercising him is the lack of a realisation that you have raised a big tent of people in order to win. he knows what he is talking about. he worked with tony blair, the most successful legal that meant labour leader ever. and, u nfortu nately, labour leader ever. and, unfortunately, the way in which this particular labour party is drifting
11:37 pm
towards the hard left is potentially locking it out of power for a generation. the deputy leader resigned this week, four senior mps have said you should not vote for jeremy corbyn. it seems the wheels are falling off the campaign and this intervention will only undermine that stop quite a history lesson as well. 1983, margaret thatcher increased the majority from 43 to 144. and it is the same thing. you had a labour party who insisted oi'i you had a labour party who insisted on moving to the hard left and despite what people at the heart of the party thought, they made themselves and elect ball. i think jeremy corbyn and his core team have vitriolic hatred for centrism of new labour as they did for the conservatives. certainly in the way
11:38 pm
they talk about some of these blair writes as if they never had a place in the party anyway. that's fine. you can have ideological purity. but it makes it difficult to get elected when you need to talk to people who don't agree with you. they seem to think that this enthusiasm in the campaign fora kind think that this enthusiasm in the campaign for a kind of gentler politics has not been that much kinder nor gentler recently but they do look like they will be in trouble because if you are only talking to those who agree to you it is hard to convince others to vote. the great lesson of tony blair is that you don't win number 10 without winning liberal ground. it is absolutely crucial that you appeal to the centre ground. you cannot only preach to the converted, those who already agree with you, as you already agree with you, as you already say about the evils of capitalism. if you do not reach
11:39 pm
beyond that audience you will never win. and it seems thatjeremy corbyn is locked into this 1970s socialism that does not resonate yonder very small and vociferous core. and when you look at the article, you do think lessons learned because the comparisons are striking. you have the opposition vote split so you have labour and the liberal sdp alliance. they were also going to devolution at the time, won't they? the labour manifesto was dubbed the longest suicide note in history. and you had divisions within the party as well. and high-profile people quit the party and the response, rather than thinking 0k, what have we done that they feel they need to leave and how can we bring them back, they responded with good riddance. you see a lot of that now which is if you don't want to support us wholeheartedly, we don't wa nt support us wholeheartedly, we don't want you. and that just support us wholeheartedly, we don't want you. and thatjust makes support us wholeheartedly, we don't want you. and that just makes the problem worse. staying with the
11:40 pm
telegraph. the picture on the front page is of borisjohnson in matlock. i think it is opportunistic. things enough for people there already and the site of a prime minister with a mop will only make it worse. he is cashing in on their misery in order to boost his campaign. he did the same thing after the riots in london when he miraculously of paired with the broom outside the station a few yea rs the broom outside the station a few years ago. ijust think it is cynical politics. it is taking the focus away from the tragedy that besets many people there. a woman died today because of the dreadful flooding and what is worse, even this idea that global warming is overtaking us is it seems like the defences are inadequate. they spent £20 million boosting the defences of
11:41 pm
the don river but the waterjust flooded over the top. it shows that even though we are taking some precautions, it is not enough and with a rapidly changing climate will it ever be? we all knew that the floods were significant but it says that in the peak district, 4.4 inches of rain, 2.3 in sheffield and the average monthly rainfall is 3.5. they are getting one months worth of rain ina they are getting one months worth of rain in a single day. let's stick with a different picture of the floods in another paper but you mention the cartoon. i don't know if you can see there, but it says that some parts of the uk have had a years worth of spending pledges. i see what he means there because we had two politicians yesterday talking about their plans for the
11:42 pm
economy and suddenly both of them have a magic tree. we saw pledges left right and enter and this is obviously a borisjohnson left right and enter and this is obviously a boris johnson campaign to shower parts of the country and public services with money in the run—up to the election. money that they definitely need. i am not saying we should not spend more on public services. but the conservative government saying we can balance the books and we need to be careful, philip hammond saying you cannot have the money and suddenly, they are not that party anymore. it is a short term election picture that may backfire the next time tories want to argue that labour are reckless. the irony is thatjoe swinson said yesterday if we stay in the eu the calculations are that we will be £50 billion richer and we will have more money to spend on public service. so if we achieve brexit, god forbid a hard brexit, there will be much less money to splurge on, what to me, a
11:43 pm
fictional pledges anyway. there is so fictional pledges anyway. there is so much money that they are throwing away that it is impossible to ever find without going to into the most horrendous dead which is what got us into the problem in the first place. quite diplomatic. let's turn to the i. it took me a close look to work out what this picture is of. it is an aerial view of a street that is entirely underwater. these back gardens look like they are in the middle of a river and it gives you a sense of the human impact of this. this is notjust however many inches of rainfall, this is looking at all of rainfall, this is looking at all of those houses, the ground floors have been flooded. 0ther of those houses, the ground floors have been flooded. other people 0k? 0ne have been flooded. other people 0k? one woman has died already. it shows you the four that one day's worth of
11:44 pm
rain can have on the lives of people. it will take months, years to repair. and people, particularly the american right wing, say there is no such thing as climate change, that it was invented by the chinese to gain economic benefit. you look at this picture and listen to the terrible stories of suffering and tragedy that have afflicted people today and say how can you say? is so offensive. we have to do something about it all there will be more and more terrible stories like this. u nfortu nately more terrible stories like this. unfortunately there is more rainfall forecast as well. we have not hit peak forecast as well. we have not hit pea k levels forecast as well. we have not hit peak levels yet. looking now at the guardian. the prime minister has misled or did the misleading? both. both, perhaps. we were talking about what a dreadful start of the campaign labour has had, which is true. the conservatives have not had the best start to the campaign either. and given that they wanted
11:45 pm
the selection you might hope that they would do better. this is a video surfacing of borisjohnson speaking in northern ireland earlier this week and where he seems to have some misconceptions about his own brexit deal because he said that business would not need to fill in extra paperwork and there have been a debate over the checks at the border and if they will face additional processes, what does that mean? does that mean checks? obviously i think the question here is that borisjohnson has called the selection with a message that he achieved a brexit deal that he says is better than that of theresa may. parliament was stopping him from enacting it and he could get brexit done. vote for a new parliament, but for his deal and he will get it done. now it seems that he is not entirely clear on the detail. it is complicated. it turns out that exporting goods and keeping track of
11:46 pm
goods across borders is a complicated issue so i have sympathy with him there. would something like this four on his chances at the ballot box? i am afraid that is priced into the deal. people expect him to, as has been said, to make up things as it goes along. it reminds me of dominic road saying he was surprised when he learned how important the dover calais link was. it is extraordinary the boris johnson seems to be able to just magic ideas out of nowhere and a ccu ra cy magic ideas out of nowhere and accuracy and fact checking and everything totally go by the board. if you watch a video was this last night you would be totally disabused of the notion that he is a great public speaker. it was rambling and incoherent and he seemed to be plucking ideas out of nowhere. he said you put all the forms in the m, said you put all the forms in the in, an absolute contradiction of what his own secretary has said in front of parliamentary committee a couple of weeks ago. they will need
11:47 pm
customs forms if they are exporting from northern ireland to great britain and that is the delusion. that it will be frictionless trade. it will not be. the other story we want to look but in the guardian ‘s private surgery for nhs patients soars under tories. another key issue the tories will have to get out of in front of comedy nhs. i think borisjohnson wanted to fight this election on the nhs. he has promised a lot of money for the nhs. but nhs. he has promised a lot of money forthe nhs. but this nhs. he has promised a lot of money for the nhs. but this is always a weak point for the conservatives because labour and the snp, as we saw today, come out and say that the conservatives have a secret plan to privatise the nhs and sell it off to donald trump, which they don't, and evenif donald trump, which they don't, and even if boris johnson and donald trump, which they don't, and even if borisjohnson and donald trump wanted to sign an nhs sell—off trade deal, that is not actually how trade deal, that is not actually how trade deals work. it is a powerful line of attack, and the guardian are backing that up with figures that show the number of nhs patients getting their surgeries, their procedures done in private hospitals, has increased, because of
11:48 pm
staff shortages and cuts to nhs hospitals. but i should make it very, very clear that those procedures were still free at the point of use. patients were still getting free healthcare. it wasjust who was providing it. and actually, if you ask voters generally, do you mind who provides your hip replacement or your cataract operation, if it is an nhs hospital or private hospital, most people don't mind, as long as they get the procedure in a relatively short period of time and that everything goes well. but it is going to be a key talking point in this election. look out for those words, selling off the nhs. it is funny how certain phrases become like a lightning conductor, chlorinated chicken is one that springs to mind, you know. suddenly this idea that we are going to get this really disgusting sounding food from the us that wasn't going to be checked properly, iam not wasn't going to be checked properly, i am not entirely sure that was accurate, but it became a trope that labour, quite rightly, from their point of view, hammered away at, and this same thing, chanting at corbyn‘s rallies now, that you won't
11:49 pm
sell—off the nhs, not for sale they keep chanting, as keep chanting, —— sell—off the nhs, not for sale they keep chanting, —— like our supporters used a chance to lock her up at hillary clinton. that has got traction. and if corbyn is strong on anything, it is the nhs. matt hancock, over the past few weeks, the health secretary, has refuted those claims. anyway. let's turn to the financial times. well‘s billion asa the financial times. well‘s billion as a victim of bad press. my heart is so bleeding for these billionaires. i think it is a bit of a weird headline to put on the story. this is the head of ubs, saying that billionaires actually do good for society and the economy. i've heard about before. there are some figures there, there is a report that shows companies run by billionaires do better than those run by less wealthy ceos. obviously still very wealthy chief executives. shares in publicly quoted companies controlled by billionaires rose 178%
11:50 pm
between 2003 and 2018, compared to 9.1%. between 2003 and 2018, compared to 9.196. -- between 2003 and 2018, compared to 9.1%. —— rose 17 point 3%. so that isa 9.1%. —— rose 17 point 3%. so that is a significant point, if your company is being run by a billionaire it will do better, maybe because they are making more long—term decisions because they don't need the money? maybe they are just geniuses, that is why they are being compensated that way? i thought it was interesting. before we run out of time, we are staying with eft, take us to final story. a beautiful picture on the front page of the paper. i think as we go into the memorial weekend, i think it is really a very moving image that the financial times have foregrounded. it is the oldest known poppy from the first world war, picked by private cecil rutten, when he was only 17, in arras, and it is on display in a london jewellers for remembrance sunday. i think it is a beautiful, simple, very elegant but very powerful image. we were talking before about how the british legion has really been very, very
11:51 pm
imaginative in the way it has reinvented our appreciation of the property. i know you've got one, the story you told me earlier was really powerful and resonant, ithought. there it is, there is my little puppy- it there it is, there is my little puppy. it is the codebreakers' collection, this all comes from the royal british legion. each poppy is dedicated to an employee of bletchley park. so mine is dedicated toa bletchley park. so mine is dedicated to a lady called martha brooks. but they have some lovely properties. the thing that attracted me was that they tell a story. i think a lot of they tell a story. i think a lot of the young today have lost the story of the property. so you have one which is the d—day poppy, and that contains in the eye sound from a mosh as well. the whole matter is a lwa ys mosh as well. the whole matter is always lest we forget, and i think the great thing about the british legion has done is ensure that we don't forget. —— mantra. what i emphasised that, the better. and that it isn'tjust wearing a simple, it is thinking about what it represents and behind it, and the
11:52 pm
sort of long history of several wars. well, i have shared the story with my children, just to bring it back. 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 watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, james rampton and rachel cunliffe. goodbye. hello. holly hamilton with your latest sports news. now, it has taken until november eight, but watford have finally won their first game this season, beating norwich

11:57 pm
that caused all the flooding across northern and one has now cleared away, but we're certainly left without a legacy of some very high river levels and flooding are causing disruptions. numerous flood wanting some severe flood warning still in force, anywhere from yorkshire towards leicestershire. our website will keep you up—to—date with the latest on any warnings. what about the weekend? quite a chilly starts at the weekend. some more rain around on saturday. dry on sunday. the rain we are going to see will not be anything like as heavy oi’ will not be anything like as heavy or as slow—moving as the rain that caused all the flooding during the course of thursday and friday. first thing saturday, tablet is well below freezing, even in some towns and cities. albert than that in the countryside. quite a sharp frost around and if you mist and fog patches too. through the day, this wonderment is going to be heading in from the west, bringing rain but also bringing a little bit of sleet and snow over the highest ground, wales in particular, so the hills of the mountain seeing a little bit of wintering us, but certainly at lower levels for northern ireland adults was south—west of england. but is all going to be falling as rain. much of eastern england, central and eastern scotland, dry and fine through the course of the day. some
11:58 pm
patchy rain moving north later in the day, close to those flooded areas, only a few millimetres. certainly nothing like the rainfall that we have seen recently. top temperatures, 6—10 on saturday. feeling fairly chilly. gradually through saturday night, this area of cloud and patchy rain willjust start to clear away towards the south. clearing skies on the north. one or two wintry flurries perhaps over higher ground, across eastern scotland. still a cold night for much of scotland, northern england, northern ireland. not as cold further south, you have got more in the way of cloud cover. sunday is of course remembrance sunday, and the weather is looking fine and dry in most places, if you are heading out to any memorial services. it is looking like a pretty decent day. we have got more rain waiting in the winds, but it should arrive, i think, northern ireland, once the sun has set later on. temperatures 6-10 in sun has set later on. temperatures 6—10 in the sunshine. still quite a fresh feeling, light winds around for remembrance sunday. into monday, and a frontal system pushes away towards the east. it will linger for
