‘ rain ‘rainfall, ‘ rain fall, that ‘rainfall, that are seen lots of rainfall, that are already seen lots of rain fall, that are already flooded. this rain will be heavy and persistent, accompanied by some strong winds, too. however in this area of rain, either side of it there will be a good slice of something drier and brighter, but it will still feel cold. now as we go from thursday into friday, low pressure remains in the driving seat, so it will be another unstable day. quite a lot of cloud around on friday and there will be further outbreaks of rain at times. quite a blustery day once again for many spots. there will be some breaks in the cloud and we should get to see some brightness the further north you go. but these temperatures are below average for the time of year, at best, mid— high single figures. so from friday and on into the weekend, low pressure still in charge, this time working its way up from the near consonant. so bit of a different direction to be coming from, no longer an atlantic system. but it does look as though this was not your and something cool and
north—easterly. further spells of rain at times, some bright, dry intervals to be had but still feeling cold as we go through the day on saturday. and not much changes as we go into sunday. we've still got low pressure in charge, dragging ina still got low pressure in charge, dragging in a north or north—easterly wind, so it is going to feel cold once again and rather like saturday. there will be some dry, bright intervals but a lot of cloud around and at times we are going to see outbreaks of rain and it remains cold with these temperatures once again on the disappointing side. now, as we head into the start of next week, we'll see another ridge of high pressure work its way into start monday. however, what that means it is going to open the floodgates to a more northerly flow, quite a cold direction to be coming from. showery outbreak is well down the north sea coast will feel bitterly cold here. elsewhere, many faces look as though they should remain dry with those of sunshine. further on into next week, low pressure sunshine. further on into next week,
low pressure once sunshine. further on into next week, low pressure once again starts to edge its way in, but this time more ofa edge its way in, but this time more of a southerly direction, bringing spells of rain but with a southerly flow that means temperatures will start to pick up a little, so it will turn a little milder. temperatures back to where they should be for this time of the year. so further spells of rain, it will feel windy and at times quite cold.
hello. this is bbc news with lukwesa burak. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment — first the headlines. ministers announce more support for flood victims in the north of england. some 30 flood warnings remain in place, with more heavy rain forecast, as locals say they feel let down by the official response. communities have been absolutely amazing.
the official people that should have been telling us what to do, get out of your house, move your things, even that it was coming, we had no idea. just a complete contrast. the environment agency says flood defences have reduced some of the impact, prompting more debate about where the money has been spent. life sentences for the parents of six children who murdered two teenage sons a day after trying to poison them. in hong kong, police warn that the rule of law is ‘on the brink of total collapse' after months of pro—democracy protests. and, the spats between raheem sterling and joe gomez are just like a family disagreement, according to the england manager. hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are henry zeffman, political correspondent for the times and kezia dugdale — from the glasgow—based research body, thejohn smith centre for public service, and also, of course, the former scottish labour leader. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the prime minister is to promise a ‘clean energy revolution‘ if the conservative party were to win the general election — that's according to the telegraph. the labour party head the front of the mirror, with their £26 billion pledge to the nhs. the financial times reports that the government have challenged six leading accounting firms on their ability to survive a ‘financial shock‘ in a test of resilience — ahead of a possible industry break up.
the metro leads on a story about an incestual couple who murdered their children and have now beenjailed for at least 35 years each. the daily mail describe ‘the hero who died withoutjustice', after none of the detectives who were involved in the questioning of lord bramall over false child abuse claims have been punished. and the sun report that the duke and duchess of sussex will be breaking tradition by not spending christmas with the queen at sandringham. we are going to start off with the general election and the front page of the mirror. you want to kick us off, henry? the net nhs is at the heart of the campaign but this time much more than usual and the reason is borisjohnson much more than usual and the reason is boris johnson is much more than usual and the reason is borisjohnson is following an atypical path than most tories. it is putting the nhs and the conservative party does make record on the nhs at the heart of his
election pitch and what we have is labour trying to fight back. this is, ina labour trying to fight back. this is, in a speech tomorrow, an offer of £26 billion to what the mirror describes as repair the damage of 20 yea rs of describes as repair the damage of 20 years of tory austerity is. not all of the points around the front page but it includes equipment, more hospitals. it should be seen in the context of the labour party tried to wrestle back the narrative that they other party to vote for if you want investment in the nhs. how does this compare to the tory pledge?m investment in the nhs. how does this compare to the tory pledge? it is definitely a pitch from labour to move it onto. important to point out that the nhs is in england for this context because health is devolved in scotland and wales so it is £26 billion for england's nhs —— nhs. it isa billion for england's nhs —— nhs. it is a big number. what does it mean to people at home? does it mean they will get to see their gps when they wa nt will get to see their gps when they want to, the cancer analysis they
need within two weeks, 16 weeks or a timeframe that suits their families' needs? need to be broken down to more meaningful ways for families to understand, it is enough one —— money at it it will work for them. the tories say 20.5 william. is the nhs fixable? there is a question! i think it is very natural for political parties to see that more money will improve the nhs. —— to say. there is undoubtedly a wider question about reforming the nhs. we should be talking about this perhaps in this, adult social care, how to talents the pressure is the nhs face around care workers and how to make it work letter in a more efficient way that respects the needs of elderly people. that is where a lot of reform needs to happen. we might see that in the general election campaign but right now we are seeing more money for nurses and hospital. it is not often that people will
praise theresa may these days but she tried to level with the public that social care was a very collocated problem where some people would have to lose out on the status quo to fix it. there were lots of problems with her proposed fixed and thatis problems with her proposed fixed and that is the reason she went through the unprepared —— the step of dumping it just after she the unprepared —— the step of dumping itjust after she announced it but the reality of that experience for her is that no party leaders, of whatever stripe, are going to go near the really thorny questions, the questions in what are usually called the too difficult box. and certainly not an election campaign was to but is notjust true of social care, but so many issues. more generally than health, too. the way in which we fight election campaigns and it is fight —— it is partly the media's fault, and also the public, people have busy lives and they don't have time to engage with the structural issues but if every five years or few at the moment, parties need to have bite —sized manifestoes and easy to
understand policies, then those longer term, structural issues across all sorts of areas are not going to get solved. and also the public‘s view of what the nhs is is so different. we had a reality check a few days ago and i think it was fascinating for a lot of people to learn that there is a lot or rather a percentage of services that are shipped out to the private sector in terms of nhs care. it is really interesting. it is not what it started out as. the demands are different and the services it provides are also different. different and the services it provides are also differentm different and the services it provides are also different. it is a heart and soul issue as well thought of that is what it is for the labour party. its finest achievement as a movement was the nhs and it wants to win it in election campaigns. this is why you will see a big set piece from john ashworth. but will it tackle the big questions we know that are there in the public policy? well, we will have to wait and see. well, we will have to wait and see. we will see how matt hancock will react. he has said it is not for sale. watch this space tomorrow. let
us turn to the telegraph. the green revolution, pledges the pm. this is from the horace johnson to deal with the uk's manufacturing industry, the car industry in decline and the solution, let's have more electric ca rs solution, let's have more electric cars and let's make them in britain. this is part of the green revolution which the prime minister is pledging. serious investment in that particular industry. not wholly clear from the telegraph's front page i brexit is a factor here and why being in or out of the eu might make making cars easier on the —— or more difficult. but that is the pitch. we will create more jobs, make cars again but they will be green. why the proviso of getting brexit done in order to achieve this? i don't know and in fairness to borisjohnson, this? i don't know and in fairness to boris johnson, i this? i don't know and in fairness to borisjohnson, i can't see that framing in any of his direct quotes in this story but i think again, looking at where, the reason boris
johnson is a saying this, partly it is because he is pitching for votes in constituencies which are currently labour which are trying to find a sort of way to thrive in a post—industrial age and this is a way of saying to these communities, look, here are the jobs of the future we can bring to you. it is also more generally borisjohnson trying to confront an area of weakness, past weakness, for the conservative party on green issues. in the last year in particular, green issues have rocketed up the agenda. it is partly extinction rebellion in the uk but also a part ofa rebellion in the uk but also a part of a local movement of concern about climate change. and the conservative party, perhaps not in the selection, but certainly in the election in decades to come, can't win if it is not seen as taking climate change seriously. i think that is as stark asa seriously. i think that is as stark as a conservative strategists see it. the conservative party used to be good on green issues. lots of people remember david cameron cycling to work and that was a big
deal even though it then turned out there was a car behind with his shoes on it. but yeah, again, this is borisjohnson shoes on it. but yeah, again, this is boris johnson making shoes on it. but yeah, again, this is borisjohnson making an incursion into what would be seen as traditional labour territory. into what would be seen as traditional labour territorym seems an obvious pledge to have in all the manifestoes. for all the parties. but you do have to ask, what have they delivered on so far? perhaps the example of london is very high profile, you have the congestion charge and the fight against wood burners but it makes you pause and think how difficult or easy it is to meet these commitments. when you are talking about something like climate change, if you are focusing on matters in issue, people who respond are
knowledgeable and educated about the detail and what you actually need to do to reduce the amount of carbon emissions. they would remember the story from last week, the government seemed to equivocate whether it was for or against fracking. all of these stories pile up and are read asa trend. these stories pile up and are read as a trend. i think the tories might have to do a bit more to convince people they are in the right frame when it comes to climate change. 0k, let us turn to the independent. tories running scared on fake spending figures. so says who? so says the labour party, you will be stunned to hear. we have been talking about a big number in the nhs. but this is another consist —— controversial number. the cost the conservative party have said of a five years of a labour government. thejeremy five years of a labour government. the jeremy corbyn five years of a labour government. thejeremy corbyn government. it must be said, hotly contested analysis of how labour's various spending plans various —— previously announced, stack up. yes, the conservative party have been accused of fa ke conservative party have been accused of fake spending figures, as that independent has reported. the reason they throughout this 1.2 trillion pounds figure was to get people talking about it. we are several days on from the first day of that round and it is still high up the
news agenda. even if people have not liked the way they have gone about it. what this story is about is the tories are saying to the nation, labour will spend too much of your money for top they will be throwing it left, right and centre the money will flow into the nhs and the english education system once again. they are relying on voters having a short attention span and not linking up short attention span and not linking up each day of his election campaign to the one who preceded it. ultimately, this is about money and the public trust the figures they are hearing.1.2 the public trust the figures they are hearing. 1.2 trillion, thousands of billions of pounds, what does it really mean? the reality is and we have seen it in our own research at the john smith centre, the promises? they don't expect their politicians to keep them. i suppose it doesn't
help. you need to start quoting numbers that are reliable. the video put up byjohn mcdonald basically saying, come on, sajid javid, come and to beat me. in this, he said and only 5% of top tax earners will pay more tax. all of the big players are going to leave if labour are in power. you have to question whether thatis power. you have to question whether that is going to be reassuring. where do those people go? is it other eu countries? are they able to do theirjobs and business there in the same way they do in the uk? i think labour in fairness have a basket of other things in this election campaign and they are not just going for people in that topping come —— top income bracket was not they are going about
companies was not they want to spend more money on public services and they are going to detail how they will go about it. to the public want to vote on taxes? it depends if you are paying them a lot. let us turn to the times will stop future flood victims could get —— could get money. the floods, particularly in and around doncaster, has become quite intensely politicised. we have had jeremy corbyn urging boris johnson to do more. we have every person going up there with can be any entirely tv —— with conveniently tv cameras nearby. this won't affect people have it —— that have been affected now but forward—looking. the government agency set up three
yea rs the government agency set up three years ago after a previous bout of floods, they are going to give people financial incentives to basically flood proof their homes or move towards a flood proving their homes in advance. i suppose this is the start of signs that the government already has measures in place for protecting people against floods because clearly the conservative party can't get into a position where there is a narrative that they only care about flood victims if they are in the south for example which has been taking in some areas over the last few days. the scheme is called called back et al.. you will be incentivised to have more to —— waterproofing, they will move plug sockets up. i guess if you are facing flooding right now, you will think it is too little too late but the idea is it lacks your house stronger for next time around. some parts of the country where the river don have burst its banks have seen flooding before but some of the towns haven't flooded in hundreds of years so they might respond so well to this government initiative. if you do have a property where you have those
defences put on, if it comes to fruition, you do have to wonder what it will do to your property price. big flashing red light that you have experienced flooding now. —— experienced flooding now. —— experienced flooding now. —— experienced flooding before. the paper reporting the death of lord bramall who has died at the age 95. field marshal lord bramall was the head of the armed forces some time ago. but in recent years came back to the headlines and the public eye because he was one of the public figures who was investigated over allegations of child abuse. those allegations of child abuse. those allegations turned out to be false. carla beach who was at the time dubbed nick was jailed for perverting the laws ofjustice in july. perverting the laws ofjustice in july- --
perverting the laws ofjustice in july. —— —— perverting the laws ofjustice in july. -- -- -- perverting the laws ofjustice in july. —— —— —— carl beech. clearly, there are lots of questions more generally, regardless of lord bramall‘s sade death, about whether police officers who were involved in this investigation should face penalties. —— —— sad death. this will only fuel those questions. lord bramall, we have only got about a minute, let's turn to the sun. breaking tradition with harry and the queen? we are barely in november and here we are. meghan breaking with tradition are not going to sandringham for christmas, hence the headline. quite a controversial move if you are a follower of the royal festive stories. it's intriguing. we don't quite know why. it may be they
just want to spend time as a young family with their child, maybe we are never family with their child, maybe we a re never really family with their child, maybe we are never really going to know. the traditionalists will be upset, won't they? it's a red flag. if this is something that would continue? laughter very deeply. i think there are reports they will be travelling to america for thanksgiving. perhaps they will have an extended break, who knows? kathy dugdale and harry zachman, thank you very much —— kezia. don't forget all of the front pages can be viewed online. it's all there for you, seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers. and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. and there are lots of other programmes on there for you as well.
thank you henry zeffman, and kezia dugdale. goodbye. good evening. i'm gavin ramjaun, here's your latest sports news: england manager gareth southgate has compared the altercation between players raheem sterling and joe gomez to a "family disagreement". raheem sterling has been dropped from the england team for thursday's euro 2020 qualifier against montenegro following the incident. more from our sports correspondent katie gornall. eight st. george's park this morning, england were putting on a brave face. it's been a testing 48 hours. raheem sterling train despite having been dropped for starting a bust up with joke owners. the liverpool defender appeared with a scratch near his eye. however it was
good, gareth southgate refused to say. we're like a family, all families have disagreements, and the most important thing for any family is that you through those disagreements and you work through them. i don't expect you never have to deal with things that are either unexpected or difficult. yesterday's ice came after the two players were involved in an angry confrontation towards the end of liverpool's 3—1 victory over manchester city. the biggest game of the season so far and tensions remained after the final whistle. stirling has since apologised saying on social media, "both joe and i apologised saying on social media, "bothjoe and i have had words, the figure things out and moved on. i am man enough to admit when emotions get the better of me." club ruggles is used to play england but the irony of what has happened here is that immunity has been such a key pa rt that immunity has been such a key part of southgate's success as manager. and it's the desire to preserve the togetherness this squad that has led him to drop arguably
his most important player. for it to boil over on a game on the weekend is something i haven't come across before. i see it boil over in training practice sessions and in matches and things like that but never over dinner or within the sort of relaxed confines of your own training camp. the public fallout has overshadowed preparations for what will be england's 1000 has overshadowed preparations for what will be england's1000 men's international. but southgate hopes short—term pain will bring long—term gains. one other line to bring you — fabian delph has left the england squad, to continue his recovery from a hamstring injury. action from this evening now. and the welsh women's side had to settle for a point in northern ireland in their euro 2021 qualifer, missing the chance to close the gap on group leaders norway. both sides had chances to win it. but it finished goalless at seaview. wales keeper laura 0'sullivan did brilliantly to keep out striker simone magill in the first half. wales remain second, but still unbeaten, four points off norway. northern ireland are
second from bottom. england's women were in action, too. the lionesses beat the czech republic in a friendly, but were far from convincing. england's form has been patchy and they went behind before goals from beth england and beth mead turned it around. the czechs equalised but leah williamson's first international goal snatched a late victory in the snow. now, drama at the o2 arena, for the atp world tour finals this evening. dominic thiem is the first man through to the semifinals after a thrilling win over novak djokovic. the austrian, won the deciding set on a tie—break. it was incredible performance by thiem, who recovered from 1—4 down to clinch his first win against novak djokovic on hard courts. the result means the winner of djokovic or roger federer on thursday, will make the final four. well, federer kept his hopes alive.
earlier, he faced the italian matteo berrettini. both had lost their opening group games, so a lot was riding on the match at the o2 arena. federer took the first set, but berrettini pushed him to a tie—break, it finished 7—6. federer won the second set 6—3. this is only the second time the two have met competitively — federer won in straight sets at wimbledon this year. that's all the sport for now. hello, once again. after so much wet weather in recent weeks it looks as though wednesday for much of the british isles is going to start at least on a drier, brighter, colder note. although there is no discounting the fact there is another set of fronts bringing rain to western areas later in the day. a cold, crispy start for many. so is in the north—west of england. but as you see, even on into the afternoon, many central and eastern areas will end up with a dry, sunny but not overly warm day. temperatures down into single figures where we will see a significant change to the
afternoon is rain getting into northern ireland, wales and the south—west of england. the advised in the more intense burst over the moors, you could end up with a covering of snow. here we are into thursday, the same band of whether producing an awful lot of rain over the southern counties, and as the day progresses this southern future isjoined by a northern day progresses this southern future is joined by a northern future and thatis is joined by a northern future and that is the concern. the rain looks set to return to some of the flood affected areas. there are already met office warnings out and available on our website. from thursday on into friday, the big area of low pressure, still close by over the knee are consonant, and it is still a north — north—easterly feed of the cold north sea which will bring an awful lot of cloud, into wales and southern scotland, too. the rest of the sunshine across much of northern and western scotland, western ireland, the western side of wales and
south—western part of the country as well. but it is cold and miserable and dank under those weather fronts. here we are at the start of the weekend. what has changed? really not much at all. the low pressure ever closer to the south—eastern quarter, still the onshore feed, still the suggestion of enough cloud to have bits and pieces of rain falling from that. no great intensity but any rain into some areas is not very welcome at all. here we are as far as sunday, no signs of mild air creeping towards the british isles, so sunday is another dank sort of chilly day. the best of the sunshine behind a more westerly feature here, and still that stripe of bigger cloud all the way from the north east of england. single figures are the order of the day. further rain to come, some haylen snow and a bit cold, too.
i'm mariko 0i in singapore. the headlines: in hong kong, police warn that the rule of law is on the brink of total collapse as the violence intensifies. conditions are about as bad as they can get across much of eastern australia as ferocious bushfires reach sydney's suburbs. i'm maryam moshiri in london. also in the programme: australia's highest court agrees to give cardinal george pell
