11:31 pm
he says without their support on the tier system restrictions, covid—19 will ‘swamp‘ the nhs. a ‘last minute dash to save christmas rail chaos‘ on tomorrow‘s telegraph — with reports that ministers are preparing urgent plans to deal with the expected rush during the five day restrictions relaxation window this christmas. the ft‘s front page focuses on the potential collapse of sir philip green‘s retail empire arcadia. the paper reports that as the company prepares to enter administration, more than 13,000 jobs are at risk. that same story being reported on the front page of the i — the paper says multi—millionaire green will decide the fate of his employees this weekend, having been urged to use his family‘s personal fortune to throw a lifetine arcadia — which owns highstreet stores including topshop and dorothy perkins. the daily mirror reports that whilst aracadia stands on the brink of collapse, sir philip green is planning a christmas getaway at luxury
11:32 pm
resort in the maldives. lovely to have you both back with us, good to see you here on a friday night. i‘m sure you‘ve got better things to do but good to have you with us. let us start we will start with us. let us start we will start with the times, and let‘s start with you, allie this time. this is a warning from michael gove, we‘ve been hearing much more about these tea rs systems been hearing much more about these tears systems that england will go into after the second lockdown ends. 90% of england will be in these two top tears, and mps need to vote this through, and so what is michael gove saying to them? he tried to for rebellion, a vote next week as you rightly say only three places in the uk you can go, cornwall, the isle of wight or the aisles of silly, but it
11:33 pm
rest of the country he were going to be in tier2 rest of the country he were going to be in tier 2 or two or three. a lot of backbenchers are saying, particularly deeming green bay very good point that he‘s an mp4 constituency in kent, and before we went to this lockdown and his area was in tieri and i will be in tier 3. just been on a locked on my situation for my constituents, and the businesses in my constituency is worse than it was before, how can this be right? and you know that there is a group called the micro recovery group led by steve baker and the former chief with commitment area and the former chief with commitment are a vociferous and recent weeks about holding government to account say they are not going to vote for for the restrictions less the government explains clearly cost—benefit analysis of bringing in new and opposing restrictions. the rebellion brewing and even some of the government own ministers. this
11:34 pm
is probably going to be a little bit of movement on this, it will be do need to remember though is the rate is coming down, good news in the vaccine front and be careful not to throw away all the good work that has been done so far but a really good tough time for businesses for people stuck in their homes for a weeks and months to come stop by interesting to see if there is movement, ali, because ultimately one of the things is the premise or once a simplicity as everyone understood what was happening. if you were in a tier what was happening, we did not have the situations where one road has these restrictions and of the road had different restrictions. but as ali was alluding to potentially there will be a bit of movement stop loop we will have to wait and see, the rest of the talk about whether there will be some kind of shifting of the
11:35 pm
rules in those villages and towns, and be brought into the higher tears because they neighbour big cities we re because they neighbour big cities were the virus rates are much higher. and i think evidently it‘s a lwa ys higher. and i think evidently it‘s always rage to scrutinise with the government is doing, but we do need to look at the rates across the country, unfortunately most in some places they are coming down the number of people dying daily is a gravely high. we are in a period now where it‘s a blue season —— flu season so where it‘s a blue season —— flu season so peoples immune system is left of that off a number of things and as we are heading towards christmas one of my concerns is although there‘s always the level of individual responsibility some of the individualisation of this as we get to the christmas period will be concerning. were the government could done even in a lot of ways not desirable, if they are going to say for instance the people can meet over christmas one of the things that they could have done would be
11:36 pm
to close schools a week earlier, make your children taught probably at home and make sure that people have time to isolate if they are going to be seeing elderly relatives. a number of things the government will be questioned on over the next week as this vote comes to parliament, but there‘s really a lot of concern about what will happen over the christmas period after that if it‘s going to be another really high spike. these debates around restrictions are not going to go away and as you said there does need to be clarity for people so they know what the rules are and they are easy to follow, and paid properly if they had to isolate when these rules are in place. that‘s what the teddy telegraph is focusing on these villages being offered the escape route from toughest tears, again focusing on what you were saying a little bit earlier. they are talking about the rebellion of up to 100 tories threatening this biggest rebellion. for the last time around we had all of these discussions do you think
11:37 pm
they were explaining themselves clearly enough when they‘re trying to bring in peace with them on what isa to bring in peace with them on what is a difficultjourney, and unprecedented times?” is a difficultjourney, and unprecedented times? i think the communications in the past few months have been, let‘s put it politely, a lot to be desired. the prime minister now got the press secretary and allegra stratton, and little bit of a change in tone. but ido little bit of a change in tone. but i do think that rebellion is brewing a number of fronts within the party and this covid recovery group which is worried about for the restrictions, he‘s got the organ research group that‘s worried about the impacts that these restrictions are having in the red wall seats up north which they all one last december. and they are concerned about leveling up. he‘s got various other groups and caucuses within the conservative party putting pressure on him from different sides. it‘s not an easy situation for the
11:38 pm
government to manage, and i do sympathise and empathise with their position, but i do think on the one side they are trying to keep it clear and simple side they are trying to keep it clearand simple and side they are trying to keep it clear and simple and understandable, but there is some criticism that if you look at counties, catches her he was, they should do it by a borough by borough basis. that would‘ve been a better thing to do and they have got to look at ways of trying to keep the as they can particularly as a move into this christmas period, because this is really important time for businesses. as we come out people want to look forward to next year, they can get back on their feet and try and come out of this horrendous time we have been having over the last few months. is that something you would have reckoned as a better way of doing this rather than the large expenses? is difficult to say and you certainly have this problem or you don't want to make all about london because of the parts of the country exist, and living in london one of the things that's sort of of note is that
11:39 pm
london is going to be in tier 2, but i live in east london with the rates are quite high, so you have this issue around their being higher rates, in particular areas but the tears not matching up to that or vice versa. there certainly an issue here but for the government that it is difficult in terms of having that clarity of message, and one of the things that's worth noting in terms of economic health and the public health is really making sure that test entry system did not get off the ground cover up and ready as early as they really needed to mass testing in a way that we are now beginning to see. i really did not have an early enough and have happened earlier in order to better control the virus, a part of the problem is making sure the right people are doing their testing and tracing and not local authorities who are really not they should've put more money into authorities to scale it up as opposed to going the route that they did. that's where the things that we will see
11:40 pm
increasingly as being one of the ways to make sure we can transfer the virus is in society and better control it in the months ahead. lot of analysis as and when we finally get out of this. let‘s stay with the daily telegraph but let‘s look at what is happening on the rails when it comes to what we are expecting, the christmas getaway. and chaos is with the daily telegraph is predicting. just talk us telegraph is predicting. just talk us through it because we will have that window over the christmas period where people come the tears will be relaxed and people will be able to travel to a certain extent but it‘s not quite be easy. able to travel to a certain extent but it's not quite be easy. it got to keep the show on the road and maintain these trains on the rails and not off the rails. as you read the same between the 23rd of december in the 27th we will be allowed to group up into bubbles of up allowed to group up into bubbles of up to three families. we know that that‘s always traditionally a very
11:41 pm
busy time as people travel and stay with theirfamilies busy time as people travel and stay with their families and friends, and the rail network is going to be absolutely rammed. so there are plans to try and make people book in advance as much as they can come up sir peter who ran the two networks for the olympics to manage the system better and make sure that scheduling is all working fine, and grant it even thinking about making some of the trains longer than usual. i think the government is wise to it, they‘re planning for as best as they can and looking at the road network as well. trying to clear as much of the road network as possible before the 23rd, but it‘s going to be challenging to maintain social distancing in an environment where millions of people will be moving around the country, and that again puts all the hard work they have done injeopardy. i do think the government is trying its best that we do hope that there‘s enough capacity on the road and rail
11:42 pm
network to get people home safely to spend time with their friends and family. you touched upon the journey he had to take when it comes to getting back for christmas, and have just been reading into this, where the stations huge coverages traffic going through it and will be closed until the 30th of december so that‘s not going to help when it comes to people trying to get around from the capital into other places to see their relatives. i have to say when i saw that a week or two ago i was surprised at this. that usually make sense to do those works in the line when, over those days when be are not travelling like christmas day, boxing day but it seems puzzling thatis boxing day but it seems puzzling that is happening at this time. what are the things here is the capacity on the trains and what you have to do with the trains is book a seed, because we can't have this situation, is not great at the times
11:43 pm
in previous years we've had to stand in is of being overcrowded so paying a huge amount of money to sit on the floor, which i've had to do before. but we really can't have that now with coronavirus, you have to book your seat in order to maintain social distancing. that's obviously a major issue and i think the secondary issue is really a lot of us secondary issue is really a lot of us considering whether it's right to try and make that journey. obviously we want try and make that journey. obviously we wa nt wa nt try and make that journey. obviously we want want to see our families, so many of us not able to see our families over holidays, and the issues we know about not being able to get together over periods that usually do. let people making that ca re usually do. let people making that care collation and really thinking about should i travel, should i make thisjourney in order to go home for christmas that i think i will also play into how many people are on the train at particular times over christmas period. sum of soul—searching with people needing to use their common sense. they stick our minds off it with a bit of brexit, the ft looking at the talks
11:44 pm
that will be continuing over the weekend. back in london, he said he‘s pleased to be back, but not going on well. the fishing quotas, the eu will then restore to the uk are still that same some that the uk is not helping —— happy about. are still that same some that the uk is not helping -- happy about. the fishing quota issue, the state aid issue and the resolution dispute issue. all of those three still on the table. 0n the fishing quotas in particular the eu is now saying that of the six or to 50 odd million that‘s been generated in revenue from the fishing quotas that they have their willing to give up between 15 to 18% back to the uk. david frost who is running over negotiation is looking for 80%. if you can see the massive gulf between the two. this is going to be a real problem, these talks are going to go
11:45 pm
down to the wire. i‘ve always felt slightly hopeful actually that there will be a deal, because i do think that boris johnson will be a deal, because i do think that borisjohnson has got one eye on scottish independence and the fa ct on scottish independence and the fact that that‘s really camping up in terms of popularity, and forgive the pun, sell scottish fishermen down the river, because he knows is going to increase support for independence. he also knows his got a new us president who is very concerned about maintaining the good friday agreement and not having any watering down of that, so this whole internal market bill were there was talk about imposing restrictions and allowing goods to be moving and then having a hard border between northern ireland and ireland is not going to work at all. borisjohnson and the government have got others to focus on, and referred earlier this week from the chancellor about the spending review of all the challenges we face a lot of .3%
11:46 pm
reduction can be the biggest and 300 yea rs. reduction can be the biggest and 300 years. huge economic challenges. they don‘t need brexit on the desk injanuary, they don‘t need brexit on the desk in january, so they don‘t need brexit on the desk injanuary, so i‘m still hopeful that‘s going to be —— but it‘s going to be quite a wild ride. do you share his optimism can we don‘t have that vote leave contingent anymore, dominic cummings has gone to a new chief of staff, allegra stratton is income but what you reckon? in this michel barnier said that 15 to 18% is the limit he's been given, allowed or given the go—ahead from the eu, so i think what we may see is the british team having to budge in some way over this particular issue, and as has been said it seems that it's going to go down to the wire hashing out these issues that i know have been such a big sticking point for so long, and as a few weeks ago so hoping that there some
11:47 pm
kind of deal hashed out because having a no deal situation especially given the situation the economy is in with coronavirus would be far, far from ideal. indeed. we will watch and i‘m sure every twist and turn and any info we will get will be watching over the weekend. that‘s all we can sort it out guys. let‘s look at this arcadia, these huge high street staples, and end of an absolute era. i think the high street was under a lot of pressure before this crisis struck with rising rents of people shopping online, chemist there was already significant headwinds for the retail industry, and this isjust going significant headwinds for the retail industry, and this is just going to be the biggest casualty of all so far. looking at 13,000 job losses which are shops like topshop, burton, evidence of a real stables of the high street. it is run by philip green, a controversial
11:48 pm
figure, he‘s been, he set up arcadia many years for famously to get a 1.2 billion dividend back in 2005, famously sold bhs for a pound in 2015, settled with a massive pension deficit of £571 million, 1.3 billion in debt. don‘t get me wrong, i‘m a capitalist, i believe the profit motive, i believe that entrepreneurship should be welcomed at people who take risk should be rewarded, what i don‘t like is when people don‘t pay their fair share of tax, they live in tax havens, and they get knighted for it. that‘s wrong. it reminds me also is a report another paper where he‘s putting a christmas get away. that‘s fine it‘s his private business but it‘s rather insensitive to be doing that when thousands of people will lose herjob at your business it reminds me of the indian billionaire, former head of kingfisher airlines who basically had a 60th birthday party with
11:49 pm
henrique iglesiasjust shortly had a 60th birthday party with henrique iglesias just shortly after firing loads of people at his airline and being accused of a $1 billion fraud. neither of them are here to defend themselves, and we don‘t know about the holiday, it‘s a paper we can‘t corroborate that, but we hear what you are saying. the image that the i is looking at is what they described as the father of iran‘s nuclear bomb. iran‘s top nuclear scientist has been assassinated, and they are and what they are saying is they‘re pointing they are saying is they‘re pointing the finger of blame at israel saying that it‘s trying to provoke a war. yes, so this is happened in the past where scientists have been assassinated. the reigning scientists have been assassinated and they called it state sanctioned terrorism. looking this assassination specifically and the
11:50 pm
applications of this for the restricting that nuclear programme, and that deal that's really been hashed out that we saw thrown out under donald trump, and put the incoming presidentjoe under donald trump, and put the incoming president joe biden under donald trump, and put the incoming presidentjoe biden says he wa nt incoming presidentjoe biden says he want to re—engage with iran, what hope to see is not only talking about iran's nuclear programme but nuclear disarmament globally as something that's really, really needed and necessary, and hoping to see a move in that direction. this is not going to help with thinking about those talks but hopefully the change in the white house will move this ina change in the white house will move this in a different direction, although i don't want to overstate where joe biden is in these issues. i think moving towards nuclear disarmament globally is really necessary. would a topic and what topic to finish the conversation on, but always thank you so much and forgiving of your friday evening for speaking to us, and a very good we can focus on what‘s going on with those brexit negotiates that because we will be talking about them next week i‘m sure. they get our viewers
11:51 pm
as well if you would like to get involved in the conversation the hashtag on social media is bbc papers. hi there, good evening. i‘m chetan pathak with your sports news. we start with rugby league and an unbelievable end to the superleague grand final between st helens and wigan warriors in hull tonight. late drama ensured the defending champions st helens got the win, bringing a tough season for the sport to an end. rounding up a game those who played in, and watching at home, won‘t forget in a hurry. here‘s adam wild. after a season of turbulence and turmoil, this grand final could be nothing but extraordinary. in a year where almost everything changed, here was a rugby league rivalry that endures — st helens and wigan, nearest neighbours and here, they could scarcely be closer. wigan‘s zak hardaker over the line but unable to score.
11:52 pm
but what the game lacked in points, it made up for in passion and in pressure and finally, st helens were the first to crack. wigan offered just the smallest of gaps. it was alljake bibby needed. two points the lead, it wouldn‘t last. a saints penalty and the scores were tied but what came next will go down in rugby league legend. the very last play of the match, a drop goal that hit the post. incredibly, st helens‘ jack welsby the quickest to react. he‘s touched it down! it‘s welsby! a st helens winner in the last second of the match. the most astonishing end to a most incredible season. st helens are super league champions. adam wild, bbc news. it‘s a theme of late drama tonight, newcastle falcon‘s continued their brilliant return to rugby union‘s premiership with a last—gasp win over sale sharks. the sharks had been ahead, with time out on the clock, but newcastle scored this try with the last play of the game
11:53 pm
to make it two wins from two. jonny bairstow was england‘s star as they beat south africa by five wickets in the first t20 international in cape town. faf du plessis hit an impressive 58 as the home side posted 179 for six from their 20 overs. england‘s reply got off to a troubled start whenjason roy fell for a second ball duck but bairstow, dropped down to bat at four, smashed four sixes in his 86 not out to see england over the line with four balls remaining. it seems to be one of my favourite grounds, like you say, and i quite like it being my favourite. it‘s an amazing place to come and play cricket. this ongoing down today over the mountain and it was just unfortunate we did not have a special crowd into witness a game like that, because it would have been thoroughly enjoyable.
11:54 pm
late drama in rugby tonight and there were late goals in the premier league too as newcastle beat crystal the game was goalless until the 88th minute. but, then the breakthrough came. joe linton setting up callum wilson to score his seventh league goal since joining in the summer. and then just over a minute later, joelinton got a goal himself. the brazilian‘s deflected effort making it 2—0. just his third league goal since joining the club last year. you do see the clock ticking down to be honest, but you stay in focus and concentrate, just waiting for that one opportunity, whether it comes in the first or 90th minute you have to be ready and being patient throughout the game stood me in good stead when it did come around. in the championship, brentford are up to fourth after beating queens park rangers in their west london derby. ivan toney got his 12th of the season to make it 2—1 to the bees.
11:55 pm
northern ireland have edged closer to a play—off to win a place at the european championship‘s in 2022 with a 3—2 home win over belarus. it was kirsty mcguinness who scored the crucial goal in belfast, her second of the night and her teams third. the result means that a win over the faroe islands on tuesday, a team they beat 6—0 earlier on in qualifying, will confirm their place in the play—offs. not such good news for scotland, though. they were beaten 1—0 in portugal. it means they stay in third for now, behind the portuguese who are second. they do still have three matches to go in that group though, so still a long way to go. and that‘s all the sport for now. more on the bbc sport website. but for now, goodbye. hello there. friday was a decidedly chilly day,
11:56 pm
particularly in those places where fog lingered. the weekend promises something just a little bit milder, but it will often be quite cloudy, that cloud at times will produce the odd spot of rain and some quite murky conditions as well. low pressure to the southwest, high pressure to the east of us, that is driving a fairly gentle southerly flow across the british isles. you can see a few different weather fronts moving through bringing some patchy rain, but with that southerly flow we are importing some slightly milder air. we‘ve still got some pretty chilly conditions, though, across the northern half of the uk, and a frost to start off across the far north of england. parts of northern ireland and scotland, a bit of fog through the central belt. any rain and scotland becoming increasingly confined to the far north, but at the same time this big lump of cloud pushing up from the south across much of england and wales producing the odd spot of rain through the day. and some quite misty, murky conditions in places as well.
11:57 pm
perhaps something brighter into the far southeast, certainly some sunshine for the channel islands. highest temperatures in the south 13—14 celsius. now, as we head through saturday night, this big lump of cloud with some mist and murk, and some spots of rain cover that will all continue to drift its way slowly northwards. clear skies in northeast scotland, we could see a touch of frost here, but elsewhere temperatures on sunday morning will be above freezing. sunday, though, does look like a pretty cloudy affair. there will be the odd spot of rain or drizzle here or there. best chance of any sunshine through the channel islands, far southwest of england, maybe west wales, and also northeast scotland. the cloud breaking up here as the winds begin to pick up a little bit. top temperatures 8—10 celsius. maybe 12 in the far southwest of england. a bit of a change into the start of the new working week, because we will see a frontal system pushing in from the north. that will bring outbreaks of rain quite erratically southwards across the british isles through the day on monday. that rain likely to be quite light and patchy, certainly as it gets down towards the south.
11:58 pm
some brighter skies following on from the north, but with the winds coming down from the north it‘s going to start to feel quite chilly once again. temperatures in most places, eight, nine, or 10 degrees. tuesday should be a dry day for most, and then later in the week temperatures will take a tumble. we will seem rain at times and perhaps something wintry over high ground.
11:59 pm
this is bbc news, with the latest headlines for viewers in the uk and around the world. iran blames israel for the assassination of its top nuclear scientist, accusing it of seeking to provoke war. president macron describes the beating of a black man by four police officers as shameful for france. their victim says he was also racially abused. anger in argentina after workers hired to help with diego maradona‘s funeral
