0h, "amazing"! 0h, heck, how does she know i'm amazing? laughter. well, that's really nice. our covid christmas must be celebrated in bubbles, but for those feeling left out, it's hoped some spontaneous seasonal cheer might bring us all a little closer together. mark easton, bbc news. there's more throughout the evening on the bbc news channel. now on bbc one, it's time for the news where you are. goodbye.
with us, author and journalist yasmin alibhai—brown and former pensions minister ros altmann. welcome to you both. hello! tomorrow's front pages, then. "don't risk a third wave" — that's the message from the foreign secretary on the front of the metro. speaking this morning, dominic raab failed to rule out a return to lockdown if mps vote down borisjohnson‘s new tier system in parliament this week. the daily express features a plea from the prime minister for "unity and resolve", insisting that the worst phase of the coronavirus pandemic was "very nearly behind us". pubs and restaurants hit by new covid restrictions will be given additional cash to help get them through christmas — that's according to the telegraph. the paper reports additional grants are likely to be funded by extra borrowing. the guardian writes the nhs is planning to enlist celebrities and influencers in a drive to persuade people to have a covid vaccine, amid fears of low take—up. the paper also features an image of the bahrain grand prix crash —
the formula 1 driver romain grosjean miraculously walked away with minor injuries. "go shop for britain" — that's the lead on the mirror, with christmas shoppers being urged to spend their money on the high streets to prevent traders from going bust. this is papers light, just a little before the main serving at 11:30pm, so we before the main serving at 11:30pm, so we better get a wriggle on, ladies, had we not? let's start with the metro. don't risk a third wave. that's where we would be heading, ros, if we do not observe the tears that come in on wednesday in england. that is the morning anyway. that is the morning. it is not clear that that is altogether supported by the data —— that is the morning. of course, this is very difficult, we know this is on that we have not experienced or dealt with before, but certainly a lot of the evidence emerging this evening is that, actually, the infection rate in the so—called second wave were already past their peak before the lockdown we are still in now, so i am hoping
that we will not have a third lockdown, that we will realise that actually we have started doing this under control already and things are looking rather better than they were before. the daily telegraph, though, is saying, yasmin, that there needs to be cash for pubs and restaurants to be cash for pubs and restaurants to quell this revolt from conservative mps in particular who are questioning the legitimacy, really, whether these are necessary. and who would've thought this is a government with an 80 seat majority? i know. i don't often feel for this particular prime minister, but i do think that most people who are revolting, for one reason or another, do not seem to understand that the crisis is still with us. do you know, the figures in south
korea, 516 people have died in total. we are talking about 50,000 plus. everybody... iwant total. we are talking about 50,000 plus. everybody... i want to get out, i want to do the things everybody else does, but actually, the role of the government is to keep the people safe. and i find these revolts quite astonishing. we do not want, and again dominic raab, on the andrew marr show, and he is being pushed all the time, he said we do not want another terrible peak to come our way. it is really not a safe time to be giving up on all of this. but, ros, the telegraph says tails will be allowed to continue during 21w. articling places, in tier 3, for example, large parts of england from whence it will be in
the highest parts of research and still, with a review on december 16, and in the meantime, all these businesses are thinking, or is the christmas rush? and this is a real dilemma the country itself is facing. editing a number of the tories that are rebelling against this draconian group of members we have seen and that seem to be absolute never ending and are causing such devastation, notjust to businesses but also to mental health and to health from cancer, or saying perhaps we just need to learn to live with this. if you start letting shops open 24/7 because you have a lockdown, you may end up with lots of people congregating together rather than if you had had the shops open all the time. it would have been more spread out. and most people are sensible. i trust the british people. most people probably
would not want to rush out and we are wearing masks, people are behaving quite well. it is a real problem, because if we don't have in economy, we cannot possibly support the nhs going forward. and all these medical procedures that are backing up medical procedures that are backing up now because medical procedures that are backing up now because we medical procedures that are backing up now because we have shut down so many parts of our country and our economy, and are trying to pave the way in case we get a lot more covid patients coming in, that itself is causing significant damage. i'm not saying it is easy and of course we have to take this seriously, but is the balance right? i think a lot of people are saying, we have not seen enough evidence that suggests what is happening is really necessarily the right way forward. there were lots of different opinions on this. you ask people and you will get a very firm opinion for most people, won't you? yasmin, the nhs use
celebrities to encourage covid vaccine take—up. we know there have been lots of conspiracy theories, particular on social media, and this looks like an attempt to encourage people to use this vaccine when it becomes available. who would've thought it? who would've thought that the very thing that might get us that the very thing that might get us properly out of this nightmare, a vaccine, is now also going to be resisted and opposed? there are two bestseller lists on the market at the moment all denying the value of vaccination. i think something will have to be done. i think in the culture in which we live, the celeb solution may be one, though i don't have much faith in that but they will be some kind of enforcement eventually because what is a point of having vaccination if 10% of the population refuses? these are such
difficult times and people are being quite dilettante difficult times and people are being quite diletta nte i difficult times and people are being quite dilettante i think. ros, what you think about it enforcement of vaccine? we've always done this by consent. we must not do that route, and i'm sorry, yasmin. i fundamentally disagree. most people, if they are frightened of covid, will have the vaccine. if you say, for example, you cannot travel u nless for example, you cannot travel unless you have been vaccinated, that itself will get a lot of people to have it. but if someone is genuinely fearful of the vaccine itself and thinks that maybe we don't know enough about the long—term side effects, and is perfect we healthy and believes that, actually, if they get covid, they are unlikely to have severe consequent is, that is their choice. that is their decision. i do not see how the government can come along and force people, anyone who is vulnerable clearly is likely to want
to ta ke vulnerable clearly is likely to want to take the vaccine. yasmin, i can see are itching to make more comments, but we will come back to this at 11:30pm. we will have more time to speak. i know that is so frustration, isn't it? cut off in their prime! we will be back at 11:30pm. we will have more time. coming up next is the weather. hello there. it's been another dull and gloomy day for most of the country on sunday. there was some sunshine across parts of south wales, south—west england, particularly here in cornwall. but it's these areas that saw some breaks in the cloud today that are going to find the fog developing and becoming thicker as well. mind you, it's pretty misty and murky elsewhere. cold still in the north—east of scotland. temperatures will rise in scotland as the wind picks up, the cloud thickens, and this rain gets blown in all the way down into northern ireland and northern england by the end of the night, by which time temperatures further
south will be around 5 or 6 degrees. what's happening tomorrow is that the high pressure that's brought all the mist and fog is getting pushed away by these weak weather fronts moving down from the north—west. so the fog lifts in the south—west of the uk. still misty and murky for a while, and a lot of cloud. probably not much rain, though, across southern parts of the uk. it's very patchy rain, this — most of it over the hills of wales and north—west england. and then, after the rain, we get some sunshine through the afternoon in scotland. temperatures for the most part, 9 or 10 degrees. the air gets a bit cooler, though, in scotland in that sunshine, and temperatures start to drop away. there will be a stronger breeze as well during monday. and that colder air then moves down across the eastern side of the uk overnight, as that rain on that weather front moves away. still out to the west in the milder air, there's going to be a lot of cloud and a little light rain or drizzle. but a frosty start perhaps for eastern scotland and north—east england on tuesday. it's going to be a cold day here, as that cloud just comes in over the top. we hang on to the sunshine for the midlands, east anglia, the south—east.
not a bad day here, temperatures 9 degrees or so, maybe making double figures out to the west, where the cloud is thick enough to give a few spots of light rain or drizzle. heading into the middle part of the week, and we see high pressure getting squeezed again, with another weather front moving down from the north—west. this one is very weak — it's more a band of cloud that's going to be moving down across the uk. not much rain on that at all. and then behind it, across the north—west, we get some sunshine, we get showers as well. the winds pick up, gales in the north—west of scotland, and the air‘s getting cold enough to perhaps give some wintryness in the highlands. 5 degrees here, elsewhere around 8 or 9 at best further south. that's into wednesday. but beyond wednesday, it gets colder still, i suspect, and much more unsettled. some stronger winds, some rain at times, and even some sleet and snow in the high ground.
this is bbc news with the latest headlines for viewers in the uk and around the world. diego maradona's doctor is investigated for possible negligence. he insists he did nothing wrong. translation: i would like him to be here. do i have regrets? i don't know. because he wanted a life that was bad. the united nations says 110 civilians have been killed in an attack by suspected islamist militants in nigeria. the uk government says it's "listening" to conservative mps who are unhappy with the latest coronavirus restrictions for england. having a vote on the regulations injanuary, with the sunset in february if that doesn't pass again, i think is the right combination of accountability and transparency with taking the measures that the public need now. and in sport, the french formula 1 driver romain grosjean
