tv   The Papers  BBC News  April 21, 2022 10:30pm-10:46pm BST

10:30 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are torcuil crichton, the westminster editor at the daily record, and sian griffiths, who's education editor for the sunday times. tomorrow's front pages, starting with... borisjohnson on many of the front pages — shown here on the i during his trip to india, but the focus is on issues at home. the paper says tory rebels forced an investigation into whether the prime minister misled parliament over lockdown parties. the telegraph says borisjohnson "buckled" over efforts to block that investigation, which was approved by mps without needing a formal vote. meanwhile, the metro quotes conservative mp, steve baker, during the debate in the commons. "the gig is up boris" is the headline, as the backbencher called for him to step down.
10:31 pm
the guardian calls it a day of humiliation for the pm, saying mrjohnson suffered a number of blows to his authority. elsewhere, the paper claims russian forces are burying civilians in mass graves, during efforts to seize the ukrainian port city of mariupol. the financial times leads with claims that the government wants to give ministers the power to rip up the post—brexit deal governing trade in northern ireland, and highlights the potential response from ireland and the eu. so let's begin... ican begin i can begin with the telegraph supporting where's your 28 boris johnson used to write his column. and they are running with the huge damage thatjohnson has suffered, it seems to many today. damage that johnson has suffered, it seems to many today.— damage that johnson has suffered, it seems to many today. yeah, it was an interesting day — seems to many today. yeah, it was an interesting day down _ seems to many today. yeah, it was an interesting day down in _ seems to many today. yeah, it was an interesting day down in the form - interesting day down in the form today. the day turned on its head
10:32 pm
with that incredible, dramatic u—turn at 1115 by the conservatives realising that it faced a beauty from tory mps whether to turn up to back borisjohnson to block this labour motion that successfully to the committee. they had to turn and give a boat. all this happening while the prime minister is out of the country. you see his picture they are on the front of the daily telegraph in india looking like in extra for top so while the cat is away the mice did play. the tory mps simply told they were going to do it. as steve baker said, and set on the floor of the house, the gig is up. it's a question of whether the gig is up or not, that remains to be seen. he's one step closer to leaving downing street, two steps back. he was done a couple of favours today. one is at the met
10:33 pm
police declared it would an issue any more fixed penalty notice, no more party case two party finds until after these local government elections in may which is i guess good news, not good news if tories wake up friday morning having lost hundreds of counsellors and fixed penalty points as well. another thing that helps him in the machinery of this investigation is that the chair of the privileges committee, because he is interviewed before and actually called boris johnson a liar has recused himself. he stood aside from that committee. a committee of seven are down to six. there are four tories are not committee to opposition, one s and p. how that committee might conclude we don't know. fine p. how that committee might conclude we don't know— p. how that committee might conclude we don't know-— we don't know. one part of this and the oint we don't know. one part of this and the point according _ we don't know. one part of this and the point according to _ we don't know. one part of this and the point according to the _ we don't know. one part of this andi the point according to the telegraph is saying is that basically the decision in the commons means mps have formally ruled that mrjohnson
10:34 pm
appeared to mislead and he said in december that no covert rules were broken in downing street and the privileges committee must now decide whether the prime minister knew that not to be true. the question is, how do you prove his intention, how do you show what was in his head with this event because back obviously there are potentially more events to come where it may be the proof will be more clear cut against him. yes. the metropolitan _ be more clear cut against him. yes. the metropolitan police are still investigating other potential lockdown breaches at number ten. it has said _ lockdown breaches at number ten. it has said it's — lockdown breaches at number ten. it has said it's not going to publicly issue _ has said it's not going to publicly issue any— has said it's not going to publicly issue any more finds before the local— issue any more finds before the local elections on may the 5th. nevertheless, borisjohnson is potentially facing a lot more difficulty. sue gray's report has yet to _ difficulty. sue gray's report has yet to be — difficulty. sue gray's report has yet to be published in full. there could _ yet to be published in full. there could be — yet to be published in full. there could be more fines for boris

10:36 pm
"quite shocking and disappointing. obviouslyjeremy hunt is a potential leadership candidate for that if it comes to that. rishi sunak is been long a potential candidate if it comes to it. is the conservative party in real disarray at the moment, do you think? or will they come together behind johnson but these elections ahead? trio but these elections ahead? fir? shocked and disappointed to see jeremy hunts subjects he is running. it's politics after all. and is sean pointed out there it's not really the process of the investigation of the process of the investigation of the police investigation or the sucre report, its at the fact that their committee can call for evidence including these crucial photos, 300 photographs of partying in downing street. 50 fines already gone out. the public aren't likely to forget that. it's not a case of if the conservative party will it's
10:37 pm
a case of when. clearlyjeremy hunt is in the running and others will too. then wallace who is reckoned to have had a good war in ukraine is the driving force behind giving all the driving force behind giving all the military support behind ukraine. liz truss, foreign secretary as well they will be others. one of the reason the tories are telling themselves that they can't go against borisjohnson is because they don't see any of these as obvious replacement against what was his previous election waiting magic. he has this touch of reaching parts of the country that are not being seen as tories in some respects and seen as tories in some respects and seen as tories in some respects and seen as a larger—than—life figure. 2019 and took labour across the divide. how that will play out in the next two weeks local government elections remains to be seen. it's an interesting pitch from theguardian. good nugget to throw in

10:41 pm
because sin fain become the biggest party rather than you and sinn fein minister rather than a do you be first minister the rules would be reversed. in terms of authority doesn't mean it's entirely symbolic but hugely symbolic that you have a party that wants to unite ireland. sinn fein in charge of the northern ireland assembly. that meet with the northern ireland protocol which by the way borisjohnson put his name to. northern allen protocol that divides northern ireland strayed from the uk at mainland. so this is can be up huge problem coming down the tracks for the uk government and from looking at fort northern ireland itself. it looks at best way borisjohnson will see in out is to have a route with brussels. let boris johnson will see in out is to have a route with brussels. let us t to net have a route with brussels. let us try to get through _ have a route with brussels. let us try to get through a _ have a route with brussels. let us try to get through a couple - have a route with brussels. let us try to get through a couple more i try to get through a couple more stories in the free clinic fume moments we got remaining for the ukraine, theguardian talking about
