5:02 am
these are very stern comments from, as you say, one of the most powerful politicians in this country, the speaker of the house of commons that it is, nancy pelosi, a warning —— house of representatives it is, that any amendment to the northern ireland protocol could jeopardise the hopes of a uk and us free trade agreement, such a deal has been an economic goal of the boris johnson administration of economic prosperity post for exit and the uk needs it badly but in this very strongly worded statement, nancy pelosi makes clear that the northern ireland protocol is one of the cornerstones of the good friday accords which are, in turn, the bedrock, as she puts it, the peace in northern ireland and a
5:03 am
beacon of hope for the entire world. she says that central to the good friday accords other fudge that they should be no physical border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland. should the uk choose to undermine the good friday accord, she says congress will not support a lateral free trade agreement. you ask the significance of this. it is significant but we have heard this from nancy pelosi in the past. nonetheless, it is the sort of rhetoric that occurs with not only her democratic colleagues but also those on the other side of the aisle, republicans, as well. they shared these sentiments by president biden himself as well who is of irish ancestry. he has intimated that he is not looking to set about starting negotiating uk and us trade deal while the uk is

5:05 am
president biden has close ties, he has irish ancestry, relatives from county mayo, he likes to quote irish poets, so this is very much central concern of his that those protocols, not be in some way upended by any agreement that comes out of brexit.— comes out of brexit. david willis, thank _ comes out of brexit. david willis, thank you - comes out of brexit. david willis, thank you very - comes out of brexit. david l willis, thank you very much. let's get some of the day's other news. the us senate has voted overwhelmingly in favour of emergency aid for ukraine, worth nearly $40 billion. the package — a mixture of military, economic and humanitarian assistance — is the biggest so far for ukraine. the bill will now go to the white house for president biden to sign it into law. the british prime minister, borisjohnson, is pressing ahead with changes to his team at downing street after police closed their investigation into lockdown parties at number 10 and whitehall. 83 people were fined, including the prime minister, who received one fixed penalty notice. the government said the altered staffing structure would "further strengthen"

the midlands, towards east anglia and the south—east, here, it should be dry. this is where we've got the best of the sunshine and the highest temperatures — up to 23 degrees — but it should be a little bit warmer for many of us on sunday. things will change, though, into the beginning of next week because lowering pressure means that it is going to get much wetter once again and those temperatures will be dropping away as well. goodbye.
