against valancia, which they lost 1—0. it's not the be—all and end—all, there is four more games after this. as we sit here now with no points from the first game, yeah, it's a game we certainly have to be very ready for, as we try to pick up some of it. so the players are very aware of it. so the players are very aware of that. we can hopefully bring the confidence and the results that we've had back home to two really solid wins, and bring it tomorrow night, because we have to trust that if we play at our best, then we will get the result we want. lets take a look at some more of the stories making the headlines. staying with football, leeds united are back on top of the championship tonight after a 1—nil win over west brom. the macedonian alioski with the winner at elland road. west brom lose their unbeaten start to the season, but they are still second in the table. johnny sexton will captain ireland for the first time, in their rugby world cup pool match against russia on thursday, the returning fly—half is one of 11
changes to the side that lost to the hosts japan on saturday. and after over 140 years of racing, towcester, the course where ap mccoy rode his 4000th winner, has been permanenetly closed. it went into administration last year, its 10 race—days in the calendar will be re—allocated. eight months on from surgery on his hip, the former tennis world no. 1 andy murray has had his second win on the main tour since returning to singles. he has beaten the world number 13 matteo berrettini 7—6, 7—6. he's through to the second round of the china open in beijing, he will now meet british no 3 cameron norrie. just not being in pain now is making tennis a little bit more fun so the practice and the preparation for tournaments, it's a lot easier. you know, the last few years, that really wasn't the case
and i was finding it all really stressful, wasn't getting much enjoyment out of it. so, you know, it's a little bit different now, which is nice. well done to him. that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are daily mirror columnist, susie boniface and katherine forster from the sunday times. many of tomorrow's front
pages are already in. we begin with the telegraph, which shows borisjohnson rolling up his sleeves to tomorrow deliver a brexit offer which will keep northern ireland in in a special relationship with europe until 2025. looking very, very confident on that front page, which you can see at the moment. but i will carry on. the metro also leads on brexit — saying the pm will make his brexit deal offer to brussels in the morning, saying take it or leave it. again, the guardian's front page says borisjohnson will threaten the eu, "accept my final brexit offer or it's no deal." i'm just going to keep going. and the financial times talks of china's birthday celebrations being overshadowed by demonstrations in hong kong in which a protestor was shot for the first time. but has survived the shooting. well, that went well. i love technology.
let's see what we can do next. but we can show you... we have cameras in here, we can probably show you different pages. if i move these pages around on my desk, i'm sure we can see them. so, the daily telegraph, brexit reveals, pm rolls up telegraph, brexit reveals, pm rolls up his sleeves to send brussels final offer, and going by that picture, susie, also drinks a mug of tea with a picture of him on it. yes, borisjohnson tea with a picture of him on it. yes, boris johnson drinks tea with a picture of him on it. yes, borisjohnson drinks out of his own head, that's the thing i'm taking away from this entire front page. it's really, we have been sitting there, reading this for about three quarters of an hour now. it's completely clear. we can't understand what the hell his offer is. they still don't actually know, do they? fundamentally, the northern irish border, a border we are not allowed to have border controls on, and arguing for the last three years about how we cannot have... we have got it, there you go. yea, there it is! right neck there the mud, you can see the mug. boris johnson's big idea is to have two borders there, because this just
confounds people. one and the sea. you will make one in the sea, one on land. so basically, i think we are right in saying that... under boris johnson's plan, saying that... under borisjohnson's plan, which no one will agree, and he upsets everybody, just like the rest of brexit, is that the entire uk leaves the eu customs union, so there has to therefore be a hard border of some sort on the northern irish border, to check it's coming across the border. but not at the border. but somewhere near by, so giving smugglers a good five miles perhaps. they don't actually know that, do they? there has been talks of it that all the checks are online, and it may be random checks. we don't know the detail yet. what we do know is he said it's going to be minimal, and you are not going to see it, you wa nt to and you are not going to see it, you want to physically see it. but you have to have spot checks done by border guards, who would be open to intimidation if... speaking, and we have shown you the financial times as well, which also reports on sending brussels a final offer, tory
faithful over brexit. somethings also got to do tomorrow, isn't a? of the conservative party conference, he's got to rally the party faithful is well behind this plan that we still don't know the full details of. yes, and he's supposedly writing the speech himself, he is very, very busy. the ft flushes this out a little bit more, so it's talking about effectively, we are all out of the customs union, hence checks on the customs union, hence checks on the island of ireland, which of course the eu has always said no, no, no, so has ireland, but that the south of ireland in the north of ireland will remain effectively within the single market, and this all ireland agri— food arrangement that's been talked about for a while, but they are going to add industrial goods to that. no indication whether they are going to have people in this. if you are in northern ireland, can you walk, drive, easily into the republic and back again? that's a good point, we haven't heard about that yet.
that would be freedom of movement of people, which... the thing is, it's a 310 mile border, it's got like 210 crossings oi'i border, it's got like 210 crossings on it, which is more crossings than the whole of the eu's eastern side. so,... see, it's not all about customs, it's not all about security. it's about the good friday agreement as well. it's about what the people wanted to make that happen, and it's frightening that, you know, that we are in danger of that now also. yes, and the most worrying fit for me in here, i'm not quite sure what it means, but effectively, this will be in place in 2025, which would keep northern ireland or us linked to the eu for nine years after the referendum vote. interesting here, it says, after four years, referendum vote. interesting here, it says, afterfour years, bearing in mind the telegraph gives very good briefings from borisjohnson personally, i should think pretty close to what's going on, after four yea rs, close to what's going on, after four years, the northern ireland assembly, which hasn't met for two yea rs, assembly, which hasn't met for two years, remember, it's nonexistent at the moment, but afterfour years, so
2025, no, 2023, the northern ireland assembly would be free to choose whether to remain aligned to the eu in the future, or return to following british rules. which sounds a lot, to me, like if northern ireland assembly ever actually reconvenes, they are effectively going to have a vote of independence. let's move on, that's been talked about tonight. very quickly, mention of this, i don't know what your thoughts are, either of you, but this is a story that doesn't seem to be leaving the pages. particularly the garden. —— the guardian. new issues raised on the guardian. new issues raised on the prime ministers links with jennifer khoury. yes, this is about her getting an entrepreneur visa, which is something that's been mentioned previously, but the guardian's found out that the person who granted her the visa was someone that she may or may not have previously known when she was operating with the mayor's office, and having grants and so i'm given to her by them. there's no indication if he's done anything right or wrong, just that there is a connection there. basically, if your scandal has not gone away after a week or two, you have got big
problems. is thatjust a determined newspaper? no, this is a story the sunday times broke a week and have ago now, started, and it's got progressively worse and worse and worse, now we've got the police investigation, and this is potentially very serious for borisjohnson, because it's all about behaviour whilst in public office. and how you behave, and whether proper roles where followed. so, also her laptop is missing, apparently. who knows where it is. who knows what's on it. i think as you said, it's merely to do with borisjohnson's private life, he could get past that, but when it becomes talked about entrepreneur visa is being granted when it comes to talk about the spending of public and taxpayer's money for his friends... is very serious. we met these are all allegations, that's why there's all allegations, that's why there's a police investigation. i know what you're saying, when you are the prime minister. the scrutiny is very, very high, from all levels, and that's why the stories emerge,
but let's see what comes of the police investigation. on the front page of the ft, their main story is hong kong. which shows both sides of today, really. the 70 years of communist rule, and then, with the protesters wanted to do, which they we re protesters wanted to do, which they were told not to do, which is protest. to make yet, it's not really communism either, because the reason that china is in celebratory mood, and it has done so well over the past 70 years is that very recently, it's followed this capitalist mac methodology, yet remained a totalitarian state, the massive state control from before. and it's basically made a deal with its people saying, we will give you, try and pass you some financial prosperity in return for your freedom, and hong kong, which is one of the wealthiest parts of china, has said actually, no that's not enough, we still want freedom too. so how long can this go on for? how long will you have people beating protesters with batons? let's talk
about scrutiny, these are very different times to the times in tenements where, aren't they? because you've got social media, they can be easily organised. and you can get more people there, and you can get more people there, and you can get more people there, and you can keep the movement going, so china seemed to be struggling with us china seemed to be struggling with usa china seemed to be struggling with us a little bit, and the world watches as well, doesn't it. the world is watching, and the world is aware in these re—education camps that are going. but you know, they are saying there is no force that can obstruct the advance of the people's republic of china. in china is ever more powerful, the belton road initiative, you know, they are spreading their influence everywhere. and it's very worrying, and hong kong, you know, it really is dreadful to see what's happening there. well, the west's attitude has always been, the as they became more capitalist and globalised, they would have to open up and become more free, because freedom of democracy was sort of infect them,
and it doesn't seem to be happening that way. it seems to be that totalitarianism is coming out. and although it they relax that policy, they are incredibly controlling of their own people in all sorts of ways. before we move on, there is a police investigation intojennifer curry, again,... just to make that clear. the eye has just come in, as we came to air. a lot of newspapers playing catch—up. —— on the royal couple, who have launched a legal battle against her newspaper, the mail on sunday. over, they say, the printing of a private letter from the couple. but this has led to a heartfelt statement that's released tonight by prince harry. and it's quite a statement, isn't it? . very powerful. very strong. and i think, there are a number of
newspapers, and i don't think any of them are immune to it, who have survived the levinson scandal. we can show you the statement actually. it's long as well. he talks about his mother as well. he talks about his mother, and how she was commoditized, and you are talking about newspapers that are treating the roles as a different kind of person. and there are fundamental ethical rules in it so, and the code of conduct about how you treat individuals and if you are going to invade anybody‘s privacy come you need to have public defence, and so on and so forth, and i think defence, and so on and so forth, and ithink in defence, and so on and so forth, and i think in some cases, especially with the royal family, i think in some cases, especially with the royalfamily, we i think in some cases, especially with the royal family, we are very used to saying, because they are royal, there is fundamentally a public interest defence in that, but megan merkel is less royal, she is not going to be in line to be cleaned, harry is not in line to be king. they have more right to privacy then perhaps those who are in direct line. and it's very difficult, obviously, if you are royal, and william and harry have been brought up, they have always
known this level of certainty, they have known all their life. but of course, harry's mother, diana, came into that, the same with meghan, 0k, she was a hollywood star, it's not the same at all. the scrutiny that you are under. the attention that you are under. the attention that you get. you know, harry... but they are not talking about, they are not complaining about scrutiny. you are right... people want to know so much... he refers to as a relentless campaign of propaganda. he compares it to bullying. these are quite serious allegations, not just bullying. these are quite serious allegations, notjust against bullying. these are quite serious allegations, not just against this newspaper, but against the tabloid press. is there a danger that now that we've got a hollywood movie star in the royal family, that we've got a hollywood movie star in the royalfamily, that that we've got a hollywood movie star in the royal family, that all of those rules and regulations that you're talking about, susan, actually, a lot of them came in because of the death of princess diana, and the way the paparazzi chased her, the global paparazzi. they have been relaxed a little bit. well, they have been relaxed, people have just got back they are being
relaxed about them. and i think to some extent from i think the public, the reading public have forgotten some of this stuff. especially as it relates to megan. i think some journalists and editors choosing not to, they certainly haven't forgotten it, but are choosing to say that they don't have to follow it. like there was with diana, you know, we we re like there was with diana, you know, we were all like, it's awful, you know, it's awful the way her privacy was constantly invaded, but we were all so neck soaking it up, we couldn't get enough, we were insatiable, and the same with meghan. i mean meghan and harry are the rock stars of the royal family. she's so glamourous, beautiful... they give a lot. they don'tjust cut ribbons. they are out and about, they do a lot more media interviews, they do a lot more media interviews, the royalfamily, they do a lot more media interviews, the royal family, than they do a lot more media interviews, the royalfamily, than they they do a lot more media interviews, the royal family, than they ever used. the access is certainly better than he used to be, they are a lot more open. at the other thing that prince harry mentions, and what i think is a fascinating statement that the newspapers are scouring over to get in tonight i'm a he also talks about how different it is now compared to the time of his mother. that social media and retweets and
facebook and instagram, they make the news, real news, they make fake newsreel news. and it also makes these stories that he says are untrue, oran these stories that he says are untrue, or an invasion of privacy... and inflates them. there was a study, interestingly, there was a study, interestingly, there was a study done at mit done that vagueness go six times further and faster than genuineness, and the reason for that is who are more likely to share something if it disgusts, or shocks, or appals likely to share something if it disgusts, orshocks, orappals you. so if someone gives you some terrible news that says, you know, chris rogers for the bbc has been shoplifting or something, you go great, i must share that with people. that is completely untrue, by the way. the i have no evidence of that whatsoever. we will leave it there for now. that's it for the papers this hour. in a moment a round up of the news — susie and katherine will be back at 11:30 for another look at the front pages. thank you for now, and goodbye. where did you get your type from?m was a christmas gift actually. ties, white shirts and socks.
thank you for now, and goodbye. hello there. we have seen some very heavy rain across the country today, particularly through northern england and the isle of man, that brought the localised flooding, but the rainy is weaving its way south and east as we speak, and we are likely to see an improving story. but that's allowing the floodgates to open to a cold or northerly flow across the country, and that is going to allow those temperatures to fall away quite sharply. so first thing tomorrow morning, don't be surprised, it is going to be a bit ofa surprised, it is going to be a bit of a chilly start. as temperatures fall low enough in sheltered rural glens of scotland for a touch of frost. so, chilli first thing, but wednesday, not a bad day. for many of us, it will be dry, settled, and sunny. so with some sunshine around, that will hopefully help. at that northerly wind will drive in a few showers across the north and east, and at the same time, we will see
more cloud down into the southwest. sandwiched in between the two, reasonable they but temperatures struggling after that chilly start. we are likely only to see highs of 11-15d. so we are likely only to see highs of 11—15d. so as we move out of wednesday, well, it doesn't look as though we are likely to see a change, after that chilly field two things on wednesday, we draw your attention out into the atlantic. we have this warmer orange tone, the warmer rest it's circulating around this area of low pressure. it's a southerly wind, it's driving and more warmth, all connected to this deep area of low pressure. now, i am sure you are aware that that is the x remnants of hurricane lorenzo, which is going to drift its way to the rest of the uk, and going to interact on thursday with northern ireland, and with ireland as well. so bring heavy rain for a time, severe gales here, and some pretty rough seas. further inland, across much of the western half of the uk, we will see gale force gusts of winds and the clouds starting to arrive, it should stay dry for most of us during daylight hours, just
eastern areas clinging on to the best of any sunshine. but then as we move out of thursday into friday, things will start to change. there is still a level of uncertainty as to the track that this low pressure is likely to take. but at the moment, it could push its way steadily eastwards, that's going to move its way through northern ireland, there will be a spell of wet weather across eastern england for a wet weather across eastern england fora time, and wet weather across eastern england for a time, and then the low will almost slow down and we can considerably, grinding to a halt across southern england. so as we move out of friday, it looks likely we will see rain easing away, and then into the weekend, it looks likely that we will see some showers, and just... that's said, ta ke showers, and just... that's said, take care.
this is bbc news. the headlines at 11:00pm: borisjohnson will submit his plans for a brexit deal to brussels tomorrow. he will tell the eu it is his final offer, and there will have to be customs checks on the island of ireland. there will have to be a system for customs checks away from the border. now, we think that those checks can be absolutely minimal and nonintrusive, and won't involve new infrastructure. the duchess of sussex sues the mail on sunday. prince harry says he won't see his wife victimised by the press as his mother was. the worst violence in hong kong so far, as a protestor is left in a critical condition after being shot in the chest.
