hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are economics correspondent for the telegraph lizzy burden and the deputy political editor of pa, harriet line. tomorrow's front pages, starting with, ‘playing poker with our lives‘ is the headline on the front page of the manchester evening news after greater manchester is put into tier 3 restrictions — without a deal. the daily mirror also uses a similar headline saying the pm is playing poker with the pandemic. the ‘i' picks up on an offer still being ‘on the table' — saying there's 48 hours left — to create a safety net for workers — as the stand—off continues. the guardian has andy burnham accusing ministers of bullying the region into accepting less than the £65m final request for support for businesses. while the times says boris johnson pulled the plug on talks over the scale of the funding — despite the two sides
being separated by only £5m. the metro carries the accusation from the mayor — that the prime minister has placed the area into a ‘brutal‘ indefinite lockdown. according to the daily mail — police have urged pubs and restaurants in london — to check on customers — to ensure they stick to lockdown rules. and the daily star highlights a loophole in england's three—tier system — suggesting the prime minister, his adviser, dominic cummings, and health secretary, matt hancock, can all meet up for a working pub lunch. so, let's begin. we are going to start with the manchester evening news playing poker with our lives. from the telegraph, we look there, you can see the manchester evening news, is the prime minister. a bit of fun here. borisjohnson illustrated as thejoker. here. borisjohnson illustrated as the joker. the here. borisjohnson illustrated as thejoker. the question is, who was thejoker. the question is, who was the gambler. some people are
accusing andy burnham of being the gambler here because he turned it down a rescue package seemingly for the sake of £5 million and there was the sake of £5 million and there was the unforgettable moment today when the unforgettable moment today when the city council leader showed him a text saying that the uk government was only prepared to offer £22 million of financial support and he'd asked for 90 million and he came down to 65 and administers really prepared to meet him at 60 and at that point, andy burnham walked away. but matt hancock the health secretary system of the £60 million offer is still on the table and so people are saying that it is andy burnham who is the gambler. 0ther andy burnham who is the gambler. other people is the gambler. 0ther people are saying that the government lowballed greater manchester and andy burnham says that people in manchester face a winter of hardship and that is on the cover unless they get this funding. and asking for a breakdown of why he needed all
of this money and they could not give an answer or and they could not give an answer or a breakdown. there was another face on this card of the joker and a breakdown. there was another face on this card of thejoker and i cannot work out who it is. it is in such small picture, i was at the look at it upside down. listening to answer, but i'm going to be focusing on the picture. you know who this, please tell me. there he is your view of that from page?” please tell me. there he is your view of that from page? i think it is matt hancock the health secretary. looking down at his face in comments, yes, it's a really striking front page, not surprised. the papers kind of delicates colours to the manchester mass. a taking a step back from some of these political wrangling as well, appreciating that millions of people from friday are going to be under much stricter coronavirus restrictions and while all of this
politics is about 65 million or 60 million is hugely important to those people. particularly those whose lives are going to be affected, there are 2.8 million lives were going to be incredibly changed because these restrictions and limits on socialising indoors and private gardens, as well as pubs and bars closing if they cannot have substantial meals. really quite stringent measures. manchester forcing the highest level of lockdown subtitle, number ten at war and compensation. we have been seen earlier that this exposes pre—existing things we have known about forever in the segment of the pandemic coming to the fore in a way that perhaps they did not imagine an april. regional inequality is not a new problem but the leveling of policy that the government has elected on is not a new idea even though it's kind of slogan but, looks pretty bad for the government
at the moment that andy burnham is accusing the government of leveling down the regions. so, this crisis today across all the different pages isn't the leveling of policy looking very good. but pm says that if greater manchester hadn't been offered more money, it would have been out of kilter with what it had given merseyside and lancashire.“ of fairpoint? lots of areas could go into tier} of fairpoint? lots of areas could go into tier3and of fairpoint? lots of areas could go into tier 3 and so, i'll be very expensive for the government and a lot of people are saying that england is going to a back door lockdown and if it continues and other regions going to tier 3, each single time that happens, there's this negotiation, stand up for the regional area of that can be really expensive. the regions save any more
money in their cases that we have heard and that is a local politics works. you are meant to argue for your region to get as much as you can, particularly if these are poor regions. and covering the treasure, bike and the treasuryjust sayest everything? that is what people will be asking this evening, why not and why over £5 million, which in treasury terms is actually a really small amount of money. the issue is that we do not know how long this pandemic is going to last. how wide the tier restrictions are going to be. whether he might end up with all of the country in a month's time or so being put under tier 3 restrictions and expect more areas will be under these measures and potentially this week. is a really difficult call financially for the treasury because he has come in the short—term, this is very much money of £5 million and if we are going to use these restrictions for many more months, can the country really afforded them people on different sides of the debates leverage
different views and it is a quite interesting interview that he can rest you —— you can resurrect an economy be cannot resurrect the dead. and this is so crucial and that hasn't impact on peoples lives as well in their well—being. so that is two different sides of a coin entirely. talking most of the numbers. is notjust a question of the financial numbers but the health numbers. the government is saying that the health system will be overwhelmed by local leaders saying that intensive care would already be the stretched at this time of year anyway. even with out covid—19. it is notjust the debate about anyway. even with out covid—19. it is not just the debate about £5 million but is also a debate about whether the numbers justify going into such a severe level of restrictions and imposing them on all of these kinds of businesses. live look at a different angle of
the daily mail now. it is not about the daily mail now. it is not about the lockdown, but something else. it shows us the papers, plunged into new areas. chilling letter to landlords, get photo ids to stop drinkers for breaking rules. if we all go to a pub in london, our papers to be checked by the landlord to see what households would be living in? is that what it's meant to be? if the three of us went for lunch, we might be up to get away with it because of the work exemptions. this loophole, but do you get a sense that landlords would enjoy doing this? no. certainly not. the daily mail saying it's an unacceptable demand on landlords and restau ra nt unacceptable demand on landlords and restaurant owners who might will be doing themselves out of business even with perfectly legitimate families going for lunch if they cannot prove that they're all living under the same roof and potentially
they may have to say goodbye to that business. and it's really concerning ata time business. and it's really concerning at a time where the hospitality industry is struggling anyway. and on the other hand, the government is under pressure to try to force these measures and london and we are to do ta ke to measures and london and we are to do take to restrictions where they are not able to socialise indoors and be that in the proper bar or restaurant to anyone who is not in your household and cannot do that outside. in the park, but not endorse or also in a private garden. and there is pressure for the government to find a way to make sure that these measures are not enforced and so they do actually have an effect of the question is whether or not it is right to ask members to do that or whether there is responsibility that should line the police. it almost takes me back to 20 years ago that if you went to a video store, you're such a short gas bill to rent a video sometimes the have proof of residence. it strikes me that would be
phenomenally complicated for landlords to look at different drivers licence, gas bills, figure out who lives where in semi—driver's licence is out of date, is this dead on arrival? give wizards and witches is time to take people to their tables and a special way, and one way, of the other. this is going to put a huge strain on the resources being policed as well as their actualjobs. and it's all a big brother now. people that we could be bit more like sweden and looking longingly at them more relaxed approach to lockdown, which is the opposite of this. but that did come with quite high fatality numbers in the first wave, of course. it but it's based on trust and doing things like this undermines trust and snooping on people undermines trust in the last few good paws i saw showed that only 32% by the
government was handling the pandemic well. this cannot possibly do much for that trust. let's move to the daily telegraph. there's a picture of a very smiling, and he speaks to the telegraph. do we see it. and it's about the bbc. and my eyes kind of home in on that. swapping quality for equality says geoffrey boycott. harriet, i ask you is in the spirit of impartiality. but you make of this? the bbc is criticised for having bias and yet here we have quite a contrasting opinion with them batting for the other side and the bbc has sacrificed quality for equality and they're saying that it is all about political correctness, gender and race that we work for them to you're wa ry race that we work for them to you're wary and frightened of saying anything in it is a minefield out
there and that is sad. he's making a very different point that you are to be so careful what you say, saying that that should not be the case to people who work for the broadcaster and yet, we are constantly hearing the argument that this presenter is biased in that presenters biased, and often accused of being bias from both the left and the right. an interesting point is made here and critical about an interview that she did after he is awarded this, which is controversial and he is critical of the fact that he was questioned about this when it should've been a nice interview about his knighthood. those who follow him a press be disappointed in this interview. reading an interview for, to see this form of criticism whether it is for or against, have you read it? 0ver for or against, have you read it? over the front page and that she said, your
colleague who mentioned, a 1998 conviction for domestic violence. it sounds a bit sour grapes and replace, and it's fairto say that if you do not agree with the bbc editorially, the bbc is meant to be all of ours and clearly so meant to be all of ours and clearly so jeffrey meant to be all of ours and clearly sojeffrey thinks that meant to be all of ours and clearly so jeffrey thinks that they have an agenda to push in their own ideology and sourgrapes agenda to push in their own ideology and sour grapes for me. we are going to go to the financial times now to a fascinating story about the front page that on another day would be a front page of many papers because this is a real clash of them having an antitrust lawsuit. the might of the us department ofjustice. with the us department ofjustice. with the might of google on the other side and the titanic, using all the cliches, flash to what the
department ofjustice says to break up department ofjustice says to break up monopolistic practices. it is a clash of the titans. and it 00:15:09,1000 --> 00:15:10,337 is trying to protect competition and they are claiming that google by nature of the platform works in referencing things like entry devices using exclusionary practices to suppress its rivals and it's kinda hard to think of the top your head of the true rivals that google has of course, they are out there but the suggestion here by the us is that google is actively suppressing them for their own advantage in google says the case is deeply flawed and since people use google because they choose to and not because they choose to and not because they choose to and not because they are forced to or they cannot find an alternative for their saying that actually this is bringing up search alternatives.
saying that actually this is bringing up search alternativeslj bringing up search alternatives.” use lastjeeves bringing up search alternatives.” use last jeeves in 1990 bringing up search alternatives.” use lastjeeves in 1990 83 happy at the time of dial up internet but i think since the turn of the millennium, you turn on the computer, you will find google immediately it's not even a choice, is it or is something that will come down too. we'll sing that we do have the choice, we're just not looking very hard? it'sjust the mark of google possible success. to me, the main thing about the story is the irony that the us is usually so proud of google in the defence google to the end when europe wants to put digital sales taxes on google and yet, here's the us government clamping down on google and it's too much of a giant witch, which way does want to treat google is very confusing to me. harriet, have you found any other way even from using a phone book? resorting
to old—fashioned tactics a phone book? resorting to old —fashioned tactics but a phone book? resorting to old—fashioned tactics but we are not going to go back to the times for the final story. and on the front page, a trade on this very carefully, it's as fair ladies, did not read any of these words, why women of the more objective sex in the science editor, women really are the science editor, women really are the fairer sex, and they are the more compassionate one too. is this science? it is, according to the couege science? it is, according to the college of southern carolina. it is so college of southern carolina. it is so beautifully written piece by them and it says that the trends even more pronounced in societies that are more equal. a get what you mean, is it science? it is a time the observation that some new people have been saying that female leaders
through the covid—19 crisis are more compassionate. they looked at the re ce ntly compassionate. they looked at the recently reelected prime minister and say that she is a young mum, she's got a young baby and she has done so competently and also so compassionately. and at the end of the day, while the studies authors and the peace say that this is only averages. so, it is not going to... so one paragraph. consistently, women say that there are more concerned about the virtues of compassion and purity than men. that is just the compassion and purity than men. that isjust the sink. compassion and purity than men. that is just the sink. if that really science, if you answer question saying that i'm very compassionate. imean saying that i'm very compassionate. i mean how does that work?m saying that i'm very compassionate. i mean how does that work? it shows that women of the right answers to the right questions. it doesn't associate here that women may not be the most tolerant. although, there isa the most tolerant. although, there is a nice piece of the end that's as
it is meant that if you randomly pick a it is meant that if you randomly picka man, it is meant that if you randomly pick a man, he will not be carrying, this is research on more or less a third of a million people in 67 countries. this is a vast survey and so, it may not be strictly science, but certainly is a pretty broad spectrum of opinion. lizzie, and your belief, this italian real life? lam both your belief, this italian real life? i am both compassionate and tolerant. that is of the papers and thank you. we shall see them soon. it is goodbye for now.
good evening. good evening i'm tt and this is your sports news where we start with the return of the champions league. chelsea were at home to europa league champions sevilla which ended goalless while in france an understrength manchester united struck late to beat last season's beaten finalists paris saint germain and watching was our sports correspondent katie gornall. just 58 days ago, paris st. germain superstars walked onto the champions league final, now it all starts again. the first game of the group stage is when anything still seems possible. against the odds manchester united quickly took charge winning a penalty that would bring forward their standing captain bruno fernandes to hop, skip and miss. there was hope, a second look which of the keeper had left his line, that meant a retake and this time fernandez held his nerve. this time he gets it spot on. but psg post one of europe prospect most important attacks. united would have expected a response but not like
this. and only goal from anthony martial and is no planning for that. and only goal from anthony martial and there is no planning for that. united put up a real victory over psg last time, and with that they pulled forward. marcus rashford delivered the winter there dominance deserved. united made a stuttering start to this season but they found their stride. less excitement at stamford bridge that was almost what chelsea wanted. after their defective issues this season edward was brought in and kept them it was a cagey first half. the europa league holders were trying to shake things up. notice i could find a breakthrough. chelsea had the better chances in a rare clean sheet from frank's side. not when they wanted but the they needed. so confirmation of those results while elsewhere lionel messi was among the scorers for barcelona in their? win over hunagarian's ferencvaros,
and alavaro morata scored both forjuventus in their victory over dynamo kyiv. for all the scores and reaction head to the bbc sport website. holders bayern munich will be without serge gnabry for their opening match against atletico madrid tomorrow after he tested positive for covid—i9. it came after he trained with his team mates earlier this afternoon with the german club releasing a statement saying the 25—year—old is in good health and is now self—isolating at home. aberdeen are up to third in the scottish premiership after a 4—2 win over bottom side hamilton at pittodrie. ryan edmondson scored twice for aberdeen who are now three points behind second placed celtic and seven behind leaders rangers. reading have gone top of the championship after a i—0 win at home to wycombe. they replace bristol city who lost i—0 at home to middlesbrough. elsewhere norwich are up to seventh. they had to wait until the 87th minute before grabbing the winner against a birmingham side who'd only just had a man sent off.
mario vrancic with the only goal of the game. elsewhere millwall moved up to fourth with a 2—0 win over luton at the den. conor mahoney got their second with just over ten minutes remaining. details have emerged of a breakaway competition — the european premier league — which would feature 18 of europe's biggest clubs. liverpool and manchester united are two of five english teams who have been approached. it would replace the champions league currently run by uefa. fifa are said to be involved and backing the proposals. in a statement the uefa president aleksander ceferin said... uefa strongly opposes a super league. the principles of solidarity, of promotion, relegation and open leagues are non—negotiable. it is what makes european football work and the champions league the best sports competition in the world. uefa and the clubs are committed to build on such strength not to destroy it to create a super league of10,12, even 2a clubs, which would inevitably become boring.
after ten years with the british cycling team ineos grenadiers, and before that team sky, chris froome began his final grand tour before he leaves the team, stage one of the vuelta a espana. nick parrott was watching. before the last grand tour of the year got under way, chris froome said he did not have any big expectations. it was just great to be on the starting line. given he had come back from crash injuries that could've ended his career, it is not surprising that he is grateful. having twice when this race and twice been runner—up, he had every reason to say that he was quietly optimistic. but that hope began to evacuate 11 miles from the finish. but he was slipping back, his team—mates kept on the attack. he said that it will be great for me to find out exactly where i am at and unfortunately, this is surely not where he wants to be. he trailed in more than 11 minutes behind. many had hoped that he could leave on a high note, but after the first day, it looks like the tour of spain
might end up being a lap of honour. british hopes are fairing much better at the giro d'italia where tao geoghegan hart remains fourth overall. the sixteenth stage was won by slovenia's jan tratnik after a hard fought battle with australia's ben 0'connor over the last eight miles. portugal's joao almeida managed to increase his overall lead to 17 seconds with five stages remaining. and that's all the sport for now. don't forget everything else you can head to the bbc sport website. hello. tuesday may not have been the sunniest day of the month thus far, but it ended on something of a high. water contrast there as we move into the new day to see some really
quite heavy rain moving into parts of england and wales. it will feel a little bit cooler across some areas. low pressure certainly dominating the weather through tuesday, throwing the weather front across the northern and western scotland, but down towards biscay that we look for the next development. that, in fact, is all tied in with storm barbara. the air is coming in from the south, so, it's not a cold start to the new day on wednesday, but it really will be a wet one across the southern areas and the rainjust keeps on coming through the morning, easily 30 to a0 mm quite widely. bits and pieces of the rain further to the north and the old weather fronts still producing rain across the northern western isles of scotland and the northwest of the mainland. but the odd drip and drab getting into northern ireland. come the afternoon, top temperatures 17 rather than 19 of tuesday, the rain becoming a little bit lighter as that area of low pressure and its energy gradually move away towards scandinavia. as you move into thursday, the isobars begin to open up a touch, a little ridge of high pressure just meanders in from the
atlantic. that is not to say that it will be completely dry day, certainly much drier for the greater part of england and wales, but the northerly ushers in showers to the eastern side of scotland, some getting into the north of england, the odd shower a little bit further towards the south of wales and maybe to the southeast. the highs of the day, if you're lucky, around 16. in lerwick, closer to 8 degrees. make the most of the dry weather on thursday, if that's the way, because here we are on friday with a new set of weather fronts bringing in the cloud and wind and rain back in from the atlantic and i'm really not promising anybody a dry day through friday, the rain starts off across northern and western parts but you'll see, yes, the band weakens as it works its way down towards to east anglia and even here, there will be a spot of rain. brighter skies falling off behind, temperatures pretty much where we would expect to see them for this time of year. and a quick look at the weekend, another set of fronts working their way across northern and
