9:33 pm
we will carry on as we thought we had someone that in central lobby but that does not seem to be the case. the big question and i think this honestly factored in the minds of a lot of mps today is if not boris then who? which other conservative mps can reach the parts that boris johnson conservative mps can reach the parts that borisjohnson can? conservative mps can reach the parts that boris johnson can?— that boris johnson can? nobody is reall sure that boris johnson can? nobody is really sure because _ that boris johnson can? nobody is really sure because apart - that boris johnson can? nobody is really sure because apart from - that boris johnson can? nobody is l really sure because apart from boris johnson, _ really sure because apart from boris johnson, there is not an obvious candidate — johnson, there is not an obvious candidate to lead. this is a totally different— candidate to lead. this is a totally different situation of course when theresa _ different situation of course when theresa may faced her own votive no—confidence when boris johnson himself— no—confidence when boris johnson himself was looming in the wings so lar-e himself was looming in the wings so large witt— himself was looming in the wings so large will stop but now there are various— large will stop but now there are various people suggested as possible candidates and of course inevitably attehtioh _ candidates and of course inevitably attention will turn to senior officials _ attention will turn to senior officials such as the foreign secretary and the chancellor, but actually _ secretary and the chancellor, but actually there's been a lot of talk about— actually there's been a lot of talk about a _ actually there's been a lot of talk about a compromise candidate, perhaps— about a compromise candidate, perhaps someone like ben wallace but was someone like that or indeed with the others, _ was someone like that or indeed with the others, they are not particularly well known in the public — particularly well known in the public. to the represent a big gamble — public. to the represent a big gamble for anyone who is thinking

9:38 pm
and what it means is as a government we can move on and focus on the stuff i think really matters to people. and... let me... allies want her to no people. and... let me... allies want her to go straightaway _ people. and... let me... allies want her to go straightaway and _ people. and... let me... allies want her to go straightaway and how i people. and... let me... allies want her to go straightaway and how can i her to go straightaway and how can you possibly... l her to go straightaway and how can you possibly- - -_ you possibly... i have a far bigger mandate from my _ you possibly... i have a far bigger mandate from my own _ you possibly... i have a far bigger i mandate from my own parliamentary colleagues for instance that i had in 2019. n, ., colleagues for instance that i had in 2019. ., ., . ., ., in 2019. margaret thatcher had a re in 2019. margaret thatcher had a pretty clear _ in 2019. margaret thatcher had a pretty clear mandate _ in 2019. margaret thatcher had a pretty clear mandate in - in 2019. margaret thatcher had a pretty clear mandate in the i in 2019. margaret thatcher had a i pretty clear mandate in the election if she had to go... i’m pretty clear mandate in the election if she had to go. . ._ if she had to go... i'm grateful to colleagues _ if she had to go... i'm grateful to colleagues and _ if she had to go... i'm grateful to colleagues and i'm _ if she had to go... i'm grateful to colleagues and i'm grateful- if she had to go... i'm grateful to colleagues and i'm grateful for. if she had to go... i'm grateful to. colleagues and i'm grateful for the colleagues and i'm gratefulfor the support they have given me. and of course i understand we need to do now is come together as a government, as a party and that is exactly what we can now do. and what this gives us is the opportunity to put behind us all the stuff that i know the media have quite properly wanted to focus on for a very long time and to do ourjob which is to
9:39 pm
focus on the stuff that i think the public actually want us to be talking about, which is what we are doing to help the people in this country and all the things we are doing to take this country forward. so what this means tonight is that we can focus on exactly that. we haveis we can focus on exactly that. we have is what we are doing to help people with the cost of living, with what we are doing to clear the covid—19 backlogs and what we are doing to make streets and team unity safer by putting more police out. and it gives us the opportunity to continue to unite, to level up and to strengthen our economy. we are going to go through a continuing difficult time because of the inflationary pressures that the world is experiencing, but we have a lot of natural strength. not least the lowest unemployment since 1974 and what i think is important about tonight and forgive me as i will say it again, i think this is very good
9:40 pm

note, what we are going to do now is take the opportunity to unite and deliver. and that's we want to do. are you ruling out a snap election? is that not the only way to stop you from being a lame—duck? what is that not the only way to stop you from being a lame-duck?— is that not the only way to stop you from being a lame-duck? what we want to do is net from being a lame-duck? what we want to do is get on — from being a lame-duck? what we want to do is get on and _ from being a lame-duck? what we want to do is get on and use _ from being a lame-duck? what we want to do is get on and use this _ to do is get on and use this moment which i think is whatever you may say, i think is decisive and conclusive and continue with our priorities. and i think those are... so you are really got a snap election, yes? taste so you are really got a snap election, yes?— so you are really got a snap election, yes? so you are really got a snap election, es? ~ . ., ., election, yes? we are going through a eriod election, yes? we are going through a period with — election, yes? we are going through a period with people with _ election, yes? we are going through a period with people with the - election, yes? we are going through a period with people with the cost i a period with people with the cost living and we are. £200 for 8 million of the most vulnerable households in the country plus a lot of other support, £400 to help absolutely everybody with the cost of energy. the only reason we can do thatis of energy. the only reason we can do that is because we have the robust economy, unemployment at the lowest level for 50 years. that is... those of the things that really matter to
9:42 pm
our country right now. and, yeah, i am pleased because we now have the chance to talk exclusively about those priorities and not about all sorts of stuff that i know is of obsessive and compulsive interest to my beloved friends in the media. but i don't think really matters as much as the agenda of the government. you are in a worse — as the agenda of the government. you are in a worse position than theresa may was after her vote in 2018 and you think this is a good result? i think is an extremely good, positive, conclusive, it is as a result which enables us to move on, to unite and to focus on delivery. it is exactly what we are going today. it is exactly what we are going toda . �* it is exactly what we are going toda . . ., it is exactly what we are going toda . �* ., . ., it is exactly what we are going toda . . ., _, i. . today. and to confirm, you are really a snap — today. and to confirm, you are really a snap election, - today. and to confirm, you are really a snap election, just i today. and to confirm, you are really a snap election, just yes j today. and to confirm, you are i really a snap election, just yes or no? i really a snap election, 'ust yes or no? . ., , really a snap election, 'ust yes or no? . . , . ., , no? i certainly have no... i see no point in focusing _ no? i certainly have no... i see no point in focusing on anything else | point in focusing on anything else and i'm certainly not interested in

was the very weak that there was do to be controversial legislation put forward or published we were going to see that new controversial bill coming forward that would have potentially overridden parts of the prexy arrangements to affect northern ireland. so those checks on goods crossing the i receipt that is so disliked by the democratic unionists party here that collapsed the government over in a protest and that bill could have gone some way to allaying their fears about that trade border down the irish sea. now if there had been a leadership contest, borisjohnson was to step down, that perhaps with disrupted all of that but who knows what form legislation may have taken in future? there may be some quiet relief perhaps behind the scenes amongst the dup because all the dup feel very strongly that boris johnson has betrayed them in the past, they will of hope that perhaps up past, they will of hope that perhaps up legislation now is going in some way in the direction that they would like to see. but for other parties, some opposition particular from nationalists and some others to boris johnson's plans

very much indeed for that and that is it from me for the moment. when he rested on bbc online and on bbc news channel. hello again. we had some pretty big weather contrasts and temperature contrasts across the uk for monday, some lovely sunshine across parts of south—west england, northern ireland, and here in the highlands of scotland barely a cloud in the sky. but it wasn't like that everywhere. across large parts of england and wales, the skies looked rather like this, for example, in lowestoft in suffolk. on the satellite picture, you can see where those breaks in the cloud were, and across the western side of scotland, with the sunshine, we had some pretty high temperatures for the time of year, with tyndrum getting up to 22 degrees celsius in the highlands of scotland. but where that cloud stuck, into the middle part of the afternoon, temperatures were still loitering at around 12 degrees in parts of suffolk, ten degrees cooler than in the scottish highlands. tuesday's weather charts now.
9:56 pm
low pressure still in the north sea, still bringing the risk of an odd patch of rain into north—east england, where it stays quite cloudy. for most parts of the uk, there'll be a bit more sunshine, but a scattering of showers will develop through the afternoon across england and wales. but it will feel a lot warmer, temperatures more widely getting into the low twenties. and for some, that could mean a jump up in temperatures by, what, nine degrees celsius or so compared with what we had on monday. now, looking through tuesday night, we're going to see low pressure move in off the atlantic. this brings a band of fairly heavy rain northwards and eastwards. we hang on to some clearer skies across the north—east, so this is where we'll see some of the lowest temperatures into wednesday morning. otherwise, temperatures on the mild side, 12 to 14 degrees celsius. but with that on wednesday, we've got more rain in the forecast, this area of low pressure. outbreaks of rain will extend north— wards and eastwards through the day, followed by a mixture of sunshine and showers further west. these showers across england
9:57 pm
and wales could be heavy and thundery, and it will be windy for wales and south—west england, with winds gusting to near gale force. at the same time, this first band of rain will work into scotland, so here we'll see some of the lower temperatures. where we see sunny spells between those showers across england and wales, temperatures still into the high teens to low twenties, which won't feel too bad. towards the end of the week, another area of low pressure is set to move in off the atlantic. this one's quite a deep one. it works to the north—west of the country, and we'll see weather fronts moving their way northwards and eastwards across the country. now, for thursday we'll probably start on a dry note with sunshine, but our band of rain working its way into northern ireland before the end of the afternoon. perhaps one or two showers elsewhere but again with a bit of sunshine. june sunshine is strong, so it has a big effect on the temperatures, high teens to low twenties. friday, a windier day. we're looking at gales developing in the north—west of the country. some heavy showers perhaps merging into some longer outbreaks of rain. there'll also be showers extending
9:58 pm
eastwards across england and wales. a blustery day for most of us, but still the temperatures not so bad, 18 to about 23 degrees celsius. on into the following weekend, well, there's a reasonable consistency in the models. the main difference is some have the low pressure here, some to the north—west of scotland. but it doesn't have a great deal of an impact on the uk's weather. the winds would tend to come in from the west or the south—west through saturday and sunday, and we'd have sunny spells and some passing scattered showers. temperatures into the high teens to low twenties, as well. reasonable confidence in the forecast. it is going to turn more unsettled later in the week.

tonight at 10:00pm: borisjohnson boris johnson manages to borisjohnson manages to survive as prime minister but he suffers a substantial rebellion among conservative mps in tonight's confidence vote. the vote in favour of having confidence as borisjohnson in leader was 211 votes. the vote against was 148 votes. and therefore i can announce that the parliamentary party does have confidence. it means that over 40% of the parliamentary party declared a lack of confidence in their leader, much higher than many had expected. mr johnson's team insisted the result was decisive. a renewal of his
