tension between those ideas of europe, a capitalist club or social europe, a capitalist club or social europe and the french issue and particularly the polish and hungarian issue actually important because they are a challenge directly to the idea of social europe. the polish government and hungarian want to be able to run authoritarian governments, they have said they are leading an illiberal democracy and poland women have fought very hard to regain their right to abortion and most polish people actually want to stay and the eu so the union has a difficult challenge ahead which is how to keep poland in whilst protecting the rights of people in poland who look to the european union exactly for that. ~ . that. when we say social europe we are citin: that. when we say social europe we are citing social _

11:56 am
in store for most of us. a little on the breezy side and not completely dry. i think most of the time it's just going to be cloudy with a few glimmers of sunshine. let's have a look at the satellite picture, because there is a big low pressure in the north atlantic. you can see it here swirling around and its weather front is approaching the british isles. it is quite a wet weather front. you can see all of that rain here towards the west of our neighbourhood, but the good news is that as the weather front crosses the country, it is going to be fizzling away to just a few showers. it's also bringing a lot of mild airand infact the air across the atlantic right now is mild and this will be in place across the uk for the next few days. here is the forecast this afternoon. breezy and windy in places with gusts up to 50 miles an hour in the north west of the uk, with rain at times, but the rest of the country here dry with just fleeting spits and spots of rain and temperatures of around 14 or 15 celsius. here is that weather front making its journey towards east through the course of the night.
11:57 am
it will turn wet for a time around cornwall, devon, wales, around the irish sea and in glasgow. this is early in the morning on sunday at towards the east on sunday towards the east and the south—east, it should be a dry morning. and a very mild morning, 18 in some areas. 13 in some areas. but notice what happens to that weather front. it literallyjust breaks up into bits and pieces of rain, so on sunday in the afternoon, we are expecting sunny spells and fleeting showers, perhaps the odd heavy one, but it won't last for very long, because that breeze will push these showers along. the temperatures in one or two spots could get up to around 16 celsius. here is sunday night into monday, and again further showers and more of a breeze in the north of the uk. but these westerlies will be with us for quite some time into the week ahead. westerlies often bring showers to western areas of the uk, and you can see them here on monday. some also affecting wales, cornwall, devon, perhaps one or two running along the channel, too. the further east you are, the dryer and the sunnier your weather will be. 14 in hull and 14 in plymouth on monday.
11:58 am
let's have a look at the summary for the week ahead. if anything the temperatures might climb a little further. 17 in belfast, 17 in cardiff. perhaps even 18 in london. above the average for the time of year. towards the end of the week, it will turn more unsettled and a bit colder.
