arguably a more suitable job for her, dealing with all the levelling up her, dealing with all the levelling up stuff which, if labour doesn't answer the charge of levelling up, it won't win back redwall seats. absolutely. i think what seems to be clear here is keir starmer seems to be wanting to make a bit of a splash. i think it comes at a time when borisjohnson appears to have been dropping in the opinion polls, i think it was in you guv last week about 64% of people felt he was doing badly — this was clearly in relation to his pepa pig speech, which we all heard and widely discussed last week. and of course the torres lee scandal. so by coming in and throwing out some of these
10:47 pm
big names out there and putting them in prominent positions, like david lemi as foreign secretary, it makes sense with his great connexions abroad and his links to obama and the us. so i thinkjust by coming in and throwing those names and making people think about labour again, it's quite clear that's what keir starmer wants to happen, really. there's no geographical accident and the fact that, as karen was saying, yvette cooper represents a yorkshire seat, it's a change in the emphasis on more visible, high—profile people from the north of england and in the midlands constituencies, and maybe slightly fewer with north london constituencies like keir starmer�*s. let's move onto the front the telegraph. charles acknowledges slavery as barbados becomes

10:49 pm
things like that. so i think as it goes forward, it'll be interesting to see exactly what barbados does in terms of making it more obvious that they are a republic, basically. the best known _ they are a republic, basically. the best known of— they are a republic, basically. the best known of the caribbean leaders, she was one of the main representatives of island nations at the cop conference in glasgow — it has the advantage and, at the end of the day, barbados, like many of the countries, has been independent for decades. in some ways it's surprising the island nations haven't moved more quickly to ditch the monarchy, given they've been independent for half a century, in barbados's case. she independent for half a century, in barbados's case.— barbados's case. she has a very close personal _ barbados's case. she has a very close personal relationship - barbados's case. she has a very close personal relationship with | close personal relationship with prince _ close personal relationship with prince charles, and i think it's significant _ prince charles, and i think it's significant that he's travelled to barbados as a sign that it may be

of difficulties for professional sport, notjust horse racing. next to boxing — kell brook says he's going to send amir khan into retirement, after their long—awaited clash was finally confirmed. after years of failed negotiations, the long—term rivals have finally agreed to the all—british showdown on 19 february, in manchester. brook hasn't fought since being stopped in the fourth round by terence crawford a year ago, while khan won a points decision over australia's billy dib injanuary. england captain, joe root, said he has spoken to his former yorkshire team—mate, azeem rafiq, and they plan to meet up after the ashes tour in australia. rafiq has said he thinks the english game is "institutionally racist" and he was hurt that root couldn't "recall" any instances of racism occuring. whilst they played together at yorkshire. we've exchanged a few messages since, and hopefully when we finish this tour, we will get the opportunity to sit down and talk, you know, about this whole
10:56 pm
situation, about how we can move the game forward. and, you know, as i mentioned in my statement, as well, along with talking to azeem rafiq, i wanted to speak to patel at the club, and those dialogues have started, as well. so i think it's important that we keep finding ways of bettering the sport, finding ways how we can individually affect things for the better, and make a real change in this. seven—time champion ronnie 0'sullivan is through to the last 16 of snooker�*s uk championship. he beat long—time rival mark king by six frames to three at the barbican, making a century and five 50—plus breaks in another excellent performance. he'll face noppon saengkham or stuart bingham in the next round. but three—time uk championship winnerjohn higgins is out. he lost to china's zhao xintong, 6—5. before we go, some sad news to bring you. a pioneer of the golfing world, lee elder, has died at the age of 87.

the american was the first black man to play in the masters, making history in 1975 at a tournament many saw as an embodiment of the racism that was a large part of the sport in america at the time. the lpga have described him as "the definition of a trailblazer". that's all your sport for now. over on the bbc sport website, you can hearfrom tiger woods and why he doesn't expect to return to the tour full—time, following his car accident in february. but from me and the team for now, goodnight. hello there. after a very cold few days, milder air has been working its way in from the west. you can see these orange shades developing on our air mass chart as these westerly winds settle in. still, though, that cold air clinging on in the far north of scotland. but for most, it is a much milder start to tuesday, but a very cloudy start, some mist and murk, some patchy rain and drizzle.
10:58 pm
and then, into the afternoon, we will see some heavier rain returning into northern ireland, getting into western parts of scotland — whereas parts of england and wales will see a few bright or sunny spells. but the afternoon temperatures up to 11—12 celsius — much milder than it has been away from the far north of the uk. now through tuesday night, we'll see outbreaks of rain pushing eastwards, potentially some quite strong winds for a time, as well. and then, by the end of the night, well, the winds start to come back down, and it also will start to feel a little bit colder again. so, a chillier couple of days on the way through wednesday into thursday. there will be some dry weather, but some showers around, as well.
