weather is the one to cling onto. lots of sunshine across the bulk of the country for monday — we keep that cloud into the far north and west. temperatures, though, under light winds, dry and sunny after that chilly start, are likely to sit between 8—9 celsius. that's how it's looking, enjoy your week ahead. hello. this is bbc news. with me, annita mcveigh. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment, first the headlines. the man who took four people hostage at a synagogue in texas is confirmed to be a british man named malik faisal akram. his family say they are devastated and do not condone his actions. police here confirm malik faisal akram was originally from blackburn, and say they're helping with the investigation led by us authorities. labour leader sir keir starmer

says borisjohnson broke the law and should resign over a series of parties at downing street during coronavirus restrictions. i think the facts speak for themselves, i think the prime minister broke the law, i think he then lied about what had happened. novak djokovic has been deported from australia afterjudges rejected on public health grounds the unvaccinated tennis star's appeal to stay in the country. a british woman is missing in tonga after being washed away in the tsunami which hit the island. the amount of damage it's caused is still unclear. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are author andj ournalist yasmin alibhai—brown and chief sports reporter at the sun, martin lipton.

—— author and journalist. welcome, both. before we chat, a look at those front pages. the daily telegraph says borisjohnson has been questioned by sue gray over partying allegations as new signs of a tory grassroots backlash emerged. the guardian reports that borisjohnson has been accused of targeting the bbc in an attempt to save his own premiership, as the labour leader accused him of breaking the law by attending lockdown parties and then lying about it. the daily express says borisjohnson will fight tooth and nail to save his political future with attempts to level up the country with his proposed fightback — tagged operation red meat. according to the i, the prime minister's supposed promise to sacrifice aides and appease conservatives with new policies may not go far enough for minsters and consevative mps. and the metro says novak djokovic has been branded an "icon of anti—vaxxers" before being deported from australia, hours before his bid for an historic

public. the other stuff will be more important, i think, public. the other stuff will be more important, ithink, if public. the other stuff will be more important, i think, if we are going to have a fightback from government. it needs to be with good policy. but at the moment i don't think people are willing to listen, i would hazard a guess that the busiest man in the country at the moment it's probably graham brady's postman, he will have a lot of letters to deliver, the way things are going. what will decide everything is not policy initiatives being drawn up over the weekend, it is e—mails and responses that the conservative backbenchers, fearing for theirjobs and their seats in parliament, get from their constituents, and if it is sufficiently damning for the prime minister i don't think it matters what he offers, self—preservation will determine the actions of the tory backbenchers. $5 actions of the tory backbenchers. as you say, it is the question of
10:39 pm
whether people are listening to these other plans. yasmin, the guardian says the pm is accused of attacking the bbc to save his own skin, i can attest to the many rounds of cuts we have had here. martin was referring to how over resourced we might be but we have had lots of cuts in recent years. the daily express, pm fightback plan to level britain, this is another part of the plan to try to cement its leadership. take us through what the daily express says? the its leadership. take us through what the daily express says?— the daily express says? the daily ex-ress is the daily express says? the daily express is like _ the daily express says? the daily express is like a _ the daily express says? the daily express is like a court _ the daily express says? the daily express is like a court bulletin . the daily express says? the dailyj express is like a court bulletin for johnson's — express is like a court bulletin for johnson's government, but can i respond — johnson's government, but can i respond briefly to martin? one of the most — respond briefly to martin? one of the most astounding figures i have read in _ the most astounding figures i have read in recent weeks is the bbc world _ read in recent weeks is the bbc world service today is either watched _ world service today is either watched or listened to by 364 million — watched or listened to by 364 million people. there has been a
