10:30 pm
the winds actually ease by the afternoon but still enough of a wind on the north sea to push waters onshore into norfolk and suffolk, coastal swelling as we will have high tides here as well. a cooler feel to the north of the uk once again to start this week. for the rest of the week, it is still looking pretty unsettled. we will see pressure systems rolling through to the north of the uk, high pressure neverfar to the south. thejet stream up here to the north just keeping us feeding this system in. what we will notice there is the fronts dive down close to the areas of high pressure. we lose much of the rain on them so for england and wales actually very, very little in the way of rain to come through the next seven days. these are our accumulations. you can see for western scotland, particularly the north—west, perhaps we will get up to 60,
10:31 pm
70 millimetres, a couple of inches of rain before we are through where the fronts clip in here. certainly though tuesday, not much to report in the way of wet weather for the uk. a north—westerly breeze. actually much milder to the south of the uk once again, temperatures 12 or 13 degrees. temperatures up as well to 9 degrees in aberdeen, some showers to the north—west of scotland. wednesday, not too much to report either. a front tries to trickle its way into the north—west of the uk. more cloud for northern ireland, some rain for northernmost scotland. for many though, yes, a breezy day but fine with some bright or sunny spells and temperatures in double figures. thursday there is a chance of us seeing some rain sinking its way south across the uk, perhaps some rain getting into wales. across southern england, it will be nothing more than sunlight and patchy drizzle. you can see for england and wales, it is looking pretty fine really, well on into next weekend, but for the north—west of scotland, we do stay on a rather unsettled footing.

hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the political commentator, jo phillips and nigel nelson, political editor of the people and sunday mirror. tomorrow's front pages. the sunday times leads on the agreement between the prime minister and the chancellor that the planned rise on national insurance will go—ahead after calls to scrap the increase over cost—of—living fears. the telegraph features a picture of the prime minister

as the uk ramps up it's deployment to ukraine — but leads on the government's response to the afghanistan crisis in the summer. the paper says borisjohnson's aide watched cricket as kabul fell to the taliban. the express leads on the uk's response to the crisis in ukraine — with britain sending more troops, jets and warships. and the guardian says the government are accused of what it calls a levelling—up stunt to save the prime minister's job. we'll crack on straightaway and start off with, and typically i have just lost my list, are, there we go, the times. rishi sunak and boris johnson together with this editorial and, well, the editorialising in the sunday times but it looks like they

extraordinary — shipman alleging too? it is quite extraordinary but _ shipman alleging too? it is quite extraordinary but apparently, - shipman alleging too? it is quite extraordinary but apparently, it. extraordinary but apparently, it just conjures up this image of the student flat with carrie, the promise of�*s wife and her friends, who had apparently got a secret pin code to get in and out of the flat, the flat above the shop, if you like, sort of lounging around, having a lovely sociable time, while boxes of very secret, top secret material, for the prime minister's eyes only, were left littered around the flat, further running the article talks about boxes being left outside the door, you know, and they were still there the next morning. and they were there many hours later. what this conjures up, it is not so much the detail but it is this sort of shambolic, casual, you know, we are just having a good time, we don't take anything very seriously. some of this has come from dominic cummings, who as we know is out to get borisjohnson, come hell or high water, but it was
10:39 pm
he, apparently, who insisted, he got very concerned about this frat house atmosphere in the upstairs flat, and in a couple's private rooms at chequers. and, as a result, martin reynolds, the principal private secretary of the prime minister, insisted that the prime minister approved a secret intelligence request in his number ten office, because, you know, you can't have top secret stuff just lying because, you know, you can't have top secret stuffjust lying around. but, again, as i say, it is this sense of shambles.— but, again, as i say, it is this sense of shambles. and the way it is described, dominic _ sense of shambles. and the way it is described, dominic cummings - sense of shambles. and the way it is described, dominic cummings of- described, dominic cummings of course named in this article by tim, nigel, but the headlinesjust keep coming, when it comes to the prime minister, and asjo was saying, the culture behind the leadership. yes. culture behind the leadership. yes, and i think culture behind the leadership. yes, and i thinkjo _ culture behind the leadership. yes, and i thinkjo is _ culture behind the leadership. yes, and i thinkjo is absolutely right, it is plain — and i thinkjo is absolutely right, it is plain shambolic when you hear stories— it is plain shambolic when you hear stories like — it is plain shambolic when you hear stories like this. i'm not sure that

10:41 pm
russian invasion, and we are talking about this and the parties and sue gray and metropolitan police, but at the same time, we have got all of this on an international platform, jo, with a uk ramping up its firepower to deter russian invasion. we believe that borisjohnson will be travelling to eastern europe. we've got an increase in british troops, in theory, bolstering up the numbers there. and people are very worried about what is happening on the ukrainian border. weill. worried about what is happening on the ukrainian border.— the ukrainian border. well, they are, and the ukrainian border. well, they are. and i— the ukrainian border. well, they are. and i am — the ukrainian border. well, they are, and i am sure _ the ukrainian border. well, they are, and i am sure boris - the ukrainian border. well, they| are, and i am sure boris johnson are, and i am sure borisjohnson couldn't wait to get a return ticket to ukraine or anywhere else, if the alternative is being in the commons and having to report on sue gray's report, if it gets to him next week. i was interesting to hear your interview earlier this evening that ukrainian diplomat because there is a sense that, you know, this is terribly useful forjoe biden who
10:42 pm
has got problems at home, it is terribly useful for borisjohnson for reasons that we have already discussed. but what that person whose name i had forgotten was saying to you was that the troops have been there for a long time, nothing much has changed, except that, you know, the wider world is taking more interest. but we have got a very disunited europe on how to tackle this problem. we've got america and the uk trying to go in there and play hard and sabre rattle with troops and warships and things like that. but you have also got the ukrainian government themselves saying, actually, hang on a minute, stop talking up this panic because it is crippling our economy and we need to grow, we want to be strong and independent. so, there is an awful lot at stake here and i don't think it is as simple as it looks on paper. think it is as simple as it looks on -a er. , ~' think it is as simple as it looks on -a er. , ~ .. think it is as simple as it looks on --aer. , ~ .. think it is as simple as it looks on “aen , ~' ., ..
