11:01 pm
judges in california are beginning an appeal hearing to decide whether to overturn the suspension of president trump's executive order banning travellers from seven mainly muslim countries entering the us. earlier this evening, america's secretary of homeland security said that the president won't add more countries to the list. with me is kathryn stanczyszyn. this all began a few days ago with the executive order signed and the global public reaction to that band and then it got serious. and this is the front page of an appeal already that has been in this weekend. state of washington versus ronald trump, president of the united states. not only three orfour president of the united states. not only three or four weeks into president of the united states. not only three orfour weeks into his presidency and he is mired in this
11:02 pm
legal battle that is between the three main areas of power in the us. we go back to donald trump's ban. january 25 he issued an executive order basically replacing some aspect of immigration policy and saying that people from the predominantly muslim countries could no longer enter the us for a period of 90 days. widespread condemnation, as you said, from politicians, former politicians, civil rights groups and two states in particular. michigan and washington. they decided to bring action against this band because they said it was unconstitutional, not legal. they said it's because of several different amendments but also they say it is presuming people guilty of something before they actually are. they bring the legal action on friday. ajudge in a they bring the legal action on friday. a judge in a federal district court decides to uphold
11:03 pm
their legal action, allowing them to prepare for a fuller case. while thatis prepare for a fuller case. while that is happening, he decided this band of travel must be overturned —— band. in tweets, donald trump talks about how he was a so—called judge and also saying if there was a terror attack on us soil, it would be down to this judge. that is where we are out. this, tonight now, a fuller hearing, a appeal hearing in the next level of court up, the ninth district circuit court of appeals. it is starting in san francisco time three pm. that will be arguments from donald trump's lawyers that basically this overturn of the ban is putting the country at risk and threatening national security. arguments for the lawyers on the other side for the state of washington and minnesota saying that the idea of threatening security is not true because it only came in ten
11:04 pm
days ago and what about all the other times before that? and also that it other times before that? and also thatitis other times before that? and also that it is unconstitutional, again. thank you for bringing us up to date. i'm joined via webcam byjesse choper, a professor of constiutional law at the university of california, berkeley. thank you forjoining us, what do you think is going to happen now? where is this going or is this just trodden ground and we actually have no idea? well, this is all procedural. the issue is that there was a stay, to stay the initial ruling. the question is if the staid than could be sustained. highly unusualfor than could be sustained. highly unusual for the court of appeals, threejudges in unusual for the court of appeals, three judges in san unusual for the court of appeals, threejudges in san francisco unusual for the court of appeals, three judges in san francisco who are going to hear it, quite unusual
11:05 pm
for them to have an appeal and to hear argument by the lawyers as to whether a state should continue. —— stay. the quick and set is that whoever wins in this court is going to appeal to a higher body. —— the quick answer. 0ne to appeal to a higher body. —— the quick answer. one is all of the judges on the court of the night circuit and whoever comes out on that issue, they will then go to the supreme court. the supreme court does not automatically have to take it. they can deal with it or they can let the lower court ruling stand. i think that anyone who can predict the outcome of all of this, even though it is only procedural, even though it is only procedural, even though it is only procedural, even though the question is is it going to be in totally, is falling themselves. there are quite a few
11:06 pm
different arguments but can i ask you about the unconstitutional argument? there have been travel bans implemented before by the us. how were they allowed. the question is the scope of the power of the president versus the congress. the congress has specific authority in the constitution over immigration. they can keep out anyone they want. and they have. they have kept out people for all kinds of reasons. whether they would keep them out... we keep out full countries. we have limited quotas for different countries on immigration. you are very familiar with this in england.
11:07 pm
it's unprecedented for all of this to go on with all of these appeals simply on the stay of the order. if you get to the merits of it, the question is, what are they really trying to do? that is what the court is going to be asked to figure out. despite the fact that on the face of it, all president trump has done is that people from these seven countries can't come in. well, if thatis countries can't come in. well, if that is so, that might be all right. what they are going to argue is, no, this is simply a cover for excluding muslims and it is a religion. they are not simply excluding muslims who are not simply excluding muslims who are suspicious of any way of engaging in terrorism, they are excluding all muslims. in the
11:08 pm
executive order that president trump signed, he doesn't specifically states that this is because of a religion or that he is planning a religion. no, they have to go behind that and that's what makes it complicated. they have to determine not what it says on its face but what the intention and purpose of it was. that is done in some cases and thatis was. that is done in some cases and that is what they are going to have to do in this case in order to persuade the supreme court that this is unconstitutional, that he is excluding these people because of their religion. absolutely fascinating. i'm sure you are finding it fascinating yourself. thank you for speaking to the bbc. pleasure. there are still many people hoping to reach america are watching carefully around the world. let's speak to our correspondent in washington, richard lister.
11:09 pm
i suppose there is no point asking you how this might be played out because even to legal experts do not know. how is it going down in america, that —— the country that president trump is ruling? the first opinion poll suggested that most americans backed president trump's travel ban, not by much, but the polls seemed clear initially that there was a slight majority in favour of the travel ban. as it took hold and it was clear the chaos and destruction that was being caused and the uncertainty, it became much more level pegging about approval. now, a slight majority of the american people actually opposed the travel ban. really, the country is very divided. people are worried about whether or not the immigration system is catching everybody who
11:10 pm
comes in but at the same time, they don't like the idea that very draconian policies could change the nature of what it is to be an american. we will leave it there for a while because we can head straight to the knights district court where we can hear the appeal actually being delivered to that court. —— night circuit. a temporary short halt in entry for 90 days while these procedures are looked at. that is understandable. the president comes into office with an obligation to protect the national security of oui’ to protect the national security of our country. the president understands that these these are screening procedures are crucial and the president understands that congress identified these seven countries as well is in 2016... of
11:11 pm
course, in naming both seven countries, what congress did was to provide that people coming from those countries had to get visas, in other words, they couldn't come in without one. that permitted, of course, the usual investigations before you get somebody a these are. —— visa. the district court asked, how many federal offences had been committed by people who came in with visas from these countries. the answer was that there hasn't been any. yes, your honour, these proceedings have been moving quite fast and we are doing the best we can. you said they are moving fast
11:12 pm
that you moved to the district court to develop the record. why should we be hearing this if it sounds like you are going to be presenting more evidence later? i was about to mention a few examples. there has been a number of people from somalia connected to al sha baab been a number of people from somalia connected to al shabaab who have been convicted in the united states. is that in the record? can you point to us where it is? it is not in the record. there has also been other examples. again, you are correct, these are not in the record. the reason we sought immediate release and a stay is because of the district court's decision overriding the presence decision about the over
11:13 pm
—— level of risk. we have been talking about the level of risk that is acceptable. as soon as we are having that discussion, it should be acknowledged that the president is the official that is charged with making those judgements. i would also like to talk briefly... are you arguing that the president's decision is own review of book? -- unreviewable. there are obviously constitutional limitations but we are assessing the risk. what are the constitutional limitations?” are assessing the risk. what are the constitutional limitations? i would say as certain to constitutional limitations. the case most on point as far as constitutional, those
11:14 pm
cases where you have a us citizen raising a claim, the court looks only a per us citizen's constitutional claim and even then, looks at whether the decision is bona fide. in both of those cases, the specific statutes by congress that set for specific criteria that we re that set for specific criteria that were then applied factually, where an issue. the president is not applying any specifics from congress, is he? yes he is. he is applying a section. the supreme court recognised that congress and
11:15 pm
the president, exclusion is a fundamental act of sovereignty that are within the powers of congress and the president. 0ur point would be that there is limited review and the executive order easily passes that test. what kind of limited review to you acknowledge is appropriate? again, we are not acknowledging any review on this case because of the lot of standing and other problems. what we acknowledge is that there was a limited review conducted to see if it was bona fide and legitimate.
11:16 pm
isn't that something we need to look at? when reviewing executive orders of the president under section two 12 f, it should be determined if the decision itself and the executive order‘s findings have any issues with respect to the standard. again, iam farahead with respect to the standard. again, i am far ahead of our position. it would be if there was a party in the us with standing to raise their own constitutional claims. each step of that analysis, the state of washington doesn't have these constitutional interests. the state of washington cannot bring apache
11:17 pm
eight suit on bihar is of its citizens in this context. ——a patriate. estate might have an interest in clean air and when it sues to protect its air it is necessarily acting for its citizens. a state itself can't smell it, can't see. it has to be acting on the behalf of its citizens yet there seems to be authority for a state to bring that kind of a claim. well, the problem in the immigration context, and actually more generally, is a third—party can't
11:18 pm
challenge these denials or revocation is —— visa. challenge these denials or revocation is -- visa. sure they can. the whole point of that case was that the woman or her husband couldn't challenge, but she could. three justices were prepared to throw it out at the first step but the other six justices were not. they took up the claim. why isn't the state of washington in a combo bull position as the proprietor of state universities, having the same kind of interest that the scholar plaintiffs did in mandel? the problem is because the states are serving up a theory. they are also asserting their own interests as proprietors of the university and otherwise, tax revenues... yes. let me finish with the first theory, and then i will get to that. this theory
11:19 pm
assumes you are asserting the rights on behalf of the beneficiary, but there is well—established law that in the immigration context the sort of third—party interests, in the case which describes this, is not something which can be asserted. case which describes this, is not something which can be assertedlj suggest the case of denn asserts exactly that. denn may not have had any rights, but his wife was allowed to. and the state doesn't have the sort of constitutional rights that the wife in denn had. why is it not the wife in denn had. why is it not the same as the states in mandel? mandel was a foreigner. he might not have had the rights, but the states
11:20 pm
took him up. the university of washington, washington state invite people, why doesn't the state of washington have the same standing that the scholars did in mandel? so you have just been listening in to the appeal case being heard at the ninth us circuit court of appeals in san francisco. what you heard there was lawyers from the federal government and states suing trump, and thejudges government and states suing trump, and the judges on the panel, government and states suing trump, and thejudges on the panel, a seniorjudge was richard clifton. you heard the three of them talking intermittently. the representative for the government was august flincher, a special counsel to the assista nt flincher, a special counsel to the assistant us attorney general who you heard speaking on the phone. also listening in to that with us was our correspondent in washington, richard lester. iam no was our correspondent in washington, richard lester. i am no expert and it is hard to tell which way it is going. but what was quite
11:21 pm
interesting as they seemed to be bringing up particular cases and exa m ples of bringing up particular cases and examples of what this travel ban was doing to some people and individuals, to look at whether it was constitutional or not. what they we re was constitutional or not. what they were really doing is looking at previous legal cases to see whether or not they accurately reflected or endorsed the argument that the government lawyer was making. we did actually here to make the bits of information, i think, actually here to make the bits of information, ithink, pertinent actually here to make the bits of information, i think, pertinent to the government lawyer's case. we hope the government lawyer saying that what the judge in seattle did when he suspended president trump's executive order banning refugees and travellers from these seven countries for a limited period of time overrides the president's national securityjudgement. now, thatis national securityjudgement. now, that is really central to what the department ofjustice is arguing. they say that really only the president has the right to decide whether or not people should be admitted into the united states on questions of national security, and they are saying that this executive
11:22 pm
order did exactly that. it identified people that the us believes are a potential risk to national security, and so the president was well within his right to decide that he would then impose restrictions. the other thing that they are arguing is that the state of washington, which is who brought this case to the attention of this judge in seattle who made this order, actually can't bring constitutional claims of the type that it constitutional claims of the type thatitis constitutional claims of the type that it is making. so this is what they are hammering out at the moment, and it could be that at the end of all this it will be a fairly narrow, technical decision simply about whether or not the states of washington and minnesota have the right to make the kind of case that they did, and that thatjudge has they did, and that thatjudge has the right to suspend a presidential executive order. they probably won't get into the deeper constitutional question of whether or not that constitutional order was correct. richard, many thanks for that. we will keep you updated as well on any more development on bbc news. the government has announced that parliament will vote on its final
11:23 pm
deal on brexit before it's put to the european parliament. earlier this evening, a potential government defeat was avoided, after mps opposed a labour amendment which called for the commons and the lords to be given a say before negotiations are finished. the impact of tonight's developments mean parliament won't have the power to send theresa may back to the negotiating table in brussels. 0ur political correspondent carole walker reports. how much say will parliament have, as the government negotiates our departure from the eu? 0rder. more than seven hours of debate began with what some saw as a concession from the government. i can confirm that the government will bring forward a motion on the final agreement to be approved by both houses of parliament before it's concluded, and we expect and intend that this will happen before the european parliament debates and votes on the final agreement. i hope that is of assistance.
11:24 pm
but theresa may's negotiations with other eu leaders are likely to be difficult and complex, and some mps are worried about her threat to leave without a deal if she doesn't get her way. what the house wants is the opportunity to send the government back to our eu partners to negotiate a deal, if one hasn't been reached. i can't think of a greater signal of weakness than for this house to send the government back to the european union and to say we want to negotiate further. i think that that would be... i think that that would be seized upon as a sign of weakness. so the choice for mps on any deal will effectively be take it or leave it. if you just wait until everything's hands have been shaken with all the other europeans, and then you come here, then it means parliament is told, if you reject it, of course you have nothing. this is about this house having a genuine choice at some stage, and looking at what the government
11:25 pm
has negotiated, and then being able to say yes or no without that sword of damocles, that bad deal or no deal, which was the threat from the prime minister. and some were concerned about the whole tone of the debate. i feel sometimes i'm sitting with colleagues who are like jihadis in their support for a hard brexit. no brexit is hard enough, begone you evil europeans, we never want you to darken our doors again. the prime minister sought to persuade wavering mps as they went to vote. in the end, just seven tories rebelled on the key amendment. the ayes to the right, 293, the noes to the left, 326. a comfortable majority for the government, and ministers hope that will curb potential rebellions in the lords. the government hopes to get its bill through the commons tomorrow night, and the labour leader, jeremy corbyn, has ordered his mps to back the legislation.
11:26 pm
but that is already resulted in three resignations from his shadow cabinet, and there could be even more to come. more votes lie ahead, but tonight the government is confident it will get the backing of parliament to begin the formal brexit negotiations as planned by the end of march. the scottish parliament has voted by 90—31; against plans to leave the european union. in last year's referendum, a majority of scottish voters wanted to remain. the motion passed today had been put forward by the scottish government but the uk supreme court has already ruled that there are no legal requirement to consult the devolved administrations before the brexit process can start. 0ur scotland editor sarah smith has more from holyrood. even though the scottish men can't prevent or delay the triggering of article 50 the snp think this is is highly significant because it will be more difficult for the parliament to ignore their demands for a
11:27 pm
different brexit scottish parliament. they have voted 3:1 against uk government's plans. the scottish government want scotland to be able to stay in the eu single market, even after the rest of the uk leaves, but they are becoming deeply frustrated because they think the prime minister is not giving their proposals really serious consideration. they were repeating that today, and then labour and the tories accuse them of trying to stoke up grievances against westminster, just to further their agenda for scottish independence. but the scottish brexit minister, mike russell, said the clock is ticking and time is running out to try and agree a uk wide approach to the brexit negotiations, before the end of march when the government triggers article 50. a 6.3—magnitude earthquake has struck near the coast of pakistan. the us geological survey said the shallow quake hit about an hour ago, with an epicentre just 1a miles south—west of the city of pasni. there have been no reports of casualties or damage yet. gps have been warning for a some time about
11:28 pm
the pressures they are under. the average length of time a patient spends with their gp is around ten minutes in england, one of the shortest in the developed world. and doctors are warning that the pressures in the rest of the nhs are just making the situation worse. in the latest in our week checking the health of the nhs, our correspondent elaine dunkley has spent the day at a gp's surgery in liverpool. the great doctor ‘s surgery in everton, in liverpool, looks after more than 2000 people. this is an area with high deprivation, and patients with complex needs. appointments are 13 minutes long. patients with complex needs. appointments are13 minutes long.- minutes sometimes is enough, and sometimes it isn't, and we do tend to adjust. so i would normally finish my surgery and it anyway, and that's why we have recently increased in the hope of reducing
11:29 pm
that. they know to get the time they need. but complex problems can't be done in 13 minutes. 0ccasionally consultations will last up to a0 minutes. the average lengthh of a gp consultation in the uk is ten minutes, thought to be the shortest in the developed world. 92% of appointments here are less than 15 minutes. compared with 27% across europe. with people waiting longer to get appointments in the first place, and plans to move care outside of hospitals, there are concerns that this could lead to an even bigger workload for gps. we spend less than other european countries. we have one third the number of hospital beds per head compared to germany, for example. gp spend less time with their patients than any other european nation. we need to be
11:30 pm
addressing these issues as a priority. with short appointment slots, time wasting is also an issue. an ipsos poll for the bbc found that 70% of people in the uk believed it was acceptable to charge patients who missed appointments. the governments of england, scotland and wales say the length of consultations are down to gps, but have pledged extra funding to relieve time pressures. northern ireland have yet to respond, but gps say funding can't come soon enough. citizens in this context. ——a patriate. it'll be cold of us. a lot of cloud and dampness around, snow up around the high ground of scotland's and perhaps the high ground of north—east england. the best of the brightness across northern ireland and england. seven or nine degrees but a different story east. as we
11:31 pm
head into the night, the cold air continues to head its way west where it will turn chilly for all of us. dampness around and snow down to low levels of the end of the night. no great amounts but it does mean slippery surfaces by first thing on thursday morning. watch out for that with temperatures widely close to or below freezing. the message as we enter the week is that it will be cold and getting colder. and there will be some snow around. with time, there is an increasing chance that batsmen could cause some issues are pinned down the uk. we will keep you posted. hello. this is bbc news with chris rogers. the headlines at 11:30. federaljudges in california are beginning an appeal hearing to decide whether to overturn the suspension of president trump's travel ban. the government has defeated a group of mps in parliament who wanted a vote on the final brexit deal which could have sent the pm back to the negotiating table.
11:32 pm
the appeal has begun for a former royal marine who was jailed for life in 2013 for murdering an injured afghan insurgent — the court hears new psychiatric evidence the government announces plans to fix england's ‘broken' housing market — with a promise to build a million new homes by 2020. lawyers acting for a royal marine who was given a life sentence for shooting dead an injured afghan insurgent have argued that he was suffering from a mental illness at the time. sergeant alexander blackman described as a "superb" soldier has started a new appeal against his conviction in 2013. a video recording of the shooting was shown in court today as our defence correspondent jonathan beale reports. this video, filmed on a helmet camera by one of the marines on the patrol, shows the moment an apache helicopter opens fire on two taliban insurgents
11:33 pm
in helmand in september 2011. yeah! and then sergeant blackman and one of his men approached the insurgent who'd been wounded. in their words, a breeding ground for mental health problems. we can show you what happened before he was killed. sergeant blackman and one of the wounded a approach the injured man. we see now hear straight across the field and then shot. —— drags. in 2013 a military court found alexander blackman, also known as marine a, guilty of murder. but today his wife arrived at court at the start of a fresh appeal to have that sentence quashed and substituted with manslaughter instead. blackman himself listened to the proceedings by video link from the wiltshere prison where he is serving an eight—year sentence. his new defence team argued to a panel ofjudges that he was suffering a mental illness at the time
11:34 pm
in court, blackman was described as very reserved, a john wayne like a character who downplayed his mental health problems at the time of his original trial. but giving evidence three psychiatrists said he was in fact suffering from an adjustment disorder that impaired his ability to make rationaljudgements and that led to a loss of self—control when he shot the insurgent. but were these the words of a man who didn't really understand what he was doing? and then after he fired the shot. the prosecution argued that blackman knew what he was doing, even making sure he couldn't be seen by a helicopter above. marine a's supporters will be back tomorrow to hear more evidence
11:35 pm
but his defence has to prove that his symptoms were both substantial and significant. jonathan beale, bbc news, at the royal courts ofjustice. there has been international condemnation after israel legalised around 4,000 jewish settler homes built on private palestinian land in the occupied west bank. the knesset passed the law arguing it will protect israeli homes. the palestinian president, mahmoud abbas, says it's an attack against his people. stephane dujarric, spokesman for the the un secretary general antonio guterres said the move would harm the peace process. the secretary general insists on the need to avoid any action that would derail the two tax state solution. all core issues should be resolved
11:36 pm
between the two parties through direct negotiations on the basis of relative security council agreements. the united nations stands ready to support this process. the housing market in england is broken and needs fixing — that was the message from ministers today as they announced new plans to meet a target of building a million new homes by 2020. the strategy includes putting more pressure on councils to plan for local housing needs and a fund forfirst time buyers. labour says the measures are ‘feeble beyond belief‘. from manchester, our home editor mark easton reports. this part of england could be seen as a test—bed for central government's housing ambitions. local councils recently produced a joint plan for the new homes they say must be delivered if greater manchester is to become the engine for a northern powerhouse. creating the jobs that will drive the growth will need, councils estimate, another 227,000 homes in the next 20 years. some on greater manchester's green belt. the ink was barely dry on the draft plan before the protests began. demonstrations have been held
11:37 pm
across the region in recent weeks. at least nine of the local mps, both labour and tory, have come out against the proposals. today's white paper demands councils come up with realistic plans for delivering the houses their area needs. four this side and four that side. but these campaigners don't think greater manchester's plan is realistic in the slightest. the campaign to save bury‘s green belt is adamant the proposal to turn farmland into a new residential community is based on faulty logic. i know we need housing, but use the brownfield first. there's 11,000 empty homes in greater manchester — get them filled up and then start looking at greenfield. but those looking to restore greater manchester's industrial greatness say it can't grow unless it builds. we are not in the business of tearing up the green belt. we believe we have looked at the brownfield land supply all across the conurbation, and that we cannot accommodate our
11:38 pm
growth without taking a small part of green land into account as part of the future development of the city region. and people like gerard saint—etienne, who struggles to pay his rent, never mind get on greater manchester's housing ladder, says a realistic plan from his point of view means an affordable home in a prosperous city. i'd like to see them put people before profit, so i'd like it to be more attainable for the working man, because it seems to be like the working man has been pushed aside. the government says affordability is at the heart of its strategy, both with homes for rent and to buy. but will developers deliver? we know that greater manchester needs around about 4,800 new affordable homes every year. in the past the area has been delivering around 2,000 so we know there is a big demand for affordable housing out there. as an industry, we are keen to meet that demand
11:39 pm
through appropriate development. today's white paper promises radical action to mend england's broken housing market. but when it comes to a realistic plan to deliver enough affordable homes where people want to live, there are questions as to whether that can be done without some development on the green belt. now central government has decided to dodge that fight. but here in greater manchester its game on. they are going ballistic. they just won't accept it. in high lane near stockport, locals are preparing for battle, determined to halt plans for new houses in their village. people think you are nimbys, you know that? they can think whatever they want. we're not nimbys, we're not opposed to new housing, but we need it to be done in a balanced and structured way and using brownfield sites first. but you don't want it in your back yard. no, i'm not saying we don't want new houses in high lane, we do, but we don't want mass development. the fight over greater manchester's plan is destined to end up with the secretary of state in london. ministers today spoke of the need for radical action to deal with the housing need.
11:40 pm
but are the tories ready to defy the passionate concerns of their natural supporters, trying to protect england's countryside. mark easton, bbc news, greater manchester. in france the leader of the far—right front national marine le pen seems to gaining support in the latest opinion polls in the presidential race. she advocates strict controls on immigration and she wants to redefine france's relationship with the eu. france's finance minister said today that marine le pen would never be installed in the elysee palace by the people of france but her team says that's precisely the kind of elitist talk which boosts her support. 0ur correspondent lucy williamson has been to the old steel working town of hayange in north—eastern france to test her appeal among working—class voters. hayange is not a place given to metaphors, but memories. the relics of its shuttered steel furnaces stand sentry to a new political age. communists and socialists used to run this place together. but unemployment here has soared
11:41 pm
by 75% in the past decade, and in its wake has come the front nationale. translation: i'm for the front nationale. i'm not afraid to say it. i'm not happy with today's politics. there's too much immigration. we give to everyone. that's why you chose brexit and i absolutely approve of that. in 2010, the socialists won almost 60% of the vote here in the regional run—off. five years later, it was down to 19%. votes for the fn over the same period more than doubled, putting them in the lead. hayange now has an fm mayor, himself once a union man from the far left. the party presents itself as defending france's forgotten ones against crime, immigration and economic change. translation: the left betrayed it voters, the workers, the middle—class, the shop owners.
11:42 pm
there is mass immigration and we can't welcome the poor from across the world. we have to stop it and take care of our own. patrice was one of the fn's new converts, recruited as a deputy to the mayor. within a year he had left, disillusioned, he says, by its repressive, xenophobic views. he is voting far left in the presidential elections. translation: i was attracted because the other parties don't listen to the people. and i believed the fn was listing to me. i think marine le pen might have a chance because what is happening at a national level has already happened here. fn voters vote, the others don't, because they are so disgusted with politics. during his presidential campaign five years ago, francois hollande came to this area and promised that the blast furnaces wouldn't close. they did. with faith in the socialist party already dwindling here, many voters moved their support to the political margins, to the far left and to the far right. 0ne relic that has survived
11:43 pm
here is the boxing club, a place for young men to teach themselves how to win and lose. in the ring, it's easy to judge promises against performance. in politics, it's often performance that loses elections, and promises that win. lucy williamson, bbc news, hayange. more than half of ten to 12—year—olds who use social media now share selfies, according to a survey for the bbc‘s newsround. a fifth said that seeing images of celebrities online made them feel anxious about how they look, and many said they didn't like it when their parents posted images of them online. newsround's ricky boleto reports. with cameras in our phones and cupboard, there is nothing easier

than taking a selfie. you get the likes and nice comments. you have to get your good side. likes and nice comments. you have to get your good sidelj likes and nice comments. you have to get your good side. i need good lighting. i put my hand up to the sky and take a picture. the high angle. we all like to look good but how important is it to look good in a selfie that we share? more than four out of five say it is. what happens when it is notjust good fun? some people get more likes than you and you might get a bitjealous. there is a bit of pressure. if you post a bad picture of people, they wouldn't like you. they do stuff and they wets and lots of make—up and it makes us feel like we have to do that to look good. —— lots and lots. what do you do when you're bored?

when i take a picture, i take about five and then i picked one and posted. when i take one, take about three. i make it so it doesn't show your spots. in real life, you can see everything but on a picture, it lays out some of the things, spots or something like that. most of you ta ke or something like that. most of you take about four selfie is before you find one that you like. then you edit them with filters or cropping but is it possible to worry too much about how you look? young people fill a massive sense of pressure in making themselves look perfect but the problem is that the pictures they are looking out of other peoples' lives edited. you're comparing yourself with something that's not real. when it stops being fun, you need to take a step back. it at me to be self—conscious of yourself because you look good the way you are. always keep your account on private. don't be

bothered if someone doesn't like what you posted. just be yourself. just do it for a laugh, don't take it hello and welcome to sportsday. i'm hugh woozencroft. your main headlines this evening: alastair cook wants to continue breaking records for england, and has no issues about playing under his successor. the premier league champions, leicester city, are united behind their manager, claudio ranieri. he says they aren't in a crisis. and we find out why wales rugby union captain alun wynjones is the toast of town. good evening.
11:47 pm
plenty to come, including tennis and f1 news. but we start with alastair cook. he says it will be great for england's cricketers to have a new voice, with a new drive and new ideas. cook has been speaking for the first time since stepping down as england's test captain. 0ur sports correspondent joe wilson spent some time with him earlier today. every captain knows the ultimate direction. it is when and not if the end will come. alastair cook told me he was managing his emotions, but less the responsibilities he is now leaving behind. a cricket test captain doesn't just toss leaving behind. a cricket test captain doesn'tjust toss the coin. he must be in on the politician, at tea m he must be in on the politician, at team diplomat, a media politician, and in his case the team's most dependable batsman. i wonder if overall cook was just relieved to
11:48 pm
give it all up. i don't know if relief was the right word. to be honest it is really hard to sum it up honest it is really hard to sum it up but there is something in me that knows that this job is 100% or nothing, and looking in that mirror and knowing i couldn't do it for them was tough. at a have been very proud of what they have achieved, a lot of people to thank, obviously, most importantly my friends and family. my wife alice, without her support, i wouldn't have done it as long. you need a good network around you, and trust me, i have got one. listen, can you actually have a hunger now to pick up a bat and play? it is a long time, retired, in one sense. coming back injuly, i am hungry to score runs and hoping i can do that and support the next england captain, and really help drive the team forward. and what job do you thinkjoe root will do with the team ? do you thinkjoe root will do with the team? how do you think you will have to change if he does become the
11:49 pm
test ca pta i n ? most have to change if he does become the test captain? most people are achieving that. obviously are now no longer involved in those decisions. i will wait and see. and whoever gets thejob, it i will wait and see. and whoever gets the job, it is i will wait and see. and whoever gets thejob, it is going to be a very special time for him, or for them, whoever it is, and they are very lucky because we have some very talented cricket cricketers to drive forward , talented cricket cricketers to drive forward, and hopefully we can drive england forward and win a lot more games. if you think of yourjob as a captaina bit like games. if you think of yourjob as a captain a bit like a school teacher, and some children i require more attention than others and perhaps some you wish would require less attention. how did being with kevin petersson spoil your time as captain? identikit spoiled it, clearly it is part of my rain in one sense, apart you can't ignore —— kevin pietersen. i have been very lucky to play with a number of cricketers and had some fantastic times and this is not a time to be talking about that. i feel very
11:50 pm
lucky to have played with those guys and to share some very fond memories about those 59 games. premier league champions leicester city have given manager claudio ranieri their unwavering support, in a vote of confidence from the club. despite winning the title last may, leicester have struggled this season and sit 16th in the table, just one point clear of the bottom three. the club, though, have released a statement saying their recent success has been based on stability, togetherness and determination. i know the idea of the chairman, of the club, to everybody. and for me it's ok, but i think this is more for you than for me. maybe the chairman wanted to stop all of the speculation. you know, when the team — every team goes down. last season was a fantastic season, and we are very, very solid. this
11:51 pm
season we are speaking together, trying to help the team, support the team, support the team—mates, it is fantastic. in the dressing room is fantastic. in the dressing room is fantastic. there is no crisis. of course, when you don't win, you lack a little confidence, it is normal. but fortunately these players are warriors, because they are used to fight. because they already lived this situation, they live the good things but also the bad things. and for me it is important. i stay with the soldiers, with the warriors, who know the problem is not the enemy. norwich missed the chance to move into the play—off places in the championship, after being held to 2—2 draw at wigan. wigan came from behind to lead 2—1, but an equaliser from mitchell dijks after 73 minutes salvaged a point for norwich. they stay in seventh, while wigan are still second from bottom, five points from safety. huddersfield town manager

david wagner and leeds united counterpart garry monk have been charged with improper conduct by the football association. the charges come after the pair were involved in a confrontation near the end of huddersfield's 2—1 win in the west yorkshire derby on sunday. in addition, both clubs have been charged with failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion. british numberfour aljaz bedene has beat croatia's borna coric to reach the second round of the marseille 0pen. bedene, ranked 51 places below coric, at 109 in the world, won in three sets, and will face the german fourth seed alexander zverev in the last 16. after great britain's men made it into second round of the davis cup at the weekend, it is now the turn of the women, as they look to progress in the fed cup. the british team, led by new captain anne keothavong, are in tallinn. they will play turkey, latvia and portugal in round—robin matches. every year is an opportunity,
11:53 pm
but we've also got to give credit to the other teams. it's an incredibly tough zone, and the way our format is, it's very taxing. it's days and days and days on end. it is not quite the same as a weekend home or away tie. it gives a different dimension, a different challenge. but we've got a great group of girls, a great support system around us. and i'm really looking forward to being a part of that team environment again, and give it our best shot, because that is what we'll do. we will go out there and give it our best shot and hopefully create some opportunities to move forward. ronnie 0'sullivan is through to the second round of the world grand prix, after a 11—2 win over china's yan bingtao at preston's guild hall. bingtao levelled the score at two frames all, and 0'sullivan needed this bit of luck in frame five to help him on the way to victory. the five—time world champion then finished the match with a 128 break, and will face either neil robertson

or ricky walden next. in netball, wales were thrashed 92—27 by new zealand the first of two tests in cardiff. the silver ferns showed their dominance throughout the match. they led wales by 27 points at the halfway stage. wales struggled to claw back the gap. new zealand, who are ranked second in the world, added 25 goals in the final period. the two teams will play each other again tomorrow. silverstone sporting director stuart pringle says there is no question mark over formula 0ne's british grand prix, at least for the for the next three years. silverstone's status as hosts came under scrutiny last month, amid concerns about rising costs. well, there is certainly no question mark over the british grand prix this year, 2018 or 2019. so this is all about 2020 onwards. they have
11:55 pm
been some big changes at formula one and there have been some new owners coming in and we don't yet know those guys but we hope to meet them shortly and have discussions. and we would like to continue running formula one here at silverstone if we possibly can. what about the circuit and what lies ahead with the sale? of history that has been in the media as well. is there an update in terms of the process in terms of finding a new buyer for silsden? well, we are at the stage where we have had some good training results, and we are feeling that the pressure is slightly fast —— silverstone. not completely, there are some issues in the longer term that need addressing, but it has perhaps given us enough time to pause for thought and actually just review where we are, because things have changed. the situation is different with new owners of formula 0ne coming in. and actually we have had one or two makes things start to come our way. had one or two makes things start to come oui’ way. “ one or two things. it is the start of another week

of preparation for the home nations, as they look ahead to the second round of fixtures in the six nations this weekend. wales top the table on points difference at the moment, but ahead of a crucial match against england, captain alun wynjones has been preparing a little differently. he has been pulling pints of "ale wyn", which is being served in pubs around wales in his honour. his side have a tight turnaround to prepare for that england game on saturday. they have some injury concerns, and only six days to recover. we could make a big fuss about it and say it is going to be the difference, but that would essentially be an excuse. as domestic teams and regions we do that quite often, the short turnarounds with more games in that short turnaround so it is something you have to deal with. there is a suppose an added intensity, a physicality at international level, but like i say we experienced it in the season and we should be able to get on with it. that's all from sportsday. thanks forjoining us. remember, there is more sport on the bbc sport website and app. goodnight.
