10:45 pm
welcome to our look ahead to what this is bbc news. the papers will bring us tomorrow. the headlines. the us and israel announce what they with meet the assistant editor for say is a middle east peace deal, the new statesman, and the former conservative pensions minister. there are many of headlines already in. the metro is meeting with boris johnson's position to let chinese tech giant huawei help instruct britain's new 56 network despite fears that will put national security at risk and damage a post brexit trade deal with the us. according to the eye, the tech director at gchq says the market was broken, it was crazy. that huawei was one of only three suppliers. the times meanwhile says borisjohnson resisted opposition from his defence secretary in making that decision.
10:46 pm
and the financial times saying that the trump in ministration‘s condemned boris johnson's position but crucially stop short of threatening direct retaliation. the daily telegraph reports boris johnson has moved to heal the rift with the us over huawei by telling president trump he would never again allow britain to become reliant on chinese technology. the guardian is focusing on donald trump's unveiling his vision for middle east peace and a white house lunch they say gifted israel a witch west of its long—held demands while promising palestinians a potential state with with severe restrictions. the daily mail put the chairman of the police federation sang smart motorways are death traps and the £6 million robot should be put to a halt. and according to the express and a fierce prince answer isb express and a fierce prince answer is b whether by claims that he is refusing to co—operate with the fbi over the jeffrey epstein refusing to co—operate with the fbi over thejeffrey epstein case. —— prince andrew over the jeffrey
10:47 pm
absent case. let's turn to our reviewers. who wants to start, george, the eye, big red french pages saying that there was no viable alternative basically. to anyone watching this, i think the government, it will be a particular surprise because huawei is so interconnected with the broadband and mobile market. the government says it artie has a 34% share so borisjohnson's says it artie has a 34% share so boris johnson's grandiose promises oi'i boris johnson's grandiose promises on high—speed broadband could not have been met without the involvement of huawei. it is telling that dominic raab, the foreign secretary used market failure and i think that is quite a notable phrase for a conservative politician to use because it highlights the failure for britain and british companies to develop in this area of infrastructure. and in terms of the geopolitics of it, boris johnson infrastructure. and in terms of the geopolitics of it, borisjohnson is walking this tight rope where donald trump has made clear that the us
10:48 pm
would deal with huawei and he is unimpressed by allies, he would consider doing so. mike pompeo secretary of state arriving tomorrow but so far the signs are that downing street has managed to play this one 0k downing street has managed to play this one ok with trump, that boris johnson has reassured him and donald trump who is known to take to twitter with great fury when he is riled, has been notably placid today so riled, has been notably placid today so far. you take us to the front page of the telegraph on this because this too is leading on this story. noting that trump assignments. a slightly different take. on the one hand, the i is talking about the uk defined us but in the telegraph is saying that johnson is promising the us that this is only temporary and will end the reliance on huawei. the premise arei the reliance on huawei. the premise are i think is trying to walk this tightrope that george was talking about. but also i think this decision is perfectly understandable. he was damned if he
10:49 pm
did and damned if he didn't. we are desperate to get 5g working and we really need to make sure that we are at the forefront of technology. so, what he is trying to say is we did not have a choice, who was there? either we don't participate in this oi’ either we don't participate in this or we have got to do this. limiting to 35% non—core, so we are talking about the periphery, and they have also made it clear that they consider huawei to be a high risk of vendor. so they are trying to show the us that this is something they had to do right now but some of the republicans in the states are furious, some of them apparently are saying things like "this is like allowing the kgb to build the telephone network during the cold war." i think that is probably going a bit over the top. . this has gone through the national security council, we have taken advice from
10:50 pm
oui’ council, we have taken advice from our experts who seem to suggest that this is a risk that we can run up. and with mike pompeo coming to see the prime minister and the foreign secretary tomorrow, hopefully things will be smoothed over. i think boris johnson is very good at getting people on side, that is one of his big strengths. so hopefully this one will be ok. we shall see, it will be interesting to watch that term and the body language. talking about body language, george this photo in the telegraph, trom and netanyahu, a brose handgrip. i think this picture tells you all you need to know about the peace plan which is unfortunately it does not resemble ap spent but rather one for perpetual conflict because typically when you try to resolve a conflict, you want both sides there and the palestinian side boycotted this announcement because they view it as fatally unfit — — announcement because they view it as
10:51 pm
fatally unfit —— very unfair. recognising illegally israeli settlements as protector in israel and that faiz and face over the un resolutions of the year. the image i was reminded of was the contrast when you had bill clinton on the lawn of the white house with its fibre being and yasser arafat from the palestinian side bringing them together that historic handshake was the contrast when you had bill clinton on the lawn of the white house with its fibre being and yasser arafat from the palestinian side bringing them together that historic handshake facet —— from rubbing... you have him now... for donald trump, this is true as of most republican resins, they have been very supportive of israel by think he has taken it to an unprecedented degree. to know who said greatest friend of israel ever, didn't he? he did. and i can understand that there are difficulties on this one. but certainly what this plan suggests is that there will be a capital of a palestinian state in a two state solution where the palestinian state
10:52 pm
with jerusalem, solution where the palestinian state withjerusalem, east solution where the palestinian state with jerusalem, east jerusalem solution where the palestinian state with jerusalem, eastjerusalem or pa rt with jerusalem, eastjerusalem or part of it as its capital. and i think the big issue here is the economic package that goes along with it and this is what the americans were hoping but i don't think it will work. the palestinians would accept $50 million investment, 1 would accept $50 million investment, i millionjobs created over ten yea rs, i millionjobs created over ten years, and clearly, this cancun as it is. the palestinians are living in terrible situation. and somebody needs to try and work out a way to find a peaceful way forward. i'm not sure whether trump is the best place person to do that or whether this is... turning to the front page of the garden, this is their wheat story. ros there is saying quoting in that red speech bubble in the bob of their piece "jerusalem is not for sale" says the president mahmoud abbas. you have to recognise this is
10:53 pm
a starting point and will never be the end point. one that it though it doesn't look hopeful at the moment that it would at least lead to talks about a peace initiative. i can't believe that the palestinians want to live in a perpetual state of war and conflict. it certainly hasn't served them well. the israelis don't wa nt to served them well. the israelis don't want to either. the rest of the world would like to see a way that we can achieve some kind of peaceful future. but this is a really difficult one. and trump has tried to come forward with something for supperas to come forward with something for supper as i say, i'm not sure he is the best broker for peace... he obviously things otherwise and says he is not a man who came into power to do small things. when you do have what it as the nixon goes to china principle, sometimes it is presidents who come from shall we say unusual part of the political spectrum who can go into uncharted
10:54 pm
territory. and actually if anything, donald trump should be trying to engage with the palestinians the same where he has engaged with north korea. while that remains a tense situation but there were some who would think that north korea would be the country starts therewith but he has actually taken to negotiate and to appearan he has actually taken to negotiate and to appear an honest broker. but i think mahmoud abbas is somebody who could make peace. he is not an extremist. we are not talking about hamas here. but he has been stymied by his own people to some extent who are continually sending rockets and building new tunnels and trying to attack israel. where israel's big thing is security and the palestinian leadership is split. if we could have a unified palestinian partner for peace, then we could have a unified palestinian
10:55 pm
partnerfor peace, then maybe we could have a unified palestinian partner for peace, then maybe this would be a starting point. interesting because we were talking to one of our reporters in ramallah earlier and she was saying that the momentum was there for intense and frank talks between the different wings of the palestinian put or community. but let's move on because we have not dealt with coronavirus yet and the times —— the times has a story of thousands of britons warned against travelling to china. except for essential travel. this is a huge announcement. 600,000 people visiting china every year. anyone who goes not because of this advice would not have insurance cover for their trip, would not have insurance cover for theirtrip, andi would not have insurance cover for their trip, and i think the problem is we just their trip, and i think the problem is wejust don't their trip, and i think the problem is we just don't know what this virus can or will do. we can see that things are getting worse by the day. the number of reported people infected has doubled in one day. people think that is already under
10:56 pm
reported. china is really trying to act now. apparently they have put restrictions and quarantine on 50 million people in 17 cities. everything in china is very big. i know! but the scale of this, we do not quite know and it is frightening because you know if it can be passed on from human to human, then you have people coming here from china who have come here from china in the past couple of weeks and that is the incubation period. still lots of questions unanswered. a quick last word on this before we go george. the economic ramifications, the global economy is more connected than ever. china has propped up global growth in the post crisis years where we have seen slower growth in the us and europe and this obviously the travel bands in place threaten that. watts of worries about china prospect economic performance in light of all of this.
10:57 pm
and a huge suspension of activity in the chinese new year. accurately, george, thank you so much we were taught you shortly. baroness altman and george will be back at half past 11 with and george will be back at half past ii with an in—depth look at the papers but for all of us right now, it is goodbye with just a reminder that the front pages are on the website seven days a week bbc duck co. dot uk for very good evening to you. we have had a brief flirtation with winter. some of us have seen snow but things are changing. temperatures will be climbing over the next few days. cold enough tomorrow morning for ice on untreated services where we have moisture or some on untreated services where we have moisture 0!’ some snow on untreated services where we have moisture or some snow lying around. the saturday picture shows all these shower clouds have been racing in from the rest but down towards the south, clouds thinning out a bit.
10:58 pm
not many showers through the south, the showers concentrated to the north and west of the uk, mostly rain at low levels but over high grounds say about 250 metres you will see some further snow falling. temperatures falling down to roundabout freezing and a little bit below for some. cold enough for ice and frost raw. we start with this incident of ice payback or high—pressure. this frontal system will introduce rain into the north of the uk. start off across northern england and scotland with showers and then we see the rain pushing and getting through northern ireland into scotland, heavy bursts for western and southern scott and, more snow over the mountains here. some of the high ground in scotland can see a further ten cm of snow before tomorrow is done, brighterfor northern scotland but much wetter in central and southern parts of scotland. edinburgh and glasgow 5°99y scotland. edinburgh and glasgow soggy afternoons putting a milder one then we have had lately. some
10:59 pm
range in norther ireland and england, cloud thickening up for wells in the south west with the odd spot of drizzle. britons, east anglia should hold onto sunshine, temperatures ten or ii anglia should hold onto sunshine, temperatures ten or 11 degrees, milder than it has been. talking of mild, this is what is heading our way the end of the week. mild air from the south west with moist air as well. that means we will see a lot of cloud, that cloud producing smart stash of lane —— spots of rain... to the south coast and also wet and blustery weather throughout scott without the day. thursday temperatures, we have not seen these for a few days, ten in glasgow, 13 degrees your high in london and a quicker look ahead to friday, for the operation of rain at times. chance things will cool off in the north—west of the uk, temperatures dropping as the day wears on but down towards the south even through into the afternoon, we will hold the steppers up to 13 or 111 degrees. after i refer tissue with winter,
11:00 pm
there is something milder to come 00:15:03,081 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 through the rest of the week.
