Good evening. There will be further talks tomorrow over the wearing of

:00:00.:00:22.

poppies at Fifa on Armistice Day. A request has been turned down to

:00:23.:00:27.

allow players to wear armbands featuring poppies during the match,

:00:28.:00:38.

on the 11th of November. A simple ceremony, a reminder of sacrifice.

:00:39.:00:42.

People come to remember conflicts in the distant past and recent painful

:00:43.:00:47.

events as well. The young man who gave their lives in battles like the

:00:48.:00:52.

Somme 100 years ago were just like these young men, pals who banded

:00:53.:00:58.

together. On the 11th of November, Armistice Day, Scotland will play

:00:59.:01:02.

England and the teams want to wear a poppy. We have had a president in

:01:03.:01:09.

2011 and I think it is clear and the point we are making is this that is

:01:10.:01:13.

not a political statement, this is a personal choice. This is a mark of

:01:14.:01:16.

respect for those who have lost their lives in the war. It is

:01:17.:01:22.

thought Fifa come under a new regime, is more likely to be

:01:23.:01:26.

sensitive to this issue. Involving the oldest international match in

:01:27.:01:29.

the world. There is certainly political will for a change of

:01:30.:01:34.

heart. I think it's important to commemorate and remember the people

:01:35.:01:37.

who gave the ultimate sacrifice during the world wars, and there's

:01:38.:01:42.

no better time to do that on Armistice Day, on the 11th of

:01:43.:01:45.

November, when I hope Fifa will allow both teams to wear poppies on

:01:46.:01:52.

the strips. I think Fifa have badly misjudged this. The fact the game

:01:53.:01:58.

takes place on the 11th of the 11th, this is the year to commemorate the

:01:59.:02:02.

Great War of the First World War, shows how badly they have misjudged

:02:03.:02:07.

it. The poppy is not a political symbol. This year's Poppy Appeal was

:02:08.:02:12.

launched by the gold-medal winning Olympic cyclist Callum Skinner.

:02:13.:02:16.

People of all ages in Scotland will give this year to help veterans and

:02:17.:02:20.

many will wear a poppy with pride. There is certainly a great deal of

:02:21.:02:23.

support to allow the descendants of those who fought an opportunity to

:02:24.:02:25.

remember as they meet in a different those who fought an opportunity to

field of conflict. Police Scotland say they're dealing with Scotland at

:02:43.:02:45.

there. It's understood the area has been sealed off. It is used by the

:02:46.:02:49.

RAF on the Army. An Army spokesman said they are aware of an incident

:02:50.:02:56.

but comment further at this stage. The controversial law aimed at

:02:57.:02:59.

tackling sectarianism in football will be debated at Holyrood

:03:00.:03:03.

tomorrow. It's four years since a majority SNP administration pushed

:03:04.:03:06.

through the offensive behaviour at football act. Opposition MSPs want

:03:07.:03:13.

it revealed. -- repeals. Celtic Park in

:03:14.:03:17.

September. As the old firm teams took to the pitch, in the home

:03:18.:03:23.

stands, this. Effigies draped in an orange sash and Rangers scarf.

:03:24.:03:29.

Police have made arrests over that incident and the trashing of toilets

:03:30.:03:33.

by some Rangers fans. Four years ago the government's solution was the

:03:34.:03:37.

offensive behaviour at football act but opposition parties say it was a

:03:38.:03:40.

blunt instrument which damaged free speech. On Wednesday they'll debate

:03:41.:03:46.

whether it should be repealed. This Labour MSP says his recent

:03:47.:03:49.

consultation shows large support for that. My view is that football fans

:03:50.:03:54.

going to the matches should be singing football songs, but one of

:03:55.:03:58.

the issues we have seen with this legislation is the police have

:03:59.:04:04.

confused about what songs are illegal and potentially cause public

:04:05.:04:07.

disorder, the judges are confused, and the whole thing has ended up a

:04:08.:04:14.

real mess. One possible way forward is to make clubs legally responsible

:04:15.:04:18.

for fans' behaviour, strict liability. The ultimate --

:04:19.:04:23.

ultimately it's the clubs who attracts people in by dint of being

:04:24.:04:29.

entertainment if you like, but the fans have a loyalty to the clubs and

:04:30.:04:32.

if they realise the clubs will be punished severely, could be punished

:04:33.:04:36.

severely, it might well be that would be the thing that would

:04:37.:04:40.

trigger to change their behaviour is. The legislation has aroused

:04:41.:04:44.

strong feelings amongst fans. One blogger says it's about free speech.

:04:45.:04:51.

It do I have the right to be offended? If you take it to its

:04:52.:04:54.

logical conclusion, I might be offended by your tie, it doesn't

:04:55.:04:58.

mean I have the right to get you arrested because I find your choice

:04:59.:05:01.

of Kolarov tight clashes with your suit offensive. It's a nonsense when

:05:02.:05:07.

you take it to this degree. Many fans agree there's a problem with

:05:08.:05:12.

sectarianism in some parts of football, but they're also concerned

:05:13.:05:14.

about limits on the free speech, something they say this legislation

:05:15.:05:18.

has made worse. That is something that opposition politicians will be

:05:19.:05:22.

talking about tomorrow, in the Holyrood debate.

:05:23.:05:30.

Former Scottish miners say the UK Government's decision to rule out a

:05:31.:05:33.

public enquiry into what became known as the Battle of Orgreave in

:05:34.:05:37.

Yorkshire during the miners' strike in 1984 makes them more determined.

:05:38.:05:42.

Campaigners here want an investigation into confrontations

:05:43.:05:45.

between striking miners and police north of the border.

:05:46.:05:51.

In Newtongrange the old colliery was declared the National mining Museum

:05:52.:05:57.

in 1984. The same year as the most bitter of industrial disputes was

:05:58.:06:03.

unravelling. About 150 people were faced by police as the lorries left

:06:04.:06:06.

the mind. Striking miners classed with the police, one of the worst

:06:07.:06:12.

instances was at Bilston Glen just outside Edinburgh. One of those

:06:13.:06:17.

arrested was Alex Bennett. I appeared in court and was fined

:06:18.:06:25.

?100, on the 20th of December 19 84. I got my P 45 in January and I never

:06:26.:06:31.

worked for three years after the strike. In Westminster today, a

:06:32.:06:38.

junior minister faced an urgent question in the Commons, 24 hours

:06:39.:06:43.

after his boss Amber Rudd ruled out an enquiry into the clashes at

:06:44.:06:47.

Orgreave. Isn't it simply staggering that the Home Secretary has brushed

:06:48.:06:52.

away an enquiry as not necessary? And isn't it even more revealing

:06:53.:06:57.

that she wasn't prepared to come to this house today to justify her

:06:58.:07:01.

that she wasn't prepared to come to decision? Some believe there is

:07:02.:07:04.

evidence that the Tory government instructed police to take a harsh

:07:05.:07:07.

approach in Scotland in the aftermath of the violence in

:07:08.:07:11.

Yorkshire. Is a lot of questions about Civil Liberties and about the

:07:12.:07:16.

politics of the policing of the strike. It goes far beyond

:07:17.:07:22.

individual cases of injustice and requires a collective response.

:07:23.:07:27.

Hundreds of miners remain convicted of offences during the strike, more

:07:28.:07:32.

here in Scotland than any other part of the UK. That's why campaigners

:07:33.:07:36.

say it's imperative that there is an investigation here into the conduct

:07:37.:07:42.

of police. I don't know, I can understand the Tories taking a

:07:43.:07:46.

decision they did, not to investigate the Tory government of

:07:47.:07:49.

the Thatcher government, but for the Scottish Parliament to take the same

:07:50.:07:54.

view as the Tories, I find that strange and I don't know what the

:07:55.:07:59.

reason is. The Scottish Government says it has no plans to conduct an

:08:00.:08:05.

enquiry into the police here. They say the Scottish criminal cases of

:08:06.:08:07.

the board can look into cases of those who fear they were wrongly

:08:08.:08:14.

convicted. A group of tenant farmers is taking

:08:15.:08:18.

the Scottish Government to court to try to win compensation for having

:08:19.:08:21.

to leave the farms they have been renting. They say they are the

:08:22.:08:24.

victims of flawed legislation. These 5000 acres have been farmed

:08:25.:08:31.

by the Patterson family since 1996 after they signed a limited

:08:32.:08:34.

partnership lease with the local should have given them security

:08:35.:08:36.

for decades, but once that law was ruled to be incompetent,

:08:37.:08:46.

their hope of staying beyond their initial

:08:47.:08:48.

lease was not shared, They've now been given notice

:08:49.:08:52.

to leave at the end of the month. I hope that those with power over

:08:53.:08:59.

this wrong legislation, the flaw in the law

:09:00.:09:10.

before this week's over. I hope they do provide

:09:11.:09:12.

a means for the farmers who are losing their farms to be

:09:13.:09:15.

able to continue to farm. It's not so much the landlord

:09:16.:09:18.

but the Scottish Government Arriving at court in Edinburgh today

:09:19.:09:21.

Ian and John Paterson argue they are the victims of clumsy

:09:22.:09:32.

legislation and they must be compensated for the money they've

:09:33.:09:34.

invested in the farm over the years. The Patersons are one of seven

:09:35.:09:40.

tenant farmers from around Scotland taking the government to court,

:09:41.:09:43.

and they are supported We simply ask government now,

:09:44.:09:45.

don't drag this through the courts, step in, pay the compensation

:09:46.:09:52.

where it's due and allow the parties The Paterson family have accepted

:09:53.:09:55.

they will have to leave this farm that they've built up over the years

:09:56.:09:59.

at the end of the month, but they're hoping that

:10:00.:10:02.

by highlighting the plight other tenant farmers will be spared

:10:03.:10:05.

the same heartbreak. The Scottish Government

:10:06.:10:09.

won't comment on the court action for compensation,

:10:10.:10:12.

but say new legislation was brought in two years ago to replace

:10:13.:10:15.

the earlier flawed law. Years of uncertainty here have

:10:16.:10:20.

taken their toll, though. Jim has coped with it,

:10:21.:10:26.

being the head of the family, most of the worry has been an Jim's

:10:27.:10:35.

shoulders, that yes, it has had a terrible

:10:36.:10:39.

and detrimental affect my husband's Celtic kept the Champions League

:10:40.:11:00.

hopes alive by battling back to draw 1-1 with Borussia Monchengladbach.

:11:01.:11:03.

Celtic hit the post. The Germans went ahead in the 33rd minute.

:11:04.:11:14.

Dembele converted a penalty. After another beautiful day for most of

is, it's the weather outlook for tonight and tomorrow.

:11:18.:11:22.

A fantastic start to November for many but clear skies minute will be

:11:23.:11:27.

quite chilly tonight. Current temperatures there, expected to fall

:11:28.:11:31.

further and in the countryside down to zero or below zero. Not clear

:11:32.:11:35.

skies for everyone. Across the North and north-east a number of showers,

the cloud and breeze, that's how we start things tomorrow morning but

:11:40.:11:42.

elsewhere it is a dry, fine start to the day. The fog patch here and

:11:43.:11:46.

there and they will be pockets of frost around as well. Once the sun

:11:47.:11:59.

comes up it quickly gets to work. However, it's going to be chilly.

:12:00.:12:01.

Temperatures at 8am, 4-5dC. Further north, perhaps mild around the coast

:12:02.:12:04.

and a bit of cloud to start the day around Marie and Caithness and the

:12:05.:12:06.

Northern Isles, where the winds remain fresh through the Northwest

:12:07.:12:10.

and the showers tend to ease away. Elsewhere very similar conditions to

:12:11.:12:13.

what many will have seen today. 20 of Chris Porter null sunshine. A

:12:14.:12:17.

better day across the Highlands and Islands, fewer showers -- there will

:12:18.:12:26.

be crisp sunshine. Temperatures 9-11 Celsius. The risk of showers down

:12:27.:12:31.

the North Sea coast and quite a breeze a raw feel at times but for

:12:32.:12:34.

many, plenty of sunshine and a pleasant day. The cloud increasing

in the north-west turning the sunshine hazy and Reina Riley as we

had overnight and its withers as we head towards the state -- rain

:12:43.:12:48.

arriving as we had overnight. There will be cloud and rain across

:12:49.:12:51.

Scotland. South of the border, try and find but a different day for us.

:12:52.:12:57.

On Thursday, temperatures similar but a cool feel with the cloud and

rain. Low pressure in charge on Friday, a number of showers, one or

:13:02.:13:06.

be heavy across the far north of Scotland. Temperatures similar, some

:13:07.:13:10.

sunshine further south. Into the weekend the low pressure system

:13:11.:13:13.

pulls away and opened the floodgates to really chilly air from the north.

:13:14.:13:17.

With it, a few showers, some of the wintry. That's the forecast for now.

:13:18.:13:22.

That's all from Reporting Scotland for now. Regular updates during

breakfast from 6:25am. From all of us in Glasgow and around the

country, good night.
