stand firm, dismissing talk of a leadership challenge,

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

Labour spark a row after saying only a woman can replace Austin Mitchell.

:00:00.:00:19.

It is discriminating between men and women. That is not what women want.

:00:20.:00:30.

It is sexist. Caught at over 100 miles an hour. Calls for tougher

:00:31.:00:36.

penalties for speeding. Some people ignore penalties. We have to make

:00:37.:00:39.

sure they are punished to the fullest extent of the law. Also: The

:00:40.:00:45.

couple arrested after Nancy fracking protest. And, this six`year`old

:00:46.:00:50.

relives his big day at Wembley. More rain to come. I will be back

:00:51.:01:51.

with the forecast. The local party say its views were ignored. The

:01:52.:02:00.

majority said they would like to see a female selected from an open short

:02:01.:02:07.

list. The worry is that you are restricting across other types of

:02:08.:02:14.

people and characteristics. All`female selection led to the

:02:15.:02:23.

so`called Blair's babes. Labour is the only party to use this system.

:02:24.:02:27.

Figures show they do have the highest percentage of female MPs

:02:28.:02:28.

today. Opponents to all`female candidness

:02:29.:02:40.

argued that they don't address the real reasons why Deraa not more

:02:41.:02:45.

women that want to `` why there are not more women that want to be MPs.

:02:46.:02:50.

It is discriminating between men and women. That is not why women want to

:02:51.:02:58.

be in politics anyway. There has to be some reason behind it. I have no

:02:59.:03:05.

problems with it. I think it is a good idea. Why not? They are both

:03:06.:03:14.

equal. So discount men is a sexist thing. Labour is standing by its

:03:15.:03:20.

decision, saying it is increased `` it is committed to increasing the

:03:21.:03:21.

number of women in parliament. Labour's next Parliamentary

:03:22.:03:38.

candidate for Grimsby will be chosen in the next few months. We can

:03:39.:03:46.

already say that it will be a woman. The former high`profile Labour MP

:03:47.:03:53.

Aramis King was elected from an all woman short list in 1997 `` Baroness

:03:54.:04:00.

King. I asked if it was a good move for Grimsby. I think it is important

:04:01.:04:04.

overall that we have as many women as men going into Parliament. We are

:04:05.:04:13.

very short of that pain. We need to change it. I do think it is a good

:04:14.:04:23.

thing. Some are saying it is artificial and create an illusion

:04:24.:04:25.

that there was a change when their recent. The change depends on the M

:04:26.:04:35.

E. The candidate becoming an MP. People talking about it being

:04:36.:04:39.

illusory. I have sat for many years in Parliament, and the fact is, only

:04:40.:04:46.

one in five overs there are women. It depends if you want women in

:04:47.:04:53.

politics. A Conservative MP, a female, said, I disagree with

:04:54.:04:59.

tokenistic initiatives like Labour's all women short lists.

:05:00.:05:02.

Shouldn't it be the best person for the job? I absolutely agree, it

:05:03.:05:07.

should be the best person for the job, and women are quite capable of

:05:08.:05:14.

doing that job, but the system and the institutional bias against women

:05:15.:05:18.

locked them out. We have effectively had all male short lists for the

:05:19.:05:22.

last 500 years. That is not fair on women. I recognise some individual

:05:23.:05:29.

men might suffer, the same as many women suffered. I would like to see

:05:30.:05:36.

twin constituencies, with one man and one woman. In Grimsby, you could

:05:37.:05:44.

end up with a not so good female MP when perhaps there was affecting my

:05:45.:05:53.

candidate. `` a better male candidate. I don't agree. That

:05:54.:05:57.

implies there was not enough talent at that across both sexes across the

:05:58.:06:02.

tree. There are more than enough capable women there. He getting a

:06:03.:06:09.

lot of mediocre men, Deraa say, in parliament, nobody says a word about

:06:10.:06:18.

it. Very good to have you on the programme.

:06:19.:06:20.

Do you support all women short lists? Do you think it is

:06:21.:06:25.

discrimination against men? In a moment: The rivalry between

:06:26.:06:58.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire been settled on a German army camp.

:06:59.:07:02.

Tougher penalties are being demanded for drivers who are being caught

:07:03.:07:05.

doing more than three times the speed limit.

:07:06.:07:07.

Police have revealed that a driver was caught doing more than

:07:08.:07:10.

90 close to a school near Boston in Lincolnshire.

:07:11.:07:13.

Another was clocked at 113 miles per hour in a 40 zone on the A17.

:07:14.:07:17.

The justice system only allows magistrates and judges to impose a

:08:18.:08:19.

near Boston, two people were caught driving over 100,

:08:20.:08:25.

one clocked at 113, another at 108. While in North East Lincolnshire,

:08:26.:08:28.

one motorist was doing double the speed limit on the A18

:08:29.:08:32.

near Grimsby, again, over 100. While it may be a 40 zone here,

:10:21.:10:24.

with murder following a shooting in East Yorkshire. Jonathan Smith died

:10:25.:10:29.

of gunshot wounds in Milton last Tuesday. Peter Kite was remanded to

charged with assault. A couple in their 60s are to go on

trial accused of causing a public disturbance at an anti`fracking

:10:44.:10:47.

camp in East Yorkshire. John Mager,

:10:48.:10:49.

who used to be a director at East Riding Council, and his wife Val,

:10:50.:10:52.

an ex`teacher were arrested last Today they pleaded not guilty to

:10:53.:10:55.

the charges against them. From Greater Manchester to a village

:10:56.:11:18.

in West Sussex, campaigners have been protesting against the use of

:11:19.:11:24.

the shale gas extraction method known as fracking. Protesters set up

:11:25.:11:28.

camp at this site near Walkington in East Yorkshire. They said they

:11:29.:11:35.

feared plans for fracking. Two weeks ago, 30 police officers were brought

:11:36.:11:40.

in to a score to lorries onto the site. John and Valerie Mager were

:11:41.:11:45.

arrested, accused of obstructing vehicles. In court, they pleaded not

:11:46.:11:50.

guilty to the charge of preventing the carrying on of lawful business

:11:51.:11:55.

at the site. The judge set a trial date here for July the 31st. The

:11:56.:12:01.

couple have been granted unconditional bail. They left court

:12:02.:12:07.

without making any comment. The placards carried by their supporters

:12:08.:12:13.

gave a clear message. Thank you for watching. Still ahead:

forecaster is away on a course, and that happens to be in Spain. Paul

:13:00.:13:07.

says `` Frank says, Paul doesn't do a bad job but he should be given a

:13:08.:13:11.

permanent job and not just Keeley's standing.

:13:12.:13:16.

He has chosen a good day to be away. There is more rain to come then a

:13:17.:13:19.

gradual improvement through tomorrow. It is all due to this area

:13:20.:13:28.

of low pressure. It will be more settled for Friday and the weekend.

:13:29.:13:35.

You can see all the cloud pulling in from the North Sea. Outbreaks of

:13:36.:13:44.

rain. It started heavy this morning. It could be heavy at times.

:13:45.:14:02.

Tomorrow morning, heavy rain to start with. There will be further

:14:03.:14:14.

outbreaks of rain and drizzle. It will tend to fizzle out and we may

:14:15.:14:22.

get some sunny spells. Temperatures got up to 11 or 12 today. Across

:14:23.:14:30.

parts of Lincolnshire, it could get up to 15 or 16 degrees. After the

:14:31.:14:38.

rain fizzles out, more settled conditions for Friday and the

:14:39.:14:45.

weekend. It would be completely dry. There might be a few showers around.

:14:46.:14:53.

Hopefully, there will be some sunshine.

:14:54.:14:59.

I thought there was a lot of arm on display, but I had better be nice to

:15:00.:15:07.

you. Wattage hole and?

:15:08.:15:11.

I have to be nice to you if I want to get an invite to the barbecue.

:15:12.:15:23.

The historic rivalry between Yorkshire and Lincolnshire is being

:15:24.:15:26.

settled on an army camp in Germany. Reserve soldiers have been teamed up

:15:27.:15:31.

with soldiers from Lancashire, part of the reorganisation of the Army.

:15:32.:15:38.

On an army base in Germany in a tin shed, there is a great tent. It is

:15:39.:15:43.

hot and cramped, but it is he is here that battles are planned,

:15:44.:15:50.

side`by`side. It is how the modern army will work in the future. The

:15:51.:15:56.

regulars and reserve will become a singular, integrated force. The

:15:57.:16:02.

reserves come and provide a supporting element. There is no

:16:03.:16:15.

pretence one way or the other. This isn't the first time soldiers from

:16:16.:16:19.

Yorkshire and Lancashire have worked closely together. On the first day

:16:20.:16:24.

of the bottom of the Somme in France, men from both sides of the

:16:25.:16:29.

Pennines died fighting shoulder to shoulder. You could say the War of

:16:30.:16:32.

the Roses has been mentioned a few times. In the sergeant's mess, when

:16:33.:16:44.

training is done, the revelry takes place. We were assured that

:16:45.:16:56.

Yorkshire had a resounding victory. Despite the fact they are from the

:16:57.:17:00.

wrong side of the border, they are a good set of guys and we have got on

:17:01.:17:05.

well. The mystery of defence is increasing the number of reserves to

:17:06.:17:09.

compensate for redundancies in the regular army. That is controversial.

:17:10.:17:15.

Some people believe spare time soldiers can never be as good. It is

:17:16.:17:19.

not about being as good, it is about being good enough. We have to make

:17:20.:17:23.

sure they are competent and can fit in. This was the first joint

:17:24.:17:29.

training exercise. It will set the standard for the future of the

:17:30.:17:36.

British Army. Plenty of response following our

:17:37.:17:49.

interview with UKIP member. They are targeting at least two local seats

:17:50.:17:56.

in next year's general election. Thank you for the messages.

:17:57.:18:39.

The Conservative MP for Boston and Skegness, Mark Simmonds,

:18:40.:18:41.

is fighting back against complaints that he doesn't spend enough time

:18:42.:18:44.

UKIP won half of the votes in his area

:18:45.:18:48.

in last week's euro elections, and will target the seat to try to get

:18:49.:18:51.

Fellow Conservatives are warning Mr Simmonds he will have to work

:18:52.:18:56.

hard in the area if he wants to get re`elected.

:18:57.:18:59.

Her Successful maximums. e,

:19:00.:19:08.

seat in the 2010 General Election, with nearly 50% of the votes.

:19:09.:19:15.

But four years on, are people in Boston still impressed

:19:16.:19:18.

He has been good to us personally. He should be representing Boston

:19:19.:19:28.

instead of gallivanting around the world.

:19:29.:19:32.

As a foreign office minister, much of Mark Simmonds' work is overseas.

:19:33.:19:35.

But just yesterday, the leader of his local Conservative

:19:36.:19:37.

council told Look North he needs to reconnect with people back home.

:19:38.:19:42.

Mark has been continuing to do a lot of work. He hasn't been the best at

:19:43.:19:54.

communicating that work. My message is, get Boston back is your

:19:55.:20:02.

priority. More than 50% of people who voted here in Boston in the

:20:03.:20:08.

European election that UKIP. Now the party is planning to target this

:20:09.:20:10.

seat in next year's general election. So maximums could have to

:20:11.:20:20.

fight to remain MP here. I asked Mark Simmonds if he was

:20:21.:20:25.

worried about losing his seat at the general election.

:20:26.:20:29.

Of course I was disappointed with the results of the elections last

:20:30.:20:35.

week. The conservative vote held up reasonably well. It was the same

:20:36.:20:39.

across the rest of the country. Of course more work needs to be done.

:20:40.:20:42.

The government has had to take difficult decisions, to reset the

:20:43.:20:46.

economy after the shambles we inherited. Is being a Foreign Office

:20:47.:20:53.

minister advantage it `` an advantage to your career but a

:20:54.:20:56.

disadvantage to the Boston in Skegness area? I am a committed

:20:57.:21:04.

member of Parliament as was a committed government minister. I am

:21:05.:21:08.

proud to be the first MP to be elected to Boston who has ever been

:21:09.:21:21.

a government minister. I'm very much hope it will continue. Your own

:21:22.:21:24.

leader of the Council says, get Boston back as your priority. Is it

:21:25.:21:46.

fair? Of course there will be exchanges of thought. I have been a

:21:47.:21:53.

committed MP since I was first elected. I am delighted and proud to

:21:54.:22:01.

be a government minister, and I will continue to represent my

:22:02.:22:03.

constituency and country as long as people want me to do so. Looking at

:22:04.:22:07.

these messages, they do not end you are visible enough. Well, I live in

:22:08.:22:13.

the constituency. I am here every weekend. I have a large

:22:14.:22:23.

constituency. I do what I can in the context of my ministerial

:22:24.:22:29.

responsibilities. I hope everyone will continue to support me. Another

:22:30.:22:35.

message, I would like to see UKIP represent is because the main

:22:36.:22:38.

parties are ignoring people 's views.

:22:39.:22:41.

You are in trouble if many people think like that. I don't share

:22:42.:22:47.

that. The simple choice in the next election will be between putting

:22:48.:22:51.

David Cameron in Number ten or Ed Miliband. Will you be the Boston MP

:22:52.:23:12.

after 2015? I hope so. Thank you. There we are. If you are in Boston,

:23:13.:23:19.

you have heard the response there, you might want to comment on that.

:23:20.:23:28.

A painting by David Hockney has failed to sell at an auction in

London. The abstract picture called Tiger had a reserve of ?40,000. The

:23:34.:23:43.

bidding stopped at ?35,000. The wet weather means at Beverley

races will not take place this evening. It has been called off

life at any moment. We don't know how long he's got left. Everything

:24:43.:24:49.

that he does matters. This is just amazing. Freddie got to meet plenty

:24:50.:24:54.

of big names, although he didn't realise it at the time. I didn't

:24:55.:24:59.

know was him. I didn't know was Prince William. What did you think?

:25:00.:25:09.

I was like, tell me you didn't know who that was, and he said, I just

:25:10.:25:12.

thought it was a strange man walking by. The exposure has had an

:25:13.:25:18.

unexpected side`effect. He thinks he's famous. People stop is all the

:25:19.:25:24.

time, there is Freddie off the television, everywhere we go. I

:25:25.:25:28.

mean, not everywhere, but just like prior mark. Last time we spoke to

:25:29.:25:33.

Freddie, his biggest worry was what would be a packed lunch. Well? I
