The latest King Kong franchise in the film review.

:00:00.:00:13.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Robert Fox, Defence Editor

:00:17.:00:22.

and Esther McVey, former Conservative Employment minister.

:00:23.:00:31.

The FT says Theresa May is on the brink of formally

:00:32.:00:35.

launching Britain's exit from the European Union after rebel

:00:36.:00:37.

Tory MPs admitted they were unlikely to have the power to block the move.

:00:38.:00:41.

The i says Tory veteran Lord Hestletine who was sacked over

:00:42.:00:44.

Brexit has accused Mrs May of treating colleagues

:00:45.:00:46.

For the Metro, it's "March Madness", as strikes over driver-only trains

:00:47.:00:54.

spread to three parts of the country.

:00:55.:00:56.

The Telegraph has a picture of a serious-faced Nicola Sturgeon

:00:57.:00:58.

behind Theresa May - it says the Scottish leader

:00:59.:01:01.

is threatening to derail Article 50 with plans

:01:02.:01:03.

for a second independence referendum.

:01:04.:01:04.

Brexit preoccupies the Express again - it says MPs have been urged not

:01:05.:01:08.

to wreck the bill's progress through Parliament.

:01:09.:01:10.

And the Times says the heads of 35 Oxford colleges have signed

:01:11.:01:13.

a letter, pleading with MPs to allow EU citizens already resident

:01:14.:01:16.

in Britain the right to stay after Brexit.

:01:17.:01:21.

The Guardian focuses on the possible trade implications for Britain

:01:22.:01:24.

But its front page is dominated by Britain's youngest MP

:01:25.:01:29.

Mhairi Black who says she "hates" parliament and might stand down

:01:30.:01:33.

And the Mirror carries a picture of Madeleine McCann -

:01:34.:01:36.

it says police want to talk to a former worker at the resort

:01:37.:01:40.

The eye says the Tories are in turmoil ahead of Article 50 this

:01:41.:02:00.

week. You wonder how much turmoil they are in because I do not know

:02:01.:02:04.

how many will vote against the two line bill and keep the amendments

:02:05.:02:09.

the Lords put through. It will go through. I do not think they will

:02:10.:02:15.

get enough support for the amendment. I am afraid that thinks

:02:16.:02:22.

the paper is in a little bit of a term because it is not clear whether

:02:23.:02:29.

it is a row over Brexit all over the mandate is to know when he was

:02:30.:02:40.

defence Minister of forensic fillip. And now raking a promise in the

:02:41.:02:46.

manifesto - that has never happened before I am sure! The Daily

:02:47.:02:56.

Telegraph says... We are getting rid of that one as a non- story. We can

:02:57.:03:02.

look at other aspects of the Brexit issue. A little bit of a spat but

:03:03.:03:10.

mainly from Michael has all time -- Michael Hazel time. He voted against

:03:11.:03:19.

the government and he would be sacked but a short memory because he

:03:20.:03:23.

was a senior member in John Major's team making short Conservative lost

:03:24.:03:30.

the whip. He knows that should you vote against your party there are

:03:31.:03:37.

consequences. Isn't David Davis being somewhat disingenuous of those

:03:38.:03:42.

saying MPs would be trying to reverse Brexit if they were to

:03:43.:03:47.

support the amendments. It is not to stop Brexit at all but bring in

:03:48.:03:53.

safeguards for EU residents still here and also the idea of giving the

:03:54.:04:00.

MPs vote on the deal when we finally get one. What is newish about this

:04:01.:04:06.

is the shift in journalism. All of what you have both said is the post

:04:07.:04:14.

truth phenomena in. Brilliantly described... Word of the year

:04:15.:04:19.

according to the Oxford dictionary... Forget the fact of

:04:20.:04:24.

what you have discovered by fact what you believe in motion --

:04:25.:04:33.

emotionally to be true. I do find some of David Davis's pronouncements

:04:34.:04:39.

extraordinary. Forget about the Lords. In saying you should not

:04:40.:04:44.

attend to those two amendments at all which is what he seems to be

:04:45.:04:50.

saying today, what is the point of the constitutional process... Should

:04:51.:04:57.

it have been in the manifesto, you should not vote against it. When it

:04:58.:05:06.

comes to ping pong what the Lords does is scrutinised but they do not

:05:07.:05:11.

oppose what the elected chamber has done. They said this is what we want

:05:12.:05:18.

you to look at. The comments will look at it again and then at

:05:19.:05:23.

everybody agrees citizens of the EU should stay here and that will no

:05:24.:05:31.

doubt be the case. The Tories may have said we need to have as much

:05:32.:05:35.

concerned for our citizens in the EU as we have for EU citizens here but

:05:36.:05:42.

you cannot keep having vote after vote after vote because it is about

:05:43.:05:51.

not wanting Brexit not to happen. You cannot... At the people is not

:05:52.:06:00.

going to be upended by having these two amendments. It is safeguards,

:06:01.:06:06.

they are not going to stop Brexit. We have the fear over the finances

:06:07.:06:12.

of what would be the punishment budget and now this fear about what

:06:13.:06:17.

is going to happen with EU citizens because we have said we want those

:06:18.:06:23.

people protected but we want to ensure British citizens are

:06:24.:06:29.

protected in the EU. I have mentioned the Telegraph that have

:06:30.:06:37.

barely looked at it. Sturgeon's last-ditch bid to ruin Brexit.

:06:38.:06:42.

Again, the implication that it wants to stop Brexit. Alternative fax...

:06:43.:06:51.

Not quite but we're getting there. We are getting into triumph true

:06:52.:07:03.

thinness. -- Donald Trump truth. It is a rather tangled this story

:07:04.:07:09.

because it suggests that Nicola Sturgeon looking daggers at that

:07:10.:07:16.

very fine hat Theresa May is wearing and a fine photograph on the find

:07:17.:07:22.

page, wants to undo Brexit. If you read the fine deal what she wants is

:07:23.:07:28.

a fine deal which allows the Scots in on the negotiations. Mrs May had

:07:29.:07:35.

pushed her back on that. The Telegraph makes a leap forward and

:07:36.:07:40.

says she is threatening and independence referendum by the end

:07:41.:07:44.

of next year so that by the time we get to the conclusion of the Brexit

:07:45.:07:50.

negotiations, Scotland could be out on the United Kingdom. Could be. If

:07:51.:07:59.

and buts. You can see from the look and body language that Nicola

:08:00.:08:05.

Sturgeon is in a much tighter position, a different corner than

:08:06.:08:09.

Theresa May because the polls are not favouring her for independence.

:08:10.:08:16.

Scotland is so dependent on the English economy, are they really

:08:17.:08:23.

going to bail out? Is it a desperate last-minute attempt and she has been

:08:24.:08:26.

cornered... All these little details... You are going to look

:08:27.:08:33.

after Scotland's best interest if you are its leader. We have to move

:08:34.:08:44.

on. We do! The Times, EU workers must stay. Oxford heads tell Theresa

:08:45.:08:51.

May. A great deal of universities came out in support of remaining in

:08:52.:08:56.

the EU because of the benefits to research and this is our longer

:08:57.:09:03.

those lines? Yes and I know that Oxford calculated within three

:09:04.:09:08.

months after the except vote being taken -- Brexit vote being taken

:09:09.:09:15.

they had lost grounds from the EU and a lot of staff, it teaches in

:09:16.:09:22.

Oxford, in the sciences as specially, art European citizens.

:09:23.:09:34.

They have 35 voting but three would not join this motion. I wonder who

:09:35.:09:41.

they are. Let's look at The Guardian. Britain will be bottom of

:09:42.:09:49.

the heap without a deal on Brexit. How can it be that David Davis and

:09:50.:09:54.

Boris Johnson awaiting this away. That it is not matter about a deal.

:09:55.:10:02.

How can you argue that is a good idea. Who was behind this piece of

:10:03.:10:11.

research? They were all Remainers say you say, it has already been

:10:12.:10:16.

written from a specific point of view so we look at it through that

:10:17.:10:22.

lends and other people would say, you could not get a much worse deal

:10:23.:10:33.

than 68th clean pound trade deficit. -- 68 billion pound trade deficit

:10:34.:10:42.

deal. UKIP get car is against that market. -- tariff. It would enable

:10:43.:10:53.

you to an short to get a good deal because every other country has to

:10:54.:10:59.

make sure that when we leap we are the biggest export market. Would

:11:00.:11:05.

people expect to cope with WTO and tariff? And a drop in the standard

:11:06.:11:13.

of living. Even if you had to deal with the WTO rules, the amount of

:11:14.:11:22.

money that has to be paid, you could still have a surplus. We have to

:11:23.:11:27.

give Theresa May the best chance to get the best deal and be in the best

:11:28.:11:32.

negotiating position. But you could not get much worse. I do not want to

:11:33.:11:42.

sound like Ramona... Hold on, the people who were not happy with the

:11:43.:11:48.

1975 referendum complained for years and years and... I am going to

:11:49.:11:55.

complain about your bias here and it is about EU citizen. And your

:11:56.:12:07.

buyers! Not at all. -- bias. What kind of a voice is it going to have

:12:08.:12:12.

because if you say you are guaranteed this and --

:12:13.:12:22.

disenfranchise Parliament, you're looking at a constitutional... That

:12:23.:12:30.

is what MPs voted to do, to give the state to the people in a significant

:12:31.:12:39.

way. According to Donald Trump, I am one of the bad people. I need to

:12:40.:12:47.

move on. As long as we get back to the point that it was the people who

:12:48.:12:54.

voted for Brexit. Within a margin of error. A waste of time, the youngest

:12:55.:13:06.

MP, Mhairi Black, saying she may not stand for a second term because so

:13:07.:13:11.

little gets done and yet we tried to encourage young people to engage and

:13:12.:13:18.

go into politics. She has a point. The deliberations of Parliament have

:13:19.:13:24.

very little effect. In the words of the late Lord Hailsham, we have an

:13:25.:13:31.

elected dictatorship. If you are in with a solid majority, you can do

:13:32.:13:38.

what all those what they like. We went into Iraq. There is something

:13:39.:13:44.

flawed. It is not quite as broken as Mhairi Black says but it is

:13:45.:13:51.

dysfunctional, you see it on all sides. That is not government vote,

:13:52.:13:59.

where are we with democracy, that is what the slope process is. So many

:14:00.:14:05.

people want to say, Opposition, stakeholder groups, individuals,

:14:06.:14:11.

that is what slows down the democratic process not necessarily

:14:12.:14:15.

what happens in government but making sure everybody has a say.

:14:16.:14:21.

That is probably what she is frustrated about the cover-up over

:14:22.:14:25.

dodgy pay-outs to peers. Apparently an informal probe, an unofficial

:14:26.:14:34.

probe into tears whether they are turning up and doing their jobs

:14:35.:14:38.

properly and claiming their money, all keeping a taxi parked outside

:14:39.:14:44.

the front door as suggested in meet the Lords programme on the BBC.

:14:45.:14:53.

Again, this is not quite what it says. It is largely based on the

:14:54.:14:59.

programme is going out. On the House of Lords. It was an informal

:15:00.:15:06.

enquiries but what the Baroness was saying is it is not an expensive

:15:07.:15:11.

scandal she is driving at, she is driving at the regular ?300 tax-free

:15:12.:15:21.

claim just for turning up. We are getting so little value for money

:15:22.:15:26.

for many of them. She is questioning the productivity. You have created

:15:27.:15:35.

far too many. A chamber nearly a thousand which is... Everybody is

:15:36.:15:45.

coming to the conclusion, is it to many? Could we do with less?

:15:46.:15:53.

I am being urged to mention the fact that in the Daily Mail, the and

:15:54.:16:05.

eight-year-old author is on Tinder, and AppWare you can meet people and

:16:06.:16:12.

get to them. Can we see the picture? Of the young man she is with? If you

:16:13.:16:17.

are 80 and can get him on Tinder I think we would all be on here. I

:16:18.:16:22.

have to speak up for my friend of many years ago, Ms Cooper, I think

:16:23.:16:27.

this is merely essential research for a novel which she is undoubtedly

:16:28.:16:32.

preparing. How deep is the research going?! That's it for the papers.

:16:33.:16:40.

Don't forget, it is on iPlayer. Coming up next, it is The Film

:16:41.:16:42.

Review.
