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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are Martin Bentham, Home Affairs Editor

:00:19.:00:23.

at The Evening Standard, the broadcaster Lynn Faulds-Wood.

:00:24.:00:24.

Tomorrow's front pages now, starting with...

:00:25.:00:34.

The Daily Telegraph said a Scottish referendum may be put off six years.

:00:35.:00:42.

The Guardian leads a Nicola Sturgeon's assessment that the Prime

:00:43.:00:45.

Minister's stance may have sealed the fate of the union. Metro has the

:00:46.:00:47.

same story. "Brexit comes before Scotland"

:00:48.:00:53.

is how the i sums up Theresa May's response to the calls

:00:54.:00:56.

from Scottish nationalists. Claims that taking statins increases

:00:57.:01:15.

the risk of diabetes dominate Let's start with a story dominating

:01:16.:01:33.

quite a few of those front pages. And that is Scotland. We have

:01:34.:01:43.

triggered Brexit which is what the Prime Minister announced and then

:01:44.:01:46.

immediately off the blocks comes the little box that is Nicola Sturgeon.

:01:47.:01:51.

I know her and an incredibly brilliant politician, but I think on

:01:52.:01:54.

this one, if you don't mind me saying so, Nicola, you've just gone

:01:55.:02:01.

a bit over the top, because she is provoking Theresa May she is

:02:02.:02:04.

provoking her back and now the Prime Minister is Saint we have to wait

:02:05.:02:10.

six years if Scotland wants a referendum. That seems an

:02:11.:02:12.

extraordinarily long time. I she said it would have to wait until

:02:13.:02:20.

after Brexit. Why six years? The big problem is that the Scottish will

:02:21.:02:23.

not stand for it. If you want a war, that is it. She hasn't quite said

:02:24.:02:33.

six years, this is an extrapolation. She said it is not before the Brexit

:02:34.:02:38.

vote or not before this and then is to be time for Scotland's assess the

:02:39.:02:45.

Brexit deal. It is suggesting here it would need a new mandate in the

:02:46.:02:49.

2021 election and therefore would stretch on for another 18 months.

:02:50.:02:55.

That's all conjecture. What is happening is there will not be an

:02:56.:02:59.

instant referendum, because the Prime Minister doesn't want to

:03:00.:03:01.

interfere with the Brexit negotiations. Sturgeon has said

:03:02.:03:06.

light have one as early as next year. Yes, but she knows that's

:03:07.:03:11.

impossible for the Prime Minister to agree to. Well, she will not want to

:03:12.:03:17.

come aboard a Scotland in the meantime? They don't have a vote in

:03:18.:03:22.

the Scottish Parliament next week. How can they keep two warring

:03:23.:03:26.

factions, because that's what will happen, how can you keep them apart?

:03:27.:03:31.

My front are very excited about what is happening now. Scotland could

:03:32.:03:36.

easily swing behind Nicola Sturgeon. Because last time, in the last

:03:37.:03:39.

referendum, and the Scots voted to stay in because they were promised

:03:40.:03:44.

that way we would stay in Europe and get all this lovely Carbon capture

:03:45.:03:49.

and billions for wind farms and then it disappeared afterwards. They felt

:03:50.:03:53.

betrayed. So no wonder Nicola Sturgeon is fighting for it. They

:03:54.:03:58.

didn't although because they wanted to remain in Europe are the last

:03:59.:04:04.

referendum. But now they don't trust what is coming up. If they want to

:04:05.:04:10.

leave, it is up to them ultimately, but it can't actually happen when...

:04:11.:04:18.

If it does wait six years, they could potentially then vote them,

:04:19.:04:25.

and that's up to the Scottish people to decide. Be not to jeopardise the

:04:26.:04:28.

Brexit negotiations, that is the principal point. The Guardian has

:04:29.:04:35.

picked up on this same story. Sturgeon may have sealed the fate of

:04:36.:04:41.

the UK. A slightly different take. That is Nicola Sturgeon's argument,

:04:42.:04:46.

that by rejecting what she sees as a legitimate demand for a referendum

:04:47.:04:50.

more or less immediately, therefore, that will do what you say can

:04:51.:04:53.

galvanise support for independence. That might happen. It is a risk for

:04:54.:04:59.

Theresa May, but she was not a position where she could do anything

:05:00.:05:04.

else because Brexit. Every single Council in Scotland, I think I've

:05:05.:05:08.

read, voted to Remained, because they want to stay closer to Europe

:05:09.:05:12.

and if they're going to have any chance of that, they want to get out

:05:13.:05:15.

of the United Kingdom. I think is the most... It is like some kind of

:05:16.:05:21.

nightmare I've landed on. Who would have bought five years ago we would

:05:22.:05:26.

be in this mess? The Prime Minister of the employed to gather to the

:05:27.:05:29.

Brexit, Scotland will come out of EU anyway. But they will. Most of them

:05:30.:05:38.

want to stay in though. Because they like to blame others for all their

:05:39.:05:42.

ills, don't they? Roger-Yves Bost no! No! The Metro again picking up

:05:43.:05:59.

on this real row going on between a Nicola Sturgeon and Theresa May, two

:06:00.:06:04.

very strong women. Scots fury as they blocks referendum. Both sides

:06:05.:06:12.

seem to be rushing up the rhetoric? Particularly from Sturgeon's

:06:13.:06:16.

viewpoint, I understand why she's doing it. It plays the advantage to

:06:17.:06:23.

do it. Whether in the longer and if push comes to shove she actually

:06:24.:06:26.

think persuade people of the economic risks and someone and the

:06:27.:06:30.

real prospect of what will be like being part of a small country in the

:06:31.:06:36.

European Union as opposed to... Small countries do very well. Look

:06:37.:06:42.

at Slovenia. But as you are saying, this is a classic... It is what is

:06:43.:06:53.

called a face that sandbox. In the Glasgow edition should be smiling.

:06:54.:07:02.

-- she will be smiling. Letters have a look at some other stories in the

:07:03.:07:08.

papers in the morning. Martin, The Times. They be running some

:07:09.:07:16.

investigations and what they been pointing out is that when adverts

:07:17.:07:22.

placed by all sorts of businesses, including the Cabinet Office which

:07:23.:07:25.

is pulled many adverts from the Internet because Google and other

:07:26.:07:32.

Internet providers are placing their adverts alongside extremist content,

:07:33.:07:38.

which is allowing extremists, reverent or racists, to raise money

:07:39.:07:40.

off the back of advertising. When I was doing a independent

:07:41.:07:59.

review for the Government, which they still haven't done anything

:08:00.:08:04.

with, when I look to the recall website across Europe, you would

:08:05.:08:06.

find there were loads of them and they had got all sorts of Thai

:08:07.:08:12.

massage parlour adverts and sorts of ads and I'm glad that Google is

:08:13.:08:18.

being hauled in and Twitter as well and being as what they are doing.

:08:19.:08:24.

Yes, placed alongside other unsavoury content of an advert is

:08:25.:08:30.

viewed, it generates revenue for the person putting up the unsavoury

:08:31.:08:38.

content. Another example of how difficult it is to police the

:08:39.:08:45.

Internet. Another interesting story, going back to the cover-macro

:08:46.:08:54.

Telegraph fear about the role of GCHQ in this spying on the other

:08:55.:09:01.

side of the Atlantic. Trump my like to come up with some evidence for

:09:02.:09:04.

saying that Obama spied on him and they seem to think that GCHQ are

:09:05.:09:11.

spies and somehow or other they held a bomb to spy on Trump in the

:09:12.:09:19.

Telegraph. It is claimed they got intelligence agencies to spy on him

:09:20.:09:24.

and that has been roundly rubbished by his owner agencies so easy now as

:09:25.:09:29.

the final of justifying this, so the new argument is is that we were

:09:30.:09:33.

doing at our behalf of the Americans, because you can't find

:09:34.:09:40.

our fingerprints on it in America. We have actually had a statement

:09:41.:09:46.

from a GCHQ tonight saying that recent allegations by media

:09:47.:09:51.

commentator judge Andrew Napolitano about GCHQ being asked to conduct a

:09:52.:09:56.

wiretapping against the then President-elect Art nonsense. They

:09:57.:09:59.

are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored. An extremely strong

:10:00.:10:08.

statesman. Whenever Trump seems to get in trouble, he comes up with

:10:09.:10:14.

some angle for getting him out of there by distracting you. And this

:10:15.:10:18.

sounds like a classic distraction. OK, so Trump was not there, Obama

:10:19.:10:24.

wasn't doing it, but perhaps the British were doing it for him. And

:10:25.:10:29.

there was a reference to the original allegation which was

:10:30.:10:35.

repeated by Trump's press secretary. Letters touch on a couple of other

:10:36.:10:39.

slightly lighter stories in the papers in the morning. The Bake Off.

:10:40.:10:52.

The new line-up. , Well, we've got a fascinating... Sandy toxic and Noel

:10:53.:10:57.

Fielding. You normally see the latter on satirical shows.

:10:58.:11:09.

I don't know whether either of them can cook. It could be quite

:11:10.:11:12.

entertaining. This new line-up, do you think you

:11:13.:11:29.

will be a success, Martin? It'll be hard to recapture the success of the

:11:30.:11:37.

original, who knows? Channel 4 doesn't begin to get the audience

:11:38.:11:41.

that the BBC do, so they won't get 40 million or whatever the BBC was

:11:42.:11:49.

getting. -- 14 million. Won just time to look at a terrific picture

:11:50.:11:55.

on the front page of the Times. It's a pitch of the Downing Street cat,

:11:56.:12:04.

Larry. Apparently, the mouse ran away and escapes and therefore the

:12:05.:12:05.

cat is obviously not very good. One of the photographers there in

:12:06.:12:30.

Downing Street of those the big battle between Theresa May Nicola

:12:31.:12:34.

Sturgeon, but of course, Larry the cat has stolen the limelight for a

:12:35.:12:44.

moment. Sometimes give his incriminating documents they

:12:45.:12:46.

shouldn't be displayed, but this is a beautiful photo. At the next time

:12:47.:12:49.

you're standing at Downing Street, you need to look for this mouse.

:12:50.:12:57.

Thank you both. Don't forget you can see the front

:12:58.:13:00.
