deadline day draws to a close and we will tell you about the rise in the


rankings of Britain's nude tennis star Johanna Konta. First, the


Papers -- new. Hello and welcome to


our look ahead to what the papers With me are Caroline Frost,


Entertainment Editor of the Huffington Post and


Parliamentary journalist Tony Grew. The Metro leads with the death


of a British tourist It seems he was trampled by


the animal and gored by its tusk. On the front of the i,


the paper says pay differences between managers and more junior


staff, within the public sector, The Financial Times says that Russia


is preparing to sell off state-owned assets, including the airline


Aeroflot to try to replace revenue Sir Terry Wogan is fondly remembered


on the front of the Daily Express. His last words to his priest


were apparently: "Everything's The Daily Telegraph headlines


the drawn-out talks over the terms It also features a picture of Lily


James, currently starring in the And she's also on the front page


of the Times. But its top story concerns


possible Cabinet disagreements And the Guardian has the news we've


been covering here this evening, that brain damage in babies linked


to the Zika virus is now considered Let's begin. We are going to start


with the Daily Mail and maybe you might read the headline for us.


David Cameron has been creaking toward some sort of European Union


agreement with Donald Tusk but apparently many people are not very


happy. Is that it then, Mr Cameron? That is their headline. He has been


racking up thousands of air miles, if he hadn't gone anywhere, I am


sure he would have been bunkered in his Downing Street home. Crucially


freedom of movement remains untouched and eurosceptics are


calling it one big letdown. That is not going to go down well. That is


reflected on the front page of the Times this morning. I think this


story has been quite heavily indicated that the Home Secretary is


going to play tough with the Prime Minister over this, it was a very


difficult ask for David Cameron and he has a lot of problems that are


just beginning. A significant amount of Tory party MPs have said they


will wait to see what he comes back with them then they will make a


decision whether they would vote to stay or leave. Similarly, other


cabinet members may not be interested in the Brexit campaign.


There is a theory that there are those closest to him, like Theresa


May and Michael Gove, they are all declared eurosceptics but if one of


them was to lead the middle road of Brexit, not the right wing


Eurosceptic side, but that might be quite damaging to the Prime


Minister. Also Boris Johnson. These are main candidates to succeed the


Prime Minister along with George Osborne, who is completely tied to


these negotiations. A significant number will be very disappointed


with what he came back with. How do you think the vote will go? If they


are hoping to sort all of this out by June, those who are willing to


position themselves in the Tory party post David Cameron will have


to sort things out very quickly. Does it come down to your favourite


politician or your favourite European Union deal or is it really


in the gut? I think it is in the guts, but I don't know. The


conservative party is Eurosceptic and the MPs are probably Eurosceptic


and David Cameron is trying to broadly stitch together a deal. This


is a racist time for him, never mind what the public think -- crisis


time. Corporate tax issues also feature in the Times. Certainly


there were people who thought the Google deal set a precedent and


others may not be lining up. It wasn't unprecedented, bad deal. A


similar deal was done with Amazon and MPs complained bitterly.


Basically what this says is that Facebook is putting aside $2 billion


in a war chest to deal with all of these taxation demands they will


have from multiple jurisdictions across the world, while in the UK,


they paid ?4327 in British corporation tax, and they're using


their lawyers to challenge that and demand more money. I think it is


interesting that the Times points out that none of the 870,000


ordinary British taxpayers received fixed penalty notices, none of them


will have the opportunity to negotiate the way Facebook has. This


is all we know. We know that the big chains will always have more power,


this is the tax equivalent. Facebook and Google are so big and powerful


that they pretty much can dictate the terms. But where are these tax


havens? Luxembourg and Ireland. That his European Union issue. Maybe you


should ask David Cameron tomorrow -- that is a. Guardian. The soaring


cost of loneliness among old people. The premise of this story is that


because people are so lonely, they are staying in hospital longer than


they perhaps should. I find this very saddening for many reasons.


They are saying that because the age group has moved up and people are


living longer, but the communities they have based themselves around


have been fragmented through nuclear families moving around, now you have


this huge group of people that have no support system personally and


wind up in Accident and Emergency. They call them the dormitories for


older people. That will have impact on the National Health Services. I


see that they're kind of couching it in recognisable financial terms but


this should be a social concern as well, never mind the cost or the


financial burdens on the tax system of the country. This has been in the


political debate for many months now. The lack of social care is


starting to impact the NHS. Absolutely. There is a rising cost


of social care that is a major issue to deal with and also, we have to


talk about this frankly. Families are less and less keen to look after


their older family members and that is frustrating for people. Why is


this a responsibility for the state? Devon and Cornwall have


research that say a third of patients admitted to Accident and


Emergency had very infrequent social interaction, it is not just about


loneliness call -- causing burdens in that area, but they are also


moving to other areas and becoming cut off. The Local Government


Association 's are saying research digest loneliness can be more


damaging than smoking 15 cigarettes per day, they have a 50% higher


chance than developing clinical illness. It is a huge issue. Did you


see that Facebook post where someone wrote about moving to a new town, a


mother whose children were school-age, and she made new friends


because she posted this thing on Facebook. It is a bit of a shameful


thing to have to admit to, for some reason. The Telegraph, should big


companies which pay their shareholders lots of money and big


dividends, should the taxpayer be paying for anything for them? The


government has put aside ?5 million to encourage big companies to switch


over to energy-efficient light bulbs. I understand how this can be


spun as us giving money to these companies, but what I want to point


out is that ministers have created this scheme to reduce the risk of


blackouts in the coming winters by cutting energy and electricity


demands. If they were socially and environmentally responsible


companies, they would be replacing their own lightbulbs. It is very


strange. I find a list of those who donate very strange. The Football


Association. Why do companies like that have such a great need? It is


about how much you encourage companies to be environmentally


friendly and how much they should want to do it and present that to


the public. Absolutely. You are right to point out that consumer


pressure should be the biggest driver of change in organizations


that deal with consumers that some of them, like the Football


Association, I don't know anything about their lightbulbs or how well


lit their office is. The big story of the day, she's pictured on all


the newspapers. I am really enjoying watching her on War and Piece. --


Peace. This is one of down to's alumni -- Downton Abbey's. She is


simultaneously about to be in a film called pride and prejudice -- Pride


and Prejudice and Zombies. What is that about? It is exactly what you


would expect. I thought it may have been a subtle play on words. No. She


is also dating Matt Smith. They could be the next power couple of


show business in the UK. Just a word on this. She is an actress who has


catapulted into the limelight by domestic Thomas on our televisions


rather than big screen -- dramas. That's true. The other ladies from


the show have also gone on to Hollywood to make their mark on the


big screen. Equally they are coming back in the other direction. The


next big box set is the next big thing. The snobbery that used to be


big screen versus smallscreen has all but disappeared. Are you


enjoying War and Peace? It is one of my favourite. I don't have much to


say about that. The talk about five years ago was the transition of big


stars from big screen to smallscreen and it has now changed the other


way. Netflix are investing ?1 billion in programmes which


outstrips even what Hollywood studios are spending. It is a very


interesting progression. Cinema is still a big part of it but really


big stars are now doing something like House of Cards and so forth. We


are seeing YouTube stars also make larger shows. People are making


films in their bedrooms. Everything we saw in music ten years ago, is


now being replicated in TD. -- TV.


No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
