that Britain will be punished by its allies if it votes for Brexit.

Let's start with the i. Slightly different take, especially to the
BBC's. We have done our own independent investigative
journalism. The headline is good news for Britain's mental health.
Indeed. A number of newspapers are focusing on mental health today. It
seems to come about in relation to people being briefed about a speech
the Prime Minister might give tomorrow announcing this ?1 billion
of spending. We're not entirely sure if this is new money, whether it
might be money previously promised. But as you mentioned at the top of
the hour, the story about payments falling. Mental health is a huge
crisis in the UK. It is something we are becoming more aware of and in
certain cases it is becoming more of an issue. It is a big issue. Whether
this extra ?1 billion is extra or if it will be sufficient, that is a big
question. It is a drop in the ocean of the kind of problem we have. We
have a high proportion, 25% of people in the course of their
lifetime facing mental health problems. The NHS has done a review
of elderly people having mental healthcare right now, either at home
or in care homes, and it was not a great read. Part of the issue we are
talking about is that one in ten children have a diagnosable mental
health condition. What is going on is this is a ticking timebomb that
people know about. It is, located because we are underfunded in terms
of training -- complicated. We are not training enough people to deal
with mental health issues. They vary and are difficult. If you go to the
NHS and are lucky enough to get sessions, this is for adults, you
get six sessions, and that is not enough even with an experienced
psychotherapist. Then you have children, one in ten, that is a huge
rate. As suicide rates are going up, that is new. We have a real
problem. We spent a tiny percentage of NHS money on mental health
issues. We spent a lot on physical health and very little on mental
health. ?1 billion is not a lot of money when you think about an entire
shift, which has to happen with treating people through centres with
properly trained therapists with enough sessions and referrals. At
the moment, I actually work in the centre, and it feels like it is a
bit of a mess. We mention children. Should we go onto the Times? They
focus on an issue of underfunding, especially with children.
Five-year-old children on adult mental health wards is the headline.
That sums it up. It is not just a few kids. No, it isn't. 391 children
were on adult wards, which is scary for a child. Why is it scary? If you
are on an adult wards, it would feel extremely threatening, especially if
you already have a mental health issue and are surrounded by adults
with mental health issues. If you are in a hospital and have a severe
mental health issue, most people get referred to the type of places I
volunteer at. It is hard to get a bed on a mental health ward,
incredibly hard. If you are there and are a little child, you are with
people who have severe mental health issues, and that is a very scary
place for a child. Children should not share any institution with
adults. No, there are also out of ethical issues. The Times does
mention that particular case with a teenage girl, and they could not
find a bed for her. They put her in a police cell. This just can't
continue. That is one of the issues, children are sometimes
ending up in adult wards because they are no longer supposed to be
kept in cells. That element of shifting the problem. It does not
get away from the chief problem, which is that we have a healthcare
system not really designed for mental health. It is an enormous
area itself, not just a single illness we need to deal with. The
health service was not designed for this. Also on the front page of the
Times is more EU news. This time Boris Brexit. Oh, Boris. He is
afraid of leaving the EU. Everything about Boris is about Will he be the
future leader of the Tory party. He is being cryptic. Everybody seems to
be cryptic at the moment and probably will be for another week.
After that, we can expect after Cameron comes back from bustles with
his deal... How much of a division to you think we will see? In the
newspapers today we see talk about six Cabinet ministers who are in
favour of Brexit and make campaign for Brexit. We don't know exactly
how vocal people will be. There is doubt a runner. Of course the Brexit
campaign are looking for a big face. It could be Boris. How bad is that
for David Cameron? It is a referendum. The government policy is
for a referendum, not necessarily to stay. You can't tell people you
can't vote no if it is a referendum. If we read what David Cameron is
saying, he is campaigning for us to stay in. We also have George
Osborne, and the mood music from him has been in support of staying in.
It is very bad for the government leadership is significant parts of
the government are against it. The attorney general made back Brexit
according to the Daily Telegraph. The story does not say he has come
out and said that, but there is a feeling if David Cameron does not
get the conditions we want, he might actually back Brexit because there
is a feeling there is too much influence of the European courts in
the UK. That is a big story. The Attorney General ratifies outlaws.
That is a huge story. -- outlaws. Would be huge if it was the other
way and he said let's stay in? If he is glossing over the activities of
the European courts, again, this is a singer figure. -- senior figure.
The other thing is if he says the deal David Cameron comes back with
is not legally enforceable or flimsy, that will be unhelpful. That
is his area of expertise. It says David Cameron will get rid of the
European bill of rights and replace it. New legislation doesn't always
automatically go through. Proposals can be changed and big issues take
many years to get through. We only have a few minutes. Lucy is keen to
talk about tumble dryers lineup. This story has been going around for
a while -- blowing up. I thought this was all slightly nutty. I
ignored the warning. Now I realise that I might be putting my entire
household at risk. 6000 tumble dryer fires in six years. I have never
left one on and left the house. Everybody does it. I never knew. I
don't think you should believe anything like that on. We should
save the environment. Use clothes lines. I will not use a tumble dryer
now. But I was a bit shocked by that. Let's move on to the
Independent. The story about the Israeli boycotts. Boycotting of
Israeli goods to be a criminal offence. I read this a couple of
times. I can't get my head around it. I was a little bit confused,
because you can't just then things. The World Trade Organisation rules
on public procurement. It says are funded bodies cannot disseminate
against Israeli companies. -- discriminate. At the moment, we saw
this to the tax avoidance campaign. Everybody said the NHS should stop
buying services from tax avoidance, then realised they couldn't. It
seemed the government is going to put additional rules and that make
it more difficult for local authorities to impose bans. You
understand this, then? We should have done the BAFTA 's. We have run
out of time. So much more interesting. I am not interested in
Leonardo DiCaprio. Thank you for taking us through tomorrow's papers.
Thank you for watching as well. Plenty more on the BAFTA 's coming
up, and the film review is next. Don't go away.
