blockbuster possibly live up to the hype? We will get the verdict on

:00:00.:00:00.

Ryan Reynolds, and the rest of the releases in the film review.

:00:00.:00:15.

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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are journalist Lucy Cavendish, and Tom Bergin, Reuters's

:00:19.:00:23.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:24.:00:32.

The Daily Telegraph leads with a story that Britain's most senior

:00:33.:00:35.

legal figure may vote to leave the EU.

:00:36.:00:37.

The Metro sticks with the EU theme, and the Foreign Secretary's warning

:00:38.:00:41.

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

:00:42.:00:44.

which show one person is diagnosed with diabetes every two minutes in

:00:45.:00:49.

The Times says air strikes in Syria may threaten a peace deal

:00:50.:00:53.

According to the Independent, all publicly funded

:00:54.:00:57.

institutions are to be banned from boycotting Israeli goods under

:00:58.:01:00.

Let's start with the i. Slightly different take, especially to the

:01:01.:01:14.

BBC's. We have done our own independent investigative

:01:15.:01:18.

journalism. The headline is good news for Britain's mental health.

:01:19.:01:24.

Indeed. A number of newspapers are focusing on mental health today. It

:01:25.:01:29.

seems to come about in relation to people being briefed about a speech

:01:30.:01:32.

the Prime Minister might give tomorrow announcing this ?1 billion

:01:33.:01:36.

of spending. We're not entirely sure if this is new money, whether it

:01:37.:01:42.

might be money previously promised. But as you mentioned at the top of

:01:43.:01:47.

the hour, the story about payments falling. Mental health is a huge

:01:48.:01:53.

crisis in the UK. It is something we are becoming more aware of and in

:01:54.:01:58.

certain cases it is becoming more of an issue. It is a big issue. Whether

:01:59.:02:06.

this extra ?1 billion is extra or if it will be sufficient, that is a big

:02:07.:02:12.

question. It is a drop in the ocean of the kind of problem we have. We

:02:13.:02:18.

have a high proportion, 25% of people in the course of their

:02:19.:02:21.

lifetime facing mental health problems. The NHS has done a review

:02:22.:02:27.

of elderly people having mental healthcare right now, either at home

:02:28.:02:32.

or in care homes, and it was not a great read. Part of the issue we are

:02:33.:02:38.

talking about is that one in ten children have a diagnosable mental

:02:39.:02:42.

health condition. What is going on is this is a ticking timebomb that

:02:43.:02:48.

people know about. It is, located because we are underfunded in terms

:02:49.:02:54.

of training -- complicated. We are not training enough people to deal

:02:55.:02:58.

with mental health issues. They vary and are difficult. If you go to the

:02:59.:03:03.

NHS and are lucky enough to get sessions, this is for adults, you

:03:04.:03:10.

get six sessions, and that is not enough even with an experienced

:03:11.:03:12.

psychotherapist. Then you have children, one in ten, that is a huge

:03:13.:03:17.

rate. As suicide rates are going up, that is new. We have a real

:03:18.:03:26.

problem. We spent a tiny percentage of NHS money on mental health

:03:27.:03:30.

issues. We spent a lot on physical health and very little on mental

:03:31.:03:34.

health. ?1 billion is not a lot of money when you think about an entire

:03:35.:03:38.

shift, which has to happen with treating people through centres with

:03:39.:03:43.

properly trained therapists with enough sessions and referrals. At

:03:44.:03:49.

the moment, I actually work in the centre, and it feels like it is a

:03:50.:03:53.

bit of a mess. We mention children. Should we go onto the Times? They

:03:54.:04:00.

focus on an issue of underfunding, especially with children.

:04:01.:04:02.

Five-year-old children on adult mental health wards is the headline.

:04:03.:04:08.

That sums it up. It is not just a few kids. No, it isn't. 391 children

:04:09.:04:15.

were on adult wards, which is scary for a child. Why is it scary? If you

:04:16.:04:23.

are on an adult wards, it would feel extremely threatening, especially if

:04:24.:04:26.

you already have a mental health issue and are surrounded by adults

:04:27.:04:31.

with mental health issues. If you are in a hospital and have a severe

:04:32.:04:36.

mental health issue, most people get referred to the type of places I

:04:37.:04:43.

volunteer at. It is hard to get a bed on a mental health ward,

:04:44.:04:48.

incredibly hard. If you are there and are a little child, you are with

:04:49.:04:52.

people who have severe mental health issues, and that is a very scary

:04:53.:04:57.

place for a child. Children should not share any institution with

:04:58.:05:01.

adults. No, there are also out of ethical issues. The Times does

:05:02.:05:11.

mention that particular case with a teenage girl, and they could not

:05:12.:05:15.

find a bed for her. They put her in a police cell. This just can't

:05:16.:05:22.

continue. That is one of the issues, children are sometimes

:05:23.:05:28.

ending up in adult wards because they are no longer supposed to be

:05:29.:05:33.

kept in cells. That element of shifting the problem. It does not

:05:34.:05:37.

get away from the chief problem, which is that we have a healthcare

:05:38.:05:41.

system not really designed for mental health. It is an enormous

:05:42.:05:47.

area itself, not just a single illness we need to deal with. The

:05:48.:05:52.

health service was not designed for this. Also on the front page of the

:05:53.:05:59.

Times is more EU news. This time Boris Brexit. Oh, Boris. He is

:06:00.:06:12.

afraid of leaving the EU. Everything about Boris is about Will he be the

:06:13.:06:16.

future leader of the Tory party. He is being cryptic. Everybody seems to

:06:17.:06:22.

be cryptic at the moment and probably will be for another week.

:06:23.:06:26.

After that, we can expect after Cameron comes back from bustles with

:06:27.:06:37.

his deal... How much of a division to you think we will see? In the

:06:38.:06:42.

newspapers today we see talk about six Cabinet ministers who are in

:06:43.:06:46.

favour of Brexit and make campaign for Brexit. We don't know exactly

:06:47.:06:53.

how vocal people will be. There is doubt a runner. Of course the Brexit

:06:54.:06:57.

campaign are looking for a big face. It could be Boris. How bad is that

:06:58.:07:02.

for David Cameron? It is a referendum. The government policy is

:07:03.:07:08.

for a referendum, not necessarily to stay. You can't tell people you

:07:09.:07:17.

can't vote no if it is a referendum. If we read what David Cameron is

:07:18.:07:22.

saying, he is campaigning for us to stay in. We also have George

:07:23.:07:32.

Osborne, and the mood music from him has been in support of staying in.

:07:33.:07:36.

It is very bad for the government leadership is significant parts of

:07:37.:07:41.

the government are against it. The attorney general made back Brexit

:07:42.:07:48.

according to the Daily Telegraph. The story does not say he has come

:07:49.:07:53.

out and said that, but there is a feeling if David Cameron does not

:07:54.:07:57.

get the conditions we want, he might actually back Brexit because there

:07:58.:08:03.

is a feeling there is too much influence of the European courts in

:08:04.:08:11.

the UK. That is a big story. The Attorney General ratifies outlaws.

:08:12.:08:18.

That is a huge story. -- outlaws. Would be huge if it was the other

:08:19.:08:24.

way and he said let's stay in? If he is glossing over the activities of

:08:25.:08:28.

the European courts, again, this is a singer figure. -- senior figure.

:08:29.:08:37.

The other thing is if he says the deal David Cameron comes back with

:08:38.:08:40.

is not legally enforceable or flimsy, that will be unhelpful. That

:08:41.:08:47.

is his area of expertise. It says David Cameron will get rid of the

:08:48.:08:51.

European bill of rights and replace it. New legislation doesn't always

:08:52.:08:59.

automatically go through. Proposals can be changed and big issues take

:09:00.:09:02.

many years to get through. We only have a few minutes. Lucy is keen to

:09:03.:09:07.

talk about tumble dryers lineup. This story has been going around for

:09:08.:09:17.

a while -- blowing up. I thought this was all slightly nutty. I

:09:18.:09:23.

ignored the warning. Now I realise that I might be putting my entire

:09:24.:09:31.

household at risk. 6000 tumble dryer fires in six years. I have never

:09:32.:09:36.

left one on and left the house. Everybody does it. I never knew. I

:09:37.:09:45.

don't think you should believe anything like that on. We should

:09:46.:09:48.

save the environment. Use clothes lines. I will not use a tumble dryer

:09:49.:09:54.

now. But I was a bit shocked by that. Let's move on to the

:09:55.:10:01.

Independent. The story about the Israeli boycotts. Boycotting of

:10:02.:10:06.

Israeli goods to be a criminal offence. I read this a couple of

:10:07.:10:10.

times. I can't get my head around it. I was a little bit confused,

:10:11.:10:20.

because you can't just then things. The World Trade Organisation rules

:10:21.:10:25.

on public procurement. It says are funded bodies cannot disseminate

:10:26.:10:31.

against Israeli companies. -- discriminate. At the moment, we saw

:10:32.:10:37.

this to the tax avoidance campaign. Everybody said the NHS should stop

:10:38.:10:42.

buying services from tax avoidance, then realised they couldn't. It

:10:43.:10:47.

seemed the government is going to put additional rules and that make

:10:48.:10:51.

it more difficult for local authorities to impose bans. You

:10:52.:10:59.

understand this, then? We should have done the BAFTA 's. We have run

:11:00.:11:04.

out of time. So much more interesting. I am not interested in

:11:05.:11:13.

Leonardo DiCaprio. Thank you for taking us through tomorrow's papers.

:11:14.:11:17.

Thank you for watching as well. Plenty more on the BAFTA 's coming

:11:18.:11:22.

up, and the film review is next. Don't go away.

:11:23.:11:23.
