Hello. Welcome to our look ahead at what the papers will be bringing us

:00:20.:00:27.

tomorrow. With me are political editors from the Sunday express,

:00:28.:00:31.

Caroline Wheeler, and from the Sunday express, ten ship in. Take a

:00:32.:00:37.

look at tomorrow's from pages first. The Observer reports that US

:00:38.:00:41.

presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton sheers that Obama is proposal to the

:00:42.:00:50.

-- op Ozil to Britain leaving the EU. The Sunday Times reports this

:00:51.:00:55.

year the super rich have suffered the worst decline since the

:00:56.:01:02.

financial crisis. The Independent on Sunday carries a photograph of one

:01:03.:01:08.

of the events to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.

:01:09.:01:12.

Its main story is about a hospital in Lancashire asking the military to

:01:13.:01:15.

help. And cold callers could face fines of up to half ?1 million in

:01:16.:01:25.

the Sunday express. Let's begin with the Observer. Kelly Clinton only the

:01:26.:01:28.

latest US politician to way into the debate about Brexit. Those of us who

:01:29.:01:38.

remember covering the 2008 campaign will be delighted that Hillary

:01:39.:01:41.

Clinton agrees with Obama on something. The people in the Brexit

:01:42.:01:48.

campaign who did not like listening to what Obama had to say where

:01:49.:01:54.

saying this guy is a lame duck and we do not have too care what he

:01:55.:01:57.

thinks because he is out on his air soon but this is the woman who will

:01:58.:02:03.

be possibly replacing him and she is saying the same thing. It has been a

:02:04.:02:10.

big week for this issue and here we see that our closest ally,

:02:11.:02:15.

admittedly both on the Democratic side, there are some Republicans who

:02:16.:02:20.

do not take that view but broadly speaking that is a good headline for

:02:21.:02:26.

the government. Our political corresponded Carol Walker saying

:02:27.:02:32.

tonight that the decision is a moment we should listen to our

:02:33.:02:37.

closest friends and allies. Does anyone know what impact this

:02:38.:02:39.

intervention and this road this weekend is going to be tomorrow, 80,

:02:40.:02:45.

is going to have on voters? There have been some polls done since

:02:46.:02:51.

Barack Obama 's intervention and it seems to have gone down fairly well

:02:52.:02:56.

as in people seeing his intervention as significant. It has blown some

:02:57.:03:02.

arguments out of the water, significantly on the economy. The

:03:03.:03:05.

idea we are not going to just sign up to a new trade deal with America

:03:06.:03:12.

they would rather do a deal with a block and we would be at the back of

:03:13.:03:16.

the queue. There are other interesting things said in some of

:03:17.:03:21.

the Sundays from other Brexit tears that they are worried they are

:03:22.:03:27.

losing some traction. We were seeing people moving the other way. It

:03:28.:03:30.

looks like the argument was running out for Leave and it seems that

:03:31.:03:38.

might be changing again. I think Hillary's intervention is

:03:39.:03:39.

significant because of this lame duck intervention. The Obama side

:03:40.:03:46.

might be getting overconfident now. There will be people saying if this

:03:47.:03:52.

starts to work with us, often it takes a week or so for this sort of

:03:53.:03:56.

thing to be recognised in the polls but some are saying the Goodwin 60/

:03:57.:04:05.

40. They are winning on immigration, losing on the economy and it is a

:04:06.:04:10.

score draw on trade but that is no longer a score draw because of Obama

:04:11.:04:19.

's intervention. And Borders rage at ridiculous weird Obama, the headline

:04:20.:04:25.

is not quite act up by what Boris Johnson is saying the ridiculous and

:04:26.:04:30.

weird is in relation to his arguments, not the man. I suspect

:04:31.:04:34.

there has been a lot of playing the man in the last couple of days.

:04:35.:04:40.

Those people will recognise that Boris, bless him, writes his own

:04:41.:04:44.

material but does not always have the internal break that is required.

:04:45.:04:49.

Interesting is the quote on page two which quotes someone in the Leave

:04:50.:04:54.

campaign saying we did not know Boris would be so provocative and he

:04:55.:04:59.

must stop going off piste. All the attention is focused on Michael Gove

:05:00.:05:04.

and Boris Johnson so everything they do is amplified. When he gets the

:05:05.:05:10.

tone wrong it affects all of them. We were talking about the

:05:11.:05:15.

intervention of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, the Democrats

:05:16.:05:18.

themselves are less convinced about this idea of more free trade gales,

:05:19.:05:22.

they are likely to be unpopular at home with the discussion of jobs

:05:23.:05:29.

being exported to China as a result. I wonder if some of the argument is

:05:30.:05:32.

not actually running in this direction? It is interesting. Obama

:05:33.:05:38.

talked a little more about this today as he did his town hall event.

:05:39.:05:44.

Some of the statements do seem a little bit contradictory. When we

:05:45.:05:47.

think about it in the context of written we are only interested in

:05:48.:05:51.

one thing, can we do a deal with America in the context of the key

:05:52.:05:58.

tip situation at the moment. We do not seem particularly well disposed

:05:59.:06:06.

to this? Exactly. Boris hit act at Obama saying it is absurd, as

:06:07.:06:09.

getting at the back of the cute given that the UK has never been

:06:10.:06:14.

able to do a free trade with the US and the EU has been seen to be the

:06:15.:06:18.

problem but it is more going on. As it points out in the piece here,

:06:19.:06:24.

Boris Johnson did Royal Barack Obama before he got here suggesting they

:06:25.:06:28.

might get rid of the rust of Churchill, basically something Obama

:06:29.:06:34.

hit back at immediately in a press conference. There was a bit of

:06:35.:06:38.

confrontation going on there anyway. Boris Johnson cannot control himself

:06:39.:06:42.

when it comes to these sort of arguments, he wants to hit back.

:06:43.:06:48.

Barack Obama was put up to this by David Cameron, they are denying

:06:49.:06:51.

specific quotes were handed over at I suspect Cameron and a couple of

:06:52.:06:57.

AIDS and Obama and a couple of AIDS had a small-scale meeting on Friday

:06:58.:07:03.

where they showed him the Boris article and the president does not

:07:04.:07:08.

do anger, he is no drama Obama but he was miffed enough that he went

:07:09.:07:11.

further than what other White House people were expecting him to. I was

:07:12.:07:17.

sitting in the press conference and there was something contrived about

:07:18.:07:21.

this story about the bust on the second floor. I am the one first

:07:22.:07:26.

broke the story of the bust in 2009, after I broke this story did was a

:07:27.:07:34.

second bus that was already in the. The first one was sent back. To the

:07:35.:07:41.

British Embassy. He was replaced by Martin Luther King. What are you

:07:42.:07:47.

going to do about that, boss? And on tomorrow's front page of the Sunday

:07:48.:07:53.

Times, tell us about this. The first major doctors strike is to go ahead

:07:54.:07:57.

on Wednesday. The government and BME have dug themselves into two rather

:07:58.:08:03.

deep holes. The Labour Party, some people from the Lib Dems, a former

:08:04.:08:08.

Tory health minister who only left the government a few months ago have

:08:09.:08:12.

all joined forces and said what you need to do, Jeremy Hunt, you can

:08:13.:08:17.

have your contract but let's roll it out slowly, let's have a pilot

:08:18.:08:22.

scheme, you are concerned about people dying on the weekend so let's

:08:23.:08:26.

look at that and answer the charge you have laid out that still allows

:08:27.:08:30.

you to fulfil your manifesto pledge. If you do all that there will be no

:08:31.:08:36.

doctors strike. They have got the BME on-board, the Royal College of

:08:37.:08:40.

surgeons on board who are saying patients come first and it is a

:08:41.:08:44.

disaster for both sides. They have thrown down the gauntlet at Jeremy

:08:45.:08:49.

Hunt saying you can get what you want and the doctors are prepared to

:08:50.:08:54.

go along with this. It lets him off the hook. His career is hanging by a

:08:55.:09:01.

thread. When you think of the number of cabinet ministers confronted over

:09:02.:09:05.

the years, people like Alan Milburn. Nye Bevan right at the start when he

:09:06.:09:10.

talked about stuffing the doctors mouths with gunk. It just took one

:09:11.:09:18.

catastrophic thing to happen, someone to die, having been left on

:09:19.:09:25.

a trolley for hours on end. The bullish aggressive people in

:09:26.:09:28.

government think if people start dying public support for the doctors

:09:29.:09:32.

will drop off a cliff but if you speak to hunt Cabinet colleagues

:09:33.:09:37.

they think this is a disastrous situation he needs to sort out and

:09:38.:09:41.

it chewed never have got this far. Everyone is looking for a ladder to

:09:42.:09:46.

climb and he is looking for a ladder and we will see if he climbs down.

:09:47.:09:51.

Now tell us about the story on your front page, Catherine. We do have

:09:52.:09:57.

the answer as to why all these amazing stars are dying. It is one

:09:58.:10:01.

of the questions of the week again after rinse and the Tory would. The

:10:02.:10:07.

planets are in a particular alignment not seen for the last 30

:10:08.:10:14.

years. Carrie Grant, Orson Welles all died. It is going to get worse

:10:15.:10:18.

this year but then it is not going to happen again until 2045. Thank

:10:19.:10:26.

goodness for that. Celebs, get through 2016 and then you will be

:10:27.:10:31.

all right. We might talk about that again. Thank you very much. More

:10:32.:10:38.

vapours for us in about one hour. Daesh

:10:39.:10:39.
