Pregnant women are advised to avoid all but essential travel to Florida


after the state confirmed that four people have conducted this week a


virus from local mosquitoes. Hello and welcome to our look ahead


at what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. Thank you to both my


guess for joining me this evening. Here are the headlines for tomorrow.


The Observer reports that the form and pensions minister believes the


chapel Lock potential for state pensions should be dropped to save


billions of pounds for better causes. The Sunday Express splashes


on the same story and reports that millions of people Faith nature


matter cut to their retirement income if the government pushes


ahead with its state pension plans. The Sunday Telegraph says that


Theresa May will tomorrow pledge to rid the world of the barbaric evil


of slavery as she sets out her personal mission is the Prime


Minister. Also on the front pages, news that around 50,000 British


holiday-makers in Florida should holiday-makers in Florida should


avoid unprotected sex because of the risk from these you can virus. The


Sunday Times leads with news that prominent campaigners to remain in


the EU and former cabinet ministers are in line for knighthoods in David


Cameron's resignation honours list. It also reveals that at least for


active terror plots in the UK are being investigated by the police.


The Mail on Sunday claims that women who have sex changes on the NHS are


being free fertility treatment so they can have babies activate the


comment. The Sunday Mirror alleges that the BBC will begin playing


circlet Richard's records, but says that The Star still plans to sue the


corporation for over ?1 million. We can begin. Lots of different topics.


We're going to start with The Observer. An interesting story in a


couple of papers talking about the Chapel Lock on pensions -- the


Chapel Lock. Some people are saying we cannot afford it. An ex-minister


has said that there is unaffordable and it should go towards it causes,


but what they have said is that you .5% of the pension has lifted many


pensioners out of poverty. What concerns me is the conversations I'm


having with my friends in Yorkshire. The next generation is going to have


less money than the pensioners. They are worried about job opportunities


and whether they will get a pension at all. They are worried about the


future. It feels like a pitch for the younger generation against the


older generation. Not all pensioners are rich and we have to realise


that. If they went by means testing would that be taken up by pensioners


who are proud? There is a suggestion that the people in their 30s or 40s


will be worse off than their parents. It is very difficult


politically because it was a promise that was made and it would be a


political hot potato, but we have already seen from Theresa May that


she is not frightened of having a look at things. Clearly if you have


an average increase of 2.5% when inflation is 1% and most people in


the public sector have had pegged paying creases or 1% maximum, you


can see that there is an imbalance. If you start to lick at means tested


universal benefits for pensioners, like the winter fuel allowance, you


could go some way to saying whether they need it or not and a lot of


people donate it to charity. This is a conversation. This has come from


someone who is no longer part of the government and who has always been


quite as spoken on pensions. Your magazine goes to people that are


brought. Do they feel well off if brought. Do they feel well off


they are retired? People are they are retired? People are


concerned about Brexit and how that will affect them so they are looking


forward and how it will affect their forward and how it will affect their


pensions, particularly with the currency rates. There is fear there


but as the story unfolds we will not know more until article 50 has been


invoked and then we will know how it will affect people. This is the same


story in The Sunday Express, about fear. The secret plan to cut your


pension. They are talking here about the triple-lock that has been


brought in to protect the pension. 2.5% these days is a lot. When this


came in inflation was the .2% and this could go down even further from


where it is at the moment. I have to laugh that this is a secret plan,


although the information has come from an interview she gave to The


Observer. We can go to the other story which is dominating some front


pages. Aid for trade, Britain will leverage its ?11 billion foreign aid


budget to build new trade deals once budget to build new trade deals once


leaves the European Union. What I found talking to people in Yorkshire


is that they have never understood the whole idea that this has been


ring fenced, especially countries like India that have a space


programme. From what I can understand from talking to Yorkshire


people, they struggled to understand how that is ring fenced and they


have seen their own communities have cutbacks with educational projects


and so on. They do not understand that this is ring fenced and other


things are not in that causes a lot of friction in the conversations


I've had with people from my neck of the woods. From the political side


of this, is this a sign that Theresa May is thinking she is the new broom


to sweep clean so let's get something back. We saw yesterday and


on Friday. This is her saying, everything is up for consideration


and scrutiny. I think she is right, people do wonder why this huge


amount of money is ring fenced at this time of austerity. I think it


is not so much the money or where it goes, it is the accountability for


how it is spent. There are very strict rules that you cannot give


aid for trade, but there must be a relationship whereby if you are


working with countries and giving aid to support their trade and to


boost their economy and make them more sustainable, clearly it makes


sense that you will be having a different conversation. I think this


is a good thing, it changes the relationship from being a


beneficiary to a partner. It is a bit more meaningful. We can see if


they have success with that. The main story in the Sunday time,


Cameron's honours for cronies. -- The Sunday Times. There is a


suggestion that they are going to receive lots of honours, including


four Cabinet members who are up for knighthoods including Philip Hammond


full. The honours keys are kept under lock and key and are released


under in Bago only. This is a leak and it is only a proposal list. It


is a lot of campaigners and very unusually it includes Philip


Hammond, who would be nine people have been proposed for a knighthood.


He is still serving in government as the Chancellor. There is a lot here


about Cameron's aids and his advisers and George Osborne is said


to get a companion of honour. The Sun of Jack Straw, the director of


the remaining campaign is said to be in line for a CBE. There is a


feeling that it is cronyism. That is right. I watch Theresa May recently


and she seemed to be moving to the centre ground and it seemed to be an


inclusive government, but the story feels like it is honours for


colleagues and friends and that does not sit well with the general


public. Is David Cameron's decision in the end. We will be back with


more from the papers at 11:30pm. We will be having a look at what is


making the news tomorrow. Coming up next, the
