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

:00:33.:00:37.

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

:01:35.:01:39.

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

:01:40.:01:43.

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

:01:49.:01:53.

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

:01:54.:01:58.

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

:01:59.:02:02.

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

:02:03.:02:08.

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

:02:09.:02:14.

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

:02:15.:02:24.

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

:02:25.:02:34.

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

:02:35.:02:42.

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

:02:43.:02:47.

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

:02:48.:02:54.

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

:02:55.:03:01.

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

:03:02.:03:04.

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

:03:05.:03:11.

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

:03:12.:03:15.

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

:03:16.:03:21.

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

:03:22.:03:27.

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

:03:28.:03:31.

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

:03:32.:03:39.

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

:03:40.:03:43.

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

:03:44.:03:46.

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

:03:47.:03:52.

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

:03:53.:04:00.

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

:04:01.:04:05.

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

:04:06.:04:13.

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

:04:14.:04:19.

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

:04:20.:04:25.

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

:04:26.:04:31.

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

:04:32.:04:41.

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

:04:42.:04:42.

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

:04:43.:04:46.

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

:04:47.:04:52.

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

:04:53.:04:57.

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

:04:58.:05:00.

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

:05:01.:05:07.

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

:05:08.:05:11.

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

:05:12.:05:17.

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

:05:18.:05:25.

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

:05:26.:05:31.

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

:05:32.:05:41.

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

:05:42.:05:47.

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

:05:48.:05:54.

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

:05:55.:06:01.

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

:06:02.:06:13.

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

:06:14.:06:15.

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

:06:16.:06:23.

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

:06:24.:06:27.

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

:06:28.:06:32.

ring fenced, especially countries like India that have a space

:06:33.:06:36.

programme. From what I can understand from talking to Yorkshire

:06:37.:06:40.

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

:06:41.:06:46.

have seen their own communities have cutbacks with educational projects

:06:47.:06:51.

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

:06:52.:06:54.

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

:06:55.:07:01.

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

:07:02.:07:06.

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

:07:07.:07:11.

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

:07:12.:07:18.

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

:07:19.:07:22.

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

:07:23.:07:28.

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

:07:29.:07:41.

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

:07:42.:07:45.

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

:07:46.:07:52.

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

:07:53.:07:57.

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

:07:58.:08:00.

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

:08:01.:08:04.

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

:08:05.:08:09.

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

:08:10.:08:14.

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

:08:15.:08:19.

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

:08:20.:08:25.

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

:08:26.:08:31.

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

:08:32.:08:36.

four Cabinet members who are up for knighthoods including Philip Hammond

:08:37.:08:48.

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

:08:49.:08:55.

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

:08:56.:09:00.

is a lot of campaigners and very unusually it includes Philip

:09:01.:09:09.

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

:09:10.:09:15.

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

:09:16.:09:25.

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

:09:26.:09:37.

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

:09:38.:09:41.

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

:09:42.:09:50.

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

:09:51.:09:53.

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

:09:54.:09:57.

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

:09:58.:10:01.

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

:10:02.:10:05.

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

:10:06.:10:13.

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

:10:14.:10:19.

making the news tomorrow. Coming up next, the
