can Matt Damon reinvigorate Jason Bourne again? All the other top
movies in the film review. Welcome to our look ahead of what
the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. Rob and Natalie are with
me. Quite a few different from the last hour. According to the
financial time, Theresa May faces a revolt in the Treasury over China.
The heat is on for Sir Philip Green after the collapse of BHS. Bad news
for savers in the Daily Express. Warning of a double whammy from
rising inflation and a record low interest rates. Donald Trump in
trouble for his comments over a Muslim soldier killed in Iraq. A
story in the eye, 24 honours for the former Prime Minister 's entourage.
It also leaves the Daily Mail. All -- we will start with the honours.
Two of the women who are going to be honoured - aid who put George
Osborne on a diet and a fashion stylist. How surprised would anybody
be that the Bremain campaign are getting honoured when that is
exactly what the Prime Minister campaign for? It is curious, it is
odd to be annoyed by somebody who ostensibly fought on the same team
as the Prime Minister even if they then lost would be in the top of his
list to thank. It does not seem shocking to be rewarding loyalty of
purpose, if not loyalty of person. They chose pictures of two people do
not fit into that category. Stylist and an aide. Wet and haircut. This
is a style haircut. And at the Halep pose when he stood idly... LAUGHTER
Isn't it funny how you forget so quickly. Or you blank it out!
Politics has just kept going this year. On and on. A scoop by the
Sunday Times this morning to have this list which presumably was
handed over by somebody. It has run on into day two. I do not know much
about the fashion designer. But the transformation of George Osborne's
image did not do him much good. Earning about 100,000 pounds was
clearly not enough and she is about to get an OBE. Clearly a lot of
people do not think her achievements merit that. The remaining campaign
is accused of telling many exaggerations. -- remain campaign.
The Daily Telegraph, Tories in honours list revolt. Cameron accused
of devaluing the least. You wonder why anybody would ever there to do
this on the X it from number ten. -- except. There are bound to be names
people would disagree with. It is very strange. Probably most people,
even people who were not fans of the monarchic system, like me, kind of
get the idea of giving praise to those who have done hard work,
particularly for charities but I seem to remember the same kind of
grumpiness when we got an honours list after the Olympics. People
saying, they already won an Olympic medal, do they also need a gong?
Just turning up and doing your job and getting the gong, you are sort
of devaluing the system. People giving hundreds of hours to charity,
and instead there is someone who creates a diet on gives on
haircut... The last two prime ministers chose not to have
resignation honours. Tony Blair had an investigation and that stopped
him from doing it. John Major was the last by Minister to do this. Of
course, this is only the start of this sort of unhappiness. David
Cameron's honours on departure... In the Times, lives at risk as firemen
standing in full paramedics on a lot of occasions? It is an interesting
and important story. Many viewers may be quite either. If you or a
friend or family has a serious injury, a heart attack, they struck,
you expect to be rescued by a paramedic but many players services
are on correspondent duties. 4000 times a month you occurs. --
respondents. And there are people thinking they ask to do things
beyond their capability. A number of instances where people were having
heart attacks and they did not have the medical knowledge of treating
these. Why it is not sending paramedics? The short answer is
there is a shortage of paramedics. People say, it is not that hard, is
it? To be a paramedic. I mean, what could possibly be difficult about
what paramedic does and the answer is almost everything. 4000 cases in
a month, it is nearly 50,000 per year, to give that number its full
kind of impact. Across the whole country. Across the whole country
and I am sure the fire people who turn up are extremely, more than
extremely competent and they are terrific but the cases they are
being sent to could be catastrophic. Strokes, mental health issues,
broken hips, drug overdoses, and in one case a distressed female saying
she had been kidnapped. That seems to be above and beyond. They are
anticipating for example someone who has a heart attack to use at
defibrillator. We need Rob for this, O'Neill threatens to leave Treasury
over Theresa May, ambivalence to China. He is said to have been a
start signing. Across the country people will be saying, who is the?
But not you. LAUGHTER a few people have heard of you. Makes us glad you
are here. Jim O'Neill was brought in by George Osborne because he seemed
to be an infrastructure with. He's a man who can turn around
infrastructure. This involves going to Beijing, where the money is. They
are helping to build the nuclear power station and other things.
Theresa May has put the brakes on the Hinkley point development. And
that they are now wondering what his job is. It would be a blow to lose
someone with this kind of expertise especially with Brexit happening,
there is the fear they will not be left alone the money but the
capacity to drive forward these projects. It seems as well that
O'Neill was slightly taken by surprise when the government said
they were not going to sign... It seems his particular area of
interest have been Hinkley point and the northern powerhouse that both of
which can safely be said they are not progressing with the gusto
supporters might have hoped. The interesting point for some of us is
that, apparently, it does not want to damage the pitch about the
superbug problems with the G20. He appears to be sucking it up for now
in order to get this pitch across over the next few weeks. Apparently
he wants to know Theresa May would want him to stay. Finally, a couple
of stories about the Rio games which start later in the week. The
beautiful photograph of a lease in a black, one of the British divers --
Alicia Black. Is this the IOC finally doing this job? Some might
argue late in the day but making a decision as to whether Russian
athletes should compete? It might be a different story, it has been the
recurring theme. At every stage you think the IOC has made a reasonably
coherent decision, they go, just kidding! Who knows if they will hold
to it. They had left it to different federation organisations to decide.
Russian track and field athletes are out. To do maybe they have decided
to keep people in. Tennis have decided to keep people in. And now
the ISC may have the authority to keep them out. --I received. They
could be going to the Court of arbitration. On the morning of the
Olympics... We are used to the Olympics having crisis but never up
to this late stage. The ISC expects to make a decision by Friday. --
ioc. Somebody being yanked out of boat before the race? Anything is
possible this summer. Anything, you are right. Finally, in The
Independent,... There you go... Rehearsing for the Opening Ceremony.
It will be extraordinary with all the different flavours of resilient
culture is and that surely cannot we tainted. We have such fond memories.
They will have to hit some heights to match London. Nice to see it and
thank you very much. That is it from us. Coming up, the film review.
