can Matt Damon reinvigorate Jason Bourne again? All the other top

:00:00.:00:00.

movies in the film review. Welcome to our look ahead of what

:00:00.:00:20.

the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. Rob and Natalie are with

:00:21.:00:30.

me. Quite a few different from the last hour. According to the

:00:31.:00:36.

financial time, Theresa May faces a revolt in the Treasury over China.

:00:37.:00:42.

The heat is on for Sir Philip Green after the collapse of BHS. Bad news

:00:43.:00:51.

for savers in the Daily Express. Warning of a double whammy from

:00:52.:00:57.

rising inflation and a record low interest rates. Donald Trump in

:00:58.:01:04.

trouble for his comments over a Muslim soldier killed in Iraq. A

:01:05.:01:15.

story in the eye, 24 honours for the former Prime Minister 's entourage.

:01:16.:01:28.

It also leaves the Daily Mail. All -- we will start with the honours.

:01:29.:01:37.

Two of the women who are going to be honoured - aid who put George

:01:38.:01:43.

Osborne on a diet and a fashion stylist. How surprised would anybody

:01:44.:01:53.

be that the Bremain campaign are getting honoured when that is

:01:54.:01:59.

exactly what the Prime Minister campaign for? It is curious, it is

:02:00.:02:06.

odd to be annoyed by somebody who ostensibly fought on the same team

:02:07.:02:11.

as the Prime Minister even if they then lost would be in the top of his

:02:12.:02:18.

list to thank. It does not seem shocking to be rewarding loyalty of

:02:19.:02:27.

purpose, if not loyalty of person. They chose pictures of two people do

:02:28.:02:33.

not fit into that category. Stylist and an aide. Wet and haircut. This

:02:34.:02:47.

is a style haircut. And at the Halep pose when he stood idly... LAUGHTER

:02:48.:02:54.

Isn't it funny how you forget so quickly. Or you blank it out!

:02:55.:03:03.

Politics has just kept going this year. On and on. A scoop by the

:03:04.:03:11.

Sunday Times this morning to have this list which presumably was

:03:12.:03:19.

handed over by somebody. It has run on into day two. I do not know much

:03:20.:03:30.

about the fashion designer. But the transformation of George Osborne's

:03:31.:03:40.

image did not do him much good. Earning about 100,000 pounds was

:03:41.:03:46.

clearly not enough and she is about to get an OBE. Clearly a lot of

:03:47.:03:50.

people do not think her achievements merit that. The remaining campaign

:03:51.:03:57.

is accused of telling many exaggerations. -- remain campaign.

:03:58.:04:11.

The Daily Telegraph, Tories in honours list revolt. Cameron accused

:04:12.:04:20.

of devaluing the least. You wonder why anybody would ever there to do

:04:21.:04:28.

this on the X it from number ten. -- except. There are bound to be names

:04:29.:04:35.

people would disagree with. It is very strange. Probably most people,

:04:36.:04:44.

even people who were not fans of the monarchic system, like me, kind of

:04:45.:04:50.

get the idea of giving praise to those who have done hard work,

:04:51.:04:56.

particularly for charities but I seem to remember the same kind of

:04:57.:05:00.

grumpiness when we got an honours list after the Olympics. People

:05:01.:05:07.

saying, they already won an Olympic medal, do they also need a gong?

:05:08.:05:13.

Just turning up and doing your job and getting the gong, you are sort

:05:14.:05:21.

of devaluing the system. People giving hundreds of hours to charity,

:05:22.:05:30.

and instead there is someone who creates a diet on gives on

:05:31.:05:38.

haircut... The last two prime ministers chose not to have

:05:39.:05:42.

resignation honours. Tony Blair had an investigation and that stopped

:05:43.:05:48.

him from doing it. John Major was the last by Minister to do this. Of

:05:49.:05:56.

course, this is only the start of this sort of unhappiness. David

:05:57.:06:09.

Cameron's honours on departure... In the Times, lives at risk as firemen

:06:10.:06:15.

standing in full paramedics on a lot of occasions? It is an interesting

:06:16.:06:23.

and important story. Many viewers may be quite either. If you or a

:06:24.:06:29.

friend or family has a serious injury, a heart attack, they struck,

:06:30.:06:34.

you expect to be rescued by a paramedic but many players services

:06:35.:06:42.

are on correspondent duties. 4000 times a month you occurs. --

:06:43.:06:52.

respondents. And there are people thinking they ask to do things

:06:53.:06:59.

beyond their capability. A number of instances where people were having

:07:00.:07:07.

heart attacks and they did not have the medical knowledge of treating

:07:08.:07:14.

these. Why it is not sending paramedics? The short answer is

:07:15.:07:21.

there is a shortage of paramedics. People say, it is not that hard, is

:07:22.:07:31.

it? To be a paramedic. I mean, what could possibly be difficult about

:07:32.:07:37.

what paramedic does and the answer is almost everything. 4000 cases in

:07:38.:07:45.

a month, it is nearly 50,000 per year, to give that number its full

:07:46.:07:52.

kind of impact. Across the whole country. Across the whole country

:07:53.:07:58.

and I am sure the fire people who turn up are extremely, more than

:07:59.:08:05.

extremely competent and they are terrific but the cases they are

:08:06.:08:11.

being sent to could be catastrophic. Strokes, mental health issues,

:08:12.:08:19.

broken hips, drug overdoses, and in one case a distressed female saying

:08:20.:08:25.

she had been kidnapped. That seems to be above and beyond. They are

:08:26.:08:38.

anticipating for example someone who has a heart attack to use at

:08:39.:08:48.

defibrillator. We need Rob for this, O'Neill threatens to leave Treasury

:08:49.:08:56.

over Theresa May, ambivalence to China. He is said to have been a

:08:57.:09:02.

start signing. Across the country people will be saying, who is the?

:09:03.:09:11.

But not you. LAUGHTER a few people have heard of you. Makes us glad you

:09:12.:09:19.

are here. Jim O'Neill was brought in by George Osborne because he seemed

:09:20.:09:23.

to be an infrastructure with. He's a man who can turn around

:09:24.:09:32.

infrastructure. This involves going to Beijing, where the money is. They

:09:33.:09:39.

are helping to build the nuclear power station and other things.

:09:40.:09:46.

Theresa May has put the brakes on the Hinkley point development. And

:09:47.:09:53.

that they are now wondering what his job is. It would be a blow to lose

:09:54.:10:02.

someone with this kind of expertise especially with Brexit happening,

:10:03.:10:06.

there is the fear they will not be left alone the money but the

:10:07.:10:12.

capacity to drive forward these projects. It seems as well that

:10:13.:10:22.

O'Neill was slightly taken by surprise when the government said

:10:23.:10:27.

they were not going to sign... It seems his particular area of

:10:28.:10:34.

interest have been Hinkley point and the northern powerhouse that both of

:10:35.:10:39.

which can safely be said they are not progressing with the gusto

:10:40.:10:45.

supporters might have hoped. The interesting point for some of us is

:10:46.:10:51.

that, apparently, it does not want to damage the pitch about the

:10:52.:11:02.

superbug problems with the G20. He appears to be sucking it up for now

:11:03.:11:08.

in order to get this pitch across over the next few weeks. Apparently

:11:09.:11:13.

he wants to know Theresa May would want him to stay. Finally, a couple

:11:14.:11:23.

of stories about the Rio games which start later in the week. The

:11:24.:11:27.

beautiful photograph of a lease in a black, one of the British divers --

:11:28.:11:40.

Alicia Black. Is this the IOC finally doing this job? Some might

:11:41.:11:47.

argue late in the day but making a decision as to whether Russian

:11:48.:11:56.

athletes should compete? It might be a different story, it has been the

:11:57.:12:03.

recurring theme. At every stage you think the IOC has made a reasonably

:12:04.:12:12.

coherent decision, they go, just kidding! Who knows if they will hold

:12:13.:12:19.

to it. They had left it to different federation organisations to decide.

:12:20.:12:25.

Russian track and field athletes are out. To do maybe they have decided

:12:26.:12:32.

to keep people in. Tennis have decided to keep people in. And now

:12:33.:12:39.

the ISC may have the authority to keep them out. --I received. They

:12:40.:12:47.

could be going to the Court of arbitration. On the morning of the

:12:48.:12:56.

Olympics... We are used to the Olympics having crisis but never up

:12:57.:13:04.

to this late stage. The ISC expects to make a decision by Friday. --

:13:05.:13:19.

ioc. Somebody being yanked out of boat before the race? Anything is

:13:20.:13:27.

possible this summer. Anything, you are right. Finally, in The

:13:28.:13:38.

Independent,... There you go... Rehearsing for the Opening Ceremony.

:13:39.:13:44.

It will be extraordinary with all the different flavours of resilient

:13:45.:13:50.

culture is and that surely cannot we tainted. We have such fond memories.

:13:51.:14:02.

They will have to hit some heights to match London. Nice to see it and

:14:03.:14:13.

thank you very much. That is it from us. Coming up, the film review.
