Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are the writer and broadcaster, Natalie Haynes

:00:19.:00:21.

and the Westminster Correspondent for South West News Service,

:00:22.:00:23.

The FT says Santander is to halve the interest rate on one

:00:24.:00:30.

of its current accounts in a move expected to be followed

:00:31.:00:32.

The Metro shows a picture of the former Aston Villa

:00:33.:00:41.

footballer Dalian Atkinson, who died after being tasered

:00:42.:00:43.

An investigation's been launched by the police watchdog.

:00:44.:00:47.

The Telegraph says the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt will name

:00:48.:00:50.

and shame parts of England which are failing dementia

:00:51.:00:52.

sufferers, in what's been called a "postcode lottery" of care.

:00:53.:00:58.

The Mail also has that story, saying some elderly sufferers can go

:00:59.:01:01.

a year without their needs being assessed.

:01:02.:01:06.

The Guardian looks at a report about the economic effect of Brexit,

:01:07.:01:09.

which says any pay boost workers receive because of a fall

:01:10.:01:11.

in immigration would be overshadowed by a faltering economy.

:01:12.:01:14.

The main picture shows Charlotte Dujardin wiping away

:01:15.:01:16.

a tear after winning another gold for Team GB in the

:01:17.:01:18.

And the Times reports on Boris Johnson's political

:01:19.:01:27.

rehabilitation after he was put in charge of the country

:01:28.:01:30.

while Theresa May continues her summer holidays.

:01:31.:01:46.

We start with The Times. News of more GB success. A fetching

:01:47.:01:54.

photograph. Doesn't she seemed delightful and so very happy? I feel

:01:55.:01:58.

bad because I have on occasion in the past marked dressage as being

:01:59.:02:03.

intrinsically a bit silly on account of it being a horse dancing too, at

:02:04.:02:10.

one point this afternoon, cut Queen. Who saw that coming? She knew what

:02:11.:02:15.

she had to do, get music that fitted the occasion, and she got super high

:02:16.:02:23.

marks for her artistic... I am smirking even as I say it. She has

:02:24.:02:28.

done brilliantly. The fact I think horses dancing is a bit silly is

:02:29.:02:32.

rude and terrible and I apologise. Hooray for her. Do I have a medal?

:02:33.:02:40.

Who is the real winner, she is. I have watched more than my fair share

:02:41.:02:45.

of the Olympics so it seems a bit unfair that we are celebrating a

:02:46.:02:50.

sport I known nothing about and have never watched. I gather it involves

:02:51.:02:56.

the horse dancing so does the horrors get the medal? It gets the

:02:57.:03:03.

rosette. The horse gets lots of acclaim from the rider. And sugar

:03:04.:03:12.

lumps. It sounds snarky but I saw an interview and she said she was going

:03:13.:03:18.

to give them some sugar. Dressage it's no attention between the

:03:19.:03:28.

Olympics so I suppose it is great. They go sideways and it looks

:03:29.:03:33.

difficult, and diagonal, and it looks difficult. And the thing with

:03:34.:03:37.

the... She did brilliantly. Hooray for her. Are you captivated by the

:03:38.:03:45.

wider success of Team GB? I am just captivated by the Olympics. I don't

:03:46.:03:51.

get so wrapped up as we are Britain is in the medals table. I would

:03:52.:03:56.

rather see more focus on what is good or not good about the Olympic

:03:57.:04:02.

's as a whole. We are obviously amazed by everyone's success. I have

:04:03.:04:09.

been up all night watching, last night you seen Bolt, the night

:04:10.:04:16.

before Mo Farah. This morning when I went running I was almost half as

:04:17.:04:22.

fast as Mo Farah. He does it all the time so in terms of hours of

:04:23.:04:30.

training in terms of several minutes, I am batting quite high.

:04:31.:04:35.

Take us to The Guardian and the Sports Direct story. ?1 million for

:04:36.:04:46.

staff. People met... Might remember The Guardian's story about this.

:04:47.:04:54.

This seems to be the power of the press and the power of MPs because

:04:55.:05:00.

Mike Ashley was hauled in by a committee of a hard time and was

:05:01.:05:06.

forced to admit that his company was underpaying its staff or some of

:05:07.:05:15.

them. Now we learn that payments will be backdated to 2012 and some

:05:16.:05:21.

people could receive up to ?1000 for the money they should have been

:05:22.:05:30.

paid. Back pay of around ?1 million. Divided between 200 direct

:05:31.:05:37.

unpleasant 3000 temp agency staff. It gives you an idea of how they

:05:38.:05:47.

fill the warehouse. The downside as always is that so far one of the

:05:48.:06:02.

agencies, 1700 will not be paid back pay for the four that agency to

:06:03.:06:12.

cover. -- took over. It would be nice to think that it is not the

:06:13.:06:20.

only offender breaking the law. Perhaps this kind of story will have

:06:21.:06:24.

an effect and persuade rogue employers to think twice. The front

:06:25.:06:29.

of The Telegraph, I think it is in the mail also. The scandal of

:06:30.:06:43.

dementia care. It can truly surprise anybody because standards of medical

:06:44.:06:49.

care is one of those awkward things, we all agree we would like things to

:06:50.:06:53.

be done locally and NHS shouldn't be one big monolith with no local

:06:54.:06:59.

accountability but if you do things locally some places will be better

:07:00.:07:03.

than others and so some of the measures for example about living

:07:04.:07:06.

well and dying well, being treated in your home, having your needs

:07:07.:07:10.

assessed rather than treated in hospital, you seem to have a better

:07:11.:07:18.

time if you have dementia in Devon and Cornwall, Cumbria and East

:07:19.:07:24.

Anglia and a worse time if you are in Tower Hamlets, Hounslow or new. I

:07:25.:07:32.

would be loath to suggest that those places are not trying. I would

:07:33.:07:39.

suggest having a high quantity of residents in considerable poverty

:07:40.:07:41.

and probably a lot of those people living in flats which will not be

:07:42.:07:45.

suitable for people who have dementia, will be in small places

:07:46.:07:50.

you can't easily get care workers into or adapt, it means you'll end

:07:51.:07:53.

up with more people in hospital. I would not say it is as easy as

:07:54.:07:59.

shaking finger in judgment and telling them to try harder. The

:08:00.:08:05.

politics is going back to what you said a moment ago, if you are down

:08:06.:08:09.

towards the end, the wrong end of this table, there should be,

:08:10.:08:14.

politicians would argue, an incentive to try to reach the other

:08:15.:08:19.

end of the table but it is not as simple as that. It is the aim of

:08:20.:08:24.

naming and shaming exercises that people will be dragged up. Better

:08:25.:08:28.

dementia care was a big crusade for the previous Prime Minister so this

:08:29.:08:37.

appears to be continuing under his successor. Some of the criticism was

:08:38.:08:53.

that there was not the treatment to enable people's lives to be improved

:08:54.:09:00.

once they had been identified. Perhaps this is trying to take the

:09:01.:09:04.

dementia crusade a stage further by having these other measures and

:09:05.:09:07.

categories which focus more on the treatment they are receiving rather

:09:08.:09:12.

than simply being identified. But try to squeeze three more in. A sad

:09:13.:09:20.

story in the Metro regarding the former Premier League footballer.

:09:21.:09:25.

And enormous shock for people like me who remember Atkinson. He was a

:09:26.:09:33.

big, powerful guy. He couldn't be defeated. Shocking when someone like

:09:34.:09:44.

that is killed after being Taser at. Controversial circumstances will be

:09:45.:09:50.

investigated. I think the controversy surrounding Taser 's had

:09:51.:09:58.

gone away a bit but... And there had been very few deaths and they have

:09:59.:10:04.

become part of what the police do and it is hard to imagine that as

:10:05.:10:14.

going to change. In the coming days as more mergers and we get something

:10:15.:10:21.

from IPCC, a clearer picture. The questions which will have to be

:10:22.:10:24.

asked are about people who already have health conditions being hit

:10:25.:10:31.

with a Taser. The Times suggests that he really had kidney and heart

:10:32.:10:36.

conditions and that may be a problem that we are not addressing that not

:10:37.:10:39.

everybody who the police are going to shoot a Taser at Scone to be in

:10:40.:10:47.

peak health and these things tend to be practised with other officers who

:10:48.:10:53.

are good to be relatively healthy. I am going to end with the political

:10:54.:10:57.

rehabilitation of the former Mayor of London and now Foreign Secretary.

:10:58.:11:01.

Would-be Prime Minister once perhaps. Or as Johnson, years now in

:11:02.:11:10.

charge of the country? Milk might have gone sour in my fridge. Let's

:11:11.:11:15.

hope nothing terrible happens in the next week. The thought that someone

:11:16.:11:20.

who can barely dress themselves is in charge of the country makes me

:11:21.:11:23.

feel a little bit like crying. Switzerland is not that far away.

:11:24.:11:33.

Theresa May can get back in a hurry and somebody can perhaps put him in

:11:34.:11:38.

a maze or something. There was a flurry of delight when we learned

:11:39.:11:41.

that Boris Johnson was a senior minister in charge. The

:11:42.:11:46.

disappointing thing was that the word we got back was he had no plans

:11:47.:11:52.

for anything significant to happen this week. He had plans not to get

:11:53.:12:08.

caught on as a wire over London. I don't think we will see too much of

:12:09.:12:11.

him over the next couple of days. I am struck by the court from The

:12:12.:12:17.

Times from a spokesman from Number Ten, the Prime Minister is very much

:12:18.:12:23.

in charge and is constantly kept abreast of what is going on in

:12:24.:12:28.

Switzerland. That is it for the papers this hour. Thank you to our

:12:29.:12:30.

guests. Next it is the weather. We have seen some lovely sunsets out

:12:31.:12:51.

there to finish today in which we saw blue skies from the

:12:52.:12:53.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
