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

:00:20.:00:22.

With me are Renee Kaplan, from the Financial Times

:00:23.:00:26.

and The Telegraph's Assistant Editor and Chief Political

:00:27.:00:28.

We will start with the financial Times which features the court case

:00:29.:00:40.

brought by a human rights group against authorities in France who

:00:41.:00:45.

are banned women from wearing bikinis on beaches. Universities

:00:46.:00:54.

will be targeted in a drive to cut numbers.

:00:55.:01:05.

The express also goes with emigration figures. The metro covers

:01:06.:01:13.

the tragic deaths at Camber Sands where three men died trying to save

:01:14.:01:20.

their two friends who got into difficulty. The Telegraph says the

:01:21.:01:25.

NHS has begun drawing up a list of hospitals to be shot in an attempt

:01:26.:01:30.

to ease the worst financial crisis in its history. That's also the top

:01:31.:01:35.

story in the Guardian. It says the NHS in England could be facing a ?20

:01:36.:01:44.

billion shortfall. It is great to campaign by the Daily Mail against

:01:45.:01:50.

micro beads. It says they are found in a third of fish found off the

:01:51.:01:56.

coast of Britain. The Mirror claims a British boy is one of the 250

:01:57.:02:01.

people killed in the devastating earthquake in central id -- central

:02:02.:02:08.

Italy. We will start with the Telegraph tonight. The Telegraph

:02:09.:02:13.

take on migration, one quarter of babies in Britain now are born to

:02:14.:02:21.

foreign mothers. It is a big issue and there are not clearly showed --

:02:22.:02:28.

answers to it. The numbers came out that targets are a double, nearly

:02:29.:02:33.

triple what they should be. Where the cuts will come is left to be

:02:34.:02:37.

seen. It is also a key foreign issue. It is an issue which will

:02:38.:02:47.

have reservations in Brussels I imagine. A political issue as well?

:02:48.:02:53.

It is at the heart of the political story of the year, the Brexit

:02:54.:02:59.

result, emigration was driving that. Three quarters of the children in

:03:00.:03:03.

the country have foreign mums it says fair. 76%. That is a lot. I

:03:04.:03:13.

think emigration is fine for a lot of people but when it is not

:03:14.:03:19.

supported by a GP places, hospitals, school places. Then it feels

:03:20.:03:26.

uncontrolled which is what drove a lot of people to vote for Brexit. It

:03:27.:03:31.

shows that the Prime Minister, back from a holiday has a lot to do. How

:03:32.:03:38.

will she cope and get something which is acceptable to Britain and

:03:39.:03:45.

Europe. That will be tough. The same sort of policy with this paper.

:03:46.:03:50.

Emigration and students. The same story in a different way. Amongst

:03:51.:03:57.

the government, how do you go for the students after they stop being

:03:58.:04:03.

students? The battle they have with universities is that they need more

:04:04.:04:10.

students to keep the fees down. How can you make bringing in foreign

:04:11.:04:15.

students when there is out of control emigration figures? If the

:04:16.:04:19.

numbers of foreign students are cut severely, the colleges will be in

:04:20.:04:25.

trouble. Obviously she needs to find numbers to cut. The numbers are

:04:26.:04:30.

complicated today for herself and her party but it is a real issue of

:04:31.:04:37.

finances. Education is a prestige industry in the UK and has to be

:04:38.:04:42.

financed so it will be very odd to say her matchless. We will have to

:04:43.:04:49.

wait and say what is in the inside pages. -- match this. The Guardian

:04:50.:04:56.

says that as a plan to cut the NHS because it says that as a funding

:04:57.:05:01.

shortfall of ?20 billion. We have talked about one hot topic amongst

:05:02.:05:07.

politicians and this is another one. This is a single thing people and

:05:08.:05:11.

was proud of in Britain, our free health service. The problem with

:05:12.:05:15.

emigration and people living longer, it costs more to keep it going. The

:05:16.:05:20.

Tories promise to keep it going at the last election. Now the Guardian

:05:21.:05:30.

have a good story where they have discovered evidence that further

:05:31.:05:32.

cuts are planned to make sure the whole thing does not keel over. One

:05:33.:05:38.

of the other papers touches on this story so there seems to be a kernel

:05:39.:05:44.

of the story in the they are teasing out. It is obviously an ongoing

:05:45.:05:48.

story in many countries in Europe, the viability of public health

:05:49.:05:55.

systems are at the heart of many politics. There is a high quality in

:05:56.:06:03.

the UK but it is much more severe because of their perception of

:06:04.:06:11.

emigration sapping its. There are Bulgarians and Romanians but also

:06:12.:06:15.

Spanish and Italian is so how to balance the cuts with the politics

:06:16.:06:22.

of managing it? Within the disparity there is a problem about the

:06:23.:06:28.

numbers. Perhaps the NHS is always the vote winner or the vote loser?

:06:29.:06:36.

Quite. With regard to how do government is going to manage this

:06:37.:06:42.

shortfall, cutting help to departments which is suggested he,

:06:43.:06:48.

in certain regions that will be extremely explosive? It will be

:06:49.:06:52.

explosive and it is not just shutting down one hospital, there is

:06:53.:07:01.

also the discussion of instead of having things face-to-face having

:07:02.:07:06.

virtual consultations. Patients taking care of themselves without a

:07:07.:07:10.

doctor. It will change the whole sense of what health care is. That

:07:11.:07:15.

will come down to the notion of what am I paying for as a tax payer? A

:07:16.:07:21.

long quote from the spokesperson said it is hardly a secret the NHS

:07:22.:07:28.

is looking to make efficiencies and the PS3 for that is in consultation

:07:29.:07:35.

with local communities. The word consultation will be closely looked

:07:36.:07:41.

at. All so in local communities getting older people out of hospital

:07:42.:07:47.

beds to save the space, that consultation is vital. Let us move

:07:48.:07:53.

on to the Metro and the story of the five young men, lifelong friends,

:07:54.:07:58.

who drowned at Camber Sands. They were enjoying a game of football on

:07:59.:08:03.

the sandbank when the tide rushed in. It is a terribly tragic story,

:08:04.:08:09.

lots of questions being asked about lifeguards now. It is a terrible

:08:10.:08:18.

summer tragedy story. Every summer has its tragedies, this is one in

:08:19.:08:23.

which it is very difficult to react because happened not so long ago, in

:08:24.:08:28.

the last two weeks someone else died at the speech. This was complicated

:08:29.:08:33.

because it was five very young men doing what everyone would do on the

:08:34.:08:41.

hottest day of the summer. It is a tough one to react to. These are

:08:42.:08:46.

five young men, from Greenwich or east London, not used to the coast.

:08:47.:08:56.

They need more than they have at the moment to educate people about the

:08:57.:09:01.

riptides. Let us move back to the Telegraph. We are talking about the

:09:02.:09:09.

GCSE results, close to home for you Chris. There is a story that grammar

:09:10.:09:17.

schools are bucking the trend of falling GCSE grades. Yes, another

:09:18.:09:22.

hot button issue, the future of grammar schools. The Telegraph is

:09:23.:09:29.

pushing hard on this because the Tories believe now that is a chance

:09:30.:09:34.

to lift the ban on new grammar is supported by Tony Blair and carried

:09:35.:09:40.

on by David Cameron. The fact that Labour are almost being ignored by

:09:41.:09:48.

the Tories. Part of that is bringing back the selective education

:09:49.:09:52.

schools. The Prime Minister has already signalled she is quite keen

:09:53.:09:58.

on this. Are you surprised by this or not concerned? As you can hear by

:09:59.:10:06.

my accent, I am American. The headlines today were more about the

:10:07.:10:12.

fact that the grades are lower. From an outside perspective, it speaks to

:10:13.:10:17.

one of the rigidities of the UK educational system which is quite

:10:18.:10:22.

hard to understand when young kids are forced to make choices about

:10:23.:10:28.

their life I head. The UK is seen as a place for opportunity but the

:10:29.:10:33.

educational system is seen as deeply elitist. Opponents would say they

:10:34.:10:40.

are selecting the brightest students in the first place so that is a

:10:41.:10:45.

circular argument. They can lose out that this goes to the heart of the

:10:46.:10:50.

Prime minister's issue of life chances. We should go to the

:10:51.:10:59.

financial Times before we run out of time. You said you were a half

:11:00.:11:08.

French? I am. What about the burst bikini ban? -- burkinis. The band

:11:09.:11:22.

contravenes civil liberties? This is deeply controversial in France and

:11:23.:11:26.

even in London where there was a demonstration in front of the French

:11:27.:11:31.

embassy. France is going through a moment of fear about the control of

:11:32.:11:42.

the large Muslim population. In 2010, Nicolas Sarkozy passed a ban

:11:43.:11:50.

about the field. There was the ban about their headscarves in public

:11:51.:11:53.

schools. This is not the first time France has done this but the first

:11:54.:11:58.

time where there is such a context about so much terror and deeply

:11:59.:12:03.

wounding clearly radicalised driven violence. It has become an issue in

:12:04.:12:08.

which it will be hard for the public to come out in any way except and

:12:09.:12:17.

nationalist way to protect the French identity. Those pictures of

:12:18.:12:22.

armed guards standing of a lady demanding she take off clothing,

:12:23.:12:27.

will that do more damage or will some people in France think that is

:12:28.:12:34.

OK? I think more damage because it shows France does not have a plan.

:12:35.:12:39.

They do not how to deal with growing Islamophobia. There is a perception

:12:40.:12:45.

of impotence from the government. For us in the UK, a very different

:12:46.:12:52.

style of doing it. There is some fun on this in the Telegraph. I presume

:12:53.:13:02.

this is a man, socks and sandals with our policeman standing over him

:13:03.:13:07.

telling him to take of the stalks. There is a concern about face

:13:08.:13:14.

covering but only the fees, nothing else. We in Britain look at France

:13:15.:13:21.

saying why are you having this debate squirm -- debate?. We just

:13:22.:13:30.

have time to do something about Nigel Farage in the express. He has

:13:31.:13:38.

spoken about -- at our Donald Trump rally. He was critical of President

:13:39.:13:46.

Obama during the EU Referendum campaign and now, he has said he

:13:47.:13:50.

would never vote for Hillary Clinton. If she paid me! What do you

:13:51.:14:04.

think of him going over their? Review there is harnessing grass

:14:05.:14:09.

roots support. He thinks Donald Trump will overturn the

:14:10.:14:14.

establishment elite. Why not? He is careful not to endorse any single

:14:15.:14:19.

group. It is a good message and it is well played out over there. He is

:14:20.:14:27.

a great orator. I do not know if you heard what he said? To be honest, he

:14:28.:14:32.

was preaching to the choir with the idea you can come from behind and

:14:33.:14:39.

defeat the polls. According to the polls, Donald Trump will now be

:14:40.:14:45.

elected. In a sense which our campaign has not been about facts,

:14:46.:14:50.

there is a sense that he was literally giving him the Kool-Aid as

:14:51.:14:54.

they would say in the states. Thank you both very much indeed.
