of public service is to expose inequalities in the way that ethnic

:00:00.:00:00.

minorities and white working-class people are treated.

:00:00.:00:12.

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

:00:13.:00:16.

With me are broadcaster Rachel Shabi and journalist Eva Simpson.

:00:17.:00:24.

Good evening to you both. Before we hear from them, let's have a quick

:00:25.:00:31.

look at what the papers are bringing us.

:00:32.:00:33.

The Observer quotes a former Tory health minister calling

:00:34.:00:35.

for a new tax to fund the NHS and social care.

:00:36.:00:38.

The Sunday Times has pictures of Theresa May enjoying

:00:39.:00:49.

The Sunday Telegraph says Theresa May is asking her

:00:50.:00:51.

ministers for their personal Brexit blueprints.

:00:52.:00:52.

More lives could be lost on Britain's beaches according

:00:53.:00:55.

to the Sunday Express - which blames cuts for leaving coast

:00:56.:00:57.

The Mail on Sunday claims victory over plans they say are in place

:00:58.:01:01.

to divert tens of millions of pounds in foreign aid

:01:02.:01:04.

So Brexit is back. The Sunday Times and the Sunday Telegraph, and get to

:01:05.:01:14.

that a moment, pictures the of the reason me enjoying a cup of tea and

:01:15.:01:19.

watching the cricket. It can't be more British than that for a British

:01:20.:01:23.

Prime Minister. What do you think she is thinking of? Probably the

:01:24.:01:31.

cricket photo is to enable the strapline may prepares to umpire

:01:32.:01:36.

Brexit clash and that is very much what this study and others are

:01:37.:01:42.

focused on, which is that there is this almighty tussle with various of

:01:43.:01:48.

her ministers. This story in the Sunday Times is talking about the

:01:49.:01:54.

Chancellor trying to muscle in on Brexit deals, in a way that the

:01:55.:02:02.

other ministers do not particularly welcome. I imagine she is going to

:02:03.:02:07.

have two sort of pull them apart and ask them to focus on the task at

:02:08.:02:12.

hand. The other interesting thing is that all along she said Brexit means

:02:13.:02:17.

Brexit but still no one knows what that means. According to the Sunday

:02:18.:02:21.

Times she has told her Cabinet ministers to come to a meeting with

:02:22.:02:25.

the idea of how to get the best out of Brexit. Who has been quoted?

:02:26.:02:32.

There are no Cabinet ministers who have been quartered. There are

:02:33.:02:37.

reliable sources in this. Has split at the Cabinet supposed to be? Three

:02:38.:02:42.

quarters of them are remain supporters so they must come to this

:02:43.:02:46.

meeting with the plans on how did best go forward with Brexit.

:02:47.:02:50.

Meanwhile there is a turf war going on with people trying to muscle in

:02:51.:02:55.

with other people. Is that what the papers want us to believe? How

:02:56.:03:02.

reliable are the Westminster lobby? The government and they must listen

:03:03.:03:06.

to the people who voted for Brexit, they must see it through. One

:03:07.:03:12.

wonders how divided the Cabinet are. Yes the country voted for Brexit but

:03:13.:03:16.

no one knows what that means so now they must come up with a plan. There

:03:17.:03:21.

is no plan, that is what I'm taking from this piece. She wants everyone

:03:22.:03:25.

to come together. This will be the staff meeting from hell. This will

:03:26.:03:31.

be worried a lot of people at home who voted for Brexit and the people

:03:32.:03:36.

who are in power who are being asked to make it happen and come up with a

:03:37.:03:42.

plan. The Sunday Telegraph describes it as May is the Brexit -- Brexit

:03:43.:03:48.

enforcer. Then makes you wonder how many people when they voted for

:03:49.:03:52.

Brexit realise that there wasn't that much of a plan. People may have

:03:53.:03:58.

thought there was a Pied Piper ultimately things by campaigners but

:03:59.:04:02.

the one thought for one minute that the people reading the Brexit

:04:03.:04:04.

campaign didn't really know how this would manifest itself if indeed we

:04:05.:04:10.

voted to leave the EU. Now we have really lies there is no plan. There

:04:11.:04:16.

are lots of divisions. People said no to the EU but we don't know what

:04:17.:04:23.

kind of know that was. There is disagreement in the Cabinet. Do we

:04:24.:04:28.

stay in the single market? If we do the week at a the controls on

:04:29.:04:34.

migration that we think we can and should control. Or presumably that

:04:35.:04:38.

some people do. It is almost inevitable that there would be these

:04:39.:04:42.

divisions given that we did not know the first place what Brexit would

:04:43.:04:47.

mean. Do you think what the Times and Telegraph are suggesting our big

:04:48.:04:52.

divisions in the Cabinet? Cabinet falling apart over Brexit. Not that

:04:53.:04:59.

they are falling apart but the sense that they all must come up with the

:05:00.:05:02.

strategy. There is no strategy and now they must come up with one. They

:05:03.:05:07.

are all coming at it from different perspectives. Both newspapers

:05:08.:05:13.

highlight the divisions between different departments. There are

:05:14.:05:16.

suggestions that some departments have been briefing negative stories

:05:17.:05:22.

about new departments. See what I mean? Be careful what you read! It

:05:23.:05:30.

is fascinating but I guess the headline is correct. This is why

:05:31.:05:37.

until perhaps we have heard from the horses mouth about divisions in the

:05:38.:05:41.

capital, Debbie takes... I am asking the question, Adi... It will never

:05:42.:05:50.

say, I am cross with Boris because he will not let the muscle in. We

:05:51.:05:55.

know that with the lobby. We will see what happens after Wednesday.

:05:56.:05:59.

Showery moved on to the mild on Sunday? At last MOS victory on

:06:00.:06:08.

foreign aid is the claim. This has been a long-running campaign. It has

:06:09.:06:14.

with the mild on Sunday. They claimed a victory because Priti

:06:15.:06:18.

Patel the new International developer secretary has said that

:06:19.:06:24.

she plans to divert the foreign aid budget to go towards funding the war

:06:25.:06:29.

on terror. There is not much more meat to the silly that we have seen

:06:30.:06:33.

but it is a heartbreaking headline to read. We know that she is not in

:06:34.:06:40.

favour of foreign aid. I think it is a bit of an easy win for her. An

:06:41.:06:45.

easy headline. Quite a populist thing for her to do. For me it is

:06:46.:06:52.

quite a sad thing because as much as we have read headlines with the

:06:53.:06:55.

foreign aid budget funding some despot doing this and it is all

:06:56.:07:02.

going to corrupt regimes, who actually does a lot of good and why

:07:03.:07:08.

should people suffer? It does a lot of good. Pakistan is among the

:07:09.:07:16.

biggest receivers of foreign aid, it is huge, and there is an issue of

:07:17.:07:21.

terrorism there but there's poverty and problems. Refugees. It is

:07:22.:07:27.

difficult to know where the money is going to go. Not really. I think

:07:28.:07:33.

eyebrows and should have raised when Priti Patel was appointed the new

:07:34.:07:39.

international developer secretary. She does not believe in

:07:40.:07:41.

international development because she has decided to scrap it. This is

:07:42.:07:49.

0.7% of Britain's budget. It is going to places like Pakistan and

:07:50.:07:54.

helping to send girls to school in Pakistan and helping with

:07:55.:07:56.

immunisation programmes in Africa and helping Syrian refugees. The

:07:57.:08:01.

bulk of it is funnelled through the UN. You say why should they suffer

:08:02.:08:06.

because some of that money in certain parts of the country ends up

:08:07.:08:09.

in the wrong hands are being misspent? That is just a way of

:08:10.:08:15.

saying, that is a way of avoiding paying it. It would be hard to

:08:16.:08:21.

imagine that most of it is not going to the right place. And the idea

:08:22.:08:30.

that it is an either or scenario. We can't fund counterterrorism and

:08:31.:08:32.

foreign aid as though we need to make that choice, we don't. We also

:08:33.:08:39.

need to find the NHS. Also an ideal logical choice. The Observer UK

:08:40.:08:45.

needs new tax to save NHS and social care from collapse according to top

:08:46.:08:50.

Tory. MP demands action by made to solve cash crisis for NHS. Is this a

:08:51.:09:01.

new tax for the NHS? This is something else for treason these

:09:02.:09:05.

injury. There is a long list of things for her to do. Dan Poulter

:09:06.:09:11.

suggests there should be a tax so that we can safeguard money for

:09:12.:09:15.

social care. It is a long-running issue the idea that elderly people

:09:16.:09:18.

once they go into hospital they stay in hospital because there isn't a

:09:19.:09:21.

social care plan that there is nowhere for them to go so instead of

:09:22.:09:25.

leaving the stay in hospital, which costs them more. He is suggesting

:09:26.:09:29.

that there should be some ring fencing of funds to prevent that

:09:30.:09:35.

happening. Because he said it is urgently required I'd is a crisis.

:09:36.:09:43.

It is good to see this issue raised. He was from the Department of Health

:09:44.:09:46.

but he is also a part-time NHS doctor and this correlation between

:09:47.:09:52.

starving social services, of course if you cut social services to the

:09:53.:09:57.

extent that we have in the UK through austerity that will have an

:09:58.:10:00.

impact on the NHS. Of course it will affect the NHS in a negative way. So

:10:01.:10:07.

to connect those dots I think is a really important things. Obviously

:10:08.:10:13.

we should be seeing, trying to fund the two together because they work

:10:14.:10:19.

so closely in tandem. Not strike to staff one and overburdened the

:10:20.:10:24.

other. The Sunday express, this is not an issue that seems to be going

:10:25.:10:28.

away it has been going for some time. It started in local papers in

:10:29.:10:35.

Sussex and now graces the national papers. Cuts led to drownings, no

:10:36.:10:41.

cash to guard our beaches are still die in one week. There has been a

:10:42.:10:44.

lot of calls from lifeguards to be there but it is quite a quiet beach,

:10:45.:10:49.

but very popular. The local council, I read that they said there is no

:10:50.:10:57.

need for lifeguards. According to this and people in the government,

:10:58.:11:01.

local government for these cuts and he is demanding that something be

:11:02.:11:04.

done about it in the light of all these tragedies over the summer.

:11:05.:11:10.

Other tweet I saw saying, I don't not it is true, but they claim that

:11:11.:11:16.

the local council make between 30 and ?50,000 per year out of the car

:11:17.:11:20.

park on the beach. That could go some way towards putting some

:11:21.:11:22.

lifeguards on the beach to make sure people don't get trapped in the

:11:23.:11:27.

sand. Local authorities are having to decide what to cut, these cuts

:11:28.:11:32.

have been imposed upon the idea must decide which of the local services

:11:33.:11:38.

they can get rid of. It is no grey surprise to discover that we do not

:11:39.:11:45.

have enough coastguards, and that service has been starved of funds

:11:46.:11:49.

given so much about local authorities provide has been. We

:11:50.:11:54.

just have time to squeeze in a story that I really want to about,

:11:55.:12:01.

snoring. Talk It is the traffic's fault. It sleepiness during the day

:12:02.:12:08.

is linked to traffic pollution. I have just moved to the countryside

:12:09.:12:12.

and I definitely stop snoring. I sleep like a baby. Your nostrils get

:12:13.:12:25.

blocked up. Is it a pollution related thing? They discovered that

:12:26.:12:34.

25% of men snort. Added his traffic pollution there is the likelihood

:12:35.:12:36.

that snarling increased with the exposure to traffic. One more thing

:12:37.:12:45.

caused by pollution. Thank you very much for taking us to the papers. We

:12:46.:12:51.

will do it again at 30p.m.. Goodbye. Thank you very much for watching.

:12:52.:12:57.

:12:58.:13:01.
