Welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us


tomorrow. The camera is going crazy. I hope you did not get dizzy then.


It is probably excited. Wouldn't you get excited if you were


a camera? The Observer quotes a former Tory


health minister calling for a new tax to fund


the NHS and social care. The Sunday Telegraph says


Theresa May is asking her ministers for their personal


Brexit blueprints. More lives could be lost


on Britain's beaches according to the Sunday Express -


which blames cuts for leaving coast And the Mail on Sunday claims


victory over plans it says are in place to divert tens


of millions of pounds in foreign aid Peter Sutcliffe's fears


over being transferred from Broadmoor Hospital


into a prison is the Sunday People's And the Sunday Mirror says


the brother of four time olympic champion Mo Farah, faces


being forced to move Shall we begin with the Sunday


Times? Pictures of Theresa May watching the cricket. Having a cup


of tea. No doubt thinking about how she would unify a cabinet in some


way to allow exit to happen. Yes, she is going to try to do that. It


is a very divided Cabinet. We are now hearing that there are all kinds


of turf wars and agitations within various departments. The ministers


charged with leading the Brexit negotiations are reportedly


displeased with the fact that the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, is now


apparently trying to muscle in on the Brexit negotiations, and he


wants to stay in the EU single market, whereas others of the Brexit


ministers might have other ideas. She has a lot of different opinions


to try to manage and tied together, and she has asked her Cabinet to


come up with good ideas, a sickly. Positive ideas -- basically. There


isn't a blueprint, and they have to come up with one. I think that will


leave a lot of people worried and nervous. It will shock a lot of


people. What the sources talking to newspapers are revealing if it is to


believed is that they are big divisions in Cabinet. The even


greater worry, rather then not having a plan, is not getting a plan


that can be enforced and agreed on. The picture on the front page of


Theresa May, is her Cabinet are sitting across from her, they will


not want to turn up to this meeting without a plan of action for her.


What I want to know is we have noticed she has a cricket brooch,


but what is the picture on the mug? It is intriguing. It looks like a


Teletubby. I can't see the writing underneath the mug, which might


help. If somebody knows, please let us know. Tweet us. I want to know


what is on Theresa May's mug. The Sunday Telegraph leads with a


similar story, Theresa May, the Brexit in force. She made a promise


that she would implement Brexit. Whatever that means. They have all


been summonsed on Wednesday. Brexit all went a bit quiet and we did not


hear much about it, and now it is back. It is back on the agenda.


There was a suggestion in today's, yesterday's Telegraph, that Theresa


May would trigger Article 50 come what may, and there is a ready a


backlash. I see what you did there. That was good. Definitely the whole


exit wing is back on the agenda. I think there is still some


uncertainty as to when and if Article 50 will be triggered, what


will it look like? -- Brexit thing. I don't think we have moved much


further on from June the 23rd when this all happened. With such deep


divisions in the Cabinet over Brexit and other things, do you think the


sources are playing the press? Winding each other up within


Whitehall? But it is not just with Cabinet ministers, there is the


suggestion that the civil service, some members, pro- European, are


trying to thwart the vote as well. You said earlier it would be


fascinating, a situation comedy, to see what is going on. Theresa May


doesn't look too worried as she watches the cricket with a cup of


tea. Let's see what the week has in store ahead. There doesn't seem to


be a timetable. We still have EU leaders discussing among themselves


when Britain should be allowed to exit the European Union. What if we


are just perpetually living and just end up discussing Brexit for years


to come? -- leaving. There are suggestions you -- Europeans are


getting frustrated. I think the key Europeans aren't, like Angela


Merkel. She is very wary of not giving the UK enough time because of


the sort of consequences that would have for the rest of Europe. The


civil service actually are the ones that are the most frustrated about


this. They seem to think we will be negotiating the terms of Brexit for


the next 20 or 30 years because it is so intricate and there is so much


to unpack. But it literally will be decades. The next general election


would be a fairly decent deadline, because it will make it complicated.


If we are still negotiating Brexit. Which party will come up weight they


would introduce exit and make it happen. That is why people have


started to suggest a timetable, a likely timetable, to trigger Article


50 by 2017, and then two years of negotiation, so by 2019, we will go


to an election on the basis of what has been great. That is why that is


starting to be presented -- has been agreed. If a party emerges saying we


will not implement Brexit, it could be... It could go on forever. Talk


us through foreign aid in the Mail on Sunday's long-standing campaign


and the ?12 billion foreign aid Manaus. -- madness. Pretty Patel,


the International Development Secretary, has decided, or she will


divert tens of millions of pounds that currently go to the foreign aid


budget into the war on terror -- Priti Patel. We don't know much more


detail in this piece, but we knew that when she was given the post,


she has not heeding the secret that she is no fan of the foreign aid


budget and how it is spent, in her eyes, somewhat recklessly. This is a


populist tactic, and I think the Mail on Sunday leaders, this will be


music to their is. For me personally, I think it is a sad


thing she has done -- music to their ears. Just to decide to take


billions out of the foreign aid budget because there is this


suggestion that the money goes to despots and is frittered away when


actually you were saying earlier it saves lives and does lots of


bullying things. She is obviously going for the populist vote and it


is making the Mail on Sunday very happy because it has been their


long-standing campaign -- lots of brilliant things. It is 0.7% of the


national GDP. There are other countries that pay more, five other


countries that pay more, mostly Scandinavian like Denmark, Norway


and Sweden. That is exactly where the money goes. 40% of it is


funnelled through the UN. A lot of it goes to African countries and


helps with things like immunisation. Obviously Syria, a big area. South


Saddam, Sierra Leone, Pakistan, where it helps schoolgirls get an


education -- South Sudan. Some of those countries have problems with


corruption, war, and we have had investigation after investigation


revealed that sometimes the money is misspent and misused and not in the


right hand. Sometimes we have problems with corruption as well. We


are not immune from that. Overall, it is safe to say that one of the


richest countries in the world having a commitment to put 0.7% of


its GDP towards international development, foreign aid, is broadly


speaking, a good thing. It is a shame to suddenly turn against that.


And foreign aid goes to refugees as well. A lot of refugees, which David


Cameron said he would increase. I don't know if that is ring-fenced,


but we may get more details as that story emerges. Shall we move on to


the Observer? Speaking of spending. And ending up getting in the right


hands. The UK needs a new tax to save NHS and social care from


collapse. This is from a top conservative politician. He doesn't


know what he is talking about in many ways and is really tapping in


to a big issue for many people. Especially when it comes to social


care. He stepped down from the Department of Health last year but


now works as an MP and part-time doctor, and he sees this every day


-- he does know. Something has to be done about social care and elderly


patients who are in hospitals, and when it is time for them to be


discharged, there is no care plan, nowhere for them to go, so they


remain in hospital, which costs more money. He is suggesting that we


should have a tax via National Insurance to raise more money to


resolve this issue. It is not new. It has been going on for a long


time. But as the population gets older, this problem is increasing.


Rachel, cuts lead to jamming. 12 die in a week -- drowning. The Sunday


Express tapping into what has been a huge story for local papers


especially in East Sussex with people saying they need to be


lifeguards and these areas councils say that is not the case and we


don't need them. It is tragic what is happening, but we don't need to


spend that kind of money. It all ties in, doesn't it? Local


authorities have had cuts imposed upon them. They have then had to


decide where the axe falls. Which exactly of these essential social


and public services are they to scrap? So to me it is no great


surprise to discover that on Britain's coastline, the coastguard


service is something that will get it, and if people are dying as a


consequence, once again, we are seeing the devastating consequences


of such terrible cuts -- hit. It does seem to be a problem across the


country, not just East Sussex. They have been 12 deaths in a week, and


near misses as well. This week has been particularly bad for crystal


depths, and it is no surprise to see an MP, forward to say this is not


good enough and we do need to put money into racecards -- coastal


deaths. There are beaches without coastguards. That is where problems


are likely to happen. We have 30 seconds to squeeze in a bit of


snoring. Do you suffer from snoring? You don't would be tight. Not that


I'm aware of. I wake everybody else other than myself. But since moving


out of the centre of the city, I am sleeping better and storing less,


and that might be because of pollution, or lack of it. Snoring is


the traffic's fault. Do you suffer from intense sleepiness during the


day? Apparently there is a gender divide. Women suffer from sleepiness


and the men to the snoring. This is rubbish. Women are sleepy during the


day because they have been kept awake by the men all night. Thank


you for taking us through the papers. The Film Review is next.
