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

:00:20.:00:24.

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

:00:25.:00:27.

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

:00:28.:00:29.

a camera? The Observer quotes a former Tory

:00:30.:00:37.

health minister calling for a new tax to fund

:00:38.:00:40.

the NHS and social care. The Sunday Telegraph says

:00:41.:00:43.

Theresa May is asking her ministers for their personal

being forced to move Shall we begin with the Sunday

:01:18.:01:31.

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

:01:32.:01:38.

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

:01:39.:01:46.

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

:01:47.:01:53.

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

:01:54.:01:57.

of turf wars and agitations within various departments. The ministers

:01:58.:02:03.

charged with leading the Brexit negotiations are reportedly

:02:04.:02:08.

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

:02:09.:02:12.

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

:02:13.:02:20.

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

:02:21.:02:24.

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

:02:25.:02:28.

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

:02:29.:02:34.

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

:02:35.:02:42.

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

:02:43.:02:45.

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

:02:46.:02:53.

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

:02:54.:02:58.

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

:02:59.:03:02.

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

:03:03.:03:08.

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

:03:09.:03:13.

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

:03:14.:03:17.

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

:03:18.:03:21.

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

:03:22.:03:27.

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

:03:28.:03:37.

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

:03:38.:03:41.

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

:03:42.:03:48.

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

:03:49.:03:53.

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

:03:54.:03:56.

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

:03:57.:04:07.

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

:04:08.:04:11.

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

:04:12.:04:19.

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

:04:20.:04:21.

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

:04:22.:04:26.

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

:04:27.:04:34.

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

:04:35.:04:39.

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

:04:40.:04:45.

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

:04:46.:04:49.

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

:04:50.:04:55.

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

:04:56.:05:00.

sources are playing the press? Winding each other up within

:05:01.:05:06.

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

:05:07.:05:11.

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

:05:12.:05:16.

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

:05:17.:05:23.

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

:05:24.:05:27.

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

:05:28.:05:31.

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

:05:32.:05:36.

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

:05:37.:05:39.

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

:05:40.:05:45.

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

:05:46.:05:50.

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

:05:51.:06:00.

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

:06:01.:06:04.

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

:06:05.:06:08.

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

:06:09.:06:12.

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

:06:13.:06:18.

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

:06:19.:06:21.

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

:06:22.:06:26.

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

:06:27.:06:33.

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

:06:34.:06:40.

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

:06:41.:06:43.

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

:06:44.:06:52.

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

:06:53.:06:58.

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

:06:59.:07:03.

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

:07:04.:07:08.

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

:07:09.:07:17.

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

:07:18.:07:25.

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

:07:26.:07:30.

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

:07:31.:07:37.

the International Development Secretary, has decided, or she will

:07:38.:07:43.

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

:07:44.:07:46.

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

:07:47.:07:51.

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

:07:52.:07:55.

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

:07:56.:08:01.

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

:08:02.:08:07.

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

:08:08.:08:11.

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

:08:12.:08:15.

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

:08:16.:08:21.

billions out of the foreign aid budget because there is this

:08:22.:08:26.

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

:08:27.:08:31.

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

:08:32.:08:36.

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

:08:37.:08:41.

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

:08:42.:08:44.

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

:08:45.:08:52.

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

:08:53.:08:57.

countries that pay more, mostly Scandinavian like Denmark, Norway

:08:58.:09:00.

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

:09:01.:09:06.

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

:09:07.:09:09.

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

:09:10.:09:15.

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

:09:16.:09:24.

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

:09:25.:09:30.

corruption, war, and we have had investigation after investigation

:09:31.:09:33.

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

:09:34.:09:37.

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

:09:38.:09:40.

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

:09:41.:09:47.

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

:09:48.:09:53.

its GDP towards international development, foreign aid, is broadly

:09:54.:09:57.

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

:09:58.:10:02.

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

:10:03.:10:07.

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

:10:08.:10:11.

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

:10:12.:10:17.

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

:10:18.:10:22.

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

:10:23.:10:26.

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

:10:27.:10:32.

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

:10:33.:10:36.

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

:10:37.:10:42.

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

:10:43.:10:46.

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

:10:47.:10:52.

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

:10:53.:10:59.

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

:11:00.:11:03.

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

:11:04.:11:06.

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

:11:07.:11:12.

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

:11:13.:11:19.

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

:11:20.:11:24.

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

:11:25.:11:32.

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

:11:33.:11:38.

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

:11:39.:11:40.

especially in East Sussex with people saying they need to be

:11:41.:11:45.

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

:11:46.:11:49.

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

:11:50.:11:52.

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

:11:53.:11:56.

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

:11:57.:12:03.

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

:12:04.:12:08.

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

:12:09.:12:15.

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

:12:16.:12:19.

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

:12:20.:12:24.

consequence, once again, we are seeing the devastating consequences

:12:25.:12:31.

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

:12:32.:12:34.

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

:12:35.:12:40.

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

:12:41.:12:46.

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

:12:47.:12:50.

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

:12:51.:12:56.

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

:12:57.:13:02.

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

:13:03.:13:05.

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

:13:06.:13:13.

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

:13:14.:13:21.

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

:13:22.:13:23.

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

:13:24.:13:32.

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

:13:33.:13:36.

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

:13:37.:13:42.

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

:13:43.:13:47.

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

:13:48.:13:52.

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