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

:00:17.:00:19.

With me are the broadcaster Lynn Faulds Wood and

:00:20.:00:22.

Welcome to both of you. A look at the front pages first, an we

:00:23.:00:30.

Saturday with the Metro which has Mel and Sue on their front-page as

:00:31.:00:36.

the pair announce their departure from the great brick babe off. The

:00:37.:00:42.

FT says plans are being drawn up by GCHQ to create a great British

:00:43.:00:47.

firewall to come pat cyber attacks. The eye looks at what it calls David

:00:48.:00:52.

Cameron's toxic legacy in Libya. The Telegraph leads with the decision by

:00:53.:00:56.

the chairman of the BBC to step down as the head of the corporation's

:00:57.:01:00.

governing body. The Express says that MPs won't be

:01:01.:01:04.

allowing to block the UK's exist from the EU. The times is with that

:01:05.:01:10.

influential committee of MPs that will blame David Cameron for the

:01:11.:01:16.

rise of so-called Islamic State. And The Mail says the foreign aid budget

:01:17.:01:20.

is to be overhauled. Let us look at some of those. Let us start with The

:01:21.:01:25.

Times story. Cameron being blamed for the Rice of IS. This is an

:01:26.:01:30.

inquiry into the inquiry into events in Libya. It sounds harsh to point

:01:31.:01:35.

the finger at David Cameron, he just stepped down as an MP but he is

:01:36.:01:41.

being accused of one of the biggest political and military boobs in

:01:42.:01:45.

recent history, save for Iraq, lots of the criticism appears to be the

:01:46.:01:48.

same. There is some intelligence, you rushed in and made it worse, so

:01:49.:01:54.

says the Foreign Affairs Select Committee. It is a 49 page report.

:01:55.:02:00.

It has taken time to cobble it together. I can do that in about an

:02:01.:02:07.

hour now. Ever Every bullet point said he it has failed to do this and

:02:08.:02:11.

that, they dashed in too quickly, for example one of the critics is

:02:12.:02:17.

the chief of the defence staff, general Lord Richards who at the

:02:18.:02:22.

time disassociated himself from it. For you Chief of Staff, defence

:02:23.:02:26.

staff to say don't do this back in 2011, that is damning in itself.

:02:27.:02:33.

Then he failed to identify that there were Islamist extremists among

:02:34.:02:37.

the rebels we were supporting. We all know there are, I mean it is the

:02:38.:02:43.

same we can look at Syria, a lot of the anti-Assad groups are of the

:02:44.:02:47.

extremist persuasion. One of the points here, and it does make

:02:48.:02:51.

reference to this, in The Times piece, he allowed an operation

:02:52.:02:57.

designed to protect civilians and the original incentive was events in

:02:58.:03:00.

Benghazi when he as Nicolas Sarkozy identified there might be a

:03:01.:03:03.

significant attack on a lot of people if they didn't do something

:03:04.:03:06.

but it is what they didn't plan for afterwards. And they overstated the

:03:07.:03:11.

dangers at the time as well according to this. This is really a

:03:12.:03:17.

very damning report the reason it is open season on Cameron is because he

:03:18.:03:22.

was in charge at the time. You would always say that. We said it about

:03:23.:03:26.

Blair. That was the other point the Select Committee made, they said

:03:27.:03:32.

they should have exploited Tony Blair's friendship with Colonel

:03:33.:03:37.

Gaddafi. Tony Blair is probably thinking fantastic, shush about the

:03:38.:03:40.

dictators now. He probably tried his best to cool tensions. Do you think

:03:41.:03:45.

he knew a report as damning as this was coming out and that is one of

:03:46.:03:50.

the reasons he went so quickly. No, at the end of the day for someone

:03:51.:03:54.

like David Cameron, 74,000 as an MPs wage would be nice for many of us,

:03:55.:04:00.

for David Cameron... You are a cynic. Cynic. I I have seen them

:04:01.:04:05.

work. Let us see if cynicism continues with regards to the Metro.

:04:06.:04:10.

Going going scone. I can't imagine what that is about! Love the

:04:11.:04:15.

headline. This is every small child's favourite goalkeeper. What

:04:16.:04:18.

is the fastest cake in the world? Scone. Are you saying tabloid

:04:19.:04:24.

journalists are like children? No, there is a similar appeal. What is

:04:25.:04:29.

full of a, I love the fun people are having with this, apart from Mel and

:04:30.:04:35.

Sue who have both quit. And Bake Off crumbles as Mel and Sue quit on the

:04:36.:04:40.

Met toe, they, they are saying we are not going to go to Channel 4. I

:04:41.:04:46.

saw earlier on on this very channel that Michael Grade who was programme

:04:47.:04:51.

controller was saying that this is a disastrous thing for Channel 4 to

:04:52.:04:56.

have done. Is it really, the BBC is damned if it does, damned if it

:04:57.:05:00.

doesn't. My Twitter feed will be filled with people you are on the

:05:01.:05:05.

BBC, talking a the BBC. But the reason the BBC, this is my view are

:05:06.:05:10.

damned is because ?75 million is a lot of money, constantly criticised

:05:11.:05:14.

for spending license fee payers money, now the BBC are going to be

:05:15.:05:19.

criticised for not spending enough, how do you win that? Because it was

:05:20.:05:25.

the top problem and people loved it. You are talking to a rt rower who

:05:26.:05:30.

has been axed from places myself, people don't love us as much as we

:05:31.:05:35.

think they do. They will cook scones on Channel 4, how does the license

:05:36.:05:38.

payer miss out? They don't, they switch the channel and the BBC has

:05:39.:05:41.

an excellent opportunity to do something that work, maybe Top Gear.

:05:42.:05:45.

I don't work for the BBC now, a long time I did, Watchdog and so on, we

:05:46.:05:49.

are both independent spirits now. You can't influence this? I

:05:50.:05:53.

unfortunately I can't. We could pitch to the BBC bosses, the idea we

:05:54.:05:58.

can make omelettes. It was a beautifully produced show, and I

:05:59.:06:02.

think the BBC developed it into the stunning success it became. The

:06:03.:06:06.

biggest show. 15 million watching the final is incredible. And will it

:06:07.:06:10.

do as well on Channel 4? I don't know. Let us continue with the BBC

:06:11.:06:14.

briefly because the Daily Telegraph leads with the fact that Theresa May

:06:15.:06:19.

as they say, forces the BBC Trust chief to step down, think this is

:06:20.:06:23.

Rhona fair head, who has been head of the BBC Trust and will not carry

:06:24.:06:28.

on in the role when this body changes. This was David Cameron

:06:29.:06:32.

again, they were having a go at. He said to her, you can stay on, as

:06:33.:06:37.

long as you like and Theresa May has come in and said no, I want it done

:06:38.:06:40.

differently, we will have a different system and we will have a

:06:41.:06:45.

different governing body, it will be a powerful new governing board,

:06:46.:06:53.

although feel when I worked for the BBC we had powerful governing boards

:06:54.:06:58.

coming along like buses, I don't know whether someone has fallen out

:06:59.:07:04.

with Rhona. She probably sees something like how do you solve a

:07:05.:07:10.

problem like Teresa. She is pointing the finger a bit at David Cameron.

:07:11.:07:13.

She wants to show that things have changed. Distance. Shaun, there is

:07:14.:07:20.

another story I know both of you have had a look at. Mother less

:07:21.:07:26.

babies on the way, created from skin cells after scientists discovered a

:07:27.:07:31.

method of creating offspring without the need for a female egg. We need

:07:32.:07:36.

women in society to keep us men under control. There have been

:07:37.:07:41.

experimented on mice where there have been generations I think three

:07:42.:07:47.

generations, of mice created. I am a woman helping you with this. ?

:07:48.:07:52.

Listen, how would we ever be right? It is the idea of fertilising any

:07:53.:07:59.

part of the skin in place of female eggs, now, what could possibly go

:08:00.:08:03.

wrong? Well, for years we have been telling you guys that you are

:08:04.:08:07.

redundant, we don't need men, I think this is revenge where men are

:08:08.:08:14.

saying we don't need you. It has very little to go on, you made the

:08:15.:08:17.

point to me earlier about how these stories pop up, because people are

:08:18.:08:22.

looking for funding. Maybe, we don't know the circumstance, but the one

:08:23.:08:27.

that irtraits me... I was going to say cure for blindness and cancer, I

:08:28.:08:31.

remember working at another place, and it was the cancer conference in

:08:32.:08:36.

the State, I did six cancer stories in one week where people were

:08:37.:08:41.

talking about different cures, some of it was clever, but to a degree

:08:42.:08:45.

these guys sometimes want a bit more money to fund it. Did any of it

:08:46.:08:50.

happen? Look, I am not an oncologist. I ran the European

:08:51.:08:57.

cancer patient after I had bowel cancer, and if I had a pound for

:08:58.:09:01.

every breakthrough ever in cancer I wouldn't be sitting here, I would be

:09:02.:09:06.

off on a round-the-world trip. We will squeeze two more in the we can.

:09:07.:09:10.

The Financial Times is where we are taking them from. GCHQ plans a great

:09:11.:09:19.

big firewall. Let me at this one. It is as transparent adds glass window

:09:20.:09:25.

that has been polished. It is GC. Q, they do amazing work and they keep

:09:26.:09:30.

us safe, I am a huge fan of them. However in this instance there is

:09:31.:09:34.

the notion of putting a Chinese-style filter on our internet

:09:35.:09:37.

traffic. Of course, I am not doubting there is truth to the angle

:09:38.:09:45.

that is being spun here, the idea it stops malware getting to people's

:09:46.:09:51.

computers. By the same token, it also gets rid of as they call

:09:52.:09:55.

offensive content. This is censorship to the extreme. On that,

:09:56.:10:03.

and Lynn you might want to come meant on this, people would be be

:10:04.:10:08.

able to opt out. It is very thin on detail and it was only a story in

:10:09.:10:14.

the Financial Times, I think the trouble with this story, for

:10:15.:10:21.

example, there is a chap Kieron Martin the GCHQ Director General, he

:10:22.:10:24.

said we are doing well in Britain, we are doing twice as many finding

:10:25.:10:29.

signer incidents as we did last year. We found 200 a month. There is

:10:30.:10:35.

thousands a month that you are probably missing, because they are

:10:36.:10:40.

so clever, all the hackers there are out there, the ones that have hacked

:10:41.:10:47.

the the games in Rio and hacked our Olympic winners medical records, and

:10:48.:10:52.

found that a lot of them have been taking banned substances with their

:10:53.:10:56.

doctors' permission, the hackers can do anything now, and I am... Is it

:10:57.:11:03.

about hackers? Or people, people who want to have cyber incidents, can do

:11:04.:11:07.

anything. We have a minute left. Let us devote that minute to taxis. In

:11:08.:11:15.

London. Black cabs versus Uber. This is Saddique Khan or Mayer is trying

:11:16.:11:22.

to support black cabs because after all these poor guys and women have

:11:23.:11:26.

spent years doing the knowledge, and know every area of Greater London

:11:27.:11:31.

that is possible to know, and then clever, clever apps come along like

:11:32.:11:38.

uber-which are brilliant and we have so intrigued by them. Cabs come

:11:39.:11:42.

economically but the poor black cabs need support. Uber-are saying they

:11:43.:11:46.

are being discriminated against. I have only had one black cab refuse

:11:47.:11:51.

my guide dog-leg, I must have had 20 uber-drivers. Black cabs feel that

:11:52.:11:56.

uber-drivers are not paying attention to the regulation,

:11:57.:11:59.

uber-say we are for card thinking, join the rest of the world. On that

:12:00.:12:03.

note. I am going home in a black cab. You can go home which ever way.

:12:04.:12:09.

If I am going with uber-I love you guys. That is it for The Papers.
