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

:00:13.:00:15.

With me are the journalist and features writer

:00:16.:00:22.

and the broadcaster Julia Hartley-Brewer.

:00:23.:00:26.

The Times says the Home Secretary is preparing to launch an inquiry

:00:27.:00:33.

into the clashes between miners and police in 1984, which became

:00:34.:00:35.

Thousands of men are undergoing needless treatment for prostate

:00:36.:00:41.

cancer, according to claims reported in the Telegraph.

:00:42.:00:48.

The FT has an image from the Falklands War, marking

:00:49.:00:51.

the new agreement reached between Britain and Argentina

:00:52.:00:53.

The Metro reports on a survey claiming that NHS patients

:00:54.:00:56.

are receiving limited access to drugs and surgery.

:00:57.:01:01.

The Guardian says the BBC has been forced to reveal the salaries

:01:02.:01:04.

of those it pays more than ?150,000 a year.

:01:05.:01:11.

Images of people texting while driving are the Mirror's front

:01:12.:01:13.

page - it calls for the deadly phone epidemic to end.

:01:14.:01:20.

And the Mail has also launched a campaign on the issue,

:01:21.:01:23.

saying a fifth of drivers admit using their phones while driving.

:01:24.:01:32.

So, let us begin. Let us begin with the Guardian. The president of the

:01:33.:01:41.

European Commission condemns attacks on Polish people in the United

:01:42.:01:46.

Kingdom. Was he right to raise this issue? I do not think so. He raised

:01:47.:01:53.

a lot, the EU army, not being raised by the Guardian, interestingly. How

:01:54.:01:55.

they were all prepared for Brexit and the like. He was condemning the

:01:56.:02:00.

attack on to Polish men in Parliament Essex, a horrific attack,

:02:01.:02:04.

no doubt about that. Arrests have been made. But he linked it very

:02:05.:02:09.

much with the Brexit for. There have been incidents which we believe will

:02:10.:02:13.

be related to Brexit, but let's all stop pretending there were no

:02:14.:02:16.

violent attacks and no racism on British streets before June 23. This

:02:17.:02:22.

case is still live. People have been charged with this. The police have

:02:23.:02:26.

been very clear, motive is currently unknown. I think it is outrageous

:02:27.:02:30.

for the European Commission President to pronounce that on the

:02:31.:02:33.

cause of a crime that has not even gone to court. I thought we had

:02:34.:02:38.

injuries for that. I do not think it is outrageous. I think he has struck

:02:39.:02:44.

on something, there, and the latest figures show a 40% rise in hate

:02:45.:02:49.

crimes since the... In reporting of hate crimes. But that is still

:02:50.:02:55.

arise. People have been encouraged to report them. There may have been

:02:56.:02:59.

an increase but people have been encouraged to report them. Their

:03:00.:03:02.

mother has been a rise in reporting them. Maybe it is not his place but

:03:03.:03:06.

I do not think he cares so much about the sensibilities of out what

:03:07.:03:10.

he is saying is received in Britain any more. But he has talked about

:03:11.:03:13.

the galloping populism that has been created by fragmentation and, as a

:03:14.:03:19.

bleeding heart liberal, I do have sympathy with that. I think that

:03:20.:03:24.

there is some sort of sense that anger and frustration has been

:03:25.:03:27.

enfranchised by the Brexit vote and you may think I am over reading it,

:03:28.:03:32.

but I talked to a gay couple the other day who said that they do not

:03:33.:03:35.

walk down the street hand-in-hand since the 24th of June because they

:03:36.:03:39.

are worried. They are friends of mine and I thought that is terrible,

:03:40.:03:47.

that they feel scared that somebody might abuse them in some way.

:03:48.:03:50.

Brexit had nothing to do with race, or certainly not sexuality or

:03:51.:03:52.

anything like that. But it is weird that it has only sold as anger. For

:03:53.:03:56.

me, genuinely, and I am sure people will disagree with me on the remain

:03:57.:04:00.

side, I genuinely believe... If you took all of the issues over are and

:04:01.:04:03.

xenophobia, they were all raised by the remain calm, not leaders. What

:04:04.:04:10.

about Nigel Farage and his poster. I do not think that was about race. If

:04:11.:04:13.

you think that poster was the reason why this was happening... No, but it

:04:14.:04:19.

was emblematic of the message. I think what the president is talking

:04:20.:04:22.

about, this has come about by having, for instance, an open door

:04:23.:04:26.

policy to refugees. It is the political classes ignoring ordinary

:04:27.:04:29.

people's concerns over issues like immigration, nothing to do with

:04:30.:04:34.

race, immigration for the other largely wet countries, it is that

:04:35.:04:38.

that has created this problem, not anything else. -- largely white

:04:39.:04:42.

countries. James, as a bleeding heart liberal... Gives me more! The

:04:43.:04:49.

BBC has been forced to reveal salaries and stars names. Is this a

:04:50.:04:53.

good idea? I do not necessarily think it is because the BBC is

:04:54.:04:57.

calling it a poacher's Charter and I do think it will expose some of

:04:58.:05:02.

their great talent to being nabbed by opponents. ITV will look at the

:05:03.:05:05.

salaries that some of these names are getting and some of the big

:05:06.:05:09.

names, like Gary Lineker and Chris Evans may be getting as much as 5

:05:10.:05:13.

million quid a year, we do not know, it has not yet been revealed, but

:05:14.:05:18.

ITV or sky, who have pots of money, will say, great, if we offer them

:05:19.:05:22.

5.1 million, we can get them. I think that it does jeopardise the

:05:23.:05:26.

BBC bus back position as a broadcaster which wants the best

:05:27.:05:31.

talent. -- the BBC's position. That might be a problem. Everyone in the

:05:32.:05:36.

business knows roughly what these people are earning. If I wanted to,

:05:37.:05:40.

I could find out what virtually every big star in the BBC,

:05:41.:05:44.

certainly, people stay at the BBC for different reasons. More

:05:45.:05:47.

security, pension plan rather good, better than it is elsewhere. I think

:05:48.:05:51.

we have got it right now. It is a bit embarrassing for a lot of

:05:52.:05:54.

people. I don't have an issue with people you are very talented who

:05:55.:05:58.

people want to watch and listen to being paid well. There are a lot of

:05:59.:06:05.

names here, Jeremy Vine, Fiona Bruce, these people... Nick

:06:06.:06:09.

Robinson, you can pay him ?5 million per year, still worth it if you ask

:06:10.:06:12.

me. But the British public will make up their own mind. That is one of an

:06:13.:06:18.

episode British bake off. Sorry, year. James, you are determined to

:06:19.:06:23.

bring the bake off back into it. That has got me upset. Let's move on

:06:24.:06:31.

to the Financial Times. The headline Theresa May tipped to get Hinckley

:06:32.:06:37.

green light as decision day looms for ?18 billion project. Just before

:06:38.:06:41.

we come to that, we have had a lemon from our political editor saying

:06:42.:06:43.

that the French and Chinese governments have been informed that

:06:44.:06:46.

the government will approve the Hinkley point deal, but with

:06:47.:06:51.

conditions. They expect the deal will be announced tomorrow but there

:06:52.:06:54.

has not yet been any official confirmation. The Times is basically

:06:55.:06:59.

saying that the French claim that it has been approved, that of their

:07:00.:07:03.

headline. So, this has been back and forward, James, has it not, but now

:07:04.:07:07.

it seems to be back on? It is funny, because Theresa May seems to have

:07:08.:07:10.

made a point of contradicting everything that David Cameron said

:07:11.:07:14.

since she has come in. Some people are suggesting that is one reason he

:07:15.:07:21.

has resigned as an MP. But economic is politics, is it not? In the

:07:22.:07:24.

post-Brexit world, we have to be very careful about not offending

:07:25.:07:26.

potential trading partners, which China very much is. So is France. We

:07:27.:07:31.

have got to finish this to make sure that they are not offended by our

:07:32.:07:35.

suppose that worries about security and the high cost of the

:07:36.:07:39.

electricity. Theresa May has a more wary attitude to the Chinese. She

:07:40.:07:44.

apparently in cabinet expressed concerns of the former Chancellor

:07:45.:07:48.

George Osborne's urge to shimmy up to the Chinese and say yes to

:07:49.:07:54.

everything. Kowtowing, I think Colin it at the time. I think there are

:07:55.:07:58.

very big issues about allowing the Chinese to have any say whatsoever

:07:59.:08:04.

in our energy security. EDF only voted, the French firm that would

:08:05.:08:07.

have the largest part of this, the only voted very narrowly, the lost

:08:08.:08:11.

their finance director, they do not want the deal either. It is going to

:08:12.:08:14.

go-ahead but there will be provisions regarding security and

:08:15.:08:18.

the cost. Bear in mind, the deal we were going to sign would mean very

:08:19.:08:22.

high electricity prices in a very changing market. The key is going to

:08:23.:08:27.

be the conditions attached. That is true but the realpolitik is how else

:08:28.:08:31.

will we raise the money and if we want to build this power station,

:08:32.:08:34.

the Chinese may be the only game in town? We must also mention the

:08:35.:08:37.

cartoon in the Telegraph, which James Caan redoubt. As the only

:08:38.:08:42.

short-sighted person here! -- James Caan redoubt. Two people

:08:43.:08:51.

are watching past include point and one says to the other I hope you

:08:52.:08:55.

build a new nuclear power station, I am worried it will be turned into a

:08:56.:09:01.

grammar school. Completing two of the biggest stories at the moment

:09:02.:09:03.

and the most perfect way. Apparently David Cameron turned to that first

:09:04.:09:06.

thing every morning as Prime Minister, because it was his

:09:07.:09:10.

favourite thing. He manages to some of the biggest news stories and it

:09:11.:09:13.

was brilliant, funny way every morning. Incredible hatred. Let's

:09:14.:09:20.

turn to the time is now -- incredible hit rate. Let's turn to

:09:21.:09:27.

The Times. E-mails reveal Clinton's agreed. What is this all about by

:09:28.:09:32.

Julia? These are private e-mails that have been revealed but for the

:09:33.:09:36.

former US Secretary of State, Republican. Both parties, Democrats

:09:37.:09:40.

and Republicans, were desperate to get him on board to run as their

:09:41.:09:44.

vice presidential candidate but the story all today from him had been

:09:45.:09:48.

his criticism of Donald Trump, saying he was a disgrace, a very

:09:49.:09:52.

strong word. They don't have chosen to lead on this revelation that he

:09:53.:09:55.

believes that Hillary Clinton is greedy. I have to say, there is not

:09:56.:10:03.

really any news in either of these. Weekend of Newell Stores! And the

:10:04.:10:08.

Pope is Catholic, he writes that somewhere as well. Do you think this

:10:09.:10:15.

will do her any harm? I think the feedback, the momentum, is very much

:10:16.:10:18.

against Hillary Clinton at the moment, since that shocking image.

:10:19.:10:21.

Whoever took that footage of her being held into the car and

:10:22.:10:26.

collapsing on Sunday, at the 9/11 commemoration, was very eager light.

:10:27.:10:29.

But that could be a game changer in this. I predicted is not at the

:10:30.:10:34.

whole idea of Hillary Clinton as weak and in some way fallible, that

:10:35.:10:38.

Trump has been hammering for months, those images seemed to confirm that.

:10:39.:10:43.

All the conspiracy theories that have been doing the rounds. She has

:10:44.:10:47.

not been seen since. She is recovering. The most damning thing

:10:48.:10:51.

was Bill Clinton going on television to defender and seeing that she

:10:52.:10:55.

regularly, no, rarely has these problems before of dehydration. I

:10:56.:11:00.

managed to walk around not dehydrated and collapsing pretty

:11:01.:11:03.

much every day of my life. She has got no money, has she not? It also

:11:04.:11:08.

plays into the idea that she is secretive, because she was diagnosed

:11:09.:11:12.

on Friday with pneumonia and the only revealed that to the public

:11:13.:11:16.

when she collapsed on Sunday. Hours later. Two days later. There is that

:11:17.:11:23.

sense with the November questions about the Clinton foundation that

:11:24.:11:26.

she is covering something up. She has a sense of entitlement and I am

:11:27.:11:29.

annoyed to know things other people are not. That is a negative thing.

:11:30.:11:33.

Although, are we unrealistic of expecting people of any age, she is

:11:34.:11:43.

68 and Donald Trump is 70, the idea that you could do at 20 hour day

:11:44.:11:49.

seven days a week for a couple of years and not eventually get ill?

:11:50.:11:51.

And we discover in the Telegraph that Trump has perhaps a hit on the

:11:52.:11:54.

other issue as well. You should talk about this one. As somebody whose

:11:55.:12:01.

testosterone is of the skill... Yes, baby! Everybody thinks when I go

:12:02.:12:07.

past with desire. That is a fantasy of mine that has never been

:12:08.:12:11.

fulfilled! Let's get back on track. He said to Doctor Oz, a very

:12:12.:12:15.

well-known chat show host in the US, that he has high testosterone and

:12:16.:12:21.

that just, again, reinforces this idea that he is much. He got into

:12:22.:12:27.

that very childish playground row with Marco Rubio, who said he had

:12:28.:12:31.

small hands and what that means, and Donald Trump came out and said he

:12:32.:12:35.

had no problems in that department. How old is he? Why do we do not need

:12:36.:12:39.

to know that, James! I am reminding you! Media that plays well in middle

:12:40.:12:46.

America, but I find it repulsive. This is the story began most

:12:47.:12:50.

passionately about. In theatres, they want to introduce quieter

:12:51.:12:54.

versions of that. I do not have a problem of people eating in

:12:55.:12:57.

theatres, it has not been an issue, but in cinemas they have popcorn,

:12:58.:13:00.

popcorn is not loud enough, let's come up with nachos. How can you

:13:01.:13:07.

have quiet popcorn? Why not just not eat while you're at the theatre on

:13:08.:13:12.

the cinema? How about staying at home? If you're going to eat

:13:13.:13:18.

locally. I do not understand the idea of going into a darkened room

:13:19.:13:22.

to listen to other people eat. They have darkened restaurants, I do not

:13:23.:13:26.

understand those either. On that note... This is a discussion for a

:13:27.:13:32.

later! Don't forget, all the front pages are online on the BBC news

:13:33.:13:36.

website, where you can we a detailed review of the papers. It is all

:13:37.:13:40.

there for you seven days a [email protected] eight. You can see us

thereto. With each night's edition posted shortly after we are

finished. Thank you very much to my guests. Thank you for watching. Now

:13:50.:13:52.

we have the weather. Good evening. Fed up with the heat?

:13:53.:14:05.

There is cooler weather on the horizon. Today has been another

:14:06.:14:09.

remarkable mid-September date, with temperatures soaring in some places.
