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

:00:14.:00:16.

Giving up their Saturday evening especially for us...

:00:17.:00:25.

With me are journalist and author Toby Young

:00:26.:00:27.

Nice to have you both here, thank you.

:00:28.:00:33.

The Sunday Times says Theresa May's fired the Brexit starting gun,

:00:34.:00:37.

saying she'll launch a "Great Repeal Bill" in the Spring,

:00:38.:00:40.

scrapping the law that took Britain into Europe 44 years ago.

:00:41.:00:42.

The Express also has that story, proclaiming 'At Last!

:00:43.:00:45.

Brexit also leads the Observer - with claims from former

:00:46.:00:49.

Education Secretary Nicky Morgan that the UK turning its back

:00:50.:00:52.

on the single market and closing its borders doors

:00:53.:00:54.

to the single maket a hard Britain leaving the EU will lead to bigotry.

:00:55.:01:01.

It also has an interview Samantha Jefferies,

:01:02.:01:06.

the widow of Falklands hero, who this week won a High Court

:01:07.:01:09.

Brexit galore ahead of the Conservative Party conference in

:01:10.:01:23.

Birmingham, that is the subject likely to dominate the conference.

:01:24.:01:30.

The Sunday Times says this, May fire is Brexit starting gun, Tim Shipman,

:01:31.:01:36.

in an interview with him, sometimes we see him at the desk.

:01:37.:01:41.

How will this great repeal Bill work? The story is that she will

:01:42.:01:44.

introduce a bill in the next Queen 's speech proposing to repeal the

:01:45.:01:50.

1972 communities act, that took us in to the European Community. What

:01:51.:01:57.

it did was make EU law, European Law as it then was, supreme over British

:01:58.:02:02.

law. This would effectively be restoring sovereignty to the British

:02:03.:02:08.

Parliament. It is being presented, I think being spun, by to reason and

:02:09.:02:17.

her team, as a kind of Brexit means Brexit attitude towards Brexit -- by

:02:18.:02:21.

Theresa May and her team. We will repeal this act and make British law

:02:22.:02:26.

supreme again. But constitutionally it is difficult to imagine how we

:02:27.:02:30.

would withdraw from the European Union without repealing the European

:02:31.:02:33.

Communities Act. She would have to do that. I don't think it has much

:02:34.:02:38.

bearing on the hard versus soft Brexit debate. She is beginning the

:02:39.:02:43.

process though, formally, of Britain's withdrawal from the EU.

:02:44.:02:47.

There is no ambiguity about that going forward but the exact nature

:02:48.:02:51.

of what the relationship would be with the EU post Brexit is up for

:02:52.:02:55.

grabs. What is interesting is the fact that she has done this

:02:56.:02:59.

interview with The Sunday Times. It to political journalists complain

:03:00.:03:03.

there is not a lot coming from Downing Street, it is pretty

:03:04.:03:07.

watertight. She is carefully chosen her but all week we've had

:03:08.:03:12.

columnists gearing up and saying it is time she got started. Peter

:03:13.:03:21.

butterball on Saturday morning, and they are saying, what has taken her

:03:22.:03:25.

so long? Clearly this is the right time for her to press the starting

:03:26.:03:30.

button, don't you think? And I think, also, it has to be the way

:03:31.:03:35.

she tells it. As Frank Carson used to say, and how she tells it. How

:03:36.:03:39.

she put it across will matter of great deal tomorrow. If we look at

:03:40.:03:44.

the Sunday Telegraph's take on it, she says -- it says "Made takes it

:03:45.:03:53.

to EU law". If we take it all in, we have to rummage through to see which

:03:54.:03:57.

bits eventually down the track we would want to keep? That would mean

:03:58.:04:01.

British MPs would vote on it, rather than it being imposed upon us by

:04:02.:04:08.

Brussels, that is what... But we have always had a say in Brussels,

:04:09.:04:12.

haven't we? We sent our own ministers and MEPs to Brussels, but

:04:13.:04:18.

it brings it down to Westminster? I suppose, hitherto something like 59%

:04:19.:04:24.

of the UK laws originated... Toby, let's not get started on those

:04:25.:04:30.

percentages! No laws thereafter originating in Brussels would have

:04:31.:04:35.

to become additional. One of the things Theresa May is proposing to

:04:36.:04:41.

do -- British law. She is proposing to incorporate all those EU laws

:04:42.:04:45.

that apply to Britain at the moment into British law, and then decide

:04:46.:04:50.

which bit she wants to jettison at which bits we want to keep. At the

:04:51.:04:54.

moment, it would be taking lock, stock and barrel on to the British

:04:55.:04:59.

statute. So what is the point of Brexit? We had to have some laws to

:05:00.:05:02.

tide us over, we cannot have a vacuum... There would be a myriad of

:05:03.:05:07.

difficulties if we did not take all EU laws that apply to Britain, it

:05:08.:05:12.

would be illegal for the city to continue to trade. Nobody would know

:05:13.:05:16.

where they stood. We talk about British law, but there's no such

:05:17.:05:20.

thing, wouldn't Scotland have to take these laws for themselves? They

:05:21.:05:24.

have a separate legal system. We've not heard a squeak from Nicola

:05:25.:05:28.

Sturgeon today... She has responded on twitter to some of the things

:05:29.:05:33.

that people have... Only this evening. One of the details of this

:05:34.:05:38.

business, David Davis will give a speech, some of that has been leaked

:05:39.:05:45.

in the Sunday Telegraph, he will say various EU laws apply to workers'

:05:46.:05:51.

rights that will be incorporated into the British statute books. That

:05:52.:05:56.

removes the pillar of the labour remained case, which is that these

:05:57.:05:59.

rights would be in jeopardy the moment we voted to leave. That

:06:00.:06:05.

seems, I think, designed in part to ensure Jeremy Corbyn does not oppose

:06:06.:06:10.

the great repeal act. But assuming those laws remain on the statute

:06:11.:06:17.

books here, in Scotland and England and Wales and Northern Ireland... It

:06:18.:06:21.

makes my head hurt actually thinking about it! But it is one day at a

:06:22.:06:27.

time, isn't it? She has pressed the button, it will all start, and I

:06:28.:06:32.

think if these leaks are all true, she is preparing the way, hopefully

:06:33.:06:39.

what she is trying to do is get Brexit out way so she can talk about

:06:40.:06:43.

other stuff. It's the only story around! You have the Observer saying

:06:44.:06:49.

that hard Brexit would breathe new bigotry, says leading Tory. Nicky

:06:50.:06:55.

Morgan, the former Education Secretary, she was sacked in July

:06:56.:06:59.

and she was critical not so long ago that there is not a proper road map,

:07:00.:07:03.

she did not think Theresa May had a plan and now she is saying that

:07:04.:07:08.

there will be trump like attitude is growing in this country? Yes, she

:07:09.:07:15.

has decided to sound a note of dissent -- Trump like attitudes. On

:07:16.:07:21.

the eve of the Conservative Party conference, she has lead to some of

:07:22.:07:24.

her speech to the Observer newspaper. One of the reasons

:07:25.:07:28.

Theresa May is making the speech tomorrow and not as her set piece

:07:29.:07:32.

political speech later at the end of the Conservative Party conference,

:07:33.:07:35.

she hopes to park the issue and move on to defining what it is she stands

:07:36.:07:40.

for and what she wants the government to do over the next four

:07:41.:07:44.

years, aside from Brexit. She does not want to be defined by that. It

:07:45.:07:52.

is imposed upon her. It looks like there will be Cabinet members making

:07:53.:07:55.

dissenting speech to rob the conference, she will not clear the

:07:56.:08:01.

air at beginning to enable them to set out stall on Wednesday. They

:08:02.:08:04.

were not going to make it that easy for her. Let's finish with Brexit,

:08:05.:08:17.

and Matt's cartoon... He is so good at this... There is a man at the

:08:18.:08:28.

podium and he says this... It's brilliant. I think it is lovely. Who

:08:29.:08:33.

could have brought together Brexit and The Great British Bake Off? Now

:08:34.:08:41.

let's stay with the Observer. Syrian children pictured among the

:08:42.:08:45.

rubble south of Syria's border with Turkey.

:08:46.:08:48.

The headline, Russia warns US as hospital is hit in UN blitz.

:08:49.:08:54.

This is a hospital which is being hit for the second time in eastern

:08:55.:08:57.

Syria in three days. What is the warning from Russia?

:08:58.:09:01.

Russia is being blamed for these strikes? The whole thing makes you

:09:02.:09:10.

feel so helpless, I think. We cannot do anything about it. All you can

:09:11.:09:17.

say is, isn't it awful that they are attacking hospitals and aid convoys?

:09:18.:09:24.

When that baby was pulled out of the rubble the other day, the aid

:09:25.:09:29.

worker... The rescuer, he was in tears. I saw Kate Silverton in tears

:09:30.:09:37.

just talking about it. That's all you can do, you can cry and do

:09:38.:09:41.

nothing... We aren't even seeing the worst of the pictures. They are so

:09:42.:09:45.

gruesome we don't even put them on British television because they are

:09:46.:09:49.

so upsetting. You just want someone to stand up to Vladimir Putin. Yeah,

:09:50.:09:55.

what is shocking about this, there are a lot of things that are

:09:56.:09:59.

shocking, bombing a hospital is pretty shocking, but the fact that

:10:00.:10:05.

Russia is completely shameless. It is making no bones about the fact

:10:06.:10:14.

that it has barrel bombed a hospital in Aleppo. Essentially putting it

:10:15.:10:18.

out of commission. The kinds of bombs that burst open with

:10:19.:10:23.

immense... Causing immense damage because of the stuff they are packed

:10:24.:10:28.

with. It is a flagrant breach of international law. On the Telegraph

:10:29.:10:34.

front page, they have Boris, Apple Foreign Secretary, accusing Russia

:10:35.:10:34.

of double top -- double top strikes, they bomb a

:10:35.:10:44.

particular area so that first responders arrive on the scene, then

:10:45.:10:50.

bomb it again. That's old IRA tactics... It brings home how

:10:51.:10:56.

important it is that Donald Trump is not made president of the US, it

:10:57.:11:02.

looks like Donald Trump is a Putin puppet. What about the sport, and

:11:03.:11:10.

light relief. Sergio Garcia, he played amazingly well this

:11:11.:11:14.

afternoon. Toby and I will take a back-seat on this one... That's

:11:15.:11:18.

deferred to Philippa, a keen golfer herself, tell us why this is so

:11:19.:11:22.

exciting. The Ryder Cup is something very special. I have to say, I shot

:11:23.:11:29.

my blinds and get the ice cream in, and watch it for four days. I have

:11:30.:11:34.

been watching it all day today... We are lucky to have you here tonight!

:11:35.:11:41.

The first day was horrendous. Four down, the Americans won the first

:11:42.:11:47.

four matches, but today, this particular pairing, Sergio?Garcia

:11:48.:11:52.

and his partner, Cabrera Bello, they were four down again, four down,

:11:53.:11:58.

they were going to be wiped out but they started to fight back.

:11:59.:12:02.

Gradually one after the other, they pulled back. Something like four

:12:03.:12:07.

birdies in a row, and it meant half a point. Half a point does not sound

:12:08.:12:12.

very much but in terms of spirit, that half point is probably worth

:12:13.:12:17.

about three points, because they had been up against not only the

:12:18.:12:22.

American team but a really horrible partisan crowd. The behaviour of the

:12:23.:12:26.

American... Spectators has been appalling. They've been sharing

:12:27.:12:32.

missed putts, when someone's ball goes into the water... Heckling?

:12:33.:12:38.

Yes, it's just been awful. Might have whetted our appetite with that!

:12:39.:12:44.

Toby, you gone very quiet! Let's hope Toby can help us out with

:12:45.:12:49.

shoulder pads! This story on the front of the Sunday Telegraph, about

:12:50.:12:51.

Do -- Dynasty coming back. I don't hold

:12:52.:13:09.

out much hope. Dallas was revived in 2012, and it lasted for about three

:13:10.:13:14.

seasons before they pulled the plug. Dynasty was always... It was always

:13:15.:13:20.

the poor relation of Dallas. The Carrington 's and the Colbys, wasn't

:13:21.:13:30.

it? Yes, Jerry Collins in Dynasty. I was on the women's page when it came

:13:31.:13:34.

out, dispatched down to Harrods to do the first shoulder padded jackets

:13:35.:13:39.

that came in, they were fantastic. I took them into my editor, Sir Larry

:13:40.:13:43.

Lamb at the time, and we photographed them, just the jackets,

:13:44.:13:47.

and he looks at me and says, my wife would not wear a jacket like that

:13:48.:13:51.

without a blouse! And I thought, right, that's the end of my

:13:52.:13:55.

career... I wonder whether it will catch on again. Would you wear it? I

:13:56.:14:03.

certainly wouldn't, my shoulders are quite big enough without shoulder

:14:04.:14:07.

pads! That's all for The Papers this hour but Tony and Philippa will be

:14:08.:14:11.

back at half past 11 for another look at the stories making the front

:14:12.:14:15.

pages tomorrow. Stay with us on BBC News, at 11pm, more on the great

:14:16.:14:19.

repeal Bill announced by the Prime Minister Theresa May. Coming up

:14:20.:14:21.

next,
