Coming up is Tim Burton's latest blockbuster and we will find out

:00:00.:00:00.

just how peculiar it is. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:14.

to what the papers will be With me are journalist and author

:00:15.:00:18.

Toby Young and Philippa Also a very keen golfer. Welcome to

:00:19.:00:21.

you both. Let's have a quick look at some

:00:22.:00:37.

of the front pages. The Sunday Times says Theresa May's

:00:38.:00:40.

fired the Brexit starting gun, saying she'll launch

:00:41.:00:43.

a Great Repeal Bill in the Spring, scrapping the law that took Britain

:00:44.:00:45.

into Europe 44 years ago. The Express also has that story,

:00:46.:00:48.

proclaiming At Last! Brexit also leads the Observer,

:00:49.:00:51.

with claims from former Education Secretary Nicky Morgan,

:00:52.:00:54.

that the UK turning its back on the single market

:00:55.:00:56.

and closing its borders, It also has an interview

:00:57.:00:59.

with Samantha Jefferies, the widow of a Falklands war

:01:00.:01:04.

veteran, who this week won a high court battle

:01:05.:01:07.

to keep their frozen embryos. The Mail has claims from comedian

:01:08.:01:10.

Jon Holmes that he was axed by the BBC for being 'white

:01:11.:01:17.

and male', as part of a line-up The Daily Star Sunday leads

:01:18.:01:21.

on the death of boxer Mike Towell, who died after suffering a serious

:01:22.:01:26.

head injury during It has a tribute from

:01:27.:01:28.

the 25-year-old's girlfriend, with the headline 'My baby

:01:29.:01:31.

has lost his daddy'. Let's start with the papers looking

:01:32.:01:46.

at Brexit, bearing in mind we are on the eve of the Conservative Party

:01:47.:01:50.

conference starting tomorrow in Birmingham. An interview with the

:01:51.:01:57.

Prime Minister. She does not give these out lightly. The speech would

:01:58.:02:10.

declare you -- the UK in the end. She has given it to the Sunday

:02:11.:02:15.

Telegraph. I think she has also given something to the sun on Sunday

:02:16.:02:22.

but I not sure what they have got. Anyway, it was the obvious time for

:02:23.:02:28.

her to launch Brexit, really. People have been talking about it all week,

:02:29.:02:37.

white hazards she started? It... It... I thought, really, she has

:02:38.:02:44.

been giving it a great deal of thought because, really, there are

:02:45.:02:50.

three people to talk to, David Davison, Boris Johnson, she had to

:02:51.:02:56.

get it right and we hope she will get it right in the presentation

:02:57.:02:59.

which looks like a little bit of something for everyone to keep the

:03:00.:03:05.

Remainers a little bit happy. We do not have any timescale but we have

:03:06.:03:10.

this Great Repeal Bill which will get us out of the EU. It is easy to

:03:11.:03:19.

read too much into this. It does not tell us whether it will be soft or

:03:20.:03:25.

hard, it does not tell us anything about when Article 50 will be

:03:26.:03:32.

triggered, when we will be leaving the EU. The repeal of the 1972

:03:33.:03:37.

European Communities Act will not happen until after Article 50 has

:03:38.:03:42.

been triggered and two years after we have left the EU. This will not

:03:43.:03:49.

trigger the process. That is the critical factor in all this. What is

:03:50.:03:55.

significant is that she is going to embark upon the first and necessary

:03:56.:04:02.

step in our departure. It is hard to imagine her doing this if she did

:04:03.:04:07.

not intend to invoke Article 50. Anyone who was holding out some hope

:04:08.:04:14.

that we might remain in the EU, that we might we negotiate our

:04:15.:04:22.

membership, it puts paid to that. She has been very clever. If we look

:04:23.:04:32.

at the Sunday Telegraph, a slightly confusing argument, in repealing, we

:04:33.:04:38.

are going to take in all the EU laws otherwise there would be a vacuum in

:04:39.:04:44.

so many areas of legislation. By doing that, our politicians in this

:04:45.:04:52.

country can go through all of those laws and keep the ones that are

:04:53.:04:57.

worth keeping an in the ones that are not. She has painted broad

:04:58.:05:04.

brushstrokes and gradually filling in the colours. I think it will be

:05:05.:05:09.

the wake she tells it tomorrow. She does not want this conference

:05:10.:05:13.

dominated by Brexit. She wants to have more on her CV than just Brexit

:05:14.:05:21.

but I think she... I do not think that is going to happen because it

:05:22.:05:25.

is the only story that matters at the moment. What happens to the

:05:26.:05:31.

environmental legislation? What happens to the worker 's rights, for

:05:32.:05:37.

example? All those things in the unions hold dear. One of the sort of

:05:38.:05:46.

planks of the Bremain case during the referendum was that all these

:05:47.:05:53.

rights, these environmental protections, would be jeopardised if

:05:54.:05:59.

we left. The moment we leave, they no longer apply. The answer is that

:06:00.:06:04.

they would be brought into British law and, in due course, we will make

:06:05.:06:10.

a decision about what to keep and what not to keep. That paid to that

:06:11.:06:18.

argument also. They are not going to be tossed aside simply because we

:06:19.:06:25.

voted to leave. It will now be in our hands. She is under huge

:06:26.:06:31.

pressure from industry to sort of make those things clear, workers

:06:32.:06:37.

rights, holidays, health, all the things that matter the big

:06:38.:06:42.

investors. Nissan is holding back its plans until they see what is

:06:43.:06:49.

going on. When it comes to reassuring investors, when it comes

:06:50.:06:56.

to the vast body of EU law which is currently on the statute, that is

:06:57.:07:00.

not going to be removed. We are still going to be able to trade with

:07:01.:07:05.

the European Union at least legally on the same term. In the

:07:06.:07:16.

Independent, underneath a photograph of Theresa May and her husband, she

:07:17.:07:21.

is 60 today, not a big celebration she has too many things to do. A

:07:22.:07:27.

poll says a majority would prefer a soft Brexit. That is keeping the

:07:28.:07:34.

single market rather than shutting the border and having no access.

:07:35.:07:40.

That is kind of a false opposition. No one, even the most hardline

:07:41.:07:45.

Brexiters are saying which should have no access. We will always have

:07:46.:07:54.

access, even if we trade on WTO terms, we still will have access. If

:07:55.:07:59.

the question was presented by the Independent on Sunday to the poll

:08:00.:08:07.

responders, pull up the drawbridge, withdraw and never have access to

:08:08.:08:12.

any aspect of the European Union again or shall we allow some

:08:13.:08:18.

element, of course they were going to go full let's not be too hard

:08:19.:08:23.

lined on freedom of movement if it means no access but, of course, we

:08:24.:08:30.

would continue to have access. We just would not be members of it. It

:08:31.:08:36.

is like another mini referendum. We do not know what the questions and

:08:37.:08:41.

answers are because we have the front page of a newspaper that does

:08:42.:08:46.

not exist in print but I would love to know what the questions were... I

:08:47.:08:53.

shall we will find out tomorrow, hopefully. I suppose it is more

:08:54.:09:00.

nuanced to the question that the binary question - in the referendum

:09:01.:09:06.

so they have more opportunities to stretch their legs but it depends

:09:07.:09:12.

surely on what our current partners in Europe allow us to have? In a

:09:13.:09:19.

sense, it does not really matter what the British public think the

:09:20.:09:27.

arrangement should be between Britain and the EU. It is largely

:09:28.:09:32.

out of our hands. It will be one country out of 28th at that

:09:33.:09:39.

negotiating table and this is white Theresa May does not want to be

:09:40.:09:44.

defined by Rex said. How it turns out, is largely out of her hands.

:09:45.:09:49.

She wants to be defined by something else and that is why she wants to

:09:50.:09:54.

get this out of the way so she can set out her stall and define

:09:55.:10:02.

herself. Tomorrow will be the Brexit speech and then the one she wants to

:10:03.:10:06.

have. It will be interesting to see how much publicity that gets. Let's

:10:07.:10:12.

look at this cartoon. He is so clever. Taking one of the

:10:13.:10:29.

biggest stories... And blending it with that. The BBC sacked me for

:10:30.:10:37.

being a white man. This is a comedian, John Holmes, who is now no

:10:38.:10:41.

longer part of the satirical programme that has been on radio or

:10:42.:10:47.

quite some time. He says it is because he doesn't help them with

:10:48.:10:51.

diversity. He said when he received the telephone call from someone at

:10:52.:10:58.

the BBC, informing him that his services will no longer require,

:10:59.:11:05.

after 18 years, he was told he was not going to be invited back because

:11:06.:11:10.

they were casting it with more women and diversity. Effectively, he was

:11:11.:11:15.

being sacked seemingly because he was a white male and not because he

:11:16.:11:22.

was a white male. He does not have the face for radio! Was told how one

:11:23.:11:29.

woman presenter was given a job only later to be told, we cannot have you

:11:30.:11:35.

because you are too white and middle class. Are you white long in the

:11:36.:11:42.

tooth... We can both go and apply on a job in the show. It is very

:11:43.:11:48.

typical, the mail always has it in for the BBC, I have not sure why but

:11:49.:11:55.

they do. I do not know the details, I do not know this man and his work

:11:56.:12:00.

but it could be they were trying to sugar the appeal, saying it is

:12:01.:12:05.

nothing to do with your shortcomings but just because you are a white

:12:06.:12:15.

male. The BBC said, that we always hire presenters on merit. We would

:12:16.:12:20.

like to thank both presenters but as we explained a week ago, our comedy

:12:21.:12:28.

shows... Our comedy shows are constantly evolving and it is time

:12:29.:12:37.

to allow new talent in. From the East Midlands... Your accent is

:12:38.:12:48.

gone. You are working class. I will do the headlines in Leicestershire

:12:49.:12:55.

accent next week. The picture of another pullout of Kate and

:12:56.:12:59.

Charlotte on their tour of Canada. Can you see it? Have you got it,

:13:00.:13:07.

Bill? There you go. On the top. You also can have a maple leaf brooch.

:13:08.:13:16.

Inspired by the Princess. They are going down a storm? They are the

:13:17.:13:25.

monarchy's greatest asset and the fact that the Royal Family, the

:13:26.:13:31.

firm, has decided to foreground them and keep Prince Charles and Camilla

:13:32.:13:35.

in the background is a sensible decision. Given the risk posed by

:13:36.:13:42.

Prince Charles being the heir to the throne. There will be a period in

:13:43.:13:48.

which he will struggle to command the same popular affection. We can

:13:49.:13:54.

focus on the next in line after him, it keeps the institution alive. I

:13:55.:14:04.

think she has upped the anti-. She has worn fantastic, very expensive

:14:05.:14:11.

clothes, Alexander McQueen, Dolce and Gabbana. And she has graced many

:14:12.:14:28.

a front page. Thank you very much. Coming up next is the film review.
