the Film Review. Will be talking about Nocturnal Animals with one of

:00:00.:00:00.

its stars, Amy Adams and the director Tom Ford.

:00:00.:00:12.

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

:00:13.:00:16.

With me are the broadcaster, John Stapleton and the former

:00:17.:00:20.

Conservative Employment Minister, Esther McVey.

:00:21.:00:24.

The Financial Times which says the government's

:00:25.:00:29.

considering paying the EU billions of pounds to retain Single Market

:00:30.:00:32.

of a looming economic crisis on both sides of the border.

:00:33.:00:41.

The Express says that pro-Remain MPs are plotting to halt a full exit

:00:42.:00:45.

Hammond is accused of trying to 'undermine Brexit'

:00:46.:00:52.

The Sun's top story is on legal actions against British troops.

:00:53.:00:58.

It reports Prince Harry has described them as 'a'joke'.

:00:59.:01:04.

The Mirror splashes on the search for missing toddler Ben Needham.

:01:05.:01:07.

It shows his grieving mother and grandmother and the police

:01:08.:01:09.

The Metro reports claims by a charity that seven out of ten

:01:10.:01:15.

tenants are living in damp or infested homes.

:01:16.:01:18.

which says that 40% of homes are below an acceptable living standard.

:01:19.:01:31.

Let's start with the times. One of the papers that is looking at

:01:32.:01:38.

Phillip Hammond's attitude towards what Brexit should look like.

:01:39.:01:43.

Hammond clashes with Brexiteers on migrants. He worries that curbs

:01:44.:01:50.

could harm business. As you said that in the headline, the accountant

:01:51.:01:58.

quick, that is the sort that I had. The Chancellor of the Exchequer

:01:59.:02:04.

behaving like an accountant. He raises what many people say is a

:02:05.:02:08.

valid point, if we expect school workers to come here to have visas

:02:09.:02:16.

and put a block on nonskilled workers, businesses that will be

:02:17.:02:20.

affected. Farming, for example, relies on casual labour. Unless,

:02:21.:02:26.

they decide to pay more money and then British people may decide to do

:02:27.:02:31.

the job. His counselling caution and being criticised for doing so. He

:02:32.:02:35.

did not like the idea, the potential idea of visas for skilled workers.

:02:36.:02:43.

He asked us to look at the options. We all laughed at that joke about

:02:44.:02:50.

him being an accountant. Later on he said he is facing accusations as

:02:51.:02:55.

part of a pattern of behaviour on which the Treasury has failed to

:02:56.:02:59.

provide construct if assistance to the Brexit process. That is the

:03:00.:03:03.

problem, not whether or not is acting like an accountant because

:03:04.:03:06.

that is as it should be, but whether he is acting on behalf of the

:03:07.:03:09.

Treasury which did not necessarily want to go along the Brexit vote and

:03:10.:03:16.

they were not really accepting the fact that the country voted to go

:03:17.:03:21.

out. What David Davis voted for was the best access to the EU but

:03:22.:03:25.

outside the EU and working within that. What people wanted when they

:03:26.:03:29.

voted for Brexit actually was a control so that we could have say

:03:30.:03:33.

over what was going on. But you cannot frustrate will of the people.

:03:34.:03:37.

Get a good deal but do not frustrate them. Do you think Hammond is

:03:38.:03:41.

comfortable? He and his Treasury officials or are they frustrated

:03:42.:03:46.

even more? They need to look to see what best way forward is. It is not

:03:47.:03:51.

for them as a couple of important people without doubt but the vote

:03:52.:03:55.

has been given and you go forward and say how do we do this? You look

:03:56.:04:00.

at the other countries with big trading partners with the EU,

:04:01.:04:09.

Russia, China and the US. They were to WTO rules. We could do that.

:04:10.:04:15.

There is another aspect. Cabinet paying billions to keep single

:04:16.:04:19.

market access. For some people Brexit meant not been part of the

:04:20.:04:24.

single market. Many people who voted Leave would say that we thought the

:04:25.:04:29.

whole deal was that we dictate our own laws, curb immigration and do

:04:30.:04:33.

not need to pay the EU billions of pounds every year. But this suggests

:04:34.:04:37.

that in order to keep the city sweet and functioning we may have to keep

:04:38.:04:41.

doing that. It would be something of a surprise. Look at the paper it is

:04:42.:04:45.

in. The Financial Times. Of course they are. The people they want to

:04:46.:04:49.

sell this newspaper to any other bankers. You've got to listen to it,

:04:50.:04:54.

it is an important industry but at the end of the day what we cannot

:04:55.:04:58.

have is now Brexit. If people want to be in the single market than

:04:59.:05:02.

paying for the bill is run by EU courts and also having free movement

:05:03.:05:06.

of people, you are still in the EU. You have not come out. It will take

:05:07.:05:10.

some explaining, like this piece set, it will not go down well in

:05:11.:05:15.

certain quarters. Let's move on and look at the Telegraph. A picture

:05:16.:05:21.

here of a Baroness facing an key's question over the timing of her

:05:22.:05:27.

peerage. A very successful woman. Ran Liberty for many years. Probably

:05:28.:05:33.

could have sat on the bench of labour at any point that it is the

:05:34.:05:38.

fact that she has been in charge of this anti-Semitism investigation

:05:39.:05:42.

within the Labour Party. It was ultimately seen as some by a

:05:43.:05:45.

whitewash and the question is at what stage did she accept the

:05:46.:05:49.

peerage from the Labour Party? Subsequently made shadow attorney

:05:50.:05:56.

general. I, like you, have known her well professionally. Interviewed her

:05:57.:05:59.

many times and have the highest regard. But this is a mess. We need

:06:00.:06:04.

clarification here. It appears that the allegation is that when she was

:06:05.:06:09.

asked by the then chairman of the relevant committee to provide an

:06:10.:06:12.

answer to the question when did you say yes to the peerage, she is yet

:06:13.:06:16.

to do so. She spoken about it had an interview with the BBC in but that

:06:17.:06:20.

is not really for a Parliamentary point of view satisfactory. Until

:06:21.:06:25.

that happens, you know, we are not clear about this. To be ferried is

:06:26.:06:31.

not just a few people complaining it is a whitewash it is the home

:06:32.:06:35.

affairs select call it committee as well saying that actually what you

:06:36.:06:39.

have within the Labour Party now is an institutionally it has become

:06:40.:06:43.

anti-Semitic and therefore there is a problem. Look at the timing. She

:06:44.:06:47.

was doing this report. It did not separate out what she was doing, it

:06:48.:06:52.

was not a thorough investigation at the same time she was, it appears,

:06:53.:06:57.

she is getting a peerage and she goes straight in with an appointment

:06:58.:07:00.

to the shadow attorney general position. All of that for herself

:07:01.:07:06.

she needs to come out and explain it because you up quite right, she has

:07:07.:07:10.

had quite a good career so far. This now is not looking too good for her

:07:11.:07:16.

or anybody else and that report was pulled. The daily mirror and the

:07:17.:07:27.

anguish of Ben's family. Over 20 years since the child disappeared in

:07:28.:07:31.

Greece. Many searches being done on a suggestion that he was killed by a

:07:32.:07:35.

digger driver. This poor family, you have interviewed them. 25 years,

:07:36.:07:41.

certainly in the early stages I was in touch with the family quite a lot

:07:42.:07:46.

and I cannot tell you, you can imagine what they have been through.

:07:47.:07:51.

Every time the phone rings in that house there is the thought that is

:07:52.:07:57.

this the tells them they have found and it is all over. Their life has

:07:58.:08:01.

been a rollercoaster. Emotions are peering down here, year after year

:08:02.:08:05.

after year. And there are people to say we should not be wasting time

:08:06.:08:08.

and money in pursuing this investigation. I would say that walk

:08:09.:08:16.

a mile in their shoes. I know it is an American word, but when you have

:08:17.:08:19.

no closure and when you have not seen a body or yawn not seen your

:08:20.:08:24.

child, you cannot put to bed as it were a new live with that for ever.

:08:25.:08:31.

I was on the Madeleine McCann board, working with Kate McCann because of

:08:32.:08:36.

the college with her. It is the most exhausting thing is living with

:08:37.:08:41.

hope, hoping that the phone call will come. Understanding that it is

:08:42.:08:50.

truly terrible. The Independent. Boris Johnson tries to explain his

:08:51.:08:55.

about-face on Europe. He wrote two articles. One in favour of remain,

:08:56.:09:01.

the other in favour of leave. He has had some questions. Two days after

:09:02.:09:08.

it published the article saying leave, of course, he came out, as it

:09:09.:09:14.

were. If you have read it it certainly is not a ringing

:09:15.:09:17.

endorsement to stay in. In fact the first half of it talks about how he

:09:18.:09:22.

was hoping that there would have been a wonderful renegotiation with

:09:23.:09:26.

Europe and he would come back and there would be things they could do.

:09:27.:09:31.

There was not. But why do it? Why write an article like this and white

:09:32.:09:37.

print it? At the time he was wondering what to do. Nobody would

:09:38.:09:46.

come out with their view until after the renegotiation. Sometime in

:09:47.:09:50.

February. He writes for the Telegraph every week. His view was

:09:51.:09:54.

to come out but he thought and he said, you know, he was looking into

:09:55.:10:01.

if there was anything he could support. So it was written for

:10:02.:10:10.

Boris's benefit? At the very end the yes the vote is a bit of a deal that

:10:11.:10:19.

it contains a germ of something good. It is not a ringing

:10:20.:10:25.

endorsement. Later on he said that he was a Brexiteer and he believed

:10:26.:10:31.

it was for the best of the country. Soul-searching is good. I was not

:10:32.:10:39.

somebody who was out automatically. I took a lot of soul-searching and a

:10:40.:10:43.

lot of understanding what was going on and eventually I came to the

:10:44.:10:47.

conclusion. I am glad he did all of that and I am glad he worked out and

:10:48.:10:52.

I am glad he went through a lot of anxiety because it is right to have

:10:53.:10:55.

the right decision for the country. Let us have a look at the Daily

:10:56.:11:00.

Mail. Victim is now blame victims for being burgled. He. A police

:11:01.:11:17.

officer has likened people who leave a window open and then asked police

:11:18.:11:24.

to investigate a burglary to people who are obese. And as the NHS for

:11:25.:11:31.

help. I have some sympathy for the police. They are overworked and

:11:32.:11:34.

undermanned. The research into school on the services. Some are

:11:35.:11:40.

grateful, some are not. I know when my house was burgled it was entirely

:11:41.:11:46.

my fault. They were around in a flash and I got a number and it was

:11:47.:11:51.

all over and done no time at all. It is a tricky one. I think years on

:11:52.:11:55.

thin ice here. He also said that what he wants to do is have more

:11:56.:11:59.

crime prevention so that people do lock doors and what they are

:12:00.:12:03.

concerned about here as student ignoring home security. They would

:12:04.:12:09.

soon go out. It is obvious. Close up and block the windows. Do the best

:12:10.:12:13.

you can. Of course it should investigate it.

:12:14.:12:15.
