Hello and good evening, welcome to our look ahead in what would be in

:00:18.:00:23.

newspapers tomorrow morning, and we have got Benedict Baggio, and the

:00:24.:00:28.

former Trade Minister Lord Digby Jones. Let us just show you the

:00:29.:00:34.

front pages that we have. The FT says that Western countries are

:00:35.:00:37.

resisting Chinese takeovers of businesses led to about ?32 billion

:00:38.:00:42.

worth of acquisitions being blocked. The Daily Mail says that shutting

:00:43.:00:47.

down the migrant camp in Calais will cost Britain ?36 million. The pop

:00:48.:00:50.

star Pete Burns who has died of a heart attack is on the front of the

:00:51.:00:54.

daily Star. The Telegraph says that the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson

:00:55.:00:59.

is planning to block the proposed expansion of Heathrow Airport if the

:01:00.:01:07.

government gives its backing to the project tomorrow. The closure of the

:01:08.:01:09.

migrant camp in Calais, is the main story of the express which says that

:01:10.:01:12.

new sites could be spring up within weeks. One in four local authorities

:01:13.:01:15.

are refusing to accept refugee children from the Calais Campbell

:01:16.:01:18.

according to the garden. And the daily Mirror says that cost British

:01:19.:01:23.

tourists have called the Zika virus in Florida. Finally the Times

:01:24.:01:28.

reports calls for family doctors to wait all of their patients in an

:01:29.:01:31.

attempt to tackle the obesity crisis. Let us kick-off, we have got

:01:32.:01:41.

the Telegraph, saying Boris plots to block Heathrow expansion, is that

:01:42.:01:44.

right? Ever read the headline was trying to get a story that wasn't. I

:01:45.:01:49.

don't think the words plot to block are relevant to the article, and

:01:50.:01:53.

other papers. I think plans to oppose that is absolutely right.

:01:54.:01:59.

Which we have always known. It is a statement of the obvious. Where he

:02:00.:02:04.

is is between a rock and a hard place, I'm going to lie down between

:02:05.:02:10.

a bulldozer if they start, and some people say bring it on and at the

:02:11.:02:16.

same time, rightly, he has got some degree of part out from the Prime

:02:17.:02:20.

Minister to say a bit and do a bit, but within certain confines of what

:02:21.:02:24.

he can and cannot do. This is the Telegraph thinking we have got to

:02:25.:02:29.

get eight story in anticipation of this, when the announcement comes.

:02:30.:02:34.

Is it news that Boris is opposing it? No. It is more asking the

:02:35.:02:41.

question, so what? Some of the papers saying, that he will not to

:02:42.:02:45.

the TV studios apparently and that is quite a long way from his

:02:46.:02:49.

original promise to block the bulldozers as we were hearing will

:02:50.:02:52.

lying down in front of the bulldozers so he may not make too

:02:53.:02:57.

much of a song and dance? That is funny, cast your mind back to the

:02:58.:03:05.

Sunday when he suddenly announced, he told the Prime Minister Mr

:03:06.:03:08.

Cameron that he was going to actually side with Brexit, I seem to

:03:09.:03:10.

remember then that he quickly said within 24 hours that he wouldn't

:03:11.:03:13.

tour the studios because he was on the Brexit side, what happened then?

:03:14.:03:19.

So Theresa may did say in her speech, to conference, not the

:03:20.:03:24.

Brexit one, the other one, on the Wednesday, that how long can Boris

:03:25.:03:31.

stay on message? I think, I think he can't help but to the studios, but

:03:32.:03:35.

interestingly, if you go back to the Boris plot to block Heathrow

:03:36.:03:41.

expansion, the title doesn't bury resemblance to the article, however,

:03:42.:03:45.

the Telegraph does talk about Mr Johnson opening a cabinet rift and

:03:46.:03:48.

there is no doubt that Theresa make apart from Brexit meaning Brexit,

:03:49.:03:56.

but of course, Justine Greening is against this as well. Jazz act

:03:57.:04:02.

Goldsmith is not dead to lie in front of a bulldozer but he has said

:04:03.:04:06.

that he would stand down, so that would be a majority that is already

:04:07.:04:10.

very small that would be reduced, so of course it is interesting that all

:04:11.:04:15.

of these ministers are going to have to ask permission, and that Mrs May

:04:16.:04:18.

is going to try. But this sounds like Brexit. Well, I think the rift

:04:19.:04:25.

already and the divisions on Brexit. I agree with you totally, Boris

:04:26.:04:29.

teasing capable of staying on message about this. -- Boris is not

:04:30.:04:35.

capable. I would just say that in the article, between 20 and 30 Tory

:04:36.:04:40.

MPs will vote against Heathrow expansion but the SNP are in favour.

:04:41.:04:45.

So let us say that she loses 23 of the majority achieving goes into

:04:46.:04:51.

minority because of 30 but 56 SNP MPs walk into the lobby with her. We

:04:52.:04:56.

are going to move on and we will find a much more about airport

:04:57.:05:00.

expansion tomorrow, Calais we need to talk about. In the Independent,

:05:01.:05:04.

they have got quite a dramatic picture? The Independent, the

:05:05.:05:09.

Guardian and the Daily Express, you have got quite a nice spread of the

:05:10.:05:13.

view, the Independent is very focused on the picture and well done

:05:14.:05:18.

them. It brings it into focus, this Ethiopian migrant saying goodbye. At

:05:19.:05:27.

the same time in the garden, you have got council sitting there

:05:28.:05:29.

saying we dare want to take these kids. And the Daily Express, doing

:05:30.:05:34.

what you'd expect the Daily Express to do, they refer to it on the front

:05:35.:05:38.

page when you go to Page five, Torrington in Devon, they have a

:05:39.:05:44.

historic 17th-century manor house where the migrant children will be

:05:45.:05:49.

based. The concern I have for this, my nation I hope around the world is

:05:50.:05:54.

known, when you are a kid and you are there, we can provide a home for

:05:55.:05:58.

you and a safe haven and somewhere where you can train, skin up and get

:05:59.:06:02.

work and build a life. I think that is one of the greatest things our

:06:03.:06:06.

country can do around the world. And if they are over 18, I did call them

:06:07.:06:13.

kids and I have no problem saying test them. I wouldn't say test them

:06:14.:06:17.

at 18 but give them a leeway and if there are 34-year-old blokes coming

:06:18.:06:22.

in, I don't blame the 34-year-old bloke but I do blame the immigration

:06:23.:06:25.

authorities. You have been reporting on this Calais story for France 24,

:06:26.:06:29.

what is the French perspective on all of this? There is great

:06:30.:06:35.

interest, at why these people really want so much to get to the UK. The

:06:36.:06:42.

dead want to be in France? Somehow change their minds. But yes, there

:06:43.:06:46.

are a number of reasons. It is much easier to find a job in United

:06:47.:06:50.

Kingdom, much lower unemployment. Quite if you are then speaking dish.

:06:51.:06:55.

Better benefits stop they used to be better benefits. There is a

:06:56.:07:00.

perception of that. And another thing, French law stipulates that at

:07:01.:07:05.

all times you must have your identification, Heidi documents,

:07:06.:07:08.

passport and identity card, as we have in France. This is not the case

:07:09.:07:13.

in Britain, said it is much easier to melt into the black economy and

:07:14.:07:17.

people do, in Britain. I agree with that. The Etihad got a story about

:07:18.:07:26.

the EU, and Canada. -- the FT have got a story. It is dead. We are

:07:27.:07:31.

witnessing something wonderful tonight. This is the first time that

:07:32.:07:37.

the FT since the 23rd of June have run a front page without their

:07:38.:07:47.

propaganda sheet on behalf of the remoaners. I can't believe it.

:07:48.:07:55.

Basically, the one wounds, part of Belgium, don't want this. 3.5

:07:56.:08:02.

million people in Belgium,. Which means Belgium has two Cena and the

:08:03.:08:06.

EU says no stopping it is Canada with 20 million people, they had a

:08:07.:08:10.

problem with the Greek saying anyway because of feta cheese. So they have

:08:11.:08:14.

got this issue of trying to get through this trade deal. Why is that

:08:15.:08:18.

relevant to Britain because of course people will say, if you can't

:08:19.:08:22.

crack it with 20 million in Canada for seven years and you are blocked

:08:23.:08:27.

by 3.5 million one wounds in Belgium, God help you. I would say

:08:28.:08:30.

with great respect to both wallow only and Canada, the fifth biggest

:08:31.:08:35.

economy on earth called the United Kingdom is a bit different. Let us

:08:36.:08:41.

see another FT story, which is China and Western resistance to China,

:08:42.:08:47.

blocking billions of pounds worth of acquisitions? It is interesting,

:08:48.:08:50.

moved by Brussels and Berlin is to thwart high-profile bids made by the

:08:51.:08:54.

Chinese were basically trying to take over lots of different

:08:55.:08:58.

companies in Germany, and Switzerland and elsewhere. And they

:08:59.:09:01.

have basically fallen foul of competition and also security

:09:02.:09:08.

concerns. So the Chinese, quite if you people in Germany and

:09:09.:09:11.

Switzerland and EU, is looking at these deals quite carefully. One of

:09:12.:09:16.

the proposed deals was to buy a hotel, that was actually very near,

:09:17.:09:20.

it calls security concerns because it was very near a naval base. It is

:09:21.:09:25.

interesting because it reminds me of Hinkley Point, some of the concerns,

:09:26.:09:30.

the cause of the Chinese and the French involvement, it was the

:09:31.:09:32.

Chinese aspect that was posing problems and Theresa May took her

:09:33.:09:36.

time, didn't just want to rubber-stamp it but it has gone

:09:37.:09:39.

through. Over my French holiday I spoke to a Frenchman who act she had

:09:40.:09:43.

been working on helping the Chinese with any clear staff and said that

:09:44.:09:48.

these concerns were actually completely unfounded. I think it is

:09:49.:09:51.

an issue of trust, China is coming out in the world and is only

:09:52.:09:55.

different ways in the last 20 years, and it is having to deal with being

:09:56.:09:59.

big globally as opposed to being big as a place where you make things

:10:00.:10:03.

cheaply, it is having to deal with all of the issues with being that

:10:04.:10:08.

come at the top table. One of them is trust. If you are not trusted it

:10:09.:10:11.

is incredibly difficult to get democracy is to say that you can buy

:10:12.:10:15.

my hotel next to the airbase, you can build my new car power station.

:10:16.:10:20.

You can build the electronics thing in Switzerland, because the local

:10:21.:10:24.

populace and the local vested interest say just a minute I don't

:10:25.:10:28.

trust you. Over a long time, if China are clever and they usually

:10:29.:10:32.

are, they will crack that but they are learning a lesson very harshly,

:10:33.:10:37.

that if you don't behave in a certain way over a period of time

:10:38.:10:41.

people don't trust you. OK, let us quickly go to the times, they are

:10:42.:10:46.

saying that GPs are urged to weigh all patients. Is that a good idea? A

:10:47.:10:52.

gym membership would be much better. Having lost a couple of stone over

:10:53.:10:56.

the summer and rather proud of it, I would say one of the reasons I did

:10:57.:10:59.

it was because of the pressure from the GP. So in a way it is a good

:11:00.:11:06.

idea. What I'm trying to say is that if a GP can use it and alarm you a

:11:07.:11:11.

bit I don't think it is a bad thing. I think bribery is better, lose

:11:12.:11:16.

weight, get something in return is better. It X 30 extra seconds for

:11:17.:11:21.

the GP to do this. I will time my GP to do this. Important thing about

:11:22.:11:28.

it, obesity is lined up with cancer and diabetes and heart disease. We

:11:29.:11:35.

are all smiling but move on one it is serious. Related to that, drink

:11:36.:11:41.

and a garden, women are drinking as much as men? Is that true? Well if

:11:42.:11:47.

you drink moderately and good wine to not go to have that problem. But

:11:48.:11:51.

I am astonished at how much women in this country, do win and drink

:11:52.:11:58.

heavily in France? No, we treat a lot of iffy yarn and other water is

:11:59.:12:06.

available. Do you drink as much as men? I could but I don't choose to.

:12:07.:12:11.

I'm not a quantity girl, I am a quality girl. Ayew quality or

:12:12.:12:19.

quantity? Quality, the big thing about it is it is staggeringly

:12:20.:12:28.

calorific. It is interesting to see, in this article, in 1914, it was,

:12:29.:12:36.

between 1891 and 1910 day work twice as likely to drink alcohol and more

:12:37.:12:40.

than three times as likely to have problems and now it is equal. So in

:12:41.:12:43.

a hundred years, women have got equality. You both go and have a

:12:44.:12:50.

drink after that. Thank you so much, cheers. Pure water I had to say,

:12:51.:12:54.

thank you to both of you and don't forget all of the front pages are

:12:55.:12:58.

online on the BBC website and you can read a detailed review of the

:12:59.:13:04.

paper, seven days a week. And you can see us with each edition of the

:13:05.:13:09.

papers posted, very shortly after we had finished. Thank you very much.

:13:10.:13:15.

Leisure has always to have you with us, goodbye for now.

:13:16.:13:20.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
