Hugh short-changed you with the sport there! Welcome to our look

:00:19.:00:24.

ahead to what the papers will bring us tomorrow. Michael Booker, deputy

:00:25.:00:31.

editor of the express and Joan Bakewell. These are the front pages.

:00:32.:00:39.

Civilians evacuated from rebel held areas of Aleppo.

:00:40.:00:48.

The Financial Times reports the EU is considering rule changes which

:00:49.:00:54.

would hit the City of London after Brexit. More than 600 primary

:00:55.:00:59.

schools in England have failed to reach their sap exam targets. The

:01:00.:01:05.

telegraph says the UK will be presented with a ?50 billion bill

:01:06.:01:09.

when it leaves the EU. The Daily Mail says that fewer than a fifth of

:01:10.:01:13.

GP surgeries in England of out of hours appointments. The Mirror

:01:14.:01:18.

reports the sentencing of a man who planted a bomb on a bus and

:01:19.:01:23.

threatened to blow up the Queen. And the Express Ports cleaning your

:01:24.:01:27.

teeth might help avoid arthritis. The express looking at the

:01:28.:01:35.

ramifications of Brexit. Therese eight is in Brussels, meeting other

:01:36.:01:39.

leaders from the European Union and then excluded from the dinner while

:01:40.:01:43.

they discuss how they might approach Brexit. The telegraph says the EU

:01:44.:01:49.

hands Britain a ?50 billion Brexit bill. That bill will be presented

:01:50.:01:56.

the moment we trigger Article 50. It will be next March and we will get a

:01:57.:02:00.

bill for ?50 billion because that is what they would like us to have. We

:02:01.:02:06.

owe them outstanding pensions liabilities? Loan guarantees and

:02:07.:02:11.

spending on UK-based projects? Iain Duncan Smith is across this. He uses

:02:12.:02:16.

real diplomatic language, he says it is a dreadful joke. It is going to

:02:17.:02:25.

be pretty acrimonious as that is how we begin. It does seem to be sabre

:02:26.:02:31.

rattling from the EU. There are things point scoring that goes on.

:02:32.:02:38.

Therese isn't getting her dinner tonight. The EU will be poking us

:02:39.:02:41.

with sticks until we trigger Article 50. That is when the decisions not

:02:42.:02:49.

to be made. They say these are all payments we have agreed to pay

:02:50.:02:53.

already, things we are liable for. Iain Duncan Smith takes the opposite

:02:54.:02:58.

view. We will get a lot of toing and froing, stories like this that will

:02:59.:03:03.

accept the EU, they will keep raising the stakes and make

:03:04.:03:07.

themselves look stronger. The FT has other financial woes ahead. The EU

:03:08.:03:15.

plan to curb city's Euro clearing. That is where a promise of a

:03:16.:03:19.

transaction becomes an actual transfer of the money. It is very

:03:20.:03:21.

lucrative and takes place here often. London is a huge centre for

:03:22.:03:28.

it. The city were worried because they were very much for staying in.

:03:29.:03:32.

They like to report these sorts of stories. The problems that could

:03:33.:03:39.

happen to the City, come Brexit. This is really about Brexit but the

:03:40.:03:43.

people in the euro zone. Definitely trying to poke Britain. Bad

:03:44.:03:50.

repercussions for leaving the EU, they are saying, even though this is

:03:51.:03:53.

really part of the negotiation. I suspect the French are behind this.

:03:54.:04:01.

The chief negotiator, he is French and he suggested previously the

:04:02.:04:05.

Brexit negotiation should take place in French. Why would they want to

:04:06.:04:12.

make it easy for us? I like Fred and they don't speak French at any

:04:13.:04:17.

conferences, and that sets the tone. -- they like French. The Euro

:04:18.:04:26.

clearing has led an attempt a few years ago to do this and the French

:04:27.:04:31.

are really angry with us. We have to mention Aleppo tonight at the

:04:32.:04:35.

evacuations of a thousand people so far, should be about 3000 I think by

:04:36.:04:40.

now. Four years of fighting and the rebel held part of the city has

:04:41.:04:47.

finally fallen. It is terrible. This is a battle that is coming to an end

:04:48.:04:52.

and there is no formula for how a battle ends, it just does in

:04:53.:04:55.

slaughter and chaos. There is no formula for it, history doesn't give

:04:56.:05:02.

us any template, except suffering. And we are witnessing it. We can

:05:03.:05:08.

only watch. I don't know why we aren't sending help and humanitarian

:05:09.:05:11.

aid. I would have thought that was the least we could do. I don't think

:05:12.:05:16.

adding more arms into the situation is a good thing but we should be in

:05:17.:05:20.

there with as much as we could possibly do and I don't get any

:05:21.:05:24.

feeling we're doing it. You get the impression that logistically that

:05:25.:05:29.

any claim that goes anywhere near that is liable to be blown up. Boris

:05:30.:05:34.

Johnson said that earlier and he has a big decision to make if we take

:05:35.:05:38.

part in anything like that. There is horrible suffering and you can see,

:05:39.:05:43.

Britain, America, we are all terribly scared of what the Russians

:05:44.:05:49.

will do. But we have drones. What is interesting is that everyone says

:05:50.:05:54.

how terrible it is. Why not at this stage, say, we could collaborate on

:05:55.:05:58.

humanitarian aid. They should be some overarching sympathy which

:05:59.:06:03.

says, Assad has won this battle. We know that. We are dealing with

:06:04.:06:11.

madmen, though. Humanitarian aid should be... Madmen are quite

:06:12.:06:15.

skilful at negotiating their reputations. He has turned up

:06:16.:06:18.

looking very smart, saying, I am pleased the rebellion is over. You

:06:19.:06:23.

would think somebody could bring together a humanitarian effort but I

:06:24.:06:27.

don't see it. These buses which looking pretty good condition, they

:06:28.:06:31.

have provided by President Assad to take civilians, wounded, and some

:06:32.:06:37.

fighters to other rebel held areas, it is bizarre. They say after four

:06:38.:06:44.

years of brutal sees adding quotes, it says they are being rescued but

:06:45.:06:47.

we don't know what sort of future these people are going to have. We

:06:48.:06:51.

don't know where they are going, more uncertainty for them and the

:06:52.:06:56.

people left in Aleppo. Back to the FT, Janet is expecting it. James

:06:57.:07:05.

Murdoch dismisses regulatory fears over Sky's ?11.7 billion bid for

:07:06.:07:11.

Sky. Why would we be concerned about this? A lot of people are. The

:07:12.:07:17.

Labour Party are saying we need to look at plurality of people owning

:07:18.:07:21.

too much full . The National Union of Journalists

:07:22.:07:38.

are very upset, they say we should wait until, if there is a Leveson

:07:39.:07:43.

enquiries number two, until that. People are very upset about it.

:07:44.:07:48.

Vince Cable looking at it when he was a government says it is not in

:07:49.:07:52.

the public interest. People are rightly worried about it. This is

:07:53.:07:57.

globalisation, the coming together of diverse interests in one

:07:58.:08:03.

particular discipline and it consolidates until soon there will

:08:04.:08:07.

only be a few global players and what leading media a multiplicity of

:08:08.:08:18.

players. So you can get a diversity of views. This will be one company

:08:19.:08:25.

which is not good for general discourse. I think this will get

:08:26.:08:29.

referred to Ofcom and I think it may well get referred the CMS, to make a

:08:30.:08:38.

judgment on it. Yes, Michael does Sky papers as well and Joan also

:08:39.:08:45.

appears on landscape artist of the year on Sky so we don't abide

:08:46.:08:50.

sharing! I can't speak for them! -- we don't mind sharing.

:08:51.:08:59.

The curriculum has been made more difficult, tennis children take when

:09:00.:09:09.

they are ten or 11. -- tests. Too much testing and rivalry. Is your

:09:10.:09:15.

child as good as a child? We live in a highly educational competitive

:09:16.:09:25.

environment and it is no wonder children are having nervous

:09:26.:09:28.

breakdowns and complaining they have depression and issues when they are

:09:29.:09:30.

children. They should be having a childhood. You hear of increasing

:09:31.:09:38.

amounts of children who have anxiety and are going into high school

:09:39.:09:42.

worried their exam results are good enough to compete with other

:09:43.:09:46.

children. It does seem from my point of view, 25 years ago, we didn't

:09:47.:09:54.

have this kind of testing and we look forward to the exams at the end

:09:55.:10:00.

of the year that was it. What about the top university, Bristol, lowest

:10:01.:10:05.

entry grades. School students. -- lowers entry grades for state school

:10:06.:10:14.

students. Almost 40% of its undergraduates have attended

:10:15.:10:19.

independent schools and Bristol university wants to remedy it by

:10:20.:10:23.

offering five places to eat a Bristol school for children who

:10:24.:10:27.

would not normally have achieved an entrance. I think that is the

:10:28.:10:30.

beginning of quite an interesting move. Bristol is a very hip city,

:10:31.:10:37.

very lively, very community minded. I think that could be a very good

:10:38.:10:43.

move. A very sought after university. Talk about this story,

:10:44.:10:47.

the Daily Express, brush teeth to beat arthritis. Headline of the day!

:10:48.:10:56.

It is the simple ones people are interested in. This research has

:10:57.:11:01.

been done in Baltimore. Studying thousands of cases with rheumatoid

:11:02.:11:05.

arthritis and discovered there is... Many of them have gum disease also.

:11:06.:11:14.

Particular bacteria, a 36 letter two word bacteria, pretty long, I can't

:11:15.:11:19.

pronounce it! This creates an information and attacks the immune

:11:20.:11:22.

system and that is where it goes in the joints. It needs a bit more work

:11:23.:11:26.

doing as part of the research but if you get rid of everything out of

:11:27.:11:29.

your mouth, everything else works a bit better. I like saying to a small

:11:30.:11:35.

child, unless you brush your teeth, you will get arthritis in 60 years'

:11:36.:11:40.

time! Linked to heart disease, things like that. Brush your teeth,

:11:41.:11:47.

says many ills. Two minutes of brushing tonight, please! Let's go

:11:48.:11:50.

back to the telegraph, been confusion leads to drop in

:11:51.:11:55.

recycling. How difficult is it a sore jaw wine bottles from your bean

:11:56.:12:03.

tins? I could never sorted out because I live in Camden and they

:12:04.:12:07.

keep changing the rules. People are mixing the wrong things in the wrong

:12:08.:12:10.

places and putting them in the wrong place. I like the idea here, mixing

:12:11.:12:17.

bones from beat in with the recycling and trying to save food

:12:18.:12:22.

encrusted cardboard, which is causing tonnes of damage. Cardboard

:12:23.:12:26.

is cardboard, isn't it worth recycling? I have trouble and some

:12:27.:12:32.

extra stickers have appeared on my bins recently so I think I have been

:12:33.:12:39.

doing it wrong. Good event to help you like that! Recycling stations

:12:40.:12:43.

are rejecting 15% of recycled waste from what they did previously and

:12:44.:12:47.

they said there is increased competition amongst these recycling

:12:48.:12:50.

places so they want a better standard of rubbish. I think people

:12:51.:12:56.

have too much to think about. I have to commend my local authority, made

:12:57.:13:01.

it very easy for us. It is probably posh! Exactly, look at me, listen to

:13:02.:13:04.

be! That is it. Don't forget all the front pages

:13:05.:13:16.

are online on the BBC News website where you can read

:13:17.:13:19.

a detailed review.
