Welcome to our look ahead at what the newspapers will be bringing us

:00:20.:00:26.

tomorrow. No muddled thinking tonight, please, we will be speaking

:00:27.:00:32.

truth to power... Crystal clear! Some of the front pages: the

:00:33.:00:38.

Financial Times, top spies in the US are on a collision course with

:00:39.:00:41.

President-elect Donald Trump, two weeks before his inauguration, after

:00:42.:00:45.

they rejected his dismissal of his findings that Russia interfered with

:00:46.:00:50.

the election. Sex assault campaign and rates survivor Jill Saward has

:00:51.:00:56.

died at the age of 51, the newspaper calls her bravest of the brave. The

:00:57.:01:01.

mail also pays tribute to Jill, and leads on a story that civil servants

:01:02.:01:05.

working on Brexit have asked for a pay rise due to unsustainable

:01:06.:01:09.

pressure. Investigation into new homes built on flood plains, saying

:01:10.:01:13.

it has found that 1200 properties have been built in what it calls

:01:14.:01:18.

danger areas. The Telegraph's top story, the admission by the Bank of

:01:19.:01:20.

England chief economist that warnings of an economic downturn in

:01:21.:01:25.

the wake of the Brexit vote were wrong. The Times also leads on

:01:26.:01:31.

optimism regarding the British economy and news that Theresa May

:01:32.:01:34.

will visit Donald Trump next month after her two most trusted aides

:01:35.:01:38.

began what it calls a secret mission to build bridges. The express leads

:01:39.:01:42.

on the six-day run of highs of the FTSE 100. We will start with the

:01:43.:01:49.

times, Britain has the world top economy after Brexit, starting with

:01:50.:01:52.

Mystic make, Lord Digby Jones... LAUGHTER

:01:53.:01:58.

You said, Brexit is where we should be, it is going to be amazing and

:01:59.:02:02.

wonderful and so far, you may be proven right. I hate to say I told

:02:03.:02:11.

you so. Taking you back to early June... Not too far back, because we

:02:12.:02:16.

only have 15 minutes. LAUGHTER The day after "Brexit", the world

:02:17.:02:20.

was going to end, death of the first-born, all these economist, the

:02:21.:02:23.

Bank of England, all of them saying the same thing. I wanted to stay in

:02:24.:02:32.

a reformed Europe, I am no swivel eyed Brexiteer, but I would prefer

:02:33.:02:38.

to have stayed in a reformed Europe, I am not an ideologue, but I could

:02:39.:02:44.

not see it at the time. The British economy has been really resilient.

:02:45.:02:57.

Fundamentals of the British economy are actually in a good place.

:02:58.:03:01.

Inflation will rise. This is a snapshot, Britain has the

:03:02.:03:19.

world's top economy after "Brexit", six months after "Brexit". Business

:03:20.:03:29.

activity has hit a 17 month high. I want the best for Britain and all

:03:30.:03:37.

who sail in her, say a week is a long time in politics, this is just

:03:38.:03:44.

the brilliant. To Armageddon...? To what happens when we trigger Article

:03:45.:03:48.

50 and during the two years of negotiation and what happens

:03:49.:03:51.

thereafter, a lot of potential shocks may come further down the

:03:52.:04:03.

road. The reason why this story has made the headlines, not just the

:04:04.:04:07.

figures, the chief economist of the Bank of England, who had predicted

:04:08.:04:12.

doom and gloom, he admits that maybe, is industry, economics, is in

:04:13.:04:17.

crisis. And he compared the forecasting performance to Michael

:04:18.:04:28.

Fish's infamous... This is where he said they -- there would not be a

:04:29.:04:36.

hurricane. But they bring up this point. Dire predictions were

:04:37.:04:48.

predicated on David Cameron triggering Article 50 the day after

:04:49.:04:52.

the vote. They were not, a lot of this was alarmist, to frighten the

:04:53.:04:56.

British voter in devoting to remain, a lot of this had a political

:04:57.:05:01.

undercurrent. Some of it was economics. Where we are going to be

:05:02.:05:06.

in violent agreement is... I would say three to five years, I would not

:05:07.:05:10.

say six months, years "Brexit" negotiations, this is going to be

:05:11.:05:14.

choppy water. The problem we have as a nation at the moment is you have

:05:15.:05:19.

the EU remains propaganda sheet, the Financial Times... Tried to destroy

:05:20.:05:28.

it that stage. Trying to rip it up? Any time you get bad news, it is

:05:29.:05:38.

always... The fact is, so far, the doom mongers are wrong. For now.

:05:39.:05:43.

From the Bank of England they say, business as usual, the spending

:05:44.:05:47.

power in peoples pockets was not materially dented, that is a key

:05:48.:05:51.

point, because... You don't hear the word sorry. Interest rates are

:05:52.:05:58.

historically low. People still spending on the never-never,

:05:59.:06:00.

big-ticket items, the cars. Very crucial, crucial to remember that

:06:01.:06:06.

people still have money in their pockets. Why will they rise, because

:06:07.:06:19.

the pound has collapsed. No, that is the issue where you are both wrong.

:06:20.:06:30.

I spend money, I live in Britain. If you actually have... Through a

:06:31.:06:36.

porous change rate... The pound collapsing... It does not

:06:37.:06:39.

necessarily pass to consume inflationary pressure. Lots of

:06:40.:06:43.

people are saying that it may, including the chief economist... So

:06:44.:06:47.

often the middle person absorbs the profit. Gentleman, if I can come in,

:06:48.:06:51.

if I can come near. You have got your gavel. You are going to need

:06:52.:06:58.

it! Companies have absorbed the shock, they have hedged, the

:06:59.:07:02.

prediction is by many that they will not be able to hedge for ever. I

:07:03.:07:07.

agree but there is another point. They will not be able to do it

:07:08.:07:10.

forever, I agree, but the other point is that there is a whole world

:07:11.:07:14.

out there and if you have a component suppliers saying prices go

:07:15.:07:18.

up because of currency, go and find another supplier. We will end that

:07:19.:07:24.

discussion there. Thank you. Financial Times, financial Times, US

:07:25.:07:29.

by chief rejects trump doubts over Kremlin interference from the

:07:30.:07:35.

election. We had Senator John McCain, armed services committee

:07:36.:07:38.

Republican chairman, telling the intelligence committee when he took

:07:39.:07:47.

evidence from James Clapper, and Admiral Michael Rogers, head of the

:07:48.:07:49.

national security agency, and each of them, both pretty angry.

:07:50.:08:02.

Seeming to prefer the advice and evidence of Julian Assange to his

:08:03.:08:08.

own intelligence officers and they are doubling down, as the American

:08:09.:08:11.

say, in their belief that the Kremlin interfered at every level,

:08:12.:08:15.

regularly, and that this is a form of warfare. Lloyd Jones... He has

:08:16.:08:23.

two double down, if he admits, if he says there is clear evidence that

:08:24.:08:26.

the Russians interfered with the election, that delegitimise is his

:08:27.:08:31.

job, or at least it delegitimise is him in that job. -- delegitimises.

:08:32.:08:37.

The process by which he got it. I agree, the answer to this by Henry

:08:38.:08:41.

is very good, and where the problem Trump has worked in into... --

:08:42.:08:47.

worked himself into... I understand this new paradigms, constant tweets,

:08:48.:08:50.

he is connecting with the people who voted for him, making it clearly

:08:51.:08:54.

understood where he stands on many issues, a very good example would be

:08:55.:08:57.

that this man has not yet been elected and yet he has forward to

:08:58.:09:02.

say, we are not going to invest in Mexico, we will do it in Detroit.

:09:03.:09:08.

1000 jobs saved in Indiana by an air conditioning factory. These tweets

:09:09.:09:10.

are connecting with the very people who elected him, but the downside,

:09:11.:09:16.

if he's not careful, is of his own volition he's been forced into

:09:17.:09:20.

positions from which we cannot grow back. This one... It is one thing

:09:21.:09:27.

when you put out a view and a company response, it is another game

:09:28.:09:31.

when you take side internationally, with rather unsavoury figures. On

:09:32.:09:38.

that basis, where Henry... Not that nail on the head, he's in charge of

:09:39.:09:42.

the two agencies. -- knocked the nail on the head. They will leak

:09:43.:09:51.

vigorously against him. I do believe... INAUDIBLE

:09:52.:09:53.

Going back to the Daily Mail, the picture there are, Jill Saward, who

:09:54.:10:04.

has died at the age of 51, she was attacked, sexually assaulted, rigged

:10:05.:10:08.

in 1986, the first British rate victim to actually waive anonymity.

:10:09.:10:15.

-- raped in 1986. To highlight not just what she went through but also

:10:16.:10:20.

to put victims at the centre of any future prosecutions. All about views

:10:21.:10:28.

and ideas, takes second place to the grieving that the family must be

:10:29.:10:32.

feeling, 51, brain haemorrhage, this is awful. Even more sad of course on

:10:33.:10:37.

a national level that it has taken her death to bring this up to the

:10:38.:10:42.

point where the Daily Mail are saying in their headline, what a

:10:43.:10:45.

disgrace that she never received an honour. Whether they are right or

:10:46.:10:49.

wrong, whatever the honour may be, take out the word honour and use the

:10:50.:10:52.

word recognition because actually what she did... The establishment,

:10:53.:10:58.

the right word? Certainly, the judicial system, anyway, tended to

:10:59.:11:02.

be on the side of the accused, not on the side of the victim. During

:11:03.:11:10.

the period of life on Mars, where the police, the judiciary did not

:11:11.:11:16.

pay attention. What she did, because daughter, virgin, 21, raped, and she

:11:17.:11:22.

came out of a September X into system that was saying, the quiet,

:11:23.:11:26.

and she said, I will not, this is my name, this is my photograph and this

:11:27.:11:29.

is what happened to me. -- vicar's daughter. And people to then this

:11:30.:11:34.

happened should have the courage and society should support the courage

:11:35.:11:38.

to do that. -- came out of a system that was saying, you be quiet, and

:11:39.:11:43.

she said, I will not. We have seen the bravery of the footballers that

:11:44.:11:47.

have come out, victims who have come out, with Jimmy Savile, this is

:11:48.:11:51.

where putting the victim at the centre of the case, this is where it

:11:52.:11:58.

started. Protecting identity, initial stages, very important,

:11:59.:12:01.

tough enough for men to do it now, when they are talking about what

:12:02.:12:04.

happened 20 odd years ago, but this woman did it in 1986, the country

:12:05.:12:08.

with very different back there. Tesco says the John the band...

:12:09.:12:14.

Lloyd Jones, you have got your pyjamas on, I know that you sneak

:12:15.:12:20.

down... -- Tesco says that pyjamas may be banned. I only wish they did

:12:21.:12:25.

not take the photograph they have of not take the photograph they have of

:12:26.:12:28.

me... LAUGHTER I am convinced in my indecision, at

:12:29.:12:33.

one level, they are trying to say, there is a standard here, whatever

:12:34.:12:36.

that standard may be, or the benefit of everyone, not just Tesco, there

:12:37.:12:45.

are a few standards, we... We do not want to see Digby wandering around

:12:46.:12:54.

in his onesie... That is a site! The problem is, we do live in a free

:12:55.:12:59.

world, and as long as... Within the bounds of decency. If you want to

:13:00.:13:04.

wear your onesie ads Tesco at three in the morning, why not! It is not

:13:05.:13:08.

the kind of thing that I would do, and I have never seen people

:13:09.:13:10.

wandering around in their onesie or their pyjamas, but there is lots and

:13:11.:13:15.

lots of supermarkets which may say, Tesco does not want you, we will

:13:16.:13:21.

take your business. It is the old idea between freedom on one hand,

:13:22.:13:27.

freedom on one hand, human decency, and... Time, time! LAUGHTER

:13:28.:13:30.

Gentlemen, please! LAUGHTER

:13:31.:13:43.

You are avoiding it! Just the thought of what you are talking

:13:44.:13:49.

about! Onesie! Peter Stringfellow... LAUGHTER

:13:50.:13:55.

Just run the title, I can say goodbye! LAUGHTER

:13:56.:13:59.
