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


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


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


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


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


they rejected his dismissal of his findings that Russia interfered with


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


England chief economist that warnings of an economic downturn in


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


optimism regarding the British economy and news that Theresa May


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


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


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


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


Mystic make, Lord Digby Jones... LAUGHTER


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


50 and during the two years of negotiation and what happens


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


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


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


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


crisis. And he compared the forecasting performance to Michael


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


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


predicated on David Cameron triggering Article 50 the day after


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


necessarily pass to consume inflationary pressure. Lots of


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


by chief rejects trump doubts over Kremlin interference from the


election. We had Senator John McCain, armed services committee


Republican chairman, telling the intelligence committee when he took


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


the Russians interfered with the election, that delegitimise is his


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


vigorously against him. I do believe... INAUDIBLE


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


happened should have the courage and society should support the courage


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


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


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


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


started. Protecting identity, initial stages, very important,


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Gentlemen, please! LAUGHTER


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


about! Onesie! Peter Stringfellow... LAUGHTER


Just run the title, I can say goodbye! LAUGHTER
