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

:00:12.:00:15.

With me are the Sun's deputy Head of Sport,

:00:16.:00:18.

Martin Lipton and Martin Bentham, home affairs Editor at the Evening

:00:19.:00:21.

Tomorrow's front pages starting with...

:00:22.:00:25.

The Observer says the Prime Minister is under pressure this weekend

:00:26.:00:29.

to announce an emergency NHS rescue plan to parliament.

:00:30.:00:33.

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Theresa May says the Government has

:00:34.:00:38.

a duty to step in and tackle injustice.

:00:39.:00:42.

The Sunday Times leads with Britain's former ambassador

:00:43.:00:44.

to the EU, Ivan Rogers, meeting with David Cameron before

:00:45.:00:47.

Christmas to warn him that Theresa May was botching Brexit.

:00:48.:00:54.

The Sunday Express says the man set to become Donald Trump's ambassador

:00:55.:00:57.

to the EU has revealed that he supported Brexit

:00:58.:00:59.

The Mail on Sunday features Israeli officials allegedly caught making

:01:00.:01:06.

a vow to 'take down' Boris Johnson's Foreign Office deputy.

:01:07.:01:12.

And The Sun on Sunday feature a story of a man,

:01:13.:01:15.

who was born a girl 20 years ago, being

:01:16.:01:17.

Right. OK let us again. Martin, could you begin for us this time? We

:01:18.:01:36.

have two Martins. We must not get confused. Theresa May in the Sunday

:01:37.:01:40.

Telegraph, setting out her vision for a shared society, and not the

:01:41.:01:44.

big society, which was the tactic of David Cameron. It is a society,

:01:45.:01:49.

unlike the famous quote from Margaret Thatcher although slightly

:01:50.:01:53.

misinterpreted. A big defining.... She said there was no such thing as

:01:54.:01:59.

society. Yes. Everyone is focusing on Brexit but from the point of view

:02:00.:02:03.

of the Prime Minister, her big focus is this idea of trying to present

:02:04.:02:07.

herself and reposition the Tory policy as a party for the ordinary

:02:08.:02:12.

person, a person who was struggling a little with the difficult changes

:02:13.:02:16.

in the workplace and globalisation and so forth and saying here is a

:02:17.:02:22.

government that can intervene and fix broken markets. She talks about

:02:23.:02:26.

promoting American Greste. She talks about education in that respect.

:02:27.:02:32.

Building more houses, addressing the how to sing shortage for people

:02:33.:02:37.

bringing house prices down. All of these different interventionist

:02:38.:02:40.

policies she is alluding to it this stage in her article for the Sunday

:02:41.:02:46.

terra graft. -- Telegraph. She is setting out a big reform agenda over

:02:47.:02:52.

the coming weeks and months. I think this is what she wants her legacy to

:02:53.:02:56.

be rather than Brexit. It is a challenge now to see whether or not

:02:57.:03:02.

she can deliver this. It was not a traditional conservative message.

:03:03.:03:07.

This is pitching a big tent on what should always historically be seen

:03:08.:03:19.

as the labour territory. He used to try and reclaim Tory territory and

:03:20.:03:23.

to move the centre ground on his way. One could argue relatively

:03:24.:03:26.

successfully. Theresa May is now trying to do it on her terms. It was

:03:27.:03:30.

interesting, however, there was talk in this article about, also about

:03:31.:03:36.

Brexit and they call it the quiet revolution by those who thought the

:03:37.:03:39.

system had been stacked against them for too long. This is the central

:03:40.:03:43.

crux, really, they are trying to set out a message which I am not

:03:44.:03:47.

entirely sure comes across particularly strongly or

:03:48.:03:51.

sufficiently well but the premises there that she wants to be seen as

:03:52.:03:57.

someone who understands the concerns and can to some degree and so them.

:03:58.:04:06.

Whether or not she can... There are two things here. An allegation that

:04:07.:04:12.

she is trying to say that the Tory party is not about what it used to

:04:13.:04:16.

stand for, it is about something different. And as you were just

:04:17.:04:19.

saying, Martin, of cores are until now the force of globalisation in a

:04:20.:04:23.

sense, the received political wisdom is that this is how the world is

:04:24.:04:28.

evolving we need to go with it and work with it and you need to adapt.

:04:29.:04:32.

She is saying actually there are things that government can do to

:04:33.:04:35.

help and to mitigate some of those big changes. Moving on. Brexit. The

:04:36.:04:43.

elite story in the Sunday Times. Sir Ivanka Rogers who just quit as an

:04:44.:04:51.

ambassador. Apparently he had secret meetings with David Cameron before

:04:52.:04:57.

Christmas. What was said? They are not secret any more. It is

:04:58.:05:01.

interesting. There has been a schism which has widened into a genuine

:05:02.:05:07.

ructions between Theresa May and David Cameron. Ivanka Rogers who, as

:05:08.:05:18.

we know, quit in high dudgeon from his role as EU ambassador. That was

:05:19.:05:21.

Cameron before Christmas and offered some aggressive warnings about the

:05:22.:05:27.

way Brexit negotiations or more negotiations were taking place.

:05:28.:05:32.

Speaking about the fear of mutually assured destruction and the biggest

:05:33.:05:37.

issue is whether we have an orderly or disorderly Brexit and were

:05:38.:05:41.

heading for a car crash, he told David Cameron. David Cameron

:05:42.:05:44.

apparently privately shares those views the Brexit will hurt the

:05:45.:05:47.

economy. We should not be surprised by that, given his stance in the

:05:48.:05:53.

vote. I suspect that people in the inner circle around Theresa May will

:05:54.:05:57.

be particularly angry and feel that once again she has been undermined

:05:58.:06:03.

to a degree by her predecessor. I don't think they will be too say

:06:04.:06:07.

that seeing it come out, either, because it puts a pile of pressure,

:06:08.:06:13.

it keeps the pressure on those who are still in favour of Brexit. I

:06:14.:06:18.

suppose so although I think this is a debate that wants to go away. A

:06:19.:06:24.

very swift appointment of Sir Ivanka Rogers as a replacement to Tim

:06:25.:06:27.

Burrow was obviously designed to try and close the story down because it

:06:28.:06:32.

seemed like a 24 hour was story, to be frankly. A diplomat that no-one

:06:33.:06:41.

heard of leaves in a flurry. An analysis of the e-mail... So this

:06:42.:06:48.

brings it back in a sense that it is perhaps not very helpful. On the

:06:49.:06:53.

other hand, as you say, it perhaps reinforces the view that actually he

:06:54.:06:58.

was not, he was not independent in a sense. It was a very political

:06:59.:07:03.

position. But maybe David Cameron encouraged him... That will be the

:07:04.:07:10.

allegation. Talking about people who go to Europe to native. If that is

:07:11.:07:15.

their argument, perhaps the Brexiteers will be trying to push on

:07:16.:07:20.

point to Sir Ivanka and others. Continuing with Brexit, I'm afraid,

:07:21.:07:25.

it is an interesting story. The UK at risk of a trade catastrophe. This

:07:26.:07:32.

comes from a Canadian gentlemen. You mentioned earlier that this man is a

:07:33.:07:36.

Canadian and he often says what he thinks. Generally speaking Canadians

:07:37.:07:43.

are polite. However this chap, what has he been saying? He was part the

:07:44.:07:50.

negotiation team to deal between Canada and the EU which took nearly

:07:51.:07:54.

a decade to negotiate. He suggests that there is a danger of a

:07:55.:08:00.

catastrophic Brexit because of the government ignoring the concerns of

:08:01.:08:04.

trade experts. We had one man saying we have had too much of experts...

:08:05.:08:09.

The thing is, however, the observer takes a stand because of its stand

:08:10.:08:14.

on Brexit. Conversely if you look at the Sunday Express you have the

:08:15.:08:20.

newly appointed potentially newly appointed US ambassador to the EU,

:08:21.:08:24.

there seems to be incredibly excited at the prospect of Brexit. What that

:08:25.:08:31.

means as both sides are looking for people to bolster their views. The

:08:32.:08:36.

point of this Canadian man is that it is the length of time that it

:08:37.:08:41.

takes. Look at the problem can ever faced. They take an awful lot of...

:08:42.:08:45.

And that in itself is a dangerous business. There is some

:08:46.:08:50.

justification in that but it is not a simple thing to get a trade deal

:08:51.:08:54.

on the government itself has indicated there may have to be a

:08:55.:08:58.

transitional deal with the EU. Of course, achieving a true that

:08:59.:09:01.

additional bill is also problematic. Some of his warnings could be

:09:02.:09:07.

justified. I'm not sure that his allegations about the inattention of

:09:08.:09:10.

the government is valid I think the government is well aware of that

:09:11.:09:14.

risk and doing its best to deal with it. Whether they can not is another

:09:15.:09:18.

issue altogether and we will have to see what happens over the coming

:09:19.:09:22.

couple of years. Continuing on. The Mail on Sunday has a curious

:09:23.:09:27.

complicated story but it has the scoop on its hands here. An Israeli

:09:28.:09:32.

Embassy official apparently targeting, saying they wanted to

:09:33.:09:37.

take down the Foreign Minister, a junior minister in the Foreign

:09:38.:09:45.

Office department. They have filmed at... What a curious business. I

:09:46.:09:50.

think this is the story of the night. You have a diplomat from the

:09:51.:09:56.

Israeli embassy saying that because Alan Duncan, the number two in the

:09:57.:09:59.

Foreign Office is no truth pro- Palestinian views, saying at this

:10:00.:10:05.

dinner where he was recorded overtly by somebody who didn't realise he

:10:06.:10:08.

was a journalist, suggesting, in fact wanting somebody else to take

:10:09.:10:15.

down Sir Alan Duncan and, indeed, other MPs who were deemed to be not

:10:16.:10:19.

favourable to Israeli interests. That is quite a statement and

:10:20.:10:24.

Israeli Ambassador apparently has now run up Alan Duncan and

:10:25.:10:27.

apologised for this and said that the comments were completely

:10:28.:10:31.

unacceptable. He put out a statement which we should emphasise that they

:10:32.:10:36.

have said. The transcript on the tape is at least somewhat accurate

:10:37.:10:41.

in terms of what was said. It is interesting. I think there will be

:10:42.:10:45.

so difficult conversations for the aid to another junior minister who

:10:46.:10:50.

appears to have been the second party in these conversations. We

:10:51.:10:55.

must be very cautious about that. We do not have independent

:10:56.:10:58.

verification. But she will be asked to give more information about what

:10:59.:11:03.

was and wasn't said at the dinner. But there is clearly... The

:11:04.:11:10.

Arab-Israeli issue remains at the heart of politics in this country

:11:11.:11:13.

and probably always will because there are two very divergences

:11:14.:11:20.

views. Diplomacy is taking a great turn. We have an Israeli wanting to

:11:21.:11:23.

take down our minister. You have Donald Trump telling us to an point

:11:24.:11:29.

as ambassador. We have the EU and battered resigning in high dudgeon.

:11:30.:11:32.

Diplomacy is to be quiet behind-the-scenes and at the moment

:11:33.:11:37.

it is spectacular. The Sunday Times has a picture of a young lady on the

:11:38.:11:43.

front page and a chap with a very alarming looking rifle. British

:11:44.:11:48.

bride of Isis chief. Can you explain this one to us? They are talking

:11:49.:11:54.

about a white American convert who was a leading figure in Isis who

:11:55.:11:58.

married a British woman and went out to Syria, she divorced him and came

:11:59.:12:05.

back. It is talking here, a fairly straightforward story in that sense.

:12:06.:12:09.

It illustrates, albeit that she has let them come back. It does

:12:10.:12:15.

illustrate this continuing danger of British people, women as well as men

:12:16.:12:32.

People from, who you would never People from, who you would never

:12:33.:12:36.

think are going to go out there. This particular chap, we were

:12:37.:12:41.

talking about the man, he came from in a very prominent American

:12:42.:12:44.

military family, apparently, according to the story. Quite an

:12:45.:12:50.

amazing background he has. It does seem bizarre that somebody who

:12:51.:12:53.

appears to have had his roots embedded deep in the American

:12:54.:12:58.

military structure, an American family and obviously he has had

:12:59.:13:01.

plenty of involvement in the army, should end up being a key Isis

:13:02.:13:06.

recruiter. It is remarkable. But then again, a number of the sort of

:13:07.:13:15.

Western born Jihad as, you would never have imagined from their

:13:16.:13:18.

background that they would end up being... Quite a few converts go.

:13:19.:13:22.

That is one of the things that happens. Of course there are people

:13:23.:13:25.

who come from those type of backgrounds. They started off from

:13:26.:13:33.

white middle-class backgrounds and convert and become far more radical

:13:34.:13:40.

than the average person. Now I think this is very much one for you to

:13:41.:13:44.

talk about, Martin Lipton. Many pictures are round of Wayne Rooney

:13:45.:13:51.

is all over the back pages. Why? It is a good story. He's got his 249th

:13:52.:14:00.

goal for Manchester United which means he is the joint record

:14:01.:14:04.

goalscorer. A few months ago he scored his 50th goal for England so

:14:05.:14:08.

here's the record goalscorer for England. In both case he took the

:14:09.:14:13.

record that had been set by Sir Bobby Charlton who was there

:14:14.:14:16.

watching the match today. I think it is fitting that Wayne Rooney should

:14:17.:14:21.

do it at Old Trafford in a home game rather than away in some far reaches

:14:22.:14:25.

of Europe which it may have been the other week when they played in the

:14:26.:14:28.

Ukraine. He has been the dominant English footballer of the last

:14:29.:14:31.

decade. We may argue, well, he should have achieved more in did not

:14:32.:14:36.

achieve what he could have been and is not a superstar. He nevertheless

:14:37.:14:41.

has been England was the best player. A record goalscorer another

:14:42.:14:45.

record goalscorer for the most hated club in English football. And a

:14:46.:14:51.

record number of games and all of that. -- for the most celebrated

:14:52.:14:58.

club in English football. They probably say the same as us,

:14:59.:15:04.

actually. He has done quite well. "Quite Does quote well? Apparently

:15:05.:15:11.

he has 26 penalties and Bobby Charlton had nine although you say

:15:12.:15:14.

he played far fewer games that sort of even set out. The 249th goal, I

:15:15.:15:22.

think was not actually a key grey-haired or anything. It was...

:15:23.:15:28.

It was not the cleanest strike. It sort of floated off his shin, really

:15:29.:15:33.

as the ball came in. These need, I read. He guided towards the goal and

:15:34.:15:42.

he will take it. He's got fantastic goals as well. Some brilliant

:15:43.:15:48.

strikes and cabins. He scored 249 goals, 12 years. Longevity is

:15:49.:15:54.

impressive in itself. And he remains an iconic English football player.

:15:55.:15:58.

He may not be the player he was but here still something special. And

:15:59.:16:04.

very quickly. From the Sunday Telegraph, ABC breakfast time. My

:16:05.:16:11.

lovely colleague misidentified a couple of people he was about to

:16:12.:16:21.

interview. Explain to as what happened. He was supposed to be

:16:22.:16:25.

interviewing a former soldier who climb Mount Everest and in fact he

:16:26.:16:29.

got an academic who was considerably older and not quite as athletic.

:16:30.:16:36.

Unfortunately he did not realise that he had the wrong person in

:16:37.:16:40.

front of him until, well, he realise quickly, I think... It does show

:16:41.:16:49.

actually how fraught live television can be. It can be indeed, especially

:16:50.:16:55.

when you have two people called Markson. Thank you very much,

:16:56.:16:59.

gentlemen. Well done, John Kay handled well in the end.

:17:00.:17:03.

Don't forget all the front pages are online on the BBC News website

:17:04.:17:08.

where you can read a detailed review of the papers.

:17:09.:17:11.

It's all there for you - seven days a week at

:17:12.:17:13.

BBC.co.uk/papers and you can see us there too -

:17:14.:17:16.

with each night's edition of The Papers being posted

:17:17.:17:18.

on the page shortly after we've finished.

:17:19.:17:20.

Thank you, Martin Lipton and Martin Bentham.
