Hello and good evening. Welcome to look ahead to what the papers will

:00:17.:00:25.

be bringing us tomorrow. Hello to you both. Before we talk to them we

:00:26.:00:31.

should look at the front pages, starting with The Daily Mail says

:00:32.:00:35.

the Prime Minister has threatened to cap funding to GPs if they do not

:00:36.:00:39.

offer appointments 12 hours a day, seven hours

:00:40.:00:40.

days a week. It is all part of an attempt to cut keys and hospitals.

:00:41.:00:50.

The Times is carrying the same story and that is also believed in The

:00:51.:00:54.

Daily Telegraph, which reports comments from the outgoing US

:00:55.:00:59.

ambassador to the European Union, who suggest that President Trump

:01:00.:01:03.

wants to bring down the years. The Mirror carries the news of the baby

:01:04.:01:09.

that was kidnapped two decades ago in the United States, now found and

:01:10.:01:14.

returned to the mother. The Guardian is claiming an exclusive after

:01:15.:01:19.

talking to the EU chief Brexit negotiator about future relations

:01:20.:01:24.

with the City of London and the financial structures suggesting that

:01:25.:01:29.

the EU is blink first. The Daily Express is looking at the life and

:01:30.:01:33.

times of Lord Snowdon, the former husband of Princess Margaret who has

:01:34.:01:38.

died aged 86 and some great to grass in the papers today off-load

:01:39.:01:45.

Sludden. -- of Lord Snowdon. Theresa May has a problem with the long

:01:46.:01:54.

waiting times at any and one of her solutions is to get doctors

:01:55.:02:00.

surgeries to open longer hours. Problem is putting it mildly. It is

:02:01.:02:08.

a sticking plaster on a gaping wound, to use a medical analogy. She

:02:09.:02:14.

was saying she will with draw funding from GP's surgeries. She's

:02:15.:02:19.

going to withdraw money if they cannot prove they can open and

:02:20.:02:24.

delivering longer hours. Is this going to solve the problem in

:02:25.:02:32.

hospitals? The first week of January, 95% of bets were full and

:02:33.:02:40.

this week we heard that 40% of hospitals had issued alerts. -- 95%

:02:41.:02:47.

of beds. This is not because people cannot get to their GP after 5pm. To

:02:48.:02:54.

May has to be seen to do something. She is very weak on the NHS. Simon

:02:55.:03:01.

Stephens, the head of the NHS in England, has had a pop at her. She

:03:02.:03:05.

needs to be seen to be doing something. But she is putting the

:03:06.:03:11.

money in the wrong place. It is shifting the blame onto the

:03:12.:03:17.

patients. Jeremy Hunt blames people going to a need for broken

:03:18.:03:26.

fingernails for the whole crisis. In defence of the GPs who work every

:03:27.:03:32.

hour, what might be the reasons for a GP surgery shutting at TPM? Lots

:03:33.:03:44.

of reasons. My GP is the only GP in the practice, so he cannot be

:03:45.:03:49.

expected to work from ATM to 8pm, although it would be great that

:03:50.:03:55.

evening appointments. In rural areas doctors may have to go from one

:03:56.:04:02.

village to another. They also have other responsibilities, such as

:04:03.:04:06.

admin. I was looking at the national audit report and its 92% of those

:04:07.:04:11.

with that in two kilometre is a GP's surgery, which I thought was all

:04:12.:04:15.

well and good, I live within two kilometre is but I cannot get an

:04:16.:04:25.

appointment for two weeks. It is also axis. It will do not work near

:04:26.:04:32.

to their GP, so for most people going to be GP means taking a day

:04:33.:04:40.

off work. Another option would be to let people register at other GPs.

:04:41.:04:51.

Some people have GPs at their work which means people can pop out. Is

:04:52.:04:58.

said they are trying to shift the blame onto the public, but don't we

:04:59.:05:02.

have a responsibility to try and take the pressure of accident and

:05:03.:05:09.

emergency? That is not the problem of why the beds are full. NHS

:05:10.:05:15.

hospitals are bursting point because of bad locking. There are lots of

:05:16.:05:18.

patience and you cannot be dismissed. Theresa May needs to

:05:19.:05:29.

address those issues as well. We are an ageing population and the bulk of

:05:30.:05:38.

those slots are taken by older people who for argument's said they

:05:39.:05:41.

may be alone, they may not have anyone to talk to as younger people

:05:42.:05:47.

would. It is quite understandable, but society is changing quite

:05:48.:05:52.

significantly, both for GPs and AMP surgeries. At a slight is not just

:05:53.:05:57.

about hospitals and GPs, it is also about term care and older people

:05:58.:06:03.

having good social care and someone coming in to see them. They might be

:06:04.:06:08.

less likely to take a GP appointment. This is a solution that

:06:09.:06:14.

doesn't involve spending money... There giving them extra money, 500

:06:15.:06:24.

million. 500 million in funding. The order get the funding that she is

:06:25.:06:28.

good with joy is GPs do not offer the hours. They are getting extra

:06:29.:06:33.

money to operate a seven-day service. That will be hanging over

:06:34.:06:41.

the heads of the GPs. Lots of people have got on that. Another story from

:06:42.:06:49.

The Times. It is the resignation of Tristram Hunt. Smart guy? Young guy?

:06:50.:06:55.

Surely they can gather labour should be hanging onto. Jeremy Corbyn has

:06:56.:07:03.

been very calm in his reaction, but I think it is a headache for him. He

:07:04.:07:08.

has been critical of Jeremy Corbyn and he refused to serve in his

:07:09.:07:17.

Shadow Cabinet will. I don't think any Labour MP can resign at the

:07:18.:07:21.

moment but they're rocking the boat. He probably thinks that labour is

:07:22.:07:29.

going nowhere and he is so young. He just said in his resignation was

:07:30.:07:33.

nothing to do with Jeremy Corbyn. Jamie Reid is going to work in the

:07:34.:07:40.

nuclear industry and Justin Hunt is going to work and art. He was on the

:07:41.:07:46.

list of the selection targets when the boundary changes coming.

:07:47.:07:53.

Stoke-on-Trent Central, his seat, is under threat. He's probably thinking

:07:54.:08:00.

he should jump before he has to. They only had a majority of 5000. He

:08:01.:08:05.

was opposed to many of his constituents because he bolted to

:08:06.:08:12.

remain. This by-election will be very indicative of the voting post

:08:13.:08:19.

Brexit. It could be Richmond in reverse. In 2015 Ukip were second in

:08:20.:08:28.

the constituency and there is speculation that poll not will stand

:08:29.:08:31.

in the seat. I think it was one the highest Brexit boats in the

:08:32.:08:40.

referendum. This is Ukip Central. It is northern and Brexit. It is

:08:41.:08:46.

working class. I'm from there, actually. It is where they had been

:08:47.:08:50.

taking boats of labours of them I think they have a good chance there,

:08:51.:08:56.

but this would people tonight... It has been a labour seat since it has

:08:57.:09:04.

been created, since the 1950s. By thin Jeremy Corbyn does face a

:09:05.:09:08.

challenge from Ukip, particularly up a little stands. If that happens it

:09:09.:09:16.

will be indicative of Ukip putting everything into it. One problem for

:09:17.:09:19.

Ukip is that Nigel Farage is still there. He was one of the first to

:09:20.:09:24.

comment today and he is the quotes that the media carry. You do not see

:09:25.:09:29.

Paul Nuttall is often, although he has a big figure. This would be a

:09:30.:09:38.

good platform for him. Just a word on Justin Hunt, turning to the arts

:09:39.:09:47.

for a second, he did a good thing on the English Civil War for the BBC.

:09:48.:09:52.

He is well-educated. If you do write peck for the Albert and Victoria? He

:09:53.:10:02.

did oppose free entry and said that these should be reinstated, but the

:10:03.:10:06.

Victoria and Albert has said today that night he agrees with free entry

:10:07.:10:14.

and he seems to change disease. He was a historian and he is an

:10:15.:10:19.

intelligent guy. He is well-known for his energy but I'm sure there

:10:20.:10:23.

are a lot of people in the art world to be eyeing up that role he might

:10:24.:10:33.

be missed. -- might be annoyed. To The Guardian now. This is an

:10:34.:10:38.

interesting story. We have the chief negotiator for the EU who has been

:10:39.:10:44.

toying with but as politicians and saying there is only hard Brexit,

:10:45.:10:50.

but according to this article he has blinked and said that perhaps we

:10:51.:10:53.

need a better relationship with the City of London. This is one of the

:10:54.:10:59.

few good Brexit new stories we have had for a while. Essentially what

:11:00.:11:07.

this is saying is that Europe needs our city more than our city needs

:11:08.:11:18.

Europe. They are saying that the UK city, our banking industry, is like

:11:19.:11:24.

an investment bank of Europe. We are too big to fail. So they get all the

:11:25.:11:34.

money for the projects? Some people are saying that the minutes have

:11:35.:11:41.

been exaggerated, but if true it could be that we have our cake and

:11:42.:11:46.

eat it. The timing is very significant because Theresa May is

:11:47.:11:51.

giving a speech on Tuesday outlining the nuts and bolts of Brexit and she

:11:52.:11:57.

has been talking and hinting that we will go for hard Brexit, that we

:11:58.:12:03.

could leave the single market to have more control over immigration.

:12:04.:12:07.

I think the timing of this is significant because if we are moving

:12:08.:12:14.

towards a hired Scott back hard Brexit, and they are saying we can

:12:15.:12:19.

do a special deal... This is great for me because she has been

:12:20.:12:24.

criticised Bailey for not giving up the on Brexit and she has held firm

:12:25.:12:28.

and said that she will not give away our negotiating stance. He has

:12:29.:12:36.

blinked first. The fear is that EU members and companies would find it

:12:37.:12:39.

harder and more costly to raise capital that they were denied access

:12:40.:12:45.

to the city. Which is what the Eurosceptics have been saying all

:12:46.:12:50.

along. The question is whether there will be any you to fight over

:12:51.:12:53.

because according to The Daily Telegraph, the outgoing US

:12:54.:13:01.

ambassador saying that Donald Trump wants to prove the EU down from

:13:02.:13:07.

within. It is no surprise to hear that. Here's not keen on the EU. The

:13:08.:13:13.

first politician that he met after being elected was Nigel Farage.

:13:14.:13:17.

During the American election campaign he said that they were

:13:18.:13:22.

going to call for Brexit plus, plus, plus. Marie Le Pen with the Trump

:13:23.:13:28.

Tower yesterday. He has been comparing his movement to Brexit for

:13:29.:13:31.

a long time and he sees itself as part of the antiestablishment. It is

:13:32.:13:39.

the same as considering any big conglomerate a threat to him. The

:13:40.:13:45.

problem with the Americans is that if you want to speak to Europe who

:13:46.:13:52.

do you call? But the ambassador for the US makes the point that can be

:13:53.:13:55.

in the interests of America to fracture and split Europe, so you

:13:56.:14:02.

have to speak to everyone of them. Definitely not that it may be in the

:14:03.:14:07.

interests of Donald Trump. I don't imagine he knows a lot about it.

:14:08.:14:13.

That would be my guess. He likes to make sweeping comments. That is not

:14:14.:14:21.

his priority just now. We have been talking about old people in one of

:14:22.:14:25.

the stories in The Daily Telegraph is that the government is looking at

:14:26.:14:30.

ways of shifting people out of larger houses. The kids of left and

:14:31.:14:39.

they have big houses, how do we get them to downsize. The idea of one of

:14:40.:14:47.

two people in a huge house, which is a problem with younger families need

:14:48.:14:52.

bigger houses and they do not have access, and... What does that have

:14:53.:14:58.

to do with the government? It is quite nanny state. They are trying

:14:59.:15:04.

to coax people into it and add them to behave in a certain way but you

:15:05.:15:08.

cannot tell people to do that. People may have lived in their

:15:09.:15:12.

houses for decades. They will have a lot of family memories and may not

:15:13.:15:16.

want to move. Especially if someone has lost a partner. If you get the

:15:17.:15:22.

top of the housing market moving, will the rest of the move? If the

:15:23.:15:29.

government want to get single people out of big houses to free the way

:15:30.:15:33.

for younger people... The younger people can't afford them anyway.

:15:34.:15:38.

Real estate has gone through the roof and it is the older generation

:15:39.:15:45.

that have benefited from this. I wonder how many older people are in

:15:46.:15:50.

the big house was living with the grown-up children. The Scottish

:15:51.:16:02.

Daily Mail says there is a march of workers aged 80. We are trying to

:16:03.:16:10.

control the old people, but they are all working apparently. 1.4% of

:16:11.:16:21.

people aged over 80, which is a big increase from five years ago, they

:16:22.:16:27.

are still in work. The tone of the story is disapproving. There is the

:16:28.:16:38.

suggestion this should give way to younger people. Young men are

:16:39.:16:43.

finding it difficult to find full-time work and many of them are

:16:44.:16:48.

resorting to part-time roles. Should they be given way to younger people.

:16:49.:16:57.

If people are capable of working the should be allowed to continue. A man

:16:58.:17:03.

in his 80s put an advert in a local paper because it was widowed and was

:17:04.:17:07.

bored at home sweep put an ad in a local paper and got her job in a

:17:08.:17:10.

local paper and got her job at a local cafe. I remember that. There

:17:11.:17:15.

is an argument that if they do not need the money then they should not

:17:16.:17:23.

be working, can they not do charity work? If it is just for

:17:24.:17:30.

entertainment. A final 1-2 finish, but a great story. This little girl

:17:31.:17:36.

was snatched from a hospital 18 years ago, there is a picture of her

:17:37.:17:40.

on the front page, she has turned up. Imagine finding out 80 years

:17:41.:17:44.

after you were born but actually your whole life has not been the

:17:45.:17:50.

life you were supposed to have and you have a different biological

:17:51.:17:57.

family, albeit the family that raised you would be those that you

:17:58.:18:03.

thought of this family. The biological family described being

:18:04.:18:06.

elected, but I'm not sure she will be elated. To realise you have led

:18:07.:18:20.

your whole life alive. She was eight hours old. Someone will have reared

:18:21.:18:37.

this little girl she will think of those people as her parents that

:18:38.:18:42.

they are the criminals. We do not know much about how she was found or

:18:43.:18:47.

treated, we don't know. Who knows what was going on and we do not know

:18:48.:18:57.

the circumstances. There must've been a tip-off her be found. There

:18:58.:19:05.

was also a lot of the any testing. They tried to cross matched the DNA

:19:06.:19:09.

and then something like this might turn up. She has found out she has a

:19:10.:19:21.

hall other family, but it means the people who are effectively

:19:22.:19:27.

criminals. They are out of time. That is all from the papers. You can

:19:28.:19:32.

see the front pages from the papers on the BBC website. If you miss the

:19:33.:19:38.

programme this evening you can watch it again on the iPlayer. Thank you

:19:39.:19:46.

for your company this evening and that is us.

:19:47.:20:02.

The cold weather continues into the weekend but some of us have other

:20:03.:20:10.

concerns, like scenes like this in eastern England. We
