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

:00:14.:00:17.

With me are Political Editor of the Sunday Mirror

:00:18.:00:26.

and political commentator Jo Phillips.

:00:27.:00:33.

we will be going through the newspapers in a moment, but first,

:00:34.:00:36.

the front pages: the Observer says cancer patients

:00:37.:00:40.

are feeling the brunt of the NHS crisis with operations

:00:41.:00:43.

being cancelled on a regular basis. The Mail on Sunday suggests cutting

:00:44.:00:45.

the foreign aid budget to fund It claims more than three quarters

:00:46.:00:48.

of voters support the idea. Theresa May's Brexit strategy

:00:49.:00:52.

is the Sunday Telegraph's focus. It says the PM is prepared to lead

:00:53.:00:54.

Britain out of the single market. The "Brexit Battle Plan" is how

:00:55.:01:00.

the Sunday Express put it, saying May is going to get

:01:01.:01:03.

tough with Brussels. And the Sunday Times carries

:01:04.:01:07.

an image of Prince William, who it says will be

:01:08.:01:10.

leaving his position as an air-ambulance

:01:11.:01:12.

helicopter pilot very good evening to the both of

:01:13.:01:30.

you, let us begin, starting with the Telegraph. "Brexit". All the way. We

:01:31.:01:36.

seem to have new "Brexit", we have had soft and hard but now the

:01:37.:01:40.

Telegraph is talking about a clean "Brexit". What is the difference?

:01:41.:01:49.

Good question, it looks very hard to me, according to the Telegraph, but

:01:50.:01:53.

when Theresa May makes her big speech on Tuesday where she is meant

:01:54.:01:58.

to outline her position at last, what she will say is that we cannot

:01:59.:02:02.

stay in the single market necessarily, that we will not stay

:02:03.:02:05.

in the customs union, which means the free movement of goods, the

:02:06.:02:10.

reason being, that would interfere with our chances of doing trade

:02:11.:02:15.

deals elsewhere in the world. Obviously single market is a problem

:02:16.:02:21.

because she has a firm line on immigration, freedom of movement is,

:02:22.:02:25.

she cannot compromise on that. Seems to access that those two things,

:02:26.:02:30.

that side of the trade deal will be done. In a sense, you feel she was

:02:31.:02:36.

always going to get here because when you think about it, she did not

:02:37.:02:40.

have much to negotiate with. This idea of keeping her negotiating hand

:02:41.:02:46.

quiet, did not make sense. The paper describes it as going for the full

:02:47.:02:52.

works. It is going to be some reassurance to the hardliners, and

:02:53.:02:58.

in fact a lot of this material has come from an article written by

:02:59.:03:03.

David Davis, Secretary of State for "Brexit", and so it is probably an

:03:04.:03:07.

indication that he and his colleague Liam Fox are weaned the debate, and

:03:08.:03:12.

I think the growing... She has been there six months, what is going to

:03:13.:03:18.

happen, it is hitting home, that she will come out with something. What

:03:19.:03:22.

will happen to the economy on Tuesday when she makes this... This

:03:23.:03:26.

is the briefing from Downing Street, and as we say, an article by David

:03:27.:03:31.

Davis, but the reality, when she delivers, as Nigel and I both know,

:03:32.:03:35.

you can be given a draft of a speech and it is different when it is

:03:36.:03:39.

delivered. What will it do to the economy and what did it mean for the

:03:40.:03:43.

people who are not so keen, who want for us to still be part of the

:03:44.:03:47.

single market, because this is... There is no other way to say it,

:03:48.:03:53.

this is hard. Delivering on what she promised the people. That is how the

:03:54.:03:57.

newspapers are saying it, that is how they voted, she is going to try.

:03:58.:04:04.

People worried about single market and Customs union, when they voted

:04:05.:04:07.

for "Brexit" they expected a hard Brexit. Turning to the Observer, we

:04:08.:04:13.

have two stories, but we start with, well we are carrying on with

:04:14.:04:17.

"Brexit" but there is a poll on the Conservatives "Brexit" steel, voters

:04:18.:04:21.

backing the Tories to deliver the best "Brexit" by 3-1. 3/1 against

:04:22.:04:30.

Labour, things are not that impressive, 30% of people said they

:04:31.:04:33.

most trusted the Conservatives to deliver a successful Brexit compared

:04:34.:04:40.

with just 13% for Labour. I'm surprised it is not higher about the

:04:41.:04:43.

fact that they thought the Tories would do a better job because all

:04:44.:04:47.

the polls, no matter what you ask them, if you ask them who is more

:04:48.:04:51.

competent, Theresa May always comes out top. Jeremy Corbyn is not doing

:04:52.:04:59.

well in polls, anyway. With all the confusion we have seen from the

:05:00.:05:02.

Labour Party, we can understand why they would not really want him

:05:03.:05:07.

handling the negotiations. There was a poll earlier, this was a comrade

:05:08.:05:12.

's poll, which also picked out that people trusted the Conservatives to

:05:13.:05:19.

handle the NHS. Over Jeremy Corbyn and labour. -- ComRes poll. Jeremy

:05:20.:05:28.

Corbyn is the architects of his own confusion, comes out with something

:05:29.:05:33.

in the morning, changes it by lunchtime, by tea-time, it has gone

:05:34.:05:37.

around the houses. This is a man, we don't even know what he stands for,

:05:38.:05:40.

we do not know what the policies are, we are in very difficult times,

:05:41.:05:46.

domestic, at home, with the health service, and on the foreign state.

:05:47.:05:50.

It is not surprisingly the Conservatives are doing well. Very

:05:51.:05:55.

quickly, the health service, this is the lead story all day... And it is

:05:56.:06:01.

yet another story about the emotional side of this, health

:06:02.:06:10.

service in crisis, cancer Ops cancelled, what we do not have is

:06:11.:06:14.

any detail about the number of operations being cancelled all the

:06:15.:06:18.

reason why stop the inference is that it is because of a shortage of

:06:19.:06:23.

beds. Very emotive, Cancer. The whole health service is emotive,

:06:24.:06:28.

that is part of the problem, as we have seen in the spat between the

:06:29.:06:30.

government and the GPs, what somebody needs to do is take a hard

:06:31.:06:36.

cold look at it and do some number crunching and go to an Accident and

:06:37.:06:40.

Emergency and go around and find out why are you here, did you come

:06:41.:06:45.

because you could not get a GP 's appointment, did you come here

:06:46.:06:48.

because you are not registered, did you know you could go to the

:06:49.:06:52.

pharmacist? Did you come here because you think even though there

:06:53.:06:55.

is nothing that can be done for the cold, you think that you will jump

:06:56.:06:59.

the queue? Until you get that sort of information, you cannot target

:07:00.:07:04.

the messages to say to those people, stay away, AMD is not the place to

:07:05.:07:09.

be. Very basic questionnaire, is it being carried out? -- A This is a

:07:10.:07:28.

very Daily Mail front page. Any thing to have a go at foreign aid,

:07:29.:07:33.

they have asked a question, would you prefer your 13 billion crowns

:07:34.:07:36.

which goes abroad to stay at home and find the NHS and surprise

:07:37.:07:40.

surprise, when you ask a question like that, eight out of ten voters

:07:41.:07:43.

say, that is what they would like to happen. Is part of the Daily Mail

:07:44.:07:51.

agenda that they had been running a campaign against overseas aid, I

:07:52.:07:59.

think it is a bit sad, it may well be that we need to make sure that

:08:00.:08:02.

foreign aid is going to the right places but the idea that we take it

:08:03.:08:06.

away from foreign aid and stick it into the health service is not

:08:07.:08:09.

tenable. The health service needs more money, bigger budget, you might

:08:10.:08:14.

decide you want to drop any play submarine to do that. There is a

:08:15.:08:18.

host of ways to do that. Moving on, very quickly, to the Sunday Times,

:08:19.:08:23.

because we need to cover Mr trump... January 20... He would like a

:08:24.:08:32.

summit... Similar to Reagan. Same place, Reykjavik, in Iceland, the...

:08:33.:08:38.

His aides, nears diplomats and his team are planning to have this to

:08:39.:08:43.

repeat what Ronald Reagan did with Mikhail Goebel chuff, 40 years ago,

:08:44.:08:50.

and have a meeting with blood and feuding, outside, America and

:08:51.:08:57.

Russia. -- Mikhail Gorbachev. It is a thawing of the relationship, but

:08:58.:09:01.

there are concerns among diplomats that it would further isolate

:09:02.:09:06.

Britain if America gets closer to Russia, and America is seen to

:09:07.:09:11.

basically sanction what blood amid Putin has done in the Ukraine and

:09:12.:09:16.

the Crimea. What do you think are the benefits of being a friend of

:09:17.:09:21.

Vladimir Putin? -- sanction what Vladimir Putin has done in the

:09:22.:09:28.

Ukraine. LAUGHTER We do not phone each other that

:09:29.:09:33.

often(!) the idea of Trump getting along with Vladimir Putin cannot be

:09:34.:09:36.

a bad thing, it depends what he gives away, Vladimir Putin is very

:09:37.:09:42.

shrewd, as we can see, it is quite clear that if Trump goes to a summit

:09:43.:09:46.

and is hoping for a nuclear deal, a wonderful nuclear deal, there has

:09:47.:09:53.

got to be won over Ukraine, Syria... It is what Vladimir Putin once at

:09:54.:09:56.

the end of it all which is the tricky bit. Is he likely to stick to

:09:57.:10:03.

it, like Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin is someone that you cannot

:10:04.:10:09.

second guess. He has played a blinder recently. Quite clear, what

:10:10.:10:16.

Donald Trump has said about Nato would be very convenient for

:10:17.:10:20.

Vladimir Putin. Vladimir Putin is probably smarter strategically than

:10:21.:10:23.

Donald Trump. And probably has more to gain because what he really wants

:10:24.:10:27.

is US sanctions to be lifted, that was the whole thing with the dossier

:10:28.:10:30.

and everything that has been going on... He has been around playing

:10:31.:10:35.

politics longer than Donald Trump as, we will see what happens. Will

:10:36.:10:40.

stick with the Sunday Times, and Prince William. Handing in his

:10:41.:10:47.

notice. He is going to stop being a helicopter pilot, he will become a

:10:48.:10:53.

full-time royal. What does that include? Who knows, we will have to

:10:54.:10:58.

look in... The court circular! LAUGHTER

:10:59.:11:04.

Shaking people's hands, and awful lot of that. He has come under

:11:05.:11:07.

criticism recently over last couple of years for not really pulling his

:11:08.:11:11.

weight. The Queen is 90, still working hard, she has been laid low

:11:12.:11:17.

with a cold like so many people over the Christmas period. Princess and

:11:18.:11:23.

is in her 60s, William's father is in his 60s. It is about the Royals,

:11:24.:11:28.

the younger royals, taking it on, he will be king one day. It is king

:11:29.:11:34.

training. His brother is already out of the Army, full-time royal as

:11:35.:11:38.

well. Moved to London, take on the job. You have to feel for the young

:11:39.:11:43.

royals, they have tried military life, Harry was devastated when he

:11:44.:11:47.

had to come out. But they cannot have it all. Nigel, Jo, thank you

:11:48.:11:59.

very much. You will be back again. We will be back very soon! That is

:12:00.:12:04.

it for the newspapers for the moment, join us at 11:30pm. Coming

:12:05.:12:08.

up next, Reporters.
