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

:00:13.:00:16.

With me are Tony Evans, sport columnist at The London

:00:17.:00:20.

Evening Standard, and Anne Ashworth, assistant editor at the Times.

:00:21.:00:23.

Theresa May. Talking about her upcoming meeting with Donald Trump.

:00:24.:00:46.

The protesters make the front page of the Observer. Theresa May will

:00:47.:00:55.

tell Donald Trump do not insult women. And a new deal on Nato. And

:00:56.:01:01.

Downing Street covering up nuclear weapon mishap. Apparently one went

:01:02.:01:09.

off course during a misfiring in Florida heading towards the United

:01:10.:01:15.

States. That would test relations. The Telegraph. One of many papers

:01:16.:01:19.

which are looking at the beginnings of the Donald Trump presidency and

:01:20.:01:23.

what it might mean for us in particular. Donald Trump's new deal

:01:24.:01:28.

for Britain. Getting down to business despite global protesting.

:01:29.:01:37.

What might be in it for Britain? A new relationship under which Theresa

:01:38.:01:41.

May becomes as Margaret Thatcher was to Ronald Reagan. A profound

:01:42.:01:48.

transatlantic relationship. There will be a trade deal and an

:01:49.:01:56.

agreement we will spend 2% of GDP on defence. And possibly something that

:01:57.:02:04.

Theresa May could use as a very strong bargaining tool during the

:02:05.:02:08.

Brexit negotiations. Security has cropped up in the run-up to this

:02:09.:02:16.

week. Although if Britain was to leave the European Union, and we are

:02:17.:02:20.

meant to be going, Theresa May has always said it was important for

:02:21.:02:25.

security, along with Nato. Nato is crucial. Especially with the spectre

:02:26.:02:30.

of Vladimir Putin and Russian Imperial ambitions in the east. The

:02:31.:02:37.

problem is that Donald Trump has dismissed Nato on a number of

:02:38.:02:41.

occasions. He believes America is under too much strain to provide

:02:42.:02:47.

security for the world. Frankly, the way he is acting, he will not pay

:02:48.:02:51.

it. What we have here is the special relationship. We always have special

:02:52.:02:57.

relationships when it benefits Americans. It is only when it suits

:02:58.:03:02.

America. Judging by what Donald Trump said yesterday in his

:03:03.:03:07.

inaugural speech, this is rather hopeful that there is a new deal for

:03:08.:03:11.

Britain. Because it is America first, and everyone else will come a

:03:12.:03:16.

long way behind. According to the Sunday Telegraph, there will be a

:03:17.:03:21.

state visit for Donald Trump in the summer. The Full Monty. All the pomp

:03:22.:03:26.

and circumstance. Wouldn't you want to be a fly on the

:03:27.:03:39.

wall when Prince Philip meets Donald Trump and Melania is probably

:03:40.:03:45.

already planning the outfits. Another extraordinary thing in a

:03:46.:03:49.

week that becomes more and more extraordinary. It will appeal to

:03:50.:03:54.

Donald Trump's team. I can imagine a huge production. This is the sort of

:03:55.:03:59.

thing he has dreamt about, being the central figure in this. What we have

:04:00.:04:03.

to remember is something that Kissinger was writing about what he

:04:04.:04:10.

expected Donald Trump to do. He said do not judge by what he said or did

:04:11.:04:14.

on the campaign, it will be entirely different. He could bring a whole

:04:15.:04:18.

new world order. We should expect surprises. Yeah, because he has got

:04:19.:04:24.

Congress to deal with as well. The Mail on Sunday. Cut out your sexist

:04:25.:04:29.

insults, Mr President. Theresa May will apparently tell him to not be

:04:30.:04:33.

insulting to women. I wonder whether she will wear one of those pink hats

:04:34.:04:37.

that we saw out in the demonstrations today. A specially

:04:38.:04:46.

knitted one. Has been a call to arms for people to knit those pink "pussy

:04:47.:04:57.

hats." So they were not made in China as I feared? It took me six

:04:58.:05:06.

months to knit a dish cloth. Can you imagine Melania wearing one?

:05:07.:05:15.

Margaret Thatcher would have given him a talking to. I do not believe

:05:16.:05:20.

Theresa May would do that. Donald Trump apparently calls her "my

:05:21.:05:28.

Maggie." A streetwalker in the Liverpool folksong. I would say

:05:29.:05:33.

Theresa May would be able to take on Donald Trump, or The Donald,

:05:34.:05:41.

whatever we want to call him, and tell him he cannot behave like this.

:05:42.:05:46.

I feel he can do that. I do feel that will be remotely on the agenda

:05:47.:05:49.

when he comes. We will be looking for America's scraps, if Brexit

:05:50.:05:55.

happens, which I am sceptical about. What would you like? We will see.

:05:56.:06:01.

Theresa May is not to be trifled with them is she? The Observer.

:06:02.:06:05.

Hundreds of thousands of US women unite to defy trump. There they are

:06:06.:06:14.

in those homeknit hats. Huge crowds, not just in America, but around the

:06:15.:06:19.

world. It really started with women and minority rights. People are

:06:20.:06:26.

meeting up for all sorts of reasons. People are collecting together who

:06:27.:06:29.

just do not like Donald Trump and everything he stands for. It is men

:06:30.:06:36.

and women. What will be most interesting is how the Donald Trump

:06:37.:06:39.

administration decides to deal with this. Will they decide these are

:06:40.:06:43.

merely affluent people who can afford to travel to Washington or

:06:44.:06:46.

another capital and demonstrate and carry banners with sometimes quite

:06:47.:06:55.

clever puns? Or will they think these are people they need to take

:06:56.:06:59.

account of? I am sure the Donald Trump administration is saying how

:07:00.:07:04.

true supporters could not afford to take a day off from a job if they

:07:05.:07:08.

could afford one. The reality is this is important because people

:07:09.:07:14.

voted for Donald Trump to legitimise this sexual predator. He downgrades

:07:15.:07:21.

women. The worst thing about what Donald Trump said is that... He said

:07:22.:07:27.

it was locker room talk. I have been around locker rooms from Sunday

:07:28.:07:33.

league to the Super Bowl... That is not true, some groups of men get

:07:34.:07:38.

together and it does get a bit ripe. That is different. He says when you

:07:39.:07:45.

are a star you can do this. What it was was the bullying and predatory

:07:46.:07:48.

instincts of someone rich and famous and fearless because of it. That is

:07:49.:07:53.

what we have to confront. The most interesting thing is loads of women

:07:54.:07:58.

voted for him knowing that. Finding that this tasteful but nonetheless

:07:59.:08:03.

seen him as their saviour. They did because in America there is a

:08:04.:08:09.

feeling of, a sort of, estrangement from the political process, that

:08:10.:08:14.

means that people are willing to vote for almost anyone. What they

:08:15.:08:19.

have done is they have this intellectual blankness that they can

:08:20.:08:23.

put their own views on. He did really well among the evangelists.

:08:24.:08:31.

This is the least religious man on the planet. He is a political

:08:32.:08:35.

outsider. He is not a political outsider! He has no shame! He lives

:08:36.:08:43.

in a gold room! He has not come up through the village. He is nothing

:08:44.:08:47.

but a rich kid who inherited wealth and somehow appealed to people by

:08:48.:08:53.

saying, look, I am an outsider. I tell you what, if he is an outsider,

:08:54.:09:00.

I would like a look at his bank account. People want someone from

:09:01.:09:07.

outside politics. Entered Jackson, a great populist, Donald Trump is in

:09:08.:09:11.

that model. -- Andrew Jackson. The Sunday Times. Women diss The Donald.

:09:12.:09:23.

We are puzzled by that. It is not a headline word. If protest of these

:09:24.:09:30.

proportions is merely dissing, I am not sure. It is useful in a literal

:09:31.:09:40.

sense. Shall we talk about something else for a minute? The Sunday Times

:09:41.:09:44.

is also talking about the Number 10 missile fiasco. An extraordinary,

:09:45.:09:48.

extraordinary story. Douzable thigh it, they tested out the missile

:09:49.:09:57.

unarmed, and it veered off course towards America. -- To simplify it.

:09:58.:10:06.

This was not mentioned when the Commons that to make its

:10:07.:10:13.

extraordinary vote on the Trident programme. Whether it should be

:10:14.:10:17.

renewed. Last summer, it was one of the first things Theresa May did in

:10:18.:10:21.

office. I would think this is going to have a big fuss about it because

:10:22.:10:27.

some MPs will say, hmm, I was unsure about Trident and an even more

:10:28.:10:33.

unsure now. But let us emphasise it was unarmed. This HMS Vengeance, the

:10:34.:10:43.

submarine, was returned to use after a four-year refit. When they did

:10:44.:10:51.

this, obviously it did not work. It was the first time in 16 years it

:10:52.:11:02.

fired a rocket. How are they meant to test them? You would expect more

:11:03.:11:08.

than that. Will Trident work well? Is it an effective deterrent? It

:11:09.:11:14.

looked at it isn't. Downing Street and the MOD have issued a statement.

:11:15.:11:22.

The effectiveness of the trident missile is unquestionable. They said

:11:23.:11:28.

it was a routine unarmed test launch from the HMS Vengeance to certify

:11:29.:11:32.

the submarine and its crew. It was successfully tested. Decertification

:11:33.:11:36.

went ahead. So the HMS Vengeance can return to service. They say they

:11:37.:11:43.

have confidence in the nuclear deterrent. A couple of minutes left.

:11:44.:11:48.

The Telegraph. I will do it. Don't fret. He is pleased. Were are we?

:11:49.:11:58.

Paul Nuttall. Why UKIP could win over betrayed voters? This is Paul

:11:59.:12:04.

Nuttall, the new leader of UKIP, who will sit in this by-election in

:12:05.:12:11.

Stoke-on-Trent. A big by-election for Labour. Labour have conceded the

:12:12.:12:17.

political ground to UKIP for years. They will not address the

:12:18.:12:20.

fundamental problem in this country, racism and xenophobia. They do not

:12:21.:12:26.

want to alienate their own voters by saying this is what you are voting

:12:27.:12:31.

for. Now it is clear and upfront. If Stoke-on-Trent votes for Paul

:12:32.:12:36.

Nuttall, they are voting for racism and xenophobia. That is very, very

:12:37.:12:40.

simplistic and an offensive narrative. I do not think it is

:12:41.:12:45.

simplistic or offensive, it is reality. Couldn't it be that people

:12:46.:12:48.

want something different and somebody they have not seen before?

:12:49.:12:53.

They are sick of the status quo and they want someone who will stand up

:12:54.:12:56.

for their rights? This is part of the country devoted to leave the EU.

:12:57.:13:07.

They may want somebody entirely different to a patrician. It would

:13:08.:13:14.

be very, very embarrassing for Paul Nuttall if he does not win this seat

:13:15.:13:19.

because he will immediately be seen as weak in his position. But we are

:13:20.:13:23.

in... There is this massive mood that we want politicians who are not

:13:24.:13:28.

politicians. We do not want a professional in the job. Well, do

:13:29.:13:33.

you know what, this is where Labour have an opportunity, they are

:13:34.:13:37.

talking about austerity. Why you are struggling is because of austerity.

:13:38.:13:41.

The reason that foreigners is taking jobs is because the safeguards for

:13:42.:13:49.

Labour have been destroyed over the years and we will fight back. Thank

:13:50.:13:57.

you. You can go on line to see more. We repeat the actual review on

:13:58.:14:05.

iPlayer if you want it. Lovely to see you both. I cannot think of

:14:06.:14:10.

where I would rather spend my Saturday, can you? Coming up next,

:14:11.:14:15.

it is the film review. Goodbye for now.

:14:16.:14:21.
