Hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be
With me are Tony Evans, sport columnist at The London
Evening Standard, and Anne Ashworth, assistant editor at the Times.
Theresa May. Talking about her upcoming meeting with Donald Trump.
The protesters make the front page of the Observer. Theresa May will
tell Donald Trump do not insult women. And a new deal on Nato. And
Downing Street covering up nuclear weapon mishap. Apparently one went
off course during a misfiring in Florida heading towards the United
States. That would test relations. The Telegraph. One of many papers
which are looking at the beginnings of the Donald Trump presidency and
what it might mean for us in particular. Donald Trump's new deal
for Britain. Getting down to business despite global protesting.
What might be in it for Britain? A new relationship under which Theresa
May becomes as Margaret Thatcher was to Ronald Reagan. A profound
transatlantic relationship. There will be a trade deal and an
agreement we will spend 2% of GDP on defence. And possibly something that
Theresa May could use as a very strong bargaining tool during the
Brexit negotiations. Security has cropped up in the run-up to this
week. Although if Britain was to leave the European Union, and we are
meant to be going, Theresa May has always said it was important for
security, along with Nato. Nato is crucial. Especially with the spectre
of Vladimir Putin and Russian Imperial ambitions in the east. The
problem is that Donald Trump has dismissed Nato on a number of
occasions. He believes America is under too much strain to provide
security for the world. Frankly, the way he is acting, he will not pay
it. What we have here is the special relationship. We always have special
relationships when it benefits Americans. It is only when it suits
America. Judging by what Donald Trump said yesterday in his
inaugural speech, this is rather hopeful that there is a new deal for
Britain. Because it is America first, and everyone else will come a
long way behind. According to the Sunday Telegraph, there will be a
state visit for Donald Trump in the summer. The Full Monty. All the pomp
and circumstance. Wouldn't you want to be a fly on the
wall when Prince Philip meets Donald Trump and Melania is probably
already planning the outfits. Another extraordinary thing in a
week that becomes more and more extraordinary. It will appeal to
Donald Trump's team. I can imagine a huge production. This is the sort of
thing he has dreamt about, being the central figure in this. What we have
to remember is something that Kissinger was writing about what he
expected Donald Trump to do. He said do not judge by what he said or did
on the campaign, it will be entirely different. He could bring a whole
new world order. We should expect surprises. Yeah, because he has got
Congress to deal with as well. The Mail on Sunday. Cut out your sexist
insults, Mr President. Theresa May will apparently tell him to not be
insulting to women. I wonder whether she will wear one of those pink hats
that we saw out in the demonstrations today. A specially
knitted one. Has been a call to arms for people to knit those pink "pussy
hats." So they were not made in China as I feared? It took me six
months to knit a dish cloth. Can you imagine Melania wearing one?
Margaret Thatcher would have given him a talking to. I do not believe
Theresa May would do that. Donald Trump apparently calls her "my
Maggie." A streetwalker in the Liverpool folksong. I would say
Theresa May would be able to take on Donald Trump, or The Donald,
whatever we want to call him, and tell him he cannot behave like this.
I feel he can do that. I do feel that will be remotely on the agenda
when he comes. We will be looking for America's scraps, if Brexit
happens, which I am sceptical about. What would you like? We will see.
Theresa May is not to be trifled with them is she? The Observer.
Hundreds of thousands of US women unite to defy trump. There they are
in those homeknit hats. Huge crowds, not just in America, but around the
world. It really started with women and minority rights. People are
meeting up for all sorts of reasons. People are collecting together who
just do not like Donald Trump and everything he stands for. It is men
and women. What will be most interesting is how the Donald Trump
administration decides to deal with this. Will they decide these are
merely affluent people who can afford to travel to Washington or
another capital and demonstrate and carry banners with sometimes quite
clever puns? Or will they think these are people they need to take
account of? I am sure the Donald Trump administration is saying how
true supporters could not afford to take a day off from a job if they
could afford one. The reality is this is important because people
voted for Donald Trump to legitimise this sexual predator. He downgrades
women. The worst thing about what Donald Trump said is that... He said
it was locker room talk. I have been around locker rooms from Sunday
league to the Super Bowl... That is not true, some groups of men get
together and it does get a bit ripe. That is different. He says when you
are a star you can do this. What it was was the bullying and predatory
instincts of someone rich and famous and fearless because of it. That is
what we have to confront. The most interesting thing is loads of women
voted for him knowing that. Finding that this tasteful but nonetheless
seen him as their saviour. They did because in America there is a
feeling of, a sort of, estrangement from the political process, that
means that people are willing to vote for almost anyone. What they
have done is they have this intellectual blankness that they can
put their own views on. He did really well among the evangelists.
This is the least religious man on the planet. He is a political
outsider. He is not a political outsider! He has no shame! He lives
in a gold room! He has not come up through the village. He is nothing
but a rich kid who inherited wealth and somehow appealed to people by
saying, look, I am an outsider. I tell you what, if he is an outsider,
I would like a look at his bank account. People want someone from
outside politics. Entered Jackson, a great populist, Donald Trump is in
that model. -- Andrew Jackson. The Sunday Times. Women diss The Donald.
We are puzzled by that. It is not a headline word. If protest of these
proportions is merely dissing, I am not sure. It is useful in a literal
sense. Shall we talk about something else for a minute? The Sunday Times
is also talking about the Number 10 missile fiasco. An extraordinary,
extraordinary story. Douzable thigh it, they tested out the missile
unarmed, and it veered off course towards America. -- To simplify it.
This was not mentioned when the Commons that to make its
extraordinary vote on the Trident programme. Whether it should be
renewed. Last summer, it was one of the first things Theresa May did in
office. I would think this is going to have a big fuss about it because
some MPs will say, hmm, I was unsure about Trident and an even more
unsure now. But let us emphasise it was unarmed. This HMS Vengeance, the
submarine, was returned to use after a four-year refit. When they did
this, obviously it did not work. It was the first time in 16 years it
fired a rocket. How are they meant to test them? You would expect more
than that. Will Trident work well? Is it an effective deterrent? It
looked at it isn't. Downing Street and the MOD have issued a statement.
The effectiveness of the trident missile is unquestionable. They said
it was a routine unarmed test launch from the HMS Vengeance to certify
the submarine and its crew. It was successfully tested. Decertification
went ahead. So the HMS Vengeance can return to service. They say they
have confidence in the nuclear deterrent. A couple of minutes left.
The Telegraph. I will do it. Don't fret. He is pleased. Were are we?
Paul Nuttall. Why UKIP could win over betrayed voters? This is Paul
Nuttall, the new leader of UKIP, who will sit in this by-election in
Stoke-on-Trent. A big by-election for Labour. Labour have conceded the
political ground to UKIP for years. They will not address the
fundamental problem in this country, racism and xenophobia. They do not
want to alienate their own voters by saying this is what you are voting
for. Now it is clear and upfront. If Stoke-on-Trent votes for Paul
Nuttall, they are voting for racism and xenophobia. That is very, very
simplistic and an offensive narrative. I do not think it is
simplistic or offensive, it is reality. Couldn't it be that people
want something different and somebody they have not seen before?
They are sick of the status quo and they want someone who will stand up
for their rights? This is part of the country devoted to leave the EU.
They may want somebody entirely different to a patrician. It would
be very, very embarrassing for Paul Nuttall if he does not win this seat
because he will immediately be seen as weak in his position. But we are
in... There is this massive mood that we want politicians who are not
politicians. We do not want a professional in the job. Well, do
you know what, this is where Labour have an opportunity, they are
talking about austerity. Why you are struggling is because of austerity.
The reason that foreigners is taking jobs is because the safeguards for
Labour have been destroyed over the years and we will fight back. Thank
you. You can go on line to see more. We repeat the actual review on
iPlayer if you want it. Lovely to see you both. I cannot think of
where I would rather spend my Saturday, can you? Coming up next,
it is the film review. Goodbye for now.
