Hello and welcome to our to what The Papers will be bringing us tomorrow.


With me and the London Evening Standard's Political Correspondent


and Nigel Lanson -- Nelson, Political Editor at the Sunday


people. Let's look at the front pages. It is all about Brexit. Metro


has more on the Supreme Court ruling in article 50. They 50. They see a


bill could come before MPs as early as Thursday. The Daily Express


claimed any plans to prevent Brexit from happening will be thwarted by


new legislation at Westminster. The Telegraph says Jeremy Corbyn and


Nicola Sturgeon are planning to undermine the Prime Minister's plan


for a clean Brexit, but it is not just the opposition parties that


could be a thorn in her side. The Times says Tory rebels demanding a


full debate over the departure from the EU. The Guardian says MPs want


more of a plan that more of a say in plans to leave the single market. An


investigation into drivers using mobile phones behind the wheel in


the daily Mirror. It is a hoary old phrase, but what a great way to


start. Theresa May she lost the battle, but she the war. The Metro,


how many times will we say that. This is the story about the Supreme


Court decision, the Brexit bill will have to go before MPs and the


response from the government that it will happen as fast as possible. The


Metro is one of the few papers that covers the story in a straightaway.


They tell us what happened, but where's the other papers concentrate


more on what happens next and the ensuing battles and rebellions


within her own party, and within the opposition parties as well. The


Metro plays it straight. Number ten will be relieved in two areas. One


is the devolved governments, especially Scotland, didn't get the


right to have a say on Brexit. Secondly, the court didn't


explicitly state what happens next. That would be left up to the


government. It wasn't all bad news. We knew this would be the result,


didn't we? From the High Court, it was highly unlikely it wouldn't go


this way. The whole point about the devolved government is not being


able to influence all this, we probably knew that was going to


happen as well. It is a bit of a win- win for Theresa May. She didn't


want to have the vote in the first bus. She would have liked none of


the court cases to have happened and carried on doing it on the royal


prerogative and not been involved. What she has two now get three is


that it is not nearly as straightforward as the Metro likes


to present the story. There will be an awful lot now going on. The


problem they have got is that article 50 may or may not be


reversible. We don't know. After all, Brexit means Brexit, so does


that actually matter? It matters to MPs, because what it will mean is


they have got one important for where they can influence events. The


moment we trigger Brexit, then we are moving out of the EU, there is


no going back. When you think about it, all the other votes that come


up, not really of any importance whatsoever. They get a final vote on


whether to accept the deal that will either be hard Brexit or hard as


nails Brexit, it will be up them. The little devils are in the


details. Judges make history in Brexit blow to ministers. This is


their take on it, because now, MPs, including some conservatives, could


decide that we don't want to leave the customs union, we should be in


the single market. We have agreed to split up with Europe but the divorce


details have yet to be fleshed out. What the Times was in on is the


Conservative MPs causing trouble for the Prime Minister as we go forward.


During the debate in the Commons today, David Davis, there were seven


Conservative MPs who suggested they had concerns about the single market


aspect of Brexit in particular. They called for there to be a white


paper. The government would have a set out a paper with more detail as


to the way forward before MPs had a vote. This has been something that


number ten said would not happen, but David Davis today has been


distinctly cool about. There is some suggestion that they could be


holding that back in reserve if they need to appease their own


backbenchers and the opposition parties who want a White Paper. They


wanted to help smooth the passage of the article 50 foot. Give me a


couple of potential amendments. The other amendment will be from Labour


and that would be the negotiating position, which will be to keep


Britain in the single market. Theresa May has said no way. I think


quite rightly so. If she does that, there is no way of not accepting


free movement, therefore the key point of immigration which a lot of


people were voting for Brexit on those out the window. She makes the


point it is more or less staying in the EU and UN if we stay in the


single market. Within come to the next bit, the customs union. Surely


a matter of the movement of goods. Maybe there is a deal there. I would


have thought not. Again you have the rules, you have the common tariff


for outside goods. You also have the situation where we cannot do trade


deals elsewhere and by Friday they should be a nice one with Donald


Trump, Bob. To the Daily Telegraph. Talking about the amendments and the


obstruction is the opposition parties and some Tory backbenchers


could put in the way of all this. Nicola Sturgeon, Mr Farren and


Jeremy Corbyn, the suggestion from the paper is Nicola Sturgeon and Mr


Corbyn are somehow striking a pact. It suggests they are plotting to


undermine Theresa May's plans. I would be very surprised if they were


actually on the phone to each other trying to work on the way forward.


Some Scottish MPs have said they will table 50 amendments, which


means they might not just delay the process, but also shifted


considerably into their sort of Brexit, which as we know they didn't


want at all. So, one of these amendments is a proposal to block


Brexit entirely. The Liberal Democrats, for their part, are keen


to seek a second referendum and oppose triggering Article 50. There


MPs will vote against that. Labour, the big problem for them is how


individual MPs will vote because the party, Jeremy Corbyn said the party


will support continuing with the article 50 vote, but many individual


Labour MPs would be hard pushed who are in favour of that. Two thirds of


Labour voting constituencies voted in favour of Brexit. Judy Foote with


their conscience, their constituents or the national result? -- do they


vote? At the moment it would appear that are not enough MPs to stop


Brexit. There will be enough Tory MPs. The only one who seems to be


going to vote against it is Ken Clarke. The chances are that it will


go through, but there are a lot of fun and games on the way. The key


thing is we will be learning about Parliamentary procedure is that we


have never heard of in the next few weeks. What they are trying to find


is how do you" will probably be a one or two Kleinveldt? There isn't


much room to amend anything. What they will try to do is find a


Parliamentary procedure which means they can get something in there.


That is what they will be working on over the next few days. If they do,


if they find something that is in order, that will become part of the


vote. So, it might be, with Tory rebels, with Labour, with the SNP,


if they line, it is possible you could delay the process simply by


demanding the single market access. We are going to go on to the times


then. It is GPs draw up plans for patient charging. That sounds


alarming. It should be said that this is not one of the official


College of GPs or a proposal by a large group of them. This is a


senior GB in Oxford who is working with colleagues to develop this


proposal to charge patients for weekend or even appointments. There


has been a long-running dispute between doctors, between GPs and the


government. Theresa May once a seven day with access for all of us who


are hard at work during the day to be able to go to our GP in the


evening or at weekends and GPs are saying is not possible with the


money they have got. What they are suggesting is for particular types


of work, of procedures that they need, things like this actually and


non-cancerous mole removal, they could have that done at their GP and


be charged. Alarm bells start ringing about privatisation and lots


of people are not as sympathetic with GPs as with other doctors,


because the average salary is over ?100,000. They feel they should be


there to provide a service when it is needed. They would get a third


party to provide, a private company, to provide the procedure and they


would build the company. It is a kind of privatisation and people


will howl about it. I am a heretic on the NHS. I would ask people is to


think about a proposal like this. The NHS is unsustainable the way it


is going. We have broken the principle of free at the point of


use with dental charges, eye tests that we pay for. I have never


understood quite why everybody, whether you are a beginner could


actually go and see a GP for free. It costs ?25 every time. It seems to


me that people paying a certain amount who could afford it, and one


on pre-prescriptions, they carry on getting totally free health care,


that is most people. The ones who could afford it, I concede that is


the direction we will have to go and stop. I said it was a heresy. Jeremy


Corbyn will not be impressed. For the sick of my editor, this is not a


newspaper policy. I think this is a good headline, actually. When will


we ever learn? These are photographs of people on their phones while they


are driving. Very dangerous. This follows a crackdown by the police,


by traffic police on mobile phone use behind the wheel. It was a week


back in November when they caught a thousand drivers during the week


doing exactly this and many of them ended up with fines and points on


their licence. The government have been trying to toughen up, please


have been trying to toughen up with preventing people from doing this.


The public sentiment is starting to shift. There have been a couple of


horrific accidents at the end of last year when people were killed


because someone was on a mobile phone. It is like a drink-driving.


There was the social and cultural shift when it was an appalling thing


to do and this is going the same way. If you are a pedestrian or in


another car, you find yourself watching people using their phone. I


see people on bikes on their phones. At least it is a little bit slower.


They are less likely to go into a car and kill everyone. The Mirror is


the only paper to not have Brexit front and centre. There you go,


Daily Mirror, with your national epidemic of people on their phones


in their cars and vehicles. Many thanks for that. Thank you for


looking at the stories behind the headlines. Thank you for watching.


Do not forget that you can see the front pages of The Papers online on


the BBC News website. It is all there for you at the BBC website. If


you missed the proven anything you can watch it later on the eye


player. Not much rain in the forecast over


the next couple of days, but there will be fought again. That will be


the most disruptive element of the weather. We have some nasty patches


across southern counties, the areas of fog will expand across the


southern parts to eastern England
