:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:19.

With me are Robert Fox, who's Defence Editor

:00:20.:00:22.

at the London Evening Standard, and the former Conservative

:00:23.:00:24.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with -

:00:25.:00:27.

the Daily Telegraph leads on analysis by the Health Service

:00:28.:00:30.

Journal of plans to close A and E units in England

:00:31.:00:33.

It reports that up to one in six casualty departments face closure.

:00:34.:00:38.

Health is also the focus of the Times' lead story -

:00:39.:00:41.

It reports that hospitals will be legally obliged to charge foreign

:00:42.:00:46.

patients - before they're allowed access to NHS health care.

:00:47.:00:50.

The Express also leads with the crackdown on health tourism

:00:51.:00:53.

writing that the responsibility will lie with hospitals to charge

:00:54.:00:55.

foreign nationals wanting medical treatment.

:00:56.:00:59.

Rent Revolution - that's the headline on the front

:01:00.:01:05.

of the Metro, referring to a shift in tone by the Conservatives'

:01:06.:01:08.

from their 'right to buy' policy, towards affordable homes to rent.

:01:09.:01:11.

The FT has a picture of the French far right leader Marine Le Pen -

:01:12.:01:15.

as she launched her presidential bid today.

:01:16.:01:17.

But the newspaper leads with comments from some leaders

:01:18.:01:20.

from Britain's biggest companies warning that companies are already

:01:21.:01:25.

The Guardian looks at the controversial travel ban imposed

:01:26.:01:28.

by Donald Trump, but rejected by a US appeals court.

:01:29.:01:31.

And staying with Trump - the I reports that some Mps

:01:32.:01:35.

And staying with Trump - the I reports that some MPs

:01:36.:01:38.

are threatening to boycott a state visit by the US president.

:01:39.:01:41.

Blackmailing Beckham - The Mirror reports on an apparent

:01:42.:01:44.

one million pound plot over hacked emails from David Beckham.

:01:45.:01:49.

Plot, it is a word only journalists use. Let's start with Marine Le Pen,

:01:50.:01:59.

one of several French president shall hopefuls who launched their

:02:00.:02:06.

campaign this weekend. Leon seems to be the city of choice. Marine Le Pen

:02:07.:02:13.

joint election race by attacking globalisation. Her support base have

:02:14.:02:22.

made her so popular and put the and enviable position and it reminds us

:02:23.:02:30.

of how you keep managed to appeal to a desperate group of people. --

:02:31.:02:38.

Ukip. She is saying she is freeing them of globalisation, Islamic

:02:39.:02:45.

fundamentalism and European Union. What is at stake in this election is

:02:46.:02:49.

that the continuity of France as a free nation, the very existence of

:02:50.:02:55.

our people. She is reaching out, you were saying, you have a sense of

:02:56.:03:01.

what is going on on the ground whereas I reading what is on the

:03:02.:03:07.

papers. People say she will win in round one but not round super you

:03:08.:03:11.

are saying in the central parts of France people feeling more connected

:03:12.:03:18.

with her? The equivalent of the rustbelt where the old industrial

:03:19.:03:24.

Park, new industries came in at the end of the wall, an interesting

:03:25.:03:30.

survey in the New York Times in the international European edition,

:03:31.:03:39.

going through a number of towns and cities and small villages, very

:03:40.:03:48.

mixed but the swing was absolutely palpable of traditional,

:03:49.:03:53.

conservative supporters saying she is the one. Watching the television

:03:54.:03:58.

footage of her rally, she had written across the screen the simple

:03:59.:04:07.

slogan - in the name of the people. That is Trump, that is Nigel Farage.

:04:08.:04:16.

Very successful, charismatic banker but will be much together and it is

:04:17.:04:23.

not the same thing and he is part of the elite she is talking to,

:04:24.:04:29.

Emmanuel Macron. She is saying the use of the failed by Muslim women is

:04:30.:04:36.

a threat to French culture and values. That is nothing new. It is

:04:37.:04:43.

not that it is not going to unify everyone. She once the distance

:04:44.:04:52.

herself from her father, the founder of the party. She is reaching out

:04:53.:04:58.

beyond that and looking at the footage from the BBC coverage, who

:04:59.:05:05.

was in the audience? Students, teachers, private and is. They are

:05:06.:05:11.

saying this is the woman who can take us through. -- private and

:05:12.:05:24.

public set this. Now the reason the scandal by Francois Fillon. He is

:05:25.:05:34.

fading away and that what you have is the outsiders coming forward but

:05:35.:05:42.

they are both political... They have been around a lot and they are

:05:43.:05:48.

coming forward. Is her thing about the EU and she is saying she wants

:05:49.:05:53.

French citizens to feel French again, she wants the European Union

:05:54.:05:59.

to be a union of Nations, very much in the John Major, David Cameron

:06:00.:06:06.

view and Emmanuel Macron says, no, we come together, the big project of

:06:07.:06:12.

the ever coming together and I think that will be a real division and you

:06:13.:06:18.

are getting a big swing away. Before the Brexit debate, according to an

:06:19.:06:26.

analysis, more French were opposed to the EU than in the British

:06:27.:06:35.

electorate so watch out. Yes, she will win first round and lose on the

:06:36.:06:41.

second, do not count on it. You heard it from Mr Fox, remember. In

:06:42.:06:50.

the Times, one in six wards facing axe to try and save some money which

:06:51.:07:02.

is extraordinary how overcrowded some hospitals are. It looks as if

:07:03.:07:11.

they are trying to look to rebalance services but at the same time they

:07:12.:07:18.

are saying to close a hole in the budget as well. It is a big hole. It

:07:19.:07:26.

is but more and more money has gone in. It seems to be demand is

:07:27.:07:31.

outgrowing the extra amount of money. Whether it is people's

:07:32.:07:39.

expectations, people living longer, the pharmaceutical industry, what

:07:40.:07:46.

ever it is, we need to look at it. Instead of a tribal divide, people

:07:47.:07:54.

are saying what are we going to do. In more recent years, the actual

:07:55.:07:58.

amount of money spent on the NHS has gone down. Slightly more than the

:07:59.:08:07.

GDP we were spending before. The amount NHS England said they needed

:08:08.:08:12.

was handed to them when David Cameron and George Osborne came in.

:08:13.:08:15.

The next ?20 million was given to them. Foreign patients to pay up

:08:16.:08:22.

front for NHS care. Hospitals will be legally obliged to try to recover

:08:23.:08:27.

this money but if somebody comes in and really need attention, do you

:08:28.:08:33.

present them with a credit card machine? Exactly. It is so

:08:34.:08:40.

difficult. With so many of these ideas, one understands why it they

:08:41.:08:46.

are saying it but it is a question of enforcement. How are you going to

:08:47.:08:53.

check? Emergency care is something different, surely. From the

:08:54.:08:59.

Telegraph, a black all of 22 million. But 500 million in The

:09:00.:09:15.

Times. It you do not pay into this in system you cannot expect to be

:09:16.:09:22.

using it. We do not know because nobody has ever been a really

:09:23.:09:27.

questioned at the front desk. It could EA significant figure. You

:09:28.:09:33.

have the said proof of eligibility is needed. People pay. People having

:09:34.:09:41.

hospital treatment delayed or cancelled and somewhat coming in

:09:42.:09:47.

from abroad is taking their place. Lots of inequality. People will have

:09:48.:09:54.

to pay. In the Daily Mail, this idea, the emphasis being on renting

:09:55.:10:01.

rather than home ownership. Downsizing revolution. The desperate

:10:02.:10:06.

minister saying you will be given incentives to free up your homes -

:10:07.:10:13.

what incentives? Exactly. He doesn't sound pretty desperate. The quotes

:10:14.:10:18.

are not really fit what he seems to be trying to say. The Housing

:10:19.:10:24.

Minister saying to people like me, you do not have your children at

:10:25.:10:29.

home but you may have other things, squirrels in the roof, a computer,

:10:30.:10:36.

you have to downsize. What is the incentive to get out? To go into

:10:37.:10:44.

sheltered accommodation! A healthy sector should nary an aura even in

:10:45.:10:50.

the 80s, that is a fully shut statement. --A healthy 70-year-old.

:10:51.:11:00.

People live much older. Many of us can expect to live into your 90s and

:11:01.:11:05.

you are suddenly expect that with horrendous daily deals. Is this an

:11:06.:11:12.

end to the conservative mantra, almost, home ownership for everybody

:11:13.:11:18.

is gone for good? Everybody still despise to home ownership but what

:11:19.:11:23.

we have got is not a single silver bullet to solve the problem on

:11:24.:11:31.

housing affordability. 300,000 extra people coming in a year. We have to

:11:32.:11:36.

house of them. We have said for years we need to build more homes.

:11:37.:11:44.

Not enough houses and inbuilt. Most people in their home have thought

:11:45.:11:49.

about downsizing if they can release the money. You have to help with the

:11:50.:11:56.

rent costs. Build more housing. That is the only way forward but Margaret

:11:57.:12:04.

Thatcher... It has moved on. A different solution. It is a

:12:05.:12:11.

different country. Rebel attacks and all sorts of ingenious amendments

:12:12.:12:16.

tabled to put a spanner in the works? Over 100 amendments and some

:12:17.:12:26.

of the ones where people are trying to apply - one that Brexit can be

:12:27.:12:39.

treated as if Cardiff airport. People have said we want Brexit...

:12:40.:12:50.

That people have spoken. Like any other democratic vote, the majority.

:12:51.:12:56.

A slight margin. What about the minority? Do we not have a

:12:57.:13:05.

democracy? You are all Remainers said he did not quite get... I... I

:13:06.:13:15.

agree with you but this marking around with amendments is complete

:13:16.:13:21.

nonsense. What are these people, they are growing smoke... Do not say

:13:22.:13:31.

that word. This is where our Prime Minister has to say, we need to see

:13:32.:13:38.

what is going to come out in the detail, it is the devil in the

:13:39.:13:43.

details. Sorry to coin and other... Thinking of Marine Le Pen and the

:13:44.:13:49.

elections in Europe, Europe is going to be a very, very different place

:13:50.:13:57.

by the end of the year. I can with cliches but not vulgarities, even at

:13:58.:14:02.

this time. I apologise. We are sensitive, aren't we here at the

:14:03.:14:08.

papers! All the front pages are online.

:14:09.:14:19.

Each night's edition of the papers is posted on the page shortly after

:14:20.:14:27.

we finish. No excuses for not being up-to-date. Coming up next, The Film
