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

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Claire Cohen, Women's Editor of the Daily

:00:17.:00:19.

Telegraph and broadcaster David Davies.

:00:20.:00:26.

Good to have you both. Watford fan, United fan.

:00:27.:00:31.

The i leads with an exclusive story about sweeping changes

:00:32.:00:33.

to the NHS that could lead to some hospitals closing.

:00:34.:00:35.

The Metro focuses on the death of city banker Oliver Dearlove

:00:36.:00:38.

who was killed with a single punch on a night out.

:00:39.:00:42.

The Telegraph says doctors are failing to prescribe women

:00:43.:00:44.

a pill that can cut the risk of breast cancer by a third

:00:45.:00:48.

because many doctors are unaware that it can be used

:00:49.:00:50.

People using public transport face much higher pollution levels than

:00:51.:01:05.

people using a car. They express claims EU bosses have a rosy

:01:06.:01:11.

economic future despite the Brexit boat.

:01:12.:01:22.

The new judge to replace Mary Berry on the great British bake-off will

:01:23.:01:29.

be trollied. Most exciting news of the night. Good choice.

:01:30.:01:37.

We will move on to the NHS. 19 NHS hospitals face closure splashed

:01:38.:01:49.

across the front page of the i. 19 hospitals facing closure is a

:01:50.:01:53.

shocking statistic in a range of data that the i have got here. It is

:01:54.:02:01.

the sustainability and transformation plans for the NHS,

:02:02.:02:06.

which we are told six out of ten people have never heard of. It is

:02:07.:02:10.

the biggest shake-up in a generation of the NHS by March 2021 but due to

:02:11.:02:18.

be finalised in April. Nobody has heard of it and campaigners are

:02:19.:02:24.

questioning its legality. So patient groups haven't been consulted and

:02:25.:02:30.

the public haven't been consulted? We don't even necessarily know what

:02:31.:02:33.

is going on and it is hard to unpick. But the topline seems to be

:02:34.:02:38.

19 NHS hospital closures and steering care back into the

:02:39.:02:43.

community away from the emergency wards. And talk about virtual

:02:44.:02:47.

doctors. In one case, potentially using libraries to see patients

:02:48.:02:52.

within communities. Are there even any libraries left, you have to

:02:53.:02:59.

lass? It might be a brilliant idea. The i says it is covering this on

:03:00.:03:02.

seven pages. No one has heard of this. On the one hand, credit where

:03:03.:03:10.

it is due, you as a newspaper person will tell me, this is an

:03:11.:03:14.

old-fashioned scoop. No doubt about that. That is one side of it. 19

:03:15.:03:23.

hospitals, including five major acute hospitals are marked for

:03:24.:03:27.

closure to plug this ?22 billion black hole in funding. It may come

:03:28.:03:31.

as a shock to people in places like St Helier, Epsom, Croydon and

:03:32.:03:39.

Kingston, Ealing and that is just in the South before you get to the

:03:40.:03:43.

Black Country and Bournemouth and Poole. That their hospitals are

:03:44.:03:48.

under threat tonight. That is what we are talking about. Remodelling

:03:49.:03:54.

the NHS in England after analysis of 44 regional plans. The heart of the

:03:55.:04:03.

NHS is to move, if these plans were to be developed, from the hospital

:04:04.:04:09.

closer to the patients, to the community with some notable

:04:10.:04:16.

exceptions. More big centres, for example, something close to some

:04:17.:04:21.

others, stroke units are going to be centralised more than they are. And

:04:22.:04:29.

that, it is presumed, will be good news for stroke sufferers. Likewise,

:04:30.:04:34.

we are told for other services, major trauma services. More

:04:35.:04:38.

specialist units dealing with that one or two crucial issues. You have

:04:39.:04:45.

all the specialisms in one place, on the face of it, it makes sense but

:04:46.:04:49.

there has been no consultation according to the i and that is the

:04:50.:04:55.

bizarre thing. Also the mention there will be a loss of more than

:04:56.:05:00.

3000 jobs to create a smaller, more agile workforce. You don't have to

:05:01.:05:06.

be a genius to suggest this will cause a row to end all rows,

:05:07.:05:12.

politically. We wonder if the NHS can take any more. But this could be

:05:13.:05:19.

round the corner. The Telegraph. A cancer pill being denied to half a

:05:20.:05:23.

million women and this is because GPs don't know this pill actually

:05:24.:05:30.

works for cancer? It is a next-door Rene -- extraordinary story. It

:05:31.:05:36.

should be prescribed to women who have a medium to high risk of breast

:05:37.:05:44.

cancer, those who have a family risk, half a million people but

:05:45.:05:48.

doctors don't seem to be prescribing it. 24% of doctors, University

:05:49.:05:53.

College London has found in its research, were aware of the guidance

:05:54.:05:57.

but not doing it. It is a drug that could reduce the chances of breast

:05:58.:06:03.

cancer. You take it every day for five years protection can last for

:06:04.:06:08.

two decades. Imagine the benefits to the NHS, as well as plenty of lives.

:06:09.:06:15.

Why aren't they prescribing it? The medical profession, the defence of

:06:16.:06:19.

this would surely be, the medical profession, the right tablets and

:06:20.:06:23.

the right treatment is moving on at such a pace, hang on a minute, I

:06:24.:06:28.

might be a GP who has been working for 30 years, no wonder they are all

:06:29.:06:33.

retiring early, or we told lots of them are. The worrying thing, in the

:06:34.:06:39.

very first paragraph of this story it says, GPs are unaware they be

:06:40.:06:45.

providing this drug. That is extraordinary. It is bizarre because

:06:46.:06:49.

the story goes on to say that The Tablet is only licensed for treating

:06:50.:06:54.

breast cancer. If they are unaware they should be prescribing it for

:06:55.:06:57.

breast cancer patients, very confused. It is a very odd story.

:06:58.:07:06.

Staying with the Telegraph, David, the Bank of England behind the

:07:07.:07:10.

Co-op's sale. Apparently they don't have a deep enough war chest for bad

:07:11.:07:14.

times and their capital fund is not deep enough. So they will flog the

:07:15.:07:21.

place? That is the role of the Bank of England to tell us when the

:07:22.:07:27.

banks, individual banks are in some difficulty, or might be in some

:07:28.:07:31.

difficulty, in terms of the new capital rules that were introduced

:07:32.:07:37.

after all the problems of 2008. But the problem with the Co-op bank,

:07:38.:07:42.

some of us have a lot of time for it and its customers, as far as we can

:07:43.:07:46.

see, this talk about the excellent service, the customer service they

:07:47.:07:52.

get, is the brand, the Co-op bank brands, the perception of the Co-op

:07:53.:07:58.

bank, suffered enormously in 2008 and various other personal events

:07:59.:08:05.

closer to the former chairman since. And for a bank to recover its image,

:08:06.:08:14.

it's perception is immensely hard, ask RBS. Sure, but those who are

:08:15.:08:22.

with the Co-op, they see it as vital to why they bank with it. I

:08:23.:08:28.

interviewed a guy this evening he was saying, look, there will be

:08:29.:08:36.

takers out there who have the same ethical responsibilities and the

:08:37.:08:39.

same ethos as the Co-op. If not, then sell it to the customers

:08:40.:08:43.

themselves, which has happened before in France. I should think the

:08:44.:08:50.

Co-op's bank 4 million customers are in fear of it being bought up by

:08:51.:08:55.

another bank and being consumed. They are very loyal to the brand,

:08:56.:08:59.

but they must be worried. We got the stage the first half of last year it

:09:00.:09:05.

had ?177 million of losses. They don't have the full figures but they

:09:06.:09:09.

are expecting significantly more and hedge fund managers and the owners

:09:10.:09:13.

are refusing to put more money into it because they don't think it is

:09:14.:09:18.

liable. Whoever buys it will have two strong club tens of millions

:09:19.:09:23.

just to deepen those rainy day pockets that are needed by banks

:09:24.:09:28.

these days. Who is going to buy it? Good question. The Guardian,

:09:29.:09:37.

President Trump and Prime Minister Trudeau, behind-the-scenes, two

:09:38.:09:39.

very, very different characters. Pretty much chalk and cheese, it has

:09:40.:09:47.

to be said. But in front of the cameras, trying to find common

:09:48.:09:50.

ground on a range of issues. An interesting meeting? Like you say,

:09:51.:09:57.

different men and trying to be diplomatic, especially in this

:09:58.:10:00.

picture, which you are probably aware has gone viral online and

:10:01.:10:08.

there is lots of things appearing. I do want to take your hand, he is

:10:09.:10:15.

about to shake his hand. He did it with a woman Prime Minister didn't

:10:16.:10:23.

he, a few weeks ago. He did indeed. I think the New York Times said

:10:24.:10:26.

Justin Trudeau was mentally going through the pros and cons in his

:10:27.:10:32.

head. It was a diplomatic meeting, both treading carefully. Justin

:10:33.:10:35.

Trudeau saying he is not going to lecture Trott, that is not his job

:10:36.:10:39.

and that is not what the Canadian people would want him to do. --

:10:40.:10:45.

Trump. But they have shaken hands. Perhaps they did achieve something.

:10:46.:10:50.

One of the other papers as Ivanka Trump meeting with Justin Trudeau.

:10:51.:10:59.

We are told the neighbouring countries, the two countries have

:11:00.:11:03.

launched a new task force called the United States Canada Council for the

:11:04.:11:07.

advancement of women business leaders female entrepreneurs. I got

:11:08.:11:15.

that out! Very catchy. I should have put all those letters together.

:11:16.:11:19.

Ivanka Trump, she is right in the heart of what is going on in that

:11:20.:11:24.

Administration. Justin Trudeau is sat next to her on the front of the

:11:25.:11:29.

Telegraph. The continuing problem with the Trump family, she has a

:11:30.:11:34.

massive business. If she is part of trade initiatives, considering she

:11:35.:11:39.

has a huge business, is there a conflict of interest? Potentially,

:11:40.:11:43.

we are told it was her who secured the female executive members of this

:11:44.:11:47.

new group and is at the centre of it. Potentially she could be

:11:48.:11:52.

criticised. Huffington Post, I think we can ring this up on our monitors.

:11:53.:12:00.

Pension rise to be despite people who are retired being better off

:12:01.:12:06.

than working household, confirms Theresa May, David? I heard about

:12:07.:12:12.

this story today. As a person, as I seem to rather to regularly on this

:12:13.:12:22.

slot, on BBC News, of a certain age, successive governments, let's be

:12:23.:12:26.

fair to the baby boomers generation... Why? Because we should

:12:27.:12:39.

be. Because you are one of them. Successive governments have, at

:12:40.:12:43.

last, in the past ten years reverse generations of not looking after the

:12:44.:12:49.

elderly. Some of us would argue. I am surprised by this story the

:12:50.:12:54.

Number Ten spokesman is confirming that Theresa May is going to keep

:12:55.:13:02.

this triple lock. It is a manifesto commitment and it will be kept.

:13:03.:13:12.

People must be aware, the other thing I always associate, when I

:13:13.:13:16.

first saw this story, was about savings. You associate older people

:13:17.:13:20.

with savings. Unless I am mistaken, savings rates for the past few years

:13:21.:13:27.

have been horrendous. Absolutely dreadful. That is an important

:13:28.:13:32.

point. The other point is, it is not necessarily pension is getting

:13:33.:13:35.

richer, it is the rest of us are getting... Your age always comes up.

:13:36.:13:43.

We are getting poorer. It is stagnant wages and the triple lock

:13:44.:13:48.

that have affected this. Also, someone else as a certain age, just

:13:49.:13:54.

a millennial, it is an important story. We are the first generation

:13:55.:13:58.

who will not be wealthy. Are you angry about this? I am angry. I am

:13:59.:14:06.

angry for you and my daughters and grandchildren. We thank the baby

:14:07.:14:13.

boomers for their concern. Nobody is happy about this outcome. Should the

:14:14.:14:17.

triple lock stay there? I think it will go. Whether it should, I

:14:18.:14:24.

suspect our successes in ten or 15 years will be having the opposite

:14:25.:14:29.

conversation. I don't think it is sustainable. On election day, you

:14:30.:14:38.

get up and go and vote. Claire is watching Watford on telly. I hope

:14:39.:14:43.

your generation will get out there and vote. That will have to be part

:14:44.:14:50.

of it. It has been good having you with us looking at the stories. But

:14:51.:14:54.

it now, don't forget you can see front pages on the BBC News website.

:14:55.:15:04.

If you have missed the programme, you can watch it later on at your

:15:05.:15:10.

leisure with a glass of wine on the iPlayer. Thank you to my guests and

:15:11.:15:13.

to you for watching. Goodbye.

:15:14.:15:21.
