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

:00:15.:00:17.

With me are the former Trade Minister, Lord Digby Jones and

:00:18.:00:22.

the Broadcaster and campaigner, Henry Bonsu.

:00:23.:00:24.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:25.:00:34.

The Metro leads with defeat for the Prime Minister

:00:35.:00:39.

after the House of Lords votes to amend the Brexit Bill.

:00:40.:00:43.

The Telegraph says Theresa May is determined to trigger

:00:44.:00:45.

Article 50 in two weeks, despite the setback created

:00:46.:00:47.

The Express says the House of Lords will fail to derail the government's

:00:48.:01:04.

plans for a hard Brexit. The Times, record highs. Markets on both sides

:01:05.:01:10.

of the Atlantic after President Trump's first speech to Congress.

:01:11.:01:13.

The I has a warning about the "perilous" state of policing -

:01:14.:01:16.

which it says is on the verge of a national crisis

:01:17.:01:19.

Daily Mail taking up that issue. Claiming tens of thousands of

:01:20.:01:27.

criminal suspects are on the loose because of substandard policing.

:01:28.:01:31.

Any one place to start. Brexit. You were in the Lords, you were voting?

:01:32.:01:45.

I obviously voted to ensure we get too March 15 with the service of

:01:46.:01:51.

article 15 notice for the country to start the process of leaving the

:01:52.:01:55.

European Union. You voted against the amendment? I wonder why it is

:01:56.:02:03.

that people think they can firstly overrule the will of the

:02:04.:02:08.

democratically elected House, but secondly trying to tamper with the

:02:09.:02:12.

will of the Democratic expression of the people? Vivre moaners and the

:02:13.:02:19.

seven tours are not stopping. What I find so strange about it. They would

:02:20.:02:28.

be absolutely condemning anyone saying no, no, this is the voice of

:02:29.:02:33.

the people. In case you forgot, it was a narrow victory. An

:02:34.:02:41.

-- it was a narrow victory. It was not a landslide, millions of people

:02:42.:02:50.

alarmed by the kind of Brexit. A lot of the speeches made in the Lords...

:02:51.:02:56.

If I can finish the point, that is why it is useful to have a revising

:02:57.:03:01.

chamber, not trying to thwart the will of the people, they are saying

:03:02.:03:08.

to the elected House we think you should think again. These are

:03:09.:03:13.

mature, experienced people. Lots of people. You, for example. What I'm

:03:14.:03:20.

saying, people who have lived, who have experience. Who are going to

:03:21.:03:26.

bring their experience to this. Very interesting that the government was

:03:27.:03:28.

defeated in this particular endeavour. We are talking about an

:03:29.:03:34.

amendment to try and guarantee the rights of EU citizens in the UK. On

:03:35.:03:40.

the point about the EU citizens: do they not need reassurance? Wouldn't

:03:41.:03:45.

this give them reassurance? I would go further, and I will come to that.

:03:46.:03:54.

You did interrupted me, but... I am so sorry, Digby. The House of Lords

:03:55.:04:00.

is like a nonexecutive director of the country. It revises, advisors,

:04:01.:04:06.

kicks up a stink. It must not overrule the executive committee

:04:07.:04:11.

democratically elected parliament. The legislature. It must not do

:04:12.:04:15.

that, it is getting perilously close. I was in there last week

:04:16.:04:21.

hearing the speeches. One after another, paraded out the same way. I

:04:22.:04:25.

will respect the will of the British people, Bert. The greatest lie I

:04:26.:04:31.

have ever heard. You have just done it now, it is the sort of Brexit. I

:04:32.:04:40.

want a soft Brexit. You're saying I want to stay in the single market.

:04:41.:04:56.

How do you know? If you want a soft Brexit, what you are after is

:04:57.:04:59.

staying in the single market, that means accepting free movement of

:05:00.:05:03.

labour, submissions to the European Court of Justice. People voted yes,

:05:04.:05:12.

no on a simple question. The detail is coming through. It is very

:05:13.:05:20.

important, and I'm delighted that intermittently telemark

:05:21.:05:23.

independently minded peers are saying to the government on that

:05:24.:05:26.

question, the rights of EU citizens, and that is what the government has

:05:27.:05:30.

been defeated on. They will go back to the Commons and the put through

:05:31.:05:37.

unopposed. You will be happy. The Telegraph, which we are reviewing,

:05:38.:05:42.

it will go ahead. Theresa May will still trigger Brexit in two weeks. I

:05:43.:05:49.

think it would be very good, the traditions of this nation to say to

:05:50.:05:52.

citizens here. Worrying, you will fined here -- you will be fine. Did

:05:53.:06:03.

you vote for that amendment? No, I would not overrule the Commons. I

:06:04.:06:08.

would not fetter the power of the negotiating power of our government

:06:09.:06:13.

in negotiations. Why aren't you all saying to the French, give us the

:06:14.:06:17.

right for our citizens to live in Europe? People have been saying

:06:18.:06:23.

that. The European Union has said they were not discuss this until

:06:24.:06:29.

triggered. Why are you asking us to do that? Britain talks about being

:06:30.:06:33.

in splendid isolation. Moral leader in the world. If you really are the

:06:34.:06:41.

moral leader in the world. You want to cut down our negotiating power.

:06:42.:06:51.

If she loses the negotiation, you will blame her. Come on, you lost.

:06:52.:06:57.

If she is going to lose, she will lose many other things, but not

:06:58.:07:00.

this. We need to move on to something that is not Brexit. Not

:07:01.:07:05.

immediately to do with Brexit. Donald Trump made the speech in

:07:06.:07:11.

Congress. Hailed as his most considered very and presidential to

:07:12.:07:16.

date. As a result, the stock markets hitting a record high. Are you

:07:17.:07:23.

surprised? It is all apple pie at the moment. Donald Trump very good

:07:24.:07:28.

shaping the narrative, linking himself to Brexit, talking about a

:07:29.:07:31.

guy who loves America, where the previous guy did not. He will be a

:07:32.:07:34.

president for business. Some economic forecasters calling it a

:07:35.:07:42.

fragile bloom. Talking about spending money on roads, gas

:07:43.:07:48.

pipelines, increasing the defence budget by $54 billion. It sounds

:07:49.:07:50.

great, but somebody has to pay for it. People are still spending on

:07:51.:07:55.

both sides of the pond could, but Andrew Milligan, head of strategy at

:07:56.:08:01.

standard life investments, investors remain concerned over the

:08:02.:08:04.

affordability of tax cuts, spending booms, and the consequences of

:08:05.:08:12.

protectionist trade. This author spending, something you might say

:08:13.:08:21.

she had with Democrat? He's not really a Republican, he is his own

:08:22.:08:25.

man. He was promising to spend on infrastructure, everybody in the 50

:08:26.:08:31.

states knows it is crumbling. He's doing what he said it would do. This

:08:32.:08:37.

is all tonal, because of the tone of the speech, so much more moderate, I

:08:38.:08:42.

want to bring people together on this great adventure. Two people

:08:43.:08:47.

have responded, Congress did, Congress intimating he will get his

:08:48.:08:53.

tax cuts pushed through. Secondly the markets respond. I would hope he

:08:54.:08:58.

would start engaging the brain before opening his mouth and

:08:59.:09:04.

pressing text button. He has suddenly thought to himself, when

:09:05.:09:07.

I'm a little bit more measured people do things I want. I hope the

:09:08.:09:15.

penny drops. The bar is set so low, that is why people are delighted. We

:09:16.:09:22.

haven't got time for you talk so much about Brexit. Do not start that

:09:23.:09:31.

again. A company bosses quitting amid claims of profit chilly

:09:32.:09:38.

profiteering. This used to drive me mad. This country has committed 0.7%

:09:39.:09:49.

of GDP, 14 billion, I'm sorry, 13 billion. Regardless of where it is

:09:50.:09:55.

spent, anything else, we are closing libraries at home, we will spend

:09:56.:10:01.

this money. Of its own, not a bad idea. The places and the way they

:10:02.:10:05.

are spending it is a waste of money. What it is doing here, the aid

:10:06.:10:11.

budget has doubled on what they spend on consultants. Not giving

:10:12.:10:16.

money to help starving kids in Sudan, ?1 billion a year increase

:10:17.:10:21.

since 2012 on consultants, paying themselves. I agree with you. The

:10:22.:10:29.

money is not going to people who need it in the nations we hope to

:10:30.:10:34.

trade with post-Brexit. People in Britain. Next time people in the

:10:35.:10:37.

Daily Mail complain about the aid budget, that at British companies

:10:38.:10:41.

making money off the back of it, not people in poorer countries. Since

:10:42.:10:45.

you mention the Daily Mail. Talk us through the front page. Policing in

:10:46.:10:52.

meltdown. Tens of thousands of crime suspects on the loose figures of

:10:53.:10:56.

near perilous policing. Lots of different ways of slicing it. The

:10:57.:11:00.

police do not know what they are doing. Inexperienced people running

:11:01.:11:04.

constabularies. Or the natural consequences in police budgets. It

:11:05.:11:08.

might be both, the devil is in the detail and confiscated. 46,000

:11:09.:11:16.

suspects now on the police wanted database, 343 sought for very

:11:17.:11:19.

serious crimes like murder and manslaughter. This is the reason why

:11:20.:11:25.

the Daily Mail see fit to put on the front page. It is a bit of both.

:11:26.:11:31.

Inefficiency and poor management, it is low morale, that is leadership,

:11:32.:11:38.

low morale. And it is going to be a lack of money. You put the three

:11:39.:11:42.

together, you get that. It is worrying. All right thrust in the

:11:43.:11:48.

studio talking about it. What about if you are one of the victims of the

:11:49.:11:54.

1012 rapists. I'm sure you enjoy talking to each other! I can't

:11:55.:11:59.

believe Digby is leaking what happened in the green room. That is

:12:00.:12:01.

against the rules. Many thanks. That's it for The Papers tonight
