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

:00:18.:00:21.

With me are Ben Riley-Smith, Deputy Political Editor

:00:22.:00:24.

of The Telegraph and John Crowley, Editor in Chief of

:00:25.:00:26.

Tomorrow's front pages...starting with...

:00:27.:00:28.

The Daily Express leads with a 'new tax on inheritance'.

:00:29.:00:33.

The paper says a "death tax" is among policies being presented

:00:34.:00:35.

to Theresa May to help combat the cost of caring for older people.

:00:36.:00:39.

The lead story of the Telegraph explains that scientists have

:00:40.:00:41.

successfully created an embryo using only stem cells

:00:42.:00:43.

The Mirror leads with a report which reveals four in five

:00:44.:00:50.

Guardian has an exclusive interview with the head of MI6. The Daily Mail

:00:51.:01:05.

leads with the plague of the fly-tippers, an epidemic.

:01:06.:01:11.

Snap's debut on the New York Stock Exchange is the top story

:01:12.:01:13.

It says shares in Snapchat's parent company soared more than 40per cent,

:01:14.:01:17.

'Pay as you learn' is the main headline in The I, which says some

:01:18.:01:21.

schools are asking parents to pay ?600 to cover costs for course

:01:22.:01:24.

The Times says British taxpayers will help to fund a private army to

:01:25.:01:39.

protect NEPs as part of a record spending spree by the European

:01:40.:01:50.

Parliament next year. What will we go with? The Tories said Nicola

:01:51.:01:55.

Sturgeon should face bigger loss and second referendum. The suggestion is

:01:56.:02:02.

from Ruth Davidson, the leader of the Conservatives in Scotland, that

:02:03.:02:05.

if she pushes ahead with the second independence referendum, they will

:02:06.:02:09.

lose even worse than they did before? We don't quite know what

:02:10.:02:15.

basing this on. The Pauling doesn't suggest that? It doesn't. I don't

:02:16.:02:21.

think she will be disappointed to hear this because she's taking the

:02:22.:02:25.

battle on their ground. This was supposed to be put to bed fairly

:02:26.:02:29.

generation in 2014. Two or three years later and here we are talking

:02:30.:02:33.

about a "I don't think Nicola Sturgeon will mind the Conservatives

:02:34.:02:39.

saying this. Brexit has opened this can of worms again, but Scottish

:02:40.:02:42.

voters will probably have to look at the maths of the currency and

:02:43.:02:46.

economy even more closely because they are not part of, leaving a

:02:47.:02:53.

country that has already left the European Union. Absolutely and that

:02:54.:02:58.

is sought-after till really second referendum would move up because it

:02:59.:03:00.

is moving so swiftly right now that the Unionists would certainly say,

:03:01.:03:07.

listen, 2014 when you lost you said you had billions of pounds of our

:03:08.:03:09.

money and no you don't have that revenue, you said you were going to

:03:10.:03:16.

be able to keep Scotland in the EU, we are leaving the EU but do you

:03:17.:03:21.

want to break up a whole other union? Things have deteriorated in

:03:22.:03:25.

Scottish finances over the last couple of years and those problems

:03:26.:03:27.

remain the same, what currency would they use? What will happen on the

:03:28.:03:36.

border where trade passes so freely? Those unanswered questions just a

:03:37.:03:42.

significant. Does the possibility of a second vote figure in any way high

:03:43.:03:50.

up the agenda for Theresa May, when she's going through the

:03:51.:03:54.

negotiations, is that at the back of her mind? Possibly not high enough.

:03:55.:04:00.

Theresa May says the first thing I did when I became Prime Minister was

:04:01.:04:02.

go straight up to Scotland because I believe in it so much. When you talk

:04:03.:04:09.

to Theresa May's ministers, very really do they bring up the fact

:04:10.:04:13.

that they need to think of Scotland's interests and the

:04:14.:04:15.

Scottish angle for every one of these moving parts, so they would be

:04:16.:04:20.

but that, but you don't get that feeling walking around Westminster.

:04:21.:04:26.

Artificial life created in the lab. Cracking story on the front of the

:04:27.:04:29.

Telegraph. Probably scary for some as well? Yes. This is about managing

:04:30.:04:40.

to create, and this applies to mice, a leading mouse embryo without using

:04:41.:04:45.

spare or an egg, so a petri dish, even moving beyond spare and eggs

:04:46.:04:52.

vary your fusing together sells, so what is interesting is that

:04:53.:04:55.

currently leftover embryos must be destroyed after 14 days. This raises

:04:56.:05:01.

the notion that if this is being done on an industrial scale, and it

:05:02.:05:06.

may be an opportunity for the scientific industry to investigate

:05:07.:05:11.

more, but it raises moral questions about life so it may be saving lives

:05:12.:05:20.

by a world we want to? Exactly, because the ethical considerations

:05:21.:05:24.

in all of this, scientists can do amazing things and the life without

:05:25.:05:32.

sperm and eggs, but it raises so many more questions? It is mind

:05:33.:05:37.

boggling so I will not be able to shed too much more light but judging

:05:38.:05:42.

by the people quoted, this is a breakthrough and science at its

:05:43.:05:47.

best. Cambridge scientists. Something hugely significant this

:05:48.:05:50.

year and at the end of the article it actually talks about how good

:05:51.:05:53.

Britain is that this kind of thing, we were the guys who created Dolly

:05:54.:05:58.

the sheep and last year British scientists were given permission to

:05:59.:06:02.

genetically modify human embryos, the first in the world. Something

:06:03.:06:09.

fantastic. Scientists and priests may have something to say about it.

:06:10.:06:15.

The story is getting hotter than America with the US law chief forced

:06:16.:06:21.

out of enquiry into Russian links. Jeff Sessions, the Attorney General,

:06:22.:06:26.

said in a confirmation hearing he hadn't had contact with the Russians

:06:27.:06:29.

and it transpired he has and he has had to recuse himself from the

:06:30.:06:33.

investigation into the links between the campaign and Russian... Spies,

:06:34.:06:46.

ambassadors. All the above! It is an interesting story and reason so many

:06:47.:06:49.

questions about what those links exactly are between the tram

:06:50.:06:56.

campaign and Russia. Another of those jaw-dropping moments and at

:06:57.:06:59.

some point you think the bandwagon will have to calm down, possibly

:07:00.:07:03.

less conciliatory speech was the moment, and then this phenomenal

:07:04.:07:09.

point where Jeff Sessions, his Attorney General, first under oath

:07:10.:07:13.

when being tried out for the Yule said he hadn't had any contact with

:07:14.:07:19.

senior Russians. Now it has emerged these two ambassadors he has had

:07:20.:07:25.

contact with, he said he will recuse himself from any investigation into

:07:26.:07:28.

the tram campaign, but interestingly he didn't say it was because he had

:07:29.:07:33.

links, but because I was part of the trompe campaigns or should step

:07:34.:07:36.

away. It feels like one who will run and run. You have got an alert that

:07:37.:07:46.

plays the Star Spangled Banner whenever Donald Trump tweets and he

:07:47.:07:52.

hasn't tweeted on this? He hasn't, and maybe that is the lack of

:07:53.:07:56.

support you may looking for and we were looking and the way to check

:07:57.:08:01.

that, has he tweeted it out? What was interesting about this is he

:08:02.:08:08.

stood traditionally in front of a podium. Tonight. Donald Trump would

:08:09.:08:14.

have done that, gone on to Twitter and shouted down, so 40 days into

:08:15.:08:22.

Donald Trump's rain and it feels like a state of permanent resolution

:08:23.:08:25.

where he is fighting battles all the time! First-day lead yesterday. He

:08:26.:08:32.

has given up for Lent, that is at! That is he hasn't tweeted! Jesus

:08:33.:08:39.

walked in the wilderness for 40 days, you have a president with a

:08:40.:08:44.

messiah complex staggering from one thing to another. There is a

:08:45.:08:48.

metaphor somewhere! You have it here first. In 40 days each week but you

:08:49.:08:56.

might be late. Still with the Guardian, the new MI6 boss, less

:08:57.:09:08.

white and less like James Bond. This is good. This is a very interesting

:09:09.:09:11.

piece from the Guardian where they now think he should be able to do

:09:12.:09:15.

the tap on the shoulder, but they want to get away from those Oxbridge

:09:16.:09:22.

types in the old days. Now they want to broaden the Tote to the wider

:09:23.:09:29.

community, and a good thing too. It makes perfect sense and the diverse

:09:30.:09:33.

workforce is by a lot of measures very productive. Two really

:09:34.:09:38.

interesting bits, the first is not saying they need to become more

:09:39.:09:43.

diverse, he is actually seeing our normal system applications isn't

:09:44.:09:47.

working. We need to go to wonder you tap people on the shoulder. Target

:09:48.:09:55.

people specifically. The quote and not wanting these James Bond types

:09:56.:09:59.

to come. He says you're getting this surge of people based on the James

:10:00.:10:05.

Bond fantasy, he says they may well be witty as a revolver but that is

:10:06.:10:08.

not we are looking for. People are coming up. As long as we still get

:10:09.:10:16.

to have gadgets and use them. You can't be aspired not have an Aston

:10:17.:10:25.

Martin! Onto the times. Taxpayers must fund Brussels Private army. A

:10:26.:10:33.

spending spree, from the times, when it comes to Brussels. Before the UK

:10:34.:10:40.

exits they want to get a bit more money out of this. That is the

:10:41.:10:46.

implication. Estimates seen by the Times show the parliament budget

:10:47.:10:51.

rising to, what is that figure? 2 billion. Above inflation increase of

:10:52.:11:00.

3.3%, so you can imagine with 52% of the population how that will go

:11:01.:11:08.

down. Indeed. We still face a bell. 40-60,000,000,000. That is what

:11:09.:11:15.

Brussels are asking is for. They have left open the possibility we

:11:16.:11:19.

will continue to pay something into the EU to get some kind of access,

:11:20.:11:23.

so the idea that the minute Article 50s triggered we stop paying, that

:11:24.:11:30.

will not happen. Even when we're out of the EU we may still be paying

:11:31.:11:34.

and, her only demand that it will not be vast amounts. It says private

:11:35.:11:40.

army, is that what they are really talking about. In-house unit of 46

:11:41.:11:48.

bodyguards and security personnel. Hardly a private army. Sounds more

:11:49.:11:57.

like a security unit. An entourage. The EU army is such a red flag!

:11:58.:12:04.

Incredibly loaded. Onto the Daily Mail. Plague of the fly-tippers!

:12:05.:12:16.

Cases cost ?1 million a year. Dumping on an industrial scale. It

:12:17.:12:23.

is a very Daily Mail story. It is a scourge on the country and I don't

:12:24.:12:29.

think you will find anyone disagreeing. There is another issue

:12:30.:12:36.

where collections as well, every two weeks. Getting less and less than a

:12:37.:12:40.

lot of people complaining about councils that when you want to drop

:12:41.:12:43.

things off the not picking things up so people are falling back to this.

:12:44.:12:51.

Onto one of the other red tops, I suppose. The Daily Express, a new

:12:52.:12:56.

tax on inheritance, outrage at plans to help solve the social care

:12:57.:13:00.

crisis. The Daily Mail with its little investigation and pet peeve,

:13:01.:13:08.

the Daily Express with its own as well, this idea of a death tax.

:13:09.:13:13.

Knocking around for a couple of days, something Gordon Brown pitched

:13:14.:13:18.

in the 2010 election. How do we deal with the social care crisis? That

:13:19.:13:23.

when a loved one passes away you can use some of their property and pay

:13:24.:13:27.

back the social care they were getting before the Tories

:13:28.:13:31.

successfully done this a death tax and hammered at home on the doorstep

:13:32.:13:39.

and help them get over the line. Seven years later, the social care

:13:40.:13:43.

crisis still remains unsolved. One of the idea is supposedly being put

:13:44.:13:46.

to Theresa May is that possible you can do something in this bulk of

:13:47.:13:50.

cash, but ultimately it is left behind when somebody passes away.

:13:51.:13:54.

The idea is being put to Theresa May. I can't see the government... I

:13:55.:14:01.

would be amazed at the Treasury is suggesting it. Certainly not on the

:14:02.:14:08.

front of the Daily Express, the world's greatest newspaper! The

:14:09.:14:15.

Financial Times, with two little boys snap chatting. Good headline

:14:16.:14:20.

would have been snap, crackle and pop. Maybe not in the Financial

:14:21.:14:30.

Times, but its IPO today, 40% leaked, everybody rushed in, so the

:14:31.:14:37.

lady that looks after my children, in her early 20s, she sent me my

:14:38.:14:44.

first snap chat last year, and we went OK, what do you mean by this?

:14:45.:14:51.

She went, that is the message, it is the picture. We think in words and

:14:52.:14:56.

they are sending orgies and emotions and it is all about images, and the

:14:57.:15:01.

reason why everyone is piling into this is because we have seen 150

:15:02.:15:07.

million people around the world you snap chat every day. 10 million in

:15:08.:15:14.

the UK. Advertisers desperately want to get words in front of them. It is

:15:15.:15:20.

losing money hand over fist but the idea is that then the line it will

:15:21.:15:23.

make lots of money because young people are into it. It is losing

:15:24.:15:31.

money every day. On the first day of Twitter's IPO they jumped by 73% and

:15:32.:15:37.

they have fallen a lot more since then. Remember Bebo, that was the

:15:38.:15:46.

great thing before Facebook. MySpace. I like old punchy

:15:47.:15:54.

typewriters. Can't go wrong with that. And it doesn't disappear after

:15:55.:16:03.

ten seconds either. Good to see you. Thanks for that.

:16:04.:16:04.

Don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online

:16:05.:16:09.

The winter months were quite dry, the 1st of March is trying to turn

:16:10.:16:44.

that around and for Friday, rain spreading north to most areas as the

:16:45.:16:49.

day goes on, looking pretty unsettled,

:16:50.:16:51.
