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

:00:15.:00:17.

With me will be the former Labour Party adviser and comedian,

:00:18.:00:21.

Ayesha Hazarika and the Conservative commentator, Tim Montgomerie.

:00:22.:00:28.

The i says National Insurance rates could increase

:00:29.:00:31.

for self-employed people as the Chancellor Phillip Hammond

:00:32.:00:33.

seeks to raise up to three billion pounds to fund social care.

:00:34.:00:36.

The Financial Times leads with comments from Peugeot's chief

:00:37.:00:39.

executive, who said a 'hard Brexit' that incurs import tariffs could be

:00:40.:00:42.

a 'nice opportunity' for the company to develop their suppliers

:00:43.:00:45.

Scientists could be able to develop a single pill to help

:00:46.:00:50.

regulate blood pressure, The Express says, after their

:00:51.:00:55.

research showed a link between the brain and hypertension.

:00:56.:00:57.

Theresa May announces new grammar school plans in the Telegraph,

:00:58.:00:59.

that will help to end what she claims is the 'brutal

:01:00.:01:02.

and unacceptable' truth of selection by income.

:01:03.:01:07.

The Guardian has the same story. The paper says some free schools could

:01:08.:01:14.

opt to select pupils based on academic merit. The Daily Mail says

:01:15.:01:19.

there will also be funding to help some children from low income

:01:20.:01:23.

families to travel to selected schools. The row between President

:01:24.:01:26.

Trump and the former FBI director James Comey, who is still the FBI

:01:27.:01:31.

director, by the way, over wiretapping allegations, is the

:01:32.:01:32.

front page story in the Times. And front page story in the Times. And

:01:33.:01:38.

the daily Star reports that three televised jabbing slick football

:01:39.:01:41.

will soon disappear as beauty sports Centre 1.2 billion deal to screen

:01:42.:01:45.

all matches. Champions League football has disappeared from

:01:46.:01:55.

Manchester United. That was cruel. You will be back.

:01:56.:02:12.

The express, may warns Lord not to wreck EU deal. She turned up last

:02:13.:02:21.

week, was at last week for the week before? To make sure that

:02:22.:02:26.

understood. She sat there in the majestic glory, casting an eye over

:02:27.:02:31.

them. This looks like a pre-emptive strike against the Lords who might

:02:32.:02:36.

well give another defeat and they are trying to send a message saying

:02:37.:02:39.

do not mess with us because this could mess up the deal. I think that

:02:40.:02:44.

is a bit outlandish. The idea that giving more scrutiny, that

:02:45.:02:51.

parliamentarians would want to vote for a bad deal for the EU, I think

:02:52.:02:56.

that posturing is a bit much. Even people who are very strongly remain

:02:57.:03:01.

would not want to go against the best interests of the country and I

:03:02.:03:05.

think most people have accepted Brexit is happening. It is more

:03:06.:03:11.

complicated, because if there is a mechanism whereby the deal can be

:03:12.:03:16.

rejected, then Theresa May is saying that gives Europe and incentive not

:03:17.:03:20.

to give Britain a good deal because if they give Britain a bad thing it

:03:21.:03:24.

is more likely to be rejected and so they have the incentive to cooperate

:03:25.:03:30.

in the negotiations. That is why and the idea that the Liberal Democrats

:03:31.:03:36.

are proposing of a second referendum actually undermines, potentially

:03:37.:03:40.

fatally, the negotiating position. What happened on the article 50

:03:41.:03:44.

vote, how many people went against it? A very small number. The truth

:03:45.:03:50.

is, most parliamentarians, even though the might not personally be

:03:51.:03:53.

comfortable with it, they are democrats and that food should they

:03:54.:03:57.

would not go against it. Apart from the Democrats. -- Liberal Democrats.

:03:58.:04:06.

They are quite small. Nobody really knows how the negotiations are going

:04:07.:04:10.

to shake down and everybody is doing a lot of speculation, if we do this

:04:11.:04:14.

and that they were sent a bad signal and they will use that against us.

:04:15.:04:18.

The will use lots of things against us. That is the cut and thrust of

:04:19.:04:26.

negotiating. Let's move on. If you should achieve different kerchief

:04:27.:04:32.

pledges to deepen UK presence. Pearce is the French company. They

:04:33.:04:37.

have taken over. There is the fear that they might decide to cost cup

:04:38.:04:43.

and, as a result, some British jobs will go. The suggestion is a hard

:04:44.:04:47.

Brexit might make things more interesting. You should clearly and

:04:48.:04:52.

kicking quite a bit of public relations hearing. There is a big

:04:53.:04:59.

worry at the top of government about the car industry after Brexit. We

:05:00.:05:05.

have had Apple, Facebook, the technology firms, investing and that

:05:06.:05:13.

is an industry we can be confident has a good future whatever

:05:14.:05:23.

negotiations have transpired. The supply chain for the car industry is

:05:24.:05:27.

spread over several countries and people are worried it could disrupt

:05:28.:05:31.

the supply chain is a Brexit negotiations are doing well. Peugeot

:05:32.:05:34.

are saying they are committed to Britain. Because they are committed

:05:35.:05:41.

to Britain, they will invest in the component chain in our country. Even

:05:42.:05:47.

after a hard Brexit. Peugeot even if they played however, they could get

:05:48.:05:53.

if few sweeteners. Nissan did. That is what they are hoping for. People

:05:54.:05:58.

are optimistic, but that is concerned about what happen after

:05:59.:06:02.

2021 when they decide about where the new generation of cards will be

:06:03.:06:10.

manufactured. Also, I think what Tim said is right about the car

:06:11.:06:13.

manufacturing industry, because these companies like Facebook, the

:06:14.:06:21.

big trendy tech companies, they don't like they are comfortable

:06:22.:06:23.

here, but there is a political message the government will want to

:06:24.:06:28.

get out these blue-collar jobs, the manufacturing jobs they are saying

:06:29.:06:33.

we will try to be a country that build things again, it is perverted

:06:34.:06:38.

back control. It will a shiver across the country if it looks like

:06:39.:06:41.

some of these manufacturing jobs are at risk. They will do everything

:06:42.:06:45.

they can to show that is not the case. Our tax system, Labour laws,

:06:46.:06:52.

the skills of a lot of our workforce, in the released in

:06:53.:06:55.

particular, they have been making cars to a high standard for a long

:06:56.:06:59.

time and any fractures are comfortable with the expertise of

:07:00.:07:03.

the British Labour market. Uncertainty is happening because of

:07:04.:07:07.

Brexit but sometimes undersell ourselves as a nation and some of

:07:08.:07:12.

the qualities that we do have. You also have elections in Germany and

:07:13.:07:17.

France and you will have trade union leaders and others in industry in

:07:18.:07:20.

those countries lobbying prospective candidates to say Peugeot, do you

:07:21.:07:34.

know? The pressure will be there. Mr Trump, you cannot get through The

:07:35.:07:40.

Papers without talking about him. His new travel order bans citizens

:07:41.:07:46.

from six Muslim nations, Iraq has been taken off the list. The

:07:47.:07:51.

suggestion is, from the administration, that they will get

:07:52.:07:54.

this through the courts. It is difficult to see what has changed.

:07:55.:08:00.

They have taken Iraq of the list. Interestingly, Saudi Arabia is still

:08:01.:08:04.

not on the list and that is a huge generator of terrorism and they have

:08:05.:08:09.

said they will be more security for people who have visas and green

:08:10.:08:13.

cards and they will give people ten days to start preparing for it. I

:08:14.:08:20.

can see this being accepted without any pushback. I think they will face

:08:21.:08:25.

the same judicial resistance to gain and the same civil disobedience as

:08:26.:08:28.

well. I think this will be Muslim and Mark two. The problem is that he

:08:29.:08:35.

has is that he said on the campaign trail, barn and some have suggested

:08:36.:08:40.

Muslim Kim stood before the word ban were in the same sentence. Those two

:08:41.:08:47.

words were there. He simply cannot say I am going to make the vetting

:08:48.:08:51.

of Maastricht. You cannot simply say I will make it tougher for these

:08:52.:08:56.

people, he has to have the word ban in there. He has painted himself

:08:57.:09:01.

into a corner. He will insist, because he needs to get this through

:09:02.:09:08.

the courts, but it is not a Muslim band, radio Giuliani said to him

:09:09.:09:15.

that Donald Trump wants is a Muslim band so how does he make it legal?

:09:16.:09:18.

The courts are not stupid. They will note that evidence and they might

:09:19.:09:24.

well strike it down. There will also be an awareness, as much as some of

:09:25.:09:29.

us worry about what this means for relations between west and the

:09:30.:09:33.

Muslim world, this is a popular policy amongst the people who voted

:09:34.:09:38.

for Trump. This is exactly the kind of policy that they wanted when they

:09:39.:09:41.

put in the White House. Regardless of the fact that the flak he will

:09:42.:09:46.

get from governments around the world, he is committed to this.

:09:47.:09:53.

There is a suggestion that his popularity has come up amongst

:09:54.:09:56.

Republicans as a result of this. Could this be different this front

:09:57.:10:01.

page of The Times. Trump hits out FBI. Yes, the party faithful will

:10:02.:10:09.

love him bashing President Obama but said the president and the FBI acted

:10:10.:10:14.

illegally, that is a whole different kettle of fish, isn't it? I am more

:10:15.:10:20.

interested in how Barack Obama looks like he walked out of the net in

:10:21.:10:26.

70s. He looks like he is in a 70s cop show. It is amazing. That is

:10:27.:10:33.

what happens when you have to worry about is what shade of leather

:10:34.:10:37.

jacket you are going to wear, rather than what to do about Kim Jong Un. I

:10:38.:10:45.

was in America last year for the times and the number of times Trump

:10:46.:10:48.

said something controversial under the bus is it, you cannot accuse

:10:49.:10:53.

John McGinn of being a failure because he was a prisoner of war.

:10:54.:10:56.

When he mocked the disabled reporter. My mum would send me to

:10:57.:11:01.

bed without such a thing without key. Making up a claim that Obama

:11:02.:11:09.

wiretapped does seem like a step too far, but as President... He is

:11:10.:11:16.

saying that the FBI is lying and you have the head of the FBI, James

:11:17.:11:21.

Connolly, sent this did not happen. He is basically saying Trump made it

:11:22.:11:27.

up. I think the cost to Trump of this is that there will be a moment

:11:28.:11:32.

of national emergency when he will lead people to rally around him and

:11:33.:11:35.

trust in to make a difficult decision and people would give him

:11:36.:11:38.

the benefit of the doubt for I don't think it will hurt politically

:11:39.:11:42.

amongst his supporters because they accept that most politicians I

:11:43.:11:45.

exaggerate. They just think Trump does it in a more celebrity way.

:11:46.:11:50.

They give him the benefit of the doubt on the politics of it. I will

:11:51.:11:56.

never forget the Bush administration official in 2000 for telling a bunch

:11:57.:12:03.

of us journalists that the problem with the journalist is he exist in a

:12:04.:12:07.

fact -based universe. We make our own facts. I didn't really

:12:08.:12:13.

understand what they were saying. I do understand that now. This is the

:12:14.:12:19.

incarnate of all of this. Come on, this is the president now. He has

:12:20.:12:26.

not changed from the street fighter on the campaign trail to the fact

:12:27.:12:31.

that he is now president of the United States and that is something

:12:32.:12:34.

that his fans will like. One gets the impression he is doubling down

:12:35.:12:41.

on shooting from the hip, sent by the likes. He has advisers who go

:12:42.:12:46.

out and say we are briefing, not wrong facts, alternative facts. That

:12:47.:12:50.

is the world we live in. With Hillary Clinton, the through and

:12:51.:12:54.

through mud at the fact she was a terrific criminal, you are going to

:12:55.:13:01.

jail and it stuck. I think, as much as we think the Obama thing is

:13:02.:13:06.

crazy, I think they will double down on this as a strategy and they will

:13:07.:13:10.

want to tarnish his name. They will have two because he said Obama

:13:11.:13:18.

bugged my place. The budget tax rise. Only a couple of days before

:13:19.:13:25.

the red box is opened. The big story in the budget is going to be social

:13:26.:13:33.

care and how we try to blog plug the gap. It looks like Hammond is

:13:34.:13:38.

planning a tax rise on the self-employed and it looks like it

:13:39.:13:41.

will be difficult for him to push politically. I have already seen

:13:42.:13:46.

stuff in the sun about how he is targeting the white van man, the

:13:47.:13:51.

honest person with the small business, why is he not gone after

:13:52.:13:55.

the fat cats? He will have to be careful because it could be a bit,

:13:56.:13:59.

remember the past the tax? It went badly wrong. I think this could give

:14:00.:14:05.

them problems. We are running out of time. Onto the Telegraph. Don of

:14:06.:14:10.

grammar schools, paperback. We were talking about this before. I thought

:14:11.:14:17.

Theresa May had concluded on this. It was a big part of her early term

:14:18.:14:22.

as Prime Minister and it wasn't received especially well by a lot of

:14:23.:14:25.

Conservative MPs and there were worries about whether she could get

:14:26.:14:29.

it through Parliament and that she was backpedalling, but the

:14:30.:14:33.

suggestion in The Papers is not at all, some serious money will be put

:14:34.:14:37.

into free schools from independent schools that parents and others can

:14:38.:14:40.

set up, but these would be allowed to become selective and therefore

:14:41.:14:46.

grammar schools. She is gone ahead. Also in the Telegraph, Hague urges

:14:47.:14:54.

early election. This is fascinating. We have been speculative about

:14:55.:14:59.

whether this would happen. There is an irresistible urge for Theresa May

:15:00.:15:01.

to call an early election, especially because Her Majesty's

:15:02.:15:08.

opposition is having a slight moment. It is opposing its self at

:15:09.:15:09.

the moment. Hague is urging this, but I think

:15:10.:15:26.

Theresa May is a woman famed for her caution and I think she will not

:15:27.:15:30.

want to get trapped in the Gordon Brown thing where you get hair is

:15:31.:15:35.

running about an early election and it kills you. I would personally

:15:36.:15:38.

have an early election because wipe-out when you have Jeremy Corbyn

:15:39.:15:42.

as Leader of the Opposition? The difference is if the Lords or

:15:43.:15:48.

someone like something that matters, if she has a pretext, she will go

:15:49.:15:52.

for it, but she doesn't want is to have left the door open to it and

:15:53.:16:01.

people are just speculating about when it will be. Once the

:16:02.:16:03.

speculative starts it is uncontrollable. Finally, the daily

:16:04.:16:11.

Star, 1.2 billion pound snatch of the day. BT paid ?1.2 billion the

:16:12.:16:17.

screen the Champions League games. Terrestrial TV viewers cannot get

:16:18.:16:34.

it. It is a shame. What beauty are doing is they are copying sky. This

:16:35.:16:41.

guy, nobody knew how they would work but the exhibited. It was live

:16:42.:16:48.

football on Skype that made the satellite channel survive. BT, they

:16:49.:16:53.

are fighting for their survival as well and they are using the

:16:54.:16:57.

Champions League is this vision. I don't care. I only care that BT was

:16:58.:17:02.

investing in interesting content and it has pulled all of that to buy

:17:03.:17:11.

football. OK. Good to have you in. Thank you for joining us. You can

:17:12.:17:17.

see all the front pages on line on the BBC News website. It is

:17:18.:17:20.

therefore you seven days a week.

:17:21.:17:31.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
