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

:00:18.:00:21.

With me Joseph Harker, Deputy Opinion Editor

:00:22.:00:23.

at The Guardian and Melanie Eusebe, Executive Producer of the Women

:00:24.:00:26.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:27.:00:46.

The Mail says grieving families may have to take out costly loans to pay

:00:47.:00:49.

for new probate fees - dubbed the death tax -

:00:50.:00:52.

The I reports that Theresa May will trigger Brexit as soon as Tuesday,

:00:53.:00:56.

as EU chiefs warn of 'torturous' negotiations for months ahead.

:00:57.:00:58.

The FT also reports on Brexit, with a claim from one source

:00:59.:01:01.

saying if not Tuesday, Article 50 would be triggered

:01:02.:01:03.

The Telegraph also reports on Brexit.

:01:04.:01:06.

It also reports on its own poll claiming the Conservative Party

:01:07.:01:09.

is no longer seen as a party of low taxation, following Philip Hammond's

:01:10.:01:12.

National Insurance rise for self-employed workers

:01:13.:01:13.

New Migrant Crisis On Way, says the Express, which claims

:01:14.:01:17.

a surge of people travelling to Europe has sparked fears

:01:18.:01:20.

of another summer of chaos at Britain's borders.

:01:21.:01:22.

The Times reports on grammar schools - saying they'll be forced to offer

:01:23.:01:25.

lower 11-plus pass marks to children from poorer backgrounds,

:01:26.:01:27.

or embrace similar moves, to end what it calls

:01:28.:01:29.

And the Mirror has an interview with Paul Burrell, the former butler

:01:30.:01:39.

of Diana, Princess of Wales, who he claims

:01:40.:01:41.

We shall start with the I. Brexit may be triggered by Tuesday.

:01:42.:02:08.

Surprisingly. That means technically we could be off on Tuesday. That is

:02:09.:02:16.

a surprise, not in terms of our own action, but in response to the

:02:17.:02:22.

European Council. They are saying we could clear an our side in 48 hours.

:02:23.:02:26.

So by the end of the week, it could be in full effect. Then they'll say

:02:27.:02:32.

you can come back at any point in the future, just to muddy the

:02:33.:02:40.

waters. This is uprising. The Lords let to go through and then they sent

:02:41.:02:46.

it back. And now it is back with the Commons and you would think if they

:02:47.:02:51.

were going to send it back, some MPs who were wavering may start to

:02:52.:02:55.

think, well, maybe there's a reason for us to rethink it. Especially on

:02:56.:02:58.

the issue whether or not migrants in the UK should have the right to

:02:59.:03:04.

remain in this country. But at least we have been told all briefed that

:03:05.:03:08.

there is unlikely to be a Tory rebellion which means when it goes

:03:09.:03:11.

back to the Commons, they will not get through. -- they will let it

:03:12.:03:20.

through. And this is on the expectation that they will let it

:03:21.:03:23.

through, even though last week there was a majority of hunger for sending

:03:24.:03:30.

it back. It could be but who knows. We have the express on page five

:03:31.:03:35.

saying that Eurocrats are hinting at a new deal in a sneaky bid to derail

:03:36.:03:41.

Brexit. This has been doing the rounds for ages, this idea of an

:03:42.:03:47.

associate EU membership for those who did and wants to leave. Britain

:03:48.:03:51.

has said it will not be the single market or the customs union. And now

:03:52.:03:58.

they are saying there's another way in which they could a connection.

:03:59.:04:04.

But it will be a membership of the EU, rather, some arrangement. A

:04:05.:04:09.

wooden derail everything, just an idea put forward some time ago by a

:04:10.:04:15.

former Belgian Prime Minister? Well, there are some people say let's make

:04:16.:04:21.

the break, but now all of a sudden we are hearing, well, we've received

:04:22.:04:25.

thousands of applications and so if you want to stay, personally, in the

:04:26.:04:31.

EU, then you can apply to do so. And then also saying oh, maybe we ought

:04:32.:04:36.

to have a special relationship. You applied to leave the boat, but you

:04:37.:04:42.

may be able to get back on it. So frankly, in combination with the

:04:43.:04:45.

possibility may be triggered this week and also associate membership,

:04:46.:04:48.

we are still just as confused. We are. Now the Telegraph. Tories are

:04:49.:04:55.

they no longer -- no longer the low tax party. Philip Hammond announced

:04:56.:05:04.

there would be an increase in some classes of National Insurance

:05:05.:05:06.

contributions for self-employed people. They always prided

:05:07.:05:10.

themselves on being a party of low tax. Yes, I always like to keep

:05:11.:05:16.

these things in context. You'll find this a thousand people voted in it,

:05:17.:05:22.

so one in seven of them are already conservative. We should look at

:05:23.:05:26.

that, because it may not be a reflection of what the general

:05:27.:05:34.

populace is thinking. They say you only need to poll a thousand people

:05:35.:05:38.

and we know the proud record companies. I think even bigger

:05:39.:05:44.

samples than that. The subheading says almost half of the public say

:05:45.:05:47.

they are less likely to vote Conservative and in the Express you

:05:48.:05:51.

got them sent our 19 points ahead of Labour, so who do you believe? It is

:05:52.:05:57.

and editing tonight, says she always packs the running order with the

:05:58.:06:04.

huge number of... I was just going to say that hidden in a Telegraph

:06:05.:06:09.

story was an interesting point. It said Philip Hammond must first

:06:10.:06:11.

survive a plot to oust him which have been brewing amongst Brexit

:06:12.:06:19.

types. So seizing on this unpopularity of his Budget and

:06:20.:06:22.

trying to get rid of the chancel altogether. Of course, it is a

:06:23.:06:28.

remainder. He barely mentioned Brexit in the Budget. He's the one

:06:29.:06:35.

person who seems to be trying to stay true to his belief it is better

:06:36.:06:40.

for Britain to stay in Europe while working for a Prime Minister who

:06:41.:06:43.

says Brexit means Brexit. Can we move on now? The Times. Established

:06:44.:06:52.

grammar schools most of the lower pass marks to poorer pupils. This is

:06:53.:06:57.

an established grammar schools. She wants to create new ones. Utah to

:06:58.:07:03.

detoxify grammar schools in order to convince Tory backbenchers that

:07:04.:07:09.

expanding them is good idea. The big myth is that grammar schools help

:07:10.:07:16.

social mobility. They did once, didn't they? There was a time when

:07:17.:07:21.

ordinary working-class kids could get a grammar school and move on and

:07:22.:07:30.

break away from their background and take advantage of greater

:07:31.:07:36.

opportunities. But since then, middle-class families have been

:07:37.:07:38.

getting their kids tutored and this is a free alternative to private

:07:39.:07:45.

schools. Hence grammar schools now have 3% of kids on free school

:07:46.:07:50.

dinners. This is an attempt to detoxify in a way undermining what

:07:51.:07:53.

grammar schools are meant to be about, which is by lowering the

:07:54.:07:58.

marks for poorer kids. From the North American perspective, is this

:07:59.:08:03.

baffling to you, Melanie? Yes, and it feels like that argument about

:08:04.:08:09.

affirmative action and letters she was at women to put in our

:08:10.:08:13.

boardrooms. I always say, I don't want to get a bigger you have

:08:14.:08:17.

lowered the grade or the admission criteria or changed it, it is more

:08:18.:08:22.

that you are focusing on getting me in in different ways. It does leave

:08:23.:08:28.

a bad taste. It doesn't resolve anything and it's still a deeply

:08:29.:08:32.

divided issue. Kids can be quite cruel. You don't want a situation

:08:33.:08:42.

where the poorer kids are all perceived to have got in because

:08:43.:08:47.

their marks have been lowered. So a secondary school with kids saying,

:08:48.:08:53.

they'll be less clever ones. Picture of Jack Munro on the Guardian who

:08:54.:09:05.

sued Katie Hopkins for suggesting she had vandalised or approved of an

:09:06.:09:10.

act of vandalism of a war memorial. Difficult to win libel cases, but

:09:11.:09:15.

she has. Yes, and I love it, because this picture... Everybody who told

:09:16.:09:24.

me I couldn't, wouldn't, shouldn't, I could, and I did. It is a victory

:09:25.:09:34.

for us all. For? It signals the attention we should pay to our

:09:35.:09:37.

brand. I would be very hurt and upset if someone thought I was going

:09:38.:09:41.

around and defacing British memorials. The residue is still

:09:42.:09:47.

there, when you Google it it will come up. So I'm glad she went for it

:09:48.:09:52.

and forget the fact that Katie Hopkins is very controversial, just

:09:53.:10:00.

protect your brand. Because the residue stays. It shows you social

:10:01.:10:06.

media is not a free for all. And she did imply she had defaced a war

:10:07.:10:10.

memorial and when Jack Munro said to her, well, can you apologise and she

:10:11.:10:15.

would have accepted an apology, Katie Hopkins refused to do that and

:10:16.:10:22.

she dug herself deeper in by calling Jack Monroe social anthrax. So it

:10:23.:10:27.

got worse and worse and now she is faced with a bill of over ?100,000

:10:28.:10:31.

and maybe she can I reflect on that she plays it back. We do not lie

:10:32.:10:37.

about on our timelines, do we? Just be nice everybody. Ticket touts and

:10:38.:10:45.

unlimited fines. Some companies bulk buy and use software to bulk buy

:10:46.:10:48.

concert tickets and sell them are vastly inflated profits. Well,

:10:49.:10:58.

hopefully this is one measure recommended by Professor Waterstone.

:10:59.:11:01.

He published a number of proposals to prevent touting, because, quite

:11:02.:11:04.

frankly, business has come again and still these tickets at a fairly

:11:05.:11:08.

reasonable rate. That is to be debated. Ticket touts and the kind

:11:09.:11:15.

of technology and the sheer power in personnel, they buy the tickets very

:11:16.:11:21.

quickly and the reseller could be up to 400%, so that's why we are seeing

:11:22.:11:27.

artists like Adele selling out in minutes and they are appearing for

:11:28.:11:36.

thousands of pounds. The artist is on getting it, the venue is on

:11:37.:11:40.

getting it, so who is getting it? Someone's getting very rich. And

:11:41.:11:45.

it's not in the supply chain of the creation of the music. Joseph, talk

:11:46.:11:54.

to us about broadband. BT forced a broadband firm and they can't be in

:11:55.:11:59.

charge of open reach anymore in the way have been. There's an

:12:00.:12:05.

interesting table they've got tea, the percentage of homes at

:12:06.:12:13.

fibre-optic connections. 85% in Singapore, Macedonia, 8.7%, the UK,

:12:14.:12:20.

2%! That is shocking. If it is accurate, it is quite horrific. The

:12:21.:12:26.

idea is if BT are not in charge of open reach, there will be more

:12:27.:12:29.

competition and it would be better for rivals if they are not having to

:12:30.:12:32.

compete with BT up, up until now, have opened them. And they all rely

:12:33.:12:40.

to a certain extent on open reach and BT has been prioritising their

:12:41.:12:45.

own clients ahead of virgin, head of sky, and there's all these problems

:12:46.:12:51.

coming out of the ownership of BT open reach. They also say that BT

:12:52.:12:57.

are spending millions on Champions League football riots and this week

:12:58.:13:00.

they spent even more while this service it should be offering to

:13:01.:13:03.

people across the country is falling into decay. Especially in the

:13:04.:13:10.

countryside where people wants to run businesses and are finding it

:13:11.:13:14.

difficult. We were going to talk about robots with artificial

:13:15.:13:18.

irreverence. These robots work out how to tell a bad joke. The jokes

:13:19.:13:29.

are very good. I couldn't even decipher one. I would need help with

:13:30.:13:36.

that. But is it for tonight. -- that is its for tonight.

:13:37.:13:42.

If you miss the programme on any evening, you can watch it later on

:13:43.:13:57.

iPlayer. Goodbye. The weather is coming up.
