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


With me are Martin Bentham, Home Affairs Editor


at The Evening Standard, the broadcaster Lynn Faulds-Wood.


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


The Daily Telegraph said a Scottish referendum may be put off six years.


The Guardian leads a Nicola Sturgeon's assessment that the Prime


Minister's stance may have sealed the fate of the union. Metro has the


same story. "Brexit comes before Scotland"


is how the i sums up Theresa May's response to the calls


from Scottish nationalists. Claims that taking statins increases


the risk of diabetes dominate Let's start with a story dominating


quite a few of those front pages. And that is Scotland. We have


triggered Brexit which is what the Prime Minister announced and then


immediately off the blocks comes the little box that is Nicola Sturgeon.


I know her and an incredibly brilliant politician, but I think on


this one, if you don't mind me saying so, Nicola, you've just gone


a bit over the top, because she is provoking Theresa May she is


provoking her back and now the Prime Minister is Saint we have to wait


six years if Scotland wants a referendum. That seems an


extraordinarily long time. I she said it would have to wait until


after Brexit. Why six years? The big problem is that the Scottish will


not stand for it. If you want a war, that is it. She hasn't quite said


six years, this is an extrapolation. She said it is not before the Brexit


vote or not before this and then is to be time for Scotland's assess the


Brexit deal. It is suggesting here it would need a new mandate in the


2021 election and therefore would stretch on for another 18 months.


That's all conjecture. What is happening is there will not be an


instant referendum, because the Prime Minister doesn't want to


interfere with the Brexit negotiations. Sturgeon has said


light have one as early as next year. Yes, but she knows that's


impossible for the Prime Minister to agree to. Well, she will not want to


come aboard a Scotland in the meantime? They don't have a vote in


the Scottish Parliament next week. How can they keep two warring


factions, because that's what will happen, how can you keep them apart?


My front are very excited about what is happening now. Scotland could


easily swing behind Nicola Sturgeon. Because last time, in the last


referendum, and the Scots voted to stay in because they were promised


that way we would stay in Europe and get all this lovely Carbon capture


and billions for wind farms and then it disappeared afterwards. They felt


betrayed. So no wonder Nicola Sturgeon is fighting for it. They


didn't although because they wanted to remain in Europe are the last


referendum. But now they don't trust what is coming up. If they want to


leave, it is up to them ultimately, but it can't actually happen when...


If it does wait six years, they could potentially then vote them,


and that's up to the Scottish people to decide. Be not to jeopardise the


Brexit negotiations, that is the principal point. The Guardian has


picked up on this same story. Sturgeon may have sealed the fate of


the UK. A slightly different take. That is Nicola Sturgeon's argument,


that by rejecting what she sees as a legitimate demand for a referendum


more or less immediately, therefore, that will do what you say can


galvanise support for independence. That might happen. It is a risk for


Theresa May, but she was not a position where she could do anything


else because Brexit. Every single Council in Scotland, I think I've


read, voted to Remained, because they want to stay closer to Europe


and if they're going to have any chance of that, they want to get out


of the United Kingdom. I think is the most... It is like some kind of


nightmare I've landed on. Who would have bought five years ago we would


be in this mess? The Prime Minister of the employed to gather to the


Brexit, Scotland will come out of EU anyway. But they will. Most of them


want to stay in though. Because they like to blame others for all their


ills, don't they? Roger-Yves Bost no! No! The Metro again picking up


on this real row going on between a Nicola Sturgeon and Theresa May, two


very strong women. Scots fury as they blocks referendum. Both sides


seem to be rushing up the rhetoric? Particularly from Sturgeon's


viewpoint, I understand why she's doing it. It plays the advantage to


do it. Whether in the longer and if push comes to shove she actually


think persuade people of the economic risks and someone and the


real prospect of what will be like being part of a small country in the


European Union as opposed to... Small countries do very well. Look


at Slovenia. But as you are saying, this is a classic... It is what is


called a face that sandbox. In the Glasgow edition should be smiling.


-- she will be smiling. Letters have a look at some other stories in the


papers in the morning. Martin, The Times. They be running some


investigations and what they been pointing out is that when adverts


placed by all sorts of businesses, including the Cabinet Office which


is pulled many adverts from the Internet because Google and other


Internet providers are placing their adverts alongside extremist content,


which is allowing extremists, reverent or racists, to raise money


off the back of advertising. When I was doing a independent


review for the Government, which they still haven't done anything


with, when I look to the recall website across Europe, you would


find there were loads of them and they had got all sorts of Thai


massage parlour adverts and sorts of ads and I'm glad that Google is


being hauled in and Twitter as well and being as what they are doing.


Yes, placed alongside other unsavoury content of an advert is


viewed, it generates revenue for the person putting up the unsavoury


content. Another example of how difficult it is to police the


Internet. Another interesting story, going back to the cover-macro


Telegraph fear about the role of GCHQ in this spying on the other


side of the Atlantic. Trump my like to come up with some evidence for


saying that Obama spied on him and they seem to think that GCHQ are


spies and somehow or other they held a bomb to spy on Trump in the


Telegraph. It is claimed they got intelligence agencies to spy on him


and that has been roundly rubbished by his owner agencies so easy now as


the final of justifying this, so the new argument is is that we were


doing at our behalf of the Americans, because you can't find


our fingerprints on it in America. We have actually had a statement


from a GCHQ tonight saying that recent allegations by media


commentator judge Andrew Napolitano about GCHQ being asked to conduct a


wiretapping against the then President-elect Art nonsense. They


are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored. An extremely strong


statesman. Whenever Trump seems to get in trouble, he comes up with


some angle for getting him out of there by distracting you. And this


sounds like a classic distraction. OK, so Trump was not there, Obama


wasn't doing it, but perhaps the British were doing it for him. And


there was a reference to the original allegation which was


repeated by Trump's press secretary. Letters touch on a couple of other


slightly lighter stories in the papers in the morning. The Bake Off.


The new line-up. , Well, we've got a fascinating... Sandy toxic and Noel


Fielding. You normally see the latter on satirical shows.


I don't know whether either of them can cook. It could be quite


entertaining. This new line-up, do you think you


will be a success, Martin? It'll be hard to recapture the success of the


original, who knows? Channel 4 doesn't begin to get the audience


that the BBC do, so they won't get 40 million or whatever the BBC was


getting. -- 14 million. Won just time to look at a terrific picture


on the front page of the Times. It's a pitch of the Downing Street cat,


Larry. Apparently, the mouse ran away and escapes and therefore the


cat is obviously not very good. One of the photographers there in


Downing Street of those the big battle between Theresa May Nicola


Sturgeon, but of course, Larry the cat has stolen the limelight for a


moment. Sometimes give his incriminating documents they


shouldn't be displayed, but this is a beautiful photo. At the next time


you're standing at Downing Street, you need to look for this mouse.


Thank you both. Don't forget you can see the front
