darkness of fairy tales, the power of the imagination, and her latest


novel, The Doll Funeral. Hello and welcome to our look ahead


to what the the papers will be With me are Caroline Frost,


Entertainment Editor of the Huffington Post


and parliamentary Journalist all reporter? Journalist,


I prefer that to full. -- I prefer that too.


Tomorrow's front pages, starting with


the Metro leads with the Home Secretary putting


pressure on internet companies over access to encrypted messages


in the wake of the Westminster attack.


The Telegraph also covering that story and says


Amber Rudd is furious that the attacker's whatsapp


One of the main stories in the FT is the police


clamp-down on anti-corruption protests in Russia.


The Independent reports that there is a security


flaw in the laptop ban in hand luggage, suggesting there are no


The Express says that millions of families are facing


major council tax increases from next month.


Let's begin with encryption, we all understand it... All perfectly


plain... (!) Internet giant hired terrorist's final note, Home


Secretary furious, Whats App message kept secret, I'm not entirely sure


that that is a helpful or accurate headline? They have either


misunderstood the situation or they have beefed it up a bit for the


headline. Whats App is... End to end conscription! I believe that means


the message is encrypted from one phone to another, what's up itself


does not have access. A line in the story, Whats App says even its own


technicians cannot really read peoples messages. They are hiding


anything, it is just that they are unavailable to anybody. The Home


Secretary's frustration is that technology has moved on, 15 years


ago you could tap a phone, have mobile phone access, you would need


a court order or the approval of the Home Secretary to do that


investigation, with the new apps, no way for the security services to


access them, but we have come up against is American companies with


American values, then things like first Amendment freedom of speech.


Whats App says, it is protecting users private union occasion, one of


its core beliefs. To my mind, protecting the people of the United


Kingdom from being killed in terror attacks needs to be a core belief,


but if the UK Government turns around and says to Whats App, design


and app compliant with the law the farce or we will shut you down, and


Whats App does acquiesce, and allows a less secure version of Whats App


to be created because of legal situation, what is to stop


repressive regimes across the world making similar demands from US


companies? You can provide a back door in. People and bad people would


be able to access it, there is the tension. -- good people and bad


people, the tension between privacy, freedom of speech, wanting the


intelligence services to keep them safe. Always held this idea of


privacy being an absolute right, but you would need something pretty


substantial to trump it. There was outcry in the States after 911 when


George Bush was seen as being opportunist, and seeing the great


tragedy as a time of taking away people's privacy and getting into


laptops. You have to decide, which is more important, at the moment, in


the aftermath of the tragedy of last week, everybody probably leaning


towards security, I really don't mind if people want to look at my


stuff if it means that we are all safe, what kind of person, if you


have nothing to hide, nothing to fear. Great mantras around us. But


it has to be seen in the wake of a crime being committed, that gives


people rights to be a bit more disruptive. Whats App, part of the


fact they have invented a system which cannot be hacked or interfered


with or read from the outside, but you have to question, do you need


that high level of encryption when all you are doing is sending


photographs to friends? Seriously! LAUGHTER


We did not have that level of privacy. We are being given it,


doesn't seem to me necessary that it has to be that high-tech or secure.


These are matters that are really difficult for the government. They


are on a stronger pitch when they turn around to Google and say, you


are printing extremist ideology and information, you are a publisher,


not a tech company. There is greater scope to legislate in that area, to


force them to remove stuff. I think there is a hunger for privacy, not a


justifiable need, but there is a hunger in the market, as a way of


differentiating yourself from other platforms that are hanging it all


out like washing. Especially the youth of today. I have Whats App, I


am not useful... Not tonight. Am I? Thank you! LAUGHTER


Britain to remain subject to EU regulation even after "Brexit", here


we have the great repeal Bill, submission be called the great


retention bill, by which we will take all of the EU regulations into


UK law, I will use that as a catchall term, until we can decide


which bits we want to keep, and do away with. It does then mean that we


will be subject to those institutions and oversight that a


lot of people want to get rid of, 52%, apparently. This was a great


setup, last June, when the "Brexit" vote was made clear, my goodness,


the next day, the great cartoons were the fact we would need all of


this European expertise to swing "Brexit" into life. As we always


know, satire is nine months ahead of truth, here we are. Up to 34 EU


regular Tory agencies up to a staggering 19,000... You can see why


they would not necessarily want this... 19,000 regulations. What


other way round it is there? You have got to have oversight, we do


not have other supranational bodies to do it. European agencies regulate


various things, like energy, communication, transport. Now, the


UK is either going to have to create its own regulatory agencies, in the


next 18 months to two years, before we leave, or, more likely, more


obvious, more convenient, UK will remain under the jurisdiction of


some of those agencies, probably for two years, five years... So the UK


can then decide what is own regulatory regime is going to be. I


suspect that will be part of the deal that Theresa May is going to do


when she figures Article 50. So complicated. When we say we are


leaving the EU, there are things we have to keep in mind, which we do


not have the capability to do these things by ourselves at this stage


and cooperation with European partners and continuing to come


under some of those EU agencies for a period of time is going to be


necessary to stop we are going, we are going, definitely(!) if an


opposing critical person who is still pro-remain, even after


triggered, if they were to step forward as an independent one policy


party, and there was a general election, and they won,


hypothetically, would that trigger... ? Hypothetical or not, we


are in a situation... If the government changes, if the


government changes, UK Government changes its mind, there is another


myth that Article 50 is irreversible but if the UK turned around and


said, we would like to stay, I very much doubt that the EU would argue


it but that is hypothetical and if I'm being honest, I don't think it


will happen. Nick Clegg, George Osborne, some amazing new single


issue party... And don't... Don't forget Tony Blair! Yes, indeed.


Major flaw in airport laptop and full. Simon Calvert, this is an


exclusive, we often have him on the news channel. Electronic devices


banned on certain flights from certain places, what is the floor?


For some reason, this story, he has rattled this through at great speed


to get it through on the front page, there is a little bit blurred in


terms of attacking what the floor is, it seems to be that the ones


going through Ataturk airport in Istanbul, are having problems with


the new people coming in from land side, somehow missing the security


checks everyone is going through. At some point, people turning up with


laptops and iPad, they are being told it has to go in the hold but at


some point, the chain is broken down. Not a comprehensive system of


checks. People have been through security checks, then they are


commingling with people who have not had them, so they could possibly and


then something and get on a plane. This policy has been confused since


it started, inconsistencies left and right. Russia takes to the streets,


huge demonstration, not just in Moscow but other cities across


Russia, hundreds and hundreds of people arrested, including the main


opposition leader. Alexi Navona. This links to what we would talking


about earlier, this is one way these demonstrators and activists are


communicating with each other, in the knowledge that the Russian


security services will not be able to hack into their messages or read


them. -- Alexei Navalny. Anyone that takes a stand is on the streets


against Vladimir Putin in Russia in the current climate is brave and


deserving of our support. A part of me thought, if we interfere in our


-- if they interfere in our elections, then we should interfere


in their areas. Marine Le Pen, the French election. This is the


suggestion that Dmitry Medvedev, the Prime Minister, is living well


beyond his means, all sorts of assets that he could not afford. I


don't think he is the only Russian person in a position of authority to


be accused of that. Very brave people, this seems to be moving


towards something, whether it is the beginning of something, whether it


will be suppressed... Sparks protest, now to have these great


numbers, whether they will prove to be some kind of uprising, the Arab


Spring, the red spring, it will all depend upon how Vladimir Putin


reacts, knowing that the rest of the world is watching including his


great observer, Donald Trump. Daily Express, millions face big council


tax rise, 90% of local authorities in charges height, even the chance


to increase council tax is, which has been flat for many years.


Capped. -- Council taxes. Social problem. When I see these things I


think, we were saying earlier, if it is a council tax, in theory, it


makes the money more accountable, look around your own local borough


and parish and see if bus stops are lit at night, is litter being picked


up? Duty of care to your own neighbourhood, I think this is a


good thing but it does mean one less thing for the government, palmed


off... Ready palmed off the licence fee. Other channels are available(!)


and taxes on businesses. Looks like you have devolved power to local


authorities but with it comes a big responsibility. Also comes six years


of slashing central government, the amount of money the central


government pays to councils, they have been hit by both sides, they


could not raise taxation, the government does not want council tax


going up by 10%, and the government is cutting back money, councils are


in crisis. Things that are really important, key services, it can't


just always be about elderly care. The focus is there because that is


where the headlines are. Domestic violence. They are left with just


that she too is stuff that they have two fun. Shall we finish on


something rather different, the Metro. Duty calls. TV's most


compelling cop show is back with a 5-star review. Three of the main


characters. I was a bit late to this, which series is this? Four. I


picked it up at series three, did not matter, this is a fantastic


show. Recognised us by moving tonight, for the first time, to BBC


One, expectations high, it has gone from being a midweek BBC Two stuff


to the Blu-ray band slot of 9pm Sunday evening viewing, but I think


it has been built and they will come, it is by far, I am saying it,


the finest television crime drama that we have in this country. --


blue riband. I have seen this episode of which we speak. No


spoilers. Who is this actress? She is the woman of the moment, she was


in the replacement. A friend of mine thinks I look like her. They have


enough of the familiar, Adrian Dunbar, Vicky McClure, who are


excellent, every time, and then they have a guest antagonist, in this


time, it is ten D Newton, a list glamour, every single time, they


have provided the spark. -- Thandie Newton. I am a really big fan of it.


It is some of the most tense television I have ever seen, I was


watching it downstairs, as I came in, plugged my headphones in! That


is the papers for this hour, they will be back at 11:30pm, for another


look at the front pages. Coming up next, Meet the Author.
