complexion to the weather. Sunshine for Cardiff and London. More on the

:00:00.:00:00.

website. We'll be taking a look at tomorrow

:00:00.:00:51.

morning's papers in a moment. Britain says that Gibraltar cannot

:00:52.:00:56.

be used as a bargaining chip Spain insists it will have a direct

:00:57.:01:16.

say on the territory once it leaves the EU.

:01:17.:01:19.

TRANSLATION: On Gibraltar, no agreement between the European Union

:01:20.:01:22.

and the UK will apply without the consent of Spain.

:01:23.:01:24.

A hate crime investigation is launched after a teenage asylum

:01:25.:01:26.

seeker was attacked by a gang of youths at a bus stop

:01:27.:01:29.

in south London and left in a critical condition.

:01:30.:01:36.

We believe it is a hate crime. Prior to the attack taking place, the

:01:37.:01:43.

young person was asked where they were from an when they said they

:01:44.:01:48.

were an asylum seeker, that is when the frenzied attack took place.

:01:49.:01:52.

At least 100 people are reported to have been killed

:01:53.:01:54.

by a massive mudslide in southern Colombia.

:01:55.:01:56.

The mud engulfed homes and roads, hundreds of families are missing.

:01:57.:02:08.

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

:02:09.:02:12.

With me are Anne Ashworth, associate editor

:02:13.:02:14.

at the Times and Bonnie Greer, playwright and writer

:02:15.:02:17.

The Mail on Sunday continues its campaign against videos

:02:18.:02:25.

on Google and YouTube which show violent or terror related content.

:02:26.:02:29.

Tomorrow's story highlights a video showing how

:02:30.:02:31.

Britain's airports and nuclear power stations need to tighten

:02:32.:02:35.

their defences against terrorist attacks in the face of increased

:02:36.:02:40.

threats to electronic security systems, that's according to a story

:02:41.:02:43.

on the Sunday Telegraph's front page.

:02:44.:02:45.

British passports could soon be changing colour to dark blue,

:02:46.:02:47.

as part of a ?500 million post-Brexit redesign,

:02:48.:02:49.

that story on the front page of the Sunday Express.

:02:50.:02:51.

The Sunday Times has a story about how

:02:52.:02:54.

tens of thousands pounds a year in expenses for attending the House

:02:55.:02:58.

of Lords while making little or no contribution

:02:59.:03:00.

And the Observer reports pressures being put on the Government

:03:01.:03:04.

by some cross-party MPs who want to guarantee that EU

:03:05.:03:06.

nationals would still be able to work in the NHS after Brexit.

:03:07.:03:09.

The Sunday Telegraph, couple of stories here. Boris says Gibraltar

:03:10.:03:23.

is not for sale, saying Britain's supporters packable and rock like,

:03:24.:03:29.

which is pretty good, isn't it? The point is this has taken people buy

:03:30.:03:37.

supplies -- surprise. It was a surprise element, but the Spanish

:03:38.:03:40.

would have detail over the future of Gibraltar. It seems to have caused

:03:41.:03:48.

extraordinary surprise today. This should have been something I would

:03:49.:03:53.

have been known. Every time that Spain has an opportunity to make a

:03:54.:03:56.

territorial claim about Gibraltar, it takes it. The ministers weren't

:03:57.:04:02.

prepared for this, that is the shocking part. For Spain, it is

:04:03.:04:10.

national pride. Absolutely. The issue is whether we are prepared for

:04:11.:04:14.

everything that is going to come and because this is about their

:04:15.:04:20.

territory as well, and the fact that Gibraltar was almost unanimous

:04:21.:04:22.

voting to remain, and whether it is as legitimate argument or not, the

:04:23.:04:30.

surprise is what is worrying. But so many Gibraltarians want to remain

:04:31.:04:32.

part of Britain, and always have. They always have but they also want

:04:33.:04:38.

to remain in the EU. I wonder whether we are going to be facing

:04:39.:04:41.

some rather tough decisions and Gibraltar. There was a discussion in

:04:42.:04:49.

2001, 2002, and there was a referendum on it, on the whole issue

:04:50.:04:53.

of whether they wanted to be part, still remain as UK citizens, part of

:04:54.:05:00.

written. And I wonder whether there will be an issue of joint

:05:01.:05:06.

sovereignty, whether it will emerge again. The other deal on the table

:05:07.:05:13.

are EU nationals, what is best Dyche is going to be? And UK Brits, what

:05:14.:05:19.

will their status be in the EU? The second issue is that border with

:05:20.:05:23.

Northern Ireland. That is the only border we have with EU, and everyone

:05:24.:05:29.

seems to be shocked that this is all on the table. And there is a

:05:30.:05:33.

multiplicity with which we will be confronted. The Telegraph lead story

:05:34.:05:41.

is that airports and nuclear power stations are on terror alerts. What

:05:42.:05:49.

is the information? There is an old physicist axiom about this kind of

:05:50.:05:54.

thing which it always boils down to something is always making something

:05:55.:06:01.

ahead of you and what is happening, allegedly Isis, I quit Daesh, has

:06:02.:06:14.

taken some of these -- I call it Daesh, take the airport security and

:06:15.:06:21.

build it, they have discovered they have the ability to actually get

:06:22.:06:25.

batteries inside of computers or whatever that can't be read. Always

:06:26.:06:33.

difficult to remain ahead of people who have time on their hands to come

:06:34.:06:39.

up with these schemes. A threat also to nuclear. It is very, very clear

:06:40.:06:43.

that once they've got the technology that Isis has, they are one step

:06:44.:06:50.

ahead of the security. Or they have now is this electronic caliphate,

:06:51.:06:56.

they are beaten on the ground so they have to keep it growing, they

:06:57.:07:01.

have to build these incredible... They are beating us on the

:07:02.:07:04.

technology. That makes them more dangerous. They are 100 times more

:07:05.:07:09.

dangerous. They are thinking about how to take everyday electronic

:07:10.:07:15.

items and get them past the system, and that was always going to happen.

:07:16.:07:21.

The Mail on Sunday, part of their campaign against the kind of videos

:07:22.:07:25.

you can access on very open platforms, Google but money is the

:07:26.:07:30.

headline, web giant cashes in on vile video showing how to get

:07:31.:07:38.

through a stab vest. A very troubling is Tory. This man has

:07:39.:07:42.

prepared a video made in a German word, exactly how you can use a

:07:43.:07:49.

knife to get through a stab vest. It is on YouTube. He is receiving money

:07:50.:07:55.

for sharing this stuff and is unapologetic about it and it seems

:07:56.:07:59.

as if we have this it Jewish and with Google -- it seems as if we

:08:00.:08:09.

have this situation with Google. There is a lot of pressure ring on

:08:10.:08:17.

companies like YouTube. They are responding in some cases to taking

:08:18.:08:23.

down these videos. I agree with you 100% but the big issue going forward

:08:24.:08:27.

is the question of freedom of access, freedom of speech, how do

:08:28.:08:33.

you define, with these open access media, how do you define what is

:08:34.:08:37.

indecent? I agree with you 100% and that becomes the issue and these are

:08:38.:08:43.

multinational corporations. Google do respond to things if you raise an

:08:44.:08:48.

objection. How can it possibly, with the best will in the world, they

:08:49.:08:53.

can't police the whole site, can they? Then maybe they need to be

:08:54.:09:01.

some rules that it complies with. It is not a platform, it is a

:09:02.:09:04.

publisher. People are making money out of it. We need to get a grip of

:09:05.:09:10.

this and I am astounded that the government has been so slow on

:09:11.:09:14.

getting onto this. I agree with you again, I think it partly has to do

:09:15.:09:19.

with well Google is located, that is a difficult and for the government

:09:20.:09:22.

to intervene on, but I agree with you. Was there supposed to be a

:09:23.:09:32.

Google tax which hasn't been paid? It is difficult to enforce these

:09:33.:09:36.

things, it just goes around, these multinationals. The Sunday Times

:09:37.:09:41.

reveal rich peers are paid for doing nothing. Some laws, not all of them,

:09:42.:09:48.

get up to ?40,000 tax-free from doing much work. This has resurfaced

:09:49.:09:53.

quite a bit. We are trying to understand what this is. Is it a

:09:54.:09:57.

false flag to mark of course they get paid. What is this story

:09:58.:10:05.

actually about? They are not breaking any rules, they are

:10:06.:10:09.

claiming money. We all know that so what is this actually about? Is it

:10:10.:10:14.

about getting rid of the Lords altogether? Or what is it? I didn't

:10:15.:10:19.

see anything in the story that was new or that would make me think, oh

:10:20.:10:24.

my God, this is horrible. And we never hear about those laws who do a

:10:25.:10:29.

great deal of work who are experts in their own field, no great deal,

:10:30.:10:35.

and you might actually say that the laws is quite cheap for what we get.

:10:36.:10:40.

A second elected chamber would be more expensive, potentially, but

:10:41.:10:45.

they would be. Well, I mean... Far be it from me to say... Oh, God on,

:10:46.:10:56.

Bonnie! You are here to save! The story, in particular, about their

:10:57.:11:00.

getting paid too much money, I don't know what this is about because

:11:01.:11:03.

people complain about that all the time and exact, there are experts in

:11:04.:11:12.

their that work very hard. Let's look at the Observer. Three stories

:11:13.:11:16.

here are related to Brexit in some way. What a surprise. Here we have

:11:17.:11:23.

the Observer. NHS recruits must be given special status after Brexit,

:11:24.:11:28.

MPs urge. The fear is that there are so many people who come to the UK to

:11:29.:11:34.

work in the NHS that could we really do without them if they were not

:11:35.:11:37.

allowed to stay or come in the future? There are studies that would

:11:38.:11:40.

show what it would be like if they were not here and it is not a pretty

:11:41.:11:45.

picture. It is the same with investment bankers who found most of

:11:46.:11:50.

our houses and businesses, they want passports to be able to stay, some

:11:51.:11:53.

of them are thinking about going to Dublin. I think someone should do a

:11:54.:11:58.

study and do the NHS, and show all the EU nationals out of the NHS.

:11:59.:12:05.

That is the story. Do a model, and let the nation see what it looks

:12:06.:12:13.

like without EU nationals. We can train our own people to work in

:12:14.:12:17.

these roles. I think this story is interesting in that the focus is

:12:18.:12:21.

generally on the hospitality industry and the migrant labour

:12:22.:12:27.

there but we tend to forget how many Spaniards or whatever are working

:12:28.:12:31.

within the NHS, and that will be a big row within all these

:12:32.:12:34.

negotiations, as to when the start date for people may be having to

:12:35.:12:41.

leave begins. And we are starting to find out how much this state is so

:12:42.:12:46.

into wind and interwoven with the single lock, it is going to be

:12:47.:12:50.

massive, massive, massive. Have a look at a cup stories the

:12:51.:13:15.

Sunday express. EU sends us that bill for Wi-Fi and a trip to

:13:16.:13:19.

dentist. Brussels would pay for broad band, and it had -- Italian

:13:20.:13:26.

fishermen even after we quit the EU. Spanish Ph.D. Students will also

:13:27.:13:35.

benefit from our generosity. It all comes down to what the bill will be

:13:36.:13:39.

for this divorce, how the kitties and how extensive it is. It is not

:13:40.:13:43.

quite clear sense none of this has been decided. That we will be paying

:13:44.:13:50.

any of these bills. This is all a matter of negotiation. But we have

:13:51.:13:55.

been given fairly clear integrations that there could be a bill of ?50

:13:56.:14:00.

million for commitments we have made upfront. It is not uncomplicated. It

:14:01.:14:07.

is a contract. So, either the country decides to pay the contract

:14:08.:14:11.

or they don't pay the contract, I don't think it is very complicated.

:14:12.:14:16.

It is a matter of people starting to see now how much we wound up and

:14:17.:14:20.

tied into it. More pressing issue on the front page, potentially, true

:14:21.:14:26.

blue passport reborn. Do you remember those? Liz Hurley was her

:14:27.:14:35.

passport back. She once Deutsch Marks, she wants Franks, she was

:14:36.:14:39.

Lira. This is a ?500 million project. There are figures all over

:14:40.:14:45.

these papers and I am never sure what it actually means. Would it

:14:46.:14:52.

only cost 500 million to replace British maroon passports? They keep

:14:53.:14:57.

calling them pink ex mark they are maroon purple! It is fairly easy to

:14:58.:15:03.

work out the cost but it is not the most pressing of issue, is it? For

:15:04.:15:10.

some people, nationhood is exemplified by the passport. But

:15:11.:15:13.

there are people who don't know the Navy passport, there are lots of

:15:14.:15:18.

people in the passport who don't have a passport and certainly not a

:15:19.:15:25.

pink one? You do have to remove the cover when you go through passport

:15:26.:15:29.

control. That is it for the papers this hour.

:15:30.:15:33.

You'll both be back at 11.30pm for another look at the stories

:15:34.:15:37.
