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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are Jim Waterson, who's the political editor

:00:19.:00:24.

of Buzzfeed and the public appointments adviser,

:00:25.:00:26.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with the cover of the FT

:00:27.:00:37.

features a stark warning from President Trump over North

:00:38.:00:40.

The Telegraph also carries the President's comments

:00:41.:00:43.

on its front page, ahead of his first meeting

:00:44.:00:46.

The i focuses on the row what it calls the 'fighting talk'

:00:47.:00:50.

The same story is on the front page of the Metro, with the paper

:00:51.:00:56.

highlighting the former Tory leader's claim

:00:57.:00:57.

that the Prime Minister would consider war to keep the territory.

:00:58.:01:02.

The Express says 20 minutes' walk a day could save your life,

:01:03.:01:05.

following a report by the British Heart Foundation that

:01:06.:01:08.

three quarters of heart patients take no exercise at all.

:01:09.:01:11.

Donald Trump's warning to the Chinese is the Times' lead

:01:12.:01:13.

tomorrow, with the President saying he would take unilateral action

:01:14.:01:16.

if necessary to halt Kim Jong-Un's nuclear programme.

:01:17.:01:18.

The Daily Mirror carries a photo of the daughter of Tracey Wilkinson,

:01:19.:01:22.

visiting the scene where her mother was stabbed to death

:01:23.:01:25.

alongside her brother Pierce in Stourbridge last week.

:01:26.:01:28.

And finally the Guardian says changes to benefit payments

:01:29.:01:31.

to families and the bereaved will mean thousands will be poorer

:01:32.:01:34.

Let's start with Gibraltar. It is all over the place, including page

:01:35.:01:51.

six of the Daily Mail. The Prime Minister would go to war over rock,

:01:52.:01:57.

it says, Tories in a startling claim the meet is ready to defend

:01:58.:02:01.

Gibraltar are just as Thatcher did for the Falklands. With Michael

:02:02.:02:05.

Howard... The former Conservative leader did the rounds on the morning

:02:06.:02:10.

political shows this morning and he made a comment that as much as

:02:11.:02:14.

Margaret Thatcher defended the Falklands, he is sure that Theresa

:02:15.:02:18.

May will show resolve and before you know it we have this spread it where

:02:19.:02:22.

we are weighing up the relative powers of each Navy,... We are not

:02:23.:02:31.

going to go to war. We may have diplomatic skirmishes that the main

:02:32.:02:35.

thing is it is telling what the mentality is of the people on the

:02:36.:02:40.

Conservative Party, or a hard-core Brexiteers. This is their mentality.

:02:41.:02:45.

It is also saying that Downing Street could have pushed this down

:02:46.:02:49.

the agenda but it is choosing to let it run. It shows their thinking at

:02:50.:02:53.

the moment. And now the Daily Mail is comparing the size of naval fleet

:02:54.:03:06.

who has the biggest miner? We have, right? -- the biggest armada? But

:03:07.:03:17.

this sets an icy tone, doesn't it? It does and there is no need for it

:03:18.:03:22.

at all. I do not know we the Times have remained silent on this because

:03:23.:03:27.

they could say not to be stupid, they were going to have a proper

:03:28.:03:32.

discussion and negotiation. But at least we can revisit stories about

:03:33.:03:35.

the Falklands and Margaret Thatcher and those individuals. She is their

:03:36.:03:41.

leader, their Queen, Margaret Thatcher, so they are happy to be

:03:42.:03:44.

talking about her exploits. Another story on the page to do with Brexit,

:03:45.:03:51.

a relevance here because it says that Spain would not veto Scotland

:03:52.:03:59.

joining the Brussels Clob. That was always a suggestion that Spain would

:04:00.:04:06.

veto it because Catalonia may get an idea from it. I am sure Nicola

:04:07.:04:13.

Sturgeon is more than happy to hear that. This wondering now why they

:04:14.:04:18.

are dragging their feet because they already have one vote. Another idea

:04:19.:04:21.

here, cutting students from migrant total. That done that a long time

:04:22.:04:28.

ago because many students come here, here to in neighbouring money with

:04:29.:04:35.

them. They also go back home in a Finnish study in store on the whole

:04:36.:04:38.

tends to be that students come here, pay fees, and then go home of their

:04:39.:04:44.

own accord. What is interesting is that Theresa May pushed against the

:04:45.:04:49.

idea of including student... Against excluding it from the immigration

:04:50.:04:54.

figures. The Cabinet, many members of the Cabinet a blinking to

:04:55.:04:57.

newspapers that someone has had another go again, that this should

:04:58.:05:05.

be different but to read the -- Theresa May is convinced that people

:05:06.:05:09.

will not trust her. Let's have a look at the story here. People from

:05:10.:05:19.

different parts of the EU who are already, before they know whether or

:05:20.:05:23.

not they must leave, but feeling that there is no place for them.

:05:24.:05:29.

This is a good report from one of our senior reporters. We do not

:05:30.:05:33.

claim a mass exodus but we are looking at EU citizens who are here

:05:34.:05:37.

legally who no longer feel that this is the country for them. It is no

:05:38.:05:41.

longer the sort of place they want to be. We have a Spanish teaching

:05:42.:05:45.

here who is leaving because this is no longer the play she moved four.

:05:46.:05:50.

NHS workers as well who came over legally from European countries.

:05:51.:05:54.

They would be allowed to stay as they wanted to post Brexit that they

:05:55.:05:59.

are saying that they feel the country has changed. Rightly or

:06:00.:06:03.

wrongly, they just feel that something has changed. People you

:06:04.:06:09.

spoke to have said that they do not feel that Britain no longer feels

:06:10.:06:13.

like a country that would be a part. And they have also suffered attacks.

:06:14.:06:19.

That is a problem, that people feeling all of a sudden that their

:06:20.:06:22.

neighbours and friends are looking at them differently and labelling

:06:23.:06:25.

them as Avar. That is quite worrying because that is when you get people

:06:26.:06:30.

being attacked and afraid to be somewhere. -- labelling them as

:06:31.:06:38.

other. Before June 23, it was business as usual. All of a sudden

:06:39.:06:42.

now, people are looking at them and asking them why they are still here.

:06:43.:06:45.

These individuals are clearly saying yes, we are going. We want to go

:06:46.:06:50.

somewhere where we can bring up our children where they will not feel as

:06:51.:06:54.

if they will be bullied. A nurse saying that he was told that he was

:06:55.:07:01.

stealing jobs. How anecdotal as this, rather than hard evidence? We

:07:02.:07:08.

have no... We have relatively few ideas of how many are living here.

:07:09.:07:15.

And how many are moving back. But it is an interesting story to the wider

:07:16.:07:18.

narrative of how many people will want to stay here after Brexit. I am

:07:19.:07:24.

worried that with the NHS desperate individuals who are now leaving and

:07:25.:07:29.

who will fill that gap? Have a look now at the Financial Times with an

:07:30.:07:32.

exclusive interview with President Trump ahead of his meeting with the

:07:33.:07:36.

Chinese this week. If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will.

:07:37.:07:41.

This has been picked out. We don't know exactly what the question he

:07:42.:07:47.

was asked that his answer is that. We don't know what sorting it out

:07:48.:07:50.

means, whether that means that sanctions or something more scary.

:07:51.:07:55.

When asked for more details, Donald Trump says he does not have anything

:07:56.:08:00.

else to say totally so it is going to be one of those things where it

:08:01.:08:04.

is in his head, he has an idea of what he will do and maybe he will

:08:05.:08:08.

tweet them to death but it is worrying that this is his first

:08:09.:08:11.

chance to meet the Chinese leader and this is his opening salvo. Do

:08:12.:08:15.

something now about North Korea or I will. And they are probably

:08:16.:08:20.

thinking... Sorry? We are China. If we do not want to do something...

:08:21.:08:25.

But after many months of Donald Trump saying stuff, behind the

:08:26.:08:28.

scenes he may be less robust about it. North Korea is a genuinely

:08:29.:08:33.

slightly terrifying threat at the moment something probably does need

:08:34.:08:37.

to be done. Sanctions have not worked so far. I don't quite know

:08:38.:08:41.

whether or not we need military intervention. There is a problem

:08:42.:08:45.

there and it is not just completely in the head of Donald Trump. China

:08:46.:08:51.

has more influence, probably than any other country. Yes. China is

:08:52.:08:55.

terrified about the collapse of North Korea because it would result

:08:56.:08:58.

into a refugee crisis on its border. At the moment they can keep that at

:08:59.:09:03.

bay. Let's move now to the times. I will show you quickly. -- the Times.

:09:04.:09:13.

These are wild stallions. I had no idea that we had wild horses. That

:09:14.:09:18.

is not the story. I'm just fascinated by that. New Internet

:09:19.:09:28.

domain names. An intranet domain with. Kid at the end. -- Internet.

:09:29.:09:36.

Many people may think that is something for them and it is not

:09:37.:09:39.

being regulated like other domains are. Yes, they say that this one is

:09:40.:09:43.

under the control of Russia with no measures in place to prevent

:09:44.:09:46.

convicted child abusers from setting up Web sites bearing that name. It

:09:47.:09:53.

should have the same standards that Internet Corporation names do. It is

:09:54.:09:57.

almost like a free for all and that is the worrying thing because

:09:58.:10:00.

children will look at it and think that there is something there for

:10:01.:10:04.

them. Not knowing who is behind it has they been checked or verified.

:10:05.:10:09.

These new domains that are dished out by an international organisation

:10:10.:10:15.

that is based, it is the Internet Corporation for assigned names and

:10:16.:10:20.

Numbers. It is based in California. I must admit I read this story and I

:10:21.:10:24.

thought it was a lot of scaremongering. I really do not see

:10:25.:10:29.

the riskier. The idea that you are more likely to have a kid entrapped

:10:30.:10:33.

because they are going to play games. Kids rather than play kids

:10:34.:10:38.

.com is over the top. Sometimes when it comes to the Internet there is...

:10:39.:10:44.

A lot of real risks and there is a lot of very easily managed ones on

:10:45.:10:48.

this one seems to be very easily managed. If you are a parent, watch

:10:49.:10:53.

what your children are doing. That is all. But, don't forget that

:10:54.:10:58.

sometimes parents do look at things very quickly and think, oh, that is

:10:59.:11:02.

obviously child friendly, just because a hazard on the end. As you

:11:03.:11:06.

said, you need to look it into more detail. Eyes on the back of your

:11:07.:11:10.

head and everything. Quite difficult. The Telegraph. Police

:11:11.:11:15.

warn Bail changes will help to release criminals. At the moment,

:11:16.:11:19.

people can be held on bail for an immensely long time. Yes, we had an

:11:20.:11:29.

issue with one man and, certainly, that seems to be an extraordinary

:11:30.:11:33.

amount of time that you would expect that the police should be able to

:11:34.:11:36.

conduct as many investigations as possible in that long period of

:11:37.:11:42.

time. But it is not necessarily all joined up. The information is stored

:11:43.:11:46.

in various places and we do not have a national police service. 28 days,

:11:47.:11:51.

you know, isn't really enough time? I don't think so. Then you will have

:11:52.:11:56.

innocent people who do not have their lives ruined as a result of

:11:57.:12:00.

this change and durability people who do not get prosecuted. So it is

:12:01.:12:07.

just about finding a balance. Police are unhappy about it. They think it

:12:08.:12:12.

will be a dangerous development. The next time, the government are being

:12:13.:12:16.

praised the taking this stance. They should be able to extend it. If 28

:12:17.:12:22.

days, they feel they can provide evidence to say there is additional

:12:23.:12:26.

time needed and so, two weeks or three weeks, I think that is a

:12:27.:12:31.

problem. If I have had a year, you should not be able to say that it

:12:32.:12:36.

will be another couple of days or weeks because you have had over a

:12:37.:12:41.

year already. Having a look at the Times. I promised you zombies and

:12:42.:12:48.

here they are. Hold on a minute. Jim thinks the headline is far more

:12:49.:12:53.

exciting. Fear of zombies at lead to bodies being mutilated and burned.

:12:54.:13:05.

What?!? It is a fantastic story of dry archaeological news being made

:13:06.:13:08.

into an interesting story. They found burned bones in a deserted

:13:09.:13:13.

village not far from where I grew up and from where my recently deceased

:13:14.:13:19.

and much loved great uncle was regularly digging up bones. They

:13:20.:13:28.

found that there were burned, the corpses were burnt and dismembered

:13:29.:13:32.

and the archaeological logically having seen this evidence it decided

:13:33.:13:35.

that stopping them walking from their graves seems to be the best

:13:36.:13:39.

fit for the evidence. A bit of a jump... I do trust them, don't you?

:13:40.:13:46.

Unless we have a better idea, I cannot think of anything. Devious

:13:47.:13:51.

treatment to stop corpses rising from the dead. I will put that into

:13:52.:13:58.

my well. What I like, however, is it shows us the dark side of mediaeval

:13:59.:14:03.

belief provides a graphic reminder about different the mediaeval view

:14:04.:14:06.

of the world wars from our own. I think that is the leap because there

:14:07.:14:12.

is a plethora of zombie films out these days. This could have been

:14:13.:14:16.

something that happened in 2017 rather than all those many years

:14:17.:14:20.

ago. But, yes let I think we have not changed that much. Quickly, can

:14:21.:14:26.

we look at the express? The daily walk to save your life. 20 million

:14:27.:14:29.

people are not getting enough exercise according to the British

:14:30.:14:34.

Heart Foundation. In some parts, 97% of people are physically inactive.

:14:35.:14:39.

God forbid any news channel viewer sitting at home on the sofa tonight

:14:40.:14:43.

a worrying about whether or not they got their walking today. But that

:14:44.:14:47.

is... We know this stuff. If you live a healthy lifestyle you are

:14:48.:14:51.

less likely to get ill. It is hard to make a new habit. Bad habits are

:14:52.:14:59.

easy. We don't mind walking on a treadmill or watching -- while

:15:00.:15:07.

watching this. That is it. Thank you very much.

:15:08.:15:16.
