scored his very first international goal... My boy! That is all from Sir

:00:00.:00:00.

Rod and all from Sportsday. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:15.

to what the the papers will be With me are Rachel Cunliffe,

:00:16.:00:18.

Deputy Editor of the Political news website Reaction,

:00:19.:00:22.

and Matthew Syed, The Telegraph reports that

:00:23.:00:23.

Britain will be paying into the EU until 2020 -

:00:24.:00:37.

a year after the country officially A high tech plastic bag that

:00:38.:00:40.

could save the lives of premature It reports doctors could be using it

:00:41.:00:48.

on babies in three years. The I leads with the a survey

:00:49.:00:53.

which suggests that voters want the Prime Minister to take part

:00:54.:00:56.

in TV debates, Tomorrow's Daily Express has

:00:57.:00:58.

Madeline McCann on its front page as the paper marks ten years

:00:59.:01:04.

since her disappearance. The Daily Mirror also leads

:01:05.:01:11.

with the anniversary, reporting a senior police officer

:01:12.:01:13.

claims there's a new Criticism of free schools funding

:01:14.:01:16.

is the big story in the Guardian. The paper also features a picture

:01:17.:01:23.

of President Trump's The Times shares that

:01:24.:01:25.

image of Ivanka along with Christine Lagarde

:01:26.:01:33.

and Angela Merkel, but its lead story claims senior Conservatives

:01:34.:01:35.

want to sideline Boris Johnson Quite a nice mix of stories. Rachel,

:01:36.:01:48.

let's kick off with the story in the Telegraph. Yet again, a story about

:01:49.:01:55.

how much potentially we will be going the EU or how much the

:01:56.:02:01.

unreasonable EU is demanding of us, and this time the key number is 8

:02:02.:02:05.

billion, but we have had numbers in the millions and billions, this is

:02:06.:02:10.

not a particularly new story. What is new is that there are now reports

:02:11.:02:14.

that this is being considered as part of the negotiation on the

:02:15.:02:18.

British side to help us get the transitional deal which I think will

:02:19.:02:24.

probably make some hard Brexiteers very upset, that we will continue

:02:25.:02:29.

paying the EU bill until 2020. There is a case that this is money we

:02:30.:02:35.

committed. The EU budget frameworks are seven years so this is money

:02:36.:02:38.

that was allocated to these projects. It is definitely showing

:02:39.:02:44.

that one of our key negotiating chips is going to be our

:02:45.:02:50.

contributions. We have the money, they need the money. So I think you

:02:51.:02:55.

can put a fairly positive spin on this. So it will be about the bill

:02:56.:03:01.

versus the trade deal we get as a result? It will be the opening

:03:02.:03:05.

gambit in what will be an extraordinary, complex, multifaceted

:03:06.:03:09.

deal with lots of moving parts masterminded by David Davis if the

:03:10.:03:14.

Tories win the next general election. This shortfall in the

:03:15.:03:18.

budget is causing anxiety on that side of the channel and it is

:03:19.:03:21.

clearly a bargaining chip if we want to get really privileged access to

:03:22.:03:26.

the free market, which is crucial to our economy. But I think you are

:03:27.:03:30.

right, the really hard Brexiteers who would rather crash out... They

:03:31.:03:37.

would rather be left today. Exactly, they are anxious. I think Theresa

:03:38.:03:44.

May will be less beholden to the hardline Brexiteers and may allow

:03:45.:03:55.

her to go shoot a hard ish Brexit. You mentioned Theresa May which

:03:56.:04:06.

takes us onto the I. We want Theresa May in TV debates, say voters. Who

:04:07.:04:14.

are these photos? I would agree with voters to say we want to have her

:04:15.:04:18.

in. You can understand her reluctance, she is way ahead of the

:04:19.:04:22.

polls, everybody expects her to get a three figure majority in the House

:04:23.:04:28.

of Commons. There is a downside risk that she will go in and stumble,

:04:29.:04:33.

Jeremy Corbyn will shine, Tim Farron will do something remarkable. Do you

:04:34.:04:37.

remember when Nick Clegg popped in, and everybody agreed with Nick.

:04:38.:04:45.

Absolutely went sky high in the polls. Having said that, I think

:04:46.:04:51.

these debates will make a tiny difference but I don't think in this

:04:52.:04:55.

particular election they will make a difference. Is the appetite there,

:04:56.:05:02.

do you think? It says 54% of people said they want to see Theresa May in

:05:03.:05:08.

the debate, I certainly don't. You would rather have them than not,

:05:09.:05:14.

wouldn't you? I think the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn shouting at an

:05:15.:05:17.

empty chair is a lot more entertaining than Theresa May.

:05:18.:05:25.

Injecting some humour and entertainment into this otherwise

:05:26.:05:29.

rather boring election campaign. It wouldn't be the most distracting

:05:30.:05:33.

piece of television if you had a group of senior politicians standing

:05:34.:05:36.

round in a circle and an empty chair, I'm not sure you could take

:05:37.:05:42.

the debate seriously, could you? Of course not, you can't take it

:05:43.:05:48.

seriously. They say Labour accuses the Prime Minister of running

:05:49.:05:51.

scared. I think the only thing she has to be scared of at the moment is

:05:52.:05:54.

what you will do with her massive landslide victory when she gets it.

:05:55.:06:02.

I do think she should be tested in a debate. The democratic duty almost.

:06:03.:06:10.

I do think that. It's become part of the tapestry of American politics.

:06:11.:06:14.

No serious candidate wouldn't be able to take part without a debate.

:06:15.:06:21.

And I think it's possible Theresa May will be dogged by the idea she's

:06:22.:06:25.

a bit of a bottler, and the pressure might get too great. It really

:06:26.:06:30.

depends what happens in the polls. If this reluctance to take part in

:06:31.:06:35.

the debate makes an impact on the polls, maybe she will buckle. Her

:06:36.:06:40.

biggest problem right now is stopping Tory voters from getting

:06:41.:06:46.

complacent and not turning up. Rachel, staying with you and the I.

:06:47.:06:58.

As their is a photograph of the wife of Emmanuel Macron. Yes, the

:06:59.:07:03.

potential future first Lady of brands, and a bit of a scandal in

:07:04.:07:09.

that she's 25 years older than him, I think 64 years old, and she was

:07:10.:07:15.

headteacher at school when he was 15. Obviously this is France and we

:07:16.:07:25.

don't care about that. She could potentially be the first lady. I

:07:26.:07:29.

think the age difference has been commented on a lot, I'd like to make

:07:30.:07:33.

the point it is almost exactly the same as the age difference between

:07:34.:07:40.

Donald Trump and his wife. Is this a debating point of significance? I

:07:41.:07:46.

think the love story between these two is extraordinary. They met when

:07:47.:07:50.

he was 15 and she was teacher as you rightly say. She was married, and

:07:51.:07:59.

with the daughter. But she was won over by this 15-year-old who would

:08:00.:08:03.

read extracts from a play that he was about to act in, and she said

:08:04.:08:08.

the weight of his intellect that she still doesn't feel she has fully

:08:09.:08:12.

probed, on their long walks by the river she fell in love and he said I

:08:13.:08:18.

will marry you. It took until he was 29 before he popped the question. It

:08:19.:08:25.

is remarkable. And remember French presidents often have rather

:08:26.:08:28.

remarkable love stories. This seems like a true love story. He mentioned

:08:29.:08:37.

Donald Trump. Ivanka appears on the front of the Guardian. She had a bit

:08:38.:08:46.

of a hard time at this event is because she was asked about her

:08:47.:08:57.

father 's attitude towards women. On his presidential platform is

:08:58.:08:59.

promising to give maternity leave it for the first time in political

:09:00.:09:04.

American history, but this was met from giggles in the audience. She

:09:05.:09:09.

was asked about his attitude towards women in his private life, of course

:09:10.:09:13.

the comment made off-the-cuff in the campaign. She obviously loves her

:09:14.:09:20.

father very much, respect him hugely, and defended him rather

:09:21.:09:23.

well, I think. Even though I don't agree with Trump's policies or his

:09:24.:09:31.

actions towards women, I think he has a pretty solid family life. I

:09:32.:09:37.

don't feel sorry for her. She is the Golden girl, one half of the power

:09:38.:09:40.

couple potentially taking over the world. If you look at the continuing

:09:41.:09:45.

deals her husband and she is doing on behalf of trumps other

:09:46.:09:49.

businesses. I'm a little bit torn by this story because as you can see in

:09:50.:09:53.

the picture they are all smiling and there have been reports that she and

:09:54.:09:58.

Angela Merkel have very good chemistry, which is in contrast to

:09:59.:10:02.

when Donald Trump met Angela Merkel and it was all very awkward. She

:10:03.:10:07.

asked for a handshake and he pretended not to hear her. If she is

:10:08.:10:12.

away for the leaders to get their point across to him, it is good

:10:13.:10:17.

there is somebody. But at the same time what has she done, she a

:10:18.:10:23.

jewellery designer on a stage with two of the most powerful women in

:10:24.:10:31.

the world, the head of the IMF and the Chancellor of Germany,

:10:32.:10:33.

pretending she's there on her own merit. At the same time Hillary

:10:34.:10:40.

Clinton is getting a huge amount of attacks and really vitriolic

:10:41.:10:49.

responses for the fact that she won't say she went for Congress

:10:50.:10:57.

clearly enough. I agree with you on nepotism, it is a good point. I'm

:10:58.:11:04.

going to go to the Metro. This is an extraordinary image, grow bags for

:11:05.:11:09.

babies. It is an artificial womb that has been tested on lands --

:11:10.:11:24.

lambs. It is a pretty fantastic technological innovation. Isn't it

:11:25.:11:27.

brilliant when scientists come up with something that can change

:11:28.:11:31.

people's lives. In three years they think it will be ready to deploy on

:11:32.:11:36.

premature babies whose chance of survival will be massively

:11:37.:11:37.

increased. On the ... It says they grew bigger, and

:11:38.:11:59.

opened their eyes, which is incredible. And we have the hummus

:12:00.:12:12.

crisis on the front of the Telegraph. Yes, this bad tasting,

:12:13.:12:24.

metallic hummus. I found out a presenter had it for lunch, but you

:12:25.:12:29.

bought it from an upmarket supermarket. I bought it from a

:12:30.:12:33.

different place mentioned here. Other supermarkets are available. I

:12:34.:12:38.

don't know much about this story apart from that in one Sainsbury's

:12:39.:12:41.

store where they were totally out of stock, where the hummus use to be

:12:42.:12:53.

very advertised a recipe on how to make it yourself with directions to

:12:54.:12:58.

the ingredients in the store. That is all for The Papers tonight. Thank

:12:59.:13:04.

you to Rachel and Matthew. Goodbye. Good evening. Another cold and

:13:05.:13:12.

frosty night lies
