Pugh is being praised for her performance in Lady Macbeth. Find


out what Jason Solomons made of the film and the rest of this week's


cinema releases in the Film Review. Welcome to our look ahead to what


the papers will bring us tomorrow. With us Jim Waterson, political


editor at BuzzFeed and Fleet street Fox Suzy Boniface, columnist at the


Mirror. Tomorrow's front pages, bank holiday Monday front pages, leading


bankers are saying interest-free credit cards are ticking time bombs.


The i says Corbyn will pledge ?3 billion to education, reversing


Conservative pledges. Plans to make social media forms responsible for


digital crimes. The Daily Express focuses on the foreign aid budget,


?15 million is funding anti-smoking campaigns in some of the world's


most corrupt countries. The Guardian leads on Theresa May's comments on


tax, saying the Prime Minister has signalled a rise in National


Insurance and income taxed after pledging not to increase VAT. The


Times has a similar lead to the Telegraph, social media giants


failing to handle dangerous online content. The Mail is considering tax


breaks for elderly relatives -- the Mail says Theresa May is


considering. And the Sun says Anthony Joshua's not forgotten the


bill at his local launderette after his stunning victory. It won't


change him, it is like lottery winners, they always say that. The


Guardian, we will begin with what's been happening over the weekend in


particularly today. Theresa May ruling out an increase in VAT, as


Labour have as well, but National Insurance contributions and income


tax might be within her sites. Carefully not saying anything else


and it seems to be what they're saying is the overall tax take won't


increase, the Tories may fiddle with a few things within that,


interestingly some of the things Theresa May was talking about,


weakening the triple lock in pensions, making it a double lock,


someone figure that out for me, and reinvesting the money into long-term


social care, which will help some of the social care problems we've got.


There's a suggestion they are considering taxes on highly


expensive homes, the mansion tax, Ed Miliband's idea, massively derided,


and not liked at all, now it will possibly be in the Conservative


manifesto. A lot of these things are almost Labour policies. I'm not


quite sure that Labour would feel quite that way but you talk to Ed


Miliband and the team around him at the moment and they feel vindicated


all the stuff the last election was fought on being a risk to the


nation's wealth is now being adopted in part by Carizza made's team. The


bit to me buried in this is the triple lock pensions, which has been


a Tory policy for so long, Theresa May has basically signalled that


would be in the Tory manifesto this time round but Labour is going to


fight that as a key pledge. Labour will be the party giving far more


money to pensioners and the Conservatives are likely to say the


pensions are increasing at a lower rate. It's a topsy-turvy world.


There's one fascinating bit in here that people might find interesting,


internal Tory figures have Theresa May polling ahead of her party.


That's why she's not mentioning Conservatives and Tories very much


and a poster saying Theresa May in big letters and conservatives in


little letters, but Labour is the opposite, Labour has a brand not


quite so bad but Jeremy Corbyn is not polling anywhere near as well as


the party overall. But Jeremy Corbyn on the i is pledging ?3 billion to


close the education gap. We know a lot of head teachers are saying they


will really struggle over the next couple of years to make ends meet.


Friends who work in teaching say the same, they are looking at whether


they can lose a teaching assistant here or cut an entire teaching posts


here and cope with one fewer staff member. -- post. The interesting


thing is Jeremy Corbyn has made a pledge at a teachers conference but


because we don't have the Labour manifesto yet and everything costed,


the Tories are hammering him for saying this pledge without costing


it. Neither of the two major parties have released details of their


funding for their policies, it's allowing the Tories to once again


said Jeremy Corbyn will raise taxes. We're not going to have very long to


pick over the manifesto is when they are published. They didn't know an


election was coming so all the parties are drawing up one quickly


on the back of the nearest fag packet to find out what they can get


away with. It will be interesting to see. Because those manifestoes to a


degree would have been rushed out, more than normal if we had had the


election in 2020 as expected, they would have spent a year working up


to it, this time it is very quick. We know the conservative one will be


very quick and Labour one will be out three weeks before polling, they


were very much caught on the hop. The Daily Mirror has an ex-


premier's bombshell on the front, Tony Blair returning to politics to


help Britain says the Mirror in this exclusive. What is he going to do,


how is he going to help? It's not clear if you read the story, over


the past several months he has spoken to newspapers and given


interviews talking about setting up a think tank or institute that will


promote centre-left ideas and centre-left politicians, use some of


the money he has earned from after he was Prime Minister to fund that


and help Labour back to the centre ground. Inside the story itself it


talks about getting out into the country and reconnecting. He flatly


says he won't stand for Parliament, he's not going to reconnect with


anybody and he's actually saying there are ideas out there that


people will be interested in. He hasn't got long to get them out


there and talked about and will they be accepted by the current


Parliamentary party? When we write about Labour politics, certainly


online with a younger audience, Tony Blair is the one term that sets


people off, he's more hated by most of the left wing readers we write


for than figures on the Tory right. It's a total turnaround from ten


years ago when he left power. Might he have a constituency still in


people that do remember his days with affection perhaps and think


that he did do some good stuff. There might be the demographic that


is more likely to vote, slightly older people, the issue will be when


he says he's back and this is what he is going to do, what will he do?


All he has done so far is give a series of interviews giving his


opinion about Brexit and the Labour Party and that is all he is doing,


causing a fuss for others. Because of the baggage that comes with him,


there's the unfortunate truth whenever he makes an intervention it


doesn't help because he is trying to help. Whenever he says you should


back this moderate Labour politician, that's the kiss of


death. If he wants to help he should be as quiet as possible and use the


money for the things he wants to use it for but stop giving interviews.


Someone once their period of silence I think. The Telegraph, Facebook


must pay to police Internet. A tweet from Ian Finlay saying it is too


late, these are global phenomena, global companies, different rules


and standards apply all over the world. We saw this when Amber Rudd,


the Home Secretary, was trying to get WhatsApp, owned by Facebook, to


break its encryption essentially after the Westminster terror attack


and WhatsApp, which literally has 1 billion customers around the world


and has made a big deal about being encrypted from end to end, shrugged


their shoulders and said what are you going to do? This is what we


promised our customers. We are reaching the point the sites are so


big, three or four years ago we were talking about what's on the Internet


and all of us are on our phones all day checking Facebook, your


grandmother is on there as much as your little cousin honour at the end


result is the theme is basically the public sphere Daschle little cousin


and at the end. -- little cousin and at the end. If it's not possible to


police it in an old-fashioned sense, is this a threat just to get them to


tidy up their act? This is a report by the Home Affairs Select


Committee, which has no legislative power, saying they think something


should be done, I way to push the Home Office to meet Internet bosses.


The way these companies operate, if you defend somebody on the Internet


or Facebook or if you commit a crime, their argument is we are not


a publisher in the way the Daily Mail or the Daily Telegraph is. We


are effectively the medium, we are no more liable for the criminality


someone else has committed using our medium than the person who chop down


the tree that made the paper that printed the newspaper the Daily


Telegraph used to defame somebody. They say they are not a publisher in


law. At the moment they say they are publishers they have do accept


responsibility for everyone and that is their worst nightmare. That would


be a massive pay-out so they won't do that but if they going to be the


producer and the medium then they can't be involved in policing it,


that's not their job either. The Times, Wimbledon prize smashes ?2


million because the pound isn't worth what it was. With Brexit there


have been unforeseen circumstances, nobody told us about this when we


voted, because the pound has fallen significantly, the ?2 million the


singles winners had last year would now be worth a lot less so they are


having to up the prize money to at least 2.25 and to make it the same


as last year. Interestingly last year, Serena Williams, who won the


ladies singles on July the night, earned $340,000 less than if she had


had the final on June the 21st -- July the night. We deprived her of


340 US dollars due to Brexit -- July the ninth. She will be very pregnant


when she comes back. She will be about to pop so I don't think she


will be coming. I advise against it, Serena. BuzzFeed as promised. Who?


Some upstart website. Is it a newspaper? Let's read this, Theresa


May says there are complex reasons why nurses use food banks, and


interview this morning with Andrew Marr quoting figures from the Royal


College of nursing. A story a lot of our readers got excited about this


morning when she was on the Andrew Marr Show on the BBC this morning


and was repeatedly asked, you not concerned about the report from the


role College of nursing saying some nurses are turning to food banks. In


one response she said there's many complex reasons why people use food


banks -- Royal College of Surgeons. DG explain what they were? She


reverted back to her campaign pitch and avoided the question -- did she


explain. During the campaign she has reverted back to soundbites about


strong and stable leadership, whenever you drill down to key


issues, she has been reluctant and has gone back to talking points.


It's as much about her engagement with questions in interviews as it


is about the context of what was said. Social media had a field day


with this one. In order to use the food bank you have to have a letter


from a GP or some other authority figure that says you are hungry and


you anticipate you will soon be hungry or your children are already


hungry. You don't get to pop into a food bank because Waitrose could be


a bit busy. Going to a food bank you have to have an address, all the


food that is in there are things that are donated from good causes,


it's not exactly people benefiting normally from this. You don't have


complex reasons to go there. You are hungry, you are poor, you are


probably in work and that's not playing enough to get you to the end


of the week and you have children and you need nappies and someone has


been good enough to donate and you're able to access that charity


quite easily with a letter from your GP, that's the once and for reason


you use a food bank for. Thank you. -- once and for reason. The Sun,


Brit Champ's. A vowel to make ?1 billion, that would be something we


would all want to do -- Brit Champ's vow -- a vow. Unless he has got a


pretty big dry-cleaning bill he will be all right. Anthony Joshua, who


won the boxing at Wembley Stadium the other night, and he is now on


his way to all manner of pay-outs for getting hit very hard in front


of a lot of people. Doing lot nicer and a lot less controversial than


Tyson Fury -- a lot. In order to make ?1 billion he has to fight 67


such fights to make that kind of thing. We don't want to see him do


that because of his eye, which is a bit damaged today, as is Vladimir


Klitschko, who didn't even win. All of the front pages are on the
