them. The latest Alien film, directed by Ridley Scott. It has had

:00:00.:00:00.

some mixed reviews. Find out what Mark Kermode made of it in. -- made

:00:00.:00:15.

of it in The Film Review. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:16.:00:21.

to what the papers will be With me are Anne Ashworth,

:00:22.:00:27.

who's the associate editor at The Times, and Bonnie Greer,

:00:28.:00:30.

playwright and writer Let's take a look at

:00:31.:00:32.

the front pages then. The Telegraph leads with Friday's

:00:33.:00:38.

cyber attack that hit 48 NHS trusts. It says thousands of operations

:00:39.:00:41.

and appointments will be cancelled, as staff brace themselves for more

:00:42.:00:44.

problems as they attempt to log on to work computers

:00:45.:00:47.

on Monday mornings. The Observer leads

:00:48.:00:50.

on the election campaign. It says a multi-millionaire City

:00:51.:00:53.

worker has pledged to fund a campaign to try to oust almost 140

:00:54.:00:56.

pro-remain MPs to ensure there is no "backsliding on Brexit",

:00:57.:01:01.

as he puts it, after the election. The Sunday Times leads

:01:02.:01:06.

with Theresa May's pledge to change the law to help councils and housing

:01:07.:01:08.

associations build hundreds It also carries a picture

:01:09.:01:11.

of the singer Harry Styles, who says Brexit is the wrong

:01:12.:01:15.

direction for the country. The Daily Express says

:01:16.:01:22.

Theresa May is on course to win a record number of seats -

:01:23.:01:25.

398, giving her a majority of 147. Can we just clarify, before anybody

:01:26.:01:42.

gets cross with me, that my reprimand was out of love? Oh, I

:01:43.:01:55.

didn't even... I WAS actually fidgeting, so it was absolutely

:01:56.:02:03.

correct! The Daily Mail, this huge cyber attack yesterday, now, you

:02:04.:02:11.

were just saying before we came on air, it looks as if they were

:02:12.:02:18.

already on to this story? Yes, this has hit the NHS, and also

:02:19.:02:21.

organisations and companies worldwide. It looks as though there

:02:22.:02:25.

were lots of ransom demands at trusts last year. It is not clear

:02:26.:02:32.

whether any money was paid out. We know that one Californian health

:02:33.:02:37.

business DID pay out when its systems were attacked in this way.

:02:38.:02:42.

But this story is getting bigger by the moment, because it seems as

:02:43.:02:49.

though there was a failure to do anything about it in a timely

:02:50.:02:53.

fashion. And the briefings which fascinate me, one, no-one brings up

:02:54.:03:00.

the fact that Theresa May was Home Secretary, she has been Home

:03:01.:03:03.

Secretary since 2010, her job is cyber security. Now, in the real

:03:04.:03:10.

world, this would get her to stand up and admit that she was the chief,

:03:11.:03:15.

she was in charge when this happened, it is as though she has

:03:16.:03:19.

had nothing to do with this at all, her hands are completely clean. In

:03:20.:03:23.

the old days, it was a resigning issue. But nobody has come up and

:03:24.:03:27.

said, this person was in charge of this. That's important. The second

:03:28.:03:33.

thing, is that what we also don't talk about, than the NHS is probably

:03:34.:03:39.

number two, maybe number three, biggest organisation on earth. This

:03:40.:03:45.

is a massive, massive failure. And for people to be running around

:03:46.:03:50.

clutching their pearls and saying, this person... No, this is something

:03:51.:03:56.

somebody needs to stand up to and take personal responsibility. The

:03:57.:04:00.

decision to cancel the contract to patch up the systems, that seems

:04:01.:04:04.

strange, because it seems there were no plans to replace this particular

:04:05.:04:09.

software, and... Once it stops being supported. So, but is something we

:04:10.:04:15.

need to have clarified. But I still want to say, this is an election

:04:16.:04:21.

cycle, the person who wants to be the Prime Minister was responsible

:04:22.:04:26.

for our cyber security, she should say something about it in that

:04:27.:04:32.

capacity. That's what she should do. Also, the Prime Minister chose Amber

:04:33.:04:38.

Rudd and she kept on the person who is running the NHS as well. She is

:04:39.:04:43.

responsible to us, we need to hear from her. It is the most

:04:44.:04:47.

extraordinary story, that this by found the domain name which

:04:48.:04:50.

controlled all of this installed in the system by the hackers, so that

:04:51.:04:54.

they could stop the hacking. Amazing that they found it. It is barely

:04:55.:05:03.

believable. Again, that's why Theresa May needs to say something

:05:04.:05:06.

to us. Let's look at the Sunday Times on this story. It is therefore

:05:07.:05:15.

you on juju, if you want to learn how to develop one somewhere. This

:05:16.:05:19.

is the kind of video which Youtube can get into bother about, isn't it?

:05:20.:05:26.

If the Sunday Times can find it, why could you chew not find it? ?

:05:27.:05:37.

Presumably quite easily. With a leak to a site where it can be bought for

:05:38.:05:43.

$20. There is an old mathematical axioms which says that no system can

:05:44.:05:48.

be both consistent and complete. So, the minute that you make something

:05:49.:05:51.

like this, there is the key to breaking it down. I have to go back

:05:52.:05:57.

to Theresa May... No, it is important! You have to be vigilant,

:05:58.:06:03.

there has to be vigilant. It is not possible to catch up with all of

:06:04.:06:09.

this. But won't she say that the NHS has many, many IT specialists who

:06:10.:06:15.

are employed entirely to make sure that this system is secure, not her

:06:16.:06:18.

as the Home Secretary? Ultimately, somebody needed to report to

:06:19.:06:28.

somebody. We need to find out where the buck stopped, and instead of

:06:29.:06:34.

keystone cops running around sort of thing, where does the buck stop?

:06:35.:06:43.

This is able to lives involved. -- this is people's lives involved. I

:06:44.:06:47.

know this is a massive story but I want to move on. The Sunday

:06:48.:06:51.

Telegraph, Tories, don't ditch a little bit! That have been

:06:52.:06:55.

comparisons made between Theresa May and Margaret Thatcher, but this is

:06:56.:06:59.

suggesting that Theresa May is moving too far away from a little

:07:00.:07:03.

bit's economic principles... I know you won't agree! I don't, actually,

:07:04.:07:08.

I don't even understand what that is! I think this is just the Sunday

:07:09.:07:13.

Telegraph being a Thatcherite paper, to be honest. But it is interesting,

:07:14.:07:18.

there is a battle for the soul of what it is to be a Tory, is it to be

:07:19.:07:24.

a free marketeer or is it to be a person who intervenes like with the

:07:25.:07:28.

energy cap come in the free market? And capping executive pay as well.

:07:29.:07:35.

So, I would have liked to have read more about this story. There has

:07:36.:07:38.

been a battle since 2010, when David Cameron decided the Tory party was

:07:39.:07:44.

going to be a bit of this, a bit of that, a little bit of that. I think

:07:45.:07:48.

what the Sunday Telegraph is doing is to remind the Conservative Party

:07:49.:07:52.

that there are core principles and ideas. You can't take Labour ideas,

:07:53.:07:56.

which they do at every election, which is what they are doing now,

:07:57.:08:01.

and graft them into the Conservative Party. They are asking, what is the

:08:02.:08:06.

Conservative Party? As they are a asking in America, what is the

:08:07.:08:12.

Republican Party? I think there is this new breed, the

:08:13.:08:17.

twentysomethings, who are supposed to be going in behind Mrs May. So

:08:18.:08:21.

maybe these are the kind of policies which are kind of slightly socialist

:08:22.:08:25.

which Mrs May feels will appeal to that group of voters, who may never

:08:26.:08:28.

have voted before. But I do think there is a core question being

:08:29.:08:33.

asked, and it's always a question which the Conservative Party needs

:08:34.:08:37.

to ask, it is probably why Brexit is happening and everything else, what

:08:38.:08:41.

exactly are they, other than a vote winning machine? It works, though.

:08:42.:08:48.

Well... We do know it works, but I think the Sunday Telegraph is asking

:08:49.:08:52.

a core question, what are you? Let's go back to the Sunday Times. Me

:08:53.:08:57.

pledges council has revolution. Well, there you go.

:08:58.:09:11.

Finally, housing, rising to the top of the agenda. Run it is entirely my

:09:12.:09:20.

fault, I am confusing you. Just quickly, this prediction that there

:09:21.:09:25.

is going to be a most enormous victory. Landslide victory, greater

:09:26.:09:34.

than any other. Than any, ever, on earth. We know that we are in a

:09:35.:09:40.

crazy time, Emmanuel Macron is a black swan, nobody knows where he

:09:41.:09:42.

came from. Donald Trump, who would have thought it? Now, Theresa May,

:09:43.:09:51.

landslide? We shouldn't trust anything, we don't know. Lord

:09:52.:09:55.

Ashcroft in the week, similar suggestions. Tom Watson is very,

:09:56.:09:59.

very frightened of the size of the Tory victory, and may not be as

:10:00.:10:03.

great as this but you might be surprised. 40-50 seat smacks. There

:10:04.:10:12.

you go. Sunday Times, for real this time... May pledges council has

:10:13.:10:20.

revolution to Labour voters. It is extraordinary, the private rented

:10:21.:10:24.

sector is now much, much bigger than council housing. Nobody has built

:10:25.:10:31.

any council houses, and Mrs May says she's going to Vilbrim. And who

:10:32.:10:38.

didn't do that? You see... Who sold them off? Yes, but also, the

:10:39.:10:42.

Conservative Party has not done a lot in this direction. They have run

:10:43.:10:46.

the country for the last seven years. Suddenly now, they're going

:10:47.:10:50.

to do this. But the Labour government didn't build, either, did

:10:51.:10:56.

they? They have all been doing it, but the fact is, are we supposed to

:10:57.:11:00.

believe this? Let's give 30 seconds to a man in a red suit. Harry

:11:01.:11:05.

Styles, Brexit is the wrong direction. For those not familiar,

:11:06.:11:14.

he was part of One Direction. Why doesn't he like Brexit? He does not

:11:15.:11:21.

think it is our direction in which he would like to be going. But it is

:11:22.:11:24.

very interesting, the new positioning of Harry Styles with a

:11:25.:11:30.

slight edge, wearing that suit. The manufactured pop star is becoming a

:11:31.:11:35.

man with a voice of his own. It is his generation as well, my caper,

:11:36.:11:41.

the New European, was very happy to hear this from Harry Styles. He

:11:42.:11:46.

could be on your front page. Let's look at the Observer. Speaking of

:11:47.:11:53.

Brexit, millionaire Brexit donor, he is Hosking, he wants no backsliding

:11:54.:12:00.

on Brexit. I write about quite a lot of this, and I am not really

:12:01.:12:04.

familiar with this name. And also, how you can really turn people

:12:05.:12:10.

against Remain MPs in cities like London, where people were largely

:12:11.:12:16.

saying Remain. There's always these next Luther Tykes who emerge... And

:12:17.:12:25.

they come out of the woodwork and say, we have got tonnes of money and

:12:26.:12:30.

we are going to make this happen. I think people are smarter than that.

:12:31.:12:33.

But there has been a move to raise money to make sure that there are

:12:34.:12:40.

pro-Remain candidates? This is going to be... Well, Mrs May has called

:12:41.:12:46.

this a Brexit election, she said she needs a strong hand. But I think

:12:47.:12:57.

these are just Lex Luther types. It is more about winning over the

:12:58.:13:02.

Labour voters. So, that is not how to do the papers, if you're

:13:03.:13:07.

presenting it! Thank you so much! Fiona, thank you. Coming up next,

:13:08.:13:14.
