We'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment.

:00:09.:00:14.

The head of Europol, the EU's law-enforcement agency,

:00:15.:00:20.

has warned that the start of the week could reveal

:00:21.:00:23.

more victims of this weekend's global cyberattack.

:00:24.:00:26.

The largest nursing union, the Royal College of Nursing,

:00:27.:00:28.

will stage a "summer of protest" over the Government's

:00:29.:00:31.

The new French President Emmanuel Macron has been sworn

:00:32.:00:36.

In his inaugural address, he said the country was on the verge

:00:37.:00:42.

Labour has pledged a Robin Hood tax on financial transactions to raise

:00:43.:00:57.

billions for public services if elected. The Conservatives have

:00:58.:01:04.

criticised it as a total shambles. It goes to the magnificent seven

:01:05.:01:06.

Lancashire. A winning night for happy Valley at

:01:07.:01:11.

the BAFTAs, at one best drama and its star one the lead actress award.

:01:12.:01:24.

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

:01:25.:01:27.

With me are Rob Merrick, deputy political editor at The Independent,

:01:28.:01:33.

and the broadcaster and author Natalie Haynes.

:01:34.:01:38.

The i says the Prime Minister is to make a pitch to Labour voters

:01:39.:01:44.

by boosting the living wage and guaranteeing EU labour laws.

:01:45.:01:47.

The Telegraph reports that the Conservatives' workplace

:01:48.:01:50.

promises will include a legal right to take time off work

:01:51.:01:53.

A similar lead on workers' rights for the Express.

:01:54.:02:01.

The Daily Mail says it will be the biggest ever expansion of workers'

:02:02.:02:07.

rights. A similar lead on workers'

:02:08.:02:09.

rights for the Express. They call Mrs May's

:02:10.:02:12.

promises "revolutionary". It says they are battling for

:02:13.:02:22.

working-class votes, and Jeremy Corbyn will take a million people of

:02:23.:02:27.

NHS waiting lists by 2020. The Times has the same top story on

:02:28.:02:33.

the Prime Minister, and a report on the global cyber attack. It says

:02:34.:02:37.

Jeremy Hunt was warned about poor NHS cybersecurity last summer.

:02:38.:02:39.

The Metro has the latest on last week's global cyberattack.

:02:40.:02:42.

It has a warning for people returning to work to

:02:43.:02:44.

The Sun reports that Ian Brady is close to death.

:02:45.:02:58.

Thankfully, you will be doing most of the talking! Let's start with the

:02:59.:03:06.

election campaign, and the Telegraph, workers get leave to care

:03:07.:03:10.

for elderly, the Conservative manifesto to boost employees' right

:03:11.:03:15.

and tackle the social care crisis. An acceptance that there are so many

:03:16.:03:20.

people in the country who do have caring responsibilities and often

:03:21.:03:22.

find it difficult to work while doing it. This is the latest attempt

:03:23.:03:27.

by the Prime Minister to march on to Labour turf, we have had energy

:03:28.:03:31.

prices, help with housing, and a protection of workers' rights. Part

:03:32.:03:36.

of the announcement is to protect the rights that workers have,

:03:37.:03:41.

because we are members of the EU, that they will survive. But the

:03:42.:03:45.

Telegraph has gone with the aspect of the package that refers to caring

:03:46.:03:54.

for relatives. They think that is the bit that will appeal most to

:03:55.:03:59.

their readers. Part of the package will be something along the lines of

:04:00.:04:03.

maternity rights, rated power for workers to ask for time off to care

:04:04.:04:08.

for relatives. An important aspect is that people will not be paid. It

:04:09.:04:13.

says here that there will be no payment. The first thing you think

:04:14.:04:19.

is, how much help will it be for the average person who may not be edited

:04:20.:04:23.

take time off, however sick their relative is? Their job would be held

:04:24.:04:27.

open for them, and some of these measures will have a cost to

:04:28.:04:31.

employers. That is true, although it is difficult to imagine what it

:04:32.:04:37.

would be like if you were at a point in your life when you had one or

:04:38.:04:43.

more elderly parents and you had to guess at what point they had less

:04:44.:04:47.

than a year left to go, because presumably if you only have this

:04:48.:04:52.

option for a year and your infant parent lasts for 18 months, at no

:04:53.:04:57.

point really want to have to say that the list they are, I have to go

:04:58.:05:02.

to work now. It does not sound like an enviable position for the 6

:05:03.:05:08.

million people, the Telegraph says, who act as unpaid carers, a third

:05:09.:05:12.

spend more than 50 hours a week looking after their loved ones, more

:05:13.:05:17.

than a full-time job. I don't see how you could possibly be expected

:05:18.:05:21.

to make those decisions. It is a start, but it is not much. But it

:05:22.:05:25.

pales into insignificance prepared with the statue right of two weeks

:05:26.:05:31.

off for paid child bereavement leave, which is how long it would

:05:32.:05:37.

not take to get over losing a child. It is a start, it is more than

:05:38.:05:41.

hammer the people -- I wonder how hammer the people -- I wonder how

:05:42.:05:50.

many people will take advantage of it if they are not going to get

:05:51.:05:54.

paid, but it is a not in the right direction. Other papers will look at

:05:55.:05:58.

workers' rights being protected as we leave the EU. Workers offered new

:05:59.:06:08.

deal by Tories, how new is this? Not new at all, even the Conservatives

:06:09.:06:10.

might be surprised at how much coverage they have got on the front

:06:11.:06:15.

pages with the announcement, the cost of Prime Minister said it

:06:16.:06:18.

before she became Prime Minister. People do not pay attention, you

:06:19.:06:24.

have! That is why you are here! You have been training for this! It is

:06:25.:06:30.

significant. One of the things that many Conservatives would want to do

:06:31.:06:35.

when we leave is to embark on the race to the bottom and ripped up

:06:36.:06:40.

workers' rights, and here is the Prime Minister taking a different

:06:41.:06:43.

stance, they will be protected. The working time directive is something

:06:44.:06:49.

that some Conservatives have spoken out about before, and it alleged

:06:50.:06:53.

effect on behalf of service, the right to ask for a limited number of

:06:54.:06:57.

hours. Another thing somebody might say is that Theresa May's Government

:06:58.:07:05.

impacted on trade unions' ability to strike. The rights for workers do

:07:06.:07:15.

not seem to extend to trade union rights in terms of strikes. But

:07:16.:07:19.

taking back our own laws, but not the EEC rules over Labour rights,

:07:20.:07:26.

they are quite good, it would appear. It is interesting, having

:07:27.:07:31.

complained. Blog about the burden of EU legislation under which we have

:07:32.:07:35.

been toiling, it turns out we would like some of it to stay so that

:07:36.:07:39.

people can have the exact same rights that they had before. What is

:07:40.:07:46.

interesting from our perspective, I have not had a job since the 1990s,

:07:47.:07:52.

so I cannot imagine what it is like having sick leave or holiday pay or

:07:53.:07:57.

anything, and there are huge buzz of people like me who are on the gig

:07:58.:08:01.

economy, as I believe it is described, and there is a kid there

:08:02.:08:05.

might be more right coming through for those of us who are freelance,

:08:06.:08:09.

who work from home, which would be interesting, because we have never

:08:10.:08:12.

had such a thing, and we cannot envisage it. He did not arrive

:08:13.:08:17.

tonight having delivered pizzas or anything like that! Heaven help me!

:08:18.:08:25.

That would be a proper job! I didn't think you get a free mopeds, you

:08:26.:08:28.

probably have to pay to rent the mopeds. There has been so much work

:08:29.:08:35.

done and thought given to when an employee is an employee rather than

:08:36.:08:42.

a freelancer. It is a huge issue. It is, and I choose to be freelance, I

:08:43.:08:48.

like my job, and I get to do it, and it is mostly fun, but a lot of

:08:49.:08:51.

people would prefer to have a proper job, with holiday pay and sick pay

:08:52.:08:55.

and maternity leave and all of those things, and they are not high

:08:56.:09:00.

profile things to want, they are quite ordinary. It is an interesting

:09:01.:09:09.

point that Reza May came in and said she wanted to be there for the just

:09:10.:09:13.

about managing families, but this looks like this is the thing that

:09:14.:09:17.

she is quite passionate about, and it is hard to tell when everybody

:09:18.:09:20.

just repeats the same words over and over again, but this might be what

:09:21.:09:26.

actual real-life Theresa May cares about, people with jobs. She is

:09:27.:09:33.

sticking to this, so how does Labour argued against it and say it is not

:09:34.:09:38.

a good idea? They will point out that the Conservative record in the

:09:39.:09:43.

past... They were cast out on the Bittman. The Tories will be

:09:44.:09:48.

committed to it. When we leave the EU and lose the trade arrangements

:09:49.:09:53.

that we currently have, Britain will have to find a cutting edge in a

:09:54.:09:57.

different way to compete, and many Conservatives will say to rip up

:09:58.:10:01.

regulation is the way to do that, to cut taxes and cut regulation, and

:10:02.:10:06.

she will protect the rights of workers, and I would imagine there

:10:07.:10:10.

are many Conservatives who are not happy about that. The Metro looking

:10:11.:10:15.

at the cyber attack and what might happen tomorrow. Crippling bug could

:10:16.:10:19.

be lurking in your inbox. This happened on Friday around the world.

:10:20.:10:25.

A lot of people will come into work and put their computers on tomorrow

:10:26.:10:28.

for the first time since it struck. And it would be best if they clicked

:10:29.:10:33.

on nothing at all, and they are completely sure of what it is. I

:10:34.:10:37.

cannot emphasise this enough, do not click on it. If it looks like a

:10:38.:10:42.

weird attachment or if it is from somebody you do not normally hear

:10:43.:10:46.

from, or you were not expecting a link, do not click on it. Big about

:10:47.:10:51.

it, take a capacity, you did not need to start at a run, and

:10:52.:10:56.

everybody slowdown, look hard at the things you touch before you touch

:10:57.:10:59.

them, because otherwise chaos will Bentiu. The problem with this is you

:11:00.:11:07.

do not even have to do anything for it to have infected the system. It

:11:08.:11:13.

could start all over again and rippling out tomorrow. Any decent

:11:14.:11:19.

employer should have sent in the IT people over the weekend to sort it

:11:20.:11:25.

out. We can't have that confidence. You would have thought they would

:11:26.:11:29.

have spent the weekend. The Microsoft president says it is a

:11:30.:11:31.

wake-up call for the Government of the world, because we have been

:11:32.:11:35.

telling them for a long time they need to use the patches. It is sweet

:11:36.:11:41.

of them to make it everyone else's fault, given it a specialty system,

:11:42.:11:46.

and they have retained the highbrow, they said, we did say it was

:11:47.:11:50.

rubbish! You did still sell it for cash money. Well done, then, for

:11:51.:11:56.

having the high ground. You read at the headline of the times, they

:11:57.:12:03.

reported as an election issue, because the Government seems bang to

:12:04.:12:07.

rights. They refused to pay Microsoft to continue to support

:12:08.:12:12.

Windows XP when they said they were no longer going to do that, there

:12:13.:12:19.

was a short-term contract, and that has increased the risk in the NHS,

:12:20.:12:23.

which was the thing that concerns most people. I have read that our

:12:24.:12:33.

Trident nuclear missiles work on Windows XP. Really? You can only

:12:34.:12:38.

hope they are being patched up better than the health service.

:12:39.:12:43.

Let's look at the Independent, a striking photograph on the front,

:12:44.:12:50.

French Renaissance. In that parade, as he was inaugurated at a lavish

:12:51.:12:56.

ceremony, promising a cultural and economic renaissance in France, but

:12:57.:13:03.

also wanting reform of the EU. He is off to see Angela Merkel. Two

:13:04.:13:09.

interesting aspect, jetting off to see Angela Merkel, and it emphasises

:13:10.:13:15.

the central bond in the EU that remains the German/ French axis. It

:13:16.:13:22.

is that axis that is about to be waged against us when these

:13:23.:13:26.

negotiations start. The other reminder that it is not all about

:13:27.:13:31.

Brexit, because when he is in Germany, he will ask for German

:13:32.:13:35.

help, because the German economy is stronger than the French economy, he

:13:36.:13:39.

wants Germany to find a way of bailing France out. That reminds us

:13:40.:13:44.

that it is not all about Brexit for other EU countries. Where will the

:13:45.:13:49.

reform come from, and how many members will want meaningful reform?

:13:50.:13:53.

David Cameron would have liked to have heard about that. I imagine he

:13:54.:13:58.

is sitting in his shed thinking, this sounds even if familiar,

:13:59.:14:02.

jotting down a few notes in his memoir. Shepherd's had. I am

:14:03.:14:12.

contracting that into shed. I think the chances of Angela Merkel folding

:14:13.:14:18.

and setting, yes, let's just have Germany bailed you out, don't worry,

:14:19.:14:22.

though problem, the pretty slender. The Germans have been the greatest

:14:23.:14:28.

winners of the Eurozone, and I doubt they are keen to go, let's share

:14:29.:14:36.

that are found, don't mind. What I find interesting in this picture is

:14:37.:14:40.

how much it reminds me of a Roman triumph. Look how high he is, I can

:14:41.:14:44.

not help that belief one of these men flanking him is whispering,

:14:45.:14:50.

remember you are mortal. The horses, the helmets, the plumes, I see that

:14:51.:14:56.

the motorbikes are not fully Roman, but it reminds me of imperial times.

:14:57.:15:01.

It looked spectacular. We talked about pomp and ceremony over here.

:15:02.:15:12.

We have a coach. With a cream in it. When the state opening happens, the

:15:13.:15:18.

Queen is practically coming on the bus, the carriage is being used for

:15:19.:15:24.

something else. What else have they got? Never mind. The Daily

:15:25.:15:33.

Telegraph, the absolutely fabulous, Joanna's a jolly good fellow.

:15:34.:15:39.

Marvellous that she has got a fellowship of BAFTA for all of her

:15:40.:15:43.

lifetime work. We celebrate how excellent she is as an actor and as

:15:44.:15:48.

a comic actor, and we do not celebrate how good she is at

:15:49.:15:51.

designing bridges. That is controversial to end on.

:15:52.:15:57.

We are back again at 11:30pm, and I am back with the main stories at

:15:58.:16:00.

11pm. Michel Faber's success has come

:16:01.:16:09.

with some long books,

:16:10.:16:13.
