With me are Rob Merrick, Deputy Political Editor


and the Broadcaster and Author, Natalie Haynes.


Tomorrow's front pages, starting with -


France's new president dominates the Financial Times' front page -


it says Emmanuel Macron will meet Angela Merkel tomorrow


but that he faces a raft of challenges.


The Eye says Theresa May is to make a pitch to Labour voters

1 million people off NHS waiting lists by 2020.


The Times has a report on last week's global cyber attack -


it says the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt was warned about


The Mirror warns that hackers could strike Britain again


with infected computers spreading a worm across networks.


But a different top story entirely for the Sun,


which reports that the moors murderer Ian Brady


The Guardian is aware we begin. Labour and Tory fighting to win


working-class votes in a range of different ways. It is not so easy to


separate who is saying what it was a lot of Conservative ideas could in


the past have come from Labour. The energy seems to have come from


Labour and not from a very long ago. This headline is exactly right,


going for the working-class votes and what the Tory see as potential


gain in Brexit voting areas. Theresa May and the whales, going to places


where Labour would not have made it worthwhile. This is a more centrist


position. Perhaps you will have the chance to take a year paid off work


so you will be able to support yourself for a year to look after an


infirm to relative. And you could come back and still have working


in the EU we had workers rights... in the EU we had workers rights...


It is interesting. We were supposed to take back control but EU laws are


of appeal to Theresa May when it comes to protecting employees. They


are an important part of the constituency that delivered Brexit


was a workers, workers who believed that perhaps by tackling immigration


and they were going to get a fairer shot in this country, rightly or Rob


Lee, and Theresa May is trying to keep that constituency together. --


wrongly. Not surprisingly, everybody thinks she will still be Prime


Minister on June nine. The Labour announcement is the extra money for


the NHS, taking a million patients the waiting list. This is like a


microcosm of the campaign. Labour saying we are going to spend


billions on this and that and they hope their radical manifesto will


win back voters and the Conservatives are not spending any


money and it is an eye-catching announcement to give somebody a year


off work to look after somebody. It is small-scale and it does not spend


very much money. There is the election, Labour spending money,


Tories not. Family illness and mental health is targeted by the


manifesto. It is significant. It is an important announcement. At the


moment if you have a sequel elderly relative you would be at the whim of


your employer but it fits in the pattern of more family friendly


policies from governments of all persuasions. Maternity and paternity


rights. I am not sure how many people will take advantage of this.


Theresa May would be delighted to get the front pages. Perhaps she got


it more for symbolism. It is a graph of Labour rather than because of the


substance of the announcement. Companies would be glad because it


could be potentially quite difficult to keep jobs open and to have to pay


people with these extra paid leave. Absolutely, anyone who works with


small companies know is that when somebody goes on maternity leave, no


one really covers for them and people scramble around trying to


cover their job. It is hard to see that many businesses would be


clamouring for this opportunity and therefore it is probably a good


thing to try and force their hands a little at the numbers, in the


Telegraph, 6 million people are caring for an infirm relative. Doing


more than 50 hours a week. If you were trying to fit that around a


full-time job, I am not sure how those people are still standing so


something has to happen. Experts told ministers of NHS hacking risks,


this is in The Times. Where is this morning coming from two Jeremy Hunt?


Patches... I imagine a lovely patched Taia, exactly what Lewis


Hamilton would want to be driving on. Dame Fiona told a cut, -- Dan


Fiona and this organisation. Given the NHS has been the focus for most


of us in this country, we have cared about that much more than what is


happening to German trains. And yet no sign of Jeremy Hunt. He was at


the corporate meeting. -- Cobra. Yet he has not been on screen, I have


not seen him anywhere and is that perhaps because the first question


would be you were told about this by the person employed by your


department to note is kind of thing and surely that is their job. He


cancelled the contract. They had a contract with Microsoft to continue


looking after these ageing NHS computers and it was cancelled and


this can only have added to the risk the computers face. Microsoft


president tonight saying we have warned EU in the past but we need to


seek government taking actions. Microsoft was a company in the first


place that produced a foolproof system and inevitably it has two


keep providing these updates. Jeremy Hunt not appearing it means that


Amber Read is fronting everything but it does not fill me with


reassurance. She does not seem to know the first thing about


computers. Use the right university essays by ten and I am no expert but


she talked about building a back door way in the security... And


outlook. Who knew! The National Security Agency did that and that is


how we ended up with the mess we are in. It is like having your grandad


explain modern music having her fronting this issue. LAUGHTER FT,


businesses around the world prepare for fresh cyber attacks. More


variation on the same ransom were released. -- now that people know


the rhesus there is a way out. Other people doing the work will be hoping


it is of a computer. Maybe we could have two days off! Seriously, who


might be to blame but we are waiting to see how serious it is tomorrow.


It is cold comfort to know there were a lot of big commercial


organisations caught out by this. So far 200 thousand computers, across


150 countries, according to the FT, have been affected but they reckon


1.3 million computer systems are still vulnerable. The numbers are


6.5 times not to panic anyone, sleep well, but for example when you open


your computer tomorrow, do it carefully and do not click on


anything you do not know. France, the youngest president, there he is,


at least in the air, a triumphant looking Emmanuel Macron promising


things like cultural and economic renaissance. I do not know what that


means, a cultural Renaissance. It is a week of the Cannes Film


Festival... Perhaps that is what he is aiming for. What I find


interesting about Macron's inauguration is how very Roman it


is. The good piece in The Guardian about this, they talk about the fact


that normally the president uses a limousine, a civilian limousine, but


he stood in an open top military vehicle. He is presenting himself as


a tough leader, he is 39, Young,... We are all feeling under achieved.


The glorious... Gladiator... He's not quite sure. The full Russell


Crowe is about to happen right there. A Roman display of power. You


cannot resist it. And... A quick trip to Berlin to see Angela Merkel.


Symbolism again in that. You cannot imagine a British Prime Minister


second day in office jetting off somewhere. To be honest, these are


the countries calling it the shots. He flies off to see the German


Chancellor and asks for help. We talked about the military aspect of


the parade today, France is still a country in a state of emergency,


hundreds of people killed by terrorists, and the economic crisis


as well and that is what he needs help with. Promising EU reform... Is


not named what that is yet... Integration probably. He wants


Germany to bail out front effectively. Fiscal unity as well as


political unity and that is something that, of course, even if


we are not leaving the EU would have nothing to do with. I will finish


with the Telegraph and its story inside saying petrol cars may stop


selling within a decade, which is a funny way of announcing it. May not


be sold, I think it means. This is a suggestion from Stanford university


and an economist says we will not be buying petrol and diesel cars. That


will be putting the cat amongst the Pigeon.


It is an intriguing thought because we are talking so much about air


quality. One of the neighbours has talked about a problem with house


prices, in which more built-up or polluted areas are finding it harder


to sell properties. So we do care more than we ever have about air


quality, although we have for a significant amount of time. This is


a question about that. How many clouds we wanted the streets? How


fast we wanted to be going? Do we value our ability to drop from point


to another over the ability of children to play in the street


without choking to death. I'm sure that you have some into ad, but that


is it for the Papers. Or the front pages on the website. You can read a


detailed review there. Just visit our website, bbc.co.uk/papers. This


will also be up on iPlayer. How many times can I say the word papers?


Please buy one. Thank you both for joining me tonight. Come out next,
