Churchill in the drama about the wartime Prime Minister has been

:00:00.:00:00.

praised by critics. Mark Kermode brings us his thoughts about this

:00:00.:00:00.

and the other Cinema releases this week in The Film Review.

:00:00.:00:14.

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

correspondent Tom Bergin and Kate Devlin, political

correspondent at the Herald. Tomorrow's front pages,

starting with... The front page of the Times

:00:43.:00:44.

says that relief efforts at Grenfell Tower have

:00:45.:00:46.

descended into chaos, with reports of survivors

:00:47.:00:48.

being rehoused hundreds The Daily Mail has

:00:49.:00:50.

a photograph of the inside of one of the flats in the tower,

which it says show the victims of the devastation the fire

caused on its front page. on the Conservative Party

leadership, reporting that David Davis is emerging as a unity

candidate to become interim party on the Brexit talks due

:01:07.:01:09.

to start tomorrow, reporting that the Chancellor is urging

:01:10.:01:14.

a focus on business. The Guardian reports that

:01:15.:01:17.

European leaders fear the fragility of Theresa May's

:01:18.:01:19.

government makes it more likely Britain could crash out

:01:20.:01:22.

of the EU without a deal. The Independent also

:01:23.:01:24.

looks at Brexit, and a report which suggests that

:01:25.:01:26.

plans to cut immigration could have a double whammy

:01:27.:01:29.

effect on the economy. confidence is high

:01:30.:01:31.

as Brexit talks begin. Let's start with the Daily Mail, one

:01:32.:01:44.

of a number of papers that tonight is showing a photograph from inside

:01:45.:01:48.

the Grenfell tower after that devastating fire. Showing the sheer

:01:49.:01:55.

scale of destruction. From this one you can see more, it was once a

:01:56.:02:04.

person's home. All the internal walls have been destroyed, the

:02:05.:02:08.

furniture has been burned to ashes. Truly shocking pictures and even

:02:09.:02:14.

people like myself who have seen fatal fires elsewhere in the past,

:02:15.:02:19.

these are unusual, the share for city of the flames. It raises the

:02:20.:02:25.

question of what happened -- ferocity. The correspondent who

:02:26.:02:29.

wrote this story in the Daily Mail is the chief crime correspondent,

:02:30.:02:34.

there's the issue about the possible criminal investigation, it's a

:02:35.:02:38.

mystery as to why this happened so quickly. Some ideas are being put

:02:39.:02:41.

forward, I spent time this week trying to find out what happened and

:02:42.:02:45.

what the rules are with respect to housing, if some of the panels that

:02:46.:02:51.

have been reported were used in this tower, that could be why this

:02:52.:02:55.

happened in this way. It will be interesting to see how much we get

:02:56.:02:59.

on that as we move forward, the UK can take quite a while to establish

:03:00.:03:06.

faxed. The Times, same story, fire victims left in the lurch by relief

:03:07.:03:12.

effort problems. All sorts of issues, Kate. It does seem like it

:03:13.:03:17.

has taken a long time to get where we are. Today people being offered

:03:18.:03:26.

?10 to try to deal with even the day to day costs. This evening they are

:03:27.:03:34.

going to get ?500 in cash and another ?5,000 payable into bank

:03:35.:03:41.

accounts tomorrow. It seems like ministers at Number 10 are trying to

:03:42.:03:45.

play catch up on this despite days of bad headlines about how badly

:03:46.:03:53.

they have dealt with this situation. Specifically how badly Theresa May

:03:54.:03:57.

has dealt with the situation. Also the council has come in for

:03:58.:04:00.

criticism, the management company that was meant to be looking after

:04:01.:04:05.

this building. There are so many people with questions to answer.

:04:06.:04:09.

Absolutely. Councils should have disaster plans. Also the number of

:04:10.:04:12.

people really isn't that many, you're talking about 400 people,

:04:13.:04:17.

Jeremy Corbyn made the point of this happens every day at Heathrow,

:04:18.:04:20.

hundreds of people that aren't able to make flights and you could put up

:04:21.:04:25.

at hotels. It shouldn't have been such a horrible logistical class to

:04:26.:04:29.

look after the welfare of the people for this period of time but it seems

:04:30.:04:33.

that people aren't being taken care of an Theresa May has accepted that.

:04:34.:04:38.

The other paper looking at it is the Guardian, the picture of a little

:04:39.:04:42.

girl putting a candle amongst flowers to remember those who died.

:04:43.:04:44.

The headline says: This is just a figure to tide them

:04:45.:04:54.

over, ?5,000 when you've lost absolutely everything. Ministers

:04:55.:04:58.

making very clear that that amount can be increased depending on the

:04:59.:05:04.

costs that people suffer and the amount they would need, but this is

:05:05.:05:10.

an initial payment from the ?5 million emergency fund that they

:05:11.:05:14.

announced earlier in the week. I have to say, they are now having to

:05:15.:05:19.

explain more and more details about this emergency fund and it's because

:05:20.:05:22.

they're coming under so much pressure about how they're handling

:05:23.:05:28.

this. I was just reading in the Guardian that Gold command, a

:05:29.:05:31.

network that manages disasters, has had to take this on, the British Red

:05:32.:05:37.

Cross also being very instrumental in helping people? The FT reporting

:05:38.:05:41.

that other chief executives from other local authorities are becoming

:05:42.:05:47.

important and taking the lead away from the Kensington and is a local

:05:48.:05:51.

authority, which itself says it is doing all it can and it is active

:05:52.:05:56.

but it seems to be there is a bit of a vote of no-confidence in

:05:57.:06:02.

government officials. There's an interesting nugget in the Times

:06:03.:06:08.

front-page story, suggesting the local council spent ?50 million less

:06:09.:06:12.

than it took in on council housing last year. Questions about how much

:06:13.:06:16.

money they are collecting in rent and then spending on services for

:06:17.:06:20.

council houses. Let's stay with the Guardian:

:06:21.:06:24.

There isn't a majority, the one Theresa May was seeking in the snap

:06:25.:06:33.

election she called, they don't have the whip and they were hoping for.

:06:34.:06:37.

They don't. There's a couple of different ways you could look at

:06:38.:06:45.

this in cash whip hand. They are taking the open wound that Theresa

:06:46.:06:50.

May suffered -- whip hand. The conversation Jean-Claude Juncker had

:06:51.:06:53.

with Theresa May was leaked pretty much verbatim. Given that

:06:54.:06:58.

occasionally he has tried to poke fun at the UK's woes as well. I

:06:59.:07:03.

think there's also something more serious to this, which is it is in

:07:04.:07:11.

the EU's interest to get an agreeable deal. Perhaps not as

:07:12.:07:15.

agreeable as some Conservative ministers would like, but it's not

:07:16.:07:23.

without their interests in this as well. Were it to descend into chaos

:07:24.:07:27.

and to fall apart, that wouldn't be the best thing for France or Germany

:07:28.:07:33.

either. The Daily Express, Tom, has a much more optimistic look at it.

:07:34.:07:40.

Confidence high as talks begin, it says, it doesn't say who is

:07:41.:07:44.

confident. It's interesting, I was speaking to an exporter this week

:07:45.:07:48.

who told me he didn't think Britain had enough time to lay the car parks

:07:49.:07:53.

we would need around Dover as soon as Brexit comes, maybe it is a boost

:07:54.:07:58.

for road builders or car park builders, because as soon as customs

:07:59.:08:01.

clearance comes in it will take a while for lorries to get through. If

:08:02.:08:07.

we leave the customs union. Actually, yes, even if we leave...

:08:08.:08:11.

Even if we leave the Common Market we could still have customs

:08:12.:08:16.

clearance. One of the issues is there are a million small tiny

:08:17.:08:20.

details that lead to the correct functioning of the European Union,

:08:21.:08:24.

and the easy transit of millions of transactions every day. It's like

:08:25.:08:28.

the back of a hi-fi, we don't know how it works, we don't really want

:08:29.:08:32.

to know, but somehow all those wires are connected and it makes sound we

:08:33.:08:37.

quite like. Woe betide one of them coming loose. As soon as you rip

:08:38.:08:42.

them all apart then it may not work as well as you would like and you

:08:43.:08:45.

might not understand why but you won't get the sound you used to

:08:46.:08:51.

enjoy. Philip Hammond might not even have been Chancellor going into

:08:52.:08:55.

these talks had the election turned out differently, he is saying now,

:08:56.:09:00.

bear in mind, I wonder how he is feeling on the eve of this given

:09:01.:09:04.

that he is an ardent Remainer. He has to negotiate our withdrawal and

:09:05.:09:08.

he's worried about the economy. He is. It's interesting how he's

:09:09.:09:12.

playing his hands since the general election result. Affectively he is

:09:13.:09:19.

arguing for a soft Brexit without saying it, that we need to focus on

:09:20.:09:24.

the economy rather than focusing on immigration -- effectively. Even

:09:25.:09:28.

today saying about immigration saying there's no timescale for it

:09:29.:09:32.

and cutting immigration shouldn't come at the economy. Even the

:09:33.:09:39.

Treasury says radical cuts to immigration even without leaving the

:09:40.:09:43.

EU would hurt the economy in itself. I wonder whether the people

:09:44.:09:47.

negotiating it for us are of the same opinion about what Brexit

:09:48.:09:52.

should be. Hammond of course said that people didn't vote to make

:09:53.:09:55.

themselves poorer. The government, if you're negotiating the situation,

:09:56.:10:03.

you have conflicting aims. On the one hand people want to limit

:10:04.:10:06.

immigration... Basically people want all the upside and none of the

:10:07.:10:10.

downside, they want their cake and be able to eat it too. That's

:10:11.:10:15.

difficult if you have contradictory ambitions so they are in a

:10:16.:10:17.

commander. P2 of the Sun: It with his gloves on. Philip Hammond

:10:18.:10:30.

not being able to talk about a trade deal from the get go, which is what

:10:31.:10:35.

he wanted, the EU saying you have to wait until we've sorted the rest of

:10:36.:10:39.

it out. It's interesting, this is the narrative and framework we have

:10:40.:10:44.

seen the negotiation as. When you go to negotiate a house, I don't meet

:10:45.:10:51.

many people who say I got 50% of. Generally when you try to negotiate

:10:52.:10:54.

its around the margin and this is the case with trade deals. They are

:10:55.:10:58.

well-established, the parameters are limited in terms of movement. The

:10:59.:11:03.

idea we should see it as a big battle doesn't really make much

:11:04.:11:07.

sense. David Davis is on the front of the Telegraph whether he wants to

:11:08.:11:11.

be or not, being tipped to be interim Tory leader. Holder for wild

:11:12.:11:20.

things are tricky quiz blue indeed! Especially for the next two years --

:11:21.:11:25.

hold the fort while things are tricky quiz blue indeed! Just while

:11:26.:11:35.

you get Brexit sorted --? Indeed! He is pledging to go to Brussels

:11:36.:11:39.

tomorrow and returned with a deal like no other in history. That's in

:11:40.:11:48.

the Sun? It can be read in two ways, lots of things are historic, Rafa

:11:49.:11:53.

Nadal winning ten French opens is historic, but the Titanic was also

:11:54.:11:57.

historic. I'm surprised they have signed that one off. It's

:11:58.:12:04.

interesting where this story is coming from with David Davis and

:12:05.:12:08.

it's coming from, as it says in the Telegraph, it says he was tipped for

:12:09.:12:13.

the post by Boris Johnson, which I think tells you everything. He wants

:12:14.:12:18.

to be the permanent leader! Let's finish with P2 of the Daily Mail,

:12:19.:12:25.

Google plots let's on IS propaganda. Why are they doing it now, there's

:12:26.:12:29.

been pressure on them for months -- blitz. There's talk about new

:12:30.:12:35.

computer programmes that can help to spot difficult content, problematic

:12:36.:12:40.

content. Google and Facebook and some of the other social media

:12:41.:12:44.

platforms are being blamed for helping the radicalisation of

:12:45.:12:50.

certain young Muslims and others and they are under pressure to do

:12:51.:12:54.

something about it. The problem for the companies is they would rather

:12:55.:12:58.

not spend the money doing this. If they can do it like this that would

:12:59.:13:04.

be cheaper but the companies haven't been held to account for the

:13:05.:13:07.

material that has been disseminated on the platform and they are trying

:13:08.:13:13.

to fend it off. It is quite significant for them because it's a

:13:14.:13:16.

real threat to their business model, if they're going to be held

:13:17.:13:19.

accountable and they are being forced to put in place mechanisms to

:13:20.:13:24.

stop it it could hurt them financially significantly. Fair play

:13:25.:13:28.

to the Mail and the Times, who have been running a campaign on this, one

:13:29.:13:32.

thing they will do is prevent adverts from appearing on extremist

:13:33.:13:39.

material, they are making sure the people don't make any revenue from

:13:40.:13:43.

it, this is something they have been under pressure on for weeks and

:13:44.:13:47.

weeks but now effectively they are doing something about it.

:13:48.:13:49.

Don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online

:13:50.:13:52.

evening you can watch it later on BBC iPlayer

:13:53.:14:02.
