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

at The Independent, and the author and broadcaster,
We only have ten minutes, so we better be quick.
The Telegraph leads with the ongoing Brexit talks, saying British
tourists would be guaranteed free health treatment in the EU under
Brexit negotiations also dominate the front page of the Times,
saying thousands of European criminals could face deportation
The i features a picture of workers removing cladding from a high-rise
building with the headline '100 % unsafe'.
The FT focusses on the Italian banking system, saying the country
has set aside billions of euros worth of taxpayers money
'Shocking Scale of Migrant Problem' is the headline for the Daily
The Guardian leads with yesterday's cyber attack on parliamentarians,
saying the Russian government is suspected of being involved.
The Daily Mirror front page also focuses on the concerns over tower
block safety saying fury in mounting after all cladding
tested so far fails to meet standards.
And the Daily Mail says Labour's Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has
been accused of exploiting the Grenfell tower tragedy
after saying the victims were 'murdered by political
Some Brexit issues to start with. Foreign criminals to be thrown out
after Brexit? Quite a lot of them, it seems, are waiting to depart
these shores? Yes, according to the Times, there are thought to be about
13,000 foreign criminals in Britain. There are thousands who have served
sentences and are waiting for deportation. In 2014, only 44
criminals were repatriate it. We obviously have a larger number of
6000 people waiting to be deported, but only 44 people actually being
deported in a recent example. This does not seem like the biggest part
of the Brexit negotiations, I would say. I do think that 13,000 foreign
offenders is quite a lot, relative to the number of EU nationals
waiting to find out about their potential future. It is quite a
small number of people. It does affect our rules about deciding who
gets to coming in the first place? Most people claim they should be
doing more to gig at foreign criminals. I don't know whether the
viewers can see, the headline here, as you are saying, the big issue is
not foreign criminals. It is that tomorrow, the government has to
produce detailed plans for the right of EU citizens after rape Grexit and
securing the rights of -- after Brexit, and securing the rights of
UK citizens inside the EU. Before they do that they will not be able
to get stuck into the trade talks, which they are desperate to do. The
Telegraph, government facing ?600 million after tax to flats. Given
the scale they have got to carry out, it is not surprising -- checks.
We don't know how many of the 600 towers that are suspected of having
some of that cladding are going to come back and failed the tests. 60
have failed so far, so this ?600 million figure is an extrapolation
of ?1 million that is needed terrific the cladding. Even if it is
600 million, I actually think it is a very small sum next to what the
government is really going to have to spend if they are going to change
housing policies. The Prime Minister said last Thursday that she
recognised that the country had not done enough for people in social
housing. If she means that, the government should end this loss of
social housing. They need to pay for other aspects of the housing policy.
They will end a ban on social housing building which is
effectively in place at the moment. Any rental housing that is supposed
to be a affordable is not affordable, social rent is going to
cost a lot more money. If she means for that sort of change, then at the
end of the process, ?600 million is going to be a very small amount.
Elliptical fallout from some comments after the great bell tower
fire. -- Grenfell tower. He had a rant in Glastonbury? He called it,
murdered by political decisions. I would say it is probably not a great
usage, slaughtered would have been another more accurate descriptor. It
is hard to suggest, I would suggest that the people who put up the
cladding, those who pay for it and find it off, they did so thinking,
hopefully people will die because of this. I am certain that did not
happen. So it is a very unfortunate turn of phrase. Obviously the Daily
Mail had a different idea. It is not the first time that politicians have
accused each other of capitalising on tragedies. John McDonald has made
a career out of saying outrageous things. He made a joke about a
fascinating Margaret Thatcher, P had a suggestion about combining the
bomb in the ballot. One of the interesting things about this
comment is that he referred to decisions made over many decades.
The Labour Party was in charge for 30 years in recent decades,
therefore if he is accusing politicians off in his words,
murder, he is implicating his own side as well. Looking at the
Guardian, DUP deal to prop up the Theresa May government. We thought
it was all kind of done and dusted? But we still haven't got the detail?
Who knows? These leaks appear to be coming out of their talks on a very
regular basis. Downing Street seem to think that the DUP are
responsible, perhaps that has held things up. Given that you have
people like Chris Patten appearing on these programmes today, saying,
they will make us look like the nasty party, I think that probably
Theresa May's biggest problem is within her party. Do we know what
kind of special treatment, special favour is the DUP would have won for
northern Ireland? Every street in Belfast is going to be paid in gold
by the end of the year, or something close to that. It was rumoured to be
?2 billion for infrastructure, they have also talked about education.
Spending in Northern Ireland is already much higher than spending in
England. We will see John Major's phrase, cash for votes. It provides
Theresa May with some sort of solidity and a majority this week,
hopefully, from her point of view, other key votes in the future. Once
they've got that deal in place, it may be that they can get on with the
serious business of studying the other officers. The Guardian has a
story on a suspected Russian hack Lacy I thought it wasn't the
Russians this time? The headline says it is a Russian hacker, but
then there are sources who have said it appears to be state-sponsored. It
is notoriously difficult to attribute an instance to a specific
actor. You put Russia in the headline, everybody will associate
it with America. The Russians are strongly suspected of interfering,
as we well know. I don't know what they would had to find out by
hacking into that. Maybe they hope to find out who is standing for the
chairmanship of the rural food and pasture office. Yes, good question.
Finishing with the sun, can we please get onto the property news?
Look at the headline. There is an eight foot shark. I have set you a
task... I ask you to find out how common sharks of this size. It is a
blue shark, and they are seen as far north as Norway. 10- 20 million blue
sharks are killed every year. For shark fin soup. Overall, I think in
the last 500 years, they have been four reported cases of somebody
being eaten by a blue shark. We kill about 20 million per year.
Apparently this shark has been caught and injured with a harpoon.
No! If you are injured with a harpoon, but is not like a small...
I think the shark might have had a worse state than many of us did.
Putting nets in the sea? It didn't sound like they need to. Everybody
was swimming as fast as possible in the opposite direction, but she
would have been going, no! It's a blue shark. Wouldn't you, Natalie?
Did you do any research that I asked you to do? We should all be worrying
about the poor sharks. They are worried about whether it is going to
put people off, this summer. A very popular place. You sound like the
mayor of Amity. That is all I'm going to say. We've got the wrapup
music. The's it for the papers. Natalie and Rob, a treat as always.
