An oil tanker that crashed in Pakistan's Punjab province has

:00:00.:00:00.

left at least 150 people dead, most of whom were collecting leaking

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:21.

With me are are Rob Merrick, the deputy political editor

:00:22.:00:25.

at The Independent, and the author and broadcaster,

:00:26.:00:27.

We only have ten minutes, so we better be quick.

:00:28.:00:39.

The Telegraph leads with the ongoing Brexit talks, saying British

:00:40.:00:42.

tourists would be guaranteed free health treatment in the EU under

:00:43.:00:45.

Brexit negotiations also dominate the front page of the Times,

:00:46.:00:48.

saying thousands of European criminals could face deportation

:00:49.:00:50.

The i features a picture of workers removing cladding from a high-rise

:00:51.:00:55.

building with the headline '100 % unsafe'.

:00:56.:00:57.

The FT focusses on the Italian banking system, saying the country

:00:58.:01:00.

has set aside billions of euros worth of taxpayers money

:01:01.:01:03.

'Shocking Scale of Migrant Problem' is the headline for the Daily

:01:04.:01:07.

The Guardian leads with yesterday's cyber attack on parliamentarians,

:01:08.:01:09.

saying the Russian government is suspected of being involved.

:01:10.:01:14.

The Daily Mirror front page also focuses on the concerns over tower

:01:15.:01:18.

block safety saying fury in mounting after all cladding

:01:19.:01:20.

tested so far fails to meet standards.

:01:21.:01:22.

And the Daily Mail says Labour's Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has

:01:23.:01:25.

been accused of exploiting the Grenfell tower tragedy

:01:26.:01:27.

after saying the victims were 'murdered by political

:01:28.:01:29.

Some Brexit issues to start with. Foreign criminals to be thrown out

:01:30.:01:41.

after Brexit? Quite a lot of them, it seems, are waiting to depart

:01:42.:01:47.

these shores? Yes, according to the Times, there are thought to be about

:01:48.:01:55.

13,000 foreign criminals in Britain. There are thousands who have served

:01:56.:02:00.

sentences and are waiting for deportation. In 2014, only 44

:02:01.:02:08.

criminals were repatriate it. We obviously have a larger number of

:02:09.:02:13.

6000 people waiting to be deported, but only 44 people actually being

:02:14.:02:18.

deported in a recent example. This does not seem like the biggest part

:02:19.:02:22.

of the Brexit negotiations, I would say. I do think that 13,000 foreign

:02:23.:02:34.

offenders is quite a lot, relative to the number of EU nationals

:02:35.:02:40.

waiting to find out about their potential future. It is quite a

:02:41.:02:48.

small number of people. It does affect our rules about deciding who

:02:49.:02:52.

gets to coming in the first place? Most people claim they should be

:02:53.:02:58.

doing more to gig at foreign criminals. I don't know whether the

:02:59.:03:11.

viewers can see, the headline here, as you are saying, the big issue is

:03:12.:03:15.

not foreign criminals. It is that tomorrow, the government has to

:03:16.:03:21.

produce detailed plans for the right of EU citizens after rape Grexit and

:03:22.:03:32.

securing the rights of -- after Brexit, and securing the rights of

:03:33.:03:39.

UK citizens inside the EU. Before they do that they will not be able

:03:40.:03:46.

to get stuck into the trade talks, which they are desperate to do. The

:03:47.:03:56.

Telegraph, government facing ?600 million after tax to flats. Given

:03:57.:04:00.

the scale they have got to carry out, it is not surprising -- checks.

:04:01.:04:08.

We don't know how many of the 600 towers that are suspected of having

:04:09.:04:13.

some of that cladding are going to come back and failed the tests. 60

:04:14.:04:19.

have failed so far, so this ?600 million figure is an extrapolation

:04:20.:04:28.

of ?1 million that is needed terrific the cladding. Even if it is

:04:29.:04:33.

600 million, I actually think it is a very small sum next to what the

:04:34.:04:37.

government is really going to have to spend if they are going to change

:04:38.:04:40.

housing policies. The Prime Minister said last Thursday that she

:04:41.:04:44.

recognised that the country had not done enough for people in social

:04:45.:04:49.

housing. If she means that, the government should end this loss of

:04:50.:04:55.

social housing. They need to pay for other aspects of the housing policy.

:04:56.:05:00.

They will end a ban on social housing building which is

:05:01.:05:03.

effectively in place at the moment. Any rental housing that is supposed

:05:04.:05:08.

to be a affordable is not affordable, social rent is going to

:05:09.:05:12.

cost a lot more money. If she means for that sort of change, then at the

:05:13.:05:18.

end of the process, ?600 million is going to be a very small amount.

:05:19.:05:21.

Elliptical fallout from some comments after the great bell tower

:05:22.:05:37.

fire. -- Grenfell tower. He had a rant in Glastonbury? He called it,

:05:38.:05:42.

murdered by political decisions. I would say it is probably not a great

:05:43.:05:47.

usage, slaughtered would have been another more accurate descriptor. It

:05:48.:05:56.

is hard to suggest, I would suggest that the people who put up the

:05:57.:06:00.

cladding, those who pay for it and find it off, they did so thinking,

:06:01.:06:07.

hopefully people will die because of this. I am certain that did not

:06:08.:06:11.

happen. So it is a very unfortunate turn of phrase. Obviously the Daily

:06:12.:06:18.

Mail had a different idea. It is not the first time that politicians have

:06:19.:06:21.

accused each other of capitalising on tragedies. John McDonald has made

:06:22.:06:27.

a career out of saying outrageous things. He made a joke about a

:06:28.:06:33.

fascinating Margaret Thatcher, P had a suggestion about combining the

:06:34.:06:40.

bomb in the ballot. One of the interesting things about this

:06:41.:06:43.

comment is that he referred to decisions made over many decades.

:06:44.:06:49.

The Labour Party was in charge for 30 years in recent decades,

:06:50.:06:53.

therefore if he is accusing politicians off in his words,

:06:54.:06:57.

murder, he is implicating his own side as well. Looking at the

:06:58.:07:05.

Guardian, DUP deal to prop up the Theresa May government. We thought

:07:06.:07:09.

it was all kind of done and dusted? But we still haven't got the detail?

:07:10.:07:18.

Who knows? These leaks appear to be coming out of their talks on a very

:07:19.:07:22.

regular basis. Downing Street seem to think that the DUP are

:07:23.:07:26.

responsible, perhaps that has held things up. Given that you have

:07:27.:07:30.

people like Chris Patten appearing on these programmes today, saying,

:07:31.:07:35.

they will make us look like the nasty party, I think that probably

:07:36.:07:39.

Theresa May's biggest problem is within her party. Do we know what

:07:40.:07:45.

kind of special treatment, special favour is the DUP would have won for

:07:46.:07:50.

northern Ireland? Every street in Belfast is going to be paid in gold

:07:51.:07:55.

by the end of the year, or something close to that. It was rumoured to be

:07:56.:08:00.

?2 billion for infrastructure, they have also talked about education.

:08:01.:08:04.

Spending in Northern Ireland is already much higher than spending in

:08:05.:08:09.

England. We will see John Major's phrase, cash for votes. It provides

:08:10.:08:15.

Theresa May with some sort of solidity and a majority this week,

:08:16.:08:21.

hopefully, from her point of view, other key votes in the future. Once

:08:22.:08:27.

they've got that deal in place, it may be that they can get on with the

:08:28.:08:33.

serious business of studying the other officers. The Guardian has a

:08:34.:08:45.

story on a suspected Russian hack Lacy I thought it wasn't the

:08:46.:08:50.

Russians this time? The headline says it is a Russian hacker, but

:08:51.:08:55.

then there are sources who have said it appears to be state-sponsored. It

:08:56.:08:58.

is notoriously difficult to attribute an instance to a specific

:08:59.:09:06.

actor. You put Russia in the headline, everybody will associate

:09:07.:09:10.

it with America. The Russians are strongly suspected of interfering,

:09:11.:09:17.

as we well know. I don't know what they would had to find out by

:09:18.:09:25.

hacking into that. Maybe they hope to find out who is standing for the

:09:26.:09:36.

chairmanship of the rural food and pasture office. Yes, good question.

:09:37.:09:42.

Finishing with the sun, can we please get onto the property news?

:09:43.:09:50.

Look at the headline. There is an eight foot shark. I have set you a

:09:51.:09:58.

task... I ask you to find out how common sharks of this size. It is a

:09:59.:10:06.

blue shark, and they are seen as far north as Norway. 10- 20 million blue

:10:07.:10:14.

sharks are killed every year. For shark fin soup. Overall, I think in

:10:15.:10:20.

the last 500 years, they have been four reported cases of somebody

:10:21.:10:27.

being eaten by a blue shark. We kill about 20 million per year.

:10:28.:10:32.

Apparently this shark has been caught and injured with a harpoon.

:10:33.:10:40.

No! If you are injured with a harpoon, but is not like a small...

:10:41.:10:52.

I think the shark might have had a worse state than many of us did.

:10:53.:10:58.

Putting nets in the sea? It didn't sound like they need to. Everybody

:10:59.:11:05.

was swimming as fast as possible in the opposite direction, but she

:11:06.:11:08.

would have been going, no! It's a blue shark. Wouldn't you, Natalie?

:11:09.:11:15.

Did you do any research that I asked you to do? We should all be worrying

:11:16.:11:22.

about the poor sharks. They are worried about whether it is going to

:11:23.:11:26.

put people off, this summer. A very popular place. You sound like the

:11:27.:11:32.

mayor of Amity. That is all I'm going to say. We've got the wrapup

:11:33.:11:41.

music. The's it for the papers. Natalie and Rob, a treat as always.
