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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are Miranda Green from the Financial Times

:00:19.:00:22.

and Christopher Hope, chief political correspondent

:00:23.:00:23.

The Metro leads with the Haute de la Garenne children's home,

:00:24.:00:34.

at the centre of a report into decades of child

:00:35.:00:37.

by calls for the Prime Minister to end the 1% pay cap

:00:38.:00:43.

are urging the Chancellor to abandon commitments to reduce corporation

:00:44.:00:51.

tax on order to fund an increase in public sector pay.

:00:52.:01:05.

cites a new report showing the impact of pay freezes

:01:06.:01:09.

government ministers that the UK should be prepared to work

:01:10.:01:16.

closely with EU regulators in order to protect our Pharmaceutical

:01:17.:01:19.

treatment based on DNA testing could help millions of patients.

:01:20.:01:24.

The Telegraph says that charities that

:01:25.:01:27.

pester donors for cash, face being fined up to ?25,000

:01:28.:01:30.

And the Express says a fresh heatwave

:01:31.:01:33.

will hit the UK this week - it's expected to rise to 32 degrees

:01:34.:01:36.

What a scorcher! Starting with the Metro, this is a dreadful story, the

:01:37.:01:49.

island of Jersey. Tear down the house of horrors, the picture of the

:01:50.:01:55.

Haut de la Garenne children's home, decades of abuse, a report several

:01:56.:02:01.

years in the making. The report is out now and they say that there are

:02:02.:02:05.

some children in Jersey who may still be at risk? That's right,

:02:06.:02:09.

extraordinary story and it is very difficult to read. This is 57 years

:02:10.:02:20.

of abuse and hundreds of cases. Although, as you rightly said, the

:02:21.:02:26.

chief minister of Jersey today, on receiving the report, apologised, it

:02:27.:02:33.

actually seems that one of the findings is that the lessons haven't

:02:34.:02:35.

been learnt even now and that there are children in Jersey, in the care

:02:36.:02:41.

of Jersey who are not being looked after properly and who are still

:02:42.:02:46.

very runaround or. Such a horrific story -- still very vulnerable. They

:02:47.:02:54.

are going with the story that the home should be raised to the ground

:02:55.:02:58.

but it seems it will take more than that to ensure that this is never

:02:59.:03:04.

repeated. Some things are absolutely horrendous and it isn't a story to

:03:05.:03:10.

be taken lightly. As you say, the enquiry has been years in the

:03:11.:03:13.

making. Sexual abuse, children were victimised, beaten, put in solitary

:03:14.:03:20.

confinement, separated from their friends. Absolutely dreadful. And

:03:21.:03:26.

this, the building on the front, Haut de la Garenne. The report says

:03:27.:03:32.

that, it talks about the Jersey way, I don't know if you have heard of

:03:33.:03:36.

it, it is a mindset where you are proud of the traditions and history

:03:37.:03:40.

of the island but wrapped up in that there is a sense that society closes

:03:41.:03:49.

ranks when there is controversy and the so-called Jersey way, the report

:03:50.:03:53.

explicitly says it may have been a contributing factor to people not

:03:54.:03:58.

coming forward and talking about it. So shocking and the examples,

:03:59.:04:06.

youngsters selling flowers in the street until they sell enough. They

:04:07.:04:14.

looked at 500 offences between 2007 and 2010, and that was just three

:04:15.:04:18.

years but it is many more years involved, so no surprise the paper

:04:19.:04:24.

is saying to tear it down. It is generations of abuse and no

:04:25.:04:31.

transparency. None at all. The Times, you have been tweeting about

:04:32.:04:34.

this, Christopher, this whole thing about scrapping the 1% pay cap. You

:04:35.:04:40.

can't understand how the Tories have got into this. They won the

:04:41.:04:46.

election, they didn't lose it, they won it and now this is the front

:04:47.:04:55.

page of the Times, scrap tax to -- scrap tax cuts to boost state paid.

:04:56.:05:04.

Briefly, I can't speak now! It is a strange row because the Tories were

:05:05.:05:08.

the biggest party, they are panicking about why Corbyn did so

:05:09.:05:13.

well and they think, OK, he offered money to public sector workers, so

:05:14.:05:17.

we'll do that as well. Tuition fees were a hit, so we will hint

:05:18.:05:21.

something about that. It was chaotic. It is baffling why they are

:05:22.:05:30.

bothering, they are getting no credit, we are five years from an

:05:31.:05:36.

election. Now you have these ministers bullying and hectoring

:05:37.:05:39.

Philip Hammond who is trying to control the bucket and hit the

:05:40.:05:47.

deficit target, by the next decade, so it is a bad luck. Looks like they

:05:48.:05:52.

have lost, they are having a nervous breakdown. It is complete disarray.

:05:53.:05:58.

As Lord Lamont said today, other Cabinet ministers are appearing to

:05:59.:06:02.

publicly gang up on the Chancellor. Even last week Philip Hammond was

:06:03.:06:06.

said to be angry that his budget in the Orton was being anticipated and

:06:07.:06:15.

promises were being given -- his budget in the autumn. There is quite

:06:16.:06:21.

a lot of detail speculation about what tax cuts he may be forced into

:06:22.:06:26.

reversing, ones that have been promised but not put into effect, to

:06:27.:06:29.

find extra money to pay public sector workers. It would get him out

:06:30.:06:34.

of a hole because he does not want to put taxes up, he does not want to

:06:35.:06:41.

borrow, he does not want to do that. This would get him out of a hole,

:06:42.:06:49.

maybe he is pushing the story! I think this story is so complicated

:06:50.:06:53.

already, let's not introduce any more! They have pledged to reduce

:06:54.:07:00.

Corporation Tax even further, from 19%, to 17% and a suggestion here

:07:01.:07:04.

that if they did not do that it is quite a lot of extra money for the

:07:05.:07:08.

public sector workers. There is a lot of anger, the cap on public

:07:09.:07:12.

sector workers when we are forced to congratulate them every couple of

:07:13.:07:15.

weeks when they sold a disaster, like a terrorist attack or a public

:07:16.:07:21.

tragedy like Grenfell Tower and then we aren't playing them. The Tory

:07:22.:07:25.

government should be trying to put more money back in the pockets of

:07:26.:07:29.

people who voted for it and dropping the threshold of 40%, even the lower

:07:30.:07:34.

rate, I think is the wrong answer. I also supposed to be the party of

:07:35.:07:38.

fiscal discipline so they have a real problem -- Bay supposed to be

:07:39.:07:45.

the park it full -- Bayard supposed to be the target. -- they are

:07:46.:07:49.

supposed to be the party. It was said that you cannot get rid

:07:50.:07:59.

of the 1% cap because they must be fiscally responsible and they still

:08:00.:08:05.

have a deficit of 80% of GDP, whatever. A lot. I said... He said,

:08:06.:08:17.

we must be fiscally disciplined and we must be sensible but I said, you

:08:18.:08:21.

have public sector workers, the argument is that they have taken a

:08:22.:08:26.

real terms cut in pay for the last one, six, seven years. Inflation is

:08:27.:08:31.

really going up. Things will be hitting people. He says he will not

:08:32.:08:40.

balance the books until 2025 and Ken Clarke said he did not think anyone

:08:41.:08:46.

was talking about a 1% cap until 2025. Who knows? You never know. The

:08:47.:08:53.

Financial Times, top ministers pushing to keep EU farming ties

:08:54.:09:00.

after Brexit. Interesting on two levels, it is more evidence of the

:09:01.:09:06.

weird Cabinet free for all. Any minister at the top of government

:09:07.:09:09.

seems to be making their pitch for public sympathy or manoeuvring. Why

:09:10.:09:14.

not, they can get away with it. There is no discipline within the

:09:15.:09:21.

Cabinet. Two ministers, Jeremy Hunt of health and Greg Clark Whiting a

:09:22.:09:26.

joint letter saying that they want to keep these very close ties with

:09:27.:09:30.

the EU over the drug industry, pharmaceuticals and health, which is

:09:31.:09:36.

very interesting because it is very important for NHS treatment, drugs

:09:37.:09:43.

coming on stream and having the regulatory structure allowing

:09:44.:09:47.

patients to get them as quickly as possible, but it is also important

:09:48.:09:51.

to the pharmaceutical industry. What is going to happen if every cabinet

:09:52.:09:56.

minister in their particular sector starts saying, OK, Brexit, fine but

:09:57.:10:05.

not my bit of business and industry? Why are the FT saying this, why not

:10:06.:10:11.

write a letter to the Cabinet minister, or David Davies? This is

:10:12.:10:15.

not business as usual. Wide are they pitching it at me instead of David

:10:16.:10:22.

Davies? It is lobbying in public. On every single issue. It says the

:10:23.:10:27.

letter has been passed by Downing Street but it is very odd. It again

:10:28.:10:34.

makes it looks as if the Prime Minister's authority isn't strong at

:10:35.:10:39.

the Cabinet level. The Daily Telegraph, charities facing fine for

:10:40.:10:51.

pestering. A lot of rows about this. On Thursday they are launching a new

:10:52.:10:58.

line where you can report any kind of... If you are being bombarded by

:10:59.:11:03.

marketing and text messages you can say stop and within 28 days if they

:11:04.:11:10.

don't stop, a fine by the information Commissioner. It is a

:11:11.:11:19.

stick to try and stop this and forcing them to improve. It is the

:11:20.:11:24.

elderly being affected. You can complain on behalf of a relation, a

:11:25.:11:33.

concerned son or daughter. The eye newspaper, -- the I paper,

:11:34.:11:39.

personalised cancer care based on genes. In an annual report there has

:11:40.:11:46.

been a call for a complete change to how we treat cancer patients,

:11:47.:11:50.

essentially saying we must bring it up to date and that means gene

:11:51.:11:56.

testing, DNA analysis for every person who presents to the NHS. This

:11:57.:12:02.

could improve care. At the moment, people can end up being sent around

:12:03.:12:05.

to several different specialists before a treatment plan is in effect

:12:06.:12:11.

and it may not be appropriate for that individual and their genetic

:12:12.:12:15.

make-up. She says, give everybody a test and then you know what you are

:12:16.:12:20.

targeting. It is the frontier of medical science and research and it

:12:21.:12:25.

would change the way that individual patients received their care. At the

:12:26.:12:36.

bottom of the I, the TV Guide, how to prevent terror... INAUDIBLE

:12:37.:12:43.

. That is the papers for you. The Times newspaper, memory lapses are

:12:44.:12:52.

good for your brain. One of the best stories in the paper. The best I've

:12:53.:12:59.

seen in many years! You must blame your evolved mechanisms for neural

:13:00.:13:06.

transience, our brains are saying that something isn't important,

:13:07.:13:11.

forget that. Why would I bother anyway? The important stuff stays

:13:12.:13:17.

in. More than that, it says that the brain deliberately decides to forget

:13:18.:13:21.

things that you don't need any more so you can deal with new Tjallingii

:13:22.:13:25.

information. And it is like not having enough bandwidth --

:13:26.:13:33.

challenging information. What I find odd is that I have total recall for

:13:34.:13:38.

music lyrics from the 1980s, which I don't actually need! I'm worried

:13:39.:13:43.

that they are blocking space. So when I forget the keys, my bus pass,

:13:44.:13:49.

whatever, it is actually a sign that my brain is clicking along at a

:13:50.:13:56.

cracking rate! I'm actually on the ball. It actually says it is a sign

:13:57.:14:02.

of intelligence. Those with superhuman intelligence need

:14:03.:14:06.

psychiatric case studies. I have been described as that. Helen and

:14:07.:14:13.

George, great to have you both. Good to see you both. Thank you. That's

:14:14.:14:22.

it for the papers. Thanks for watching, goodbye.

:14:23.:14:35.

A weather system moving into Northern Ireland, turning things

:14:36.:14:39.

wetter and the rain by

:14:40.:14:40.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
