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

:00:18.:00:20.

With me are Laura Perrins, co-editor of the website

:00:21.:00:23.

The Conservative Woman, and Torcuil Crichton, Westminster

:00:24.:00:25.

Great see you both. Thanks for coming in.

:00:26.:00:32.

The Metro splashes that many graduates can expect to spend longer

:00:33.:00:39.

paying off their student debt than their mortgage with more

:00:40.:00:45.

than 75% failing to pay back the whole amount.

:00:46.:00:47.

The Guardian quotes a study claiming that students starting university

:00:48.:00:50.

this September will emerge with an average debt

:00:51.:00:51.

The Financial Times leads with takeover attempts by US firms

:00:52.:00:59.

of the British payment processing company Worldpay following Brexit.

:01:00.:01:05.

And the drop in the value of the pound.

:01:06.:01:09.

The Express quotes an investigation by the British Medical Journal that

:01:10.:01:12.

has found wait times for hip and knee operations have increased

:01:13.:01:14.

The Telegraph writes that Communities Secretary Sajid Javid

:01:15.:01:20.

is to force wealthy rural areas to build more homes in an attempt

:01:21.:01:23.

The Sun headlines a plea by doctors in the US and the Vactican

:01:24.:01:36.

That is after the public raised ?1.3 million to help pay for his

:01:37.:01:46.

treatment. The Daily Mail has a 4-page spread dedicated to Charlie

:01:47.:01:50.

Gard and his family after, it says, the Pope's spokesperson vote to

:01:51.:01:52.

overcome the British court ruling. The Times says

:01:53.:01:54.

the Transport Secretary, Chris Grayling, is to announce

:01:55.:01:56.

a ?1 billion road-building scheme Starting with the big story of the

:01:57.:02:04.

day which a number of newspapers are carrying, the front page of the

:02:05.:02:07.

Times. Donald Trump calls for June Trace is meeting over North Korea.

:02:08.:02:11.

They reckon they have the ballistic capability to fire a missile that

:02:12.:02:21.

can hit anywhere on the globe. It is the worst that few people want to

:02:22.:02:24.

see in a headline, Trump and North Korea. He has called her again

:02:25.:02:30.

crisis meeting, a meeting of the United Nations Security Council

:02:31.:02:32.

after North Korea claimed to have tested that intercontinental

:02:33.:02:35.

ballistic missile for the first time. He has upped his response,

:02:36.:02:41.

which up until now had been confined to tweeting, of course, the new tool

:02:42.:02:51.

in the diplomatic armoury. And it is expected that that meeting could go

:02:52.:02:57.

ahead tomorrow. Thank goodness he is going through the UN. And not just

:02:58.:03:04.

through Twitter. A president of the US on the 4th of July. Again, from

:03:05.:03:08.

North Korea, two fingers up. More than two fingers, though, this is a

:03:09.:03:15.

serious bit of kit. It could hit Alaska if they sent it out... Donald

:03:16.:03:23.

Trump did say... When was it, January or February, that he would

:03:24.:03:26.

never allow this to happen. That went well. It is the Chinese that

:03:27.:03:32.

good start that ever happening. North Korea as a client state of

:03:33.:03:37.

China. It is up to China to do something and Trump is appealing to

:03:38.:03:39.

China with his tweets and everything else. Keep your eye on this. We

:03:40.:03:45.

should not just be reading Trump's tweets, we should be reading about

:03:46.:03:53.

all the nations surrounding North Korea. In range of these North

:03:54.:04:00.

Korean missiles. Chilean tonnes of gas and oil under the that everyone

:04:01.:04:04.

will be fighting over. -- one Chilean tonnes. One wonders if we

:04:05.:04:09.

have to get used to the idea of North Korea having nuclear weapons

:04:10.:04:13.

and dealing with it on those terms. That is an idea that, you know, we

:04:14.:04:22.

should not just surrender on. No-one knows the manoeuvres behind the

:04:23.:04:24.

scenes in terms of what is happening with diplomacy but it is true that

:04:25.:04:32.

China will want to contain this. Diplomacy has run its course,

:04:33.:04:35.

really. But there is a school of fight that North Korea is defensive

:04:36.:04:39.

and does not want to be toppled like it Iraq -- Iraq and Syria. This

:04:40.:04:55.

headline, firefighter deal busts pay cut. Questions about the 1% pay cap

:04:56.:05:10.

four public service workers. The firefighters apparently have already

:05:11.:05:16.

busted this. Yes, this could be labelled another Tory surrender. If

:05:17.:05:20.

they start backpedalling on the pay cap, which was put in for a reason,

:05:21.:05:24.

not just the fun of it, it was to bring the public finances under

:05:25.:05:28.

control. On the backs of the public sector. I will come to that in a

:05:29.:05:34.

minute. It must be contained. And if they do not contain it, you can

:05:35.:05:39.

expect it to unravel. In relation to public sector pay, the truth is that

:05:40.:05:44.

after the recession, all P had fallen public sector pay rose more

:05:45.:05:56.

than private sector. Public sector pay has fallen by far less than

:05:57.:05:59.

private sector pay, having risen to a much greater degree between 2000

:06:00.:06:06.

and 2005. But the reason for the pay cap is to deal with the deficit. We

:06:07.:06:10.

have a lot of debt... We have a growing amount of debt. Past Jan

:06:11.:06:16.

soils have been trotted out in last few days, Alistair Darling, Kenneth

:06:17.:06:22.

Clarke, so on, they were fighting deficits in a different way. They

:06:23.:06:28.

did it by listening the past rings. -- the purse strings. This was a

:06:29.:06:36.

choice to put the birding on cutting spending. -- burden. I am just

:06:37.:06:48.

stating the facts! It is easy to dress up what is essentially heavily

:06:49.:06:52.

taxing a private sector worker who has seen his pay fault or greater,

:06:53.:06:57.

or her pay fault, to a greater extent than a public sector worker.

:06:58.:07:02.

It is easy to say, we will tax year to pay for public services. People

:07:03.:07:05.

are happy to be fought public services but the pain is to be

:07:06.:07:09.

shared across that the. It is private sector workers had the

:07:10.:07:15.

greater burden. Finished? Public sector workers pay their taxes as

:07:16.:07:20.

well. It is going to cost and it is going to unravel because the Tories

:07:21.:07:24.

are just listening to what they heard on the doorstep and the

:07:25.:07:28.

political fallout after the likes of Grenfell and London Bridge. Which

:07:29.:07:33.

people very quickly connected... Not the immediate response, which was

:07:34.:07:37.

fantastic, but the hysterical background and cuts that have left

:07:38.:07:41.

us in this situation. The firemen have gone for 2%. He started as a

:07:42.:07:45.

fireman on 21 grand, you might end up 136 grand. Inflation at 2.6%. The

:07:46.:07:53.

front page of the Daily Mirror is a continuation of this. Cameron, it is

:07:54.:07:56.

selfish to give our heroes penalises, it says. The millionaire

:07:57.:08:02.

next premier who rakes in ?126,000 an hour for speeches. It says. What

:08:03.:08:10.

is audience in Asia must have thought that he took potshots at

:08:11.:08:24.

British workers... Cameron White to defend his legacy. He did not go

:08:25.:08:26.

through that I remember the last time, during a

:08:27.:08:59.

Labour Government in 2002, they got a lot less than that and had to take

:09:00.:09:05.

changes in condition as well. OK, let's move on. The front page of the

:09:06.:09:10.

Telegraph. Leftover women forced to freeze eggs. What is that about?

:09:11.:09:18.

This is feminism coming back to inflict some pain on some alpha

:09:19.:09:22.

females. It is an interesting cultural story. We have written a

:09:23.:09:26.

lot about this on the website, actually. The numbers are

:09:27.:09:31.

significant. Supposedly, there has been a fivefold increase in British

:09:32.:09:36.

women freezing ex to about 4000 in total. -- freezing eggs. The

:09:37.:09:43.

procedure itself is very invasive. We are told this is because there is

:09:44.:09:47.

an oversupply of educated women and more women are going to university

:09:48.:09:56.

than men, it seems there and all -- are no men for them.

:09:57.:10:07.

Another hand, you could be going to university and leaving with ?57,000

:10:08.:10:15.

of debt. This is a symptom of the fact that there are more educated

:10:16.:10:19.

women than ever before. Six out of ten students are now women. The

:10:20.:10:23.

education system is succeeding for the funeral population, because we

:10:24.:10:30.

made that decision, but it is failing poor young white boys, to

:10:31.:10:38.

quote the book from last year. Failing young white guys are not

:10:39.:10:44.

getting into uni. There is a story behind that story. There is a whole

:10:45.:10:48.

book on that. We have it on the website as well. Been there done

:10:49.:10:53.

that. Front page of the Metro. Student loan was on a mortgage.

:10:54.:10:56.

Quite a few stories relating to student loans and problems people

:10:57.:11:01.

are having paying them off. The study says graduates from low income

:11:02.:11:08.

families, the ones who really get to university, leave with debts of

:11:09.:11:15.

57,000. That is since glands were replaced with loans. It says

:11:16.:11:19.

graduates will be in a 50s before they pay them off. But the debate...

:11:20.:11:33.

It is politically eschewed for Jeremy Corbyn to offer free tuition

:11:34.:11:40.

for students, great political cell caused engaged the years vote. --

:11:41.:11:47.

youth vote. But Labour that the wrong end of the debate. It is where

:11:48.:11:53.

you are born into your bond a life chances. If you're born in a poor

:11:54.:11:56.

farmer, you don't get support from the very beginning, before you can

:11:57.:12:00.

go to school. You're less likely to make it a university and then go on

:12:01.:12:04.

and make enough money to pay off listed below and if you do get to

:12:05.:12:09.

university. I don't think 40% of people should necessarily be going

:12:10.:12:14.

to university. A lot of people graduate with debt and are not

:12:15.:12:18.

secure graduate jobs. Not all degrees of the same. Lumping them

:12:19.:12:24.

all in one category is dangerous. Some degrees are useless. Name one.

:12:25.:12:35.

Gender studies is a worthless degree and you should not be paying for it.

:12:36.:12:41.

You're being generous with other people's money and asking other

:12:42.:12:45.

people too... I love shaking that money tree. Love it. I can't shake

:12:46.:12:51.

it enough. It's like when I used to go to church. Finally, I love the

:12:52.:13:01.

story. This is the Daily Express. Jean-Claude Juncker, president of

:13:02.:13:06.

the EU Commission, has gone to the European Parliament. Now want for

:13:07.:13:11.

his arrival and that of the Malta leader. He got very agitated and

:13:12.:13:18.

angry. He is like the old headmaster telling of the old schoolboys. It

:13:19.:13:23.

was a classic Visa TV, I am told. The express also tells us that the

:13:24.:13:27.

European Parliament, which will as we know is and democratic and Roger

:13:28.:13:39.

has no power, costs us eight billion pounds a year. Another reason why we

:13:40.:13:43.

should get out. One sentence comment. He is a notoriously

:13:44.:13:49.

passionate politician depending on the time of day, so this might have

:13:50.:13:53.

been after lunch. You know how we know he was angry? He gave his Thai

:13:54.:13:57.

leader in English. So we know he was angry. -- his Tyler Reid.

:13:58.:14:04.

Don't forget, you can see the front pages of the newspapers online.

:14:05.:14:08.

It's all there for you seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers,

:14:09.:14:11.

and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it

:14:12.:14:14.

Thank you, Laura Perrins and Torcuil Crichton.

:14:15.:14:17.

Hello. 25 Celsius in the sun in Kent today but just 12 in the rain in

:14:18.:14:36.

parts of southern Scotland and northern England. Northern Ireland

:14:37.:14:41.

improved a bit this evening, drier, plenty of
