We will talk in more detail about some of those. John, why do we start


with the The FT and Donald Trump getting a warm welcome in Warsaw.


Rapturous, a turnout, people bussed in from the countryside by the


government because they knew they would give him a round of applause


for stop a lot of people in Poland agree with Donald Trump on his


thoughts about immigration, despite the fact that thousands of Polish


Google come to this country they agree with him that it has to be


controlled and they liked what he had to say about countries in their


part of the world being right behind them whatever the circumstances. It


went down very well and in stark contrast to what happened later when


he went to Germany where there are 100,000 people on the streets,


20,000 police out there in protest at his presence there and what he


stands for. We have been showing pictures of the demonstrations and


it will be an interesting G20 and meeting between Donald Trump and


Putin tomorrow, which will be fascinating. This is a meeting where


Donald Trump is out of his comfort zone. He is relatively safe when he


is doing his speeches in America but here he is, over in Europe and we


had that difficult meeting, the Nato meeting where Trump met various


European leaders, lots of handshakes, jostling in pictures,


move people out of the way. Trump is meeting the same group of people


again and he has this high pressured meeting with President Putin and I


am not entirely sure what is going to happen after this because you


might see a quieter time from Putin or you might see more flexing of


Putin's muscle. This is a crunch meeting very sizeable muscles, we


have seen them many times! That will be the money shot, when they shake


hands. So, the express, EU told you can't write in Britain. This is a


Tory, David Campbell saying you can't frighten us. Saying that


Eurocrats are trying to scare us because they think we might walk


away from the negotiations, scare tactics on their part. This is after


Michel Barnier, chief Brexit the Goucher to, as far as he concerned


you cannot be half in and half out. -- chief Brexit negotiated. The


possible to your being half in and half out, you can't do that. He has


taken the opportunity since our election and since our weakened


position, knowing that Theresa May has this minority government, he is


using the opportunity to talk tough, being black and white about things


and saying you cannot be in the single market, you can't be out of


the customs union and still expect some trade eels so I think he is


being so opportunistic. You would say, well, he would, wouldn't the?


He need to take a hardline and negotiate from there. I think the


tone after election is even stronger. A lot of the papers and


the Telegraph, we're not showing it now, they have this disease is


talking about an indefinite delay in leaving the single market and the


customs union, really trying to push for not a cliff edge. You hear the


different dimensions of this every single day and I think the business


community, it's such a powerful voice and I think people need to


listen to what they have got to say and I think they have got their


meeting coming up tomorrow and I think that is a lobbying force you


cannot ignore. The Sun, I feel that silly season is almost upon us!


There is a butter crisis. The headline is I can't believe


they're's no butter, I can't believe it either! I don't believe for a


single second but a good talking point, I suppose. Of course,'s BBC's


fault. It's partly because experts have allayed fears about butter but


they say it is also because of TV's great British bake off, which used


lots of butter, sugar and and such in cake making and so we have an


alleged crisis. Personally I could not care less because I did use but


anyway, I use marginally. Also a rise in wholesale butter prices of


88% in a year. This will end up going back to the price farmers are


paid for milk and I think if we're going to have a butter shortage


there is going to be all kinds of problems. Was the last soldiers


Brussels sprouts? I don't care for sprouts! , I love Brussels sprouts,


leave them alone! Also in The FT, also news stories giving children


post-dramatic stress disorder. We have had this run of horrific


stories, the various terror attacks and Grenfell Tower. It is a strong


issue and I think many parents watching, they have been really


concerned after Manchester and the events here in London and the


Manchester event of course involving young children. What you do when


children are watching the six o'clock News and a story like this


comes on? We do our best, we all do our best warn people that images may


be distressing, we leave on the cutting floor the images that are


too distressing but nevertheless it is an issue, it's disturbing and


kids ask questions and sometimes they are difficult to answer. If


they are left with those thoughts it's conceivable. And you can't get


away from it in social media and the discussion comes back to how you can


monitor the things online because all feeds in together. OK, that's


move on to The Telegraph and they have a story, 1 million patients a


week cannot see a GP, unable to get appointments with a GP, the worst


waiting times on record according to figures. Staggering, actually. We


were talking about this earlier, we have a great GP practice near us. I


have not had a real problem. If you want to see a particular document


had to wait a few days. I have never had a problem, either. Maybe we are


lucky, maybe it is different in London but these figures are


undeniable. 11% of people according to the survey done by the NHS don't


see a doctor at all. A massive number not being able to see a


doctor for a whole week and this raises fears about people suffering


in silence and needing hospital treatment. The government... In GP


can own it 2.4 billion. You need to see a doctor! Yes, my voice! The


investment is there, that is what I am trying to say. But you read


reports about not enough people coming forward to train as GPs and


the fact of the matter people are having to wait a long time. This is


their own survey, it's undeniable and it is an unsustainable crisis


and unsustainable pressure. Kate, The Daily Mail have this story about


a statue of the iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher. The plan being blocked


because it might be eight target for vandals. They say left-wing


activists might use this statue as a point of protest and we have seen


before that the Winston Churchill statue there has from time to time


ended up with a code on its head and it is the most dishes that will


thing and I can understand the concerns about having lady that you


-- Lady Thatcher, statue of her there and I think why should we not


celebrate her and make sure she is there so that people can see it and


it is also part of our political history as well. Somebody's phone is


ringing! We will politely ignore it! Not mine! The Times have got a story


about the hard left in a plot to oust dozens of Labour MPs. The


section hit list as Corbyn takes an 8-point lead. Just when you think


things might have been going the right way for Labour and that Jeremy


Corbyn was doing really well, people were gathering around him, you now


hear about this hard left plot and, you know, this might be the way the


Times has decided to present it but you can't deny there has been a real


increase this week in the talk about deselection of MPs. Was there an


uneasy truce in the Labour Party after the election do you think


which is now that's beginning to fall apart's you had silence from


the moderates. There is often confusion here that people, let's


call them the moderates, that they'd want to play any part in:'s team and


that is untrue. What happened when Corbyn was trying to those Cabinet


visions was they didn't ask him, he did not ask them to serve at all and


many of them had told me they would be more than happy to take a job in


his team but what you have now is new MPs like Chris Williamson, the


new Derby North MP, he has been here for a matter of weeks, already


saying we need to keep things fresh in the party. Let's talk about the


cricket. Very important. And a cheerier note. And we are all


rooting for Joe. First day, first Test match as captain, 26 years old


and he has scored 184 and dragged England right back into it because


they were 17-2 when he went in. They went to 74-4-macro and then him, and


Stokes and Moeen Ali turned things around was captain's innings, what a


debut and a strong position. Sometimes bats men who are captains,


being the captain affects them and you end up getting a duck. Not Joe,


357-5, a strong position indeed. Pats off to him. Brilliant start.


Two three other England captains have scored a century in their first


test but more the merrier. But still finely poised? I think so. But South


Africa are a strong side, no doubt about it, weather is good so we look


forward to four more days of it. Wimbledon, cricket... Thank you very


much, John I will let you answer your telephone. It was me, guilty as


charged! Case, thank you to you. That's it from the papers tonight.
