Welcome to the look ahead at the papers from what they will be


bringing us tomorrow. Martyn Pennington home affairs editor the


Evening Standard, Josey Cox, editor at the Independent. A lot to get


through. Let's look at the front pages. The Mirror, dominated by the


story of what they call two precious lives. The Daily Mail leads with the


Charlie guard story. No possibility that the youngster could receive and


experimental drug. The express reporting that the UK's foreign aid


budget is being used to prepare countries against natural disasters.


Let's start with the Daily Mail, a new twist on the story of Charlie


Gard, the baby, the case going to the High Court recently. A new


chance. Doctors say a new drug could help them. The hospital going to the


court again, having previously thought there was nothing more they


could do. This is the third time that Charlie Gard has decided


survive the decision. This time seven International scientists,


coming over asking doctors to reconsider carrying on treating


Charlie in Great Ormond Street Hospital winner just talking about


it earlier, heartbreaking story. Not much more we can add. The agony for


the parents, his mum convinced he's not in any pain. A clash of ethics,


medicine and the law. One of the people you have done earlier


explained it very well. The question is, these doctors coming forward,


suggesting there may be a possibility this could work, even


though it has not been tested on mice. Never mind a human. Clearly


the parents would like to take any chance they can. They will not want


to cause any more pain to this young boy, cannot move, cannot explain


that he is suffering. A terrible dilemma. They have pushed back to


the court, to say whether we like to do this though. Let's look at what


has been happening at the G20's summit. The meeting everyone has


been looking forward to, the meeting between President Trump and


President Putin. The ceasefire has come out of this. Everyone is


obsessed with the body language. And that they have to work on.


Relationships will have been pretty poor between the countries. The


meeting went on longer than anticipated. To hours, 16 minutes.


They were going on to a concert. Clearly some progress here if they


have agreed a ceasefire in Syria. Potentially good news. The


underlying differences as to how to approach the ultimate resolution of


the conflict remains. How durable that is,. Donald Trump using the rat


trap power shake. Grabbing old. Not up against President Macron. It says


that Trump won the body language battle, clearly other people think


Putin has won in terms of the flattery. You are not going to get


one over on Vladimir Putin. The same photograph on the Financial Times.


Trump raises 2016 meddling in talks. Let's put a framework together to


make sure it never happens again. Trump asserting his authority. Even


though he came in, and use very flowery language, saying it is an


honour to be with you, not just Tonucci. Nonetheless he wanted to


prove to everybody he had come here for a reason. He has the teeth to


bring up an issue that is perhaps not the epitome of diplomacy, I'd


say. Bosses are rebuffed on Brexit transition. Some calls from business


leaders, Dave wanted some longer period, within the customs union and


single market after Brexit to smooth things out. The latest comes from


the CBI, Confederation of British Industry. They have, for months,


been particularly concerned about the cliff edge, they are talking


about. They represent a whole lot of businesses. One of the most pressing


concerns if the movement of people in the aftermath of a hard Brexit.


They are concerned businesses will not be able to recruit the right


people. It seems they are ramping up the language. Talking about this


earlier. They are saying they want a transitional deal, but don't specify


how long it would be. Saying indefinitely. That screens in the


face of Brexit altogether. Philip Hammond saying that is not


happening. What he's saying is not unreasonable. Remaining in the


single market and the customs union critically and possibly legally if


the government wants to achieve any of the key objectives of Brexit is


possibly difficult. He wants to retain absolutely as many of the


benefits as possible. Difficult negotiating objective to achieve. A


very complicated issue, obviously. Not that he's saying we don't want


to do what you want to do, or the rhetoric about having a very close


trading relationship with the European Union. As close as


possible. Madness not to have that. A question of methods. All he is


read by thing here is the idea you can remain part of the single market


and customs union indefinitely in a transitional period, which, as you


say, suggests Brexit never happen. That would put the cat amongst the


pigeons. As you would expect, from spreadsheet Phil, they will minimise


the impact to business. Make of the first year, the tragedy in five


acts. Photographs of Theresa May as she became premier is the first


interesting 12 months for her, hasn't it? Certainly has. One of the


other papers as a result of a job satisfaction, satisfaction ratings


on the Conservative Home website. Before the general election,


something like 81, 80 9% approval rating, now down to -20 six.


Epitomises what this is talking about. Took over, appeared to be


going tremendously well. Everything in her favour. Great election


victory in the bag. All collapsed rather disastrously, despite winning


the most seats. A massive disaster is reversed. Her authority is badly


damaged. Probably absolutely fatally in the long run. The flip side is


the Corbin story. -- Jeremy Corbyn story. Talking about all kinds of


things to do. Rather than necessarily what he should be


talking about. Going back to the anniversary of Theresa May. The


G20's summit falls at an interesting time. A lot of the pictures we are


seeing in the paper summing up what has happened in that year. She


seemed quite marginal. Absolutely, game that he body language and


posture. A lot of the pictures standing there with Philip, really a


sideshow for the time being. Rather than Putin in Trump. The thing we


Jeremy Corbyn, a poll saying Labour is a point in front. Paradoxically,


that may help Theresa May to cling on a bit longer than might otherwise


have been the case. They have a leadership election, does not mean


there has to be a general election, but you get back to the same thing,


a leader without a mandate from the public. The destabilisation that


would cause. Quite a few people in the Conservative Party not keen on


going down that road for that reason. There may be a further act


or two to follow. Very quickly, the Telegraph. RSPCA demands police


powers. So the charity could gain entry to property without having to


wait for police officers to come and help rescue a pet. Yes, the


Telegraph's long been critical of the RSPCA, raising this issue here.


It seems perhaps an unnecessary step, although, clearly everybody


could understand wanting to stop animal suffering is a valid aim. The


question will be, how often they actually are delayed in taking


action because they cannot get the police to turn up. The other


question, the police are increasingly under pressure from in


terms of resulting numbers. There may be something in it, but seems a


step that needs to be taken. They would have to be statutory powers.


Looks like an attempt by the RSPCA to reassert its powers essentially.


Going through a difficult period. Jeremy Cooper, the chief executive,


stepping down last month. Accused by the Charity commission of having


governance that is below the standard of a modern charity. Looks


like they are trying to reassert itself. Page two of the Times, more


rights for workers in the gig economy. A review carried out by


Matthew Taylor from the Royal Society of arts. Looking at what is


happening inside this gig economy, people self-employed, but working


for lots of different companies. There have been legal challenges,


whether they should be getting benefits. Really topical, first of


all because the gig economy is growing at such an explosive rate.


More than one million people employed this way. Companies like


Uber. Some people are able to exploit loopholes. It sits some


people. Timothy Page tax, which suits some of the companies.


Different people, different categories of people within this


type of workforce. What you don't want is the people in effect


exploited, the 1's labour talks about on zero-hour contracts. People


on zero others contracts he wants to them, other people would rather have


security of employment. The detailed report will be quite important,


getting it right will again be difficult for the reasons you


alluded to. There is a need to try and protect some people from


exploitation in the workplace. And being forced to work erratic hours,


not much pay. Not being able to earn what they want learn. Let's finish


with the Daily Mirror. Charlie Gard on the front page. Also attributed


Bradley, another little boy who died at the age of six. Bradley Lowry, a


mascot for his football club. Became very good friends Jermain Defoe. He


has said it all about Harry was so touched by meeting this young boy.


He has sadly died today. Nothing much more you can say, a very sad


story. At least I suppose he managed to enjoy this friendship with


Jermain Defoe. The enjoyment of appearing as a mascot for Sunderland


on numerous occasions. The fact he raised all this money, raised


awareness for other children, of course in his situation. Parents


facing the same trauma. Very significant. Very sad front page.


That's it for tonight. Don't forget all the front pages are online seven


days a week on the BBC website. You can also see this on the telly if


you have missed it live. And they don't like. It is only iPlayer if


you want to catch it later. Martin and Josie, thanks for coming in on a


Friday night. Coming up next, the weather.


Hello, once again. Another day of contrasting
