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

:00:17.:00:23.

bringing us tomorrow. Martyn Pennington home affairs editor the

:00:24.:00:27.

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

:00:28.:00:30.

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

:00:31.:00:38.

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

:00:39.:00:49.

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

:00:50.:01:10.

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

:01:11.:01:16.

budget is being used to prepare countries against natural disasters.

:01:17.:01:23.

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

:01:24.:01:30.

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

:01:31.:01:37.

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

:01:38.:01:42.

court again, having previously thought there was nothing more they

:01:43.:01:45.

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

:01:46.:01:55.

survive the decision. This time seven International scientists,

:01:56.:01:58.

coming over asking doctors to reconsider carrying on treating

:01:59.:02:03.

Charlie in Great Ormond Street Hospital winner just talking about

:02:04.:02:07.

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

:02:08.:02:12.

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

:02:13.:02:20.

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

:02:21.:02:24.

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

:02:25.:02:29.

suggesting there may be a possibility this could work, even

:02:30.:02:32.

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

:02:33.:02:38.

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

:02:39.:02:45.

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

:02:46.:02:50.

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

:02:51.:03:04.

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

:03:05.:03:11.

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

:03:12.:03:16.

been looking forward to, the meeting between President Trump and

:03:17.:03:25.

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

:03:26.:03:36.

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

:03:37.:03:43.

Relationships will have been pretty poor between the countries. The

:03:44.:03:47.

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

:03:48.:03:55.

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

:03:56.:03:58.

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

:03:59.:04:03.

underlying differences as to how to approach the ultimate resolution of

:04:04.:04:13.

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

:04:14.:04:22.

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

:04:23.:04:29.

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

:04:30.:04:33.

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

:04:34.:04:39.

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

:04:40.:04:47.

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

:04:48.:04:50.

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

:04:51.:04:58.

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

:04:59.:05:01.

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

:05:02.:05:08.

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

:05:09.:05:13.

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

:05:14.:05:21.

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

:05:22.:05:33.

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

:05:34.:05:36.

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

:05:37.:05:43.

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

:05:44.:05:48.

been particularly concerned about the cliff edge, they are talking

:05:49.:05:52.

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

:05:53.:05:57.

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

:05:58.:06:01.

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

:06:02.:06:05.

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

:06:06.:06:12.

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

:06:13.:06:17.

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

:06:18.:06:21.

face of Brexit altogether. Philip Hammond saying that is not

:06:22.:06:25.

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

:06:26.:06:30.

single market and the customs union critically and possibly legally if

:06:31.:06:34.

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

:06:35.:06:39.

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

:06:40.:06:43.

benefits as possible. Difficult negotiating objective to achieve. A

:06:44.:06:49.

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

:06:50.:06:56.

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

:06:57.:07:00.

trading relationship with the European Union. As close as

:07:01.:07:04.

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

:07:05.:07:09.

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

:07:10.:07:15.

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

:07:16.:07:20.

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

:07:21.:07:31.

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

:07:32.:07:37.

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

:07:38.:07:41.

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

:07:42.:07:46.

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

:07:47.:07:51.

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

:07:52.:07:57.

on the Conservative Home website. Before the general election,

:07:58.:08:03.

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

:08:04.:08:07.

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

:08:08.:08:15.

going tremendously well. Everything in her favour. Great election

:08:16.:08:20.

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

:08:21.:08:24.

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

:08:25.:08:28.

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

:08:29.:08:38.

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

:08:39.:08:44.

things to do. Rather than necessarily what he should be

:08:45.:08:51.

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

:08:52.:08:54.

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

:08:55.:08:58.

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

:08:59.:09:07.

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

:09:08.:09:11.

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

:09:12.:09:17.

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

:09:18.:09:21.

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

:09:22.:09:25.

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

:09:26.:09:31.

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

:09:32.:09:34.

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

:09:35.:09:39.

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

:09:40.:09:42.

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

:09:43.:09:46.

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

:09:47.:09:53.

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

:09:54.:10:01.

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

:10:02.:10:04.

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

:10:05.:10:11.

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

:10:12.:10:18.

It seems perhaps an unnecessary step, although, clearly everybody

:10:19.:10:22.

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

:10:23.:10:29.

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

:10:30.:10:31.

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

:10:32.:10:36.

question, the police are increasingly under pressure from in

:10:37.:10:39.

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

:10:40.:10:44.

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

:10:45.:10:49.

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

:10:50.:10:54.

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

:10:55.:11:00.

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

:11:01.:11:03.

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

:11:04.:11:07.

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

:11:08.:11:14.

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

:11:15.:11:18.

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

:11:19.:11:25.

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

:11:26.:11:31.

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

:11:32.:11:34.

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

:11:35.:11:39.

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

:11:40.:11:46.

More than one million people employed this way. Companies like

:11:47.:12:03.

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

:12:04.:12:13.

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

:12:14.:12:16.

Different people, different categories of people within this

:12:17.:12:20.

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

:12:21.:12:24.

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

:12:25.:12:29.

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

:12:30.:12:34.

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

:12:35.:12:37.

getting it right will again be difficult for the reasons you

:12:38.:12:42.

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

:12:43.:12:45.

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

:12:46.:12:51.

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

:12:52.:12:57.

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

:12:58.:13:03.

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

:13:04.:13:10.

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

:13:11.:13:15.

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

:13:16.:13:20.

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

:13:21.:13:25.

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

:13:26.:13:31.

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

:13:32.:13:35.

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

:13:36.:13:40.

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

:13:41.:13:42.

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

:13:43.:13:49.

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

:13:50.:13:55.

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

:13:56.:14:03.

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

:14:04.:14:08.

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

:14:09.:14:11.

Friday night. Coming up next, the weather.

:14:12.:14:23.

Hello, once again. Another day of contrasting
