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


With me are Nigel Nelson, political editor of the Sunday Mirror


and Sunday People, and the political commentator Jo Phillips.


Some people have more than 24 hours in their day, Nigel!


Tomorrow's front pages starting with...


The Observer, which tells us that German industry is warning the UK


it cannot rely on its help in securing a good Brexit


deal, this is a "stark" intervention, says the paper.


The Sunday People has an exclusive - it's talked to Lord Dannatt


about caring for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.


Back to Brexit and the Telegraph says Theresa May is trying


to capitalise on Donald Trump's optimism on trade amid growing


While the Mail On Sunday is told by Conservative MP Andrew Mitchell


that he thinks it's time for Mrs May to step aside because she


The Sunday Express leads with Mr Trump's comments that the UK


will thrive outside the EU and his promise to sign a "powerful"


And The Times - it says Mrs May claimed that Mr Trump's comments had


put her plan for Brexit "back on track".


We will start with the Sunday Telegraph and Brexit and Theresa May


plays the trump card. The Prime Minister trying to head off a


growing rebellion by playing up this strong backing from the US


president. Has anyone used the word very as much as Donald Trump. He has


this strange speech take where he repeats the next thing again. It is


very nice to see you, Martin, very nice to see you. Anyway, it is very,


very, very exciting and very powerful and it will happen very


quickly. Which it is not. How can any trade deal ever happen quickly?


It is a lot of warm words and Theresa May is trying to take


something good out of the summit where she has also been busy


chatting up various other leaders and things, but in the meantime


Donald Trump has decided he will not sign up to the climate change


agreement. He has isolated himself completely. We heard the click of


her saying she is dismayed, but how dismayed do you have to be to not to


try to persuade somebody. It all looks shambolic. I know we are


taking the p about he says very quickly all the time. Who is?


Martine is. I suppose it is because we do not get particularly


descriptive words from him. But these words are wrong. Very wrong.


He is giving us the idea we will get a trade deal in a few months down


the road. He has not actually said that. Would you say very, very


quickly we would get a trade deal? Anything less than ten years might


look very quick. To look? To anybody. First we have to get a deal


with Europe before we do a deal with the US and that is two years gone.


We are looking at several years after that, assuming everybody


agrees with it. Whatever the complexities of world politics they


have to be gone into in 140 characters and if it is beyond that


it is too much for him. That is because we expect very complex ideas


to be explained in a 15 or 22nd sound bite. To a certain extent, but


Nigel is right in that Donald Trump is right in that Donald Trump's way


is that business, and do not worry, if there is a problem, I will sort


it. Life is not like that when you are talking about complex trade


deals. But if things are going so well for Theresa May and this is the


leader of the free world, the other one being Angela Merkel, depending


on your point of view, they were saying previously we would not be at


the front of the Q and now we are doing business very quickly. He is


signalling he wants it to be very fast. And for her there is a


relationship that is not of the stature of the one with Ronald


Reagan, but there seems to be a general warmth, although I don't see


anything warm in Theresa May or Donald Trump can't do that, but you


are right. Barack Obama said we would be at the back of the Q, but


whether this is translated into action, and we have still got Brexit


to deal with. We do not even have a vague outline of what kind of trade


deal we are talking about. But the Daily Telegraph is quite optimistic


and says because of this Theresa May will be able to stave off any


backbench rebellion in her Cabinet that is coming her way. We will come


to that in a moment. Meanwhile, in the Daily Telegraph, US plans for


armed officers in UK airports which could add to the cost of fares in


the United States. I can relax about this. Do we really want guys from


America carrying guns and wandering around our airports? Now I think


people have got so used to the fact we have armed police around as all


the time. If you go to an airport armed police are normal. It seems to


me not a bad idea because American immigration is so difficult at the


other end. You have the screening process at this end rather than


having difficulty when you get to your destination. It reminds me of


the sky marshals we had on board planes after 9/11. Every now and


again there is a report of the intervening in something. But this


is a rather bizarre story because Gatwick has said it has got no plans


to participate. Heathrow says it is not workable. The airports


interested are Manchester and Edinburgh. They want more US trade.


Yes, they might want more US trade, but who will enforce this? If the


cost of your flight is more at Manchester or Edinburgh to pay for


American armed police... Let's hope it would make it more difficult for


people to come across from the channel. Yes, we hope it is more


difficult. Once again, we want more details. They must quit now says


chief Davis ally, this ally being Andrew Mitchell. Andrew Mitchell,


the former International Development Secretary forced to resign as Chief


Whip after the Plebgate affair. A very good and long-term ally of


David Davis. Simon Walters is the political editor and it is one of


his marvellous story. He talks about how he once got punched by him. Who


did? Simon Walters. Are we allowed to say that? He said he gave him a


friendly cuff around the head. So my remarks are justified. I would never


let you down. The story is about the devastating attack and the inference


is that David Davis, if he has not sanction it, he is aware, or would


be aware of what Andrew Mitchell is saying, whether he is saying it on


his behalf whether he is whipping up the frenzy of she has got to go. It


was not exactly a secret dinner. It was a one nation dining club. You


would not have it in the Commons. The impression I am getting from


most MPs is the one thing they dread more than anything else is a general


election, and that is all parties. If you look at the Tories because a


leadership challenge might provoke a general election, they dread that


next along the way. As they settle down, you get the impression people


think Theresa May will stay in place for two years. Some people are


talking about five. The leadership challengers, the likely ones, Boris


Johnson and David Davis, I do not think we are looking at an imminent


challenge to Theresa May at the moment. They will hold onto her for


as long as she is useful? Even if you put a stalking horse up to get


things moving, it still takes 48 MPs. It would be difficult to find


48 MPs. But they love this and to be honest so do we. It is a good


and it keeps on going and we are and it keeps on going and we are


about to go into the summary says and then it will be conference


season and the whole thing will be, who is going to unseat her? We might


have a more quiet period the summer. I do not think so, I think we have


got two years of mayhem at the very least. We have already had quite a


few months of it. The Observer. German industry in stark warning to


UK over Brexit, saying it will be hard to avoid hurting British


business. This is a genuine surprise. We have always thought


people like German car-makers are anxious to avoid any kind of tariff


barriers which is what we would get without a deal. They seem to be


taking the straightforward EU negotiator Michel Barnier line that


we obey the rules or we do not. If you want to be in the single market


and have access to it, we must also accept freedom of movement and we


will not do that. This is quite a serious warning from them. If they


are saying to us, if you want to be part of the club, you must obey the


rules of the club. It does seem to show there is not that much room for


the negotiation we keep talking about. But in stark contrast to what


Donald Trump is saying, do not worry, it will be sorted, it is a


direct contradiction of what David Davis, as previously mentioned, had


said before the referendum, that German industry would put pressure


on Angela Merkel to hand Britain a good Brexit deal. That is where the


negotiations will end up. It is the president of the Federation of


German industry is saying it and the president of the Confederation of


German employers Association. They want the single market and there


priority is to look after the 27 remaining members. Let's stay with


the Observer. I know you will be delighted to talk about the rugby.


Shared glory as the Lions try again. They have drawn, they did not win,


but it felt like they had one because expectations were low.


Fortunately she briefed me before I came on. It is a game with a funny


ball. Did you ask me what a draw was? I would not even know what a


draw meant. They got the same score. I went political saying what this


particular draw turned out to be. But it is the best result they could


have hoped for. No, it is not, the best result would have been to win.


They have been written off by the critics. I think it is a good


result. This is like the German referendum result. It is very Jeremy


Corbyn. Is Sam Warburton the new Jeremy Corbyn? Do you know more than


me? It does feel a bit like that. They have done better than we


expected when they set out, just like Jeremy Corbyn. It was still


only a draw. For the all Blacks that is devastating. Absolutely and the


Lions did beat them and the all Blacks beat the Lions and the


coaches will be deeply disappointed and they have said so. But I think


it is not a bad result. To show off, it was a tough, ten match schedule


next time they will reorganise the matches. It might give us a fighting


chance. To fit in with the wider jigsaw. Nigel, I found a couple of


facts about the story you really do not know anything about. I will give


it a try. Can we talk about Wimbledon next? It is on the front


pages or the back pages, so, yes. And the Independent. Brexit votes


legacy, record rise in hate crimes. A 23% increase in racial and


religious attacks, and exclusive. I am surprised about the figures. I


have seen figures about this that in fact a hate crime went up after the


referendum, but I thought it went down again. Then we had the


terrorist atrocities that put them up again. This suggests it has been


a continuous thing. These are different figures because they come


from a Freedom of information requests from the paper. But they do


make pretty grim reading. If we are talking about up to nearly 50,000


hate crimes that took place in the 11 months after the referendum, and


if the two things can be linked, it is troubling. It also explains why


so many people are thinking about going home. We are not getting the


fruit pickers in at the moment, this is the season of it, and they are


the backbone of the agricultural workforce. And there were 41,000


crimes before, so that is shocking. Yes, which we did not speak about.


One of the things you can say is that perhaps people feel more


confident about reporting it, the silver lining. There is a reporting


spike as well. But we need more observation. And also more time.


That would always be nice, wouldn't it? And two Mori views on Monday to


Friday. That is not my point of view, it is your point of view.


Thank you, Nigel Nelson and Jo Phillips, you'll both be back


at half 11 for another look at the stories making
