the All Blacks in Auckland, leaving the Test series at a tie.
Hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be
With me are Nigel Nelson, political editor of the Sunday Mirror
and Sunday People, and the political commentator, Jo Phillips.
Tomorrow's front pages, starting with this.
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.
It's talked to Lord Dannatt about caring for veterans
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
The Sunday Express leads with Mr Trump's comments that the UK
will thrive outside the EU and his promise to sign a "powerful"
It says Mrs May claimed that Mr Trump's comments had put her plan
And that is where we will start with the Sunday Times. Donald Trump
throws Theresa May a lifeline with a trade deal. A sabotage to the appeal
bill. A lot to cope with. The lifeline. The promise of a trade
deal. He says it will be very powerful, very quickly. We are not
there yet. We are not. It is a long way off. It will take at least two
years before we can even begin, assuming Brexit even happens in that
time. Many think they will have to be a transitional deal that will go
on much longer. Therefore, any trade deal will be some years in the
future. The Sunday Times is very clever. They managed to get three
stories in one. The trade side, with the Sunday Times suggesting Theresa
May talked to China, Japan, and India, who are keen on trade deals.
They say that is one for her cabinet. Then we go on to our own
future, with an ally of David Davis saying in October she should say
when she is going to resign. And the Great Repeal Bill, the one that will
have a rough time in the Commons next week. This is when they talk
about the Henry VIII powers, those not used since Henry VIII's time.
Tell us about it? The idea about the repeal bill is when we Brexit, all
European law will be put into British law, one deal. It is an
interesting way to do it. We can spend years gradually picking it
apart after doing it in one day. MPs will not get a vote on it. They are
worried we will start repealing this, leaving that, without them
getting a chance to consider it. They are thinking of opposing it and
making trouble for it. If they can defeat the repeal bill, of course,
we would have a major problem the day that Brexit came. They have
wedged a lot in. Yes. A powerhouse! Well done, both of you. We are very
pleased to count them as our paper review was. But there is a lot going
on behind the scenes, which we will go on to. The facts Theresa May
needs this lifeline from Donald Trump. Absolutely. As you said, we
will talk soon about what the Germans said. She needs a lifeline.
But it is not a lifeline, someone is saying it's OK, we will come back
with a lifeline. It is not actually someone giving the rope. Keep
treading water. That is the risk of Donald Trump. Yes. It is warm words.
And she has come back, I don't know how important any more these summits
are, frankly, there is a fundamental gap between the Americans on climate
change and the Paris agreement. They are trying to appeal to many people,
the home audience and the international audience. Compared to
what Barack Obama said riot to the referendum, this is a useful change.
-- prior. It is a useful change. She is already in talks with China,
Japan, and India. She is working very hard to get some business deals
already and interest with countries outside. At least we have an
American president who likes Brexit, which we would not have had with
others. Theresa May playing the Trump card,, trying to play off this
rebellion with help from Donald Trump. But the idea she will face
that critical of a rebellion, it would appear she will have surely
enough friends to keep her in power for now. It does not suit the
Conservatives to get rid of her. She is very weak and since the election.
She is probably fatally damaged in the long-term. But we are going...
What is it, two weeks until the summer recess? Everyone will go away
and come back for the party conference in the autumn. These
stories will continue to rumble on. There are obviously people making
mischief, making stories. There is of course growing talk in the Lib
Dems, certainly, and softer pro Brexit, sorry, pro- remain talking
points. That is going on. But nothing new is going on in the
Tories, they just feel weak. They don't want a new leader because they
are terrified of opening the way for a General Election. It is difficult
with Tory rules. You need 48 MPs to back someone to go for leadership.
You get the kind of feeling that they have some power, because
Theresa May is so weak, she used to be dictatorial, and now they have
more power over her. That doesn't change the people in the background
saying I wouldn't mind the job when it comes around. There would always
be people like that. The Mail on Sunday says Andrew Mitchell, a chief
David Davis ally, is saying this. Andrew Mitchell said this at a
dinner in the Commons, a Conservative Party dining club, he
was forced to resign. He was also the international development sector
ally. He is a close ally of David Davis. There is no suggestion in
this article David Davis is plotting against Theresa May, but he is being
seen by many, and I think this is what often happens, someone saying,
go on, Nigel, you can do it. If there was a challenge and Theresa
May could not survive it, they would be in the position she is in. They
would not feel they have a mandate. That is what they are terrified of.
That is why they don't want another General Election. Andrew Mitchell
could be the anonymous MP on the front of the Times, we don't know.
But the message is awfully similar. The idea is that Theresa May should
go. One hard-line Brexiteer named here says he would rather not lose
Brexit so long as Jeremy Corbyn does not get in. That is just ridiculous.
Of course. If there was an election tomorrow, Jeremy Corbyn would
probably win. Exactly. It is a very febrile atmosphere, summer, everyone
needs to go away and come down. She got through the Queen's Speech, she
could get to the 20th of this month, Parliament breaks, they have a
break, the comeback, and they talk about else. And in the meantime,
political minds need to be looking at what these deals might be. The
Sunday People. An exclusive. Britain is breaking the law over six
soldiers. Lord Dannatt from the army is saying not enough is being done
to support ex- service men and women who suffer from Post-Traumatic
Stress Disorder. A serious intervention from someone who was
head of the army at one point. The problem at the moment is that, umm,
those who suffer Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder coming back from the
frontline, there is very little for them. There is the NHS, superb
charities like Combat Stress. Lord Dannatt is saying this is no way to
treat the troops. We promised if they risked their lives, we would
look after them when they came back. David Cameron brought in a covenant
and Lord Dannatt is saying we are breaking that and breaking the law.
He says it is down to the MoD to sort this out. You don't just have
charities to rely on, you have a proper set up in the MoD which deals
with people going through these mental difficulties. It is something
the paper has been campaigning on for quite some time. He is certainly
the most senior person so far to come out with something like this.
Like so many lives of the people in the families of these sufferers.
More than 10% of return price back -- Britain's soldiers suffer this.
What he is saying, I think it is devastating, in 1917, they did not
understand shellshock, but in 2017, we do understand PTSD. And
apparently there is no MoD dedicated psychiatric hospital cap will of
treating those with. -- capable. It is ironic, as Prince William and
Prince Harry have of course been talking about mental health and
mental illness. Prince Harry has been a serving soldier. It seems
absolutely fundamentally wrong that however good a charity is, you can
back from seeing and doing stuff civilians don't see and you are not
given any help. Coming back into civilian life is hard enough for
those not suffering from this stress. It is not about a lack of
awareness, but a lack of resources, a formal framework for dealing with
it. And also a lack of organisation. We have resources and all of that.
But what you need to do is the MoD needs to have a cross parliamentary
group that covers health and Work and Pensions and various departments
getting involved. You set that up in the MoD specifically for people
suffering from PTSD. And it would play into so many other areas of
treating mental illness. Yes, yes. We know that veterans, former army
personnel, they often end up on the streets, with drinking and drug
problems, broken relationships, other problems. If there was some
resources put into it, you could prevent that. We need the will. It
is one of those things you put in paper. Lord Dannatt is talking about
potentially suing the government. That is not a constructive way of
dealing with it, it should not be necessary. The Observer. Taking us
to the end. The Germans and the industry warning the UK about
Brexit. We want to talk about Lions, both. But the German industry is
warning the UK ever Brexit, saying the priority is to protect the
single market and no favours will be done. This headline is definitely a
stark warning, not what we expected. Our ministers have been giving the
impression, especially David Davis, that the German industry, especially
carmakers, are the ones who would help smooth us through a record deal
because they don't want tariffs on the goods they sell in this country
any more than we do over there. -- Brexit deal. What they are saying is
these are industry organisations saying, no, no, we don't think that
at all. If you want access to the single market, obey the rules. We
will not help out at all because there are 27 other states. There has
been a free trade deal struck with Japan, the EU and Japan. There is no
freedom of movement, no single market, but a free-trade deal. We
are looking for a similar thing. Keep in mind we are a member of the
EU, and the smoothest transition to become out of the EU would be with
access to the single market or the customs union. We are looking for a
different position from Japan, but we want something similar. In years
to come... In years to come, it won't be the same kind of smooth and
frictionless borders we have at the moment to do the trade. The
president of the BDI, the federation of German industries, says it is the
responsibility of the British to limit damage for both sides. He is
talking about imminent effects. Is it all down to political will on
both sides? We can have a very, very nice arrangement if everyone is of a
like mind, but they are not. We cannot. There are straightforward
rules when the EU is set up. These are the cornerstones of keeping the
EU as it is, which we signed up to, and also 27 other member states
signed up to. If you want a single market, we have to accept freedom of
movement. That is what people voted against when they voted for Brexit.
There is no way of squaring that circle. We go with the rules or we
don't. If you want to be in the club, those
are the rules. And we made those rules clear to other nations who
joined. It will be interesting to see what the negotiation is, because
it can't be about that. And finally, shared glory as Lions win. It is a
little bit of an anti-climax, it is like here is your Brexit cake, but I
think in terms of the fact that the Lions were seen as the underdogs,
they were going to take on the mighty All Blacks, they won, we won,
a draw seems like a good deal to me. Nigel, you have been saved by the
bell. I know you had much to add about the Lions. We will talk of
set. How about that? Visit from the papers this power. Thank you very
much indeed -- that is it from the papers this hour.
Migration, human dislocation is one of the dominating political themes
