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

:00:15.:00:17.

With me are the broadcaster Penny Smith and the journalist James

:00:18.:00:21.

The FT says Theresa May is expected to ask Labour to come forward

:00:22.:00:29.

with feedback and ideas on her policies following speculation

:00:30.:00:33.

amongst backbench Conservative MPs over her future.

:00:34.:00:37.

The Telegraph runs with the same story, saying Mrs May will ask

:00:38.:00:40.

for Jeremy Corbyn's help to push through Brexit bills and for MPs

:00:41.:00:45.

to contribute, not just criticise her plans.

:00:46.:00:47.

Mrs May's unprecedented appeal to Labour will be seen as an attempt

:00:48.:00:50.

to relaunch her faltering premiership, the Guardian says.

:00:51.:00:55.

Her remarks will set a very different tone to her leadership

:00:56.:00:58.

style before the election, the Times says, as she faces up

:00:59.:01:01.

to a new reality of a minority government.

:01:02.:01:04.

And the i also leads with that story.

:01:05.:01:06.

Meanwhile, The Metro features the parents of terminally-ill baby

:01:07.:01:13.

Charlie Gard, who delivered a petition to Great Ormond Street

:01:14.:01:16.

Hospital today calling on them to let him go to the US

:01:17.:01:19.

Their appeal is also the front page story in the Mail.

:01:20.:01:23.

The paper says the High Court hearing taking place tomorrow

:01:24.:01:26.

That story is also in tomorrow's Mirror.

:01:27.:01:34.

So let us begin. The first story is the front page of the Guardian. A

:01:35.:01:41.

photo on the front of a few front pages tomorrow, celebrations in

:01:42.:01:47.

Mosul with the Iraqi forces there celebrating the defeat of IS. But we

:01:48.:01:51.

have been considering this evening just how much they have to

:01:52.:01:56.

celebrate. That is a good point. It is wonderful they have liberated

:01:57.:02:00.

Mosul but at what cost? Thousands of people have died, mainly civilians.

:02:01.:02:06.

Some from coalition airstrikes. Million residents have been

:02:07.:02:10.

displaced. Great swathes of the city have been reduced to rubble

:02:11.:02:15.

including the famous mosques and minaret. Ayaz has this fantastic

:02:16.:02:18.

ability to regenerate itself. Some of the Ayaz commanders came from

:02:19.:02:30.

Saddam Hussein's Kabbalah henchmen. They went up aid and reappeared in

:02:31.:02:35.

IIS. 300 to Hades have been killed they are foreign fighters. And they

:02:36.:02:45.

will disappear and reappear in some other place. 1500 attacks have been

:02:46.:02:50.

mounted on freed areas of Iraq and Syria in the last year. These people

:02:51.:02:55.

are not going away. They are extremist who will do anything to

:02:56.:02:59.

achieve their aims. They do not wear uniforms. They do not fight... We

:03:00.:03:06.

should point out that they are celebrations because the people

:03:07.:03:11.

there have been living under this, under IS for three months but living

:03:12.:03:16.

with bombs and fighting for nine months. -- living under IS for three

:03:17.:03:20.

years. The final months were horrible and close... The desolation

:03:21.:03:28.

we have seen in images has been staggering. It was completely wiped

:03:29.:03:32.

out. And can you imagine how that you would be if that was your city?

:03:33.:03:36.

The city that you love, turned into that. All the people you know who

:03:37.:03:44.

have died, who have had hideous situations with the so-called

:03:45.:03:47.

Islamic State. These militants still do have a handful of pounds in some

:03:48.:03:56.

stretches, it says, of sparsely populated desert. They can change,

:03:57.:04:03.

they can morph they can melt away, they can rise again and it does not

:04:04.:04:09.

have to be rising again in Mosul. There are several other Iraqi

:04:10.:04:15.

cities... The ground is fertile for jihad is because there is misery

:04:16.:04:21.

positive. That is where jihadist ideologies thrive. Neighbours are

:04:22.:04:25.

turned against neighbours. This is an Epoque will struggle between the

:04:26.:04:35.

Sunnis and the Shia. A journalist was upset because an old man said he

:04:36.:04:44.

watched his daughter shot in front of him by a neighbour he thought was

:04:45.:04:49.

a friend. That is the sort of thing that was happening in Yugoslavia.

:04:50.:04:52.

Battling between people who were formerly friends. Domestic matters

:04:53.:04:58.

now. A beautiful photo on the front page of the Times. We can discuss

:04:59.:05:06.

the bug lets talk about the headline. An absolutely beautiful

:05:07.:05:20.

image, as you say. A week and Made pleads for support. Another

:05:21.:05:24.

difficult weekend ahead Theresa May who have a fight on her hands to

:05:25.:05:28.

retain the leadership and take the party forward. There is suggestion

:05:29.:05:32.

that she will beg Jeremy for help and support which suggest how

:05:33.:05:37.

utterly desperate she must be at the moment. It does smack of

:05:38.:05:42.

desperation. Reports today, denied by Mr Mitchell, apparently told

:05:43.:05:49.

other Tory MPs that Mrs May was dead in the water, echoing what George

:05:50.:05:59.

Osborne said after the election. Totally un- suppressed glee,

:06:00.:06:03.

actually. It is interesting that so many Cabinet ministers are openly

:06:04.:06:07.

questioning her policies. Boris Johnson saying that they must lift

:06:08.:06:13.

the cap on public service pay. I just wanted to say that there is

:06:14.:06:17.

this talk of this sort of thing and how it could all change before the

:06:18.:06:23.

autumn meeting, before the autumn conference. But then you have David

:06:24.:06:28.

Liddington in this saying that it is all too much sun and too much press

:06:29.:06:43.

echo. -- prosecco. The only thing in her favour is a terrible job and

:06:44.:06:48.

that is why Boris Johnson nor David Davis have openly campaigned against

:06:49.:06:52.

her. They do not want the job at the Mosman. What is this manoeuvring

:06:53.:06:57.

they keep on talking about? That is gossip that goes on in all political

:06:58.:07:01.

parties. Nobody has come out and said they want the job because it is

:07:02.:07:05.

a terrible job, to try and steer this country through Brexit, the

:07:06.:07:10.

most difficult negotiations since the Second World War and with a

:07:11.:07:14.

weakened party with no majority without the help of the DUP. They

:07:15.:07:21.

used to say that English football manager was impossible job. I would

:07:22.:07:27.

say it is now the Prime Minister. May faces a backlash over historical

:07:28.:07:32.

repeal bill. Another milestone as we head towards the Brexit negotiations

:07:33.:07:37.

will not again, I bring it back to what support she can garner from the

:07:38.:07:47.

rival parties. Jeremy Corbyn, in the current climate, will he be in any

:07:48.:07:51.

way incentivise towards helping her? No. That is a simple answer. Tory

:07:52.:07:57.

MPs are openly saying that her position is untenable and I do think

:07:58.:08:04.

this repeal bill will be a complete nightmare to try and steer through

:08:05.:08:07.

Parliament. Except that we always knew it would be. We are so knitted

:08:08.:08:15.

into Europe that unpicking it was always going to be difficult. This

:08:16.:08:20.

idea that we could suddenly go OK, on this day let us just stop it. It

:08:21.:08:24.

does not happen like that. This is the divorce from hell. You thought

:08:25.:08:29.

that Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor had it off... You have not

:08:30.:08:34.

seen Brexit. You will get the Jules, who will get the dog, the yacht, the

:08:35.:08:41.

house? That is small beer compared to this. It will only take seven MPs

:08:42.:08:48.

to mount a rebellion, for the government to be defeated, even with

:08:49.:08:53.

the help of the DUP. It is so tenuous. And you have Liberal

:08:54.:09:00.

Democrat saying, predicting that legislative war, saying the bill

:09:01.:09:04.

would look like a Christmas tree because of the number of amendments

:09:05.:09:08.

that will be hung onto with full. As I said, anybody who thought it was

:09:09.:09:18.

going to be easy... Over the last year, it is not going to be easy.

:09:19.:09:23.

This is the reaction from the European Parliament rejecting

:09:24.:09:28.

Britain's damp squib off on citizens rights. This is Theresa May's

:09:29.:09:35.

suggestion a couple of weeks ago. Do not forget, that this is a

:09:36.:09:38.

negotiation, this is our starting point. It is very much like the

:09:39.:09:44.

start of any negotiation. You go and barter over something in a market

:09:45.:09:50.

you start your position here, they start there and you come together.

:09:51.:09:55.

That is how it is. The problem for Mrs May now is that before the

:09:56.:09:59.

election she was being quite leash, saying that no deal is better than a

:10:00.:10:07.

bad deal. But Europe is laughing. There is a sense in Europe that we

:10:08.:10:11.

are a laughing stock closed she is so impotent and everything will need

:10:12.:10:14.

to be run through Parliament where she does not have a majority. They

:10:15.:10:20.

think well, how can she get through any hard Brexit ideas because she is

:10:21.:10:24.

fatally weakened? Again, we come back to that point. It is going to

:10:25.:10:29.

happen because we voted for it. There for it will happen. There are

:10:30.:10:35.

people who say they won't. And there are people who say they will. I was

:10:36.:10:42.

told the other day by someone just to get over it. I was quite

:10:43.:10:48.

flattered. It showed I had annoyed her in a way. And I think this whole

:10:49.:10:54.

idea that we just turn up, have a nice chat with Michelle Barnier...

:10:55.:10:59.

We have long established that that is not going to happen. Let's move

:11:00.:11:05.

away from politics back to the Financial Times. This is a tidal

:11:06.:11:09.

power project under. ?1.3 billion project. This is something that is

:11:10.:11:19.

at the most a massive job. It has been described by some critics as

:11:20.:11:26.

Britain's hobbyist ever renewable energy project so it is in Swansea

:11:27.:11:34.

Bay and this would be a tidal lagoon 1900 construction jobs. A huge

:11:35.:11:42.

number of jobs. Six mile seawall. 16 underwater turbines, powerful

:11:43.:11:47.

155,000 homes. It would take three years to build and have a design

:11:48.:11:52.

life of 120 years. The thing is, of course, you can look at one side and

:11:53.:11:56.

say that if great. The other side will save what a catastrophe for the

:11:57.:12:04.

local area. This story is saying, essentially, that the government...

:12:05.:12:07.

It's that was supported by David Cameron at the time. They have now

:12:08.:12:12.

said either stump up the cash and make it happen or just stop it now

:12:13.:12:16.

because there are people who have put in lots of money to this already

:12:17.:12:22.

and now.... They say it could be spectacular. That that is the local

:12:23.:12:26.

investors talking it up. And it is true it would generate many jobs in

:12:27.:12:33.

terms of construction but perhaps like David Cameron's career which

:12:34.:12:37.

ended up with him tweeting photos of his own feet, this may well be

:12:38.:12:45.

doomed. If that is the last we hear of him, so be it the cost of lagoon

:12:46.:12:54.

power is, to me, is its downfall. It is predicted to cost 168 megawatts

:12:55.:12:58.

per hour where is nuclear power, derided by people, is almost half

:12:59.:13:05.

the price. But then you have environmentalists who say, yes, what

:13:06.:13:08.

about the long-term consequences? And this is the problem with

:13:09.:13:13.

everything. However, a six mile seawall will cause massive

:13:14.:13:16.

environmental damage. The ecosystem is going to be destroyed. We could

:13:17.:13:23.

build a wall! What a great idea! Write-down the English Channel. I

:13:24.:13:31.

believe Donald Trump is planning to come to this country, maybe we

:13:32.:13:34.

should build across the Atlantic. If we build a wall, he can't reach it.

:13:35.:13:40.

On that note, thank you very much and we will leave it for now. Thank

:13:41.:13:45.

you for taking us through the papers. Coming up next, the film

:13:46.:13:46.

review.
