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

:00:17.:00:19.

With me are the Spectator's political correspondent,

:00:20.:00:22.

Katy Balls, and the broadcaster David Davies.

:00:23.:00:29.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:30.:00:30.

The Telegraph, which leads with a warning from the official

:00:31.:00:32.

review body for teachers of risk to the education system

:00:33.:00:35.

following an announcement that pay rises in the profession

:00:36.:00:37.

On the Metro's front page is the Conservative party's

:00:38.:00:42.

suspension of the MP, Anne Marie Morris, after a recording

:00:43.:00:45.

emerged of her using a racially offensive term to describe Britain

:00:46.:00:48.

The FT shows an image of the Russian lawyer who is reported to have met

:00:49.:00:53.

with President Donald Trump's son, and who says has damaging material

:00:54.:00:55.

Drinking coffee could lead to a healthier life says a story

:00:56.:00:59.

The Guardian is accusing Theresa May of insulting teachers

:01:00.:01:05.

The Times details how a Tory pledge to build more free schools

:01:06.:01:13.

could be scrapped in order to boost education budgets.

:01:14.:01:22.

The Daily Mail has the Charlie Gard story including a warning from the

:01:23.:01:28.

judge that he will not be influenced by treats.

:01:29.:01:33.

A headache for the MP involved but also afford to reason me because

:01:34.:01:39.

she's had to suspend one of her own for using the n-word. Today at

:01:40.:01:50.

lunchtime on their MP two was speaking at a panel and she use the

:01:51.:01:56.

n-word. By Minister Mac responded within three hours. -- Theresa May

:01:57.:02:12.

responded. She responded quickly. The problem is that her working

:02:13.:02:18.

majority has now dropped by one person, because this MP will be

:02:19.:02:22.

independent for the time being. It is important that she sent the

:02:23.:02:28.

message that it was not acceptable, particularly as the Conservative

:02:29.:02:31.

Party has been dogged with rumours that they are at the nasty party. It

:02:32.:02:40.

is a phrase that might have been used by people from a certain

:02:41.:02:46.

generation, but coming out the mouth of someone who is a member of the

:02:47.:02:51.

Conservative Party in this day and age, frankly there was only one

:02:52.:02:55.

thing that could happen to her and that is suspension from the party.

:02:56.:03:03.

The member of Parliament for Newton Abbot has not gone across my horizon

:03:04.:03:08.

very often during her seven years in the House of Commons. The truth is

:03:09.:03:14.

that we live in the generation that we do. There is no argument that

:03:15.:03:20.

this is unacceptable language in this generation, whatever the past.

:03:21.:03:30.

Theresa May must be willing for a moment to go on a long walk with her

:03:31.:03:41.

husband again to contemplate... What? It is virtually impossible to

:03:42.:03:45.

believe there will be more years of this. In the mail on Sunday over the

:03:46.:03:54.

weekend they said she should be gone. Regardless of what you think

:03:55.:04:02.

of Andrea Mitchell of what should happen I don't think many people

:04:03.:04:08.

think she will sit there indefinitely and it doesn't rain but

:04:09.:04:15.

it pours. The story is an example of that. The length of the suspension

:04:16.:04:23.

is key here when it comes to important votes coming up. Any idea

:04:24.:04:30.

how long the suspension might be? We do not know yet but if it is very

:04:31.:04:34.

short it will look meaningless. It will need to be substantial. Even if

:04:35.:04:41.

this MP is independently could still vote with the government. It might

:04:42.:04:48.

work like that. When Iraq if she is suspended she cannot vote. -- she

:04:49.:04:59.

cannot vote when she is suspended. She can vote. The question is what

:05:00.:05:09.

will happen in Newton Abbot. The reaction there will be interesting.

:05:10.:05:18.

Very interesting. Page two of the sun, the Prime Minister was under

:05:19.:05:26.

huge pressure last night to drop her hard Brexit line. Reality is

:05:27.:05:37.

starting to dawn. I don't know. Here we have at last this two-year

:05:38.:05:45.

deadline to get us out of the European Union and that is not going

:05:46.:05:51.

to be met. Now we are being told that there may be a transitional

:05:52.:05:56.

period and how long that may be, that is reality. It is just a case

:05:57.:06:06.

of how long. Both sides have admitted there will be a

:06:07.:06:11.

transitional period but the issue is Will there be a destination insight

:06:12.:06:21.

or is it just because we have not come to a deal yet, which will not

:06:22.:06:24.

be accepted by that strand of the party. Free schools are under threat

:06:25.:06:33.

due to budgets. Bad news for teachers here because the 1% pay cap

:06:34.:06:43.

seems set to stay with them. Free schools may not be expanded as was

:06:44.:06:49.

promised. This is the David Cameron project launched under Michael Gove.

:06:50.:06:54.

There will be a lot of Cabinet annoyance over this. I am a school

:06:55.:07:05.

governor and believe me if you have a long enough memory to go back to

:07:06.:07:10.

the 1980s, a Conservative government and Margaret Thatcher in number ten.

:07:11.:07:20.

He was the Secretary of State for Education and education was up there

:07:21.:07:30.

at the top of the political agenda. Here we are, the free schools are

:07:31.:07:35.

under threat from budget raid. All the issues around education are

:07:36.:07:40.

coming up to the top of the agenda and there are some tricky issues for

:07:41.:07:47.

any government to face. Staying with the times, councils bet billions on

:07:48.:07:53.

property purchases. An interesting story. British councils are betting

:07:54.:08:05.

on commercial property as they tried to replace revenue loss through

:08:06.:08:10.

government cuts. There is a quote that says councils might as well be

:08:11.:08:16.

buying shares with public money or betting on the 230 and Scott. That

:08:17.:08:24.

is the comparison that he makes. It is all a sign of the desperation.

:08:25.:08:32.

The desperation of councils at this time and how they are going to find

:08:33.:08:37.

the existing programmes that they have. It is difficult for a

:08:38.:08:43.

councils. Funding is not keeping pace with inflation. They have to

:08:44.:08:50.

find way of serving the people they are supposed to represent. It

:08:51.:08:56.

highlights the problem is that the cuts to local government. Do you

:08:57.:09:04.

think the government has gone too heavily? It is quite working because

:09:05.:09:09.

if you read other stories on other days about what is happening to the

:09:10.:09:17.

property market and house prices are falling there are concerns about the

:09:18.:09:23.

future of local council funding. They are flocking about the bubble

:09:24.:09:32.

expanding and popping at some point. You can argue that there is some

:09:33.:09:39.

good news in the middle of this. The Chancellor has said that the filters

:09:40.:09:45.

need to consider whether they are willing to accept higher taxes to

:09:46.:09:52.

ease austerity and that is his fundamental point. That is the

:09:53.:09:57.

choice any government would have to take. We will see what happens next.

:09:58.:10:12.

This is about the lack of job security for delivery riders.

:10:13.:10:18.

Talking about the report that is coming out tomorrow looking at the

:10:19.:10:31.

working conditions and lack of workplace rights for people in the

:10:32.:10:37.

gig economy. Theresa May might have or nations when it comes to job

:10:38.:10:46.

security. Job grips seek lock on price limits. They are saying there

:10:47.:10:59.

are limits on how much they will pay and others are saying this could be

:11:00.:11:03.

quite dangerous for patients. You will not get the care that you would

:11:04.:11:09.

get elsewhere. It raises a lot of questions about the funding of the

:11:10.:11:14.

NHS, which is having a crisis at the moment. Though maybe drugs that

:11:15.:11:24.

cannot be got on the National Health Service and that will bring this

:11:25.:11:34.

debate into the central stage. The health service to vote saw me about

:11:35.:11:41.

10% of its budget to medicine, law that many large health systems in

:11:42.:11:44.

other developed countries. That surprised me. Where is the money

:11:45.:11:56.

going? On other services. There is an interesting point about them

:11:57.:12:05.

seeking to block this. Some in the drugs industry are split on this.

:12:06.:12:10.

Glaxo Smith Kline said they were not supportive of the action and

:12:11.:12:15.

AstraZeneca also said they had reservations. We will see where that

:12:16.:12:25.

goes. On some sport now. I know you love sport. You particularly love

:12:26.:12:34.

that Manchester United bought Lukaku. You prefer tennis. Rafael

:12:35.:12:54.

Nadal is out. It is the first time that they will have a British man

:12:55.:13:08.

and woman in the topic. I was not at Wimbledon today, I was there on

:13:09.:13:17.

Friday. I was there last week and I saw Rafael Nadal and I thought he

:13:18.:13:27.

was at the peak of his powers. He came back fantastically and then

:13:28.:13:36.

this titanic 15-13 in the final set. He should have drank more coffee. We

:13:37.:13:41.

need to leave it there because we are out of time. It was good to see

:13:42.:13:45.

you both and thank you. Don't forget you can see the front
