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

:00:15.:00:18.

in co-ordinated outfits, which I am sure they arrange before coming on

:00:19.:00:32.

the news... With me are Ruth Lea,

:00:33.:00:32.

who's Economic Adviser and the journalist and columnist,

:00:33.:00:35.

Yasmin Alibhai-Brown. Tomorrow's front pages, starting

:00:36.:00:38.

with Ttomorrow's Financial Times leads on what it says

:00:39.:00:40.

is the Chancellor's bid to cushion the blow of Brexit

:00:41.:00:43.

with a two-year transition deal. The Metro says the Chancellor

:00:44.:00:45.

is at loggerheads with some fellow ministers, who he accuses of trying

:00:46.:00:48.

to undermine his strategy The Daily Telegraph also leads

:00:49.:00:51.

on the supposed rift between Philip Hammond

:00:52.:00:55.

and his Cabinet colleagues - one of whom accuses the Chancellor

:00:56.:00:57.

of trying to keep Britain in the EU. The Times says Britain is wasting

:00:58.:01:01.

billions on fighter jets that the RAF won't be able to use

:01:02.:01:03.

because of defence cuts. Call 999 - get Skype instead -

:01:04.:01:07.

the headline on the Daily Mail, which reports that some patients

:01:08.:01:10.

are being denied ambulance crews The Sun leads on the new Doctor

:01:11.:01:13.

Who - Jodie Whittaker - the 13th Time Lord and the first

:01:14.:01:17.

woman to play the role. While the Mirror greets

:01:18.:01:20.

the new Doctor with delight - it's About Time Lord,

:01:21.:01:23.

says their front page. And back to Brexit on tomorrow's

:01:24.:01:26.

Guardian front page, which warns of a threat to food

:01:27.:01:28.

supplies after Britain leaves. What on earth is going on inside the

:01:29.:01:46.

Cabinet? Two different stories. Hammond the hypocrite on the Daily

:01:47.:01:54.

Mirror. Raking in ten K a month renting properties and accuses the

:01:55.:02:04.

public sector are being overpaid. There is a different mood in the

:02:05.:02:11.

country. At one point everybody knew this and nobody can but the sense of

:02:12.:02:18.

economic injustice is rife and, I think, for the Chancellor, if he

:02:19.:02:25.

made those remarks, they were unwise. I suppose it is not he was

:02:26.:02:30.

among fellow colleagues and I think The Mirror is right to do this

:02:31.:02:36.

because I get so irritated by rich people, whoever they are, being so

:02:37.:02:44.

down on those who have so much less than them and I think it is good to

:02:45.:02:49.

be reminded that a lot of people are making decisions for us have not

:02:50.:02:53.

lived the last many of us, many people live. It shows on one of the

:02:54.:03:06.

pages, 11 Downing St, the use of a beautiful mansion in the

:03:07.:03:12.

countryside... Alex Syriza house... This is all perfectly legitimate it

:03:13.:03:17.

is just that it is difficult for some people the stomach but we did

:03:18.:03:24.

hear the Chancellor said on the Andrew Martin Showa that they

:03:25.:03:30.

receive a premium, public sector workers. Who knows whether he said

:03:31.:03:40.

it not... He must have said it. If he said it in the Cabinet meeting,

:03:41.:03:45.

which should not have been late, you do not know the context. I think the

:03:46.:03:49.

point I presume he was trying to make is that the public sack has

:03:50.:03:54.

some premium in terms of remuneration over the private sack

:03:55.:03:57.

that especially in the pension costs. Our research everything for

:03:58.:04:05.

this programme and it was a referral to a study that said even without

:04:06.:04:11.

the pension allowance, the public sector workers were paid more than

:04:12.:04:16.

private sector workers are allowing for so-called qualifications... Then

:04:17.:04:24.

we should be talking to the private sectors and telling them to stop

:04:25.:04:29.

exploiting workers. That is what Philip Hammond was trying to say the

:04:30.:04:34.

top if you compare salaries then actually they do seem to have a

:04:35.:04:38.

premium... But if they are better qualified and have higher education.

:04:39.:04:47.

He has just after that. They are just as far as they can... But

:04:48.:04:54.

public sector people, like John Donald said this morning, this

:04:55.:05:02.

cleanup on ?230 a week... You live on that? This is not what Philip

:05:03.:05:08.

Hammond was trying to save up although I take your point. He was

:05:09.:05:14.

just trying to make a comment about the difference. I cannot bear it,

:05:15.:05:24.

you are so consensual. This is not what the viewers tuned in for, this

:05:25.:05:31.

kind of agreement. I am with Philip Hammond. It used of treachery.

:05:32.:05:38.

Deliberately trying to frustrate the withdrawal from the EU and he says

:05:39.:05:43.

people are briefing against him and tried to stopping cushion the blow

:05:44.:05:49.

against the economy and jobs. As I say, he gave the speech about three

:05:50.:05:54.

weeks ago and I thought it was perfectly reasonable because he said

:05:55.:05:59.

we would be out of that single market but he wants a transitional

:06:00.:06:07.

management. This could be the thousand and 22 before it becomes

:06:08.:06:15.

functional. I see no problem. -- 2022. I do not think he is trying to

:06:16.:06:25.

be treacherous. There is a huge number of Brexiters who want to

:06:26.:06:31.

slash and burn and do this thing without due consideration. What is

:06:32.:06:36.

going to happen to our country and the people of our country. Here I

:06:37.:06:41.

come down with you in favour... Hammond at least is not a slash and

:06:42.:06:49.

burn kind of guy but there are people... There is an emotional

:06:50.:06:56.

overreaction to Brexit. I do not think he can survive this if the

:06:57.:07:03.

leaks carry on but he is the most sensible of the lot. The irony is,

:07:04.:07:09.

if you look at what the Brexit Department has published, and indeed

:07:10.:07:17.

even Theresa May later to task, he was pertinently reasonable in my

:07:18.:07:27.

view. -- Tusk. She wanted a close relationship to their EU. David

:07:28.:07:34.

Davis is not a slash and burn either. I think he can be sometimes,

:07:35.:07:41.

on a bad day at. It is just ideologically driven. He is a very

:07:42.:07:49.

pragmatic like and knows he has to negotiate. This is about internal

:07:50.:07:57.

struggles and power. Mr Davies showing his ?100,000 watch today. It

:07:58.:08:07.

was in the papers. It is not watch, it is leather trousers. The

:08:08.:08:13.

Guardian, ministers said to be sleepwalking to lower standards. A

:08:14.:08:21.

lot of people, like I said, are ideologically driven towards Brexit

:08:22.:08:26.

rather than sensibly thinking about it. They are in your recall the

:08:27.:08:31.

evidence coming in. Food prices are going up. They were going up if all

:08:32.:08:39.

the referendum... They are going up all because of food supply problems.

:08:40.:08:48.

I cannot believe the kind of bullies on the side of Brexit, and we have

:08:49.:08:53.

them too but not as bully is these, one of the things surely any

:08:54.:09:00.

government and politician has an absolute duty to is to protect the

:09:01.:09:05.

country they are in charge from terrible economic disasters and

:09:06.:09:08.

other disasters and I find this really frightening. I think it is

:09:09.:09:17.

complete cobblers. I do not think it is right to say that but you have.

:09:18.:09:25.

If all we join the EEC, we had a perfectly sensible agricultural

:09:26.:09:30.

policy. But the world has moved on. We imported food at world prices,

:09:31.:09:37.

whether it was from the states, and that Australia... We did not have

:09:38.:09:44.

the range of food in our diets. Give me with one reason why we are still

:09:45.:09:50.

not going to be importing food. This country was a basket case when I

:09:51.:09:54.

arrived in 1972. This is utter and complete cobblers because we will

:09:55.:10:01.

continue to import food and the advantage of being outside the EU is

:10:02.:10:04.

that we will not be in this protectionist policy that has height

:10:05.:10:12.

tariffs on imported food... But it also has high standards. So why

:10:13.:10:17.

don't we keep them? I have little doubt... This is an objective

:10:18.:10:26.

research... Object if! Are you going to reject fact... Yes, it is

:10:27.:10:35.

absolute cobblers. This is the fourth time, if you are offended by

:10:36.:10:44.

this mild language I apologise. We can/ tariffs and get cheaper food

:10:45.:10:51.

prices. We can have lower food prices. This is all fantasy. We will

:10:52.:11:00.

have to wait and see. Highly protectionist organisation called

:11:01.:11:06.

the EU. It is not protectionist. 25% tariffs. A very protectionist US

:11:07.:11:12.

government is making here promises an hour. Finally we have got some

:11:13.:11:19.

discord. That is why you tuned in. You have said enough. The Sun,

:11:20.:11:30.

Doctor Who - Jodie Whittaker is going to be a doctor. For the first

:11:31.:11:35.

time we have a woman. But you thrilled? Yes. I am also thinking

:11:36.:11:42.

what took so long and know the answer to my question because men.

:11:43.:11:53.

It is men. It is men. The Guardian, time gentlemen please. Great

:11:54.:12:05.

headline, we'd use that also. I am very thrilled about... What's the

:12:06.:12:13.

name? Jodie Whittaker. Why not. I think we need to say what kept you

:12:14.:12:22.

so long? I am being consensual now. What took you so long. The Mail, new

:12:23.:12:36.

balls, please. Federer wins we pierced Wimbledon final ever. What

:12:37.:12:43.

is wrong with that? Felt a bit sorry for Chile each. -- Cilic. He had a

:12:44.:12:58.

very horrible blister and I felt sorry for him. You are in the finals

:12:59.:13:06.

at Wimbledon and you have a bad foot, I think you sort of lost his

:13:07.:13:11.

nerve. He was playing against the drop. I like it that more men are

:13:12.:13:17.

weeping. I think too many of them have kept all these inside the too

:13:18.:13:26.

long. I like a man that weeps. Prince Philip doesn't. And I do like

:13:27.:13:35.

Prince Philip Fer that reason and... -- for that reason. When you want

:13:36.:13:45.

this so badly, you are bound to feel very emotional. We are living in

:13:46.:13:50.

good times where men can express their feelings. It has been cruel

:13:51.:13:54.

that many of them have had to live through a cruel historical period

:13:55.:13:58.

where they worked allowed to. We do not want too much of it. We do not

:13:59.:14:04.

want politicians crying... Theresa May shed a tear. Philip Hammond is

:14:05.:14:12.

probably shedding a tear... We are quite prone to weeping after this

:14:13.:14:20.

edition of the papers. That's it from the papers. Always a cheater,

:14:21.:14:27.

you never disappoint. You should have your own show.

:14:28.:14:35.
