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

:00:32.:00:34.

With me, Camilla Tominey, political editor of The Sunday Express

:00:35.:00:37.

and Jason Beattie, Head of Politics at The Daily Mirror.

:00:38.:00:40.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:41.:00:41.

The Financial Times headlines the start of the second

:00:42.:00:43.

round of Brexit talks with a photo that triggered

:00:44.:00:45.

comments on social media about the Brexit Secretary's

:00:46.:00:49.

The i picks up on today's announcement on the route

:00:50.:00:54.

of the new high-speed rail track, HS2.

:00:55.:00:56.

The Times reports that Theresa May is being urged by cabinet ministers

:00:57.:00:59.

to sack colleagues after a string of leaks.

:01:00.:01:02.

The Metro runs with a story on rail delays, saying that arrival times

:01:03.:01:05.

will now be recorded and publicised to the minute.

:01:06.:01:07.

The Daily Telegraph picks up a report claiming that

:01:08.:01:12.

government funds for overseas aid are being wasted.

:01:13.:01:15.

The Daily Mail says that the Electoral Commission

:01:16.:01:17.

is launching an investigation into students that may

:01:18.:01:23.

The Daily Express leads with a story on a new diet that says it can beat

:01:24.:01:28.

The royal couple's trip to Poland makes The Sun's front page.

:01:29.:01:35.

The paper leads with a story claiming the Duchess of Cambridge

:01:36.:01:37.

HS2, Jason, if so controversial, very expensive and we heard today,

:01:38.:01:52.

very sad for people who were living in new homes that will be

:01:53.:01:57.

demolished. Yes, the route has been changed again. Is it worth money and

:01:58.:02:05.

is it the route we need? The idea when it was first unveiled, it would

:02:06.:02:12.

be good for connectivity between the North and south, a lot of people in

:02:13.:02:17.

the North said what we really want is an East-West connection, that is

:02:18.:02:22.

where the big gaps are in transport and then you have this extraordinary

:02:23.:02:28.

cost, some people say 100 million, Chris Grayling the Transport

:02:29.:02:33.

Secretary says it will not be that must but we have experience of these

:02:34.:02:36.

things going over budget and now this disruption where the route

:02:37.:02:41.

which was going to go through Doncaster will now go through Max

:02:42.:02:46.

Boro, you understand why people will be distraught. It would be hard to

:02:47.:02:51.

build any major infrastructure projects without destroying some

:02:52.:02:59.

homes. We know Chris Grayling is infrastructure are heavy and likes

:03:00.:03:03.

these big projects and when it comes to the north and HS2, a lot of our

:03:04.:03:08.

leaders are sick of all roads leading to London, HS2 is going from

:03:09.:03:15.

London but if there is more connectivity between Northern

:03:16.:03:18.

cities, it can redress the balance of power, but a lot of villages in

:03:19.:03:24.

Britain don't even have high-speed broadband, and you wonder about this

:03:25.:03:28.

new world where we are on our phones late at night, it might be better

:03:29.:03:33.

for some people in this age of working from home if their internet

:03:34.:03:37.

links were improved rather than the rail links. The Metro, a story about

:03:38.:03:45.

delays and something to cheer up rail passengers? Yes and no. We will

:03:46.:03:52.

get more information about why the train is late. Does that help hold

:03:53.:04:00.

the company to account? We have technology now which can tell you

:04:01.:04:04.

what time your train will arrive and how late it will be that the

:04:05.:04:09.

compensation will not change, companies still only have to pay

:04:10.:04:13.

compensation if your train is more than 30 minutes late, so people will

:04:14.:04:21.

say, Southern Railway trains are frequently late, if you can measure

:04:22.:04:27.

how bad it will be why can't companies not pay more easily? Why

:04:28.:04:34.

can they not pay like on London Underground her efforts more than 15

:04:35.:04:37.

minutes late you can go online and get it repaid with no questions?

:04:38.:04:44.

Sometimes you can't be enough privately operated trains and not

:04:45.:04:51.

find out for half an hour. Private companies are rightly getting bad

:04:52.:04:55.

press because they are not fit for purpose for commuters are paying

:04:56.:05:00.

more money for the service to be either stood in the crowded carriage

:05:01.:05:05.

or on the platform waiting for no train to arrive. We will find

:05:06.:05:16.

something. Brexit talks have begun again, second round of talks, David

:05:17.:05:22.

Davis and his team in Brussels and the FT have that picture where there

:05:23.:05:27.

doesn't seem to be a lot of paperwork on the side of the British

:05:28.:05:32.

but David Davis was there to kick things off and then led it to his

:05:33.:05:38.

team of officials. He hadn't got his paperwork bout of his bullet-proof

:05:39.:05:44.

bag but Michel Barnier looking serious because they have massive

:05:45.:05:49.

dossiers. I don't know if they had their paperwork out or he was

:05:50.:05:55.

winning it. You could look at this picture and sake if you are a

:05:56.:05:59.

Brexiteers this proved so much bureaucracy you get and the other

:06:00.:06:06.

way is to say the optics are terrible, if the central charge for

:06:07.:06:10.

David Davis is that you haven't done the detail and against experienced

:06:11.:06:16.

negotiators, quite a lay yourself to be pictured in a situation like this

:06:17.:06:20.

and reinforcing what is seen as your weakness? There are now 98 British

:06:21.:06:26.

officials in Brussels negotiating this. It is weird that they are

:06:27.:06:33.

going there and coming back because they are having this technical

:06:34.:06:39.

period that he probably doesn't like hanging around in Brussels

:06:40.:06:45.

unnecessarily. I would have thought Brussels is anathema to most

:06:46.:06:50.

Brexiteers. The split within the Cabinet, Brexit is a part of that

:06:51.:06:57.

but we have had rumblings for days, according to The Times, May one to

:06:58.:07:04.

sack donkey ministers. Where has this come from? Theresa May is going

:07:05.:07:16.

to tell Cabinet tomorrow to stop, I wonder if she will be going to

:07:17.:07:21.

Magaluf and say they have had too many beers, you have this Tory party

:07:22.:07:30.

with this vortex of borrowing over Brexit, a Prime Minister who doesn't

:07:31.:07:36.

have the clout to assert her control and then this jostling for positions

:07:37.:07:42.

as being the next in line to take over and they are in this death

:07:43.:07:49.

spiral and I cannot see an easy way out, they will reflect on how better

:07:50.:07:57.

to get rid of her. There is rivalry for the leadership but also

:07:58.:08:03.

important political questions, Brexit and austerity, dividing the

:08:04.:08:08.

Cabinet? And I think Jason's description could apply to the

:08:09.:08:15.

Labour Party, it is all tricky and I think Theresa May is grateful for

:08:16.:08:19.

the timing that this is her last Cabinet meeting and she will not be

:08:20.:08:25.

subject to more links, although the timetable of Brexit is the only

:08:26.:08:29.

thing that carries us through the summer, Jason and I wondering what

:08:30.:08:33.

the recess will bring after this frantic period but I imagine

:08:34.:08:38.

briefings will continue and they will not be able to resist. The

:08:39.:08:45.

Daily Telegraph have a story about overseas aid money which they say is

:08:46.:08:51.

being wasted. We must use the word wasted very carefully. It is a

:08:52.:08:58.

detailed report and is full of praise for the Department for

:08:59.:09:00.

International Development, it says it has done better but there was a

:09:01.:09:07.

habit of it coming to the end of a financial year and then rushing

:09:08.:09:11.

through spending to meet its target. The government has bred the

:09:12.:09:17.

development budget among other departments and it is the other

:09:18.:09:21.

departments who have a smaller share of the budget and are now spending

:09:22.:09:27.

their money on the deadline. The argument is not that money is being

:09:28.:09:31.

wasted, international aid is a good thing, but the fact that Treasury

:09:32.:09:37.

imposes deadline so you have to rush money through and that is

:09:38.:09:42.

unnecessary. It's a good thing if we know where it's going, this strikes

:09:43.:09:48.

me as a macro Virgin of when all the roads in your area are closed

:09:49.:09:53.

because the council has decided to spend its last pot of cash filling

:09:54.:09:59.

holes that don't exist. Even if this is spread across departments, people

:10:00.:10:04.

are saying we have to spend and if you rush things through you make

:10:05.:10:07.

mistakes and money goes to the wrong people. The Daily Mail have stories

:10:08.:10:16.

about students who voted for Jeremy Corbyn, two votes for Jeremy Corbyn.

:10:17.:10:25.

Peter Brown and Andrew other backbench MPs rates concerns with

:10:26.:10:29.

Andrea Leadsom that students could register in their university town

:10:30.:10:36.

and then go home, that timing a month later than normal, Jean meant

:10:37.:10:42.

students had gone home. Jason has experience of this because your

:10:43.:10:48.

daughter, you were telling me she was easily able to register twice.

:10:49.:10:55.

She only registered -- only voted once, it was easy to register twice.

:10:56.:11:03.

Apparently there was a vote -- there was an app that told you where your

:11:04.:11:09.

vote would be more useful. The Electoral Commission site there is

:11:10.:11:13.

no evidence of widespread abuse, they have received complaints. You

:11:14.:11:22.

have one central register to vote site but 381 different election

:11:23.:11:26.

counter faces so there needs to be joining up which could prevent this.

:11:27.:11:32.

Middle-class dementia cases halt the growth of longer life. What is

:11:33.:11:42.

surprising about this, we are living longer and are now saying that is

:11:43.:11:45.

being reversed, possibly because of dementia. Everyone wants a long and

:11:46.:11:53.

happy life but at some point there has to be a limit of how long you

:11:54.:12:00.

can live. Read don't all want to be 120. One day we might be. God for

:12:01.:12:10.

bed. All the papers have pictures of young Prince George, a bit of

:12:11.:12:17.

reluctant Prince, reluctant in Warsaw, he didn't want to get off

:12:18.:12:23.

the plane. We're expecting this child at the age of three to stop

:12:24.:12:28.

performing, it's a tricky one. When you have children on a flight, that

:12:29.:12:33.

is one thing, I know Jason and others have concerns. If I was

:12:34.:12:39.

dressed like that I would be reluctant to appear in public. There

:12:40.:12:45.

is nothing with children were very wrong socks and I interviewed

:12:46.:12:51.

children's designer, who says it here there in an official

:12:52.:12:56.

engagement, be it a christening or Trooping the Colour, they cannot

:12:57.:13:00.

turn up in a grubby T-shirt and denims. But is it a bit young? It

:13:01.:13:09.

comes as a whole package, the same reason you take dresses for meetings

:13:10.:13:14.

and the Prime Minister doesn't turn up cameras. Are they too young to be

:13:15.:13:22.

taken on a royal trip like this macro iodate to young to be left at

:13:23.:13:26.

home while their parents go around the world? This is a trade visit and

:13:27.:13:35.

they are props. That is a bit of a republicanism. I think the Duchess

:13:36.:13:39.

doesn't want to leave them for a long time, they want to be hands-on

:13:40.:13:51.

parents. Thank you both, Camelot and Jason. That is it from The Papers.

:13:52.:13:54.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
