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

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Pippa Crerar, Political Correspondent

:00:17.:00:21.

at the London Evening Standard, and Dave Wooding, Political Editor

:00:22.:00:24.

The I picks up on the closing day of this round of Brexit talks,

:00:25.:00:34.

saying that the two sides can't agree an exit bill for the UK.

:00:35.:00:38.

The Guardian focuses on how free movement of people may continue

:00:39.:00:41.

Brexit also makes the Telegraph's front page - the paper says foreign

:00:42.:00:54.

criminals will be able to stay in the UK after the UK

:00:55.:00:57.

The Times also leads on Brexit - and also mentions the former

:00:58.:01:01.

American Football star OJ Simpson being granted parole.

:01:02.:01:03.

The Mirror runs with an investigation into the police

:01:04.:01:05.

questioning children caught carrying knives.

:01:06.:01:16.

The Daily Mail claims some BBC stars benefit by avoiding tax.

:01:17.:01:19.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on The Sun's front page,

:01:20.:01:22.

noting a child's practical joke during a photo op

:01:23.:01:24.

And the Express runs with a study claiming that snorning has been

:01:25.:01:30.

We will discuss some of those right now and let's kick off with the

:01:31.:01:46.

times and they have got OJ Simpson, a face from the past, 70 years old

:01:47.:01:53.

and just been given parole after serving nearly nine years. Acquitted

:01:54.:01:57.

for the murder of his wife but jailed for an armed robbery. It is a

:01:58.:02:04.

real-life soap opera going on for 22 years, 22 years since he was cleared

:02:05.:02:08.

of double murder of his ex-wife, and no prisoner appeared before the

:02:09.:02:16.

parole board were all the drama of the American legal system, all

:02:17.:02:22.

before the cameras. The case nine, ten years ago was of kidnap and

:02:23.:02:29.

using a deadly weapon and robbery involving memorabilia which he

:02:30.:02:33.

claimed was his own memorabilia that the man was attempting to steal. He

:02:34.:02:39.

served the sentence, nine out of 33 years and is now a reformed man, he

:02:40.:02:44.

says, but not without a flash of temper in front of the judges when

:02:45.:02:50.

he suggested that it wasn't his memorabilia that he was trying to

:02:51.:02:54.

get back. But for the younger generation that maybe don't remember

:02:55.:02:59.

the original trial and all the drama, there was a dramatisation

:03:00.:03:04.

recently on TV recreating the whole thing so he is familiar notary a lot

:03:05.:03:08.

of people. Many more so than just people who remember the first time

:03:09.:03:11.

round. The thing I really remember was that the trial was of course

:03:12.:03:18.

televised. In this country they are not, and it became almost a soap

:03:19.:03:23.

opera playing out, even though it was actually happening and that

:03:24.:03:29.

1.100 million people tuned in. That is a huge number and prime-time TV

:03:30.:03:37.

doesn't get that. Then one that was subsequently a civil case against

:03:38.:03:44.

him where ended up being asked to pay 33 million in the judgment to

:03:45.:03:49.

one of the victims' families, that wasn't on television, and the judge

:03:50.:03:53.

made the controversial decision that it should use artist sketches and

:03:54.:03:58.

once again back on our screens, and is it real? Actually happening. It

:03:59.:04:03.

is astonishing. And he was incredibly grateful and said thank

:04:04.:04:07.

you to the pro Commissioners. Let's go on to Brexit which is once again

:04:08.:04:15.

across most of the front pages including the Times. Very

:04:16.:04:19.

interesting story, looking like a briefing from the Treasury saying

:04:20.:04:24.

Theresa May is ready to offer EU citizens free movement to Britain

:04:25.:04:31.

for up to two years after Brexit and this is Philip Hammond's plans.

:04:32.:04:36.

Philip Hammond for some time has been pushing for the transitional

:04:37.:04:38.

arrangements or we don't suddenly reach a cliff edge at the end of

:04:39.:04:44.

talks. Key to this story and find this briefing is about free movement

:04:45.:04:52.

and the Times suggests that previously had Brexit ears and the

:04:53.:04:58.

Cabinet have been won over. It is interesting the language used, that

:04:59.:05:01.

now the Chancellor believes he has won them around. It indicates the

:05:02.:05:07.

briefing comes from the Treasury. He talks about borders being open for

:05:08.:05:12.

two years after Brexit. The Guardian talks about up to four years of free

:05:13.:05:20.

movement and later downgrades to three, so irrespective of how long

:05:21.:05:24.

it ends up being, the fact that Philip Hammond from this perspective

:05:25.:05:31.

seems to be coming at the vector is the remainders, the soft Brexit. A

:05:32.:05:36.

sort of struggle with the Cabinet between hard and soft Brexit, is

:05:37.:05:43.

that right? I think it is quite a positive move. We never expected is

:05:44.:05:49.

going to be all hard or soft Brexit. Hard and soft at the same time? We

:05:50.:05:54.

talk about a garden thriving in the new sunshine after Brexit. Some will

:05:55.:06:02.

flourish, some will die. What we are seeing is a bit of give and take so

:06:03.:06:07.

we are not going to get a complete end to free movement. Neither are we

:06:08.:06:11.

going to get it continuing but what we get is a bit of give and take. It

:06:12.:06:18.

shows the negotiations are starting to take shape. Very poetic analogy.

:06:19.:06:26.

The Telegraph also going on Brexit but with a different angle, foreign

:06:27.:06:33.

criminals staying after Brexit. This is based around one of the key

:06:34.:06:43.

elements discussed today. This was Britain's desire for every EU

:06:44.:06:49.

national resident in the UK to be granted this settled status, if they

:06:50.:06:54.

have been here for five years, a criminal record check, and the

:06:55.:06:58.

concern from the EU that actually that would undermine the rights, it

:06:59.:07:02.

would be unlawful to have a blanket criminal records check on everybody,

:07:03.:07:06.

and the angle the Telegraph has taken is that without this check,

:07:07.:07:12.

how would British authorities and all who was here and therefore

:07:13.:07:17.

foreign criminals who may have committed crimes overseas could be

:07:18.:07:21.

permitted to stay, which is one of the big controversial issues in the

:07:22.:07:25.

Brexit campaign, of Britain be gaining the power to be able to send

:07:26.:07:28.

people back to wherever they came from. And in the middle of all of

:07:29.:07:36.

this, Theresa May, we're hearing, going off hiking for three weeks,

:07:37.:07:42.

going on a three-week walking holiday to Italy and Switzerland

:07:43.:07:46.

with her husband Philip. It was when she was walking before that she

:07:47.:07:51.

changed her mind, famously, about having a general election, which

:07:52.:07:55.

didn't work out too well. The Cabinet will be hoping she doesn't

:07:56.:07:59.

make any big decisions on the Alps this time because that is what she

:08:00.:08:02.

did in Snowdonia, calling the election but resulted in losing the

:08:03.:08:09.

majority. She will be crossing the free border between Italy and

:08:10.:08:12.

Switzerland with her husband for three weeks. Speculation over who is

:08:13.:08:19.

minding the shop while she is away. Damian Green is first minute of

:08:20.:08:27.

state so during the summer last year Boris Johnson had a short term in

:08:28.:08:34.

charge. I can't see that's been repeated this time somehow. You'd

:08:35.:08:40.

editor was saying she is a dead woman walking not long ago but she

:08:41.:08:43.

is still hanging on. How do you rate her chances of prime ministerial

:08:44.:08:49.

survival at the moment? Not brilliant but every day she clings

:08:50.:08:52.

on makes it a little bit easier for her. The biggest things in her

:08:53.:08:58.

favour are Brexit negotiations and the fear of having somebody else

:08:59.:09:03.

take over that the talks end up falling apart one where another

:09:04.:09:08.

because somebody new comes in, and the more important one when it comes

:09:09.:09:10.

to the Conservative Party as there would be huge pressure for the new

:09:11.:09:15.

leader to holding your election and they are terrified it leads to

:09:16.:09:20.

Jeremy Corbyn. The daily Mirror has a front-page seeing cops quiz kids

:09:21.:09:26.

age four and this is an angle on the rising crime story we have been

:09:27.:09:33.

reporting all day. The matter have focused on on the numbers of people

:09:34.:09:39.

carrying knives, a big problem in this country, I am sure not that

:09:40.:09:44.

many aged four, but never the less they have highlighted the declining

:09:45.:09:51.

age. What I find more alarming is the overall rise in violent crime,

:09:52.:09:57.

up by 18%, sexual crimes by 40%, and public disorder by 39%. I would

:09:58.:10:04.

suggest Labour seize upon this if these figures, it before prime

:10:05.:10:08.

ministers questions yesterday. The cause of the issue of police

:10:09.:10:13.

numbers. The Conservatives cut police numbers because crime had

:10:14.:10:17.

been falling. My view personally is that if the signs are that crime is

:10:18.:10:20.

rising then you have to increase numbers. And of course Labour won't

:10:21.:10:26.

let the Conservatives forget that the Prime Minister was Home

:10:27.:10:28.

Secretary had a long period and were substantial changes such as her

:10:29.:10:33.

shift on the government stance on stop and search which lots of people

:10:34.:10:36.

have suggested might have contributed to a rise in more young

:10:37.:10:41.

people carrying knives, emboldened because they are less likely to be

:10:42.:10:45.

stopped by the police. We have also got the Guardian was an interesting

:10:46.:10:49.

story about the Muslim mother launching legal action against her

:10:50.:10:53.

daughter's school after being told she could not way they face veil

:10:54.:10:58.

while visiting the premises. The story was around the other week

:10:59.:11:05.

about face veils. This is quite an interesting one because it is not a

:11:06.:11:09.

teacher wearing the veil, it is the mother of the pupil, and she has

:11:10.:11:13.

basically been told, you're not welcome wearing a face veil. I

:11:14.:11:17.

suppose the school has a right to do it but it seems a little harsh of it

:11:18.:11:23.

as a mother. We are not secular France, we respect the religious

:11:24.:11:26.

right to wear what you want and it was a school premises but she is not

:11:27.:11:35.

in a position of authority. This is Holland Park School. The socialist

:11:36.:11:41.

Eastern. All eyes, the Guardian very interested in what is going on, so

:11:42.:11:49.

we will watch how it all plays out. The last front pages the Daily

:11:50.:11:53.

Express and they are seeing snoring can put people at greater risk of

:11:54.:11:58.

developing dementia, researchers have discovered. Scientists found

:11:59.:12:00.

that those who suffer difficulties breathing during their sleep at

:12:01.:12:06.

higher risk of brain function decline. It seems that snoring is

:12:07.:12:13.

linked to the brain's inability to believe is while one is sleeping, it

:12:14.:12:18.

says about a fifth the people have this issue. It is an early warning

:12:19.:12:27.

system. I guess this sort of scientific discovery gives

:12:28.:12:29.

scientists and medical professionals more chance of finding ways to

:12:30.:12:35.

tackle this complaint. It is interesting the number of front

:12:36.:12:40.

pages you see on Alzheimer's and dementia as obviously the incidence

:12:41.:12:44.

of them are increasing as the population is getting older. Every

:12:45.:12:46.

day there is a story about a potential breakthrough. Yesterday we

:12:47.:12:51.

had stories about how you should exercise your brain more, do Spanish

:12:52.:12:56.

crossword puzzles, so it is something people are interested more

:12:57.:13:00.

in as they see the scale. And a lot of advice on how to avoid it, more

:13:01.:13:06.

exercise kind of thing. It is good the to-do has gone as it has on many

:13:07.:13:10.

things in life and people are less ashamed of it talking mental

:13:11.:13:14.

illness. And a little bird tells me you have a bit of a snoring issue?

:13:15.:13:20.

So I am told. I have to lie on my side. Mrs Wooding has communicated

:13:21.:13:28.

that! The nation needs to know these kinds of things! I am sure it is not

:13:29.:13:30.

to load. the front pages of the papers online

:13:31.:13:35.

on the BBC News website. It's all there for you -

:13:36.:13:40.

seven days a week. And if you miss the programme any

:13:41.:13:44.

evening you can watch it Good evening. A fairly unsettled

:13:45.:14:12.

outlook for the next few days with low pressure moving in. We saw some

:14:13.:14:15.

heavy showers during Thursday and here
