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

:00:21.:00:23.

With me are Lucy Fisher, Senior Political Correspondent

:00:24.:00:26.

at the Times, and the journalist and broadcaster Aasmah Mir.

:00:27.:00:29.

Tomorrow's Financial Times leads on BMW's decision

:00:30.:00:34.

to build its new electric Mini in the UK - despite Brexit.

:00:35.:00:42.

Let us take our Charlie home to die - the plea of parents Connie Yates

:00:43.:00:45.

and Chris Gard is top story in the Metro.

:00:46.:00:48.

On the front page of tomorrow's Daily Telegraph -

:00:49.:00:50.

a possible ban on diesel cars, plus a snap from the first

:00:51.:00:53.

day of Theresa's May's summer holiday in Italy.

:00:54.:00:55.

The Express is hopeful about future trade with the US -

:00:56.:00:57.

after President Trump hinted at a "very big and exciting" deal

:00:58.:01:00.

The Times also sounds the death knell for the diesel car -

:01:01.:01:06.

and has the story that milk can now be branded "inhumane"

:01:07.:01:09.

by vegan campaigners after a ruling on advertising.

:01:10.:01:12.

In the Guardian, the claim by Labour that more than 600,000

:01:13.:01:15.

pupils are being taught by unqualified teachers.

:01:16.:01:20.

And in the Daily Mail - once again, the war on cars

:01:21.:01:23.

that burn fossil fuels, to help cut pollution.

:01:24.:01:30.

That is the top story. The times, diesel is banned, the end of the

:01:31.:01:40.

diesel and petrol car. We knew this was coming, but there is a date

:01:41.:01:47.

here. Yes, 2014, following from Emmanuel Macron, the President of

:01:48.:01:50.

France, making a similar pledge this morning, the UK size from 2014, no

:01:51.:01:55.

new diesel or petrol cars will be sold and the switch to electric will

:01:56.:01:59.

take place with a view to all cars being zero emission by 2015. Have

:02:00.:02:06.

you got a diesel car, Aasmah? Petrol? Yes. But by 2040... You will

:02:07.:02:11.

have got an electric one anyway. Just doing maths in my head. I am

:02:12.:02:16.

sure by Ben, yes, we have a date now. We did have a situation where

:02:17.:02:23.

we were encouraged to get diesel cars by the then Labour government.

:02:24.:02:29.

But we have been given quite a lot of notice in terms of any

:02:30.:02:33.

inconvenience it might cause individual consumers. Clearly, we

:02:34.:02:39.

are talking about diesel and petrol cars causing environmental problems

:02:40.:02:44.

reaching EU emission standards. Quite a serious thing that has to be

:02:45.:02:51.

handled. And it is not just a ban by 2040. There might be some councils

:02:52.:02:55.

given the power to impose levies and diesel vehicles on particular areas

:02:56.:03:02.

and roads. The suggestion is the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan will do

:03:03.:03:06.

something along those lines for diesel cars quite soon, next year, I

:03:07.:03:12.

think. Yes, what is interesting is Michael Gove the environment

:03:13.:03:16.

Secretary has thrown this town, the power chain to local councils and

:03:17.:03:21.

air quality campaigners are not happy, they wanted central

:03:22.:03:25.

government calling for toxic taxes to be imposed or introduce a diesel

:03:26.:03:30.

scrapped to which the scrappage scheme sooner to take diesel cars

:03:31.:03:35.

off the road, so interesting to see the fallout. A lot of people took

:03:36.:03:41.

the hint from the Government. The past governments. That diesel was OK

:03:42.:03:45.

to use and that is why manufacturers made so many of these cars. Now

:03:46.:03:51.

everybody has to get rid of them. That story is on pretty much all the

:03:52.:03:55.

front pages, a lot of them. The financial Times now. Aasmah. The

:03:56.:04:03.

electric Mini to be built in the UK despite eight Desha Brexit, is vote

:04:04.:04:08.

of confidence in the industrial strategy of the Government. Greg

:04:09.:04:15.

Clark, Business Secretary, this is a fantastic story for him and the

:04:16.:04:20.

Government. And for the country. Specifically for the Government,

:04:21.:04:27.

when they are trying to push through what the country voted for, Brexit.

:04:28.:04:33.

This company have said in the past that they might not have done what

:04:34.:04:40.

they have done and cited the work in the UK because of the uncertainty

:04:41.:04:44.

caused by Brexit and may have caused the minds to change, we are not told

:04:45.:04:52.

why, but that is a triumph for the Brexit supporters who say it is not

:04:53.:04:58.

all doom and gloom, it is not about uncertainty, you could argue that

:04:59.:05:01.

this is because where else really might they have done this? Talk of

:05:02.:05:06.

the Netherlands, but this is a very specialist workforce, with a great

:05:07.:05:10.

deal of specialist knowledge. You could argue it was always going to

:05:11.:05:18.

come to the UK or the UK. It is a great coup for the folk in Oxford.

:05:19.:05:24.

They are highly skilled and a great workforce. Having said that, they

:05:25.:05:30.

already make the Mini there. And the real test is to the Government's

:05:31.:05:33.

industrial strategy regarding Brexit is next year when Peugeot and

:05:34.:05:38.

Vauxhall Astra decide whether they will make new models. That is right.

:05:39.:05:44.

The Government is keen to stress that with BMW, they did not look for

:05:45.:05:50.

any issuance is like Nissan and Toyota and I think it is interesting

:05:51.:05:57.

it does indicate the Government's decision to focus on the car

:05:58.:06:02.

industry. Amazon also confirming they will hire 450 technology staff.

:06:03.:06:07.

There are other crucial decisions down the line and I don't think Greg

:06:08.:06:13.

Clark can sit easy just because of this decision. The Express happy,

:06:14.:06:22.

Trump trade joy for Britain, Donald Trump saying he is working on a

:06:23.:06:26.

good, exciting, very good deal, very good deal! That was terrible! That

:06:27.:06:32.

was terrible! I cannot let that pass! Not as terrible as the trade

:06:33.:06:36.

deal coming down the pipe, according to Mr Trump! Great joy for the

:06:37.:06:44.

Express that backed the Brexit side of things. Can we believe it? It

:06:45.:06:52.

comes from Donald Trump, in a tweet, at three a:m.! Precisely! Along with

:06:53.:07:00.

the Mini News, exceptionally good day for the governed. Donald Trump

:07:01.:07:04.

prides himself on his unpredictability. His double bass.

:07:05.:07:11.

The rhetoric is strong and punchy, but as we realise, that does not

:07:12.:07:16.

necessarily mean we should take it completely at face value. And people

:07:17.:07:21.

like Vince Cable himself a former Business Secretary as well as being

:07:22.:07:25.

Liberal Democrat leader, he warns we need to take these remarks with a

:07:26.:07:30.

pinch of salt. Aasmah, America is trying to sort out a trade deal with

:07:31.:07:33.

the European Union. Much bigger block, loads of consumers. Massive

:07:34.:07:40.

market. They have the sort that out first before they turn to others.

:07:41.:07:43.

Yes, absolutely, that is very time-consuming. Point about the

:07:44.:07:48.

trade deals, he said very exciting trade deal on its way, you have to

:07:49.:07:54.

wait until March 2019 before it can start and how many years after that

:07:55.:07:58.

will it take? I have no knowledge of these processes are but I can that

:07:59.:08:07.

they are very lengthy. We are very much second in line. When it comes

:08:08.:08:11.

to negotiating trade deals. I hope we get a fantastic trade deal with

:08:12.:08:15.

the US, but it is a long way off. Yes, but it could well happen and

:08:16.:08:20.

Trump says it is going to happen. Shocking decline found in sperm

:08:21.:08:28.

count of Western men. The numbers are really fascinating. An overall

:08:29.:08:36.

drop of 52%. They have knocked over 40 years at 180 studies and 40,000

:08:37.:08:44.

men, over 40 years. And it is catastrophic. Clearly, there are

:08:45.:08:52.

questions about parenthood, except. It is the factors that are

:08:53.:08:59.

potentially viewing this decline. Smoking, stress. Obesity. I don't

:09:00.:09:06.

mean to say... It sounds trivial, but they say wearing tight and were

:09:07.:09:13.

apparently really does... Do not look at me like that, allegedly! It

:09:14.:09:18.

can affect your sperm count. Spandex does not help the sperm. Well, it is

:09:19.:09:27.

incredibly worrying. 20 people will have a different take on this and

:09:28.:09:30.

they will say you do not necessarily always need a man to procreate. But

:09:31.:09:39.

these figures are pretty catastrophic. A very authoritative

:09:40.:09:46.

study as well, 180 studies, over 40 years. Good research coming yes. In

:09:47.:09:52.

the longer term, the ramifications, they are huge, bearing in mind we

:09:53.:09:56.

already have a falling birth rate in a lot of Western countries. Yes,

:09:57.:09:59.

incredibly worrying story. And I am glued to the handmaid's Tale, which

:10:00.:10:14.

leads to a crisis in people having children. So bizarrely relevant

:10:15.:10:21.

fictionally, but we could be heading toward it. It does not surprise me

:10:22.:10:26.

that modern life is toxic. And obesity and stress and smoking and

:10:27.:10:33.

chemicals, pesticides. Spandex! Yes, no wonder, perhaps! 60% rise in and

:10:34.:10:40.

qualified teachers, says Labour Party. Yes, this is a Labour

:10:41.:10:51.

analysis of the figures. They showed teachers in state schools have had

:10:52.:10:55.

no guaranteed training or safeguarding children, controlling a

:10:56.:11:02.

class or abduction -- of adapting teaching to different standards, a

:11:03.:11:09.

damning analysis. The article, Aasmah, pointing to the decision to

:11:10.:11:13.

boost free schools. Where perhaps you could have teachers who did not

:11:14.:11:18.

have the kind of qualifications that many people might expect. This was

:11:19.:11:22.

introduced by Michael Gove, who was Education Secretary. You said that

:11:23.:11:27.

you could use and qualified teachers and that has been expanded. These

:11:28.:11:33.

figures, state funded schools, clearly it is something that has

:11:34.:11:37.

been set expanded the state funded schools. Having read the article, a

:11:38.:11:42.

unqualified teacher to me would suggest somebody who is not

:11:43.:11:45.

qualified academically, but we are not talking about that. We are

:11:46.:11:49.

talking about the other important stuff like the safeguarding

:11:50.:11:53.

children, which sounds like training courses perhaps that teachers need.

:11:54.:11:59.

Not sure why, it sounds bizarre that somebody who is deemed to be

:12:00.:12:04.

unqualified as a teacher should be teaching in a school. It does not

:12:05.:12:08.

sound acceptable to me. That is on the front of the Guardian. The Daily

:12:09.:12:13.

Mail. Never mind spandex! What about pink linen? Oh dear, our fashion

:12:14.:12:21.

editor's verdict on Theresa May's pink holiday dress. I find it quite

:12:22.:12:27.

a striking image, you rarely see the Prime Minister in a candy floss

:12:28.:12:32.

colour, a casual shirt stress. I find it interesting because I like

:12:33.:12:37.

the Prime Minister tends to wear things on holiday I would never

:12:38.:12:42.

normally wear! We all do! I don't! No, I do! I usually wear spandex on

:12:43.:12:49.

holiday! Can you stop saying spandex now?! It is either Donald Trump is

:12:50.:12:58.

spandex. Initially, I am thinking she gets a lot of criticism for what

:12:59.:13:02.

she wears, but David Cameron when he went on holiday was always getting

:13:03.:13:07.

flack for what he was wearing. And it is about how much it cost. We

:13:08.:13:11.

have to be told it was ?26 from a High Street retailer called Next

:13:12.:13:16.

which many viewers will have heard of. Other High Street retailers are

:13:17.:13:24.

available! The Daily Mail says, Theresa May in a ?26 baby pink dress

:13:25.:13:30.

that showed off her pale and noticeably shiny legs. No need for

:13:31.:13:35.

that! Daily Mail, thank you so much for lowering the tone! Anstey two

:13:36.:13:41.

for raising the tone. Thank you very much indeed.

:13:42.:13:43.

Some of the stories behind the headlines.
