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

:00:14.:00:17.

With me are the former pensions minister Baroness Ros Altmann

:00:18.:00:35.

The Metro leads with the funeral of the youngest victim

:00:36.:00:39.

of the Manchester bombing eight-year-old Saffie Roussos.

:00:40.:00:41.

Britain may "walk away from EU talks" according to the Express

:00:42.:00:43.

minister warn if Brussell refuse to back down on the rule

:00:44.:00:46.

The Daily Star features the wildfires on the French Riveria

:00:47.:00:52.

where 10,000 people have fled the terrifying blaze.

:00:53.:00:57.

The Telegraph leads with the story that GP's are being urged to stop

:00:58.:01:00.

telling patients they must finish all their prescribed course

:01:01.:01:02.

of tablets as it is driving up drug resistance.

:01:03.:01:06.

The Mail claims that judges arebeing accused

:01:07.:01:11.

And finally The Guardian leads with the government's new clean air

:01:12.:01:20.

policy which is says is being branded as "weak

:01:21.:01:22.

and inadequate" by the leaders of eight heavily polluted cities.

:01:23.:01:31.

Let's dip into some of them. But speed we will kick off with and what

:01:32.:01:38.

Donald Trump is saying about transgender people and services.

:01:39.:01:42.

This is astonishing, and not surprising that a number of people

:01:43.:01:46.

in America are saying, how can policy be made this way? He's the

:01:47.:01:50.

commander-in-chief but you cannot just say, I am going to decide who

:01:51.:01:56.

serves in the Army, just me, one person. Basically, what Donald

:01:57.:01:59.

Trumps seems to be saying is that if you are a transgender person somehow

:02:00.:02:04.

you are not fit to serve in the US military. I note that one of the

:02:05.:02:12.

Navy SEALs who served 20 years he was in the group that went to rescue

:02:13.:02:17.

the enlarged and, I believe, or in that same type of unit won the

:02:18.:02:21.

bronze start, the purple heart, he is saying -- they are saying let's

:02:22.:02:33.

meanie that President straight -- says let me meet this person face to

:02:34.:02:44.

face. What is interesting is that in this case he is pandering to the

:02:45.:02:49.

conservative Republican base, remember elsewhere despite what

:02:50.:02:52.

Trump has been tweeting from three o'clock every morning his policy so

:02:53.:02:57.

far have not worked, Obamacare is still there. It has not been

:02:58.:03:01.

removed, in this case the Republican, conservatives have

:03:02.:03:06.

always said that medical costs and disruption, that is the reason he

:03:07.:03:12.

has given. To a certain extent by firing this off without working out

:03:13.:03:17.

how the policy would work he is I think saying, don't worry I'm still

:03:18.:03:22.

doing things that will please you. And there are transgender people in

:03:23.:03:26.

the services now who don't know what will happen. And what, do they get

:03:27.:03:34.

dismissed from tomorrow, who knows? He is actually said that transgender

:03:35.:03:37.

individuals can serve in any capacity, what will they do, sacked

:03:38.:03:43.

the being transgender? Added that work? Also, he says we must focus on

:03:44.:03:48.

overwhelming and decisive victory the implication being that you

:03:49.:03:51.

cannot have victory with transgender people. I think that is why

:03:52.:03:55.

Christian Black is saying, let me meet you and tell you I'm not

:03:56.:04:00.

worthy. If that happens no doubt it will get some coverage. The Daily

:04:01.:04:06.

Express says that Britain is ready to quit EU talks. This relates to

:04:07.:04:12.

the rights of EU citizens in this country after Brexit and of course

:04:13.:04:17.

British citizens in the EU and what the European Commission is saying is

:04:18.:04:22.

that there is dispute about it, it has to go to some mechanism to be

:04:23.:04:27.

sorted out. And the European Court of Justice should be that and the

:04:28.:04:33.

problem here is that you have to have some sort of arbitration

:04:34.:04:37.

procedure and some sort of procedure and one can easily see that there

:04:38.:04:41.

will be questioned people not being allowed to do something, wanting to

:04:42.:04:46.

go into some sort legal think will stop you cannot just say we issued

:04:47.:04:50.

an order and you can't challenge it, that is not very the way our system

:04:51.:04:55.

works. And mysterious senior minister. I wonder who it is,

:04:56.:04:59.

couldn't possibly be a Brexitier audit. It is not just the citizens

:05:00.:05:06.

it is but trains and nuclear, if you're part of an international

:05:07.:05:13.

agreement, the idea that your courts can only arbitrate and it seems

:05:14.:05:18.

strange. British judges sit on the European Court of Justice this isn't

:05:19.:05:23.

a European stitch up. I think there is a bit of an accession with this

:05:24.:05:27.

European Court of Justice issue, clearly we want to make sure that in

:05:28.:05:32.

most areas are courts make our laws and govern what we do, but when we

:05:33.:05:39.

are involved with international agreement on a global landscape it

:05:40.:05:43.

seems difficult to tell people that actually, so you are courts are the

:05:44.:05:52.

only ones that we trust. How do solve pursuits? They're talking

:05:53.:05:58.

about international arbitration what is the difference? On the front of

:05:59.:06:02.

the Telegraph, this is intriguing we have all been told to finish the

:06:03.:06:06.

book was on antibiotics but now suddenly apparently not. That seems

:06:07.:06:12.

to be the view of the number of scientists who suggest that the

:06:13.:06:16.

resistance that is causing such a problem to antibiotics and the

:06:17.:06:20.

concerns that, at some point, antibiotic simply won't work and

:06:21.:06:24.

people might die of diseases we have not got any cure for, the typical

:06:25.:06:29.

advice is, even if you feel better after a day or two, usually you

:06:30.:06:34.

will, the eventual... If you stop the antibiotics then you will

:06:35.:06:37.

perhaps cause another infection which becomes resistant and they

:06:38.:06:44.

will not BO to treat it. There seems to be a split opinion the Chief

:06:45.:06:49.

medical officers are saying, let's not change our advice. Most people

:06:50.:06:56.

will be confused and it did seem logical, to me, that we should

:06:57.:07:00.

finish the course, the courses typically not very long. The figures

:07:01.:07:10.

the newspaper has is that 12,000 people buy of antibiotic resistant

:07:11.:07:13.

every year in this country, more than from breast cancer. And that

:07:14.:07:20.

figure was going up. The point is that the use of antibiotics right

:07:21.:07:25.

through really dates back to, Alexander Fleming discover of

:07:26.:07:29.

penicillin saying use it and use as much as possible. Probably, things

:07:30.:07:34.

have to move on, to a certain extent, there was a split opinion

:07:35.:07:38.

but I think we do need to discuss and look at this issue. I think that

:07:39.:07:43.

is what we will be doing but at the moment they tend to on the side of

:07:44.:07:47.

taking it longer rather than starting to see which sort of makes

:07:48.:07:51.

sense to me but let's see what further evidence shows. Also on the

:07:52.:07:55.

Telegraph. Driving electric cars well with the actress to come from?

:07:56.:08:03.

That is the whole question how will regenerate the increased

:08:04.:08:05.

electricity, the Telegraph saying it would require 10,000 new wind

:08:06.:08:08.

turbines because we will have to do have something like 26 million...

:08:09.:08:15.

You look unconvinced by this argument. The Earle I have to

:08:16.:08:20.

confess I have an electric car and I love it. -- I have to confess. They

:08:21.:08:28.

are saying that if everybody has the charge that electric car at Pete

:08:29.:08:32.

Colley may not have enough power, but most people, and certainly the

:08:33.:08:38.

way I drive and people I know who have electric cars to live is that

:08:39.:08:42.

you charge the car overnight, you planned the grid so that people will

:08:43.:08:47.

come home and the electricity will be fed out over a period of time so

:08:48.:08:52.

it uses the electricity while you are asleep. Who will monitor that,

:08:53.:09:00.

the European Court of Justice? It can be sorted out by the great.

:09:01.:09:07.

These things need to be planned. The story here also has a point that the

:09:08.:09:10.

policy has been announced but we have not had the details of how the

:09:11.:09:14.

casting would work out, to a certain extent that the valid we need more

:09:15.:09:19.

infrastructure, charging points around the country and so on. The

:09:20.:09:25.

Times, not the front foot page two, this is care homes and top-up fees

:09:26.:09:32.

the people who would normally qualify via their council to be

:09:33.:09:37.

looked after in a care home. This is another aspect of our care crisis,

:09:38.:09:41.

our social system is in milk down and not fit for purpose. -- is in

:09:42.:09:47.

meltdown. What is happening here is that people are qualifying accounts

:09:48.:09:50.

will help, the council is paying for them to be in a care home, however

:09:51.:09:56.

the council is not paying enough. So, the care home is coming to the

:09:57.:10:00.

family and saying "Well, we need to ask you to pay. " Either the

:10:01.:10:10.

relative to stay there all the wing or the council will only pay for a

:10:11.:10:14.

home that is further away if you want your love once lived near you,

:10:15.:10:20.

of course most families would that. Then, actually our home will be more

:10:21.:10:23.

expensive than the council the grid. This is a big issue that is only

:10:24.:10:29.

going to get worse. It is part of the bigger problem. According to

:10:30.:10:33.

this story some of the care homes are asking for more money which they

:10:34.:10:37.

can only ask on a voluntary basis and then telling the people, don't

:10:38.:10:43.

tell the council. Outrages. This is part of the whole wide issue, had we

:10:44.:10:50.

look after elderly people who need care and hard we provide them. This

:10:51.:10:54.

is an issue we really have not discussed as a nation. There is no

:10:55.:10:59.

money set aside. We need have a real discussion because in a sense of

:11:00.:11:05.

family structure that in a the past looked after older people. Councils

:11:06.:11:12.

are not paying enough to look after people at a decent level and that is

:11:13.:11:17.

something that cannot be right in a civilised society. Time one more

:11:18.:11:21.

let's give the Daily Mail, an extraordinary image. People sleeping

:11:22.:11:25.

on the beat in the South of France but not doing so because they want

:11:26.:11:30.

to but because they have to do. Yes, and these are the sort of pictures

:11:31.:11:34.

you get from Australia in the summer. You do not expect them from

:11:35.:11:42.

the south of France. This is quite an astonishing scene, something from

:11:43.:11:45.

out of the movie. Look at how close the smile is -- look at how close

:11:46.:11:50.

the fire is. They've been breaching the three days, people have to leave

:11:51.:11:54.

their homes and if you are in a campsite you will not stay there,

:11:55.:11:58.

you do not want to burn... At the end of the day, you would rather be

:11:59.:12:08.

safe and sleep on the beach. The Riviera is quite nice. Not in those

:12:09.:12:15.

circumstances. Batters it, thank you very much indeed. -- that is it.

:12:16.:12:19.

Don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online

:12:20.:12:30.

evening you can watch it later on BBC iPlayer.

:12:31.:12:33.

Thank you Baroness Ros Altmann and Mihir Bose.

:12:34.:12:35.

Good evening, where the day of two halves the most of you today. One of

:12:36.:12:52.

our weather watchers summed up nicely, the
