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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are Rachel Cunliffe, Comment and Features Editor at City

:00:19.:00:22.

AM and John Crowley, Editor in Chief of the International

:00:23.:00:24.

Welcome, thank you for giving up your Friday night. The front pages

:00:25.:00:35.

tomorrow. The Daily Mail leads

:00:36.:00:35.

on the death of Charlie Gard. It says the baby, whose battle

:00:36.:00:38.

for survival captured hearts around the world, lost his fight for life

:00:39.:00:44.

exactly one A picture of Charlie's dad

:00:45.:00:46.

with the baby dominates the front The paper says both of Charlie

:00:47.:00:52.

parents were at his side as his life The Daily Express reports

:00:53.:01:00.

on the fears that Brexit could be delayed after the Chancellor

:01:01.:01:04.

announced plans for a two-stage The Daily Telegraph says MPs have

:01:05.:01:07.

warned that the next general election will be a "second

:01:08.:01:14.

referendum" on Brexit if Philip Hammond gets his way

:01:15.:01:16.

on a lengthy transition. The Guardian carries an interview

:01:17.:01:26.

with Sadiq Khan saying Labour could still hot Brexit.

:01:27.:01:27.

and teenagers are being paid by criminals to hide or launder

:01:28.:01:31.

The I claims there's been a cover up on the high speed 2 rail project.

:01:32.:01:36.

It says the Department for Transport has censored a report on billion

:01:37.:01:39.

pound scheme amid fears over rising costs and big delays.

:01:40.:01:46.

And the Sun leads on the death of Charlie Gard.

:01:47.:01:49.

It says his devastated mum announced that "our beautiful

:01:50.:01:51.

And that will be begin, but with the very sad but expected news that

:01:52.:02:06.

Charlie Garde had died, released from hospital earlier in the day and

:02:07.:02:09.

gone to the hospice where his life support was switched off. The daily

:02:10.:02:16.

Mirror has an amazing photo of this little boy, just a few weeks old.

:02:17.:02:21.

Our beautiful little boy has gone. It is a very different to in the

:02:22.:02:25.

papers are taking after all that acrimony over recent months. It is a

:02:26.:02:30.

campaign that has really affected everyone in the nation and become,

:02:31.:02:39.

got into the heart of every family. It is over, the court cases are

:02:40.:02:44.

over, they battle, and one would hope the acrimony is finally over.

:02:45.:02:50.

Both of these papers, especially the Daily Mail which kicked off the

:02:51.:02:54.

campaign, both these papers are taking a sombre and respectful tone

:02:55.:02:58.

which is all you can do in this situation. If we look at how the

:02:59.:03:02.

Daily Mail is reporting it it says rest in peace. No photograph. Many

:03:03.:03:09.

people paying tribute and thankfully the tone of it is much more

:03:10.:03:16.

respectful. It feels restraint now, it is not the moment for

:03:17.:03:19.

recriminations and we have gone through all the arguments back and

:03:20.:03:25.

forth. Tonight it is about the parents, about Connie and Chris.

:03:26.:03:28.

They have gone to the ends of the earth fighting for their child and

:03:29.:03:32.

they now have to think about how they are going to bury him now. It

:03:33.:03:38.

feels that everyone has wanted to take a piece of it, whether you are

:03:39.:03:45.

up even or the president of the United States, everyone has had a

:03:46.:03:50.

comment, but today it feels like that is a much more restrained

:03:51.:03:56.

element to this. And the agony that his parents have been through. When

:03:57.:04:00.

he was born apparently healthy and then they just saw his health seep

:04:01.:04:08.

away over months and less and less they seemed to be able to do for

:04:09.:04:13.

him. It is absolutely tragic and particularly tragic that it became a

:04:14.:04:18.

battle of the authorities versus parents and that is why it became

:04:19.:04:24.

such an emotive issue. Nobody wants to think about that decision being

:04:25.:04:28.

made but the fact is that in the UK every single person in the debate

:04:29.:04:31.

was trying to do what they thought was the right thing for the child

:04:32.:04:36.

and that is a real difference in how it is reported here and perhaps how

:04:37.:04:41.

it has played elsewhere in the world, in particular in America

:04:42.:04:46.

where it became highly politicised. I think there were some who were

:04:47.:04:50.

deliberately misunderstanding how the British health care and legal

:04:51.:04:54.

system works in order to make a political point about government

:04:55.:04:59.

interference. The truth is that everyone from the parents to the

:05:00.:05:04.

courts to the doctors were trying to do their best and that got lost a

:05:05.:05:09.

little bit. There were moments of flashes of anger from the parents on

:05:10.:05:12.

the steps of the court and moments of emotion as well, but it was the

:05:13.:05:19.

way they carried themselves, with dignity, and the logic they brought

:05:20.:05:26.

to it. So there was the emotion but when they spoke they spoke very

:05:27.:05:30.

articulately and expansively. You could go, yes, I agree with that

:05:31.:05:34.

from a logical point of view as well. So tonight they are just

:05:35.:05:41.

mourning their 11-month-old baby who passed away a week before he turned

:05:42.:05:48.

one-year-old. On the Telegraph, election will be a second poll on

:05:49.:05:52.

the EU, warning the domain camp will use the vote to water down Brexit F

:05:53.:05:59.

Philip Hammond gets his way on a lengthy transition. It begs the

:06:00.:06:03.

election when the election will be, if we will even be in transition by

:06:04.:06:08.

then. We think there will be an election sooner rather than later

:06:09.:06:13.

but this briefing, wasn't it supposed to stop? When these people

:06:14.:06:20.

go on their summer holidays. But clearly, one little took from it,

:06:21.:06:23.

Boris Johnson, currently on a working trip on as Julia has not

:06:24.:06:29.

spoken publicly in support of the Chancellor's stands and is likely to

:06:30.:06:32.

be the biggest Cabinet opponent of a lengthy transition. It doesn't

:06:33.:06:38.

reveal the sources. I picked on that line at as well because just before

:06:39.:06:42.

it says that Philip Hammond has won the backing of Brexit years

:06:43.:06:47.

including Michael Gove and Liam Fox, two heavyweight Brexit campaigners.

:06:48.:06:56.

It is very much suggesting some of the opposition is coming from the

:06:57.:07:00.

Foreign Office. It doesn't go so far as to say that. I love the headline,

:07:01.:07:06.

election will be the second Paul on the EU. I got such a sense of deja

:07:07.:07:11.

vu because I feel like I read that before the election we just hit.

:07:12.:07:16.

What we learn from that election is that every side, whether it is the

:07:17.:07:23.

Conservatives of or Labour, remain or leave, are taking the sign that

:07:24.:07:27.

they are connected whatever it was they wanted. It will continue on

:07:28.:07:33.

being so. The Maltese Prime Minister is saying that from the first time

:07:34.:07:37.

he thinks Brexit won't happen. All options are up for grabs. There is a

:07:38.:07:43.

sense of chaos continuing. Talking about the summer holidays and going

:07:44.:07:49.

away for a little while, but of course it isn't, and briefing is

:07:50.:07:53.

continuing. I will be cynical and suggest he may have made a comment

:07:54.:07:56.

like that because now we all know his name and we know he is the Prime

:07:57.:07:59.

Minister of multi which we may not have known before now. Let's look at

:08:00.:08:05.

the Financial Times, what is going on in the White House. Donald Trump

:08:06.:08:10.

lashes out. The attempt to try to repeal Obamacare. The Republicans

:08:11.:08:15.

have been trying for seven years and have failed again. They have got

:08:16.:08:19.

other things to be getting on with. This has been a week of chaos in the

:08:20.:08:23.

White House and that is saying something but we have had multiple

:08:24.:08:27.

votes on the health care bill and on Tuesday it looked like it was going

:08:28.:08:30.

for Rod in the early hours of this morning, John McCain and two other

:08:31.:08:38.

Republicans voted against, but we have also had bigger news this

:08:39.:08:43.

evening just breaking, that Donald Trump has fired his chief of staff,

:08:44.:08:59.

Reince Piebus -- Reince Priebus. That has come just a week after he

:09:00.:09:03.

fired his press secretary, Sean Spicer. We know how voluntary that

:09:04.:09:09.

was! Soap all change at the White House. And also Scaramucci chose

:09:10.:09:18.

some choice language that can't be repeated even after the watershed

:09:19.:09:22.

but basically called out Reince Priebus as a leak and Reince Priebus

:09:23.:09:26.

was the link as well with the Senate, with Washington, so that was

:09:27.:09:33.

lost on Obamacare. Perhaps he has taken the hit for that as well. But

:09:34.:09:38.

again we talk about chaos over here in the summer holidays but it is

:09:39.:09:40.

nothing compared to the United States. If you are a journalist with

:09:41.:09:46.

a wonderful time to be alive. What exciting times! All you need to know

:09:47.:09:50.

about Scaramucci is that he had this week a very long phone conversation

:09:51.:09:54.

with a journalist in which he said all kinds of things on the record

:09:55.:09:58.

about the various colleagues, one of whom has now been fired, and then

:09:59.:10:03.

win the journalists printed the article he then lashed out at the

:10:04.:10:08.

fact that it was printed. You think if you are communications director

:10:09.:10:10.

you would know not to say those kinds of things on the record to a

:10:11.:10:14.

journalist. One of your correspondence was saying I am never

:10:15.:10:17.

going to talk to journalists again. It is your job. He is like this

:10:18.:10:23.

cartoon character, an Italian-American with aviator

:10:24.:10:27.

glasses, looking like somebody straight out of the Sopranos and he

:10:28.:10:31.

is quite macho and all these guys are quite macho as well and you just

:10:32.:10:36.

wonder whether Donald Trump is planning to let them fight it out

:10:37.:10:39.

amongst themselves. We wonder what will happen to Steve Brine and then

:10:40.:10:43.

because he had again some choice words to say about him. He will be

:10:44.:10:48.

looking over his shoulder and Scaramucci in his interview with

:10:49.:10:52.

Emily Maitlis said I don't backstab, I front stab. What did you make of

:10:53.:10:59.

that and how he treated Emily? In terms of her personal space he got

:11:00.:11:02.

up close and personal, what did you think? I thought she was very

:11:03.:11:10.

patient. Handled it very well. As she always does. The Times, gang to

:11:11.:11:16.

speak teenagers to launder crime cash. How are they recruiting young

:11:17.:11:21.

people? Outside the school gates and in social media. I got this image,

:11:22.:11:28.

you know how they always warned you after school not to talk to people

:11:29.:11:33.

offering drugs and sweets, now they are offering as little as ?50 to

:11:34.:11:39.

transfer a much larger sums of dirty money. When I was a teenager ?50 was

:11:40.:11:45.

a lot of money. They are seducing teenagers with this easy money and

:11:46.:11:48.

then laundering it through their bank accounts, and then potentially

:11:49.:11:53.

threatening violence if they try to stop. There is a plea for parents to

:11:54.:11:58.

monitor their children's bank accounts. We were having a

:11:59.:12:01.

conversation trying to remember at what age you could get a bank

:12:02.:12:05.

account. Is it 16 you can get a debit card? As a mother of

:12:06.:12:12.

teenagers. My children have to use cash. It hurts more to part with it.

:12:13.:12:20.

Is it 13-17? I certainly know 13-year-olds with parents permission

:12:21.:12:24.

can have some form of credit card. Not credit, debit card. 50 quid, and

:12:25.:12:33.

the crime editor is saying this is an interesting story because they

:12:34.:12:37.

are trying one step ahead. Laundering money the police is on

:12:38.:12:42.

them and this is another new avenue. Her parents, something else for them

:12:43.:12:47.

to have to keep an eye on. Yours are too young to worry about. Operation

:12:48.:12:54.

fault him it is called. The fraud unit has issued warnings to schools

:12:55.:13:00.

but kids don't like being dictated to, they like a bit.

:13:01.:13:07.

Page two, nearly 2000 children referred for help with gender

:13:08.:13:10.

identity. John, this is a massive increase in the number of children

:13:11.:13:16.

who are being referred either by their parents are because of how

:13:17.:13:18.

they are feeling about their own bodies. The percentage increase

:13:19.:13:23.

since shocking but when you look at the numbers, this comes from the

:13:24.:13:28.

gender identity development service, commissioned by NHS England, 1986

:13:29.:13:39.

people under 18 referred. Let's put this into perspective. The line that

:13:40.:13:45.

jumped out at us was some as young as three are being referred.

:13:46.:13:54.

Three-year-olds seeing any to speak about this but it is parents as

:13:55.:13:59.

well. Parents must recognise something in their children that

:14:00.:14:02.

makes them think they need help but the suggestion in this article is

:14:03.:14:08.

that there is a societal change? It is an incredibly complicated issue

:14:09.:14:12.

and all the people involved are individuals and will have their own

:14:13.:14:14.

individual issues that they are working through but right at the

:14:15.:14:19.

end, one of the doctors says, some people feel uncomfortable with the

:14:20.:14:22.

gender they were assigned at birth, so that is potentially

:14:23.:14:26.

transitioning, but others are unhappy with the gender role that

:14:27.:14:31.

society requires. I think that applies to pretty much everyone.

:14:32.:14:35.

There is a wider question of how we treat gender and society. Why we

:14:36.:14:39.

force children to gender roles at a young age. Girls wear pink and play

:14:40.:14:45.

with dolls, boys wear blue and play with friends, or whatever it is. It

:14:46.:14:51.

is completely arbitrary societal restraints that he put on them. And

:14:52.:14:55.

they last forever. The constraints put on adult men and can make

:14:56.:15:02.

people... And I don't think it is particularly controversial to say

:15:03.:15:05.

that those expectations can be damaging. In terms of the entries, I

:15:06.:15:09.

don't think anyone is arguing that there has been an increase

:15:10.:15:14.

necessarily. It is that people are talking about it more, parents and

:15:15.:15:20.

children now that this is an issue they can get help on if they need to

:15:21.:15:26.

and it comes in the same week as earlier story about borrowing --

:15:27.:15:33.

barring transgender individuals from the US military and what was

:15:34.:15:36.

reassuring is that various other national militaries including ours

:15:37.:15:40.

came forward and said that we support these individuals and anyone

:15:41.:15:44.

who wants to serve their country, so it definitely has become more

:15:45.:15:49.

mainstream, something that we are prepared to talk about a lot more.

:15:50.:15:54.

Once again, Donald Trump tweeting and taking the Pentagon by surprise

:15:55.:15:57.

and they are not quite knowing how to respond. Going back to the

:15:58.:16:04.

previous story about Reince Priebus it seems that that was done that way

:16:05.:16:11.

as well. As somebody in South Korea whose job is to monitor Donald

:16:12.:16:15.

Trump's Twitter, clearly they need to do this. Just finally in this

:16:16.:16:19.

particular story, the suggestion is that because we are becoming more

:16:20.:16:23.

tolerant of different types of sexuality and gender identity, maybe

:16:24.:16:30.

these children will get the help and feel there is nothing wrong with

:16:31.:16:33.

them if they don't feel how society tells them. In other newspapers

:16:34.:16:42.

hands this could be, shall we say, presented in a different way and the

:16:43.:16:48.

controversy is, by talking about this are you putting the start into

:16:49.:16:51.

people's heads. Are you encouraging it by talking about it? We were

:16:52.:16:58.

seeing just on camera we have had these debates about homosexuality

:16:59.:17:00.

decades ago and we have gone past that. And we have got away from the

:17:01.:17:07.

argument and talking about it and accepting it doesn't in any way

:17:08.:17:13.

promoting it and what you end up with if you accept people is happier

:17:14.:17:17.

and better adjusted individuals and ideally better society. That is my

:17:18.:17:26.

view. Let's end with somebody, Ph.D., Daily Express. Ferrari

:17:27.:17:34.

supercar wrecked in 60 minutes. When this accident happened, police had

:17:35.:17:36.

to ask the owner what the car had been. And it was a Ferrari, don't

:17:37.:17:44.

even know how to pronounce that... What happened? He flipped it over.

:17:45.:17:54.

In the wet. There is schadenfreude in this, bring a tear to a glass

:17:55.:17:58.

eye, poor old guy. It looks like he was lucky to escape. He escaped with

:17:59.:18:05.

bruises, they said, after the car completely caught fire. Look at it!.

:18:06.:18:15.

That is not coming back. That is gone. Ferrari says we offer and

:18:16.:18:22.

encourage motorists to have bought a Ferrari to undergo a driving course.

:18:23.:18:27.

We will remember that for when we buy our first supercar. That's it

:18:28.:18:31.

for the papers tonight and don't forget you can see everything

:18:32.:18:37.

online. If you missed the programme, you can watch it later on BBC I

:18:38.:18:41.

clear. John and Rachel, always lovely to see you, thank you are

:18:42.:18:43.

coming in. All sorts of weather to come this

:18:44.:19:02.

weekend, very mixed weather on the way. This sums it up,

:19:03.:19:03.
