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


With me are Nigel Nelson, political editor of the Sunday Mirror,


and political commentator Jo Phillips.


Tomorrow's front pages, starting with the Observer,


which leads with President Trump's decision to sack his chief of staff


- causing nervousness among Republicans.


The Telegraph headlines an ally of Boris Johnson attacking


The Sunday Times has a report on the lives of teenage British


girls who run away to join so-called Islamic State.


The Mail says that Princess Diana's brother has called on Channel 4 not


to broadcast her video diaries, which are due to air next week.


The Express also focuses on Princess Diana, claiming


Princess Diana asked the Queen for help about her marriage.


And that story also makes the Daily Star's front page.


We will begin with the Observer. Border chaos will hit hard after


Brexit, say experts. Why? Who are these experts? I thought we had had


enough of experts. I think as Brexit goes on there will be so many


experts coming out of the woodwork. These particular ones, it is a


Europewide consultancy which did an assessment of what it would mean


once we'd down south of the customs union. -- we bounce out of. They are


predicting a huge lorry parks in the south-east of England, lots of extra


border checks and costs. Custom checks would go up from a current


?55 million to ?200 million, over one year. It means huge delays for


any goods coming through. What this really shows is the tremendous


complexity of Brexit. Now, if we are not a member of the customs union,


we are bouncing out of the single market, we forget how easy life has


been in the single market. Goods and people can easily go from Yorkshire


to Lancashire, and is easily from France to Latvia. There were things


like that we are getting from it. This new system will mean that we


have border checks at every member state of the European Union, or 37


countries. It will also mean that's lorries coming from the EU will get


held up coming into this country as well. So it is in everybody's


interests to come up with a plan to stop that happening. Absolutely.


Because that will add on huge costs to consumers, because the delays and


the price of goods coming in and being delivered. It will also mean,


environmentally, it is not particularly brilliant. We have seen


what happens when Operation Stack happens when there is a problem down


at the Channel Tunnel or at the Channel ports. This will happen


right across the country and right across Europe and it will encourage


lots of firms to relocate, quite simply. So what are we going to do?


Live on chlorinated chicken? These are the kinds of deals that must be


done. They really have to be sorted out much later than this time next


year. At the moment, airlines cannot sell advance tickets from October


next year, because they need to know what deal we have over aviation


safety, which is policed by the EU. Otherwise our planes grounded. I am


sure that will not happen. I am sure we will get a deal. But it is the


kind of thing that needs to be sorted out. And quickly. Yes,


absolutely right. It might be that our lorries cannot even drive in


Europe, and in retaliation, European lorries would not be able to drive


in Britain, so we wouldn't be able to get goods backwards and forwards.


If there has to be quick throw quirk, -- quid pro quo, they would


cancel each other out. Or is that too simplistic? It is too sensible.


This whole deal is being run by people who want Brexit and want it


now. It is a case of ironing out the creases. We need a very big iron.


The Mail on Sunday, don't show Diana love tapes on television. This is L


Spencer, Diana's rather, not wanting these video diaries to be aired on


Channel 4. Why not? These are video recordings of sessions that Diana


had with a voice coach, a long time ago when she was in a very unhappy


place. It was before she did the Panorama interview, and the


suggestion is that she was having the voice coach sessions in order to


prepare for that interview. Now, what is rather curious is that these


were recorded by Peter Southland, a former Coronation Street actor and


voice coach. As far as we know they belong to him. The tapes, which were


filmed on a camcorder, then appeared, all were revealed, in Paul


Burrell's house, that was Diana's former butler. They came to light


when they were seized by police officers when they raided his house.


But they were not used in court during his trial. No, because they


were so incendiary. Mr Southland had a civil suit to try to get them back


was not Diana's family, the Spencer family, eventually settled it out of


court. The BBC bought them for ?30,000 or something like that but


chose never to show them. NBC, bizarrely, showed the tapes in 2004,


which seems to have passed all of us by. And now it is unclear how they


have ended up a channel for it to BBC bought them outright. Channel 4,


helpfully, have given us a statement. They are watching! Yes,


thank you, Channel 4. The excerpts from the tapes recorded have never


been shown before on British television and are an important


historical source. We carefully considered all of the material used


in the documentary and although the recordings were made in private, the


subjects covered are a matter of public record and provide a unique


insight into the preparations Diana undertook to gain a public voice and


tell her own personal story, which culminated in her late interview


with Panorama. This unique portrait of Diana gives her a voice in places


at front and centre at a time when the nation will be reflect in on her


life and death. Difficult, though, for her sums to watch, no doubt.


Yes, very. I understand absolutely white girl Spencer -- why Earl


Spencer does not want to see these go out. I understand that Prince


Harry and Prince William do not want them transmitted. At I do think


there is a public interest here. There is not. The idea that Diana


speaking in her own words, telling it like it is, or at least how she


saw it, I think it is important. But she was doing this in preparation to


do her own voice in the Panorama interview. I appreciate that. Now


that these tapes have come to light it does seem to me that both for the


public interest and the historical record, it is quite important to


have these things out there. But she chose to do an interview which was


recorded, the Panorama interview which some of us remember, this was


preparation for that. These are private sessions. They are not


public property. Obviously we cannot know what Diana's wishes might have


been. Given that she has been dead for 20 years and we cannot ask her,


now that they have come to light and now that they are available, I


think... But they have been available for a long time. 20 years


after her death is probably the right time to have these broadcasts.


I do not think it is in the public interest. They are private sessions.


We are not going to agree. No. That's fine. Indeed. I am grateful.


No gavel required. The Sunday Times, a couple of stories about Isis.


Firstly, revealed, the life of teenage brides in Isis' "A little


Britain". And ministers strip 150 jihadist is of UK passports. --


jihadists. People being stripped of part of their dual nationality to


stop them coming back to the UK from Barack or Syria. I think this is a


subject for rejoicing. If you have people who want to come back and


bomb us I am quite happy to keep them away. The way this works, it is


if they only had reduced nationality, we could not do it,


because it would make them stateless. So these are people with


dual nationality. In other words, there is someone else for them to


go. There are so many people here, and I think that we learned over the


recent terror attacks of the huge number of jihadists in Britain from


MI5. We thought there were about 3000. It turned out there were about


23,000, and 3000 other ones they can try to monitor at the moment. And


when one falls off another one goes on, sort of thing. If you imagine


that the IRA, at its height, was about 600 strong, 23,000 people who


actively wish us harm is hugely dangerous. Keeping out anybody who


might add to that seems like the best policy. This picture is of a


woman with her little girl, who lived in Raqqa, the stronghold of


so-called Islamic State. She managed to escape. She was taken by her


husband. He said he had a new job. They were living in Dubai at the


time. A new job in Turkey. They were going to go there and then go to


Britain. At instead they ended up in Raqqa as you say. Her escape, it is


quite a shocking story of the house in northern Syria where the Bethnal


Green schoolgirls who ran off a couple of years ago now, other


jihadi rides from Bristol and Glasgow, the so-called White Widow,


cheap talks about how these women, these young girls, were delighted


about reading about themselves on online British news sites. They


crowed over reports of terrorist attacks in Europe. She was very


shocked about that. She managed to escape, her husband was killed, I


think. It does show, you know, we are hearing stories last week about


girls coming back. There was a young German girl, 16 years old, who came


back, or who escaped. So you are getting very mixed messages from


people who are going out there and seen, it was not what I thought, and


this, which is quite shocking. Let's move on to the Independent.


Government relaxed acid laws against expert advice. Yes, this is about,


as we know, there have been a view rather frightening acid attacks


where people in the streets, in London, have had acid thrown in


their faces to no particular reasons. -- a few rather. Very


damaging, in some cases like changing. This story is not a


particularly new story, but what it is basically doing is saying that


the government, the coalition government, in 2015, ignored advice,


in their desire to burn red tape and cut bureaucracy, they basically cut


red tape and got rid of the 1972 Poisons Act, against the advice of


the Poisons Board, and doctors as well. What we do not know, because


previously to this, anybody selling noxious substances like saucier


custard and hydrochloric acid would have had to register with their


council. -- sulphiric acid. What this does not say is, we actually do


not know what acid has been used, but we have heard police officers


talking about the kind of stuff you would find in your bathroom or


kitchen cupboard. We don't know for sure, we don't know how it was


acquired, but we are likely to see efforts made to have this made an


offence. Yes, what seems to be happening now, because of the


horrific attacks, and the number of them, because acid attacks are going


up as people turn away from knives. Carrying a knife carries a five-year


penalty, so this is the weapon of choice for people who do not want to


do that. Amber Rudd seems to be putting back everything in place


that was originally got rid of by the coalition government. The


problem, really, and it is the same problem they had at the time, is


that this is the stuff you do have under your sink. The idea that you


would need a Home Office licence to bleach or bathroom is going to be


some kind of problem. -- your bathroom. It takes a bit of working


out but the important thing is to keep it out of the wrong hands. The


Mail on Sunday. Revealed, London's shocking drug data. Statistics about


how many were said to have taken some kind of banned substance while


they were competing, or before they were competing, at the London


Olympics. Scary figures. What we are talking about is out of 656 track


and field finalists, 87 had at one point being caught doping. -- been.


It is scary because we have the World Championship starting shortly.


Presumably some of the same sort of athletes. It does seem to appear


that the policing of this is not working incredibly well. Also, not


only are they cheating bedfellow competitors, they are cheating the


people who go and watch them. -- their fellow. Cycling went through


this. They had to do a very big cleanup. Huge. Lance Armstrong, as


we Ormeau, was using drugs and cheating right the way through. --


as we all know. Five years ago we were basking in the glory of


everything that the London Olympics was. It was great. What is so awful


is that for the people who really worked their socks off, they may


have missed out on medals and stuff like that, and who wants to compete


with cheaters? It's not the same if you work hard


and you are stripped of the title, you weren't there on the day to


receive the title. The Sunday Times, let them eat pheasant says Be the


Botham. This is Ian Botham, cricketing hero, Walker


extraordinaire and he's a land owner and a pheasant shoot. He has joined


forces with something called the country food trust. There are huge


concerns about the number of people using food banks and there's a move


within the countryside to provide people with cheap and readily


available food, such as pheasant. Sue Reeve, known as Mrs very picky


on Twitter, reminds us, there you are, reminds us that only non-


perishable food is good for food banks but they have a coming plan to


turn it into easy cook meals. Exactly. They don't have to hang


them and pluck them. If you can do that it seems ideal. The hunting


lobby are going to be pretty furious. Why? They don't like


shooting pheasants and partridges. You mean the antihunting lobby? They


don't like shooting pheasants and partridges. A lot of people go on


corporate shoots and they don't even take them home. If the food is


wasted then put it in a food bank. It's not just food banks, it is


frozen pies and curries and things like that. Pheasant curry, I've


never never tried that! There's a thought, Saturday night, Sunday


lunch, not sure!
