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

:00:14.:00:17.

With me are Joe Watts political editor at the Independent

:00:18.:00:20.

and the Deputy political editor of the Daily Express Alison Little.

:00:21.:00:23.

Let's look at tomorrow's front pages.

:00:24.:00:28.

The Express has a warning about EU sugar imports

:00:29.:00:31.

In the I, an ultimatum for the Cabinet on mental healthcare

:00:32.:00:36.

In the I, an ultimatum for the Cabinet on mental healthcare.

:00:37.:00:39.

A report warning against wasteful spending in the NHS makes the main

:00:40.:00:42.

The Metro leads with the news that a young

:00:43.:00:46.

British man who supposedly found a way to block the ransomware that

:00:47.:00:48.

hit the NHS recently, has been charged with selling

:00:49.:00:51.

The Mirror has this story of a terminally ill man's video

:00:52.:00:58.

And the Mail leads with what they call 'EU border chaos',

:00:59.:01:05.

the paper reports British travellers are being told to get

:01:06.:01:08.

Let us start with that. We can all look forward to spending half of our

:01:09.:01:20.

holiday at an airport. It's interesting how some of the papers

:01:21.:01:23.

making this a Brexit issue and others not. In the end it is about

:01:24.:01:28.

security in new passport checks. That seems to be yet, though we are

:01:29.:01:32.

blaming Europeans for knowing this was coming and not me personally...

:01:33.:01:37.

Some people in Britain. Are blaming European governments for not putting

:01:38.:01:40.

enough staff, they knew they were introducing this checks and it was a

:01:41.:01:46.

security measures, they say it is for non-... Yes. It is a security

:01:47.:01:51.

issue. The Telegraph which we are moving on to, my heart goes out to

:01:52.:01:55.

all these people going to the Apple. It's the perfect summer story, isn't

:01:56.:01:58.

it? Everyone is about to go on holiday or has just bin. All

:01:59.:02:04.

panicking or packing bags. -- about to go on holiday or have just been.

:02:05.:02:10.

Actually, airports are saying in the three hourly wage may not be enough.

:02:11.:02:14.

You have got 10 million people flooding through these airports over

:02:15.:02:18.

the next few days. These extra checks are causing these huge

:02:19.:02:21.

queues, so it is the perfect amalgamation of summer holiday story

:02:22.:02:27.

and Brexit together. In the Telegraph, a different take on the

:02:28.:02:31.

story. This is saying a minister here saying there should be UK only

:02:32.:02:35.

passport lines. They say to retaliate for Brexit queues, so

:02:36.:02:39.

clearly blaming it on a Brexit. The idea that the UK the UK even though

:02:40.:02:43.

we're not part of the free showing in travel area should have its own

:02:44.:02:49.

dedicated line. Is that likely to you think? -- the Shang in travel

:02:50.:02:55.

area. This slightly cancer is a silly season story. If you have

:02:56.:03:00.

newspaper space to fill, it's an unnamed minister. It has to be said.

:03:01.:03:06.

-- this slightly seems like a silly season story. One wonders if this is

:03:07.:03:12.

not just subterfuge from the EU member states, if they are not just

:03:13.:03:15.

trying to give us a warning this is something that is going to come

:03:16.:03:18.

after Brexit. We should consider British only lanes in the UK if they

:03:19.:03:22.

want to behave like that. Such a gentlemanly, on British way. There

:03:23.:03:27.

are people looking ahead to what will happen, the immigration system,

:03:28.:03:30.

will we be able to cope with a border controls. It will be a huge

:03:31.:03:38.

upheaval. It certainly will be. But even if we learn to leaving the EU,

:03:39.:03:41.

this would be happening everywhere. Let's move on to The Sun. This is

:03:42.:03:49.

The Sun newspaper, page two. This is a story according to a Donald Trump.

:03:50.:03:53.

Donald Trump has had a conversation with Malcolm Turnbull and he has

:03:54.:04:00.

apparently said I spoke to Merkel today, and believe me, she wishes

:04:01.:04:03.

she did not do it. This is about opening the door to a large number

:04:04.:04:09.

of immigrants. What do you make of this? I think you are right to say

:04:10.:04:14.

it is as told by Donald Trump, so there is always a bit of a health

:04:15.:04:18.

warning on that. A conversation between him and the Australian Prime

:04:19.:04:24.

Minister. It is Donald Trump saying, he had been told this by Angela

:04:25.:04:28.

Merkel. It feels right, whether she would have admitted it to the

:04:29.:04:31.

American president I don't know. Do they have a very close relationship!

:04:32.:04:36.

Talking about Angela Merkel when there are all those people from

:04:37.:04:39.

across the Mediterranean and Syria and other places, I think she felt

:04:40.:04:43.

we must be generous, Germany must be generous and open our doors. I think

:04:44.:04:46.

it is one of the few mistakes she has ever made, caused an awful lot

:04:47.:04:49.

of trouble and tension and problems in her own country. She is now

:04:50.:04:53.

regretting it, I think a lot of people in Britain would say well,

:04:54.:04:59.

about time. Perhaps by the way, you might have been a bit more helpful

:05:00.:05:02.

to David Cameron when he was asking you to support more immigration

:05:03.:05:07.

controls in the EU. And you were not helpful. We just don't know. How

:05:08.:05:14.

public pronouncements are very much still in line with the policy she

:05:15.:05:17.

had when she did open the borders, and of course we know Donald

:05:18.:05:22.

Trump... This is a president who refused to shake her hand in front

:05:23.:05:24.

of the cameras in the White House. They do not have a good

:05:25.:05:28.

relationship. He does not have the best reputation for being straight

:05:29.:05:32.

up about his previous conversations. We know there is all sorts of

:05:33.:05:35.

enquiries and allegations going on about those kinds of things in

:05:36.:05:40.

America. We have to take this with not just a pinch of salt but a

:05:41.:05:44.

tsunami of salt. A salami of salt like this in army of sugar coming

:05:45.:05:55.

across the EU and an ex-Tory. -- in our next story. The President of

:05:56.:05:59.

Mexico recently saying this is not how it happened at all, this

:06:00.:06:03.

conversation. Can you stop going on about paying for the wall...? He was

:06:04.:06:08.

getting damaged in the States in the polls because Mexico kept denying it

:06:09.:06:11.

was going to pay for the wall. He had spent two years saying a word.

:06:12.:06:16.

He I suppose trying to twist the President's wrists and saying, can

:06:17.:06:19.

you please stop saying? Say it will be a negotiation. Of course, there

:06:20.:06:23.

is no reason for the Mexican president to say there will be a

:06:24.:06:25.

negotiation. The wall was never going to be paid for by Mexico. The

:06:26.:06:30.

point Black repeated that. I think this is going to go down as another

:06:31.:06:35.

Trump mishap. I'm sure Donald Trump will be tweeting about it in the

:06:36.:06:39.

morning. On GDI, blood on our hands. This is a story we have covered a

:06:40.:06:44.

lot today. -- on to the eye newspaper.

:06:45.:06:48.

A big problem with mental health care particularly the young people.

:06:49.:06:52.

It has been going up the political agenda. Really shown words from this

:06:53.:06:57.

judge, who said from dealing with the case of this poor girl in a very

:06:58.:07:03.

unhappy state of mind, trying to kill herself many times. It has been

:07:04.:07:07.

recommended she go to a specialist units that will care for her and

:07:08.:07:12.

bring her back to health. But I believe there is a six month waiting

:07:13.:07:15.

list for said unit, and the judge has come out with these tremendously

:07:16.:07:19.

strong words, saying we cannot help this girl something will happen and

:07:20.:07:23.

we will have blood on our hands. If this get something done, getting

:07:24.:07:26.

something moving, it will be beautiful. Jeremy Hunt early in the

:07:27.:07:28.

week was talking about recruiting extra mental staff, that's

:07:29.:07:35.

wonderful. It's the rhetoric and the talk about parity between physical

:07:36.:07:39.

health and mental health. Absolutely, this is in your face

:07:40.:07:43.

reality. Yes, and it seems like such a clear-cut case. She is in care at

:07:44.:07:47.

the moment and she lives in a room where there are no objects, where

:07:48.:07:50.

she has no belongings, where they have had to use restraints on her

:07:51.:07:55.

117 times in a recent period. Because she has tried to take on

:07:56.:07:59.

life so many times. Now the judge is saying it is so obvious we need to

:08:00.:08:03.

find some new situation for this girl. It is just not there because I

:08:04.:08:09.

suppose the resources are not or they have not worked out if they

:08:10.:08:14.

need a particular amount of care for the situation. Either way there is

:08:15.:08:17.

something going very wrong and this will perhaps move things forward.

:08:18.:08:22.

The BBC had figures today showing that some had been waiting over a

:08:23.:08:25.

year to find beds coming out of hospital. Desperate, desperate. A

:08:26.:08:31.

related story, with the wider NHS. This is a story coming from Tim

:08:32.:08:38.

breaks, he is conducting a comprehensibility efficiency audit.

:08:39.:08:43.

Of the NHS. He is saying if the NHS expects more money, then it has to

:08:44.:08:47.

cut waste. It's about efficiencies. What do you make of this? I would

:08:48.:08:54.

say actually, yes, and indeed yes. Having worked with the health

:08:55.:08:57.

service -- having dealt with the health service, all of us have had

:08:58.:09:01.

dealings with the wonderful health service. Sometimes things have to be

:09:02.:09:03.

done twice because things go straight, the wrong thing is asked

:09:04.:09:06.

for. He is talking particularly that hundreds of millions of pounds a

:09:07.:09:09.

year being wasted because patients end up in these emergency surgery

:09:10.:09:13.

beds when if you had done tests more quickly, they might not have to be

:09:14.:09:18.

there. It's quite a harsh message. I suppose a lot of people say, it

:09:19.:09:23.

plays into, a minister is always trying to say we are putting more

:09:24.:09:28.

money into the NHS. But it could be more efficient. They are comparing

:09:29.:09:35.

how come this hospital can do it? Ministers are going to like this

:09:36.:09:41.

message because the NHS is quite often saying we need more people,

:09:42.:09:44.

more money. I think a mixture is needed. We know there is huge

:09:45.:09:48.

variations across the NHS and that is partly because of the structure

:09:49.:09:51.

of it. We certainly do not need a huge restructuring again, we do not

:09:52.:09:56.

top-down control. We do know the NHS has been forced to make billions and

:09:57.:10:00.

billions of pounds of efficiency savings already in 2010, the tinted

:10:01.:10:05.

ten and 2015. 20 billion in that period alone. And more since then as

:10:06.:10:11.

well. Of course, the other part to the context of this not really

:10:12.:10:13.

mentioned here is a massive increase in costs for the NHS as well in

:10:14.:10:17.

terms of the ageing population, and that has come out very heavily in

:10:18.:10:21.

the last few days as well in terms of the changes to the state pension.

:10:22.:10:27.

All these things tied together. All the amazing advances in medical

:10:28.:10:31.

treatment as well. If you concentrate on efficiency savings

:10:32.:10:33.

the whole time, you're not really talking about the whole problem. And

:10:34.:10:38.

sugar! That is not what the NHS needs more of. What's this all

:10:39.:10:44.

about, Alison? The EU makes you fat, it is now official. This is a

:10:45.:10:49.

tremendous story, I didn't write it! Oh, come on! A tsunami of cheap

:10:50.:10:56.

sugar. The basic story is this... It's going to flood in here and wash

:10:57.:11:01.

us all away! It's going to make us eat toffee. There are currently

:11:02.:11:06.

quote in place in Europe, you knew, which produces half the world sugar

:11:07.:11:09.

but he doesn't like that. As to how much can be produced. The EU is

:11:10.:11:13.

sweeping away these quotas, so all is sugar producers are gearing up

:11:14.:11:17.

frantically for October. There will be more sugar, it will be like

:11:18.:11:21.

Charlie and the chocolate factory. And the fear about the obesity

:11:22.:11:29.

warning is that producing more sugar brings the price down, and if you

:11:30.:11:33.

bring the price down, manufacturers no longer have an incentive to use

:11:34.:11:36.

less of it in their products. Just at a time when we are all getting

:11:37.:11:41.

fatter and fatter and in and in because of the sugar. The Department

:11:42.:11:45.

of Health wants us to eat less sugar and the Department of the

:11:46.:11:47.

Environment says this is great for British farmers. Moving on quickly,

:11:48.:11:52.

a quick word about Robert Hardy who has died today at the age of 91.

:11:53.:11:55.

Just hearing the signature tune to all creatures great and small... If

:11:56.:12:00.

we had it downloaded in the studio on sheet music, I could play. It's

:12:01.:12:05.

just as well we don't! I'm really sad about Robert Hardy, my to his

:12:06.:12:11.

family. Lovely tribute. -- my condolences to his family. Graf,

:12:12.:12:15.

elegant and twinkly. Lots of younger people know him from the Harry

:12:16.:12:18.

Potter films. That's after my time, I remember him in all creatures

:12:19.:12:28.

great and small. We were interviewing one of his co-stars

:12:29.:12:30.

earlier, saying his greatness was because everything had to be done

:12:31.:12:36.

perfectly. Do you remember the show! I vaguely remember the tune... I was

:12:37.:12:43.

too young for this show, too old for Harry Potter. Kind of missed out.

:12:44.:12:48.

Right, now finally. This is a story we really want to talk about. On the

:12:49.:12:51.

Metro. We will talk about moisturiser. I think we are. It

:12:52.:12:58.

might be, because you are always impeccable... Moisturiser probably

:12:59.:13:04.

does not very much, she says. What do you think, does it? Yes. We think

:13:05.:13:11.

it does. On the other hand, I think Helen Mirren has some sort of

:13:12.:13:14.

miracle jeans. I can't remember how would she is but she looks amazing.

:13:15.:13:18.

She is also the face of La Real, and I believe she has come out and said

:13:19.:13:22.

moisturiser stonework. They will be so pleased with her! What's your

:13:23.:13:26.

view? Looks like there will be looking for a new face for L'Oreal.

:13:27.:13:32.

Open to any offers... He definitely uses moisturiser. I can see. You

:13:33.:13:36.

don't need it! Bright, what a good note to end on. Thank you very much.

:13:37.:13:40.

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

:13:41.:13:44.

It's all there for you - seven days a week at

:13:45.:13:48.

:13:51.:13:53.

Thank you to my guests, Joe and Alison. That's it from us, good

:13:54.:13:56.

night.
