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


With me are Reuters Business Correspondent, Tom Bergin,


at the Institute of Economic Affairs.


The Daily Telegraph says Brexit negotiators have been accused


of trying to "ram through" a ?36 billion divorce bill


while most of the Cabinet is on holiday.


The picture shows Jessica Ennis-Hill collecting her 2011


World Championship heptathlon gold medal earlier this evening,


after the original winner was banned for doping.


The Times reports record levels of violence and abuse


against vulnerable patients at mental health trusts


were reported last year, amid accusations of "endemic" use


The Guardian says 13 areas of England have restricted


or completely halted IVF treatment for women since the start


of the year, with a further eight consulting on taking similar steps.


The FT says Financial institutions have paid more than $150 billion


in fines in the US, relating to the credit crisis.


Four in 10 care homes failed inspections this year which means


70,000 elderly residents are at risk,


The Metro features the British model who was kidnapped in Milan and says


And The Sun goes with the same story and says the model has described


how she was drugged and stuffed into a suitcase.


a couple of health-related stories to look at. Looking at different


problems in parts of the NHS. In the Times, abuse of mental patient


endemic in the NHS, abuse and violence. This is where they said


force has been used in restraining patients. Obviously, patients with


mental health problems sometimes can be difficult to manage for NHS Trust


and the accusation so that there have been investigations that


sometimes the force has been excessive. The figures we see do not


show the outcome of the investigations so we do not know if


indeed staff have been found to be misbehaving. This is a long-standing


issue. A few years ago figures showed they were faced down


restrictions being used. That cases were being used on psychiatric


wards. -- Taser. We have seen this for a period of time and it goes on.


It is not clear whether it is a budgetary issue but there seems to


be suggestions that there are better ways of doing it. That has been


success in moving away from this kind of restraint. Best practice


needs to be shared across the system. There is still stigma around


mental health. How we treated. Talking about it as if it is a


disease. It is not something they can always control. A lot of these


physical force - more than 5000 incidents last year alone - these


are coming forward because perhaps the training is not fully their and


we are not fully equipped to handle patients. You would not think of


handling a patient with something like cancer being treated like this.


On the Daily Mail, care homes. Four in ten not fit for purpose. An


investigation carried out by the Daily Mail. As a consequence, the


right tens of thousands of older people who are at risk. Up to 70,000


vulnerable elderly people at risk. Four in ten not fit for purpose, K


Holmes. A few billion pounds is the whole in these services. -- care


homes. We have projects which will cost up to $70 billion. A few


billions could be put into helping the elderly who need it the most.


There is responsibility for politicians across the board. We can


fix these problems. The money is there somewhere and you need to


prioritise it. But if you help the economy and trade then you would be


able to do this... There was a plan to solve these financial problems,


part of the reason may's election campaign. It did not go down very


well. People that did not have expensive homes contribute more to


healthcare. This is very much a financial issue. We have seen it


consistently in recent weeks. Basically some do not want to


provide these services to local authorities. It is a challenge and


it will get worse because it is an ageing population. Hard choices to


make. Infrastructure into the future and hope there is no loss but maybe


people will have to start with taxes in other areas. It is a financial


choice and we have to own up to that. In the Telegraph, Tory anger


over Brexit divorce bill. Accused of being kept out of the loop. And


except be of ?36 billion. The suggestion that the figure is


plucked out of the net all worked out carefully, I don't know, while


politicians are on holiday. Many people saying conflict in things and


occasionally Theresa May will weigh in on the issue from on high. What


is interesting is another narrative we see which is something you get


when speaking to officials. Trying to explain some basic facts to the


ministers and they do not want to hear it. Some of these officials say


they do not want to listen to reason and consequently they are


consistently offended and outraged at the suggestion of the compromises


like paying and except Bill -- except build. It does seem to be the


name of the game. But across the border these days. David Jones is


come out and said that we should not be making a sweetener for trading


relations... This is the former trade minister. But whether it is 36


billion more less... It needs to be put forward as a way to come


together and start negotiating these deals and there is almost certainly


going to be this payment to the EU the question is how much. Upward


pressure! British tourists and red tape. The cost to make it trickier


to visit the continent. We used to visit before we were part of the EU


but now all these regulations exist. They do exist, the Americans who


want to come abroad. It just tick a few boxes but the idea for UK


citizens to pay anything, 5 euros for a Visa that will last five


years, it does not the huge cost but the idea of paying that anything is


a huge change. It is something we need to get used to as the red tape


on both sides changes. Psychologically, this will be one of


these factors that will make us feel different. We are clearly not part


of the same community. We have to fill out forms. We will not be going


to preferential ideals ex- access. Many people may be delighted about


that, reasserting their national identity, many people will say it


feels a bit uncomfortable. Perhaps we can start collecting stamps in


our old loop passports if we get those back, Kate. LAUGHTER


Absolutely. Your other. Right, were we going? The Guardian. The postcode


lottery. Defying medical guidelines because money is tight but the aged


which some women are being denied this treatment is surprisingly low.


Many women about the age of 35 May start thinking about IVF. But they


will take action on it. This to me is a frustrating storeyed because a


professor quoted in this, who pioneered IVF in Britain says the


issue is equality. He says that if the country decides not to have it


it will be fine but that is a race to the bottom, surely. The idea


behind this is why is it so difficult to access IVF at that


young age of 35 stop we need to start looking at the system and how


women can access this cheaply and more efficiently as they do a cross


Europe. A lot of people would think we have had this battle already.


This age group, that is when it is most effective. It sounds like a


medical argument but it really sounds more economic. It seems to be


just a case of yes we obeyed the argument but it seems to be the one


which is easy us. A lot of citizens may feel it is a choice issue so


they feel politically this is something they can get away with. If


they rationale the forms of healthcare they may not find that is


accepted so maybe it is about what else may be caught next. Google


apologises after employees anti- diversity the raid. We cannot get


away from agenda at the moment. This was a document written by an unknown


Google employee suggesting the rub perfectly acceptable reasons why


women are not doing so well inside this company. They call it a


manifesto which is even more outrageous. The issue around the


gender pay gap is far more new ends. Women in the UK between the ages of


20 and 40 are earning the same as their male counterparts but when


they become mothers... People will be having a sharp in take a breath


saying that is not true... Rather than talking about the nuances...


Darwinism. Yes. If you choose to cherry pick the evidence, you can


justify any argument. It might be this particular individual has not


been successful in his career... I am assuming it is him. It sounds a


little bit. And maybe angry. We think this is not the best context


from which to make an argument about a highly complicated issue. It has


left Google with a bit of a problem having to explain this. Maybe


something good would come of it. It is an absolute nightmare. They have


a lot of infuriated employees who have these nasty manifesto against


them. Not in any company but in the tech industry which have even a


wider pay gaps. I am all out of outrage. I need a rest. That's the


papers for the night... Just because I am female. LAUGHTER Go to our


website for more details. I am even wearing the right colour. Great to


have you here. Thank you very much, the film review is coming up next.
