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

:00:15.:00:18.

With me are Reuters Business Correspondent, Tom Bergin,

:00:19.:00:21.

at the Institute of Economic Affairs.

:00:22.:00:26.

The Daily Telegraph says Brexit negotiators have been accused

:00:27.:00:30.

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

:00:31.:00:35.

while most of the Cabinet is on holiday.

:00:36.:00:37.

The picture shows Jessica Ennis-Hill collecting her 2011

:00:38.:00:40.

World Championship heptathlon gold medal earlier this evening,

:00:41.:00:43.

after the original winner was banned for doping.

:00:44.:00:46.

The Times reports record levels of violence and abuse

:00:47.:00:53.

against vulnerable patients at mental health trusts

:00:54.:00:55.

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

:00:56.:00:57.

The Guardian says 13 areas of England have restricted

:00:58.:01:03.

or completely halted IVF treatment for women since the start

:01:04.:01:08.

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

:01:09.:01:11.

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

:01:12.:01:14.

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

:01:15.:01:17.

Four in 10 care homes failed inspections this year which means

:01:18.:01:20.

70,000 elderly residents are at risk,

:01:21.:01:22.

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

:01:23.:01:29.

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

:01:30.:01:35.

how she was drugged and stuffed into a suitcase.

:01:36.:01:38.

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

:01:39.:01:54.

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

:01:55.:02:01.

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

:02:02.:02:08.

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

:02:09.:02:14.

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

:02:15.:02:26.

and the accusation so that there have been investigations that

:02:27.:02:29.

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

:02:30.:02:34.

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

:02:35.:02:40.

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

:02:41.:02:53.

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

:02:54.:02:58.

restrictions being used. That cases were being used on psychiatric

:02:59.:03:10.

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

:03:11.:03:15.

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

:03:16.:03:20.

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

:03:21.:03:27.

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

:03:28.:03:32.

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

:03:33.:03:40.

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

:03:41.:03:45.

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

:03:46.:03:52.

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

:03:53.:03:58.

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

:03:59.:04:02.

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

:04:03.:04:09.

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

:04:10.:04:15.

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

:04:16.:04:22.

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

:04:23.:04:27.

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

:04:28.:04:34.

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

:04:35.:04:45.

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

:04:46.:04:55.

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

:04:56.:05:00.

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

:05:01.:05:05.

There is responsibility for politicians across the board. We can

:05:06.:05:10.

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

:05:11.:05:16.

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

:05:17.:05:25.

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

:05:26.:05:32.

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

:05:33.:05:36.

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

:05:37.:05:44.

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

:05:45.:05:49.

consistently in recent weeks. Basically some do not want to

:05:50.:05:55.

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

:05:56.:06:02.

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

:06:03.:06:08.

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

:06:09.:06:15.

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

:06:16.:06:21.

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

:06:22.:06:28.

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

:06:29.:06:39.

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

:06:40.:06:44.

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

:06:45.:06:50.

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

:06:51.:06:57.

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

:06:58.:07:03.

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

:07:04.:07:09.

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

:07:10.:07:13.

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

:07:14.:07:23.

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

:07:24.:07:26.

consistently offended and outraged at the suggestion of the compromises

:07:27.:07:34.

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

:07:35.:07:42.

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

:07:43.:07:47.

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

:07:48.:07:55.

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

:07:56.:08:07.

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

:08:08.:08:15.

together and start negotiating these deals and there is almost certainly

:08:16.:08:19.

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

:08:20.:08:28.

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

:08:29.:08:37.

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

:08:38.:08:42.

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

:08:43.:08:51.

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

:08:52.:08:58.

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

:08:59.:09:04.

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

:09:05.:09:09.

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

:09:10.:09:15.

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

:09:16.:09:22.

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

:09:23.:09:28.

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

:09:29.:09:35.

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

:09:36.:09:41.

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

:09:42.:09:46.

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

:09:47.:09:52.

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

:09:53.:10:05.

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

:10:06.:10:14.

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

:10:15.:10:19.

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

:10:20.:10:27.

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

:10:28.:10:37.

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

:10:38.:10:42.

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

:10:43.:10:49.

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

:10:50.:10:56.

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

:10:57.:11:00.

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

:11:01.:11:07.

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

:11:08.:11:13.

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

:11:14.:11:18.

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

:11:19.:11:27.

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

:11:28.:11:34.

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

:11:35.:11:40.

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

:11:41.:11:49.

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

:11:50.:11:54.

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

:11:55.:11:58.

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

:11:59.:12:05.

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

:12:06.:12:12.

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

:12:13.:12:18.

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

:12:19.:12:27.

Google employee suggesting the rub perfectly acceptable reasons why

:12:28.:12:31.

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

:12:32.:12:36.

manifesto which is even more outrageous. The issue around the

:12:37.:12:45.

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

:12:46.:12:49.

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

:12:50.:12:56.

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

:12:57.:13:03.

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

:13:04.:13:17.

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

:13:18.:13:23.

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

:13:24.:13:28.

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

:13:29.:13:37.

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

:13:38.:13:40.

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

:13:41.:13:49.

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

:13:50.:13:54.

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

:13:55.:13:59.

a lot of infuriated employees who have these nasty manifesto against

:14:00.:14:07.

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

:14:08.:14:14.

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

:14:15.:14:23.

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

:14:24.:14:36.

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

:14:37.:14:44.

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

:14:45.:14:48.
