Welcome to our look ahead at what is in The Papers tomorrow. With me in

:00:19.:00:24.

the studio is the political editor of the Sunday express and the

:00:25.:00:28.

comedian and Evening Standard columnist. Thank you both for being

:00:29.:00:35.

with us. Let her show the front papers as we have them. The Michael

:00:36.:00:39.

Fuchs is on the story of a young girl who witnessed her father and

:00:40.:00:44.

flicked a fatal beating on her mother before killing himself in the

:00:45.:00:47.

West Midlands. The independent claims that the overall cost of UK

:00:48.:00:53.

membership in the EU is millions of pounds each week. The sun talks

:00:54.:00:57.

about the screening of Princess Diana's programme. There is also

:00:58.:01:10.

thought in the Financial Times about the Paddy Power Betfair chief quits

:01:11.:01:15.

after transforming the UK gambling industry. And there is talk in the

:01:16.:01:21.

Daily Telegraph of the women that were short in Rio. And in the Times,

:01:22.:01:30.

Tesco is to stop selling disposable plastic bags in a bid to boost their

:01:31.:01:39.

profits. And in the Guardian, US federal workers have been told to

:01:40.:01:42.

stop using the term climate change. Let us begin with the Daily

:01:43.:01:48.

Telegraph and Camilla, this story about the former JCQ -- GCHQ boss

:01:49.:01:54.

telling us that children need digital skills to keep ahead of

:01:55.:02:00.

their rivals. Yes, the tricky waters of the summer holidays! How much

:02:01.:02:05.

tablet time can they have? This is suggesting that everyone to raise a

:02:06.:02:12.

bold, new bright and post-Brexit future we need our children to be

:02:13.:02:16.

online and Internet savvy which I can get and accept, that is the

:02:17.:02:19.

difficulty for parents because on one hand you do not work them to

:02:20.:02:24.

overdo it with technology, we have seen how studies suggest it can

:02:25.:02:27.

stress children out into the course of cyber-bullying. On the other hand

:02:28.:02:33.

we need these digital skills and must be up-to-date. We had the

:02:34.:02:38.

Children's Commissioner telling us this was full of junk food. Yes, she

:02:39.:02:43.

said you have to have your five portions of digital time each day

:02:44.:02:46.

and for it to be quite monitored. The question is, what is it that

:02:47.:02:51.

children are doing? He is right, digital decoder for this country,

:02:52.:02:55.

but is that just looking at this bid and on Twitter or Snapchat or are

:02:56.:03:00.

there better skills that could be done? But there is a massive

:03:01.:03:03.

generational divide for millennial is now, they are known as digital

:03:04.:03:10.

peacocks, their lives have no divide between the physical and the

:03:11.:03:13.

digital, they feel that they do display their world online, that is

:03:14.:03:16.

life for them now, so it is quite difficult to get the balance right.

:03:17.:03:19.

Quite a few Brexit is the reason The Papers, let us run through them. The

:03:20.:03:25.

Telegraph has the Brexit Secretary handing judges powers to see off

:03:26.:03:31.

rebels, what is that about? This is about the European Arrest Warrant

:03:32.:03:34.

and this will please the Eurosceptic Tory MPs in the party who basically

:03:35.:03:39.

what the Supreme Court to have supremacy, pardon the pun, over the

:03:40.:03:43.

EU when it comes to sorting out extradition. They think it is better

:03:44.:03:47.

that these nationals are treated by the courts here than by EU courts

:03:48.:03:52.

that may offer a substantial and substandard judicial system. If he

:03:53.:03:56.

can pledge that, he will keep things happy on his side. The problem is

:03:57.:04:00.

water that is part of the deal because from the other side, senior

:04:01.:04:04.

people in Europe will not want this to happen, they will want the ECG to

:04:05.:04:09.

still have supremacy, so I suspect this is something that will look to

:04:10.:04:14.

appease the backbenchers, but will it actually worked in the reality of

:04:15.:04:18.

the negotiations? Let us look at the Independent and

:04:19.:04:23.

another Brexit story and they are claiming that what the UK pays to

:04:24.:04:28.

the EU, well, that was set during the referendum to be at ?350 million

:04:29.:04:32.

each week and this newspaper is saying it is half of that. This is

:04:33.:04:36.

an important story because at the centre of the successful Leave

:04:37.:04:43.

campaign was this bus with the words ?350 million each week and a lot of

:04:44.:04:47.

people thought, hang on a minute, that seems like a terribly huge

:04:48.:04:50.

amount of money and we should be putting that back into the NHS. As

:04:51.:04:56.

every week was on with all of these Brexit negotiations, we are not

:04:57.:04:59.

getting the hundred and ?50 million back and it looks like this figure

:05:00.:05:02.

was inaccurate. There will be a lot of people who will say this is a lot

:05:03.:05:06.

of money anyway, but truth is really important in politics and this was a

:05:07.:05:12.

central plank of the referendum campaign, so people will be up in

:05:13.:05:17.

arms about it. Camilla, what about Venezuela, Jeremy Corbyn has been

:05:18.:05:20.

under pressure on his stands over Venezuela and the independent has

:05:21.:05:25.

the small headline at the top saying that Jeremy Corbyn has broken his

:05:26.:05:29.

silence on Dennis Wheeler, he is under pressure to condemn the

:05:30.:05:34.

president. Yes, he was good friends with the president, his name escapes

:05:35.:05:39.

me, I think it is President Maduro? He is telling us that he has done

:05:40.:05:44.

great things for the poorer people, even though the Foreign Office has

:05:45.:05:48.

warned people to stay away with writing on the streets and virus, I

:05:49.:05:52.

am not sure how that is a great testament to Communist ruling. Let

:05:53.:05:58.

us go onto the Son and they have said that Spain has done a U-turn on

:05:59.:06:04.

Gibraltar? Is that correct? Yes, there was a big debate about whether

:06:05.:06:11.

this was going to be a pawn in the Brexit thing, Gibraltar, and it

:06:12.:06:14.

looks like the Spanish government is telling us that they are not going

:06:15.:06:18.

to try to disrupt the arrangements, which are very, very important and

:06:19.:06:22.

the people in Gibraltar want to stay connected to the UK. So, I think

:06:23.:06:26.

that is probably the right thing to do. OK. Diana's revenge, that

:06:27.:06:33.

Channel 4 programme that was so controversial, we were talking about

:06:34.:06:38.

it earlier. And the fallout, really, from that continues. You were

:06:39.:06:42.

saying, is this a relevant story because the documentary was on

:06:43.:06:46.

Sunday night and it seems to be continuing to run. This angle looks

:06:47.:06:50.

at the effect now on Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of

:06:51.:06:54.

Cornwall, which is quite a significant and interesting question

:06:55.:06:58.

to ask. Obviously, these tapes that they were discussing backstage half

:06:59.:07:03.

past Princess Diana in a very good light, we now have 20 years between

:07:04.:07:07.

what her death and today to reflect on why she was so unhappy in our

:07:08.:07:11.

marriage and all of these claims that were made about her being

:07:12.:07:14.

unhinged and mentally unstable and this far more kind of mental health

:07:15.:07:18.

conscious times, I think we are looking at a young woman who married

:07:19.:07:22.

into the Royal Family at 19, married for love and did not realise at the

:07:23.:07:25.

time that her husband was seeing another woman and that continued

:07:26.:07:29.

throughout the early stages of their marriage until it collapsed. It does

:07:30.:07:33.

put her in a very positive light, a lot has been said about whether

:07:34.:07:38.

Prince William and Prince Harry will be approved of these dates being

:07:39.:07:40.

aired. Did you think we should have been here? I think Diana probably

:07:41.:07:45.

would have been pleased with the outcome because... Yes, we saw a

:07:46.:07:52.

human person but also quite a strong person as well, we saw somebody,

:07:53.:07:56.

who, I think, probably had quite a lot of fragility with her mental

:07:57.:08:02.

health because of the situation she wasn't, but decided to fight back

:08:03.:08:05.

and fight back she did. There's a line in it, a bit of voice saying,

:08:06.:08:12.

what they feared was strong woman and that is the thing that they felt

:08:13.:08:14.

that they could not handle. So actually, it has -- completely

:08:15.:08:19.

agree, I think it has put her any human light, a good light and many

:08:20.:08:23.

have sympathy for her and I think it does create a big PR problem for

:08:24.:08:30.

Camilla and Charles. The Times has Tesco stopping selling disposable

:08:31.:08:34.

bags. It seems like not so long ago they only started to sell them. The

:08:35.:08:39.

banning of plastic bags has been one of them were successful campaigns in

:08:40.:08:42.

recent times because everyone completely changed their behaviour

:08:43.:08:46.

overnight and that question, do you want a bag and having to pay for it?

:08:47.:08:51.

That has changed things. So you take your own shopping bags? Yes, I do as

:08:52.:08:55.

much as possible but sometimes you do forget. I am like a fiscal

:08:56.:09:01.

stimulus for these bikes are life, I have 150 bags for life in my house

:09:02.:09:06.

because I never ever remember to take them with me! That is what this

:09:07.:09:12.

country needs! Let us talk about the garden -- The Guardian. Several

:09:13.:09:18.

workers in the US have been told they cannot use the term climate

:09:19.:09:23.

change any more. Yes, it has come from the US Department of

:09:24.:09:26.

Agriculture, so therefore straight from the oval office and there's

:09:27.:09:30.

this Donald Trump trying to exert his own climate change denial on the

:09:31.:09:33.

most important department dealing with that? They want the workers to

:09:34.:09:37.

use phrases like weather extremes, we cannot use something about

:09:38.:09:43.

carbon, they cannot use reduce greenhouse gases as a phrase,

:09:44.:09:47.

instead they have to talk about building soil and organic matter and

:09:48.:09:52.

so on, all sounds like jargon but we must have an open and transparent

:09:53.:09:55.

debate about climate change and its possible effects rather than

:09:56.:09:58.

clouding the issue with terminology used. This is just classic Donald

:09:59.:10:06.

Trump, it is like, right, we will completely deny the issue of climate

:10:07.:10:09.

Change Committee has pulled out of the Paris Agreement and this is very

:10:10.:10:12.

interesting, and interesting line at the end that says it has become

:10:13.:10:16.

clear that the previous administration's priority was

:10:17.:10:20.

climate change, the current administration's is not climate

:10:21.:10:24.

change. Donald Trump is doubling down on the fact that he is a

:10:25.:10:27.

sceptic when it comes to climate change, which is very worrying for

:10:28.:10:31.

the planet. Yes, but we do not know that this has come from the White

:10:32.:10:35.

House, do they? I am sure that it has. Staff at the natural resources

:10:36.:10:43.

conservation centre and the Department of Agriculture. He has

:10:44.:10:47.

pulled out of the climate change agreement and has been quite bullish

:10:48.:10:50.

about the fact that he does not have the same thinking on climate change

:10:51.:10:55.

that other world leaders have, so I think he is very much a sceptic when

:10:56.:11:00.

it comes to this. OK, all right. Beulah story we will look at is the

:11:01.:11:04.

cricket. We love our cricket, don't we? We do. I once tried to talk

:11:05.:11:11.

about cricket to Michael Parkinson and he said what the hell do you

:11:12.:11:16.

know about cricket? However, I am familiar with Moeen Ali. I have two

:11:17.:11:22.

older brothers and the cricket mad husband, so there is no escape! This

:11:23.:11:28.

is talking about Moeen Ali being put on a par with Ian Botham because she

:11:29.:11:31.

is such a good all-rounder, I think he got five wickets today. The other

:11:32.:11:36.

great thing, this is jewellery's first captaincy, Alastair Cook

:11:37.:11:40.

handed over the captaincy to him and this is his first series, there was

:11:41.:11:43.

one point when it was going all wrong and now it is going very right

:11:44.:11:49.

and in light of Laura Muir's fourth-place today, which he could

:11:50.:11:52.

not feel for her more, goodness me, at least we have some triumph in

:11:53.:11:55.

another area of town at Old Trafford. But not in London. Moeen

:11:56.:12:01.

Ali, so good with the bat-mac as well, the top scorer. Yes, I

:12:02.:12:06.

understand Ben Stokes did well as well. Moeen Ali committee did not

:12:07.:12:13.

play well at all in India last year and everyone was writing him off.

:12:14.:12:18.

That is a great thing about cricket, one minute you are the top man and

:12:19.:12:24.

the next thing you are just a feather duster. Everyone is selling

:12:25.:12:27.

you a genius again when you do well. So second chances on the bracket are

:12:28.:12:31.

always good to observe, I think. Well, that was fantastic to see. We

:12:32.:12:35.

love watching our cricket. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank

:12:36.:12:40.

you. Very good to have you with us. That is from The Papers and we will

:12:41.:12:44.

see you again very soon. Goodbye for now.

:12:45.:12:54.

Hello once again. The weather has been unsettled of late and continues

:12:55.:12:59.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
