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

:00:15.:00:17.

With me are Henry Mance, political correspondent

:00:18.:00:25.

and public affairs consultant Jacqui Francis.

:00:26.:00:28.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:29.:00:30.

The i leads with Theresa May's battle to remain Tory leader

:00:31.:00:33.

after the party lost its majority in the election.

:00:34.:00:36.

The Telegraph reports a call from the Conservative MP

:00:37.:00:38.

Jacob Rees Mogg to cut stamp duty and income tax.

:00:39.:00:43.

Mr Mogg denies speculation that he is considering a bid

:00:44.:00:47.

The Daily Express leads with Brexit and claims of a possible second

:00:48.:00:52.

referendum following comments made by the former Labour leadership

:00:53.:00:55.

The Financial Times says that the head of

:00:56.:01:01.

the European Commission, Jean Claude Junker, is seeking

:01:02.:01:03.

for tighter controls on foreign takeovers of EU companies,

:01:04.:01:05.

following fears of Chinese dominance.

:01:06.:01:09.

The Metro leads with Charlottesville and highlights a picture

:01:10.:01:11.

of the alleged killer with a Neo-Nazi group at the rally.

:01:12.:01:15.

And the Daily Mail reports on an NHS battle to tackle early deaths

:01:16.:01:18.

We will begin with the Metro and what has been happening in

:01:19.:01:32.

Charlottesville. Trump swamped by neo-Nazi row. The Lincoln to condemn

:01:33.:01:36.

the bigots specifically, the groups like the KKK. It is just scary

:01:37.:01:44.

because it is almost deja vu. When Trump was complaining people said

:01:45.:01:47.

this was going to happen because when he was questioned about the KKK

:01:48.:01:50.

and white supremacists he dodged that and almost said, who are they?

:01:51.:01:55.

But they still around? Then what happened in Charlottesville he said,

:01:56.:02:01.

it is terrible, bylines on all sides instead of coming straight out like

:02:02.:02:07.

the governor has said and that this was a terrorist act and these were

:02:08.:02:11.

white supremacists. Why is it so difficult to say that? And then it

:02:12.:02:14.

turns out these individuals are quite happy saying the president

:02:15.:02:18.

actually a silent about this so that means they think he agrees with

:02:19.:02:22.

them. This is the President of the United States. The White House is

:02:23.:02:27.

defending him and saying he has been absolutely clear about extremism of

:02:28.:02:33.

all sorts. This is a question of leadership is displaying out and

:02:34.:02:36.

this hasn't had a huge amount of coverage in the UK and the question

:02:37.:02:42.

is what he should do when there is a neo-Nazi protest but also an act of

:02:43.:02:46.

white supremacist terror, one person has been killed and others injured

:02:47.:02:51.

in this event. Should the president get out there and give leadership

:02:52.:02:56.

and actively condemn those who may be seen as the cause and the

:02:57.:03:03.

provoking factor or should they offer attributed White House

:03:04.:03:07.

briefings? Comments by unnamed officials or even by the National

:03:08.:03:10.

Security adviser probably won't be seen as not by many America. It

:03:11.:03:15.

feels in some ways like the world has gone backwards when you see

:03:16.:03:19.

things like this. It was quite chilling to see them the day before

:03:20.:03:23.

the torches on the university campus. There are people in this

:03:24.:03:30.

country who can remember and that just has this almost deja vu, 2017

:03:31.:03:39.

and we are here again in 1935, 19 34. What is going on? The fact he

:03:40.:03:44.

won't, dim condemn them and people around him are doing the usual Trump

:03:45.:03:49.

translation which is he doesn't actually mean it but he doesn't say

:03:50.:03:52.

it but behind what you're saying, read between the lines. Between the

:03:53.:03:56.

lines: Mr President Trump, it sounds like you're them. Let's move on --

:03:57.:04:05.

supporting them. Stamp duty is featured quite a lot in the papers

:04:06.:04:08.

of late. Why are the Conservatives so the bonnet was Mike also Jacob

:04:09.:04:14.

Rees-Mogg himself. If he wanted to explain to them, the prospect of

:04:15.:04:20.

Jacob Rees-Mogg as a Tory leader Prime Minister is being taken

:04:21.:04:24.

seriously at since. He doesn't want that but if he did wanted this is

:04:25.:04:28.

what he would do. It is barely predictable that someone who is an

:04:29.:04:34.

old Italian, a fund manager on the front of the -- read of the

:04:35.:04:38.

Conservative Party thinks that government should cut taxes and give

:04:39.:04:41.

individuals control over their incomes and I think that is the

:04:42.:04:47.

standard agenda but Theresa May at her advisers don't think this is a

:04:48.:04:53.

winning strategy. The stamp duty idea is that if people want to own a

:04:54.:04:55.

house that might be putting of people moving or downsizing because

:04:56.:05:01.

it is such an extra cost for them. At the end of the day is this really

:05:02.:05:05.

about Stamp duty or is it about Jacob Rees-Mogg being the papers yet

:05:06.:05:10.

again. I think he does protest too much. Again I don't want her job, I

:05:11.:05:16.

am a loyal supporter of Theresa May, well, you know, stuff going on TV

:05:17.:05:20.

and stop talking about things and then saying, oh, no, not me, it

:05:21.:05:30.

isn't his job to explain policy and to champion of the Conservative

:05:31.:05:35.

stand for? He also about housing thinks that in the light of the

:05:36.:05:39.

Grenfell Tower disaster we should pull down the Starbucks and replace

:05:40.:05:42.

them with houses with gardens. I'm not sure -- pull down the tower

:05:43.:05:52.

blocks. The opposite of a solution potentially. David Cameron came into

:05:53.:05:55.

a lot of criticism when he was asked about what would have a grease.

:05:56.:06:03.

It's this about the EU but has been raised by the former Foreign

:06:04.:06:15.

Secretary David Miliband saying, the terms of the Brexit deal should be

:06:16.:06:18.

put to a second referendum. This is keeping popping up where he is

:06:19.:06:23.

saying I am not undermining the bug but took place but people really

:06:24.:06:27.

didn't know what the alternative was, and once the terms are agreed

:06:28.:06:31.

wouldn't it be a good idea but the people or for Parliament to get the

:06:32.:06:34.

chance to say whether or not, and it does sound it is going back because

:06:35.:06:40.

the idea that if they say no, so is that you tear up order they say,

:06:41.:06:47.

well, no but go back and negotiate more but we can't go that once we

:06:48.:06:53.

got the terms. And there is a time-limited all of this as well.

:06:54.:06:56.

The clock is ticking. We have to have the other 27 members of the EU

:06:57.:07:01.

agreed to the time period. This proposal is you have either a vote

:07:02.:07:06.

in Parliament or a second referendum but the alternative is staying in

:07:07.:07:09.

the EU. It is not crashing out of the deal which is the Government's

:07:10.:07:17.

you. How likely is it that either of those scenarios that David Miliband

:07:18.:07:20.

putting board will happen? There is no sign of that at. We talk about

:07:21.:07:25.

the very short period of time that things have to unravel but the

:07:26.:07:28.

Conservative government that the beer a realistic prospect. Yes and

:07:29.:07:34.

even an MP. Is he back in the country? He should stick to his

:07:35.:07:43.

well-paid job in a charity. Speaking of what will happen to the

:07:44.:07:48.

Conservatives, Theresa May has had a holiday. We suffer at the

:07:49.:07:53.

Passchendaele commemorations so she wasn't walking in Switzerland the

:07:54.:08:00.

whole time. -- we saw her. This looks terribly bad. It is actually

:08:01.:08:06.

staying on until 2020. You wouldn't expect a lot of voters who didn't

:08:07.:08:09.

support the Conservatives last time to want her to stay until 2022. What

:08:10.:08:16.

matters is whether she has the support because there to supporters

:08:17.:08:18.

and voters will stop at the moment she does and this poll actually

:08:19.:08:26.

shows the Conservatives backing her. They are a pragmatic party. They

:08:27.:08:29.

will keep her there while it is useful. Who would want to take over

:08:30.:08:34.

the party at the moment? Who wants to go through all the Brexit

:08:35.:08:37.

negotiations without the possibility that it is going to be successful?

:08:38.:08:42.

If as you say they are pragmatic, Jacob Rees-Mogg and others, I would

:08:43.:08:46.

stay in the background for a while longer just to see how well she

:08:47.:08:51.

does. Let's go to the Financial Times, Brussels seeking tighter

:08:52.:08:55.

vetting of takeovers to ease fears over China. Normally countries will

:08:56.:08:59.

say having foreign investment is a very good thing, a sign that we are

:09:00.:09:06.

a country on the up. But this is concerned about where investment is

:09:07.:09:11.

coming from. Yes, this is a concern about the fact that China might gain

:09:12.:09:15.

a technological edge by buying European know-how or heavily

:09:16.:09:21.

restricting the role of the EU, so it is China slowly cherry picking

:09:22.:09:24.

the best of our technology organisation and businesses and then

:09:25.:09:28.

telling the EU are but you can't do this and that, and also the EU

:09:29.:09:34.

looking at other countries what are they doing to try and safeguard

:09:35.:09:38.

their industries? But how do they go about bending off huge investment

:09:39.:09:43.

from China? If there is none anywhere else? You could get

:09:44.:09:48.

individual countries, Pieretto said the EU at the moment, to have at

:09:49.:09:54.

least policies to affect these investment and things are

:09:55.:09:57.

manufacturing, billions of dollars going into Europe and China. Or you

:09:58.:10:00.

could have an EU wide system. The problem is that China will look very

:10:01.:10:05.

negatively at anything which looks like discrimination against China.

:10:06.:10:11.

And they would say, and legally it is quite difficult to take action

:10:12.:10:15.

against one particular country. If and when you look at what happened

:10:16.:10:19.

in Africa, huge amounts of investment in China, some people

:10:20.:10:23.

say, there is no one else prepared to invest but others say Africa

:10:24.:10:28.

hasn't benefited. Yes, it is a double-edged sword. You need the

:10:29.:10:30.

investment and build up the infrastructure but the question is

:10:31.:10:34.

what is the ability to control your own resources once China get and if

:10:35.:10:40.

you decide to say thank you very much we have had enough, I doubt

:10:41.:10:44.

China will go, sorry, you would like us to leave now? We have been for 20

:10:45.:10:48.

years and rebuttal at the infrastructure and you would like us

:10:49.:10:51.

to leave, don't think so. Let's look at the Daily Mail. Apparently 7

:10:52.:10:57.

million others are going on diagnosed with heart problems. Early

:10:58.:11:05.

death is a consequence. This is a story that new government strategy

:11:06.:11:08.

is going to ensure that millions more of us are given the opportunity

:11:09.:11:14.

to have those potential problems checked out. The question is

:11:15.:11:18.

obviously around cost at a time when the NHS in England is struggling and

:11:19.:11:22.

says it said it doesn't quite enough my double bill of the obligations

:11:23.:11:27.

imposed on it. But it will ask local health authorities to ensure those

:11:28.:11:33.

identified ardour given correct treatment. Are they good for you or

:11:34.:11:44.

are they not? It is one thing being diagnosed with is that the money

:11:45.:11:46.

available to give you the best fitting that you want? Can you get

:11:47.:11:51.

the resources. At the end of the day it is something that needs to be

:11:52.:11:54.

done because down the line it will cost so much more of these

:11:55.:11:58.

individuals if they are not examined and advised at the best way to keep

:11:59.:12:02.

themselves healthy but it is the balance of trying to say now or

:12:03.:12:06.

later you have to pay for it. Prevention is better than cure but

:12:07.:12:10.

with these people if walking around, it might be me, you never know. You

:12:11.:12:19.

just don't know. That's look at the sun, page two, the death traps in

:12:20.:12:22.

your kitchen is the headline. Ten fires a day because of white goods

:12:23.:12:26.

like bridge features and washing machines. It is talking about nearly

:12:27.:12:33.

10,000 deaths in three years from various appliances and they're

:12:34.:12:37.

getting a little bit about the fact that the Grenfell Tower buyer. Ten

:12:38.:12:43.

by -- fire. It was started by a fridge. I am not sure, what are they

:12:44.:12:51.

calling for? In terms of these things are checked. Obviously goods

:12:52.:12:55.

are recalled when they are issues. Is it a story? You can see the is a

:12:56.:13:05.

picture of there, one of our possible paper reviewers, also

:13:06.:13:12.

consumer rights champion. She made lots of recommendations in safety,

:13:13.:13:16.

what has happened? I don't know the details of that review but it is

:13:17.:13:20.

interesting to see how Grenfell Tower has changed the debate around

:13:21.:13:25.

regulation. Until really a couple of wood so good this was all red tape

:13:26.:13:29.

that we wanted to get rid of it as quickly as possible and make it

:13:30.:13:33.

easier for businesses and now there is a recognition that there is a

:13:34.:13:37.

potentially lethal cost to making things, deregulating wings and

:13:38.:13:42.

cutting back regulations. The number of buyers the paper shows from these

:13:43.:13:48.

appliances has gone down marginally but basically the same thing 2014

:13:49.:13:53.

and 2016 washing machines are the most common of fire causes. I think

:13:54.:14:02.

we don't know the actual causes of Grenfell Tower in depth but I think

:14:03.:14:05.

they will be a new attitude towards regulation. Let's finish with the

:14:06.:14:13.

front of the Metro. Flying low, a picture of Marlboro. A good way to

:14:14.:14:19.

end, back on top as he allows out and stop he wasn't quite back on top

:14:20.:14:24.

yesterday. Silver. I remember there was a certain advert that said you

:14:25.:14:27.

don't win silver, you lose gold, which was... There he was running

:14:28.:14:35.

his five K that people do under part one on a Saturday morning. The end

:14:36.:14:40.

of an extraordinary career. Absolutely and it takes an awful lot

:14:41.:14:43.

for somebody to stay at the top of the game for so long. Certainly hats

:14:44.:14:48.

off to him and he is on his way to marathons that he is going to start

:14:49.:14:52.

doing? That is the natural thing to progress to. When was watching last

:14:53.:14:58.

night, he isn't a tall man at all but the length of his stride is

:14:59.:15:02.

really shocking and I don't know why I have noticed it before, but he is

:15:03.:15:07.

still being dogged by those scandals around his coach, Alberto Salazar,

:15:08.:15:13.

who was investing dated in the United States for dubbing and he has

:15:14.:15:18.

always defied -- denied he had done anything wrong and Mo Farah is

:15:19.:15:21.

saying it will affect his legacy and they are sick of defending himself.

:15:22.:15:25.

He was a bit tetchy talking to the media. He would probably say, I want

:15:26.:15:33.

to go out as a great champion, Sir Mo Farah, Olympic champion, World

:15:34.:15:35.

Championship medal winner and you keep asking about drugs. There is no

:15:36.:15:40.

escape from it at the moment with athletics particularly when we see

:15:41.:15:44.

people who have been caught cheating and then they come back. They have

:15:45.:15:50.

to do something about it because any kind of mention of drugs, an athlete

:15:51.:15:53.

will because we asked the question. That is it that this hour but Henry

:15:54.:16:05.

or Henri as it says, Jacqui Francis will be back again at 11:30pm.

:16:06.:16:23.

The It really has been a gorgeous day for many

:16:24.:16:27.

of us with lots of blue sky

:16:28.:16:30.

I hope you managed to get out and enjoy.

:16:31.:16:33.
