This is BBC News with Martine Croxall.

:00:08.:00:10.

We'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment.

:00:11.:00:14.

Tributes have been paid after a woman was killed when a car

:00:15.:00:21.

ploughed into a crowd of counter-protesters in

:00:22.:00:23.

Meanwhile, President Trump is facing criticism for his response

:00:24.:00:25.

to the violence at the white supremacist rally.

:00:26.:00:32.

The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, and International Trade Secretary

:00:33.:00:34.

Liam Fox have said that any Brexit transition deal would be "time

:00:35.:00:37.

limited", and would not be a "back door" to the UK remaining

:00:38.:00:40.

49 people have died after three days of torrential rain in Nepal.

:00:41.:00:47.

The Red Cross says 100,000 people have been affected,

:00:48.:00:50.

with communications and electricity cut off in many areas.

:00:51.:00:53.

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has said that by next year,

:00:54.:00:55.

learner drivers will be able to have lessons on motorways,

:00:56.:00:58.

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

:00:59.:01:18.

With me are Henry Mance, political correspondent for the FT,

:01:19.:01:21.

and Public Affairs Consultant Jacqui Francis.

:01:22.:01:23.

Nice to have you both here. Welcome. Tomorrow's front pages.

:01:24.:01:30.

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

:01:31.:01:33.

after the party lost its majority in the election.

:01:34.:01:35.

The Telegraph reports a call from the Conservative

:01:36.:01:37.

MP, Jacob Rees-Mogg, to cut stamp duty and income tax.

:01:38.:01:40.

In an article, Mr Rees-Mogg denies speculation that he is considering

:01:41.:01:43.

The Daily Express leads with Brexit and calls

:01:44.:01:49.

for a second referendum from the former Foreign Secretary,

:01:50.:01:51.

The Times reports that government officials

:01:52.:01:53.

are rushing in key Brexit decisions during the summer,

:01:54.:01:56.

whilst several politicians are on holiday.

:01:57.:01:59.

The Financial Times says the head of the European Commission,

:02:00.:02:02.

Jean Claude Junker, is seeking tighter controls on foreign

:02:03.:02:04.

takeovers of EU companies, amid fears of surging

:02:05.:02:07.

in Charlottesville - it has a picture of the alleged

:02:08.:02:13.

The Guardian says that President Trump is facing

:02:14.:02:23.

criticism from all sides, for failing to explicitly condemn

:02:24.:02:29.

And the Daily Mail reports on the NHS drive to reduce

:02:30.:02:34.

the number of early deaths caused by heart disease.

:02:35.:02:36.

We begin with the Guardian. That woman has died at a far right rally.

:02:37.:02:43.

She was at the counter rally. His Republicans as well as Democrats who

:02:44.:02:47.

are waiting in to tell Donald Trump he is not done enough. Yes. I think

:02:48.:02:52.

these images of white supremacist protesters are so offensive to many

:02:53.:02:56.

across the political spectrum in America, so it is no surprise that

:02:57.:03:04.

Marco Rubio, who ran against Donald Trump, and Chris Christie, they have

:03:05.:03:09.

come out saying they need a stronger message from the White House and

:03:10.:03:12.

Donald Trump. Why is there not a strong message? Is one thing to

:03:13.:03:17.

condemn all extremism, but if it is a white supremacist Ravi, that is

:03:18.:03:20.

the first review referred to, surely. Absolutely. But not with

:03:21.:03:26.

Donald Trump. -- rally. He is not going to say that unless - is not

:03:27.:03:36.

there to say that. Why not? Because Italy doesn't believe it. Next he

:03:37.:03:41.

was said is fake news and they word or white supremacist. We have to say

:03:42.:03:47.

that his daughter, Ivanka, has tweeted say there is no place for

:03:48.:03:51.

racism, white supremacist, and neo-Nazis. Which is odd. Her father

:03:52.:03:56.

once said, but you will out specifically. Maybe that is the

:03:57.:04:02.

closest we are going to get. His track record over the last six

:04:03.:04:08.

months, it might get there in the end. He will edge towards what the

:04:09.:04:12.

White House would have preferred from the outset... But think what we

:04:13.:04:18.

are usually criticising for us being too offensive to people on the other

:04:19.:04:22.

side of politics, or to his own officials, and yet here, he is

:04:23.:04:28.

guarding his word essay, hiding behind phrases like many sides being

:04:29.:04:34.

involved in violence, and this is not the plain speaking that many in

:04:35.:04:39.

America are demanding. They say these images should not be on our

:04:40.:04:44.

streets in 2017, and these people are not welcome in Charlottesville,

:04:45.:04:48.

like the mayor said. Philip Hammond accused of caving in on customs

:04:49.:04:55.

deal. There was some suggestion that while Theresa May was away, Philip

:04:56.:04:58.

Hammond was trying to position Brexit quite differently. So a

:04:59.:05:02.

softer version than others might have liked. This is basically saying

:05:03.:05:07.

that it is a hard Brexit, and you are not in control, we are. And it

:05:08.:05:13.

sounds like he was forced to sign this article to say yes, we will no

:05:14.:05:18.

longer be remaining in the customs union. But it is doing and throwing,

:05:19.:05:27.

and we wait for what will happen. -- toing and froing. Decisions have

:05:28.:05:33.

been railroaded through. You have to say, these are just decisions about

:05:34.:05:39.

how we approach the negotiations. We cannot decide what is actually

:05:40.:05:43.

offered in negotiations. So Theresa May's back from a holiday, and this

:05:44.:05:48.

is about Britain setting out its policy on the border in Ireland, and

:05:49.:05:56.

there are some noises about various things. I think we don't know quite

:05:57.:06:02.

enough about what is going on in the Cabinet, what Philip Hammond and

:06:03.:06:06.

Liam Fox have not said is how long the transition deal will last, and

:06:07.:06:10.

all will be in it. That is the kind of thing they have disagreed on in

:06:11.:06:15.

the past. So they have not come to a complete single view on that. We

:06:16.:06:19.

imagine, all we know it is a tight schedule, we have questions as to

:06:20.:06:27.

whether this is actually a serious vision. Just relax, says the Prime

:06:28.:06:35.

Minister, on page four of the Sun. She is back from holidays, and need

:06:36.:06:39.

to get her hand back on the tiller, it never mind what they have all

:06:40.:06:43.

been doing what she has been away. They are trying to tell her that

:06:44.:06:47.

everything is OK, we have got it under control, but I don't think

:06:48.:06:52.

they do. And I don't think she thinks they have. And that is why

:06:53.:06:55.

she is properly going to come out quite strong as saying she wants all

:06:56.:06:59.

these papers out, so that everyone can see that we would all be hard

:07:00.:07:03.

work you have it in while I have been away it is. I just think it is

:07:04.:07:08.

a car crash, is that it? We triggered it too early, a ready is

:07:09.:07:11.

now rushing around saying we have to do this, we have to do that... One

:07:12.:07:16.

hand is a mess, one hand is saying that... Relax. -- one hand is saying

:07:17.:07:24.

this, one hand. Some of the evidence, some of the ideas, they

:07:25.:07:28.

have been saying this for ages. And saying that we need to have a

:07:29.:07:32.

decision made about how much money you are prepared to pay us to leave.

:07:33.:07:38.

You can only put it on for so long. The decision has been made, we are

:07:39.:07:42.

living, so you have to get on with it? The issue is they had no idea

:07:43.:07:47.

was to be so complex. You can imagine the civil servants saying,

:07:48.:07:52.

oh God, another paper, we need to decide this or that. It keeps

:07:53.:07:56.

coming. It is like unravelling a ball, and they are saying, and there

:07:57.:08:04.

is more, and more... 40 years of joined up thinking. Finally on the

:08:05.:08:09.

EU, a plot to get the new EU vote, this comes from just Miliband. He

:08:10.:08:17.

has suggested there should be cut to make some kind of a lot vote. --

:08:18.:08:25.

there should be some kind of follow-up vote. He is still

:08:26.:08:28.

influential enough to provoke fury, even having left. The alternative to

:08:29.:08:36.

except the Brexiteer list to stay in the EU. There is no continue

:08:37.:08:42.

negotiations, no crashing out on any terms. He says democracy didn't stop

:08:43.:08:48.

on the 23rd of June, the day of the referendum, as the -- and so we have

:08:49.:09:00.

the right to make our minds up. And this one is around people buy on

:09:01.:09:06.

package holidays online. I think the precise changes here may not affect

:09:07.:09:10.

that many people. And it is a sign of what Conservatives want to do,

:09:11.:09:15.

and want to be seen as. They want to be seen as the party on the size to

:09:16.:09:19.

make side of businesses, setting of consumer rights, making life easier

:09:20.:09:23.

for those who have not seen huge pay rises. -- they were to be seen as

:09:24.:09:28.

the party on the side of businesses. Can the government intervene in this

:09:29.:09:32.

kind of markets? Because we have seen over the years many firms go

:09:33.:09:37.

bust, and people left high and dry on their holidays. We have been told

:09:38.:09:44.

to go to insurers, we're not there to anything about it. The government

:09:45.:09:48.

is starting to finally said the buck stops with the travel companies. If

:09:49.:09:54.

you do it online, they cannot direct you to speak to various different

:09:55.:10:01.

companies bookings made through, it is made to the website, that company

:10:02.:10:07.

is responsible. And we have some new statistics here in the Times. The

:10:08.:10:13.

rest of Dragon at passengers up 50%. Vuze is available on many flights,

:10:14.:10:21.

but some airlines are doing to me about it. -- arrests of passengers.

:10:22.:10:35.

-- booze is available. Alcohol up their is a recipe for disaster for

:10:36.:10:39.

me. It is horrible for passengers, the aircrew... It makes no sense, a

:10:40.:10:46.

psychotherapist and we would like to be selling these things. And you

:10:47.:10:49.

think 7am, really, do you need to get that drunk to get on the plane?

:10:50.:10:56.

Is on the airport or on the plane? Because of the people do both. We

:10:57.:11:00.

have one example of a plane be devoted on its way back, it was

:11:01.:11:09.

going to Jamaica, Bermuda, and these are people on board who are drunk

:11:10.:11:14.

and abusive. And another man who urinated on everything except for

:11:15.:11:18.

the toilet. Seriously, the stuff on the plane should be able to say no,

:11:19.:11:23.

it is quite simple. But in midair, what you do? Used up giving people

:11:24.:11:29.

the alcohol. If somebody's staggering onto the plane, you

:11:30.:11:33.

should be to work at it is not a good idea to give them any more. --

:11:34.:11:42.

to stop giving people the alcohol. Easing fears of a China. China has

:11:43.:11:47.

money to buy a company is all over the place? Disport AC Milan in

:11:48.:11:51.

Italy, and tried to buy manufacturing companies,

:11:52.:11:57.

agricultural companies. -- it has bought. The government in countries

:11:58.:12:03.

all over the world are concerned about Chinese takeovers, Chinese

:12:04.:12:07.

companies with big money, and they are looking at how they tighten

:12:08.:12:12.

restrictions to make it harder. This is Jean-Claude Juncker, who is ahead

:12:13.:12:15.

figure on this over the channel, but he said his dad at next week and say

:12:16.:12:20.

we have to do is link. Rabat that if they come -- but if a company is

:12:21.:12:26.

looking for money, why not go to China? What is the disadvantage? The

:12:27.:12:30.

question is what China wants for it and how long they are going to stay.

:12:31.:12:37.

It is your resources that China wants. They want a foothold and if

:12:38.:12:43.

you have cold, uranium, or whatever, they thinking actually, great, that

:12:44.:12:46.

is another market where we can... And their markets are not open to

:12:47.:12:54.

Western countries, unlike the way our markets are open to them. And

:12:55.:13:01.

there are human rights problems with China, so people might not

:13:02.:13:06.

necessarily want to do business with those kind of companies. Shall we

:13:07.:13:20.

finish with the Mail? There are 7 million of us walk around with

:13:21.:13:23.

undiagnosed heartthrobs, apparently. How can we find out who is

:13:24.:13:29.

suffering? -- walking around with undiagnosed heart problems. The

:13:30.:13:36.

problem that I have is waiting lists, resources, you know, if you

:13:37.:13:42.

do identify high cholesterol, heart problems, is eager to be a resource

:13:43.:13:46.

that? Are they going to be the doctors, appointments, had you get

:13:47.:13:52.

it sorted? You have to do so now, because down the line, is to cost so

:13:53.:13:58.

much more. Early intervention is cheaper in the long run. But imagine

:13:59.:14:01.

a 7 million people are immediately identified. Consider the population.

:14:02.:14:07.

The phone lines might be slightly jammed on Monday morning as that is

:14:08.:14:11.

the case. This is NHS England sang to local health authorities that

:14:12.:14:17.

they need help identifying Houdet pill might be. There are huge and a

:14:18.:14:23.

death from heart disease every year. -- help identifying who those people

:14:24.:14:27.

might be. Some of these things, if you go to the GP can make a bid by

:14:28.:14:33.

so that exercise or diet. At a low level, there are some things we can

:14:34.:14:37.

do as individuals. Of those people who do need medication, and do need

:14:38.:14:41.

intensive care and support, it costs money. That is the bottomline. Of

:14:42.:14:46.

course, the NHS does not seem to ever have enough money. We can

:14:47.:14:50.

always spend more. That is it for the papers for tonight. Thank you

:14:51.:14:58.

for coming in. Nice to see you on this August night. And coming out

:14:59.:15:02.

next, The Film Review. Good night.
