And the Daily Mail reports on the NHS drive to reduce

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


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


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


these images of white supremacist protesters are so offensive to many


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Hammond was trying to position Brexit quite differently. So a


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Italy, and tried to buy manufacturing companies,


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


all over the world are concerned about Chinese takeovers, Chinese


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


next, The Film Review. Good night.
