Hello and welcome to a look ahead at what the papers will be bringing us.

:00:17.:00:28.

Good to see you both. Let's look at the front pages and bring you up to

:00:29.:00:32.

date. Metal picks up on the story of the government proposals for the

:00:33.:00:36.

border in Ireland and warning of a back door into Britain. Also on

:00:37.:00:39.

immigration The Express covers figures showing the number of EU

:00:40.:00:43.

nationals in the UK has risen. The high report and A-level results have

:00:44.:00:46.

come out on Thursday, saying more topically places than ever before

:00:47.:00:50.

are available and the Telegraph leads with a comment piece from

:00:51.:00:55.

Theresa May's from adviser who describes university tuition fees as

:00:56.:00:59.

the Ponzi scheme. The Times runs with the resignation of Sarah

:01:00.:01:03.

Champion who is leading the Shadow Cabinet after comments she made

:01:04.:01:06.

about sexual grooming. Financial Times reports the US central bank

:01:07.:01:11.

criticising attempts to weaken bank regulation. The Guardian has the FA

:01:12.:01:13.

under pressure over payments allegedly made to the player after

:01:14.:01:20.

he made a brilliant complaint. -- after she made a billion complaint.

:01:21.:01:23.

Daniel Craig remain as James Bond after saying he would quit the role.

:01:24.:01:28.

I think he said he would rather slit his wrists and play the role again.

:01:29.:01:36.

The Brexit back door. Nigel Farage is putting his fingers of alarmism

:01:37.:01:42.

on this and that is a shame because the good people of the island of

:01:43.:01:47.

Ireland deserve better than that. This is an enormous opportunity, you

:01:48.:01:51.

don't want borders are about offences watchtowers, and there is a

:01:52.:01:56.

lovely photograph on the front of the Metro showing where the border

:01:57.:02:00.

is. Cars pass freely. Guns change that. Put on immigration border on

:02:01.:02:06.

the airports and ports in Northern Ireland and then turn it into Hong

:02:07.:02:11.

Kong, a fabulous place where young people can think, if I get a skilled

:02:12.:02:17.

as a future for me and business, let business do what it does with his

:02:18.:02:20.

creates jobs, generate profits and pay tax. If you can do anything in

:02:21.:02:27.

can show this is a better thing than can show this is a better thing than

:02:28.:02:31.

beatings for Britain. Some people, not just arrived, a lot of people

:02:32.:02:36.

see this as a back door for Britain and control being handed to the EU.

:02:37.:02:41.

If Brexit meant Brexit it meant that Britain would reassert control and

:02:42.:02:46.

EU nationals would not be able to come into Ireland or use it for

:02:47.:02:55.

direct bikes from London or Belfast. He will move onto studies which look

:02:56.:03:06.

at... EU migrants have come to live in Britain after Brexit, this will

:03:07.:03:09.

be a PR nightmare for some Brexit fears that is Brexit was meant to be

:03:10.:03:13.

about taking back control and copy them of movement, which look like it

:03:14.:03:18.

will continue. That is what is described in the Times as a David

:03:19.:03:23.

Cameron plan was rejected. 'S Henry stop rejoicing in your remaining.

:03:24.:03:29.

This is about what you can always do and always have been able to do, if

:03:30.:03:34.

someone wants to come and live here in the democratically elected

:03:35.:03:37.

governments decides it, that is what controls about. As opposed to the

:03:38.:03:41.

unelected unaccountable bloke in Brussels. We had a referendum and

:03:42.:03:47.

people said they wanted to end freedom of movement but now it is

:03:48.:03:53.

coming back. It says here companies wanted to hire EU workers and they

:03:54.:03:57.

will have to buy the sponsorship permits. In other words if you want

:03:58.:04:01.

to work here and take the job then let me be clear,... What you're

:04:02.:04:07.

seeing as you will be able to jump on your plane in Vilnius, London

:04:08.:04:14.

Dublin, get over the border... What is wrong with that? The issue will

:04:15.:04:19.

be you will not be able to work. Spot on. You need an employer will

:04:20.:04:24.

have to pay for it. That is something this paper suggests comes

:04:25.:04:26.

from a Democratic elected government in Britain as opposed to some bloke

:04:27.:04:30.

sitting in Brussels who no one voted for. However we voted against this

:04:31.:04:37.

kind of thing. No we didn't! This is controlled. There will still be lots

:04:38.:04:42.

of people who can come to this country without the job, spent a lot

:04:43.:04:47.

of time here and look for a job and the time possibly apply for

:04:48.:04:55.

benefits. Yarn as alarmist as Nigel Farage. It is a four-year waiting

:04:56.:05:01.

period, which David Cameron suggested. This is about control and

:05:02.:05:09.

Westminster, not Brussels. People voted for... And happy for the

:05:10.:05:13.

sovereignty of this Parliament but last year the Brexit here said it

:05:14.:05:16.

was about control of freedom of movement. I will control the

:05:17.:05:21.

movement of freedom now. We moved to The Guardian. This is good stuff. I

:05:22.:05:27.

suspect you have sat on some business advisory councils. I have.

:05:28.:05:35.

Donald Trump responds to people resigning from him is to shut them

:05:36.:05:39.

down to the current design. Summary said to me, he did not approve it

:05:40.:05:47.

something I did in the CBI and he said I am resigning and I said you

:05:48.:05:52.

have to belong to it first! I think he's doing exactly right thing, spot

:05:53.:05:55.

on, position yourself away from party politics in the dock of left

:05:56.:05:59.

or right and what you do to take the side of decency and everybody

:06:00.:06:04.

understands what decency means. This should be the, business should not

:06:05.:06:08.

be following logical views or every other and I think the business

:06:09.:06:11.

advisory councils work if people will listen to the advice. But in

:06:12.:06:16.

this respect you do not go associated with this and what

:06:17.:06:21.

worries me is the cliche is that evil flourishes when good men do

:06:22.:06:25.

nothing, and vacuums are filled. When people pull out of the middle

:06:26.:06:30.

ground left or right, and when they pull out because the vilified then

:06:31.:06:33.

the vacuum is filled by extremism. It happens in this country with the

:06:34.:06:37.

Labour Party and it happens over there with Trump. Different politics

:06:38.:06:41.

but the same principle. It is amazing that these business leaders

:06:42.:06:45.

have decided to resign from these business councils because of how

:06:46.:06:50.

Trump behaved. We have known this all this time, he campaigned and he

:06:51.:06:53.

called at the old right to get the called at the old right to get the

:06:54.:06:58.

nomination, then to win the election so he's not telling us anything new.

:06:59.:07:02.

Trying to claim there is an equivalence between fighting against

:07:03.:07:05.

fascism and being a fascist and wanting to go back to the days where

:07:06.:07:09.

you can lynch black people for fun and kill dues and kill gay people or

:07:10.:07:14.

whatever is extraordinary. Slowly but surely it is dawning on

:07:15.:07:16.

Republicans that this man is not set. We had in the news channel

:07:17.:07:22.

earlier from an African-American lady, Tracey, she is the chairman of

:07:23.:07:31.

the Ohio black Republicans and she was clear that the president had

:07:32.:07:33.

done the right thing in criticising all sides. That was her view. Did

:07:34.:07:39.

she expect the antifascist turn of the sink and by and we shall

:07:40.:07:44.

overcome and hope that the good folk of the KKK would not run out of

:07:45.:07:48.

town? The one thing he should have done and did not do, he should have

:07:49.:07:54.

called them out, so instead of seeing all sides, he should've said,

:07:55.:08:00.

you, the Ku Klux Klan, and then he should have said you, the old left.

:08:01.:08:06.

In other words he should've called them out on both sides by seeing

:08:07.:08:11.

both think you are right,... It is like the magistrate in the song

:08:12.:08:23.

stand the Hollow used to sing,. The funny thing is in situations like

:08:24.:08:28.

this, if it weren't for the likes of anti-fascists or whatever you call

:08:29.:08:31.

the people would have been killed. Because they were protecting them.

:08:32.:08:37.

When you put a point that I do agree with is that these things get

:08:38.:08:41.

momentum and a move from it is all right and that is OK and one day end

:08:42.:08:45.

up with murder in the long-awaited deal with this is stopping it. Thank

:08:46.:08:54.

you both. We move the I. Despite this fine photograph Daniel Craig

:08:55.:09:00.

Backus Pond. It looks like there are now fewer students chasing arrested

:09:01.:09:07.

places. I get worried about this because A-levels are getting easier.

:09:08.:09:12.

I am not saying, I am not decrying the huge effort, and the parents who

:09:13.:09:17.

will be watching this to say a few kids you are my child went through

:09:18.:09:22.

how dare you. I understand that. But it is the system is getting easier

:09:23.:09:27.

to progress. What we should be doing is being more selective not about as

:09:28.:09:34.

the chorus good enough but as the questionable for you? One of the

:09:35.:09:39.

papers, the same heading, university fees. Nick Timothy if I can remind

:09:40.:09:51.

viewers as the man who committed complacent Harry Keeley is a person

:09:52.:09:55.

who had a 23 percentage point lead in the polls and for some reason and

:09:56.:10:00.

love writing for the Daily Telegraph but he said he paid a visit to the

:10:01.:10:08.

barber. The young man who cut my hair told me he graduated from

:10:09.:10:11.

Southampton University with a degree in football studies. I doubted

:10:12.:10:16.

whether he thought his qualification was worth the debt he would carry

:10:17.:10:20.

for 30 years. Well with great respect young man don't get a degree

:10:21.:10:26.

in football studies. I bet it was something like the economics of

:10:27.:10:32.

football. It says here he graduated... It is possible he got

:10:33.:10:38.

the facts wrong. The market in this from A-levels through to what you do

:10:39.:10:44.

with those A-levels... It is a market greeted by government doesn't

:10:45.:10:51.

it? It is a market set up by the government to -- for both parties.

:10:52.:10:57.

This middle-class norm of what I want is for my children to go to

:10:58.:11:00.

university when actually seeing are you getting value for money for your

:11:01.:11:07.

debt? And can you afford to pay, a vice Chancellor getting 451 grand a

:11:08.:11:12.

year! It is a big job but responsibility. But as they say some

:11:13.:11:19.

journeys offer students now return journeys offer students now return

:11:20.:11:22.

for their investment. In a fused 19 and he will find it tomorrow whether

:11:23.:11:27.

not he got into the uniquely once. He won't go into a Ponzi scheme! We

:11:28.:11:35.

should point out the fantastic site then, Digby Jones who is also a

:11:36.:11:41.

part-time crew ship entertainer. It is true you entertain people on

:11:42.:11:45.

cruise ships from time to time. Pedal when a red coat or hold ice

:11:46.:11:50.

cream cones. I think the word entertainment could be loosely

:11:51.:11:54.

applied. What I'm thrilled to bits about is I wrote to the dizzy

:11:55.:12:01.

heights of sub Lieutenant, but this is the biggest ship the United

:12:02.:12:05.

Kingdom has ever built. This is the biggest ship the Royal Navy have had

:12:06.:12:09.

and there will be two of them in the projection of self-confidence and

:12:10.:12:16.

power around the world will go out, have a bit today regardless of

:12:17.:12:18.

colour or creed or religion or orientation or anything else should

:12:19.:12:22.

be standing a few feet Hollow. Really? Leeway to rubbish this? I am

:12:23.:12:32.

not rubbishing anything. It depends on your political perspective on the

:12:33.:12:36.

city and how you see Britain and its empire, it depends if you... Empire?

:12:37.:12:41.

We haven't got one. It is the anniversary of partition. Do you --

:12:42.:12:49.

why do use the word empire? We don't have one? Do not have MPs and CBEs?

:12:50.:12:56.

The practical question is why do we need it? Against who? Unique

:12:57.:13:02.

airfield is the world and you won't get the class for the world really

:13:03.:13:07.

is as mobile airfield. Cantlie asker special friends the Americans to

:13:08.:13:14.

help us out? All please! You're one of those people who criticise until

:13:15.:13:21.

you need the help. How will I need the help? You will be on holiday

:13:22.:13:27.

somewhere and you will be in trouble. It will be Palmerston

:13:28.:13:34.

altered again. But in the meantime let's celebrate something. The great

:13:35.:13:41.

British back off, Henry? The one of the ratios between the BBC and

:13:42.:13:45.

Channel 4, the BBC had a great British bake off and now has an

:13:46.:13:50.

usual with Nadia Hussain. They will have a ratings battle but it looks

:13:51.:13:54.

as though the BBC has decided to withdraw from the field. Probably

:13:55.:14:00.

wise. A discreet withdrawal. And tonight it is 40 years since Elvis

:14:01.:14:08.

died, and tonight is the day when Boycott scored as hundreds hundreds

:14:09.:14:14.

and James Bond is coming back. Something to be proud of, even

:14:15.:14:19.

reclaiming Elvis. If you believe we still have an empire then why

:14:20.:14:23.

shouldn't we have Elvis? Thank you both very much. I can confirm Elvis

:14:24.:14:29.

has left the building. You can see the front pages of the papers online

:14:30.:14:33.

on the BBC News website seven days a week. If you need cheering up why

:14:34.:14:41.

not listen back to these too later on? Thank you and good night to

:14:42.:14:46.

Henry and Digby. Next up, the weather.

:14:47.:14:56.

Good evening. Sunshine and showers on the way tomorrow but before that
