Hello, this is BBC News with myself Bury...

:00:14.:00:25.

I'll first off, let's look at the headlines, eight people have died in

:00:26.:00:31.

a crash involving a minibus and two lorries and the M1 in Milton Keynes,

:00:32.:00:35.

two people have been arrested in connection with the incident. Three

:00:36.:00:40.

police officers were injured on Friday night whilst arresting a man

:00:41.:00:46.

brandishing a four foot sort outside Buckingham Palace. Tropical storm

:00:47.:00:50.

Harvey continues inland bringing heavy rain and flooding to parts of

:00:51.:00:57.

taxes. King Felipe of Spain joined thousands of people marching through

:00:58.:01:01.

Barcelona demonstrating their defiance after the recent attacks in

:01:02.:01:02.

the country. Well, hello and welcome to look

:01:03.:01:23.

ahead what the papers will bring us tomorrow. With me I've got the

:01:24.:01:31.

editor politics home and Rachel will be having a chat. We will start with

:01:32.:01:36.

the mail on Sunday which oppose that Theresa May intends to crack down on

:01:37.:01:41.

excessive bosses pay. Meanwhile the Observer leads with the news that

:01:42.:01:46.

Labour won the UK to remain in the single market for several years

:01:47.:01:52.

post-Brexit. The Sunday Times says more than 100 academy school chain

:01:53.:01:55.

heads are earning more than the Prime Minister. The Sunday express

:01:56.:02:01.

front page is dedicated to that fatal crash on the M1. Which eight

:02:02.:02:08.

people lost their lives in. And the Sunday Telegraph reports on

:02:09.:02:14.

weaknesses in Parliament's security exposed by pests. That is a taste of

:02:15.:02:17.

some of the front pages you will be waking up to on Sunday morning. They

:02:18.:02:23.

and Kevin it is lovely to have you here this evening. Sherry start with

:02:24.:02:31.

the Observer and Labour. Yes, in the face of it the seams a move in their

:02:32.:02:41.

Brexit stance. Labour's position has been confused it is safe to say over

:02:42.:02:46.

the last few months as to where they stood in terms of Britain being a

:02:47.:02:49.

member of the single market, the customs union after Brexit. A lot of

:02:50.:02:54.

Labour MPs would like the party to have a much stronger campaigning to

:02:55.:03:02.

stay in the single market. Jeremy Corbyn up until now has resisted

:03:03.:03:07.

that. Kia Starman the shadow Brexit secretary said that at least during

:03:08.:03:13.

the transition period, so everything up to four minutes after Brexit,

:03:14.:03:20.

that Labour would support maintaining single market membership

:03:21.:03:23.

and Customs union membership which is quite significant and will please

:03:24.:03:27.

a la labour backbenchers who have been quite worried about the party's

:03:28.:03:34.

stands on the situation. Bright in that transition time we would have

:03:35.:03:38.

to carry on paying, do we have any more details about Busquets what

:03:39.:03:42.

happens during the transition period, paying into the EU budget?

:03:43.:03:49.

Yes, I think this move has come about, Labour making clear what its

:03:50.:03:56.

position would be is in reaction to the Conservatives announcing what

:03:57.:03:59.

the transition period will look like so we had announcement a couple of

:04:00.:04:03.

weeks ago saying that the Conservative government would want

:04:04.:04:06.

upon row of the customs union and the single market which is a weird

:04:07.:04:10.

thing to do in a transition period because the transition period is

:04:11.:04:17.

supposed to be a buffer about exiting those two things. It is more

:04:18.:04:23.

of a continuation. More like transition means Brexit, it is the

:04:24.:04:26.

Conservative saying we're leading these things during the period that

:04:27.:04:31.

we should be transitioning out of these things. It makes no sense

:04:32.:04:33.

which is why we're seeing the Labour Party adding clarity and a

:04:34.:04:38.

distinction to say, know if there will be a transitional period which

:04:39.:04:42.

then needs to be then these things need to stay, there needs to be some

:04:43.:04:46.

sort of continuity in these things so that we can accept in a way that

:04:47.:04:53.

does Britain less damage. I think it is significant because just one

:04:54.:04:56.

month ago Jeremy Corbyn was on the Marr show where he was pretty clear

:04:57.:05:02.

that leaving you mean she can't be in the single market and we do, even

:05:03.:05:08.

if there was a transitional period, leave the EU on March the 21st 2019

:05:09.:05:12.

which indicates he would not support maintaining single market membership

:05:13.:05:17.

during the transitional period. I think there has been an internal

:05:18.:05:23.

battle in the Labour Party with Kia stammer wanting to pursue a softer

:05:24.:05:27.

Brexit and it looks as though he has come out on top and as I have said

:05:28.:05:32.

judging from the social media reaction since the front page came

:05:33.:05:35.

out about an hour ago it seems to have gone down pretty well with

:05:36.:05:42.

Labour MPs. OK, the independent, one of our lead story is as hurricane

:05:43.:05:47.

Harvey now a tropical storm. But, Houston are very worried about this

:05:48.:05:53.

because there is so much of the US economy based around Houston and the

:05:54.:05:57.

oil drilling and the waterways around that Texas coastline, as well

:05:58.:06:03.

but it seems as if the paper as saying that at least eight people

:06:04.:06:09.

have been killed so far. It's obviously very worried, I had

:06:10.:06:12.

someone on the radio saying that hurricane Katrina was the last big

:06:13.:06:17.

horror came to hit the United States in 2005 and it is amazing how

:06:18.:06:23.

ill-prepared they are despite all the measures that were supposed to

:06:24.:06:27.

be taking how ill-prepared the United States is for this horror

:06:28.:06:33.

came and clearly, as you say, it is potentially very, very bad for the

:06:34.:06:40.

US economy. Staying with the Independent, big business lobbyist

:06:41.:06:45.

on praxis talks. No real surprise is it? Does it make any worst that not

:06:46.:06:51.

surprised that the businesses are dominating the praxis process as we

:06:52.:06:55.

predicted they would be. This is a report coming from two campaign

:06:56.:07:02.

groups. And they have highlighted how the Department for exiting be

:07:03.:07:10.

you as predominantly seen a single investment banks having more

:07:11.:07:14.

meetings of these officials then all the big UK trade unions put together

:07:15.:07:18.

which is exactly where everyone has warned about with a conservative

:07:19.:07:22.

excerpt from the Yukon that ie it will look to favouring big business.

:07:23.:07:30.

-- a conservative except from the United union. At the expense of

:07:31.:07:34.

everyone else, union should be one of the major groups in that room, of

:07:35.:07:38.

course they should. This will affect so many things to do with workers

:07:39.:07:44.

and employment and employment rights and employment benefits and

:07:45.:07:47.

protections. The idea that the government would prefer to meet with

:07:48.:07:54.

an investment banker over a trade unionist, I found worrying. Wow the

:07:55.:08:00.

paper points out the TEU tax forced had met with EU tax lobbyists. That

:08:01.:08:09.

does make OK. No it doesn't. The Sunday Telegraph also go with

:08:10.:08:15.

Brussels and Brexit. Brexit, we have to get used to it for at least the

:08:16.:08:21.

next two years it will dominate the debate in this country. There was

:08:22.:08:23.

nothing else the government can do in terms of its domestic agenda. The

:08:24.:08:30.

whole weight of Whitehall and the civil service is now just having to

:08:31.:08:33.

focus on Brexit to make the best of it. Next week, Monday David Davis

:08:34.:08:42.

goes to Brussels, again for the start of the latest round of Brexit

:08:43.:08:49.

talks and we are told that he will be more bullish and go there and

:08:50.:08:54.

tell the EU that they have got to start sharing a bit more

:08:55.:09:01.

flexibility. That will do it! Britain has been, and a purpose

:09:02.:09:04.

their kids will love these things, the last couple of weeks open

:09:05.:09:08.

publishing all these policy papers to set up their position so he is

:09:09.:09:14.

saying we're doing this work you got to metres halfway so it could get a

:09:15.:09:21.

bit feisty this week, I think. Open to now the US shown no willingness

:09:22.:09:29.

whatsoever to try and meet any of the UK's demands. And saying that

:09:30.:09:34.

the EU has to stop dragging its feet. That's weird because that is

:09:35.:09:38.

what the EU has been saying about the UK, and I've got to the stage

:09:39.:09:41.

where you can hear the pleading in their towns where they are saying,

:09:42.:09:46.

we want some clarity, a bit, anything to show as a bit of

:09:47.:09:51.

paperwork, something we can proceed with. You are right, Britain is

:09:52.:09:59.

desperate to move onto trade talks, the future relationship and the EU

:10:00.:10:02.

are saying basically we will not do that until you tell us, comment we

:10:03.:10:07.

reach an agreement on the divorce Bill, the Irish border, and he uses

:10:08.:10:12.

the rights. Three areas where they are miles apart. How they come

:10:13.:10:15.

together on matters such as short space of time I do not know how they

:10:16.:10:20.

can do. It is all about salaries into the papers will start off with

:10:21.:10:26.

the mail. Rachel, Theresa May is on the warpath. She think she is she

:10:27.:10:32.

has written a piece in the mail on Sunday talking about, the excesses

:10:33.:10:39.

and irresponsibility of big businesses with their culture of

:10:40.:10:43.

greed, of fat cat buses. I would issue men imagine that this is

:10:44.:10:48.

coming after the snap election where it became clear that Labour Party

:10:49.:10:53.

which talked about addressing the rampant wealth and inequalities in

:10:54.:10:57.

this country proved to be really popular, the kind of policies there

:10:58.:11:02.

are habit patterns about resonated with the public and resulted in an

:11:03.:11:07.

unprecedented and unexpected 4% richer. It seems to me that Theresa

:11:08.:11:14.

May is trying to position herself or the Conservative Party is one that

:11:15.:11:18.

is also interested in tackling wealth inequalities Kubot the

:11:19.:11:21.

trouble I have is that nobody would believe that of the Conservative

:11:22.:11:25.

Party that it has been consistently associated with looking after

:11:26.:11:31.

culprits is and elites. Has been responsible for some of the public

:11:32.:11:35.

sees have cemented such wealth and inequalities in this country.

:11:36.:11:39.

Indeed, everything she said so far such as workers on boardroom

:11:40.:11:45.

skirmishes backed out. To be fair on the first day she became prime

:11:46.:11:49.

ministers she said on the steps of Downing Street, she talked about

:11:50.:11:55.

reducing... Improving quality in the country. A couple of the policy

:11:56.:11:59.

proposals were workers on boards, which has been pitched, another was

:12:00.:12:05.

allowing shareholders to vote on executive pay. Ditched. It would

:12:06.:12:12.

appear there are a lot of warm words but no firm proposals. Because of

:12:13.:12:15.

the puzzle of the action she got anything to and the last Tory

:12:16.:12:20.

backbenchers Braun and mile from the stuff. Now we have fat cat salaries

:12:21.:12:30.

of academy school chiefs. We shocked by this, I was. 440,000 was one. Try

:12:31.:12:39.

it is shocking and abhorrent that we should hear about more than 100 of

:12:40.:12:46.

the school chiefs any more than a is, one at 420,000. This is a time

:12:47.:12:55.

when schools, are being cut. They are facing cuts. We hear about

:12:56.:13:00.

school teachers helping feed their pupils who are coming to school

:13:01.:13:04.

hungry. We hear that parents are asked to help donate to the school.

:13:05.:13:09.

Sky paper textbooks. It's galling. But at the same time... They are

:13:10.:13:23.

looking at the shame of schools. No. At our eldest daughter 's school the

:13:24.:13:28.

headteacher has proposed to turn it into an academy, a lot of parents

:13:29.:13:32.

are open arms about it. And one of the things is a multi-academy trust,

:13:33.:13:36.

so one teacher would become a chief executive of all of these schools,

:13:37.:13:40.

you can see why it is attractive because of the salaries. This is all

:13:41.:13:50.

paid for by ours, all public money. And other reason not to put profit

:13:51.:13:54.

in the things that we will I like schools and public services. Very

:13:55.:14:00.

quickly, the princes of again honouring their of light. The 20th

:14:01.:14:08.

anniversary which can't believe. And it is difficult time for the two

:14:09.:14:11.

princes. I think they will pay tribute to their mother and the bits

:14:12.:14:15.

they probably won't speak about it again I would've thought. It must be

:14:16.:14:21.

very difficult. Brave of them to do it. Rachel Kevin will enjoy the best

:14:22.:14:27.

macro way to and Kevin will and joiners in about half an hour.

:14:28.:14:29.
