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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are John Crowley, Managing Editor of Newsweek Media

:00:19.:00:22.

Group and the broadcaster Lynn Faulds Wood.

:00:23.:00:27.

Lovely to see you. We will get on with our chat in a moment. First

:00:28.:00:40.

off, a reminder of what some of the front pages will look like tomorrow

:00:41.:00:41.

morning. The Telegraph says that the Brexit

:00:42.:00:43.

talks between the UK and the EU have descended into a slanging match

:00:44.:00:49.

with the EU's Chief Negotiator, Michel Barnier being

:00:50.:00:51.

called 'unhelpful'. Whereas The Times picks up

:00:52.:00:55.

the frustration of the other side in its headline: 'It's time to get

:00:56.:01:00.

serious, Brussels tells Britain'. The FT says that Theresa May is set

:01:01.:01:04.

for disappointment this week so the paper claims,

:01:05.:01:16.

the Japanese government won't rush The Metro reports that the driver,

:01:17.:01:18.

accused of killing eight people in a motorway crash on the M1,

:01:19.:01:22.

was twice over The lead in the Express is that

:01:23.:01:25.

arthritis sufferers, who take Ibuprofen for pain relief,

:01:26.:01:28.

are greater risk of high blood who take Ibuprofen for pain relief,

:01:29.:01:32.

are at greater risk of high blood The Daily Mail highlights the case

:01:33.:01:35.

of a five-year-old Christian, The Daily Mail highlights the case

:01:36.:01:46.

of a five-year-old Christian girl, who it says, was forced to live

:01:47.:01:49.

with Muslim foster carers. That is some of our front pages.

:01:50.:01:56.

Let's kick-off. We start with the Telegraph. It has all been about

:01:57.:01:59.

Brexit today, it is round three of the talks and Britain is not happy

:02:00.:02:03.

with Michel Barnier. I don't think this has descended into a slanging

:02:04.:02:08.

match, it started off a slanging match, remember Boris telling them

:02:09.:02:11.

they could whistle for money and Michel Barnier, who strikes me as

:02:12.:02:16.

being a very urbane, great example of somebody who is calm under

:02:17.:02:21.

pressure, he said the only sound I can hear is the ticking clock. We

:02:22.:02:25.

don't seem to be getting anywhere any fast -- very fast command to

:02:26.:02:31.

have yet another slanging match, there is also tough words being

:02:32.:02:36.

used, such small print on the front of the Telegraph I have to put on my

:02:37.:02:41.

glasses. A senior source in Britain says Michel Barnier's attack is

:02:42.:02:44.

inconsistent, ill judged, ill considered and unhelpful. What cards

:02:45.:02:50.

have we got to play in this game at the moment? It seems to me that

:02:51.:02:53.

Michel Barnier is saying, show us your hand, and we are saying, no, we

:02:54.:02:58.

can't show you are a handful stop what was the phrase David Davis

:02:59.:03:04.

used? Constructive ambiguity. The news is taking a pop at him because

:03:05.:03:09.

he accused Britain of ambiguity today. I think there is a bit of

:03:10.:03:13.

mudslinging going on. We were told last year to take back control, we

:03:14.:03:17.

didn't quite realised that this hard negotiating phase which we are in

:03:18.:03:22.

now, it is tricky, and whether you are a Brexiteer or remain, whether

:03:23.:03:26.

you agree or not, there is two very men staring at each other down the

:03:27.:03:31.

barrel, it is not thinly veiled taunts, they are stabbing each other

:03:32.:03:36.

in the front and it is all rather unseemly, to be honest. But also

:03:37.:03:39.

they should do it away from the public gaze, if humanly possible,

:03:40.:03:44.

because this doesn't strike me as helpful. I don't know what our cards

:03:45.:03:49.

are and I'm not absolutely sure we've got too many, because we've

:03:50.:03:52.

come at this unexpectedly and we were not really prepared for it, and

:03:53.:03:57.

they are saying things like, Michel Barnier is saying, we will be less

:03:58.:04:03.

secure because of Brexit and a British voice is saying that is

:04:04.:04:09.

risible nonsense. I don't think it's a risible nonsense. We will have to

:04:10.:04:11.

give leave the European defence agency, Europol and then all the

:04:12.:04:16.

French have to do is say we're not going to look after Calais and

:04:17.:04:21.

Dunkirk, we are just going to open the gates and let them all come

:04:22.:04:24.

through to Britain and it's your problem of the migrants want to come

:04:25.:04:30.

to Britain. You mentioned Boris Johnson and Wesselingh. I don't know

:04:31.:04:33.

if you picked up on the interview on radio for them I think it was

:04:34.:04:37.

yesterday, where he did concede, did say that Britain would have to meet,

:04:38.:04:42.

we will have to meet our legal obligations when he was pressed,

:04:43.:04:46.

bike, I think it was Mishal Hussein, about the divorce Bill. What do you

:04:47.:04:52.

make of that? There seems to be an acceptance that we have to pay. Will

:04:53.:04:56.

that open up the negotiations and the EU will say, let's move ahead.

:04:57.:05:01.

Michel Barnier is saying there are three pillars, three separation

:05:02.:05:03.

agreements that need to be done, the first on the divorce Bill, which has

:05:04.:05:08.

ranged from 100 million euros, the FT reported a few months ago, which

:05:09.:05:11.

is clearly not acceptable for the UK Government, coming down to 30 or 40.

:05:12.:05:20.

There is also the issue of Northern Ireland, the 310 miles border that

:05:21.:05:23.

the EU says must be solved before you get into the nitty-gritty of

:05:24.:05:30.

association, and that is obviously very close to the heart of people in

:05:31.:05:33.

Northern Ireland. My family come from there. People are extremely

:05:34.:05:37.

worried about it. The last thing, one more thing, they want to agree

:05:38.:05:45.

on, the EU says they want to agree on the fate of the citizens here in

:05:46.:05:49.

the UK from the EU and I think there is 1 million Britons in the EU, what

:05:50.:05:54.

happens to their status as well? It is unseemly. This is really... This

:05:55.:06:04.

is mudslinging. They should come it all down. Let's turn to The

:06:05.:06:08.

Huffington Post because we continue with Brexit. The headline here is

:06:09.:06:15.

this idea of a messy divorce. Barnier has always said we are going

:06:16.:06:19.

too slowly and I think having an election that cost us 120 million or

:06:20.:06:23.

something in the middle of all of this when we should just have been

:06:24.:06:27.

cranking on, the decision has been taken, get on with it, don't keep

:06:28.:06:31.

looking, which is the way it looks to me is happening in Britain as if

:06:32.:06:34.

we are not really getting to the point. And, of course, we don't

:06:35.:06:41.

blame them for saying, right, we want you... At the moment you pay

:06:42.:06:46.

towards a lot of the European institutions and projects we are

:06:47.:06:49.

working on and you can't suddenly cut off, you agree to them so you

:06:50.:06:54.

should pay towards them and the British are saying we are being made

:06:55.:06:57.

to pay twice because we are trying to leave the Single Market and we

:06:58.:07:00.

are still being made to pay into it. At the moment there is a stalemate.

:07:01.:07:06.

But who blinks first? That is what the constructive ambiguity phrase

:07:07.:07:09.

that David Davis has come out with is true, you don't want to reveal

:07:10.:07:13.

all of your hand all at once. This is a hard negotiating phase now.

:07:14.:07:22.

DfT, this kind of continues again, this is a Brexit trio for us here on

:07:23.:07:29.

The Papers, because Theresa May is hoping to start building trade deals

:07:30.:07:34.

in the background, but it seems as if she is hoping for Japan to meet

:07:35.:07:39.

her halfway. She is just about to go there. Yes, she is, two days. The

:07:40.:07:44.

big problem is we were helping Europe to have an agreement with

:07:45.:07:52.

Japan, and now we are saying actually, we are going out and we'd

:07:53.:07:55.

like to have the same agreement as we work helping Europe to have with

:07:56.:07:59.

Japan command Japan are saying we are a bit busy at the moment. This

:08:00.:08:03.

could be a good leak that we're not going to get very far with Japan,

:08:04.:08:07.

because the Financial Times is now owned by a Japanese company, so this

:08:08.:08:13.

could well be true and it seems perfectly plausible to me. If you

:08:14.:08:19.

are doing a deal with Europe, wait, join the queue, Britain, and then we

:08:20.:08:22.

will talk to you. I think she could come back empty-handed the way David

:08:23.:08:28.

Cameron came back virtually every handed from Europe. Japanese

:08:29.:08:31.

officials say their priority is completing the deal with Brussels,

:08:32.:08:35.

as you say, and they also say we can negotiate until Britain is out of

:08:36.:08:40.

the EU. I think this is what Shinzo Abe, Theresa May's counterpart,

:08:41.:08:44.

wants to hear from Prime Minister Theresa May. Very quickly, let's

:08:45.:08:49.

stay with the front page of DfT. I don't know how many housewives will

:08:50.:08:54.

be able to afford nearly $40,000 for a plastic bag. What is happening in

:08:55.:09:00.

Kenya? I am a bit allergic to the word housewife. I can multitask! But

:09:01.:09:10.

basically Kenya has become the fourth country to ban plastic bags

:09:11.:09:18.

and they have banned them, you get banged up in prison, $38,000 fine

:09:19.:09:26.

for something. They are talking seriously. Rewinder, a country that

:09:27.:09:29.

has had so much strife, has already banned them. And then I look at the

:09:30.:09:33.

high street and I still see people staggering about with plastic bags.

:09:34.:09:37.

For goodness' sake, people, get ones that you can put inside your bag

:09:38.:09:42.

that is reasonable, not plastic! Let's move quickly on to the Times,

:09:43.:09:58.

Christian girl with a Muslim family. Christian girl with a Muslim family.

:09:59.:10:05.

It sounds like a horrendous case. Apparently the child was sobbing and

:10:06.:10:09.

begging to be returned to the foster family because she doesn't

:10:10.:10:12.

understand Arabic. The girl is also understood to have said that she was

:10:13.:10:15.

regularly expected to eat meals on the floor. This story has been done

:10:16.:10:22.

by Andrew Norfolk, an award-winning journalist who broke the story on

:10:23.:10:28.

what is happening, and what happened in the child sex ring in Rotherham.

:10:29.:10:31.

We don't have an insight into what was said. There is a statement from

:10:32.:10:36.

Tower Hamlets. My only insight is what on earth is a council doing not

:10:37.:10:42.

spotting this one coming? Warning klaxons should have been sounding.

:10:43.:10:48.

We contacted Tower Hamlets council and they go back to us, and just to

:10:49.:10:52.

read out the statement: we are unable to comment on individual

:10:53.:10:56.

cases all those subject to court proceedings. The council's fostering

:10:57.:11:00.

service provides a loving and stable home for hundreds of children each

:11:01.:11:03.

year and in every case we give absolute consideration to our

:11:04.:11:08.

children's background and to their cultural identity. All of our foster

:11:09.:11:12.

carers receive training and support from the council to ensure they are

:11:13.:11:15.

fully qualified to meet the needs of the children in their care. That's

:11:16.:11:24.

the statement but something has gone wrong here. I'm going to guess this

:11:25.:11:27.

is happening all over the country and let us know if it does. This is

:11:28.:11:30.

one of the questions that the Times asks, if it is a one-off or if it

:11:31.:11:33.

goes further. I view pro Frank on the front of The Express, are you a

:11:34.:11:39.

fan of IB preference? No, there is a wonderful conference in Barcelona at

:11:40.:11:42.

the moment with the top people in the world talking about their

:11:43.:11:45.

research, but for the public this is so baffling. Only about two years

:11:46.:11:49.

ago we were told not to take these other painkillers because they have

:11:50.:11:54.

too many side-effects, just paracetamol, and now they say

:11:55.:11:57.

paracetamol has side-effects. We have got to be told as the public

:11:58.:12:03.

and what are the right... Wipe clean the board, on a piece of paper in

:12:04.:12:07.

every home, what are the best painkillers to use if you have got

:12:08.:12:11.

common conditions, and which ones you should not touch with a barge

:12:12.:12:17.

pole. John, surely most tablets taken to excess are bad for you? You

:12:18.:12:23.

don't even have to take them to excess, by the way. I'm totally

:12:24.:12:28.

confused I don't know which ones to take. That is my point. You do not

:12:29.:12:32.

know where to stand with these pills, you read that one is good to

:12:33.:12:36.

take one week and then that it is bad for you the next. There is

:12:37.:12:41.

something called Cochrane collaboration, the scientists review

:12:42.:12:43.

everything in the world, they should tell us what is safe to take. The

:12:44.:12:49.

Times, maybe this is the responsible we don't need painkillers, we don't

:12:50.:12:53.

need drugs, we just need to start getting fit and there is hope. And

:12:54.:13:00.

EU are never too old to get fit. Everyone should be out there doing a

:13:01.:13:04.

bit of something or other, and most people in Britain don't do much.

:13:05.:13:08.

What do you both do? I run and I walk. I walk, I have a fitness

:13:09.:13:15.

tracker that tracks my walking and I play football to a very bad standard

:13:16.:13:19.

occasionally. It says getting fit in your 40s and 50s could half your

:13:20.:13:23.

long-term risks of stroke, so some body at the younger end of that,

:13:24.:13:26.

that gives me hope that I can get off the sofa and perhaps even the

:13:27.:13:32.

more encouragement to get more fit. It says 100,000 people a year in

:13:33.:13:35.

Britain suffer strokes either through disruption of blood supply

:13:36.:13:40.

to the brain or bleeding within it. We can laugh and joke about our lazy

:13:41.:13:44.

lifestyle but it's important and you can do it now. What was that

:13:45.:13:52.

well-known... The Baker on the high Street. For breakfast I went to a

:13:53.:13:56.

baker that is popular in the North of England and is growing in

:13:57.:13:59.

southern England and had a coffee and sausage roll this morning. How

:14:00.:14:04.

many steps have you taken? 8000 steps running up-and-down the stairs

:14:05.:14:08.

here between different shows. Do you know how many flaws we have got?

:14:09.:14:14.

Just 2000 to go. It's not like the old step counters that sitting at

:14:15.:14:17.

your desk and you moved and it was half a mile. That is cheating. We

:14:18.:14:21.

will find out how many steps you have done. I will give you an

:14:22.:14:27.

update. For now that is it for The Papers, don't forget you can see the

:14:28.:14:31.

front pages of The Papers online, have a look at the BBC News website,

:14:32.:14:38.

it is all there for you seven days a week, bbc.co.uk/ papers. If you

:14:39.:14:41.

missed the programme any evening you can watch it later on BBC iPlayer,

:14:42.:14:49.

the award-winning iPlayer. Thank you to my guests. Next on the BBC News

:14:50.:14:53.

channel its meet the author. Stay tuned.

:14:54.:15:02.
