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


us tomorrow. With me are John Crowley,


managing editor of Newsweek Media Group, and the broadcaster,


Lynn Faulds Wood. Thank you very much for coming in.


Tomorrow's front pages. We start with this.


The Telegraph says that the Brexit talks between the UK and the EU have


descended into a slanging match with the EU's Chief Negotiator,


Michel Barnier being called "unhelpful."


Whereas the Times picks up on the frustration


on the other side in its headline: "'It's time to get serious',


for disappointment this week because, the paper claims,


the Japanese government won't rush into free-trade talks with the UK.


The Metro reports that the driver accused of killing eight people


in a motorway crash on the M1 was almost twice over


The lead in the Express is that arthritis sufferers,


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


Meanwhile, the Mirror on its front page says that statins could halve


the risk of breast cancer according to new research.


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


who it says, was forced to live with Muslim foster carers.


And finally, the Guardian lead is that there have been a record


number of calls to the police over mental health.


But it also has a photo of the 51st Notting Hill Carnival adorning


We will start with the Times. Britain has to get serious, says


Brussels. They would say that, wouldn't they? It is frustrating


what is happening at the moment. It seems to be so sluggish. There was


the slanging match at the beginning which is still ongoing when Boris


Johnson said they could whistle for money. The government in Europe want


to talk about how much money Britain owes to Europe. The other thing...


They are setting the agenda at the moment. They want to talk about the


Anglo-Irish border and the rights of EU immigrants who want to remain in


Britain. Those are not bad things to want to talk about. That is what


they are saying they want. But Britain wants to talk about other


things. They think they are serious. They want to show their hand. There


have been different treatments on the same story. We are getting the


same quotes. The Times is the most nuanced, talking about Brussels. But


when you read into it, this is the negotiating stage, hard bowling,


they said British sources say the lack of a paper was entirely


deliberate and the government was not ready to commit to a financial


settlement without the EU discussing a transition package. To give some


credit to David Davis, this is his negotiating line. He will not give.


He is talking about the ambiguity which we will talk about from The


Telegraph in a bit. Constructive ambiguity. What does that mean. But,


as they said, whether you agree with this or not, this is high


negotiation. If they say we will pay you hundreds of millions of pounds


in a divorce bill, don't worry about Ireland, that will be OK, people


will still be able to move back and forward, clearly that is not what


David Davis wants to say. They want to say it is unseemly, certainly, at


the moment, with them stabbing each other in the front, this is not how


politics should work, but they are speaking to their electorates. Look


at that guy. He is stupid. Do you think they are impressed by this? It


is like schoolboys being rude to each other. Michel Barnier has said


I am ready to intensify negotiations in coming weeks in order to advance.


A warning, a threat? He is frustrated according to the Times. I


understand. He is calm. Publicly, all we are seeing is not very much.


They need to crack on with it in private. Instead of insulting each


other, perhaps telling each other to shut up, they just need to agree on


something that looks positive to everyone's electorates. By 27


against wind, they will win, it looks like. -- but 27 against one.


He has been described as unhelpful on the front of The Daily Telegraph.


Britain is not happy with his comments. The slanging match


continues. I think we have covered the front page of The Daily


Telegraph. The i. It is getting worse. We are used to hurricanes


blasting through, but it is getting worse for Texas and Houston in


particular. I am not surprised. My taxi driver on the way he told me


his family lived in Houston and he was scared. They cannot get in and


out of their building. It is terrible. Pets are being washed


away. This is terrible. And it is not finished. 30 inches of rainfall


have fallen on taxes and spreading to Louisiana as well. And another 20


million... 20 inches. This week is Claire they are at breaking point.


It looks like 30,000 will have to abandon their homes. And Donald


Trump is visiting the region. I don't think he will visit Houston.


Whether that is deliberate... We can speculate. He cannot get in and out.


Do runner motorways. That is his argument. -- there are no. He says


he doesn't want to disrupt the relief effort. But this is the first


epic natural disaster event that has happened on his watch. The klaxon in


his ear is the disaster that Hurricane Katrina was for George


Bush. Can he rise above it? He was tweeting about a myriad of other


events on the weekend about this. Can he rise above it... Can he stop


tweeting! Can he give hope? In his statement at the podium over this,


because he was at a press conference, the Finnish Prime


Minister was visiting, he kept to the script. Everyone was watching


closely. To round soft, very quickly, people have not picked up


in the UK the fact you have the shale gas, oil refineries, and fuel


prices have gone up. People are watching what has happened in


Houston for global rough percussions. Yes. They are finding


the oil. It will hit the cost. The price will go up. -- are refining.


That will concentrate minds more. The Guardian. The first story.


Record calls to police about mental health. This is sad. The police say


every five minutes they get a call about mental health. It is a huge


number. Why call the police? They say it there is a failure of the NHS


mental health services and there have been cutbacks to deal with the


problems. People are turning to them. There are many people with


very serious mental health issues, hearing voices, things we read about


in the papers, not rare, at someone being stabbed. -- but. People don't


know where to turn. The NHS is not answering so they are turning to the


police. We have to sort this out now. There is a huge rise in people


calling because someone in their family, friends, they have mental


health issues, it is frightening, frankly. This quote coming from


Inspector Michael Brown. He says most people in contact with the


police about mental health issues do not need the police, they need a


mental health professional. They don't know where to go, basically.


That is the problem. Just carry on with the Guardian. It is all about


pay. Do you think bosses will reveal their pay packet? We don't do...


Publicly, to explain, they would be obliged to publish the Chief


Executive and average British worker pay gap today. Theresa May, I don't


know if... It is not going to happen. She has made up her mind


already. This is weasel words. I have seen it announced before. I


don't think this is going to work. They are saying the Prime Minister


has pledged to put workers on company boards. They say it has been


watered down. But would you not love to see... Imagine just for a second


it did happen. It would be fascinating to see these publicly


listed companies, the difference in pay ratios. People would not want to


go to work the next day. The weasel words is to do it on a comply or


explained basis. That means you can decide to tell these workers or... I


could add something. Or you could not explain it. It is too easy to


dodge. It is written in to get out. The Mail. Christian, a five-year-old


Grecian girl, put into foster care with two was family. -- Christian.


It is in Tower Hamlets. I want to know if this is the only case. I


worked for The Mail a long time ago. I am disappointed to see this as the


front-page story. Miniseries things are happening in the world. This is


serious, but it is not for the first page. -- There are many serious. You


can argue that... It is an important story that... Is this the only time


this has happened? There is no context. What on Earth is the


council doing having something like this happen that so obviously is


going to have terrible repercussions? If the press get hold


of it, as they just did... Alarm bells should be ringing. The child


was crying saying she does not understand Arabic. She also said she


was made to it on the floor. This story will not go away because MPs


demanded a review. That is the splash. We have not looked inside, I


am reading what's on the front. Is that a great witness for the courts


to be admitted to her? Is there a bit of racism creeping in? I will


jump in. We approached Tower Hamlets council for a response. They said


they are unable to comment on individual cases. The council's


fostering service provides a loving and stable home for hundreds of


children every year. In every case we give absolute consideration to


the background of the children and cultural identity. All foster carers


get training and support from the council to get fully trained and


qualification ready parents stop. The Children's Commissioner is


asking questions now. It is not going away. If this is the one this


ever happened and there is a reason why it happened, OK. If it turns out


every council in the country has the same problem, then it is a huge


story. But at the moment, I am hoping it is only one. It is not


going to go away. Finishing off. Statins. A miracle drug. I don't


know what they are. Are of a cheap? -- are they cheap? There is a huge


question over is cholesterol really as big a problem as it is made out


to be? 1 million women were looked at. They


are saying there is a connection between high cholesterol and


survival of breast cancer and they are thinking that the use of


statins... Are all sorts of reasons. I'm going to jump in. They also said


you are better off doing half an hour 's risk of walking. Thank you


very much to both of you. Just to update you, North Korea has launched


a missile test that has gone over Japan's northernmost island of


Hokkaido. The UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has said he is


outraged by North Korea's latest provocation. Plenty more coming up
