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

:00:22.:00:24.

us tomorrow. With me are John Crowley,

:00:25.:00:25.

managing editor of Newsweek Media Group, and the broadcaster,

:00:26.:00:28.

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

:00:29.:00:36.

Tomorrow's front pages. We start with this.

:00:37.:00:37.

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

:00:38.:00:40.

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

:00:41.:00:43.

Michel Barnier being called "unhelpful."

:00:44.:00:44.

Whereas the Times picks up on the frustration

:00:45.:00:46.

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

:00:47.:00:50.

for disappointment this week because, the paper claims,

:00:51.:00:57.

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

:00:58.:01:01.

The Metro reports that the driver accused of killing eight people

:01:02.:01:04.

in a motorway crash on the M1 was almost twice over

:01:05.:01:08.

The lead in the Express is that arthritis sufferers,

:01:09.:01:18.

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

:01:19.:01:21.

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

:01:22.:01:30.

the risk of breast cancer according to new research.

:01:31.:01:33.

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

:01:34.:01:36.

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

:01:37.:01:39.

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

:01:40.:01:42.

number of calls to the police over mental health.

:01:43.:01:45.

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

:01:46.:01:48.

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

:01:49.:02:07.

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

:02:08.:02:12.

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

:02:13.:02:22.

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

:02:23.:02:25.

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

:02:26.:02:30.

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

:02:31.:02:35.

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

:02:36.:02:42.

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

:02:43.:02:47.

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

:02:48.:02:50.

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

:02:51.:02:57.

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

:02:58.:03:00.

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

:03:01.:03:11.

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

:03:12.:03:15.

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

:03:16.:03:20.

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

:03:21.:03:23.

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

:03:24.:03:27.

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

:03:28.:03:34.

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

:03:35.:03:39.

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

:03:40.:03:43.

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

:03:44.:03:50.

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

:03:51.:04:02.

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

:04:03.:04:05.

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

:04:06.:04:09.

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

:04:10.:04:16.

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

:04:17.:04:22.

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

:04:23.:04:26.

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

:04:27.:04:33.

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

:04:34.:04:39.

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

:04:40.:04:44.

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

:04:45.:04:51.

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

:04:52.:04:57.

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

:04:58.:05:03.

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

:05:04.:05:10.

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

:05:11.:05:21.

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

:05:22.:05:26.

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

:05:27.:05:34.

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

:05:35.:05:38.

Britain is not happy with his comments. The slanging match

:05:39.:05:46.

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

:05:47.:05:53.

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

:05:54.:05:59.

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

:06:00.:06:07.

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

:06:08.:06:12.

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

:06:13.:06:20.

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

:06:21.:06:27.

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

:06:28.:06:31.

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

:06:32.:06:41.

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

:06:42.:06:47.

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

:06:48.:06:53.

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

:06:54.:06:57.

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

:06:58.:07:04.

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

:07:05.:07:10.

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

:07:11.:07:15.

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

:07:16.:07:23.

his ear is the disaster that Hurricane Katrina was for George

:07:24.:07:31.

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

:07:32.:07:34.

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

:07:35.:07:45.

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

:07:46.:07:48.

because he was at a press conference, the Finnish Prime

:07:49.:07:54.

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

:07:55.:07:58.

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

:07:59.:08:04.

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

:08:05.:08:09.

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

:08:10.:08:11.

Houston for global rough percussions. Yes. They are finding

:08:12.:08:19.

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

:08:20.:08:25.

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

:08:26.:08:35.

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

:08:36.:08:41.

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

:08:42.:08:46.

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

:08:47.:08:51.

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

:08:52.:08:54.

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

:08:55.:08:59.

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

:09:00.:09:07.

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

:09:08.:09:16.

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

:09:17.:09:24.

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

:09:25.:09:29.

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

:09:30.:09:34.

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

:09:35.:09:42.

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

:09:43.:09:46.

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

:09:47.:09:49.

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

:09:50.:09:55.

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

:09:56.:10:00.

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

:10:01.:10:08.

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

:10:09.:10:14.

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

:10:15.:10:22.

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

:10:23.:10:30.

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

:10:31.:10:36.

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

:10:37.:10:39.

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

:10:40.:10:46.

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

:10:47.:10:50.

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

:10:51.:10:54.

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

:10:55.:11:02.

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

:11:03.:11:09.

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

:11:10.:11:22.

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

:11:23.:11:26.

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

:11:27.:11:35.

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

:11:36.:11:45.

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

:11:46.:11:53.

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

:11:54.:11:58.

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

:11:59.:12:02.

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

:12:03.:12:12.

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

:12:13.:12:22.

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

:12:23.:12:26.

council doing having something like this happen that so obviously is

:12:27.:12:31.

going to have terrible repercussions? If the press get hold

:12:32.:12:38.

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

:12:39.:12:43.

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

:12:44.:12:48.

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

:12:49.:12:53.

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

:12:54.:13:02.

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

:13:03.:13:07.

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

:13:08.:13:13.

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

:13:14.:13:19.

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

:13:20.:13:25.

fostering service provides a loving and stable home for hundreds of

:13:26.:13:29.

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

:13:30.:13:32.

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

:13:33.:13:37.

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

:13:38.:13:52.

qualification ready parents stop. The Children's Commissioner is

:13:53.:13:57.

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

:13:58.:14:05.

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

:14:06.:14:09.

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

:14:10.:14:15.

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

:14:16.:14:22.

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

:14:23.:14:36.

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

:14:37.:14:41.

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

:14:42.:14:44.

to be? 1 million women were looked at. They

:14:45.:15:00.

are saying there is a connection between high cholesterol and

:15:01.:15:04.

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

:15:05.:15:10.

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

:15:11.:15:15.

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

:15:16.:15:23.

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

:15:24.:15:27.

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

:15:28.:15:34.

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

:15:35.:15:39.

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

:15:40.:15:43.

on BBC News. Don't forget you can see the front

:15:44.:15:45.

pages of the papers online seven days a week at

:15:46.:15:48.

:15:49.:15:53.
