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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are Lynn Davidson, Whitehall Correspondent

:00:19.:00:21.

at the Sun and Josie Cox, Business Editor the Independent.

:00:22.:00:23.

Tomorrow's front pages - starting with...

:00:24.:00:32.

Hurricane Harvey will pump up petrol prices in the UK to a four year

:00:33.:00:39.

high. The Times carries an interview with

:00:40.:00:42.

the former Labour frontbencher Sarah Champion who says that party is

:00:43.:00:48.

turning a blind eye to sex crimes. The Telegraph claims the National

:00:49.:00:52.

Trust is in conflict with countryside campaigners, it is

:00:53.:00:55.

listing details of illegal hunts taking place on land it owns on its

:00:56.:00:58.

website. The Guardian has the story of a

:00:59.:01:01.

grammar school accused of pushing sixth form student out halfway

:01:02.:01:05.

through the term. The express leads on what they call

:01:06.:01:09.

a breakthrough in the treatment of high blood pressure.

:01:10.:01:12.

The Daily Mail saying local authorities are ordering binmen to

:01:13.:01:16.

check people's bins for recycling offences.

:01:17.:01:20.

The Mirror carries Wayne Rooney's drink-driving charges on the front

:01:21.:01:22.

page. The FT is leading on investors in

:01:23.:01:27.

northern rock reigniting the campaign for compensation after the

:01:28.:01:32.

nationalisation of the bank. We will dip into a few of those over the

:01:33.:01:38.

next ten minutes. Let's talk about the march of the bin snoopers. This

:01:39.:01:44.

is the latest episode of the Big Brother binmen who have been on

:01:45.:01:48.

overdrive, apparently. They have recorded almost 7 million incidents

:01:49.:01:52.

of people overfilling their wheelie bins. These are so-called recycling

:01:53.:01:59.

offences which could mean overfilling them, keeping their lids

:02:00.:02:02.

open, God forbid, contaminating their recycling. Not washing out

:02:03.:02:07.

items before putting them in the recycling. Householders face fines

:02:08.:02:14.

of about ?60, ?80, depending on where they live, as a result. This

:02:15.:02:19.

is the latest. We have seen in previous years where some bin

:02:20.:02:22.

lorries have been fitted with spyware. Some councils had lorries

:02:23.:02:28.

fitted with touch screens so binmen could swipe whether people had put

:02:29.:02:35.

their bins out late, for example. I'm not sure people up and down

:02:36.:02:39.

England and Wales will be delighted to hear there are more reports being

:02:40.:02:43.

filed on them and potentially more fines. Does this trouble you? I like

:02:44.:02:50.

to think I am a conscious recycler. I think it feeds into this general

:02:51.:02:54.

narrative about waste in this country. We have seen the crackdown

:02:55.:02:59.

on plastic bags at supermarkets. Plastic bottles, thinks like that.

:03:00.:03:02.

People are trying to reduce packaging. It's a huge issue. It's

:03:03.:03:08.

something we don't pay enough attention to just yet. The other

:03:09.:03:13.

side is that people don't like feeling like they are being snooped

:03:14.:03:18.

on. That's clearly in element. To be fair, councils are under pressure.

:03:19.:03:22.

There are EU targets on the cycling on things like metal, glass, papers,

:03:23.:03:27.

things like that. It's so different across the country. Where I live,

:03:28.:03:34.

everything goes in one thing altogether. Other places is it -- it

:03:35.:03:41.

isn't like that. It is difficult within varies from time to time. We

:03:42.:03:44.

have a picture here of Sarah Champion. She's been talking for the

:03:45.:03:49.

first time since she was sacked from the front bench, is that right? Yes,

:03:50.:03:55.

she was sacked after making those remarks. She said Britain has a

:03:56.:04:00.

problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls.

:04:01.:04:06.

Which caused quite a storm. It led to her resignation. Well, her

:04:07.:04:12.

dismissal, anyway. In this interview, to my mind she is coming

:04:13.:04:19.

out and reasserting herself. Not backing down on what she has been

:04:20.:04:24.

saying, but creating context. Basically saying that there are

:04:25.:04:30.

certain things about the way we perceive race in this country. And

:04:31.:04:34.

we have the call them out. That's OK to do. We don't have to be overly

:04:35.:04:41.

sensitive about political correctness if that isn't the way it

:04:42.:04:47.

is. She is saying, call a spade a spade and let's recognise this is a

:04:48.:04:53.

problem. This isn't a direct quote, but the implication is, if there is

:04:54.:04:57.

a judgment that has been made of her it has come from people who are

:04:58.:05:00.

London based and have one particular view of the world. She represents

:05:01.:05:05.

Rotherham. She says people don't see things the same way necessarily. I

:05:06.:05:09.

entirely agree with that. We've heard lots about the North London

:05:10.:05:16.

group, including Jeremy Corbyn, etc. That is what she is pointing out.

:05:17.:05:21.

She is a rather remember P. She knows her constituency very well.

:05:22.:05:26.

The latest conviction which came a few weeks ago in Newcastle. -- she

:05:27.:05:32.

is a Rotherham MP. She has spoken about this in the past. She isn't

:05:33.:05:36.

shrinking from the Commons she has made. She has talked about the

:05:37.:05:42.

floppy left. She did on the today programme. That was on the same day

:05:43.:05:46.

of making the column which was published in the sun newspaper.

:05:47.:05:52.

London is very multicultural. It's not the same up north. She has been

:05:53.:05:57.

hit by both sides, which I think she accurately predicted. That was when

:05:58.:06:01.

she made the comments in the first place. But it is good to see she is

:06:02.:06:08.

sticking to her guns, I think. Let's talk about Kenya. The Financial

:06:09.:06:13.

Times... Well, we will deal with their lead in a moment. But with

:06:14.:06:17.

reference to what the Supreme Court has said about the presidential

:06:18.:06:22.

election result. It is quite unprecedented, as they say, in

:06:23.:06:26.

Africa, isn't it? Yes, quite, and we are yet to hear about the basis of

:06:27.:06:35.

the decision. It has been declared null and void, the election, they

:06:36.:06:39.

will have to hold another one. I suppose the main fear really is what

:06:40.:06:44.

happens next. We haven't heard of any protests thus far. But

:06:45.:06:49.

obviously, around about 20 people died last month. Back ten years ago,

:06:50.:06:56.

many people died in bloodshed there. We will wait to see what happens

:06:57.:07:01.

next. There seems to be a huge disparity between the electronic

:07:02.:07:06.

votes collected and account. You are now looking to a body, namely the

:07:07.:07:11.

Electoral Commission, who have now been discredited by what the Supreme

:07:12.:07:15.

Court says to oversee another vote, unless they can change the make-up

:07:16.:07:20.

of it. It sets a precedent. There are two Mapoe ways this could

:07:21.:07:24.

unfold. The violence is a concern. The country has a history of that.

:07:25.:07:30.

In 2008 it was an incredibly bloody election. -- two ways this could

:07:31.:07:36.

unfold. Equally, maybe this process also shows a sense of democracy. But

:07:37.:07:41.

it is a checks and balances system, which was set up for a reason, which

:07:42.:07:46.

is working now. That is perhaps the ideal outcome of this. It remains to

:07:47.:07:50.

be seen whether actually, and whether both candidates will be able

:07:51.:07:54.

to respect whatever decision is made. You need to put on your

:07:55.:07:58.

business hat now and talk about Northern Rock. Yes, Gosh. Ten Years

:07:59.:08:06.

Ago. That Might Feel Like A Long Time Ago, But Clearly The Wounds Are

:08:07.:08:14.

Still Very Fresh. An Awful Lot Of People Were Affected By The Collapse

:08:15.:08:23.

Of The Northern Rock bailout. The chairman of the Association of small

:08:24.:08:27.

shareholders in Northern Rock is saying that these shareholders are

:08:28.:08:32.

demanding something back. They lost out during the bailout. They are

:08:33.:08:37.

saying that the government made millions, billions of pounds of

:08:38.:08:40.

profit from that bailout and they are now entitled to that. It's an

:08:41.:08:45.

interesting story. That anniversary is coming up. But equally a lot of

:08:46.:08:48.

the people affected by Northern Rock in this way are widows and

:08:49.:08:54.

pensioners now. Those are the most vulnerable. Not only that, we are

:08:55.:08:58.

living in an incredibly difficult time for consumer confidence.

:08:59.:09:03.

Inflation is at a high. The pound is falling. We don't know where we are

:09:04.:09:07.

going in terms of the EU and Brexit. This just sounds like a household

:09:08.:09:12.

savings story. The pound in our pockets feels more fragile than

:09:13.:09:17.

ever. If you were someone who was struck by Northern Rock ten years

:09:18.:09:21.

ago, then that is something you are still going to be reeling from. Yes.

:09:22.:09:27.

Talking about the pound in our pockets, petrol prices might be

:09:28.:09:31.

going up. Not an encouraging story for motorists. Not for long, though,

:09:32.:09:41.

maybe. Yes, we think this is a short-term pain, hopefully. Unleaded

:09:42.:09:47.

set to increase by 5p per litre. It would be more expensive than diesel

:09:48.:09:52.

to the first time in about a year. Prices, they say a four-year high, I

:09:53.:09:57.

think it is meant to be ?1.21 a litre. That is what the RAC has

:09:58.:10:04.

said. What has happened in America is that these refineries in Texas

:10:05.:10:09.

have been shut down as a result of hurricane Harvey. That means they

:10:10.:10:12.

have not been able to pump out the fuel they need over there. America

:10:13.:10:19.

has had to buy fuel from elsewhere, meaning there is less for everyone

:10:20.:10:22.

else to buy, and prices go up as a result. Fracking in the US is a big

:10:23.:10:30.

thing. There is still a huge reliance on petrol over there and

:10:31.:10:34.

this is an example of why. I think it will be short-term. It makes for

:10:35.:10:39.

a nice headline. It is scary when it feeds directly through to the

:10:40.:10:44.

consumer. Oil prices, we are still in this historic oil glut. We have

:10:45.:10:49.

seen prices fall from above $100 per barrel back in 2014 to about half

:10:50.:10:58.

that now. There is a huge glut. Opec has for years been trying to reach

:10:59.:11:03.

an agreement on a sustainable cap on oil production, which would be able

:11:04.:11:09.

to moderate prices somewhat. This might look like we are going to be

:11:10.:11:15.

worse off because petrol prices will skyrocket or whatever. But in a

:11:16.:11:19.

couple of weeks' time, once the full impact of hurricane Harvey dies

:11:20.:11:24.

down, there will be some recovery there and these refineries should be

:11:25.:11:27.

able to reopen, as well. We are trying to pack in a lot in our last

:11:28.:11:33.

five minutes. The Daily Telegraph, front page, we have two versions.

:11:34.:11:39.

National Trust is aiding Hunt saboteurs will be the lead in

:11:40.:11:42.

England, at least. Yes we have the Scottish and English ones. Hunting

:11:43.:11:51.

came back on the news agenda just ahead of the general election

:11:52.:11:57.

earlier in the year. After the May said she would allow a free vote on

:11:58.:12:02.

it in Parliament. Not much has been said since. Well, it wasn't the

:12:03.:12:08.

Queen 's speech. -- after Theresa May said she would allow. David

:12:09.:12:12.

Cameron did not say it because he knew he would not have the support.

:12:13.:12:17.

Theresa May said it. It is an unpopular thing. Something like

:12:18.:12:20.

800,000 people signed a petition against bringing it back. What we

:12:21.:12:28.

are seeing now, what we have going on his trail hunting, and now the

:12:29.:12:36.

countryside Alliance and those who like hunting are very upset because

:12:37.:12:39.

they feel the National Trust are not on their side. There is going to be

:12:40.:12:45.

an annual general meeting of the National Trust where they will vote

:12:46.:12:53.

on this, on an outright ban on National Trust land. And a word

:12:54.:12:58.

about the Scottish front page. This is to do with fishermen. They are

:12:59.:13:05.

threatening the SMP with legal action. Yes, they are being forced

:13:06.:13:12.

to land a certain amount of their macro captured in Scottish ports. --

:13:13.:13:18.

they are threatening the SNP with legal action because they are being

:13:19.:13:21.

forced to land a certain amount of their catch in Scottish ports. This

:13:22.:13:27.

comes against a backdrop of an already fierce battle between

:13:28.:13:32.

fishermen and the SNP. Nicola Sturgeon's opposition to Brexit

:13:33.:13:34.

isn't striking a favourable tone with them because they think Brexit

:13:35.:13:41.

could be something which would help the industry. An interesting

:13:42.:13:45.

escalation. Two minutes to race through three lighter stories. A

:13:46.:13:51.

pensioner wins a lawn prize after 60,000 hours of mowing. This is a

:13:52.:13:57.

fabulous story. It's incredible. Stuart Grindle, here, my favourite

:13:58.:14:05.

quote is from his wife, 74, who has to ring a bell for his attention

:14:06.:14:09.

when she wants to speak to him. She said in his life there is golf,

:14:10.:14:16.

gardening, and grass. Yes, apparently he won a lawn mower but

:14:17.:14:22.

will continue to use the old one. If you have a sneaky long lunch at your

:14:23.:14:28.

desk will find you out in the FT. A bit of Big Brother again. I hope

:14:29.:14:36.

they don't get any eyes in media. Or Westminster. Banks are reflected. I

:14:37.:14:42.

am sure they will come up with some sneaky way around it. It is all to

:14:43.:14:48.

do with networking. And the cartoon in the Telegraph. This one's

:14:49.:14:54.

powerful enough to suck the UK out of the customs union with a sign on

:14:55.:14:57.

the back saying EU banned vacuum cleaners. Vacuum cleaners are not

:14:58.:15:04.

allowed to the over 900 watts apparently. The Braves met the

:15:05.:15:11.

challenge. Thanks very much. -- you met the challenge, well done.

:15:12.:15:13.

Don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online

:15:14.:15:16.

It's all there for you - seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers -

:15:17.:15:20.

and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it

:15:21.:15:24.
