Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers will be

0:00:160:00:19

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:190:00:22

With me are the journalist

and broadcaster Penny Smith

0:00:220:00:30

and the commentator

and broadcaster Charlie Wolf.

0:00:300:00:40

Tomorrow's front pages,

starting with...

0:00:400:00:45

The Mail on Sunday, which leads

with fresh allegations of sexism

0:00:450:00:49

at Westminster.

0:00:490:00:50

The Sunday Times claims

some prisoners sentenced

0:00:500:00:52

to less than a year could be allowed

to go home in order to vote,

0:00:520:00:56

under new government plans.

0:00:560:00:58

The Sunday Telegraph says that

chaotic organisation of the health

0:00:580:01:01

service is putting patients' lives

0:01:010:01:04

at risk, according to

the NHS medical director.

0:01:040:01:06

On the front page

of The Observer, claims that senior

0:01:060:01:10

Tory donors have urged Theresa May

to walk away from Brexit

0:01:100:01:12

talks rather than accept

0:01:130:01:15

an "unsatisfactory

and unfavourable" deal.

0:01:150:01:17

And the Express leads

with the crisis in Catalonia,

0:01:170:01:19

as Madrid seizes power over

0:01:190:01:21

the regional Parliament.

0:01:210:01:28

Let's start with the Sunday

Telegraph. The focus very much on

0:01:280:01:36

the Catalan facing arrest as he

calls for civil disobedience. It is

0:01:360:01:44

only a matter of time before we see

what we fear.

0:01:440:01:49

only a matter of time before we see

what we fear.

We have not heard much

0:01:490:01:53

from the EU on this. There is an

expression in the states, you cannot

0:01:530:01:59

fight City Hall. That's what may

happen. As far as the Catalan

0:01:590:02:06

leader, pretender to the throne,

thinks he will show up on Monday and

0:02:060:02:12

find someone else who has been

appointed by the federal government

0:02:120:02:16

because they are now under direct

rule. He may not be able to get into

0:02:160:02:22

the building. He is also facing

arrest and up to 30 years in jail.

0:02:220:02:30

When those arrests start taking

place, some police officers decide

0:02:300:02:34

they will not take orders from the

nationalist Catalan Chief police

0:02:340:02:39

officer that has replaced the one

that has been fired.

And also, when

0:02:390:02:44

we saw what went on when they did

the illegal vote, and if we had a

0:02:440:02:51

repeater that any stage, I was

talking to somebody who lives out in

0:02:510:02:57

Barcelona and has been watching this

as a journalist. Not everybody is in

0:02:570:03:05

favour. This is not one of those

done deals. It is not one of

0:03:050:03:09

Catalonia saying we want to be

independent. Quite a sizeable

0:03:090:03:13

proportion...

42% if the

referendum...

It was not represented

0:03:130:03:24

because lots of people boycotted it

as well. The point is lots of people

0:03:240:03:28

want to stay with Spain. When you

stand back from this. You think, why

0:03:280:03:37

were they not speaking? Surely

diplomacy could have avoided all of

0:03:370:03:41

this.

There are so many stories, we

do not know what the truth is.

I

0:03:410:03:50

asked one of many experts on Spanish

listing that we have been

0:03:500:03:54

interviewing, why did they stay so

silent? They are the people who want

0:03:540:03:59

to go through a more democratic

process.

It is very difficult to

0:03:590:04:09

turn up for the status quo. Much

more exciting to go on and say, we

0:04:090:04:14

want change rather than saying we

want things to stay the same.

It

0:04:140:04:19

could reveal all.

You think back to

the civil rights period in the

0:04:190:04:25

states. It was in Alabama. They

tried to prevent these black kids

0:04:250:04:33

from going to the University. You do

not fight City Hall.

You are right

0:04:330:04:39

there. On the 21st of December, some

people might not feel it is worth

0:04:390:04:45

voting. We do not know how

transparent this is. Let's move on

0:04:450:04:51

to the Sunday express which brings a

bit closer to home. These are how

0:04:510:04:57

the mounting tensions in Spain are

keeping British tourists away. Still

0:04:570:05:01

the top destination but still a

place where people live as well.

22%

0:05:010:05:10

down on bookings as well. Even

though you say to people, how does

0:05:100:05:14

it feel out the? They say, it is not

feel like anything will kick-off.

0:05:140:05:20

But you never know. If you've got a

choice between going there or

0:05:200:05:24

somewhere else, you thing, it is not

that far away, I can do some other

0:05:240:05:29

time. I will wait until this is

passed.

I would love to go back to

0:05:290:05:35

Valencia. We were in Barcelona many

years, but with children, do you

0:05:350:05:42

want to show up where that might

kick-off?

It could be devastate

0:05:420:05:49

economic live. A lot of people stop

travelling to Egypt and Tunisia.

It

0:05:490:05:54

is a shame. I felt for them and they

had the bombing recently. I remember

0:05:540:06:03

on our honeymoon at midnight, people

were dancing in the square and it

0:06:030:06:07

was a beautiful place.

You have got

the mountains to one side. You have

0:06:070:06:15

got the area with the president was

drinking his glass of wine.

You too

0:06:150:06:21

should work for the Spanish tourist

board! The Sunday Times, some

0:06:210:06:27

prisoners might get the right to

vote.

This has been an ongoing issue

0:06:270:06:34

because the European Court of Human

Rights said prisoners should have

0:06:340:06:37

the right to vote. There seems to be

a suggestion that, if you are under

0:06:370:06:45

a year and you are due to go out,

you should be allowed to vote. This

0:06:450:06:52

story goes on to cover policing and

various other things, saying they

0:06:520:06:56

need more money to police our

streets and also they are having to

0:06:560:07:02

juggle things around, and the having

to deal with serious crimes locally.

0:07:020:07:08

In other words, drugs and terrorism,

the having to go into local areas

0:07:080:07:15

and try to sort out crime because

they are being starved of funds. The

0:07:150:07:19

whole thing is... The Justice

Secretary. I know you feel strongly

0:07:190:07:26

about the rights of prisoners.

To

tell

0:07:260:07:30

about the rights of prisoners.

To

tell you the truth, no.

0:07:300:07:32

about the rights of prisoners.

To

tell you the truth, no.

That changed

0:07:320:07:35

from an hour ago! Thanks for that,

Charlie.

0:07:350:07:42

You give up the right to liberty,

sometimes in some jurisdictions you

0:07:420:07:45

give up the right to life even.

We

stopped doing that.

You guys did. To

0:07:450:07:54

me, that's something you give up. I

think it's a mess to figure out who

0:07:540:08:00

gets the vote, who doesn't get to

vote. I would be worried in that

0:08:000:08:04

sort of environment if people are

forced to vote a certain way, and if

0:08:040:08:09

there's someone, that sort of

dynamic in a prison where you have

0:08:090:08:13

the big guys and the small fish and

the small fish gets pushed around by

0:08:130:08:16

the big guys.

Do you honestly think

they're going to save you don't vote

0:08:160:08:19

Lib Dems I'll kill you, really?

I

don't know how it could be

0:08:190:08:25

accomplished but I could see that

being a possibility.

Both of you

0:08:250:08:28

bring up a point and you're missing

something but you are getting there,

0:08:280:08:32

that actually...

Thanks!

I'm trying

to help you. What springs to mind is

0:08:320:08:37

prison isn't just about punishment,

it's about rehabilitation. We are

0:08:370:08:41

looking at offenders that will be

out in less than a year. This could

0:08:410:08:44

be a chance to engage them in

politics, give them a sense of worth

0:08:440:08:52

and belonging to society.

Exactly.

Listen to me.

Yes, you are right,

0:08:520:08:56

it's supposed to be about

rehabilitation. It's not just...

0:08:560:09:00

Let's move on. There is another

story on the Sunday Times, top BBC

0:09:000:09:07

women exposed sex pests. The paper

says a secret group of the BBC's top

0:09:070:09:15

female presenters have uncovered a

string of suspected cases of sexual

0:09:150:09:18

harassment at the corporation

including a senior sports presenter.

0:09:180:09:22

Mishal Husain is on the cover,

choosing this group of these senior

0:09:220:09:28

reporters, editors, producers, et.

It's not that she's complaining

0:09:280:09:33

about having been harassed or

anything but I guess she's part of

0:09:330:09:37

this group that women are able to go

to, or they are able to go to an

0:09:370:09:41

upper manager and savour the problem

here, this needs...

The BBC has

0:09:410:09:45

released a statement saying we can't

comment on individuals but treat any

0:09:450:09:48

allegation seriously and have

processes in place for investigating

0:09:480:09:53

them. That's the thing, isn't it,

you've been talking about. Your own

0:09:530:09:59

experience.

I was talking about how

this was essentially par for the

0:09:590:10:03

course, a little bit of sexual

harassment. I say a little bit of

0:10:030:10:08

sexual harassment, because that was

how you were made to feel when you

0:10:080:10:11

complained and they said, they'd use

words like, don't be silly, get a

0:10:110:10:15

sense of humour for goodness' sake.

Then we go on to the Meyler.

You've

0:10:150:10:23

got procedures in place where women

can complain but you still got this

0:10:230:10:26

kind of thing going on, allegedly. .

This story is amazing to me. It's

0:10:260:10:32

so... Maybe you expect it at the

local pub or something, the office

0:10:320:10:39

with David Brent or whatever, this

is not something you expect out of a

0:10:390:10:44

parliamentarian.

This is a minister

who sent his PA to buy sex toys. He

0:10:440:10:50

goes on inside to say he can't deny

but it was just high jinks and he

0:10:500:10:54

says he fell out with the woman who

persuaded him to go and do this and

0:10:540:10:58

that's why she's saying this and all

the rest of it, and there are other

0:10:580:11:02

people who are mentioned in this as

being sorry for what they done. It

0:11:020:11:05

points out that like all of these

things, it's about trying to make

0:11:050:11:11

people think before they ask people

to do things, before they come

0:11:110:11:17

before this becomes an issue. Just

think twice. How would this feel if

0:11:170:11:21

it was in the papers? When I was

introduced to Twitter and somebody

0:11:210:11:27

said, do you know what, on Twitter,

just remember, it's like

0:11:270:11:39

shouting on a bus. Would you shout

it on a bus? I know there are lots

0:11:420:11:45

of people who shout really offensive

things.

It will be with you the rest

0:11:450:11:48

of your life.

It behoves you to be

careful.

Treat people as you would

0:11:480:11:52

yourself.

Treat people like your

daughter, or your wife, or whatever.

0:11:520:11:54

There are some people who are

perhaps that the art of flirting

0:11:540:11:56

will die out. I don't think it will

because genuinely I think you can

0:11:560:12:00

tell. You can tell when something is

real.

When a man puts your arm

0:12:000:12:05

around you and condiments you, you

know when it's friendly. You know

0:12:050:12:08

much -- you

you know when it's

friendly or sleazy, you know deep

0:12:080:12:13

down.

Ask your mother to go out and

buy a sex toy.

Would you do that?

Of

0:12:130:12:22

course not, I'm embarrassed thinking

about it.

Shall we end on the story

0:12:220:12:26

giving us something to celebrate.

England win the under 17s World Cup,

0:12:260:12:31

a picture on the front page of the

Observer of the young lions,

0:12:310:12:36

roaring.

Joyful, joyful picture.

They look in at the 5-2 victory,

0:12:360:12:42

some scoring!

-- they look in shock.

I know, is it just me or I always

0:12:420:12:52

feel sorry for the goalie who lets

in five goals. They can't even go to

0:12:520:12:56

the pub to join their sorrows

afterwards because they are 17, or

0:12:560:12:59

younger, so what... You sit around

having your little drink and

0:12:590:13:06

saying... I'm sorry. I was thinking

of the Spanish goalkeeper.

Normally

0:13:060:13:11

you guys feel the opposite of the

guy...

I like an underdog.

You are

0:13:110:13:16

not used to happy. Nelson Mandela

said something effective, it's

0:13:160:13:20

scarier to be at the top. A lot of

people stay down because it's

0:13:200:13:23

something they are used to and it's

scary to be up there. Winning must

0:13:230:13:27

be a new thing.

We did really well

in the 2012 Olympics, I'll have you

0:13:270:13:32

know, and other things.

The under

20s football team won as well and

0:13:320:13:41

these are our future footballers.

I'm just saying.

They all look so

0:13:410:13:45

chuffed.

Thank you for coming in and

joining me the night and taking us

0:13:450:13:49

through the newspapers tomorrow.

Thanks to you for joining us as

0:13:490:13:51

well. Coming up next is the film

review. Have a really good night.
