humans are the dominant cause

of the global warming.

0:00:000:00:00

The White House has

downplayed the conclusions.

0:00:000:00:05

Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers

0:00:170:00:20

will be bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:200:00:21

With me are Nigel Nelson,

0:00:210:00:23

Political Editor at the Sunday

Mirror and Sunday People,

0:00:230:00:25

and political commentator,

Jo Phillips.

0:00:250:00:29

Tomorrow's front pages,

starting with:

0:00:290:00:32

The Sunday Express says a crackdown

on the subsidised drinking culture

0:00:320:00:36

in Parliament is to be launched,

0:00:360:00:37

in the wake of the

Westminster sex scandal.

0:00:370:00:41

The Sunday Telegraph says

Theresa May's aides

0:00:410:00:45

sat on allegations against

senior Conservatives.

0:00:450:00:49

The Observer reports

claims about Sir Michael Fallon,

0:00:490:00:55

who suddenly resigned

from cabinet last week.

0:00:560:00:58

The paper alleges that a female

journalist told Number 10

0:00:580:01:05

that he had tried to kiss her,

in 2003, after a lunch.

0:01:050:01:09

The Mail on Sunday leads

on allegations involving

0:01:090:01:11

the Tory whip, Chris Pincher.

0:01:110:01:12

The paper claims the Tamworth MP

made an unwanted sexual pass

0:01:120:01:15

at the former Olympic rower

and Conservative activist

0:01:150:01:23

Alex Story in 2001.

0:01:230:01:24

In a statement Mr Pincher said,

0:01:240:01:25

"If Mr Story has ever felt offended

by anything I said then I can only

0:01:250:01:29

apologise to him."

0:01:290:01:30

The Sunday Times details

allegations dating back

0:01:300:01:37

to 2008, that police found

pornography on the computer

0:01:370:01:40

of one of Theresa May's

closest allies,

0:01:400:01:42

Damian Green.

0:01:420:01:42

Mr Green categorically denies

the claims which he says

0:01:420:01:45

are unscrupulous and untrue.

0:01:450:01:47

So let's begin...

0:01:470:01:51

A lot to wade through and use of the

word advisedly.

0:01:510:02:00

A lot to wade through and use of the

word advisedly. Some serious some

0:02:000:02:01

less so but clearly a big issue. And

the Sunday Telegraph focusing on who

0:02:010:02:10

knew what and how much information

are we not hearing.

This is the

0:02:100:02:13

question that not only we are asking

and the newspapers but what is being

0:02:130:02:22

asked amongst MPs. The blips, who

run the vertical parties, they run

0:02:220:02:28

it through discipline and through

that discipline, they know people's

0:02:280:02:35

secrets. There has always been a

degree of suspicion about the amount

0:02:350:02:40

of power of the whips hold. A number

of questions about Gavin Barwell, at

0:02:400:02:50

cheap weep -- chief, who is now at

chief of staff and questions about

0:02:500:02:59

Gavin Williamson who has become

defence secretary, against a lot of

0:02:590:03:06

people 's... A lot of people 's

surprises. It is about who knew what

0:03:060:03:16

when and who did you go to complain

because if the people you complain

0:03:160:03:24

to use that knowledge is this not a

sensible system.

What do you make of

0:03:240:03:30

these?

Very similar to Joe. They

have to address the way whips

0:03:300:03:37

parade. There are allegations that

whips are hiding this and that there

0:03:370:03:43

may be other reasons for this. A

woman may complain and say I do not

0:03:430:03:50

want to take this any further. A lot

of the time the MPs do not know the

0:03:500:03:58

complaint is being made to the

whips. The whole system needs to be

0:03:580:04:06

cleaned up and one of the places

they will look at is exactly what

0:04:060:04:10

secrets the whips keep on how they

use them.

The Mail on Sunday has a

0:04:100:04:16

new story with claims Chris Pincher,

dating back some time.

Dating back

0:04:160:04:24

to the time before he was an MP were

he will be deeply had been described

0:04:240:04:38

of making approaches like Harvey

Weinstein. They had been at some

0:04:380:04:47

Tory party event with Mr Pincher who

was not an MP at the time. They went

0:04:470:04:53

out the drinks and dinner and went

back to his house and made unwonted

0:04:530:04:57

advances. Mr Pincher says, if Mr

Storey has felt offended, then I can

0:04:570:05:05

only apologise. The fact that a lot

of these allegations are historic

0:05:050:05:14

but what Mr Storey has said Anne

goes back to the first point we were

0:05:140:05:18

making, is that Mr Pincher is now a

government whip. That may lead to

0:05:180:05:26

someone else faced with a similar

predicament. That is at the nub of a

0:05:260:05:33

lot of this. You may be afraid to

say anything because it may damage

0:05:330:05:39

your career or you fear that nothing

will be done.

Much will difficult,

0:05:390:05:46

if you want to be an MP and it is a

very long process to go and do it

0:05:460:05:53

and on the basis of that, you will

be worried about getting a black

0:05:530:05:57

mark against you. That has stopped

an awful lot of people from doing

0:05:570:06:01

that.

While you are with us, the

Sunday at post taxes to Scotland.

0:06:010:06:08

The tentacles of this story are

going to spread.

I think that is

0:06:080:06:13

right. If you think about it

started, Harvey Weinstein and moves

0:06:130:06:18

out to a lot of other institutions.

This is the childcare Minister, Mark

0:06:180:06:24

McDonald, in Scotland, his quote on

the basis that he feels his

0:06:240:06:32

behaviour has not come up to

standard in the past. It shows that

0:06:320:06:36

it is moving elsewhere and in the

European Parliament, you have 30 odd

0:06:360:06:41

allegations that now of

inappropriate behaviour. They are

0:06:410:06:46

trying to sort out a whole new

safeguarding system over there,

0:06:460:06:51

similar to hear. I think every

institution is going to be hit here.

0:06:510:06:56

Mark McDonnell has put out a

statement saying some of my previous

0:06:560:07:01

actions have been considered to be

inappropriate where I believe myself

0:07:010:07:06

to be merely humourous or friendly.

My behaviour may have made others

0:07:060:07:11

uncomfortable and it is my

responsibility and I apologise

0:07:110:07:15

unreservedly to anyone I have upset

or may have found my behaviour

0:07:150:07:20

inappropriate. It is a sideline but

it will show people having

0:07:200:07:26

resignations with not so much

clarity. Someone has clearly felt

0:07:260:07:32

aggrieved and upset and we are going

to sit movement records of that.

0:07:320:07:37

Yes, we are going to sit movement

and also people resigning and people

0:07:370:07:41

saying, there is no smoke without

fire. This might have been a minor

0:07:410:07:47

incident but there are obviously

more skeletons in the Cabinet. But

0:07:470:07:52

we need some perspective. As with

all human relationships, and in a

0:07:520:07:57

working environment, a lot of it is

about nuance and some of that is

0:07:570:08:02

about what older people might accept

as gentlemanly, behaviour and other

0:08:020:08:11

people might find repugnant. The

feel so intimidated, apparently,

0:08:110:08:21

from a crass remark that she left

five years before she mentioned that

0:08:210:08:27

beggars belief. Where is the

example, she is the Leader of the

0:08:270:08:34

House and is going to be part of

this revamp so I want to say, why

0:08:340:08:38

did you not say something? I get

into that level in politics we have

0:08:380:08:44

to have sharp elbows and a sharp

tongue, and be able to call a spade

0:08:440:08:48

is vague, wouldn't you have said,

Michael, that is totally

0:08:480:08:53

inappropriate.

The same question as

to why powerful women in Hollywood

0:08:530:09:00

have not spoken up earlier.

That

takes us on to the Sunday express. I

0:09:000:09:05

will get both of your views. A

possible way to change the way

0:09:050:09:13

things are done and businesses run

in the comments.

Cheap bars, there

0:09:130:09:17

are several bars of their. It is

nothing like it used to be when I

0:09:170:09:24

worked in the comments were you

could pretty much drink around the

0:09:240:09:27

clock... And we did! Yes, we did.

Sitting outside with Charlie Kennedy

0:09:270:09:36

at three o'clock in the morning when

the votes were still going on. It

0:09:360:09:40

can change the culture to a certain

extent that you have people away

0:09:400:09:46

from home, you have drinks - less so

than in the past - but it does make

0:09:460:09:52

people behave in a different way and

in an inappropriate way. One of the

0:09:520:10:03

bars, where everybody can go, does

seem quite often to be at the centre

0:10:030:10:09

of these allegations.

One of the

bars your friend Andrea Leadsom is

0:10:090:10:17

talking about in the Sunday express,

closing bars like that and change

0:10:170:10:23

the amount of alcohol consumed. It

is already an awful lot less than it

0:10:230:10:29

used to be. And meals have water

rather than a bottle of wine with

0:10:290:10:36

them these days.

Damon Green,

Theresa May is deputy and new

0:10:360:10:39

allegations.

One of the most

important point to make about this

0:10:390:10:47

is that it has got nothing to do

with sexual harassment whatsoever.

0:10:470:10:52

What the Sunday Times as saying is

back in 2000 date, when Damian

0:10:520:10:57

Green's offices were raided by

police that some pornographic images

0:10:570:11:01

were found on computers there. There

is no suggestion they were anything

0:11:010:11:07

to do with him. He has made the

point that the material was actually

0:11:070:11:12

perfectly lawful. One of the

investigating officers said some of

0:11:120:11:18

it might have been extreme. That is

the extent of the story. There were

0:11:180:11:25

rumours today about the story

appearing and Damien would have to

0:11:250:11:28

resign by tomorrow but he will not

have to resign over a story like

0:11:280:11:33

this and it is at a time with every

thing else going on...

He says the

0:11:330:11:41

claim is untrue and he has been very

firm in his denial. But once

0:11:410:11:48

somebody is in people's sites... The

Observer especially Michael Fallon

0:11:480:11:54

and it brings us back to news from

last week the stop but it is the

0:11:540:11:58

trip, drip.

The journal is confirms

it was her and that it was Michael

0:11:580:12:08

Fallon that make a lunch at her at

large. He was 29 years old at the

0:12:080:12:17

time. She said she felt humiliated

and ashamed, did I led him on? Back

0:12:170:12:25

to the drinking culture in many

years ago again. Michael, according

0:12:250:12:29

to a friend of his, realises that

this kind of instant is unacceptable

0:12:290:12:34

and which is why he had to resign

but it comes back to this... The

0:12:340:12:43

impression was that it was a 1-off

incidents. And it is like oh, it is

0:12:430:12:51

Michael Beer Michael. Everybody had

had too much to drink but what she's

0:12:510:12:55

saying at this is where you get into

this tangled web of the news, what

0:12:550:12:59

could she have done? It is that sort

of empowerment. People will go, hang

0:12:590:13:07

on, chaps, this is not on.

Plenty

more to talk about on this subject

0:13:070:13:13

but tell us about this slightly more

quirky story...

0:13:130:13:21

Things are not what they used to be.

Nursery rhymes are going out of

0:13:260:13:31

fashion. Nursery rhymes are going

out of fashion and young people

0:13:310:13:45

today, they are doing Peppa Pig iPad

games etc. The argument is we need

0:13:450:13:55

to get nursery rhymes back in school

so we can make them better prepared

0:13:550:13:59

for school later on.

Look at the

cartoon. It will make you smile. In

0:13:590:14:08

the meantime, thank you to both of

you. That is all we have time for.
