Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers will be

0:00:160:00:21

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:210:00:26

With me are Rachel Cunliffe, Comment

and Features Editor at City AM,

0:00:260:00:29

and the Writer & Broadcaster,

Lynn Faulds Wood.

0:00:290:00:33

Leicester see you both. Look at us

without cool colours, the three

0:00:330:00:41

Graces. Allardyce in our cool

0:00:410:00:45

The Financial Times,

which leads with the guilty plea

0:00:480:00:50

by former National Security Advisor

to Donald Trump Paul Flynn,

0:00:500:00:52

for misleading the FBI

about his connections to Russia.

0:00:520:00:54

The I features the warning from

the Brexit Secretary David Davis

0:00:540:00:58

that he would resign

if the Deputy Prime Minister Damian

0:00:580:01:00

Green was forced to quit over claims

pornography was found on his House

0:01:000:01:03

of Commons computer.

0:01:030:01:04

The Daily Mail says

the Conservatives are at war

0:01:040:01:06

with the police over

the accusations, which are

0:01:060:01:08

they say are the product

of a long running feud.

0:01:080:01:11

The Telegraph highlights the danger

to the President following the deal

0:01:110:01:14

made by Paul Flynn to cooperate

with FBI investigators examining

0:01:140:01:16

Russian interference in the US

elections last year.

0:01:160:01:21

The Sun carries a large picture

of Prince Harry's fiance

0:01:210:01:23

The Guardian's top story is also

the guilty plea by Paul Flynn,

0:01:340:01:37

noting the President

was uncharacteristically

0:01:370:01:38

quiet on the matter.

0:01:380:01:39

The Sun carries a large picture

of Prince Harry's fiance

0:01:390:01:41

Meghan Markle on her first public

engagement with the Prince since

0:01:410:01:44

they announced their engagement,

calling her a mega star.

0:01:440:01:46

The Daily Express claims

new research suggests

0:01:460:01:48

if you are overweight you are more

likely to develop dementia,

0:01:480:01:50

those in their 50s with a high

Body Mass Index most at risk.

0:01:500:01:52

We're going to start, then, with

those revelations that admission by

0:01:570:02:04

Michael Flynn, former security

adviser to Donald Trump that he lied

0:02:040:02:09

to the FBI. So it says on the

Guardian.

Not only did he lied, he's

0:02:090:02:13

now what we call in this country as

Queen' evidence or anti-Trump

0:02:130:02:20

evidence. And he's joining the FBI

former director-general Robert

0:02:200:02:28

Miller who is investigating Russian

meddling and has already arrested...

0:02:280:02:35

Meddling in the election last year.

The problem was for Trump is that

0:02:350:02:47

he's likely to or senior figures and

the one they mention is come's

0:02:470:02:56

son-in-law Jared Kusher.

Who was

already been spoken and they say

0:02:560:02:58

they will have him in for another

chat.

Jared Kusher and interesting

0:02:580:03:04

person because he has numerous

contacts with some various dubious

0:03:040:03:13

international character. What is

interesting about Flynn coming

0:03:130:03:15

forward is he has not led guilty to

one count of lying to the FBI which

0:03:150:03:23

is minor compared to what he could

be charged with. They discuss

0:03:230:03:29

sanctions with the Russian

ambassador. I'm not an expert in US

0:03:290:03:34

law but there are a number of other

troubles that he could get into.

0:03:340:03:40

He's pled guilty to one count of the

maximum sentences of five years,

0:03:400:03:44

that's relatively mild. There was

the assumption here that he had

0:03:440:03:48

stuck a deal, he is cooperating, who

is he going to name next?

How high

0:03:480:03:52

up the chain does it go?

At the

moment the only suggestion is Jarrod

0:03:520:03:58

Tesla. However, there are various

rumours that could affect from --

0:03:580:04:06

Jared Kushner. But I suspect is so

clever at tweeting his way out of

0:04:060:04:11

trouble, he changes the subject.

He's been uncharacteristically

0:04:110:04:13

silent.

His to this afternoon, there

was hardly anything for a while and

0:04:130:04:19

nothing really about what's

happening.

Maybe he's getting advice

0:04:190:04:21

on when he feels is an safe

territory Dan Hill comment. The

0:04:210:04:25

White House is saying this

implicates no one. -- then he will

0:04:250:04:29

comment.

They say it's implicating

Obama which is 1984 doublespeak. The

0:04:290:04:37

point that Michael Flynn worked in

the Obama impersonation, calling him

0:04:370:04:41

a former Obama official. For

misconduct.

0:04:410:04:48

--

0:04:490:04:49

chaotic, disruptive and not

following procedures. They point out

0:04:520:04:57

he was only serving for 25 days in

Trump's administration. There was

0:04:570:05:06

good Duport reporting is not because

Trump hounded him out, Trump was

0:05:060:05:10

saying to the end that he was a good

guy and it was the mainstream media.

0:05:100:05:14

They're not guys.

Trump was lauding

him as in the greatest thing since

0:05:140:05:23

sliced three star general is one

they appointed him. Very also saw

0:05:230:05:28

Flynn saying in the run-up to the

election, Flynn was shouting lock up

0:05:280:05:33

Hillary as well. We think this guy

could be made a meal of in the

0:05:330:05:39

witness stand because he seems to be

a bit flaky for a three star

0:05:390:05:44

general.

Meanwhile in Russia they

are saying look, the anti-Russian

0:05:440:05:48

spin continues. You spotted, who is

at the top of the Guardian, Rachel?

0:05:480:05:56

Can you look on Luck is up here.

Hillary Clinton in conversation with

0:05:560:06:03

Mary Beard who I am absolutely a

huge fan of. And Hillary Clinton.

0:06:030:06:08

There she is not laughing at the

current situation? I think given

0:06:080:06:13

Flynn was leading calls to lock her

up, she must be finding this

0:06:130:06:16

bitterly hilarious.

It's an

interesting, I wonder if it's

0:06:160:06:21

coincidental that the Guardian have

put it where they have above the

0:06:210:06:24

masthead tonight. I've dropped it on

the floor, we better move on. We

0:06:240:06:28

were ready anyway. The Daily Mail.

Let's take our time. Tories at war

0:06:280:06:37

with the police. This is over a

former detective speaking to the

0:06:370:06:48

media about...

No, that was Neil

Lewis.

This is where the feud comes

0:06:480:06:52

in. Nine years ago. These images

were found on a computer in Damian

0:06:520:07:01

Green's offers.

As has now been

leaked.

He says it's nothing to do

0:07:010:07:05

with me, I didn't download them, I

didn't feud on House of Commons

0:07:050:07:09

property and that the police

officers query that.

The police

0:07:090:07:14

officer in question is has said that

he knows or he's examined the

0:07:140:07:20

evidence and it's clear he was

Damian Green looking at the time

0:07:200:07:23

periods in which computer it was

used on.

Mingling with e-mails in

0:07:230:07:28

this as well.

There are so many

angles on this story. He denies it

0:07:280:07:35

as well. This evidence was seized

another of years ago at the

0:07:350:07:41

assumption was that had been deleted

and it was all perfectly legal

0:07:410:07:46

content, if unsavoury, and that the

police had promised to raise it and

0:07:460:07:50

one of these police officers thought

this was the wrong decision and

0:07:500:07:53

therefore held onto it and is

leaking it now. The male course this

0:07:530:07:58

a vendetta and said that the police

are trying to oust Damian Green and

0:07:580:08:03

it has become war. I'm torn on this.

I believe please need to follow

0:08:030:08:10

procedure and that if there was

nothing illegal there, that's where

0:08:100:08:15

it should end. At the same time for

the House of Commons has no HR

0:08:150:08:18

department and in any other field of

work, as someone was doing that, he

0:08:180:08:23

said he wasn't, if someone was doing

30 get fired instantly. Parliament

0:08:230:08:26

seems to be the only place that

doesn't happen.

David Davis says

0:08:260:08:31

prepared to consider the

resignation.

If Damian Green gets

0:08:310:08:36

pushed out of his job over this.

Prepared to consider it.

I wonder if

0:08:360:08:42

Davis has had enough of Brexit.

You

can't blame him.

That's just

0:08:420:08:47

speculation. If you look back to

2006 in all of the start, I think

0:08:470:08:52

it's six of one and half a dozen of

the other. They will say the Tories

0:08:520:08:57

are at war of the police but back

then it started when Jacqui Smith

0:08:570:09:01

from Labour was the Home Secretary

and there was a young Tory activist

0:09:010:09:06

coming to David Davis according to

the papers today, to say that he

0:09:060:09:12

wanted to get a job for labour and

then leak information to them. He

0:09:120:09:16

was put on to Damian Green. There

was a history here and Damian Green

0:09:160:09:22

according to the papers today, meet

him in a pub and received these

0:09:220:09:27

secrets from Jacqui Smith's offers.

This is all speculative isn't it was

0:09:270:09:34

Green will say hold on a minute...

This was taken as why the police

0:09:340:09:39

went in...

Damian Green said look of

done nothing wrong here. To some

0:09:390:09:44

people it looks like a witchhunt?

I

think that...

If there were secrets

0:09:440:09:50

out there then unfortunately...

That's not what is being revealed

0:09:500:09:54

here. From the perspective of

Theresa May's Cabinet if she feels

0:09:540:10:02

she has two fire Damian Green and he

does go, who does she have less?

0:10:020:10:06

She's losing Cabinet minister.

Two

already. A couple having on by the

0:10:060:10:11

skin of their teeth.

And several

being investigated quietly by the

0:10:110:10:16

police for inappropriate behaviour.

Presumably with women.

There are

0:10:160:10:22

probably some Labour MPs also being

investigated.

They're not in

0:10:220:10:24

government at the moment. Our

government looks like if they've got

0:10:240:10:28

them a bit of a fix.

Shall we move

on?

Brexit, yea!

Here it is on page

0:10:280:10:37

six, there's so much of it. Warning

Theresa May, we will give Irish

0:10:370:10:43

final say on trade talks.

I don't

think this is a story. The first

0:10:430:10:49

line is that the EU will for Port

Irish veto on trade talks unless

0:10:490:10:54

Theresa May caved in.

No hard border

between Ireland and the republic. --

0:10:540:11:00

Northern Ireland and the republic.

Ireland is an EU member and if the

0:11:000:11:05

story was Belgium said the EU will

support their demands, we wouldn't

0:11:050:11:08

be surprised. We have this idea

because of the said culture and

0:11:080:11:12

history, Ireland should somehow be

on our side but there's no reason

0:11:120:11:16

that the EQ wouldn't support I, this

plays right into their hands.

It's

0:11:160:11:21

stating the obvious. The reason I

think it's a story, they are

0:11:210:11:28

cranking up this anti-British

feeling going into the talks and

0:11:280:11:35

Donald Tusk, the paper says he is

Brussels chief, he has a longer

0:11:350:11:38

title vow that, he is actually

saying the Irish have the vetoes if

0:11:380:11:43

they don't like whatever they are

doing coming out, they have a veto.

0:11:430:11:48

The rest can do what they are

saying. That is I story because

0:11:480:11:53

every week we find a way for the

papacy

0:11:530:11:57

Wanting...

0:11:580:11:59

EU -- papers there are 27 EU states

and they each have a red line.

They

0:12:020:12:07

will go back to their countries and

sell whatever it is to the

0:12:070:12:10

electorate. Rob Nolan that'll be

work visas and migration, France

0:12:100:12:13

will be something like trade tariffs

on agriculture and possibly

0:12:130:12:19

financial regulations, Paris and

Germany. They want to take status of

0:12:190:12:24

London as a financial centres. All

will have demand. This is Ireland's

0:12:240:12:29

demand. The differences we get

emotional and nostalgic unpatriotic?

0:12:290:12:39

And unpatriotic?

0:12:390:12:41

Britain daring wanting to come out

or the UK, bit unfair, and

0:12:420:12:49

absolutely not unfair.

If it's not

an server are some thorny issues

0:12:490:12:52

that have to be decided such as the

citizens rights, the divorce Bill

0:12:520:12:59

and the Irish question.

The biggest

problem is if you don't want a hard

0:12:590:13:04

border, anything can happen going

through that border now. We were

0:13:040:13:08

talking today about to do is develop

software?

Drones. It will be drones.

0:13:080:13:18

It's the sensitivity of having a

border back between the Republic of

0:13:180:13:22

Ireland and Northern Ireland. And

after the goods Friday agreement and

0:13:220:13:28

the solution, finally seeing an end

to the trouble is that we lived

0:13:280:13:32

through, there's an enormous amount

of concern about the idea of

0:13:320:13:37

bringing that border back.

Of course

there is. I don't think there's

0:13:370:13:41

something that most people want do.

Another problem is Theresa May's

0:13:410:13:46

government is propped up by the DUP

and the red Line for them is hard

0:13:460:13:50

border between Northern Ireland and

the rest of the UK, which is

0:13:500:13:53

problematic for the hole for a

number of reasons. Those 10-12 MPs

0:13:530:13:58

controlled the government.

Not to

mention a large amount of our money.

0:13:580:14:05

They have bidding powers for

agreeing to the confidence of

0:14:050:14:08

supply, that's the leverage to use

when you're a politician.

I have

0:14:080:14:11

reached the point where I listen to

the people saying why don't we just

0:14:110:14:16

have another referendum because no

one thought it would be such a

0:14:160:14:20

horrible mess with other lawyers

did.

I don't think we can handle

0:14:200:14:23

another referendum.

Can you handle

what's happening? It appears to we

0:14:230:14:31

haven't got many cards in this.

When

we've got the deal, maybe were will

0:14:310:14:37

be a rethink. Cough mixture. We need

a consumer story when Lynn is in.

0:14:370:14:44

Cough syrup is rescue the children,

what's wrong with it?

They're saying

0:14:440:14:48

you could end up giving the child

too much. The big problem with

0:14:480:14:53

children's medicine, eight years

I've helped the coalition, take

0:14:530:15:00

cancer retreating, they get cut down

adult medicine. Medicines tend not

0:15:000:15:06

to be developed especially for

children.

Body weight often isn't

0:15:060:15:10

it?

There are various stories about

people trying to quieten their baby

0:15:100:15:18

sometimes by giving them the

medicine, it's very easy to

0:15:180:15:21

overdosage children. We should look

at children better than we do to and

0:15:210:15:29

give guidance to parents of what is

risky and what isn't. Aspirin and we

0:15:290:15:35

decided was risky in small children

and a lot of children are very

0:15:350:15:38

confused.

0:15:380:15:39

Never give

0:15:410:15:41

you'd never give children apropos

proposed fairness there was a

0:15:440:15:46

danger.

No brand names, but once

Europe sofa covered in pink fabric

0:15:460:15:55

the same as a particular brand

medicine that you gave children.

0:15:550:16:00

There's always a danger of overdose?

There is always a danger and parents

0:16:000:16:05

will try to do whatever is best for

the child, that is so much

0:16:050:16:08

conflicting information about

medicine and all kinds of things

0:16:080:16:10

when you are pregnant and this food

has this effect in adult life. It's

0:16:100:16:20

not possible ever to act in a

completely risk-free way. This is

0:16:200:16:23

very scary.

What they are saying him

as actually, nothing is better just

0:16:230:16:29

rest. A pill for every ill is doing

a lot of damage.

There probably is

0:16:290:16:39

problem which is over meditating as

adults and children and rest, it

0:16:390:16:44

will get better on their own.

An

old-fashioned honey and lemon drink

0:16:440:16:48

they are suggesting.

Sounds nice.

Plenty of rest. Not when you're

0:16:480:16:53

trying to sleep though. We've all

been there. Two people got engaged,

0:16:530:16:58

did you know?

Breaking news. It's

all over everything tonight.

The sun

0:16:580:17:07

have a picture of Megan Marco. Not

the best picture of her.

Their hair

0:17:070:17:11

looks a bit grey on the cover of the

Sun. I can say what I like.

This

0:17:110:17:23

come out in Nottingham, first outing

as an official royal. Everyone loved

0:17:230:17:29

her and she was very charismatic,

obviously she's an actress and is

0:17:290:17:32

used to crowd, I don't know what to

say about this except that the

0:17:320:17:36

causes they were supporting in

Nottingham are very important. They

0:17:360:17:41

were there for world AIDS Day and

for the programme working for medal

0:17:410:17:46

health and young people.

The

Express, while talking, that show

0:17:460:17:50

the paper. The express.

I think this

is potentially very good for the

0:17:500:17:57

world family. I'm not Scottish

sometimes.

Balmoral.

That English

0:17:570:18:02

people live there. I work with

Princess Diana on the Old Course to

0:18:020:18:12

do with children and I think that

Harry who has a social contrast...

0:18:120:18:19

-- social conscience, that his role

in life, his brother has to wait to

0:18:190:18:26

be king. Meghan Markle also has a

social conscience and think you

0:18:260:18:29

might find this couple will turn out

to be a serious good for the world

0:18:290:18:35

play their cards right.

Let's give

the last word to Matt. As a reporter

0:18:350:18:42

standing, talking to camera saying

after Meghan Markle's triumphant

0:18:420:18:47

first royal visit she will go to

Brussels to negotiate a better

0:18:470:18:52

Brexit deal.

That solves the David

Davis problem.

She can walk on water

0:18:520:18:57

as the Channel while she does.

0:18:570:18:59

That's it for The Papers tonight.

0:18:590:19:00

Don't forget you can see the front

pages of the papers online

0:19:000:19:03

on the BBC News website.

0:19:030:19:04

It's all there for you -

seven days a week at bbc dot co uk

0:19:040:19:08

forward slash papers -

and if you miss the programme any

0:19:080:19:11

later on BBC iPlayer.

0:19:110:19:13

Goodbye.
