Hello.

0:00:130:00:15

This is BBC News

with Martine Croxall.

0:00:150:00:16

We'll be taking a look at tomorrow

morning's papers in a moment -

0:00:160:00:19

first the headlines.

0:00:190:00:20

Donald Trump has renewed his attack

on the author of a new book,

0:00:200:00:23

who suggested that the president's

closest advisors question

0:00:230:00:25

his fitness for office.

0:00:250:00:26

Mr Trump called the journalist,

Michael Wolff, "a fraud".

0:00:260:00:29

I consider it a work of fiction

and I think it's a disgrace that

0:00:290:00:33

somebody's able to have something,

do something like that.

0:00:330:00:36

The libel laws are very

weak in this country.

0:00:360:00:39

If they were strong it

would be very helpful.

0:00:390:00:43

You wouldn't have things like that

happen, where you can say

0:00:430:00:45

whatever comes to your head.

0:00:450:00:48

An Ambulance Service has apologised

to the family of an elderly woman

0:00:490:00:52

who died after almost a four hour

wait for paramedics.

0:00:520:00:55

A spokesperson for the Department

of Health said it was a 'tragic

0:00:550:00:58

case' and 'completely unacceptable'.

0:00:580:01:00

Reports from Syria say 17 civilians

have been killed in air raids

0:01:010:01:05

on the rebel-held enclave

of Eastern Ghouta, near Damascus.

0:01:050:01:08

Today's attacks come as aid

workers say hospitals have

0:01:080:01:11

been directly targeted.

0:01:110:01:13

House of Fraser has confirmed

that it has asked landlords

0:01:150:01:17

to reduce rents on some

of its shops.

0:01:170:01:19

The department store chain is due

to reveal its Christmas

0:01:190:01:22

trading figures next week.

0:01:220:01:24

and highlights of click's recent

live show, have to stay safe online.

0:01:330:01:49

Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the papers will be bringing

0:01:500:01:53

us tomorrow. With this eve pollard,

commentator. And also Dharshini.

0:01:530:02:07

The Sunday Times claims that the

Prime Minister will hold a cabinet

0:02:070:02:10

reshuffle on Monday with up to --

macro with several minutes of being

0:02:100:02:15

moved or sacks. The Sunday Telegraph

says that Justin Greaney is fighting

0:02:150:02:24

for the job. Old media posts were

held to contain disgusting tweets.

0:02:240:02:49

The Sunday Express right that

Theresa May has ordered a review

0:02:490:02:52

into parole board after the former

taxi driver John Warboys, found

0:02:520:02:57

guilty of sexual assault against

several women has been released.

0:02:570:03:05

Let's look into the stories about

the reshuffle which will happen next

0:03:050:03:10

week although Downing Street has

been circumspect about whether they

0:03:100:03:13

have got any of the names right.

Some senior ministers looking safe,

0:03:130:03:22

according to this report?

Yes,

Boris's name does not come up. But

0:03:220:03:33

others do not. Shuffling a whole

six-pack. Mrs me is either busy

0:03:330:03:40

being furious about stories or

reshuffling. -- Mrs Theresa May.

0:03:400:03:45

Education, an area that has seen

problems over the last couple of

0:03:450:03:49

years because of funding changes. On

the other hand, you have got Jeremy

0:03:490:03:56

Hunt in charge of another crisis in

Department. It looks like he could

0:03:560:04:00

be moving upwards to replace Damian

Green. So lots going on there. We

0:04:000:04:05

could see a whole raft of new faces.

The idea is to make way for the new

0:04:050:04:12

generation. But Justin Greening has

been popular with the unions, they

0:04:120:04:16

say the she has understood them all.

But Britain is not near the top of

0:04:160:04:22

any list in the education thing.

Reading, maths, they are not great

0:04:220:04:26

at school. I'm afraid this is what

happens. You go into a job and have

0:04:260:04:33

to turn it around really fast or you

are out. There is a feeling that you

0:04:330:04:39

are left with a lot of people here

who don't have kids or whatever

0:04:390:04:44

people are saying, I go to school

every day and everyone to know, want

0:04:440:04:48

to shout about what is going wrong

with my school. The younger Cabinet

0:04:480:04:57

to shout about what is going wrong

with my school. The younger Cabinet,

0:04:570:04:58

a more diverse cabinet would be more

interesting.

Justin Greening was

0:04:580:05:05

educated in a comprehensive. The

first Education Secretary who had

0:05:050:05:08

not been to a public school. And the

idea was that she would understand

0:05:080:05:12

more about social mobility and what

that looks like and people who had

0:05:120:05:17

done the job before.

And to be fair

to her, she has been dealt a hard

0:05:170:05:21

hand because there have been changes

in funding particularly in

0:05:210:05:26

inner-city schools. That is

problematic. How can you deliver

0:05:260:05:30

better results when you are

wondering if you can keep the number

0:05:300:05:33

of teachers you have now? At the

same time, something in the Sunday

0:05:330:05:41

Times, saying that Theresa May might

adopt her patronising tone, whatever

0:05:410:05:45

that means?

Hard to know. Which

politician is not patronising at?

0:05:450:05:56

You have a whole load of new

politicians who are fairly untouched

0:05:560:06:00

by some of the drama is that I've

gone before, give them a go and

0:06:000:06:06

revitalise the whole thing.

It needs

a new look.

You need experience as

0:06:060:06:10

well? She's leaving quite a lot in

place. The Sunday Telegraph

0:06:100:06:16

highlights Justin Greening, saying

she is fighting for her job. But she

0:06:160:06:23

hasn't got a huge amount of room for

manoeuvre?

Very little. And a

0:06:230:06:28

minority government. And she has

very little time because Mr Michel

0:06:280:06:32

Barnier is have -- has had Christmas

with his family and is coming back

0:06:320:06:39

to Brexit. She has to do all this as

well as Brexit.

Downing Street has

0:06:390:06:45

said that all of the speculation in

the Sunday papers is just

0:06:450:06:51

speculation. They are saying it is

all guesswork but we are expecting a

0:06:510:06:55

reshuffle on Monday and Tuesday.

There has to be, because there is a

0:06:550:07:01

vacancy created by Damian Green

moving on. You have to get that in

0:07:010:07:04

place.

There have been a lot of

complaints from civil servants and

0:07:040:07:10

other parts of the non-Brexit

policies that Brexit has taken over.

0:07:100:07:20

Maybe Brexit has to? It is the most

scary thing we are doing. And you

0:07:200:07:26

will work the -- you are working

with Europe with Europe who have

0:07:260:07:43

never done before.

The Daily Mail,

PM's discussed at sordid tweets.

0:07:430:07:51

Toby Young has got a position on the

new office for students watchdog. It

0:07:510:07:59

shows how social media can haunt you

for years.

It is the advice given to

0:07:590:08:04

university students, be careful

about what you write, it could come

0:08:040:08:07

and haunt you. It appears that the

new appointee had not paid attention

0:08:070:08:12

to that. He has deleted many

thousand tweets. Some of which we

0:08:120:08:18

were told one misogynistic or

offensive.

Have you read some of

0:08:180:08:23

them?

Yes.

Of course, when social

media was started, nobody would

0:08:230:08:30

think they would come back and hit

you. I have to say that I know two

0:08:300:08:35

Byung Poong. It was interesting when

we talked about education and he has

0:08:350:08:39

done interesting things with three

schools. But you cannot have

0:08:390:08:43

somebody who has written stuff about

women, which he has, going into

0:08:430:08:49

these semi-governmental positions.

The truth is, the only worrying

0:08:490:08:54

thing is that you grow a group of

people who are dull, boring. The

0:08:540:09:03

whole thing about social media is

that I think we will look back at it

0:09:030:09:09

and say gosh, we used it stupidly at

the beginning.

Some of these tweets

0:09:090:09:13

go back to 2009. People managed to

take a screenshot of them.

They will

0:09:130:09:19

never go.

You can't get rid of them.

It draws comparison with other

0:09:190:09:26

cases. The person from Sheffield who

did a treat us found to be not the

0:09:260:09:34

best person to be on the qualities

committee. And isn't it hypocrisy to

0:09:340:09:39

keep Toby Young?

If it's not part of

the whole Harvey Weinstein thing

0:09:390:09:46

about the attitude to women?

There

is no suggestion that there is

0:09:460:09:51

anything of that nature. Of course

not. If easy to explain it away as

0:09:510:09:58

something you made a mistake on nine

years ago, but I think Toby will

0:09:580:10:02

still in his 40s when he wrote

those!

I don't know if Toby has ever

0:10:020:10:09

answered any of these...

? He could

use the papers.

I think it would be

0:10:090:10:20

interesting. Something should talk

to him about also some other things.

0:10:200:10:23

He is smart and savvy but how stupid

to let all this out on social media.

0:10:230:10:28

Also embarrassing for people who

oversaw the process. You should do

0:10:280:10:33

due diligence if you are hiring

someone.

But you probably talk about

0:10:330:10:38

different things, you don't talk

about...

What's on the road eight

0:10:380:10:41

years ago.

The Sunday Express, PM's fury at

0:10:410:10:47

rate fast. Review into parole board

-- at rape farce. This had been

0:10:470:10:58

poured over for the last few days

because some victims were not

0:10:580:11:01

notified that he this was going to

happen.

Many victims were not

0:11:010:11:06

notified and never included in the

court case that sent him down. So

0:11:060:11:13

there are various things. The

indeterminate sentence, which didn't

0:11:130:11:16

used to exist but does now. You

think when somebody gets an

0:11:160:11:21

indeterminate sentence, they are

going away for a long time. We now

0:11:210:11:24

discover they are not. On the other

thing is, we have seen photographs

0:11:240:11:29

of his kit. A premeditation seems to

be part of it. There is booze,

0:11:290:11:38

drugs, also of things. And the fact

that many women felt that they were

0:11:380:11:42

not even allowed to actually put

their case, I can't believe this

0:11:420:11:47

won't come back to haunt and there

will be another case.

The idea is

0:11:470:11:53

being put forward that there should

be more transparency about how

0:11:530:11:56

parole board makes decisions. The

parole board has said that there is

0:11:560:12:02

not transparency out there. For this

to happen is appalling. You think of

0:12:020:12:07

the 100 other alleged victims who as

we were talking about earlier, this

0:12:070:12:13

is the time now when we could see

them putting their lives back

0:12:130:12:17

together.

The other thing is, it's

another thing that is totally

0:12:170:12:24

transparent about government. How do

you get on the parole board? The

0:12:240:12:28

Wizard made up of? Is there anybody

normal, sensible, practical? Is it

0:12:280:12:34

just full of legal people? It is one

of those things that is coated in

0:12:340:12:40

mystery. How do you get onto the

parole board.

Victims are asked for

0:12:400:12:44

their views of the release but we

never quite know how much they

0:12:440:12:50

figure in the final decision.

And

also victims in this case were not

0:12:500:12:56

told at all.

The Observer, Trump, I'm a very

0:12:560:13:04

stable genius. Bigley. If you have

said, you're probably not! He is

0:13:040:13:13

lashing out because of this book. He

does keep stories going by

0:13:130:13:17

protesting about them.

I know the

journalists. Why was he allowed to

0:13:170:13:25

hang around the White House. Along

if they didn't think he was going to

0:13:250:13:28

produce an article at least if not a

book?

Trump says he has never been

0:13:280:13:35

interviewed by him, that he wasn't

given access to the West Wing at

0:13:350:13:39

all?

Michael Wolff says he has.

And

dinner parties as well.

All of that.

0:13:390:13:50

One fantastically interesting thing,

having been to New York, is it is

0:13:500:13:56

like Donald Trump is on the

apprentice everyday. There is a new

0:13:560:14:01

reality show and he is the star.

He

lost it. He says I went to a very --

0:14:010:14:12

from a very successful businessman

to TV star and President on my first

0:14:120:14:20

try.

That would qualify as genius.

The fact that he now knows that

0:14:200:14:26

people are leaking stuff left right

and centre in the White House and

0:14:260:14:29

keynote that he is now saying that

Michael Wolff didn't do the

0:14:290:14:36

interviews and yet he has got so

much evidence that he has

0:14:360:14:42

gathered...

You have a turnover of

the very senior staff, what to

0:14:420:14:45

expect?

Sloppy Steve? This is

something that every Prime Minister

0:14:450:14:51

has to look at when they do a

reshuffle. Everybody who gets thrown

0:14:510:14:55

out, they talk to the newspapers the

next week. Steve Bannon has

0:14:550:14:59

obviously been a influence behind

this book. He thinks he created this

0:14:590:15:09

president and is very angry. I think

that as long as we are talking about

0:15:090:15:18

him, Donald does not mind.

And when

we have Brexit coming up, this is

0:15:180:15:24

the front page, the President of the

United States saying, I am very

0:15:240:15:27

stable. I said he is a blip. Brexit

is for ever.

We can never get away

0:15:270:15:37

from Trump or Brexit! We have proved

that again tonight. Back again at

0:15:370:15:45

11:30pm. Coming up next is Click.
