with Martine Croxall.
We'll be taking a look at tomorrow
morning's papers in a moment -
first the headlines.
Donald Trump has renewed his attack
on the author of a new book,
who suggested that the president's
closest advisors question
his fitness for office.
Mr Trump called the journalist,
Michael Wolff, "a fraud".
I consider it a work of fiction
and I think it's a disgrace that
somebody's able to have something,
do something like that.
The libel laws are very
weak in this country.
If they were strong it
would be very helpful.
You wouldn't have things like that
happen, where you can say
whatever comes to your head.
An Ambulance Service has apologised
to the family of an elderly woman
who died after almost a four hour
wait for paramedics.
A spokesperson for the Department
of Health said it was a 'tragic
case' and 'completely unacceptable'.
Reports from Syria say 17 civilians
have been killed in air raids
on the rebel-held enclave
of Eastern Ghouta, near Damascus.
Today's attacks come as aid
workers say hospitals have
been directly targeted.
House of Fraser has confirmed
that it has asked landlords
to reduce rents on some
of its shops.
The department store chain is due
to reveal its Christmas
trading figures next week.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the papers will be bringing
us tomorrow. With this eve pollard,
commentator. And also Dharshini.
The Sunday Times claims that the
Prime Minister will hold a cabinet
reshuffle on Monday with up to --
macro with several minutes of being
moved or sacks. The Sunday Telegraph
says that Justin Greaney is fighting
for the job. Old media posts were
held to contain disgusting tweets.
The Sunday Express right that
Theresa May has ordered a review
into parole board after the former
taxi driver John Warboys, found
guilty of sexual assault against
several women has been released.
Let's look into the stories about
the reshuffle which will happen next
week although Downing Street has
been circumspect about whether they
have got any of the names right.
Some senior ministers looking safe,
according to this report?
Boris's name does not come up. But
others do not. Shuffling a whole
six-pack. Mrs me is either busy
being furious about stories or
reshuffling. -- Mrs Theresa May.
Education, an area that has seen
problems over the last couple of
years because of funding changes. On
the other hand, you have got Jeremy
Hunt in charge of another crisis in
Department. It looks like he could
be moving upwards to replace Damian
Green. So lots going on there. We
could see a whole raft of new faces.
The idea is to make way for the new
generation. But Justin Greening has
been popular with the unions, they
say the she has understood them all.
But Britain is not near the top of
any list in the education thing.
Reading, maths, they are not great
at school. I'm afraid this is what
happens. You go into a job and have
to turn it around really fast or you
are out. There is a feeling that you
are left with a lot of people here
who don't have kids or whatever
people are saying, I go to school
every day and everyone to know, want
to shout about what is going wrong
with my school. The younger Cabinet
to shout about what is going wrong
with my school. The younger Cabinet,
a more diverse cabinet would be more
Justin Greening was
educated in a comprehensive. The
first Education Secretary who had
not been to a public school. And the
idea was that she would understand
more about social mobility and what
that looks like and people who had
done the job before.
And to be fair
to her, she has been dealt a hard
hand because there have been changes
in funding particularly in
inner-city schools. That is
problematic. How can you deliver
better results when you are
wondering if you can keep the number
of teachers you have now? At the
same time, something in the Sunday
Times, saying that Theresa May might
adopt her patronising tone, whatever
Hard to know. Which
politician is not patronising at?
You have a whole load of new
politicians who are fairly untouched
by some of the drama is that I've
gone before, give them a go and
revitalise the whole thing.

You need experience as
well? She's leaving quite a lot in
place. The Sunday Telegraph
highlights Justin Greening, saying
she is fighting for her job. But she
hasn't got a huge amount of room for
Very little. And a
minority government. And she has
very little time because Mr Michel
Barnier is have -- has had Christmas
with his family and is coming back
to Brexit. She has to do all this as
well as Brexit.
Downing Street has
said that all of the speculation in
the Sunday papers is just
speculation. They are saying it is
all guesswork but we are expecting a
reshuffle on Monday and Tuesday.
There has to be, because there is a
vacancy created by Damian Green
moving on. You have to get that in
There have been a lot of
complaints from civil servants and
other parts of the non-Brexit
policies that Brexit has taken over.
Maybe Brexit has to? It is the most
scary thing we are doing. And you
will work the -- you are working
with Europe with Europe who have
never done before.
The Daily Mail,
PM's discussed at sordid tweets.
Toby Young has got a position on the
new office for students watchdog. It
shows how social media can haunt you
It is the advice given to
university students, be careful
about what you write, it could come
and haunt you. It appears that the
new appointee had not paid attention
to that. He has deleted many
thousand tweets. Some of which we
were told one misogynistic or

media was started, nobody would
think they would come back and hit
you. I have to say that I know two
Byung Poong. It was interesting when
we talked about education and he has
done interesting things with three
schools. But you cannot have
somebody who has written stuff about
women, which he has, going into
these semi-governmental positions.
The truth is, the only worrying
thing is that you grow a group of
people who are dull, boring. The
whole thing about social media is
that I think we will look back at it
and say gosh, we used it stupidly at
Some of these tweets
go back to 2009. People managed to
take a screenshot of them.
You can't get rid of them.
It draws comparison with other
cases. The person from Sheffield who
did a treat us found to be not the
best person to be on the qualities

keep Toby Young?

I think it would be

to him about also some other things.
He is smart and savvy but how stupid
to let all this out on social media.

What's on the road eight
The Sunday Express, PM's fury at
rate fast. Review into parole board
-- at rape farce. This had been
poured over for the last few days
because some victims were not
notified that he this was going to
Many victims were not
notified and never included in the
court case that sent him down. So
there are various things. The
indeterminate sentence, which didn't
used to exist but does now. You
think when somebody gets an
indeterminate sentence, they are
going away for a long time. We now
discover they are not. On the other
thing is, we have seen photographs
of his kit. A premeditation seems to
be part of it. There is booze,
drugs, also of things. And the fact
that many women felt that they were
not even allowed to actually put
their case, I can't believe this
won't come back to haunt and there
will be another case.
The idea is
being put forward that there should
be more transparency about how
parole board makes decisions. The
parole board has said that there is
not transparency out there. For this
to happen is appalling. You think of
the 100 other alleged victims who as
we were talking about earlier, this
is the time now when we could see
them putting their lives back
The other thing is, it's
another thing that is totally
transparent about government. How do
you get on the parole board? The
Wizard made up of? Is there anybody
normal, sensible, practical? Is it
just full of legal people? It is one
of those things that is coated in
mystery. How do you get onto the
Victims are asked for
their views of the release but we
never quite know how much they
figure in the final decision.
also victims in this case were not
told at all.
The Observer, Trump, I'm a very
stable genius. Bigley. If you have
said, you're probably not! He is
lashing out because of this book. He
does keep stories going by
protesting about them.
I know the
journalists. Why was he allowed to
hang around the White House. Along

produce an article at least if not a

All of that.
One fantastically interesting thing,
having been to New York, is it is
like Donald Trump is on the

reality show and he is the star.

the very senior staff, what to
Sloppy Steve? This is
something that every Prime Minister
has to look at when they do a
reshuffle. Everybody who gets thrown
out, they talk to the newspapers the
next week. Steve Bannon has
obviously been a influence behind
this book. He thinks he created this
president and is very angry. I think
that as long as we are talking about
him, Donald does not mind.
we have Brexit coming up, this is
the front page, the President of the
United States saying, I am very
stable. I said he is a blip. Brexit
is for ever.
We can never get away
from Trump or Brexit! We have proved
that again tonight. Back again at
11:30pm. Coming up next is Click.
