Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow.
With me are the poltical
commentator Daisy McAndrew
and the Telegraph's Brexit
commissioning Editor, Asa Bennett.
pages, starting with
the Daily Mirror, which leads
with problems in the Health Service.
The Guardian also goes with the NHS,
and a call from hospitals for more
funding, as well as an image of
Serena Williams with her new baby.
The Metro reports that disgraced
Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has
been attacked in a restaurant.
The Financial Times says
Chancellor Phillip Hammond
is in Germany trying to drum up
enthusiasm for a post-Brexit trade
deal between the EU and the UK.
The Express claims
there is a way to treat
diabetes without using drugs.
The Telegraph reports
that Justine Greening,
who left her job as Education
Secretary on Monday,
blocked a review which might have
recommended cutting tuition fees.
The Sun has news of another
notorious rapist who could soon be
considered for parole.
And the Mail says
the Prime Minister pledging to crack
down on the use
of disposable plastic.
Yes, we have a little bit more on
that, her announcement coming
tomorrow on this poor on waste. But
we will start with...
What else? Brexit! Don't you just
love it? I want to start with Daisy.
Hammond seeks to whip up EU
enthusiasm for Brexit trade deal.
One would sincerely hope the
Chancellor would be doing that, but
what he wants is a specific deal for
He does, but also
this illustrates or illuminates why
these negotiations are so torturous,
because of course every country has
its own constituency looking over
its shoulder, wanting it. For
instance he is in Germany, talking
the Germans, and saying you're not
being terribly fair to us, as in you
want to put the brakes on it, you
want to punish ask for your to have
less talk of punishment and more
talk of cooperation and the Germans
are thinking of course we want to
punish you, you don't want anyone
else to take your example and follow
you down your part. So it is
completely obvious. A lovely quote
the FT has here from a German
official, who says they were very
distressed that we Brits wanted a
bespoke deal, a Kuchar ordeal rather
than just doing a Canada or a Norway
and which would have been much
simpler for them. They quote is we
are pleased they, that's us, finally
dropped it and now it is back like a
zombie. Sounds like the same old
story. But of course we don't just
want to do a Canada or a Norway, of
course we want a bespoke deal, it is
a statement of the obvious.
to be down Savile Row, not top shop,
that is it.
And in fine British
fashion, not Canadian or Norwegian.
English trade, no question about it!
They said you have to ask us for
permission to address how we want
you to dress. I am flaying this
metaphor to dress.
You have flogged
it, it is flogged.
We are currently
in the trash talk of negotiations,
where there is very little detail.
The Germans have their own quit
ready first they say it is the
latest episode of the cake and eat
it sitcom. At the same point we are
on this merry-go-round where Philip
Hammond says it takes two to tango,
and also wants Angela Merkel to
signal what she is willing to give.
The EU are saying can you tell us
what you want, and they say tell us
what you want to give first. The
deadline of March is the net have to
get this all sorted out so they will
have to add flesh to these bones
But it is scary that
Angela Merkel has made it clear that
we cannot be shopping in Savile Row,
you are going to top shop. That is
what she is saying, and as long as
she maintains that, being the most
powerful woman out of the 27, we are
She is the most powerful
and she is not, we don't even have a
-- she doesn't even have a
government. We are reviewing the
British papers, quite rightly, but
if we were reviewing the European
papers, the story would not be in
any of them. Their interest,
involvement, passion for Brexit is
absolutely rock bottom. Most of
these countries have their own
significant problems, and are quite
happy to let the politicians get on
with it, and there is public
interest. They have their own fish
The whole of the 27 would
say they have one overriding
constituency, or one overriding
interest, maintaining the European
Union as an entity in the first
And getting themselves
re-elected, as all politicians want
at the end of the day.
If they give
Britain too good a deal, then the
other member states...
They can do
that too. Interesting this one,
Greening, Telegraph, blocked
situation the cuts.
Greening's departure from cabinet
seem to be the does -- the surprise
of the reshuffle. Nick Timothy, her
former chief of staff has come along
with a page in the Telegraph to
explain why. In short, she wasn't
radical enough. The Prime Minister

stuff on tuition fees, instead it
was this namby-pamby cuts, diet
basically, not proper Conservative
thinking. So he is very commentary
about her replacement, a chap called
Damian Hinds. Already touted as a
potential Prime Minister. I checked
on various betting websites before I

this issue? (!)

It is a very complicated move.
People did think this was someone, a
lesbian cabinet Minister, very much
The face of modern
Britain in some regards. But I heard
an interview that was done with an
educationalist or somebody who knew
the sector very well, saying what
Justin Greening actually did as
Education Secretary was stopped a

an awful lot to do with the fact.
says he didn't.
And you believe him?
Also says he doesn't want to get
back into politics, he is desperate
to, either elected or unelected.
Lots of rumours he has been on the
phone to Theresa May advising who to
get rid of and who not to. He has
been furious since Jo Johnson,
Boris's brother, the other one
sacked in education, and Justin
Greening cut the kibosh on the Prime
Minister's, elements of the speech
at party Conference, he wrote a very
damning article in the Sun about
Justin Greening, totally
pooh-poohing her social mobility
policies. So there is no love lost,

hands with glee now she has been got

Theresa May's long-term vision,
trying to show she has other things
to think about other than Brexit.
Very ambitious, the five the bag
charge extended the small retailers.
She would talk passionately about
the deluge of plastic on our beaches
and said she could even expand the
tax to things like coffee cups and
all sorts to try to get plastic free
aisles in the supermarkets one day.
In 25 years' time, somebody may may
she be still power then? That there
is a wider thing at play here. Part

Maybe this will have a better
job of reinvigorating the government

great designers, the people who
decide what stories they are
promoting at any one time, will be
absolutely delighted with tomorrow's
papers. They got their story on the
front page of at least three. They
are setting the agenda, exactly what
they want. She was on Andrew Marr at
the weekend, the Prime Minister,
saying this is her big push, all to
do with younger voters. The Tory
party and the Labour Party now has
this dramatic difference in age
group and demographic and this is
what it is all about. She will not
pursue the vote on fox hunting, very
unpopular with younger voters, she
is doing £50 million for this
northern forest, which Michael Gove
has been talking about planting 50
million trees between Manchester and
Bradford. These policies will take
an awful long time. There won't be
any obvious results for a long time
but it is all to do with

A very powerful front page,
of course it is the Daily Mirror,
obviously a very strong story. We
saw Jeremy Corbyn going on the NHS
for obvious reasons at Prime
Minister's Questions. People are
very worried about NHS in crisis

is that, like you have clarified, I
have covered NHS stories for a very
long time. You can always get
somebody to save the NHS is in
crisis. I am not saying it is not in
crisis, we have operations being
cancelled, people not getting
treatment, but the NHS is almost
unique, in that if you want hospital
director or a surgeon, if you ask
them the question is it in crisis or
not, they will always say yes,
because it gives them negotiating
influence, and there will always be
a need for more money for so we have
a growing, ageing population and it
is slightly like the boy who cried
wolf, because this is a crisis. I am
sure it is a crisis. But we have
been here 70 times before with Prime
Minister is being put on the rack.
The problem is with the NHS it is
always a political football and you
can't get the politicians to sit
down and be grown up about it
because they know how money votes
there are in it.
is why you have the Daily Mirror, a
left-wing paper, pushing this, very
important, and frankly Acer, this is
their Achilles' heel.
something that Jeremy Hunt feels the
pain in a sense because he did say
the MPs that the NHS would need
significantly more funding over the
next ten years. He is wanting a
solution. Both sides can match for
ten years' time. A lot of people
dress it up with talk of the Royal
commission, which Nick Timothy at
one point back.
Our old friend!
people say it is a way of hitting it
into the long grass. But both sides
can honour and direct and deliver.
In theory. The Guardian, spend now

to go because we have done that to

I am sure he is attacked

his six clinic. This is a chap who
admits to the MZ, the Hollywood
journalist agency committee asked
for a selfie, who was told no, and
then he went and slapped him. I
suspect this guy just wanted to get
himself some publicity, so I am
afraid I am pooh-poohing this story.
Very briefly, I am with you on that,
someone's finger bitten off with a
wild boar. You're be careful in the
Forest of Dean, there are feral wild
boars. That is why they are called

there since the 1990s. They were

years ago. And then some were
released accidentally from a farm in
the 1990s, and have been breeding

camera there, it just went all over
the place and stop you are still
with us and we are still with you.
Thank you. Thank you for watching.

online. If you missed the programme
any time, grabbed the Horlicks if it
is late at night and watch it on
iPlayer. You will see Daisy and Asa
of course, and me. Sorry about that.
