Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers will be

0:00:170:00:19

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:190:00:20

With me are the poltical

commentator Daisy McAndrew

0:00:200:00:22

and the Telegraph's Brexit

commissioning Editor, Asa Bennett.

0:00:220:00:24

Tomorrow's front

pages, starting with

0:00:240:00:25

the Daily Mirror, which leads

with problems in the Health Service.

0:00:250:00:32

The Guardian also goes with the NHS,

and a call from hospitals for more

0:00:320:00:36

funding, as well as an image of

Serena Williams with her new baby.

0:00:360:00:41

The Metro reports that disgraced

Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has

0:00:410:00:43

been attacked in a restaurant.

0:00:430:00:46

The Financial Times says

0:00:460:00:49

Chancellor Phillip Hammond

is in Germany trying to drum up

0:00:490:00:53

enthusiasm for a post-Brexit trade

deal between the EU and the UK.

0:00:530:00:57

The Express claims

there is a way to treat

0:00:570:00:59

diabetes without using drugs.

0:00:590:01:01

The Telegraph reports

0:01:010:01:02

that Justine Greening,

who left her job as Education

0:01:020:01:05

Secretary on Monday,

blocked a review which might have

0:01:050:01:07

recommended cutting tuition fees.

0:01:070:01:11

The Sun has news of another

notorious rapist who could soon be

0:01:110:01:14

considered for parole.

0:01:140:01:17

And the Mail says

0:01:170:01:18

the Prime Minister pledging to crack

down on the use

0:01:180:01:20

of disposable plastic.

0:01:200:01:25

Yes, we have a little bit more on

that, her announcement coming

0:01:250:01:29

tomorrow on this poor on waste. But

we will start with...

What else?

0:01:290:01:38

What else? Brexit! Don't you just

love it? I want to start with Daisy.

0:01:380:01:45

Hammond seeks to whip up EU

enthusiasm for Brexit trade deal.

0:01:450:01:50

One would sincerely hope the

Chancellor would be doing that, but

0:01:500:01:57

what he wants is a specific deal for

certain sectors.

He does, but also

0:01:570:02:02

this illustrates or illuminates why

these negotiations are so torturous,

0:02:020:02:07

because of course every country has

its own constituency looking over

0:02:070:02:12

its shoulder, wanting it. For

instance he is in Germany, talking

0:02:120:02:15

the Germans, and saying you're not

being terribly fair to us, as in you

0:02:150:02:23

want to put the brakes on it, you

want to punish ask for your to have

0:02:230:02:26

less talk of punishment and more

talk of cooperation and the Germans

0:02:260:02:29

are thinking of course we want to

punish you, you don't want anyone

0:02:290:02:32

else to take your example and follow

you down your part. So it is

0:02:320:02:37

completely obvious. A lovely quote

the FT has here from a German

0:02:370:02:41

official, who says they were very

distressed that we Brits wanted a

0:02:410:02:49

bespoke deal, a Kuchar ordeal rather

than just doing a Canada or a Norway

0:02:490:02:53

and which would have been much

simpler for them. They quote is we

0:02:530:02:58

are pleased they, that's us, finally

dropped it and now it is back like a

0:02:580:03:03

zombie. Sounds like the same old

story. But of course we don't just

0:03:030:03:06

want to do a Canada or a Norway, of

course we want a bespoke deal, it is

0:03:060:03:09

a statement of the obvious.

We want

to be down Savile Row, not top shop,

0:03:090:03:16

that is it.

And in fine British

fashion, not Canadian or Norwegian.

0:03:160:03:22

English trade, no question about it!

They said you have to ask us for

0:03:220:03:27

permission to address how we want

you to dress. I am flaying this

0:03:270:03:30

metaphor to dress.

You have flogged

it, it is flogged.

We are currently

0:03:300:03:38

in the trash talk of negotiations,

where there is very little detail.

0:03:380:03:43

The Germans have their own quit

ready first they say it is the

0:03:430:03:53

latest episode of the cake and eat

it sitcom. At the same point we are

0:03:530:03:56

on this merry-go-round where Philip

Hammond says it takes two to tango,

0:03:560:04:01

and also wants Angela Merkel to

signal what she is willing to give.

0:04:010:04:04

The EU are saying can you tell us

what you want, and they say tell us

0:04:040:04:09

what you want to give first. The

deadline of March is the net have to

0:04:090:04:12

get this all sorted out so they will

have to add flesh to these bones

0:04:120:04:15

very soon.

But it is scary that

Angela Merkel has made it clear that

0:04:150:04:20

we cannot be shopping in Savile Row,

you are going to top shop. That is

0:04:200:04:24

what she is saying, and as long as

she maintains that, being the most

0:04:240:04:27

powerful woman out of the 27, we are

in trouble.

She is the most powerful

0:04:270:04:33

and she is not, we don't even have a

-- she doesn't even have a

0:04:330:04:37

government. We are reviewing the

British papers, quite rightly, but

0:04:370:04:40

if we were reviewing the European

papers, the story would not be in

0:04:400:04:43

any of them. Their interest,

involvement, passion for Brexit is

0:04:430:04:49

absolutely rock bottom. Most of

these countries have their own

0:04:490:04:52

significant problems, and are quite

happy to let the politicians get on

0:04:520:04:55

with it, and there is public

interest. They have their own fish

0:04:550:04:59

to fry.

The whole of the 27 would

say they have one overriding

0:04:590:05:03

constituency, or one overriding

interest, maintaining the European

0:05:030:05:09

Union as an entity in the first

place.

And getting themselves

0:05:090:05:14

re-elected, as all politicians want

at the end of the day.

If they give

0:05:140:05:18

Britain too good a deal, then the

other member states...

They can do

0:05:180:05:22

that too. Interesting this one,

Greening, Telegraph, blocked

0:05:220:05:27

situation the cuts.

Justine

Greening's departure from cabinet

0:05:270:05:35

seem to be the does -- the surprise

of the reshuffle. Nick Timothy, her

0:05:350:05:40

former chief of staff has come along

with a page in the Telegraph to

0:05:400:05:44

explain why. In short, she wasn't

radical enough. The Prime Minister

0:05:440:05:48

he believes did want to do real hard

stuff on tuition fees, instead it

0:05:480:05:57

was this namby-pamby cuts, diet

basically, not proper Conservative

0:05:570:06:00

thinking. So he is very commentary

about her replacement, a chap called

0:06:000:06:06

Damian Hinds. Already touted as a

potential Prime Minister. I checked

0:06:060:06:11

on various betting websites before I

came on.

As you do, but what about

0:06:110:06:17

this issue? (!)

Did you put a bet

on?

It is a very complicated move.

0:06:170:06:25

People did think this was someone, a

lesbian cabinet Minister, very much

0:06:250:06:36

a moderniser...

The face of modern

Britain in some regards. But I heard

0:06:360:06:40

an interview that was done with an

educationalist or somebody who knew

0:06:400:06:45

the sector very well, saying what

Justin Greening actually did as

0:06:450:06:48

Education Secretary was stopped a

lot of things, and that excess.

0:06:480:06:54

Grammar schools, continuing sets

tests, and it would seem, some might

0:06:540:06:57

argue, this as well. Then in fact

one of her accomplishments. Things

0:06:570:07:02

are really radical elements within

Conservative thinking as to where

0:07:020:07:06

education should be getting.

I think

they were the element she found a

0:07:060:07:10

mental disagree with. I am sorry she

has gone. I think Nick Timothy had

0:07:100:07:18

an awful lot to do with the fact.

He

says he didn't.

And you believe him?

0:07:180:07:25

Also says he doesn't want to get

back into politics, he is desperate

0:07:250:07:29

to, either elected or unelected.

Lots of rumours he has been on the

0:07:290:07:35

phone to Theresa May advising who to

get rid of and who not to. He has

0:07:350:07:40

been furious since Jo Johnson,

Boris's brother, the other one

0:07:400:07:44

sacked in education, and Justin

Greening cut the kibosh on the Prime

0:07:440:07:48

Minister's, elements of the speech

at party Conference, he wrote a very

0:07:480:07:53

damning article in the Sun about

Justin Greening, totally

0:07:530:07:57

pooh-poohing her social mobility

policies. So there is no love lost,

0:07:570:08:01

no great surprise he's rubbing his

hands with glee now she has been got

0:08:010:08:06

rid of.

And out of Paton. A -- now

up to the Iyer.

0:08:060:08:14

Theresa May's long-term vision,

trying to show she has other things

0:08:200:08:22

to think about other than Brexit.

Very ambitious, the five the bag

0:08:220:08:28

charge extended the small retailers.

She would talk passionately about

0:08:280:08:31

the deluge of plastic on our beaches

and said she could even expand the

0:08:310:08:34

tax to things like coffee cups and

all sorts to try to get plastic free

0:08:340:08:40

aisles in the supermarkets one day.

In 25 years' time, somebody may may

0:08:400:08:43

she be still power then? That there

is a wider thing at play here. Part

0:08:430:08:49

of the rain that of the Tories. It

is something they are reimbursing

0:08:490:08:57

again.

Maybe this will have a better

job of reinvigorating the government

0:08:570:09:01

than the reshuffle did.

Another ten

great designers, the people who

0:09:010:09:07

decide what stories they are

promoting at any one time, will be

0:09:070:09:10

absolutely delighted with tomorrow's

papers. They got their story on the

0:09:100:09:13

front page of at least three. They

are setting the agenda, exactly what

0:09:130:09:18

they want. She was on Andrew Marr at

the weekend, the Prime Minister,

0:09:180:09:22

saying this is her big push, all to

do with younger voters. The Tory

0:09:220:09:25

party and the Labour Party now has

this dramatic difference in age

0:09:250:09:30

group and demographic and this is

what it is all about. She will not

0:09:300:09:35

pursue the vote on fox hunting, very

unpopular with younger voters, she

0:09:350:09:39

is doing £50 million for this

northern forest, which Michael Gove

0:09:390:09:43

has been talking about planting 50

million trees between Manchester and

0:09:430:09:47

Bradford. These policies will take

an awful long time. There won't be

0:09:470:09:52

any obvious results for a long time

but it is all to do with

0:09:520:09:55

demographics.

Trees instead of a

rail line. Onto the mirror. Daisy,

0:09:550:10:08

hospital departments heaving with

patients who have been in A&E 13

0:10:080:10:13

hours, this testimony from one

doctor, I think. But the service

0:10:130:10:16

that gives so much to all of a

sudden I've is on force of goodwill

0:10:160:10:19

alone. Don't forget us, defend us

please.

A very powerful front page,

0:10:190:10:27

of course it is the Daily Mirror,

obviously a very strong story. We

0:10:270:10:32

saw Jeremy Corbyn going on the NHS

for obvious reasons at Prime

0:10:320:10:35

Minister's Questions. People are

very worried about NHS in crisis

0:10:350:10:41

will stop the only thing I would say

is that, like you have clarified, I

0:10:410:10:48

have covered NHS stories for a very

long time. You can always get

0:10:480:10:52

somebody to save the NHS is in

crisis. I am not saying it is not in

0:10:520:10:56

crisis, we have operations being

cancelled, people not getting

0:10:560:11:01

treatment, but the NHS is almost

unique, in that if you want hospital

0:11:010:11:06

director or a surgeon, if you ask

them the question is it in crisis or

0:11:060:11:09

not, they will always say yes,

because it gives them negotiating

0:11:090:11:14

influence, and there will always be

a need for more money for so we have

0:11:140:11:18

a growing, ageing population and it

is slightly like the boy who cried

0:11:180:11:22

wolf, because this is a crisis. I am

sure it is a crisis. But we have

0:11:220:11:27

been here 70 times before with Prime

Minister is being put on the rack.

0:11:270:11:31

The problem is with the NHS it is

always a political football and you

0:11:310:11:36

can't get the politicians to sit

down and be grown up about it

0:11:360:11:39

because they know how money votes

there are in it.

Absolutely, which

0:11:390:11:41

is why you have the Daily Mirror, a

left-wing paper, pushing this, very

0:11:410:11:45

important, and frankly Acer, this is

their Achilles' heel.

It is

0:11:450:11:53

something that Jeremy Hunt feels the

pain in a sense because he did say

0:11:530:11:59

the MPs that the NHS would need

significantly more funding over the

0:11:590:12:04

next ten years. He is wanting a

solution. Both sides can match for

0:12:040:12:10

ten years' time. A lot of people

dress it up with talk of the Royal

0:12:100:12:13

commission, which Nick Timothy at

one point back.

Our old friend!

Some

0:12:130:12:20

people say it is a way of hitting it

into the long grass. But both sides

0:12:200:12:27

can honour and direct and deliver.

In theory. The Guardian, spend now

0:12:270:12:34

to rescue NHS, Hunt is urged. I want

to go because we have done that to

0:12:340:12:39

the metro. Wine stain attacked --

wine Harvey Weinstein attacked and

0:12:390:12:49

restaurant. Not far from the clinic

where he is getting counsel for sex

0:12:490:12:56

addiction.

I am sure he is attacked

most days when he ventures out of

0:12:560:13:01

his six clinic. This is a chap who

admits to the MZ, the Hollywood

0:13:010:13:13

journalist agency committee asked

for a selfie, who was told no, and

0:13:130:13:17

then he went and slapped him. I

suspect this guy just wanted to get

0:13:170:13:20

himself some publicity, so I am

afraid I am pooh-poohing this story.

0:13:200:13:25

Very briefly, I am with you on that,

someone's finger bitten off with a

0:13:250:13:33

wild boar. You're be careful in the

Forest of Dean, there are feral wild

0:13:330:13:37

boars. That is why they are called

wild boars.

They have only been

0:13:370:13:45

there since the 1990s. They were

hunted into extinction hundreds of

0:13:450:13:51

years ago. And then some were

released accidentally from a farm in

0:13:510:13:56

the 1990s, and have been breeding

like wild boars.

Rampaging wild

0:13:560:14:02

boars stop

we had a rampaging wild

camera there, it just went all over

0:14:020:14:10

the place and stop you are still

with us and we are still with you.

0:14:100:14:14

Thank you. Thank you for watching.

You can see all of the front pages

0:14:140:14:23

online. If you missed the programme

any time, grabbed the Horlicks if it

0:14:230:14:30

is late at night and watch it on

iPlayer. You will see Daisy and Asa

0:14:300:14:35

of course, and me. Sorry about that.

Goodbye.

0:14:350:14:38
