Hello, this is BBC News.

0:00:050:00:07

We'll be taking a look at tomorrow

mornings papers in a moment.

0:00:070:00:09

First, the headlines.

0:00:090:00:11

Talks are being held over the future

of troubled engineering giant,

0:00:110:00:14

Carillion, which battling

against debt and a

0:00:140:00:16

pensions shortfall.

0:00:170:00:19

The firm, which is trying to reach

an agreement with creditors,

0:00:190:00:22

is a key government contractor

for projects including HS2.

0:00:220:00:25

Hawaii's governor apologises

after an emergency alert was sent

0:00:250:00:30

out warning people of an incoming

ballistic missile threat.

0:00:300:00:35

People were urged to seek shelter

and told it was not a drill.

0:00:350:00:38

President Trump has been briefed.

0:00:380:00:41

Dentists are warning

of a tooth decay crisis among

0:00:410:00:43

children in England.

0:00:430:00:45

It's after figures revealed a record

43,000 operations to remove rotting

0:00:450:00:48

teeth were carried out last year.

0:00:480:00:52

On meet the author of this week,

Mike Guest is an American brighter

0:00:570:01:02

of Korean descent whose first novel

is an evocative story of two sisters

0:01:020:01:09

who seem to lose everything in war

in Korea but whose love for each

0:01:090:01:15

other NGOs. -- engineers. --

endures.

0:01:150:01:28

Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the papers will be

0:01:280:01:31

bringing us tomorrow.

0:01:310:01:32

With me are Anne Ashworth,

associate editor at the Times,

0:01:320:01:35

and the author, playwright

and columnist in the

0:01:350:01:37

New European, Bonnie Greer.

0:01:370:01:38

Tomorrow's front pages.

0:01:380:01:43

The Sunday Times, which reports

that the new Justice Secretary

0:01:430:01:46

is preparing to intervene to halt

the release of the so-called black

0:01:460:01:49

cab rapist, John Worboys.

0:01:490:01:51

The Sunday Telegraph

has an interview with

0:01:510:01:54

the new Conservative party chairman

- he tells the paper he wants

0:01:540:01:57

to galvanise the party's

digital campaigning.

0:01:570:02:02

The Observer reports claims

by Nigel Farage that pro-Europeans

0:02:020:02:05

could overturn the result

of the Brexit referendum

0:02:050:02:08

and that the Leave side

has stopped fighting.

0:02:080:02:13

And the Sunday Express claims

economists are warning the EU that

0:02:130:02:16

failing to reach a Brexit deal

with Britain could

0:02:160:02:18

cost it £500 billion.

0:02:180:02:23

So, let's begin.

0:02:230:02:29

We are going to start this evening

with the Observer and Nigel Farage

0:02:290:02:34

who has had a couple of things

0:02:340:02:35

with the Observer and Nigel Farage

who has had a couple of things this

0:02:350:02:36

with the Observer and Nigel Farage

who has had a couple of things this

0:02:360:02:36

week, started off saying he thinks

there should be a second referendum

0:02:360:02:40

and it rather bizarrely put him in

agreement with Vince Cable. He said

0:02:400:02:48

he thought the league side would

winds very well and now he seems to

0:02:480:02:51

be saying the opposite.

But two days

later, he thinks the Remainers will

0:02:510:02:55

winds the day because he feels the

Leave campaign is futile and

0:02:550:03:00

hopeless, they have given up the

fight, and that remain points is the

0:03:000:03:07

input watch more strongly. I'm not

quite sure where he is getting any

0:03:070:03:10

of the evidence for these views from

but I just wonder whether he just

0:03:100:03:16

loves the limelight so much that he

cannot bear not to be in it, or that

0:03:160:03:22

he is hoping that the vacancy at the

top of the Duke chip will -- of Ukip

0:03:220:03:29

will become clear and he can jump in

and save the party. Is barely making

0:03:290:03:33

sense.

I think what Anis saying is

the hub of it. This guy it didn't

0:03:330:03:42

get where he is without knowing how

to manipulate the limelight. There

0:03:420:03:46

is a slight shift, if the question

were asked, towards remain. John

0:03:460:03:53

Curtis who has been knighted in the

new years Honours list, it is there.

0:03:530:03:59

But ask the question again is

ridiculous. And I am a passionate

0:03:590:04:01

Remainer. I think it would be

insulting to ask people this

0:04:010:04:07

question again. I think what could

be asked, because I fully, the

0:04:070:04:12

referendum is an arc of asking the

people how they feel, people could

0:04:120:04:15

be asked about how people feel about

that heal, would you rather remain

0:04:150:04:21

do you buy it? And this time, get 16

and 17-year-olds involved because

0:04:210:04:27

this is deftly checked, and go for a

supermajority. The wind is very

0:04:270:04:33

tiny, and act truly, Michael Farage

did say to the Daily Mirror a couple

0:04:330:04:39

of years ago that it was safe to 48

remain then the question is

0:04:390:04:46

unsettled. So, he is aware through

the arc and movement of things but I

0:04:460:04:52

wouldn't trust it.

I wonder if he is

talking about the shape of the deal

0:04:520:04:59

emerging. Talk of a transition

period, for example, where people

0:04:590:05:04

won't notice much of a difference,

he worries it is all being watered

0:05:040:05:08

down and their white beard clean

break.

He wants a divorce in which

0:05:080:05:13

either side doesn't release speak to

each other. And we think that might

0:05:130:05:19

not quite how it unfolds. And he's

also possibly seeing that the trade

0:05:190:05:23

deals that people were so confident

about may not be so readily

0:05:230:05:26

available. However, I do always

wonder why so much attention is paid

0:05:260:05:31

to a man who has not how whatsoever.

Because he is click bait. He's a

0:05:310:05:39

televisual clown. Vets face it, most

politicians are not very

0:05:390:05:44

interesting, I am glad, because it

means they are doing their work. But

0:05:440:05:50

this one knows how to grab the

limelight. He said it on the

0:05:500:05:54

breakfast show, off the top of his

head, and the presenter was going,

0:05:540:05:59

what? What? What?

He is credited

with changing the political than a

0:05:590:06:07

Mac, changing the discussion. It was

because of him and his party that we

0:06:070:06:12

reach the point where we had a

referendum.

He had one job and he

0:06:120:06:16

did it, which was to ensure two had

-- we had a referendum.

In the

0:06:160:06:25

United States, he is being touted as

the creator of Brexit. There he is

0:06:250:06:29

getting all these roses thrown at

him in the United States, most

0:06:290:06:33

Americans don't even know what the

Brexit is, and is completely light

0:06:330:06:40

-- right, this is about the

limelight. But he hasn't given us

0:06:400:06:44

any idea about what talking about.

But that isn't important. The end

0:06:440:06:49

instatement is what is important. He

is saying it is a top whistle to his

0:06:490:06:55

face, he is saying, put me in

charge, these people are selling out

0:06:550:07:00

and we need to do this.

He has come

back many times before. It takes us

0:07:000:07:05

daily to the others all the front

page of the Observer, Trump row is a

0:07:050:07:15

risk. Donald Trump of Mac

deteriorating relationship with

0:07:150:07:21

Britain.

A lot of people thought

these deals would be easily done but

0:07:210:07:34

they take the case to sort out. It

is an extraordinary thing, this

0:07:340:07:39

distaste that Trump has developed

for Britain just as a time when we

0:07:390:07:44

meet to be talking more to this man,

how about the Paris climate accord

0:07:440:07:51

and other things.

I have to say, I'm

proud of this come true. No one

0:07:510:07:58

America would think it would be the

added kingdom which would either

0:07:580:08:00

first place to live the sense of, we

don't want you here. They thought it

0:08:000:08:07

would be France. It is here. It is

what is shocking people because to

0:08:070:08:11

the average American, the British

are TE and sympathy, so this is

0:08:110:08:18

incredibly shocking to people that

wonder does not -- London does not

0:08:180:08:21

want him here.

Should our dislike

for him overwhelm our relationship

0:08:210:08:29

with him?

It is nothing to do with

us. This is my argument with the

0:08:290:08:35

person who bought this up. If

British diplomacy is the world and

0:08:350:08:40

this man's women, that is something

that we should know about, we should

0:08:400:08:45

not know about is the country. And

at the same time, that is what

0:08:450:08:51

diplomats are supposed to do. They

should go in there and sort this

0:08:510:08:54

out.

Still, the state visit

invitation has been even, it has

0:08:540:08:59

been accepted, it is still on the

table, but there is no weight.

If he

0:08:590:09:05

was to come, Her Majesty has invited

him, he has accepted, he can come.

0:09:050:09:17

He knows what is coming. Let's move

on to the Telegraph, an interview

0:09:170:09:22

with a new chairman of the party. He

is saying that the Tories are too

0:09:220:09:28

shy to fight the left online. After

the general election which didn't go

0:09:280:09:33

well for the Tories, they lost their

majority, it was seen that that call

0:09:330:09:36

banisters were far more deft way

came to social media.

I don't know

0:09:360:09:46

if it is everything to do with age,

I think it is a willingness to

0:09:460:09:51

embrace it.

It does have everything

to do with age and I say this as

0:09:510:09:57

someone in the demographic of the

Tories, that you have to understand

0:09:570:10:01

how it works, you have to get in

there and you have to swim with it.

0:10:010:10:04

When you are a younger person, they

are adept at knowing how to do that.

0:10:040:10:09

The average age of the Conservative

Party would not give any indication

0:10:090:10:13

that they would know how to

manoeuvre lives. Brandon Lewis me

0:10:130:10:17

know how to manoeuvre himself

personally but the party as a whole

0:10:170:10:20

doesn't know how to make his work

and it is obvious because I watched

0:10:200:10:24

the Tories bleed, and they ain't got

it.

But I think Brandon Lewis is a

0:10:240:10:31

man that has realised it is a

problem and that is how elections

0:10:310:10:33

are going to be fought in the chart,

and that they need to develop these

0:10:330:10:37

skills.

They need to have an

offer... Someone said to me after

0:10:370:10:45

the election the problem was the

Conservatives came out of that

0:10:450:10:47

inking they are really rubbish at

everything and he said, it wasn't

0:10:470:10:52

great election but it wasn't as bad,

they mustn't throw everything away,

0:10:520:10:56

they still have a chance of

fighting.

It is extraordinary that

0:10:560:11:03

people just need to realise that

these social media platforms will

0:11:030:11:08

not go away. A lot of people think

they would die.

The Conservatives

0:11:080:11:14

have no offer for the people who are

online and who use it. It is as

0:11:140:11:20

simple as that.

Let's stay with the

Telegraph, the flu vaccine is being

0:11:200:11:26

shunned by 3 million people deemed

most at risk. Clearly a problem.

0:11:260:11:31

There was a flu outbreak the moment.

What do people do about this?

Well,

0:11:310:11:37

it is extraordinary that people

don't the flu will happen to them.

0:11:370:11:42

They somehow think they will escape

it working now this is the weekend

0:11:420:11:45

when we suddenly realised that this

could be a problem and I bet on

0:11:450:11:50

Monday, people will be going into

pharmacies and perhaps not been able

0:11:500:11:53

to find the flu vaccine but at least

they will be trying because of the

0:11:530:11:57

number of people having flu.

Isn't

this getting back into a

0:11:570:12:03

generational conversation. Isn't

this a younger demographic? There

0:12:030:12:07

was the whole thing a couple of

years ago about not being

0:12:070:12:09

vaccinated. A lot of younger people

are not doing it.

They do it in

0:12:090:12:16

schools, interestingly.

But there is

another group of women who aren't

0:12:160:12:21

getting vaccinated anymore so it

might be part of that.

What I think

0:12:210:12:24

is interesting is usually any

discussions about the free vaccine

0:12:240:12:29

is focusing on the elderly but they

are talking about young people.

0:12:290:12:33

People I know who have had the flu

worst of the younger people, maybe

0:12:330:12:37

they haven't had previous clues.

In

America, there was a big anti-Vac

0:12:370:12:44

movement.

Let's move on to the

Sunday Times. The parole board

0:12:440:12:52

deciding that John Worboys should be

released after fewer than ten years

0:12:520:12:58

in prison. The new Justice Minister

when he took over last week, is now

0:12:580:13:04

suggesting there may be grounds to

try and challenge that. He is saying

0:13:040:13:07

he would only do it if there was a

reasonable chance of success but it

0:13:070:13:11

is an incredible boring.

An

extraordinary lawyer. A lawyer in

0:13:110:13:19

this job is immediately asserting

himself and thinking, right, we need

0:13:190:13:21

to short -- sort this situation.

There was controversy over the

0:13:210:13:27

secrecy and the decision to allow

Warboys out. It looks, bowling, he

0:13:270:13:35

is obviously taken the right

soundings, and he is going to try

0:13:350:13:39

and fight this decision. If that is

the way the parole board makes its

0:13:390:13:46

decisions, that needs to be changed.

They are independent though.

0:13:460:13:51

Exactly. That is very important. The

good news is with got a lawyer in

0:13:510:13:55

justice. He has obviously seen a

loophole, he has obviously seen

0:13:550:14:00

something because you don't go in

there as you think you can win it so

0:14:000:14:05

he has seen something and he might

be able to save these victims from

0:14:050:14:09

this man and it is possible to.

Some

people are saying the CPS should

0:14:090:14:15

actually bring in further

prosecutions against him.

Because he

0:14:150:14:20

is a lawyer, he will see if it is

possible to do that.

We are reminded

0:14:200:14:25

in this piece about how his victims

heard that he would be out and about

0:14:250:14:29

in London and they do not feel safe.

Horrible. It is important that we

0:14:290:14:34

have that visitors over the side for

the legal profession. We need to

0:14:340:14:39

make sure the law is followed

completely and it there is a

0:14:390:14:42

loophole that the Secretary of State

can see, because these are lawyer,

0:14:420:14:46

then remind have a good result.

Two

more quick stories in the Sunday

0:14:460:14:50

Times. Try January all year. People

buy like the side -- sign of that.

0:14:500:15:01

And it is going to be Veganuary as

well. The government are going to

0:15:010:15:09

try and post calorie caps on fast

food restaurants so these massive

0:15:090:15:13

calorie laden dishes that the

British will enjoy, there will be a

0:15:130:15:18

big sign on them saying this is 1800

calories, best not to eat it.

Not a

0:15:180:15:23

bad idea.

Mr Trump may enjoy this

dish but perhaps it is not the best

0:15:230:15:30

wing for you.

But a bad idea. It is

the sort of nanny state thing.

If we

0:15:300:15:37

are in a situation where... I live

in Soho and I see people in their

0:15:370:15:43

20s eating in McDonald's but when

you get to be faulty, it is not a

0:15:430:15:47

good thing and it puts a strain on

the HS cos we are in an obesity

0:15:470:15:51

epidemic.

These four guys have not

been eating. They have been burning

0:15:510:15:58

off a lot of calories, breaking the

wreck of four rowing across the

0:15:580:16:01

Atlantic.

Extraordinary. The strain

on relationships. There are four of

0:16:010:16:08

you, you've really got to get on to

keep on rowing across the Atlantic

0:16:080:16:12

so you can't let any kind of thrift

or anything arrive in the racial

0:16:120:16:17

ship. And they look like people

that, the way the government would

0:16:170:16:22

like us all to look.

Their hearts

must be in great shape.

0:16:220:16:29

in great shape.

0:16:290:16:30

That's it for the papers this hour.

0:16:300:16:32

Thank you, Bonnie and Anne.

0:16:320:16:33

You'll both be back at 11.30pm

for another look at the stories

0:16:330:16:36

making the news tomorrow.

0:16:360:16:37

Coming up next, it is Meet The

Author.

0:16:370:16:43
