Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow.
With me are Anne Ashworth,

and the author, playwright

Tomorrow's front pages.
The Sunday Times, which reports
that the new Justice Secretary
is preparing to intervene to halt
the release of the so-called black
cab rapist, John Worboys.

The Observer reports claims
by Nigel Farage that pro-Europeans
could overturn the result
of the Brexit referendum
and that the Leave side
has stopped fighting.
And the Sunday Express claims
economists are warning the EU that
failing to reach a Brexit deal
with Britain could
cost it £500 billion.
So, let's begin.
We are going to start this evening

is a slight shift, if the question

ridiculous. And I am a passionate
Remainer. I think it would be
insulting to ask people this

unsettled. So, he is aware through
the arc and movement of things but I
wouldn't trust it.
I wonder if he is
talking about the shape of the deal
emerging. Talk of a transition
period, for example, where people
won't notice much of a difference,
he worries it is all being watered
down and their white beard clean
He wants a divorce in which

not quite how it unfolds. And he's
also possibly seeing that the trade
deals that people were so confident
about may not be so readily
available. However, I do always
wonder why so much attention is paid
to a man who has not how whatsoever.
Because he is click bait. He's a

politicians are not very

means they are doing their work. But

-- right, this is about the
limelight. But he hasn't given us
any idea about what talking about.
But that isn't important. The end
instatement is what is important. He
is saying it is a top whistle to his
face, he is saying, put me in

He knows what is coming. Let's move
on to the Telegraph, an interview
with a new chairman of the party. He
is saying that the Tories are too

to do with age and I say this as
someone in the demographic of the
Tories, that you have to understand
how it works, you have to get in

are adept at knowing how to do that.

Let's stay with the
Telegraph, the flu vaccine is being
shunned by 3 million people deemed
most at risk. Clearly a problem.

this getting back into a
generational conversation. Isn't
this a younger demographic? There
was the whole thing a couple of
years ago about not being
vaccinated. A lot of younger people
are not doing it.
They do it in
But there is
another group of women who aren't
getting vaccinated anymore so it
might be part of that.
What I think
is interesting is usually any
discussions about the free vaccine
is focusing on the elderly but they
are talking about young people.

this job is immediately asserting
himself and thinking, right, we need
to short -- sort this situation.
There was controversy over the
secrecy and the decision to allow
Warboys out. It looks, bowling, he
is obviously taken the right
soundings, and he is going to try
and fight this decision. If that is
the way the parole board makes its
decisions, that needs to be changed.
They are independent though.
Exactly. That is very important. The
good news is with got a lawyer in

We are reminded
in this piece about how his victims

Horrible. It is important that we
