Paris is on high alert for flooding.
Water levels are continuing to rise
along the River Seine,
following some of the heaviest
rain for a century.
Hello, and welcome to our look ahead
to what the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow.
With me are Nigel Nelson,
who's the political editor
of the Sunday Mirror
and Sunday People,
and the journalist and
broadcaster, Penny Smith.
Again, it is lovely to have you
The Sunday Times says Meghan Markle
plans to make a speech
at her wedding.
Donald Trump has criticised
Theresa May, according to the Mail
on Sunday, who say the US President
thinks the PM's approach to Brexit
hasn't been "tough enough."
The Independent on Sunday leads
with a dramatic picture of the bomb
in Kabul which has killed at least
95 people and injured many more.
The Telegraph says a Cabinet source
is warning of Brexit betrayal,
as civil servants backing remain
are handling the terms of departure
from the EU.
A crackdown on rogue
parking companies is
the Express's main story.
And the Observer leads with claims
that Academy schools are facing
a cash crisis.
So, a real variety of stories
on the front of the Sunday papers,
as there often is, though Brexit
is appears in some way,
shape, or form on several of them.
The Observer. Top academy schools
A major trust are born
in of -- warning of overpay. The
thing is, what this says to me is
that, we keep on talking about
Brexit, I know you have talked about
it so much people slump forward, and
others say we need to leave right
now. The government has its
headlights on and Brexit so much,
all the other things we keep on
hearing about are being put on the
backburner, not being sorted out.
This is one of them. When they talk
about sounding the alarm, it is
alarming. We are talking about
children coming in through it into a
Brexit world. Of course, they need
to be educated and they need staff.
As a parent, I know we get rather
tetchy when we get messages via
parent mail and what have you saying
you need to pay for this and that
and the other.
The pens and tbe

People should not have
to do that. We have a problem in
every single sector. This is the
tail-end of austerity. Finally,
everyone is saying...
Is it the
tail-end of austerity?
It is in the
sense we are coming out of it. This
is what is left over from the
austerity imposed from 2010. So,
schools have been underfunded. That
gets progressively worse. Academy
schools come up and then you have
Social care... Yes.
Police, the seventh year of ten
years of austerity again. It is all
coming home to roost.
You are not
convinced it is over.
No. It would
be nice. Many would want to see that
light at the end of the tunnel. But
petrol is going up...
They want to
make it a way of life. What I am
saying is that the wages cap has
been lifted. There are signs of
things happening. Not because they
wanted it, though.
The Observer. A
revolt is possible against Theresa
A health warning, we have just
had a reshuffle. Ministers not
promoted or moved where they want
are grumbling. The Observer is
saying she has three months to get
her act together or she would be
kicked out, or an attemped oust.
Many places like London and
Birmingham will go to the polls. If
she does not do well, they are
talking about getting rid of her.
Personally, I do not think it will
happen to be every Tory MP knows if
you risk that, you risk an election.
The supporters of the loser will try
to undermine the one winner, which
could lead to a Corbyn PM.

interesting is the paper says the
alternatives would be the utter
destruction of the Tory Party.
sure they will hold back. A lovely
picture. The first Danish person to
win a Grand Slam.
The image of her
face is wonderful. The Mail. Staying
on your favourite subject. Brexit!
Donald Trump says I would have done
It is an interview
with Piers Morgan. He roamed over
various conversations, saying "May
is not tough on the EU, they are not
what they are cracked up to be, I'd
be tougher." How can we tell? Unless
we enter a parallel universe. I
would have said, "Right, you lot, I
will build a sea wall." And the
interesting thing is that in this he
seems to imply he has been invited
to visit Britain twice by Theresa
May. No one has any knowledge of
this. Number 10 says "Hmm, I don't
think so. Have we?" It is quite
The reception in

Macron is a great guy. His wife is
fantastic. I like them a lot. We had
dinner at the top of the Eiffel
Tower. He said everything was

thing. As if it is not enough to get

All right. Look, we'll turn to the
Telegraph, and it's Brexit again!
will just sit here for a minute.
Yes, umm, what they are reporting is
that a number of senior officials in
Theresa May's government, so, the
civil servants, they want a soft
Brexit and are pushing us in that
direction. She is going along with
it. Be talked about Philip Hammond
at Davos talking about a modest
difference between Britain after
Brexit with Europe. People are
blaming the Cabinet Secretary. And
Ali problems, the Chief Expert, it
depends on if you think it is a
betrayal like the Telegraph, or a
sensitive way forward. We do not
know what the government wants with
Brexit. Do they want a soft-hard,
something in the middle?
So, it is
like Mentos, hard on the outside...
Try boiled eggs.
It must be
frustrating that every detail of
this is splashed. Many people say
just let them get on with it.

people are bored with it because so
little seems to be happening.
Week, they have a Boring But
Important Section. You look down it
and you realise all you have been
thinking about is what you will have
Very quickly, council tax
bills to rise. Not something you
want to see on a Sunday morning.
They will go up, without a shadow of
a doubt. The government says they
are taking off the cap. Pretty much
all councils... I cannot think of a
council that has said we are having
a great time, we do not need money.
They are strapped for cash and want
more, up to £80.
The Express. You
must be happy with this story. If it
works! It sounds pretty easy. If you
do something wrong, you do not have
access to the database, but it is
not that easy.
I would be curious to
see how they get around this. It is
a plan by Sajid Javid, the
secretary, for private companies to
have a new code of practice to abide
by. If they do not what he will do
is cut off the right to go to DVLA
to get the name and addresses to get
tickets. They will not have money
coming in. How do you get around
that? Even if you decided you will
not have access to DVLA, there will
be no other way of finding out what
your personal details are.
Excuse me. Except on your car if
there is a bill on it, you have to
pay this, then...
A lot of people...
Many people will say... And it
says after it, I am sure it does...
I don't know. Exactly. Many people
would still pay, without, actually,
the fact they have your address.
they have it in black and white...
The advice of a gifted the
department is, don't think of it as
a parking ticket, think of it as an
invoice. And if you do not feel the
invoice is fair, do not pay.

with this. A lot of people do not

they are scared.
Great if it works

Who will write the speech and what
will be XP?
Meghan Markle will speak
at a royal wedding and she will
change the script and do what she
wants and there may even be some
jokes and I say more power to her.
What a laugh. I think sometimes
weddings can be a little bit dull,
can't they? It will be fun.
the trucks will get out, I think we
will hear about those.
And the point
is her dad is very private sweating
she may step up as head of the
family and speak.
All represents the
family. And also, why not?
Absolutely. Cannot wait. A nice
change for the Royal family. But the
papers. Thanks to Nigel and Penny.
