Paris is on high alert for flooding.

0:00:000:00:00

Water levels are continuing to rise

along the River Seine,

0:00:000:00:03

following some of the heaviest

rain for a century.

0:00:030:00:10

Hello, and welcome to our look ahead

to what the papers will be

0:00:180:00:21

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:210:00:24

With me are Nigel Nelson,

who's the political editor

0:00:240:00:27

of the Sunday Mirror

and Sunday People,

0:00:270:00:29

and the journalist and

broadcaster, Penny Smith.

0:00:290:00:35

Again, it is lovely to have you

both.

0:00:350:00:37

The Sunday Times says Meghan Markle

plans to make a speech

0:00:370:00:40

at her wedding.

0:00:400:00:46

Donald Trump has criticised

Theresa May, according to the Mail

0:00:460:00:49

on Sunday, who say the US President

thinks the PM's approach to Brexit

0:00:490:00:52

hasn't been "tough enough."

0:00:520:01:00

The Independent on Sunday leads

with a dramatic picture of the bomb

0:01:000:01:03

in Kabul which has killed at least

95 people and injured many more.

0:01:030:01:07

The Telegraph says a Cabinet source

is warning of Brexit betrayal,

0:01:070:01:10

as civil servants backing remain

are handling the terms of departure

0:01:100:01:13

from the EU.

0:01:130:01:15

A crackdown on rogue

parking companies is

0:01:150:01:17

the Express's main story.

0:01:170:01:18

And the Observer leads with claims

that Academy schools are facing

0:01:180:01:21

a cash crisis.

0:01:210:01:30

So, a real variety of stories

on the front of the Sunday papers,

0:01:300:01:33

as there often is, though Brexit

is appears in some way,

0:01:330:01:36

shape, or form on several of them.

0:01:360:01:42

The Observer. Top academy schools

sound alarms.

A major trust are born

0:01:420:01:52

in of -- warning of overpay. The

thing is, what this says to me is

0:01:520:02:05

that, we keep on talking about

Brexit, I know you have talked about

0:02:050:02:10

it so much people slump forward, and

others say we need to leave right

0:02:100:02:22

now. The government has its

headlights on and Brexit so much,

0:02:220:02:33

all the other things we keep on

hearing about are being put on the

0:02:330:02:37

backburner, not being sorted out.

This is one of them. When they talk

0:02:370:02:40

about sounding the alarm, it is

alarming. We are talking about

0:02:400:02:43

children coming in through it into a

Brexit world. Of course, they need

0:02:430:02:47

to be educated and they need staff.

As a parent, I know we get rather

0:02:470:03:04

tetchy when we get messages via

parent mail and what have you saying

0:03:040:03:07

you need to pay for this and that

and the other.

The pens and tbe

0:03:070:03:12

books.

You should not have to.

You

want to do everything for your

0:03:120:03:15

child, but...

People should not have

to do that. We have a problem in

0:03:150:03:25

every single sector. This is the

tail-end of austerity. Finally,

0:03:250:03:28

everyone is saying...

Is it the

tail-end of austerity?

It is in the

0:03:280:03:35

sense we are coming out of it. This

is what is left over from the

0:03:350:03:43

austerity imposed from 2010. So,

schools have been underfunded. That

0:03:430:03:47

gets progressively worse. Academy

schools come up and then you have

0:03:470:03:51

police funding.

Social care... Yes.

Police, the seventh year of ten

0:03:510:04:08

years of austerity again. It is all

coming home to roost.

You are not

0:04:080:04:12

convinced it is over.

No. It would

be nice. Many would want to see that

0:04:120:04:29

light at the end of the tunnel. But

petrol is going up...

They want to

0:04:290:04:33

make it a way of life. What I am

saying is that the wages cap has

0:04:330:04:48

been lifted. There are signs of

things happening. Not because they

0:04:480:04:51

wanted it, though.

The Observer. A

revolt is possible against Theresa

0:04:510:04:54

May.

A health warning, we have just

had a reshuffle. Ministers not

0:04:540:05:07

promoted or moved where they want

are grumbling. The Observer is

0:05:070:05:14

saying she has three months to get

her act together or she would be

0:05:140:05:26

kicked out, or an attemped oust.

Many places like London and

0:05:260:05:29

Birmingham will go to the polls. If

she does not do well, they are

0:05:290:05:33

talking about getting rid of her.

Personally, I do not think it will

0:05:330:05:36

happen to be every Tory MP knows if

you risk that, you risk an election.

0:05:360:05:44

The supporters of the loser will try

to undermine the one winner, which

0:05:440:05:55

could lead to a Corbyn PM.

So...

May

will not go in May.

What is

0:05:550:05:59

interesting is the paper says the

alternatives would be the utter

0:05:590:06:03

destruction of the Tory Party.

I am

sure they will hold back. A lovely

0:06:030:06:13

picture. The first Danish person to

win a Grand Slam.

The image of her

0:06:130:06:18

face is wonderful. The Mail. Staying

on your favourite subject. Brexit!

0:06:180:06:25

Donald Trump says I would have done

this differently.

It is an interview

0:06:250:06:30

with Piers Morgan. He roamed over

various conversations, saying "May

0:06:300:06:54

is not tough on the EU, they are not

what they are cracked up to be, I'd

0:06:540:06:58

be tougher." How can we tell? Unless

we enter a parallel universe. I

0:06:580:07:02

would have said, "Right, you lot, I

will build a sea wall." And the

0:07:020:07:08

interesting thing is that in this he

seems to imply he has been invited

0:07:080:07:12

to visit Britain twice by Theresa

May. No one has any knowledge of

0:07:120:07:15

this. Number 10 says "Hmm, I don't

think so. Have we?" It is quite

0:07:150:07:24

interesting.

The reception in

France.

He says he thinks Emmanuel

0:07:240:07:31

Macron is a great guy. His wife is

fantastic. I like them a lot. We had

0:07:310:07:38

dinner at the top of the Eiffel

Tower. He said everything was

0:07:380:07:42

closed!

That is the most exciting

thing. As if it is not enough to get

0:07:420:07:47

the police... Presumably, well...

All right. Look, we'll turn to the

0:07:470:08:01

Telegraph, and it's Brexit again!

I

will just sit here for a minute.

0:08:010:08:04

Yes, umm, what they are reporting is

that a number of senior officials in

0:08:040:08:09

Theresa May's government, so, the

civil servants, they want a soft

0:08:090:08:16

Brexit and are pushing us in that

direction. She is going along with

0:08:160:08:20

it. Be talked about Philip Hammond

at Davos talking about a modest

0:08:200:08:24

difference between Britain after

Brexit with Europe. People are

0:08:240:08:32

blaming the Cabinet Secretary. And

Ali problems, the Chief Expert, it

0:08:320:08:54

depends on if you think it is a

betrayal like the Telegraph, or a

0:08:540:08:58

sensitive way forward. We do not

know what the government wants with

0:08:580:09:01

Brexit. Do they want a soft-hard,

something in the middle?

So, it is

0:09:010:09:14

like Mentos, hard on the outside...

Try boiled eggs.

It must be

0:09:140:09:22

frustrating that every detail of

this is splashed. Many people say

0:09:220:09:28

just let them get on with it.

Up to

a point, I understand that. Many

0:09:280:09:35

people are bored with it because so

little seems to be happening.

In The

0:09:350:09:50

Week, they have a Boring But

Important Section. You look down it

0:09:500:09:54

and you realise all you have been

thinking about is what you will have

0:09:540:10:00

for lunch.

Very quickly, council tax

bills to rise. Not something you

0:10:000:10:06

want to see on a Sunday morning.

They will go up, without a shadow of

0:10:060:10:11

a doubt. The government says they

are taking off the cap. Pretty much

0:10:110:10:18

all councils... I cannot think of a

council that has said we are having

0:10:180:10:24

a great time, we do not need money.

They are strapped for cash and want

0:10:240:10:34

more, up to £80.

The Express. You

must be happy with this story. If it

0:10:340:10:38

works! It sounds pretty easy. If you

do something wrong, you do not have

0:10:380:10:45

access to the database, but it is

not that easy.

I would be curious to

0:10:450:10:52

see how they get around this. It is

a plan by Sajid Javid, the

0:10:520:10:58

secretary, for private companies to

have a new code of practice to abide

0:10:580:11:03

by. If they do not what he will do

is cut off the right to go to DVLA

0:11:030:11:12

to get the name and addresses to get

tickets. They will not have money

0:11:120:11:16

coming in. How do you get around

that? Even if you decided you will

0:11:160:11:21

not have access to DVLA, there will

be no other way of finding out what

0:11:210:11:31

your personal details are.

Except...

Excuse me. Except on your car if

0:11:310:11:38

there is a bill on it, you have to

pay this, then...

A lot of people...

0:11:380:11:42

Yeah.

Many people will say... And it

says after it, I am sure it does...

0:11:420:11:46

I don't know. Exactly. Many people

would still pay, without, actually,

0:11:460:11:51

the fact they have your address.

If

they have it in black and white...

0:11:510:11:58

The advice of a gifted the

department is, don't think of it as

0:11:580:12:03

a parking ticket, think of it as an

invoice. And if you do not feel the

0:12:030:12:07

invoice is fair, do not pay.

You

have to go through the process of

0:12:070:12:11

saying, you know, I do not agree

with this. A lot of people do not

0:12:110:12:15

like the confrontation.

And also,

they are scared.

Great if it works

0:12:150:12:20

so very quickly. I hope it does

work.

0:12:200:12:33

Who will write the speech and what

will be XP?

Meghan Markle will speak

0:12:330:12:35

at a royal wedding and she will

change the script and do what she

0:12:350:12:40

wants and there may even be some

jokes and I say more power to her.

0:12:400:12:44

What a laugh. I think sometimes

weddings can be a little bit dull,

0:12:440:12:47

can't they? It will be fun.

I think

the trucks will get out, I think we

0:12:470:12:56

will hear about those.

And the point

is her dad is very private sweating

0:12:560:13:01

she may step up as head of the

family and speak.

All represents the

0:13:010:13:04

family. And also, why not?

Absolutely. Cannot wait. A nice

0:13:040:13:13

change for the Royal family. But the

papers. Thanks to Nigel and Penny.

0:13:130:13:18

Next, the film review. Have a lovely

night. Cheerio.
