Hello.

0:00:080:00:09

This is BBC News

with Martine Croxall.

0:00:090:00:11

We'll be taking a look at tomorrow

morning's papers in a moment -

0:00:110:00:14

first the headlines.

0:00:140:00:15

The Prime Minister has come under

new pressure from her backbenchers

0:00:150:00:18

over Brexit negotiations -

amid reports of a possible

0:00:180:00:20

leadership contest.

0:00:200:00:24

A 28-year-old man has been charged

with causing death by dangerous

0:00:240:00:27

driving after a crash that killed

three teenagers in west London.

0:00:270:00:32

The leader of Russia's main

opposition party has been released

0:00:320:00:35

after he was arrested at a rally

calling for a boycott

0:00:350:00:38

of the presidential elections.

0:00:380:00:41

And in Melbourne, Roger Federer has

won his sixth Australian Open

0:00:410:00:45

with a victory over Marin Cilic -

joining a select group of champions

0:00:450:00:48

to have won 20 Grand Slams.

0:00:480:00:52

And tributes to the father

of flatpack furniture -

0:00:520:00:55

Ingvar Kamprad, who founded Ikea,

has died at the age of 91.

0:00:550:01:02

You know you have been doing the

papers too long when you start

0:01:200:01:23

dancing to that music! With us are

broadcaster Natalie Haynes and Rob

0:01:230:01:32

Merrick the deputy political editor

of the Independent. Good evening. A

0:01:320:01:39

lot of the front pages RM. -- are

in.

0:01:390:01:46

Tomorrow's front pages, starting

with The Financial Times, which

0:01:460:01:48

reports that the Brexit negotiations

could hit choppy waters over the

0:01:480:01:51

UK's demand to vet new EU laws

during the transition period.

0:01:510:01:53

The i has an investigation

into the extent of knife

0:01:530:01:56

crime in British schools.

0:01:560:01:57

Theresa May's hold on power

is under threat according

0:01:570:01:59

to The Metro amid speculation

of a leadership contest.

0:01:590:02:01

"Swivel-eyed" - that's how one

senior minister has described

0:02:010:02:03

Brexiteers who opposed the EU

divorce bill - the Telegraph claims.

0:02:030:02:10

And The Daily Mirror details

the number of babies it says die

0:02:100:02:13

in the UK as a result

of sleeping with their parents.

0:02:130:02:21

The Guardian reports that hundreds

of thousands of young adults are

0:02:210:02:25

renting properties which are deemed

hazardous. In mixed bag of stories

0:02:250:02:29

there. Inevitably, Brexit takes pole

position in several of the papers.

0:02:290:02:35

It will thrill us all. A battle over

it you lob puts Brexit progress at

0:02:350:02:42

risk is where we will start with the

Financial Times -- a battle over it

0:02:420:02:49

you lob puts Brexit at risk. What

will happen to the new laws which

0:02:490:02:54

the rest of the EU puts out? Are we

meant to take notice?

And papers are

0:02:540:03:00

full of the trouble that Theresa May

has for the next stage of the

0:03:000:03:05

negotiations and you can say at

least she got through phase one,

0:03:050:03:09

that is in the bag, but the story

says it is not. Sufficient progress

0:03:090:03:13

means the full details have to be

nailed down and that is what is

0:03:130:03:17

happening at the moment and this is

a further obstacle. One of the key

0:03:170:03:21

issues is the European Court of

Justice. It is a red rag to the ball

0:03:210:03:29

to the Tory Brexiteers. Robin is a

red line for the EU is during the

0:03:290:03:35

transition period we will abide by

ECJ rulings and also new laws which

0:03:350:03:42

might be made by the ECJ and EU and

overseen by the EU. Written is

0:03:420:03:52

arguing they want some sort of

halfway house measure where Britain

0:03:520:03:55

would look at the new laws on the

grid ECJ rulings itself and decide

0:03:550:03:59

whether they would conflict with our

priority is bit the EU will not

0:03:590:04:04

accept that because it is a halfway

house. It is an illustration of the

0:04:040:04:08

bind the Prime Minister is still in

as she tries to face of the

0:04:080:04:12

Brexiteers on her party who want to

be tougher with the EU, but at the

0:04:120:04:16

same time make progress in the

negotiations, and it is not clear

0:04:160:04:20

how she squares that circle.

Some

MPs want to regard it as

0:04:200:04:25

implementation rather than

transition which could have

0:04:250:04:28

different connotations but it does

not get them off the hook?

It does

0:04:280:04:32

not really. The nice thing as it has

the characteristics that it makes

0:04:320:04:37

someone's heart sink when they talk

about it or think about it or even

0:04:370:04:41

just have their eye caught by a

headline across a crowded room. We

0:04:410:04:46

are spending so much time debating

things which are fairly minor while

0:04:460:04:51

ignoring things which are quite big.

Whether not we will abide by laws

0:04:510:04:53

for what ever will be the

transitional period is quite a lot

0:04:530:04:58

less important about whether people

who are currently British but live

0:04:580:05:01

in Spain, or from Spain and

currently lives in Nottingham, where

0:05:010:05:05

they are going to live. It is a lot

less important than that but that is

0:05:050:05:09

what we will get caught up on for

months at a time.

Shows how

0:05:090:05:14

fiendishly complicated is to get the

framework in place. The metro is

0:05:140:05:19

also looking at Brexit and Mrs May's

position. Keep calm and hurry up. An

0:05:190:05:25

effort to soothe MPs fail as May is

branded a daughter 's.

Apparently

0:05:250:05:31

that is not a compliment.

Even

though they are slow and steady and

0:05:310:05:37

win the race.

In the ancient world

they were used to make lyres. But

0:05:370:05:47

they were boiled. Comparing one to

Theresa May seems like it is not the

0:05:470:05:52

best way.

The point is they want to

get a move on. I know you were

0:05:520:05:58

desperate to get us away from

Brexit!

I like tortoise is, I do not

0:05:580:06:02

know what you want from me!

You are

doing OK. We will call you again.

0:06:020:06:08

This shows that when we talk about

Brexit as being the big problem that

0:06:080:06:13

the Prime Minister has got, there

are one group of Tory MPs who think

0:06:130:06:16

she's hopeless and failing but there

is another group who think she is

0:06:160:06:22

generally inept on every subject and

want to come up with some policies

0:06:220:06:27

which will attract attention and

support and be ambitious. What

0:06:270:06:31

strikes me is there is another story

about a tortoise in the news, one

0:06:310:06:35

which escaped six months ago in

Oxfordshire and it has been reunited

0:06:350:06:39

with its family. In six months it

has undergone 320 metres but for a

0:06:390:06:44

lot of Tory MPs, that tortoise is

making more progress than the Prime

0:06:440:06:49

Minister.

Nicely brought back! Break

quickly, the Daily Telegraph,

0:06:490:06:56

Minister says Brexiteers opposed to

EU bill are swivel. We have heard

0:06:560:07:00

that expression before.

Yes, the

insult of choice for the left of the

0:07:000:07:08

Tory party -- swivel-eyed loons it

was once said by a Cameron Ed. Here

0:07:080:07:14

comes this phrase back from a little

known minister called Claire Perry.

0:07:140:07:19

She has previously called Brexit

supporters jihadists.

This is quite

0:07:190:07:26

a climb-down!

What this story shows

is how much bitterness there is in

0:07:260:07:30

the Tory party, one wing against

another. But someone can use this

0:07:300:07:35

phrase about the Leave about some

else in the same party. How does

0:07:350:07:40

Theresa May get out of that?

We will

stay with the Telegraph. Up to half

0:07:400:07:46

of children obese in parts of the

UK.

Yes, it is an enormously

0:07:460:07:52

depressing story. The numbers are

horrifying, even in the richest

0:07:520:07:57

wards we are looking at 25%. 44% of

ten and 11-year-olds in Brent, north

0:07:570:08:06

London, are rabies or overweight.

The number is almost half that in

0:08:060:08:13

rematch and upon Thames. The five

miles away -- Richmond-upon-Thames.

0:08:130:08:22

Other areas with high levels of

excess weight, Barking and Dagenham,

0:08:220:08:28

Wolverhampton and Sandwell. In other

words, the correlation between

0:08:280:08:33

obesity and poverty is very high.

That does not tell us anything we

0:08:330:08:36

don't already know. The bit we

should be worrying about is where

0:08:360:08:40

four fifths of obese children can

remain a beast as adults and cut

0:08:400:08:46

life expectancy by ten years. --

remain a beast. Being overweight can

0:08:460:08:51

cost you ten years of your life.

They seem to be getting worse the

0:08:510:08:56

numbers.

The problem of obesity is

getting worse and the key thing is

0:08:560:09:01

the link with poverty. Recently,

some figures came out looking at the

0:09:010:09:09

extent of child poverty by local

authority. There were some that were

0:09:090:09:13

up at almost 50% for the proportion

of children growing up in poverty.

0:09:130:09:17

You would imagine that this match is

throw closely what we are seeing

0:09:170:09:22

here.

Let's look at the FT. The

father of the flatpack, IKEA founder

0:09:220:09:29

and Swedish on to know dies at the

age of 91. This is Ingvar Kamprad

0:09:290:09:34

who gave his initials to the company

and the part of the country he came

0:09:340:09:38

from. He has revolutionised

furniture assembly and furniture

0:09:380:09:46

manufacturer.

Before he recently

lived and died, we spent no time

0:09:460:09:54

crying and swearing at leftover nuts

and bolts. Do you want me to embrace

0:09:540:10:00

him? I cannot do it, I can't bear

building flatpack furniture.

They

0:10:000:10:05

will come and do it now.

Then there

will be someone I don't know in my

0:10:050:10:11

flat.

It will stop you crying.

I

will be crying for a different

0:10:110:10:16

reason.

And you will have something

to sit on when they have gone.

There

0:10:160:10:24

was a joke that was made which was

in poor taste. It is a classic rags

0:10:240:10:30

to riches story. He founded IT when

he was 17 selling postcards and

0:10:300:10:35

pencils and he went on to sales of

38 billion and employing thousands

0:10:350:10:42

of workers.

Slightly glossed over

the bit where he recruited members

0:10:420:10:46

for the Swedish Nazi party.

By

September 1945 most people had seen

0:10:460:10:54

the error of his ways.

He repudiated

it. Before you leave, I have gotten

0:10:540:11:03

Allen key, I would like you to check

the legs on the desk. The

0:11:030:11:10

Independent is where we are going

next. Roger Federer, the fairy tale

0:11:100:11:15

continues, it says. 36-year-old.

That looks so and appealing to me.

0:11:150:11:23

It is quite old for a professional

sports person though. It was such a

0:11:230:11:28

great match. I got up really early

to run before watching the tennis

0:11:280:11:32

because I love Roger Federer so

much. I have been troubled since he

0:11:320:11:38

won at Wimbledon last year, because

I find the number 19 troubling so I

0:11:380:11:41

really wanted him to get to 20!

It

is not one of your things, is it?

0:11:410:11:47

You struggle with prime numbers. We

have talked about this before. I

0:11:470:11:53

tried to forget.

Mainly I like the

bit where he was in floods of tears.

0:11:530:11:59

Poor Marin Cilic who has been beaten

us to console him.

Everyone is

0:11:590:12:04

saying, can he do it? Can he hold it

together? No, he bursts into tears!

0:12:040:12:10

It means so much to him still. What

has been rather nice to point out is

0:12:100:12:16

while he is the first man to reach

this milestone, he is not the first

0:12:160:12:22

person.

Certainly isn't.

Serena

Williams, Steffi Graf, Margaret

0:12:220:12:26

Court.

Three of them.

Serena

Williams has the most. I like tennis

0:12:260:12:40

too much.

Serena Williams is showing

the same longevity with the ability

0:12:400:12:45

to win it.

How are we doing for

time? I am engrossed in what we are

0:12:450:12:51

talking about and not listening to

what is being said in my ear. I can

0:12:510:12:56

also hear myself which is slightly

discombobulated.

You were being

0:12:560:13:04

haunted by headlines which were

hovering.

I can see things which you

0:13:040:13:08

cannot see. Let's go back to the

Daily Telegraph. I feel slightly

0:13:080:13:14

embarrassed doing this story. Put

your towel on a sun lounge before

0:13:140:13:18

you even go on holiday. How can you

do that?

You can do it because you

0:13:180:13:25

can now book it. When you book your

holiday you can book your sun lounge

0:13:250:13:30

and make sure they are not all taken

when you get there. The joke comes

0:13:300:13:37

in paragraph three where it says the

service has been available to

0:13:370:13:43

Germans for three years. So when you

come to bucket it may already be

0:13:430:13:47

booked. I suppose the people who

booked them use them. The problem is

0:13:470:13:51

when people do not use them.

How

much does this service cost?

It is

0:13:510:13:59

about 25 euros.

A day or post a?

I

don't know. Look how pale skinned I

0:13:590:14:05

am, I do not sit in the sun. I could

go somewhere cold and mountainous.

0:14:050:14:15

25 for the lot I think.

People do

complain a lot about this, not

0:14:150:14:18

having enough access to some

loungers. You have to get up very

0:14:180:14:21

early.

It does not increase the

number of some loungers, does it?

I

0:14:210:14:28

do not want to use the phrase

rearranging deck chairs on the

0:14:280:14:32

Titanic but we are surely thinking

it. There is only a limited number.

0:14:320:14:38

People will be crying sitting on the

ground.

SPEAKS GERMAN. That is what

0:14:380:14:51

you would say in German. You should

ask in the language of the country

0:14:510:14:55

you are visiting. That is it for the

Papers now.

0:14:550:15:02

Don't forget you can see the front

pages of the papers online

0:15:020:15:05

on the BBC News website.

0:15:050:15:06

It's all there for you -

7 days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers -

0:15:060:15:09

and if you miss the programme any

evening you can watch it

0:15:090:15:12

later on BBC iPlayer.

0:15:120:15:13

We will be back at 11:30pm and do it

again. Natalie and Rob, thank you

0:15:130:15:20

very much.
