Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the papers will be

0:00:180:00:22

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:220:00:26

One day I am going to record what

goes on during those titles to show

0:00:260:00:30

you.

0:00:300:00:31

With me are broadcaster

and author Natalie Haynes,

0:00:310:00:33

and Rob Merrick, who's the deputy

political editor of the Independent.

0:00:330:00:36

Welcome to you both. Pop it wants to

know why you have such a funny thing

0:00:360:00:43

about prime numbers in a sentence.

They make me feel stressed and

0:00:430:00:47

uncomfortable, I can't help it.

I'm

sorry. You make me feel stressed and

0:00:470:00:52

uncomfortable. No. You don't.

0:00:520:00:56

Tomorrow's front pages,

starting with The Financial Times,

0:00:560:00:58

which reports that the Brexit

negotiations could hit choppy waters

0:00:580:01:02

over the UK's demand to vet new EU

laws during the transition period.

0:01:020:01:04

The i has an investigation

into the extent of knife crime

0:01:040:01:07

in British schools.

0:01:070:01:08

Theresa May's hold on power is under

threat, according to The Metro,

0:01:080:01:11

amid speculation of

a leadership contest.

0:01:110:01:13

'Swivel-eyed' - that's how one

senior minister has described

0:01:130:01:15

Brexiteers who opposed

the EU divorce bill,

0:01:150:01:17

the Telegraph claims.

0:01:170:01:18

The Daily Mirror details the number

of babies it says die in the UK

0:01:180:01:24

as a result of sleeping

with their parents.

0:01:240:01:31

The Guardian reports that hundreds

of thousands of young adults

0:01:310:01:34

are renting properties that

are deemed hazardous.

0:01:340:01:35

The Daily Mail has details

of a study which has found that two

0:01:360:01:39

in three teenagers think TV channels

show too many betting adverts.

0:01:390:01:49

And it's sun loungers on the Sun's

front page with details

0:01:490:01:52

of a new booking system that

could see fewer early morning dashes

0:01:520:01:55

to the pool.

0:01:550:01:57

A range of stories on the front

pages, though inevitably,

0:01:580:02:00

Brexit takes pole position

in several of the papers.

0:02:000:02:07

The Daily Express is where we will

start. The battle to save a full

0:02:070:02:14

Brexit. It was worried?

Theresa May

should be worried. Another day,

0:02:140:02:20

another day of headlines and threats

against the Prime Minister that

0:02:200:02:23

Shinnie StepChange, do something

different, in this case Shinnie is

0:02:230:02:26

to stop selling out on a hard Brexit

-- that she should stop selling out.

0:02:260:02:33

What strikes me about this story,

this issue raising its head now, the

0:02:330:02:38

Brexiteer MPs, as we call them, they

are being particularly vocal. It is

0:02:380:02:44

only four weeks ago that the Prime

Minister returned from the EU

0:02:440:02:47

summit, having struck a deal that

sufficient progress had been made to

0:02:470:02:51

move onto the second part of the

talks. With the exception of a

0:02:510:02:56

couple of voices in the backbench

she was hailed a hero, supposedly

0:02:560:03:00

struck a brilliant deal. To coin a

phrase used by the Prime Minister,

0:03:000:03:06

nothing has changed. The deal hasn't

changed. It seems now the Brexiteer

0:03:060:03:11

MPs have woken up to exactly what

she has signed up to, a much softer

0:03:110:03:15

Brexit than they wanted to

effectively stay within the EU's

0:03:150:03:18

economic structures in a transition

deal for release two years, maybe

0:03:180:03:23

longer, and to offer full alignment

with EU regulations to avoid a hard

0:03:230:03:28

Irish border, long-term. Obviously

they oppose those things. But what

0:03:280:03:32

strikes me as it is the same deal

she signed in December when she was

0:03:320:03:37

hailed a hero. But now she is for

the chop.

It is a fickle old

0:03:370:03:41

business. In the FT, battle

0:03:410:03:43

the chop.

It is a fickle old

business. In the FT, battle over EU

0:03:430:03:46

law puts progress at risk. They will

be busy bringing in new laws.

That

0:03:460:03:52

is one of the things they like

doing. One of the recently Brexit is

0:03:520:03:57

don't like them is how crazy they

for regulation.

Will Britain how to

0:03:570:04:01

observe them during the transition

period?

Enormous quantities of time

0:04:010:04:07

and energy are being squandered on

this when realistically it is a very

0:04:070:04:10

short-term problem that will resolve

itself when the transition period

0:04:100:04:13

comes to an end. Instead of thinking

what is a long-term gain COP --

0:04:130:04:19

game, what are the goals, what will

be achieved, we are squabbling over

0:04:190:04:24

things that will be frou-frou at

most two years. That, by anyone's

0:04:240:04:29

standards, is perverse, I would

suggest.

-- free from. Brexit

0:04:290:04:37

ministers are swivel eyed. This is

Claire Perry, and energy Minister,

0:04:370:04:44

saying that.

She unwisely said it is

in the Conservative MPs WhatsApp

0:04:440:04:51

group.

Not a sentence that I was

expecting anyone to say at.

0:04:510:04:57

Increasingly a good source of

stories were journalists. You would

0:04:570:05:01

have thought a minister would have

been more clever than two make a

0:05:010:05:06

comment to scores of MPs, one of

whom are sure to leak it, and that

0:05:060:05:11

is what has happened. Claire Perry

was a Remainer. She honestly believe

0:05:110:05:14

that clashing out of the EU without

a deal break from the EU will be

0:05:140:05:20

calamitous. That is what she says.

As well is the Daily Telegraph of --

0:05:200:05:28

its headline. The quote is she says

listening to the hard right of the

0:05:280:05:35

Tory Party on Brexit will mean

wrecking the party. That lays bare

0:05:350:05:40

what some of the Conservative Party

think will be the consequence of

0:05:400:05:44

pursuing a hard Brexit.

She goes

further into who she thinks these

0:05:440:05:49

people are.

To be honest, swivel

eyed is pretty much the nicest thing

0:05:490:05:54

she says about them. Some of it is

not printable on the front page. She

0:05:540:06:01

calls them a sell-out trait of the

finishing -- the she thinks should

0:06:010:06:05

be ignored. It is fairly strong

language. To go with civil war, is

0:06:050:06:12

one I would have gone with, it seems

the Tory Party are tearing each

0:06:120:06:16

other into tiny pieces.

Over Europe

again.

It seems strange. Normally

0:06:160:06:21

they are more mature about it.

I

have put The Telegraph to one side,

0:06:210:06:26

but not so fast. Up to half of

children our obese in parts of the

0:06:260:06:30

UK.

Rising obesity amongst children

is not a new story. It is something

0:06:300:06:35

we are very familiar with. It is the

first and these figures have been

0:06:350:06:39

mapped by local authorities. What it

also matters is the unfairness of it

0:06:390:06:44

and how different parts of the

countries are affected in different

0:06:440:06:47

ways. You have parts of the poorer

parts of London and the West

0:06:470:06:51

Midlands are picked out here, where

almost half of children our obese.

0:06:510:06:55

In wealthier parts of the country it

might be only 25%, it says on

0:06:550:07:01

Richmond upon Thames, a swankier

part of London. It is still a lot,

0:07:010:07:05

one in four. Their behalf in poorer

areas. Not only a growing problem of

0:07:050:07:13

obesity but how it is linked to

poverty.

And how lifelong those

0:07:130:07:17

effects can be.

The quote we have

from the Royal College of

0:07:170:07:22

Paediatrics and Child Health is that

four fifths of obese children can

0:07:220:07:25

expect to remain obese as adults and

that will cut their life expectancy

0:07:250:07:29

by up to ten years. Being born poor

will literally make you live for

0:07:290:07:33

less long.

They also calling for

curbs on the advertising of

0:07:330:07:38

unhealthy food. We have heard that

before.

It doesn't get much

0:07:380:07:41

traction. Unless they have missed

things, all that happened last time

0:07:410:07:45

there was a huge call for stopping

advertising during children's

0:07:450:07:49

programmes is that fewer children's

programmes got made and they made

0:07:490:07:53

programmes that were specifically

directed at children but were

0:07:530:07:55

nonetheless watched by them.

We move

onto the Daily Mail. The shocking

0:07:550:07:59

toll of gambling on children.

Children say they feel bombarded by

0:07:590:08:04

betting firms.

Not just children. If

you have been watching the

0:08:040:08:08

Australian Open over the last

fortnight, every single ad break,

0:08:080:08:11

every two games, and then is 90

seconds long, because that is how

0:08:110:08:17

long they take between them, it is a

parade of adverts for betting firms

0:08:170:08:21

and betting companies. It is

impossible not to feel bombarded

0:08:210:08:24

when you are watching some sport.

You feel constantly that someone is

0:08:240:08:30

trying to take money off you. I

would be surprised if teenagers were

0:08:300:08:35

the largest view in percentage of

those figures. I would imagine all

0:08:350:08:38

people like me watching Mick Dennis,

rather than them being out doing

0:08:380:08:43

something unsuitable behind a bike

shed -- watching the tennis.

0:08:430:08:49

Teenagers spend a lot more time with

screens these days. My children

0:08:490:08:52

don't go out as much as I would like

them too. A list owner where they

0:08:520:08:57

are, I suppose. The Church of

England is warning it is a moral

0:08:570:09:01

crisis -- at least I know.

We were

talking about obesity amongst young

0:09:010:09:06

children. Often the problems we sit

here discussing, cyber bullying,

0:09:060:09:10

cyber pornography, and here is

gambling. I would disagree with

0:09:100:09:16

anything that has been said about

the number of adverts a company

0:09:160:09:19

sport, but it strikes me when I see

this, two in three teenagers feel

0:09:190:09:27

bombarded. Their screen watching is

not TV.

Not linear TV, like what we

0:09:270:09:32

are doing.

It is YouTube videos,

whatever else it is, it is not

0:09:320:09:38

sitting down with their parents. As

he did not passed.

Downloading and

0:09:380:09:44

streaming stuff -- as we did in the

past.

I do not have as big a problem

0:09:440:09:52

facing children as the other things

we have talked about. The Guardian

0:09:520:09:56

next. Hundreds of thousands at risk

in squalid rented homes. Some of the

0:09:560:10:00

conditions this report describes.

They are truly awful.

I am not sure

0:10:000:10:06

how new it is. Before a lived in my

current flat, my previous one had

0:10:060:10:11

rodents, at the other had a black

mould. Obviously that does not make

0:10:110:10:15

it all right now, it was horrible

then, it is horrible now. Burman,

0:10:150:10:21

mouldy walls, exposed electrical

wiring, Lieke Ruse, broken locks,

0:10:210:10:27

they reckon it's a loss of homes for

those rented by under 30 fires. You

0:10:270:10:36

don't want to be children or a young

adult -- 30 fires.

We do have rights

0:10:360:10:42

if we are renting to expect a

certain standard. But somebody has

0:10:420:10:45

to enforce them.

We were talking

about it before. You were talking

0:10:450:10:50

about mice and moulds. We can all

remember living in some terrible

0:10:500:10:57

property. With me it would be slugs

and mushrooms growing through the

0:10:570:11:01

carpet.

Did I share a university

house with your?

I hope not.

Did you

0:11:010:11:10

see mushrooms?

We were not growing

them. Those waiting days, it was

0:11:100:11:16

short term. -- were my student days.

Perhaps you are able to move on. But

0:11:160:11:24

young people cannot afford to buy a

property any more. We have been the

0:11:240:11:28

destruction of social housing so

that people who read to rent

0:11:280:11:31

privately.

The council needs to deal

with this and they don't have the

0:11:310:11:37

money.

Accommodation in privately

rented homes is worse. I think that

0:11:370:11:42

is what is different about it now.

Far more people are having to rent

0:11:420:11:46

in the private sector where

conditions are worse and it is

0:11:460:11:49

harder to change them.

Yes. We will

stay with the Guardian. I was

0:11:490:11:55

thinking, it don't mess it up. I

know how that feels. This is a Roger

0:11:550:12:01

Federer talking. He has won his 20th

grandslam title and six Australian

0:12:010:12:07

Open.

I feel like I need to let

Natalie Tourek. I thought I liked

0:12:070:12:11

tennis, but I can't quite match the

passion -- talk.

He is my special

0:12:110:12:21

favourite.

Why is he your special

favourite?

He plays tennis

0:12:210:12:26

beautifully. He place and unlike

anyone ever has. So graceful and

0:12:260:12:31

special and it is ridiculous that he

is doing it at the age of nearly 37.

0:12:310:12:36

And there was a time when it looked

he would not win any more Grand

0:12:360:12:40

Slams and we were sad and then he

came powering back in having been

0:12:400:12:44

off for six months with an injury.

Since then he has won three of the

0:12:440:12:52

last five grand slams at the age of

35, 30 six. How is he not getting

0:12:520:12:56

old? How is this happening? -- 36.

And look at him cry beautifully

0:12:560:13:04

because he is so happy.

Why does he

have to cry?

It is an emotional

0:13:040:13:09

moment!

And he must be exhausted.

Some of his arch competitors are

0:13:090:13:15

injured at the moment, is it

churlish dimension?

Some of the

0:13:150:13:20

older players anyway, not as old as

him, they previously would have been

0:13:200:13:26

considered in decline because of

their age anyway. What is striking

0:13:260:13:30

is that there just aren't the young

players coming through...

Nick

0:13:300:13:35

Kyrgios was playing...

Not good

enough.

I realise that his opponent

0:13:350:13:43

got injured in the semifinals and

could not play and others had

0:13:430:13:46

magnificent runs and maybe the

semifinals was just one step too

0:13:460:13:49

far, but I feel hopeful for the

future. But I will cry girl tears

0:13:490:13:54

when a Roger Federer goes.

Not

mainly tears. Are they different?

I

0:13:540:14:00

will cry big girl tears. And I am

fine with that. Roger Federer has

0:14:000:14:04

shown me it is OK to cry on the

public stage.

Not in here. We might

0:14:040:14:09

need tissues.

0:14:090:14:18

It is a bit like a throwback to the

80s.

Apparently, you will now be

0:14:180:14:27

able to pay to book your sunbed when

you book your hotel said he will not

0:14:270:14:34

miss out. We were not quite sure how

you would meet the Germans who also

0:14:340:14:43

have the ability to book online...

And have had so sometime. But that

0:14:430:14:50

didn't stop an offensive headline.

You can see all of the papers online

0:14:500:14:57

on our website. And don't forget, if

you miss the programme any evening,

0:14:570:15:06

you can watch it later on BBC

iPlayer. Always a treat, thank you

0:15:060:15:13

to come in and thank you for going.
