Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow.
With me are
the FT's political correspondent
and Charlie Wells, who's Deputy
Snapcha Editor at the Economist.
Many of tomorrow's front
pages are already in.
We can walk you through them. The I
has the headline are guilty of
murder at the mosque. Prince Harry
and Meghan Markle attempt I first
evening function together.
Compensation payoffs must be cut or
the NHS will go bust. The Mirror
says its own poll shows that 70% of
us would pay more to save the NHS.
And the Guardian claims labourers in
forcing landowners to give up sites
at knock-down prices to build more
council houses. Brussels has lined
up sanctions to stop Britain
undercutting the EU economy, that's
the lead in the Financial Times. And
the express newspaper reports that
snoring raises your risk of
dementia. Bit of a mixed bag on the
front pages! Prince Harry and Meghan
Markle make headlines on several of
them. What we start with the very
serious one. The Metro newspaper say
devious and hate filled, the verdict
coming in today on Darren Osborne.
Tell us more about this story.
is the moment this man crashed into
a mosque and killed one man. The
jury decided very quickly he was
guilty. One of the more shocking
things that came out of it was he
had been radicalised in just three
weeks. It's claimed he watched the
BBC series three girls about the
Rochdale scandal, then went online
and was looking at far right groups
and very quickly became radicalised
enough to the point that he would go
and drive into London to try to kill
people, to try to kill Muslims
living in London.
This has brought a
lot of discussion about different
forms of extremism and the rise of
far right extremism is becoming more
of an issue.
So often we hear about
radicalisation of Muslim people in
whatever country it is. Of this is
quite a stark reminder that anyone
of any release, any religion, can
become radicalised. We need to be
careful about what kind of materials
are available online and politicians
need to be careful about their
rhetoric. Has been a lot of dog
whistle racism on both sides of the
Atlantic and now this father was
killed in the attack, a father of
six children, and they will live
their lives without a father. The
words that we say have very serious
It is this issue of
course of online radicalisation.
It's not necessary to have a huge
network, but people are quite
self-contained can decide to take
very drastic action.
ministers have been calling on the
big social media companies like
Facebook and accused them of not
doing enough to remove radicalising
content from their website, which is
very easy for anyone to access. They
have various rules and regulations
and categories. There is a huge
pressure I think the big companies
to be doing more and this is a
reminder of what happens when they
Were starting up with
Brussels lines up sanctions.
Brussels planning all sorts of
nasties down the line for the UK?
Trouble in Brexit Ville. The FT has
reported that Brussels will
essentially not allowed the UK to
simply become a low tax haven once
it is outside the jurisdiction of
the rules of the European Union and
it will not allowed British
companies to be very heavily
subsidised by the state.
Theoretically, those two moves could
be a tactic that Britain employs
once it leaves the European Union to
become a more attractive place for
businesses to settle and it could
theoretically jeopardise the economy
of the European Union. The difficult
part of the story and something I
find very interesting is that Europe
has put forward these very strict
bargaining positions and yet some
ministers have been saying it will
be very difficult to enforce these.
How do you tell a country no longer
in the EU that your tax rate cannot
be that low. It is an interesting
challenge and it will be fun to see
how that plays out.
will play out very badly for Brexit
backing Tory MPs who would hate the
idea of any sort of sanction put on
Britain because it would limit our
ability to do trade deals and stand
on our own. They need something a
bit different because we have a
slightly different relationship.
Theresa May's advisers are looking
at some sort of customs agreement
that covers trade.
While we're on
the Financial Times, take us higher
up paper. Theresa May and she's in
pain and having a nice cup of tea.
She is in China and saying that
business deals have been signed up.
This is all part of Britain trying
to exercise some authority. China
has said it is willing to help
import meat and agricultural
products post Brexit. It looks like
she is enjoying that cup of tea with
Going all-out to think
about the picture outside of the EU,
even though she is being constantly
asked to comment on Brexit.
was a report about her emphasising
Britain being a member of the
Security Council. I think something
the story talks about briefly as
their discussion about Hong Kong.
And I do wish that in the reporting
I've seen on Theresa May's trip, she
would've spoken a bit more about
human rights and a bit about the
situation in Hong Kong.
They said it
came up in discussions, but not very
much came out about that. Moving on
to the Telegraph newspaper and back
to the EU again. Their story is
ministers are watering down the EU
migrant plan. All about the numbers.
This is an analysis reportedly drawn
up by the Home Secretary. The
Telegraph saying the rules we are
potentially going to impose which
would see EU citizens given the
right to come over here if they are
earning just over £20,000 a year,
actually would not reduce the number
of citizens coming over by a great
number, only 40,000. Which again
would frustrate some backbench Tory
MPs. David Saker production is not
enough and it is not what people
I think there is a
comedic irony to the fact that we
are talking about how certain people
hope there will be fewer migrants
from the EU in one story and inches
above we are talking about staffing
shortages in the NHS.
You have taken
that link away from me. Costs are
spiralling in the NHS?
The costs of
mistakes in operations are
ballooning. The NHS could go bust if
these pay-outs continue, according
to the story. I am not from this
country, as you may be able to tell
from my accent, and from the United
States were we have massive
malpractice lawsuits. And the
numbers are staggering. So it's
surprising to see that sort of thing
discussed here. It's fascinating
because this seems to be obviously
here in the UK we have the NHS paid
for by taxpayers. So the issue of
negligence cut a lot closer to home.
We need to move on. Laura, you can
take us to the Guardian newspaper
who have a lovely picture of a
dragon, but it's not the Dragon were
talking about as we've done China.
We will speak about Labour plans for
landowners to part with some of
their rather precious land but not
for a rather huge price?
It is a
topical issue from Labour to jump up
on. We have a housing crisis and
they are talking about making it
legally enforceable for landowners
to sell their land at less of a
price. At the moment, we have this
thing called Hope value. Gland cells
for much more than it is worth
because people expect it to be worth
more when the land is granted
planning permission to build
housing. Labour's argument here is
it takes a lot longer and is more
expensive to do it that way and
actually if you reduce the cost of
land, it would speed up the
purchasing of it and therefore speed
up the cost of building houses which
we all know I desperately needed.
know there is more to say that, but
Charlie I would like you to get me
to the next story. You are good on
technical things. Matt Hancock, the
Culture Secretary, has his new app.
This was the talk of the town in
political spheres of London today.
The Culture Secretary has released
this app where it has created means
and people have allegedly claimed to
meet their significant other. Fun
aside, there have been some fears
that this potentially could have
some pro-Russian purgation is. There
were some concerns over the course
of the day as people are downloaded
this app that the Culture Secretary
wanted to access photographs. At
social media is changing. One of the
reasons why Matt Hancock has said he
came up with this app is because
people are tired of Twitter and they
feel they can't believe what they
see on user generated content
platforms. He is saying, you trust
me, here is my app. Or my question
is, can you trust a politician?
select! Politicians are having to
rethink the way they communicate. He
is saying this is about his
constituents seeing what he is doing
Everyone can communicate
with each other, make new friends
and make mischief. The Tories are
trying to rebrand them to better on

taking it into his own hands.
would it be like to describe this
app to someone from 1998. There will

pocket with a square on it and you
push it and speak to a politician.
late arrival, the Daily Mail has
come through past we have been
talking. Prostate cancer has now
become a bigger killer than breast
cancer. The paper says it receives
half the funding and is asking if
there is a bias against men. We have
brought you up to speed. Don't
forget, you can see the front pages
on the BBC News website.
It's all there for you

any evening you can watch it
later on BBC iPlayer.
Thank you, Laura and Charlie.
