Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers will be

0:00:160:00:19

bringing us tomorrow.

With me are

0:00:190:00:21

the FT's political correspondent

Laura Hughes

0:00:210:00:25

and Charlie Wells, who's Deputy

Snapcha Editor at the Economist.

0:00:250:00:26

Many of tomorrow's front

pages are already in.

0:00:260:00:32

We can walk you through them. The I

has the headline are guilty of

0:00:320:00:44

murder at the mosque. Prince Harry

and Meghan Markle attempt I first

0:00:440:01:00

evening function together.

Compensation payoffs must be cut or

0:01:000:01:04

the NHS will go bust. The Mirror

says its own poll shows that 70% of

0:01:040:01:09

us would pay more to save the NHS.

And the Guardian claims labourers in

0:01:090:01:16

forcing landowners to give up sites

at knock-down prices to build more

0:01:160:01:19

council houses. Brussels has lined

up sanctions to stop Britain

0:01:190:01:26

undercutting the EU economy, that's

the lead in the Financial Times. And

0:01:260:01:30

the express newspaper reports that

snoring raises your risk of

0:01:300:01:33

dementia. Bit of a mixed bag on the

front pages! Prince Harry and Meghan

0:01:330:01:39

Markle make headlines on several of

them. What we start with the very

0:01:390:01:45

serious one. The Metro newspaper say

devious and hate filled, the verdict

0:01:450:01:51

coming in today on Darren Osborne.

Tell us more about this story.

This

0:01:510:01:57

is the moment this man crashed into

a mosque and killed one man. The

0:01:570:02:02

jury decided very quickly he was

guilty. One of the more shocking

0:02:020:02:05

things that came out of it was he

had been radicalised in just three

0:02:050:02:11

weeks. It's claimed he watched the

BBC series three girls about the

0:02:110:02:16

Rochdale scandal, then went online

and was looking at far right groups

0:02:160:02:21

and very quickly became radicalised

enough to the point that he would go

0:02:210:02:24

and drive into London to try to kill

people, to try to kill Muslims

0:02:240:02:30

living in London.

This has brought a

lot of discussion about different

0:02:300:02:34

forms of extremism and the rise of

far right extremism is becoming more

0:02:340:02:38

of an issue.

So often we hear about

radicalisation of Muslim people in

0:02:380:02:45

whatever country it is. Of this is

quite a stark reminder that anyone

0:02:450:02:51

of any release, any religion, can

become radicalised. We need to be

0:02:510:02:55

careful about what kind of materials

are available online and politicians

0:02:550:02:59

need to be careful about their

rhetoric. Has been a lot of dog

0:02:590:03:03

whistle racism on both sides of the

Atlantic and now this father was

0:03:030:03:08

killed in the attack, a father of

six children, and they will live

0:03:080:03:12

their lives without a father. The

words that we say have very serious

0:03:120:03:18

consequences.

It is this issue of

course of online radicalisation.

0:03:180:03:23

It's not necessary to have a huge

network, but people are quite

0:03:230:03:28

self-contained can decide to take

very drastic action.

Government

0:03:280:03:31

ministers have been calling on the

big social media companies like

0:03:310:03:36

Facebook and accused them of not

doing enough to remove radicalising

0:03:360:03:40

content from their website, which is

very easy for anyone to access. They

0:03:400:03:52

have various rules and regulations

and categories. There is a huge

0:03:520:04:00

pressure I think the big companies

to be doing more and this is a

0:04:000:04:03

reminder of what happens when they

don't.

Were starting up with

0:04:030:04:13

Brussels lines up sanctions.

Brussels planning all sorts of

0:04:130:04:17

nasties down the line for the UK?

Trouble in Brexit Ville. The FT has

0:04:170:04:26

reported that Brussels will

essentially not allowed the UK to

0:04:260:04:30

simply become a low tax haven once

it is outside the jurisdiction of

0:04:300:04:35

the rules of the European Union and

it will not allowed British

0:04:350:04:40

companies to be very heavily

subsidised by the state.

0:04:400:04:44

Theoretically, those two moves could

be a tactic that Britain employs

0:04:440:04:49

once it leaves the European Union to

become a more attractive place for

0:04:490:04:54

businesses to settle and it could

theoretically jeopardise the economy

0:04:540:04:59

of the European Union. The difficult

part of the story and something I

0:04:590:05:04

find very interesting is that Europe

has put forward these very strict

0:05:040:05:10

bargaining positions and yet some

ministers have been saying it will

0:05:100:05:13

be very difficult to enforce these.

How do you tell a country no longer

0:05:130:05:18

in the EU that your tax rate cannot

be that low. It is an interesting

0:05:180:05:26

challenge and it will be fun to see

how that plays out.

Politically this

0:05:260:05:33

will play out very badly for Brexit

backing Tory MPs who would hate the

0:05:330:05:38

idea of any sort of sanction put on

Britain because it would limit our

0:05:380:05:42

ability to do trade deals and stand

on our own. They need something a

0:05:420:05:56

bit different because we have a

slightly different relationship.

0:05:560:06:04

Theresa May's advisers are looking

at some sort of customs agreement

0:06:040:06:09

that covers trade.

While we're on

the Financial Times, take us higher

0:06:090:06:20

up paper. Theresa May and she's in

pain and having a nice cup of tea.

0:06:200:06:26

She is in China and saying that

business deals have been signed up.

0:06:260:06:36

This is all part of Britain trying

to exercise some authority. China

0:06:360:06:44

has said it is willing to help

import meat and agricultural

0:06:440:06:54

products post Brexit. It looks like

she is enjoying that cup of tea with

0:06:540:06:58

Xi Jinping.

Going all-out to think

about the picture outside of the EU,

0:06:580:07:07

even though she is being constantly

asked to comment on Brexit.

There

0:07:070:07:14

was a report about her emphasising

Britain being a member of the

0:07:140:07:25

Security Council. I think something

the story talks about briefly as

0:07:250:07:29

their discussion about Hong Kong.

And I do wish that in the reporting

0:07:290:07:33

I've seen on Theresa May's trip, she

would've spoken a bit more about

0:07:330:07:38

human rights and a bit about the

situation in Hong Kong.

They said it

0:07:380:07:43

came up in discussions, but not very

much came out about that. Moving on

0:07:430:07:47

to the Telegraph newspaper and back

to the EU again. Their story is

0:07:470:07:55

ministers are watering down the EU

migrant plan. All about the numbers.

0:07:550:08:01

This is an analysis reportedly drawn

up by the Home Secretary. The

0:08:010:08:06

Telegraph saying the rules we are

potentially going to impose which

0:08:060:08:10

would see EU citizens given the

right to come over here if they are

0:08:100:08:14

earning just over £20,000 a year,

actually would not reduce the number

0:08:140:08:21

of citizens coming over by a great

number, only 40,000. Which again

0:08:210:08:26

would frustrate some backbench Tory

MPs. David Saker production is not

0:08:260:08:31

enough and it is not what people

voted for.

I think there is a

0:08:310:08:36

comedic irony to the fact that we

are talking about how certain people

0:08:360:08:41

hope there will be fewer migrants

from the EU in one story and inches

0:08:410:08:46

above we are talking about staffing

shortages in the NHS.

You have taken

0:08:460:08:55

that link away from me. Costs are

spiralling in the NHS?

The costs of

0:08:550:09:07

mistakes in operations are

ballooning. The NHS could go bust if

0:09:070:09:12

these pay-outs continue, according

to the story. I am not from this

0:09:120:09:16

country, as you may be able to tell

from my accent, and from the United

0:09:160:09:21

States were we have massive

malpractice lawsuits. And the

0:09:210:09:26

numbers are staggering. So it's

surprising to see that sort of thing

0:09:260:09:29

discussed here. It's fascinating

because this seems to be obviously

0:09:290:09:35

here in the UK we have the NHS paid

for by taxpayers. So the issue of

0:09:350:09:42

negligence cut a lot closer to home.

We need to move on. Laura, you can

0:09:420:09:48

take us to the Guardian newspaper

who have a lovely picture of a

0:09:480:09:52

dragon, but it's not the Dragon were

talking about as we've done China.

0:09:520:09:56

We will speak about Labour plans for

landowners to part with some of

0:09:560:10:03

their rather precious land but not

for a rather huge price?

It is a

0:10:030:10:09

topical issue from Labour to jump up

on. We have a housing crisis and

0:10:090:10:12

they are talking about making it

legally enforceable for landowners

0:10:120:10:17

to sell their land at less of a

price. At the moment, we have this

0:10:170:10:20

thing called Hope value. Gland cells

for much more than it is worth

0:10:200:10:24

because people expect it to be worth

more when the land is granted

0:10:240:10:28

planning permission to build

housing. Labour's argument here is

0:10:280:10:31

it takes a lot longer and is more

expensive to do it that way and

0:10:310:10:45

actually if you reduce the cost of

land, it would speed up the

0:10:530:10:55

purchasing of it and therefore speed

up the cost of building houses which

0:10:550:10:58

we all know I desperately needed.

I

know there is more to say that, but

0:10:580:11:01

Charlie I would like you to get me

to the next story. You are good on

0:11:010:11:04

technical things. Matt Hancock, the

Culture Secretary, has his new app.

0:11:040:11:06

This was the talk of the town in

political spheres of London today.

0:11:060:11:11

The Culture Secretary has released

this app where it has created means

0:11:110:11:19

and people have allegedly claimed to

meet their significant other. Fun

0:11:190:11:24

aside, there have been some fears

that this potentially could have

0:11:240:11:28

some pro-Russian purgation is. There

were some concerns over the course

0:11:280:11:31

of the day as people are downloaded

this app that the Culture Secretary

0:11:310:11:42

wanted to access photographs. At

social media is changing. One of the

0:11:420:11:47

reasons why Matt Hancock has said he

came up with this app is because

0:11:470:11:50

people are tired of Twitter and they

feel they can't believe what they

0:11:500:11:56

see on user generated content

platforms. He is saying, you trust

0:11:560:12:00

me, here is my app. Or my question

is, can you trust a politician?

You

0:12:000:12:07

select! Politicians are having to

rethink the way they communicate. He

0:12:070:12:14

is saying this is about his

constituents seeing what he is doing

0:12:140:12:18

day-to-day.

Everyone can communicate

with each other, make new friends

0:12:180:12:25

and make mischief. The Tories are

trying to rebrand them to better on

0:12:250:12:30

social media. The content have been

putting out on Facebook and Twitter

0:12:300:12:33

is not in the same level as the

Labour Party and I think this is him

0:12:330:12:36

taking it into his own hands.

What

would it be like to describe this

0:12:360:12:46

app to someone from 1998. There will

be a tiny piece of glass in your

0:12:460:12:51

pocket with a square on it and you

push it and speak to a politician.

A

0:12:510:12:59

late arrival, the Daily Mail has

come through past we have been

0:12:590:13:04

talking. Prostate cancer has now

become a bigger killer than breast

0:13:040:13:07

cancer. The paper says it receives

half the funding and is asking if

0:13:070:13:16

there is a bias against men. We have

brought you up to speed. Don't

0:13:160:13:21

forget, you can see the front pages

online.

0:13:210:13:31

online

0:13:310:13:32

on the BBC News website.

0:13:320:13:33

It's all there for you

seven days a week

0:13:330:13:35

at bbc.co.uk/papers -

and if you miss the programme

0:13:350:13:37

any evening you can watch it

later on BBC iPlayer.

0:13:370:13:40

Thank you, Laura and Charlie.
