Hello, and welcome to our look ahead

to what the papers will be bringing

0:00:180:00:22

us tomorrow. With ask, is Tim

Stanley, and Suzy Boniface. Many

0:00:220:00:32

tomorrow's front pages are already

in. The news that the US Congress

0:00:320:00:41

released a memo has made many of the

front pages, but it did meet the

0:00:410:00:47

front page of the Financial Times.

That story also gets a brief mention

0:00:470:00:52

on the front of the Guardian, but

the paper's top story is a closer

0:00:520:00:56

look too much of the processed foods

that we eat. The Telegraph leads on

0:00:560:01:01

Government plans for heterosexual

couples to be offered civil

0:01:010:01:06

partnerships, which are currently

only available to insects couples.

0:01:060:01:10

The paper also celebrates the land

reunion of the Spice Girls. The

0:01:100:01:19

Mirror claims Amy MAC -- AMD

waiting... The number of prostate

0:01:190:01:36

cancer deaths overtook the number of

breast cancer deaths in women for

0:01:360:01:41

the first time. The paper is

suggesting that more money needs to

0:01:410:01:44

be spent on tackling Bostick cancer.

The Times lead on plans for a

0:01:440:01:49

crackdown on Russian oligarchs, who

will be forced to spend their luxury

0:01:490:01:53

lifestyle in this country. So, no

real consensus on which one story is

0:01:530:02:06

topping the front pages, but plenty

of different services that the

0:02:060:02:09

weekend. -- subjects. Let's start

with the FT, which is the one paper

0:02:090:02:18

which has picked up on this memo

that has been seizing the headlines

0:02:180:02:22

this evening. Tim, I know that you

have read it, what you make of it?

0:02:220:02:27

What you make of what the FDA have

said?

This is contradicted, buckle

0:02:270:02:32

up. We all know that there is a

investigation going on into the top

0:02:320:02:37

campaign's links with Russia. That

is the background. The Republicans,

0:02:370:02:43

in an effort to fight back

politically, have released a memo

0:02:430:02:46

which charges that the FBI's seeking

of a wire tap on an important member

0:02:460:02:52

of the Trump campaign, they say that

when a sword that wiretap, they

0:02:520:02:58

didn't make certain important thing

is clear. So, they didn't make clear

0:02:580:03:03

where the allegations were coming

from, they didn't make it clear

0:03:030:03:06

solution as they put it with the

Democrats. In other words, the

0:03:060:03:12

Republicans are trying to undermine

the FBI's investigation, or at least

0:03:120:03:17

trying to give the impression that

there was political, and media

0:03:170:03:20

buyers in the FBI's investigation of

the Trump campaign. Frankly, the

0:03:200:03:28

memo doesn't change very much. There

are other investigations going on

0:03:280:03:33

off top's campaign, and there are

some allegations which members of

0:03:330:03:37

the campaign have already admitted

to. For instance, we know that there

0:03:370:03:41

was a meeting between the Russians

and Donald Trump Jr. It doesn't

0:03:410:03:44

change any of that. What it does do,

it politically, is it gives Donald

0:03:440:03:49

Trump a weapon, something that will

mobilise his supporters, saying that

0:03:490:03:54

I have evidence, that this was not

just about finding out the truth

0:03:540:03:57

between me and Russia, this was

about using the Democrats using the

0:03:570:04:01

services to get at me.

What a

tangle.

It slurs and slurs. There is

0:04:010:04:18

the Christopher steel dossier, to

discredit time. They are using at as

0:04:180:04:23

a basis for an investigation,

without pointing out that many part

0:04:230:04:26

of that dossier have been verified

and known to be true. The fact that

0:04:260:04:31

this particular investigation was

started before the stud dossier was

0:04:310:04:35

even Britain, 2013. -- even written.

It is just a way that Donald Trump

0:04:350:04:42

can distract his normal technique of

AIDS dead cat on the table. What is

0:04:420:04:49

interesting, is that if you are a

Trump supporter, it confirms -- a

0:04:490:04:55

dead cat on the table. When that

dossier was first released and

0:04:550:05:00

published online, you said it was

disgraceful. It was unverified, it

0:05:000:05:06

was unproven. And here we are, the

President of the United States,

0:05:060:05:13

publishing a similarly unproven

memo, which doesn't prove anything

0:05:130:05:18

at all. He is saying that it is

shocking and shameful, as though it

0:05:180:05:23

is definitely true. It is more

madness. It is another thing... You

0:05:230:05:27

know, how mad has he got to be

before anybody would actually change

0:05:270:05:31

their opinion about in one way or

the other? An I agree with a lot of

0:05:310:05:35

that. I did entirely agree on

whether or not that memo shows is

0:05:350:05:40

significant.

It is significant if it

turns out that the Democrats

0:05:400:05:48

financed some of the staff which was

then used as the justification...

0:05:480:05:59

Only if that dossier was true. If

the facts are correct, it doesn't

0:05:590:06:04

matter who paid for it.

One thing

that is for certain, is that this is

0:06:040:06:09

a row that is going to continue...

In the pursuit of justice, if you

0:06:090:06:14

drop procedure, it doesn't matter if

you are guilty, or not. If yorkers

0:06:140:06:19

should choose no rights have been

violated, they have been violated.

0:06:190:06:24

-- if your constitutional rights.

Exactly. It is because the FBI are

0:06:240:06:32

going so Katherine dotting every tea

and -- -- going so carefully and

0:06:320:06:38

causing every tea and dotting every

eye.

Let's just look at the Daily

0:06:380:06:45

Telegraph. Biggest marriage is

shake-up in 200 years.

Yes, you may

0:06:450:06:50

or member when I was a very young

child, the new Labour Government

0:06:500:06:56

introduced the partnerships

legislation, which allowed gay

0:06:560:06:58

people to get a civil partnership.

At the time, it was argued that this

0:06:580:07:02

would be extended to her to

sections, as well. So that you could

0:07:020:07:06

get sisters, getting married, or

whatever, so that they would get the

0:07:060:07:09

same inheritance rights, host of

like that. And then, you have got

0:07:090:07:15

gay marriage, and every thing moved

on. Now, what is happening is that

0:07:150:07:18

the Government is looking at

introducing those rights to get a...

0:07:180:07:25

You have a civil partnership for

acceptance, too. This is a genuinely

0:07:250:07:30

egalitarian move, those who are

arguing for it, would say. Urn

the

0:07:300:07:37

quality? Importance that? Will it

make a huge Hibiscus

probably not.

0:07:370:07:41

The claim that it is the biggest

shake-up in 200 years, I would claim

0:07:410:07:46

that is hyperbole. Although it is

the claim that it is the change of a

0:07:460:07:51

state -based marriage as opposed to

a church -based marriage, P was the

0:07:510:07:54

get married, who was get divorced,

and your marriage are still the

0:07:540:07:57

life. Not signing the register, at

the time, but... These are the first

0:07:570:08:10

shake-ups to the way that we

register marriages. Since 1837, and

0:08:100:08:14

many people would argue that life

has changed, people have changed,

0:08:140:08:17

and of course we could change

things, since 1837.

This is only

0:08:170:08:23

going to effect a relatively small

number of heterosexual couples who

0:08:230:08:27

want this option of a civil

partnership. Don't want to go

0:08:270:08:32

through the whole business of having

a religious ceremony. Plenty of

0:08:320:08:37

people get married in a registry

office.

Yes, exactly. I struggle to

0:08:370:08:41

see the difference. What a

marriages, is a state's recognition

0:08:410:08:47

of the union. If you need to do so

union, you need to have the

0:08:470:08:50

proceedings of a state involved in

order to separate it and dissolve

0:08:500:08:55

it. It is just another way of the

state saying, we will control your

0:08:550:08:59

relationship in some respect.

The

conservative counter argument, of

0:08:590:09:08

course, is that this is part of a

long move, an arc toward undermining

0:09:080:09:12

what marriage was. 15 years ago,

which was MPB union of a man and a

0:09:120:09:19

woman. The evidence still suggests

that marriages last longer, and

0:09:190:09:24

better for children. There was

research done which found that one

0:09:240:09:29

in five couples who were cohabiting,

were no longer living together by

0:09:290:09:32

the time their child had reached the

age of three, versus one in 20, in

0:09:320:09:40

couples where they are married.

There is an observable difference in

0:09:400:09:43

getting married and having a civil

partnership, and it seems that

0:09:430:09:46

getting married lasts longer. The

conservative argument would be that

0:09:460:09:55

if you incredible partnership, you

will encourage the further dilation

0:09:550:09:58

of traditional marriage.

That have a

look at the e-mail, it has been very

0:09:580:10:03

taken... The second headline in a

row on this revelation about the

0:10:030:10:08

increasing incidences of prostate

cancer in men. The mail seems to be

0:10:080:10:16

seizing on this to say, let's have

some more funding to look into this.

0:10:160:10:20

Yes, and it is drawing a lot of

comparisons with rest cancer, which

0:10:200:10:26

is not quite reasonable, because

while there are some aggressive

0:10:260:10:30

prostate cancers, there are many

which are not aggressive. Because,

0:10:300:10:35

they will get it when they are 75,

serving as will carry them off

0:10:350:10:39

before the prostate Cancer manages

to do any damage. So, the argument

0:10:390:10:43

here, is because there are roughly

11,000 deaths from breast cancer and

0:10:430:10:48

prostate cancer, and the rate of

mortality for both is dropping. We

0:10:480:10:50

are curing people with both, it's

just that we are curing people with

0:10:500:10:55

breast cancer figure, that we are

with prostate cancer. They are

0:10:550:10:58

saying that we should spend more

money on the prostate cancer. They

0:10:580:11:01

are not suggesting where the money

should come from. It has got to come

0:11:010:11:05

from somewhere other than the NHS,

and I think the issue may be men not

0:11:050:11:09

reporting symptoms which means that

they would get their prostate

0:11:090:11:12

screening tests on their GP.

Problems with your knitting, and

0:11:120:11:16

other issues which should mean that

they should go and see their GP. Men

0:11:160:11:23

should be doing that and getting

diagnosed, sooner.

It is interesting

0:11:230:11:27

that at the moment, there doesn't

seem to be a national programme of

0:11:270:11:31

greening for prostate cancer, where

as of course, breast cancer women of

0:11:310:11:40

-- women of is that major invited to

go for one.

Men are also living

0:11:400:11:47

longer, and the longer you live, the

more likely you are to get it. Right

0:11:470:11:54

now, it is essentially elective, if

you wanted over the age of 50, you

0:11:540:11:58

can go on request, you can get it.

But, I do think it is true, that

0:11:580:12:03

there is a lot of cultural awareness

and discussion of breast cancer.

0:12:030:12:06

There isn't so much of prostate. I

am not saying it is a fight between

0:12:060:12:11

the two. I'm just saying that

perhaps then used to be among men,

0:12:110:12:14

and when it comes to men's health,

greater conversation.

Women are a

0:12:140:12:24

little bit more comfortable to

talking about boobs.

I'm not asking

0:12:240:12:38

for directions.

I just wonder

whether we should move on on that

0:12:380:12:42

note, and wonder if there's any

connection the Guardian's front

0:12:420:12:46

page. This is about eating processed

food. As a victim Richard thing that

0:12:460:12:50

we are all now taken up by this

healthy living campaigns, but

0:12:500:12:55

apparently we are all eating

processed food.

The Guardian has

0:12:550:12:58

done a surprising front page,

reported that over half of the food

0:12:580:13:06

that we eat is ultra processed. If

you think about the fact that milk

0:13:060:13:10

comes out of cows, and the process

to bump cheese. And then, it is

0:13:100:13:15

older processed to put the cheese

with the butter on a jacket potato.

0:13:150:13:20

Resisting it more than once is not

necessarily mean a bad thing. This

0:13:200:13:27

survey, is comparing surveys from

different countries carried out at

0:13:270:13:31

different times, using different

methodologies. So, it is not

0:13:310:13:35

scientific, there is no real basis

in fact. It seems to have been led

0:13:350:13:39

by a university in Brazil, and it

complains about people using

0:13:390:13:45

processed foods, but we don't want

to do without custard creams, do we?

0:13:450:13:50

Well, apparently, we are all eating

salty snacks, she agrees Syria's,

0:13:500:13:56

industrial made -- sugary cereals.

Industrial made bread.

There is an

0:13:560:14:06

advert above it for pumpernickel ice

creams. It looks delicious. That

0:14:060:14:17

sounds processed. We are ahead of

Europeans. If there is anything in

0:14:170:14:27

it, I suspect it comes down to not

enough people cook with fresh

0:14:270:14:31

ingredients. I know that I don't. I

am probably something like 90%

0:14:310:14:35

processed foods. A lot of us did

have the time.

It is extremely that

0:14:350:14:42

the Guardian expends those strange

0:14:420:14:53

juxtaposition of Ottalenghi, who has

all of these incredible recipes, and

0:14:570:15:02

all the different ingredients.

Nigella MAC I don't have time for

0:15:020:15:04

that. I ain't eating that.

Celebrity

recipes is one of my personal

0:15:040:15:12

bugbears. You can look at the

recipe, or and it will contain at

0:15:120:15:20

least three ingredients that you

never heard of. I bet you any money,

0:15:200:15:23

no one in Britain, this weekend, are

prepared to state a kidney on this,

0:15:230:15:28

-- I'm prepared to stake a kidney on

this, is going to make pumpernickel

0:15:280:15:32

ice cream. Nobody. No one. If we

were doing newspaper recipes

0:15:320:15:38

anywhere as an television... If we

as she did, this is why we make a

0:15:380:15:47

reasonable cheese sandwich. This is

how you make a pot of tea, I think

0:15:470:15:53

people like Tim would have more

education about how to cook from

0:15:530:15:57

fresh, how to cook from scratch, how

to do a roast chicken.

Delia got in

0:15:570:16:04

a lot of trouble when she started

trying to tell us how to boil an.

0:16:040:16:10

You are not supposed to eat the

Telegraph.

There is a bit of

0:16:100:16:18

politics that into the front page.

That is talking about how three of

0:16:180:16:22

the leading Brexiteers any cabinet

are apparently going to come

0:16:220:16:34

out and,... I thought Theresa May

had said that we would not have one.

0:16:390:16:43

The idea is that we are going for a

bespoke trade deal. The problem is

0:16:430:16:46

not so much of what we end up with,

it is the Government's ability to be

0:16:460:16:52

clear about it -- inability to be

clear about it. It is astonishing

0:16:520:16:57

that we are still having this

conversation, 18 months after the

0:16:570:17:00

referendum. A year after Theresa May

became leader. People are still

0:17:000:17:05

raising questions like we going to

be in the customs union a customs

0:17:050:17:10

union, are we going to have Canada

plus, plus, plus, plus. To be fair

0:17:100:17:15

to Theresa May, everything just got

to do, she has gotten them navigate

0:17:150:17:18

through that tiny majority, and

you've got to get the EU to agree to

0:17:180:17:23

whatever she's asking for, it is

extraordinary.

She's not doing

0:17:230:17:34

anything about Brexit, she is

literally having to sought out and

0:17:340:17:42

play off Remainers and hard

Brexiteers, and try and keep them

0:17:420:17:46

all roughly in shape. The same thing

would be happening in the

0:17:460:17:50

Conservative Party of shadow

majority of 134. This is how the

0:17:500:17:53

Tories have been of this rating

themselves for 40 years and they are

0:17:530:17:56

carrying on doing it now. We are

known having any sort of Brexit,

0:17:560:18:00

then we were on the day the

referendum.

Now, we will very

0:18:000:18:05

briefly touched on the other big

picture, here. The Spice Girls back

0:18:050:18:09

together, is this going to be a

powerful new demonstration of girl

0:18:090:18:12

power?

Well know, because they are

not girls.

That was the phrase at

0:18:120:18:19

the time. I didn't mean that.

I

know. They are getting 50 million in

0:18:190:18:24

order to not sing, because they are

going to be having a TV show, and

0:18:240:18:27

releasing their old hits. I am happy

to bathe and not to sing. I'm

0:18:270:18:33

absolutely delighted about that.

Tim, you will be delighted to see

0:18:330:18:39

the Spice Girls? Sylla and very

lighted to spice up my life. Puzzle,

0:18:390:18:44

it is unusual is it not for a woman

scooped a like this, and secondly,

0:18:440:18:49

from what I can remember, they were

the last band that sang songs that

0:18:490:18:55

had catchy cheese.

You have not

heard of Take That

this was the 90s.

0:18:550:19:03

I was about three when they were in

the charts.

Out of it for the

0:19:030:19:10

papers, tonight. Don't forget, you

can seek the papers online. If you

0:19:100:19:19

mist the programme any ring, you can

watch it later. My thanks to Tim

0:19:190:19:24

Stanley, and now it is time for the

weather with Philip.
