Toby Jones and Paul burkini star in
Caedmon journey's to make end. Here
about that and the other top
releases of this week in The Film
Review. -- star in journey's end.
Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow.
With me are the author
and journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown
and the Political
Strategist Jo Tanner.
Let's have a look at
tomorrow's front pages.
The Metro uses a Musketeer analogy
to describe Amber Rudd's comments
on Cabinet relations.
Theresa May is appeasing
Tory Brexiteers by scrapping plans
to remain in the customs union,
according to the i.
Meanwhile the Times says a Cabinet
compromise on the customs union,
is on the cards.
A top Bank of England official warns
in the Financial Times.
The Guardian has an exclusive
on a secret fraternity of Freemasons
which is continuing
to operate in Westminster.
Lloyds becoming the first bank
to ban customers from using credit
cards to buy bitcoin,
is the Telegraph's top story.
The Express says it's
time to wrap up warm,
describing the forthcoming cold
spell as a "Scandinavian freeze".
And on the same story,
the Mirror says temperatures
are going to plummet to minus 14.
That's the flavour of
tomorrow's front pages -
no real consensus on what the main
story is, so let's see what's
appealed to our guests this evening.
I know you will kick us off with the
eye and the woes of Theresa May.
is there in China saying she is not
a quitter and she is her own person.
She is increasingly not. That does
make me sad because she is a female
Prime Minister and I think she needs
to be much more gutsier. As soon as
she returns here, something happens
to her. According to this paper she
is ruling out the customs union with
Europe. It is not up to us, exactly,
because there is so much evidence.
It is not up to the Brexit
supporters either, it is up to the
evidence of what will be good for us
and what the Europeans will agree
to. It seems to me that while she
was away, the plotters were at it
and gnashing us to confront them.

the hardliners and that is the
balance she is trying to sort out.
It is interesting because there is a
suggestion that she is weak and she
is not doing a good job. But Angela

If you look
at the times, when you read the

trade talks according to the times,
they say she has a plan to divide
and rule. There is a suggestion that
she is starting to grab hold of

story in the Times? It is about

The suggestion is that
the customs union is a huge area of
concern for many politicians of all
colours. The suggestion is that
there is some kind of time limited
extension to elements of the
existing customs union that will be
proposed. The briefing here in the
Times is that there is a belief that
this will prove to be more
attractive to Michael Gove than
Boris Johnson and it will start to
break up two of the so called

that this meeting will solve many
disagreements. That is a high hope.
And then there are 27 countries...
Yes, they do need to sign off on the
deal on the other end. It is quite a
long process. The Guardian has a
different lead. An exclusive about

with MPs and journalists.
as we celebrate the Centenary of
women getting the vote and a
fabulous suffragette picture on the
bottom, we have the unveiling of a
men's club. Freemason orders set up
for journalists in Parliament and
MPs. It recruits MPs, peers and
parliamentary staff and a gallery
lodge that was established among the
political press call. Apparently
they are both active. I don't know
how many people are involved but the
suggestion is that they have been
going for some time. Most people
assume that this sort of stuff has

This story is

don't know the full details of what
the numbers allude to however 351
patients with malnutrition listed on
the death certificate in 2016 which
is rather frightening. It sounds
like quite a large number. Looking
at it, what we do not know is what
that means. There is a suggestion in
the story that people are already
arriving in hospital with nutrition
issues. My mother was in hospital
last year for five months and she
must have done that menu round and
round on the loop. She lost nearly
five stone while she was there. It
is a challenge for people to eat.
And as families become more

This suggests that more should be

who have time?
There are a lot of
young retired people, young in body
and spirit, I am sure that would
help if they set up a group. It does
take time. I went to see my hospital
-- sister in hospital today and she
had not eaten nothing. I tried to
get her to eat. I did not hang
around for a long time because I
couldn't. And then I went away
feeling terrible. If I had stayed,
maybe she would have eaten. She had
just decided she would not eat.
in all fairness to the NHS, they
have invested heavily in improving
menus. On the whole it is not
actually the food that is the issue,
it is more about the patient and the
experience in there.

they can hasten the end.
They make a
conscious decision. An interesting
thought there. Stand now with
health, men still dying of
embarrassment in the Daily Mail.
This is prostate cancer. An
important story. The Daily Mail are
adopting a campaign on this.
Essentially, they say that men are
still dying of embarrassment and the
idea is that they are to a Barrass
to visit a doctor with prostate
cancer symptoms. There was a story
last week was saying that prostate
cancer has become a bigger killer
now than breast cancer. This story
of talks about people from the
sector explaining that now there is
half the funding and half the
research that goes into this cancer
and yet it is such a big killer. We
have almost seen breast cancer take
off with lots of events and themed
months and that sort of thing but
men have symptoms that can often be
