Hello, and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers will be

0:00:160:00:19

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:190:00:23

With me are the political

commentator and former Tory

0:00:230:00:26

adviser Jo-Anne Nadler,

and the journalist James Rampton.

0:00:260:00:30

Thank you for being with us.

0:00:300:00:32

Thank you for being with us.

0:00:320:00:33

Several front pages are already in.

0:00:330:00:35

And there's little

consensus on the lead.

0:00:350:00:37

The Times has a picture

on its front page of

0:00:370:00:40

South Africa's President Jacob Zuma,

announcing his resignation.

0:00:400:00:44

The Express headlines the news that

medical research has found that

0:00:440:00:46

processed food poses

a cancer danger.

0:00:460:00:52

The lead in the Daily Telegraph

is the demand from the DUP

0:00:520:00:55

for the resumption of direct rule

from Westminster,

0:00:550:00:57

after power-sharing talks

in Northern Ireland broke down.

0:00:570:01:01

And The Metro leads on the homeless

man who died just yards

0:01:010:01:04

from Parliament, after a night

of sub-zero temperatures.

0:01:040:01:08

So, Jacob Zuma, and warnings

about links between processed food

0:01:080:01:14

and cancer on a couple of papers

there, let's take a closer look.

0:01:140:01:24

The Guardian, a picture of Jacob

Zuma. Steps down ahead of favourite

0:01:250:01:29

of no confidence he jumped before he

was pushed.

Absolutely. Having

0:01:290:01:36

worked in a newspaper office for

many years I'm always impressed when

0:01:360:01:40

they kick into action and turn out a

front-page very quickly because this

0:01:400:01:45

speech did not happen so long ago.

It was 30 minutes. It was quite

0:01:450:01:49

rambling. To get it on the front

page with a picture of him looking

0:01:490:01:52

downcast is a very good bit of

journalism.

Sometimes you can do it

0:01:520:01:57

with a big picture, you don't need

too many words.

Jason Burke, an

0:01:570:02:01

excellent correspondent, summed it

up well. There is more online that

0:02:010:02:05

we've read. It's interesting is very

defiant, he gave a really angry

0:02:050:02:11

interview again quite rambling, over

allow this afternoon saying he was

0:02:110:02:14

the victim in all of this. This

evening he said, I fear no motion of

0:02:140:02:20

no-confidence or impeachment. He's

not going to go out without a fight.

0:02:200:02:23

My senses he spent last week

wrangling about getting immunity

0:02:230:02:28

from prosecution because over 700

charges of corruption await him at

0:02:280:02:32

the moment is not president. He's

been wrangling saying, can I cut

0:02:320:02:37

some sort of deal? Like happened in

Zimbabwe when it was forced to step

0:02:370:02:42

down. At the moment the Constitution

doesn't allow for that and he may be

0:02:420:02:47

worried about those charges hanging

over him.

Definitely echoes of

0:02:470:02:50

Robert Mugabe.

I think so, I was

last on the programme the day he

0:02:500:02:56

eventually stood down. It's two lots

of pressure on Jacob Zuma. One is

0:02:560:03:03

the criminal charges potentially,

and the very widespread

0:03:030:03:07

understanding of a lot of corruption

here. Police are going to the family

0:03:070:03:13

of the Guptills, I think, today, to

close some of that down. And

0:03:130:03:19

investigate that in a way that

hasn't been out in the open yet. On

0:03:190:03:22

the other side is the political

pressure about the real problems

0:03:220:03:25

with the economy and complete

mismanagement of the economy. It'll

0:03:250:03:30

be interesting to see how his likely

successor can actually improve the

0:03:300:03:35

situation.

It's a country in

complete chaos.

A long way from the

0:03:350:03:43

rule of Mandela.

That glorious

optimism. We remember the sense of

0:03:430:03:47

the rainbow nation, when he was

released, proving a beacon of hope

0:03:470:03:50

to the world. Zoom in his nine years

has managed decline and seemed to

0:03:500:03:56

favour his cronies. The Gupta

family... His son is involved. There

0:03:560:04:05

are claims that the Zuma will

testify against the Gupta family as

0:04:050:04:09

part of the deal, those rumours

swirling around. This antibody

0:04:090:04:13

massive palace for himself, the

sense of nine years of wasted

0:04:130:04:17

opportunity, Cape Town about to run

out of water. It's a country in

0:04:170:04:21

crisis.

The Daily Telegraph

front-page. Northern Ireland,

0:04:210:04:25

another political crisis. Their

headline is the DUP calling for

0:04:250:04:32

direct rule, leaving Theresa May

facing crisis in Northern Ireland.

0:04:320:04:36

Yes. Reminiscent of the story we

were discussing. A sense of, what a

0:04:360:04:40

long time ago it seems that there

was successful, unexpectedly

0:04:400:04:45

successful power-sharing between...

In the days of McGuinness and a

0:04:450:04:52

reverend Ian Paisley.

The Chuckle

Brothers they were called.

Nobody

0:04:520:04:56

laughing now, that's the case. In a

slightly wicked way I couldn't help

0:04:560:05:01

finding peculiarly amusing the idea

that Theresa May's DUP partners have

0:05:010:05:07

been quite so catty, I think about

her involvement with trying to get

0:05:070:05:13

this show back on the road, saying

quite publicly her trip there

0:05:130:05:20

yesterday was less than helpful.

They said it was a distraction.

Less

0:05:200:05:26

than helpful. You feel you don't

need friends like that, what enemies

0:05:260:05:30

do you need?

It centres on the Irish

language, use of the Irish language

0:05:300:05:34

on signs and so on.

I agree with

Joanne, it indicates what an arm

0:05:340:05:40

lock the DUP has the Conservative

government in. They can do whatever

0:05:400:05:45

they like, they'll still get their

billion pounds to be part of the

0:05:450:05:50

Tory voting system. And they can

really play hardball over the Irish

0:05:500:05:55

language. They say the Unionist

community is horrified by the idea

0:05:550:05:59

Britishness would be hollowed out if

you got Irish street signs and gave

0:05:590:06:05

it equal respect given to the

English language. They are able to

0:06:050:06:08

take a hardline stance on this. The

British government can't do a thing.

0:06:080:06:12

The Metro, Jean-Claude Juncker

against Johnson. Sounds like a

0:06:120:06:17

tennis match at Wimbledon. Boxing

match.

More like boxing.

Boris

0:06:170:06:26

Johnson might have hoped the speech

he made today would have made a

0:06:260:06:30

bigger splash on the front pages. It

was very widely trailed so it's been

0:06:300:06:37

covered all the day-to-day. In a

nutshell, this was Boris Johnson

0:06:370:06:42

making a positive liberal outraging

speech about Brexit. At the same

0:06:420:06:46

time accusing junker of wanting to

set up a European superstate. He

0:06:460:06:53

said that's not the case. --

Juncker.

It sounded like a replay of

0:06:530:06:59

the referendum campaign, lots of

stuff about taking back control. The

0:06:590:07:04

old hoary cliche about the

superstate which, as you say,

0:07:040:07:07

Juncker dismissed as total nonsense.

There was a very nice cartoon in the

0:07:070:07:12

London Evening Standard of Boris

presenting himself with a bouquet of

0:07:120:07:16

roses, which spelt out the word me.

It's all about him. Everything Boris

0:07:160:07:21

does is not about Brexit or the

greater good, in my opinion, of the

0:07:210:07:26

country. It's about him and his

ambition. I don't like him.

The

0:07:260:07:32

Florida shooting we've been

reporting this evening, you are

0:07:320:07:35

talking about late-breaking stories,

another late-breaking story. In a

0:07:350:07:40

sense we were hearing from our

Washington correspondent, this is

0:07:400:07:44

the 19th school shooting this year

in the United States. It's

0:07:440:07:47

extraordinary how many there have

been.

It's become commonplace hasn't

0:07:470:07:52

it, it's absolutely horrifying. It

is one of those things that despite

0:07:520:07:56

what people often refer to as the

Americanisation of British culture

0:07:560:08:01

in many ways, this is something we

still look at completely discounts.

0:08:010:08:07

We can't understand how this is

happening, how it is allowed to

0:08:070:08:13

happen for a hobby but take it for

granted. Although we broadly speak

0:08:130:08:18

the same language, it's something

where I think there is a complete

0:08:180:08:21

lack of understanding.

Donald Trump

This is

a former student only 19 years old,

0:08:380:08:39

had an assault rifle, a serious

weapon. Seven dead and up to 50

0:08:390:08:44

injured. It pains me to say it, and

I really choke on this, I agree with

0:08:440:08:48

Piers Morgan about this. He said

America has to try and crack down on

0:08:480:08:58

it gun laws. He said that on CNN and

lost his job. It's their

0:08:580:09:02

constitutional right to bear arms

and they would not have a Brit

0:09:020:09:05

telling them otherwise.

The Metro

front-page. Homelessness, shaven, a

0:09:050:09:17

Reach shame a homeless man has died

outside the House of Commons.

It's a

0:09:170:09:24

tragedy, a very sad story. There is

a certain grim inevitability to the

0:09:240:09:33

fact that if people sleep out night

after night in what has been

0:09:330:09:38

extremely cold and unpleasant

conditions, that in some cases could

0:09:380:09:44

prove fatal.

Homelessness on the

rise.

I agree it's a great tragedy

0:09:440:09:50

for this person. It does underline

there is a real rise in

0:09:500:09:55

homelessness. Apparently there has

been an 18% increase in rough

0:09:550:09:59

sleepers in London since 2016. This

sad death brings that home. How many

0:09:590:10:05

homeless people you see on the

streets of London now. It's very

0:10:050:10:09

shocking.

The express and in a

couple of the other papers, the

0:10:090:10:14

story about processed food being a

cancer danger, it takes, crisps,

0:10:140:10:20

pizza, chicken nuggets.

There's

nothing left for me to eat,

0:10:200:10:27

disaster!

It sounds like James's

daily diet.

I'm distraught about

0:10:270:10:32

this story.

You'd better stop soon.

This is quite a scientific study

0:10:320:10:40

showing that in our fast lives...

Is

there anything surprising about

0:10:400:10:45

this? Nuevo Arcangel we already know

processed food is cancer-causing.

0:10:450:10:49

This is a new study. That's why it's

on the front pages. It's a new

0:10:490:10:55

study, quite a broad ranging study.

Well over 100,000 people were

0:10:550:11:02

surveyed by French researchers. It's

gone on over an eight-year period so

0:11:020:11:09

clearly it's a very well resourced

and therapies of research. It says

0:11:090:11:17

in the Times version of the story

that a court of this number of

0:11:170:11:23

people over the eight-year period it

is the most ultra processed foods

0:11:230:11:28

were 23% more likely to get any type

of cancer. I just wonder whether...

0:11:280:11:36

It's useful I'm sure for researchers

to be able to specify in these

0:11:360:11:41

terms, but in terms of what I think

we're being taught about all the

0:11:410:11:46

time, this is not actually

surprising.

Know, however I'm going

0:11:460:11:51

to stop eating entirely so next time

I want I'll turn sideways and nobody

0:11:510:11:54

will be able to see me, I'll be

wasting away.

The messages to cook

0:11:540:11:59

your own food, don't just get...

We

live in a fast society, fast food as

0:11:590:12:05

part of it.

We don't feel we have

time to cook.

People use eating on

0:12:050:12:10

the bus, the tube, the train,

everyone is on the run the whole

0:12:100:12:14

time. Fast food and processed food

plays into the culture. I'm not

0:12:140:12:18

saying it's right, but it's the

culture that everything is done in a

0:12:180:12:22

rush. Being busy is the new cool,

isn't it. You don't say I sat around

0:12:220:12:27

twiddling my thumbs today, oh my

gosh, I'm so busy.

Sorry to

0:12:270:12:31

interrupt. We haven't got a lot of

times I've got to cutting.

0:12:310:12:38

You should be on question Time!

Surely there is an element of common

0:12:390:12:44

sense about incorporating some fast

food...

It is a balance. Well said.

0:12:440:12:55

Last story of the day, the Guardian,

the vast majority of university

0:12:550:12:59

leaders are involved in setting

their own pay, is that a surprise?

0:12:590:13:03

Actually if you see the amount they

are paid perhaps it's not a

0:13:030:13:08

surprise. In terms of accountability

I think it is rather shocking. This

0:13:080:13:13

is a piece of journalism the

Guardian have done using a Freedom

0:13:130:13:19

of information inquiry. I think they

are quite right to expose this, it

0:13:190:13:24

ties in with the government having

brought in some new recommendations.

0:13:240:13:30

Following public outcry. And press

outcry about the amount of money

0:13:300:13:36

certain vice chancellors were being

paid.

They are on 300,000, that sort

0:13:360:13:40

of salary.

The argument was they

were in some sort of marketplace but

0:13:400:13:46

it isn't really because universities

are heavily subsidised by the

0:13:460:13:49

government. The government is quite

right to require some feedback on

0:13:490:13:54

whether money is going.

I agree,

accountability should be top of the

0:13:540:13:59

list. 95% of university leaders are

part of their own remuneration

0:13:590:14:04

committee. As someone who has three

children at University, I'm

0:14:040:14:08

outraged. I'm living in a garden

shed now because of the amount I'm

0:14:080:14:13

paying...

Are you paying their fees

question though, I'm paying their

0:14:130:14:18

accommodation.

I'm living in the

garden shed. That's my personal

0:14:180:14:21

life!

Do you grow your own

vegetables?

I have to kick the

0:14:210:14:26

crisps and pizzas anyway. The about

students have to pay and the debt

0:14:260:14:29

they are getting into, my oldest

owes 50 grand.

We will leave with

0:14:290:14:33

the image of you eating fast food in

a garden shed.

Sleep tight.

Don't

0:14:330:14:41

have nightmares. Don't forget you

can see the front pages of the

0:14:410:14:44

papers online now BBC News website.

Therefore you seven days a week/

0:14:440:14:51

papers. If you missed the programme

any evening you can watch it later

0:14:510:14:54

on BBC iPlayer. Thanks again, Joanne

and James. Goodbye from us.
