Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow.
With me are journalist Yasmin
Alibhai-Brown and Penny Smith,
who is a journalist and broadcaster.
We might have trouble!
Many of tomorrow's front
pages are already in.

The Observer takes stock
of the financial cost the wintry
weather has taken on the country,

The Sunday Times leads
on an investigation into how
internet giants may be implicated
in the trafficking
of vulnerable women.
The paper also looks ahead
to tomorrow night's Oscars
with a picture of Gary Oldman,
who has the Best Actor nod
for playing the part
of Winston Churchill
The actor also takes centre stage
on the front of The Telegraph
alongside the paper's top story,
which looks at the way BBC
presenters' salaries are taxed.
The top story for The Mail
is the latest gossip
from within Theresa May's Cabinet.

the internet giants, Number 10

wrong, Fiona? Do you want that? This
is the top story. Number 10
considering new laws on sex
trafficking. How can internet giants
like Facebook and Google become

search engines and that is where
people find these brothels and that
is the way that they are profiting

back to say, free speech.

really about, the whole thing of the

censorship. But increasingly, I
think that it is unsustainable
because it is the terrorism

the deep internet with the most
horrific things are being peddled.

these brothels. They are enabling?
They are not developing a method of
regulation, I suppose.

incredible things and yet we cannot

think it is. How do they, with all
the will in the world, harness all
of this? It is so enormous, the
scale of it.
These men are very
clever, if they wanted to, they
would develop some technical way.
And they are, doing something with
the Isis websites and so on. I think
they have... It is just where
newspapers and broadcasters are, you

At that point,

Conservatives again, the Mail on

again? The Mail on Sunday, we have
these augmented reality graphics and
yet we are holding up some paper! It
is here. Boris in new dirty tricks

accused of leaking a letter that
Boris Johnson wrote, playing down
the impact of a heart border between
the Republic of Ireland and Northern
Yes, tittle tattle, it does
not deserve three pages. You just
have to say Boris and it is like
this lightning rod, everything gets
very exciting. This is about the
difficulties of saying to the world,
to the party and everything, that
speech Theresa May made, it bonded
everybody, including Remainers, and
it was not a bad speech, not bad,
but the deep conflicts within the
country and within our own party
will not be easily fixed.

be grown up about this and say, we
are poles apart, let's come
together. And at the picture of
Boris and it is like the Beast from
the East because he is in Budapest,
holding up that letter. Which is not
the leaked letter at the centre of
the dirty tricks row but it is
allegedly the speech from the
Mansion House, where he is allegedly
giving the thumbs up.
He has also
said, what did he say? This is a
nonsense claim from an anonymous
source. The denials will climb in.
It does make you realise, these are
all available to fights within the
party and the plotters, there is
nothing like conservative potters.

I spoke to Bernard Jenkin yesterday
about the speech and he was quite
content with that.
Jacob Rees-Mogg said that

guys? They are very outspoken, if
they don't like what she is doing.
We're coming to the stage... Very
little time left. For the
practicalities. I don't believe, I
really don't, that there is... It
was a good speech. But these guys, I
would not ever want to be leader of
the Tory Party like I would ever be!
You never know! Stranger things have
happened. The Telegraph. Here you
go. I have this extra job to do. The
stars turn on BBC over tax stitcher.
This is confiscated but it has to do
with the fact that a lot of
presenters were encouraged, or they
would say, forced, to set up
personal service companies in the
late 1990s and early 2000s if they
wanted to engage with the BBC. And
it has to do with whether that was
an appropriate way for them to have
run their business affairs.
don't understand, the Telegraph has
gone big on this... What does the
BBC Get Out of it?
National Insurance contributions.
That is quite a lot of
money. I think a lot of presenters
and other people have done this for
their own reasons.
They also save,
the BBC... ISA and it was also about
saving because you don't have to...
If you are not staff you don't have
to pay anything else.
It is very
expensive to employ people because
you have to pay National Insurance,

It is very
confusing. There is a feeling or
sense that HMRC was content with
this and they are not content with
it and now the rules mean that HMRC

affected by this! Full disclosure!
This is a fiendishly conjugated tax
situation that people find
themselves in and they will have to
try to unpack this and if they were
in the wrong tax vehicle, the wrong
tax status or employment status,
they could end up having to back pay

This is about how

the problem is, there seem to be

seem to be able to exploit so they
can do fewer affordable households

The London Mayor has been
quite strong on this because he has
seen through some of these loopholes
and not only are these big
developers not building enough
affordable housing but they are
basing the affordable on something
that is completely wrong because as
prices go up, they put the
affordable at an impossible place.

able to afford them. I think there
