middle of the night we should get

the definitive results but we expect

0:00:000:00:00

a hung parliament here in this

Italian general election.

0:00:000:00:12

We are all sitting very straight

because I have been warned about my

0:00:220:00:27

posture! Welcome to our look ahead

to what the papers will be bringing

0:00:270:00:30

tomorrow. We probably would very

snooty. Caroline frost the

0:00:300:00:33

journalist is here as is

parliamentary journalist, the right

0:00:330:00:40

things. Many of the front pages

already in come at the Financial

0:00:400:00:47

Times features a warning from Donald

Trump's most senior trade adviser

0:00:470:00:51

there will be no exemptions from

proposed metal import tariffs. The

0:00:510:00:56

Times also leads on tensions over

proposed charges for Stelling steel

0:00:560:01:00

to America boxing on Theresa May's

opposition to the President's plan.

0:01:000:01:03

On the front of the i reports that

US lobbyists are urging the Metro

0:01:030:01:14

leads on the primers to promising to

overhaul planning rules to

0:01:140:01:18

kick-start what it calls a housing

revolution. The express reports

0:01:180:01:22

millions are facing an expected tax

bills after not taking advice before

0:01:220:01:26

accessing a pension pots. It also

carries a picture of Sir Roger

0:01:260:01:30

Bannister who has died at the age of

88. The Guardian carries claims that

0:01:300:01:35

the government missed an opportunity

to juice losses at Carillion. It

0:01:350:01:38

also features allegations that

Bradley Wiggins and Team Sky abused

0:01:380:01:43

doping rules to secure his 2012 Tour

de France. Let's begin with trade

0:01:430:01:50

because it is everywhere. This is

the times, Theresa May telling

0:01:500:01:53

Donald Trump not to launch trade

war, tariffs risk devastating

0:01:530:01:57

British Steel industry. The other

day he was seen trade wars are good.

0:01:570:02:01

He seems to be somewhat changeable.

He is effectively igniting talk of a

0:02:010:02:10

trade war by saying he will impose

tariffs on exports, sorry imports

0:02:100:02:14

into the United States of steel and

aluminium. This is concerning for

0:02:140:02:19

the British government who have

presented Brexit as an opportunity

0:02:190:02:22

for Britain to be a champion of

global free trade and countries like

0:02:220:02:26

America, Canada and Mexico have been

working for decades any free trade

0:02:260:02:31

area. Trump taking a different tack,

saying he wants to make America

0:02:310:02:35

great again and that involves

putting America first and in that

0:02:350:02:38

mind it involves putting tariffs on

goods coming in he feels are harming

0:02:380:02:41

American industry.

You can imagine

his supporters will say this is what

0:02:410:02:49

we voted for.

Absolutely he came

into power on this platform of

0:02:490:02:55

protectionism and what the EU have

prepared a list of retaliatory

0:02:550:02:59

tariffs which will encompass things

like Harley-Davidson, bourbon

0:02:590:03:06

whiskey, I am listed bourbon

biscuits, and these things they have

0:03:060:03:13

said that if that happens they will

start thinking about the car

0:03:130:03:16

industry so this risks escalating

into a tit-for-tat protectionism on

0:03:160:03:20

both sides of the Atlantic. That

will leave everyone in a spot of

0:03:200:03:24

bother.

Similar sort of story to do

with trade but not tariffs, i, a

0:03:240:03:32

push to sell Cornish pasties from

America in the UK. We have certain

0:03:320:03:40

products which are sort of protected

because they are associated with

0:03:400:03:44

certain parts of the country.

We

disagree about this because it

0:03:440:03:49

transpires he has a higher taste

than me, I am a blue stripe lady

0:03:490:03:53

myself.

What does that mean?

It

means I don't mind if something

0:03:530:04:00

doesn't have a brand on it.

Like

buying generic goods?

Yeah. If it

0:04:000:04:11

looks like a nice strong cheese and

smells and tastes like a cheese that

0:04:110:04:16

suits me, I realise certain people

don't feel the same.

This comes back

0:04:160:04:20

to the argument about Brexit and

what it will mean for the UK. This

0:04:200:04:23

is a US lobbyist has realised that

some travel trade deal may be on the

0:04:230:04:30

cards with the UK and they have got

a very early to say all this stuff

0:04:300:04:34

about protecting the Scotch whiskey

and Cumberland sausage you need to

0:04:340:04:37

drop all that and that could mean

America could introduce cheaper

0:04:370:04:40

exports and that again could make

food cheaper but our Environment

0:04:400:04:44

Secretary Michael Gove has said

there will be no fall in UK food

0:04:440:04:48

standards. A lot of American food

cannot be imported because it does

0:04:480:04:53

not meet EU standards.

The other

thing is manufacturers, if you are

0:04:530:04:59

producing stilton and you don't want

anyone else in the world to be able

0:04:590:05:02

to make something branded as

authentic. I picked stilton because

0:05:020:05:09

it is made in Leicestershire.

Here

is the point, a free trade argument

0:05:090:05:15

that would be that if your stilton

is the highest quality in the world

0:05:150:05:18

it is a premium product and you

should be able to tell sell it three

0:05:180:05:23

or four times what the local, not

very good, pretend cheese which is

0:05:230:05:27

not stilton but is branded as, you

should be able to sell your quality

0:05:270:05:32

product anywhere in the world at a

higher premium but the EU has

0:05:320:05:36

brought in territorial designations

and protections because they don't

0:05:360:05:38

think that works.

Other types of

cheese are available!

If you have in

0:05:380:05:49

America you would notice a

significant difference.

And

0:05:490:05:54

chocolate too. In the Metro, a

housing revolution. Quarters will be

0:05:540:06:01

imposed on councils that fell to

build as many homes as the

0:06:010:06:03

government thinks they should.

It

seems a reasonable solution to be an

0:06:030:06:08

ongoing crisis in this country. We

know there are not enough properties

0:06:080:06:14

to house people and no Theresa May

has put forward what seems to be a

0:06:140:06:18

perfectly reasonable solution on

paper which is to spread the

0:06:180:06:22

responsibility into different

councils so each will have the make

0:06:220:06:25

their own quarters and build

accordingly.

It's a lot of houses to

0:06:250:06:31

build and there are so many barriers

to getting them built, land being

0:06:310:06:36

held and not developed.

Land banking

is a major issue and there is a

0:06:360:06:42

concern people like Network Rail who

are a major landowner in the country

0:06:420:06:46

are not freeing up enough land and

it's a similar issue with Transport

0:06:460:06:49

for London. But the brass neck of

this woman, it is unbelievable. She

0:06:490:06:54

stands up in March 2018 and accuses

councils of not doing enough when

0:06:540:06:59

4/2 decades councils have been told

to sell council houses but not build

0:06:590:07:03

replacements, that is why we have

such a horrific crisis.

Is it about

0:07:030:07:09

the council building houses or is it

making sure developers get planning

0:07:090:07:12

permission.

That is also part of it,

councils are restrained from

0:07:120:07:17

building themselves so it ends up

being developers and the third issue

0:07:170:07:21

we have particularly in London it is

not matter if you build these houses

0:07:210:07:24

they will be bought by foreign

investors as property is investment.

0:07:240:07:28

This is not a central London issue,

it's becoming a problem in the outer

0:07:280:07:33

boroughs of London. Imposing a

quarter get you a nice headline but

0:07:330:07:41

let's see how many we get.

Overseas

developer buying this real estate

0:07:410:07:48

and then leaving it vacant.

I think

bringing in ownership rules is far

0:07:480:07:54

too radical for the Theresa May

government.

It's also against the

0:07:540:07:58

free market.

But once we leave the

EU we might be able to make our own

0:07:580:08:03

rules!

That is what sovereignty is

all right. Roger Bannister has died

0:08:030:08:12

aged 88 and this extraordinary

outpouring of admiration for a man

0:08:120:08:15

about his achievements.

The

difference between sporting icons of

0:08:150:08:26

yesteryear when it was not even a

full-time job, we know the method of

0:08:260:08:31

completing the four-minute mile, the

first man to ever do it but what is

0:08:310:08:34

part of that is the casually he went

down to Oxford, it seemed like a

0:08:340:08:39

good idea and he was determined to

do it because he lost out on medals

0:08:390:08:42

in Helsinki. He had pacemakers who

he was always absolutely intent on

0:08:420:08:51

sharing the credit and he just

carried on his working life and

0:08:510:08:55

ended up deleting the majority of

his professional working life to

0:08:550:08:59

medicine and he said he was more

proud of everything he achieved in

0:08:590:09:02

medicine. It's the right stuff, it's

the equivalent of someone like Neil

0:09:020:09:09

Armstrong, a quiet hero.

So many

people who are now, have gone on,

0:09:090:09:17

Tanni Grey-Thompson, elephantine and

Olympic medallist seeing how much he

0:09:170:09:20

inspired her when she was growing

up.

The interesting thing about the

0:09:200:09:26

story is that it's a lens through

which we can see how much sport has

0:09:260:09:29

changed, you talk about the casually

he went about it but there was not a

0:09:290:09:36

lot of sponsorship or training

pressure on him which is what is

0:09:360:09:40

expected of athletes these days.

Just look at issues, very low-tech

0:09:400:09:44

but it didn't stop him.

They have

become iconic sporting motifs which

0:09:440:09:51

are imitated throughout the world.

The way it works. Let's look at the

0:09:510:10:01

Oscars. That is happening tonight in

Hollywood. Here we have a picture of

0:10:010:10:05

Margot Robbie nominated for her

Petrillo Tonya Harding. You have

0:10:050:10:12

seen that film, issue worth the nod.

Definitely, in 2010I interviewed her

0:10:120:10:22

on the set of neighbours, we all

said she has got it, whether she

0:10:220:10:26

does next she has got it and who she

is on the Oscars red carpet with the

0:10:260:10:30

best actress nod. But she's up

against a strong field not least

0:10:300:10:34

Frances McDormand and she is the

favourite and she wins it will be

0:10:340:10:40

her second Oscar.

Do you stay up and

watch it?

No. Another one of the big

0:10:400:10:51

ones is The Darkest Our, but as a

Parliament geek I found it very

0:10:510:10:57

difficult because it's full of

mistakes.

Is it?

Of course it is, it

0:10:570:11:03

is a Hollywood movie.

It's got a

different fuel this year.

Yes, it

0:11:030:11:10

leaves a nasty taste in my mouth, I

think they are having to balance

0:11:100:11:14

this now, the ladies most of all how

to step forward and the herd, the

0:11:140:11:19

badges on display overnight, we will

see anti-gun freedoms, also to

0:11:190:11:23

things being discussed, but these

actresses have to do is conspire

0:11:230:11:29

that this is the fairy tale worth

celebrating. It's a bit of a

0:11:290:11:34

tightrope that all these stars are

walking.

We will be back later, a

0:11:340:11:40

few more, it was a rather short

review this hour because of coming

0:11:400:11:44

on late but back again and have

passed 11 for another look at the

0:11:440:11:51

newspapers, coming up next, the

weather.
