for now. -- but from us it is

goodbye for now.

0:00:000:00:02

Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers will be

0:00:160:00:19

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:190:00:20

With me are Martin Lipton,

Deputy Sports Editor at The Sun,

0:00:200:00:23

and Benedicte Paviote, correspondent

with France 24 and President

0:00:230:00:25

of the Foreign Press Association.

0:00:250:00:34

Welcome to you both. Lovely to have

you here.

0:00:340:00:36

Many of tomorrow's front

pages are already in.

0:00:360:00:38

The FT Weekend leads

with a deepening rift between the US

0:00:380:00:41

and EU over steel tariffs

and proposed changes to digital tax.

0:00:410:00:46

The Daily Mirror says police

are investigating 12 new claims

0:00:460:00:48

of child sex abuse carried out

by gangs in Telford.

0:00:480:00:53

The I has more on the launch

of a murder inquiry after the death

0:00:530:00:56

of a Russian exile in London.

0:00:560:00:58

The Telegraph also has that story.

0:00:580:00:59

It says Nikolai Glushkov

was found strangled to death

0:00:590:01:01

in his own home.

0:01:010:01:05

The Express reports on comments made

by Prince Harry over defence cuts.

0:01:050:01:12

During a visit to the Army air were

a where he trained as a helicopter

0:01:120:01:17

pilot.

0:01:170:01:18

The Daily Mail has reaction

from the foster parents

0:01:180:01:20

of Ahmed Hassan after he was found

guilty of trying to bomb

0:01:200:01:22

a train in London.

0:01:230:01:24

The Times reports on a second sex

scandal to hit Oxfam

0:01:240:01:26

concerning the conduct

of its staff in Haiti.

0:01:260:01:28

So developments in the Russia story

still making the front pages.

0:01:280:01:31

Let's have a closer look.

0:01:310:01:37

We begin with the eye. Murder

inquiry after exiled Russian tycoon

0:01:370:01:42

dies in London. He appears to have

died from some compression to the

0:01:420:01:47

neck, suggesting he would've

strangled.

Indeed. It is interesting

0:01:470:01:53

because not just UK media but

international media are reporting on

0:01:530:01:57

this almost nonstop and the

implications. Nobody knows quite

0:01:570:02:00

where it's going to go. This is the

death on Monday and in outside

0:02:000:02:08

London. Interesting because a very

great friend and business partner of

0:02:080:02:13

Boris Berezovsky, himself found in

2013 in his bathroom on and Nikolai

0:02:130:02:20

never believed that was a suicide.

They were both prominent critics of

0:02:200:02:24

Vladimir Putin, and of course it's

important to underline that

0:02:240:02:30

counterterrorism police are now

investigating his death. On Monday

0:02:300:02:33

we were clearly told that was not

suspect and now as a result of a

0:02:330:02:37

special postmortem this compression

of the neck and of course let's

0:02:370:02:41

remember there has been previous

criticism made here in the UK by the

0:02:410:02:45

media and others that there was not

enough investigation that the police

0:02:450:02:50

resources have not been big enough.

14 deaths now being investigated as

0:02:500:02:55

a result of Amber Rudd's statement

on Tuesday before the announcement

0:02:550:03:01

of sanctions. A real ratcheting up,

all of this, while we await the

0:03:010:03:05

sanctions that eventually President

Vladimir Putin is going to implement

0:03:050:03:10

and announced.

We believe they are

coming, there may be some diplomatic

0:03:100:03:17

tit-for-tat expulsions as well but

it's just a matter of time according

0:03:170:03:19

to Sergey Lavrov when he was

speaking earlier in the day as well.

0:03:190:03:23

They are saying no evidence at the

moment with the poisonings in

0:03:230:03:28

Salisbury which of course have

dominated the news in the earlier

0:03:280:03:30

part of the week. But of course it

does bring our attention back to

0:03:300:03:36

dissidents of Russians in exile in

this country and there'll be many

0:03:360:03:40

more we understand from commentators

who will be fearful now.

Yes. The

0:03:400:03:46

other week, but that, but based on a

book that was a documentary

0:03:460:03:53

effectively, chronicling of Russian

involvement worldwide. There are a

0:03:530:03:57

lot of people who were at one point

allies of the Kremlin who fell out

0:03:570:04:00

with the Kremlin like this guy,

Nikolai Glushkov for whatever

0:04:000:04:04

reason. And I think there is no...

There is a link between this

0:04:040:04:13

apparent potential murderer and the

incident in Salisbury. But the same

0:04:130:04:17

guiding hand one fears may be behind

both in terms of the Russian state

0:04:170:04:22

does not like people who are rented

-- renegades, who turned their back

0:04:220:04:27

on mother Russia and what it's

about. If you fall out in the court

0:04:270:04:30

of King Vladimir you are in trouble.

I have to declare an interest. I was

0:04:300:04:35

supposed to be spending five weeks

in Moscow this summer, is going to

0:04:350:04:39

be a bundle of...

Look at the travel

advisory that's been updated. There

0:04:390:04:46

is a real fear of there being

anti-British sentiment and of course

0:04:460:04:52

what is interesting is the next

article we will look at.

You tell us

0:04:520:04:56

what it is.

Boris Johnson in the FT,

there is a statement that he made.

0:04:560:05:03

The headline is something he blames

a row with Moscow by claiming Putin

0:05:030:05:07

ordered by poisonings. He's

referring thereto the attempted

0:05:070:05:14

murders is being treated now because

they're both still alive yet

0:05:140:05:16

fighting for their lives. What I

think is interesting about this,

0:05:160:05:24

certainly is the fact that Boris

Johnson has really tried in that

0:05:240:05:27

statement with the Polish minister

next to him in a war bunker, which I

0:05:270:05:32

think was quite interesting to

differentiate the targeted

0:05:320:05:40

motivated, the attempted murder,

that target measured sanctions

0:05:400:05:47

announced by Theresa May on

Wednesday which we understand is the

0:05:470:05:48

first phase, and the Russian people,

that he does not want there to beat

0:05:480:05:54

Russia phobia, and of course that's

a very real fear. -- to be Russia

0:05:540:05:59

phobia. I think it's interesting

that Downing Street did not decline

0:05:590:06:02

to comment on the wording of the

foreign secretary and the FT here I

0:06:020:06:08

think words it quite well when it

says Britain had previously on the

0:06:080:06:12

attached unspecified responsibility

to Vladimir Putin and indeed when

0:06:120:06:17

the Prime Minister was in Salisbury

on her unannounced visit yesterday,

0:06:170:06:21

she said it is tragic that Mr Putin

has chosen to act in this way, but

0:06:210:06:27

as the FT quite rightly point out,

we are not sure if she was referring

0:06:270:06:32

to the attack on the family or on

Russia's responds verbally. Sergey

0:06:320:06:38

Lavrov and others calling it

fantasy, some theories in Moscow

0:06:380:06:40

saying this is Britain that weakened

by Brexit trying to distract.

This

0:06:400:06:46

is why its so interesting. We are

used to diplomatic language being

0:06:460:06:49

incredibly restrained, because we

know that eight varies -- a can so

0:06:490:06:56

very easily be ratcheted up. For

Boris Johnson to have used this kind

0:06:560:07:00

of language so specifically and

targeted to Vladimir Putin is

0:07:000:07:04

extremely fast extremely significant

in diplomatic terms.

Absolutely.

0:07:040:07:08

There is the counterargument to this

situation with regards to whether

0:07:080:07:12

Putin was directly responsible for

ordering this is maybe it is that

0:07:120:07:19

who will rid me of this turbulent

place? People take him at his word

0:07:190:07:24

and his wish becomes their

obligation almost. Here we have

0:07:240:07:29

quite clearly the foreign secretary

making it abundantly clear that in

0:07:290:07:32

the view of the British government

this was a direct act targeted by

0:07:320:07:37

the Russian head of state. That is a

very serious charge and allegation.

0:07:370:07:43

From a foreign secretary.

This is

the official British government

0:07:430:07:48

policy. To be fair I don't think too

many people outside of the orbit of

0:07:480:07:52

Jeremy Corbyn momentum and Nigel

Farage rather bizarre bedfellows

0:07:520:07:57

would necessarily take any issue

with what Boris Johnson here has

0:07:570:08:00

that. I think this would probably be

one of those statements which the

0:08:000:08:03

vast majority of people up and down

the country here is active of their

0:08:030:08:07

political perspective would agree

with. It does seem that way, but the

0:08:070:08:12

one thing you got to remember with

Russia is if you are shaking sticks

0:08:120:08:16

they've got the bigger stick, and

therein lies... How far can Britain

0:08:160:08:23

go with this very dangerous bear in

the room?

I want to, if I may add

0:08:230:08:28

two words. Global support. The FT

refers to that and that joint

0:08:280:08:32

communique yesterday of Germany, the

US and France is very important and

0:08:320:08:36

of course what the government,

ministers have been doing in the UN,

0:08:360:08:42

British ambassador and the support

of the US ambassador, that has all

0:08:420:08:48

been extremely important at the UN

and also Neto. And there are clearly

0:08:480:08:53

more sanctions up Theresa May's

sleep and also we will see what the

0:08:530:09:01

global support -- sleeve. These are

very good intention and words and

0:09:010:09:05

beginning of actions, but let's see

what the Russian response is. This

0:09:050:09:07

could ratchet up so quickly.

Let's

look at the daily Mail. A betrayal

0:09:070:09:13

beyond belief. This is following the

trial of the man Essonne -- I'm

0:09:130:09:22

guilty of attempted murder after

setting up that device on the tube

0:09:220:09:25

train at person screen. We now know

that he was part of the prevent

0:09:250:09:30

programme which is supposed to be...

The radicalising people. Yes, the

0:09:300:09:37

evidence that came out in court was

that he told officials when he

0:09:370:09:41

arrived in the UK two years ago that

he had been kidnapped by Isis and

0:09:410:09:45

trained to kill by them. Even

claimed in court that actually it

0:09:450:09:50

was a fabrication he concocted to

persuade them that he needed to be

0:09:500:09:55

given asylum. The issue here is what

messages were passed on to the home

0:09:550:10:03

office, the police, to the security

services about this man who quite

0:10:030:10:11

clearly, and a guilty verdict of the

court which did not take very long,

0:10:110:10:15

there is with judgement, he was

planning mass murder. It's as simple

0:10:150:10:20

as that. He put a bomb on a train

which was a commuter train in

0:10:200:10:29

rush-hour with as I know young

children going to school, people

0:10:290:10:34

going to work, indiscriminate murder

it was on his mind. And he somehow

0:10:340:10:39

slipped through the net. It's a

legitimate question, you hear that

0:10:390:10:44

his foster parents knew nothing.

These are foster parents who had

0:10:440:10:49

taken in dozens and dozens of

children over the years.

Here they

0:10:490:10:53

are asking for donations because

they must be devastated. That bomb

0:10:530:10:58

was made in their kitchen -- they

are asking for explanations.

They

0:10:580:11:02

have this raid Saturday morning at

their house and they had no

0:11:020:11:05

understanding what was going on.

Armed police turning up at your

0:11:050:11:08

front door.

He was busy at Dover

about to be arrested unbeknownst to

0:11:080:11:13

him and the foster parents were in

the house and the police did not

0:11:130:11:16

know so they went the full scale of

getting mornings outside. There he

0:11:160:11:19

scary.

--

very scary.

It raises a

lot of questions about the merits

0:11:190:11:26

and pitfalls of the prevent

programme, but as many commentators

0:11:260:11:29

have said to us tonight it requires

that individual to want to change,

0:11:290:11:34

to want to turn away from whatever

attempts to brainwash them and be

0:11:340:11:40

neighborly them have gone ahead. We

are struggling a little bit, let me

0:11:400:11:44

tell you. The reason you are looking

at me rather than our gorgeous cast

0:11:440:11:47

is that both of the screens are

playing up and is not very nice for

0:11:470:11:51

you to look at I'm afraid. Sorry

about that. Try not to look at it

0:11:510:11:55

too much. I will stick to the

neighbours if we can. If I could

0:11:550:11:59

check the timing from you in the

gallery. Seven minutes, OK. Let's

0:11:590:12:04

move on and look at the express.

Page number two. We will not check

0:12:040:12:11

the Lloris at Dover says Grayling.

This will come as a bit of a shock

0:12:110:12:15

to the EU 27 that that after Brexit,

just come in, go out. There'll be no

0:12:150:12:20

text.

--

there'll be no checks.

This

is extraordinary. I watched your

0:12:200:12:28

earlier interview.

0:12:280:12:33

It seems that the transport

Secretary Chris Grayling have said

0:12:330:12:37

that we do not check the Lloris now,

we will not check them in Dover in

0:12:370:12:42

the future. I'm clear it cannot

happen. We will maintain a

0:12:420:12:45

free-flowing border at Dover. That

sounds like an invitation to put

0:12:450:12:50

anything on the loris. You don't

just have nice people watching

0:12:500:12:53

television. What happened to take

back control. This is quite

0:12:530:12:57

extraordinary. Is he saying this is

just from the British side which I

0:12:570:13:01

think is what he's saying, because

on the French side, this is the

0:13:010:13:06

beginning of the rest of the EE you

and the point is once you are in the

0:13:060:13:11

EU and that is which occurs many

things Britain was not in, the euro,

0:13:110:13:17

Britain is not in. Once the problem

the French will have to carry these

0:13:170:13:22

checks out. That has an economic

impact, and it's incredibly complex

0:13:220:13:33

to set up.

Politically when it

looked like it is France's problem

0:13:330:13:37

now. The mainland Europe's problem

now.

The thing is, something I read

0:13:370:13:44

today and I believe it was confirmed

by the Department of transport that

0:13:440:13:47

it would appear that post Brexit

British driving licenses will not be

0:13:470:13:53

valid in the European Union and one

presumes vice versa. Unless there is

0:13:530:13:58

a special permit. If you cannot

legally drive in the UK, if this

0:13:580:14:03

does happen and come to pass, you

will have to show that permit. is a

0:14:030:14:12

border check. There'll have to be

some of checking. -- some degree of

0:14:120:14:18

checking.

Someone said this is not

true. There are checks, so I think

0:14:180:14:24

that the Union for the people who do

actually checked lorries are going

0:14:240:14:28

you don't even know what's going on

at the border and you are the

0:14:280:14:31

transport secretary. Actually this

shows the huge complexity of this

0:14:310:14:37

and as for the frictionless border

on Northern Ireland, that ain't

0:14:370:14:41

over.

No, it is not. The daily

telegraph older workers face a tax

0:14:410:14:47

hikes to boost NHS funding. Is this

a bit of a retread of their old

0:14:470:14:53

national insurance increased which

were moved in and dropped?

This

0:14:530:14:59

morning I read this addition there

would be a 1% potential increase in

0:14:590:15:02

the national insurance to pay for

extra spending in the health

0:15:020:15:06

service. Clearly there are different

views within cabinet because this is

0:15:060:15:11

another proposal suggesting that the

burden of this extra money should

0:15:110:15:16

come from older workers,

particularly it says here pensioners

0:15:160:15:18

working past 65. They should not

have to pay, contributions,

0:15:180:15:25

obviously they don't at this

juncture. And it will raise £2

0:15:250:15:31

billion per year. Of course the

Brexit argument about 350 million

0:15:310:15:37

per week which obviously we know

they have shied away from even

0:15:370:15:39

though it was on a very nice, shiny

bus, is an expectation of many that

0:15:390:15:46

voted for Brexit that there would be

additional funding and there's this

0:15:460:15:49

argument of how will we find this

funding and you are the easiest

0:15:490:15:52

target? The older, more wealthy

workers. They thought that was a

0:15:520:15:56

brilliant idea when he came to think

in the social cost that is in the

0:15:560:16:00

manifesto. That was a disaster.

It

will not be long before someone

0:16:000:16:04

claims age discrimination if they go

ahead with this.

Absolutely. That is

0:16:040:16:08

not sound like a viable plan, plus

if one looks at the average age of a

0:16:080:16:13

conservative voter, talk about

shooting yourself in the foot.

That

0:16:130:16:17

was the problem last time.

The

manifesto is the same.

Staying with

0:16:170:16:22

the telegraph, let's look at a photo

on the front page, strong and cradle

0:16:220:16:25

it says. Theresa May holding a baby.

Which used to be standard fare for

0:16:250:16:33

politicians around election time but

I don't remember seeing Theresa

0:16:330:16:37

May...

Because as Andrea Leadsom

rather carelessly shall we say put

0:16:370:16:42

out, Theresa May has not had

children of her own so therefore she

0:16:420:16:46

is the age of having grandchildren

and she has not got them for that

0:16:460:16:50

very reason so it's an image we have

not seen at any point before. Maybe

0:16:500:16:54

we happen to us on secretary but I

cannot remember because it was not

0:16:540:16:57

literally then so you are not

looking for it.

A lovely picture.

0:16:570:17:06

The baby is only six days old, a

fine head of hair for a tiny baby.

0:17:060:17:11

That is one for the family album,

taking in walking them. Very sweet.

0:17:110:17:17

Quite extraordinary when you think

Sharon national Security Council on

0:17:170:17:22

Monday for two hours, going to the

house making a statement and

0:17:220:17:24

answering questions, Tuesday

ultimatum for the Russians, all that

0:17:240:17:31

planning, Wednesday morning another

one hour or more with the Attorney

0:17:310:17:35

General, defence minister, foreign

Secretary, all of that going on, go

0:17:350:17:38

back to the not sanctions,

unannounced visit to Salisbury,

0:17:380:17:44

quite extraordinary.

This is a

tonic, holding a baby.

I think so.

0:17:440:17:48

She was genuinely engaged.

Returning

to the jam on cream debate. The

0:17:480:17:59

Queen settled in for us. How so?

I

think there are two scones, some

0:17:590:18:06

people say...

Gronk.

I don't know. I

have to admit, maybe from my Irish

0:18:060:18:14

grandmother, I put the cream,

sacrilege...

Wrong, wrong, wrong.

0:18:140:18:22

Will you tell us which way? She does

not look like she is improving. It

0:18:220:18:26

looks like a Photoshop picture.

I

clearly have blue blood somewhere in

0:18:260:18:31

my DNA because I like her Majesty

appear to have preferred jam first

0:18:310:18:36

then green. This appears to be

officially the Royal way. We should

0:18:360:18:40

all know this and take it to heart.

Many are judging it Bia-Bi

0:18:400:18:43

expression captured on this

photograph. It looks like she is

0:18:430:18:46

going with -- by the expression

captured on the photograph. It

0:18:460:18:52

looked like she likes the jam first

and then the cream.

Isn't there a

0:18:520:18:56

saying something about liking

doorjamb? It is probably your cake

0:18:560:19:01

and eat it.

It could be a French

expression we are not familiar with.

0:19:010:19:05

Anyway the Queen settled it but it

will not be settled. It will come

0:19:050:19:08

back again to that age-old question.

0:19:080:19:16

Andrew on Twitter wondered how far

Martin's conveyer belt of papers

0:19:160:19:19

would reach tonight. I will start

marking it like a long jump pit. I

0:19:190:19:25

think that if a record.

That is

pretty impressive.

Benedict brought

0:19:250:19:30

chocolate for us tonight so she

went. -- so she wins.

0:19:300:19:37

That's it for The Papers tonight.

Don't forget, you can see the front

0:19:370:19:40

pages of the papers online

on the BBC News website.

0:19:400:19:43

It's all there for you - seven days

a week at bbc.co.uk/papers.

0:19:430:19:45

And if you miss the programme any

evening, you can watch it

0:19:450:19:48

later on BBC iPlayer.

0:19:480:19:49

Of course it is French chocolate.

What other kind would you bring?

0:19:490:19:52

Thank you, Martin and Benedicte.

0:19:520:19:53

Goodbye.

0:19:530:19:54

See you later.
