to what the papers will be bringing us to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me arejohn rentoul, political columnist for the independent, and ruth lea, who's an economic adviser to the arbuthnot banking group. we agreed on half of the stories and rubbished the other 50%. you get what you pay for. the sunday telegraph has a photograph of usain bolt and justin gatlin after their controversial 100m final tonight, but its main story is about brexit. the paper reports the uk is prepared to pay up to £36 billion to settle the brexit divorce bill. it says it's the first time a precise figure has been proposed. the independent on sunday also focuses on brexit and a warning from scientists about the government's intention to leave the eu's nuclear agency. the observer concentrates on advice from the children's commissioner, who's concerned that many kids are bingeing on social media likejunk food.
the mail on sunday says it has found that around 40% of police stations have been closed down in seven years. the sunday times reports that british students are being discriminated against by universities, in favour of more lucrative foreign students. the sunday mirror has a story we've been reporting on today, the ordeal of a british model who was kidnapped in milan. and the sunday express chooses to feature prince harry and his girlfriend, the actress meghan markle, as they arrive in botswana for a break. but is it just but is itjust a holiday? we don't no. the telegraph. brexit. written to put £36 billion on the table in a divorce offer. —— britain. but according to a government source, they are dismissing these reports that they are prepared to pay this bill. do you believe it? there is no smoke without a fire. they quit the
sources that confirm it. we assume there is some truth in it. but we don't know yet. some parts of government tend to disagree with other parts, i have noticed that as the eu negotiations have gone on. that ours make the reasonable assumption it is true. —— let us. they are trying to push the debate on. what they want to discuss with michel barnier, the chief negotiator for the eu, is the relationship for the eu and the uk. barnier has set until the risen a financial settle m e nt until the risen a financial settlement we are not able to do that. —— there is a. so that is why they are doing this. if this is true, that is what they are trying to do. much higher figures have been talked about. yes. there has been the 100 billion figure which boris
johnson said they can go and whistle for. it is not as big as it looks. essentially it is saying we should pay what we are paying at the moment for the three years of a transition period, that is 10 billion a year. and then a bit extra. i am amazed that ruth seems to think that is reasonable. you would expect some of the leavers to say we will not pay a penny. many will. the truth is, i was a civil servant, you no... that is where i got my superb manners from. —— know. ifi is where i got my superb manners from. —— know. if i may say so. but this is a negotiation. i do believe we wa nt this is a negotiation. i do believe we want a good relationship with the european union when we leave. and if
that means you have to put some money on the table, you put some money on the table, you put some money on the table. they are denying it at the moment. but if this is an opening gambit and it is a negotiation, it is going to go up, isn't it? that is true. you don't start with a figure assuming it is going to go down. but the question is how high you think it is at the moment. if this is reallyjust 10 billion more than just moment. if this is reallyjust 10 billion more thanjust carrying on out billion more thanjust carrying on our existing payments for three years, then it is not very much, it seems to me. it seems affordable, quite reasonable. i suspect the eu will not accept such a low figure. they will end up paying more. they are talking about 50— 60 billion. so probably a5. are talking about 50— 60 billion. so probably 45. put that down. 45 billion. said that to them. -- send.
the pound is all over the place, isn't it? the independent. if you we re isn't it? the independent. if you were with us at 1030, john was pointing out vladimir putin was on the front page. he promised us by 1130 vladimir putin would be replaced by usain bolt. we have not quite got there yet. i am sure it is on its way. 0k. quite got there yet. i am sure it is on its way. ok. we will look out for it. i am sure usain bolt is racing to the front page. yeah. third—place. to the front page. yeah. third-place. we still have vladimir putin. very odd. spearfishing in siberia, at least with a shot on. ditching eu nuclear agency will slam bra kes ditching eu nuclear agency will slam brakes on green car revolution, that is the headline. a top nuclear physicist, martin friers, he says leaving the eu's nuclear side, it is
going to play havoc with that industry. he makes the point it is very important we do have a growing nuclear power sector because we have electric cars coming down the track and we don't want to power them with fossil fuels. yeah. and we don't want to power them with fossilfuels. yeah. exactly. it says we can import vital materials to nuclear plants. you will need a lot of them to get rid of diesel cars and petrol cars by 2040. you will need another five or six. i think this is utter rubbish. why is that? it isa this is utter rubbish. why is that? it is a scare story. a project fear neo scare story. neo scare story! i don't think he has any evidence for this. would it not make sense if you are leaving it, if you are leaving the eu, why not stay part of the
agency and make use of all of the expertise? my understanding is it is pa rt of expertise? my understanding is it is part of the package. if you leave the eu, you leave the institution. 0ver you don't have to. the eu, you leave the institution. over you don't have to. there is no need to reconstruct all of those... i say everything in the eu is political. if we can reach a political. if we can reach a political agreement, we can stay in the institution when we leave. they would be quite happy with that. there you go. i don't think that is what the may or michael gove, the environment secretary, i don't think thatis environment secretary, i don't think that is what they want. —— theresa may. a scare story. a neo scare story. never heard of it. the sunday times. a drive for higher education fees betray sixth form. it is all
about money. they are maximising their income by taking people who pay more rather than people who don't. that is very simple. it is very simple. except that we don't have a cap on student numbers any more in england. and so there is no reason why you should not be able to ta ke reason why you should not be able to take foreign students and eu students, including british students. umm, so, you know, iam not sure, i have not had a chance to look properly at the end of this story, i am look properly at the end of this story, iam not look properly at the end of this story, i am not sure that british stu d e nts story, i am not sure that british students are losing out because of more lucrative fortune is being given preference. £9,000 a year for tuition fees if you are going to an english university. umm. .. tuition fees if you are going to an english university. umm... how much do they charge for an students?” dread to think. there are high numbers in this article. is it where it says the foundation course is
between 15 and 22,000? the implication is that i am afraid that british students are losing out. i ta ke british students are losing out. i take your point there is not a cap on student. but they will have capacity constraints. take it at face value. some substitution is taking place. some are losing out. that is the implication. and a debate about how much longer they will be able to charge this £9,000. there is a move for it to be cut. forforeign students there is a move for it to be cut. for foreign students to be more attractive. jeremy corbyn did so well in the general election with his promise to abolish tuition fees. that does me there is going to be quite a lot of pressure to reduce or get rid of tuition fees altogether. it is difficult. for the next election whenever that is. the 0bserver. stop students to make children bingeing on social media.
—— stop children bingeing. we don't wa nt —— stop children bingeing. we don't want the meeting junk food so we should do the same with going on line. there is no solution, it seems. turn off the wi—fi? deny all the data? seems. turn off the wi—fi? deny all the data ? how seems. turn off the wi—fi? deny all the data? how do you do it?” seems. turn off the wi—fi? deny all the data? how do you do it? i am not a parent. sol the data? how do you do it? i am not a parent. so i don't know. what should i do? well... what do you do? not to make silly analogy is with junk food. that is my first suggestion. —— analogies. what is junk food is in the eye of the beholder, the consumer. like a mcdonald's... beholder, the consumer. like a mcdonald's. .. don't advertise on here. he should eat good and healthy food. not with every meal... oh dear. this is about children going on social media too much. i am on quite a lot. that is because i enjoy
it so bytes do you put it down and read a book from time to time? not really. don't you? a book? you can read that on your phone.” really. don't you? a book? you can read that on your phone. i like a proper book with proper pages. i am really old—fashioned, aren't i? my poor children. no wonder they spend all their time on social media. well, thank you, ruth. you can really fall out with some people, can't you ? the really fall out with some people, can't you? the observer. dragracing. gay pride has been taking place. northern ireland is going to have to catch up fairly soon, apparently.
that is right. someone else was saying that on the bbcjust now, pointing out that attitudes in northern ireland are changing towards gay rights, having abortions, all those things were northern ireland is different from the uk. they are saying the same thing at gay pride, northern ireland needs to catch up with the rest of the uk. and with ireland, actually. extraordinary. yes, they used to be a very catholic country, a very different culture from britain. a very catholic country, a very different culture from britainm is incredible that different parts of the uk have such different civil liberties. my understanding is the dup has been blocking a marriage in northern ireland. now they are more in the fold they may change their mind. ilike in the fold they may change their mind. i like these pictures. these two ladies are gorgeous. aren't
they! one of them has a corset on. 0ne they! one of them has a corset on. one of them is princess leia. she is too much. i like their eyelashes. usain bolt. the telegraph. what an evening it has been. this is where you will prevent me from advertising the independent. there is no need to do that because you failed to provide a photograph. we will stick with the telegraph which has the picture. i don't like to be snippy with you, but... justin gatlin being hugged by usain bolt. you say only came third! third is amazing. the sunday times have a picture of usain bolt. the independent will have it ona
