10:40 pm
you have two very good guys in andrew strauss and alastair cook, they know each other very well, they got on well and they will come to the right plan, i think. you know, if alice to choose it any more than he has been a fantastic servant as captain. will it free him up tojust enjoy his batting a bit more, maybe, but whatever happens with that and captain, he has done a fantasticjob for that team. with the first tennis major of the year, the australian open, just a week away, three british players have been in action as they continue their preparation. dan evans won his match in sydney, as did the world number ten johanna konta who beat ari—na rodio—nova in straight sets — konta reached the semi—finals at the australian open last year. she'll be looking to match that run when the tournament gets underway, after what's already been a good start to the season. british number two kyle edmund is out, beaten by australian qualifier matthew barton in two tie—break sets on what was
10:41 pm
edmund's 22nd birthday britain's laura robson has been selected for tennis‘s fed cup match in estonia next month. robson has been chosen for her experience, even though tara moore is higher in the world rankings. it's anne keothavong's first team announcement since she took over as captain — she's selected johanna konta, heather watson and jocelyn rae to make up the team. that is all, coming up in a moment, the papers, see you later. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the former conservative pensions minister ros altmann and the sports journalist mihir bose. tomorrow's front pages, starting with the i,
10:42 pm
it leads on the political crisis in northern ireland. it says new elections are likely. the telegraph says a review has found that britain's most senior militaryjudge mishandled the trial of a royal marine, who was found guilty of murdering a wounded taliban fighter. the mail leads on the pressures on a&e. it says the health secretary has begged patients to stay away from crisis—hit hospitals. while the guardian says front—line doctors have warned patient safety is at risk, as casualty units are overwhelmed. the times leads on the story that doctors believe more than a quarter of accident and emergency units are dangerously overcrowded. the express focuses on house prices. and the metro leads on meryl streep‘s criticism of donald trump. that is at last night's: globes, we will talk about that later on, but let's start with the daily mail, broken a and e is yourfault, i.e.,
10:43 pm
the public was fought. one in three of us should not be in casualty at all. we are in the middle of winter, when you get the biggest pressures on the nhs, particularly a&e, he is trying to flag up that sad hopefully stop a few of us going over there. it is unprecedented for doctors to give the kind of learning we have had just now, which is that our a&e systems a re had just now, which is that our a&e systems are overloaded, patient safety is at risk. as you say, we are in the winter, the busiest time of year for are in the winter, the busiest time of yearfor ten one are in the winter, the busiest time of year for ten one typically, but what i think is really going on here, and if you look through some of the examples of what people are saying and what is happening in hospitals, lots of problems stemming from the failure of our social care system, and hospitals are saying we have got to discharge people. we have got to discharge people. we have not got enough beds to admit people to, and they can't, because social care is not taking people back into the community. so you have patients at risk, at one level, and
10:44 pm
then you have got the government saying that actually about 30% of people who actually show up at ten one are not real emergencies. so they are talking about having gps to fill the people out as they come into town one to see who is really an emergency and who isn't. mihir, this is a problem we have year after year, ten one can't cope, people are going there who should not be going there, there is not enough money to put into the health service. something radical has to be done to deal with all this. absolutely, and it is quite interesting what the health secretaryjeremy it is quite interesting what the health secretary jeremy hunt it is quite interesting what the health secretaryjeremy hunt has said, that people are going in with broken fingernails, and that is causing the broken a&e. it is almost the way he has put it, and of course he is suggesting that if fewer people have to go, otherwise the four hour wait, which is what was prescribed back in 2004 by the then labour government, that patients have to be treated, may have to be
10:45 pm
revised. in a way, what is happening here, we are very proud of our national health service, but we are getting close to what happened in america, where they don't have a national health service, and where people when they are ill go to the emergency ward. that seems to be happening. we need to look at our whole health care system. what we need to do and what we should do, people are growing older, living longer, and every year we have the same crisis. but this year the emergency seems to be greater. but having gps there to filter out who really is an emergency make some sense. you would think it was already happening to some degree and it hasn't done, so we have to get to grips with this. the front of the independent macro, crisis as mcguinness resigns. bizarrely, all of this over a green energy scheme.
10:46 pm
yes, and although that is the sensible reason, but one suspects that this goes back to the reaction of the republicans who are sharing in the ruling northern ireland to what has happened to brexit and how they feel about it. oh really? i suspect that the filling of the whole peace process in northern ireland, the european union played a big part in it, and the feeling was if we quit europe and northern ireland, particularly the peace process, would be damaged, and i think this is the first, if you like, dividend, if one can put it that way, of the june vote. roz, mihir has hit on this going way beyond the green energy scheme, which if people have missed the news
10:47 pm
over the last year, it was a scheme to encourage people to be more green, they were getting subsidies in order to do this. but in fact the subsidies were so great that people we re subsidies were so great that people were actually using more energy than they needed in order to get the subsidies, and as a result the people of northern ireland are in a hole to the chewing of £490 million think it is. it is known as the cash for ash scheme. but as mihir has suggested, it could be brexit, certainly as far as sinn fein is concerned, you have got certain issues with the first minister, in that state she is not seen as a friend of pound sharing —— power—sharing, per se, friend of pound sharing —— power—sharing, perse, but she friend of pound sharing —— power—sharing, per se, but she has not been giving the catholics and sinn fein what they believe they should be getting out of devolution, so should be getting out of devolution, so this goes very deep, way beyond ash for cash. it definitely does. the power—sharing agreement means that sinn fein and the dup, both
10:48 pm
sides have got to share power. so as soon as martin mcguinness as deputy first minister and stand that brings down the government and they have to go for elections. so the dup first minister cannot rule without the sinn fein deputy first minister. but an election will bring out the same as arts, the dup will probably be the ruling party. what they are helping us to get rid of arlene foster, who they find it difficult to work with. but there are brexit overtones to this, as mihir says, there are brexit overtones to this because nobody knows how it will all work with the border with northern ireland, if you have not got an open border, how will you make this whole thing work? jeremy corbyn on the front page of the daily telegraph, he faces labour backlash over strikes. this is the rmt strike, southern rail strike, jeremy corbyn has refused to condemn the strikes,
10:49 pm
even though the mayor of london sadiq khan has attacked rail workers who went on strike on the tubes today, and this is seen as something that could hit him electorally. today, and this is seen as something that could hit him electorallylj think it could. there are hundreds of thousands of not more people who are of thousands of not more people who a re really of thousands of not more people who are really being disadvantaged by the problems on the railways. it has been happening for a long time on the southern railways. today we have had this awful strike in london, so a lot of people couldn't get to work or spend hours trying to get work. there is a lot of anger out there. we have got the mayor of london saying this is unnecessary and then you have the labour leader saying actually he is backing the strikers. the public want to see that something is done. at the end of the day, we all need to get to work, we
10:50 pm
all need to commute. lots of people will either be losing business or some people will be losing jobs as a result of this travel chaos. the labour party is putting a new streng —— campaign strategy for the beginning of the year that they believe will take them to a better place in the polls. to be the kind of unconventional leader that they believe donald trump has been and so on and so forth. is it going to work, and not being mealy—mouthed is whatjeremy corbyn's followers would say past labour leaders would have donein say past labour leaders would have done in this situation, they would say it should go to as lead, they should have talks, both sides have an item that suggest they should whatever —— to as lead. he is saying iam going whatever —— to as lead. he is saying i am going to back the strikers. big
10:51 pm
mistake? in the past, labour leaders would have said let's have a beer and sam burgess. labour is doing what the republican right did in america for a long time, that we will go to our core base. i get the feeling that corbyn would not mind losing the next election if he gets a labour party that believes in the sort of socialism he wants and that could be the launch pad for years down the line for a corbyn acolyte or another figure like corbyn that would really bring in the socialist republic that really they aspire for. we may say that is impossible but look at what has happened in america. but that is a maverick on the right, and that is the thing about all these revolutions, yes there was syriza in greece and the durm us in spain, though they are both on the back foot. everyone else they are on the right. but if you
10:52 pm
know now, there is a lot of talk about the disparity in incomes, that people in the city are still getting huge bonuses. even theresa may has spoken that the so—called jams want the government to intervene. so those are change even in conservative thinking. rods, is that true from your experience? yes, but corbyn doesn't have the backing of his own mps. most of them. the core labour supporters to want to get to work, mr wood to have a job and travel. that could be his big problem. the front page of the metro now ros, the golden globes last night, millstreet used that pulpit and microphone for a bit of sparring with the president elect. it is incredible that he has risen to that date. it is not incredible, ros, where have you been?”
10:53 pm
date. it is not incredible, ros, where have you been? i guess you're right, i still can't quite believe it, though. what she was basically saying is you should not mock someone who is disabled. most people out there would agree with that, but for trump to come back and said to her that she is some kind of second—rate actress, this woman has got 19 oscar—nominated is, 13 golden globes, three oscars. by no stretch of the imagination could you call her other thing —— other than anything van... we are living in a post—truth world, ros, where have you been? we can't keep going like this, surely? it shows that trump is being very trump, and he denies saying what he says, which is on record. if you point out to trump that he says that come he will say i have not. we have all fallen down the rabbit hole. a post-truth world. we have had the meeting of the old pulpit, i support our troops in vietnam or i don't, thanks for the
10:54 pm
oscar by the way, thanks to my mum. and the way donald trump does it, with a bit of a tweet. at five in the morning. which one is going to win? it has to be that we do. will he still be doing it afterjanuary 20? the front page of the guardian, trump to hire son—in—law the top job in white house. there is most to be laws against nepotism, whenjfk hired robert kennedy, they brought ina law hired robert kennedy, they brought in a law to stop this kind of thing happening. it's still happening. he is going to be senior adviser, that is going to be senior adviser, that is the story, but they believe there is the story, but they believe there isa is the story, but they believe there is a loophole, because the law says you can't, the person who has an agency can't appoint a relation to the agency, and they are arguing that the white house is not an agency, the president is not an agent, he is above that. this is an interpretation of the law. this is semantics of the worst kind. can he
10:55 pm
get away with it? i suppose it can. i think he can get away with a hell ofa i think he can get away with a hell of a lot. until things go wrong. maybe he will continue to. he will say he is a consultant. to be fair, he is pointing out that bill clinton and his wife, you know, they both had top positions together. she would have asked bill for a bit of advice, wouldn't she? maybe, maybe not, but i can see their point of view. mrs clinton acted on the health care programme which did not actually work, so she had a proper job. but i think the problem here, ros, is we have to see how he does and secondly at this point in time the american people might give him a lot of slack. i do believe they will come as i say, until something goes wrong. it is all fine until it goes
10:56 pm
belly up. front page of the daily telegraph, shoppers warned over waste. yes, i mean, basically we are going to apparently get science in supermarkets reminding us that you should not why food unnecessarily, that bread goes off more quickly if you keep it in the fridge, things like this. do we really need this? are they going to help by not giving ridiculous two—for—one offers, fifa one of us, so you have six packets of these things in your fridge, not speaking from personal experience. and then you have to throw for them away. it is a bit nanny state. there isa away. it is a bit nanny state. there is a huge amount of food waste but not sure that signs in supermarkets are going to make much of a difference. i will have to read it here. mihir, ros, good to see you, thanks forjoining us. all of the front pages online where you can read a detailed review of all of the papers. it is therefore you seven a week. you can see us
10:57 pm

10:58 pm
accentuated by the breeze, which is easing down, but still a blustery start. a bit more in the way of cloud and some outbreaks further west. there will be some rain at times in northern ireland. east of the pennines, it is largely dry. we should have a bright start for much of eastern england, variable cloud through the midlands but largely dry. wales in the south—west of england, thick cloud and some outbreaks of rain through the morning. the eastern side hangs onto some bright spells, maybe some sunshine as well. come the afternoon, more clout as patchy rain works its way from west to east. through the evening, some patchy rain, which is lincolnshire and east anglia. that is in association with this weather front. a lot of isobars on the chart. if anything they get a bit tighter behind this conference
