tv The Papers BBC News June 13, 2017 10:45pm-11:00pm BST
to g ahead to m2 ahead what— , 7 papers hr election? just! still from the election? just! still shell—shocked! we are going to start with the telegraph which declares the prime minister will stick to her pre—election plans for a hard brexit, despite calls for a change of approach following the election result. the times says things could go in the opposite direction as it sources claim. the chancellor is preparing to fight to persuade members of the government to support a softer brexit instead. the i points to pressure from michel barnier to begin talks as theresa may is still to finalise a deal for support for her government from the dup. the financial times claims emmanuel macron is also putting pressure on mrs may to begin talks. the metro focuses on the dup and the
status of their negotiations with the conservatives. the paper says deals with the party could lead to further problems for theresa may's government. diane abbott is on the front page of the guardian. the paper has an exclusive interview with her there. although that's the daily mail! the daily mail leads with claims that medical assistance are treating patients as part of an nhs cost—cutting measure leaving many at risk. we are going to start with the telegraph. may says she's sticking to her brexit blueprint. she's in france, but she's talking toa she's in france, but she's talking to a serious europhile fan of the european union, yet she's making it clear she'll stick to what people are describing as a hard brexit. yes, it's worth noting in her meeting with macron today that it was quite a friendly handshake. unlike the one he had with mr trump!
there do seem to be warmer relations. there's been a lot of speculation since the results about what it means for brexit. lots of people in her own party want her to rethink her approach but the telegraph is saying that's not going to happen. why? you could point to the fact, david, that 80% of voters voted for parties, labour and the conservatives, who are advocating leaving the single market. yes, but what's been going on since the election result and the outcome, which shocked just about everybody. i think that's a fair comment. i've been abroad in recent weeks and it shocked people abroad. they still don't understand why the brits, a british prime minister has an election she doesn't need to have. anyway, putting that aside, i was
going to sit it i can say there's beena going to sit it i can say there's been a lot of briefing today and indeed a few speeches and interviews, from conservatives saying soften your tone, mrs may. a ha rd saying soften your tone, mrs may. a hard brexit is off the agenda. and what happened tonight very clearly is that the hard brexiteers are fighting back and there's been this briefing to the telegraph saying the prime minister is absolutely sticking to her guns and a threat that britain could leave the eu without securing a trade deal. issue trying to keep those backbenchers onside? is that what this is all about? i think she's trying to keep about? i think she's trying to keep a lot of backbenchers and side at the moment. we saw in her shuffle today of ministerial appointments, we saw some remain porters, in, some
brexit supporters come in. it's hard to did you switch side shoes on. evenif to did you switch side shoes on. even if she wants to lead us out, it's whether she actually can. may has never looked weaker as prime minister than she does now and it's the cabinet making a lot of decisions. which takes off onto the other story, david on the front page of the times. hammond pushes tories to ditch brexit trade plan. the real brexiteers are going to hold sway according to the telegraph, but the times is now saying it could be hammond. this is exactly the point. is it only a week ago it was philip hammond who was for the chop as chancellor? now he is preparing to lead a battle within the government to soften brexit by keeping britain
inside the eu customs union. this is what people like borisjohnson have fought tooth and nail against. and then of course president macron who we mentioned earlier, he added to the fire tonight by saying that the eu's doors remain open for britain to reverse brexit, if things go on like this. i have to say, the result isa like this. i have to say, the result is a night of the football match, france three with ten men, england two with 11 men, i hope that wasn't an omen for two with 11 men, i hope that wasn't an omen foers two with 11 men, i hope that wasn't an omen for mrs may! katie, is theresa may's debating style the way that she feels she should conduct these talks on brexit, is to go in there and say if we don't get a deal where going to walk away and that's it. hard brexit. that is what
underpins her whole strategy, that they are going to be too scared not to give us a deal. is that what this is about? that was part of her pitch. it's quite funny that during the election campaign, which eve ryo ne the election campaign, which everyone admits was now quite a bad campaign, she said if you don't vote for me you will havejeremy corbyn in the negotiations so you need me. if you look at how she's been depicted in the foreign media since the results and you do think she's more a laughing stock right now than this iron lady. that could change but i think you can't deny although she called this election to strengthen her hand, it's weakened it massively. of course, there's a bloke called david davis who is secretary of state for brexit. he is presenting a rather softer line in the past few days than he had to follow the may line until last
thursday. but now, it will be very interesting to see what tone he takes and what approach he takes. interesting to see what tone he takes and what approach he takeslj still don't understand why she has the tone she has. what is the reasoning for going in there, making it clear it's going to be a hard brexit if i don't get what i want? the idea is you have to be able to walk away from the table in order to get a good deal. i think that wine is wearing weaker and weaker, particularly now. we saw michael gove today, everyone seems to be softening their language a little and talking about this need for more conversation with everyone and all the different parties. it's all talk, but there seems to be a conscious effort to make it seem less ha rd. i conscious effort to make it seem less hard. i don't know if theresa may herself has got the memo. there are a lot of conservative hardliners
on this matter and she now has to keep them somehow onside, though history teaches us that the conservative party's way of self—preservation is a considerable way. given the majority she's got now, next to none, even with the dup she's got to keep them on side as well. it feels a bit unlike the major years when he was held ransom by the blokes beginning with b, as it were! we shouldn't underestimate the role of ruth davidson in this. without the games in scotland with the scottish conservatives, may wouldn't have been able to form a minority government. ruth davidson is in favour of a soft brexit. she wa nts to is in favour of a soft brexit. she wants to focus on the economy so she isn't in the big brexit camp. the front page of the financial times, cameron turns heat on may with call to consult labour for a softer
brexit. we'll go on to the guardian. interview with diane abbott on diabetes and life as chief target of a vicious tory campaign. we saw the day before the election, diane abbott was moved temporarily from the home office brief, after a bad interview on sky. they said it was health reasons. now she says she suffers from type two diabetes. in the stress of the campaign have blood sugar levels were all over the place which affected her performance. the irony of that is that the prime minister has, for many years, suffered from a different type of diabetes as well. this whole question of the media, particularly the press's approach to diane abbott, and other labour figures, was that
counter— productive ? figures, was that counter—productive? in previous campaigns certain newspapers claimed they won the campaign for the conservatives. i seem to remember somebody what one it was the headline. who was it what lost it this time, one wonders? perhaps that isn't a question to be asking tonight. yes, on a programme called the papers! laughter are you saying the papers have no influence? i'm saying it's a very interesting question academically. i'll see you at birmingham university to discuss it! talking about people wanting to get into the press and the papers, nick clegg is now a columnist with the i. yes, the i is still print. it's the independent that is online. there he is, nick clegg, new columnist. great news because he
lost hisjob columnist. great news because he lost his job last week. no need to go to thejob centre! it's quite traditionalfor go to thejob centre! it's quite traditional for politicians to have columns. traditional for politicians to have colu m ns. less traditional for politicians to have columns. less common is what george osborne did, obviously, when you ta ke osborne did, obviously, when you take on the editorship. i imagine george osborne might be kicking himself. isn't it the same owner? no it's not actually. you want complaining about politicians doing new complaining about politicians doing n . complaining about politicians doing newjobs? television complaining about politicians doing new jobs? television people complaining about politicians doing newjobs? television people have endlessly gone into. politics have they? i can go back as far as geoffreyjohnson smith, who was an early tv presenter, who was a conservative mp for years. i'm going to have to wrap this up otherwise be looking for a newjob as well! laughter thank you. that's it for the papers tonight. thank you to you watching, goodbye. hello. a bit of summer warmth on the

have been productive and confirms that brexit negotiations will begin next week. we have worked as a party with the dup before and those are productive talks, the intent is to ensure that we have the stability of government in the national interest. we're talking about matters that pertain, of course, to the nation generally, bringing stability to the uk government in and around issues around brexit. in paris, meeting the french president — brexit topped the agenda along with an announcement of a joint anti—terror initiative to combat extremism online. inflationjumps to a four—year high — squeezing family incomes and outstripping wages.
