hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are political commentator & columnist grace blakeley and sam lister, deputy political editor at the daily express. tomorrow's front pages starting with... the update to the government's travel list is one of the stories in the guardian. croatia has been added to the list but the balearic islands will be moved to amber from 4am on monday. mask chaos — that's the main headline on the front of the daily mirror. although borisjohnson said masks will no longer be compulsory, several mayors have said they will still be needed on transport in certain areas. similarly, the times leads with how there has been a backlash from businesses over facemask guidance. the metro's big headline — face off over masks. the papers says unions are warning
11:32 pm
confusion would turn transport workers into punchbags for angry customers. taxes on driving and flying could be introduced as part of a plan to reduce britain's transport emissions. that's on the front of the telegraph. the daily mail leads with �*snack tax to fight fat crisis�*. it says there could potentially be an increase on the current sugar tax on sweet drinks as well bringing in a new salt tax. and sizzling britain. that's on the front page of the daily express, as temperatures could soar to 31c this sunday. the warm spell is predicted to last all next week. so let's begin... the daily mirror, freedom day fears mask chaos, so much to cover in this as bid to dig face covering law. city mayors resulting saying there were to keep their region safer by doing things their own way. it's a
11:33 pm
very confusing picture, not everyone agrees with the way we are heading. it looks as though the government is not responding to that polling that suggests a lot of people actually support the ongoing use of facemasks, so there was a widely shared pole glances up to 70% of people supported continuing to have facemasks in public places and transports. we have seen andy burnham and others saying that mass will did you to be mandatory on public transport services but obviously there's less clarity on the parts of the country where mayors don't have the same powers. as see in some of these other stories as well the issue seems to be a lack of certainty and flip—flopping from the government. the government probably assumed that there was perhaps more support for there was perhaps more support for the removal of all restrictions where it looks as though people are slightly more cautious and saying,
11:34 pm
well, we are willing to have people have in the use of masks with social distancing as long as we don't have to go into another lockdown. there's so much that — to go into another lockdown. there's so much that has _ to go into another lockdown. there's so much that has been _ to go into another lockdown. there's so much that has been given - to go into another lockdown. there's so much that has been given to - to go into another lockdown. there's so much that has been given to us, i so much that has been given to us, personal responsibility. we are being told you've got to make a judgement call for your self, but that responsibility means choice. and you cannot force somebody to do something that you don't, you don't owe want them to do, can you? even if it means you would feel more reassured if they carried away masks. , , ., , masks. this competing demands. i think actually _ masks. this competing demands. i think actually our _ masks. this competing demands. i think actually our readers - masks. this competing demands. i think actually our readers are - masks. this competing demands. i think actually our readers are quite cautious_ think actually our readers are quite cautious about the removal of masks, but then_ cautious about the removal of masks, but then for— cautious about the removal of masks, but then for businesses it's actually— but then for businesses it's actually a very difficult because on the flip— actually a very difficult because on the flip side once the legal requirements are taken away they are in difficult _ requirements are taken away they are in difficult positions. you've got many— in difficult positions. you've got many competing demands here and it's quite tricky~ _ many competing demands here and it's quite tricky. you throw into the mix the politics— quite tricky. you throw into the mix the politics of it, obviously most

11:37 pm
of an certainty that we are seeing at the moment. the other thing when it comes to the issues around facemasks is that we don't want this to end up as a political statement and qc in the us. 0bviously differences from region to region as to what the mayors are saying, but if this to the associated with certain types of politicians are a mask of types or not, which seems to be what has happened in the us, republicans versus democrats, that creates a whole other swathe of problems stop by the daily telegraph saying the pubs, restaurants and bars will be urged to check that seeing passport. that's time—consuming and potentially quite tricky to do. with people taking exception to it. yes, this is interesting because even though people keen to continue ensuring that we all wear masks, many of them aren't comfortable with this idea of aren't comfortable with this idea of a vaccine passport because of many of the same reasons people up in a couple in the past with things like
11:38 pm
ids being introduced. because there's this pushback from civil liberties groups and libertarian elements of the conservative party. they are also unhappy with the idea that this would be introduced so difficult even for the conservatives to get enough people behind the idea of mandatory vaccine passwords introduced. having said that we're likely to see things like it would be easier to go on holiday if you got evidence that you've been vaccinated twice and perhaps to get into some venues. although again it's going to be difficult if there's not a change in the law for it to say you have to be able to prove this. it to say you have to be able to prove this-— it to say you have to be able to prove this. it to say you have to be able to rove this. , ., , , prove this. the daily telegraph is where we will _ prove this. the daily telegraph is where we will stay. _ prove this. the daily telegraph is where we will stay. leveling - prove this. the daily telegraph is where we will stay. leveling up i prove this. the daily telegraph is l where we will stay. leveling up will not track the south downplayed his johnsson. this is part of the recovery. getting, trying to eradicate some of the massive regional differences but at the same time reassure the south that that they will not be ignored at the

11:41 pm
productivity that are matched as well by differences in investment. the public investment is, has consistently been much lower in many of the regions it is in london in the southeast makeup to transport. and that's been the case for many years now, and also that has led to a situation where the uk is one of the most regionally unequal countries in the developed world. the really need to make sure that thatis the really need to make sure that that is being dealt with in the kind of post—pandemic world, but also we are seeing public spending going to facilitate the kick the recovery i suppose through businesses and the private sector. and it's time to invest in time to start hiring people so we can get the economy going again. 5m? people so we can get the economy going again-— going again. stay with you for the times, going again. stay with you for the times. why _ going again. stay with you for the times. why are — going again. stay with you for the times, why are ceremonies - going again. stay with you for the times, why are ceremonies for i going again. stay with you for the | times, why are ceremonies for the stars of the olympics going to be diy in tokyo?— stars of the olympics going to be diyinto o? , ., ., ,, diy in tokyo? yes, so again because of all of the — diy in tokyo? yes, so again because of all of the restrictions _ diy in tokyo? yes, so again because of all of the restrictions that - diy in tokyo? yes, so again because of all of the restrictions that need i of all of the restrictions that need to be put in place these athletes

11:45 pm
tundra, oceans are a carbon sink, and we are seeing across all of these different absorbers of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is that they are becoming saturated, so we are seeing this in the oceans, as a result of deforestation through the reduced ability to the rain forests and that's obviously being exacerbated by presentable scenario who is on the quite extreme right as he kind of is is either denying that there is a man—made element to climate break down orjust kind of ignoring it. and all of these things were mentioned in this report that came out not long ago, his hothouse earth report from the ipcc that said if we don't act now is carbon sinks will get saturated and then suddenly it will stop observing the carbon dioxide it will end up releasing much, much more in the atmosphere and that the tipping point that we really don't want to get to. so it's so important that recovery from this pandemic is sustainable and gets us

hottest year on record joined with 2016 and 2019 was the second hottest on record. again, going

been defeated for the first time on their tour of south africa. a strong south africa �*a' side beat them 17—13 in cape town. tries from wing sbu nkosi and this one from centre lukhanyo am had helped put the hosts 17—3 ahead by half time. and although wynjones went overfor the lions early in the second half, south africa a held on for the win despite being down to 13 men after two yellow cards. 0ne better piece of news for the lions is that alun wynjones is re—joining the squad,
11:51 pm
despite dislocating his shoulder just over two weeks ago. he's flying out to south africa tomorrow to rejoin the team but won't take part in saturday's match against the stormers. head coach warren gatland says he's coming back to be considered for the tests, and notjust to be behind the scenes. england's women cricketers have won their multi format series against india after an eight wicket victory in their final t20 match. india won the toss and chose to bat — opener smiriti mandhana top scoring with 70 as they finished on 153 for six and in response an unbeaten 89 from dani wyatt saw her side over the line with eight balls remaining as they scored a ten points to six win. i was really pleased with the way it went tonight. it was a really nice wicket. thought our balls were bowled really well to restrict them to that total. and yeah, ijust batted sensible and just play to my strengths.
11:52 pm
i love nights like tonight and to get a series win as well, just makes it even better. we've had to wait two years because of covid — but it's back — golf's open championship — and with fans — and tomorrow morning at 6.35 the first player will tee off at royal st george's in kent. ben croucher reports. teeing it up at last on the kent coast. better late than never. the open championship royal st george's is one of goals most fearsome challenges whether it's the devil is roughly swirling sea breeze or the fairways and greens the players are in for a bumpy ride. it's just not as exciting i don't know why whether it be a couple of shots to nothing. you know, a couple of blind, a couple of tea shots shots where you can't really see much i'm not too big a fan of that. few tournaments, few courses provide such unpredictability. ben curtis ranked 396 in the world when he won in 2003.
11:53 pm
0r darren clark's unexpected emotional triumph a decade ago. the game has come along way since then but when the lies are uneven things golf could be a real leveler. as i got a little more experience and matured i've been able to play this championship a little bit better. hopefully i can continue that record this week. but it's notjust the players that are happy to be back here at st george's this week we have fans as well. each day of competition up to 32,000 will be in attendance. it's lovely to get out. it's absolutely excellent. in practice he is probably- because everything is up close. been really fun actually seeing somebody faces with up with rory mcelroy playing over and the putting green over there which is really, wow. he was literally five metres in front of me. really cool.
11:54 pm
it's amazing especially during the southeast the weather is perfect. looked like it was gonna be raining, it's amazing, it's nice to be here. don't be full by the picture—perfect location. there are hazards everywhere you look. for the man who becomes the king of royal st george's come sunday evening, he will have truly earned it. in tennis news british number one dan evans has pulled out of the tokyo 0lympics. evans tested positive for covid—19 and is now self—isolating. he joins a host of players missing out, including johanna konta who announced she'd tested positive on tuesday. rafael nadal and roger federer are also missing from the games which get under way later next week injapan. we're getting to the business end of this year's tour de france and we're also into the steepest climbs. today's 17th stage saw the defending champion tadej pogacar assert his dominance as he seeks successive wins. watching was drew savage. this is what a good day at the office looks like at the tour de france.
11:55 pm
he had proved his class once again. stage 17 was the first of in the pyrenees. with the hardest climbs left in the race. pogacar already had a big lead, no need to attack but the slovenian does things with style. rigoberto uran, the man second in the standings, was left behind. and then there were three. alongside pogacar, the young danejonas vingegaard wearing white, and richard carapaz, the ecuadorian in the colours of britain's ineos grenadiers — promoted to second and third overall. most likely fighting to finish closest to pogacar in the battle for yellow — but all three wanted the glory of the stage win. carapaz made his move with a mile to go but although pogacar didn't need to win the stage, he wanted to. a scenario that made the outcome as inevitable as it was impressive, an iconic victory that would extend his lead to five minutes 48 seconds. vingegaard second, carapaz third with four stages to go, it may stay like that
11:56 pm
