10:31 pm
to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are anna isaac, economics editor of the independent and iain anderson, executive chairman of pr company cicero. lovely to see you both. before we update from them let me update you with the front pages and we have them so far. collision course set for brussels — the ft leads on overhauls set to be announced for post—brexit trade deals between britain and northern ireland. meanwhile, the metro's front focuses on the reaction to a french warship escorting an overcrowded dinghy to british waters, it reports record numbers have been arriving on the south coast. with 700 migrants arriving in two days, according to the telegraph,

which also reports on the crossing. but it leads on an appeal to the prime ministerfrom cabinet ministers to expand the list of exempt from isolating or face a wave of closures. also leading on the impact of pingdemic — the mirror reports that one million children are currently off school. that's also the lead on the front page of the daily express. the guardian leads with a report on a leaked data base, with details emmanuel macron, and 13 other heads of state and heads of government. so let's begin... more on all of those. with the telegraph pm urged to expand covid app telegraph pm urged to expand covid app extensions. telegraph pm urged to expand covid app extensions-_ app extensions. we've been hearing leas from app extensions. we've been hearing pleas from business _ app extensions. we've been hearing pleas from business leaders - app extensions. we've been hearing pleas from business leaders for - app extensions. we've been hearing pleas from business leaders for a i pleas from business leaders for a few days now. particularly the idea

of ice and stands out saying trying to keep doors open throughout the pandemic so far but now it's getting pinged meaning there were shortages and there would be a need to reduce opening hours. we are also hearing very contradictory messages from government and i think that's really at the heart of the story. you have lord brimstone the investment minister writing note no, it'sjust advisory, you don't have to take attention of the app for a very large business was up another business minister, a small business minister saying again it was advisory. and the mounting confusion well what is a? is it compulsory, is that what you should do or this mean you have a think about it and determine whether or not you can pick the right thing to do? completely against what the pm said only a few days ago saying you are five times more likely if you have been pinged by the app. and we know
10:34 pm
that infections are going through the roof. i think there is a real amount of confusion and justice order in terms of peoples ability to cope with this risk of getting pinged of the practical implications of getting pain. potentially losing wages, being very confused as to whether this is something everyone is doing or a month for keeping the outgoing and not being part of the special trials. are we considering every industry we need? it's a very broad story it's got a run and run when we got so many people in isolation. in when we got so many people in isolation. . , , , , ., isolation. in a sense this started at the weekend _ isolation. in a sense this started at the weekend with _ isolation. in a sense this started at the weekend with a _ isolation. in a sense this started at the weekend with a kind - isolation. in a sense this started at the weekend with a kind of i at the weekend with a kind of misstep by the prime minister and the chancellor on whether or not they will get us south isolate after being in contact with javid who has turned out to have covid. this talk of exemptions and how you can keep business going at a time of major infection. this is a real problem that in sense a has been sitting

these extraordinary numbers in the number of people partying because it's the summer and across the sea are more favourable at this particular moment but quite significant numbers of would—be migrants trying to get into the uk and being intercepted and in some cases not being intercepted by borderforce. cases not being intercepted by border force.— cases not being intercepted by border force. absolutely. this is . uite border force. absolutely. this is cuite an border force. absolutely. this is quite an interesting _ border force. absolutely. this is quite an interesting story. - border force. absolutely. this is quite an interesting story. i - border force. absolutely. this is i quite an interesting story. i wonder if we've got the full picture. it's very interesting it describes a film crew documenting and witnessing what seems to be a french coast guard boat accompanying a boat carrying migrants across the channel towards the uk. this comes as the uk was trying to thrash out at how they can handle the issue with the migrant crossings which so far are coming right across the channel as you would expect, the shortest distance to cover. it's interesting because the independent had a very different story about the same thing talking about between pounds being given by
10:40 pm
the uk to france to help manage this problem. it's how to tell how much of the apparent contradiction would be between french and uk attitudes here might be part of a bigger negotiation that ultimately what you're saying is lots of people, humans taking a very dangerous journey. and it's very worrying. i think it's a reminder that migration crisis which is everywhere, there is no essay for them and everyone to deal with migration effectively. iain, the telegraph is reporting tomorrow it's iain, the telegraph is reporting tomorrow its reporting that britain is paying france i think one of the paper says 50 for million, the telegraph says 53 million. what is a million between general friends after all? we effectively have to pay them to patrol french beaches to prevent would—be migrants leaving

10:44 pm
want people there to do the checks. i do wonder if the two things are related, you don't on the ground but you are also dealing with people are prepared for additional checks particular from travelers. abs, prepared for additional checks particular from travelers. a story on the front _ particular from travelers. a story on the front of— particular from travelers. a story on the front of the _ particular from travelers. a story on the front of the ft— particular from travelers. a story on the front of the ft which - particular from travelers. a story on the front of the ft which i'm i on the front of the ft which i'm sure there will have you salivating. this is about possibly holding your head in your hands it has it set northern ireland protocol again and the brexit trade deal. it looks like the brexit trade deal. it looks like the british government is about to begin the process of trying to rewrite it. it begin the process of trying to rewrite it— rewrite it. it certainly a very fresh interpretation, - rewrite it. it certainly a very fresh interpretation, shall l rewrite it. it certainly a very. fresh interpretation, shall we rewrite it. it certainly a very - fresh interpretation, shall we say being presented as an opportunity for a fresh start for that which does fare some degree of rewriting. it's got a range of measures which i would really want to see the detail text or before i sign them at length. some seem to go a very long way beyond the use comfort zone. they keep coming back to discussions
10:45 pm
about the northern ireland protocol. the uk regards it as its own custom territory, that's what the protocol says. in practical terms the territory stayed in the eu single market for good and the eu is very concerned on their side that it doesn't become a back door into single market. and the uk wants to have the ability as it was relating the story to have an honesty box mechanism. effectively trying to get rid of border checks by irish seaboard checks, of course, by removing the requirement saying we have systems, we can have some labelling, this will prevent uk labelled goods that are specifically for it near than ilan entering these market. some of those ideas aren't completely novel. some are actually in the great. for the northern ireland protocol itself. however there are mechanisms that the eu felt comfort in comfortable with is a short—term option. something in eu

will regard as a wish list and words
