writing that the responsibility will lie with hospitals to charge foreign nationals wanting medical treatment. rent revolution — that's the headline on the front of the metro, referring to a shift in tone by the conservatives‘ from their ‘right to buy‘ policy, towards affordable homes to rent. the ft has a picture of the french far right leader marine le pen — as she launched her presidential bid today. but the newspaper leads with comments from some leaders from britain's biggest companies warning that companies are already suffering because of brexit. the guardian looks at the controversial travel ban imposed by donald trump, but rejected by a us appeals court. and staying with trump — the i reports that some mps and staying with trump — the i reports that some mps are threatening to boycott a state visit by the us president. blackmailing beckham — the mirror reports on an apparent one million pound plot over hacked emails from david beckham. plot, it is a word onlyjournalists
use. plot, it is a word onlyjournalists use. let's start with marine le pen, one of several french president shall hopefuls who launched their campaign this weekend. leon seems to be the city of choice. marine le pen joint election race by attacking globalisation. hersupport joint election race by attacking globalisation. her support base have made her so popular and put the and enviable position and it reminds us of how you keep managed to appeal to a desperate group of people. —— ukip. she is saying she is freeing them of globalisation, islamic fundamentalism and european union. what is at stake in this election is that the continuity of france as a free nation, the very existence of
oui’ free nation, the very existence of our people. she is reaching out, you we re our people. she is reaching out, you were saying, you have a sense of what is going on on the ground whereas i reading what is on the papers. people say she will win in round one but not round super you are saying in the central parts of france people feeling more connected with her? the equivalent of the rustbelt where the old industrial park, new industries came in at the end of the wall, an interesting survey in the new york times in the international european edition, going through a number of towns and cities and small villages, very mixed but the swing was absolutely palpable of traditional, conservative supporters saying she
is the one. watching the television footage of her rally, she had written across the screen the simple slogan — in the name of the people. that is trump, that is nigel farage. very successful, charismatic banker but will be much together and it is not the same thing and he is part of the elite she is talking to, emmanuel macron. she is saying the use of the failed by muslim women is a threat to french culture and values. that is nothing new. it is not that it is not going to unify everyone. she once the distance herself from her father,
everyone. she once the distance herself from herfather, the everyone. she once the distance herself from her father, the founder of the party. she is reaching out beyond that and looking at the footage from the bbc coverage, who was in the audience? students, teachers, private and is. they are saying this is the woman who can ta ke saying this is the woman who can take us through. —— private and public set this. now the reason the scandal by francois fillon. he is fading away and that what you have is the outsiders coming forward but they are both political... they have been around a lot and they are coming forward. is her thing about the eu and she is saying she wants
french citizens to feel french again, she wants the european union to bea again, she wants the european union to be a union of nations, very much in the john major, david cameron view and emmanuel macron says, no, we come together, the big project of the ever coming together and i think that will be a real division and you are getting a big swing away. before the brexit debate, according to an analysis, more french were opposed to the eu than in the british electorate so watch out. yes, she will win first round and lose on the second, do not count on it. you heard it from mr fox, remember. in the times, one in six wards facing axe to try and save some money which
is extraordinary how overcrowded some hospitals are. it looks as if they are trying to look to rebalance services but at the same time they are saying to close a hole in the budget as well. it is a big hole. it is but more and more money has gone in. it seems to be demand is outgrowing the extra amount of money. whether it is people's expectations, people living longer, the pharmaceutical industry, what ever it is, we need to look at it. instead of a tribal divide, people are saying what are we going to do.
in more recent years, the actual amount of money spent on the nhs has gone down. slightly more than the gdp we were spending before. the amount nhs england said they needed was handed to them when david cameron and george osborne came in. the next £20 million was given to them. foreign patients to pay up front for nhs care. hospitals will be legally obliged to try to recover this money but if somebody comes in and really need attention, do you present them with a credit card machine? exactly. it is so difficult. with so many of these ideas, one understands why it they are saying it but it is a question of enforcement. how are you going to check? emergency care is something
different, surely. from the telegraph, a black all of 22 million. but 500 million in the times. it you do not pay into this in system you cannot expect to be using it. we do not know because nobody has ever been a really questioned at the front desk. it could ea significant figure. you have the said proof of eligibility is needed. people pay. people having hospital treatment delayed or cancelled and somewhat coming in from abroad is taking their place. lots of inequality. people will have to pay. in the daily mail, this
idea, the emphasis being on renting rather than home ownership. downsizing revolution. the desperate minister saying you will be given incentives to free up your homes — what incentives? exactly. he doesn't sound pretty desperate. the quotes are not really fit what he seems to be trying to say. the housing minister saying to people like me, you do not have your children at home but you may have other things, squirrels in the roof, a computer, you have to downsize. what is the incentive to get out? to go into sheltered accommodation! a healthy sector should nary an aura even in the 80s, that is a fully shut
statement. ——a healthy 70—year—old. people live much older. many of us can expect to live into your 90s and you are suddenly expect that with horrendous daily deals. is this an end to the conservative mantra, almost, home ownership for everybody is gone for good? everybody still despise to home ownership but what we have got is not a single silver bullet to solve the problem on housing affordability. 300,000 extra people coming in a year. we have to house of them. we have said for yea rs house of them. we have said for years we need to build more homes. not enough houses and inbuilt. most people in their home have thought about downsizing if they can release the money. you have to help with the
rent costs. build more housing. that is the only way forward but margaret thatcher... it has moved on. a different solution. it is a different solution. it is a different country. rebel attacks and all sorts of ingenious amendments tabled to put a spanner in the works? over tabled to put a spanner in the works? 0ver100 tabled to put a spanner in the works? over 100 amendments and some of the ones where people are trying to apply — one that brexit can be treated as if cardiff airport. people have said we want brexit... that people have spoken. like any other democratic vote, the majority.
a slight margin. what about the minority? do we not have a democracy? you are all remainers said he did not quite get... i... i agree with you but this marking around with amendments is complete nonsense. what are these people, they are growing smoke... do not say that word. this is where our prime minister has to say, we need to see what is going to come out in the detail, it is the devil in the details. sorry to coin and other... thinking of marine le pen and the elections in europe, europe is going to bea elections in europe, europe is going to be a very, very different place
