Hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Caroline Frost, entertainment editor

:00:17.:00:19.

at the Huffington Post, and Robert Fox, defence editor

:00:20.:00:22.

I hope you have had a restful yuletide. Nice to see you back here.

:00:23.:00:31.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with:

:00:32.:00:32.

The Telegraph headlines the government's plan to build

:00:33.:00:35.

new garden towns in England to try to alleviate the housing crisis.

:00:36.:00:38.

It also reports on the hunt for the gunman who attacked

:00:39.:00:41.

The Daily Mail chooses to focus on the Queen

:00:42.:00:46.

missing church due to illness, saying she has not been seen

:00:47.:00:48.

The Guardian reports the demand from a top GP

:00:49.:00:53.

that the government must drop its plans to guarantee access

:00:54.:00:56.

to doctors at weekends or risk cuts to weekday services.

:00:57.:01:01.

Thousands of patients are waiting for hip and knee operations,

:01:02.:01:03.

It also quotes Princess Anne, who insists the Queen's

:01:04.:01:08.

The i bears the headline "smiling killer" -

:01:09.:01:13.

referring to the gunman who killed 39 people in Istanbul.

:01:14.:01:17.

And the Times also headlines the attack,

:01:18.:01:19.

reporting that the Islamic State - who claimed responsibility

:01:20.:01:21.

for the killings - has pledged a campaign of terror.

:01:22.:01:24.

Theresa May overhauling the honours system also makes

:01:25.:01:26.

And finally, the Mirror leads on the latest

:01:27.:01:31.

We will start with the ongoing hunt for the gunman who struck the

:01:32.:01:47.

Istanbul nightclub last night. We were reporting it around this time,

:01:48.:01:52.

two o'clock in the morning local time, last night. Smiling killer, it

:01:53.:01:59.

says. Shot victims one by one as they partied with friends. Hundreds

:02:00.:02:03.

and hundreds of people were in this particular nightclub. A massively

:02:04.:02:08.

popular place in Istanbul and well-known across Turkey. Very

:02:09.:02:11.

cosmopolitan as well. It was deliberately targeted. He was

:02:12.:02:16.

prepared all right. He was in some psychological state. The Express, on

:02:17.:02:21.

one of its inside pages, say this man is now believed to have been a

:02:22.:02:25.

Turkmen, possibly from Chechnya or eastern Afghanistan, or

:02:26.:02:31.

Turkmenistan, one of the most enclosed places. They are coming

:02:32.:02:36.

from a lot of different places now. What the Times is referring to, I

:02:37.:02:43.

think, is the very high profile spokesperson and operational

:02:44.:02:51.

manager, was killed at the end of September. His successor was any

:02:52.:02:54.

named three weeks ago and started saying the same things to which the

:02:55.:02:59.

Times is referring, namely lone wolves, go out and attack and do

:03:00.:03:04.

things on your own and do your own thing. As the Times gathers, this is

:03:05.:03:09.

the warning from UK security chiefs, that they are very worried this is

:03:10.:03:13.

the message that has gone out before. Use vehicles to drive into

:03:14.:03:19.

crowds. Don't bother with firearms if you are not particularly good.

:03:20.:03:27.

Use kidnap and cold still. As you mentioned it, the new-found campaign

:03:28.:03:32.

of terror after massacre. So many cities, London amongst them, had

:03:33.:03:36.

extra security measures, especially concrete barriers, to try to avert

:03:37.:03:39.

the kind of lorry attack you mentioned. We saw that only a few

:03:40.:03:44.

days before Christmas. On the one hand, you have this Western divines.

:03:45.:03:49.

We will continue as usual. All of the things we hold dear to our

:03:50.:03:53.

culture and communities, going out and revelling and having fun and

:03:54.:03:57.

celebrating Christmas -- western divines. These things have never

:03:58.:04:02.

been more important. But it is now accompanied by this very transparent

:04:03.:04:06.

ring of steel that we are at risk every time we do that. It is a

:04:07.:04:11.

double message and very complex. What scares me is this recruitment

:04:12.:04:15.

of lone wolves and the idea that in the past, we have had people trained

:04:16.:04:19.

in camps and allsorts of things with al-Qaeda. This is just if you are

:04:20.:04:24.

out there and believe what we believe, do your worst. It doesn't

:04:25.:04:29.

need the Internet, it doesn't need training, it doesn't need arms, it

:04:30.:04:34.

just needs a message. To me, that is the most frightening aspect.

:04:35.:04:37.

President Erdogan again saying he will root out terrorism, but he has

:04:38.:04:42.

that porous border. Four major attacks in four weeks. Very

:04:43.:04:48.

difficult for him. He has been punished. The propaganda runs that

:04:49.:04:53.

he has been punished for creating up to Russia. But he needs them for all

:04:54.:04:59.

kinds of things, especially gas supplies -- cosying. And getting

:05:00.:05:03.

Russian tourists on the beaches, which are being vacated by Western

:05:04.:05:07.

tourists. Let's book and a couple of health stories. Top GP urges them to

:05:08.:05:14.

drop the seven-day plan. If you open surgeries at the weekend, you can't

:05:15.:05:22.

have it all week. We remember David Cameron with great fanfare, this

:05:23.:05:27.

would be the 24/7 NHS. At that time there were rumblings about who would

:05:28.:05:30.

pay for it and what resources would be thin on the ground. So it has

:05:31.:05:36.

proved. This is a very senior GP. This is Britain's top GP sagging

:05:37.:05:43.

there is not the need for it, this is an empty promise -- saying.

:05:44.:05:47.

Nobody wants to book a GP appointment on a Sunday afternoon.

:05:48.:05:52.

Equally, where are the resources? Something will have to give. She

:05:53.:05:56.

says herself, there is no point filling a surgery with medical

:05:57.:06:00.

knowledge and experience if on Sunday afternoon, where is the

:06:01.:06:03.

person on Tuesday morning? These gaps will be showing. They talk

:06:04.:06:08.

about ringing people in from abroad. She says it is not sustainable. She

:06:09.:06:12.

was warning people would have to wait up to four weeks for an

:06:13.:06:17.

appointment -- bringing. Very interesting that one of the junior

:06:18.:06:20.

ministers of the outgoing coalition, the Liberal Democrat Norman Lamb,

:06:21.:06:28.

was saying absolutely but the GP seven days a week is a superficially

:06:29.:06:32.

attractive gimmick. The emperor has no clothes. It really was an

:06:33.:06:38.

extraordinary piece of typical David Cameron flannel for propaganda. That

:06:39.:06:43.

at the other help story on the Daily Express. Thousands face hip

:06:44.:06:47.

operation agony because they will have a long wait. But more and more

:06:48.:06:52.

people will need this kind of operation. We are all getting older.

:06:53.:06:59.

I am over 70 now. No! It is the new 45 for me. We have to go on

:07:00.:07:05.

reviewing the papers. It is longevity. We have to live with

:07:06.:07:08.

that. There are other stories in the paper about old-age healthcare. They

:07:09.:07:13.

are bringing people back from Benidorm who are experts having a

:07:14.:07:19.

hard time and come in and do shifts in old people's care homes on very

:07:20.:07:24.

little qualifications. But the cost of ageing is enormous. We are really

:07:25.:07:29.

just at the beginning of it. It will be quite normal for people to move

:07:30.:07:34.

into their 90s. Look at the Paul Quinn, or whoever it is, the amount

:07:35.:07:40.

of telegraphs they will have to send to centenarians is enormous. -- poor

:07:41.:07:49.

Queen. It is not that they are scarce, but demand is huge. Look at

:07:50.:07:54.

the Times. Theresa May blames David Cameron the controversial honours

:07:55.:07:58.

list. Every year, some of the names on the wrist raise eyebrows, the

:07:59.:08:02.

busier, the Prime Minister says this is not done to me -- list. Do you

:08:03.:08:09.

believe her? I don't know. We have to think some of the Home Office

:08:10.:08:12.

appointment is surely would have come under her watch in her previous

:08:13.:08:16.

status. However, it is interesting. She says it is all about... It ties

:08:17.:08:21.

into her just about managing campaign. She said she wants to

:08:22.:08:25.

prioritise people from very social mobility and allow the young to

:08:26.:08:32.

realise their potential. One or two will be filled by Victoria Beckham,

:08:33.:08:38.

I'm sure. But this year we have a an influx of sport personalities.

:08:39.:08:41.

People will say why should a sportsman be given a gong in

:08:42.:08:45.

addition to a medal he has already won? Why should people be given

:08:46.:08:53.

gongs having being paid for a job well done. Or not even well done

:08:54.:08:57.

according to some reporters. I think that is an interesting part of the

:08:58.:09:01.

story. This is obviously based on a bleak. The times are having a go at

:09:02.:09:06.

the Department of overseas aid. They say why is the Department

:09:07.:09:15.

Undersecretary getting a knighthood? I think we will hear a lot to this

:09:16.:09:21.

year about the 12 billion budget from the overseas aid agency, and it

:09:22.:09:27.

is not being spent in the right places because the vultures are

:09:28.:09:31.

circling. Everything from defence to health want a bit of that action.

:09:32.:09:36.

They are trying to do that. So this very pious aim to spend 0.7% of GDP

:09:37.:09:43.

in line with the United Nations on overseas aid, I think, the head

:09:44.:09:49.

prefect will say no to that before the year is out. We have done the

:09:50.:09:55.

times. Let's look at the back of the Telegraph. New towns to ease housing

:09:56.:10:00.

shortage. We have been talking for years about our inability to provide

:10:01.:10:04.

the housing supply that we need. But here is an idea, villages of up to

:10:05.:10:09.

10,000 homes. That is an almighty big village that could be created in

:10:10.:10:12.

certain parts of the country where people most want to be. That would

:10:13.:10:19.

be a city. I did not realise a village could be that large.

:10:20.:10:22.

Controversial if you already a big nose places and I want to see it

:10:23.:10:26.

extended any further. Especially if it is greenbelt land, is priced in

:10:27.:10:33.

the heart of the great pastures -- live in those places. In the face of

:10:34.:10:37.

Brexit and terrorism fears, Donald Trump about to take his role in the

:10:38.:10:43.

White House, the idea of new towns, I just think this is not something

:10:44.:10:49.

people will benefit from any time soon. This reads to me like good

:10:50.:10:53.

news for generate the first. They have to find parliamentary time to

:10:54.:10:57.

get it through. I slightly disagree with Caroline here. It is people in

:10:58.:11:01.

the inner cities, the really big cities like Manchester and

:11:02.:11:04.

Liverpool, and people coming out of studies. They are looking for a

:11:05.:11:09.

first start, even if it is only a modest flat. That is what they want.

:11:10.:11:17.

I don't think those young people want to go and live in semi-

:11:18.:11:20.

suburbanite was semi rural England. Dogs of Elsbury and Harlow. Where

:11:21.:11:29.

are the jobs to draw them in? There is a bit of a disconnect. I do think

:11:30.:11:36.

it is part of the Theresa May setting the stalled just in case we

:11:37.:11:40.

may have to have an early election. We should talk about that more. But

:11:41.:11:45.

we can't. Let's talk about the Royals. The Daily Mail, getting

:11:46.:11:56.

better, ma'am. She has missed church again and not been seen for weeks.

:11:57.:12:03.

24 days. I'm counting. She is the lady who said long ago she has to be

:12:04.:12:08.

seen to be believed. She knows about the importance of an appearance.

:12:09.:12:12.

Often in a beautiful blog colour and a big hat. Purpose of very said

:12:13.:12:17.

young children -- said young children can see her from afar. I'm

:12:18.:12:22.

sure she would not have wanted to missed church on Christmas Day, and

:12:23.:12:26.

again on New Year's day. She has a cold. This is the official line. Her

:12:27.:12:32.

daughter, Princess Anne, says she is better. She is in IT award lady who

:12:33.:12:37.

has an iron constitution and has enjoyed that all her life -- I am

:12:38.:12:42.

lady. She will be taking all sorts of medical opinions and advice on

:12:43.:12:46.

how to get rid of this hacking cough as soon as possible. The good news

:12:47.:12:52.

is that Prince Philip is back in action and bringing our way. 95

:12:53.:12:59.

years old. Hats off. 95! You are just a mere 70. Not a hip operation

:13:00.:13:08.

inside. Soldiering on without the Queen as you expect him to. But

:13:09.:13:11.

clearly disappointment to those hoping to catch a glimpse of the

:13:12.:13:15.

Queen. But anyone who was a supporter was obvious the

:13:16.:13:17.

understanding of why she was not there. Let us go on to page four of

:13:18.:13:23.

the Express. I love this one. Outdoor skills are lacking in the

:13:24.:13:27.

young. Young people are clueless when it comes to basic survival

:13:28.:13:31.

skills such as tying a knot or starting a fire up from scratch.

:13:32.:13:36.

This is where I wish I had brought a length of rope in so Caroline and

:13:37.:13:40.

Robert can show us a half page or a shipshape. There are so many

:13:41.:13:49.

programmes these day is like like Bear Grylls showing us how to

:13:50.:13:54.

survive in extreme conditions. They should have picked something up.

:13:55.:13:58.

They mostly appear on young teenager's apps, don't they? This is

:13:59.:14:10.

aiming at the app potato face. We all know how to make a fire outside.

:14:11.:14:14.

We rub to Boy Scouts together. LAUGHTER

:14:15.:14:19.

Young but decides you see people struggling. Pupils going out with

:14:20.:14:25.

picnics. Everything has been done by a certain delivery van or whatever

:14:26.:14:31.

-- people. You used it cook for half the world. Did you have an outdoorsy

:14:32.:14:37.

childhood? I was once lowered to a harbour and did an outward bound

:14:38.:14:41.

horrendous exhibition at age 12 something. We did all right. We tied

:14:42.:14:45.

knots and started fires and waded through mud. The final frontier was

:14:46.:14:49.

that each member of the team had to eat an entire pickled onion. This

:14:50.:14:55.

was the fallout. This was where everything collapsed. A wild pickled

:14:56.:15:00.

onion? I do agree. If you walked out on the street, the average

:15:01.:15:03.

12-year-old could tell you how to hack into the Pentagon but asked

:15:04.:15:07.

them, come the Apocalypse, which one will be standing, it will be this

:15:08.:15:12.

man. I with Robert. You can type not for all of us. You will be carrying

:15:13.:15:18.

the canteen. -- tying knots. That is it for the papers this hour. Nice to

:15:19.:15:25.

see you both. Happy New Year. Coming up next, it is Reporters.

:15:26.:15:28.
