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

:00:15.:00:17.

With me are Laura Hughes, Political Correspondent

:00:18.:00:20.

at The Daily Telegraph and Jack Blanchard, Political Editor

:00:21.:00:22.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with:

:00:23.:00:31.

The Daily Telegraph says that Labour's immigration policy

:00:32.:00:33.

is in "disarray" after a rapid u-turn on free

:00:34.:00:35.

The i focuses on the Labour leader's comments on capping wages.

:00:36.:00:43.

"Corbyn's fat cat attack" is the headline.

:00:44.:00:50.

Mr Corbyn is pictured on the FT's front page,

:00:51.:00:52.

but the paper leads on a call by City bosses to delay full Brexit

:00:53.:00:55.

so companies can get used to new trading arrangements.

:00:56.:00:59.

The guard in pictures Claire Hollingworth, the veterinary war

:01:00.:01:05.

correspondence he broke the news of the Nazi invasion of Poland, who has

:01:06.:01:09.

died at the age of 105. Theresa May's senior aides have privately

:01:10.:01:15.

criticised the senior aides at the NHS.

:01:16.:01:25.

The death of 7-year-old Katie Rough in York is the lead

:01:26.:01:28.

And finally the Mirror has the latest evidence

:01:29.:01:31.

in the trial of Ian Stewart, who's accused of killing his

:01:32.:01:34.

Dominating many of the front pages is Jeremy Corbyn's speech in

:01:35.:01:41.

Peterborough. Both of you had the pleasure of getting on the train to

:01:42.:01:48.

head over there. Jack, as political editor at the Mirror, was it worth

:01:49.:01:53.

it? It always is, how much news he has created over the course of a 15

:01:54.:01:57.

minute speech. He is on the front page of almost every newspaper. OK,

:01:58.:02:03.

but the front page of the Telegraph, "Corbyn's migration policy in

:02:04.:02:07.

disarray, Labour leader forced into rapid U-turn". Was that what he was

:02:08.:02:13.

seeking? Clearly not. It is fair to say the day hasn't gone quite as

:02:14.:02:14.

they would have hoped. This is perhaps a bit harsh to say

:02:15.:02:22.

it is in disarray but once again, the communication coming out of

:02:23.:02:25.

Jeremy Corbyn's office has not been as good as it should have been.

:02:26.:02:29.

Journalists were briefed one line last night about what he was going

:02:30.:02:33.

to say. When he stood up and said that line he said with these extra

:02:34.:02:37.

caveats, suddenly added on into the speech that nobody had bothered to

:02:38.:02:42.

mention were going to be their last night and it changed the tone of

:02:43.:02:45.

what he was saying and left people confused about his position. Aurora,

:02:46.:02:49.

this is your headline, you read this story. It's a bit out of order

:02:50.:02:55.

according to Jack. -- Laura. There has been some serious confusion

:02:56.:02:59.

today. All journalists thought this morning, Jeremy Corbyn is saying the

:03:00.:03:03.

Labour Party is going to take a tougher stance on uncontrolled

:03:04.:03:06.

migration. They will say they are not wedded to free movement, that is

:03:07.:03:11.

what we were told. But then Jeremy Corbyn went on the airwaves this

:03:12.:03:14.

morning as did a series of interviews where he seemed to

:03:15.:03:18.

distance himself from his own words that had been briefed by his own

:03:19.:03:23.

office. They added... Before, we were told he would say we're not

:03:24.:03:26.

wedded to the policy when we went to Peter Brooke, line added "We are not

:03:27.:03:31.

ruling it out and it might be necessary if we want to have

:03:32.:03:34.

continued to have access to the single market" -- we went to

:03:35.:03:38.

Peterborough. Keir Starmer, the Shadow Brexit secretary was not in

:03:39.:03:42.

Peterborough with us, that was quite odd in itself. Over the weekend, Tom

:03:43.:03:47.

Watson, the deputy leader said we did not know the stance for Labour.

:03:48.:03:52.

The whole area seems to be confused. Labour MPs are still unhappy with

:03:53.:03:56.

it. Union leaders who watched Jeremy Corbyn to start speaking to the

:03:57.:04:00.

concerns of a lot of their voters. -- who want Jeremy Corbyn. A little

:04:01.:04:03.

birdie told me that Keir Starmer, who is the Brexit secretary, didn't

:04:04.:04:07.

have wind of this speech on Brexit from Jeremy Corbyn before the speech

:04:08.:04:14.

was made. I mean, those sorts of things do happen. LAUGHTER

:04:15.:04:17.

I don't know whether that is the case but it is possible. OK. The

:04:18.:04:21.

bigger picture is the Jeremy Corbyn has been mooted to make a big speech

:04:22.:04:26.

on Brexit today, to make clear what his position is. And we are coming

:04:27.:04:29.

away from it and people still aren't clear what his position is. That

:04:30.:04:34.

cannot be a good thing. That's not great, is it? The Financial Times.

:04:35.:04:39.

Another big pillar of his speech wasn't just Brexit but it was wages

:04:40.:04:45.

and the disparity between FTSE 100 CEOs earning megabucks at the top

:04:46.:04:52.

and folk on the shop floor. Corbyn and wage gap, Laura, the word

:04:53.:04:57.

appears again, confusion. Confusion. We all got very excited this

:04:58.:05:01.

morning. Is it just that you guys aren't very bright? LAUGHTER

:05:02.:05:05.

Is that what this is about? You just don't get it? That's very harsh! We

:05:06.:05:11.

all got very excited this morning because he went on the airwaves

:05:12.:05:14.

again and said, quite drastically, although he has said it before when

:05:15.:05:20.

he was a backbench MP, he would like to see a cap for the top earners in

:05:21.:05:24.

this country. Which went down like a... It didn't go down very well.

:05:25.:05:28.

His own advisers said it was a ludicrous idea. It wouldn't work.

:05:29.:05:31.

Could lead to a brain drain because people would leave the country. Lots

:05:32.:05:36.

of MPs said that's not fair. And it might be illegal, by the way! That

:05:37.:05:41.

little matter. I spoke to in MP earlier who made a good point,

:05:42.:05:45.

interesting, why should a working-class kid, who goes on to

:05:46.:05:48.

become a professional footballer, and pays his taxes, doesn't do

:05:49.:05:52.

anything to avoid paying taxes, why should he be penalised when wealthy

:05:53.:05:56.

young people will inherit a land of their wealthy parents who inherited

:05:57.:05:59.

it from their wealthy grandparents? You are not solving the problem.

:06:00.:06:05.

Confused, Jack? It certainly was confused. This was more confused

:06:06.:06:10.

than the immigration one. This is one step up with the confusion. No

:06:11.:06:14.

doubt when Jeremy Corbyn was on BBC radio, he was talking about this

:06:15.:06:17.

idea of having a maximum wage, that is what he was talking about. As

:06:18.:06:21.

Laura says, you floated the idea a few years ago when he wasn't the

:06:22.:06:27.

idea -- leader of the Labour Party. He did several interviews. We went

:06:28.:06:31.

to Peterborough this afternoon and there is no mention of it. He talks

:06:32.:06:35.

about other ways of reducing executive pay, which, by the way, is

:06:36.:06:38.

far too high and does need to come down. Yes. This idea wasn't in

:06:39.:06:44.

there. When he was asked about it afterwards he said, I quite

:06:45.:06:47.

preferred as the way of doing it through pay ratios where bosses

:06:48.:06:50.

can't be paid more than 20 times more than their lowest worker. That

:06:51.:06:54.

is fine but it wasn't what he was talking about this morning. This

:06:55.:06:58.

morning. Labour have to have a clear message because people do not follow

:06:59.:07:01.

these arguments slowly through the day in the way that Laura and I are

:07:02.:07:05.

paid to. Most people will just get a vague idea at the end of the day of

:07:06.:07:08.

what it is and unfortunately the only message coming through from the

:07:09.:07:12.

papers once again tomorrow is that it is confused. Is it? The Guardian,

:07:13.:07:19.

Corbyn steps up assault on fat cat salaries. The takeaway, Laura,

:07:20.:07:24.

there, is as far as the Guardian is concerned, he has put the disparity

:07:25.:07:28.

between the mega rich at the top and working people at the bottom on the

:07:29.:07:31.

agenda. That is the takeaway. All the other stuff, detail, is chaff.

:07:32.:07:39.

He's got that on there. That is basically what the Leave campaign

:07:40.:07:43.

did in Brexit and what Trump did. Does that make sense or was that

:07:44.:07:48.

rubbish? It makes sense. They lead on this, the headline, you are

:07:49.:07:51.

right, he has got the headline he would have wanted but they go on to

:07:52.:07:55.

the detail but today wasn't great. For Jeremy Corbyn. It is interesting

:07:56.:08:00.

because we have had there is a strategy that Corbyn's team have

:08:01.:08:04.

launched, which is to take a Trump style approach and, sort of, come

:08:05.:08:08.

out with these big statements. And even if they are not viable, it will

:08:09.:08:11.

get the attention of the public. And, actually, they might be quite

:08:12.:08:14.

popular because a lot of people will look at that headline and say, yes,

:08:15.:08:18.

they are paid too much. The hardest thing in the opposition is being

:08:19.:08:21.

heard. The worst thing that could happen is you become irrelevant.

:08:22.:08:25.

Jeremy Corbyn has inserted himself into the news today and although it

:08:26.:08:29.

might not have been done perfectly, a lot of people, they would get a

:08:30.:08:33.

vague impression, Jeremy Corbyn is against high pay. That is all they

:08:34.:08:37.

will get at them today and that is not a bad place for them to be in

:08:38.:08:40.

competitive last week when there was no sign of Jeremy Corbyn. --

:08:41.:08:46.

compared to last week. The times, Corbyn Gath derails bid to relaunch

:08:47.:08:52.

his leadership. -- gaff. As political editor of the Mirror,

:08:53.:08:58.

left-leaning paper, how can it be that the leader of the biggest

:08:59.:09:03.

political party in Europe, 400,000 members, money awash, is irrelevant?

:09:04.:09:11.

How can that be? How did that happen? I don't think it is that

:09:12.:09:16.

he's irrelevant,... You said he was trying to great relevance? Whenever

:09:17.:09:20.

you are the Leader of the Opposition, that is the challenge

:09:21.:09:23.

you face. Especially when we are Quadra years away from a general

:09:24.:09:26.

election. You are a long way from power -- you are four years. And he

:09:27.:09:31.

is not doing well in the polls. It is a long time before it is even

:09:32.:09:34.

possible Jeremy Corbyn could be Prime Minister. It is difficult to

:09:35.:09:40.

make yourself part of the news. To make yourself heard. You don't want

:09:41.:09:46.

headlines like Corbyn gaff derails anything, but it's better than not

:09:47.:09:50.

being talked about. Maybe. Laura, writing for the Daily Telegraph on

:09:51.:09:54.

the other side of the political spectrum, are you guys just sitting

:09:55.:09:58.

in the newsroom, thinking, "Yes, another Corbyn speech, we can have a

:09:59.:10:02.

go, we can have a laugh". Never! They totally are! No! You are,

:10:03.:10:09.

aren't you? Is you love that won't give him a chance. No, we do. A lot

:10:10.:10:13.

of our readers will look at this, and they will be...

:10:14.:10:17.

A lot of other people will vaguely hear it and think they are paid too

:10:18.:10:24.

much. There you go. Yes, these bosses earn too much. That is what

:10:25.:10:28.

they wanted but he should have been talking a bit more about the NHS

:10:29.:10:35.

today. Well, here we go. That's a nice segue, Laura, into the times.

:10:36.:10:40.

Number ten planes NHS chief hospital chaos. Find a scapegoat,

:10:41.:10:46.

potentially. -- blames the NHS chief for hospital chaos. There seems to

:10:47.:10:51.

be a row over money, as always. The head of the NHS apparently is

:10:52.:10:54.

unhappy that Theresa May in public has said you have had this money in

:10:55.:10:59.

2015 and we had an agreement and you had this but other departments are

:11:00.:11:02.

not getting the cash injections at this stage. It's winter, is normal

:11:03.:11:06.

for the NHS to be struggling at this time. They are not moving. Simon

:11:07.:11:10.

Stephens is coming out and making some quite strong statements before

:11:11.:11:17.

MPs. He is in front of a select committee tomorrow where he has

:11:18.:11:20.

criticised the government for things like this, bus passes. He says we

:11:21.:11:23.

need more money at number ten says he's not getting it. He is defending

:11:24.:11:28.

the workers he represents in the NHS. He is a civil servant, not a

:11:29.:11:33.

political figure and he is a very experienced manager and very

:11:34.:11:38.

respected. This appears to be an attempt by certain people at number

:11:39.:11:41.

ten to undermine him. Perhaps because they are worried about what

:11:42.:11:45.

he will say before MPs tomorrow afternoon when he appears before the

:11:46.:11:49.

select committee. The NHS winter crisis will be front and centre of

:11:50.:11:52.

that hearing and people will be watching him very closely for any

:11:53.:11:56.

sign that this is as bad as some people think it is. Senior people at

:11:57.:12:00.

number ten briefing against this guy, trying to undermine him and

:12:01.:12:05.

this is something of a pattern for Downing Street. Since this new team

:12:06.:12:08.

has come in with Theresa May, we have seen a succession of senior

:12:09.:12:12.

people walk out of their jobs from Ivan Rogers, the ambassador to the

:12:13.:12:17.

EU, are there were things against him, Mark Carney, the governor of

:12:18.:12:20.

the Bank of England will be stepping down sooner than we had thought. Jim

:12:21.:12:25.

O'Neill, a Treasury minister advising them on the northern

:12:26.:12:28.

powerhouse, walked out within days. There seems to be a clash between

:12:29.:12:33.

these senior figures, who have been often quite good at their jobs.

:12:34.:12:40.

Finally, the Daily Telegraph. A hero of mine. Claire Hollingworth. She

:12:41.:12:44.

happened to have the scoop of, I don't know, the last 300 years. The

:12:45.:12:51.

beginning of World War II. She was in the job for about three weeks, I

:12:52.:12:56.

think? Something like three days. She said, I'm going to do this, she

:12:57.:13:02.

got the scoop that all of us would only ever dream of within three

:13:03.:13:07.

days. What is remarkable about her, when she was doing this job at the

:13:08.:13:10.

Telegraph sent her to Poland, at that time, women were still, it was

:13:11.:13:15.

difficult with... To have these big careers. They were told, get

:13:16.:13:20.

married, go home and have children. Even more impressive she managed to

:13:21.:13:24.

do all of this at a time not like now, when women weren't brave

:13:25.:13:27.

enough, and she put to bed that I did that women couldn't be foreign

:13:28.:13:31.

correspondence. Inspirational. She was 27 years old at the time and

:13:32.:13:36.

went driving about the front line in a British embassy car. She found

:13:37.:13:40.

these German tanks, ready to invade, and came back, got the scoop, front

:13:41.:13:44.

page of the Telegraph, first big story, three days later the tanks

:13:45.:13:48.

came rolling in and she was the one that the British Embassy the

:13:49.:13:50.

invasion had happened. They didn't believe her. She had to put the

:13:51.:13:54.

phone out, so they could hear the tanks going past and the war had

:13:55.:13:59.

started. Proper journalism. It beats standing in a field listening to

:14:00.:14:04.

Jeremy Corbyn. LAUGHTER Rest in peace, and Laura, Jack, it's

:14:05.:14:08.

been good having you in the night. Don't forget all the front pages

:14:09.:14:11.

are online on the BBC News website where you can read a detailed review

:14:12.:14:14.

of the papers. It's all there for you,

:14:15.:14:16.

seven days a week. And you can see us there too,

:14:17.:14:20.

with each night's edition of the papers being posted

:14:21.:14:23.

on the page shortly

:14:24.:14:27.
