and we will talk about how England's cricketers might fare in

retaining its next title `` their next title.

:00:14.:00:17.

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

:00:18.:00:21.

us tomorrow. Joining me from Inverness is Broadcaster and

:00:22.:00:23.

Journalist, Nicky Marr, and with me in the studio is Professor of Law at

:00:24.:00:26.

Pepperdine University, Colleen Graffy. It is good to have you both

:00:27.:00:36.

with us. Tomorrow's front pages, starting with... The Financial Times

:00:37.:00:40.

claims European Commission President Jean`Claude Juncker has offered

:00:41.:00:43.

David Cameron an "olive branch", by giving the UK's Lord Hill a key job

:00:44.:00:46.

overseeing EU finances. Money matters also dominate the front of

:00:47.:00:50.

the Daily Telegraph. This time it's the Bank of England governor's

:00:51.:00:53.

warning that Scotland may struggle to keep the pound, if it becomes

:00:54.:00:57.

independent. Scotland's Daily Record claims it's been a "Black Wednesday"

:00:58.:01:00.

for First Minister Alex Salmond, as a poll for the paper suggests the no

:01:01.:01:07.

campaign has a clear lead. The Guardian quotes fears that mortgage

:01:08.:01:10.

lending could dry up for Scottish homebuyers if Scotland votes for

:01:11.:01:15.

independence. Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and David Cameron are pictured

:01:16.:01:18.

on the front of the Metro, with the headline "United We Stand". They're

:01:19.:01:21.

joined forces to try to persuade Scotland to vote against

:01:22.:01:24.

independence. The I also focuses on the Westminster leaders campaigning

:01:25.:01:29.

in Scotland. A different weighty issue make the front page of the

:01:30.:01:34.

Times. They have the results of a study, which claims shaming and

:01:35.:01:37.

blaming overweight people only makes them heavier. And The Sun shows a

:01:38.:01:41.

picture of a security guard, who has become the first man to be signed

:01:42.:01:53.

off work with morning sickness. A bit of transference there one

:01:54.:02:06.

supposes. I have no idea at all! The Independent, the scramble for

:02:07.:02:10.

Scotland, a picture of the heavyweight political leaders all

:02:11.:02:20.

trying to sway votes. It has been a big day. It certainly has. I'm not

:02:21.:02:27.

sure if Scotland has had as many heavyweights here before at one

:02:28.:02:33.

time. It is an absolute scramble and since Sunday and that poll which put

:02:34.:02:38.

the Yes campaign slightly ahead, it has been a little bit undignified.

:02:39.:02:51.

Undignified? Do you think it has? No, I think it is just fascinating.

:02:52.:03:00.

The newspapers are incredibly exciting and dive question, has

:03:01.:03:04.

there been a development between how people are thinking... Is it with

:03:05.:03:09.

the head or the heart? Everyone is making comments about that `` and I

:03:10.:03:18.

have a question. Everyone is thinking it's a sort of movie style

:03:19.:03:26.

independence brigade, is that the change in the poll? What is

:03:27.:03:32.

happening? We have to remember that this is just one poll. The only one

:03:33.:03:38.

that matters is the one on the 18th which will decide whether or not

:03:39.:03:42.

Scotland will become independent. One pulled this way, one poll that

:03:43.:03:50.

way `` one poll. We have been living with this for the last couple of

:03:51.:03:58.

years. It is a bit of heart and head and I think that is why so many

:03:59.:04:03.

people are not yet decided. Many people would love Scotland to be

:04:04.:04:07.

independent. David Cameron saying it is not about the Tories, I think he

:04:08.:04:14.

is missing the point. For many people, what it is about, is looking

:04:15.:04:20.

at the success of the local government and seeing how well they

:04:21.:04:29.

have done. Thinking whether we could go our own way and do it all

:04:30.:04:33.

ourselves and become independent. With our heads, badge is how we are

:04:34.:04:40.

thinking, but then there is that fear about finances `` that is how.

:04:41.:04:49.

Moving on to the Times, financial turmoil hits Scotland. That is where

:04:50.:04:55.

all the rhetoric about the economy going down the toilet, if there is a

:04:56.:05:04.

vote for Yes, the oil running out, not being a member of European Union

:05:05.:05:08.

and forth, the No campaign would say that this is the result of a vote

:05:09.:05:18.

for independence. I do think that as the article points out, a stream of

:05:19.:05:24.

blue`chip companies broke cover to indicate the risks of independence.

:05:25.:05:32.

We also have the chief Secretary to the treasury saying that the

:05:33.:05:38.

economic case for separation is finally dawning on everyone and it

:05:39.:05:41.

will affect growth and jobs and investment. In terms of trade and

:05:42.:05:51.

investment, how we have the whole issue of ministers going out and

:05:52.:05:54.

trying to get investment for the UK, will Scotland have the capacity

:05:55.:06:00.

to do that individually? That with a question I had for you, you made the

:06:01.:06:05.

question about Hollywood and the importance of local government, to

:06:06.:06:11.

what extent are people looking at Scotland's lays globally? `` place.

:06:12.:06:20.

You would not have the UK pitching for the whole country. I think that

:06:21.:06:33.

is and `` an issue. In particular, when it comes to the question of

:06:34.:06:37.

Europe. A lot of thoughts are very concerned about the issue. ``

:06:38.:06:53.

Scot's. Many would rather be part of an independent Scotland in Europe

:06:54.:07:01.

then be added to the European Union altogether. Many Scottish voters,

:07:02.:07:10.

four yes voters especially, it is about being a world player. We are

:07:11.:07:16.

apparently the 14th wealthiest nation in the world. That is the one

:07:17.:07:24.

side but on the other, it is an entirely different statistic and

:07:25.:07:28.

that has been a story we have heard for many months. Just to back up

:07:29.:07:38.

what the Times is saying, the BBC has spoken to the standard life

:07:39.:07:46.

group and they have said that they will certainly move on a contingency

:07:47.:07:52.

plan if the independence vote goes forward. You have people wanting to

:07:53.:07:59.

take money out of the bank, or will be property impact if there is a

:08:00.:08:06.

vote `` there will be property impact if there is a Yes vote. Alex

:08:07.:08:20.

Salmond has nudged ahead. It is just one poll. The Yes campaign were

:08:21.:08:30.

ahead and I think we are not taking account of the 10% to our

:08:31.:08:36.

undecided. If the 3% have said no thanks. 47% of those who are already

:08:37.:08:43.

decided have obviously agreed but many people have not voted at all.

:08:44.:08:54.

The other front page of the Herald. Union turned the heat on Yes. The No

:08:55.:09:04.

campaign, according to this one is six points ahead. David Cameron,

:09:05.:09:13.

Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband made a calculated decision to push the

:09:14.:09:15.

heartfelt element of the union forward, say why it is important,

:09:16.:09:20.

not with their heads but with their hearts. Does that work on its own or

:09:21.:09:26.

is it this kind of pressure from big businesses that is going to affect

:09:27.:09:34.

the undecided voters? It goes back to the heart or the head question.

:09:35.:09:42.

Labour is really reaching out to their members because they are

:09:43.:09:45.

recognising what will happen with Scotland not part of the UK. The

:09:46.:09:52.

Labour vote that could swing the next election. It will have a big

:09:53.:09:59.

impact on them. I saw the cartoon in the Times of ISIS saying that they

:10:00.:10:05.

should invade now before the job is done of breaking up the country. The

:10:06.:10:12.

Guardian. Moving away from Scottish matters to president Obama preparing

:10:13.:10:19.

to step up in his fight against ISIS. He will give a speech

:10:20.:10:25.

outlining the strategy that he said he did not have last week but he now

:10:26.:10:39.

says he has, the `` thankfully. He is trying to row back from saying

:10:40.:10:43.

last week that he did not actually have a strategy. I don't think he

:10:44.:10:49.

actually meant that, just that they had decided which of the strategies

:10:50.:10:54.

they were going to go with. He will also apparently be saying that he

:10:55.:10:58.

does not need the approval of Congress which is what we saw when

:10:59.:11:02.

we were looking at chemical weapons in Syria. The other issue will be

:11:03.:11:08.

what action is actually taken in Syria because we have avoided

:11:09.:11:12.

wanting to have any strikes within Syria in the past. Only within

:11:13.:11:19.

Iraq. We have Secretary of State, John Kerry meeting with the Iraqi

:11:20.:11:24.

president and asking how they can have unity within their government

:11:25.:11:30.

because that political unity will be key in dealing with ISIS. Scotland

:11:31.:11:37.

obviously has a lot on their plate with the referendum but obviously

:11:38.:11:42.

this situation in Iraq and Syria must be playing on the minds of the

:11:43.:11:49.

people. It is, especially because the next hostage in line is

:11:50.:11:55.

Scottish. That makes it sound very parochial but it is something we are

:11:56.:12:01.

keeping a very close eye on. You are right, the big issue is what is

:12:02.:12:06.

happening this week but it is a huge issue, no doubt. ISIS are truly evil

:12:07.:12:14.

and something has to be done. It is a question of what can be done and

:12:15.:12:18.

how carefully it can be done in order to not have this escalate. And

:12:19.:12:23.

also what kind of coalition can be built. We would be more comfortable

:12:24.:12:29.

if we could have turkey involved but they also have hostages `` Turkey.

:12:30.:12:37.

We also wanted Saudi Arabia involved. Building a coalition in

:12:38.:12:44.

that area will be tricky. Moving onto the Daily Telegraph. Do you

:12:45.:12:53.

drive a diesel car? No, it is petrol. Unleaded? It is. That is the

:12:54.:13:03.

right answer because Boris Johnson is saying that diesel cars should be

:13:04.:13:08.

scrapped, with each driver paid ?2000 to do it. I very rarely agree

:13:09.:13:15.

with him. I do think many people feel very betrayed by this. They

:13:16.:13:18.

thought they were doing the right thing for the environment by

:13:19.:13:24.

purchasing one and now they will be penalized and have extra charges for

:13:25.:13:30.

going into London. He thinks we have to somehow compensate them, so let's

:13:31.:13:38.

give them a couple of grand. Do you think your government would like to

:13:39.:13:42.

follow the same path? I have not given that a second thought. I

:13:43.:13:51.

haven't a clue. A lot of people do feel cheated. They were encouraged

:13:52.:13:57.

to purchase diesel cars and got tax incentives to do so and now we're

:13:58.:14:02.

being told it was bad idea. Were people really being encouraged to

:14:03.:14:07.

purchase cars in London with the congestion charge? It was way before

:14:08.:14:13.

that. The United States did the same thing. With the Cash for Clunkers

:14:14.:14:25.

programme. It was a simple idea, beginning that it would be more

:14:26.:14:28.

effective to just purchase these cars off the road but it was not the

:14:29.:14:32.

best result. I hope somebody is looking at that case study to see if

:14:33.:14:37.

it will work here. It might just be better to jump towards encouraging

:14:38.:14:46.

the building of electric cars. With big plants being opened in the

:14:47.:14:48.

United States, it might revolutionize the whole process. The

:14:49.:14:55.

United States writing to the rescue as usual `` riding. Where has she

:14:56.:15:11.

gone? She's gone! Can you see me? It has been great having you.

:15:12.:15:20.

Stay with us here on BBC News. At midnight ` all the day's news from

:15:24.:15:26.

Westminster party leaders had any effect on undecided voters? But
