tackle the problem of illegal immigrants trying to enter Britain

through the French port of Calais. The Duke of Cambridge joins in

:00:00.:00:00.

celebrations to mark 50 years of independence on his state visit to

:00:00.:00:00.

Malta. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:07.:00:18.

to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are

:00:19.:00:23.

the broadcaster and campaigner David Akinsanya, and the political

:00:24.:00:25.

commentator and journalist Miranda Green.

:00:26.:00:28.

Tomorrow's front pages now, starting with The Observer, leading with

:00:29.:00:31.

Labour plans to raise the minumum wage, as the party's conference

:00:32.:00:34.

prepares to get under way in Manchester.The Sunday Mirror has the

:00:35.:00:36.

same story with a very simple headline, reading '8 pounds an

:00:37.:00:54.

hour'. The Mail on Sunday says the Prime Minister has warned Ed

:00:55.:00:56.

Miliband not to block devolution for England in the wake of the Scottish

:00:57.:00:59.

referendum. A similar sentiment on the front of the Sunday Telegraph,

:01:00.:01:02.

this time from Justice Secretary Chris Grayling. Writing in the

:01:03.:01:05.

paper, he says Scotland should not gain any more tax`raising powers

:01:06.:01:08.

while Scottish MPs still have a say in English affairs.

:01:09.:01:09.

Miliband not to block devolution for England The Sunday Post features

:01:10.:01:11.

another 'vow' from Westminster leaders ` that further devolution

:01:12.:01:13.

for Scotland will be delivered. The Sunday Herald has a striking picture

:01:14.:01:16.

of St George's Square in Glasgow full of saltires, it was the only

:01:17.:01:19.

paper backing Indepedence before the referendum and the picture is a

:01:20.:01:22.

tribute to the Yes campaignThe Sunday Times continues the Scottish

:01:23.:01:25.

theme. This time former environment secretary Owen Patterson is

:01:26.:01:27.

criticising the Prime Minister, saying the cabinet wasn't even

:01:28.:01:29.

consulted about details of the referendum, including the question

:01:30.:01:31.

on the ballot paper. So let's begin.

:01:32.:01:36.

consulted about details of the referendum, Were you busy doing

:01:37.:01:40.

something else? I was looking at something else! Engrossed in the

:01:41.:01:45.

research! The Sunday... The mail on Sunday, two different front pages,

:01:46.:01:49.

depending on the addition you look at. Last hour we had a look at it.

:01:50.:01:54.

Outside of Scotland, what it looks like. This is David Cameron 's

:01:55.:02:02.

ultimatum, apparently, is a mail on Sunday poll shows the fury over the

:02:03.:02:06.

handouts for Scotland. On the right of the screen as the Scottish

:02:07.:02:11.

edition. Another poll, this time saying the Scotland people do back

:02:12.:02:15.

the SNP but don't back another referendum. I wonder how widely

:02:16.:02:21.

reflected that is, on social media there are a lot of people who wanted

:02:22.:02:25.

independence. They say they will never give it up. You would imagine

:02:26.:02:28.

that those people are going to continuously call for that.

:02:29.:02:33.

Actually, they want the SNP in charge but I want another debate.

:02:34.:02:40.

They want to get on with them as the governing party. Exhausted though, I

:02:41.:02:44.

would think, a lot of people. You have been writing about it for

:02:45.:02:49.

months? Yes, it has exhausted everyone. But, unfortunately, there

:02:50.:02:55.

are precedents for referendums being returned to before, perhaps, the

:02:56.:02:59.

whole nation is ready. In Canada, when Quebec voted to stay, there was

:03:00.:03:05.

the possibility of another referendum the whole time. There was

:03:06.:03:13.

another referendum. The joke was it was a never`endum. With this

:03:14.:03:19.

uncertainty, it could affect independence without people voting

:03:20.:03:23.

for it. People do not like to invest if they think the situation will

:03:24.:03:28.

change. It's a danger, the SNP is clearly choosing, as we have seen

:03:29.:03:31.

with the Alex Salmond interview that will be shown tomorrow, those of you

:03:32.:03:37.

who voted no, you have been conned. You will not get this huge promise

:03:38.:03:42.

of devolution honoured. We have heard that they will get it, there

:03:43.:03:46.

is a timetable that will be adhered to. It seemed to be promising

:03:47.:03:50.

everything would happen quickly but it is so complicated. You cannot

:03:51.:03:55.

wave a magic wand and over the weekend it is sorted extract and a

:03:56.:03:58.

lot of people are saying it will not get sorted in that time. Let's look

:03:59.:04:04.

at the Sunday Times. Top Tory/PM over the Scotland deal. Ed Miliband

:04:05.:04:13.

phase a revolt `` face. It has become bad tempered in a short

:04:14.:04:17.

period of time, after the unity between the parties in the

:04:18.:04:20.

referendum campaign itself. It is difficult to see how this is

:04:21.:04:25.

resolved. The Labour Party cannot afford to see those crucial 40 odd

:04:26.:04:32.

MPs they have in Scotland disappear, because it could alter their chances

:04:33.:04:36.

of ever having a majority to govern the UK again. The Tory party, David

:04:37.:04:41.

Cameron has a huge problem that he's promised things to the Scots, and

:04:42.:04:44.

these English MPs on the backbenchers are up in arms, trying

:04:45.:04:49.

to block the Scotland deal going ahead unless there is a whole bunch

:04:50.:04:53.

of new power was representing the English. It is a constitutional

:04:54.:04:59.

mess. And a huge contrast, I have to say, between the feeling of

:05:00.:05:03.

democratic joy, that we have seen on the streets of Scotland in the last

:05:04.:05:08.

few weeks. `` power was representing the English. Westminster is so

:05:09.:05:12.

unpopular, it will be even more so if you get this wrangling over

:05:13.:05:16.

arcane details of the Constitution to most people. ``powers. You have

:05:17.:05:24.

Cabinet people released recently putting in their pennies. It seems

:05:25.:05:29.

like it will be messy for a long time. Better. Let's stay with the

:05:30.:05:34.

Sunday Times, moving away from the referendum, it could please some and

:05:35.:05:43.

disappoint others, OFSTED chiefs slam lacks heads. Sir Michael

:05:44.:05:47.

Wilshaw has served there is a culture of casual acceptance of bad

:05:48.:05:51.

behaviour by the pupils that is wrecking education. It's funny, I

:05:52.:05:56.

watched a programme about a school in the East End a couple of weeks

:05:57.:06:01.

ago, watching the teachers dealing with disruptive pupils is difficult.

:06:02.:06:04.

What I was saying before is that when I went to schools, there were

:06:05.:06:09.

schools for children with emotional and behavioural problems, they were

:06:10.:06:14.

sent away to special schools. Now, those children are integrated into

:06:15.:06:17.

mainstream schools as much as they can. There are still places but

:06:18.:06:21.

maybe not enough? What confuses me is that with league tables, schools

:06:22.:06:27.

working to get rid of these children and exclude them, they could be

:06:28.:06:34.

affecting the school 's reputation. This again is saying there are

:06:35.:06:44.

700,000 children working in classrooms with disruptive

:06:45.:06:50.

children. It says too many teachers have come to accept this kind of

:06:51.:06:54.

low`level behaviour, how are they supposed to get on and teach? They

:06:55.:07:02.

need backup from somewhere? It is more complicated, there are actually

:07:03.:07:07.

problems, it seems, with academy schools excluding too many pupils to

:07:08.:07:12.

try to avoid this kind of problem. They want to up the academic

:07:13.:07:17.

performance, and have shoved a lot of kids out who were disruptive.

:07:18.:07:21.

There are more compensated things going on in the system. It's

:07:22.:07:26.

interesting, so Michael Wilshaw, the relatively new head of OFSTED, he

:07:27.:07:34.

was the head of an academy in Hackney, which turned round the life

:07:35.:07:38.

chances that the kids in the area by not only being academically

:07:39.:07:41.

excellent but being a strict environment. There's a huge emphasis

:07:42.:07:47.

on discipline, in a lot of those schools, where they have ramped up

:07:48.:07:51.

academic results, getting children into fantastic universities. It may

:07:52.:07:54.

not be for every school, but he comes from that background, being

:07:55.:07:58.

able to change things around with that emphasis. He wants to impose it

:07:59.:08:03.

on the whole system but will be facing resistance. How do you back

:08:04.:08:07.

it up? People of my generation remember the slipper and the cane,

:08:08.:08:11.

that will not come back. What sanctions do you have for those

:08:12.:08:16.

children? The whole school has to back it. It is a really difficult

:08:17.:08:19.

situation. I think there should be special schools for children who are

:08:20.:08:23.

that disruptive they are destroying chances of other children. There may

:08:24.:08:27.

be some but not as much provision as we need. Let's look at the Sunday

:08:28.:08:31.

Mirror, ?8 an hour, the Labour party 's pledge on the minimum wage. They

:08:32.:08:43.

are in Manchester for the Labour Party Conference, the plan is to

:08:44.:08:50.

boost pay by ?3000 per year. But that is not until 2020. Indeed, ?8

:08:51.:08:54.

an hour, what will that be worth by 2020? It is obvious that Ed Miliband

:08:55.:09:04.

wanted to re`emphasise, as he did in the last Labour Party Conference

:09:05.:09:07.

this time last year, that he is the one sticking up for those who did

:09:08.:09:12.

not benefit from the recovery, this whole cost of living crisis was the

:09:13.:09:17.

theme last year. Actually poverty campaigners may say that is not

:09:18.:09:22.

going to be enough, ?8 by 2020. Economists may say, had you actually

:09:23.:09:26.

done the projections as to whether it is affordable? Or whether you

:09:27.:09:29.

could be destroying jobs? That's the difficult thing with where you set

:09:30.:09:33.

the minimum wage. It managed to get on the front page of the Sunday

:09:34.:09:38.

Mirror. And he would do with a story like this. As you said earlier on,

:09:39.:09:42.

it is the companies who will have to pay this cost. It is whether he has

:09:43.:09:47.

to do something in government to give them a backhand so they can get

:09:48.:09:52.

that a pounds an hour. With this Scottish mess, he will have a

:09:53.:09:56.

difficult conference this week. To start off on a Sunday with at least

:09:57.:09:59.

two of the Sunday papers carrying the stories they want to emphasise

:10:00.:10:03.

rather than infighting within Labour as to what to do in Scotland is kind

:10:04.:10:08.

of a small victory for them anyway. It's still a far cry from the

:10:09.:10:11.

campaign for a living wage, which, by 2020, would put it at maybe ?15

:10:12.:10:20.

per hour? Let's return to the Sunday Times.

:10:21.:10:29.

Where is it? You've come to my rescue so many times tonight! GCHQ

:10:30.:10:37.

recruits dyslexics buys. The surveillance agency is harnessing

:10:38.:10:40.

the minds of more than 100 dyslexic and dyspraxic spies to combat

:10:41.:10:44.

terrorism and foreign espionage. You've had a look at this more than

:10:45.:10:51.

I have. Why? It's interesting, the story says that people who, they

:10:52.:10:56.

call, have a neuro diverse intelligence... I've not heard that

:10:57.:11:00.

phrase before. They bring in different skill sets to bear. They

:11:01.:11:05.

say people who are not necessarily so good at deciphering words on the

:11:06.:11:10.

page, dyslexics, they are good at a different kind of analysis,

:11:11.:11:14.

detecting patterns, for example. That could be very useful in the

:11:15.:11:19.

kind of work that GCHQ does in processing large amounts of data to

:11:20.:11:23.

try to pick up patterns. It's interesting, in the past, we've had

:11:24.:11:27.

technology companies saying they are actively seeking out people on the

:11:28.:11:31.

autistic spectrum, people with Asperger's, maybe this is the start

:11:32.:11:35.

of something new? It's really exciting. It warms your heart, we

:11:36.:11:41.

know that people with dyslexia, given the right support, can do lots

:11:42.:11:46.

of things. To find something they are really good at, and they can do

:11:47.:11:50.

better than everyone else, that is fantastic. It's amazing, I've heard

:11:51.:11:54.

something new tonight. Neuro diversity! I will look out for that

:11:55.:11:58.

more and more. Thank you to both of you. Stay with

:11:59.:12:05.

us here on BBC News. At midnight, we will have the latest on the

:12:06.:12:13.

accusations that ministers will not devolve powers to Scotland.

:12:14.:12:17.
