new Hollywood satire, maps to the stars, starring Robert Pattinson and

:00:00.:00:00.

Julianne Moore. Plus, the rest of the week 's top releases with Mark

:00:00.:00:00.

Kermode. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:07.:00:18.

to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow.

:00:19.:00:29.

Let's have a sneak preview at the front pages before we look at them

:00:30.:00:35.

in more detail. The Sunday Mirror has created its own headlines

:00:36.:00:40.

tonight, leading with allegations that led to Conservative MP Brooks

:00:41.:00:44.

Newmark to leave his job. The Observer says the Conservative party

:00:45.:00:48.

is in chaos, following the defection of Mark Reckless and resignation of

:00:49.:00:59.

Brooks Newmark. David Cameron 's policy on Europe is now in turmoil

:01:00.:01:03.

according to the Sunday Times, a picture of the Amal Alamuddin, who

:01:04.:01:07.

has married George Clooney in Venice. There she is again on the

:01:08.:01:16.

front page of the Sunday Telegraph. The Daily Express has the same

:01:17.:01:23.

story, Tory chaos. I suppose we should begin with the

:01:24.:01:29.

Sunday Mirror. The most dramatic paper at the moment. Yes, this is

:01:30.:01:35.

the paper that discovered the background to the Mark Reckless

:01:36.:01:38.

story, a sex scandal involving him, they are making a big thing out of

:01:39.:01:43.

the Tory minister quitting over the six photos. Yes, it is the Sunday

:01:44.:01:53.

Mirror story. `` sex photos. He has not accepted the allegations but has

:01:54.:01:57.

resigned. We don't know the details to it. It is an important

:01:58.:02:01.

distinction to make. What in fact happened was that the allegations

:02:02.:02:09.

were put to him today, and very quickly he resigned. What we do know

:02:10.:02:14.

is that he took it seriously enough, and the story that was about to

:02:15.:02:19.

appear seriously enough and decided to quit. David Cameron replaced him

:02:20.:02:23.

immediately, there were no niceties about it, it seems that everyone

:02:24.:02:29.

accepted that he had to go. Let's move on to the Telegraph, so many

:02:30.:02:35.

newspapers have reported on that resignation, and the defection as

:02:36.:02:39.

well from the Sunday Telegraph, which does both. A picture on one

:02:40.:02:45.

side saying the minister to civil society quits over a sex scandal,

:02:46.:02:53.

Brooks Newmark, and then Mark Reckless. The headlines that David

:02:54.:02:55.

Cameron would love to have as he begins the Tory conference this

:02:56.:03:01.

week! Mark Reckless, the MP for Rochester and Strood, he has

:03:02.:03:04.

announced publicly at the UKIP conference he is joining them,

:03:05.:03:08.

leaving the Conservative party. The Telegraph has got quite a lot of

:03:09.:03:12.

detail, apparently this dates back to a furious row that Mr reckless

:03:13.:03:16.

had with the Prime Minister at Chequers last year, `` Mr Reckless.

:03:17.:03:27.

They played tennis and wore casual clothes. Reckless is quoted as

:03:28.:03:31.

saying that the Prime Minister was talking about how it was important

:03:32.:03:36.

for the party to be united, and then he inadvertently... He dropped Sarah

:03:37.:03:43.

Williston, a Conservative MP, into it. They said she interrupted, she

:03:44.:03:48.

said my people vote for me because they like and independently minded

:03:49.:03:53.

person, there was a spat, and Mr Reckless was extremely cross. He has

:03:54.:03:57.

been brooding and threatening on this for a year. He has decided to

:03:58.:04:02.

resign. It gives you an indication to the kind of man he is. I am sure

:04:03.:04:07.

you are among the journalists who have been phoning all of the

:04:08.:04:10.

Eurosceptic Conservative MPs to see if they are the next ones to go. He

:04:11.:04:15.

has been denying he would go? This is where it gets difficult for us,

:04:16.:04:19.

when we do fine. They say, it is not me. There was an interview at the

:04:20.:04:26.

end of last month where he said he would stay with the Conservative

:04:27.:04:30.

party, he said he thought it was the conservatives who had the best

:04:31.:04:34.

chance through the referendum giving independence to Britain, not UKIP. I

:04:35.:04:40.

always thought that the ones who were thinking of defecting would

:04:41.:04:44.

hang onto this, we saw how Douglas Carswell did in Clacton. That is one

:04:45.:04:52.

and a half weeks time. They are friends? Yes. You can see how cars

:04:53.:04:57.

welded, increasing his majority, and then they would think about

:04:58.:05:02.

defecting. Obviously Farage got them on board early, to coincide with the

:05:03.:05:07.

Doncaster conference. How much damage has been done? A lot,

:05:08.:05:11.

according to the papers. How much has been done? A minister has

:05:12.:05:17.

resigned, is that it? End of story, bad judgement... You have a second

:05:18.:05:21.

defection but it is a man who has been played down as a maverick in

:05:22.:05:26.

the past. Someone who cannot be trusted, according to Grant Shapps.

:05:27.:05:31.

It is not what you need right now. When you start the party

:05:32.:05:35.

conference, but you never have a Conservative party conference

:05:36.:05:38.

without one of these scandals on the eve! The reality is David Cameron

:05:39.:05:45.

has probably got a bit more. With the battle against Isis, and the

:05:46.:05:49.

decision to get involved with airstrikes there. There's no doubt

:05:50.:05:55.

that UKIP is a huge threat. In one of the papers, Michael Ashcroft

:05:56.:05:59.

polling shows that a lot of conservatives have left the Tory

:06:00.:06:03.

party, and will go with UKIP. It also attracts Labour voters

:06:04.:06:07.

though... As you said, David Cameron has a lot on his mind, particularly

:06:08.:06:16.

now we are involved in the US airstrikes over Iraq. Staying with

:06:17.:06:20.

the Telegraph, Hague warns... William Hague warns of Islamist

:06:21.:06:26.

terrorist plots as they fly this mission. What is he saying? As far

:06:27.:06:31.

as he can see, the threat to this country, which is important, that is

:06:32.:06:36.

the greatest it has been since he has been around, certainly since the

:06:37.:06:40.

government has been there. He's probably right. He says the military

:06:41.:06:48.

action was necessary, because the threat to us. We have to see where

:06:49.:06:52.

it goes next. We have generals in the paper saying that the air war

:06:53.:06:55.

will not be enough to deal with this. Of course they are right.

:06:56.:07:00.

David Cameron said the same thing. If we have a three`year war ahead,

:07:01.:07:07.

they have made a promise that we will not put combat troops on the

:07:08.:07:11.

ground, it could be a brash promise. At the UN this week, they

:07:12.:07:14.

were backing for a resolution to control the flow of British and

:07:15.:07:19.

American and other nationals, going into Syria and Iraq unbecoming

:07:20.:07:24.

Jihadis, it is a war with many fronts? That is what makes it

:07:25.:07:28.

difficult. David Cameron would not have secured the boat in the

:07:29.:07:33.

Commons... Had he left it open... `` of the vote. It will be required on

:07:34.:07:38.

a Commons vote. The mail on Sunday, like many papers, is focusing on the

:07:39.:07:43.

defection and resignation of the ministers, but a sad exclusive story

:07:44.:07:50.

in the front`page? Lynda Bellingham, the actress, best

:07:51.:07:58.

known... Although she has had a long and illustrious career as an actor,

:07:59.:08:04.

she is known as the oxo mum. She's been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

:08:05.:08:08.

It is a serialisation of her memoirs, incredibly moving. `` they

:08:09.:08:13.

are incredibly moving. She has said she has decided to die. When he read

:08:14.:08:19.

these pages, she has decided to the point of which she does not want any

:08:20.:08:25.

more chemotherapy. It is an interesting and touching story. It

:08:26.:08:30.

is important, I think. We have now moved away from shying away from

:08:31.:08:34.

talking about terminal diseases and cancer, to have grown`up

:08:35.:08:38.

conversations about death and the end of life. Chemotherapy, really,

:08:39.:08:45.

anyone, myself included, chemotherapy takes a lot out of you.

:08:46.:08:49.

There's only so much damage you can take. What is so moving about this,

:08:50.:08:54.

she is writing a book and is saying I would like to see another

:08:55.:08:57.

Christmas, but I am going to stop chemotherapy in November because it

:08:58.:09:00.

is beginning to destroy me and I want to die hole and I hope that

:09:01.:09:05.

will happen in January. She is very matter of fact, and when she said

:09:06.:09:09.

she'd made the decision and told the doctors and the family, it was a

:09:10.:09:15.

weight off her mind. `` whole. It is a brilliant read. Very moving, very

:09:16.:09:20.

sad. The Sunday Times, Trojan horse two in London. We had a number of

:09:21.:09:29.

schools in Birmingham which led to an investigation into the influence

:09:30.:09:32.

of Islamic fundamentalism within schools. The Sunday Times has

:09:33.:09:37.

suggested it is happening in London. They say Tower Hamlets. It's a

:09:38.:09:42.

bizarre story, it is one of those government sources... Officials at

:09:43.:09:45.

the Department for education, they are concerned that the situation in

:09:46.:09:49.

Tower Hamlets could be even worse than in Birmingham. We do not know

:09:50.:09:55.

any more than that. There is great concern about Islamic

:09:56.:09:59.

fundamentalists, attempting to infiltrate schools. And in Tower

:10:00.:10:04.

Hamlets, for obvious reasons, that is a place you would look at. I can

:10:05.:10:10.

imagine that Ofsted, and school governors and head teachers and

:10:11.:10:12.

local authorities, everybody involved in this will be far more

:10:13.:10:18.

were and more praise of the risks involved, because of Birmingham.

:10:19.:10:23.

People have felt there was nowhere to go, that is the problem in

:10:24.:10:27.

Birmingham. People who were worried did not have anywhere to go to

:10:28.:10:33.

express their concerns. I thought Michael Gove made a number of

:10:34.:10:35.

announcements about how they would tackle this in future? Saying there

:10:36.:10:40.

would be more transparency? Labour have an interesting policy on this.

:10:41.:10:43.

They would employ school standards directors, a new tier that goes into

:10:44.:10:49.

the education system. That will give parents and teachers somewhere they

:10:50.:10:54.

can go and say, we are worried about our child, or this school. And

:10:55.:10:58.

something can be done about it. That does not help the free schools? No.

:10:59.:11:04.

That is the problem. There are so many different systems. I think we

:11:05.:11:10.

have to thank George Clooney for some light relief! Absolutely! A bit

:11:11.:11:19.

of romance. What a picture of a mall alarm

:11:20.:11:27.

what a picture of Amal Alamuddin, looking radiant in red, and what a

:11:28.:11:35.

delight after all of this misery. It was the wedding to beat all

:11:36.:11:41.

weddings. I don't mean you can get a gondola in Venice for love nor

:11:42.:11:47.

money! It would take a lot of money! I wonder how tourists felt in

:11:48.:11:50.

Venice. They cordoned off an entire area of the grand Canal to stop

:11:51.:11:57.

paparazzi from going near! If I was there this weekend, I wouldn't be

:11:58.:12:01.

happy! We need a Liz Taylor Richard Burton thing, I am not suggesting

:12:02.:12:06.

they are as dysfunctional, but you need that quality. George Clooney

:12:07.:12:11.

has got that. He is, or was up until a few hours ago, the most eligible

:12:12.:12:17.

bachelor in the world. Great. It seems like a long marriage, going

:12:18.:12:23.

over two days! But there is a lot of drinking! Fascinating, Sandra

:12:24.:12:32.

Bullock, they are best friends, George Clooney and Sandra Bullock.

:12:33.:12:41.

Because of the film Gravity. I wish them well, no doubt we will be

:12:42.:12:45.

seeing those pictures and an exclusive deal. There is one with

:12:46.:12:50.

Vogue, the fee is going to George Clooney' charity in da four. Good to

:12:51.:12:54.

hear. Thank you for taking us through the papers. We will have the

:12:55.:13:03.

latest at midnight, on Mark Reckless becoming the second MP to defect to

:13:04.:13:07.

UKIP in the last month. Coming up, Sportsday.
