Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers


With me are Martin Bentham, who's the Home Affairs Editor for the


Evening Standard and the broadcaster and campaigner, Lynne Faulds Wood.


Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...


The Turkish election is the main story for the FT.


The paper says the result is a "triumph" for President Erdogan


after his setback at the polls earlier in the year.


The Metro has a striking picture of a child's shoe


amid the wreckage of the Russian airliner which crashed in Egypt.


the Guardian has a warning from a leading Tory MP that new


surveillance plans will only be backed by the Commons


if they include some form of judicial consent.


The Telegraph leads with new research which claims one


in four cancers are diagnosed in A departments.


According to the i couples struggling to have children are


increasingly likely to be denied NHS-funded fertility treatment.


The Express says a new blood test could help identify healthy


The top story in the Mail is summed up in its headline:


And finally, the Times leads on Jeremy Corbyn's support for the vote


Let's begin with the Daily Mail and the headline which we just


mentioned. Hackers targeting pensioners, using details stolen by


TalkTalk and other firms to prey on the elderly. It just smacks of a


kind of story you would have done. I would have. It is good but the


government has done on pensions. They have really freed them up and


so on but even savvy people like me who have spent ten years


investigating these things, we took people who looks after hours before


the financial on spend the -- ombudsman and learned a lot more.


Many in their 60s - 90s have taken their pensions out and the criminals


are after them. Like TalkTalk, there is a list of how many, I think there


were 15,000 of them according to the mail e-mail, who are in the age


group that would be very tasty to the conmen. A lot of people are


vulnerable because they are not savvy, they are kind and trusting


and they're not expecting when they get a call from someone from


TalkTalk that it is a conmen impersonating them. Their details


are being sold on the dark web, there are things called suckers


lists which are particularly attractive to conmen because they


know your age, and it got your bank account. So it could sound quite


plausible, potentially? I think that is the problem. If you think your


personal details might have gone astray because of things like the


TalkTalk hacking case, and you think therefore that someone might call


you to talk about it, potentially people can be tried in this way.


Unfortunately, for many years, criminals have tried to do this type


of scam, sending e-mails to people and calling them. Their very


successful. They are. Hopefully as people become more and more aware it


will become harder to do but unfortunately, it seems however


often the messages communicated not to respond or give out your bank


details come out there are still people who it and still fall for


it. I feel the government didn't do enough to protect them and it is


coming home to roost. The Times. Jeremy Corbyn's praises rebels in


the Scottish Labour Party. They were meeting this weekend and they have


voted to scrap Trident -- praised. The Scottish Labour leader wants to


retain it but Jeremy Corbyn says it is a sign that democracy has opened


up and that he will take their views into account when they hold their


defence meeting. That is fair enough. If the party decides they


don't want to have Trident, that is the way they will decide ultimately


although the leadership clearly doesn't feel that way at the


moment. There are people within the leadership, Jeremy Corbyn obviously


doesn't want to have it himself, but the deputy one set. There is a long


list of people in the shadow cabinet to our in favour of retaining


Trident and it will be very difficult for them to resolve. I


would guess that within the party itself, at the grassroots level,


many would be against it. The point they're making here in the Times is


that, for 60 years, Labour and the Tories have agreed to keep Trident


and now suddenly the Labour Party has completely split and you don't


know where it is going to go. Many people want to support Trident


because otherwise we would become vulnerable in the world and it also


loses thousands of jobs. Independent has a health story about IVF on the


NHS. This is the fact that there is not enough money around to give


everybody as many rounds of NHS funded IVF that they might have had


in the past. They say you should have three rounds if you are


entitled to it, and in fact, you can have much more success if you do it


that way. Broadly speaking, we have one round across -- we have had


three rounds across the country, at least, which has an element of


fairness, but now IVF is being cut. You think that is not a bad idea? I


don't think it is a good idea, in the sense that I believe everyone


should have a help for everything they needed and wanted if money was


not an issue. But if there is a limited amount of money, and of


course we have seen that the NHS needs ?8 billion according to Simon


Stevens, the NHS chief, before 2020, so it needs extra money just


to maintain that the current level, then unfortunately, there are going


to be difficult decisions and some areas that cannot be provided for.


We know how lovely it is to have children. It is a serious sadness if


you can't. I don't think it is a right for people to have children. I


would personally rather that people who are suffering from


life-threatening illnesses, or those who are elderly or can't move around


properly, that money was spent on those people. The Daily Mirror,


holiday jet blown up in midair. Blown up? The Daily Mirror and the


Sun are both saying experts say it was a bomb but there is no evidence


of that at the time. Some other papers are reporting there was a


tail strike but this reticular plane had banged its tail when it was


landing earlier which could have done damage -- particular. We do


know that it is a tragedy and there is a picture of a small child's shoe


in that picture and that is the saddest thing, because 225 people


have died. Nobody has talked about this yet, but if it did turn out to


be a terrorist attack, this could be very significant in relation to


Russian involvement in Syria. There is a theory that it will put


pressure on Putin internally but I think the reverse is probably true.


It will harden his resolve. Whenever he has had people, whether it be


Chechens and so on, engaging in terrorism against him, he has always


had back pretty hard. If it did turn out to be the Islamic State who have


made this claim, which has been denied elsewhere, if it did turn out


to be damned, you might well see Russian involvement in Syria stepped


up and who knows what the consequences might be -- to be


damn. They've got the black boxes. It could well turn out to be an


awful tragic accident. It seems more likely. We just don't know at the


moment. The Guardian, President's gamble on fear pays off. This is


looking at what has happened in Turkey. The AK Party lost his


majority five months ago and had another election and they have won


enough to govern alone -- its. Since the last election, there has been a


lot of instability in Turkey. Several terrorist attacks by, it


appears, Islamic State. Although it is possible that the governing party


were conniving in this in some shape or form. There has been increased


aggression towards the Kurds in this increasingly divisive conflict. This


story is getting at that. That resident Erdogan -- president, has


used the conflict to per try himself as a strongman who can suppress all


of this -- portrayed. This article says that Erdogan calculated he


could turn the vote around by playing the, if you don't vote for


me, you don't know what you might get card. They know what they're


going to get if they don't vote for him, a lot of them. Also the media


was very much in his favour. That's because he crashes his opponents.


But the trouble is, this is a very conservative government that has


taken over, and I am a bit worried about the position of women in


Turkey in the future. They prefer to have one party and government rather


than the coalition, so it seems. The Daily Telegraph, one in four cancers


diagnosed in Accident and Emergency and if that is where you are


diagnosed, you often don't have long. My best friend was eventually


diagnosed in Accident and Emergency. Only a third of people


live for a year or longer. We have to get away from this at the moment,


where people don't really know what cancer is. Personally, I don't think


the government's campaign on cancer symptoms were very good. I had bowel


cancer 20 years ago, and the kind of symptoms that people list, tiredness


and losing weight. If you are waiting for that, it is highly


likely you're going to die. We talk about cancer as if it is one thing


but it is so many different types with different symptoms. Precisely.


But how many people know what the symptoms are? Me! I note you do. But


there are people who are less expert then you -- know. We have hundreds


of cancer charities and we found it years ago that we were among the


worst in Western Europe according to awareness. We have to get away from


what we are doing at the moment, which is expecting GPs to diagnose


them and pass them onto good services. A lot of people don't want


to be a burden on the NHS unnecessarily, today? And they know


because we are reporting it all the time that the NHS is creaking at the


seams -- do they? This is the interesting paradox. On one hand we


have people going to walk to GPs and inundating their surgeries with


often, allegedly fairly minor ailments sometimes and GPs can't


cope with the number of people turning up. And at the same time,


the stores just the principal problem is not the GPs are not


diagnosing it, but it is down to the average person who waits at home too


long and then turns up when it is too late. I don't think there is


evidence for that at the moment. I'm just talking about what the story is


saying. They are saying people go to Accident and Emergency. We are going


to page three of the Times. This is a 14-year-old boy who was in New


Zealand fan, tell us what happened to him? He ran onto the pitch to see


the New Zealand winners, this 14-year-old boy, and as the New


Zealand player, Sonny Bill Williams, gave him the winner's


metals. He got smoked by security guard. Completely. He got completely


flattened by the security guard, and a rugby player turned around and


picked them up and then gave him his metal which is obviously fantastic


although he seems to undermine it slightly by saying, I would have


given it to the security guard, but I picked him up and gave the medal


to his old lady. That is a bit of a gaffe. His mother is probably 35.


Look at this height difference. Sonny Bill Williams and that kid.


That is something he will never forget. It made everybody very


careful to see that happening. A lovely story. -- tearful. And it was


so nice that they won when they have such nice people playing for them.


Very nice way to end back to. Sentimental.
