Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers


With me are Isabel Hardman, Assistant Editor at the Spectator


and James Lyons, deputy political editor at the Sunday Times.


Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...


The Telegraph reports on the British tourists minutes away from take-off


who now find themselves stranded in Sharm el-Sheikh


after the government suspended all flights in and out of the resort.


The Guardian says the government was acting on specific intelligence


related to the crash, which it had received in the last 24 hours.


The Mirror has a photo of the plane wreckage with the stark headline,


There's a similar photo on the cover of the Times, which reports


on comments from US intelligence sources that IS was responsible


The Mail points out that David Cameron is the first world


leader to say the Russian airliner was downed by a bomb.


The Metro says the Government's concerns stem


from its own intelligence sources rather than anything coming out of


And finally, the FT is one of the only papers not

users of electricity to curb their consumption after an unexpected


Let's begin with the Daily Mirror which has a dramatic front-page. Not


safe to fly home, the British government do not think it is safe


so they are suspending flights and leaving many stranded. Yes, the


front page doesn't leave us guessing as to why this decision has been


taken, but I suppose the question was why on Wednesday the decision


was taken when the flight came down on Saturday. And the reason the


government has given is that they received intelligence that wasn't


part of the flight investigation that suggested this may well have


been as a result of a terrorist package. They feel as a


precautionary measure, it is important to work out whether


security measures at the airport are adequate and not have any flights


going in and out until they have done that. Some are suggesting they


are not adequate. It is pretty substandard at Sharm el-Sheikh. The


British ex- Brits on the ground were looking at this before the decision


was made but it is a huge logistical nightmare for the government to sort


out -- experts. If they are not trusting the airport, how do we get


them home? This is the sort of thing David Cameron will be talking about


tomorrow and we will probably have more emergency Cobra meetings. There


is some suggest then the RAF may be flying them out -- suggestion. This


is all very awkward as Egypt's president has arrived here tonight


to meet David Cameron and the Egyptians are very angry because


they say this is an overreaction that will destroy their tourist


industry. Yes, they say it is a premature and unwarranted reaction,


that is the statement from the country's Foreign Minister. They


were quick to say that they didn't think it was terrorist action. But


they're obviously still continuing their investigation. You can


understand from the British politician's point of view, that if


you have been passed intelligence which suggests it might have been


terrorism, why would you not take extra measures? If you didn't and it


came out after that you had known something and had contacted on it,


you can understand how justifiably furious people would be. Phillip


Hammond had a pretty stark response. He said the Foreign


Minister hadn't seen the information that Britain had. The Times says,


the British are saying that they know more about this than the


Egyptians do. And there are statements


a stone satellite imagery of the plane going down. -- based on


satellite imagery. If it is truly Islamic State, it is deeply


alarming, because it and their terrorist activity. This


is the point that Egyptian ministers have been making. They have been


warning for a while about terrorism moving from Syria to Egypt and now


they say the same thing is happening from Libya to Egypt and they are


worried their reaction will be as slow as it was in regards to their


worries about Libya. It is dominating the Guardian as well, but


they have interestingly highlighted the question of new surveillance


powers of the government here in terms of tackling terrorism, in


particular. They are suggesting Theresa May will face significant


opposition to that. This is very much the Guardian going with their


own agenda. Blazing a trail. Interestingly, I'm not sure if you


can call it a split at the moment but there are certainly tensions


within Labour. Andy Burnham has forcibly welcomed the package today


which is nowhere near as Taccone and as many had feared. -- draconian. I


am not sure Jeremy Corbyn will be very happy about it. It does call


into question Labour's policymaking process. Andy Burnham is normally a


fierce opponent of many government propositions but he said he


supported most of what Theresa May was announcing. He said the house


shouldn't call this the snooper's charter, because that would be


unhelpful. Andy Burnham is, how can I put this, in line with more


traditional Labour voters who don't live in North London, on issues like


this. One of the reasons he took this job is that he sees his role as


to try to keep the Labour Party as he would see it, sensible on issues


like this. Another issue of interesting timing because Theresa


May is presenting this on the same day that we have got what looks like


a really alarming terrorist threat from Islamic State. I'm not sure


there are a great many people who would be looking at what is


happening in Egypt who are overly concerned by the access that the


intelligence agencies get. Although, their computer records are going to


be stored for a year. Do you think that is alarming for some people? It


depends what the details of those records are. What we were told today


was that it would only be... The police would be able to access


without a warrant, only the basic web address that people have


visited. If you want to see what page you visited, you would need a


warrant. There are safeguards within the legislation that campaigners


have been asking for. But this is a huge bill and there is a lot of


detail. You can see civil liberties groups going through it with a fine


tooth comb. Americans haven't gotten this far in their bills? Haven't


they? Officially. Good point. The Independent has a picture of student


protests. Grants not debts, says one placard. It is a very different


vision of Britain than the one we have at the moment, where students


would probably like to be employed by business at some point. Don --


John McDonnell addressed the students today. They were running


down Victoria Street with smoke bombs and other things going on. Not


quite as dramatic as it was at the height of the tuition fee protests.


They haven't trashed as many things, but there is dismayed Labour


circles that John McDonnell has addressed these people. People are


asking why the leadership haven't learned from Jeremy Corbyn going to


Manchester and making an address their where there were really ugly


scenes and really terrible things happening -- there. People going


into the conference, women being threatened by all sorts of


protesters, and a lot of anti-Semitism as well. The fear


amongst Labour moderates is, you go along and address these people, they


behaved badly and you get the blame. Let's talk about the Times.


To talk about carparks being cleared to impose huge penalties, after a


case in which a chip shop owner lost a battle in the High Court over an


?85 charge, because he overstayed his parking space time by 56


minutes. That seems like rather a lot of money to pay. Private car


park companies can impose the sort of charges, according to this


ruling. This is a Supreme Court judgement which actually could also


have imprecations for people who missed dental appointments and to


abuse hotel Wi-Fi -- implications. I am not sure how that works but there


are wider replications at this point. Right. ?85 is ?1 50 a minute.


Quite steep. Christmas is coming and the i is a minding us that we have


the John Lewis advert coming. Bah humbug. I love Christmas. But it is


awesome and I love that too -- autumn, and Christmas is infringing


upon it right now. When does Christmas start? In December. Then


you can bring up your decorations and make lots of lovely decorations


but it is still fall. So we can start until you say? Christmas is a


brilliant time of year and I have three young children, but it is only


at the start of December where you can threaten to take away the


chocolate Advent calendar. The only time I dread is when that is over


and you have nothing left to threaten them with except beer --


except their birthday which is months away. Do you like the John


Lewis adverts? I do. We will pass that on.


Coming up next, it's time for Sportsday.
