Welcome to the Papers. Good evening to both of our guest is. Let's have


a look at some of the front pages. The Daily Star leading with the


downing of the Russian plane in Egypt last week. It says that spy


chiefs here suspect British jihadi is made the jet on. The Sunday


express says that extremists with British accents were overheard


celebrating the death of the passengers and crew. Aviation


experts say that tragedy will cause a fundamental overhaul of airport


security across the globe. The story also makes the front page of the


Sunday Telegraph. Its leaders are planned by the EU to pay African


countries to take back asylum seekers. The Mail on Sunday claims


that James Hewitt, Princess Diana's former lover, has offered some of


her private letters for sale. And, the Sunday Times reports a


high-profile footballers face losing millions of pounds after making poor


investment choices. So, the lack of developments on this


aircraft crash seems to lead everything. We have here on the


Independent, it is 50-50 that CCTV was not being watched. They have


spoken to an official at Sharm el-Sheikh airport, who spoke on the


condition of anonymity, and they said that there is closed circuit


TV, which is fair is much to spy on the employees as it is to spy on the


passengers, but that it was routinely not being watched. So,


there was a camera that was focused on the baggage handlers to make sure


that people were not putting stuff into luggage that shouldn't be there


for taking stuff out. Members of staff doing this. But that camera,


the feed was regularly not being watched. A 50-50 chance of it not


being watched. On the inside pages, CCTV station was routinely abandoned


at Sharm el-Sheikh airport, says the headline. This is focusing not just


on who may have got on the plane, who had access to it. Yes, there may


not have been a suicide bomber taking the bomb on the plane with


them, but it may have been somebody paid for somebody sympathetic to the


jihad who was working at the airport and may have slipped the bomb into


an item of baggage. Where is the baby getting this information from?


It is speaking anonymously to people at Sharm el-Sheikh, people working


there. They are also reporting that a lot of the CCTV cameras are


broken, so not working to begin with. They have identified various


slips in security at that airport in the days leading up to the plane


coming down. They are also referring to... Which is what a lot of them


are talking about, the jihadi chatter that is being picked up by


various intelligence agencies. Let's move on to the Sunday Express, whose


front pages dominated by that. This is not necessarily people involved,


is it? Will people reacting? We don't know, it is a very loosely


held together story. The Sunday Express is basically saying that


jihadis were overheard in Egypt celebrating the plane coming down,


but why wouldn't they be? That is what jihadi is going to do. To my


mind, given what the story says inside this is quite an inflammatory


headline, because what it says is that GCHQ could overhear jihadis in


Egypt celebrating the plane going down, and some of those celebrating


had British accents. Inside it says British link to jet bomb... Yes, and


then it says there has also been some internet traffic suggesting


that there was British involvement in the attack. This is from a GCHQ


source. That, clearly, if it is true, it would be a smoking gun or


closer to it. The quote from a GCHQ source, an anonymous source, goes on


to talk about the British jihadis in Egypt fighting with Islamic State,


who were trained in Syria and who have an electronics background.


Speculative then? Completely speculative, and the worry is that


this is all coming just as the UK is discussing whether to give more


surveillance powers to British intelligence. And here they are


saying, look! Look what we can hear with all our wonderful intercept


capacity. What they are hearing is not very much and nothing that is


very conclusive that all. At least not what they are telling us. I was


going to say, that is what the papers have managed to pick up.


Obviously they are mandatory and chatter -- monitoring chatter, which


isn't that clever if you are jihadis and if you are involved in a terror


attack. But if you are jihadis you will celebrate this. If he didn't


celebrate it you would have to review what you are doing as a


jihadi. The fact that they are celebrating it doesn't mean


anything, it is the implication that they are linked in any way. It is


internet chatter suggesting there was British involvement in the


attack, that is different from chatter celebrating it. And


different again from what it appears the Americans are saying, which is


on the front page of the Telegraph, which is that people at ISIS HQ were


also celebrating. There are so many different streams, lots of


celebrating going on in the Middle East, from bad people, apparently.


Certain parts of the Middle East. Obviously... Sometimes you get


multiple groups claiming responsibility for one attack. A lot


of Middle East experts say that Islamic State is not really in


Egypt, it is groups affiliated with or supporters of all who have


claimed a partnership with Islamic State who could be responsible for


this if it is a bomb. If it is, that will be the first time ferrite


Islamic State affiliates in the Egyptian Sinai, but if they were


behind it and it would be the first time they have internationalised


their attacks, because in the past year their attacks have mainly been


on Egyptian security and Egyptian... There have been attacks


in the north of Sinai, so nowhere near Sharm el-Sheikh. This would be


the first time they have got involved in something International.


With all of this, whether it is true or speculative, a lot of newspapers


are also reporting on scrutiny of airports not only in Sharma fake but


elsewhere in the world as well. There are some other news stories in


the papers tomorrow, shall we move on to the Telegraph and an attack on


a secret EU deal for migrants that is actually no longer a secret? It


has been leaked to the Sunday Telegraph. They are saying that the


EU has come up with a proposal to pay African countries to take back a


lot of the migrants who have come over to the EU during the course of


recent months. The quid African countries, who have skills


and experience which the EU economy needs. People like doctors,


entrepreneurs. Whoever it is in the EU who is coming up with us, I guess


that is how they would spend it. That they are trying to ensure that


the migration that does happen to the EU is migration that is


economically beneficial. The way the Telegraph is painting it is that


they are actually... Week, the EU taxpayer, are


effectively bribing African countries to take back the migrants


we don't want. To take back asylum seekers that we don't want, which is


kind of not There maybe some human rights groups


who have something to about that. Under international law you


being persecuted. Even if you are paying for it, yes! There is no easy


answer to the migrant crisis. is no easy answer but I don't think


this is the answer. No one claiming that there is an easy


answer, but this... I think this is really insidious, the idea of


ranking migrants entire... Asylum inside, that is


what -- asylum aside, that is how our entire immigration system


works. Who don't we want? People who clean our streets or people who run


our NHS? It wasn't that long ago that Theresa May said that we had an


asylum seeker system we are very proud of, but this doesn't sound


like something that will go down very well with many people. Clearly


if the quid pro quo for that is talking about economic migrants,


clearly if you are Doctor Who is being encouraged to come to the from


Africa, you are by definition not an asylum seeker. So there is some


muddy nest between which two categories of migration we are


talking about. All of that needs investigation on a case-by-case


basis. -- if you are are Doctor who is being encouraged. And here we


have a letter to Donald Tusk at a public letter by David Cameron that


will be released. This will be saying if you don't do this list of


things we will quit the EU. That doesn't seem like a great way to


start the negotiation, with an ultimatum. You risk those 27


European heads of state going, all right, fine, leave. It just seems a


bit of a weird way to enter this conversation. Are you saying this is


more for rust and it is for them? It is an open letter, so there is the


answer. I think it is interesting if Cameron is making a threat about an


exit from the EU, and one that he would support and campaign for in


the British referendum, which is coming up next year, then that may


be a shift from what we have seen before from this government, who


have been saying, we hope to get the deal that we can champion to the


British people for staying in the EU. You think it gives a mixed and


confusing message to the public from David Cameron, saying I want to stay


in but I'm willing to pull out, we have a referendum, you decide. It is


a spin doctor's nightmare. It always has been, there has within a


confused approach and it is because the party is completely about it.


You can hear the music, we have run out of time. They did before taking


us through the papers. Up next, The Film Review.
