Bell for their Test side and he says he's got hit but failed to win back

:00:00.:00:00.

his place on the side -- he says he is gutted. That is all coming up

:00:00.:00:09.

after the Papers. Hello and welcome to

:00:10.:00:14.

our look ahead to what the papers With me are Emma Barnett, Women's

:00:15.:00:17.

Editor of the Telegraph and Kevin Tomorrow's front pages,

:00:18.:00:21.

starting with... The Independent says the permanent

:00:22.:00:28.

members of the UN Security Council are ready to declare common war

:00:29.:00:31.

against so called Islamic State. A warning

:00:32.:00:35.

from intelligence officials that IS could be trying to acquire chemical

:00:36.:00:37.

weapons is reported in the Express. The Telegraph says European

:00:38.:00:43.

ministers are hoping to tighten Europe's border controls,

:00:44.:00:45.

in the wake of the Paris attacks. The much-delayed report

:00:46.:00:49.

into the collapse of HBOS is The Metro's headline is "98%",

:00:50.:00:52.

a reference to the number of England's junior doctors who've

:00:53.:00:57.

voted in favour of a strike. The planned industrial action from

:00:58.:01:03.

the junior doctors also makes on The Mirror headline says this could

:01:04.:01:05.

be the first walkout of doctors And the Times carries a picture

:01:06.:01:11.

of Hasna Aitboulahcen, the woman who it's thought may have

:01:12.:01:15.

been the first female suicide bomber We'll start with the Independent.

:01:16.:01:33.

The world prepares a grand alliance against ISIS. If this turns out to

:01:34.:01:41.

be right, it is pretty significant. The received wisdom up until now has

:01:42.:01:45.

been that Russia would veto any attempt to get a new UN resolution

:01:46.:01:53.

on bombing Syria, Given President Putin's alliance with Bashar

:01:54.:01:59.

al-Assad. That is despite the fact that the Russians are already

:02:00.:02:09.

bombing in Syria -- given. The British government doesn't think the

:02:10.:02:13.

UN resolution is necessary although it would be preferable. I think it

:02:14.:02:16.

would give cover for David Cameron and perhaps put pressure on the

:02:17.:02:20.

likes of Labour to get on board with a bombing campaign involving the RAF

:02:21.:02:27.

in Syria. This could be pretty significant and what they are saying

:02:28.:02:30.

is that the French are going to bring forward a draft resolution

:02:31.:02:36.

which is looking quite positive. It is likely that all five security

:02:37.:02:41.

members will sign up to it. All five of those members have now lost

:02:42.:02:49.

members of their community to ISIS. Yes come at the Chinese joined that

:02:50.:02:52.

group this week. It is a striking picture and it is what I feel I need

:02:53.:02:56.

to see at the moment and I'm sure many people feel the same. Since the

:02:57.:03:03.

Paris attacks last Friday, everyone is wondering what's next. We just

:03:04.:03:09.

need to see some political might and leadership. Since the Iraq war, we

:03:10.:03:13.

have been a war weary nation, we don't want to do anything.

:03:14.:03:16.

Airstrikes have been voted against in the comments and this is the type

:03:17.:03:22.

of resolution that even though there is no detail about who is going to

:03:23.:03:25.

do what, it at least gives you the sense that the world is together and

:03:26.:03:29.

going to try to stand up against ISIS -- the Commons. How does it

:03:30.:03:40.

play domestically? We all know that Jeremy Corbyn has unsurprisingly

:03:41.:03:45.

been opposed to a Syria bombing campaign. His position is that he

:03:46.:03:50.

would need a UN resolution. People would be placed firmly in his court

:03:51.:03:55.

if we did get one. Interesting for the SNP as well. There is some

:03:56.:03:58.

confusion about what their position is. Overnight they have said they

:03:59.:04:04.

would look at it. Alex Salmond said there has been no change, they still

:04:05.:04:09.

want to UN resolution. That puts the pressure on them if there is a UN

:04:10.:04:12.

resolution to put the money where their mouth is. There is already

:04:13.:04:16.

lobbying going on by Theresa May along with headlines for the

:04:17.:04:23.

Spending Review, is George Osborne going to stop cutting our military?

:04:24.:04:28.

Are we going to have investment if we are essentially going to go to

:04:29.:04:32.

war? I don't think many people are comfortable with the cuts in the

:04:33.:04:36.

military budget. This government has gone with the 2% figure. It is the

:04:37.:04:45.

policing budget. They also need to make sure that community policing is

:04:46.:04:50.

just as important. The Sun is staying with the events in Paris but

:04:51.:04:55.

taking their own particular view with a particular reference to the

:04:56.:05:00.

woman who is now being... Well, certainly reported as Europe's first

:05:01.:05:07.

female suicide bomber. This says parking, boozing, smoking in boys

:05:08.:05:11.

and then she became a suicide bomber. She detonated herself in

:05:12.:05:15.

defence of the caliphate, herself and the mastermind behind these

:05:16.:05:20.

attacks, who is deathly her cousin but could also be her husband in

:05:21.:05:22.

this weird world that they exist in. She is supposedly the first

:05:23.:05:28.

female suicide bomber on European soil. It is a change in strategy for

:05:29.:05:35.

ISIL who have restricted themselves just to male fighters until this

:05:36.:05:39.

point although the rules say that if women are going to do anything

:05:40.:05:44.

violent, issues if they are under attack themselves so when the

:05:45.:05:47.

nonbelievers came in, that was her course of action -- it says. This is

:05:48.:05:55.

a woman, 26 years of age, we don't know much about her yet, who wasn't

:05:56.:05:59.

particularly religious and went within one year to covering her

:06:00.:06:04.

face. Is is the speed of that change. The speed of her

:06:05.:06:07.

transformation into this world is astonishing and very bewildering.

:06:08.:06:12.

The speed with which you go to such an extreme end of the spectrum... It

:06:13.:06:17.

is one thing becoming religious and about but to carry it to the extent

:06:18.:06:21.

that you would be prepared to kill people and yourself in such a short

:06:22.:06:27.

space of time is just remarkable. There needs to be some kind of study

:06:28.:06:31.

done, it would be fascinating to find out the thought process behind

:06:32.:06:34.

someone who thinks of that as a logical and sensible course of

:06:35.:06:40.

action. A very underreported story this week that certainly caught my

:06:41.:06:47.

eye was the mass graves of Yazidi women found killed by ISIL. Women

:06:48.:06:55.

that they see as the weaker sex most of the time, they should be inside

:06:56.:06:58.

and doing all the domestic chores, if they can't sell you for a packet

:06:59.:07:02.

of cigarettes to be a sex slave, they will bury you in a mass grave.

:07:03.:07:08.

They are not just committing atrocities here, this is what is

:07:09.:07:10.

happening to women back in the Middle East. We will link this to

:07:11.:07:17.

events in Paris, this article in the Guardian has to do with the border

:07:18.:07:24.

controls in the European Union. It is sort of questioning whether the

:07:25.:07:30.

proper measures are in place to stop Jihadis returning to Europe from

:07:31.:07:36.

Syria. This is how Abdelhamid Abaaoud crossed over on at least a

:07:37.:07:41.

couple of occasions between his home in Belgium and Syria. Obviously with

:07:42.:07:48.

awful consequences. One of the most striking fact coming up today in the

:07:49.:07:52.

Guardian is that the French authorities were not informed that

:07:53.:07:55.

he was back in Europe, even though he was one of the world's most

:07:56.:07:59.

wanted men. He managed to make his way back into mainland Europe three

:08:00.:08:05.

days after the Paris attacks. They had no idea that he was back.

:08:06.:08:13.

Clearly there are serious questions to be asked about how we keep these

:08:14.:08:19.

people out, or if they come in that we know they are in and countries

:08:20.:08:22.

work together to share intelligence. There are fears that

:08:23.:08:31.

so many people fleeing terror... If you have this huge swell of people

:08:32.:08:35.

trying to get to safety and just a small minority of them abuse that

:08:36.:08:38.

happened to Europe to cause more terror on European soil, how are

:08:39.:08:45.

human to deal with that? -- how are you meant to deal with that? It is

:08:46.:08:51.

so heartbreaking to read about people who are fleeing but this will

:08:52.:08:55.

also stoke up the very far right rhetoric about what we need to do to

:08:56.:09:00.

keep people out. This is the classic inflation. Let's talk about other

:09:01.:09:09.

knees. The hospital strike -- news. The first Doctors walk out in the

:09:10.:09:16.

history of the NHS. The Daily Mirror have chosen to splash out on this.

:09:17.:09:24.

They do support Jeremy Hunt. Quite, it is right up their street. I don't

:09:25.:09:29.

remember them ever having written about a strike before. Three

:09:30.:09:37.

quarters of the members voted. It is quite funny that the government are

:09:38.:09:45.

going through this trade union bill which is causing an awful lot of

:09:46.:09:52.

issues. It is going to make strikes legal, quite easily. Jeremy Hunt had

:09:53.:10:03.

98% of the workforce against him in the department that he runs. That is

:10:04.:10:11.

quite a marble. -- remarkable. They're going to have to go back to

:10:12.:10:15.

the drawing board and there is going to have to be some sort of give and

:10:16.:10:18.

take because the strikes are not far away. We will have to look at what

:10:19.:10:24.

side will give. We have to do something because you can't have

:10:25.:10:28.

doctors walk out on this level. It is unprecedented and has never

:10:29.:10:34.

happened in the history of the NHS. In the Telegraph, we had a young

:10:35.:10:37.

woman saying she didn't want to vote this way but she had to and they

:10:38.:10:40.

know what they're doing is going against the Hippocratic oath, they

:10:41.:10:46.

want to secure people's lives but you can consider that a guarantee of

:10:47.:10:52.

you have walked out. It is a very dangerous proposition -- that if

:10:53.:11:07.

you. The Times has this extraordinary story about

:11:08.:11:13.

transgender death. In an all-male prison in Leeds. This is the story

:11:14.:11:20.

of Vicki Thompson who was only 21 years of age. They have identified

:11:21.:11:33.

as a boy from a young age -- as a woman from a young age. We don't

:11:34.:11:37.

exactly know what the crime was here, but we know this person had

:11:38.:11:42.

said to their friends, if I am put in a male prison, I will kill

:11:43.:11:47.

myself. At the moment, she has been found dead and there is an inquiry

:11:48.:11:50.

into it. This follows from a recent case where this has happened. It is

:11:51.:11:54.

going to be something that the justice system has to catch up

:11:55.:11:59.

with. In order to be declared a different gender, you have to have

:12:00.:12:04.

something which is known as the gender recognition certificate. If

:12:05.:12:08.

you have that, you should be put in prison with people of the same

:12:09.:12:12.

gender as you but if you don't, and perhaps this person didn't, then you

:12:13.:12:16.

have to go where the gender on your birth certificate it dictates. --

:12:17.:12:23.

dictates. It is hard enough being in a tough than aria like prison that

:12:24.:12:30.

being there and wearing female clothing will not lead to anything

:12:31.:12:34.

other than a seriously difficult time -- scenario. You would think

:12:35.:12:44.

that someone in the situation, born a man but now a woman, should not be

:12:45.:12:48.

in a male prison. They are violent and dangerous places for a male

:12:49.:12:53.

prisoner to be in, but for someone who is living life as a woman, they

:12:54.:13:00.

are clearly going to be a target. And it has led to tragic

:13:01.:13:04.

consequences. We will finish on a lighter note. An hour ago, I give

:13:05.:13:08.

Emma the last word so I will give her the first word on this. German

:13:09.:13:16.

tomcats may have to go on a leash. I think this is a fantastic idea. I'm

:13:17.:13:22.

going to be hated by the people of Britain watching this, but I don't

:13:23.:13:27.

think that people who have dogs, or even cats, think about others who

:13:28.:13:30.

have no desire to share this world with their pets. And I say this

:13:31.:13:35.

having been minding my own business in the park recently and the dog

:13:36.:13:41.

came up and licked my plate. I was having a picnic with nice plates and

:13:42.:13:46.

the dog owner went, oh that's so cute! Maybe it was a compliment on

:13:47.:13:55.

your cooking. Full disclosure, my wife and I have two cats. Putting a

:13:56.:14:07.

leash on the is just morally wrong. Morally wrong... They are animals!

:14:08.:14:11.

Coming up next it's time for Sportsday.

:14:12.:14:26.

Hello I'm Olly Foster, here's what's coming up on Sporstday

:14:27.:14:29.

tonight, Eddie Jones looks like the man to put the wheels back
