Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers


With me are political commentator Miranda Green and Chris Hope,


the Daily Telegraph's Chief political correspondent.


The Financial Times leads with tomorrow's Autumn Statement,


saying the Chancellor will announce the biggest house building


George Osborne's plans also lead the Guardian - it says the axe is


The Metro goes with the Russian plane shot down by Turkey -


quoting President Putin as saying the action was a stab in the back.


The Times also has images of the plane and says Putin is


the Daily Telegraph has new guidance advising doctors to put


the protection of the public ahead of confidentiality and report


The greater risks of having a baby at the weekend are


The Daily Mirror has the same story, saying 770 babies die each year


And the Daily Express focuses on pensions and what could happen


to pensioners who rashly cash in their retirement savings.


I do not know about rationally cashing in, but let us look at a


story dominating the papers. The picture that is so striking. The


downing of the Russian jet by Turkey. It shows the dangers of


getting involved in a very compacted war zone. This Russian jet, the


Turks say went into their airspace. They were given 20 warning messages


in five minutes. And they were shot down. The Russians denied this. The


question is how will Putin react. The G20 meeting ended on a big note


with Putin saying that they could bring them all together and agree on


an alliance to attack ISIS. How worried should we be? It is a


dangerous moment. The independent's front-page story quotes resident


Obama asking everyone to remain calm. He says the priority is to


make sure the situation does not escalate. But we have a stand-off


between Russia and Nato. Turkey is guaranteed protection under the


terms of the organisation. Also, it is a dangerous moment because we


have had moments of progress with some sort of international joint


plan to tackle Syria. We have the quite successful G20, talks in


Vienna about the future of Syria and that UN resolution at the end of


last week. It was looking quite hopeful that despite this very


complex situation and Russia bombing all opponents to Assad, it looks as


if a web might be found to it. -- a way. Some of the analysts were


saying it is almost inevitable, because it is so confusion, the


situation. -- confusing. It is not the first time in Russian plane has


been warned. It looks as if this was going to happen at some point. The


illusion back to the Cuban missile crisis is very clever. -- allusion.


It is quite clean design. An extraordinary picture. We are


looking back right on 1962. What will Russia do next? It is very


evocative. The language has been very strong. We can now move on to


the FT. A couple of the paper is going big on the Autumn statement


coming out tomorrow. George Osborne, the things he will do and the things


he will not do. Fans of George Osborne will have a lot to him every


the TV. -- over. He has some political problems to try and


solve. As with so many chancellors, he has had some political


blindspots. He will have two correct some mistakes. Convincing


blue-collar Tories that he is on their side after the mistake that he


made a few weeks ago in announcing stringent cuts to working tax


credits. He has got to find a way of softening the blow to the working


poor and some other measures that will make it look as if he is


tackling the problems of ordinary people. One of those is housing.


According to this piece, 400,000 new homes. The question is, where are


they going? That is the concern of the Telegraph. Well -- where will


they go? These are affordable homes. We have got a huge boom in


population. They are trying to bring it down. The good news, there will


still be cuts. She is destined to get the deficit down. -- he is. We


have got a very narrow area to work with. They have been cutting things


the Tories have been strong on. That is what the Guardian looks at. They


are looking at the flipside. That is right. After Turkey and Paris, we


want to see more, not fewer police in the streets. That is right. He


has had battles with Theresa May to take over from David Cameron. Cannot


be an accident. It is because the deficit needs tackling and because


of the ring-fencing of other departments, but also because he is


insisting on building up a surplus. That really is debatable as to


whether it is such a virtue. Starting to damage the


infrastructure where we may need it. There are a lot of subplots. We will


be looking carefully at the faces on the front bench to see it who has


done well. But there is also the future leadership battle. That is


right. Theresa May, all will be watching her face with interest.


There is also the Business Secretary, who was seen to be


volunteering cuts for his own department. Onto the Times. We all


thought an interest-rate rise was some way off, but might not be.


Picking up on the remarks of Mark Carney. The idea is that they are


going to try and tighten access to new personal loans. The idea is this


could lead to further control and increased rates for all of us. There


is an argument that too much investing is also taking homes out


of the market. The Bank of England and quite a lot of economists are


worrying there might be another recession in the next few years.


That is what Mark Carney said today speaking to MPs on the Treasury. You


get negative equity and the rest of it. Going back to the Telegraph. An


interesting story, that GPs are being told that if they think one of


their elderly patients is not fit for driving, they should inform on


them, even though that would break patient confidentiality. This is an


alarming story. We should be worried about the idea that if you go to a


doctor with an element, some elderly people will not go to the doctor to


avoid losing their car, which they see as more important. -- ailment.


We have had a couple of incidents lately of elderly drivers causing


accidents or having accidents. There is a clear balance. They are saying


that the use of supposed to report it if they advertise patients to


stop driving and they carry on. -- doctors. These guidelines will make


it explicit that the protection of the public is more important than


maintaining patient confidentiality. That is quite a strong move for the


GMC to make. I would be worried about isolation from older people.


If you are living in a ruble area, the thought of losing your car, that


might be a massive change in lifestyle. -- rural. The Daily


Mirror. Betrayal of our babies, their headline. One of the worst


days to give birth in the hospital is the weekend. We know that there


is a problem with maternity departments at the weekend. It is


one of the few areas where understaffing and an incomplete


staffing affects patient help. -- health. Jeremy Hunt is under extreme


pressure on this idea of trying to spread the NHS to full


availability. That is why he is going through this battle with the


junior doctors. I think it is ever so slightly interesting, possibly


fishy, that these numbers are coming out. I was going to say. Bearing in


mind that this is the Daily Mirror, perhaps this will help Jeremy Hunt.


The Mirror has been a help for the government recently. Trying to make


doctors work longer. I must say, I had a baby at the weekend and it was


quite frightening. But that was not necessarily the fault of the


staffing levels. I am not sure what you can do about it. There might be


a case for beefing up staffing in particular areas, but not across the


whole piece. Today's announcement of more money is very interesting. Time


for one last story. One that is possibly the most eye-catching of


the day. The head of one of the biggest banks has turned around and


said, big pay packages and bonuses do not make bankers work harder. I


could have paid for that headline. People will be sane, thank God, a


banker talking sense. -- saying. He says, I have no idea why I was


offered a contract with bonuses promised. That is extraordinary. A


Yorkshireman from Harrogate telling it like it is. What is lost in


translation, he said it, he meant it. It kills all the arguments about


bonus culture. It will make him a bit unpopular among fellow bankers.


Do you think it will have any effect, however? Good point. There


are attempts to change the way bonuses are being paid. A lot of


investment bankers have had a bonus attached to a deal and then


afterwards the deal could fall apart and cause enormous problems and they


still got the bonus. They would want to change it to make sure the deal


goes well. The banks are fighting it. Trying to reform it is basically


like taking candy from a baby. Once the baby has been given the Candy,


it is difficult to take it away. Do you have that in the political


commentator's world. I get no bonuses, sadly. The anti- bonus


campaigners will be seizing on this language. It is a gift. Thank you


very much for both of you". -- your inputs. Coming up, it is Sportsday.
