the final and from David Haye on his comeback to boxing after three years

:00:00.:00:00.

out. That is coming up, but fast the papers.

:00:00.:00:14.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:15.:00:16.

With me are political commentator Miranda Green and Chris Hope,

:00:17.:00:20.

the Daily Telegraph's Chief political correspondent.

:00:21.:00:27.

The Financial Times leads with tomorrow's Autumn Statement,

:00:28.:00:31.

saying the Chancellor will announce the biggest house building

:00:32.:00:33.

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

:00:34.:00:41.

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

:00:42.:00:46.

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

:00:47.:00:58.

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

:00:59.:01:00.

the Daily Telegraph has new guidance advising doctors to put

:01:01.:01:04.

the protection of the public ahead of confidentiality and report

:01:05.:01:06.

The greater risks of having a baby at the weekend are

:01:07.:01:11.

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

:01:12.:01:15.

And the Daily Express focuses on pensions and what could happen

:01:16.:01:21.

to pensioners who rashly cash in their retirement savings.

:01:22.:01:33.

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

:01:34.:01:40.

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

:01:41.:01:44.

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

:01:45.:01:52.

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

:01:53.:02:03.

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

:02:04.:02:06.

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

:02:07.:02:16.

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

:02:17.:02:23.

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

:02:24.:02:30.

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

:02:31.:02:36.

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

:02:37.:02:43.

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

:02:44.:02:47.

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

:02:48.:02:54.

between Russia and Nato. Turkey is guaranteed protection under the

:02:55.:03:03.

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

:03:04.:03:07.

have had moments of progress with some sort of international joint

:03:08.:03:13.

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

:03:14.:03:18.

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

:03:19.:03:23.

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

:03:24.:03:28.

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

:03:29.:03:37.

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

:03:38.:03:43.

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

:03:44.:03:51.

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

:03:52.:03:56.

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

:03:57.:04:03.

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

:04:04.:04:09.

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

:04:10.:04:18.

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

:04:19.:04:24.

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

:04:25.:04:33.

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

:04:34.:04:39.

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

:04:40.:04:44.

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

:04:45.:04:56.

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

:04:57.:05:01.

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

:05:02.:05:07.

blindspots. He will have two correct some mistakes. Convincing

:05:08.:05:14.

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

:05:15.:05:20.

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

:05:21.:05:28.

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

:05:29.:05:34.

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

:05:35.:05:37.

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

:05:38.:05:45.

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

:05:46.:05:50.

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

:05:51.:05:59.

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

:06:00.:06:07.

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

:06:08.:06:15.

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

:06:16.:06:26.

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

:06:27.:06:33.

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

:06:34.:06:38.

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

:06:39.:06:48.

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

:06:49.:06:57.

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

:06:58.:07:03.

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

:07:04.:07:08.

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

:07:09.:07:13.

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

:07:14.:07:22.

whether it is such a virtue. Starting to damage the

:07:23.:07:30.

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

:07:31.:07:34.

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

:07:35.:07:39.

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

:07:40.:07:46.

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

:07:47.:07:52.

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

:07:53.:07:59.

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

:08:00.:08:07.

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

:08:08.:08:14.

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

:08:15.:08:24.

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

:08:25.:08:34.

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

:08:35.:08:44.

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

:08:45.:08:51.

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

:08:52.:08:54.

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

:08:55.:09:04.

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

:09:05.:09:09.

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

:09:10.:09:18.

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

:09:19.:09:22.

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

:09:23.:09:30.

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

:09:31.:09:37.

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

:09:38.:09:42.

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

:09:43.:09:47.

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

:09:48.:09:56.

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

:09:57.:10:02.

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

:10:03.:10:09.

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

:10:10.:10:14.

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

:10:15.:10:19.

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

:10:20.:10:24.

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

:10:25.:10:30.

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

:10:31.:10:35.

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

:10:36.:10:41.

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

:10:42.:10:51.

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

:10:52.:10:56.

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

:10:57.:11:04.

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

:11:05.:11:09.

one of the few areas where understaffing and an incomplete

:11:10.:11:17.

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

:11:18.:11:23.

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

:11:24.:11:29.

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

:11:30.:11:38.

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

:11:39.:11:42.

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

:11:43.:11:51.

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

:11:52.:11:57.

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

:11:58.:12:08.

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

:12:09.:12:13.

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

:12:14.:12:16.

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

:12:17.:12:22.

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

:12:23.:12:30.

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

:12:31.:12:38.

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

:12:39.:12:44.

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

:12:45.:12:50.

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

:12:51.:12:57.

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

:12:58.:13:05.

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

:13:06.:13:10.

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

:13:11.:13:18.

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

:13:19.:13:24.

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

:13:25.:13:30.

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

:13:31.:13:37.

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

:13:38.:13:44.

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

:13:45.:13:50.

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

:13:51.:13:56.

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

:13:57.:14:01.

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

:14:02.:14:09.

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

:14:10.:14:20.

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

:14:21.:14:27.

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

:14:28.:14:33.

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

:14:34.:14:41.

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

:14:42.:14:53.

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