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.

saying the Chancellor will announce the biggest house building

the Daily Telegraph has new guidance advising doctors to put

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.
