minutes. Hello and welcome to

:00:00.:00:14.

our look ahead to what the papers With me are

:00:15.:00:16.

Rowena Mason, Political Correspondent at the

:00:28.:00:29.

:00:43.:00:47.

but is Britain?" The question posed by the

:00:48.:00:56.

Daily Mirror. The Independent features

:00:57.:00:57.

the kneeling figure of a man condemned to death in Saudi

be on the way within five years. Net migration could lead to an out

:01:12.:01:24.

vote in the upcoming European union referendum.

:01:25.:01:29.

The House of Commons divided as the prime Minster make the case to bomb

:01:30.:01:36.

IS in Syria. What did you make of the KC made? A lot of the paper not

:01:37.:01:41.

looking at that, looking at what is going on in Labour? Interesting, ACU

:01:42.:01:47.

new facts David Cameron presented to the Commons. -- ACU. He took 100

:01:48.:01:57.

questions from MPs. One of the things people are most sceptical

:01:58.:02:02.

about is the idea there are 70,000 troops on the ground in Syria, that

:02:03.:02:08.

could move into the vacuum, that the UK and other coalition countries

:02:09.:02:13.

could get rid of Isis. Is there much evidence of that figure? How many

:02:14.:02:20.

troops could be available? In a tortuous briefing later on to

:02:21.:02:23.

journalists, we went around the houses. It has come from the joint

:02:24.:02:27.

intelligence committee. Downing Street is says it is not a figure

:02:28.:02:32.

the Prime Minister has picked out of the air. Not a dodgy dossier. It has

:02:33.:02:38.

come from the intelligence chiefs. They have put a slight caveat on it,

:02:39.:02:42.

saying around 75,000 ground troops in Syria, unfortunately nowhere near

:02:43.:02:49.

where Isis is controlling. In the south-west of the country. There is

:02:50.:02:55.

the issue of moving them around. The thing Downing Street was saying, as

:02:56.:03:00.

soon as we can get political transition, Assad going, we can use

:03:01.:03:05.

the full might of the Syrian army to help take on Isis, a lot more than

:03:06.:03:10.

75,000, that is what we call the Free Syrian Army. Looking at the

:03:11.:03:20.

independent, labour at war over air strikes. Talk of the biggest crisis

:03:21.:03:26.

of Jeremy Corbyn's leadership, he has only been leader for five

:03:27.:03:29.

minutes. Certainly the biggest crisis since last week. On the day

:03:30.:03:34.

that the prime Minister comes to the House of Commons to make the case

:03:35.:03:38.

for Britain to go to war with another country, Labour have made

:03:39.:03:43.

it that he is writing to MPs about it that he is writing to MPs about

:03:44.:03:51.

something he really thinks? Why other set -- why is the Shadow

:03:52.:03:56.

Cabinet so upset? We know he thinks that, but they were to come to a

:03:57.:04:00.

whether the party votes for war. He whether the party votes for war. He

:04:01.:04:05.

is being clear about what he thinks. He would like to take the

:04:06.:04:09.

whole party, but it does not look like the Shadow Cabinet agrees.

:04:10.:04:13.

There is talk of that senior figures from the Labour Party resigning from

:04:14.:04:19.

the Shadow Cabinet. Up to half of them, I expect. The key issue is not

:04:20.:04:23.

whether they knew Jeremy Corbyn is not a fan of foreign intervention.

:04:24.:04:30.

He has been a member of Stop the Walk says he has been short

:04:31.:04:35.

trousers. Jamie Collins Edison to the David Cameron evidence, reflect,

:04:36.:04:41.

we will make a decision on Monday. He ambushes them on Thursday

:04:42.:04:45.

afternoon, saying I have listened, I will not speak to my CLP, neither

:04:46.:04:50.

will you, I don't want to do it any more. Complete breakdown of trust,

:04:51.:04:54.

which is at the heart of it. Interesting meeting on Monday.

:04:55.:05:00.

Staying with the independent, extraordinary image, mass executions

:05:01.:05:05.

in Saudi Arabia. Will Britain protest? Picture a man waiting to be

:05:06.:05:10.

executed in Saudi Arabia. Images like this are unbelievable. The

:05:11.:05:16.

question is, what will Britain do about it, given the trade

:05:17.:05:24.

Britain's relationship with Saudi Arabia has been in the spotlight the

:05:25.:05:29.

bit more than usual recently. One of the arguments Jeremy Corbyn is

:05:30.:05:33.

making, we need to look very closely at whether Saudi individuals are

:05:34.:05:38.

helping to fund jihadists. The Liberal Democrats have been saying

:05:39.:05:43.

that. A case of a British person in Saudi, who got a reprieve, but was

:05:44.:05:51.

potentially going to be flogged. Several cases of bloggers, that

:05:52.:05:58.

Britain has protested about. David Cameron

:05:59.:06:05.

Saudis. In cases like this, you have to wonder

:06:06.:06:05.

effect. Should we be doing as much business with estate that has a

:06:06.:06:14.

human rights record like this? Largest business, a key military

:06:15.:06:19.

ally, and will continue to be so, in our fight against Islamic State.

:06:20.:06:25.

Sometimes unfortunately the world is not an ideal place as

:06:26.:06:30.

would like, as Jeremy Corbin would like. You have two pick your allies,

:06:31.:06:35.

and work out if it is better to fight a worse evil. Let's look at

:06:36.:06:42.

the FT. A migrant behind a fence in northern Greece. Stemming the flow

:06:43.:06:47.

of the migrants to the EU, or risk the fate of the Northern Gerry Roman

:06:48.:06:52.

Empire. This is the Dutch prime minister making this morning. -- the

:06:53.:07:02.

fate of the Roman Empire. He is a big friend of Nick Clegg, you would

:07:03.:07:05.

think he was a centrist. This reflects serious concerns in Europe,

:07:06.:07:09.

about the sheer number of people coming to Europe from the crisis in

:07:10.:07:19.

Syria. This is linked to one and the same thing. At the heart of the

:07:20.:07:26.

European project, easy come, easy go where freedom of movement. That has

:07:27.:07:33.

led to fairly weak external borders, people paying the price, as we see

:07:34.:07:37.

now. If the Schengen fails, why would the single currency, Cropper?

:07:38.:07:45.

Not explained in the article. -- come a cropper. He is making a point

:07:46.:07:52.

about the European single currency, the central tenant of the European

:07:53.:07:58.

Union. In a wider way, the whole project could be at risk if freedom

:07:59.:08:03.

of movement is undermined. The language seems pretty extreme, I'm

:08:04.:08:08.

not sure it will herald a new dark ages like after the Roman Empire. He

:08:09.:08:13.

has chosen that language to make a point about how strongly he feels.

:08:14.:08:24.

What with the parasitical city the? Europe like the Roman Empire, it

:08:25.:08:27.

would strike terror into the hearts of Tory Eurosceptics. People in

:08:28.:08:33.

Europe think it is as great as the Roman Empire. It is a collection of

:08:34.:08:37.

28 sovereign states, they would be perfectly OK on their own, with Bill

:08:38.:08:45.

Cash and his friends say. Osborne's at hit poor families hard. You have

:08:46.:08:51.

written this. It is quite complicated. At the heart of it, two

:08:52.:08:59.

respected economic think tank, the Resolution Foundation and the

:09:00.:09:03.

Institute for Fiscal Studies, they are saying effectively, although the

:09:04.:09:09.

cuts to tax credits have been reversed, when tax credits are faded

:09:10.:09:13.

out, and the universal credit comes in, actually in work benefits

:09:14.:09:19.

entitlements, for new claimants, they will be lower than the current

:09:20.:09:24.

system. In that sense, effectively, new claimants will lose a large

:09:25.:09:31.

amount of money, around ?1000 a year by 2020. Not quite as good a story

:09:32.:09:37.

as it seemed to some people when you have the Autumn Statement? That

:09:38.:09:41.

depends. What this is saying, 16 edge of pounds -- 16 edge of pounds

:09:42.:09:52.

-- ?1600 worse off than the current system. George Osborne has said the

:09:53.:09:57.

current system is unsustainable, and it comes as no surprise that some

:09:58.:10:02.

people will lose out. Buy to let Russia as people try to beat the

:10:03.:10:05.

stamp duty increase. This is if you are buying a second property, you

:10:06.:10:09.

will have to pay more to the Exchequer over it. Whether it does

:10:10.:10:14.

force people to rush to beat the April deadline, we don't know?

:10:15.:10:19.

Highly likely, if you are a vandal sitting on a massive lot of cash,

:10:20.:10:23.

you want to expand your Empire, you have got rich by not giving your

:10:24.:10:27.

money away, why not snap up what is available? My heart bleeds for them,

:10:28.:10:33.

paying an extra 3% to take up extra housing stock. A good move by the

:10:34.:10:41.

Chancellor. It has annoyed a few well-heeled people. The economic

:10:42.:10:44.

forecast said it could depress property prices. Amen to that. For

:10:45.:10:53.

most people trying to get a house. It could affect the housing market,

:10:54.:10:56.

when the gunmen get involved? Possibly. It is quite a short window

:10:57.:11:03.

of time, in which people will potentially, rush to buy to let

:11:04.:11:09.

houses. Any effect will probably be short lived. Stampede over in four

:11:10.:11:15.

months. Stand clear. We will be back at 11:30pm, hopefully having a bit

:11:16.:11:20.

longer to talk about the front pages. Coming up next, it is time

:11:21.:11:35.

for debris. --
