The European Union and Turkey have agreed on a deal on I Gration. It is

Hello, and welcome to our look at the morning's papers.
With me are Kate Devlin, political correspondent
for the Glasgow Herald, and Joel Taylor, deputy editor of the Metro.
But first let's have a quick look at some of the front pages, which are
dominated by political problems for both the Conservatives and Labour.
The Telegraph says Jeremy Corbyn is on the verge
of demanding that Labour Mps oppose military action in Syria,
despite most of the shadow cabinet being supportive of airstrikes.
Back Jezza or quit, says The Sun, reporting on comments from
Diane Abbott to cabinet minister not backing Corbyn over the issue.
But the Mirror says Corbyn will allow allow a vote, a free vote,
meaning Labour MPs who are in favour of military action would
According to the Independent, union boss, Len McCLuskey,
has warned Labour MPs against trying to oust Mr Corbyn.
The Times has more on that McCluskey warning, it says he told Corbyn's
opponents they were writing their political obituaries.
It's the Conservatives who are on the cover of The Guardian,
the paper says Tory Party Chair Lord Feldman is facing calls to step
And, it's more of the same on the Mail, which makes reference
to Lord Feldman's close friendship with David Cameron.
And finally, The Express has something entirely different,
which pill which could help us live to 120 is being tested on humans
The Independent. The warning from the Unite leader. Len McCluskey
warns MPs about ousting Jeremy Corbyn. Opinions widened over
whether the shadow cabinet will get their demand of a free vote. We will
have to wait and see. Len McCluskey, someone on Twitter says it looks
like a throwback to the 80s with all this wrangling within the Labour
Party. Exactly. One thing that has marked Jeremy Corbyn's leadership
since election is that he has almost avoided some of these contentious
issues by taking one issue and he is party taking another. Trident has
been taken to a review, no one knows how long that will take. Is area has
come sooner than Labour anticipated. -- Syria. Suddenly, Jeremy Corbyn is
taking a decision against the parliamentary Labour Party is
relying on. Len McCluskey is trying to force his MPs to toe the line.
Suggesting here that if there was a threat against Jeremy Corbyn for the
leadership the union vote would be galvanised and mobilised. It is
interesting to remember the position that Len McCluskey and in fact all
the unions are under now under the Jeremy Corbyn Labour leadership,
they are potentially seeing their influence and impact on the wane. It
is interesting to think about things like on line polls that's Jeremy
Corbyn suggested last week that he might use to figure out where the
membership stands. That puts unions in a difficult position with
influence. Len McCluskey, also, was embarrassed this week when he said
Jeremy Corbyn should not see the first thing that comes to his head.
It could be seen, in part, a slight bit of flexing of muscles from the
unions. In terms of ousting Jeremy Corbyn, many Labour MPs who do want
to get rid of their current leader believes it is far too early to do
that. There is also a theory that whenever they do try to change their
leader Jeremy Corbyn would have to fail on economics and not on foreign
policy. The eerie runs that if he fails on something like foreign
policy, effectively what will happen is that a Jeremy Corbyn will take
over. -- theory. -- Corbyn Mark II. Let's look at the headlines. Jeremy
Corbyn set to give his MPs a free vote on Syria. The Thai minister
preparing to launch RAF raids on ISIS in days. It has to have a vote
first... You haven't got the numbers yet. This is a contrast to the mood
music from Jeremy Corbyn today giving the impression that it is his
way or the highway. Now that there is a since... The Mirror should have
some sources, but there is a hint that he might give a free vote. --
there is a hint. Even if there is a free vote we know about the
divisions in the party. Possibly David Cameron does not. This is part
of the problems. He has been here before in 2013. He thought he had
Syria. He lost that vote. He understands he needs a clear
majority before they can take it again. How much he thinks he can
rely on Labour MP assurance will help him on whether to go for it.
But it would be easier if this was a free vote for the Prime Minister.
The Sun says back Jezza or quit. From Diane Abbott to the rest of the
shadow cabinet. This is Diane Abbott picking up on suggestions is a width
was imposed on this vote. -- whip. She is suggesting that any Shadow
Minister who fails to support him should put up and shut up or wit. I
think this is quite an interesting intervention. -- quit. I like this,
Labour goes to war with itself, a headline we will see in the future
as well. It is amazing how much this is about not the rights and wrong is
of airstrikes, but Labour. -- wrongs. Our impact in this situation
looks like it will be modest if we get involved. Diane Abbott is one of
his allies in the shadow cabinet and often appears on radio supporting
him. It is not a surprise she is doing so. I wonder how it will be
received by her colleagues. Paris police fired teargas on climate
protesters. Nowhere near as many as you would normally see on the
streets of Paris, inevitably, after the Paris attacks, they will be
careful about large-scale demonstrations. Not very many, but
pretty ugly scenes. 140 -150 leaders from around the world are being
welcomed by Francois Hollande. But powerful scenes of these 20,000
shoes meant to symbolise the march that isn't there. We am or seen the
clashes between protesters and police. -- are more. It is unlike
the one from Copenhagen a few years ago. It is this more. We have been
here before. There is optimism ahead of Copenhagen and is now ahead of
these kind of summits before where they do indeed get deals. But
everything seems to be quite watered-down or not held to in the
end. It is interesting to see what will happen in the next few days.
What happened here is that there were only a couple of dozen
commitments to reducing greenhouse gas emissions before Copenhagen.
This time there are more than 150. It is also significant that it is
getting to the point where President Obama's is having his final grand
appearance on a political stage as president. -- Obama. It will be
interesting to try to get an agreement. Back page for a change.
Must have been sport. Primarily, is one of the Independent? Sorry... I'm
getting ahead of myself and getting excited about talking about
Leicester City in a minute. It isn't normal, I realised. Year it is be a
joyful picture of Andy Murray after he beat David Goffin of Belgium in
Ghenst today. -- it is a joyful. It is the first time since 1936 that
Britain has won the Davis Cup. It is interesting what you said about the
arena. Last year in London there was a high-profile huge money tennis
tournament and Andy Murray has concentrated and focused instead on
winning the Davis Cup. He has been focusing on that old here. For the
first time 1936 Great Britain has won it. -- all year. Lovely scenes.
We can see from the photograph what it means to Andy Murray. A huge
amount. Now I can get onto the back page of The Mirror. Pride of
Britain. And unforgettable weekend to be a British sports fan. An array
of sportsmen, it has to be said, nice to have a woman on the back
page, but there is Tyson Fury who beat Wladimir Klitschko. Jason Vardy
who won the Premier League record by scoring 11 goals in 11 games. I
pressed by this. -- I am impressed by your knowledge. It has been a
great weekend for sport and sportsmanship and Britain. Andy
Murray was grabbed by his tee at the end of this historic victory and
said, hold on just a minute and he went over and shook the hand of his
opponent first and then came back to his tee to let the seller
recriminations began. -- teammates. Am I the only one who feels mildly
embarrassed with Tyson Fury singing in the ring? Umm... Probably not. I
especially like seeing Jamie Vardy among this lot because we always
hear about Arsenal and Manchester United, but Leicester City doesn't
get a mention too often. Not often enough. It is nice to see them
do... Blue Army. I am from Manchester. Before nine o'clock...
Aspiration by MPs. A report coming out tomorrow, many recommendations,
one of them is the band junk food advertisements before nine o'clock.
-- ban. And also, this much talked up 20% tax on sugar. Whether
anything will be done with this report really needs to be seen. A
very difficult one to implement. We do keep hearing about this. Has got
any traction? A month parents I think it would have some support. --
Amongst. I constantly trying to steer my children away from the
sweet aisle in the shops. -- I am. The final story, a bill to make you
last the 120. -- pill. There is something more appealing than the
long longevity argument. -- last till. They say they can one be wiped
out a plan A is. -- They say they can one day wipe out Alzheimers. For
so many reasons it is a good thing. That is the big issue. To make 120
year olds as healthy as 50 roles, that is important. -- year olds. As
long as your pension would stretch that far. We are not keen... Thank
you, kate and Joel, an interesting week ahead politically. -- Kate.
