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

:00:00.:00:00.

aimed at reducing migration into Europe. -- migration.

:00:00.:00:12.

Hello, and welcome to our look at the morning's papers.

:00:13.:00:14.

With me are Kate Devlin, political correspondent

:00:15.:00:16.

for the Glasgow Herald, and Joel Taylor, deputy editor of the Metro.

:00:17.:00:19.

But first let's have a quick look at some of the front pages, which are

:00:20.:00:35.

dominated by political problems for both the Conservatives and Labour.

:00:36.:00:38.

The Telegraph says Jeremy Corbyn is on the verge

:00:39.:00:40.

of demanding that Labour Mps oppose military action in Syria,

:00:41.:00:43.

despite most of the shadow cabinet being supportive of airstrikes.

:00:44.:00:48.

Back Jezza or quit, says The Sun, reporting on comments from

:00:49.:00:51.

Diane Abbott to cabinet minister not backing Corbyn over the issue.

:00:52.:00:54.

But the Mirror says Corbyn will allow allow a vote, a free vote,

:00:55.:00:57.

meaning Labour MPs who are in favour of military action would

:00:58.:01:00.

According to the Independent, union boss, Len McCLuskey,

:01:01.:01:03.

has warned Labour MPs against trying to oust Mr Corbyn.

:01:04.:01:06.

The Times has more on that McCluskey warning, it says he told Corbyn's

:01:07.:01:09.

opponents they were writing their political obituaries.

:01:10.:01:11.

It's the Conservatives who are on the cover of The Guardian,

:01:12.:01:15.

the paper says Tory Party Chair Lord Feldman is facing calls to step

:01:16.:01:19.

And, it's more of the same on the Mail, which makes reference

:01:20.:01:22.

to Lord Feldman's close friendship with David Cameron.

:01:23.:01:25.

And finally, The Express has something entirely different,

:01:26.:01:32.

which pill which could help us live to 120 is being tested on humans

:01:33.:01:35.

The Independent. The warning from the Unite leader. Len McCluskey

:01:36.:01:47.

warns MPs about ousting Jeremy Corbyn. Opinions widened over

:01:48.:01:54.

whether the shadow cabinet will get their demand of a free vote. We will

:01:55.:02:00.

have to wait and see. Len McCluskey, someone on Twitter says it looks

:02:01.:02:03.

like a throwback to the 80s with all this wrangling within the Labour

:02:04.:02:11.

Party. Exactly. One thing that has marked Jeremy Corbyn's leadership

:02:12.:02:13.

since election is that he has almost avoided some of these contentious

:02:14.:02:21.

issues by taking one issue and he is party taking another. Trident has

:02:22.:02:27.

been taken to a review, no one knows how long that will take. Is area has

:02:28.:02:34.

come sooner than Labour anticipated. -- Syria. Suddenly, Jeremy Corbyn is

:02:35.:02:42.

taking a decision against the parliamentary Labour Party is

:02:43.:02:46.

relying on. Len McCluskey is trying to force his MPs to toe the line.

:02:47.:02:53.

Suggesting here that if there was a threat against Jeremy Corbyn for the

:02:54.:03:00.

leadership the union vote would be galvanised and mobilised. It is

:03:01.:03:06.

interesting to remember the position that Len McCluskey and in fact all

:03:07.:03:10.

the unions are under now under the Jeremy Corbyn Labour leadership,

:03:11.:03:13.

they are potentially seeing their influence and impact on the wane. It

:03:14.:03:19.

is interesting to think about things like on line polls that's Jeremy

:03:20.:03:26.

Corbyn suggested last week that he might use to figure out where the

:03:27.:03:29.

membership stands. That puts unions in a difficult position with

:03:30.:03:35.

influence. Len McCluskey, also, was embarrassed this week when he said

:03:36.:03:40.

Jeremy Corbyn should not see the first thing that comes to his head.

:03:41.:03:47.

It could be seen, in part, a slight bit of flexing of muscles from the

:03:48.:03:53.

unions. In terms of ousting Jeremy Corbyn, many Labour MPs who do want

:03:54.:03:57.

to get rid of their current leader believes it is far too early to do

:03:58.:04:07.

that. There is also a theory that whenever they do try to change their

:04:08.:04:12.

leader Jeremy Corbyn would have to fail on economics and not on foreign

:04:13.:04:16.

policy. The eerie runs that if he fails on something like foreign

:04:17.:04:21.

policy, effectively what will happen is that a Jeremy Corbyn will take

:04:22.:04:34.

over. -- theory. -- Corbyn Mark II. Let's look at the headlines. Jeremy

:04:35.:04:40.

Corbyn set to give his MPs a free vote on Syria. The Thai minister

:04:41.:04:47.

preparing to launch RAF raids on ISIS in days. It has to have a vote

:04:48.:04:50.

first... You haven't got the numbers yet. This is a contrast to the mood

:04:51.:04:57.

music from Jeremy Corbyn today giving the impression that it is his

:04:58.:05:03.

way or the highway. Now that there is a since... The Mirror should have

:05:04.:05:08.

some sources, but there is a hint that he might give a free vote. --

:05:09.:05:16.

there is a hint. Even if there is a free vote we know about the

:05:17.:05:19.

divisions in the party. Possibly David Cameron does not. This is part

:05:20.:05:25.

of the problems. He has been here before in 2013. He thought he had

:05:26.:05:37.

Syria. He lost that vote. He understands he needs a clear

:05:38.:05:39.

majority before they can take it again. How much he thinks he can

:05:40.:05:47.

rely on Labour MP assurance will help him on whether to go for it.

:05:48.:05:51.

But it would be easier if this was a free vote for the Prime Minister.

:05:52.:05:56.

The Sun says back Jezza or quit. From Diane Abbott to the rest of the

:05:57.:06:03.

shadow cabinet. This is Diane Abbott picking up on suggestions is a width

:06:04.:06:16.

was imposed on this vote. -- whip. She is suggesting that any Shadow

:06:17.:06:18.

Minister who fails to support him should put up and shut up or wit. I

:06:19.:06:24.

think this is quite an interesting intervention. -- quit. I like this,

:06:25.:06:34.

Labour goes to war with itself, a headline we will see in the future

:06:35.:06:38.

as well. It is amazing how much this is about not the rights and wrong is

:06:39.:06:46.

of airstrikes, but Labour. -- wrongs. Our impact in this situation

:06:47.:06:51.

looks like it will be modest if we get involved. Diane Abbott is one of

:06:52.:06:59.

his allies in the shadow cabinet and often appears on radio supporting

:07:00.:07:06.

him. It is not a surprise she is doing so. I wonder how it will be

:07:07.:07:12.

received by her colleagues. Paris police fired teargas on climate

:07:13.:07:17.

protesters. Nowhere near as many as you would normally see on the

:07:18.:07:22.

streets of Paris, inevitably, after the Paris attacks, they will be

:07:23.:07:24.

careful about large-scale demonstrations. Not very many, but

:07:25.:07:34.

pretty ugly scenes. 140 -150 leaders from around the world are being

:07:35.:07:39.

welcomed by Francois Hollande. But powerful scenes of these 20,000

:07:40.:07:43.

shoes meant to symbolise the march that isn't there. We am or seen the

:07:44.:07:48.

clashes between protesters and police. -- are more. It is unlike

:07:49.:07:57.

the one from Copenhagen a few years ago. It is this more. We have been

:07:58.:08:04.

here before. There is optimism ahead of Copenhagen and is now ahead of

:08:05.:08:08.

these kind of summits before where they do indeed get deals. But

:08:09.:08:14.

everything seems to be quite watered-down or not held to in the

:08:15.:08:18.

end. It is interesting to see what will happen in the next few days.

:08:19.:08:22.

What happened here is that there were only a couple of dozen

:08:23.:08:25.

commitments to reducing greenhouse gas emissions before Copenhagen.

:08:26.:08:31.

This time there are more than 150. It is also significant that it is

:08:32.:08:35.

getting to the point where President Obama's is having his final grand

:08:36.:08:40.

appearance on a political stage as president. -- Obama. It will be

:08:41.:08:46.

interesting to try to get an agreement. Back page for a change.

:08:47.:08:53.

Must have been sport. Primarily, is one of the Independent? Sorry... I'm

:08:54.:08:59.

getting ahead of myself and getting excited about talking about

:09:00.:09:04.

Leicester City in a minute. It isn't normal, I realised. Year it is be a

:09:05.:09:09.

joyful picture of Andy Murray after he beat David Goffin of Belgium in

:09:10.:09:20.

Ghenst today. -- it is a joyful. It is the first time since 1936 that

:09:21.:09:27.

Britain has won the Davis Cup. It is interesting what you said about the

:09:28.:09:31.

arena. Last year in London there was a high-profile huge money tennis

:09:32.:09:35.

tournament and Andy Murray has concentrated and focused instead on

:09:36.:09:41.

winning the Davis Cup. He has been focusing on that old here. For the

:09:42.:09:48.

first time 1936 Great Britain has won it. -- all year. Lovely scenes.

:09:49.:09:53.

We can see from the photograph what it means to Andy Murray. A huge

:09:54.:09:59.

amount. Now I can get onto the back page of The Mirror. Pride of

:10:00.:10:03.

Britain. And unforgettable weekend to be a British sports fan. An array

:10:04.:10:08.

of sportsmen, it has to be said, nice to have a woman on the back

:10:09.:10:13.

page, but there is Tyson Fury who beat Wladimir Klitschko. Jason Vardy

:10:14.:10:21.

who won the Premier League record by scoring 11 goals in 11 games. I

:10:22.:10:32.

pressed by this. -- I am impressed by your knowledge. It has been a

:10:33.:10:38.

great weekend for sport and sportsmanship and Britain. Andy

:10:39.:10:41.

Murray was grabbed by his tee at the end of this historic victory and

:10:42.:10:48.

said, hold on just a minute and he went over and shook the hand of his

:10:49.:10:51.

opponent first and then came back to his tee to let the seller

:10:52.:10:57.

recriminations began. -- teammates. Am I the only one who feels mildly

:10:58.:11:00.

embarrassed with Tyson Fury singing in the ring? Umm... Probably not. I

:11:01.:11:11.

especially like seeing Jamie Vardy among this lot because we always

:11:12.:11:17.

hear about Arsenal and Manchester United, but Leicester City doesn't

:11:18.:11:21.

get a mention too often. Not often enough. It is nice to see them

:11:22.:11:33.

do... Blue Army. I am from Manchester. Before nine o'clock...

:11:34.:11:42.

Aspiration by MPs. A report coming out tomorrow, many recommendations,

:11:43.:11:46.

one of them is the band junk food advertisements before nine o'clock.

:11:47.:11:54.

-- ban. And also, this much talked up 20% tax on sugar. Whether

:11:55.:12:00.

anything will be done with this report really needs to be seen. A

:12:01.:12:04.

very difficult one to implement. We do keep hearing about this. Has got

:12:05.:12:10.

any traction? A month parents I think it would have some support. --

:12:11.:12:18.

Amongst. I constantly trying to steer my children away from the

:12:19.:12:30.

sweet aisle in the shops. -- I am. The final story, a bill to make you

:12:31.:12:41.

last the 120. -- pill. There is something more appealing than the

:12:42.:12:46.

long longevity argument. -- last till. They say they can one be wiped

:12:47.:13:02.

out a plan A is. -- They say they can one day wipe out Alzheimers. For

:13:03.:13:10.

so many reasons it is a good thing. That is the big issue. To make 120

:13:11.:13:22.

year olds as healthy as 50 roles, that is important. -- year olds. As

:13:23.:13:29.

long as your pension would stretch that far. We are not keen... Thank

:13:30.:13:45.

you, kate and Joel, an interesting week ahead politically. -- Kate.

:13:46.:13:52.
