defeating Wladimir Klitschko, and we will have a look at the 12 names of

:00:00.:00:00.

the shortlist for the sporting personality of the year award. That

:00:00.:00:00.

is all after the papers. Hello and welcome to

:00:00.:00:14.

our look ahead to what the papers With me are the Daily Mirror

:00:15.:00:17.

columnist Susie Boniface and the FT's Energy correspondent

:00:18.:00:21.

Kiran Stacey. "Corbyn's climbdown" is the headline

:00:22.:00:27.

in I. The paper says the Labour leader was

:00:28.:00:33.

forced to offer his MPs a free vote after being attacked

:00:34.:00:38.

by senior shadow cabinet members. The Mail says Britain could start

:00:39.:00:41.

bombing Islamic State in Syria within 48 hours and that

:00:42.:00:43.

Jeremy Corbyn has caved in to Air strikes in days as Corbyn

:00:44.:00:46.

retreats The Times says that dozens of

:00:47.:00:51.

Labour MPs will back military action The decision

:00:52.:00:58.

by junior doctors to suspend planned strike action tomorrow features

:00:59.:01:02.

on the Guardian's front page. The dollar hitting an eight-month

:01:03.:01:03.

peak against other major currencies The Mirror says doctors are

:01:04.:01:06.

recommending the Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe

:01:07.:01:10.

should be transferred back to prison The Sun has the same story

:01:11.:01:12.

and suggests Sutcliffe is on suicide watch

:01:13.:01:19.

after hearing he might be moved. We will begin with the story about

:01:20.:01:32.

Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour and -- MPs being given a free vote. It is

:01:33.:01:38.

on a lot the front pages. The Times says airstrikes after Jeremy Corbyn

:01:39.:01:46.

concedes defeat. Dozens of Labour MPs will back action tomorrow. That

:01:47.:01:55.

is very close to this vote. It will only be a day's debate. Jeremy

:01:56.:02:03.

Corbyn wanted two days of debate, something else he has lost on. And

:02:04.:02:10.

Doctor Jeremy Corbyn supporters say this is grossly unfair. -- a lot

:02:11.:02:15.

of. It almost makes it look like Jeremy Corbyn is the cause of this.

:02:16.:02:21.

Of course he is not. But to a certain extent, it just shows you

:02:22.:02:27.

how badly Jeremy Corbyn has handled things. What David Cameron did was

:02:28.:02:31.

decide on his position quite early. To make his arguments, to get his

:02:32.:02:36.

party in line. Jeremy Corbyn left it to the last minute, told everybody

:02:37.:02:41.

to follow their conscience while saying there is no way he will

:02:42.:02:46.

listen to his constituents. It is a mess on the Labour ventures. That is

:02:47.:02:55.

why it is being covered like this. That is not really fair, to suggest

:02:56.:03:00.

that Jeremy Corbyn had decided on his stance a while ago. He decided

:03:01.:03:07.

years ago. He did not decide how to strategise until recently. This is

:03:08.:03:13.

the nation's most famous pacifist being painted as a bloodthirsty

:03:14.:03:19.

warmonger. It is amazing is that much time around. But to some extent

:03:20.:03:27.

this is his fault. All that stood between us and airstrikes was him.

:03:28.:03:33.

You are relying on the opposition to the government doing a good job of

:03:34.:03:37.

opposing it and exposing the holes in the government's plan. Had he got

:03:38.:03:43.

up on his feet and forensically taken apart David Cameron's plan and

:03:44.:03:50.

strategy, we would not be talking about the holes in his argument.

:03:51.:03:58.

Instead, he said, a lot of points he had just answered. He did not adapt

:03:59.:04:03.

it according to circumstances. He was not forensic about the

:04:04.:04:07.

attention. He has now got this complete mess. You can blame the

:04:08.:04:13.

media if you like, but if Jeremy Corbyn was doing his job up relief,

:04:14.:04:18.

we would be talking about David Cameron's strategy. The Daily Mail,

:04:19.:04:26.

48 hours from war in Syria. Could that turn many mines around? That is

:04:27.:04:34.

the job of being a party leader. Ed Miliband managed it. But there is

:04:35.:04:40.

the question whether he was being led by his party or leading the

:04:41.:04:46.

party. Had Jeremy Corbyn said two weeks ago, I am a pacifist, but even

:04:47.:04:51.

in this case, these are the reasons I do not think the Prime Minister

:04:52.:04:56.

has made his case, he would have had a powerful argument. About a dozen

:04:57.:05:01.

Tory MPs agree with him. But he did not make his case. I would not blame

:05:02.:05:07.

Jeremy Corbyn for failing to block the Prime Minister. The fault lies

:05:08.:05:13.

primarily with the Prime Minister. Moving on. The Guardian again.

:05:14.:05:20.

Doctors call off the strike and agree to hold further talks. Actions

:05:21.:05:29.

have now been suspended. Jeremy Hunt saying that he wanted to talk a long

:05:30.:05:36.

time ago. Saying that he would not impose these new contracts. Another

:05:37.:05:42.

case of bad management. Jeremy Hunt suggested a new contract for this.

:05:43.:05:48.

Then said it would be imposed anyway. That caused a complete

:05:49.:05:58.

farce. And then just before the strike is going to happen, when

:05:59.:06:03.

doctors have put solutions in place to cover the lack of doctors, he

:06:04.:06:08.

suddenly caves and says, I will not impose this. He could have done that

:06:09.:06:18.

sooner. Would the BMA have come to the table sooner? The threat of

:06:19.:06:23.

imposition is what caused the strikes. Some of the terms and

:06:24.:06:27.

conditions were a contributing factor. It seems the government has

:06:28.:06:33.

agreed these higher rates of pay for extra working should apply from 7pm

:06:34.:06:38.

on a Saturday rather than ten p.m.. That showed of goodwill is helping.

:06:39.:06:44.

As a patient, I am not that concerned. As a patient, I am more

:06:45.:06:53.

concerned whether my patient will be exhausted. If doctors feel pressured

:06:54.:06:59.

to do work when they are not fit, that is still a problem. I still

:07:00.:07:05.

agree with the doctor, rather than Jeremy Hunt. I would be very

:07:06.:07:10.

surprised if you ever agreed with Jeremy Hunt. Looking at the sun.

:07:11.:07:17.

Prince Charles giving his view on what he thinks is the biggest danger

:07:18.:07:23.

facing humanity. A lot of people would agree with them. Few are than

:07:24.:07:31.

the last time we had one of these major international summits. --

:07:32.:07:36.

fewer. Over the last few years, climate change has fallen down the

:07:37.:07:43.

priorities. You have seen cuts to renewables. One of the reasons

:07:44.:07:51.

Prince Charles is starting to get involved politically is because he

:07:52.:07:53.

feels the conversation is getting away. Maybe he is the voice that can

:07:54.:08:02.

guide that opinion. He gets in trouble. And he is going to get in

:08:03.:08:09.

trouble. Barack Obama appearing in a car that gets eight miles to the

:08:10.:08:15.

gallon. If they shared a private jet, I am a banana. All the people

:08:16.:08:19.

that have gone there from 150 different nations, a couple of them

:08:20.:08:27.

could have shared transport. For done it through Skype. Yes. For

:08:28.:08:38.

other forms of WebCam. Compose yourselves. Suggestion that Peter

:08:39.:08:49.

Sutcliffe might be moved back to a prison from psychiatric hospital. He

:08:50.:08:57.

is on suicide watch. For him. He has been there for a long period of time

:08:58.:09:02.

with the litany of health problems. Doctors were worried he was trying

:09:03.:09:05.

to feed himself to death. He spent 31 years as a mental patient in

:09:06.:09:13.

Broadmoor. It does not say that we have got what it is that the doctors

:09:14.:09:19.

think he might be fit to go into the high security prison. That would be

:09:20.:09:27.

a huge change in lifestyle. But he might just end up in the hospital

:09:28.:09:33.

wing. This has happened regularly since he was arrested in 1981.

:09:34.:09:38.

Whether he was mad or bad. That is a huge controversy. He argued that he

:09:39.:09:47.

heard voices and he was schizophrenic and needed treatment.

:09:48.:09:51.

Everybody else wanted him to go to prison and have a really hard time.

:09:52.:09:57.

This has happened regularly and it usually ends up going back to him

:09:58.:10:05.

going back to Broadmoor. He has been in for three decades. A couple of

:10:06.:10:13.

stories in the Telegraph. Cameron given the option to delay Heathrow

:10:14.:10:18.

decision. It is coming from a reputable source. A committee of MPs

:10:19.:10:25.

who are saying we have a few more things to comply with. That is very

:10:26.:10:32.

convenient for David Cameron. It is a very difficult decision. If he

:10:33.:10:38.

were to decide on a third runway or a second one at Gatwick, several MPs

:10:39.:10:49.

could split the party. They are against expansion. They are against

:10:50.:10:55.

expansion at Heathrow. He will have problems with some of his own

:10:56.:11:01.

Cabinet. If he can keep them all together and move this issue down

:11:02.:11:08.

the agenda, he is happy. He has got Syria to worry about, his legacy to

:11:09.:11:14.

worry about. He has got to make this decision. The reason it has been

:11:15.:11:19.

kicked down the road, we should be across all of those issues. How long

:11:20.:11:25.

has this been running for? Ripper Mac made the decision to build a

:11:26.:11:32.

third runway. We have already had six years of this. The government

:11:33.:11:39.

itself commissioned a report into those which took nearly three

:11:40.:11:44.

years. It all but recommended a third runway. And still they claim

:11:45.:11:52.

not to have had all the information. It is just trying to push it off as

:11:53.:11:59.

far as they can. The other story, call to ban DNA editing over

:12:00.:12:04.

designer baby fears. What does that mean? It is a way of changing

:12:05.:12:10.

somebody's DNA so they are not likely to be set. There was a really

:12:11.:12:16.

interesting story about the little girl who had leukaemia. They had a

:12:17.:12:23.

technique of sending in nano bots that would take out the DNA that was

:12:24.:12:27.

stopping her reacting properly to the chemotherapy. And then she was

:12:28.:12:32.

declared clear and everything was great. Most people would not have a

:12:33.:12:38.

problem with that. They would think that was a reasonable use of

:12:39.:12:43.

technology. Our concerned if you change people's genes, there is no

:12:44.:12:53.

knowing what will happen in the future. Although it is quite well

:12:54.:12:58.

regulated, it is not the same elsewhere. How do you stop it

:12:59.:13:05.

everywhere in the world? You can't, there is no international body that

:13:06.:13:09.

could even say everybody should stop. They are trying to pressure

:13:10.:13:14.

Western governments to put pressure on allies around the world not to do

:13:15.:13:19.

this. And to highlight the scientific problems. What scientists

:13:20.:13:25.

are worried about is genetic changes passing on through the gene line.

:13:26.:13:32.

The problem is that could become embedded in our DNA. Who knows what

:13:33.:13:40.

that might involve? It might include a weakness to a disease we have not

:13:41.:13:45.

even thought of. There are a lot of things that might happen. All kinds

:13:46.:13:49.

of things could happen in the future. The final story. If men are

:13:50.:14:00.

from Mars, then so are women. We are supposed to be from Venus, I never

:14:01.:14:04.

thought that. For reasons I will not go into. What a choice. Why? It has

:14:05.:14:17.

been said for years that men are very good at reading maps and women

:14:18.:14:23.

are better at asking for directions. It is a true is that men are better

:14:24.:14:27.

at spatial awareness and women better at communication. But when

:14:28.:14:34.

looking at the studies, the scientists in question were only

:14:35.:14:38.

looking at one part of the brain at a time. They have looked at lots of

:14:39.:14:42.

bits of the brains simultaneously. Any one person could be male or

:14:43.:14:49.

female at different parts of their brain at the same time. We are all

:14:50.:14:53.

individuals. It makes no difference whatsoever. John Brake wrote a

:14:54.:15:00.

bestselling book about men being from Mars and women being from

:15:01.:15:05.

Venus. It was huge. There was a lot of criticism from scientists towards

:15:06.:15:11.

that look at the time. But there are more credible people who have

:15:12.:15:15.

written similar books. I cannot remember the name of the author. She

:15:16.:15:21.

was a female scientist looking at some of this and suggesting similar

:15:22.:15:27.

things. If you were thinking. -- gendered way of thinking. I have

:15:28.:15:32.

never seen that in my own experience. It seems that science is

:15:33.:15:38.

the same. It might be the way we are brought up. Thank you. Nice to see

:15:39.:15:49.

you. Coming up next, Sportsday.

:15:50.:15:51.
