quarter-finals. Chelsea plan to bring down Stamford Bridge in


exchange for a brand-new home. That is in Sportsday in 15 minutes after


the papers. Hello and welcome to


our look ahead to what the papers Welcome to you both and thank you


for coming in. The Independent devotes its front


page to the government's proposal to launch air strikes against IS


targets in Syria, declaring that it is based on "wishful thinking


and poor information." The Daily Telegraph picks up


on this evening's comments by the He called Labour leader


Jeremy Corbyn and his allies The Times reports results


of a poll which suggests less than half the country supports the UK


taking action in Syria. While the Sun has pictures


from a training exercise carried out today in London by armed police,


aimed at thwarting a Paris-style The Mail carries claims of


an internal Conservative Party row. It says an ally of


Home Secretary Theresa May is accusing the Chancellor of


encouraging mass immigration to help The Financial Times says the Bank of


England has "drawn a line under the era of bank-bashing," by signalling


it won't tighten restrictions The Mirror has the story


of Britain's youngest ever organ donor, Hope Lee, who died just 74


minutes after being born. And finally, the Express leads


with the news that cutting your So, let us begin, and of course it


is the vote on Syria tomorrow, around this time tomorrow night we


will know the result of the vote. The Telegraph, first of all, have


got this, allegedly, inflammatory language from the Prime Minister he


used to Tory backbenchers to describe Jeremy Corbyn and those who


will vote against. Yes, tonight at the 1922 Committee of backbenchers.


It reflects a shift in tone from David Cameron on the Syria debate


which started as being quite measured, and very respectful on


both sides. The Commons' statement last week had both David Cameron


telling Jeremy Corbyn he restated his long-held opposition. He


received praise from Labour MPs as well as his own team for the way he


handed the statement, putting the government's case. It didn't last


long. Maybe he is trying to rally his political troops into action.


The atmosphere is definitely fed -- febrile, verging on acrimonious. On


the one hand, we have his attack on those who walk through the lobbies


in opposition to the plan for airstrikes, accusing them of being


terrorist sympathisers. Extraordinary. I must confess, after


his very well measured comment in the last two or three days, to say


this is exceptional. Is he saying the Tories in his party who don't


want to go in our terrorist sympathisers? Is David Davis, the


Foreign Affairs Select Committee, the majority who don't want to bomb


them, terrorist sympathisers? Having said that, the behaviour of Labour


MPs leaves a lot to be desired. Some have gone to Labour MPs who are


against bombing in Syria and has said that, sorry, who are voting for


bombing in Syria, saying they will kill innocent children and people.


They show them a picture of a dead baby to remind them of what won't


happen, which is inappropriate. While David Cameron's sites are on


the opposition and those who won't back the strikes mission, Jeremy


Corbyn turned on his own party, issuing a thinly veiled threat to


those who would back David Cameron, saying there would be no hiding


place and it would lead to innocence being killed. That is filtering down


through the party. More than 100 MPs I believe have received an e-mail


from someone claiming to be a Labour member, part of the Momentum


Movement in the party, in which they are threatening deselection, and


saying this will be payback for the Labour members. This is the


behaviour that turns the public against politicians. There is


nothing more crucial than this and they are bringing party politics in


such a dramatic way. That is exactly what turns people off politics. The


Independent have a powerful piece by Patrick Cockburn. There is all sorts


of stuff in the papers. There is a deluge of opinion. Yes. This is a


striking front page with a picture of a fighter jet. They can be


heading to Syria tomorrow night to start airstrikes. Patrick Cockburn


is a very well respected and long-standing war correspondent.


They have quoted from his piece, Miller Street strategy is based on


misinformation -- military strategy. There is a lot of detail, not just


suggested by the Prime Minister, but this issue everyone seems to be


gathering a round, the 70,000 troops on the ground. It seems almost


inevitable that you need people on the ground -- around. You also have


to follow it through and make sure you clear out ISIS. This 70,000


forced, presented via the Prime Minister, sounds like a unified


army, from the Kurds to the Turkmen to


President Assad's own forces -- ranging. To try to get them all on


one side and into some sort of credible armed fighting force will


be hard. We have no idea how it will end, less than the idea we had about


Iraq, so Patrick Cockburn has a point. We have got the Times, with


the dramatic picture of protest is outside parliament - don't bomb


Syria. They've got a poll suggesting, although it has


fluctuated, less than half of voters support airstrikes. It does not


surprise me at all, quite frankly, with what has been said, and with


what we have not discovered in the past. Like a lot of people, I have


been wavering on this. Maybe we should go in, then I think maybe we


shouldn't. There are so many questions that haven't been


answered. You cannot bomb your way to democracy, as Jeremy Corbyn has


said. You cannot go in without a plan. Tomorrow is a crucial day. If


you were an NTU would be wavering? I would be waiting to see what David


Cameron has to say about the sources of financial aid for ISIS Mufti oil


supply they have -- if you were an MP, you would be wavering? I want


what we know to be public before making a final decision. Will it


influence MPs, will they vote according to what they have heard in


the debate? A lot of have made up their minds. Apparently, 30 Labour


MPs have not yet nailed their colours to the mast. People might be


swayed in the debate itself. These are very emotive occasion. Members


in the press gallery in the House of Commons, during the Iraq War debate,


head of the invasion, which had troops on the ground, it was very


different in that respect, but the feelings of passion with people like


Robin Cook resigning over it, and the tension, which was tangible. It


is strange in a way, because warplanes are attacking ISIS in Iraq


already. This is a question of moving across the border. Moving


across the border without troops on the ground. You've got troops on the


ground in Iraq to support you. In history I don't think there has been


a campaign of bombing that has ended in victory. We need more. US special


forces on the ground. A lot of people opposing action say that


because we don't know the endgame, this is a vote on airstrikes. It is


a motion that no ground troops will be committed. What happens 18 months


down the line, maybe the Vienna peace talks have not led to a


transition from Assad... Who can you negotiate with? How can you


negotiate peace? We need more people involved, for a start, and more


information about what's going on. If you have feet on the ground, they


have to be from countries in that region, but also a UN force, will


Russia and China sign up? We could debate Syria all night and the


Commons will be debating it all day tomorrow. The Daily Mail have a


story about George Osborne banking on migration to boost economy. It is


an odd story to run on a day like this. George Osborne, they say, has


been accused of encouraging mass migration to balance the books on


the grounds that the bigger the economy overall means spending cuts


affect increases when the deficit measures according to GDP. The


bigger economy. Is it about Theresa May against George Osborne and the


Tory leadership? Both. George Osborne can put a ?27 billion rabbit


out of the hat. The office of the responsibility predictions suggested


180,000 more people coming to the UK and generating more income and


therefore the economy would be boosted. However, the source of this


story is a former special adviser, who worked with Theresa May for five


years. They are close to the -- very close to the Home Secretary. It is


very true that immigration is always a top issue at when you ask the


public at elections and so on, it comes to the top of the list.


Theresa May is calculating what will happen when David Cameron goes. She


is looking at the lineup and thinking, there are two Tory left


candidates and someone has to keep either right crowd, occupy the


immigration argument. That is a debate for another day -- has to


keep to the right. Shelling a small amount of fat could cure type 2


diabetes -- shedding. That is according to the Daily Express and


Newcastle University. Losing a tiny amount of fat around the pancreas


can radically affect the condition of diabetes, type 2 diabetes. As far


as I know, fat has always been a factor in diabetes, people say it is


partly because of being overweight, but this is about fat just around


that particular organ. If you lose it, you can improve your condition.


Let's move on to the Financial Times, which as usual has a picture


of footballers on the front page. Don't ask me about this because


football is not my forte. I know your husband is a Manchester City


supporter. So am I. The front of the Financial Times. More money for


them. 13% Chinese state. The biggest win for Sheikh Mansour, who owns


13%. Not a bad day for him. Good news for the club. Sheikh Mansour


has been very good to the area around the ground, lots of


development going on, massive training ground, a new college and


swimming pool, helping 8000 new homes in the area, providing the


area which was badly run down. You sound like a press officer at


Manchester City! It is good news all round. And they won tonight, so it


doesn't get better. The Chinese President visited. Of course. Even


though he is allegedly a Manchester United fan. He had a photograph with


David Cameron. And the star striker, Sergio Aguero. No questions on human


rights. Does it enter into it? Certainly not in the investment with


nuclear power, Chinese investment, and transport and infrastructure, it


has been conveniently forgotten. I want to see whether the Man City


website talks about its books. I think they will be stocking lots of


Manchester City shirts. Light blue books. Thank you so much for being


with us. It was a pleasure to have you with us. Coming up next,


Sportsday. Hello and welcome to Sportsday,


with me Ore Oduba. Everton seal their spot in the


semi-finals of the Capital One Cup. Delefeou dazzles in


the win over Middlesbrough.
