Personality of the Year. That is in 15 minutes.

:00:00.:00:13.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be

:00:14.:00:17.

With me are Benedicte Paviot, a journalist from France

:00:18.:00:20.

24 and deputy editor of The Guardian Paul Johnson.

:00:21.:00:30.

We will start with the Independent. It leads with more calls to distance

:00:31.:00:39.

itself from stop the War coalition. The Express has said scientists have

:00:40.:00:47.

found a way of discovering cancer. The Metro starts with a petition to

:00:48.:00:53.

ban Donald Trump from Britain. The Micra crisis could push Britain out

:00:54.:00:58.

of Europe, was David Cameron. The Guardian reports on the word culture

:00:59.:01:03.

at the company, sports direct. The FT says in America the prevailing

:01:04.:01:06.

view that the middle class is being crushed is helping to feed some of

:01:07.:01:10.

the popular anger that has boosted the candidacy of Donald Trump. The

:01:11.:01:16.

time says the influx of refugees in Germany has passed the 1 million

:01:17.:01:21.

mark, keeping pressure on European leaders. The male browse our public

:01:22.:01:26.

sector bureaucrats who it accuses of covering up greed, incompetence and

:01:27.:01:31.

corruption. Where going to start with the Financial Times. We have

:01:32.:01:39.

been hearing a lot over the last two or three election cycle is about how

:01:40.:01:43.

the great middle class of America, the working Americans are squeezed

:01:44.:01:51.

and contracting further down. They're not having as much spending

:01:52.:01:55.

power, jobs are insecure, there is a problem there and it is appealing to

:01:56.:02:03.

the Pope a late Donald Trump. This is a interesting lead article by the

:02:04.:02:06.

Financial Times where they give us a lot of data and saying that the

:02:07.:02:13.

middle-class is now being to 50% of the population as opposed to four

:02:14.:02:22.

decades ago, 61%. It is the poor and rich that are increasing which is

:02:23.:02:27.

quite interesting because we were discussing his previously. You have

:02:28.:02:31.

come back from New York and there the debates was about attributing Mr

:02:32.:02:35.

Trump's success to blue-collar workers. Blue-collar, nonreligious

:02:36.:02:41.

workers. This takes it a lot further. They talk about the numbers

:02:42.:02:47.

of middle class in America. It has been pushed both ways. The super

:02:48.:02:51.

rich, or the rich have been pushed up and there is an exceedingly large

:02:52.:02:55.

number of poorer citizens as well. It is a really interesting piece.

:02:56.:03:03.

Much of this is forced in a way by the increasing incredulity of a lot

:03:04.:03:10.

of people at the trump campaign. Can this man say nothing at all, but

:03:11.:03:14.

will not come out of the race? It appears he is unbeatable. His timing

:03:15.:03:21.

is when his polls go down, he comes up with something controversial. He

:03:22.:03:27.

is way ahead in the polls. This sort of level back in 2008, Hillary

:03:28.:03:34.

Clinton was 20 points ahead. We had Giuliani ahead. In 2012, News green

:03:35.:03:42.

critter was 13 points ahead. Early days. He is building on his fame.

:03:43.:03:59.

Let's go to the Metro. A huge backing for a petition after the

:04:00.:04:05.

tycoon's muslin server stop what is interesting here is it is 300,000, I

:04:06.:04:11.

tell you what, it has gone up even more. I was reporting of it earlier.

:04:12.:04:20.

At that point it was 290,009 went on to try and top up the number and see

:04:21.:04:24.

what is going on and the website had crashed. This petition was only

:04:25.:04:32.

started on Tuesday so it is remarkable. It is gaining huge

:04:33.:04:35.

momentum. What I think is interesting is in America Donald

:04:36.:04:41.

Trump can get away with this because of the first Amendment. Whereas in

:04:42.:04:46.

European countries, including the UK or France, that's not a prospect

:04:47.:04:54.

because he could be, and somebody could complain about the fact it is

:04:55.:05:02.

the public order act of 1986 inciting, it is a person who uses

:05:03.:05:07.

insulting words or behaviour displays any written material which

:05:08.:05:10.

is threatening, abusive or insulting is guilty of an offence. Let's be

:05:11.:05:17.

clear, if he came here and we know George Osborne says they ask when to

:05:18.:05:24.

stop them, if he came here and he said Muslims should not be allowed

:05:25.:05:28.

to fly to America, that would be falling foul of the law. I'm not a

:05:29.:05:34.

lawyer. It looks like it could be. The official policy of the

:05:35.:05:36.

government is to say, we're not going to ban him. What this would do

:05:37.:05:42.

with the American relationship... It is very early days, we're not there

:05:43.:05:47.

yet. It would seem, yes, he could be accused of being a hate... The

:05:48.:05:54.

governments's position is that ban is affected when there is multiple

:05:55.:06:01.

conviction as race hate. These quotes are much more wounding. You

:06:02.:06:03.

have JK Rowling saying he is much worse than for the Mott. Jeb Bush

:06:04.:06:13.

saying he is unhinged. You've got Clive may be saying he is

:06:14.:06:18.

accompanied... We won't go into that! That Prime Minister actually

:06:19.:06:28.

says about a US presidential candidates, this is divisive. This

:06:29.:06:32.

is wrong. Also, interestingly, when Mr Trump didn't just say that he

:06:33.:06:41.

accused Britain, I think London and Britain -- Paris of having no-go

:06:42.:06:46.

areas. Let's say he wins the nomination. He then has two somehow

:06:47.:06:53.

claw his way back to the centre of American politics in order to gain

:06:54.:06:56.

the vast majority of people who are in the middle who haven't decided

:06:57.:07:01.

which way to go. How will he do that on this policy of saying, no Muslims

:07:02.:07:06.

should be allowed into the can 's Mac I don't think he can. He's

:07:07.:07:10.

insulted half the human race from start. He then insulted the New York

:07:11.:07:19.

Times reporter. The female presenter. The Mexicans. This is

:07:20.:07:35.

unbelievable. On it goes. If you are upsetting all those people how do

:07:36.:07:40.

you propose to unite these people if you get to the White House? What is

:07:41.:07:46.

he about? He can't believe he's got this far. People should look at him

:07:47.:07:51.

and go, you are fired. To make this kind of... This is not elevating the

:07:52.:07:58.

debate. As John Kerry were saying, this is not helping the image of

:07:59.:08:02.

America abroad. Everybody is entitled to hold certain views but

:08:03.:08:06.

to be singling out various, whether it is the female sex or all kinds of

:08:07.:08:12.

people, I don't think this is elevating the debate. It is a

:08:13.:08:16.

reflection on the other Republican candidates. They are not strong

:08:17.:08:21.

enough and making interesting enough that this man is getting all the

:08:22.:08:27.

media attention. Let's go to the Telegraph. The plan minister was EU

:08:28.:08:40.

migrant crisis may force this. David Cameron is in difficulty here. He

:08:41.:08:46.

will have difficulty getting a hearing in Brussels stop he could be

:08:47.:08:55.

left high and dry. There is end of the narrative here. That is a

:08:56.:09:02.

choreography that goes here. David Cameron needs a dispute in Brussels.

:09:03.:09:05.

He goes to Brussels, he looks outnumbered, he's involved in a huge

:09:06.:09:12.

row, he gains a partial victory, he comes back holding a bit of the deal

:09:13.:09:15.

that he's won with blood sweat and tears and on we go. We don't have an

:09:16.:09:26.

exit. The lycee Palace wants Britain to stay in, don't they? Will they

:09:27.:09:33.

give David Cameron want he wants? There is a small matter of a

:09:34.:09:35.

presidential election that will be watched carefully. They will not

:09:36.:09:41.

give everything. One of the lines and don't completely agree with in

:09:42.:09:45.

the excellent article of the Daily Telegraph is the fact that they

:09:46.:09:50.

think this appears to show that David Cameron is ruling out a

:09:51.:09:53.

referendum next year. I don't think that is the case. That is incorrect.

:09:54.:10:01.

I would not rule it out next year. Briefly, we are going to go to the

:10:02.:10:05.

Telegraph again. GCHQ Christmas code.

:10:06.:10:16.

GCHQ are going from under the shadows, they have a PR department

:10:17.:10:20.

now. We can talk to them and people have a civil relationship with them.

:10:21.:10:28.

There was needed peace in the FT this is part of the change. Because

:10:29.:10:35.

of the budget, the Palace attacks except, GCHQ was expecting to get

:10:36.:10:42.

1900 more agents in there. It is a very popular place for graduates in

:10:43.:10:47.

Arabic languages, Russian languages, computer studies. This is part of

:10:48.:10:52.

the PR thing. It's a code you have two crack in a Christmas Caryl. I

:10:53.:10:58.

can only one -- think of one man who can crack that and he is in Moscow.

:10:59.:11:08.

Edward Snowden! Thank you both. We will have a look is more stories in

:11:09.:11:15.

an hour's time. Stay with us on BBC News. It is time for the sport.
