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

:00:17.:00:19.

With me are Jason Beattie, who's the Political Editor

:00:20.:00:22.

of the Daily Mirror, and Mihir Bose, a columnist

:00:23.:00:24.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with?

:00:25.:00:31.

The call by the head of the CBI for laxer regulations is headlined

:00:32.:00:34.

The Metro's headline reads "Non, merci" in response to calls

:00:35.:00:42.

in France for a new deal with Britain which would allow

:00:43.:00:45.

migrants to claim asylum in Britain before they step on to British

:00:46.:00:48.

The Telegraph has the same story on its front page,

:00:49.:00:52.

adding that the Home Secretary is to meet her French counterpart

:00:53.:00:55.

tomorrow to say that Britain will not negotiate changes

:00:56.:00:57.

And The Daily Express says Britain is facing a "migrant disaster"

:00:58.:01:01.

after the French proposal to change asylum rules.

:01:02.:01:05.

The Guardian has a special report, saying the UN has awarded contracts

:01:06.:01:08.

worth tens of millions of dollars to people associated

:01:09.:01:10.

with President Bashar al Assad under the Syria aid programme.

:01:11.:01:19.

The Daily Mail's headline is "le stitch-up", saying French calls

:01:20.:01:21.

for asylum centre in Calais has sparked fury.

:01:22.:01:28.

Plenty to get our teeth into. Let's start with the metro. This

:01:29.:01:40.

subheading is, Home Office slab stone called by Calle chief to let

:01:41.:01:47.

migrants claim asylum in France. Full what you have is post Brexit

:01:48.:01:55.

fallout. France is saying, why do we have these rules could make you have

:01:56.:01:58.

some genuine concern about what is happening in the Calle camp. There

:01:59.:02:06.

is the lie are as many as 10,000 people living there in horrible

:02:07.:02:16.

conditions. --. Noticeably, it's the potential right wing French

:02:17.:02:21.

candidates, including Nicolas Sarkozy, and Alain Juppe, saying,

:02:22.:02:36.

hang on, via we allowing the Le Touquet agreement, struck in 2003,

:02:37.:02:38.

which says that we have border controls here. Then the local French

:02:39.:02:46.

president of the region has gone one step further, saying, this agreement

:02:47.:02:49.

is not working, people who want to apply for asylum in Britain should

:02:50.:02:53.

do it here rather than waiting to cross. In the corridors of

:02:54.:02:58.

Whitehall, as well as on the high streets of Britain, this is

:02:59.:03:07.

contentious. The Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, is going over tomorrow.

:03:08.:03:12.

When she met Francois Hollande back in July, -- when Theresa May met

:03:13.:03:18.

Francois Hollande in July, they agreed that the Le Touquet agreement

:03:19.:03:23.

would stay in place. Immigration is quite an inflammatory issue which

:03:24.:03:33.

sometimes, particularly in France, is a card you would play. Wet a lot

:03:34.:03:41.

will depend on Amber Rudd's visit tomorrow. It is a treaty between two

:03:42.:03:46.

countries. The other country could want to break that. It is nothing to

:03:47.:03:56.

do with Brexit, they say, but obviously it is fallout from Brexit.

:03:57.:04:02.

Depending on how the election goes, and Nicolas Sarkozy will probably

:04:03.:04:07.

face Marine Le Pen in the final run-off, one could expect the claims

:04:08.:04:15.

and counterclaims of the policies he advocates are going more towards the

:04:16.:04:18.

idea of controlling immigration. I expect it is the first step of a

:04:19.:04:21.

debate that will go on until well after the election. It is not part

:04:22.:04:29.

of the Brexit negotiations. Wads of headlines on the same story, but

:04:30.:04:32.

we'll move on to the Financial Times, where we are also talking

:04:33.:04:38.

Brexit. He we go again! CBI calls for softer regulation as Europe

:04:39.:04:43.

tries to woo city banks. Interestingly, it says this call for

:04:44.:04:47.

more lax regulations as a delegation from Poland heads to London on a

:04:48.:04:52.

charm offensive to lure some of Britain's biggest banks to Warsaw,

:04:53.:04:55.

and it follows attempts from other European cities. The prize of London

:04:56.:05:01.

banking is something that will have to fight hard for. Once we leave,

:05:02.:05:10.

once the exit is made, a lot of the banking will move away, and London

:05:11.:05:17.

will no longer be the banking centre. Frankfurt, Paris, Amsterdam,

:05:18.:05:29.

even Poland, as you mentioned. This 8% tax on profits going is what they

:05:30.:05:32.

are suggesting. You could understand banks asking for that of wide

:05:33.:05:37.

business in the city would ask for, irrespective of whether the move

:05:38.:05:40.

away from the city takes place or not. The Mirror has not always been

:05:41.:05:45.

sympathetic towards the bankers. The element I was about to jump in and

:05:46.:05:49.

say that they are pulling a fast one. -- I was about to jump in and

:05:50.:06:00.

say they are pulling a fast one. They don't like the staff

:06:01.:06:05.

regulations, they never have. They still fail to accept their guilt and

:06:06.:06:15.

contribution towards other natural crash in 2008. And they got off

:06:16.:06:20.

lightly. They did. Not a single banker in the UK has been jailed for

:06:21.:06:24.

compared to the United States, where a large number have. Theresa May has

:06:25.:06:30.

been very strong. The disparity between the haves and the people not

:06:31.:06:35.

having that much has grown, and she wants to reduce the disparity. If

:06:36.:06:41.

she suddenly takes the banks off of the naughty step, that would be

:06:42.:06:46.

counter to what she has been suggesting. Perhaps a change of

:06:47.:06:49.

leader would make the CBI's called desperate. I would be surprised if

:06:50.:06:59.

the Conservative Party wasn't sympathetic to some of its major

:07:00.:07:02.

backers who also happened to work in the city. I also do think this is

:07:03.:07:08.

the city trying to exploit a situation. Here is another battle.

:07:09.:07:14.

Same story, but a different one. Apple hit for billions in back tax

:07:15.:07:19.

after Irish state aid ruling. It is likely to go appeal by both Apple

:07:20.:07:24.

and Ireland, who both deny any wrongdoing, but they are saying that

:07:25.:07:29.

it was illegal state aid from Ireland to lure Apple in. It has

:07:30.:07:34.

been doing the rounds and there has been a battle between Silicon

:07:35.:07:39.

Valley, American high-tech business, and Europe. It shows the European

:07:40.:07:43.

Commission stepping in and getting back taxes from these naughty

:07:44.:07:48.

companies like Apple. We all now about these huge multinationals who

:07:49.:07:55.

don't pay tax to anyone. It is a battle that is ongoing. It reflects

:07:56.:08:01.

some credit on the nasty European union and the European Commission

:08:02.:08:04.

that they do look into these matters. Whether they were lightly

:08:05.:08:10.

bring... Managed to enforce the demand for billions and whether it

:08:11.:08:13.

will work is a different matter, but at least they are doing something

:08:14.:08:16.

more than most governments. Jason, it is something that Apple and

:08:17.:08:22.

Ireland say has nothing wrong with that. Normally there is a two-week

:08:23.:08:29.

embargo period, but this was published in a snap, apparently. I

:08:30.:08:33.

am fascinated because I remember going to Ireland in 2009 when the

:08:34.:08:39.

come true was reeling from the economic crash. An Irish politician

:08:40.:08:46.

said, the problem we have here is, we wanted Berlin levels of public

:08:47.:08:51.

spending, as in Germany, and we wanted Bermuda levels of taxation,

:08:52.:08:57.

and you can't have both. If this is true, for the Bennett of the

:08:58.:09:00.

lawyers, Ireland has been doing sweetheart deals -- for the benefit

:09:01.:09:07.

of the lawyers. All sorts of major companies have made their European

:09:08.:09:10.

headquarters in Ireland because of the low taxation. Ireland gets some

:09:11.:09:16.

of this investment, but it doesn't pay enough tax to pay for the health

:09:17.:09:23.

system and so on. They needed the UK to help them out. They did have a

:09:24.:09:28.

boom. And then they got a very big bust. Apple and Ireland deny any

:09:29.:09:35.

wrongdoing. The Guardian, and I haven't seen on other front pages at

:09:36.:09:43.

the moment, the UN aid mission in Syria pays millions to Assad's

:09:44.:09:46.

regime. They suggest lots of links to the president and deals made

:09:47.:09:55.

despite EU and UN sanctions. What is happening is that these are aid

:09:56.:09:59.

programmes but they are going to organisations that are friends of

:10:00.:10:03.

the Assad regime. One of them is linked to his wife. Or they are

:10:04.:10:08.

going to organisations which are boosting farming and agriculture,

:10:09.:10:14.

which is banned under the impositions of the EU, and there is

:10:15.:10:18.

no guarantee that this money that is meant to provide aid is not actually

:10:19.:10:23.

going straight to the Syrian regime and fuelling its military purposes

:10:24.:10:27.

and what it is doing to its people. This will be damaging to all sorts

:10:28.:10:32.

of charitable causes aimed at Syria, I suppose. The defence from the

:10:33.:10:39.

United Nations, it has put its hands up and said, yes, what are we meant

:10:40.:10:43.

to do? There is a humanitarian catastrophe taking place in this

:10:44.:10:46.

country. We need to try to get aid to them. They cited a hotel bill,

:10:47.:10:55.

saying there was $9 million spent in this hotel because it was the only

:10:56.:10:59.

safe one that our people can work in, but if we don't stay there, we

:11:00.:11:04.

can't even help a few people. They made this calculation, and it is a

:11:05.:11:08.

difficult moral judgment, that if we can help just a few people who, as

:11:09.:11:12.

we said other, are suffering appalling conditions, and almost six

:11:13.:11:18.

years of civil war now, they are saying, if we can't do that, what

:11:19.:11:24.

else are we meant to do? Walk away? It is a very messy, difficult moral

:11:25.:11:28.

decision. I have some sympathy for the United Nations. If you're

:11:29.:11:33.

dealing with totalitarian regimes and you then going to help people

:11:34.:11:38.

there, for the best of reasons, to help the people who are not getting

:11:39.:11:42.

basic supplies and so on, how do you divorce that from the control of a

:11:43.:11:48.

totalitarian regime? Argument to walk away? The victims of the regime

:11:49.:11:54.

will not be helped at all. It is such a difficult question. The Daily

:11:55.:11:58.

Telegraph next. Heart attacks are 50% more likely to be missed in

:11:59.:12:05.

women, a study has suggested. Apparently, many doctors think this

:12:06.:12:09.

only affects middle-aged, overweight men, but symptoms of women, it says,

:12:10.:12:13.

can be less obvious, meaning thousands of patients in need of

:12:14.:12:16.

heart treatment are sent away. Jason. Reading between the lines of

:12:17.:12:24.

this, there is not enough of the story to get the full picture of why

:12:25.:12:27.

this is happening, it seems to come down to basic misogyny. Doctors, and

:12:28.:12:34.

I presume they are both male and female, that heart attacks

:12:35.:12:39.

predominately happened to men and they are not looking for those

:12:40.:12:43.

symptoms among women, which makes you think, should they not be

:12:44.:12:49.

trained to think otherwise? What is interesting here and disturbing is

:12:50.:12:52.

that they seem to suggest that the symptoms are related to indigestion

:12:53.:12:58.

or neck pain. This suggests that they don't do proper diagnosis of

:12:59.:13:05.

what is happening. It is a case of, and we have heard it elsewhere, that

:13:06.:13:10.

the GP tends to say, just taken indigestion pill that will be all

:13:11.:13:15.

right. It was also in the Daily Telegraph, a small story, bottom

:13:16.:13:19.

right, that caught our attention, which is that shoppers want fruit

:13:20.:13:23.

and veg in pounds and ounces since Britain left the EU. This could have

:13:24.:13:30.

been written at any point during the summer. Hats off to Christopher Hope

:13:31.:13:35.

from the Telegraph, my old friend, for sneaking it in just before the

:13:36.:13:39.

silly season wire comes slamming down. It is a great story. It is

:13:40.:13:44.

unlikely to happen on the grounds that most of our scales, measurement

:13:45.:13:51.

and packaging are already metric. You are keen, Anju? I am keen

:13:52.:13:57.

because my weight would look much better. We would all be slimmer on

:13:58.:14:09.

the beam it -- under the metric system. In the tennis, a great win

:14:10.:14:18.

for Kyle Edmonds, who is 20, 21? One would say this is the dividend of

:14:19.:14:24.

Rio. It is a great victory against Richard Gasquet. He is top 15? Yes,

:14:25.:14:33.

13th seed at the US Open. There has been evidence that this is more than

:14:34.:14:39.

just... Andy Murray is exceptional player and has a good chance of

:14:40.:14:42.

winning the US open this year, and I would be surprised if he didn't. I

:14:43.:14:46.

don't want to put the mockers on him by saying that. The other Mike bets

:14:47.:14:53.

are off. And some football stories as well. Wayne Rooney to continue as

:14:54.:15:00.

England captain in the Guardian. Joe Hart informing Manchester City he

:15:01.:15:07.

wants to joint arena. Joe Hart's fall has been quite dramatic. Six

:15:08.:15:11.

months ago, he was undoubtedly the best goalkeeper in the country and

:15:12.:15:14.

no one would have thought that in not being in goal in an England

:15:15.:15:20.

team. With Pep Guardiola coming in, new manager, look at changing the

:15:21.:15:23.

team, and Manchester City doing well and so on, and Joe Hart, I feel a

:15:24.:15:29.

bit sorry for him. He will probably have lost his hair shampoo contract,

:15:30.:15:35.

for a start! Jason, as a fan of London clubs in general... Don't

:15:36.:15:42.

make me mention Charlton Athletic! Have they got a good goalkeeper? A

:15:43.:15:47.

good one on loan from Norwich at the moment. An interesting selection,

:15:48.:15:54.

but the tennis is the main photo on the back page in the sport section

:15:55.:15:58.

of the Guardian. Let's finish with this sad news that Gene Wilder has

:15:59.:16:03.

died. When I was watching it with our film critic earlier, we were

:16:04.:16:07.

watching the clips and, although it is sad that he has died, we were

:16:08.:16:12.

howling with laughter. He was a master of comic acting, wasn't he?

:16:13.:16:23.

Yet I was watching Blazing saddles, and he brought out the dramatic

:16:24.:16:28.

situation, and the humour, which was so funny. Everyone mentions Willy

:16:29.:16:34.

Wonka, but it was the films he did with Mel Brooks that I thought were

:16:35.:16:38.

the great ones. I love The Producers. Which has gone extremely

:16:39.:16:47.

well. Young Frankenstein. These were 70s and 80s, so it shows how long

:16:48.:16:53.

ago they were. But he was very good at sharing the limelight with a

:16:54.:16:55.

co-star, bouncing off another character. There was a slight

:16:56.:17:01.

melancholy in his eyes as well, like a lot of comedians. He had a darker

:17:02.:17:04.

side. Heaven will be laughing more now, which is superb. Superb timing.

:17:05.:17:11.

You saw him and you realise that when he delivered those lines, the

:17:12.:17:15.

way he delivered them... Thank you both very much indeed for your

:17:16.:17:20.

input. We will be coming back to the papers for another look and to see

:17:21.:17:23.

what else is coming in just over half an hour. Don't forget, all the

:17:24.:17:27.

front pages are online on the BBC News website. Also there, you can

:17:28.:17:34.

read a detailed review of the papers, and you can see us, with

:17:35.:17:42.

each night's edition of The Papers being published after it is

:17:43.:17:44.

finished. We'll be back later. It's been a nice day for most of us.

:17:45.:18:00.

A lovely evening, lots of clear skies. The week ahead looks not bad

:18:01.:18:04.

at all. Dry and warm in the southern half of the UK. The further north

:18:05.:18:07.

you go, the weather will be more

:18:08.:18:08.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
