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

:00:14.:00:17.

With me are Benedicte Paviot, Broadcaster at France 24,

:00:18.:00:20.

and Jenni Russell, Columnist at The Times.

:00:21.:00:33.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:34.:00:38.

The Financial Times says the Chancellor will exempt

:00:39.:00:40.

top bankers from post Brexit migration controls.

:00:41.:00:42.

The news that the government is considering re-introducing

:00:43.:00:44.

grammar schools gives the Metro it's front page.

:00:45.:00:46.

The Telegraph goes with the same story, describing it

:00:47.:00:48.

The Guardian also leads with grammar schools,

:00:49.:00:52.

as well as a feature on Sir Nicholas Serota,

:00:53.:00:55.

the outgoing director of the Tate galleries.

:00:56.:00:57.

The Times front page describes the grammar school policy

:00:58.:00:59.

The Express tells us there is proof that statins are a safe way

:01:00.:01:04.

of preventing strokes and heart attacks.

:01:05.:01:06.

And the Mirror leads with the same story,

:01:07.:01:07.

as well as a picture of Amanda Holden and a Labrador.

:01:08.:01:21.

I am sure it makes them somewhere. He knocked her over and licked her

:01:22.:01:35.

face. He is a hero. Half the nation loves labradors and the other half

:01:36.:01:42.

love Amanda Holden. I think we have some of the stories we need to talk

:01:43.:01:48.

about. I'm supposed to be in charge! Let us stop with the Guardian. May

:01:49.:01:56.

has opened the floodgates on grammar schools. Still controversial. It is

:01:57.:02:04.

a Tory Prime Minister who is constantly compared to Margaret

:02:05.:02:09.

Thatcher. Margaret Thatcher ended grammar schools. It was a radically

:02:10.:02:26.

unpopular system and now May is bringing it back in. It looks like

:02:27.:02:30.

the most confused policy I have ever read because any school can apply to

:02:31.:02:34.

be a grammar school, but the big problem in English education is what

:02:35.:02:39.

do you do with children who aren't really academic. There is no talk of

:02:40.:02:47.

setting up schools for children whose strengths lie in different

:02:48.:02:54.

directions. The Guardian says they are the preserves of the middle

:02:55.:02:59.

classes because middle-class parents can tutor their children to pass the

:03:00.:03:06.

exams. There is a lot of tutoring going on. There are a lot of classes

:03:07.:03:13.

that have too many children in them. I don't know how it resolve this

:03:14.:03:20.

problem. Interestingly, Theresa May went to a grammar school, but the

:03:21.:03:24.

new education minister did not. I wonder how much of this has been

:03:25.:03:30.

brought forward? Theresa May will be making her first big Prime Minister

:03:31.:03:33.

speech and it will be on this policy. It's very controversial and

:03:34.:03:39.

although is interesting because it is a cross-party issue, but there is

:03:40.:03:43.

more opposition on the Labour benches than the conservative ones,

:03:44.:03:47.

but it does not resolve problems sizes, the fact that there aren't

:03:48.:03:54.

enough pupils who you can do apprenticeships in engineering or

:03:55.:03:58.

things like that. It seems if all schools can do that, it will be more

:03:59.:04:03.

selective than it is currently. The real problem is that it does not

:04:04.:04:07.

address social mobility because all the evidence shows that by the time

:04:08.:04:12.

you five, your academic path is usually set. We need to pump

:04:13.:04:19.

resources into helping children from zero up to the edge of five. There

:04:20.:04:25.

will be a bigger percentage of children who will have to be taken

:04:26.:04:30.

from poorer backgrounds. I think a spotlight will be on Theresa May in

:04:31.:04:34.

a very big way tomorrow on this and as a first major policy, is it

:04:35.:04:39.

rushed because the notes were seen going into Downing Street? The Daily

:04:40.:04:50.

Telegraph. The headteacher talking to parents outside a grammar school.

:04:51.:04:56.

The captions so, many of our pupils go on to have successful careers

:04:57.:05:01.

opposing selective schools. Let us move on. Statins. Thank you so much,

:05:02.:05:13.

we can share. The express says statins are safe. It has been

:05:14.:05:17.

confusing over the years whether statins are all they have cracked up

:05:18.:05:22.

to be. Interestingly this report on statins, which is also on the front

:05:23.:05:25.

of the Daily Telegraph, says a third of all adults should be taking them.

:05:26.:05:31.

2 million people are currently taking them already in the UK and

:05:32.:05:37.

what this report that is in the Lancet says is that in fact, be side

:05:38.:05:41.

effects have been exaggerated and therefore that there should be

:05:42.:05:46.

double the number of people actually taking the statins, bots, you know,

:05:47.:05:53.

those reports initially criticising it, this is one report. -- Bart. Is

:05:54.:05:59.

this about literally pushing statins down our throat? People should be

:06:00.:06:08.

forgiven for being confused? I been reading statins stories three years

:06:09.:06:14.

and it's evident that the drug companies have taken part in a big

:06:15.:06:20.

push to take Clay make us take statins. It used to only be for

:06:21.:06:31.

people at risk of heart disease. -- make us take statins. They are

:06:32.:06:35.

effective for people with heart disease, but for the rest of us

:06:36.:06:39.

there is evidence that they raise the risk of diabetes, calls muscle

:06:40.:06:50.

pains and have other side-effects. The Daily Telegraph, Swinney

:06:51.:06:59.

backtracks. This is about the SNP watering down plans after a court

:07:00.:07:09.

ruling said having unnamed adult that every child in Scotland would

:07:10.:07:14.

breach parental rights. They are going to press on with this, but in

:07:15.:07:19.

a lesser role. When the Scots announced this I thought it was an

:07:20.:07:27.

appalling idea, that there should be unnamed person licensed to interfere

:07:28.:07:30.

in the life of every child under the age of 18. Why is it appalling if it

:07:31.:07:39.

stops abuse? We haven't got lots of resources. You need to target your

:07:40.:07:48.

resources on the children who are at risk and that is the real crisis in

:07:49.:07:53.

this country. I sat for a couple of years on the panel organised by

:07:54.:07:56.

Michael Gove that looked into serious abuse of children. There

:07:57.:08:00.

aren't enough social workers all health workers to help children who

:08:01.:08:06.

are abuse. A ridiculous waste of money. Imagining having an ill

:08:07.:08:12.

educated person who doesn't know your child wants access to all the

:08:13.:08:19.

records kept on your child. The courts in Scotland have ruled

:08:20.:08:26.

against the... Sorry. We have so much to get through. Surely the

:08:27.:08:33.

argument for watering it down here in this article is that they won't

:08:34.:08:38.

just have carte blanche to look into and referred to every minor incident

:08:39.:08:46.

of somebody's life? The reason why the Deputy First Minister has had to

:08:47.:08:50.

announce this is because a court has ruled that it is breaching parents's

:08:51.:08:56.

human rights and I think it is very much an interference in that sense.

:08:57.:08:59.

It's also an assumption that everything the family is going to

:09:00.:09:03.

need to be followed. It is the wrong way round. The Times, police defeat

:09:04.:09:12.

Isis inspired bomb threat. It seems it was in its early stages, but the

:09:13.:09:16.

head of the Metropolitan Police said in July it's a case of when, not if

:09:17.:09:22.

some sort of Isis linked attack will take place here. Yes. Unfortunately

:09:23.:09:26.

it is a problem that France is a very familiar with, unfortunately.

:09:27.:09:31.

France is still in a state of emergency and I understand some

:09:32.:09:39.

people will be appearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court about

:09:40.:09:43.

this. It's important to remember that the intelligence service and

:09:44.:09:47.

the police do a fantastic job. They have been defeating all sorts of

:09:48.:09:51.

Isis inspired bomb plots, we just don't hear about them. They don't

:09:52.:09:55.

normally make the news because what has been successful, but we all need

:09:56.:10:00.

to be vigilant. We don't know a lot about this particular plot. No, all

:10:01.:10:04.

we know that two brothers were trying to get hold of chemicals to

:10:05.:10:10.

set up an explosive device in west London. The police say it could've

:10:11.:10:19.

been the most serious attack on London. Like the massive attack we

:10:20.:10:32.

could have had in Notre Dame. A quick look at the Financial Times.

:10:33.:10:42.

Hammond pledges to protect top bankers over immigration purge. That

:10:43.:10:47.

is so that people with the skills can still get into London. Part of

:10:48.:10:54.

the EU referendum was the issue of immigration, but the big question

:10:55.:10:58.

the government has to face is who will it stop from coming? It said

:10:59.:11:01.

one of the policies in the future will make sure the is more growth

:11:02.:11:06.

and societies fairer to everybody. So are you going to let in the

:11:07.:11:13.

bankers, as Hammond says he is going to do, or will you give visas to

:11:14.:11:23.

people picking lettuces on the south coast? The government is making

:11:24.:11:27.

clear they want the high-paid, high tax people to come to Britain and to

:11:28.:11:32.

keep the city powerful. Indeed, there was also talk that could

:11:33.:11:44.

become the financial centre. This is about reassurance. The Japanese made

:11:45.:11:50.

some are turning comments at the jid 20 in terms of withdrawing the

:11:51.:11:55.

headquarters, etc. There is a reluctance to invest and here

:11:56.:12:02.

Hammond is pledging free movement for skilled bankers because the city

:12:03.:12:05.

wants to be reassured over post-Brexit controls. The Daily

:12:06.:12:15.

Mail, we must mention Dame Sarah Storey. This is a picture of the

:12:16.:12:22.

cycling champion who has now got her 12 gold medal, I believe it is. She

:12:23.:12:29.

is the most decorated female GB Paralympian. There she is with her

:12:30.:12:36.

daughter who is three, who was born since the last Olympics. She is a

:12:37.:12:42.

busy woman. There she is, back again. She has beaten Taney Grey

:12:43.:12:44.

Thompson's Corp. 12? It is 12. -- Taney Grey Thompson's record.

:12:45.:13:11.

Finally, the Daily Express says the Houses of Parliament could

:13:12.:13:14.

potentially close for six years. Lots of problems with the building,

:13:15.:13:20.

but it's only 150 years old. The MPs are going to what is the Department

:13:21.:13:24.

of Health, which is interesting. I don't know where the bar would be.

:13:25.:13:31.

The Lords will be down the street. Portcullis house was built at great

:13:32.:13:35.

expense and it will be very handy, we are told. It is not too far to

:13:36.:13:40.

walk, so after the big story is that it might move to Manchester or other

:13:41.:13:44.

parts of the country, it went be far from Downing Street. They have

:13:45.:13:52.

problems with the roof... IT, rats, asbestos. Why is going in different

:13:53.:13:58.

places. Fire hazards. It is never a popular thing for a government to

:13:59.:14:02.

say they are going to spend money on maintaining the building and that's

:14:03.:14:08.

why it has got so run down. It's a beautiful building, but it is

:14:09.:14:12.

vulnerable from the Thames. When it was built, we did not think it will

:14:13.:14:21.

be vulnerable like that, especially after what happened on the river

:14:22.:14:31.

with people accessing City Airport. Thank you both. Don't forget, all

:14:32.:14:34.

the pages are online on the BBC website. You will find us there as

:14:35.:14:43.

well because each night edition of the programme is posted on the page

:14:44.:14:48.

shortly after we have finished. Thank you both, nice to have you

:14:49.:14:53.

here. That's it for the moment. Coming up next, the weather.
