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

:00:00.:00:19.

With me are the political commentator Jo Phillips

:00:20.:00:22.

and the Sunday Mirror's political editor, Nigel Nelson.

:00:23.:00:32.

Let's have a look at some of the front pages before we discuss them

:00:33.:00:36.

in detail. The Observer leads with a warning

:00:37.:00:39.

about the health of the NHS - top bosses saying it's

:00:40.:00:42.

on the brink of collapse. Meanwhile, British

:00:43.:00:45.

traditions are under threat A government review will point

:00:46.:00:46.

the finger at growing ethnic Own your own home for ?900

:00:47.:00:50.

because of the Help to Buy scheme - that's the main headline

:00:51.:00:56.

on the Sunday Express. The Sunday Mirror continues

:00:57.:00:58.

its reports of claims Last week, Mr Vaz referred

:00:59.:01:00.

the allegations to his solicitors. Plans for new grammar schools

:01:01.:01:06.

are being drawn up by councils following yesterday's announcement

:01:07.:01:09.

by the Prime Minister - that's the front page

:01:10.:01:11.

of the Sunday Times. While the Independent

:01:12.:01:13.

dedicates its front page The ceasefire is due to come

:01:14.:01:16.

into effect on Monday. So, shall we start with the Sunday

:01:17.:01:34.

Times? The councils opening new grammar schools offering thousands

:01:35.:01:38.

of places. It is almost as if they saw it coming. These are five

:01:39.:01:51.

councils where there is already selective education. This is not

:01:52.:02:02.

surprising that some councils. This, I think, will prove to be a missed

:02:03.:02:09.

fort and miss timed move by Theresa May. She, like I, are grammar goals

:02:10.:02:16.

but there is a great danger that we look back at those of us who

:02:17.:02:20.

benefited many years ago with a nostalgia that is not appropriate

:02:21.:02:26.

for schools today. What is wrong with grammar schools? There is

:02:27.:02:31.

nothing wrong with them. It is how you get into them. Yes, the

:02:32.:02:36.

selection process. It is increasingly hard to get into them.

:02:37.:02:42.

All children should have access to good schools and good teachers, it

:02:43.:02:46.

should not depend on where you live and whether or not you can afford

:02:47.:02:50.

tutoring. It is about social mobility. Yes. And there has always

:02:51.:02:58.

been a divide between grammar school kids and the others. There was

:02:59.:03:03.

always the thing that the rich kids went to private schools and

:03:04.:03:11.

everybody else went to the second very model. Things have changed

:03:12.:03:16.

since then. It is not just the social scene, is it? Schools in the

:03:17.:03:28.

deprived areas do not always have good education. And there are people

:03:29.:03:32.

like me who go to pieces in the exam hall. I am not against the idea of

:03:33.:03:38.

grammar schools but what I am against is the fact that they have

:03:39.:03:41.

announced this without consideration. So Theresa May has

:03:42.:03:49.

come up with an idea that selection is not merely at 11, it can also be

:03:50.:03:54.

at 13 or 16, I do not think that is appropriate either. If there could

:03:55.:03:59.

in assessment process that was continual that would decide which

:04:00.:04:02.

schools would benefit from which children, that would be different.

:04:03.:04:07.

She needs a detailed plan about how this may work. At the moment it does

:04:08.:04:12.

not seem as if she could get it through the two houses, certainly

:04:13.:04:16.

the house of of Lords. Many comprehensive schools rise to the

:04:17.:04:23.

challenge, don't they? If there is a grammar school down the road, the

:04:24.:04:26.

comprehensive really goes for it. There is no reason it cannot work

:04:27.:04:32.

but we don't know how it will work. She has bounced into it, we feel,

:04:33.:04:37.

because there was a leak earlier in the week. I imagine what she planned

:04:38.:04:41.

to do was to use party conferencing in a couple of weeks time and then

:04:42.:04:46.

float the idea without having to go into too much detail. Suddenly now

:04:47.:04:52.

she needs to put flesh on this idea. Like you say, even as a modern high

:04:53.:05:01.

schools raise their grades, private schools expect a huge boost because

:05:02.:05:04.

if there will be more grammar schools, there will be a process of

:05:05.:05:11.

those who can afford it... It does not do anything for social mobility

:05:12.:05:15.

today. It may have done 20 or 30 years ago. I think or intention is

:05:16.:05:24.

very clear and she has launched a scathing attack on public schools

:05:25.:05:28.

which is another knife in the back to the old It -- eaten attendees.

:05:29.:05:51.

This has come from the NHS chiefs. Yes, it comes from providers and

:05:52.:05:55.

they speak for hospital trust and chief executives. It is a familiar

:05:56.:06:01.

litany now that they are running out of money and cannot meet targets

:06:02.:06:06.

without some major influx of cash in the Autumn statement. It does seem

:06:07.:06:12.

that we are getting to a point where we are going to have to start really

:06:13.:06:17.

thinking about radical solutions for the NHS because we really can't

:06:18.:06:20.

afford to keep it going. So either we will need to pay an awful lot

:06:21.:06:25.

more in tax for it, it is clear that the amount of money that is being

:06:26.:06:30.

put in is not enough so either through taxation or the idea of

:06:31.:06:35.

charging for certain services. I was interviewing a hospital on BBC radio

:06:36.:06:39.

the other week that had started crowd funding. Just to raise funds.

:06:40.:06:47.

It would not matter how much money you poured into the NHS because

:06:48.:06:51.

there will be demand, the demand is insatiable. In a way it goes back to

:06:52.:06:55.

the grammar school thing, if you tackle something, schools are not

:06:56.:07:01.

the big issue. The NHS is and always is as we approach winter. The

:07:02.:07:07.

expectations of people is that they will be seen by a doctor, referred

:07:08.:07:12.

to a specialist and will walk out of the doctor surgery with a

:07:13.:07:15.

prescription and if they want an ambulance they will get one. We

:07:16.:07:19.

actually have, somebody, somewhere, some politician has to be brave

:07:20.:07:24.

enough to tackle that. Tackle our perceptions? I think it is more our

:07:25.:07:32.

sentimentality about it. The problem about discussing it with

:07:33.:07:34.

politicians, they recognise that there are certain things that must

:07:35.:07:39.

be done we do not go out there and say it because the moment a

:07:40.:07:41.

politician says anything about the yen hate S, the community

:07:42.:07:45.

misconstrue sit as an attack and they are dead in the water. And

:07:46.:07:50.

there is something strange about the British character... We are in love

:07:51.:07:55.

with the NHS. We are quite protective of it. The idea that it

:07:56.:08:01.

cannot change be it cannot use what is a 1948 model for a 20th -- 21st

:08:02.:08:14.

century servers. Steady on, steady on. Serious crime set to join the

:08:15.:08:24.

list of other hate crimes. This is misogyny in England and Laos. This

:08:25.:08:30.

is Nottingham where they have been trialling using misogyny under the

:08:31.:08:35.

definition of a hate crime. They have been doing an experiment there,

:08:36.:08:41.

police in Notting ham, they have had 20 investigations in two mums,

:08:42.:08:45.

investigating a case of misogyny every three days. They have

:08:46.:08:51.

specially trained officers targeting behaviour from unwanted physical

:08:52.:08:53.

approaches through the street harassment, and other forces are now

:08:54.:08:58.

looking at this. What we do not know is whether the investigations have

:08:59.:09:04.

led to any prosecutions or whether somebody has been told to behave

:09:05.:09:07.

better or where it is actually going. There are two things here.

:09:08.:09:12.

Many people listening to this and thinking well, there are other

:09:13.:09:16.

things that the police could be dealing with. There are also people

:09:17.:09:25.

on the other side which is more nuanced, which is where women,

:09:26.:09:29.

affected by misogyny, they feel more able to go to the police and that

:09:30.:09:34.

they are complaints will be taken seriously. And now that the BBC is

:09:35.:09:40.

talking about it, they will know that possible. The problem is that

:09:41.:09:47.

it was initially successful in Notting ham and other forces are

:09:48.:09:52.

looking for it. But what is the criteria for success? Hate crimes

:09:53.:09:58.

reported to them when it comes to women but is the same thing happened

:09:59.:10:03.

in disabled hate crime came in. I have some figures I was looking at

:10:04.:10:08.

this week that says disabled hate crime has gone up 40% in the last

:10:09.:10:12.

year. What does that mean? Does that mean that people hate disabled

:10:13.:10:17.

people more than they did the previous year or that police at

:10:18.:10:24.

catching more haters? Or that people are reporting it more. But what is

:10:25.:10:30.

the criteria for these crimes? We will find out, won't we. Let's move

:10:31.:10:36.

on to the Independent. This will be a big story. We can be forgiven for

:10:37.:10:44.

not feeling that this is a turning point, that is the question that the

:10:45.:10:47.

Independent asks when it comes to the ceasefire in Syria. The whole

:10:48.:10:52.

thing is that we do not know until it starts on Monday. He reported

:10:53.:10:56.

that more than 100 people have been killed today, and this has happened

:10:57.:11:02.

before. A wall becomes more deadly, I am told, in the hours before a

:11:03.:11:09.

ceasefire. Yes, the final spasms of somebody tries to grab more

:11:10.:11:11.

Territorian before the ceasefire begins. The idea of the Russians and

:11:12.:11:16.

the Americans coming together, that could reduce the violence. The

:11:17.:11:21.

problem is whether it works out. At the moment, the South feels more

:11:22.:11:28.

say. As far as the Americans are concerned that aside and not stay

:11:29.:11:33.

there, he must go. The Russians and the Americans need to agree about

:11:34.:11:39.

what happens to a side. It is an interesting deal, part rivals, and

:11:40.:11:53.

part allies. Russia are close Assad. It will put pressure on the

:11:54.:11:57.

Americans to use their pressure on Turkey and Saudi Arabia. We call it

:11:58.:12:07.

a coalition... Hull it is not. It is but it is not. It is a group of

:12:08.:12:14.

countries. There are so many factions here. What is happening in

:12:15.:12:20.

Syria is an absolute microcosm of everything in the Middle East with

:12:21.:12:24.

so many things. And the knock-on to the neighbouring countries and

:12:25.:12:28.

tribes, be it Kurdish, Sony or Shi'ite Muslims, the most important

:12:29.:12:35.

thing is that if there is a ceasefire then humanitarian aid can

:12:36.:12:42.

get through. Quickly, we only have 40 seconds, let's squeeze in the

:12:43.:12:47.

Sunday Telegraph. Political correctness eating a threat to

:12:48.:12:51.

Christmas. This is an annual story, isn't it? It is a little different.

:12:52.:12:58.

The headline overdoes it but the head of integration has come out

:12:59.:13:02.

with a report on to how integration should work. She says how could

:13:03.:13:11.

anybody object to calling a Christmas tree a Christmas tree. It

:13:12.:13:20.

was political correctness. She wants us to look at the issue of

:13:21.:13:25.

integration and basically, no-one could take offence at the phrase

:13:26.:13:29.

Christmas tree so let's try to be more sensible. And it was a

:13:30.:13:36.

year-long study. Excellent salary will run again next Christmas. Thank

:13:37.:13:41.

you for taking a through the papers and thank you to you for joining us.

:13:42.:13:46.

Next up we have a review of films.
