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


With me are Laura Hughes, political correspondent


at The Telegraph, and Hugh Muir, associate editor at The Guardian.


Tomorrow's front pages, starting with:


The ally. It leads with the flash crash in the pound that may have


been caused by automatic trading. The Financial Times also mentions


that story and reports that a group representing business leaders has


written to the Prime Minister to warn about the consequences of a


hard Brexit. The Mail says 100 BBC presenters are being investigated


for alleged tax avoidance. The same theme on The Times, that says Wayne


Rooney is facing a three and a half million pound bill for tax


avoidance. The Telegraph leads with the Home Office saying all EU


nationals currently living in the UK will be allowed to stay after


Brexit. The Guardian examines an increasing pattern of sexual


harassment against women in British universities. It also says that


foreign academics will be excluded from advising the government on


Brexit. The interview with the former border agency chief is on the


front page of The Express. He says thousands of illegal migrants have


vanished. The Sun leads with the story involving Amanda Holden, she


is in obtaining a bedside vigil at her sister was involved in a car


crash in Cornwall. I am informed that we have 17


minutes, so stretch your legs. 20 of political story tonight. Starting


with The Telegraph. Every EU migrant could stay after Brexit, all three


points 6 million will have residency rights or be given amnesty by 2019.


This is from the Home Office. This is Home Office research we have been


informed about. I am reading what is on the front page. We have heard


from some ministers that they have conducted this research which has


concluded that legally they cannot deport five out of six EU citizens


living here. 80% of EU citizens who live here at the moment will have


permanent residency rights by March 2019, when we think we will have


probably left. There are discussing amnesty for the extra 600,000 people


who may not have been here for five years, but they figure they cannot


deport these people so they will be allowed to stay. This is quite


controversial because Theresa May has refused to guarantee these


rights because Liam Fox, the international trade Secretary, has


said that we cannot give away this guarantee yet. He was criticised for


describing these EU citizens as one of our main cards in the


negotiation. To say that everyone can stay before we have guaranteed


that British citizens living in other EU countries will also be


allowed to stay where they are cop-mac to see this might be


controversial is an understatement. Page three years to be the marmalade


dropper, I am out on a lot of The Daily Telegraph readers might be so


shocked. A lot of The Daily Telegraph readers who voted for


Brexit and marmalade will being smashed all over the home countries.


-- home counties. They voted to have fewer EU migrants and they are being


told this will not be the case. But after 2019, different rules would


apply so there would be different rules about who could comment. It is


easier to control not EU migration, but this will change. This is not


the impression that people were given. They would be entitled to say


that they have been told a lie here. This adds to the sense that there is


a muddle. This seems to conflict with what the Prime Minister was


saying. They point out that Liam Fox had said that EU nationals were in


negotiating chip. I wonder if we should look at this in the context


of what happened that the Tory party conference last week, with the Home


Office came out of this looking very harsh and Amber Rudd looked very


harsh. There have been stories about a lurch to the right. Maybe this is


to soften things up a bit and you get the sense that it will not be as


to call me in as we fear. As you alluded to, Laura, this would work


well for British nationals who are living in other parts of the EU


might have thought they will have to come home. I don't know if they


wanted this to come out yet, but it is good news because it will be good


for British people living abroad. We still do not know what will happen


after we have left. It is just saying that people who are already


here. World have to be a time limit or a cap on who comes here when and


who they will offer amnesty to, because there could be a rush of


people wanting amnesty. They might want to introduce some kind of date


deadline. It is not too emphatic at this point. Maybe this is more


parliamentarians and campaigners saying that Parliament must be


involved in these discussions and the fact that there is such a muddle


and nothing seems to be clear strengthens that. We can get The


Guardian. The first story is that foreign experts are excluded from


advising the UK on Brexit. This has been on social media recently. It


has. Some academics from the London School of Economics said that


foreign experts were to be excluded. The Foreign Office have contested


that and said maybe there is an element of misunderstanding, but it


points again to model, because we were being told that we do not have


the experts to negotiate this Brexit, we were told we will employ


them from around the world. Now we are being told that my not be


possible. Some of these academics have been posting on Twitter saying


they had been told that they would not be allowed to work because they


are not British. There was a meeting from London School of Economics and


the Foreign Office and the head of the European Institute has said that


she had this meeting and was told by she had this meeting and was told by


head of research at the Foreign Office but this was going to happen


and that now from -- and that from now one the one about a British


passport would not be able to work on this research or advise the


government on Brexit. The Foreign Office has said that was not said,


but... They have not been able to squash the story. It just adds to


The i knees. Let me help because a spokesperson has said tonight that


the Foreign Office regularly works with academic institutions to get to


research, and that will not have changed. Anyone working in the


office may require security clearance depending on the nation of


their work. We are an outward looking nation and we will continue


to take advice from the best and brightest regardless of nationality.


We shall see. The Financial Times, flash crash. May is warned over hard


Brexit as the pound crash highlights fears. This was the overnight plunge


on the Asian markets of the value of sterling. It dropped to $1.18. It


was over a glitch in automated trading. These automated trading


systems that are designed to respond to stories in the news. Overnight


left has been traded so the effects would have been felt harder. The


machines went on alert. The French president said that we must have a


difficult Brexit negotiation and they sold the pound hard. That is


why we felt the effects will strongly and it raises questions


about whether machine should do it. It does show us the real point of


this story, which is that the business leaders have written to


Theresa May saying they are very worried about a hard Brexit. Remind


us what a hard Brexit is. Whether we should stay in the single market or


in the customs union. They are really worried about a hard Brexit


and that seems to be the real dispute. It does seem to be a


dispute in the Conservative Party. If you come out of the single


market, what can you still have? What are you stuck with? It still


needs to be negotiated. What will that look like for tariffs? It is


not clear yet. Businesses are saying they want to be involved in know


what is going on. David Davis is saying that it has to be behind


closed doors. The language Theresa May was using in Birmingham earlier


this week at the party conference was anti-business. She attacked a


lot of firms that are not paying their taxes. I think people are


sensitive at the moment. A cheap pound is good for British businesses


that export. That is true, but uncertainty isn't. If you are


trading, how long will that be the case? Whether the pound is cheaper


not you need to know Dennis T and what is going to happen not just


this week but next month. I don't think business has that and that is


what is still problematic for them at the moment. For Theresa May, I


think it probably sits higher to play this long but while she does


that anything that any of her ministers say affects an already


volatile situation. Victims revealed the scale of abuse at universities.


Women fear to report senior male lecturers because of repercussions.


We doubt a story a while ago about the abuse of nondisclosure


agreements, when an allegation is made it is dealt with internally and


all parties have to sign a nondisclosure agreement, so no one


ever knows what happened. This means that the guilty party can then go on


and get another job because there is no record of it. Having done that


story, we sought to talk to people who had been involved in some of


these cases and we managed to communicate with 100 of them and


they have told us some pretty horrifying things. Tales of boolean,


serial harassment, sexual assault, and rape. -- tales of boolean. He


told us that these things were not investigated, people felt they could


not report them because they did not trust the system. There were some


kind of investigation, but because there was a nondisclosure agreement


none of that came to light. This is 100 individuals that The Guardian


has managed to unearth. You can only assume there are many more we do not


know about. It is a shocking story and a good piece of journalism. It


shows how social media can be very powerful are getting in touch with


people. What is worrying, I was working in my student newspaper and


we looked into these nondisclosure agreements. When you do not know why


staff have left their posts. Universities are very close than


isolated and it is worrying that these young women feel that they


cannot come out for fear of ruining their academic reputation. Some


people have compared this to the Jimmy Savile case and what has


happened in the Catholic Church, a hidden culture with older professors


preying on younger members of staff. You get to this if you have a


commercialised system because of the University is working on a


commercial basis it sees itself as a commercial organisation and its


reputation is very important. It will have other priorities. Since


universities have had to .com will commercialise, has this gone up. --


have had to become more commercialised. A commercial


organisation will feel that rather than dealing with an incident they


just have to deal with it quickly and it is in their interest to keep


it quiet. How did you find out about the nondisclosure agreements? Can


remember how we found out about them, but we did. Good student


journalism. Back to The Telegraph and Matt. Not a lot of light relief


tonight. I'll ask you both for the joke at the end. I will not do that


to you. Popping into the Ukip offers, bitterly disappointing news,


we did not win the Nobel Peace Prize. The Telegraph fills in some


of the detail about what has been going on. We know Steven Woolfe is


in hospital after a punch-up, but what punch-up? Mike Hookem says it


was nothing. He told The Telegraph they were not punching each other,


they were hugging like a pair of parts. He has denied punching Steven


Woolfe and said that he fell back and hit his head. Steven Woolfe told


The Daily Mail last night he had been punched. It is very confusing.


The European Parliament will carry out an investigation. Maybe they


have CCTV. Someone is not telling the truth. More on that story is


that Nigel Farage spoke to The Telegraph today and he is


questioning the future of Ukip and saying this is a huge crisis. It


does raise the point, what is the future of Ukip without Nigel Farage?


When you have Theresa coming out with a lot of policies could be


quite popular to people that support Ukip. She is same Brexit means


Brexit. So many of the disillusioned Tories removed the Ukip might feel


like going back and that is exactly what this dispute was all about


because Steven Woolfe had been a conversation with Tory MEPs about


defecting, and that is why this meeting was called and why Mike


Whistle charged up. This is politics, Jim, but not as we know


it. It is what happens when a party loses its reason to be. Is there not


a reason to hold the government to account to make sure that there is a


proper Brexit? But what will they do in Europe? They are not part of the


negotiating team on either side and they will not be involved. And they


will lose all their MEPs. Then maybe they should lose than sooner because


they do not seem to have much to do other than to have altercations. I


think Theresa May has stolen most of their close this week and they don't


have anything to do. When political parties do not have much to do in


policy, the time personalities. I not reaching out to disenfranchised


Labour voters? Are they able to reach out to anyone? I am not sure


that they know how. With what? What are their policies. I do not think


they have any. Was just Nigel Farage? Point-mac we did our best to


you. That is it from us tonight. Don't forget all the front pages


are online on the BBC News website, where you can read a detailed


review of the papers. It's all there for you -


seven days a week And you can see us there too,


with each night's edition of The Papers being posted


on the page shortly after we've Good evening. The weather is looking


dry and settled for many of us for much of the week ahead. High


pressure is dominating our weather. Here is a scene captured earlier in
