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

:00:17.:00:20.

With me are Laura Hughes, political correspondent

:00:21.:00:23.

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

:00:24.:00:25.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with:

:00:26.:00:31.

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

:00:32.:00:42.

been caused by automatic trading. The Financial Times also mentions

:00:43.:00:46.

that story and reports that a group representing business leaders has

:00:47.:00:49.

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

:00:50.:00:55.

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

:00:56.:01:00.

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

:01:01.:01:06.

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

:01:07.:01:10.

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

:01:11.:01:14.

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

:01:15.:01:19.

Brexit. The Guardian examines an increasing pattern of sexual

:01:20.:01:21.

harassment against women in British universities. It also says that

:01:22.:01:27.

foreign academics will be excluded from advising the government on

:01:28.:01:31.

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

:01:32.:01:36.

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

:01:37.:01:41.

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

:01:42.:01:46.

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

:01:47.:01:48.

crash in Cornwall. I am informed that we have 17

:01:49.:01:59.

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

:02:00.:02:03.

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

:02:04.:02:08.

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

:02:09.:02:14.

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

:02:15.:02:19.

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

:02:20.:02:25.

from some ministers that they have conducted this research which has

:02:26.:02:29.

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

:02:30.:02:35.

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

:02:36.:02:41.

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

:02:42.:02:46.

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

:02:47.:02:53.

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

:02:54.:02:57.

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

:02:58.:03:01.

controversial because Theresa May has refused to guarantee these

:03:02.:03:06.

rights because Liam Fox, the international trade Secretary, has

:03:07.:03:09.

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

:03:10.:03:15.

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

:03:16.:03:19.

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

:03:20.:03:24.

that British citizens living in other EU countries will also be

:03:25.:03:29.

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

:03:30.:03:35.

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

:03:36.:03:40.

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

:03:41.:03:47.

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

:03:48.:03:50.

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

:03:51.:03:58.

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

:03:59.:04:04.

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

:04:05.:04:11.

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

:04:12.:04:17.

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

:04:18.:04:21.

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

:04:22.:04:28.

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

:04:29.:04:33.

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

:04:34.:04:43.

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

:04:44.:04:47.

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

:04:48.:04:52.

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

:04:53.:04:56.

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

:04:57.:05:00.

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

:05:01.:05:05.

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

:05:06.:05:11.

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

:05:12.:05:14.

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

:05:15.:05:18.

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

:05:19.:05:23.

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

:05:24.:05:28.

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

:05:29.:05:36.

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

:05:37.:05:41.

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

:05:42.:05:47.

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

:05:48.:05:53.

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

:05:54.:06:00.

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

:06:01.:06:09.

parliamentarians and campaigners saying that Parliament must be

:06:10.:06:12.

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

:06:13.:06:15.

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

:06:16.:06:21.

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

:06:22.:06:26.

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

:06:27.:06:32.

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

:06:33.:06:38.

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

:06:39.:06:45.

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

:06:46.:06:48.

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

:06:49.:06:54.

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

:06:55.:06:59.

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

:07:00.:07:04.

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

:07:05.:07:08.

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

:07:09.:07:15.

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

:07:16.:07:21.

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

:07:22.:07:23.

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

:07:24.:07:27.

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

:07:28.:07:31.

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

:07:32.:07:35.

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

:07:36.:07:39.

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

:07:40.:07:47.

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

:07:48.:07:54.

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

:07:55.:08:00.

the Foreign Office regularly works with academic institutions to get to

:08:01.:08:06.

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

:08:07.:08:11.

office may require security clearance depending on the nation of

:08:12.:08:16.

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

:08:17.:08:18.

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

:08:19.:08:28.

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

:08:29.:08:35.

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

:08:36.:08:41.

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

:08:42.:08:48.

was over a glitch in automated trading. These automated trading

:08:49.:08:53.

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

:08:54.:08:59.

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

:09:00.:09:08.

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

:09:09.:09:12.

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

:09:13.:09:18.

why we felt the effects will strongly and it raises questions

:09:19.:09:25.

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

:09:26.:09:34.

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

:09:35.:09:37.

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

:09:38.:09:46.

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

:09:47.:09:57.

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

:09:58.:10:01.

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

:10:02.:10:12.

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

:10:13.:10:18.

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

:10:19.:10:24.

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

:10:25.:10:31.

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

:10:32.:10:35.

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

:10:36.:10:41.

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

:10:42.:10:44.

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

:10:45.:10:49.

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

:10:50.:10:55.

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

:10:56.:11:00.

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

:11:01.:11:07.

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

:11:08.:11:11.

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

:11:12.:11:17.

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

:11:18.:11:20.

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

:11:21.:11:26.

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

:11:27.:11:34.

that anything that any of her ministers say affects an already

:11:35.:11:40.

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

:11:41.:11:47.

Women fear to report senior male lecturers because of repercussions.

:11:48.:11:54.

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

:11:55.:11:58.

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

:11:59.:12:04.

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

:12:05.:12:11.

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

:12:12.:12:15.

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

:12:16.:12:20.

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

:12:21.:12:25.

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

:12:26.:12:31.

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

:12:32.:12:36.

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

:12:37.:12:48.

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

:12:49.:12:50.

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

:12:51.:12:57.

kind of investigation, but because there was a nondisclosure agreement

:12:58.:13:01.

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

:13:02.:13:08.

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

:13:09.:13:12.

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

:13:13.:13:17.

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

:13:18.:13:24.

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

:13:25.:13:26.

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

:13:27.:13:33.

staff have left their posts. Universities are very close than

:13:34.:13:37.

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

:13:38.:13:44.

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

:13:45.:13:48.

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

:13:49.:13:53.

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

:13:54.:13:59.

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

:14:00.:14:04.

commercialised system because of the University is working on a

:14:05.:14:08.

commercial basis it sees itself as a commercial organisation and its

:14:09.:14:10.

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

:14:11.:14:20.

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

:14:21.:14:29.

have had to become more commercialised. A commercial

:14:30.:14:32.

organisation will feel that rather than dealing with an incident they

:14:33.:14:38.

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

:14:39.:14:44.

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

:14:45.:14:50.

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

:14:51.:14:57.

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

:14:58.:15:03.

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

:15:04.:15:17.

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

:15:18.:15:21.

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

:15:22.:15:25.

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

:15:26.:15:30.

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

:15:31.:15:38.

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

:15:39.:15:41.

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

:15:42.:15:47.

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

:15:48.:15:52.

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

:15:53.:15:57.

The European Parliament will carry out an investigation. Maybe they

:15:58.:16:02.

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

:16:03.:16:08.

that Nigel Farage spoke to The Telegraph today and he is

:16:09.:16:12.

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

:16:13.:16:18.

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

:16:19.:16:22.

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

:16:23.:16:27.

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

:16:28.:16:34.

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

:16:35.:16:37.

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

:16:38.:16:41.

because Steven Woolfe had been a conversation with Tory MEPs about

:16:42.:16:44.

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

:16:45.:16:55.

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

:16:56.:17:01.

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

:17:02.:17:06.

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

:17:07.:17:12.

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

:17:13.:17:18.

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

:17:19.:17:26.

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

:17:27.:17:29.

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

:17:30.:17:37.

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

:17:38.:17:44.

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

:17:45.:17:50.

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

:17:51.:17:57.

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

:17:58.:18:03.

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

:18:04.:18:12.

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

:18:13.:18:18.

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

:18:19.:18:22.

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

:18:23.:18:25.

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

:18:26.:18:28.

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

:18:29.:18:30.

with each night's edition of The Papers being posted

:18:31.:18:34.

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

:18:35.:19:01.

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

:19:02.:19:06.

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

:19:07.:19:10.

the evening, the sunset on
