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

:00:13.:00:15.

With me are Matthew Syed, who's a columnist for the Times,

:00:16.:00:19.

and Charlie Wells, who's European Features Reporter

:00:20.:00:20.

The Financial Times says Germany is stepping up attempts to lure

:00:21.:00:30.

The Metro lampoons the Home Secretary,

:00:31.:00:35.

calling her Amber Rudderless, after she ditches plans

:00:36.:00:38.

to make companies list their foreign workers.

:00:39.:00:41.

The NHS is under attack by cyber criminals, says the i,

:00:42.:00:44.

with hackers demanding millions of pounds in ransom money.

:00:45.:00:50.

The Daily Telegraph leads on comments by the Housing Minister,

:00:51.:00:52.

who suggests grandparents should leave their homes

:00:53.:00:54.

to their grandchildren to help ease the housing crisis.

:00:55.:00:57.

The Guardian says the UK is planning to move immigration controls

:00:58.:01:00.

to the Republic of Ireland to avoid a "hard border" between north

:01:01.:01:04.

They born into Theresa May on the possible impact of tighter

:01:05.:01:16.

immigration controls. There is a surfeit of coverage on

:01:17.:01:30.

Donald Trump. This is the metro, top Republicans deserting Donald in

:01:31.:01:36.

their droves. How can they dump him at this stage? That is not the

:01:37.:01:41.

question I would ask, it is why have they not want him already, after

:01:42.:01:47.

those comments about Mexicans, that they are criminals and rapists,

:01:48.:01:51.

building a wall? Piece are disgusting things about disabled

:01:52.:01:56.

people, he is clearly misogynistic, and it is remarkable that John

:01:57.:02:00.

McCain had been with him to this point, the senators who are now

:02:01.:02:03.

jumping ship because they think that they may be tainted in their

:02:04.:02:07.

re-election campaigns by association. It is remarkable that

:02:08.:02:14.

this man, the number of things he said publicly, as opposed to this

:02:15.:02:18.

illicit conversation that he said privately, has not been sufficient.

:02:19.:02:23.

It was interesting, in your interview with Nigel Farage, whether

:02:24.:02:28.

the American public have already discounted this aspect of his

:02:29.:02:31.

personality, and if they are pre-committed to him, if they are

:02:32.:02:36.

going to change their vote or not. There is something special about

:02:37.:02:41.

this video, its comments, and how authentic it seems. There is this

:02:42.:02:46.

idea about how average people don't trust institutions that have been

:02:47.:02:50.

around for a long time, mainstream media, political parties, and this

:02:51.:02:56.

video almost looks like a Facebook video, it is shot in a bus, it seems

:02:57.:03:02.

like banter between two people, and that is why it is resonating so

:03:03.:03:07.

much. It is remarkable, when he is on the record, he says things that

:03:08.:03:15.

are outrageous and extremist. Because this was Private, I am not

:03:16.:03:20.

saying it is not disgusting, I would never endorse it, it is horrible,

:03:21.:03:25.

but it was a private conversation that was illicitly recorded, so for

:03:26.:03:28.

this to be the breaking point is odd, it should have happened a long

:03:29.:03:32.

time before. The Financial Times says the Republicans are in crisis

:03:33.:03:38.

as officials abandoned the campaign. Some senior figures in the party now

:03:39.:03:41.

say they want nothing to do with him. This is John McCain, Mitt

:03:42.:03:46.

Romney, the previous political candidates, George Bush says he will

:03:47.:03:52.

vote for Hillary Clinton. This article focuses on Congress and how

:03:53.:04:01.

a number of senators who are in tough re-elections are distancing

:04:02.:04:06.

themselves, and the party is trying to maintain control of the Senate

:04:07.:04:10.

and the house and moving away from Donald Trump. The Guardian says he

:04:11.:04:15.

hits out at Republican hypocrites. He says he still has a lot of

:04:16.:04:19.

support, he is critical of the leadership, and says they are

:04:20.:04:26.

self-righteous. He is so pugnacious. This is a time for contrition. One

:04:27.:04:32.

imagines that his tacticians have told him before going into the

:04:33.:04:36.

debate tonight, at 2am, I am thinking of staying up, it will be

:04:37.:04:43.

exciting. If he can sound contrite at the beginning, that will play

:04:44.:04:47.

well with the religious right, who he needs on side to a large extent,

:04:48.:04:51.

given he has alienate it so many other groups. Under pressure, it is

:04:52.:04:57.

difficult for him not to come out swinging, he is pugnacious. This

:04:58.:05:01.

tweet about self-righteous hypocrites, that is him in the raw.

:05:02.:05:08.

If he decides that he is going to come out and start talking about the

:05:09.:05:12.

allegations against ill Clinton, is that raising the bar in the way that

:05:13.:05:18.

will help him? In this story, we see the word hypocrites in the headline,

:05:19.:05:22.

he is calling the Clintons hypocrites. He has talked about the

:05:23.:05:28.

indiscretions, about Hillary Clinton enabling that behaviour, and a lot

:05:29.:05:33.

of commentators said he is a wounded animal, he could almost do anything.

:05:34.:05:40.

It will be interesting. He is under pressure, and when somebody like

:05:41.:05:44.

that is cornered, you can imagine fireworks, he will not be able to

:05:45.:05:48.

stick to the game plan. The format of the debate is unique, it is a

:05:49.:05:55.

town hall, you have to work the audience, you have to work the

:05:56.:05:58.

opponent, and the TV audience. That will add flocks. A picture of him

:05:59.:06:09.

with his daughter. Talking about comments that he is said to have

:06:10.:06:13.

made to his own, or about his own daughter. This is in a conversation

:06:14.:06:21.

with Howard Stern. Donald Trump has struggled with suburban voters in

:06:22.:06:26.

the United States. They are a key demographic. I don't think talking

:06:27.:06:31.

in this way about his daughter will bode well. Speechless, really,

:06:32.:06:45.

voluptuous and a piece of something. Tactically, I am interested in the

:06:46.:06:48.

psychology of performance, it will be interesting. There are big issues

:06:49.:06:52.

at stake, the future of the world, just that! But it is interesting,

:06:53.:06:58.

the psychology of these set piece debates, with the whole nation

:06:59.:07:04.

watching. The world watching. The pressure has intensified. It is

:07:05.:07:08.

highly volatile, what will happen tonight. Let's stay with the

:07:09.:07:14.

Telegraph, inheritance should skip a generation, says minister. The

:07:15.:07:18.

Minister says tensioners should forget their kids and hand there is

:07:19.:07:32.

date, there has savings,... It works if they change inheritance tax laws,

:07:33.:07:37.

does it? They would not even need to do it. The point is that adults were

:07:38.:07:44.

able to buy homes when they were less relatively expensive, and their

:07:45.:07:50.

parents as well, and so grandparents should skip a generation, so my

:07:51.:07:53.

parents would give their money to my children, rather than to me. I am on

:07:54.:07:59.

the ladder, I am lucky enough to be there. House prices have gone viral,

:08:00.:08:05.

especially with quantitative easing. They are talking about

:08:06.:08:08.

intergenerational injustice, it is a fair point, I just wonder if it is

:08:09.:08:13.

workable. Will people accept what a politician is telling them to do?

:08:14.:08:16.

Not everybody has wealthy grandparents. A lot of grandparents

:08:17.:08:20.

don't own their own homes, they don't have large savings. How

:08:21.:08:27.

controversial is inheritance tax in America? It is less controversial

:08:28.:08:35.

than it is 40%, and another thing here, this idea of time. Make

:08:36.:08:41.

investment and make time work for you, so the longer these

:08:42.:08:45.

grandparents are in the market, they will grow and it could be beneficial

:08:46.:08:51.

for their grandchildren. I want you as my financial adviser, I bought

:08:52.:08:59.

all of that! Don't trust me with more than a 20 quid note! Let's look

:09:00.:09:05.

at the Financial Times. Frankfurt steps up bid to win London banks

:09:06.:09:11.

after Brexit. Germany looking at the change in Labour laws. This has been

:09:12.:09:16.

on the cards, this is what the Remain camp said, London will not be

:09:17.:09:24.

as attractive. I am an expat, I love London, no evidence to Frankfurt, I

:09:25.:09:28.

would not want to go there. This article talks about stuff loving

:09:29.:09:34.

living in London and would favour Amsterdam or Paris over Frankfurt. I

:09:35.:09:40.

can see that. But this is big for the UK. It is such a big source of

:09:41.:09:44.

tax revenues for the Exchequer. It is interesting that German ministers

:09:45.:09:51.

have been meeting senior bankers, trying to change some of their

:09:52.:09:54.

implement laws to make it more attractive as a place for them to

:09:55.:09:59.

go. They could make the tax advantages... They could throw the

:10:00.:10:03.

kitchen sink at it but bankers will not want to live in Frankfurt. The

:10:04.:10:08.

city that will benefit is New York, potentially, they could do virtual

:10:09.:10:12.

trading through Europe. They have said that New York could be the big

:10:13.:10:17.

beneficiary. The big loser will be the British taxpayer. There was talk

:10:18.:10:24.

of trying to make London remain as an attractive place, the passport

:10:25.:10:30.

idea, so bankers could come and go even without freedom of movement

:10:31.:10:34.

across the EU. With globalisation, that could be possible, even if

:10:35.:10:39.

London does not remain part of the single market. But it means these

:10:40.:10:45.

things could be happening from New York as well. When trades are made

:10:46.:10:49.

in split seconds, it does not matter if there is an ocean in between. You

:10:50.:10:56.

can't go to Frankfurt! They are already dejected in Germany! The

:10:57.:11:03.

Guardian, the UK seeks to move border into Ireland. James Braid

:11:04.:11:10.

clincher hopeful on talks with Dublin two strengthen immigration

:11:11.:11:14.

controls. When we decided we wanted to leave the EU, that border between

:11:15.:11:19.

Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland became of great interest,

:11:20.:11:25.

because that is the land border between the EU and not. Which is why

:11:26.:11:33.

this idea of extending the border to the whole of Ireland has been

:11:34.:11:36.

approached. It is interesting, some technical details in this article.

:11:37.:11:41.

They have said that President already exist. It is NHS thing

:11:42.:11:50.

article, stop making me laugh! The Indian and Chinese visitors are

:11:51.:11:53.

subject to a system, they apply for a single Visa valid for Ireland and

:11:54.:11:59.

the UK. But that is because we are all in the EU at the moment. It

:12:00.:12:04.

would be different, and there is a point about the Good Friday

:12:05.:12:07.

Agreement, a volatile situation between Northern Ireland and the

:12:08.:12:11.

Republic of Ireland, and this risks putting that into play again. What

:12:12.:12:17.

is in it for Ireland to do this for Britain? It is a lot of work, I am

:12:18.:12:22.

not sure. There is a quote, new Calais. That is serious. The French

:12:23.:12:29.

have said, we don't want any more to do with this, and Britain has

:12:30.:12:34.

immigration offices on the other side of the Channel. France could

:12:35.:12:40.

easily say, no more, to that. This is highly sensitive politically. It

:12:41.:12:45.

will be interesting to see the extent to which the British and

:12:46.:12:48.

Irish governments can nail down a workable policy that makes the

:12:49.:12:53.

borders secure without triggering some of the political sensitivities

:12:54.:12:57.

that you mention. One benefit for Ireland, there is still movement

:12:58.:13:00.

between the Republic and Northern Ireland. Without everybody having to

:13:01.:13:07.

show passport. But part of the argument wanting to leave. We would

:13:08.:13:11.

take back control of our borders. I am not sure that will happen. It

:13:12.:13:16.

depends on the single market, for a start. What will it mean, will it be

:13:17.:13:21.

hard or soft? All of that is still up in the air. The Conservative

:13:22.:13:26.

Party have not got their ducks in a line, and there is a debate about

:13:27.:13:30.

whether MPs should have the power of veto over the precise mechanics of

:13:31.:13:35.

Brexit. How can Britain decide what it wants Brexit to look like? It is

:13:36.:13:42.

a negotiation. It might not start until March. We'll line at airports

:13:43.:13:49.

be longer? They are long enough already! They are very long!

:13:50.:13:56.

Particularly in Ireland, potentially. Let's finish with the

:13:57.:14:02.

Metro. A play on words. Rudderless Modi Home Secretary, Amber Road.

:14:03.:14:09.

Labour ridicule her after a U-turn on plans to make all firms list

:14:10.:14:14.

their foreign workers. This came up at the Conservative Party

:14:15.:14:16.

conference, so we could get an idea of whether British firms are

:14:17.:14:19.

employing home-grown talent or importing it. Theoretically, it is a

:14:20.:14:25.

good point, if there is a deficit of talent in a country, and firms feel

:14:26.:14:31.

they need to bring in foreign workers, it makes sense to develop

:14:32.:14:36.

skills for the workers of the new country, but the controversy would

:14:37.:14:42.

be naming and shaming, accusations of racism, people like me, who work

:14:43.:14:46.

at firms that are based in the UK, might have their names published as

:14:47.:14:51.

foreigners working in the UK. The optics of that are so prejudicial,

:14:52.:14:58.

it sounds so bigoted, and it is interesting they have ridden back

:14:59.:15:03.

from it. To interviews by Cabinet ministers, they said it would not be

:15:04.:15:06.

made public on it is just a consultation. Amber Road must be

:15:07.:15:10.

feeling very sensitive about this at the moment. The appalling on this,

:15:11.:15:16.

even though many in the establishment say it is a disgrace,

:15:17.:15:21.

an essay was written by Cameron's former adviser, going after Theresa

:15:22.:15:27.

May and Amber Road strongly, the polling is 6-4 in favour of a policy

:15:28.:15:32.

of naming and shaming, so there is a disconnect between the metropolitan

:15:33.:15:39.

elite and what people... There always is, about everything. The

:15:40.:15:45.

size of the gap is remarkable. They will no longer be the naming and

:15:46.:15:49.

shaming, but the data will still be collected, because the argument is

:15:50.:15:53.

you can then see where the skills gap is and train people in this

:15:54.:15:56.

country to fill it. How acceptable but that the? I agree that the

:15:57.:16:04.

skills issue is a massive issue for the British economy. But don't

:16:05.:16:09.

forget the significance of the public relations disaster that would

:16:10.:16:14.

unfold if Britain's reputation hitherto as a place that companies

:16:15.:16:17.

can come and do business that is globalised, and internationalist, is

:16:18.:16:24.

copper mines by a policy that is prejudicial to that. It is Sunday,

:16:25.:16:31.

we are back again at 11:30pm. If you would like to make a comment on
