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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are the broadcaster and writer, Natalie Haynes,

:00:19.:00:21.

and Rob Merrick, Deputy Political Editor of The Independent.

:00:22.:00:28.

Let's have a look at some of the front pages.

:00:29.:00:31.

Donald Trump's Twitter tirade tops the front page

:00:32.:00:32.

of the Financial Times - he targeted Paul Ryan

:00:33.:00:35.

and other senior Republicans for not supporting him.

:00:36.:00:37.

The Telegraph leads with a warning from the treasury watchdog over

:00:38.:00:40.

planned reforms to pensions introduced by ex-chancellor,

:00:41.:00:43.

George Osbourne which could end up costing the treasury

:00:44.:00:46.

The Daily Express says that it's time to Silence EU Exit Whingers -

:00:47.:00:59.

pushing for a hard Brexit deal with Brussels.

:01:00.:01:01.

The Guardian leads with the debate in Westminster today over Syria

:01:02.:01:03.

where Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson warned Russia that it risks

:01:04.:01:06.

becoming a 'pariah state' over its role in the conflict.

:01:07.:01:08.

The Mail says the government is set to go ahead with

:01:09.:01:11.

The paper called the resignation of the chief executive Ashok. -- a

:01:12.:01:25.

shock. And the Mirror devotes much

:01:26.:01:27.

of its front page to what it calls the riddle of singer Will Young's

:01:28.:01:30.

withdrawal from this year's Lots more background and analysis on

William's... Don't mock me!

:01:38.:01:43.

Natalie love strictly, and we will be discussing it. The FT, Trump

Tweet Thai raid. Hardly a day seems Tweet Thai raid. Hardly a day seems

:01:48.:01:53.

to go by when this man doesn't get on there in the middle of the night,

:01:54.:02:00.

I'm angry! He is doing it again. -- Thai raid.

:02:01.:02:03.

You sort of felt that his taunting You sort of felt that his taunting

:02:04.:02:09.

of Hillary and pretty much anybody even mildly to the left of, let's

:02:10.:02:15.

say, Attila the Hun, that was kind of a given. But now he has started

:02:16.:02:19.

turning on his own party in theory. Remember those adverts, Republican

:02:20.:02:25.

in name only? Now this looks like his candidacy is Republican in name

:02:26.:02:32.

only. Clearly they have split. He never was a Republican, was he?

:02:33.:02:39.

He used to be a Democrat and would have loved to have run as an

:02:40.:02:41.

independent. Now he has the opportunity.

:02:42.:02:46.

Even allowing for all the Republicans who have turned against

:02:47.:02:50.

because of his outrageous behaviour, lots of Republicans don't like him

:02:51.:02:52.

because they don't consider him to be Conservative. He has not got that

:02:53.:02:58.

ideology. He will have evangelical Christians

:02:59.:03:02.

flocking to his side. Mormons.

:03:03.:03:07.

We're used to Republicans attacking Democrats. Today there was only one

:03:08.:03:11.

of the residential candidate attacking, and he was a Republican.

tweets that the shackles have been taken off, we are not exceed a

moderate or restrained Donald Trump. -- not going to see.

:03:29.:03:34.

But the big picture is that he is in trouble. It appears that Hillary

:03:35.:03:38.

Clinton has had a bounce from the second debate, it looks less likely,

:03:39.:03:46.

thank goodness, that this racist, misogynist, rapist, narcissist and

:03:47.:03:50.

fantasist will be elected president. What you say?

:03:51.:03:55.

Signet -- succinctly and beautifully done.

:03:56.:03:59.

million people clearly don't give a million people clearly don't give a

monkeys, or already made up their minds. Voting has already started in

:04:05.:04:08.

a lot of the swing states. Hillary Clinton may have won this before

:04:09.:04:12.

November eight. Please let that be true. Polling

:04:13.:04:17.

experts tell us that people's decisions are made often one year

:04:18.:04:22.

before the actual election happens, and very rarely do the debates have

:04:23.:04:25.

any impact whatsoever. I think people probably turned into the

:04:26.:04:31.

first one for the theatre of it. They turned off from the second one

:04:32.:04:36.

because it feels like that narratives has run its course. He is

:04:37.:04:41.

providing his own theatre single-handedly, following his

:04:42.:04:42.

Twitter stream is enough to keep Twitter stream is enough to keep

:04:43.:04:46.

most people who are interested in him occupied. I'm not sure there is

:04:47.:04:50.

much more to be said. Rob, briefly, millions and millions

:04:51.:04:56.

of people support Donald Trump and believe that he is talking to them

:04:57.:04:59.

in a way that politicians simply have not. If, as everyone seems to

:05:00.:05:05.

suggest, and there is a long way to go, one month, he does not win,

:05:06.:05:08.

there is still a constituency at their will be looking to him for

:05:09.:05:14.

something. Yes, I'm sure we can expect

:05:15.:05:19.

allegations the election was rigged. There have been stories about

:05:20.:05:27.

Russian hacking, so I'm sure we will hear plenty of that.

:05:28.:05:33.

It is hard to see him marching on the White House. He does not feel

:05:34.:05:36.

like a revolutionary figure. It is hard to imagine him with pitchforks

:05:37.:05:39.

and everybody stomping their way towards...

:05:40.:05:46.

That is that it is the suggestion. Samsung, have you got one of their

:05:47.:05:50.

phones? No.

:05:51.:05:56.

tend to use your phone for tend to use your phone for

:05:57.:06:01.

spontaneous combustion. A brief campfire.

:06:02.:06:07.

To read the paper online. Anyway, big problem for the company, they

:06:08.:06:12.

have withdrawn this phone from the market.

:06:13.:06:18.

Yes, first they tried to manage the problem by suggesting that some

:06:19.:06:22.

people just send them back without taking this Draconian step of

:06:23.:06:28.

abandoning the model. More than $19 billion has been wiped off the

:06:29.:06:32.

company's market value because nobody will buy their phones and the

:06:33.:06:34.

people who have presumably demand their money back. The problem could

:06:35.:06:40.

be more serious than Samsung realise. Instead of the battery

:06:41.:06:46.

being the problem it is actually a problem with the technology and the

:06:47.:06:49.

process at the heart of the phone. There seems to be no way back for

:06:50.:06:55.

this model of phone and a long-term crisis for Samsung. They said this

:06:56.:06:59.

phone was going to be a killer of the iPhone.

:07:00.:07:07.

Literally. OK, the Guardian, Syria, big debate and emergency debate

:07:08.:07:11.

today. Natalie, the West and in this particular case the UK, Parliament,

:07:12.:07:16.

trying to work out how on earth that responds to the carnage, certainly

:07:17.:07:21.

in Aleppo? Yes, and I'm not entirely sure

:07:22.:07:25.

they're going to come up with an answer. I am no longer sure that

:07:26.:07:30.

there is an answer. I am not sure it's the case that they

:07:31.:07:31.

not found it, and that if they not found it, and that if they

:07:32.:07:37.

discuss it a bit longer the right answer suddenly appears. I think it

:07:38.:07:40.

may be the case that there are 2 million different, slightly better,

:07:41.:07:43.

slightly worse at equally terrible versions of the future, and I'm not

:07:44.:07:51.

sure that having a discussion about localised zones, which you are not

:07:52.:07:54.

win to get Russia to commit to, will make much difference.

:07:55.:08:00.

A lot of hand-wringing, Rob, for a lot of people in Westminster today.

:08:01.:08:03.

The feeling seems to be that there is no good solution to this, let it

:08:04.:08:07.

play out. This is a lot of the debate and the

:08:08.:08:11.

contributions I thought were very impressive. You can tell MPs really

:08:12.:08:14.

wanted to do something and felt guilty that nothing has been done,

:08:15.:08:18.

nothing of consequence. Five years!

:08:19.:08:21.

But that sort of statement only gets But that sort of statement only gets

:08:22.:08:25.

you so far, and I think in the end Boris Johnson, the Foreign

:08:26.:08:28.

Secretary, what he said effectively was we're not going to world War

:08:29.:08:31.

three. That was the question that he posed, you have a no-fly zone, and

:08:32.:08:38.

means of enforcing it, potentially shooting down Russian planes and

:08:39.:08:41.

helicopters, they do not want to take that step. It did not really

:08:42.:08:47.

get us very far. While this debate was going on in the Commons today,

:08:48.:08:51.

there was a simultaneous debate in the other chamber which was about

:08:52.:08:54.

whether to bring back the royally at, and this was a really is --

:08:55.:09:01.

extraordinary and offensive juxtaposition of debate. There were

:09:02.:09:05.

just as many MPs in the second chamber as there were in the first

:09:06.:09:10.

one discussing the agony, the humanitarian disaster in Syria, and

:09:11.:09:15.

that was not good today. Bottom of the Guardian, care home

:09:16.:09:24.

closures leading to risk. Yes, the numbers are pretty terrible

:09:25.:09:30.

anyway you look at them. The profit margins at care homes, they are

:09:31.:09:34.

dropping their funding, the cut has already been cut. They are bringing

:09:35.:09:37.

in a higher minimum wage that is in a higher minimum wage that is

:09:38.:09:40.

going to make that even more of a problem. There is no point saying,

:09:41.:09:44.

exclude them from the minimum wage because that'll be fine. One in ten

:09:45.:09:49.

jobs are already being excised. There are more old people than there

:09:50.:09:53.

were, more of us are going to need care as we get older. The answer is

:09:54.:09:58.

not going to happen around a board until more money comes from

:09:59.:10:02.

somewhere, I think that's it. The Guardian has a depressing front page

:10:03.:10:07.

It is all about money, isn't it, and It is all about money, isn't it, and

:10:08.:10:10.

there just isn't the money. Thankfully we are living longer, but

:10:11.:10:16.

it is causing a huge problem. There is growing criticism of the

:10:17.:10:18.

government for spending more money on the NHS with the flashy front

:10:19.:10:24.

line services rather than the more behind-the-scenes care which is just

:10:25.:10:29.

as important in care homes. There has got to be a shift away from

:10:30.:10:34.

that. There are clearly issues with the NHS, but certainly there has got

:10:35.:10:38.

to be a shift in money to care homes to local authorities, and I would

:10:39.:10:46.

imagine that this sort of thing must be a priority for the new Prime

:10:47.:10:51.

Minister in the Autumn Statement. Front page of the Daily Telegraph,

:10:52.:11:00.

George Osborne's plan for tax relief, the suggestion is that it is

:11:01.:11:05.

going to backfire. Yes, although when you can pick it,

:11:06.:11:11.

there doesn't seem to be a new piece of information or new study which

:11:12.:11:15.

has provoked it as a response. In fact, it is the office of budget and

:11:16.:11:20.

the witty saying if you take taxes are higher earners and their

:11:21.:11:23.

contributors they will take their money elsewhere. It doesn't feel

:11:24.:11:31.

like news, exactly. I could probably have told you that the date was

:11:32.:11:34.

announced. Nothing new here, Rob.

:11:35.:11:39.

I take issue with the headline. I think the Telegraph is keen to blame

:11:40.:11:45.

the forecast that the government will lose money on pension changes.

:11:46.:11:50.

They are keen to blame that on the pension cap. If you look carefully

:11:51.:12:00.

at what this analyst is seen, the other part of the story is the

:12:01.:12:05.

pension freedoms, they will think I don't have to buy an annual tea, I

:12:06.:12:11.

can buy a Lamborghini. The fact that George Osborne increased the amount

:12:12.:12:16.

of tax you pay into your eyes makes it seem too simple to say that the

:12:17.:12:21.

pension cap will result in the government having to pay out more in

:12:22.:12:25.

time. Perhaps, if you didn't have those other freedoms, the cap will

:12:26.:12:30.

not have the effect... And they have to do something about the cap,

:12:31.:12:33.

because the amount that goes into pension tax relief has doubled. The

:12:34.:12:39.

vast majority of that goes to rich people and that is not sustainable.

:12:40.:12:43.

Look how big the headline is with Look how big the headline is with

:12:44.:12:47.

this and look how small the crisis which affects vastly more people is.

:12:48.:12:59.

The Daily Express. Finally... William Young, honour programme by

:13:00.:13:06.

the name of Strictly. He was my joint favourite. And Ed

:13:07.:13:18.

Balls. We like Ed Balls. I thought I was going to hit him but

:13:19.:13:25.

he was hilarious. Len Goodman said there was no salsa in his salsa.

:13:26.:13:33.

they did it beautifully. Lenin was a they did it beautifully. Lenin was a

:13:34.:13:41.

was shuttling from LA to hear so was shuttling from LA to hear so

:13:42.:13:45.

perhaps he was a little jet-lagged and grouchy. Will Stood up to him

:13:46.:13:56.

and it was a bit harrowing. It was like seeing your favourite cousin

:13:57.:14:01.

fighting your favourite grampa. Not that I am an expert, but is it

:14:02.:14:07.

that he is leaving soon, Len Goodman, is this his last one?

:14:08.:14:12.

I am also upset about that, thanks for bringing that up. It is

:14:13.:14:16.

harrowing! Sometimes it is the only consolation I have. Remember that

:14:17.:14:21.

awful news a minute ago? This cheers me up. You will want to go to Mars,

:14:22.:14:28.

Rob, for the next series and not be there. Hell of a link! Man on Mars

:14:29.:14:34.

in 15 years, President Obama says this. Is this possible?

:14:35.:14:45.

This sort of statement triggers memories of promises to put a man on

:14:46.:14:53.

the moon by the end of the decade. I don't know the detail of the story,

:14:54.:14:56.

but there is a surprising that because Obama was suggesting the

:14:57.:15:00.

people could come back. I'll is thought that volunteering to go to

:15:01.:15:04.

Mars was that it was a one-way trip -- I always thought. The paper then

:15:05.:15:12.

makes the obvious joke that there will not be a shortage of people

:15:13.:15:14.

leaving with President Trump looming.

:15:15.:15:19.

Thank you very much. All the front pages online on the BBC website.

:15:20.:15:33.

Each night's edition of The Papers is posted on there shortly after the

:15:34.:15:36.

broadcast is finished. Thanks for watching, and by. -- goodbye.

:15:37.:15:51.

Good evening, another fine day across western
