days. A Syrian man being questioned on Islamic extremist terrorist

charges has killed himself in his prison cell in Leipzig. Any more on

:00:00.:00:00.

that and we will bring it to you. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:15.

to what the the papers will be With me are Kate McCann,

:00:16.:00:18.

Senior Political Correspondent at the Telegraph, and James Lyons,

:00:19.:00:21.

Deputy Political Editor Tomorrow's front

:00:22.:00:23.

pages, starting with: The Metro warns that

:00:24.:00:28.

brands like Marmite, Pot Noodle and Persil could be

:00:29.:00:30.

disappearing from the shelves of Tesco because of a stand-off

:00:31.:00:33.

between the supermarket The I carries Russia's condemnation

:00:34.:00:35.

of Boris Johnson's call for anti-war protestors to demonstrate

:00:36.:00:42.

outside Russian embassies. The Express continues its campaign

:00:43.:00:45.

against those trying to get the government to debate its plans

:00:46.:00:48.

for leaving the EU - it says they're plotting to betray

:00:49.:00:51.

Brexit voters. The Daily Mail says the Prime

:00:52.:01:10.

Minister has warned MPs to respect the decision of Brexit.

:01:11.:01:14.

The Guardian points to figures that show that the number of recorded

:01:15.:01:17.

rape allegations has more than doubled in the last five years

:01:18.:01:19.

- while the number of convictions has barely risen in the same period.

:01:20.:01:25.

The Times leads with a leaked report on migrant numbers.

:01:26.:01:35.

The Mirror reports that the Care Quality Commission is warning that

:01:36.:01:39.

what it calls chronic underfunding has left the NHS on the brink of

:01:40.:01:42.

collapse. Starting with Marmite. Worried?

:01:43.:01:48.

These are the stories that divide the nation! Kate, you hate Marmite.

:01:49.:01:58.

This is a cracking story, though. It will probably be the first time that

:01:59.:02:03.

people like us are going to feel the impact of the Brexit vote. This is a

:02:04.:02:09.

story about how Tesco and Unilever, one of the biggest suppliers of

:02:10.:02:15.

Marmite, personal, Ben Jerry's, are in a price war. Unilever are

:02:16.:02:21.

saying that it is costing us more to bring you these products, so we will

:02:22.:02:26.

charge you more. Tesco is saying, we will not pay that. They have taken

:02:27.:02:31.

these products down. There is a stand over who to -- over who foots

:02:32.:02:37.

the bill for the weak pound, because of the Brexit vote. The value of

:02:38.:02:42.

sterling has fallen significantly. David Davis said today in the House

:02:43.:02:49.

of Commons today, and the pound fell as he stood up and went up when he

:02:50.:02:56.

sat down. Hard Brexit, soft Brexit, subsidiarity... That is nonsense.

:02:57.:03:00.

This is what Brexit boils down to for a lot of people. It will hammer

:03:01.:03:07.

home what's going on. We've seen the holiday season come and go, but I'm

:03:08.:03:11.

sure that when people go abroad again, that will bring home the

:03:12.:03:16.

impact Brexit has had on the pound. This is a very tangible thing for

:03:17.:03:21.

people who are trying to do their shopping online. I know you are very

:03:22.:03:31.

worried because you use Dove soap! And you use links! Everybody knows

:03:32.:03:39.

what Marmite is and what personal is. If you suddenly find you have to

:03:40.:03:43.

pay more for your weekly shop, that's something you don't want to

:03:44.:03:47.

do. I know what John Redwood would say if he was sitting at this desk.

:03:48.:03:56.

He probably would say that it makes exports cheaper, exports can lead to

:03:57.:03:59.

growth and growth means much better income. Yes but the days when we

:04:00.:04:07.

simply made things and exported things whole have frankly gone. If

:04:08.:04:14.

you look at the areas of real value, the aerospace industry, for example.

:04:15.:04:18.

It's coming from all over Europe, bits go out, assembly here and

:04:19.:04:25.

there, so it's not as simple as it once was. You have to hope there's a

:04:26.:04:31.

dividend there, but at the same time, many companies looking to

:04:32.:04:35.

export are facing very uncertain times. They don't know whether they

:04:36.:04:39.

are going to have to face tariffs to export to Europe. Firms like Nissan

:04:40.:04:46.

in the north-east are the deciding whether they are going to make a new

:04:47.:04:51.

line of cars in Britain or abroad. What do they think? Did they know

:04:52.:04:54.

whether or not they are going to have to pay tariffs to export from

:04:55.:05:02.

Britain to Europe. So that is why the problem is there. Conservative

:05:03.:05:08.

ex-ministers warn of Brexit risks. A string of senior Conservatives have

:05:09.:05:14.

warned that Theresa May's Brexit strategy is risking the economy.

:05:15.:05:18.

They suggest we've got to have seriously good access to the single

:05:19.:05:22.

market, and any suggestion that we don't have that is going to blow

:05:23.:05:27.

everything apart. This is what happens when you pursue a strategy

:05:28.:05:31.

of saying very little about something that everybody has a stake

:05:32.:05:37.

in. She says it's unwise for bargaining and policy-making reasons

:05:38.:05:41.

to talk about what Brexit will look like this country. That may be

:05:42.:05:46.

sensible, but a vacuum results from that, and somebody will fill it. But

:05:47.:05:52.

do they know what wrecks it looks like? I think they are starting to

:05:53.:05:56.

have a better idea. That what it looks like in reality is not it,

:05:57.:06:02.

it's what people think it means for them. In the House of Commons today,

:06:03.:06:07.

several former ministers were lying in -- laying into the Prime

:06:08.:06:12.

Minister, going against her and each other, about what the future holds

:06:13.:06:19.

for this country. That's problematic for Theresa May, because while she

:06:20.:06:24.

tries to hold together a negotiating position, she's also got to hold her

:06:25.:06:30.

party together, which is a tricky line to walk. She's got to figure

:06:31.:06:35.

out how to keep them happy with some information to keep them happy,

:06:36.:06:38.

without revealing so much that Brussels thinks they will get an

:06:39.:06:42.

easy ride. That's a difficult line to walk. It's not just that she

:06:43.:06:48.

wants to get the best possible deal for Britain, there is a party

:06:49.:06:53.

management issue here. There are probably 20 Eurosceptics who will

:06:54.:06:58.

not be happy with what ever she achieves, and they are probably 20

:06:59.:07:03.

people at the other end of the party who will not be happy if we leave

:07:04.:07:08.

the EU. So she is between a rock and a hard place with such a small

:07:09.:07:13.

majority. You can see the bitterness that is coming. Claire Perry said

:07:14.:07:18.

today that it's not all about putting your national interest

:07:19.:07:25.

first. Some people are putting their narrow ideological interests first.

:07:26.:07:29.

Two sides are lining up within the Conservative Party. What happened in

:07:30.:07:32.

the House of Commons today was that Labour put down a motion saying

:07:33.:07:36.

there needed to be proper scrutiny and an amendment. All very

:07:37.:07:42.

technical. But the government was running scared because they knew

:07:43.:07:46.

they didn't have the votes, and if the amendment had gone to a vote,

:07:47.:07:50.

they wouldn't have had a majority. That suggests to me that Labour and

:07:51.:07:55.

pro-euro Conservatives working together could trigger a vote on

:07:56.:08:03.

Brexit. That is why they want a vote in the first place, to possibly

:08:04.:08:06.

bring the government down. Your paper, Kate. Ministers have reports

:08:07.:08:14.

on migrant student numbers. This is interesting. One of Theresa May's

:08:15.:08:19.

and the government's argument positions on cutting net migration

:08:20.:08:24.

has always been that if we reduce the numbers of bogus colleges,

:08:25.:08:29.

prevent students overstaying their Visa when they've come to study

:08:30.:08:33.

here, we will be able to lower those numbers and meet our target, or go

:08:34.:08:39.

some way towards meeting them. But this is a Home Office reports which

:08:40.:08:45.

the Times has got hold of, actually not my paper. You wish it was your

:08:46.:08:53.

paper! I'm very happy with my paper. The Home Office has done some

:08:54.:08:57.

analysis to say that only 1% of international students overstay

:08:58.:09:02.

their Visa, which it amounts to a tiny number. Unsurprisingly, the

:09:03.:09:07.

Times is saying the Home Office didn't want to release these

:09:08.:09:11.

figures, and they are saying it's a piece of work that not been

:09:12.:09:16.

completed. This says that quite a lot of debate about migration and

:09:17.:09:19.

the number of people coming into this country is less about the

:09:20.:09:24.

reality of the numbers and more about how people feel and about

:09:25.:09:28.

perception. Theresa May must have been aware that the numbers have

:09:29.:09:33.

been quite small. That cannot be a surprise to her as she worked at the

:09:34.:09:39.

Home Office for a long time. So how serious was the government's

:09:40.:09:43.

position on this issue. So what if the game with this? They are

:09:44.:09:51.

highlighting Phil claims from Migration Watch, claiming that

:09:52.:09:54.

100,000 foreign students vanished every year. But when you say the

:09:55.:10:01.

game, what do you mean? On the part of Theresa May, who was Home

:10:02.:10:08.

Secretary, and who knew this. I think any number she could get to

:10:09.:10:12.

bring down she would want to bring down. The persistent problem with

:10:13.:10:16.

this rather rash pledge that David Cameron made that in the day about

:10:17.:10:22.

bringing migration down underneath 100,000 looks really difficult to

:10:23.:10:27.

do. Personally, I think they would be well placed to just dump the

:10:28.:10:33.

target. That said, you cannot deny that a lot of what Brexit was about

:10:34.:10:43.

was about concerns over immigration. The eye, cold War warning as Russia

:10:44.:10:48.

hits back at Britain. Russia condemns Boris Johnson's coffer

:10:49.:10:53.

protest over Syria. Did Boris Johnson step out of line when he

:10:54.:11:02.

encouraged a protest outside the Russian Embassy? It's not the sort

:11:03.:11:07.

of language we are used to hearing from Foreign Secretary 's. Usually a

:11:08.:11:12.

more measured, quiet word in private. You can maybe understand,

:11:13.:11:19.

given some of the pictures on some of the front pages tonight coming

:11:20.:11:25.

out of Aleppo why he might be using every means within his power to try

:11:26.:11:31.

to hammer home to the Russians, but I'm not really sure they are

:11:32.:11:36.

listening. Was he making a dig at the Labour Party and suggesting that

:11:37.:11:41.

Jeremy Corbyn spends all his time with the Stop the War Coalition, but

:11:42.:11:48.

on this particular subject, where is the Stop the War Coalition? I think

:11:49.:11:53.

this was a Boris Johnson loose cannon moment in the House of

:11:54.:11:56.

Commons rather than a diplomatic position. He was asked by a Labour

:11:57.:12:02.

MP whether it would be a good idea to have protests outside Russian

:12:03.:12:08.

embassies, and he said, yes. I think he was trying to dig at Jeremy

:12:09.:12:16.

Corbyn and make a political point. Labour under Jeremy Corbyn is

:12:17.:12:19.

incredibly weak on this. We have a story about America today, a

:12:20.:12:26.

spokesman very upset made by Jeremy Corbyn's head of communications

:12:27.:12:30.

effectively accusing America of being akin to Russia in Syria. The

:12:31.:12:35.

Americans are very upset by that. They say they do everything to avoid

:12:36.:12:40.

civilian casualties and they don't believe Russia does the same. This

:12:41.:12:46.

is going to be ongoing. It is above the political toing and froing above

:12:47.:12:51.

the fray. We ought to be looking at the seriousness of this issue and

:12:52.:12:55.

the problem in Aleppo, rather than talking about whether Boris Johnson

:12:56.:13:05.

made a bit of a gas or not. Finally, Will Young has left strictly. This

:13:06.:13:13.

story is about him having a battle with post-traumatic stress disorder.

:13:14.:13:17.

Kate is the expert here. That's why I started with you! We were talking

:13:18.:13:26.

about this before we came on. Will Young hasn't really explained why he

:13:27.:13:32.

has left. Apparently he was saying everything

:13:33.:13:37.

was fine and dandy this morning. The Metro and the Mirror have reported

:13:38.:13:42.

he's had problems with anxiety, and in the past he's talked about how he

:13:43.:13:47.

may have felt he had post-traumatic stress disorder because of the

:13:48.:13:51.

pressure of coming out as gay, and not having talked about that for

:13:52.:13:55.

such a long period of time. He's not talked about it. He says he's

:13:56.:14:01.

perfectly happy. But he has quit strictly Come Dancing right at the

:14:02.:14:05.

beginning, and a lot of people feel that is a real shame. I'm not really

:14:06.:14:10.

sure it is post-traumatic stress disorder. On that contentious note,

:14:11.:14:17.

we will leave it there! Many thanks for that. On BBC News, all of the

:14:18.:14:23.

front pages are online on the BBC News website. It is all there for

:14:24.:14:29.

you seven days a week. You can see us there as well. With each night's

:14:30.:14:34.

addition of the papers, it is posted up there shortly after we finish.

:14:35.:14:37.

Kate and James, thank you. Goodbye. The weather is set to have a

:14:38.:14:54.

different feel through the rest of this week and into the weekend. The

:14:55.:14:58.

high-pressure relinquishes its Greek Dell word grip and low pressure

:14:59.:15:02.

starts to come

:15:03.:15:03.
