days. A Syrian man being questioned on Islamic extremist terrorist


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


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


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


Senior Political Correspondent at the Telegraph, and James Lyons,


Deputy Political Editor Tomorrow's front


pages, starting with: The Metro warns that


brands like Marmite, Pot Noodle and Persil could be


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


between the supermarket The I carries Russia's condemnation


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


outside Russian embassies. The Express continues its campaign


against those trying to get the government to debate its plans


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


Brexit voters. The Daily Mail says the Prime


Minister has warned MPs to respect the decision of Brexit.


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


rape allegations has more than doubled in the last five years


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


The Times leads with a leaked report on migrant numbers.


The Mirror reports that the Care Quality Commission is warning that


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


collapse. Starting with Marmite. Worried?


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


of saying very little about something that everybody has a stake


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


without revealing so much that Brussels thinks they will get an


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


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


management issue here. There are probably 20 Eurosceptics who will


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


technical. But the government was running scared because they knew


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


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


pro-euro Conservatives working together could trigger a vote on


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


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


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


and the government's argument positions on cutting net migration


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


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


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


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


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


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


analysis to say that only 1% of international students overstay


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


highlighting Phil claims from Migration Watch, claiming that


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


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


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


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


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


bringing migration down underneath 100,000 looks really difficult to


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


has left. Apparently he was saying everything


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


starts to come
