I will be talking to the celebrated Irish novelist John Banville about

:00:00.:00:00.

his memoir in Dublin. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:12.

to what the papers will be With me are the broadcaster,

:00:13.:00:16.

John Stapleton and the former Conservative Employment minister,

:00:17.:00:19.

Esther McVey. A few people say they are always on

:00:20.:00:33.

together. It has happened quite a lot.

:00:34.:00:34.

The Financial Times which says the government's

:00:35.:00:37.

considering paying the EU billions of pounds to retain Single Market

:00:38.:00:39.

The Guardian also leads with Brexit - it reports fears by Ireland

:00:40.:00:44.

of a looming economic crisis on both sides of the border.

:00:45.:00:47.

The Express says that pro-Remain MPs are plotting to halt a full exit

:00:48.:00:50.

A similar lead for the Telegraph - this time the Chancellor Philip

:00:51.:00:58.

Hammond is accused of trying to 'undermine Brexit' by 'arguing

:00:59.:01:00.

The Sun's top story is on so-called SAS 'mercy killing' -

:01:01.:01:07.

it reports Prince Harry has described a probe as a witch hunt.

:01:08.:01:11.

The Mirror splashes on the search for missing toddler Ben Needham -

:01:12.:01:14.

it shows his grieving mother and sister and the police search

:01:15.:01:17.

The Metro reports claims by a charity that seven out

:01:18.:01:23.

of ten tenants are living in damp or infested homes.

:01:24.:01:27.

Slightly different figures in the Eye -

:01:28.:01:29.

which says that 40% of homes are below an acceptable

:01:30.:01:32.

The Financial Times, we could go mad. It has everything. Kaplan looks

:01:33.:01:45.

at paying billions to keep single market access for the city. It is a

:01:46.:01:54.

difficult balancing act to get it right to make sure we have access we

:01:55.:02:00.

need whilst satisfying what people think they want from Brexit. This is

:02:01.:02:08.

the FT so the financiers, you hear bankers are pushing the government

:02:09.:02:12.

to find a way for their sector to keep as many passport rights as

:02:13.:02:18.

possible so whilst I understand that, of course they would, it is

:02:19.:02:23.

their sector and employs a lot of people in the country, 11% GDP so

:02:24.:02:28.

they are looking at what is the best way they can support them but the

:02:29.:02:32.

same time the government has to weigh up so for people who are

:02:33.:02:38.

producers, exporters, for them with the pound going lower it is working

:02:39.:02:42.

for them and if you look at what Mervyn King says he was more

:02:43.:02:50.

interested in industry then now... Mark Carney is a Goldman Sachs

:02:51.:02:57.

ex-employee and looking at finances, he says look at it in the 360, we

:02:58.:03:03.

are seeing a boom for exporters producers and it up. It is more

:03:04.:03:10.

evidence that they will not be as simple as we were led to believe.

:03:11.:03:16.

Many people voted let's leave that we do not pay billions of pounds but

:03:17.:03:21.

we may have to continue to pay billions. This is a push from the

:03:22.:03:26.

banking sector. It says you have to listen to the silences from Theresa

:03:27.:03:31.

May. Theresa has been careful not to rule this out, you have to listen

:03:32.:03:38.

carefully to the silences. The point I would make is in addition to this

:03:39.:03:44.

we are learning many people would like to control immigration but it

:03:45.:03:51.

may be that in the future EU workers are allowed in if they get a Visa

:03:52.:03:55.

and there may be special concessions without whom... It is not as

:03:56.:04:05.

clear-cut. It was about control so letting in people you want to let in

:04:06.:04:09.

so if that is highly qualified engineers or bankers, that is what

:04:10.:04:13.

we want, not letting in anybody through freedom of movement and

:04:14.:04:18.

Theresa May is right to look at all of the options on the table and

:04:19.:04:26.

choose what is best the UK. You know these people better than she or I,

:04:27.:04:31.

will Philip Hammond survive because he is having second thoughts and his

:04:32.:04:35.

Chancellor of the Exchequer and is lukewarm about the proposals. I hope

:04:36.:04:42.

so because weather in the Cabinet or around a business board, you need

:04:43.:04:45.

different people are challenging you, you do not want an echo and

:04:46.:04:50.

everybody agreeing so for him coming forward with these cautionary tales

:04:51.:04:55.

and backing up another sector, it is important. As long as people

:04:56.:04:59.

understand what the country voted for. She is the cat s mother. That

:05:00.:05:04.

is what I was told. Clegg and his cronies scorn for

:05:05.:05:25.

fury, trying to keep Britain shackled to the EU, contempt for

:05:26.:05:29.

democracy. This is nothing new about this, we have known for a long time

:05:30.:05:35.

people will do all they can to delay and frustrate our departure from the

:05:36.:05:39.

European Union. This is a reflection of that and whether they will

:05:40.:05:46.

succeed is another issue. There has been a large cohort of people who

:05:47.:05:51.

did not want it to happen whether they call it the establishment or

:05:52.:05:56.

the media or Nick Clegg or whoever. But listen to their views, that is

:05:57.:06:00.

important but most importantly listen to the views of the voting

:06:01.:06:06.

public and the express said 99% of people on their poll said they would

:06:07.:06:10.

be furious if Brexit was blocked and that is what they need to look at,

:06:11.:06:16.

Mr Clegg! The Guardian. I will carry on. It is your show! The plan for no

:06:17.:06:26.

bomb zone in Syria ends in failure. Talks to try to make some progress

:06:27.:06:34.

on what is happening in Syria and a which is under bombardment, quarter

:06:35.:06:37.

of a million in the east of the city living in dire conditions. They

:06:38.:06:43.

started off in Lausanne and now London, what has gone wrong? I watch

:06:44.:06:50.

the news and saw Mr Kerry and Boris emerge and I felt despair. Not to

:06:51.:06:57.

criticise their sterling efforts but they look like a couple of people

:06:58.:07:01.

who have run out of options. I cannot blame them, Kerry has worked

:07:02.:07:06.

tirelessly to get a solution to this appalling situation and I do not

:07:07.:07:11.

know what you do. Some will favour military action, Kerry might but few

:07:12.:07:15.

others will at this stage and I feel, it is shameful that we are

:07:16.:07:21.

sitting here, I include us, the media, isn't there more we could do,

:07:22.:07:26.

I know we reported all the time but there is so much horror and kids and

:07:27.:07:33.

women being killed and bombarded everyday, as the media, are we doing

:07:34.:07:37.

our job to convey the horror of this, it needs Bob Geldof, not to

:07:38.:07:42.

raise money but raise awareness of what is happening. Quarter of a

:07:43.:07:47.

million people are being slaughtered. We do not show the

:07:48.:07:50.

worst pictures, I wonder if it would make a difference. We have standards

:07:51.:07:56.

preventing us sharing the worst of pictures,... The media has done a

:07:57.:08:01.

good job in showing what is going on and the words from Boris Johnson

:08:02.:08:07.

here, there was a lack of political appetite to put it mildly, people do

:08:08.:08:12.

not want to go to war or get into a situation so they have tried and

:08:13.:08:18.

they are looking at further sanctions, I thought Boris s idea of

:08:19.:08:24.

a no bomb zone, not a no-fly zone but a no bomb zone, should they bomb

:08:25.:08:30.

hospitals, schools, kids, then we will look at what we would bomb in

:08:31.:08:34.

return so you will say, we will bomb... If they take off from this

:08:35.:08:40.

airstrip to bomb, it would be the airstrip that is bombed and the

:08:41.:08:45.

radar centres if that is what they do. But that could escalate into

:08:46.:08:50.

something more horrific. But if you are looking at things to stop

:08:51.:08:56.

250,000 people being subjected to nonstop terrorise a she, brutality,

:08:57.:09:02.

death and psychological mind games, I thought his no bomb zone is a good

:09:03.:09:09.

way forward. I do not knock him for that but I feel despair. Angela

:09:10.:09:15.

Merkel says she said she cannot persuade her allies so nobody wants

:09:16.:09:21.

to get involved. Looking at the Metro and housing in this country.

:09:22.:09:27.

For intent homes are below the living standards could billions in

:09:28.:09:30.

cramped and unaffordable housing. This is a report from shelter, the

:09:31.:09:38.

housing charity, where are the standards coming from? It is the

:09:39.:09:43.

question we asked one we saw the brief on this story. The standards

:09:44.:09:49.

set by shelter and it's us Morrie and they have developed a living

:09:50.:09:53.

homes standard through a series of workshops and surveys with the

:09:54.:09:59.

public -- IPSA last Morrie. They have set the standard like a living

:10:00.:10:04.

homes standard and it is on that basis they come up with these

:10:05.:10:08.

figures. Both of us would be happier if we knew more about the criteria

:10:09.:10:12.

they set. It sounds as scandalous and horrendous,... It is the way you

:10:13.:10:18.

guarantee getting a front-page publicity. For a good cause.

:10:19.:10:28.

Generation exploited, it says 70% of tenants are getting a bad deal. And

:10:29.:10:33.

whilst that is really important you look into that and see what you're

:10:34.:10:37.

doing, it seems because the terms have used were terms that we used a

:10:38.:10:44.

couple of years ago, a 30 degrees campaign so it is a campaign, a way

:10:45.:10:49.

to get you on the front pages but we do have laws and standards by which

:10:50.:10:54.

you have to adhere to cannot read out homes like that so it'll be

:10:55.:10:59.

interesting to see where this goes but then, job done. We are talking

:11:00.:11:05.

about it and it is raising concerns. And they are quite legitimate. The

:11:06.:11:09.

Daily Telegraph, the picture story is should Shami Chakrabarti... She

:11:10.:11:18.

is the shadow Attorney General facing MPs questions over the timing

:11:19.:11:23.

of her peerage. The questions are did she know she was getting that

:11:24.:11:27.

and is that while there was a whitewash on the report she was

:11:28.:11:31.

doing into labour about anti-Semitism and to be fair this is

:11:32.:11:39.

a lady who did have high standing in society, a lady who many people

:11:40.:11:42.

would have looked up to but this whole thing looks very shifty, very

:11:43.:11:50.

shady, she has been bought off by a peerage and a position, she is

:11:51.:11:56.

shadow Attorney General in Corbyn s government and the report which was

:11:57.:12:02.

a whitewash another Home Affairs Select Committee yesterday came out

:12:03.:12:07.

with a report criticising Corbyn over institutional anti-Semitism. In

:12:08.:12:16.

fairness, Shami Chakrabarti, I know her, I have nothing but the highest

:12:17.:12:20.

regard for her respect for her, she is a terrifically lady. But we do

:12:21.:12:27.

not know she has been bought off. She could have had a peerage at any

:12:28.:12:30.

time because she has done so much with human rights... The timing is

:12:31.:12:38.

not good. What happened was she did not answer the questions to Keith

:12:39.:12:48.

Vaz... She never did. I'm afraid when the select committee asking

:12:49.:12:52.

questions, you do not say, you could've heard an interview. You

:12:53.:12:56.

answer them and the whole timing of this and she needs to start

:12:57.:13:00.

answering questions instead of saying, I'm not around to comment.

:13:01.:13:08.

Why was it a whitewash as everyone says? The FT, Trump escalate US

:13:09.:13:16.

election rigging claims as Clinton structures poll lead. This was doing

:13:17.:13:20.

the rounds yesterday that he has returned to this theme and it is not

:13:21.:13:24.

just the media but he says polling stations. I would love more detail

:13:25.:13:29.

of what is alleging because it sounds like the last refuge of a

:13:30.:13:34.

scoundrel. Blame the media for everything and say it is rigged. It

:13:35.:13:42.

sounds like a man who may know he is losing, 11% behind. He is for %

:13:43.:13:49.

behind on the ABC Washington post however when you say that, when you

:13:50.:13:54.

say the polling stations, what we mean, postal voting, people going

:13:55.:14:05.

in? Bribery. Rudy Giuliani eluded it may be deceased polling cards people

:14:06.:14:11.

have voted on and what is happening. But what we are doing is smearing

:14:12.:14:18.

the whole of the electoral process. If anyone takes him seriously. There

:14:19.:14:25.

was a big percentage so if the house 43% of the people going to vote for

:14:26.:14:30.

him, should Clinton win, it is a lot of people you have agitated to say

:14:31.:14:34.

this was not a true result. I would like more detail. There was no legal

:14:35.:14:42.

challenge to back up what he says. He suggests... Within 24 hours he

:14:43.:14:46.

suggested they should have drug tests. Suggested she is high on

:14:47.:14:52.

drugs. She has been ill. She might be on drugs. Saying she was pumped

:14:53.:14:59.

up at the start of the debate but she was running out of steam towards

:15:00.:15:05.

the end. We all know how that feels, I stuck the paper review all pumped

:15:06.:15:11.

up. Run out of steam. You have another one yet. Esther, John and

:15:12.:15:18.

the cat s mother will be back at 11:30pm. Cannot wait. Coming next,

:15:19.:15:21.

Meet The Author. John Banville developed as a young
