We are joined tonight by Lucy Fisher. We are also joined by Pete

:00:22.:00:33.

editor. Let's have a look at some of the front pages. We start with the

:00:34.:00:42.

Daily Telegraph. It leads with a story about migrants, saying the

:00:43.:00:45.

Home Office is failing to verify whether child refugees have family

:00:46.:00:49.

members in the UK able to look after them before they are brought here

:00:50.:00:55.

from Calais. The mirror has Philip Green being called a spiv and

:00:56.:00:59.

bounded by MPs who are recommending he lose his knighthood. The ices

:01:00.:01:05.

Philip Green is coming under a sustained attack following the

:01:06.:01:09.

collapse of BHS. According to the Guardian, ministers have ordered a

:01:10.:01:13.

crackdown on companies that use a large number of self-employed or

:01:14.:01:18.

agency workers. And the express leads with a health story, warning

:01:19.:01:24.

two soft drinks a day doubles the risk of diabetes. We will start with

:01:25.:01:28.

the Daily Telegraph. It dedicates most of his front-page to that

:01:29.:01:36.

picture of the fleet, the frigate, the aircraft carrier from Russia,

:01:37.:01:40.

making its way into British waters and heading to Syria. It looks like

:01:41.:01:45.

a photo from World War II in colour. We rarely see pictures like that on

:01:46.:01:50.

the front page. May's called to punish Russia over Syria is the

:01:51.:01:54.

headline. This is Theresa May under pressure. She is in Brussels at the

:01:55.:02:00.

moment with 27 other member states and is leading the call with France

:02:01.:02:05.

to put further pressure on Vladimir Putin. It might be a nice break from

:02:06.:02:13.

talking about Brexit for her. But interesting, Austria has come out

:02:14.:02:16.

and says it does not agree with that tactic, to put sand shines on Putin,

:02:17.:02:21.

but the Telegraph saying Number 10 sources are saying Theresa May was

:02:22.:02:32.

to push for war crime charges. We heard from our correspondents saying

:02:33.:02:38.

this is a bold and powerful strong message to Theresa May another

:02:39.:02:40.

European leaders that they are not doing enough on Syria to bring the

:02:41.:02:44.

conflict to an end and here is Russia doing what is needed. I don't

:02:45.:02:50.

think Vladimir Putin cares what Theresa May or anyone else in Europe

:02:51.:02:54.

says. This is an incredible statement to send the ships. They

:02:55.:02:57.

are joining eight others who are off the coast of Syria. They have been

:02:58.:03:02.

fully engaged in this war. Evidently, they are not needed.

:03:03.:03:08.

Putin is very good at statements and making symbolic gestures. This is a

:03:09.:03:13.

very... He will like this, that this is on the front pages. This plays to

:03:14.:03:18.

his whole propaganda war and the sense that Russia is almost already

:03:19.:03:24.

bought the West. He is fearless of talks of sanctions and war crimes?

:03:25.:03:31.

Russia has come under such economic pressure but at the same time, this

:03:32.:03:35.

nationalism plays very well with him home. His statements get an

:03:36.:03:40.

international front pages and that is helpful to him. Meanwhile, Trump

:03:41.:03:48.

making the front pages and the UK. This is the latest in a long line of

:03:49.:03:53.

allegations against Donald Trump, that he does seem to be able to

:03:54.:03:57.

shrug them off. I do not know if that is right. I think you will lose

:03:58.:04:04.

this election. This is the tenth woman. Tearfully today, she

:04:05.:04:08.

described allegedly Donald Trump groping her as she was waiting for a

:04:09.:04:14.

car at the US Open in 1919 eight. For this particular event an

:04:15.:04:19.

allegation change that much? I do not think so. There has not been a

:04:20.:04:23.

presidential candidate in modern US history who has come back from the

:04:24.:04:28.

deficit he is facing. What did the US debate last night tell us about

:04:29.:04:33.

Donald Trump's popularity? You think these allegations plus some of the

:04:34.:04:37.

things he has been saying are losing him support? I do. The real question

:04:38.:04:45.

now is what becomes of the Republican party and how they

:04:46.:04:51.

survive this. It is down the ticket as they say with the senators and

:04:52.:04:55.

members of the House of Representatives. They are deeply

:04:56.:04:58.

worried that Donald Trump will pull them down with him. If it was an

:04:59.:05:06.

election here and the Prime Minister candidate for ten women accusing him

:05:07.:05:11.

of sexual harassment, they would not survive, with the? He does seem to

:05:12.:05:19.

just keep going. These are strange times in the West and Europe. Brexit

:05:20.:05:25.

we saw post-truth politics, some people said with figures being flung

:05:26.:05:29.

around, some of the campaigns were weeping. It makes me wonder whether

:05:30.:05:35.

further down the line in the UK, whether we could see some kind of

:05:36.:05:43.

shock jock celebrity. The trouble with the polls we are told though is

:05:44.:05:47.

that there are a lot of sign old Donald Trump supporters as well who

:05:48.:05:51.

do not want to publicly admit that they are supporting him and will

:05:52.:05:55.

vote for him. How reliable are these polls? I am not sure the other

:05:56.:06:00.

silent. Donald Trump supporters are pretty vocal. What he has done this

:06:01.:06:07.

push away classic swing voters, suburban women, white college

:06:08.:06:12.

educated voters, who are the key people he needs to attract. What

:06:13.:06:25.

about the undecideds? The process is underway. It is possible he has lost

:06:26.:06:31.

the election. It has changed America though. It must be interesting for

:06:32.:06:35.

you to see how American politics has changed. I wonder what happens.

:06:36.:06:40.

Yesterday in the debate, Donald Trump seemed to almost seize it when

:06:41.:06:45.

he said the Hillary, lots of luck in dealing with terrorism down the

:06:46.:06:49.

line, but even if he loses, this is ramping up of the idea the election

:06:50.:06:53.

has been raped, there is dirty work behind the scenes, that will be a

:06:54.:06:58.

big problem going forward. It will be an interesting night. Let's move

:06:59.:07:06.

on to the daily Mirror, one of the number of papers reporting on the

:07:07.:07:10.

overwhelming support of MPs to strip Philip Green of his knighthood. This

:07:11.:07:19.

is a Philip Green, who was roasted today in the House of Commons. It

:07:20.:07:25.

was a shooting gallery is MPs from all parties took pot shots at him.

:07:26.:07:31.

It was pretty brutal. He had no choice but to watch from afar.

:07:32.:07:37.

According to our business unit, he was actually watching the whole

:07:38.:07:40.

thing and felt frustrated that some of the things that were said by MPs,

:07:41.:07:46.

he felt were defamatory, but there was nothing he could do about that.

:07:47.:07:51.

Inside the Commons, MPs have immunity to say what they like. Some

:07:52.:07:55.

of the descriptions were extraordinary. Compared to Napoleon,

:07:56.:08:03.

Robert Maxwell. But I think people are angry and there is a lot of

:08:04.:08:07.

suspicion that MPs are moving to try to back into a corner these pension

:08:08.:08:14.

deficits missing from BHS pension pots, as negotiations come to a

:08:15.:08:18.

close, whether the can put into a corner to whip out his cheque-book.

:08:19.:08:24.

There are other deficits another pension pots, though. It was a sign

:08:25.:08:32.

of The Times as well. He is a public figure. He lived the life of the

:08:33.:08:38.

billionaire. There may be tarring and feathering of Sir Philip Green

:08:39.:08:44.

but that is the consequence I think of living in the red top lose. The

:08:45.:08:55.

Guardian reported about young people being brought over from the jungle.

:08:56.:09:12.

Again, the responsibility of whom? The jungle being deconstructed and

:09:13.:09:15.

fears about what will happen to many of the migrants. He seemed to be

:09:16.:09:25.

making conciliatory noises over the summer, saying, let's grant Britain

:09:26.:09:30.

are quick divorce. You would think there is an election on! It is

:09:31.:09:37.

interesting now, he is saying, the idea that the UK's board begins in

:09:38.:09:43.

France, that will have to be renegotiated after Brexit. A lot of

:09:44.:09:46.

charities and aid agencies operating in areas like Calais to complain

:09:47.:09:54.

about the political rhetoric during election, the often migrants pay

:09:55.:09:57.

heavy prices for a general election in the country. He may be doing what

:09:58.:10:05.

American political candidates to, which is the view to the right

:10:06.:10:12.

before veering back to the centre. Still a lot of newspapers reporting

:10:13.:10:17.

on the fact that some of the children do not appear to be

:10:18.:10:20.

children or just about children as well. Campaign group saying, some of

:10:21.:10:26.

these young people have been children from the moment they left

:10:27.:10:33.

places like Afghanistan. Having walked all that way, terrible tales

:10:34.:10:37.

of what has happened or these arduous perilous journeys they have

:10:38.:10:41.

been none. The computer software that some newspapers are employing

:10:42.:10:48.

to the dues the ages of children, you cannot tell when children have

:10:49.:10:51.

been exposed to the elements, trying to get to where they are now,

:10:52.:10:57.

whether it would age anyone. It shows how hugely contentious the

:10:58.:11:05.

issue of migration is though. Could Scotland be an independent country?

:11:06.:11:10.

Another question for Theresa May! This one will not go away and Nicola

:11:11.:11:17.

Sturgeon has drafted a new bill for another referendum, a second

:11:18.:11:21.

referendum. This is as a result of the Brexit boat. She's saying, we

:11:22.:11:26.

did not vote for this in Scotland, we have a clear mandate to push for

:11:27.:11:30.

independence again if Brexit happened. Brexit happened. She is

:11:31.:11:36.

not saying she will do this. She has always held back and she will use it

:11:37.:11:40.

as leveraged to try and get as good a deal as possible at the point

:11:41.:11:47.

where Brexit happens. I don't know if you know the answer to this. Is

:11:48.:11:51.

there as much support for independence as there was at the

:11:52.:11:56.

referendum now? Is this the SNP trying to be opportunist, seeing an

:11:57.:12:01.

opportunity to keep the pressure up? There is a good deal of that. The

:12:02.:12:07.

SNP splits are beginning to show now. The comedy guru has spoken out,

:12:08.:12:13.

saying, we need to hold on, any new referendum should not be rushed. And

:12:14.:12:18.

of course, the economic case is completely different now to what it

:12:19.:12:22.

was back in September 20 14th with the collapse in North Sea oil. It

:12:23.:12:27.

was not an overwhelming result in that referendum, there was not a

:12:28.:12:34.

massive clear divide. It was 55-45. Nicola Sturgeon still has the toe

:12:35.:12:38.

the line because it was once promised as a once in a generation

:12:39.:12:41.

referendum but it does not feel like we have moved on. She is still

:12:42.:12:46.

saying she respects the result but this bill is obviously manoeuvring.

:12:47.:12:54.

Something else for Theresa May. You are confused about the next story,

:12:55.:13:01.

new diabetes health story. I confess that I thought that diet cola and

:13:02.:13:06.

diet soda had no sugar in them but that just shows what a sucker of a

:13:07.:13:10.

consumer I am! I am completely wrong, according to the express. Two

:13:11.:13:19.

soft drinks will give you type two diabetes or increase the chances of

:13:20.:13:25.

getting type two diabetes, which is alarming and wish I'd that a while

:13:26.:13:32.

ago! Some diet drinks do have sweetness in them, according to the

:13:33.:13:36.

Daily Express, but it goes to show, we do not always know exactly what

:13:37.:13:41.

is in our drinks. And food as well. We are told to read the ingredients,

:13:42.:13:46.

measure how much fat and salt is in there, but I am rarely in a

:13:47.:13:51.

supermarket, but I do not have time to read everything in it! I am a fan

:13:52.:13:58.

of the traffic light system. Mainly green, a couple of orange or red is,

:13:59.:14:04.

I think, show that in the trolley. It is difficult to know with

:14:05.:14:07.

artificial sweeteners and preservatives and different things

:14:08.:14:12.

and low-fat, low sugar products, the chemicals they replace them with are

:14:13.:14:18.

equally as bad. When it comes to beating diseases like diabetes, we

:14:19.:14:22.

have to take some responsibility for ourselves. We cannot totally rely on

:14:23.:14:27.

it. We have run out of time, thank you very much for taking us through

:14:28.:14:32.

some of tomorrow's papers. Or the front pages are online on the BBC

:14:33.:14:36.

website or you can read a detailed review of the papers. You can see us

:14:37.:14:46.

there to do with each night's addition of The Papers.

:14:47.:15:00.

It is a fine prospect for many but for some, Friday will bring the

:15:01.:15:06.

first foggy morning of the autumn season. Not everywhere but across

:15:07.:15:10.

parts of Wales and the Midlands
