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

:00:13.:00:16.

With me are Claire Cohen, women's editor at the Daily

:00:17.:00:24.

Telegraph, and Peter Spiegel, US editor of the Financial Times.

:00:25.:00:32.

Nice to meet you. Thank you for giving up your Friday night for us.

:00:33.:00:36.

The Daily Mirror reports from the front line of the battle

:00:37.:00:40.

to push Isis out of the Iraqi city of Mosul.

:00:41.:00:42.

The Times says its investigation has revealed more than 150 police

:00:43.:00:45.

officers are under investigation for alleged sexual misconduct.

:00:46.:00:47.

The Financial Times has news of a merger between AT

:00:48.:00:49.

and Time Warner that could create the world's biggest

:00:50.:00:51.

The Daily Telegraph leads on what police say was a foiled plot

:00:52.:00:56.

Theresa May had tough words for EU leaders

:00:57.:01:00.

at her first summit in Brussels, according to the Daily Express,

:01:01.:01:03.

telling them to "grow up" and accept Brexit.

:01:04.:01:11.

The Mail features a story of a man who has been removed from the care

:01:12.:01:16.

of his mother after she brought him up as a girl. We can start with the

:01:17.:01:23.

merrier. They don't always do this but I big picture story. -- The

:01:24.:01:30.

Mirror. One mile away from Isis. Dispatches from the front line. We

:01:31.:01:35.

need to go inside to get the bulk of the story, but this is the plan to

:01:36.:01:43.

try and take back most from IES. It is going very slowly and it is a

:01:44.:01:49.

very harrowing by the photographer who is embedded with the Kurdish

:01:50.:01:53.

fighters from northern Iraq. I spent some time reporting on the Iraq war

:01:54.:02:01.

in 2003-2004 and it rings very true. Not knowing exactly what is going

:02:02.:02:05.

on. They see an explosion and they don't know where it is coming from.

:02:06.:02:12.

There are explosions. The interesting thing to me is those

:02:13.:02:16.

years with the Kurdish fighters in the north, the real story is going

:02:17.:02:21.

to be the Iraqi forces themselves, because they disintegrated when I is

:02:22.:02:25.

assured and most reporters have not been able to spend any time with

:02:26.:02:31.

Iraqi forces. We have some compelling accounts but we do not

:02:32.:02:35.

have much of what the official Iraqi forces are doing. One thing that

:02:36.:02:42.

jumped out at me is Colonel Mohammed quoted, a senior military commander,

:02:43.:02:49.

who says we are not just fighting for our own sake but for the rest of

:02:50.:02:53.

the world. He is appealing to the west to take note of their

:02:54.:02:57.

successes. He also says that when we stop here we will them everywhere.

:02:58.:03:03.

The Mirror reports this is the same terror franchise that has big

:03:04.:03:08.

destruction in Paris and Brussels. -- Paris and Britain is always in

:03:09.:03:15.

its sights. They do not know what they are up against. Up to 8000

:03:16.:03:20.

jihadis prepared to fight to the death hiding in tunnels. They have

:03:21.:03:26.

discovered the big network. There is a sense they do not know what

:03:27.:03:31.

they're up against. It is also worth mentioning the attacks. Another

:03:32.:03:37.

hundred miles away. You push them down in one place and a pop-up

:03:38.:03:44.

elsewhere. This is an effort by the Iraqis to create a pool where they

:03:45.:03:52.

gradually take back the territory. If they lose any big oil centres

:03:53.:03:58.

that would be a setback. Colonel Mohammed says this could take tissue

:03:59.:04:04.

or three months -- this could take two or three months, but I think we

:04:05.:04:09.

are in for a long slog here. It will take a long time to retake the city.

:04:10.:04:14.

Point-mac they said that they were making better progress than

:04:15.:04:16.

expected, but you cannot assume that will always be the case. It is

:04:17.:04:23.

Americans that said that. They are embedded with the fighters. Had an

:04:24.:04:27.

American casualty in the last 24 hours. Sometimes the Pentagon has

:04:28.:04:33.

some happy talk in the early stages of an operation because you move

:04:34.:04:36.

quickly until you get into the urban areas. I expect that Colonel

:04:37.:04:41.

Mohammed is probably more reliable. He is still saying some quite

:04:42.:04:48.

notable things. I guess what strikes me about is that we knew about in

:04:49.:04:54.

advance, so if we knew, I new. That is a tactical thing that the

:04:55.:05:01.

coalition has tended to do towards civilians. You do not want

:05:02.:05:05.

civilians, you need to signal to them to get into bomb shelters. You

:05:06.:05:11.

can think of it as a bad strategic move, but it is a way to try and

:05:12.:05:15.

protect civilians from war. Some of the violence they are seeing is

:05:16.:05:20.

designed to help them. The story will come out in the coming days.

:05:21.:05:24.

Point-mac we can look at The Telegraph. May box at Brexit talks

:05:25.:05:41.

in French. I know the negotiator very well for the EU. She is French.

:05:42.:05:53.

Therefore, he speaks French. He came to Brussels for the first time six

:05:54.:05:58.

years ago speaking no English. His English is better but he has

:05:59.:06:01.

requested documents are given to him in French, which is not outrageous.

:06:02.:06:07.

There has been a claim that he is demanding all detox being French,

:06:08.:06:11.

but that is not our understanding. This is a bit off an attempt by

:06:12.:06:17.

Downing Street to show that Theresa May is tough and standing up to the

:06:18.:06:23.

French, but it was always anticipated that there would be

:06:24.:06:25.

translators and ease the graduations. The two languages of

:06:26.:06:30.

the EU are French and English, the German is also one of those seldom

:06:31.:06:36.

used. I think it is a fun story but it does not hold up to scrutiny. I

:06:37.:06:40.

don't know how we would participate if it was not in French. I'm sure

:06:41.:06:46.

that whoever is involved they would want to be speaking in their own

:06:47.:06:51.

language. It is complicated. If you read down in the story it does back

:06:52.:06:57.

up what Peter said and they have denied it and have not decided what

:06:58.:07:03.

language they will use yet. I guess, ideally, he would want to talk in

:07:04.:07:07.

French, but there is no suggestion that must be the case. It is just a

:07:08.:07:12.

excuse for Toulouse are made to look strong. It says that she slapped the

:07:13.:07:18.

stone. She is saying they are immature. She's trying to rebuke the

:07:19.:07:22.

fact that Britain is on the naughty step. She has to satisfy a home

:07:23.:07:27.

audience and the 27 leaders of the EU will have to negotiate with her.

:07:28.:07:33.

It is a difficult place to be. The Europeans have been talking tough.

:07:34.:07:37.

She arrived yesterday to this discussion about Brexit. Going into

:07:38.:07:46.

the meeting yesterday, we saw the president of France and the

:07:47.:07:49.

Chancellor of Germany talking very tough on this, saying that if you

:07:50.:07:54.

want hard Brexit this will be a hard ago shisha on. It is difficult for

:07:55.:07:58.

the French because there is an election coming up and he is running

:07:59.:08:02.

against front Nash and a who are in favour of leaving the year. -- front

:08:03.:08:09.

national. They need to show their domestic audience it will be

:08:10.:08:16.

difficult. We want a smooth Brexit. We can look at The Times. Hundreds

:08:17.:08:22.

of police sex pests uncovered, they are facing tough new punishments.

:08:23.:08:26.

The suggestion this has been going on and we do not know about it. It

:08:27.:08:34.

is a shocking story. There are currently 156 sexual misconduct

:08:35.:08:37.

inquiries being carried out into police officers in England, Wales

:08:38.:08:42.

and Scotland. It suggested has been going on for a number of years. 400

:08:43.:08:46.

members of the public have made complaints in the last five years.

:08:47.:08:51.

They have just made complaints, there are other people that are not

:08:52.:08:55.

coming forward, vulnerable woman. There is no suggestion there are men

:08:56.:09:00.

involved who are being abused. Police officers abusing their power

:09:01.:09:06.

and having sexual relationships. We were talking about this before we

:09:07.:09:10.

went on, the numbers here. This disclosure comes from only one in

:09:11.:09:14.

four forces that gave the numbers to The Times, so we do not know what

:09:15.:09:22.

the fool story is. How many priests are in the UK, because 150 out of

:09:23.:09:30.

the police, but we don't know what percentage of being accused of this.

:09:31.:09:33.

I would like to know how this compares to other countries. I

:09:34.:09:38.

imagine the United States, my country, does not have a good record

:09:39.:09:42.

on that. It would be interesting to see how they stack up against other

:09:43.:09:47.

countries. Any one of these cases is too many and the numbers are quite

:09:48.:09:56.

high. We can look at the Financial Times. Hackers silence Internet on

:09:57.:09:59.

US coast with an attack on a web address service. This affected our

:10:00.:10:06.

website today. The FT and the New York Times and Twitter and other

:10:07.:10:11.

major Web services that have a server in the US. It started on the

:10:12.:10:16.

ease coast of the US and it spread to the west Coast. Even though we

:10:17.:10:22.

use this service, we had never heard of the company. They are a small

:10:23.:10:32.

company that turned what you write in to a web search into digits. It

:10:33.:10:35.

is a phone directory for the Internet. If they don't have that

:10:36.:10:40.

translation service you cannot access websites. This was clearly

:10:41.:10:45.

one of the biggest tax we have seen in recent years and they are getting

:10:46.:10:49.

worse stop they have figured out ways to do this and more

:10:50.:10:53.

sophisticated ways. We were talking to security experts who are saying

:10:54.:10:59.

they are starting to use things like refrigerators and baby monitors

:11:00.:11:03.

because they are less secure. Your baby monitor can be attacked a

:11:04.:11:10.

certain websites. Multiple, thousands of people, signing onto

:11:11.:11:16.

websites. Great opportunities and cyber security. The US to party of

:11:17.:11:25.

Homeland Security does not know who did this or why they did it. The

:11:26.:11:30.

concern seems to be that it is a precursor to something happening on

:11:31.:11:36.

the US Election Day. There is a suggestion this has been done by

:11:37.:11:43.

people for political means. I was affected by this. When did your

:11:44.:11:55.

Twitter go down? About an hour ago. Sorry if you're trying to contact

:11:56.:12:01.

me. Here is a picture of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump at this

:12:02.:12:07.

dinner, but it was Donald's bad taste in and the campaign heads a

:12:08.:12:11.

new low. Hillary Clinton look quite amused. She likes to laugh at Donald

:12:12.:12:19.

Trump. This was a memorial dinner which is a pre-election ritual in

:12:20.:12:24.

New York. Traditionally it is quite good-natured and the candidates come

:12:25.:12:30.

together with the Catholics and the New York elite and they laugh at

:12:31.:12:35.

themselves. That is what Hillary Clinton did, she made a few jokes

:12:36.:12:39.

about things Trump had ripped four, the Donald Trump went in hard and

:12:40.:12:45.

used it like our secondary debate. He was booed. I'm not sure it is a

:12:46.:12:54.

new low for him, it has been quite low for a long time. This is one of

:12:55.:12:59.

the moments that happens occasionally when you're meant to

:13:00.:13:06.

self that you, but Trump does not do that. He made one decent joke when

:13:07.:13:11.

he made fun of his speech were made at the convention, saying Michelle

:13:12.:13:17.

Obama gives a speech and everyone loves my wife gives the same speech

:13:18.:13:20.

and everyone hates it. It was the only good joke he gave. He says that

:13:21.:13:24.

Hillary Clinton is only pretending to like Catholics but she hates

:13:25.:13:30.

Catholics. He got booed. Then he said, I don't know what they are

:13:31.:13:35.

booing at me or you. Then someone shouted, we are building at you,

:13:36.:13:41.

Donald. It is a tired then and I'm not sure his voters going to be

:13:42.:13:46.

upset if you'd read to them. It will be interesting to see how it plays.

:13:47.:13:52.

Deed think he has given up? Their strategy is to rally the base and

:13:53.:13:56.

get people angry so they turn up to vote and suppress her boat by saying

:13:57.:14:01.

the independents who think she is corrupt will not show up, but

:14:02.:14:08.

energise those who will show up. Do not think he is laying the ground

:14:09.:14:11.

work from reasons for his defeat? His voter bases quite

:14:12.:14:18.

conspiratorially, the stuff about not accepting the result, he is

:14:19.:14:24.

trying to rally his people to show up and make sure it is not wrecked.

:14:25.:14:29.

I don't think it is going to work, the Republicans have tried it in the

:14:30.:14:35.

past, and the Kennedys, to generate outrage just before Election Day and

:14:36.:14:39.

generally it doesn't work. I would say that Hillary Clinton is going to

:14:40.:14:43.

win. A couple of stories in The Times. Minister sabotage built to

:14:44.:14:57.

clear gay men. It was to remove sexual offence charges from people

:14:58.:15:05.

who are still alive. There was a justice minister involved and he

:15:06.:15:11.

topped the Tote, which means that he topped for too long. I think this is

:15:12.:15:17.

a dish of spectral story. It was thought yesterday they gay men would

:15:18.:15:22.

be pardoned, not only posthumous labour those who are still alive,

:15:23.:15:29.

for historic sex offences. This is after Alan Shearer was pardoned in

:15:30.:15:36.

2014. But that is only going to apply to people on a posthumous

:15:37.:15:41.

basis. The living can already apply to have their records wiped. Nigel

:15:42.:15:47.

Adams is very angry about this and said it was disrespectful. He said

:15:48.:15:51.

that he was fighting back tears. Wes Brown was upset about it too. This

:15:52.:15:59.

was brought by an SNP MP, John Nicholson. This morning it sounded

:16:00.:16:07.

like it was good to happen. I did not realise this was still an issue,

:16:08.:16:11.

that they had not already pardoned everyone. All the reporting we had

:16:12.:16:15.

this morning and last night when this bill was coming to the comments

:16:16.:16:18.

was that it was going to be easily wade through and frankly he

:16:19.:16:24.

presented the paper in front of me and I was amazed that it had not

:16:25.:16:30.

gone through. It is tragic for a number of people who are still

:16:31.:16:35.

alive. It was interesting, I heard a lot of people on your broadcast

:16:36.:16:41.

talking about this who were convicted of this and are still

:16:42.:16:44.

alive and are angry because they do not want to be pardoned because

:16:45.:16:48.

there is nothing wrong with that. That is not what this minister was

:16:49.:16:54.

trying to do. The minister is still planning to support an amendment to

:16:55.:16:57.

the law that would allow a blanket pardon for those still alive, but it

:16:58.:17:03.

is not going to happen today. Another story in The Times, a level

:17:04.:17:09.

art history gets a lifeline by archaeology may be dead and buried.

:17:10.:17:15.

They are looking at what A-level subjects will have to stop for

:17:16.:17:19.

various reasons, they cannot find examiners, it is difficult because

:17:20.:17:23.

this together. There was a bit of concern about art history. There was

:17:24.:17:28.

a bit of an outcry about A-level art history being scrapped. I did

:17:29.:17:34.

English and art history at degree level, so I feel quite passionate

:17:35.:17:38.

about this. It is the ongoing suggestion that humanity is seen as

:17:39.:17:45.

-- suggestion that humanity is seen as Mickey Mouse subjects, but we

:17:46.:17:50.

cannot all be maths wizards. But pure maths is also going to hit the

:17:51.:17:58.

dust. I did not take an A-level, so I'm not sure I have strong opinions

:17:59.:18:03.

on this. I was a history major and if we do not train people to know

:18:04.:18:06.

how to write we will not have newspapers any more. People always

:18:07.:18:13.

say to me what should you studied to become a journalist, English? That

:18:14.:18:17.

is fine, if you want, but the best news rooms are full of people with

:18:18.:18:22.

lots of different experience. They keep having to do this embarrassing

:18:23.:18:28.

U-turns. They tried to drop them at this -- drop feminism from the

:18:29.:18:38.

politics curriculum. In The Telegraph, a Park has banned dog

:18:39.:18:45.

walkers. Thousands of open spaces are no longer open to professional

:18:46.:18:52.

dog walkers. 3300 open spaces have seen dog walkers bands will stop I

:18:53.:18:59.

think this is after the 2014 ASBO spell control. The kennel club has

:19:00.:19:08.

spoken out and accused councils of waging a war on dogs. I don't know

:19:09.:19:14.

if that is entirely fair, because it is professional dog walkers. UDC

:19:15.:19:21.

people trying to handle five or six dogs, which must be quite tricky.

:19:22.:19:29.

Difficult to clean up after as well. It does seem like punching the

:19:30.:19:32.

majority for the actions of the minority. That visit from the papers

:19:33.:19:39.

tonight. Don't forget all the front pages are online and you can read a

:19:40.:19:43.

detailed review of the paper is seven days a week. You can see us

:19:44.:19:52.

thereto. Each episode is posted on the page shortly after and it is on

:19:53.:19:58.

the iPlayer. Amanda likes to work as hard. Peter from the FT and clear,

:19:59.:20:06.

enjoy your weekend. Next, it is the weather.

:20:07.:20:19.

Good evening. The weekend is approaching and we all have that

:20:20.:20:25.

Friday feeling. It has not been too bad a day and it has been dry, but

:20:26.:20:28.

there is a lot

:20:29.:20:29.
