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

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are the political commentator Jo Phillips,

:00:17.:00:22.

and the political editor of Sunday People, Nigel Nelson.

:00:23.:00:27.

Welcome to you both again. Let's update you with what is happening on

:00:28.:00:35.

this front pages. The Observer leads on a claim

:00:36.:00:36.

by the British Bankers' Association that the UK's biggest banks

:00:37.:00:39.

will relocate outside the UK next It also welcomes the arrival

:00:40.:00:42.

of child refugees from Calais, some of them brought here under

:00:43.:00:46.

the landmark Dubs amendment, The Times also mentions

:00:47.:00:49.

Calais and refugee arrivals, but their main story

:00:50.:00:52.

is an account from reporter Louise Callaghan of the Iraqi

:00:53.:00:54.

mission to liberate the city dominates the Telegraph's front

:00:55.:00:57.

page, but the paper focuses on claims that the Home Office

:00:58.:01:06.

ignored warnings about the issues - such as age checks -

:01:07.:01:09.

surrounding their arrival. to have an exclusive

:01:10.:01:11.

on its front page - a row between Prince Charles

:01:12.:01:15.

and Prince Andrew over the official roles of Andrew's daughters

:01:16.:01:18.

Beatrice and Eugenie. More of that in a moment. Let's

:01:19.:01:31.

begin with the Sunday Telegraph and a very striking photograph on the

:01:32.:01:35.

front of the paper. If very striking photograph of quite a lot of young

:01:36.:01:39.

men, some wearing hoods will stop one has his face covered with a

:01:40.:01:44.

scar. According to the caption, these are hopeful migrants queueing

:01:45.:01:47.

outside the enclosure where the dish officials are processing the claims

:01:48.:01:53.

of unaccompanied minors -- scarf. It is not the most helpful photograph

:01:54.:01:57.

because they certainly do not look like children. They may be under 18

:01:58.:02:01.

but not the vulnerable children we are supposed to be helping.

:02:02.:02:05.

Certainly that will be the opinion of a lot of people. The story the

:02:06.:02:13.

Telegraph has here is reporting that ministers have basically ignored

:02:14.:02:17.

offers of help mainly from local government through the Local

:02:18.:02:21.

Government Association and local councils, because they have to look

:02:22.:02:24.

after the kids. They offered to send social workers and support with

:02:25.:02:31.

Ajax. So this is all being done in a rush. -- age checks. It has

:02:32.:02:36.

backfired terribly. People do genuinely care about children. You

:02:37.:02:43.

think of the little boy jamming on the beach in Greece. The little boy

:02:44.:02:47.

in the back of the ambulance in Aleppo -- drowning. But people do

:02:48.:02:51.

not expect to see young men jumping the queue because they will be

:02:52.:03:01.

vulnerable and girls -- girls and children. Who are looking after

:03:02.:03:06.

these young people? They will be foster parents. They have a right to

:03:07.:03:11.

feel safe and decent, honest about it. Nigel, it is a fine line between

:03:12.:03:24.

helping and fearing that somehow the immigration system is being

:03:25.:03:29.

manipulated. Yes, there really is a public relations exercise that has

:03:30.:03:33.

to go along with it. Most people are very sympathetic to the plight of

:03:34.:03:38.

children in the jungle in Calais. So taking children over here whether

:03:39.:03:45.

they have relatives here or are unaccompanied, that is fine provided

:03:46.:03:48.

they are children and our honourable. What seems to have gone

:03:49.:03:53.

wrong here, apart from the shambolic organisation leading up to the

:03:54.:03:59.

closure of the camp, there were offers of help given back in August

:04:00.:04:03.

-- vulnerable. Social services could have checked things like dental

:04:04.:04:07.

records and established the age of the children. All people are asking

:04:08.:04:14.

is that stood out. -- let's do that. We should be doing it. It should

:04:15.:04:20.

have been better organised. The picture shows these people are just

:04:21.:04:24.

crying desperately to get into the country. This is not organised. In

:04:25.:04:32.

2015, nearly two thirds of child asylum seekers whose age was

:04:33.:04:38.

disputed were found to be adults, around 900, so 600 people. They are

:04:39.:04:43.

taking spaces that should be going to children. And there is a question

:04:44.:04:48.

of public confidence. Yes, but at the bottom of the queue at the kids

:04:49.:04:53.

who are left behind. Let's talk about that story on the front of the

:04:54.:04:57.

Sunday Express referred to in the introduction. This is about the

:04:58.:05:02.

princesses Eugenie and Beatrice and whether or not they should have an

:05:03.:05:06.

official role. It is a great headline. It is a great headline. We

:05:07.:05:12.

have everybody, Prince Charles, the Queen, return true -- Prince Andrew.

:05:13.:05:21.

Broadly the story is saying that Prince Andrew once his daughters to

:05:22.:05:25.

have a proper role, to basically join and get some royal duties and

:05:26.:05:29.

get some taxpayer funded accommodation at Kensington Palace.

:05:30.:05:35.

Prince Charles is against this totally, and somewhere in the middle

:05:36.:05:39.

is the Queen, who presumably will have to say yes or no. At the

:05:40.:05:43.

moment, my sympathy is with the princesses. I think the rural family

:05:44.:05:50.

to need an injection of royal blood. Provided they get on with the job,

:05:51.:05:54.

which obviously one would hope they would do, I think it would be ideal

:05:55.:05:58.

to actually drive them in for a number of roles. -- draft. Prince

:05:59.:06:06.

Andrew has not had a great press. Neither has their mother. I would be

:06:07.:06:13.

happy to give them a chance and let them have a go. Do you not think

:06:14.:06:17.

they have had a chance in the years grown-up? They have not had an

:06:18.:06:20.

official role. They are in their early 20s. What Prince Andrew is

:06:21.:06:26.

suggesting according to this report is give them that official role. It

:06:27.:06:30.

would have to be taxpayer funded. If you are going to slowly reduce the

:06:31.:06:35.

role of some of the older members of the Royal family, Princess Anne is

:06:36.:06:38.

in her 60s and has been quite busy over the years. She will slow her

:06:39.:06:44.

engagements down and maybe they could move up into that sort of

:06:45.:06:48.

role. I want to know precisely what role Princess Beatrice and Eugenie

:06:49.:06:54.

might add to anything? They could open things. They could enhance the

:06:55.:07:00.

charity of some... Can I tell you, my local theatre in Canterbury,

:07:01.:07:05.

which does a marvellous pantomime every year, a couple of years ago

:07:06.:07:09.

did Cinderella, and they happen to name the ugly sisters Eugenie and

:07:10.:07:14.

Beatrice. I am just mentioning it. That shows at least they have made a

:07:15.:07:19.

public impact. Maybe we should be capitalising. What about

:07:20.:07:23.

international pressure on? As ugly sisters? No. Representing Britain on

:07:24.:07:31.

the international stage. A little bit like Prince Andrew has been

:07:32.:07:36.

doing on the getting business for Britain? I don't think you can visit

:07:37.:07:40.

the sins of the Buddha on the daughters. -- father. I wonder what

:07:41.:07:46.

Eugenie and Beatrice would bring to anything given that neither of them

:07:47.:07:50.

have shown any aptitude for doing anything other then not particularly

:07:51.:07:55.

going to work. Let's give them a chance and some work experience and

:07:56.:08:01.

see what happens. Let's turn to Page four, which we can't do,

:08:02.:08:07.

unfortunately, and they will find out the rest of the story. Let's

:08:08.:08:13.

move onto more sobering stories, and that is the fate of banks after

:08:14.:08:18.

Brexit. One of the stories that doesn't sound terribly new or

:08:19.:08:22.

suppressing. This is Anthony Brown, the Chief Executive of the British

:08:23.:08:28.

Bankers' Association, warning that the Republican political debate over

:08:29.:08:31.

Brexit is taking us in the wrong direction because the banks, which

:08:32.:08:37.

is not a street, the big banks based in Britain, are preparing to

:08:38.:08:41.

relocate. Some of them as soon as Christmas or by Christmas, and the

:08:42.:08:46.

others early next year. Because there won't be able to trade

:08:47.:08:50.

injuries once Brexit happens, once we are no longer in the EU -- US.

:08:51.:08:57.

This mysterious passport system. So you are a bang from America or Hong

:08:58.:09:03.

Kong, because you are in Britain, in Europe at the moment, you can carry

:09:04.:09:07.

on doing that sort of stuff -- bank. No obstacles. Hissene Habre say this

:09:08.:09:13.

may not work so well once we get Article 50. We may need to relocate

:09:14.:09:18.

to Frankfurt or malign or whatever -- so the banks say. 70,000

:09:19.:09:27.

financial jobs... One of our biggest exports, financial services. And

:09:28.:09:32.

over one Chilean pounds. But he would say that, because he

:09:33.:09:37.

represents the bankers! Trillion. The idea they will all rush off in

:09:38.:09:41.

the New Year, I think that is pretty unlikely. The first thing that will

:09:42.:09:45.

happen is we have to get the Brexit negotiations going. This will play a

:09:46.:09:50.

major part in it. The role of the city of London in a post- Brexit

:09:51.:09:54.

Britain will be hugely important. The banks ought to hold fire for a

:09:55.:09:58.

little while and see what is going on. If American bankers want to go

:09:59.:10:02.

given for the rather than buzzing London, off they go. But I think

:10:03.:10:08.

they would rather stay here. The danger, although other European

:10:09.:10:12.

countries are vying for their business and patron edge, the danger

:10:13.:10:16.

of is the is that most of them would go back to America -- patronage. If

:10:17.:10:21.

there is no benefit being here, you may as well be in New York. That one

:10:22.:10:28.

will come back again and again until the negotiations are concluded.

:10:29.:10:33.

Let's take about -- talk about a story that never seems to go away,

:10:34.:10:38.

five years into the conflict in Syria. This picture on the front of

:10:39.:10:41.

the Observer of Carey Mulligan holding a teddy bear. Your newspaper

:10:42.:10:47.

knows about this. We have been supporting the 15 charities

:10:48.:10:54.

organising the protest today. Carey Mulligan water daughter's teddy

:10:55.:11:00.

bear. There are another 200 of them to represent each child that has

:11:01.:11:03.

been killed since the ceasefire broke down last month -- brought her

:11:04.:11:09.

daughter's. The point of the demonstration is to get some kind of

:11:10.:11:13.

action from Theresa May and Boris Johnson. At the moment, nobody knows

:11:14.:11:18.

what to do. That is not to underestimate the difficulties of

:11:19.:11:22.

doing something. Boris Johnson says demonstrate outside the Russian

:11:23.:11:26.

Embassy. Yes, he does. It is all well and good saying Theresa May and

:11:27.:11:32.

Boris Johnson, but it is down to President Putin and President Assad.

:11:33.:11:37.

But if we can't get them around the table, the next age is going to be

:11:38.:11:44.

some kind of restriction over flying over Aleppo -- the next stage. If

:11:45.:11:51.

you have aircraft can't go into a no-fly zone, the whole thing is, it

:11:52.:11:58.

is hugely dangerous. We know the risk of a confrontation, dogfight in

:11:59.:12:05.

their over Aleppo between us and the Russians could start world War

:12:06.:12:09.

three. But that is a very... President Putin would have to be

:12:10.:12:14.

totally mad to allow that to happen. With plenty of warning the --

:12:15.:12:22.

beforehand, it could work. Let's go to the Sunday Times. We don't have

:12:23.:12:28.

much time left. But the photo story at the top about Islamic State. Yes,

:12:29.:12:34.

this is the report from one of the embedded reporters who is out in

:12:35.:12:41.

Mosul. I mean, it does feel like we are just talking about war, and it

:12:42.:12:45.

is really horrifying. What is going on in Syria, Mosul is into its sixth

:12:46.:12:53.

or seventh day, this battle for a key time in a right. It is not so

:12:54.:12:58.

much who wins the battle but what happens afterwards -- in Iraq. We

:12:59.:13:04.

have had not very politically diplomatic manoeuvring is with the

:13:05.:13:09.

government saying they don't want anything to do with Turkey. Will it

:13:10.:13:13.

make ISIS retreat August where else? It comes back to there are ordinary

:13:14.:13:18.

people start their -- or go somewhere else. There is no quick

:13:19.:13:22.

resolution. There is no quick resolution. We should welcome the

:13:23.:13:28.

fact that we are going to recapture Mosul, the Allies, and it is a start

:13:29.:13:35.

in the right direction. Islamic State is on the run. We are

:13:36.:13:41.

gradually pushing them back. We have taken 35% of their territory. All of

:13:42.:13:45.

these things must be good. Probably the only way we will ever deal with

:13:46.:13:50.

them is a military victory. But in the meantime, so-called Islamic

:13:51.:13:55.

State have rounded up and killed and boys. They have been used as human

:13:56.:14:02.

shields. A rather sombre note to end on, but that is how it ends. And

:14:03.:14:07.

that is how it is on the front pages. Thank you for joining us for

:14:08.:14:12.

the papers. My thanks for giving us such an interesting take on what

:14:13.:14:16.

they have been saying on the front pages to mind. That is it from us.

:14:17.:14:22.

More news at the top of the hour. Coming up next, The Film Review.
