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


With me are the political commentator Jo Phillips,


and the political editor of Sunday People, Nigel Nelson.


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


this front pages. The Observer leads on a claim


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


will relocate outside the UK next It also welcomes the arrival


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


the landmark Dubs amendment, The Times also mentions


Calais and refugee arrivals, but their main story


is an account from reporter Louise Callaghan of the Iraqi


mission to liberate the city dominates the Telegraph's front


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


ignored warnings about the issues - such as age checks -


surrounding their arrival. to have an exclusive


on its front page - a row between Prince Charles


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


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


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


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


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


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


outside the enclosure where the dish officials are processing the claims


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


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


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


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


Telegraph has here is reporting that ministers have basically ignored


offers of help mainly from local government through the Local


Government Association and local councils, because they have to look


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


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


backfired terribly. People do genuinely care about children. You


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


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


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


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


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


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


helping and fearing that somehow the immigration system is being


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


get some taxpayer funded accommodation at Kensington Palace.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


public impact. Maybe we should be capitalising. What about


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


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


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


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


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


have shown any aptitude for doing anything other then not particularly


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


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


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


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


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


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


Bankers' Association, warning that the Republican political debate over


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


knows about this. We have been supporting the 15 charities


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


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


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


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


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


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


doing something. Boris Johnson says demonstrate outside the Russian


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


have had not very politically diplomatic manoeuvring is with the


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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