It also accuses the FBI director - a Republican - of meddling

Let's start with the story on The Times - that any pet and set to
launch a major attack. What is the suggestion here? -- Vladimir Putin.
Western intelligence sources saying Vladimir Putin plans to intensify
the launch of full-scale on Aleppo, half of which is rebel held, in
Syria. The timing is thought to be coinciding with a I -- the US
distracted by the election. He has been travelling to the eastern
Mediterranean and the military buildup would seem to suggest an
even more intense assault on the city by the Russians is imminent. "
From Professor Michael Clarke comparing it to other appalling
scenes of death we have seen across parts of Europe. It is a very
powerful. We could beat ourselves up about this as we did in the former
Yugoslavia. And he is right. When you look at the headlines, people
have not been paying attention to it. People might be thinking, has it
not already happened? That have been bombings for a long period, for at
least the last month, in very intense fashion and it seems that it
will get worse, trying to exploit the gap in US politics because of
the US election. Whoever wins... There will be a period of...
Exactly. While the US back is turned, hammer even harder. You
could only dread to think what that could mean for the people in the
city. Britain, of course, watched as this Russian ship came through the
Channel, thinking it was heading to Syria but it is saying it is trying
to tip the balance in Assad's favour. That is exactly what it is
for. It is the only aircraft carrier they have what it is going to enable
a much more brutal assault on the city fan has been the case and it is
hard to imagine because it has been so brutal and relentless already. So
many civilians are killed, hospitals strike, so it really is chilling. To
consider that as a prospect. The problem is it is suggesting it is
trying to exploit the US political situation and the unfortunate
reality is the US and every other country that has the potential role
to play has not really got an answer to this anyway. Everybody is
involved... But what I mean is they do not have a role in terms of what
to do with Vladimir Putin's strong support for President Assad. When it
comes to it, if he does it, what is the waste going to do in response?
That they have not got a proper answer at the moment. In the Daily
Mail, Hillary and Donald club neck and neck. It does not seem so long
ago since the sexes videos which had a damaging effect on him in the
polls and now it seems to be swinging the other way. It seemed he
was dead in the water stop it seemed inconceivable was going to come back
but here we are. Of course, holes up poles and they are not very
reliable, certainly not in this country. There are other polls with
slightly different margins but all of them seem to be showing that the
gap has narrowed very, very dramatically and a lot of it is down
to these e-mail investigation, the FBI investigation into a new batch
of e-mails that has been found on the server of her. --A. This opening
of this investigation... It is such a huge drop, losing that 12 point
lead, again with all the usual caveat about the polls. The Clinton
campaign are trying to say, you know, she will still win but of
course they will feel devastated and especially because this e-mail batch
that they are investigating, you know, we're not even a certain it is
a new batch. It might be the same batch that has been cleared ready,
it might not even the hope e-mails. There is nothing to suggest there is
anything new that it does seem skewed to have released this
information at this time, so close to the investigation. It reopens one
of the weak fronts, the weak area, and so, unfortunately for her, a lot
of spin in the agenda is something that you would not be wanting to
talk about it, regardless of why it happened. It is there and it is a
grenade. In The Guardian, Theresa May's claim on health funding not
crew according to some MPs. Disputing the idea that the NHS has
received ?10 billion extra? Theresa May gave an interview last and she
said -- last month and she said the NHS at us extra funding to make up
the fall. That in fact it was going to get ?10 billion extra per this
party is saying it is not even a true and that at best it is getting
?6 billion and even that has been done while agreeing to cut things,
critical spending on things like training and various health
programmes and so this is of course part of the much bigger problem
which is that the NHS is devastatingly underfunded and there
has been warning for some time and the result is that hospitals are now
looking at how many beds they are going to have to cut, or which a and
E department they are going to have to cut because there is no way to
deal with these kind of funding. A lot of units have already been
downgraded and closed anyway. Exactly. Fairly stark statistics.
Almost half are planning to cut death and to close and cut down
units. It exactly shows the impact, potentially, of these funding gap
and, of course, the government will say they are putting more money in
but the problem is money is not enough to keep at pace with the
rising cost of demand and services for the population. And all of this
just creates an ever tighter financial situation which, at some
point, it appears to becoming ever sooner according to the Telegraph,
is coming into a crunch. If you are moving from one area, public health
programmes and so on, to try to plug the gap in the NHS you could be
creating further problems down the health. It is not just the
government imposing these cuts on the NHS but also on social care
which will have a knock-on effect on the NHS because of the service is
not available through social care will put pressure on the NHS. It is
like a double prong cut. To be fair to them, it is not so much a cut but
not enough the amount of money. I do not feel like being fed when it
comes to the NHS. The Bank of England, it wants to steer the
economy through Brexit. Glutton for punishment? It is a great challenge.
You might think that it is an interesting challenge and it would
be fantastic for him to have achieved. It is an interesting story
because it has been speculated in the last week that he was fed up
with being identified with some pro- Brexit MPs and disappointed at the
very least by comments by Theresa May in her conference speech.
Basically inflated asset prices. He was therefore going to in a
disgruntled fashion but the FT is saying he is going to stay on,
albeit the story has a slight caveat. Just in case. I hoping he
does because broadly, the right clearly criticisms about the way he
gave warnings before the referendum but I think he has done a pretty
good job and the stability it would help. You would not want a new
governor coming in this point? Know, and especially when he was the
man... He has been described as the only adult in the room after Brexit.
He was a man that stood there and pumped lots of money into the
economy to stop the pound crashing. It did plummet but not as much as it
could have. He tried to reassure businesses that everything was OK
stop it seems like the kind of guy that you would want to stick around,
given the sort of rising cost and plummeting pound and rising
inflation that we are now facing. Let's finish with the FT. This tells
us that ?472 million spending on Halloween is going to boost British
retailers this year. We around disabled or not care for it, do we?
Why not? It was not much of a thing when I was a boy. We had mischief
night on November four, that was the think, the proper night. Halloween
was a bit of apple bobbing. All very tame. We just did fireworks, bonfire
night. I do not remember this being a big thing but this is the
retailing spree bonanza holiday. I cannot from Cardiff on the train and
just looking at half the people on the train, but with these really
elaborate costumes at sea can see where the money is spent. A lot of
effort. When kids come trickle cheating, what do you do was make I
keep the lights off. I have a back of sweets. I might put it to the
test tomorrow. That is it for the papers, thank you very much. Don't
forget all the papers are online and you can eat a detailed review of
them on the BBC website. Thank you to Martin and Rachel Stott now it is
time for the film review.
