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

:00:22.:00:24.

With me are the Home Affairs Editor of the Evening Standard,

:00:25.:00:28.

Martin Bentham, and the broadcaster Rachel Shabi.

:00:29.:00:34.

The Bank of England Governor's future makes the front page

:00:35.:00:53.

It says Mark Carney is likely to make a statement this week ending

:00:54.:00:57.

speculation that he will step down before Britain leaves the EU.

:00:58.:01:00.

It says the new FBI probe into Hillary Clinton's emails

:01:01.:01:06.

has cost her her lead over her Republican presidential

:01:07.:01:09.

The paper says a group of MPs say Theresa May's claims

:01:10.:01:16.

that the government is putting 10 billion pounds extra

:01:17.:01:18.

into the National Health Service is not true.

:01:19.:01:22.

The Independent leads with the US Election campaign.

:01:23.:01:25.

It shows Jennifer Lopez campaigning with Hillary Clinton in an appeal

:01:26.:01:28.

to the Hispanic population as the latest polls show

:01:29.:01:32.

Donald Trump may be winning over some of the undecided voters

:01:33.:01:35.

following the new FBI inquiry into Mrs Clinton's emails.

:01:36.:01:38.

The Telegraph leads on what it describes as the financial crisis

:01:39.:01:41.

It says nearly half of NHS authorities in England are drawing

:01:42.:01:45.

up plans to cut hospital beds and a third are proposing to close

:01:46.:01:49.

or downgrade Accident Emergency departments.

:01:50.:01:52.

The devastation of Italy's earthquake makes the front page

:01:53.:01:54.

of the Metro - the worst quake in nearly 40 years.

:01:55.:01:59.

It also accuses the FBI director - a republican of meddling in politics

:02:00.:02:05.

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

:02:06.:02:08.

in politics as it opens a new inquiry

:02:09.:02:10.

the country chooses its next President.

:02:11.:02:15.

Let's start with the story on The Times - that any pet and set to

:02:16.:02:24.

launch a major attack. What is the suggestion here? -- Vladimir Putin.

:02:25.:02:32.

Western intelligence sources saying Vladimir Putin plans to intensify

:02:33.:02:40.

the launch of full-scale on Aleppo, half of which is rebel held, in

:02:41.:02:48.

Syria. The timing is thought to be coinciding with a I -- the US

:02:49.:03:04.

distracted by the election. He has been travelling to the eastern

:03:05.:03:09.

Mediterranean and the military buildup would seem to suggest an

:03:10.:03:15.

even more intense assault on the city by the Russians is imminent. "

:03:16.:03:24.

From Professor Michael Clarke comparing it to other appalling

:03:25.:03:31.

scenes of death we have seen across parts of Europe. It is a very

:03:32.:03:38.

powerful. We could beat ourselves up about this as we did in the former

:03:39.:03:45.

Yugoslavia. And he is right. When you look at the headlines, people

:03:46.:03:50.

have not been paying attention to it. People might be thinking, has it

:03:51.:03:59.

not already happened? That have been bombings for a long period, for at

:04:00.:04:04.

least the last month, in very intense fashion and it seems that it

:04:05.:04:11.

will get worse, trying to exploit the gap in US politics because of

:04:12.:04:17.

the US election. Whoever wins... There will be a period of...

:04:18.:04:23.

Exactly. While the US back is turned, hammer even harder. You

:04:24.:04:30.

could only dread to think what that could mean for the people in the

:04:31.:04:35.

city. Britain, of course, watched as this Russian ship came through the

:04:36.:04:42.

Channel, thinking it was heading to Syria but it is saying it is trying

:04:43.:04:54.

to tip the balance in Assad's favour. That is exactly what it is

:04:55.:05:03.

for. It is the only aircraft carrier they have what it is going to enable

:05:04.:05:08.

a much more brutal assault on the city fan has been the case and it is

:05:09.:05:13.

hard to imagine because it has been so brutal and relentless already. So

:05:14.:05:19.

many civilians are killed, hospitals strike, so it really is chilling. To

:05:20.:05:26.

consider that as a prospect. The problem is it is suggesting it is

:05:27.:05:32.

trying to exploit the US political situation and the unfortunate

:05:33.:05:36.

reality is the US and every other country that has the potential role

:05:37.:05:41.

to play has not really got an answer to this anyway. Everybody is

:05:42.:05:47.

involved... But what I mean is they do not have a role in terms of what

:05:48.:05:53.

to do with Vladimir Putin's strong support for President Assad. When it

:05:54.:06:01.

comes to it, if he does it, what is the waste going to do in response?

:06:02.:06:08.

That they have not got a proper answer at the moment. In the Daily

:06:09.:06:14.

Mail, Hillary and Donald club neck and neck. It does not seem so long

:06:15.:06:25.

ago since the sexes videos which had a damaging effect on him in the

:06:26.:06:29.

polls and now it seems to be swinging the other way. It seemed he

:06:30.:06:36.

was dead in the water stop it seemed inconceivable was going to come back

:06:37.:06:40.

but here we are. Of course, holes up poles and they are not very

:06:41.:06:44.

reliable, certainly not in this country. There are other polls with

:06:45.:06:49.

slightly different margins but all of them seem to be showing that the

:06:50.:06:54.

gap has narrowed very, very dramatically and a lot of it is down

:06:55.:07:00.

to these e-mail investigation, the FBI investigation into a new batch

:07:01.:07:04.

of e-mails that has been found on the server of her. --A. This opening

:07:05.:07:19.

of this investigation... It is such a huge drop, losing that 12 point

:07:20.:07:26.

lead, again with all the usual caveat about the polls. The Clinton

:07:27.:07:35.

campaign are trying to say, you know, she will still win but of

:07:36.:07:39.

course they will feel devastated and especially because this e-mail batch

:07:40.:07:45.

that they are investigating, you know, we're not even a certain it is

:07:46.:07:50.

a new batch. It might be the same batch that has been cleared ready,

:07:51.:07:55.

it might not even the hope e-mails. There is nothing to suggest there is

:07:56.:08:02.

anything new that it does seem skewed to have released this

:08:03.:08:06.

information at this time, so close to the investigation. It reopens one

:08:07.:08:14.

of the weak fronts, the weak area, and so, unfortunately for her, a lot

:08:15.:08:23.

of spin in the agenda is something that you would not be wanting to

:08:24.:08:30.

talk about it, regardless of why it happened. It is there and it is a

:08:31.:08:36.

grenade. In The Guardian, Theresa May's claim on health funding not

:08:37.:08:43.

crew according to some MPs. Disputing the idea that the NHS has

:08:44.:08:50.

received ?10 billion extra? Theresa May gave an interview last and she

:08:51.:09:02.

said -- last month and she said the NHS at us extra funding to make up

:09:03.:09:09.

the fall. That in fact it was going to get ?10 billion extra per this

:09:10.:09:15.

party is saying it is not even a true and that at best it is getting

:09:16.:09:19.

?6 billion and even that has been done while agreeing to cut things,

:09:20.:09:24.

critical spending on things like training and various health

:09:25.:09:31.

programmes and so this is of course part of the much bigger problem

:09:32.:09:36.

which is that the NHS is devastatingly underfunded and there

:09:37.:09:43.

has been warning for some time and the result is that hospitals are now

:09:44.:09:48.

looking at how many beds they are going to have to cut, or which a and

:09:49.:09:54.

E department they are going to have to cut because there is no way to

:09:55.:10:01.

deal with these kind of funding. A lot of units have already been

:10:02.:10:04.

downgraded and closed anyway. Exactly. Fairly stark statistics.

:10:05.:10:11.

Almost half are planning to cut death and to close and cut down

:10:12.:10:18.

units. It exactly shows the impact, potentially, of these funding gap

:10:19.:10:25.

and, of course, the government will say they are putting more money in

:10:26.:10:30.

but the problem is money is not enough to keep at pace with the

:10:31.:10:34.

rising cost of demand and services for the population. And all of this

:10:35.:10:40.

just creates an ever tighter financial situation which, at some

:10:41.:10:48.

point, it appears to becoming ever sooner according to the Telegraph,

:10:49.:10:55.

is coming into a crunch. If you are moving from one area, public health

:10:56.:11:01.

programmes and so on, to try to plug the gap in the NHS you could be

:11:02.:11:05.

creating further problems down the health. It is not just the

:11:06.:11:12.

government imposing these cuts on the NHS but also on social care

:11:13.:11:18.

which will have a knock-on effect on the NHS because of the service is

:11:19.:11:22.

not available through social care will put pressure on the NHS. It is

:11:23.:11:29.

like a double prong cut. To be fair to them, it is not so much a cut but

:11:30.:11:35.

not enough the amount of money. I do not feel like being fed when it

:11:36.:11:40.

comes to the NHS. The Bank of England, it wants to steer the

:11:41.:11:47.

economy through Brexit. Glutton for punishment? It is a great challenge.

:11:48.:11:53.

You might think that it is an interesting challenge and it would

:11:54.:11:59.

be fantastic for him to have achieved. It is an interesting story

:12:00.:12:04.

because it has been speculated in the last week that he was fed up

:12:05.:12:10.

with being identified with some pro- Brexit MPs and disappointed at the

:12:11.:12:14.

very least by comments by Theresa May in her conference speech.

:12:15.:12:24.

Basically inflated asset prices. He was therefore going to in a

:12:25.:12:30.

disgruntled fashion but the FT is saying he is going to stay on,

:12:31.:12:36.

albeit the story has a slight caveat. Just in case. I hoping he

:12:37.:12:44.

does because broadly, the right clearly criticisms about the way he

:12:45.:12:52.

gave warnings before the referendum but I think he has done a pretty

:12:53.:12:56.

good job and the stability it would help. You would not want a new

:12:57.:13:01.

governor coming in this point? Know, and especially when he was the

:13:02.:13:06.

man... He has been described as the only adult in the room after Brexit.

:13:07.:13:12.

He was a man that stood there and pumped lots of money into the

:13:13.:13:18.

economy to stop the pound crashing. It did plummet but not as much as it

:13:19.:13:23.

could have. He tried to reassure businesses that everything was OK

:13:24.:13:28.

stop it seems like the kind of guy that you would want to stick around,

:13:29.:13:32.

given the sort of rising cost and plummeting pound and rising

:13:33.:13:36.

inflation that we are now facing. Let's finish with the FT. This tells

:13:37.:13:49.

us that ?472 million spending on Halloween is going to boost British

:13:50.:13:56.

retailers this year. We around disabled or not care for it, do we?

:13:57.:14:02.

Why not? It was not much of a thing when I was a boy. We had mischief

:14:03.:14:08.

night on November four, that was the think, the proper night. Halloween

:14:09.:14:16.

was a bit of apple bobbing. All very tame. We just did fireworks, bonfire

:14:17.:14:23.

night. I do not remember this being a big thing but this is the

:14:24.:14:31.

retailing spree bonanza holiday. I cannot from Cardiff on the train and

:14:32.:14:36.

just looking at half the people on the train, but with these really

:14:37.:14:42.

elaborate costumes at sea can see where the money is spent. A lot of

:14:43.:14:46.

effort. When kids come trickle cheating, what do you do was make I

:14:47.:14:53.

keep the lights off. I have a back of sweets. I might put it to the

:14:54.:15:04.

test tomorrow. That is it for the papers, thank you very much. Don't

:15:05.:15:08.

forget all the papers are online and you can eat a detailed review of

:15:09.:15:22.

them on the BBC website. Thank you to Martin and Rachel Stott now it is

:15:23.:15:27.

time for the film review.
