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

:00:13.:00:16.

With me are broadcaster Edward Adoo and journalist James Rampton.

:00:17.:00:25.

A warm welcome to you both. Let's show you what we have so far in the

:00:26.:00:31.

front pages. The Financial Times reports that

:00:32.:00:32.

Mark Carney is staying as Governor of the Bank of England until 2019

:00:33.:00:34.

to steer Britain's central bank He is also on the Telegraph's front

:00:35.:00:37.

page, as is Donald Trump. Donald Trump,

:00:38.:00:50.

who the paper says making moves by the FBI over Hillary Clinton's

:00:51.:00:52.

emails. It's a story that's dominating

:00:53.:00:57.

the i front page too. It says Hillary Clinton is 'waging

:00:58.:00:59.

war' on the FBI. The Metro leads with the moment

:01:00.:01:01.

a lorry driver, distracted by his mobile phone, killed four

:01:02.:01:04.

people in a multiple car pile up. The Guardian says Russia

:01:05.:01:07.

poses an increasing threat to UK security -

:01:08.:01:09.

according to the Head It's the first newspaper interview

:01:10.:01:11.

with a serving MI5 chief. And the Mail reports that

:01:12.:01:19.

a taskforce, set up to capture wealthy tax evaders,

:01:20.:01:22.

has had only one successful The times focuses on the UK's

:01:23.:01:33.

readiness to strike back at any foreign cyber threat and also

:01:34.:01:37.

features a shot of Mark Carney, who appears to be winking at the camera

:01:38.:01:41.

on his way out of Downing Street. Maybe he knew something.

:01:42.:01:45.

CHUCKLES He knew how long he was going to

:01:46.:01:51.

stay in the job, and according to be Telegraph, Carney to quit straight

:01:52.:01:54.

after Brexit, one way of looking at it.

:01:55.:01:56.

They have gone with this catchy headline and everyone expected him

:01:57.:02:02.

to stay in the job until 2021. He will be in the job until 2019. It is

:02:03.:02:10.

the whole issue of Brexit, will he stay? Will he go? He's going to go

:02:11.:02:17.

after Brexit. I think he's done well in terms of what he's all about.

:02:18.:02:22.

He's kept everyone in a positive frame in terms of the economy. But

:02:23.:02:26.

there was speculation that he would quit, and a lot of people have kind

:02:27.:02:32.

of been criticising that, in fact he should have done his full term.

:02:33.:02:37.

There has been a lot of speculation, well, a lot of bickering as to why

:02:38.:02:44.

he is deciding to leave. In terms of Brexit, he is going to stay through.

:02:45.:02:49.

James, some of the Brexiteers don't like him and thought he was a

:02:50.:02:51.

prophet of doom during the referendum. He did and he got

:02:52.:02:58.

slated, by Jacob Rees-Mogg and Iain Duncan-Smith laying into him today.

:02:59.:03:03.

After the referendum he was the only person who seemed to have his head

:03:04.:03:07.

screwed on and announced they would be quantitative easing, which saved

:03:08.:03:10.

the economy. George Osborne was nowhere to be seen, Boris Johnson

:03:11.:03:15.

preparing to play cricket, Michael Gove preparing to stab various

:03:16.:03:19.

people in the back. When you expect somebody to give you some form of

:03:20.:03:24.

positivity, and there was no one around, and Mark Carney save the

:03:25.:03:29.

day. I hope these Tory Brexiteers have not chased him out because he

:03:30.:03:33.

is a stabilising influence in this turbulent time.

:03:34.:03:36.

We need sensible people like that to steady the ship. He will stick

:03:37.:03:40.

around for awhile longer. DfT have that on their front page also.

:03:41.:03:45.

Carney extends term to steer Bank of England Brexit negotiations will

:03:46.:03:50.

stop -- DfT. The Telegraph mentioned he is going

:03:51.:03:55.

to quit. Here they are saying he will stay during the negotiations.

:03:56.:04:00.

In actual fact, what you're saying, James, is there needs to be someone

:04:01.:04:03.

in place who will sure things don't go wrong. There needs to be a

:04:04.:04:11.

leader. Michael Gove was looking for a job!

:04:12.:04:13.

LAUGHTER Let's not go there. He will not be

:04:14.:04:16.

your friend tomorrow! He wasn't my friend today!

:04:17.:04:21.

Gof for governor would have a certain ring about it. Let's go to

:04:22.:04:28.

the other side of the pond and the American election is getting

:04:29.:04:29.

interesting. So many twists and turns. This is the gift that keeps

:04:30.:04:34.

on giving. It's incredible, just when you think it is a done deal,

:04:35.:04:37.

Hillary Clinton 12 points egghead, this extraordinary revelation that

:04:38.:04:44.

James Coney sent this letter saying he is minded to reopen the

:04:45.:04:48.

investigation and the Democrats, as the eye newspaper said, they are

:04:49.:04:53.

waiting warn him. And then they said James Coney might be sitting on some

:04:54.:04:57.

information linking Trump to the Russians and they are calling on him

:04:58.:05:00.

to resign. Even Josh Earnest refused to endorse James Coney today. The

:05:01.:05:06.

White House is supposed to be neutral. President Obama appointed

:05:07.:05:10.

him. Massive pressure on James Coney. What he has done is

:05:11.:05:15.

unprecedented. According to the FT Trump saying, Clinton if she was

:05:16.:05:19.

elected President, would face a criminal trial as a sitting

:05:20.:05:23.

President. Sitting trial, you've got to think for the electorate, what is

:05:24.:05:26.

going on here, this constant bickering with Trump and with these

:05:27.:05:32.

e-mails, do they actually want to know what is going on, that is the

:05:33.:05:36.

question that should be asked. Trump is using this as his weapon of mass

:05:37.:05:41.

destruction and no pun intended. What was shocking is James Comey

:05:42.:05:47.

hadn't even seen any of the e-mails when he sent the letter so in my

:05:48.:05:50.

eyes he is making a clearly political jester doing that. He is a

:05:51.:05:56.

Republican and to do it in 11 days before the General Election is

:05:57.:05:59.

absolutely unprecedented and that is why he has caused such a storm of

:06:00.:06:04.

criticism. One reporter said he thought if he didn't do it it would

:06:05.:06:08.

be leaked by some people at the FBI. We have a nice cartoon in the

:06:09.:06:14.

Telegraph as ever. It is great. So slow, and now we have started

:06:15.:06:17.

getting all of Hillary Clinton's e-mails. It reminds me in the 90s,

:06:18.:06:23.

if you have dial up, if you remember, the old-fashioned way of

:06:24.:06:29.

connecting to the Internet. Imagine everyone just waiting for the

:06:30.:06:32.

e-mails to come through. That he was what he was trying to put across.

:06:33.:06:39.

Only 350,000, they cannot take that long to download! Donald Trump did

:06:40.:06:46.

say, what does she do all day? She must be constantly writing e-mails.

:06:47.:06:50.

Can you imagine Trump waking up at three o'clock in the morning

:06:51.:06:53.

thinking I want those e-mails. He is tweeting all the time, he is a fine

:06:54.:06:58.

one to talk! Let's move on to the eye which has not very prominently

:06:59.:07:05.

but the Orgreave inquiry is not happening. What is your thought on

:07:06.:07:08.

that, James? I agree with Andy Burnham, he said it was an

:07:09.:07:12.

establishment stitch up and it seems to me the campaigners are claiming

:07:13.:07:16.

that Amber Rudd appeared to promise them in inquiry, just a question of

:07:17.:07:20.

what form of inquiry and now, apparently, or allegedly, she has

:07:21.:07:25.

backed out of that pledge. Quite understandably in my eyes, the

:07:26.:07:29.

campaigners are furious about it. The campaigners said that it was

:07:30.:07:33.

alleged that Amber Rudd said in what context? And that is what they are

:07:34.:07:38.

arguing about. They didn't get what they wanted. Andy Burnham earlier

:07:39.:07:41.

today said it was an establishment stitch up. We were just talking

:07:42.:07:48.

about Hillsborough, and it happened with the same police force. In

:07:49.:07:52.

actual fact, would this not going ahead, it saves the force from

:07:53.:07:56.

further backlash, but for the campaigners and families who wanted

:07:57.:07:59.

some answers out of this, will they get the answers? Labour is

:08:00.:08:02.

championing this and want to get some answers from this but many will

:08:03.:08:06.

question why Amber Rudd has decided to make this decision and will

:08:07.:08:12.

anything ever come out of it? Lord Tebbit explicitly said it would be

:08:13.:08:16.

used with a stick to beat Mrs Thatcher's government. I will just

:08:17.:08:21.

leave that hanging there. Let's look at the Metro, they have one of the

:08:22.:08:25.

most awful stories I have read for a long time about the lorry driver. He

:08:26.:08:31.

was on his phone. So many people use their mobiles while driving, but

:08:32.:08:35.

what catastrophic consequences, to kill four people. I saw the footage

:08:36.:08:39.

earlier, Thames Valley Police have worked with the family to show

:08:40.:08:43.

footage of what actually happened and it is scary. You could be

:08:44.:08:46.

driving along on any motorway and you could be driving ahead, could be

:08:47.:08:52.

a lorry driver, he was probably shuffling trying to find a track on

:08:53.:08:56.

his playlist and he went straight head on, I'm not sure how fast he

:08:57.:09:00.

was going. The judge said it was like he had his eyes closed,

:09:01.:09:04.

effectively. Absolutely, and he said he turned his lorry into a lethal

:09:05.:09:08.

weapon and the mother of one of the poor children who died said I would

:09:09.:09:14.

urge you to make a personal promise not to use a mobile phone while

:09:15.:09:18.

driving. That will not happen, when I'm driving I see people still using

:09:19.:09:22.

mobile phones. I think the Government needs to get involved.

:09:23.:09:27.

Ibiza should be a stronger penalty. Or a campaign -- maybe there should

:09:28.:09:33.

be. People might think that could have been my children. They should

:09:34.:09:38.

show the footage of what happened. When I saw that it was heartbreaking

:09:39.:09:42.

to see the impact of what took place.

:09:43.:09:47.

The Daily Mail have got just one super-rich tax cheat nailed in seven

:09:48.:09:51.

years. 2012, this person was prosecuted in

:09:52.:09:57.

2012. They have 380 people working as part of this team and apparently

:09:58.:10:02.

it is racking up a bill of ?15 million. You've got to think, we

:10:03.:10:08.

mentioned earlier, the people being investigated, there must have

:10:09.:10:11.

knowledgeable lawyers, they must know how to kind of get themselves

:10:12.:10:16.

out of it. But for the average man or woman working on the street,

:10:17.:10:21.

cleaners, bus drivers, who will see this article and thinking, hang on a

:10:22.:10:29.

minute, why am I working? 380 people employed to get one conviction in

:10:30.:10:33.

all of these years. If any other organisation was so inefficient it

:10:34.:10:36.

would be closed. It is shocking, particularly when small businesses

:10:37.:10:40.

are being targeted, maybe two or three people working all the hours

:10:41.:10:43.

that God sends to earn money and people with the money to pay for

:10:44.:10:46.

very flash lawyers are getting off apparently scot-free. The question

:10:47.:10:51.

that is to be answered is why isn't HMRC doing more? That annual bill,

:10:52.:10:59.

?50 million, a lot could be done with that money. We're living in

:11:00.:11:02.

towns of austerity, Brexit, the pound is in a peculiar position. ?50

:11:03.:11:08.

million could go a long way. They could pay Gareth Bale for a week!

:11:09.:11:12.

LAUGHTER The last paper is the Guardian, they

:11:13.:11:15.

have an exclusive interview with the head of MI5. In the whole days --

:11:16.:11:22.

the old days he would never have given an interview. We have seen the

:11:23.:11:28.

Bond film where he or she is known as Mand now we know what he looks

:11:29.:11:32.

like he gave an unexpected speech at the Royal Society of Arts as you say

:11:33.:11:35.

it's the first time a serving head has given an interview in 107 years.

:11:36.:11:39.

There are lots of interesting revelations. He says there is a

:11:40.:11:43.

growing threat to the UK of cyber attacks from Russia. He said we are

:11:44.:11:47.

perhaps being distracted by so-called IS, and while we are

:11:48.:11:50.

looking over their Russia is coming over here, blocking our computers,

:11:51.:11:55.

messing with our businesses. We sort of knew that, didn't we? Is it a

:11:56.:12:00.

revelation? He says it is much more prevalent than we thought. He says

:12:01.:12:04.

Russia seems to define itself as against the West and it is

:12:05.:12:09.

manifesting that in messing up the West's business. And apparently

:12:10.:12:13.

meddling in the American election. The timing of this piece with what

:12:14.:12:16.

is going on in our lapel as well. One interesting fact that he

:12:17.:12:19.

mentioned, which was good, he said his aim was to have a gender balance

:12:20.:12:26.

and recruit more people from ethnic minority backgrounds. Within MI5?

:12:27.:12:32.

Which is a good thing. Why is it taking so long quiz --?. The threat

:12:33.:12:42.

of what is happening with Russia, that needs to be investigated. I

:12:43.:12:47.

suppose we deal need to know about it.

:12:48.:12:49.

Read the Guardian and you can find out more about what the head of MI5

:12:50.:12:54.

thinks.. Open the e-mail with Russian letters because it's bound

:12:55.:12:57.

to be a trap. It is still in my inbox! Thank you James and Edward.

:12:58.:13:05.

Thank you for joining us. That is it from The Papers, all of the front

:13:06.:13:07.

pages are online on the BBC website.

:13:08.:13:12.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
