Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Hugo Rifkind, columnist for The Times,

:00:17.:00:19.

Welcome to you both. Let's kick off by showing you the front pages we

:00:20.:00:34.

have at the moment. The Times says Donald Trump has seized the lead for

:00:35.:00:38.

the White House according to one new poll.

:00:39.:00:40.

The Metro leads with the story of the Iranian asylum seeker who has

:00:41.:00:43.

made it to Britain after paddling from France in a canoe.

:00:44.:00:46.

He was eight miles off the Kent coast when he was picked up

:00:47.:00:49.

The Financial Times says the Chancellor of the Exchequer,

:00:50.:00:52.

Philip Hammond, is seeking the approval of cabinet colleagues

:00:53.:00:55.

to abandon rigid financial targets in his Autumn Statement,

:00:56.:00:57.

in case he needs to protect the economy from Brexit fall-out.

:00:58.:01:02.

The Telegraph leads on what it says was fury after MPs voted

:01:03.:01:06.

to re-appoint Keith Vaz to an important committee

:01:07.:01:08.

Mr Vaz resigned from the committee only weeks ago after a sex scandal.

:01:09.:01:14.

The Guardian says white families are being urged to move to areas

:01:15.:01:21.

of ethnic diversity, to avoid segregation

:01:22.:01:22.

The Mirror reports Dale Cregan, who is in secure hospital for committing

:01:23.:01:40.

four murders is living the life of luxury eating pizza and going

:01:41.:01:45.

kayaking. Let's start off with the Guardian. You go, on their front

:01:46.:01:50.

page, the battle for Mosul. Iraqi troops going into the city for the

:01:51.:01:54.

first time. It has been an Islamic stronghold for the last couple of

:01:55.:01:59.

years. How significant think this is? Very significant. It is part of

:02:00.:02:04.

a big push into Iraq. It is not just that they are about to retake the

:02:05.:02:11.

city, it is also sunny tribal fighters and Shia militias around

:02:12.:02:15.

the other side of the city preventing Islamic State fighters

:02:16.:02:18.

from fleeing into the desert. They are not just trying to retake

:02:19.:02:22.

territory, they are trying to have a final big push to squash the Islamic

:02:23.:02:29.

State. It is interesting, this is obviously happening in der Rice at a

:02:30.:02:33.

very media friendly way. They are keen for the eyes of the world to be

:02:34.:02:38.

on this -- in der Rice say it, a very media friendly way. In Iraqi it

:02:39.:02:47.

is possible to see this. In Syria the fight against Islamic State is

:02:48.:02:53.

only a small part of the fight. There are Assad forces against

:02:54.:02:57.

Syrian rebel forces. Here, it is sense of an invading army we are

:02:58.:03:04.

talking about 600,000 people who have not been able to flee. We are

:03:05.:03:09.

talking about a very large death toll, I think, because we are

:03:10.:03:12.

already seeing reports from people who are living in the city 's and we

:03:13.:03:18.

have been used to smart bombs and surgical strikes in previous wars in

:03:19.:03:22.

the middle east, but in this case it will be not quite hand-to-hand but

:03:23.:03:28.

it will be door-to-door, street to street and this is the real worry.

:03:29.:03:33.

An awful lot of civilians who have nothing to do the fighting will be

:03:34.:03:39.

killed. The Guardian also, the main story is the ethnic divide in

:03:40.:03:44.

British cities is growing rapidly. They are talking about ethnic

:03:45.:03:47.

segregation in towns and cities. Usually we are talking about

:03:48.:03:55.

minorities who do not want to integrate into the majorities and

:03:56.:04:00.

people of Asian backgrounds and Afro-Caribbean 's should integrate.

:04:01.:04:04.

But here we are talking about a report from a professor who did a

:04:05.:04:07.

landmark report after the Bradford riots in 2001 and he says large

:04:08.:04:12.

numbers of white people are leaving our inner-city urban areas by a

:04:13.:04:17.

colossal numbers and in some parts of the country like Slough, the

:04:18.:04:22.

white population fell from the gate .3% in 1991 down to 34.5% -- 50 8.3%

:04:23.:04:34.

in 99 to one. In black perm just 7.8% of the population is white --

:04:35.:04:47.

in black burn, just 7.8% of the population is white. He is not

:04:48.:04:51.

putting this down to white flight and distrust of foreigners. He

:04:52.:04:54.

thinks it might be to do with other reasons. A sense that you want to be

:04:55.:05:00.

in the countryside, it might be to do with other motivations like house

:05:01.:05:04.

prices. Is it a changing face of Britain, do you think? What is

:05:05.:05:11.

interesting is when you have increasing segregation, it does seem

:05:12.:05:14.

to be to do with white community is leaving for whatever reason. Some of

:05:15.:05:19.

the numbers you get further down, it seems to be particularly a case

:05:20.:05:22.

where you have small white communities. Perhaps white

:05:23.:05:26.

communities do not like being part of small white communities. We have

:05:27.:05:32.

a 60% white community they are staying put. Some of the numbers you

:05:33.:05:39.

have a drop from 30% to 7% in two decades. That is very significant.

:05:40.:05:43.

There is some kind of trend but it does not say what the trend is. Who

:05:44.:05:50.

knows. Let's go to America. They have one opinion poll which I

:05:51.:05:54.

mentioned in our look ahead, this is one old giving trump lead after so

:05:55.:05:59.

many polls which have shown him way behind Hillary Clinton. Is that

:06:00.:06:07.

significant or is it a blip? It is probably both! It is making him look

:06:08.:06:18.

stronger than he is. There are no new allegations against Hillary

:06:19.:06:21.

Clinton. They are poorly understood and not substantial. What has

:06:22.:06:25.

happened is the FBI said they had new lines of enquiry into what had

:06:26.:06:28.

been an investigation that they had closed because they had uncovered

:06:29.:06:34.

new e-mails. They may not even be new. A different cache of e-mails.

:06:35.:06:40.

They are approaching it from a different direction. The mere fact

:06:41.:06:44.

that this investigation is ongoing seems to be hitting the Clinton

:06:45.:06:48.

campaign hard. Whether that will last, who knows? It is volatile. Is

:06:49.:06:56.

it enough to give Donald Trump victory? No, he will have to get

:06:57.:07:00.

every single angry white man, every single angry white woman, all the

:07:01.:07:06.

uneducated people he likes, get rid of all the Hispanic votes, there is

:07:07.:07:16.

it easy reports that African-Americans have less

:07:17.:07:22.

enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton then Barack Obama which is expected. I

:07:23.:07:25.

think the African-American community will come out in huge numbers. The

:07:26.:07:32.

Telegraph has this story about Keith Vaz. He was mired in scandal but he

:07:33.:07:38.

has bounced back. He is on another parliamentary committee. They say

:07:39.:07:44.

there is theory, I think it is the paper which is furious. 200 and

:07:45.:07:49.

something MPs voted to allow Keith Vaz to be on this committee, seven

:07:50.:07:53.

voted against so it was a major majority. It is not really about

:07:54.:07:57.

Keith Vaz this. There is a convention that MPs do not oppose

:07:58.:08:02.

party appointees select committees and they are trying to preserve

:08:03.:08:06.

that. In which case, we will not any more about it! Let's go to the

:08:07.:08:15.

Financial Times. They are talking about if the effects of Brexit could

:08:16.:08:24.

rise. This is about the abandonment of his predecessor. He is talking

:08:25.:08:38.

about a modest fiscal stimulus. He wants to loosen the rules. We are

:08:39.:08:42.

hearing about this in other areas of government as well. It is about not

:08:43.:08:48.

expecting rabbits out of hats and he wants head room in case Brexit will

:08:49.:08:52.

hit growth. That will surprise some of the Brexit peers who have said

:08:53.:08:59.

all the plans have been brilliant but he wants to take a long view.

:09:00.:09:05.

Hammond is the interesting figure of the government. He is the softest

:09:06.:09:14.

Brexiteer and he will not pull a rabbit out of the hat. He wants

:09:15.:09:17.

people to know what will be in his announcement before he makes it. So

:09:18.:09:24.

we are seeing the rabbit. It has already been cooked a lot of

:09:25.:09:29.

metaphors about rabbits, I don't think I follow them all. And

:09:30.:09:37.

Australia does not like doctors any more. -- do not need doctors any

:09:38.:09:44.

more. If you think about going to Australia they do not need you.

:09:45.:09:50.

There had been a rush of British doctors applying to work in

:09:51.:09:54.

Australia after the junior doctors strikes. Australia is now full up

:09:55.:09:59.

with doctors. They require no more British doctors. They have a lot

:10:00.:10:06.

there already so they don't need any more? That is pretty much the

:10:07.:10:13.

situation. Now the Guardian has a story about car insurance. They look

:10:14.:10:18.

through your Facebook account to see what sort of driver you might be?

:10:19.:10:24.

This is Admiral and they stressed it is not a compulsory scheme. It will

:10:25.:10:28.

offer discounts to people whose Facebook posts demonstrate they are

:10:29.:10:33.

good, sensible, that you are thinking people. We are talking

:10:34.:10:38.

about mainly first-time drivers. They will look at character traits

:10:39.:10:44.

like writing in short, con sais sentences and making arrangements to

:10:45.:10:50.

meet people at a set time or place in so saying whatever, wherever

:10:51.:10:53.

which shows you will be devil may care. You will drive too fast. You

:10:54.:11:01.

can't be trusted! It is a bit intrusive? It is not compulsory. It

:11:02.:11:07.

does not matter because you can opt to pay more and not allow your

:11:08.:11:13.

insurer to do this. It is this nudge where you are expecting to disclose

:11:14.:11:20.

it. The strong incentive is to do this stuff because there is a

:11:21.:11:24.

financial penalty if you don't. And maybe you do need to be careful

:11:25.:11:28.

about what you do post on Facebook. Employers apparently go through your

:11:29.:11:34.

younger life on Facebook, pictures of you getting drunk and maybe think

:11:35.:11:38.

they will not hire you on that basis. I think more and more schools

:11:39.:11:43.

will be telling young people to be careful about their online digital

:11:44.:11:49.

footprint and it may bite you. Online digital footprint, that is

:11:50.:11:54.

what I should have said, that is the terminology! I am a millennial, do

:11:55.:12:00.

you know?! Not really! We are almost at the Times which has this

:12:01.:12:05.

extraordinary story about Lord Heseltine and the curious incident

:12:06.:12:09.

of the dog and Lord Heseltine. You go, tell us the story. This is my

:12:10.:12:17.

favourite story of the day. This morning, the magazine Tatler has an

:12:18.:12:20.

interview with Michael Heseltine in which he appeared to have claimed

:12:21.:12:24.

that earlier in his life he strangled to death his mother's

:12:25.:12:29.

Alsatian. This was back in the 1960s. Sounds like a headline you

:12:30.:12:35.

use to get on the day-to-day. This was an enormous fuss for a few hours

:12:36.:12:39.

earlier this morning. It then emerged he had strangled the

:12:40.:12:43.

Alsatian but not to death. He merely calmed it down by strangling it

:12:44.:12:47.

which apparently you can do because it had bitten him. His wife was

:12:48.:12:54.

pregnant and he was worried that his wife. If you bite Michael has all

:12:55.:13:02.

time he will strangle you! And then he will get the vet to put you down.

:13:03.:13:11.

It is a great newspaper story. Plays into the sense of tar sand through

:13:12.:13:15.

the jungle fighting lions and political assassinations and canine

:13:16.:13:21.

assassinations -- Parvin. Dog bites man is not a story, man throttles

:13:22.:13:29.

dog is a story. A lot of people may be upset about the idea of a pet dog

:13:30.:13:36.

being strangled. He did appear to say earlier this month that he and

:13:37.:13:41.

his wife shot 350 grey squirrels over the course of six months which

:13:42.:13:48.

is a lot. But no dogs. And Tatler have clarified the story. They

:13:49.:13:52.

accept he did not kill the dog that day. He merely hurt it. It was a vet

:13:53.:14:02.

the next bed. You really should not laugh for that story. Hugo and

:14:03.:14:03.

Henry, thank you for being with us. Don't forget all the front pages

:14:04.:14:07.

are online on the BBC News website where you can read a detailed review

:14:08.:14:12.

of the papers. It's all there for you -

:14:13.:14:15.

seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers -

:14:16.:14:17.

and you can see us there too - with each night's edition

:14:18.:14:20.

of The Papers being posted on the page shortly

:14:21.:14:22.

after we've finished. Well, it is time to get the thicker

:14:23.:14:40.

coats out. There is colder weather on the way. We will certainly feel

:14:41.:14:45.

that over the next few days. The warm weather we had

:14:46.:14:47.
