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

:00:16.:00:19.

With me are joined by Laura Hughes political correspondent

:00:20.:00:25.

at the Daily Telegraph and David Davies, broadcaster.

:00:26.:00:27.

The Telegraph says the Justice Secretary Liz Truss will scrap plans

:00:28.:00:48.

to reduce the number of prison officers, amid concerns over rising

:00:49.:00:50.

The Times leads on the pension blackhole at BHS,

:00:51.:00:53.

reporting that Sir Philip Green and his wife face a demand

:00:54.:00:56.

for hundreds of millions of pounds from the regulator.

:00:57.:00:58.

Brexit leads the Daily Express, as the government waits for a ruling

:00:59.:01:01.

on Parliament's role in the process of leaving the EU.

:01:02.:01:03.

The paper also forecasts a drop in the temperature is on its way.

:01:04.:01:07.

The Guardian also has that story about an extra 2,500

:01:08.:01:09.

frontline prison staff to be recruited

:01:10.:01:11.

to tackle soaring levels of crime inside jails.

:01:12.:01:13.

It shows Sir Edwin Landseer's The Monarch of the Glen,

:01:14.:01:22.

The Metro leads on the FA decision to flout a ruling by FIFA to ban

:01:23.:01:25.

England and Scotland from wearing poppies when they play a World Cup

:01:26.:01:28.

The Daily Mirror also reports on the BHS pension black hole. And The

:01:29.:01:34.

Daily Star speculates about whether Cheryl Cole is expecting a baby. So

:01:35.:01:38.

many different conversations. LAUGHTER

:01:39.:01:44.

We can start with the conversation that the Daily Telegraph is trying

:01:45.:01:51.

to inspire, prisons, cuts scrapped, reoffending rates have been soaring.

:01:52.:02:00.

Crime behind bars. This is Liz Truss making a huge date then, this is a

:02:01.:02:04.

massive intervention, -- a huge statement. She is saying cuts were

:02:05.:02:10.

made and there was a massive reduction in the number of offices

:02:11.:02:14.

and the impact has been disasters and we have had people warning about

:02:15.:02:21.

a bloodbath. The -- disastrous. She will introduce more prison officers,

:02:22.:02:25.

another 2500, which will cost 100 formalin pounds to tackle this. --

:02:26.:02:35.

100 formalin pounds. She wants to tackle reoffending levels, which are

:02:36.:02:38.

increasing, and that is a big cost to the public purse. She will

:02:39.:02:43.

introduce something like Ofsted, prisons are going to be inspected

:02:44.:02:46.

and they will be marked, the public can see how their local prison is

:02:47.:02:51.

doing and if they are falling short and they are not tackling issues

:02:52.:02:54.

with drugs and they are not educating their prisoners and they

:02:55.:02:56.

are not leaving and going on and getting jobs, they can have the

:02:57.:03:00.

governor removed, almost like a school. The government as of

:03:01.:03:04.

tomorrow has announced they will have a legal obligation to do this.

:03:05.:03:09.

This is a very big issue and many people are very unhappy about this.

:03:10.:03:14.

Overcrowding is also a problem. Of course. Remind me, this is your

:03:15.:03:20.

story, on the front page of your story did it take -- on the front

:03:21.:03:29.

page of your paper, but for how long has the Conservatives been the

:03:30.:03:36.

Labour Party in government, and the party in power for 18 months to has

:03:37.:03:42.

been the party in government. Hospital visits as a result of self

:03:43.:03:54.

harm up considerably. Half of offenders in England and Wales go on

:03:55.:03:58.

to commit another crime within a year of release. For how many years

:03:59.:04:04.

have people been looking at what is wrong with our prisons? And we have

:04:05.:04:10.

made them worse. I don't mean to give you a hard time but you did

:04:11.:04:16.

write the article. The other issue, who wants to be a prison officer? I

:04:17.:04:21.

know a couple and they hate their job, they come home in tears and

:04:22.:04:24.

they suffer from stress. Not an easy job. All right to say they are going

:04:25.:04:34.

to get more prison officers. The new bit is the intervention, we will

:04:35.:04:39.

intervene, we will remove you as a governor if you don't fit these new

:04:40.:04:42.

standards, we will make these reports and the public will have

:04:43.:04:47.

access. This problem is old and it is growing. I think many of these

:04:48.:04:55.

measures are going to be new. Where are the prison officers going to

:04:56.:05:00.

come from? She is the Prime Minister, she just write the

:05:01.:05:04.

article! It is a terrific article, by the way. Seriously, you worry

:05:05.:05:12.

about that. It is a subject, should it really be a political issue? It

:05:13.:05:16.

should be something successive governments have failed on this

:05:17.:05:23.

subject. Prisons are not just about punishment, they are about

:05:24.:05:26.

rehabilitation. Some material for tomorrow. Thank you. Don't mention

:05:27.:05:33.

it. Staying with the Daily Telegraph, diesel cars facing

:05:34.:05:42.

charges. A think tank telling us of how to deal with it, diesel engines

:05:43.:05:46.

coming into our cities and polluting air after years of being told they

:05:47.:05:51.

should not do that at all. We are failing to meet European emission

:05:52.:05:55.

standards which is what is behind this. Very disappointing. The AA and

:05:56.:06:03.

RAC pointing this out, how many years ago, we were told that diesel

:06:04.:06:07.

cars were good for the environment and good for us and there were perks

:06:08.:06:11.

if you drove diesel cars. They were wrong. Nitrogen dioxide. Lead up the

:06:12.:06:21.

garden path. There was a ruling in court where a high judge said you

:06:22.:06:24.

have failed to reach your emission targets and you are going to have to

:06:25.:06:27.

look again at what you are going to do and this is where this has come

:06:28.:06:33.

from today. It is not just people that own cars privately, we are

:06:34.:06:38.

talking about cabbies and buses. Trains as well. To try and just

:06:39.:06:44.

penalise people for bringing a diesel engine into the city is not

:06:45.:06:48.

going to work. We have got to change public transport. The story says

:06:49.:06:54.

government sources said there would be a period of scientific testing

:06:55.:06:58.

before new legislation was confirmed. One wonders how long that

:06:59.:07:05.

might be. If it saves lives, it has got to be done. The Daily Mail,

:07:06.:07:14.

poppy war, they call it. England will wear their tribute to our

:07:15.:07:20.

valiant dead. The BBC was told that by the FA as well. Fifa in the

:07:21.:07:28.

spotlight again. Yes, in 2011, and then there was a compromise

:07:29.:07:34.

supported by Fifa, and the other international sporting government

:07:35.:07:39.

bodies which allowed armbands with poppies in them to be worn.

:07:40.:07:44.

Extraordinary rumpus for the new regime, and it is a new regime at

:07:45.:07:50.

Fifa, to get themselves involved in. I support the suggestion tonight

:07:51.:07:58.

from the FA in England and Scotland that they will defy this and they

:07:59.:08:00.

will take whatever punishment Fifa Hansa. I hope very much that my

:08:01.:08:09.

successors at the FA, our successes, now they have a week and a half

:08:10.:08:13.

until the match, on Friday we, that they go out now and get the support

:08:14.:08:18.

of other major European countries like Germany, dare I say it, for

:08:19.:08:27.

their action that they are taking, because I have the actual rule which

:08:28.:08:33.

is what is driving this. Players equipment should not carry any

:08:34.:08:38.

political, religious or commercial messages. Poppy does not come into

:08:39.:08:44.

of those categories. It is about remembering sacrifice and that was

:08:45.:08:49.

it. For some people, it is a political statement, some people

:08:50.:08:52.

feel it represents war and senseless death. You could, some people would

:08:53.:08:59.

argue, that it does, the fact we went to war, almost a celebration,

:09:00.:09:04.

some might say, of going to war. I don't know. If it was an individual

:09:05.:09:11.

player who said they don't want to do it, fine, I got no difficulty.

:09:12.:09:16.

Jeremy Corbyn got a hard time, there was controversy. It is down to

:09:17.:09:22.

choice, not everyone chooses to wear a poppy, they might donate money to

:09:23.:09:27.

the Royal British Legion. They have no choice, these players, they have

:09:28.:09:34.

been told. Just a minute. A player, in my estimation, if he chose... Or

:09:35.:09:45.

surely, if they chose, the women's team is a big thing, they were third

:09:46.:09:51.

in the World Cup, they might have a big decision to take in the future

:09:52.:09:54.

and I hope that people would give individuals that choice. A quick

:09:55.:10:03.

look at the Independent. Key battle grounds in the United States.

:10:04.:10:15.

Yes, key battle ground states, very close. Questions are being asked,

:10:16.:10:24.

who is going to win, and this comes as Obama intervenes and he says the

:10:25.:10:27.

world is at stake. He implicitly has a geek at the head of the FBI -- has

:10:28.:10:44.

a dig. He is trying. He's begging young voters to go out and register.

:10:45.:10:49.

It is all about who goes out. About turnout. I've come back from

:10:50.:10:54.

America, this extraordinary soap opera is doing wonders for the

:10:55.:11:00.

ratings of the news channels and harming the ratings for sports

:11:01.:11:03.

channels and films. That's another thing. This headline, the edition I

:11:04.:11:11.

did states. Whoever wins, how are they going to stand up on Wednesday,

:11:12.:11:18.

a week today, and say let's now unite together after some of the

:11:19.:11:21.

things that have been said. Donald Trump, if he wins, he will have do

:11:22.:11:27.

pursue his own going to take Hillary Clinton to court. Not just that.

:11:28.:11:33.

It's the people of America and how they react. Concerns about that. We

:11:34.:11:39.

have three minutes. The Daily Mirror. Very quick turnaround for

:11:40.:11:47.

their front page. ?300 million blow to Seville or green. -- Sir Philip

:11:48.:11:57.

Green. Who are his advisers and as he listen to them? It must be quite

:11:58.:12:05.

a job. He basically has been told that what he is offering, sources

:12:06.:12:16.

say he offered to pay around ?200 million but watchdog chiefs are

:12:17.:12:20.

insisting on ?300 million. Sir Philip Green says he has read the

:12:21.:12:24.

statement and noted the contents and he says he has provided the

:12:25.:12:27.

regulator with what he believes to be a substantial proposal. This

:12:28.:12:35.

would prevent the scheme from entering the pension protection

:12:36.:12:37.

fund, in order to achieve a better outcome for the BHS pensioners. He

:12:38.:12:41.

feels he has a better alternative than the outcome of it going into

:12:42.:12:46.

the pension protection fund, I read that as being. The pressure remains

:12:47.:12:54.

on Sir Philip Green. The Daily Express now. A couple of stories.

:12:55.:13:00.

The usual ones, Brexit and the weather. Brexit, Brexit. Tomorrow we

:13:01.:13:06.

will have a ruling on the court case, people have challenged Theresa

:13:07.:13:16.

May's right to formally trigger Article 50 and our withdrawal from

:13:17.:13:22.

the EU and campaigners have gone to court and say they do not have the

:13:23.:13:26.

right and Parliament should get a vote before Article 50 is triggered.

:13:27.:13:32.

This story suggests the government's case not be defeated, they have

:13:33.:13:36.

argued that if MPs wanted to take away this royal prerogative they

:13:37.:13:45.

could have put a clause in the legislation saying that they want a

:13:46.:13:47.

vote, but no one did that. That is their argument. This is the

:13:48.:13:52.

tradition and that is what is going to happen. It was always going to go

:13:53.:13:56.

to the Supreme Court, whatever side they rule on tomorrow. Brexit means

:13:57.:14:01.

Brexit, but no one knows when. Exactly. The main campaigners might

:14:02.:14:11.

say the two stories are connected, winter is coming -- Remoaners might

:14:12.:14:23.

say the stories are connected. Europe's fault! LAUGHTER

:14:24.:14:30.

According to the weather forecasters, the daily press have

:14:31.:14:33.

got it right this time, the frost is coming. -- the Daily Express. They

:14:34.:14:40.

have obviously worked out that when they talk about the weather they

:14:41.:14:44.

sell more copies of the paper. A real mixture of stories.

:14:45.:14:49.

Don't forget all the front pages are online on the BBC News website

:14:50.:14:54.

where you can read a detailed review of the papers.

:14:55.:14:56.

It's all there for you - 7 days a week

:14:57.:15:04.

And you can see us there too -

:15:05.:15:10.

with each night's edition of The Papers being posted

:15:11.:15:12.

on the page shortly after we've finished.
