Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be
With me are joined by Laura Hughes political correspondent
at the Daily Telegraph and David Davies, broadcaster.
The Telegraph says the Justice Secretary Liz Truss will scrap plans
to reduce the number of prison officers, amid concerns over rising
The Times leads on the pension blackhole at BHS,
reporting that Sir Philip Green and his wife face a demand
for hundreds of millions of pounds from the regulator.
Brexit leads the Daily Express, as the government waits for a ruling
on Parliament's role in the process of leaving the EU.
The paper also forecasts a drop in the temperature is on its way.
The Guardian also has that story about an extra 2,500
frontline prison staff to be recruited
to tackle soaring levels of crime inside jails.
It shows Sir Edwin Landseer's The Monarch of the Glen,
The Metro leads on the FA decision to flout a ruling by FIFA to ban
England and Scotland from wearing poppies when they play a World Cup
The Daily Mirror also reports on the BHS pension black hole. And The
Daily Star speculates about whether Cheryl Cole is expecting a baby. So
many different conversations. LAUGHTER
We can start with the conversation that the Daily Telegraph is trying
to inspire, prisons, cuts scrapped, reoffending rates have been soaring.
Crime behind bars. This is Liz Truss making a huge date then, this is a
massive intervention, -- a huge statement. She is saying cuts were
made and there was a massive reduction in the number of offices
and the impact has been disasters and we have had people warning about
a bloodbath. The -- disastrous. She will introduce more prison officers,
another 2500, which will cost 100 formalin pounds to tackle this. --
100 formalin pounds. She wants to tackle reoffending levels, which are
increasing, and that is a big cost to the public purse. She will
introduce something like Ofsted, prisons are going to be inspected
and they will be marked, the public can see how their local prison is
doing and if they are falling short and they are not tackling issues
with drugs and they are not educating their prisoners and they
are not leaving and going on and getting jobs, they can have the
governor removed, almost like a school. The government as of
tomorrow has announced they will have a legal obligation to do this.
This is a very big issue and many people are very unhappy about this.
Overcrowding is also a problem. Of course. Remind me, this is your
story, on the front page of your story did it take -- on the front
page of your paper, but for how long has the Conservatives been the
Labour Party in government, and the party in power for 18 months to has
been the party in government. Hospital visits as a result of self
harm up considerably. Half of offenders in England and Wales go on
to commit another crime within a year of release. For how many years
have people been looking at what is wrong with our prisons? And we have
made them worse. I don't mean to give you a hard time but you did
write the article. The other issue, who wants to be a prison officer? I
know a couple and they hate their job, they come home in tears and
they suffer from stress. Not an easy job. All right to say they are going
to get more prison officers. The new bit is the intervention, we will
intervene, we will remove you as a governor if you don't fit these new
standards, we will make these reports and the public will have
access. This problem is old and it is growing. I think many of these
measures are going to be new. Where are the prison officers going to
come from? She is the Prime Minister, she just write the
article! It is a terrific article, by the way. Seriously, you worry
about that. It is a subject, should it really be a political issue? It
should be something successive governments have failed on this
subject. Prisons are not just about punishment, they are about
rehabilitation. Some material for tomorrow. Thank you. Don't mention
it. Staying with the Daily Telegraph, diesel cars facing
charges. A think tank telling us of how to deal with it, diesel engines
coming into our cities and polluting air after years of being told they
should not do that at all. We are failing to meet European emission
standards which is what is behind this. Very disappointing. The AA and
RAC pointing this out, how many years ago, we were told that diesel
cars were good for the environment and good for us and there were perks
if you drove diesel cars. They were wrong. Nitrogen dioxide. Lead up the
garden path. There was a ruling in court where a high judge said you
have failed to reach your emission targets and you are going to have to
look again at what you are going to do and this is where this has come
from today. It is not just people that own cars privately, we are
talking about cabbies and buses. Trains as well. To try and just
penalise people for bringing a diesel engine into the city is not
going to work. We have got to change public transport. The story says
government sources said there would be a period of scientific testing
before new legislation was confirmed. One wonders how long that
might be. If it saves lives, it has got to be done. The Daily Mail,
poppy war, they call it. England will wear their tribute to our
valiant dead. The BBC was told that by the FA as well. Fifa in the
spotlight again. Yes, in 2011, and then there was a compromise
supported by Fifa, and the other international sporting government
bodies which allowed armbands with poppies in them to be worn.
Extraordinary rumpus for the new regime, and it is a new regime at
Fifa, to get themselves involved in. I support the suggestion tonight
from the FA in England and Scotland that they will defy this and they
will take whatever punishment Fifa Hansa. I hope very much that my
successors at the FA, our successes, now they have a week and a half
until the match, on Friday we, that they go out now and get the support
of other major European countries like Germany, dare I say it, for
their action that they are taking, because I have the actual rule which
is what is driving this. Players equipment should not carry any
political, religious or commercial messages. Poppy does not come into
of those categories. It is about remembering sacrifice and that was
it. For some people, it is a political statement, some people
feel it represents war and senseless death. You could, some people would
argue, that it does, the fact we went to war, almost a celebration,
some might say, of going to war. I don't know. If it was an individual
player who said they don't want to do it, fine, I got no difficulty.
Jeremy Corbyn got a hard time, there was controversy. It is down to
choice, not everyone chooses to wear a poppy, they might donate money to
the Royal British Legion. They have no choice, these players, they have
been told. Just a minute. A player, in my estimation, if he chose... Or
surely, if they chose, the women's team is a big thing, they were third
in the World Cup, they might have a big decision to take in the future
and I hope that people would give individuals that choice. A quick
look at the Independent. Key battle grounds in the United States.
Yes, key battle ground states, very close. Questions are being asked,
who is going to win, and this comes as Obama intervenes and he says the
world is at stake. He implicitly has a geek at the head of the FBI -- has
a dig. He is trying. He's begging young voters to go out and register.
It is all about who goes out. About turnout. I've come back from
America, this extraordinary soap opera is doing wonders for the
ratings of the news channels and harming the ratings for sports
channels and films. That's another thing. This headline, the edition I
did states. Whoever wins, how are they going to stand up on Wednesday,
a week today, and say let's now unite together after some of the
things that have been said. Donald Trump, if he wins, he will have do
pursue his own going to take Hillary Clinton to court. Not just that.
It's the people of America and how they react. Concerns about that. We
have three minutes. The Daily Mirror. Very quick turnaround for
their front page. ?300 million blow to Seville or green. -- Sir Philip
Green. Who are his advisers and as he listen to them? It must be quite
a job. He basically has been told that what he is offering, sources
say he offered to pay around ?200 million but watchdog chiefs are
insisting on ?300 million. Sir Philip Green says he has read the
statement and noted the contents and he says he has provided the
regulator with what he believes to be a substantial proposal. This
would prevent the scheme from entering the pension protection
fund, in order to achieve a better outcome for the BHS pensioners. He
feels he has a better alternative than the outcome of it going into
the pension protection fund, I read that as being. The pressure remains
on Sir Philip Green. The Daily Express now. A couple of stories.
The usual ones, Brexit and the weather. Brexit, Brexit. Tomorrow we
will have a ruling on the court case, people have challenged Theresa
May's right to formally trigger Article 50 and our withdrawal from
the EU and campaigners have gone to court and say they do not have the
right and Parliament should get a vote before Article 50 is triggered.
This story suggests the government's case not be defeated, they have
argued that if MPs wanted to take away this royal prerogative they
could have put a clause in the legislation saying that they want a
vote, but no one did that. That is their argument. This is the
tradition and that is what is going to happen. It was always going to go
to the Supreme Court, whatever side they rule on tomorrow. Brexit means
Brexit, but no one knows when. Exactly. The main campaigners might
say the two stories are connected, winter is coming -- Remoaners might
say the stories are connected. Europe's fault! LAUGHTER
According to the weather forecasters, the daily press have
got it right this time, the frost is coming. -- the Daily Express. They
have obviously worked out that when they talk about the weather they
sell more copies of the paper. A real mixture of stories.
Don't forget all the front pages are online on the BBC News website
