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

:00:12.:00:15.

With me are journalist and broadcaster Rachel Shabi

:00:16.:00:19.

and Deputy Political editor at The Telegraph Ben Riley-Smith.

:00:20.:00:21.

Metro leads with the news the British public have helped raise

:00:22.:00:34.

more than ?75,000 for the family of the murdered Polish lorry driver who

:00:35.:00:38.

is a vehicle was hijacked and used in the Berlin terror attack. The

:00:39.:00:43.

Times says the Queen is apparently disappointed with Theresa May after

:00:44.:00:46.

the PM declined to share plans for Brexit during her first stay at

:00:47.:00:51.

Balmoral. The Financial Times says China has warned Donald Trump that

:00:52.:00:56.

after the US President-elect after the US President-elect

:00:57.:01:02.

appointed a trial run a new what trade talks. The watch they claim

:01:03.:01:07.

that saw Britain cosmic leading overseas are no-go zones for Jewish

:01:08.:01:11.

students due to add Semitism and The Mirror lead with the story of

:01:12.:01:13.

shoppers diving for cover as e-cigarette batteries blow up inches

:01:14.:01:19.

from a pram. The Guardian says of violent and abusive men are being

:01:20.:01:22.

allowed to confront and cross examine their former partners in

:01:23.:01:27.

secretive court hearings and the Daily Express warns that the UK

:01:28.:01:30.

faces of violent Christmas storms with 90 mile hour gales and

:01:31.:01:35.

torrential rain. Not so good if you are in a sleigh. That wasn't very

:01:36.:01:42.

funny riddle and you make that clear with that expression on your face.

:01:43.:01:47.

Thank you. It was festive! To slow reaction. It was amazing. I will

:01:48.:01:53.

start with you. On the Berlin suspect suicide attack offer. The

:01:54.:01:59.

front page of The Daily Telegraph. Watch this story? This is the story

:02:00.:02:04.

that apparently has been reported in Speigel magazine saying that Janice

:02:05.:02:10.

Amri, the suspect in the Berlin terrorist attack, was her overheard

:02:11.:02:19.

by surveillance offering to carry out the suicide attack, overheard

:02:20.:02:23.

because security were monitoring unknown radical preacher -- a known

:02:24.:02:29.

radical preacher which is how the whole of the information. We have to

:02:30.:02:33.

be careful with these stories, there is always a tendency after the event

:02:34.:02:38.

sort of right it backwards and say, there was a sign, there was a sign,

:02:39.:02:42.

there was a sign, security is not good enough. There is always this

:02:43.:02:46.

balance between security surveillance doing its job and the

:02:47.:02:54.

urge, people are scared and we want answers and we want to feel safe but

:02:55.:03:00.

we also have to resist the urge to either blame security or suggest

:03:01.:03:05.

they don't have enough powers. There is a very delicate handling of this

:03:06.:03:11.

reporting that has to happen. Absolutely right and Angela Merkel

:03:12.:03:15.

has today said she is proud of how the reasonable and, measured way

:03:16.:03:19.

that the Germans have responded to this. As Rachel says, you cannot

:03:20.:03:26.

rush to judgment and say that the police and authorities must have

:03:27.:03:31.

more powers, but the powers they did have come at the Germans, they kept

:03:32.:03:34.

this man under surveillance for several months and decided not to

:03:35.:03:40.

continue that operation. He could not be deported because they

:03:41.:03:44.

couldn't get his passport in time from Tunisia. There are legitimate

:03:45.:03:50.

questions. And he's still out there. 48 after. Here what you are saying

:03:51.:03:54.

and there is always a thing with Russian to judgment but the string

:03:55.:03:57.

of claims coming out are pretty serious. Firstly they heard him say

:03:58.:04:03.

a few months ago he wanted to carry a "Suicide attack". And as most

:04:04.:04:07.

Ismet dismissed him as an Arab boy and third they have been monitoring

:04:08.:04:12.

this mosque that reportedly he went to after the attack and fled. Those

:04:13.:04:18.

were claims by Speigel which does have an impressive track record of

:04:19.:04:23.

getting accurate leaks details but if that is true that is a worrying

:04:24.:04:27.

string of events. The worrying string of events could easily have

:04:28.:04:30.

already happened in other cases that did not lead to... Totally, security

:04:31.:04:38.

services are fallible like the rest of us and mistakes to get made but

:04:39.:04:41.

it is worrying especially as this person is still at large. OK,

:04:42.:04:48.

continuing with this story, the front page of the Metro. British

:04:49.:04:53.

cash floods in for the Polish truckers' widow. It is his cab that

:04:54.:04:58.

was hijacked and he was murdered just before the attack took place at

:04:59.:05:02.

the Christmas market. Now the Brits are coming forward with money for

:05:03.:05:06.

his widow, one assumes it is coming in from all over the place.

:05:07.:05:11.

Fantastic news and cheerier angle on a few horrible days in Berlin. This

:05:12.:05:15.

Polish lorry driver was on his way home to wrap his business presence

:05:16.:05:18.

with his family and from what I remember he had been travelling for

:05:19.:05:23.

up to a week. Restricted use going to have to spend one more night away

:05:24.:05:26.

from home, terribly got caught up in what happened but Dave Duncan in

:05:27.:05:33.

west Yorkshire set up this fund to try and gift some generous cash to

:05:34.:05:40.

his wife and teenage son and already ?75,000 has been raised, I should

:05:41.:05:44.

that will keep ticking up, saw a real feel-good story. It is great

:05:45.:05:48.

and part of it is because this man tried to stop this guy. Yes. And

:05:49.:05:53.

ended up paying with his life. This man put up a fight to the end,

:05:54.:05:59.

trying desperately to view the truck away from the course it was on so it

:06:00.:06:05.

would cause less damage. It just sounds like a real struggle between

:06:06.:06:10.

him and the attacker, just a terrible way to end and heartening

:06:11.:06:17.

to see the support for his widow and teenage son. That was a hell of a

:06:18.:06:22.

struggle but in police are suggesting this man put up trying to

:06:23.:06:26.

stop this happening. Interesting story, front page of The Times, the

:06:27.:06:31.

Queen's frustration with me over Brexit secrecy. The PM disappointed

:06:32.:06:38.

rub -- whirls Tebar Misic -- Balmoral visit. Clearly you don't

:06:39.:06:42.

take a cake or present, it has to be a good and if you don't handed over

:06:43.:06:46.

you are in trouble. Yes. So, this has emerged, apparently this has

:06:47.:06:52.

come out as the Queen has been travelling to Sandringham, as they

:06:53.:06:58.

do annually for Christmas. This has emerged that a couple of months

:06:59.:07:03.

after Brexit and assuming power, Theresa May went to visit the Queen

:07:04.:07:08.

and I can't actually imagine a situation where she actually said to

:07:09.:07:12.

the Queen, the Queen said, what is Brexit about and she said to the

:07:13.:07:21.

Queen, Brexit means Brexit. Or, what does break Tamim? I don't know?

:07:22.:07:26.

Right. The Queen is like everyone else in the country, thinking, what

:07:27.:07:32.

is going on? I suppose Her Majesty would have thought if anyone was

:07:33.:07:36.

going to get the inside track on this ahead of time. Yes. It might be

:07:37.:07:42.

the leader of 70 million people. Over Brexit with them monarch.

:07:43.:07:49.

Brexit over breakfast. Yes, and it wasn't just that according to the

:07:50.:07:54.

story, she was hoping there might be some insight into her selections for

:07:55.:07:58.

the Cabinet including the appointed Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary.

:07:59.:08:01.

You mean the Queen is trying to understand why he was appointed? Is

:08:02.:08:05.

that what you're suggesting? I think she, like everyone else... Had

:08:06.:08:10.

questions. Does this mean Theresa May doesn't have a plan yet? Or does

:08:11.:08:17.

it mean she was trying to keep up on its just in case? I think the

:08:18.:08:20.

Government has been open insane there is a live discussion about

:08:21.:08:23.

lots of these big topics, yes, we have to make some decisions before

:08:24.:08:28.

March and reformist art the talks to article 50, but they are not trying

:08:29.:08:31.

to hide the fact they haven't got of the answers yet. We've been through

:08:32.:08:36.

this thoroughly. Critics would say you're a clue what is going on.

:08:37.:08:42.

Critics including the Queen. It is fair to say supporters would also

:08:43.:08:46.

say it is the most completed negotiations since the Second World

:08:47.:08:54.

War peace switches complicated, you have to cut Theresa May a bit of

:08:55.:08:57.

slack that weeks after getting the job she doesn't have the answers.

:08:58.:09:01.

She doesn't have a 3-point plan and that isn't unreasonable. If she said

:09:02.:09:06.

Brexit means Brexit at the breakfast table with the monarch... Probably

:09:07.:09:12.

went down like a lead balloon. I'm sure Joe the Queen was destroyed

:09:13.:09:18.

about it. Absolutely, poker face. No-go zones for jury students come

:09:19.:09:22.

interesting story. Yes, this is again a story you would want to be

:09:23.:09:27.

reported very carefully. -- for Jewish students. This is coming from

:09:28.:09:33.

crossbench peer and Chief Executive of universities UK and she says that

:09:34.:09:41.

a lot of British universities, she mentions a few, and Chester and so

:09:42.:09:47.

asked among others, Southampton and Exeter, have become known go zones,

:09:48.:09:52.

Jewish students do not feel safe going to them because of the

:09:53.:09:57.

conversations around Israel and she suggests this has happened because a

:09:58.:10:03.

lot of universities receive donations from Gulf states and

:10:04.:10:07.

therefore don't want to offend them. We are in danger of completing a few

:10:08.:10:14.

things and possibly not doing justice to something that is quite a

:10:15.:10:20.

real issue. -- conflating. Anti-Semitism does exist,

:10:21.:10:25.

universities sometimes can have very desensitised conversations around

:10:26.:10:32.

Israel, the political discussion can veer perhaps unintentionally into a

:10:33.:10:39.

discussion that is hostile or will feel hostile to Jewish students and

:10:40.:10:44.

that must be tackled but doing it in this way is unlikely to provoke the

:10:45.:10:50.

kind of sensitive and reasonable discussion that has to be had. Just

:10:51.:10:57.

saying she believed there are no-go zones for Jewish students at so many

:10:58.:11:00.

British universities which is a serious charge. Based on? Is true

:11:01.:11:08.

that number of universities do get funding from certain regimes in the

:11:09.:11:12.

Middle East. But pointing out she does have some credibility, she has

:11:13.:11:16.

the first ever higher education adjudicator, the person who takes

:11:17.:11:19.

the complaints from students and deals with them with the

:11:20.:11:25.

universities. She is not speaking off-the-cuff, for years she was

:11:26.:11:28.

dealing with things and there is a wider context to this, there appears

:11:29.:11:33.

to be a worrying uptake in anti-Semitism incident reported in

:11:34.:11:36.

the UK in general as well as elsewhere in Europe. Financial

:11:37.:11:45.

Times, China needs by appointment of Peter Navarro by Trump. Pretty

:11:46.:11:48.

staggering, only a couple of weeks and Trump is bidding for his cabinet

:11:49.:11:52.

picks who will be scrutinised by the Senate in the New Year. He is a

:11:53.:11:57.

Harvard trade economist and university of California professor

:11:58.:12:02.

has written a book called "Death by China". And Trump has handed him the

:12:03.:12:12.

position of his main trade advisor. Understandably China has expressed

:12:13.:12:14.

some concern over this and it is said today Corporation is the only

:12:15.:12:18.

correct choice, people are predicting China might respond with

:12:19.:12:22.

its own measures and it is worrying because these are the world plus the

:12:23.:12:28.

two biggest because Arous, if they get into an trade battle. -- two

:12:29.:12:36.

biggest economies. Scary some might suggest. But perhaps this is a man

:12:37.:12:41.

who studied China and knows China and knows perhaps how to deal with

:12:42.:12:46.

them, maybe that is it? He studied China and concluded among other

:12:47.:12:50.

things in his bid that they were parasitic, Imrul, ruthless and

:12:51.:12:57.

despicable. So... That is where his studies... The jury is out. Briefly,

:12:58.:13:02.

the express, UK braced for deadly storm. This is Barbara, the storm.

:13:03.:13:10.

And it will hit at the very northern bit of Scotland apparently. Scotland

:13:11.:13:19.

and the North, 90 man-hour wins, to get -- torrential rain, millions

:13:20.:13:24.

will suffer chaos apparently. -- 90 mile an hour winds. Another one

:13:25.:13:27.

after that that could hit us. That is from the express. Let's hope it's

:13:28.:13:35.

not deadly. Thank you both. Don't forget all the front pages

:13:36.:13:38.

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

:13:39.:13:41.

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

:13:42.:13:43.

7 days a week at bbc dot co uk forward slash papers -

:13:44.:13:47.

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

:13:48.:13:50.

of The Papers being posted on the page shortly

:13:51.:13:52.

after we've finished. Good evening, there was a winter

:13:53.:14:14.

chill in the air today. Sunshine but more snow showers in Scotland. That

:14:15.:14:17.

cloud there

:14:18.:14:18.

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.
