Hello and welcome to the Paper. Good evening. Before we hear from them,

:00:17.:00:32.

let's look at the front pages. Let's start with the Metro. It leads with

:00:33.:00:41.

the news that net migration has followed. The never features the

:00:42.:00:46.

dramatic picture of the waves whipped up by Doris.

:00:47.:01:01.

The i top story includes an interview with Michael Gove. The

:01:02.:01:14.

Daily Express looks at storm Doris. The Times leads with a story about

:01:15.:01:27.

students. The Guardian says that recent quality will be threatened

:01:28.:01:32.

within the force. The Daily Mail leads with a story about tumble

:01:33.:01:42.

dryers. What a mix. A real mix of stories. Doris features heavily. The

:01:43.:01:52.

Metro has decided to read on the latest migrant figures. They all

:01:53.:01:58.

kinds of reported in a different way. It's all how you want to read

:01:59.:02:05.

the figures. Metro says that migrants could UK after Brexit

:02:06.:02:09.

fault. Net migration is actually up. It is just slumming. A lot of these

:02:10.:02:17.

figures are focusing on the Polish and to give the

:02:18.:02:28.

Bulgarians are taking the place is. I think that the focus is on the

:02:29.:02:34.

number of Eastern European immigrants that came here in the

:02:35.:02:38.

first wave in the first group of eight countries. You pointed out the

:02:39.:02:42.

remaining and the body of years. That is on the Financial Times. It

:02:43.:02:55.

seems to be as ever, complicated. Lots of people would like to think

:02:56.:03:02.

that immigration is straightforward. More people are coming in but even

:03:03.:03:07.

more people are coming out. Yes, where they are from is interesting.

:03:08.:03:14.

The people from the EU aid, the Eastern European countries that

:03:15.:03:18.

joined that were allies to come during 2011, many seem to be going

:03:19.:03:27.

home. Bulgaria and remaining, given freedom of movement in 2014, make up

:03:28.:03:32.

20% of all immigrants from the European Union. Is this to do with

:03:33.:03:39.

the Brexit fault? Are they coming in before the door slams shut? -- is

:03:40.:03:46.

this do with the Brexit fault back? We will see more squabbling over

:03:47.:03:50.

numbers and immigration will be read as a story for a long time. The

:03:51.:03:54.

number of students coming to study seems to be going down. That is

:03:55.:03:59.

interesting. There is a wider issue of how that pushes up the costs for

:04:00.:04:07.

domestic students. What is the knock-on effect for us? Is that the

:04:08.:04:12.

intended outcome of Brexit? Probably not? What the Brexit voters want is

:04:13.:04:19.

less immigration and there will be a knock-on effect. The former number

:04:20.:04:27.

ten chief is criticising the civil service. Yes, what a man he is. This

:04:28.:04:34.

is the man that famously put top-secret documents in the bin. He

:04:35.:04:40.

said he would cut public spending driven to slither to one LX and --

:04:41.:04:50.

during the 2001 election campaign. He says that civil servants hide

:04:51.:05:00.

behind jargon. The union, not surprisingly, says that being in

:05:01.:05:08.

Government he cut their pay, maybe that has nothing to do with it. It's

:05:09.:05:13.

strange that he is talking about it. Let's move on to the Daily

:05:14.:05:21.

Telegraph. We've been hearing from the Northern Ireland Secretary that

:05:22.:05:24.

says that the troubles and quirky as unfair to soldiers. He says that you

:05:25.:05:30.

cannot keep investigating soldiers that were involved in the Northern

:05:31.:05:33.

Ireland troubles for years and years. It cannot be and open ended

:05:34.:05:41.

in quarry. He says that you should be focusing on uterus. -- focusing

:05:42.:05:48.

on the temperatures. You can see both sides of the story. There were

:05:49.:05:55.

some soldiers from the 60s and 70s that do not know when this will come

:05:56.:06:00.

back to them. There are a lot of victims that start care. They just

:06:01.:06:08.

want closure. Why is this coming out now? Because of the Stormont

:06:09.:06:12.

elections? There was a backbench debate about it. There were very few

:06:13.:06:22.

MPs. It is a kind of story that the Telegraph likes. Strangely, the

:06:23.:06:25.

minister says that he has called for a new system. He is the minister,

:06:26.:06:33.

why doesn't he just do it? Clearly it fits with the Stormont elections

:06:34.:06:39.

coming up next week. We will see the impact on that. Another story on the

:06:40.:06:43.

Telegraph. Chaos warning over business rates. The Government seems

:06:44.:06:50.

to be changing their mind about the business rates. Game of the business

:06:51.:06:54.

not sure about the business rates they will be playing. -- they will

:06:55.:07:02.

be paying. Is it chaos? I think it's fair to say... Chaos is an

:07:03.:07:05.

intriguing work because the Prime Minister said yesterday there

:07:06.:07:12.

wouldn't be more money and the local Government minister said yes, there

:07:13.:07:17.

will be. People say this is chaos. It is the second day in a row that

:07:18.:07:25.

this story has had this work. -- this story has had this word

:07:26.:07:31.

attached to it. We also know that governments like to test policies

:07:32.:07:35.

out and see what the reaction is before they actually present

:07:36.:07:41.

through. The times are offering most of the front page to absolute

:07:42.:07:49.

heartbreak for some students. Students are being offered degrees

:07:50.:07:56.

over two years. It will just cost you a bit. But then you can get into

:07:57.:08:01.

work of us in. That's not really the idea of going to university, let's

:08:02.:08:10.

be honest! You spend less time it going to summer holiday and you can

:08:11.:08:14.

squeeze your studies into a more expensive to your course. -- two

:08:15.:08:22.

your course. Most students don't know what to do after I would like

:08:23.:08:27.

extra time to think about it. -- what to do after and would like

:08:28.:08:31.

extra time. There is an interesting perspective there that anybody who

:08:32.:08:41.

is not an undergraduate or is trying to squeeze study in around other

:08:42.:08:48.

things. I would be really around anything that is shoring tuition

:08:49.:08:59.

fees going up. -- tuition fees going. The do room is mitigating its

:09:00.:09:01.

front page to the huge waves. That was the picture in London. In

:09:02.:09:16.

London, someone's and roller-coaster runway. It is actually a weather

:09:17.:09:26.

bomb, not just a storm. That is the technical... I think there is a loss

:09:27.:09:33.

of, it was a windy day and it is very sad, there were some horrific

:09:34.:09:42.

accidents. A storm gives more front-page credibility because it

:09:43.:09:46.

has a name. It passes the test of what people will talk about in the

:09:47.:09:51.

pub. Everybody is talking about tourists.

:09:52.:09:59.

Everybody is talking about it. Interestingly it is called Doris.

:10:00.:10:06.

Apparently storms with female names are regarded less threatening than

:10:07.:10:10.

the storms with male names. What is the next one, Evan? UN, I think.

:10:11.:10:19.

It'll be interesting to see if that will be more threatening. -- Ewan.

:10:20.:10:29.

On Twitter? I'm being cynical. It is a Met Office, not a stunt, but it is

:10:30.:10:33.

a way of getting attention both on the Met office and the weather. It

:10:34.:10:38.

is designed for people to take the weather more seriously. A story

:10:39.:10:44.

inside the times. The housing crisis clogs up canals. This is an old

:10:45.:10:48.

story for me because this has been going on in London for a long time.

:10:49.:10:54.

People opting for boats rather than houses. The route between little

:10:55.:10:58.

Venice and Regents Park is a motorway, they say. It is nice. It

:10:59.:11:01.

isn't a motorway, it is nice and pretty, it is pleasant. There have

:11:02.:11:09.

been complaints. Lots of complaints from residents who live along the

:11:10.:11:12.

canal about the noise and the pollution and the letter from the

:11:13.:11:16.

amount of canal boats. The pollution is a pretty good point, because,

:11:17.:11:22.

they do charge out some horrific fuel fumes. And smoke. And smoke

:11:23.:11:31.

yeah, maybe it is time... The point is, people are doing it. It is a

:11:32.:11:35.

London story. Because even in the copy it says that it'll happen in

:11:36.:11:41.

Birmingham and Manchester, as well. But house prices are crazy in

:11:42.:11:47.

London. Living on a riverboat seems like a cheap and cheerful option.

:11:48.:11:53.

Consequently, loads are taking to it. There is a survey saying more

:11:54.:11:59.

than half are doing it for financial rather than lifestyle reasons. Is it

:12:00.:12:04.

as romantic as it seems? Somebody says it is cold and cramped and I

:12:05.:12:08.

love it. We must leave it here. Thank you for taking us through the

:12:09.:12:13.

papers. Thanks for watching. You can see all of the Papers on the

:12:14.:12:22.

website. And you can watch the programme, as welcome if you so wish

:12:23.:12:27.

on iPlayer. Thanks to you all. Good night.

:12:28.:12:40.

After a very stormy day today I'm pleased to say
