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

:00:17.:00:19.

With me - Kate Devlin, Political Correspondent

:00:20.:00:22.

at The Herald, and the broadcaster David Davies.

:00:23.:00:32.

Education correspondent, political correspondence. So a lot to talk

:00:33.:00:37.

about. They have had a sneak preview, let's give you an idea on

:00:38.:00:40.

what is in the front pages tomorrow morning.

:00:41.:00:41.

'North Korea threatens Trump with nuclear war'

:00:42.:00:43.

is the i's headline, after the country promised

:00:44.:00:45.

The Times claims Europe is braced for a new migrant crisis,

:00:46.:00:51.

after Turkey's President Erdogan indicated he may issue

:00:52.:00:53.

Brussels with an ultimatum on visa-free travel.

:00:54.:00:56.

The Guardian leads with a report from Afghanistan on the impact

:00:57.:00:58.

of last week's bomb attack by US forces.

:00:59.:01:04.

According to the Daily Telegraph, schoolchildren will be given better

:01:05.:01:07.

The paper featured an exclusive interview with Prince Harry today

:01:08.:01:12.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail says the Duke of Cambridge will call

:01:13.:01:21.

for an end to the UK's stiff upper lip culture, and encourage people

:01:22.:01:24.

The Metro has fresh allegations about Facebook and the social media

:01:25.:01:32.

Top story for the Express is 'Crackdown on foreign crooks',

:01:33.:01:39.

with new rules to be announced by the Justice Secretary,

:01:40.:01:42.

The Mirror has the latest speculation on the disappearance

:01:43.:01:45.

Almost ten years since she vanished in Portugal.

:01:46.:01:50.

Who wants to kick off with this? What has he got to be so cheerful

:01:51.:02:01.

about, David? Well, I suppose we will have to get used to apocalyptic

:02:02.:02:08.

headlines like this. North Korea threatens Trump with nuclear war.

:02:09.:02:18.

This is what, in the past, I would have said, it is an exaggeration. It

:02:19.:02:22.

is not now because it appears to me that we are in uncharted waters in a

:02:23.:02:28.

very big way, and I have seen some of the interviews you have been

:02:29.:02:32.

doing on the News Channel during the day. The most difficult thing seems

:02:33.:02:36.

to me to be that there is no confidence at all that what is a

:02:37.:02:41.

logical discussion that we might regard as logical, the Americans

:02:42.:02:47.

might regard as a logical discussion between civil servants in Washington

:02:48.:02:52.

and in Pyongyang is regarded in that way at all by those in North Korea.

:02:53.:02:58.

So they are not talking the same language at all. Civil servants

:02:59.:03:01.

don't understand each other in the same way and that is before you get

:03:02.:03:06.

to the political leaders. Kate, I don't know if North Korea was on the

:03:07.:03:11.

list of countries who might have a free-trade deal with us after

:03:12.:03:17.

Brexit, I don't know if Boris Johnson David Davis fancy going! I

:03:18.:03:20.

am sure we have something we could sell! We were talking not that long

:03:21.:03:26.

ago, Britain's first Ambassador, in 2002, the first time we have had an

:03:27.:03:31.

Ambassador there, and he says he had no sense that people in Pyongyang in

:03:32.:03:36.

government circles had any idea of the UK thinking in the Foreign

:03:37.:03:41.

Office, and in what used to be called the chancelleries of Europe.

:03:42.:03:45.

It is quite terrifying and frankly, Britain's role is pretty marginal.

:03:46.:03:52.

It is, and you are right. Most days, he looks like a smiling madmen.

:03:53.:04:00.

Especially today. He is chortling. The contrast what you are saying

:04:01.:04:07.

about this ministry we also have to look at Donald Trump and most of his

:04:08.:04:10.

civil servants are still grappling with what he really thinks which

:04:11.:04:13.

seems to be changing on a daily basis. There is so much tough talk

:04:14.:04:21.

from both sides. It is apocalyptic language. I wonder if we are getting

:04:22.:04:27.

hints... People are pulling back from it? It does seem the US is now

:04:28.:04:32.

emphasising diplomatic routes and sanctions. This negotiation idea,

:04:33.:04:39.

both of them, is it just tough talk is? I absolutely want you to be

:04:40.:04:46.

right! The problem is, how much room for manoeuvre is that? We have had

:04:47.:04:53.

sanctions for years. Years and years and years. And the truth is, they

:04:54.:04:58.

have not worked. I would love to know what former President Obama

:04:59.:05:05.

thinks about where we are today. And indeed, interesting to know what

:05:06.:05:09.

Hillary Clinton thinks about it. Whether it would have been any

:05:10.:05:14.

different to President Trump. Yes, had those things happened. We are

:05:15.:05:20.

still just about at this stage of, well, if you do that, we will do the

:05:21.:05:24.

other things. All the rest of it, that cannot go on forever. Shall we

:05:25.:05:33.

move on the front the Express? What about Prince Harry in a moment and a

:05:34.:05:36.

lovely picture of his brother and sister-in-law talking about praising

:05:37.:05:39.

Prince Harry for coming out about his mental anguish. But this story

:05:40.:05:48.

about a crackdown on foreign oil site like the stories we get at this

:05:49.:05:51.

time of year when papers get given stuff before the bank holiday and

:05:52.:05:58.

they think it will be a quiet run. The stay back at work. Tell us about

:05:59.:06:03.

the story and how much do you think it stands? It is important to

:06:04.:06:07.

remember this particular Minister needs a win at the moment, Liz Truss

:06:08.:06:13.

has had a lot of difficulties in recent weeks, heavily criticised by

:06:14.:06:17.

the judiciary, overruled in some of that initiatives she has tried to

:06:18.:06:22.

bring in. So this is an interesting story and it does depend on what the

:06:23.:06:28.

detail will be. As always! Who are these foreign crooks we are cracking

:06:29.:06:34.

down on? The problem might be there not that many of them. There are

:06:35.:06:38.

quite a lot of foreign crooks and people who have been turned down for

:06:39.:06:44.

asylum. So it is that old thing of getting people out of the country

:06:45.:06:48.

again? Yes, and putting the two together. Even the Minister of

:06:49.:06:52.

Justice is suggesting this would be 2,000 cases a year and it would save

:06:53.:06:57.

around 2.7 million. Which in the grand scheme of things is fairly

:06:58.:07:00.

small. There is another figure in the middle of the story, the backlog

:07:01.:07:05.

of cases of asylum seekers deemed subject to removal action,", stood

:07:06.:07:13.

at nearly 27,000 last year, not including the thousands and Royal in

:07:14.:07:17.

legal appeals against the rejection of their applications to stay. I

:07:18.:07:22.

hate to be a sin at, but I have an instinct that this is more work. I

:07:23.:07:29.

hate to be a cynic. More work than my loan and friends! Surely not,

:07:30.:07:32.

there are quotes from Liz Truss saying it is vital and they should

:07:33.:07:38.

be removed as quickly as possible. I feel I have heard this before, and

:07:39.:07:43.

remember Charles Clarke and there was all that stuff about foreign

:07:44.:07:47.

prisoners who should be kicked out after serving their sentences here

:07:48.:07:50.

and they banished, and John Reid before he said the Home Office was

:07:51.:07:55.

broken. It is now the Ministry of Justice. These stories seem to come

:07:56.:08:00.

round on a regular basis. Yes, and it seems quite difficult to achieve,

:08:01.:08:05.

so it seems as if they have narrowed the field of what they are doing.

:08:06.:08:09.

Talking about Case reviews for each individual case and you can see why

:08:10.:08:12.

they are only talking about 2,000 cases a year. In some ways, job

:08:13.:08:20.

done. Front page of the Express, and the Telegraph. Good headlines for a

:08:21.:08:24.

Minister in difficulty going back to work on Tuesday. We mention Harry,

:08:25.:08:29.

the on the front of the Daily Telegraph and you cannot blame them

:08:30.:08:33.

for milking this story. It is a cracker of a story. From their own

:08:34.:08:40.

paper today, at watershed moment for the mental health debate, that is

:08:41.:08:44.

top of tomorrow's Daily Telegraph and about time too. Let's hope

:08:45.:08:53.

Prince Harry's revelation that he took counselling to come to terms

:08:54.:08:58.

with his mother's death has the same effect that that same mother had

:08:59.:09:02.

when she got involved in the HIV aid debate. Which was extraordinary. A

:09:03.:09:08.

catalyst for so much in terms of changing attitudes. A lot of

:09:09.:09:11.

hostility towards people with HIV and she became a reassuring figure

:09:12.:09:17.

and a lot of people were very nervous about how we should deal

:09:18.:09:21.

with it and react. Absolutely, but I could not help on the way in here

:09:22.:09:30.

the studio, we saw the ten o'clock news stop and there we have, my

:09:31.:09:35.

goodness, a change for children taking maths and that is, I think,

:09:36.:09:42.

is that right? And the grading systems. Where is this coming from?

:09:43.:09:51.

Politicians again. Some of us have lived through education revolution

:09:52.:09:57.

of the education revolution. Going back 30 years or more! And you get

:09:58.:10:04.

to a point, are our politicians in this country incapable of finding a

:10:05.:10:09.

consensus, a consensus for a set number of years, from whichever

:10:10.:10:14.

political party they come from. And letting the teachers get on with the

:10:15.:10:20.

job. This is the teachers conference. I am sure you have spent

:10:21.:10:27.

many happy weekends! Some of us have the wounds from the past. We were

:10:28.:10:31.

talking about this then and we are no further. Kate, finally, do you

:10:32.:10:36.

think something like this differently in schools in Scotland

:10:37.:10:40.

in terms of issues like support for pupils in crisis and counselling,

:10:41.:10:47.

compared to what has happened and in England? I think across the UK, all

:10:48.:10:52.

schools are still struggling to understand the scale and extent of

:10:53.:10:58.

the problem. And then to try and deal with a societywide stigma. But

:10:59.:11:05.

it talks about depression and anxiety on the increase of 70% in

:11:06.:11:08.

the last 25 years. Among young people. I don't think we have yet

:11:09.:11:14.

grappled with how big a problem it is. Hopefully, we will talk about

:11:15.:11:20.

this more at half past 11. That is a flavour of what is coming up.

:11:21.:11:26.

You'll both be back at 11:30 for another look at the front pages.

:11:27.:11:31.

And if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it

:11:32.:11:34.

The skies are starting to clear that we're in for a chilly night, a touch

:11:35.:12:09.

of frost around in many areas, and a sharp frost across the far

:12:10.:12:10.

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.
