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

:00:16.:00:19.

We've had a few more from pages in the last hour.

:00:20.:00:25.

With me Kate Devlin, Political Correspondent

:00:26.:00:26.

at the Scottish Newspaper, The Herald and the Broadcaster,

:00:27.:00:29.

Let's update you on what is on some of the front pages.

:00:30.:00:36.

'North Korea threatens Trump with nuclear war' is the i's

:00:37.:00:43.

headline, with an interesting photograph.

:00:44.:00:45.

The Times claims Europe is braced for a new migrant crisis

:00:46.:00:48.

after Turkey's President Erdogan indicated he may issue Brussels

:00:49.:00:51.

with an ultimatum on visa-free travel.

:00:52.:00:54.

The Guardian leads with a report from Afghanistan

:00:55.:00:57.

on the impact of last week's bomb attack by US forces.

:00:58.:01:00.

According to the Daily Telegraph, schoolchildren in England will be

:01:01.:01:02.

given better access to NHS mental health workers.

:01:03.:01:05.

The paper featured an exclusive interview with Prince Harry today

:01:06.:01:07.

about his personal battle with mental health.

:01:08.:01:12.

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

:01:13.:01:15.

for an end to the UK's stiff upper lip culture

:01:16.:01:17.

and encourage people to talk openly about their emotions.

:01:18.:01:23.

The Metro has fresh allegations about Facebook

:01:24.:01:28.

and the social media phenomenon of so-called "fake news".

:01:29.:01:34.

Top story for the Express is 'Crackdown on Foreign Crooks',

:01:35.:01:36.

with new rules to be announced by the Justice Secretary,

:01:37.:01:39.

The Mirror has the latest speculation on the disappearance

:01:40.:01:42.

Let's plunge straight in. The Guardian has this interesting

:01:43.:01:55.

article about... Very timely, given we pat bombings in Afghanistan,

:01:56.:02:01.

Syria and now all this talk about threats and action in North Korea.

:02:02.:02:06.

They say this is the mother of all bombs? A wonderful expression. Much

:02:07.:02:12.

was made of the largest non- nuclear bomb ever used in combat. That was

:02:13.:02:18.

last Thursday. The question remains what long-term impact will that Bob

:02:19.:02:26.

have had? -- on. According to this story it was felt across all local

:02:27.:02:30.

villages, some people were driven away by the group returning to their

:02:31.:02:37.

homes, but the Taliban remain dominant, the dominant force in that

:02:38.:02:42.

conflict. This is interesting. Mr Trump targeted Islamic State, but

:02:43.:02:47.

people said at the time that actually Islamic State wasn't much

:02:48.:02:51.

of a presence, they were already on the defensive. Another problem as

:02:52.:02:59.

well. Number 10 and an awful lot of governments across the world were

:03:00.:03:02.

very worried about what happens if Isis has indeed taken a fatal hit

:03:03.:03:06.

because we were worried about what happens to those fighters. Where do

:03:07.:03:10.

they go? They don't give up the fight, they disburse locally or they

:03:11.:03:17.

return to their home countries. So it's an incredibly difficult jigsaw

:03:18.:03:28.

on geopolitics going on. Sometimes you've got to change minds. It is

:03:29.:03:34.

difficult to kill an idea. Very unlikely to kill an idea. History

:03:35.:03:40.

suggests that. I would point out. I've been reading funnily enough

:03:41.:03:44.

recently a book about the buildup to the start of the Second World War.

:03:45.:03:48.

And what happened after the world war. This was the story of a lord,

:03:49.:03:57.

some people might remember. Those ideas that were there in the 1930s

:03:58.:04:04.

were there after 1945. And so you are absolutely right. Where are

:04:05.:04:07.

these people going to go? However bigger weapon is, an interesting

:04:08.:04:14.

story. We will come back to the Guardian in a bid. Moving on to the

:04:15.:04:19.

Times. People will be slightly baffled by... We will come back. A

:04:20.:04:26.

large money next to Donald Trump, this is not some joke, this is all

:04:27.:04:31.

perfectly normal for US presidents. It's not fake news. They do two

:04:32.:04:37.

things. They do an Easter egg hunt, and they do call it that, given

:04:38.:04:45.

recent rows about that. And they also part of the Thanksgiving

:04:46.:04:48.

turkey. Let's talk about the serious stuff. That's the story about Europe

:04:49.:04:55.

says Turkey will renege on migrant deal. Why? Because the leader of

:04:56.:04:58.

Turkey has been massively bolstered this weekend by winning the

:04:59.:05:03.

referendum. Actually quite tight in the end. Tighter than the Brexit

:05:04.:05:10.

referendum. Certainly tighter than a lot of people expected. It's been

:05:11.:05:16.

disputed. A fact that it's been disputed is also giving something to

:05:17.:05:24.

the opposition parties in Turkey. But the fact remains. He won a

:05:25.:05:28.

referendum that gives him a lot more power and the fear across Europe,

:05:29.:05:33.

according to the Times, is that he will start exercising that and start

:05:34.:05:37.

flexing his muscles. He will demand that the time is up and he will want

:05:38.:05:43.

these are free access to the Schengen area. This is an especially

:05:44.:05:48.

difficult time for countries like Germany to be doing deals with

:05:49.:05:54.

Turkey to keep migrants out and France, both with elections this

:05:55.:05:57.

year, both with nationalist party saying, we don't want more people

:05:58.:06:01.

coming in. Turkey has an interesting relationship with Germany. A lot of

:06:02.:06:08.

Turks have settled and clearly there is worry about allowing Turks to

:06:09.:06:11.

come into Europe. There was this big campaign. If we stay in EU people

:06:12.:06:17.

from Turkey will be able to come here. Debatable as to whether that

:06:18.:06:20.

was true but it was clearly emotional point. Turkey is

:06:21.:06:23.

absolutely pivotal. People realise that. Are they in the west? Are they

:06:24.:06:34.

the link with Asia? And of course they are Nato. Yes, which is

:06:35.:06:40.

crucial. The president, regardless of this referendum result, it would

:06:41.:06:45.

appear to me particularly at such a difficult time that it is in a very

:06:46.:06:50.

strong position if it comes to negotiating with Brussels. Just

:06:51.:06:58.

going back to the referendum, you say he won, the opposition a week

:06:59.:07:04.

ago, all the stuffing were being knocked out of the opposition. It

:07:05.:07:09.

appears to be tonight that they've been given a fresh lease of life by

:07:10.:07:13.

these independent observer is who said, hey, this very close

:07:14.:07:19.

referendum was not straight, it wasn't acceptable. His response to

:07:20.:07:25.

the election was to know your place. Quite interesting. So the

:07:26.:07:30.

Independent say that he isn't interested. It is noticeable that

:07:31.:07:35.

Donald Trump was on the phone to congratulate him. Maybe whatever

:07:36.:07:38.

people think of him it might have been a beetroot if Mrs May,

:07:39.:07:44.

Chancellor Merkel, Francois Hollande had been on the phone as well.

:07:45.:07:50.

Apparently he didn't win the referendum even on his figures in

:07:51.:07:56.

any of the three biggest cities in Turkey, including Istanbul. Ankara,

:07:57.:08:05.

Istanbul, is near, voted no. Other parts of the country where he is

:08:06.:08:08.

strong, it could be an interesting conflict. -- Izmir. Moving on. North

:08:09.:08:20.

Korea is on the front of the i. I mentioned this earlier. There is a

:08:21.:08:25.

great each of Kim Jong-un. It is a great photo. If you were worried

:08:26.:08:29.

about recent events in the past couple of days, looking about face,

:08:30.:08:36.

it's not exactly... Yes, it had overplayed? Threatening Trump with

:08:37.:08:39.

nuclear war. They fired a missile and it went... In the know why it

:08:40.:08:45.

fizzled out. Did the Americans have anything to do with it? The

:08:46.:08:49.

conspiracy theorists will be working overtime I'm sure over the next few

:08:50.:08:57.

days. But, you know, it is so unpredictable that you have a new

:08:58.:09:02.

president. Has he really only been in power since January? It seems

:09:03.:09:08.

extraordinary! He seems to have been in power forever! What's fascinating

:09:09.:09:13.

to me is the talk of the battle inside the White House between...

:09:14.:09:20.

For the presidents here. And the two sides, one of the sites with some of

:09:21.:09:25.

his relations who's been smeared by the other side as Democrats. My

:09:26.:09:32.

goodness! What an awful crime that was! The front of The Daily Mail. I

:09:33.:09:38.

think it's fair to say this is the domestic story of the day, this Port

:09:39.:09:44.

Arthur that the Telegraph got of Prince Harry, which has been quite

:09:45.:09:49.

striking. What impact the think it will have? The papers think it will

:09:50.:09:53.

have a". I think it will have a big impact. I also think this particular

:09:54.:09:59.

story, coming from his brother, will have a particular impact and I think

:10:00.:10:03.

it's an incredibly sophisticated appeal, actually. They really know

:10:04.:10:09.

what they're doing on this. He talks about losing our stiff upper lip.

:10:10.:10:15.

What he understands Daily Mail readers, so there a line in it in

:10:16.:10:18.

which he says the traditional stiff upper lip still has it's place at

:10:19.:10:26.

some places, but let's not let it get in the way of a mental health.

:10:27.:10:33.

Couple that with a picture of the children as well, I think it's a

:10:34.:10:38.

real attempts to win over hearts and minds. It goes very well with what

:10:39.:10:44.

his brother has said. 20 years ago, or not quite 20 years, it will be

:10:45.:10:49.

the anniversary. There was that controversy because initially it

:10:50.:10:51.

looked like the queen was staying away from London, they were

:10:52.:10:55.

detaching themselves emotionally from the public trauma over the

:10:56.:11:01.

shock death of Diana, Princess of Wales. It seems like we've travelled

:11:02.:11:06.

a long way. I would love to be a fly on the wall when somebody called the

:11:07.:11:09.

Duke of Edinburgh meets Prince William perhaps to discuss this

:11:10.:11:15.

story about the end of the stiff upper lip. Do I not remember Prince

:11:16.:11:22.

Charles... He didn't enjoy it! Wasn't that all about stiff upper

:11:23.:11:27.

lip and all of the rest of it? It is an extraordinary story. Some of us

:11:28.:11:34.

hope that mental health will at last be getting the priority it deserves.

:11:35.:11:38.

I can remember much maligned in the coalition government, Nick Clegg

:11:39.:11:43.

championed mental health in a very large way. To be fair, when Liam Fox

:11:44.:11:48.

ran for the Tory leadership when he was running against David Cameron,

:11:49.:11:54.

one of his big focus is was when he spoke about the Cinderella of mental

:11:55.:11:57.

health. It is something we've spoken about for a long time. AB this will

:11:58.:12:04.

be at -- maybe this will be an important moment for them. Living

:12:05.:12:08.

onto the Express. Another photo of the young royals. Crackdown on

:12:09.:12:14.

foreign crooks. Tell us all about this. This is an attempt to speed up

:12:15.:12:19.

the deportation of foreign crooks and those who have lost their asylum

:12:20.:12:26.

appeals. It's an attempt to reduce the amount of time to less than one

:12:27.:12:33.

month. 28 days. It has to be said that previous attempts to do

:12:34.:12:37.

something similar came up against the courts. The European Convention

:12:38.:12:44.

on Human Rights perhaps? And it does appear as if this is... They talk

:12:45.:12:52.

about 2000 people and saving in the millions, not a terribly huge amount

:12:53.:12:56.

of money. A good headline for the government. And for Liz Truss, who

:12:57.:13:01.

has had quite bad headlines. She has had a rough few months. Moving on. I

:13:02.:13:06.

want to allow plenty of time to talk about this. This is the Telegraph's

:13:07.:13:13.

back page. Earlier we were listening to my grave and who sounded like it

:13:14.:13:17.

had a good evening we had some interesting things to say. A great

:13:18.:13:20.

night for them, but presumably they don't want to be like Leicester.

:13:21.:13:27.

They want to be a disappointment within the year. I have no doubt

:13:28.:13:31.

that this achievement is greater than Leicester City's. 20 years ago

:13:32.:13:39.

some of us remember this football club was on its knees. It was 15

:13:40.:13:44.

minutes from going out of the foot or leak and in the bottom division

:13:45.:13:50.

altogether. It had no ground. It had been sold by the previous owner.

:13:51.:13:55.

Virtually every week there were protests of one sort or another. I

:13:56.:14:00.

was at the FA at that time and was fighting a battle with the lawyers,

:14:01.:14:06.

not for the first or last time in my life! I said, what is the FA for if

:14:07.:14:14.

it is not to help with this sort of thing? And certain lawyers, who will

:14:15.:14:21.

remain nameless, said precedent, we have to it for every club, et

:14:22.:14:25.

cetera. There was some evidence that I want that little battle and played

:14:26.:14:30.

a small part in this club which you heard of, your interviewee from the

:14:31.:14:34.

streets of Brighton, with a few interesting people behind them. You

:14:35.:14:39.

know, they care about this club. This club was saved by local people.

:14:40.:14:51.

They have built this club up. They are the recipe for how you develop a

:14:52.:14:54.

football club successfully and they've had some bad fortune, what's

:14:55.:15:00.

great fortune is well along the way and they deserve every second of it.

:15:01.:15:02.

Good. Good news. These pictures are crackers. I

:15:03.:15:15.

wonder what he is going to do when he has to pad and the traditional

:15:16.:15:21.

Thanksgiving turkey. I wonder if he will depart from tradition. This is

:15:22.:15:27.

a photo. People would have killed to get this vote in the past. It is

:15:28.:15:35.

absolutely fantastic. -- photo. The startled impression on that bunny's

:15:36.:15:44.

face. Every single world leader that goes to the White House will be

:15:45.:15:50.

superimposed onto that bunny. Part of me wonders if there is something

:15:51.:15:54.

of the Hillary Clinton about this bunny. The glasses. We don't know if

:15:55.:16:04.

it is a male bunny. She is looking for a job. I think maybe they could

:16:05.:16:13.

have been a slightly more... You think they have let us down with

:16:14.:16:17.

some of the headlines? Personally I would have liked Puppet in the White

:16:18.:16:24.

House if it was one of Jim Henson's creations. You could go Muppet if

:16:25.:16:31.

you needed to. If this does not make it onto the front page of a

:16:32.:16:34.

well-known satirical magazine next week, I will be astounded. To use

:16:35.:16:44.

the word "startled". The bunny is startled. I wonder what by? On that

:16:45.:16:53.

note, what a wonderful way to end is the. A pleasure to see you guys

:16:54.:16:57.

again. I hope you find time to eat some eggs. Chocolate will be half

:16:58.:17:02.

price in the shops. That is it the big thank you for staying with us.

:17:03.:17:05.

Now it is time for Meet the Author. Oklahoma in the 1920s, and the true

:17:06.:17:23.

story of a murder conspiracy that absorbed and shocked America, and

:17:24.:17:24.

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.
