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

:00:00.:00:18.

With me are the political commentator, Lance Price,

:00:19.:00:20.

and Liam Halligan, Chief Economics Commentator

:00:21.:00:22.

The Metro leads on the arrest of the four serving soldiers

:00:23.:00:32.

on suspicion of joining an outlawed neo-Nazi terror organisation who

:00:33.:00:35.

The FT focuses on the story that the Home Office

:00:36.:00:42.

is developing stricter rules for EU migrants wanting to work

:00:43.:00:46.

The Telegraph also leads with story about post

:00:47.:00:49.

Brexit immigration plans, which it says will only allow low

:00:50.:00:52.

skilled EU migrants stay for a year, before being sent home.

:00:53.:00:54.

The Daily Express is predicting a royal engagement

:00:55.:00:56.

as Prince Harry's girlfriend Megan Markle confesses

:00:57.:00:58.

And the I sees the Archbishop of Canterbury

:00:59.:01:02.

criticising the government over Britain's unfair economy.

:01:03.:01:04.

He calls for higher wages, school reform and fairer taxes,

:01:05.:01:06.

in what he says is the worst wage stagnation for 150 years.

:01:07.:01:11.

The Times claims the Prime Minister is planning to abandon a manifesto

:01:12.:01:18.

pledge to cut the number of MPs. And the Daily Mail goes with the

:01:19.:01:24.

government proposals to restrict the number of low skilled workers

:01:25.:01:28.

allowed into the UK after Brexit and the Guardian has pictures of the

:01:29.:01:31.

leaked document containing the proposals. We will start with that.

:01:32.:01:44.

This has been leaked by... Who knows! Not by someone... And who

:01:45.:01:54.

benefits? And after a few weeks of not getting anywhere with Brexit, or

:01:55.:01:59.

making progress on the tiniest technical details. This is a bit of

:02:00.:02:11.

a fillip to those who voted Brexit. This is back-to-school, the Prime

:02:12.:02:17.

Minister is revving up for a major speech on the exit. We don't know

:02:18.:02:21.

when it will be, probably before the Tory party conference in the first

:02:22.:02:26.

week of October. It makes the negotiations more difficult on the

:02:27.:02:31.

one hand because it will upset the EU side is even during the

:02:32.:02:34.

transition period for two years after March 2019, even in that time

:02:35.:02:44.

the clamps will come down and low skilled workers will not be able to

:02:45.:02:48.

come to the UK and there will be freedom of movement being curtailed.

:02:49.:02:52.

On the other hand it will please some restive Tory MPs who want

:02:53.:02:58.

Brexit, some Labour MPs who want it despite the position of their front

:02:59.:03:01.

bench and it will do something to say that even though we have these

:03:02.:03:05.

problems with the EU, we are getting on with it and there is a major

:03:06.:03:09.

after Brexit legislation coming in during the autumn and we are

:03:10.:03:12.

determined to get it through Parliament. That is what it feels

:03:13.:03:15.

like to most observers I would suggest. And I think it also shows

:03:16.:03:22.

that the Tories or certainly some of them think that if they are seen to

:03:23.:03:25.

be tough on immigration which they believe was the real root cause

:03:26.:03:30.

behind a lot of people voting to leave, they will be forgiven... For

:03:31.:03:37.

handing over 60 billion? Whatever the divorce bill turned out to be.

:03:38.:03:42.

Like so many of these papers, this is not clear. Some statements from

:03:43.:03:50.

the Home Office suggest they have not seen it, the Guardian said that

:03:51.:03:54.

is already causing disagreement between ministers. We don't know how

:03:55.:03:59.

serious it is. But like so many of these position papers, it raises

:04:00.:04:04.

more questions than it answers about whether it could be made to work and

:04:05.:04:08.

the impact on the economy which people have serious questions about.

:04:09.:04:13.

It onto the Financial Times, and Vladimir Putin is warning Donald

:04:14.:04:20.

Trump that military hysteria risks catastrophe. This is a man who has

:04:21.:04:24.

never had military hysteria in his life! This is the so-called brick

:04:25.:04:30.

summit, the big four emerging markets, Brazil, Russia, India and

:04:31.:04:35.

China, they formed an informal group and there is a summit going on in

:04:36.:04:40.

China and we have had trouble saying that Pyongyang, North Korea having

:04:41.:04:45.

carried out nuclear tests recently, I think the phrase he used was

:04:46.:04:52.

begging for war. Putin has come back saying that Trump should not engage

:04:53.:04:57.

in war hysteria. The key point being that of course if there are

:04:58.:05:02.

sanctions by the US against North Korea, unless they are unilateral

:05:03.:05:08.

sections, if they are UN sanctions, both Russia and China are able to

:05:09.:05:11.

sanction them as permanent members of the Security Council. Given that

:05:12.:05:18.

it is at a BRIC summit, there is no way that Putin would say that unless

:05:19.:05:23.

Beijing was on site. And it helps us get into the mindset of the North

:05:24.:05:28.

Koreans because Putin is saying they would rather eat grass than give up

:05:29.:05:32.

their weapons programme. He knows what it is like to have the west

:05:33.:05:37.

say, you can't do this, and also what it is like to use your military

:05:38.:05:42.

might to force the West to take you seriously and give you a place at

:05:43.:05:46.

the International table. He doesn't like being under sanctions either.

:05:47.:05:49.

He said the sanctions regime has run its course, it is ineffective.

:05:50.:06:07.

Exactly. And onto the the i, the Archbishop of Canterbury makes an

:06:08.:06:10.

extraordinary political intervention. We are quite used in

:06:11.:06:15.

the past two Archbishop of Canterbury having a go at the

:06:16.:06:19.

inequalities of capitalism but I guessed Justin Welby as not being as

:06:20.:06:27.

outspoken as in the past. He used to be a banker. He knows a bit about

:06:28.:06:33.

how the economy works. How unfair society can be! He has been in the

:06:34.:06:44.

trenches. It is good to have someone from the real world in such a high

:06:45.:06:49.

ecclesiastical post. The actually says that Britain Boka economic

:06:50.:06:54.

model is broken and it no longer functions but he is not proposing an

:06:55.:07:00.

alternative -- Britain's economic model. I suspect he wants to make

:07:01.:07:05.

this model work better and that the benefit of economic growth seem to

:07:06.:07:09.

be going into profit rather than wages. He has aligned himself with

:07:10.:07:20.

the IPPR think tank, which has come up with numbers showing that of GDP,

:07:21.:07:28.

the whole economy, 80% was going towards wages in the 1970s and now

:07:29.:07:33.

it is just 73% also another interesting thing, it is not just

:07:34.:07:37.

the Archbishop saying I wish the world was a fairer place, he has

:07:38.:07:44.

actually attacked the tech giants, Facebook, Google, Amazon, saying

:07:45.:07:48.

they are too powerful and that is an important emerging theme in

:07:49.:07:51.

political discourse around the world at the moment. In the past prime

:07:52.:07:55.

ministers would be upset by this sort of thing and I remember

:07:56.:07:59.

Margaret Thatcher getting very upset by whoever the Archbishop was at the

:08:00.:08:04.

time for producing similar sort of quotes. Actually this unfairness in

:08:05.:08:09.

the economy is something Theresa May as talked about when she first came

:08:10.:08:12.

to Downing Street so let's see what notice she takes. Talking about

:08:13.:08:21.

unfairness and pay and money, the BBC is to launch a major review of

:08:22.:08:24.

salaries! Five! -- Clive... We don't need to go any

:08:25.:08:42.

further on this! A major review of salaries. This isn't news, really?

:08:43.:08:49.

We know what happened earlier in the year. Careful because your boss, the

:08:50.:08:58.

great Tony Hall, of course this been a big story over the summer, 96 BBC

:08:59.:09:03.

presenters have been named as earning more than ?150,000. The

:09:04.:09:09.

majority of calls were men which led to some concern. White men. A lot of

:09:10.:09:21.

the country is thinking they are all massively overpaid for reading out

:09:22.:09:24.

loud for a living but now the BBC has said they want to bring forward

:09:25.:09:31.

measures to address that gender a gap earlier. And of course all

:09:32.:09:37.

organisations with more than 250 staff, I think by early next year,

:09:38.:09:42.

are going to have to published figures on their gender pay gap. The

:09:43.:09:47.

BBC is getting with the programme. Or rather everyone else is getting

:09:48.:09:50.

with the BBC because they are way ahead in this field, even though it

:09:51.:09:55.

is pretty awful. Not by choice but to their credit are keeping the

:09:56.:09:59.

story on the front pages and we are talking about it. And by launching

:10:00.:10:05.

the review they are raising expectations and something will be

:10:06.:10:10.

done about it. Natural selection is reading Alzheimer's and asthma out

:10:11.:10:14.

of the gene pool, this is on the front page of the Daily Telegraph. I

:10:15.:10:20.

just don't get this story. I bet explain what it is, but apparently

:10:21.:10:24.

natural selection means that Alzheimer's and asthma may disappear

:10:25.:10:30.

because men with Alzheimer's tend to have fewer children. Alzheimer's is

:10:31.:10:34.

normally a disease of the elderly unless I am much mistaken. By and

:10:35.:10:41.

large, you can get early onset. Not necessarily at the time when most

:10:42.:10:44.

people are having children will stop I don't quite understand how it is

:10:45.:10:48.

just Alzheimer's and asthma that will be up for that we are not

:10:49.:10:54.

clever enough to understand. The research is from the universities of

:10:55.:11:01.

Cambridge and Columbia. It is a subtle signal, says one of the

:11:02.:11:04.

researchers, but we find genetic evidence that natural selection is

:11:05.:11:08.

happening in modern human populations. The only reason it is

:11:09.:11:15.

not the lead story in the Daily Express... They couldn't understand

:11:16.:11:21.

it either! I have done Brexit! Does say that it could be bred out of the

:11:22.:11:24.

human species within a few thousand years. In time for the next

:11:25.:11:33.

election! Dog walkers told to carry two plastic bags. Some don't carry

:11:34.:11:37.

any and that makes me very angry, I have to say! I am a dog walker. We

:11:38.:11:43.

are both dog walkers. And you both carry bags? If we said no on

:11:44.:11:50.

television we would be arrested! And a plastic bag to pick up the poop.

:11:51.:12:02.

All I can say about my dog, Jake, that is the third mention you have

:12:03.:12:08.

that today. Sometimes two plastic bags is not enough! You have not met

:12:09.:12:13.

my dog! This is Canterbury City Council, the story has emerged that

:12:14.:12:19.

they may find dog walkers ?80 if they do not have two plastic bags

:12:20.:12:24.

which led us to speculate, if one is used, do you have to carry it around

:12:25.:12:32.

in its form? Just find the nearest bin! That is my message to dog

:12:33.:12:37.

walkers. It has been described as using a sledgehammer to crack a nut!

:12:38.:12:41.

Thank you for looking at these stories will stop many thanks to you

:12:42.:12:47.

for watching and don't forget that you can see the front pages of all

:12:48.:12:51.

the papers online on the BBC News website.

:12:52.:12:54.

It's all there for you - seven days a week at

:12:55.:12:57.

bbc.co.uk/papers and if you miss the programme any

:12:58.:12:59.

evening you can watch it later on BBC iPlayer

:13:00.:13:05.

Jake will watch it on iPlayer. He might get his own Twitter feed like

:13:06.:13:14.
