Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers will be

0:00:180:00:22

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:220:00:23

With me are Kate Proctor,

political correspondent

0:00:230:00:24

at the London Evening Standard

and the broadcaster John Stapleton.

0:00:240:00:32

The Daily Express says that EU

membership is costing the UK nearly

0:00:320:00:35

£1 billion a month -

almost treble the amount quoted

0:00:350:00:38

by the leave campaign.

0:00:380:00:40

The Metro has more on the removal of

Kevin Spacey from an upcoming film -

0:00:400:00:45

as the controversy continues

over his alleged sexual misconduct.

0:00:450:00:51

Priti Patel's replacement

Penny Mourdant's leads on The FT-

0:00:510:00:57

which has according to the fuelled

pressure on Theresa May to carry out

0:00:570:01:00

a big cabinet reshuffle.

0:01:000:01:04

The Telegraph reports

that the Prime Minister has told

0:01:040:01:06

pro-European Tory rebels

that she will not "tolerate" any

0:01:060:01:09

attempts to undermine Brexit -

as the Government tables

0:01:090:01:12

Brexit is also the lead for The I -

which talks about Brexiteers

0:01:120:01:15

acceptance for a bigger divorce

settlement and Downing Street's

0:01:150:01:18

worry about voter backlash.

0:01:180:01:21

The Guardian has more on Brexit -

but also features a picture

0:01:210:01:24

of Donald Trump and the Chinese

President Xi Jinping

0:01:240:01:26

on his tour of Asia.

0:01:260:01:29

Kevin Spacey's career is in tatters

according to the Times

0:01:290:01:31

following the director

Ridley Scott's decision to erase him

0:01:310:01:33

for his new film only six

weeks before its release.

0:01:330:01:35

Let's start with Kate, talk to us

about the Financial Times. Penny

0:01:430:01:47

Mordaunt is on the front page as she

is on a lot of the papers. As the

0:01:470:01:53

replacement for Priti Patel after a

very difficult week for the Prime

0:01:530:01:56

Minister.

It has been a torrid

couple of weeks for Theresa May.

A

0:01:560:02:02

good week for a political journalist

like yourself!

It has been a busy

0:02:020:02:07

time for recess. Penny Mordaunt has

come in and she is supposed to be a

0:02:070:02:13

breath of fresh air. New blood

coming into the cabinet. By all

0:02:130:02:17

accounts she is well liked by her

colleagues. She was working as a

0:02:170:02:24

disability is minister beforehand.

Now she takes the role as

0:02:240:02:28

International Development Secretary.

I think it will be really

0:02:280:02:31

well-suited to her. I think there

was a little bit of disappointment

0:02:310:02:36

that there was not a wider

reshuffle. There is concern about

0:02:360:02:41

Boris Johnson still and we still

have some of those allegations from

0:02:410:02:46

the sexual harassment.

We will talk

about Boris Johnson in a minute. But

0:02:460:02:51

John, the express has a picture of

Penny Mordaunt in her swimsuit. That

0:02:510:02:56

is the picture they have chosen to

use, what do you make of that?

A lot

0:02:560:03:01

of this is why not? She went like

this, but she is probably better

0:03:010:03:06

remembered for her appearance on

Splash than anything in politics

0:03:060:03:10

which is probably unfair but true.

It was for charity which shows her

0:03:100:03:15

as a good egg to raise money for a

good cause. Why not I suppose? But

0:03:150:03:20

the express being the express are

using it as an excuse to run a

0:03:200:03:27

headline making a splash penny and

slash foreign aid. Something else

0:03:270:03:29

they are very keen on and they can

advocate on now she is in the job

0:03:290:03:35

but I doubt very much it will. What

she does is even up the balance of

0:03:350:03:43

Brexiteers and remain voters and

also keeps up the female camp to the

0:03:430:03:46

Cabinet.

The swimming costume is

unfortunate because of this

0:03:460:03:56

international role where she will be

visiting countries all over the

0:03:560:03:59

world where modest dress is more

appropriate. I'm sure it is very

0:03:590:04:04

unfortunate and she would not think

hurts in days would end up on the

0:04:040:04:11

front page.

We mentioned Boris

Johnson, the other Cabinet minister

0:04:110:04:16

who has been in some trouble over

the last few stays. The Mirror say,

0:04:160:04:23

sack him, a minister on the brink.

Eating she is still on the brink?

0:04:230:04:28

Yes. There are such anger about his

comments and I speak to her husband

0:04:280:04:37

all the time and they are very

concerned. He's misspeaking is very

0:04:370:04:44

serious. The conditions that she is

being held in our horrific. He did

0:04:440:04:51

he did issue a qualified apology.

He

needs to explain those remarks at

0:04:510:04:56

the very least. When he said she was

their training journalists which

0:04:560:05:01

have now been seized on by

journalists in Iran as guilty. He

0:05:010:05:09

needs to explain that remark. His

so-called apology was so

0:05:090:05:12

half-hearted. He said I appreciate I

could have been clearer. It was

0:05:120:05:18

abundantly clear what he said, she

said she said was their training

0:05:180:05:22

journalists.

He did not say she was

their training journalists, but he

0:05:220:05:28

did say she was training...

But

those remarks were taken out of

0:05:280:05:36

context... What context?

Teasing he

can survive this? Busy too big for

0:05:360:05:42

Theresa May to fire?

She is still

wedded to the idea that Boris is a

0:05:420:05:48

figurehead of books that and needs

him because he has that power to

0:05:480:05:52

draw people to Brexit and keep

people thinking that it will be OK.

0:05:520:06:01

-- figurehead of Brexit. Right now

she thinks he is in asset.

And how

0:06:010:06:07

many sackings can she afford right

now?

We now have the Telegraph, I

0:06:070:06:17

suppose this goes to how strong she

is at the moment, or how weak is

0:06:170:06:21

she? The word in Brussels is that

she is being viewed as increasingly

0:06:210:06:27

weakened...

This is a move by the

Government to say we will not

0:06:270:06:31

tolerate any backsliding here. We

have set a date and time believing

0:06:310:06:34

and that is it. She does not want

anyone to create amendments to the

0:06:340:06:41

withdrawal bill, she does not want

anyone using that to slow the

0:06:410:06:44

process. She is saying, we want to

emerge from this is a strong, united

0:06:440:06:51

Government and we don't want any

backsliding is.

She is trying to

0:06:510:06:54

assert her authority in a difficult

time. Even if this amendment goes

0:06:540:07:00

through and we have the Brexit date

put into law. We still have to

0:07:000:07:05

content with the fact of deadlock in

Brussels. We're not hearing any more

0:07:050:07:09

positive noises from there.

On that,

also in the terror group, Irish

0:07:090:07:15

border demands threaten trade talks.

It is pressure now from another

0:07:150:07:22

country, Ireland is saying they want

to know what is happening between

0:07:220:07:27

the border. They want clarity on

that before Britain continues with

0:07:270:07:32

the talks. We have the EU wanting to

talk about the divorce Bill, you

0:07:320:07:36

have Ireland wanting to talk about

the border, and right now we are

0:07:360:07:39

still in a position of stalemate. It

is another headache for the Prime

0:07:390:07:42

Minister.

Still on Brexit... It is

hard to get away from it!

What would

0:07:420:07:48

you do without a?!

The express is

talking about our true Brexit bill.

0:07:480:07:59

This is done by a high-flying city

analyst who says the true cost of

0:07:590:08:05

Brexit per year is 1980 million.

Don't forget of course

a week...

A

0:08:050:08:13

week, sorry. He says the actual cost

is 980 million. I suspect that

0:08:130:08:22

figure will be challenged. To arrive

at that figure he is thrown in

0:08:220:08:27

everything but the kitchen sink. He

has talked about adding the 12

0:08:270:08:30

billion a year lost to the Exchequer

of legal tax avoidance which would

0:08:300:08:36

wouldn't happen if we were in the

EU. He talks about the cost of

0:08:360:08:41

migrants, a lot of people will

challenge this, once the tax they

0:08:410:08:45

have paid from the benefits, that is

£30 billion a year for migrants.

0:08:450:08:48

He's even throwing in the 2 billion

that tax wastage of the EU foreign

0:08:480:08:54

aid budget. Many people argue that

many of those things should not be

0:08:540:08:59

in there anyway and what about the

rebate we get?

On to the Metro,

0:08:590:09:04

Kevin Spacey was once a Hollywood

icon, and now seems to be a pariah.

0:09:040:09:12

He is cut out of this film only six

weeks away from release. He has been

0:09:120:09:17

really edited and seminars brought

into play his part.

I do not have

0:09:170:09:21

much sympathy for Kevin Spacey. The

allegations are ongoing and he is

0:09:210:09:26

being investigated. It this phone

company had the means to write him

0:09:260:09:29

out then you should do. How can you

have a lead character with all those

0:09:290:09:33

allegations hanging over them? That

it's just the consequences of what

0:09:330:09:37

has happened. I think they have made

the right decision.

It is probably a

0:09:370:09:43

financial decision as well as a

moral decision arguably because they

0:09:430:09:47

do not want it on to lose money.

I

do not want to sound too

0:09:470:09:52

controversial, I agree with you. But

on the other hand we still had Woody

0:09:520:09:56

Allen making films and Roman

Polanski is barred from America but

0:09:560:10:00

he still makes films that people

watch. You wonder...

Would you

0:10:000:10:08

boycott Harvey Weinstein films?

I

probably would. I have spoken to

0:10:080:10:12

other people my age who are unhappy

with what has happened and it will

0:10:120:10:18

factor into decision-making about

going to the cinema. They will not

0:10:180:10:20

see a film where someone has been

accused of sexual harassment.

0:10:200:10:28

Cinemagoers will make their views

known and you may see impact on

0:10:280:10:31

revenue.

A quick word on the

Financial Times, they have got

0:10:310:10:41

Prevent. The Government's

anti-radicalisation policy.

This is

0:10:410:10:45

a interesting story. New figures

show that 7600 referrals were

0:10:450:10:55

made...

One boy was nine years old.

A lot of these referrals are by

0:10:550:11:02

people in the teaching profession

and not the police. They are

0:11:020:11:05

spotting signs of youngsters who are

perhaps showing tendencies. You will

0:11:050:11:12

also have to point out that this is

not just people sympathising with

0:11:120:11:20

so-called Islamic State, but also

neo-Nazis as well. What they are

0:11:200:11:30

actually doing... They can give you

too much detail.

Also in the

0:11:300:11:35

Financial Times, diesel getting a

tax rate in the budget?

The budget

0:11:350:11:38

coming up on this 22nd of November.

Philip Hammond has got a big

0:11:380:11:43

decision to make on how he goes

forward with diesel cars. And the

0:11:430:11:47

idea is that there might be higher

taxes. That might be a higher rate

0:11:470:11:52

tax or a different levy altogether.

Or it might be a tax on

0:11:520:11:56

point-of-sale, those are all his

considerations for the budget which

0:11:560:11:59

will no doubt interviews diesel car

owners even more!

Just a show in a

0:11:590:12:04

minute we will show original

countdown. Because BBC News 24 is 20

0:12:040:12:13

years old today.

Happy birthday!

You

have been around the scene for a

0:12:130:12:20

time, it is always a changing

landscape, but BBC news has been

0:12:200:12:25

around for quite a time now.

Congratulations for having it around

0:12:250:12:31

so long. There was a lot of cynicism

around at, who will watch 24 hour

0:12:310:12:35

news? But it has been a great

success, you had a reach of 7

0:12:350:12:41

million viewers and you news channel

of the year.

You are very kind! The

0:12:410:12:45

cheque is in the post!

I mean it.

Thank you very much. I was going to

0:12:450:12:53

thank you anyway, but thank you!

0:12:530:12:56

That's it for the papers tonight.

0:12:560:12:57

Don't forget you can see the front

pages of the papers online

0:12:570:13:00

on the BBC News website.

0:13:000:13:01

It's all there for you - seven days

a week at bbc.co.uk/papers -

0:13:010:13:04

and if you miss the programme any

evening you can watch it

0:13:040:13:07

later on BBC iPlayer.

0:13:070:13:11

In a moment I'll be

back with the headlines

0:13:110:13:13

and after the weather we'll show

you BBC News 24's first ever

0:13:130:13:16

countdown but for now thank

you to Kate Proctor and John

0:13:160:13:18

Stapleton.

0:13:180:13:19

Goodbye.
