a wreath at the Cenotaph in London.
Hello, and welcome to our look ahead
to what the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow.
With me are Tony Grew,
a parliamentary journalist,
and Caroline Frost,
Tomorrow's front pages, starting
The Metro leads with the news
that the Church of England
is advising nearly 5,000 schools
that children should be able
to choose what gender they want
to be without judgement or derision.
The Mail also leads
with the same story.
It says the Church advises that
schools must not use Christian
teachings to justify
behaviour that is considered
to amount to bullying.
It shows the Queen sheading a tear
at today's Remembrance Service
at the Cenotaph.
The Sun also leads
with the same story.
It says two-year-olds will be
getting lessons from drag queens
on gender fluidity.
The guardian leads with Government
tensions over Brexit.
It says Brexiteers,
Michael Gove and Boris Johnson,
have sent the Prime Minister what it
describes as "Orwellian" set
of demands ahead
of this weaks withdrawal bill vote.
The Telegraph leads
with a plea from the husband
of the British-Iranian
woman imprisoned in Iran.
He says he doesn't want to see
Boris Johnson sacked.
It also features the Queen
at today's Remembrance Services.
The Times also leads with the plight
of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe
jailed in Iran.
It says Michael Gove cast doubt
on her defence in an interview
with the BBC.
And finally, The FT leads
with news British spy chiefs
are worried anti virus software
given away by Barclays to two
million of their customers could be
used as an intelligence-gathering
tool by the Russian government.
It also covers Donald Trump's
meeting with the Filippino
counterpart in Manila yesterday.
Transgender and children is where we
will start on the Daily Mail. The
church says that little boys have
tiaras. That is the advice from the
Church of England. Eight simplistic
headline. -- A.
The Daily Mail have
lept on the most extreme example of
what the Church of England is
advertising. It is saying that it is
time for Church of England schools
to catch up with so much guidance in
terms of letting children be
children. We have seen examples of
children talking of pressure to
somehow conform to a gender they are
not comfortable with. This is
opening the church's gets on this
saying it is time to let them be who
they want. -- gates. It could be a
boy having a tiara, a girl with a
fireman's helmet. Fireperson.
just about being sensitive?
The Daily Mail has dressed this up.
That is what they do. They try to
make people angry. This is not about
transgender children, it is about
children, it is about boys not
feeling that within the Church of
England school they can behave how
they want. They have to aspire to
certain careers and cannot be
feminine, they cannot dress up. When
they say boys as young as five
should be able to have a tiara, they
don't mean they should wear one
every day, it is actually talking
about dressing up, periods where
children play. Not doing maths
Have and children always
They have. -- haven't.
The church is doing it because they
are worried they will be sued. They
provide education in the United
Kingdom. They do want to be in
breach of legislature. It actually
says that they will give backing to
ban discrimination against
transgender children. It is not much
about appropriate uniforms.
Personally, I don't think there
should be a difference in uniforms.
It has nothing to do with the tiny
amount of transgender children in
the country. I am confused why these
get twisted. This applies to all
children, letting them grow up and
The Times. Michael
Gove casting new doubt over the
mother jailed in Iran. There was an
interview this morning with Andrew
Marr. He was asked what was she
doing in Iran? He said he did not
Were always hearing about how
intelligent Michael Gove is. He
appeared quite stupid. He has cast
doubt on the fact she was on
holiday. This is after Boris Johnson
before Parliament last week saying
she was teaching journalists, which
is what Iran says she was doing and
what the Foreign Office says she
wasn't. They know what they are
seeing is casting doubt on the
government's official position. --
saying. It sounds like two people
trying to save their jobs. They are
trying to muddy the waters to make
sure Boris Johnson does not take any
more flak for it.
Her husband says
she is not well.
He said do not sack

Johnson. I disagree, I think Michael
Gove is intimidatingly intelligent.
This was in key A class fudge. A
year ago he said Boris Johnson could
not hold the position. Now he is
saying we should not deflect. He is
arming himself firmly on the same
side of the Rubicon as Boris
Johnson. He is thinking about Brexit
and wants to keep the macro if that
means being disingenuous, so be it.
-- keep the cartel pretty firm. .
These people are cabinet ministers.
They either don't understand the
brief, the government's position, or
write deliberately misrepresenting
Michael Gove is coming
in. Again, attempting to create
confusion, uncertainty, about the
British government's official
position, that if she is innocent

could step in. -- released. It would
be better to have him sort that out.
If we had a credible Foreign
Secretary, it would. He isn't. He

government told about a British
citizen in front of Parliament.

The Telegraph. Brexit.
Michel Barnier hints the EU pet ban
will stop us taking pooches back and
forwards. A low blow.
We will see
more and more threats as we get to
the crunch. Negotiations with the EU
are about money as everything else.
The bureaucrats and negotiators in
Brussels I tried to make the British
people understand how serious this

relying on the love of pets in the

Some leverage. But it was about
keeping rabies at bay, always.
Rees-Mogg has been the first to say
he would be happy with this if it
means we do not get rabies, or what
he calls rabid eurocrats.

Confused by a headline!
I am not qualified to discuss these
issues as I don't drive much. It
says there are 1.3 5 million jams in
