Coming up in a moment, The Papers.

0:00:000:00:00

That's all from us, good night.

0:00:000:00:01

Welcome to our look ahead to what

the papers will bring in the

0:00:180:00:20

morning. Steve Hawkes is the Deputy

political editor at the some

0:00:200:00:28

newspaper. Welcome both of you. We

will start with the FT, which leaves

0:00:280:00:35

newspaper. Welcome both of you. We

will start with the FT, which leaves

0:00:350:00:36

with the resignation of savvy are

rarely as the chief executive of the

0:00:360:00:39

London stock exchange after eight

years in the post. The Daily Express

0:00:390:00:44

details a new treatment designed by

scientists which the paper claims

0:00:440:00:49

could cure lower back pain for

millions of people. EU leaders will

0:00:490:00:54

offer a two-year Brexit transition

deal in January after a breakthrough

0:00:540:00:57

in talks over the Northern Ireland

border issue.

0:00:570:01:02

Trees May could face a revolt from

some Tory Eurosceptics if the UK

0:01:020:01:07

pays the report and £50 billion

divorce bill, according to the

0:01:070:01:11

Guardian. -- Theresa May. Donald

Trump smack a state visit to the UK

0:01:110:01:16

could be in doubt after the

president retweeted those videos

0:01:160:01:18

posted by the far right group

Britain First.

0:01:180:01:24

The legal team for Michael Stone,

convicted of murdering a mother and

0:01:240:01:28

daughter in Kent in 1996, claim

another man, Levi Belfield, has made

0:01:280:01:34

a confession to the murders while

imprisoned. He has since denied that

0:01:340:01:39

claim.

0:01:390:01:40

Let's start with the FT. The

coverage of what Donald Trump has

0:01:430:01:49

been retweeting.

Donald Trump ended

up retweeting some incredibly

0:01:490:01:55

offensive videos. But also

retweeting them from an account

0:01:550:02:03

which belongs to Britain First. It

is the deputy leader of that

0:02:030:02:10

organisation who was actually jailed

recently because... Accused, I

0:02:100:02:15

should say, I don't know if he was

imprisoned, but accused of hurling

0:02:150:02:18

abuse at a woman in a hijab in

Luton. It's nasty. It's a group that

0:02:180:02:25

has no standing in British society.

Donald Trump goes and retweets these

0:02:250:02:32

horrible videos. It has attracted

quite a strong response from Downing

0:02:320:02:39

Street where Theresa May has said

that it is wrong for the president

0:02:390:02:43

to have done this. We have seen a

few other cabinet members in the

0:02:430:02:48

last couple of hours tweeting strong

condemnation, as well.

Clearly a lot

0:02:480:02:56

of people, they are extremely

unhappy about it, but it's

0:02:560:03:00

interesting now to see where Cabinet

here is beginning to out about it.

0:03:000:03:05

In all of the papers tomorrow you

have the line from Downing Street

0:03:050:03:09

which is quite strong, it says it's

wrong for the president to have done

0:03:090:03:13

this. Donald Trump is important to

Britain in the post-Brexit world.

0:03:130:03:16

It'll be interesting to see tomorrow

what Theresa May does. She has a

0:03:160:03:21

press conference in Jordan. I wonder

if she will address it...

She will

0:03:210:03:26

be asked...

Definitely. We've been

waiting all week for Donald Trump to

0:03:260:03:31

comment on Prince Harry and Meghan

Markle, but he endorses a hate

0:03:310:03:36

fuelled group. The things they say

are abhorrent. But why is he doing

0:03:360:03:48

this? He doesn't care about the

collateral damage here. In America

0:03:480:03:52

there is a close election in Alabama

at the moment. The Republicans are

0:03:520:03:56

fighting with the Democrats. He has

an issue of wanting to stop children

0:03:560:04:01

immigrants from getting a deal to

stay in America. You wonder if he's

0:04:010:04:05

playing to his base again. The

collateral damage it causes around

0:04:050:04:08

the world are so severe for his

domestic problems. He's the leader

0:04:080:04:13

of the free world. We want him to do

a with North Korea to stop nuclear

0:04:130:04:18

war. Instead of that he's doing

this.

We can show Sajid Javid's

0:04:180:04:27

tweet. That struck you breath when

you saw it in the office. -- struck

0:04:270:04:33

you both.

Yes. He said I refused to

let it go and say nothing. Contrast

0:04:330:04:41

that with the reaction of the people

around Donald Trump at the White

0:04:410:04:48

House. When it was mentioned, and

this is the FT story, that when this

0:04:480:04:53

question was raised Sarah Huckabee

Sanders, Donald Trump smack a

0:04:530:04:58

spokesperson said whether it is a

real video the threat is real. His

0:04:580:05:04

job is to promote strong border

security and strong national

0:05:040:05:06

security. What a pity you cannot do

that without posting these videos

0:05:060:05:12

and without promoting hatred.

That

will play to his supporters.

That's

0:05:120:05:18

it. You've had Boris Johnson

tweeting about this in our ago,

0:05:180:05:24

Sajid Javid, a strong tweet from him

ten minutes ago.

Hold that thought.

0:05:240:05:32

That is where The i takes us. Is it

feasible that that state might not

0:05:320:05:43

happen?

He has been controversial

for a while. Emmanuel Macron put out

0:05:430:05:48

all of the red-carpet treatment for

him in Paris. There was a military

0:05:480:05:51

fly past. It was incredible. And

he's meant to be a centrist leader.

0:05:510:05:58

It could still be done. I don't see

how Donald Trump could possibly come

0:05:580:06:01

in the next few months without there

being mass demonstrations in the

0:06:010:06:06

street, which he will want to avoid.

That would require the British

0:06:060:06:10

Government to say we don't want you

to come.

Which puts them in a tricky

0:06:100:06:14

position. This is one of our

strongest allies. We are meant to

0:06:140:06:20

find a way of working together for

the good of the world. And here is

0:06:200:06:25

this person who just constantly

jeopardises those relationships.

0:06:250:06:30

It's really frustrating for a lot of

people to see that he hasn't moved

0:06:300:06:34

away from his campaigning mode. It's

just got worse, it seems, in the way

0:06:340:06:39

he has behaved in office.

Let's move

on to Brexit matters. Take us to the

0:06:390:06:47

front of the times. Various aspects

of this story to have a look at. The

0:06:470:06:53

Times is going be on what they say

is an Irish border deal in the

0:06:530:06:57

offing. How close do we think, based

on what they are writing?

We've been

0:06:570:07:04

hearing for a while something was

about to move. It is high time it

0:07:040:07:08

did. We heard the story about us,

the UK side, being prepared to offer

0:07:080:07:14

a bit more money. And we had heard

for a long time that wants more

0:07:140:07:17

money was put on the table these are

the two issues, the Irish board or

0:07:170:07:22

the Citizens right issue, which were

meant to be the sticking points,

0:07:220:07:26

would find a way of being resolved.

The Irish border, if you ask me, was

0:07:260:07:31

always going to be one of the

difficult issues. Because of all the

0:07:310:07:35

sensitivities involved in the Irish

political system. What the border

0:07:350:07:38

was going to look like, etc. This

story is now quoting several sources

0:07:380:07:47

to say that it is very likely there

is going to be a transition deal by

0:07:470:07:51

January, after which we can move on

to talking about future trade. It

0:07:510:07:56

does seem like whatever was

discussed about the bill being a bit

0:07:560:08:03

more money on the table might have

worked wonders, and might have moved

0:08:030:08:06

things forward a little bit. The

about to happen between Theresa May

0:08:060:08:14

and Jean-Claude Juncker.

How does

this look to you, based on what the

0:08:140:08:22

Times has said?

It's a big

breakthrough. You have British

0:08:220:08:26

business saying we need a transition

deal by January. That is so people

0:08:260:08:31

can start moving production and

staff overseas. This is huge. The

0:08:310:08:35

Irish peace of the jigsaw has three

issues. Ireland is the most

0:08:350:08:40

controversial. In the 20 minutes

since we have seen this the DUP

0:08:400:08:46

don't sound worried, but the key bit

is what do you do with the North and

0:08:460:08:51

the Republic. It is complicated. But

does the North stay with the UK

0:08:510:08:56

instead, while there are talks about

having a republic in the EU. The

0:08:560:09:01

North this joint of Republic, how

does it stay in the UK and not be

0:09:010:09:05

part of the EU?

This would involve

the Government involving a package

0:09:050:09:11

of powers to Northern Ireland to

enable Customs convergence with the

0:09:110:09:15

Irish Republic on areas such as

agriculture.

And there are energy

0:09:150:09:21

plans which will be laid out.

Critically the DUP are going to be

0:09:210:09:26

OK with this. We can all move

forward. Then we have a transition

0:09:260:09:30

period which is critical to

business. It allows everybody to

0:09:300:09:35

talk about trade. You cannot

underestimate the importance of

0:09:350:09:38

this.

And there's no executive in

Northern Ireland which further

0:09:380:09:42

complicates things.

It certainly

does. The outlines of a standstill

0:09:420:09:47

transition arrangement effectively

prolong the EU membership are ready

0:09:470:09:51

to be tabled it says on this story.

That will still raise concerns about

0:09:510:09:56

how we are going to be moving

forward during that transition

0:09:560:10:00

period. That's what businesses have

always wanted to know. If you have a

0:10:000:10:05

standstill transition arrangement

you will only be moving the cliff

0:10:050:10:08

edge further ahead at some point.

You aren't going to avoid it. There

0:10:080:10:13

must be some sort of way to move

things forward while staying exactly

0:10:130:10:18

the same.

CHUCKLES

0:10:180:10:19

That means Britain stays in force to

reckon more years.

That has been a

0:10:190:10:23

rumour for a while.

We will come

onto this. You have had the

0:10:230:10:28

pro-Europeans, the ones who

campaigned for Remained being upset,

0:10:280:10:32

but that's beginning to switch to

the people who wanted to say, we can

0:10:320:10:36

walk away and we will be fine.

Take

us to the Guardian.

A seamless

0:10:360:10:41

transition... The idea now that we

are going to pay 40 billion, this is

0:10:410:10:47

how much we will give you. Already

there was a big debate where you had

0:10:470:10:51

the hard Brexiteers, the people who

were up for leaving saying why do we

0:10:510:10:55

have to pay anything? This isn't a

divorce bill we are leaving a club,

0:10:550:10:59

you don't have to pay money if you

leave the club. We can walk away. We

0:10:590:11:03

don't need Obama to get a deal.

These are people in the Labour Party

0:11:030:11:12

agree with people than the

Conservatives. The population out

0:11:120:11:15

there, the readers and viewers,

where have we found this £40 billion

0:11:150:11:19

to give to Brussels to help secure a

trade deal where we have people

0:11:190:11:23

starving, the NHS going into a

winter crisis, why should we pay

0:11:230:11:26

this? They might now block a deal.

How likely is that, do you think?

0:11:260:11:35

Some of the big beast like Michael

Gove and Boris Johnson, who had been

0:11:350:11:41

the main opposition in the Cabinet

to the remainders, it looks like

0:11:410:11:44

they are coming on board. -- to the

Remainers. We haven't got the figure

0:11:440:12:00

but it will be paid over a number of

years. It shouldn't come as a

0:12:000:12:04

massive shock to our finances.

And

we are told each year it will

0:12:040:12:09

gradually go down.

That's the idea.

Provided the Government has prepared

0:12:090:12:12

for it it shouldn't come as a shock

but we should be prepared.

Also it

0:12:120:12:18

is what the Government spends in a

week. That puts it into context.

It

0:12:180:12:23

does. What do they spend it on?

Exactly. What is the offshoot?

0:12:230:12:31

Exactly. Iain Duncan Smith said this

is the song, but in the long run we

0:12:310:12:36

will save vast amounts by no longer

paying into it. -- this is the sum.

0:12:360:12:42

Yvette Cooper was saying remember

that thing on the bus, 350 million,

0:12:420:12:47

you told us we would save that, now

you are telling us we have to pay 50

0:12:470:12:52

billion. People are still rerunning

the same arguments. We're in a much

0:12:520:12:58

better place than we were last week,

which is something to celebrate.

A

0:12:580:13:02

final word about the weather, which

takes us to the Daily Express. A

0:13:020:13:07

photograph from County Durham where

conditions for driving were

0:13:070:13:10

difficult yesterday as that

photograph would illustrate. It's

0:13:100:13:13

going to be called.

It is cold.

Let's hope we have a white Christmas

0:13:130:13:21

because it will put a smile on

everybody's face after all of this

0:13:210:13:25

happening in the world.

Are you

worried about cold weather?

Yes, I

0:13:250:13:30

am always cold. But it does look

beautiful.

It will allow us to

0:13:300:13:34

celebrate the great British

infrastructure of our trains which

0:13:340:13:38

will run without problem.

CHUCKLES
