Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow.
With me are John Rentoul,
Chief Political Commentator
at The Independent, and political
strategist Jo Tanner.
She does appear on other paper
reviews but we won't mention them.
Welcome to this one. And now to the
The Metro claims that the special
relationship between the US
and the UK looks to be in jeopardy
following the row over Donald
Trump's anti-muslim twitter posts.
The FT says the Labour Leader,
Jeremy Corbyn has warned banks
operating in the City of London,
that he would be a threat
to their business if he
became Prime Minister.
The Express leads on the medical
research which suggests that eating
cheese could slash the risk
of heart disease.
The I says British and American
diplomats are trying
to repair the damage caused
by the public falling out between
Donald Trump and Theresa May.
The Mirror reports on the calls
to prosecute the US president
for race hate over his tweets.
The paper says the best response
would be to cancel his state visit.
The Times reports that
Far-right group Britain First
has been boasting of an increase
in support after Donald Trump
re-tweeted the group's
The Guardian covers the research
which has found that
children as young as two
are being streamed on ability.
And The Sun leads on two
of the army's 'hero hounds'
which are facing being put down
because officials say
they can't be rehomed.
There is a lot of Donald Trump in
this review. As you might have
guessed. We start with The Daily
Mirror, not wanted, it says, with
the mock up of a Western poster.
Calls to cancel the state visit, but
that won't happen?
This is the visit
that was presented to Donald Trump
when Theresa May went on her visit
to meet him but I'm not sure we
really ever thought this visit was
going to happen anyway. It has been
put off and put off and not spoken
about and we have deliberately not
wanted to organise a date, like

Of course not! There is
now a clamour to say that he
shouldn't be coming but actually I
think there has been an effort to
dampen down the conversation about
it even happening at all.
the suggestion that there was
indecent haste offering the state
visit in the first place, not
letting him bed in and finding out
what kind of presidency it was going
It was one of those decisions
of Theresa May's that has come back
to bite her, but you could see her
reasoning. You want to get in there
early and impress the new president
and you want to improve relations
between Britain and America
especially because a Brexit, we are
going to need a trade deal with
America. It has backfired rather
spectacularly, and it is not as
simple as The Daily Mirror implies,
to on invite him, because the Queen
has invited him as the head of
state. He has accepted and therefore
it is quite awkward for the
government to get the Queen to
disinvite him, that would not go

Yes, so the
ideal solution is to keep putting

I don't quite know how
that works, but no doubt that will
be explained on further pages of The

hope so, yes.
This isn't the first
argument, there are historical
items, difficulties between Thatcher
and Reagan is never got over them,
and issues between Tony Blair and
Bill Clinton over Gerry Adams.

This will be at the back of the

The Daily Telegraph also has
the Kop story, he will not visit the
UK in the foreseeable future -- the
Trump story. He was going to come
here quite soon?
The idea is that
after the initial visit offer had
been made and it was accepted, there
was the suggestion it would be this
year and then it got, the narrative
would be it would be around the new
US embassy opening and that would be
the reason, some flagship event, but

Exactly. Theresa May
was in a bind, she had to say
something about what he had put out
She did, she was pretty
forceful about it, saying it was
completely wrong. She wants to
condemn it without drawing too much
attention to this awful group and
giving them the oxygen and
publicity. She was as robust as she

specific, it was wrong of him, and
Amber Rudd also repeated that in the
House of Commons, very specific
language. It wasn't that Donald
Trump was wrong, it was wrong to
have tweeted that, it was very
careful language. When the number

and answered this question, very
soon afterwards it was reiterated
that they were speaking on behalf of
the Prime Minister which is unusual,
they don't always do that, but it
was made very clear that she was
very firm about her condemnation.
The Ambassador of the United States
has made representations to the
White House, but the idea that
Donald Trump did this without
thinking about the consequences, do
you buy that?
Well, does he think
about consequences? He knows how
this will play with his supporters
in the states. This is just the way
he operates. He is like a teenager.

big bank gamblers and speculators,
not any bank.
He has gone after
Morgan Stanley, which had predicted
snap elections next year and argued
the prospect is much more scary from
the equity perspective than Brexit,

that a Jeremy Corbyn government
would mark the most significant
political shift in the UK since
Margaret Thatcher and might pose a
bigger risk than Brexit, so Jeremy
Corbyn has decided to lash out in
He doesn't like to be
compared to Brexit, clearly,
although he might be a secret Brexit
supporter, although he said he voted
to remain. If the banks are going to
