The Papers. See you soon.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead

0:00:130:00:16

to what the the papers will be

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:160:00:19

With me are Michael Booker,

Deputy Editor of the Daily Express

0:00:190:00:22

and Lainy Malkani,

journalist and author.

0:00:220:00:24

Tomorrow's front pages.

Starting with...

0:00:240:00:31

The Financial Times that says

Bitcoin prices on the biggest

0:00:310:00:36

exchanges diverged wildly in a

session that exposed the fragile

0:00:360:00:42

trading infrastructure of the

currency.ened The Times: Ready to

0:00:420:00:47

work through the night to reach a

compromise on the Irish border

0:00:470:00:51

issue. And the Daily Mail: And

comments that British terrorists

0:00:510:00:58

should be killed.

And the Garde: A report by the

0:00:580:01:06

Government's spending watchdog that

students are failed by universities

0:01:060:01:09

in England with one in three saying

that they receive value for money.

0:01:090:01:15

And the Daily Mirror carries a royal

exclusive, Megan Markle's dad says

0:01:150:01:22

he would love to give his daughter

away. And the #k7 Daily Express and

0:01:220:01:31

Arctic weathers with subzero

temperatures likely to last

0:01:310:01:34

throughout the week next week. Let's

start with the Telegraph.

0:01:340:01:39

EU expects May to sign a deal today.

Everyone was expecting on Monday

0:01:390:01:48

that the break through would occur.

Very excited, the bunting is out. As

0:01:480:01:54

it says here, barring last-minute

slip-ups. We have seen a few before.

0:01:540:02:00

One in here, again it is talking

about the signing off with the DUP.

0:02:000:02:04

As we found out on Monday that is a

key thing. So Theresa May is working

0:02:040:02:09

through the night. The Telegraph

have done it in a benign way. Saying

0:02:090:02:14

it is calm and fine. Them being a

Brexit newspaper. Donald Tusk to be

0:02:140:02:22

talking before the markets open at

6.50am. But it does seem as though

0:02:220:02:28

there is news on a deal. We have

agreed £50 billion and the residence

0:02:280:02:35

rights for the I nationals and now

the Irish problem but they seem to

0:02:350:02:40

have gotten somewhere with.

The key words are what you pointed

0:02:400:02:46

out "barring" that is the caveat. As

we don't know. We know they are work

0:02:460:02:52

through the night. The Times, the

Financial Times head lines uses

0:02:520:02:59

three Fs in the first two

paragraphs, frantic, frenetic, that

0:02:590:03:06

Theresa May is being forced into

talks and she may or may not be

0:03:060:03:10

going to Brussels tomorrow. So it is

frantic and frenetic but...

That is

0:03:100:03:19

the difference between the Telegraph

but everything is calm with the FT.

0:03:190:03:24

Brussels is having its arm twisted

but dealing with the DUP. There was

0:03:240:03:28

a source who told the Sun that they

will not blink as we have taken our

0:03:280:03:33

eyelids off. That is how tough they

are.

0:03:330:03:36

It was surprising on Monday that

things had not been squared off with

0:03:360:03:43

the DUP, you think they might have

talked with them in advance?

That is

0:03:430:03:47

right. You wonder what is going on

behind the scenes. The public

0:03:470:03:52

persona that it is calm, that it is

under control and the discussions

0:03:520:03:57

are going ahead but behind the

scenes what is happening. If the DUP

0:03:570:04:01

were not aware. If Theresa May had

to come out of that lunch at the

0:04:010:04:05

time to have the conversations, if

the DUP had to then make their own

0:04:050:04:10

statement, basically, telling us all

that they are not satisfied with the

0:04:100:04:14

talks.

To be fair they have looked

hapless at times. But this is

0:04:140:04:20

unchartered territory. We have never

had to deal with something as big as

0:04:200:04:23

this for a long time. On both sides,

it is easy for the EU to be

0:04:230:04:30

intransigent. So what you have to

remember, this is a deal to get a

0:04:300:04:33

deal. We are not anywhere yet!

We

are read being deals and deadlines,

0:04:330:04:39

people thinking it is sorted but it

is a deal to just start talking

0:04:390:04:43

about trade.

Exactly. What was interesting,

0:04:430:04:47

yesterday when the EU said that they

were working until Sunday, the

0:04:470:04:52

working week goes up until Sunday so

that this means this could go up to

0:04:520:04:57

the wire.

Eurocrats working at the weekend!

0:04:570:05:03

And the true deadline...

That is

March 2019. So they are putting the

0:05:030:05:09

pressure on. But the truth is

between the calmness of the Daily

0:05:090:05:15

Telegraph and the frantic nature of

the FT but it is in there for

0:05:150:05:23

goodness knows how long to come.

And the other story on the front

0:05:230:05:28

page of the FT, a company reporting

zero gender pay gaps that are

0:05:280:05:32

inaccurate. Companies are not

telling the truth about what this

0:05:320:05:35

epay?

Yes, one in 20 companies have

submitted gender pay figures and

0:05:350:05:41

looked at it and said that they are

improbable, therefore, inaccurate.

0:05:410:05:46

But the companies if they have more

than 250 employees they have to

0:05:460:05:51

submit the figures to see the

differences in the pay gaps,

0:05:510:05:56

submitting the mind the median

figures. They have been putting them

0:05:560:05:58

in, they are the same. The

statisticians are saying this is

0:05:580:06:03

untrue. Impossible. So they are

either one that they are lying, two,

0:06:030:06:10

they don't know the mean and the

median, or three, they don't care

0:06:100:06:14

about it.

Or four, they don't think

they would be found out. To me, if

0:06:140:06:19

you put forward figures to say this

is what you are doing, the reality

0:06:190:06:24

of the situation, as we have seen in

the run up to this, that there is a

0:06:240:06:29

massive gender pay gap. Women are

pushing the boundaries, saying this

0:06:290:06:33

must stop. So that is to me the

fourth dimension. They thought that

0:06:330:06:38

they would not be found out.

So you get the impression that they

0:06:380:06:43

are not taking it seriously. So what

does the Government do, name and

0:06:430:06:47

shame us, we will go away but there

are no penalties.

0:06:470:06:52

But openness and honesty about the

figures is crucial to the process?

0:06:520:06:56

It is. Hugo Boss, they it had theirs

pointed out it was unequal but then

0:06:560:07:08

that there was a 32% pay gap.

Now the Mail. The fuss about the

0:07:080:07:14

Mail's headline yesterday with the

interview with the new Defence

0:07:140:07:18

Secretary, talking about them

killing British jihadis is: I will

0:07:180:07:25

not back down headline in the

morning? It is the sort of thing

0:07:250:07:29

that the right-wing readers want to

hear it. A lot will be happy to see

0:07:290:07:35

that happen, given the terrorism

happening on our shores. Gavin

0:07:350:07:40

Williams is trying to talk tough.

Setting the stall out early on.

0:07:400:07:44

There has been a back lash, as they

are saying in the Mail, enraged

0:07:440:07:50

liberals. Not everyone likes to see

slaughter. That is fair enough. But

0:07:500:07:54

they are saying that they are

legitimate targets for military

0:07:540:07:58

strikes.

What's the alternative? February

0:07:580:08:05

they are detained, what happens

then? They cannot be killed in me

0:08:050:08:10

are detained, can they. I am

wondering whether or not he is

0:08:100:08:15

sending out a message, as you said,

he is new in the job. He is now

0:08:150:08:20

sending a message to say he is

tough.

0:08:200:08:23

Snow

If he said we will let them in

the country and everything would be

0:08:230:08:28

fine, there would be an up roar. So

he is going the other way. Saying

0:08:280:08:35

that they are legitimate and

therefore a threat.

0:08:350:08:39

And senior public prosecutions and

so on have raced questions about

0:08:390:08:42

whether or not it would be legal to

actually kill people who have gone

0:08:420:08:48

out to join IS?

That's it. What are

the circumstances but as he is

0:08:480:08:55

talking in big headlines and he

wants to show he is a tough guy, we

0:08:550:08:59

don't know about the detail what he

means. This will go down well with

0:08:590:09:06

Mail readers and others, as he is

saying he is not backing down. We

0:09:060:09:11

have had it this week with the

failings in the MI5 MI5, the

0:09:110:09:15

terrorist attacks where a lot of

people have died.

And is there a

0:09:150:09:20

message, about him saying he will

not back down in terms of Brexit and

0:09:200:09:25

has May backed down?

Well, he does

want to be the Prime Minister

0:09:250:09:29

eventually. A lot of politicians

have that idea.

0:09:290:09:35

Goodness me, now the Times the

Bitcoin bonanza takes hold of the

0:09:350:09:43

wormed markets? Laney?

I didn't know

hot air cost so much. What are

0:09:430:09:49

Bitcoins. It is a cryptow currency

that people are getting excited

0:09:490:09:54

about and spending up to £20,000

just for one wit coin but I'm not

0:09:540:10:01

sure. I had a conversation with a

student who was thinking of buying

0:10:010:10:08

into the crypto currency. There are

others on the markets but I just

0:10:080:10:14

find the whole thing, there is

nothing tangible. I'm not sure where

0:10:140:10:21

you spend your Bitcoins, and also

the volatility in the markets in

0:10:210:10:25

terms of worth.

It is massive.

Bitcoins are doing

0:10:250:10:32

better than the pound?

They are but

it looks like it will be a bubble.

0:10:320:10:38

I heard earlier on the BBC, somebody

being interviewed, it is the fear of

0:10:380:10:42

missing out. They are piling money

into it, as they are seeing others

0:10:420:10:47

piling money into it. The bubble

will burst.

0:10:470:10:52

Robert Skiller has told the Times it

will crash. There is a warning.

0:10:520:10:57

Good luck everyone.

-- Robert Schiller.

0:10:570:11:06

Now, Gordon Ramsey, he is

complaining that too many are coming

0:11:060:11:10

into the restaurant complaining that

they are intolerant of gluten,

0:11:100:11:15

wheat, garlic or tomato.

It says here that 50 customers -- in

0:11:150:11:26

Raymond Blanc's restaurant, that 50

customers come in with issues over

0:11:260:11:31

food. The reality is if you have

allergies, you have allergies, no

0:11:310:11:35

chef wants to put themselves in a

position where they have a customer

0:11:350:11:41

who has turned ill because of a

result of this.

0:11:410:11:45

It can be serious.

He is talking

about people who are saying that

0:11:450:11:52

they are gassy when they have eggs,

which I'm sure a lot of people do.

0:11:520:11:57

But he says it is part of the trendy

eating culture. I suppose if they

0:11:570:12:04

are 50 customers, getting their

bespoke dishes from Raymond Blanc,

0:12:040:12:09

you would feel rather special.

He is a Michelin starred chef,

0:12:090:12:15

surely he can cope?

As customers we

are demanding the things we want. It

0:12:150:12:19

is not cheap to eat in a two-star

Michelin restaurant.

0:12:190:12:24

It maybing showing that food in this

country has changed so much that

0:12:240:12:28

people are, there are so many things

in food making us ill, that people

0:12:280:12:33

don't know what good food is

anymore, they haven't tasted it. You

0:12:330:12:37

can see why people are going in

there, saying that they have

0:12:370:12:41

intolerances, as we are being fed a

load of old rubbish!

Now, your

0:12:410:12:48

paper, the Express, just for a

change has talked about the weather.

0:12:480:12:52

We talk about Brexit as well!

Look

at this headline, freezing chaos!

0:12:520:13:01

Well a lot of our readers are 60

plus. They don't live down here in

0:13:010:13:07

trendy media London land, living in

nice heated homes, many can't afford

0:13:070:13:11

to heat their homes over winter.

They need to know what it will be

0:13:110:13:15

like. Lurks travel, there will be

chaos over the next few days, it

0:13:150:13:20

will be very, very cold.

I think you

are right. We can mock the idea of

0:13:200:13:25

chaos, snow, all of the rest of it,

it's going to be minus 12 in parts.

0:13:250:13:32

In some parts it will be snowing and

it does affect a lot of people. Old

0:13:320:13:37

people can't leave their homes as a

result of it. So I hear you.

And you

0:13:370:13:42

get nice pictures.

Everyone likes to see a nice bit of

0:13:420:13:48

snow.

And as we are coming up to

0:13:480:13:52

Christmas, it's a nice festive

paper!

Michael and Laney, thank you

0:13:520:13:56
