Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow.
With me are the parliamentary
journalist, Tony Grew and journalist
and broadcaster, Caroline Frost.

It also has news that the average
house price has dropped.
The FT leads with Brexit -
it says Britain's chemical
and pharmaceutical industries have
asked the Government if they can
remain within EU rules.
The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson
is also pictured in Iran as he tries
to secure the release
of Britons jailed there.
The Times focuses on Brexit
and Ireland's unhappiness
over comments by David Davis that
a hard border on the Island
is a statement of intent' rather
than a cast iron guarantee.
The Daily Telegraph leads with news
that 10-year-olds are being asked
if they feel comfortable
with their gender in
an official NHS health study.
And the Express warns of more cold
weather to come - it says
we are to experience arctic
conditions in the run
up to Christmas Day.
Let's start with the Metro and the
front page about the biggest fall in
house prices for five years.
According to reports, the average
asking prices tumbled in a month
8000 average and 23,000 in London.
For people looking to get into
housing, this may appear to be good
news but it is still a sellers
market as it has been for decades.
Actually prices will continue to
rise next year but may rise less
slowly. All in all, it's marginally

on the housing ladder. . It's

It's the trend people
look out for and it is mixed.

deliberately vague term. As Tony

this space. Another demonstration of
deep Brexit uncertainty.

Guardian. Resch doubts over the

one, money, the Irish border and the
rights of EU citizens in the UK but
it appears from this morning's
interviews, David Davis is putting
out a different narrative, saying
it's not a deal, it's an aspiration.
It that it's technically correct but
the age -- the arrangements, the
assurances they have given over the
Irish border would appear to
preclude the idea of no deal being
on the table and also David Davis's
own idea of a hard Brexit appear to
be off the table. He doesn't want to
tell that to the right wing of his
own party and MPs to support Brexit
because he could possibly still be a
leadership contender. This has upset
people in Dublin. They thought the
deal was done and the DUP appeared
to scupper that deal. They then it
appeared to have done a late-night
deal that Ireland thought was not
progress to be made. It's important
to out -- it's important to point
out that the two countries are co-
guarantors for the Good Friday
Agreement and it's hard to see how
this could work. It's like watching
a silent disco. David Davis is

everyone is dancing to a different

This is all about political

Much more to come later in the week
on that. Let's stick with the
Guardian. The other story is the
death of Max Clifford, the disgraced

He is a man who defined

When you think of the headline
"Freddie Starr ate my hamster", that
was Max Clifford's doing. He

headlines, the Parliamentary

pies. It becomes a very dubious

Let's go to the front

into what they might do should they
