tv The Papers BBC News October 26, 2017 10:45pm-11:00pm BST
of weeks and in my newspaper, the sun, we have had a story of police office rs sun, we have had a story of police officers on dodge yellows, them promoting different awareness raising campaigns, where i thinka lot of people would be just graceful if they were back on the beat and arresting criminals who steal bikes, who steal people's mobile phones on the streets, deal with the moped gangs. the police do a really tough job. but they must be directed as well and directed to catching criminals. lynn, staying with you and the telegraph, let's talk borisjohnson. well, boris has been on another trip and yet again gone off message. so, imean, and yet again gone off message. so, i mean, this is not unexpected from him. we know that borisjohnson has always been pro—immigration in the sense that he is not against people coming but he wants control of the numbers that come here. when he was looking to be the mayor
that was a familiar refrain? the reason this is on the front page of the telegraph is that he has gone further than the prime minister. a departure from what theresa may has been saying. she did not agree to secure been saying. she did not agree to secure the rights of ex—pats when we depart the european union but she said she wants to but what theresa may is doing is waiting until the rights of british citizens living in the european countries are assured. so we have all said we want to do this. so he has come forward. this is an evening when the chair of the commons foreign affairs select committee, has been giving a talk, and criticised boris johnson committee, has been giving a talk, and criticised borisjohnson by saying we need a coal headed approach and that boris johnson carries a lot of noise when he goes abroad. this was made last week, made in an address on polish/uk relations it came to light when a clip of his
comments were put on twitter. there arei million polish comments were put on twitter. there are 1 million polish living comments were put on twitter. there arei million polish living in the country. when you go to pret amanger there is a chance that would be served by someone a chance that would be served by someone from the east. there is the issue that there could be a sudden ﬂight issue that there could be a sudden flight of european giving flight, an exodus from the uk. and you hinted on it a minute ago, if this is different to what theresa may is saying this is one of the three key issues that must be resolved before trade talks? yes but it is something that theresa may has tried to harsh out with the european counterparts, that they would not budge on. angela merkel being one in question. to be fair, she has been very clear. that she wants to do
this but needs a message from them as well. let's move on. the daily express. lynn take us there. this is the story about the uk's population. we are told it will hit 70 million by 2029 and the daily express taking a migrant line on the figures. these are big numbers. mid-2029, 70 figures. these are big numbers. mid—2029, 70 million. figures. these are big numbers. mid-2029, 70 million. it figures. these are big numbers. mid—2029, 70 million. it is a rise of, i don't know, i think we need to start building more houses is the general message. and maybe hospitals! they are saying there will be a rise of something like 54% down to migration by 2026 and then something like the number of over 85s in britain will double to} of over 85s in britain will double to 3 million by 2040. so something like in the range of 16 million people of pensionable age at that time. i know that people are working
longer, are able to look after themselves but these are worrying figures. never mind looking at people now who cannot get an appointment at a doctor's surgery, not getting places in primary schools, we are not seeing primary schools, we are not seeing primary schools, hospitals being built to do with this. well this goes back to the story, the british don't want to do the mcdonald'sjobs the british don't want to do the mcdonald's jobs that the migrants wa nt to mcdonald's jobs that the migrants want to do, so perhaps the surplus population could prove beneficial. but, supreme to live somewhere, people must educate their children somewhere, it is a strain on the public services. and the stress on the migrant line but old age is also a part of the story. let's move on to the ft. dan, let's start with you. there is an ammiage at the top
of the front page. a frightening image from kenya with reference to the rerunning of the election. yeah, this is an extraordinary story a month ago, thejudiciary in kenya called for a re—election, held as a sign of kenya's vibrant democracy. now there is mayhem, violence, the opposition candidate, odinga has pulled from the race. three people killed today and now reports that turnout is low undermining the credibility of the election and the he get mace whys all together. so what was to be an example of kenyan democracy is turning out the opposite. it would appear that mr kenyatta is to win on the basis of the current voting and the lack of turnout but that does not necessarily in these circumstances that does not necessarily in these ci rcu msta nces resolve that does not necessarily in these
circumstances resolve a great deal? no. the main opponent called the election illegitimate with the turn out low. and it calls into question if the next election is viable domestically and internationally. and it sums up the violence that picture? it is a powerful photograph. what i read earlier, the judges were supposed to be ruling on whether or not to delay the election. two out of seven turned up. one of the judges who did not turn up, her bodyguard was shot the night before. this is the pressure that the people are under there. a very difficult situation. now the garde front page, so many different figures, economic figures coming out on a day by day basis at the moment. some appear good news, some don't. here is one that doesn't look so good. retail sales falling
at the fastest rate since the recession? does this mean there are going to be sales?! we have raise rising inflation. a worry. which we have had the figures from last week. we have the sterling plunging. that is great if you are coming to britain on holiday. but not gait for us, obviously. now the figures out from the cb i survey, talking about out from the cb i survey, talking about ourspending from the cb i survey, talking about our spending power. the cb i are being vocal about brexit. this is a bleak picture. their figures are portraying tonight. i'm not sure. i think we should see a little more. they are saying that they are falling at the fastest rate since the recession in 2009. that is a considerable length of time. so they sound damning but i'm not sure we should worry yet. and the income squeeze mentioned, dan. it's a part of the story.
pa rt dan. it's a part of the story. part of the problem is that london is still one of the most expensive cities on the planet. with the dramatic fall in the pound and high inflation, and rents not decareering bya inflation, and rents not decareering by a dramatic degree, the prospects for people in the capital are not getting better. i mentioned this being a bad news economic story, it appears in a paper that does not support brexit, is itfairto paper that does not support brexit, is it fair to say that as we see the different stories, some good, some bad, they are featured more heavily in the paper that take as particular brexit view as a parallel. i'm not sure. these figures, for example, the cb i have been vocal about brexit in a negative way. i think it would be more, perhaps, more beneficial to look at the figures after christmas and then
perhaps take another snapshot. yes, as they say you cannot read too much into a set of figures! dan, not the same telegraph, this is the scottish version it has a lead story with reference to junk food and supermarkets. this story talks about the fact that price promotions on junk food reinvestigated and restaurant meal sizes capped under plans unveiled by the medical associations in scotland. this reminds me of the sugar tax. well, part of the plans are to send
health visitors. if you are a young mum, south or north of the border, you could be taking, no offence but you could be taking, no offence but you may not be pleased with the health visitors who checks up on your children and the eating and looking at your larder, the portion control and what you are feeding them, the meal time control and what you are feeding them, the mealtime behaviourand i don't think businesses will be pleased with the pressure on them to relabel with calorie amounts and portion sizes on the products. so, look, the snp are talking about asking the uk government as it is notp within their right to ban advertising near schools and playings, tourist attractions, with the best of intentions. i was going to say, there are stark figures. yes, there are problems in the country with obesity. and now to look at buzzfeed, a
parliamentary, an mp showing off his painted nails to raise awareness of slavery. yes, he displayed much to the shock of us his painted hand. there is an eave owned somerset police campaign, called let's nail it. it highlights women but also men, who are victims of modern slavery. on screen, we showed the coloured version, black and white detracted from the effect of the nails. they were red. i would not expect them to be blue, he is labour after all. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — 7 days a week at bbc dot co uk
