11:31 pm
to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the parliamentary journalist, tony grew and journalist and broadcaster, caroline frost. tomorrow's front pages starting with the metro leads with the heavy snow that's caused travel chaos in many areas of the uk today. 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 borisjohnson 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
11:32 pm
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. tony? 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
11:33 pm
good news for people looking to get on the housing ladder. . it's certainly not, as i say, break out the bunting. it's the trend people look out for and it is mixed. different price pressures. that is a deliberately vague term. as tony says, it's good news for aspiring first—time buyers coupled with philip hammond's gift of stamp duty exemption. i'm not sure how far £300,000 goes in the capital. extraordinary. it's all about trends in this comes against the context of ever inflating prices over the last
11:34 pm
crash which was the late 90s. watch this space. another demonstration of deep brexit uncertainty. which brings us to the front page of the guardian. resch doubts over the brexit deal. -- fresh doubts. phase 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
11:35 pm
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 listening to his own headphones, eve ryo ne listening to his own headphones, everyone is dancing to a different tune. you say that that the guardian says it has gotten hold of a letter oi’ says it has gotten hold of a letter or seen a letter the prime minister has written to all tory mps about
11:36 pm
friday's agreement. promising nothing is agreed until everything is agreed. evenjust nothing is agreed until everything is agreed. even just the top of the guardian headlines, david davis in his clash with ireland. i've never seen such an elegant understatement. northern ireland peace agreement, everything that was agreed against everything that was agreed against everything that's now been put on table to appease the eu and create this strong position over brexit. theresa may declares a new sense of optimism. i don't know what tea leaves she has been reading. i think theresa may urged from last week's debacle with dignity. she was placed in an impossible position because of these opposing demands. this proves how weak shears. she doesn't just
11:37 pm
right, the deal that has been reached must be approved by european leaders. i question whether this sunday was a good time to be stomping around television studios. this is all about political manoeuvring, not national interest. 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 celebrity publicist. why are we so interested 7 celebrity publicist. why are we so interested? he is a man who defined in the era of tabloid journalism. when you think of the headline "freddie starr ate my hamster", that was max clifford's doing. he mastered the art of the kiss and
11:38 pm
tell. when you think of those great headlines, the parliamentary standards. so many hands in so many pies. it becomes a very dubious legacy. the support came after. the publicist behind all these lewd stories became himself the centre of a very deluded and eventually criminal story. his legacy, we have to question whether that has been helpful. the sort of gotch culture that they surround themselves with. and the fact they dealt with him, very quick turnaround and attacked him. he says that she has fundamentally changed our political media approach and reporting but i'm not sure it was for the better. the front page of the telegraph, the
11:39 pm
optimistic sound of these transactions at tills. what is it mean? these have done huge amounts of laboratory testing and they realised it all it's a bit monotonous, perhaps not inspiring and aspirational in shops survey have come up with this thing called sensory branding which is twofold. one, to create a new sound which is meant to be optimistic, energetic, all of those things which will accompany a visa transaction and also they've come up with a very personalised app on your phone. i don't know this will be the latest thing, you have to be seen having heard having but they are convinced this is going to add an extra element to very mundane, normal affairs. one is that make —— is it
11:40 pm
meant to make you better about spending your money? months of neurological research and the company claims users are left feeling happy and excited. they are putting a serious amount of money into this. this is from the marketing manager. he says we are all becoming very responsive to the use of sound. thanks to that, good to know. sensory branding is on its way to you. let's go to the front page of the financial times. an interesting story about the labour policy. labour have been looking into what they might do should they become the next government. they have a plan to set up birmingham as an alternative centre for the finances and regulation. as part of that, they think about moving some of the functions of the bank of
11:41 pm
england. they want to base themselves in birmingham. i'm fully in support of this. i think far too many of these institutions, particularly with the modern technology we have these days. there is no reason to people not to be able to work together so the co nsta nt able to work together so the constant argument that you have to be in london. whenever and had this idea that we would move the civil service to york or manchester, the senior ones did not leave london and 55,000 other staff went up the road but that has proven that it is possible for you to have a small base in london. and the bulk of your operation ever else. it would be symbolically important but also economically important. we have seen this when there have been other big
11:42 pm
institutional shifts. it's so much ofa institutional shifts. it's so much of a chance in such a precedence. we assume these big levers of government and finance have to stay rooted in the city and once you take that purport and say what does work? mr mcdonald has come up with some very convincing statistics. let's go to the front page of the times and be british and talk about the weather. here is a novel way of getting to work tomorrow morning, on your skis. we will be talking about london again. it's a perennial obsession for this country. something that anyone can talk about. ajudge something that anyone can talk about. a judge can talk to a dust and about the weather. it's not about whether, it's about communication. there is a great
11:43 pm
school of thought that says because this country has been so creative is because of the unpredictable weather. that means the likes of the beatles will have to go inside. that is thought about why this country punched so far above its weight in centuries go by. we will talk about the weather forever. excellent. very good to talk to you. that is it that the papers tonight. coming up next, the papers tonight. coming up next, the film review. welcome to the film review on bbc news. to take us through this week's cinema releases is mark kermode. what have you been watching, mark?
11:44 pm
we have stronger, which is a film about the boston bombing survivor jeff bowman. human flow, a very affecting documentary by ai weiwei. and the dinner. steve coogan and richard gere together at last! we can discuss that. stronger, i mean, people will remember so vividly the boston marathon bombing and this is very much about the aftermath. so jake gyllenhaal as jeff bowman, who was a young bostonian who was there at the finishing line and was involved in the blast and lost both his legs. and then having survived the bombing, then had to rebuild his life both physically and indeed, mentally. and deal with the fact he'd suddenly become right at the centre of the spotlight, which saw him in many ways as the embodiment of the boston strong mantra.
