mornings papers in a moment with georgina wright and john stevens. first, the headlines: the prime minister has insisted he didn't mislead the queen over his reasons for suspending parliament. reporter: did you like to the queen when you advised her to prorogue, to suspend parliament? absolutely not. hospitals in syria for victims of the conflict are being deliberately targeted by government forces in rebel—held areas. the number of people investigated for rape who go on to be convicted has fallen to its lowest level since records were first compiled more than a decade ago. a 22 year—old man has been charged with the murder of 11—month—old zakari bennett—eko, who died after he was recovered from the river irwell in greater manchester yesterday. mps have called on gaming companies to protect young people from becoming addicted to their products.
11:34 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. we will take you through what the front pages are. with me arejohn stevens, the daily mail's deputy political editor, and georgina wright from the institute for government. thank you very much for being with us. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the dup is open to shifting its red lines on brexit, helping borisjohnson get a deal with the eu, reports the times. the newspaper understands that the party would accept northern ireland abiding by some eu rules after brexit as part of a new deal to replace to irish backstop. the guardian leads with the speakerjohn bercow, who has said he will stop the prime ministerfrom breaking the law to push through a brexit the house of commons doesn't agree with.
11:35 pm
jeremy corbyn is discussing scrapping discounts for independent schools, according to the independent, in what they call a tax raid on private education. actually, according to the daily telegraph. and borisjohnson has warned that labour will clobber voters with taxes, reports the express. the eu is preparing to speak of its grave concern that the home office's hostile environment is getting worse for its citizens, says the independent. "our world is choking to death," says the mirror, as crime gangs set fire to the amazon putting our environment at risk. and the proportion of women who are married is at an all—time low, says the daily mail on its front page. so, there we are. quite a mixed bag. georgina, let's start with the times, quite an interesting
11:36 pm
front—page headline, "the dup opens the door to new brexit deal for johnson". are we beginning to see possibly some sort of deal emerging 01’ possibly some sort of deal emerging or the possibilities of a deal? there's been a kind of assumption not much progress is being made on that but it looks like, if this is true, and if the dup would possibly support it, this is something he might be able to get through the commons. this is the key question with brexit, can we get a deal that's a cce pta ble brexit, can we get a deal that's acceptable to the eu and also the majority of mps in parliament? now, we're hearing that talks are happening in brussels, but we are still a long way off from the deal. of course, the space for compromise is quite small and that landing zone is quite small and that landing zone is incredibly small as well. we know that some of the possibilities... well, they're not endless. one of the things the eu has said is if you're serious about renegotiation, we need to table proposals that will
11:37 pm
work and one of those is to focus on northern ireland and come back to a form of northern ireland only backstop. the backstop has always been critical, but there are some in the tory party, some brexiteers, who don't like theresa may's deal and not just the don't like theresa may's deal and notjust the backstop, that wasn't the only thing they didn't like and maybe wouldn't vote for it whatever was decided about the backstop. but one of the things in favour of boris johnson getting a deal is of those people who didn't vote for his deal la st people who didn't vote for his deal last time are now in his cabinet, so this time it looks more likely they will vote for a deal, doesn't look like many would want to quit over this. for borisjohnson, he is facing difficult choices. if he seeks an extension from brussels, that will be highly controversial and if he breaks the law, obviously that would be very contentious so one way around this would be to get a deal and lots of people in the country do want to get on with it. if he strikes a deal, it could be quite popular. he has the ten dup
11:38 pm
mps who voted for the deal theresa may brought each time. they are looking at the possibilities where they could get onside. it does caution that a deal is still a long way off but it appears one of the reasons the dup could be looking to get a deal is if we don't get one there would be no deal, and there is polling in here suggesting if there was a no—deal brexit northern irish vote rs was a no—deal brexit northern irish voters would back reunification. and that's something the dup would be absolutely against. to add to that, northern ireland doesn't have a government at the moment so if the uk left the eu without a deal, that would the huge problems and consequences for northern ireland and that is something the dup are thinking about as well. that is according to the times, but looking at the telegraph, they have cabinet allies urging the prime minister to look for a brexit extension, quoting
11:39 pm
one particular exit in a cabinet minister as saying, ok, one particular exit in a cabinet ministeras saying, ok, we're one particular exit in a cabinet minister as saying, ok, we're going to have to go for a delay. a brexiteer minister has spoken anonymously to the daily telegraph and the daily mail tomorrow. that's your paper, you can tell us who it is! i won't be doing that if i want to keep my job! is! i won't be doing that if i want to keep myjob! this is reflecting these difficult choices and they are saying if borisjohnson has the choice of seeking an extension or breaking the law, the better thing to do would be to seek an extension, but that's obviously got its risks. it would be hugely unpopular with lots of brexiteer voters, saying momentum left in march, so if we seeka momentum left in march, so if we seek a third extension... could also say to the voters my hands were tied, i had to obey the law, i'm the prime minister. you can't get a prime minister. you can't get a prime minister. you can't get a prime minister arrested for not obeying the law. that's one thing, but you have to remember how the eu responds to this because delaying and asking for another extension
11:40 pm
delays the possibility of a no—deal, doesn't take it off the table, and they might want to have their own conditions about how the time is used. there was tasci saying use this time wisely and here we are with no—deal inside and the possibility very much there. the eu and how they respond will be interesting. as an example of the extraordinary times we live in, one of our political correspondence ended up today asking borisjohnson as prime minister whether he lied to the queen. quite a question to ask a prime minister. it is, and this is the court case we will hear in the supreme court next tuesday, whether borisjohnson was legal supreme court next tuesday, whether boris johnson was legal when he prorogued parliament, suspended it and stopped them from setting. that will be quite a crunch point next week and if the court rules it was illegal, mps will come back from their break. this is obviously in
11:41 pm
response to yesterday's court ruling, came out of scotland, that said the prime minister's advice to the queen on prorogation was unlawful and void. we'll have to see what happens on tuesday. what do you think will happen? there seems to be a difference between some of these judges, some saying this is a political matter and others saying it is something, the scottish judges say it is something we can rule on. and it took time for them to agree on what they wanted as well. it is really difficult to say. we will a lwa ys really difficult to say. we will always to see what happens on tuesday. i suppose the wider point here is there are some out there who are saying this is parliament and the judiciary are saying this is parliament and thejudiciary against are saying this is parliament and the judiciary against the people. that is how it could be characterised, and that's quite dangerous in a democracy, isn't it? and people from numberio... from the outside, it looks quite chaotic at the moment. borisjohnson the outside, it looks quite chaotic at the moment. boris johnson was hoping to push through a no—deal brexit, hoping to call an election to do that and on the face of it it
11:42 pm
looks like it's going wrong but there's some people in number 10 thinking this is playing in their hands. saying boris johnson thinking this is playing in their hands. saying borisjohnson is out there standing up for brexit and it's the other mp5 and the courts trying to stop him. that's his narrative. and if we do get to a general election campaign, it will boost that case. and he has to take on nigel farage and the brexit party, so in a way, if he gives voters at the election, whenever it is, no reason to vote for nigel farage over him, that's part of his strategy perhaps. and that's at the back of his mind as well. shows we are not yet in a a constitutional crisis because the wheels of the constitution are still running, and this is happening and we will have to wait and see what happens on tuesday and how ultimately the government response to that. the wheels on the bus keep going round! the guardian, they havejohn bercow backin the guardian, they havejohn bercow back in the news, he can't seem to stay out of it, can he? this is a direct warning to number
11:43 pm
10. some interesting remarks from john bercow. obviously john bercow announced this week he would be standing down at the end of next month, but i don't think anybody expected him to go quietly. obviously in the last few years he has repeatedly criticised by brexiteers for not being an impartial speaker. he's not afraid to stay in the fray. he'll be doing all he can to prevent a no—deal brexit until the very last moment, it seems. has he been a good speaker, do you think, john bercow? i'm not one to judge on these things... go on! it was interesting, today he gave a speech. he will step down. he feels he has more freedom to speak out stop as we stared, he has spoken out in the last couple of weeks in particular. —— as we said. clearly m ps weeks in particular. —— as we said. clearly mps have said they would
11:44 pm
seek an extension if a deal failed to come back from brussels by the 19th of october, or they haven't approved a no—deal. he will say any attempt to stop that won't go down well. some of the things he has done to parliament is modernised, introducing a creation so it can be more modern, very popular with mp5, but there's the volleying allegations and the questions about his bias —— creche. allegations and the questions about his bias -- creche. onto the telegraph. whenever the election comes, it will be about more than brexit and education is one of the keyissuesit brexit and education is one of the key issues it will be about and the telegraph has a story aboutjeremy corbyn and labour's plans on taxing private education. a general election is on the horizon and parties are thinking about that, and they know voters think about brexit, but that's not the only thing they think about and education is a key issue for many. certainly i would expect other policy indications to
11:45 pm
come up expect other policy indications to come up over expect other policy indications to come up over the coming months. john, what do you think of that? is it good or bad for labour, the headline about a corbin tax raid on private schools? it's obviously a divisive policy. one of the questions here is they would start charging vat on school fees and they say the average school fees are £15,000, adding £3000. that is a big sum. labourthink it £15,000, adding £3000. that is a big sum. labour think it will raise £1.5 billion but the private schools are saying you might be raising this money but more kids will go to the state sector, which costs taxpayers. the mirror, the amazon, a big splash front page. the crime gangs destroying the earth's lungs and putting us all at risk stop in quite a dramatic front page. absolutely, and this is a massive issue for many across the world. the amazon is responsible for 6% of the world's
11:46 pm
oxygen and we've seen fires raging through it. it was one of their key concerns at the g7, they committed £18 million to it but that's a very small sum of money if you think about it. the brazilian president has said he has sent in 43,000 troops to try to contain it. of course, fires continue to rage and it's a serious concern stop in very concerning but christopher buckton, the us editor of the mirror, retaining fleet street sartorial standards amongst the fire with his suit and tie on. extraordinary, he must be very hot! a return to the old campaigning front pages of the daily mirror, that's how it made its name as a crusading paper. fascinating details. lots may have heard the headlines about the amazon but this explains the fight. firefighters and what they are doing to stop the fires and how they are struggling with not great equipment and there is criticism for the
11:47 pm
brazilian government, saying they aren't properly resourced to do anything effective. fewer women than ever reject the tradition of marriage. fewer women than ever reject the tradition of marriagelj fewer women than ever reject the tradition of marriage. i was reading this but it also says almost 50% of women are married. is this the concept of marriage that is just not what it used to be? is it that people are living with their partners without being married? when i talk to some of my friends they just say, well, weddings are really expect to —— expensive. it is hard to untangle the reasons behind it. there also calls for tax breaks encourage people to get married. is that unfair on people who don't get married? we have seen the tory party
11:48 pm
back those things before. it was popular with some and unpopular with others. getting married is expensive. people who do get married are now doing it in later life. they are now doing it in later life. they are prioritising their spending on other things. there is one group where marriage, they are bucking the trend with marriage rising, it is the over 705. we trend with marriage ri5ing, it is the over 705. we are seeing more people marrying for the first or second time, in their later years. the average cost of the wedding was £30,000. that is the average. you are well on your way to a deposit to your house of something does make for a house or something. your house of something does make for a house or somethinglj your house of something does make for a house or something. i was going to say there are other things you could put that money to and i think that is what people are thinking about. —— for a house or something. meghan and harry. meghan is on the front of much all of the papers. for a change, a bit of good
11:49 pm
great pictures of the duchess of sussex. it is a great scheme she is backing. women who are long—term unemployed, it gives them clothes they can wear for interviews. they can find it easier to get a job. the duchess of sussex has this fashion line and for every item bought in that shop, they donate one for it charity for women to wear for interviews. there has been a lot of negative headlines for both prince harry and meghan markle over the past little while. has it been deserved? there has been an element of hypocrisy. they had taxpayers money spent on their house but then they wanted privacy. they said they wanted people to save the environment but then also flying on
11:50 pm
a private jet. it was questions that wings don't really marry up. but this is something good. —— that things. and it is something that the duchess cares about. fashion. she wa nts duchess cares about. fashion. she wants people to feel comfortable in their clothes and no what to say and went —— went to say. she wants women to be able to play that part. lots of women, particularly homeless women, have been out of work for a very long time so this is giving them the tools. and then she guest edited september's bogus so tying in a lot of things. do you think she gets a tough time from the press? she knew that that was going to come. when they announced their engagement, she said she was really looking forward to this job and looking forward to this job and looking forward to sticking ——

11:56 pm
weather. first the remnants of what was hurricane dorian passing to the north of the british isles. there was rain and brisk winds with that. on thursday, it was all about extra because don gabrielle. not much of it left but bands of cloud and patchy rain and as at that rain continues to sink southwards in association with this frontal system, we see some cooler, fresh air developing behind it. high—pressure building as well. —— tropical storm merbok gabrielle. the re m na nts of tropical storm merbok gabrielle. the remnants of cloud clearing in the channel islands. a lot of sunshine and the vast majority will be dry. they will be showers particularly across the north and west of scotland. it will also be quite windy. elsewhere, the winds will be

11:58 pm
it looks like the frontal system may start to move a little bit further south. in certain how far it will get. the rain tending to fizzle stop to the south of the fronts, a warm day, but to the north, something much cooler and fresher.
