Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be

:00:13.:00:15.

With me are Rosamund Urwin, columnist at the London Evening

:00:16.:00:23.

Standard, and Martin Lipton, deputy head of sport at The Sun.

:00:24.:00:32.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:33.:00:33.

The i leads on the Government's decision to shut down the unit it

:00:34.:00:36.

set up to investigate allegations that British troops abused local

:00:37.:00:39.

people while serving in Iraq, saying it's cost ?60 million.

:00:40.:00:45.

The Daily Mail, which campaigned on that story, says the witchhunt

:00:46.:00:51.

against British veterans cost ?60 million. The Mirror reports that a

:00:52.:00:57.

fundraiser who collected thousands of pounds for The Sun of the rugby

:00:58.:01:01.

is in court accused of keeping the cash. Overstretched NHS hospitals

:01:02.:01:09.

are paying doctors ?4000 a day, according to The Times. The

:01:10.:01:15.

Telegraph says the Apple is demanding a campaign against fake

:01:16.:01:18.

news, which it says is killing people's minds. The Guardian claims

:01:19.:01:23.

the government has abandoned the idea is of Donald Trump addressing

:01:24.:01:27.

both parliaments when it comes to Britain for a state visit later this

:01:28.:01:32.

year. The Daily Express says that the EU wants to hit the UK with a

:01:33.:01:36.

bill of ?49 billion as part of Brexit. There is a lot to keep us

:01:37.:01:42.

busy. And only 16 minutes to do is turn. We will start with The Daily

:01:43.:01:49.

Mail. At last an end to the witchhunt. This is a long-running

:01:50.:01:55.

campaign to say that these trips have had these allegations held over

:01:56.:01:59.

them for a decade and nothing has come of it. They had put it on their

:02:00.:02:10.

front page because they consider it their victory, although other papers

:02:11.:02:15.

have been campaigning as well. They mention a lawyer who has been struck

:02:16.:02:21.

off over his tank chasing tactics here. This has been something that

:02:22.:02:29.

has put a lot of pressure on veterans who avoided been through an

:02:30.:02:35.

awful lot. The government is the same label nb claims brought against

:02:36.:02:42.

veterans from the Afghan conflict. This is a very popular move across

:02:43.:02:48.

the country. Yes, there may have been things that were wrong but

:02:49.:02:54.

where other word criminal acts they deserve to be investigated properly

:02:55.:02:57.

and we have had cases where service men have been jailed for what they

:02:58.:03:04.

did, which was wrong. A lot of these issues clearly were not and there

:03:05.:03:09.

has been significant investigation that has found no basis to the

:03:10.:03:14.

allegations made. Now they are talking about the closure of this

:03:15.:03:21.

ongoing investigation. 3600 claims were looked at by the Iraq historic

:03:22.:03:29.

delegation team and that will be down to 20. The most serious cases

:03:30.:03:35.

need to be investigated, but this constant number... It has turned

:03:36.:03:39.

into a cash cow and that is what is worrying. It has gone on for so long

:03:40.:03:44.

because of the situation with the lawyer that had to be dealt with. We

:03:45.:03:51.

have been talking to the former head of the British Army and he says that

:03:52.:03:59.

we should go back to the old system and someone who understands the

:04:00.:04:02.

military should be the first people to investigate. It would make sense.

:04:03.:04:10.

You would want the police to look at things that go wrong in the police

:04:11.:04:14.

and the army to look at things that have gone wrong within the army. You

:04:15.:04:20.

would hope that they have significant sense of independence

:04:21.:04:23.

within the organisation to judge themselves. If you really believe

:04:24.:04:31.

that the army had batted them and they deserve the trust and respect

:04:32.:04:35.

they get them, they have to be able to make those decisions. You have to

:04:36.:04:41.

wonder if there might be some kind of compensation for people who have

:04:42.:04:44.

been put through this for all these years. It has been hanging over them

:04:45.:04:52.

for so long. Some health stories in The Times to end the week. We have

:04:53.:04:57.

belittling at the NHS in great detail on BBC News. Hospitals pay

:04:58.:05:04.

law comes ?4000 for a day off work. A local is a stand on Doctor who

:05:05.:05:08.

does not have a substantive post in a hospital. They come to fill the

:05:09.:05:13.

gaps. They can almost name their price. Hundreds of locum doctors are

:05:14.:05:24.

paid ?100,000 a year. We know the contracts which the doctors have

:05:25.:05:31.

been as to sign or of great concern. We have a significant issue within

:05:32.:05:36.

the NHS which is causing problems. I sign an interview with Jeremy Hunt

:05:37.:05:41.

where he talked in great terms about the situation and people will wonder

:05:42.:05:47.

how it can come to this and why we cannot have a more sensible system.

:05:48.:05:52.

We could see ?300 million a year being spent on temporary doctors.

:05:53.:06:00.

There are massive gaps and wrote us, as any doctor will tell you, and

:06:01.:06:05.

they have to pluck them. The alternative is that they do not plug

:06:06.:06:12.

them with anybody. I don't think we should pay 4000 staff but we should

:06:13.:06:15.

have sufficient staff that we don't have these gaps in the first place.

:06:16.:06:21.

It takes years to train doctors will stop six or seven years. I have two

:06:22.:06:28.

doctors who have gone to Australia and New Zealand and that does not

:06:29.:06:35.

help. It explains how terrible the circumstances are. The pressure

:06:36.:06:39.

thereunder. And sure they did not want to leave Britain necessarily.

:06:40.:06:45.

Some will always leave but you do not want to train people and invest

:06:46.:06:49.

in them and then they think their best option is not to stay in the

:06:50.:06:56.

country. We need a health service we can all believe in and that is the

:06:57.:07:00.

duty of government. At the moment there seems to be a lack of faith in

:07:01.:07:06.

the delivery of that service. GPs add to strain on a knee by failing

:07:07.:07:11.

to open all day. What does that mean? Most surgeries seemed to be

:07:12.:07:15.

open from morning to evening. Less than eight hours here. Again, GPs

:07:16.:07:24.

are incredibly stressed, all the ones I know, and people are leaving

:07:25.:07:29.

general practice, so something does not add up here. Clearly we need GPs

:07:30.:07:35.

to be open and we need them to be seeing elderly patients and they

:07:36.:07:42.

need to go to their GP quickly. Otherwise they will end up in AME.

:07:43.:07:52.

-- in A My sister-in-law is a GP and she tells is often of this sheer

:07:53.:07:58.

demand on her time will stop it seems like there is never-ending

:07:59.:08:05.

expectations. Lots of GPs go out to the community, not in every place,

:08:06.:08:11.

but some of them go, and some of them are doing business but the

:08:12.:08:14.

surgery would not qualify as being open. Jeremy Hunt says that he

:08:15.:08:20.

recognises things are unacceptable... He has been in

:08:21.:08:30.

charge. What about Andrew Lansley. He said it didn't help hospitals

:08:31.:08:33.

cope but there were other parts of the system... Is it another cunning

:08:34.:08:38.

plan the government have come up with? Be no funding to the NHS, as

:08:39.:08:43.

much as they claim it is increasing, it is not. Maybe it is not

:08:44.:08:49.

increasing fast enough to keep up with demand. Flexibility of demand.

:08:50.:09:02.

Social care is another issue. Fake news is killing mines, the head of

:09:03.:09:09.

Apple, Tim Cook, demanding a drive to educate against the scourge of

:09:10.:09:15.

misinformation. The problem we have is that the whole concept of fake

:09:16.:09:21.

news has now been debased by the fact that anyone who comes up with

:09:22.:09:24.

information which is contrary to your opinion can be demeaned and

:09:25.:09:32.

denied and branded as fake news. When you have a representative of

:09:33.:09:37.

the most important government of the world talking about alternative fax

:09:38.:09:43.

your going down a rocky path. Links CNN fake news to undermine them. --

:09:44.:09:53.

calling CNN. I think what he is suggesting here is necessary. We

:09:54.:09:58.

need to educate the people. They had a left of the top fake stories of

:09:59.:10:01.

last year and one of them was that the Pope had supported Donald Trump,

:10:02.:10:10.

which was complete nonsense. This is the social media echo chamber,

:10:11.:10:17.

people that are repeating things that are nonsense because it is what

:10:18.:10:22.

they want to believe. Is this not just down to critical thinking,

:10:23.:10:28.

which we need to learn in school? I think there is something about being

:10:29.:10:31.

presented with a new story that makes people think it is credible.

:10:32.:10:38.

But you don't think... Am a journalist. But that is about being

:10:39.:10:43.

a critical thinker. We could teach that in schools. I think it is

:10:44.:10:53.

asking people to confront its. Sometimes people just want to

:10:54.:11:00.

believe what they see. When people are being funnelled into a

:11:01.:11:03.

one-dimensional view of the world, irrespective of that view is

:11:04.:11:06.

correct, you're going to have problems. People want to believe

:11:07.:11:12.

things that coincide with what they believe. His argument is that if you

:11:13.:11:21.

tell children not to believe everything, they will go home and

:11:22.:11:26.

said the same to their parents. I think that is an interesting way to

:11:27.:11:33.

think about it. It is like children telling their parents to recycle.

:11:34.:11:42.

The Express, the EU is warned that they will not believe us. Brussels

:11:43.:11:50.

once ?49 billion. That sounds expensive. When you leave a club,

:11:51.:12:00.

you have to pay leaving charge. What is it for? One of the things it is

:12:01.:12:10.

covering is making the MEPs redundant, so that includes Nigel

:12:11.:12:15.

Farage who want to be in Europe and is still receiving a salary. Perhaps

:12:16.:12:22.

he won't take the redundancy... He claims his expenses and takes a

:12:23.:12:27.

salary. Why would we pay? We have to. MPs all used to pay something if

:12:28.:12:40.

they lost an election, and I think that has been dramatically cut. I

:12:41.:12:46.

think we can cut this. If you are due, irrespective of Brexit, you

:12:47.:12:52.

will want the UK to pay a heavy price for leaving to stop anyone

:12:53.:12:59.

else going down the same pattern. Therefore, they are going to extort

:13:00.:13:03.

as high a price as they can. We need to find a way to counteract that. Do

:13:04.:13:10.

you charge extra for speaking French on this programme? Not with my

:13:11.:13:19.

accent. On page ten of The Mail, no estate agents make buyers pay ?1000

:13:20.:13:26.

reservation fee just to take homes of the market. If you find a home

:13:27.:13:33.

want to buy and you don't want competition you pay ?1000 and no one

:13:34.:13:39.

else can find it. Critics have understandably labelled this another

:13:40.:13:43.

property rip-off. Because people are so desperate to find a house want

:13:44.:13:48.

the property to come off the market, they are being made to pay this fee.

:13:49.:13:53.

This is not in Scotland, I assume. It is banned there. I believe they

:13:54.:14:04.

have a system without gazumping. It is a simpler system. Lots of people

:14:05.:14:08.

want England and Wales to copy Scotland in that regard. There are

:14:09.:14:14.

estate agents who are charging a couple of hundred pounds to sell

:14:15.:14:21.

your home. My theory is that the market is slow at the moment though

:14:22.:14:24.

there are not many properties coming on the market. Prices are not

:14:25.:14:30.

falling but there is an expectation that they will stagnate. You get

:14:31.:14:37.

desperate sellers doing it, but that means there are not many properties

:14:38.:14:40.

which means fewer transactions and estate agents are finding other ways

:14:41.:14:45.

to make money. Also there was the competition but the online estate

:14:46.:14:49.

agents who are charging much less than the established estate agents.

:14:50.:14:56.

They have no overheads. Very few anyway. On page three of The Times,

:14:57.:15:11.

here comes red-hot TV. This is the end of those Scandinavian series

:15:12.:15:15.

where we bought the jumper. It will not be dark, it will be warm and

:15:16.:15:22.

bright and still murder. These are television as well are famous in

:15:23.:15:30.

Brazil. They also pick out Narcosis, a programme about the Colombian drug

:15:31.:15:36.

trades which is just completed its second series. There is lots of

:15:37.:15:43.

drama. I think it is inevitable that we get a bit sick of the same

:15:44.:15:47.

stories. There is always a missing child, a cop who has problems, so

:15:48.:15:55.

there comes a time when you try to do the opposite. There are hardly

:15:56.:16:08.

uplifting. One top alert in Brazil is about a serial killer thing that

:16:09.:16:14.

with police. It is in a nicer location. One uses a honey making

:16:15.:16:22.

businesses a front for a male escort service. Another one is about a

:16:23.:16:27.

young couple that befriend their neighbours with disastrous

:16:28.:16:31.

consequences. Have got time talk about the back page... We do. We

:16:32.:16:40.

have one minute left. Which one are we looking at. The Times. This is

:16:41.:16:48.

going to hurt, Wales against England on BBC One. It is a proper game.

:16:49.:16:52.

England played badly and one last week. This could be the defining

:16:53.:16:59.

match of the Six Nations. If England when they will look very strong. The

:17:00.:17:04.

Welsh are determined to send them back with a fully behind their ears.

:17:05.:17:12.

-- a fleet of time. Wales are the underdogs and they like being the

:17:13.:17:18.

underdogs. England do not do well in Cardiff. It is going to be a great

:17:19.:17:23.

battle between two good teams. England are the favourites but it

:17:24.:17:26.

will be on the edge. It will be brutal. I would like to point out

:17:27.:17:37.

how our papers have neatly been stretched across the desk. You can

:17:38.:17:39.

see the front pages online. It's all there for you,

:17:40.:17:44.

seven days a week at And if you miss the programme any

:17:45.:17:46.

evening you can watch it

:17:47.:17:51.
