Hello. Welcome to our look ahead at what the papers will be bringing us
tomorrow. With me are financial analyst Louise Cooper and the editor
of the Daily Express. All the papers are in now. We're going to start the
Telegraph, leading with a story that half of all convicted sex offenders
in England and Wales are apparently being spared a jail term and are
being given community sentences instead. The Guardian says the
government's flagship benefit reform scheme is being jeopardised by a
rift. The Express has done a story of an increased risk of heart attack
in people who take a certain brand of sleeping tablets.
The Daily Mirror had a picture of a baby pulled from the rubble of a
building. Apparently from Damascus, it claims that it was hit by
government forces on the day that President Assad gave up his chemical
weapons. The Daily Mail says that Channel 4
is facing a police investigation over a documentary showing a thief
demonstrating how to shoplift. The Times says that harsh side effects
as lead to a change in official advice being changed for men with a
risk of prostate cancer. It also has a story on the helicopter crash in
North Norfolk. The Independent says increasingly heated immigration
debates has led to a huge increase in racist bullying in schools. The
sun has the headline, hell freezes over. A town in fruit -- Michigan.
It has seen temperatures go to -40 Celsius. We're going to start with
the only paper that seems to be reporting the helicopter crash
earlier this evening in Norfolk. Four killed in a military helicopter
crash. The details you have been giving out all night, as you know, a
Pave Hawk aircraft, helicopter, it looks like it was coming from a
nearby RAF base. Lakenheath. It came down next to Cley next the Sea.
Sadly, it looks like for people on board had been killed. This leads to
some serious questions to be asked. What I think is quite interesting is
it is the only newspaper to break the story on the front page and all
of the front pages of the newspapers are completely different. There was
clearly no big lead story of the day. From today. Has a broken too
late? I think it has broken too late. When these, most of the first
editions are done by 9:30pm. Details wise it was very sketchy and was
breaking. That is probably the main reason. Do you think you will be in
a different edition? There will be in other first editions elsewhere.
Maybe they'll make the decision not to change the front page. I think
they will be on some front pages. It is a late rating story. -- breaking.
I am a financial analyst, I am interested, the decision, how much
it costs to change the front page for a newspaper. How they can maybe
the? I was intrigued. We have edition times and it is budgeted
for. If the press is stopped, that will stop you -- cost you a lot of
money. That is budgeted in. We have different edition times at 11:30pm.
Then we go to one -- 1:30am. On different days there are different
first edition times as well. It depends on how you wanted the -- two
disc tribute in. That will feature in some of the later editions. What
was interesting, with all the bad weather, it said initial reports
said it had crashed into the sea and the RNLI dispatched lifeboats. To
say they were there that quit. Sometimes the RNLI gets forgotten.
Hats off to them. Indeed. Let's go on to the Independent. Interesting
story. Immigration is on the front pages. We had the poll today
suggesting the majority of Britons believe there should be a cut on
immigration. A big debate about it from all sides, right and left. The
suggestion from the Independent is that racist bullying is the result
of this heated debate with ChildLine suggesting that children are
reporting abuse because of what is going on. 1400 children contacted
counselling in 2013. This was up in previous months. You have to go what
they're saying. If people are talking about, children talk about
about about kids are kids and if someone is different, they get
picked on. It does not matter what colour you are. If you are slightly
different. Kids repeat what their parents say to them. It reflects
what maybe they are hearing in their own environment. As we know, there
has been a big political am starting to be a big political hostility to
immigration. It is a reflection that children repeat what their parents
say. The it is part of human nature. People become people who are
different. This is not saying that it is because these people are black
or Asian or whatever. It is immigration. Part of the debate that
is going on. They are saying that Muslims are being called terrorists
or bombers by their classmates. That is not a new comment this year. This
has been going on for a furious. After 7-7. I don't understand how
this is now that the debate is raging at the moment, this is for
last year. Immigration has been high up on the public radar for a few
years. Certainly while UKIP have been doing well. At the moment the
debate is remains and Bulgarians. This is not about that. We have had
five or six years of economic pain and when people are suffering
economic pain, as we have seen all across Europe, and even in the
United States, you seek to blame somebody else. That is what happens.
It has happened through history. When people are unhappy, their wages
are not going up, they are losing jobs and they are suffering in the
pocket, you seek to blame somebody else. What happens is that the
politicians get votes by blaming others. This, to me, is reflected in
the greater society with so economic growth and people are feeling
wealthier, they will stop blaming others. It would be interesting to
know, it is not explicit from the front page, where in the country
this is. In London, where my kids go, it is a mixed, conferences and
primary school. My son and daughter, a mixed school. I have never heard
of bullying that goes on. Name-calling. Not racist bullying.
It would be interesting to know if this is further around the country.
Outside my son's classroom it says in this class we speak 19 languages.
It is something to be celebrated and to be proud of. That the two as you
go in the classroom. It says in this class we speak 17 languages and
embrace the following fates. If you go to a London school or a London
state school, there will be a big mix of children. Maybe I wonder if
it is in other areas. You mentioned, Louise, kids hear things at and may
potentially repeat racist language in the playground and so forth. Is
there any plane to perhaps the lead at the door of us, the media? Ali
reporting this story fairly? Are we potentially feeding the prejudices
of the public out there who at the moment are feeling, we don't like
immigration. We don't know. Maybe people are picking up on the media.
The media are only reporting public opinion. The big talk about, the
influx of Bulgarians and Romanians, all of the flights, they are booked
until next Christmas, they will all come. It did not happen. As has been
said, all of the TV, newspapers were sea to anyone turned up. People did
turn up. Not many. This is something we will have too much for a few
years to get the true figures like we did with the Polish immigration.
Going back to what the story was about, that has been in the last
month or two, months this is not covering the period and this is
about, mainly, muscles reporting they are being called terrorists and
bombers. That is not Bulgarians or remains. We have got to be careful
we are not feeling this. It is something that we will be keeping an
eye on now. Onto the daily Telegraph. A depressing story. We
talked about this an hour ago. Half of the six attackers are spared
jail. The suggestion is this is to save money. This is figures obtained
by the shadow justice secretary and as you say, a depressing statistic.
Half of convicted sex offenders, violent criminals and burglars
basically avoided prison. They were not sent down. City 5000 criminals
in 2013 walked free despite being convicted for rape, sexual assault,
grievous bodily harm and robbery. Very depressing statistics and I
wonder if this is being reduced to political point scoring and
forgetting about the victims whose lives have been devastated. By these
crimes. This is information that was cleaned by the Labour Party. They
are pointing a finger at the Tories. The Tories hitting back, as they
would. Chris Grayling says they are overhauling guidelines. They always
say they will have guidelines. -- overhaul guidelines. He also says
they will not take lessons from a Labour Party that let criminals
leave years early. When the Labour Party. Don't throw things at us
because we will throw it back. Back to what we said, they are forgetting
the victims. Let's move on to another story on the front of the
Telegraph. Allow children to be bored, parents are told. There is no
problem to take away the Game Boy, take away whatever it is some
electronic thing. Let them contemplate the ruins of empire.
Meditate. What parents need is yet more advice on how to bring up
children! We have not had enough of that already! This is according to
Julie Robinson, the education and training director of the independent
association of prep schools. Are! She says you should allow children
to become bored because quiet reflective time is just as
important. Julie, do you have children? If you do, they are
nothing like mine. They are probably in prep school. The lack they are
probably privately educated in doing well. When my children get bored, as
my four-year-old son has done a lot during the terrible rain. Your Mac
are they just wind each other up and it all ends in tears. She says there
are too many focuses on after-school activities. This could lead to a
generation of anxiety ridden adult. I never did any of that and I am
anxiety ridden already. And she is against tiger mothers and again, she
is from a prep school and I find it hilarious. It's OK to say to your
kids, fail, succeed, whatever. You can handle it, parents, you are
doing a great job out there. And on toll Sun. Apparently Hell has frozen
over. It's Biblical - Weather that happens in the Bible! I loved this
headline you and didn't like it. I thought it was a greathead line. I
throw down the rifles and applaud the opposition, obviously it's
brilliant. The freak icy blast. But I do believe that Hell, Michigan do
regularly freeze over. He is poshing cold water on the story! No, no, I'm
just saying - it's great, a great picture of Hell freezing over,
because of the polar volunteer text, whatever one of them is! Well The
Sun has a helpful explainer - although we weren't quite sure about
it - of what is a polar volunteer text so if you are confused it is in
the Sun. And my favourite bit is apparently in Chicago's Lincoln Park
zoo polar bear Anna was moved indoors because it was too cold for
her and she had to go into a heated room. Too cold tour a polar bear!
Sometimes the polar vortex has been called a frijd twister. I won't tell
you what he said off air! We've all met one of them And we will leave it
there! It has been brilliant having you in and looking at the headlines.
Stay with us for the BBC news because at the top of the hour at

board. So stay with us for that. Now on BBC News it's time for Sportsday.
