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

:00:14.:00:18.

bringing us tomorrow. With me are Vincent Moss, the Political Editor

:00:19.:00:21.

of the Sunday Mirror, and the author and journalist Shyama Perera. First

:00:22.:00:29.

the front pages. The Sunday Telegraph is looking at calls from

:00:30.:00:33.

95 MPs for powers to veto every aspect of EU law.

:00:34.:00:37.

The Observer reports on Brussels fight against the Government's

:00:38.:00:39.

attempts to change EU immigration rules.

:00:40.:00:42.

The Sunday Times has followed that theme and led on a story about the

:00:43.:00:46.

Government planning to ban EU migrants from claiming welfare

:00:47.:00:48.

payments for up to two years after arriving in the UK.

:00:49.:00:53.

The Independent on Sunday revisits the Iraq war, with a story that the

:00:54.:00:57.

UK is to answer for alleged war crimes.

:00:58.:01:01.

The Mail on Sunday splashes on more claims about the former Co-op bank

:01:02.:01:06.

chairman Paul Flowers. So, let's begin! We are going to

:01:07.:01:15.

talk about Europe, because I don't -- it is in several other papers.

:01:16.:01:23.

Let's look at how the Telegraph is covering it. 95 Conservative MPs

:01:24.:01:29.

call for an EU law veto. They want every aspect of EU law to be open to

:01:30.:01:35.

a veto in Westminster. An extraordinary appeal. It doesn't

:01:36.:01:38.

stand a chance, does it? Not really. The Eurosceptic Sunday

:01:39.:01:46.

Telegraph has a story saying that 95 MPs have written to David Cameron,

:01:47.:01:51.

wanting to block future laws and revise existing laws. They once a

:01:52.:01:54.

white card to cherry pick the bits they like. It will never happen.

:01:55.:02:06.

They just want to get out of Europe. They are starting to put the

:02:07.:02:09.

pressure on as we are coming up to the election. I think that the

:02:10.:02:19.

elections coming up in Europe, I think these MPs are worried about

:02:20.:02:26.

the rise of the European -- the UK Independence party. They are piling

:02:27.:02:34.

pressure on Conservative HQ. The bill that is supposed to give us a

:02:35.:02:39.

referendum in 2017, even that is looking dicey. Now Bill is going to

:02:40.:02:49.

get through. What interests me about this, and you probably have the

:02:50.:02:53.

answer, is how does he and third -- the Prime Minister respond to this?

:02:54.:03:00.

What is the response? You can say yes. Does he just step back and let

:03:01.:03:05.

the UK Independence party swallow up all of these constituencies, or does

:03:06.:03:12.

he do something incredibly stupid? He is ready starting to be

:03:13.:03:17.

incredibly stupid by trying to buck your -- European Union law. He will

:03:18.:03:23.

continue to top tough. You will hear stronger and stronger rhetoric on

:03:24.:03:26.

things like immigration. It probably will change much in reality.

:03:27.:03:34.

European law takes years to change, not months. Iain Duncan Smith is

:03:35.:03:38.

talking about being tough on immigration and whether they can

:03:39.:03:42.

claim benefits. We will hear a lot of this up until the elections in

:03:43.:03:45.

May because it is the issue that concerns voters the months. We are

:03:46.:03:52.

going to have the most interesting alliance after the next election.

:03:53.:03:57.

This will split the vote on over the place. This will not do these MPs

:03:58.:04:07.

any favours at all. What is really interesting, and I think we should

:04:08.:04:12.

be running lots on this, or running a book on it, is what is the mix of

:04:13.:04:17.

the next government going to be? There will not be a majority

:04:18.:04:20.

government. While all of this is happening, I wish there were some of

:04:21.:04:25.

the he could step out of the box and say we will end up with the UK

:04:26.:04:30.

Independence party having 10% and the Conservatives having whatever. I

:04:31.:04:37.

think we have more of a rough ride ahead, and a new way of government

:04:38.:04:42.

for the foreseeable future. Like today in Germany, where they have to

:04:43.:04:45.

form coalitions every time. That would be a real change for us. Is

:04:46.:04:53.

that how you read this? Yes, although Labour are ahead,

:04:54.:04:59.

Conservatives are realising that they cannot win unless they come to

:05:00.:05:04.

some sort of deal with UKIP. That is the thing that obsesses nearly every

:05:05.:05:08.

conservative MP I speak to. Let's have a look at the story and Europe

:05:09.:05:14.

in the Observer. It is an essay, really. Defiant Russell slaps down

:05:15.:05:20.

Britain's threats to rewrite immigration rules. The President of

:05:21.:05:25.

Europe says that the idea of free movement of such a basic tenants of

:05:26.:05:29.

the European Union that there is no way we will let that slide. I think

:05:30.:05:38.

we forget that we are not part of that land mass. On the continental

:05:39.:05:44.

mainland, people are crossing borders everyday without having to

:05:45.:05:48.

think about it. Of course they want to keep that. We have got the island

:05:49.:05:54.

mentality of being scared of people crossing over. He makes the point

:05:55.:06:02.

that I have heard others make before in the European Union, he said I

:06:03.:06:09.

would like to see the UK making its case for reform from within the EU

:06:10.:06:14.

rather than having one hand on the escape hatch. I think George Osborne

:06:15.:06:21.

will make a speech along those lines this week. The reforms are needed,

:06:22.:06:25.

that we will stay within and tried to reform from within. The Observer

:06:26.:06:30.

is very pro-European, saying Brussels. Sign any British FM to

:06:31.:06:35.

rewrite the immigration rules and there is no chance of curbing free

:06:36.:06:40.

movement -- curbing free movement between EU states. I don't think

:06:41.:06:50.

much will change. High in case of the builders with this issue of

:06:51.:06:56.

Europe? It causes lots of problems with the Conservatives, and always

:06:57.:07:00.

has. Is it just the aspect of immigration are particularly

:07:01.:07:10.

concerned people is to mark -- particularly concerns people? I

:07:11.:07:21.

think voters think it is bonkers that their MPs are concerned about

:07:22.:07:26.

this boat when they are struggling to pay the bills. In the Observer,

:07:27.:07:33.

police were aware of Mark Duggan flash points. We saw people

:07:34.:07:37.

gathering today in Tottenham for a vigil over the death of Mark Duggan,

:07:38.:07:43.

who was shot lawfully in August 2011. We saw riots spread out across

:07:44.:07:51.

the country after that shooting. The suggestion here is that the lease

:07:52.:07:54.

new that the shooting of Mark Duggan would trigger wider disorder and

:07:55.:08:00.

despite the later came from Scotland Yard that the riot is in Tottenham

:08:01.:08:08.

could not have been predict did. This is a total nonstory. People

:08:09.:08:14.

knew that the shooting of Mark Duggan cooed cause widespread

:08:15.:08:20.

disorder, despite the fact that they claim those riots after Mark Duggan

:08:21.:08:27.

could have been predicted. They could not predict it was going to

:08:28.:08:30.

spread across England. What you see when you read on is that they put

:08:31.:08:36.

into play all sorts of mechanisms to ensure that if there was some I wake

:08:37.:08:40.

of this order in Tottenham they could deal with it. What they did

:08:41.:08:44.

not do was think ahead to other places. They plan for what they knew

:08:45.:08:51.

would happen. What they didn't do is guess what might happen. So, it

:08:52.:09:00.

confirms that, to me. They were aware that things might happen like

:09:01.:09:07.

the police station in Tottenham might need a bit more protection,

:09:08.:09:13.

they were not aware of how big the riots would become. The judges who

:09:14.:09:19.

sat on all those cases on people who were caught up in the riot said it

:09:20.:09:24.

was absolutely opportunistic and they couldn't say that it was

:09:25.:09:28.

connect with some sort of civil protest that happened in London. I

:09:29.:09:35.

think it was a time when people work climbing the Cenotaph and shops were

:09:36.:09:41.

having their windows smashed by young protesters. There was a wee of

:09:42.:09:52.

at rest in the country anyway and this provided an opportunity for

:09:53.:09:59.

people to vent, but not necessarily about what was happening in

:10:00.:10:05.

Tottenham. The family of Mark Duggan do not feel they have seen justice

:10:06.:10:11.

done. We have to trust the jury system. We have to trust that they

:10:12.:10:15.

did come to the correct verdict. There is a call for a tax on fruit

:10:16.:10:36.

juice. People should think seriously about it. If you want those

:10:37.:10:43.

vitamins, have some fruit. With everyone thinking about diets, that

:10:44.:10:54.

theme is hitting home. I find this story interesting for a different

:10:55.:10:58.

reason. I think drinks are behind the obesity epidemic. 20, 25 years

:10:59.:11:06.

ago, when Starbucks and all the big coffee companies started. I would go

:11:07.:11:10.

in and have four cappuccinos across the day. What I did not think about

:11:11.:11:16.

was that was probably two pints of milk a day I had not been having

:11:17.:11:20.

before across five working days. I was having an extra day off Kallis

:11:21.:11:31.

to ease -- calories every week. When people drink, they do not think in

:11:32.:11:37.

terms of calories. A lot about sugar at the moment. The Bay City 's art

:11:38.:11:46.

is suggesting there should be a tax on some of the fizzy drinks. --

:11:47.:12:00.

obesity tsar. Emma Thompson and Sandra Bullock are up for Golden

:12:01.:12:11.

globes tomorrow night. Apart from Jennifer Lawrence, the average age

:12:12.:12:16.

of the 39 women who are nominated for awards, the average age is 45.

:12:17.:12:32.

In their prime! We disagree about Gravity. That is it for The Papers

:12:33.:12:43.

this hour. We will be back at 11:30pm. Stay with us here on BBC

:12:44.:12:53.

News. At 11pm, we'll have more on the legacy of one of the most

:12:54.:12:56.

influential and divisive figures in Israeli history - Ariel Sharon, who

:12:57.:13:00.

has died at the age of 85. Coming up next, it's Reporters.

:13:01.:13:24.
