team move forward after a disastrous winter of Rickett. `` cricket.

:00:00.:00:16.

Welcome to our lookahead at what the papers be bringing us tomorrow.

:00:17.:00:24.

Miranda Green and James Miller join me. Let's have a look at the front

:00:25.:00:28.

pages. That start with the Daily Mirror. It is leading with a warning

:00:29.:00:34.

that cuts to the NHS could lead to wait of up to four weeks to see a

:00:35.:00:37.

doctor. There is a different warning in a Guardian about windfarms. David

:00:38.:00:45.

Cameron is considering reducing funding for onshore projects. The

:00:46.:00:51.

Daily Mail claims for migrants died while trying to board lorries bound

:00:52.:00:57.

for Britain. The Daily Express says figures from migration estimate that

:00:58.:00:59.

half a million people will come to the UK from the EU over the next

:01:00.:01:04.

five years. The independent is living with the growing records

:01:05.:01:17.

between Unite and the Labour Party. Frankie Knuckles is also pictured,

:01:18.:01:23.

he has died at the age of 51. The Met Office has developed a new

:01:24.:01:28.

weather modelling system that could make more accurate forecast. There

:01:29.:01:31.

Wallis`Bennett, the girl who died Wallis`Bennett, the girl who died

:01:32.:01:34.

after a wall collapsed at her school. That is the meeting the

:01:35.:01:40.

front page. There is a pun in The Sun.

:01:41.:01:50.

Interesting, that one. We are going to start with that. A girl dies

:01:51.:02:01.

after a wall collapsed. Health and safety programmes tragedy. This

:02:02.:02:05.

school has had Robinson in the past. We Mac this is just a horrible

:02:06.:02:13.

story. Somebody has tweeted about it, no school should go to school

:02:14.:02:19.

and not return home. It is every parent 's nightmare. And then to

:02:20.:02:22.

discover there were ready worries over the place that the council have

:02:23.:02:27.

been fined for health and safety breaches it was a girl fell down a

:02:28.:02:32.

lift shaft. It is claimed that people had already warned them that

:02:33.:02:39.

this wall was wobbly. This is a human tragedy first and foremost but

:02:40.:02:43.

there has to be repercussions for the authorities. Possibly the

:02:44.:02:48.

Scottish government needs to be involved. Interesting because Alex

:02:49.:02:54.

Salmond has mentored on this today. He probably felt that he had to

:02:55.:02:58.

comment because of what happened. Absolutely. It is a horrible,

:02:59.:03:04.

personal tragedy for the family but it does look like a serious failing

:03:05.:03:11.

at this point because of the safety record of this school. I just find

:03:12.:03:17.

it really upsetting. How often do we have these photographs of someone

:03:18.:03:23.

who has just died or whose body has just been discovered. It is always a

:03:24.:03:28.

young girl with their whole life in front of them and it is just a

:03:29.:03:31.

horrible front page. It is upsetting. All right. Let's move on

:03:32.:03:39.

to the Mirror. A four`week wait to see your GP. Doctors face 1.5

:03:40.:03:45.

billion shortage. It sounds a bit dramatic. They are actually

:03:46.:03:51.

reporting on what sounds like a bona fides report from a consultancy firm

:03:52.:03:58.

who are directed attention to a dip in funding for general practice of

:03:59.:04:06.

17% by 2017. What they are saying is that dip in funding will coincide

:04:07.:04:12.

with a big impact on primary care of the ageing population. So more

:04:13.:04:17.

appointments will be needed as the population ages at the same time the

:04:18.:04:20.

funding is declining. They are saying there will be no way that

:04:21.:04:25.

surgeries can do what they have been trying to do. The danger with that

:04:26.:04:32.

is, diseases which need to be spotted early might be missed. That

:04:33.:04:37.

is why they are able to say, sleeping killer is report. It is not

:04:38.:04:43.

great for the government at the moment the cause it was not a tough

:04:44.:04:50.

winter. There was not bad and AT crisis. Primary care and emergency

:04:51.:05:04.

go together. Not an easy thing to deal with. It is the fact that it is

:05:05.:05:13.

the first port of call. People have trouble getting an appointment and

:05:14.:05:15.

therefore, a story like this hit home. The government would say that

:05:16.:05:22.

it is making efforts to try and get more GPs into the system and more

:05:23.:05:27.

nurses to deal with the problems. As you say, Miranda, it was a very mild

:05:28.:05:35.

winter. It wasn't the crisis that a lot of people foresaw. So they got

:05:36.:05:40.

away with it. The other way of looking at it is that Labour critics

:05:41.:05:43.

said there would be an `` A crisis. Union boss threatened

:05:44.:06:00.

to launch rival party to labour. James, you are actually at this

:06:01.:06:05.

Westminster briefing that Len McCluskey, Labour 's biggest backer

:06:06.:06:12.

of the union was at and he said some alarming things. He did. He said he

:06:13.:06:18.

was going to try not to provide too much ammunition for the Tories. Well

:06:19.:06:27.

that worked! And then he proceeded to hand massive arsenal to the

:06:28.:06:32.

Tories. I have to try and pick which online to use. The Independent have

:06:33.:06:35.

gone with the one about launching a rival party. I would suggest that is

:06:36.:06:40.

wishing it. He did not threaten that he did say, TRANSLATION: Unite would

:06:41.:06:46.

have no trouble backing a rival party is Labour lose. It is not

:06:47.:06:53.

entirely up to Len McCluskey. Various hoops have to be jumped

:06:54.:06:58.

through in the mechanism before they can stop backing labour. But it is

:06:59.:07:05.

more than a shot across the bounds for Ed Miliband. But they are

:07:06.:07:15.

angry, they? They feel that Ed Miliband, he is just not being

:07:16.:07:19.

radical enough in his policies and not aiming enough at working people.

:07:20.:07:26.

There is a debate he called it grumble time, Douglas Alexander is

:07:27.:07:32.

in charge of the election when Len McCluskey was asked if he backed

:07:33.:07:37.

Douglas Alexander, he had a convenient coughing fit and did not

:07:38.:07:42.

seem to be able to answer which gives you some idea of the battle

:07:43.:07:47.

that is going on inside. He says they need to be bold. Labour needs

:07:48.:07:55.

to offer... They have to be very left wing in the offer. Miranda,

:07:56.:08:02.

this debate is going on, is the party going to be torn apart? I

:08:03.:08:08.

would say it is a siren voices on the left. These elections are won

:08:09.:08:15.

and lost on the centre ground. The union movement may not be what suits

:08:16.:08:23.

the voters. There is a row going on as well because Ed Miliband

:08:24.:08:26.

commissioned a policy review which everyone in the Labour Party assumes

:08:27.:08:31.

will be quite radical. Now they are desperately trying to get out of

:08:32.:08:35.

their commitment to policies in the policy review because they might be

:08:36.:08:38.

seen as too extreme and not moderate enough so there is a huge battle

:08:39.:08:42.

going on at the moment about which direction Ed Miliband should take.

:08:43.:08:46.

In the now very short run`up to the election. And they might consider

:08:47.:08:55.

freeing `` freezing rail prices as might the review is talking about

:08:56.:09:01.

much larger, grander issues to do with refashioning society. Which has

:09:02.:09:04.

really frightened horses and they are trying to back off from them.

:09:05.:09:11.

James was saying that this gives ammunition to the Tories. Partly

:09:12.:09:14.

because of the fact that Len McCluskey and the union bosses seem

:09:15.:09:17.

to enjoy it beating up Ed Miliband so much. They are demonstrating

:09:18.:09:23.

their power. They put him in. That is bubbly part of the resentment

:09:24.:09:26.

that they feel. They are going to hammer him even harder because he

:09:27.:09:35.

was their man. It is because of the unions that it is not the other

:09:36.:09:40.

Miliband running the party. It doesn't huge damage to the person,

:09:41.:09:46.

he is after all, the leader of their political segments. They might be

:09:47.:09:51.

better advised to give him a bit of support. Is it possible to reach to

:09:52.:10:02.

the centre and keep those on the left happy? Can you do both? If you

:10:03.:10:09.

win the election. This is the trouble. We will find out in May

:10:10.:10:18.

next year what was or is the right course of action and whether Ed

:10:19.:10:21.

Miliband can pull off the balancing act. Let go or in to the Daily Mail.

:10:22.:10:28.

I am dying to get into this. Desperate migrant had been killed

:10:29.:10:42.

trying to catch lorries into the UK. This brings us back to the French

:10:43.:10:46.

for migrants that became a focal point for this issue of migrants

:10:47.:10:51.

getting into Britain through the Eurotunnel and few use a go. It was

:10:52.:10:54.

supposed to be closed down and out with. It would appear it is still an

:10:55.:10:59.

issue as there are still people risking their lives to get into

:11:00.:11:11.

Britain. It is based on a report. All of this on the eve of the second

:11:12.:11:16.

debate between Nigel Farage and Nick debate between Nigel Farage and Nick

:11:17.:11:19.

Clegg. Concerning whether or not we should be in the EU. This is all

:11:20.:11:23.

part of that debate. Absolutely. That is why Migration Watch would

:11:24.:11:31.

have released this report now. The polling date `` data shows that even

:11:32.:11:36.

those who have decided to support UKIP, their concern is not actually

:11:37.:11:43.

the EU, they are very worried about immigration which has become

:11:44.:11:45.

increasingly unpopular in this country. It is the interaction

:11:46.:11:51.

between EU freedom of movement rules and a certain segment of the

:11:52.:11:55.

electorate is unhappiness with immigration. These front pages are

:11:56.:12:02.

very useful to him in the debate but as we have found with Romania and

:12:03.:12:08.

Bulgaria joining the EU and having the right to go wherever they wanted

:12:09.:12:12.

on January one. The scare stories just evaporated. It just didn't

:12:13.:12:18.

happen. It is possible that the public are getting Inuit to this

:12:19.:12:25.

kind of ominous report. As we say, the debate is taking place tomorrow.

:12:26.:12:32.

Between Mr Raj and Mr Clegg. `` Nigel Farage. He won last time. Who

:12:33.:12:42.

will do it tonight? I would describe that poll differently. I would say

:12:43.:12:47.

the poll showed that more people agreed with Nigel Farage's point of

:12:48.:12:53.

view. When one person is arguing for something intrinsically very

:12:54.:12:58.

unpopular and the other is riding a wave of public unhappiness, it is

:12:59.:13:02.

different. I think it is more difficult the second time for Nick

:13:03.:13:05.

Clegg. Much more difficult because the first time, he was able to

:13:06.:13:09.

recapture a little bit of the trust that people used to have in him

:13:10.:13:14.

before the days of the Coalition. And trying to repeat the performance

:13:15.:13:20.

this week is a really tough call. Nigel Farage started from a very low

:13:21.:13:24.

base last time. If you had asked me who had won, I would have said Nigel

:13:25.:13:32.

Farage. We know Nick Clegg is a good debater so Nigel Farage really

:13:33.:13:38.

surprised me. He won because he passed my expectations. The second

:13:39.:13:41.

time around, I know what to expect. My expectations will be higher. I

:13:42.:13:47.

suspect that Nick Clegg might have an easier time of it. Onto the Sun.

:13:48.:14:03.

Rip`off Britain shirt. ?90. More scandals raised by readers. It's

:14:04.:14:09.

always the way, when one of the Premier league teams brings out a

:14:10.:14:13.

new shirt. It always seems to be incredibly expensive compared to the

:14:14.:14:22.

previous kit. `` Premier League. As you say, those shirts seemed to

:14:23.:14:28.

become more expensive but this is the mother of all rip`off shirts, I

:14:29.:14:33.

would suggest. ?90! It's a lot of money. You could go and support

:14:34.:14:42.

somebody in the fourth test Bell division if you want a cheaper

:14:43.:14:46.

shirt! You can't choose who you are going to support. `` in the fourth

:14:47.:14:53.

division. It is slightly different. There is this national aspect to it.

:14:54.:15:00.

90 quid is a lot of money in the current climate. Especially compared

:15:01.:15:06.

to the cost of these things. I don't know where they are made but

:15:07.:15:09.

probably not some highly paid factory. A very healthy markup, I

:15:10.:15:14.

would imagine. But, yes, absolutely. Many thanks. Much

:15:15.:15:23.

appreciated. Tonight, the newspaper industry is holding its Oscars, the

:15:24.:15:30.

press awards. The front page of the year has gone to the... Sunday

:15:31.:15:35.

People for their piece on Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson. That

:15:36.:15:40.

became one of the year's Egypt stories. The Mail on Sunday one

:15:41.:15:43.

scoop of the year for its investigation into the former Co`op

:15:44.:15:49.

bank chief and took the award for news team of the year. It has been

:15:50.:15:53.

announced that the Guardian has one newspaper of the year. That's it for
