appeal a 14 month transfer ban after FIFA found they had broken rules on

:00:00.:00:00.

transfer of players under the age of 18. That is all coming up in around

:00:00.:00:00.

15 minutes. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:19.

to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are

:00:20.:00:21.

the political commentator, Daisy McAndrew, and Simon Watkins, City

:00:22.:00:28.

editor at The Mail on Sunday. Let's have a look at some of the front

:00:29.:00:32.

pages. We will start with the Daily Telegraph. It is leading with the

:00:33.:00:36.

potential health risks of the current smoky conditions. The

:00:37.:00:40.

Guardian claims ministers want to make GCSEs tougher by pegging marts

:00:41.:00:44.

from students in England with theirs from pupils in China. The Metro is

:00:45.:00:48.

covering a case of a businessman who bled to death after being stabbed by

:00:49.:00:56.

carjackers. The Daily Mirror was people to keep children indoors. The

:00:57.:01:00.

Daily Mail is leading with Nigella Lawson, who has apparently been

:01:01.:01:03.

banned from the US after admitting in court she took cocaine. The Daily

:01:04.:01:07.

Express headlines the booming property prices, saying the price of

:01:08.:01:12.

the average home has soared by ?16,000 in 12 months. Onto the

:01:13.:01:16.

times, it claims the Prime Minister is being pressurised from barring

:01:17.:01:23.

Scots from voting in the next election if they vote for

:01:24.:01:27.

independence. We will start with the Daily Mirror. All the smoke out

:01:28.:01:32.

that, central parts of England, the East and the south`east affected by

:01:33.:01:36.

this. Keep children out of killer smog, according to the Daily Mirror.

:01:37.:01:43.

As you said, across great swathes of the country, we are seeing Saharan

:01:44.:01:52.

dust and the pollution mixing. You can see there is a real PC per.

:01:53.:01:56.

There are different opinions coming out from government audience. There

:01:57.:02:02.

is a story about keeping children out of killer smog. It looks like a

:02:03.:02:09.

cyclist with a mask on. That does not look like an emergency bike,

:02:10.:02:16.

more like something he wears every day. There has been advised that if

:02:17.:02:22.

you are asthmatic, keep out of the smog. Older people, the vulnerable

:02:23.:02:28.

and children. Because children run around, they breathe in deeper when

:02:29.:02:31.

they are outside than us grown`ups. Therefore, they will be breathing in

:02:32.:02:37.

more. Public health for England, which is a government body and the

:02:38.:02:42.

Department for the environment are giving completely different advice

:02:43.:02:48.

on the matter. The Department for health is saying, it is fine, there

:02:49.:02:53.

is very little chance of you getting a bad health effect. That is a mixed

:02:54.:03:01.

message. Not many of us are in a position to discuss the voracity of

:03:02.:03:06.

this. There are other reports which said we came close to this a few

:03:07.:03:11.

weeks ago. It is hard to know how much the news agenda has promoted

:03:12.:03:16.

the severity of this and how much it is real. The Met Office took over

:03:17.:03:25.

Defra 's pollution warnings. In some ways, they wanted to flag up the

:03:26.:03:29.

fact they are now using the Met Office and they will be much more

:03:30.:03:34.

efficient and precise in their predictions. It is a publicity coup

:03:35.:03:39.

for them in some ways. You can see this stuff. Because you can see it,

:03:40.:03:44.

is it likely you would want to run through it? Possibly not. That is

:03:45.:03:52.

probably why it is getting a lot more publicity. It is much more

:03:53.:03:59.

visible. You can run your finger across your car. We know it is to do

:04:00.:04:09.

with pictures and words. There may be something which would not have

:04:10.:04:13.

been on the front page if we did not have Saharan dust. Some of the

:04:14.:04:16.

pictures from lunch and we have seen, there is a smoggy shot of

:04:17.:04:25.

London on the front of the Daily Mirror. That is kind of reminiscent

:04:26.:04:31.

of Beijing, which has a no tourist problem. Let's go to the Guardian.

:04:32.:04:43.

Tougher GCSE marks paid to China schools. Clear, there is a feeling

:04:44.:04:49.

from Michael Gove and of course have been told they must toughen up and

:04:50.:04:53.

sort this out when it comes to comparing British students to those

:04:54.:04:57.

in other countries, particularly China. There is a slight concern

:04:58.:05:02.

which the Guardian story raises, to what degree we can compare like with

:05:03.:05:07.

like. Two different education systems. One does not know from what

:05:08.:05:19.

Paul the students are being drawn. I have some caution about that, which

:05:20.:05:21.

the Guardian races as well as to whether we are comparing like with

:05:22.:05:25.

like and whether it is measurement for its own sake and is not

:05:26.:05:29.

addressing a real problem. We all know there is no love lost between

:05:30.:05:33.

the education establishment and Michael Gove. They called him the

:05:34.:05:46.

blog. What happens when these statistics come out, this is based

:05:47.:05:53.

international student assessment international student assessment

:05:54.:05:57.

placed us quite badly compared to placed us quite badly compared to

:05:58.:06:02.

the likes of Shanghai and lots of other countries, career and so on.

:06:03.:06:08.

Politicians do not like that. All these statistics are used as a

:06:09.:06:11.

political football. Michael Gove is rubbish, the education system is

:06:12.:06:16.

rubbish. When he says, I want to make GCSEs harder so that our kids

:06:17.:06:19.

will do better in these assessments, that again will be used

:06:20.:06:25.

as a critical football. Let's stay with the Guardian and the big debate

:06:26.:06:30.

tonight, the rumble in Central London. Nick Clegg tactics fail as

:06:31.:06:35.

Nigel Farage romped home in the EU debate. He did not go too well last

:06:36.:06:43.

week for Nigel `` Nick Clegg and apparently tonight was a failure as

:06:44.:06:49.

well. Apparently it is worse. Opinion polls show a landslide in

:06:50.:06:58.

favour... Was that 69%? 69% thought Nigel Farage had one, 31% that Nick

:06:59.:07:05.

Clegg had one. By the end of the debate, it was quite clear that is

:07:06.:07:10.

what happened. I felt Nigel Fries had adopted a much more measured

:07:11.:07:15.

tone. He seemed, and although there was passion in what he was saying,

:07:16.:07:20.

it came across as more convincing, I think. A whitewash, I am afraid, for

:07:21.:07:28.

him. YouGov has got pretty much the same result. It is not a fluke poll.

:07:29.:07:33.

It is definitely the case that the viewer felt that Nigel Farage did

:07:34.:07:38.

much better. There is something to be said for he had an easier

:07:39.:07:41.

argument. Whenever you are antiestablishment, anti`anything, on

:07:42.:07:48.

the anti`side of the fence, it is much easier to say, a plague on all

:07:49.:07:54.

your houses. He was anti`intervention, anti`rich,

:07:55.:08:00.

anti`immigration. He used a phrase several times. He talked about our

:08:01.:08:10.

career political class. He talked about rich people benefiting from

:08:11.:08:16.

immigration. He is playing to a sense of this enchant tenant against

:08:17.:08:24.

the public. `` disenchantment. If we look at political leaders, they do

:08:25.:08:28.

feel different. The debate itself seems to be changing. He is not

:08:29.:08:35.

really competing on the facts and figures in terms of the economic

:08:36.:08:40.

benefits that some people suggest come to the UK as far as immigration

:08:41.:08:46.

is concerned. He is talking about the atmospherics of it all. How do

:08:47.:08:50.

you, if you're batting for the EU, combat that? That's the difficulty.

:08:51.:08:57.

The facts won't cut it and he knew that. The Lib Dems were spinning

:08:58.:09:04.

before hand that he was going to be more passion. Being passionately the

:09:05.:09:09.

status quo is almost impossible. He is also now the Deputy Prime

:09:10.:09:12.

Minister, he is the establishment. When he was doing the debates before

:09:13.:09:17.

the last general election he was the outsider going to say ya boo sucks

:09:18.:09:27.

to the party leader. He can't do that any more. Very worrying times

:09:28.:09:32.

for Cameron and Miliband, because when you hear Nigel Farage talking

:09:33.:09:37.

about the working class being a white underclass, he is, as

:09:38.:09:43.

unattractive as the language is, appealing to all hard`working

:09:44.:09:46.

people, as the other politicians would call it. He knew he was

:09:47.:10:00.

saying, you know, Afro car beens as well. Don't tell me that was by

:10:01.:10:04.

accident. The suggestion is that perhaps Mr

:10:05.:10:15.

Clegg was feeling he had to go for it, as it were, the nature of the

:10:16.:10:20.

debate and the feeling of the debate changed from last week. It did. I

:10:21.:10:27.

think Daisy is right. It is hard to be aggressively on the front foot

:10:28.:10:31.

when you are defending the status quo, to come out fighting for

:10:32.:10:35.

moderate change, which is Clegg's position. The only time he really

:10:36.:10:41.

seemed to manage that was when Nigel Farage said he wanted the country to

:10:42.:10:47.

be stuck in the past and not pro`diversity or gay marriage ` when

:10:48.:10:57.

he said that Nigel Farage didn't want that. It is the brilliance of

:10:58.:11:03.

diversity, if that's what you feel. It is being able to get Polish and

:11:04.:11:08.

French and German food. You've got to get down to their level don't

:11:09.:11:15.

you? I think Nick had a go at that. He talked about how he thought it

:11:16.:11:22.

was marvellous, Britain and its diversity, but it is a hard thing to

:11:23.:11:27.

sell. He started talking about we could as active members of the EU

:11:28.:11:32.

reduce our roaming rates on our mobile phones. It got a good

:11:33.:11:36.

audience reaction but it's not exactly hearts and minds. It is not

:11:37.:11:39.

exactly grand He came out with so many lame

:11:40.:11:48.

joefrjts scripted in advance. You had to look at the Lib Dem Twitter

:11:49.:11:54.

feed to say they were on`cuff rather than off the cuff. And one of the

:11:55.:12:00.

reasons why Nick Clegg went for the Putin issue, it is one area he could

:12:01.:12:03.

be aggressive and he had something to go for. One final word, lots of

:12:04.:12:11.

polls are saying how Farage won, and Lib Dem supporters or voters, many

:12:12.:12:15.

of those also thought that Nick Clegg lost. It is easy for people

:12:16.:12:19.

like us to say that Clegg is going to lose a lot of votes. They were

:12:20.:12:23.

specifically not asked about their voting intention. They were purely

:12:24.:12:29.

asked who won. People will go, I agree with Nick Clegg but I think he

:12:30.:12:34.

lost. Exactly. It is not necessarily two plus two equals five in that

:12:35.:12:40.

case. You are going to be back in an hour to look at other stories in the

:12:41.:12:44.

headlines. Thank you. At the top of the hour we'll have much more

:12:45.:12:49.

reaction to that debate. The second clash over Europe between the UKIP

:12:50.:12:54.

and the Deputy Prime Minister. Coming up now it is time for

:12:55.:12:56.

Sportsday. Hello and welcome to Sportsday. I'm

John Watson. Here's what's on the way. Chelsea beaten in Paris as

:13:16.:13:20.

Mourinho has a mountain to climb in the Champions League.

:13:21.:13:25.
