player. Plus, we will round up all the day 's action from day one of
the Grand National Festival. That is in 15 minutes after the papers.
Hello. Welcome to the look ahead at what the papers will be bringing us
tomorrow. With the other financial analyst, Louise Cooper. In the
Express, it says all the smog hanging around could be a taste of
things to come with pollution levels are likely to rise in the future.
The Daily Telegraph says MPs conspired to protect Maria Miller
over serious censure over her expenses. In the Guardian it claims
the average family will be ?1000 worse off every year by the time of
the general election. In the Metro, the lights on tablets and mobile
phones could be keeping Britain awake. In the Daily Mail, they lead
on the smog. It talks about the Government 's failure to improve air
quality. We will start with the Express. It is going so well
tonight. We'll start with the Express. Smog misery hits millions.
A good story for you. On Monday morning when I wake up, there was
some dust on my car. I thought, how did that happen? Later on, I find it
is from the Sahara and it is still around. We do not know everything
about the world. You can still amaze us and cause a huge problems. We are
told tomorrow that this cloud will go. We thought it would go away
today. What is interesting and amazing is that a third of the
country 's 5.4 alien sufferers of asthma have had an attack. For us,
we have had older readers. Quite a lot will have respiratory problems.
It is a very serious story. We laugh about it. It is hilarious. It is a
very serious problem. Three people die of asthma every single day. This
is without the toxic smog from the Sahara. It is dust from the Sahara
and desist from factories and homes here in the UK. And diesel emissions
as well. Talking about the health implications, pretty much all the
909 services in those affected areas are reporting increased numbers of
calls. `` 999. You love to tease Michael about putting weather
stories on the front page of the Express. I have been here when you
have done that. I agree. I am not an editor of a national newspaper but
he is. I would have put this on the front page. As you said, this story
does affect millions. What many people who do not suffer from asthma
do not realise, it is a killer illness and it is a very serious
illness. You can see that from the statistics.
What I particularly like is that David Cameron did not go for his
morning ran and Boris Johnson ignored all the experts. I quite
like Nick Clegg. You quoted him in the paper as saying, he had not been
playing his usual games of tennis because he concentrated on a
different game back and forth Nigel Farage. I've thought this was a
London centric story to start with. It has spread all over the country.
We have got pictures of Liverpool. It is all across the north`west as
well. We did worry that it was just around here but it is everywhere. We
have all got sore throats. We had a piece this afternoon from the
Midlands area and the guy with cystic fibrosis cannot leave his
house. I live on a hill in London. You could definitely see it this
morning. Sign you are posh, living on a help. You are posh, living on a
hill. And interesting story about saving Miller. MPs overruled an
official enquiry into the Culture Secretary 's expenses planes. The
Parliamentary Commissioner had said she needed to pay back ?44,000 but
MPs said she did not. Reading through all the wire and the papers,
I have not got to the bottom of it. What I find interesting is that it
was not a secret that interest rates were cut. It was pretty much on
every single national paper and in very Bedi broadcast news. Either she
lived in a sealed box and did not realise interest rates were cut
which I cannot believe, or she clearly does not read her bank
statements. It is obvious when your mortgage interest rate goes down.
She does not bother reading her bank statements. The allegation was that
interest rates when damage she continued to claim a certain level
for her payments. Either she did not know that interest rates went
down... You did not know that? Or, she does not read her bank
statements. This is a woman as part of the Government who is getting
tough on government spending, cracking down on posterity and
supposed to ensure that every penny is spent wisely. All, she delivered
he did it. That cannot be the case. She could have been paying down a
higher level of interest, couldn't she? Normally you have to tell the
bank, I will overpay on capital. You actually have to tell your bank you
are overpaying capital. How can you not know that rates were cut 2.5%?
That has been the big story in the news. MPs are conspiring to save, in
that opinion. We have had this investigation from the standards
commissioner and said she would have to pay back 45 thousand pounds. She
apologised, apart from the fact she was prevaricating. That is why she
has apologised. She has said, I have dealt with the matter. 832 seconds
statement of apology in the House of Commons, it is said. The Daily
Telegraph push this story initially. They are like a dog with a bone. It
was just after the Levinson enquiry and she was the Culture Secretary.
They are a dog with a bone because her aide said, you do know she is
involved with looking forward to a new press commission, or whatever it
is going to be. Therefore, you do not want to print this sort of a
story. She was involved in the regulation of the press. It is
probably best if you did not investigate. You get the impression
the Daily Telegraph will not leave this alone. The Labour Party will
not leave this alone. They say she should resign over this. Listening
to our deputy political editor, he was saying there are whispers that
Mr Cameron cannot lose another one from his Cabinet. `` another woman.
Also, she may be reshuffled to the Welsh office but that is just
rumour. In the Guardian, heavy drinkers will be allowed liver
transplants. This is a very emotive story. The classic one here is
George Best. He had a transplant and then died of the illness. This is
very difficult. It is very problematic and emotive. Anyone
waiting for a liver transplant that needs a liver because it is an
illness not of their own fault with look at this and say why would
someone with alcohol problems get a liver ahead of me. It is very
difficult. They are saying this is just a trial of 20 patients, a pilot
scheme. They are saying it is young alcoholics who have not realise the
damage they have done to themselves. Once they get a new liver they will
then stop drinking and therefore it is worth doing. Now, in this
country, we have a problem with signing people up to donate organs
as it is. I think this needs to be handled incredibly carefully. We
cannot afford to lose public support for organ donation. This is a very
difficult decision. It is a trial. The organ transplant service says it
is a pilot scheme and it is worthwhile. The reason for this is
because there are so many people who are dying of liver disease. It seems
as if there are so many people. They cannot leave them. They will say
there are so many people who are drinking too much he will get liver
disease. You cannot leave them all. The head of the NHS Blood and
Transplant service said, we transplant humans and not angels.
You are not refused cancer treatment because you smoke. You're not put
back together because you skydive. Those with the Bay City get treated.
Sky they have tried to stop people from drinking. Certain shops have
stopped stocking up of four counts of very strong lager which certain
people were going in and it was cheap. They have increased ranges of
craft beers and things like that, which have more alcohol in them. You
move it from there and it goes over there. It is still fairly cheap. If
people want to drink, they will drink. That is the problem. They
will need to tackle it and give people like this transplant
otherwise there would be huge numbers of people dying. ) it is a
pilot scheme and it will be interesting to see what comes out of
that story. We will stay with the Guardian. The US created Cuban
twitter network to create an arrest. I think they do it for laughs. It is
a bit of fun. They have tried everything else. They have created
their own form of Cuban twitter. The associated press have been doing
some digging on this found out that this was deliberately set up to
encourage Flash mobs in the Communist country and social media
`based protests. So we will have a Cuban spring. It's a great idea.
It's hilarious. They drag up this memo. There would be no mention of
the US government involvement, said this member. It will give the
appearance of a commercial enterprise. And man was quoted on
behalf the US government, Idaho he managed to save this about laughing,
and said it was not a covert programme and it was a development
assistance programme. They said it was discreet, note covert for the
better difference. This is weird than trying to blow up the Dell
Castro with his own cigar? It's on a par. They say that's not what they
were aiming to do. It will be a comedy Trojan horse. That's so
funny. Such a great story. Let's go back to the express. Cracking photo,
this. It was the best photo, actually. The Queen and the Pope
make all the front pages. They are the most famous people in the entire
world. I wonder, I'm God 's representative on earth, no, I am.
I'm sure there was. I love the fact Prince Philip is holding the risky.
It has to be said, the Pope does have very beady`eyed bunnies looking
at that. He's thinking, that's my whiskey. He has got sick of
communion wine. Piquancy Balmoral whiskey. The alcohol is from a
hamper which was the Queen 's official present to the Pope and
included grandad's chutney. Venison and beer. Will she be allowed to
give Scotch whiskey, if Scotland votes to leave us? If Alex Salmond
allows her into the country to visit Balmoral. OK, the same picture, but
a slightly different take on it, actually. No alcohol on the front of
the Guardian. Interesting, though, the first foreign visit for three
years. Yes, she likes to meet the Pope, and the Queen does that.
There's Pope, particularly, Francis, seems keen on these opportunities as
well. Hands across the ocean. He has been the good PR Pope. This serves
to help him and the Catholic Church change the image that had over the
last few years. Relations between the two have improved since Henry
VIII because they didn't get on them. They've had a testy
relationship recently. You will be back in one hour. Many thanks for
that. Stay with us here on BBC News. We will get more on all that high
pollution and the problems there. Look at that. That's what it's all
about. But coming up next it's time for Sportsday.
Hello and welcome to Sportsday. I'm John Watson. On the way tonight.
