rescue their season. They have five matches to go. One game from the

:00:00.:00:00.

Scottish Premiership between the Burnie on and Aberdeen. ``

:00:00.:00:00.

Hibernian. Welcome to look ahead at what the

:00:07.:00:28.

papers will be bringing us tomorrow. Let's look at some of the front

:00:29.:00:33.

pages. The Daily Telegraph shows the sent in the last week by Peaches

:00:34.:00:37.

Geldof of her and her mother, Paula Yates. The papers lead article is

:00:38.:00:43.

OnDemand is from Conservative MPs that the culture Secretary, Maria

:00:44.:00:47.

Miller, gets the sack because of the damage being caused to the party by

:00:48.:00:51.

her toxic expenses scandal. The Daily Express shows the Duchess of

:00:52.:00:57.

Cambridge with Prince George who, along with the Duke, are touring New

:00:58.:01:06.

Zealand. The Daily Mirror also dedicates its front page to Peaches

:01:07.:01:10.

Geldof and that final photograph tweeted shortly before her death. A

:01:11.:01:16.

photograph of Peaches Geldof is also on the front page of the Guardian.

:01:17.:01:21.

The papers lead article is on concerns by food inspectors that

:01:22.:01:25.

infected animals could enter the food chain if proposed changes to

:01:26.:01:30.

abattoir inspections go ahead. The Financial Times is reporting that a

:01:31.:01:34.

new way of measuring the U.K.'s economy will overturn the country 's

:01:35.:01:39.

reputation as a spendthrift, betraying Britain's and set is

:01:40.:01:44.

unexpectedly prudent. We are unexpectedly prudent, there you go.

:01:45.:01:49.

Let's start with the sun. The big story of the day is the death of

:01:50.:01:54.

Peaches Geldof at the age of 25. They speculate on the front page,

:01:55.:01:59.

saying that there were no drugs at the house. This shows how dynamic

:02:00.:02:06.

newspapers can be because we see in other papers today that they are

:02:07.:02:11.

speculating about this last photograph and why she may have

:02:12.:02:16.

photographed it, her mother and so on. Now we are learning from the Sun

:02:17.:02:25.

that no drugs were found at the house and that there is no suicide

:02:26.:02:30.

note. We are moving away from an idea that she may have killed

:02:31.:02:34.

herself and are thinking about underlying health reasons. It is

:02:35.:02:39.

interesting how newspapers are often condemned as being old`fashioned but

:02:40.:02:42.

they are quite dynamic and this time of the evening they are gearing up

:02:43.:02:48.

and constantly reinventing the front page. It is an exciting time to be

:02:49.:02:55.

in papers. So sad. They will have their reporters all over this. Bob

:02:56.:03:10.

Geldof 's tribute there. She was an it girl in teens, going to parties

:03:11.:03:16.

and so on. But she changed a lot. But she was also, as a teenager, she

:03:17.:03:24.

was writing she had her own TV show. She was writing for women's

:03:25.:03:29.

magazines about fashion you might say that this is precocious but you

:03:30.:03:36.

could eight is precocious talent. She was a bright, witty, dynamic,

:03:37.:03:46.

interested, curious girl. As you say, two very small children. From

:03:47.:03:55.

what anybody can judge from photographs they looked happy. It is

:03:56.:04:09.

heartbreaking. Onto the times. The News International paper reading on

:04:10.:04:17.

its front page that the PM is at war with party as Miller Row grows. All

:04:18.:04:26.

of the papers on the right, I should say, are pushing this. News

:04:27.:04:38.

International is pushing it. What I think is interesting is that this is

:04:39.:04:45.

now moving much more towards David Cameron and it is about his

:04:46.:04:51.

judgement and calling on him to do something away from Maria Miller who

:04:52.:04:55.

think it's lost cause. It is interesting. The tabloids have been

:04:56.:05:06.

more or less, up until today, saying the obvious thing that people are

:05:07.:05:16.

out of touch. The Telegraph is more detailed today. This story

:05:17.:05:19.

originally appeared on page four and looked a bit like it was outdated.

:05:20.:05:27.

It is how Maria Miller handled it and how the aid apparently

:05:28.:05:30.

threatened the newspaper that has changed it. Now it is becoming a

:05:31.:05:34.

story about how David Cameron is dealing with it. We have the 1922

:05:35.:05:43.

committee meeting on Wednesday. There are silences, where is the

:05:44.:05:49.

constituency party? We assume that they are behind Maria Miller. It is

:05:50.:05:55.

now getting into an authority situation for the Prime Minister.

:05:56.:06:01.

What is interesting is that the times are going hard on the Miller

:06:02.:06:04.

expenses story with a previously were not so sure. Maybe the new

:06:05.:06:13.

editor is thinking that this is a story which breaks out from the

:06:14.:06:16.

politics bobble iWork and gets readers cross. You have let it so it

:06:17.:06:24.

is not just the Telegraph expenses. Is also self interest? Is is a way

:06:25.:06:29.

of making it clear to the world that if you are saying that we should

:06:30.:06:38.

allow MPs to dictate future jurisdiction of the press and

:06:39.:06:41.

control of the press through a privy Council, then that is a huge

:06:42.:06:51.

mistake. It was not us who brought up Deveson. Be sure that was raised

:06:52.:06:54.

with our reporter when we first looked at it. Some call it the

:06:55.:07:10.

perfect storm. Maria Miller is struggling to do the right thing. It

:07:11.:07:15.

is a coming together of a number of different issues. A former tabloid

:07:16.:07:28.

editor tweeted tonight suggesting that when you are in a hole, stop

:07:29.:07:37.

digging. He is loyal to his team. He is the leader. She is a female

:07:38.:07:43.

minister, he does not have many of them. He does not want to let her go

:07:44.:07:48.

for that reason. He is worried by the Andrew Mitchell situation, he

:07:49.:07:51.

thinks he let him go to easily. Had you let it get to this stage? If you

:07:52.:07:59.

are Prime Minister, although he has his own problems at the moment,

:08:00.:08:04.

since Andy Coulson left Downing Street David Cameron is not appear

:08:05.:08:07.

to have the same group on public perception. Is that nobody around

:08:08.:08:15.

him who can deal with this? He has lost his friends. He has a lot of

:08:16.:08:19.

employees around him had not want to tell the boss that you are wrong. He

:08:20.:08:25.

has lost these guys around him for years into being Prime Minister.

:08:26.:08:30.

Where is the David Cameron that would have gone to Maria Miller and

:08:31.:08:35.

said, look this is getting a bit sticky water we going to do? Cameron

:08:36.:08:44.

understood it in 2011. Interestingly, somebody else has

:08:45.:08:48.

tweeted that John Major had a pretty good economy going in 1997. What

:08:49.:08:58.

sank him? Sleaze. This started with a newspaper crusade at the time.

:08:59.:09:06.

What a thing to quit to labour. You mention the suggestion that it may

:09:07.:09:11.

be because it is not want to fire a woman and there are only apparently

:09:12.:09:14.

for full`time members of the Cabinet. Yet there are four men who

:09:15.:09:20.

went to the same Oxford college and three of them are called Dave. Those

:09:21.:09:26.

of the figures we are talking about. That is appalling. I do not

:09:27.:09:34.

think that the David thing matters so much. It is not appalling that

:09:35.:09:41.

they are all called David. Is it appalling? I don't know. The Lib

:09:42.:09:51.

Dems are no better, they are worse. It is a problem for all of the

:09:52.:09:54.

parties. It does not make it better by having a woman who is apparently

:09:55.:10:00.

saying there with the PM 's blessing when he and she are so clearly out

:10:01.:10:08.

of touch with the public mood. It is this perception of greed and

:10:09.:10:19.

nonsense. Other parties have had this problem you would have thought

:10:20.:10:23.

that you would have liked your lesson. The public will not buy

:10:24.:10:24.

this. Let's look at this cartoon. Two

:10:25.:10:30.

chaps having a chat and here it is. Matt is a genius, he wins awards for

:10:31.:11:08.

this. He is terrific. And they are so small. RBS advises clients to use

:11:09.:11:18.

zero hours contracts. We all bailout RBS. We own them and Maria Miller 's

:11:19.:11:27.

house. Ouch. This is an 81% taxpayer owned bank and it is now apparently

:11:28.:11:35.

advising businesses across Britain to draw up zero hours contracts.

:11:36.:11:41.

Some people like them. I did have a problem with them because in the old

:11:42.:11:45.

days used to call it being freelance but the problem with these contracts

:11:46.:11:50.

is where it becomes your tights to an employer and you are not allowed

:11:51.:11:54.

to leave. It is not unusual, for example in catering, media, creative

:11:55.:12:00.

industries, where people say call me if you need me. But it is where big

:12:01.:12:08.

companies, particularly some of the high street chains, has said that

:12:09.:12:12.

you cannot work for anybody else. That is not a zero hours contract

:12:13.:12:18.

that is tying you into something we have no guaranteed security or job

:12:19.:12:23.

security. This is an extraordinary thing for the RBS to do given its

:12:24.:12:28.

position and that it is in this position. It will drive Vince Cable

:12:29.:12:38.

mad. He has got skin in the game. The government has a stake in this

:12:39.:12:42.

company and he will be angry. He will be angry at a maverick LibDem

:12:43.:12:50.

urging a 40p tax rate. Jeremy Browne, the former Foreign Office

:12:51.:12:57.

and Home Office Minister, thinks that Nick Clegg and David Cameron

:12:58.:13:04.

are being timid. Extraordinary. He was sacked for being too right`wing

:13:05.:13:07.

and is now definitely right wing. This is Conservative policy going

:13:08.:13:12.

further than David Cameron. Another exclusive story for the

:13:13.:13:15.

independent. Although, it is plugging his book, the title of

:13:16.:13:20.

which I would like to reach you because it trips off the tongue.

:13:21.:13:28.

Race plan, an authentic LibDem plan to get Britain ready for the global

:13:29.:13:36.

economy. He is big issue is that all of this is rubbish, we are losing

:13:37.:13:44.

the global race. You did say rather unkindly that it is not a book but a

:13:45.:13:49.

large pamphlet. This is an argument not just made by him but a lot of

:13:50.:13:55.

other people as well. He's trying to think big. He is always telling

:13:56.:13:59.

anybody who will listen to him how important the global race is and we

:14:00.:14:03.

are fighting with our European neighbours and losing against the

:14:04.:14:06.

big countries. That is an argument from Liam Fox. There is not a lot

:14:07.:14:12.

between them. You are a former LibDem apparatchik. Is Nick Clegg to

:14:13.:14:24.

commit? No. Go another television and with Nigel Farage, taking on

:14:25.:14:30.

that debate which is not a hugely popular stance on Europe. That is

:14:31.:14:36.

quite brave. In terms of policy. That is a key part of Liberal

:14:37.:14:40.

Democrat policy. He has gone there, taken it on. Which Nick Clegg want

:14:41.:14:52.

pushed up to 45p or 50p no ID not think he is. Onto the Daily Express

:14:53.:15:03.

with Prince George on tour. He has flown 12 hours, more than that

:15:04.:15:10.

probably. Who knows, he probably cried a little bit. I bet there

:15:11.:15:15.

wasn't anyone sitting in front of him he would have dared to complain.

:15:16.:15:20.

Stuck in the back in economy with this child screaming all the way to

:15:21.:15:26.

New Zealand for 40 hours. That is a wonderful photograph. He just looks

:15:27.:15:34.

like his dad. He does. Joe, Christopher, it has been great

:15:35.:15:39.

having you. Thanks for that. Stay with us, at the top of the hour, we

:15:40.:15:44.

will have much more on the death of the broadcaster and author, Peaches

:15:45.:15:48.

Geldof, who has died at the age of 25. Now, it's time for Sportsday.

:15:49.:16:05.

Welcome to Sportsday. On the way tonight Colin Sunderland are rooted

:16:06.:16:12.

at the bottom of the Premier League as they can seat five goals at

:16:13.:16:20.

Tottenham. `` concede. Aberdeen are clear in second in the Scottish and
