leave it there. Thank you. Now, it is time for The Papers.

:00:00.:00:14.

Hello there, welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will bring

:00:15.:00:19.

us tomorrow. With me are Emma Barnett, the woman's editor at the

:00:20.:00:24.

Daily Telegraph and Kevin Schofield, the chief political correspondent at

:00:25.:00:27.

The Sun. Let us look at the front pages now. The resignation of the

:00:28.:00:29.

former Culture Secretary, Maria Miller, is the Guardian's lead

:00:30.:00:34.

story. It says the Co`op Group is in disarray, as we have been hearing,

:00:35.:00:42.

after almost Lord Myners quit the board. Lord Myners shock resignation

:00:43.:00:50.

makes the business papers. The house price boom spreads outside of London

:00:51.:00:55.

and a crawling Prince George at a play group in New Zealand. The

:00:56.:01:02.

Express claims British numberplates could be out laud. The Mirror has an

:01:03.:01:06.

exclusive interview with the mother of Reeva Steenkamp, the dead

:01:07.:01:10.

girlfriend of Oscar Pistorius. The paper warns we are vulnerable to

:01:11.:01:18.

personal hacking. The Metro say the family of the murder policeman,

:01:19.:01:28.

Keith Blakelock are distraught after another man is cleared of his

:01:29.:01:35.

killing. And house priceses to sore by 2 o o 020 pricing many people out

:01:36.:01:41.

of the market. The Guardian, Maria Miller. Every reviewer this week

:01:42.:01:47.

said I hope this story finishes. I hope it's over. She resigned. Now,

:01:48.:01:52.

the focus seems to have shifted to the Prime Minister? There has been

:01:53.:01:56.

surprise that he didn't fire her. That it was left for her to fall on

:01:57.:02:01.

her sword, there is supposedly one of his aides went out and gave

:02:02.:02:05.

letter that strong nod to do so at 7.00am this morning. Yes, it does

:02:06.:02:10.

seem to have shifted. It has been Prime Minister's Questions today. Ed

:02:11.:02:12.

Miliband took every opportunity to ask why there was no leadership on

:02:13.:02:16.

that front. Lots of people have been asking the same questions, sat at

:02:17.:02:20.

home ` if we did anything with our expenses, yes, she was cleared of

:02:21.:02:23.

the majority of the allegations, there was still thousands of pounds

:02:24.:02:27.

she had to pay back and that short apology delivered. If we did that at

:02:28.:02:31.

work we would be out on our ear, our bosses would have fired us. Why

:02:32.:02:35.

isn't it the same in the Cabinet The Prime Minister said today, that it

:02:36.:02:39.

was important to give people a chance. Maria Miller had apologised.

:02:40.:02:44.

It was right stick by her. Is there going to be any public sympathy for

:02:45.:02:49.

that feeling? I don't think so not when expenses are concerned. I think

:02:50.:02:53.

there is a danger, they won't think it now right enough, there is a

:02:54.:02:57.

danger, maybe the Prime Minister fell victim to this, that the public

:02:58.:03:00.

anger that there was at the time of the expenses scandal in 2009 had

:03:01.:03:06.

gone away almost. That there wasn't that same level of disquiet out

:03:07.:03:11.

there. It brought it back to the surface. The Prime Minister I think

:03:12.:03:14.

made the wrong call by standing by her. There was the suggestion he

:03:15.:03:17.

didn't even read the report before he came out straightaway last week

:03:18.:03:20.

and say that he was standing by her and she didn't need to go. He

:03:21.:03:23.

wouldn't be sacking her. Once he said that obviously he couldn't go

:03:24.:03:26.

back himself. It became a question of whether the pressure would become

:03:27.:03:31.

so great that she would have to resign. As Emma says, I think with

:03:32.:03:35.

Prime Minister's Questions today he was meeting the 1922 Committee of

:03:36.:03:40.

Tory backbenchers tonight. If she hadn't gone by Prime Minister's

:03:41.:03:42.

Questions, it could have been particularly nasty for him. It was

:03:43.:03:46.

still an uncomfortable day for David Cameron, but I think he made sure

:03:47.:03:50.

she was lent on and given no option other than to go. It would be remiss

:03:51.:03:55.

of me, as the woman's editor not to point out, she is the Women's

:03:56.:04:02.

Minister in this. He has a real issue with women and meeting a quota

:04:03.:04:07.

he set himself. There has been the suspicion he was softer he needs

:04:08.:04:12.

women in the Cabinet. He said he would have a third of his Cabinet

:04:13.:04:16.

female by around this point much he has failed. He will fail by 201 a 5,

:04:17.:04:22.

one of the targets he set. As many women in the Cabinet as there are

:04:23.:04:26.

men called Dave. Great. Shall I go home now? There you go. You are on

:04:27.:04:32.

The Papers! The other story on the front page of the Guardian. The

:04:33.:04:37.

breaking news this evening. New chaos at the Co`op as Lord Myners

:04:38.:04:42.

quits the board? It seems to suggest the organisation is pretty much

:04:43.:04:47.

unleadable. The chief executive, Euan Sutherland, went over his pay

:04:48.:04:52.

pact. Lord Myners came in and been set the task of trying to reform the

:04:53.:04:58.

organisation, he met with resistance to that, as we have been hearing. He

:04:59.:05:01.

decided that it's not worth the hassle, basically. They are about to

:05:02.:05:07.

post massive losses about ?2 billion, later this week. It is an

:05:08.:05:11.

organisation in complete chaos. You wonder whether it can be saved at

:05:12.:05:15.

all. Well this is it. The suggestion now is that it could be well be you,

:05:16.:05:21.

you, me the taxpayer bailing this thing out again? I thought you meant

:05:22.:05:25.

offering strategic advice there. If that was it, I don't think I would

:05:26.:05:30.

be welcome in that situation. No, potentially now. To regular people

:05:31.:05:34.

it seems like a massive mess. Nobody has a full grasp why if the guy who

:05:35.:05:42.

can help the situation, and he can't help the situation, why we should

:05:43.:05:46.

care. The man who is a perfect fit for this job. Former Labour

:05:47.:05:50.

Minister, friend of the City? Lower down in the story they say ` he is

:05:51.:05:55.

thought to be staying on to complete hi controversial review. He will do

:05:56.:05:59.

it as a non`board member? He had a good time on that board. He loved

:06:00.:06:01.

it, clearly! The Telegraph and the story about

:06:02.:06:19.

migrants. Labour were saying if it was in Government they would make

:06:20.:06:23.

clear rules for employers and employees not to under price certain

:06:24.:06:29.

British workers. But we are saying, has this not already have them? It

:06:30.:06:34.

is already there. If the Labour Party are going to stop it, a lot of

:06:35.:06:42.

people will be asking that. It says Yvette Cooper will admit the last

:06:43.:06:45.

Labour Government got things wrong on immigration. Perhaps too little,

:06:46.:06:52.

too late is a phrase that springs to mind. It was a point that Nigel

:06:53.:06:57.

Farage made during his debate with Nick Clegg. He said immigrating,

:06:58.:07:04.

migrant workers, it is fantastic for people who need nannies and cleaners

:07:05.:07:10.

and the rich upper`class. Loo`mac James Brokenshire said the same

:07:11.:07:14.

thing. He was criticised for saying it. You mentioned Nigel Farage, but

:07:15.:07:22.

it shows the worrying disquiet amongst the established parties

:07:23.:07:27.

about how UKIP will do in next month's European elections. They are

:07:28.:07:34.

almost trying to move on to the UKIP turf. They are all very worried

:07:35.:07:38.

about how the elections will go and this is an attempt by Labour to say

:07:39.:07:43.

to people, we understand your concerns, most people think if their

:07:44.:07:52.

wages are being driven down by immigration. But I am not sure if it

:07:53.:07:56.

will work at the moment. Nothing seems to be working to try and stop

:07:57.:08:01.

the march of UKIP. Nigel Farage happened to be in

:08:02.:08:05.

Basingstoke. It was eight coincidence. Do you think the Miller

:08:06.:08:13.

family had him around? That Taylor will go on and on. We go to the mail

:08:14.:08:19.

and it is also on the front of the Telegraph as well. House prices to

:08:20.:08:27.

soar until 2020. Middle income earners will be priced out. The

:08:28.:08:31.

Royal institution of chartered surveyors have come out saying that

:08:32.:08:36.

house prices across the whole of the country will keep soaring until

:08:37.:08:41.

2020. We always looked at London when it comes to boom figures, but

:08:42.:08:47.

this is a boom figure. By 2020 the average London home will cost 570

:08:48.:08:52.

thousand pounds. Over half a million. This will stop people from

:08:53.:09:00.

moving themselves. Some people are finding it easier to get on with the

:09:01.:09:04.

new build and they help to buy scheme, but this is a big thing. You

:09:05.:09:10.

cannot imagine it being like this and being sustainable. Bubbles may

:09:11.:09:18.

burst. Absolutely and our take on it now is different to what it was five

:09:19.:09:24.

years ago. At the time we almost bought into the return of boom and

:09:25.:09:30.

bust which we were told by the Chancellor at the time, I cannot

:09:31.:09:35.

remember his name. It was seen as a good thing that prices were going

:09:36.:09:40.

up, but now everyone's approach is, Jesus, these prices are going up and

:09:41.:09:46.

this is definitely a bubble. The Government insists it is a bubble.

:09:47.:09:54.

It bounces around like a bubble. I feel for people who are not on the

:09:55.:09:57.

property ladder, and I feel for them. That breaking news of Lord

:09:58.:10:06.

Myners has curtailed the paper is a bit. We will get on to Prince George

:10:07.:10:14.

next time. You will be back in an hour's time, so stay with us. At 11

:10:15.:10:21.

o'clock a second political scalp is gone over the Maria Miller expenses

:10:22.:10:25.

row. Michael fabric and has been sacked by Tory vice`chairman. We

:10:26.:10:28.

will have more on that. Hello and welcome to Sportsday, I am

:10:29.:10:46.

Hugh Ferris. Manchester United are beaten in Munich and they are out of

:10:47.:10:49.

the Champions League, Arjen Robben rounding off a 3`1 win on the night

:10:50.:10:54.

for the holders, 4`2 on aggregate. So Bayern
