applications of the future but living and working in squats. That

:00:00.:00:00.

is in Click at 10:45pm on BBC News. Welcome to our look ahead at what

:00:00.:00:20.

the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me to do that the

:00:21.:00:24.

broadcaster my colleague Henny Smith, and the political journalist

:00:25.:00:31.

Sean. `` Penny Smith. This is the Independent. It leaves on the

:00:32.:00:35.

volatiles situation in Ukraine, saying its future is hanging in the

:00:36.:00:41.

balance. The Financial Times carries a photo of Wilson Kipsang at the

:00:42.:00:45.

London Marathon. Its main story is that almost 1 billion people are at

:00:46.:00:48.

risk of slipping out of the ranks of the middle classes in the developing

:00:49.:00:53.

world. As you can imagine, Mo Farah makes a few appearances tomorrow,

:00:54.:00:57.

this one on the front page of the Telegraph. The paper leads a report

:00:58.:01:02.

by MPs calling for a revolution in public Administration. This is the

:01:03.:01:06.

Metro. It reports that graduate salaries fell in real terms by 11%

:01:07.:01:13.

between 2007`2012. The Guardian shows Liverpool players celebrating

:01:14.:01:16.

their victory over Man City, but of course leads on Ukraine, as many

:01:17.:01:20.

papers do, saying Russia is warning the country could face a civil war.

:01:21.:01:24.

Ukraine also on the front page of the Times, here the focus is on the

:01:25.:01:28.

country's deployment of troops to drive out suspected Russian

:01:29.:01:33.

militants. There is a picture of the Duchess of Cambridge enjoying a

:01:34.:01:36.

glass of wine. Some say to dispel rumours that she is pregnant. Kate

:01:37.:01:42.

and William are pictured on the Daily Mail's FrontPage, but the main

:01:43.:01:45.

article says alleged victims of the deceased former MP for Rochdale,

:01:46.:01:49.

Cyril Smith, may the Liberal Democrats if it can be shown that

:01:50.:01:52.

they knew about the alleged abuse and fails to try to stop him. A mix

:01:53.:01:58.

of stories. It is difficult coming Ukraine, isn't it, because it is

:01:59.:02:03.

developing so quickly. There is so much going on for newspaper editors

:02:04.:02:07.

to keep it updated is difficult. The Independent have been very clever by

:02:08.:02:12.

presenting a very special report from their reporter, in Slavonia

:02:13.:02:19.

asked, which lost its police station yesterday and a photograph of the

:02:20.:02:23.

suspected pro`Russian militants because Russia denies they have

:02:24.:02:26.

anything to do with this, with AK`47s. That sums it up all, really,

:02:27.:02:34.

doesn't it? I tell you what is Ukraine `` I tell you what is awful

:02:35.:02:37.

about Ukraine, they came away from the Iron Curtain and only to have it

:02:38.:02:42.

snatched away. There is this awful feeling that it is being snatched

:02:43.:02:46.

away, piece by piece, first Premier goes and there was the feeling at

:02:47.:02:50.

the time, well, it is wrong and it is not right, but that is it, that

:02:51.:02:56.

is where it stops, just Crimea. Now, it is elsewhere. You start thinking

:02:57.:03:02.

of this horrible, creeping feeling that it is going to be taken back,

:03:03.:03:06.

piece by piece. The problem is that is the normal people in all this, it

:03:07.:03:12.

is so awful. There they are, trying to live their lives and wondering

:03:13.:03:15.

whether they are going to be taken over. A lot of them want to continue

:03:16.:03:22.

the relationship with Russia, but as Penny said, they fear they will be

:03:23.:03:27.

taken over by Russia. One thing to bear in mind with the reporting,

:03:28.:03:31.

wherever we happen to live in the world, the feeling is very much

:03:32.:03:36.

split but certainly the picture is carried on the Independent, there is

:03:37.:03:42.

much reporting, not so much in the Independent but the copy, that they

:03:43.:03:45.

must be Russian because they are carrying Russian weapons. You and I

:03:46.:03:50.

were chatting with the fact they are AK`47s which are used universally

:03:51.:03:55.

around the world but... It is the number`1 choice. One of the other

:03:56.:03:58.

headlines in Independent is the future of country in the post will

:03:59.:04:04.

call `` the post`walled `` the post`Cold War consensus is hanging

:04:05.:04:08.

in the balance. This is something that is not on the radar or we are

:04:09.:04:15.

all reporting on. The day by day the east and west is decoupling.

:04:16.:04:18.

Business deals put on hold, a search for new Sochi is decoupling.

:04:19.:04:21.

Business deals put on hold, a search for new sort use of energy as an

:04:22.:04:24.

alternative to Russia. The Swedes have cancelled military

:04:25.:04:26.

cooperation. The Chinese have cancelled a meeting on oil and

:04:27.:04:29.

Russia is telling its citizens not to go to countries which are

:04:30.:04:32.

friendly with America, quite a lot of the world. We are going back in

:04:33.:04:38.

time. The curtain is coming across a game. It is the Iron Curtain. That

:04:39.:04:41.

is what it feels like, like a chill wind. Is Washington helping? More

:04:42.:04:49.

sanctions on Russia, Russia is one of these countries, stupid I know,

:04:50.:04:53.

that thinks having a large military is important and we are much more

:04:54.:04:56.

enlightened here in the United Kingdom, which is why we have no

:04:57.:05:00.

chance whatsoever when it came to feet on the ground. It is one of

:05:01.:05:05.

those things, the tension is ratcheting up on both sides and you

:05:06.:05:09.

are thinking, yes, it is easy to point the finger at Russia but could

:05:10.:05:12.

there be more we can do in terms of some of the rhetoric. Let's look at

:05:13.:05:17.

how the Guardian is reporting, fears rise of second Crimea. The US

:05:18.:05:21.

accuses Russia of orchestrating the latest violence, what you have been

:05:22.:05:26.

talking about. Do you think that Ukraine is a pawn between East and

:05:27.:05:32.

West? Within reason. Of course, the Russians have been talking for some

:05:33.:05:36.

time about being closely allied. I think to a degree that Russia's view

:05:37.:05:41.

is that Europe is divisive in the region and poses a threat. We are

:05:42.:05:46.

seeing, we were saying early, there is a power struggle between the

:05:47.:05:52.

great powers of Europe and Russia. It was all people power that got

:05:53.:05:57.

Ukraine its independence in the first place. Glasgow. Also on the

:05:58.:06:04.

front page of the Guardian. Glasgow, I know there is a referendum but do

:06:05.:06:09.

not allow yourself with Putin, please! `` do not allow yourself

:06:10.:06:17.

with Putin, please! 17,000 people signing the petition not to carry

:06:18.:06:24.

out the demolition. When I heard about it I thought, really, are they

:06:25.:06:29.

really going to do that? What is wrong with fireworks? ! You don't

:06:30.:06:32.

have to raise buildings to the ground. You could be forgiven for

:06:33.:06:40.

wondering what if it went wrong. What a strange thing to broadcast to

:06:41.:06:44.

millions of people worldwide, some buildings coming down. We are

:06:45.:06:49.

scrapping Glasgow because it needs regeneration! I agree with them

:06:50.:06:52.

saying the reason the 17,000 people signed, it is insensitive, there

:06:53.:06:58.

were people who lived there, who loved that, who grew up there,

:06:59.:07:05.

children, etc. Glasgow is brilliant place and digests, it is fantastic,

:07:06.:07:11.

the best eating places. It is not a question of safety. Dynamite and

:07:12.:07:14.

explosives, that direction is very safe if you have experts. It is the

:07:15.:07:20.

message it sends, you know? They are asylum seekers living on the top

:07:21.:07:25.

floor that... Up of a different building. Is a fair point. The key

:07:26.:07:35.

thing to bear in mind, when 17,000 people feel so strongly that may be

:07:36.:07:39.

blowing up one of the buildings as a celebration is a bad idea, maybe it

:07:40.:07:44.

is time to listen. The organisers say it was about health and safety.

:07:45.:07:50.

It had nothing to do with the outburst from people. There is

:07:51.:07:52.

something quite exciting about seeing a building coming down

:07:53.:07:57.

because in the right context there is something quite thrilling, isn't

:07:58.:08:02.

there? We do plan this because from people power to tax man's power, the

:08:03.:08:07.

front page of the Financial Times. George Osborne moves to extend tax

:08:08.:08:14.

man's powers face scrutiny. George Osborne is on the warpath with

:08:15.:08:19.

people evading and avoiding and hiding their tax liabilities. This

:08:20.:08:25.

is a planned that many are saying perhaps goes a step too far. Again,

:08:26.:08:30.

we need to look at the history to this one. George Osborne and the

:08:31.:08:34.

Conservatives accused rather a lot of looking after the rich, who maybe

:08:35.:08:38.

have some offshore accounts and things. He is looking to prove his

:08:39.:08:43.

credentials as the man who is toughing on getting that tax. The

:08:44.:08:47.

two controversies here that the Treasury Select Committee led by

:08:48.:08:50.

Andrew Tyree want to look at is the notion the taxman if they feel

:08:51.:08:54.

taxman is due and the taxman is always right, dipping into bank

:08:55.:08:59.

accounts and taking it. The other controversy is the idea if you

:09:00.:09:02.

invest money abroad by way of any kind of tax arrangement, even if you

:09:03.:09:06.

didn't think it was wrong and it proves to be, you can get chucked in

:09:07.:09:09.

prison, serious prison sentences whether you knew it was an offence

:09:10.:09:15.

of `` or not, flying in the face of English law. It is not going to

:09:16.:09:19.

happen, it can't, it's too difficult. The idea of being able to

:09:20.:09:24.

dip into people's bank accounts. I like the idea of dipping, like

:09:25.:09:29.

dipping into a water trough. I'll just dip out, that looks about

:09:30.:09:31.

right, I'll take that, it looks about right. Isn't George Osborne in

:09:32.:09:38.

a scenario of dammed if he does and dammed if he doesn't. Labour have

:09:39.:09:43.

criticised he does not do enough to get tax evaders. It is fine to be

:09:44.:09:48.

tough, but stopped doing ridiculous things. It is like a caravan tax,

:09:49.:09:52.

what are you doing sitting in office, the pasty tax, where they

:09:53.:10:00.

were... Wasn't it ridiculous? Whether it was hot food or cold

:10:01.:10:06.

food. David Cameron said I enjoyed grabbing the Cornish pasty shop and

:10:07.:10:10.

it closed down some years before. Everyone is clambering to be seen as

:10:11.:10:15.

people of the people. I will give you a tip, not too many people

:10:16.:10:21.

sitting at home, thinking I'd really like you to be another dip into my

:10:22.:10:29.

account. Rant over. How did the pasty thing come into it? Just

:10:30.:10:35.

because of taxes, on the face of it you can imagine, they eat too many

:10:36.:10:40.

biscuits in these meetings. They get too hot, perhaps. Fantastic. Time to

:10:41.:10:50.

move on. We don't always have the Metro in the newspaper review, but

:10:51.:10:54.

they have a fascinating story on their front page. Degrees pay more,

:10:55.:10:59.

earn less. Graduates leaving a university with a degree, amount of

:11:00.:11:04.

debt and an horrifically low salary. Yes, where you were University

:11:05.:11:12.

graduate? Open University, I need another three modules to get my

:11:13.:11:17.

projected first. A couple of nongraduates here. To break into

:11:18.:11:21.

media and all that. Graduates, their salaries have gone down and down.

:11:22.:11:27.

This is the class, if they get a job, they will be worse off than

:11:28.:11:31.

their parents, these generations. The point is, this is even what you

:11:32.:11:36.

would consider to be stable jobs like doctors and lawyers, for

:11:37.:11:42.

example. They have got 15% and 17% of their wages have gone down and

:11:43.:11:45.

the only ones that have gone up and we had a slight moment when we

:11:46.:11:55.

went, what? , is... Materials technology and librarianship and

:11:56.:11:58.

information management. We went, librarians, really? Surely they

:11:59.:12:03.

don't need a degree to put the Harry Potter book back on the shelf. So

:12:04.:12:09.

many libraries have been closed down. We think it is technology

:12:10.:12:13.

librarianship, the stuff that ends up as icons on your computer. It

:12:14.:12:18.

doesn't take account of the fact legal aid budgets have been slashed,

:12:19.:12:22.

much to the annoyance of people like the former deputy Commons Speaker

:12:23.:12:27.

Nigel Evans, who is losing out on a huge bunch of money and that might

:12:28.:12:31.

be white lawyers are paid lest. There is data protection, stopping

:12:32.:12:35.

hackers. That is a big job. I hope that is what it means. Let's move on

:12:36.:12:41.

to the Daily Telegraph. Before we get to Mo Farah, who features on the

:12:42.:12:44.

front page, we will talk about public servants. Hostile public

:12:45.:12:49.

servants force millions to suffer in silence. This is almost joined up

:12:50.:12:54.

with the story that emerged last week that a lot of elderly people

:12:55.:12:58.

are terrified to complain in NHS hospitals. We will cover the two

:12:59.:13:04.

elements here. Penny will talk about this and the solution discussed

:13:05.:13:07.

here, I was in an NHS hospital with my fiance this week. The stuff on

:13:08.:13:12.

the whole were fantastic. One particular nurse speaking to me like

:13:13.:13:16.

I am a criminal, grabbing hold of our wrists, dragging is about,

:13:17.:13:19.

speaking as if we are some kind of sub humans, but apparently with

:13:20.:13:23.

elderly people as well to a degree and this does not apply to 95% of

:13:24.:13:29.

stuff, but a huge minority think you can speak to patients in any way

:13:30.:13:33.

that you like and you do the NHS and your colleagues a disservice. The

:13:34.:13:39.

solution is apparently... A cultural revolution. That is what the Public

:13:40.:13:42.

Administration select committee says there should be. We should stop

:13:43.:13:48.

doing things and people should stop talking about reviewing, appealing

:13:49.:13:56.

and feedback. Essentially, it is complaints. That will sort it. I

:13:57.:14:02.

want to show the picture of Mo Farah, trailing behind by just four

:14:03.:14:08.

minutes. Just four minutes. Take your hat off to those guys who do

:14:09.:14:14.

the London Marathon in two hours. You too will be back at 11:30pm.

:14:15.:14:18.

Thank you for joining us for the papers. Thank you, do stay with us

:14:19.:14:24.

at 11pm we will have more on the deepening crisis in the UN as the UN

:14:25.:14:28.

called an emergency meeting to discuss the situation. Coming up

:14:29.:14:30.

next, Click.
