League season and news from the Commonwealth Games. Tennis from

:00:00.:00:00.

Monte Carlo and cricket as well. That is all in the sport in 15

:00:00.:00:00.

minutes, after the papers. Hello. Welcome to our look ahead to

:00:00.:00:22.

what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow.

:00:23.:00:29.

Let's have a look at some of tomorrow morning 's front pages. It

:00:30.:00:37.

will stop at the Independent. The picture shows relatives waiting for

:00:38.:00:41.

news of loved ones following the sinking of the ferry in South Korea.

:00:42.:00:45.

Also a breakthrough in cancer treatment. In the Daily Express,

:00:46.:00:50.

photographs of Angelina Jolie, claiming she will give up acting. In

:00:51.:00:54.

the Daily Telegraph, news that Britain should be unashamedly in

:00:55.:01:00.

Angelico about its Christian faith, according to David Cameron. I love

:01:01.:01:04.

you, I think we're going to die was the stark headline for the Metro

:01:05.:01:10.

after the sinking of the ferry in South Korea. The Daily Mail claims

:01:11.:01:19.

one in 16 patients pick up a bug after what `` after staying in what

:01:20.:01:24.

it calls filthy hospitals. I love you, I think we're going to die.

:01:25.:01:29.

That is a horrible story. It does not matter it is on the wrong side

:01:30.:01:36.

`` the other side of the world. Imagine how appalling it must be to

:01:37.:01:41.

be waiting for your loved ones to come back, waiting for your child to

:01:42.:01:45.

come off or not come off. It is just horrendous. There are reports this

:01:46.:01:50.

evening. They were warned not to get on the boat. There was a large lump

:01:51.:01:57.

and talk about bad weather. One of the survivors were saying, the

:01:58.:02:00.

advice was, stay in your seats. Do not move. Whatever the loud thump

:02:01.:02:09.

was, stay still, everybody. That was awful. You have to wonder why the

:02:10.:02:12.

lifeboats were not deployed and people take out to them. You can

:02:13.:02:18.

imagine, if you're in charge of a group of 300 schoolchildren in

:02:19.:02:21.

something like this is happening, the last thing you want is panic.

:02:22.:02:25.

You can imagine the initial order going out. There comes a point when

:02:26.:02:31.

the ship starts doing this and you go, right, everybody we are going to

:02:32.:02:36.

move over here or go into the lifeboats. I do not know how long it

:02:37.:02:41.

has taken for the ship to get into this state. It was very quickly,

:02:42.:02:49.

apparently. In the Independent, hundreds of schoolchildren feared

:02:50.:02:52.

dead in the South Korean ferry disaster. That picture is of

:02:53.:02:58.

relatives waiting for the missing loved ones. That is at the port in

:02:59.:03:06.

South Korea. It has one of the better safety record is on the seas

:03:07.:03:10.

off a lot of Asian countries. This has been a shock to a lot of people.

:03:11.:03:18.

Scientists hail new era in fight against cancer. The most amazing

:03:19.:03:24.

thing is it is the front page of the Independent and not the Daily

:03:25.:03:30.

Express. It is quite an interesting study. Cancer research UK is

:03:31.:03:37.

unveiling a new study they are about to undertake to see if they can

:03:38.:03:44.

modify medicines or cancer treatments with particular genetic

:03:45.:03:47.

make`up. If you have itchy and yourselves eyeing a set of

:03:48.:03:51.

arrangement, they will find a treatment which is individually

:03:52.:03:54.

tailored to you. The idea is this will be a huge breakthrough. At the

:03:55.:03:59.

moment, you get say breast cancer or lung cancer and you have one blunt

:04:00.:04:05.

tool, which is basically kill the cells. Either radiating them to

:04:06.:04:08.

death or bombarding us with chemicals, just to kill everything.

:04:09.:04:13.

They killed as many goods are sometimes as it does bad cells. This

:04:14.:04:23.

seems to be a much more tailors and intelligent way of dealing with it.

:04:24.:04:25.

Cancer research has been talking for a long time about what genetics can

:04:26.:04:29.

bring to this whole field. It is interesting. When we did map the

:04:30.:04:33.

gene known, which was quite a while ago. There was a feeling we would be

:04:34.:04:38.

so far down the road in dealing with lots of cancers and a whole myriad

:04:39.:04:43.

of health issues. There has been progress but it has not been as fast

:04:44.:04:49.

as a lotta people might have. There have been cancer breakthroughs for

:04:50.:04:54.

decades now. We have been trying for my entire lifetime to try to find a

:04:55.:05:06.

cure. Some rates have improved. Things have not improved for

:05:07.:05:10.

everybody in every situation. The way that Kieren has described some

:05:11.:05:14.

people die with lots of chemicals in their system, killing off almost

:05:15.:05:18.

every cell in their body, that still happens. A lot of these big

:05:19.:05:22.

breakthroughs to not trickle down to people and they are very expensive.

:05:23.:05:27.

They are not automatically available in the NHS or approved for funding.

:05:28.:05:32.

We have done an awful lot with cancer over the years. That is

:05:33.:05:38.

great. It affects lots of people. The attention that cancer gets,

:05:39.:05:41.

while it is not necessarily wrong to give it that attention, it does mean

:05:42.:05:44.

we will not give attention to other diseases which are more difficult

:05:45.:05:53.

and harder. I have epilepsy and that affects one in ten people who have

:05:54.:05:58.

this easier at least once in their life. It does not get the attention

:05:59.:06:03.

and massive fundraising campaigns. There are many diseases which need

:06:04.:06:08.

this help. This new tailor`made treatment, they will be starting

:06:09.:06:14.

trials, which is encouraging. They are going to be starting trials. We

:06:15.:06:21.

would like to say, there are no results for this. In the Daily

:06:22.:06:27.

Telegraph, apparently David Cameron does believe in God, unlike Mr

:06:28.:06:33.

Blair. He puts God back into politics and says Britain should be

:06:34.:06:38.

unashamedly evangelical. You are shaking your head. You are huffing

:06:39.:06:44.

and puffing. Nothing wrong with that whatsoever, if it is true. What he

:06:45.:06:49.

brings to politics is more a touch of Herod. It says in the Bible,

:06:50.:06:57.

suffer little children. Jesus Christ said that, apparently. Child poverty

:06:58.:07:04.

is predicted to rise by 600,000. There are starving children. There

:07:05.:07:07.

are 3.5 million children in this country and poverty. Children are

:07:08.:07:11.

suffering quite a lot. D bread makers. We could go on about David

:07:12.:07:16.

Cameron and the price of bread. We could go on about the big society

:07:17.:07:22.

and how food banks are growing to beat the need. Society is not doing

:07:23.:07:29.

it for itself. `` feed the need. He has been criticised heavily by

:07:30.:07:33.

bishops in the Church of England. Many have signed a letter which has

:07:34.:07:39.

humiliated him. They have said some of your policies causing massive

:07:40.:07:43.

harm. This is exactly the kind of thing that Jesus had said we should

:07:44.:07:48.

not be doing. He has responded with this letter in the Church Times.

:07:49.:07:56.

There are those of a firm Christian faith who do feel they are

:07:57.:07:59.

marginalised. The established church is the Church of England. It is a

:08:00.:08:06.

Christian country. There are people who feel like that. Wrapped up into

:08:07.:08:11.

that, I suspect, is a lack of comfort. Maybe that is the best

:08:12.:08:15.

expression with how the country is changing in general. It may be to do

:08:16.:08:21.

with race as well. It may be to do with just, communities are

:08:22.:08:25.

changing. People are moving out much more freely than they ever did. Lots

:08:26.:08:29.

of places have, for example, lost them in way of life. Places in the

:08:30.:08:35.

North particularly where industry is dying. Lots of things have happened

:08:36.:08:42.

since the 50s and 60s. Faith gets lumped into that. It is one of those

:08:43.:08:47.

things. I actually think that most British Christians, most I know, do

:08:48.:08:52.

not go around talking about it very much. We are not have any

:08:53.:08:58.

evangelical lot. What is he playing at? Is it what Susie is saying? He

:08:59.:09:07.

is overturning centuries of constitutional progress. We have a

:09:08.:09:11.

head of state who is also the Church of England. Bishops are still in the

:09:12.:09:18.

House of Lords but, fundamentally, canon law is no longer the law of

:09:19.:09:23.

the land. The church has been separated from the legislature. He

:09:24.:09:27.

is trying to get it back together. Is there the feeling in number ten

:09:28.:09:31.

that the bishops, who have been critical of a number of the policies

:09:32.:09:36.

of the Coalition Government, that blunt criticism is hitting home? It

:09:37.:09:42.

is hitting home with Christian voters and he is trying to appeal to

:09:43.:09:47.

them. It will not appeal to atheists. It may appeal to people of

:09:48.:09:52.

other faiths who appreciate the fact the Prime Minister is a man of faith

:09:53.:10:00.

himself. Do they vote? Number ten is worried they will vote UKIP. You

:10:01.:10:07.

have a wing of the Church who is annoyed at David Cameron over gay

:10:08.:10:12.

marriage and a much more liberal wing of the Church which is more

:10:13.:10:18.

represented at the top levels which is more represented at the top level

:10:19.:10:21.

switches irritated at David Cameron for increasing poverty and all the

:10:22.:10:26.

things that Suzy talks about. The Anglican Church used to be called

:10:27.:10:31.

the Tory Party at prayer. It used to be their institution. It is no

:10:32.:10:37.

longer new Archbishop of Canterbury. He was in business.

:10:38.:10:41.

Number ten probably thought he would be more on our side. That has proved

:10:42.:10:47.

not to be the case. The bishops are not on the side of David Cameron. I

:10:48.:10:54.

think he is doing the opposite of what his principles would lead him

:10:55.:10:59.

to do. This is quite a blatant attempt to try to win but whatever

:11:00.:11:03.

section of the Christian vote he thinks he has. He has changed quite

:11:04.:11:10.

a lot. He is to say, my faith is like reception for Magic FM in the

:11:11.:11:16.

Chilterns, it comes in and out. This is either a big change or, as Suzy

:11:17.:11:25.

says, it is politics. I would suspect he would disagree with every

:11:26.:11:28.

single word you have said. But you do not give a monkeys.

:11:29.:11:37.

An interesting story this, a device for pensioners on how long they

:11:38.:11:42.

live. In the budget, a big announcement that George Osborne

:11:43.:11:47.

made if he would free up people to use up their pension pots when they

:11:48.:11:51.

retire and you choose what to do with it. You put it into a private

:11:52.:11:57.

investment vehicle, into a bank account or you buy a Lamborghini. A

:11:58.:12:04.

yellow one! The thing is people always underestimate how long they

:12:05.:12:09.

will live for. You think if you live for ten 15 years, you put it away

:12:10.:12:14.

for that long. If you live for 20 or 25 years, you run out of money and

:12:15.:12:19.

the state will have to pay. This is the pensions minister saying, we

:12:20.:12:23.

will try to give you a date for when you will die. Can you imagine? If

:12:24.:12:30.

you drill down into this story it is also an amount of rot. He cannot

:12:31.:12:34.

possibly tell us when we are going to die. Firstly, this is just an

:12:35.:12:40.

idea. When the pensions change was announced in the budget, they made

:12:41.:12:44.

such a fudge of trying to explain to people, go and buy a Lamborghini, we

:12:45.:12:48.

don't mind and then people said, please don't say that, it is

:12:49.:12:53.

stupid. The idea is you go and see your doctor at a certain point and

:12:54.:12:57.

your doctor will not give you a health screen saying you will live

:12:58.:13:01.

to 79. What will happen is there will be a chart which says for

:13:02.:13:10.

people in your area the life expectancy is this. That is very

:13:11.:13:13.

useful and it is only if you ask for it! If you are pensioner who thinks

:13:14.:13:17.

you will go and spend it all you will not ask the doctor for advice.

:13:18.:13:21.

And if you plan sensibly with annuities, you will get that advice

:13:22.:13:27.

presumably when you plan your financial future, it is

:13:28.:13:30.

meaningless. Codswallop, Mr Telegraph!

:13:31.:13:39.

Let's go to this story. It does not say anywhere that if you get a bonus

:13:40.:13:44.

because that is the key, isn't it? If you do not get a bonus wages are

:13:45.:13:51.

not rising at the same level. On average... Is your pay rising? My

:13:52.:14:03.

pay is rising. Is your pay rising? It is already ceiling high! My pay

:14:04.:14:09.

has not risen in line with inflation for long time but people's pay is

:14:10.:14:15.

starting to pick up. It is not rising as quickly as inflation if

:14:16.:14:20.

you strip out bonuses. And certainly not the public sector. Where is the

:14:21.:14:31.

good news? It is a trend. This is really problematic for Labour. Good

:14:32.:14:35.

for the government. Kieron and Susie, you will be back in an

:14:36.:14:40.

hour's time, thank you for that. Stay with us here on BC news, we

:14:41.:14:48.

will have more on the dreadful disaster off the coast of South

:14:49.:14:53.

Korea `` stay with us on ABC News. Rescuers are using searchlights to

:14:54.:14:59.

illuminate the ship. 300 people, many of them children are missing.

:15:00.:15:04.

Now time for Sportsday. Good evening, I'm Olly Foster.

:15:05.:15:24.

City snatch a point against struggling Sunderland but their

:15:25.:15:29.

title hopes are intact is. Everton's Champions League ambitions

:15:30.:15:32.

have been dented by defeat at home to Crystal

:15:33.:15:33.
