Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be

:00:14.:00:19.

bringing us tomorrow. With me are James Rampton of the Independent,

:00:20.:00:21.

and the broadcaster and journalist, Lynn Faulds Wood. Tomorrow's front

:00:22.:00:30.

pages... The Telegraph highlights an NHS report which says at least a

:00:31.:00:33.

thousand patients are dying needlessly each month from acute

:00:34.:00:35.

kidney injury, a treatable condition which can be avoided if people are

:00:36.:00:45.

kept hydrated. The Guardian says Gordon Brown will intervene in the

:00:46.:00:49.

Scottish referendum debate for the better together campaign with a

:00:50.:00:52.

claim that Scottish pensioners will be better off if Scotland stayed

:00:53.:00:56.

within the UK. The headline in the Metro, farewell, Peaches. The

:00:57.:01:02.

funeral of Peaches Geldof took place today. The Daily Mail warns off the

:01:03.:01:09.

mortgage inquisition, saying prospective home`buyers will be full

:01:10.:01:13.

to answer very detailed questions about every aspect of their finances

:01:14.:01:21.

and spending. In the Son, there are also pictures of the funeral of

:01:22.:01:26.

Peaches Geldof. Also speculation that David Moyes is on the verge of

:01:27.:01:31.

being fired. The financial Times close legislation is due to be

:01:32.:01:35.

introduced which will allow energy companies greater freedom to fracked

:01:36.:01:40.

shale gas. Let's begin with the papers. Let's go to the Daily

:01:41.:01:48.

Telegraph. I must say, we have a change from seeing the Duke and

:01:49.:01:51.

Duchess of Cambridge on the front page. It is this Mr Morley 's. We're

:01:52.:02:02.

all a bit Republican. `` it is this David Moyes. There is a picture. He

:02:03.:02:09.

does look awful. The game is up, they say. Well, he is still

:02:10.:02:15.

Scottish! He could not have made worse fist it. His biggest crime,

:02:16.:02:20.

Jim Wright who wrote the biography of the club, I think, put things on

:02:21.:02:26.

it. His biggest crime is not turning down the job. How do you follow

:02:27.:02:32.

somebody like Sir Alex Ferguson? He must have had his head turned.

:02:33.:02:36.

Strong leaders always get a vacuum afterwards. He should have waited

:02:37.:02:41.

until somebody else did it terribly badly and then taken the job. You

:02:42.:02:47.

could have written the script, couldn't you? Jim is an excellent

:02:48.:02:53.

sport reporter. The writing was on the wall for him a few weeks ago.

:02:54.:03:00.

There was a banger having `` a banner hanging in Old Trafford

:03:01.:03:06.

calling him, the chosen one. There was a private plane with a banner

:03:07.:03:12.

behind it saying, the wrong one. When the fans turn against you in

:03:13.:03:17.

such spectacular way, I think you are taste. He has aged ten years in

:03:18.:03:23.

the last nine months. It is written on his face. It is a picture of

:03:24.:03:29.

failure. I hear desperately sorry for him. Manchester United have made

:03:30.:03:38.

terrible mistakes. He had a six`year contract. They are out of the

:03:39.:03:46.

champions league. This is ?30 million worth. This is huge business

:03:47.:03:53.

which has gone down the Swanee. It is a massive business. What is the

:03:54.:03:58.

essence of the problem? It is all well and good to say, there is Sir

:03:59.:04:04.

Alex Ferguson sitting in the crowd but something has gone wrong with

:04:05.:04:07.

the way Manchester United play football. Fire Ahe has lost the

:04:08.:04:16.

dressing room. Robin van Persie has criticised the style of manager.

:04:17.:04:21.

Nemanja Vidic is leading, that is telling itself of the have been

:04:22.:04:23.

rumblings going on that dressing room has not really swung behind

:04:24.:04:27.

him. If you do not have the dressing room, football is, at that level, a

:04:28.:04:34.

great deal is played in the head. These players won the championship

:04:35.:04:39.

easily last year and they are now in seventh position. They are still

:04:40.:04:42.

good players but they are not responding to this style of

:04:43.:04:47.

leadership. They were all scared of Alex Ferguson and they were scared

:04:48.:04:51.

to play badly. I am not scared to play badly for him and they

:04:52.:04:54.

gradually lost more and more respect. The flying teacups

:04:55.:05:01.

concentrated the mind. He was very angry and he gave them the hairdryer

:05:02.:05:07.

treatment. Teacups would fly but, goodness me, he got results. Let's

:05:08.:05:15.

go on to the same stories on almost every front page, in the Daily Mail

:05:16.:05:20.

and the money he might get, ?10 million. It does seem quite

:05:21.:05:27.

extraordinary. He is not resigning. He will wait until he is sacked and

:05:28.:05:34.

then given the money. You cannot buy back your reputation. I have a

:05:35.:05:37.

feeling this is such a horrible fall from grace he will never recover

:05:38.:05:46.

from it in his own head. Just very quickly, who might succeed? There

:05:47.:05:52.

was talk last summer that they want Jose Mourinho before he went to

:05:53.:05:57.

Chelsea. The best manager in Europe with Pep Guardiola. He is locked

:05:58.:06:01.

into a huge contract. The real problem is that you need a

:06:02.:06:06.

replacement who is to most to be going to be better. There are not

:06:07.:06:10.

that many good managers staying with good clubs. They do not come on the

:06:11.:06:18.

market that offer. The Twitter money seems to be on a German manager.

:06:19.:06:29.

Let's go back to the Daily Telegraph story. Poor care kills 1000 hospital

:06:30.:06:39.

patients a month. I have a horrible feeling it killed my dad. When you

:06:40.:06:44.

go in for an operation and they are talking here about heart operations

:06:45.:06:48.

and so on, you have to be kept hydrated. The kidneys get starved of

:06:49.:06:53.

blood. That is apparently not happening with people with diabetes.

:06:54.:07:00.

This is a proper study by the NHS improving quality organisation,

:07:01.:07:04.

whatever that is. It is saying this could be up to eight times worse

:07:05.:07:09.

than MRSA. It could be killing, I think it was 1000 people a month.

:07:10.:07:14.

I'd back roads that is the figure here. English hospitals are five

:07:15.:07:20.

times worse at this. It is more prevalent in English hospitals than

:07:21.:07:23.

all the other countries they have compared it with. It is a terrible

:07:24.:07:28.

story. Any clue as to why it happens? With kidneys, it is about

:07:29.:07:38.

drinking water, taking water. The potential scandal is it is eminently

:07:39.:07:42.

avoidable, this problem. Doctors and nurses are extremely busy and rushed

:07:43.:07:47.

off their feet. If you keep an eye on hydration levels, they are

:07:48.:07:51.

suggesting 40,000 people a year may be dying of this condition. That is

:07:52.:07:55.

eight times more than are being killed by superbugs. It is costing

:07:56.:08:03.

the NHS ?1 million a year. This is fixable. Do something about it and

:08:04.:08:09.

you could save all these lies. The fingers pointed in this Daily

:08:10.:08:14.

Telegraph article, nurses are not keeping an eye on water. They are

:08:15.:08:19.

not checking water levels and electrolytes and so on and also

:08:20.:08:24.

doctors are not adequately checking methods. Having had a friend in

:08:25.:08:31.

hospital whose partner mercifully checked these each time, there were

:08:32.:08:35.

quite often wrong. I have two sisters who are nurses and they are

:08:36.:08:41.

great nurses. A lot of the nursing I have seen has been terrible. I spent

:08:42.:08:45.

a lot of time in hospitals and the care is very patchy. I had to go

:08:46.:08:49.

into a nursing meeting and tell them all who I was. I used to present a

:08:50.:08:54.

watchdog and I am appalled by the way you are caring for my friend.

:08:55.:08:59.

That is terrible in British hospitals. It is especially the

:09:00.:09:06.

elderly, it says in here. Diabetes, it tends to be people who are older

:09:07.:09:11.

and these heart operations. They tend to be older. The good news is

:09:12.:09:16.

the deaths are avoidable. If they make an issue, it is on the front

:09:17.:09:21.

page of the Daily Telegraph. In the Guardian, Gordon Brown does not have

:09:22.:09:26.

a lot to say these days. Here he is popping up. Tomorrow he will make a

:09:27.:09:34.

speech. You are a resident Scott, off you go. I met Gordon. When you

:09:35.:09:41.

meet him, he is charming and charismatic. What you should

:09:42.:09:46.

understand if he has terrible character flaws. Whatever he tells

:09:47.:09:50.

people to do, they will probably want to do the opposite. In the

:09:51.:09:55.

Scandinavian countries, if you tell them something is good for their

:09:56.:09:58.

health, they are homogenous, they will all do it. Utah the British

:09:59.:10:04.

what to do, we are individualistic and will say, I will do what I damn

:10:05.:10:10.

well like. In Scotland, Cameron has been telling the Scots they are

:10:11.:10:14.

better together and do not vote for independence. So, they are saying, I

:10:15.:10:20.

think I will actually. He is saying that if you stay within the UK, the

:10:21.:10:26.

pensions prospects for Scottish people be much more favourable. The

:10:27.:10:31.

pot they can draw from in London will be much more substantial and

:10:32.:10:35.

they will be Karen Teed for a much longer period. He has the documents

:10:36.:10:41.

which seem to back that up. I agree with Lynn. The difference between

:10:42.:10:45.

the two campaigns now has shrunk to three points. It was 20 points three

:10:46.:10:51.

months ago. David Cameron went and held a cabinet in Aberdeen. I have a

:10:52.:10:56.

Scottish friend who said to me, that is the moment I decided to vote

:10:57.:11:00.

yes. The English By Minister is coming here and holding the Cabinet

:11:01.:11:04.

in our country and telling us what to do. The independent strain is

:11:05.:11:09.

saying, I do not want them to do that, I will do the opposite. There

:11:10.:11:16.

have been arguments there is not a really big beast like Alex Salmond

:11:17.:11:21.

on the yes campaign. That is what the other side have lacked. Alistair

:11:22.:11:25.

Darling has been doing a good, solid job. The reason that Gordon Brown

:11:26.:11:30.

has not cropped up before is because the two of them did not get on but

:11:31.:11:35.

now, finally, Gordon Brown is burying the hatchet. He is more

:11:36.:11:41.

popular in Scotland than down south. However, I do think you have to

:11:42.:11:48.

understand the British psyche and work with us as individualistic

:11:49.:11:53.

people. Do not tell us what to do, give us choices. I would say nothing

:11:54.:11:58.

at all until September and hope the SNP shoots itself in the foot. The

:11:59.:12:02.

more people who are perceived as from Westminster a comment, the more

:12:03.:12:05.

that will either the Scottish and the more likely they are to vote

:12:06.:12:12.

yes. Alex Salmond is very clever. He is a very clever politician. Never

:12:13.:12:18.

underestimate him. Is sad day with the Peaches Geldof funeral. The

:12:19.:12:24.

Metro has the Coffin. It is decorated with pictures of

:12:25.:12:29.

children, pets and so on. A sad old business altogether. I was doing

:12:30.:12:36.

Watchdog. There were only four channel so I was pretty famous then.

:12:37.:12:44.

You still are. I decided to keep back away as much as possible from

:12:45.:12:48.

my son because it is really difficult for the children are

:12:49.:12:57.

people who, I am minorly famous but it is very difficult. I think this

:12:58.:13:03.

poor girl has probably had a tragic life. She did yo`yo dieting, she was

:13:04.:13:09.

fat and then she was very slim. I do not think the family has helped by

:13:10.:13:15.

this picture on the Coffin. It is rather mocking. Bob should keep

:13:16.:13:20.

everything as low`key as possible. We will not know for weeks how she

:13:21.:13:26.

died. We may never know. It is completely tragic and for those

:13:27.:13:32.

children as well. I just think that this is again the cult of celebrity

:13:33.:13:37.

and wanting and wanting to be noticed. The more we can let our

:13:38.:13:42.

children, if we have some fame, grow up without that overshadowing them,

:13:43.:13:49.

the better. I agree, fame is the mask that eats

:13:50.:13:53.

the face. It becomes your personality, the way that the world

:13:54.:13:56.

knows you. We don't know what happened in this case. In general,

:13:57.:14:01.

people who desire celebrity at all costs, you know, it can have very

:14:02.:14:07.

tragic effects. Quickly back to the Daily Mail and their main story, the

:14:08.:14:12.

mortgage inquisition. This is fascinating. We were talking off

:14:13.:14:16.

camera about the bubble that's taking place in the housing market

:14:17.:14:21.

in London at the moment. It's going off the scale. This is quite an

:14:22.:14:25.

interesting new move as a reaction to the crash in 2008. Mortgage

:14:26.:14:28.

lenders are going to be more strict now about who they lend to. They're

:14:29.:14:31.

going to ask about how much you spend on food, what you spend on

:14:32.:14:35.

childcare, even how much you spend at the gym in order to be absolutely

:14:36.:14:40.

certain people are getting mortgages and are responsible with their

:14:41.:14:43.

money. I don't think that's a bad thing, if it helps to cool down the

:14:44.:14:47.

housing market it might have a positive effect. Interest rates can

:14:48.:14:51.

only go one way in the future, going up and a lot of people will get

:14:52.:14:54.

trapped. They're looking like they're going up. It looks like

:14:55.:14:58.

they're going to stop interest`only mortgages. I don't know much about

:14:59.:15:05.

it, it feels like a good thing. You only pay interest for ages and the

:15:06.:15:10.

capital at the end. Yes and they've teeser ones, low at the beginning

:15:11.:15:14.

and you pay more later on and so on. The very word teaser in relation to

:15:15.:15:18.

buying a house, which is the biggest thing you ever do. Indeed. We have

:15:19.:15:25.

to leave it there for the moment. Thank you very much indeed for the

:15:26.:15:29.

moment. Stay with us here on BBC News. At 11.00pm, President

:15:30.:15:35.

Presidential elections will be taking place in Syria, in spite of

:15:36.:15:40.

Jopp going fighting in the country `` in spite of ongoing fighting in

:15:41.:15:46.

the country. The UN condemns the decision. Up next it's Sportsday.

:15:47.:15:54.

Hello and welcome to Sportsday. I'm James Pearce. Our headlines tonight:

:15:55.:16:01.

Is Moyes being moved on? Manchester United refuse to comment on

:16:02.:16:03.

speculation that their manager is about to be sacked.

:16:04.:16:08.

Manchester City beat
