South Korea's Prime Minister resigns after criticism of his government is

:00:00.:00:00.

handling over the ferry tragedy. More than 300 people are thought to

:00:00.:00:00.

have died when the ferry sank earlier in the month. Hello and

:00:00.:00:17.

welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us

:00:18.:00:23.

tomorrow. With me is Lucy Cavendish, who is a Sunday Telegraph columnist,

:00:24.:00:27.

and Tom Bergin from Reuters. That makes him a journalist to!

:00:28.:00:33.

Tomorrow's front pages. Starting with the independent leading new

:00:34.:00:36.

rules to drive the long`term unemployed and to work, it says they

:00:37.:00:40.

will be forced to attend job centres every day. The Financial Times says

:00:41.:00:44.

talks between China and the US on carbon dioxide emissions appear to

:00:45.:00:47.

be the most promising development in nearly 20 years of negotiations. The

:00:48.:00:52.

mattress is a triple killer has been awarded ?800 in compensation after

:00:53.:00:55.

prison guards broke his nose or purpose. `` the metro says. A report

:00:56.:01:04.

into high taxes and redtape stifles entrepreneurs in Britain in the

:01:05.:01:07.

Times. The Guardian says a leading doctor has said whether

:01:08.:01:14.

understaffing has contributed to high deaths in babies. This is the

:01:15.:01:21.

picture of the British barrister who the paper says is engaged to George

:01:22.:01:34.

Clooney. And hayfever sufferers are in for a bad summer. Let's start

:01:35.:01:37.

with the daily Telegraph carrying the story of the elite servicemen

:01:38.:01:43.

who died in the Afghan helicopter disaster. Four of those men are

:01:44.:01:49.

pictured on the front page. Tributes have been paid this evening from the

:01:50.:01:55.

commanding officers. They sounded like they all had promising careers

:01:56.:02:01.

ahead of them. They are described as elite servicemen, they appear...

:02:02.:02:07.

There has not been a confirmation of who they were attached to, as often

:02:08.:02:13.

is the case, but they were all special forces people. Very highly

:02:14.:02:17.

regarded, it is difficult to get into those units. They seem

:02:18.:02:22.

incredibly accomplished. Some have done multiple tours in Afghanistan.

:02:23.:02:31.

It is a very sad story. They have spoken of mechanical failure, it

:02:32.:02:35.

reinforces that war zones are incredibly dangerous even when

:02:36.:02:38.

people are not in fighting. This is the cost of having a military

:02:39.:02:41.

presence anywhere in the world. In addition to those tributes, we have

:02:42.:02:45.

had heartbreaking tributes paid by their families. They have lost these

:02:46.:02:51.

men so close to the presence of international troops. It is

:02:52.:02:54.

heartbreaking, the thought of them going off in the first place must be

:02:55.:03:00.

so difficult, it must make their friends and families feel very

:03:01.:03:05.

frightened. And so close to thinking you were going to get this person

:03:06.:03:09.

that you love back. When you look at the photographs, it is interesting

:03:10.:03:12.

that the daily Telegraph is the only newspaper with it. It is

:03:13.:03:17.

heart`wrenching to see it, unbelievable, their loved ones could

:03:18.:03:23.

be thinking they are going to walk through the door, it looks like it

:03:24.:03:28.

is an accident. It could bring into question what has happened, whether

:03:29.:03:31.

it was faulty equipment, which has dogged this whole situation in

:03:32.:03:35.

Afghanistan, with questions over Kate and not having the right

:03:36.:03:38.

equipment. Putting people in jeopardy. ``kit. These have had a

:03:39.:03:50.

fantastic service record? There have been a number of helicopters with

:03:51.:03:54.

problems, like generics, there have been a number of accidents.

:03:55.:04:02.

``Chinooks. There has been mechanical failure suspected as a

:04:03.:04:08.

problem. When you have equipment that is perfectly good, but

:04:09.:04:13.

sometimes it can fail in particular circumstances. The Times has Labour

:04:14.:04:18.

's corporate head hard by UKIP. The party is now is to middle`class.

:04:19.:04:27.

They have dealt with the Tory voters, swept them up, and are now

:04:28.:04:31.

going to focus on getting Labour voters to come with us. It sounds

:04:32.:04:35.

like they could be succeeding? Are they? I don't know, I think it is

:04:36.:04:44.

all froth. There is a real and genuine concern about what is going

:04:45.:04:51.

on here, with UKIP. They do not have any MPs, at the moment they do not

:04:52.:04:54.

have an agenda they are working from. They have people who say

:04:55.:04:59.

things like Lenny Henry should live in a black country. They are doing a

:05:00.:05:04.

great job of making people not particularly like them. There is the

:05:05.:05:10.

idea that Labour are drifting towards the middle classes, as if

:05:11.:05:14.

the people who are in that party are not middle`class. Ed Miliband, and

:05:15.:05:18.

the people around him, are in what I would call champagne socialists, in

:05:19.:05:22.

the past. They must find a way of getting the working classes back. I

:05:23.:05:28.

do not know what the implication is, it is going somewhere that could

:05:29.:05:33.

be potentially nasty. They are looking at immigration and welfare.

:05:34.:05:39.

I can see what the underlying message is. Their prospects are

:05:40.:05:43.

looking quite good for UKIP in the European elections which happened

:05:44.:05:47.

next month? Certainly, that will be a secondary concern to the Labour

:05:48.:05:50.

leadership, they will be focused on the general election. Coming from

:05:51.:05:59.

here, this is reflective of what has been said about the party and Ed

:06:00.:06:02.

Miliband being too intellectual. On one hand, it is intuitive, what we

:06:03.:06:08.

are seeing here today. If you think about it, we are not seeing any

:06:09.:06:12.

pollen behind these views. When it comes down to it, is it a

:06:13.:06:21.

constituency affair? ``polling. Are these marginal seats going to be

:06:22.:06:25.

lost to Labour? Realistically, will Labour lose out to the Lib Dems or

:06:26.:06:29.

the Conservatives in some marginal constituencies because of the rise

:06:30.:06:33.

of UKIP? I do not know if that has been proven. The Labour Party is

:06:34.:06:36.

liberal and progressive, it says here, as if that is a bad thing.

:06:37.:06:42.

What is the suggestion? They should become not liberal and retrograde

:06:43.:06:46.

looking? I do not know if that is helpful. Is the concern about UKIP,

:06:47.:06:52.

is that they will upset the vote in some way? There are those old

:06:53.:06:58.

certainties, in some constituencies, but are not there any more? From

:06:59.:07:03.

neighbours perspective, they could always, I guess, attract a certain

:07:04.:07:08.

person, particularly activists, perhaps, they could come out for

:07:09.:07:15.

Labour. It could hurt them. They talk about immigration, for example,

:07:16.:07:19.

that might be an issue that UKIP feels freer to talk about than

:07:20.:07:23.

Labour. It attracts certain people. Is it going to cost them seats? I

:07:24.:07:26.

don't think so. It is a certain idea, it fits with previous

:07:27.:07:35.

comments, said by Hazel blears and others, that they read themselves to

:07:36.:07:43.

attack UKIP ``Blears. Let's go back to the Telegraph. Money getting you

:07:44.:07:49.

down? The doctor can see you now. GPs should offer financial advice

:07:50.:07:53.

from surgeries, because the stress of debt and money worries damage

:07:54.:07:59.

patients well`being. That is certainly probably true. But do GPs

:08:00.:08:03.

have time to do this? And the capabilities? My heart goes out to

:08:04.:08:07.

them. Of course it is true, debt gets everyone down. I imagine no

:08:08.:08:11.

more so than ever. You see people suffering tremendous amounts of

:08:12.:08:18.

stress. `` I imagine now. Clinics have been set up in GPs clinics

:08:19.:08:26.

which have helped. The idea that they can focus on the fact that the

:08:27.:08:35.

reason someone is ill or exhibiting symptoms for example, panic attacks,

:08:36.:08:38.

is because they are in a financial mess. Most people feel it is panic

:08:39.:08:41.

making, and they are given advice to get help. I do not think they should

:08:42.:08:44.

be taking in their current account statements! At that point, they will

:08:45.:08:49.

put their hands in the air and close down completely. In the five minutes

:08:50.:08:53.

you had to see them! I love the idea. I love the idea of the GP

:08:54.:08:57.

telling me I've spent too much on baked beans, that would be great!

:08:58.:09:02.

The rise of payday lenders show people do not make the best

:09:03.:09:08.

financial choices. Why would the GP know better than us? There is room

:09:09.:09:13.

for financial education. If it is in conjunction with the Citizens'

:09:14.:09:16.

Advice Bureau, it makes sense. I do not know that doctors have time to

:09:17.:09:24.

do this. There are micro and macro economics as part of their medical

:09:25.:09:34.

degree! `` they can study. This is the story of a triple killer, he has

:09:35.:09:43.

won ?815 compensation in prison, because guards broke his nasal hair

:09:44.:09:47.

clippers, and they didn't apologise. There is also something

:09:48.:09:51.

to do with his cranberry juice going missing. Compensation for someone

:09:52.:09:58.

who has killed three times? Of course that is going to make people

:09:59.:10:02.

furious. These stories come up regularly. A prompt a lot of

:10:03.:10:07.

outrage. It is difficult to see how you don't get into these situations,

:10:08.:10:13.

given the rules, though, if someone loses their equipment. `` they

:10:14.:10:18.

prompt a lot of outrage. It means that people we don't like will

:10:19.:10:25.

benefit from these rules. It does not mean we should change the rules,

:10:26.:10:29.

necessarily, just in response. It has happened before, where people

:10:30.:10:33.

have done bad things have got compensation for various reasons.

:10:34.:10:36.

Could it be suspended? If you go to prison, you lose your rights to that

:10:37.:10:43.

sort of thing? It is difficult, nose hair clippers, of course people will

:10:44.:10:46.

be cross about that. No one will think that is a good thing. It is

:10:47.:10:51.

infuriating and irritating. You could say, look, if they get broken,

:10:52.:10:57.

you get a pay`out for it. They focus on the nose clippers. Most of it was

:10:58.:11:03.

because the prison didn't apologise for the fact that his equipment had

:11:04.:11:06.

been lost. There are some questions about the process here. Perhaps.

:11:07.:11:12.

Basically, they do not think it is a good thing! That is what you are

:11:13.:11:17.

saying! Rules are rules, you can't do anything about it. Let's have a

:11:18.:11:21.

look at this paper, the jobless are told to sign on every day or lose

:11:22.:11:25.

their benefits. These are people, the long`term unemployed, they have

:11:26.:11:28.

to go to the job centre every day, not once every couple of weeks. The

:11:29.:11:34.

way around this is that they sign up for voluntary work? Absolutely, it

:11:35.:11:37.

does not sound like voluntary work, of course, if the option is is that

:11:38.:11:42.

you will lose your income and receipts. It is an interesting one.

:11:43.:11:51.

It is clearly putting a certain label or certain hint around, almost

:11:52.:11:55.

criminalising it. It is like the walk of shame. On the same side, we

:11:56.:12:03.

are not seeing on the tax evasion sighed the same kind of action.

:12:04.:12:06.

That, potentially, raises the question as to whether there are

:12:07.:12:11.

double standards here. `` tax evasion seeing. With Swiss bank

:12:12.:12:18.

accounts, this has not lead to prosecution. It is interesting, to

:12:19.:12:23.

see how this could end up looking. Wouldn't it make it certain though,

:12:24.:12:25.

that if someone is claiming benefits, but is secretly working,

:12:26.:12:31.

they cannot do that? Yes, you would have to go there every single day

:12:32.:12:36.

on. It is difficult. There is something about the feckless people

:12:37.:12:42.

who are not working those jobs available. `` and sign on. Your

:12:43.:12:52.

motivation would go out the window. You probably feel unemployable. The

:12:53.:12:57.

other thing is that some employers are not making it very easy. There

:12:58.:13:03.

is this whole thing about not paying for travel expenses or certain

:13:04.:13:06.

amounts of time, it is a difficult balance to give up your benefits and

:13:07.:13:10.

get a job, if your potential employer is not doing what they

:13:11.:13:14.

should be. I have had people who have had that experience, but I will

:13:15.:13:19.

not name the company. It is scary, none of us are far away from being

:13:20.:13:22.

destitute. Let's have a look at the express, George Clooney is quite far

:13:23.:13:27.

away from being destitute! Has this beauty finally tamed George Clooney?

:13:28.:13:35.

You can hear the sound of hearts breaking across the world. Tom, you

:13:36.:13:40.

have a lot to say about this? ! And asked who he was! I knew who he

:13:41.:13:49.

was. She is a legal eagle, a British Lebanese woman, clever and

:13:50.:13:51.

beautiful, she went to Oxford University. She tamed the man every

:13:52.:14:00.

woman wanted to tame. He had a bet that he would not get married before

:14:01.:14:12.

the age of 50 and he is now 52. This is interesting news. Not to me. As a

:14:13.:14:19.

financial journalist, maybe this tells me that he is selling at the

:14:20.:14:26.

top of the market. Sexiest man in the world for ten or 20 years. He

:14:27.:14:31.

has realised he is at his peak. We will all have to lose interest in

:14:32.:14:37.

him now because he is not single and he is married to someone no one

:14:38.:14:44.

could compete with. She is only 36. But who will replace him as the

:14:45.:14:49.

world's most eligible bachelor? I have no idea. Something to think

:14:50.:14:57.

about on your way home. But will he get married? That is the issue.

:14:58.:15:03.

Thank you for joining us. We will have to leave it there. Thank you to

:15:04.:15:14.

our guests who are sitting there thinking, is it over? Can we go? The

:15:15.:15:23.

headlines are coming up. But next, the Film Review. Hello and welcome

:15:24.:15:39.
