look ahead to the semifinal between Chelsea and Athletico Madrid as well

:00:00.:00:00.

as a look at the snooker. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:23.

to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are

:00:24.:00:26.

the broadcaster Daisy McAndrew and Ian Birrell, contributing editor at

:00:27.:00:29.

the Daily Mail. Tomorrow's front pages, starting with... The FT leads

:00:30.:00:39.

says Barclays is to create a bad bank to transform its struggling

:00:40.:00:42.

investment banking operations. The Telegraph says that Nigel Farage

:00:43.:00:45.

DOES plan to stand in the Newark by`election after former

:00:46.:00:46.

Conservative MP Patrick Mercer announced he will stand down this

:00:47.:00:49.

evening. The Guardian says the Justice Secretary has told prison

:00:50.:00:52.

governors he wants to cut costs by over two thousand pounds per

:00:53.:00:56.

prisoner. The Mail leads with tributes to Ann Maguire, the teacher

:00:57.:00:59.

who was killed in her classroom in Leeds yesterday. The Times also

:01:00.:01:03.

leads on that tragic story adding that Mrs Maguire brought up her two

:01:04.:01:07.

nephews after her sister died of cancer at the age of 36. The Sun

:01:08.:01:12.

says that Ann Maguire wasn't meant to be school yesterday but came in

:01:13.:01:16.

on her day off to help students get ready for exams. 'Heartless' is the

:01:17.:01:19.

Mirror's stark headline over a picture of secret filming of a care

:01:20.:01:22.

home resident begging for help but being ignored. And the Indepedent's

:01:23.:01:30.

top story is on the Royal Mail floatation. The papers says that 20%

:01:31.:01:40.

of shares were allocated to hedge funds and short term investors in

:01:41.:01:43.

contradiction to assurances given by the Business Secretary at the time

:01:44.:01:46.

that they would only go to long`term investors. Only one place to start.

:01:47.:02:00.

Nigel Farage. Will he, or won't he? Patrick Mercer was the first person

:02:01.:02:07.

to be fired from the front bench by David Cameron. Is revenge a dish

:02:08.:02:13.

best served cold? I don't think Patrick Mercer wanted to stand

:02:14.:02:24.

down. He was caught with his hand in the cookie jar. It has, no doubt,

:02:25.:02:33.

given David Cameron a major headache. Causing a by election at a

:02:34.:02:44.

very difficult time. Flanked by all of his lackeys who were very anti`

:02:45.:02:48.

David Cameron and now it's all lies on Nigel Farage `` it. All eyes are

:02:49.:03:02.

on him. The Telegraph certainly seems to think that he is poised to

:03:03.:03:10.

stand. Interesting that you was on the news tonight with their chief

:03:11.:03:21.

spin doctor. Many people are saying that he will be the one to stand.

:03:22.:03:36.

The problem is, if a UKIP person does win, the chance is that they

:03:37.:03:42.

will only have the seat for a year. That could be a bit tricky, a bit

:03:43.:03:58.

trouble magic. `` problematic. They had a lot of momentum running up to

:03:59.:04:05.

the election in 2010 and the previous local and European

:04:06.:04:09.

elections that year. That's trailed off when it came to the general

:04:10.:04:17.

election that year. A seat in Newark would certainly boost things. The

:04:18.:04:31.

Tories are ten points behind. The major politicians may not know how

:04:32.:04:33.

to deal with this phenomenon right now. They are led by a public`school

:04:34.:04:40.

educated guy on a very healthy salary and many candidates seem

:04:41.:04:46.

rather dubious. It is more publicity and that is helping them all the

:04:47.:04:56.

time. They do not know how to deal with it. Straight after a win it,

:04:57.:05:01.

there will be another question of what happens in Europe and they will

:05:02.:05:07.

dominate that debate and that gives them more momentum going into the

:05:08.:05:12.

election. Many people think that they will be under 10% before the

:05:13.:05:17.

next election but I think they will do better than they expect. The

:05:18.:05:22.

other problem is that it would be perfectly natural to put the

:05:23.:05:35.

by`election on another day but that cannot happen. It is a protest vote

:05:36.:05:45.

and the next day it will all be about the forthcoming by`election,

:05:46.:05:48.

rather than putting it all behind them. It will be extra expense as

:05:49.:05:56.

well. The Tories are defending a 16,000 majority, that will be hard

:05:57.:06:05.

to overturn. A by`election can do strange things. It could be

:06:06.:06:13.

seminal. If they only lose by 4000, they have still done wonders there

:06:14.:06:17.

are and will continue to build up their bandwagon and to show that

:06:18.:06:22.

they are a force that cannot be underestimated. At the moment they

:06:23.:06:25.

are flailing around all over the place and do not know how to deal

:06:26.:06:31.

with this, this creature which has risen up. The more supporters they

:06:32.:06:38.

get, the harder it is, because if you start to say that they are just

:06:39.:06:44.

a bunch of loonies, you are insulting all the new supporters.

:06:45.:06:50.

People are bending over backwards because of that. The fact that one

:06:51.:06:57.

or two of the candidates do look a bit nuts, is overlooked as a means

:06:58.:07:18.

to attract fans. They will take any boat they can get. We will stay with

:07:19.:07:25.

this front page, an impressive tributes to Anne Maguire the school

:07:26.:07:33.

teacher murdered in Leeds yesterday. So many stories are

:07:34.:07:37.

coming out about this woman and her personality. She was not supposed to

:07:38.:07:40.

be in school yesterday and was there to help students with their exams.

:07:41.:07:46.

She brought up her sister's children because she died of cancer. It is a

:07:47.:07:53.

tragic story and the more we learn about it, the more tragic it

:07:54.:07:57.

appears. She appeared to be such an inspirational teacher who had done a

:07:58.:08:01.

selfless and incredible thing in bringing up her nephews and to have

:08:02.:08:08.

been so close to retirement, the whole story is heartbreaking. The

:08:09.:08:16.

only thing you can say is that it is a very rare thing in this country

:08:17.:08:20.

and the only reason it has so much attention is because it is so rare.

:08:21.:08:26.

The prosecutor who is dealing with the case said he had seen nothing

:08:27.:08:30.

like it in 25 years top yellow thank goodness for that. `` well thank

:08:31.:08:54.

goodness for that. All the politicians are talking about it.

:08:55.:08:59.

David Cameron has already been asked about the violent computer games but

:09:00.:09:03.

nobody could possibly know what caused this to happen. That is the

:09:04.:09:11.

danger when something so shocking happens. Politicians must be slow

:09:12.:09:26.

and drag their feet. . Slow and old. A 15`year`old boy is being

:09:27.:09:31.

charged in connection with this story. We will move on. The jails

:09:32.:09:44.

have been told to cut cash. They have been told to do this quite

:09:45.:09:50.

heavily. They want to cut another 24% out of the budget. It seems to

:09:51.:10:01.

me that it is a shame because when Ken Clark came in he had a much more

:10:02.:10:13.

sane approach to prison. It is similar to what is happening in the

:10:14.:10:16.

United States where they are saying that effectively prison is a sign of

:10:17.:10:25.

state failure as one in three prisoners have done ten crimes or

:10:26.:10:32.

more. They have seen excellent results with low risk offences in

:10:33.:10:44.

Texas where one in four re` offended previously and now it is something

:10:45.:10:49.

like one in 100. We should not be getting soft on crime, but smart on

:10:50.:10:55.

crime. The American right have learned that and unfortunately here

:10:56.:11:00.

it has reverted and they are going for the hard`line, tough on crime

:11:01.:11:06.

stuff and it is a waste of money and very nonconservative to be wasting

:11:07.:11:14.

money, isn't it? He is talking about trying to save money. Budget will

:11:15.:11:21.

not solve the problems that cause people to commit crimes. If you

:11:22.:11:26.

really want to get on it darts dealing with the problems that are

:11:27.:11:37.

underlying it `` start. I could not agree more. They have done this in

:11:38.:11:41.

New York as well and politically, it was very difficult as you don't want

:11:42.:11:48.

to look like you are soft on crime. It is one of these areas where

:11:49.:11:53.

politicians already know all of this behind closed doors. They know it

:11:54.:12:00.

doesn't work but they don't want to lose votes to cut prison is

:12:01.:12:05.

popular. It was the American prison system that introduced these massive

:12:06.:12:13.

prisons and it is the very size that is the problem. In this prison they

:12:14.:12:21.

are talking about drug packages being thrown over the fence and it

:12:22.:12:25.

is all because the staff is not experienced enough apparently but I

:12:26.:12:29.

don't think it has anything to do with that. The entire system does

:12:30.:12:47.

not work. Do you like a bit of a flutter? I do but I understand the

:12:48.:12:57.

point here, the proliferation of gambling on high streets. I did not

:12:58.:13:07.

realised. `` realise. It is because they are the only type of company

:13:08.:13:15.

that do not have to get a planning application. They don't have to get

:13:16.:13:23.

one at all, how ridiculous is that? They can move into any premises they

:13:24.:13:32.

like. That is being tackled and the other problem is that these

:13:33.:13:39.

companies want to put more of their shops onto the high streets. They

:13:40.:13:45.

are only allowed a certain number of machines in each shop and they are

:13:46.:13:50.

so popular that they want more. Although I do like a bit of a

:13:51.:14:00.

flutter, I do think it is damaging. So much of it has moved online

:14:01.:14:06.

anyway. I think it is good that they are responding to it. It shows that

:14:07.:14:14.

politics can try to tackle some major problems although people sneer

:14:15.:14:22.

at politicians, they can... You wanted them all to shut up a moment

:14:23.:14:37.

ago. I am just trying to be kind. It is a very sad day. Young love. But

:14:38.:14:46.

it does happen, to be honest. You forget, this girl has been around.

:14:47.:14:52.

She is only 25 years old, poor lass. She seems to be saying now, it

:14:53.:15:02.

is because of the intense scrutiny. Apparently, the couple round over

:15:03.:15:08.

their future. I mean, where did the son get that from? Was that someone

:15:09.:15:19.

in the room? Where am I. Time is up. You will be pleased to note you will

:15:20.:15:22.

not need to talk about this story any more. I am very sad. Much

:15:23.:15:33.

appreciated. At midnight we will have the latest on the rest nation

:15:34.:15:37.

by Patrick Mercer after allegations he was paid to ask questions in

:15:38.:15:43.

Parliament. Now, it is time for Sportsday.
