excluded from the French party. A possible return for Freddie and an

:00:00.:00:00.

update on the Joe Root Italia. `` G Road Italia.

:00:00.:00:17.

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

:00:18.:00:27.

tomorrow. With me Liam Halligan and Hugo Rifkind. Let us look at the

:00:28.:00:33.

front pages. The EU court ruling that means Google could have to

:00:34.:00:36.

delete search results which might upset or embarrass anyone with the

:00:37.:00:44.

so`called right to be forgotten. A little understood tax policy that

:00:45.:00:47.

means half a million middle`class professionals are paying income tax

:00:48.:00:52.

of 60%. More on the attempted takeover of

:00:53.:01:03.

Astra Zeneca by Pfizer. Why was Internet predator not

:01:04.:01:07.

jailed, asks the Daily Mail. The case of a 34`year`old man who was

:01:08.:01:13.

that of a child sex charges, but only given a three`year

:01:14.:01:20.

rehabilitation order. Allegations by a former deputy

:01:21.:01:24.

leader that MEPs are made to donate large sums.

:01:25.:01:32.

A secret five`month battle with lung cancer.

:01:33.:01:37.

We are going to start with the Independent. UK troops could face

:01:38.:01:43.

war crimes trial. We are a long way off that. But this is the beginning

:01:44.:01:47.

of something that could be extremely embarrassing. This is potentially a

:01:48.:01:50.

serious story. It is hard to know which direction

:01:51.:01:54.

it is going to go. What is not clear at is whether this is the first

:01:55.:02:02.

evidence of whether we are seeing something terrible happening in this

:02:03.:02:05.

country or evidence of Britain being a country that co`operates fully on

:02:06.:02:12.

the basis of quite sketchy allegations. It is impossible to say

:02:13.:02:17.

which one of those is true. It is a sign of the fact that we are signed

:02:18.:02:21.

up to the International Criminal Court. We are part of its

:02:22.:02:27.

jurisdiction, America is not. It is a sign that we are open, a country

:02:28.:02:30.

that is willing to abide by the rule of law. The ICC and the Hague is

:02:31.:02:37.

saying allegedly that there were 60 unlawful killings and the hundred 70

:02:38.:02:48.

mistreatment of prisoners. `` 170. The government has a carefully

:02:49.:02:53.

calibrated response. On the one hand we will corporate with the ICC, but

:02:54.:02:59.

it was also said that the government rejects the allegations of systemic

:03:00.:03:08.

abuse, crucial word they, systemic. They also think the incident is

:03:09.:03:12.

being referred to, they have been conned brands of the investigated.

:03:13.:03:18.

This is going to be a slow burn story. The early indications are

:03:19.:03:22.

that even the preliminary hearings will take several years. This is

:03:23.:03:29.

kind to be operating just below the news radar for a long time to come.

:03:30.:03:37.

`` going. Some potentially pretty serious revelations. What the public

:03:38.:03:43.

needs to understand with this possible case is that the allegation

:03:44.:03:50.

is that this was organised, this was systematic. Senior military and

:03:51.:04:00.

political figures are named. It is the suggestion that whatever was

:04:01.:04:07.

happening went to the top. There were policies directing the army. We

:04:08.:04:15.

have got to remember that a lot of this evidence is coming from the

:04:16.:04:21.

armies and records. The British Army is a relatively easy army to

:04:22.:04:25.

investigate. You are going to be in trouble investigating the Iraq army.

:04:26.:04:32.

It studies its own misdeeds, it investigates its own misdeeds, there

:04:33.:04:36.

is a body of evidence. We have to wait and see which way it will go.

:04:37.:04:44.

Going on to the Financial Times. A blow to US Internet companies. This

:04:45.:04:49.

is the whole issue of the right to be forgotten if you have things up

:04:50.:04:55.

on the Internet. This is a ruling by the court of justice. You will get

:04:56.:05:04.

some people say that it is a blow for free expression and freedom of

:05:05.:05:08.

the press. On the other hand, on the other side of the argument

:05:09.:05:16.

intermediaries and media companies that publish stuff on the Internet

:05:17.:05:23.

may have to be responsible for the veracity of what they publish. This

:05:24.:05:32.

is an implication that in many ways is almost old`fashioned and

:05:33.:05:36.

anachronistic. It is trying to regulate the Internet by

:05:37.:05:39.

jurisdiction. It is almost impossible. What if you are someone

:05:40.:05:46.

who has a personal record and it is up there. Can you apply to have it

:05:47.:05:57.

completely wiped? You can, provided people are going to search in the

:05:58.:06:01.

right way. I have been thinking this over. Before I was in camp, then I

:06:02.:06:15.

was the other. The EU can only have jurisdiction over Google .co .uk. Go

:06:16.:06:19.

to Google .com and you are using the American site. It is part of press

:06:20.:06:28.

regulation. The idea that we can pass laws in this country that limit

:06:29.:06:32.

what people can see on the Internet without being incredibly

:06:33.:06:38.

authoritarian. The point of the Internet is that it is global.

:06:39.:06:42.

Unless we are going to regulate the traffic that comes into this

:06:43.:06:47.

country, which has massive free`speech implications, all we can

:06:48.:06:50.

do is look at the past that are based here. `` parts. And while

:06:51.:06:57.

somebody has been accused of something scurrilous Romilly, on the

:06:58.:07:03.

other hand if you have committed a crime the public has the right to

:07:04.:07:07.

know that you committed that crime. That should not be removed. What

:07:08.:07:17.

about the idea 20 years ago that he did something silly as a teenager?

:07:18.:07:24.

It depends on what it is. There is a danger on facilitating a system in

:07:25.:07:30.

which it is in the power of people with expensive lawyers to change the

:07:31.:07:38.

public record. That is ominous. Let us go on to the Guardian. This is

:07:39.:07:44.

getting interesting. UKIP. This is the face of the future, apparently.

:07:45.:07:50.

A rising star accuses the party of racism. We have a special event with

:07:51.:07:57.

Nigel Farage and a lot of ethnic minorities behind him. Firstly, I

:07:58.:08:09.

doubt it is a coincidence when she is choosing to go. The fact that she

:08:10.:08:12.

is going in the run`up to EU elections, there that in mind. She

:08:13.:08:17.

has been a member of the party when she was 18. She was formerly very

:08:18.:08:26.

keen on it. She thought she was believing in EU's ideals. She now

:08:27.:08:38.

says of late the UKIP party has been attracting the racist vote. She says

:08:39.:08:42.

that they have been spreading a message of us and them. It is an

:08:43.:08:47.

important story. She is right. She is right because UKIP has obviously

:08:48.:08:56.

made a calculation as to how best to spread anti` EU politics and they

:08:57.:09:01.

have decided to do so by being anti` aggression. UKIP used to not talk

:09:02.:09:04.

about immigration. `` anti`immigration. It was about

:09:05.:09:12.

sovereign powers. They have really made a conscious effort to harness

:09:13.:09:19.

the anti`immigration vote. It is working. It is ugly and I find it

:09:20.:09:28.

frightening. Good on her for speaking out against it. What about

:09:29.:09:35.

all that stuff last week. There were a number of black and Indian people

:09:36.:09:38.

standing kind Nigel Farage when he made it clear that his party is not

:09:39.:09:46.

racist. He is going to stand by it. One would have thought that the

:09:47.:09:49.

minorities in the party do not think it is racist. They were a lot of

:09:50.:09:57.

them around him. The mainstream media has been a little bit guilty

:09:58.:10:08.

of homing in on the peccadilloes and misdemeanours of UKIP candidates. It

:10:09.:10:14.

is not hard. That is compared to those of Tory, labour and Liberal

:10:15.:10:20.

candidates. To a degree. This is damaging for the party. You have got

:10:21.:10:24.

a young lady who is going to create a lot of attention. It is a very

:10:25.:10:37.

powerful message. Then we have the story that UKIP MEPs elected are

:10:38.:10:45.

going to have to donate 10% to their salary to the party. I was not aware

:10:46.:10:54.

of that. It is not a terribly shocking state of affairs. Parties

:10:55.:11:00.

thrived when they are elected to the European Parliament. You have UKIP

:11:01.:11:08.

candidates are rotated at the fact that they do not get to keep all

:11:09.:11:14.

their money. The Times is calling it a scandal. If there is an element of

:11:15.:11:23.

coercion going on, what the paper suggests is that candidates have not

:11:24.:11:29.

to donate cash are being threatened with being barred from standing

:11:30.:11:32.

again. That sounds fairly scandalous. Going back to the point

:11:33.:11:37.

that if you're perhaps the press have been targeting UKIP a bit more

:11:38.:11:47.

than other parties. `` you feel. UKIP is this new force that

:11:48.:11:53.

potentially will be picking up speed. I think that is fair. The

:11:54.:12:01.

European elections, it is a long way to the general elections. The media

:12:02.:12:06.

will give each party a thorough examination. It is partly because

:12:07.:12:15.

UKIP is the new kid on the block. It is not a coincidence. They are not

:12:16.:12:19.

joining the Green party. There is something in the rhetoric of this

:12:20.:12:24.

party which appeals to them. They have not in the past been well

:12:25.:12:31.

served by a mainstream political party. I keep coming back to this

:12:32.:12:35.

point, but UKIP needs to ask why racist like it so much. `` racists.

:12:36.:12:48.

It has been doing well. There is clearly a constituency that likes

:12:49.:12:54.

the message. The message is everything. The message is in every

:12:55.:12:59.

direction at once. They claim to be a party that represents the poor

:13:00.:13:05.

while they will strip away every measure of support to Britain's most

:13:06.:13:12.

disadvantaged. They claim to be 100 different things at once. They claim

:13:13.:13:18.

to be a grassroots party, yet they are backing establishment. I also

:13:19.:13:31.

feel discomfort at UKIP always stressing immigration, reticular

:13:32.:13:35.

lead the posters that have come out recently. `` particularly. I think a

:13:36.:13:45.

lot of the public wants the debate but what I hope is that UKIP don't

:13:46.:13:52.

blow it by completely discrediting themselves to the detriment of all

:13:53.:13:56.

of us having a decent debate about European Union membership. We will

:13:57.:14:11.

and on this one. England, England, Scotland. The Giants a football

:14:12.:14:23.

around this table `` of. Officially, the Home Office says

:14:24.:14:29.

that England will not win the World Cup. They have to build into their

:14:30.:14:36.

models how they think the national team will do particularly in big

:14:37.:14:43.

competitions as it does affect consumer spending behaviour. In

:14:44.:14:52.

trying to ascertain the implications of keeping the pubs open later

:14:53.:14:55.

during the World Cup have had to examine the probability of England

:14:56.:14:59.

getting beyond the early stages which is only 54%. It's really are a

:15:00.:15:14.

winning side many times `` Italy, and Uruguay... Only the first two go

:15:15.:15:22.

through. We could be being unpatriotic. For us to get beyond

:15:23.:15:29.

the quarterfinals, it is only down to 11%. We are only a quarterfinal

:15:30.:15:44.

nation. Speaking as a late to this discussion, one of the things that I

:15:45.:15:48.

love the most about my adopted nation of England is the gleeful,

:15:49.:15:56.

dare I say childlike optimism as it relates to the English football

:15:57.:16:02.

team. The phones are ringing off the hook! Best of luck to you. You will

:16:03.:16:16.

need it. Stay with us now, much more coming up at the top of the hour but
