and Chelsea. We also have the tennis from Rome, a win for Andy Murray but

:00:00.:00:00.

a defeat for Roger Federer. Stay with me, Sportsday is straight after

:00:00.:00:18.

the papers. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:19.:00:22.

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

:00:23.:00:24.

Kevin Schofield, Chief Political Correspondent, The Sun and Emma

:00:25.:00:27.

Barnett, Women's Editor at The Telegraph. Tomorrow's front pages,

:00:28.:00:43.

starting with many of the front pages have pictures of the teenager

:00:44.:00:46.

Stephen Sutton who has died from cancer after raising nearly 3.5

:00:47.:00:48.

million pounds for charity. The Telegraph shows him there with his

:00:49.:00:51.

mother who says her heart is bursting with pride and breaking

:00:52.:00:54.

with pain. The paper also has a story about high levels of sugar

:00:55.:00:57.

consumption, and a potential obesity time bomb.The advice is, we should

:00:58.:01:00.

be drinking just one glass of fruit juice a day. Stephen Sutton is also

:01:01.:01:04.

on the front page of the Mirror which praises his courage and

:01:05.:01:13.

inspiration to others. The Sun has a tribute to the teenager with a quote

:01:14.:01:16.

from an interview he gave to the paper, saying "you only get one shot

:01:17.:01:22.

at life... Make it count". There are shocking pictures in The Times of

:01:23.:01:25.

two of its journalists who escaped over the Syrian border after they

:01:26.:01:28.

were kidnapped, beaten and shot.The Guardian has a picture of Nicole

:01:29.:01:31.

Kidman at the Cannes Film Festival where her new film Grace of Monaco

:01:32.:01:35.

has come in for a lot of stick from the critics. The paper's main story

:01:36.:01:38.

is its own investigation into conditions for migrant workers in

:01:39.:01:41.

Qatar, which it says has now brought about change in the World Cup state.

:01:42.:01:44.

The Mail claims bosses at Astra Zeneca are set to pocket up to 60

:01:45.:01:48.

million pounds if the drugs giant is taken over by Pfizer. The

:01:49.:01:51.

Independent leads with the news that the number of migrants from new EU

:01:52.:01:53.

member states has actually fallen since restrictions were lifted in

:01:54.:01:55.

January. So let's begin. We will start with

:01:56.:02:01.

that, on the front of the Independent, fewer Bulgarians and

:02:02.:02:05.

Romanians, the truth about UKIP's Flood, is Farage in trouble? I don't

:02:06.:02:08.

think so, yet, the idea of this flood, these posters and

:02:09.:02:16.

scaremongering going on, it has not materialised since the figures are

:02:17.:02:21.

out. It is down in the last three months of 2013, in particular, those

:02:22.:02:27.

two groups who are coming here to work, but on the year, it is up,

:02:28.:02:33.

29,000. I do not think it is a foregone conclusion but the idea

:02:34.:02:35.

that the minute you open the floodgates, they change something,

:02:36.:02:38.

that there will be all of these people coming in, that has not

:02:39.:02:44.

materialised. It has to be said, the red tops, including your paper, that

:02:45.:02:49.

contributed, some would say, to the scare stories, do you think you have

:02:50.:02:56.

it wrong? No, as I said earlier, we were reflecting many of the

:02:57.:02:59.

predictions being made, I don't think anyone even knows, maybe on

:03:00.:03:08.

the left, predicting numbers would fall once the tradition was made. It

:03:09.:03:15.

was not only UKIP and that kind of constituency that was saying they

:03:16.:03:18.

are all going to be coming? Clearly, no one was predicting mess, and the

:03:19.:03:25.

figures... Some made a bit high. It is worth saying that this is the

:03:26.:03:34.

first three months. `` predicting this. With people wanting to come

:03:35.:03:43.

into Britain to live and work, in summer we will see what the figures

:03:44.:03:49.

are. The Daily Mail were saying that seats were booked up, you can get on

:03:50.:03:53.

a flight. Again, some people were saying that in the run`up to New

:03:54.:03:56.

Year's Day, but then it transpired that that did not actually happen.

:03:57.:03:59.

What was funny was that Keith Barnes, a MP, he took it on himself

:04:00.:04:07.

to go to an airport on New Year 's morning. Maybe that has scared them

:04:08.:04:17.

off! He got there, and said, hang on a minute... There is an MP here!

:04:18.:04:24.

What is scary is that trouble for Farage is trouble for UKIP. The

:04:25.:04:29.

thing with Farage is that he is Teflon, nothing sticks to him.

:04:30.:04:36.

People want this to be true. UKIP want these figures to be true, they

:04:37.:04:42.

will just say, we told you so! It almost does not matter, in spite of

:04:43.:04:46.

the fact. A lot of the appeal of UKIP is that they are not the Tories

:04:47.:04:52.

and they are not Labour or the Liberal Democrats. They can say or

:04:53.:04:54.

do anything. People will vote for them. It is giving a kick into the

:04:55.:05:01.

mainstream party. It is facts over matter? We are trained to make the

:05:02.:05:06.

matter, even in this discussion. Even for UKIP? A lot of the time, it

:05:07.:05:12.

is the sentiment. It is a motion. Farage has positioned himself as an

:05:13.:05:18.

outsider, which political leader can get away with their photo being of

:05:19.:05:25.

them with a pint? Know what else can pull that off. He is pulling it off

:05:26.:05:29.

because he is positioning himself saying that he is not like the

:05:30.:05:36.

others. `` nobody else can pull that off. They are going to miss it by a

:05:37.:05:44.

mile. It plays into the UKIP agenda. Let's go on to your newspaper, " you

:05:45.:05:50.

get one shot at life, make it count" . Stephen Sutton has raised

:05:51.:05:55.

?3 million for a cancer charity and has now passed away, he died, he had

:05:56.:06:01.

bowel cancer at the age of 15, and now he has passed away. But he

:06:02.:06:06.

really did make it count, didn't he? It is an incredible legacy to leave

:06:07.:06:10.

behind, what strikes you as you read this, it is his incredible

:06:11.:06:16.

positivity. He knew that he did not have long to live. He says he

:06:17.:06:22.

smiles, because he has a lot to smile about. He has seen a lot and

:06:23.:06:26.

achieved a lot, and has had fun doing it too. Given that he was so

:06:27.:06:31.

young, most of us, we would feel angry and bitter that his wife has

:06:32.:06:36.

been snatched away like that, but he was an incredible young man. He was

:06:37.:06:40.

on the front page of the Daily Mirror as well, he was just 19,

:06:41.:06:49.

courageously fought cancer, raised ?3.5 million for charity, and

:06:50.:06:56.

inspired a nation. His stories on the front of all of the tabloids, is

:06:57.:07:03.

that surprising? `` his story. Or, is his story so incredible that he

:07:04.:07:08.

deserves to be on the front cover? It was already across the front

:07:09.:07:12.

pages of all of the websites, never mind the papers. I know what you

:07:13.:07:15.

mean, that this boy has captured the imagination of the people, that is

:07:16.:07:19.

huge. It does not normally happen, these sorts of stories. It is the

:07:20.:07:26.

amount of money, it must be. ?3.5 million, for one person to achieve,

:07:27.:07:32.

that is one of the single largest for a single person to have raised

:07:33.:07:37.

on their own. It is one of the largest contributions in this area.

:07:38.:07:39.

And they are still counting. It is the sheer breadth of the idea of how

:07:40.:07:43.

much he has been able to raise and this bucket list but he had that he

:07:44.:07:47.

wanted to get done before he died. That in itself captures peoples

:07:48.:07:53.

emotions and gets them to put their hands in their pockets. It is also

:07:54.:07:58.

in an age where... There is a credit crunch and there are problems with

:07:59.:08:03.

the economy, and so forth. The tragedy for him and his family, that

:08:04.:08:10.

is a good news story, on the greatness of humanity, and what the

:08:11.:08:16.

goodness of mankind is. I don't want to build it up too much. But it is

:08:17.:08:22.

at a time when we are bombarded with negative stories of people on

:08:23.:08:29.

trials, and so on, but this is a story of courage, that is why so

:08:30.:08:33.

minute people have latched onto it. He met the Prime Minister, and he

:08:34.:08:40.

has latched onto it. It is an incredible story. Let's go onto the

:08:41.:08:47.

times, a journalist has been shot by Syria `` The Times newspaper. He has

:08:48.:08:52.

survived. These are horrific pictures. Two photojournalists, this

:08:53.:09:00.

is Jack Hill, the main photo is of Anthony Loyd, he is bruised and

:09:01.:09:05.

battered. You don't often get journalists on the front pages of

:09:06.:09:10.

their own newspapers. The Times newspaper is making a point of doing

:09:11.:09:15.

this. These two are phenomenally lucky to be alive. We are lucky to

:09:16.:09:20.

have people who get these stories. It is not bad to remind people of

:09:21.:09:24.

that. A lot of the time, foreign news stories are difficult. We

:09:25.:09:28.

talked about, why is Stephen Sutton on the front pages? He is a British

:09:29.:09:33.

boy, we can imagine being neighbours with him. Syria, and these other

:09:34.:09:36.

stories, they are very important, and we cannot find a way into it

:09:37.:09:42.

ourselves. By seeing that to Western reporters who are out there are

:09:43.:09:46.

serving us as the public to get stories, they are at the hands of

:09:47.:09:50.

rebels themselves and could be losing their lives and they are.

:09:51.:09:53.

They are being beaten within an inch of their lives. That is something

:09:54.:09:57.

that brings the story home and brings the story home to people in

:09:58.:10:03.

the country. It was one rebel faction that did this, they were

:10:04.:10:15.

rescued by another rebel front? Apparently, when they found out

:10:16.:10:20.

about it, they made a beeline to where they were being held, and they

:10:21.:10:24.

insisted that they were freed. The suspicion is that those who took

:10:25.:10:27.

them, they took them and thought that they were Western journalists

:10:28.:10:35.

and they would be worth a few quid. Then they came to the rescue. The

:10:36.:10:40.

story is like something from a Hollywood film. They were bundled

:10:41.:10:43.

into the back of a car, they were thrown into the boot, and they could

:10:44.:10:47.

see what was happening through a crack in the boot, they kicked it

:10:48.:10:51.

open and got away, they were recaptured and were then beaten and

:10:52.:10:57.

Anthony Loyd was shot twice in the leg. It is an incredible story.

:10:58.:11:04.

Incredibly lucky. Let's go onto the Guardian. Terry is to end the abuse

:11:05.:11:15.

of slave migrant workers. `` Qatar is to finish. They got the 2022

:11:16.:11:21.

World Cup, they are affecting some kind of change over there. Officials

:11:22.:11:25.

have said they will replace the current sponsorship system, that

:11:26.:11:28.

means that a worker is tethered to their employer in terms of their

:11:29.:11:32.

rights, that means that, essentially, once the workers

:11:33.:11:35.

working for one person, they can do anything, essentially, to them. They

:11:36.:11:40.

have been very concerned about the rights of these migrant workers,

:11:41.:11:47.

what is interesting is the recommendations for these changes

:11:48.:11:50.

comes from a London law firm which was commissioned to review the

:11:51.:11:55.

legislative framework in the country. It is a real influence, if

:11:56.:12:02.

you think about it. It shows a side of sport that I never think about,

:12:03.:12:07.

when the eyes of the world are on a country where everyone is looking

:12:08.:12:11.

for a certain period of time, you had to see if it is lasting change

:12:12.:12:16.

or whether it can actually happen. There is the opportunity to do some

:12:17.:12:21.

good. It is interesting, many people criticise the awarding of the World

:12:22.:12:26.

Cup to Qatar, it is going to be very hot, and it is a Gulf state, but

:12:27.:12:32.

actually, many people say that it will focus the light on them, and

:12:33.:12:35.

then they have to look at themselves and what they are doing in certain

:12:36.:12:42.

sectors of society. It will be good is good came from it, but it is the

:12:43.:12:47.

combination of horrific stories, about dozens, if not hundreds, of

:12:48.:12:51.

foreign workers and migrant workers in Qatar who have died building B

:12:52.:12:56.

stadiums, because they are working in shoddy conditions and working

:12:57.:13:06.

around the clock `` building these stadiums. It is only around the

:13:07.:13:12.

corner and it is worth remembering what actually goes on behind the

:13:13.:13:21.

scenes and it shows the dark underbelly of this sport. You

:13:22.:13:30.

mentioned it is not the ideal place to hold a summer sporting event. But

:13:31.:13:38.

they need to shine a light and improve the working conditions. That

:13:39.:13:45.

would be a very good thing. We are going to end with the Guardian as

:13:46.:13:52.

well. The Independent, send photograph. Nicole Kidman at the

:13:53.:13:59.

opening of the biotech in the title role of Grace Kelly of Monaco. It

:14:00.:14:07.

has not gone down too well. It has not been released yet. It has not

:14:08.:14:12.

been released. The Royal family are furious. They would not have minded

:14:13.:14:20.

it either had historic net. But apparently it is lacking in terms of

:14:21.:14:24.

film policy and what they feel is the representation of their

:14:25.:14:31.

mother's life. It is awkward. The film festival is where Grace Kelly

:14:32.:14:35.

met her future husband, the King. Where she became a princess. This is

:14:36.:14:45.

going down pretty badly. Thank you for this. He described the film as a

:14:46.:14:49.

142 minute Chanel ad without the depth or insight. We have to end it

:14:50.:15:01.

there. It has been great having you. Thank you. Stay with us. At the top

:15:02.:15:09.

of the hour, much more on that continuing rescue effort to try and

:15:10.:15:14.

get at some of the dozens of men still trapped several kilometres

:15:15.:15:21.

below ground in the western Turkey. Now it is time for Sportsday.

:15:22.:15:37.

Good evening, this is Sportsday. Curses! Benfica beaten

:15:38.:15:38.
