Cipriani. The latest on that, and who will meet Leighton Orient in the

:00:00.:00:00.

league one play`off final. That is in 15 minutes time.

:00:00.:00:17.

Welcome to our lookahead of the papers, ``look ahead. Let's have a

:00:18.:00:32.

look at some of the front pages. The Independent says that the

:00:33.:00:34.

Conservatives are exploiting a loophole that lets backers make

:00:35.:00:37.

anonymous donations to the party using a private members club. The

:00:38.:00:42.

express is leading on the safety of statins. The Telegraph says that one

:00:43.:00:46.

in five Britons with a university degree goes on to become a

:00:47.:00:53.

millionaire. Tesco is offering HIV tests with your groceries, that is

:00:54.:00:56.

according to the metro. The Guardian has a report from Jabbar, the

:00:57.:01:00.

Nigerian town were more than 200 schoolgirls were kidnapped by

:01:01.:01:04.

Islamist militants more than a month ago ``Chibok. The Times says that

:01:05.:01:13.

research on global warming was deliberately suppressed. And the

:01:14.:01:17.

Daily Mail says that the Internet could be harming children's mental

:01:18.:01:21.

health. The Daily Mirror reports on a carer who was jailed after she

:01:22.:01:27.

stole from a pensioners handbag. Let's start with the Guardian. The

:01:28.:01:31.

continuing story in north`eastern Nigeria. Our girls, a report in the

:01:32.:01:38.

Guardian on the town, where more than 200 girls are still missing.

:01:39.:01:44.

This is a chilling story, of this organisation, Boko Haram, who

:01:45.:01:51.

believe Western education is bad. It has been terrorising... It has been

:01:52.:01:58.

going on for well over a year. It has caught the attention of the

:01:59.:02:01.

world. What has happened to these people is that they are complaining,

:02:02.:02:05.

and their real anger is with the Nigerian authorities who do not seem

:02:06.:02:08.

to be doing a lot, despite the noise as they are making. They have been

:02:09.:02:13.

disregarded and discarded almost. There is a good report from

:02:14.:02:17.

journalists who have gone to that area and spoken to people. One does

:02:18.:02:22.

not know what has happened. Some of the relations, they say that the

:02:23.:02:26.

girls are still there. Some believe they could be in another country.

:02:27.:02:33.

The hashtag, and the world wide condemnation of what has happened.

:02:34.:02:36.

You would think that is putting pressure on the Nigerian authorities

:02:37.:02:42.

are doing something. There is the suggestion that there is nothing

:02:43.:02:46.

being done. It must be every mother 's nightmare and parents nightmare,

:02:47.:02:49.

you send your child to school and then they never come back. There is

:02:50.:02:54.

some thought that because it is girls rather than boys, the

:02:55.:02:58.

authorities have not taken it seriously enough. It looks as though

:02:59.:03:03.

the rest of the world is taking this particularly seriously. The

:03:04.:03:05.

Nigerians have been, perhaps, a bit slow, I can understand the

:03:06.:03:11.

frustration of the parents. It must be horrific. I do not know where the

:03:12.:03:18.

girls off `` they do not know. `` where the girls are. There has to be

:03:19.:03:26.

a worldwide awareness, in the sense that we are aware of our terrorism

:03:27.:03:30.

and terrorist groups. Boko Haram is not an organisation that, until a

:03:31.:03:37.

few months ago, was known about. It is supposed to be more vicious than

:03:38.:03:41.

Al Qaeda, everyone has heard of them and frightened of them. This parody

:03:42.:03:44.

makes Al Qaeda look like a walk in the park. Then in the media, are we

:03:45.:03:50.

not doing our jobs? `` apparently. This has been headlines for a while,

:03:51.:03:55.

it is on the front pages. But it has taken time. It has been going on for

:03:56.:03:59.

a long time. This particular story appears to have captured world

:04:00.:04:05.

attention. Hopefully, there will be a good outcome. Nobody actually

:04:06.:04:10.

knows. The British have sent a spy planes and so have the Americans,

:04:11.:04:13.

the Israelis are also involved. They might not even be in Nigeria. They

:04:14.:04:23.

could be across the board in Chad ``in Niger. Dashboard. This is a

:04:24.:04:37.

ruling, saying that Google can withdraw information. It is a scary

:04:38.:04:43.

story, they say that whatever you have done in the past from the can

:04:44.:04:50.

wipe it out ``border. It could be fine if you are talking about one

:04:51.:04:54.

small fine for a misdemeanour. But the people who have applied, you

:04:55.:04:59.

have got paedophiles, a doctor who got negative reviews from patients.

:05:00.:05:03.

If I was going to a doctor and he had active reviews, I would like to

:05:04.:05:09.

know about it. If those reviews were not valid, fair enough. `` had

:05:10.:05:17.

negative reviews. But if someone is convicted of a crime committed can

:05:18.:05:21.

be wiped out. In future, any partner of someone who has been convicted of

:05:22.:05:26.

some, perhaps, attempted rape, or actual rate or grooviest bodily

:05:27.:05:30.

harm, they would want to know before they go out with them. `` or actual

:05:31.:05:40.

rape all the previous bodily harm ``or GBH. But this is the emphasis

:05:41.:05:47.

on privacy rather than freedom of information. In Britain and America,

:05:48.:05:53.

it is more that you are entitled to have information. In Europe, there

:05:54.:05:56.

is always a greater stress on privacy. It worries me. OK,

:05:57.:06:03.

conviction is spent, but if something has happened and you need

:06:04.:06:07.

to know, the only way you can do it now is going on the Internet and if

:06:08.:06:12.

it is not there, it is like you have rewritten history. You would want to

:06:13.:06:16.

know about it. Obviously, if someone has served their time and they have

:06:17.:06:18.

done something and repented and changed, it is fine. Like the

:06:19.:06:22.

Spanish man who wanted the suggestion that he was still

:06:23.:06:26.

insolvent, he wanted it wiped out. He is OK now. If you are going into

:06:27.:06:30.

business with someone like that you need to know. You would still make

:06:31.:06:33.

that decision but you will be vigilant. The other thing that is

:06:34.:06:37.

interesting is that Google is saying that it does not want to take those

:06:38.:06:43.

decisions. It does not want to be responsible for saying which

:06:44.:06:46.

information it should wipe out or not. It should be an official data

:06:47.:06:50.

protection regulator or something. That is a fair point. With power

:06:51.:06:54.

comes great responsibility! Google is huge and! They have two was up to

:06:55.:07:04.

it. `` Google is huge! They have two face up to it. The North`South

:07:05.:07:11.

divide is growing, we have known about this for a while? We have, but

:07:12.:07:15.

the figures emphasise that those in the south on the south`east are

:07:16.:07:18.

twice as rich as those in the north`east. To a certain extent, the

:07:19.:07:24.

earlier story we were doing on it... What has been happening, this

:07:25.:07:29.

is something that Royals will know well about. ``Ros. The gap between

:07:30.:07:39.

the rich and the poor, that has been increasing and it has not been

:07:40.:07:42.

decreasing. That was what was supposed to be happening. It is a

:07:43.:07:51.

sobering fact. Since 2008, this is a good article, and it shows that in

:07:52.:07:56.

London, wealth has increased by more than 25%, but if you look at the

:07:57.:08:00.

north`west, it has stayed flat, and in the East Midlands, it has fallen

:08:01.:08:05.

by 12%. The divide in the nation is becoming much greater. We don't seem

:08:06.:08:10.

to care though, do we? It has been happening for a long time. As a

:08:11.:08:15.

society, what are we doing to stop it from happening? The policies that

:08:16.:08:19.

are being pursued in the terms of ultralow interest rates to help the

:08:20.:08:24.

South, it is helping the self and not the north. For anyone who has

:08:25.:08:28.

got lots of assets, or investments in the stock market, they have

:08:29.:08:34.

benefited from policy ``south. If you are trying to earn a living,

:08:35.:08:38.

wages have not kept up with increases in wealth and in real

:08:39.:08:42.

terms wages have not kept up sufficiently with the rises in

:08:43.:08:50.

inflation. The power in London has got more concentrated. If you look

:08:51.:08:55.

back 60` 70 years, Birmingham, Manchester, someone, they were

:08:56.:09:01.

important cities. They are not that important `` they were not that

:09:02.:09:05.

important. I know they are holding the football league title!

:09:06.:09:10.

Manchester City. But the traditional areas, as centres of power, they are

:09:11.:09:16.

more diminished than they were hysterically. London appears to be

:09:17.:09:24.

acquiring more power, in that sense. The emphasis on financial services,

:09:25.:09:29.

down in the city, and the overall emphasis on public sector work up in

:09:30.:09:34.

the North. Banking and housing have done brilliantly. They tend to buy

:09:35.:09:41.

property in the South. Not in Manchester. Some of the big cities

:09:42.:09:47.

are starting to catch up. You should go up there and buy a football club!

:09:48.:09:52.

We are going to go on to the Scotsman, we will bypass the

:09:53.:09:59.

Telegraph. David Cameron has been in Glasgow. He has been promising new

:10:00.:10:06.

powers. Basically what the Prime Minister is trying to do is to say,

:10:07.:10:10.

look, stay with us, and we will give you more powers. I must admit, that

:10:11.:10:17.

I find this whole idea that Scotland could actually break away from the

:10:18.:10:21.

UK, I find it quite incredible. Economically, I think it could be a

:10:22.:10:26.

disaster for Scotland. What the prime ministers trying to say is, do

:10:27.:10:29.

not break away from us, stay with us, but I will give you more

:10:30.:10:38.

powers. `` Minister's. You have hit the nail on the head, by saying, if

:10:39.:10:42.

they move away, it will be a disaster for them economically. That

:10:43.:10:46.

has been a problem with the campaign, they have been stressing

:10:47.:10:50.

the negatives rather than positives. He is putting the positives in. He

:10:51.:10:54.

is trying to change the argument and say that he can do it for you. What

:10:55.:11:01.

he is saying is that he can almost expand the powers of devolution.

:11:02.:11:06.

This is, if you like, a break from what the Tories have always said.

:11:07.:11:09.

Have opposed devolution when it came in. It is a much more attractive

:11:10.:11:17.

argument to present rather than saying, if you do this, this is the

:11:18.:11:20.

bad thing that will happen to you, rather than saying, if you stay with

:11:21.:11:25.

us, these are the good things. The worry is if we have a close vote. ``

:11:26.:11:36.

closed vote. 40`45% could say no, and that would be a great worry. We

:11:37.:11:39.

will have another referendum in ten years time. David Cameron is, sing

:11:40.:11:45.

new powers to Holyrood, that is what the SNP were pushing for. `` David

:11:46.:11:52.

Cameron is pushing for new powers. Nobody has taken this seriously. It

:11:53.:11:57.

is probably a lot closer, when you go out to Scotland and talk to

:11:58.:12:02.

people, there is a real feeling that it is an ideological issue. It is a

:12:03.:12:14.

powerful thing common knowledge. Let's go to The Times, `` a powerful

:12:15.:12:29.

thing, knowledge. GSOH Means good sense of humour, and apparently it

:12:30.:12:34.

is not required for online others! This is an analysis of the qualities

:12:35.:12:40.

that people are looking for, and among men, they are looking for, in

:12:41.:12:44.

women, for sweet, thoughtful, ambitious women, and women are

:12:45.:12:50.

looking for physically fit, perceptive, passionate man. ``MEN.

:12:51.:13:00.

That is important, I do not think women, generally,

:13:01.:13:38.

look importantly at what women's photo look like. `` photos. That

:13:39.:13:52.

would be absolutely awful. Such a wonderful, wonderful cartoon, the

:13:53.:13:53.

best of Richard Chartres, creativity. And they have won so

:13:54.:14:01.

many awards. You cannot `` the best of British creativity. They have won

:14:02.:14:06.

so many awards. You cannot believe they would be doing any more. And

:14:07.:14:10.

it's because the voice of Wallace is so frail. It really would be the end

:14:11.:14:17.

of an era. So many people automatically know Wallace Gromit.

:14:18.:14:24.

Someone said in my earpiece that they could always get Ed Miliband. I

:14:25.:14:34.

did not want to say it! Thank you for joining us. Thank you. The

:14:35.:14:44.

headlines are coming up at 12 o'clock and the latest on the

:14:45.:14:50.

unfolding situation in Turkey, where there have been protests across the

:14:51.:14:54.

country. But now, it's time for all of the sport.

:14:55.:15:07.

Hello and welcome to

:15:08.:15:08.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - Clive Myrie presents a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
