in three days, forcing thousands from their homes.

:00:00.:00:13.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing

:00:14.:00:18.

us tomorrow. With me are the broadcaster and campaigner David

:00:19.:00:20.

Akinsanya, and Vincent Moss, political editor of the Sunday

:00:21.:00:26.

Mirror. Good to have you both here tonight. Tomorrow's front pages: The

:00:27.:00:29.

Sunday Times publishes its 'rich list', and says Britain's wealthiest

:00:30.:00:33.

people are getting even wealthier. The Observer reports that MPs are to

:00:34.:00:36.

investigate the outsourcing giant Serco over claims of sexual assault

:00:37.:00:39.

by one of its staff at an immigration detention centre. It has

:00:40.:00:42.

a picture of Arsenal winning the FA Cup.

:00:43.:00:49.

The Mail on Sunday says children as young as nine will receive drugs on

:00:50.:00:52.

the NHS to prepare them for sex`swap surgery.

:00:53.:00:56.

The Independent on Sunday warns that microbeads from exfoliaters and

:00:57.:00:58.

other domestic products are being washed into the sea, causing

:00:59.:01:03.

environmental damage. The Sunday Telegraph has an

:01:04.:01:06.

interview with the new culture secretary Sajid Javid. He tells them

:01:07.:01:09.

that immigrants coming to Britain "must learn to be British". Let's

:01:10.:01:22.

begin, and it is with that interview with the first Asian secretary of

:01:23.:01:26.

state speaking to the Sunday Telegraph. Though to be British, he

:01:27.:01:34.

says. Sajid Javid on how immigrants can find work, and respect life

:01:35.:01:41.

here. What I find interesting is he can say this, and lots of

:01:42.:01:46.

politicians should and could have said this in the past, but because

:01:47.:01:52.

he is Asian, he can say yet. He says he is a first generation and that

:01:53.:01:55.

his parents were immigrants. A lot of people I know who have come from

:01:56.:01:58.

immigrant backgrounds feel the same. Often people who are

:01:59.:02:04.

immigrants themselves feel really strongly about immigration, don't

:02:05.:02:10.

they? I have friends who I'm surprised not joining some of these

:02:11.:02:13.

right wing parties. It is all well to say some of this, but I think

:02:14.:02:17.

about history. I do consider myself to be British. How we went around

:02:18.:02:21.

the world and make people speak our language. I know lots of people who

:02:22.:02:25.

live in Spain who don't speak Spanish. I know people who have

:02:26.:02:28.

houses in the South of France who don't speak French. Me personally, I

:02:29.:02:32.

couldn't live in a country if I didn't speak the language, because I

:02:33.:02:38.

talk a lot. Thankfully, you are here tonight doing just that. Let's talk

:02:39.:02:42.

about the politics behind this. Immigration is going to be a huge

:02:43.:02:47.

issue with the European elections just next Thursday. As we've seen,

:02:48.:02:50.

you keep making `` making great strides. Many people feel the other

:02:51.:02:57.

party's are not addressing the concerns of immigration. White paper

:02:58.:03:02.

as a poll showing you keep way ahead of the other parties, and they will

:03:03.:03:06.

do well in the European elections. The Conservatives are suffering

:03:07.:03:10.

because people are defecting to UKIP and Nigel Farage. Sajid Javid is

:03:11.:03:15.

spelling out what is a tough message, but it is powerful coming

:03:16.:03:21.

from him, the sort of Pakistani son of a bus driver who has done well

:03:22.:03:25.

for himself. He has made millions and done very well, but he makes the

:03:26.:03:30.

point that he has no people who've been in the country for 50 years and

:03:31.:03:33.

cannot still speak English. He says you should notice speak English.

:03:34.:03:41.

Coming from him, that is more palatable coming from him then Nigel

:03:42.:03:45.

Farage David Cameron. Drivers to have a spy in cars. This is tracking

:03:46.:03:52.

technology which will be standard according to this article within the

:03:53.:03:55.

next ten years. If we're not prepared to have it in our car, we

:03:56.:03:59.

will be forced off the road or forced to pay higher insurance

:04:00.:04:06.

premiums. It will tell out insurance companies would at driving habits

:04:07.:04:12.

really are. When you speed or do something wrong, it will be

:04:13.:04:15.

recorded, and careful drivers will get lower premiums and risky drivers

:04:16.:04:19.

will get high premiums. People will get petrified of the idea of their

:04:20.:04:22.

movements being monitored in that way. You lack people object to

:04:23.:04:26.

telephone comedies having the information, but the other

:04:27.:04:30.

interesting thing is that a black box style technology will be fitted

:04:31.:04:34.

as standard to all new cars under EU regulations from October next year.

:04:35.:04:38.

The technology will be in the car already. I do know of some younger

:04:39.:04:42.

drivers who have had these boxes put in their cars by the insurance

:04:43.:04:46.

company in order to get a cheaper deal on the insurance. I want to

:04:47.:04:51.

make a confession. It is a driver's awareness course recently because I

:04:52.:04:57.

sped over a bridge. I did 27 on the 20. On the course, there were lots

:04:58.:05:01.

of people they're angry about the speed cameras and those sorts of

:05:02.:05:04.

things, but one thing I came away with is I drove a lot more carefully

:05:05.:05:07.

and safer since I went on that course. People say they enjoy those

:05:08.:05:16.

courses. Strange people. The Sunday Times, the top 1000 people are worth

:05:17.:05:26.

a record ?519 billion. That is equivalent to a third of the

:05:27.:05:28.

nation's annual gross domestic product. If you are in peak some of

:05:29.:05:32.

these figures that have come out of the annual Rich list that the Sunday

:05:33.:05:38.

Times publishes, it is be like 64 names in the top list have the

:05:39.:05:44.

equivalent wealth of the 30% poorest of the population. When I was

:05:45.:05:50.

younger, I used to be fascinated by this. I used to look and dream and

:05:51.:05:57.

thick wooden it be nice to be rich? ? Think, wouldn't it be nice? It

:05:58.:06:03.

makes me feel a bit angry about the gap between the rich and poor. That

:06:04.:06:06.

is all it does for me. The other thing it does tell you is that a lot

:06:07.:06:10.

of people busier people who've made their own money. It is not inherited

:06:11.:06:15.

wealth. In the past, a lot of the list was filled up with these

:06:16.:06:18.

people. Does that make you less angry? I'm not angry about rich

:06:19.:06:22.

people, I am angry that people who suffer and there are other people

:06:23.:06:27.

who could help to stop I know one woman does a lot of stuff with the

:06:28.:06:34.

money. To somebody like me, you say, how much money do you need to

:06:35.:06:37.

be happy? Bye`mac it is not about that any more. Reading figures like

:06:38.:06:44.

this yet again, the fact that the amount of wealth they hold in such a

:06:45.:06:49.

small number of people is growing so much. Will there be more pressure to

:06:50.:06:56.

tackle this tax wise? It is a great political story. It is just the hard

:06:57.:07:00.

facts in the story, but there is an amazing fact saying be healthiest!

:07:01.:07:04.

Wealthiest boughs and have seen their wealth surge by 15.4% in the

:07:05.:07:09.

last year. This is a time when most ordinary workers are likely to get a

:07:10.:07:14.

2% pay rise. It is astonishingly political story which is reflected,

:07:15.:07:18.

because Labour's message is, and this seems to be borne out by this,

:07:19.:07:22.

it is the ritual are benefiting from this upturn in economy, and the rest

:07:23.:07:27.

of the site. That is fascinating and playing into the narrative over the

:07:28.:07:31.

next year. It was benefiting from the upturn in the up `` economic

:07:32.:07:40.

circumstances? Carney sounds housing alarm. We know a lot of rich people

:07:41.:07:44.

are investing in broad in properties in the south`east, particularly

:07:45.:07:49.

London. This article says the housing market has deep problems and

:07:50.:07:53.

is the biggest risk to Britain's economic recovery. That is coming

:07:54.:07:56.

from the Governor of the Bank of England. It sounds like it could go

:07:57.:08:00.

down. You like I have a friend who plays around with the property

:08:01.:08:04.

market. He has a big portfolio. The only thing he has been talking about

:08:05.:08:08.

is selling and getting rid of as much as he can. He is not the sort

:08:09.:08:12.

of person who will do this without the gig subbing is going on. House

:08:13.:08:18.

prices are crazy. `` thinking something is going on. My generation

:08:19.:08:22.

are having trouble getting mortgages. Subbing has to give. We

:08:23.:08:29.

all need somewhere to live, but I think it has gotten out of control.

:08:30.:08:35.

What will this do with regards to interest rates? He is saying that

:08:36.:08:38.

the Bank of England needs to take some kind of action to take the heat

:08:39.:08:44.

out of this. Weigh the central part in this is that we need more houses.

:08:45.:08:49.

We all know that. That is the only way to start controlling prices. He

:08:50.:08:52.

is sounded alarm in saying it is critically about loan to value and

:08:53.:08:56.

how much we are borrowing against these houses. We don't think, and Mr

:08:57.:09:02.

Carney dozen big reds will go up, but after that, I could rise. The

:09:03.:09:08.

mortgage rules have tightened up now and mortgage companies are being

:09:09.:09:11.

more responsible and making it harder. It is not necessarily a

:09:12.:09:14.

disadvantage, but it is harder to take risky loans out because

:09:15.:09:19.

mortgage companies are being more responsible about what they land.

:09:20.:09:23.

A grim story. The Observer's main story, underneath that picture of

:09:24.:09:34.

Arsenal winning the FA Cup. MPs to probe Serco over sex assault claim.

:09:35.:09:39.

The company that does the private outsourcing, Government work. To be

:09:40.:09:43.

investigated by MPs after it was forced to disclose a report about a

:09:44.:09:50.

claim of sexual reports against one of its staff against a woman at

:09:51.:09:55.

Yarl's Wood detention centre. There has been a legal battle to get it

:09:56.:10:00.

out in the open? Very much so. They have been fighting to get it

:10:01.:10:04.

published. Private companies are taking over public sector services.

:10:05.:10:08.

This is a company that are potentially taking over services in

:10:09.:10:11.

other areas. I know something David feels strongly about. Passionate

:10:12.:10:18.

about this. Michael Gove announced yesterday that child protection

:10:19.:10:21.

services could be run and could be open to companies like Serco. You

:10:22.:10:27.

know, from where I come from, I do a lot of work with young people in

:10:28.:10:31.

care, it's wrong. When you hear stories like this where they are

:10:32.:10:34.

trying to cover`up. That is not to say local authorities haven't

:10:35.:10:37.

covered up abuse in the past. I don't want people profiting out of

:10:38.:10:43.

that. We might return to that story again. A lot to talk about. That is

:10:44.:10:48.

it from the papers this hour. There will be another selection of the

:10:49.:10:55.

front pages at 11.30pm. On BBC News at 11.00pm a report on the latest

:10:56.:11:03.

progress on Boko Haram. Coming up next, it's time for the film review.
