Brendan Rodgers new contract with Liverpool. That's all in Sportsday

:00:00.:00:00.

in 15 minutes after The Papers. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:18.

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

:00:19.:00:22.

journalist and blogger Susie Boniface, aka the Fleet Street Fox,

:00:23.:00:25.

and Kiran Stacey, political correspondent for the Financial

:00:26.:00:32.

Times. Good evening to you both. Before we speak to them let's have a

:00:33.:00:37.

preview of the front pages. The Financial Times says David Cameron

:00:38.:00:40.

has embarked on a diplomatic offensive to persuade European

:00:41.:00:45.

leaders to change course on the EU. There is Nigel Farage, pictured with

:00:46.:00:50.

an empty pint glass on his head during celebrations, that's in The

:00:51.:00:53.

Telegraph. It reports business leaders are calling for a new deal

:00:54.:00:56.

with Europe. The Guardian pictures Nick Clegg and

:00:57.:01:00.

questions whether he is leading the Liberal Democrats to a wipe`out.

:01:01.:01:06.

The Times reports UKIP is step up its assault on Labour's heartlands.

:01:07.:01:12.

The Scotsman says recriminations flew after UKIP won its first

:01:13.:01:16.

European seat in Scotland. Finally The Express offers seven

:01:17.:01:20.

golden rules to help people fight Alzheimer's.

:01:21.:01:24.

There is some other news on the front pages tomorrow but they're

:01:25.:01:27.

dominated by the fallout of the European elections. Good evening to

:01:28.:01:30.

you both. Let's start with The Guardian. It focuses there on a very

:01:31.:01:38.

pale`faced, red`eyed rather depressed looking Nick Clegg. That's

:01:39.:01:43.

a snap taken during interviews he did today with political

:01:44.:01:47.

correspondents, including our own Vicky Young. It was an honest,

:01:48.:01:51.

upfront interview but refusing to go. More pressure seems to be on

:01:52.:01:56.

according to a poll they've got their hands on. Yeah, the Lib Dems I

:01:57.:02:00.

think have said this poll, they're denying it's not true, but the poll

:02:01.:02:05.

says that Nick Clegg could lose his seat in the next general election

:02:06.:02:11.

which is astonishing, it's been Liberal Democrat for a long time,

:02:12.:02:14.

Tory before that. What's interesting more than anything else is the issue

:02:15.:02:17.

about Nick Clegg refusing to go, how long is he going to refuse to go?

:02:18.:02:22.

How long can he keep saying, no, I am not going to go, everything is

:02:23.:02:29.

fine, stop asking me. It becomes a self`fulfilling prophecy and he

:02:30.:02:31.

becomes more of a loser than he looks today. If he can turn it

:02:32.:02:34.

around tomorrow he can survive it. If this continues for a few days...

:02:35.:02:38.

Presumably he can keep saying that until a senior member of his party

:02:39.:02:43.

says it's time to go? Nobody senior has come out. That's really

:02:44.:02:47.

important actually. You have people like Tim Farron, the party

:02:48.:02:52.

President, he is the man the grass roots look to for moral guidance a

:02:53.:02:56.

lot of the time. He has defended Nick Clegg very quickly. He has

:02:57.:02:59.

right on the front foot and said this is our man. Clegg is being

:03:00.:03:04.

protected by a couple of things, there is only a year to go to the

:03:05.:03:07.

election so most candidates would rather wait until after 2015 if

:03:08.:03:11.

they're going to step in at all. The only one who might step in as an

:03:12.:03:15.

interim is Vince Cable who obviously has a lot of popularity and a

:03:16.:03:20.

personality and a public persona of his own, he is in China at the

:03:21.:03:23.

moment, you can read into that what you want. He is not back here

:03:24.:03:26.

plotting. I have been speaking to some of the people who are

:03:27.:03:30.

disgruntled with Nick Clegg in the party itself. They say part of the

:03:31.:03:33.

problem is there is a reshuffle coming up. There is a lot of people

:03:34.:03:37.

sitting on their hands thinking I might get a Ministerial job for the

:03:38.:03:40.

last few months of Government, let's ride this out. But if these polls

:03:41.:03:45.

turn out to be true, The Guardian has this poll suggesting four

:03:46.:03:49.

well`known Lib Dems, including Nick Clegg, might get beaten heavily in

:03:50.:03:53.

the next general election, if more MPs start thinking I might lose my

:03:54.:03:56.

seat here, we have no other option, we have to get rid of him, then the

:03:57.:04:00.

pressure is going to mount for senior people to say, sorry, we did

:04:01.:04:04.

back you, but now the rest of the party changed its mind. Even if you

:04:05.:04:08.

don't just treat it as a way of MPs playing the numbers and deciding

:04:09.:04:12.

what's best for themselves, it's almost indisputable in the country

:04:13.:04:15.

most people you talk to saying Nick Clegg is toxic as far as most voters

:04:16.:04:19.

are concerneden you have to dump him, be `` are concerned and you

:04:20.:04:23.

have to dump him and be ruthless at some point. The Liberal Democrats

:04:24.:04:26.

have come out talking in response to that article. A spokesman has told

:04:27.:04:30.

the BBC, we have no idea where this polling comes from but it's been

:04:31.:04:33.

commissioned and leaked for political purposes. It bears no

:04:34.:04:37.

relation to the result we saw on Thursday where the Liberal Democrats

:04:38.:04:44.

secured 38. 7% of the vote across Sheffield Hallam. That was obviously

:04:45.:04:46.

ahead of Labour and the Conservatives. Let's move on. There

:04:47.:04:49.

is a headline that one senior politician, namely our Prime

:04:50.:04:53.

Minister, might be pleased to read tomorrow, because this is a message

:04:54.:04:57.

that he has been trying to get through today, all day, that he has

:04:58.:05:01.

heard the message on the EU. The headline in the Financial Times:

:05:02.:05:07.

Cameron urges EU leaders to change tack after populist route. We are

:05:08.:05:11.

getting some insight into how David Cameron is going to handle this. ? A

:05:12.:05:15.

lot of ways the result wams really good for David Cameron. `` was

:05:16.:05:20.

really good for David Cameron. It would have beaten Labour into second

:05:21.:05:24.

had it not been for what happened in London. And what's happened in

:05:25.:05:28.

Brussels is that you have a load of Eurosceptic parties come in and

:05:29.:05:30.

there will be a lot of other national leaders now no longer going

:05:31.:05:33.

to Brussels saying David Cameron why are you asking for all these powers

:05:34.:05:37.

back, what are you talking about? Now they know because they've got it

:05:38.:05:40.

in their own country, they're having to deal with a similar rise in

:05:41.:05:43.

Euroscept sichl so they're more likely to be on board when he says

:05:44.:05:46.

we need to change freedom of movement. He is going to be under

:05:47.:05:49.

pressure to bring the referendum forward though. He said 2017. He can

:05:50.:05:54.

hold that line. What he is going to be under prepressure on is how much

:05:55.:05:58.

is he going to be able to renegotiate. It starts tomorrow. The

:05:59.:06:02.

first bit of the renegotiation, not really part of the renegotiation but

:06:03.:06:06.

him trying to change Brussels is he doesn't want a man called Jean

:06:07.:06:12.

Claude, lined up to be head of the commission which is the most

:06:13.:06:16.

powerful body in Brussels. He is pro`federalist, pro`EU this man. The

:06:17.:06:20.

Brits don't like him very much. Now can Cameron go around the key people

:06:21.:06:24.

and Angela Merkel being the key, of course, and convince her not to back

:06:25.:06:29.

this man for the job? Actually, our reporters are suggesting that she's

:06:30.:06:32.

already made her mind up and she will back him. Now if that happens

:06:33.:06:36.

that suggests that maybe David Cameron isn't succeeding as much as

:06:37.:06:40.

he might want to in winning his battles in Brussels which are going

:06:41.:06:50.

to be absolutely key for him. Let's move on to the Daily Telegraph cos

:06:51.:06:54.

we have found out a bit more about Nigel Farage thanks to his wife? The

:06:55.:07:00.

political correspondent in the Telegraph. This is interesting,

:07:01.:07:05.

putting flesh on the bones of the man we know as the kind of person

:07:06.:07:09.

who has his photograph taken in the pub with a pint glass on his head.

:07:10.:07:16.

He should tip it upside down, if he is doing it properly. Somebody has

:07:17.:07:21.

managed to buttonhole his wife and get some in formation out of her.

:07:22.:07:31.

She says he is computer literate. Smokes and drinks too much and does

:07:32.:07:35.

not eat properly. Considering the number of young dads who have a big

:07:36.:07:43.

thing of being photographed with their children and doing the school

:07:44.:07:47.

runs, she says there is not much time for family life that we watch

:07:48.:07:52.

him on the television when we want to see him. I am not sure he will be

:07:53.:07:55.

upset about that will stop man of upset about that will stop man of

:07:56.:08:02.

the people. His supporters are a lot older than that of other parties.

:08:03.:08:07.

You don't want to see your children, you want to see them when

:08:08.:08:16.

they have grown up a bit. There are other stories in tomorrow's papers.

:08:17.:08:23.

Let's move on to the times. Picture of Nigel Farage again on the front

:08:24.:08:26.

page. The story to the right hand side will stop two thirds of convict

:08:27.:08:35.

sons face a life of crime. Research has suggested. This does not

:08:36.:08:39.

surprise me because your parents are surprise me because your parents are

:08:40.:08:45.

your ears. You learn how to get through life from your parents. They

:08:46.:08:51.

say they have done this research, but the rest of the story is

:08:52.:08:56.

complaining about Barnardos saying nobody elects this data. So how did

:08:57.:09:03.

they do the research to find this out in the first place gesture

:09:04.:09:07.

marked lower down it says if you have a parent in jail, home can be

:09:08.:09:09.

chaotic because one parent is left chaotic because one parent is left

:09:10.:09:14.

behind to cope and schools don't know. Of course, one is struggling

:09:15.:09:20.

emotionally and financially. A emotionally and financially. A

:09:21.:09:22.

degree of not telling other people degree of not telling other people

:09:23.:09:26.

what is going on and it is not the best way to raise children. What it

:09:27.:09:31.

also gives you insight into is the impact risen has on the rest of the

:09:32.:09:35.

family, who also suffer for crimes they were not involved in. What

:09:36.:09:42.

register of children whose parents register of children whose parents

:09:43.:09:46.

are in jail. It smacks a bit of buttonholing children of children of

:09:47.:09:54.

convicts so they are different. But they are different, maybe they do

:09:55.:09:58.

maybe identifying them in the first maybe identifying them in the first

:09:59.:10:02.

place is not a bad way to start. A lot of it is white collar fraud,

:10:03.:10:09.

driving points, others are children of murderers. It is different. I

:10:10.:10:14.

think it is more about problem families and the fact people cannot

:10:15.:10:18.

necessarily get away from a difficult life. There are lots of

:10:19.:10:24.

data points the authorities have two identify problem families and they

:10:25.:10:32.

are starting to get on top of it. If an A department has somebody come

:10:33.:10:38.

in with a stab wound, they alert social services. If you have that

:10:39.:10:43.

information, obviously there are issues about how much you pass

:10:44.:10:47.

between services, but I can see why they want to go in that direction.

:10:48.:10:55.

You will be back at 11:30pm. But for now, thanks for joining us. Coming

:10:56.:11:02.

up on BBC News, we have the sport, the latest headlines at 11pm,

:11:03.:11:07.

including more on the fallout of UKIP 's macro success at the

:11:08.:11:08.

European elections. But now we have European elections. But now we have

:11:09.:11:12.

the sport. Hello and welcome to Sportsday. The

:11:13.:11:25.

headlines: Backing Brendan Rodgers ` Liverpool give their manager a new,

:11:26.:11:27.

long`term contract after finishing as runners up in the Premier League.

:11:28.:11:32.

A shock for Stan `
