succeeding Tim Sherwood. It will also tell you how Andy Murray got on

:00:00.:00:00.

in the French Open. That is all in Sportsday in 15 minutes.

:00:00.:00:15.

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

:00:16.:00:20.

us tomorrow. With me are psychotherapist and writer Philippa

:00:21.:00:23.

Perry and Simon Watkins from the Mail on Sunday. Pretty much all the

:00:24.:00:29.

front pages are in. The Financial Times carries a warning from the

:00:30.:00:32.

head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, that delays to banking reforms risk

:00:33.:00:37.

destabilising the global economy. An Egyptian soldier is pictured

:00:38.:00:40.

guarding a polling station on the front of the Independent. But it

:00:41.:00:44.

leads on what it calls the "botched coup against Clegg."

:00:45.:00:47.

The Metro has more detail from Rolf Harris's court case. Mr Harris and

:00:48.:00:51.

his daughter Bindi are also pictured on the front of The Daily Express.

:00:52.:00:55.

But it headlines that ?30 million pounds a year of child benefits is

:00:56.:01:00.

sent abroad. The Daily Telegraph reports on new

:01:01.:01:03.

guidance that a third of the population should be sent to state`

:01:04.:01:06.

funded slimming classes. That story is also on the front of

:01:07.:01:10.

the Daily Mail. And finally The Guardian reports on

:01:11.:01:13.

the rising tide of race prejudice across Britain. We are going to

:01:14.:01:24.

start with a story about wanting from the paper to David Cameron we

:01:25.:01:30.

are seeing red. By the ago, we do paper told you, the Prime Minister

:01:31.:01:34.

that EU immigration must be curbed after boat is devastating verdict.

:01:35.:01:38.

Now it is time to get your finger out. I hope that the main parties

:01:39.:01:45.

don't capitulate to this sort of pressure, actually. But it sounds

:01:46.:01:51.

like Cameron is capitulating with his two big, too bossy, to

:01:52.:01:54.

interfering. It sounds a little bit like a toddler. I feel like it is

:01:55.:01:59.

too much like UKIP rhetoric to meet rather than anything else. It is so

:02:00.:02:09.

simplistic. When we are in a sticky situation, financially. When we are

:02:10.:02:15.

suffering austerities to get, let's run away from Europe, let's blame

:02:16.:02:21.

the immigrants, blame the EU. When actually, rather than finding things

:02:22.:02:29.

to project our fear and blame onto, we should be thinking about how to

:02:30.:02:34.

make more jobs. Growth is a big issue but the fact is what can

:02:35.:02:40.

actually David Cameron do about immigration? It is fundamental to

:02:41.:02:51.

the whole European market, capital and business and with that comes

:02:52.:02:54.

free movement of people. Some of them have gone out of the country

:02:55.:02:57.

and are still claiming their benefits. We will discuss that later

:02:58.:03:04.

on. We forget that, deadly? Just as immigrants can come here, we can go

:03:05.:03:08.

over there. There are many thousands of Britons abroad. There is very

:03:09.:03:15.

little you can do about this. This has been the problem he has put

:03:16.:03:17.

himself in. He has been making pledges are the immigration when a

:03:18.:03:22.

fundamental part of it is simply out of his control. Just as another

:03:23.:03:32.

point from the business community, the regard the EU is extremely

:03:33.:03:41.

beneficial. They regarded as being... Bringing skills in. The

:03:42.:03:43.

idea that it is automatically a negative economy is to say the

:03:44.:03:48.

least, arguable. But Villa Park, UKIP have moved attack on this. They

:03:49.:03:55.

are ignoring the economic argument because all the data seems to

:03:56.:04:00.

suggest that migrants actually help the economy. What you can's argument

:04:01.:04:03.

seems to be now is what it does on another level and that is social

:04:04.:04:04.

cohesion. It is causing problems for cohesion. It is

:04:05.:04:10.

local councils are having to do with 150 languages in a school for

:04:11.:04:13.

instance. That is you can's argument. Does that have any

:04:14.:04:16.

residents for the majority of people? What UKIP is doing is up

:04:17.:04:26.

fear. Fear is an emotion that grabs you and they are sort of stirring it

:04:27.:04:33.

up and then using it to say, I am making is very frightened but then

:04:34.:04:36.

vote for us and then you won't have to be frightened any longer. It is

:04:37.:04:40.

just fear mongering. We are giving so much attention to UKIP and it

:04:41.:04:46.

feeds our addiction to fear as well. We like the drama of it. There's not

:04:47.:04:53.

that much that is happening compared to the fuss we are making about it.

:04:54.:04:59.

The Greens increased their seats by 50% in the EU and I don't see all

:05:00.:05:03.

the headlines being about that. UKIP is just sort of a story worthy

:05:04.:05:11.

because they do seem like, not a very serious party. That of very

:05:12.:05:17.

Brussels are leaving tonight, Brussels are leaving tonight,

:05:18.:05:23.

meeting tonight. The fact is, some of these parties, they have made

:05:24.:05:30.

inroads but they are not wiping the floor with the rest of the European

:05:31.:05:36.

parties and the pro`European parties are still very much in the

:05:37.:05:41.

ascendant. One of the interesting things about the European elections

:05:42.:05:50.

in the UK, is that turnout was about 36%. I think very roughly, UKIP

:05:51.:05:54.

vote, which one would have thought if you're a UKIP supporter, this is

:05:55.:05:57.

the one election you would turn out for. They would have had a better

:05:58.:06:03.

can then other parties. And they got about 25% of the vote. That

:06:04.:06:06.

represents something like 10% of the British population. They voted UKIP.

:06:07.:06:15.

There is a risk that we get a bit of proportion the idea that there has

:06:16.:06:19.

been a sleeping UKIP vote across the UK. It has been dramatic in lots of

:06:20.:06:23.

ways. I think we are more addicted to the drama of it and it actually

:06:24.:06:29.

being that significant. Interesting. You could did not do very well in

:06:30.:06:34.

London. Indeed. It is interesting that point about the fear of

:06:35.:06:38.

something other and actually, oddly, London is where will one can see the

:06:39.:06:42.

melting pot that is modern Britain more than anywhere else. The

:06:43.:06:46.

syllabus performances of UKIP have been in part of the country where,

:06:47.:06:54.

you do not see immigration, it be that melting pot. Those other parts

:06:55.:06:57.

of the country that have done very well for UKIP. Very interesting. The

:06:58.:07:04.

front of the times, Lib Dems consumed by infighting. Nick Clegg,

:07:05.:07:12.

the party to put out very swiftly a refutation of the suggestion that he

:07:13.:07:18.

was willing to stand down. This is going to sound like a taking a cheap

:07:19.:07:21.

shot but I am not. I think that surely, he considered standing

:07:22.:07:26.

down. It would be inconceivable if he didn't. The idea that it never

:07:27.:07:32.

crossed his mind I find incredible. But what I think is intriguing about

:07:33.:07:37.

this and we talked earlier about the poll that was done by Lord block

:07:38.:07:41.

shot which has caused some rows inside the Lib Dems. It was seen as

:07:42.:07:46.

destabilising Nick Clegg. And here we have Lady Williams saying that

:07:47.:07:51.

she felt she believed he had considered resigning. This feels

:07:52.:07:55.

like the beginning of a kind of rot. What is this kind of thing begins in

:07:56.:07:58.

a political party, it is very hard to stop it. There a danger for the

:07:59.:08:02.

Lib Dems that becomes self fulfilling that the row just builds

:08:03.:08:06.

because how you come something like this down. And it seems a relevant

:08:07.:08:12.

that leading Williams had actually misinterpreted remarks that Nick

:08:13.:08:15.

Clegg made which was that he would stand down if he felt he was hurting

:08:16.:08:19.

the party. And he said he does not think he is so he didn't say he

:08:20.:08:25.

would stand down. She misinterpreted what he said. But that doesn't

:08:26.:08:30.

matter. No. It was that the bulk of the Lib Dems that if it did got his

:08:31.:08:35.

mind, it would be extraordinary. One would be rather shocked. Is it

:08:36.:08:46.

really all about the leader? Is that about changing your mind on tuition

:08:47.:08:54.

fees? Is it about being with the left party before the election and

:08:55.:08:57.

then moving the other weight. That was his big mistake. In the

:08:58.:09:05.

cartoons, he has been shown up as being under Cameron's farm. That has

:09:06.:09:11.

made him a bit of a laughing stock. Whether he is or not, I do not know

:09:12.:09:14.

but that is how he is portrayed so of it in the media. And through

:09:15.:09:20.

satirical magazines and what have you. Whereas, Vince cable is shown

:09:21.:09:29.

as standing up to David Cameron. But he is the underdog at the moment,

:09:30.:09:32.

even though he is the leader so that will make him popular again with the

:09:33.:09:37.

British public. OK. Let's stay with the Daily Mail. Weight Watchers free

:09:38.:09:44.

on the NHS. GPs to prescribe slimming courses for obese patients.

:09:45.:09:49.

The trouble is with how we have got used to thinking about medicine and

:09:50.:09:53.

the NHS is that we tend to think that is a magic will, a pill for

:09:54.:09:58.

everything. We don't think we have to actually do any work or any

:09:59.:10:05.

preventive managed `` measures to maintain our health. We have a

:10:06.:10:08.

passive idea of it may be because we have had 50 years of the NHS that

:10:09.:10:12.

has been looking after so well that we have got very passive any idea of

:10:13.:10:18.

our health. Actually, people eat too much, maybe I am speaking for myself

:10:19.:10:23.

but on the whole, people eat too much in order to soothe themselves.

:10:24.:10:28.

To make up for a lack of contact with other people in their lives. If

:10:29.:10:33.

you feel you have avoided, it is quite nice just to stuff it with

:10:34.:10:37.

food. The good thing about the group like Weight Watchers is that it

:10:38.:10:41.

gives you contact, it gives you support and so you are far more

:10:42.:10:46.

likely to lose weight if you do join such a group. I hope my GP

:10:47.:10:52.

prescribes it for me because I think it would be alien. So you think it

:10:53.:10:57.

is a good idea? It should be on the NHS was yellow it should be on the

:10:58.:11:01.

NHS. It is so much better than waiting for someone to be ill then

:11:02.:11:06.

you have to medicalise. This is way of preventing complications that

:11:07.:11:13.

arise due to being overweight. Should the British taxpayer, through

:11:14.:11:17.

the NHS, be paying for people who are too busy stuffing cakes and

:11:18.:11:24.

biscuits and what ever or have some kind of weight problem? I am

:11:25.:11:30.

probably with Philip on this. We have got weight, health in this

:11:31.:11:36.

country. We should regard this as a health problem and not something

:11:37.:11:42.

that, it is just people 's fault. I think it is reasonable for NHS money

:11:43.:11:45.

to be spent trying to address that. In the long run, it will save NHS

:11:46.:11:50.

money. If we can adjust the agree to which we have an obesity problem, it

:11:51.:11:53.

will save money for the NHS and the like. Whether Weight Watchers is the

:11:54.:11:57.

perfect solution I do not know. I do not know enough about how effective

:11:58.:12:01.

it is. I have to say, I googled this issue just before we came on. There

:12:02.:12:09.

were some research that was quite positive about Weight Watchers being

:12:10.:12:13.

effective. Not something to dismiss, I think. It is actually very good

:12:14.:12:17.

fear health. If you have regular contact with a group of people, it

:12:18.:12:21.

does boost your immune system. Even if you don't lose weight and cause

:12:22.:12:26.

you may be have no control over your appetite or something, it might

:12:27.:12:29.

still be beneficial. I wish there was more of these health groups,

:12:30.:12:35.

smoking group, an anger management group that are also paid for by the

:12:36.:12:42.

state because I feel as though they would save us money in the long run

:12:43.:12:45.

and make for a happier population. Very interesting. It go to the

:12:46.:12:54.

Guardian. Capitalism is doomed. If ethics vanish say Mark Carney

:12:55.:12:58.

Stockley this is part of a conference taking place with many of

:12:59.:13:07.

the financial sector including Mike on `` Mark Carney. The headline is

:13:08.:13:16.

quite personal. I think a lot of the pushback was coming from the

:13:17.:13:22.

financial services industry. Against regulatory change. A lot of people

:13:23.:13:25.

in the world regard regular treat pressure as something that is

:13:26.:13:34.

anticapitalist when in actual fact, capitalism needs to be saved from

:13:35.:13:36.

itself in some circumstances by having some revelatory pressures

:13:37.:13:38.

placed on it. If it is to survive. to you? It makes a lot of sense to

:13:39.:13:58.

me. We all need regulating, actually. If I can get away with

:13:59.:14:04.

parking on a double yellow line because the wardens never go there,

:14:05.:14:07.

I will do it because I am corruptible. I won't see the double

:14:08.:14:14.

yellow lines and think, oh, I mustn't park that even though the

:14:15.:14:18.

wardens never come here. I will park there. And, I don't think it is any

:14:19.:14:23.

different if you are a banker and you can get away with stuff that

:14:24.:14:27.

benefits you, you will do it if no one taps you on the shoulder. If

:14:28.:14:30.

someone taps you on the shoulder, if the warden is there, we will have

:14:31.:14:39.

proper regulation. We are all susceptible to being corrupted. I

:14:40.:14:43.

don't think bankers or capitalist are any different. We need this

:14:44.:14:48.

regulation and we needed it five years ago. I think a lot of people

:14:49.:14:54.

will be surprised that five years on after the crash, the kind of

:14:55.:14:57.

regulation or the kind of smart regulation people have been calling

:14:58.:15:00.

for, it doesn't seem to have been implemented. We go to the Guardian.

:15:01.:15:07.

The front page. Google is launching smart watches. We are still in the

:15:08.:15:16.

middle of this technological revolution. We have only just

:15:17.:15:23.

started. Indeed. That is where these tech companies are going. Bringing

:15:24.:15:27.

technology more integrated into your life in some way. I am still amazed

:15:28.:15:33.

by the revolution we have had with touchscreen up and tablets. I think

:15:34.:15:40.

they have been a substantial shift. Bringing them into glasses and

:15:41.:15:43.

watches, it is clearly the next step. I have not tried the glasses,

:15:44.:15:52.

I believe you had they made a lot of sense. Luna the guy who lent them to

:15:53.:16:00.

me had to wrestle them from me. `` the guy. Someone told me that people

:16:01.:16:08.

don't like to wear stuff. That's right. Since we have got the phones,

:16:09.:16:16.

we have ditched the watch. We run out of time. Simon and Philip, it

:16:17.:16:21.

has been great having you, many thanks. `` we have run out of time.

:16:22.:16:27.

At the top of the hour we have more of the meeting of the European

:16:28.:16:31.

leaders in Brussels to work out how best to deal with UKIP and the like.

:16:32.:16:33.

Now, it is time for Sportsday. Hello and welcome to Sportsday with

:16:34.:16:50.

me, Will Perry. The headlines tonight: Scotland's friendly against

:16:51.:16:52.

Nigeria tomorrow is highlighted for potential match fixing.

:16:53.:16:57.

Mouricio Pottechetino leaves Southampton to become the new
