Open, and we will hear from Carl Froch and George Groves ahead of

:00:00.:00:00.

their huge rematch tomorrow night. Welcome to our lookahead at what the

:00:00.:00:27.

papers will be us tomorrow. Good evening to both of you. Let's have a

:00:28.:00:34.

look at some of the front pages. The Independent reports on the fact that

:00:35.:00:37.

a Google adviser is telling them that everything has changed again in

:00:38.:00:42.

Europe, following the new right to privacy ruling. Polling carried out

:00:43.:00:52.

for the Daily Telegraph suggest that the majority of those who recently

:00:53.:00:56.

voted for Ukip intend voting again for Ukip in the general election.

:00:57.:01:01.

The new leader of the Police Federation has told the Guardian

:01:02.:01:04.

that the days of scandal in his organisation must come to an end.

:01:05.:01:08.

House prices will continue soaring for at least another two years, that

:01:09.:01:11.

is the headline in the Daily Express. According to the Financial

:01:12.:01:15.

Times, the European Central bank next week is poised to cut interest

:01:16.:01:21.

rates and boost lending to small businesses. The Times reports that

:01:22.:01:29.

David Cameron has joined international calls for a woman

:01:30.:01:34.

sentenced to death for marrying to be reversed.

:01:35.:01:43.

On that last story, David Cameron adding his voice to a number of

:01:44.:01:48.

global voices condemning this. It is a shocking insight, isn't it, into

:01:49.:01:54.

what is going on in Sudan? I think it is part of a ground swell of

:01:55.:01:57.

sudden realisation and understanding that changes in the world our impact

:01:58.:02:05.

in particularly on women, who are somehow seen... It is about

:02:06.:02:07.

ownership, and what they can and can't do. I know this particular

:02:08.:02:12.

case is about apostasy and the fact that she is a Christian, and they

:02:13.:02:16.

say that because her father is a Muslim, she is a Muslim. But

:02:17.:02:22.

ultimately it is really about women becoming targets, right across not

:02:23.:02:28.

just the Islamic world, but you have seen the events in India today

:02:29.:02:32.

around the rape of those two girls. They are becoming targets in a very

:02:33.:02:35.

unpleasant and very sexist way, it seems to me. I know this is

:02:36.:02:40.

different to that, but the reason we are interested in it is because

:02:41.:02:45.

there is a sudden ground swell of feeling that this is all going too

:02:46.:02:49.

far, and that if you just sit back and say look it is over there, it is

:02:50.:02:53.

only a matter of time before it comes here. We have the murder of a

:02:54.:03:03.

woman in Pakistan as well this week. Think you are right about women.

:03:04.:03:10.

There was a report a few years ago, and it did make that point. There is

:03:11.:03:14.

another thing here about religious freedom, which is very much part of

:03:15.:03:19.

this story. The use of the language, and the religious freedom

:03:20.:03:25.

being a fundamental right, most of all it isn't. In China for example,

:03:26.:03:31.

it isn't. We have seen in Pakistan what happens to Christians, we know

:03:32.:03:36.

that in India they have just elected a Hindu nationalists. I think women

:03:37.:03:42.

are bearing the brunt of a lot of this stuff, which is horrific. But

:03:43.:03:48.

there is this fundamental tension between the West claiming that

:03:49.:03:53.

religion is a fundamental right, and in practice that is not being the

:03:54.:03:58.

case. There was an interesting article yesterday, saying that a

:03:59.:04:05.

fundamentalist family was visiting them from Pakistan, and his father

:04:06.:04:09.

would hide everything. He wanted to save them the distress of seeing

:04:10.:04:13.

everything. It is crazy, isn't it? Ultimately, whether or not there is

:04:14.:04:18.

a God, all of this is simply people interpreting stuff the way they want

:04:19.:04:24.

to interpret. This is one of the very few pictures we have been able

:04:25.:04:28.

to see. If you look carefully, you can actually see she is holding her

:04:29.:04:35.

newly born daughter. She gave birth to her daughter while she was

:04:36.:04:38.

shackled to the cell floor, according to reports. Times managed

:04:39.:04:46.

to get this picture from a local paper. The Independent picks up on a

:04:47.:04:54.

story today that moves it forward. This is the new privacy law, the

:04:55.:05:00.

Google privacy law, a total rethink of basic freedoms. That is according

:05:01.:05:05.

to an Oxford philosopher, who is charged with speaking and advising

:05:06.:05:10.

the search engine giant. Changes the rules in Europe, Google have always

:05:11.:05:18.

said that they are just a live rear, they just tell people how to get

:05:19.:05:23.

there. I think there will be a lot of contentious issues `` library.

:05:24.:05:30.

This is that questionnaire that Google have that you would have to

:05:31.:05:35.

fill in? You fill it in and then they make a judgement, and if you

:05:36.:05:39.

disagree with that then you have to go to authorities to find if they

:05:40.:05:54.

can convince Google. At the moment, it costs people a hell of a lot.

:05:55.:06:03.

Let's move on to the Telegraph. Ukip vote no flash in the pan. Those who

:06:04.:06:08.

vote the Ukip have often been branded as protest voters, and this

:06:09.:06:13.

survey shows that people do intend to vote at the next general

:06:14.:06:17.

election. This is an insight into what is going to happen next year.

:06:18.:06:22.

We have had a whole set of elections in the last week, but they were all

:06:23.:06:27.

protest votes, with a? No particular party did very well, labour was up

:06:28.:06:34.

2%. Ukip has come out of the back rooms `` Labour. I think Ukip are

:06:35.:06:39.

the obvious party of protest, for people like me, who voted for one of

:06:40.:06:43.

each, because we don't care. Politics is such a mess. My sort of

:06:44.:06:48.

get why people vote Ukip, although I wouldn't vote for them myself. We

:06:49.:06:56.

have other policies `` they have other policies, although we haven't

:06:57.:07:00.

seen them. I'm sure these people will vote for them, but they will

:07:01.:07:03.

require something more than a concentration on Europe. They will

:07:04.:07:09.

come under increasing scrutiny, what they? Nigel Farage jettisoned his

:07:10.:07:14.

policies, just beforehand, or said that they would have a rethink. Many

:07:15.:07:19.

of them seem very unpopular. Charging for the NHS is probably a

:07:20.:07:26.

no`no in most people's books. 37% of people were certain to vote, that is

:07:27.:07:31.

just a million people, 10% of what the Conservatives got last time

:07:32.:07:35.

around. 3% of the population. They are pushing it. This is a

:07:36.:07:40.

co`ordinated campaign, the polls are emission by one of their biggest

:07:41.:07:43.

financial backers, and we have the new by`election coming up on

:07:44.:07:50.

Saturday. `` the Newark by`election. I would be very surprised. There is

:07:51.:07:54.

a collapse in a lot of the fringe party votes, and Ukip got a lot of

:07:55.:08:00.

that. The rise of Ukip, and it certainly is that, I think we all

:08:01.:08:04.

agree with that, has put pressure on the other parties to look at some of

:08:05.:08:08.

the issues that they feel are winning Ukip votes, which is

:08:09.:08:14.

immigration. Inside the Times, on page two, a Tory call for a deep and

:08:15.:08:28.

splitting cabinet. There were tensions within the coalition about

:08:29.:08:35.

what the policies would be, but the Times seems to take us deeper into

:08:36.:08:40.

that. I think... The trouble is, they want a popular policy, that

:08:41.:08:46.

neutralises Ukip. Saying that they want to tighten controls of people

:08:47.:08:50.

coming in from Europe, but that is a fundamental part of what the

:08:51.:08:54.

European project is. They absolutely can't change it, so it is a

:08:55.:09:01.

pointless promise. We have the choice of delaying it by seven

:09:02.:09:05.

years, which some of our other, larger EU partners did, but we chose

:09:06.:09:10.

to open the doors. I have to say, the one thing that I keep saying,

:09:11.:09:14.

but I think is incredibly positive about all of this debate, and

:09:15.:09:18.

actually positive about Ukip, is that they have moved the emphasis

:09:19.:09:25.

from race and colour to numbers. It has become about the numbers of

:09:26.:09:30.

people at the door. I find that in a strange way much more heartening,

:09:31.:09:35.

when they are discussing numbers rather than where those numbers come

:09:36.:09:41.

from. Unfortunately, what they will do, is they will cut down the people

:09:42.:09:44.

who are coming in and paying for education, and bringing wealth into

:09:45.:09:49.

the country, to stop people complaining about EU migration.

:09:50.:09:55.

Another story, strained NHS misses target on cancer care for the first

:09:56.:10:00.

time. This is a warning coming from cancer care charities, isn't it? It

:10:01.:10:07.

is of concern, the Tories have to watch this stuff. They have tried to

:10:08.:10:12.

keep the budget, given all other budgets are being cut, higher. As we

:10:13.:10:18.

get closer to the election, the NHS is scrambling to find money, and if

:10:19.:10:23.

this is anything it is a canary in the coalmine effect, where people do

:10:24.:10:27.

worry that suddenly these all`important targets are being

:10:28.:10:32.

breached. The NHS is something very much at the heart of voters, isn't

:10:33.:10:36.

it? A want the problems to be addressed, they want these headlines

:10:37.:10:46.

to stop. There is one quip that the NHS is the only religion British

:10:47.:10:49.

people have. They don't like it when they get these waiting`list type

:10:50.:10:54.

headlines. The Guardian, no bullying or blathering. According to the new

:10:55.:11:00.

chief of the police Federation, after their drubbing from Theresa

:11:01.:11:08.

May the other week. There is a big difference between bullying and

:11:09.:11:14.

getting bladdered. The days of scandal, alleged bullying, and

:11:15.:11:17.

people getting bladdered on expenses. Getting bladdered on

:11:18.:11:22.

expenses is something journalists did until it was taken away from

:11:23.:11:26.

them by new technology, and the demand that you were sat on your

:11:27.:11:30.

desk all day. Who cares if they are getting bladdered on their expenses?

:11:31.:11:35.

I do care if they are bullying, even internally or externally. I think

:11:36.:11:40.

people would like to think that their taxes are being spent on a

:11:41.:11:45.

pint of lager down the pub, in all fairness, but bullying is a more

:11:46.:11:52.

serious scandal. I think it is interesting that the chief is not

:11:53.:11:56.

really the friends of the Guardian, given our role in various

:11:57.:11:58.

investigations, but here I think this is a concession. Theresa May

:11:59.:12:06.

dropped this bombshell, and it is suddenly a mea culpa. They accepted

:12:07.:12:13.

the fact, and tried to turn it over. Did they say how they would do

:12:14.:12:25.

that? Not really. How many times did they do it with vice squad in the

:12:26.:12:33.

seventies? Every single iteration of police in this great city has had an

:12:34.:12:38.

apology to make and they promise to give. I can't quite see how all of

:12:39.:12:43.

them could have kept those promises, if we still have promises with

:12:44.:12:47.

bullying. If they don't do it, the government said they would force

:12:48.:12:51.

them to do it. Promises made can easily be broken, but still, it is

:12:52.:12:57.

the police we are talking about. The Daily Express. Why did you look at

:12:58.:13:00.

me to this one? I know you are going to love this story. High fat yoghurt

:13:01.:13:10.

keeps you slim. All they have done is they have turned around an old

:13:11.:13:14.

story is that low`fat foods, especially yoghurts, are loaded with

:13:15.:13:20.

calories. It is a bit like eating your special breakfast cereals which

:13:21.:13:24.

claimed to be lower in fat, but when you look at the number of calories,

:13:25.:13:27.

they are the same as the high fat cereals, simply because they are

:13:28.:13:33.

loaded with sugar. To say high fat yoghurt keeps you slim, is simply to

:13:34.:13:36.

say you are having less sugar and more of the natural ingredients. I

:13:37.:13:43.

know these stories and nor you, but there is we are becoming acutely

:13:44.:13:48.

aware and paranoid about clarity of labelling, what it is we are

:13:49.:13:56.

actually eating `` annoy. Yesterday we had the fat girls, the fattest

:13:57.:14:00.

girls in Europe, and you don't see fat old people, do you? Whatever

:14:01.:14:07.

they are going to cost us, they have finished doing that because they are

:14:08.:14:10.

dead when they are 60. Don't worry about obesity, they will be off...

:14:11.:14:30.

We are sick of being Ms Glad in the sense of things like this. You think

:14:31.:14:42.

you are eating healthy. What each of us is individual and we metabolise

:14:43.:14:46.

different food differently. There can't be a coverall. You have to

:14:47.:14:50.

find out for yourself. A bit like parenting. You have to take yourself

:14:51.:14:56.

in hand. I'm just going to cover myself. During that statement.

:14:57.:15:05.

Always a pleasure, many thanks for coming in and taking us through the

:15:06.:15:08.

papers. Do stay with us here on it is in use. At midnight, a big rise

:15:09.:15:14.

in the number of illegal migrants coming to Britain. Coming up,

:15:15.:15:19.

Sportsday. Welcome to Sportsday. The headlines

:15:20.:15:37.

this evening. It mission accomplished at Wembley as England

:15:38.:15:40.

constantly win their World Cup warmup against Peru.
