players on the tennis court on the day Amelie Mauresmo begins her role

:00:00.:00:00.

as Andy Murray's coach. That's all in 15 minutes. But first The Papers.

:00:00.:00:17.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to all the papers. With me is the

:00:18.:00:31.

trade minister Sir Digby Jones and broadcaster John. The metro

:00:32.:00:34.

dedicates the whole of its front page to the increasing pressure

:00:35.:00:38.

being put on Sepp Blatter to resign. The Telegraph warns that millions of

:00:39.:00:42.

over 50s could risk, their health as they follow new NHS guidance telling

:00:43.:00:44.

them to take statins. they follow new NHS guidance telling

:00:45.:00:46.

them The express goes with the they follow new NHS guidance telling

:00:47.:00:48.

them The express goes with same story, saying medics are at war over

:00:49.:00:53.

the usage and to issue statins to healthy people. While The Guardian

:00:54.:00:57.

says men in Asia are being kept as slaves to work on fishing boats in

:00:58.:01:00.

Thailand. The seafood they harvest is being sold to supermarkets,

:01:01.:01:04.

including Walmart and Tesco. The Daily Mail is leading on the fallout

:01:05.:01:08.

from a major backlog of passport applications. While the mirror is

:01:09.:01:13.

leading with Ofgem's calls for energy suppliers to cut costs for

:01:14.:01:17.

householders following a drop in the price of wholesale gas and

:01:18.:01:26.

electricity. We will start with the Telegraph, army cuts casts doubts on

:01:27.:01:29.

action abroad, it has been petit basset Riz in its campaign against

:01:30.:01:39.

army cuts. `` pretty the Severus. On the front, the Duke of Edinburgh,

:01:40.:01:45.

93, you know, happy birthday. He did say, I don't want anyone to wish me

:01:46.:01:53.

any happier returns. So shut up and get on with the army cuts! I think

:01:54.:02:07.

this is quite good lobbying. It is a service that is dangerously below

:02:08.:02:11.

strength, and what has happened is that they are all being cut so badly

:02:12.:02:16.

and deeply that the army right to say, if you cut us anymore after the

:02:17.:02:19.

general election, we can't fight your wars for you. The navy are

:02:20.:02:26.

already there, but if you add up the amalgam of the 1914 commemorations,

:02:27.:02:29.

the First World War seen as an army war, Afghanistan, although there

:02:30.:02:36.

were Royal Marines and navy medics, it is seen as an army war. The army

:02:37.:02:40.

do a really good PR job, and they are doing it again in the Telegraph

:02:41.:02:45.

today. My worry from this, and it is excellently put by one source, the

:02:46.:02:51.

Government is trying to blame the Army for failing to deliver on its

:02:52.:02:55.

drastic cuts to the defence budget. The real culprits are the ministers

:02:56.:02:58.

who have tried to implement an unrealistic programme without giving

:02:59.:03:04.

proper thought to the consequences of their actions. Politicians tend

:03:05.:03:10.

to say, we will go and do this, then they think, how are we going to do

:03:11.:03:13.

it? You're going to end up, Great Britain, with an army that does not

:03:14.:03:18.

have the people, a navy that does not have ships, and we will not be

:03:19.:03:22.

able to fulfil what politicians say, a very serious issue. Henry, better

:03:23.:03:29.

cooperation with other forces, we are a member of NATO, all trying to

:03:30.:03:33.

build the European fighter, we are going to be much more cohesive with

:03:34.:03:40.

other countries in putting forward a military deterrent, so cuts are in a

:03:41.:03:47.

`` inevitable, and they? You would think so, but this will be meat and

:03:48.:03:54.

drink to Government backbenchers. But it has to be seen as punching

:03:55.:03:57.

above its weight on the international scene, so when people

:03:58.:04:02.

look at the major powers in the world, the members of the Security

:04:03.:04:06.

Council, Britain has to have a very big army. That is what they are

:04:07.:04:10.

saying, but David Cameron, who has the responsibility to look at all of

:04:11.:04:13.

this and balance the books, they will be saying, we cannot afford all

:04:14.:04:18.

of this. I want to be able to say that William Hague is back there

:04:19.:04:21.

with Angelina Jolie trying to end rape as an act of war, or what we

:04:22.:04:28.

are doing in Syria, eastern Ukraine, but deep down, although Britain no

:04:29.:04:32.

longer has an empire, it wants to act as though it does. It is a

:04:33.:04:38.

difficult one for the Government. That is a very left wing view, to

:04:39.:04:43.

say to me, it is because we have not got an empire! It is because we have

:04:44.:04:48.

values of freedom and independence and choice. And equality! Some of

:04:49.:04:55.

these are good... That is why we do it, not because of empire. It is an

:04:56.:05:01.

overhang! Having a big strong army and air force is being part of seen

:05:02.:05:05.

as a colossus on the international scene. 25 or 30 years ago I agree

:05:06.:05:10.

with you... Gordon Brown and Tony Blair wanted to do this, Gordon

:05:11.:05:15.

Brown... If you see something happening which is against the

:05:16.:05:18.

values this nation polls, which has got nothing to do with empire and

:05:19.:05:24.

everything to do with treating human beings... Having a very large army

:05:25.:05:32.

is an overhang of being a great maritime nation. If you want your

:05:33.:05:36.

elected politicians of any party to stand up for the values that we

:05:37.:05:41.

espouse, don't expect them to do it if they have not got the guns and

:05:42.:05:45.

ships and tanks to do it. That is all I am saying. Sometimes these

:05:46.:05:49.

things are good, I supported intervention in Sierra Leone,

:05:50.:05:53.

absolutely. We could not do it today. It does not mean what I am

:05:54.:05:59.

saying is wrong. Time out, time`out! Let's talk about schools. Henry,

:06:00.:06:06.

Church of England schools will open doors to all, on the front of the

:06:07.:06:11.

Daily Telegraph. All eyes are on Birmingham because of the Trojan

:06:12.:06:15.

horse story, and the battle between the Education Secretary and the Home

:06:16.:06:19.

Secretary over extremism, and we know what Ofsted said about that.

:06:20.:06:23.

You can link this story to the Church of England beast in the Daily

:06:24.:06:26.

Telegraph tomorrow, and their chief education officer. `` peace. He

:06:27.:06:35.

wants to expand the number of primary places available, because

:06:36.:06:38.

there is going to be a boom in the number of places needed, something

:06:39.:06:43.

like 130,000, and Christians cannot expect preferential treatment. At

:06:44.:06:47.

the moment, if you want to get your child into a faith school, a

:06:48.:06:53.

Christian school, you try to be seen at church, the vicar knows about you

:06:54.:07:01.

and job more likely to get in. `` and you are more likely to get in.

:07:02.:07:05.

This reverend is now saying that is going to change and people of all

:07:06.:07:09.

faiths and none will be eligible for entry, their children will be able

:07:10.:07:15.

to go. A change in policy, Digby, that comes off the back of what we

:07:16.:07:20.

have seen in Birmingham and Ofsted. Is there a sense that the Church of

:07:21.:07:25.

England felt it had to do this? I don't know. What I would say that I

:07:26.:07:30.

think it is good politics with a small P. It is absolutely where they

:07:31.:07:36.

should be, basically saying, we are in society, community, we are not

:07:37.:07:41.

going to be judgment. That is so left wing! This is about Anglican

:07:42.:07:47.

values. Anglican values are not a right wing! There used to be. No,

:07:48.:07:58.

they are not! How judgemental! I think it is an excellent way, a

:07:59.:08:01.

counterpoint, saying, what you should be doing as a religious

:08:02.:08:09.

power, if that is right, community, that is a good word. What they

:08:10.:08:13.

should be doing is reaching out to everybody, opening up, and being

:08:14.:08:16.

seen as a force for good and inclusion, rather than as a bigoted

:08:17.:08:22.

isolationist thing. So I think it is quite good politics. I suppose you

:08:23.:08:29.

will be able to fulfil your core values and teach children according

:08:30.:08:33.

to the purposes that you were set up for... Years and years ago, this is

:08:34.:08:39.

second`hand, but inevitably Tony Blair used to go to Brompton oratory

:08:40.:08:43.

when he was Prime Minister, Catholic, but he did not do, as

:08:44.:08:49.

Alistair Campbell said, religion, and he got a letter from some senior

:08:50.:08:55.

Catholic saying, you are not Catholic. Of course, won't embarrass

:08:56.:08:59.

you, but I wonder what Jesus have thought! What is it that religions

:09:00.:09:09.

are there for? Sorry, Clive! We're going to go onto another story.

:09:10.:09:14.

Talking about religion, we are going to talk about football! Greg Dyke

:09:15.:09:23.

urges Sepp Blatter to go. We are talking about the Football

:09:24.:09:26.

Association chairman, Greg Dyke, who was out in Brazil, as is the FIFA

:09:27.:09:32.

football family, and Sepp Blatter, the president, who wants a further

:09:33.:09:37.

six or seven years, he's been told increasingly by some of the European

:09:38.:09:41.

football powers that he should go, that he has presided over the rot,

:09:42.:09:48.

that the Sunday Times story essentially has highlighted the

:09:49.:09:50.

problem with corruption in FIFA, and he has done nothing about it, and

:09:51.:09:54.

people are saying these superannuated and needs to go.

:09:55.:09:58.

However, he has a lot of support from developing nations, in the

:09:59.:10:04.

Middle East and Africa, who think he has taken a football to zones where

:10:05.:10:08.

it was not a major sport. He made sure the World Cup was taken to

:10:09.:10:12.

South Africa, and this is one of the reasons... That is where his power

:10:13.:10:17.

base is, with the developing countries, and effectively Greg Dyke

:10:18.:10:23.

said to Sepp Blatter, you played the race card yesterday, in claiming

:10:24.:10:26.

that the allegations against the Qatar bid of corruption and so forth

:10:27.:10:32.

were racist, and he got a standing ovation from the delegates, FIFA

:10:33.:10:37.

delegates from Europe. I think we are witnessing a schism, and it

:10:38.:10:42.

isn't about whether they are European, or Anglo`Saxon,

:10:43.:10:46.

footballers or associations. I think this is a difference in values,

:10:47.:10:53.

which is there is a different value about corruption, whatever that word

:10:54.:10:56.

may mean, about influence, about the politics of it, in Africa, in Latin

:10:57.:11:03.

America, than there is in Western Europe. Are you sure about that?

:11:04.:11:09.

Isn't that it is very subtle in Western Europe? It is all about

:11:10.:11:13.

lobbying, when they come to London, the red carpet is rolled out, no

:11:14.:11:21.

expense spared. I don't know any more than you but I would not think

:11:22.:11:25.

Sepp Blatter has got the brown paper envelope out and given something to

:11:26.:11:30.

the Football Federation. It doesn't work like that. And, if I may, just

:11:31.:11:35.

three cheers for democracy! One of the things the press does do in

:11:36.:11:40.

Western Europe is they investigate and that is how you get the Sunday

:11:41.:11:46.

Time story. All a saying is, you are reaching the schism, because he is

:11:47.:11:50.

playing this brilliantly, Sepp Blatter, because he is going to a

:11:51.:11:54.

defence set of values, and I choose my words carefully, a different set

:11:55.:11:57.

of values, and I will champion you, and they love him. And then the

:11:58.:12:01.

people who perhaps don't walk down that path are saying, we will not

:12:02.:12:06.

have this. You cannot call it corruption until it is alleged and

:12:07.:12:10.

I'm not going into the allegation, but the concept of one group of

:12:11.:12:14.

countries in football walking down a path that is utterly different to

:12:15.:12:17.

another group of countries, and somebody trying... Well, doing it

:12:18.:12:21.

brilliantly, actually, playing this off against each other. He calls

:12:22.:12:25.

people racist without a single shred of evidence! But if you do remember

:12:26.:12:30.

a few years ago when there was a huge football row, erases a row, in

:12:31.:12:36.

Italy, and he himself said, this is not racism, just sort it out with a

:12:37.:12:42.

handshake. `` a racism row. So his notion... I agree with you. It is a

:12:43.:12:51.

political issue and it is one man's sweetener. You tell that to Ken

:12:52.:12:57.

Clarke and The Bribery Act! You tell that to every businessman and

:12:58.:13:00.

businesswoman. A sweetener and you go to prison for it! Let's very

:13:01.:13:05.

quickly get onto the supermarket slave trade. This. I applaud The

:13:06.:13:13.

Guardian for this. It is journalism at its best. The only way you are

:13:14.:13:19.

going to stop whether it is slaves, awful conditions in textile mills in

:13:20.:13:22.

Bangladesh, the real way to stop this is to get the true customers,

:13:23.:13:26.

the supermarkets in the Western world, refusing to buy of these

:13:27.:13:33.

people. So this is fish and shrimp and fall is caught in the Far East

:13:34.:13:40.

by workers who are said she slaves. And then sold to supermarkets. Yes,

:13:41.:13:47.

and no matter what you try to do... They are essentially tricked. Bought

:13:48.:13:52.

and sold by about `` for about ?240. They can sometimes be in debt

:13:53.:13:56.

bondage for about 20 years and they could even be executed or killed at

:13:57.:14:01.

sea. It is shocking but the fish meal that they farm or manage to

:14:02.:14:06.

harvest ends up being used and ends up in the food chain and we end up

:14:07.:14:11.

buying it. And the real power of this is that the supermarkets are so

:14:12.:14:15.

powerful, they could stop this by just not buying it. I just have to

:14:16.:14:20.

say, Tesco has said, we regard slavery as completely unacceptable.

:14:21.:14:24.

We are working with one of the firms to make sure the supply chain is

:14:25.:14:28.

slavery free. Morrisons has said the same thing and the Co`op as well. So

:14:29.:14:33.

they are responding to this. The question is, will consumers vote

:14:34.:14:43.

with their feet or with price? Yes, but the real power comes with the

:14:44.:14:45.

retailers because they have the power of purchase. Thank you so

:14:46.:14:48.

much, guys. I am exhausted and I haven't said anything! It was meant

:14:49.:14:52.

to be like this. Thank you very much indeed! Stay with us. Much more

:14:53.:14:59.

coming up at the top of the hour. Certainly on that situation in

:15:00.:15:03.

Iraq, where militants have taken the second city. But now it is time for

:15:04.:15:05.

Sportsday. Good evening and welcome to

:15:06.:15:25.

Sportsday. UEFA make their voice heard of a number of European

:15:26.:15:30.

football chiefs urged Sepp Blatter to step down as FIFA

:15:31.:15:31.
