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


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


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


trade minister Sir Digby Jones and broadcaster John. The metro


dedicates the whole of its front page to the increasing pressure


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


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


them to take statins. they follow new NHS guidance telling


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


householders following a drop in the price of wholesale gas and


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


who have tried to implement an unrealistic programme without giving


proper thought to the consequences of their actions. Politicians tend


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


above its weight on the international scene, so when people


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


things are good, I supported intervention in Sierra Leone,


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


wants to expand the number of primary places available, because


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


that the Sunday Times story essentially has highlighted the


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


people are saying these superannuated and needs to go.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Sportsday. Good evening and welcome to


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


football chiefs urged Sepp Blatter to step down as FIFA
