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


us tomorrow. With me are political correspondent James Millar from the


Sunday Post and writer and broadcaster Shyama Perera. The lead


in The Independent is the nomination of Jean Claude Juncker as President


of the European Commission, its headline is "Cameron crushed and UK


edges closer to an EU exit". The Times has something similar `


along with music fans having fun in the mud at Glastonbury.


The FT simply has "Cameron suffers defeat on Juncker" ...and the very


same Glastonbury picture. The Daily Mail's main story says


millions of savers face weeks in limbo as they try to invest in the


new SuperISA, which comes in on July first.


The Express reports that new research says sleeping is the key to


battling dementia. And finally The Sun claims a school


is furious after a seven year old pupil mimicked his hero Luis Suarez


by biting a classmate. So let's begin... Let's start with the story


that is on the front pages of many papers tomorrow, the nomination of


the Jean`Claude Juncker as the European Commission president. Many


of them are going with the story of David Cameron's defeat and they are


indicating that it is a step closer to our exit from the European


Union. It is the most popular story around. It is remarkable how similar


the languages in all the papers. A crushing defeat for the Prime


Minister, moving closer to an exit from the European Union etc. . I am


not sure if they are right. I'm not sure if we are closer to a exit ``


on exit. Could he not just go ahead and vote with everyone else? He got


himself in a bit of a pickle to say the least. He should have seen that


everyone else in Europe was not about to back down. Perhaps he


didn't want to be isolated because it makes him look strong and anti`


European for his own backbenchers. Ed Miliband has been critical. He


didn't want Jean`Claude Juncker either. He's calling him the toxic


Prime Minister. The timing could not be worse. I think he is just out in


the cold at many different levels this week. This is the nail in the


coffin of his relationship projections with the European Union.


He comes across as billy no`mates. Do you think he should've come about


it differently? Of course. Couldn't he have found another candidate to


offer? Something positive to offer? I don't know who else there was.


They wanted Christine LaGarde from the IMF but the French president


wouldn't have her. She is an opponent that may stand against him


sometime in the future. I think it is quite fun, if we can get away


from David Cameron and look at Juncker, he is a renegade and I kind


of see him as a George Brown figure in Europe. I can imagine him falling


over as he staggers him from his cognac breakfast. I can feel a lot


of fun coming from him. On the bright side, at least this might


give us some laughs along the way. I like the idea of a renegade from


Luxembourg. The Mac it is the most exciting thing to come out of


Luxembourg since Tony Prince used to do late shows. The Financial Times


is saying that Cameron has suffered a defeat back emphatically by


leaders. Was it fair the await the rest of the leaders dealt with as?


Many of them were making supportive noises and then they changed their


mind `` this? I don't think it is the case that he has been


doublecrossed. Other leaders were willing to talk. Perhaps he should


have realised... Was all it was. He seemed to think that they were very


much on board `` that was all it was. The two of them holding hands


and disappearing into the back of failure together, this will become


more about David Cameron in the days to come. A third of the votes in


Britain were anti` EU. Perhaps it might lead to reform? Perhaps. You


have to assume that 26 out of 28 litres get that. `` leaders. They


have all backed him. Perhaps they realised there is room for


maneuver. Now this one, this is the care and support minister who is


expressing concern about the care that our elderly people are going to


get and suggesting that volunteers are going to have to step in,


particularly if you live a long way from your relatives as it is


difficult to keep a close eye on them. This makes my blood stopped


cold. What it really means is they want women to step in because I


don't see any men stepping in to help the elderly. This is a cry


against the feminists who might have got themselves jobs and think that


they deserve a life. I always get slightly confused by these stories


because, why is it incumbent upon families to look after the elderly?


We don't choose our families. I will be looking after my mum coming but I


don't see why it becomes the responsibility of people who came


after you and therefore, did not choose you, to look after you. Why


is it the responsibility of the state? As you are paying tax for it,


that's why. They are comparing it to Spain where everyone looks after


their family perfectly happily. But families are less fractured and


separated by long distances in Spain. They are poorer. It is a


function of poverty because they are not all living in separate


establishments and driving to different offices all day. You were


living together. The other question is, what is George Osborne going to


say? I can't take that job because I have to go look after my folks 100


miles away? It is not as simple as that. It is a greater number of


people needing care. The bowler living much older. This article


seemed to say to me that there are so many pressures on families,


whether or not they are a nuclear family were not. Looking after them


doesn't just mean giving them a Neil, it is more complex than that.


`` a meal. The levels of loneliness are staggering. Let's move on,


millions are facing misery in ice `` ISA. I only wish I had some money to


throw into these black holes. I don't quite understand this story.


I'm sure it is deeply you're taking that you might have to wait ``


irritating, that you might have to wait weeks to get a return. It may


be 50 quick and I understand that many will think that is a great loss


`` quid. It is not misery is it? It would be concerning if you did not


think you were going to get your money back. That it is just going to


slip into cyberspace somewhere. It won't appear on the system, so you


will lose your interest. It is that that is going missing. You are


supposed to invest in it for quite some time. To get the most out of


it, I mean. Far be it from me to dispute what is being said here but


I doubt there will be lines down the street for these next week. Perhaps


I am wrong. It might affect Cressy... I don't know who she is


but she's on the front page. It is Harry's girlfriend. Come on. This


article says a white working`class children are being marginalized in


inner`city schools where curriculums have been reordered to reflect a


more multicultural background rather than their own. The whole thing


concerns me. White working`class seems very broad. If you are


working`class, it doesn't matter what colour you are. I don't quite


understand. In inner`city schools, many would be categorised as


working`class but why white? What is British culture? I don't share the


anxiety around this story. What it is saying is that British children


from lower income families feel a loss of identity because schools are


celebrating things like Portuguese Day and the cultures of Jamaica and


Poland and as a result, children who are British from lower income


families are feeling a loss of identity. I was wondering what


British identity might be and I was thinking of my own days that's


cool. `` at school. That's not British culture though, it is


old`fashioned. What can you celebrate with? Celebrating the


culture of Africa, this one says. That is out `` outrageous, there are


many cultures in Africa. I don't think it is going to give anyone a


complex. The study identified causes of low achievement including low


aspirations, engagement by parents, literacy, and social obligations. It


is about bad parenting. Or parents who feel so trapped by the rest of


their lives that they have no time to for fill these obligations. What


are white middle`class people doing that white working`class children


are not? It is to do with a lack of aspiration and a poor home


environment, a home environment that is lacking something. You will have


to retract all of that in a moment. That is it for The Papers tonight.
