Westminster politics. Tributes are paid to singer

:00:00.:00:00.

songwriter Bobby Womack, who's died at the age of 70.

:00:00.:00:15.

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

:00:16.:00:23.

us tomorrow. With me the journalist and author Matthew Green and the

:00:24.:00:24.

political journalist Sean Dilley . But other quick look through the

:00:25.:00:38.

front pages. Let's have a look. There's a dire warning about the NHS

:00:39.:00:41.

on the Observer, which says senior Tories have forecast it could

:00:42.:00:43.

collapse within two years. The Sunday Express says nurses could

:00:44.:00:46.

take on some of the routine jobs currently done by GPS, like

:00:47.:00:49.

check`ups for asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure.

:00:50.:00:51.

The Sunday Times says Labour leader Ed Miliband is under attack from one

:00:52.:00:54.

of his top advisers, for not attempting bold policies. ``GPs.

:00:55.:01:00.

And, the main picture on the Telegraph is of the Duchess of

:01:01.:01:03.

Cornwall, who's revealed she was moved to tears when she heard she

:01:04.:01:06.

had three great uncles who died in the Battle of the Somme. They're

:01:07.:01:08.

also pictured. So, let's begin. The front page of

:01:09.:01:16.

the Sunday Telegraph, the argument over David Cameron 's handling of

:01:17.:01:19.

the vote for the new president of the EU. He continues. Tories tell EU

:01:20.:01:24.

leaders they are cowards. He has support from his Cabinet. You have

:01:25.:01:28.

top Tory is rallying behind him as they would. `` Tories. Are we

:01:29.:01:35.

looking at... Will we look back and say this was the moment when Britain

:01:36.:01:45.

drifted out of the EU? This isn't about David Cameron, but about

:01:46.:01:48.

Britain and its relationship with the EU and how much people reading

:01:49.:01:54.

this article no and care. They don't care about the specific issue. This

:01:55.:02:04.

is important. The public don't care about Mr Juncker or what is a

:02:05.:02:08.

humiliation for David Cameron. They don't care about it, they are more

:02:09.:02:12.

interested in things that affect us day`to`day. It is alienating. A bit

:02:13.:02:19.

of a sweeping generalisation. They are probably people who know what

:02:20.:02:23.

the EU is doing for Britain. The message is not getting across.

:02:24.:02:29.

Politicians have this problem. Politicians will have to push what

:02:30.:02:32.

the EU does do for Britain. That task is more difficult, because Mr

:02:33.:02:38.

Juncker is the consummate EU insider and is not the person who can put in

:02:39.:02:42.

front of voters in Britain and say he is leading bold reforms and that

:02:43.:02:46.

the EU is moving in the direction most people want to see. It has made

:02:47.:02:52.

David Cameron's job much harder. This article doesn't explain why. It

:02:53.:02:56.

just talks about David Cameron and how it is isolating. That is true of

:02:57.:03:02.

a lot of coverage. It does not contextualise the shift within the

:03:03.:03:07.

EU. This is a political earthquake within the corridors of Brussels.

:03:08.:03:10.

Normally, it would be heads of state who nominate who is the head of the

:03:11.:03:15.

EU. That hasn't happened. It is the parliament who has taken that power.

:03:16.:03:19.

It is run largely by people we have not heard of. In parties we don't

:03:20.:03:24.

know much about. It is a nightmare in a way that parties like UKIP and

:03:25.:03:28.

others are warning about. UKIP are well out of it. David Cameron is

:03:29.:03:34.

more or less guaranteeing that by the recent words about Mr Juncker.

:03:35.:03:39.

More on that at election time. Moving onto the times. A story about

:03:40.:03:44.

Ed Miliband. Dead hand Miliband, blasted by top adviser. This is an

:03:45.:03:51.

adviser Ed Miliband speaks of highly as a radical and deep thinker in the

:03:52.:04:01.

party. He was at a meeting about policies, a public meeting, and the

:04:02.:04:04.

Sunday Times say they have a tape about what he said about Ed

:04:05.:04:11.

Miliband. It is well known that he is wing of the party and believed

:04:12.:04:15.

within the party that is why he was brought in to do policy, to sort

:04:16.:04:20.

some of the alienating left`wingers and bring them into the fold. In

:04:21.:04:26.

this instance, he says the party, not necessarily Ed Miliband, the

:04:27.:04:29.

article does not say, people got coded messages, those around him,

:04:30.:04:35.

general policy makers... He is talking about the inner circle. He

:04:36.:04:41.

once called me Gary O'Donoghue on the BBC. I can get his name wrong.

:04:42.:04:45.

He doesn't think policies are bold enough. If he is a radical thinker,

:04:46.:04:50.

isn't his job to push the party to be as bold possible. His critique

:04:51.:04:56.

will ring true for many people. He says Ed Miliband's inner circle is

:04:57.:05:01.

getting cynical nuggets of politics to time with pollsters. They want

:05:02.:05:07.

people to tell them what they should think, rather than set a bold vision

:05:08.:05:12.

and bring people behind it. It is politics as shelling shampoo or

:05:13.:05:14.

chocolate bars. What will people go for? We have 12 months until the

:05:15.:05:20.

general election and the manifesto is being thought about and policies

:05:21.:05:25.

are written up. But we look at welfare and this is what he is

:05:26.:05:30.

getting out. `` getting out. Speaking with the new statesman for

:05:31.:05:37.

instance, on welfare, the Labour Party policies and the Conservative

:05:38.:05:40.

Party policies meet on the centre ground and there is talk of whether

:05:41.:05:45.

it is compassionate enough. The concern many on the left of the

:05:46.:05:48.

party, including Jon Cruddas, is that they are going down the

:05:49.:05:53.

populist line, rather than the traditional Labour line. Will the

:05:54.:05:56.

loss of the core vote damage them at the election? Also, court test for

:05:57.:06:04.

Michael Gove's ban on holidays, this is his... It is a ban, but it is a

:06:05.:06:09.

fine, because if you take your child out of school term, to go on

:06:10.:06:14.

holiday, you get a fine. It is down to the discretion of the head

:06:15.:06:16.

teacher as to whether you can go. Not any more. Indeed. James Hayter

:06:17.:06:24.

more is apparently took his kids out of school to go to a memorial for

:06:25.:06:29.

their great`grandfather. Anyone would sympathise with that. He got a

:06:30.:06:34.

?120 fine. He has taken exception to this. He is bringing a court case to

:06:35.:06:38.

say that this denies him the right to a family life. It seems drastic

:06:39.:06:46.

to be ?120 fine. I disagree. What you are talking about, I was

:06:47.:06:49.

speaking with a parent I know the other day on this issue, you are

:06:50.:06:53.

talking about issues like funerals that people are being refused leave

:06:54.:06:56.

to take their children on. What will happen is they will take their

:06:57.:06:59.

children out and in some instances it is a fine and could lead to

:07:00.:07:04.

prosecution and a criminal record. We are criminalising parents and

:07:05.:07:07.

using the law where it should not be used. People lose respect for the

:07:08.:07:12.

law as a whole. On the other hand, there has to be something done to

:07:13.:07:15.

stop parents who don't bother to take their children to school.

:07:16.:07:21.

Giving the head master discretion. The head teacher said to the parent,

:07:22.:07:25.

you can possibly phone in and say they are sick. What do you mean? I

:07:26.:07:29.

can't give you permission to go to the wedding. Put it this way, if you

:07:30.:07:33.

say they are sick, I won't investigate. There are parents who

:07:34.:07:38.

argue that they have children they can't take during busy holiday

:07:39.:07:42.

periods, which is basically the school holidays, because they have

:07:43.:07:46.

conditions and special needs and they cannot go too crowded areas.

:07:47.:07:49.

There are parents who have special cases as well and that has been part

:07:50.:07:53.

of the argument. The other side of the argument, the sheer cost of

:07:54.:07:58.

taking your family on holiday because prices shoot up them. We are

:07:59.:08:03.

talking about funerals and memorials in this case and I say, go to this

:08:04.:08:09.

banker from a big company, JP Morgan, I say it is the principal,

:08:10.:08:14.

not the ?120 fine. I doubt it has about that. There are huge lobby

:08:15.:08:17.

groups about this involving thousands of parents. Moving onto

:08:18.:08:25.

the Observer. Another NHS story. This time, the pressure is on David

:08:26.:08:30.

Cameron, who has been warned the NHS is in danger of collapse within five

:08:31.:08:34.

years, this is from the ex` Health Secretary, calling for more funding

:08:35.:08:37.

and raising fears over few doctors as well. The NHS is on every party

:08:38.:08:45.

leader's agenda. What do you make of this? There seems to be a major

:08:46.:08:50.

problem coming. We know that though. At some point there has to

:08:51.:08:55.

be a debate about what will be done. Where will this money come from's no

:08:56.:09:00.

one has come up with that proposal. `` come from? You have something

:09:01.:09:06.

about this. You will go for Health Secretary, will you? Never become a

:09:07.:09:12.

politician, I am afraid. The biggest problem is that if you asked people,

:09:13.:09:17.

and I have experimented with Twitter, and I hope people will join

:09:18.:09:22.

in the # tonight, if you had to define the NHS, in one sentence,

:09:23.:09:26.

less than 140 characters, how would you do that's `` hashtag. No one is

:09:27.:09:32.

certain. The best we have had is that it is free at the point of

:09:33.:09:37.

delivery. `` how would you do that? It is about who we help. It is there

:09:38.:09:43.

to provide healthcare. It is supposed to universal healthcare.

:09:44.:09:47.

That is what the NHS is. It needs a royal commission. You think it

:09:48.:09:52.

should be a review? Let's not use that word. We have had a few. And

:09:53.:09:58.

policy reviews. What do we expect from the NHS? Everyone expects it to

:09:59.:10:04.

provide healthcare for everyone who needs it. Giving nurses more jobs to

:10:05.:10:14.

do. See what I did their? Radical plan to save overstretched doctors

:10:15.:10:17.

surgeries according to the Sunday express `` there? The idea that

:10:18.:10:23.

nurses will take up some of the jobs done by GPs, blood pressure,

:10:24.:10:30.

diabetes, so on. It is said to be a radical plan. Is it a radical? It

:10:31.:10:36.

might be a good idea. We agree on that. I went to the GP with my Mrs

:10:37.:10:44.

and Sheedy that. She had her blood is taken, it was done by the nurse.

:10:45.:10:48.

I have just realised that they are doing that. Many thanks for taking

:10:49.:10:56.

us through the papers. Thank you for watching. Stay with us on BBC News
