Goodness me, what is happening?! We are a peer! With me, James Lyons and

:00:24.:00:31.

David Ho, and we are gone to race through the papers, because we

:00:32.:00:35.

haven't got long, half the normal length of time. We start with the

:00:36.:00:39.

Daily Telegraph, no preferential treatment, shaming cancer GPs, risk

:00:40.:00:44.

to NHS, the idea that GPs who failed to refer patients for cancer

:00:45.:00:49.

treatment in a timely manner are going to be named and shamed. The

:00:50.:00:56.

article says it will have a bad impact on the NHS. Yeah, totally,

:00:57.:01:02.

part of Jeremy Hunt's attempt to get cancer referrals lifted up in the

:01:03.:01:08.

NHS, and so he has issued these new rules which the doctors are very

:01:09.:01:12.

concerned about, saying, look, it will overwhelm surgeries. They'll

:01:13.:01:17.

say that if you punish doctors for using their judgments not to refer

:01:18.:01:20.

cases, when they do have cancer later, you will have doctors

:01:21.:01:25.

referring all cases straightaway, which will make it much worse. The

:01:26.:01:30.

article makes the point that the Department of Health says too many

:01:31.:01:35.

cases are diagnosed in A when you go about something else. Yes, and

:01:36.:01:39.

there are issues about the resources available in the NHS, and it is good

:01:40.:01:49.

to see the David Caro graph `` Daily Telegraph rowing in behind public

:01:50.:01:52.

sector workers! I am sure you will be backing the teachers and public

:01:53.:01:56.

sector workers on strike later this week. We will be reporting it,

:01:57.:02:02.

certainly, but this is important for readers, rather than a personal

:02:03.:02:07.

political preference. We haven't got time for this level of joshing! The

:02:08.:02:13.

SNP retribution threat to pro`UK firms, if business leaders speak out

:02:14.:02:18.

against independence, there will be some comeuppance, I don't know what

:02:19.:02:24.

sort, do you? Well, they have not spelt it out, but this is the nasty

:02:25.:02:27.

side of the Nationalists, and it comes back to something we have seen

:02:28.:02:34.

in various guises. I am sure there are excellent Scottish Nationalists

:02:35.:02:36.

who campaign solely on issues, but there is an awful lot of personal

:02:37.:02:40.

abuse as well. I know a colleague who wrote about the worries that

:02:41.:02:43.

business had about Scotland breaking away, he receives, you know, a lot

:02:44.:02:52.

of vilification, and some of the SNP supporters were involved. And we saw

:02:53.:02:55.

JK Rowling being attacked on Twitter when she said she wanted Britain to

:02:56.:03:01.

stay together. It is more serious than that, although they were very

:03:02.:03:04.

upsetting comments, this is threatening contracts and people's

:03:05.:03:12.

livelihoods and jobs. Ian McKellen runs CBI Scotland, and he has been

:03:13.:03:15.

saying he is not in favour of independence on behalf of the CBI,

:03:16.:03:20.

and they say it is a threat to livelihoods. The Metro, GPs put on

:03:21.:03:26.

alert over the Ebola virus, there has been an outbreak in West

:03:27.:03:31.

Africa, and obviously people coming back to carry the virus and not

:03:32.:03:35.

realise they have it. It says the risk is actually very small, very

:03:36.:03:40.

slight. The virus is only found in certain parts of Africa, West

:03:41.:03:44.

Africa, Sierra Leone and in particular. You have to have been

:03:45.:03:50.

there to be at risk. A brave attempt to get in the fact that the

:03:51.:03:53.

Commonwealth Games is going to be held in Glasgow, suggesting it might

:03:54.:03:59.

be spreading it across Britain! I think we can sleep easy in our beds

:04:00.:04:04.

this evening. The Public Health England people think so too. The

:04:05.:04:09.

Guardian, ministers push for law to track phone use, this keeps cropping

:04:10.:04:15.

up, the snoopers' charter. Any excuse, Theresa May says we must

:04:16.:04:18.

monitor everything that happens anywhere in Britain, and we see the

:04:19.:04:23.

Lib Dems pop up and say, not on our watch. I think there will be a

:04:24.:04:27.

report from the committee in parliament, which the Tories will

:04:28.:04:30.

use as another attempt to shoehorn this through. Nick Clegg will be

:04:31.:04:34.

delighted, it gives them a chance to disagree with David Cameron. The

:04:35.:04:42.

suggestion is that it would be a log of phone calls, texts, internet

:04:43.:04:47.

usage. Every click, if you are playing a computer game, they will

:04:48.:04:50.

be monitoring it, the companies will have to store what you have done.

:04:51.:04:56.

The envelope, not the letter, where you are contacting, not the content

:04:57.:04:59.

of the message. Do they call it mattered a day? They might do, it is

:05:00.:05:11.

a big word. `` metadata. It is only an eighth letter word! So this is

:05:12.:05:25.

never going to happen? The Lib Dems will not allow it. It is the phoney

:05:26.:05:30.

war head of next May. Should we allow it to happen? If we want to be

:05:31.:05:32.

protected, going on, and he says there is a

:05:33.:06:08.

dangerous complacency in Britain, coming up to the anniversary of the

:06:09.:06:17.

7/7 attacks, and since then there has been no widespread bombing

:06:18.:06:20.

attacks, and he says people need to wake up and realise. He has seen the

:06:21.:06:27.

concerns. Let's look at page five of the Daily Express, white top US film

:06:28.:06:31.

bosses are fighting for space in our studios, very busy studios in our

:06:32.:06:36.

country, but this article does not tell me why. That is James on the

:06:37.:06:45.

right, battling Alex Salmond! This is actually down to George

:06:46.:06:49.

Osborne's tax breaks, James won't want to talk about that, bringing

:06:50.:06:55.

more movie`making to the country. It looks like something from George

:06:56.:06:58.

Osborne, absolutely no figures in it at all! That is a little bit harsh,

:06:59.:07:05.

I have read the article! Says the studios are expanding. But the

:07:06.:07:11.

article did not tell me why this is happening, maybe we will do a little

:07:12.:07:16.

bit deeper! Whistle`stop papers, James and Christopher, it is Sunday,

:07:17.:07:22.

will be back with us at 11:25 for a look at the stories making the

:07:23.:07:25.

morning newspapers. A lot of laughing in the gallery, I don't

:07:26.:07:29.

know why! Join us then, see you later.

:07:30.:07:37.

Good evening. I think we can keep the weekend weather themes going

:07:38.:07:44.

through into the first part of the
