of 24 degrees. A bit of everything as we move into the weekend, hot and


humid, and then turning pressure on Sunday.


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


bringing us tomorrow. Tomorrow's front pages...starting with... The


FT leads on fears over one of Portugal's biggest banks which led


to a sharp selloff of shares across European markets.


Money worries of a different kind feature in the Metro. The paper says


young women are getting into debt at twice the rate of men their own age


as they try keep up with celebrity lifestyles.


The Telegraph leads on a major health study that shows men who have


vasectomies are at a higher risk of developing prostate cancer.


The Guardian reports on the concessions the Prime Minister made


in order to secure cross party support for emergency surveillance


laws. The Independent also leads on those


emergency laws and says the Prime Minister is planning to reintroduce


what they call a 'snoopers' charter where people's social media and


internet history would be recorded. And the top story in the Express top


story reveals that a million more people are to be offered free weight


loss surgery in a bid to stop them developing diabetes and heart


disease. The Mail also leads on that story,


saying it means two million people may be eligible for the surgery


overnight. And The Mirror has a story about a


mother who said she could intuitively tell a man she met a


random had received her dead son's heart in a transplant operation. So


let's begin... We will start with the Daily Mail. Thousands more to


get obesity operations on the NHS, a call for a huge increase in surgery


and even obesity charities condemn it. It is an interesting story. One


in four of us is classified as obese and they think by 2050, half of us


will be. The cost are actually huge for the NHS. Something has to be


done and this is attracting quite a bit of controversy. They have


criticism from campaigners and patient groups saying that these


people should just eat less and exercise more. I think they are


wrong on this account. When you get to be morbidly obese, it is a


psychological issue and doctors across the world recognise that the


most cost`effective way to deal with it is through bariatric surgery as


it is the only thing that works. A recent report came out that


obesity, studied in 138 countries, over 30 years, none of them had


managed to cut the growth. It looks as if the Daily Mail, the way it has


written this, even obesity charities condemned this. I think the issue is


that lots of people who are perhaps watching this programme now,


themselves or their relatives would like various drugs to combat cancer,


expensive drugs and they are denied those treatments often by the NHS


and they think, why are overweight people who are. Way largely because


they eat too much going to get this and I can't? At Eden Hazard he


suggested, 10% of the whole cost will be about treating lifestyle


related diseases including obesity `` Ian. What do policymakers do with


that? They are saying that if we don't tackle the obesity crisis, and


this is one of the best ways to do it, we will not be able to afford


any kind of expansion of healthcare in years to come. We need to


differentiate between people who are minorly obese or overweight and


issues with people who are morbidly obese which is what we are talking


about. It is quite interesting, in country's that have healthcare, this


is often paid for. `` countries. It is quite cost`effective however much


the opposite it might seem. We will have to grapple with these big


issues or the NHS will not survive. Berlin puts its foot down over US


espionage and expels a spy. We found out not long ago that the national


security agency was spying on Germany and in fact, bugging the


mobile of Angela Merkel. Now we have all of this happening. It seems to


be added to the Cold War developing. OK maybe not. I think


the truth is, most nations spy on one another, for commercial or other


reasons. America has a big interest at the moment in knowing if Germany


is getting close to Russia and Britain. We spy? I think we do,


wobbly not an America. Do you believe that? `` probably. I do. I


don't think there is the kind of surveillance that we see an America


and Germany `` in. Germany is the economic powerhouse of Europe and


they are close to Russia for energy supplies and trade and therefore, a


may not take the kind of action that is needed to restrain it Russia in


places like Crimea and Ukraine because of these commercial


interests and so America is spying on Germany to understand how to deal


with that issue. Isn't that the kind of thing that Americans could get


anyway by talking to the ambassador or Angela Merkel? I do get is pretty


basic and rudimentary information that is usually eavesdropped on. ``


think it is. But if it is her mobile phone, they may be getting some


pretty sensitive information. We are talking about people within the


heart of the defence administration within Germany, so that would be


sensitive information and it is a big issue for both countries. Where


are we with Mac we will stay with the Financial Times and Wonga. The


Church of England has decided to cut its ties with Wonga as the


Archbishop of Canterbury famously said that payday lenders were a


scourge on society and should be dealt with but in fact, the


organisation that he runs has been deeply involved. It has not been a


correct episode for the Archbishop and it is probably his biggest


public scandals since he took over so it is quite embarrassing. He


famously said that he was going to rival Wonga and use his commercial


acumen to set up a church led sort of loan system which I don't think


we have seen much evidence of. He is a former city councilman as well. He


knows how the markets operate. It was a big mistake, wasn't it? Not


knowing that the church itself was involved with Wonga. It was


embarrassing and what was just alluded to is that he made a big


deal, shortly after he became The Archbishop of Canterbury, to say


that he would outcompete Wonga. What the church does no is that church


numbers are down in almost every part of the country `` know. One of


the things they usually get from every parish is collection money and


they are not getting it lately. So when he said that the Turks would


outcompete Wonga, `` church, my genuine question is why? The big


thing, the big promise that he made was an alternative offer. It was a


smart approach, but where is it? It would be quite sad if the church


doesn't follow through. They need to get some reporters on it to ask


questions. We need to sort this out. The Guardian. What is all this


about? A link to offshore tax havens at Nando's? . The Guardian has been


doing quite a bit of work on this and have been looking into everyone


who has money stashed away. Not just the Guardian. The Times as well. Am


I allowed to say that? Well this is just the latest one. The best weapon


against all this tax nonsense with company after company being caught,


we saw Starbucks as well, the public are now saying that there needs to


be far more transparency as the government has talked about it but


haven't actually done anything in terms of closing down these tax


havens. Air is too much going on. The strongest power will be just to


say that they will boycott these places. Are you going to forsake


your chicken? I haven't been for a long time. They are not doing


anything illegal, are they? They are not. We can condemn companies that


take aggressive forms of tax avoidance. Starbucks had struggled a


little bit since the revelations came out but we have a ludicrously


complicated tax system and the only people who seem able to understand


it are the highly trained and highly paid accountants. If the government


really wants to deal with this problem coming they will have to


simple by the tax system so that people cannot exploit these


loopholes. Because these people will always be able to afford the best


lawyers and accountants and they can always say that there is a moral


imperative to pay your fair share of taxes but beyond that the government


can't do much. You are absolutely right. They make it easy for them to


avoid tax. The harder we make it, the better it will be. It should


also be made known so that the public can decide whether they want


to give money to these people. We're going to go to the Independent. 1


million workers from public sector unions were out today protesting


cuts and pay freezes. The government says that less than half of that


took part. I am not sure that is the most attractive public`sector


servant that we have ever seen but that is the one the Independent has


chosen. It is interesting that he is almost on his own there, because


this is what the government has said. It was supposed to be one of


the biggest days of industrial action that Britain has seen and the


evidence seems to be that most of the services that were due to be


affected, most public`sector workers actually didn't go on the picket


lines and went to work. But one in five schools in England were


closed. These strikes were triggered by just 20% of members of trade


unions voting and yet, big disruption is possible when you have


very small turnouts. I think that is why the Conservatives are trying to


say that you can only have a strike if 50% of people take place in a


ballot. We had all the discussions yesterday, some MPs returned with


less than 10% of the vote. No MP had more than 50%. These arguments have


been swirling around for hours. I suppose the point is that everyone


agrees, the government agrees, and says that it is a good thing that


public`sector workers are in a worse state now than they were four years


ago. Gas, but they also don't have pension security `` yes. But when


you talk about the private sector, you are including bankers from the


Royal Bank of England. There has been a pay increase of 8% in many


places but if you take out bankers and a certain people who are earning


much more than your teacher or your garbage man, it is not point to be


right. There is no doubt that it is tough to be in the private sector


and I don't think anyone should hide from that. The correct answer is to


consider whether children not going to school is the issue. Nobody


doubts that they're working very hard in the public`sector and Don


reduced budgets but the reality is that we cannot afford to carry on


spending as we are. The debt is still rising and we have to resolve


it. Strike is not the best way to resolve it, in my opinion. On to the


Telegraph. Oh, nevermind. I have been told that it is the Metro. Here


we are. I can see why you really want to do this story. It is


important. Women/the plastic to keep up with female celebrities ``


flash. We have just been talking about the debt we are in as a nation


but Britain has a twin debt crisis and that his household and personal


debt. We have the highest in Europe and it is still very dangerous. That


is with interest rates at extraordinary historically low


levels. It seems a bit fun at face value but it isn't. Lots of young


people are already in huge amount of debt. If interest rates start to


rise, which is what the Bank of England has said will happen, people


are going to be in trouble and this is the sad thing, we think the


economy is growing and some people are beating to think that bad


economic times are behind us what we have big challenges ahead ``


beginning. Many thanks for that. We will have much more on the expulsion


of the US intelligence official in Berlin by the German government


following allegations of spying but now we will hear about the sports.
