Jenkins pulls out of the triathlon. That's in Sportsday, in 15 minutes,

:00:00.:00:00.

after the papers. Hello there. Welcome to our lock

:00:00.:00:19.

ahead to what the papers will bring us tomorrow. With me Alice Arnold

:00:20.:00:24.

and Martin Bentham. Let's look at some of the front pages now. We

:00:25.:00:28.

start with the FT. It goes with the Prime Minister's reshuffle, saying

:00:29.:00:32.

he's injected new urgency into Britain's drive to reform the

:00:33.:00:36.

European Union. The Telegraph, pictures the Employment Minister

:00:37.:00:40.

there, Esther McVey who keeps her job and will now attend Cabinet. The

:00:41.:00:44.

Express says Britain is set to swelter as a so`called Spanish plume

:00:45.:00:50.

of hot air sweeps in. Going, going, Gove is on the front of the

:00:51.:00:54.

Guardian, which says David Cameron demoted the Education Secretary

:00:55.:00:57.

after polling showed he was toxic with voters.

:00:58.:01:00.

The Mail says the penalty for drivers who use a mobile phone at

:01:01.:01:03.

the wheel could be doubled to six points. And the Sun reports that the

:01:04.:01:08.

television host Jeremy Kyle was attacked with pepper spray by a

:01:09.:01:13.

bouncer in Magaluf. I think they've just opened an

:01:14.:01:18.

office in Magaluf actually, the Sun. Any way, Alice, we start with the

:01:19.:01:24.

Telegraph, Cameron targets women and UKIP. On the front page a Trident

:01:25.:01:29.

looking Esther McVey who keeps her job. Two more women are now going to

:01:30.:01:33.

be in the Cabinet, ten women have been promoted in all. Is that good

:01:34.:01:39.

enough do you think? This is Cameron's `` this is a reflection of

:01:40.:01:45.

modern Britain in his Cabinet, five out of 17 in the Cabinet are now

:01:46.:01:49.

women. If that reflects modern Britain, there's a lot of women

:01:50.:01:55.

hiding. Where are I can't they? Do the maths with that It's more one.

:01:56.:01:59.

Reflective, though, it's better. It's the most that have ever been

:02:00.:02:08.

under Cameron. So whoopee for that and lovely pictures of Esther McVey,

:02:09.:02:13.

who isn't properly in the Cabinet, but she looks nice in the pictures.

:02:14.:02:17.

Hang on ` the she's attending meetings. I'm getting the impression

:02:18.:02:22.

you're not impressed. I'll be impressed when the Cabinet reflects

:02:23.:02:28.

modern Britain. I'll be impressed when it reflects modern Britain, 50%

:02:29.:02:31.

of the brightest people in this country are women. They need to be

:02:32.:02:34.

in the Cabinet, otherwise we're wasting a lot of talent. I didn't

:02:35.:02:38.

see any black or Asian people striding purposely towards the door

:02:39.:02:41.

of Number Ten today either. No, no pictures of that. Hang on, let's me

:02:42.:02:49.

` no, don't see it. But Martin, to be fair, to be fair, it is more

:02:50.:02:54.

reflective of Britain, isn't it? It's more reflective than it was.

:02:55.:02:57.

Alice might suggest it's starting from a very, Very Nice Name low `` a

:02:58.:03:02.

very, very low base. That's the problem. He has to go from

:03:03.:03:05.

somewhere. The real problem is that in the Conservative Party they don't

:03:06.:03:08.

have that many women in questionable. They don't have

:03:09.:03:12.

anywhere near 50% in the Parliamentary party and it's

:03:13.:03:15.

difficult to get that many into the Cabinet. That's part of the problem.

:03:16.:03:21.

The other question about it will be, although, many of these women, in

:03:22.:03:25.

fact all of them have got very good reputations and are talked of being

:03:26.:03:29.

very talented, there is a fear that because it's all about the election

:03:30.:03:34.

that's it's a late rush to do it, rather than pure promotion on merit,

:03:35.:03:37.

which should have happened some time ago. Exact ly. Let's go onto the

:03:38.:03:44.

UKIP point. Philip Hammond is a Euro`sceptic. He would like to see

:03:45.:03:48.

Britain leave the EU, he said, if there is no reform. The

:03:49.:03:55.

Attorney`General, Dominic grief is out. `` Dominic Grieve is out. He

:03:56.:04:00.

believes the European Convention on Human Rights is a good thing. Is

:04:01.:04:07.

this a clear and present attack to take away the sting of UKIP? That's

:04:08.:04:13.

how the Tell graph is billing it. The question for cam ran is A,

:04:14.:04:17.

whether when we have, which we will come onto in a second, whether when

:04:18.:04:23.

the top jobs in Europe are divied up tomorrow whether we get a plum post

:04:24.:04:29.

or not and further down`the`line, whether preelection there's any sign

:04:30.:04:32.

from the Government that they've achieved anything sub`Stantive in

:04:33.:04:35.

repatriating the powers they want. Otherwise when it comes to the

:04:36.:04:40.

general election, UKIP and those who are critical will say, well, what

:04:41.:04:43.

have you achieved? You talk about this and maybe you've got more

:04:44.:04:46.

Euro`sceptic people in key posts, but it hasn't delivered anything.

:04:47.:04:51.

All this happening on the same day, if we go to the if the `` Financial

:04:52.:04:58.

Times. On the front there's a picture of a smiling Nigel Farage

:04:59.:05:05.

and Jean`Claude Juncker. Has that been photo shopped. That must have

:05:06.:05:09.

been. That cannot be true. Can it? No, it's true. I'm sure it is.

:05:10.:05:16.

They've been pale recently. Farage was congratulating him on his

:05:17.:05:21.

alleged drinking. He's happy he has a drink and a smoking. They're

:05:22.:05:26.

drinking Maybe not buddies. . We know allegedly, I'm not sure if

:05:27.:05:29.

that's correct, that Mr Juncker likes a tipple. We certainly know

:05:30.:05:34.

that Mr Farage likes a tipple. That seems to be why they're agreeing

:05:35.:05:38.

there. Yes, and they're putting in that this chap called Lord Hill, who

:05:39.:05:42.

they hope will get one of these, everybody seems to have had to

:05:43.:05:46.

Google him to find out who he is, including Juncker. Nobody knows who

:05:47.:05:50.

he is. Do you know? I must admit, I know of Lord Hill, a Labour peer,

:05:51.:05:54.

actually. I thought for a second it was him. Obviously it wasn't him!

:05:55.:05:58.

That would be a surprise. That's a reshuffle too far. Exact ly. No`one

:05:59.:06:02.

knows this one particularly. We've Googled him now and he's going to

:06:03.:06:04.

hopefully, they hope get one Googled him now and he's going to

:06:05.:06:05.

hopefully, they hope get of the top jobs. That's the hope that this man

:06:06.:06:09.

will be in there and get hopefully one of the portfolio that might

:06:10.:06:13.

suggest that Europe could be moving towards the way that the UK feels in

:06:14.:06:18.

relation to the European Union. That's not going to happen, is it?

:06:19.:06:24.

Is Jean`Claude Juncker going to give one of the serious integration

:06:25.:06:27.

portfolios to a British Euro`sceptic? He might do in the

:06:28.:06:31.

sense that clearly both he, from what he's said, and indeed the

:06:32.:06:35.

Germans, through Angela Merkel, are keen actually despite all the

:06:36.:06:38.

clashes that have gone on to keep us on board. I think, although Lord

:06:39.:06:44.

Hill is not the Tory big hitter that was mooted beforehand, various other

:06:45.:06:47.

names were touted as going to Brussels in that role, it will be a

:06:48.:06:52.

real test, I think, as to whether there are serious intent in the

:06:53.:06:57.

European Union to listen to them. He's making rumbling noises,

:06:58.:07:00.

Juncker, that are in the right direction. Yes. Sort of. Although...

:07:01.:07:06.

Whether he does anything or not. Yeah. Delivery is the key

:07:07.:07:11.

Appeasement. We know that one person who has been delivering in terms of

:07:12.:07:15.

his brief to shake up the education system, Mr Gove, the front page of

:07:16.:07:19.

the Guardian ` going, going Gove that. Was out of the blue, wasn't

:07:20.:07:23.

it? No`one had any idea that was coming. Wasn't he unpopular. This is

:07:24.:07:28.

the thing, Cameron is looking for the next election. He's thinking,

:07:29.:07:33.

I've got to save my bacon here. If that means getting rid of my best

:07:34.:07:36.

friend ` they're out. That's why he's got rid of Gove. He's become `

:07:37.:07:42.

A Marmite figure, I heard him described at. Most people not liking

:07:43.:07:47.

Marmite in that way. Do you know many people would like Gove? I'm

:07:48.:07:53.

sure there are. I have to say personally, as a parent with a

:07:54.:07:57.

daughter in school, I'm quite in favour of some of his You reforms.

:07:58.:08:02.

Go. She isn't actually. There's another matter. Right. What the

:08:03.:08:07.

interesting thing here of course, the great conundrum is that he's

:08:08.:08:11.

apparently doing this on the basis of polling and sacrificing his

:08:12.:08:14.

friend for the greater electoral gain. Yet, what's being said is that

:08:15.:08:19.

Michael Gove will appear ever more on television and being a key

:08:20.:08:23.

presentational figure. Exact ly, he's actually going to be on the TV

:08:24.:08:28.

much more than he is already. More? There's going to be more. He's a

:08:29.:08:33.

very effective speaker. He is. He's very engaging. Here, he's been

:08:34.:08:40.

joking today, apparently telling your PM programme today, "Demotion,

:08:41.:08:44.

emotion, promotion, locomotion, I don't know how to describe this

:08:45.:08:47.

move, but it's a privilege to serve." Exact Exactly. He doesn't

:08:48.:08:51.

see it as a demotion. Even though he's not taking home as much in his

:08:52.:08:55.

pay as he used to. It's fun yip how you can look at the `` funny how can

:08:56.:08:59.

you look at the bright That's to side. His credit. That point was

:09:00.:09:04.

made to him that he's not getting a Cabinet minister's salary. He made

:09:05.:09:07.

the point that anybody in politics is quite well paid and therefore he

:09:08.:09:10.

wasn't bothered about this. I thought, all to his credit actually.

:09:11.:09:15.

Most people think they are well paid. Indeed. We're going to go to

:09:16.:09:22.

the, stay with the Guardian actually. Interesting story this,

:09:23.:09:25.

let the terminally ill end their lives say doctors. This is of course

:09:26.:09:32.

in advance of Lord Falconer's assisted dying bill reaching the

:09:33.:09:37.

floor. This is a debate that is really developing now. Well, it is.

:09:38.:09:41.

It's interesting because we've got the two sides in the papers, we will

:09:42.:09:46.

look at the Tell graph in a minute. This is doctors wanting the bill to

:09:47.:09:52.

go through, or some doctors. It was interesting Desmond Tutu came out in

:09:53.:09:55.

favour of it at the weekend and having seen the treatment of Nelson

:09:56.:09:59.

Mandela apparently and Lord Carey has come out in favour of it, which

:10:00.:10:04.

is quite controversial. It seems that the bill would allow adults

:10:05.:10:08.

with less than six months to live to receive help to end their lives.

:10:09.:10:12.

This is the problem. Who decides who's got less than six months to

:10:13.:10:20.

live? How do you make that decision? People have recoveries. Oh, it's a

:10:21.:10:25.

huge can of worms to open. It's just interesting that there are some

:10:26.:10:28.

religious leaders coming out in favour and presumably quite a lot of

:10:29.:10:32.

doctors will be coming out against as well. It's not a Black Country

:10:33.:10:36.

and white thing. `` It's not a black and white thing. In the telegraph,

:10:37.:10:43.

religious leaders unite to condemn the law. One of the world's most

:10:44.:10:49.

famous religious leaders has made it clear he believes there is a role in

:10:50.:10:52.

society for assisted dying. Yes, again, you're right, there's no

:10:53.:10:55.

absolute straight down`the`line split. Some people see it as a

:10:56.:10:59.

compassionate issue and want to assist people who do have this clear

:11:00.:11:05.

view that they want to die. I think the question also is ` some of the

:11:06.:11:08.

people who are most articulate about it and clearly can decide for

:11:09.:11:12.

themselves, that's fine. Not everybody is in that situation. Some

:11:13.:11:16.

people, there is a question about people feeling under pressure,

:11:17.:11:20.

feeling they're a burdened and that's `` burden, and that's

:11:21.:11:22.

difficult. We can see the individual, very, very tragic cases

:11:23.:11:27.

of people who either have terminal illnesses which are going to leave

:11:28.:11:32.

them to face a lingering death or others who are incapacitated and

:11:33.:11:35.

want to end their lives. It's tragic and sad to see that. But it may not

:11:36.:11:40.

be creating a law which allows those cases to be identified clearly and

:11:41.:11:44.

not to have the negative side of some people feeling under pressure

:11:45.:11:53.

is quite difficult. Finally, the Daily Telegraph.

:11:54.:12:02.

Alexander and's claim that it will be 18 months of negotiation to stay

:12:03.:12:07.

in the European Union has been knocked out, apparently `` Alex

:12:08.:12:16.

Salmond. He will launch this grenade at the Scots here. He has clarified

:12:17.:12:22.

this by saying no new states does not include Scotland but it probably

:12:23.:12:28.

reflects a possible reality that may occur if the Scots vote for

:12:29.:12:33.

independence because there is a question about whether they would be

:12:34.:12:38.

admitted. The Daily Telegraph might be staring the pot a little bit. A

:12:39.:12:44.

spokesman for it Jean`Claude Yunker said he was not referring to

:12:45.:12:50.

Scotland `` Jean`Claude Juncker. He said apparently according to his

:12:51.:12:54.

office that he was talking about those already in the accession

:12:55.:12:59.

process such as Serbia and Turkey. That is a bit of a dodgy story,

:13:00.:13:06.

apparently. They got it a bit wrong, maybe they let a little early. Maybe

:13:07.:13:12.

they meant to leap a bit early. Or perhaps he did not express himself

:13:13.:13:16.

Ray clearly in the first place. You will be back in about an hour's

:13:17.:13:26.

time. Many thanks. Stay with us on BBC news because at 11pm we will

:13:27.:13:29.

have more on the Prime Minister's Major Cabinet reshuffle which has

:13:30.:13:32.

seen several women promoted to senior roles. Coming up now, it is

:13:33.:13:34.

Sportsday. Hello and welcome to Sportsday,

:13:35.:13:47.

I'm John Acres. Ronny Dialer gets off to

:13:48.:13:50.
