tomorrow whether he will be fit enough to run. And, Helen Jenkins

pulls out of the triathlon, another blow to Wales.

:00:00.:00:17.

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

:00:18.:00:26.

us tomorrow. With me are the broadcaster Alice Arnold, and Martin

:00:27.:00:28.

Bentham, home affairs editor at the London Evening Standard. The

:00:29.:00:34.

Financial Times leads with the PM's reshuffle, saying it has injected

:00:35.:00:39.

new urgency into their drive to reform the EU. The Daily Telegraph

:00:40.:00:43.

pictures Esther McVey, who keeps her job. The Daily Express says Britain

:00:44.:00:50.

is set to swelter as a so`called Spanish plume of hot air sweeps him.

:00:51.:00:58.

The Guardian reports on the demotion of the education secretary, after

:00:59.:01:01.

polling showed he was toxic with voters. The Times leads on the

:01:02.:01:11.

Downing Street detox. The Daily Mail says the penalty for drivers who use

:01:12.:01:14.

a mobile phone at the wheel could be doubled to six points. The Scotsman

:01:15.:01:19.

says a strike by thousands of BBC staff could disrupt coverage of the

:01:20.:01:27.

Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. And the Sun reports on Jeremy Kyle being

:01:28.:01:34.

attacked with pepper spray in Magaluf.

:01:35.:01:38.

We will start with the inside page of the Daily Mail. According to the

:01:39.:01:53.

Daily Mail, they don't seem to be happy that Michael Gove is going.

:01:54.:01:57.

This is a narrative you will see from the right in particular, for

:01:58.:02:03.

whom Michael Gove is a great hero. He and Theresa May are seen as the

:02:04.:02:10.

two who have really achieved reform. Iain Duncan Smith to a smaller

:02:11.:02:17.

extent. Here, it talks about how it is a tragedy that the man who

:02:18.:02:24.

started a revolution is denied the opportunity to finish the job. It

:02:25.:02:28.

talks about him being the most brilliant minister taken out of the

:02:29.:02:32.

front line, and suggests that David Cameron has undermined his own

:02:33.:02:36.

achievements in government. There is a similar narrative in a piece that

:02:37.:02:40.

Charles Clarke has written, talking about the worst reshuffle in 25

:02:41.:02:44.

years. This is definitely a narrative from the right, that

:02:45.:02:48.

Michael Gove has been unfairly treated. Sure, but the bottom line

:02:49.:02:55.

is that... The suggestion from the other papers is that they did

:02:56.:03:00.

polling, and Mr Gove is apparently toxic. The teaching unions

:03:01.:03:05.

absolutely hate him. And the Conservatives had to reach out to

:03:06.:03:09.

that section of the public sector that has been very angry at the

:03:10.:03:14.

reforms that have been going ahead. They need a lead of 11.1% if they

:03:15.:03:21.

are going to beat the Labour Party in the next election. This was

:03:22.:03:24.

definitely a popularity issue. He carries a huge swathe of

:03:25.:03:29.

unpopularity with him. The person they have chosen to replace him with

:03:30.:03:42.

his Nicola Morgan. Originally, she was going to be the education

:03:43.:03:45.

secretary and the minister for equalities, but they have taken some

:03:46.:03:50.

responsibility away, it is they have just remembered that she didn't vote

:03:51.:04:01.

for equal marriage, oops! She would find it difficult, because she is a

:04:02.:04:04.

devout Anglican, and she believes that marriage is between a man and a

:04:05.:04:09.

woman. Well, it would be for her, because she is Tetris actual, but it

:04:10.:04:14.

doesn't count for other people. `` heterosexual. They have given the

:04:15.:04:21.

job to someone else. Apparently she knows nothing about education, that

:04:22.:04:26.

is what Andrew Pierce is saying, so that if the Daily Mail. It is a

:04:27.:04:29.

tragedy Michael Gove has gone and look at this new person who knows

:04:30.:04:34.

nothing about education. And there is clearly a sideswipe at David

:04:35.:04:38.

Cameron. The Daily Mail has its issues with David Cameron.

:04:39.:04:44.

Definitely, there is a question on the right as to what David Cameron

:04:45.:04:48.

actually believes in, whether he is a true reformer, and this will play

:04:49.:04:55.

into that. This will generate some concern and ongoing descent,

:04:56.:05:01.

especially if it goes wrong. The idea of polling toxicity, Michael

:05:02.:05:06.

Gove is apparently going to be on the television and radio even more.

:05:07.:05:20.

An election guru has warned David Cameron of negative poll findings.

:05:21.:05:29.

More than half the voters thought he was doing a bad job. This is what I

:05:30.:05:34.

will would say was half of his problem, and I don't want to judge

:05:35.:05:37.

people on their looks, we should never do that. It is not his looks,

:05:38.:05:42.

as such, but his expressions. This picture says it all. That is why it

:05:43.:05:48.

is difficult to sell him. If you capture a moment... Just ask Ed

:05:49.:05:55.

Miliband while he is eating his bacon sandwich. Even you might look

:05:56.:06:04.

a bit iffy. I would definitely look a bit iffy, all the time! They have

:06:05.:06:11.

been lambasted in the past four featuring women in unfortunate

:06:12.:06:18.

positions. And here they are... The Times has a picture of lots of women

:06:19.:06:24.

walking into Downing Street, some of them... It is clearly photo shop, it

:06:25.:06:29.

is not a real picture. They didn't all walk in at the same time. No,

:06:30.:06:33.

and some of them were walking out. This is to show who is coming and

:06:34.:06:38.

who is going. And they have two more women. Helpfully for some of us, who

:06:39.:06:46.

hardly know some of these people, it does tell us who they all are. There

:06:47.:06:51.

is a little quay underneath which will help you work out what is going

:06:52.:06:58.

on. `` key. Another story, a pay cut for a

:06:59.:07:06.

barrenness. This is a classic reshuffle gaffe, because there are

:07:07.:07:11.

usually a couple of errors that creep in. Nicky Morgan was one on

:07:12.:07:23.

the equality brief, and this is Baroness Tina Stoll, they only have

:07:24.:07:32.

a certain number of cabinet salaries available, so they would remove it

:07:33.:07:36.

from the House of Lords leader. They hadn't what about the fact they

:07:37.:07:39.

would appoint a woman, and the net result was that a woman who took

:07:40.:07:43.

over from a man will be paid left, so they had to have a whip around.

:07:44.:07:50.

So they are covering at? It is coming out party funds. They have

:07:51.:07:55.

all put some money in a hat, and she will be paid 101,000 like her

:07:56.:08:07.

predecessor. He is going to Europe. He will probably get more in

:08:08.:08:11.

Europe, they get paid a lot when they get to Europe. They do. We all

:08:12.:08:15.

think these things are very carefully thought out, and they

:08:16.:08:20.

often are, but the days that follow these things often crop up. They get

:08:21.:08:25.

forgotten, and one minister once got forgotten and had to be given a non`

:08:26.:08:31.

paying job. What do you mean was forgotten? I think it was a minister

:08:32.:08:39.

for women, they forgot to include, I think she was my MP. I might be

:08:40.:08:43.

getting this wrong, but I think they then had to appoint somebody to do

:08:44.:08:47.

this job, I think it was her, without salary. It has happened

:08:48.:08:52.

before. Because they forgot to appoint her? They had used up all

:08:53.:08:57.

the salaries, probably. You can imagine and doing all the least,

:08:58.:09:00.

they publish it and get very excited, and then people point out

:09:01.:09:06.

all these things. The best laid plans of mice and men and...

:09:07.:09:13.

Politicians. Now, the Guardian. The debate

:09:14.:09:19.

hotting up ahead of Lord Faulkner's assisted dying Bill. There are

:09:20.:09:27.

number of doctors are urging the Lords in their vote to vote this

:09:28.:09:32.

thing down. It is not clear`cut, is it? No, I think the voters on

:09:33.:09:40.

Friday, and it is a very controversial bill. It is not cut

:09:41.:09:47.

and dried, there have been religious leaders like Desmond Tutu and Lord

:09:48.:09:55.

Carey, who have come out and said that they are poor of the deal, but

:09:56.:10:01.

then there are doctors who are anti the bill, some that are for the

:10:02.:10:17.

bill. It is something that hasn't ethical element to it that is so

:10:18.:10:22.

huge. Whether they can cover everything that needs to be put in

:10:23.:10:27.

place is doubtful. If you go to the Daily Telegraph, had you think it is

:10:28.:10:36.

looking? Do you think it will go through? I don't know. It is very

:10:37.:10:43.

hard to judge at this stage. I think it will then progress, whether it

:10:44.:10:48.

goes through the House of Lords. The Supreme Court gave a ruling a couple

:10:49.:10:52.

of weeks ago that said to Parliament, you have got to examine

:10:53.:10:57.

this, because there was the challenge of the widow of the late

:10:58.:11:04.

Tony Nicklinson. They tried to challenge it, and it has now been

:11:05.:11:08.

taken to Parliament. We will see this great debate, and as you say it

:11:09.:11:14.

is hard to know. I think at this stage it will continue, partly

:11:15.:11:17.

because Friday will not be sufficient to have the full debate

:11:18.:11:22.

that is needed, where it gets to in the process is question altogether.

:11:23.:11:29.

You pointed to the intervention, the interesting intervention of Lord

:11:30.:11:31.

Carey from the Archbishop of Canterbury, and Desmond Tutu.

:11:32.:11:39.

Desmond Tutu's opinion on this was coloured by the way Nelson Mandela

:11:40.:11:47.

was treated. He believes in a dignified death, that was in the

:11:48.:11:50.

piece he wrote. I think he saw what he thought was not such a dignified

:11:51.:11:53.

death in terms of watching Nelson Mandela, which was a case of keeping

:11:54.:12:01.

someone alive artificially much longer... These are the questions,

:12:02.:12:08.

it is an enormous can of worms. Are we talking about people who must

:12:09.:12:12.

have less than six months to live, who knows how long someone will

:12:13.:12:16.

live? It is like asking how long is a piece of string. There are so many

:12:17.:12:24.

questions about falsely keeping people alive who would die

:12:25.:12:27.

naturally, or giving people medicine to make them die when they wouldn't

:12:28.:12:34.

die. They are two separates issues, aren't they? Yes, they are but these

:12:35.:12:40.

are all debates that are very difficult. German sausage makers

:12:41.:12:49.

with links to price`fixing cartels. This is a fantastic story. 11 German

:12:50.:12:55.

sausage makers have been given a 338 million euros iron from the Federal

:12:56.:13:02.

cartel authority, because they have been price`fixing. `` fine. It is

:13:03.:13:13.

interesting that it went on so long, and the Germans eat a lot of pork.

:13:14.:13:20.

38 kilograms of pork every year, in various forms. They were fixing the

:13:21.:13:31.

price? You need a big fine. 338 million euros, does that sound

:13:32.:13:35.

commensurate to the damage that has been caused to the sausage market?

:13:36.:13:44.

It is the consumers, I'm sure the market is fine, it is the consumers

:13:45.:13:48.

who are hanging onto their tasty sausages. I am just wondering, 338

:13:49.:13:56.

million, is that more than what some financiers have been fined for their

:13:57.:14:05.

roles in fiddling figures? There were to be 21 producers and 33

:14:06.:14:13.

individuals who share the fine. We don't know what the proportions are.

:14:14.:14:24.

OK, finally, from sausages to wind. `` wine. Lidl is going all posh. I

:14:25.:14:35.

read this story. And I thought, this could be nice. You can pay ?25.99,

:14:36.:14:57.

that seems like a lot in Lidl. The suggestion is that that could be ?40

:14:58.:15:04.

or ?50 elsewhere, potentially. This is something that might be very

:15:05.:15:10.

popular with consumers but not with other retailers. This comes back to

:15:11.:15:16.

the price war. All the large retailers are having to deal with

:15:17.:15:22.

the lure of Lidl, and people who like their wines are going to be

:15:23.:15:25.

more inclined to head down to Lidl... People who are rich and posh

:15:26.:15:34.

will go, this wine is from Lidl, and I bet you it will become a really

:15:35.:15:39.

cool thing to serve at a dinner party. They have embraced Tesco wine

:15:40.:15:45.

and all the companies that do good wine at good prices. They love it.

:15:46.:15:51.

Thank you so much for looking at some of the stories behind the

:15:52.:15:54.

headlines. At the top of the hour, we will have more on the PM's

:15:55.:16:00.

cabinet reshuffle, which has seen several women promoted.

:16:01.:16:16.
