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


pulls out of the triathlon, another blow to Wales.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


attacked with pepper spray in Magaluf.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


definitely a popularity issue. He carries a huge swathe of


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


been lambasted in the past four featuring women in unfortunate


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


think these things are very carefully thought out, and they


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Politicians. Now, the Guardian. The debate


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


because Friday will not be sufficient to have the full debate


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


You pointed to the intervention, the interesting intervention of Lord


Carey from the Archbishop of Canterbury, and Desmond Tutu.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


questions about falsely keeping people alive who would die


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


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


are all debates that are very difficult. German sausage makers


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


cabinet reshuffle, which has seen several women promoted.
