:01:22.:01:25.

Papers. Hello and welcome to

:01:26.:01:38.

our look ahead to what the papers With me are the former

:01:39.:01:41.

Sunday Express editor Eve Pollard Tomorrow's front pages,

:01:42.:01:45.

starting with... Many papers,

:01:46.:01:48.

including the Telegraph, lead on the government's defeat on

:01:49.:01:50.

tax credits in the House of Lords. The Times says the Chancellor George

:01:51.:01:53.

Osborne has vowed to rein in the power of the Lords after what the

:01:54.:01:56.

paper calls a "humiliating defeat". The Guardian says the Prime Minister

:01:57.:02:00.

is launching a "rapid review" into the Upper House

:02:01.:02:02.

with David Cameron accusing peers of George Osborne was furious about

:02:03.:02:05.

the revolt according to the Metro. And it's the Mirror's lead as well,

:02:06.:02:13.

which along with many papers pictures the Duchess of Cambridge

:02:14.:02:16.

and Daniel Craig at the James Bond A different lead in the Mail,

:02:17.:02:19.

which says servicemen have been banned from joining a rally

:02:20.:02:26.

for a Royal Marine who was jailed "Banger out of order" is the Sun's

:02:27.:02:29.

verdict on the World Health Organization's finding

:02:30.:02:34.

that processed meats such And the Financial Times covers the

:02:35.:02:36.

arrest of a 15-year-old boy Let's begin. We can't get away from

:02:37.:02:57.

the tax credit story. It doesn't matter where you start. The

:02:58.:03:04.

Guardian, EM's morning to peers as the Commons goes to loggerheads --

:03:05.:03:17.

PM's warning. The Lord's do not usually overturn what has been

:03:18.:03:26.

posted on by elected MPs in the House of Commons, so they have

:03:27.:03:33.

broken this in relation to the house -- tax credit. The people who really

:03:34.:03:37.

matter are the people who are going to be worse off and this is sort of

:03:38.:03:43.

bipartisan, the way this story is betrayed. Interestingly, at the

:03:44.:03:46.

education minister on Wednesday said that she expected George Osborne to

:03:47.:03:55.

ameliorate or to slow down some of these tax cuts. He obviously didn't

:03:56.:04:02.

want to make himself unpopular, and the party unpopular by doing it. He

:04:03.:04:07.

hadn't got around to it. These come in next April. The tax credits.

:04:08.:04:14.

Yes. And you can tell that obviously David Cameron and the Tories have

:04:15.:04:18.

not bothered with the House of Lords reform which is probably one of the

:04:19.:04:24.

dumbest subjects in the world. People who belong save has already

:04:25.:04:29.

become a very overcrowded place. There are 100 Lib Dem peers. It is

:04:30.:04:35.

extraordinary situation that the Tories do have a majority in the

:04:36.:04:40.

Commons and yet were outgunned in the Lords and it has come back to

:04:41.:04:45.

bite them. It has. I am normally more sympathetic to politicians and

:04:46.:04:49.

how difficult it is to run this country than many people but for me,

:04:50.:04:57.

this government has not done, has done absolutely nothing despite

:04:58.:05:02.

encouragement from the Lib Dems in the last Parliament about House of

:05:03.:05:08.

Lords reform and here they are now, in this mess. Except most of us,

:05:09.:05:15.

frankly, don't care about House of Lords reform. What we care about is

:05:16.:05:25.

getting our finances in order, we are more interested in the steel

:05:26.:05:28.

industry being in trouble than House of Lords reform but now they're

:05:29.:05:31.

going to have to tackle it up he they have no option because this

:05:32.:05:35.

could happen again and again. In this instance, it will be sorted but

:05:36.:05:40.

it might be something rather more complex in the future. The mantra of

:05:41.:05:45.

this government has been working good. Going out to work is good.

:05:46.:05:50.

Don't you believe it? I absolutely agree with it, at your own news

:05:51.:05:57.

channel, around 7:00 PM, I heard from one of your course ponds that

:05:58.:06:02.

the real sufferers from these proposals as they have been, are

:06:03.:06:12.

working mothers. Now, Bash is at the root -- of that is at the root of

:06:13.:06:26.

the issue. -- one of your correspondents. Schools should be

:06:27.:06:30.

open until seven o'clock, allow other people to go in after the

:06:31.:06:34.

teachers go into ticket other things and allow a woman to have a chance

:06:35.:06:39.

at her career. I was a working mother my entire life. The basis of

:06:40.:06:45.

the problem, everyone talks about cuts but the reality is that we

:06:46.:06:49.

haven't had many of them yet and whatever you do is going to hit

:06:50.:06:58.

somebody and you rightly admired the politicians for struggling to do it

:06:59.:07:02.

well. You are always going to upset somebody. I have been debating this

:07:03.:07:15.

weekend about, is this government obsessed with the elderly, at the

:07:16.:07:24.

expense of a younger generation who don't necessarily vote for them? And

:07:25.:07:29.

I now have a conscience about that. I do think that the younger

:07:30.:07:37.

generation, if I can use that old cliche, are getting a hard deal

:07:38.:07:43.

relative to us older people. I voted from the minute I could. I did, as a

:07:44.:07:49.

woman, because women died so women could vote. I tell women they have

:07:50.:07:58.

to vote. I'm not sure it is that simple, but I do think what happens

:07:59.:08:02.

in life now is people get stuffed into these brackets and we shouldn't

:08:03.:08:07.

do this. We're a country trying to ourselves out. Let's move on to a

:08:08.:08:12.

place where awful things happen so often, usually connected with

:08:13.:08:16.

violence and war but now an awful earthquake. The Independent has a

:08:17.:08:20.

front-page picture and the story inside about an earthquake in a very

:08:21.:08:22.

difficult part of the world to get any help to, as well. This picture

:08:23.:08:29.

is in Pakistan. The line above it says hundreds dead after huge

:08:30.:08:33.

earthquake hits north-east Afghanistan. I was lucky enough to

:08:34.:08:37.

go to Afghanistan soon after the Taliban were thrown out of that

:08:38.:08:42.

country and I have never been... I have been to a few difficult places

:08:43.:08:48.

in my life, but I had never been anywhere that had, even at that

:08:49.:08:53.

stage, 2003 - 2004, 25 years of relentless war of one sort or

:08:54.:08:58.

another, be Civil War or the Russians or the Taliban, and now on

:08:59.:09:06.

top of all that which has of course gone on, now you have something like

:09:07.:09:12.

an earthquake. It is unbelievable. So many people give money to these

:09:13.:09:19.

places. Where is it going? What is interesting come of this poor

:09:20.:09:22.

injured boy has been taken to the Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar.

:09:23.:09:29.

That goes back to the old colonial days, doesn't it? Moving on. You

:09:30.:09:38.

waved in my direction when you talked about old people, I

:09:39.:09:43.

remember. This is about a daily drug that could keep the elderly out of

:09:44.:09:50.

care. There is a drug, and I have heard of it, because I'm going

:09:51.:09:56.

towards that direction, but actually it means, it costs six PM day, and

:09:57.:10:06.

it means that those who have dementia and are getting

:10:07.:10:09.

successively worse, if they take this drug, they can cook and get

:10:10.:10:13.

dressed and shop for themselves and live an independent life -- six

:10:14.:10:17.

pence. They don't have to go into care homes. Can you imagine how much

:10:18.:10:24.

that would save the NHS? The University College of London

:10:25.:10:27.

estimates that 26,000 people a year could stay in their own homes. The

:10:28.:10:41.

drug costs ?21 50 per year. Any good news about Alzheimer's is just

:10:42.:10:46.

that, but there is no care as of yet. They're working very hard

:10:47.:10:51.

because this is becoming a bigger and bigger problem is we live longer

:10:52.:10:56.

and longer. Also, it is not just the cost of the care home. It is the

:10:57.:11:01.

whole lack of your confidence, that you are not living in your own

:11:02.:11:06.

home. If you could put that off for a year, I think it is well worth the

:11:07.:11:10.

money and it is a very interesting study. Let's go one. The Times --

:11:11.:11:21.

on, this is about TalkTalk. Many people were affected by the cyber

:11:22.:11:27.

attack and now we see a boy of 15 has been arrested. We can't go into

:11:28.:11:34.

any more details. If you have any problems with your tax system, you

:11:35.:11:48.

go to anybody under the age of 18 -- technology. They understand how this

:11:49.:11:51.

stuff works and they're fascinated by it. If this boy did actually get

:11:52.:11:57.

into TalkTalk... We don't know. It is alleged, as the phrase goes, that

:11:58.:12:02.

would be extraordinary but it would not surprise me. They are so bright.

:12:03.:12:07.

The company has taken a battering over this. Shares are down 12% today

:12:08.:12:12.

alone and the poor old chief executive, who has suddenly found

:12:13.:12:22.

herself... Mind you, she came onto the news and answered questions. But

:12:23.:12:29.

she has said that any business in Britain could be vulnerable. My mind

:12:30.:12:39.

went back to Downing Street in roughly 1999 or 2000, and a senior

:12:40.:12:49.

government official saying to me, we don't do e-mails. Because they would

:12:50.:13:02.

be hacked, etc. . That was about the time that eBay game became a thing

:13:03.:13:05.

and I thought this was absolutely heading for the rocks -- e-banking.

:13:06.:13:15.

I hope it makes every other company, and the banks in particular, more

:13:16.:13:20.

cautious because everyone has to use Internet banking L and I hope it has

:13:21.:13:23.

made them all look at the way they run their books -- now. The Sun with

:13:24.:13:34.

a reputation for good headlines. This is not about one. They have

:13:35.:13:38.

caught it in along with everyone else. For the poor old bangers,

:13:39.:13:44.

eating just one and a half sausage is or two rashers of bacon today

:13:45.:13:48.

could increase your risk of cancer by up to 18%. I mean... I listen to

:13:49.:13:56.

this and I'm sorry, I'm one of those people who listens to this stuff,

:13:57.:14:03.

I'm affected today, I didn't have my sausage sandwich on the chain from

:14:04.:14:08.

Manchester -- train. I thought, do I really need this or am I killing

:14:09.:14:13.

myself? And I could see one or two other people doing that. Thinking

:14:14.:14:22.

about it. It does have an impact. It is interesting, as I said earlier.

:14:23.:14:26.

Follow the Mediterranean diet which is full of ham and salami, everyone

:14:27.:14:39.

says. Red wine. There is an enormous difference, I imagine there is a

:14:40.:14:47.

vast discrepancy in what is in different sausages. There has to be

:14:48.:14:53.

some sort of qualification. And we have always preserved to meet, that

:14:54.:15:02.

is how it lasted before we had fridges -- preserved meat. About

:15:03.:15:07.

once a fortnight or so, it is hard to believe that would do

:15:08.:15:13.

once a fortnight or so, it is hard to believe that would you any harm.

:15:14.:15:16.

Also won a lovely picture of Daniel Craig and his wife. Can we see

:15:17.:15:21.

that? Been on the picture and made it is because I

:15:22.:15:31.

would like to see it. It is an unusual picture. On to being

:15:32.:15:41.

attacked from behind. She's putting her around him and having a laugh --

:15:42.:15:44.

Bond. The premiere of the new James Bond movie was tonight at the Royal

:15:45.:15:47.

Albert Hall, showing what a big event it was. Are you going to go

:15:48.:15:55.

and see it? I eventually will. I'm one of those people who hates

:15:56.:15:58.

violence in the cinema. I can't watch it. I want entertainment and I

:15:59.:16:05.

like romance and comedy but I don't necessarily want violence and I'm

:16:06.:16:08.

worried about these stories, there is question of violence in this

:16:09.:16:17.

film. The Daily Mail has the Duchess of Cambridge herself. People are so

:16:18.:16:22.

interested in what she is wearing and how she looks, and she looks

:16:23.:16:27.

immaculate as always. However beautiful you are, when you're

:16:28.:16:29.

having to compete with film stars comment is tough. Thank you.

:16:30.:16:41.
