respects to Howard Kendall. And, the best of the action from the

:00:00.:00:00.

world gymnastics Championships in Glasgow.

:00:00.:00:13.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:14.:00:15.

With me are the former trade minister Lord Digby Jones

:00:16.:00:21.

Let's have a look at those front pages, or some of them. The

:00:22.:00:35.

Financial Times says David Cameron and George Osborne are looking for

:00:36.:00:39.

an emergency brake on laws affecting economies outside the US own. A new

:00:40.:00:48.

report here saying that young people suffering the worst economic for

:00:49.:00:52.

several generations. The Independent has the beast that China has

:00:53.:00:55.

announced the end of its one child policy. The Guardian features the

:00:56.:01:02.

China story along with the news that the report from the Chilcott enquiry

:01:03.:01:05.

into the Iraq war is scheduled to appear next summer. Spending on

:01:06.:01:10.

credit is at its highest for a decade, borrowers owe ?176 billion,

:01:11.:01:16.

according to the Metro. The Telegraph says one Anne Boleyn 's

:01:17.:01:19.

trust is making patients wake twice as long for help if they dial 111,

:01:20.:01:25.

even if have a life-threatening condition. The police have demanded

:01:26.:01:30.

the power to see the Internet browsing history of everybody in

:01:31.:01:33.

Britain. And a police pilot scheme is telling victims of crime to call

:01:34.:01:41.

them on Skype. Let's get started, with the Financial Times. This is a

:01:42.:01:51.

bit complex, on picket a bit. The top helicopter view would be that

:01:52.:01:55.

this will happen a lull in the next few months, a newspaper of an

:01:56.:01:59.

inclination ovary give up, and they will lead with a leak or

:02:00.:02:05.

understanding that puts the state in Europe or, out of Europe argument

:02:06.:02:11.

onto the front page. No other newspaper is carrying this, the

:02:12.:02:15.

others refer to it in little columns. It is a leak, the Financial

:02:16.:02:23.

Times wants to stay in Europe, they say you have the Eurozone and these

:02:24.:02:33.

19 countries, amongst 28 of the EU, in one currency, one basic financial

:02:34.:02:37.

management, with all of the problems that causes, and the biggest

:02:38.:02:44.

financial centre in the world, with respect to New York, is London, it

:02:45.:02:50.

is not in the euro. You have got this impetus in Brussels, mainly led

:02:51.:02:56.

by the French, who say, we will do anything to move the power out of

:02:57.:03:00.

London and into Frankfurt, into Paris. If you are London, you say,

:03:01.:03:06.

we want to be in the EU but not the euro. We cannot understand why you

:03:07.:03:11.

keep passing these laws which are hurting London more than anywhere

:03:12.:03:15.

else. If you are in the Eurozone, you say it is because we do not want

:03:16.:03:22.

another 2008 crisis, but outside, you say, it has worked for years.

:03:23.:03:27.

George Osborne and David Cameron are going to Brussels and saying, as

:03:28.:03:32.

part of the reform package I want to put to the British people, will you

:03:33.:03:37.

say you will leave our market alone and stop interfering? If you are

:03:38.:03:40.

friends, you will say, certainly not. If you are London, you will

:03:41.:03:47.

say, yes, I do. Spin doctor work going on, they are under pressure to

:03:48.:03:53.

say what their stance is, because a number of countries and foreign

:03:54.:03:57.

ministers have said, we do not know what the Brits are negotiating.

:03:58.:04:05.

There is pressure on those who stay in against those who stay out,

:04:06.:04:08.

because we do not know with or not being Norway or Switzerland will

:04:09.:04:14.

make us more independent, stronger, able to organise bilateral deals

:04:15.:04:20.

with, say, India, China or the US. This is apparently the key thing for

:04:21.:04:23.

George Osborne in the negotiation which will strike people as bizarre,

:04:24.:04:29.

because it is technocratic, they would have expected the key plank to

:04:30.:04:36.

be migration, subsidies. David Cameron will make immigration high

:04:37.:04:42.

up the agenda, but for George Osborne, this is very important. In

:04:43.:04:49.

the first paragraph of the first column, it breaks into something

:04:50.:04:52.

else which strikes me as important, Standard and Poors warned, you come

:04:53.:04:57.

out of Europe, we will cut your rating. That is a wonderful scare

:04:58.:05:02.

story put out by those who want to stay in Europe. There will be

:05:03.:05:09.

another one that will say, if you do not come out, it will be the other

:05:10.:05:14.

way. You will get a lot of this. These are independent agencies with

:05:15.:05:23.

couple bottomed reputations. No. They have opinions, like everybody

:05:24.:05:27.

else. It depends what governs their opinions. The thing that gets me is,

:05:28.:05:36.

if you are heading for a negotiation on reform, you do not want to say, I

:05:37.:05:42.

am going after that, because when you do not get it, you have failed

:05:43.:05:47.

before you even start. At some point, you have to declare your

:05:48.:05:53.

hand. We are agreeing! If you do not do that, somebody like me, I do not

:05:54.:05:59.

want to stay in and on reform Europe,... What does reform look

:06:00.:06:10.

like? Is this reform? There will be so much of this. Henry, the Daily

:06:11.:06:15.

Telegraph, the top story, patients punished. Yes, for calling 111, the

:06:16.:06:22.

alternative to 909. People often call it because they may have deemed

:06:23.:06:26.

their condition. To have been life-threatening. Or they do not

:06:27.:06:36.

want to burden the 999 system. The service, is Coast ambulance, decided

:06:37.:06:41.

to delay helpful patients who may have suffered from strokes or other

:06:42.:06:43.

potentially lethal conditions because they called 111 instead of

:06:44.:06:50.

999. If they had called 999, and Anne Boleyn 's should get to you

:06:51.:06:55.

within eight or nine minutes, but this service allowed itself an extra

:06:56.:06:58.

ten minutes to reach those people. This is a bridge of the rules, the

:06:59.:07:03.

NHS is investigating. I live in that area. Kent, Surrey. We were talking

:07:04.:07:11.

about this, it is difficult to understand why. A rule introduced

:07:12.:07:19.

without consent from on high to say, dial 111, we will take 18 minutes,

:07:20.:07:25.

dial 999, we will take eight minutes, but what is the

:07:26.:07:31.

justification? It seems as though an administrator is arbitrarily doing

:07:32.:07:38.

it. Unless somebody says that as a rule, it is playing with lives. The

:07:39.:07:45.

thing that will annoy people, this trust is refusing, despite attempts

:07:46.:07:51.

by the media, to say how many patients have been affected, whether

:07:52.:07:56.

anybody died or who introduced it. It says, we look after Nick Owen! As

:07:57.:08:04.

long as he is dialling 111, we will get there within 30 seconds! When it

:08:05.:08:10.

comes to the NHS, everybody knows there is greater demand, but do more

:08:11.:08:17.

funding to with it at your peril, especially at local level. Your

:08:18.:08:25.

turn, divided written, generation betrayed, this is one of their

:08:26.:08:30.

special stories. It has been carried in the Independent as well, the

:08:31.:08:35.

sister paper. What are they saying? Take spot on, this is one of the

:08:36.:08:39.

great unspoken divisions in our society. The worst economic

:08:40.:08:46.

prospects for generations. How old were you when you bought your first

:08:47.:08:55.

house? About 21. 21. 26. This lot are going to be 30, 35, that is one

:08:56.:09:03.

of the best ways of explaining this. I am not sure people will be buying

:09:04.:09:06.

houses like they'd used to. They cannot afford it, most of them will

:09:07.:09:11.

live to their 90s, so they will have to save more for their retirement

:09:12.:09:14.

and have pension contributions taken off them, so they will have less

:09:15.:09:19.

spend ability, they cannot look forward to the same size of

:09:20.:09:22.

pension, they will work longer and have less at the end of it. They can

:09:23.:09:29.

not afford to buy a house. There is an educational side, this has come

:09:30.:09:34.

from the equality and human rights commission, Watchdog, look at a huge

:09:35.:09:40.

range of socio economic groups, and white schoolboys born into poverty

:09:41.:09:45.

fare the worst in education, bottom, below a range of other

:09:46.:09:49.

ethnic groups, including African Caribbean boys, who were receiving

:09:50.:09:54.

great attention for a long time, 28.3% of white boys receiving free

:09:55.:10:03.

school meals got five GCSEs in England, Chinese pupils, even those

:10:04.:10:08.

on free school meals, got around 76.8%. It is not just a British

:10:09.:10:15.

issue, it is a western democracy issue, America, France, Germany,

:10:16.:10:22.

Australia, Canada. I am not too sure it is relevant. It is another

:10:23.:10:27.

barometer. You are talking about age of first house. Comparing with China

:10:28.:10:34.

is not a fair comparison. It is Chinese children in Britain. What is

:10:35.:10:40.

important is no politician of any party will have a fix. Society has

:10:41.:10:48.

gone past that, we were the baby boom generation, people came home

:10:49.:10:51.

from the war, and they bred like bunny rabbits. It is true. You had a

:10:52.:10:57.

bulge in the population, and they never had it so good. The medical

:10:58.:11:05.

advances, employment, they were building houses. The story does not

:11:06.:11:18.

say who has betrayed whom. Is this generation -- has this generation

:11:19.:11:22.

been betrayed, and by whom? The implication is that we have done it.

:11:23.:11:29.

Guilty as charged? You have become the oldest oration, where you had

:11:30.:11:36.

been part of your own generation! China. What an introduction! I do

:11:37.:11:43.

not want to associate myself with that! It came from Digby! It

:11:44.:11:53.

abandons its famous policy. Introduced by the former premier,

:11:54.:12:00.

because he and the Politburo were concerned about a booming

:12:01.:12:04.

population. And the terror of famine. They credit it with

:12:05.:12:12.

preventing an extra 400 million births, but the population still

:12:13.:12:15.

stands at nearly 1.4 billion. They are relaxing the rules, people will

:12:16.:12:19.

be allowed to have two children as opposed to one. Some say this is

:12:20.:12:24.

good, it shows that the Politburo is listening and understands and can --

:12:25.:12:30.

but others say they are doing it for economic reasons because the

:12:31.:12:34.

population is too old. They are going to get old before they get

:12:35.:12:39.

rich. This will take a long time. It is generational, and in so many

:12:40.:12:48.

parts of China this policy felt away as China got richer, and people did

:12:49.:12:52.

not impose it quite so much, and so they are calling it for what it has

:12:53.:12:57.

been. I am sure that is not for the whole of China. What we have to

:12:58.:13:01.

understand is they have a deep fear of famine. This sorted that out, but

:13:02.:13:07.

the price they have paid is that they do not have enough people in

:13:08.:13:12.

their 40s and 50s, especially men, to look after the 70 and

:13:13.:13:18.

80-year-olds, so you have got loads of 70 and 80-year-olds who are

:13:19.:13:22.

falling on the state as a burden, because they have none of the family

:13:23.:13:29.

to look after them. And the issue of infanticide, and 30 million or so

:13:30.:13:32.

Chinese men will not be able to find a Chinese partner. History shows

:13:33.:13:38.

that countries with large numbers of unmarried or partnered men are more

:13:39.:13:41.

likely to pursue aggressive militaristic foreign policy is. We

:13:42.:13:45.

have to stop, thank you. We have rushed through. I should call! We

:13:46.:13:54.

might come to that. If we are lucky. It is time now, I think, for

:13:55.:13:58.
