Welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers

:00:16.:00:17.

With me are Caroline Frost, entertainment editor

:00:18.:00:20.

at the Huffington post and the Parliamentary journalist Tony Grew.

:00:21.:00:34.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:35.:00:37.

The FT has a story we've been covering here

:00:38.:00:40.

on BBC News this evening, saying Amazon is to open a high street

:00:41.:00:43.

book shop in a move the paper describes

:00:44.:00:45.

A panel of ten specialist judges will be able to veto anti- terror

:00:46.:00:57.

actions, in the Times? They will be able to execute responsibility to

:00:58.:01:02.

oversee warrants for operations. It has previously been a government

:01:03.:01:06.

operation, something the government have been fighting. It also gives us

:01:07.:01:12.

a heads up of the scale of the anti- terror operations going on. The Home

:01:13.:01:19.

Secretary is going to announce it tomorrow? What do you think security

:01:20.:01:23.

services will think of this? It is a hugely significant change in the way

:01:24.:01:29.

it thinks are done in Britain. For many other countries it is a vital

:01:30.:01:36.

part of their structures. The Secretaries of State for Britain and

:01:37.:01:40.

Northern Ireland have been the only ones who could authorise the police

:01:41.:01:46.

forces against terrorists and crime suspects. It is a significant

:01:47.:01:51.

change. A step away from the executive, towards judicial? What

:01:52.:01:55.

will happen is those ministers will still issue permission for warrants.

:01:56.:02:01.

It does show the scale of what the security services are issuing, seven

:02:02.:02:09.

a day. We will need a significant swathe of judges. These operations

:02:10.:02:16.

can also be very time sensitive. Ministers will issued the warrants,

:02:17.:02:21.

judges will have the opportunity to strike them if they feel there is

:02:22.:02:25.

not enough evidence to warrant the surveillance. The security services

:02:26.:02:30.

could find themselves in a situation where the government wants to go

:02:31.:02:33.

ahead and the judges have voted it down. Would wonder how often the

:02:34.:02:38.

judges would say no to the security services. They are not judges who

:02:39.:02:43.

are, by trade, experts in this field of surveillance and intelligence.

:02:44.:02:46.

They would have to be specially trained in these parts, whereas the

:02:47.:02:51.

security services have a long history of dealing with it. Let's

:02:52.:02:57.

talk about The Metro, quite a few of the papers have quite prominently

:02:58.:03:03.

featured the news that junior doctors will be offered an 11% pay

:03:04.:03:12.

rise. That is to call off the strike that has been threatened. Apparently

:03:13.:03:16.

the BMA are rather sceptical? It reminds me of when the NHS was

:03:17.:03:25.

founded, which was that they stop the doctor's mouths with gold --

:03:26.:03:36.

stuffed. Jeremy Hunt wants to remove a complex banding system within the

:03:37.:03:40.

way to new doctors are paid. They will get paid extra depending on

:03:41.:03:45.

their responsibilities. Unfortunately, the banding accounts

:03:46.:03:53.

for about 40% over the basic pay for junior doctors, so he is talking

:03:54.:03:59.

about an 11% rise in basic pay. It seems that doctors are still very

:04:00.:04:03.

sceptical about it. Jeremy Hunt wants to avoid a strike of EV could

:04:04.:04:08.

cool winter period for the NHS. It will remain to be seen what the

:04:09.:04:12.

doctors make obvious and whether they will go for it. At the moment,

:04:13.:04:18.

given the anger amongst the BMA and junior doctors, I'm not sure if it

:04:19.:04:24.

will be enough. He could be facing significant industrial action. Other

:04:25.:04:30.

public sector workers might say, they are getting 11%, we want more.

:04:31.:04:37.

Exactly. Suddenly everybody starts shifting. The thing about doctors

:04:38.:04:41.

and nurses is that traditionally, they do have the public on their

:04:42.:04:45.

side in a way that perhaps other public sector workers do not. For

:04:46.:04:51.

example, in my social media feeds all you see at sympathetic offerings

:04:52.:04:56.

of support and outpourings of indignation for doctors and nurses.

:04:57.:05:01.

They have a big and colourful demonstration, the other day they

:05:02.:05:10.

had quite a big one. -- had. The whole idea of card sharks, grasping

:05:11.:05:19.

credit card companies are trapping people in a cycle of debt. Up to 5

:05:20.:05:27.

million people? It is an interesting front page for the Sun. They are

:05:28.:05:34.

talking about the fact that, as you said, there is ?61 billion of credit

:05:35.:05:38.

card debt in Britain. There are 2 million people in arrears, 1.6

:05:39.:05:49.

million paying the minimum amount and this page is saying that the

:05:50.:05:55.

undercut companies are not doing in. Out, keeping people in debt is more

:05:56.:06:02.

profitable for them? That is certainly what the Sun is saying --

:06:03.:06:10.

but. The sun is calling for more help for these people. Would you say

:06:11.:06:17.

it is the responsibility of the credit card companies or those who

:06:18.:06:26.

have the debt? There is some advice, there are organisations. This report

:06:27.:06:30.

comes from the Financial Conduct Authority, so it might just be a

:06:31.:06:40.

first step. There could be penalties and sanctions if they don't deal

:06:41.:06:47.

with it. Is the sub headline a bit harsh? They provide a service

:06:48.:06:57.

whereby people can get hold of money quickly, so perhaps... There will be

:06:58.:07:04.

people who see those words as they tautology, -- a, but Ken Clarke was

:07:05.:07:15.

quoted as saying if everyone was forced to clear their mortgages they

:07:16.:07:22.

would have only half a month's worth of savings. We are all in debt.

:07:23.:07:26.

Speaking of debt, let's talk about the tax man. The Telegraph have a

:07:27.:07:34.

story about the tax man zero entering his phone. Half of the

:07:35.:07:43.

calls go unanswered. This is a report, for years they have been

:07:44.:07:54.

telling the government that it is a shambles and now it is even worse.

:07:55.:08:00.

Millions of people have put incorrect information on their tax

:08:01.:08:03.

forms because they cannot speak to someone. It questions whether the

:08:04.:08:07.

government is doing a good enough job of raising the tax threshold.

:08:08.:08:15.

There are significant cuts to public services and benefits. It is not

:08:16.:08:21.

just about hate MRC, you'll also about the -- it is also about the

:08:22.:08:31.

effects of tax -- HMRC. People just want to talk to someone online, as

:08:32.:08:36.

well. Taking a phone call is more Labour intensive. They would have to

:08:37.:08:40.

really consider it worth their while financially to make that kind of

:08:41.:08:45.

decision. On the same page, the taxman is getting it again for

:08:46.:08:52.

failing to penalise wealthy tax evaders. Trying to get away from

:08:53.:09:03.

financial matters, the Times and the express have got this report which

:09:04.:09:11.

sounds very interesting. If you go for a stiff walk for half-an-hour,

:09:12.:09:16.

it is actually better than going to the gym all calling for a run. I

:09:17.:09:19.

don't quite understand how it works? I don't understand either --

:09:20.:09:31.

going. It appears to be taken from the annual health survey for England

:09:32.:09:44.

between 1999-2012. -- or. Scientists believe because humans have been

:09:45.:09:49.

walking upright, it is a natural behaviour that may reduce the risk

:09:50.:09:55.

of obesity. They talk about men and women of the age of 50 experiencing

:09:56.:10:02.

strong benefits. This has reached a sweet spot in terms of not being too

:10:03.:10:06.

demanding. We know that if any incentives are made too demanding,

:10:07.:10:11.

British public will tear it up. A 30 minute walk, five days a week. We

:10:12.:10:16.

all think we are probably capable of it. Do you do it? May be. I walk

:10:17.:10:32.

around in circles -- maybe. I follow their instructions of not going to

:10:33.:10:37.

the gym. A half-hour walk is very good view. -- good for you. The FT,

:10:38.:10:49.

Amazon kind of reinventing the wheel. They are opening a real

:10:50.:10:57.

bookshop in Seattle which sells real books in a real shop with shelves?

:10:58.:11:02.

Its history has gone full circle. This is the great machine that has

:11:03.:11:13.

put so many independent booksellers at of business. For them to suddenly

:11:14.:11:19.

sniffed the zeitgeist and think they will now give something back to the

:11:20.:11:23.

community May be regarded with very wry chuckles. I wonder if it is a

:11:24.:11:32.

1-off? I think what they are more interested in is the consumer

:11:33.:11:41.

behaviour. I'd say that was their interest. It is a response to the

:11:42.:11:49.

market. It makes an interesting point, the way that Amazon's

:11:50.:11:52.

business model works is that it takes orders from people, get their

:11:53.:11:57.

money and then purchasers the books. It is the opposite of a traditional

:11:58.:12:01.

bookseller, who has two buy the stock and hope people will come in

:12:02.:12:06.

and buy it. As you said, it is completely alien to the whole

:12:07.:12:13.

business model. The idea of wandering into a bookshop and having

:12:14.:12:17.

a browse around, looking at the books, it has kind of gone out the

:12:18.:12:22.

window? You can't do that on the Amazon website. It tries to, it has

:12:23.:12:26.

hugely sophisticated algorithms where if you liked one book, you

:12:27.:12:30.

might also like this. But, it is a machine. Do you prefer physical

:12:31.:12:38.

books? Yes. Yes. No algorithm will ever be able to recreate what

:12:39.:12:47.

happens when you go into a shop and see the actual physical look. --

:12:48.:12:57.

book. It is about having their way of it in your hand. It is probably

:12:58.:13:01.

no coincidence that this is happening in the sweet purchasing

:13:02.:13:04.

months just before Christmas. You can't give somebody a file... Well,

:13:05.:13:14.

you can but... You could buy them an e-book. Talking about things that

:13:15.:13:21.

are new, talking about Instagram which is a favourite with many. This

:13:22.:13:30.

is the Australian Instagram lady with more than half a million

:13:31.:13:34.

followers, who quit saying it is not real life? That's a shock. Why did

:13:35.:13:43.

she think it was real life? People her age are blurring the lines.

:13:44.:13:51.

There is a watt of data of people between 15 to 25, their identity

:13:52.:13:58.

kind of has a word combination of online and real life -- a lot. What

:13:59.:14:07.

she has done is, she is very popular amongst young women. She has deleted

:14:08.:14:13.

thousands of photos but also gone back to some photos and pointed out

:14:14.:14:17.

that they are fake. She has recaptured a photo inset, I was paid

:14:18.:14:28.

to wear is -- these clothes. She also said she used to be one of

:14:29.:14:34.

these women who looked at perfect women on Instagram and wanted to be

:14:35.:14:38.

them. Now she is one, and it doesn't mean anything. It is a message but

:14:39.:14:43.

it is not going to stop anything with Instagram. I am wondering how

:14:44.:14:50.

she got the message out. She made an 80 minute YouTube video.

:14:51.:14:54.

Thank you to my guests Caroline Frost and Tony Grew.

:14:55.:14:58.

Coming up next, it's time for Sportsday.
