Welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers


With me are Caroline Frost, entertainment editor


at the Huffington post and the Parliamentary journalist Tony Grew.


Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...


The FT has a story we've been covering here


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


book shop in a move the paper describes


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


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


oversee warrants for operations. It has previously been a government


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


forces against terrorists and crime suspects. It is a significant


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


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


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


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


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


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


not enough evidence to warrant the surveillance. The security services


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


their responsibilities. Unfortunately, the banding accounts


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Exactly. Suddenly everybody starts shifting. The thing about doctors


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


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


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


of support and outpourings of indignation for doctors and nurses.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Millions of people have put incorrect information on their tax


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


hugely sophisticated algorithms where if you liked one book, you


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


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


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


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


no coincidence that this is happening in the sweet purchasing


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


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


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


is the Australian Instagram lady with more than half a million


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Thank you to my guests Caroline Frost and Tony Grew.
