We will start with two or three papers that are looking at the


ongoing developments in the Russian airliner crash that happened a week


ago. Here is how The Times are reporting it, bomber blew plane


departed black box experts. They say that a bomb could be heard 20


minutes into the flight. According to the report is that we are hearing


which not been confirmed this explosion did not sound like a


technical issues that we seem to be edging closer to the ball theory. If


we can hear a sound in the background of this black box does


seem to point to even more evidence. From the day of the crash itself, it


was spread over such a large area it felt like there had been an


explosion at high altitude and as the word now my -- and as there were


no Mayday signals it seems to be pointing in that direction. Egypt


and Russia have seemed to deny it but now they seem to be responding


and Russia seems to believe it could have been an act of terrorism


because it has stopped flights going to Sharm el-Sheikh as well.


Initially they were saying it could not be a missile because it was


flying too high and because of the way that the wreckage was scattered


on the ground. No, they are still saying it is something different but


not technical or pilot error. The Daily Mail have this story about a


passenger jet flying in August and a report that it narrowly missed a


missile which they say was from an Egyptian military exercise. We will


look at that any moment. The other way that this incident is being


reported is in the mirror on pages six and seven. It says that there is


a fiasco at the airport. A lot of people talking about the chaos.


People did not know if they were going to the plane back to the


terminal and David in limbo for a couple of days. We saw the


ambassador for Britain speaking to angry British people abroad asking


when they would be leaving. The Transport Secretary said this


morning that most Britons would be leaving and getting home, but we


only had eight planes that actually blew out. I think the general


consensus was that David Cameron had done the right thing and if it was


about security they were happy to wait, but they wanted to know what


was going on. People speaking to various news channels were saying


that they were finding out what was happening from British media reports


and not from people on the ground and Egypt. There seemed to have been


conflicting experiences for people. Some people were left with no


information but there were improvements in place insecurity


that make people feel safer, but the confusion at the end of the holiday


is not what you are expecting. There will have to be improvements because


security was absolutely dire. The good thing is at least significant


improvements can be made quickly, but at the same time it seems that


because they wanted the tourists to BB graduated leather luggage that


cost further delays. -- they wanted the tool is to leave without their


luggage and that caused further delays. 5000 people are stranded. It


has been very focused on British people who are stuck but there are


almost twice as many Russians who are there. It was a Russian plane


that went down. Some people are suggesting that things are being


sold because the Egyptians are tried to provoke a reaction and they are


annoyed that Britain jumped in there and said it was a bomb attack


because obviously that will have an impact on their two of them so they


want to do everything they can to calm people down. -- tourism. They


have just got over the last hiatus. You mentioned the story in the mail,


rocket attack on UK to reject. A pilot dodged a missile above Sharm


el-Sheikh. We do not have a huge amount to go on, have we? This was a


Thomson flight in August and it seems that the pilot spotted this


missile. Two months before the plane crash on Saturday, a pilot spotted a


rocket and took a bases action and it missed by around 1000 feet. From


the headline you would think this must be some kind of ices rocket,


but then they say that an Egyptian government spokesman investigated


the incident and they believe it was not a targeted attack and it was


likely to be connected to routine exercise is being conducted by the


Egyptian military. -- ices rocket. I think they are saying that to make


people feel more comfortable, but if the Egyptian military could of done


this in August there is much as they could have done last weekend as well


and it could have been friendly fire. Except if there was a bomb on


board. They have called it a bomb because they are presuming that ices


two cannot hit a plane at that height, and it opens up another


possible cause. It does leave other things open. According to this


report only does in the cockpit knew what might have been flying close


by. The only new because the site as it was happening and I think the


biggest question here is why there was no communication? Why did we not


know there were military exercises as we were flying over? How was that


allowed to happen? We do not know how high up this plane was flying


because the suggestion was with the jet that came down it was too high


to have been reached by a missile in the hands of militants, so it is an


alarming story but there are a lot of questions there. The Egyptians


have confirmed that they fired a rocket towards a plane, which is


astonishing. A couple of stories in the Telegraph, a battle over


military pay rises as they are denied automatic pay increases under


Osborne's controversial plans. Ministers are happy that they got


the 2% defence spending, but the issue is that many military


personnel believed that the government is spending too much


money on equipment and that we do not have an up men to man this


equipment. There is an eternal dispute going on and they are


arguing that if you do not give the incentive to stay you will have lots


of very high up and talented officers leaving to work in the


private sector and that this will just put people off joining when we


need people there. Why are we spending money on equipment when we


don't have the personnel to operate it? It is a peculiar message to


centre the Armed Forces, but it is money again, isn't it? This is


Jeremy Corbyn's argument against Trident why spend billions on


something that has no value to this country and that will never be used.


It is a deterrent. When these cuts are taking place and the boots on


the ground are being put in jeopardy. Another story in the


Telegraph, Prime Minister, everyone to have the right to fast broadband.


Rights are bestowed upon it and someone has to enable us to get


broadband of any sort in some places. Where I live in south London


you do not necessarily have the right to high-speed broadband, so I


am not sure. It is a great vision and we want every home to have


access to high-speed, but obviously it will take a lot of time and


digging and roadworks before that comes to fruition. It is a measure


of deprivation these days, not having access to the Internet.


People feel that it is their human rights. Just as you would expect to


have access to water and electricity, people feel that they


need the Internet. What is interesting is that the head of


columns and suffering -- is that the head of, says that people's


broadband are suffering because they have not put the richer in the right


place in the house. I need to move mine away from the phone. Now let us


look at The Express. There is a doctor crisis for the over 50s that


have struggling to see their GP on the day that they fall ill. I is


this relevant to the over 50s? I don't know because the story does


not say that they are comparing this with any other age group, they could


see that any age group struggle to see their GP. Maybe the research was


carried out by a group that deals with that age group. It does seem


interesting that they have chosen that age group. It does not save the


survey and other age groups or maybe it is because more over 50s need to


go to the doctor more than young people. I think that we all do. It


is not that you are elderly if you are over 50. That is not what I


said. There is a 50 year gap there. Maybe it is the elderly bit of that


group that would require GP services more than perhaps the under 50s. It


could be people who are in the 80s or 90s. Letters would get this


Financial Times story, the rise of its fighters as pensioners are


geared towards cheaper council. These are people who have withdrawn


their pension pot and they have to take advice and they cannot find any


human being to give it to them. There was a question at the time


that there were not enough people deployed to offer this advice. I


think this is like any kind of other service where they have to go


through the steps and a direct you. I do not know how well that will go


down with a lot of people who want to speak to a people's cutback


person. Financial professionals fear exposure to future complaints and


they demand high fees to price themselves out of the market. That


is why the automated service is required. It all boils down to the


fact that no people have the choice to get their annuities in one cash


sum and spend as they want on a Lamborghini if they want. I don't


think I've heard of anyone who has done that but I am waiting for a


couple of years to get the keys for mine. People now have access to an


awful lot of money but they will not know how to spend it they get it


wrong they get it wrong people live in poverty. Their final years will


be spent in real poverty. The professionals are now taking the


stance that they do not really want to deal with this or have the risk


and that is why this automated service has been put in place. The


pensions minister and former BBC papers reviewer says that she


welcomes all innovations. That is such a ridiculous statement. If PPI


a great innovation that people welcome? We need to look at this and


think it throws up really serious issues about whether people are


going to be getting the right advice for how they spend an awful lot of


money. When you need someone to talk you through the small print, this is


probably the most important thing. Whenever I speak to anyone I want to


speak to a real person. This is a massive issue. It is not as simple


as pressing a button to speak to someone about your washing machine,


it is about how to spend all your money. It will only cost you ?109


which is a fraction of the cost of getting advice elsewhere. It will


give you a report on 30-40 minutes. Surely, as a financial adviser, you


are professional and you should know what you are talking about. They are


realising that it is high risk. That is it, you survived it. We July to


come back at 11:30pm? -- would you like to come back. That is from for


now. You'll both be back at half
