in commodity markets for a decade. The i reports on the floods in the

on the front of the Telegraph at the London premiere

:00:47.:00:51.

of his new film, The Danish Girl. Its lead story is the anger in

:00:52.:00:54.

Britain over Donal Trump's comments. Its main picture is

:00:55.:01:04.

of the rock band Eagles of Death Metal who visited the scene

:01:05.:01:08.

of one of the Paris attacks today. The Metro leads on demands from MPs

:01:09.:01:12.

to ban Mr Trump from this country. The Mail describes Mr Trump's

:01:13.:01:15.

remarks as 'incendiary'. And the Times says thousands of

:01:16.:01:18.

criminals will have their jail terms cut under plans by Michael Gove to

:01:19.:01:22.

lower the prison population. I am sure we will be coming to

:01:23.:01:36.

Donald Trump, but we will start with the Guardian and the flood. An

:01:37.:01:41.

interesting story at the bottom, Tories face grid is over delayed

:01:42.:01:49.

defences in flood zones -- criticism. It is said that there is

:01:50.:01:56.

a plan to put in a ?4 million project to protect houses from

:01:57.:02:02.

flooding which has not happened. He wants to talk to David Cameron about

:02:03.:02:05.

it and find out why it has not happened because it was a vital

:02:06.:02:12.

funding in 2011. Had that project gone ahead, and it does look like it

:02:13.:02:17.

should have, people would not be suffering in the way they have been

:02:18.:02:22.

suffering now. There is a big issue about the flooding, which is, there

:02:23.:02:27.

is lots of evidence where it shows it is very difficult to prevent this

:02:28.:02:31.

because our weather patterns have changed. We now have these huge and

:02:32.:02:41.

heavy rain falls, which I don't think we have experienced. It is

:02:42.:02:47.

something that is happening more often than not now. It is very

:02:48.:02:54.

difficult to know how to defend these places, as far as I can see.

:02:55.:02:59.

Also, if you look at any system of public works it is always behind.

:03:00.:03:05.

Always being left behind and there are many inexplicable reason. It is

:03:06.:03:14.

always the case. Not only was the rain falling in 24-hour is, it is

:03:15.:03:18.

the most rain that has fallen in Britain since records began in the

:03:19.:03:25.

early 1800. We have also had since 2000, six of the wettest years on

:03:26.:03:32.

record. How far ahead you predict that these floods will rise. These

:03:33.:03:39.

areas have had more rain than they have ever had before, so of course

:03:40.:03:47.

they flooded. Given that the scheme was completed and signed off on, and

:03:48.:03:51.

everybody thought it would work, but it didn't. There is no guarantee

:03:52.:04:00.

that this ?5.1 million that would have been spent would have made a

:04:01.:04:06.

difference. It is a moot point. I would not jump and down on my high

:04:07.:04:12.

horse about it. The argument is that the floodplains have been built on,

:04:13.:04:20.

and so the places that naturally flooded and then went back and now

:04:21.:04:25.

been built on it. I remember when I was a kid, and I grew up on a river

:04:26.:04:38.

and we went to school now -- on a canoe. It is terrible. You must have

:04:39.:04:48.

covered flood stories and it is horrible. It is beyond description,

:04:49.:04:55.

the stench, the destruction. Many of these places become I'm in -- many

:04:56.:05:14.

of these places cannot be insured. Let us turn to Donald Trump. It is

:05:15.:05:30.

hard to avoid him. The Mail have called on him regarding his claims

:05:31.:05:41.

to say that parts of Britain are no go areas because of Islamic

:05:42.:05:44.

extremism. He has the ability to grab headlines. He just doesn't

:05:45.:05:52.

care. He's quite to lash out over here while simultaneously making the

:05:53.:06:00.

comment about United States. As they say, in a very rare political

:06:01.:06:05.

intervention, Scotland Yard within hours of hearing about this

:06:06.:06:09.

statement issued a statement saying that he could not be more wrong. You

:06:10.:06:14.

would expect them to say that that the British police have no go areas,

:06:15.:06:18.

but I happen to think that it is true. I can't remember a signal

:06:19.:06:24.

story in the last five to ten years when Islamic extremism became the

:06:25.:06:29.

feature that it is in our society, I can't remember ever hearing an

:06:30.:06:32.

allegation that there was the cancellation of streets and areas

:06:33.:06:36.

that they police would not go to, including mosques. Obviously, they

:06:37.:06:40.

tread carefully, but there are regions with mosques and I have seen

:06:41.:06:46.

police being a force there. This is Donald Trump making it up as he goes

:06:47.:06:54.

along and he will say anything. I just find him so contemptible. You

:06:55.:07:02.

interviewed him, what was he like? Ghastly. I can't decide if it is the

:07:03.:07:12.

same one, his hair. He wandered around being very rich and

:07:13.:07:16.

powerful, Master of the universe type. But you said that he failed to

:07:17.:07:25.

get this across to you but he came off as a little twerp. But it is

:07:26.:07:32.

horrible because people are taking it seriously. He was preaching to

:07:33.:07:40.

the converted. I think it is just not as what he is saying.

:07:41.:07:44.

Interesting, he has made the front page of many papers, not just here

:07:45.:07:48.

but on the other side of the Atlantic as well. There is a lot of

:07:49.:07:57.

Twitter action about him. He has the same programme, but can you imagine

:07:58.:08:02.

someone like dust being so stupid like this running for office. He

:08:03.:08:09.

would have lots of money to make that happen. In the Daily Mirror

:08:10.:08:19.

someone else outrage is twice -- Tyson Fury. After his homophobic

:08:20.:08:28.

rant the cops are looking into him. I don't know if the cops are looking

:08:29.:08:34.

into this slur, but everything I've read about this story, I think it is

:08:35.:08:38.

clear that he has done nothing illegal. I don't think he is

:08:39.:08:43.

inciting race hatred, he is simply expressing extreme opinions which

:08:44.:08:49.

most people consider ridiculous. Homophobia though? He did not quite

:08:50.:09:02.

equated to paedophilia, but from the analysis, objectionable as it may

:09:03.:09:06.

be, it wasn't specifically illegal that he should be prosecuted for. I

:09:07.:09:13.

think that the real interesting story is what the BBC is going to do

:09:14.:09:19.

over the sport award. He has been nominated by a panel which then

:09:20.:09:22.

refers to the BBC for Sports Personality of the Year. What the

:09:23.:09:26.

BBC are saying is that they have no right to make a political judgement.

:09:27.:09:30.

He has not done anything illegal, therefore, as the new world champion

:09:31.:09:34.

he is entitled to be put in that category for the public to vote for

:09:35.:09:41.

that. I would disagree with you. To be nominated as Sports Personality

:09:42.:09:48.

of the Year is something in the round, but if he was monitored as

:09:49.:09:51.

British boxer of the year it would be hard to say that that cannot go

:09:52.:09:54.

through. I think we can all feel that what we are talking about is

:09:55.:09:59.

the person in the round, everything that makes him a human being, not

:10:00.:10:03.

just a sportsman, the way that they behave, what with charity and how

:10:04.:10:09.

they act with other people. How can this guy devoted as a personality be

:10:10.:10:14.

accepted in a real way? I agree with Richard. I don't think you can be

:10:15.:10:23.

voted sports personality of the year if he holds his views that most

:10:24.:10:29.

people find it very difficult. It is something that most people find

:10:30.:10:35.

offensive. I'm not quite sure how the interview happened and how his

:10:36.:10:38.

management team did not go in and sit on him. It is a sports

:10:39.:10:46.

personality. USA that he should be judged on the sports personality

:10:47.:10:49.

where as the BBC are saying he should be judged on his sporting

:10:50.:10:56.

prowess. You cannot remove the words personality from the equation. I

:10:57.:11:00.

feel that it should be someone that people can look up to and look what

:11:01.:11:03.

they've done, haven't they done well and aren't they a decent person and

:11:04.:11:10.

fabulously committed person. That put things in jeopardy. I can

:11:11.:11:13.

understand that he did something that was incredible and that is why

:11:14.:11:19.

his name is in the mix, 100,000 people have signed a petition and I

:11:20.:11:26.

think we should... We will see what the BBC does next. This is a

:11:27.:11:34.

terrible story about Andrew Waters whose son with Down's syndrome could

:11:35.:11:48.

not be resuscitated. It is terrible. This boy was in hospital with an

:11:49.:11:54.

infection and on the nights that he has had down syndrome, it said that

:11:55.:12:02.

do not resuscitate. One of the reasons why was because he had down

:12:03.:12:08.

syndrome. That was not discussed with the family, they had not

:12:09.:12:12.

discussed that at all. They then found out that that had happened and

:12:13.:12:16.

quite rightly, are utterly appalled. I think it is really

:12:17.:12:35.

shocking and perhaps off to the Sun -- hats off. It is something we need

:12:36.:12:43.

to look at. It is an effective front page. You are right because the

:12:44.:12:50.

truly shocking nature of this, as in all these cases of these no

:12:51.:12:55.

resuscitate issues, they have to list all of the factors. And he was

:12:56.:13:00.

dying, and he recovered, but he was dying. One of them was not Down

:13:01.:13:07.

syndrome, but they put it down. It is terrible finding out afterward.

:13:08.:13:12.

The reason the family found out, when he recovered and came home to a

:13:13.:13:15.

welcome home party come though I'm packing his bag and they found the

:13:16.:13:20.

notice that had been crumpled up and thrown into a pot of his bag. It was

:13:21.:13:25.

incompetence on a gross scale and to their credit, the hospital has

:13:26.:13:30.

profusely apologise, as they should. It has been a real campaign.

:13:31.:13:40.

It will run and run, and a lot of people will find it quite offensive.

:13:41.:13:44.

That us try to squeeze in two stories. -- let. Prisoners tried to

:13:45.:13:59.

have their jail terms cut. We are being told we are to be tougher on

:14:00.:14:02.

criminals, and a long sender should mean it. The reality is that the

:14:03.:14:07.

prisons are overcrowded and we don't have enough sales to be

:14:08.:14:10.

accommodated, so we let them out early. It is just an endless lunar

:14:11.:14:16.

cycle that does not seem to stop. What can you say. It is to predict

:14:17.:14:21.

will. Next time you see a politician saying that the policy of this

:14:22.:14:25.

government is that the prisoner should serve their time and do

:14:26.:14:29.

longer a to think in six months time... People get sentenced. They

:14:30.:14:41.

say that they will be released moments early if they can go home.

:14:42.:14:47.

Who is going to put them on the bus? And finally, middle class

:14:48.:14:55.

children are bigger drinkers. Is a report that has come out that

:14:56.:15:07.

the young people from middle-class backgrounds are more likely to have

:15:08.:15:11.

tried alcohol, and they are talking about at home. I imagine they are

:15:12.:15:15.

talking about a sort of glass of wine with a meal from a young age

:15:16.:15:21.

and they will go on to be much bigger drinkers than other kids from

:15:22.:15:25.

lower social starts. It is this thing about following the French

:15:26.:15:27.

model, if you present your children as they grow up with a glass of

:15:28.:15:33.

water and a glass of wine, they will learn to drink responsibly. It is

:15:34.:15:37.

true in France, they have much less drunken behaviour on the streets.

:15:38.:15:41.

But I have to say this, cirrhosis of the liver is much more common that

:15:42.:15:44.

it is here because a lot more children start drinking earlier. You

:15:45.:15:48.

are finger-pointing now, and we've got to leave it there. That's it

:15:49.:15:53.

from the papers. Lovely to talk to you. Coming up next, it is

:15:54.:15:54.

Sportsday.

:15:55.:16:08.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
