Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:17.:00:19.

With me are sports writer for the Sun Martin Lipton, and broadcaster

:00:20.:00:25.

The Times says David Cameron has been warned that 300,000 Britons

:00:26.:00:32.

will lose entitlement to in-work benefits if he accepts a Brussels

:00:33.:00:35.

compromise on welfare restrictions for EU migrants.

:00:36.:00:41.

The Guardian leads on deaths in the NHS, saying Health Secretary

:00:42.:00:44.

Jeremy Hunt is under pressure to hold a nationwide inquiry.

:00:45.:00:53.

And there is a big photo of the BBC's Sports Personality

:00:54.:00:56.

The Independent says six alleged victims of child abuse,

:00:57.:00:59.

at the hands, they claim, of the late Labour peer Lord Janner,

:01:00.:01:03.

are to press ahead with a claim for compensation.

:01:04.:01:05.

David Cameron is preparing to send out a document to the public,

:01:06.:01:08.

ahead of a referendum on the UK's membership of the European Union,

:01:09.:01:11.

That is according to the Daily Telegraph, who say it will infuriate

:01:12.:01:15.

The Mirror says the SAS will be called in to help guard the England,

:01:16.:01:19.

Wales and Northern Ireland teams from terror attacks at the Euro 2016

:01:20.:01:22.

tournament in France, along with a picture of the wedding of Christine

:01:23.:01:25.

While the Daily Mail warns that nine out of ten hospitals are being hit

:01:26.:01:30.

by a shortage of nurses, which it says puts patient safety at risk.

:01:31.:01:40.

Let us begin with the Telegraph, then. The headline is Cameron

:01:41.:01:49.

dossier to make the case for EU. This is risking, according to the

:01:50.:01:54.

paper, a Cabinet rebellion as the Prime Minister prepares to send out

:01:55.:01:57.

a document and families before the poll. They haven't even finished the

:01:58.:02:02.

renegotiation. No, but I think we know where it is going. Cameron is

:02:03.:02:07.

clearly going to try and sell whatever he has with the EU as the

:02:08.:02:10.

change he has promised and the guaranteed Britain's place within

:02:11.:02:17.

the EU and stick with N. Members of his party, quite a lot of them are

:02:18.:02:21.

so implacably opposed to the concept of continuing membership that they

:02:22.:02:26.

are going to force him -- stick within. This is a dangerous game. He

:02:27.:02:30.

can afford to have a civil war within the Conservative Party

:02:31.:02:33.

because there is no opposition at the parliamentary level at this

:02:34.:02:40.

moment but it will cause ructions, unquestionably, within the Tory

:02:41.:02:42.

party because the Eurosceptics will not like this. They will see him as

:02:43.:02:47.

trying to all those that pro- EU case, and they want Brexit very loud

:02:48.:02:56.

and strong. He can't sit on the fence and pretend he doesn't have a

:02:57.:03:01.

view. At this stage, he should. He needs to be seen to give a level

:03:02.:03:06.

head. There will be a dingdong merrily on high in the Cabinet

:03:07.:03:11.

shortly because he is seen to be taking sides. He is taking sides,

:03:12.:03:19.

but we knew... Major is saying it would be absolutely extraordinary

:03:20.:03:22.

for Eurosceptics to speak up. Liam Fox, the Defence Secretary is making

:03:23.:03:27.

his position clear and the likes of Iain Duncan Smith and others, what

:03:28.:03:31.

is going to be critical is the position of Johnson in this. He has

:03:32.:03:37.

a big call to make. Does he want to stay or set himself up as the leader

:03:38.:03:41.

of the Eurosceptic wing, and potentially then given that Cameron

:03:42.:03:47.

will step down before the election, give himself more chance of taking

:03:48.:03:50.

over and wearing the crown which we know he craves long and hard.

:03:51.:03:57.

Looking at the Times, Cameron and Cabinet battle over migrants. What

:03:58.:04:00.

is the main thrust of this deal? The issue is whether the in work

:04:01.:04:08.

benefits system is going to be applied to UK citizens equally as it

:04:09.:04:13.

is to those who are entering the UK, and whether we are going to have

:04:14.:04:18.

what is known as a contributory system, which we have now, or

:04:19.:04:23.

residency test of four years or so. Now if we have a residency test and

:04:24.:04:28.

moved to that system, 300,000 people and their claim will be instantly

:04:29.:04:35.

wiped out. Now, is that fair? More importantly is it sellable? This is

:04:36.:04:40.

the issue. Given all the moves to try and cut the benefits bill, we

:04:41.:04:44.

suddenly have the Tory Eurosceptic Right pushing the case for keeping

:04:45.:04:50.

benefits for 300,000 people. It is quite odd but it is the games people

:04:51.:04:54.

play were now so desperate to strike a position on this and it is all

:04:55.:04:58.

part of the manoeuvrings effectively within one political party at our

:04:59.:05:04.

head of the vote, whenever it is. Maybe June 16, 2016, maybe 2017. No

:05:05.:05:09.

one quite knows when the vote is going to be an much depends on the

:05:10.:05:15.

negotiations between Cameron and the EU. Has come all Ye faithful.

:05:16.:05:22.

Supporters will do what they do. My goodness, she is going to burst into

:05:23.:05:26.

song in a minute! She threatened us with Christmas carols. Wanting to

:05:27.:05:30.

buy a home in 2039, start saving up now. Only 24 years! That is the

:05:31.:05:39.

average. I think it is shocking. One of the things that ties people to

:05:40.:05:43.

their democracies feeling part of it and in Britain it is being able to

:05:44.:05:48.

buy a home and feel you are part of the community on which the economy

:05:49.:05:51.

rest. If you are renting, if you are paying someone else's mortgage that

:05:52.:05:55.

is surely going to affect the way you are going to vote. But we

:05:56.:06:00.

haven't got enough houses and if it is a Shia case of supply and demand

:06:01.:06:06.

we need to build a lot of houses. We have had a tremendous undersupply of

:06:07.:06:10.

housing over the last two or three decades, that why London prices are

:06:11.:06:14.

so ridiculous. Looking at the south-east as a whole, in many parts

:06:15.:06:18.

of the country house prices go hugely through the roof. It is

:06:19.:06:24.

extremely disconcerting. I am very fortunate in terms of I have my own

:06:25.:06:29.

place but can my kids be expected to buy a home in London? Not very

:06:30.:06:33.

easily. It is going to be very tough. It is a crazy situation which

:06:34.:06:37.

gets worse with every passing year rather than better. Hurrah places in

:06:38.:06:42.

the country where house prices are much, much lower but then again so

:06:43.:06:48.

I'll wager is -- there are places. Large part of the East, Scotland,

:06:49.:06:59.

East Midlands... -- so our wages. We can't continue having this pressure

:07:00.:07:06.

on the south-east. No Carol? It is going to be a silent night for lots

:07:07.:07:11.

of people. Off the cuff that is pretty good. Well done. Right, Andy

:07:12.:07:18.

Murray. He is Scottish, or is he British? We don't care, he is BBC

:07:19.:07:22.

Sports Personality of the Year for the second time in three years. Look

:07:23.:07:27.

at what he has achieved. You are the sports journalist... Allegedly. For

:07:28.:07:33.

a lot of the women of the country, you know, he was a surly teenager,

:07:34.:07:39.

and then Kim came along and warmed him up. Then we met Judy who was

:07:40.:07:43.

dancing away and being very supportive and now he's got a female

:07:44.:07:47.

coach who is making him plunge further. It is all about them, is

:07:48.:07:54.

it? There are three queens supporting Andy Murray tonight, not

:07:55.:07:58.

three Kings. And easier result for the BBC, Tyson Fury. It was a

:07:59.:08:07.

competent to victory. Rightly so. There are issues with being Fury. I

:08:08.:08:11.

am against banning him from the shortlist given his achievement but

:08:12.:08:18.

I found it inconceivable he woodwind in many ways and his views are

:08:19.:08:22.

unacceptable. That is my moral, political and philosophical

:08:23.:08:28.

standpoint -- he would win. He comes across as an Old Testament patriarch

:08:29.:08:33.

with his views but there you go. He speaks better with his fists than

:08:34.:08:37.

his reign at times. What he apologised for causing offence. It

:08:38.:08:43.

shows what a big man he is. He is, he is enormous. The best thing about

:08:44.:08:49.

the apology was he acknowledged the backlash. Well done. My goodness me.

:08:50.:08:56.

There will be another dingdong merrily on high. The Metro put rail

:08:57.:09:02.

delay payments on the fast track. Lots of people are either being

:09:03.:09:05.

denied refunds or not bothering to pay them. It is too difficult. If

:09:06.:09:10.

you go through hoops and chaos just to get 40p back no one is going to

:09:11.:09:16.

bother. We are talking about a few quid that adds up over time. 47

:09:17.:09:21.

million passenger journeys were cancelled in the 12 months to

:09:22.:09:25.

March. ?100 million of compensation goes unclaimed because it is so

:09:26.:09:30.

difficult to get anything. You have to go through so many ludicrous

:09:31.:09:33.

things and it needs to be simplified. You need a super

:09:34.:09:36.

complaint process, simplified, is heated up, and find a way to get

:09:37.:09:42.

people's money back. You spend a lot of time wasted on train journeys. I

:09:43.:09:47.

would like you to make a quick comment if you can. Why can't we

:09:48.:09:52.

automatically pay people back through their credit or debit cards?

:09:53.:09:57.

Pay for a ticket, we do the refund. They know which tickets have been

:09:58.:10:01.

bought, they know who is buying them. Give us the money back

:10:02.:10:05.

straightaway. Have you got the Express next? I've got the Daily

:10:06.:10:12.

Mail. They had the same story. This is to make people getting married on

:10:13.:10:16.

the front page of the Express and the Daily Mail. Steve in my ear is

:10:17.:10:27.

having a fit. This is the union of Frank Lampard and Christine. She

:10:28.:10:34.

waited. She was a very beautiful fiancee. Good for her. It is a white

:10:35.:10:41.

Christmas for us all! Look how happy they are. Frank is looking

:10:42.:10:46.

fantastically good with the media over his career, he has always

:10:47.:10:52.

spoken extremely well. I don't know Christine at all. I hope they are

:10:53.:10:56.

very happy together. I have met them a couple of times to say hello, and

:10:57.:11:01.

that was it. Good luck. I hope they have a fantastic life together.

:11:02.:11:05.

Wouldn't we wish that for anyone. Christine Anne Frank, as if we know

:11:06.:11:11.

you, congratulations to you. Thank you for joining us. That's it, the
