take a look at how the English cricketers are doing ahead of the

:00:00.:00:00.

Test series starting on Boxing Day in South Africa.

:00:00.:00:16.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be

:00:17.:00:17.

With me are the former trade minister Lord Digby Jones and

:00:18.:00:32.

broadcaster to. -- Henry Bonsu. And we start with the Financial Times.

:00:33.:00:38.

Apple launching a fight back over the surveillance bill. And

:00:39.:00:44.

temperatures will reach 17 degrees in tomorrow's winter solstice, as

:00:45.:00:52.

warm as the summer solstice in June. And hospitals making up to ?3.7

:00:53.:00:55.

million each per year on car park charges for patients. The mirror has

:00:56.:01:02.

that story as well and also an interview with the late Cilla Black

:01:03.:01:05.

in the sun. And British families in the sun. And British families

:01:06.:01:11.

fuel fears of a new financial crash according to the Independent. And

:01:12.:01:17.

the decision to ban Sepp Blatter and the shell Platini for eight years

:01:18.:01:20.

leading the front page on the Guardian. The Daily Mail, a move to

:01:21.:01:32.

let ministers campaign to leave the EU. Well we start with the Fifa

:01:33.:01:37.

story. One point two million or whatever it was, a gentleman 's

:01:38.:01:40.

agreement, what is the problem? Well allow me a bit of French! It is

:01:41.:02:04.

not to do with disloyalty, but an unauthorised payment. Neither man

:02:05.:02:10.

can explain it away sufficiently to the satisfaction of the ethics

:02:11.:02:18.

committee. It goes back to a period between 1990 and 2002 when Michel

:02:19.:02:25.

Platini acted as special adviser to Sepp Blatter during the period of

:02:26.:02:31.

time. Because they cannot explain it away and do not have any cogent

:02:32.:02:32.

reason for this money, that is why reason for this money, that is

:02:33.:02:39.

they have been handed a red card. They have not found guilty of

:02:40.:02:44.

corruption, extraordinary given everything else swirling around. It

:02:45.:02:55.

it well, a few weeks before the it well, a few weeks before the

:02:56.:03:01.

presidential election in which time Sepp Blatter faced a challenge from

:03:02.:03:07.

the Qatari who was himself ultimately ran for bribery claims,

:03:08.:03:11.

this guy suddenly does not stand against Sepp Blatter and a few years

:03:12.:03:19.

with classic English understatement, with classic English understatement,

:03:20.:03:31.

in addition to alleged corruption, which carried a potential lifetime

:03:32.:03:34.

ban, the charges were based on four other potential riches,

:03:35.:03:40.

mismanagement, conflict of interest, false accounting and noncooperation

:03:41.:03:42.

with the ethics committee. I would call that bang to rights! They are

:03:43.:03:52.

appealing. Appealing incentives. He looks a bit dishevelled, Sepp

:03:53.:03:57.

Blatter, diminished by the whole thing. He does not want his legacy

:03:58.:04:04.

to be this. He sees himself as a man who globalised football and to go

:04:05.:04:07.

from the hands of Europe and spread it around the world. There is

:04:08.:04:12.

something to be said for that. We have seen it in Latin America, in

:04:13.:04:18.

Russia, he feels he has used football as a tool for development

:04:19.:04:23.

for the global good and he does not want that to be his legacy. It would

:04:24.:04:31.

have been such a fabulous legacy, that is the shame. He should've seen

:04:32.:04:37.

the writing on the wall and step down a few years ago. The Daily

:04:38.:04:44.

Express. My mother was in Warwick Hospital for five days about a year

:04:45.:04:52.

ago. I was amazed at how much money you have defined just to park your

:04:53.:04:57.

car. I asked the receptionist one-day and said all well and good

:04:58.:05:04.

for people like me but does this happen to someone in hospital for 28

:05:05.:05:09.

days and family maybe doing a vigil at the bedside. Oh, yes. I said it

:05:10.:05:16.

is inherently wrong and she said, if you have seen what happened when we

:05:17.:05:19.

did not charge, people used to park their cars and walk to work. They

:05:20.:05:24.

used it as a free car park to do stuff nothing to do with the

:05:25.:05:31.

hospital. I asked why not have some kind of card when someone registers

:05:32.:05:35.

in the hospital, they put a band on the wrist, they create a history.

:05:36.:05:41.

Why not create a bad code that gives you free parking. -- bar code. This

:05:42.:05:48.

is on the front page of a number of papers. Up to 3.7 million a year

:05:49.:05:56.

each by ripping off patients, visitors and staff with car park

:05:57.:06:03.

charges. Making a fortune. The patient does not get charged car

:06:04.:06:09.

parking when they're in bed, to make that clear, it is outpatient visits.

:06:10.:06:16.

And visitors and staff. There has got to be a better way. One of the

:06:17.:06:26.

problems, when you allow market forces to run things, when you

:06:27.:06:31.

outsource, morality goes out the window. Let's have a proper

:06:32.:06:39.

conversation about outsourcing. It is morally wrong to charge people.

:06:40.:06:48.

Nothing to do with capitalism. You will be talking about

:06:49.:06:56.

nationalisation in a minute! This is wrong. Nothing to do with capitalism

:06:57.:07:04.

or socialism. When you allow these quote, profit hungry private firms

:07:05.:07:11.

to run these car parks, beastly profiteering companies, then you see

:07:12.:07:19.

people who have got to use the car parks... A private company will only

:07:20.:07:24.

do what the person paying them tells them to do. They are morally

:07:25.:07:31.

absolved? No, you have the NHS telling a private company that

:07:32.:07:37.

not blame the private company, in not blame the private company, in

:07:38.:07:42.

legal terms all they are doing is fulfilling their contract. It is

:07:43.:07:48.

about the culture that has been encouraged. You have to dig deeper.

:07:49.:08:03.

We have got to move on. The Daily Mail. That ministers speak out on

:08:04.:08:09.

Europe, the Prime Minister is told. David Cameron must that Cabinet

:08:10.:08:13.

colleagues speak freely on Europe. This is Lord Lawson. John Major

:08:14.:08:24.

yesterday morning said that talking about Cabinet responsibility, until

:08:25.:08:28.

the consolidated position brought back by the Prime Minister has been

:08:29.:08:34.

explained. As we know exactly what we are going to be voting on. Sounds

:08:35.:08:41.

reasonable. But we need to declare freedom from now, Cabinet ministers

:08:42.:08:44.

allowed to go their own way even though normally we have rules of

:08:45.:08:49.

Cabinet responsibility. He seems to be saying this is so important, they

:08:50.:08:57.

should be allowed to speak out. Regardless of your views on Europe,

:08:58.:09:01.

if you're where in the Cabinet now, would you expect to be able to come

:09:02.:09:06.

out at this stage in negotiations, and say you know what, I think we

:09:07.:09:10.

should stay in or I think we should pull out. I believe they should have

:09:11.:09:19.

a free vote. I am worried that this EU referendum vote, the biggest

:09:20.:09:26.

thing for 50 years, will be trivialised to an issue of

:09:27.:09:33.

immigration. And also will be trivialised party politically. What

:09:34.:09:38.

we should be doing is looking at reforming Europe for Europe, not for

:09:39.:09:44.

the UK. We should get a young man in Greece, to work. The way to do this

:09:45.:09:53.

is education. We subsidise French farmers with our taxes more than

:09:54.:09:55.

schools across southern Europe. Why schools across southern Europe. Why

:09:56.:10:04.

not mention that, reform should not be trivialised down to a Tory party

:10:05.:10:15.

that. Until he says to the country, here is the question, I think it

:10:16.:10:20.

should be a free vote. Until that point, your on the team. Just a

:10:21.:10:28.

couple of minutes left. The Daily Telegraph. Steve Harvey is the man

:10:29.:10:41.

who gave up the wrong name when trying to reveal the one crucial

:10:42.:10:49.

point of his contract. Miss universe. Building up to a

:10:50.:10:56.

crescendo. But he got the wrong country. He was given a card, first

:10:57.:11:02.

and second runner-up and then winner. The way it was laid out on

:11:03.:11:09.

the card confused him. He was confused and named Columbia as the

:11:10.:11:15.

winner when she was first runner-up. The response has been savage. They

:11:16.:11:24.

took the crown off the woman and put it on someone else! She was Miss

:11:25.:11:28.

universe for three minutes. They should never have privatised Miss

:11:29.:11:34.

universe! They should have left it nationalised! Gentleman, come on!

:11:35.:11:51.

Limbering up for the second round! I would not like to be Tyson Fury!

:11:52.:11:59.

Gentleman, you are back in an hour and we will see you then. Now time

:12:00.:12:03.

for the sports

:12:04.:12:04.
