In Sportsday, all the reaction from the FA Cup third round opener as
Exeter went all out for a upset, taking the lead against the seven
time winners Liverpool. The Premier League side of any midst of an
injury crisis and only two first-team regular started. And a
light of Rugby Union scorers as well as the latest from the parts, that
is all in Sportsday, after the papers... -- the darts.
Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be
With me are Caroline Frost, the Entertainment Editor
of the Huffington Post UK, and David Williamson,
the Political Editor of Media Wales and the Western Mail.
Many of the front pages are already in.
The Telegraph leads on what it calls the migrant backlash now afflicting
Europe following the sexual assaults in Germany on New Year's Eve.
The Guardian's top story is the sacking of the Cologne police
chief for the way officers dealt with those attacks.
The Independent says on its front page that British troops could face
prosecution in connection with as many as 55 deaths
The Daily Mail has a different headline on the same story -
the papers claims 280 British troops are being hounded in
The Times has an interview with former Shadow minister
Michael Dugher, who claims Ken Livingstone is pulling
the strings of the Labour leadership.
The Financial Times leads on plunging global stock markets,
which it says have suffered their worst start to the year in decades.
The Sun carries the story of a British mother who says she's
suing New York State police for ?30 million because they seized her baby
The version from the Daily Mail of the story, here as soldiers are sent
legal threats, 280 troops pounded in an Iraq war witchhunt. The Daily
Mail leaving us in no doubt about how they feel about this. This is
interesting, the same story on the Daily Mail and the independent but
very different language. The Daily Mail very much a personal attack on
his veteran soldiers, emphasising veteran, and length of service, and
they are getting letters through the door, many years after some have
come home, tired and adjusting to life and suddenly getting letters
being delivered on the doorstep by taxpayer funded detectives. It all
sounds like a knock on the door in the middle of the night. About these
historic allegations. The independent headline is rather
different, UK troops face prosecution over 55 Iraq deaths.
Claims referred to the military equivalent of the Crown Prosecution
Service. It says dozens of soldiers could be affected. If there has been
instances of abuse, they have to be investigated? One of the most
striking things about the war in Iraq was this was a war in which
things like the scandals became a major strategic disaster, which the
West is still paying for and there is this realisation that if you want
to be seen as a pantheon of human rights, you need to ensure that you
are not actually perpetrating human rights abuses. It also highlights
how we living in a world where we have a professional army that we are
expecting people to be accountable every single second and rightly so
and it is as if the professional soldier is not just a warrior who
are sent into places that people are terrified to go to, they actually
have to be able to not use violence in situations where, how anyone can
process this is extraordinary. We ask people to do extraordinary
things but in the theatre of war acceptable and the British Army
argues they have a very clear chain of command to stop abuses like this?
And we know that this in the past has been proven to be abused and
certainly the troops that went over, to serve
their country and sacrificed many lives, ruined families, that needs
to be put in lives, ruined families, that needs
say, there are these new, almost revised levels, of
accountable as the years gone by because Iraq has such a tortured
legacy and pounce on anything. The Financial
Times, markets suffer the worst start to the year in decades, China
shock waves spooking investors, the week long losses equalling more than
$3.3 trillion! I cannot even come to that makes for some depressing
reading for January. Apparently, the worst start to a year for two
decades and one of the many striking things in the last paragraph is that
apparently analysts think this is like a three act play that started
in 2007, the financial crisis in America and the Eurozone in 2010 and
this is the last one, but it is not just isolated there because if you
have emerging economies which we desperately hope will continue to
buy our services and make our goods cheaply, if they implode, we will
all be in a very strange lifeboat. It was not long ago that what
happened in China did not have relevance to us? Absolutely, we
would worry about America and very much about Europe and possibly South
America occasionally. Now, everybody, I say everybody but you
all eating, Christmas pudding blissfully agreed that this is going
on and were told today on the front pages that suddenly all these
trillions have been not of the value of the planet and my question is,
and what might those my mortgage go up? Until that happens, it all seems
rather abstract. George Osborne says it might be sooner rather than later
with the interest rates but that might be a readjustment depending on
what else happens in the world. Staying with the Financial Times,
inside pages, is that right? Be Cologne police chief quits? On the
bottom. After the sexual assaults and robberies against women on a
massive scale, it seems, in Cologne on New Year's Eve, it seemed
inevitable to onlookers that the police chief would resign but what
ramifications will be for Angela Merkel? This is worst nightmare, she
was the best post in Europe and they have proven to be among some of her
worst guests and at best, it is a pretty up gross abuse of hospitality
and she has staked a political currency on opening the doors of
Germany and being seen to be maternal, as she has been described,
and now, this absolute headache of these people attacking people and it
has been proven that a lot of them were asylum seekers so he had to go.
But at what point, I do not see myself Angela Merkel being toppled
but the pressure on her is to come up again with a solution.
Interesting to see how this incident has been jumped upon by everybody
who wants to put up the fortress walls. The Prime Minister of
Slovakia said the dream of multicultural Europe is dead. Which
seems like an exaggeration based on one incident but within Germany
itself you have this huge argument starting but it is interesting that
even the people concerned within the German politics, too many people
have come in. They propose to limit this and it is still so much more
than what the UK is taking in. Lots of big questions. One of your
papers, the Western mail, and army apologises as the inquest buys a
culture of unofficial punishment led to the Welsh soldiers... This is
heartbreaking, so money people in Wales, a higher proportion of people
joining the army per capita and for many people it does offer a
fantastic career but when you think of the parents of this young man?
--?. You are aware that your son or daughter is signing up for a higher
level of danger but you do not expect that to be in the training
process and it is this culture of unofficial punishment, which is
quite hell-raising, that this is going on comparatively recently.
Every story like this, I think of the US movies of the 1980s, where we
are told that you cannot handle the truth, and the idea that this is
happening on our own doorstep today, with that lack of accountability,
there is so much military news today, but I'm sure there are so
many soldiers reading the stories saying, none understand what goes on
and what we are required to do and how. And the few ugly lights are
being let on these events. Tonight, outside broadcasting house, there
was a big issue seller who was in Kandahar, he was a veteran, and this
question of afterwards, the care of veterans, which thankfully has been
cranked up the agenda but it has taken so long. And a lot of
charities doing a lot of that work for people when they have two
readjust. The Telegraph... A story that has broken the safety, the
doctors strike could tip the hospitals over the edge, the
conciliation service said that the talks were continuing but nothing
sufficient had been done to stop junior doctors striking on Tuesday.
What is the expectation according to this article? I just think that as a
say, it could tip hospitals over the edge, we have this sword dangling
overdoes for the past 18 months, it feels like, with trainee doctors
saying that they need more money and it will be putting pressure on
Accident and Emergency resources, delayed operations and all that, and
this is just another element and I think, all I can see on Facebook as
people supporting doctors because they feel they are getting, not the
help they need. There is that fear, if you go into hospital, you want to
Doctor to have had a good night's sleep. There is enormous sympathy
but also it is coming at a time just as the winter flu season is like to
be kicking in, and apparently... Cynical? There has been a doubling
of intensive care admissions in the past week. If you are going to do
something, this is one of the worst times to do it. It is also
interesting but in a way, throughout this government and the last one,
his big confrontations between ministers and doctors and I wonder
if in a way the NHS is one of the last great nationalised industries
in that sense, you have ministers directly involved in pay
negotiations. It used to be: steel. Here we are, heading for this
titanic stand-off. And it is in England. It will be interesting to
see what does happen on Tuesday because it is the junior doctors,
who else will go out in support? We're not sure. The Daily Mirror.
Something different. How to skip the Lotto, a genius has come up with a
farmer to help win tomorrow night 's draw. Doctor John Haig, says random,
less popular, higher numbers are the key and they should add up to 200.
Not giving anything else away? Apparently, do not choose the
previous weeks numbers. That is another cap. That would make quite a
lot of sense. Do not pick the numbers from last week! They are
just as likely to be the same as any other number? It is random! Picked
the same numbers. Why is he sharing this information? YFC not sorting
himself out? He is obviously very benevolent! -- why is he. This is
just a decoder, he knows other numbers! If we pick the same
numbers, and they did come up, we would be sharing about 50p each!
Apparently this is one of the numbers, so many people choose their
birthday or a date and that limit set between one and 31. Did you buy
a ticket? No. I am one of those people who was told I am all like to
be hit by a meteor than winning the lottery and when you see these
staggering life changing sums of money and people trying to submit an
online thing and it came up and are online and the application failed. I
would rather not have the money then almost have that money! You would
never do the lottery again! Very little point! Bad is it for the
newspapers for this hour. We will be back again at 11:30pm for another
look at the front pages. Coming up next, Sportsday.
