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

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are London Evening Standard's Home Affairs Editor,

:00:17.:00:22.

Martin Bentham, and Cassell Bryan-Low, UK Editor

:00:23.:00:25.

The Metro says there's been a huge rise in crimes linked to Tinder -

:00:26.:00:34.

it says users of the app have been raped, robbed and blackmailed

:00:35.:00:37.

The Daily Telegraph says some of the country's

:00:38.:00:42.

highest-paid public sector workers - including civil servants and head

:00:43.:00:45.

teachers - are pushing for big pay rises, to make up for pensions cuts.

:00:46.:00:49.

The Daily Express reports that Eurosceptics

:00:50.:00:50.

are furious over David Cameron's latest push for Britain to stay

:00:51.:00:54.

in tomorrow's strike by junior doctors, according to the I.

:00:55.:01:07.

Sean Penn's handshake with the now-captured

:01:08.:01:09.

drugs kingpin El Chapo features on the front of the Independent.

:01:10.:01:14.

The Daily Mirror has the story that 25 former Coalition

:01:15.:01:18.

ministers are now employed in industries they oversaw

:01:19.:01:21.

The Guardian warns of a funding crisis

:01:22.:01:28.

for the Labour Party, which it says could be set to lose

:01:29.:01:33.

And - Cameron aims for a summer vote -

:01:34.:01:38.

the Financial Times tips this summer for the referendum on British

:01:39.:01:41.

We can begin with the European Union, Will Britt and exit the

:01:42.:01:51.

European Union? Daschle Will Britt and exit -- Will Britt exit. What

:01:52.:02:07.

should the Prime Minister do? The Eurosceptics feel they are being

:02:08.:02:11.

muzzled, told they cannot campaign against openly, and they feel the

:02:12.:02:16.

Prime Minister has said, even though he has not secured this deal, that

:02:17.:02:20.

he is hoping to get, that he has already made his mind up and he does

:02:21.:02:24.

not have a plan B for what happens if we do vote to go out when the

:02:25.:02:28.

referendum comes and that is what this story is all about. The Daily

:02:29.:02:34.

Express is a Eurosceptic paper and they backed Ukip at the last

:02:35.:02:38.

election and they clearly are reflecting that particular

:02:39.:02:41.

perspective in the debate. It is fairly clear, from what people have

:02:42.:02:47.

said, which MPs are for the EU and which are against. Yes, but what we

:02:48.:02:53.

will see, as the collective responsibility is lifted, the divide

:02:54.:02:57.

will go from the top to the bottom of the party, and there has been new

:02:58.:03:02.

estimates about how many people in the Cabinet and how many MPs on each

:03:03.:03:09.

side of the fence and we will see more of that once the deal is

:03:10.:03:13.

reached. Looking at the Financial Times, getting a business

:03:14.:03:19.

perspective. This is the headline, David Cameron aims for some voters

:03:20.:03:24.

and business plays down exit fears. What are the standings that you

:03:25.:03:37.

leaders, talking about how most of them think it will have a negative

:03:38.:03:48.

effect on the British economy, but I don't think it will affect them, but

:03:49.:03:52.

when you talk to companies outside the UK, Japanese and American

:03:53.:03:56.

car-makers, for instance, they feel very definitely, that it would make

:03:57.:03:59.

a difference to their business, if the UK was not in the EU and they

:04:00.:04:04.

see the UK as a launch pad for their businesses that might affect

:04:05.:04:09.

investment in the UK. The subheading here, Prime Minister, than of

:04:10.:04:13.

striking a deal with the EU, but this is a far cry from what he set

:04:14.:04:18.

out to achieve initially. Yes, and he has not struck it, that is the

:04:19.:04:23.

other problem. They feel that the deal that he is going to get, even

:04:24.:04:32.

his highest optimistic deal is actually a very limited agreement

:04:33.:04:40.

which ends the principle of ever closer union, the pie minister says

:04:41.:04:45.

that is a significant change which protects opt out agreements -- the

:04:46.:04:52.

Prime Minister. Critics say this amounts to nothing very much, and

:04:53.:04:54.

the Prime Minister has not struck this deal anyway, and on the issue

:04:55.:05:02.

of benefits and free movement, that has gone out of the window, and

:05:03.:05:07.

regarding benefits, Harter said he will get anything at all, and that

:05:08.:05:11.

is at the centre of what has been his alleged strategy for trying to

:05:12.:05:15.

strike and renegotiate our deal -- hard to say he will get anything.

:05:16.:05:20.

This week, before the Treasury Select Committee, we have the

:05:21.:05:25.

vice-chairman of Barclays investment division, saying there would be

:05:26.:05:30.

disruption if we came out of the EU, but the City of London would still

:05:31.:05:34.

be the leading financial sector in Europe in ten years' time. And there

:05:35.:05:40.

is talk that businesses think themselves, that they would not

:05:41.:05:44.

suffer, and so the idea that this is all a disaster, this will provide

:05:45.:05:47.

succour to those who are campaigning for a no. What would the deal have

:05:48.:05:55.

to look like to convince either camp to change their mind at this stage?

:05:56.:05:59.

There are many people in the Conservative Party, regardless of

:06:00.:06:03.

what David Cameron can secure, they will not change their minds, and the

:06:04.:06:06.

Prime Minister has to get something which will convince 51% of the

:06:07.:06:11.

general public. Another interesting thing, in terms of the timing, we

:06:12.:06:17.

are talking about if he reaches a deal in February, that could mean a

:06:18.:06:21.

vote in the summer, and if you talk to officials in Brussels, they think

:06:22.:06:27.

the timing infirmary is very ambitious and challenging and some

:06:28.:06:31.

would say unrealistic, so maybe it is March rather than fabric but

:06:32.:06:34.

maybe the vote will then be later than summer -- rather than February.

:06:35.:06:41.

He has aways wanted to get it over and done with as quickly as

:06:42.:06:44.

possible, that is what he does like to do, and the critics will say that

:06:45.:06:47.

he is rushing to one without striking a deal, because he wants to

:06:48.:06:58.

get out -- it out of the way. And now to the metro. This is about the

:06:59.:07:03.

Cologne attacks, there seems to be more detail about how the attacks

:07:04.:07:07.

took place against a many women on New Year's Eve. This story talks

:07:08.:07:15.

about the justice minister in Germany, saying that it was an

:07:16.:07:19.

organised crime network who perpetrated the attacks, and this is

:07:20.:07:22.

the latest escalation for Angela Merkel, who is usually various jute,

:07:23.:07:29.

the -- usually very astute, but this has come back to haunt her. It has

:07:30.:07:35.

continued to escalate and now pulling out of Davos is the latest

:07:36.:07:39.

problem. The attacks were co-ordinated using a variety of

:07:40.:07:43.

means. That is what the Justice Ministry are saying, and I suppose

:07:44.:07:47.

if they were on organised crime gang rather than individual people, I

:07:48.:07:53.

suppose they are bad people in the first place, if they come from an

:07:54.:07:56.

organised crime network, so maybe it makes it easier to deal with that

:07:57.:08:02.

kind of person and that kind of criminality, without it being a

:08:03.:08:06.

general pattern of behaviour which is one of the toxic things which has

:08:07.:08:10.

been raised in recent days in Germany, that this reflects general

:08:11.:08:14.

behaviour by migrants in that country, and that would be even more

:08:15.:08:18.

difficult to deal with for Angela Merkel and a very negative thing if

:08:19.:08:22.

that were seen to be the case. The Daily Telegraph. BMA has advanced

:08:23.:08:27.

CORBA -- -- the BMA has advanced

:08:28.:08:46.

Corbynitis, according to Boris Johnson. There have been suggestions

:08:47.:08:55.

that there are links from the BMA to Labour, and that is the line of

:08:56.:08:59.

attack from Boris here. There is politics going on here, as to the

:09:00.:09:04.

rights and wrongs of this strike, and Boris Johnson is getting stuck

:09:05.:09:09.

in, in typical colourful fashion, suggesting it will be left dominated

:09:10.:09:12.

an old-style militant action which should not be happening. He's also

:09:13.:09:18.

making the point that there are certain occupations that you don't

:09:19.:09:24.

expect to see strike. Yes. Doctors is a charged one, and coming back to

:09:25.:09:33.

your point, Boris Johnson is harking back to the 1980s and the hard left

:09:34.:09:40.

troubles of Labour. Much politicking. I'm not sure it is

:09:41.:09:45.

entirely justified to paint them in that light, they feel they have a

:09:46.:09:50.

grievance, whether they are right, personally I think it is

:09:51.:09:55.

unjustifiable to keep suggesting you have got to work additional hours

:09:56.:10:01.

and then they get paid extra for working the evenings and at and from

:10:02.:10:06.

that perspective the change which is recommended by the government is in

:10:07.:10:11.

essence right, but the issue is, compensation for that, and the

:10:12.:10:15.

doctors say also an issue of safety, but I think it is unfair to paint

:10:16.:10:19.

that as a politically driven thing. It is clearly about what the doctors

:10:20.:10:22.

believed to be about pain conditions and what happens to patients. The

:10:23.:10:33.

independent. Sean Penn mates El Chapo, when he meets Joaquin Guzman

:10:34.:10:45.

-- Sean Penn mates. He has escaped high security prisons on two

:10:46.:10:48.

occasions. He dug his way to a shower room. Much controversy over

:10:49.:10:54.

an Sean Penn meeting him. This was the interview that the actor did for

:10:55.:10:57.

Rolling Stone magazine, published over the weekend. Questions being

:10:58.:11:05.

raised for the actor now, what responsibility does he have given

:11:06.:11:11.

that he was meeting with a wanted criminal? Another person involved,

:11:12.:11:16.

Mexican actress who helped facilitate the interview, and given

:11:17.:11:20.

that she is in Mexico, it might be easier for her to be tracked down

:11:21.:11:25.

for the Mexican authorities, it will be hard for the Mexican authorities

:11:26.:11:31.

to interview Sean Penn if the Americans do not want that to

:11:32.:11:34.

happen. The Mexican officials have said him having this meeting but

:11:35.:11:40.

Sean Penn help them catch on. Of course, if they got wind of the fact

:11:41.:11:43.

he was going to do it, they could track his phone and his

:11:44.:11:47.

communications, that is probably how they did it, and then they could not

:11:48.:11:52.

locate this major drug dealer in self -- and then they could locate

:11:53.:11:58.

this major drug dealer himself or stop he is entitled to talk to such

:11:59.:12:03.

a person, but the question is how you do it. The tone of the

:12:04.:12:08.

interview. There was copy approval given to the piece, which is

:12:09.:12:12.

questionable, although that happens with celebrities in this country

:12:13.:12:15.

when they give interviews, they demand that kind of thing. Clearly,

:12:16.:12:19.

you would hope the interview has been conducted in a way which put

:12:20.:12:25.

tough questions to El Chapo, and the idea of having an interview with

:12:26.:12:29.

someone like this is not reprehensible, even if it might be

:12:30.:12:31.

distasteful to give someone like this publicity. It is quite a scoop

:12:32.:12:37.

for Rolling Stone magazine. Finally, we go back to the Financial Times,

:12:38.:12:42.

for a tiny news in brief story at the top of the page. Surge in

:12:43.:12:49.

number, a 35 year high in mortgages, make sure heart sink. -- makes your

:12:50.:12:56.

heart sink. This is depressing, you will be paying your mortgage for

:12:57.:13:00.

ever and ever, a sign of increasing house prices and the difficulty of

:13:01.:13:03.

buying anything for people, especially young people. We are

:13:04.:13:10.

seeing increasing household debt, we need to dealer average after the

:13:11.:13:13.

financial crisis, household debt is increasing again and it comes at a

:13:14.:13:19.

time when rates are said to increase. To keep with the gloomy

:13:20.:13:23.

theme, that does not bode well. What choice to people have if they want

:13:24.:13:27.

to own their own property and these are the only terms they can get one?

:13:28.:13:32.

If you are not buying your first house until you are 40... On a 35

:13:33.:13:39.

year mortgage, that is a long haul. I don't know why we are laughing,

:13:40.:13:42.

May because we already have mortgages. -- maybe because.

:13:43.:13:51.

Thank you Martin Bentham and Cassell Bryan-Low -

:13:52.:13:58.

you'll both be back at 2330 for another look at the stories

:13:59.:14:01.

We have more on the aid agencies trying to reach parts of Syria with

:14:02.:14:07.

food.
