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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


election and they clearly are reflecting that particular


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


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


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


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


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


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


reached. Looking at the Financial Times, getting a business


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


his highest optimistic deal is actually a very limited agreement


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


is talk that businesses think themselves, that they would not


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


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


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


There are many people in the Conservative Party, regardless of


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


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


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


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


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


the timing infirmary is very ambitious and challenging and some


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


organised crime network who perpetrated the attacks, and this is


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


CORBA -- -- the BMA has advanced


Corbynitis, according to Boris Johnson. There have been suggestions


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


unjustifiable to keep suggesting you have got to work additional hours


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Rolling Stone magazine, published over the weekend. Questions being


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


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


Mexican actress who helped facilitate the interview, and given


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


questionable, although that happens with celebrities in this country


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


buying anything for people, especially young people. We are


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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