Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:14.:00:15.

With me are London Evening Standard's Home

:00:16.:00:20.

Affairs Editor Martin Bentham and Cassell Bryan-Low, UK Editor

:00:21.:00:23.

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

:00:24.:00:29.

Users of the app say they've been raped, robbed and blackmailed

:00:30.:00:33.

The Daily Telegraph says some of the country's highest-paid public

:00:34.:00:40.

sector workers, including civil servants and head

:00:41.:00:41.

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

:00:42.:00:46.

The Times has the story that human organs are being grown for

:00:47.:00:49.

According to the i, 4000 operations could be cancelled in Tuesday's

:00:50.:00:55.

Sean Penn's handshake with the now-captured drugslord El Chapo

:00:56.:01:01.

features on the front of the Independent.

:01:02.:01:03.

The Daily Mirror has the story that 25 former Coalition ministers

:01:04.:01:06.

are now employed in industries they oversaw while in government.

:01:07.:01:11.

The Guardian warns of a funding crisis for the Labour

:01:12.:01:14.

Party, which it says could be set to lose ?6 million under new rules.

:01:15.:01:20.

And, Cameron aims for a summer vote, the Financial Times on the EU

:01:21.:01:23.

We will start with a health story on The Times. Redundant NHS staff

:01:24.:01:43.

rehired in ?92 million farce. You assume that if someone is made

:01:44.:01:47.

redundant it is because their post no longer exists and they are not

:01:48.:01:52.

needed. Yes, this is an eye-catching story, as you say, ?90 million in

:01:53.:01:58.

redundancy being paid to staff who were immediately rehired. This is a

:01:59.:02:05.

particularly bad time forgot us, who are about to go on strike, feeling

:02:06.:02:08.

that they are being shortchanged. A bad time to them. Why is it

:02:09.:02:15.

happening? What happened was that the previous Health Secretary had

:02:16.:02:17.

reorganisation of the NHS, and abolished lots of trusts, and are

:02:18.:02:21.

therefore lots redundant. They then get rehired

:02:22.:02:28.

often by other NHS bodies that have been created in their place. That is

:02:29.:02:32.

basically what this story years, these figures all come from

:02:33.:02:33.

labour's Shadow Health one public sector authority and then

:02:34.:02:56.

rehired by another one on similar terms, the government has actually

:02:57.:03:03.

promised to cap pay-outs for people at ?90,000, which would obviously

:03:04.:03:08.

reduce the amount of money spent in these situations. But if someone is

:03:09.:03:11.

made redundant and rehired, there is nothing you can do. Just looking at

:03:12.:03:18.

the Daily Mail, no end to the witch-hunt, it says. Pounding

:03:19.:03:22.

British troops over their role in the Iraq war. With more than 1000

:03:23.:03:30.

compensation claims. But the paper says that these are compensation

:03:31.:03:34.

claims paid out where there has been no prosecution for conviction. These

:03:35.:03:41.

are civil claims, and there was a judgement in the High Court a while

:03:42.:03:45.

ago that said that the Convention of human rights could apply to actions

:03:46.:03:53.

on human rights when they shot people, and those people who were

:03:54.:03:57.

shot could bring civil claims. You can bring a civil claim even when

:03:58.:04:03.

there is not a prosecution of someone, what the mail is aiming

:04:04.:04:09.

at, and it does seem distasteful to have a lot of sympathy for those

:04:10.:04:13.

involved, given that many instances were a long time ago. It is likely

:04:14.:04:22.

they are opportunistic claims, that is what the defence is suggesting.

:04:23.:04:35.

These being applied to alleged actions being carried out overseas

:04:36.:04:38.

and dragging on for years and years hanging over these soldiers.

:04:39.:04:43.

Multiple investigations being faced sometimes. We have a lot to get

:04:44.:04:53.

through. We are going to go back to the Times and look at the EU story.

:04:54.:05:01.

David Cameron was talking about this on the Andrew Marr Show, and he said

:05:02.:05:06.

that even if he was on the losing side he wouldn't feel compelled to

:05:07.:05:13.

resign. If you remember, he said something similar and head of the

:05:14.:05:18.

Scottish Referendum. Afterwards, he admitted that actually he probably

:05:19.:05:21.

would have had to resign if he had lost out. I understand why he says

:05:22.:05:27.

he isn't sure, he has a choice in saying that, but I don't... It seems

:05:28.:05:34.

to think he can get a move on with this. Yes, and it is enraging his

:05:35.:05:37.

critics within the Conservative Party and outside it. He hasn't yet

:05:38.:05:44.

got a deal, he thinks he can get one next month even, and potentially

:05:45.:05:48.

have a referendum in June. That has always been his objective, to get it

:05:49.:05:55.

out of the way, and although it theoretically if he doesn't get a

:05:56.:06:01.

deal, he would recommend a no vote, but most of his critics think that

:06:02.:06:04.

is a fiction and he is completely committed to staying in, and it

:06:05.:06:07.

almost doesn't matter what the deal is. Today, he has admitted there is

:06:08.:06:14.

no plan for leaving, which is like threatening military action and

:06:15.:06:20.

having all your tanks and planes parked over here, and having no way

:06:21.:06:24.

of actually doing something that you have threatened to do. There is a

:06:25.:06:34.

quote here from the vote leave campaign, saying that he hasn't

:06:35.:06:38.

promised anything. Clearly, this story is going to go on. It will,

:06:39.:06:44.

and we will be following up. The Guardian, a picture story of Sean

:06:45.:06:49.

Penn meeting the then fugitive drug lord kingpin, nobody ever calls

:06:50.:06:56.

anyone kingpin in normal language, but anyway, El Chapo. This interview

:06:57.:07:04.

seems to have led to his recapture. It is a twist worthy of Hollywood.

:07:05.:07:13.

It seems that the drug lord was captured partly because of his

:07:14.:07:16.

silver screen ambitions. It is good to know that drug lords are as

:07:17.:07:23.

everyone else, and the Mexican authorities seem to have been led to

:07:24.:07:27.

him after Sean Penn went to speak to him. The White House is not happy

:07:28.:07:32.

that this happened. Not that it has happened, although I'm sure they are

:07:33.:07:38.

very happy they have got him. To be fair to Sean Penn, the question is

:07:39.:07:41.

not that he did the interview, but maybe about the exact content and

:07:42.:07:51.

methods and how he conduct it. But, as long as you are not paying them

:07:52.:07:54.

and glorifying them, journalists can do this. It casts an interesting

:07:55.:07:59.

light and insight on to this man. He talks about how he had a fleet of

:08:00.:08:04.

submarines, aeroplanes and boats, and he has supplied more drugs than

:08:05.:08:09.

anyone else in the world. He has obtained some interesting material

:08:10.:08:14.

about this man, and inadvertently it has led to his capture as well,

:08:15.:08:18.

which is apparently not as good for the would-be drugs lord. With all

:08:19.:08:25.

that wealth, that was the shirt he chose to buy! We need to cover this

:08:26.:08:34.

fast, Labour fears ?6 million funding crisis. Why is this? This is

:08:35.:08:40.

because they have union members who are already had into paying the

:08:41.:08:47.

levy, and at the moment they are automatically opted in that they

:08:48.:08:49.

will be required to physically decide to opt in. In most cases the

:08:50.:08:55.

Labour Party believes that people will choose to do so, so they will

:08:56.:08:59.

lose our lot of the money, which will leave them with a large funding

:09:00.:09:12.

hole. Look at the Metro. Crimes linked to Tinder soar. Suggestions

:09:13.:09:23.

that people who have met up with people through these applications

:09:24.:09:27.

have suffered some terrible crimes. Yes, it seems there is an increase

:09:28.:09:32.

in rape and attempted murder, the idea of people having met people who

:09:33.:09:37.

have no framework for knowing where they come from, it is a risky

:09:38.:09:46.

position. All these dating websites in the past, this is just the latest

:09:47.:09:51.

version, if you meet someone that you don't know, have no knowledge of

:09:52.:09:56.

their background, then perhaps you should be meeting them in a public

:09:57.:09:59.

place, and not in places where you will potentially be vulnerable. Many

:10:00.:10:04.

people don't take that advice, and that is why they have been given

:10:05.:10:15.

that advice by the people who run these applications. Back to the

:10:16.:10:26.

Daily Mail, we have Cheryl Cole who is likely to face a hefty divorce

:10:27.:10:35.

bill. She didn't have a prenup, and I believe she didn't have one last

:10:36.:10:38.

time around either. She has amassed a lot more wealth this time around,

:10:39.:10:44.

so while I believe her current husband is from a wealthy family,

:10:45.:10:49.

she is clearly the wealthiest. This will keep the tabloids happy and

:10:50.:10:53.

obsessed for quite a long time, I suspect. There will be infinite

:10:54.:11:01.

mileage on this. The divorce lawyers will no doubt be e-mailing their

:11:02.:11:11.

clients, suggesting they have prenuptial agreements. This idea

:11:12.:11:17.

that you are in the throes of this romance, and you think everything

:11:18.:11:21.

will last forever, it is not a very romantic idea, is it, to have such

:11:22.:11:29.

an agreement? I believe when she got married she said she thought it was

:11:30.:11:33.

disgusting. You would have thought someone who is an astute

:11:34.:11:36.

businesswoman in some ways would have been different. She might not

:11:37.:11:48.

like losing ten, but she has still got ten left. No, it wouldn't be

:11:49.:11:54.

nice, but she has worked hard for it. That is it for tonight, thank

:11:55.:11:59.

you for your company. Up next, The Film Review.

:12:00.:12:02.
