All of that, and news on Chris Froome and Andy Murray


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


With me are Kate McCann, Senior Political Correspondent


at the Telegraph and James Lyons, the Deputy Political Editor


Tomorrow's front pages starting with,


Welcome to both of you. In case you have just joined us, we will look at


some of the front pages. The oil industry is facing the worst


service bosses are accused of trying service bosses are accused of trying


to trick junior doctors to return to work by declaring emergency during


today's strike. Lord Patten, Oxford University's Chancellor, has


defended historically was with Cecil Rhodes. They are increasingly


optimistic they can end the dispute and make a deal before there is


another strike. Scientists confident dementia could become a treatable


condition within a decade. The Times reports on a study that found that


nearly half of Britain's pensioners will ration their energy use in the


coming days even though temperatures are on the way down.


Let's begin. Kate, perhaps you could start us off, the doctors' strike,


in the Metro, Strachur doctors' theory over.


in the Metro, Strachur doctors' theory what is this about? Doctors


at Sandwell Hospital sent an e-mail to striking junior doctors to ask


them to come back into work citing a level for incident because they


didn't have enough staff to manage what was going on at the hospital.


One of the junior doctors said they spotted the message was dated Monday


and they always expected the hospital would be busy that day and


therefore it wasn't an emergency so doctors decided not to go back to


work. Although there was a figure from the BMA today that said 38% of


junior doctors work in work today regardless because many of them were


manning emergency department posts. Perhaps not as many as expected did


walk out in the end. It is is Mola side issue in the overall dispute.


What is interesting here is it shows the depth of feeling on both sides


and bitterness that has been created around this dispute. Clearly there


is a great deal of mistrust on the part of junior doctors and equally,


if you speak to people in the Government they certainly feel they


have been entirely reasonable. So, it's interesting to see that the


Guardian are saying they think... Let's move the Guardian. They say


there could be a resolution in view after this. As Kate said before we


came on, once you have been on strike, this is the first doctors'


strike since 1975, and once you have done it once it is much easier to do


it again. The Guardian says hopes of a deal to end the deadlock rise as


doctors go back to work. I'm not sure anybody else puts it that


highly. On also ice, even the junior doctors


that were interviewed on strike today says they don't want to be on


strike, the natural instinct is not to be on the picket line, it is to


be in the hospital. It is notable in the Guardian article by David


Dobson, who Jeremy Hunt brought in as chief negotiator, is said to be


well respected in the NHS, so that he will have the pact they have that


had so far. It's taken a long time to get this far, they've argued


about it for the last couple of years, so it's the last minute.


Let's move on, Turkey in the Guardian. Many papers have the


story, the Guardian amongst many, about the bomb blast in Turkey. This


is a worrying development, is it not? Ten people killed, most of them


German tourists, a number of people killed in the attack in Turkey. I


think what is worth noting about this is the Turkish authorities are


saying they have already identified the person responsible for the


attack, it was a Syrian man, a suicide bomber and they seem to know


who he was. That is very quick for them to identify who was


responsible. I think there are questions that need to be asked


whether he was on a watchlist, was he simply already marked out as


perhaps a bit of that needed to be watched more closely, and if that's


the case, how was it about to get this far? It is complicated in


Turkey's case because the Turkish government is bearing down heavily


on the Kurds, who are actually fighting. It is a reminder that


Turkey is in the front line and cool between Europe and what is going on


in Syria. Indeed. -- caught between. Now to the Financial Times. The


price of oil is going down sharply and dark warnings about what that


might mean. This is terrible news if you are one of the 4000 people


facing losing their job, but good news for motorists. You've got to


wonder where this is going to end. If prices keep falling like this we


will end up getting a free gallon of petrol with every four glasses. It


is a serious situation, not just for the oil industry but this will


spread across all sectors. It already has, commodity prices across


the board have been dropping for some time, China had a big impact on


that, it stopped building and developing the weight has done for a


number of years and many people based economic projections on China


's growth -- in the way it has done. There are articles suggesting a


property dip could be about to hit this country and it is something to


watch, not just the oil industry. I saw another story at the weekend


that the could be heading the same way as Japan, years and years of


stagnant growth and all the things that come with that. Although you


have to say many economists would tell you that lower petrol prices


are a shot in the arm to the economy.


OK! Let's go to the Telegraph, it is your newspaper, Kate, take as


through this quickly. Cecil Rhodes, his statue, some people want to take


it down. And now incomes Lord Patten. This is interesting, not


just because of the Cecil Rhodes debate that has gone on for a number


of years and there has been this to squash and about statues at


universities, not just in this country. But it's about what


universities should be doing when it comes to freedom of speech and


expression. This comes back to the debate about no platforming and


people who have unsavoury views and people whose views board on


extremism are being barred from universities and not allowed to


speak. Universities have a strong and long tradition of being a place


where debates take place and even people whose views you find


abhorrent would get a hearing. That is something to hold onto and that


is what Lord Patten is saying, we should not let contemporary views


and prejudices influence what other traditions that universities hold


dear. I think there is a feeling abroad that the whole kind of


intolerant feeling has gone too far. My own paper had a story recently


about the free-speech groups that are popping up at universities, to


provide a space where people can debate and discuss.


Indeed. OK, let's stick with the Telegraph and another story, bail


system raises jihadi risk, according to the Prime Minister. What has he


said? Obviously this comes in the wake of


the chap who skipped police Bale and became the new Jihadi John,


Siddhartha Dhar, the bouncy Castle salesman if you read the newspapers.


-- police bail. Police bail system is not tough enough, according to


some. He said very much, after the police themselves have said, they


will tighten up in this area. It is a very lively issue and lots


of people feel strongly about it. It is all very well to say that but it


will need lots of laws redrafting. That is true but the figure at the


bottom of the article should be a wake-up call. There are 100


terrorism suspects on police bail currently. I wonder how many of


those had to give up their passports so far and how many still have them.


In a situation like this, when it is a terrorism issue and a national


security issue there are things that can be done quite quickly.


OK, we must come to the photograph on the front of the daily Telegraph,


this story is everywhere today. James, it is your proprietor.


It is a heart-warming tale. Incurable romantic and a fourth time


around. Just to remind those who might not


know, he's marrying? Jerry Hall, but I have not got the


invite yet but I look forward to it. Lots of people will say can my


goodness, he's been married four Times, but she was not married to


Mick Jagger. I thought she had been married


before but maybe not, but I think it is nice. I don't think there should


be a limit on the number of times you can be married, it is a nice


story and if Hello and welcome to Sportsday.
