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

:00:00.:00:12.

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

:00:13.:00:18.

With me are Kate McCann, Senior Political Correspondent

:00:19.:00:20.

at the Telegraph and James Lyons, the Deputy Political Editor

:00:21.:00:22.

Tomorrow's front pages starting with,

:00:23.:00:29.

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

:00:30.:00:38.

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

:00:39.:00:44.

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

:00:45.:00:49.

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

:00:50.:00:56.

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

:00:57.:01:01.

defended historically was with Cecil Rhodes. They are increasingly

:01:02.:01:08.

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

:01:09.:01:11.

another strike. Scientists confident dementia could become a treatable

:01:12.:01:15.

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

:01:16.:01:20.

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

:01:21.:01:22.

coming days even though temperatures are on the way down.

:01:23.:01:28.

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

:01:29.:01:35.

in the Metro, Strachur doctors' theory over.

:01:36.:01:39.

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

:01:40.:01:45.

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

:01:46.:01:50.

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

:01:51.:01:53.

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

:01:54.:01:58.

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

:01:59.:02:00.

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

:02:01.:02:04.

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

:02:05.:02:08.

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

:02:09.:02:12.

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

:02:13.:02:17.

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

:02:18.:02:23.

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

:02:24.:02:29.

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

:02:30.:02:32.

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

:02:33.:02:37.

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

:02:38.:02:43.

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

:02:44.:02:48.

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

:02:49.:02:54.

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

:02:55.:02:58.

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

:02:59.:03:05.

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

:03:06.:03:10.

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

:03:11.:03:15.

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

:03:16.:03:18.

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

:03:19.:03:22.

highly. On also ice, even the junior doctors

:03:23.:03:25.

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

:03:26.:03:29.

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

:03:30.:03:36.

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

:03:37.:03:40.

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

:03:41.:03:44.

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

:03:45.:03:48.

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

:03:49.:03:52.

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

:03:53.:03:59.

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

:04:00.:04:03.

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

:04:04.:04:08.

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

:04:09.:04:17.

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

:04:18.:04:21.

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

:04:22.:04:24.

saying they have already identified the person responsible for the

:04:25.:04:29.

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

:04:30.:04:33.

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

:04:34.:04:37.

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

:04:38.:04:40.

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

:04:41.:04:44.

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

:04:45.:04:47.

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

:04:48.:04:53.

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

:04:54.:04:58.

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

:04:59.:05:04.

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

:05:05.:05:13.

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

:05:14.:05:19.

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

:05:20.:05:23.

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

:05:24.:05:27.

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

:05:28.:05:32.

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

:05:33.:05:35.

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

:05:36.:05:40.

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

:05:41.:05:44.

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

:05:45.:05:47.

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

:05:48.:05:51.

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

:05:52.:05:55.

number of years and many people based economic projections on China

:05:56.:06:00.

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

:06:01.:06:03.

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

:06:04.:06:07.

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

:06:08.:06:10.

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

:06:11.:06:13.

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

:06:14.:06:19.

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

:06:20.:06:22.

are a shot in the arm to the economy.

:06:23.:06:26.

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

:06:27.:06:32.

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

:06:33.:06:36.

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

:06:37.:06:40.

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

:06:41.:06:43.

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

:06:44.:06:46.

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

:06:47.:06:50.

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

:06:51.:06:55.

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

:06:56.:06:59.

people who have unsavoury views and people whose views board on

:07:00.:07:02.

extremism are being barred from universities and not allowed to

:07:03.:07:05.

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

:07:06.:07:11.

where debates take place and even people whose views you find

:07:12.:07:13.

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

:07:14.:07:18.

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

:07:19.:07:23.

and prejudices influence what other traditions that universities hold

:07:24.:07:27.

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

:07:28.:07:34.

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

:07:35.:07:38.

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

:07:39.:07:44.

provide a space where people can debate and discuss.

:07:45.:07:51.

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

:07:52.:07:54.

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

:07:55.:07:57.

said? Obviously this comes in the wake of

:07:58.:08:02.

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

:08:03.:08:06.

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

:08:07.:08:15.

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

:08:16.:08:23.

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

:08:24.:08:26.

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

:08:27.:08:30.

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

:08:31.:08:34.

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

:08:35.:08:37.

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

:08:38.:08:42.

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

:08:43.:08:45.

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

:08:46.:08:49.

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

:08:50.:08:52.

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

:08:53.:08:56.

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

:08:57.:09:00.

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

:09:01.:09:06.

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

:09:07.:09:09.

around. Just to remind those who might not

:09:10.:09:12.

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

:09:13.:09:16.

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

:09:17.:09:20.

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

:09:21.:09:23.

Mick Jagger. I thought she had been married

:09:24.:09:26.

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

:09:27.:09:30.

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

:09:31.:09:31.

story and if Hello and welcome to Sportsday.
