out of a tricky spot in Johannesburg. A crime spot in the

:00:00.:00:00.

European Rugby Cup the Scot, all that in 15 minutes after the papers.

:00:00.:00:17.

Welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us.

:00:18.:00:24.

Whether this is the senior features editor of the Financial Times and

:00:25.:00:26.

the Westminster correspondence for the Sunday Post. Front pages, the

:00:27.:00:33.

Times features a picture of British astronaut Tim Peake on his first

:00:34.:00:39.

spacewalk. A story on red light districts to be set for sex workers

:00:40.:00:45.

in cities including and Glasgow. The Daily Mail claims hundreds of

:00:46.:00:48.

thousands of tonnes of recycling is just being burdened or dumped in

:00:49.:00:53.

landfills. The Independent has an exclusive about deep cutbacks where

:00:54.:00:58.

it is claimed there was a culture of bullying and sexual assault. The

:00:59.:01:01.

daily Mirror bleeds that an interview with the Coronation Street

:01:02.:01:07.

star William Roache who talked about the final moments he shared with his

:01:08.:01:12.

co-star shortly before her death. The Telegraph has a story about

:01:13.:01:16.

Easter holidays with the Archbishop of Canterbury claiming they should

:01:17.:01:19.

fall on the same week every year. He says Anglican leaders will join

:01:20.:01:22.

discussions with other church leaders about a move to a fixed

:01:23.:01:26.

date. Let's begin and showing absolutely

:01:27.:01:30.

no partiality, we begin with the Financial Times. Your turn next I'm!

:01:31.:01:40.

George Osborne move aimed at swing voters. Pensions when in the papers

:01:41.:01:44.

last night as well. Who was winning and losing? This time it is the

:01:45.:01:52.

higher earners. It seems to be quite an audacious move by George Osborne

:01:53.:01:57.

and it is an overhaul towards law are earners in the sense that he is

:01:58.:02:04.

proposing a flat rate of tax relief on pensions, so the system at the

:02:05.:02:12.

moment is that it is geared to your income, so you get the same rate of

:02:13.:02:25.

pension relief as you do pay income tax, so higher earners get higher

:02:26.:02:30.

tax relief and this proposal will level it down,, and it says there is

:02:31.:02:40.

a proposal for 25%, or 33%, for everybody, which will favour the

:02:41.:02:48.

lower earners. This is analysed as a political move and an attempt to

:02:49.:02:55.

please lower income voters to move into that. I wonder how many people

:02:56.:02:58.

will be convinced because the Conservatives have been accused of

:02:59.:03:05.

not looking after lower earners. The Tories traditionally have looked

:03:06.:03:09.

after pensioners and then all the pensioners vote and that is why they

:03:10.:03:13.

keep winning elections, and they keep promising to look after

:03:14.:03:16.

pensioners saw in that sense it is quite interesting that they are now

:03:17.:03:20.

beginning to look at pensions as an aviator change things, but the key

:03:21.:03:24.

aspect is it will save George Osborne billions of pounds a year

:03:25.:03:27.

and that is why they are looking at pensions. He is looking to save

:03:28.:03:33.

money wherever they can and it allows him to present himself, as a

:03:34.:03:37.

sort of champion of the middle ground, this is his strategy to

:03:38.:03:42.

reach out for the middle ground that has been abandoned by the Labour

:03:43.:03:49.

Party. Red light zone is set for UK cities. London, Glasgow in

:03:50.:03:54.

particular have asked for special zones for sex workers and it seems

:03:55.:03:59.

to have had some success, this idea, this scheme, being trialled in

:04:00.:04:06.

Leeds. It is a very interesting issue and I don't think the story

:04:07.:04:10.

necessarily supports the headline which says it is set for UK cities

:04:11.:04:14.

when it is campaign is asking for red light zones, but according to

:04:15.:04:20.

this, there has been a pilot project in Leeds and sex workers are more

:04:21.:04:24.

willing to report crimes, which is essentially the point of the thing.

:04:25.:04:28.

There are a lot of crimes carried out against sex workers and we know

:04:29.:04:31.

that much and they are usually unwilling to report that, how it

:04:32.:04:40.

will affect them, so that sounds positive. Whether it will actually

:04:41.:04:46.

happen, I am not sure there's a huge amount of evidence that it is. The

:04:47.:04:51.

Home Office see essentially it is up to individual police forces. The

:04:52.:04:56.

argument often from people who don't want to see any kind of prostitution

:04:57.:05:02.

enabled, is that in doing this, are re-legitimising prostitution? Are we

:05:03.:05:08.

saying that we live in a society where we are happy to have women

:05:09.:05:10.

treated as sexual objects? I don't think that's the case. I think that

:05:11.:05:19.

this is saying that women who work in prostitution deserve protection

:05:20.:05:24.

under the law. And that actually, the wider community and the

:05:25.:05:31.

taxpaying community will benefit all so, because they will occupy less

:05:32.:05:37.

police time. They can work safely, crime goes down. You could see the

:05:38.:05:41.

social benefits were increased significantly. So I think that the

:05:42.:05:51.

idea of some kind of future where prostitution no longer exists is not

:05:52.:05:56.

a realistic possibility, and in the meantime, let's try and make the

:05:57.:06:00.

streets safer for the women who do this, and that is why it is a good

:06:01.:06:04.

splash because it is an issue you can argue about, those two sites,

:06:05.:06:08.

till the cows come home. We will move on. The Daily Mail, tonnes of

:06:09.:06:15.

recycling burned or buried, what is going wrong? What is going wrong is

:06:16.:06:24.

that the reality is that everybody puts all the recycling in together,

:06:25.:06:31.

because you cannot separate out every tiny piece, except that

:06:32.:06:34.

unfortunately the Daily Mail is a rather enjoying reporting the fact

:06:35.:06:40.

that unless we meticulously do this, the whole thing is a waste of time

:06:41.:06:44.

and everything has to go on to landfill so why do we bother really,

:06:45.:06:51.

is the underlying message. But it is not everything, that is the only

:06:52.:06:56.

thing. It is actually the poorest record, Manchester City Council,

:06:57.:07:00.

turning away 18 bins for every 100 that are recycled. So 82, that was

:07:01.:07:07.

quick! 82 are being recycled which is a good thing, which sounds quite

:07:08.:07:13.

a good rates to me. The key figure is that the amount of recycling bins

:07:14.:07:18.

or burned has doubled in the last few years. We don't know if that is

:07:19.:07:25.

just because more is being recycled. There is a very good quote from the

:07:26.:07:29.

environment spokesman called Peter box who sounds as if he is going to

:07:30.:07:36.

come down extremely heavily on anyone who actually mixes things up.

:07:37.:07:43.

It is the only thing they understand. We need effective

:07:44.:07:48.

proportionate powers to take actions against households or businesses who

:07:49.:07:52.

persistently and wilfully do this. Wilful bad recycling! When we were

:07:53.:08:01.

growing up, nothing was recycled. Just in the last few years it has

:08:02.:08:04.

increased a lot and is going up exponentially. Just be careful with

:08:05.:08:10.

the tins of beans. We could do a lot. The Independent, Jeremy Corbyn

:08:11.:08:17.

calls for ratio rules to end pay and equality. Recycling things from the

:08:18.:08:27.

1970s. It doesn't mean it's a bad idea but it means he will never get

:08:28.:08:32.

elected. He wants to ban senior executives from having vastly higher

:08:33.:08:36.

wages than genuine employees. It is a trendy thing at the moment to work

:08:37.:08:41.

out the ratio between the top person at the bottom person. What is plenty

:08:42.:08:46.

about equality? The idea of the ratio is a trendy thing. I am not

:08:47.:08:50.

saying it is a bad thing, just trendy, however the minute you start

:08:51.:08:56.

saying I will start fiddling around with Private business, business will

:08:57.:09:02.

say we're not interested in you and all the newspapers and Tory

:09:03.:09:04.

politicians will suggest the man is out of touch and a of bad things

:09:05.:09:10.

will fall upon his head. Is that really true? I thought some

:09:11.:09:16.

countries, a certain proportion, the most junior employee had two early

:09:17.:09:19.

certain proportion of what the person at the top there and? I think

:09:20.:09:26.

it's actually maybe not as nuts as you make it sound and it is also

:09:27.:09:30.

playing into the idea, which I think has gained traction, which is that

:09:31.:09:38.

there is too much any quality in many companies, particularly in the

:09:39.:09:44.

City of London. Between what the highest earners receive and the

:09:45.:09:52.

bottom, the gap is too big and damagingly so. But also, Jeremy

:09:53.:09:57.

Corbyn it is very easy to laugh, and often we do, we have to tell him

:09:58.:10:06.

off, but his Labour Party membership is going up massively according to

:10:07.:10:14.

Guardian research. Let's look at the picture in the Times of Tim Peake on

:10:15.:10:18.

his first spacewalk. They had to call it a day after five hours

:10:19.:10:23.

because water seeped into his colleague's helmet. Having thrown

:10:24.:10:31.

myself out of our plane, I can't imagine what it would be like to

:10:32.:10:34.

open a hatch and allow yourself to leave the International Space

:10:35.:10:41.

Station. Watching him float, it looks as though they are tethered

:10:42.:10:45.

very likely outside and he is upside down. Apparently they have time to

:10:46.:10:53.

mentally adjust and go, I am floating in space! I feel slightly

:10:54.:11:03.

ill actually. The great thing about Tim Peake as he is always smiling.

:11:04.:11:08.

He loves being a spaceman and it is brilliant! Absolutely you should, do

:11:09.:11:13.

you fancy it, going into space? I don't think so but there has been a

:11:14.:11:16.

British woman in space before Tim Peake and I would like to hear it

:11:17.:11:25.

for her. But good to have a bricked up there. And his helmet worked but

:11:26.:11:30.

they had to work because the American helmet didn't. Could you

:11:31.:11:34.

imagine if it was Tim Peake's helmet, we would have all the

:11:35.:11:38.

stories tomorrow about Britain being rubbish! But it worked. But it was

:11:39.:11:48.

all fine, just a precaution. Another picture, because it is TV. Inside

:11:49.:11:54.

the vault, the Hatton Garden safety deposit police, were that incredible

:11:55.:12:01.

and audacious heist took place last Easter. Early hour we were seeing

:12:02.:12:07.

correspondence squeeze through the concrete block, and this is the mess

:12:08.:12:13.

they left behind. They didn't even clear up after themselves, didn't

:12:14.:12:16.

recycle anything! It is an amazing photograph. It was a key factor in

:12:17.:12:22.

the little report I would like to share, which is that it reveals the

:12:23.:12:27.

reason why the missing man, why he is called Basil. We don't know his

:12:28.:12:35.

real name, do we? Why they call him Basil is due to his Basil Brush

:12:36.:12:40.

style read here! And he is still being hunted, like the Fox. The

:12:41.:12:47.

ghost vanished. With 10 million quid apparently, at least. But this is a

:12:48.:12:54.

story, a crime, and people have lost a huge amount of money but it is

:12:55.:12:57.

fascinating. You should not like it but you cannot help it! It is the

:12:58.:13:03.

fact these old guys doing the final, it is like a film. I know it is a

:13:04.:13:08.

cliche, but there will be a film about it almost certainly within a

:13:09.:13:12.

short space of time. Most of them are caught. They will go down for

:13:13.:13:19.

the very long time. Finally, Kate will run a newsroom from the palace.

:13:20.:13:27.

She is having a stab at being a guest editor. Very exciting news.

:13:28.:13:35.

She is going to be guest editing for the Huffington Post, with a focus on

:13:36.:13:41.

child mental health, which obviously is a very important subject. The

:13:42.:13:47.

only thought I had really was that I hope she doesn't apply the same

:13:48.:13:51.

level of journalistic talent that her sister... Do you remember? It

:13:52.:14:04.

was derided. A spoofed Twitter feed, I seem to recall. The appeal for the

:14:05.:14:09.

Huffington Post is quite a coup for them. Far be it for me to knock my

:14:10.:14:18.

Internet colleagues but it is a big publicity coup, that is what it is

:14:19.:14:24.

about. Is it as simple as that? Is it because she is a princess? Any

:14:25.:14:29.

magazine editor would kill to have Kate editing. But doesn't it make it

:14:30.:14:33.

look like your job can be done by any so-and-so? That may be true, but

:14:34.:14:43.

I am afraid... Shifting units. I have been told, that news presenting

:14:44.:14:49.

is just reading the autocue and any five-year-old can do it, so there

:14:50.:14:56.

you are. That is the papers for this hour, but Sue and James are back at

:14:57.:15:01.

half past 11 with another look at the stories tomorrow.

:15:02.:15:16.

Hello and welcome to Sportsday - I'm Hugh Woozencroft.
