England out of a tricky spot against Johannesburg. -- against South

:00:00.:00:00.

Africa in Johannesburg. Hello and welcome to

:00:00.:00:17.

our look ahead to what the papers With me are Sue Matthias,

:00:18.:00:20.

senior news features editor at the Financial Times,

:00:21.:00:23.

and James Millar, Westminster The Times shows a picture of British

:00:24.:00:25.

astronaut Tim Peake on his first spacewalk,

:00:26.:00:29.

where he's been fixing part The i reports on suggestions that

:00:30.:00:32.

red light districts should be set up for sex workers in cities

:00:33.:00:41.

including London and Glasgow. The Daily Mail claims that hundreds

:00:42.:00:43.

of thousands of tons of recycling is The Independent has an exclusive

:00:44.:00:47.

report on Deepcut Barracks, where it's claimed there was a culture

:00:48.:00:51.

of bullying and sexual assaults. The Sun says motorists are paying

:00:52.:00:56.

nearly 5p a litre too much for petrol, accusing companies

:00:57.:00:59.

of profiteering instead of passing The Guardian reports that 600

:01:00.:01:01.

British citizens have been caught trying to enter Syria to join

:01:02.:01:06.

the so-called Islamic State and And the Telegraph leads

:01:07.:01:09.

on discussions over 600 Britons caught trying to join

:01:10.:01:40.

jihadis. 600 caught trying to join, so not necessarily those who managed

:01:41.:01:49.

to get through. In the story, it says there are 800 already in

:01:50.:01:54.

there. That makes a total of 1400 who have either tried to get in and

:01:55.:01:58.

some have succeeded and some have not. We keep hearing about people

:01:59.:02:05.

going there and trying to join ISIS and this is a good story because it

:02:06.:02:10.

puts a number on it and it is quite a worrying number. And praise for

:02:11.:02:18.

the Turkish. Yes. That is true. Philip Hammond says there is an

:02:19.:02:22.

increase in the number of Britons apprehended in Turkey because of a

:02:23.:02:26.

transformation in cooperation between the UK and Turkey. He is

:02:27.:02:33.

trying to find some good news because actually, the news has been

:02:34.:02:41.

pretty dismal. My impression from this article is that he is trying to

:02:42.:02:49.

give the impression that Britain is actually winning the fight to some

:02:50.:02:55.

extent. What is the criticism of Russia? The air strikes are not

:02:56.:03:03.

where they are supposed to be? Yes. It is interesting that Philip

:03:04.:03:05.

Hammond is over there and he is producing stories, big stories. He

:03:06.:03:11.

says that the Russians are targeting civilians, bombing schools and

:03:12.:03:16.

hospitals. And not only that, they returned 20 minutes later when the

:03:17.:03:19.

rescue workers are there and bomb them again. That is in contravention

:03:20.:03:24.

of all sorts of rules and conventions and it is a big claim to

:03:25.:03:28.

make. Presumably he has the evidence to back it up. The Sun. Drivers

:03:29.:03:38.

ripped off. Petrol chumps. It feels like we are being blamed for paying

:03:39.:03:46.

too much. I think the idea is that they are taking us for chumps. And

:03:47.:03:54.

the headline on the next page... Brent screwed. The oil price has hit

:03:55.:04:05.

an all-time low and it is not being passed on to the consumer. People

:04:06.:04:14.

are making money and we, the people at the end of the chain, are paying

:04:15.:04:20.

the price. We don't have a choice. We cannot stop buying it. The one

:04:21.:04:27.

thing missing from this story is the word tax because the vast majority

:04:28.:04:31.

of the cost of a litre of petrol goes to the government. You could

:04:32.:04:38.

take it up with them. Says what petrol should cost but who decides

:04:39.:04:43.

what the acceptable level of profit should be? Possibly something for

:04:44.:04:47.

Jeremy Corbyn to get into. Nationalise the lot of it and set a

:04:48.:05:01.

price that we. -- that way. Recycling being burned or buried.

:05:02.:05:10.

Because some of the recycling we put out is contaminated because people

:05:11.:05:14.

do not separate it well enough. Instead of suggesting people should

:05:15.:05:18.

separate their rubbish more carefully, the Daily Mail should

:05:19.:05:24.

suggest that all recycling is rubbish. -- is suggesting. But the

:05:25.:05:31.

vast majority is being recycled and the council with the poorest record,

:05:32.:05:34.

which is Manchester City Council, only turns away 18 bins for every

:05:35.:05:41.

100 four recycling, which I think is a good record. Is this spreading the

:05:42.:05:52.

pain in the budget? Yes. This is another George Osborne intervention

:05:53.:05:58.

into pensions and this time, it is on income tax relief. The proposal

:05:59.:06:04.

is that he spreads that around a bit more equitably because the current

:06:05.:06:08.

situation is the more money you make, the more pension tax relief

:06:09.:06:13.

you get. The new proposal would level it down so that everyone gets

:06:14.:06:17.

a flat rate. That seems to be quite a neat way of him pitching for what

:06:18.:06:24.

he calls the common ground, moving into that area vacated by Jeremy

:06:25.:06:29.

Corbyn. And it happens to save him billions of pounds as well. Red

:06:30.:06:40.

lights on set for UK cities. -- is this a done deal? It does not seem

:06:41.:06:48.

to be a done deal. It seems that Leeds has been trialling this with

:06:49.:06:52.

some success, stopping violent attacks on women workers, and there

:06:53.:06:59.

are proposals for that to be rolled out across the country. But as James

:07:00.:07:07.

has pointed out earlier, we cannot tell from this report... I'm not

:07:08.:07:14.

certain if it has actually reduced crime. Sex workers are more willing

:07:15.:07:19.

to report crime but I'm not certain if we have figures on how successful

:07:20.:07:22.

it has been. That is a good thing, however... I think it has led to a

:07:23.:07:27.

reduction in attacks on sex workers and therefore the police... I'm not

:07:28.:07:33.

sure it has actually worked like that. You and your need for accurate

:07:34.:07:39.

statistics! You are ruining all about stories! It might catch on.

:07:40.:07:49.

The Telegraph. Easter to fall in the same with every year. Christmas is

:07:50.:07:54.

always on December 25. Why should not east of the fixed? Absolutely.

:07:55.:08:02.

And it is a very big question. It seems the Archbishop of Canterbury

:08:03.:08:07.

has had this thought and so has Pope Francis as well as the Coptic

:08:08.:08:13.

Orthodox Church patriarch as well, so it looks like it may gather steam

:08:14.:08:18.

and actually happen, which would be popular for the Archbishop, who is

:08:19.:08:23.

not exactly covered in popularity this week. At present, Easter falls

:08:24.:08:29.

on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal

:08:30.:08:34.

equinox. It would be easier if it fell on the same week... But does it

:08:35.:08:39.

matter? Yes, because it makes life easier. The tourism industry,

:08:40.:08:44.

sporting fixtures, the government... But the vital sentence

:08:45.:08:52.

in the entire story is that even just an admits that the first

:08:53.:08:56.

attempt to do this was in the 10th century. -- even the Archbishop

:08:57.:09:02.

admits. They have not got a good record of agreeing on things. There

:09:03.:09:05.

is a first time for everything. One would hope so. It is extraordinary.

:09:06.:09:15.

People who think we should have a more secular way of organising

:09:16.:09:22.

things... I know that Easter is a religious holiday... But many

:09:23.:09:27.

schools have the first few weeks in April, come what may. Bait set the

:09:28.:09:35.

school holidays and Easter can just float around it. -- they set. I

:09:36.:09:39.

think it would be welcomed by many people if it comes off. The other

:09:40.:09:47.

papers have this story but they have not given it so much space. The

:09:48.:09:58.

Express. Page three. A giant step for major Tim. It is no one's fault

:09:59.:10:03.

but the images in the newspapers just do not do it justice. They

:10:04.:10:11.

really don't. They are very blurry. They are in space! And I'm having

:10:12.:10:17.

trouble identifying the object that I believe is called the sequential

:10:18.:10:25.

shunt units. I wanted to say that. Is that the one circled in red? No,

:10:26.:10:37.

that is Tim. Conduit spot a sequential shunt units if they

:10:38.:10:51.

pictures were clear? -- could you. What is this one? That is the

:10:52.:10:59.

international space station. Do you know what I'm staggered by? First,

:11:00.:11:03.

how you would get your head straight to go out there. And then all of

:11:04.:11:08.

that kit... 14 layers of different materials and those massive gloves,

:11:09.:11:13.

how are you supposed to fix anything? It is like wearing oven

:11:14.:11:25.

mitts. It is like just after Christmas when every toy has those

:11:26.:11:30.

fiddly ties that you just cannot and do. You don't just walk into space

:11:31.:11:37.

without any preparation. They did it well. They did not finish the entire

:11:38.:11:40.

job but they achieved the main objective. They were out there four

:11:41.:11:51.

hours and 43 minutes. He is on Twitter. You can ask him to take a

:11:52.:11:57.

better picture. That is not what I'm saying. I'm going to watch it

:11:58.:12:07.

tomorrow morning. Page seven of the Mirror. Friends reunion show. Mathew

:12:08.:12:16.

Perry cannot be there. What kind of reunion show is that if one out of

:12:17.:12:22.

six cast members will not be there? I used to like Friends. I never

:12:23.:12:33.

watched it. You can. It is an everyday. I know about Rachel and

:12:34.:12:42.

her hair. This is a reunion in it is a shame because the sixth of them

:12:43.:12:46.

have hardly covered themselves in glory over the 11 years or so...

:12:47.:12:51.

Some of them have done other things. But nothing as good as

:12:52.:12:55.

Friends. It would be nice to have them all together. But he has a

:12:56.:13:00.

theatre show in London at the moment. What has he been doing

:13:01.:13:05.

between Friends and this theatre show? He has had quite a colourful

:13:06.:13:13.

existence. It's on the internet. I'm not saying it here. And he also

:13:14.:13:22.

wrote this play. That is what he has been doing. Wholesome writing. Does

:13:23.:13:33.

not bode well? Give him a chance! Someone on Twitter has asked if they

:13:34.:13:38.

don't bring me costly and a wagon wheel to keep me going? -- bring me

:13:39.:13:42.

a brew. No, they don't. Coming up next,

:13:43.:13:44.

it's time for Sportsday.
