with an opponent's eyes. That is in 15 minutes. -- Andy Murray's

:00:00.:00:08.

first-round match. Hello, and welcome to our look

:00:09.:00:13.

ahead to what the papers With me are are Deborah Haynes,

:00:14.:00:16.

who's defence editor with the Times, and Torcuil Crichton,

:00:17.:00:21.

who's the political editor The Financial Times leads with

:00:22.:00:22.

the news that trade union bosses are warning ministers that Chinese

:00:23.:00:32.

steel imports are, in their words, leading British mills to

:00:33.:00:35.

the brink of "catastrophe". The Metro leads with a

:00:36.:00:39.

story we've been covering today - the suggestion that some Muslim

:00:40.:00:42.

women who fail to learn English The picture there is

:00:43.:00:46.

of the actress Amy Schumer, who suffered a broken shoe heel

:00:47.:00:49.

at the Critics' Choice Awards. The Express headline

:00:50.:00:53.

heralds the death of what it calls 'gold-plated' final

:00:54.:00:56.

salary pensions with the prediction that nearly every

:00:57.:00:58.

fund will be axed by next year. The photo on the right is

:00:59.:01:04.

of Tuppence Middleton - one of the stars of

:01:05.:01:07.

the BBC's new drama, War And Peace. The i's headline

:01:08.:01:10.

reads, "Fury as Student Grants are Axed" - it talks of "controversial"

:01:11.:01:12.

new laws passed without a full The Guardian leads

:01:13.:01:16.

with the story that the boss of the NHS in England is calling

:01:17.:01:22.

for a political consensus on how to the story that the Prime Minister

:01:23.:01:25.

would back a ban on Muslim women wearing a veil in schools, courts

:01:26.:01:34.

and other British institutions. Their cover picture shows

:01:35.:01:38.

singer/songwriter Don McLean of American Pie fame, who has been

:01:39.:01:40.

arrested and charged Let's begin our look at the papers.

:01:41.:01:58.

Let's begin with the Times. An interesting front-page headline,

:01:59.:02:03.

women charged more on sex as Thai street. Deborah will have strong

:02:04.:02:09.

views, but tell us what it is about -- on the high street. It has been

:02:10.:02:16.

staring us in the face for years. We have accepted it, and it is the way

:02:17.:02:20.

companies and shops charge women well for the same product, and this

:02:21.:02:27.

Times story by the consumer affairs editor, has brilliant examples. If

:02:28.:02:33.

you want to buy a scooter for a child in pink, it will cost ?5 more.

:02:34.:02:40.

For a pair of jeans for a man, but if you buy them for a woman, they

:02:41.:02:45.

cost more. It is the same material. You want a razor in pink, it will be

:02:46.:02:52.

46% extra. There is one bizarre exception, whose' parents for some

:02:53.:03:02.

bizarre reason cost less then goes' parents -- snick. -- 's secular. We

:03:03.:03:11.

have known about it but we have accepted it. We have not realise the

:03:12.:03:15.

huge disparities. They are shocking figures. It is so weird, because it

:03:16.:03:23.

is embarrassing to admit, but I have always bought men's races. --

:03:24.:03:30.

raises. Just because it is cheaper. I thought maybe the reason women's

:03:31.:03:38.

razors were more expensive is because they were in with something,

:03:39.:03:42.

but actually it is just that they are pink -- infused. An interesting

:03:43.:03:53.

story of something that has stayed us in the face for ages. The Times

:03:54.:03:58.

have analysed hundreds of products and, with these startling results.

:03:59.:04:09.

You have the reactions. The woman leading the committee in the Commons

:04:10.:04:13.

for women's equality is calling it unacceptable, and there is a

:04:14.:04:17.

suggestion retail bosses could be called before Parliament to justify

:04:18.:04:22.

this discrepancy tween men on whom are pricing. -- men and women's. We

:04:23.:04:34.

are 40 years on from equal pay but we know it is the gender pay still.

:04:35.:04:41.

Something as simple as spending money, you have to pay more if you

:04:42.:04:46.

are a female. There was an example of boys' pants being expensive, but

:04:47.:04:53.

they were examples of girls' costing more. It applies online as well.

:04:54.:04:59.

That will be an interesting investigation. Deborah, start us on

:05:00.:05:10.

the Daily Telegraph. They talk about David Cameron whacking a Muslim veil

:05:11.:05:18.

then -- backing. They have been clever picking up on comments that

:05:19.:05:24.

everyone else didn't really think about too much this morning, that

:05:25.:05:28.

the Prime Minister made on the Today programme where he says it could be

:05:29.:05:39.

possible for schools, courts, hospitals, border checks, those

:05:40.:05:45.

sorts of places, for women who have chosen to wear a veil to not be able

:05:46.:05:50.

to wear them, but people should have a right to choose what they want to

:05:51.:05:56.

read. He is not advocating Draconian systems like in France and Belgium

:05:57.:06:03.

-- what they want to wear. But this will probably if night that debate

:06:04.:06:07.

which has been long-running anyway. -- ignite. There is a whole package

:06:08.:06:13.

of measures such as the issue to deal with making Muslim women speak

:06:14.:06:16.

English, which has been controversial today. Apparently

:06:17.:06:22.

there will be other measures that will be announced. It is all aimed

:06:23.:06:28.

at stopping people from being radicalised and joining is an

:06:29.:06:31.

extent. An interesting point -- Islamic State. What is the

:06:32.:06:36.

connection? Getting people to speak English when they beat in the UK,

:06:37.:06:40.

that sounds sensible if a touch not practical. But going beyond that,

:06:41.:06:46.

that is different. Cameron did go beyond that today. There is enough

:06:47.:06:52.

meat in what he said about English lessons going one step you want. --

:06:53.:07:04.

beyond. Baroness Warsi called a lazy connection by saying that if a woman

:07:05.:07:14.

is here for 2.5 years and does not learn English, they can to -- be

:07:15.:07:25.

deported. And then British Muslims are being radicalised and deported

:07:26.:07:27.

into terrorism. That was today's story. The Telegraph have picked up

:07:28.:07:33.

on other comments made about the veil and how he would want it in

:07:34.:07:39.

certain circumstances like courts, council buildings perhaps where

:07:40.:07:46.

people are meeting where the public overlaps with the private, he would

:07:47.:07:51.

like to see the veil banned. It happens in France, Bolton and other

:07:52.:07:59.

bases in Europe -- Belgium. It feeds into that whole wider debate about

:08:00.:08:06.

multiculturalism and the liberation of women. Telling people what to

:08:07.:08:18.

wear. Tolerance is the British byword, and this does not seem very

:08:19.:08:23.

tolerant. Let's go to the Financial Times. I think it is your turn. It

:08:24.:08:32.

is our main news tonight, Chinese steel imports pushed mills to bring

:08:33.:08:37.

catastrophe. We are talking about Port Talbot being mothballed. This

:08:38.:08:44.

is a difficult and miserable thing for a lot of people. Devastating

:08:45.:08:49.

news. Widely expected where they were stacking steel in the car park

:08:50.:08:55.

because they could not sell it. About 1000 people using their jobs

:08:56.:09:00.

in Port Talbot and other plants across Britain. But from the grim

:09:01.:09:06.

news of the job losses, what is to come? China, which has been blamed

:09:07.:09:12.

for this lot of steel on the world market, is now trying to go for what

:09:13.:09:17.

is called market economy status with the World Trade Organisation. That

:09:18.:09:26.

means an economy where people buy and sell under state subsidy. We

:09:27.:09:31.

know China has not, and there have been warnings that this will cost

:09:32.:09:36.

Europeans millions of jobs and pounds in lost production because we

:09:37.:09:42.

will be flooded with Chinese goods. If people think this is blue-collar

:09:43.:09:47.

jobs, it is not. You will see paralegal, accountancy, professional

:09:48.:09:56.

jobs to the some extent any growth of China will carry on. But

:09:57.:10:02.

globalisation is unstoppable. People say the government should intervene,

:10:03.:10:08.

but to do what? One of our commentators said tonight about an

:10:09.:10:16.

overvalued currency. We cannot have any influence on that. At least the

:10:17.:10:20.

government don't want to have any influence over that. While everyone

:10:21.:10:25.

is bashing China over steel, the government has been all out on the

:10:26.:10:30.

offensive to woo Chinese investment to the UK, and with regard to the

:10:31.:10:35.

recognition from the WTO, bridging is supporting that. -- Britain. EU

:10:36.:10:42.

states are divided over whether they want to support China getting this

:10:43.:10:47.

economy status, but Britain is in favour, which shows that Housing act

:10:48.:10:55.

you have. It is a complex picture. -- balancing. I think David Cameron

:10:56.:10:58.

was going to tackle the Chinese leadership over steel, but we have

:10:59.:11:02.

not seen much evidence of that. Let's move on. The Sun, one big

:11:03.:11:09.

story, crackshot probed by crackpots. What is this about? This

:11:10.:11:17.

is another interesting example of a British soldier being chased through

:11:18.:11:25.

the courts potentially to do with actions on the battlefield. In this

:11:26.:11:31.

case, the British sniper is being probed for killing an Iraqi who is

:11:32.:11:36.

about to via a grenade because he did not shout a warning. That seems

:11:37.:11:43.

ludicrous. Why would you shout a warning if you are going to kill

:11:44.:11:46.

someone? The whole point of being a sniper is you are not seen. And you

:11:47.:11:52.

are in a wall sign. If you shout, it allows people to your position. --

:11:53.:11:59.

war zone. Top Army witch-hunt, it says, and there is a sense that

:12:00.:12:07.

certain law firms are chasing after an persecuting soldiers for actions

:12:08.:12:12.

they did during the Iraq war and the Afghanistan war. Iraq is especially

:12:13.:12:18.

in the spotlight because of this Iraqi historic allegations tribunal

:12:19.:12:25.

looking at about 1500 allegations relating to almost 300 soldiers who

:12:26.:12:28.

have been questioned in relation to this. There is a suggestion that

:12:29.:12:31.

charges could be bought against them. We have had the investigation

:12:32.:12:43.

into the incident where there are incidents where soldiers have

:12:44.:12:46.

misbehaved, but the idea that it is on a industrial scale does seem a

:12:47.:12:53.

bit suspicious. Or that every shot has to be investigated legally

:12:54.:12:59.

afterwards. It has an effect on the ability of commanders of Britain to

:13:00.:13:08.

wage war. There is a real concern that if you... There are lots of

:13:09.:13:14.

laws that legislate war anyway, any idea that you can add extra millions

:13:15.:13:18.

through human rights legislation really restricts the abilities of

:13:19.:13:24.

commanders to give conduct -- conduct battle. And Friends United.

:13:25.:13:40.

No more friends need reuniting says the Daily Telegraph. It is gone. It

:13:41.:13:53.

seems innovative and amazing, and it did what you said on the tin. You

:13:54.:14:00.

put your details in and classmates or people you never wanted to hear

:14:01.:14:07.

from again come up. Why did it die? It was overtaken by Facebook. And

:14:08.:14:14.

other social websites that were available. Did you use it with lack

:14:15.:14:21.

I did, actually. I put in my old school and all of these people

:14:22.:14:27.

popped up. It was years ago, then Facebook came along and you were at

:14:28.:14:31.

United, so you don't need to be reunited. It is interesting. This

:14:32.:14:39.

article talks about how it was blamed for thousands of divorces. It

:14:40.:14:45.

reignited millions of friendships as well. That is it for this hour.

:14:46.:14:55.

Thank you for joining us. Coming up next, it is time for the sport.

:14:56.:15:09.
