Serena Williams in the fourth round. That is all coming up in 15 minutes,

:00:00.:00:00.

after the papers... Hello and welcome to our look

:00:00.:00:14.

at the morning's papers. With me are Martin Bentham,

:00:15.:00:17.

Home Affairs Editor of the London Evening Standard,

:00:18.:00:20.

and Lindsay Watling, Westminster Correspondent

:00:21.:00:22.

at the Press and Journal. The Daily Express points

:00:23.:00:26.

to the French Prime Minister's warning that the migrant crisis

:00:27.:00:35.

threatens the very existence The Independent claims that a US

:00:36.:00:37.

healthcare giant is making a fortune from the NHS but hardly paying

:00:38.:00:41.

any corporation tax. The FT says Google has reached

:00:42.:00:46.

a deal with the Treasury to pay The i reports that a mother

:00:47.:00:49.

who wrote to David Cameron about the bedroom tax

:00:50.:00:54.

took her own life. "New drug to wipe out superbugs"

:00:55.:00:57.

is the headline in the Times. The paper says British

:00:58.:01:00.

scientists have spearheaded The Daily Mail claims the Queen has

:01:01.:01:02.

shown "extraordinary" support for Lord Brammall, who was falsely

:01:03.:01:08.

accused of child abuse. The Telegraph lead is that more

:01:09.:01:11.

than 100 MPs want to end BT's monopoly of the broadband cable

:01:12.:01:14.

network because over five million And finally, The Mirror reports that

:01:15.:01:17.

new British trains will be built in Spain as part of a ?490 million

:01:18.:01:23.

deal in what it says We can start with the express and

:01:24.:01:37.

the impact the migrant crisis and what has happened to the Schengen

:01:38.:01:41.

area will have on the European Union, the crisis will kill off the

:01:42.:01:44.

EU, is the headline with even the French prime ministers saying the EU

:01:45.:01:50.

is on the brink of disaster. It does depend on who you speak to, this? It

:01:51.:01:54.

does but these are very strong words from the French Prime Minister. He

:01:55.:02:00.

said that Europe could die, he has put this point in no uncertain

:02:01.:02:04.

terms, very strongly and over the course of the day there has been a

:02:05.:02:08.

growing urgency with the news just now about further people drowning

:02:09.:02:13.

today, so I think there is a growing sense of urgency ahead of the summer

:02:14.:02:17.

when we might be flooded with even more people trying to come in with

:02:18.:02:24.

the prospect of many more disasters. It does depend on whether we think

:02:25.:02:28.

the EU is just more than the Schengen area and people crossing

:02:29.:02:35.

within the EU? When you see that headline, it is wishful thinking

:02:36.:02:41.

from the express! Is clear the very serious point behind that and made

:02:42.:02:44.

by the French Prime Minister but you are right to think that free

:02:45.:02:50.

movement is intrinsic in terms of the ability to work in different

:02:51.:02:52.

European countries, something David Cameron wants to potentially

:02:53.:02:58.

restrict, he does not write night but also to move without passport

:02:59.:03:01.

and I think it is quite possible there will be a change and some

:03:02.:03:06.

parts of Europe you will not be able to go to without showing your

:03:07.:03:11.

passport and that has already happened with French and German

:03:12.:03:14.

temporary passport checks. It does not mean the whole of the EU project

:03:15.:03:18.

dies but it will be fundamentally different to what it is right now.

:03:19.:03:28.

Let us look at the Daily Mirror. The betrayal and the national distress.

:03:29.:03:34.

The government betraying the British Steel industry and the British rail

:03:35.:03:40.

industry I allowing contractors to go for the new Northern Rail trains,

:03:41.:03:45.

they are bone rattling things, these nutrients are well needed but the

:03:46.:03:50.

argument is that instead of going to the factory in Derby, supporting

:03:51.:03:56.

British jobs, they are going to a Spanish builder who will build the

:03:57.:03:59.

trains in Spain and it follows the earlier Thameslink contract, those

:04:00.:04:08.

trains also given to the German firm Siemens and they are also abroad.

:04:09.:04:13.

The argument is a has-been at egg each rail. Not enough support for

:04:14.:04:20.

the key British industries, for the steel and the trains. What do you

:04:21.:04:27.

replace them with? In these places? They are so reliant on certain

:04:28.:04:33.

plants? Inside there is quite a moving case study about three

:04:34.:04:36.

generations of the same family employed in the steel industry and

:04:37.:04:41.

the suggest it does not look like Bobby any job for Thomas, aged

:04:42.:04:45.

seven. Pretty desperate for some people and this comes at a time when

:04:46.:04:50.

the government is promoting the Great British brand, we promote

:04:51.:04:55.

Great Britain to great fanfare around the world and yet these

:04:56.:05:01.

contracts are going abroad. These figures do not necessarily tally up.

:05:02.:05:06.

Millions with dire internets. A coalition of MPs coming forward to

:05:07.:05:14.

try to improve this situation? This is a particularly big issue in parts

:05:15.:05:20.

of the country like the north-east of Scotland and in parts of this

:05:21.:05:21.

area Telegraph says in the headline.

:05:22.:05:31.

Older people not having internet and people in remote areas. They suggest

:05:32.:05:36.

that this coalition of MPs suggest that more

:05:37.:05:54.

not connected, how can you do that? The worst affected are people in the

:05:55.:05:55.

do not get a decent service at all and older people who do not use the

:05:56.:06:03.

internet much so that is a group of people excluded but even in London,

:06:04.:06:08.

the internet services are not as good as they should be and

:06:09.:06:14.

businesses complain that we have not got the speed of service that we

:06:15.:06:20.

need to have two compete properly in a world market and this report says,

:06:21.:06:24.

I am not sure who has done this research, published by Grant Shapps,

:06:25.:06:29.

and there are a lot of people wanting to get the contract taken

:06:30.:06:31.

away from and so on mean it is economically

:06:32.:06:40.

and so on mean it is economically important, not just from a direct

:06:41.:06:47.

consumer point of view. No one will come to your business in Britain if

:06:48.:06:51.

they cannot connect. The bedroom tax torment of the woman who took her

:06:52.:06:56.

life. A woman who wrote to the Prime Minister struggling after the spare

:06:57.:07:03.

room subsidy was introduced. It is a horrible story, a terrible tragedy

:07:04.:07:13.

that this woman, her son took his own life and she has been upset

:07:14.:07:19.

about that and the spare room subsidy, she has written to the

:07:20.:07:22.

Prime Minister and a taken her own life. It is difficult to attribute a

:07:23.:07:27.

particular cause to something, I would be careful about doing that

:07:28.:07:30.

but the coroner said it was not clear if she intended to take life

:07:31.:07:34.

or maybe she was trying to gain leverage over the council with a

:07:35.:07:39.

staged arrangement. And possibly trying to send a message. Either

:07:40.:07:44.

way, it is clearly a pretty terrible situation. An awful thing to have

:07:45.:07:49.

happened. You cannot read the story and not be moved by the predicament

:07:50.:07:55.

of this lady and MPs in the Commons, Labour MPs repeatedly raised stories

:07:56.:07:58.

like this but this is particularly sad. It is sometimes difficult to

:07:59.:08:06.

use these as a weapon against a particular policy because who knows

:08:07.:08:13.

what was going on? Stories in The Times, new drug to wipe out

:08:14.:08:19.

superbugs. An antibiotic bullet created from breastmilk. When I

:08:20.:08:24.

first read that it sounded like they were developing not just another

:08:25.:08:26.

antibiotic but something entirely different? This is supposed to be a

:08:27.:08:33.

superbug killing antibiotic but the thing that struck me in this piece

:08:34.:08:38.

is the words from Dame Sally Davies, the Chief Medical Officer, she said

:08:39.:08:47.

that Britain has not planned for a world without antibiotics, which is

:08:48.:08:50.

quite frightening. We are planning to sort this. That stood out for me.

:08:51.:08:57.

This is quite an important story because it is feared we will run out

:08:58.:09:02.

of effective antibiotics because they are being overused by people

:09:03.:09:06.

and not being taken fully and being used in animals and these different

:09:07.:09:09.

problems have been articulated quite this differently in recent months by

:09:10.:09:14.

medical professionals and this suggests there is something here

:09:15.:09:18.

developed and one of the great strengths of this country, we talk

:09:19.:09:22.

about the weaknesses but one of the strengths is the pharmaceutical

:09:23.:09:25.

industry and the ability to generate new research and products which

:09:26.:09:30.

actually are absolutely pioneering and ground-breaking and this is

:09:31.:09:33.

clearly at the early stage but if it was the case that we had found some

:09:34.:09:38.

new antibiotic that can help to counter this problem that will

:09:39.:09:41.

otherwise cause people to die from simple things. You would not expect

:09:42.:09:48.

that these days. Serious problem and it will be very good. If this is

:09:49.:09:53.

realised and we can produce more. But will not be the only think you

:09:54.:09:57.

will want to produce, you will want to keep producing more and more of

:09:58.:10:01.

these antibiotics to keep on top of this. This picture story, Charlotte

:10:02.:10:06.

Rampling. She has upset some people in the USA over this discussion of

:10:07.:10:12.

how diverse the Oscar nominations are this year? She has suggested

:10:13.:10:17.

that black actors were overlooked for nominations because they were

:10:18.:10:20.

not good enough so she has caused quite a list of all of this, saying

:10:21.:10:26.

that to boycott the Academy Awards would be racist to white people.

:10:27.:10:33.

Martin has some strong views? Shard grabbing has gone from being the

:10:34.:10:37.

heroine of the British screen to persona non grata in the eyes of

:10:38.:10:42.

some people and she might not have phrased this in the best way and

:10:43.:10:47.

what she has tried to say is we should not be classifying people and

:10:48.:10:52.

everybody should be seen just as a person and not be certain labels and

:10:53.:10:55.

if you try to say that we should always have an award in which

:10:56.:10:59.

everybody is represented according to the category of person, man or

:11:00.:11:05.

woman, black or white, that is not necessarily a good thing. She was

:11:06.:11:08.

trying to say that but it has not come out in the way she wanted to.

:11:09.:11:12.

And when people talk about something that is sensitive, they do quite

:11:13.:11:16.

often get absolutely denounced for anything they say which does not

:11:17.:11:19.

seem to be fighting with us isolate the correct narrative and I do not

:11:20.:11:23.

think she is saying... The argument about the Oscars is it should not be

:11:24.:11:29.

the case that people, black actors are being overlooked because the

:11:30.:11:31.

judges somehow do not recognise black actors... Apparently it is not

:11:32.:11:41.

diverse? Not looking at black actors unless, somehow not seeing their

:11:42.:11:44.

talent because they are black and that is the argument and she is not

:11:45.:11:48.

saying that is the case, that we should have the best people picked

:11:49.:11:52.

and sometimes they might not be of a particular ethnicity or whatever.

:11:53.:11:56.

That is what she is trying to say, maybe not in the easiest way. Not

:11:57.:12:04.

easy to navigate. The daily record, newspaper of the year, 45,000 --

:12:05.:12:12.

?45,000 hangover, people on a bender? This peril of Daft Scots,

:12:13.:12:21.

they have been dubbed as sozzled on the front page, and this is slightly

:12:22.:12:25.

embarrassing for me as a half Scot, but they have been on a massive

:12:26.:12:29.

bender and they bought 500 kilos of fish in the process! As you do! Or

:12:30.:12:37.

that fish! This is the story of the day! 500 kilos of fish, the fish

:12:38.:12:44.

include Dover sole, halibut, lobster, king scallops, all of this

:12:45.:12:47.

stuff, you think, what on earth were you thinking? At least there are

:12:48.:12:57.

window fried Mars Bars. It was a credit card scam? Yes, it was

:12:58.:13:04.

criminal, ripped off credit cards. Not to be sympathised with. Not at

:13:05.:13:09.

all, laughed at. I hope the victims got their money back. That is it,

:13:10.:13:14.

Lindsay has survived and we will be back later. Coming up next, at 11

:13:15.:13:25.

o'clock, Google paying tax back to the UK Treasury after years of not

:13:26.:13:28.

paying enough. Coming up next, Sportsday...
