last eight. Also we will hear from Jimmy Anderson on how to save the

:00:00.:00:00.

fourth test. Hello and welcome to

:00:00.:00:14.

our look ahead to what the papers With me are Kevin Schofield, the

:00:15.:00:17.

Editor of Politics Home and Mina The Telegraph says the

:00:18.:00:21.

European Union is considering plans to "seal Greece off from the rest

:00:22.:00:28.

of the Continent", and move the passport-free zone so that it

:00:29.:00:31.

covers only northern Europe. It says the idea is aimed

:00:32.:00:36.

at tackling the migrant crisis. The Times has a story

:00:37.:00:40.

on the same theme - the papers says the Schengen zone could be suspended

:00:41.:00:43.

completely for two years. The 'i' leads with the agonising

:00:44.:00:47.

final message of the explorer Henry Worsley, who died just 30

:00:48.:00:49.

miles short of being the first man The Financial Times reports

:00:50.:00:53.

Downing Street has distanced itself from the Chancellor's claim that

:00:54.:01:01.

the ? 130 million tax deal with The Guardian says spending cuts are

:01:02.:01:04.

to blame for a rise The Mail says the NHS 111 service is

:01:05.:01:11.

a box-ticking exercise which can miss life-threatening

:01:12.:01:17.

symptoms in children. The Daily Express says scientists

:01:18.:01:21.

are getting close to developing 'It could be them' the Mirror

:01:22.:01:24.

reports that hundreds of people are now claiming to be

:01:25.:01:29.

the holders of the missing ? 33 Let's start with the Telegraph,

:01:30.:01:48.

dramatic plans for migrants. The idea is to take Greece out of the

:01:49.:01:59.

Schengen zone. Yes. Essentially, we would be leaving Greece to defend

:02:00.:02:06.

for itself. As you can imagine, this has not gone down terribly well in

:02:07.:02:13.

Athens. The government has said... Has accused the EU of assaulting it.

:02:14.:02:21.

There is a massive problem. Massive flow of migrants coming in to the

:02:22.:02:29.

region. Most of them coming up in Greece or the islands surrounding

:02:30.:02:35.

it. Then looking to make their way to the rest of the continent. It

:02:36.:02:41.

seems a pretty extreme solution to the problem. Is this Brussels saying

:02:42.:02:49.

it is not our problem? You would think that Greece, as a member,

:02:50.:02:54.

there would be a collective response. On the one hand, there is

:02:55.:02:58.

the issue of pushing the border up and pretending it is no longer any

:02:59.:03:03.

bodies problem but Greece and Turkey. It is strange that the

:03:04.:03:12.

European Union would also consider imposing internal checks on the

:03:13.:03:18.

borders between Europe because this is one of the most successful

:03:19.:03:25.

policies of the EU, have it the Schengen policy. If you keep them in

:03:26.:03:35.

Greece, the economy is doing so badly, the refugees cannot work and

:03:36.:03:40.

create a new life for themselves. It was almost like a blame game, as the

:03:41.:03:46.

Greek government is complaining. The blame game is from countries having

:03:47.:03:52.

huge conflicts and this is a symptom of it. It is bizarre that they would

:03:53.:03:57.

single out Greece like this. There has been controversy. Greece is not

:03:58.:04:03.

registered some of the refugees so they are not completely faultless

:04:04.:04:09.

and it is a failure of policy. The failure of the rupee in union in

:04:10.:04:20.

general. -- European Union. This is shocking, the numbers in this report

:04:21.:04:26.

by the Guardian shows the depths among mental patients in England has

:04:27.:04:32.

risen by 21% over the last three years. The article does the there

:04:33.:04:40.

are new ways of monitoring the figures and, therefore, it could be

:04:41.:04:46.

they were already high figures but were not being reported and we do

:04:47.:04:52.

not know. Regardless, there are over 700 people who have died and there

:04:53.:04:56.

are constraints on the NHS and the lack of ability to cope with those

:04:57.:05:02.

in need of support. There is also something here, again, about a

:05:03.:05:10.

lifeline given to those who can get support at home rather than going

:05:11.:05:15.

into hospital because the NHS is stretched. It is really a crisis,

:05:16.:05:24.

this issue of mental health. Kevin, this is part of the Guardian... It

:05:25.:05:30.

has been doing this for a few days, looking inside the NHS and they have

:05:31.:05:36.

come up with these figures. Is this something people in government will

:05:37.:05:42.

be taking notice of? They should be. Under the coalition, one of the main

:05:43.:05:50.

benefits was to make mental health more of an issue. These figures have

:05:51.:05:55.

been uncovered by Norman Lampe, health Minister in the previous

:05:56.:06:03.

government. He is a driving ambition was to improve services for those

:06:04.:06:09.

suffering from a mental illness. There was a scandal about unclaimed

:06:10.:06:18.

deaths, unexplained death that could be prevented were the proper

:06:19.:06:25.

procedures and resources put in place. They should be looking at

:06:26.:06:36.

this. What about the Daily Mail, Bob -- bombshell report over the 111

:06:37.:06:48.

service. A little boy died just after his first birthday. There were

:06:49.:06:56.

16 blunders that led to these poor baby dying. One of them is the fact

:06:57.:07:01.

that his parents really did everything necessary. They had gone

:07:02.:07:06.

to doctors. More than one GP failed to see symptoms. In the end, he was

:07:07.:07:13.

very ill and they called the 111 line at what is a very telling is

:07:14.:07:20.

that most staff use computer scripts and are not medically trained. If

:07:21.:07:27.

they miss a certain symptom, then it could cost somebody their life.

:07:28.:07:31.

Having said that, Kevin, the problems of this poor baby, they

:07:32.:07:36.

were missed by trained professionals anyway must make yes, they were. The

:07:37.:07:45.

extent occasions in which something could have been done. The parent did

:07:46.:07:50.

everything right and, as a parent, you would like to think that you

:07:51.:07:53.

could put your trust in the medical profession if your child is unwell,

:07:54.:08:01.

you leave the their hands and they would do everything they possibly

:08:02.:08:07.

can but multiple opportunities were missed and, as a parent, it is

:08:08.:08:12.

absolutely heartbreaking. I cannot imagine anything worse, especially

:08:13.:08:19.

when it is preventable. The ad line saying the phone line is not safe

:08:20.:08:29.

for six children, is that fair? This was the final blunder, the worst

:08:30.:08:35.

one. There are certain moments that they could have realised that the

:08:36.:08:41.

crying of the baby, the type of crying would have been indicative if

:08:42.:08:51.

it was a trained paediatrician or Doctor. You would go to the

:08:52.:09:01.

emergency or call 9/11. As you say, the parents were doing the best they

:09:02.:09:06.

can, thinking the person on the line would be giving them good advice.

:09:07.:09:11.

This is a case that has highlighted a -- but it is widespread. Is this

:09:12.:09:22.

turning into a bit of a problem for the government? There is a breakdown

:09:23.:09:30.

in the message. George Osborne was hailing this as a major success, 100

:09:31.:09:37.

and ?50 million brained out of Google. -- received. This is a step

:09:38.:09:51.

forward but more needs to be done. The problem is that George Osborne

:09:52.:09:57.

looks complacent. If you look at the revenues, 5.7 billion dollars that

:09:58.:10:06.

Google makes. 150 pound in tax is not the an awful lot. The French

:10:07.:10:13.

government is playing much more hardball with Google and has made

:10:14.:10:21.

500 million euros out of Google. -- ?150 million. You hammer individuals

:10:22.:10:31.

for not paying enough tax by a youth so happy that Google is not paying

:10:32.:10:37.

that much tax. This is the kind of thing that winds people up. You have

:10:38.:10:45.

these mega companies that pay next to nothing. From 2005-2015, the tax

:10:46.:11:02.

worked out to be 3%. Are people who say they are employing hundreds of

:11:03.:11:05.

people so to use scare them off and get them to go somewhere else rather

:11:06.:11:11.

than generating these? Personally, I think, if we have a tax rate, it has

:11:12.:11:18.

to be for all. Small businesses do not get a break like that. It should

:11:19.:11:25.

be British businesses are getting that sort of tax relief. It will

:11:26.:11:30.

increasingly be a problem, especially since the French are able

:11:31.:11:36.

to get three times that. In the mirror, we will scoop past the last

:11:37.:11:41.

story in the Times because we are running out of time. The winning

:11:42.:11:46.

Lotto ticket! LAUGHTER. There is only one person who won this. Where

:11:47.:11:53.

did they buy the ticket? Was it will start? You sneak over to try and

:11:54.:12:06.

claim it? If this woman is to be believed, unfortunately for her, she

:12:07.:12:11.

had heard ticket in the Jints pocket and it was put through the wash. --

:12:12.:12:23.

Jints. -- pants. The ticket has the numbers on it. The numbers checkout

:12:24.:12:28.

and it says that 2016 but the barcode is not scanned because she

:12:29.:12:33.

says it has been through the wash. Camelot have said they do want to

:12:34.:12:38.

pay but they have to be shelved it is the right person. Hundreds of

:12:39.:12:44.

people have thought, they will go for it. How are they trying to claim

:12:45.:12:57.

it? At least she has a ticket. You find this sort of companies will

:12:58.:13:03.

make up what they call greetings cards or business cards so, you

:13:04.:13:09.

know, I do not see any reason why they could not knock up a little

:13:10.:13:12.

ticket for you! Issue completely out of the picture?

:13:13.:13:24.

They have said that they want to pay it -- is she. They have to be 100%

:13:25.:13:35.

sure. They just don't have CCTV footage of her going into the shop.

:13:36.:13:39.

She checks out in terms of the area and the time it was bought, that is

:13:40.:13:44.

in her favour, it is just the final bar-code they cannot verify. They

:13:45.:13:47.

are worried about opening the door for people who say that is in her

:13:48.:13:50.

favour, it is just the final bar-code they cannot verify. They

:13:51.:13:52.

are worried about opening the door for people who say their seeing as

:13:53.:14:00.

the numbers -- who say their ticket was washed. She didn't know she was

:14:01.:14:06.

going to win the jackpot. -- seeing as the numbers show up. Whenever I

:14:07.:14:13.

play the lottery I end up forgetting about the ticket. Only God knows. We

:14:14.:14:18.

will end it there. Thank you very much indeed for coming in to look at

:14:19.:14:24.
