after the Papers. Hello and welcome to

:00:09.:00:14.

our look ahead to what the papers With me are the writer Natalie

Haynes and the Parliamentary correspondent of the south-west

tough with schools that allow girls to wear a full Islamic veil,

or niqab, The Telegraph says the government is

:00:50.:00:51.

backing higher council tax charges in flood risk areas,

:00:52.:00:57.

to pay for improved defences. The Daily Mail reports on the cases

:00:58.:01:03.

of three more children, who it claims died after allegedly being

:01:04.:01:07.

failed by the NHS 111 helpline. The Express says many people will

have to keep on working till they're eighty,

after cashing in their pensions with And the Sun has a picture

:01:15.:01:17.

of what it says is the winning lottery ticket that was

:01:18.:01:21.

put in the wash by a someone in Worcester who is now trying to

:01:22.:01:24.

claim their share of the jackpot. The Guardian says Ofsted is to get

:01:25.:01:39.

tough on schools that allow girls to wear the full veil. What is this

:01:40.:01:45.

about? This seems to be the latest in a series of nudges from people in

:01:46.:01:50.

power directed at schools. Perhaps increasing examples of pupils as

:01:51.:01:55.

well as teachers wearing the veil. The Prime Minister said he thought

:01:56.:02:02.

they were sensible rules, and now we have the chief inspector of schools

:02:03.:02:04.

who says he is determined to stand up on the side of those who do want

:02:05.:02:12.

it, to restrict the wearing of the veil. He is saying that schools

:02:13.:02:15.

which allow the wearing of the veil, and where it can be shown to

:02:16.:02:24.

hinder effective teaching, are inadequate. The chief inspector

:02:25.:02:29.

seems to be wanting to nudge schools into the direction of not wanting

:02:30.:02:32.

the veil but it is government policy to allow schools to do what they

:02:33.:02:36.

want. Is that what the government is trying to do? Nudge them into not

:02:37.:02:42.

wearing the veil? I think so. There seems to be a fear that perhaps as

:02:43.:02:46.

more schools go in the direction of allowing the wearing of the veil,

:02:47.:02:55.

the government... There is nothing in Parliament to prevent a state

:02:56.:02:57.

school making the wearer not the veil pulser he -- the wearing of the

:02:58.:03:06.

veil compulsory. All the government can do and the chief inspector is

:03:07.:03:15.

try to imply. Why doesn't the government just Bennett like France

:03:16.:03:34.

did? -- ban it? It seems that they're not trying to make a small,

:03:35.:03:39.

secular pushback. It is a very strange set of stories to have 24

:03:40.:03:43.

hours apart. A very strange story and hopefully we will get more

:03:44.:03:48.

clarity on that in the weeks ahead. The Times, Roma covers its jewels

:03:49.:04:11.

for the Iran visit -- Rome. Venus has been put in a box. And the horse

:04:12.:04:21.

has bits that are offensive. It is the nudity which is problematic,

:04:22.:04:24.

rather than the fact that technically these statues are both

:04:25.:04:27.

called. Marcus Israeli as was deified by his successors which is

:04:28.:04:34.

what happens when you are a good emperor -- Aurelius. But this Iran

:04:35.:04:43.

visit includes a trip to the Pope. I suppose this means you need to be

:04:44.:04:51.

deified because Venus got no consideration. Iran has got

:04:52.:04:57.

gazillions of dollars in the welcome mat is being laid out all over the

:04:58.:05:02.

world. And if that means covering up your gods, so be it. I was amused by

:05:03.:05:08.

the fact that they were worried that the Arabian president would stand

:05:09.:05:10.

too close to the horse whose genitals are clearly visible. It

:05:11.:05:16.

makes you wonder what they do with forces in Iran. Also the president

:05:17.:05:22.

went to university in Glasgow, so he has seen worse. He has probably seen

:05:23.:05:29.

enough flesh to last a lifetime. He is perhaps even eaten a deep-fried

:05:30.:05:36.

Mars bar. And she's getting upset by bits? The good news is, Marcus

:05:37.:05:40.

Aurelius had a good sense of humour, he would've accepted it all.

:05:41.:05:46.

Everyone is beating the door for Tehran now. They have come in from

:05:47.:05:52.

the cold, the sanctions has been lifted -- have, and they have $150

:05:53.:06:00.

billion in assets. They can now spend that. And when they start

:06:01.:06:03.

selling oil, they will realise it is not worth that much anymore. Italy

:06:04.:06:09.

used to be Iran's biggest trading partner and it's gone from 7 billion

:06:10.:06:17.

euros a year to 1.6. They want all that cash back now. Talking about

:06:18.:06:23.

cash. The Google conspiracy, Tories have 25 meetings with firm before

:06:24.:06:32.

chief tax deal. One of the most amusing aspect of this, is on

:06:33.:06:39.

Saturday, the chancellor came out at almost announced the deal with

:06:40.:06:45.

Google believing that it would work for him. Little did he know. He's

:06:46.:06:51.

been known as the submarine, when anything wrong, he will submerge for

:06:52.:06:55.

long periods and now he is fully submerged. The Daily Mirror story

:06:56.:07:00.

alleges that there were a series of cosy meetings between top Tories and

:07:01.:07:08.

Google, perhaps there was a very small amount of tax that they pay.

:07:09.:07:12.

It does say there is no suggestion any rules were broken and a broad

:07:13.:07:16.

range of topics were discussed and you can imagine there were many

:07:17.:07:19.

reasons why government ministers would want to meet Google. I'm not

:07:20.:07:25.

sure the Daily Mirror is floating the idea of a conspiracy. The

:07:26.:07:31.

chancellor seem to believe it was a significant sum of money that we

:07:32.:07:35.

would be grateful for. They are keen to try to make this a personal

:07:36.:07:41.

crisis for George Osborne. The fact is, the French managed to get twice

:07:42.:07:45.

as much out of Google. It is depressing. Three times as much. We

:07:46.:07:55.

don't seem to be quite as good at negotiating as people who are

:07:56.:07:59.

renowned around the world for shrugging. Probably the single worst

:08:00.:08:04.

thing about this is timing. If you are self-employed, I am sure you did

:08:05.:08:07.

your taxes months and months ago but possibly you might have left them

:08:08.:08:12.

till today. In which case, it is very painful to sit down and work

:08:13.:08:15.

out how much you owe and then work out proportionately how much Google

:08:16.:08:19.

is paying. It is hard not to feel a little grouchy. I don't know what

:08:20.:08:29.

you mean, I paid mine ages ago. The Times, pharmacies face closure?

:08:30.:08:39.

Yes. The Times has got a headline which feels a bit cutting against

:08:40.:08:43.

the grain because we know that it is difficult to get a GP appointment

:08:44.:08:47.

recently, and also that the public is trying to push -- the government

:08:48.:08:52.

is try to push more and more people to go to pharmacies when they can,

:08:53.:08:56.

so why on earth are they going to close? But apparently there are too

:08:57.:09:03.

many of them. 40% of pharmacies are in clusters where there are at least

:09:04.:09:09.

three other pharmacies within a ten minute walk. That does seem like a

:09:10.:09:13.

lot. The result appears to be there will be a huge funding cuts and as

:09:14.:09:18.

many as 3000 pharmacies will close. We could debate whether that is too

:09:19.:09:21.

many were too few but the story points out that if pharmacies do

:09:22.:09:26.

close, it will probably not be a big change. Probably likely to be

:09:27.:09:31.

smaller, independent pharmacies. I'm thinking about it, on the street

:09:32.:09:35.

where I live there is a number of pharmacies within 25 yards, three I

:09:36.:09:46.

think. That's right, you could get as many drugs as you could legally.

:09:47.:09:55.

Or vitamin supplements. Ten minutes is a long way if you are not feeling

:09:56.:10:00.

well or if you have an injury. If you have a sprained ankle, you don't

:10:01.:10:03.

want to go to Accident and Emergency, so it is precisely the

:10:04.:10:09.

kind of thing that would be a good idea to die treated at a pharmacy

:10:10.:10:13.

and that could be difficult. Sure. Moving on to the Express. Keep on

:10:14.:10:25.

working until you are 18. People are cashing in on their pensions early

:10:26.:10:40.

-- 80. 700,000 people have already cashed them in. There are

:10:41.:10:44.

long-running fears that that means they will have nothing to retire

:10:45.:10:52.

on. I suppose that is slightly different to the idea of keeping on

:10:53.:10:56.

working. This doesn't mean the state pension rate is going to rise

:10:57.:10:58.

further in terms of age. That is already gone up to 67 which is

:10:59.:11:06.

controversial enough. But if you continue to continue working until

:11:07.:11:12.

-- if you choose to continue working until you are 80, that is another

:11:13.:11:18.

thing. Positive news, new analysis reveals financial planners say 100

:11:19.:11:23.

is the new 80, said you will have to keep working until you are 80

:11:24.:11:29.

because you are going to live until you are 100. Does that mean 80 is

:11:30.:11:47.

the new 60? Yes. I think this actress exemplifies that. I love her

:11:48.:11:54.

with all my heart. Would you work until you are 80? I'm self-employed

:11:55.:11:57.

so I'm probably going to have to. I will still have my job. I don't

:11:58.:12:02.

think that many people will be working until they are 80. It looks

:12:03.:12:08.

a little bit like you heat of killing me before I get

:12:09.:12:13.

a little bit like you heat of killing me before I there. Going to

:12:14.:12:23.

the Guardian briefly Parliament faces -- briefly. Parliamentary MPs

:12:24.:12:31.

are going to have to move to temporary accommodation because of

:12:32.:12:34.

refurbishment. This is close to home, this is where my desk is. I

:12:35.:12:40.

wouldn't expect anyone to feel sorry for me or anyone else, but the place

:12:41.:12:44.

is falling apart and everyone except that at some point, MPs are going to

:12:45.:12:48.

have to be about. The only question is when, where and if everyone was

:12:49.:12:54.

out at the same time. What's new about this story is that suggests

:12:55.:13:00.

that the MPs move down the road into Whitehall where the Department of

:13:01.:13:05.

Health is, and they would vacate Parliament completely for six years.

:13:06.:13:08.

And peaceful fight that tooth and nail. There are so many MPs at

:13:09.:13:13.

Westminster who are dead set against that idea -- MPs will fight that

:13:14.:13:21.

tooth and nail. They think they will lose the prestigious of working

:13:22.:13:30.

where they do -- prestige. The Sun, an exclusive. A mixup with the

:13:31.:13:41.

lottery? This woman has the right numbers, but not necessarily

:13:42.:13:46.

conveniently, all the distinction marks appear to been removed. The

:13:47.:13:50.

numbers are pleasingly legible but the barcodes which would identify it

:13:51.:13:57.

as a legitimate ticket are missing. I suppose we will have to wait and

:13:58.:14:00.

see. She is irate about being outed as a grandmother. She looks pretty

:14:01.:14:09.

young. 48. I would be feeling pretty good about myself. She probably

:14:10.:14:15.

didn't get to choose the headlines. The sad thing is by the time this

:14:16.:14:22.

story plays out, it takes six months, that is what you have got to

:14:23.:14:27.

test all the claims, and by the time that happens it will all have

:14:28.:14:35.

slipped our minds. ?33 million. I wouldn't have to work until I was AG

:14:36.:14:45.

after all -- 80. I think it is a brilliant image. It looks like the

:14:46.:14:48.

shroud of Turin.
