manager Louis van Gaal hits back at reports he is to leave the club

:00:00.:00:00.

again. That's all in Sportsday in 15 minutes. First, it is the papers.

:00:00.:00:16.

Welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us

:00:17.:00:19.

tomorrow. Settle down! With me are the Social Affairs

:00:20.:00:23.

Editor of the Guardian, Randeep Ramesh, and the Evening

:00:24.:00:25.

Standard columnist, Rosamund Urwin. Welcome both.

:00:26.:00:37.

It is Randeep's birthday today. Cake later. Let's start with the FT

:00:38.:00:43.

and Europe. Cameron eyes compromise over migrant benefit curbs. What

:00:44.:00:47.

compromise is this? It is an emergency brake in the system? Well,

:00:48.:00:52.

Cameron because he wants the EU referendum earlier rather than

:00:53.:00:56.

later, has decided to go with a half-baked deal according to the

:00:57.:00:59.

Euro-sceptics whereby he would take away benefits from some workers, but

:01:00.:01:03.

probably not enough to satisfy the right of his party. We have got

:01:04.:01:08.

Bernard Jenkins up in arms saying you only need an emergency brake if

:01:09.:01:12.

you have lost control. A famous Tory red flag. And I think that's going

:01:13.:01:16.

to be his problem. It is convincing the right that he is going to do

:01:17.:01:20.

enough to satisfy them and bring them on board. The idea is you would

:01:21.:01:24.

stop having to pay welfare payments to migrants if you are your welfare

:01:25.:01:29.

system was under exceptional strain which begs the question what does

:01:30.:01:39.

exceptional strain cons institute? What we have been, what one of the

:01:40.:01:42.

things that has come up repeatedly is when you look at European

:01:43.:01:51.

migrants to Britain, and a UCL economist did that research in 2014

:01:52.:01:58.

and they found actually EU migrants were, we benefited, the UK benefited

:01:59.:02:04.

?20 billion from them coming here rather than them taking this, put

:02:05.:02:08.

ago pressure on our benefit system. This is the other way around. It

:02:09.:02:12.

looked as if David Cameron wasn't going to get any compromises at all.

:02:13.:02:16.

He will argue, surely, it is quite significant. It is something to

:02:17.:02:25.

bring back to the table. What has he achieved? Well, he got some

:02:26.:02:30.

compromise, hasn't he? It was told he had to have if it was to be

:02:31.:02:37.

regarded as reforms. It only affects 20% of those coming to Britain from

:02:38.:02:42.

the EU. I know neither of you are convinced. Let's move on. The I, the

:02:43.:02:48.

Zika virus spreading ex-employee civil. That has gone from naught to

:02:49.:02:57.

very high. Mothers were reporting Zika a while ago and their doctors

:02:58.:03:02.

weren't interested and suddenly it is headline news. Suddenly we are

:03:03.:03:08.

hearing about it. My mother is a doctor and she has been going on

:03:09.:03:13.

about it for months. I hear it first from her and suddenly it is on the

:03:14.:03:19.

front pages months later. With one of the additional issues that Brazil

:03:20.:03:22.

faces, but they are warning it will spread across the Americas and there

:03:23.:03:25.

is only two parts of the Americas that don't have the mosquito which

:03:26.:03:30.

are Canada and Chile, so we are talking a whole, enormous area, this

:03:31.:03:37.

could spread across, but Brazil have got the Rio Olympics coming up

:03:38.:03:41.

later. It could scare people, couldn't it? But, they're saying

:03:42.:03:46.

they are trying to clear standing water, which is where, in urban

:03:47.:03:52.

areas in particular where the particular mosquitos congregate, it

:03:53.:03:56.

is an enormous job when you think of the size of the country of Brazil

:03:57.:03:59.

and the number of poor urban dwellings. The other thing is the

:04:00.:04:03.

vaccine is something, if they can ork out how this stuff works. There

:04:04.:04:08.

is not a cause or link, they suspect there is and the number of babies

:04:09.:04:15.

born with problems is 4,000. It is a small amount, but they are concerned

:04:16.:04:21.

that should that spread, the spread with mosquitos, you can see tens of

:04:22.:04:24.

thousands of babies affected. The Guardian, we like your front page

:04:25.:04:29.

tonight. It is an excellent newspaper. Tonight it is. EU to step

:04:30.:04:38.

in over Google tax deal row. George Osborne has been saying this ?130

:04:39.:04:44.

million in back tax from Google is a success, but the EU might not agree?

:04:45.:04:48.

Yeah, it is interesting. Because he hasn't been backed by David Cameron,

:04:49.:04:53.

Number Ten refused to repeat his massive success or major success

:04:54.:04:57.

claim and it is interesting that Europe has decided to take this on

:04:58.:05:02.

because you will see the Government hit by the Public Accounts Committee

:05:03.:05:06.

which will bring out the HMRC officials and ask them why they did

:05:07.:05:09.

the deal and the European Commission which has already in a couple of

:05:10.:05:16.

instances ruled on lawful state aid with a couple of countries. George

:05:17.:05:19.

Osborne finds himself in a difficult position with our allies. That's

:05:20.:05:22.

probably not where he wants to be given he wants to lead the Tory

:05:23.:05:26.

Party. The EU is investigating other arrangements that other companies

:05:27.:05:29.

have with other countries too? Yes, they have got a list here and you

:05:30.:05:33.

mentioned Fiat and there is a settlement between Starbucks and the

:05:34.:05:36.

Netherlands and one of the big things is we don't know enough

:05:37.:05:40.

details what is going on. The conversations go on in rooms, we

:05:41.:05:44.

never hear about what has been said between Government and the companies

:05:45.:05:48.

involved and there is no transparency about it and then yes,

:05:49.:05:53.

of course, they quote that effective tax rate that they believe Google

:05:54.:06:00.

ended up with about 3%. What would everyone want them to pay? A lot of

:06:01.:06:06.

people would say if they pay the full amount of Tory Party ration

:06:07.:06:12.

tax, it isn't the right amount? If a big company has a tax rate of 3%,

:06:13.:06:17.

they have sales of ?4.6 billion. They have ?1 billion in profit. We

:06:18.:06:21.

don't know what's tax and what's not, do we? In the public's mind, ?1

:06:22.:06:27.

billion worth of profit, a couple million a year, please, that's easy

:06:28.:06:32.

maths for the ordinary Joe. We don't know the detail. Let us look at The

:06:33.:06:38.

Telegraph, roads will not fall, this is an exclusive, the paper says,

:06:39.:06:48.

cash crisis forces Orial College who to defy students who wanted the

:06:49.:06:53.

controversial statue to topple. Donors said you are not having my

:06:54.:06:57.

money if you make a decision like this. Money really talks in this

:06:58.:07:06.

instance and the governing body of Oriel College has ruled it being

:07:07.:07:11.

taken out. They were supposed to have a consul station on it and what

:07:12.:07:14.

happened now is, well, what The Telegraph are saying is that they

:07:15.:07:21.

claim, the people who were going to donate, lots of these donations from

:07:22.:07:26.

wills and they are going to pull their dough nations and there is a

:07:27.:07:30.

?100 million gift, that can't be that many people that could be, who

:07:31.:07:36.

could be leaving that kind of sum in a will. A legacy to be in excess of

:07:37.:07:42.

?100 million and that's a staggering sum and as a result of this row over

:07:43.:07:46.

pulling down the statue, that could mean that that goes and that's why

:07:47.:07:51.

they have ruled it out. A group of student activists who didn't like

:07:52.:07:55.

the Cecil Rhodes figure being there, said it should be removed because he

:07:56.:08:02.

exemptified an imperialist and a racist. It roplted a wider

:08:03.:08:08.

discussion about free speech in -- prompted a wider discussion about

:08:09.:08:15.

free speech? It is whether the public, I suppose, should be

:08:16.:08:19.

colonized by people we don't particularly like. They talk about

:08:20.:08:24.

the prospective we have now? Do we impose or morality on the past? My

:08:25.:08:28.

feeling is, it depends what sort of organisation you want to be, a

:08:29.:08:34.

forward facing organisation perhaps wouldn't do this, but Oriel might

:08:35.:08:46.

like one foot in the past. The Express, Barbie gets a makeover

:08:47.:08:53.

and she is adding extra curves to broaden appeal to girlsful they are

:08:54.:09:00.

quite slinky. It is better. I did look up Barbie's proportions and

:09:01.:09:03.

this picture does seem to show this. Her waist is smaller than her head

:09:04.:09:07.

and she wouldn't have room for a full liver. She would only be able

:09:08.:09:11.

to fit half a liver and wouldn't have a full set of intestines. She

:09:12.:09:16.

wouldn't be a healthy woman and there is a claim she would have to

:09:17.:09:20.

walk around on all fours because were legs are so slim. What I'm

:09:21.:09:29.

holding out is for Ken. The thing that strikes me, no matter what

:09:30.:09:37.

their skin colour, they have Caucasian features. I'm glad she is

:09:38.:09:43.

catching up with reality, I suppose. Dad bod Ken, what would he look

:09:44.:09:54.

like? Moobs, mightn't he? Yes. You're struggling with this story.

:09:55.:09:57.

As somebody who works for the Guardian. I'm glad she is getting a

:09:58.:10:04.

PC makeover. I remember it well from Toy Story 3. I can't say much about

:10:05.:10:13.

Barbie's internal dimensions. She had 180 careers and she doing all

:10:14.:10:17.

those careers whilst walking around on all fours. Barbie's body was

:10:18.:10:25.

never designed to be realistic, she was designed for girls to easily

:10:26.:10:34.

dress and undress. We have had a statement from Oriel College saying

:10:35.:10:37.

they will not remove the statue or the plaque. You can see more on

:10:38.:10:41.

their website. We will be back with the papers

:10:42.:10:43.

again at 11.30pm. You'll both be back at 11.30pm

:10:44.:10:45.

for another look at the stories
