:00:10.:00:15.

ahead to what the the papers With me are the Evening Standard

columnist Mihir Bose and Assistant The Times leads on a payout made to

eight Republicans who had their convictions for being part

:00:23.:00:35.

of an IRA kidnap gang overturned. The Sun leads on the case of

Tareena Shakil, the first British woman found guilty

:00:39.:00:40.

of being a member of IS. A new theory that Alzheimer's may

have been transmitted between patients during particular types of

:00:50.:00:52.

surgery, that's the lead in the i. In the Telegraph,

the Head of the Army warns that fabricated legal claims made against

:01:02.:01:03.

the military may cause soldiers to The Daily Mail leads

:01:04.:01:06.

on comments made by a senior immigration judge that many migrants

:01:07.:01:10.

in Calais are not genuine refugees. Hospitals are being told

:01:11.:01:13.

by regulators to get rid of staff to rescue the NHS

:01:14.:01:15.

from financial crisis, And the Independent leads

:01:16.:01:17.

on comments by a World Health Organisation expert

:01:18.:01:21.

that the Zika virus could travel across the Atlantic to Africa,

:01:22.:01:23.

and even to parts of Europe. We will start with the Daily Mail.

:01:24.:01:36.

Migrants, a judge who dared to tell the truth. He says that many in

:01:37.:01:46.

Calais are not genuine refugees and they are after our benefits. This is

:01:47.:01:54.

a judge who is considering the application of four refugees who

:01:55.:01:59.

have siblings said to come to the country. He had granted them leave

:02:00.:02:05.

to come to this country, but there were special circumstances, the

:02:06.:02:10.

question of a possible mental disorder and disability. At the same

:02:11.:02:14.

time, he has used a judgement to say that not everyone in the Calais

:02:15.:02:20.

jungle can claim to be a refugee, that many are just migrants who see

:02:21.:02:23.

a better life in this country and they want to leave France and come

:02:24.:02:26.

to Britain, because Britain offers more. This raises the question, a

:02:27.:02:30.

lot of people have discussed this in this country. Many refugees a

:02:31.:02:37.

terrible situation, many are fleeing war, but many of the others are

:02:38.:02:40.

piggybacking on the back of them, if you like, hoping to come to this

:02:41.:02:45.

country because they think it offers a better life. Doesn't the

:02:46.:02:49.

accusation that they are after benefits that Britain offers get

:02:50.:02:56.

contradicted frequently by statistics that we net gain by

:02:57.:03:02.

having immigrants and refugees here? We are in the middle of the

:03:03.:03:06.

great philosophical argument as to whether refugees are phenomenal

:03:07.:03:08.

source of capital, talent and employment, which is what Germany

:03:09.:03:14.

thought when it brought in all those refugees, or as to whether they will

:03:15.:03:19.

just be a drain on our services. It will be a debate that runs right

:03:20.:03:22.

through to the referendum on EU membership. You are saying to me

:03:23.:03:26.

earlier that you thought that migrants would be the issue, the

:03:27.:03:31.

issue that decide the outcome of the vote. I think so. I think a lot of

:03:32.:03:35.

people feel that they are losing their country, and that fear will be

:03:36.:03:40.

played on by those who feel we should leave the EU. The question

:03:41.:03:46.

will be, we are part of the EU, free movement of labour, so any number of

:03:47.:03:49.

people from Europe can legitimately come. I think that will be a hard

:03:50.:03:55.

line. As far as refugees are concerned, we are facing a situation

:03:56.:03:58.

we have never faced before in Europe were a lot of refugees are coming

:03:59.:04:02.

from another culture, that is one thing, and normally they come backed

:04:03.:04:07.

by armies. These are poor and helpless refugees, most of them

:04:08.:04:11.

fleeing war. How does Europe, which claims to be a humanitarian

:04:12.:04:16.

continent, with great humanitarian traditions, how do we cope with

:04:17.:04:20.

that? What the judge has raised and this is what the paper has

:04:21.:04:25.

highlighted, in addition to those sterile are the refugees who are

:04:26.:04:29.

economic migrants and they should be judged by different standards. Also

:04:30.:04:39.

we are seeing great moral problems that Sweden is having, which was a

:04:40.:04:43.

very welcoming country and is now turning the other way. It is an

:04:44.:04:47.

extraordinary moment in our history, and people really want to

:04:48.:04:53.

be kind but they feel that maybe they look as if they are mugs. There

:04:54.:04:57.

are so many complex arguments rolling around. You mentioned the EU

:04:58.:05:03.

referendum. The Daily Express headline, pathetic EU deal in chaos.

:05:04.:05:08.

The PM is said to be under pressure, vowing to keep on fighting. Has a

:05:09.:05:14.

deal being done? I think there has just been a lot of discussions. This

:05:15.:05:19.

idea that the PM is saying that he wants to get rid of the idea that

:05:20.:05:22.

people get something for nothing, it is merely under deliberation, this

:05:23.:05:27.

idea. There has been no deal to put a brake on benefits for migrants at

:05:28.:05:36.

all. This is in the Express, which is a paper that will argue that we

:05:37.:05:39.

should leave the EU I think. We have had a feeling among those who want

:05:40.:05:44.

to leave in the past few weeks that the PM and some of the other

:05:45.:05:47.

ministers are already making the case for Europe, for us to stay, and

:05:48.:05:51.

if you like this is the backlash argument coming up and saying, there

:05:52.:05:55.

is no deal coming along, the PM can't get a deal good enough for us

:05:56.:05:59.

to stay. How many more months doing have obvious? I'm trying to count

:06:00.:06:06.

how many... How weary people will be the EU referendum by the time it

:06:07.:06:10.

comes around. This debate will be longer than the one about whether

:06:11.:06:14.

Louis van Gaal stays at Manchester United. Which we have all followed

:06:15.:06:19.

as closely as you have. If you are in the Yes camp or the No camp, stay

:06:20.:06:25.

or go, you have decided anyway, haven't you? I don't know whether

:06:26.:06:30.

anyone is truthful about their voting intentions following the

:06:31.:06:36.

general election. All these shy Tories, people who profess to great

:06:37.:06:41.

socialist ideas, but when they get their finger in a polling booth a

:06:42.:06:46.

vote Tory. I think there are quite a lot of people undecided, and I think

:06:47.:06:51.

that politicians and all these warring sides need to realise that

:06:52.:06:57.

the average person only turns on to politics for a few days around the

:06:58.:07:01.

time of an election. Just as they get into the booth. I think it

:07:02.:07:05.

depends on whether the younger people vote or not. If they do, we

:07:06.:07:10.

will stay in. If it is mainly the older people, I think we might well

:07:11.:07:15.

be out of the EU. That is my feeling, and I'm not a poster. Say

:07:16.:07:20.

that recording and we will play it back and see if you were right.

:07:21.:07:27.

Outrage pay-out for IRA gang. ?1.6 million reward as soldiers and the

:07:28.:07:34.

tombs suffer. These are convictions that were quashed because there was

:07:35.:07:39.

a secret agent involved in the defence were not told. There was

:07:40.:07:48.

someone involved in the ranks of the IRA, and this was not to disclosed,

:07:49.:07:56.

someone was kept kidnapped in the house. Now we come to the moment of

:07:57.:08:03.

compensation, which seems to be a roundabout ?200,000 each are these

:08:04.:08:07.

people, including a member of the IRA who famously said that power

:08:08.:08:12.

would be grabbed with a ballot box and the Armalite. I sense an awful

:08:13.:08:18.

lot of people will be quite disturbed and dismayed by this,

:08:19.:08:22.

thinking, what about the compensation for people who have had

:08:23.:08:26.

no redress for injuries from bombings, and also the ability of

:08:27.:08:34.

lawyers to get money for people who have been found guilty? They were

:08:35.:08:40.

only exploiting or following the rules, aren't they? They were

:08:41.:08:46.

following the rules. They have changed, and prove that the crime

:08:47.:08:49.

was not permitted, in order to overturn something. In this case,

:08:50.:08:55.

that information was not disclosed. I think this reflects the fact that

:08:56.:08:58.

we live in the compensation culture, that anybody who feels they have

:08:59.:09:03.

been a victim of justice claims condensation. The other question is,

:09:04.:09:09.

this has taken so long, some of these crimes were committed 25 years

:09:10.:09:17.

ago. It does raise the question as to why it has taken so long. And

:09:18.:09:25.

also about how much we know about the troubles, and what will always

:09:26.:09:30.

remain secret in the relationship between the British government and

:09:31.:09:34.

informants, and members of the IRA and informants. These Troubles will

:09:35.:09:42.

haunt us for many decades to come. It is almost within families, that

:09:43.:09:47.

is part of the problem. The Guardian has a picture of the daughter of

:09:48.:09:54.

Aravindan Balakrishnan, who has been jailed for 35 years. She was

:09:55.:09:56.

imprisoned by her father in south London for 30 years, and yet she

:09:57.:10:04.

says she has forgiven him. I think this is a remarkable story. She says

:10:05.:10:09.

she has forgiven her father, taking the advice of Nelson Mandela, who

:10:10.:10:14.

said if you leave prison with anger and bitterness, you are still in

:10:15.:10:17.

Britain. The fact that she has been willing to do that when the

:10:18.:10:20.

temptation must have been very great not to come out and talk about it at

:10:21.:10:27.

all, and also to come out and be very bitter about it... To think

:10:28.:10:32.

this was a father who told her you must never leave the house because

:10:33.:10:36.

there are fascist groups out there who are going to enslave you. And

:10:37.:10:43.

not just for a few months or years, but for such a length of time. To

:10:44.:10:48.

imagine the cruelty that this girl must have gone through. Apparently

:10:49.:10:52.

she is a very bright woman, who was terrified of crossing the road

:10:53.:10:59.

because she had never done it. She was told she would spontaneously

:11:00.:11:03.

combust if she stepped outside and threatened the rule of law. This is

:11:04.:11:07.

an important thing newspapers need to do to make people realise life is

:11:08.:11:14.

worth living. To hold a people and say if she can put that kind of past

:11:15.:11:19.

behind her, what can I do? I do think there will be a big emotional

:11:20.:11:24.

response to this. This is a terrible family story of how this could

:11:25.:11:28.

happen. And the amazing thing is that Balakrishnan still has some

:11:29.:11:32.

women who say he is right and that he is the victim. The FT, Japan

:11:33.:11:39.

enjoys the negative rates club, the move sparks surge in equities and

:11:40.:11:47.

bonds, fears rise over China and of slowdown. This feels like deja vu

:11:48.:11:53.

for Japan. This is an interesting headline because an awful lot of the

:11:54.:11:57.

18 million savers in Britain will read that headline and think, there

:11:58.:12:12.

have by the grace of God go where. People will think, what is the

:12:13.:12:15.

difference between what I am receiving and negative rates? This

:12:16.:12:20.

is Japan flailing around and trying to find ways of getting its economy

:12:21.:12:23.

moving again, to deal with the problems of the fact that they have

:12:24.:12:30.

a shrinking population, an ageing population, and to get people

:12:31.:12:34.

spending. Whether this will overcome the natural habits of thrift, I'm

:12:35.:12:42.

not sure. They must hope that if you have to pay to keep your money in

:12:43.:12:46.

the bank, you might as well go out and shop. Of course, whether it

:12:47.:12:51.

happens or not... Of course I think the implication of the FT leading on

:12:52.:12:55.

this story is that we might see it happening here. Probably not in this

:12:56.:12:59.

country, I don't think we need negative rates here. The ECB and the

:13:00.:13:05.

Bank of England have said they are willing to shift their policy

:13:06.:13:08.

stances as well, because they were heading towards rate rises. The

:13:09.:13:14.

final story on the FT, Apple build a virtual reality unit in search of

:13:15.:13:18.

the next tech platform. Who are they trying to outdo? An interesting

:13:19.:13:32.

story. We may be at Pete iPhone. -- peak. Many people have got an iPhone

:13:33.:13:39.

and maybe they didn't want one, so maybe people want to move onto

:13:40.:13:42.

something else. I am told people will put virtual reality goggles on

:13:43.:13:47.

to visualise pieces of furniture in their sitting room to see where they

:13:48.:13:51.

would go. That we may watch news stories that way, read a news story

:13:52.:13:58.

about Syria and then be in Syria. I put these on and I find it slightly

:13:59.:14:02.

unnerving, but Apple is a very interesting company. They are

:14:03.:14:06.

determined not to be left behind, they won't be the Sony of the 21st

:14:07.:14:11.

century. They got left behind in technological innovation and Apple

:14:12.:14:14.

is determined to be one step ahead. It sounds like they are trying to

:14:15.:14:18.

build on something Google did with Google Glass, and Apple tend to do

:14:19.:14:22.

that. They managed to perfect something that was invented by

:14:23.:14:26.

someone else. Apple have a good habit of coming late to the party

:14:27.:14:30.

and drinking the champagne. Or trying to do it. What an excellent

:14:31.:14:37.

idea! That is what we would all like to do, wouldn't we? Apple is at the

:14:38.:14:42.

vanguard of technology, I am so far behind... You are late adopter. I

:14:43.:14:50.

think this thing about virtual reality, many people will be having

:14:51.:14:56.

virtual reality goggles and then living their lives in our living

:14:57.:15:02.

room? Is that how it will be? Apparently the boss of Apple think

:15:03.:15:10.

it is really cool. What we can imagine the carpenters in here. That

:15:11.:15:15.

is it for the Papers tonight, lovely to see you both, thank you very

:15:16.:15:18.

much. Now, Sportsday.
