president Donald Tusk have agreed to a second day of talks to try to

:00:00.:00:00.

thrash out proposed reforms. They met this evening at Downing Street

:00:00.:00:00.

but have not yet reached a deal. And the Islamic State has claimed

:00:00.:00:00.

responsibility for a string of bomb attacks at Syria's holiest Shia

:00:00.:00:07.

Muslim shrine, near Damascus. At least 50 people have been killed.

:00:08.:00:18.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be

:00:19.:00:21.

bringing us tomorrow. With me are bringing us tomorrow. With me are

:00:22.:00:23.

Joel Taylor. In a moment we may talk Joel Taylor. In a moment we may talk

:00:24.:00:31.

about Donald Trump, that could make one of our guests quite exercised(!)

:00:32.:00:37.

starting with the front pages, Terry Wogan is pictured on many of the

:00:38.:00:42.

front pages. Its press called the broadcaster a true national

:00:43.:00:46.

treasure. Independently with research which found the pay gap

:00:47.:00:50.

faced by black workers widens the more qualifications they obtain! The

:00:51.:00:54.

Times says the Prime Minister's hopes of securing an EU

:00:55.:00:56.

renegotiation are hanging by a thread after the president of the

:00:57.:00:59.

European Council walked out of Downing Street, declaring "no deal".

:01:00.:01:02.

The Guardian reports that an estimated 800,000 people have

:01:03.:01:03.

dropped off the electoral register since the government introduced

:01:04.:01:04.

changes to the system. The Mail says Gps have voted to stop

:01:05.:01:17.

looking after hundreds of thousands of care home residents. We will of

:01:18.:01:21.

course look at how the newspapers are reporting the life of Sir Terry

:01:22.:01:29.

Wogan, who has died at the age of 77, but we will begin with another

:01:30.:01:32.

story, on the front of the Independent. The pay gap.

:01:33.:01:43.

It seems the harder they work, the more qualifications they get, the no

:01:44.:01:51.

better off they are. I am a chance at a university, we have the largest

:01:52.:01:57.

ethnic winner at intake in the country, if not, we are pretty high

:01:58.:02:01.

up there, and I know that this is true, what is interesting to me, why

:02:02.:02:07.

is this now just been discovered, I'm interested in that. It is

:02:08.:02:12.

welcome that the government is interested in that, that they want

:02:13.:02:14.

to do something, that they have appointed David Lambie, Labour MP,

:02:15.:02:24.

but it is an interesting policy in the appearance. -- incoherence. --

:02:25.:02:32.

David Lammy. This is endemic and long-standing and I do not know how

:02:33.:02:35.

they will proceed with this. How did they come to discover it now? Does

:02:36.:02:40.

this article explain why it is happening? Not really, what it does

:02:41.:02:45.

not have is a reaction from Oxford University which today said it did

:02:46.:02:50.

not see the need for legislation. The comment from Oxford University

:02:51.:02:55.

talked about big problems, more ingrained problems, within society

:02:56.:02:59.

that needed to be tackled. It is extraordinary the idea that black

:03:00.:03:04.

graduates are leaving university and earning 23% less, it is not

:03:05.:03:10.

something we have only just discovered, why is it coming up now?

:03:11.:03:13.

It is very laudable that it has been done but it could have been

:03:14.:03:18.

investigated 20 years ago. Five years ago, the government is saying

:03:19.:03:26.

that the government was in, listen but they were still the ruling

:03:27.:03:28.

party, why has it not been picked up then? I'm not saying, don't do it,

:03:29.:03:34.

it is an important thing, but sit back and look at the policy

:03:35.:03:38.

incoherence around it, and Oxford is right, there is a landscape that

:03:39.:03:42.

explains this. The government is not tackling the landscape. From this

:03:43.:03:47.

article it seems it is not just educational edge of -- educational

:03:48.:03:54.

institutions, it is throughout life. This has been going on for ages,

:03:55.:03:58.

this needs policy coherence, to be looked at across the board. In this

:03:59.:04:04.

piece anyway I do not see what the government is doing... It almost

:04:05.:04:07.

sounds like somebody has an idea in the government that this is what

:04:08.:04:12.

they want to tackle, and David Cameron is going to tackle it. This

:04:13.:04:18.

is a great thing to do. But it is a long landscape of prejudice and

:04:19.:04:22.

discrimination that we need to look at. And yet we have had

:04:23.:04:26.

anti-discrimination legislation for almost as long as I have been

:04:27.:04:31.

around. Clearly different problems with different communities.

:04:32.:04:43.

I grew up in an era of quotas, they work. If the government is not

:04:44.:04:52.

interested in saying to business and universities, you have to do this,

:04:53.:04:57.

then I don't see how this is going to work. We are going to look at

:04:58.:05:03.

Donald Trump, featuring on the top of the newspaper, brace

:05:04.:05:09.

yourselves... America starts to give its verdict. John, Donald Trump...

:05:10.:05:15.

Do you have an opinion? I have quite a lot of views on Donald Trump! We

:05:16.:05:20.

can sort of sit here in relative safety and watch the circus, the

:05:21.:05:24.

pantomime, surrounding him, but we are now getting to a stage where it

:05:25.:05:28.

might be the case that he seems to be the favourite and he could be

:05:29.:05:33.

picked be the Republican candidate. I struggled to believe... First, it

:05:34.:05:37.

is going to be hard to see him as the candidate but it is impossible

:05:38.:05:40.

to consider that he would defeat Hillary Clinton in a presidential

:05:41.:05:46.

election. Something the other day that I was reading said that what we

:05:47.:05:51.

do seem to realise, what seems to happen, American voters pick

:05:52.:05:54.

something that is different from the outgoing president, Donald Trump is

:05:55.:05:57.

certainly very different from Barack Obama. This is actually normal

:05:58.:06:04.

service at this point of the electoral cycle, in the United

:06:05.:06:09.

States of America, we get... It is a very tactile, very crazy kind of

:06:10.:06:18.

point in the American cycle. He is a television star, a reality

:06:19.:06:22.

television star, this is part of his picture. If he does not win Iowa

:06:23.:06:26.

tomorrow, it is his whole deal is about, I win, if he does not, then

:06:27.:06:32.

he is in trouble. The Donald Trump Mountain, the mountain he has two

:06:33.:06:36.

climb to be even the nominee of the Republican Party, which is the only

:06:37.:06:42.

possibility has to be the president, is massive. A lot of people feel

:06:43.:06:47.

that he says something to them that nobody else says? It has a lot of

:06:48.:06:50.

primaries to go through, he could drop off the scale very easily.

:06:51.:07:02.

He's not from the political class. I know this is a foolish thing to do

:07:03.:07:08.

at this point, but it isn't happening, he will not be president,

:07:09.:07:12.

but what is happening is that he is putting on the table, in legitimate

:07:13.:07:17.

discourse, stuff you hear after midnight on talk radio! That is what

:07:18.:07:22.

is going on. Amistad has 24 hours to reach a deal with Europe, talks

:07:23.:07:26.

broken off as Brussels digs in on migrants... On many occasions you

:07:27.:07:31.

would like to be a fly on the wall, tonight is one of them, probably. I

:07:32.:07:36.

wonder if there is going to be any meaningful deal. I am not a

:07:37.:07:42.

Eurosceptic but if I was one, I would be, as we say in Chicago,

:07:43.:07:48.

hopping mad! I do not know what David Cameron is doing, if he is

:07:49.:07:52.

trying to get a deal about immigration, migration... It is what

:07:53.:07:58.

the European Union is... No wonder Donald Tusk walked out. If the free

:07:59.:08:03.

movement of workers is going to be restricted... That breaks up the

:08:04.:08:13.

idea of European Union! It is about access to in work benefits. That is

:08:14.:08:19.

dissemination. It still breaks down the idea of what the union is,

:08:20.:08:23.

because it is not happening in France, and... I'm not saying it is

:08:24.:08:27.

right or wrong but it goes to the heart of what it is. Allegedly it

:08:28.:08:30.

would be tricky for people over here. Because yet again, it would be

:08:31.:08:35.

young people who are most affected by a benefit saving. Certainly

:08:36.:08:40.

sounds like he has quite a long way to go with these negotiations, there

:08:41.:08:45.

are still officials in Downing Street trying to hammer out an

:08:46.:08:49.

agreement, the only left after 90 minutes. Really that is not... They

:08:50.:08:54.

had a three course meal to get through, apart from anything else!

:08:55.:08:58.

Perhaps they were talking with their mouths full. This great idea, the

:08:59.:09:11.

emergency brake of the welfare system, creaking... Creaking under

:09:12.:09:14.

the claimants. That would appeal to more than just Britain. But if it

:09:15.:09:23.

does... The promised and Donald Tusk have got to get it organised. I'm

:09:24.:09:27.

not saying it is wrong but I am saying if I were a Eurosceptic... I

:09:28.:09:28.

would be very angry. 800,000 people disappear from the

:09:29.:09:42.

voter list. There was prediction that this would

:09:43.:09:59.

lead to a large fall in voter members, now we see and is to make

:10:00.:10:03.

it 800,000 people knocked off the electoral register. The government

:10:04.:10:10.

does not seem to be that concern, because any entries removed will be

:10:11.:10:15.

people who moved house, died, never existed...! Does not sound like they

:10:16.:10:20.

are convinced of these figures. There is an interesting scheme at

:10:21.:10:22.

Sheffield University, they talk about enrolment onto the voter

:10:23.:10:27.

registration as they come into university. Mysteriously, this, in

:10:28.:10:37.

some way, affects labour, quite strangely, and that is what they are

:10:38.:10:40.

most concerned about, this affects their potential voters. It is not

:10:41.:10:47.

designed to effect any one particular party? It is pretty

:10:48.:10:59.

strange, it was not in any kind of manifesto. It has been talked about

:11:00.:11:04.

for a while. There have been concerns in certain constituencies.

:11:05.:11:14.

This is seen as a way to stop electoral fraud, but if it has

:11:15.:11:19.

knocked of 800,000 genuine people, that is obviously a huge number of

:11:20.:11:23.

voters, most of whom will be students. More likely to be voting

:11:24.:11:28.

Labour... And it is Labour who are raising this. There is always a

:11:29.:11:35.

concern about getting young people involved in votes, in elections, and

:11:36.:11:42.

if... This... Talking about policy incoherence, which has to do with

:11:43.:11:48.

one hand hoping to make the demographic more inclusive, more

:11:49.:11:51.

able to function in society, taking another young demographic and

:11:52.:11:57.

carving them out of society. And some of that demographic contains a

:11:58.:12:01.

demographic they are trying to help! I do not see the clearance.

:12:02.:12:22.

The affection towards him is obvious. We have letters pages that

:12:23.:12:46.

show that. He could present any thing... Blankety Blank, for

:12:47.:13:01.

instance... Jeremy Vine said, you have 10 million listeners, Terry

:13:02.:13:07.

Wogan replied... I have only got one... (!) and that one person, you

:13:08.:13:12.

could hear it in his voice... It is the way that Frank Sinatra sang, to

:13:13.:13:17.

be honest, he always sounded like he was singing to you, and Terry Wogan

:13:18.:13:24.

sang the same way, he spoke the same way. I remember being told, you are

:13:25.:13:28.

only ever broadcast into one person at a time because we listen as

:13:29.:13:32.

individuals. Knowing that and doing it... Very difficult... Relaxing

:13:33.:13:42.

into it, turning up five minutes before he was an error. He will be

:13:43.:13:46.

greatly missed. Thank you very much rejoining us. -- thank you very much

:13:47.:13:56.

for joining us. Coming up, at 11pm, more on the life and career of

:13:57.:13:59.

veteran broadcaster Terry Wogan, who has died at the age of 77. Coming up
