deadline day closes and a rise in the rankings for Britain's new


tennis star Johanna Konta. Now the Papers.


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


With me are Caroline Frost, Entertainment Editor


of the Huffington Post and Parliamentary


Let's start with the Metro, which leads with the death of a British


tourist, who was killed on an elephant trek in Thailand. It seems


he was trampled by the animal and gored by its tusk. The I says pay


differences between doctors will have to be disclosed. The financial


times said Russia is planning to sell off national assets. The


Express has Sir Terry Wogan, who is fondly remembered. His last words to


his priest were, everything's going to be all right old boy. The Daily


Telegraph has the talks over the terms of Britain's membership of the


who is starring in war and peace for who is starring in war and peace for


the BBC. And she is there on the Times. The top story is on possible


cabinet disagreements on migration and The Guardian has the news that


brain damage in babies linked to the Zika virus now considered a global


health emergency. Tony, let's start with, I was going to say the EU


deal, but it is not a deal, it is a paper they will take to the other


27. But we will get some detail. Yes the Prime Minister seems to have


negotiated what the Daily Telegraph said a deal to allow Parliaments to


block Brussels law, but they say Britain will never be offered


anything that is just for them. So if a majority of Parliaments reject


legislation, then it doesn't mean the British Parliament at


Westminster will be able to do anything without the support of what


they call like-minded Parliaments. It sounds complicated. Yes, does


this mat tore you, a lot of my friends say it is detail that we


care about in the world of London and the rest of the country are


going with with their gut feeling. Does it matter what he comes back


with? Tony walks the corridors of power, all I think is come June when


it seems David Cameron will proceed in a stately fashion towards the


referendum, most people will think do I want to be in or out. Do I want


to be at the party or outside, I think it comes down to some sort of


gut reaction. Does it set the tenor of the debate? Not really. Looking


ahead to the referendum there is a part of the Prime Minister's party


who thinks it is a mant mime and -- pantomime and he was always going to


come to a deal and take whatever was offered and say we need to stay in.


Now, a significant number of euro skept tick MPs have -- sceptic MPs


given him the benefit of the doubt. The moment will be when he presents


it to his party. They are expecting something fundamental and things


like freedom of movement are central. Britain thinks of itself as


isolated from the other 27 and this has thrown it into relief. Anything


David Cameron gets will be available to every other nation. So the talk


of having an immediate emergency break allowing the Government to


deny migrants access to benefits, that means the British Government


will be able to ask the commission if they can put a break on benefits.


That emergency migration break will be available to other nations. We


focus on the in work benefits, a lot of people think about where are the


rules going to be made. And when we talk about where we stand outside


the eurozone and the Daily Telegraph touches on this, isn't there a


problem that if the French don't give us this red card, so we can


veto things that the eurozone club are agreeing, then in a sense, we


are subject to the rules they're making whether we are in or out.


That is the point, we can't do anything. British


Parliamentarians... Is it a real problem for the in camp. We are not


going to be able to make the rules. We can't. That is the great lie that


has been told over the last 30 years. When the Home Secretary said


I will reduce migration, there is nothing she can do to stop people


coming from other parts of Europe and if you're part of club you have


to accept the rules. This will be a rocky referendum. We have had two


referendums op changing the voting system and the Scottish referendum,


which appeared wildly out of control in the way people in London thought


they would and the establishment thought they would. It will be an


interesting and can I say... You know I do walk the corridors of pow


e but you get to meet celebrities. The red carpet is better. Did you


recognise Caroline that Tony presumed there would be a deal, look


at this cartoon, say its, I'm practicing my surprised face! When


the Prime Minister comes back with his EU deal. They staged I


perfectly, the media were covering them deep in thought and Donald Tusk


said we are not going to reach a deal and we had the stand off and


the nuts and wine on the table and guess what norm at noon we will hear


there has been a break through. Front-page of the FT a story that


I'm interested in, because I spent a lot of time in Carlisle before


Christmas talking to people affected by floods. I was sorry to hear how


many of them we visited didn't have insurance. It is a shock. In the


south we are incubate against this violence of nature that has been


happening in the north and Scotland and this will come as a huge relief


and hopefully palliative to some homes. The story is that because it


is become soing difficult to in-- it is becoming so difficult to insure


your home against natural disasters the government are saying we will


underwrite any insurance companies so it is possible to find insurance.


#i69 is the issue of reinsurance we talked about this and you have a


friend who works in reinsurance. Explain it, it is like... Bookies


laying off the bets. Yes in layman's terms it is insurance for an


insurance company. The Government have put together a scheme that is


backed by ?2 billion in annual protection. It means that the people


we have talked about who can't get insurance, insurance is based on low


risk and not risk. If your house has been flood, you won't want to give


them insurance. So the government has put in money and people will be


able to insure their homes in a normal way and the Government will


cap the payout so the Government will cap the pay. But this will


probably mean a ?10 premium on everyone's insurance. The Government


is putting money behind it, but it will probably lead to increased


premiums for everyone in the country, whether they live in a


flood plain or not. Compared to the loss you have seen ?10 does not seem


much. I think people would agree. The Guardian has the global health


emergency that has been declared by the World Health Organisation. I


watched the report and I was trying to put myself in the place of the


families, if your wife was pregnant or you were pregnant at the moment


you would be terrified. Yes, this is the stuff of horror movies. It is


not a disease that is in front of you. If a an adult person incurs it


you will be safe and healthy. It is the pregnant women who are


unknowingly incubating a disaster for their unborn child. That is the


Stur -- stuff of hoeror movies. This might affect people who are going to


see the Olympics. Yes, I wouldn't have expected the chief of staff to


say anything else, we are some months from the Olympics and they're


hoping what the WHO has done and declared it an emergency, that


triggers funding for research and prevention and Brazil is making a


show to the world, they have mobilised 220,000 troops and signed


new laws to give officials access to all buildings, so they can try and


get to deal with the issue where they find it. They trying to show


they're taking action ahead of Olympics. It would be inconceivable


if this got worse and they tried to hold a summer games in the city.


They're showing they're treating it like a developed country would and


Brazil is putting their economic woes behind them and this is meant


to be a success story and this has come at the worst time chl Now this


one on the front, pay gaps must be revealed and they have to disclose


the differences in wages paid to senior staff. Where is this coming


from. I misread it as work place pay gays. But it is basically the public


sector will have to disclose the differences between wages for senior


staff and other staff. There has been concern about this, so NHS


trust bosses getting big payouts and it is a measure that means public


sector organisations will have to disclose the differential. The


differential between how much the Chief Executive of a trust is being


paid and a nurse. I don't know if we can show people on the all the


front-pages there is one face and we are all familiar with her. Lily


James, we are watching her each Sunday. All of us. I am. I am


gripped by war and peace. She is just top. She is suddenly, ever are


season there is one lady and this season it is Lily. We are going to


talk about her in the next hour at 11.30. Thank you. Stay us with and


we will have more on the birth defects at 11. Now time for sports
