Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers


With me are Matt McAllester, editor in chief at Newsweek magazine and


John Kampfner, Chief Executive of the Creative Industries Federation.

After today's industrial action the i front page claims


the NHS is planning to "break striking doctors".


Multi-buy deals may be banned, is the Telegraph's headline.


The paper says so-called 'misleading' supermarket offers


could be scrapped by regulators within weeks.


The FT reports on the head of the Federal Reserve telling Congress


that persistent global market turbulence could set back US growth.


And the Mirror says tumble dryer firms face being sued


for millions of pounds over a spate of fires linked to faulty machines.


A real mix of stories. The NHS strike dominates a lot of the


papers, including the i. I suppose the latest development is kind of


expected, that there is now a rumour that the government will force


through the contracts. We were talking about this a few moments


ago. It is one of those stories were the two sides can't even agree on


the narratives. They can't agree on who is saying what and who is


offering what. If it is straightforwardly that there can be


a core salary in return for us eliminating the bonus you get


working unsociable hours, but the overall package is the same, at


least you have an idea of what they are talking about. I am increasingly


of the view that when you look at people working here in shops, so


many people do fleck Cialis, and the idea that that is somehow an affront


to your liberty I'd struggle to understand. -- flex hours. I look at


the reports of the 26,000 eligible junior doctors who would normally do


a typical shift signed up for duty today. I think that is what has


emboldened the government to at least threaten to push this through.


43% on the second such strike suggests that that number is going


to increase. If the deal falls through, the contract, we are on


untrodden ground. Some doctors are threatening resignation if this


happens, and it will be a victory legally and on paper for the


government, but it won't be a political victory. They don't want


to do this, it will be a lose lose situation. The two sides have forced


themselves down this final and nobody is happy about it. The


Guardian has lots of different lines coming from Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe,


who has been talking about reviews into historical sex abuse


allegations. The headline in the Guardian is that the Met signals a


shift in attitude to rate victims, and how claims are to be


investigated -- rape. This is the Met Commissioner writing a piece


talking about how the assumptions of the last few years, which arose from


the lamentable under reaction or non- reaction to decades of Jimmy


Savile outrages then led to an assumption that victims should


always be believed, just a categorical victim is believed, and


therefore anything of it says must necessarily be properly


investigated. Which then led to Leon Brittan allegations, and Lord


Bramall and others besides. He is now saying, Bernard Hogan-Howe is


now saying that we may be need to look at that again, and we look


sympathetically at a victim as a victim coming forward particularly


on historical allegations, but you don't necessarily assume that what


they are saying is correct. It is not just police, it is teachers,


friends, parents, they are always told that a victim feels they are


believed so they can come forward. I think after this we will be hearing


from victims' writes groups who will be extremely worried -- rights. I


think they will be feeling sold out. The headlines on the Mail and


the Sun are much less sympathetic. If the story in the Daily Mail is


correct, saying that former chief of defence officer was having breakfast


with his dying wife when police came into his home and searched all the


rooms. It is very graphic. It ends with no charges being levelled, and


these ongoing investigations, and in a few of those papers pretty gung-ho


investigations, these are the same papers complaining following on from


not just Jimmy Savile, but others. Either historically, or the whole


Lord Jana situation, or others who have been sent to prison. He feel


sorry for the police because they are damned if they do and damned if


they don't. Paul Lamb -- one person who had allegations levelled against


him, he has said that it has ruined their lives. I think the people who


have suffered because they haven't been believed when they are genuine


victims. That pain far outweighs what has happened to those who were


wrongly accused. That is not to travel on their lives, but for


decades and decades these people had not been able to come forward. Until


they are charged should they be named? Police deny that they have


been tipping off the media, but it comes from somewhere. The tactics


are reported is to encourage other people to come forward by leaking


the name early. It sounds like we need a review, and we might get one.


Staying with the Guardian, an interesting picture of people rather


than politicians. This is in America's political shift. This is


the extraordinary rise of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump in the New


Hampshire primary, and Hillary Clinton was swept aside by 22


percentage points. It is a huge gap. There is a lot of noise about


whether it is the beginning of the end for her when the presidency, let


alone the nomination, seemed within her grasp a few days ago. New


Hampshire and Iowa have a history of throwing up candidates like Pat


Buchanan a few years ago, he did superbly well. And Bernie Sanders


really threw everything into New Hampshire. He is heading to South


Carolina, where 50% of the Democratic primary voters are


African-American. Hillary Clinton historically does very well in the


African-American community. It is the beginning of a very long and


compensated story. It is a great story because we are seeing


antiestablishment, which we don't always see -- complicated. These are


new and unexpected faces for someone like this. In America, here in the


UK with Jeremy Corbyn, what is interesting in America is that it is


on the left and the right. I never thought New Hampshire was a


particular redneck all radical state, I always thought the New


England states were a bit more cerebral, but look at how well


Donald Trump has done! , licence plate in New Hampshire, it says live


free or die, so there is a history of libertarianism and individualism.


Whoever gets to the White House, the front page of the Financial Times.


This is about the economy and keeping America going. Bank shares


are tanking at the moment, stock markets are spiralling downwards.


Janet Yellen was thinking last year that there would be a rate rise, the


first in lots of years, 0.25%, but she announced then that this was


going to be part of a gradual series of rate rises through 2016 and


2017, and today already a whole series of indicators over the last


several weeks since New Year showing that the American economy, the


Chinese economy, and famously European economies, are not growing


anywhere near as fast as was predicted, and the idea of having to


raise rates in order to slow things down is looking to be a bit of a


mistake. Didn't be an announcement today in effect some of the trading


as well, which shows why we should care about this? It shows why we


should, and the interconnectedness of the global economy. The centre of


this story is China, and China's economy is what this impacting


everything from the London housing market to short-term interest


rates. The Daily Telegraph, one of its lead stories is that multi- buy


deals may be banned. This is the only part of grocery shopping I like


Mawhinney fear you are getting a bargain. These consumer stories sell


well on newsstands. I am a sucker for this kind of them. -- thing. Buy


one get one free, and you end up buying things just as the groups are


quoted here as saying, you end up buying stuff you don't want and end


up throwing some of it away. It is completely... Whenever it says 25%


or 40% off, you don't know from what. Their rights on special offers


where they are marked down, you can actually see the price. Is it the


2-for-1 that they describe as misleading? Do you know that that


price ever existed? It makes me happy thinking it did. The average


person takes 0.4 seconds to decide what to buy, and there is a simple


queue to this called the shopping list. If you go into the supermarket


with a shopping list and stick to it and don't look to the left and the


right then you will be fine. That is my top tip. Don't shop hungry, you


always end up buying what you want it, not what you need. Let's look at


the back page, which we don't usually do, the sport. This is a


particularly momentous story. The Mirror. Give us the background to


this. This follows the walkout on the weekend by fans over ticket


hikes. The company that owns Liverpool announced new ticket


prices for next season. The prices went up to ?77, which would take it


out of the range of many fans. I have been a Chelsea fan for the last


20 years and you see how football has taken itself away from the core


supporters, certainly Premier League football is all about TV rights,


maximising, crazy wages for an international galaxy of stars, and


what some clubs have done is often to keep a certain section of the


ground at cheaper rates so the real fans can still go. The fury among


Liverpool fans at basically being fleeced on incredibly expensive,


more expensive than the most expensive theatre tickets, for a


game of football... In Liverpool, where earnings are not as high as


they are in London... It seems a complete PR own goal. David Cameron


in Prime Minister's Questions was hardly rallying to the defence of


the Liverpool owners, and was intimating that he thought it wasn't


a good idea. So they back down. In some ways it is not just victory for


Liverpool fans for foot will fans. It takes it back to what football


should be about. It is about the fans. This is going to be maybe the


first scalp. You talk about Chelsea, there are other expensive tickets.


If you go to the Emirates to watch Arsenal you will pay more than that.


We have to leave it there. Thank you for taking us through the papers.
