Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:19.:00:21.

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

:00:22.:00:25.

John Kampfner, Chief Executive of the Creative Industries Federation.

:00:26.:00:30.

The Daily Mail leads on the pressure facing the Met Police over the

:00:31.:00:33.

The Guardian has an interview with Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe

:00:34.:00:39.

who says officer are considering rethinking the way officers deal

:00:40.:00:41.

After today's industrial action the i front page claims

:00:42.:00:53.

the NHS is planning to "break striking doctors".

:00:54.:00:57.

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

:00:58.:01:00.

The paper says so-called 'misleading' supermarket offers

:01:01.:01:02.

could be scrapped by regulators within weeks.

:01:03.:01:03.

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

:01:04.:01:06.

that persistent global market turbulence could set back US growth.

:01:07.:01:11.

And the Mirror says tumble dryer firms face being sued

:01:12.:01:13.

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

:01:14.:01:23.

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

:01:24.:01:33.

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

:01:34.:01:38.

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

:01:39.:01:42.

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

:01:43.:01:46.

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

:01:47.:01:51.

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

:01:52.:02:02.

offering what. If it is straightforwardly that there can be

:02:03.:02:06.

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

:02:07.:02:12.

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

:02:13.:02:16.

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

:02:17.:02:26.

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

:02:27.:02:31.

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

:02:32.:02:34.

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

:02:35.:02:44.

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

:02:45.:02:49.

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

:02:50.:02:54.

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

:02:55.:03:01.

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

:03:02.:03:09.

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

:03:10.:03:21.

untrodden ground. Some doctors are threatening resignation if this

:03:22.:03:25.

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

:03:26.:03:28.

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

:03:29.:03:32.

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

:03:33.:03:37.

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

:03:38.:03:42.

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

:03:43.:03:51.

who has been talking about reviews into historical sex abuse

:03:52.:03:56.

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

:03:57.:04:02.

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

:04:03.:04:09.

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

:04:10.:04:13.

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

:04:14.:04:19.

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

:04:20.:04:30.

Savile outrages then led to an assumption that victims should

:04:31.:04:35.

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

:04:36.:04:40.

therefore anything of it says must necessarily be properly

:04:41.:04:46.

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

:04:47.:04:54.

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

:04:55.:05:01.

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

:05:02.:05:07.

sympathetically at a victim as a victim coming forward particularly

:05:08.:05:11.

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

:05:12.:05:17.

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

:05:18.:05:23.

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

:05:24.:05:26.

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

:05:27.:05:33.

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

:05:34.:05:47.

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

:05:48.:05:59.

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

:06:00.:06:08.

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

:06:09.:06:19.

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

:06:20.:06:25.

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

:06:26.:06:31.

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

:06:32.:06:39.

investigations, these are the same papers complaining following on from

:06:40.:06:46.

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

:06:47.:06:53.

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

:06:54.:06:57.

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

:06:58.:07:24.

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

:07:25.:07:31.

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

:07:32.:07:37.

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

:07:38.:07:46.

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

:07:47.:07:49.

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

:07:50.:07:54.

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

:07:55.:08:00.

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

:08:01.:08:12.

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

:08:13.:08:16.

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

:08:17.:08:24.

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

:08:25.:08:28.

Staying with the Guardian, an interesting picture of people rather

:08:29.:08:36.

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

:08:37.:08:44.

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

:08:45.:08:50.

Hampshire primary, and Hillary Clinton was swept aside by 22

:08:51.:08:57.

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

:08:58.:09:01.

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

:09:02.:09:05.

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

:09:06.:09:11.

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

:09:12.:09:16.

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

:09:17.:09:20.

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

:09:21.:09:27.

Carolina, where 50% of the Democratic primary voters are

:09:28.:09:31.

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

:09:32.:09:39.

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

:09:40.:09:44.

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

:09:45.:09:46.

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

:09:47.:09:55.

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

:09:56.:10:06.

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

:10:07.:10:12.

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

:10:13.:10:20.

particular redneck all radical state, I always thought the New

:10:21.:10:25.

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

:10:26.:10:32.

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

:10:33.:10:35.

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

:10:36.:10:47.

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

:10:48.:10:51.

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

:10:52.:11:03.

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

:11:04.:11:11.

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

:11:12.:11:19.

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

:11:20.:11:22.

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

:11:23.:11:30.

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

:11:31.:11:35.

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

:11:36.:11:40.

Chinese economy, and famously European economies, are not growing

:11:41.:11:44.

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

:11:45.:11:47.

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

:11:48.:11:56.

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

:11:57.:12:02.

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

:12:03.:12:08.

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

:12:09.:12:12.

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

:12:13.:12:17.

everything from the London housing market to short-term interest

:12:18.:12:21.

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

:12:22.:12:29.

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

:12:30.:12:36.

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

:12:37.:12:41.

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

:12:42.:12:51.

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

:12:52.:12:56.

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

:12:57.:13:04.

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

:13:05.:13:09.

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

:13:10.:13:15.

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

:13:16.:13:23.

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

:13:24.:13:26.

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

:13:27.:13:34.

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

:13:35.:13:40.

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

:13:41.:13:43.

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

:13:44.:13:48.

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

:13:49.:13:54.

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

:13:55.:14:02.

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

:14:03.:14:06.

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

:14:07.:14:14.

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

:14:15.:14:19.

hikes. The company that owns Liverpool announced new ticket

:14:20.:14:38.

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

:14:39.:14:45.

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

:14:46.:14:48.

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

:14:49.:14:55.

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

:14:56.:15:01.

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

:15:02.:15:07.

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

:15:08.:15:12.

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

:15:13.:15:21.

Liverpool fans at basically being fleeced on incredibly expensive,

:15:22.:15:27.

more expensive than the most expensive theatre tickets, for a

:15:28.:15:36.

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

:15:37.:15:42.

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

:15:43.:15:48.

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

:15:49.:15:52.

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

:15:53.:15:56.

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

:15:57.:16:00.

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

:16:01.:16:07.

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

:16:08.:16:13.

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

:16:14.:16:22.

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

:16:23.:16:27.

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

:16:28.:16:35.

Thank you for taking us through the stories. We have more sport on the

:16:36.:16:40.

way in Sportsday.
