team pursuit. And, the news of Victoria Pendleton, former cyclist,

:00:00.:00:00.

who has won her first race as an amateur jockey.

:00:00.:00:17.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:18.:00:20.

With me are Emily Ashton, Buzzfeed's chief political

:00:21.:00:23.

correspondent, and Dan Bilefsky from the New York Times.

:00:24.:00:27.

The FT leads on claims made by the French economy minster that

:00:28.:00:29.

the migrant camp at Calais would re-locate to UK soil

:00:30.:00:32.

Sticking with the EU referendum, the i focuses on the row over statistics

:00:33.:00:40.

The remain camp are accused of using misleading data to support

:00:41.:00:46.

Among the stories picked up by the Telegraph, the paper points out

:00:47.:00:52.

that petrol prices have increased for the first time since the summer,

:00:53.:00:55.

The former England footballer Adam Johnson is pictured on the front of

:00:56.:01:02.

the Metro following his conviction for sexual activity with a child.

:01:03.:01:05.

The Guardian reports that the chief executive of Rolls Royce Motor Cars

:01:06.:01:07.

has written a letter to its staff in Britain, warning that their jobs

:01:08.:01:11.

could be threatened if the UK votes to leave the European Union.

:01:12.:01:16.

And the Mail leads on the dangers of online dating.

:01:17.:01:22.

It reports on a man who used dating websites to

:01:23.:01:24.

We will start with the Mirror. Go and say goodbye to your daughter,

:01:25.:01:45.

prison will mean he will not see her for some time. This is a man who was

:01:46.:01:49.

idolised around the country, indeed in many parts of the world, as a

:01:50.:01:53.

Sunderland and Manchester City footballer. He has been brought low

:01:54.:02:01.

some would say by ego. This shows a pathological sense of entitlement by

:02:02.:02:04.

someone who had it all, and had his whole career ahead of him. The fact

:02:05.:02:10.

that the girl had just turned 15, it is deeply depressing for her and her

:02:11.:02:18.

family, it is just beyond words. My vampire boot job headline juxtaposed

:02:19.:02:26.

with this story seems like an odd juxtaposition. This is a man as you

:02:27.:02:33.

say who had everything. He was hoping to see out the rest of his

:02:34.:02:36.

career playing in the US in the Major League Soccer over there. His

:02:37.:02:42.

career is over now, finished. This is a man earning ?60,000 a week, and

:02:43.:02:46.

he has just been told today that he should prepare for jail time. He

:02:47.:02:51.

could be facing up to ten years in prison. He has a baby daughter. What

:02:52.:02:58.

possessed him to do this? This girl's life ruined. Just a very sad

:02:59.:03:05.

story all around, a man who thought he was invincible, really, and could

:03:06.:03:11.

get away with anything. The Times also has this on the front page,

:03:12.:03:15.

talking about it from the perspective of Sunderland football

:03:16.:03:20.

club, which allowed him to play on, earning about ?3 million over

:03:21.:03:22.

several months, despite having these charges against him. Now the club

:03:23.:03:28.

faces questions. That is the front page on The Times. Club allowed

:03:29.:03:33.

paedophile football player to keep on playing. The allegation is that

:03:34.:03:38.

Adam Johnson admitted some kind of sexual activity with this child, we

:03:39.:03:42.

don't know what exactly, to the child. He had been suspended for a

:03:43.:03:48.

time but the club reinstated him, and that seems to be were a lot of

:03:49.:03:53.

the focus is now being centred, as far as the club's involvement is. It

:03:54.:04:02.

beggars belief that there is the premise of innocence until proven

:04:03.:04:04.

guilty, and someone has to respect that, but the moment that someone

:04:05.:04:08.

comes under this kind of scrutiny, it beggars belief that they would be

:04:09.:04:17.

able to play at all. The club have put out a lengthy statement tonight

:04:18.:04:20.

following these allegations, after Adam Johnson's conviction, and they

:04:21.:04:26.

are basically, over a couple of pages, making it clear that he was

:04:27.:04:32.

allowed to play on for the club before his trial, because executives

:04:33.:04:38.

were not aware of his guilty plea. They didn't know that until the

:04:39.:04:41.

trial began. They are saying that they did not, unlike what the Times

:04:42.:04:47.

is alleging, they did not allow a paedophile to keep playing for the

:04:48.:04:51.

club. Reports this evening are saying that fans in Sunderland are

:04:52.:04:56.

very angry about what is being suggested that has happened.

:04:57.:05:02.

Footballers are put on pedestals in this country when maybe they

:05:03.:05:06.

shouldn't be, and I think this statement... It needs to be next to

:05:07.:05:16.

the story on the Times. We don't know when sentencing will be, it

:05:17.:05:20.

could be at the end of the week, but it could be anything from 5-10

:05:21.:05:25.

years. Let's move on to the Independent.

:05:26.:05:34.

Super Tuesday results mean a Donald Trump presidency is suddenly a

:05:35.:05:41.

serious prospect. The real estate billionaire faces toughest enemy

:05:42.:05:46.

yet, his party's furious establishment. The polls make

:05:47.:05:51.

Hillary Clinton the favourite, but her polarisation of the electorate

:05:52.:05:56.

means that a tight race is likely. Up until now, the establishment has

:05:57.:06:15.

been in denial about the hair apparent. Hillary Clinton is

:06:16.:06:23.

considered to be scripted, and she is going up against Donald Trump,

:06:24.:06:27.

who is this shooting from the hip circus performer. Clown perhaps?

:06:28.:06:40.

Perhaps. There will be a run-off. She will call him a dangerous

:06:41.:06:45.

renegade who is not qualified to be commander-in-chief. He will bring up

:06:46.:06:51.

the e-mails and the Benghazi issues, and it will be fierce. Hillary

:06:52.:07:00.

Clinton will probably have the overwhelming support of her party if

:07:01.:07:03.

she wins the nomination. What Donald Trump will not have is that. He is

:07:04.:07:11.

hated as much by Republicans as he is by Democrats. It is incredible.

:07:12.:07:15.

Didn't he wants lean towards the Democrats? Here's a left it on

:07:16.:07:28.

healthcare and various things. Here's a political chameleon, and he

:07:29.:07:33.

is appealing to these angry, working-class white men across

:07:34.:07:39.

America, but he comes from a 1%. Reading about Republican strategists

:07:40.:07:51.

desperately trying to predict this, trying to get rid of Donald Trump,

:07:52.:07:54.

and the Democrats are trying to do the same thing. He is a Teflon

:07:55.:07:59.

candidate who is not going anywhere. He has been getting less

:08:00.:08:06.

than 35% of the vote. There is the possibility that he might not get

:08:07.:08:09.

all the delegates he needs by the time they reach the convention. If

:08:10.:08:14.

that is the case, do you think the Republican hierarchy might try to

:08:15.:08:20.

hijack the nomination and say, you haven't got the delegations, we are

:08:21.:08:25.

putting forward Marco Rubio, for whoever they see fit. Marco Rubio

:08:26.:08:37.

one 1 state, Ted Cruz appears to appeal to the evangelical

:08:38.:08:51.

electorate. Mitt Romney? Who? A lot of people are saying that they are

:08:52.:08:56.

not... His roommate from college, Ted Cruz's, said he is not voting

:08:57.:09:05.

for just because doesn't like him. A taxi driver told him that he liked

:09:06.:09:08.

Jeremy Corbyn and he liked Donald Trump, and it is because they are

:09:09.:09:15.

different to the ordinary politicians. There is no paper trail

:09:16.:09:19.

of working in government. No experience. He is a businessman and

:09:20.:09:25.

reality TV star. Some are arguing that he made all his money simply

:09:26.:09:29.

because house prices have gone up, property prices have gone up. That

:09:30.:09:32.

hasn't actually been any involvement. But you are right, he

:09:33.:09:38.

has tapped into a section of the American population, and Jeremy

:09:39.:09:41.

Corbyn has done the same, who have seen their wages flat line since the

:09:42.:09:48.

1970s. He has seen these people who feel that they have been cut out of

:09:49.:09:53.

a burgeoning middle class. They have been put to one side, and Donald

:09:54.:09:59.

Trump has tapped into that. And they feel that ordinary politicians don't

:10:00.:10:02.

get it, they don't understand the real world. People like antipolitics

:10:03.:10:06.

politicians. This is not only happening in the US, it has been

:10:07.:10:10.

happening in France, with Jeremy Corbyn in this country. Also in

:10:11.:10:16.

Spain. This is an interesting era, the ear of the Islamic State. People

:10:17.:10:22.

are angry and rebellious, and they think Donald Trump has read the move

:10:23.:10:27.

of the American electorate and is playing it smartly. The question

:10:28.:10:32.

remains, when he goes before the entire electorate, could he win?

:10:33.:10:35.

Although polls can change, the latest polls show that Hillary will

:10:36.:10:39.

beat him, and that Bernie Sanders could beat him as well. That Bernie

:10:40.:10:43.

Sanders would beat him as well? If it was head-to-head between those

:10:44.:10:47.

two, based on the polls, and I must say it is early, but Bernie Sanders

:10:48.:10:55.

could beat him. Bernie Sanders is more of a socialist and Barack Obama

:10:56.:11:00.

ever was, and yet he could beat Donald Trump? Exactly. Donald Trump

:11:01.:11:08.

is the Frankenstein monster of the Republican Party. For years the

:11:09.:11:13.

party have been creating a message that the Democrats are bad, that

:11:14.:11:17.

Barack Obama is not really American, and they created this hatred, and it

:11:18.:11:25.

has ended with Donald Trump. We will end it on that. Let's move on to the

:11:26.:11:29.

Financial Times. French threat to end Kelley Deal and move the border

:11:30.:11:37.

if the UK quits the EU. This is about a warning that the border

:11:38.:11:42.

controls that you see in front at the moment will come to Britain if

:11:43.:11:46.

we leave the EU. There is a bilateral agreement with France, and

:11:47.:11:50.

they think that if we leave the EU that would be torn up. At the time

:11:51.:11:57.

everybody says that it was wrong, but now we have the French economy

:11:58.:11:59.

minister backing up David Cameron and saying, if Britain leads, you

:12:00.:12:04.

can deal with these migrant camps because the border controls will be

:12:05.:12:09.

on your LAN. This is a huge boost to David Cameron and to be in

:12:10.:12:12.

campaign. You think you really means it? We know the vast majority, in

:12:13.:12:21.

fact all of the 27 states, want Britain to stay in. This is a bit of

:12:22.:12:27.

leverage, isn't it? Science it could well be a bit of rhetoric, but that

:12:28.:12:31.

is the kind of thing that will resonate with people. The image of

:12:32.:12:39.

those camps being in England will resonate with people. The Tory party

:12:40.:12:49.

is arguing with itself, and many have somebody from outside, from

:12:50.:12:53.

France, saying that there are serious economic, strategic and

:12:54.:13:01.

security costs if Britain leads the EU. I think that might be something

:13:02.:13:06.

of a wake-up call. The Telegraph says wages will rise if we quit the

:13:07.:13:09.

EU. This is coming from the leader of the in campaign. This shows how

:13:10.:13:17.

archaeologically loaded the British media is, to the extent that

:13:18.:13:22.

depending on which newspaper you read you get a completely different

:13:23.:13:25.

narrative. That wouldn't be the case in America, what it? Of course

:13:26.:13:34.

not... But it is a lot more archaeologically loaded here. --

:13:35.:13:45.

ideological it. This is saying that if migrants don't come to this

:13:46.:13:48.

country, wages will go up. That will be that the business but arguably

:13:49.:13:52.

good for salary. It is a muddled message, but it shows how everything

:13:53.:13:59.

is being spun through whichever prism or camp you are in. It is very

:14:00.:14:03.

hard to balance that. What is it say about Lord Rose? He doesn't have a

:14:04.:14:16.

great track record on this. It was one long sentence at the hearing

:14:17.:14:23.

that the Telegraph have blown up. The Yes camp needs a colourful

:14:24.:14:33.

character to rest this on. You have Cameron, but he can't carry the

:14:34.:14:38.

whole debate by himself. A white-haired former captain of

:14:39.:14:43.

industry, very experienced and distinguished... Not so

:14:44.:14:47.

distinguished so far as far as this is concerned. Finally, ?100 million

:14:48.:14:52.

bill for licence fee dodgers, after the BBC closes loophole. At the

:14:53.:15:00.

moment, everyone pays their ?145 a year, but if you are only watching

:15:01.:15:03.

it on your computer or iPad or phone, then you don't have to pay

:15:04.:15:09.

it. So many people do now watch iPlayer, for example, I just watched

:15:10.:15:20.

Happy Valley on the iPlayer. Now those people will have to pay a

:15:21.:15:23.

licence fee as well. It is great for the BBC, it is something that plugs

:15:24.:15:33.

a funding gap. ?100 million is still a seventh the cost of having to fund

:15:34.:15:37.

license fees for Rover 75 is. That is something the government has

:15:38.:15:42.

imposed on the BBC. Swings and roundabouts. At a time of austerity

:15:43.:15:48.

and with the changing digital model as we are all trying to figure out

:15:49.:15:52.

how to stay afloat, we need all the money we can get. If people want

:15:53.:15:57.

other great quality broadcaster like the BBC, they have to pay for it. I

:15:58.:16:02.

am not saying anything else. It has been great having yuan, looking at

:16:03.:16:06.

some of the stories behind the headlines. Thank you. Much more

:16:07.:16:12.

coming up. Now, Sportsday. -- having you on.
