Wenger has discussed the end of the Premier League. That is all in


sports day and I will be back just after the papers.


Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers


With me are Phillipa Leighton-Jones of the Wall Street Journal and


The Independent leads on the EU-Turkey summit - describing


what it calls "a growing sense of dread" that any deal to return


The i says 40 migrants per day are trying to enter the UK.


The EU is planning to end Britain's control over its own asylum numbers


The Bank of England is preparing to pump billions


into the UK economy to stave off a collapse in the financial markets


in case there's a vote to leave the EU, that's in the Daily Telegraph.


The Daily Mail says that Downing Street phoned the Director


General of the British Chambers of Commerce, hours before he was


suspended over comments suggesting Britain should leave the EU.


The Times leads with figures suggesting


the taxpayer would save seventeen billion pounds if ministers scrapped


the planned new nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point.


The Guardian has an investigation showing what it calls


"the true extent of the financial crisis gripping young adults".


And the Metro leads on that positive drugs test


Just before we review of all that, but what about the events in


Brussels. A newspaper is quoting a spokesperson saying that the summit


with Turkey is over and a statement has been agreed, it does not


elaborate. And eight spokesperson is hailing and EU breakthrough with


Turkey at that summit. Still awaiting further details are


marketed would appear after further discussions that we brought news you


about an hour ago, but some sort of revolution has been arrived at.


Why don't you start, Hugo? It is easy to think this is all about the


politics and what Turkey once and what they will get, the invocations


30 European Union and all of these other things. You have this very


powerful image on the front page and it reminds us, but that is not what


it is about. This is what it means to be a refugee and to be an asylum


seeker and migrant. There are humans here and they are the people we are


talking about. If they are forced to return, and they suspect they will


be, violence may erupt in border camps. Because they will be so


desperate in their circumstances getting out the direction they


wanted to go and enforced to go back. As many of us would be.


They've spent their life savings making this journey to get as far as


they have and they have no money left. They are not going back and


they are doing some desperate measures. Some of them are holding


children overboard, holding knives and threatening to take action with


their own minds just because they are so desperate not to go back. And


the image of a boy being trapped and the board is being closed in the


Balkans, there is nowhere further for them to go. This sums it up. It


is worth remembering that the influx continues and people keep coming


through the winter, and of course as the weather starts getting better,


they are exporting a whole new wave of migrants which is why these talks


are happening now. I'm just looking at a couple of other lines coming


out of Brussels, they are talking about that the agreement has


finished. They are planning to discuss it again at a summit at the


17th of March, but it is not clear how much. Of course Turkey has been


using this to push its European Union a gender and push for more


access to Turkish citizens across-the-board as. Turkish is


using this fall political posturing and it will be interesting to see


what comes out of that. The stakes are high for Britain as well and


nothing would kill David Cameron's hopes of keeping us in the European


Union more soundly than Brussels are minding that the UK accepts more


people than it wants to. Let me stay with you and the Guardian front


page, and this is a reference to the refugee and migrant issue but it is


taking us to the UK. This is about people who made it through the


tunnel and what happened to them when they got here. It is talking


about a few hundred people but they were kept in a shared near the


tunnel for up to and over 24 hours and slept on a concrete floor in the


shared and did not get a chance to change out of their wet clothes,


given no food, and when asked for food they were given nine, and were


not given blankets. Many of them were dehydrated, had scabies and


diarrhoea. It is a smaller but people and that is all of the more


shocking. We can do more than that. I don't like to think we have that


kind of country. This is the Chief Inspector of prisons disclosing some


of the information that we are alluding to. 381 children, some of


them who are not accompanied via parent, and the soap terrify --


these were terrified children. I would not have expected this. A lot


of people reading this would not have expected that we treated


migrants like that and we can only hope that things will get better


than that. Going to the front of the Times we all mention 2-storey. -- to


-- two stories. This is the chaos about the referendum and the chaos


that has been coarse about the uncertainty about the possibility of


a Brexit. Banks trading partners are unsure about what is going on.


They're pumping money into the economy but they are offering banks


loans in returns the assets and more money than they normally would to


keep those banks solvent in case it is the threat of a run. There are


talks about this being an unprecedented move and this is an


unprecedented move. The Bank of England is putting in contingency


places in case people were going to come out about how they are going to


keep stability in the financial sector. The Governor of the Bank of


England will be asked about Brexit and he has been asked about Brexit


planning for a long time and now he can finally revealed some details. I


think this is not a sinister as much as the out will make it to be. It is


interesting the different takes the different newspapers have on the


same story. As far as the Telegraph is concerned this is an attempt to


scare people. Be afraid. Whereas the Times has the same story and saying


it will all be fine. And of course making references to the Scottish


Referendum. People may ask why was it so secretive, and the reason I


assume it was secret and public now, it was secret because there was some


turmoil and they would try to avoid that. Let us stay with the Times,


the nuclear deal that will save ?17 billion. There is a time when


controversy and disaster about where it will go about Britain's plan to


build a new generation nuclear power stations. These are essential to


keep the light on but to meet our carbon emission commitments. Is been


a it has been a controversial -- it has been a controversial deal. It


was struck when other forms were more expensive and nuclear power is


going to be more expensive. There are some suggestions that the deal


will fall apart. They lost their finance chief just a few days ago.


Things seem to be very much on the edge. The problem is that the


subsidies they been offered are three times the current electricity


price. This is not due to come online until 2025. Politically this


was a great deal for the UK and China and the relationship building


with France. Actually, economically it does not stack up. The government


did not know what it was doing and it is the worst deal I've ever seen,


said one energy consultant, while at the same time the politicians are


saying this is groundbreaking. The problem is with the EDF it has an


agenda. We don't save ?17 billion in the end because we have to spend


money getting the power if we don't spend it there. We can get it more


cheaply than it is suggested. The Financial Times is talking about


this as well with the United powers are lining. This is not just an


industry story, this goes right to the heart of government. This is


about written's flagship idea about keeping the lights on and combating


climate change. It is about the French premier energy company.


France has a better history with nuclear power and they have a huge


amount more than we do. Henceforth, build a nuclear power stations in a


more sensible way. Someone described this morning as British nuclear


power industry is a repeated active moon shots. We just go to the front


page story with reference to the climate change issue, really if you


do move away from nuclear power, it is argued, and to a different


alternative, it wouldn't not necessarily fulfil the climate


change agenda. And maybe there is long-term view is to be taken but in


the short-term, this may be an economic deal, but in the long-term


it pushes down nuclear agenda and it might get us to that same situation


with France where we are building sensible nuclear plants. Many ways


of looking at it. Let us finally just reflect what has happened to


Maria Sharapova. Obviously we have been covering this when it broke a


couple of hours ago. The Metro, judging by their headline, is not


very sympathetic. They are using the same time. The medicine she was


taking from 2006, prescribed by her family doctor and she does not say


she was taking it for sporting purposes as you says it is only just


been, six months ago I believe, been banned. She kept taking it and she


is now tested positive at the Australian Open. She gave a press


conference last night and people assumed she was about to announce


her retirement. Yes they did. This is good to have a big impact on her


career and what she is left of one. That is the point because we don't


understand but there is a ban starting on Saturday, and we don't


how long that will be for. She doesn't know how long I do. --


either. She does admit that there is accountability on her part. She did


open an e-mail that said that this substance was banned. She said I


held my hand up and that is my fault and I should have been more cautious


and careful. On that note, thank you both. Before we move onto other


matters we're going
