second leg will be an uphill struggle in berry-macro we will also

:00:00.:00:00.

-- and uphill struggle. We will also have more on the rugby and tennis.

:00:00.:00:10.

That at 10:45pm. Welcome to our look at the papers.

:00:11.:00:35.

Let us begin with the front pages. Osborne's council tax bombshell is

:00:36.:00:40.

where we will begin. It is on the The I. It says millions will be hit

:00:41.:00:46.

after the Chancellor changes rules. We don't have a lot of detail. We

:00:47.:00:50.

don't, but the thing we have to note is that this government has two

:00:51.:01:01.

decide whether or not to raise the covers by revaluing our homes or

:01:02.:01:14.

not. Will it be a rebranding of properties? I can't see a

:01:15.:01:17.

revaluation happening. Note government would be crazy to do

:01:18.:01:23.

that. There may be extra bands added on top, particularly in London where

:01:24.:01:29.

homes are valued so highly. There is this idea that Osborne might remove

:01:30.:01:34.

the cap that exist on councils for raising council tax. That would

:01:35.:01:39.

allow him to put the blame for the rises onto the councils themselves.

:01:40.:01:46.

But nobody wants to see their services reduced, but nobody likes

:01:47.:01:51.

having to pay more for them. At the moment there is a double squeeze.

:01:52.:01:54.

Libraries shouting, schools that need to be built, the cost of

:01:55.:01:59.

elderly care. This money has to come from somewhere and it looks like

:02:00.:02:03.

taxing people through their front door is going to be the way forward.

:02:04.:02:08.

Looking at it politically it is interesting. This was a real

:02:09.:02:12.

flagship policy for the government to hold down council tax. They were

:02:13.:02:21.

saying they were helping of working families by holding council tax

:02:22.:02:30.

down. But they can't hold it down for ever. Ultimately, it is a real

:02:31.:02:36.

terms cut. Indeed, and when you look carefully at it, when you look at

:02:37.:02:40.

the issue of devolution, we hopefully have a mayor in

:02:41.:02:45.

Manchester. They will have a lot of money under their control and the

:02:46.:02:48.

ability to raise those finances at a local level will be the way forward.

:02:49.:02:52.

Let us look at the Guardian. Labour plan to borrow billions for

:02:53.:02:58.

investment. Maybe that is not quite the headline that the shadow

:02:59.:03:05.

chancellor was intending. He is promising iron discipline. Tell us

:03:06.:03:08.

what he is going to do. I like this story. It is one that has been

:03:09.:03:12.

bouncing around for months and months. They are talking about the

:03:13.:03:17.

new fiscal credibility wall. The basic substance of it is that they

:03:18.:03:23.

will borrow to invest, but they will balance the day-to-day budget. That

:03:24.:03:25.

is pretty much something John McDonald has been saying since

:03:26.:03:30.

October last year. There was a point when he said he was going to go with

:03:31.:03:36.

George Osborne's fiscal charter, to balance the entire budget. He backed

:03:37.:03:41.

away from it, causing confusion. He did then say he would balance the

:03:42.:03:45.

day-to-day budget. There is not too much more going forward, but what

:03:46.:03:50.

there is is a bit more bite to the office of budget responsibility in

:03:51.:03:55.

terms of policing his fiscal. Whether that will come through,

:03:56.:03:57.

whether it is enough to convince people that there is credibility now

:03:58.:04:06.

is another question. Labour had a fiscal edibility problem under Ed

:04:07.:04:11.

Miliband. Labour's problem goes further than that. They are still

:04:12.:04:14.

trying to deal with this one bit, but they need to deal with robbers

:04:15.:04:21.

of credibility before people think about the fiscal policies. But as

:04:22.:04:27.

the Chancellor this is what he will concentrate on and it is an issue of

:04:28.:04:33.

trust. This is not for the country, it is for everyone in the party.

:04:34.:04:37.

People are lining up to take away his throne. Angela Eagle was

:04:38.:04:40.

sidelined and is now business secretary. Rachel Reid is tapping

:04:41.:04:46.

her fingernails in the back, and Dan Jarvis gave a wonderful talk today.

:04:47.:05:00.

People are lining up with knives to put in John 's back. There is talk

:05:01.:05:08.

of what economic policy Labour should have. John McDonald has been

:05:09.:05:14.

doing the beetle of the country, speaking to Labour Party members.

:05:15.:05:18.

People are saying he is gearing up for a potential future leadership

:05:19.:05:22.

bid himself. Perhaps this is in saying he has a control on the

:05:23.:05:29.

party's economic policies. Labour have not been on the front pages so

:05:30.:05:34.

much of late. It has been the European Union and the

:05:35.:05:38.

Conservatives. In The Times, President Obama blames David Cameron

:05:39.:05:46.

for the mess left in Libya. This is the suggestion that David Cameron

:05:47.:05:49.

was distracted and should have done more in Libya. This is an amazing

:05:50.:05:55.

story. When you think about how relations are conducted between

:05:56.:05:58.

leaders of the UK and the US, for the president to come out, and not

:05:59.:06:04.

in and off the cuff way, but in an on record interview for an magazine,

:06:05.:06:08.

to make these comments same David Cameron was distracted and the UK

:06:09.:06:18.

was joined to be a free ride by not meeting is 2% defence budget, it is

:06:19.:06:24.

quite a big thing for him to do and you can get the feeling this is a

:06:25.:06:32.

president now who is liberated. The focus is on Trump and Hillary

:06:33.:06:36.

Clinton and he is just letting loose. I do understand the White

:06:37.:06:41.

House is making it clear that no, the special relationship is still

:06:42.:06:45.

intact, it is fine. It is not that special boat, after this. David

:06:46.:06:51.

Cameron was flanked by Nicolas Sarkozy talking about Libya, we are

:06:52.:06:55.

your friends will always be here for you and as soon as we expect

:06:56.:06:59.

democracy to fly, it flew away. There was that photo opportunity in

:07:00.:07:04.

Benghazi when they came as liberators and gave a speech two

:07:05.:07:17.

Libyans. But Lord Rifkind has said it is a bit of a cheek. We committed

:07:18.:07:27.

more of our military resources than the US did. And now we are seeing

:07:28.:07:32.

the fruits of this, are we not? We left the plug in Libya, but

:07:33.:07:37.

unfortunately it is an open door. At the time when the French and British

:07:38.:07:42.

intervened, there were senators, congressmen or in America who were

:07:43.:07:45.

pushing a banner to say we need to take the lead in this situation.

:07:46.:07:51.

This is where the world's police man should step in and make a mark, but

:07:52.:07:54.

he did not want to get involved at that time. He did not want to get in

:07:55.:08:03.

-- he did not want to put skin in the game. Perhaps they did get

:08:04.:08:05.

distracted afterwards. The NewDay. Surprised by that

:08:06.:08:16.

picture. I'm not sure. Breast cancer, beaten

:08:17.:08:22.

in 11 days. Are there details as to how? It is the combination of twin

:08:23.:08:31.

drugs. Herceptin, it carries a heavy load. And a new one that I cannot

:08:32.:08:38.

pronounce. What we do know, however is how many

:08:39.:08:43.

mothers, sisters, wives are challenged by breast cancer and how

:08:44.:08:46.

many families are torn apart by this. It is the whole idea now that

:08:47.:08:52.

we can have tailored drugs for each woman, for each family, no doubt,

:08:53.:08:58.

that she comes from, is embedded in, and attack this cancer in 11 days by

:08:59.:09:03.

using drugs we have in a different combination.

:09:04.:09:14.

Herceptin works on the surface of Ken Adam Scouse drugs and the other

:09:15.:09:19.

works beside the cell. I could not say hawker, hunter,

:09:20.:09:26.

earlier. It is a great break through. Cancer

:09:27.:09:30.

does attack young families, young lives. Grandmother, aunts, we have

:09:31.:09:37.

all been know. It is great to know if we are faced with it, there is a

:09:38.:09:41.

way forward. Finally, are the Camerons thinking

:09:42.:09:46.

of staying on at Number Ten? We know he is going? I think so. If that

:09:47.:09:51.

story was really what it was purporting to be it would be on the

:09:52.:09:55.

front page, rather than a question on the front page.

:09:56.:10:00.

So, what is the suggestion, he is leaving the option open to stay on

:10:01.:10:04.

as the MP, if that is the case, you could be the Prime Minister? You

:10:05.:10:10.

could be, Boris Johnson, Theresa May, in facts the entire party may

:10:11.:10:15.

have something to say about that. I think he may be house hunting. It

:10:16.:10:18.

is a play on words. We have a while to wait. That's it

:10:19.:10:27.

for the front pages. Sophia and Joe are back at 23. 30, to have another

:10:28.:10:34.

look at the headlines. Now it is time for

:10:35.:10:35.
