The Muslim shopkeeper killed after wishing his customers happy Easter,

:00:00.:00:00.

police arrest another Muslim man and say they are treating the killing as

:00:00.:00:00.

religiously prejudiced. Let's joy be and can find, two paper

:00:00.:00:23.

reviews, but we are not doing it to confer new. -- confuse you.

:00:24.:00:30.

With me are Ben Riley-Smith, political correspondent

:00:31.:00:32.

for the Daily Telegraph, and Martin Lipton,

:00:33.:00:34.

We begin with the Times, its front page carries the story

:00:35.:00:38.

of how City traders are planning to exploit the European Union

:00:39.:00:41.

referendum for financial gain by commissioning private polls

:00:42.:00:43.

The Daily Mail leads on a Glasgow shopkeeper's murder,

:00:44.:00:47.

asking if the fatal stabbing of the "peace-loving man"

:00:48.:00:49.

The last ever Independent front page takes us to Brussels,

:00:50.:00:53.

which has dominated headlines this week.

:00:54.:00:57.

The Express looks at a group of 250 business leaders who are siding

:00:58.:01:00.

with the Vote Leave campaign in the Brexit vote.

:01:01.:01:02.

The Financial Times also carries that story,

:01:03.:01:04.

adding another leaving voice to the Brexit camp.

:01:05.:01:10.

New controversial health guidance figures

:01:11.:01:11.

And the Mirror claims the Pope tried to stop the Rolling Stones playing

:01:12.:01:23.

in Havana on Good Friday. We will show you them in a minute.

:01:24.:01:29.

The Telegraph, Brussels fugitive had visited Britain, there is a picture

:01:30.:01:39.

of the man on the run, the man in white. I am sure your viewers

:01:40.:01:43.

remember the picture on the front pages earlier, the two men with

:01:44.:01:50.

gloves so we now believe our bombers, and the third man in white

:01:51.:01:57.

who it appears as got away. He is believed to be Mohammed Abrini, and

:01:58.:02:06.

he came to Britain in July, he has reportedly taken photos of a

:02:07.:02:13.

football stadium. A lot of viewers will be asking, will we see a repeat

:02:14.:02:18.

of those scenes over here? It is worrying that this man in white

:02:19.:02:23.

should have been to Britain. He is thought to be on the run, and there

:02:24.:02:28.

are so many strands do this, getting quite complicated with connections

:02:29.:02:32.

to the Paris attacks of November as well. Indeed, and obviously we have

:02:33.:02:41.

a situation where there seems to be precursors to the explosions in

:02:42.:02:45.

Brussels, and that was all about Paris. The thing is, we are all

:02:46.:02:49.

lived through terror of various forms, particularly, of course, the

:02:50.:02:55.

7/7 bombings, and one suspects that it would be less likely that they

:02:56.:02:59.

would target London, but I understand that Mohamed Abrini was

:03:00.:03:02.

in the West Midlands, based in Birmingham. Tonight I understand

:03:03.:03:07.

there was another bombing of a football match in Iraq, and we know

:03:08.:03:12.

there was the bombing at the Stade de France in November, we have

:03:13.:03:17.

increased security over the euros in the summer, and once in a time

:03:18.:03:24.

terrorists would not have thought about attacking sport, but now it

:03:25.:03:27.

seems to be a weapon in their armoury. If we move on to the

:03:28.:03:37.

Financial Times, Brexit camp wins exit backers, the ex ages be

:03:38.:03:42.

achieved joining the Leave supporters, some fairly high-profile

:03:43.:03:50.

people in this list. -- the ex HSBC chief. Yes, many names, over 200

:03:51.:04:07.

signatories from all over the business world and the economic

:04:08.:04:10.

world as well. This is almost a little bit of an effort by the

:04:11.:04:15.

Brexit is to say that it is not one-dimensional from business, that

:04:16.:04:18.

the normal view is that business as a whole may be more keen to stay in

:04:19.:04:24.

because of the potential benefits, and the Brexit campaign is saying,

:04:25.:04:28.

hang on, there is a range of opinions on the subject, and you do

:04:29.:04:35.

not have to be, you know, if you are from a business background, you do

:04:36.:04:39.

not have to support staying in. What are they saying about this potential

:04:40.:04:43.

for turbulence, uncertainty, that we would be trying to extricate

:04:44.:04:47.

ourselves from these tentacles that we are part of? That is why it is

:04:48.:04:52.

such a fundamental issue, because economic and certainty is a massive

:04:53.:04:55.

swing for those on the side, maybe as many as a third of voters. --

:04:56.:05:04.

economic uncertainty. As it was in the Scottish referendum. Up those on

:05:05.:05:08.

the side Brexit say there would be a of uncertainty, but it would be

:05:09.:05:14.

incredibly freeing, and he says that there would be a huge boost to

:05:15.:05:18.

business and the private sector and the financial sector, but if you

:05:19.:05:24.

really believe there is economic uncertainty, you are more likely to

:05:25.:05:32.

vote in, so it is a key battle. The Times as another EU story, City to

:05:33.:05:37.

cash in, hedge fund is planning to make big profits, how would they do

:05:38.:05:42.

that? To do with commissioning polls that you cannot publish until voting

:05:43.:05:46.

is finished? For obvious reasons, they cannot reveal exit polls

:05:47.:05:50.

through the voting period, imagine if at 5pm they were saying that

:05:51.:05:56.

Brexit would win, you would see a search of pro-EU voters. Hedge fund

:05:57.:06:01.

is reportedly trying to commission their own polls, costing up to 500

:06:02.:06:05.

grand, and on the back of that either buy lots of sterling, if they

:06:06.:06:10.

think it is going to be an in vote, or do the opposite for out. It is

:06:11.:06:16.

using polling to get an advantage. And they do not care if they cannot

:06:17.:06:22.

publish it, because it is all about money. City trading is all about

:06:23.:06:26.

gambling, and if you have an advantage over the house, you will

:06:27.:06:31.

take it. That is why casinos banned people who know what they are doing!

:06:32.:06:36.

What is 100 grand when you can make millions on these markets? A drop in

:06:37.:06:41.

the ocean, isn't it? Let's look at the Mirror, world exclusive, Pope's

:06:42.:06:46.

bid to silence the Rolling Stones, I love this, but can ask staff rockers

:06:47.:06:52.

not to play at Van Eyck answered on holy day. -- Vatican asks rockers

:06:53.:07:10.

not to play Havana concert on holy day. Ease the same age! It is a

:07:11.:07:19.

great Easter story, quite fun. -- he is the same age. It is an

:07:20.:07:28.

interesting week in Cuba, having the Rolling Stones in the heart of

:07:29.:07:31.

Havana is the perfect way to cap this story. They have not taken any

:07:32.:07:37.

notice. They have spent their entire career ignoring people telling them

:07:38.:07:44.

what to do! Nobody tells Mick Jagger what to do. He was so amiable in the

:07:45.:07:50.

interview on the tarmac, for a wild man of rock. Ease a great grand dad!

:07:51.:07:55.

Give him a chance, he is doing well just to get at there. -- he is a

:07:56.:08:03.

great grand dad! He is 72, it is a good age! A good age(!) Are dairy

:08:04.:08:09.

intake to cut obesity, something else we are not meant to eat. --

:08:10.:08:19.

halve dairy intake. That is what they are saying today! The problem

:08:20.:08:23.

with this is, if we did take note, we would not be getting all the

:08:24.:08:28.

calcium we need. We would not get the calcium we need, and there are

:08:29.:08:32.

concerns about young people, and it is a tiny amount, 600 calories of

:08:33.:08:38.

dairy for men, a large cappuccino would push you over the limit for a

:08:39.:08:43.

woman, according to these guidelines. Three slices of sandwich

:08:44.:08:51.

cheese. Who wants to?! You can have three cups of white coffee... I have

:08:52.:08:56.

three cups of white coffee before lunch, it is ridiculous! It is the

:08:57.:09:01.

next type of food to be demonised. We have had sugar. No sugar, carbs,

:09:02.:09:08.

dairy. Is red wine good or bad? Butter? Oh, you know, just eat and

:09:09.:09:17.

drink in moderation, exercise, it is pretty simple! You two are looking

:09:18.:09:21.

very trim. I have lost a bit of weight! I did it by doing a lot of

:09:22.:09:27.

running and eating a game less, amazing(!) There is no magic to it.

:09:28.:09:33.

Journalism is a nightmare profession for the diet. It is possible, if an

:09:34.:09:42.

idiot like me can look after himself, anybody can. It seems to

:09:43.:09:50.

be, given the backlash, was this a piece of advice... There is also a

:09:51.:09:55.

suggestion that this is based on bad science. Oh, we need Ben Goldenacre!

:09:56.:10:06.

I think it is a guy who did not get the job. There is a serious problem,

:10:07.:10:12.

particularly for women with osteoporosis, it is a tricky

:10:13.:10:17.

balance. It is difficult, because people are worried about what is

:10:18.:10:21.

good for them and how they should be eating, but this sort of

:10:22.:10:24.

scaremongering advice, to me, is quite damaging, I feel. It should be

:10:25.:10:32.

more sensible about the reality, just do not be stupid, do the right

:10:33.:10:38.

thing. ETA less Komla Dumor - it is dull but it works. Eat less, move

:10:39.:10:52.

more. If only she followed her own advice! Uber are staging helicopter

:10:53.:11:00.

trips to a music festival. He knows all about it. This is a fascinating

:11:01.:11:09.

story, Uber has totally shaken up the black cab market in London, they

:11:10.:11:14.

are furious about it, it has done it across the world. It has teamed up

:11:15.:11:20.

with an app called Blade, which has massive backers, the bloke behind

:11:21.:11:24.

Google, and the idea is they will do the same with private jets, and they

:11:25.:11:32.

are trying it with Coachella, flying from LA to Palm Springs. Just hail a

:11:33.:11:37.

helicopter? Is that how you got here tonight? Can I go shopping in

:11:38.:11:44.

Wandsworth with a helicopter? It is not environmentally friendly, is it?

:11:45.:11:47.

If that is our people are getting around Sao Paulo, the roads are so

:11:48.:11:55.

bad. There is a chance it could be economically sensible, because these

:11:56.:11:58.

private jets are presumably flying empty with spare seats, and the

:11:59.:12:03.

think Uber does so well is matches up supply and demand. In a funny

:12:04.:12:10.

way, you could get these jets fall. They have been criticised for

:12:11.:12:18.

working practices, contracts. Can you imagine what a Uber pilot might

:12:19.:12:30.

be like? And the black cab drivers to spend all that time learning the

:12:31.:12:34.

Knowledge. You are not going to wait on a street corner for a helicopter,

:12:35.:12:40.

are you? Let us finish with a tribute to the Independence, their

:12:41.:12:45.

last printed front-page. And they have not gone overboard with mawkish

:12:46.:12:53.

retrospectives. The thing we have known them for over the years has

:12:54.:12:57.

been the big picture front, they can you stand up and take notice, and it

:12:58.:13:01.

is just a normal newspaper. I think it is quite sad. I remember the

:13:02.:13:08.

launch of papers, we had Today, and also the Correspondent, and all

:13:09.:13:11.

three have now disappeared, two of them some time ago. But it does feel

:13:12.:13:21.

sad, 30 years on, a newspaper which changed the landscape of the press,

:13:22.:13:25.

actually, has bitten the dust for economic reasons, it is a shame.

:13:26.:13:30.

They have given us a special edition magazine looking back on some of

:13:31.:13:35.

their archive and the writing that they offered over the years. The

:13:36.:13:38.

number of famous names that have gone through the Independent. Robert

:13:39.:13:44.

Fisk and the others, I think it is lovely that they have done these

:13:45.:13:48.

magazines with some of the front pages, because graphically they had

:13:49.:13:52.

some stunning front pages, used images really well, the Hutton

:13:53.:13:57.

Report, totally white with the word why to watch. Closer to the

:13:58.:14:03.

beginning of my career, breeding new talent, it was the first time I was

:14:04.:14:11.

published. -- with the word whitewash. As the name suggested,

:14:12.:14:15.

they were more left of centre politically, I would weighing some

:14:16.:14:19.

of the papers like the Telegraph and the Daily Mail during the election.

:14:20.:14:27.

-- outweighing. It is very sad, but a lovely addition for people to buy.

:14:28.:14:30.

It is a real shame. The addition it is very sad, but we will

:14:31.:14:50.

hopefully keep reviewing it from its online presence. Ben may well be at

:14:51.:14:56.

the beginning of his career, but Martin and I are in no way near the

:14:57.:15:05.

end of hours! We will hopefully be back to look at the papers later. At

:15:06.:15:11.

11 o'clock more on the terror raids in Brussels, two suspects were shot

:15:12.:15:15.

by police. Coming up next, Reporters.
