Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:00.:00:16.

With me are Ben Riley-Smith, political correspondent for the

:00:17.:00:23.

Daily Telegraph and Martin Lipton, Deputy Head of Sport for the Sun.

:00:24.:00:32.

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

:00:33.:00:35.

of how City traders are planning to exploit the European Union

:00:36.:00:38.

referendum for financial gain by commissioning private exit polls.

:00:39.:00:44.

The Daily Mail leads on the killing of a Muslim

:00:45.:00:46.

shopkeeper in Glasgow - calling it the murder of a man of peace.

:00:47.:00:49.

The last ever Independent front page leads on an investigation

:00:50.:00:52.

The Express highlights the 250 business leaders who are

:00:53.:00:56.

A story also carried by the FT, which says the former head of HSBC

:00:57.:01:00.

is among those supporting the Leave campaign.

:01:01.:01:02.

A warning from Public Health England that people should dramatically cut

:01:03.:01:05.

their dairy intake is featured in the Telegraph.

:01:06.:01:10.

While the Mirror claims the Pope tried to stop the Rolling Stones

:01:11.:01:13.

playing their historic gig in Havana on Good Friday.

:01:14.:01:23.

Without a lot of success that has to be said. He had visited Britain and

:01:24.:01:30.

there is a picture in this story as well. Of a man who was on the run in

:01:31.:01:40.

the attack in Brussels. This is a man that people would have seen in

:01:41.:01:48.

the footage that was released. Of course they've seen that with the

:01:49.:01:53.

man with a single glove on his left hand and led off the explosive. And

:01:54.:02:00.

this man is being dealt the man on the right. He said that he came to

:02:01.:02:09.

Britain where he reportedly took pictures of a football stadium. That

:02:10.:02:20.

is a horror image. The man was seen here last summer and that is

:02:21.:02:28.

worrying new. -- News. And there was also an attack in Iraq in a football

:02:29.:02:43.

match. It will be a concern that people going over for the

:02:44.:02:46.

tournament, make consider their position as well. If you are looking

:02:47.:02:51.

to attack in the UK, you know that has happened in the past, would you

:02:52.:02:55.

go for London or a softer target President Barack -- softer target?

:02:56.:03:09.

And this is the fear that we all have to live with in our lives but

:03:10.:03:13.

if you allow that to dominate your thoughts and prevent yourself from

:03:14.:03:16.

living a normal life, then they have won and that is the issue. Do you go

:03:17.:03:22.

into work or going to city centres? Get the bounce that equation. The

:03:23.:03:31.

Daily Express, business leaders want out of the EU. Quite a lot of big

:03:32.:03:42.

names. Including the executive of HSBC. Even the Bangladesh caterers

:03:43.:03:59.

Association said that they are planning a pro Brexit

:04:00.:04:06.

demonstration. He says there are too many immigrants coming from the EU.

:04:07.:04:17.

The reality is that they are wary of the line being pushed that business

:04:18.:04:25.

fears the consequences of the except and therefore they need to

:04:26.:04:29.

counteract that they are. As we've seen in the Scottish Referendum,

:04:30.:04:34.

economic fears are in the end the thing that decides the undecided.

:04:35.:04:40.

The light switches. If those who support the exit can alleviate those

:04:41.:04:45.

concerns, that would potentially be a Pivotal Point in the whole

:04:46.:04:49.

campaign. It is worth thinking about the other side because the left and

:04:50.:04:53.

Jeremy Corbyn had his criticism of the EU is that it will open up and

:04:54.:05:04.

they will make a lot of cash. He was against joining it in the 70s. The

:05:05.:05:12.

problem with all these warnings is that some people on the left could

:05:13.:05:20.

begin to see a stitch up and also if you are the establishment campaign,

:05:21.:05:23.

there is a mood around the establishment feeling. Also around

:05:24.:05:41.

the world. And they are looking to try to expand from the idea from

:05:42.:05:49.

being a Eurosceptic and broaden the coalition. There is a lot of

:05:50.:05:53.

addiction from workers that came from Europe in the end. The Times

:05:54.:06:02.

next, city to cash in on the EU vote. This is a loophole in polling

:06:03.:06:09.

law that allows hedge fund is to find out ahead what is going on.

:06:10.:06:13.

Where ever there is uncertainty there is the cash. There is a rule

:06:14.:06:18.

that makes perfect sense that if you are a polling company you cannot

:06:19.:06:26.

publish polls during the voting period because people might see that

:06:27.:06:30.

we are about to go towards the Brexit lets rush and vote the other

:06:31.:06:36.

way. However, there is no ban on private companies, or in this

:06:37.:06:40.

instance, massive hedge fund is, doing their own polling and betting

:06:41.:06:48.

into cash markets by piling into the dollar or sterling. It only costs

:06:49.:07:03.

100000 and 500,000 for one of these poll. They say that one big US firm

:07:04.:07:09.

is sniffing around this. Is a perfectly legal -- it is a perfectly

:07:10.:07:17.

legal loophole. May be trying to close it. Will know it is perfectly

:07:18.:07:28.

legal. -- well. Generic boys and girls, these men and women, they are

:07:29.:07:34.

traders and gamblers and if they can beat the house, they will. Sorry, I

:07:35.:07:46.

could not resist. The drink ravaged face of the fallen English icon, of

:07:47.:07:59.

Paul Gascoigne. His life recently has been very sad. What is a picture

:08:00.:08:10.

of putting him in this state? 30 huge amount of interest in him and I

:08:11.:08:15.

know him fairly well and have dealt with him over many years and I feel

:08:16.:08:22.

a great deal of sympathy for his family and I think this is a

:08:23.:08:26.

shocking image. But it is the difference of the public interest

:08:27.:08:30.

and the interest of the public, but here's a man who always wanted the

:08:31.:08:37.

limelight. But he is not well, is he? Know he is not well. But

:08:38.:08:41.

sometimes you have to face with the consequences of your actions and you

:08:42.:08:45.

have to face up to it. But I don't think that will change his actions.

:08:46.:08:49.

He was always accused of wanting attention but he did not want

:08:50.:08:53.

attention, he just craved affection. And too many people took advantage

:08:54.:08:59.

of that. The mirror, while exclusive, the pope's bid to silence

:09:00.:09:06.

the Rolling Stones. They are going on soon so did not work. No

:09:07.:09:14.

satisfaction. Did you think of that in the last hour? It is a sign that

:09:15.:09:22.

things have changed so much that they're able to play, given that

:09:23.:09:29.

they were subversive and a threat to Communist society. It has been an

:09:30.:09:34.

amazing historic week with the Cold War being dead for some time now,

:09:35.:09:39.

but that final opening up of Cuba with those amazing scenes of

:09:40.:09:46.

President Barack Obama in the stadium and then God versus the

:09:47.:09:55.

stones over Cuba. I would have loved to have heard the phone call from

:09:56.:10:05.

the Vatican. Weir not going to -- not going to happen. Half the dairy

:10:06.:10:20.

intake to cut obesity. So many people on Twitter have been telling

:10:21.:10:27.

me how successful they have been by doing exercise and cutting down

:10:28.:10:32.

their intake. The public health has criticised this advice? It has been

:10:33.:10:42.

described as bad science from nutrition experts by saying that

:10:43.:10:46.

women should have a smaller intake of dairy should not drink a large

:10:47.:10:51.

last day made with whole milk because it would exceed their 160

:10:52.:10:57.

calorie allowance. But they should eat three slices of sandwich cheese

:10:58.:11:02.

and have a bowl of cereal with skimmed milk. This is nonsense. They

:11:03.:11:13.

are just saying that you need to be doing things in moderation. It is

:11:14.:11:22.

this approach, work and off by running a bit more. Walk to the

:11:23.:11:30.

shops. Just walk! Just don't get in the car for the school run. Walk to

:11:31.:11:34.

school if you can, it is not difficult. I think it is the

:11:35.:11:38.

absolutism of this. Who's going to measure out if this is what they are

:11:39.:11:42.

having on top of measuring hammer grams of sugar they have and the

:11:43.:11:52.

amount of fat they have. Every day the health advice changes and one

:11:53.:11:54.

thing that is good few changes the next time. They are just bluffing

:11:55.:11:59.

and they don't have a clue. Well we all like a guideline. It becomes

:12:00.:12:10.

white noise after a while. Let us look finally and for the final time

:12:11.:12:14.

at the printed version of the independent. This is the last time

:12:15.:12:22.

we will see it in the rented form. They haven't gone overboard on this

:12:23.:12:32.

because they will be on mine. -- online. I think anybody picking up

:12:33.:12:39.

that this was their last entered addition, we're saying that this is

:12:40.:12:46.

the point. It is not the end of the independent and it continues to be

:12:47.:12:51.

digital and online they are continuing. They are saying that

:12:52.:12:57.

this is not the end but the beginning of a different future. And

:12:58.:13:02.

a reminder of all the different names who've written and edited for

:13:03.:13:10.

the paper. It's a shame because it was groundbreaking and new where was

:13:11.:13:17.

first released. We have that period of papers being launched and

:13:18.:13:24.

suddenly they have all gone and we have left with a diminished market

:13:25.:13:29.

and that is a shame. Will still a journalist here -- we will still

:13:30.:13:37.

have journalists here. Such restraint! I saw you take it away.

:13:38.:13:43.
