Coming up, the superhero slugfest as Superman takes on Batman, but what

:00:00.:00:00.

is Mark Kermode think of it? Find out in The Film Review.

:00:00.:00:13.

Hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Claire Cohen, the Deputy Women's Editor at the

:00:17.:00:21.

Daily Telegraph, and Rob Merrick, the Parliamentary Journalist.

:00:22.:00:28.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with:

:00:29.:00:32.

The Express says one in five people believe they will

:00:33.:00:34.

have to work into their 70s or face poverty in old age.

:00:35.:00:37.

The Metro leads with teachers at the NUT conference calling

:00:38.:00:40.

for the Government to drop an initiative that would require

:00:41.:00:42.

them to report pupils over views they express in the classroom.

:00:43.:00:46.

The New Day has a feature on the increasing number of children

:00:47.:00:49.

being arrested for firearms offences - currently nine every week.

:00:50.:00:52.

The Telegraph says senior fire officers are claiming retirement

:00:53.:00:55.

payouts by leaving their jobs and then returning shortly afterwards.

:00:56.:01:01.

The FT leads with the Chinese insurance firm Anbang increasing

:01:02.:01:03.

its offer to takeover Starwood Hotels - extending a bidding war

:01:04.:01:06.

The Guardian says Pakistan's army have arrested 'a number'

:01:07.:01:11.

of suspects across Punjab province, a day after a suicide bomb killed

:01:12.:01:14.

The Times claims a growing number of British expats are returning home

:01:15.:01:21.

because of uncertainties over what will happen if the UK leaves the EU.

:01:22.:01:24.

And the Mail continues with the EU theme, leading with a report

:01:25.:01:28.

from Vote Leave, which says free movement has allowed

:01:29.:01:30.

dozens of foreign criminals to commit serious offences in the UK.

:01:31.:01:42.

Let's start with the Guardian. A fascinating story, Brussels is urged

:01:43.:01:52.

to fight the West. The sad texts presumably coming from is the state

:01:53.:01:56.

or people affiliated with it urging youth to fight. Really interesting

:01:57.:02:01.

story on the front page of the Guardian. These texts were sent over

:02:02.:02:06.

the weekend to use in Molenbeek. Beverley knows where they came from

:02:07.:02:12.

-- two years. Why not fight the Westerners and make the right choice

:02:13.:02:15.

in your life, they say? It comes hot on the heels of a video on Facebook

:02:16.:02:22.

apparently showing local youths celebrating the attacks in Brussels,

:02:23.:02:24.

and that was from a prepaid account they could not be traced. It is

:02:25.:02:29.

worrying, that sort of what we ready new, that this battle is being

:02:30.:02:36.

fought on social media and via text message as well as on the ground --

:02:37.:02:40.

already knew. You only have to look back at the girls being recruited as

:02:41.:02:45.

jihadi brides, three girls from Bethnal Green who were recruited on

:02:46.:02:48.

Twitter. It comes hot on the heels of that. They were targeting young

:02:49.:02:53.

men in Molenbeek, which we know is of concern. It is a rundown area of

:02:54.:02:58.

Brussels. And predominately Muslim as well. It seems as if they have

:02:59.:03:05.

the numbers to send the text messages from Isis recruits. They

:03:06.:03:11.

will download all of the contacts from phones, harvest those numbers,

:03:12.:03:15.

and send out those text messages. There is no suggestion that people

:03:16.:03:20.

receive the text messages are Isis sympathisers necessarily. They have

:03:21.:03:26.

just had contact with people who became Isis recruits. They are

:03:27.:03:33.

almost trying to start writing in a particular area, which can only add

:03:34.:03:37.

the siege mentality that Molenbeek has received. It speaks about a far

:03:38.:03:43.

right group trying to hold a demonstration in that area next

:03:44.:03:47.

Saturday, but a similar group disrupted a vigil the other day. It

:03:48.:03:51.

is thrown much centred on this one area. People are discussing all the

:03:52.:03:58.

time how does a young Muslim, a teenage girl or boy, young man or

:03:59.:04:04.

woman, the, radicalised? Often when I have had discussions like this and

:04:05.:04:08.

with experts as well, what you often hear is it is not a simple

:04:09.:04:13.

radicalisation. -- how do they become radicalised? It is social

:04:14.:04:17.

injustice, lack of opportunity, rebellion. It makes the whole issue

:04:18.:04:23.

much more complicated than stopping medicalisation on the Internet.

:04:24.:04:28.

Experts have talked about it not so much being the radicalisation of

:04:29.:04:34.

Islam. There will not pick up arms just because of a text. They talk

:04:35.:04:39.

about the is my session of radicalism, so people would think

:04:40.:04:44.

for a cause because they are genuinely dissatisfied with their

:04:45.:04:47.

lives or have particular beefs. -- Islamisation. They attach themselves

:04:48.:04:53.

to the extreme Islamic causes as a means of pursuing radicalism rather

:04:54.:04:57.

than perhaps Islam in general becoming more radical. It is people

:04:58.:05:03.

just generally dissatisfied. A lot of these teenagers have typical

:05:04.:05:08.

teenage issues, they are disaffected, looking to rebel,

:05:09.:05:10.

looking for answers and someone to listen to. They are being misled as

:05:11.:05:14.

well which is why some have come back. We should move on.

:05:15.:05:18.

Fascinating, but we have other stories. Let's move on to the Daily

:05:19.:05:22.

Mail, and the headline that the cost of our open borders. This is

:05:23.:05:27.

presumably about EU free movement. This is a report from the exit

:05:28.:05:32.

campaign, vote to leave, saying 50 of the most dangerous European

:05:33.:05:38.

criminals have entered Europe freely and have committed further crimes

:05:39.:05:42.

over here. It goes on to say that EU membership will make the UK less

:05:43.:05:47.

safe and less secure. That's what the Brexit campaign say. It is

:05:48.:05:52.

conjecture, Frickley. We don't have any idea whether it will not --

:05:53.:05:59.

frankly. We don't know how a Brexit or otherwise will affect our

:06:00.:06:03.

borders. It is another talking head from that campaign without much

:06:04.:06:07.

clarity of thought. It highlights one of the big issues, which is free

:06:08.:06:10.

movement. That is what people are worried about. I think there really

:06:11.:06:17.

is a thinking, great, a story about the EU referendum, just what we were

:06:18.:06:25.

waiting for. That phrase is interesting, staying in would make

:06:26.:06:31.

the UK less safe and secure. The Prime Minister says if we leave we

:06:32.:06:34.

will be less safe and secure. I think people are confused. They have

:06:35.:06:42.

letting dozens of foreign criminals, but most people would dispute that

:06:43.:06:47.

in this story, but that foreign criminals have come to Britain, but

:06:48.:06:50.

whether it is free movement rules that have allowed them to do so. We

:06:51.:06:55.

still have passport checks, we are not part of the Schengen area. That

:06:56.:06:59.

will not change whether we are part of the EU or not. We will have to

:07:00.:07:04.

wait until June to find out if Britain quits the EU, but some

:07:05.:07:08.

experts are doing that already, coming home. Thousands return home

:07:09.:07:13.

amid exit fees. One does wonder how it will affect Brits abroad. It is

:07:14.:07:19.

an odd story because it starts suggesting that Brits wilfully

:07:20.:07:26.

Europe and come back to Britain, but this is been happening for the past

:07:27.:07:30.

two years and 72,000 Britons have ready left Spain. -- Brits will flee

:07:31.:07:36.

Europe. We have read about the eurozone crisis and Brits fleeing

:07:37.:07:41.

Spain and coming home because of sponsoring property prices in

:07:42.:07:44.

difficulty getting jobs. And things getting more expensive. -- echoes of

:07:45.:07:53.

rising poverty prices and difficulty getting jobs. Ahead of the

:07:54.:07:58.

referendum, why would you disrupt your life in the dream you have had

:07:59.:08:02.

of living abroad and come home now ahead of the vote? Does not make

:08:03.:08:05.

sense. But it makes sense that people would come home if we vote to

:08:06.:08:10.

leave, and the consequence may be that they lose the right of free

:08:11.:08:13.

healthcare. This is not just an issue for expats. The numbers are

:08:14.:08:17.

startling. Tens of thousands of British pensioners, hundreds of

:08:18.:08:23.

thousands, in both France and Spain. Fewer than 100 Spanish pensioners

:08:24.:08:28.

here or French pensioners here. We have a great deal at the moment.

:08:29.:08:33.

They sent over the young people who work for us, pay taxes and make us

:08:34.:08:38.

rich, we send out old people over there who cause an enormous cost on

:08:39.:08:43.

the health services. It raises questions over what happens to those

:08:44.:08:45.

who have settled here from the European Union. The daily Mirror,

:08:46.:08:58.

this is a shocking story. I am not especially shocked because I did an

:08:59.:09:01.

investigation into this some years ago. Kids of ten in gun crime

:09:02.:09:05.

epidemic. Hundreds of children cope with weapons. I did an investigation

:09:06.:09:11.

where I revealed that children as young as nine or ten could hire a

:09:12.:09:16.

gun on what was often referred to as the Hackney mile because there were

:09:17.:09:20.

so many murders. It shows guns are in Britain. Maybe not as many as

:09:21.:09:25.

other countries, but it is a huge problem. This has come out because

:09:26.:09:30.

of a freedom of information request. The feeling seems to be that

:09:31.:09:36.

children are being used as meals for gangs or at having guns as a status

:09:37.:09:40.

thing. Having a gun is seen as having power, the statement says. It

:09:41.:09:46.

is going culture. It is a shocking thing. We are used to seeing

:09:47.:09:53.

headlines to do with kids when it is digital crime, cybercrime. The last

:09:54.:09:58.

time I saw a headline about kids that age, they were being caught up

:09:59.:10:03.

in revenge born online. It is visceral in that sense. But they

:10:04.:10:09.

might be to its -- but there might be more to it. The most arresting

:10:10.:10:15.

thing is the idea that it is kids age and is ten, but it is about 500

:10:16.:10:22.

year arrested for gun offences. That is triggering in general, so

:10:23.:10:25.

obviously a small number that will be that age. Most cases involving

:10:26.:10:30.

young children are probably imitation weapons, which might be

:10:31.:10:35.

serious, they might be a rivals and that sort of thing. -- air rifles. I

:10:36.:10:43.

think you have to understand going culture as well, because you have

:10:44.:10:48.

these different names for different gangs, but you have the elders, by

:10:49.:10:52.

the real criminals. You have the young people, who have to prove

:10:53.:10:59.

their worth and what to get in on the gang. Gang recruitment does

:11:00.:11:05.

start at that age, ten or 11. You might start with an imitation gun.

:11:06.:11:13.

What does it lead to? We have about one minute for each of these three

:11:14.:11:17.

stories. The front page of the daily Telegraph. Anger over payments to

:11:18.:11:22.

retiring fire chiefs. They are coming back after a nice pay-out. We

:11:23.:11:27.

have long heard about boomerang bosses in the NHS and Whitehall.

:11:28.:11:31.

This is slightly different in that these fire chiefs are taking

:11:32.:11:34.

then coming back to work as little then coming back to work as little

:11:35.:11:38.

as a day later with hugely inflated salaries. It is quite embarrassing,

:11:39.:11:44.

actually. It is a time when fire services are under huge that. There

:11:45.:11:48.

are stations being closed and people losing jobs and you have these

:11:49.:11:53.

people coming back on huge salaries is not great for the fire service.

:11:54.:11:56.

They claim it saves money as they don't have to recruit anybody. We

:11:57.:12:03.

have run out of time. There are so many stories on the front page of

:12:04.:12:07.

the daily Telegraph, but I think we picked one of the best ones. They

:12:08.:12:10.

queue for that. When Kiefer taking us to the papers. When Kiefer

:12:11.:12:15.

watching as well. Now it is time for The Film Review -- thank you for

:12:16.:12:19.

watching.

:12:20.:12:21.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
