That is all from Sportsday. Coming up in a moment, The Papers.


Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be


With me are the Huffington Post's Entertainment Editor Caroline Frost


and Parliamentary journalist Tony Grew.


Do not worry I have checked the tax returns and they are all right! You


look worried! Tomorrow's front


pages, starting with The Independent leads on today's


financial revelations The Metro brands Labour leader


Jeremy Corbyn a "tax bodger" for getting his return to the taxman


five days late. The Prime Minister comes out


fighting, says the Guardian, as he battles to draw


a line under the row Sense at last, says


the Daily Express, as David Cameron backs the right of parents to pass


wealth to their children. And The Daily Telegraph also leads


on the Prime Minister's fight back against what they call a "lynch mob"


unleashed over his After a mother is jailed for life


for murdering her toddler daughter, The New Day focuses on failings


that they say have led to many The Times reports that more families


are installing cameras to protect elderly relatives from theft


by care workers. And the Financial Times says the EU


is under pressure to block a deal that could reduce the number


of mobile phone providers you had the pleasure of being in the


House of Commons today. You would think it was the end of January,


with all these tax returns being filed! The Prime Minister came to


the Commons, the first time it had sat since the Easter recess. The


first five minutes of his statement was all about his own taxation of


fierce, with relation to his parents. What was interesting was


that while the Prime Minister was speaking, the Labour leader 's tax


return was suddenly launched. We will talk about him in a minute. All


the politicians coming out, the mere of London, the Labour leader, the


Chancellor of the extra. What is behind this? The view of the Prime


Minister is that the Prime Minister, the Chancellor and the shadow


versions on the opposition bench should all make the tax returns


public. Here are some MPs seeing the public mood is that we have to be


transparent. MPs have been running scared from the public since the


expenses scandal. I saw the tweets and it says Jeremy


Corbyn has been earning an MP's salary and does not have any savings


and do you trust this man to run the economy? Is that how we want things


to go? In America politicians don't have too publish their tax returns,


but they have two published their medical records. If you are going to


run the country, the public should know as much about you as possible.


Is making all MPs reveal their tax returns going to far?


I wonder what would satisfy the public. Their frowns in the house


because David Cameron has been seen to pay too much money because he has


earned too much money, but someone who doesn't earn enough is seen as


not making the grade either. Jeremy Corbyn talked about the need for


trust. I was reminded about the husband the mobile phone. If you


trusted me, you would not to look. If you trusted me, you would show me


everything in your phone. I am thinking we should elect people that


we trust and then leave them to get on with running the country. This


seems to be a distraction. As you were saying and Jacob Rees Mogg


alluded to this today, the expenses scandal. People who are representing


us might not be kosher in certain matters. That is go to the Times.


Family firm pays Osborne ?45,000, but no corporation tax. That is


correct. Companies can carry over losses. He has been paid a dividend


as a shareholder. That is not a tax dodge. It is legal for them to do


and lots of companies do that. They can take a loss and roll it over for


a couple of years and then pay corporation tax. So why is the


front-page headline there. Nothing illegal about it. Because I know how


rich Cameron and Osborne. We now know exactly down to the last pound


how much they are worth. Again, for me, we made a significant cultural


shift in our politics. The much more important legal documents from


Panama that we we have got of focus on, because it is about politicians


and celebrities, and the calls we want to know that Boris at paid


nearly ?1 million in tax. Why are none of us infuriated by Boris's tax


bill? That is bigger, so it should be more infuriating, but it's about


this dodge. There is no suggestion that there has been a dodge. We knew


that Boris was well paid, so we are not surprised. We know he has


written bestselling books. He has a significant other income. Also he is


not in the Cabinet, he is an MP. But yes, we are getting into the


situation now where this could become normal and one of the


concerns is it would further put of good people you want to be in public


service. They will think if they are going to dig into things that were


legitimately private a year ago, and just to point this out, Churchill


would not have got through this. He's finances were shocking.


Shockingly wealthy? No, in disarray. It is great for us as journalists


because great stories will come up, even just from these returns, but as


I said, there is some concern, and one Tory MP made a comment where he


said anyone who is attacking the Prime Minister hates wealth. And if


we keep that up, we will end up with a House of Commons full of low


achievers. The front page of the Metro, Caroline. Going back to Mr


Corbyn, the tax dodger. He filed his return late and had to pay a ?110


fine. I'm sure people will have sympathy with him. David Cameron has


been working so hard to present himself as an everyman with summer


trips to Cornwall and the Canary Islands and tucking away the estate


in the Highlands and Jeremy Corbyn has done it by messing up his tax


return. He has done what every single person has done because they


are not organised because they are so busy. We are now going to go to


the financial Times. British Steel is back. Would not want to give the


impression that tax returns were the anything is discussed in the Commons


today. Interesting the form of words the government is using. Coinvestors


means partly nationalised. How could be party of Margaret Thatcher the


considering partly renationalising the still industry that her


government sold in 1988? There are lots of factors involved. The still


works in the North of England were not given this level of support. But


there is an election in May and the Tories are hoping to do well. There


are factors that have come into play as to why support has been given,


but as a country, it is probably not good if our in Tyers steel industry


collapses and we can't create steel. It would be a real problem.


Caroline, the suggestion that British Steel, at least the name is


back, and the fact the government is investing in the industry in a


wholehearted way suggest it does have a real future now? I mean, it


feels like it is going into vintage status. You know when things are


really on Trent then go out of fashion, then go so far at a fashion


that you get this new nest out of the something that as you said, was


an enormous brand. We are all too young, obviously, but a proper blast


from the past. You do wonder where it is going and if this is a


re-emergence in an industry that we thought had disappeared. Families


should put cameras into homes of elderly relatives. Caroline? This


cuts to the heart of anyone who has elderly relatives. The idea that you


spend your money, you go to great attention and care to get someone to


look after them and then the times with a story like this. The carer is


caught not only neglecting her awards, but exploiting the situation


and picking in her purse. Experts are now suggesting that more people


put CCTV cameras within the homes as both a disincentive and a way of


catching people out. I can't stand stories like this. They make me sad.


It makes you wonder why there are not CCTV is all over this -- CCTV is


all over homes. There has been a spike in these incidents. There is


nothing about this that is not depressing. One aspect of it is it


is easy to blame other people -- blame elderly people. They are


senile. They are vulnerable and it is tragic that carers are taking


advantage of them. The actual carer is looking up to see if she can find


the CCTV camera. She is looking in the wrong direction. Then she


pilfered the purse. Now to the express. Tom Jones's wife has died.


They had been married for 59 years. They met when they were 12, got


married when they were 16. It is interesting. Tom Jones has been


famous so long. He has had different Carnation. Welsh valley boy, the


Vegas years, LA, seducing various women across the globe, as he has


always professed. The whole time his wife has been in the background. She


came to the fore last jed when he published his memoir and talked


about the fact that he may have had all of these other ladies in his


life but only one woman had his heart and sadly he lost her over the


weekend. It is amazing that you can meet someone at 12 and still be with


them, in terms of your marriage and everything is going as well as


perhaps it can, right to the very end. It's not just about being


together that long. Think about how much her life change. A 16-year-old


girl from the valleys. That's what I find most interesting. His life


change because he is a performer. He hung out with Alvis in the 60s, but


for the wife, it has been interesting and unusual. I suspect


when they met and married, they did not think their lifestyle would


change significantly. People like Richard Burton and people who have


married a young sweethearts, that is the first chapter. Then you hear


about the chapters later on and they are so often in these great showbiz


stories the history of the wife left behind, but yet there she was. She


did not like to fly. Off he went on was this great international showbiz


personality was at home all that time. It has been great having you


on. Many thanks. That is it for The Papers. A bit of run-through of some


of the other papers that have just come into worse. The Daily Mirror


brands the Chancellor the chance of the exchequer. The sun leads on what


it calls a pushy transfer as Adam Johnson prepares to move to a lower


category team. And back to the biggest story of the day as topology


shins reveal their earnings. All the front pages are online on the BBC


News website where you can read a detailed review of the papers. You


can see us there, too, in each night's edition of The Papers. The


programme will be posted on the page shortly after we come off air. Thank


you both joining us. That it. Goodbye. -- that is it.
