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

:00:00.:00:18.

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

:00:19.:00:21.

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

:00:22.:00:25.

and Parliamentary journalist Tony Grew.

:00:26.:00:31.

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

look worried! Tomorrow's front

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

:00:59.:01:01.

wealth to their children. And The Daily Telegraph also leads

:01:02.:01:04.

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

unleashed over his After a mother is jailed for life

:01:10.:01:15.

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

:01:16.:01:18.

are installing cameras to protect elderly relatives from theft

:01:19.:01:22.

by care workers. And the Financial Times says the EU

:01:23.:01:27.

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

:01:28.:01:30.

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

:01:31.:01:49.

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

:01:50.:01:54.

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

:01:55.:02:03.

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

:02:04.:02:10.

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

:02:11.:02:16.

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

:02:17.:02:22.

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

:02:23.:02:28.

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

:02:29.:02:34.

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

:02:35.:02:44.

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

:02:45.:02:50.

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

:02:51.:02:58.

versions on the opposition bench should all make the tax returns

:02:59.:03:08.

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

:03:09.:03:14.

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

:03:15.:03:16.

expenses scandal. I saw the tweets and it says Jeremy

:03:17.:03:57.

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

:03:58.:04:01.

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

:04:02.:04:15.

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

:04:16.:04:19.

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

:04:20.:04:22.

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

:04:23.:04:29.

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

:04:30.:04:42.

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

:04:43.:04:53.

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

:04:54.:04:57.

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

:04:58.:05:03.

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

:05:04.:05:09.

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

:05:10.:05:14.

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

:05:15.:05:19.

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

:05:20.:05:22.

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

:05:23.:05:27.

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

:05:28.:05:37.

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

:05:38.:05:46.

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

:05:47.:05:53.

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

:05:54.:05:59.

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

:06:00.:06:06.

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

:06:07.:06:13.

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

:06:14.:06:21.

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

:06:22.:06:25.

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

:06:26.:06:35.

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

:06:36.:06:40.

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

:06:41.:06:51.

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

:06:52.:06:57.

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

:06:58.:07:03.

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

:07:04.:07:08.

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

:07:09.:07:19.

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

:07:20.:07:25.

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

:07:26.:07:30.

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

:07:31.:07:40.

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

:07:41.:07:49.

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

:07:50.:07:53.

situation now where this could become normal and one of the

:07:54.:07:57.

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

:07:58.:08:00.

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

:08:01.:08:10.

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

:08:11.:08:16.

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

:08:17.:08:23.

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

:08:24.:08:28.

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

:08:29.:08:33.

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

:08:34.:08:40.

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

:08:41.:08:45.

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

:08:46.:08:51.

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

:08:52.:08:56.

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

:08:57.:09:02.

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

:09:03.:09:07.

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

:09:08.:09:15.

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

:09:16.:09:18.

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

:09:19.:09:25.

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

:09:26.:09:29.

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

:09:30.:09:36.

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

:09:37.:09:43.

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

:09:44.:09:48.

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

:09:49.:09:55.

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

:09:56.:10:01.

considering partly renationalising the still industry that her

:10:02.:10:08.

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

:10:09.:10:12.

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

:10:13.:10:17.

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

:10:18.:10:23.

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

:10:24.:10:28.

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

:10:29.:10:34.

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

:10:35.:10:39.

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

:10:40.:10:44.

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

:10:45.:10:48.

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

:10:49.:10:55.

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

:10:56.:10:59.

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

:11:00.:11:03.

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

:11:04.:11:10.

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

:11:11.:11:14.

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

:11:15.:11:18.

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

:11:19.:11:25.

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

:11:26.:11:31.

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

:11:32.:11:39.

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

:11:40.:11:44.

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

:11:45.:11:50.

caught not only neglecting her awards, but exploiting the situation

:11:51.:11:54.

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

:11:55.:12:00.

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

:12:01.:12:04.

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

:12:05.:12:09.

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

:12:10.:12:18.

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

:12:19.:12:24.

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

:12:25.:12:35.

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

:12:36.:12:39.

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

:12:40.:12:44.

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

:12:45.:12:48.

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

:12:49.:12:54.

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

:12:55.:13:04.

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

:13:05.:13:10.

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

:13:11.:13:14.

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

:13:15.:13:22.

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

:13:23.:13:27.

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

:13:28.:13:32.

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

:13:33.:13:35.

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

:13:36.:13:40.

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

:13:41.:13:44.

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

:13:45.:13:50.

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

:13:51.:13:54.

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

:13:55.:14:00.

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

:14:01.:14:05.

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

:14:06.:14:12.

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

:14:13.:14:17.

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

:14:18.:14:24.

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

:14:25.:14:31.

change significantly. People like Richard Burton and people who have

:14:32.:14:35.

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

:14:36.:14:40.

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

:14:41.:14:45.

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

:14:46.:14:53.

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

:14:54.:14:58.

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

:14:59.:15:06.

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

:15:07.:15:11.

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

:15:12.:15:19.

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

:15:20.:15:37.

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

:15:38.:15:42.

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

:15:43.:15:47.

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

:15:48.:15:51.

:15:52.:15:59.
