Rotten to the core, aged gospel being suspended after the inquest.
He led the police's defence during the inquest, he has been suspended.
He was due to retire in six months, so this will not have a catastrophic
impact on his career. I'm not sure it will satisfy people as a
suitable, severe enough punishment. When people had been suspended from
these jobs, they still carry on receiving their salaries. In effect,
he will receive his salary, he will not have to work for it. In six
months, he will retire, which he will do anyway, and live on a fat
pension. This is concerning, the tactics that the police used in the
inquest. They are still sticking to the suggestion that some of these
fans were drunk, that they were ticketless and were rowdy and
whatever. As to be the same, if this will be the only head that rolls as
a result of all of this, it will not be enough. They have taken this
approach even though they have previously apologise or released a
notional apology in 2012, during one of the many interminable enquiries
into Hillsborough that got nowhere. They then took this pugilistic,
confrontational approach with lawyers cross questioning victims'
families as if they were criminals. Why do you think that is? Did the
believe the original lies, or were they being forceful about those lies
to give the more credence? The technical explanation, I report this
what I have read, the police said they had to do this because if the
repeated the apology chewing the inquest, it would be prejudicial.
That seems completely daft. Does that wash for you, to be questioned
it doesn't sound appropriate to me. Andy Burnham has been very
influential. Theresa May was very thorough, going through, line by
line, for the record in Parliament, the judgment as handed down
yesterday by the jury, which is incredibly moving in this past this
of the language. Andy Burnham has been emotional in the best sense of
the term, this rotten to the core is him saying in Parliament the actions
of South Yorkshire Police. It seems to be institutionally rotten as a
police force, back from 1989, and the lies that were said then, all
the way through to the actions now. Their potential criminal actions
being -- criminal prosecutions with the CPS. There is a sense of those
who stood by and saw this happen and try to placate the families, they
need to have their day in court. Let's move on to the Guardian.
Joining forces on BT you. All kinds of strange bedfellows are going on
as a result of this campaign. The Remain campaign believe that these
handshakes across the divide will help unify people. There was a
picture of them laughing together. I do not pay the -- do not think the
play well to the narrative. They think it is an assumption -- and
establishment stitch up. They brought in Obama as well. Surely it
is only Mr Bush would stitch up if you believe none of the three
London-based mainstream parties represent POTUS. -- reticent voters.
If you want to... In the terms of the Labour Party, a lot want to exit
as opposed to remain. For all three political leaders to be in favour of
remaining seems like a bit of a stitch up because so many mothers of
their -- so many members of their party want to leave.
What do you think of the opposing coalition? I prefer to think of the
exit coalition as being between Kate Hoey on the Labour side, Douglas
Carswell, who is pro-immigration, and people like Boris Johnson and
Michael Gove, John Whittingdale, it Ian Duncan Smith. It is a rebel
alliance. The Death Star being the Remain campaign. It is odd that the
former leader of the TUC should join forces with David Cameron to say
that wages should fall if we leave the EU when Sir Stuart Rose, the
notional leader of the Britain is stronger in Europe campaign, even
though they swept under the carpet since the launch of a campaign,
admitted that wages would probably fall or go up if we leave the
European Union because, with less immigration, they'll be less
downward pressure on wages. It might help our trade deficit as well. The
one bit where I disagree ... The one bit where I agree with you is if we
have got this alliance, why place it in the Guardian? It will be
interesting to do a straw poll of Guardian readers, it will be the
strongest redoubt of Stay voters as it is. Bracing for five days of A
chaos. A lot of people didn't going to hospital yesterday. There will be
problems for quite a while, one would have thought. The more I read
about the strike and the more I about the two sites, the more I
don't understand why are both so entrenched. I wish we could have
some form of conciliation service whose processes and final
conclusions are completely binding from the moment you enter into them.
It just seems to me... I know you think this might play well for
Jeremy Hunt, but the NHS has all been a potentially... Just as the
economy and immigration has all been difficult for Labour, the NHS has
been difficult for the Conservatives. To pick a fight on
the end the chess -- the NHS by design than by accident, and I think
this one is more by accident, it seems to not be clever politics. Is
this playing well for Jeremy Hunt? I don't they have picked a fight on
this deliberately. It was part of the manifesto and they don't think
the anticipated that junior doctors would make such a big deal about it.
I think we can see that public support for the junior doctors is
softening a little bit. In a poll in January, 66% of people supported the
doctors. Earlier this week, another had fallen to something like 57%.
Because of the decision to have an all-out strike, including emergency
services. And redrawing the labour from emergency rooms as well.
Stories like this on the front page of the Mail about the chaos in A
that will immediately follow, because people will have stayed away
if they possibly could during the two-day strike, and they will now go
to A in the next couple of days and that will unleash chaos and
there could be some unpleasant incidents. What was interesting that
in choosing number of hospitals is they got on better as a result of
having more consultants on, filling in, because they are making
decisions more quickly. That is part of the argument from junior doctors,
they are the only ones there at the weekend. The consultants are
available, they are on the end of the phone as opposed to being in
there in person. Decisions are made more slowly and therefore you have
an increase in a number of incidents and bass. They are still working a
seven day week. In addition, you have had this total crisis in A
over the last many months and years, with people using A as a
substitute for the GP practice. That comes around to the question of GP
practices, and a lot of them are already, but they should be more
available for longer hours. I don't know why that requires people to
work longer hours, but a lot of people in so many different walks of
life work flexible shift hours, but it does not mean longer howlers. The
problem that doctors face is that Jeremy Hunt has called their bluff.
I think they are to blink when they threatened an all-out strike like
this, he has not blink and it is not clear what they can do because if
they be shoe more industrial action, they will lose support. Under the
Independent. The Shadow cabinet forcing a U-turn as the suspend the
member. It is doubly damaging for Jeremy Corbyn, there have been an
other scandals involving anti-Semitism in various Labour
Party figures, constituency association and chairpersons and so
on. This one is the most serious of all because she re-tweeted some
particularly unpleasant remarks about transporting Israelis to
America, and that being a solution, using blank was like that, to the
conflict in the Middle East. This is the most serious so far, she was a
secretary to John McDonnell, the Shadow Chancellor. It is doubly bad
because Jeremy Corbyn initially wanted to just give her a wrist slap
and insist that she resign her job but remain holding onto the Labour
whip. He was busy overfull by the manners of his Shadow cabinet who
thought she should be more firmly reprimanded. This does seem to be a
problem that Labour has, a lot of those people who had views, they
would say pro-Israeli, not anti-Israel, or try to put Israel
down specifically, the Wessing P being pro-Palestinian, a lot of
those people are backing Jeremy Corbyn. That is proven to be a
problem. They would argue, as you were posing there in your critical
question, you can differentiate between the two. It gets incredibly
difficult. Jeremy Corbyn, unashamedly, has always been, as
long as he has been a left-wing rebel Labour MP, very much at the
core of the pro-Palestinian protest movement. It is an absolute
minefield now for him, as Toby has pointed out, the inappropriateness
of all of those tweets. There is more around people's past statements
and that sort of thing. You can forge a foreign policy that can say
some stern things about Israeli settlement policies, but you have to
choose a language incredibly carefully. I will have to leave it
there. Thank your for coming in to look at some of the paper. More
coming up now. Time for the weather.
