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

:00:15.:00:17.

With me are John Kampfner, Director of Creative Industries,

:00:18.:00:20.

and the Associate Editor of the Spectator and Vote Leave

:00:21.:00:23.

The Independent pictures the commemorations in Liverpool

:00:24.:00:30.

for the 96 that were unlawfully killed in the Hillsborough disaster.

:00:31.:00:32.

It also writes that the Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn was forced

:00:33.:00:35.

by the Shadow Cabinet to suspended Bradford MP Naz Shah

:00:36.:00:40.

After pressure from the Shadow Cabinet.

:00:41.:00:44.

The Metro leads with the resignation of Chief Constable David Crompton

:00:45.:00:46.

from South Yorkshire Police over allegations he tried to play

:00:47.:00:49.

down his force's role in the Hillsborough disaster

:00:50.:00:51.

The Guardian says the South Yorkshire Police and crime

:00:52.:00:54.

commissioner Alan Billings lost confidence in his Chief Constable

:00:55.:00:56.

after speaking to family members' of the Hillsborough victims.

:00:57.:00:58.

New Day writes of a backlash against gambling websites

:00:59.:01:00.

following the death of a graduate who killed himself because

:01:01.:01:03.

The Express says a cure for Alzheimer's Diease could be

:01:04.:01:06.

America's Federal Reserve may raise US interest rates in

:01:07.:01:09.

the coming months, say the Financial Times,

:01:10.:01:11.

after worries about the global economy eased.

:01:12.:01:15.

The Daily Mail headlines that hospitals are bracing for five

:01:16.:01:18.

days of chaos following the junior doctors' strike.

:01:19.:01:20.

Rotten to the core, aged gospel being suspended after the inquest.

:01:21.:01:45.

He led the police's defence during the inquest, he has been suspended.

:01:46.:01:53.

He was due to retire in six months, so this will not have a catastrophic

:01:54.:01:58.

impact on his career. I'm not sure it will satisfy people as a

:01:59.:02:08.

suitable, severe enough punishment. When people had been suspended from

:02:09.:02:12.

these jobs, they still carry on receiving their salaries. In effect,

:02:13.:02:16.

he will receive his salary, he will not have to work for it. In six

:02:17.:02:21.

months, he will retire, which he will do anyway, and live on a fat

:02:22.:02:27.

pension. This is concerning, the tactics that the police used in the

:02:28.:02:31.

inquest. They are still sticking to the suggestion that some of these

:02:32.:02:35.

fans were drunk, that they were ticketless and were rowdy and

:02:36.:02:41.

whatever. As to be the same, if this will be the only head that rolls as

:02:42.:02:45.

a result of all of this, it will not be enough. They have taken this

:02:46.:02:48.

approach even though they have previously apologise or released a

:02:49.:02:53.

notional apology in 2012, during one of the many interminable enquiries

:02:54.:03:01.

into Hillsborough that got nowhere. They then took this pugilistic,

:03:02.:03:06.

confrontational approach with lawyers cross questioning victims'

:03:07.:03:12.

families as if they were criminals. Why do you think that is? Did the

:03:13.:03:18.

believe the original lies, or were they being forceful about those lies

:03:19.:03:22.

to give the more credence? The technical explanation, I report this

:03:23.:03:27.

what I have read, the police said they had to do this because if the

:03:28.:03:35.

repeated the apology chewing the inquest, it would be prejudicial.

:03:36.:03:39.

That seems completely daft. Does that wash for you, to be questioned

:03:40.:03:43.

it doesn't sound appropriate to me. Andy Burnham has been very

:03:44.:03:52.

influential. Theresa May was very thorough, going through, line by

:03:53.:03:58.

line, for the record in Parliament, the judgment as handed down

:03:59.:04:02.

yesterday by the jury, which is incredibly moving in this past this

:04:03.:04:13.

of the language. Andy Burnham has been emotional in the best sense of

:04:14.:04:17.

the term, this rotten to the core is him saying in Parliament the actions

:04:18.:04:23.

of South Yorkshire Police. It seems to be institutionally rotten as a

:04:24.:04:30.

police force, back from 1989, and the lies that were said then, all

:04:31.:04:34.

the way through to the actions now. Their potential criminal actions

:04:35.:04:44.

being -- criminal prosecutions with the CPS. There is a sense of those

:04:45.:04:50.

who stood by and saw this happen and try to placate the families, they

:04:51.:04:53.

need to have their day in court. Let's move on to the Guardian.

:04:54.:05:03.

Joining forces on BT you. All kinds of strange bedfellows are going on

:05:04.:05:14.

as a result of this campaign. The Remain campaign believe that these

:05:15.:05:20.

handshakes across the divide will help unify people. There was a

:05:21.:05:29.

picture of them laughing together. I do not pay the -- do not think the

:05:30.:05:37.

play well to the narrative. They think it is an assumption -- and

:05:38.:05:48.

establishment stitch up. They brought in Obama as well. Surely it

:05:49.:05:55.

is only Mr Bush would stitch up if you believe none of the three

:05:56.:06:00.

London-based mainstream parties represent POTUS. -- reticent voters.

:06:01.:06:17.

If you want to... In the terms of the Labour Party, a lot want to exit

:06:18.:06:27.

as opposed to remain. For all three political leaders to be in favour of

:06:28.:06:31.

remaining seems like a bit of a stitch up because so many mothers of

:06:32.:06:38.

their -- so many members of their party want to leave.

:06:39.:06:48.

What do you think of the opposing coalition? I prefer to think of the

:06:49.:06:55.

exit coalition as being between Kate Hoey on the Labour side, Douglas

:06:56.:07:03.

Carswell, who is pro-immigration, and people like Boris Johnson and

:07:04.:07:09.

Michael Gove, John Whittingdale, it Ian Duncan Smith. It is a rebel

:07:10.:07:27.

alliance. The Death Star being the Remain campaign. It is odd that the

:07:28.:07:40.

former leader of the TUC should join forces with David Cameron to say

:07:41.:07:45.

that wages should fall if we leave the EU when Sir Stuart Rose, the

:07:46.:07:50.

notional leader of the Britain is stronger in Europe campaign, even

:07:51.:07:53.

though they swept under the carpet since the launch of a campaign,

:07:54.:07:58.

admitted that wages would probably fall or go up if we leave the

:07:59.:08:03.

European Union because, with less immigration, they'll be less

:08:04.:08:10.

downward pressure on wages. It might help our trade deficit as well. The

:08:11.:08:18.

one bit where I disagree ... The one bit where I agree with you is if we

:08:19.:08:23.

have got this alliance, why place it in the Guardian? It will be

:08:24.:08:27.

interesting to do a straw poll of Guardian readers, it will be the

:08:28.:08:35.

strongest redoubt of Stay voters as it is. Bracing for five days of A

:08:36.:08:48.

chaos. A lot of people didn't going to hospital yesterday. There will be

:08:49.:08:51.

problems for quite a while, one would have thought. The more I read

:08:52.:08:59.

about the strike and the more I about the two sites, the more I

:09:00.:09:02.

don't understand why are both so entrenched. I wish we could have

:09:03.:09:13.

some form of conciliation service whose processes and final

:09:14.:09:16.

conclusions are completely binding from the moment you enter into them.

:09:17.:09:22.

It just seems to me... I know you think this might play well for

:09:23.:09:28.

Jeremy Hunt, but the NHS has all been a potentially... Just as the

:09:29.:09:36.

economy and immigration has all been difficult for Labour, the NHS has

:09:37.:09:39.

been difficult for the Conservatives. To pick a fight on

:09:40.:09:45.

the end the chess -- the NHS by design than by accident, and I think

:09:46.:09:48.

this one is more by accident, it seems to not be clever politics. Is

:09:49.:09:56.

this playing well for Jeremy Hunt? I don't they have picked a fight on

:09:57.:10:00.

this deliberately. It was part of the manifesto and they don't think

:10:01.:10:02.

the anticipated that junior doctors would make such a big deal about it.

:10:03.:10:10.

I think we can see that public support for the junior doctors is

:10:11.:10:19.

softening a little bit. In a poll in January, 66% of people supported the

:10:20.:10:22.

doctors. Earlier this week, another had fallen to something like 57%.

:10:23.:10:29.

Because of the decision to have an all-out strike, including emergency

:10:30.:10:36.

services. And redrawing the labour from emergency rooms as well.

:10:37.:10:40.

Stories like this on the front page of the Mail about the chaos in A

:10:41.:10:45.

that will immediately follow, because people will have stayed away

:10:46.:10:49.

if they possibly could during the two-day strike, and they will now go

:10:50.:10:54.

to A in the next couple of days and that will unleash chaos and

:10:55.:10:58.

there could be some unpleasant incidents. What was interesting that

:10:59.:11:01.

in choosing number of hospitals is they got on better as a result of

:11:02.:11:06.

having more consultants on, filling in, because they are making

:11:07.:11:10.

decisions more quickly. That is part of the argument from junior doctors,

:11:11.:11:16.

they are the only ones there at the weekend. The consultants are

:11:17.:11:20.

available, they are on the end of the phone as opposed to being in

:11:21.:11:23.

there in person. Decisions are made more slowly and therefore you have

:11:24.:11:27.

an increase in a number of incidents and bass. They are still working a

:11:28.:11:34.

seven day week. In addition, you have had this total crisis in A

:11:35.:11:42.

over the last many months and years, with people using A as a

:11:43.:11:46.

substitute for the GP practice. That comes around to the question of GP

:11:47.:11:52.

practices, and a lot of them are already, but they should be more

:11:53.:11:57.

available for longer hours. I don't know why that requires people to

:11:58.:12:04.

work longer hours, but a lot of people in so many different walks of

:12:05.:12:09.

life work flexible shift hours, but it does not mean longer howlers. The

:12:10.:12:14.

problem that doctors face is that Jeremy Hunt has called their bluff.

:12:15.:12:19.

I think they are to blink when they threatened an all-out strike like

:12:20.:12:23.

this, he has not blink and it is not clear what they can do because if

:12:24.:12:26.

they be shoe more industrial action, they will lose support. Under the

:12:27.:12:31.

Independent. The Shadow cabinet forcing a U-turn as the suspend the

:12:32.:12:40.

member. It is doubly damaging for Jeremy Corbyn, there have been an

:12:41.:12:44.

other scandals involving anti-Semitism in various Labour

:12:45.:12:50.

Party figures, constituency association and chairpersons and so

:12:51.:12:53.

on. This one is the most serious of all because she re-tweeted some

:12:54.:12:59.

particularly unpleasant remarks about transporting Israelis to

:13:00.:13:06.

America, and that being a solution, using blank was like that, to the

:13:07.:13:09.

conflict in the Middle East. This is the most serious so far, she was a

:13:10.:13:18.

secretary to John McDonnell, the Shadow Chancellor. It is doubly bad

:13:19.:13:22.

because Jeremy Corbyn initially wanted to just give her a wrist slap

:13:23.:13:25.

and insist that she resign her job but remain holding onto the Labour

:13:26.:13:34.

whip. He was busy overfull by the manners of his Shadow cabinet who

:13:35.:13:37.

thought she should be more firmly reprimanded. This does seem to be a

:13:38.:13:42.

problem that Labour has, a lot of those people who had views, they

:13:43.:13:49.

would say pro-Israeli, not anti-Israel, or try to put Israel

:13:50.:13:55.

down specifically, the Wessing P being pro-Palestinian, a lot of

:13:56.:14:01.

those people are backing Jeremy Corbyn. That is proven to be a

:14:02.:14:04.

problem. They would argue, as you were posing there in your critical

:14:05.:14:10.

question, you can differentiate between the two. It gets incredibly

:14:11.:14:18.

difficult. Jeremy Corbyn, unashamedly, has always been, as

:14:19.:14:23.

long as he has been a left-wing rebel Labour MP, very much at the

:14:24.:14:29.

core of the pro-Palestinian protest movement. It is an absolute

:14:30.:14:35.

minefield now for him, as Toby has pointed out, the inappropriateness

:14:36.:14:44.

of all of those tweets. There is more around people's past statements

:14:45.:14:48.

and that sort of thing. You can forge a foreign policy that can say

:14:49.:14:57.

some stern things about Israeli settlement policies, but you have to

:14:58.:15:00.

choose a language incredibly carefully. I will have to leave it

:15:01.:15:04.

there. Thank your for coming in to look at some of the paper. More

:15:05.:15:09.

coming up now. Time for the weather.
