The Daily Mail headlines that hospitals are bracing for five


days of chaos following the junior doctors' strike.


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.
