Hello, welcome to our look ahead to what The Papers will be bringing us.

:00:17.:00:28.

Welcome to you both. Thank you for coming in. Tomorrow's front pages

:00:29.:00:32.

then. Make a start with the Times. It leads with the allegations of

:00:33.:00:40.

anti-Semitism in the Labour Party. Says Labour frontbenchers are

:00:41.:00:46.

threatening to resign. The I paper quotes Diane Abbott. The Telegraph

:00:47.:00:51.

high lights a survey from doctors which says thousands of patients are

:00:52.:00:57.

issued with do not resuscitate without their families realising.

:00:58.:01:03.

The finance shall time with a crackdown on executive pay. The Mail

:01:04.:01:08.

claims a British Army interpreter has killed himself after being

:01:09.:01:12.

refused asylum in the UK. The Daily Express says a heatwave is on the

:01:13.:01:17.

way after a bank holiday wash out, naturally. The Guardian leads with a

:01:18.:01:21.

warning about the increasing availability of synthetic drugs in

:01:22.:01:25.

prisons. The mirror leads on sats tests in primary schools. It says

:01:26.:01:29.

parents will pull six-year-olds out of test as part of a nationwide

:01:30.:01:32.

protest. We will start with the FT and the

:01:33.:01:37.

issue of executive pay, which a lot of people have said has got out of

:01:38.:01:41.

control, is too high. Norway might be coming to the rescue. The wealth

:01:42.:01:49.

fund is set to launch crackdown on high pay, $870 billion investor on

:01:50.:01:53.

the look out for a target. First of all, what do we mean by this wealth

:01:54.:02:00.

fund? It is called a sovereign fund? This is where Norway is huge oil

:02:01.:02:04.

wealth ends up. It sits there, and they have done it in a kind of

:02:05.:02:09.

fascinating way. They own little bit, 1.3% on average of every lived

:02:10.:02:15.

company on the planet, which gives them a kind of unprecedented

:02:16.:02:18.

influence, potentially which they have never wielded before, they are

:02:19.:02:22.

emplying they are looking round, and they are looking for a company whose

:02:23.:02:25.

executives they will start pressuring, over executive pay. Why

:02:26.:02:32.

now? Well, executive pay has as the article says, has increased scrutiny

:02:33.:02:37.

over the last two years. And now it is, this is a whole new level of

:02:38.:02:40.

corporate governance, where you know, they are going to step up and

:02:41.:02:45.

say and point fingers and say your level of executive pay is

:02:46.:02:50.

unacceptable, so it is enforcement of good corporate governance to be

:02:51.:02:55.

fair. We don't like what the company is doing, then we have a right to

:02:56.:02:59.

point fingers and say this is wrong, and so, you know, the problem is

:03:00.:03:05.

with Norway, is that they, Norway Scandinavian countries are

:03:06.:03:09.

well-known for the kind of the small gap between the top levels of the

:03:10.:03:13.

organisation and the bottom levels, and so, what is worrying for them is

:03:14.:03:18.

that you know, they don't want to be enforcing their national policy on,

:03:19.:03:21.

they want to be seen as enforcing their national policy on, you know,

:03:22.:03:25.

all of the listed companies of the world, but on the other hand, we

:03:26.:03:28.

know that executive pay has got out of hand. They regard it now as a

:03:29.:03:34.

global issue, it seems. It is. Let us not forget they own chunks of

:03:35.:03:38.

these companies so they don't want necessarily to be what they

:03:39.:03:41.

presumably feel is over paying. But they want to target. They do. Lots

:03:42.:03:46.

of companies round the world will be worrying they could be it If I was a

:03:47.:03:58.

CEO I would hope the other 8099 ones were in their sights not me. We know

:03:59.:04:04.

it is not BT. The FT points out they voted in favour of that, so now for

:04:05.:04:08.

them to flip the script a bit and say, we are going to be targeting

:04:09.:04:13.

company, it will be interesting to see who Che choose first and how

:04:14.:04:17.

they will attract publicity. Haven't row got to get the shareholders

:04:18.:04:22.

round you? Depends on the corporate, depends on their voting structures

:04:23.:04:25.

and things and the like it would be good to bring everyone else onboard

:04:26.:04:29.

round them. They don't have to. They don't. Let us look at the Telegraph.

:04:30.:04:36.

Families in dark as doctors let patients die. DNR notices left on up

:04:37.:04:42.

to 40,000 people each year without their relatives being told. We don't

:04:43.:04:47.

quite understand where the misunderstanding is coming from, do

:04:48.:04:51.

we? Who is imposing these notice, and who it is who doesn't know. You

:04:52.:04:57.

are right. For me, I would say it is unclear from the article who is

:04:58.:05:04.

actually issuing the DNR on these 40,000 people each year, without

:05:05.:05:07.

loved ones being told. So, what I have gathered from the article,

:05:08.:05:12.

though, is that it, no, I am not even going to lie. I have to be

:05:13.:05:16.

honest about this one. This article I find the title of it is

:05:17.:05:20.

inflammatory, I can't quite get my finger on who is making the

:05:21.:05:25.

decision, for, to issue the DNR, is it the doctor, the nurse, the

:05:26.:05:28.

family, is the family not saying anything? Is the patient deciding

:05:29.:05:33.

and not issuing instructions to the family? So I am not quite clear but

:05:34.:05:38.

it does seem inflammatory, I get scared as soon as I say doctors are

:05:39.:05:42.

doing something they are not telling me about. We don't know where it is

:05:43.:05:48.

coming from. What we can say is there is a reassessment happening in

:05:49.:05:52.

end of life issues because the Liverpool care path away as it was

:05:53.:05:58.

known has been discredited where food and water was withdrawn and it

:05:59.:06:02.

could be a distressing end for people. It has been established.

:06:03.:06:05.

That is is right. Could be a distressing end for people. It has

:06:06.:06:08.

been established. That is is right. This -- abolished. That comes from

:06:09.:06:12.

the Royal College of Physicians says one in five families was not

:06:13.:06:17.

informed a DNA order had been put in place, equivalent to 40,000

:06:18.:06:20.

patients. Exactly right, we don't know who is making the decisions.

:06:21.:06:25.

Authorities at one stage are cited at the decision makers here. But we

:06:26.:06:30.

are not sure. But what seems to be the case, is that the Royal College

:06:31.:06:35.

of Physicians have identified a problem in the system where families

:06:36.:06:39.

an patients, are not being consulted suchly. It seems -- sufficiently. It

:06:40.:06:48.

seeps tiply round end of life issues I is difficult for people to talk

:06:49.:06:51.

about. It is so distressing people shy away from talking about it. They

:06:52.:06:56.

shy away from talking about it. It is not just about the DNA. It

:06:57.:07:01.

discussing end of life situation where people are rushed into hop and

:07:02.:07:07.

dying in the corridors, locking at people who are terrified nurses who

:07:08.:07:11.

aren't able to do things because they have to follow -- follow a

:07:12.:07:15.

process and there are care homes who don't know about the nursing care

:07:16.:07:20.

and they panic and call 999. It feel like end of life care as a process

:07:21.:07:24.

is broken and we need the look closely at it. The Telegraph. Tips

:07:25.:07:33.

coming off the Menuhin ewe. A often there is is a discretionary service

:07:34.:07:37.

charge on your bill. People don't notice it, and discretionary means

:07:38.:07:40.

you don't have to paint but people do. It doesn't feel discretionary

:07:41.:07:46.

when it is there and you feel micely to cross it off. It is not a good

:07:47.:07:51.

way to end a meal. The Government is coming and saying this has to change

:07:52.:07:57.

on two levels. First of all, you can't slip this in, it has to be

:07:58.:08:02.

volleyball trair and discretionary, there is a second part, which is we

:08:03.:08:08.

are seeing that the waitering, the servers are no necessarily getting

:08:09.:08:13.

the tips and so, the Government is saying, look, there Meades to be

:08:14.:08:17.

transparency about who gets this. We were talking about that last summer,

:08:18.:08:21.

it emerged that some companies were creaming off the tips that customers

:08:22.:08:25.

thought went to their staff. Exactly. You flow know, this issue

:08:26.:08:30.

is so close to my heart. I put myself through school being a server

:08:31.:08:34.

and I, it is so confusing for customers. Between the card machine

:08:35.:08:40.

asking you if you want an extra tip, then on the bill there is a service

:08:41.:08:44.

charge, then there is the front of staff where you know, sop of the

:08:45.:08:48.

tips situations they want to split it between the front of house staff,

:08:49.:08:52.

the servers and the chefs in back, so there is a pool system. So

:08:53.:08:56.

frankly I don't know where my tip is going, whatever channel I use to

:08:57.:09:02.

issue it. But I do know that the servers aren't getting it. Their

:09:03.:09:06.

wages aren't enough. I am glad they are looking at it. It St not fair

:09:07.:09:09.

and it is not transparent to the customers where their money is

:09:10.:09:15.

going. Let us look at the Times. Corbyn faces front bench exodus over

:09:16.:09:18.

anti-Semitism. This has been headline news all week. It could

:09:19.:09:24.

trigger resignations, yet more pressure for Jeremy Corbyn, various

:09:25.:09:27.

people coming to his rescue over the weekend saying no, everything is

:09:28.:09:31.

fine. We have this inquiry under way, it is a few bad apple But it is

:09:32.:09:38.

a smear campaign. I am not going to say it is a smear campaign but I

:09:39.:09:42.

would say it feels like we are looking for it. It feels like people

:09:43.:09:47.

are looking for MrCorbyn to misstep or to not do things in the way they

:09:48.:09:53.

want. It doesn't, there is something not right, he has made the claim or

:09:54.:09:58.

he has made the statement they are fighting anti-Semitism and racism in

:09:59.:10:02.

any form, and it is not tolerated within the Labour Party, and it is

:10:03.:10:09.

fantastic that Len McCluskey the Unite union chief, he say it is a

:10:10.:10:16.

smear campaign. Diane Abbott says it is a smear campaign, however, there

:10:17.:10:20.

are some things that I would say that MrCorbyn probably, you know, in

:10:21.:10:26.

some of the situations in regards to the calling the Hamas and Hezbollah

:10:27.:10:31.

friends, then I can see where the Israeli ambassador is like, wait,

:10:32.:10:34.

what is going on here, in light of everything that is happening at

:10:35.:10:38.

home, was this the right thing to do? Some of his associations of the

:10:39.:10:42.

past are being scrutinised again and the suggestion that this independent

:10:43.:10:46.

inquiry he has set up should have come a lot sooner. He should have

:10:47.:10:51.

been more emphatic about what ever steps he has chosen to take That is

:10:52.:10:57.

right. So much is about the time that is involved, the slowness, the

:10:58.:11:02.

Corbyn reacted, the other Labour MPs and grandee waps have been silenced

:11:03.:11:07.

so far have been ale slow in responding and there shouldn't be

:11:08.:11:11.

any delay in responding to racism, and it is something that shouldn't,

:11:12.:11:16.

you shouldn't have to spend 48-hours thinking about it. Yes, investigate

:11:17.:11:21.

it, and conduct inquiries, but when someone like Ken Livingstone has

:11:22.:11:25.

said what he said, what is the delay? I think that created a huge

:11:26.:11:31.

problem. Let us move on to The Mirror. Children aged six in school

:11:32.:11:36.

strikes it is not the children who are striking, but it is parents who

:11:37.:11:41.

want to pull their children out on mass from classes so they don't have

:11:42.:11:46.

to take these sat, because children are aware even at this age, of they

:11:47.:11:51.

are going to be tested and it is even if it doesn't matter to their

:11:52.:11:55.

parents, it matters to thele zoo, it matters to the children. They are,

:11:56.:12:02.

in The Mirror story we hear of very stressed out children, having

:12:03.:12:06.

nightmares and so the parents are taking matters into their own hands

:12:07.:12:09.

and taking them out of school tomorrow and taking them on

:12:10.:12:14.

educational trips. They could be fined ?120 for doing this, but the

:12:15.:12:18.

suspicion is that schools will look the other way.

:12:19.:12:21.

In the States do they bother testing kids so early? Yes, I think all

:12:22.:12:26.

round the world they do test children, you know, from the age of

:12:27.:12:31.

four, really, as soon as they enter into school system. But I think it

:12:32.:12:37.

is the onus that is placed on the results that put the enormous amount

:12:38.:12:40.

of pressure on the children, so you should be testing children, you

:12:41.:12:45.

should be making sure that you know, that the goals that we are setting

:12:46.:12:49.

for them, we have global standards as well as UK standards, that we

:12:50.:12:53.

should be meeting. However, what is happening here, we are translating

:12:54.:12:56.

the individual performance of a Chile into you know the performance

:12:57.:13:00.

of the school, the performance of our education system, and frankly we

:13:01.:13:04.

should be locking at children saying, Hay, let us teach you this,

:13:05.:13:07.

you haven't got it yet? Let us teach you some more. Children are allowed

:13:08.:13:12.

to be in that strait so they are not sleeping and they are

:13:13.:13:16.

seven-year-old. They feel like failures at seven. It is shocking.

:13:17.:13:21.

Of course I do agree with testing per se, but I think that the problem

:13:22.:13:28.

is much deeper than just you know, having test, tests are a good thing

:13:29.:13:32.

and we should be teaching children how to take them but they shouldn't

:13:33.:13:35.

feel this pressure on them to perform. They should be just be

:13:36.:13:40.

tested. Let us move on and talk about football yet again. I was

:13:41.:13:45.

hoping to wear a blue frock tonight, to celebrate and to drape the table

:13:46.:13:49.

with a very large and vulgar flag that was blue and white but it is

:13:50.:13:55.

still wrapped up back at home. Because Leicester haven't quite done

:13:56.:13:59.

it. Here is the back page of the Guardian. It is all down to Spurs at

:14:00.:14:06.

Chelsea, and there will be a lot of Leicester porters urging Chelsea on

:14:07.:14:09.

tomorrow, which is probably a first for a lot of them. A very strange

:14:10.:14:14.

thing. It will be a bit anti-climactic if Leicester aren't

:14:15.:14:18.

on the pitch when they win the league, which could well happen

:14:19.:14:25.

tomorrow. But the thing I love in the Guardian story is Ranieri, he

:14:26.:14:29.

won't even by a were of it, because he is going off to visit his mother

:14:30.:14:33.

in Italy tomorrow, she is 96, and he is going to have lunch with her and

:14:34.:14:38.

he will be on the plane when the result comes in. So, presumably, I

:14:39.:14:44.

am going to guess the captain on that flight will let him know.

:14:45.:14:49.

Somebody might tip him off. How much has passed you by Melanie, as

:14:50.:14:53.

possibly not being the most ardent football fan. No, my brother is a

:14:54.:14:58.

Manchester United fan and the rest of my fan are Spurs fans, so, but

:14:59.:15:04.

what I love about this though, just the sheer sports story of the

:15:05.:15:07.

underdog, of the, you know, sometimes we get jaded with the

:15:08.:15:12.

stories of you know, high paid athletes and well funded teams, and

:15:13.:15:18.

Leicester is the story that can inspire any person who is inspired

:15:19.:15:21.

by competition and pure true sport for the love and fun of it. That is

:15:22.:15:26.

why even though yes, family please, I apologise, but I almost want to

:15:27.:15:30.

see them win and it would have been lovely to have that pitch moment

:15:31.:15:33.

where they can jump round. It will say so much for the sport. It could

:15:34.:15:38.

be they are sitting at home on or on a plane and they win it without

:15:39.:15:41.

having to kick a ball tomorrow. If that happen, you will see basically

:15:42.:15:46.

every person in Leicester end up at the King Power stadium and in the

:15:47.:15:51.

pubs and they may not sleep. But the issue s I think a lot of people dare

:15:52.:15:56.

not believe they are going to do it until it is there. Many a slip

:15:57.:16:01.

between cup and lip. That is right. This is not guaranteed. I mean they

:16:02.:16:06.

don't have a supereasy way into the end of the season, and Spurs are on

:16:07.:16:12.

fire. You just never know. It is one thing to win the title, last year,

:16:13.:16:17.

you might not realise this they were not far off relegation, so the turn

:16:18.:16:21.

round is more remarkable. But then next year you stay in the Premier

:16:22.:16:24.

League and all the money that brings and the attention, but you have the

:16:25.:16:28.

pressure, of not being quite the underdog you were. It is like Eddie

:16:29.:16:34.

Redmayne after his Oscar, we love an underdog over here, I want them to

:16:35.:16:39.

win. I want the see them flourish. And as a Liverpool supportersome Am

:16:40.:16:42.

a Liverpool supporter. You still want to see them win. It has been a

:16:43.:16:49.

long painful couple of decades. It has been 132 years for Leicester, so

:16:50.:16:54.

you have our sympathy. That is it for The Papers for this hour but

:16:55.:16:59.

Matt and Melanie will be back at 11.30 for another look at The

:17:00.:17:07.

Papers, if you have any comments, please do so,

:17:08.:17:13.

Coming up next, Meet the Author.
