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

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Matt McAllester, who's Editor of Newsweek Europe and

:00:17.:00:20.

Melanie Eusebe who is the founder of Black British Business Awards.

:00:21.:00:29.

The Times leads with the allegations of anti-Semitism

:00:30.:00:32.

It says Labour front-benchers are threatening to resign over Jeremy

:00:33.:00:36.

The i newspaper quotes Diane Abbott as saying the Labour Party faces

:00:37.:00:43.

The Telegraph highlights a survey from doctors which says

:00:44.:00:58.

thousands of patients are issued with Do Not Resuscitate notices

:00:59.:01:00.

The Financial Times leads with the story of one of

:01:01.:01:04.

the world's most powerful investment funds, which is planning to lead

:01:05.:01:07.

The Mail claims that a British army interpreter from

:01:08.:01:10.

Afghanistan has killed himself after being refused asylum in the UK.

:01:11.:01:13.

The Express says a heatwave is on the way after a Bank Holiday

:01:14.:01:16.

The Guardian leads with a warning about the increasing availability

:01:17.:01:19.

The Mirror leads on SATs tests in primary schools.

:01:20.:01:27.

It says parents will pull six-year-olds out of tests

:01:28.:01:29.

Let's begin with the i. And what is happening with the Labour Party

:01:30.:01:46.

after Orana mulcher this week with claims of anti-Semitism within the

:01:47.:01:58.

ranks -- tumultuous. They are saying the party is heading towards

:01:59.:02:02.

elections on Thursday, which could turn things around after the defeat

:02:03.:02:07.

of the general election last year, but no, it doesn't look like it will

:02:08.:02:11.

be that straightforward. It doesn't, and the more that people like Diane

:02:12.:02:16.

Abbott talk about the coup and a leadership challenge, they have to

:02:17.:02:19.

be careful what they are talking about. They may get one. Her point

:02:20.:02:29.

is that the disaffected, bitter Blairites who are still in the

:02:30.:02:34.

Labour Party, who are minority, but they would lose such a thing. She is

:02:35.:02:39.

trying to scare people off, but it creates the impression of a party

:02:40.:02:43.

that is coming apart. Today we saw that Jeremy Corbyn was out saying

:02:44.:02:50.

the Labour Party denounces racism, but for some people he hasn't at

:02:51.:02:55.

that quickly enough. For some he has not acted quickly enough but he was

:02:56.:03:02.

very definitive in his statement against any racism, anti-Semitic

:03:03.:03:05.

behaviour or language, the tolerance level was zero. For me, if the

:03:06.:03:11.

tolerance level has been instated as zero, and very clearly there have

:03:12.:03:21.

been, they have put measures in place to say, you should not say

:03:22.:03:24.

these things, why are people trying to step down? It is one thing to

:03:25.:03:29.

say, maybe you were a bit too slow. But it is another to say, I'm going

:03:30.:03:34.

to step down because he didn't act fast enough. Really? Surely that is

:03:35.:03:39.

what leadership is about. You have to take decisive action and really

:03:40.:03:44.

mean it, the emphatic about it and recognise what is going wrong. Today

:03:45.:03:48.

there is no problem before this independent enquiry is even

:03:49.:03:56.

reported... If I was to apply that philosophically to every battle our

:03:57.:03:58.

government is involved with, including with gender and ethnicity

:03:59.:04:04.

in general, then no one has that did definitively and no one has said

:04:05.:04:08.

anything. For us to start jumping around about this, splitting up the

:04:09.:04:13.

party in regards to this, it seems ludicrous to me. If we look at the

:04:14.:04:27.

Times, buried in the text we have the Israeli Ambassador to London

:04:28.:04:32.

saying that Jeremy Corbyn needs to distance himself and disown groups

:04:33.:04:38.

like and Hamas, which don't recognise Israel's right to exist.

:04:39.:04:43.

Jeremy Corbyn has been too close to them in the past -- Hezbollah. He

:04:44.:05:01.

has been associated with groups like Hamas and Hezbollah, because to the

:05:02.:05:08.

left they are freedom fighters. To the others they are terrorists, and

:05:09.:05:12.

they still call for the destruction of the state of Israel. That is

:05:13.:05:16.

unpalatable to the Israelis and too many indeed. Chips are coming off

:05:17.:05:27.

the menu, it says at the bottom. What is happening? There seems to be

:05:28.:05:31.

a move by the government to make you feel a bit clearer. Sajid Javid is

:05:32.:05:44.

saying that people are confused about tipping in restaurants. There

:05:45.:05:49.

are too many means for us to beginning service charges as

:05:50.:05:51.

customers and we don't know where it too. It is unlikely that it gets to

:05:52.:05:55.

the staff, where the customer intends it to go. Last summer it

:05:56.:05:59.

seemed clear that if he wanted to wait staff to get money, give them

:06:00.:06:05.

some cash. That's right, and I think some people are almost double

:06:06.:06:08.

tipping without realising what they're doing, because they don't

:06:09.:06:12.

look at the bill and there is something on the bottom, and then

:06:13.:06:15.

they leave a few pounds for the excellent service they are getting.

:06:16.:06:19.

That is wonderful, but it is just a lack of clarity, it is very opaque.

:06:20.:06:25.

Children aged six in school strikes. That makes it sound extremely

:06:26.:06:29.

militant, but it is their children who will be pulling them out of

:06:30.:06:35.

school in some cases. Why is that? These are these new, tougher tests.

:06:36.:06:43.

The shift is that these tests and testing of six and seven -year-olds

:06:44.:06:47.

used to happen, but it was quiet and there wasn't a big public brouhaha,

:06:48.:06:52.

and the children didn't really know they were being assessed. Now they

:06:53.:06:58.

do, and the Mirror describes young children who are having nightmares

:06:59.:07:02.

and worrying about it in the ways we all worry about our A-levels and

:07:03.:07:07.

finals, and that this should not be happening to six and seven

:07:08.:07:12.

-year-olds. Potentially 30,000 people will be taking their children

:07:13.:07:15.

out of school and taking them on educational trips instead. I wonder

:07:16.:07:20.

how it would be to lower the temperature in schools so children

:07:21.:07:23.

are not so aware of what they are doing. I think it would be very

:07:24.:07:27.

difficult to change the culture in schools because of the way the

:07:28.:07:32.

education system is structured. Schools are not only performing

:07:33.:07:41.

against one another. It would be a deep cultural change that wouldn't

:07:42.:07:46.

change easily. You don't mind children this age being tested?

:07:47.:07:50.

Science I do mind children being in the battles of adults. A test is

:07:51.:08:01.

fine, but they should be able to go to it and take it and walk away. To

:08:02.:08:06.

take on the battles of their parents, I don't agree with that.

:08:07.:08:12.

Mourning over the rise of danger drugs in prison. These are synthetic

:08:13.:08:18.

versions of drugs like cannabis having an impact in prisons --

:08:19.:08:27.

warning. This is violence and suicides, and one of the things

:08:28.:08:30.

about these drugs is that unlike traditional cannabis, natural

:08:31.:08:34.

cannabis, you can't smell them when they are being smoked. The prison

:08:35.:08:39.

guards can't tell when prisoners are abusing these drugs, and some of

:08:40.:08:43.

them give off noxious chemicals, and some prison guards are suffering as

:08:44.:08:48.

a result. The thing that struck me is that these drugs are getting

:08:49.:08:53.

dropped by drones, catapulted over fences. I don't know how prisons are

:08:54.:08:58.

supposed to stop drones flying in with packets of synthetic cannabis.

:08:59.:09:04.

Know, and whether they come from? They are obviously made in our lab

:09:05.:09:11.

somewhere. Synthetic cannabis is the most common of these new

:09:12.:09:17.

psychoactive substances. What they are doing in the prisons, because

:09:18.:09:22.

you can't smell them or detect them, prisoners are more exposed to

:09:23.:09:27.

them and it has led to deaths and serious illnesses. It has also led

:09:28.:09:35.

to self harm, so now there is a call to say, to give a warning. Let's

:09:36.:09:46.

look at the business pages. We don't always get all the way into page 41.

:09:47.:09:53.

The only way is up for the oil price. An anticipation of rising

:09:54.:09:58.

investment as markets recover. The suggestion here is that non- OPEC

:09:59.:10:07.

members are going to drive up the price of oil by producing less.

:10:08.:10:12.

There has been a glut of oil on the world market, with Saudi Arabia and

:10:13.:10:16.

OPEC countries pumping aggressively to try to put the American shale

:10:17.:10:22.

industry out of business. You have to be making $60 a barrel

:10:23.:10:26.

essentially to make shale work, and it hasn't been working. So, the

:10:27.:10:31.

predictions are that in the next 12 months oil will go up again. But the

:10:32.:10:38.

non- OPEC countries are pretty small group, aren't they? That is why I

:10:39.:10:44.

didn't understand exactly where the article was coming from, because if

:10:45.:10:50.

most of our supply comes from OPEC countries then it should hardly

:10:51.:10:55.

impact the price if supply from non- OPEC countries drops. Norway wealth

:10:56.:11:04.

fund set to launch crackdown on high executive pay. This is a huge oil

:11:05.:11:11.

fund in Norway. The fact that it is in Norway rather than Saudi Arabia

:11:12.:11:17.

took me by surprise. What they are proposing, we should look at the

:11:18.:11:20.

little backdrop for this. What they are proposing is that this boil

:11:21.:11:27.

sovereign fund, they phoned approximately 1.3% of every listed

:11:28.:11:35.

company in the world. Their influence is large and fast. They

:11:36.:11:42.

are saying they will start a public campaign, first by issuing paper,

:11:43.:11:47.

but then by pointing out when the executive pay situation is out of

:11:48.:11:57.

control in their eyes. This is unseen, it is a new level of

:11:58.:12:01.

corporate governance and we have never seen this type of enforcement

:12:02.:12:07.

done by shareholders. There is so much criticism of multinationals and

:12:08.:12:10.

international business these days, because they say it is too difficult

:12:11.:12:14.

to get action that will span the world. This is a way that it might

:12:15.:12:20.

start. Yes, and I think the Norwegians are seeing the tide

:12:21.:12:26.

turned a little bit with global opinion on executive pay. This kind

:12:27.:12:30.

of thing doesn't really happen in Scandinavia, the gap is much

:12:31.:12:37.

narrower in pay. Here is the back page of the Guardian. Leicester take

:12:38.:12:43.

a step closer to title dream. Now it is all down to the Spurs. I was

:12:44.:12:48.

hoping we could be celebrating tonight, but no. Rennie area's team

:12:49.:12:57.

missed out with a 1-1 draw against Manchester United -- Ranieri. It is

:12:58.:13:05.

an amazing story. It is an amazing story. Why are they getting an

:13:06.:13:11.

American to comment on sport? I love sport, crime and athlete myself and

:13:12.:13:18.

I love... This is so pure. Pure capability, nothing to do with large

:13:19.:13:21.

investments will be backing, but everything to do with heart. This is

:13:22.:13:27.

the dream of the premiership, of all the little kids who watch it. I

:13:28.:13:32.

think it is amazing. My family support the Spurs so they won't like

:13:33.:13:36.

me saying all of this, but I would love to see Leicester win because I

:13:37.:13:40.

think it would say so much for football in the Premier League and

:13:41.:13:42.

bring back some of the integrity that may have been lost with other

:13:43.:13:49.

incidences. We need Tottenham not to beat Chelsea tomorrow. Tottenham

:13:50.:13:57.

haven't beaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in 20 years. 20 years is

:13:58.:14:01.

nothing when you haven't ever won the league. There has been a lot of

:14:02.:14:10.

generosity, I have read, towards Leicester, from people who ardently

:14:11.:14:13.

support other teams. It has brought out a great spirit in people. I

:14:14.:14:18.

think it is one season blip, I'm sorry to say. Leicester have

:14:19.:14:24.

benefited from the fact that all the great big teams have been terrible

:14:25.:14:27.

this year, and I don't think that will happen next year, sorry. Let's

:14:28.:14:36.

enjoy it while it lasts. Enjoy your bank holiday, I hope it is not a

:14:37.:14:39.

washout. Up next, The Film Review.
