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

:00:00.:00:19.

With me are Claire Cohen, who's the Deputy Women's Editor

:00:20.:00:24.

at the Telegraph, and author and foreign correspondent

:00:25.:00:26.

Tomorrow's front pages starting with...

:00:27.:00:34.

Today's protests by parents and children over primary school

:00:35.:00:36.

tests in England is the main story for the i.

:00:37.:00:38.

The Times also features those demonstrations -

:00:39.:00:40.

but the main story is the potential impact of an inquiry

:00:41.:00:43.

being launched by the government into the collapse of BHS.

:00:44.:00:47.

Writing in the Telegraph, the Chief Rabbi claims

:00:48.:00:49.

Labour has a "severe" problem with anti-Semitism.

:00:50.:00:53.

Meanwhile, the Guardian leads on warnings from pollsters

:00:54.:00:56.

to critics of Jeremy Corbyn that a leadership coup is "impossible".

:00:57.:00:59.

News that the dollar reached a 15-month low today

:01:00.:01:02.

According to the Express, the German government

:01:03.:01:07.

is proposing a joint European military command headquarters.

:01:08.:01:12.

The New Day leads with one of our main stories -

:01:13.:01:15.

the conviction of a mother for killing 18-month-old

:01:16.:01:17.

And The Metro leads with evidence from the trial of a man accused

:01:18.:01:21.

of killing a retired solicitor in West Sussex last summer.

:01:22.:01:28.

Claire, we will start with the i. Leave our kids alone. A great

:01:29.:01:41.

picture on the front of the i. Presumably they have a day off

:01:42.:01:45.

school and they look very happy. This is tens of thousands of parents

:01:46.:01:51.

who took their kids out of school yesterday because of the maths and

:01:52.:01:56.

English test. 45,000 parents have signed a petition asking for kids to

:01:57.:02:03.

be kids and not put under extreme pressure. Their parents are saying

:02:04.:02:07.

their children are coming home having nightmares about these tests.

:02:08.:02:13.

It seems pretty extreme, doesn't it? You have children learning extreme

:02:14.:02:17.

bits of grammar and adverts and things we don't know and they are

:02:18.:02:22.

only having in our PE a week, it does not seem quite right. -- and --

:02:23.:02:35.

only one hour of PE a week. Pint-size protesters calling for the

:02:36.:02:41.

Education Secretary to resign. It is indicative of a greater crisis. The

:02:42.:02:49.

level of anxiety among teenagers, self harm, depression, all these

:02:50.:02:53.

kinds of disorders are spiralling out of control. There is a great

:02:54.:02:56.

deal of anxiety among teachers as well and of course parents. The

:02:57.:03:01.

government has not managed to provide the reassuring tone that

:03:02.:03:04.

would allay some of that. Part of the reason the government says it

:03:05.:03:08.

wants to bring the tests in is because we are way behind in terms

:03:09.:03:13.

of league tables with other countries, Singapore, South Korea,

:03:14.:03:19.

China and so on, but we know what the incidences are of depression,

:03:20.:03:23.

self harm and anxiety among those children as well, they have to go

:03:24.:03:27.

through rigorous testing at such an age. The keywords there were league

:03:28.:03:32.

tables. This is what this is about, is it? It is. You have to wonder

:03:33.:03:40.

about the teaching to prepare these kids, is it doing them any good or

:03:41.:03:44.

is it just making schools look good. I don't know how much it is helping

:03:45.:03:49.

them. Surely it would be better to teach them how to cope with stress

:03:50.:03:54.

and anxiety. Do you have children? No. Would you have taken them out? I

:03:55.:04:07.

think I would. They went out and had a laugh. They are only six and

:04:08.:04:17.

seven. The Times, must try harder, Minister fails school test. This is

:04:18.:04:21.

Nick Gibb getting a question on the world at one. Ministers being put in

:04:22.:04:33.

this position, George Osborne was asked a few questions back in 2012,

:04:34.:04:39.

he refused to answer, back in 2014 it was, and Nick Gibb was also asked

:04:40.:04:45.

a question concerning grammar. Is it unfair? It is an old tricks, but it

:04:46.:04:52.

does seem to work every time, it is a rather good one. In fairness I am

:04:53.:04:58.

not sure I could have told the difference between a preposition and

:04:59.:05:01.

a subordinating conjunction in this context live on television. I hope

:05:02.:05:06.

we will not try anything like that now. Actually... It is always funny

:05:07.:05:13.

to see ministers squirming like this. Maybe we need to go to a more

:05:14.:05:24.

Scandinavian kind of model where children are happier as a result.

:05:25.:05:29.

Politicians struggled to decide which their favourite biscuit is.

:05:30.:05:37.

Why not skewer them with an adverb. You are very feisty, U2, today! It

:05:38.:05:44.

just shows you do not need good grammar to be an MP. -- you two.

:05:45.:05:54.

This is the Chief Rabbi writing in the Telegraph tomorrow. This is the

:05:55.:05:59.

sixth day we have seen this Corbin story on the front pages of several

:06:00.:06:05.

newspapers. -- Jeremy Corbyn. He is probably facing one of the most

:06:06.:06:09.

dangerous days of his leadership ahead of the elections. I cannot

:06:10.:06:14.

understand why he has not got ahead of this story. This is a great story

:06:15.:06:18.

on the front of the Telegraph, it is not to be taken lightly. I am sure

:06:19.:06:22.

he has fought long and hard before taking the story to the next level.

:06:23.:06:27.

This is a test of his leadership and one he is failing at the moment.

:06:28.:06:31.

With two days to go until the election, a very important election,

:06:32.:06:35.

the first big test of his premiership. It has been said that

:06:36.:06:41.

this is a man who is having to deal with a huge problem within his

:06:42.:06:45.

party. According to some people he is not dealing with it very well. It

:06:46.:06:53.

does seem very clear that there is a problem,... He says there is no

:06:54.:06:58.

problem. The Telegraph says that 50 Labour members are suspended. This

:06:59.:07:05.

is also about the way that they are handling it. They should be

:07:06.:07:08.

hammering the government, junior doctors asked writing, we have got

:07:09.:07:14.

great amounts of resentment over austerity. At the moment it is kids

:07:15.:07:20.

gathering in parks who are doing the most of the running in terms of

:07:21.:07:23.

putting the government under pressure. -- junior doctors asked

:07:24.:07:30.

writing. The Chief Rabbi said he was taking to task those people who

:07:31.:07:33.

called this a smear. He has written in the Telegraph saying there is

:07:34.:07:37.

nothing more disheartening saying this is more about politics than

:07:38.:07:41.

substance. I feel he is trying to say this is not just about party

:07:42.:07:46.

politics, anti-Semitism is a problem in the Labour Party, but it is a

:07:47.:07:52.

wider problem in society. It is definitely not Ken Livingstone

:07:53.:07:54.

messing things up and getting his words wrong and those people, there

:07:55.:07:59.

are many within the Parliamentary Labour Party, who do not see Jeremy

:08:00.:08:03.

Corbyn as the kind of leader who will win in 2020 and they are

:08:04.:08:07.

seizing on this. You believe there is a deep-rooted anti-Semitic

:08:08.:08:11.

problem in the Labour Party? If the Chief Rabbi is worried about this,

:08:12.:08:15.

there does seem to be a problem. He is the one who should know. He

:08:16.:08:21.

singled out Len McCluskey, he said it was mood music and was playing

:08:22.:08:29.

down the row. There is clearly a case to answer. Is that the problem,

:08:30.:08:34.

have a Labour not taken this seriously and of? Mood music, and

:08:35.:08:41.

attempts to topple the leader, they are not tackling anti-Semitism for

:08:42.:08:48.

what it is. -- seriously enough? It was just one man mouthing off with

:08:49.:08:53.

Ken Livingstone, but by not acting quickly enough, Jeremy Corbyn has

:08:54.:08:57.

tied his fate to the results of this enquiry and the results of

:08:58.:09:00.

Thursday's collection and I think that is a dangerous position for him

:09:01.:09:06.

to be in. Anti-Semitism is probably a problem that predates him in the

:09:07.:09:10.

Labour Party, I ensure it is. Now his inaction is resting on his

:09:11.:09:16.

shoulders. -- I am sure it is. Corbin critics -- Jeremy Corbyn

:09:17.:09:24.

critics. Some suggestion that Margaret Hodge may be put forward as

:09:25.:09:29.

a stalking horse. Strategists are suggesting that his support within

:09:30.:09:34.

the party is huge. He has a mandate. The way that leaders are chosen at

:09:35.:09:40.

the moment, it will not change. There was some rather gleeful

:09:41.:09:43.

speculation towards the end of the Telegraph story that there may be a

:09:44.:09:46.

coup in the works, but that does seem to put the kibosh on that

:09:47.:09:51.

story. Look at the numbers from the polling, it will not happen. There

:09:52.:09:55.

is no one out there yet who has the kind of backing to mount a credible

:09:56.:10:00.

challenge. We all know the polls are not always correct as we saw in the

:10:01.:10:03.

last general election, but the Guardian have gone pretty hard on

:10:04.:10:10.

this. If this is the reason that the pollsters are putting forward that

:10:11.:10:13.

he has a massive mandate, then he will not be toppled before 2020.

:10:14.:10:20.

Well, the data in this story said he would win 43% of first preference

:10:21.:10:24.

which is produced Agri I suppose. I don't know how far we can trust the

:10:25.:10:30.

pollsters. -- which is pretty staggering I suppose. So far no

:10:31.:10:34.

alternative candidate has attracted anything like that kind of support.

:10:35.:10:38.

It is not that people do not want Jeremy Corbyn, but who would replace

:10:39.:10:45.

him? Is an attractive candidate came along, we may have a different

:10:46.:10:49.

story. There is one interesting point on the Guardian which is a

:10:50.:10:53.

story they do not have on the front page. I'm sure you followed in the

:10:54.:10:57.

last few months, they have been running this big campaign, keep it

:10:58.:11:01.

in the ground, the full source fuel industry. The BBC reported this

:11:02.:11:05.

morning that some environmentalists shut down a big coal mine in Wales

:11:06.:11:10.

as part of the big global movement against the fossil fuel industry and

:11:11.:11:14.

the way climate change is going it is disappointing that the papers are

:11:15.:11:19.

not giving it any backing. It is good to come on the programme and

:11:20.:11:23.

put the story out there that is not on the front page. LAUGHTER

:11:24.:11:33.

All right, OK, back to the Telegraph. Dumping about brains. --

:11:34.:11:43.

something. It is a trial to bring the brains of the dead back to life.

:11:44.:11:48.

It sounds like something out of a science fiction long. A company is

:11:49.:11:58.

buying 20 clinically dead patients with the families's consent. Who

:11:59.:12:06.

would you bring back? In the time we are living in it has to be David

:12:07.:12:10.

Bowie or prints. That is a good answer! -- Prince. I would bring

:12:11.:12:24.

back Jonathan Kaner, The Daily Mail astrologer. I was a fan of his

:12:25.:12:32.

columns. Somebody to campaign on climate change I suppose. To the

:12:33.:12:41.

bottom of the Guardian. This is a good story. This is something out of

:12:42.:12:50.

Les Miserables. A 36-year-old was convicted of stealing a small

:12:51.:12:56.

sausage and some cheese which he tucked into his supermarket bag

:12:57.:13:01.

alongside his breadsticks. He went through three court procedures at

:13:02.:13:06.

vast expense for the food items worth about ?4. Finally, Italy's

:13:07.:13:13.

Supreme Court has struck down the case and said that he is innocent.

:13:14.:13:19.

This is causing a stir in Italy, the idea that stealing food out of need

:13:20.:13:25.

is perfectly legitimate. It brings out a bigger issue of course. A big

:13:26.:13:30.

recession in Italy is biting and obviously a huge problem with

:13:31.:13:36.

corruption. People are saying if it takes trials and a court

:13:37.:13:41.

intervention to let a guy who has stolen a piece of cheese off the

:13:42.:13:45.

hook, what hope do we have of getting the Mafia? It is tempting to

:13:46.:13:52.

read the story on one level rather than praise humanity and take

:13:53.:13:57.

comfort in that. I agree with Matthew that it is a metaphor for

:13:58.:14:02.

Italy's economic woes, a country that we are told has a burden of ?60

:14:03.:14:09.

million in corruption every year. Would he get the same lenient

:14:10.:14:17.

treatment in British courts? Thank you for coming in to look at some of

:14:18.:14:19.

the stories. Many thanks. Before you go, these

:14:20.:14:22.

front pages have come The Daily Mail's headline

:14:23.:14:26.

is "Google Handed Patients' Files". The paper says a deal has seen

:14:27.:14:30.

1.6 million private records passed Don't forget, all the front pages

:14:31.:14:32.

are online on the BBC News website, where you can read a detailed

:14:33.:14:38.

:15:15.:15:19.

skies like this in Windsor. If that picture has got you dreaming of some

summer warmth, you
