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

:00:12.:00:15.

With me are the entertainment editor at Huffington Post, Caroline Frost -

:00:16.:00:22.

and the parliamentary journalist Tony Grew.

:00:23.:00:26.

The Metro leads on what it calls "the three million pound own goal"

:00:27.:00:33.

by the former policeman who's company caused the security alert

:00:34.:00:36.

According to the Telegraph, the European Commission has said

:00:37.:00:42.

terrorists are more likely to attack European countries as a result

:00:43.:00:46.

of the deal to allow Turkish citizens to travel without visas.

:00:47.:00:51.

The Express says a new report from the campaign group

:00:52.:00:54.

Migration Watch UK claims mass immigration is costing British

:00:55.:00:58.

The i leads on a warning from the Ofsted that thousands

:00:59.:01:08.

of pupils in England are being taught in unsafe

:01:09.:01:10.

The Times says students who suffer poor teaching at English

:01:11.:01:16.

universities will have their fees reduced in an attempt

:01:17.:01:20.

This evening's celebrations in Leicester are pictured

:01:21.:01:26.

The paper also reports on claims that a study linking toxic air

:01:27.:01:30.

and deprived schools in London wasn't published.

:01:31.:01:34.

And news that the American businessman Warren Buffett has taken

:01:35.:01:38.

a stake in Apple worth over a billion dollars -

:01:39.:01:41.

So there we are. With beginning with the Daily Telegraph. They have the

:01:42.:01:59.

story about these free Turkey terror threat, quoting the European

:02:00.:02:03.

Commission as saying that increase mobility into the Schengen area of

:02:04.:02:07.

criminals and terrorists losses and of Turkey all who are foreigners

:02:08.:02:13.

based in Turkey. That is a direct quote from the European Commission.

:02:14.:02:18.

Yes, from a European Commission document. Turkey and the European

:02:19.:02:21.

Union did a deal in which Turkey said it would help to reduce the

:02:22.:02:26.

flow of migrants coming into the European Union and people trying to

:02:27.:02:33.

be trafficked across into Greece will be sent back to Turkey. In

:02:34.:02:38.

return, in the European Union said it would grant 90 days of free

:02:39.:02:43.

European visas. Turkish people will have to have biometric passports and

:02:44.:02:49.

Britain is not part of the Schengen zone, the free movement zone. It

:02:50.:02:54.

does not directly affect the United Kingdom. But it has raised concerns

:02:55.:02:58.

about the EU in which immigration is the number one issue. We had the

:02:59.:03:04.

former head of MI6, Sir Richard Dearlove, saying that it was

:03:05.:03:11.

important for the UK to stay in the EU and he says that the deal done

:03:12.:03:17.

with Turkey is perverse, compared to storing gasoline next to a fire.

:03:18.:03:21.

This is next to apocalyptic claims from the remaining that if they

:03:22.:03:27.

don't stay in, Britain will miss out in ?200 million of year -- a year of

:03:28.:03:44.

trade. When you said Romanians, I thought you said remaining is, not

:03:45.:03:52.

people from the Remain campaign! Tony walks the corridors of power

:03:53.:03:58.

every day and I'm the person on the street. I am a person on the street

:03:59.:04:04.

and I see the day of choice looming. It may come down to something like

:04:05.:04:09.

this. To me, it feels as if we don't know as much as the experts, and we

:04:10.:04:20.

think how -- who we can trust. For some people it may be Boris, for

:04:21.:04:24.

others, it may be Mark Carney. You still don't know? I read things like

:04:25.:04:31.

this and I think OK, make sense. But in the same article, two opposite

:04:32.:04:34.

assertions! Let's move on to the eye. This story is also on the front

:04:35.:04:41.

page of the Telegraph. They are calling it secret school scandal.

:04:42.:04:54.

Save thousands of people are being taught in unsafe conditions.

:04:55.:04:58.

Hundreds of children being at risk of being radicalised. The Education

:04:59.:05:08.

Secretary has had a letter saying that there is a much bigger problem.

:05:09.:05:13.

When we say illegal school, we mean these schools are unregistered. They

:05:14.:05:21.

are in warehouses and so on. I find it inconceivable that people would

:05:22.:05:24.

send their children to a school like this. One part of me says that

:05:25.:05:30.

people can educate their children where they want to. I went to a

:05:31.:05:34.

Catholic school, all this and that was registered! It was by diggers

:05:35.:05:42.

school. But I question why parents would do this. Why would you send

:05:43.:05:46.

your child to announce a school that weren't given any convocations? The

:05:47.:05:49.

schools do not have proper curriculum is, they are not going to

:05:50.:05:57.

be in a position to give you GCSEs. According to the Telegraph, they are

:05:58.:06:01.

saying one in three of the schools is run by Muslims groups where

:06:02.:06:03.

children are hidden from the authorities. You must question the

:06:04.:06:08.

motivation of a teacher wanting to be part of such a school and a

:06:09.:06:13.

parent thinking this is a good idea. You wonder what the other two in

:06:14.:06:19.

three are doing? We hear about fear mongering about extremism being

:06:20.:06:22.

given to young children but what else is going on? And how doesn't

:06:23.:06:28.

work on a day-to-day basis? How are the children being transported

:06:29.:06:30.

around and nobody sees being educated? Lets go onto the next

:06:31.:06:36.

story in the Metro, the big story over the weekend. This huge security

:06:37.:06:41.

scare at Old Trafford. Tens of thousands of fans evacuated from the

:06:42.:06:46.

ground. The security boss who has admitted it was his mistake because

:06:47.:06:51.

he left this pipe bomb, and he is pictured holding up this replica

:06:52.:06:59.

pipe bomb, used as part of the exercise, he is an ex-policeman. It

:07:00.:07:06.

is after the mistake. I feel for the man. He has properly had a really

:07:07.:07:10.

long and successful career. He is the boss and all he will be

:07:11.:07:15.

remembered for, every time he walks into the pub, perhaps a bit of a

:07:16.:07:21.

cause celebre, nobody was hurt, fortunately but it's a massive own

:07:22.:07:29.

goal. Yes, as the Metro says. We are lucky with a blunder, that's the

:07:30.:07:37.

thing. But obviously it was a scary time at the weekend. You do feel

:07:38.:07:42.

sorry for him Elizabeth? And for the fans, we interviewed some of them

:07:43.:07:46.

earlier who had travelled from all around the world, never been to see

:07:47.:07:49.

Manchester United before and won't be able to see this game when it is

:07:50.:07:54.

replayed. I just want to say a couple of things. He came on TV and

:07:55.:07:59.

confessed. Respect he is not trying to do a corporate blog. He said it

:08:00.:08:06.

was his mistake and he was sorry. I know I have inconvenienced thousands

:08:07.:08:09.

of people. And we should take comfort that this was found and

:08:10.:08:14.

sparked a security alert. That shows the levels of security that we have

:08:15.:08:19.

at sports stadiums. And the evacuation happened in an orderly

:08:20.:08:23.

fashion so we are prepared. So in a sense although it was eight terrible

:08:24.:08:31.

mistake, it was a drill and it panned out well. We should be

:08:32.:08:37.

pleased the police can do an evacuation on that scale. Busy it's

:08:38.:08:43.

terrible and is the first time -- it's terrible for the fans. How

:08:44.:08:50.

often do you somebody say, the mistake is entirely mine?

:08:51.:08:57.

Respected him for that. Perhaps not respective universities, some of

:08:58.:09:00.

whom are being told to raise their standards or they might have to cut

:09:01.:09:04.

their fees. We have known for a while that students who are paying

:09:05.:09:08.

thousands of pounds for their university education, a lot of them

:09:09.:09:11.

are saying they are not getting value for money. Tutorials and

:09:12.:09:15.

lectures are not up to is gradual not long enough with their tutors?

:09:16.:09:25.

Yes, walking the corridors of power, I sashay, rather than walk! But we

:09:26.:09:30.

have been told that the government's White Paper on higher education was

:09:31.:09:36.

going to be radical. This means that university will face market forces

:09:37.:09:40.

that they have been shielded from. Universities will not be allowed to

:09:41.:09:45.

increase their fees above ?9,000 a year unless they are assessed as

:09:46.:09:49.

being excellent or outstanding. My concern is that if you are a student

:09:50.:09:55.

in your second year and you'll university has been downgraded, it

:09:56.:09:59.

will have a significant effect on you and your prospects. But creating

:10:00.:10:04.

an office for students to publish detailed information and properly

:10:05.:10:08.

assessed universities is radical. Given the commercialisation of

:10:09.:10:15.

universities, this is inevitable. Caroline, nurses being trained to

:10:16.:10:21.

cover the junior doctors' jobs? Odyssey, a new step because of the

:10:22.:10:26.

unprecedented pressure on the NHS. -- obviously. The government and the

:10:27.:10:31.

NHS are coming up with new schemes to plug any gaps. Boris Johnson is

:10:32.:10:40.

busy talking about the gaps -- at the queues NAND. Nurses will be

:10:41.:10:44.

given a lot of support. There will be a fast track group of nurses who

:10:45.:10:48.

will be given special training so that they can take tests and monitor

:10:49.:10:53.

the decisions that traditionally have belonged to the young doctors

:10:54.:10:55.

who have had years of training. The FT has a story on Uber, they

:10:56.:11:17.

have done very well but new taxi companies numbers have fallen this

:11:18.:11:23.

year. According to the GMB, at least ten private hire companies close

:11:24.:11:29.

every month. So established companies are suffering as well as

:11:30.:11:34.

start-ups. My view is that technology is providing a service

:11:35.:11:37.

that people want. Every problem that you have had booking a taxi is taken

:11:38.:11:43.

away by this app. You can't help but be a fan if you live and work in

:11:44.:11:47.

London and you want to get from A to B and you don't have cash. If you

:11:48.:11:51.

don't know where you're going, that problem goes away, and if you don't

:11:52.:11:54.

know how long you're going to wait, that problem goes away. I can't not

:11:55.:11:59.

be a fan of such a slick service. But do you feel sorry for the

:12:00.:12:07.

rivals? Yes, it is like watching all the chains on the high street and

:12:08.:12:11.

independent cafes closing as a result. So is it market forces? Yes.

:12:12.:12:17.

They give the consumers what they want. We talk about London taxi

:12:18.:12:21.

drivers having the knowledge and knowing everywhere, but there is a

:12:22.:12:25.

place for that. I have seen black cabs recently that have things in

:12:26.:12:30.

the back saying I only take cash and this is 2016, that is not

:12:31.:12:36.

acceptable. Finally, let's end with the Telegraph again. I would never

:12:37.:12:39.

have guessed this, but going to church doesn't just feed the soul,

:12:40.:12:45.

it makes you live longer! I'm not sure if that is because of God or

:12:46.:12:49.

because... I haven't read the story very closely! What it says is that

:12:50.:12:56.

they did a study of 74,000 women over a 16 year period and regular

:12:57.:13:02.

churchgoers were 33% less likely to die of over that period of time. I

:13:03.:13:06.

think there could be a whole range of factors. Being a member of a

:13:07.:13:15.

church means you are part of a community so they could be a lot of

:13:16.:13:19.

factors which are not quite as religious as this story implies. And

:13:20.:13:25.

perhaps if you are a regular churchgoer, you are less likely to

:13:26.:13:28.

be going out and hitting it hard on a Saturday night. There is less

:13:29.:13:34.

likely to be a causative route. So will you be going to church more

:13:35.:13:43.

often? No. Tony and Caroline, thank you both so much. We will see you

:13:44.:13:50.

again later on. We will be back at 1130 PM for another look at the

:13:51.:13:55.

front pages. For now, thanks to my guests. Goodbye.

:13:56.:13:59.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
