Welcome to look ahead to what the papers will be bringing tomorrow.


Welcome back both of you. The front pages, the EgyptAir flight seeing


the terrorist attack is the most likely cause. The Telegraph says a


fool privacy law has been created after the Supreme Court ruled an


injunction with the married celebrity can stand. The metal beads


with the report of Britain Richard Osman who is feared to have died in


the plane crash. The Guardian says 100 new child sex abuse cases are


being referred to the police every month. Fears over aviation safety in


the wake of the EgyptAir disaster. And the times charts the final


movements of the flight. And the FT leads with the German


company Bayer making a takeover bid for the agricultural company


Monsanto. And let's begin with how the times


are reporting this plane crash because a very shocking headline,


passengers spinning to their deaths. Terrorists suspected. And then it


talks about this strange manoeuvre that the plane seems to make. This


is a really horrific story. You don't want to jump to premature


conclusions but like lots of people are now seeing, it looks like it


possibly could have been mechanical but the likelihood is a terrorist


problem, more likely. Incredibly distressing, 66 people on board and


the thing I think people will be looking at is the fact that Egypt's


has had already issues with security, there was a plane and the


issue of a man directing a flight which eventually led to Cyprus but


it was from Egypt. There are one issues about security in Egypt and


the US use and I think one of the worries is that Egypt is a country


that really relies on to those and that will be draining away,


something that you only will make it more susceptible to terrorist


attacks. The whole thing is deeply worrying. You wonder why they stuck


their necks out and said it was a terrorist attack when Elliott and


the day they seems to have found some wreckage and others said they


haven't. It is upsetting as it is for family and friends? At this


point nobody knows and as far as we can tell there is a plane in the sea


but you interviewed an expert and he said earlier on, how do you tell if


a particular piece of wreckage that you find in the sea is from the


plane which has disappeared today or from another plane or something else


completely. It was the Egyptian Minister who was giving a press


conference this afternoon saying we think it is probably a terror attack


rather than mechanical failure at this point. Presumably he is basing


that on some kind of expertise. Maybe mechanical failure would mean


communication... They don't want to look like they are somehow


complacent in terms of trying to suppress the fact it is a terrorist


attack. All the early evidence is pointing to that and the air that


the stage where they don't want to look as if they are covering it up.


Let's look at the Guardian. Huge scale of child sex abuse shocks


police. 100 new cases every month referred for investigation. In


Australia when they have this commission, they had so many people


come forward and it looks like it could be the same here. The police


officer in charge predicts that by 2020 the police will be


investigating 200,000 cases of historic child sex abuse. It makes


you wonder that the police will have time to do anything else by that


time, especially given cuts and police budgets. This enquiry is a


statutory enquiry with power to bring witnesses. It is a big deal.


Obviously a couple of false starts when British cheer people resigned


because they felt they were close to institutions and individuals who


might be being investigated. We now have Zealander in charge and it


seems to be full throttle. What this is highlighting is that for decades


we had a culture of victims, particularly young victims, not


being believed and so not coming forward. What we are going to have


to see is a big cultural shift in terms of... It has been happening in


terms of how the police deal with these cases and how the criminal


justice system deals with these cases but quite often, it has been


somebody any position of authority and power and normally a young


person who has been unclear or who is vulnerable, there has been a lot


of power play, but the classic feature has been the victim not


being believed and that will have to be a big cultural shift. And it


would imply people feel more confident about coming forward. The


Daily Telegraph, judges create UK privacy law. This is the Supreme


Court upholding an injunction against a celebrity. Here we have a


ruling from these judges that the injunction should stand which is not


what the newspaper wanted. Why does that it to the creation of a law?


Because the Supreme Court, and the clue is in the name, what they say


is law until another Supreme Court decision or parliamentary decision,


an act of Parliament overrules it, so once these judges have spoken,


the word is law and what it said in the leading judgment today was that


the privacy of the individual should trump... They are two writes in the


European rights Convention which are competing, the right to freedom of


expression in the right to privacy and family law. The judge said that


the right to privacy is trumps the right to freedom of expression


unless there is a public office which can't be properly taken out,


somebody in the public eye who can do their job properly because of


what is going on because of their private life, or if they have


created a misconception in the public mind about their private


life. Some people might say that getting married, as this coupled


dead, creates an impression on the public mind that they will be


faithful to each other. But privacy and the right to a family life, who


is to codify what shapes that family life because people do all sorts of


things. I think personally society has moved on and we are not that


interested in these kinds of stories. Newspapers sell as a result


of it. I think what is interesting is whether UK politicians will want


to change their sense that you because we had a huge brouhaha over


leathers and a couple of years ago. One of the things that came out of


that was the working to keep this type of law away from statute and


Parliament, so it will be interesting to see whether they be


asked to go back and amend that because you could open it up to


other press regulation coming in and that would open up a row. The other


thing that is significant is this only applies in England and Wales


and in Scotland, for example, the original injunction and it doesn't


apply so anyone can find out. And that is one of the great


distinctions in the sense you have broadcasters, newspapers playing by


the rules, but then there is jurisdiction beyond that in terms of


digital, and that is where the law is very difficult to enforce and


privacy. We could talk about this longer but we must move on. Let's go


back to the times, the Shadow Minister for Europe called a voter


racist and she has had to come out very quickly with an apology. I


can't personally explain why. I think there are two rules of


politics at the moment, don't talk about Hitler and adored Colville


says Rhesus. That is quite basic. -- don't call voters racist. These are


the two camps and it will get heated and ugly in the remaining weeks. The


The main campaign are focusing on jobs and growth and the economy.


People are focusing on the economy and it is really ramping up. Pat


Glass has been caught out, the resource such thing as off the


record if you are politician and Gordon Byron famously learned that.


-- Gordon Brown. Emily Thornberry lost her position in the shadow can


do it because of the treat. We have to be able to have sensible


discussion about immigration without it either feeling into dog whistle


racism but at the same time not dismissing fears about racism. The


person she spoke to said was a horrible racist and never wanted


comeback. She said she was talking about a particular family, not


immigrants entirely. This voter was talking and apparently about a local


family believes to be on benefits. As if that is some kind of crime in


and of itself. I think it is interesting, this is the third time


that a prominent Labour politician has been caught out effectively


smearing at the voters that the support to be representing. They


seemed to be sneering at the house with a flag of St George when


campaigning against Ukip, Gordon Brown with the bigoted woman, and


now Pat Glass, and the Labour Party in particular need to use the


phrase, get a grip, on how... Can I say in hard defence, I don't think


anyone can question how working-class background is. But


just to put that in another perspective, I spoke two days ago to


Nigel Farage, a perfectly reasonable debate, and he took it into an early


on immigration which had a nasty racial undertone, so both sides have


got to be quite careful. He isn't here to explain what he meant so I


will move on. The Guardian, a group of celebrities on the front page,


most of them actors and actresses, or they are all actors. Vivian


Westwood and Hillary Mantell, why are they on the only front-page?


They have written a letter to the Daily Telegraph in favour of


remaining in the European Union and as the Telegraph front-page's story


points out, that might not have the effect that they want it to have,


because the views of so-called luvvies may have great currency in


Metropolitan London but out in the real world, the places Pat Glass is


going back to, wherever they are, people can be quite contrary about


being told what to do by people with lots of money. Or might they look at


these people and say they trust them as much as a politician. You have


people like Ian Botham coming out, but the serious business case and


the creative industries in this country are doing really well in


Britain and they rely on that and do well around the world but


particularly the European market, so I think Bill is probably a business


case they are alluding to. Most of the cultural traffic economically as


transatlantic. Finally, back to the Muirfield when in's members ban.


This is the golf club that has said that the carry on insisting they


will not let women become members, they can just be guests visitors and


now Peter Alice has agreed with them! It is depressing and they need


to move on. -- Peter Alliss. You have a situation with a female First


Minister and the reason they give is the said women golfers play too


slowly and with the room lunch. Come on! That was the rationale from the


club. I think Peter Alliss has said... Insisting they would never


want to pay the fees anyway, these women! These women! I love it! My


view on this simple, it is a private club and that its members want to


keep women out, just as if a female club wanted to keep men out, that is


their right. It is not a decision agree with, it is a decision I


object to, but that is the right, and if then the nation wants to take


the open away from them that is the thing to do. And that is the right


thing to do. As Sinead O'Connor said, I do not want what I cannot


have. That is the papers for tonight, can we roll up the autocue?


Thank you. The pages are all online and you can see them on the website.


Goodbye. You can also watch us because tonight's edition is on that


page also and also on I player. Coming up next. The weather.


Good evening. The weather has been unsettled over the last few days


with fluctuation in the temperature around rain at times. Some heavy


thunderstorms to end the day in Belfast and once the year
