was a long way tonight -- wait tonight.

The paper calls it the miracle of the gorilla boy.
As promised we are not starting with the EU referendum for a change, but
a story you could argue is closely related to it. It's on the Daily
Express and the Daily Mail and its migration, immigration. 700 more
drown crossing the mid-. They are conflating two very different
stories -- Mediterranean. Thousands of miles apart. What's interesting
is people smugglers did... I think there were 18 Albanians who made it
to tempt today. This is the immigration we should be worried
about Tashkent. We shouldn't just be worried about immigration from EU
countries -- Kent. It's people who come from not necessarily Albania
but from North Africa the Middle East who want to blow us up that we
should be worried about. The Daily Mail say there are only three
boats. We don't know anything about these people and what their
intentions are. They say Albanians, we won't discover until tomorrow
where they have come from because it takes a while. But they are now
saying... The Sun is saying, all people are saying, is they are
worried about jihadists coming across not across the Mediterranean
but the English Channel -- or people are saying. And the risks they are
taking, we know the channel is such a busy shipping lane. If we see
anything like what's happening in the Mediterranean in the English
Channel it could be catastrophic and it brings the problem close to
home. To an extent the government have wanted to leave the migrant
crisis in the Mediterranean to countries in the Schengen area. And
not take much responsibility for it. This is bringing it to our
shores and we rely on being an island to add extra protection. If
people start coming over from Calais in this risky way it's something the
government will have to tackle. It sounds like an inflatable boat that
began taking on water and that is why they were rescued. Terrifying.
There were only three patrol boats going around this country. You have
the National Crime Agency saying British small ports and marinas are
wide open to people smugglers, crime gangs and terrorists. Listed in the
Daily Mail, the other headline, Britain's wide-open borders -- this
is in. The coastguard chief says it is as bad as the Mediterranean. We
are in Island, which is meant to make us more secure and safe, but
with that comes an enormous coastline. We have a huge coastline
and masses of places around that coastline that boats can land. It's
a hard thing to detect. They are talking about three boats. The
geography and the coastline hasn't changed, just our assessment of how
safe we are. Nobody ever thought that people would come across the
Channel, which, as you say, is one of the biggest shipping areas in the
world. But less dangerous unless far than going across the
Mediterranean. -- and not as far. The chief coastguard in France says
this will become very dangerous and as the weather gets better, more
people will try. Yes, more people will take the risk. Let's return to
the EU referendum on the Guardian. A backlash we understand. We haven't
even had the vote yet. The government will not be concerned too
much with this story. People like Ledeen Doris and Andrew Bridge, who
have never been fans of Cameron -- Ledeen Doris. The PM's hopes of
reuniting the Conservative party have been dented. I think we knew
that anyway! I think they will be able to dismiss them. The suggestion
is these backbenchers can get and people together for a vote of
no-confidence in David Cameron. Even the Guardian say that. They are
quoting Andrew Bridge and. And when they said dented, if I was a
newspaper editor I would say damaged, dented is what you do to
your bumper! It's a story because Nadine Dorries was on TV this
morning and talking about it and saying that David Cameron would be
toast if he didn't get 60%, absolute nonsense. When the criticism comes
from people like that it is a different story. The Times, we have
a robot... Thaiday you to depose me, Cameron tells rebels -- I dare you
-- a rebuttal. Just guessing. It is bank holiday Sunday. He has probably
said it to someone. He has already said he's not going to stand again.
He is going in 2020. We know a leadership election is coming in the
next few years. Exactly. You need someone on either side to replace
him. The hard thing for Cameron is that people on the Remain side have
been damaged. Osborne was the most likely candidate to replace him. He
was damaged by Iain Duncan Smith resigning three days after the last
budget. To try to get that continuity is something that Cameron
will find tricky. Let's move onto a different subject, still on the
Times. Anti- drink lobby group up official safety limits,
controversial guidance that reduces public Theia. It wasn't so long ago
that it was recommended we all drank less than the official guidelines
were changed. Now it is 14 units, seven pints of beer over seven
days. When it talks about anti- drink lobby, several of these
lobbyists are doctors, like Sir Ian Gilmore, a long-time campaigner on
these issues. The danger with this limit of 14 units, and the unease
cabinet has felt, it is so low. Coming through the West End
tonight, there are thousands of people out of there having a good
time and will dismiss these guidelines out of hand -- solo. On
the other hand you have Dame Sally Davies, the Chief Medical Officer
for England, saying, as a woman, I reach for that glass of wine and I
wonder if it will affect me because they seem to think there has been
some research saying breast cancer and alcohol have some relation. We
are still at the foothills of this research. She has said this before
this report came out. It's like all these reports, you want to think
that the people behind it an bias on either side. Is this the alcohol
industry fighting back -- aren't bias. Is it temperance people? You
want to think people who are totally disinterested in the sale of alcohol
and only interested in our welfare are behind this. Many years ago when
these guidelines were first put forward, was there any actual
scientific basis for saying it was 21 units a week for men? They had to
come up with a number. I seem to recall they have to come up with a
number and it seemed as good as any. It was partly to do with people
going into A on the weekend and working out how many units they had
had that night that led them to end up in A
Remember, we are quite rightly providing free treatment at the time
you're ill and if you're sitting in A on a Friday night, you do see
some pretty horrific things, and alcohol induces it all.
The Mirror, terror at the zoo, miracle of the gorilla boy. This boy
fell through a barrier and into this enclosure and then the gorilla drag
him around in the water. Terrifying.
It's the second case in the last few weeks that someone has fallen into
an animal cage. The idea that it is a little one is pretty scary.
Horrible, you can hear from the video footage that they are calling
him to try to reassure him. Mummy loves you and so on. The boy almost
looks stunned along with the gorilla that they are facing one another and
the gorilla starts swinging it. It thinks it is a baby gorilla, which
is what it would do with a baby gorilla. Amazing it came out
unscathed. Absolutely. The Financial Times
finally, we talked about alcohol not being good for you, but an expensive
wine available. My way temps global connoisseurs with wine made on a
Tibetan plateau -- Moet. They won't invite wine experts to tasting
sessions in Burgundy and Bordeaux but in the Embassy in China. It
almost looks like and another one, the main. There are enough
millionaires in China who would be so proud that this amazing Champagne
has been grown in their own vineyards -- the name. They may pay
up. It's a bottle of fizz? I think they are producing a red wine in
fact. What a shame, oh, dear! 300 euros bottle of wine of whatever
sort, I don't think I have ever drunk anything quite so expensive.
There's very little about the actual wine itself. It is clearly quite a
clever little marketing exercise. It is. The vineyard has been chosen
because it has similar climactic situation to France and 25,000
bottles can be made there. I didn't know they were doing this in China
but they are always looking for new territories. We are growing wine in
Britain now. And there have been vineyards here for a long time but
people used to laugh at English wine, but it has done well and won
awards. Interestingly, this is the only French wine producer that has
taken part in this escapade in China.
You wonder whether it is because it will make good wine all-weather you
say, Eve, or whether there's a good market for it. There probably is a
good market it. -- or weather. Carrying the wine around cost a lot
of money so it will get to other places in Asia as well. I wonder if
we will get it over here but not at that price! We would need a
supermarket to find a cutdown version.
It would be fascinating if China becomes another place like
California, everybody was amazed when they first started producing
great wine. It's quite labour-intensive, 150
Tibetan farmers work on the farm. I don't suppose they have anyway to
limits! Could be very interesting to see if
it ever appears over here but I reckon it will get snapped up long
before then. That's it for the Papers. Thanks very much. Nice to
have a different spread of stories for a change.
