training for it. -- I do not see why Tokyo would not be on the cards.

:00:00.:00:00.

That's all from Sportsday. Coming up in a moment, the Papers.

:00:00.:00:13.

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

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Financial journalist, Louise Cooper and Michael Booker,

:00:17.:00:20.

Tomorrow's front pages starting with...

:00:21.:00:39.

The Daily Mail says the 'post-code lottery' for cataract surgery,

:00:40.:00:41.

will end as the government is going to draw up new guidelines.

:00:42.:00:44.

The Metro lead with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt getting divorced,

:00:45.:00:47.

The Express reports that the government will divert

:00:48.:00:52.

spending on overseas aid to fighting terrorism and tackling

:00:53.:00:54.

The Guardian says the Labour Party is going to crack down on online

:00:55.:00:58.

abuse - expelling members who don't adhere to a code of conduct.

:00:59.:01:01.

The Telegraph reports that BBC staff are allegedly

:01:02.:01:06.

paid 40% more than staff at other broadcasters.

:01:07.:01:19.

The Times leads with news that Britain is going to impose tough

:01:20.:01:22.

checks on ivory traders to protect elephants.

:01:23.:01:23.

The online Independent leads with a committee

:01:24.:01:25.

of MPs who have criticised the government's strategy

:01:26.:01:27.

for fighting the so called Islamic State in Syria.

:01:28.:01:29.

Are you responsible for this front page? Possibly. There are ?12

:01:30.:01:38.

billion that we give in foreign aid and if it is perceived as going to

:01:39.:01:43.

places that seem daft, when the story is about India and we show how

:01:44.:01:47.

much we give to India and then we have a story about how they put a

:01:48.:01:56.

rocket into space, people get upset. It will not be the most amount of

:01:57.:02:00.

money, but some people deem it a waste of time. With The Daily

:02:01.:02:07.

Express hat on, a lot of our readers will think it is sensible for

:02:08.:02:11.

Theresa May to say, this money, we will put it towards tackling the

:02:12.:02:16.

global migration crisis, starting with places like Somalia, it has

:02:17.:02:22.

turned into a failed state, there is the group Al Shabaab, it is taking

:02:23.:02:26.

over the country in many parts and if we put money into it and send

:02:27.:02:30.

troops there and target aid and are seen to be targeting the money

:02:31.:02:35.

properly, there will be less controversy. She has sensibly put

:02:36.:02:39.

this out there in the speech at the UN and many would agree. If that aid

:02:40.:02:44.

is going in the right places, then brilliant. The speech that Theresa

:02:45.:02:52.

May gave in front of the UN General Assembly, it was a speech that many

:02:53.:02:55.

conservatives back here in the UK would applaud one suspects. She is

:02:56.:03:01.

talking about dealing with the migration crisis, making sure there

:03:02.:03:04.

is a proper differentiation between someone who is coming hither

:03:05.:03:11.

economic means, someone who is a refugee, someone who is allowed

:03:12.:03:14.

asylum in the first country they land on. -- who is coming here on

:03:15.:03:25.

their own economic means. She also said can you imagine it if it was

:03:26.:03:31.

your own family fleeing atrocities? She is appealing to her backbenchers

:03:32.:03:37.

with a hard line, but also saying, look, we understand why people would

:03:38.:03:43.

leave with their families, this appalling situation. It is tackling

:03:44.:03:50.

the root causes. They are not really, no one is dealing with

:03:51.:03:56.

Syria. Know, the root cause in Somalia is the terrorism and that is

:03:57.:04:00.

where the money is being targeted all stop if you stop those states

:04:01.:04:04.

becoming failed, then people will stay in those countries and the

:04:05.:04:08.

economy grows in those countries and they become attractive places for

:04:09.:04:12.

other people. Critics of The Daily Express with the where is the front

:04:13.:04:17.

page talking about the fact that 20,000 refugees are supposed to be

:04:18.:04:20.

coming to the UK over the next five years, there has been a trickle,

:04:21.:04:31.

hardly any have made it. This story we are applauding the use of foreign

:04:32.:04:36.

aid, we cannot do everything. Every single time, but at the moment we

:04:37.:04:41.

would back what she is saying. Let's move on, the Metro is talking about

:04:42.:04:48.

Syria. The UN condemns the bombing of an aid convoy in Syria. These are

:04:49.:04:53.

volunteers, many of them, they are trying to help people in Syria and

:04:54.:05:01.

they get bombed. It is a war crime. 18 trucks, it is a pretty big

:05:02.:05:06.

attack. 18 trucks being destroyed is a very large bomb. We have seen

:05:07.:05:13.

President Putin and Bashar al-Assad say nothing to do with arts.

:05:14.:05:19.

Somebody must have done it. You have got the UN aid chief Stephen O'Brien

:05:20.:05:24.

saying if this callous attack is found to be a deliberate attack on

:05:25.:05:29.

humanitarians it would amount to war crime, but the trouble is getting

:05:30.:05:33.

that proof when you have a categorical denial from Russia and

:05:34.:05:37.

Syria, then there needs to be proof and in the fog of war, that is very

:05:38.:05:42.

difficult to get. There is a general fear of Russia. The UN commission

:05:43.:05:48.

has stinging rebukes, but what does it do to Putin and Russia? Ban

:05:49.:05:54.

Ki-Moon was very strong today, normally does not get quite so the

:05:55.:06:01.

motion -- quite so emotional. Where does that go? If it was to stop aid

:06:02.:06:09.

convoys, then it has worked. What would you do? LAUGHTER

:06:10.:06:15.

The greatest minds at you when do not know how to stop this, if you

:06:16.:06:20.

have a regime that has decided it will use whatever means necessary,

:06:21.:06:24.

killing civilians potentially and you have liberal democracies who are

:06:25.:06:29.

saying you cannot kill civilians, what would you do? We are looking at

:06:30.:06:36.

it from afar. Ban Ki-Moon is getting angry, at the end of the day it has

:06:37.:06:40.

done nothing. If we go back a few years and we backed military action

:06:41.:06:45.

in Syria, the boat that David Cameron lost, where would we be now?

:06:46.:06:53.

Would it be far worse. -- vote. It is a hellhole as it is, but

:06:54.:06:57.

somewhere down the line the fighting will somehow stop, I do not think it

:06:58.:07:02.

will, but these atrocities, no one will prove it. They will get away

:07:03.:07:08.

with it. There was a real sense of embarrassment and shame coming from

:07:09.:07:15.

the UN today, it is reported by our correspondent. It sums up how

:07:16.:07:21.

impotent and absolutely useless they have been in dealing with this. A

:07:22.:07:26.

lot of leaders will not want to go there. Look at David Cameron with

:07:27.:07:31.

what happened with Libya, that was only a limited intervention, already

:07:32.:07:35.

he has introduced over it and there is that report from the committee.

:07:36.:07:40.

If we had gone into Syria, what would it be like? It is not about

:07:41.:07:47.

going in the Terry, any kind of diplomatic attempts to deal with

:07:48.:07:52.

what is going on, it makes the UN look completely and utterly... What

:07:53.:07:57.

is the point? You had two of the greatest superpower is saying they

:07:58.:08:01.

would have a ceasefire, how many times have we seen ceasefires broken

:08:02.:08:05.

in the history of world politics? Talking of war, the Labour Party!

:08:06.:08:12.

LAUGHTER This is an entertaining story, but

:08:13.:08:15.

we should not be laughing about it. We should not be laughing about it.

:08:16.:08:22.

This is the opposition who should be a Sirius opposition. They spent

:08:23.:08:25.

eight hours, they could not decide on anything important. -- a serious

:08:26.:08:37.

opposition. Like the brownies they are asking members to sign a pledge

:08:38.:08:42.

against online abuse. I don't if they have to stand up and say it

:08:43.:08:45.

with their fingers in the air, but they have to say I stand against all

:08:46.:08:51.

forms of abuse, if found to be in breach of the Labour Party policy of

:08:52.:08:57.

online abuse, I face expulsion. They do face expulsion. They could be

:08:58.:09:05.

suspended and eventually expelled. You need proof. If you are an online

:09:06.:09:10.

troll, surprisingly a lot of them are anonymous and this is a Jewish

:09:11.:09:18.

MP, a female MP, Ruth Smith and she said she had been subjected to

:09:19.:09:26.

25,000 instances of abuse. It is so bad she has required police

:09:27.:09:31.

protection. For a serious political party to spend most of their eight

:09:32.:09:35.

hours coming up with this rather than with anything a particular

:09:36.:09:40.

substance... If they cannot agree about this... This is a major

:09:41.:09:46.

talking point to be fair. For this Jewish MP it is important that the

:09:47.:09:51.

Labour Party deals with it. It is very important, the volume of the

:09:52.:09:55.

abuse that people seem to be getting, this is the Labour Party.

:09:56.:10:00.

It is embarrassing that this is what it comes down to. It is worse than

:10:01.:10:05.

embarrassing, it is horrifying. You are right that Ruth Smith did say, I

:10:06.:10:11.

think this is a great step forward. At least there is something about

:10:12.:10:16.

Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party and his supporters, this seems to be the

:10:17.:10:20.

volume of it. To say you will have to sign up and say you will not

:10:21.:10:24.

abuse someone, it says a lot. I cannot see a lot of other political

:10:25.:10:30.

parties doing this, because they do not have this problem. They had a

:10:31.:10:34.

discussion about the Shadow Cabinet being elected, whether or not you

:10:35.:10:42.

should get rid of registered voters, they put Jeremy Corbyn in place.

:10:43.:10:47.

They did not get very far on a lot of the substantial issues. Let's get

:10:48.:10:53.

to the Telegraph. BBC pay is a hot topic, the BBC is said to be paid

:10:54.:10:57.

40% more than their rivals. This is the Telegraph and apparently it is

:10:58.:11:01.

carried out for the BBC. The disparity is much later than --

:11:02.:11:53.

the disparity is much later than the public sector.

:11:54.:12:17.

If you can get paid more than somebody else, then good on you. We

:12:18.:12:28.

are a public broadcaster. All I would say as a BBC member of staff,

:12:29.:12:35.

if this survey had been done 20 or 30 years ago, it would be completely

:12:36.:12:41.

different. Pay for workers at lower levels of broadcasting in the

:12:42.:12:44.

commercial sector, they have gone down Pacific to sleep in the private

:12:45.:12:50.

sector. That has not happened. -- they have gone down steeply in the

:12:51.:13:08.

private sector. They are lining up. Very briefly, Brad and Angelina. We

:13:09.:13:15.

have three minutes, we can spend some time on this. What is going on

:13:16.:13:19.

here? I thought I kind of expected that. I

:13:20.:13:46.

know he has had his problems before with Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth

:13:47.:13:53.

Paltrow, but no. Irreconcilable differences according to Angelina.

:13:54.:14:12.

I love the way they put it. In the year that has given us Brexit and

:14:13.:14:26.

bake it, we now have Brad it. Who wrote this? Hats off for that, come

:14:27.:14:44.

on. This will be the big story. This is the first one since the split. We

:14:45.:14:51.

have 15 crews standing by to head to LA to spend more money so you can

:14:52.:14:54.

write about it and the people will get upset about it. That was a joke

:14:55.:15:01.

by the way! Very briefly, fitness training. They are flooding the

:15:02.:15:09.

I like Forrest Gump, do not need these things. If you have not done

:15:10.:15:19.

any steps for a while it serves get a move on pork chop. There has been

:15:20.:15:26.

a study that says when people are done the steps, it is a complete

:15:27.:15:36.

waste of time. You are spending ?150 on a fitness tracker and they are

:15:37.:15:45.

changing it. I have got one. I am still looking all right, aren't I? I

:15:46.:15:54.

am not committing. Angelina will not be coming running, but... LAUGHTER

:15:55.:16:08.

We did not get to cats! LAUGHTER Thank you very much indeed, many

:16:09.:16:14.

thanks for that. That is it for the papers, do not forget, all the

:16:15.:16:18.

papers are online. Let's have a look at the weather.

:16:19.:16:28.

Hello there, good evening, fairly quiet weather, things get boisterous

:16:29.:16:36.

as the week goes on. A lot of dry weather overnight.
