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

:00:19.:00:22.

With me are the broadcaster, Lynn Faulds Wood, and Laura Perrins,

:00:23.:00:25.

Co-Editor of The Conservative Woman.

:00:26.:00:29.

Great to see you both. Let's look at the front pages.

:00:30.:00:32.

The Metro leads with the death of an 11-year-old girl

:00:33.:00:34.

after falling from a ride at Drayton Manor Theme Park

:00:35.:00:37.

'Millions to miss out out on full state pension'

:00:38.:00:42.

The FT reports Theresa May's manifesto chief held talks

:00:43.:00:50.

with Ed Miliband's former policy guru, in a bid to appeal

:00:51.:00:53.

The Daily Telegraph claims a number of Labour MPs

:00:54.:01:01.

are considering forming a breakaway group after the election.

:01:02.:01:07.

The Express leads on the medical research which suggests that taking

:01:08.:01:11.

the anti inflammatory drug, ibuprofen, once a week raises

:01:12.:01:14.

The Daily mail comments on trees and Philip May's weren't on The One

:01:15.:01:31.

Show. The daily Mirror has more on the death of an 11-year-old girl at

:01:32.:01:38.

that Drayton Manor theme park. Before we get into the papers, I

:01:39.:01:42.

have an update on that incident in Staffordshire. This is a statement

:01:43.:01:51.

from a website, it was a school trip to Drayton Manor in which the

:01:52.:01:59.

11-year-old girl died. "We Are liaising with the relevant

:02:00.:02:03.

authorities at this time. Please be ensured that the safety and

:02:04.:02:07.

well-being of all our pupils is a priority. We would also request that

:02:08.:02:12.

the family, as well as the school community, be given the time to

:02:13.:02:16.

grieve. The school is also providing support to pupils and staff. We are

:02:17.:02:20.

unable to provide any further information at this time." That is

:02:21.:02:27.

from the school to which that 11-year-old girl was a pupil. That

:02:28.:02:33.

is following the incident today in Staffordshire.

:02:34.:02:38.

Let's get on with the papers. We start with the Telegraph, Laura.

:02:39.:02:45.

Labour faces historic party split, don't spit your sides laughing. I am

:02:46.:02:51.

not quite doing that. This is a story exposing yet again the

:02:52.:02:54.

bloodbath occurring in the Labour Party at the moment. Jeremy Corbyn

:02:55.:02:59.

seen as so divisive that even his own party don't want him. Should a

:03:00.:03:04.

landslide happened, and I think that perhaps Labour MPs would like a

:03:05.:03:08.

landslide happened, then they can maybe push to get Corbin out. But if

:03:09.:03:12.

it doesn't happen, the story says that already moderate Labour

:03:13.:03:16.

candidates are in talks with potential donors to set up or at

:03:17.:03:21.

least sit independently under a progressive banner. As we have known

:03:22.:03:28.

for some time, because they already tried to get him out with a

:03:29.:03:30.

no-confidence vote, things are not all rosy in the Labour garden. You

:03:31.:03:36.

did mention the word allegedly there! Christopher Hope put this

:03:37.:03:43.

together, and a long night of the paper is here, where is your

:03:44.:03:48.

sourcing, Christopher. I can't see any quotes. I was an investigative

:03:49.:03:58.

journalist for many years, if I put out something without a tribute in

:03:59.:04:01.

yet, it would never have hit the air. Here, this is a really damning

:04:02.:04:09.

piece saying 101 people are setting up a new Progressive party. He uses

:04:10.:04:14.

words like rabbiting and desperate, I am sorry, Christopher, this is a

:04:15.:04:19.

bit desperate. I think we know the Labour Party are in a bad way. There

:04:20.:04:27.

is an election, of course he is hammering the nails, it is his job

:04:28.:04:31.

to do, to tell the people that this is the opposition in complete

:04:32.:04:34.

disarray and didn't even want to sit under a Corbin leadership if he

:04:35.:04:38.

continues on. -- a Jeremy Corbyn leadership. I would still love

:04:39.:04:47.

fairness in the world. OK, let's go to the Financial Times. Main

:04:48.:04:53.

manifesto chief held talks with former Miller band aid. --

:04:54.:05:06.

you might be surprised if they didn't talk to each other. The Tory

:05:07.:05:12.

manifesto chief talking to a former Ed Miliband aid? ? Ed Miliband

:05:13.:05:20.

didn't do very well. This is a man cold Lord Glassman. I am not awfully

:05:21.:05:29.

keen on titles, apparently they are mirroring pledges. And yes, the one

:05:30.:05:36.

being mirrored all over the press today is about energy prices and the

:05:37.:05:41.

Tories are going to cap them. When Ed Miliband was in charge, he was

:05:42.:05:44.

talking about a price freeze. Then he turned it into a cap. But this is

:05:45.:05:50.

a specific attempt to park Tory tanks on the Labour lawn. You could

:05:51.:05:55.

put it like that, or you could say, these are quite sensible things they

:05:56.:05:58.

are both talking about. I have been talking about energy prices for

:05:59.:06:05.

about 14 years on television. Laura, is this a sign of a more moderate

:06:06.:06:15.

Labour Party of the party? Are they trying to reach out beyond Jeremy

:06:16.:06:21.

Corbyn? It obviously is Theresa May trying to park tanks on Labour lawn

:06:22.:06:37.

is. It is red hey. It remain so. It is a silly policy. Broadly, I think

:06:38.:06:44.

Theresa May is moving in the right direction. But an interesting quote

:06:45.:06:48.

is when she says, "What matters is doing what you believe to be right,

:06:49.:06:52.

as opposed to being ideological." But she is the Prime Minister, or

:06:53.:06:56.

she lives to be the prime do, but that doesn't make her an oracle.

:06:57.:07:01.

Believing you are doing something right isn't that important. What is

:07:02.:07:05.

important is what works. I'm afraid... best ideas from wherever

:07:06.:07:09.

they are. Both are conservative ideas. Not this one! And she

:07:10.:07:16.

criticised this policy if you years ago. It is a major inconsistency, it

:07:17.:07:22.

is a silly policy, it is going to hit pension funds, it it could hit

:07:23.:07:26.

investments, and could hit jobs. Yes, there are ways to help low

:07:27.:07:31.

income families and hard-working families, but I remain unconvinced

:07:32.:07:34.

that this is the way to do it. The best way for the energy companies is

:07:35.:07:38.

to say, "Make the bills so that we can understand them." Switching is a

:07:39.:07:45.

way to increase competition, not this. OK, OK, OK... I am going to

:07:46.:07:48.

interrupt because we have some breaking news.

:07:49.:07:55.

The director of the FBI, James Coney, has been fined. There is a

:07:56.:08:06.

search for a new permanent FBI director -- fired. It will begin

:08:07.:08:10.

immediately. I am seen what information I can pick up here. He

:08:11.:08:13.

has been very controversial, not least because of the details that he

:08:14.:08:19.

released concerning Hillary Clinton's e-mails, literally weeks

:08:20.:08:24.

before the presidential election last year. And she has cited that

:08:25.:08:29.

publicly in the last 3-4 days that that was a contributory factor to

:08:30.:08:36.

her losing the election. Let me just read you this statement from the

:08:37.:08:40.

White House from the press secretary Sean Spicer today," Donald Trump

:08:41.:08:46.

informed James Coney that he has been terminated and removed from

:08:47.:08:49.

office. President Reagan on the clear recommendations of both the

:08:50.:08:55.

Deputy Attorney-General and the Attorney-General -- President Trump

:08:56.:09:04.

acted on the clear recommendations. Very interesting to see who gets

:09:05.:09:10.

picked to lead it instead. Wasn't a woman in court this week criticising

:09:11.:09:16.

Trump? He appeared before the committee last week. He appeared

:09:17.:09:20.

before a house committee looking into allegations into President

:09:21.:09:27.

Trump's during his campaign links to the Russians. But this is supposed

:09:28.:09:33.

to be a nonpartisan job. He still had years to go on his term. The

:09:34.:09:37.

suggestion that he has been fired, we don't know particularly or

:09:38.:09:45.

exactly the reasons for him being fired, but this is quite an

:09:46.:09:48.

interesting development in the last few minutes. A big story in the

:09:49.:09:54.

states. Absolutely huge. Let's get back to matters here. Millions miss

:09:55.:10:06.

out on. It pension. This is a story the i have run. It affects about

:10:07.:10:11.

90,000 people, but what happened for these individuals, they were

:10:12.:10:14.

contracting out without having been told, it seems. That is the

:10:15.:10:19.

government's full. They were contracting out in their working

:10:20.:10:22.

life, so they played produced national insurance. It was probably

:10:23.:10:31.

their employers! Exactly. In the end, they were playing less National

:10:32.:10:34.

Insurance at the time, meaning they don't have sufficient national

:10:35.:10:44.

insurance. So it puts the government in a difficult position in terms of

:10:45.:10:48.

whether they should pay out to the 90,000 even though they don't have

:10:49.:10:51.

their full national insurance contributions over and above others

:10:52.:10:58.

who have. It seems that it isn't the employees's full. We would need to

:10:59.:11:02.

know more as to why they were contracted out, why they didn't

:11:03.:11:06.

know, and where any employer is at full. People raise children, like

:11:07.:11:11.

you at the moment, who said whether they don't get affected. There are

:11:12.:11:19.

lots of reasons why people might be missing out on this. It sounds like

:11:20.:11:24.

it could be terribly unfair. Official figures are staggering

:11:25.:11:26.

about how many people could be missing out. Let's move on to the

:11:27.:11:36.

Times, a judge attacks inhumanity of care homes that force apart frail

:11:37.:11:41.

pensioners. There was a lovely story in the News the other night about a

:11:42.:11:44.

couple who were terminal. She was dying of cancer, and the hospice put

:11:45.:11:51.

them in together. They both died, one shortly after the other. What

:11:52.:11:56.

this judge is saying is, where is the humanity in what is happening

:11:57.:12:01.

when we split people up? You have a funny bit that you have picked up.

:12:02.:12:09.

It is in the Daily Telegraph, Saint James Mumby was giving a lecture to

:12:10.:12:15.

social workers, saying they should be slowed to split up elderly

:12:16.:12:24.

couples -- Sir James Mumby. This idea, doing everything by the book,

:12:25.:12:29.

where you automatically have to remove an elderly person because

:12:30.:12:34.

their home is unsafe to perhaps a nursing home where they don't know

:12:35.:12:38.

anybody. They said, if they had been living in that home for 50 years,

:12:39.:12:41.

you should leave them there. You should leave your box ticking aside.

:12:42.:12:51.

He did say that he was against removing people to nursing homes,

:12:52.:13:03.

the artificial "You must be happy all the time" is something he was

:13:04.:13:08.

objecting to. You don't have to be happy all the time. Indeed, you are

:13:09.:13:13.

not forced to do it. We all know what he is saying. The front page of

:13:14.:13:23.

the Daily Mail as well, Phil and trees -- Theresa. There they are on

:13:24.:13:30.

The One Show. "It Was love at first sight" Mr Theresa tells all on TV.

:13:31.:13:36.

Was the whole point to humanise and take a bit of the iciness way that

:13:37.:13:44.

Theresa can exhibit. The suggestion is it has worked. It is all over the

:13:45.:13:50.

front pages of several newspapers, probably the right-wing press. I am

:13:51.:13:53.

not sure the mirror is going to turn up with it on their front page. I am

:13:54.:14:00.

glad he reminded me about the recycling. He puts the Binder, that

:14:01.:14:04.

is the important thing. I worry about this getting gigantic and

:14:05.:14:12.

lovely publicity for an election, Jeremy Corbyn is not turning up with

:14:13.:14:16.

his wife. He will be on the same programme. He will be there. I

:14:17.:14:20.

watched it and I thought it was very good. They seemed like a really

:14:21.:14:24.

decent couple. They have been married for 37 years, and that

:14:25.:14:28.

alone, to me, is something that is very admirable. They are obviously

:14:29.:14:32.

the very supportive of each other. Focus him supporting her, but they

:14:33.:14:36.

are a good couple to each other. They seem a decent couple, why

:14:37.:14:41.

shouldn't they give the interview? All the leaders will be interviewed

:14:42.:14:45.

on The One Show. That is the key. Jeremy Corbyn will be on there ASBO.

:14:46.:14:50.

And Theresa May is a good cook, according to Phil. Thank you for

:14:51.:14:59.

looking at those stories. -- on there as well. Don't forget, you can

:15:00.:15:02.

see the front pages of all the papers online and on the BBC News

:15:03.:15:05.

website, it is therefore you seven days a week will stop if you have

:15:06.:15:10.

missed the programme, any evening, you can see it all again online
