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


With me are Camilla Tominey, Deputy political editor


at The Daily Express and the Broadcaster, David Davies.


Let's have a look at some front pages.


The Sun leads with tonight's news that the Moors murderer,


They say he never revealed where he buried one of his vitims.


The Times also carries a picture Ian Brady,


The Times also carries a picture of Ian Brady,


but leads with a drugs firm facing a fine of hundreds of millions


of pounds, for increasing the cost of cancer medicines.


The FT says the hackers could be ready to launch a second global


cyber attack using a system stolen from US spies.


Ahead of tomorrow's manifesto launch - the i's headline is 'Labour's


tax grab on the rich', with the paper expected to propose


extending the top rate to those earning above ?80,000 a year.


The Telegraph leads on the same story -


claiming that almost a million middle-class people would be dragged


into paying the top rate of income tax under Labour's plans.


While The Guardian reports a Labour manifesto pledging a levy on firms


paying over ?330,000 on individual wages.


The Metro focuses on the search for body of missing schoolgirl


Danielle Jones, following a tip-off, 16 years after she disappeared.


And the Express says a balanced diet and exercise can


Another winner from you. The Sunday express, actually. Got out of that


one very nicely, neat footwork in there. Appreciate that, very good.


We're going to go with the sun. Breaking news tonight, Ian Brady has


died. At Ashworth psychiatric hospital. I think we have the front


page of the paper. There it is. That's how they are referring to


him. A lot of people feel that way and this day could not come soon


enough. I think as well, when you look at that headline and the


description of monster and the mugshot, the of him alongside Myra


are probably some of the most awful the iconic images of the 60s and


have lived with us for many generations. I am starkly reminded


of Winnie Johnson 's death, the mother of Keith Bennett in 2012, and


reading her obituary and this poor woman who went to her grave not


knowing where her 12-year-old son was buried. That is still the case


for all these families so this man, this monster who are on a number of


occasions took the police on a wild goose chase on the moors discovered


nothing, and families had no pleasure whatsoever. This will not


be closure for them if they do not know where these bodies were buried.


What do we do? How do we react to this? We react appropriately, we do


not eulogise him, we reflect on his heinous crimes and bats try and move


forward. You covered the trial. I went as a journalist of the North


West just after the trial. Which is inked on the memories of so many


people. From Madeira, -- from that era. I then covered it and


interviewed Keith Bennett 's mother, who you mentioned. It is hard to


convey to people the awfulness of the feelings that everybody had at


that time. The impact on hardened police officers, let alone the jury


who heard those awful things at that trial. Let alone journalists, as


well, hardened journalists who had never heard things as awful as they


heard in that courtroom. The people you feel sorry for though, are of


course the relatives who will never, now, presumably, no. I always think,


the only thing that is never quite clear, is whether Hindley and Brady


did actually know where specifically where, the bodies were buried. But,


if they did, it was even more horrendous. For most people, it is


impossible to understand the level of evil, and the word monster is


frankly the right one. I think we have an image of the front page of


The Times. Sorry, we already showed that in the intro. Just showing a


picture there. Ian Brady, who has died. We are going to move on now


actually to the Financial Times. The hacking story, cyber attack, hackers


have second US weapon primed for attack, according to analysts.


Everyone expected a spike on the weekend following Friday's attack


but that did not happen. Do you know, my worry is that we are being


let down by government, be they British governments, certainly


questions have to be asked on the American government. And indeed of


the Russians in all this. If the extents of hacking is what it


appears to be, of course, it is horrendous what has been going on to


the NHS and elements of the NHS. People with heart problems, stroke


victims, have had to be moved elsewhere this very weekend. This is


the extent of it. Is it... I mean, I have occasionally been sympathetic


to Jeremy Hunt in this studio in the past, but the problem he has got is


this has happened on his watch. He will now have to answer on behalf of


the health service for what has been going on. It does seem bizarre, we


all get the messages on our computer saying you need to update your


software. Download this and it will happen overnight. Stuff is left not


quite working when you get at the next day, but you work through it


and get it sorted. It's hard to believe that is all a lot of these


trusts had to do to stop this? It's incredible. But then we have just


been through the winter crisis. We probably have a lot of people in


hospitals with other priorities. I know Amber Rudd was saying over the


weekend, we told just to do this and we set money aside. It comes against


a backdrop of catastrophic IT failures by NHS. Only a few years


ago they scrapped that scheme to digitise everything that cost the


taxpayer ?10 billion. It seems that anything they touch with regards to


IT turns to rot. Equally I think people are quite sympathetic with


the actual front line staff that had to deal with this, and also probably


people look at their own behaviour with their own cyber security


reflect that actually will probably not all as digital gent as we could


be. But we run NHS trusts. -- not as diligent as we could be. Some of


these trusts apparently, I was talking to a cyber expert tonight,


they have been encouraged to update their systems for several years also


have refused to do so because they are used to the system may have and


it works for them. This is the point. If governments


are not telling the these trusts the risks that they are running. Let me


declare an interest right away. I have had my e-mail account hacked in


recent weeks. I have discovered e-mails have been sent to certain of


my contacts, and friends, asking invoices which appeared to come from


my e-mail accounts and which when you actually look closely, come from


Poland and Malaysia for example. The truth of the matter is, I should be


changing my passwords and all the rest of it, much more regularly than


I am, I assume. We all should be. Then somebody has to tell us this.


Tell us it's deadly serious, chaps. Also why isn't this system is


standardised across all systems? We talk about 500 different types of


surgery gloves. Why are some places using Windows XP, and I heard


elsewhere, lotus notes? That's a messaging service that is 20 years


old. You stick with what you know. This is originating in the American


security operation, and that is a huge scandal. There is a bloke


called Trump who should be concentrating perhaps a bit more on


that. He has issues on his plate, don't worry about that. Camilla, the


I. Tax grabs on the rich. The Labour manifesto out tomorrow, they have


got to cost all this stuff? We are living in some sort of Groundhog


Day. We heard all this last week when the manifesto was weak. Going


back over it. But occur when the manifesto was leaked. Corbin saying


anyone who owns over 80 grand in taxed. He has made all these


pledges. He wants to scrap Jewish and fees, money back into the NHS.


Everyone is vitally asking how to fund this. -- he wants to scrap


tuition fees. Well, most people will not be taxed, according to him.


Let's be fair. I am making this assumption based on the part of the


manifesto that was not leaked were the costings. We await with baited


breath. There was the assumption they had made at least 12 pledges on


the back basis of the Corporation pledged tax. These things have to


add up. An 80 billion price tag on Norman Smith. That has to come from


somewhere and I would assume people's pockets in order to


generate this revenue, borrowing admittedly, but also there must be


tax hikes as the Telegraph has suggested. The top 5% of earners,


big business, they can afford all that. This is what Labour is saying.


Surely you are able to make that argument. The problem is, because


the gap between rich and poor in our country under Tory, under Labour


administrations, has hopelessly gotten wider. Having said that,


there is unfortunately a real problem with the leader of the


Labour Party. And you can talk to candidates of any colour on the


doorstep, and if it is impossible for so many people to see the prime


ministerial candidate of the Labour Party ever walking into number ten


Downing St and kissing hands with the Queen and all that sort of


thing, then whatever you propose... Biggest party in Europe? 4 million


members? That's right, you can do that, you can appeal, but you can


only win an election from a broad spectrum. If you cannot attract that


broad spectrum, because your leader is not seen as a true potential


Prime Minister, you have a problem. Front page of the Daily Telegraph,


we will end on this. Labour plan to pull 1 million into top tax bracket.


This is their spin, we know the Telegraph 's political leaning. Is


this the Achilles' heel in a lot of these policies? 10,000 extra cost to


copies on the beat. More money for the NHS. A lot of people agree with


that. But the tax issue could be the thing that a lot of people say, you


know what, I don't earn 80,000 but I want to, I don't want to be trapped.


If its EU as anti-aspirational batsman thing, I think the


corporation taxes damning than this personal tax. Purely on the basis


that people understand the wealth creation and supporting businesses


as we going to Brexit is crucial. Even the Institute of fixed school


studies of the nation of increasing corporation tax at this time, when


we are going through his negotiation under going to have to be firing on


all business cylinders is silly. Equally I think voters are sadly now


and they still have echoes of Gordon Brown flogging gold at the wrong


price, and there is no money left. He didn't know the price is going to


fall when he did so! Regardless, that's how the voters think. They


look at Labour and think spend, spend. The look that Ed balls in the


economy. I don't agree at all. I come back to the point they made,


the Conservatives, yes the conservative press are successfully


creating this as Theresa May or Corbin. It's going ahead and people


do not see Jeremy Corbyn. Whatever the rights and wrongs of the tax


rates, etc, by the way, some of us remember 1992 when Woodward talking


about, was it ?22,000 Labour was going to have a higher tax rate? Now


it's 80. Not many people on that. We will have to leave it there. Thanks


for that. Thanks for looking at the stories. And to you for watching. I
