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

:00:15.:00:17.

With me are Camilla Tominey, Deputy political editor

:00:18.:00:20.

at The Daily Express and the Broadcaster, David Davies.

:00:21.:00:28.

Let's have a look at some front pages.

:00:29.:00:31.

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

:00:32.:00:33.

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

:00:34.:00:39.

The Times also carries a picture Ian Brady,

:00:40.:00:43.

The Times also carries a picture of Ian Brady,

:00:44.:00:46.

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

:00:47.:00:49.

of pounds, for increasing the cost of cancer medicines.

:00:50.:00:51.

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

:00:52.:00:54.

cyber attack using a system stolen from US spies.

:00:55.:00:58.

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

:00:59.:01:01.

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

:01:02.:01:04.

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

:01:05.:01:11.

The Telegraph leads on the same story -

:01:12.:01:13.

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

:01:14.:01:15.

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

:01:16.:01:18.

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

:01:19.:01:22.

paying over ?330,000 on individual wages.

:01:23.:01:24.

The Metro focuses on the search for body of missing schoolgirl

:01:25.:01:26.

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

:01:27.:01:31.

And the Express says a balanced diet and exercise can

:01:32.:01:35.

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

:01:36.:01:59.

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

:02:00.:02:04.

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

:02:05.:02:10.

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

:02:11.:02:16.

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

:02:17.:02:19.

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

:02:20.:02:27.

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

:02:28.:02:30.

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

:02:31.:02:34.

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

:02:35.:02:42.

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

:02:43.:02:45.

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

:02:46.:02:50.

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

:02:51.:02:54.

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

:02:55.:02:58.

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

:02:59.:03:03.

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

:03:04.:03:07.

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

:03:08.:03:10.

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

:03:11.:03:15.

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

:03:16.:03:21.

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

:03:22.:03:30.

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

:03:31.:03:37.

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

:03:38.:03:46.

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

:03:47.:03:49.

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

:03:50.:03:59.

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

:04:00.:04:05.

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

:04:06.:04:09.

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

:04:10.:04:14.

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

:04:15.:04:20.

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

:04:21.:04:26.

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

:04:27.:04:32.

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

:04:33.:04:37.

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

:04:38.:04:46.

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

:04:47.:04:51.

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

:04:52.:04:55.

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

:04:56.:05:02.

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

:05:03.:05:08.

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

:05:09.:05:15.

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

:05:16.:05:21.

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

:05:22.:05:24.

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

:05:25.:05:28.

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

:05:29.:05:34.

let down by government, be they British governments, certainly

:05:35.:05:37.

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

:05:38.:05:42.

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

:05:43.:05:46.

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

:05:47.:05:54.

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

:05:55.:06:02.

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

:06:03.:06:09.

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

:06:10.:06:13.

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

:06:14.:06:17.

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

:06:18.:06:23.

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

:06:24.:06:28.

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

:06:29.:06:31.

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

:06:32.:06:37.

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

:06:38.:06:40.

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

:06:41.:06:46.

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

:06:47.:06:49.

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

:06:50.:06:52.

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

:06:53.:06:56.

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

:06:57.:07:00.

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

:07:01.:07:06.

ago they scrapped that scheme to digitise everything that cost the

:07:07.:07:10.

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

:07:11.:07:14.

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

:07:15.:07:18.

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

:07:19.:07:21.

people look at their own behaviour with their own cyber security

:07:22.:07:24.

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

:07:25.:07:31.

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

:07:32.:07:37.

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

:07:38.:07:42.

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

:07:43.:07:47.

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

:07:48.:07:51.

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

:07:52.:07:55.

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

:07:56.:08:02.

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

:08:03.:08:06.

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

:08:07.:08:14.

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

:08:15.:08:18.

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

:08:19.:08:24.

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

:08:25.:08:29.

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

:08:30.:08:36.

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

:08:37.:08:41.

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

:08:42.:08:47.

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

:08:48.:08:52.

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

:08:53.:08:56.

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

:08:57.:09:02.

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

:09:03.:09:05.

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

:09:06.:09:10.

called Trump who should be concentrating perhaps a bit more on

:09:11.:09:15.

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

:09:16.:09:24.

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

:09:25.:09:28.

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

:09:29.:09:33.

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

:09:34.:09:41.

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

:09:42.:09:45.

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

:09:46.:09:49.

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

:09:50.:09:55.

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

:09:56.:10:05.

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

:10:06.:10:10.

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

:10:11.:10:16.

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

:10:17.:10:21.

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

:10:22.:10:26.

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

:10:27.:10:33.

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

:10:34.:10:37.

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

:10:38.:10:40.

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

:10:41.:10:46.

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

:10:47.:10:50.

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

:10:51.:10:56.

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

:10:57.:11:02.

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

:11:03.:11:05.

administrations, has hopelessly gotten wider. Having said that,

:11:06.:11:11.

there is unfortunately a real problem with the leader of the

:11:12.:11:14.

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

:11:15.:11:20.

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

:11:21.:11:27.

ministerial candidate of the Labour Party ever walking into number ten

:11:28.:11:30.

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

:11:31.:11:37.

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

:11:38.:11:42.

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

:11:43.:11:46.

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

:11:47.:11:50.

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

:11:51.:11:57.

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

:11:58.:12:02.

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

:12:03.:12:06.

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

:12:07.:12:10.

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

:12:11.:12:19.

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

:12:20.:12:22.

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

:12:23.:12:29.

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

:12:30.:12:34.

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

:12:35.:12:39.

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

:12:40.:12:42.

that people understand the wealth creation and supporting businesses

:12:43.:12:46.

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

:12:47.:12:50.

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

:12:51.:12:53.

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

:12:54.:12:59.

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

:13:00.:13:02.

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

:13:03.:13:06.

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

:13:07.:13:11.

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

:13:12.:13:15.

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

:13:16.:13:21.

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

:13:22.:13:30.

the Conservatives, yes the conservative press are successfully

:13:31.:13:32.

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

:13:33.:13:37.

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

:13:38.:13:45.

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

:13:46.:13:50.

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

:13:51.:13:55.

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

:13:56.:14:04.

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

:14:05.:14:07.

buy.

:14:08.:14:08.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
