It has an impressive cast but is

Kenneth 's remake of an Agatha

0:00:000:00:06

Christie classic is a success? Will

find out in film review.

0:00:060:00:17

Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers

0:00:170:00:20

will be bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:200:00:22

With me are Ruth Lea,

Arbuthnot Banking Group

0:00:220:00:25

Economic Adviser.

0:00:250:00:25

And Ben Chu, Economics Editor

at The Independent.

0:00:250:00:33

Welcome to both of you.

0:00:330:00:35

The Telegraph has a warning

from the Home Secretary,

0:00:350:00:38

that there could be a "clearing out"

of Mps and ministers over

0:00:380:00:41

the Westminster sexual

harassment scandal.

0:00:410:00:42

The Metro reports on the mass

shooting in Texas in which at least

0:00:430:00:46

20 people are reported

to have been killed.

0:00:460:00:51

25 people are reported

to have been killed.

0:00:510:00:53

It also pictures the Queen,

amid the Paradise Papers leak

0:00:530:00:55

into offshore funds.

0:00:560:00:56

The Guardian also reports

on the Paradise Papers,

0:00:560:00:58

which it calls the world's

second biggest data leak.

0:00:590:01:01

That story also makes

the front page of the Times.

0:01:010:01:04

The paper also carries a story about

GP consultations via smartphones.

0:01:040:01:10

The Mirror also pictures the Queen

and reports on Strictly's shock

0:01:100:01:13

exit as singer Aston Merrygold

became the latest contestant

0:01:130:01:15

to dance off of the show.

0:01:150:01:18

And the Express reports on icy

weather conditions set to hit the UK

0:01:180:01:21

with the country set to suffer

polar winds and snow.

0:01:210:01:34

Take us to the Guardian and the

Paradise Papers.

The latest big

0:01:340:01:43

tranche of information about people

using tax havens. The big picture

0:01:430:01:48

story is the Queen who indirectly

has about 10 million invested in

0:01:480:01:57

these tax havens. It is important to

put this in a bit of context. She

0:01:570:02:02

has about 500 million in assets

managed by Duchy of Lancaster, her

0:02:020:02:07

personal wealth. About 2% is in

these private equity tax havens. It

0:02:070:02:15

is not surprising. Very often

private equity -based offshore. If

0:02:150:02:22

you are looking at a comparatively

wealthy person to the Queen comedy

0:02:220:02:28

would expect this kind of

allocation. This does not say that

0:02:280:02:33

Duchy of Lancaster is right to have

done it but the fact is, for a

0:02:330:02:37

portfolio that size it is not

unusual. The issue is, should they

0:02:370:02:43

have been more cognisant about how

this would have looked. Duchy of

0:02:430:02:50

Lancaster will have questions to

answer. Again, as I stress, we

0:02:500:03:01

should get it in a bit of context.

I

sense agreement from you.

I do. It

0:03:010:03:10

is not the Queen, it is the Duchy of

Lancaster who invests. They may have

0:03:100:03:17

been more cognisant about the PR

issue. But what is interesting about

0:03:170:03:24

this story, these Paradise Papers,

we have been here before. The Panama

0:03:240:03:33

papers last year which picked up on

David Cameron's father. And it

0:03:330:03:39

brings the whole morality of tax

haven. Zero tax, highly secret. In

0:03:390:03:48

themselves, they are not necessarily

doing anything illegal. This is

0:03:480:03:55

about tax avoidance, the use the

jargon term. But there is always the

0:03:550:04:02

implication of something shady about

this tax havens. Monaco, a shiny

0:04:020:04:09

place for shady people. The question

is, who to be the first mover about

0:04:090:04:16

doing something like this. I suspect

it will not be the British overseas

0:04:160:04:22

territories because there is too

much to lose.

That is the problem.

0:04:220:04:31

Unless everybody moves, there is

always somewhere to put your money.

0:04:310:04:34

That's right but we should not use

that as an excuse not to act. One of

0:04:340:04:38

the problems with the story, we have

these leaks. It is almost Groundhog

0:04:380:04:48

Day. What is the next stage? What

policies do we need to see adopted?

0:04:480:04:57

We came... Behind the scenes there

was some decent work they came out

0:04:570:05:02

after the Panama papers. We need

transparency about the ownership of

0:05:020:05:09

trusts. Fans are often offshore so

it is not necessarily a huge issue.

0:05:090:05:16

Bet with me for a moment I need to

take us to Texas. This is the press

0:05:160:05:24

conference after the shooting.

We

mourn their loss but we support

0:05:240:05:30

their family members. We appreciate

the first responders and what they

0:05:300:05:36

have done to help respond to this

challenge. They are continuing in

0:05:360:05:42

their efforts as they put all the

pieces of a very complex puzzle

0:05:420:05:49

together, to try to provide the

community all the answers they need

0:05:490:05:55

and deserve. Unfortunately, I am sad

to tell you, to confirm at least at

0:05:550:06:02

this moment in time, there are 26

lives that have been lost. We do not

0:06:020:06:09

know if that number will rise or not

but we know it is too many. This

0:06:090:06:15

will be long suffering morning for

those in pain. We ask God's comfort,

0:06:150:06:25

for God's guidance and for God's

healing, for all those who are

0:06:250:06:33

suffering. As governor, I ask for

every mum and dad, at home tonight,

0:06:330:06:40

that you put your arm around your

kid, you give your kid a big hug and

0:06:400:06:45

let them know how much you love

them, knowing that support each

0:06:450:06:50

other. Tell your friend and your

neighbour that you support them and

0:06:500:06:56

that you will work with them. I am

very proud of the way that we have

0:06:560:07:03

so many people working together to

respond to this. Already, talking to

0:07:030:07:10

the emergency team in Texas, it has

been reported that the emergency

0:07:100:07:17

medical task force from San Antonio

was deployed to help respond to the

0:07:170:07:23

magnitude of this tragedy. San

Antonio area hospitals and trauma

0:07:230:07:30

centres have called a naked with

regards to patient movement and

0:07:300:07:34

patient care. The Red Cross has set

up family assistance centres to help

0:07:340:07:40

all families affected by this. One

thing that is very important for

0:07:400:07:48

everybody is affected by this,

whether you are a family member Ora

0:07:480:07:52

non- family and member is that you

reach out to counselling research is

0:07:520:08:00

made readily available in abundance.

Now, we have so many people who have

0:08:000:08:08

helped respond and co-ordinate

already. I express my gratitude to

0:08:080:08:16

the President, who called from

overseas. My gratitude to senators

0:08:160:08:23

who I have spoken to as well as

members of the Texas Legislature.

0:08:230:08:27

When you look at the robust response

from just the immediate area, I want

0:08:270:08:34

to express my gratitude to the share

of Wilson County, the district

0:08:340:08:38

attorney from this area. And to DPS

regional director. Each of those

0:08:380:08:49

three will be speaking shortly. To

the man of Stockdale, to the

0:08:490:08:58

Department of Homeland Security, to

the ATF and the FBI, the sheriff

0:08:580:09:04

office, the various county office

and police departments. And I have

0:09:040:09:14

no doubt that there are other law

enforcement and agencies that have

0:09:140:09:23

responded to this. No we appreciate

the profound way in which everybody

0:09:230:09:30

has come together. I just turned

things over to sheriff Joe Tackit in

0:09:300:09:36

whose jurisdiction the crime

occurred and in whose jurisdiction

0:09:360:09:42

we are here now.

Thank you governor.

Thank you for your kind words. We

0:09:420:09:49

all in here know what happened today

and it is something we all say does

0:09:490:09:55

not happen in small communities but

we found out today it does. We need

0:09:550:10:01

your support. Media, do not blow it

out that it should never have

0:10:010:10:09

happened because it does happen and

we are sincerely feel sorry for all

0:10:090:10:17

the people involved. We do not know

names of any of the victims at this

0:10:170:10:27

time because we are still working

the crime scene. As we get names, we

0:10:270:10:32

will be family members and let them

know what we have. At this time we

0:10:320:10:38

have no names of the victims.

Thank

you. The district or Tony, Audrey

0:10:380:10:45

Lewis.

Thank you al, we may you have

lots of questions but understand

0:10:450:10:51

that these, our number one priority

and golf is to be victims and their

0:10:510:10:58

families. We want you to respect

that as well. We want to notify

0:10:580:11:06

families before the media and get

notified. It is critical that if we

0:11:060:11:10

have bad news to bear they need to

hear it before it is announced in

0:11:100:11:15

the media. We have lots of law

enforcement working well together

0:11:150:11:20

both Federal and local state

agencies and we highly commend the

0:11:200:11:25

professionalism that is occurring.

It was we need to make sure the

0:11:250:11:30

crime scene is handled properly, it

takes time and, unfortunately, that

0:11:300:11:35

leaves a lot of victims families

wanting ans is which we do not have

0:11:350:11:41

at the moment. We will provide that

information as soon as we can say

0:11:410:11:48

they have the information they need.

We appreciate the work of all law

0:11:480:11:54

enforcement. We do not feel the

reason it continuing threat and I

0:11:540:11:59

think the media has done a pretty

good job to make sure that has been

0:11:590:12:03

pronounced to the public. We are

working diligently both to inform

0:12:030:12:07

the family and preserve the crime

scene so it can be investigated

0:12:070:12:12

properly.

The DPS regional director

is next.

0:12:120:12:22

Everybody here wants facts and

information. But if you want to know

0:12:220:12:28

the motive, you'll

0:12:280:12:29

information. But if you want to know

the motive, you'll be disappointed.

0:12:290:12:30

We have certain facts we can

release, but to protect the

0:12:300:12:35

investigation's integrity, we will

have two release it in a timely

0:12:350:12:38

fashion and collect the facts and

make sure it is correct before we

0:12:380:12:41

release it. We are here assisting

the sheriff. There are multiple

0:12:410:12:47

agencies involved. Where are all

working together to support the

0:12:470:12:54

sheriff in this situation. At

approximately 11:20, a suspect was

0:12:540:13:06

seen at a petrol station, crossed

the street to the church, and

0:13:060:13:14

started a fire at the church. That

suspect into the church and

0:13:140:13:19

continued to fire. As he exited the

church, a local resident grabbed

0:13:190:13:23

this rifle and in gauge that

suspect. The suspect dropped this

0:13:230:13:28

rifle, which was a worker assault

rifle will stop a local citizen

0:13:280:13:38

pursued him at that time. -- Ruger.

A short time later, at the suspect,

0:13:380:13:47

right at the county line, it he

crashed out and was found deceased

0:13:470:13:51

in this vehicle. At this time, we do

not know who was self-inflicted or

0:13:510:13:57

if he was shot by a local resident

who engaged in gunfire. We know that

0:13:570:14:03

he was damp in the vehicle. He has

not been completely identified. He

0:14:030:14:08

was a young light male, maybe in

this early 20s, dressed in All Black

0:14:080:14:14

tactical type gear and was wearing a

ballistic vest. The way of getting

0:14:140:14:19

him identified is that there were

multiple weapons in the vehicle,

0:14:190:14:22

which is being processed by our

special operations group. There is a

0:14:220:14:28

lot of work to be done in this

investigation. We know that there

0:14:280:14:34

are 23 found deceased inside the

church. Two were deceased outside

0:14:340:14:38

the church. One that was being

transported, injured, has deceased,

0:14:380:14:42

bringing the total to 26. We have

approximately 20 that are being

0:14:420:14:50

transported with injuries that range

from minor to very severe. We know

0:14:500:14:56

that ages range from five years old

to 75. There is a lot of work to be

0:14:560:15:04

done. We are only hours into this

investigation, which is going to

0:15:040:15:09

take a significant length of time.

We will continue to provide

0:15:090:15:12

information as it becomes available.

We know that you have many questions

0:15:120:15:17

and many we cannot answer. We have

multiple crime scenes. Where the

0:15:170:15:22

church, outside the church, where

the vehicle was located... We have

0:15:220:15:26

following up on the suspect and

where he is from, this residence. We

0:15:260:15:31

have many people to interview. Web

Texas Ranger is that all the

0:15:310:15:34

hospitals, identifying those who are

injured. So not a lot of information

0:15:340:15:42

at this time. But we have many

people working on this. Every

0:15:420:15:53

resource we have available is

working. At the end of this

0:15:530:15:58

investigation, we will be out to

answer any reasonable question as to

0:15:580:16:01

what happened.

So we're going to

take you away from that press

0:16:010:16:07

conference at this point in time.

The central message you would have

0:16:070:16:13

heard from Greg Abbott was that 26

people have been confirmed damp at

0:16:130:16:21

that shooting in Sutherland Spring

's. He said the shooting was the

0:16:210:16:25

worst in the state's history, and

pressed the work of the emergency

0:16:250:16:31

services. -- confirmed dead. We

interrupted the press review in

0:16:310:16:40

order to bring you the latest air

from Texas. So it makes sense at

0:16:400:16:46

this time to turn to what the papers

were already saying about events in

0:16:460:16:51

Texas prior to the press conference.

This is the Daily Express, with the

0:16:510:16:57

front page strapped with a

photograph of the church, Saint 27

0:16:570:17:01

were dead. We now know 26. But a lot

of detail inside.

Yes, you just

0:17:010:17:10

shrug your head in despair when you

read the story. I ramble when Ben

0:17:100:17:14

and are deeply pavers last time, we

were on the back of the lost leg

0:17:140:17:19

shootings, and all the debate was

about gun control in the United

0:17:190:17:24

States, where it seems too easy to

get lethal weapons and use them.

0:17:240:17:29

Whether anything will happen after

this is extremely doubtful. But

0:17:290:17:36

these massacres were just go on and

on and on because there is nothing

0:17:360:17:39

to stop them. It is dreadful.

Is

that you're reading as well, Ben? --

0:17:390:17:47

your.

Yes. This is within weeks of

the lost leg as massacre where more

0:17:470:17:54

than 50 people were killed and

hundreds injured. There is a numbing

0:17:540:18:00

effect to these massacres. When they

come in this sort of succession,

0:18:000:18:05

people, you know, cannot process,

and cannot think of a response. Just

0:18:050:18:09

listen to that testimony, one of

things struck me was that he wasn't

0:18:090:18:17

- a member of the public to the

arrival of certifying on him. And

0:18:170:18:22

this is the myth in America that you

have your guns to protect against

0:18:220:18:28

maniacs and criminals. But they

don't stabilise. This guy managed to

0:18:280:18:32

kill six people. He might have

stopped going higher, but arming

0:18:320:18:36

people to the teeth is hardly a way

to create a safe society.

You cannot

0:18:360:18:45

protect a church, can you?

You

cannot protect an open society. Las

0:18:450:18:51

Vegas was extraordinary. Airy was in

the hotel and smash through the

0:18:510:18:54

window and shot at random at these

defenceless people. It was

0:18:540:18:58

extraordinary.

The front of the

Financial Times. Then, this is

0:18:580:19:02

interesting, because we don't

necessarily talk about Saudi Arabia

0:19:020:19:09

having a crackdown on corruption,

but here is a front page to that

0:19:090:19:14

effect.

Yes, usually when we talk

about corruption, it is them trying

0:19:140:19:19

to cover it up, if you remember the

BAE story from a few years ago. But

0:19:190:19:24

this is the opposite way. A

crackdown, as you say. The real

0:19:240:19:28

power in Saudi Arabia now, Prince

Mohammed Salman, he gets information

0:19:280:19:34

if you weeks ago that there was

going to be a crackdown, and this is

0:19:340:19:38

being played out in dramatic style

with 11 Princes, at dozens of senior

0:19:380:19:46

officials, and businessmen,

including a big investor in Twitter

0:19:460:19:50

and Citigroup amongst those

detained. So a big and unusual

0:19:500:19:55

story, underlying that something big

is happening in Saudi Arabia.

People

0:19:550:19:59

who might have thought they were

untouchable, Ruth?

Yes. The Crown

0:19:590:20:07

Princess Novy will escape regardless

if he was a minister or a prince.

0:20:070:20:11

And there are plenty of Princes in

Saudi Arabia, because the founder of

0:20:110:20:17

Saudi Arabia had thousands of

children, and they had thousands of

0:20:170:20:21

children, and they are all princes,

or princesses, as it may be. But

0:20:210:20:26

this Crown Prince is being extremely

progressive because obviously women

0:20:260:20:31

can now drive cars, which is insured

Nri. That in which amused me about

0:20:310:20:35

this was that they had to close the

private airport at Riyadh, because

0:20:350:20:40

they did not want these arrested

people to get in their private jets

0:20:400:20:43

and fly away. So there you are.

Moral tale: Don't have a private

0:20:430:20:48

jet.

It is not a bit worry for me...

Really? You don't have one? -- big

0:20:480:20:57

worry.

Then, looking at the Times.

This story is about wait times.

Yes,

0:20:570:21:07

now using just get your phone and

use and app, and talk to agree to

0:21:070:21:15

the GB. And that might be offputting

to some people, because they want to

0:21:150:21:20

speak to a GP, and you might get a

second-rate service. But others

0:21:200:21:25

might say this is great, because you

don't have to walk down to the GP's

0:21:250:21:29

surgery when you just need some

advice or sunny whatever, but it is

0:21:290:21:33

coming. The NHS bosses have signed

up on it. We will see how it goes.

0:21:330:21:43

It is early days. We will see how

the public will like it.

I mean,

0:21:430:21:47

there are one or two concerns being

added this piece, Ruth?

Yes, I think

0:21:470:21:52

a lot of doctors, they would like to

the patients, and vice-versa. But if

0:21:520:21:58

your symptoms are vice --

straightforward, it could be useful.

0:21:580:22:08

We will see hard work. This is only

a trial. What worries me about it is

0:22:080:22:12

that if something goes is really

wrong, and somebody has a false

Yes. This

0:22:290:22:33

0:22:330:22:38

fit ones, and the ones clogging up

the surgery will be the old Abercraf

0:22:380:22:43

at once. I don't see that as an

issue. It could be, but isn't that

that note, you can see the front

pages of the papers online on the

0:23:070:23:11

0:23:110:23:15

the programme and evening, you can

watch it later on the BBC iPlayer.
