northern flank is going to be. And a

lot of wind is the centre moves

0:00:000:00:01

away. The north-westerly winds could

be very strong as well and just for

0:00:010:00:05

a time it gets a fraction mother.

But that is not the main story.

0:00:050:00:09

Hello.

0:00:120:00:12

This is BBC News.

0:00:120:00:13

We'll be taking a look at tomorrow

mornings papers in a moment.

0:00:130:00:17

First, the headlines.

0:00:170:00:20

The government considers a judicial

review into the decision to release

0:00:200:00:23

the serial-sex attacker,

John Worboys.

0:00:230:00:28

Every victim out there, every friend

or family victims that has read

0:00:280:00:33

about this case would like to know

that we are doing everything that we

0:00:330:00:37

can to make sure that victims are

properly protected.

0:00:370:00:40

Police searching for a man

in connection with a suspected

0:00:400:00:42

crossbow attack which left one man

dead and a pregnant woman injured,

0:00:420:00:46

discover a body in a vehicle.

0:00:460:00:47

The future of the engineering giant

Carillion remains in doubt,

0:00:470:00:50

ministers are due to resume

crisis talks tomorrow

0:00:500:00:52

to try to save it from collapse.

0:00:520:01:00

Make the most of this deal to the

papers because tomorrow we take you

0:01:110:01:16

into the future, hopefully.

0:01:160:01:17

Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers will be

0:01:170:01:21

bringing us tomorrow.

0:01:210:01:21

With me are Martin Bentham,

Home Affairs Editor

0:01:210:01:24

at the London Evening Standard,

and Owen Bennett, Deputy Political

0:01:240:01:26

Editor of HuffPost UK.

0:01:260:01:27

I hope I haven't built it up too

much.

0:01:270:01:30

Tomorrow's front pages:

0:01:300:01:31

The Metro leads on the future

of UKIP's leader Henry Bolton,

0:01:310:01:34

after his girlfriend was suspended

from the party for apparently making

0:01:340:01:37

racist remarks about Meghan Markle.

0:01:370:01:38

The FT reports on the

trouble-hit contractor

0:01:380:01:45

Carillion, it asks why

it was awarded £2 billion

0:01:450:01:47

in government contracts,

despite issuing a profits

0:01:470:01:49

warning last year.

0:01:490:01:50

The Times also has that story.

0:01:500:01:53

It also pictures a plane

which skidded off a runway

0:01:530:01:54

in Turkey, plunging down

the side of a cliff.

0:01:550:01:58

The Express has research

claiming that adding more

0:01:580:02:00

fibre to your diet could help

fight Rheumatoid arthritis.

0:02:000:02:02

The I has a special report

about arms deals to countries

0:02:020:02:05

such as Saudi Arabia,

following the Brexit vote.

0:02:050:02:08

The Sun reports on the marriage

difficulties of TV star Anthony

0:02:080:02:10

McPartlin.

0:02:110:02:11

The Telegraph claims

medical records of British

0:02:120:02:13

cancer victims have been passed

to a US firm working for one

0:02:130:02:17

of the world's biggest

tobacco companies.

0:02:170:02:21

And the Guardian unveils a new

look, it claims medical students

0:02:210:02:24

are being urged to volunteer

in Accident and Emergency wards

0:02:260:02:29

to help ease winter

pressure on the NHS.

0:02:290:02:34

We will start with the mail this

time. The Facebook drug deal was

0:02:350:02:41

exposed, cannabis peddled to

children on social media. Get

0:02:410:02:43

another concern that Facebook are

going to have two face up to. --

0:02:430:02:47

yet.

Another illustration of the

concerns that have been raised about

0:02:470:02:54

the activities of people and what is

being allowed to be seen and

0:02:540:02:59

distributed by Facebook and some of

the other social media sites. This

0:02:590:03:03

one talks about kernels freely

touting business on the site,

0:03:030:03:07

selling cannabis to somebody else

offering to sell cocaine, suggesting

0:03:070:03:13

that Facebook isn't doing enough to

identify and take an average and

0:03:130:03:18

these activities happening. It fits

a pattern, as the story says, of

0:03:180:03:28

failure of Facebook and Twitter and

some of the other sites to deal with

0:03:280:03:33

things like terrorist content and

other serious content on their

0:03:330:03:39

sites.

There are a victim of the

road success in some ways because

0:03:390:03:44

they have got so big so quickly

policing every single page on the

0:03:440:03:49

site is just an uphill struggle is a

bit -- they are.

It seems like a

0:03:490:03:56

game of why, all, as one thing goes

down one thing pops up. They have

0:03:560:04:00

become very big very quickly but

they are so big that they can afford

0:04:000:04:05

to get people in place to look for

these kind of things. -- whack a

0:04:050:04:11

mole. There are ways to do this, is

there that the will? Frankly I don't

0:04:110:04:15

think there has been because they

value their claim of being

0:04:150:04:19

completely free...

They are not

publishers, they maintain that.

This

0:04:190:04:26

was a puppy in a where you knew this

was going on it would be closed down

0:04:260:04:31

by the police, no different.

I was

at the Home Affairs Select Committee

0:04:310:04:36

before Christmas when they had

Facebook, Twitter and Google before

0:04:360:04:40

them raising all sorts of concerns

on their failure to do all sorts of

0:04:400:04:44

other serious content on there and I

think Facebook in particular and

0:04:440:04:48

there are executive was complacent

and arrogant. There has been this

0:04:480:04:53

long-standing denial by Facebook

that it is or isn't a publisher,

0:04:530:04:59

claiming it is a conduit for other

people to post and advocating its

0:04:590:05:03

responsibilities in these areas.

They are cleverer at promoting staff

0:05:030:05:07

and finding ways of putting stuff at

the head of the feed and so on,

0:05:070:05:11

clearly they have got the capacity

to be able to at least try to

0:05:110:05:16

address this and I don't think they

have really done enough. Certainly

0:05:160:05:20

MPs have very clearly taken that

view over recent months and will be

0:05:200:05:24

critical of their activities.

Looking at the Times, ministers

0:05:240:05:28

dismiss failing firm, this is

Carillion, almost too big to fail

0:05:280:05:37

because they have so many government

contracts.

They work across so many

0:05:370:05:40

different fields, across the NHS and

maintaining prisons and it says here

0:05:400:05:46

they have a 500 and £90 million --

£590 million pension deficit and the

0:05:460:05:56

story here is that the government

gave in contracts last year at the

0:05:560:06:01

same time after profit warnings had

been issued by the company,

0:06:010:06:05

highlighting its potential problems

and the criticism from the Lib Dem

0:06:050:06:09

leader and others was that they

should not have given the contracts

0:06:090:06:13

at that stage, throwing money after

bad. On the other hand it may be

0:06:130:06:19

that the company needed those

contracts to keep it going and

0:06:190:06:23

indeed it is sort of inconceivable

that it can all be allowed to fall

0:06:230:06:28

into the ground because clearly all

of these jobs need to be done. Is a

0:06:280:06:32

big problem for the government to

get through, to keep this company

0:06:320:06:37

going without incurring a whole lot

of cost.

If you believe in the free

0:06:370:06:41

market, should they be propped up?

Well no, you could say the same

0:06:410:06:45

about the banks. It is funny how lot

of MPs, I remember when the steel

0:06:450:06:51

crisis came up a lot of Tory MPs who

had steelworkers with them suddenly

0:06:510:06:59

they wanted intervention. What you

will see here is if again if there

0:06:590:07:03

is perception that the public takes

the risk and the hit but in the good

0:07:030:07:07

times it is the private sector which

reaps the benefits, which we have

0:07:070:07:11

seen across many industries, you can

understand why a lot of these people

0:07:110:07:15

in the country are moving away from

these free market economics, this is

0:07:150:07:20

the reason why.

Households face

fines and fly tipping crack down. It

0:07:200:07:25

seems like a good idea if you can

police it.

Exactly right. I don't

0:07:250:07:29

think the council is cashed up our

struggling to get social care under

0:07:290:07:34

control, yes this will cost them a

lot of money, have they got the

0:07:340:07:38

money for the enforcement? You seen

in other parts of local government.

0:07:380:07:48

Seems to be getting worse though? It

certainly is a problem and whether

0:07:480:07:51

it is was not, I agree. Anecdotally

it is getting worse and clearly at

0:07:510:07:56

the very least, a few exemplary

fines and people might send a

0:07:560:08:02

message to others who attempt to do

it.

Looking at the Guardian, look at

0:08:020:08:08

my little copy. It is tiny! It is

not really that small, just how we

0:08:080:08:13

printed it but it has gone from its

per letter size to its tabloid size.

0:08:130:08:19

Story we are looking at is students

drafted in to plug NHS gaps.

An

0:08:190:08:27

interesting story and basically what

it is saying is that fourth and

0:08:270:08:31

fifth year medical students are

being asked, not clear how widely,

0:08:310:08:37

but an illustration here from a

University School writing to

0:08:370:08:42

students asking if they would be

willing to help on wards. It is an

0:08:420:08:46

illustration of the pressures they

are under, not a desirable situation

0:08:460:08:49

but on the other hand they are not

too far off being trained. The

0:08:490:08:54

suggestion is that they shouldn't be

doing anything beyond their

0:08:540:08:57

competence. Maybe it is not a source

of massive alarm as if you have

0:08:570:09:03

completely untrained people on wards

but clearly it is not a great

0:09:030:09:07

situation if people are not fully

trained being drafted in at this

0:09:070:09:11

stage.

What year are they in?

Fourth

and fifth.

They are not an

0:09:110:09:18

undergraduate, they will go into the

difficult of the accident and

0:09:180:09:23

emergency, these people will not

have had all the training, I know

0:09:230:09:27

they will volunteer, are they going

to have the capacity to deal with

0:09:270:09:31

what they are going to see and deal

with?

They could be rushed and on

0:09:310:09:35

what they can do.

Of course, these

things are usually done by

0:09:350:09:39

healthcare systems and ward clerks,

where are they? This is symptom that

0:09:390:09:43

it of the fact that workforce

planning in the NHS has been

0:09:430:09:47

completely mismanaged the years.

I

am surprised they have time to do

0:09:470:09:52

it. Aren't junior doctors or

training doctors rather busy?

They

0:09:520:09:56

are training, aren't they? I think

they are training anyway in the

0:09:560:10:01

hospitals. So from that point of

view... It is clearly not a

0:10:010:10:06

desirable situation that people who

previously wouldn't have to do this

0:10:060:10:11

are temporarily doing it on the

other hand, it is not as if they

0:10:110:10:15

are, be doing the job of a fully

trained conducting serious surgery

0:10:150:10:19

or anything else. Would hope not. It

is not desirable but perhaps it is

0:10:190:10:25

not a complete disaster.

A quick

comment on the Metro, your racist

0:10:250:10:31

lover or your job. A warning to

Henry Bolton weather he will

0:10:310:10:34

survive.

I think it is your turn

next and my turn the week after,

0:10:340:10:42

whether or not he will survive after

his girlfriend he left his wife for,

0:10:420:10:47

which is of no importance,... A bit

of background. She sent some

0:10:470:10:53

apparently racist tax about Meghan

Markle.

It is not a good look. A

0:10:530:11:03

good soap opera, but not

satisfactory...

A couple of stories

0:11:030:11:10

in the sun on page two. Firstly.

First, should I say. Acts 100,000

0:11:100:11:22

migrant target. -- axe. From the

home Select Committee.

They are

0:11:220:11:29

basically saying that the government

's target is to get it down to

0:11:290:11:36

100,000 Ford migration, it should be

scrapped and replaced by what sounds

0:11:360:11:41

like a complicated series of

different targets and controls of.

0:11:410:11:46

-- and controls. There should be a

proper looking out at what kind of

0:11:500:11:54

targets should be meted and which

are making good contributions and

0:11:540:11:57

which are not. Try to skew the

migration policy towards that. On

0:11:570:12:04

the other hand, it may be that it is

even more complicated and difficult

0:12:040:12:09

to achieve and to reach those

targets entered deliver those

0:12:090:12:12

targets they do have the existing

one.

At the moment, if you are doing

0:12:120:12:18

this system which looks at what your

economy needs, in terms of the

0:12:180:12:22

Guardian apparently we need

healthcare clerks and you look at

0:12:220:12:30

Carillion need people to come in and

work.

They need money.

You might

0:12:300:12:34

look at this at what the economy

needs, it needs migrant workers are.

0:12:340:12:40

If you look at the construction

sector, it needs migrant workers. So

0:12:400:12:45

actually, the idea that distance be

some kind of true, I wouldn't put...

0:12:450:12:54

That is the whole point, also what

is interesting is the committee has

0:12:540:12:59

tried to struggle the divide --

straddle. They are suggesting the

0:12:590:13:06

replacing of one target with

something that would buy all

0:13:060:13:10

purposes have some control over

migration.

But it would fluctuate

0:13:100:13:14

year on year. And other story

underneath, related because it is

0:13:140:13:19

about Brexit. Freeing us from free

movement across the EU. Let's not

0:13:190:13:26

call him that, Boris Johnson, Brexit

is on a knife edge.

The great Echo

0:13:260:13:33

continues when Nigel Farage says

some in Boris Johnson says it is

0:13:330:13:37

well. Nigel Farage said the other

day that Britain is on a knife edge

0:13:370:13:46

and Boris has backed him up, saying

yes there may be trouble. The

0:13:460:13:51

remainers might wear down Theresa

May. Is not an awful lot on this

0:13:510:13:58

rather than Boris Johnson picking up

a stink.

No explanation on how

0:13:580:14:04

Brexit would be frustrated or

diverted.

Two things, one thing

0:14:040:14:11

suggesting, what he is saying here

or apparently sane through friends,

0:14:110:14:15

what he doesn't want, I can

understand this entirely, is that

0:14:150:14:20

the country ends up having a deal

where basically he is arguing that

0:14:200:14:25

Theresa May gets crowned down and

agrees. -- saying. Not committing to

0:14:250:14:34

the rules, still subject to the

jurisdiction of the European Court.

0:14:340:14:39

Everything remains the same except

for the anomaly outside the European

0:14:390:14:42

Union and that would leave us in a

worse situation and he doesn't want

0:14:420:14:46

that and would rather almost 18 if

that were the case. So I think,

0:14:460:14:51

there are two things there, somehow

the whole thing might not happen but

0:14:510:14:55

if it doesn't -- if it does happen

it might happen in a way that would

0:14:550:15:00

in effect destroy what the purpose

was in the first place and that is

0:15:000:15:04

what he is concerned about,

according to the story.

Finishing

0:15:040:15:07

with the Financial Times and eight

picture of a man standing on

0:15:070:15:12

something rather precarious and that

something is the Lloyds of London

0:15:120:15:15

building.

0:15:150:15:20

This was a building designed by

Richard Rogers, it has won all sorts

0:15:200:15:24

of awards, and has all its pipes

outside the building and is

0:15:240:15:29

therefore very easy to climb. Lloyds

have been getting some injunctions

0:15:290:15:31

to try and stop urban explorers

climbing up to take photographs, and

0:15:310:15:37

it is costing them a fortune to have

the security there to try and stop

0:15:370:15:41

them.

Easy to climb but still

extremely high.

The problem is, if

0:15:410:15:47

they want to be silly enough to do

this, then let them do it!

It is in

0:15:470:15:53

pursuit of the perfect selfie, isn't

it?

Isn't it time the fashion for

0:15:530:16:01

selfies died out?

That's it for the

papers. Lovely to have U-boat here.

0:16:010:16:05

Thank you very much for coming in.
