Hello, and welcome to our look ahead

to what the papers will be

0:00:180:00:22

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:220:00:23

With me are the Political Editor

of the Sun on Sunday,

0:00:230:00:26

Dave Wooding, and Owen Bennett,

Deputy Political Editor

0:00:260:00:28

of HuffPost UK.

0:00:280:00:28

Welcome, both. Sorry there's no

scones or scones. We'll explain in a

0:00:370:00:46

minute.

0:00:460:00:46

Many of tomorrow's

front pages are already in.

0:00:460:00:48

The Metro leads with the ongoing

investigation into the poisoning

0:00:480:00:51

of former spy, Sergei Skripal,

and his daughter, Yulia.

0:00:510:00:53

The Express asks why it took

authorities so long to issue advice

0:00:540:00:57

to anyone who was in the area

where the pair were poisoned.

0:00:570:01:00

The Telegraph says hundreds

of people have been warned

0:01:000:01:02

to wash their clothes and clean

belongings with wet wipes.

0:01:030:01:05

The front page of the Guardian leads

on research that shows

0:01:050:01:08

University Chancellors'

pay far exceeds that

0:01:080:01:10

of their public sector counterparts.

0:01:100:01:11

The Times also leads

on the poisoning in Salisbury,

0:01:110:01:14

saying the Prime Minister

is on the verge of publicly hitting

0:01:140:01:17

out against Russia if it is

proved that the country

0:01:170:01:19

is behind the incident.

0:01:190:01:20

The Financial Times claims that

multi-national companies are paying

0:01:200:01:23

significantly less in tax

than they were before

0:01:230:01:25

the 2008 financial crisis.

0:01:250:01:26

The Daily Mail has more

on an alleged child grooming

0:01:260:01:29

ring in Shropshire.

0:01:290:01:30

And the Mirror reports

ex-Liverpool footballer,

0:01:300:01:31

Jamie Carragher, has apologised

after he spat at a 14-year-old

0:01:310:01:34

Manchester United fan from his car.

0:01:340:01:36

So, not suprisingly,

lots more on the events in Salisbury

0:01:360:01:38

on the front pages.

0:01:380:01:43

That is where we will begin.

0:01:430:01:48

The Daily Telegraph says officials

are facing a nerve agent backlash. A

0:01:480:01:54

week has gone by and public health

information is only just being

0:01:540:01:57

issued.

The information people need

to wash clothes they are wearing if

0:01:570:02:02

they are around Salisbury, wipe down

mobile phones with wet wipes if they

0:02:020:02:08

have been exposed. It is a week

after the incident. You can see

0:02:080:02:14

people wearing suits, contamination

suits. It is quite a juxtaposition.

0:02:140:02:20

Most people would think it is fine

otherwise they would not tell us,

0:02:200:02:28

but they are telling them now. It

seems awfully late to do this.

But

0:02:280:02:32

don't panic. No alarm.

500 people

would have visited the restaurant,

0:02:320:02:38

pub, where the two or three victims

of the attack visited. But if you

0:02:380:02:45

lived in Salisbury and saw military

personnel and police officers on the

0:02:450:02:50

front page of The Telegraph, with

these and -- anti-contamination

0:02:500:03:09

suits, you'd think something was

wrong. You would wonder what you are

0:03:090:03:13

wearing, what you touched, and every

cough and sneeze, you would think,

0:03:130:03:21

in my contaminated? I can see people

are rushing to the NHS with

0:03:210:03:25

complaints on this.

Look at the

Times. Theresa May to hit back at

0:03:250:03:32

Russia over spy attack. That is the

suspicion. Have they got the

0:03:320:03:37

evidence to chase it back to Moscow?

It is a Russian double agent who is

0:03:370:03:44

the victim of the attack. It is a

state which has the capability of

0:03:440:03:48

delivering, and only states have the

capability of delivering attacks of

0:03:480:03:52

this nature. If they have found out

what the agent is, that makes it

0:03:520:03:58

easier to draw a conclusion as to

which stated would be. We all

0:03:580:04:02

suspect it is Russia. -- state it.

Theresa May has been cautious about

0:04:020:04:08

saying so. The suggestion is that

tomorrow she is going to, umm, say

0:04:080:04:13

that Russia was behind this. We will

see what happens.

It is much more

0:04:130:04:18

difficult to trace a nerve agent, a

radioactive powder is easier like

0:04:180:04:30

Litvinenko.

The fact this has

happened, it is almost to send a

0:04:300:04:37

message. If it was Russia, Russia

would not do much to hide it. They

0:04:370:04:45

want people to know that if you

betrayed the Kremlin, this is what

0:04:450:04:49

happens. If you want to take someone

out, there is an easier way to do

0:04:490:04:54

it. This is part of the message.

This has a degree of symbolism.

0:04:540:05:04

Let's go to the Spring Statement and

the Sun. Losing your belts, they

0:05:040:05:13

say. -- loosen. But austerity

continues.

The question The Sun is

0:05:130:05:19

asking is now that the Times is

talking about turning back

0:05:190:05:27

austerity, people are £4 better off

than in 2010 according to the Joseph

0:05:270:05:35

Rowntree Foundation. Many of the

Tory MPs I am speaking to,

0:05:350:05:42

especially backbenchers, they feel

they need something they can put on

0:05:420:05:45

the doorstep to sell, more good

news, a public sector pay increase,

0:05:450:05:51

more money for local councils. They

need to give the Chancellor

0:05:510:05:55

ammunition.

This was a story that

was around a year or so ago, it was

0:05:550:06:04

revealed that those who have gone on

to jobs get pay rise from extra

0:06:040:06:12

hours and then lose in work

benefits, tax credits, which makes

0:06:120:06:16

them worse off. Iain Duncan Smith

and Johnny Mercer have seized on

0:06:160:06:22

this, saying you have to make this a

priority when you start dishing out

0:06:220:06:27

some of the... Turning on the

spending taps at the end of the

0:06:270:06:32

tunnel.

The Daily Telegraph says

there could be a litter levy.

It is

0:06:320:06:37

all part of the... The government is

getting quite green. The coffee

0:06:370:06:42

cups, plastic...

Levis on crisp

packets, take-away cups, and chewing

0:06:420:06:59

gum. It costs 10p to pick up chewing

gum. It will be announced at the

0:06:590:07:07

Spring Statement on Tuesday, levies

will be considered.

Some things are

0:07:070:07:11

happening.

The Chancellor has

announced this before, the plastic

0:07:110:07:17

levy, takeaway containers, that kind

of thing. The Tories have hit a

0:07:170:07:22

sweet spot now, especially because

of the Blue Planet series, they

0:07:220:07:28

realise people are tuned in, not

just young or old voters. They see

0:07:280:07:37

this as a way of talking not just

about Brexit or Geraghty, there are

0:07:370:07:41

things we are four, like leaving the

environment better than we found it.

0:07:410:07:45

-- austerity. Michael Gove has a lot

of energy and wants to get on with

0:07:450:07:51

things. It is a sweet spot.

Have you

not noticed in the last few days we

0:07:510:07:58

have seemed... Brexit has done on

the backburner.

Shh!

You have jinxed

0:07:580:08:06

it! Common infections may raise the

risk of strokes, more than obesity,

0:08:060:08:17

says the Telegraph.

Apparently there

is a 40% greater risk of heart

0:08:170:08:25

attack and stroke, 150%. These

infections are quite serious often.

0:08:250:08:30

If you have a propensity towards a

stroke or a heart attack, they will

0:08:300:08:36

increase the chance of it happening

quite substantially.

What can you

0:08:360:08:44

do? Obesity is something we are all

encouraged to tackle, but a common

0:08:440:08:47

infection...

It is strange,

correlation, causation, is it

0:08:470:08:54

because you keep getting infections,

that leaves you having a stroke, I

0:08:540:08:59

am not sure what to take away from

this.

It is like people living in

0:08:590:09:06

certain towns more likely to die

young. It is often because those

0:09:060:09:09

towns have poverty, the healthcare

and the food and the lifestyle makes

0:09:090:09:18

the more healthy.

The Guardian. Vice

chancellor pay eclipses public

0:09:180:09:24

sector. They have done research,

trying to compare what university

0:09:240:09:30

bosses are earning compared to the

Chief Executive of the council.

Even

0:09:300:09:37

if you argue they work in the public

sector and there is competition,

0:09:370:09:40

comparing it to... They have said

the Chief Executive of Birmingham

0:09:400:09:45

City Council pockets £500,000 a

year, a pretty good job in terms of

0:09:450:09:55

his salary. This has been around for

a while. There is no sense of

0:09:550:10:01

anything changing. The minister said

it is something we need to look at

0:10:010:10:07

and put this in the light.

Students

are paying hefty fees these days.

0:10:070:10:14

People are starting to ask questions

a bit more about what the quality of

0:10:140:10:20

the courses are like and also why

these people at the top are earning

0:10:200:10:24

such big money.

A quick question on

the picture. A 2.5 metre statue

0:10:240:10:33

based on a real-life man in the

Science Museum as part of the

0:10:330:10:37

medical galleries. Zombie Boy. These

are his tattoos. This piece of art

0:10:370:10:51

will be in homage to art all over

their body. A bit meta.

It does not

0:10:510:10:56

say what it is made out of. It looks

like brass. I would not want to

0:10:560:11:00

clean it.

It would take a while.

Page three of the Mail. The best

0:11:000:11:10

headline. Scone of Contention.

National Trust in a Jam. It needs

0:11:100:11:20

explanation.

It is whether you put

your cream or jam on your, can I

0:11:200:11:32

correct you, "Scon."

"Scoen" doesn't

work.

People living in Cornwall put

0:11:320:11:43

the jam on first and the cream on

top by people in Devon do it the

0:11:430:11:50

other way. The National Trust, in

trouble for many things, hunting on

0:11:500:11:54

its land, drag hunting, I think they

call it, or making the staff to wear

0:11:540:12:03

Gay Pride badges, which caused a

row, always getting in trouble, they

0:12:030:12:09

put up a picture of the jam on top

of the cream, which is the wrong way

0:12:090:12:14

round.

They made a Devonian scone,

scoen, look like it was in Cornwall.

0:12:140:12:26

The person that posted the offensive

advert has now been suitably

0:12:260:12:30

re-educated in the ways of the

Cornish, which I feel sorry for,

0:12:300:12:46

being a Devon lad.

It comes up so

often.

Meanwhile, UNICEF dieback on

0:12:460:12:50

the menu. We tire of plain plates.

It is a full dinner service,

0:12:500:12:57

elaborate ones are being auctioned

off. Is to be the mainstay of your

0:12:570:13:01

wedding list. -- It used to be.

Eternal Bows, it used to be. The

0:13:010:13:15

Willow pattern as well.

Used to have

a nice one on Christmas Day,

0:13:150:13:19

especially elaborate.

I only ever

saw them as part of the conveyor

0:13:190:13:26

belt.

I have nice plates for my

scones.

We tried to supply a scone

0:13:260:13:35

as a prop but the cupboard was bare

in the kitchen downstairs. That is

0:13:350:13:43

it for the night.

0:13:430:13:44

Don't forget, you can see the front

pages of the papers on line

0:13:450:13:48

on the BBC News website.

0:13:480:13:49

It's all there for you, seven days

a week, at bbc.co.uk/papers.

0:13:490:13:52

And if you miss the programme any

evening, you can watch it later

0:13:520:13:56
