Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow.
With me are Former Trade Minister,
Lord Digby Jones and broadcaster
and campaigner, Henry Bonsu.
Many of tomorrow's front
pages are already in.
The FT reports that Facebook is set
to face questions from US regulators
about how data from its users
were leaked to Cambridge Analytica,
the UK company that worked for
Donald Trump's election campaign.
The Guardian claims it laid a key
role in bringing him
The I says Facebook's founder,
Mark Zuckerberg has been called
to Parliament to give evidence
on privacy and fake news.
The Daily Telegraph has an interview
with a British surgeon based
who help direct operations
in the Syrian city of Aleppo
via the web, who fears
that the hacking of his computer led
to a hospital being bombed
by suspected Russian jets.
The daily melts as a per plant to
transform care for the elderly was
unveiled by Jeremy Hunt today.
Meanwhile the daily express says
there are calls for the health and
social care Secretary to solve the
care crisis at a social workers
A mixture of stories there. But
plenty on Cambridge Analytica and
Facebook. Of course. Digby, the eye,
let's start with them. The UK
demands answers from Zuckerberg. He
seems to be in the dark on this. Do
you think there will be answers from
Facebook from him?
Not from him. I'm
not saying there'll satisfactory
answers, but I think Facebook will
deliver the usual general counsel or
operations directed to the select
committee. I cannot see Zuckerberg
coming over. I think he should.
Facebook is this lovely, wonderful
thing isn't it? The moment, that is
what he enables is. I would hope
they would. One thing I think you
should distinguish is between the
single domain essential part of this
which was data given either
legitimately or intentionally by an
organisation to another organisation
with or without consent, or with the
same but for a different person,
purpose. Give that to an
organisation to use it in a way
which others would want. The problem
is I think the second part is going
to swap it. Which is it was used for
Donald Trump. It will all be about
my modem. If it wasn't about to
jumping somebody else have these
newspapers would make the same
headline out of this. It is that bit
that they are all going wild about.
I think it should be overran. The
thing they should be wild about is
this organisation called Facebook
has let down the customers big-time.
There are going wild about it.
People are getting very exercised
about it on both sides. At the
Atlantic, we've got a millennial
generation and people are casual
about sharing their data and putting
every aspect of their lives on
Facebook, Twitter, on Instagram.
Because they think there is no harm
as a result of it. What seems to be
the case here is that people are
making huge amounts of money out of
it, Facebook through advertising,
there are Gateway companies that use

different protocols which lead to
all the friends of those 270,000
people and that is why we get 50,000
profiles being harvested and being
used possibly to target messages
towards the to do Trump supporters.
Lets us show you the FT. They are
making the point that it is not just
in Britain that there is pressure on
Facebook. It is US regulators as
The US have actually asked the
same thing before a committee, and

has just said I think, onto
something here which is this will
lead towards a generation of
millennial, understanding their data
is their own.
think over a period of time you
might just get people making a
decision to sell their data for
money, so they get the money not
Facebook. Or they get the money not
Twitter. Or whoever.
Do you think

Absolutely. I'm amazed at
just how much people are prepared to
share with others. How casually they
are prepared to accept friends,
people just soliciting a
relationship out of nowhere. I'm
quite careful about who I accept
whether it is Almaden, Facebook or
Instagram. Partly use Facebook these
days. When it comes to apps and I

Let's go also to the FT, NHS pay
Well, isn't this good news.
That at last we can say to nurses
who have deserved this for a long
time, over three years at 6.5%, that
is the headline. It is not that in a
year. It is 615% over three years.
It is about inflation, isn't it? --

something you would never get over

That is not the
point. For once can we understand
that in the public sector not
everybody is the same.
As goes to
another story about nurses in the
telegraph. Henry, misconduct cases
against nurses may be held in
secret. What is this about?
you will be very alarmed by this
development because the nursing and
midwifery Council was to replace"
commerce in an adversarial fitness
of practise processes with a system
in which most cases will be heard
going postal orders". What they're
tried to encourage is for people,
nurses in this tasty fess up if they
have made a mistake and not try to
cover up their mistakes because what
we have seen time and again
following successive inquiries is
that errors people have made and
could have been learned from, why
they are being repeated because
people are worried about losing
their jobs. Hopefully this will also
be the case for doctors, too. Even
though if you are the victim or your
child is a victim of this, you'll
want to see blood and justice.
