tv The Papers BBC News March 11, 2018 11:30pm-11:46pm GMT
hello. this is bbc news with martine croxall. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first, the headlines. the bbc understands traces of a nerve agent used to poison sergei and yulia scripal were found on a table in the restaurant they visited in salisbury. hundreds of people who were at the sites being investigated by police have been told to wash their clothes and possessions. questions have been raised over why it's taken a week to issue the advice. the chancellor says there's cause for economic optimism ahead of his spring statement on tuesday. china's congress approves the removal of term limits for its leader, paving the way for president xi to remain in powerfor life. and the film black panther becomes a box office hit, taking in more than $1 billion us at cinemas worldwide. hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow. with me are the political editor of the sun on sunday, dave wooding, and owen bennett, deputy political editor of huffpost uk. welcome, both. sorry there's no scones or scones. we'll explain in a minute. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the metro leads with the ongoing investigation into the poisoning of former spy, sergei skripal, and his daughter, yulia. the express asks why it took authorities so long to issue advice to anyone who was in the area where the pair were poisoned. the telegraph says hundreds of people have been warned to wash their clothes and clean belongings with wet wipes. the front page of the guardian leads on research that shows university chancellors' pay far exceeds that of their public sector counterparts. the times also leads on the poisoning in salisbury, saying the prime minister is on the verge of publicly hitting
out against russia if it is proved that the country is behind the incident. the financial times claims that multi—national companies are paying significantly less in tax than they were before the 2008 financial crisis. the daily mail has more on an alleged child grooming ring in shropshire. and the mirror reports ex—liverpool footballer, jamie carragher, has apologised after he spat at a 14—year—old manchester united fan from his car. so, not suprisingly, lots more on the events in salisbury on the front pages. that is where we will begin. the daily telegraph says officials are facing a nerve agent backlash. a week has gone by and public health information is only just week has gone by and public health information is onlyjust being issued. the information people need to wash clothes they are wearing if they are around salisbury, wipe down mobile phones with wet wipes if they have been exposed. it is a week after the incident. you can see
people wearing suits, contamination suits. it is quite a juxtaposition. most people would think it is fine otherwise they would not tell us, but they are telling them now. it seems awfully late to do this. but don't panic. no alarm. 500 people would have visited the restaurant, pub, where the two or three victims of the attack visited. but if you lived in salisbury and saw military personnel and police officers on the front page of the telegraph, with these and —— anti—contamination suits, you'd think something was wrong. you would wonder what you are wearing, what you touched, and every
cough and sneeze, you would think, in my contaminated? i can see people are rushing to the nhs with complaints on this. look at the times. theresa may to hit back at russia over spy attack. that is the suspicion. have they got the evidence to chase it back to moscow? it isa evidence to chase it back to moscow? it is a russian double agent who is the victim of the attack. it is a state which has the capability of delivering, and only states have the capability of delivering attacks of this nature. if they have found out what the agent is, that makes it easier to draw a conclusion as to which stated would be. we all suspect it is russia. —— state it. theresa may has been cautious about saying so. the suggestion is that tomorrow she is going to, umm, say that russia was behind this. we will
see what happens. it is much more difficult to trace a nerve agent, a radioactive powder is easier like litvinenko. the fact this has happened, it is almost to send a message. if it was russia, russia would not do much to hide it. they wa nt would not do much to hide it. they want people to know that if you betrayed the kremlin, this is what happens. if you want to take someone out, there is an easier way to do it. this is part of the message. this has a degree of symbolism. let's go to the spring statement and the sun. losing your belts, they
say. —— loosen. but austerity continues. the question the sun is asking is now that the times is talking about turning back austerity, people are £4 better off than in 2010 according to thejoseph rowntree foundation. many of the tory mps i am speaking to, especially backbenchers, they feel they need something they can put on they need something they can put on the doorstep to sell, more good news, a public sector pay increase, more money for local councils. they need to give the chancellor ammunition. this was a story that was around a year or so ago, it was revealed that those who have gone on tojobs get pay revealed that those who have gone on to jobs get pay rise from extra hours and then lose in work
benefits, tax credits, which makes them worse off. iain duncan smith and johnny mercer have seized on this, saying you have to make this a priority when you start dishing out some of the... turning on the spending taps at the end of the tunnel. the daily telegraph says there could be a litter levy. it is all part of the... the government is getting quite green. the coffee cups, plastic... levis on crisp packets, take—away cups, plastic... levis on crisp packets, ta ke—away cups, cups, plastic... levis on crisp packets, take—away cups, and chewing gum. it costs 10p to pick up chewing gum. it costs 10p to pick up chewing gum. it costs 10p to pick up chewing gum. it will be announced at the spring statement on tuesday, levies will be considered. some things are happening. the chancellor has
announced this before, the plastic levy, takeaway containers, that kind of thing. the tories have hit a sweet spot now, especially because of the blue planet series, they realise people are tuned in, not just young or old voters. they see this as a way of talking not just about brexit or geraghty, there are things we are four, like leaving the environment better than we found it. —— austerity. michael gove has a lot of energy and wants to get on with things. it is a sweet spot. have you not noticed in the last few days we have seemed... brexit has done on the backburner. shh! you havejinxed it! common infections may raise the risk of strokes, more than obesity,
says the telegraph. apparently there isa says the telegraph. apparently there is a 40% greater risk of heart attack and stroke, 150%. these infections are quite serious often. if you have a propensity towards a stroke or a heart attack, they will increase the chance of it happening quite substantially. what can you do? 0besity quite substantially. what can you do? obesity is something we are all encouraged to tackle, but a common infection... it is strange, correlation, causation, is it because you keep getting infections, that leaves you having a stroke, i am not sure what to take away from this. it is like people living in certain towns more likely to die young. it is often because those towns have poverty, the healthcare
and the food and the lifestyle makes the more healthy. the guardian. vice chancellor pay eclipses public sector. they have done research, trying to compare what university bosses are earning compared to the chief executive of the council. even if you argue they work in the public sector and there is competition, comparing it to... they have said the chief executive of birmingham city council pockets £500,000 a year, a pretty good job in terms of his salary. this has been around for a while. there is no sense of anything changing. the minister said it is something we need to look at and put this in the light. students are paying hefty fees these days.
people are starting to ask questions a bit more about what the quality of the courses are like and also why these people at the top are earning such big money. a quick question on the picture. a 2.5 metre statue based on a real—life man in the science museum as part of the medical galleries. zombie boy. these are his tattoos. this piece of art will be in homage to art all over their body. a bit meta. it does not say what it is made out of. it looks like brass. i would not want to clea n like brass. i would not want to clean it. it would take a while. page three of the mail. the best headline. scone of contention.
national trust in a jam. it needs explanation. it is whether you put your cream or jam explanation. it is whether you put your cream orjam on your, can i correct you, "scon. " your cream orjam on your, can i correct you, ‘scon.’ ‘scoen' doesn't work. people living in cornwall put the jam on first and the cream on top by people in devon do it the other way. the national trust, in trouble for many things, hunting on its land, drag hunting, ithink trouble for many things, hunting on its land, drag hunting, i think they call it, or making the staff to wear gay pride badges, which caused a row, always getting in trouble, they put upa row, always getting in trouble, they put up a picture of the jam on top of the cream, which is the wrong way
round. they made a devonian scone, scoen, look like it was in cornwall. the person that posted the offensive advert has now been suitably re—educated in the ways of the cornish, which i feel sorry for, being a devon lad. it comes up so often. meanwhile, unicef dieback on the menu. we tire of plain plates. it isa the menu. we tire of plain plates. it is a full dinner service, elaborate ones are being auctioned off. is to be the mainstay of your wedding list. —— it used to be.
eternal bows, it used to be. the willow pattern as well. used to have a nice one on christmas day, especially elaborate. a nice one on christmas day, especially elaboratelj a nice one on christmas day, especially elaborate. i only ever saw them as part of the conveyor belt. i have nice plates for my scones. we tried to supply a scone asa scones. we tried to supply a scone as a prop but the cupboard was bare in the kitchen downstairs. that is it for the night. don't forget, you can see the front pages of the papers on line on the bbc news website. it's all there for you, seven days a week, at bbc.co.uk/papers. and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on the bbc iplayer. thank you, and goodbye. coming up next, the film review. hello there, welcome to the film review here on bbc news.
