11:30 pm
hello. this is bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first the headlines: the so—called islamic state group, says one of its followers carried out the turkey nightclub attack, that killed 39 people. new footage emerges of the wanted gunman who's been on the run since the shootings. an 11—year—old girl has died two days after being knocked down in a hit—and—run incident in oldham. her 12—year—old cousin who was with her, died at the scene. four men are being questioned. an incident on the m62 that has closed part of the motorway for several hours tonight — has been referred to the police watchdog. the itc sees as the firearm found at the site will belongs to the force. rail passengers are facing higher fares across the uk as average price increases of 2.3% are introduced on the first weekday of the new year
11:31 pm
and the first wave of so—called garden villages, in england, are given the go—ahead. ministers say the aim is to create tens of thousands of new homes, from cornwall to carlisle. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are ben chu — economics and business editor of the independent and caroline wheeler, political editor of the sunday express. tomorrow's front pages starting with the telegraph leads with sugar. it reports warnings from officials that children are eating half their recommended daily allowance before they even leave for school in the morning. the istanbul terror attack is the independent‘s top story. it's interviewed an is
11:32 pm
defector who says the militant group has declared war on turkey. the same lead for the eye — which carries a striking image of the funeral of one of the victims. the times leads with the rail price hike. it says fares are now six times higher than those in europe and that one study says commuters now pay 27 pence for every minute on the train. a similar page one story for the metro, which reports claims that thousands of commuters will now be spending 14% of their incomes on train fares. a political lead for the mirror. it reports an aide to nigel farage could be facing 20 years in jail over a plot to scam drug smugglers in the us. the sun goes with honours. it says the last remaining survivor of the raf‘s ‘dambusters‘ raid during world war ii should get a gong. and the daily mail focuses on foreign aid.
11:33 pm
it claims pakistanis have been queueing at cashpoints to use cards loaded with british taxpayers‘ money. well, we will come to that story in a moment that we will begin with the warning about sugar for parents but really it is about the children. new story to strike guilt and fear into the heart of households across the land about what their children eat for breakfast. a remarkable statistic. the average child is eating the equivalent of three sugar cube is a day at breakfast alone which as a parent myself this is a shocking figure and i start thinking about what my own child is eating. all those sweet pastries and frosted fla kes. all those sweet pastries and frosted flakes. they have a lot of sugar in them and i am certainly going to be looking at the advice and see what i wa nt to
11:34 pm
looking at the advice and see what i want to know really what are the healthy breakfast options? there are so healthy breakfast options? there are so many of these things that have sugarin so many of these things that have sugar in them and you want to know what they should be eating and what you should be offering and what is out there. we were trying to think earlier about what our children eat for breakfast and what is the healthiest option. we both came up with porridge has been the one but then we both admitted that our children like a dollop of honey or a little bit of sugar or something. one viewer has tweeted to say that we should be doing it with a pinch of salt. but as the scottish way. i don't see my children will like that. your children don't mind? no, they don't. then they have a honey on top, however. bad parent! it is the traditional way of making it. the thing that got me is that the minute you think your giving your child serial so as a parent you're
11:35 pm
insta ntly child serial so as a parent you're instantly think that's the real is a healthy start to the day. the other day i made scramble on toast and they were, they were very happy with that. you don't have to give serial, do you? but it is to do with time in the morning. we are desperately trying to get to work on time and drop children off at various places for the rest of the dates so you think about quick easy convenience solutions. what upsets me the most is that, you write, we think that's the real is healthy and we know that certain cereals are loaded with sugar than we give children them. it is actually the other ones. you check the back of the box and you see that they have three teaspoons of sugar in every portion. the other thing that worries me is the fruit juice. you know, the idea that we are starting off with a glass of fruit juice are starting off with a glass of fruitjuice which is one of their five a day but actually the guide
11:36 pm
lines say they should act to have one portion of fruit juice a lines say they should act to have one portion of fruitjuice a day because it is full of sugar and i would imagine that those three sugar cubes at breakfast, a couple of those are already in a glass of orange apple juice or the hot chocolate, or whatever it is we give them. it is interesting that they say that recent data suggests that a war on sugar has now led to a slump in purchases of fruit and vegetable. it is kind of going against the healthy message. anyway so that is the telegraph. let us turn out to the telegraph. let us turn out to the times talking about rail fares. this is the time of year when people go back to work, purchase a new season go back to work, purchase a new season ticket and find out that longer hold the price has risen again. this has been happening year in and yearout again. this has been happening year in and year out free long time now. 2.3% is the latest rise which is still more than the rate of
11:37 pm
inflation and this is only for regulated fares as well. many of the other fares out there, they are not capped by the government, they have increased by even more. one fare in swa nsea increased by even more. one fare in swansea has increased by 20%. imagine using vat and not having a season ticket? that is serious money. the biggest context is that the story is saying that rail fares are far more expensive than they are on the continent, something like 14% of the salary of an average uk worker compared to between two and 496 in worker compared to between two and 4% in france and germany which is a bit of a spurious statistic because they have a different funding mechanism. the government has made a clear decision that they want more investment and more use of the railway to be paid for directly by passengers which is why the fares increased so much. in the continent comes from the general taxpayer which is why the average fee will be less for passengers but they will pay for it in other ways. the real
11:38 pm
issueis pay for it in other ways. the real issue is how efficient are our ra i lwa ys issue is how efficient are our railways and i think people have a problem with that. it is not coming at the best time, is it? we have strikes and people are not happy. delays, overcrowding and the timing could not be worse. the other thing we need to put into context is that many people have not had a pay rise and so pay rises have been totally outflanked by these rail rises which basically means that people are paying more money to go to work than they were last year directly came into these companies, and are not getting to work anyway! we saw over christmas, you know, plenty of coverage given to the southern rail strike and people saying that they we re strike and people saying that they were losing theirjobs because they could not get to work because there we re could not get to work because there were no trains to get them there. it is going to be a doom and misery started the year, particularly the strike is ongoing. and the strike start tomorrow on the platforms because we understand that there
11:39 pm
will be a range of protests that have been organised by action for rail. they will be taking place at over 100 stations throughout the day tomorrow including london and manchester. cardiff, bristol etc. the main protest will be at manchester piccadilly in kings cross. a flash mob organised by the campaignfor cross. a flash mob organised by the campaign for better transport. do you really think that will get the message across? i think it will infuriated commuters. the first day back to work and we roll returning after a lengthy festive break, and given the weather holidays have falle n given the weather holidays have fallen this year. the first day back to work, increased their rises, rubbish services combined with further disruption caused by these groups that claim to be, that support to be supporting the transport system,. jeremy corbyn possibly not seen the funny side of
11:40 pm
mcclusky either. prepared to stand down. a 24% you think he is justified in issuing this warning? here is justified and justified in issuing this warning? here isjustified and it justified in issuing this warning? here is justified and it is interesting that he is doing it because mcclusky has always been the supportive union figure, the one who was always gone into battle for jeremy corbyn. where did the love go? you could argue that he has seen the writing on the wall at last. the polls are quite bad and it is time to put pressure on corbyn to start thinking about an exit strategy if things do not improve. mcclusky is in the midst of his own battle as the boss of the unite union and the interpretation a lot of people have put on it is that this is a way of sparring with his main rivalfor thatjob and a proxy war over the labour leadership to try and defeat his rival. that sounds quite plausible to me. you also need to think about that at the end of the day, the unions have a certain
11:41 pm
degree of cloud. given their proximity to the leadership and the fa ct proximity to the leadership and the fact that they are pouring in vast suitis fact that they are pouring in vast sums of money into the pockets of individual mps their power is only as much as the party is able to achieve at the general election. you wa nt achieve at the general election. you want to be a fair party that is able to get into power and polls have shown that 24%, the lowest support ratings since july 1983 which was the time of michael foot. the writing is on the wall but as you say, i think there is a lot of politicking going on there. his main rival in this contest is jarrod coyne who was a moderate himself and will be sold off, you know, pursuing an agenda which is not quite so pro— jeremy corbyn. he has to choose a different tack, i think, in order to show up the support he needs. people looking at the front page of the
11:42 pm
daily mail tomorrow morning and thinking of how much they spent over christmas. goodness. well, the mail has a long—standing campaign against this foreign aid budget that the uk has. we will one of the few countries that spent directly on foreign aid. they think it is a terrible use of resources and especially the time austerity. this is the latest instalment of their forceful and angry campaign. they say that people in pakistan are being issued with cash cards so they can get foreign aid money directly rather than as food or whatever. a terrible scandal that shows why we should stop spending so much money. willis talking earlier about how there is very little context given. who are these people? and what basis are they being given this money? and without that information it is impossible to make any sort of decision about whether or not this is money well spent will not. and
11:43 pm
we've just spent all this money, you make the comparison and we are feeling the pinch and all this money is going to these people living abroad literally into their pockets. the interesting thing that they say is that the amount giving in direct cash has gone up and there have been concerns around corruption around the scheme. it is also right to put it that this is historic. this has been going on for five years. however the new international developments that terry has been very very clear that actually she is aware of what is going on and she is taking hertime to aware of what is going on and she is taking her time to review the entire aid budget and to make sure that basically the british taxpayer is getting some kind of value for money and that actually aid should not just be about a bottomless pit it should also be about as spending in a sensible way that gives us something back in terms of, you know, the national interest. some of the money has been going in to help us with counterterrorism, for
11:44 pm
example. if you look at the area that this money is in, and think about what was going on in afghanistan and winning the hearts and minds, etc, etc. but, also, i think we do need to know more. it is a knee—jerk reaction to say that this is an abhorrent situation but on the base of it, yes there will be many people who are annoyed that this is going on and i think without further information it is a dangerous sort of conclusion to draw that this is ultimately a bad thing that this is ultimately a bad thing thatis that this is ultimately a bad thing that is happening. more detail inside the paper, hopefully. quickly, the daily express. an extra incentive to stick to your health. the paper as saying that it will help you defeat dementia particularly if you have type 2 diabetes or are obese. does that make you think that you need to stick at it this year? we were talking earlier about fitness and health. any message of this kind of
11:45 pm
nature at this time of year is always going to try and move readers, definitely. ithink always going to try and move readers, definitely. i think many people rethink that they need to keep in shape, keep down their fat consumption etc. it is good for us. but i, kinda, a regularwill reminder is always warranted although i do prefer the headlines that say chocolate make you smarter or that drinking wine is good for you. in a way that contradict themselves because they say keep feet to defeat dementia and then they have a think yourself thin diet plan. just do the metalwork, don't
