9:32 am
eventually the big shots came out and the referee stepped in, debatable call, carlos takam thought he could go on, many in attendance, too, the celebrations were muted. 100% record intact, another important step on the path to big gold. joshua had done what he needed to do. without winning, people will not wa nt to do. without winning, people will not want to watch. so that is what i said, and that is why i said to you, the most important thing about tonight was, making making sure that we won. that we did not make mistakes. when i started getting a bit to cocky and confident, the corner do theirjob to tell me to focus. at the end of the day, whether there is five people or 5 million people watching, ijust have to focus on winning. with the curtain coming down on anthonyjoshua's year, he can look forward to what could prove a career defining 2018, with the aim of becoming the first man to hold all four heavyweight

9:39 am
now on bbc news, it is time for the papers. good morning, welcome to the look at the sunday newspapers. with me are josie delap of the economist, and the journalist james rampton. the front pages, starting with mail on sunday, leading with new allegations of sexism at westminster. the sunday times claims some prisoners sentenced to less than a year in jail could be allowed to go home in order to vote, under new government plans. the sunday telegraph says that chaotic organisation of the health service is putting patients‘ lives at risk, according to the nhs medical director 0n the front page of the observer, claims that senior tory donors have urged theresa may to walk away from brexit talks rather than accept an "u nsatisfa ctory rather than accept an "unsatisfactory and unfavourable"
9:40 am
deal. and the express leads with the crisis in catalonia, as madrid seizes power over the regional parliament. a look at the front pages, let‘s start off then, we have the sunday mirror, they have a news story, terror threat as heathrow security files found in the street, we have been reporting that this morning as well. lots of secret plans that were found on a usb memory stick. quite an odd story, unemployed man found a usb stick in the street, and a few days later took it to a public library, just to see what was on it, turns out to be incredibly detailed plans of heathrow security measures on how the queen gets through heathrow safely, her roots, enormous amount of data, that was not
9:41 am
protected by passwords or encrypted. and which people are, understandably, quite concerned is now in the public domain. it is easy to lose a memory stick, not defending it! laughter . compared to a briefcase full of papers. yes, but why on earth was this person taking it out of heathrow, but alone putting it on an unencrypted stick, and the analysis from the security editor, he is saying, islamic state has been talking about a spectacular to match 9/11, if it got hold of this information, that could be very helpful to them. also, states such as north korea have been trying to bring down infrastructure for years, likewise, if they got hold of this, that could be incredibly useful to them. it is more than careless, it is shocking that this has happened. 76 folders, things like the passwords that covert police office rs passwords that covert police officers use at heathrow. anyone could impersonate them and get into
9:42 am
the inner sanctum, perhaps where the queen is. it is shocking. let's go on sunday. minister sends his pa to buy sex toys. tell us about this. good luck! laughter well, he is accused of asking someone well, he is accused of asking someone to buy a couple of sex toys, while standing outside a shop, one which he said was for his wife and one was for some the else in his constituency, and also calling her "sugar tips" in front of a number of witnesses. he has said that this was not sexual harassment, it was a reference to a television programme and this was highjinks. good—humoured hijinks. and this was highjinks. good-humoured hijinks. his response highlights the discrepancy we are seeing in what men and women
9:43 am
consider sexual harassment to be. men may dismiss these comments, some men may, but it is a man in a position of power, when you are conscious of the influence they have over your career, over your personal safety, then, to a woman on the receiving end, that can feel very different. these are the ripples coming out from a harvey weinstein affair, that are going through all sorts of different industries, not just hollywood. and a lot of analogies between politics and hollywood, very male dominated industry, people in positions of great power and patron edge, a kind of industry where relationships matter a lot, where it is not very clear necessarily how you progress, so you are concerned about reporting this kind of behaviour. so you are concerned about reporting this kind of behaviourlj so you are concerned about reporting this kind of behaviour. i would be the last person to say i am grateful to harvey weinstein, but it does seem to embolden people quite rightly to call sleazy men if they
9:44 am
do something they think is beyond the pale. and we have had this in the pale. and we have had this in the modelling industry, in theatre, in politics, it is all coming out, i think that is great. if harvey weinstein has done one thing for us, it is to legitimise and get people to take seriously and not laughed off, his phrase that it was good—humoured hijinks, that has a ring of when donald trump said, it was locker room chat. you can say these things, and the figleaf of epic banks... you know, locker room these things, and the figleaf of epic banks. to )u know, locker room these things, and the figleaf of epic banks. to get now, locker room these things, and the figleaf of epic banks. to get you, locker room these things, and the figleaf of epic banks. to get you off cker room these things, and the figleaf of epic banks. to get you off the room these things, and the figleaf of epic banks. to get you off the hook, chat, seems to get you off the hook, but i —— chat, seems to get you off the hook, buti —— "epic but i don't think so. —— "epic ba ntz". but i don't think so. —— "epic bantz". different individual, stephen crabb, former cabinet minister, who, according to the sunday telegraph, sent a young woman sexually explicit messages after rejecting her application for a junior rasolea in his parliamentary
9:45 am
office. stephen crabb has said that he had been foolish, that there had been no sexual contact, any sexual chatter like this is totally wrong, iam chatter like this is totally wrong, i am sorry for my actions. he is reported as saying. all of this, same themes. one of the interesting things, talking about people being more willing to report this, these are not the first time that these accusations have been made about stephen crabb, when he was running for the leadership there was accusations. a lot of the discussion was about the impact on his leadership bid and his political career, now there seems to be a much greater sense of taking seriously the impact this has on the people who are on the receiving end of this seeing it in a harassment, we are seeing it in a different context. and a woman who is close to the woman who has allegedly been on the receiving end of these messages accuses stephen crabb of abusing his position, that
9:46 am
may well be a theme that runs through all the stories the fact that it through all the stories the fact thatitis through all the stories the fact that it is so often men who hold power, over the women, that it is so often men who hold power, overthe women, it that it is so often men who hold power, over the women, it is all about power and rape and all sorts of sexual assaults are about dominating the other person and i really think that it is important that women have the boldness and know that they will have the support of people, this campaign we have seen, #metoo, the fantastic things rose mcgowan has been saying, in order to say, if you have been abused in that way, you should say it, and consequences should be suffered. this affects the bbc, something similar, top bbc women expose sex pests, this says, the sunday times says a secret route of —— secret group of top presenters exposing cases of sexual harassment. this relates to the westminster discussion of their being whether it
9:47 am
is whats app routes, ways of women communicating about people by whom they feel threatened, trying to spread information on each other, which is a really important thing to do. —— groups. and hopefully will lead to more information coming to light. women being empowered through new technology, social media... you mentioned the campaign, #metoo, we can hope these revelations will change behaviour but what is definitely clear is that social media, the attention is issue is getting, it is creating a sense in which people feel more able to report and discuss these things without fear that they will be the ones being shamed and blamed. that front page which features the bbc presenter, michelle hussain, she has issued a statement saying, she has been rather misrepresented in this. she says, the sunday times used my name and image in any story, it is
9:48 am
an inaccurate portrayal of conversations that women at the bbc have been having since the pay gaps we re have been having since the pay gaps were identified, we are a forum for female college to come together which many of us wish had existed earlier on in our careers but it is wrong to portray it as being focused on sexual harassment or targeting individuals. so she says that she has been misrepresented. and i think it is interesting she mentions these groups, perhaps on whats app, where they are, that you cannot read those messages, they are safe from person to person, so you can speak your mind very freely. i grew up, you are too young, when apartheid was still in south africa, and i thought, in 50 years' time, people will look back and say, how did this happen. i think in 50 years' time, when women rightly have more positions of power they will say, how did society tolerate a massive gender pay gap,
9:49 am
how did they tolerate the fact that women of the news, as sexed objects, and it was ok. —— as —— how did they tolerate the fact that women were often used as sex objects. like looking back and thinking about how women did not have the vote at one time. exactly. the sunday times have a story about prisoners being granted the right to vote, always controversial, the idea that prisoners could vote. particularly controversial in britain because there was a ruling that a blanket ban was wrong, now it is being said that the justice secretary is considering giving those who could have been sentenced to less than eight the vote, which i think is a great idea. i'm equally encouraged,
9:50 am
i read that the idea once made david cameron physically ill, sol i read that the idea once made david cameron physically ill, so i know that i'm right about this! if you wa nt that i'm right about this! if you want to rehabilitate prisoners, which is one the points of prison, if you give them a sense of social responsibility and engagement with society, they are far less likely to offend, recidivism is at 60%, massive problem and we need to get prisoners through education and workshops and schemes like this to re—engage with society so they will not reoffend. the observer, crisis in catalonia, very dramatic, the last few days, demonstrations this morning, pro—unity demonstrations, actually, in barcelona today, what do you make of it all? terrible crisis for spain, we have madrid reimposing direct rule on catalonia, new elections in december, which was probably a good idea, although it is not clear that prounion parties will
9:51 am
win in those elections, so it is not clear that having the elections will solve anything for madrid. this continues to be a real mess in terms of how the spanish government is dealing with it, when you have this secessionist movement, you can try to crush it, you can bow to it or you can find a way to seriously negotiate. and... the fear is violence, sooner or later. everything in this world is about image, the optics, the image of a hardline image, the optics, the image of a ha rdline back—ups autocratic image, the optics, the image of a hardline back—ups autocratic seeming government, in madrid, imposing rule, through use of the police agency hated under franco is very unfortunate, this is a country that within my lifetime suffered one of the worst dictatorships in europe, he died in... 1975... to be doing
9:52 am
similar things, even if you have the law on your side, seems tone deaf to me, and nothing mariano rajoy is really taking risks by this court. while we are talking about the allegations against international trade minister, mark garnier, actually, the cabinet office is to investigate whether - garnier investigate whether mark garnier rogue the ministerial code after admitting asking his secretary to buy sex toys. that is according to health secretaryjeremy hunt. buy sex toys. that is according to health secretary jeremy hunt.|j wonder which part of the ministerial code that is in, i would love to read that particular clause! laughter. quick word about brexit, never far from the front pages. which brexit of which you speak? laughter tory donors warning the prime minister to get ready for a no deal brexit. telling theresa may that, you know, if we get a really bad deal, no deal is to and she should
9:53 am
make this very clear. comes as ministers are saying that they have not fully read the economic briefings on the impact of a no deal outcome, what it would entail for britain, yet another stage in this very poorly run negotiation. britain, yet another stage in this very poorly run negotiationlj britain, yet another stage in this very po invoke negotiation. i dog britain, yet another stage in this very po invoke the jotiation. i dog britain, yet another stage in this very po invoke the spirit on. i dog britain, yet another stage in this very po invoke the spirit of i dog britain, yet another stage in this very po invoke the spirit of noel. want to invoke the spirit of noel edmonds, god forbid, but there is a sense... ifeel edmonds, god forbid, but there is a sense... i feel the anger on the side of the hard brexit is is completely unjustified, saying, they are not treating us fairly, one of the donors is saying, with the eu kick us further in the teeth when we are down... we started it! it is like starting a fight and then complaining that the opposition is winning, you cannot complain if you have called for brexit, the eu must fight its corner and must punish us speaking of winning, the under 17 sylla. . . we speaking of winning, the under 17 sylla. .. we have speaking of winning, the under 17 sylla... we have won the world cup!

who would have thought it. —— the under 17s. coming who would have thought it. —— the under17s. coming back from who would have thought it. —— the under 17s. coming back from 2-0 down to win the world cup, also coming after the under 20s won the world cup, clearly, youthful english footballers... if i were gareth southgate, which thank the lord i'm not, i would send this team straight to russia, they have the winning habit, they beat spain, of all people, one of the greatest football nations on earth, coming back from 2-0 nations on earth, coming back from 2—0 down, they have optimism, confidence, vigour, fitness, everything on their side that are lacking in the main team. and they have already won the world cup, so they are used to it. send this lot and we will win russia! in five, seven, ten years‘ time, maybe they will have the same problems of fear on the global stage when they play ata on the global stage when they play at a world cup, senior level. on the global stage when they play at a world cup, senior levellj

don‘t know, if you start this young, thrust into this high pressure, high intense world of sport more from a very early age, how long can you sustain that, how long can you continue playing at this level...? you can, pele started very young, first world cup, 17. the danger is, the tabloid pressure, every time there is a terrible song released saying how we will win the world cup... they say, they are all nodding out of time in the studio... there is a tidal wave of hype and fifth end in bitter disappointment. i‘m afraid we are ending, but not in bitter disappointment! i hope. that is it from the newspapers. we will be taking a look at tomorrow‘s front pages every evening at10:1l0pm, here on bbc news. for many of us, colder feel out
