hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are benedicte paviot, france 24's uk correspondent and broadcaster and journalist, james lewer. tomorrow's front pages, starting with... little arthur labinjo—hughes is on the front page of the mail — his father and stepmother have been handed lengthyjail sentences after subjecting the six—year—old to horrific levels of abuse which led to his death — the prime minister says he'll leave no stone unturned in finding out why arthur had not been protected. the i reports on claims from some health chiefs that the omicron variant can infect the double—jabbed, and easily re—infect those who've already suffered from other coronavirus variants. a wave of christmas party
10:32 pm
cancellations is hitting hospitality venues, according to the ft — with many businesses blaming the government's mixed messaging over the omicron variant. the guardian claims some government scientists have called for an end to those mixed messages and immediate action, to avoid the nhs become overwhelmed by a significant wave of covid infections. the telegraph leads on government plans to outlaw the pestering of women in the street or in pubs — it's part of an overhaul of laws to protect women and girls from male violence. and the chancellor's plans to cut taxes is the lead for the times — the paper suggests rishi sunak is drawing up plans to cut both income tax and vat before the next general election. so let's begin... benedict, do you want to kick us off this evening? should we start with the mail, pm will fight who failed arthur so badly? figs the mail, pm will fight who failed arthur so badly?— the mail, pm will fight who failed arthur so badly? as boris johnson the prime minister _ arthur so badly? as boris johnson the prime minister says, - arthur so badly? as boris johnson the prime minister says, i- arthur so badly? as boris johnson the prime minister says, i think i the prime minister says, i think this is a realfailure
10:33 pm
the prime minister says, i think this is a real failure to save the life of this little boy, author hughes. after extraordinary extremes of cruel tree and what is surprising and continues to be extremely disappointing is yet another child who has been... died as a result of the cruelty of his father and stepmother who managed to hide and manipulate i think is the word that applies, the social services. even though there was some issues they didn't seem to think it was the little boy being difficult, obviously great failures hair. it's really worrying what's up because one really wonders, his mental torture, physical torture, one really wonders, his mental torture, physicaltorture, it one really wonders, his mental torture, physical torture, it led one really wonders, his mental torture, physicaltorture, it led to death. how many times this is going to happen be for more lives are saved? this is tragic. and he found the coverage extremely harrowing. yeah, i think you must speak for
10:34 pm
many when you say that. nonetheless, james, the sort of story would need to know about, we need to hear. of course, of course. but you keep hearing the sad thing is that he joins a list of names that we will rememberfor the wrong joins a list of names that we will remember for the wrong reasons. victoria, abp, james what you make of this story and the way the male presented. of this story and the way the male resented. , ., , , of this story and the way the male presented-— presented. obviously the details readin: it presented. obviously the details reading it today, _ presented. obviously the details reading it today, we _ presented. obviously the details reading it today, we all- presented. obviously the details reading it today, we all seen - presented. obviously the details reading it today, we all seen it, | reading it today, we all seen it, it's deeply— reading it today, we all seen it, it's deeply harrowing. the one you 'ust it's deeply harrowing. the one you just said _ it's deeply harrowing. the one you just said their baby p i think of that one _ just said their baby p i think of that one. that was 14 years ago i think _ that one. that was 14 years ago i think the — that one. that was 14 years ago i think. the failures of social services _ think. the failures of social services which benedict is on they are clearly— services which benedict is on they are clearly still exist. it's really disturbing. of course i hope what boris _ disturbing. of course i hope what borisjohnson says is right, i hope he does _ borisjohnson says is right, i hope he does leave no stone unturned because — he does leave no stone unturned because i— he does leave no stone unturned because i think we've all found this
10:35 pm
so, so _ because i think we've all found this so, so difficult to read and to see on television and on radio today. some _ on television and on radio today. some of— on television and on radio today. some of the details, you can't quite believe _ some of the details, you can't quite believe that another human being would _ believe that another human being would do — believe that another human being would do that, especially to a child — would do that, especially to a child it's _ would do that, especially to a child. it's very, very difficult. especially— child. it's very, very difficult. especially to a child. and in thomas uses case, his own son, his own flesh and blood. the other thing that struck me is you mentioned abp, there's a kind of echo to this politician say something must be done, will find the people who failed him. the blame game begins. many people remain the case of the woman by the tabloid and then labour government decided that she was the person was to blame, the head of social services. turned out she wasn't and is now, different case, different scenario, sharon hsu smith and she was the director at the time. turned out she was blameless. but it became a media circus.
10:36 pm
there's a danger of that with all these things when politicians cry, we will find the people who are responsible. we will find the people who are resoonsible-— responsible. yes. that's why i didn't concentrate _ responsible. yes. that's why i didn't concentrate on... - responsible. yes. that's why i didn't concentrate on... of. responsible. yes. that's why i - didn't concentrate on... of course the prime minister wants no stone unturned for that we all want no stone to be unturned. it needs to be a system where it's notjust about one persons failure. this went on for such a long time. how was this meant so much? i heard in an interview you did earlier on and i did think the pandemic is a major factor in this case was that they will have been because people who have been cooped up, not everyone is fortunate enough to have a gardener be able to go outside. they will have been cases undoubtedly of cruelty to children, to partners whether married or not where the pandemic will have played a significant role. it's good to get the glare of the media because of the glare of the media because of
10:37 pm
the glare of the media means that the glare of the media means that the attention, means that there is a public reviling of this and i'll cry, these are strong sentences. i think the sentiment echoed by the prime minister that these are... justice has been done if every can be done. it can't bring back that dear little boy. what a pity he didn't get good foster parents. it would've had a very different life. find the failures in the system and do something about it. we don't need more headlines about it. but please, please those who have the ability in the system to do something about it, please, please do something and rectify this. we please, please do something and rectify this— rectify this. we need them to be interested _ rectify this. we need them to be interested long _ rectify this. we need them to be interested long after _ rectify this. we need them to be interested long after a _ rectify this. we need them to be interested long after a journalist like you and me and moved on to the next story. james, take us onto the next story. james, take us onto the next story. james, take us onto the next story without wishing to diminish the impact of them on, the i. uk red alert omicron ability to

10:40 pm
despite two vaccine doses. in the you have major caveat about the data. so there are no ages, no clarity over how recently the jabs were given. we know it's in the public domain with the efficiency of the vaccines considerably diminish afterfour or the vaccines considerably diminish after four or five months. the vaccines considerably diminish afterfour orfive months. and hence the booster programme being rolled out. then the news which is not entirely surprising, most under �*40s and like to get the new doses until the new year. i think this very public service being done and said on this public broadcast that the i talks about take lateral flow test before family gatherings, parties and life events. as an essential defence. i think that is a responsible thing to do. it might be born, my take a few minutes out of your day but i'll be going to see my parents tomorrow and just as a
10:41 pm
precaution as i have done many times before, i think it's a small thing, it's not even a sacrifice. it's just actually the responsible thing to do. this is not alarmist, it's being careful. and we will come onto maybe the precautions that some politicians who actually decide as opposed to scientists advising may need to come on to announce quickly. before we find out more of the answers to the questions still many of them about omicron. abs, answers to the questions still many of them about omicron.— answers to the questions still many of them about omicron. a good parent halfway step- — of them about omicron. a good parent halfway step- we _ of them about omicron. a good parent halfway step. we were _ of them about omicron. a good parent halfway step. we were watching - halfway step. we were watching tonight the announce gloomily some nightclubs are shutting. numbers of people that can meet indoors as being severely reduced in your own home up to four household restrictions with the ball the old restrictions with the ball the old restrictions about it can't stand at the bar any more, you've got to be seated, all that stuff. lateralflow test could be a relatively, certainly cheap but relatively convenient for want of a better word
