in scotland free of charge, to protect them from infection, puts pressure on the nhs in england to roll out the drug too. the express also leads with a medical story, and the new pump that helps patients recover from severe disease without the need of a transplant. the mirror carries tributes to pc keith palmer, following his funeral today. thousands of police officers lined the streets of london to pay tribute. and finally, the metro covers the funeral of pc keith palmer. we are going to cross the water to the atlantic, over the atlantic to america. donald trump's son, eric has given an interview to the telegraph where he says putin won't bully us. more alarmingly it seems from this conversation the main point of sending of those missiles was to make sure he and his father could defuse the threat posed to trump by the russia scandal. one of
10:46 pm
eric tram's statement is if there is anything syria did, it was to validate the fact there is no russia. so his main take on this event is that my father will now no longer be under suspicion for his links with russia. and putin won't bully us. if he wants a fight, we won't be intimidated by talk of war. like two bullies in the playground squaring up and say, if you hit me, i will hit you back. is the fbi's investigation, the other investigations, will they care about the missiles being sent to syria, suggesting donald trump is not in league with president putin?” suggesting donald trump is not in league with president putin? i am sure you are right. they are not going to give a monkeys. whilst your cynicism isjustified, it also represents a more serious pivot on foreign policy. absolutely. the sun's take on this, practically the first thing he says is this...
10:47 pm
that's what's illuminating. i'm not saying there was an something real going on. as william hague says writing in the telegraph tomorrow, essentially, the former foreign secretary, these are as follows, that trump has worked out, incredible it has taken him this wrong, that russia is not a reliable ally, is how he puts it, in terms of international affairs. worked out... better late than never. it counts as progress. continuing this theme with the guardian. rex tillerson, us secretary of state, us will protect innocents from aggressors says rex tillerson. this is a man who is the chief diplomat for an administration that was not interested in protecting innocents, necessarily. as far as the explanation of foreign policy that mr trump was putting out
10:48 pm
during his campaign. it was america first. and let's not get involved in strange foreign affairs of which we know little and understand less. i was worried about this sentence which rex tillerson said the us will hold to account any and all who commit crimes against the innocent anywhere in the world. that is a fabulous sentiment that america doesn't have the willpower or the understanding all resources to do it. it's actually a meaningless statement. it way beyond retaliating through the use of chemical weapons. if your going to zimbabwe, congo, stopping the bombing the us is complicit in in yemen? this is a nonsensical statement and no diplomat, no one in the diplomatic service would be foolish enough to make it. they will have to go back from it because every single catastrophe in the world, people can turn to america and say, you said you would defend us. they have flipped in less than a week from the america first policy to classic
10:49 pm
liberal ultra—intervention was. i think what is really behind it, and you can see the influence, you mentioned eric trump, but ivanka trump seems to be winning the battle. for influence within the white house. the way in which steve bannon, the populace, one of the architects of trump's victory, the way he has been sidelined. perhaps we would expect to see manoeuvred out of the white house. and the are moving in. and try to normalise his presidency after the embarrassment of the first few months, if you like. the key phrase in washington seems to be at the moment, whatever you do, don't make dad look bad. whoever does that will get fired. they are trying in an interesting way, exaggerating for effect, but they are trying to normalise his presidency after a bizarre start. but all us presidents go through this. this conversion... they all go
10:50 pm
insane, we're not going to be the world's policeman. george w bush did it, a more humble policy. obama, pivot a bit towards asia but he won't be running around the world saving lives. was a car classic example. it took horrible pictures of ethnic cleansing across—the—board in kosovo for him to get involved in the balkans. every american president says they won't get involved globally but they end up having to do it. the difficulty is they look round and quite properly think that's what happening in the world of horrors, and america is ultimately more powerful than anyone else. all of us wish these atrocities were not happening and we wish there were magic solutions to stop them happening. america's record is pretty poor at getting it right, as we've seen in libya, iraq, afghanistan. none of those countries are ina afghanistan. none of those countries are in a good situation now. the problem is, our intentions, and any american president's good intentions very rarely end up with good
10:51 pm
solutions on the ground, because the world is complicated and there are tensions we don't understand.” think the point is they have to be seen think the point is they have to be seen to be trying. even if they get it wrong. that is true, but there is another thing at play, the law of the situation. very seductive, the idea that you are the president and suddenly people are coming to you with secret briefings. the room turns to you. every diplomat is hanging on your every word, and trump, a person observes the television, finds he can respond arnie has all of this military might at his disposal. yes, sure. we have to move on, because sadly we have a lot to get through. the financial times. ba rclays through. the financial times. barclays whistle—blower, good story, this. this is pretty terrifying, ba rclays this. this is pretty terrifying, barclays chief executive twice pushed in his organisation for the exposure of a whistle—blower who had
10:52 pm
criticised an appointment he himself had made. the whole point of whistle—blowing in the city if you are meant to be able to report your doubts about ethical behaviour in your company without having retaliation against you. this man, who came into barclays saying i'm going to rebuild its reputation after the libel rigging scandal, as soon as after the libel rigging scandal, as soon as somebody said secretly and privately i think there is something wrong with your decisions and they area wrong with your decisions and they are a little suspect, tried to overturn all the bank's procedures on uncovering and identifying this person. now the fact he did this has been exposed and he will have to surrender perhaps £1 million of his bonus. but i think that's actually not enough. i don't think you can have somebody leading a company who just wants to get rid of anyone who is critical. two of the regulators are looking into this so it could be are looking into this so it could be a lot worse than simply losing 1.3 million, although for most people that would be pretty horrific anyway. a whole different world in the city. the fca and the
10:53 pm
regulators, we shouldn't forget that one of the key problems in the run—up to the financial crisis was that there wasn't really enough space for whistle— blowers to that there wasn't really enough space for whistle—blowers to blow the whistle. in those organisations people kept shrum or were fired. ever since the crisis, the regulators have been determined to try and change that. but if you are employed by barclays now you wouldn't want to bring that whistle—blowing helpline. wouldn't want to bring that whistle-blowing helpline. or you might have more confidence. you would know you are taking a risk. he has been found out. staying with the ft. has been found out. staying with the ft, united, cracking story, this. talking about ceos in trouble, jes staley has nothing on the ceo of united airlines. you have this passenger dragged off a flight. what seems to have happened if they overbooked flights, which happens quite a bit. asked passengers to leave, didn't get volunteers. lead four of the moth and this chap, a
10:54 pm
doctor, refused to go and was dragged kicking and screaming. bashed about. apparently literally screaming according to this. videoed. the ceo has some serious questions to answer, not least of which, notjust the incident itself... he was paying passenger and they dragged the plane. a p pa re ntly and they dragged the plane. apparently it was because they needed four airline staff to be flown instead. book your airline staff a seat on the plane if it is so important. for decades to come the response from the united airlines department will be used as airlines department will be used as a textbook case of how not to respond. all they said was, we are reaching out to this passenger to talk directly to him. i think they reached out a bit too much! with a very big cheque—book, i suspect. briefly, the front page of the times. the funeral today of the
10:55 pm
policeman who was killed in that attack on westminster, pc keith palmer. thousands of police officers from around the countryjourneyed down to london for the procession of the funeral cortege. hiv drug on the front of the times. scotland gets cancer drug that is too expensive for england. can ijust say, this is the kind of story that makes people draws divisions between england and scotland. the fact scotland is getting cancer drug england is that can't afford, yet english taxpayers subsidise scotland, so annual public spending in scotland is ten and a half thousand, its 8500 innings. that's because the english give the scots a grant to make up for their deprivation. a foolish decision, because it will make people worry about if scotland are getting special treatment very angry. very briefly, the page of the daily mail. the editor of vogue, i know you are afan of the editor of vogue, i know you are
10:56 pm
a fan of fashion and you are into this kind of thing. exactly! i have to say, this guy who's become editor of vogue, i've never heard of a publication which he has editor hated edited, called w. publication which he has editor hated edited, called w. and he used to live in america! isn't it great? for someone who didn't know it was ina for someone who didn't know it was in a magazine dedicated to george w bush, it's dedicated to fashion. british row getting its first mail editor. thank you both. that went so quickly! thank you for watching. don't forget, you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — 7 days a week at — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you jenni and iain. headlines coming up for you shortly. goodbye. if you are on your easter break at
