champions, chasing a double. manchester city had a difficult start to the season, their squad decimated by injury but they have now won 13 games on a roll across all competitions, including the league cup final against chelsea. it is so hard to call this one. five of the last finals have been won by either of these two is sites, two titans of the women's game. what will be great for the profile of women's football is it is being held on the sunday afternoon, the match will be live on bbc one at 2:30pm. you can listen live on five live sports extra as well. growing the women's game is incredibly important for the fa and this is a fantastic way to do it. they expect 55,000 fans here to witness that event. thank you very much. there is coverage on bbc one this afternoon.
9:36 am
let us leave the sport now. it will feature on the front pages as well as the back pages of the newspapers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will bring us tomorrow. with me are property & personal finance commentator anne ashworth and westminster editor, daily record, torcuil crighton. welcome back this level lovely morning. —— this lovely morning. the observer says many school buildings in england are now in such disrepair they are now a �*risk to life' — according to internal government documents leaked to the paper. the express says chancellor rishi sunak has promised that he will do �*everything in his power�* to help with the cost of living crisis. the sunday times is going with tax — saying one in five workers will be
9:37 am
paying higher or top—rate tax by the next general election. staying with the cost of living — the sunday telegraph says cabinet ministers have turned on the bank of england over rising inflation. and the independent has liverpool winning the fa cup — they managed a six—five win over chelsea on penalties at wembley earlier today. so let�*s begin... we will start with the observer. do you want to kick off on this? it is a disturbing _ you want to kick off on this? it 3 a disturbing headline. it is a very disturbing headline, such as the state of many of our school buildings they are indeed a risk to life. they�*re a great cause for rishi sunak to fund some urgent repairs. there is quite a lot already spent on school buildings but it looks as if this is a crucial part of national infrastructure plan they repaired. this is the vein of all the front pages today, what will
9:38 am
happen to the economy, the cost of living and indeed how we will rebuild parts of britain. if you�*re a parent that letter, you would wonder exactly what kind of surroundings your child is learning in. i surroundings your child is learning in. ~ ., ., surroundings your child is learning in. ~' . ., ., surroundings your child is learning in. «a, ., ., ., surroundings your child is learning in. i think a lot of head teachers will be getting _ in. i think a lot of head teachers will be getting anxious - in. i think a lot of head teachers will be getting anxious e-mailsl in. i think a lot of head teachers i will be getting anxious e-mails and will be getting anxious e—mails and phone calls tomorrow about their school buildings. there are two kinds of possible groups to criticise for this, take your choice i suspect. i noticed criticise for this, take your choice isuspect. i noticed in criticise for this, take your choice i suspect. i noticed in the financial times yesterday, the government minister was saying in a row view about a book on the chancellor of the ex what a mess up labour had made of the private finance initiative in the 90s which was used to fund a lot of school buildings. labour critics will say this is the legacy of austerity in the 2010s.
9:39 am
this is the legacy of austerity in the 2010s— this is the legacy of austerity in the 2010s. , ., ., . the 2010s. yes, the private finance initiative the 2010s. yes, the private finance initiative is — the 2010s. yes, the private finance initiative is ancient _ the 2010s. yes, the private finance initiative is ancient history. - the 2010s. yes, the private finance initiative is ancient history. this - initiative is ancient history. this is a classic whitehall battle. if you want to pick sides it is either the department for education and —— or the treasury. there is a £30 million hole in the roof of england schools which needs to be fixed. it is quite a job the observer has done with the pictures and the features and experience of head teachers dealing with these, emptying buckets of rainwater before the children come into class. you feel the department for education is trying to put pressure on rishi sunak to deliver the £13 billion. no one is under more pressure than rishi sunak in the uk. the cost of living is across all the newspapers. front of the sunday — across all the newspapers. front of the sunday express, _ across all the newspapers. front of the sunday express, rishi - across all the newspapers. front of the sunday express, rishi sunak, l across all the newspapers. front of the sunday express, rishi sunak, i | the sunday express, rishi sunak, i am ready to help with the cost of living crisis. the message a few
9:40 am
days ago was we are going to wait and see and find out what the situation is in the economy, i guess the government believes that line is not going to hold until the budget. rishi sunak has tried to hold it, he has given a first person piece to the sunday express. he said he would do everything, that really is a holding statement, no commitments in there. the sunday express team have spoken to backbench tory mps and they expect an emergency budget in everything but name within weeks or certainly before the autumn statement. again, pressure piling on rishi sunak to do something about the soaring cost of living, rising power bills and of course inflation going through the roof as well. just before i move on, what is the sense of the lobby, you spend a lot of time with journalists and with
9:41 am
politicians, is there a sense that the spring statement did not hack it? it the spring statement did not hack it? ., ., . , , it? it did not even touch the sides. it was a disaster _ it? it did not even touch the sides. it was a disaster and _ it? it did not even touch the sides. it was a disaster and followed - it? it did not even touch the sides. it was a disaster and followed by i it was a disaster and followed by the shredding of rishi sunak's political— the shredding of rishi sunak's political reputation regarding his wife's _ political reputation regarding his wife's tax status and his own. there was a _ wife's tax status and his own. there was a demand from all sides to be seen _ was a demand from all sides to be seen to— was a demand from all sides to be seen to he — was a demand from all sides to be seen to be doing something. the government have announced a prescription freeze in england overnight, briefed back to the sunday— overnight, briefed back to the sunday papers. they are looking at other_ sunday papers. they are looking at other things but deeper leavers need to be pulled, people are demanding this 2020 _ to be pulled, people are demanding this 2020 for tax—cut, the penny promised — this 2020 for tax—cut, the penny promised for next year, they want it brought— promised for next year, they want it brought forward now. but if you bring _ brought forward now. but if you bring that — brought forward now. but if you bring that forward, you are starting -- firing _ bring that forward, you are starting -- firing the — bring that forward, you are starting —— firing the starting gun on an election — —— firing the starting gun on an election it— —— firing the starting gun on an election. it might be the last throw of the _ election. it might be the last throw of the cards for boris johnson as every— of the cards for boris johnson as every other crisis begins to close
9:42 am
in on _ every other crisis begins to close in on downing street.— every other crisis begins to close in on downing street. what do you make of the _ in on downing street. what do you make of the pleasures _ in on downing street. what do you make of the pleasures on - in on downing street. what do you make of the pleasures on rishi - make of the pleasures on rishi sunak? there is a survey suggesting a significant number of people want and expect the government to help. i think the expectation is growing that the government will act but it is not clear what can do. that has been a lot of talk about a windfall tax on the energy companies but big? as to whether that will raise enough money and also discourage investment in renewables. but it is clear in some research that bottom earners will be cutting discretionary spending by 20%, such is the pension their household budgets. it is quite clear that ritchie soon act needs to act but i think he does not know what he wants to do or can do. —— that rishi sunak. or what is expected of him. there is some
9:43 am
feeling in the papers, they needed to politically sing, that his appeal to politically sing, that his appeal to all voters. so rishi sunak will have a wet towel on his head trying to work out what to do exactly, where he will get money quickly and how he can relieve the pain very quickly. we are seeing, just across the papers, this cost of living is the papers, this cost of living is the biggest political issue facing the biggest political issue facing the government and this is the rock, the government and this is the rock, the hill on which they could die. if the hill on which they could die. if the wet towel treatment does not work, there is an alternative idea in the express which is the government should appoint a cost—of—living minister. 83% of people surveyed saying that. let us move on from that to the sunday times. very interesting this, knew pressure about tax bands. {lime
9:44 am
times. very interesting this, knew pressure about tax bands. once upon a time being — pressure about tax bands. once upon a time being a _ pressure about tax bands. once upon a time being a higher _ pressure about tax bands. once upon a time being a higher rate _ pressure about tax bands. once upon a time being a higher rate taxpayer i a time being a higher rate taxpayer used to mean you are in at —— affluent person but now, thanks to the freezing of the tax thresholds, a lot more people are paying higher rate tax or the high street attacks. by rate tax or the high street attacks. by about 2024, almost 20 million people will be in that category. people who do not regard themselves as affluent. so they are paying a lot more tax, there was some concession on the national insurance but that is quite a hit. there�*s also some sort of controversy as to whether we are really getting enough tax out of the very very highest paid. but again whenever governments try to do that, it does not raise sufficient revenue. the most effective way of getting money under taxation is to tax the ordinary worker, it brings rebellion straightaway, however i think as
9:45 am
people wake up to the state of their finances and the squeeze they are feeling, the pressure is only going to grow on rishi sunak and whether we have a cost—of—living minister or not, is not the chancellor the cost of living minister? iam baffled by this. if you create as are for something doesn�*t solve the problem? i do not think it does. to something doesn't solve the problem? i do not think it does.— i do not think it does. to be fare, the government _ i do not think it does. to be fare, the government has _ i do not think it does. to be fare, the government has not - i do not think it does. to be fare, l the government has not suggested i do not think it does. to be fare, - the government has not suggested it. it is the pressure to do it. he would be lucky if he was as successful as denis howell who was made the minister for drought in 1976 and it started raining the next day. maybe that is the case for the cost of living minister. talking about the property market, talking about the property market, talking about the property market, talking about the problem of getting money out of the very wealthy, the public perception as they do not pay their fair share. perception as they do not pay their fairshare. counciltax perception as they do not pay their fair share. council tax bands have not made since it was introduced
9:46 am
really, i wonder if that is an area where the government could look for extra revenue?— where the government could look for extra revenue? they are -- i am sure the are extra revenue? they are -- i am sure they are looking — extra revenue? they are -- i am sure they are looking for— extra revenue? they are -- i am sure they are looking for ways _ extra revenue? they are -- i am sure they are looking for ways to _ extra revenue? they are -- i am sure they are looking for ways to tax - they are looking for ways to tax property more heavily however, if you�*re going to have at council tax reorganisation root and branch, won�*t that take a lot of time? there will need to be a revaluation and people will start to dispute the value given to their houses. however it is clear that on many wealthy homeowners who should be paying more tax. however, those may be the very voters that the government does not wish to offend. also there is also the problem that there will be the argument that there was one person in a very large house, could they afford to be a lot more council tax? but property and especially property owned by overseas investors in london has got to be a place where the government is looking to raise
9:47 am
more revenue. they already get some revenue from that and they need i am sure to find other ways. let revenue from that and they need i am sure to find other ways.— sure to find other ways. let us turn to the telegraph. _ sure to find other ways. let us turn to the telegraph. ministers - sure to find other ways. let us turn to the telegraph. ministers turn i sure to find other ways. let us turn to the telegraph. ministers turn on the bank of england, the politicians all said it was a splendid idea a few years back that the bank of england should have independence to stop politicians meddling. that england should have independence to stop politicians meddling.— stop politicians meddling. that was an idea in 1997. _ stop politicians meddling. that was an idea in 1997. but _ stop politicians meddling. that was an idea in 1997. but now _ stop politicians meddling. that was an idea in 1997. but now we - stop politicians meddling. that was an idea in 1997. but now we have . an idea in 1997. but now we have government ministers or unnamed government ministers or unnamed government ministers or unnamed government ministers skip in the bank of england with problems. the bank of england with problems. the bank of england raised interest rates to try and keep they felt inflation would be 5% a couple of months ago, now bank of england thinks it will be 10%. ministers have said they only have one job to
9:48 am
do which is keep inflation down by increasing interest rates but the fear is you will lead to a 1970s situation, high inflation, high interest rates, low growth and in the queen�*s speech response this week, that was kier starmer�*s attack line. the government are doing nothing and we�*re heading back to the 1970s, a period of low growth and low wages or wages overtaken by rampant inflation and high interest rates. i rampant inflation and high interest rates. , ,, . rampant inflation and high interest rates. ,,,. ,, ,, rates. i suspect nobody is pressing for governments _ rates. i suspect nobody is pressing for governments to _ rates. i suspect nobody is pressing for governments to restore - rates. i suspect nobody is pressing for governments to restore the i rates. i suspect nobody is pressing i for governments to restore the power to interest rates because it is another thing to attack government ministers if they get it wrong. to be fair to the bank, it is a problem which applies in other places, the federal reserve has been getting it in the neck over its handling of inflation. ., , inflation. the federal reserve, the us inflation. the federal reserve, the us central, _ inflation. the federal reserve, the us central, was _ inflation. the federal reserve, the us central, was saying _ inflation. the federal reserve, the us central, was saying for - inflation. the federal reserve, the us central, was saying for much i us central, was saying for much longer— us central, was saying for much longer than it should have done,
