Police and St Lucia are questioning three men about the death of British


man Roger Pratt, who was killed as he tried to protect his wife from


attackers on board their yacht. Hello and welcome to our look ahead


to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With us are Tom Chivers


of the Telegraph and Anne Ashworth. Both of your papers are in the


stack. Let's start with the front pages. A photo of British man Roger


Pratt, murdered whilst holidaying with his wife Margaret in St Lucia,


is on the front page of the Telegraph. The paper also carries a


special report claims that UK is Lynne is fighting in Syria have been


trained to return to this country to carry out attacks -- is Lynne is


this. Chocolate can cut the risk of


developing diabetes, says the Daily Express. The paper reports that red


wine, tea and berries also help. Teachers and 130 public schools have


been implicated in sex crimes against hundreds of children, claims


the Times. A dramatic picture of violent protests in the Ukrainian


capital Kiev is on the front page of the Financial Times. The paper also


reports that David Cameron may be isolating himself in Europe. And the


Queen is taking a back-seat when it comes to some royal, says the Daily


Mirror. Prince Charles is stepping in and taking the reins in what is


seen as a move towards him becoming king. And the Daily Mail runs with


its main story on a letter from Iain Duncan Smith entries may saying


Britain's welfare system should not be a magnet for members of other EU


states. So let's begin, starting with the Guardian. The headliners,


patient records to be sold from NHS database. This is a single English


database of medical information that is being created. We're getting


through the post. I certainly have, information saying, if you want to


opt out of the ability for this information to be shared more


widely, that is what you need to do. On the face of it, Tom, this is


something that might make a lot of people fearful. It may do. People


are now so constantly aware of threats to privacy from all sorts of


routes, but this is, to me this seems a pretty straightforwardly


good thing. I was speaking to some people yesterday, and they feel it


is absolutely, this will allow huge improvements in how they can share


and therefore do research. Things that are difficult to do


old-fashioned, randomised controlled trials, they will be easier to do.


Things like the link between autism and MMR, the disapproving of that,


was possible through medical data through this. They just looked at


the data. Exactly, they looked at the data of people who had been


treated in the past. It's genuinely saves lives. Of course, there are


concerns over privacy and it has to be dealt with sensibly. But I think


this is one of those times when privacy is not a problem. This is a


way of saving lives. I wonder if anyone doesn't have our data


already? There are concerns as to who will have access to these


records. You don't have a choice in who gets the information. You either


have to say, no, I don't want it to give a note or I do. There is no


halfway. It does for the first time explained that rather strange letter


that we got from the NHS. Askin about, reassuring us about the way


in which our information was being shared. It is a flyer that comes


through the door explaining the situation, it is not addressed to us


individually, necessarily. Isn't it the case that a lot of people just


will not act upon it, either through inertia are not understanding the


implications? That may well be the case. Presumably those people are


not overly worried about the NHS having their data. You are now


beginning to assume that nothing is private any more. That all


information is being shared. We know from previous editions of the


Guardian and all of the Snowdon revelations that nothing is secret


any more. But I just love this word, pseudonymous Asian, which is making


all of the information anonymous. -- pseudonymisation. This article says


the extracted information will contain your NHS number, unique to


the individual, date of birth, postcode, you could probably find


out who that is. There will be times when data can only be useful when it


is barely identifiable. In those cases, clinicians will have to make


stringent cases. -- fairly identifiable. They will have to make


a case to the regulator. Normally it is not quite as straightforward as


that. The conspiracy theorists will pounce on this story, but I think we


all have to conclude that it is essentially for our good. Let's move


on and look at the Daily Telegraph. Britain sent by Al-Qaeda -- Britons


sent by Al-Qaeda. Security forces reckon there are about 500 British


people who have gone to take up arms in Syria. And they will bring back


with them at some point the skills, if you can college that, the


know-how of how to stage attacks like 9/11, like the July bombings in


London. This is a new aspects to the Syrian conflict, this idea that it


is becoming a training place. This place really have advanced tutorials


on how to become a terrorist. Late last year, MI5 were talking about


that being one of the central concerns about Syria. But it was a


training ground for terrorists who can attack us here. This is putting


flesh on the bones of those fears. If there are over 500, might they


have an idea of who the 500 are? You wonder, although how often has that


worked in the past? It's amazing how much the security services delve


into our lives and then let people slip through anyway. I think this is


going to be high on the agenda, at the Geneva II talks. As to exactly


how Al-Qaeda is allowed, is sending out its emissary is all over the


world from the Syrian conflict. We know that the Syrian opposition is


made up of so many factions, and that Al-Qaeda is such a powerful


part of that, . Only last Friday, two men from Birmingham were


charged, we reported it year, with travelling to Syria to carry out


acts of terrorism. The assumption wasn't necessarily that they were


going to bring that back here, which is a very different thing. It has


always been what happens for ever with terrorist cells, they go to the


lawless places in the world. The Yemen, Afghanistan, places on the


Pakistan border. Syria has exploded, it is now a lawless place where you


can learn to fight and go and fight and learn these awful skills. It is


a sobering, serious night in the newspapers. It is the second story


that causes you to think. Very serious story. Let's stay with the


Telegraph. Lord Rennard is ready to defy Clegg and rejoin the Lib Dem


peer 's. This story has been bubbling away for days and will be


very interesting tomorrow. Nick Clegg wants an apology from Lord


Rennard. He continues to say he has not done anything wrong. There is


now beyond reasonable doubt case to be brought against him. -- no


reasonable doubt case. It is not something that can be actions. --


actioned legally. Nick Clegg is in a bind with this. Poor Nick Clegg. The


man keeps getting caught up in what is essentially the minutia of the


management of his party rather than forming policy. For women for


example, this is going to put the Lib Dems in quite a poor light. That


is exactly what Nick Clegg is wanting to avoid. But there doesn't


seem to be any way out for him. Neither are his peers in the Lords


giving Nick Clegg and out, I can't understand why. Somebody should be


finding a graceful exit from the situation. He ends up looking so


weak. Without worrying about the situation, by crikey, I demand an


apology. How can you demand an apology from someone who maintains,


still says I have not done anything wrong. There is no case being


brought against me. It is not up to the party leader to decide. It is up


to the peers. It almost looks like a foregone conclusion that it will


happen tomorrow. The biggest split seems to be between the two sides of


what is quite a small party. 54 seats. Yet this is beginning to


overwhelm everything else that we know about the Lib Dems. Let's look


at the Times. 130 primary -- drive its schools in -- Private schools.


Implicated in sex crimes against hundreds of children. Can I show you


the graphic? I don't think we can any more. Where are you? There you


are, not the women in the low-cut top, it is this. This is very, very


well-known schools, top schools in the country. Places like Eton


College and the like. Connected with this decades of abuse. I find


interesting, one of the reasons why this is all coming to light is that


people are more willing, it is no more respectable to say this is


abuse, not the sort of thing we don't talk about. I remember reading


in Richard Dawkins' biography, something that happened in school.


Growing up with a stiff upper lip. Your parents are paying handsomely


for it. Exactly, so you can't complain, but note, this is not all


right. It is the reputation of the schools that is damaged. They will


be concerned by this story. Some teachers seem to have been prolific


abusers allowed to move from job to job, that is the thing that will


most concerned parents. Let's finish with the Financial Times. Here we


are. It is more reliable, me holding it up. Cameron at odds with EU


allies on migration. David Cameron was hoping that Germany and a few


others would support him on restricting movement around the EU.


But they think it is a really good idea, so they are not going to. They


have got an influx of educated Italians, Spaniards, who have


learned the language and they see it has done wonders for their


workforce, probably boosted their economy. Cameron had, for some


reason, thought that the Germans would side with him. It must have


come from somewhere, in the corridors of power in Brussels, some


conference or other, he must have got the distinct impression from


somebody in Germany. It would require completely uprooting


everything that the whole system is based around. You wonder if it is


almost wishful thinking thing, he realises the only way he can sell


the EU to his own party and to the Eurosceptic wing is by saying,


please someone in Germany just throw me a bone. He won't get many


concessions. Now, all alone. It shows again, migration, the big


political topic. We are some way off the election but we are not done


talking about it. We will carry on talking about it at 11:30pm as well.


Anna and Tom will be back with us again. Stay with us here on BBC


News. We will have more about the pressure mounting against Lord


Rennard, the Lib Dem peer. Next, it is time for Click.


Engine off. No, engine off. Engine off!
