the 32 man squad for the upcoming friendly with Denmark. It includes a

:00:00.:00:00.

first international call-up for 18-year-old Southampton defender

:00:00.:00:00.

Luke Shaw. That is in 15 minutes, after the papers.

:00:00.:00:18.

It's good to be back. Am I saying that too soon? We will find out in a

:00:19.:00:25.

moment. Welcome to our look ahead at what the papers are bringing us

:00:26.:00:30.

tomorrow. Withers are James Lyons from The Mirror and Eleanor Mills

:00:31.:00:34.

from the Sunday Times. We will begin with the Express. We can show it to

:00:35.:00:39.

you this time! We are a step closer to an anti-ageing drug. The Mirror

:00:40.:00:50.

leads on claims that GCHQ snooped on webcam chats. The Daily Telegraph

:00:51.:00:55.

says that the UK will be a leader in dementia treatment. Yahoo have

:00:56.:00:58.

condemned what they call a completely unacceptable violation of

:00:59.:01:02.

privacy, says the Guardian. The Daily Mail focuses on migration to

:01:03.:01:09.

Britain and split in Cabinet. The Mirror says that dozens of children

:01:10.:01:13.

have been taken into care for being obese. The Times says that dangerous

:01:14.:01:16.

legal highs could be sold on the High Street under plans considered

:01:17.:01:19.

by ministers. Let's start with the Daily Mail, a couple of stories.

:01:20.:01:24.

Migration soars, good says Vince Cable. He mocks the PM's failure to

:01:25.:01:30.

control that EU influx. Another division in the Cabinet? The This

:01:31.:01:34.

could be quite serious. There has been a rocket from up to 212,000, up

:01:35.:01:43.

to 60,000 of the people coming to live and work in the UK. The

:01:44.:01:47.

majority is from the EU. It's interesting, in the light of Angela

:01:48.:01:52.

Merkel coming here today, he said very firmly there was going to be no

:01:53.:01:58.

change on freedom of movement in the UK. It is bad for Cameron because

:01:59.:02:01.

one of his key election pledges was that he was going to get net

:02:02.:02:05.

migration down. And this is really not happening at all. This is pretty

:02:06.:02:09.

bad news in the coalition. Of course, he has Vince Cable, very

:02:10.:02:13.

pro-immigration, hence it's a signee economy is doing really well,

:02:14.:02:18.

crowing about it. So, this is pensions, one might say. And a sign

:02:19.:02:21.

that people want to come and live here, it's a nice place today?

:02:22.:02:26.

Absolutely, the economy is doing well, people are coming here. This

:02:27.:02:30.

was a dividing line during the last election. Vince Cable clearly wants

:02:31.:02:33.

to make it a dividing line that the next election. A lot of people

:02:34.:02:38.

around David told him it was silly to make this pledge and it looks

:02:39.:02:42.

like that now. Buried in this bad news for David Cameron, even more

:02:43.:02:47.

bad news. These figures... You even sound like you are rubbing your

:02:48.:02:52.

hands together! Luff, I'm not, at all! These are 12 month figures to

:02:53.:03:02.

September last year. As we know, the controls on Bulgarian and Romanian

:03:03.:03:05.

immigrants were not lifted until January. In six months time I think

:03:06.:03:08.

we are going to see these figures looking worse. Won't he say, well,

:03:09.:03:12.

this is net migration, it has gone up because lots of people are

:03:13.:03:15.

staying here and don't want to go anywhere else? But that was the

:03:16.:03:19.

promise he made, we had some extraordinary exchanges, where they

:03:20.:03:27.

kept saying to him, is the Prime Minister confident that this

:03:28.:03:30.

election pledge will be met? He kept saying to us, we have got the right

:03:31.:03:34.

policies in place and that is our target. And we would say, but is it

:03:35.:03:41.

going to be met? Hang on, lots of governments of all different

:03:42.:03:43.

complexions have targets and they don't meet them, do they? Well, they

:03:44.:03:50.

should not make them. The measures they are putting in place, they keep

:03:51.:03:52.

talking about what they are trying to do around immigration. They can't

:03:53.:03:59.

do anything! Everything is around non-EU migration. The Which is not

:04:00.:04:04.

the driver. These are terrible headlines for Cameron in terms of

:04:05.:04:09.

the threat from UKIP. It lays into the hands of Nigel Farage. He has a

:04:10.:04:15.

conference tomorrow, I am sure he will put this rampage on the podium.

:04:16.:04:20.

He says the whole point of having to get out of the EU is because we

:04:21.:04:23.

can't control immigration. Nothing that was said, Angela Merkel,

:04:24.:04:27.

however they were trying to spin it in that she might give concessions,

:04:28.:04:31.

it is true, because they can't do anything about freedom of movement.

:04:32.:04:38.

She agrees about curbing benefit migrants. Whatever the government

:04:39.:04:41.

pretends, there are people coming here to work and get jobs. Vince

:04:42.:04:44.

Cable says that, they are coming to fill jobs in the expanding labour

:04:45.:04:50.

market. We still have nearly 1 million young people that can't get

:04:51.:04:56.

jobs. It's not good politics for David Cameron. Can anyone out there

:04:57.:05:02.

differentiate between EU and non-EU migration, or do they just see that

:05:03.:05:06.

migration is going up? It doesn't matter where they are coming from,

:05:07.:05:09.

if you don't like migration do you care? There are really stupid things

:05:10.:05:14.

going on in the name of trying to get down non-EU migration. A lot of

:05:15.:05:17.

people that want to come here from China, as tourists sought to study,

:05:18.:05:21.

are being told they can't. There has been a public relations disaster in

:05:22.:05:26.

India. A lot of students were coming to the UK and because of the

:05:27.:05:29.

tightening up on visas to study they are not coming, which will cost us a

:05:30.:05:33.

fortune. The whole policy does not work. One of the big entertainment

:05:34.:05:37.

firms, don't know if I am allowed to mention it? They were complaining

:05:38.:05:43.

that they run the attractions in London and they say the Visa system

:05:44.:05:46.

for Chinese people are stopping people coming here and costing loads

:05:47.:05:49.

of money and jobs. We seem to have ended up with the worst of all

:05:50.:05:53.

worlds. Still loads of people coming from Europe that we can't do

:05:54.:05:55.

anything about, at the same time, we are stopping the lucrative tourist

:05:56.:06:02.

market. You managed not to sound fully for them. Well, it's bad for

:06:03.:06:09.

everyone. Patricia Hewitt, I was wrong over PIE. This is the former

:06:10.:06:12.

Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt, general secretary of the National

:06:13.:06:18.

Council For Civil Liberties in the 1970s, which had links with this

:06:19.:06:23.

Paedophile Information Exchange, which claimed it was not a

:06:24.:06:26.

campaigning group to encourage legalising sex with children.

:06:27.:06:32.

Patricia Hewitt has now come out and said very emphatically denies that

:06:33.:06:35.

she was wrong not to have done something about that. Slightly

:06:36.:06:40.

unfair, she has finally apologised, it says, she has been out of the

:06:41.:06:43.

country for the last 12 days which is why she has not responded to the

:06:44.:06:47.

stuff that was going on. She didn't leave any room for doubts over his

:06:48.:06:52.

regrets? No, she has definitely given a masterclass in how to deal

:06:53.:07:01.

with this sort of thing. Harriet Harman problems, that she has had

:07:02.:07:04.

this week, have by and large been caused by the way she responded to

:07:05.:07:10.

this and the failure to fully explain the situation, as she saw it

:07:11.:07:14.

at the time. To admit that clearly mistakes had been made. They might

:07:15.:07:17.

not have been mistakes she made, that mistakes were clearly made. I

:07:18.:07:21.

think it was the failure to clearly say that in the interview at the

:07:22.:07:27.

start of this week. I think it is very interesting that she has said

:07:28.:07:32.

it so unequivocally, so did Sammy Chakravarty, from Liberty, there

:07:33.:07:42.

were questions over why she found it so difficult to say this was not a

:07:43.:07:48.

good thing that happened in the 70s, it was another era, it was

:07:49.:07:51.

misguided, they were wrong. The other two have said it, I don't know

:07:52.:07:55.

why she finds it so difficult. Isn't there a difference to be drawn here?

:07:56.:08:00.

Patricia Hewitt says, I had a close link because of my role... They had

:08:01.:08:06.

different jobs. If we are being realistic about this, Patricia

:08:07.:08:09.

Hewitt is no longer a front line politician. Therefore, it is easier

:08:10.:08:14.

for her to say sorry, easier for her to draw a line under it. If Harriet

:08:15.:08:19.

Harman had spoken out in such aliphatic way, she knew that her

:08:20.:08:25.

enemies were waiting to pounce. She could have drawn a line under this a

:08:26.:08:29.

week ago by saying, you know, it was a different era, we were totally

:08:30.:08:33.

wrong, it was bizarre, it now looks really awful and the other two have

:08:34.:08:37.

done the right thing. I think she played it incredibly badly. Let's

:08:38.:08:40.

look at the Telegraph. A really interesting photograph of when Dave

:08:41.:08:50.

met Angela. It interesting to hear her speak English today. You don't

:08:51.:08:53.

hear it very often. They look like they are about to kiss. It's a bit

:08:54.:09:06.

Four Weddings And A Funeral. They described the relationship as him

:09:07.:09:11.

being at the naughty nephew, which is really weird. The strangest

:09:12.:09:16.

description I have heard between world leaders. Somebody at Number 10

:09:17.:09:22.

really got that wrong. It seems almost sinister. This is a very old

:09:23.:09:28.

picture. They do look quite chummy. The other pictures I saw, they

:09:29.:09:32.

looked extremely on edge, staring daggers at each other if they were

:09:33.:09:35.

looking at each other at all. There was an odd picture of him in the

:09:36.:09:40.

kitchen at Number 10, or I should say one of the Cameron's kitchens.

:09:41.:09:45.

They have two kitchens! His and hers. They had to put in a nicer

:09:46.:09:52.

kitchen when they came in. Gordon Brown's kitchen was a bit grotty.

:09:53.:09:58.

Samantha Cameron likes a nice kitchen. I don't think the Telegraph

:09:59.:10:01.

is talking about the kitchens, they are talking about the relationship

:10:02.:10:05.

in two nations and what don't think the Telegraph is talking about the

:10:06.:10:07.

kitchens, they are talking about the relationship in two nations and

:10:08.:10:11.

what's given on Twitter is the kitchen and the box set! There was a

:10:12.:10:18.

whole James Bond set... Shall we move on and say it didn't go well? A

:10:19.:10:30.

?60 yellow toaster! Right, the first three-parent babies

:10:31.:10:34.

next year. This is also in the Telegraph. Well,

:10:35.:10:40.

this is the move of the genetic equivalent of changing a faulty

:10:41.:10:44.

battery in a car. I think she thought that would sound reassuring

:10:45.:10:48.

but it doesn't. It is unfortunate. You would have to

:10:49.:10:54.

be the Chief Medical Fer. This is about couples having IVF

:10:55.:11:00.

treatment for severe disabilities, so that they are offered a downer

:11:01.:11:06.

bit of genetic code from another woman's egg to stop the likely hooud

:11:07.:11:11.

of passing on that genetic condition. So there is science

:11:12.:11:14.

behind this. But people have an issue with it? It

:11:15.:11:21.

has gone through the HE Fay. I think it is a good idea. If you are a

:11:22.:11:26.

family with those kinds of degenerative diseases, and you can

:11:27.:11:31.

Boro a tiny bit. It is literally the sack that the rest of the genetic

:11:32.:11:36.

stuff sits in, coming from the other egg and if you can do that it means

:11:37.:11:41.

you don't get a child that suffers from this terrible disease, why not?

:11:42.:11:46.

Should we be even thinking of stopping it happen, if you can stop

:11:47.:11:53.

these awful diseases? This has clear fantastic potential. I don't think

:11:54.:11:57.

that anyone would want to stand in their way? Well, there is a bit of a

:11:58.:12:02.

yuck factor about it. The Metro: The spy who loved me,

:12:03.:12:08.

naked on webcam. You, do you love this? But there is a serious side to

:12:09.:12:15.

it. It is a bit Carry On Spying. The way it sounds? People caught naked

:12:16.:12:22.

on a webcam, but the fact that GCHQ have been looking at the pictures

:12:23.:12:26.

and storing them? And apparently that one in nine has undesirable

:12:27.:12:32.

nudity. This is not my definition. I cannot really help you with the

:12:33.:12:36.

definition, but this is what the spy chiefs think is undesirable.

:12:37.:12:43.

This is Operation Optic Nerve. Yes and there are apparently 1. 8

:12:44.:12:50.

million images. I think that is about 160,000 images of undesirable

:12:51.:12:54.

nudity. Good maths! For those who may be

:12:55.:12:59.

worried about this, apparently the operation ran from 2008 until 2010

:13:00.:13:04.

and possibly a little after that. Lots of people thinking did they

:13:05.:13:08.

have a webcam then. And the serious part, GCHQ were

:13:09.:13:16.

trying to try out facial recognition software to help them track down

:13:17.:13:20.

terrorists, so they stored millions of images from webcams trying to do

:13:21.:13:25.

that but of course they got a lot of things that were not faces! And of

:13:26.:13:31.

course the worry is that WikiLeaks could get hold of it.

:13:32.:13:35.

Do you think that they have bottom recognition? Maybe not. I don't have

:13:36.:13:40.

a webcam, so I can rest easy! That is the papers for this hour, but we

:13:41.:13:46.

are back later for another look at the front pages. Stay with us on the

:13:47.:13:52.

BBC News. Peter Robinson welcomes a judge-led inquiry to letters sent to

:13:53.:13:58.

Republican suspects, telling them they would not be prosecuted. Coming

:13:59.:14:01.

up next is Sportsday. Hello and welcome to Sportsday with

:14:02.:14:13.

me Tim Hague. Here's what's to come tonight: Spurs stage an amazing

:14:14.:14:17.

comeback to keep their European adventure
