World Championships. That is all in 15 minutes.

:00:00.:00:15.

Welcome to look ahead at what the papers will be bringing us

:00:16.:00:21.

tomorrow. With us at John Stapleton and Henry Bonsu. Tomorrow's front

:00:22.:00:28.

pages of looking like this. The Crimea invasion is the

:00:29.:00:32.

Independent's headline. People waiting three weeks to see

:00:33.:00:36.

their GP. Allies of David Cameron are urging

:00:37.:00:39.

Boris Johnson to try to return to the Commons.

:00:40.:00:44.

A picture of Joanna Dennehy, who was jailed for life today.

:00:45.:00:50.

The suggestion that house prices are rising at their fastest rate of four

:00:51.:00:54.

years. You might expect that to make many

:00:55.:00:58.

of the papers have chosen to focus on the worsening situation in

:00:59.:01:03.

Ukraine, particularly in the Crimean region. The Independent has dramatic

:01:04.:01:08.

photographs of the activity. The Guardian has Cossacks rallying

:01:09.:01:17.

at the Crimean parliament. Suggestions of a full`scale assault

:01:18.:01:20.

from Moscow. This particular front pages were

:01:21.:01:24.

printed and we have had a statement from Barack Obama talking about the

:01:25.:01:30.

view from Washington of what is going on. The developments look like

:01:31.:01:34.

some kind of military intervention already. They do. The Independent

:01:35.:01:44.

calls it an invasion,. It is naked aggression. We have got the literary

:01:45.:01:54.

`` militarily people, people blocking the harbour at Sebastopol,

:01:55.:02:04.

government buildings being invaded. It looks like an invasion. It looks

:02:05.:02:11.

at Kiev has lost control of this. We must remember that it has a majority

:02:12.:02:19.

of the population supporting Russia. It is a very worrying situation. Not

:02:20.:02:24.

just for that part of the world, but the whole of Europe. Hopefully not a

:02:25.:02:29.

shot being fired. This suggested that will premiere wanting greater

:02:30.:02:35.

autonomy does not see itself as part of Ukraine, but leaning towards

:02:36.:02:42.

Russia. Ethnic mix, proximity, history, and President Putin wants

:02:43.:02:49.

to show that the United States is not the only remaining superpower.

:02:50.:02:57.

The rest of the world has to listen and give Russia respect. That is one

:02:58.:03:05.

of the things that the old guard really regretted, the loss of

:03:06.:03:10.

respect and influence. I think Putin is just playing around. He is

:03:11.:03:14.

keeping everybody guessing. He knows that whatever Obama says, whatever

:03:15.:03:19.

it David Cameron, whatever the other leaders say, they cannot do

:03:20.:03:27.

anything. Russia is rich and saying that we are in control. This is our

:03:28.:03:32.

backyard. We can do whatever we want. When William Hague goes to

:03:33.:03:42.

talk on Sunday, he will remind Russia that only in 1994 they signed

:03:43.:03:45.

an agreement saying he would not reach Ukraine's integrity. `` they

:03:46.:03:56.

would not breach. Crimea is still part of Ukraine. A US official has

:03:57.:04:04.

been quoted following in that statement from Barack Obama saying

:04:05.:04:07.

that a US response to any Russian intervention could include avoiding

:04:08.:04:11.

deeper trade and commercial ties that Moscow is seeking. That sounds

:04:12.:04:21.

a bit weak. This is a country that financially is on its knees, the

:04:22.:04:27.

Ukraine. Irrespective of what happens. This is talking about

:04:28.:04:32.

greater ties between America and Russia. What else can they do at the

:04:33.:04:40.

moment? Do the Russians really need the Americans? They have got the

:04:41.:04:49.

rest of the world. Countries like Nigeria. Russia is getting into

:04:50.:04:53.

Africa and China. It can go anywhere they want. Emerging markets where it

:04:54.:05:12.

is at. The United States have Russia critical in various elements of

:05:13.:05:17.

foreign policy. Absolutely. This is like manner from heaven for them.

:05:18.:05:25.

Some people see President Obama as we con foreign policy. President

:05:26.:05:30.

Putin knows he can get away with this. `` week on. Not much the

:05:31.:05:43.

Security Council can do. There is not much they can do but to say,

:05:44.:05:49.

please back off. President Putin is playing this very intelligently.

:05:50.:05:56.

This is naked aggression, but not a shop has been fired. He has made the

:05:57.:06:06.

point. `` shot. That is as far as you go. Do not get cute. As far as

:06:07.:06:11.

president Obama is concerned, he has a war weary public. He is doing what

:06:12.:06:17.

the American people want, not getting involved.

:06:18.:06:23.

Let us move on to the Scotsman. They have also got a picture on their

:06:24.:06:28.

front page of the crisis escalating. The main story tonight, airline

:06:29.:06:34.

bosses boost for yes campaign. These are the bosses saying that

:06:35.:06:41.

independence would be positive for the industry. That is at odds with

:06:42.:06:50.

some other businesses. They have said... It depends who you believe.

:06:51.:06:58.

It is all to do with the Caroline duty. `` airline. They say that they

:06:59.:07:08.

will reduce the duty. That is music to the ears of these men. How many

:07:09.:07:19.

flights are we talking about? I do not know. But it is obviously worth

:07:20.:07:27.

their while. They would have more routes. I am finding this

:07:28.:07:36.

interesting. Is this going to come down to which companies are for and

:07:37.:07:42.

against? I am sure it is not. I am sure others will come out in the

:07:43.:07:45.

next few days and weeks saying where they stand. Probably not. I suspect

:07:46.:07:58.

this is helping crystallise the issues for a lot of people. A lot of

:07:59.:08:05.

people have wanted independence. You are coming off as a bit Scottish.

:08:06.:08:15.

For a lot of people, they will have to wait. They will have the chance

:08:16.:08:19.

to see the arguments crystallise. Is it about maintaining the pound,

:08:20.:08:25.

going into bit coin? Is it about employment. If businesses are going

:08:26.:08:33.

south, that is going to threaten people in their pocket. Do not toys

:08:34.:08:41.

bit coin. `` choose. Very interesting. We have only got a few

:08:42.:08:48.

months ago. It is really going to galvanise. I put independence was on

:08:49.:08:54.

the way, then after the news about the pound, maybe not. The arguments

:08:55.:09:02.

need to flesh out. This will give it a bit more meat. The Daily Mirror. A

:09:03.:09:10.

picture of Joanna Dennehy, who has been sentenced to life in prison.

:09:11.:09:15.

She has been told that she will die in jail. That is apparently what she

:09:16.:09:24.

said to police as she was arrested. A horrible story. People did no that

:09:25.:09:33.

she was suffering from serious mental health problems. This is the

:09:34.:09:38.

problem. If you have a mental health condition, that can only be treated

:09:39.:09:42.

with hospital. If it is at a nature and degree that warrants adequate

:09:43.:09:50.

intervention, you can be detained. But if it is not clearly defined and

:09:51.:09:56.

is not treatable and you have not committed a crime, you cannot be,

:09:57.:10:02.

that is unlawful. In the case of this woman, she is young but has a

:10:03.:10:08.

history of mental health problems. Psychologists have given her

:10:09.:10:17.

commission a name. She gets the sexual excitement from healing paint

:10:18.:10:28.

to other people. `` are dealing. Can we judge her in the way that we

:10:29.:10:34.

judge somebody in command or control of their faculties? Appalling,

:10:35.:10:39.

horrific and terrible what she did was, is it evil? She has had a

:10:40.:10:46.

history and medical intervention has not helped. Having said that,

:10:47.:10:52.

knowing what she done... A lot of people will be thinking it is a good

:10:53.:10:59.

thing, to be honest. Absolutely. We will see a lot of these. After

:11:00.:11:11.

Michael Adebolajo. Absolutely. Moving on to the Times. Politics.

:11:12.:11:16.

David Cameron's allies telling Boris Johnson to run for Parliament. If

:11:17.:11:23.

you run for Parliament as an MP, he would then be entitled to challenge

:11:24.:11:28.

for the leadership. At the moment he cannot. I have no reason to doubt

:11:29.:11:38.

the credibility of this whatsoever. It is interesting timing. There is a

:11:39.:11:44.

suggestion that if David Cameron did not have an overall majority at the

:11:45.:11:47.

next election he might go through what Michael Howard did. That would

:11:48.:11:53.

have enabled David Cameron to move them. Whether Boris would be the

:11:54.:11:59.

choice of everyone in the Conservative party is a different

:12:00.:12:05.

question. I do not believe the old guard would be as keen as younger

:12:06.:12:09.

people. He is a great character. Absolutely. Not a man of detail. You

:12:10.:12:20.

have two master the brief and know the detail. Boris Johnson has shown

:12:21.:12:34.

he does not. I am not sure he would be able to b`day party in

:12:35.:12:45.

opposition. `` to lead a. It be interesting to see how plays outside

:12:46.:12:53.

of London. I am not certain he would be a big hit.

:12:54.:13:01.

Daily Mail. Probably our last one. Millions of patients being denied a

:13:02.:13:06.

prompt appointment with their GP. A variable experience of trying to get

:13:07.:13:14.

a doctors appointment the day. Only one in three getting a seven`day

:13:15.:13:21.

appointment. I happen to be interested in the issue on dementia

:13:22.:13:25.

and the difficulties and the wait for diagnosis. That is a bit

:13:26.:13:30.

different, but the wait is between six ` 26 weeks. How can this be? How

:13:31.:13:37.

can it be such a dramatic variation? Another thing that emerged was the

:13:38.:13:42.

doctors in France are better at spotting dementia. Why? One of the

:13:43.:13:48.

problems with the GP surgeries are that there are more of us around.

:13:49.:13:55.

Not unusual for some GPs to see 40`50 patients. You wonder how they

:13:56.:14:00.

can possibly give people the time they need. Many GPs are failing to

:14:01.:14:08.

spot of these conditions. People going on to suffer a serious

:14:09.:14:14.

illnesses. That is going to happen at some point. Always the same.

:14:15.:14:19.

Always coming back to ours. That is it for the papers. Lovely to see

:14:20.:14:25.

you. Thank you very much. Stay with us, more on the developing situation

:14:26.:14:31.

in Premier. Coming up next, Sportsday. `` Crimea.
